Drunk and Crazy by Mogwai plays as the Slam logo appears on screen and the show is on the air! We go to Zach and Shannan.
Zach Davis: Shannan, fans, welcome to the show! Great to have you here tonight, we've got yet another stacked show.
Shannan Lerch: Fans have been waiting for tonight's main event for quite a while - the Ladykillerz are getting a Tag Team Titles shot!
Zach Davis: Indeed. We know that next week Jay Price goes one on one with Switches the Clown for the People's Title, but tonight he teams with that same.. body ... to fight for the Tag Team Titles.
Shannan Lerch: FPV is on a roll lately, and Brad Kane is a legend. These men aren't strangers to one another, that's for sure; this is going to be a hell of a match.
Zach Davis: In one of the most bizarre matches in history, in my opinion, four wrestlers that have been here for a few short weeks will compete... for WORLD TITLE CONTENDERSHIP for a PPV MATCH. I don't believe it.
Shannan Lerch: Jonny Fly didn't just break the glass ceiling, he tore the whole god damn glass house down. Sarah Twilight, Famine of the Vile, Bryan Worthy, and Lyger all compete to see who is going to face Fly in the World Title match at Explosion. This is mind boggling.
Zach Davis: Quite frankly, Jonny Fly is a lucky man. Gravedigger and Oblivion, FPV and Speede, Nathan von Liebert... they're all men deserving of World Title matches, but they're tied up in their own feuds and whatnot. So one newcomer is going to get the chance of a lifetime.
Shannan Lerch: Speaking of NvL, the TV Title Tournament semifinals are tonight. We've got NvL versus Kendrik Masters, and Steeltoe Joe vs Kira Sakazaki. Two of these men will move onto Explosion to fight for the belt Fly vacated.
Zach Davis: Roy Speede returns to the ring, teaming with Kaylyn James Evans, of course, to take on the Milusha team of Nic Daniels and Eric Price. We'll see if Speede is all healed up or what.
Shannan Lerch: Doc Henry is in competition, one week away from one of the biggest matches of his life... a Hell in a Cell match against Johnny Reb... and tonight he's up against Zombie McMorris.
Zach Davis: Zombie McMorris is a force to be reckoned with, I don't envy either of these men.
Shannan Lerch: We have a match to determine who will face Odin Balfore at Explosion in Odin's first match in WCF since losing to Corey Black. Ayria Adams, Tek, Don DeBeers, Xavier Laroux, and Gina Caldwell all get the chance to face the big man.
Zach Davis: Alexis Moore, Bo Stoned, and Tim Vegas go at it in a triple threat!
Shannan Lerch: And in our opener, four newcomers are in action. Benjamin Atreyu, Kris Slade, Kid Phantasm, and Jayway. This should be quite the exhibition match.
Zach Davis: Let's get to the show!
Shannan Lerch: Our first bout will be featuring four new up and comers.
Zach Davis: Alright, with everything said and done... LET'S GET THIS OPENING MATCH STARTED!!
"Ecstasy of Gold" by Ennio Morricone plays on the sound system. The intricate melodies sweeping over the arena. Benjamin Atreyu pushes pass the curtains, stepping out onto the entrance ramp, greeted by the jeers and boos from the crowd. Benjamin Atreyu, unphased by the crowds negative reaction, makes his way to the ring.
He takes his time making his way up the steps as he looks out into the crowd. Atreyu's contempt for them, is plain as day on his face. He slips in between the top and middle rope.
He walks to the center of the ring, raising his fist in the air, as if announcing his victory was assured before the match even began. As the crowd erupts in boos he steps back into his corner.
Zach Davis: That Benjamin Atreyu is a cocky mutha-...
Shannan Lerch: Shut your mouth, Zach Davis!
The lights go out as "In League" begins to blare over the loudspeakers.
Zach Davis: Here comes "The Insane Icon" Kris Slade
A red spot light hits in the middle of the stage at the :54 mark Shannon Slade walks out with a smile on her face. At 1:13 mark Kris Slade slowly walks out from the curtain with an evil smile on his face. Shannon and Kris slowly walk down the ramp as the song plays. At the 2:21 mark Shannon is on the apron opening the ropes for Kris and Kris falls to his knees screaming at the 2:30 mark. Kris removes his jacket and dog chain as the song plays through.
"Clock" by Beck begins playing over the loudspeakers as the curtain parts... and out comes Kid Phantasm. He slaps a few audience members' hands on his way through the arena, then slides beneath the bottom rope and into the ring. Kid Phantasm takes a quick look around the crowd... and then stares down at Atreyu and Slade, as he waits patiently for Jayway.
Shannan Lerch: That's three out of the four. Now, all we are waiting on is Jayway.
Holla 2 the world by MVP begins to play.
Zach Davis: Speaking of Jayway.....
The lights turn gold and there Jayway appears on stage in his wrestling gear. As he walks to the ring, he shows the sign for money and when he does, gold color confetti falls from the rafters. When he gets in the middle of the ring, pyro, from above, goes off.
Shannan Lerch: with the sound of the bell, THIS match is underway.
All four men circle the ring. Jayway and Atreyu lock up. Kris Slade charges at Kid Phantasm...

Zach Davis: Atreyu has the ropes.
Stanley Moser: Alright Jayway, relinquish the hold. NOW ONE!! TWO!! THREE!!

Kris Slade picks up Jayway....
Shannan Lerch: Slade just took Jayway "Straight to hell and back"!!
Kris Slade nails Jayway with a Crossed Arm German suplex. As Jayway stumbles up, Slade thumps Jayway with forearm to the back, of the head. Slade sets up Jayway in a powerbomb....
As Slade has Jayways arms crossed, The Insane Icon picks up his opponent. Jayway has a look of fear right as he is picked up and right before....
Zach Davis: TOTAL EXPRESS!!
Shannan Lerch: That was picture perfect straightjacket power bomb!!
As Kris Slade and Jayway are IN the ring, Benjamin Atreyu and Kid Phantasm are at ringside.

Zach Davis: OH-H-H-H MY-Y-Y-Y GOO-O-O-DD-D-D!!
That got the crowd onto their feet!! The way Ben Atreyu comically crashed into the turnbuckles, got the crowd into a frenzy!!
Crowd: THAT WAS AWESOME!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap> THAT WAS AWESOME!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap> THAT WAS AWESOME!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap>
Kris Slade charges at Jayway, but Jayway...
Shannan Lerch: Dropkick on Kris Slade!!!
Jayway saw Slade charging at him and nailed a dropkick. Jayway stands up and walks towards a fallen Benjamin Atreyu.
Zach Davis: Looks like Jayway is walking over to Ben Atreyu and maybe go for the pin!!
As Jayway walks away and Kris Slade is still lying motionless, on the mat....
Kid Phantasm hits a senton splash on a prone Kris Slade.
Shannan Lerch: Where in the Hell did Kid Phantasm come from?!?

Jayway doesn't realize Atreyu's intention, and kicks him away-
Zach Davis: Kid Phantasm picks up the win!
Jayway turns around, surprised, not realizing there was a pin attempt going on behind him. Atreyu rolls out of the ring, apparently pissed at Jayway's mistake. Kid Phantasm stands up, triumphant, getting his hand raised in the air.
Shannan Lerch: Your first match often times sets the tone for the rest of your WCF career... and Kid Phantasm just started his in a major way!
Atreyu leaves the arena angrily, and Jayway leaves as well as Slade holds his head in pain and Phantasm celebrates.
“Hit Em Up” by Lil Wayne starts playing on the arena speakers and the crowd immediately starts booing as members of MS-13 start walking out from the back. Dobbie, Adrian, Gravedigger and then two large Hispanic men behind him.
Shannan Lerch: The group looks a little different without Gravedigger’s brother Chester with them. For those that missed it last week, Oblivion took Chester out near the beginning of the show.
Gravedigger has a furious look on his face as he leads MS-13 down the ramp to the ring.
Zach Davis: Yes and we’ve been told that Chester is still in a coma a week later and they’re not sure when he’ll wake up. You said the group looks a little different without Chester, but those two muscled freaks with them have more than made up for Chester’s size in the group.
MS-13 climbs into the ring and Gravedigger walks over to the other side of the ring where he’s immediately handed a mic. He turns and lifts the mic up.
Gravedigger: I’m out here for one reason and one reason only: Oblivion.
The crowd pops at his name. Gravedigger’s face turns into a look of annoyance as he glances sideways at the crowd.
Gravedigger: You go ahead and cheer that freak of a monster. A man who would hospitalize and put another person into a coma.
Zach Davis: Oh come on, like Gravedigger doesn’t have a list of atrocities he’s committed during his career, what a hypocrite.
Gravedigger: Oblivion, you crossed a line. Like Diagur said last week after Slam, you didn’t just attack my brother. You attacked MS-13 itself. I don’t think you really understand what you’ve done here. What’s going to happen is that you’re not just going to simply show up tonight or at Explosion and we have a match like we did last month. No, you’ve basically declared war on a violent, deadly street gang who has kept out of WCF’s business for the most part.
No, see when you show up tonight or at Explosion, you’re going to die Oblivion. You’re going to be either killed on the spot or left for dead and left in worse shape than you left my brother. You want a rematch with me so bad that you take out my brother. You’re going to get your rematch. You’re going to get what you want this time.
Our match this time is going to be different. This time around, we’re not going to be in just a hardcore match for my hardcore title. We’re going to be in a STRETCHER match. See, you want to jump my brother and brutalize him the way you did, have him put on a stretcher and in the back of an ambulance, then I’m going to give you the same chance to do that to me. The thing is, unlike our previous title matches where it was just you versus me…this time around that’s changed.
See these men with me? Adrian…Dobbie…and the two Hispanic men accompanying me? You’re not facing me for the hardcore title. The hardcore title match will be Oblivion versus the entirety of Mara Salvatrucha. You may have to take on just these four men and myself or maybe Diagur will get involved and bring even more men. Remember how difficult it was for you to win against me alone? Now, you’re going to have to deal with all of us.
"Oblivion" by Mastadon blares throughout The WCF Arena. Immediately, the crowd leaps out from their seats and begin to rattle The Arena with thunderous screams and cheers.
Zach Davis: You didn't think Oblivion was gonna allow Gravedigger continue talking trash about IT did you?
Shannan Lerch: You knew, Zach Davis. YOU knew. You knew any second, Oblivion was coming out here to confront Gravedigger.
Zach Davis: This rivalry IS personal.
Shannan Lerch: Yes. Very personal. This rivalry has been going on for months and I see NO proof, that it's gonna end soon.
Music continues to play. No Oblivion.
Nothing. Gravedigger smirks.
Gravedigger: I should have known you would be too much of a coward to come out here and face me.
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion would be crazy to confront MS-13 as a group.
But, with no signs of Oblivion, the crowd quiets down. Then the large screen slowly shows the backstage area. The camera pans towards Oblivion and a tied up and gagged JJ. The crowd cheers loudly. Oblivion appears on screen, with a tied up JJ, screaming through a gag. Each time Oblivion gets a lil closer toward JJ, she tries to wiggle through the coarse thick rope and a large metal chain. JJ is tied and gagged on a metal chair. She is obviously frightened. Oblivion kneels down. Oblivion is currently wearing a half mask, only covering the right side, of the face of Stephan Johnson. The exposed side, of IT's face is of a handsome Stephan Johnson. Oblivion does kneel down a faces at JJ, you is very disturbed with Oblivion. She is completely freaked out. Oblivion gets in real close...
Shannan Lerch: What's Oblivion doing?
Oblivion's head gets real close to JJ's face and....
Oblivion licks the left side, of JJ's face. Crowd roars with disgust and entertainment. JJ cringes. Oblivion begins to stroke her hair. With look on JJ's face, you can tell she is feeling uncomfortable and intimidated.
Zach Davis: JJ is obviously does not like being around Oblivion.
Oblivion grabs a handful of JJ's hair and slightly tugs on her hair. JJ winces. Oblivion begins to speak to JJ, directly right in her left ear.
Oblivion: You look great. You smell even better.
There is an aura of uncomfortably. Gravedigger is livid in the ring right now.
Shannan Lerch: First, it was Chester. Now, it's JJ. Oblivion has now made it VERY personal.
Zach Davis: It was Gravedigger, who was the one who bought the mental institution, where Stephan Johnson, the body that Oblivion inhabits, was released from.
Shannan Lerch: He should of stayed on his meds. Now, Oblivion is raging madman who doesn't take in consideration of anyone else. Gravedigger, now wants to send Oblivion back to the mental facility away forever!!
Oblivion: You know what? While you’re quivering, think of this. IT could, Oblivion could any second, any second maul you. But, IT would rather make you squirm and cry. Right now, Gravedigger is probably hopping around the ring, just all kinds of pissed off. Well.... THAT'S TOO DAMN BAD!!
Crowd begins to chant...
Crowd: THAT'S TOO BAA-AD!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap> THAT'S TOO BAA-AD!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap> THAT'S TOO BAA-AD!! <clap-clap> <clap-clap-clap>
Oblivion: Oblivion wants you to go and tell Gravedigger, that his days are numbered. There will be a day when Gravedigger will gets his ass kicked. Bloodied. Disfigured.
JJ begins to cry.
Zach Davis: Now, Oblivion has made JJ cry.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe, Oblivion has gone too far.
Oblivion tugs a lill harder on JJ's hair, as he looks into the camera.
Oblivion: GRAVEDIGGER!! COME OUT AND PLAY-AY!!
Oblivion licks the face of JJ. She screams out, through the gag.
Oblivion: Gravedigger!! You're a piece of shit!! You'll always BE a piece of shit!! Now, Oblivion is inside your head. There's not a damn thing you can do about it!!
Oblivion approaches to lick JJ's face, but turns IT's head and nibbles on her left ear.
Gravedigger has seen enough and jumps out of the ring and runs up the ramp, quickly followed by the rest of MS-13.
Shannan Lerch: Gravedigger and MS-13 are on their way to the back to find Oblivion and JJ. This is not going to end well.
"Ain't No Rest For The Wicked" by Cage the Elephant hits as pyro begins flowing out of the stage. Alexis Moore steps out as the fans reaction is a mixed one. She makes her way slowly down the ramp as she hops up on the apron. She blows a kiss as she slides in slowly. Making it to her feet, she walks over to each corner blowing kisses.
"420" by Kottonmouth Kings starts playing and green lights fly around the arena as Bo Stoned steps out from the gorilla position in his trademark muscle shirt and jean shorts with black biker boots and a pair of cheap black shades. He pulls a joint out of his pocket and lights it up and then he pulls a Miller Lite out of his pocket and pops it open chugging it on the way to the ring. Bo throws the empty can into the crowd and slides into the ring.
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.
Zach Davis: And here we go!
The bell sounds. Bo Stoned goes on the attack right out of the gate, running at Moore and Clotheslining her down before beginning to stomp on her mercilessly. Vegas grabs him and spins him around, but Stoned kicks him in the gut and follows up with a Bulldog!
Shannan Lerch: One great thing about WCF is the total lack of sexism in the wrestling matches. Stoned just attacked a woman viciously and its okay!
Bo kicks Moore a few more times before picking her up and throwing her into the corner. He then picks Vegas up as well and throws him into Moore! Moore falls down and Vegas stumbles out of the corner, Stoned grabs him and hits a Spinebuster!
Zach Davis: Great move there.
Stoned picks up Vegas and throws him out of the ring. He then grabs Moore, who has stumbled to her feet, and hits a Death Valley Driver!
Shannan Lerch: Bo Stoned is High as a Kite!
Bo then jumps to the top and hits a Moonsault Splash onto her!
Zach Davis: Doobie Time!
This results in a pin.
Shannan Lerch: Bo Stoned wins in a completely dominant debut!
Zach Davis: Guess what, Shannan!
Shannan Lerch: I dunno, something about the next match?
Zach Davis: Yes! We’ve got the huge 5 contestant brawl coming up next! You’re some kind of psychic, I’d bet!
Shannan Lerch: Winner takes on Odin Balfore at Explosion!
Zach Davis: You know everything about this! You have shattered my grip on reality!
Shannan Lerch: First up –Ayria Adams!
The vocals of Ayria Adams's No Duh serenade over the P.A. system as The Awesomness herself makes her way out from behind the curtains. The moment she emerges, the crowd erupts in rage induced fury, throwing their perishables in her general direction. Security tries extra hard to hold back the crowd as some brave souls lean over the railing to give Ayria an earful. Adams spreads her arms spread eagle-like with a facial expression that oozes confidence and awesomeness as she says to the camera, "They love me, they really really love me."
Gingerly making her way down to the ring with her Alaskan swag, she takes time to talk trash with some of the occupants in the front row. A select few loyal fans pay credence to Ayria's Awesomness, but she ignores them all the same. As usual someone reaches out to touch her but she evades their glancing touch and stares them down before continuing her trot to the squared circle. Upon arrival she slides into the ring, prances around in her best Muhammad Ali impression before spinning around three times with her arms out stretched before dropping down to one knee and flexing.
The people detested her, the little kids booed at the to top of their tiny lungs. Adults threw up their middle fingers as the juvenile ones simply gave her a thumbs down.
As the music died down Ayria jumps up on the turnbuckles to face the crowd, taunting them to elevate their hate.
Zach Davis: Boy! -do they hate this lady! Muhammad Ali moves and all!
Shannan Lerch: Boo! Cassius CLAY! Booo! Hiss! CASSIUS CLAY!
Zach Davis: That’s borderline offensive, but I’ll allow it! Who’s up next!?
The lights in the arena are dimmed as It's Time for War by LLCOOLJ begins playing on the JumboTron with video of The Dangerous One in action. Suddenly flares begin going off along the ramp and the crowd roars as Angel Fyre steps from behind the curtain. She turns and points to the curtan and the crowd goes wild when they open, And the The Dangerous One Don DeBeers makes his way out of the back and shakes hands with the fans as he works toward the ring. He jumps onto the apron and holds the ropes while Angel Fyre climbs into the ring before releasing them and stepping over the ropes himself. He jumps on each cornerpost and acknowledges the fans as confetti shoots out of them.
Zach Davis: DeBeers is clearly a fan favorite around here! Look at that confetti! Fancy!
Shannan Lerch: He could rise to the top quickly if here were to pull out a win tonight! Next stop, Odin Balfore!
The lights Dim and More Human Than Human By White Zombie Hits and The lights start moving through the crowd Flashing Red and Green Gina Caldwell then Walks Out With Her Hands in the Air Looking really full of herself she then Chuckles at the Boos and Walks down into the ring and Slides in and Gets on the top Rope and Yells at the fans as she raises her arms
Zach Davis: Looks like Gina has her game face on tonight. -Totally focused on the match at hand.
Shannan Lerch: Yep, Caldwell clearly has done her homework. Look at how she’s intimidating her opponents. Cold steel, Zachy!
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.
Zach Davis: Here comes Tek! –Always a force to be reckoned with inside that squared circle!
Shannan Lerch: This crowd his getting’ nuts in here! They’re really fired up for Tek!
I'm a cash stealin'...
The massive sea of people would perk up upon hearing that set of lyrics. Black velvet curtaisn swaying ever so slightly as Theory of a Deadman's Lowlife began to pulsate through the WCF Public Announce System. The aforementioned curtains thrown open would give way to the arrival of none other than Xavier Laroux!
'Cause I'm a low life and I'm lovin' it!
Nodding his head to the music, Laroux would extend the both of his arms outwards, seemingly presenting himself to the rather negative reaction he was receiving on this night. That oh so cocky smirk growing upon the handsome features of young Laroux. He would shrug his shoulders as he began the long descent down the ramp.
Not particularly paying any mind to the reaction he was given, opting to use it as motivation for the task in front of him tonight. Finishing up the descent, Laroux would climb up onto the apron, ducking down between the upper and middle sets of ropes. Emerging into the ring, Laroux did a few turns, looking out at the massive sea of people.
Reaching down as he reached the middle of the ring, Laroux would grasp hold of that tank top, pulling it up and over his head before pitching it out to ringside. Backing up into the lower left corner, laroux clutched the top set of ropes before throwing his right knee forward, rapidly, stretching out the denim material of his jeans, readying himself.
Zach Davis: Laroux has found his way to the ring and it looks like this thing is about to get underway!
Each fighter has claimed a corner post, except Tek, who has chosen the center logo.
Ayria leads with by doling out a Heart Punch and Yakuza kick combo into Tek. Tek is spun but regains his footing before taking a fall.
Zach Davis: Tek just dodged a huge haymaker from Caldwell!
Tek whips a 360 degree spin-kick into both Caldwell and Ayria’s jaw! Laroux lunges at Tek, spiking a Maelstrom style knee strike directly into the back of Tek’s head. Tek stumbles forward into Don Debeers’ huge DeathSpear!
Zach Davis: Oh, man, no! That was devastating! Tek did not need that to happen so early!
Laroux spins Debeers around and socks him with a stiff combination of lefts and rights. Debeers manages to block several in a row, but is taken down when Laroux lands a punch onto Debeers’ windpipe. Caldwell lands a knee to Ayria’s chest, but Ayria counters with a snap Dragon Screw Legwhip! Ayria pops back to her feet, just in time to be wiped out by Laroux’s running baseball slide. Laroux snaps Ayria back to her feet and tries to hit a Reverse Firemans Carry slam, but Aryia reverses it into a spike pile driver!
Zach Davis: Aryia makes the pin!
Caldwell stomps down onto the side of Aryia’s head! -Effectively breaking the pin!! Debeers off the top rope!
Zach Davis: Debeers outta nowhere! -With a corkscrew flying DeathSpear on –no! Calwell reversed it into a backbreaker! OH MY GOD!
Ayria plants several vicious elbows into Laroux’s talkbox, before going for another pin!
Laroux Kicks out!
Ayria rolls off and onto her feet. Laroux pulls himself upright. Ayria spins, catapulting herself into a blazing back elbow against Laroux’s forehead. Ayria watches Laroux fall to the mat.
Zach Davis: Tek is back! He’s back!
Tek has ascended the top rope and launches himself into a spectacular Sky-Twister-
Shannan Lerch: Facekick! Ayria just got the hell kicked out of her face!
Debeers and Tek stand at opposite ends of the ring. Debeers waves Tek over. Tek pops his knuckles and makes his way across the ring.
Zach Davis: Debeers and Tek are exploding on each other! A flurry of mind bending strikes!
Debeers lands 3 unanswered uppercuts to Tek! Tek is about to go out! Debeers lifts Tek for a swinging neckbreaker, but Tek reverses it! Tek snaps down a devastating Ace Crusher!
Zach Davis: TLT! Tek makes the pin!
Tw- Caldwell breaks up the pin!
Caldwell lifts Tek and and blasts him with a Flowing DDT!
Shannan Lerch: The BombShell! OMG!
No time for a pin, though Laroux and Ayria are both back up! Caldwell rolls out of the ring, waving off her competitors with a couple middle fingers.
Laroux snaps a spinkick against the back of Ayria’s neck, before whipping her against the ropes. Ayria handsprings herself up to the middle of the top rope and launches herself outside, directly into Caldwell.
Zach Davis: Ayria locked a stunner onto Caldwell on her way down! I can’t believe it! A stunner with that much momentum stacked onto it! Amazing!
Laroux, still inside the ring, lifts Debeers to his feet. Laroux peppers Don’s jaw with hooks and uppercuts. Don laughs desperately at Laroux and spits blood into his face. Laroux wipes the blood from his lip, before decimating Debeers with a Superkick right between Debeers’ eyes.
Zach Davis: Belam! This could be it! Debeers is down! Laroux makes the pin!
T-Tek breaks the pin!
Zach Davis: Tek refuses to give up! How is he even conscious!?
Tek smashes Laroux with a standing 450 splash, before collapsing to the mat in exhaustion!
Zach Davis: That was a huge last ditch effort by Tek! He gave everything he had in the gas tank!
Ayria is pulling Caldwell into the ring by her hair when Caldwell wrings Ayria’s arm back in an standing arm-wrench. Calwell spikes Ayria’s head against the steel post before shoving her into the ring.
Zach Davis: Look out Caldwell! Tek is up! Somehow!
Tek hammers Caldwell across the jaw with a Tek lifts Caldwell and blasts her down with a Spinning Impaler!
Zach Davis: Street Justice!!! Tek makes the pin!!
Debeers goes to break up the pin! No! Too far!
Thr--!!Laroux just barely breaks up the pin!
Tek muscles himself to his feet, just before Caldwell. Tek lunges at her, attempting to slice her with a spin-kick, but Caldwell hastily blocks it. She whips him around and dessimates him with an expertly executed Tiger Driver!
Zach Davis: Bitch Driver! Uh OH! Caldwell makes the pin!
Ayria tries to break up the pin! No! She can’t reach’em!
Thre- Debeers breaks the pin!!
Zach Davis: Oh man! Too close!
Laroux pushes himself to his feet. He squares off with Caldwell. Caldwell fires a kick combination at him, but Laroux dodges and parries with a big-ass drop kick to Caldwell’s chest. Laroux lifts Caldwell and spikes her down with a fierce Falcon Arrow. He goes for the pin!
Debeers breaks the pin!
Ayria is back up! She immediately crushes DeBeers’ with an Inverted Stomp Face-Breaker!
Zach Davis: Egg Scrambler!! OmFG!
Shannan Lerch: Ayria goes for the pin!
Laroux lunges to break up the pin! Not enough!
Thre---Caldwell breaks the pin!
Zach Davis: So close!
Ayria crushes DeBeers’ with an Inverted Stomp FaceBreaker!
Zach Davis: Egg Scrambler!! OmFG!
Shannan Lerch: Ayria goes for the pin!
Laroux lunges to break up the pin! Not enough!
Ayria’s arm is raised in victory!
Zach Davis: Ayria has done it! She faces Balfore at Explosion!
Odin Balfore steps out from the back, clapping sarcastically.
Shannan Lerch: Ayria gets quite the opportunity here. If she beats Odin Balfore in his return to WCF, well... HUGE boost for her career.
Ayria points to Balfore, who continues to clap with a smug smile on his face. Odin leaves as Adams exits the ring and heads to the back.
The cameras cut backstage where Gravedigger and MS-13 are seen walking down a hallway backstage. They open various doors, looking inside of each one. Each door apparently leads to nothing as Gravedigger ends up getting pissed off by the time they get to the end of the hallway. Gravedigger stops and looks up as he sees the door to the Boiler Room. He smirks.
Everyone else sees Gravedigger walk up to the door and they all come up to it as Gravedigger grabs the door knob, turns it and opens it up.
Suddenly Blue Mist Haze sprays out of the doorway and hits everyone in the hallway. Everyone yells out and staggers around. The door was rigged to spray Oblivion's Blue Mist Haze as soon as it was opened. A sign hangs down behind the canisters that reads "BIIIIITCHHEEESSS!!!".
After a minute or so, everyone can start seeing again. Gravedigger angrily pulls the canisters and the sign down and runs into the room. There's no one inside. The cameras cut back to ringside as Gravedigger and MS-13 storm down the hallway once more.
"Never Gonna Stop" by Rob Zombie 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 turnbuckle and pointing to them again and beating his chest in excitement.
Zach Davis: Hot diggity damn this guy is a bundle of energy! I guess it's from all of that coke that he does, or maybe he's just excited about winning Wrestler of the Week and having the chance to follow it up with a win over Doc Henry!
Shannan Lerch: Indeed, Zachly. Zombie Mac scored the pin in last week's main event six-man clusterfuck and he's looking to keep his momentum going. I hope he's coked to the gills because he's got one hell of a fight on his hands against The Doc.
"Sympathy For The Devil" by Guns 'n Roses hits the PA. As the drums hit the house lights fade, and red and blue lights strobe. At "Please allow me to introduce myself", Doc and Mary walk out onto the stage, and look back and forth over the audience. As the crowd boos, they make their way to the ring, where Doc rolls in. Standing, he grins proudly as he pops the crowd drawing more boos. Mocking them, he sits on the turnbuckle and stares down his opponent.
Zach Davis: Last week we learned that Doc would be forced to defend his Confederate Championship against arch-nemesis Johnny Reb at Explosion... in a Hell in a Cell match!
Shannan Lerch: That's going to be pure Armageddon but first Doc has to turn his attention to Zombie McMorris.
Zach Davis: It appears that's Doc is doing exactly that. He and Zombie are staring each other down and talking a world of smack while Doc fondles his wife's goodies.
Shannan Lerch: It sounds like Zombie is promising to tap that ass, but is he talking about Doc's or Mary's?
Zach Davis: With his drugged out state of mind it's impossible to know for sure.
Mary kisses Doc for good luck and then climbs out of the ring, showcasing her assets as she slides through the ropes. Referee Zip Wingdinger licks his lips and then distractedly calls for the bell.
Zombie immediately charges Doc but Doc alertly counters with an elbow to the throat. Doc follows up with a quick knee to the midsection. Doc drags Zombie into the corner and smashes his head into the top turnbuckle no less than fifteen times. Doc spins Zombie into the corner and unloads with heavy punches to the ribs, working over his undead foe in an attempt to wear him down early.
Zach Davis: I have to believe that Doc wants to end this match in as expedient a manner as possible, considering the harrowing task that awaits him in one week against Reb.
Shannan Lerch: There are few matches in wrestling that are as physically and mentally taxing as the Hell in a Cell, so you're probably right about that. If Doc gets out of this match unscathed, and victorious to boot, he'll be in the best possible position to defeat Reb next week.
Zombie spews some orange-yellow bile into the eyes of his opponent that abruptly blinds Doc, and forces him to cease his onslaught. The hideous stench of the bile also causes Doc, Mary, the ref, cameramen and most of the people within the first few rows of the crowd to gag.
Zach Davis: Lucky break for Zombie! It seems as though the punches from Doc caused Zombie to regurgitate that nasty two-dollar steak that he ate for dinner last night, and Doc is the one paying the price for it.
Shannan Lerch: Nasty punt kick from Zombie! That narrowly avoided Doc's gonads but it caught him in the gut and Doc is in pain!
Zombie shakes his dick toward Mary as a manic "ZOM-BIE! ZOM-BIE! ZOM-BIE!" chant breaks out. Zombie wastes little time before awkwardly wresting Doc into the air for an inverted suplex that drops Doc squarely onto his neck. Doc isn't liking the direction that these proceedings are taking and he rolls out of the ring before Zombie can inflict any further punishment.
Zach Davis: Tough times for Doc and it looks like he's just going to take the high road and walk out of this match. He's waving it off.
Shannan Lerch: Wouldn't that be the low road, Zach?
Zach Davis: How is it low? He's conceding defeat by admitting that Zombie is the better man on this night. That's the classy thing to do.
The crowd is booing with all of its might and Zombie himself ain't havin' none of this. He came here to fight. Zombie follows Doc up the ramp, but all of a sudden McMorris is stopped dead in his tracks by the intervention of Doc's gorgeous though obviously distressed wife Mary.
Zach Davis: Mary is pleading with Zombie to just let it be and take the count-out victory! She knows as well as anyone that Doc has that hellacious match with Reb awaiting him right around the corner, and she doesn't want Doc to absorb any unnecessary harm tonight!
Shannan Lerch: But uh-oh! Zombie just grabbed himself two handfuls of Mary's big black booty and these fans are going bonkers!
The "ZOM-BIE!" chants grow to a deafening level as Mary's eyes grow wide; clearly she's stunned by Zombie's unchivalrous antics. Doc looks pissed and he runs at Zombie from behind and takes his knee out with a chop block. The impact of the move flips Zombie before he lands on his head on that unforgiving metal ramp. Doc stomps the everloving crap out of McMorris, then pulls him to his feet and whips him into the steel guardrail that appears at the side of the entrance ramp. Zombie winces as his spine meets the steel. Doc charges at Zombie for a spear attempt, but Zombie lets his body go limp like linguini and rolls out of the way. Doc rams the guardrail at full speed and instantly drops to the ground in a heap.
Zach Davis: Wild action outside of the ring! Referee Zip Wingdinger is trying to restore order, albeit with little success!
Shannan Lerch: Zombie set off a firestorm when he put his hands on Mary. Doc is into the whole menage scenario, mind you, but only the kind that includes multiple chicas.
Zombie pulls his and Doc's crumpled forms down the ramp toward the edge of the ring and then repeatedly slams Doc's head onto the edge of the ring. Zombie Irish whips Doc into the ring post then snorts out a big ball of brown snot. Zombie charges at Doc, hitting a stiff big boot that throttles the Confederate Champion and further pops the already riled crowd. Zombie finally rolls Doc into the ring and makes the pin attempt without any further adieu.
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
NO!!! KICK OUT!!!
Zach Davis: Doc wanted to take the easy, and in my view, honorable way out of this match but Zombie McMorris wasn't having it.
Shannan Lerch: So much for getting out of here unscathed. Zombie is having himself a boot party on Doc's skull!
Zach Davis: McMorris might have an Irish sounding name but he's clearly got some Italiano in his bloodline. Either that or he's doing his best Joe Pesci impression from Goodfellas.
Mary climbs onto the ring apron and shakes her tits at McMorris. Zombie instantly ceases his attack and becomes mesmerized by her heaving and succulent brown orbs. The ref is also feeling some action stirring in his pee pee so he's blissfully unaware when Doc hits Zombie with a painfully precise and downright vindictive low blow. McMorris is dropped to his knees and Doc quickly ambles to his feet. Doc climbs onto the ropes and flies off with a diving spear.
Zach Davis: Confederate Rocket! The distraction from Mary opened the door for Doc and he makes the cover now!
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
TH--NO!!! KICK OUT!!!
Doc shoots himself off the ropes as Zombie is getting up and hits another powerful spear, this time knocking Zombie through the ropes. Zombie takes a spill on the floor and Mary instantly puts in the boots, so to speak, with those pointy stiletto heels of hers.
Zach Davis: Mary is getting her revenge after the ass-grabbing antics by Zombie McMorris earlier in this match! You go, girl!
Shannan Lerch: Doc certainly looks like he's getting a chuckle out of it as he distracts the ref.
After about fifty of the quick stomps Mary finally relents and Doc climbs out of the ring. Doc pulls McMorris up by his filthy, matted hair and we can plainly see the litany of bright red marks on Zombie's face and torso where Mary's heels left their impression. Doc rams Zombie head-first into the steel ring steps and then drives his boot into the back of Zombie's head. Doc flashes a cruel grin as he steps on Zombie's head with the full brunt of his two-hundred and thirty-five pound frame. The fans are booing their lungs out as Doc cackles gleefully.
Zach Davis: Zombie McMorris might have brain damage after the punishment that he's taken in this match! I mean... you know, more than he already had before the match.
Shannan Lerch: If he's a Zombie then can't he just eat someone else's brain to replenish his own?
Zach and Shannan shift in their seats with worried looks on their faces, clearly not wanting to become Zombie's next victims. Meanwhile, Doc has finally stepped off of Zombie's head and onto the adjacent ring steps. Doc jumps off the steps and drives both of his boots into the back of Zombie's head as the crowd gasps in horror. Doc takes a moment to admire his brutal, bloody handiwork before rolling Zombie's limp carcass into the ring and making the cover.
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
THRE--NO!!! FOOT ON THE ROPE!!!
The crowd erupts with cheers as Doc barks at the referee, accusing him of being a "damned Yankee infidel!" Zip gets in Doc's face, trying to assert his authority, but Doc pie-faces him to the mat.
Zach Davis: Doc's getting frisky with the ref, but Zip can't really do anything about it because Doc has that diplomatic immunity clause in his contract!
Shannan Lerch: True story. Doc is an ambassador of the Confederate States of America, which means that these Northern refs can't touch him.
Zach Davis: I'm sure that briefcase filled with cash that Doc slipped to your brother had nothing to do with that, right, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: My brother is a shrewd businessman, no doubt!
Doc soccer kicks Zombie in the head followed by quick and angry stomps. Doc pulls the barely unconscious McMorris to his feet and drills him with a DDT. Zombie appears to be out after having his head and neck compressed into the mat. Doc lets out a yell and signals that it's time to go All-In! In the blink of an eye Doc scales the ropes.
Zach Davis: Amazing agility by Doc and it appears that he is mere moments away from ending this match!
Doc takes flight, executing an eye-popping Shooting Star Press as flashbulbs go off throughout the WCF Arena.
Shannan Lerch: Zombie stuck his boot up! He popped Doc right in the face!
Blood gushes from Doc's nose like a faucet as he flounders about on the mat, wondering how the fuck that just happened. Zombie seemingly rises from the dead as he pulls himself to his feet, utilizing the support of the ring ropes. Doc stumbles to his feet and Zombie lashes out with another furious big boot, dropping his Confederate foe with considerable impact. Zombie, having shook the cobwebs loose, appears to be positively fuming. He waits for Doc to get up again and then lifts him with a HUGE press before slamming him to the mat. The Arena shakes with the cheers of delirious fans as Zombie climbs the ropes.
Zach Davis: Zombie's going high risk! What could he have in mind?
Shannan Lerch: Corkscrew senton maybe?
Zombie flies through the air before landing with a flying fist drop straight onto Doc's cock and balls. Even the hardened Zombie McMorris fans in attendance wince at the placement of that blow.
Zach Davis: Dick shot by Zombie but the ref is letting it go! I think he's had enough of Doc's antics in this match, and turnabout is fair play.
Shannan Lerch: Zombie isn't done yet! He's dragging Doc into the corner... and now he's hooking him up in the ropes. Doc's legs are spread eagle!
Zombie rallies his fans and takes his position in the far corner. Without a hint of warning, Zombie charges Doc and unleashes an unfathomably violent kick to Doc's groin. Every man's dick in the Arena instantly goes limp and Mary screams out in horror, her shrieks battling it out with the cheers of the Zombie McMorris fans on the decibel meter.
Zach Davis: Zombie just hit Shattered Dreams on Doc! Good god the impact of that kick was sick! Sick, sick kick!
Shannan Lerch: If Doc and Mary were planning on having kids anytime soon, they might want to consider adoption.
The pained expression on Doc's face says it all as Zombie drags him from the corner and spikes him with a double-arm DDT in the middle of the ring.
Zach Davis: World Tour '69! Zombie hit it! Here's the cover!
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
THREee--NO!!! SHOULDER UP!!!
Zach Davis: Doc got his shoulder up just in the nick of time! Un-bee-lee-vuh-bull!
Shannan Lerch: The man must have titanium testicles. There's no other explanation!
Zach Davis: Maybe he's been dipping into Zombie's coke stash?
Undeterred, Zombie pulls Doc to his feet and locks him in a gutwrench. Zombie goes to lift Doc for a powerbomb, but Doc incredibly flips out of it and lands on his feet. Doc spins McMorris around, kicks him in the nuts as hard as he can and plants him with an ultra stiff Rock Bottom.
Zach Davis: Gambler's Hand!
Doc starts to make the cover on Zombie when the intro to Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" suddenly hits the PA.
Shannan Lerch: That's Johnny Reb's music! What the hell is going on? Is Reb coming out here now?
A look of concern washes over Doc's bruised and bloodied face as he gets to his feet and walks over to the ring ropes, staring at the entranceway for any sign of Johnny Reb.
Zach Davis: Wait! I see a stirring in the crowd! Is that Reb? Oh no, never mind, false alarm. Some dude got punched out for motorboating another dude's girl, that's all.
With no sign of Reb, the music stops playing after a few moments. Doc shoots a glare at the ref, who simply shrugs at him. Doc turns around and eats yet another big boot from Zombie McMorris. In the blink of an eye Doc is scooped up from the mat and gutwrench powerbombed by McMorris.
Zach Davis: Axe Wound! That's gotta do it!
Zombie hooks Doc's leg and casts a defiant sneer to the camera as the ref makes his count.
Zip Wingdinger: ONE...
Zach Davis: Zombie McMorris defeats Doc Henry, with a somewhat unorthodox assist from Johnny Reb!
Shannan Lerch: We're just one week away from seeing Doc defend his Confederate Championship against Johnny in the Hell in a Cell, and the mind games are in full swing!
McMorris celebrates by snorting a few lines of coke off of a groupie's double D titties in the front row while "Never Gonna Stop" plays on the PA.
Meanwhile in Parking Lot... camera showed Kira's S2000 just arrived in WCF Arena Building. then, Kira and Haruna out from their car.
Haruna Sakazaki: nee, Aniki. ganbarimasu yo! (hey, Brother. good luck to you!)
Kira Sakazaki: well, thank you my lovely Torigoya! maybe today i won't fight Alexis Moore and Xavier Laroux at the final, and i will fight Society's Last Member, Steeltoe Joe and if i win, in PPV i will fight either Kendrik Masters and Nathan von Liebert. no matter the wrestler blocking my path, i will fight them with all strenght i have. until once again i win this Television Title and reach the top of Wrestling Industry. i will not lose!
but Haruna seems didn't heard what Kira said.
Kira Sakazaki: Torigoya? aah, you don't listen to me again. is ignoring your brother become your new hobby?
Haruna looking far ahead there is a guy covered with full-face helmet riding a motorcycle speeding towards them.
Haruna Sakazaki: Aniki! Dame!! (Brother! Watch out!!)
Kira Sakazaki: whooooaaa....!!!
Haruna pushed Kira so that the bike hit Haruna. Kira panic and shocked look at Haruna lying unconscious.
Kira Sakazaki: Haruna!!! wake up, Haruna!!! Kisamara (damn you)! please hang on, Haruna i will take you to the infirmary, no! it will be dangerous if i leave her in Infirmary. call Sado! no either, Sado must be on the plane right now. Shimatta, what should i do? okay, i will let her rest in the apartment. but what if i can't make it to my Semifinal match? aah, i don't care if i make it or not. it's for Haruna's sake. i will sacrifice my own match for her. please hang on, Imoto-chan!
Kira carrying Haruna into the backseat of her car. Kira enter the front seat and rushed his car into high speed.
Shannan Lerch: Hey, Sakazaki-san! where are you going. your match is next after this tag team match! i wonder, who would dare to do that "hit-and-run" thing to Haruna?
Zach Davis: I don't know! maybe he is the same guy with that mysterious guy who bothering Kira and Haruna week by week.
Shannan Lerch: the question now is, will Kira arrive on time in his Semifinal Tournament or Steeltoe Joe advanced to the final by forfeit?
Zach Davis: wow, this tension is getting interesting. and anyway, Haruna is cute while she lying unconscious.
Shannan Lerch: oh god, Zach! not now!
We come back from commercial with all four competitors still in the ring.
Zach Davis: Here we go!
Speede and Price start the match. Speede hits Price with several forearms to his head, then hits a Dropkick to his back!
Shannan Lerch: I got drunk one time and thought Eric Price and Jay Price were brothers, and so I was horny for Eric Price, but now I'm not.
Zach Davis: ... what?
Eric stumbles forward and Speede runs at him and hits a Floatover DDT! He pins Price.
Price kicks out. Speede gets up and starts stomping on him. He picks Price up and throws him to the ropes, runs to the ropes and hits a Springboard Lionsault into pin!
No! Another kickout!
Shannan Lerch: Close!
Speede gets up and tags in KJE. Kaylyn comes in and Clotheslines Price down, Price gets up and ducks a Clotheslines, kicks KJE in the gut and hits a huge Olympic Slam!
Zach Davis: Huge move.
Price stumbles away and tags in Daniels. Daniels comes in and as KJE gets up, he hits a Belly to Belly Suplex.
Shannan Lerch: The Milusha is not to be underestimated.
Speede enters the ring and runs at Daniels, but Daniels sidesteps him and hits a Russian Legsweep.
Zach Davis: No one hits a Russian Legsweep like ... Bret Hart ... but Nic Daniels is a close second!
Roy Speede rolls out of the ring. Daniels turns and grabs Kaylyn, and hits her with a Modified Piledriver!
Shannan Lerch: The Verdict!
Shannan Lerch: Nic Daniels pins Kaylyn James Evans.
Zach Davis: I don't believe it! The Milusha wins!
Nic Daniels stands up, triumphant. Speede grabs KJE, pulling her out of the ring. The two head up the ramp, and they may or may not be arguing over the loss.
Shannan Lerch: Trouble in paradise?
Speede and KJE disappear behind the curtain as Price and Daniels celebrate their victory.
The cameras cut backstage again to show Seth Lerch's office door. Gravedigger and MS-13 walk up, some of the Blue Mist Haze still on their faces. Gravedigger bangs on the door really hard. Seth comes out after a second or two.
Seth Lerch: Who the he---
Seth's eyes widened at the way MS-13's faces look.
Seth Lerch: What the he--
Gravedigger holds his hand up to stop him.
Gravedigger: Don't ask. Where's Oblivion?
Seth Lerch: What do you mean? He's not booked tonight.
Gravedigger: Did you see earlier when I was in the ring and he appeared on the big screen with JJ?
Seth Lerch: Yes, but I have no idea where they were. No one has seen him tonight.
A couple of members of security walk up to the group.
Security: Mr. Lerch. We just got a call from the boys in the back of the arena where the wrestlers park that a cab just pulled up. They said it's a woman that looks like JJ.
The security guy gestures to Gravedigger. Gravedigger, Seth Lerch and MS-13 all rush down the hall.
The cameras switch to the parking area as they all come outside. JJ is crying and looks disheveled. Gravedigger runs up to her and hugs her.
JJ: Oh god, finally!
Gravedigger: Where did he have you at? Where is Oblivion?
JJ shakes her head.
JJ: I don't know. I was blindfolded on the way there and on the way back.
Gravedigger turns to Seth with a really pissed off look.
Gravedigger: You better have an ambulance at Explosion or maybe even a hearse. Taking out Chester was one thing, but messing with JJ, too. He's gone too far, Seth. I will kill him.
Gravedigger, JJ, and MS-13 push past Seth and walk back into the arena. Seth stands there, gulps, and adjusts his collar. He finally turns and walks back into the arena as the cameras cut back to ringside.
Shannan Lerch: Coming up, we have what is certain to be a classic confrontation. Kira Sakazaki and Steeltoe Joe have been catching eyes and making waves each week with impressive victories throughout the Television Championship Tournament. It culminates tonight in the semi-finals where only one of them can move on.
Zach Davis: And I'll be hard pressed to even begin to try and predict this one. As you've said, both men have been VERY impressive. Each of them looking to cement themselves into the finals. And only one of them is going to make it there. Which one? Your guess is as good as mine!
Shannan Lerch: Let's take it down to Kyle Steel and get this one under way!
Zach Davis: I literally have goosebumps right now! I can't wait!
Kyle Steel: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is a Semi-Finals contest in the WCF Television Championship Tournament! The winner will advance to the finals!
There are a huge amount of cheers from the crowd.
Kyle Steel: Introducing First......currently residing in Stockton, California and weighing in at 272 pounds.....he is STEELTOE JOE!!!!!!
The Arena Goes Dark, and then all simultaneously “Barton Hollow” By The Civil Wars begins to play through the audio systems. The Entrance Gate area and Stage begin to flicker with White lights and neon blue flashes mixed in the flickers. Fog fills the gate area as Steeltoe Joe comes walking out of the midst of the Fog. Joe Stands on stage and plays to the crowds who are cheering for him. Joe then walks down the ramp and gets to the ring steps where he stops, does a Catholic Crucifix motion and then walks up the steps and into the ring. He climbs up two turnbuckles and does the same crucifix motion and raises his arms and points towards Heaven.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent....
Chance! by UVERworld hits....
It’s chance chance chance. Let’s begin.
the song keeps playing but Kira still show himself....
Shannan Lerch: don't tell me, Kira didn't make it....
Zach Davis: yes, what happened to both of them?
Joe looks shocked looking Kira didn't come to the match. Kira's music stopped and Referee start to count Kira...
Kira still can't make it... Joe looks so worried but determined because if Kira didn't come. he will advanced to the final without a fight.
then, Kira comes without the music, and without Haruna.....
Shannan Lerch: yesss.... Kira can make it.... the match continue....
Zach Davis: but something strange..... is he okay?
Kira walk to the ring while holding his head. he looks dizzy. Kira enter the ring and try to refresh himself. ref ask him but he said "i'm okay". then Referee rings the bell...
The referee calls for the bell and the two circle each other. Kira uses his speed to use a running baseball slide right under STJ's legs, he stops, and yanks Joe off his feet by his ankles. He smacks the canvas face first. Joe slowly back to his feet and he looks a bit annoyed. He turns into a standing dropkick which takes him right back down. Back to his feet again and taken over by a snap armdrag takedown.
Shannan Lerch: And the much smaller Kira using his speed to his advantage.
Zach Davis: He's going to have to. Joe will be relying on power and high impact. If he gets hold of Kira it could well be over.
STJ back to his feet again and Kira dashes at him, hopping up for a hurricarrana, but he's caught and Joe turns it into a sit-down powerbomb, staying with him for the pinfall attempt. Referee in position.
Kira gets a shoulder up. STJ wastes no time and grabs a hold of him and pulls him to his feet, now lifting him for The Stronghold!. Looking to end it quickly as he holds the brainbuster suplex to showcase strength before dropping Kira down. Kira is out of it as his head connects with the canvas hard. But he manages to roll near the ropes, still dazed.
Shannan Lerch: Great sense of ring presence by Kira, rolling himself near the ropes to avoid being pinned.
Zach Davis: That is veteran like ring presence. However, Joe turned the tide early with that high impact maneuver and Kira is in trouble now!
Joe drops an elbow down on Kira, followed by another one. He hauls Kira to his feet and whips him into the ropes. Kira comes back, STJ ducks down and Kira over, for a sunset flip, he pulls Joe down and ref with the count.
Joe kicks out after a two count. The two get back to their feet quickly and STJ sends Kira down with a clothesline. He aggressively pulls the smaller man to his feet, but Kira battles back, sending lefts and rights at Joe, backing him off. He attempts an Irish whip to the turnbuckle but it's reversed and Joe sends Kira into the turnbuckle instead. He hops up and leaps off for a diving cross body. Joe side steps it and Kira meets nothing but canvas.
Zach Davis: And a high risk attempt but it doesn't pay off!
Joe pulls a dazed Kira to his feet again, But Kira catches him unexpectedly with an inside cradle. The referee gets into position again.
Shannan Lerch: Close call for Joe there as he was taken off guard!
Zach Davis: Joe should have ended it before when he had the chance.
Both men get back to their feet once more and Kira catches Joe with a back elbow. STJ stumbles back and Kira follows up with a running bulldog. The crowd is getting firmly behind both men as they are eating up the action. Sakazaki measures Joe. The crowd goes wild! Joe slowly gets back to his feet and right into the waiting Kira who NAILS a picture perfect shining wizard that further dazes Joe. Kira taking a few steps back and he rushes in at his foe for a Gakuran Punch But Joe manages to shift his balance and he catches Kira who was in mid air for the jumping punch! He takes Kira up and over his shoulders and locks him into The Steel-Mill!
Shannan Lerch: He's got it locked in! Kira has nowhere to go!
Zach Davis: Kira looked to have things shifted in his favor, but Joe turned the tables at the last moment and now, Kira is trapped!
Kira flails about wildly, trying desperately to get to the ropes, or anywhere out of this hold, but he can't make it. He clenches his eyes shut and grits his teeth as he tries to fight the agonizing pain when Joe cinches the hold tight. After a few long moments, Kira has no choice but to slap Joe's shoulder in defeat.
The bell rings.
Kyle Steel: Here is your winner....in a time of 19 minutes and 49 seconds.....STEELTOE JOE!!!
Shannan Lerch: What a match! Two great competitors battled it out for that coveted spot in the finals. In the end, Steeltoe Joe continues his impressive streak on his way toward Television Championship Gold!
Zach Davis: Indeed, what an impressive night for Joe. However, I would not ever count out Kira Sakazaki. I am sure that he will find himself back in the title hunt in the very near future.
Kyle Steel: The following contest is set for one fall. Introducing first. . .
Orion 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. On the Jumbotron various clips of AoD scenes flash. He makes his way down the ramp to the ring in a slow strut, without Onnica following. He climbs the stairs to the ring apron, steps on the bottom rope, and lifts the middle rope for Onnica to enter, but realizing she isn't with him today, he climbs over the top rope and into 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.
Zach Davis: Kendrik has been on a roll in this tourney, beating a difficult Xavier Laroux.
Shannan Lerch: A big accomplishment by the way Nathan puts it. Kendrik has beaten a dual-champion. Nathan should be no difficulty for Masters.
Zach Davis: Nathan doesn't remember it, but he has beaten good wrestlers in the past. And all he remembers is his last two wins. So really, he's trying to keep his "undefeated" streak going. He'll be no easy task.
Kyle Steel: Standing at 6'10 and billed from Middleville, Michigan. He is Kendrik "The Juggernaut" MASTERS!
The camera pans to the titantron, where an oak door comes into view. A thump is heard, and the door shakes on its hinges. Several more thumps occur, until the blade of an ax busts through the door. Smoke begins to form on the stage, as three dark figures step out. Suddenly a woman voice yells out from the speaker.
"No, go away!
Leave me alone!"
Smoke billows down the aisle as the men walk down it to the ring, their identities shrouded in the smog. Meanwhile, on the titantron, the ax makes a large hole in the wood, and a hand reaches in for the door knob, the fingernails painted black. Again the frightened voice rings out as the mystery man slides into the ring.
"Don't you come in here!
I don't want you here.!"
The mystery man watches the titantron now, as the door opens, and the same man standing in the ring, steps into the house. A lightning bolt cracks behind him, equal in volume to the string of fireworks that fire up on the ramp. The man on the titantron rubs his thumb on the door, leaving a bloody smear on the polished oak. He lifts the ax with both hands, as the voice pleads.
"No, No, No, NO!!
The scream is cut off as the man swings the ax. Blood appears to splatter across the tron, and then the name "Nathan von Liebert" is written with a finger painted black. Nathan, who is in the ring, falls on his knees, never taking his eyes off the 'tron until it goes black. He then scans the members of the crowd that he could without contorting his torso, while his two guards release him from the straight jacket.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent, from the Nightmare Realm. He is "The Devil's Right Hand" Nathan von LIEBERT!
Nathan looks up at Kendrik as he waits for the bell to sound.
DING DING DING
By the third bell, Nathan had already launched himself across the ring, trying for a lariat that just reaches the chest of Kendrik, who doesn't budge. Nathan shoots the rope, and attempts ths again to no avail. And this time Kendrik earns a slap in the face from Liebert.
Zach Davis: That angered the giant.
Indeed it did, as Kendrik kicked Nathan in the stomach, and took him up with a chokeslam. Masters goes for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: Nathan kicks out.
Nathan rolls onto his back, and Kendrik reaches down to pull him up. But Liebert delivers a sharp kick to his head, and takes the big man down with a DDT. Nathan attempts to roll him over, but Kendrik shoves him off, rising to his feet. Liebert shoots the ropes, and comes back with a crossbody. But Kendrik catches him, and shifts Liebert, driving him to the mat with a Jackknife Powerbomb.
Zach Davis: Another hard hit from Masters.
Nathan rolls over to the ropes, and grabs on to prevent a pin attempt Kendrik pulls him to his feet instead, and Nathan rakes his eyes. A kick to the gut follows, with a Texas Piledriver following that.
Shannan Lerch: The giant is down.
Zach Davis: But Nathan is going airbourne instead of scoring the pin.
Indeed Nathan does climb the ropes, flying off with a moonsault. But Kendrik rolls out the way, and Nathan hits canvas.
Shannan Lerch: Did you hear that splat? Someone get a spatula to get Nathan off the canvas.
Zach Davis: Check Kendrik's kitchen drawer. He might have one big enough to pick NvL up.
Kendrik attempts to pick Nathan up, when Nathan hits Masters in the face with a sharp uppercut. Nathan pushes the big man over and locks in a Koji Clutch, putting the big man in pain. And even though he struggles to withstand the pain...
Shannan Lerch: Is this it?
... he soon taps out.
Shannan Lerch: Nathan von Liebert moves on to the finals!
NvL stands up, getting his arm raised.
Zach Davis: Nathan von Liebert faces Milusha member Steeltoe Joe in the finals of the Television Title tournament!
Zach Davis: Well, unfortunately Shannan I think we’re going to be graced with Jonny Fly’s presence during this match.
Shannan Lerch: YES!!
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. Fly slides into the ring and has a microphone tossed to him. The music stops and Fly begins speaking.
Jonny Fly: Did you guys miss me??
Loud boos ring out from the crowd. Fly smiles at the reaction and then continues.
Jonny Fly: In a couple of moments we’re going to see four nobodies compete for a shot at my World Title. That should be a lot of fun. I’m excited. Four newcomers battling it out to see who I have to carry in a PPV Main Event….maybe.
More boos ring out from the notion that Fly may not allow the match to happen.
Jonny Fly: Let’s get this started…
"Ride to California" by Paper Tongues. When the lyrics to his theme starts, Buzz bounds out on stage and encourages the fans to cheer louder. He jogs down towards the ring. Once he reaches the apron, he turns back, drops to one knee and points at the fans on both sides of the ramp, nodding his head to the music. Then he rolls under the ropes and strikes a random body builder's pose.
Jonny Fly: Introducing first…um…Bryan…Buzz…something!
Bryan “Buzz” Worthy stares at Fly, unappreciative of the introduction. Before anything further can happen, "Psychosocial" by Slipknot hits the PA, and the crowd boos as Lyger makes his way to the entrance ramp, followed by Jesmond Joe and Teagan. Lyger grins as he slowly makes his way down the entrance ramp, soaking in the boos. Once inside the ring, Lyger does the Legend Killer pose on all four turnbuckles, and then stops to watch Fly.
Jonny Fly: Introducing next, some..other..guy!
Zach Davis: Fly trying to act like he doesn’t know these guys names. I guarantee you he knows a lot about them. One of these guys he’s going to have to put his World Title on the line against!
“The End of Heartache” by Killswitch Engage begins to play as the lights in the arena begin to strobe. The entrance ramp fills with smoke as Famine makes his way out from the back. He walks forward and stops for a moment before continuing to walk down to the ring as the music continues to play. The crowd boos in unison as the Demon King continues to walk until he gets to the steel steps.He walks up and enters the ring over the top rope. Once inside he looks around at the crowd who is still booing as the music dies down.
Jonny Fly: Next up, that ugly motherfucker!
Famine of the Vile takes a few steps forward as if he’s about to hit Fly..
Jonny Fly: Wait a second now! I think it’s as good of a time as ever to introduce our referee for this match!
The crowd noise dies down…
Jonny Fly: ME! Jonny Fly. The World Champion. The most dominant wrestler in the history of the WCF. The man that all of you insignificant fucks are looking up at. Now play that redheaded skanks music and let’s get this clusterfuck started.
Fly slides out of the ring and walks over to the announcer’s booth as the lights go out as a spotlight centers on stage. Piano chords begin a haunting melody, accompanied by heavy drum beats. The crowd begins to boo MASSIVELY as the video wall displays the words THE ONLY ONE. Pyros shoot up from the stage as our melody finally kicks into guitar. "The Only One" by Evanescence continues to play as Sarah finally walks out onto the stage. She is greeted with deafening boos and soaks them all in, as if she enjoyed the crowd's hatred. She arrogantly swaggers towards the ring and steps inside. Pyros now shoot off from the ring posts and Sarah stands in the center of the ring, posing, almost as if for her own amusement as the crowd's boos become even LOUDER.
Zach Davis: Well, I hate to inform you all, but Jonny Fly is here at the announcer’s table with us. Not sure why he’s not in the ring since he’s the referee for this match.
Jonny Fly: Oh, fuck ‘em Zach. They’ll be fine. I’m picking who wins anyway.
Zach Davis: What??
Jonny Fly: Oh, that’s cute. Hey Shannan, Zach thinks I’m going to call this one down the middle. What an ignorant little fuck, right?
Shannan Lerch: *faints*
The four competitors in the ring look around at each other waiting for the match to begin.
Jonny Fly: START THE MATCH!
The bell is rung and the match begins. Twilight and Worthy lock up on one side of the ring while Famine of the Vile and Lyger lock up on the other. Lyger and Worthy gain the advantage; Lyger with a side headlock and Worthy with a rake to the eye. Lyger uses his power to bring Famine down to a knee before locking in a sleeper hold. Worthy whips Twilight against the ropes and executes a hip toss as she bounces back.
Zach Davis: Quick start here by Lyger and “Buzz” Worthy.
Famine of the Vile elbows his way out of the sleeper hold.
Jonny Fly: What the hell is the point of a sleeper hold this early? Does our writer have no creativity?
Famine gets to his feet and begins exchanging right hands with Lyger. Finally, Lyger gets a better idea and sends a kick to Vile’s ribs and then sends him down to the mat with a neckbreaker. Next to them, Worthy has brought Sarah Twilight back to her feet and has positioned her in the corner. From there Bryan executes a series of shoulder blocks using his weight advantage to punish ‘The Only One.’
Shannan Lerch: Did I just faint again?
Zach Davis: Yes…again…
Bryan “Buzz” Worthy grabs Twilight and attempts to whip her the length of the mat to the opposite turnbuckle, but Twilight blocks it, and instead sends Worthy headfirst into the far turnbuckle. Famine of the Vile is picked up by Lyger who walks him over to the ropes and rests him against them. From there he whips him across the ring and levels him with a clothesline as he bounces back.
Zach Davis: Lot of work being done against the ropes right now.
Shannan Lerch: Yea, you can see all four of these competitors are trying to figure each other out.
Jonny Fly: They all look like they just suck to me, but whatever.
Lyger walks over to the turnbuckle and climbs to the top. As he reaches the top he turns himself around before flying off and attempting to hit Famine of the Vile with a leg drop.
Shannan Lerch: Famine of the Vile moves out of the way!
Zach Davis: Lyger came down and hit all canvas, that had to hurt!
Sarah Twlight has gathered “Buzz” Worthy from the corner and sends him to the mat with a standing dropkick. Before she can get back to her feet, though, Famine of the Vile has walked over and grabbed a handful of her hair. Vile violently scoops her up and sends her back down to the mat with a spinebuster. Famine then hops to the top rope, flies off, and lands an elbow drop to Twilight.
Zach Davis: Famine of the Vile going for the early cover!
Shannan Lerch: Wait, we don’t have a referee…
Zach Davis: Fly, get in the ring!
Jonny Fly: Oh, come on. No chance that cover sticks.
After holding the cover for a few seconds Famine of the Vile releases Twilight and stands up glaring at Fly. From behind him Bryan “Buzz” Worthy has got to his feet and surprises Famine by clubbing him over the back of the head. Worthy directs Vile to the corner and begins attacking his midsection with a series of kicks. Worthy notices Lyger getting to his feet and walks over and helps him up before whipping him into Famine of the Vile. Vile and Lyger both fall to the ground.
Zach Davis: Bryan “Buzz” Worthy is in full control here.
Shannan Lerch: I really like “Buzz.” He’s a unique guy.
Jonny Fly: Should I let him win, Shannan?
Zach Davis: No Fly, you need to let this play out as its supposed to.
Jonny Fly: What the fuck fun is that?
Worthy walks over, picks up Lyger, and dumps him over the top rope. As Worthy turns around he’s surprised by Sarah Twilight hitting him with a baseball slide to the right shin. Worthy drops to a knee and from there Twilight hits him in the back and head with an enziguri. Famine of the Vile gets to his feet and exchanges a long stare with Twilight.
Twilight and Famine of the Vile tie up with Famine of the Vile gaining the advantage with a punch to the chin followed by a german suplex. With Twilight on the ground, Famine of the Vile begins stomping away at her midsection. Famine reaches down and picks up Twilight attempting a two-handed chokeslam, but Twilight is able to wiggle out of the hold and spear Famine of the Vile down to the mat.
Zach Davis: Sarah Twilight gaining the advantage here
Twilight hops over to the ropes and heads to the top of the turnbuckle. As she turns around on the top she notices Bryan “Buzz” Worthy getting to his feet, flies off, and takes him back down to the mat with a missile drop kick. She goes for the quick cover.
Zach Davis: God dammit Fly, are you going to do anything?
Shannan Lerch: Shut up Zach, I don’t want him to leave.
Jonny Fly: I’m sorry guys, was something important happening? I must have dozed off from the boring-ness of the match.
Sarah Twilight gets up from the mat and walks toward the ropes yelling at Fly. From behind her though, Lyger has slid back into the ring and sends a kick to her back causing her to fall to the outside. Lyger turns and approaches Famine of the Vile, helping him back to his feet. Lyger takes him down to the mat with a sidewalk slam.
Jonny Fly: Hey dumbass, good luck getting that three count!
Shannan Lerch: HAHA
Zach Davis: What the fuck Fly, you’re ruining this match!
Jonny Fly: You better watch who you are talking to Zach. I’ve..literally..killed people for less.
Lyger notices quickly that he isn’t going to get a count and slides out of the ring and approaches Fly. Sarah Twilight comes around the ring and does the same. The two begin yelling at Fly to leave the announcer’s table.
Jonny Fly: Fuck you guys; if anyone touches me I’ll have you disqualified!
Lyger and Twilight look at each other. They nod their heads and both reach out to grab Fly when out of nowhere Bryan “Buzz” Worthy comes sailing over the top rope and lands on top of Twilight and Lyger with a suicide dive!
Jonny Fly: Oh fuck, they’re dead! Go for the cover!
Worthy gathers himself and on command hooks the leg of Sarah Twilight. Fly drops his headset and makes the count on the outside.
Zach Davis: What the hell is this? This match isn’t false count anywhere.
Shannan Lerch: Says who, Zach? Fly makes all the rules!
Zach Davis: KICKOUT by Twilight!
Worthy gets back to his feet and brings Lyger up with him. Bryan slides Lyger into the ring where he’s greeted by Famine of the Vile. Vile grabs Lyger and slams him into the corner. He turns to see “Buzz” Worthy running at him, moves out of the way, and with a little shove sends him over the top rope.
Shannan Lerch: Tough going so far for Bryan “Buzz” Worthy.
Zach Davis: You can say that for all of these guys, Shannan. Nobody is able to get anything going.
Jonny Fly: Yeah, they’re all terrible. I agree.
Zach Davis: I didn’t say that, Fly.
Lyger explodes from the corner and tackles Famine of the Vile. Both men get back to their feet but Lyger is too quick, and hits the ‘Stupifier’ on Famine of the Vile.
Shannan Lerch: STUPIFIER! This could be over!
Jonny Fly: BOOM!
Fly leaves the announcers table and slides into the ring just as Lyger hooks the leg for the cover.
Zach Davis: LOOK AT THIS!
From out of nowhere Sarah Twilight hits Lyger with a baseball slide stopping the cover.
Shannan Lerch: Twilight saves the match right there.
Without skipping a beat though, Bryan “Buzz” Worthy has gotten back into the ring and surprises Sarah Twilight by grabbing her, picking her up, and hitting the “Buzz Bomb!” Worthy ends the maneuver with a kneeling pin and Fly begins to make the count.
Famine of the Vile is up, grabs Worthy, and hits the ‘Hellseeker!’
Zach Davis: This is just pure carnage right now!
Shannan Lerch: Famine of the Vile hooks the leg!
KICKOUT BY BRYAN “BUZZ” WORTHY!
Shannan Lerch: He kicked out! Holy shit!
Zach Davis: How is that possible?!
Lyger is back on his feet and approaches Famine of the Vile as he gets up from the cover. From behind them Sarah Twilight makes her way to her feet and the three competitors form a triangle in the ring with only Bryan Worthy still on the mat.
Shannan Lerch: How is this going to go?
Twilight and Vile decide to throw Lyger out of the ring. Vile then goes for a Clothesline on Twilight, but Sarah ducks it and kicks him right in the balls!
Zach Davis: OOF!
Shannan Lerch: Is Jonny Fly going to allow that!?
Apparently so! Twilight follows it up by hitting the Twilight Zone!
Zach Davis: What a move!
Twilight drops to the mat and pins Famine, hooking the leg.
Shannan Lerch: SARAH TWILIGHT DOES IT! SARAH TWILIGHT WINS THE CONTENDERSHIP!
Fly rolls out of the ring, smirking.
Zach Davis: Sarah Twilight has just made history. She will be the first female competitor to challenge for the World Title in a singles match on a Pay Per View... wow.
Jonny walks up the ramp, smiling the whole time.
Shannan Lerch: Do you think Jonny Fly is stupid enough to assume that Sarah Twilight, as a woman, would be the easiest competitor to beat? I don't know about you, Zach, but that count seemed kind of fast...
Zach Davis: I agree, Shannan. That WAS definitely a bit of a fast count. You could attribute it to Fly's inexperience as a referee... or perhaps a bit of sexism, you're right. Fly just might think a woman would be easier to beat than a man.
As Fly disappears to the back, Sarah Twilight stands in the ring, victorious as the number one contender for Jonny Fly's World title. Suddenly, out from the back walks Gravedigger and MS-13. The crowd starts booing suddenly. Sarah turns to the entryway with a look of curiosity.
Shannan Lerch: What is HE doing here?
Gravedigger stands there for a couple of seconds with a smirk on his face before slowly clapping. The rest of MS-13 joins in and the whole group is apparently clapping for Sarah Twilight.
Zach Davis: Is this sarcasm, or... what?
The group finally stops and turn around and head backstage once more, leaving everyone wondering what that was all about. Sarah continues to look towards the entryway for a few more seconds before continuing to taunt the fans over her huge win.
"Ghosts n' Stuff" hits the airwaves, as FPV walks out the curtains, both the US title and Tag title in hand. The smile that is usually on his face is absent, however, replaced bya stern look. As he gets into the ring, he is given a mic.
Mr. FPV: Hello all, I'm here to be serious for a minute.
The crowd hushes to hear what he has to say.
Mr. FPV: Now... I have absolutely no idea why the hell this is happening...but apparently, Seth has given Roy a title shot at Explosion for my US title. Does this make any sense to you, cause it sure as hell doesn't make any to me. Why give a title shot to a man who has done nothing but bitch, moan, and be cheap? This man doesn't warrant any of my time...you know what, fuck it. Roy, I know you're in that locker room, why don't you come out and tell everyone why you believe you deserve a title shot? Come on, no one's gonna' bite.
There is a silence, and after a few moments, “Hear Me Now” by Hollywood Undead blasts through the speakers. Roy Speede steps out onto the stage with a microphone in his hands, and the fans erupt with boos. As they start to settle down, he holds the microphone up to his lips.
Roy Speede: You know what, Franky? Shut up! That’s what! Nobody gives a damn what you’ve got to say. But you know what else? I figure I’ll entertain your ignorance for once. The reason I deserve a title shot... You know what? I probably don’t deserve a title shot. But Seth Lerch realizes that an appearance by Roy Speede on Pay-Per-View equates to sales tripling what he’d earn without me. So he used common sense to figure out the match I wanted to fight in, and booked it. He put me against my former tag team partner, who thinks he’s better than me or something because he won the titles alongside some other motherfucker and then beat the washed up chump who went by Donald Deruty for so long. News flash, Franky, you’re not better than me because of it, and I’m gonna show you exactly that. Never mind my qualifications for having a title match. You should best worry about finding a way to beat me, if there is such a thing.
FPV just scoffs at this, looking around mouthing "Is this dude for real?"
Roy Speede: What's that, Franky? I can't hear you! But there's one thing that's still going through my mind, and through the minds of the entire arena.
Crowd: CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?!?
Mr. FPV: Yes Roy, I can hear. I hear you even most of what I'm hearing through the PA system is a bunch of bullshit!
Roy Speede: You’re right, Franky boy! Now that you spoke up and used your microphone, I hear the bullshit in the speaker system too! Which is why I reiterate my original statement; Shut up, Franky!
Mr. FPV: Roy, I'mma tell you just why you don't deserve to be WCF US Champion. First off, you're the most egotistical man whose name is not Jonny Fly, second, you're nothing but a freaking coward, having to get in a cheap shot in the middle of a match-
Roy Speede: And third, nobody wants to see their beloved little Frankie Venable get hurt at the hands of The Silver Lining! But you know what, Franky? It’s not always what these fans want. What really matters is who has more determination to win a match, physical stamina to keep going, and heart to push further than the other guy. And Franky, you don’t have that stamina, and you don’t have that heart. You may call yourself determined all you want, but you don’t have the balls to go one on one with me, and you don’t have the heart to outlast Roy Speede.
Mr. FPV: You know what Roy? If this were a normal match, I'm sure you'd just try and get another cheap shot and run away. Well, I don't plan on that happening. If we're gonna' fight at Explosion Roy, we're going to do it...in a FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE match! That way, there's no way you can escape; I'll just find you and whoop your ass.
Roy Speede: Think that all you want, Franky. You’ll regret that challenge when I kick your ass all the way from ringside to the US Mint and back! You’re on!
He turns around to go back to the locker room, but stops.
Roy Speede: Oh, and have fun tangling with Greenfever!
“Hear Me Now” hits the speakers, and Roy Speede walks backstage.
Mr. FPV is standing in the ring, waiting for his match to begin. Kyle Steel raises his mic to his mouth.
Kyle Steel: And the Main Event is about to begin. Already in the ring is one half of the current tag team champions, Mr. FPV! And his partner. . .
The house lights go out in the arena as the opening of "2nd Sucks" by A Day To Remember flares up. Strobe lights begin to go insane when the vocals blare out of the sound system as Brad Kane appears in the entry way. The crowd is thrilled seeing him as Brad inhales before he makes his way down the ring. A few hands get slapped away as once Brad is at ringside, he hops up on the ring apron. The lights are back to normal as they enter the ring as he heads to the nearest turnbuckle and goes up to the middle buckle. Some take pictures as he steps down, inhaling once more as he does the same thing on the other side of the ring. He then backs into the corner as he then waits for the match to begin as his entrance song fades off.
Kyle Steel: From Belfast, Ireland, he stands at six feet tall and weighs in at 227 pounds. He is Brad KANE!
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 -ACW Forced Censored- Price" chant when suddenly..."Huntin' Humans? Ain't nuthin but nuthin'. They all run like scared little rabbits. Run rabbit run. RUN RABBIT RUN!" blasts over the PA system. Aggressive drums kick in and crescendo into "Clap for the Killers" by Street Sweeper Social Club. The theme is drowned out by the crowd, who are split in half by boos and cheers as Jay Price and Greenfever emerge from the darkness. The two make their way down the ramp toward the ring, not paying attention to the trash being hurled at them. 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.
Kyle Steel: And their opponents, the challengers. They are the Ladykillerz!
Zach Davis: And the main event is about to begin! An awaited matchup between both teams.
Shannan Lerch: I hope Mr. FPV kicks Price's head off.
Zach Davis: Bias much?
Shannan Lerch: Not at all. If Brad hits him instead, I won't care.
Discussion between both teams follow, and it seems Price and Frankie will start the match. Green and Kane both turn towards their corners, taking their places as the ref calls for the bell
DING DING DING
Price and Frankie circle up, searching for any intial openings, and finding none. So instead they lock up in a collar and elbow lock up, with Price taking advantage. He pulls Frankie closer, attempting an early sleeper hold, but Frank elbows him in the face, and reverses into a full nelson. Powering out, Price grabs Frankie's head and flips him over in a snapmere, transitioning into a chinlock. Frankie reaches back, raking the eyes of Price to get free. The ref mentions fair fighting, but Frankie hears none of it as he stands up.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, take those eyes out of the socket.
Zach Davis: Are you going to be like this the entire time?
Shannan Lerch: Excited about this main event? I'm excited about every fight, especially hard hitting ones. And speaking of hard hitting.
Shannan spoke about the running knee strike that Frankie performed. Jay's head snaps back, and Frankie goes for the first pin of the match.
A quick pin that Jay Price gets out of easily; more damage needed to be done to get the win over Price. Price rolls to his feet, and Frankie shoots the rope. But Price was ready for him, and brought FPV over with a powerslam that shakes the ring. Frankie arches his back, and Price stomps it back to the mat. And he doesn't stop, stomping endlessly, until the referee steps in to stop the onslaught. Price ceases, but not before kicking Frankie in the head.
Zach Davis: Jay Price isn't out here to make friends. He wants those championship belts.
Price looks over to Greenfever, who merely nods. Price smirks, and pulls Frankie up to his feet, and delivers a stunning superkick that levels the champ, followed by the inevitable words "BOOM! Headshot!"
Zach Davis: Price just stole Frankie's finisher!
Shannan Lerch: And the Ladykillerz aren't finished yet.
No, they aren't finished until Greenfever launches into this fight. And by launch, we mean seeing Fever springboard up, coming onto Frankie with a 450 Splash. Green rolls out the way, and Price goes for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: But Kane is in there for the save.
Brad Kane had entered the ring, and threw Price off of Frankie, only to eat a dropkick by Green. The ref breaks them apart, and sends Fever to his corner, while Kane pulls Frankie closer to his corner. Greenie tags in, the same instant Kane taps Frankie in his own corner. So both men meet each other in the ring while Frankie rolls out onto the concrete.
Zach Davis: Kane is on fire early!
Kane launches up at Greenfever with a dropkick that stuns the challenger. Stumbling back, Greenie can do little but eat the STO, followed by a European Uppercut that finally drops him to the mat. And Kane rubs it in by leaping flat-footed into the air, and landing with both feet on Greenie's chest.
Shannan Lerch: I'd much rather Kane being kicking Price's ass at the moment.
Zach Davis: Well if it makes you feel better, Frankie just got him for you.
What Zach meant was while Price watched from his corner, Frankie snuck up behind him and clipped him in the knees. Price buckled, and Frankie tossed him off the apron. Price landed on his knees, and stood to his feet quickly, but even then he couldn't stop the lariat that sent him over the barrier into the crowd.
Zach Davis: Price is partying with the fans now!
Shannan Lerch: Kane would rather party after a successful retention of his title. Which could happen if he connects with the next move.
While Frankie was pummeling Price outside the ring, Kane had Greenie on his knees, and he was ready for the Killshot. The leg strikes out and. . .
Zach Davis: The Killshot missed!
Shannan Lerch: Greenie fell onto his back
Greenfever kips to his feet, and takes Kane down with a picture-perfect DDT. And with Kane on his back, he climbs on the top rope hoping to finish this off.
Zach Davis: Greenfever is looking to end this!
Shannan Lerch: But Frankie makes the save!
Seeing his partner in trouble, Frankie ran over to Greenie and grabbed his ankle to prevent flight. Kane kips up to the delight of the crowd, and grab's Greenie's head. Running forward, Kane takes Fever down with a bulldog, driving his head into the mat.
Zach Davis: Powerful move from Kane.
Shannan Lerch: Frankie wants to outdo it, though
As Kane pulls Greenfever to his feet, Frankie scales the ropes. Stepping back out of range, Brad watches as his partner launches off, taking Switches to the mat with a lariat.
Zach Davis: Top Rope Lariat!
Shannan Lerch: Price is out of the crowd now.
But Frankie launches himself onto Price, taking him down while Kane makes the pin.
But Greenfever suddenly catches Kane with a small package, with his only help outside the ring
Zach Davis: NO! No! Kane kicks out!
Both Brad Kane and Greenfever lay on the mat, exhausted. After several moments, both Price and FPV appear at their various corners, waiting for a tag. Kane and Greenfever crawl towards them... slowly but surely...
Shannan Lerch: Who makes it first?
Both dive, and both make it! FPV and Price enter the ring, and begin brawling in the middle of it! Both men hit the other with various rights and lefts!
Zach Davis: Quite the brawl!
Mr. FPV gets the upper hand, throwing Price to the ropes and then Clotheslining him down! Price stumbles up, as Greenfever and Kane both roll out of the ring, and FPV backs up...
Shannan Lerch: He's going for the Headshot!
...but literally a half second before he's about to launch off his kick, Hear Me Now hits!
Zach Davis: That's Roy Speede's music!
FPV is in mid-kick as he hears Speede's music, and it clearly throws him off. The kick is far from perfect, and this gives Price the chance to avoid it, before rolling FPV up in a small package!
Shannan Lerch: WHAT-
No music plays. Jay Price simply stands up and is handed one of the Tag Team Titles, much to his surprise.
Zach Davis: This isn't Jay Price's first Title win in WCF, but I don't think he was totally expecting to win tonight!, after his losing streak.
Greenfever, in a corner now, is also handed a Tag Team Title, as well as his People's Title. FPV and Kane are both outside of the ring. FPV is clearly very upset, and Brad Kane looks up into the ring, pissed of course.
Shannan Lerch: We heard Roy Speede's music, but he is nowhere to be found. Was he behind that distraction?
In the ring, Greenfever begins to giggle. Not the giggle of Greenfever... but the giggle of Switches.
Zach Davis: Uh oh-
Price's eyes go wide as the man that is now Switches the Clown tackles Price down. The crowd is awfully confused as Switches picks up the People's Title, runs at Jay... and smashes it into his head!
Shannan Lerch: There is A LOT going on here. Whatthe hell.
Switches stands, lifting up the People's Title and a Tag Title, as his kind-of-partner holds his bleeding head in pain on the mat. FPV and Kane head to the back, neither man all that happy.
Zach Davis: Switches versus Price, and FPV vs Speede in one week... as well as Fly versus Twilight, Balfore vs Adams and Oblivion vs Gravedigger...
Shannan Lerch: I can't wait!
Slam fades to black.
