Drunk and Crazy by Mogwai hits the speakers as Slam comes on the air! We go to Zach and Shannan.
Zach Davis: Welcome to one of the worst booked shows of the year!
Shannan Lerch: Shut up, Zach.
Zach Davis: The guy who booked it admitted he was drunk at the time! Come on, Shannan, even you have to admit-
Shannan Lerch: We have a LOT of good matches so shut up. Let's start with our main event.
Zach Davis: In a "WCF Six Man Clusterfuck" match, Switches, D-Day, and Corey Black team up to fight Chris Avery, Mr. FPV, and Jonny Fly. And let me just mention, both FPV and Switches are booked elsewhere on the program too so-
Shannan Lerch: But they equal ratings! Seth wants to get all he can out of them!
Zach Davis: Whatever. For what its worth, this IS quite the match. Switches and Avery have an interesting feud going on, and we're still unsure as to whether Dr. Heill is behind Logan's transformation into Avery or not. In addition, D-Day lost the United States Title last week in what some could consider an upset, against Mr. FPV. And let's not forget that if anyone pins Jonny Fly, he loses his TV Title.
Shannan Lerch: We're a week away from Black versus Fly and man am I excited. Fly is unbeatable.
Zach Davis: The Epitome of Hardcore Series heats up as Kira Sakazaki takes on Gravedigger. Gravedigger is a week away from his battle with Oblivion for the Hardcore Title, and I can't wait for that one. It'll be interesting to see how the rookie fares against Gravedigger.
Shannan Lerch: Thus far, the Epitome of Hardcore Series has kinda been a bust. First, Gravedigger lost to Avery. Then Roy Speede no showed. Quite frankly, Gravedigger isn't happy about this, so I wouldn't want to be Kira when it gets taken out on him..
Zach Davis: We have a US Title match where Fear, Zombie McMorris, and Mr. FPV go at it. This one is gonna be interesting as FPV defends his belt for the first time. Zombie McMorris and Jason Fear are both big talkers so it'll be enjoyable to see them back it up.
Shannan Lerch: Speaking of FPV, he still needs to find a partner for his Tag Team Titles shot next week. Wonder if he's gonna be able to find anyone.
Zach Davis: For the People's Title, we have three members of the Society teaming up to take on the LadyKillers. Why the People's Title is on the line, I don't know.
Shannan Lerch: I do. First of all, Seth wants that belt off of Greenfever. Second of all, he wants to break up The Society, and he hopes this match brings out the greed in them and causes a rift in the faction. Straight talk.
Zach Davis: Well there you have it! I guess that is why he booked Night Rider against Oblivion, also.
Shannan Lerch: Yep!
Zach Davis: We also have some exciting exhibition matches as Tek takes on Jeff Purse and Joel Hall takes on Gage Gannon. Hall has been haunted by his past recently, I hope he gets some help soon.
Shannan Lerch: We've got an exciting triple threat too, with Kendrick Masters, Tim Vegas, and Alex Bankmanship. Should be a good one.
Zach Davis: And in our intro... and why this match is our first match I have no idea... Doc Henry and Johnny Reb are in a Reading Street Fight. This is going to be brutal, methinks...
Shannan Lerch: Can't wait!
Zach Davis: Well you don't have to because like I just said it is our first match!
Shannan Lerch: Unless someone decides to come out and talk, and-
"Ghosts N' Stuff" plays over the PA as the crowd pops. FPV walks out the entrance, his new US title in hand, and he walks on to the ring.
Zach Davis: And here is the new United States Champion, Frank Patrick Venable!
Shannan Lerch: He's probably coming to say who his partner for Timebomb is. Any ideas?
Zach Davis: Nope, but knowing FPV, it's probably someone big.
FPV slides into the ring and calls for a microphone. A ref slides on under the ropes, which FPv picks up. After his music finishes, FPV remains silent to let the crowd cheer a little while longer before speaking.
Mr. FPV: And they said I'd never make it, eh?
Again, the crowd pops, as FPV smirks a little.
Mr. FPV: Yeah, I'd love to go on about the past, how I was a nobody, all that good stuff. But frankly, that's not why I'm here. I'm here to talk about the present, because that's the only thing that matters.
This nice chunk of gold I hold in my hands is my first singles title ever, and I must say, it feels great to know you're one of the best. D-Day's good, he gave me a run for my money, but he failed. He got ahead of himself, and underestimated me. And now thanks to his flaws, I now stand here, WCF United States Champion!
The crowd cheers as he raises the belt in the air.
Mr. FPV: Now, I'll be defending this bad boy tonight against two men tonight, and while I must prepare for that, I must now look on to the future.
Y'see, I was supposed to be tagging with one Roy Speede for the Tag Team belt, but (no surprise) Roy pussied out of both his match with Gravedigger and his match at Timebomb, leaving a glaring hole in the match Seth has left me to fill.
FPV pauses as he looks at the audience for awhile, and then gets a little tempermental.
Mr. FPV: Well if Roy wants to be a quitter then fine, let him do whatever the hell he wants to do. In all actuality, we could've made this a handicap match with just me, Jeff and Nightrider and I'd still win. But no, I need a partner to fill in, so I looked. I looked hard for someone who I could trust, but someone who Roy can't even compare too. And the man I chose...I feel he'll be more than enough to take home the titles with. The man's won numerous titles in numerous federations. When I was watching GWC a few years ago during my hobo days, I knew him as Reckless Jack...
The crowd practically explodes...
Mr. FPV: But now I know him as BRAD. MOTHERFUCKING. KANE!
The infamous tones of the Saw theme begin to play through the arena before getting going into "Torcher II." People begin to get on their feet as after what seems a life time of waiting out from the back steps Brad Kane. The goes goes ballistic seeing the Hall of Famer in their arena again. Brad bows to them before walking down to the ring slapping quite a few hands along the way. He makes his way through ring side high fiving more hands with a giant smile on his face. He stops at the announcers table shaking hands with Zach Davis before totally blowing off Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: ASSHOLE!
Brad slides into the ring and pops up to his feet before going to the top turnbuckle to soak up this reaction. He leaps off and lands on his feet while the music fades off. A worker at ring side hands him a microphone as Brad inhales deeply raising it to his face but the crowd won't let him say a word.
Zach Davis: This crowd has every right to be loud right now. This man had neck surgery right after we last saw him. To be here standing now in that ring before us is nothing short of a miracle. This is what Brad Kane was meant to do and I don't think anything will stop him.
Shannan Lerch: Except a wheelchair.
Zach Davis: Well if a gold medalist can last a long time with his neck hanging on by a thread then so can Brad Kane!
Finally the crowd noise dies down to where Brad can bring the microphone back up to his lips.
Brad Kane: It's been a long few months after I had my neck operated on. There was a great chance that I'd never be able to wrestle again but here I stand before everyone telling you that I am medically cleared.
A huge pop.
Brad Kane: I've been trying to get on WCF for a while now as we've all seen on that Twitter gimmick. Circumstances have stopped me from doing so until tonight. I was going to give you this long drawn out speech about how I couldn't wrestle anymore but I'm glad I waited.
Brad pauses before looking at Mr. FPV.
Brad Kane: That man right there somehow got my number and asked me if I had anything going on. I told him no. So he asks me if I'd like to team with him for a Tag Title match on the pay per view. I figured why not. He's a good kid. I mean you heard him admit that he used to watch me back in the day when I was still in fairly good shape. But this event...
Another pause from the former World Champion as he looks down at the mat.
Brad Kane: This event means so much to me. Same event in 2007 was the night that changed my life. Not my career but my life. Before that night I was Reckless Jack and I really was reckless. That shooting star press to the floor where I jacked my neck was the night that put me into the situation I've been in the past few months. And it was in a Tag Title match, the only time I've won those belts. It was with a good friend of mine, Jay Williams as some long time fans might remember.
That gets a small chant going for Jay Williams.
Brad Kane: Half a decade later or so I get the chance to enjoy a Tag Team Title victory, not shot but victory because I want to be able to enjoy it this time. So thank you Frank. Let's get the job done.
Brad drops the microphone and smiles before backing into a corner to see what FPV has to say.
Mr. FPV: Purse, Nightrider, I hope you're taking the time to watch this, because your chance of survival at Timebomb has just dropped to zero. And Roy, I must thank you actually, thanks to you giving up, I might be able to enjoy this tag title reign.
And to the entire WCF, we're putting you on notice. Brad Kane and Mr. FPV together is gonna' be all kinds of awesome. Be ready.
"Ghosts N Stuff" hits the PA again, as FPV exits the ring Kane following behind him as the crowd continues to scream.
Shannan Lerch: What an exciting night, ladies and gentlemen! We’re going to hit the ground running with our first match of the evening, showcasing the longest running feud in WCF history!
Zach Davis: Anything could happen in this no-holds-barred Reading Streetfight! This may be the week that ends this rivalry – and someone’s career – permanently! Let’s go to our competitors, Doc Henry and Johnny Reb, already in the ring.
Shannan Lerch: There’s the bell, and Reb wastes no time going after Doc with a huge haymaker! You know, Zach, I have to wonder… how does this feud keep going? It’s been over two years, and these guys haven’t let up.
Zach Davis: That’s Southern pride for ya, Shannan. Henry and Reb are going to do this dance until one of them is retired, or dead. Ooh! Johnny caught Doc by surprise, but Doc’s fighting back now!
In the ring, Reb and Henry are throwing punches at each other like there’s no tomorrow; back and forth, wild swings and short jabs, neither man gaining the upper hand, until…
Shannan Lerch: Thumb in the eye! Classic Doc Henry! And this time, it’s totally legal!
Johnny staggers back, trying to create some distance until his vision clears again. But Henry isn’t letting him go that easily.
Zach Davis: Doc presses his advantage… Backdrop suplex! That can’t be good for the pins in Reb’s neck!
Shannan Lerch: You wouldn’t know it to look at him, Zachariah. Johnny Reb, back on his feet in an instant! He’s not letting Doc put him down that easily!
Henry goes for a clothesline; Johnny sidesteps and takes him to the mat with an arm drag. Then, just for good measure, Reb looks to lock in a sleeper, but Doc fights out of it! Doc shoves Johnny away and gets back to his feet. Reb is after him again in a split second. Henry goes for a knee to the groin.
Zach Davis: Oh! That was a close one. Reb protects the family jewels and nails Doc with a European uppercut! Now he’s going for a catapult…
Shannan Lerch: No way! Doc Henry – somehow, miraculously – springs, gazelle-like, to the top turnbuckle!
Zach Davis: “Gazelle-like?”
Shannan Lerch: What? A girl can’t take a creative writing class at the Learning Annex?
The audience, despite their intense hatred of Henry, cheers this display of athleticism and ring awareness. Doc grins at them, then turns to face Johnny, readying himself to pounce – only to find that Reb is right there, already climbing up. Doc rains down punches, to seemingly no effect. The fight for control of the turnbuckle becomes one of desperation; each wild punch threatening to topple the two men, until, at last, it happens. Henry loses his balance and falls, dragging Johnny with him. Both competitors crash hard to the thin mats surrounding the ring.
Zach Davis: Damn! I told you these guys were gonna kill each other tonight, Shannan!
Shannan Lerch: But Zach… you say that EVERY week – even when neither of them is scheduled.
Zach Davis: It could still happen… Look! Doc Henry is back on his feet first, and he’s got Reb by the hair!
Henry pulls Johnny up and promptly rams him headfirst into the crowd barrier. Reb falls flat on his back, and Henry drags him to his feet again.
Shannan Lerch: Doc walks him over to the barrier once more and proceeds to bash Johnny’s face against it! Once…twice…
Zach Davis: …three times a lady?
Shannan Lerch: …..
In the meantime, Reb has begun to recover from this onslaught – sort of. He pushes away from the guardrail and takes a step back, a little unsteady on his feet. Doc backs off, wary of the murderous look in Johnny’s eye. When Reb makes a clumsy grab for him, Henry ducks, smirking. Doc hesitates just a split second too long, though; with a feral snarl, Johnny simply grabs him by the throat, lifts him up with both hands, and tosses him into the crowd!
Zach Davis: Holy shit! If we thought Reb was pissed off before…
Shannan Lerch: This is going to get brutal. And apparently Doc has come to the same conclusion – because he’s trying to escape through the audience!
Sure enough, it looks as if Doc has had quite enough of this. He winds his way through the crowd as quickly as he can, shoving people aside as he goes. Johnny isn’t done with him yet, though, and gives chase as the mass of people parts to ease his path. Before long, Reb and Henry have disappeared from view.
Zach Davis: Get those cameras out in the lobby! We have to see what’s going on!
Several long seconds pass before the ‘Tron comes to life. A slightly shaky camera reveals a long line in front of a concession stand. The waiting customers glance up at a commotion as a pair of double doors bursts open. Reb and Henry are just out-and-out brawling at this point, oblivious to anything else. Doc grabs Johnny’s arm and whips him against the concession counter – forcing everyone in the immediate vicinity to scatter. Reb ducks a wild right and leaps over the counter. Henry is right on his heels. Doc shoves Johnny hard into a popcorn machine…which topples over, sending popcorn and piping hot butter-flavored topping into both men’s faces, temporarily blinding them.
Shannan Lerch: Well, there’s a creative use for extra butter!
Zach Davis: Now you can add it to the other “creative uses” you’ve found…
Shannan Lerch: Shut up, Zach.
Doc seems to have recovered his vision first, and slams Johnny up against the soda fountain. Various flavors of carbonated beverage spew forcefully from broken taps, so that it looks like it’s raining soda. Johnny retaliates by grabbing the nearest thing to hand – a batch of hot dogs from the grill – and begins pelting Doc with them.
Zach Davis: And it appears Reb has been taking lessons from the ‘Scot, with this unorthodox use of hot dogs. Shannan, you know a lot about the unorthodox uses of hot dogs…
Shannan Lerch: That’s two… keep ‘em comin’, funny man.
Zach Davis: We’re keeping score now? What happens when we get to three?
Shannan Lerch: Keep it up, and you’ll find out. Anyway, unorthodox as it may be, Reb’s flurry of hot dogs is enough to distract Doc Henry. Reb follows up with an elbow to the face, and then he tosses Henry over the counter. Johnny goes up…and….
Zach Davis: Southern Star! Reb’s patented shooting star senton! But it looks like it took as much out of him as it did his opponent!
Zach, of course, is right. Owing to the mess behind the counter, perhaps, Reb’s foot slips at the last second, resulting in an imperceptible botching of the move. Hard tile over harder concrete greets both competitors with unyielding welcome. Neither moves for a moment, each man trying to recover enough to simply breathe. Henry sits up first, but before he can regain his feet, Johnny makes a grab for his ankle in an effort to bring him back down. Doc kicks him off and starts crawling for the nearest exit, sensing escape just beyond. Relentless, Reb follows him. Both men are on their feet now, staggering toward the doors.
The chill night air seems to bring them to their senses, to lend a secondary burst of energy. More punches are traded. This time, it’s Johnny who seeks a knee to the groin.
Shannan Lerch: Looks like Reb finally figured out there aren’t any rules to be broken in this match! Now Doc gets to experience what it’s like to be on the receiving end of a low blow.
Zach Davis: Speaking of a low blow…
Shannan Lerch: Zach, I’m warning you – do NOT finish that thought.
Zach Davis: Uh… ahem. So this brawl has spilled out into the parking lot, and… Wait! Do you see something in the shadows back there, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: What? Where?
Zach Davis: There! Off to the right… it looks like…
Four individual shadows detach themselves from the surrounding darkness, closing in on the two combatants. Doc looks up, assessing the situation in a split second, and taps Reb on the shoulder, pointing.
Shannan Lerch: Who are those guys, Zach? What do they want?
The answer to this becomes evident when the thugs step into the light, one of them aiming a gun right at Doc and Johnny. Another demands that they hand over their wallets.
Zach Davis: It would appear, Shannan, that this is…a mugging?
Reb and Henry exchange glances; something unspoken passes between them, and Johnny gives his archrival a nod.
Shannan Lerch: Stands to reason, Zach. Reading is ranked the poorest city in America. It was only a matter of time…
Suddenly, Doc and Reb explode into action. Doc clotheslines the gunman, while Johnny executes a double knee lift to the face of the nearest thug. The gun hits the pavement, and Henry kicks it away, out of reach. The remaining two close in, thinking to take Reb and Doc by surprise. But the surprise is theirs when the combatants perform a pair of twin dropkicks that put the would-be muggers on the ground. The first two, evidently deciding Johnny and Doc aren’t worth the effort, haul ass, leaving their companions behind.
Zach Davis: HA! That’ll show them!
Henry is apparently not through with the muggers yet. He lifts one up, sets him up for a pedigree – but before he can drive the man’s head into the cracked asphalt, Johnny taps Doc on the shoulder. Doc turns – and is met with a superkick to the face! By now, the last remaining thug is on his feet again. He looks around, wide-eyed, as Johnny closes in on him. The thug backs away, hands raised defensively, shaking his head. Reb puts the guy in a headlock, preparing to take him down…
Shannan Lerch: Look out behind you, Johnny!
Out of nowhere, Doc Henry nails Johnny Reb with a spear! Police sirens sound in the distance, drawing closer. Doc doesn’t seem to hear them, his focus entirely on Reb. Doc lays boots to Reb’s midsection, over and over. New illumination, red and blue strobes, contrasts the halogen orange coming from streetlamps overhead as three police cars roll up.
Zach Davis: What the hell is this? Who called the cops?
Henry ignores the police, driving his boots into Johnny’s ribs until a pair of police officers drags him away. Another one kneels, helping Reb to his feet. In moments, both competitors are in handcuffs and being stuffed into the back of a cop car. A hitherto unnoticed official in a black and white striped shirt begins arguing with the officers – to no avail.
Shannan Lerch: Um. Well, this is awkward…
Zach Davis: I’m getting word that Reb and Henry are being arrested on a number of charges… assault, creating a panic, and public disturbance. Looks like this match is over…
The last thing the audience sees on the Jumbotron is a trio of police cars driving away.
Shannan Lerch: So…who won?
Zach Davis: The city of Reading, apparently. Not to worry, folks. I’m sure we’ll have them out of there in a matter of hours. In the meantime… let’s hear from our sponsors…
Seth Lerch is walking backstage. He walks past a janitor's closet and stops, noticing something. He sniffs the air around him and then opens the door to find... Chris Avery! The crowd in the arena cheers. Avery is smoking a doobie. Seth's eyes widen, as do Avery's. He quickly tries to hide it behind his back but the damage is done, Seth has already seen the marijuana.
Seth Lerch: LOGAN! I don't believe this! I'd expect this from the Jason Kash's of the world, but you!? I hate to say this AGAIN, Logan, for like the twentieth time, but... Logan, you're fired!
Seth walks away angrily. Avery shrugs.
Chris Avery: Good thing I'm not Logan!
He pulls his joint back out and closes the door.
No Leaf Clover by Metallica starts and the lights go down and at the top of the ramp, Kendrik's silhouette can be seen. When the beginning breaks into the hard rock, fireworks fire off and Kendrik makes his way down the ramp to the ring. When he enters the ring fireworks fire off again. After getting a look at the crowd from each section of ropes, he turns his attention to the ramp. His gaze intense the whole time.
Lights lower and "Young Men Dead" by the Black Angels starts to play. Vegas makes his way down to the ring with a sense of purpose on his face. He tends to keep eye contact the whole time as he cracks his neck, knuckles and stretches his arms while walking down the entrance. When Vegas enters the ring he maintains eye contact with his opponent as he extends his arms outwards.
"Ladies and Gentleman" by Saliva blares throughout the arena as Alex Bankmanship strolls out to the top of the rampway. He looks into the crowd with that smug look on his face. He holds up his briefcase, opens it up a little bit to show off some of his money. He quickly shuts up and smirks. He then climbs into the ring and poses on the turnbuckle with the briefcase in his hand. He jumps back down and places the briefcase in his corner.
Zach Davis: All three men are here, so here we go!
The bell sounds. Masters, Vegas, and Bankmanship all approach the middle of the ring, talking trash to one another.
Shannan Lerch: This is an exhibition match, but Masters and Vegas look like they hate each other already or something!
Bankmanship is about to way and let Masters and Vegas fight one another... but quickly, Masters and Vegas both turn and both kick Bankmanship in the gut.
Zach Davis: What the?
The two men then both hit a Double Suplex and begin stomping on Alex Bankmanship mercilessly.
Shannan Lerch: It was a ploy! Masters and Vegas are in cahoots!
Zach Davis: This is supposed to be a triple threat match, what is going on here!?
Masters picks Bankmanship up and shoves him into Vegas, who picks him up into an Inverted Death Valley Driver and then turns it into a Cutter!
Shannan Lerch: He calls that the Thought Crime!
Masters has climbed onto the turnbuckle, and Vegas picks Bankmanship up and onto the turnbuckle to Masters... who hits a Super Tiger Bomb!
Zach Davis: And that is the Irresistable Force!
Masters pins Bankmanship.
Shannan Lerch: This was barely a contest, more of a straight up attack and beatdown..
Suddenly, Amazing Alex runs out from the back and into the ring! Vegas and Masters don't see him as he slides in, and he spins Vegas around and hits him with Death Valley Drop! Masters goes to Clothesline him but Alex ducks it and Clotheslines Masters himself, sending him over the top rope! Vegas has rollen out of the ring now and Vegas and Masters regroup, backpeddling up the ramp.
Shannan Lerch: Well, Amazing Alex has just stopped their beatdown of Alex Bankmanship. I guess Alexs have to stick together?
Zach Davis: More importantly, he picked a fight with Masters and Vegas.
Zach Davis: Last week, Joel Hall was assaulted by "El Mideo Extremo".
Shannan Lerch: And my brother still wants to book him in a match.
Zach Davis: Let's go live coverage.
The scene shows "El Mideo Extremo" in front of the WCF logo. He is holding a microphone.
"El Mideo Extremo": Hello, douchebags.
"El Mideo Extremo": Last week, you all saw me destroy Joel Hall. This week, I'm afraid he won't be coming to face that dickhead, Gage Gannon.
Crowd boos more.
"El Mideo Extremo": Joel, you should've known your place. You should've obeyed my every command. And you didn't. You got what you deserved. And now, I'll take your place and make El Mideo Extremo better than you'll ever be. Now, I'll---
Before he could say anything else, a steel chair is connected to his head.
Zach Davis: What the--!?
"El Mideo" is out cold. Coming on-screen is a fully bandaged man.
Shannan Lerch: Is that who I think it is?
Zach Davis: It has to be...
The man puts down the chair and picks up the microphone.
???: What's up, Reading?! "Xtreme Fear" is in the house!!!
The crowd cheers as they recognize the man's voice.
Shannan Lerch: That voice... it's Joel Hall!
Zach Davis: And he's in the house!
Joel Hall: What I'm doing here all bandaged up? Well, I'm still not gonna no-show, right? Last week, I know you all saw that. But you call that an attack? That ain't gonna put me out of action forever, you know.
Everyone's still cheering in amazement.
Joel Hall: As for Gannon, you won that last match we had because that was a faux victory. If Seth hadn't interfered, I would've won. When we face in the ring, you'll look around. And you'll see that there aren't any jabronis competing against us too. It's just me going to whip your candy-ass in the ring. As for this masked retard, I'll deal with you later. Right now, I've got a match to attend tonight.
Joel leaves the room.
Zach Davis: And that's "Xtreme Fear" Joel Hall, folks.
Anatomy by The Devil Wears Prada is blasted through the arena. After the intro of the song is finished, the pyro starts blasting out everywhere in the arena. The ramps, the stage, the ring, titantron, everything in the arena. Coming out from backstage is Joel Hall. His body is bandaged up after last week's attack.
Shannan Lerch: Seth really doesn't like him which is why he's making him wrestle tonight.
The crowd starts to cheer for his arrival. He walks down the ramp and jumps on the canvas. Then, he rolls into the ring and looks at the crowd. He gives the devil horns sign.
Zach Davis: I just want to get to the bottom of this El Mideo Extremo business, especially after what we just saw.
Shannan Lerch: Next up, Gage Gannon!
"Run This Town" by Jay Z blares over the P.A. speaker as Gage Gannon comes sauntering out on stage with his shades on taking a look at the crowd. Gage looks around and takes his shades off as he ignores the boos of the crowd and walks down the ramp smirking his cocky smile. Gage slides into the ring and goes to the opposite turnbuckle and raises his hands out to the side.
Zach Davis: Joel Hall has been slowly joining the ranks of crazypeople here in WCF as he's haunted by El Mideo Extremo... AKA, himself.
Shannan Lerch: Truly bizarre.
The bell sounds. Gage immediately runs at Hall and Clotheslines him down and begins stomping him.
Zach Davis: Gage Gannon, right on the attack!
Gannon then picks him up and hits a Suplex. He begins stomping on him again before putting him in a Figure Four.
Shannan Lerch: Gannon starting off by wearing Hall down.
But Hall reaches the ropes, causing Gannon to release the hold. Gannon goes to pull Hall into the middle of the ring but Hall kicks him away. Gannon attempts to pick Hall up but Hall kicks him away and hits a Snap Hurricanrana! Gage stumbles back up and Hall follows up with a Underhook Powerbomb! Hall pins him.
No, Gannon kicks out.
Zach Davis: Too early!
Hall grabs Gage and puts him into a Ankle Lock!
Shannan Lerch: Submission applied! He has it locked in tight, very painful.
Indeed, Gannon yells in pain and tries to get to the ropes. He refuses to tap out. The crowd is on their feet... and eventually he makes it. Joel releases the hold. Hall quickly climbs to the top rope while Gannon begins to stand.
Zach Davis: Joel Hall, going high risk now!
Hall hits a Corkscrew Backflip into Gannon, taking him right back down to the mat! Without stomping he jumps right onto the turnbuckle again and flies off with a Phoenix Splash!
Shannan Lerch: Wow! Into a pin!
NO! Again Gannon kicks out!
Zach Davis: Joel Hall can't keep him down!
Joel picks Gannon up but Gannon shoves him away. Joel runs at him but in desperation Gage hits a Spinebuster!
Shannan Lerch: Damn! Ouch.
Gannon picks Joel up and gets him ready... he hits the DDT through the ropes!
Zach Davis: OOF!
NO! Joel Hall kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: Joel Hall won't stay down either!
Gannon isn't happy. Hall has tried to pull himself up over at the corner, but Gage runs at him and kicks him a few times before grabbing him and hitting a Superplex! He pins him again.
NO! Another kickout!
Zach Davis: Very close matchup so far!
Gannon picks Joel Hall up and throws him to the ropes, but Hall reverses it, then lifts Gannon onto his shoulders!..
Shannan Lerch: Killing With A Smile-
..and he hits an Angle Slam!
Zach Davis: Anasasis/Xenophontis!
Hall pins Gannon.
Shannan Lerch: Joel Hall picks up the win!
Zach Davis: Impressive victory.
As Joel Hall stands up, El Mideo Extremo hits the ring once more!
Shannan Lerch: Revenge!
Extremo attacks Hall from behind, hitting him with a Lariat. El Mideo Extremo begins stomping Joel Hall.
Zach Davis: Who IS this man!? Why is he doing this!?
El Mideo Extremo picks Joel Hall up and goes for a Clothesline, but Hall ducks it! The crowd cheers as Hall fires off with his own lefts and rights, and then Clotheslines Mideo over the top rope, sending both men spilling to the outside!
Shannan Lerch: Get security out here!
Joel Hall stomps El Mideo Extremo a few times before Extremo is able to get to his feet and retreats up the ramp. Hall's face contorts with anger.
Zach Davis: Well I hope we get answers sometime soon..
Zach Davis: I'm being told now that Jay Price has just arrived in the arena and he's in the backstage area looking for Seth Lerch. Let's take you backstage to see what's going on.
Shannan Lerch: Oh this should end well.
Cameras catch up with Jay Price walking backstage. He arrives at the door to Seth's office and barges right on in. Seth, who was sitting at his desk shuffling through some paperwork, looks up at the sound of his door being thrown open.
Jay Price: What the hell is all this crap I'm hearing about me being left off the Timebomb PPV? You're going to leave me off the show? ME? I'm one of your biggest names. You need me on that show.
Seth Lerch: Sorry, Price. With our expanding roster I can't book EVERYBODY on every show, especially since everyone gets paid more for PPVs. So I had to decide to leave off some of the lower card talent, such as yourself.
Jay Price: Oh that's bullshit and you know it Lerch. This is about you and me, admit it. You don't want me on your show because you know how important I am and it sickens you. You can't stand to see me week after week rolling over the so called "talent" that you're throwing at me. Am I right?
Seth Lerch: What!? No, of course you're not right! Not about that. You're right about one thing: me leaving you off the show IS personal, of COURSE I don't like you, and the sooner you're gone from here, the better.
Jay Price: Seth, I'm telling you right now that if you leave me off of this show, you're going to regret it. Spite or not, you and I both know that Timebomb isn't going to make money unless I'm part of it. Don't believe me? It's not going to be hard for Philadelphia's favorite son to convince the ticket buyers to stay away.
Seth's expression changes as he imagines the damage Price could do. As much as he hates to admit it, Price's influence in his hometown is well known.
Seth Lerch: You know what Price? You're going to be booked, all right. You're going to be booked in a match you helped bring to WCF, the Clockwork Orange House Of Fun Match. You don't have too many friends in the back, and sooner or later in a match like this someone is going to injure you. From looking at Twitter it sounds like there are quite a few guys who want in, I'd say.
A grin comes over Price's face as he nods in approval.
Jay Price: Congratulations Seth. You're not quite as dumb as I thought you were.
Price turns and leaves the room as the camera's switch back to the announce table.
Zach Davis: This is huge! We're going to have a Clockwork Orange House Of Fun match at Timebomb!
Shannan Lerch: Just thinking about the last time we had one of those matches makes me nauseus.
Zach Davis: I suppose the only question now is, who is Price going to be facing? And what will be the reward for the winner?
The show then fades out to commercial for Subway.
The lights go out and then Hollywood Undead's Tear It up plays and the camera goes to the stage there is a figure standing there. They put a spot light to the figure stands and it shows a man wearing long black basketball shorts and wearing a black pair of DC shoes and wearing a black and white LA dodger hat with a water bottle in hand. This man comes walking down the ramp as he drinks from the water bottle and bopping his head to the song.
"Won't Back Down" by Eminem blares on the PA. On the right side of the stage there is a bike ramp that extends just about to the middle of the Titan Tron. Atop the bike ramp is Jeff Purse. He is sitting on his bike, looking out upon the audience. He throws one had in the air as the audience cheers.
"You can sound the alarm
At this he sets off down the ramp. Directly across is another ramp on the left side of the stage, which Purse heads for.
"Cadillac Sevilles, Coupe Devilles
Purse flies up the other ramp, launching off of it. He pulls off a small back flip, rides down the rest of the ramp, and comes to a screeching halt in the center of the stage. He gets off, kickstands it. He looks out, smiles, and throws his arms in the air. Red and Blue pyros explode behind him.
"I cut my toes off and step on the receipt before I foot the bill
He starts off down the ramp as Kari joins him, giving him the tag title, slapping five with fans, walking very casually but at a quick pace. He puts the title over his shoulder. When he gets to the ring he jumps up on the apron and quickly makes his way in through the middle rope, while Kari walks around the outside, pumping up the crowd. Jeff stands in the center of the ring, "air guns" a corner, pyros shoot out of it. He subsequently does that for every other corner, pyros of red and white shooting out every time. He anxiously awaits his competition.
Zach Davis: Here we go!
Tek and Purse pace around the ring and eventually tie up. Purse puts Tek in a headlock, and Tek shoves him away. Purse goes into the ropes and as he comes back Tek takes him down with an Arm Drag. Purse gets back to his feet and Tek goes for a Dropkick, but Purse sidesteps it and hits Tek with a Spinning Heel Kick!
Shannan Lerch: Nice move!
Purse quickly pins Tek but Tek kicks out almost immediately. Purse then puts Tek in a Chinlock.
Zach Davis: Jeff Purse, starting to wear Tek down now.
But Tek begins to work his way up after several moments and elbows Purse in the gut. Tek escapes, bounces off the ropes and Clotheslines Purse down. Purse gets back up and Tek hits him with a Rack Bomb!
Shannan Lerch: DAMN!
Tek gets up and begins stomping on Purse. He then climbs to the top rope.
Zach Davis: What is Tek going for here?
Jeff Purse stumbles up and Tek flies off with a Flying Skytwister Face Kick! Purse goes down again and Tek pins him.
No, Purse kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: Close!
Tek signals that he's ready to end the match. He lifts Purse up and kicks him in the gut.
Zach Davis: He's going for the TLT!
But Purse shoves him away and then hits him with an Enziguri!
Shannan Lerch: Ouch!
Purse climbs to the top rope now and waits for Tek to stumble up... he hits him with a 720 DDT!
Zach Davis: The Future! This could be it!
Purse pins Tek, hooking the leg.
Purse is surprised, but signals that he's ready to end the match now. He backs up, waiting for Tek to stumble to his feet.
Shannan Lerch: He's going for The Spoke!
He hits it! Purse pins Tek, hooking the leg.
Zach Davis: Jeff Purse picks up the win!
Jeff stands, and is handed his Tag Team Title.
Shannan Lerch: One week from today, Jeff Purse and his partner Night Rider will be in the ring with the United States Champion and Brad Kane, a Hall of Famer.. he damn well better be ready!
Zach Davis: Our next match... wel-l-l....
Shannan Lerch: Well, nothing!! It looks like Seth is up to no good.... AGAIN.
Zach Davis: That's absolutely correct.
Shannan Lerch: You agree?!?
Zach Davis: Yea. Well, um....
Zach turns, notices the camera.
Zach Davis: NO!! I DON'T agree with you, Shannan!!
Shannan Lerch: Wha....
Zach Davis: Yes!! Seth Lerch is doing a fantastic job!!
Zach says, as he once again, looks at the camera.
Zach Davis: If our boss, Seth Lerch, says it's necessary for Night Rider and Oblivion to face off, then needed to be done.
Zach looks at the camera.
Shannan Lerch: OH.... MY.... GODD-D-D!!You're such a kiss ass!!
Zach Davis: No I'm not!! I appreciate the great job, our leader and terrific employer, Mr. Seth Lerch is doing!!
Shannan Lerch: Errp... I think I'm gonna get sick!!
Zach Davis: Ha-Ha!!! Very funny, Shannan!!
Shannan Lerch: I know!! By the way Zach, you have a little brown stuff on your nose!!
Shannan motions towards her nose, like wiping something off of it.
Zach Davis: Nevermind that! Let's just call the match!!
The lights go out. They stay off for about 15 seconds or so before "Change" by Deftones starts playing throughout the arena.
Shannan Lerch: Well, it looks like the WCF Hardcore champion is coming out to the ring. I suppose to give some commentary.
A spotlight hits the entrance way and out from the back, walks Gravedigger. The Hardcore Champion walks up to the Zach and Shannan and proceeds to sit down, while putting on a headset.
Zach Davis: Welcome, champ.
Gravediggers says very little.
Shannan Lerch: Hello there, Gravedigger.
Gravedigger says one thing. Enough of the yapping!! Bring out the entertainment!!
Zach Davis: The match-up starts.... now!!
Master of Puppets by Metallica hits...
The crowd groans loudly, as Shannan and Zach throw their hands up.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes Seth.
The crowd boos, as Seth walks out. He walks to the ring, trying to slap a few hands, as he walks to the commentary table. He head bangs a bit to the music, right before he puts on the headset.
Zach Davis: Hello there, Mr. Lerch.
Shannan Lerch/ Gravedigger: Kiss ass!!
Shannan Lerch: Gravedigger AND Seth Lerch?!? Random match-up, my ass!!
The sound of roaring motorcycles could be heard over the PA system as the Pyrotechnics explode down the entrance ramp and around the ring. It's Time for war by LLCOOLJ then begins as Night Rider makes his way to the ring with the Lovely Angel Fyre leading the way.
Seth Lerch: This match will be very interesting.
The lights go out. It's Time For War by LLCOOLJ begins to play. The music explodes through the arena's speakers.
Welcome to Exit 13
You said I was finished
It's time for war
Kyle Steel: Weighing in at 305 pounds, from the deepest, darkest part of a sick man's psyche...... O-O-O-OBLI-I-IVI-I-I-I-O-O-O-O-NN-N-NN-N!!!
There are a mixture of cheers and boos, more cheers than boos. The crowd stands onto their feet and rush towards the security railings. Oblivion slowly slinks out to the entrance stage, low to the ground. The Arena explodes with cheers and some boos. Oblivion has it's arms extended outward, with it's index fingers pointing out. The Vixen are nearly undressed, as they come slithering out and walks next to Oblivion. The Vixen are dressed with bra-like bikini tops, with very short skirts. They have glitter plastered everywhere. Their makeup is smeared, but maintained to be very attractive. As the music continues to play on, lazers flash throughout the arena. Thunder-like sounds rattle the arena, as lighting strike-like sounds shake the foundation of The Arena. The music continues to thrash as The Vixen are divided in two groups. As, one group are twirling around with the insanity of the music, while the other group, of The Vixens are thrashing with the music. Their energy has the Arena going completely crazy!
Oblivion slowly stands up, with it's arms extended outward, spins around. Oblivion, The Vixen, and a very changed Gathering get to ringside. Seth and Gravedigger have a look of shock, on their faces. The Gathering were placed into their P.O.D.S.(Prodigious Object Devices). They have grown larger. they are now MASSIVE. The small shadows are now muscular menaces.
Shannan Lerch: HOLY SH<bleep>T!! Look at The Gathering!! They're monsters now!!
Zach Davis: What the Hell?!? They look pissed, too. Don't move!!
Shannan Lerch: Why?
Zach Davis: Because they look like human rottweilers. They could strike at any second. No sudden movements.
Oblivion pops IT's neck and holds IT's arms outward. The Vixen rub their hands all over Oblivion's well sculpted abdominal muscles. A couple of girls begin to french kiss. The Gathering continues to slink around, scaring the crap out of the crowd, nearby. Oblivion proceeds to slide under the ring ropes and is walking over to a corner. The half naked women slide into the ring, in various sexual manners. Oblivion climbs up to the second turnbuckle and is raising IT's arms to an mostly cheering crowd. Oblivion jumps down and walks over to the center of the ring. The Gathering slithers away under the ring, with blood on their hands. The Gathering peaks out, from under the ring. They proceed to flip off Seth Lerch and Gravedigger. Several thousand cameras flash throughout the arena, as Oblivion strikes a muscular pose, with The Vixen rubbing all over Oblivion. All of the women, of The Vixen, begin to kiss. The Gathering peak, from under the ring, as they begin to snarl and bark, while white foam drips out of their mouths.
IT'S TIME FOR WAR
Oblivion and Night Rider are about to lock up, when they stop, turn around and proceed to flip off Seth Lerch and Gravedigger!!
Zach Davis: What the Hell!? They can't do that!!
Shannan Lerch: Why the Hell not?!? It's obvious what Seth is trying to do!!
Zach Davis: So what! They STILL have to perform.
Both, of the big men, just stand ther with their arms folded, staring right at Gravedigger and Seth Lerch. Seth starts to get angry and tears away the headset and grabs for a mic. Seth Stands up.
Seth Lerch: If you two don't start wrestling, RIGHT NOW, you two are fired!!
Zach Davis/Shannan Lerch: WHAT?!?
Seth Lerch: That's right.... FIRED!! SO, get to it fellas.
Oblivion and /night Rider shrug their shoulders. the begin to slowly shuffle, almost lightly bouncing around the ring. They both stop, as they slap their right hands together, right before the lock up with a collar and elbow tie-up.
Shannan Lerch: Both me are trying to use their strength against the other. Oblivion proceeds to push Night Rider into a nearby corner. The crowd anticipates a quick strike. But, Oblivion proceeds to act like he was about to strike Rider, but instead throws up IT's arms and slowly backs up. Night Rider was caught off, a little bit, by Oblivion walking backwards. They both get to the center of the ring. They are about to lock up, once again....
Zach Davis: European Uppercut by Oblivion!
Shannan Lerch: Another!!
Shannan Lerch: And another!!
WHAM!! WHAM!! WHAM!!
Zach Davis: Night Rider fights back with a flurry of fists.

Shannan Lerch: THE BLACK HOLE!! Oblivion is going for the pin!!
Gravedigger: I'll be back.
Shannan Lerch: Wait... what?!? HEY!!!

Seth Lerch: ENOUGH!! GET BACK IN THE DAMN RING AND..... DESTROY EACH OTHER....DAMN IT!! JUST DO IT OR... OR... YOU'RE FIRED!!
By this time, Gravedigger creeps around tosses Night Rider back into the ring. As The Vixens distract the referee by showing their ass and their breasts, Gravedigger clips Oblivion and tosses The Monster into the ring!! Gravedigger screams out something to Night Rider....
Gravedigger: FINISH HIM OFF!!
Night Rider let's Oblivion to stand up. Rider grabs Oblivion and Irish whips him.
Oblivion reverses the Irish whip and tosses Rider into the ropes...
Rider hangs on and....
Shannan Lerch: Both wrestlers fall out of the ring!! They are right in front of us!!
Oblivion stands up first and proceeds to stomp down onto Rider, before picking him up and Irish-whipping him towards the commentary table...
Night Rider reverses the Irish Whip and Oblivion flies towards the commentary table and flies across and nailing Seth Lerch with a modified Clothesline from Hell!! Seth lays in heap. While the referee still has his back to the action, Gravedigger grabs a chair and smashes, both Oblivion and Night Rider across the back. Neither monster flinched.
Zach Davis: UH-OH!!
Both Night Rider and Oblivion roar at Gravedigger and charge at him. They hit Gravedigger with a double clothesline!! Stanley Moser is slowly turning around.

Zach Davis: I don't believe it!! Night Rider has defeated Oblivion!! Uh-oh here comes the rest of MS-13!!
The group, along with Gravedigger and Seth Lerch proceed to stomp down on Oblivion and Night Rider!! After a few minutes, MS-13 and Seth Lerch raise their arms to a booing crowd!!
Zach Davis: Hey Shannan, guess what time it is?
Shannan Lerch: Zach we usually don't do this bit until the end of the show.
Zach Davis: Oh. Guess I just got a little excited.
Shannan Lerch: It's all right Zach. I'm sure it's not the first time your excitement caused you to be premature.
Zach Davis: Uh, err, let's get on with the action.
"Who Runs This" by Kingspade hits the speakers as Nic Daniels, Eric Price and Steeltoe Joe walk out onto the stage.
Shannan Lerch: The Society will defiantly have their hands full tonight, but the reward will be worth it.
Zach Davis: Indeed Shannan. But one has to wonder if the opportunity to pin the People's Champion comes, will they be able to decide who gets to pin him amicably?
Shannan Lerch: *whistles* Geez Zach, way to break out the thesaurus on that one.
The trio makes their way down the entrance ramp toward the ring. All three hop up onto the apron and enter the ring as their music fades out.
All of the lights in the arena drop as the stage and ramp light up with an eerie red glow. The smarks in attendance get ready to start up a "Jay Fucking Price" chant when suddenly "Run Rabbit Run" by Rob Zombie kicks in over the speakers. The aggressive drums kick in but are drowned out by the crowd who are split in half by boos and cheers as Jay Price and Greenfever emerge from the darkness.
Zach Davis: And here come The LadyKillerz. Shannan I know you hate them, but what are your thoughts on the reformation of Price and Greenfever?
Shannan Lerch: They're a definite boost to the tag team division, but I'm not sure if the cost is worth the reward. Putting these two together just seems like a recipe for a massacre.
The two make their way down the ramp toward the ring, not paying attention to the trash being hurled at them. Price stops and walks over to one of his few fans who is holding up a sign. "Shatner <3's The LadyKillerz". Price gives the sign a thumbs up and then continues on to the ring. Greenfever slides into the ring as Price opts for the ring steps. The music fades out and the lights come back on as they discuss strategy in their corner. The referee calls for the bell...
...and this match is officially underway. Daniels and E. Price step out onto the apron as Steeltoe Joe waits in the ring. Greenfever and Price are in their corner, currently embroiled in a battle of rock, paper, scissors to see who will start. After the third tie, the referee walks over and tells them to stop with the shenanigans. Price mumbles something about pistol whipping as they go at it one more time. They tie once again. Price then points to something in the crowd behind Greenfever. Greenie turns around and Price slips out onto the apron. The crowds loving the antics as they laugh accordingly.
Shannan Lerch: It's obvious that neither of The LadyKillerz are taking this match seriously.
Zach Davis: And it doesn't look like that's sitting well with The Society.
Steeltoe Joe has had enough of the hi-jinks and he marches across the ring. Greenie is still scanning the crowd when Joe walks up behind him and taps him on the shoulder. Fever turns around and Joe chastizes for the silliness. Fever responds with a right hand to the face. Joe rubs the spot on his cheek and then goes to tie-up. Fever ducks the massive outstretched arms and gets behind him. Price is busy chatting up a blonde in the front row from the apron when Greenie slaps him on the back and steps out onto the apron. Price turns back around to see what hit him and sees the referee telling him to get in the ring. Price shoots Greenie a dirty look as he enters the ring.
Zach Davis: All right, maybe now we'll see some wrestling.
Joe goes for the tie-up and Price ducks it. Price gets behind Joe, wraps his arms around his waist, lifts him up and then plants him with an olympic style mat slam. Joe goes to push himself up when Price slaps him across the back of the head.
Shannan Lerch: The lack of respect is simply deplorable.
Joe gets up to his feet and the look on his face says it all. Price responds with a right but Joe shakes it off and then levels Price with a crushing clothesline. Joe with the quick cover.
Price quickly kicks out before two but the message has been sent. Both men get to their feet and tie-up. Joe takes control and applies a side headlock. Joe leads Price over to his side of the ring and throws him in the corner.
Zach Davis: Price is in no man's land over there.
Joe fires off a couple quick punches and then tags in Daniels who enters the ring. The pair double team Price, taking turns throwing punches before the referee finally gets Joe out of the ring. Daniels now pulls Price out of the corner and whips him toward the ropes. Price hits them and comes back as Daniels tries for a clothesline. Price ducks it and hits the ropes on the opposite side. Price comes back and tries for a shoulder block but Daniels sidesteps him and Price crashes onto the mat. With Price down, Daniels rushes toward the ropes and springs off with a Lionsault but Price is able to get his knees up.
Shannan Lerch: Oh, that couldn't have felt good.
Price is the first one back up to his feet and he's kind enough to help Daniels up to his before pulling him and snapping off a suplex. Price now with the quick cover.
Daniels quickly kicks out before the two count. Price gets up and pulls Daniels with him. Price shoots Daniels into the ropes and when he comes back he slaps on the sleeper hold. Daniels tries fighting it when from out of nowhere Price turns it into an inverted headlock backbreaker. Price again with a quick cover.
And again Daniels kicks out. Price rolls off and heads over to his corner where he tags in Greenfever. Greenfever enters and the two walk over to Daniels. They pull him to his feet as the referee yells for Price to leave the ring. They then whip Daniels into the ropes and then lift him up and over with a double back body drop. The referee finally gets Price out of the ring as Greenfever watches Daniels try to crawl to his corner.
Zach Davis: Daniels really needs to make the tag here.
Greenfever lets him get about halfway across the ring and then walks over and grabs him by the legs. Daniels rolls over onto his back and kicks Greenfever square in the jaw and then scrambles over to his corner where he tags in Eric Price. The fresh member of The Society rushes into the ring and right into a roundhouse kick from Greenfever. Steeltoe Joe has seen enough and he runs into the ring and hits Greenfever from behind with a double forearm smash. Greenfever drops to the mat as Joe raises his arm in the air.
Shannan Lerch: This is mayhem!
The referee is trying to get control of the chaos when Jay Price enters the ring and goes after Joe. He and the big man trade shots, with Joe finally getting the upperhand. He whips Price into the ropes. Price comes back and Joe tries to catch him but Price does a baseball slide right between his legs. Price springs back up to his feet near the ropes and Joe charges. Price drops to the mat, pulling the top rope with him and Joe tumbles out of the ring. Price gets back up to his feet in time to see Daniels charging him. Price ducks down and lifts Daniels up and over the top rope, sending him crashing on top of Joe.
Zach Davis: And The LadyKillerz are firmly in control.
Price points to Greenfever and motions for him to lift E.Price up. Greenfever nods and pulls E.Price up to his feet. Price climbs out onto the apron and heads up to the top turnbuckle. Greenfever pulls E.Price over to the corner and then lifts him up in the electric chair position.
Shannan Lerch: What is this?!?
Price grabs hold of E.Price by the head...AND LEAPS OFF WITH A DOWNFALL! Greenfever falls forward, aiding in the face smashing.
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Fever and Price get back up to their feet and bump fists. Joe and Daniels are starting to stir outside of the ring and Price runs for the ropes before diving through them, taking both down with a suicide dive. Meanwhile back in the ring Greenfever is going for the pin.
"Run Rabbit Run" hits the speakers as Price slides back into the ring. The referee brings Greenfever his People's Title and then raises both men's hands in victory. Joe and Daniels pull Eric out of the ring and all but carry him up the entrance ramp as Price and Greenfever continue to celebrate in the ring.
Zach Davis: And The LadyKillerz keep on rolling. At what point do you start to wonder what team could stop these two?
The show fades out to commercial as Price and Greenfever exit the ring and head toward the back.
Shannan Lerch: Next match is Mr. FPV putting his newly won United States Title on the line against Zombie McMorris and Jason Fear.
Zach Davis: That’s right Shannan, Zombie and Fear are both getting this opportunity very early in their WCF careers and we’ll see what they can make of it.
Shannan Lerch: Jason Fear is already in the ring and ready to go!
"Never Gonna Stop" blasts through the PA as Zombie McMorris makes his way onto the stage all pumped up. Hopping on the balls of his toes and shaking his arms out, Zombie rushes the ring as the music kicks up. Sliding into the ring he makes it across the ring, stepping on the bottom rope and points to the crowd before making his way to the corner turn buckle and pointing to them again and beating his chest in excitement.
Zach Davis: Zombie has certainly been impressive in the early going of his career.
Red and black strobe lights begin flashing, as the electronic beat of "Ghosts N Stuff" by deadmau5 begins to blast eardrums, when Mr. FPV emerges from the curtains to a round of applause from the crowd. He runs down the ramp, giving fans highfives along the way before leaping under the bottom rope into the ring. FPV climbs to one of the turnbuckles and fistbumps to the music. Many fans join him. He does this with all of the other turnbuckles before moving to the center of the ring in a lotus position.
Zach Davis: FPV won a gutty matchup last week to win the US Title and already is putting it on the line.
Shannan Lerch: He hurt his knee in that matchup last week, and we’ll see what shape he’s in tonight.
Zach Davis: Everyone is in the ring now and this match is ready to begin.
Ding, Ding, Ding
The bell rings and all three men leave their corner and converge in the center of the ring. McMorris and Fear both begin the matchup by sending punches toward FPV. FPV ducks under both and them and runs off the ropes bouncing back and knocking both of his challengers down to the mat with a clothesline. FPV stomps away at the face of Jason Fear before going over to Zombie McMorris and picking him up to his feet.
FPV whips Zombie into the corner and then runs at him executing a body splash and jarring Zombie’s back into the ring post. FPV grabs McMorris and executes a scoop-handle slam. At this point Jason Fear has risen to his feet and grabs FPV as he tries to get up. Fear sends a knee to FPV’s skull forcing the US Champion back onto the mat. Fear returns to the boots to the head from earlier and finishes it by executing a leg drop.
Zach Davis: This match is starting off quick.
Shannan Lerch: This is a tough position for FPV to be in. All it takes is Zombie or Fear to pin each other and he loses the belt.
Fear brings FPV back to his feet, sets him in a side headlock, and then takes him down to the mat with a DDT. Fear gets back to his feet and Zombie McMorris rises to his as well. Zombie looks over at Fear and then runs and spears him into the canvas. McMorris then locks in a front-face sleeper hold on Fear. Fear begins squirming around on the mat trying to break the hold. As this is going on FPV gets to his feet and runs to the turnbuckle directly behind McMorris and hops to the top. He jumps off and sends an elbow into the skull of McMorris breaking the hold.
Zach Davis: FPV may have just saved the match right there!
FPV gets up grabs McMorris and disposes of him over the top rope. He turns his attention back to Jason Fear. FPV grabs Fear and picks him straight up into the air and takes him down to the mat with a vertical suplex. He follows it up with a leg drop to complete ‘The Duster’ combo. FPV goes for the cover.
Shannan Lerch: First cover of the night!
Zach Davis: Jason Fear just reversed the cover!
Shannan Lerch: He’s grabbing the tights!!
Mr. FPV just barely kicks out.
Zach Davis: Holy shit, Jason Fear almost had him on the reversal!
Both men get back to their feet. Fear sends a sharp right hand to the face of Mr. FPV and then whips him across the ropes. As FPV bounces back Fear ducks down and sends him flying over his head to the mat. FPV scrambles to his feet but Fear is quicker and sends him right back to the canvas with a spinebuster. Fear goes over to the ropes and does the Hulk Hogan signature ‘I can’t hear you’ before raising his thumb in the air, and then flipping it to a thumbs down signal.
Zach Davis: You know what that means Shannan, Jason Fear is looking to end this match right here!
Fear grabs FPV and picks him up into the air. However, Zombie McMorris has just slid into the ring from behind Fear. With FPV raised in the air McMorris sends a boot to the back of Fear’s leg causing him to drop FPV. Fear turns around and is leveled by a big boot from Morris. Morris walks over to the ropes and climbs to the top. He leaps off and brings his fist down hard on Jason Fear. McMorris goes for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: Jason Fear kicks out!
Zach Davis: That was close, Shannan. FPV better wake up!
Zombie gets back to his feet and brings Fear up with him. He notices FPV rises to his feet and drops Jason Fear and grabs FPV instead. He puts Mr. FPV in a side headlock and walks over to the turnbuckle. Zombie begins violently slamming Venable’s head into the turnbuckle. McMorris grabs FPV’s arm and then whips him the length of the ring into the opposite turnbuckle. Venable spins to allow his back to take the blow, and McMorris charges toward him. Venable ducks out of the way and Zombie McMorris runs straight into the turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: That had to hurt!
McMorris slumps to the ground and FPV turns his attention to the fallen Jason Fear. Mr. FPV lifts Fear up and catapults him into the turnbuckle!
Shannan Lerch: The Pearly Gates!
Zach Davis: Mr. FPV IS GOING TO WIN!
Mr. FPV walks over to Fear and hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: NO!
Shannan Lerch: From out of nowhere Zombie McMorris broke up the three count!
Zombie McMorris grabs hold of FPV and hits the ‘World Tour 69.’ Zombie gets and then grabs Jason Fear, picks him up, and delivers the ‘Axe Wound.’
Zach Davis: Jason Fear is taking a beating right tonight!
Shannan Lerch: What an incredible turn of events by Zombie McMorris.
Zach Davis: He’s going for the cover…
Shannan Lerch: NO! Mr. FPV FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!
Zach Davis: FPV BREAKS UP THE COUNT BEFORE THREE!
Shannan Lerch: How did he get up in time!
McMorris can’t believe it. He gets and starts pounding away at FPV. FPV finally ducks one of the punches, grabs hold of McMorris and catapults him into the ringpost!
Zach Davis: PEARLY GATES ON MCMORRIS!
Instead of walking over to McMorris, FPV simply falls onto the still down Jason Fear and initiates the count.
Shannan Lerch: Mr. FPV does it again! He’s your winner!
The bell rings and the referee brings the United States Title into the ring and give it to Frank Venable. Venable raises it high in the air.
Zach Davis: What a great effort by Zombie McMorris, but just too much Mr. FPV tonight.

Shannan Lerch: Only time will tell Zach, only time will tell.
The lights go out. They stay off for about 15 seconds or so before "Change" by Deftones starts playing throughout the arena. A spotlight hits the entrance way and out from the back walks Gravedigger, escorted by Adrian and JJ.
The crowd boos heavily and the trio stops on top of the ramp as Gravedigger looks around smiling. They then walk down the ramp and over to the ring steps. Adrian walks over to the side of the ring, reaches up and pulls himself up onto the apron with one of the ropes and then climbs into the ring. Gravedigger climbs the steps first and turns to JJ, pulling up the middle rope and stepping down on the bottom one, as she steps through the gap into the ring.
Gravedigger steps through the top and middle rope and walks over to one of the turnbuckles and stands on the middle pad and holds the hardcore belt high over his head as the crowd rains boos down upon him.
Kyle Steel: And the Hardcore Champion, GRAVEDIGGER!!!
Shannan Lerch: I am actually pretty excited for this match Zach. This new guy has potential to be in the Hardcore title contender-ship.
Zach Davis: That he does Shannan, that he does. Lets just hope Gravedigger doesn't murder him on in his second match here.
Gravedigger and Kira stand in their respective corners waiting for the bell. Gravedigger just leans on the ropes, smiling at the new comer as Kira jumps around and stretches. The ref signals for the bell and Kira walks toward Gravedigger. Gravedigger smiles, and offers one free shot to Kira. The newcomer goes to slap Gravedigger, but rookie mistake, as Gravedigger catches his arm and sends Kira back toward his corner with a powerful right hand. And that's all it takes before Gravedigger is throwing left and rights at Kira until the new comer winds up back in his corner up against the turnbuckle. Gravedigger whips the man to the other corner and follows, but Kira, using his momentum jumps up and off the middle turnbuckle and nails Gravedigger in the chest with a springboard dropkick. Off the ropes again goes Kira as Gravedigger starts to get up, only to be knocked down again by an excellent enzuigiri. Kira, not wanting the momentum to shift, throws himself up on the top rope back flipping off for a moonsault, but Gravedigger is up, and Gravedigger catches him and hits the new man with a powerful sidewalk slam.
Shannan Lerch: Ouch, just when the new guy was really going.
Zach Davis: He is a quick one. But Gravedigger is a veteran, he as dealt with all kinds of them before.
Shannan Lerch: What is Gravedigger doing here...
Gravedigger has Kira up, and is setting him up for a powerbomb. He picks up him up, and in a flash slams Kira's back on the mat. But Gravedigger doesn't let go, he picks him up again and slams him down again, but still, Grave digger doesn't let go. He picks him up one more time, and while standing, throws Kira down to the mat. Gravedigger, smiling as the crowd boos, goes to the outside. Under the ring he finds a wooden table, and sets it up on on the outside. He sets it just perfectly so for Kira to go through it, Kira, on the other hand, is trying to get up on the opposite side of the ring. Gravedigger climbs up to the apron, and at the time, Kira comes rushing toward him, and with a huge dropkick, sends Gravedigger through the table he had just set up. Gravedigger lies there as Kira lies in the ring, neither man moving much.
Zach Davis: And Gravedigger goes through his own table.
Shannan Lerch: Kira played it smart there, I don't know if that was instinct or pure adrenaline, but smart move.
Kira has since rolled out onto the outside, Gravedigger slowly making his way up with the help of the guardrail. However, like some magic, as Kira is coming Gravediggers way, Gravedigger burst out and nails a wicked clothesline to Kira, causing him to flip through the air. As Kira is down, Gravedigger pulls the top stair off the stairs and throws it to the side, he grabs Kira, and with his back facing the stair, hits Kira with a snap suplex, Kira's back colliding with the stair. He winces in pain, as Gravedigger gets to his feet. Gravedigger picks Kira up again, the man slumps into Gravediggers arms. Gravedigger sends him face first into the turnbuckle pole, Kira falling back and hitting the steel stair once again. Gravedigger picks Kira up for another suplex, but upon attempting the suplex, Kira stops it with his leg, and is able to fight his way out of the predicament, coming around Gravedigger, and bring the Hardcore champ down on the stair with a russian leg sweep. With both men down again, its any ones game.
Zach Davis: This is crazy, they are using that stair like its another participant in the match.
Shannan Lerch: Well in a match like this anything is a participant in the match.
Gravedigger is the first to stir, as he is the less damaged at this point. He walks to the announce table and starts to undress it, Shannan Lerch and Zach Davis moving out of the way wisely. Unbeknown to the champion though, the young new comer has snuck behind him, and he is holding the ring bell. Gravedigger turns around to eat a face full of ring bell, the smash so intense both men go to the ground.
Shannan Lerch: We have blood. Blood is confirmed.
Adrian has had enough, watching Gravedigger get busted was his last straw. He makes his way over to the two men, however, Kira, ready for this, throws the bell at Adrian. He catches it and before he can lower it from his face, Kira dropkicks the bell to smacking Adrian in the face, sending him to the ground. Kira is up now and ready to take the pin the Hardcore champ. Kira rolls the champ in the ring and covers him.
Gravedigger kicks out after two. Kira springs up and waits almost on the opposite side of the ring as Gravedigger tries to make it to his feet. JJ has slid a chair in the ring, though, by Gravedigger, which he grabs as he makes his way to his feet. He turns and as Kira is charging him ready for a Gakuran Punch, however Gravedigger, thinking fast, smacks Kira in the face with the chair instead, sending him to the ground, bloody.
Zach Davis: And both competitors are busted open here!
Shannan Lerch: Shh, look, Gravedigger has something planned here.
Gravedigger puts the chair in the middle of the ring and picks up Kira. Both men trading blood. He picks the smaller man and BAM Respecto right onto the chair. Kira lands hard and doesn't move at all. Gravedigger points to the top rope, as he slowly but surely makes his assent to the top. He looks out at Kira, laying on the chair in the middle of the ring and flies off the top rope.
Zach Davis: DEATH FROM ABOVE, DEATH FROM ABOVE!
For his efforts, however, Kira rolls out of the way and Gravedigger comes down hard on the chair. And quickly, Kira pins Gravedigger, hooking the far leg.
The fans prematurely cheer as Gravedigger kicks out of the pin at the last second. Kira kips up rather quickly, and behind him, sliding into the ring, is Chester. He has a wooden Kendo stick. Kira turns to face him, ducking under the swing Chester gives him, and comes back with a harsh Gakuran Kick sending Chester right out of the ring onto the mats below. Kira turns back to Gravedigger, who kicks Kira in the midsection. He then sends Kira right back down to the mat, nailing a beautiful South of the Boarder. The fans going wild, Gravedigger makes the pin.
The fans explode as Kira is able to kick out. Gravedigger cannot believe it. He slams his fist down on the mat, and moves to the outside again, goes under the ring, and grabs a trash can. He sets it up, on its side, and gets back in the ring. He picks Kira up, in the middle of the ring, and hoists him up for a power bomb, however he runs to the ropes, but again Kira thinking smart uses Gravediggers momentum against him and goes down on the other side of the ropes onto the apron, sending Gravedigger out and onto the trash can with a huge frankestiener.
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Shannan Lerch: Did you see that Zach? Holy shit is right.
Kira, looking around at the approving fans, back flips off of the apron and on to Gravedigger. He gets up and rolls Gravedigger into the ring. Kira grabs a chair on his way in, but Gravedigger rushes him with a huge Grave Marker, slamming the chair into Kira once again, making the blood gush even harder. Gravedigger takes a knee to regain composure. He looks down at the announce table and smiles. He quickly picks up Kira and puts him backwards on the top turnbuckle. Gravedigger moves to the apron, and begins climbing the turnbuckle. When he is on top, he hits Kira a few times, making his cut worse. He picks Kira up, so he is straight in the air, the two of them making a very tall, very powerful straight line, and comes down with the new comer, sending him through the announce table, with a giant superplex.
Crowd: HOLY FUCK!! HOLY FUCK!! HOLY FUCK!!
Zach Davis: Oh my god Shannan. Gravedigger could have just killed himself and Kira with that one.
Shannan however cannot respond as her headset was ripped off in the commotion of fleeing the announce table. Gravedigger and Kira lay there on the ground, motionless, both men just broken. Adrian, however, who is up from his earlier foible, grabs Kira and rolls him into the ring. Doing the same for Gravedigger, however slapping him a few times to help bring him to. Gravedigger slowly and weakly covers Kira.
Kyle Steel: The winner of this match up, The Epitome of Hardcore, GRAVEDIGGER!!
Zach Davis: We are going to need some help out here, these men are just broken.
Adrian, Chester, and JJ help Gravedigger get up and out of the ring, however officials have to come and escort Kira out of the ring, he can barely stand.
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. A solitary light hits the stage. Out from the back walk six men. These are big dudes, too. Vikings to be exact. Three stand on each side of the entrance. They're all carrying shields and swords, long hair, beards, legit looking vikings. "Locust" by Machine Head hits the PA system and the place explodes into cheers. The lights flash to the music as it chugs along. As soon as the lyrics kick in, Corey Black emerges from the back wearing the WCF World Title. He's decked out in viking garb as well. Armor, shield, sword, and even a viking helm with face plate. Colorful lights now circle the night sky and through the crowd. CD marches down to the ring, all six vikings behind him in two single file lines. The crowd is going ba-fucking-nanas. As he reaches the ring, CD places his shield against the ring, and his sword by the steps. Corey then drops the viking armor and furs off his body, and takes off the horned helm. CD rolls into the ring itself and sits in the far corner, waiting for the match to begin. As he does, the six vikings walk up and remain on the stage for the duration of the match.
Zach Davis: The World Champ looks like he’s in the zone tonight. Will we see him pull out a victory?
Shannan Lerch: Well I don't know if you saw but he got attacked by.. somebody!.. following one of his promos this week. No idea who that was or why.. could it have been Fly?
Suddenly, hundreds of balloons begin to drift down into the ring as “GreasePaint and Monkey Brains” by White Zombie squawks through the speaker system. The lights flicker to a momentary darkness. Just as the song kicks into gear, the lights blare back on - revealing Switches glaring down from a top turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: Without a doubt. After all, look who Corey’s teaming with!
Shannan Lerch: This man is... I don’t know what to say. He’s loco!
The lights in the stadium dim to pitch black Bulletproof by 12 Stones blares in the speakers with lights swinging around the stadium lighting up the darkness from the dimmed lights. In cue with the music, pyros of red, white and blue go off when the sound of BANG!!! from Bulletproof. The pyros continue to go off on cue with the word being said. After the third pyro goes off the lights focus on the entrance of the stage where Donald Deruty is standing with his head tilted down. He falls to his knees and throws his hands up in the air where a final set of multi-colored pyros is fired. At the signal of the final pyros the dimmed lights turn back on and light the whole stadium with red, white, and blue lights. D-Day jumps to his feet as soon as the lights are back on. He takes his time walking down the ramp, as he gives high fives and shakes the hands of the fans. Once he reaches ringside he slowly walks up to the steel steps where he goes one step at a time until he reaches the ropes where he enters the ring with a swaggery hop to his walk. He looks up at the titantron where the sights of his memorial moments in his WCF career can be seen.
Zach Davis: But he’s not the only one, Shannan. The American Hero is on The Champ’s team too!
Shannan Lerch: But that might not be such a good thing! When was the last time Deruty won a match?
Zach Davis: Dunno, Shannan. Can’t tell you, to be honest.
Shannan Lerch: Somebody check the history books, please!
Red and black strobe lights begin flashing, as the electronic beat of "Ghosts N Stuff" by deadmau5 begins to blast eardrums, when Mr. FPV emerges from the curtains to a round of applause from the crowd. He runs down the ramp, giving fans highfives along the way before leaping under the bottom rope into the ring. FPV climbs to one of the turnbuckles and fistbumps to the music. Many fans join him. He does this with all of the other turnbuckles before moving to the center of the ring in a lotus position.
Zach Davis: Speaking of Deruty’s losing streak, that’s the man that beat him just last week for the US Title.
Shannan Lerch: And it looks like he’s sporting the US Title in a grand fashion.
The lights in the arena go out. Blackness is all that prevails around as the crowd anxiously stirs. After a few seconds, blue strobes emerge on the stage zooming around in no particular pattern. The strobes center themselves onto the stage, overlapping themselves and illuminating the silhouette of a man. “The Champ” by Ghostface Killah begins playing and the crowd begins to boo. The lights flicker on and off in conjunction with pyros shooting upward. The lights turn on fully and Jonny Fly is seen standing of the stage. Fly stares out at the crowd and smirks at their reaction. He slowly begins walking down the ramp oblivious to those shouting at him from the crowd.
Zach Davis: And then there’s the TV Champ, Jonny Fly, who’s getting a title shot against Corey Black at Timebomb!
Shannan Lerch: But remember, Zach, it was Corey Black whose team won last week, and it was Black who got the pin.
The lights flicker on and off and Fabolous' Lights Out plays over the speakers to a loud chorus of boo's. Logan walks directly from behind the curtain and to the ramp. He looks out at the crowd to the left and then to the right and then throws his arms into the air while a display of fireworks explode behind him in yellow color. Logan looks out at the crowd in disgust as he walks down the ramp and rolls into the ring. He stands up on the middle rope and 'flenches' at the crowd as if he's going to beat all of their ass. The vicious Truth turns his focus onto his opponent as his song fades out.
Zach Davis: And last but certainly not least, There’s Chris Avery, WCF’s local black man.
Shannan Lerch: What are you talking about, Zach, Chris Avery certainly is the least among these six!
Zach Davis: Shannan! That’s racist!
Shannan Lerch: Well, I can’t help it if the outcast of this match is a ni-
Zach Davis: Shannan! Watch your mouth!
Shannan Lerch: Fine, fine, whatever.
Avery and FPV step out onto the ring apron as Black and Deruty step out onto the opposite side, and Fly and Switches start out the match. The two circle around one another, staring one another down, and finally they lock up, collar and elbow. Fly backs Switches into the ropes, but Switches reverses it, spins Fly around, and bounces him off the ropes, sending him running across the ring. Fly rebounds and clotheslines Switches to the mat.
Shannan Lerch: And Team Fly getting the upper hand here it looks like.
Zach Davis: We’ll see. It’s only the very start of the match so far, Shannan.
Switches gets right back to his feet, and Fly catches him with a right, followed by a left, and then drops him with a spinning neckbreaker. Fly gets to his feet, and tags in Chris Avery.
Zach Davis: Here comes Chris Avery, with a great opportunity to shut haters like you up, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: Zach, he’ll screw up like he always does. Trust me.
Avery steps between the ropes and immediately goes to work on Switches, first dropping a knee across his chest before rolling to his feet, and he grabs one of Switches’ arms, and pulls him up. Without missing a beat, Avery whips Switches into the corner. NO! Switches reverses it and throws ‘The Truth’ into the corner. He follows it up with a running clothesline into the corner, and turns Avery around, throwing him to the ground. Switches gets to the top turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: And Switches the Clown going high risk here!
Shannan Lerch: I told you Avery couldn’t get it done, Zach. Black guys never do.
Zach Davis: Enough with the racism!
Shannan Lerch: Or what?
Zach Davis: I... I dunno.
Shannan Lerch: Then you can deal with it.
Switches takes off just as Avery gets to his feet, and goes for a diving headbutt, but Avery reverses it into a sit-out DDT from mid-air, and hooks the leg on Switches!
Zach Davis: And Chris Avery with the near-fall following a nice reversal!
Shannan Lerch: He still won’t be able to follow it up. He’ll end up screwing up, and-
Avery gets to his feet, and tags the outstretched hand of Jonny Fly.
Zach Davis: There’s the tag! What were you saying, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: Never mind.
Fly lunges to the top rope and waits. Switches slowly gets to his feet, and Fly nails a flying clothesline, dropping Switches to the mat. Fly rolls to his feet, and stares directly at Corey Black. He points directly at Black before running, springboarding off the second rope, and going for a lionsault, but Swtiches gets his knees up and Fly grabs his ribs in pain.
Zach Davis: And Switches with the nice reversal!
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, but will he be able to take advantage?
Switches and Fly get to their feet about the same time, and the two stare down. Fly raises an arm and points directly at Corey Black again, and Switches looks over. He walks over to his corner and tags in the World Champ, and the crowd ROARS in approval as Black steps between the ropes into the ring, laughing and applauding at the courage displayed by Fly.
Zach Davis: What’s this? Where’s the fighting?
Shannan Lerch: Just wait for it, Zach. These two obviously have a lot riding on this, and neither of them is going to make any stupid mistakes heading into Timebomb.
Fly dashes forward, looking for a dropkick, but Black sidesteps, and Fly quickly takes advantage, his feet landing on the second turnbuckle, and he uses the momentum to launch backward as Black turns around, and catches him with a moonsault, dropping Black to the mat. He hooks the leg.
Fly rolls backward to his feet, and Black rolls quickly to his feet, and Fly swings a right hook. Black ducks, and as Fly spins from the force of the swing, Black catches him, and hits him with a German suplex. Black gets to his feet, bounces off the ropes, and hits a leg drop across the throat of the Television Champ. He hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: These two showing that they won’t be giving up easily here, after a couple of nice attacks from each of them, and neither of them even scored a two-count!
Shannan Lerch: Just you wait, Zach. One of these two will get big points from this.
Corey gets to his feet again, and grabs hold of Fly. He pulls him to his feet, and Fly catches him off guard with a kick to the gut. Black retaliates with one of his own, and lifts him up for a suplex, but instead stalls it, and drops him parallel to the mat across the ropes. The crowd pops as Black pulls Fly out a bit further until his legs are hanging on the top rope, his body parallel to the mat, but Fly reverses it, shoving off the ropes with one foot and floating over Black’s head into what would resemble a suplex by Black, but Fly finishes with a neckbreaker and Black grabs at his neck in pain.
Zach Davis: What a reversal by Jonny Fly!
Shannan Lerch: And Corey Black is reeling after the Life to the Lifeless failed to hit.
Fly gets to his feet and looks over at his corner, seeing both his teammates’ hands outstretched. He goes for it, and tags in Chris Avery.
Zach Davis: And Fly getting out of there to avoid injury just a week before the Pay-Per-View, and here comes Chris Avery!
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, cause now it’s Corey Black vs the ignorant black.
Zach Davis: Shannan, seriously. Just... Just stop. He’s not even really black!
Shannan Lerch: That’s not what Chris Avery says!
Avery steps into the ring and grabs Black by the leg. He flips Black onto his back and locks in an ankle lock of sorts
Zach Davis: I thought you didn’t care what he said because he was black!
Shannan Lerch: Aha! So you admit it! He IS black!
Zach Davis: I... HATE... YOU...
Shannan Lerch: I know you do. Love you too, Zacky-kins!
Black grabs the rope right away, and Avery lets go of the hold. Black gets back to his feet, and tags the hand of Donald Deruty.
Zach Davis: And Corey Black making the same decision to save it for Timebomb!
Shannan Lerch: He’s no idiot, Zach. Not like Chr-
Zach Davis: I know what you’re going to say, so just stop!
Shannan Lerch: Fine.... Chris Avery sucks!
Deruty steps between the ropes and grabs hold of Chris Avery, and the two lock up collar and elbow. Avery gets the upper hand with a kick to the gut, and wraps his neck around Deruty in a half nelson
Zach Davis: Chris Avery locking in a sleeper on The American Hero, and Deruty seems to be fading.
Shannan Lerch: One has to wonder what is going on here; this is uncharacteristic of Chris Avery.
Zach Davis: Chris Avery just planted Deruty with a half nelson facebuster.
Shannan Lerch: That’s more like the guy that’s usually around here.
Avery pins Deruty.
Avert gets back to his feet, and grabs Deruty by the leg. He drags Deruty toward his corner, and tags in Mr. FPV, the new US Champ. FPV grabs Deruty and pulls him to his feet, and whips him into the ropes. On the rebound, the two both go for a clothesline and both hit the mat. Almost in sequence with the bodies hitting the mat, the lights in the arena go out. On the Jumbotron, words appear in bright, glowing white letters.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!?!
The words disappear as the lights turn back on, and Roy Speede is standing in the ring between Deruty and FPV, both of whom are on their feet. A shocked look crosses both of their faces, and Roy turns to face Deruty. He steps up, and Deruty holds his ground, and Roy Speede holds up a fist in the air.
Zach Davis: What’s this? Roy Speede is interrupting the match!
Shannan Lerch: And it looks like he’s got it out for Donald Deruty!
Roy swings his fist, and drops his target... by spinning and knocking out Mr. FPV!!
Zach Davis: What? Speede just took down his own partner!
Shannan Lerch: Former partner, Zach. He was removed from the tag titles match, and FPV announced he has a replacement.
Deruty grabs Speede to stop him, but Speede elbows Deruty in the side of the head and grabs FPV, whipping him into the ropes. Speede goes running but Deruty trips Speede, and FPV rolls out of the ring. Speede gets to his feet and leaps over the top rope, hitting FPV with a suicide dive. Fly steps into the ring in FPV’s place, and rolls up Deruty, who is looking on to the outside.
Deruty powers out at the last second, and as Speede pulls FPV to his feet outside the ring, FPV catches him off-guard, and whips him into the guardrail. Deruty gets to his feet, and Fly catches him with a dropkick that sends him staggering backward. Deruty inadvertently tags Switches the Clown. He springboards into the ring as Fly tags in Chris Avery.
Zach Davis: Here comes Chris Avery; he and Switches squaring off. Seth thinks that Dr. Heill imprinted Logan with Chris Avery's mind. So bizarre.
Outside the ring, FPV grabs Speede and throws him up the ramp-No! Speede reverses it and throws FPV into the guardrail. He grabs FPV and smashes him face-first into the ramp.
Zach Davis: I can’t even follow what’s going on now. FPV is fighting Speede, and Switches is fighting Avery, and... What?
Shannan Lerch: I think Speede’s out for revenge against Mr. FPV for replacing him!
Speede grabs FPV and pulls him to his feet, and FPV kicks Speede in the groin. Speede falls to his knees in pain as Switches and Avery are brawling. FPV whips Speede into the side of the stage, and Speede turns it around and throws FPV to the ground at the entrance to the stage, and he rolls backstage. Speede follows him, and throws a punch to the downed FPV as Switches hits Avery with an Ace Cutter! As Avery stumbles up Switches then hits the Gigglebox!
Zach Davis: This could be it!
Switches pins Avery.
Shannan Lerch: The People's Champion picks up the victory for his team!
Switches stands up and gets his arm raised but Avery grabs the People's Title from ringside, and runs at Switches and hits him with it! Avery yells that he never gets Title shots just because he's black.
Zach Davis: Huh.
Meanwhile, Fly has taken his Television Title and left the ring. Black has his World Title and he climbs up one turnbuckle, nearest Fly, looking down at him. Fly yells up from the ramp.
Shannan Lerch: One week from now, those two meet in a match for the WCF Title. I can't wait.
Zach Davis: Fly has lost another tag match and Corey was victorious... will Fly versus Black bring out the best in Corey in this big match situation? Or will Fly get his revenge and win the World Title?
Shannan Lerch: We'll see!
Slam fades to black.
