Drunk and Crazy by Mogwai plays and Slam is live on the air! The capacity crowd is buzzing even more than usual as we go live to Zach and Shannan.
Zach Davis: Welcome to Slam! What an amazing show we have tonight-
Shannan Lerch: But first we've got to talk about last week.
Zach Davis: I'd rather not.
Shannan Lerch: The long and the short of it is this. Gravedigger, Logan, Seth Lerch, FPV, Doc Henry, and Bishop and Priest have aligned forces to form the Darkside of Treachery.
Zach Davis: Yes, and turned WCF upside down when they interfered in last week's main event. Let's just move on.
Shannan Lerch: Well, we can't, because we've got to talk about the main event. Gravedigger and Logan are teaming up.. GOD, that sounds weird to say.. they're teaming up to take on Jonny Fly in a handicap match.
Zach Davis: Figures. Seth Lerch, abusing power! Hooray! Good times! Ugh.
Shannan Lerch: Shut up, Zach. We have two of the Big Dick Superstars, Chad Evans and Johnny Reb, in tag team action against Future Gods Inc., Gein Spector and Benjamin Atreyu.
Zach Davis: Reb will compete for the Tag Team Titles next week with Kira Sakazaki, but tonight Kira is facing Famine of the Vile. Monsters, Inc. have turned their sights onto Haruna.
Shannan Lerch: In a rematch from Asesinato de Mayo, Oblivion and FPV are going one on one. The last match was in Dr. Heill's basement, this one will be in a WCF ring.
Zach Davis: Nathan von Liebert has requested a match to go one on one with Adam Young. Young is one of the most sought after opponents right now.
Shannan Lerch: And he'll be facing Corey Black next week at Blast! He lured Black out of his self imposed exile from WCF, and Young views that as a victory for himself.
Zach Davis: The new team of Johnny Stylez and Tommy Kain are in action against The Future Elements, Kid Phantasm and Jeff Purse. We'll see what frame of mind Phantasm is in ever since NvL and Monsters, Inc. kidnapped Nightmare.. yeesh.
Shannan Lerch: We have two big contendership matches. We'll find out who will compete at Blast for the People's Title, either Stuart Slane or Hank Lane, and who will compete for the Internet Title, either Hunter, Jakobs, or Williams.
Zach Davis: Three HUGE returns tonight. Two Alliance members, Michael Santiago and Ryan Blake, and also Terry Roberts. They're in a Triple Threat. Which may not be too fair to Roberts, but here we are.
Shannan Lerch: In another triple threat, we have Apathy, Eric Price, and Zombie McMorris.
Zach Davis: Two more singles matches on the show also. Sweetdaddy debuts against Joel Hall, and Odin Balfore defends his Title against Neal Anderthaw.
Shannan Lerch: Let's start the show!
The lights in the arena go out and spotlights start roaming all over the arena as the opening sounds of “Cowboys From Hell” by Pantera starts playing. The crowd starts booing as Seth Lerch walks out from the back. A couple of seconds later two figures come rolling out in motorized wheelchairs. The two in the wheelchairs have matching green and white outfits and long gray-haired wigs on their heads. It’s obvious that the two men in the wheelchairs are the leaders of Darkside of Treachery, Logan and Gravedigger.
Seth turns and shakes his head at Gravedigger and Logan. Suddenly, their chairs surge forward and down the ramp. Logan decides to have a little fun with his and swerves back and forth. Unfortunately, he manages to sideswipe Gravedigger half-way down the ramp and the Epitome of Hardcore’s wheelchair falls off the ramp and Gravedigger spills out of it, smashing into the barricade holding the fans back.
Seth rolls his eyes and walks down the ramp as Gravedigger gets up. He points at Logan and starts yelling at him. Logan can barely keep from laughing. Logan pulls forward and turns the corner. He steers his chair in front of the steps and rams forward into the steel steps several times in an obviously vain attempt to go up the stairs in his motorized wheelchair. The crowd is booing like crazy while trying to keep from laughing at the outrageous sight of Gravedigger and Logan.
Gravedigger rolls into the ring as Logan gets up out of the wheelchair, bounds up the steel steps and perches on the nearby turnbuckle, taunting the crowd. He leaps over the top rope and lands on his feet in the ring as Seth Lerch walks up the steps and bends over between the top and middle rope, stepping into the ring. As the music still plays, Gravedigger and Logan stand in the middle of the ring together. They both pull off the wigs and grab hold of their matching DoT jumpsuits that are ridiculously outrageous and they both rip them off due to the Velcro material.
The music fades out and the lights come back up to reveal both men wearing the same t-shirt. It is a picture of the back of a milk carton. Kid Phantasm’s girlfriend, Nightmare, is pictured in the center of it with the words ‘Have You Seen Me?’ placed around the picture. Logan turns around and Gravedigger nods his head while pointing to the back of Logan’s shirt. It reads “NO!! WHO CARES?!?” The t-shirt causes huge amounts of boos from the crowd. Logan and Gravedigger eat the reaction up and both try and bring further attention to the shirt by standing on different turnbuckles, pointing at the front and back of the shirt. They finally hop down as Seth walks over with a microphone. Seth grins as the crowd boos him mercilessly. Much moreso than usual.
Seth Lerch: Love you too, Reading. Love you too.
Which somehow intensifies the booing.
Seth Lerch: You'd think I'd have A LOT to talk about. And you'd be right. I do! What a goddamn week. I've had more emails, phone calls, Tweets, etc. etc. from fans (and my employees) than any other week in the history of Slam. So... clearly, I'm doing my job right! You fans are going to buy the SHIT out of the PPV, aren't you!?
Seth Lerch: Let's face it. Either Gravedigger or FPV is walking out of that show with the World Title, guaranteed. Either one of the most decorated wrestlers in WCF history returns to his rightful place as Champion, or one of the hottest, most talented, most hardworking stars in the company finally wins the big one. Either way, its a great story, and something you people are going to eat up. The Darkside of Treachery wins once again.
Seth Lerch: But enough about that. I'd like to issue a formal apology. I've made many mistakes in the past, but this may have been one of the worst. Clearly, after Slam last week..... I'm not perfect, guys. No one is. And I owe a huge apology.
The fans are silent, not believing it. Seth turns to Gravedigger.
Seth Lerch: GRAVEDIGGER, I'M SORRY FOR EVER TURNING ON YOU!
The fans boo as Gravedigger laughs. Seth shakes his hand, hugging him briefly.
Seth Lerch: Now, Logan. Don't get jealous.
Logan rolls his eyes.
Seth Lerch: Now that that's out of the way, there is one particular Pantheon member I'd like to speak to.
A slight "PHAN-TAS-EM!" chant rings throughout the arena.
Seth Lerch: That's right. Kid Phantasm.
As Seth says his name, the crowd pops.
Seth Lerch: Kid, I owe you an apology too. Despite what everyone may think, I'm not a stupid man. And I have my resources. I... I know where Nightmare is.
Hushed shock from the crowd; they realize how important Nightmare is to Kid.
Seth Lerch: First of all, she's... well, Kid, I hate to say this, but she's really not looking too good. Oblivion, Famine, and Nathan have really done a number on her. I have the footage. Take a look.
Seth motions towards the jumbotron... which begins showing game footage of the video game Soul Calibur V, which stars a character named Nightmare. There are different clips of the Soul Calibur character Nightmare fighting other SoulCal characters; the crowd boos and begins to chant "BULLSHIT!"
Seth Lerch: Okay, okay, I kid, I kid. But seriously, Kid. I get it. You don't care about me, my stable, or anyone else until you get your precious Nightmare back. Why did I ever even employ you? You're part of one of the most historic moments in Slam HISTORY, and all you care about is some pussy? Bro, there are plenty of fish in the sea. Forget Nightmare.
The fans are livid. "ASS-HOLE, ASS-HOLE, ASS-HOLE."
Seth Lerch: Okay, okay.... maybe the fans are right. I DO have information. Kid Phantasm, I wasn't lying. Nightmare really isn't looking too good. In fact, she's suffered several severe burns. Roll the footage!
Zach Davis: Oh, what now...
The jumbotron lights up... and shows, of course. Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street.
Seth Lerch: THERE SHE IS! NIGHTMARE! SHE'S ON ELM STREET! GO RESCUE HER, KID! GO! GO! GO!
More booing! The fans have rarely hated Seth as much as they do now. The clip fades.
Seth Lerch: Okay, okay. So those last two tidbits of info were just jokes. But here is the biggest joke of them all, Kid. I really wasn't lying, I DO know information about Nightmare's whereabouts. The punchline?
Seth Lerch: I WILL NEVER TELL YOU.
The fans boo yet again as Seth hands the mic off. Logan grabs it from Seth and goes to speak but is delayed by the audience.
LO - GAN SUCKS!
LO - GAN SUCKS!
LO - GAN SUCKS!
Logan: No, you suck! I'm not the one flipping burgers to pay witness to the greatest group in the history of wrestling cutting a promo. I don't work for boudle pay, no, no.. I make more money in a month than you boudles make in a year! SHUT UP! The Face of Treachery doesn't need to flip burgers.
He shakes his head.
Logan: I flip boudles, flip them upside head first into a trashcan and send their stinkin' asses straight to Connector City!
After nodding a bit he paces the ring and continues.
Logan: Last week I came out here and told each and every one of you Jonny loving morons the truth. I said your beloved boudle God is going to be gone faster than he showed up.. I SAID FASTER THAN HE SHOWED UP!
Logan: SHUT UP! That's right Flynatics, because at Blast marks the official end of flappy lips Flygina!
A moment is taken to properly produce a chuckle of treachery.
Logan: But I'm afraid I can't sit out here and smell you trashcans all night. I need to save my breath for all the moaning and groaning I'm about to go backstage and do when I watch those Nightmare torture porn tapes that got recorded. Oh.. wait... what?
He smiles handing the microphone to Gravedigger. Gravedigger doesn’t even have time to lift the microphone before the boos just pour out from every corner of the arena. Gravedigger gestures at Logan and Seth in the ring with him the boos just get so deafening that even Logan puts his hands against his ears. Gravedigger waits a couple of minutes before they get that out of their system. He lifts the mic up.
Gravedigger: You guys are just the sweetest ever I swear. You hate me with a passion so passionate that you’re willing to go hoarse just to show your disdain for me.
Gravedigger turns to Logan.
Gravedigger: Logan, I gotta disagree with you on something you said.
Logan cocks an eyebrow, looking at Gravedigger curiously.
Gravedigger: You said we are the greatest group in wrestling history, but that’s not we were being told a few days ago. Who was one of the most vocal who badmouthed us...let me think. Who was the guy whose girlfriend is on our shirts. Shit, I forgot his name all of a sudden, damn old age.
Gravedigger looks out at the crowd.
Gravedigger: Was it Kid Vagtasm?
Heavy boos from the crowd. Gravedigger looks confused at Seth who shakes his head.
Gravedigger: No? Wait, wait, I got it…Kid Phanjism?
More boos from the crowd. Seth steps over and whispers something in Gravedigger’s ear and he nods before turning back to the crowd. Seth steps back over to the side.
Gravedigger: Oh, it’s Kid Phantasm. I should have paid more attention when Seth was talking. It’s that damn old age of mine, I probably blacked out and took a nap or something. No, Logan, Kid said something the other day about how we’re the worst group in wrestling history.
Gravedigger starts laughing followed by Logan laughing as well.
Gravedigger: That’s got to be the funniest damn thing I’ve ever heard. How can the Darkside of Treachery be the worst group in wrestling history when that’s all people were talking about this week. Fans, wrestlers, the dirtsheets, hell even those three guys that are in the ring crew that follow me around everywhere nipping at my heels like lost puppies couldn’t stop talking about us. We were one of the top trends on Twitter all week long, especially last week on Slam and the next day. People talked more about us than the economy or their favorite TV shows. Hell we were talked about more than OKC and Miami in the NBA Finals.
See that just goes to show you what kind of idiots are running around rampant here in WCF. Everyone wants to talk about us, everyone wants a piece of us because we’re the hottest thing on television today! Tonight, Jonny Fly gets to be closer to greatness as he steps into the ring with two WCF legends like myself and Logan. Don’t worry though, Fly. Logan and myself have already talked and we agreed that there’s no sense in destroying you tonight. There’s no reason to take you out like we nearly did with your cronies Jeff ManPurse and Kid Phanjism. No, we want you to make it to Blast next week so that you can be taken down in front of everyone on PPV.
Like Seth said, that belt is coming back to the Darkside of Treachery with myself or FPV. I don’t know about FPV but I’ve been training my ass off ever since Seth announced that I would be in that match and I will be training my ass off until that very morning of the show. I want there to be no doubt when you lose that belt that you got beat by the better man. Because that’s exactly who I am…the better man. Next Sunday, Blast marks the downfall of the new blood here in WCF. It starts with the WCF World title leaving the hands of Jonny Fly.
“Cowboys from Hell” by Pantera hits the speakers. The show cuts to commercial.
“ Cave Man “ By Twenty Fingers hit’s the PA system as Neal Anderthaw
Zach Davis: Its time for our opening match.
Shannan Lerch: When’s the last time we opened the show with a TV title Defense?
Zach Davis: I don’t remember, it’s been a long while.
Neal gets into the ring and does some streches on the ropes as he prepares for the match at hand.
“ With Oden On Our Side” Hit’s the PA system.
Zach Davis: Hey Shannan, why did the cave man die out ?
Shannan Lerch: Why?
Zach Davis: We’re about to see in a moment.
The arena grows dark as the fans get to their feet to catch a glimpse of the stage. The fans stand and cheer an once the vocals starts, the arena lights flash back on and there stands Odin Balfore, centre stage. Odin stares down at the ring with a sinister grin as the fans sing along with the chorus.
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist... the battle is.. already won!
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist... the battle is.. already won!
The fans pop insanely right after as Odin begins to walk down the ramp at a slow an methodical pace. Once he gets to the foot of the ring, he steps up on it and looks around the arena again before stepping over the ropes..
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist...
Odin cuts off the fans as he raises his hand in triumph. Odin turns back to the ring as the fans finish their part.
Crowd: The battle is.. already won!
Odin takes the title off his shoulder and hands it to the ref as Neal paces around the ring, waiting for the bell.
Zach Davis: We have good life insurance here, right ?
Shannan Lerch: WE do, I highly doubt Neal does.
Shannan Lerch: I’ll call the EMTs
Neal tries to lock up with Odin but gets shoves across the ring. Neal comes back at him but gets sent flying across the other side of the ring an into the turnbuckle. Odin charges at Neal and connects with a big boot ! Odin grabs Neal and throws him over his shoulder and hit’s a running power slam!
Odin gets up and looks towards the ramp mouthing
“ That’s you Orbit, that’s you. “
Odin picks up Neal who tries to fight back now, punch Odin in the gut. Odin doubles over as Neal hit’s the ropes for a cross body but Odin catches him and slams him down.
Shannan Lerch: Odin breaks up the pin. He just lifted Neal’s shoulders off the mat.
Zach Davis: Odin’s sending a message to Orbit right now.
Odin picks Neal up and presses him over his head while staring down at the entrance way. Odin benches Neal a few times before positioning his hands to where he presses Neal with just one arm and lets him free fall to the mat before running the ropes and hitting a big splash.
Shannan Lerch: Each attack is just a taunt to Steve Orbit.
Odin walks over to the ropes and sits on them to hold them open, inviting Orbit in.
Crowd: OR-BIT ! OR-BIT ! OR - BIT !
Odin looks around the arena and rallies the fans an encourages the Orbit chants. A few moments pass but Orbit doesn’t come out, Odin turns his attention back to Neal whose up on the top rope and drop kicks Odin right out of the ring.
Zach Davis: WOW! Look at that! Neals first offensive move and he knocks Odin Balfore right out of the ring.
Odin gets to his feet as Neal vaults over the ropes and splashes Odin to the floor before he can get his bearings. Neal gets up and starts stomping away at Odin, trying to keep him down. Odin gets to his hands and knees as Neal takes a running star and punts him right in the face.
Neal rolls back into the ring and back out to the floor to continue his assault but Odin gets to a knee
Shannan Lerch: Odin just connected with that knock out punch.
Odin picks up Neal and rolls him back into the ring. Odin climbs back into the ring, picks up Neal and starts with some clubbing blows. At this point, Golden Joey and "The Mack" Steve Orbit appear at the top of the ramp. Orbit is in full pimp gear, with matching fluffy pink top hat, robe and slippers, and he's wearing oversized pink sunglasses with flashing lights. Joey rolls himself in his wheelchair ahead of Steve as they slowly make their way down the ramp.
Zach Davis: Well, finally, here comes the Mack.
Shannan Lerch: Odin's been taunting him all night, he must have known he was here in the building even though he has the night off.
Odin continues pounding on Neal, not noticing that Steve Orbit is making his way to ringside.
Zach Davis: Odin still going to work on Neal, got him in a bear hug now.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes Steve Orbit... heading in our direction?
Orbit grabs a folding chair and takes a seat at the announcers table. Joey sits at ringside, watching the match. Orbit puts on a headset.
Shannan Lerch: Um.. Hey, Mr. Orbit--
Steve Orbit: It's Steve... or you can call me Mack, baby.
Shannan Lerch: [laughs] Mmmm... ok, Mack.
Zach Davis: I think I'm gonna be sick.
Odin squeezes Neal tighter and tighter in the bearhug.
Shannan Lerch: So, Mack, I'm sure you're here because Odin was calling you out?
Steve Orbit: Nah, baby, I'm a big Odin Balfore fan. I got the t-shirt, I got his mother fuckin' poster on my wall. I'm basically, you know what I'm sayin'... I'm basically his number one fuckin' fan.
Zach Davis: Now why do I find that hard to believe.
Odin notices Joey at ringside, and lets go of the bearhug. Neal collapses to the mat. Odin walks over to the side of the ring where Joey is, and they start talking trash to one another.
Steve Orbit: Me and Joey just came out here to make sure the ref is doing his mother fuckin' job. Everybody saw that bullshit fast count he did last week to give Odin the win. The mother fucker was hatin' on me, for Pimp Slappin' his ass.
Zach Davis: Oh, please. You were out cold, Steve.
Steve Orbit: Hey, man, I got two words for you. Pimp mother fuckin' SLAP.
Zach Davis: That's four words.
Steve Orbit: Yeah, keep it up, homie.
Shannan Lerch: Behave, boys.
Neal is still on the mat, barely moving other than a twitch now and then. Odin looks over to the announcer table, and motions Steve to come into the ring. The crowd starts to cheer.
Shannan Lerch: Well, Mack? You going in there?
Steve Orbit: Nah, baby, that ain't why I came out here. I told you I'm just here to enjoy the mother fuckin' match like a regular fan.
Zach Davis: Give me a break.
Neal starts to get back to his feet, Odin turns around and grabs him. A knee lift sends Neal back to the mat.
Steve Orbit: Well, it's been real nice talkin' to y'all.
Orbit gets up, and takes the chair with him. He walks over to ringside and stands with Golden Joey, taunting Odin from outside the ring.
As Odin is having words with Joey and Orbit, Neal crawls up from behind, and rolls him up into a pin.
Shannan Lerch: Kickout at 1! I can't believe Neal even had the balls to try that.
Zach Davis: He's gonna pay for it now.
Odin whips Neal into the turnbuckle, and starts hitting him with shoulder thrusts. Joey starts arguing with the ref, distracting him. Orbit sneaks into the ring.
Zach Davis: Orbit is behind Odin with the steel chair!
Shannan Lerch: Odin ducked just in time! Neal just took a steel chair to the face!
Orbit slides out of the ring before the ref notices he was there. Odin pins Neal with both hands on his chest, staring down Orbit.
DING DING DING
"With Oden On Our Side" starts to play over the PA.
Zach Davis: Odin gets the win here, but what is Steve Orbit doing now?
Orbit grabs a mic from the announcer table. He stands at ringside, next to Golden Joey.
Steve Orbit: Alright y'all, let's hear it for Odin Balfore, what a win!
The crowd is a mixture of boos and cheers.
Steve Orbit: Cut the music, yo.
Odin's music cuts off.
Steve Orbit: Ok now y'all SHUT THE FUCK UP, and let a mother fuckin' pimp speak!
The crowd boos for a moment and then dies down. Odin stands in the ring, staring down Orbit.
Steve Orbit: You know, Odin... shit was goin' pretty fuckin' good for me, up until Asesinato de Mayo. I was winning every week... I won the TV title. I was on a fuckin' roll. Yeah, shit was goin' real good... until YOU decided to attack me.
The crowd cheers for a moment.
Steve Orbit: Yeah, you came out there, and you attacked me. Blindsided me in front of thousands of motherfuckers in Mexico, and many thousands more watching at home. Then, the next week at Slam... I lost my TV title to you, on a bullshit disqualification. And last week, you fuckin' beat me again, Odin.
The crowd cheers again.
Steve Orbit: Yeah, you been a real fuckin' thorn in my side since Mexico, mother fucker. And let me tell you something. I've watched you Odin... you're a proud mother fucker, right? Well, the Mack is a proud mother fucker, too. I got a lot of pride. And losing to you... it hurt my pride, Odin.
Orbit starts to pace around.
Steve Orbit: And let me tell you somethin' else. Normally, I go into every match... I'm not like some of these other sick mother fuckers in the WCF. I don't come out here, wantin' to hurt people... wantin' to injure people, make them bleed, make them suffer. Nah, that ain't me, Odin. This is my job, this is my work, that's it. Yeah, I'm a fighter... but not because I want to hurt people. It's just because... heh... I'm SO fuckin' good at it.
The crowd starts to boo.
Steve Orbit: But there's a difference this time. You... mother fucker, I wanna hurt you. I wanna make you suffer. I want to give you the beating of your fuckin' career, Odin Balfore.
Steve reaches into his robe and pulls out an envelope.
Steve Orbit: That's why I have, right here... pre-approved and signed by Seth Lerch, a contract. A contract for Steve Orbit versus Odin Balfore, next Sunday at Blast. But this ain't no standard mother fuckin' match... nah. This is a NO DQ, NO COUNTOUT match, with the WCF Television Championship at stake.
The crowd goes bananas.
Steve Orbit: So let's do this, Odin. Let's fuckin' settle this... let's settle Steve Orbit and Odin Balfore... live on PPV at Blast.
Odin is handed a mic by a ring attendant.
Odin Balfore: Orbit, you don't know a damn thing about pride. You've done nothing but cry since last month and you want to come at me about pride? Why don't you come in this ring and show me? You won't. You want to get yourself DQ'd, you want to attack me with a chair. Guys like you piss me off an I've been crushing guys like you since the day I walked in this door. So you want me at Blast? You want me to power bomb you through the ring, fine. You're on but why don't we do this right now since you're so eager to fight.
Zach Davis: WHOAH!
Shannan Lerch: A match at Blast an a brawl here tonight? I knew it was gonna be a good night.
Orbit slides in as he an Odin start to brawl in the middle of the ring. Orbit starts to stick and move, peppering Odin with rights. Odin takes a few wide swings but no luck. Orbit takes another shot but Odin catches it and throws Orbit into the corner. Odin runs for a big boot but Orbit slides out of the ring as Joey rolls himself over to his side. Joey seems to be telling Steve to get out of here, wait until next week.
"With Oden On Our Side" plays once again as Odin finally gets to celebrate his victory. He raises the TV title in the air as he and Steve Orbit lock eyes, as Orbit walks backwards, making his way up to ramp towards the exit. Steve is reluctant to leave the arena, as if he wants to continue the fight, but Joey insists that they leave.
Shannan Lerch: So the TV title will be on the line at Blast, in a no DQ no countout match!
Zach Davis: These two guys really want to hurt each other, Shannan. One of them may not walk away from Blast in one piece.
Seth Lerch is walking down the hallway backstage, looking kinda fidgety because he's well... Seth Lerch. He's smiling from ear to ear though. Yeah, he's probably drunk or high. From behind him we see Bobby Cairo appear, looking like a zillion bucks in a custom-made pinstripe suit with diamond cufflinks on the wrists and black leather loafers on his feet. Cairo catches up with Seth, putting his hand on his shoulder to stop him from walking. Startled, Lerch turns toward Cairo and replies.
Seth Lerch: Oh, geez, Bobby! I thought you were the fuzz! What the hell do you want?
Cairo lifts his arm up to reveal two photo negative strips in his hand.
Bobby Cairo: Do you know what these are, Seth?
Seth studies the objects for a right moment before responding.
Seth Lerch: It appears that they are photo negatives, Bobby. Is there anything else I can help you with tonight?
Cairo smiles and shakes his head.
Bobby Cairo: Do you know what is on these negatives, Seth? More pertinently, WHO, is on them?
Lerch cocks his head to the side, not sure what Cairo is getting at.
Seth Lerch: Uhh... I'm stumped, Bobby.
Bobby Cairo: Let's say that they contain a certain...
Bobby pokes the inside of his cheek with his tongue while smiling.
Bobby Cairo: A certain WCF owner performing certain acts with a certain someone.
Cairo waves the negatives in front of Seth's face, taunting him with them.
Bobby Cairo: Do you understand now, boss?
Seth's eyes grow wide and a scowl forms across his face.
Seth Lerch: WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Bobby smiles, knowing that Seth's outburst is an acknowledgement of guilt.
Bobby Cairo: I will tell you what I want, Seth. I want Jonny Fly to have a partner in tonight's main event and if that does not happen... I will personally hand these photos over to my good friend Julian Assange. You might have heard of WikiLeaks? Yes, I think you have based on that look of abject fear on your face. Now if, IF you agree to allow Jonny a partner, I will personally hand these negatives over to you at the end of the show.
Seth thinks about the offer, knowing that he really doesn't have a choice, and finally relents with a look of disgust on his face.
Seth Lerch: Fine! If Fly wants a partner, he can have his damn partner! To hell with you, Bobby! To hell with Pantheon! To hell with all of you!
With that Lerch storms off down the hallway, leaving only a smiling Bobby Cairo in his wake.
Bobby Cairo: Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.
Cairo winks at the camera and struts away.
Shannan Lerch: Whaaaaaat?
Zach Davis: Looks like our main event just became a tag match!
Shannan Lerch: Damnit, Seth. Whatever. The Future Elements are already in action, so who the hell is Fly going to get to be his partner? The 8th Wonder or something?
Zach Davis: We've heard rumors of someone making a return tonight.... guess we'll just have to see.
“Back Then” by Mike Jones blairs through the arena’s PA system. We see Sweetdaddy and his hoes walk out on stage. As Soon as Sweetdaddy’s feet hit the end of the stage, he does a little jiggle and red pyro shoots off of the stage.
Kyle Steel: The following match is scheduled for one fall! On his way to the ring, weighing in at three hundred fifty pounds, he is the Greatest PIMP Ever, SWEEEEETDADDY!
He and his hoes walk down the ramp. Sweetdaddy is jiving all the way down as his hoes follow him. He walks up the ring stairs and he waits for his hoe’s to do so. They get up on the apron and they hold down the top rope for Sweetdaddy to cross over. He gets in the ring and starts dancing a little. while his hoe’s stand on the outside of the ring.
Zach Davis: So Shannan, I think we finally found a professional wrestler you won’t sleep with.
Shannan Lerch: With the kind of money his hoes must be making to wear outfits like they’ve been shown to wear in his promos, I wouldn’t be surprised if I turned into one of his-I mean, you’re absolutely right, Zach.
Zach Davis: Ahaha! Smooth, Shan!
The arena lights go dark blue. Suddenly, a voice is heard.
"Tonight, the world will suffocate with the masked warrior that will take your breath away."
"The Air That I Breathe" by All That Remains is blasted through the arena as the lights go back to normal. El Matador II comes out from backstage and looks at the crowd. After the intro of the song is finished, El Matador II does the crotch chop, which triggers pyrotechnics on stage.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent, from Des Moines, Iowa, weighing 224 lbs, "The Second El Matador" Joel Hall!!!
El Matador II runs down the ramp and when he reaches the ring, he trampolines himself into the ring, triggering more pyrotechnics on the turnbuckles. He goes on one of the turnbuckles, takes his vest off and throws it at the crowd. Then he gets off and warms-up.
< DING-DING-DING! >
The two circle one another, and Sweetdaddy, using his size, manages to cut Matador off and back him into the corner. He drives a knee into his gut, and then pulls him out of the corner only to throw him back into the corner again.
Zach Davis: And it looks like Sweetdaddy is taking the advantage early in this one!
Sweetdaddy backs away and Matador quickly springs up to the second rope and leaps, aiming for a crossbody, but Sweetdaddy catches him and drops him with a side slam. He pins.
Matador kicks out, and Sweetdaddy gets up to his feet, and then places one boot on the midsection of his opponent, before stepping up and over him, flattening him in the process.
Zach Davis: OOH and that has to hurt!
Shannan Lerch: The big man could really hurt someone doing that, Zach!
Sweetdaddy pulls Matador to his feet, and unexpectedly gets a kick in the midsection, followed by a knee to the gut, and then Matador springs up using the ropes and catches Sweetdaddy with a kick to the side of the head that knocks the big man to his knees. Matador bounces off the far ropes and dropkicks Sweetdaddy in the back, sending him head first into the gap between the top and middle ropes. Matador points to his opponent and the crowd pops.
Zach Davis: We know what’s coming!
Matador hits the Tiger Feint Kick, or the 619 as most would recognize it, and then sets up for the Lionsault.
Shannan Lerch: He hits it! The Lionsault, and the combo known as The Kill connects!
< DING-DING-DING! >
Zach Davis: The one and only Joel Hall, El Matador, picks up the win!
Hank 'Thunder' Lane changed into his street clothes and tucked his hair up under his Chicago Cubs cap. He snuck out through a back door, bought himself a ticket and made his way to ringside. He sat there and watched the action for a little while. About midway through the match he took his cell phone out of his pocket and dialed a number. TEK answered on the first ring.
TEK: Yeah, What's up?
Hank 'Thunder' Lane: Are you in position man?
TEK: I definitely am! I'm ready to nail this punk ass Trick.
Hank 'Thunder' Lane: I know what you mean man but we have to move at the right time. It will be best to wait until the match is over so that we don't interfere in the outcome. Plus, He will be worn out then from the match. When you see me make my move then you make yours. Is everything set up with our partner in crime?
TEK: Yes, He is just waiting to see which way he runs.
Hank 'Thunder' Lane: That's good! Just wait until Price sees who it is! I can't wait! Alright man, Be ready. Later.
We come back from commercial and Apathy, Eric Price, and Zombie McMorris are in the ring.
Zach Davis: And here we go!
MATCH SUMMARY: The match starts off very evenly. Apathy goes right on the attack, taking it to Zombie McMorris, hitting him with a string of big moves, including a Falcon Arrow. Once she puts him into a Guillotine Choke, however, Eric Price makes his move and attacks. Price throws McMorris out then works over Apathy, stomping her and hitting an Olympic Slam for a nearfall. But Zombie comes back in and attacks both of them, hitting Price with a Double Arm Spike DDT, his World Tour 69! He then goes for his Axe Wound, a Gutwrench Powerbomb, on Apathy. But she shifts her weight around as she's lifted up and rolls Zombie up for the victory!
Shannan Lerch: Apathy pulls it off!
Hank 'Thunder' Lane waits until the exact moment to make his move. The other wrestlers exited the ring and when Price began to make his way out. Thunder jumped up and over the barricade surrounding the crowd. He grabbed a steel chair and as Price turned around to see who was behind him He hit Eric Price square in the head with the chair. The momentum sent him reeling backwards; He turned around to escape the onslaught only to run right into another chair being smacked into his head by TEK. Price began falling and used the railing for support. He makes it over the railing and through the crowd towards the back. As he turns to go out the exit into the concession area.
The Lights go out in the arena. The fans are in a panic when the area that Eric Price is trying to run is lit up with a Cross which spontaneously burst into flames. Eric is caught completely off guard as he gets a little nervous and runs through the crowd, to get to the entrance ramp. Eric Price is pointing at TEK and Hank laughing. You can hear him saying, “You got me! Good one!” BUT,
Eric Price is caught off guard again as The Lights go out for a second time in the arena. “Barton Hollow” begins to play through the PA system as the stage lights flicker with white and neon blue. Fog fills the area where Eric Price is standing shocked and confused. In the midst of the fog you can make out the silhouette of a man standing tall and then BAM!
Zach Davis: Oh My God! Its Steeltoe Joe!
Shannan Lerch: Marry me Joe!
Zach Davis: Calm down woman, what in the blue hell is going on here. Its chaos!
Joe throws a bunch of right hands into the face of Eric Price. TEK and Hank “Thunder” Lane run straight up to where the beat down is occurring and then, they themselves start beating the hell out of Eric Price. TEK slaps Price as he tries to get to his knees, but then Joe, he grabbed the belt from his pants and began to bring welts to the back of Eric Price by whipping him like a scolded dog. Hank Lane grabs Price’s legs and spreads them apart and then with a huge force slams his boot into the sack of Eric Prices nuts.
Zach Davis: Oh God! They are gang beating the poor man. Hank “Thunder” Lane just kicked Price in the balls!
Shannan Lerch: That is assuming he has testicles Zach.
Zach Davis: None the less, Shannan, I don’t know what is going on. TEK ended Joe’s career and now they are helping each other?
Just then TEK motions for a microphone; a ring announcer brings him one.
TEK: Eric, weren’t you just telling the world how you ended Steeltoe Joe’s career? Ha Ha Ha, well I made a few calls, Bobby Cario said it was more than ok, so with that being said, do you want to say all that to the newest addition to the WCF Roster, STEELTOE JOE!
The crowd is yelling out, Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe!
TEK hands the Mic to Joe. Who is kicking Eric price in the head until Price finally musters up the will and strength to run away from the gang beating.
Steeltoe Joe: Don’t let the door hit you in your ass. Get the hell out of here!
Joe, Hank, and TEK are all laughing as a piece of street justice was just served to the man of money Eric Price. TEK grabs the mic. from Joe and yells one more thing into it.
TEK: Now what is everybody going to say? TEK, Hank “Thunder” Lane, and STJ, all the mutha Bl***in Way!!!
The crowd goes nuts as TEK, Hank and Joe all hold each other hands up in the air.
“To Be Loved” by Papa Roach starts to play through the speakers and a spotlight shines down onto the stage. Some fans boo while others cheer. Ryan Blake steps on the stage of the arena and begins to run down the ramp. He then slides on his stomach into the ring, then comes to his feet. He walks to the far turnbuckle steps on the first rope and raises his arms to the fans and bounces on the rope. He then does the same on the opposite corner turnbuckle.
Kyle Steel: The following match is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Trenton, New Jersey, he is ‘The Hero’, Ryan BLAAAAAKE!
Shannan Lerch: Well now, it’s great to see this guy’s back in the mix. I never did get to see him wrestle in person, to tell the truth.
Zach Davis: Well, Shannan, you’ll get your chance tonight!
Kyle Steel: And his opponents...
“Swamped” by Lacuna Coil hits the speakers, and a spotlight shines down on the center of the stage.
Kyle Steel: First, from Birmingham, Alabama, he is ‘The Man With Many Names’... Um...
From within the crowd, Terry Roberts comes pushing through the people and jumps the guardrail beside the announcers, and then slides into the ring. Kyle turns around and sees him, and jumps back a bit startled.
Kyle Steel: He-uh... He is Terry ROBERTS!
Zach Davis: Haha! Terry sure had Kyle fooled!
Shannan Lerch: Obviously! It’s been forever since Mr. Roberts has been in the WCF ring, too. Long before I returned. I can’t wait to see what this guy can do!
Zach Davis: It won’t be long now, Shannan.
"King of my World" by Saliva cues up over the P.A. system and red strobe lights flood the entrance ramp. The silhouette of a man fills the tunnel and finally Michael Santiago emerges, drawing in the boos and cheers of the crowd as he makes his way down the ramp towards the ring.
Kyle Steel: And their opponent, from Staten Island, New York, he is ‘Black Charisma’, Michael SAAAAANTIIIIIAGO!
He jumps up on the ring apron and climbs through the second rope, looking around at the fans filling the arena, Michael taunts the fans in the center of the ring as the music begins to fade out.
Zach Davis: So since you’ve never seen any of these men actually compete, Shannan, who’s your early favorite before we get started here?
Shannan Lerch: Well, Zach, looking at the records these three accumulated during their first stints with the company, my money rests with Ryan Blake.
Zach Davis: We’ll see how that turns out, Shannan, but-
< DING-DING-DING! >
Zach Davis: It’s time to get this match underway!
The three men circle one another, staring one another down for a few moments, none of them really making the first move immediately. After a good thirty seconds or so, the crowd starts getting a bit frustrated.
Crowd: GO BLAKE GO!
Crowd: GO SAN-TI-A-GO!
Crowd: GO BLAKE GO!
Crowd: GO SAN-TI-A-GO!
The two members of The Alliance look at one another and nod, and then the two take off and drop Roberts with a clothesline. As he gets back up, the two hit him in unison with a pair of elbows to the chest that knock him down again, and as he springs up a second time, Blake catches him with a kick to the back of the knee, followed up by a dropkick from Santiago.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like The Alliance are working together to take out the bigger man before turning to one another here, and the strategy is appearing to work so far!
Zach Davis: But we’ll see if they can keep this up, Shannan. This match is anyone’s to win.
As Santiago gets back up after delivering the dropkick, he’s met by a right from Ryan Blake, who follows it with a left. Santiago fires back with a right of his own, and then when Ryan Blake swings again, he ducks, before lifting dashing forward and lifting ‘The Hero’ and planting him on the mat with what looks to be some sort of spear into spinebuster combination.
Zach Davis: What an excellent move from Black Charisma, and Ryan Blake must be hurting!
Shannan Lerch: I guess you were right about these two not working together the entire match.
Santiago gets to his feet after having dropped to his knees to finish the last move on Blake, and spins around just as Terry Roberts is getting to his feet. He walks over to him, and grabs his arm, attempting to whip him across the ring, but Roberts reverses it and sends Santiago running and bouncing off the ropes. On the return, Roberts sends Santiago on a ride with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, and drops down for the pin.
Zach Davis: That move was devastating, and you could see how close to the three Roberts got after hitting virtually just one move on Michael Santiago!
Shannan Lerch: I’d hate to be in the ring with that man.
Roberts grabs hold of Santiago, and pulls him to his feet before powering him down with a scoop slam. He drops down for another pin.
T- Ryan Blake breaks it up with a double axehandle to the back of Roberts’ head.
Shannan Lerch: Good job breaking up the pin there by Ryan Blake, protecting The Alliance’s interests in this match.
Zach Davis: But with Roberts on the rampage he’s on, does he really think that was the best idea?
As Roberts gets back to his feet, Blake catches him with a boot to the gut-NO! Roberts catches Blake’s foot, and spins him around, pulling him down onto the ground, locking him quickly into El Pozo, his reverse figure four hold!
Zach Davis: And another ferocious and possibly dangerous move executed by Terry Roberts, this time on Ryan Blake, and you can see the pain in his eyes!
Ryan starts crawling toward the ropes, but Roberts keeps the hold locked in as tight as he can, his hold slipping due to the denim of Ryan’s jeans however. Roberts grabs the leg of Ryan’s pants, and rips off one of his pants legs at the knee, and then gets to his feet, lifting Blake’s leg up in the air. Before he can do anything too damaging, however, his own knees buckle thanks to a fist to the back of the leg by Michael Santiago.
Shannan Lerch: And it looks like Santiago saved Ryan Blake big time there!
Ryan still falls to the mat and rolls to the outside to collect his thoughts as Santiago gets to his feet, and then leaps over Roberts, who’s on his knees, and hits him with a leg drop to the back of the head that causes Santiago to land awkwardly on his neck, perhaps doing more damage to him than to Roberts.
Zach Davis: Ouch! And that did not look good for Michael Santiago!
Shannan Lerch: Didn’t look too good for Terry Roberts either. Hey, Zach, why is he called ‘The Man With Many Names?’
Zach Davis: Well, to put it simply, his full name is Terry Jakob Martin Russel-Roberts, and being a mouthful, we kinda just call him Terry Roberts, The Man With Many Names.
Blake slides into the ring as Roberts is getting to his feet, and Roberts wastes little time whipping him across the ring and into the turnbuckle. Roberts goes running behind him, but Blake sidesteps, and Roberts crashes face-first into the turnbuckle. Blake rolls him up for a pin.
Shannan Lerch: Okay, Zach, I get it a bit. But it looks like Roberts almost got pinned right there! That was close!
Zach Davis: And excellent awareness by Ryan Blake to make that pin!
Blake is the first one to his feet, with Roberts not far behind, and across the ring, Santiago is pulling himself up with the ropes. Ryan hits Terry Roberts with a kick to the gut, but again Roberts catches it! But wait- Ryan Blake used it to step up for a HUGE enziguri! The kick echoes throughout the arena, and Roberts falls to the mat on his face as the crowd chants.
Crowd: GO BLAKE GO!
Crowd: GO BLAKE GO!
Crowd: GO BLAKE GO!
Ryan is up to his feet, and looks up just in time to duck under The Fault Line, Santiago’s patented superkick. He spins, and nails Santiago with a buzzsaw kick, and a pretty sharp one at that. He drops down and pins Santiago.
Blake looks up in frustration, and flips Roberts over to pin him.
The crowd collectively gasps as Roberts gets the shoulder up, and Blake is in disbelief. He wipes his forehead and then looks at the ref, who holds up two fingers, and Blake decides to make sure he gets the win. He grabs Roberts’ legs and flips him over into a Boston Crab.
Crowd: TAP OUT TERRY! < CLAP! > < CLAP! > < CLAP-CLAP-CLAP! >
Crowd: TAP OUT TERRY! < CLAP! > < CLAP! > < CLAP-CLAP-CLAP! >
But no! Before Roberts can tap out, even though it’s apparent in his eyes, Santiago connects with a shining wizard to the jaw of Ryan Blake that knocks him back and into the ropes. He ricochets off, and leapfrogs over Santiago. On the return off the other ropes, Santiago loads up and connects with The Fault Line! The crowd roars as Blake falls to the mat and Santiago drops down for the pin.
NO! Terry Roberts with the save at the very last possible second!
Zach Davis: Oh my-Oh my god! That was such a good save by Terry Roberts! I don’t believe it!
Shannan Lerch: And it kept the hopes of both himself and Ryan Blake alive for this match, and Santiago must be furious!
Roberts picks Santiago up, and wraps him up for an inverted DDT-but wait! Roberts spins, flipping Santiago over and planting him with a facebuster! BUT NO! That isn’t all, either! Roberts locks in the body scissors to complete the combo finisher he calls the Dragonslayer! The referee asks Santiago if he wants to tap, and Santiago shakes his head no. He reaches out in front of him toward the ropes, but they’re a good eight inches from the tips of his fingers, and the crowd boos as he starts fading, no signs of life being shown from Ryan Blake.
Zach Davis: It looks like Santiago is starting to fade from this one! The pain must be excruciating!
Shannan Lerch: Yep, and if he goes unconscious the ref will declare Roberts the winner!
The ref raises Santiago’s arm to check to see if he’s still conscious, and as it starts to fall, the ref watches closely. NO! Santiago keeps his arm from hitting the mat, showing signs of life as Ryan Blake starts to pull himself up with the ropes. Santiago reaches out again, and still having made no progress, his arm hits the mat again, but in a last ditch effort, he throws one leg out, and his foot hooks itself around the bottom rope. The ref starts counting.
Roberts releases the hold and rolls to his feet, pulling Santiago back toward the middle of the ring.
Ryan Blake: Hey Roberts!
Roberts spins around just in time to be hit with a HUGE clothesline from Ryan Blake, and the crowd pops big for the move. Blake pulls Roberts to his feet, and sets him up for a suplex-NO! A stalling suplex!-NO! Ryan Blake plants Terry Roberts with The Elite Assassination and goes immediately for the pin on Roberts!
< DING-DING-DING! >
“To Be Loved” by Papa Roach hits the speakers, and Ryan Blake slowly rolls to his feet after having picked up the pin. The referee raises his hand in victory as Santiago gets to his feet, and the two glare at one another before shaking hands. Santiago slides out of the ring as Blake continues to celebrate his win.
Zach Davis: What a match, and what an ending! Congrats Ryan Blake on the big return win!
Zach Davis: Alright, coming up next is a three way match, the winner of which will be granted number one contendership for the Internet title.
Shannan Lerch: That's right Zach, either "The Dare Devil" Jonathan Jakobs, Hunter Valentyne, or "GEKIDO" Jay Williams will go on to face Johnny Stylez at Blast.
"Something in Your Mouth" by Nickleback plays over the loud speakers as Hunter makes his way down the ramp to a chorus of boos. He stops in the middle of the ramp as green and black pyros go off behind him.
Hunter slides in underneath the bottom rope as he puts his hands on the top rope and glares menacingly into the camera. He is cascaded by boos as the intensity in this face is shown to the world. Pyros go off in the background as his glare is never changing. The boos continue.
Zach Davis: If Hunter Valentyne wins this, he will have to face his friend Johnny Stylez for the Internet title.
Shannan Lerch: You know, I think that would be a hell of a contest. Two members of the now-defunct Business squaring off.
All of the lights in the arena dim simultaneously... Next, a massive pulsing light pierces through the vicinity as a barrage of pyrotechnics erupt. Smoke pours from the stage in the midst of various colors & hues. "Riot" by 2 Chainz pumps from the speakers as "The Dare Devil" Jonathan Jakobs emerges from behind the curtains. He briefly stops and places his right fist in the air, the crowd screams in pure euphoria. Jonathan strides down to the ring as he exchanges high-fives with a few of the fans. He climbs the steps & enters the ring. He stands in the corner and awaits his opponents.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the Dare Devil, hot off two back to back wins.
Zach Davis: Last week he unveiled his alliance with Eric Price, that's gonna be interesting.
"Rocket Skates" by Deftones plays as "GEKIDO" Jay Williams sprints towards the ring, joining the other two men.
Shannan Lerch: Jay Williams, love him or hate him, is a great competitor. And former World Champion, to boot.
Zach Davis: No doubt about that, very dangerous man.
All three men each take up a corner of the ring.
DING DING DING
Shannan Lerch: Alright, here we go!
Zach Davis: Hunter and Williams locking up first, with Jakobs hanging back.
Valentyne takes GEKIDO down with a Russian leg sweep. As Valentyne gets up, Jakobs is right there with a dropkick, sending him tumbling over GEKIDO and back to the mat. Jakobs climbs to the top turnbuckle...
Shannan Lerch: Jakobs tries a crossbody but GEKIDO catches him and turns it into a bodyslam.
Zach Davis: GEKIDO standing tall, stomping both men as they both try to get to their feet.
Jakobs and Valentyne manage to get to their feet, and they each grab one of GEKIDO's arms and whip him to the ropes. They catch GEKIDO with a double clothesline, sending him to the mat.
Shannan Lerch: That was actually good teamwork by Hunter and Jonathan.
Zach Davis: Well that's what happens when you're both getting kicked in the head by the same guy.
Valentyne and Jakobs lock up. Valentyne gets to the rear of Jakobs, and hits a German suplex.
Shannan Lerch: So much for teamwork.
Valentyne turns around and GEKIDO is on his feet, right behind him. GEKIDO starts chopping at Valentyne's chest. He whips Valentyne into the corner and continues chopping and jabbing at his head and body.
Zach Davis: Jakobs back to his feet, holding his back, still feeling that German suplex.
Shannan Lerch: GEKIDO better turn around--
As GEKIDO turns around, Jakobs bounces off the rope.
Zach Davis: Tornado DDT by Jakobs!
Jakobs quickly gets back to his feet, and the fans begin booing. GEKIDO and Valentyne are both starting to stir on the mat.
Shannan Lerch: Now Jakobs is just watching while Hunter Valentyne and Jay Williams trade punches as they get back to their feet.
Valentyne and GEKIDO lock up. Jakobs runs to the ropes--
Zach Davis: Big splash by Jonathan Jakobs!
Shannan Lerch: He took all three men including himself over the top rope!
Jakobs is the first one to his feet. Valentyne rolls back into the ring, as Jakobs grabs GEKIDO. The ref starts the count.
As Jakobs tries to raise GEKIDO, GEKIDO hits him with a few shots to the inside of the leg. Jakobs doubles over...
Zach Davis: Gutbuster by GEKIDO, right on the arena floor!
GEKIDO climbs back into the ring.
GEKIDO and Valentyne trade blows, as Jakobs gets to his feet outside the ring.
Jakobs returns to the ring. GEKIDO and Valentyne are still going at it, Valentyne whips GEKIDO into the corner and starts a boot choke.
Shannan Lerch: Jakobs is taking this opportunity to recover as Hunter and Williams go at it.
Valentyne releases the boot choke and GEKIDO collapses in the corner. Valentyne lifts him up and...
Zach Davis: Gut wrench suplex by Hunter Valentyne. The cover...
Shannan Lerch: GEKIDO Jay Williams kicks out!
Zach Davis: Jakobs is doing a good job keeping his distance and letting these guys destroy each other.
Valentyne lifts up GEKIDO again and whips him to the ropes. This time, GEKIDO ducks a clothesline, and counters with a running flying front kick.
Shannan Lerch: What a kick by GEKIDO. The pin...
Zach Davis: KICKOUT by Hunter Valentyne.
With Valentyne still on the mat, Jakobs comes from what seems like out of nowhere, off the top rope with a diving headbutt...
Shannan Lerch: Valentyne rolls out of the way!
As Valentyne gets back to his feet, GEKIDO charges at him, but Valentyne ducks and sends GEKIDO over the top rope to the outside. He lifts up Jakobs and...
Zach Davis: VALENTYME! Devastating! The pin!
DING DING DING
Shannan Lerch: Hunter Valentyne picks up the victory tonight!
"Something in Your Mouth" by Nickelback plays over the PA as Valentyne raises his arms in victory.
Zach Davis: Big win for Valentyne, who will now go on to face his friend and associate, Johnny Stylez next Sunday at Blast.
Shannan Lerch: That's right with the Internet title on the line, two friends battling it out, should be interesting.
Kyle Steel: Our next bout is a Contender matchup for the WCF Peoples Championship currently help by Kid Phantasm. Featuring first, hailing from Grant, Iowa. Standing 6'6" and weighing in at 270 pounds he is 'The Scoutmaster' Stuart Slane!
The crowd is a mixture of cheers and boos as “Follow Me, Boys!” plays on the Jumbo-Tron. Stu marches out from the back, silently mouthing the lyrics to his theme as he heads down the ramp. He does a circuit around the outside of the ring before climbing the steps and entering. After some last minute old timey calisthenics (Indian twists, deep knee bends, etc) The Scoutmaster goes to his corner. He hands his hat and sash off to a WCF stagehand and assumes a fighting position.
Kyle Steel: Introducing next, He hails from Chicago, Illinois. Standing 6'3" and tipping the scales at 250 pounds. Please welcome Hank 'Thunder' Lane!
The crowd cheers wildly as 'Riding The Storm Out' by REO Speedwagon begins playing on the Jumbo-Tron. Hank 'Thunder' Lane makes his way towards the ring. He is wearing a long Blue Satin robe with Thunder on the back of it in Diamonds. As he passes by the announcers table he grabs a mic from Shannan Lerch and takes it into the ring with him. Stuart Slane watches intently as Hank Lane begins to speak.
Hank 'Thunder' Lane: I hope every one of you worthless, Out of shape losers out there appreciate the fact that I showed up today to give every one of you an opportunity to see my great body! All of you unemployed, Fat Slobs out there, Here is what a REAL man looks like!
Hank 'Thunder' Lane begins removing his robe and is about to hand it down to the stagehand when he is attacked from behind by Slane. Slane pounds him with a flurry of haymakers. The bell rings and the match is officially underway.
Shannan Lerch: The Scoutmaster didn't even bother waiting for the bell to ring before going after Thunder.
Zach Davis: I guess he didn't like what Lane had to say. This is a matchup featuring two midwestern competitors. Slane has the height advantage and a slight weight advantage over Lane here and he is making the most of it in the early going.
Inside the ring Scoutmaster whips Thunder into the ropes and catches him with a Hurricane Mixer. Thunder hits the mat with a thud as Slane goes for an early pin attempt. The referee slides into position and begins to count.
No, Lane kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: A little early to go for a pin attempt. Slane should have known better.
Zach Davis: Looks like he was trying to catch Thunder sleeping. I think it was a good move!
Back inside the ring Stuart Slane picks up Hank Lane knocks him right back down with a short arm clothesline. Slane climbs up to the second rope and waits while Lane begins getting to his feet. Lane turns around looking for his opponent and gets hit with a flying cross body. Lane goes down once more but is able to get back to his feet before Slane can attempt a pin.
Shannan Lerch: Is it me or does Hank look a little sluggish this week?
Zach Davis: He sure does, Are you sure you didn't keep him up all night last night?
Shannan Lerch: No, But I wish I did!
Zach Davis: Oh, I'm sure you do! I don't think he has eyes for YOU though.
Meanwhile, Inside the ring The Scoutmaster leans down to pick up Thunder after hitting him with a scoop Slam and gets hit with a low blow to the groin area. The ref warns Lane about low blows but Lane denies the incident. Lane catches the Scoutmaster with a kick to the midsection and follows through with an uppercut that sends Slane reeling backwards. Lane seizes the opportunity and connects with a clothesline that sends the Scoutmaster down to the mat. Lane stomps on him before picking him up by his head and hitting him with a DDT! Lane quickly climbs to the top rope and waits as Slane gets to his feet. Lane jumps and connects with a dropkick that drops Slane to the mat. Instead of going for the pin Lane picks up Slane and whips him into the corner with a thud! Lane goes running in at full speed and hits nothing but the corner as Slane is able to duck and roll out of the ring. Lanes momentum carries him over the rope and onto the arena floor. Both men are down as the ref begins counting them out.
The Scoutmaster gets to his feet first and walks over to where Thunder is at. Slane picks him up and drops him over the steel barrier around the ring area.
Slane slides under the ropes to break the count and goes right back out after Thunder. Slane picks up Lane and throws him into the steel post holding up the ring. Lane is busted open, The blood begins flowing from the wound in his forehead. Slane once again picks up Lane and rolls him into the ring. Slane follows him in, Picks him up and hits Lane with a Hangman's Neckbreaker. Slane goes for the pin as the ref counts.
No! Hank Lane is able to get the shoulder up just before the refs hand hits the mat for the third time. The Scoutmaster slams his hand on the mat three times quickly to insinuate a slow count.
Zach Davis: The Scoutmaster appears to be getting frustrated out there. He has taken the fight to Thunder yet somehow Thunder seems to be hanging on.
Shannan Lerch: Why did Slane have to bust his face open like that? Don't ruin his good looks!
Zach Davis: It's okay, Shannan. It's only the forehead. Nothing a few stitches won't take care of!
Slane stomps on the forehead of Thunder causing it to bleed even more. Lane Pounds his fist into the mat and begins to get up. Slane, Attempting to keep Lane down continues kicking him in the head. Lane continues to get up and makes it to his feet. Slane attempts to kick him in the midsection. Lane catches his leg and drops down on top of it slamming all of his weight onto the knee. Slane screams out in obvious pain. Lane begins with a few of his own stomps onto the knee of Slane. Lane picks up the Scoutmaster and hits him with a vertical suplex. Once again Lane picks him up and this time catches him with a piledriver. The ref moves in to go for the count only Lane waves him off and picks up Slane once more and throws him over the top rope to the floor below. Slane makes it to his feet near the announcers table. He doesn't see as Lane has climbed to the top rope. He turns towards the ring just in time to get hit with a cross body that carries them both onto and through the announcers table.
Shannan Lerch: You talk about being up close and personal, We just lost our table here. These two are going at it hot and heavy right in front of us.
Zach Davis: Now BOTH men are busted open as a cut has begun bleeding above the Scoutmasters left eye.
The two men continue trading blows with Lane getting the upper hand. lane throws the Scoutmaster back into the ring and climbs in behind him. As the Scoutmaster turns to face him Lane hits him with a Belly to Belly Slam. Hank 'Thunder' Lane points to the top turnbuckle as he picks up Slane and climbs with him to the top rope. Lane lifts him up in a vertical suplex and slams him to the mat. Lane times it perfectly and jumps just as Slane hits the mat and connects with a powerful frog splash.
Shannan Lerch: Lane has connected with the Stormy Night. This could be all folks as the referee is in perfect position and goes for the count.
No, Slane has kicked out of the Stormy Night. Thunder is furious as he stands up and gets right in the refs face. He doesn't notice as the Scoutmaster gets to his feet and sneaks up behind Thunder. Slane grabs him and hits him with a back body drop. Slane moves in and grabs Lane, Putting him into an inverted Cloverleaf hold.
Zach Davis: This could be it right here! That's the Knotted Up move. I don't think that Thunder is going to get out of this one.
Shannan Lerch: Come on, Thunder!
The ref asks lane if he wants to give a few times. Thunder repeatedly shakes his head until he gets to the point where he can just not take the pain anymore. He taps out as the Referee calls for the bell.
Kyle Steel: Your winner, Stuart 'Scoutmaster' Slane.
~*~ 4:19 ~*~
Cold by Crossfade plays over the loud speaker as out struts the Paragona of Americana , LA Johnny Stylez. Stylez moves with the rhythm of the music while yelling at the crowd. Naturally Stylez is met with a course of boos so loud that it almost shakes the arena. Stylez is dressed in a pair of baggy cargo pants and he is wearing a P.o.P T-shirt Outsiderâ€™s style. On the front of the shirt is P.o.P in white bold letters with (Players of Perfection) written in captions. Stylez is wearing a pair of silver oakleys and he has a cigarette hanging from his lips. After dancing to his music and taunting the fans, Stylez makes his way down the ramp.
-What I Really Meant To Say-
Stylez arrogantly struts to the ring, stopping to blow smoke in the face of a few fans sitting front row. Stylez then puts his cigarette out, and slides in the ring on his stomach. He then shoots up and immeadily begins talking trash to the fans, who are letting him have it. Stylez walks up to the ring announcer and playfully slaps them over the head a few times, before walking over to the turnbuckle and laying across it pretending to fall asleep as he awaits his opponent and or the bell.
Tommy Kain makes his way down to the ring with a signature bottle of Evan Williams (Because Jack Daniels is for rednecks.) He gives the crowd a smirk that just screams, "Damn I know I'm better than you." Finally making his way to the ring, sliding under the bottom rope and sitting in one of the corners taking a drink or two from his pre-match bottle of booze.
Zach Davis: Those two make a fantastic team, that's for sure.
"Paradigm Shift" by Liquid Tension Experiment hits. The crowd erupts as Jeff Purse and Kid Phantasm step out from the back.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes Kid Purse and Jeff Phantasm!
Zach Davis: What, Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: Just seeing if you were paying attention.
Purse heads to the ring, looking all business. Kid is a few steps behind him, though looking, understandably, a bit less focused.
Zach Davis: Seth revealed earlier that he has information on Nightmare's whereabouts. Of course, all Kid cares about is getting her back and I doubt he wants to get involved with the Darkside of Treachery right about now, but he may not have a choice if he can't find any other leads short of kidnapping NvL.
Purse starts the match for his team, Stylez for his. The two men circle each other and tie up.
Shannan Lerch: Internet Champion squaring off against the US Champ here.
Purse gets the upper hand, forcing Stylez into the corner. Purse provides a clean break, but Stylez slaps him and calls him a pussy. Incredulous, Purse goes for a stiff Clothesline, but Stylez ducks it and lifts Purse up into a DVD!
Zach Davis: Big move coming up!
But no!, Purse slips behind Stylez and shoves him into the ropes. Stylez hits them, bounces backwards, Purse clubs him in the back with a forearm, then takes him down with a Neck Breaker. Purse stands and starts stomping away at the Internet Champion. He then runs to the ropes and hits a Springboard Moonsault!, into a pin.
Kain enters the ring and breaks it up just ast Stylez was getting his shoulder up. Kain and Stylez quickly lift Purse up and hit a Double Suplex. Phantasm enters the ring and runs at Stylez, Clotheslining him and sending both men spilling over the top rope to the floor!
Shannan Lerch: After that double team move, the team of Kain and Stylez are in the driver's seat here! Stylez should still be the legal man but I'm pretty sure the ref is too incompetent to care, so I guess Kain is in now.
Kain stands up and shakes the cobwebs off. He backs up and as Purse is getting to his feet, he runs at him and hits a Shining Wizard!
Zach Davis: He calls that the Kneeing White Intoxicated!, oy.
Purse collapses down to the mat and Kain pins him.
No, Purse kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: Close! But no cigar. Jeff Purse has proven time and time again that he is not an easy man to beat.
Zach Davis: And speaking of Nightmare, Purse will face the man that kidnapped her, Nathan von Liebert, one week from now at Blast, for the US Title.
Kain kicks at Purse a few times before climbing out onto the apron. He then jumps up..
Shannan Lerch: Oh my!
And hits a Springboard Shooting Star Press!
Zach Davis: The Morning After!
...but Purse gets his knees up! Kain crashes into them and immediately rolls off, clutching his stomach in pain. Purse, sensing an opportunity, stumbles to his feet and grabs Kain as he stumbles up too and executes a big Belly to Belly Suplex. Phantasm has returned to his corner, so Purse dives and tags in Kid!
Shannan Lerch: Here we go!
As Kid enters the ring, Kain tags in Stylez!
Zach Davis: And now, the People meet the Internet! If those two belts merged, they'd basically be the Pornography Championship.
Stylez and Phantasm meet in the middle of the ring and begin brawling. Stylez gets the upper hand and throws Phantasm to the ropes before hitting a Spinebuster as Phantasm comes back!
Shannan Lerch: Kid Phantasm, slammed to the mat!
Stylez immediately puts Kid into a Camel Clutch.
Zach Davis: I hate to say it, but this whole Nightmare situation is clearly eating at Kid. He's not himself tonight. And if Seth knows where she is, I don't believe he's not working to get her back. Especially after how Seth was busted out of jail... how ingrateful.
Eventually, once Stylez realizes that Kid won't tap out, he releases the Clutch. He backs up and steps forward, dropping a leg on Kid and staying down for the pin.
No, Kid easily kicks out. Stylez gets up takes a few steps back, waiting for Phantasm to get to his feet... and goes for a Superkick! But Phantasm ducks it and grabs Stylez into the Pumphandle position and hits a Pumphandle Powerbomb into pin!
NO! Stylez kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: Kid surprised Stylez there, that was almost it!
Phantasm gets up and pulls Stylez up with him but Stylez hits him with a Low Blow.
Shannan Lerch: Not like Kid has gotten to use his dick much nowadays, anyway.
Zach Davis: SHANNAN!
This gives Stylez the opportunty to tag Kain back in. Kain lifts Kid Phantasm up and hits a TKO!
Shannan Lerch: Partycrasher!
Tommy Kain pins Kid, hooking the leg.
No, Purse makes the save! He kicks Kain a few times, disregarding the rules, until Stylez enters the ring. Stylez runs at Purse, who hits a Back Bodydrop, sending Stylez flying out of the ring. Purse helps Kid up.
Shannan Lerch: They're CHEATING!
Zach Davis: Eh, the cheating started with that low blow from Stylez, I'd say.
Phantasm slides out onto the apron as Jeff runs... Phantasm hits an Over the Rope Leg Drop onto Kain as Purse connects with a Rolling Thunder!
Shannan Lerch: And look at that! Cryogenic Shock!
Phantasm pins Kain, hooking the leg, as Purse leaves.
Zach Davis: What a match! Kain kicks out!
Phantasm picks Kain up and throws him to the corner, but Styles tags himself in. Stylez Springboards over the top rope as Phantasm runs at Kain, and Clotheslines Phantasm. Kid stumbles back into his corner, and Purse tags himself in.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the United States Champion!
Purse comes in and runs at Stylez, Clotheslining him down. Stylez stumbles up and Purse throws him to the ropes. Phantasm gets in position in time and lifts Stylez up, and Purse brings him down!
Zach Davis: The Fourth Dimension!
Purse drops and pins Stylez, hooking the leg.
Shannan Lerch: The Future Elements pick up the victory here tonight!
Purse and Phantasm stand, with the referee raising their arms... until NvL's music hits.
Zach Davis: Uh oh.
Nathan von Liebert walks out onto the stage to a chorus of booing. He has a mic in hand. Kid Phantasm goes to run and attack him immediately, but Purse grabs him, pulling him back, trying to get him to calm down and listen to what Nathan has to say.
Nathan von Liebert: Congratulations, Elements. Bravo.
The fans boo Nathan's sarcasm.
Nathan von Liebert: Jeff, this was your last match as United States Champion. Enjoy it. And Kid Phantasm? This was YOUR last match thinking that you have ANY chance of getting Nightmare back.
The fans boo even louder now.
Nathan von Liebert: Kid, it was an awkward talk but I spoke to Seth Lerch earlier. As the People's Champion, you're stuck. You got booked against a challenger for your belt instead of me, and I'm sure you want to rip my head off. Which is why your buddy Purse here is going to attempt to do your dirtywork.
Nathan von Liebert: So good luck against the Scoutmaster. But anyway, Kid, no matter what Seth says, you're not getting Nightmare back. Unless....
NvL scratches his chin sarcastically.
Nathan von Liebert: I'm feeling generous tonight. How about this? Purse, if you can manage to retain your US Title at Blast and beat me... Monsters, Inc. will return Nightmare. Maybe not safe, and maybe not sound, but we'll return her.
Kid slaps Jeff on the back, as if to say, "You've got this!" Purse nods.
Jeff Purse: Nathan... YOU'VE GOT IT!
The crowd cheers like crazy.
Nathan von Liebert: Purse, I beat you back at One in the One Invitational Tournament, and I'll beat you at Blast! Kiss your Title, and kiss your Nightmare, goodbye!
NvL's music plays as he leaves, with Phantasm hyping up Jeff Purse.
Zach Davis: Holy shit. Blast's US Title match just got a lot more interesting.
Shannan Lerch: Winner takes all, Jeff Purse versus Nathan von Liebert!
We go to commercial as NvL does last minute preperation for his upcoming match.
Back from commercial and NvL and Young are in the ring. They tie up.
Zach Davis: Big matchup tonight, but we're one week away from Young's biggest match of his career, his long awaited bout with Corey Black.
Shannan Lerch: He takes a lot of pride in being the one to force Corey to return to the WCF earlier that originally intended, and win lose or draw, Corey can't take that away from him.
Young gets the advantage and forces NvL to the corner, and pretends to give him the clean break before kicking him in the gut. NvL doubles over and Young then backs up and goes for a Superkick!, but NvL ducks it and spins Young around, hitting a Snap DDT!
Zach Davis: Ouch! Vicious move.
NvL then places his one foot on Young's neck as he's face down.
Shannan Lerch: The Choker, after that DDT... Young's neck has to be hurting!
After several moments NvL releases it. Young immediately rolls out of the ring and grabs a mic.
Adam Young: Nathan, you have attempted to seriously injure me and break my neck! My match against Corey Black next week is too important to jeopardize in this match!
Young drops the mic and begins walking to the back. NvL storms around the ring, pissed, as the ref is forced to count Adam out. Adam grins as he disappears behind the curtain.
Zach Davis: Well... Nathan wins via countout. Not the result he was looking for.
Kira's music plays and as he steps out, he's attacked from Famine from behind!
Shannan Lerch: What the.. !
Famine clubs Kira in the back a few times as the crowd boos. Both men head to the ring. Famine rolls Kira in and begins stomping on him mercilessly. He begins to lift Kira up but Kira rolls him up out of nowhere!
Zach Davis: What the.. !
Shannan Lerch: Kira with the surprise victory with a rollup! He caught Famine off guard!
With a result like this, Kira quickly rushed out to go back to apartment but in the ramp.....
Zach Davis: What's going on?!
Shannan Lerch: What the blue Hell?!
At this time, all of the arena. Both Zach and Shannan. Even Famine of the Vile from inside the ring, is looking up at the Mega tron screen, near the entrance ramp stage. Famine look smiles because finally the plan has been worked.
Zach Davis: Are you kidding me?! The damn giant screen broken again?!
Shannan Lerch: No, I don't think so. The screen had been working all night.
As everyone is looking up, at the screen. Even some of the other wrestlers, from the back, are looking at their monitors. Everyone sees the screen go from static to an Apartment complex.
Kira Sakazaki: THAT'S MY APARTMENT!!!
Zach Davis: Is this happening now?!
Shannan Lerch: Did Kira Sakazaki just say that was HIS apartment?! What's going on there?!
As the crowd is at a standstill and with a complete hush, a camera crew slowly walks towards the apartment of Kira Sakazaki. The apartment door had been bashed in.
Crowd member: Oh my God.
Kira Sakazaki: Oh my God, Torigoya!!
The crowd is slowly murmuring.
Zach Davis: Kira Sakazaki's apartment door had been kicked in!!
Shannan Lerch: This is not good, Zach.
As the camera crew slowly walks into the apartment, the camera shows the apartment door had been ripped off the hinges. The apartment is in shambles. The camera crew walks into the apartment. The living room is in complete disarray. The television had been knocked down and it is broken. The furniture is turned over. The couch cushions have been ripped open and the stuffing from the cushions is everywhere, like fluffy confetti. The camera looks down and it shows...
Zach Davis: IS THAT BLOOD?!
Kira Sakazaki: HA-A-ARUNA-A-A!!!!
The crowd gasps. The camera crew continues to look around the torn up apartment. Kira slumped on his knees.
The cameraman: There are no signs of anyone here!!
Shannan Lerch: I believe Kira Sakazaki's sister, Haruna WAS supposed to be in there!
As the camera crew slowly goes into the bedroom. There is an aroma, a scent in the room..... A SCENT OF A WOMAN.
The cameraman: It smells like someone had sex in here.
There is a trail of small droplets of blood coming from the bedroom and leads into the living room. The bedroom is in shambles and the bed looks as if there had been a struggle on it. The sheets are completely off the bed.
Zach Davis: OH MY... GOD!
The camera shows tears, more like rips into the mattress.
Shannan Lerch: Oh my God, there are slashes on the bed's mattress.
Kira Sakazaki: NOO-O-O-O!!!!
There are ropes tied to the bed posts...
Zach Davis: What had happened in there?! My God!
Kira Sakazaki: STOP IT~~!!! PLEASE STOP IT~~!!
We can see tears flowing on Kira's eyes, he wants to get up but Kira just simply petrified by looking at that scene. On the head board is a note, with a 13" long serrated hunting knife that is holding the note onto the head board.
Shannan Lerch: Oh my God. There's a note! It's written... No-o-o!! It's written in blood!!
The crowd gasps, as the majority, of the crowd remains quiet and calm.
The note says...
KIRA!! IT HAS YOUR SISTER!! NOW, WE HAVE TWO LOVELIES WITH US... NIGHTMARE AND HARUNA!!
Kira Sakazaki: H-H-H-HARUNA!! DAME DA (DON'T DO THAT)!!!
NO WORRIES, KIRA. YOUR SISTER HAS GREAT SPIRIT!! SHE PUT UP A GREAT FIGHT!! WORKED UP A GREAT APPETITE!! OBLIVION STILL GOT WHAT IT WANTED!!
Kira Sakazaki: ..........
Kira scared to death by looking at these messages.
KIRA!! SAY GOODBYE TO HARUNA!!
Zach Davis: No-o.
Shannan Lerch: NO!! NO!! NO!!
HARUNA WILL BE OBLIVION'S FOREVER!! KID PHANTASM?! WHERE EVER YOU ARE... NIGHTMARE IS WITH OBLIVION FOREVER, AS WELL!!!
Then a quick camera shot, to the right, shows Nightmare and Haruna tied up and gagged, with tear filled wide open eyes, completely filled with fear. Their wide opened makeup smeared eyes shows complete insanity... SCARED TO DEATH!! Then from the right side, of the screen, Oblivion slowly comes in and grabs Haruna by the hair and begins to nibble her neck. Haruna's eyes begin to roll back, as a small trickle of blood begins to roll down her neck. Haruna gives out a small sigh and a sultry cry. Oblivion whispers in Haruna's left ear...
Oblivion: You're my always forever girl.
Oblivion goes on to pull down the gag from Haruna's mouth. The Monster nibbles Haruna's bottom lip. Haruna doesn't resist and she reciprocates back, by nibbling Oblivion's bottom lip. Haruna asking for help while moaning.
Haruna Sakazaki: A-a-a-aniki..... Tasu......kete...... (Brother, Help me)!!!!
Zach Davis: What the Hell?!
Oblivion quickly disappears. Then from the left side, of the camera screen, Oblivion pops up and approaches towards Nightmare, who completely resists. Oblivion whispers in Nightmare's right ear....
Oblivion: No worries, Nightmare, Oblivion didn't forget you...
Oblivion grabs Nightmare hair and proceeds to nibble HER neck. Nightmare tries to fight back. With her right hand, Haruna grabs Nightmare's left hand. Haruna slowly nods her head at Nightmare. With the gag in her mouth, Haruna mouths out the words... IT'S OKAY. Oblivion continues to nibble and lick on Nightmare's neck, who eventually relaxes. Nightmare's eyes roll back. Oblivion moves and stands in front of the Pet, who has been holding the camera. IT dips down and says into the camera....
Oblivion: This is not for anyone's viewing...
Right as Oblivion approaches The Pet, the camera sees The Vixens in the room. The Vixens are creeping slowly towards Haruna and Nightmare. The two tied up girls, don't see The Vixens approach them, from behind. The Vixens get close to the camera. They begin to moan and right as Oblivion places IT's hand over the lens, the camera shows the eyes of The Vixens. Their eyes are pasty white.
In the arena, Kira completely shows his anger. He punches the ramp floor.
Kira Sakazaki: CHIKUSOU (DAMN IT)!!!!
Kira gets up and running outside the arena.
Zach Davis: Oh my God, Kira Sakazaki is going completely crazy, in there.
Shannan Lerch: Imagine what's Kid Phantasm is doing right now.
Zach Davis: But, doesn't Oblivion have a match later on tonight?!
Shannan Lerch: Who said that feed was live?!
Zach Davis: Oh my God. You could be right!! Oblivion could of taped that earlier. I'm totally creeped out right now!!
Shannan Lerch: I know!! Me too!! Oh my God, Zach!! Did you see their eyes?!? Haruna and Nightmare were tied up and gagged!!
Zach Davis: Kira Sakazaki is going completely crazy!!
Zach Davis: Okay, y'all. It's time for one of the most anticipated match-ups, of the night!!
Shannan Lerch: You're absoultely right, Zach!!
Zach Davis: I am?!
Shannan Lerch: Easy there, Zach. Don't get a big head there. Everyone gets one right, once in a while!
Zach Davis: Whatever, hater.
Shannan Lerch: These two men have history. They are on rival stables. DoT attacked a few people, some time ago and Oblivion was one of them. Oblivion has DoT on IT's demented mind. Now, if Oblivion gets an opportunity, The Monster WILL take it!! Especially after what we just saw, ick....
Zach Davis: WCF Senior Referee Stanley Moser is already in the ring. Let's get this match-up started...
The lights turn to a blood red as the crowd stands up on their feet, as the electronic beats of "Ghosts 'n Stuff" plays over the P.A. Out the curtains comes Mr. FPV, signature duster and everything.
Zach Davis: Here comes FPV!! He looks really determined!!
Kyle Steel: From Atlanta, Georgia... Weighing in at 205 pounds. This is "Franky The Boudle Slayer" F..... P..... V.....!!!
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion has an half foot height advantage and an 100 pound plus weight difference. Oblivion has the size on IT's side!!
He plays to the excited crowd like the circus ringmaster, fistbumping furiously along with the crowd and the music, and each fistbump triggers an explosion of black pyro from the stage.
Shannan Lerch: Even with this new determination, he still has time for the fans.
FPV takes the walk down the ramp, slapping fans hands before climbing the steps and on top of the turnbuckles, where he fistbumps one more time, sending one more explosion of pyro throughout the arena. He climbs into the ring and sits in a lotuc position in the corner, waiting for the match to start.
Zach Davis: Now, all we need now is....
Pyro explodes around The WCF Arena!! The lights go out. Oblivion by Mastodon begins to play, as the thunderous combination of the guitars, bass, and drums explode through the arena's speakers.
I flew beyond the sun before it was time
Falling from grace cause I've been away too long
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 Wells Fargo 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. The guitar solo begins, lazers flash throughout the arena. Thunder-like sounds rattle the arena, as lighting strike-like sounds shake the foundation of The Wells Fargo 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 Vixen are thrashing with the music. Their energy has the Coliseum going completely crazy!
Oblivion slowly stands up, with it's arms extended outward, spins around. Oblivion, The Vixen, and The Gathering get to ringside. As IT pops IT's neck, Oblivion 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, tormenting 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. 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.
NOW I'M LOST IN OBLIVION!!!
Oblivion doesn't waste anytime by charging at FPV.
Zach Davis: Oblivion's a madman!! IT's going directly right after FPV!!
Shannan Lerch: But, FPV moves out of the way...
The crowd goes completely insane!!
Zach Davis: Is Frank Venable nuts?!? He just slapped Oblivion on the face!!
Oblivion touches the left side of IT's face and then slowly looks at FPV.
Zach Davis: FRANK RUUU-U-UNNN-NN!!
FPV flexes his muscles, right as Oblivion lunges at him.
Shannan Lerch: And the chase is on!!
Frank Venable begins to run and Oblivion begins to chase him. They exit the ring. Oblivion chases FPV, as they pass the announce team's table. As they pass some of the crowd, once the make the turn around the ring, Frank slap some of the fans' hands. FPV enters the ring first and bolts towards the far ropes. Oblivion enters the ring and chases after Frank, who bounces off the ropes.
Zach Davis: FPV drops down and The Monster bounces over him. Franklin Venable gets back up and bounces off the ropes. Oblivion bounces off the ropes, as well...
Shannan Lerch: FPV just nailed Oblivion with a spinning heel kick!
That kick knocks down Oblivion. FPV takes the chance and pounces onto The Dark One and proceeds to thrust multiple haymakers across Oblivion face and skull.
Oblivion roars out and pushes FPV off. Frank flies off almost a couple of feet into the air and a couple of feet away. FPB quickly stands up as well does Oblivion. Frank kicks and punches at Oblivion. FPV attempts to grab Oblivion behind the neck...
Zach Davis: Looks like as if FPV is going to attempt the double knee gutbuster....
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion just clobbered FPB with a massive right fist to the head of The Boudle Killer.
Oblivion grabs FPV and nails him with a knee to the gut. Frank grabs his mid-section as he bends over....
Zach Davis: Oblivion with a massive elbow to the back, of the neck!!
FPV falls down to the mat and Oblivion drops a couple of heave quick elbows.
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion is going for a quick pin attempt!!
Stanley Moser slides into position and makes the count...
Zach Davis: Not even a one count.
Oblivion grabs FPV in a reverse chin lock.
Shannan Lerch: The Monster looks as if, IT has that chin lock on real tight!
FPV quickly moves around, trying to figure out to get out of that chin lock.
Zach Davis: FPV is wasting a lot of energy, just trying to get out of that maneuver!
Oblivion takes IT's massive left forearm and clubs it down across the chest of FPV!!
Oblivion takes two fingers from IT's left hand and sticks them up the nose of FPV. Oblivion begins to yank up on the nose.
Stanley Moser: That's it... ONE!! TWO!!
Oblivion maintains the reverse chin lock, but let's go of the nose. Oblivion gets up onto IT's knees, picking up FPV, in the process...
Zach Davis: A picture perfect belly to belly suplex by The Monster!!
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion goes for another pin attempt!!
Crowd: TW- No-o-o.
Zach Davis: FPV kicks out.
Oblivion stands up. The Monster grabs for IT's opponent.... The crowd cheers!
Shannan Lerch: SMALL PACKAGE!!
Stanley Moser slides into postion...
Crowd: THREE-E.... NO-O-O-O!!
Oblivion goes into a rage, as IT jumps up. But, so does FPV....
Shannan Lerch: DOUBLE KNEE GUTBUSTER!!
Without any hesitation, Frank rolls over Oblivion...
Zach Davis: STF!!
Immediately Oblivion screams out in pain!
Shannan Lerch: FPV has the STF sinched right in the center, of the ring!!
Zach Davis: Oblivion tries to reach out, but there are no ropes even near The Monster.
FPV: TAP, YOU BITCH!! TAAA-A-APP-P-P!!
Frank wrenches the STF, but...
Shannan Lerch: What's is that crazy sumbitch doing?!
One centimeter at a time, Oblivion uses IT's nasty fingernails and slowly scratches towards the ring ropes. The crowd immediately begins to cheer out encouragement!!
Crowd: OBLIVION!!<clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!> OBLIVION!!<clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!> OBLIVION!!<clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!>
Slowly Oblivion gets closer to the ropes and the crowd is amazed and in a complete frenzy!!
Zach Davis: Shannan !! I can barely here myself think, over this crowd's amazing screaming cheers!!
Shannan Lerch: Zach!? You can think?!
Zach Davis: No, I'm serious!! The crowd is going crazy!!
The crowd roars out, as the rook of The WCF Arena nearly pops off!!
Shannan Lerch: I don't believe it!! I don't fu<bleep>kin' believe it!! Oblivion amde it to the ropes!!
At that time, FPV stands up and grabs the top rope and proceeds to stomp down onto The God of Insanity! The crowd continues to be ina frenzy. Oblivion begins to to slowly stand up.
Zach Davis: Uh-oh!! The Monster is pissed!!
As Frank continues to to stomp down and throwd quick fists, Oblivion rises up with a look of extreme anger across IT's hideous face! Oblivion grabs FPV and screams with furious anger, almost blowing The Boudle Killer's hair backwards.
Oblivion slams IT's meaty fist against the left side of FPV's skull. FPV falss down to mat, but scramble backwards towards the turnbuckles. Oblivion looks down at FPV and smiles.
Shannan Lerch: UH-OH!!
Oblivion slams it meavy right thigh-knee against the upper chest and head area of FPV against the bottom and middle turnbuckles.
Zach Davis: Oblivion is going completely bezerk on Frank Patrick Venable!!
Shannan Lerch: Now, Oblivion is gnawwing on FPV's forehead!!
Zach Davis: What did Oblivion just spit out.
Shannan Lerch: It looked like a chunk of FPV's forehead.
Oblivion continues to pound down of FPV. The referee gets involved. Staney Moser tries to get in between Oblivion and FPV!!
Stanley Moser: That's it, Oblivion!! Back it up!! ONE!! TWO!! Give the man an opportunity to get up!!
Oblivion: FUCK THAT!!
Oblivion goes in to choke FPV, by the throar. Oblivion has a sadistic look across IT's face. The Monster sticks out IT's nasty tongue!
Zach Davis: I think FPV is turning blue!!
Oblivion: DIE FRANKY DIE!!
A frustrated Stanley Moser goes to Oblivion and is physically trying to IT off of Frank Venable.
Stanley Moser: I SAID get off of him!!
The referee pulls Oblivion off of FPV. The Boudle Killer coughs, once he received the opportunity to. Oblivion walks away from the corner to stomp towards the referee and stare him down.
Shannan Lerch: FPV is slowly standing, using the ropes, behind him.
Oblivion turns around and quickly approaches IT's hated opponent...

Shannan Lerch: DDT FROM THE SECOND RING ROPE!!
FPV runs towards the corner.
Zach Davis: What's Frank doing?! He had Oblivion down!
Shannan Lerch: Franklin Patrick Venable is neccessarily a high flyer. He's built for it, tho. So, who knows.
FPV goes up to the top turnbuckle. The crowd is cheering...
Crowd: FPV!! OBLIVION!! FPV!! OBLIVION!! FPV!! OBLIVION!!
Zach Davis: The crowd is defiantly devided tonight!!

FPV is rolling around grabbing his mid-section!
Shannan Lerch: WHAT THE HELL?!
The crowd goes crazy!! The WCF rattles with ear-shattering cheers. OBLIVION SITS UP!!
Zach Davis: What the Hell?!?
Shannan Lerch: That's what I said!! What the Hell?!? Oblivion just sat up from THAT frog splash. FPV usually doesn't use a frog splash in his move set. But that's FPV, always brings something different each time, he is in the ring!!
As FPV continues to grabs his mid-section, Oblivion quickly gets up and goes over to FPV. The referee makes the count...
Crowd: THREE-E.... NO-O-O-O!!
Zach Davis: Where did FPV find the strength?! He gave it all, with that frog splash!
Oblivion stands up quickly and picks up IT's opponent.

Shannan Lerch: FPV is really struggling, trying to pick up The Monster. He almost has it... NO-O-O!!! He doesn't have the strength to pick up Oblivion for a suplex!!
FPV tries one more time...
Zach Davis: Frank Venable is a trooper, he is really trying to pickup Oblivion for a vertical suplex...
Shannan Lerch: HE DID IT!!!
Shannan Lerch: LEGDROP!! THE DUSTER!!
Zach Davis: PIN ATTEMPT!!!
Crowd: THREE-E.... NO-O-O-O!!
Oblivion begins to shake with anger,as the crowd chants out!!
Crowd: OBLIVION!! OBLIVION!! OBLIVION!! OBLIVION!!
Crowd: FPV!! FPV!! FPV!! FPV!! FPV!!
Oblivion gets to one knee, as FPV continues to strike The Monster with quick haymakers. But, that doesn't stop Oblivion from standing...
Zach Davis: How in the Hell?!?!
Shannan Lerch: ENZIGUIRI!!

Oblivion: SCREAM, FRANKY!! SCREA-EA-EAMM-M!!
Slowly, but surely FPV reaches out, his fingertips are barely touching the ropes. Frank reaches out....
Zach Davis: He almost had the ropes, but Oblivion pulls him back, to the center of the ring!
The Boudle Killer refuses to submit, especially to Oblivion!!
FPV: SCREW YOU-OU-OU!! I'LL NEVER SUBMIT!! NEVER-ER-ER-RR-R!!
Oblivion let's go of the Boston Crab. IT stands up with frustration in IT's eyes!! The Monster picks up FPV... Oblivion kicks Frank in the mid-section...
Shannan Lerch: The Monster nails The Boudle Killer with a ddt!!
Oblivion stands up, as FPV lays motionless....
STOMP!!- STOMP!!- STOMP!!- STOMP!!- STOMP!!
Crowd: S! T! O! M! P!
Oblivion picks up FPV and Irish-whips IT's opponent off the ropes and grabs Frank by the legs, spins him around and Oblivion grabs the Boudle Killer around the neck with IT's right arm and plants him with a DDT.
Zach Davis: BLACK HOLE!!!
Oblivion stands up and grabs for FPV!!
Shannan Lerch: I don't think Oblivion is done yet!!
Oblivion locks FPV into an inverted face lock, by reaching with IT's own left arm draping over his opponent's throat/neck area. Oblivion reaches with IT's right hand and grabs a hold to FPV's ring wear, by the knees. Oblivion tosses IT's rival over IT's left shoulder, while still holding onto his opponent's neck and head. Then, finally crashing down into a Stunner. The crowd is going completely insane!!
Zach Davis: Soultaker!!
Oblivion explodes with emotion, as IT grabs for the top rope and proceeds to shake it violently!! Oblivion cracks IT's own neck and says...
Oblivion: IT'S TIME TO GET BI-POLAR!!
The crowd cheers!!
As FPV is lying near the corner, Oblivion quickly goes to a nearby corner and climbs up to the top turnbuckle. The Monster stands on the top turnbuckle and leaps off with a shooting star press. Cameras flash throughout The WCF Arena. The God of Insanity lands with a nasty massive leg drop, that shakes the ring!!!
Shannan Lerch: BI-POLAR!!
Oblivion looks down and drops to IT's knees and makes the cover. Stanley Moser slides in and...
Zach Davis: Oblivion has done it!! IT has extracted revenge from FPV!! FPV has defeated Oblivion once and Oblivion has defeated FPV!! This has become a well rounded rivalry!! Do you agree, Shannan?!
Shannan Lerch: Yes, I do!! This rivalry has become intense and very personal!! But, tonight, Oblivion comes out with the win!!!
The scene cuts to a close-up of WCF commentators Zach Davis and Shannan Lerch.
Shannan Lerch: What we’re about to show you is a little set of clips that Gravedigger’s training camp has put together to show off some of the training he’s been put through for the last couple of weeks since the announcement of his world title opportunity next week at Blast.
The feed goes dark for a few seconds before “ Gonna Fly Now” starts playing, the all-too familiar music from Rocky. A shot comes up showing Sylvester Stallone once again dressed up as his Rocky character. He and Gravedigger are standing in gym shorts and sneakers. They are bouncing back and forth, Rocky showing Gravedigger how to shuffle his feet and bounce back and forth.
Duke: It’s been quite a task to get Gravedigger ready for Blast. He’s improved greatly in the last two weeks.
As the music continues, the feed switches back to Gravedigger wearing boxing gloves trying to hit a speed bag as quickly as Rocky does beside him. Frustration shows on the face of Gravedigger as he gets hit a couple of times in the head in the next shot of him boxing with Rocky.
Duke: We thought that by giving him some boxing training we’d both make him faster and we’d also make him hit harder. A monster like Gravedigger already hits hard enough, wait until Blast.
The scene switches to various shots of Gravedigger curling big dumbells and military pressing barbells with a few sizeable weights on them. Clean and jerks.
Duke: Oh the weightlifting? Yeah, he’s already caught up with Rock when it comes to strength and he’ll bypass him by the time this airs later this week on Slam.
The montage then cuts to Rocky and Gravedigger jogging down the streets of Philadelphia. Naturally, the fans flock to both men as they run down the street. The segment then cuts to the beach where Gravedigger and Rocky are running down the shoreline. Rocky starts running a little faster and after a few seconds starts leaving Gravedigger behind to where he’s finally off the screen. Rocky turns around and jobs backwards and shrugs at Gravedigger. Finally Rocky’s eyes get real wide and he turns around, running full-force.
Suddenly, the lifeguard four-wheeler comes roaring down the beach and passes by Rocky. A female lifeguard is on the front with Gravedigger riding on the back waving at Rocky. The scene switches back to Duke who is face-palming and looks up. The music fades out.
Duke: As you can see, it’s a work in progress, but I can tell you this. Anyone who doesn’t consider Gravedigger a real contender for the world title next week is going to be wishing they had when he has that hand raised as the new world champion at Blast.
Duke stares at the camera matter-of-factly as the scene fades and the show goes to commercial.
Master of Puppets hits.
Zach Davis: Uh?
Shannan Lerch: Here comes.. Seth.. for some reason.
Seth steps out from the back and stands on the apron. Mic in hand.
Seth Lerch: A moment from now, Johnny Reb is going to come out. But I thought I better announce this before he does. As of today, Sarah Twilight and Ayria Adams are stripped of the Tag Team Titles.
The crowd boos. No one likes Champs being stripped of their belts.
Zach Davis: But.. why?
Shannan Lerch: Eh.
Seth Lerch: But of course, Johnny McFly, you've earned your Tag Titles shot with Kira. Sadly, unlike Chad Evans, you're not guarenteed a one on one.. or two on two.. match. At Blast, the vacant Tag Team Titles will be on the line. Reb and Kira versus Bishop and Priest, my boys. Versus RYAN BLAKE AND MICHAEL SANTIAGO OF THE ALLIANCE!
The crowd pops for such a big matchup.
Zach Davis: Hot damn! Blake and Santiago just came back and they're getting a Tag Team Titles match already!
Shannan Lerch: Big Dick Superstars versus the Darkside of Treachery versus The Alliance!
Seth Lerch: So good luck, Johnny. After what happened to Kira earlier, you'll be needing it.
Seth leaves as we go to commercial.
...aaanddd back from commercial....
Kyle Steel: Now coming to the ring, your special guest referee for this tag team match... Waylon Cash!
The crowd cheers loudly as the opening trumpets of “White Trash Renegade play over the P.A. System, and Waylon Cash jogs out onto the stage. He is wearing his usual ripped blue jeans, but his shirt is a referee shirt with the collar and sleeves cut out. On top of his head is black and white striped hat with the word “REF” written across it in big letters. He smiles as he dances around a little to his music. He steps down the entrance ramp, slapping hands with a couple fans along the way. As he rolls into the ring, he dances just a little more before yielding the spotlight to the wrestlers on their way to the ring.
“Today I Woke to The Rain of Blood” begins to play through the arena, and the crowd erupts into cheers once again. Chad Evans and Johnny Reb step onto the stage, and smile at their adoring fans.
Kyle Steel: Now coming to the ring, Johnny Reb and Chad Evans... Bid Dick Superstars!
They step down the ramp, smiling and shaking hands with fans along the way. At the halfway point, Benjamin Atreyu, and Gein Spector suddenly come running down the ramp, attacking both men from behind. Blake Updegraff IV is not far behind, running down the ramp as he shouts orders. Benji and Gein stomp away on the BDS as Waylon jumps out of the ring, and runs to where the beating is taking place, he tries to step between FGI and BDS, but it's no use. As soon as he block Benji, Gein continues the attack, and vice versa.
Shannan Lerch: How is Waylon gonna regain control of this one? It's hard to get someone to listen to orders when they can't stand you.
Waylon answers her question immediately by hitting Benji in the jaw with a vicious super kick. Seeing his partner sprawled out on the ramp, Gein backs off, and allows Waylon to check on Reb and Evans. Slowly the duo stands, and gets into the ring. Waylon then signals that it's okay for FGI to climb into the ring. They refuse, sitting outside the ring, tending to a pissed off, but seated Benjamin Atreyu. Blake Updegraff IV demands a microphone from one of the ringside attendants.
Blake Updegraff IV: Waylon Cash! I promised that if you pulled something like this I would sue you, and I will follow through! You are now facing the army of attorneys that defends Future Gods Incorporated! Further more, I will see that you are banned for life from WCF!
Waylon rolls his eyes, and walks over to the ropes to grab a mic of his own.
Waylon Cash: Look, I've had enough of you, you bottom feeding, pig fucking pile of shit! If din you annoying as hell,a dn that's gonna distract me from my ref duties, so... hey crowd say it with me...
Waylon brings his hand back, before pointing to the back, and screaming in unison with the fans.
Waylon and crowd:YOU'RE OUTTA HERE!
Blake screams in protest for a moment, but eventually stomps to the back, leaving Gein and Benji on the entrance ramp.
Waylon Cash now, as for you two, if one of you isn't in the ring to start this match within the ten count, I will give this one to Chad Evans and Johnny Reb via count out!
The crowd roars with approval, as Gein and Benji shake their heads indignantly, and stay on the ramp.
Waylon Cash: Fine!
Gein and Benji talk amongst themselves briefly before Gein sprints to the ring, and slides under the bottom rope. Waylon quickly signals for the bell to ring, as Gein collides with Chad Evans in a flurry of fists.
Zach Davis: And this match is off to a furious start!
Johnny Reb climbs out of the ring, allowing the two men to continue their battle. Gein slowly starts to get the upper hand, and backs Chad Evans into one of the neutral turnbuckles. He levels a couple of hard rights to the side of his head, before whipping him into the opposite turnbuckle. Gein sprints toward him, and leaps into the air, landing a hard flying forearm. Evans stumbles out of the corner, and drops to his knees, while reaching for his partner's outstretched hand. Gein shakes his head, and grabs Evans' leg,d ragging him to the center of the ring.
Zach Davis: Gein is angrier than we've seen him in a while.
Shannan Lerch: and Chad Evans is going to pay for it!
Gein grapevines Chad's leg with both of his, and puts him in an ankle lock. Geins wrenches hard on his opponents foot as the man screams out in pain. Slowly, Benjamin Atreyu stands up, and makes his way onto the ring apron. Gein reaches back, and tags in Benji, while still holding on to Chad's leg. Atreyu climbs between the ropes, and drops a leg on the back of Evans' head. Gein refuses to let go of his ankle lock, as Benji stomps away on Evans' back. Waylon counts to five, but instead of signaling for the bell, he stomps on Geins chest a few times, forcing him to release the hold.
Shannan Lerch: It doesn't look like Waylon WANTS to disqualify FGI.
Zach Davis: He delivering his own personal brand of referee justice, and this crowd is loving it!
Gein stands to his feet, and screams at Waylon, but Waylon points to the word “REF” on his hat, and demands Gein leave the ring. It looks like Gein might ignore him for a moment, but he decides to climb out onto the apron. Waylon turns his attention back to Benji, who is still stomping on Chad Evans. Evans gets to his hands and knees, and Benji bounces off the ropes, and hit him with a dropkick to the side of the head. Chad collapses, and looks to be unconscious.
Zach Davis: Absolutely vicious!
Shannan Lerch: FGI is out to prove a point, and I really think this is directed more at Waylon than their opponents.
Benjamin Atreyu rolls him over for the pin.
Benji lifts his opponent up, and breaks the pin. The crowd boos as Waylon yells at him. Benji insists that Chad kicked out himself, as he lifts the man to a standing position. Atreyu hits him with a snap suplex, and leaps to his feet, shooting a nasty glare in Waylon's direction. Atreyu walks over, and tags in Gein, who looks to be more than happy to continue the assault. He picks Chad up, and whips him into the ropes. As Chad bounces off, Reb slaps him on the back, tagging himself in. Gein doesn't notice as he hits Evans with a snap Northern Lights suplex. When he gets up, he's met with a hard lariat from Johnny Reb.
Zach Davis: Reb tagged in, Gein had no idea. The complexion of this match has changed greatly in the span of two seconds!
Geins pops back up, bet Reb hits him with another clothesline, sending him to the ground. Reb drops down, and this Gein with a number of closed right hands before Waylon pulls him off, and warns him to keep his hand open. Reb shoves Waylon out of the way, and hits a standing Gein with a dropkick to the gut, sending him rolling between the ropes, to the concrete below. Benjmain quickly jumps in the ring, but Reb is ready for it. Johnny ducks a clothesline attempt, and kicks Atreyu in the gut, doubling him over. Reb grabs the back of Benji's neck, and the waistband of his trunks, and tosses him through the ropes, onto his newly rises partner. They both go flying into the guardrail, and collapse to the ground as the crowd screams.
Zach Davis: Johnny Reb getting a little bit of revenge for the earlier sneak attack.
Reb eggs the crowd on as he bounces off the opposite ropes, and leaps over the top, hitting Benji and Gein with a corkscrew plancha. All three men fall to the ground, as the crowd cheers loudly, and even Waylon freaks out a little. The special guest referee almost forgets to start counting them out. Once he remembers, it takes until five for Johnny to drag himself into the ring. Benji manages to roll under the bottom rope just before nine, and Reb quickly goes for the pin.
Atreyu kicks out! Reb slaps the mat in frustration before dragging Benji to his feet. Atreyu barely manages to stay standing as Reb bounces off the ropes, but manages to hit him with a last second clothesline, that sends them both to the mat. They lay there for a while, recovering as Waylon begins the ten count. Benjamin is the first to rise at the count of seven. He brings Reb up with him, and hits him with a vicious German suplex. As Gein Spector begins to crawl back onto the apron, Benji manages to drape an arm over Johnny Reb's chest.
Reb manages to get his shoulder up just before Waylon's hand hits the mat for the third time. Benji punches the mat, and slowly begins to crawl over to Gein. Meanwhile, Chad Evans has finally brought himself to a standing position in his corner.
Zach Davis: At this point it's a race, will Johnny Reb get to his partner before Benjamin Atreyu does?
Both men crawl slowly, and they make their tags at virtually the same time. Chad and Gein get into the ring. They run at each other, but chad goes low and hits Gein with a dropkick to the knee. Gein falls to the ground, and Evans slowly makes his way to the corner. He strugles, btu manages to climb to the top rope as Gein gets to his feet. Evans leaps off, and goes for a hurricarana, but Gein catches him, and slams the back of Chad's head on the mat with a powerbomb.
Zach Davis: Good lord, Chad Evans may be seriously injured here.
Gein smiles an evil smiles, and lifts Chad to a seated position. He then bounces off the ropes, and hit a Midwest Nail to the side of Evans' head. Instead of going for a pin though, he goes to lift Evans again. He is unconscious, , so Gein slides him over, and props him up against the ropes. Gein bounces off the opposite ropes, and this him with another running knee. This one connects with Chad's nose, sending it splattering across his face. Blood pours down his chin as Waylon signals for the bell to ring.
Zach Davis: I do believe that Waylon is stopping this match.
Gein ignores it, and hits the man with a third Midwest Nail.
Kyle Steel: The result of this match, due to referee stoppage, your winners are Benjamin Atreyu, and Gein Spector!
Gein doesn't stop. He bounces off the ropes again, but so does Waylon. Cash cuts Spector off with a flying forearm. Atreyu then climbs into the ring to attack Waylon, but get hits with yet another super kick. Waylon then jumps out of the ring, and grabs a microphone. As he steps back up the entrance ramp, a team of EMT's rushes past him to check on Chad Evans.
Waylon Cash: I'm getting really sick of you two. You do shit like this all the time, and you expect to get away with it. That ain't happenin' this time, boys. I talked to management this morning, and at Blast it's going to be the two of you, versus me, and a partner of my choosing. Now, it was obvious to me who I should call, and I was gonna keep it a big secret until the pay per view, but hell, I've never been good at keeping secrets, so here he is!
There is nothing for a moment, then all of a sudden “Dr. Feelgood” by Motley Crue begins to play over the PA, and Doc Henry steps out from behind the curtain. Doc stands tall next to Waylon, as they both raise their hands high in the air.
Seth is backstage, walking down the hallway when he's about to turn a corner and sees Jonny Fly walking down the hallway as well. Seth quickly ducks back so Fly doesn't detect him. Once Fly is out of view, Seth walks up to the door Fly had just exitted. It has a huge star that says PANTHEON on it.
Seth Lerch: Why did I ever agree to that?...
Seth motions to someone off screen. All of a sudden, a forklift comes into view, parking a giant skid of what appears to be cases of beer in front of the Pantheon dressing room.
Seth Lerch: Ha! Let's see you two try and save your little World Champion friend now!
Seth walks away, whistling innocently. We go to the announcers.
Zach Davis: Oh come on..
Shannan Lerch: Hah! Brilliant move!
Zach Davis: Well, if Fly was planning on either Kid or Purse getting to enact any revenge on the D.oT., it won't be happening tonight.
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 entranceway and out from the back walks Gravedigger.
Kyle Steel: Making his way to the ring at this time... weighing in at 260 lbs and hailing from Phoenix, Arizona... the one and only GRAVEDIGGER!
Gravedigger looks around smiling. He stays towards the top of the ramp for a second...
Cowboys From Hell by Pantera rolls a quick drum and busts out of arena speakers. Logan emerges from the black curtains, quickly coming out and heading down the ramp, hitting ring apron and rolling underneath the bottom rope to pop up onto his feet. 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 his partner, weighing in at 250 lbs and hailing from Chesapeake, Virginia... THE FACE OF TREACHERY, LOGAN!
Zach Davis: We've been waiting for this since last week, Shannan... The Darkside of Treachery has finally got Jonny Fly right where they want him.
Shannan Lerch: Well I've thought that before too, Zach, but he usually figures out some kind of way to come on my face and then leave while I'm looking for a towel.
The lights in the arena fade out. After a few suspense filled seconds the words ‘The Dynasty’ appear in bold italic lettering on the jumbotron as the beginning of “Requiem for a Tower” begins to play. A single spotlight turns on and illuminates the silhouette of a man standing on the stage. As the song hits the 50 second mark and the music picks up the lights come on revealing Jonny Fly.
Kyle Steel: And their opponent... weighing in at 225 pounds and hailing from New York, New York... he is the WCF WORLD CHAMPION... JONNY FLY!
Fly stands with the WCF World Heavyweight Championship around his waist and his eyes directly fixed on the ring. He stands motionless on the stage as the jumbotron changes to the words ‘This is the Era of Jonny Fly.’ The music slows down and a barrage of fireworks begins to go off behind Fly. His eyes remain fixed on his opponent throughout. Slowly and deliberately he begins to make his way toward the ring. The music picks up one last time and Fly stops at the bottom of the ramp with his eyes still directly fixed on the ring. He cracks his trademark arrogant smirk causing another negative reaction from the crowd. Fly unwraps his World Title belt and nonchalantly tosses it off to the side, refusing to even bring it into the ring. He walks toward the ring steps and uses them to elevate himself into the ring, where takes a position in the corner to await the start of the match.
Zach Davis: Fly said he'd have a partner for this match, but I don't see one...
Shannan Lerch: Maybe they're still parking his limo.
Logan and Fly trade blows for a few moments... Logan ducks a punch from Fly and Gravedigger boots him in the face.
Zach Davis: Looks like Fly's gonna try and take on two Hall of Famers by himself here, Shannan... and even for a World Champion that's not an advisable strategy. We saw Seth lock the rest of Pantheon in their dressing room a few moments ago, no one is here to save him!
Shannan Lerch: I don't even know who to pull for here... I love Fly, but I've been in love with Logan since I was a young girl. And let's be honest, he could use the win... and a victory lap around my-
Zach Davis: DOUBLE SPINEBUSTER!
Digger and Logan whip Fly to the ropes, double spinebuster. Logan begins taunting the crowd; Digger picks up Fly for a vertical suplex and holds him in the air for a few seconds before releasing. Digger gestures to Logan, who tosses Fly into the turnbuckles and begins punching him.
Crowd: 1! ... 2! ... 3! ... 4! ... 5! ... 6! ... 7! ... 8! ... 9! ... 10!
Fly slumps forward and falls down.
Zach Davis: As expected, Jonny Fly has his hands full here... I'm not sure how long he can hold out against the Darkside of Treachery alone, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: Well where the hell are Purse and Phantasm at for this? Shouldn't one of them be out here getting tossed around with their friend? What the hell kinda stable is Pantheon, anyway?
Digger drags him to the center of the ring giving him a Camel Clutch... Logan bounces off the ropes and dropkicks Fly in the face. He gives Fly another dropkick. Digger releases the hold. Referee checks on Jonny Fly, who is still conscious.
Zach Davis: Perhaps all this time as the unstoppable Champion has burned all of Fly's bridges. Maybe he doesn't have a partner because nobody would team with him.
Shannan Lerch: Or maybe everyone's just afraid of the Darkside of Treachery.
Fly begins to try and pick himself up... Gravedigger grabs him in a side headlock and Fly suddenly dumps him on his head with a belly-to-back suplex. The crowd goes nuts.
Zach Davis: I don't believe it, here comes Jonny Fly!
Fly charges Logan and nails him with a flying elbow, knocking Logan back into the ropes... Fly charges in again and Logan pulls the top rope down as Fly spills outside. Gravedigger and Logan stand in the ring watching the referee count Fly out.
Shannan Lerch: And there goes Jonny Fly.
Just then, the lights go out in the arena.
Zach Davis: Oh no... power outage?
Shannan Lerch: I knew Seth was skimming money somehow!
Zach Davis: Or is this Fly's partner finally arriving?
After several seconds, words written in a bright white begin flashing on the otherwise blackened out Jumbotron. With each fading word, a new word pops up on the screen.
As the last word fades, all five words reappear on the jumbotron at once.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW!?!
Zach Davis: ROY SPEEDE! FLY'S PARTNER IS FINALLY HERE!
Shannan Lerch: Roy... Speede? Wow. I guess Fly really can talk anyone into anything.
Zach Davis: Well nobody's got more to gain in taking out Logan than Roy Speede...
The lights slowly come back on as 'Hear Me Now' by Hollywood Undead begins to play through the speakers. GD and Logan laugh as they await Fly's mystery partner... they look up the ramp, not noticing that Fly has climbed back inside the ring. Behind Jonny Fly, Corey Black climbs into the ring... and the crowd goes wild.
Zach Davis: COREY BLACK! COREY BLACK!! THE MYSTERY PARTNER IS... COREY BLACK!?!
Shannan Lerch: Fly even had ME thinking Speede was here! That's just like Jonny... make you think he's going a usual way, and the next thing you know it hurts to poop for a week.
Zach Davis: I'D TELL YOU HOW DISGUSTING THAT IS BUT LOOK AT THIS! THREE HALL OF FAMERS AND THE WORLD CHAMP IN THE RING!
GD and Logan stop laughing and turn around to see Corey Black and Jonny Fly behind them.
Zach Davis: Good god, does this mean Corey Black is in Pantheon?!
Fly and Logan lock up... Gravedigger gets hit with a punch to the throat by Corey Black, and then a swinging neckbreaker. Fly spins Logan around and tosses him through the ropes to the outside... then jumps up top and lands atop Logan on the outside with a dive.
Shannan Lerch: I have never wanted to be a ring mat so badly in my whole life, Zach.
CD picks Gravedigger up... Digger wraps a hand around CD's throat as he does, but Black headbutts the man and picks him up onto his shoulders in an inverted fireman's carry, dumping Gravedigger with the Burning Hammer.
Zach Davis: BURNING HAMMER ON GRAVEDIGGER!
Corey pins Gravedigger.
Shannan Lerch: UGHHGHGHGHG GOD THIS IS THE WORST NIGHT EVER. FUCK THIS, I QUIT.
Zach Davis: Jonny Fly and Corey Black have scored the victory here tonight!
Shannan Lerch: Who gives a shit!? Logan and Gravedigger weren't ready for this, it doesn't mean ANYTHING!
Kyle Steel: Your winners of the match... PANTHEON!
"Parabola" by Tool hits the PA as the crowd goes wild.
Zach Davis: Well I was wondering who the 'Fourth Man' would be in Pantheon, and now we know... Phantasm, Purse and Fly have been joined in epic fashion by the return to WCF of Corey Black.
Shannan Lerch: In the back, Adam Young is probably fuming.
Gravedigger rolls out of the ring, pulled out by Logan. The two men backpeddle up the ramp. They're joined by FPV, who places his arms around the two men, looking angrily into the ring. FPV points at Jonny Fly, yelling obscenities.
Zach Davis: Fly may have gotten the surprise victory tonight, but Blast will be a different story. He has both Gravedigger AND FPV in the ring, as well as...
Shannan Lerch: OBLIVION!?
OBLIVION is behind Logan, FPV and Gravedigger as they back up the ramp! FPV in particular backs up into him, and behind his mask, IT grins. Oblivion hits FPV with a stiff punch to the head, and FPV goes reeling. He hits Logan, then Gravedigger as well, sending both men stumbling away. Inside the ring, Black watches, smiling. Fly, too, although a little less happy due to the fact that he knows Oblivion will be in the ring with him in one week.
Zach Davis: COREY BLACK returns to the ring, well.. returns again.. to finally shut up Adam Young! Fly defends the World Title against Gravedigger, FPV, and Oblivion! The winners of the Trios Cup Tournament get their Tag Title shot! See you at Blast!
Slam fades.. once again.. to Black.
