Slam opens up with the one and only Kid Phantasm! The crowd gives a huge pop as the Kid is shown walking through the halls of the WCF arena. He arrives at his dressing room door.
Kid Phantasm: Don't worry, Nightmare. Tonight, you're comin' home.
But before Kid opens his door, he notices a note taped to it. Already annoyed, he rips it off and reads it out loud.
Kid Phantasm: "Dear Kid. Don't even THINK about looking for Nightmare before your People's Title match. If you follow that one rule, you'll get her back safe and sound. But if you don't, you and the rest of Pantheon will be carrying her body back in pieces. And why am I making you wait, you ask? Because I like fucking with you, that's why! And don't even THINK about attacking Nathan von Liebert during his match, I have plans for him. So if you value your Nightmare, just stay in the back like a good monkey. Sincerely, Seth Lerch."
Kid crumples the note, trying to keep his composure, but after about a second of that he smashes his fist against the door. He's so close to having his beloved Nightmare back... he knows where he is.... but he has to wait. He enters his dressing room as Slam begins proper.
Drunk and Crazy by Mogwai hits and the fans cheer as we get right on with the show, to Zach and Shannan.
Zach Davis: SO MUCH to talk about, SO MANY matches tonight, I don't know where to begin!
Shannan Lerch: Blast recap! Corey Black captured the Texas Heavyweight Title! FPV managed to win the World Title, I still can't believe it! Terry Roberts joined the Darkside of Treachery! Jeff Purse beat Nathan von Liebert and Kid Phantasm choked information out of Seth to find out where exactly she is! And as we just saw, he's gonna get her back tonight... but AFTER his match.
Zach Davis: His match is, of course, about halfway through the show. So poor Kid has to wait all the way until then to get the love of his life back, a woman who has been beaten, tortured, and maybe even worse... this is disgusting.
Shannan Lerch: I can't say that I agree with Seth 100% of the time, but... yeah.
Zach Davis: Well, moving on. For our main event tonight, our new Champ, FPV, will go one on one with his greatest rival, Roy Speede. Very interesting matchup. We've seen these two tear each other apart time and time again, but this will be a straight up wrestling match. No shenanigans, just one final match.
Shannan Lerch: We have another match that has been brewing for quite a while now, Gravedigger going one on one with Jeff Purse! Purse beat Nathan von Liebert last week and he's been on quite a roll as of late. But I dare say that Gravedigger might be his biggest challenge in WCF thus far.
Zach Davis: For sure. There is certainly no love lost between these two men, and it was also made into a no DQ hardcore match! Sooo it is going to get wild.
Shannan Lerch: Waylon Cash requested a match against Logan. Last week, Cash and Henry were able to defeat Future Gods Inc., and Cash beat the crap out of Blake Updegraff IV... finally ending that whole situation. Cash is looking to move onto bigger and better things.
Zach Davis: Speaking of moving on, Steve Orbit was able to defeat The Maverick Elite, Odin Balfore, and regain the Television Title! They had an amazing series of matches, and now Steve is up against Hunter Valentyne. No rest for the TV Champ.
Shannan Lerch: Terry Roberts requested a rematch of his WCF redebut... so he'll be in a triple threat match with Michael Santiago and Ryan Blake. Very different situation this time, though; Santiago and Blake are both officially Alliance now, so this more closely resembles a handicap match than anything else.
Zach Davis: Eric Price and Jonathan Jakobs are up against the team of the Internet Champ, Johnny Stylez, and Tommy Kain. Their Drama group is looking to make an impact, and beating Price and Jakobs may be the way to do it.
Shannan Lerch: Adam Young and the Scoutmaster are going one on one! What a match that is going to be. Adam Young will surely be in a foul mood after being defeated by Corey at Blast. But he DID give Black a run for his money, that's for sure.
Zach Davis: Kira Sakazaki is booked to be in action. Kira didn't show up to his big Tag Titles match last week, which definitely hindered poor Reb's chances of winning, that's for sure... will he show up tonight?
Shannan Lerch: I'm surprised Reb didn't see it coming! Heh.
Zach Davis: Bishop and Steeltoe Joe go one on one. This is Joe's first match in WCF since returning and aligning himself with Tek, to the surprise of everybody.
Shannan Lerch: Sabastian Reynolds and Barnabus Smythe are all making their debuts, and Shane Knight is returning, fighting in a four way with Kale Windsor. That one is anybody's matchup.
Zach Davis: And in our opener, we'll see the 8th Wonder in action against Nathan von Liebert and Oblivion. Seth threatened Kid Phantasm not to interfere in this match because he has plans for NvL... what could that mean?
Shannan Lerch: Seth is also set to make announcements regarding Ultimate Showdown here tonight, can't wait for that.
The lights go blood red, and everyone in the crowd stands on their feet.
Zach Davis: I think we may be getting a few words from our new world champ Shannan!
The intro to "Ghosts N' Stuff" plays over the P.A system, and the crowd pops...until for some reason the track goes all weird, like it's playing on a scratched up CD. This confuses the crowd for a bit...then all the lights go out, as words in bright white show up on the TitanTron, read aloud by FPV.
In the name of God, impure souls of the boudles I face shall be banished into eternal damnation...
A loud blast of pyro goes off in the arena, scaring the crap out of everyone. And then...loud horns hit the P.A system, as the intro to "Tank!", the Cowboy Bebop theme, starts playing.
"I think it's time we blow this scene, get everybody and the stuff together... okay, three, two, one, let's jam!"
The saxophones begin to play the main riff of the song, as FPV, Da Funk, and Johnny Nova all emerge from the curtains, standing tall and proud, FPV with his World Title over his shoulder and a mic in his hand. All three begin their walk to the ring.
Shannan Lerch: And there's the man who took the World title out of Jonny Fly's grasp. That kid is gonna get his come uppance, I swear.
Zach Davis: I think it should be noted that FPV isn't surrounded by his DoT teammates. No Logan, no Doc...and no Gravedigger. Wonder what that's all about. Maybe he'll tell us right now...
All three are in the ring now, as FPV slowly brings the mic to his face.
He stops, trying to think of the right thing to say at this moment in time. He ponders...and then begins to speak.
FPV: I can only think of two words to say to you now, WCF fans. Two words: Thank You. Thank you to all the fans, thank you to the ring crew, to the others in the back, just...Thank you, you guys don't know how much I've been waiting to have this belt.
I can still remember the first time I stepped into a WCF ring. You guys didn't know what to think of me, I looked like some freaking action movie hero or something.
FPV softly chuckles at the recollections.
FPV: God, look at how much as changed over a year. It doesn't even feel like a year, more like a couple of months. In a years time the company has changed hands twice, stable wars have sprung up, and Jay Price actually won a World title. Crazy, ain't it. But throughout all the crazyness, one thing has stayed almost contant. Me. I've stayed with you guys, and it's starting to pay off for the both of us.
But don't think this is the end. Oh no, babygurls, this is only the beginning! This is the start of something amazing, this is the start of the end of the Jonny Fly era! This is...
Before he can finish, "Changes" hits the PA and Gravedigger emerges, drawing loud boos from the audience. A mic is in his hand.
Zach Davis: Wow, way to ruin someone's victory speech, jerk.
Gravedigger goes down the ramp and into the ring. He and FPV both lock gazes, stern looks on both of their faces. Then Gravedigger speaks.
Gravedigger: You're right Franky, it is the beginning of the end.
FPV: So you finally agree with me on something for once.
The two stare at each a bit more.
Gravedigger: The beginning of the end of Jonny Fly!
Both men now smile, as they extend their hands at almost the exact same time and shake on it. Gravedigger raises one of FPVs hand in the air, as Da Funk raises the other.
Shannan Lerch: Well would you look at that, Gravedigger actually showing some sportsmanship for once!
Zach Davis: I know, who woulda thought?
The show cuts to a commercial as the group celebrate in the ring.
"8th Wonder" begins to play over the PA System and both members of The 8th Wonder are pushed onto the stage by a WCF staffer. The crowd responds with a huge ovation for the duo. The loud noise causes Kelvin Staylor to cover his ears as Markus Jayson waves his hand out at the crowd. Jayson has their mascot, the groundhog Duchess Havok, in a cage that he's holding.
Zach Davis: Here they are! The two, the only, the 8th Wonder! And they've decided to bring along their beloved mascot, Duchess Havok!
Staylor hurriedly powerwalks down the ramp toward the ring while Jayson takes his time and shakes his hands with every single person he walks by, showing off the cute little groundhog to the kids. Finally at ringside he slides into the ring after putting Duchess Havok at the announce table and continues waving toward the crowd as Staylor sits in the corner in a fetal position.
Shannan Lerch: Aw, what a cute little groundhog.
Zach Davis: Well, things are about to get a whole lot LESS cute around here.
The camera pans to the titantron, where an oak door comes into view. A thump is heard, and the door shakes on its hinges. Several more thumps occur, until the blade of an ax busts through the door. Smoke begins to form on the stage, as a dark figure steps out. Suddenly a woman voice yells out from the speaker.
"No, go away!
Leave me alone!"
Smoke billows down the aisle as the man walks down it to the ring, his identity shrouded in the smog. Meanwhile, on the titantron, the ax makes a large hole in the wood, and a hand reaches in for the door knob, the fingernails painted black. Again the frightened voice rings out as the mystery man slides into the ring.
"Don't you come in here!
I don't want you here.!"
The mystery man watches the titantron now, as the door opens, and the same man standing in the ring, steps into the house. A lightning bolt cracks behind him, equal in volume to the string of fireworks that fire up on the ramp. The man on the titantron rubs his thumb on the door, leaving a bloody smear on the polished oak. He lifts the ax with both hands, as the voice pleads.
"No, No, No, NO!!
The scream is cut off as the man swings the ax. Blood appears to splatter across the tron, and then the name "Nathan von Liebert" is written with a finger painted black. Nathan, who is in the ring, falls on his knees, never taking his eyes off the 'tron until it goes black. He then scans the members of the crowd that he could without contorting his torso, as Heather Lee announces him.
Shannan Lerch: The man set on torturing Kid Phantasm, here is good old Nathan von Liebert. Personally, I don't miss that rat of his.
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 WCF 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!!!
Zach Davis: DAT ENTRANCE.
The bell rings. Markus and Kelvin look at each other, a look of fear across both of their faces. NvL and Oblivion run at the pair, tackling them down and hitting them with punch after punch after punch.
Shannan Lerch: This isn't even going to be a match so much as it is an assasination.
NvL lifts Markus up and Headbutts him, sending him reeling. NvL then grabs him and snaps off a big German Suplex, looking like he may've just broken Markus' neck!
Zach Davis: OOF!
Meanwhile, Oblivion has Kelvin in the corner, kicking away at him mercilessly. Oblivion lifts him up and then onto the top of the turnbuckle, he climbs up with him.... and brings him down with a huge Superplex, onto the body of poor Markus Jayson!
Shannan Lerch: Aw, I almost feel bad for the poor guys.
Nathan turns Kelvin over, still on top of Markus, and then balances on one foot on Kelvin's neck!
Zach Davis: The Choker! Come on, seriously?
Nathan then jumps from Kelvin's body onto Markus', doing a bit of a Mushroom Stomp type move into Markus' gut. NvL grins as Markus coughs, holding his stomach in pain.
Shannan Lerch: Geez.. just end this already!
Nathan lifts Kelvin up, as Oblivion grabs Markus. Oblivion puts Markus into the Straight Jacket as Nathan performs the Straight Jacket Drop!
Zach Davis: Its those two that should be in the straight jackets!
Markus immediately taps out, and the bell rings. Naturally, Oblivion doesn't release the hold until the referee threatens to reverse the decision. The fans boo as Oblivion and NvL raise their arms, savoring their victory. They then turn to the announcer's table.
Shannan Lerch: What're they looking at US for!?
NvL slides out and grabs the cage containing Duchess Havok from the table! He slides back in and taunts the fallen 8th Wonder with it. Oblivion looks into the cage and seems to lick his lips hungrily.
Zach Davis: First Nightmare, then Haruna, now Duchess Havok!? I can't believe this-
But all of a sudden, Master of Puppets hits.
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh. Well, we knew Seth had some business with this match, but what could it be?
Seth and Gravedigger step out onto the stage. Oblivion snarls as he sees one of his most hated rivals, Gravedigger. Nathan looks towards the ramp as well.
Seth Lerch: Great match, guys. I'm not being sarcastic, I thoroughly enjoyed you beating up those two idiots. And stealing their groundhog afterwards?! Classic!
Seth applauds them as Gravedigger nods. In the ring, Oblivion snatches Kyle Steel's mic.
Oblivion: GET ON WITH IT SETH! WHAT DO YOU WANT?!
Seth Lerch: Whoa there, calm down, big guy. I'm not really even here to talk to you. I'm here to talk to Nathan.
NvL raises one eyebrow.
Seth Lerch: You see, Nathan, I've always been a big supporter of yours. I was glad that you won the One Invitational, and I was happy to give you your first World Title shot against Corey Black. But I've REALLY enjoyed what I've seen of you lately. Kidnapping Nightmare!? Man, you KNOW I love that. Even joining up with Monsters, Inc. showed a lot of initiative. And Gravedigger here agrees with me. You see, we're in the DARKSIDE of Treachery, and quite frankly, Nathan, you'd represent the Darkside part of it quite well.
Oblivion and Nathan now realize what Seth is getting at.
Seth Lerch: So consider this a formal invitation to join the D.o.T., which I don't need to tell you, is the hottest damn thing going right now. I'm not stupid, I know your first instinct is going to be "Hell no!," so I don't want you to answer now. You have one week to think it over, and next week I'll be asking you for your answer. See you then, Nathan.
And with that, Seth and Gravedigger depart. Oblivion and Nathan glance at each other, and Nathan quickly assures Oblivion he's not even going to consider it.
Zach Davis: Very interesting development here... hm.
Shannan Lerch: Nathan would be an idiot not to join them! I have a feeling we'll see a new Darkside of Treachery member next week, Zach.
Zach Davis: But would you really want to make an enemy of Oblivion? Can't wait until next week to see how this goes.... could this be the end of Monsters, Inc.?
Nathan and Oblivion exit and head to the back.
"Ecstasy of Gold" by Ennio Morricone begins to play over the PA system, and Benjamin Atreyu steps out onto the entrance ramp. He stands there for a moment, allowing the fans to boo, before he brings the mic to his lips, and begins to speak.
Benjamin Atreyu: I would like to start off tonight, by reading a few official announcements from Future Gods Incorporated.
Benjy removes a piece of paper from his trunks, giving the fans more time to jeer him. He slowly unfolds the paper, and clears his throat.
Benjamin Atreyu: Johnny Slick is still hospitalized, and in a vegetative state, after being the recipient of three Midwest Nails from Gein Spector. Future Gods Incorporated sends him our best wishes for a speedy recovery. In other news, Chad Evans is still injured, and FPV still has not officially gotten the surgery to become a man. We at Future God Incorporated sincerely hope that he can come to grips with who he is very soon, and go on to a life of judgment free happiness with whatever body he or she chooses.
The crowd reacts loudly at the dig on their World Champion, as Benjy laughs to himself.
Benjamin Atreyu: That being said, I would like to introduce to you the fearless, risk taking CEO, who was put in harms way by the disgustingly negligent management here at WCF. Ladies and gentlemen, the honorable Blake Updegraff IV.
F.U. Pay Me by Tech N9ne comes over the PA, and Hardcore McMurderkill pushes a wheelchair bound Updegraff to the stage. The wheelchair is all black, except for the spokes, which are gold plated. With a pained expression on his face, he raises the microphone, and begins to speak.
Blake Updegraff IV: Ladies and gentlemen, thanks to the careless actions of the horrible management here at WCF, I was put into a situation I never should have been put into. As a result of that situation, I was badly injured. THAT is the definition of a hostile work environment! As a result, I plan to sue WCF for every penny it has. I will own this company when we are finished, and once that is the case, I will make sure Waylon Cash never works in this industry again!
The crowd boos loudly, and begins a clear “YOU TAPPED OUT” chant. Blake throws his hands over his ears, as Benjy and Hardcore scream at the crowd to shut up. This only gets them to scream louder, so Blake screams back at them.
Blake Updegraff IV: You ingrates! You have no idea what I went through this week! I have been in and out of the hospital, undergoing numerous tests on my back! Waylon Cash injured me, because WCF management told him to, and I will not rest until justice is done, and this conspiracy is brought to an end!
The crowd screams for his head, as F.U. Pay Me begins to play again, and Hardcore McMurderkill slowly wheels him to the back, and Benjy follows.
Shannan Lerch: Well Zach, its time for another debut scramble match, courtesy of my idiot brother.
Zach Davis: Hey! I like these matches! Get to see whats being added to the WCF talent pool
Shannan Lerch: Or lack there of.
The song starts and the lights strobe as Kale Windsor steps out on the stage at the top of the ramp. Kale stands there for a moment, as if he's taking in all of the love in the area. He pays no mind to the boos, for he feels everyone loves him. He casually walks down the rampway towards the ring. Once at the ring he slides in under the ropes. He then stands in the middle of the ring as if he's king of the world while each ring post pops with pyros.
Zach Davis: Kale made his debut at Blast! Last night but came up short. I wonder if he pick up the win tonight.
"Singing in the Rain" by Gene Kelly blares through out the arena and out comes Sebastian Reynolds who looks like the literally stepped out of a Clockwork Orange with Alex's cane and everything. He happily prances down the ramp and stops to make a comment on how ugly or fat a woman in the audience is or telling a kid he is a brat and that the kid's father is a terrible father for bringing his child to see some of the mindless violence that is pro wrestling. Sebastian hops on the apron and goes into his corner handing his top hat to the ring crew and puts his cane down on the edge of the corner.
Shannan Lerch: Havent we seen a clock work orange guy here before?
Zach Davis: Probably, one can’t keep track of these things.
The Lights go out as blue mist begins to fill the air as Shane's theme begins to play. A man wearing a hoodie comes out to an arena full of cheers. He removes the hood and looks around as he stands at the top of the ramp. He smiles and continues walking down the aisle as he approaches the ring. He slides in the ring and runs to the turnbuckle and climbs it smiling.
Shannan Lerch: Heres a good lookin guy.
Zach Davis: Just what you need, more coc--
Shannan Lerch: SHUT UP!
Zach Davis: -Pany…
Shannan Lerch: Watch your ass.
Zach Davis: you’re one to talk.
“Yo Ho A Pirate’s Life For Me” begins to play and a wooden replica pirate ship is wheeled out onto the stage by Barnabus’s crewmen. With Barnabus scouting his opponent with the use of a pirate’s telescope from the crow’s nest of the ship, he is wheeled to ringside. After his boat reaches ringside, Barnabus swings into the ring on a rope and draws his sword ready to fight.
Zach Davis: Pirates! More pirates! Best part about this job.. Pirates.
Shannan Lerch: you and my brother both! You keep hiring these guys. You must really like getting your poop deck swabbed.
As soon as the bell rings all four men square off. Kale with Sebastian and Shane with Barnabus. Kale and Sebastian lock up as Kale gets put into a side head lock. Shane kicks Barnabus in the gut and backs him into the turn buckle.
Shannan Lerch: Sebastian shoots Kale from the hip, across the ring and off the ropes.
Zach Davis: as Shane whips Barnabus into the adjacent turn buckle.
Shannan Lerch: We almost had an mid ring collision there. Damn, Shame it didn’t happen. Shane charges after Barnabus as Kale comes back just as the right time to put the breaks on and school boy Shane!
Zach Davis: Broken up by Sebastian!
Sebastian starts kicking away at Kale as Barnabus comes over and lifts up Shane and suplexes him down! Sebastian turns his attention to Barnabus, kicking him in the gut. He puts his leg on Barnabus’s head and back flips over him to hit a running neck breaker!
Zach Davis: Wow!
Kale and Shane get back up. Kale comes at Shane who goes for a jumping corkscrew roundhouse but kale ducks it. Shane recovers only to get planted with a DDT. Sebastian locks up with Kale again but Sebastian gets whipped off the ropes as Barnabus gets to his feet.
Shannan Lerch: Kale low bridges Sebastian.
Zach Davis: Power slam by Barnabus, the bigger man in the match.
Shannan Lerch: Broken up by Kale.
Zach Davis: Kale, turn around!
Shannan Lerch: Running cutter by Shane Knight! He calls the Knock Out Shot.
Zach Davis: Barnabus breaks up the pin.
Barnabus picks up Shane Knight and lifts him into a suplex..
Shannan Lerch: Standing suplex into a swinging neck breaker! Shane looks to have cracked his head pretty good.
Zach Davis: Prepare to be boarded!
Shannan Lerch: GAY!
Zach Davis: but it gets the pin..
Zach Davis: holy shit! What a way to break up yet another pin! Kale Windsor with a swanton bomb!
Kale recovers quick as he runs back to the turnbuckle, leaping onto it.
Shannan Lerch: split leg moonsault to Sebastian.
Zach Davis: Sebastian lifts the knees up.
Sebastian humps at the opportunity and quickly rolls kale up.
Shannan Lerch: Everyone’s out except for Sebastian Reynolds.
Barnabus recovers from the Swanton Bomb as Shane knight still clutches his head. Barnabus runs over to Sebastian as he argues with the ref and leaps up onto his back..
Zach Davis: Double knee to the spin.. Walk The Plank.
Shannan Lerch: Shane looks like he’s coming too.
Here comes Shane with the save..
Shannan Lerch: Shane just missed his chance to save the match!
Zach Davis: That means that Barnabus is our winner! Finally a pirate that actually does something! YES!
A drum corp steps out into the arena wearing Confederate uniforms from the Civil War era. They start drumming and then stop and yell out "Rebel Pride" and the lights go out. "Remember the Alamo" appears on the WCFtron and "Reach Down" by Temple of the Dog starts playing as the arena lights come back on. A yellow rose is across the waveing Texas flag on the WCFtron as "The Villain" Adam Young, Serenity Young, and Outlaw all step out wearing camo "Villain" t-shirts carrying little Texas flags. The fans are booing as the trio reaches the ring.
Adam Young: Corey Black you damn snake in the grass get your ass out here right now!
Adam walks over to the ring ropes faceing the entranceway and looks to see if he is comeing.
Adam Young: Once a coward always one huh Black. Black you better be getting ready to hand back over that Texas championship cause this time around you think your fighting in your playground. Well Black I got bad news for ya son, I spent many years wrestling over there and oh yeah did I forget to mention my heritage is of a Viking descent.
Adam pulls of his t-shirt and points towards his new tattoo of his heritage.
Adam Young: I'm telling you right now Seth Lerch that at XIII you will no longer have to worry yourself with Corey Black cause he will die in my cold hands. By hook or crook Corey Black dies on July 13, in Noraway.
Serenity kisses Adam.
Adam Young: You fucking idiots need a real fucking hero and that is me "The Villain" Adam Young.
"Reach Down" by Temple of the dog starts playing as the trio leaves the ring to chorus of boos and trash being thrown at them.
Zach Davis: Ready for our next match?
Shannan Lerch: Whats our next match?
Zach Davis: Bishop verse Steeltoe Joe.
Shannan Lerch: Oh, I’m already for this epic.
Zach Davis: I can tell by your sarcasm that your super excited.
"Run This Town" by Jay Z plays and out from the back walks Bishop. Bishop throws his arms up as he looks around at the crowd. He walks down the ramp and climbs into the ring.
Shannan Lerch: looks like our fellow resident seven footer is on his way to the ring right now. Bishop is coming off of the loss in the tag team ladder match.
Zach Davis: Haven’t we learned not to make these guys angry yet?
Shannan Lerch: Apparently not.
The Arena Goes Dark, and then all simultaneously “Barton Hollow” By The Civil Wars begins to play through the audio systems. The Entrance Gate area and Stage begin to flicker with White lights and neon blue flashes mixed in the flickers. Fog fills the gate area as Steeltoe Joe comes walking out of the midst of the Fog. Joe Stands on stage and plays to the crowds who are cheering for him. Joe then walks down the ramp and gets to the ring steps where he stops, does a Catholic Crucifix motion and then walks up the steps and into the ring. He climbs up two turnbuckles and does the same crucifix motion and raises his arms and points towards Heaven
Zach Davis: Well here comes STJ, whose almost as big as Bishop at six foot five, two-seventy-two.
Shannan Lerch: He might be nearly as big but is he nearly ass pissed off?
Zach Davis: That’s a good question, I think we’re about to find out.
Bishop goes right after STJ and starts hammering away with rights and lefts. He throws STJ into the corner an unloads with more punches. Uppercut after uppercut connect, sending STJ to the mat.
Shannan Lerch: Bishop with his semi famous five uppercut combo.
Bishop lifts STJ up and goes for a running power slam but STJ, kicks off and shoves Bishop into the buckle. Bishop stumbles back towards STJ who just lifts Bishop up into a flap jack.
Zach Davis: Nice counter by STJ with that flap jack come back to answer all those uppercuts.
STJ just starts laying the boots to Bishop as Bishop seemingly shurgs them off, getting to a knee and swiping as STJ, knocking him to the ground.
Shannan Lerch: Bishop applies that ankle lock to STJ.
Zach Davis: It seems as if he’s on really tight.
STJ fights hard. He’s struggling to reach the ropes. Bishop takes a few steps back to keep them center ring. The ref checks on STJ but he doesn’t want to quit.
Shannan Lerch: REF BUMP!
Zach Davis: STJ just managed to flip over the super heavy weight and he collided with the ref.
Shannan Lerch: Things are about to get dirty just the way Bishop likes them.
Zach Davis: And you as well.
STJ and Bishop collide in the ring, brawling with one another until STJ lifts Bishop up on his shoulders. Bishop is able to use his weight to get off STJ’s shoulders. He hit’s the ropes as STJ turns around..
Zach Davis: big boot by Bishop! That’ll knock STJ five ways from Sunday.
Bishop picks up STJ for a power bomb but its countered into a swinging neck breaker!
Shannan Lerch: Divination !
Zach Davis: A kick out at what would be a two if the ref was there to count but he’s out cold it looks.
Shannan Lerch: We need to get better ref’s.
Zach Davis: I dunno, I kinda like em. They’re spongy like cake.
STJ picks up Bishop and lifts him up for a stalling brain buster
Shannan Lerch: STJ hits that Strong hold, brain buster.
STJ goes to continue his assault on Bishop but he locks in Bishops Gate!
Zach Davis: Bishops got that gogoplata submission locked in.
Shannan Lerch: Just in time for the ref to come too.
The ref checks on STJ who braces himself against the mat.
Shannan Lerch: STJ taps!
Zach Davis: What’s going on?
The ref shakes his head no and taps his shoulder.
Shannan Lerch: I guess the match continues?
Zach Davis: I guess because Bishops shoulders weren’t on the mat fully and the tap out happened after the three count.
The ref pulls Bishop and STJ apart and stands them up, trying to put them in separate corners but Bishops having none of that. And the men clash center ring once again. STJ whips Bishop off the ropes. STJ ducks as Bishop comes back and just hammers down full force with a right hand. STJS down but Bishop picks him back up and power slams him down..
Zach Davis: STJ barely gets the shoulder up.
Bishop gets STJ back up and whips him into the corner. He charges STJ and goes for a splash.
Shannan Lerch: STJ ducks it! Bishop eats the ring post.
Still very dazed, STJ fights through as Bishop turns around, reeling from the post shot.. STJ walks into Bishop and hooks him up for the Baptism..
Shannan Lerch: STJ picks up the win and adds to Bishops streak of bad luck.
Zach Davis: Bad luck indeed but good luck for STJ!
Master of Puppets hits.
Shannan Lerch: here we go, the WCF Chairman, my lovely brother, Seth Danger Lerch!!
Zach Davis: so, who do you think you are, Shannan? Haruna Sakazaki?
Shannan Lerch: hey, at least I'm not my brother's lover! but still, i really like that pair. they're really cute!
Zach Davis: who's the cute one? Kira or Haruna?
Shannan Lerch: ...... you don't say!
Seth is ready with his mic for saying something.
Seth Lerch: well, it actually wastes my time. but i came here to have something to say. i just.... feeling that the Trios Cup was a big, big failure!
Seth Lerch: hey, hey, hey!! let's face it! we have Chad Evans. the man who failed to reclaim the WCF World Champion after he suffered a serious injury. Johnny Reb, the man who tried to capitalize the WCF Tag Team Champion.... alone! and yes, i came here to give something to that third member of the Trios Cup Tournament Winner..... you're right, your favorite International Champion, Kira Sakazaki!
Zach Davis: hey, we just have a talk about him, what a coincidence!
Seth Lerch: so, Kira! what the hell are you thinking? you didn't show up when I give you a gold opportunity? you are a complete failure for your team! so tonight, i'll give you a suspension match! if you don't show up again tonight, you will be FIRED!!
Seth Lerch: and oh, about the details of the match. i have a perfect opponent for The International Sensation to face tonight. Kira Sakazaki...... versus Hardcore McMurderkill...... in a HARDCORE MATCH!!! and it starts.... NOW!!! Happy sunday, everyone!!
Mixed reaction from the crowd.
Zach Davis: WHO THE FUCK IS HARDCORE MCMURDERKILL??!!
Shannan Lerch: correct me if i wrong, but Hardcore McMurderkill is the most violent man over WCF Roster. this match should be dangerous for Kira. Kira should be killed in this match.....
Zach Davis: .....or murdered!
Shannan Lerch: that's a same thing, idiot!
Zach Davis: i mean, i love his name, Hardcore McMurderkill, Kira should be murdered or killed in this hardcore match. is that makes any sense?
Shannan Lerch: you're annoying, Zach!
Master of Puppets hits as Seth leaves the arena. and the show goes into commercial break.
Zach Davis: we're back on Sunday Night Slam! and right now we'll se a Hardcore match, Kira Sakazaki against that man right there, Hardcore McMurderkill.
Shannan Lerch: and Kira reported missing in any place, if Kira doesn't show up tonight, he can kiss his career goodbye.
Zach Davis: look at that guy, looks like he's really excited with this match. is he intended to kill Kira tonight?
we can see McMurderkill bring a piece ow wood wrapped by barbed wire. he shouts to the WCF fans.
Hardcore McMurderkill: HARDCORE, Baby!!
now everybody waits for Kira's arrival.
"IN YOUR POSITION, SET!!"
Beginner by VSK echoes around the arena. but still, Kira doesn't show up yet until....
the screen goes buzzing until it suddenly shutted.... the arena goes dark.
Zach Davis: oh, come on! don't start again? i just told you that..... OH SHIT!!!
a blinding flash of red light lights up the WCF Arena. Limpid Luster hits and we can see someone appears in the entranceway.
Shannan Lerch: WOOW!!!! Look at that! Kira Sakazaki finally shows up!! but.... something wrong with him... Zach?
Zach Davis: MY EYES!!! NO, I'M BLIND! I'M BLIND!!! CURSE YOU, RED LIGHT!!
Kira walks like a zombie while covering his face. Cameraman approaches him but he replied with a rude shout.
Kira Sakazaki: STAY AWAY FROM ME!!! I SAID, STAY AWAY!!
Kira desperately walks through the ramp and climbs the ring. then he stand on McMurderkill's back. McMurderkill looks at Kira in confusion. and the match starts....
DING DING DING!!
Kira quickly turns around and charging up through McMurderkill. Kira hits him with a vicious jumping high kick until he's down! we can see a furious face of Kira.
Shannan Lerch: what the hell happened here? that's not Kira that he used to be!
McMurderkill crawls away from him but angry Kira walks to him and stomp his leg continously. McMurderkill screams in pain. then, Kira goes outside the ring and looking for a table. he brings the table inside the ring and set it up. Kira picks up a lighter inside the pocket and BURN THE TABLE!!!
Zach Davis: Holy Dick!!! it's a FLAMING TABLE, Shannan!!!
Kira stands McMurderkill up and Whip him to the rope then Kira lifts him in a Flapjack.... Right into the flaming table!! WHAMM!!! McMurderkill shakes violently!! Kira drags him and gives him a multiple mounted punch to McMurderkill. he doesn't stop it until he looks at McMurderkill's wooden piece. he picks up the wood and removes the barbed wire wrapped it. then, he wraps that barbed wire to McMurderkill's neck.
Shannan Lerch: Kira goes Lunatic! McMurderkill's going to die!!
Kira hangs the wire to the tope rope then he goes outside the ring and pull the wire while screaming out loud...
Kira Sakazaki: TAKE THIS, LANCE!!! THIS IS THE CONSEQUENCES IF YOU DISRESPECT ME!!
Zach Davis: Lance? who's Lance?
Shannan Lerch: whoever he is, please stop this match, McMurderkill is going to die if the match continues!
McMurderkill desperately tries to release the wire that wraps him. suddenly Referee decides to stop this match. but, Kira still not release it. until officials, securities, even Johnny Reb and Pantheon members tries to tell him to stop his action. Phantasm tries to force off Kira's hand to release it but Kid recieves a right hand shot from Kira.
Shannan Lerch: what the hell happened with him? he even attacks his own friend....
Kira Sakazaki: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH ME?! STAY AWAY FROM ME!! RRRAARRGGHHHH!!!
Kira retreats to the backstage leaving a confusion for everyone in the arena.
Zach Davis: so, who win this?
Shannan Lerch: probably this match declared with no contest. and Kira did something terrible to that Hardcore-lover man right there.
Zach Davis: but, Kira's career finally didn't being cutted. and now, where is he going? why he did that? and.... WHO THE FUCK IS THAT "LANCE" GUY??!!
Shannan Lerch: Zach, stop using Jonny Fly's catchphrase!
Shannan Lerch: Folks, we got Adam Young Verse The Scout master coming up next.
Zach Davis: That’ll be an interesting match indeed.
"Reach Down" by Temple of the Dog starts playing as a single white light hits the entrance. Serenity steps out and motions towards the back. Out steps Adam in a camo "Villain" t-shirt with a skull with a yellow rose in its mouth and black wrestling tights with red "Villain" on each side. Around his waist is the Texas Heavyweight championship belt. He motions for Boss to follow him and they start towards the ring. Adam stops half way down and points at a fan in the crowd. Adam grabs the sign the fan has and shows it to the camera, "Time to get Villainess". Adam slides into the ring and the fans begin the "BTJ" chant as he throws his t-shirt into the crowd. Serenity walks over to Adam and kisses him before she steps out of the ring.
Zach Davis: Adam comes off his loss to Corey Black who made is return to action last night.
Shannan Lerch: Took that Texas Title too.
Zach Davis: Then you can sure bet that Young will be out for some pay back and that might not bode well for Stewart Slane
“Follow Me, Boys!” plays as Stu marches out from the back, silently mouthing the lyrics to his theme as he heads down the ramp.
Zach Davis: Hey look Shannan, He’s got your theme music. It fits you perfectly.
Shannan Lerch: Shut your mouth pirate boy.
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 his corner. He hands his hat and sash off to a WCF stagehand and assumes a fighting position.
Zach Davis: The scout masters ready.
Shannan Lerch: good because Adam Young is always lookin for a fight; even if he can’t win it.
Young and Slane lock up in the middle of the ring. Slane whips Young off the ropes and hit’s a flap jack power slam!
Zach Davis: Slane, already with the high impact power moves.
Shannan Lerch: And Young’s pretty much all technical. This should be an interesting match.. I hope.
Slane reaches down and grabs Young by the throat and tries to heave him up but Young counters it into an arm bar.
Shannan Lerch: Youngs gonna keep Slane ground, especially if he wants the chance to survive this match.
The ref checks Slane to see if he wants to tap but Slane hangs in there. Young really wrenches the arm as Slane props himself up and gets to his feet, taking Young with him before powering him down with a side walk slam! Slane picks up young and shoots him off the ropes again but again Young counters as he comes back and hit’s a falling knee smash. Slane stumbles back as gets to his feet and charges again.
Zach Davis: Thunderous spear by Slane!
Shannan Lerch: Nearly broke Young in half.
Slane picks up young and turns him around.
Zach Davis: Slane going for that hang man neck breaker.
Shannan Lerch: Giving that scout salute.
Zach Davis: Or as you call it, The shocker.
Zach Davis: But Slane wastes too much time and the Technical Adam Young reverses it into a neck breaker of his own.
Young stays on Slane and tries to put clinch a key lock submission but Slane wisely reaches the ropes.
The ref calls for the break but Adam Young says screw it and holds on.
1 2 3 4 ..
Young breaks the hold, only to stomp Slane out of the ring. Slane takes a moment to gain his composure as Young Vaults out of the ring but Slane catches him and power slams him to the floor.
Slane picks Young up in a bear hug and rams him against the steel post. Slane goes to power him down with a spine buster but Young rakes the eyes and is let go.
Slane gets to his feet as Young hops up onto the apron an to the second rope..
Zach Davis: Spring board moon sault.
Shannan Lerch: Slane catches him and turns it into a death valley driver!
Slane rolls back into the ring as the ref continues to count.
Adam Young gets to his feet.
Shannan Lerch: Adam Young rolls into the ring and just makes the ten count.
Young rolls back into the ring as Slane runs and boots him in the gut! Slane gets Adam Young up and hooks him up for a pump handle slam..
No, right into the gut buster.
Zach Davis: Young just gets the shoulder up!
Slane doesn’t like that one bit as he takes to the corner, prepping for a spear. Young gets to his feet as Slane explodes out of the corner.
Shannan Lerch: Lazerus!
Slane looks around the area and gives the scout salute again as he goes back to young and hooks him up into an inverted clover leaf.
Zach Davis: Adam Young screams in pain, trying to reach for the ropes but its of no use.
Shannan Lerch: Young is going to tap..
The ref checks but Adam refuses.
Slane tightens his grip but Young still hangs on.
Zach Davis: Youngs got no where to go, he cant reach the ropes.
Young stretches once more.... and he does finally manage to reach! The crowd boos as Slane is forced to release the hold. Slane begins to lift Young up but Young hits him with a low blow!
Shannan Lerch: Oh come on.
All of a sudden, the Texas Championship begins to descend from the ceiling, as if this was a ladder match.
Zach Davis: WHAT THE!?
Shannan Lerch: The Texas Championship! What is going on!?
Young looks up and sees his beloved Texas Championship. The belt is lowered until it just might be within jumping distance. Young reaches up and tries to jump for it, but can't quite reach. Getting angry, Young climbs up the turnbuckle and jumps off, attempting to grab it that way, and again he can't quite reach it. This diversion, however, gives Slane the chance to grab Young again by the legs, drop him, and put him back in the Inverted Cloverleaf!
Zach Davis: He has it locked in, right in the middle of the ring!
Finally the pains too much for Young as he’s forced to tap out to the clover leaf!
Shannan Lerch: And Slane gets the win for all his little scouts out there.
Zach Davis: Slane will be moving up in the ranks of WCF, the already popular Slane, just added another win to his resume.
Slane lets go of the hold and gets his arm raised. Young stumbles up and attempts to get the belt back, but the belt is now raised back into the ceiling from whence it came. Young kicks the turnbuckle angrily.
Shannan Lerch: Adam Young gets another chance to fight Corey Black at XIII, can't wait for that! And I'm sure Adam Young can't either.
American Capitalist by Five Finger Death Punch is blasted through the arena. After the intro of the song is finished, the pyro starts blasting out everywhere in the arena. The ramps, the stage, the ring, titantron, everything in the arena. Coming out from backstage is Joel Hall. The crowd starts to cheer for his arrival. He walks down the ramp and jumps on the canvas. Then, he rolls into the ring and looks at the crowd. He gives the devil horns sign.
Zach Davis: Here is "Xtreme Fear" Joel Hall!
"Clock" by Beck begins playing over the loudspeakers as the curtain parts... and out comes Kid Phantasm. He runs to the ring and slides in, going right on the attack, beginning to brawl with Joel Hall!
Shannan Lerch: If you didn't know better, this looks like Kid Phantasm has some personal grudge with Hall and he wants to kick his ass. But that is not the case; he just wants this match to end so he can rescue Nightmare.
Kid throws Hall to the ropes and kicks him in the gut. He positions him for the Ice Cap!, but Hall fights his way out of it and swings with a wild right hook, catching Kid in the jaw and sending him reeling back.
Zach Davis: If Kid Phantasm tries to finish this match TOO early and gets careless, however, like we just saw, he's going to give Joel Hall an opening.
Hall then runs at Kid and executes a Hurricanrana, into the pin!
No, Kid Phantasm kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: Kid won't lose the People's Title easily - besides Nightmare, it means more to him than anything.
Hall gets up and Kid gets to his feet as well. Kid goes for a kick but Hall catches his foot and executes a Dragonscrew Legwhip! Kid goes down, clutching his knee. Hall runs to the ropes, Springboards, and then lands with a Phoenix Splash onto Kid Phantasm!
Zach Davis: OOF!
Into another pin!
No! Kid Phantasm kicks out again! Hall gets up and begins stomping at him. Hall grabs Kid's leg and puts him into an Ankle Lock!
Shannan Lerch: Ankle Lock! This could be it, Kid Phantasm could give up right now...
But no, Kid is no quitter! He tries desperately to crawl his way to the ropes, and the fans begin to chant his name. Hall ignores it, focusing entirely on keeping the Lock applied. But eventually, right before Kid would risk a broken ankle... he reaches the ropes! The crowd cheers as the ref instructs Hall to break the hold.
Zach Davis: That was a close call if I've ever seen one! We almost had a new People's Champion.
Hall lets go of Kid's leg, but then pulls him into the center of the ring. He kicks him repeatedly in the thigh. He then goes to put Kid Phantasm into a Grapevine, but Kid knows that could be the end, and quickly kicks Hall away. Hall rushes Kid, hesitating for one brief second as he seems to spot someone in the crowd. In that one brief second, Kid wraps Hall up in a Small Package out of nowhere!
Shannan Lerch: Kid Phantasm retains!
Zach Davis: Kid using the element of surprise to his advantage here tonight.
Hall stands up, a look of shock on his face. Kid Phantasm grabs his People's Title and rolls out of the ring, limping up the ramp and presumably, towards Nightmare.
Shannan Lerch: Go get her, Kid!
We go to commercial.
Joel Hall is in the locker room, eyes staring at the mirror. It had looked like he had seen a ghost.
Joel Hall: I thought I saw her... It must be her... but I can't seem to be sure...
He remembered he had seen a familiar face in the crowd. Not wasting time though, he gets up and leaves.
He is walking towards the parking lot. He takes out his keys and gets on his motorcycle. Suddenly, "HE" arrives.
"HE": Leaving so soon?
Joel Hall: Fuck off, dipshit.
"HE": Remember this, Joel. The Iowan Massacre has just begun.
Joel had flipped the bird at "HIM" before speeding off towards the exit.
Zach Davis: Right now we're waiting for the big tag team match between Eric Price teaming up Jonathan Jakobs taking on the self proclaimed team of Drama, Johnny Stylez and Tommy Kain
Kyles’s voice speaks above the shouts of the crowd until the camera finally comes to rest on the announce team.
Zach Davis: There's quite a bit at stake in this match, if Eric Price or Jonathan Jakobs get's a win over Stylez, the could be in line for a shot at the internet championship.
Shannan Lerch: Not only that, put a win here puts either team one step closer to Michael Santiago and Ryan Blake, two thirds of the Alliance, for the world tag team titles.
Zach Davis: No doubt Santiago and Blake will be watching this match closely.
Shannan Lerch: Let’s send it to our ring announcer Kyle Steel.
Kyle Steel is standing mid-ring as the fans await the introductions to this tag team match up.
Kyle Steel: Ladies and Gentleman, our next match is scheduled for one fall with a 20 minute time limit, under standard tag team rules...
The crowd cheers – they already know who the combatants will be – they hold up signs and banners of all shapes ands sizes showing whom their favorites, and not so favorites, are.
Kyle Steel: Introducing first, the challengers, weighing in at the combined weight of 465 lbs, they're the team of Eric Price,
"the Daredevil" Jonathan Jakobs
"Back in Black" from AC/DC blares throughout the arena, cueing instant heat from the crowd for Price, and a strong surge of cheers for Jakobs. Both men make their way to the ring, Jakobs visibly not comfortable with the crowd reaction, as well as being teamed up with Price. Making their way to the ring, Price not appreciating Jakobs taking time out for the fans to shake hands and high five.
Zach Davis: Jakobs and Price definitely an odd pairing. And apparently not all too comfortable with teaming up together it seems.
Shannan Lerch: Wow you sure have a flair for the obviouse, did they teach you that in announcers school?
Totally ignoring the snide comment Zach brings the fans attention back to the ring. Where Price and Jakons are already arguing over who is going to start.
Zach Davis: Already problems brewing for that pairing. Their going to have to get on the same page if they hope to take that step closer to championship gold.
Kyle Steel: Introducing next, their opponents, Weighing in at a combined weight of 473 pounds, they are the Internet champion
LA Johnny Styles
And his partner
Cold by Crossfade plays over the loud speaker as the crowd stands wholly united as they rain down boos and catcalls. Kain and Stylez ignore them making their way to the ring.
Zach Davis: It looks like the referee appears to be ready to get this one going.
Shannan Lerch: He's gonna have his hands full tonight for sure! At last, this place is about to explode!
The referee is ready to get down to business, and calls for the bell-
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Jonathan Jakobs and Johnny Styles start the match, After a short huddle in their respective corners. Jakobs steps through the ropes to start things off for his team, but Styles hesitates when he sees Jakobs step into the ring. After a moment of hesitation, Styles turns back into his corner and quickly tags Tommy. The crowd jeers as Styles steps behind Kain and begins taunting the rowdy WCF fans at ringside.
Zach Davis: It appears that the internet champ has some qualms about squaring off against the Daredevil.
Shannan Lerch: Nah, I think he's just playing mind games with him. On the other hand, Tommy Kain seems more than ready to take on Jonathan Jakob there.
Zach Davis: Listen to the roar of this sold out crowd. In the ring right now are crowd favorite Jakobs, and the fans are solidly on his side.
Eventually, The two circle each other for a moment before Kain extends his hands, offering Jakobs a test of strength, Jakob replies with a withering look and cranks out a series of raunchy crotch chops drawing a huge pop. Kain turns to kick the bottom rope in frustration. Jakob smiles, cheering the crowd to get louder, taking his eyes off Kain for just a brief second – and as he does, Kain sees the opening, darts in and gets things started with a swift kick to Jakobs midsection that doubles him over.
He takes advantage of the opening to fire a stiff kick that catches Jakobs on the side of the head as he straightens up, and as he staggers back from the sudden onslaught, Kain finishes the onslaught with a running dropkick to Jakobs – which he barely manages to evade by sidestepping and catching his leg!
He holds Kains leg captive and gives him a mischeivious grin as Kain hops on one foot. Jakons follows through with a whiplashing foot sweep that sends Kain crashing to the mat. The cheering WCF fans roar with excitement as he quickly bounces off the ropes then suddenly halts in mid-stride to taunt Kain with a series of raunchy crotch chops drawing a huge pop! Then afterwards he executes an extaordinary Rolling Thunder type senton-bomb crashing hard on Tommy Kain, taking the wind out of his opponent, then pops back to his feet.
Zach Davis: Wow! Did you see the height on that rolling senton splash?!
Shannan Lerch: Whatever, Jakons is such a show off!
Jakobs picks up Kain, then crushes him with a textbook suplex driving him hard to the mat. Then he quicklky follows up his technical assault with a series of well measured elbow drops into his sternum. Not finished yet, Jakobs helps Kain up, muscling him into the corner and beats him down with a 3 piece combo. First he staggers him with a Jumping Roundhouse Kick to the face. Then he catches him with a Reverse Cresent Kick to the midsection causing him to fall, slouching down into a seated position. Now Jakobs slowly backs out, measuring his seated opponent before tumbling forward into a Rolling Senton Splash. He completely crushes him by cannonballing himself into the corner with amazing highflying style and grace...
Then he drags his hurt opponent the center of the ring. Price yells for a hot tag as Jakob begins to entertain the cheering WCF fans by waving his hands in the air, as if signalling the end was near.
Before he can further his attack, Price reaches in slapping Jakobs on the shoulder. Jakob quickly turns around, startled, the two get into an arguement. The ref steps in, trying to get Jakobs to step out of the ring, but Jakobs is steadfast in staying in. As the three argue, Styles thinks quickly, takes the opportunity to sneak in, grab his partner and pull him to their corner. As Jakobs, Price and the ref try to sort things out, the crowd goes nuts watching Styles sneak up on Price. Grabbing Price from behind, he nails the
the ref begins the count
Jakobs breaks up the count with a visciouse double axe handle to the back of Styles. As the ref gets jakobs back to his corner, Styles mock him. As the two exchange words Price comes to, and takes advantage of Stylez momentary lapse of attention with a schoolboy roll up for a pin
Styles kicks out. He rolls out away from Price towards his corner making a quick tag to Kain. kain runs into the ring and floors Price with a dropkick. Kain gets back to his feet. Another dropkick! kain gives the fans a taste of his disdain by spitting on Price for good measure before landing a fist drop.
Zach Davis: I hate that guy!
Shannan Lerch: Come now! He’s just excited!
Kain pulls Price to his feet. He locks in a front facelock, but Price reverses it into a double-leg takedown. He peppers kains’s face with forearm shots followed by a legdrop. Pulling him up, only to send him back down with an implant DDT.
Price then whips kain into the corner and tags in Jakobs. Price slaps on a front facelock as Jakobs drops an elbow onto kain's back.
Zach Davis: Looks like Price and Jakobs are finally working as a cohesive unit.
Shannan Lerch: Well duh. Championship opportunities are on the line here.
As Kain drops to the mat, Jakob hammers him with stomps. Kain tries to roll away, but gets a boot to the gut for his efforts. Jakobs pulls Kain up and pounds him with forearms. Kaingoes crashing to the mat after a pumphandle slam from Jakobs. Hayes hooks both legs for the pin, and the crowd roars it's approval for Jakobs,
Kain gets a shoulder up. Jakobs yanks him to his feet and swings with a hard right. Kain ducks! He slides behind Jakobs and locks in a half nelson. Kain leaps into the air and slams Jakobsinto the mat with a half nelson bulldog. The crowd lets rip with a loud chorus of boos against Kain
With Jakobs on the mat, Kain hurries to his corner to make the tag. But Jakobs manages to get up and cut him off with a body block. The Daredevil Kain by the legs and pulls him into the center of the ring. He hooks both of Kain's arms around his legs and slaps on a chinlock to apply a textbook camel clutch. Kain fights with all his might, grabbing onto Jakob's hands to keep him from pulling back. Before Jakob's can fully apply the hold, Kain worms his head out of the chinlock and scampers out from under him.
Zach Davis: That was a close one! If Jonathan had locked that move in, it would have been all over for Kain!
Shannan Lerch: Kain is tough as nails. It's gonna take more than that to put him away!
Jacob's follows, but is met with a mule kick. Jaobs is knocked back, but uses his reach to grab hold of Kain's leg right before he tries to tag in Stylez. As the two get back to their feet, Jakobs grabs Kains wrist pulling Kain in for a short-arm clothesline.
But Kain ducks! He slams a boot into Hayes’s stomach, followed by a spinning right punch to the head. A second spinning punch from the other direction! Double axe handle to the back! As Jakobs hits the mat, Kain leaps high into the air and crashes down with a leg drop to the Daredevil's neck.
As the crowd jeers, Kainr hops up and makes the tag. Just as Jacob's gets to his feet, he’s met with a flurry of knees from an invigorated Johnny styles, capped off with an enziguiri. Price yells at Jacobs trying to cheer him on as Jacobs crumples to his knees. Styles bounces off the ropes behind him and comes at Jacobs with a shining wizard. Stylez makes the cover.
The crowd erupts in cheers as Jacobs kicks out. Styles pulls him up but gets clobbered with a hard right hand. As the internet champ staggers back, Jacob hurries to the corner and makes the tag. Styles makes chase, but is seconds too late, as Jacobs slaps Price’s hand.
No matter. Before Price can go between the ropes, Styles cheap shots Price with a low blow just out of the refs line of view. Picking Price up over his shoulders, Styles drops Price with an inverted death valley driver.
Zach Davis: Hey, that’s the…
Shannan Lerch: That’s Eric Price's finisher!
Zach Davis: I guess Johnny Styles has being using his internet championship connections to study up on his opponents.
Jakobs enters the ring and kicks Styles off! Kain enters the ring next and runs at Jakobs, Jakobs hits a Back Bodydrop sending Kain to the outside. Jakobs then grabs Stylez, who was stumbling up, and takes him down with a Twist of Fate! Price is in position to lock Stylez into a Sharpshooter...
Shannan Lerch: Could this be it!?
Yes! Stylez is forced to tap out!
Zach Davis: Eric Price and Jonathan Jakobs pick up the victory!
The referee raises Price and Jakobs' arms in the air as their music begins to play. Kain slides back into the ring to check on Stylez.
Shannan Lerch: But I'm quite sure the Internet Champion will live to fight another day.
As Jakobs and Price leave, Priest enters the ring from out of nowhere!
Zach Davis: What the...
Priest has a chair, and he blasts Tommy Kain with it! Kain is sent sprawling. Priest leaves the ring and smiles at the pain he's caused.
Shannan Lerch: Priest isn't a fan of Tommy Kain, I guess! And he just showed him that. With a chair.
The camera is following Kid Phantasm through the depths of the WCF arena. Taking a deep breath, Kid opens the door...
Zach Davis: THERE SHE IS!
Nightmare is tied to a chair, gagged, bloody, bruised and beaten. But alive. Kid Phantasm rushes in, pulling a box cutter out of his pocket and quickly cutting off the ropes that are binding his girlfriend. Nightmare's eyes show that she can barely believe she's finally being rescued after all these weeks.
Kid Phantasm: I'm sorry, I'm so sorry..
After cutting Nightmare free, Kid reaches up and finally undoes her gag as well. Nightmare's eyes go wide.
Nightmare: BEHIND YOU!
And, of course, here comes Nathan von Liebert behind Kid, clocking him right in the back of the head! Nightmare screams in terror, scurrying back against a wall, her eyes wide with fright. Kid struggles to get to his feet and fight back, but his leg is still hurting from his match earlier. Nathan delivers another stiff punch right to Kid's head, busting him open.
Shannan Lerch: It was a trap all along! We should've known!
Nathan LAUGHS as Kid Phantasm begins to get up, blood dripping from his forehead. Nathan is gone, presumably, this is Vlad now. Nathan runs foreward and delivers a stiff boot, yet another shot to the head of Kid Phantasm, splattering Kid's blood onto Nightmare, who is still screaming. Nathan mounts Kid and delivers punch after punch to Kid's face, attempting to turn it into mush.
Zach Davis: Somebody, please, stop this... security? Come on....
The sound of Nathan's laughing mixes with the sounds of Nightmare's terrified screams. Once Kid is definitely unconscious, Nathan von Liebert stands up.. and grabs Kid's nearby People's Title. The belt is, of course, smeared with Kid's blood. Nathan puts the belt over his shoulder, grinning like a madman.
Nathan von Liebert: Kid Phantasm, you wanted Nightmare back? You got her! Monsters, Inc. has used her all up anyway!
Nathan spits in Nightmare's direction.
Nathan von Liebert: But I'm not just going to give something back without taking something else away! And I'll be damned if you're getting your stupid belt back!
Finally, Nathan begins walking away, leaving an unconscious Kid Phantasm and Nightmare, in whatever state she must be in, in his wake.
“F U Pay Me” by Tech N9ne plays over the sound system as Blake Updegraff IV struts out from behind the curtain, followed closely by his clients: Benjamin Atreyu, and Gein Spector. Blake throws his hands to the sky, and small green slips of paper begin to fall like confetti. The fans shower the men with boos when they realize the fake hundred dollar bills have Blake's face on them
Kyle Steel: Now coming to the ring, accompanied by Blake Updegraff IV, Benjamin Atreyu, and Gein Spector: FUTURE GODS INCORPORATED!
The fans scream for blood as the three men smile. Blake climbs the steps first, and holds the ropes open for his wrestlers. All three men walk to the middle of the ring and revel in the jeers from the crowd as their music dies.
“Orion” by Metallica hits the sound system and the crowd cheers as Hank Lane and Tek emerge from behind the curtain and onto the entrance ramp.
Kyle Steel: Coming to the ring, the team of Hank “Thunder” Lane and Tek, PROPHECY
They make their way down to the ring, one sliding in under the ropes, the other making his way onto the apron and ducking between the top and middle ropes.
Zach Davis: Future Gods Incorporated is coming off a loss from last week while Prophecy is coming off from a solid win. It seems that Blake's team has something to prove going into this match, but with how their luck is heading it wouldn't be crazy to think Prophecy has the advantage.
Tek and Benjamin Atreyu slip to the outside onto the apron as Gein Spector and Hank Lane wait for the bell to ring in their respectful corners. Benjamin Atreyu whispers something into Gein's ear and chuckles.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like both teams are eager to get this match underway.
The bell rings and both men meet up in the center of the ring in a collar elbow tie-up, aggressively pushing against each other. Hank Lane gets the advantage and pushes Gein back into the ropes, but Gein quickly turns it around and gets Hank up against the ropes. The ref quickly intervenes by getting between the two men and pushing Gein off of Hank, Benjamin quickly sneaking down the apron and clubbing Hank across the chest.
Zach Davis: Oh, a cheap sneak attack by Atreyu.
The ref turns around and forces Benjamin back into his corner. As he is distracted, Gein hits Hank with an illegal low blow, sending him to his knees. Gein pulls him over to the ropes, places his throat over the middle rope and places his knee to his back and begins to choke him. The ref turns away from Benjamin and runs over to five count Gein.
Zach Davis: This is disgusting, Future Gods Incorporated are taking turns distracting the ref so the other can get in a few cheap shots.
Shannan Lerch: If the ref doesn't see it he can't call it.
Gein walks over to Hank and pulls him up to his feet. Gein goes for a irish whip, but Hank reverses it and pulls Gein back in for a short-arm clothesline, knock Gein to the mat. Hank keeps his grip on Gein and pulls him back to his feet pulling him in for another short arm clothesline, but Gein ducks the arm and hits Hank with a German Suplex. Gein gets to his feet, walks over to his corner, and tags in Benjamin.
Zach Davis: Looks like Hank is having some trouble against Future Gods Incorporated, if he doesn't getting some good hits in, it might be good night for Prophecy.
Hank rises to his feet as Benjamin approaches, but as Benjamin is about to pull him the rest of the way to his feet, Hank gives a desperate push, sending Benjamin to the corner. He quickly follows it up with a big clothesline.
Shannan Lerch: Oh, a big clothesline into the corner.
Zach Davis: Hank seems to be slowly working his way back, utilizing some resiliency on his part.
Hank slowly makes his way to his corner as Benjamin regains his bearings, Hank tags in Tek.
Zach Davis: Hank manages to get the tag and now its Tek's chance to work the odds back in their favor.
Benjamin and Tek meet at the center of the ring pressing against each other chest to chest. Tek backs up and slaps Benjamin in the face. Benjamin pushes Tek back and Tek back flips landing on his feet, but is met with a clothesline by Benjamin. However Tek lands on his shoulders and kip-up's back to his feet and then quickly hits a enziguri sending Benjamin to the mat.
Zach Davis: Tek is really picking up the pace and showing some smart counters for Benjamin's offense.
Tek turns Benjamin onto his back and jumps through the air and hitting a standing 450 splash, Tek hooks the leg for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: Look at that, Hank illegally entering the ring to shamelessly attack the ALREADY injured Blake Updegraff IV, its disgusting.
Benjamin goes to clothesline Tek, but Tek ducks and as they both turn around Tek goes for a flying kick to the head, but Benjamin ducks down and when Tek hits the mat Benjamin quickly grabs his ankle and locks on and ankle lock.
Shannan Lerch: Benjamin Atreyu showing off his skill as a mat technician, taking the opportunity to lock on that ankle lock.
Tek tries to pull away, but Benjamin keeps a firm grip on the hold refusing to relinquish it. Tek turns himself and kicks Benjamin square in the chest sending him to the mat.
Zach Davis: Benjamin may have the mat skill, but Tek has the ingenuity to think of his feet, in a matter of speaking.
Benjamin still has the ankle lock held tight as he rolls over and works his way back to his feet, Tek tries the same trick again, but as he turns over Benjamin pulls on the hold, lifting Tek off the mat, and then slams him down finally releasing the hold.
Shannan Lerch: Benjamin Atreyu finally releases that ankle lock.
Zach Davis: Yeah, but it looks like its already done detrimental damage to Tek's ankle.
Benjamin pulls Tek to his feet and begins to hit him with a series of elbows to the head. Benjamin grabs Tek's wrist, Tek visibly limping, and pulls him into a hard European uppercut, sending Tek to the floor. Benjamin taunts the crowd.
Zach Davis: Benjamin feeling a bit cocky, taking his time to taunt to the audience.
Benjamin goes to grab Tek's hair, but Tek gives a quick kick to the gut, forcing Benjamin to bend over in pain. Tek jabs Benjamin in the chin, sending him reeling backwards. Tek quickly leaps across the ring and tags in Hank.
Zach Davis: HOT TAG, HANK LEAPS INTO THE RING!
Hank jumps over the rope, runs over and hits Benjamin with a stiff clothesline, he runs over to Gein and knocks him off the ledge. He goes back over to Benjamin as he gets back to his feet. Hank grabs a hold of Benjamin and his with a vertical suplex. Hank gets to his feet, walks over to Benjamin, grabs his arm and starts dropping his knee down on it repeatedly.
Zach Davis: Hank is starting to work over that, probably preparing to lock on that arm bar of his.
Hank drops one more big knee before pulling Benjamin to his feet and locking on an arm bar. Benjamin is writhing in pain as he tries to push Hank off. Hank backs up and bounces off the ropes running across the ring and dropping down on that of the arm of Benjamin, still holding onto that arm bar, really wrenching on it.
Zach Davis: Hank getting revenge for what Benjamin did to Tek earlier with that ankle lock. He is really applying some pressure to that arm bar.
Blake manages to climb back up onto the apron after spending much of this match on his side in pain. The ref quickly runs over to yell for Blake to get off of the apron. As Blake distracts the ref Gein enters the ring and starts driving knees repetitively and bluntly into the side of Hanks head, forming him to let go of the hold. Tek runs into the ring and brings and double axe handle down on the back of Gein. Gein retaliates with some stiff blows to the side of Tek's head and Tek responds with some punches of his own. They begin to duke it out in the ring, but Gein gets the advantage and grabs the back of Tek's head and tosses him out of the ring, quickly running to his side of the ring before the ref sees him.
Zach Davis: The ref really needs to keep his eyes on whats going on in the ring. With Blake out there it is far too easy for any of them to distract the ref and let the other one interfere with the match unfairly.
Benjamin and Hank rise to their feet groggily, slowly realizing where they are. They lock stares and Hank swings and connects with a hard right, Benjamin reels back andd connects with a stiff right of his own. Hank swings again and connects, quickly followed with Benjamin's right. The two men go back and forth until they are straight duking it out in the center of the ring.
Hank gets the upper hand and irish whips Benjamin into the ropes and hits him with a standing drop kick. Benjamin hits the mat and they both slowly raise to their feet, obviously feeling some exhaustion. Benjamin gives Hank and push sending him bouncing against the rope and he is met with a back elbow from Benjamin.
Zach Davis: Hank gets hit with a hard back elbow from Atreyu, can he capitalize?
Benjamin stands still for a moment, contemplating going for the pin, but walks over to Gein instead and tagging him in. Benjamin reaches over and pulls Hank to his feet. Gein and Benjamin back up and bounce against opposite ropes, hitting Hank with a clothesline and chop block combination. Benjamin slips out of the ring and Gein goes for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: Oh, a vicious curb stomp from Gein.
Gein unhooks his leg and begins to pull Hank to his feet, but Hank his Gein with a elbow to the gut and then hits Gein with a drop kick to the side of the head, sending him to the mat. Hank staggers over to Tek and tags him in and Tek leaps onto the top rope, waiting for Gein to get to his feet.
Zach Davis: Tek going to the top, what high risk maneuver does he had up his sleeve?
Gein gets to his feet and looks up to see Tek as he jumps of the top rope and goes flying through the air. He lands on Gein, sitting on his shoulders, he reels back and hits Gein with a Hurricanrana.
Zach Davis: FLYING HURRICANRANA FROM TEK!
Tek goes for the pin.
Zach Davis: MIDWEST NAIL!!!
Gein walks over to his corner and tags Benjamin in. They walk over to Tek and pull him to his feet. Gein lifts him up into the Spinebuster position and Benjamin hits the Black Eye Sonata and Gein slams Tek down in a Spinebuster.
Zach Davis: FOOD FOR THE GODS! FOOD FOR THE GODS!
Gein slips out of the ring and Benjamin goes for the pin.
Kyle Steel: YOUR WINNERS, FUTURE GODS INCORPORATED!
Elena Siegman “115” begins playing into the speakers.
Zach Davis: Oh snap, someone collected all the meteor rocks on Kino Der Toten.
Shannan Lerch: Uh what?
Zach Davis: Nevermind. Who is this anyway?
”BRING ME 115!!!”
Noob Cha-Cha walks out onto the stage. She is wearing a dark blue leather pants and a matching vest. Her mask covers the upper part of her face and most of the bottom giving off a ninja style impression. Some of the smart fans whom have already heard of her begin to cheer while Cha-Cha walks down the ramp and looks over them. She slides underneath the bottom rope, stepping to her feet and climbing up a turnbuckle. She remains there perched on the middle turnbuckle rope peering out over the audience. A ring official steps into the ring with a microphone in his hand. Noob Cha-Cha turns furious eyes into his direction and hops down, jumping up, and sending a boot to the side of the referees head.
Shannan Lerch: She just kicked the referee in the face!
Zach Davis: I believe that’s called getting Cha-Cha’d.
Noob Cha-Cha reaches down beside the downed ring official and picks up the microphone.
Noob Cha-Cha: My first ever entrance in the WCF and you have the gall to make yourself a part of it.
She picks him up, leans him into the ropes, lets him stumble out and hits him with another Cha-Cha’d. The crowd pops for some reason or another.
Noob Cha-Cha: Let’s see if that happens again, and if it does then next time I’ll take you home with me and feed you to my pet alligators.
Zach Davis: Cha-Cha has pet alligators?! That’s awesome.
Noob Cha-Cha: Hello to the ones here and the few dozen or so watching at home. Noob Cha-Cha realizes that you are all in dire need of something more entertaining than another stable war between rivaling circus clowns. There is a solution to your boredom and I call it.. fun. Who wants to have fun?
She raises the microphone into the air to highlight the crowd’s enthusiasm.
Noob Cha-Cha: Noob Cha-Cha thought so.
She hops over the top rope perfectly landing on her feet to the outside like a cat.
Shannan Lerch: Where is Cha-Cha going?
Noob Cha-Cha climbs over the guard rail separating her from the audience and is met with screaming excitement and grabby hands.
Noob Cha-Cha: Don’t touch.
She takes her time observing some of the fan members, selecting one out and approaching him.
Noob Cha-Cha: What’s your name?
Cha-Cha holds the microphone to the fans face, pushing the cushion of the microphone right into his lips. He retracts back some because of this and gives Cha-Cha a weird look but ultimately answers.
Bill: Bill! My name is Bill!
Noob Cha-Cha: Who is your favorite wrestler here?
Bill: Wooo! Steve Orbit!
Noob Cha-Cha: I said wrestlers, not Cha-Cha errand boys.
The Cha-Cha was pleasantly amused with herself, leaning back, holding her stomach, and over dramatically laughing.
Bill: I’d like to say hey Mo-
She removed the microphone away from his face and approached another fan member. This one was wearing a Jay Price t-shirt.
Noob Cha-Cha: What’s your name?
Jack: You can call me Jack!
Noob Cha-Cha: Okay, Jack. You like Jay Price?
Noob Cha-Cha reached forward touching the chest of his shirt that had a picture of Jay Price on it.
Jack: I DO!
Noob Cha-Cha: I’m new here so correct me if I’m wrong. Isn’t he the guy who complains about backstage problems while he’s in the ring?
Jack: Yeah.. well, last week..
Noob Cha-Cha: There are bigger problems at large than his worries of corrupt management. Do you think he knows about the fish on Hall F?
Noob Cha-Cha: It’s a tank full of dead floating fish on Hall F. I tried to kick one in the face to bring it back to life though nothing happened except for the addition of guts on my boot heel.
Jack: What does that have to do with Jay Price?
Noob Cha-Cha: Huh? That doesn't seem like a major backstage complaint?
Jack: Fuck your fish.
She kicked him in the face and moved on to the next fan.
Noob Cha-Cha: What is your name?
This one seemed very calm.
Noob Cha-Cha: And who does George adore?
George: I like Hunter Valentyne.
Noob Cha-Cha: Why?
She turned her back to the idiot and began walking back towards the guard rail while speaking into the microphone.
Noob Cha-Cha: By next week all these signs and shirts will change.
Cha-Cha climbed over the guard rail.
Noob Cha-Cha: You will all eventually pay homage to Noob Cha-Cha.
And slid back into the ring.
Noob Cha-Cha: I’m not demanding that you do, it will be irresistible. It will not be helped. Noob Cha-Cha is too much good to turn your heads from. The thing is; is that I don’t have any opponents lined up for next week. I can’t not blame the cowards for fearing Noob Cha-Cha, someone has to step up to the plate though, and who that may be remains to be a mystery. Is there someone back there that can match my cha-charisma and skill to face me in this ring?
“Something In Your Mouth” by Nickelback plays over the speakers and Noob Cha-Cha grins.
Zach Davis: That’s Hunter Valentyne’s music!
However Hunter does not come out.
Noob Cha-Cha: Do we really have to play his music? He can’t just come out? I do not like this song –
Shannan Lerch: WATCH OUT CHA-CHA!
Hunter has snuck up from behind, grabbing Noob Cha-Cha and hitting her with a german suplex. Cha-Cha flies backwards, losing the microphone in mid-air, and landing on her back. Noob Cha-Cha tries to quickly get to her feet to go on the offensive but Hunter is already on her, kicking her in the gut and hitting a Valentyme!
Zach Davis: No! Not like this. She didn’t deserve this!
Noob Cha-Cha is down and out. Hunter Valentyne picks up the microphone and looks down to Cha-Cha.
Hunter Valentyne: You want to play with the boys? I’ve got a match for you, bitch. Next week, you and me.. HARDCORE MATCH!
Hunter dropped the microphone on her face while the crowd filled the arena with massive booing.
Shannan Lerch: He’s such a bastard.
Zach Davis: You know Noob Cha-Cha is going to be furious about this when she recovers. Man, I can’t wait to see that hardcore match between these two next week!
Kyle Steel: Ladies and gentlemen, the following match is a one fall, to the finish, triple threat rematch!!
The crowd gives it's approval, the cheers ring out like a wave. Once they have quieted down, Kyle continues
Kyle Steel: First coming to the ring, he hails from Staten island, New York. weighing in tonight at 239 and 3/4 pounds, he is
Black Charisma" Michael Santiago
"King of my World" by brings the fans back to their feet. Red strobe lights flood the entrance ramp. The silhouette of a man fills the tunnel, finally Michael Santiago emerges, smiling as he soaks in a mixture boos and cheers from the crowd as he makes his way down the ramp towards the ring. 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.
Shannan Lerch: Well here we go again. Guess Terry didn't learn from the first time. Went and got a rematch, guess he's getting to liking this losing streak he's on.
Zach Davis: He's definitely got his hands full. It appears he thinks he not only thinks he's figured out the Alliance, but that he's also got their number.
Shannan Lerch: Well tonight he's got a chance to prove that.
Back in the ring, "King of my world" has died down. The fans await eagerly the next arrival. Their wait is short. Kyle Steel brings the mic back up for the next introduction.
Kyle Steel: The next opponent for this triple threat match hails from Trenton New Jersey. Weighing in tonight at 170 pounds.
"The Hero" Ryan Blake
The Crowd once again stands up, waves of cheers and boos once again fill the arena, quickly drowns out by "To be Loved" by Papa Roach. A spot light on the stage heralds Ryan Blake, as he steps out on the stage of the arena and begins to run down the ramp. He then slides on his stomach into the ring, quickly rising 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, the fans pop for it, he hops down before heading to the opposite turnbuckle, and does the same on the opposite corner turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: And there we have two thirds of the Perfect alliance. If Terry does, as he says he does, know how to defeat these two stellar athletes, he definitely has his work cut out for him.
Shannan Lerch: Really? Have you seen Ryan Blake? I think Terry takes craps bigger than him!
Zach Davis: SHANNAN
Shannan Lerch: WHAT? Just saying!
Zach Davis: Need i remind you, it was Ryan Blake whom pinned Terry in the first match.
Shannan humphs Zack, rolling her eyes. As the fan noise reaches a level to the liking of Kyle Steel, he finishes the last of the introductions. Reading off cue from the card in his hand, he shrugs then takes the mic to his lips one last time.
Kyle Steel: The last opponent of this match, hails from the Darkside, by way of Birmingham Alabama. Weighing in tonight at 282 and a half pounds, he is
Michael and Ryan stand back to back in the center of the ring. Remembering his sneak in the dark style entrance from their last match, they circle the ring, never leaving the others back exposed, sharp eyes peeled for any signs of their opponent.
"Swamped" By Lacuna Coil blares from the loudspeakers, the fans give a mixture of cheers and boos, more boos than cheers mostly, as the arena goes dim, red and black laser lights zig and zag all over as red strobe lights create an almost rock concert feel. Ryan and Michael, having a hard time seeing into the crowd through the dim arena and dizzying lights display, try and locate Terry, their search doesn't take long as a commotion coming from the right side of the announce table heralds Synn's presence.
Michael is the first to spot it, he leans back, tapping Ryan on the shoulder and pointing towards the direction he spotted their opponent. Know knowing the location, they take defensive stances, watching as Synn reaches the guardrails. The fans are going crazy, security race over moving the rails just enough to let Synn through to the ringside area before quickly closing so as fans cannot enter as well.
Shannan Lerch: Gotta give the guy he knows how to make an entrance. I almost wanna throw my panties into the ring.
Zach stumbles over his words looking at Shannan in shock as she winks and smiles half innocently half not. Terry takes several steps up to the ring, sizing up his opponents before making his way to the ring steps. Taking each one slowly, building the anticipation, smiling with glee as he watches his opponents, he reaches out, touching two of his fingers to his lips, pulling them away quickly a massive fireball flows past the ringpost and over the ring. Ryan and Michael both flinch, getting antsy.
Fans can sense they are ready for a fight, and so are they. Terry, still playing his mindgames, slowly steps between the ropes, tired of waiting, Ryan and Michael take the initiative.
Both charge Terry as Kyle Steel literally jumps out of the ring. The time keeper frantically rings the bell signaling the start of the match. Wasting no time taking advantage of the opening, Michael flurry punches Terry, keeping him trapped in the corner while Ryan starts running across the ring, Michael takes Synn's hand, twisting it over his head in an armbar twist, he then whips Synn out of the corner straight at Ryan who hits him with a clothesline. Terry tries to stay on his feet, but the momentum of the clothesline by Ryan knocks him onto his back.
Momentarily stunned, the Alliance members waste no tine capitalizing on the quick advantage. Ryan takes a step back allowing Michael, the better brawler who's size more evenly matches up with Synn's. Santiago grabs a hand full of Terry's long dark hair, pulling him him screaming in his painted face that he made a big mistake taking on the Alliance again, reaches back and slaps Synn flush across his cheek. The move does nothing more than cause Synn's head to move with the force of the blow. Synn's eyes grow wide, a sadistic smile crawls over his face.
Shannan Lerch: Oh, it looks like Black Charisma got Synn's attention on that one.
Zach Davis: I don't know, it's not a smart move to enrage a man like Synn.
Shannan Lerch: It's a calculated move i would wager. An angry man is not a clear thinking man. He is more likely prone to make mistakes, and against either Santiago or Blake, that can be costly, let alone in their with BOTH.
Terry stands up to his full 6 feet 5 inches, looking down on Santiago like a huntsman about to strike down his prey. Santiago slowly backs away. It was a ruse, just at the right moment, Santiago leaps back. Synn realizes what happened, quickly turns his gaze upon Blake, who is heading straight for him from the second rope with another clothesline.
Synn catches him in mid air, Blake tries to fight out of the bad predicament he suddenly finds himself in, but to no avail. The fans cheer at the feat of strength. Santiago realizes Blake's situation and rushes in to aid his partner. Synn is one step ahead, he swings around, then back, using Blake's feet like a battering ram to knock Santiago down. The crowd erupts again. Blake is screaming, still fighting. With a still crazed look on his face, he swings Blake around, then back, tossing him up and out, then slamming him down on his back in a swinging rock bottom. The air rushes out of Blake, his body wracked with the shock of the blow.
Zach Davis: WOW, Terry taking control from the tag team champs early on. What a display of raw strength on his part.
Shannan Lerch: Gives a whole new meaning to tossing him around like a sack of potatoes.
Zach can't hide his appreciation for the joke, fighting back the urge to laugh. Shannan doesn't seem to notice, her eyes glued to the action in the ring.
Back in the ring. Synn takes a moment to size up the situation. Santiago is starting to get back to his feet, so that becomes his first target. using the same over head twisting arm bar Santiago used against him earlier, Synn nails Santiago with a short arm clothesline that takes him back down hard. Still holding on to Santiago's wrist, Synn jerks him back up to his feet. Tossing the arm over his shoulder, he picks Santiago up in a fireman's carry. The move never gets completed, Ryan gets to his feet and nails Synn with his finisher.
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD! Synn didn't see Ryan get up, and got nailed
Shannan Lerch: OUCH!
Terry drops back, falling on top of Santiago. Seizing the opportunity to clinch a second victory. Ryan rolls Terry over and off of Santiago and into the middle of the ring. Running to the ropes, he hopes onto the second strand and lands a perfect springboard moonsault onto Synn. The ref slides over checking to make sure Synn's shoulders are on the mat, then makes the count
Zach Davis: NOO. Synn kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: Ryan with the early finisher, but maybe a little too soon. Synn looks to have plenty of fight left.
Santiago takes over with with a double axehandle to the back of Synn.Synn scrambles to get to his feet. He barely makes it just as Santiago hits a textbook drop kick. Ryan, who has now climbed up to the top turnbuckle, hits a textbook flying body press, both wrestlers fall backwords, Ryan hooks a leg as Santiago watchs. The count never starts as Synn kicks out before the ref can even get in position. Santiago presses the advantage. He uses the ropes, rebounding for momentum as he hits a high jumping elbow to Synn, knocking the wind out of him. Quickly hooking a leg he goes for the count.
Zach Davis: So close, he almost had that one.
Shannan Lerch: Close but not close enough. Looks like he's gonna have to try harder to get the win on this one.
Zach Davis: It was supposed to be a triple threat rematch, but it's apparent that Santiago and Blake are working together, making this a dangerous handicap match.
Shannan Lerch: It Synn didn't think this would happen, he didn't plan ahead too well. This is a great opportunity for the tag champs, two thirds of the Perfect alliance to take out DOT's newest member.
Santiago grabs the back of Synns head. picking him up. Ryan comes over standing next to Michael. Both take an arm wrapping it over their heads around their necks. Lifting the big man up they hit him hard with a double suplex. The crowd is getting into it, cheering wildly. With Synn in the middle of the ring, the tag champs look at each other, shaking their heads as if knowing what the other is thinking, Each one rebounds off the ropes. Blake hits a flipping body splash as Santiago nails a flipping let drop. Synns body recoils in pain. Ryan covers as Santiago stands over them, sure that this is the end
Shannan Lerch: OOH, the tag champs nail a double whammy, this isn't looking good i think this may be it.
Synn kicks out, a little less authority, but it's a kick none the less. Ryan and Michael look at each other stunned. The crowd becomes a mixed chorus, cheers for the popular tag team champs, and a growing throng of cheers for Synn, and his defiance against the odds.
Both men take a hand full of their opponents hair, smiling in the knowledge that they had the advantage. Just as they get Synn to his knees, he comes up quick, taking them by surprise, he swings wide for a haymaker, Santiago ducks, but Ryan gets hit with a back elbow as Synn adjusts from the missed haymaker. The crowd starts to really get into it. Synn starts throwing stiff jabs to each Alliance member slowly turning the tide
Zach Davis: OH he's still got fight in him yet.
Santiago quickly stops Synns momentum with a hard kick to the gut, he motions his partner who shakes his head in understanding. Santiago pushes Synn back with several stiff European uppercuts as Blake steps back, preparing for a double team move against their unlucky opponent. Santiago looks back, Blake shakes his head. Santiago then wraps his hand around Synns wrist pulling hard to throw him towards his partner. Synn tightens up, planting his feet using his strong leg muscles to prevent the whip. When Santiago loosens his grip to go for several more blows Synn erupts. Ducking under a Santiago punch he comes face to face with Ryan, he snaps Ryans head back with a monstrous cross, then quickly turns around to avoid another Santiago clothesline, The crowd eats it up and starts cheering on the miraculous comeback.
Shannan Lerch: OOOH wow, How much more does he have left, i mean really?
Zach Davis: He's fighting for survival, he's got alot to prove and the odds are against him, still as hard as he may, i can't believe he alone can beat the world tag team champions.
Synn spins around as does Santiago, face to face. Before Santiago can react, Sin jumps in the air and nails Black Charisma with a flying knee,the move causes Santiago to fall back into Ryan, that momentum causes the two mens head to crash into each other. Santiago stumbles forward, Synn suddenly pops to life nailing Santiago with stiff upper body shots and hard kicks to the lower body, literally cutting him down before rebounding off the ropes with a low dropkick that sends Santiago onto his back.
Zach Davis: And there folks we see what he calls a "machine gun run", he's pulling out all the stops in this one.
Shannan Lerch: Well he has to, anything less and he doesn't stand any chance, the deck is already dangerously stacked against him.
Zach Davis: So true, he's got momentum, but he has to end this, and quick. The longer this match goes, the more it favors the tag team champions.
The Hero charges, trying to cut the comeback short before it gets out of hand. Synn bends down, catching Ryan in his grasp, picking him up and slamming him back down in an inverted atomic drop. Ryan reels from the move, trying to shake off the pain screaming up and down the length of his spine, Synn grabs him. Landing several stiff forearms to the back, softening him up. Synn quickly looks over to Santiago, who is slowly getting back to his feet, with a devilish smile, he throws a back elbow knocking Black Charisma into the turnbuckle
Shannan Lerch: Ow, shut yo' mouth. what a cheap shot.
Zach Davis: Anything is fair to earn that win, isn't it Shannan?
Shannan gives Zach a go to hell look, before returning to the ring action
Terry works over Ryan's back with several more forearm shots, then raises his arm into the air, signaling the end. The crowd gives it's reaction. Still smiling, he grabs Ryan's head, placing it between his legs, then lifting him up onto his shoulders.
Zach Davis: OH no, here comes a powerbomb.
Synn pauses. placing a hand on each leg of Ryan. lifting him up off his shoulders, throwing the legs out and away from him. The momentum causes Ryan to fall forward, Synn catches him wrapping his arms around Ryan's body, twisting over into a Double A style spinebuster.
The crowd pops hard for this, Ryan has the breath completely knocked out of him, and the pain nearly incapacitates him. Synn leans back on his knee's looking over the motionless body of Ryan Blake. before he can go for the pin, Santiago comes running hard. nailing him with a low clothesline. throwing in some kicks for good measure Synn spins around, throwing hay makers back. Each haymaker causes Santiago to stumble back, but he comes back with one of his own.
Shannan Lerch: OH LOOKY, a macho dick waving contest, how freaking cute!
Zach shakes his head
Zach Davis: What we have here is a good old down and dirty slug out, Santiago is definitely holding his own against the larger Synn.
Shannan Lerch: HA! you said he was holding his own!
Zach Davis: Really Shannan? really?
Synn is winning, Santiago doesn't have much left. In a last ditch effort, he ducks another Synn haymaker, kicking him the gut. The force of the blow causes Synn to bend over in pain. Santiago grabs him in a headlock,and goes to drop down backwards in a d.d.t. His face turns into horror when he suddenly stops short of hitting the mat.
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD WILL YOU LOOK AT THIS DISPLAY OF POWER!!
Shannan Lerch: Wow, Synn just used sheer raw brute power to stop Santiago dead in the middle of a d.d.t, have you ever seen any fucking thing like that?
Both announcers look on in utter shock, the crowd goes ape shit nuts, cheering Synn's inhuman display of power, theirs not a single person sitting in their chair as they voice their approval.
No one is in bigger shock than Santiago. He looks around in desperation as he feels Synn power him back up, wrapping his massive arms around his back. In a last ditch sheer panicked attack, he throws several vicious elbows to the head of Synn. The move works, Sensing Synn is stunned, he throws all of his weight back, finally dropping Synn with a d.d.t. Unexpectedly though, Synn drops right on top of Santiago shoulder first, driving the wind out of him.
Zach Davis: Did Synn counter that? or did Santiago flub the move?
Shannan Lerch: Probably both, you know, what with all the holding themselves and all.
Shannan smirks at Zach as he glares at her bad attempt for a joke.
In the ring, the ref checks all three competitors. Ryan is still not moving, but breathing. Santiago is writhing in pain, trying to catch his breath, and Synn is just laying there with a shit eating grin on his face, making people wonder if the fuckers even sane. taking a position he can keep an eye on all three wrestlers he begins the count.
Ryan starts showing signs of life. Santiago, holding his stomach, starts crawling to the ropes, Synn is still lying there with that fucked up grin on his face.
Ryan starts his way towards the rope. Santiago grabs the bottom strand of the nearest one to him, and begins the arduous task of lifting himself up to beat the count.
Ryan reaches the bottom rope nearest to him. By this point Ryan Blake and Michael Santiago are neck and neck. Synn rolls over, placing his hands on the mat, in an attempt to power his way up.
Zach Davis: I don't know about you Shannan. but i would hate to see these guys give their all just to end in a count out.
Shannan Lerch: It's anybodies match right now, it could all come down to who gets up first.
Synn uses all his strength to roll over onto Santiago.
Blake begins to get up..
Blake is to his feet! He doesn't see anyone else standing and thinks he's won simply by beating the ten count.
Zach Davis: Synn picks up the victory!
Blake is like "whaaaat?" as the ref raises Synn's arm in victory. Blake shakes his head in disappointment before shrugging and grabbing his Tag Title and leaving the ring, pulling Santiago with him, who is just coming to.
Shannan Lerch: Synn may have gotten the win but Blake and Santiago are the ones with the belts.
"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.
Zach Davis: Here comes the challenger for the TV title, Hunter Valentyne!
Shannan Lerch: Valentyne's been on a winning streak, and a victory tonight would be huge for himself and for Drama.
Zach Davis: Yeah, I'm sure they would love to pick up another WCF championship belt to go along with Jonny Stylez Internet belt.
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 continues as the next opponent in introduced.
"Flashlight" by Parlaiment Funkadelic plays over the PA. The arena goes dark and a pink strobe light flashes throughout the arena. Small pink lights swirl around the crowd and the entire arena and eventually converge into one big pink spotlight as "The Mack" Steve Orbit and Golden Joey appear at the top of the aisle. Steve walks ahead of Golden Joey, talking to girls who mostly give him disgusted looks, which he is oblivious to and continues blowing kisses and making rude, sexual comments. At ringside he begins the process of taking off whatever pimp attire he is wearing that night, whether its a mink coat, designer suit, etc and always hands his gold chains and his hat to Golden Joey, who sits in his wheelchair at ringside. Steve continues to "flirt" with the girls in the crowd as he enters the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Here's the TV champ, "The Mack" Steve Orbit.
Zach Davis: The Mack finally got the win over Odin Balfore last week at Blast, after a months worth of setbacks.
Shannan Lerch: After getting the belt back in that brutal matchup last week, I think Orbit will be looking to hold on to the TV title here tonight.
DING DING DING
Shannan Lerch: Here we go, as Hunter Valentyne charges Orbit and takes him down with a running clothesline. The Mack gets up and--
Zach Davis: Another clothesline!
Valentyne lifts up Orbit...
Shannan Lerch: Russian legsweep by Hunter.

Shannan Lerch: Ouch.
Valentyne rolls around on the mat as Orbit runs to the corner. He climbs to the top turnbuckle as Valentyne gets to a knee...
Zach Davis: Flying dropkick by Steve Orbit off the top!
Shannan Lerch: He got some serious air on that one, the pin...
Zach Davis: Kickout before two, Hunter Valentyne's not going down that easy.
Both men get back to their feet. They lock up in the middle of the ring. Valentyne wrenches Orbit's arm. He twists it again before whipping Orbit to the ropes, hitting a belly to belly suplex on the return. Valentyne quickly gets back to his feet, he lifts up Orbit and they lock up again. Valentyne with the quick go-behind and...
Shannan Lerch: German suplex by Hunter Valentyne!
Zach Davis: He's picking up some steam now-- another German suplex!
Orbit is laid out from the back to back suplexes. Valentyne hits the ropes and comes back with a leg drop. He pins Orbit--
Shannan Lerch: Steve Orbit gets the shoulder up.
Both men get back to their feet, and Valentyne continues punishing Orbit with jabs and knees to the midsection. He throws Orbit over the top rope to ringside.

With Orbit on the ground, Valentyne presses his boot on his neck and begins choking him. Orbit flails around on the ground as Valentyne grabs the ropes for more leverage.
Shannan Lerch: The ref is telling Valentyne to back off.
Valentyne walks away as Orbit rolls around on the mat, coughing. Valentyne lifts him up and shoves him into the corner of the ring. He hits Orbit with a few chops and then backs up.
Zach Davis: Hunter Valentyne charges and... Orbit ducks out of the way, he goes head first into the ring post!
Orbit spins him around and...
Shannan Lerch: Pimp slap! (back hand slap followed by a quick jawbreaker)
Orbit covers Valentyne...
Zach Davis: Valentyne kicks out!
Orbit grabs Valentyne's legs and applies a Boston crab.
Shannan Lerch: Submission attempt here by the Mack.
Orbit pulls back on Valentyne's legs as the ref checks the submission. Valentyne resists and resists, refusing to give up.
Zach Davis: Valentyne inching towards the ropes, he's in a world of hurt right now.
Valentyne resists for a few more moments before once again making it to the ropes. The ref instructs Orbit to release the hold. Orbit closes in but Valentyne backs him off with elbow strikes. Valentyne manages to get ahold of Orbit's arm and whip him to the ropes...
Shannan Lerch: Sidewalk slam by Hunter Valentyne!

Zach Davis: OAKLAND SPLASH!!! (somersault senton off the top turnbuckle)
Shannan Lerch: That's a move that the Mack just added to his arsenal, here's the pin and I think this one is history!
DING DING DING
"Flashlight" by Parliament Funkadelic plays over the PA.
Zach Davis: Steve Orbit retains the TV title with a victory over Hunter Valentyne!
Shannan Lerch: Valentyne was impressive tonight but not quite enough to defeat the Mack.
The ref hands Orbit the TV belt and he raises it in the air, smiling. The crowd is mostly boos with a small section of Orbit fans cheering for him.
Orbit's music cuts off.
Zach Davis: Who's that?
Shannan Lerch: What?
Zach Davis: In the crowd, who's that in the crowd? Someone's making their way ringside.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe its a fan of Drama?
Zach Davis: No, no- It's - it IS Drama!
Shannan Lerch: Its Johnny Stylez! He just hopped the barrier.
Zach Davis: And Kain, here comes Tommy Kain from the crowd.
Johnny Stylez and Tommy Kain each take the a side of the ring as Hunter Valentyne takes the other.
Shannan Lerch: Orbit's surrounded.
Zach Davis: He's got the TV title in hand, he's got an equalizer.
"With Oden on our side" hits the PA system.
Shannan Lerch: So much for equalizers.
Zach Davis: Balfore's coming out here now?
Shannan Lerch: Maybe he's gonna cash in that TV title rematch clause.
Zach Davis: Well, with Drama out here, I'm sure that won't be too hard.
Shannan Lerch: Look, Kain and Stylez just stormed the ring!
Zach Davis: So this WAS an attack planed by Balfore!
Steve Orbit starts brawling with Kain, Stylez and Valentyne but the numbers are just too much for him and he is pummeled to the ground. Orbit tries to cover up from the kicks but it's of little help.
Zach Davis: And Balfore just hit the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Dead meat.
Tommy Kain looks over at Balfore and gets a big boot to the face!
Shannan & Zach: WHAT!?
Zach Davis: Odin just helped out Orbit.
Odin pulls Johnny Stylez off of Orbit and throws him out of the ring with ease. Hunter looks up and tries to attack Odin but it's of no use. Finally, Hunter cracks Odin in the face which only seems to anger the big man, who knees him in the gut and presses him out of the ring and at Kain and Stylez who catch him. The three men regroup outside the ring as Steve Orbit makes it to his feet and looks on wearily at Odin Balfore who just glares at him.
Shannan Lerch: This might be ugly.
Suddenly the crowd explodes with cheers.
Zach Davis: Odin Balfore just extended his hand!
Shannan Lerch: Can you blame Steve Orbit for hesitating?
Theres a moment of tension. Will he or Won't he?
Crowd: Or-Bit! Or-Bit!
Zach Davis: YES!
Steve Orbit and Odin Balfore shake hands in the middle of the ring!
Shannan Lerch: Does this mean we have a new member of The Alliance?
Zach Davis: I think it does!
Shannan Lerch: I think the Faction Wars just got a new player in the Alliance!
Balfore and Orbit walk towards the ropes to leave the ring as Drama scatters and escapes into the ground. Balfore and Orbit hit the floor and start to walk up the ramp. "Flashlight" by Parlaiment Funkadelic hits the PA system as we go to commercial.
Zach Davis: Well fans, next we have The Hellbilly Waylon Mercy going up agains Logan.
Shannan Lerch: That's if Logan actually wrestles. He may just call on one of his stable buddies again.
Zach Davis: I highly doubt that. And though it may have been one of the lower highlights of Blast, Darkside of Treachery recruiting Terry Roberts....uh...i mean Synn, did strengthen their numbers.
Shannan Lerch: He gives me the creeps, what's with that face paint? Guys off his rocker i tell ya.
Zach Davis: Maybe so, but now let's go to the ring for introductions.
Kyle Steel: Ladies and gentlemen, the first opponent in this one falls to a finish match hails from Macon Georgia, weighing in tonight at 233 pounds, he is
"The Hellbilly" WAYLON CASH
The opening trumpet riff of "White Trash Renegade blares over the PA systems as red and orange strobe lights flash. Suddenly the strobes stop, and Waylon Cash comes running out onto the entrance ramp. He runs back and forth, eliciting cheers from the crowd on either side before dancing his way towards the ring. Sliding under the bottom rope, Waylon runs and jumps onto the second turnbuckle before tossing his hat out into the crowd. He winks at an attractive woman in the crowd before jumping back down standing in a corner waiting for his opponent.
Zach Davis: The crowd letting it be known they love this guy.
Shannan Lerch: Now just to see who his opponent is.
Zach Davis looks over at Shannan, slightly annoyed, but not too much.
Zach Davis: Uh..it's Logan, of course.
Shannan looks over towards Zach,and chuckles
Shannan Lerch: You sure about that Zach.
Zach Davis: It's on the card, Waylon Cash against Logan. So yeah. What makes you think any different?
Shannan Lerch: Oooh...i don't know. Why don't you ask Famine that?
Zach Davis shakes his head, not wanting to play this silly game.
Zach Davis: Uh well, can't do that Shannan. Famine hasn't been seen since Blast.
Shannan Lerch: Surely wasn't because his opponent was SUPPOSED to be Logan, i'm sure.
Zach Davis is done with this. Focusing again to the introductions
Zach Davis: Will you stop? Forget it, let's get back to the ring.
Back in the ring, Waylon stands in a far corner, watching the ramp waiting for Logan, running his gameplan through his head.
Kyle Steel: And Waylons opponent tonight, comes from Chesapeake Virginia. Weighing in at 251 pounds, he is the face of treachery
Zach Davis: See Shannan. Logan, just like i said.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, i'll hold my breath till the bell rings.
As if being dead serious, Shannan takes in a very deep breath, and holds it in tight. Zach just shakes his head.
Misfits “Hybrid Moments” 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 the ring apron and rolling underneath the bottom rope to pop up onto his feet. The music cuts.
The ref points to Waylon, he nods. The ref turns around, points to Logan, who gives a eerie grin. Satisfied that both wrestlers are ready, he waves his hand, the bell rings.
Shannan takes a deep breath, her face is a slight shade of purple.
Shannan Lerch: I'll be damned.
Zach Davis: Indeed you are.
Shannan Lerch: Screw you Zach.
Logan starts off the match fast by hitting cash with a quick short clothesline
Zach Davis: Logan, taking the quick advantage for the upper hand in the early seconds of the match, I think he just caught Cash off guard right there.
Shannan Lerch: it's a smart move Einstien, Logan controls the match, easier to get the win. Get with the program little man.
Logan picks Cash up, grabbing his wrist Logan tosses Cash in the ropes and then launches him high up into the air with an overhead toss. Logan measures several kicks to Cashs' ribs. Picking the Hellbilly back up, he puts Cash on his shoulders and drops him with a Samoan drop.
Zach Davis: Waylon needs to get his head in the game or this match is going to be really short.
Shannan Lerch: Especially since Logan is the fresher of the two over the last week.
Zach Davis: Will you get off of that already.
Shannan shrugs, smiling at Zach as if saying maybe, maybe not.
Logan grabs a fist full of hair, the ref admonishes him, but Logan just calls him a boudle, telling him to step back. Waylon, taking the opportunity in the slight distraction gets back to his feet fast and fires back at Logan with a few quick left hands followed by a quick European uppercut.
Zach Davis: Cash is quick on his feet. He just dazed Logan with that short flurry.
Cash muscles Logan into a corner, then hits Logan with a knife edged chop 1-2-3-4 times. The fans give out a WHOOO! with each hit.
Shannan Lerch: I can hear those chops up here.
Zach Davis: I can FEEL those chops from here. Ouch, Logans chest already turning an angry red.
Cash takes a few steps back, waving his hand, signaling a round of racause cheers from the fans as he runs into the ropes and hits Logan with a chop block to his knee. Logan falls down to his knees. Cash walks over to Logan and attempts to lock him in some sort of a head lock. Logan fights Cash off and hits him with a gorilla press slam from his knees.
Shannan Lerch: WOW. I don't think I've ever see anything like that before. Logan with an impressive power move, he just man handled Cash.
Zach Davis: People tend to forget, that for Logans age, he is very physically fit. The man is a gym rat.
Logan picks Waylon up, then whips him into the far turnbuckle, following him in with a hard splash in the corner.
Shannan Lerch: Waylon Cash just found out what Road Kill feels like.
Logan takes several steps back as Waylon stumbles forward. Logan smiles wide, then hits him with a sidewalk slam.
Zach Davis: Waylon is in deep, deep trouble here.
Logan, feeling in complete control, works the crowd. Sneering at them as he points a finger at them and then one to the prone Waylon cash and laughs. The crowd loudly boos their dislike. Logan doesn't care. Leaning down to slap Waylon across the face, once, then twice, Logan then drops a standing elbow on dead center on Waylons chest. He quickly gets back to his feet and drops a second elbow. He gets back to his feet and drops a third elbow.
Shannan Lerch: Can you imagine having all of that weight dropping on you three times in a row? He could have just crushed Waylons ribs.
After the third elbow, Logan hooks a leg and covers Cash for the
Zach Davis: Near fall there. Cash survives those nasty elbows, and is able to power out.
Logan lifts Cash to his feet and whips him into the ropes. Cash thinks quickly and catches the top rope with his arms stopping his momentum. Logan, displeased, charges toward Cash with a clothesline that takes both men over the top rope to the floor.
Zach Davis: Ouch. Both men took one heck of a tumble there.
Waylon Cash gets to his feet first and hits Logan with a standing drop kick as Logan gets to his feet. Logan stumbles back into the guardrails, Cash follows up his advantage by slamming Logans head into the guardrail.
Shannan Lerch: Both men want this badly. Cash is showing the intensity that has gotten him this far in WCF.
Cash grabs Logan by his hair and whips him head first into the arena stairs. Logan hits hard and isn't getting up.
Shannan Lerch: Brutal. Waylon Cash taking to the face of treachery.
Zach Davis:A fire in the belly of the Hellbilly, i think the events at Blast has turned things up a notch for Waylon.
Cash grabs a cord off the floor and uses it to choke Logan on the outside.
Shannan Lerch: That's what I like to see. If you want to be a champion here in the WCF you need to be willing to do whatever it takes to win.
Zach Davis: Exacting revenge on Blake Updegraff IV seems to have had a profound effect on Cash, there is a hunger in those eyes. The future gods may have unwittingly unleashed something in him.
Waylon Cash tries to body slam Logan, but can't do it. Logan kicks and flails wildly, forcing Waylon to lose his footing, stumbling backwards. Logan falls down and lands on Cash. Logan wraps a fast headlock on Cash, hitting a serious of clubbing closed fist hammers to the head of the Hellbilly. Feeling that Cash is sufficiently dazed, Logan climbs up on the ring apron and jumps off dropping a knee on Cash's head.
Zach Davis: Logan just flew through the air. Amazing how insane this man is.
Logan climbs to the ring apron, pulling Cash up to the apron with him. Setting up for a Suplex off the ring apron to the floor. Cash reverses the hold with several stiff shots to Logans gut, Logan stumbles back grabbing the top ring post to keep from falling off the apron. Waylon Cash waves his arm around over his head once, and huricanranas Logan off the apron to the floor.
Fans: HOLY sh*! HOLY SH*! HOLY SH*!.
Shannan Lerch: WHAT!?
Zach Davis: OOOHHHH MMHYY GGAAAWWWDDD!!! WHERE THE HELL DID THAT COME FROM?
The ref starts a ten count.
Cash stirs, then rolls under the bottom rope and gets into the ring. He runs to the far corner of the ring and waits for Logan to get to his feet. Once Logan stand vertical, but still stunned, Logan charges across the ring and nails a flying shoulder block through the ropes onto Logan,
Fans: WAYLON CASH!!! WAYLON CASH!! WAYLON CASH!!!
Shannan Lerch: Oh my... I'm speechless.
Zach Davis: Well thats a first.
Waylon tries very hard to lift Logan up to roll him back in the ring. But the dive was a train wreck that took alot out of both men.
Zach Davis: Logan is dead weight right now. Cash is having a hard time lifting him up and into the ring.
Summoning all the strength he has left, Cash uses it in one big surge and finally manages to get Logan into the ring. He immediately locks him in a Texas Cloverleaf submission.
Shannan Lerch: Cash really has that hold locked in right now. Logan is in serious pain. I don't know how much longer he can hold on.
Zach Davis: The fans are really starting to get into this one. They're actually cheering on Logan and he seems to be responding somewhat.
Logan is crawling closer and closer to the ropes to try and break the hold. As he gets closer and closer Cash manages to drag him back into the center of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: I can't imagine he's going to be able to out much longer.
With an amazing display of strength Logan manages to push Cash off with his legs. Cash turns around to face Logan but is quickly taken out when Logan levels him with a massive mule kick
Zach Davis: Logan able to power out of that submission, but the damage has to have already been done.
Shannan Lerch: And getting hit with that kick has got to feel none too good.
Logan climbs to the middle rope, leaping off he drop a massive leg drop on Cash Logan sits on Cash's chest for the pin.
Zach Davis: Near fall right there.
Shannan Lerch: The fans are definitely getting their moneys worth in this match.
Zach Davis: That they are Shannan. Waylon Cash and Logan are letting all hang out.
Shannan laughs. Zach looks at her confused.
Shannan Lerch: I don't think the fans paid to see them let it all hang out.
Zach Davis: Will you STOP?
Logan lifts Cash up, whipping him to the ropes catching Waylone on the rebound and drops him with a tilt-a-whirl slam. Not satisfied just yet, Logan picks Cash up again, whipping him a second time into the ropes and hits with a spine buster.
Shannan Lerch: That move was so hard that I thought Cash was going to go right through ring.
Zach Davis: Smart move on Logans part. Pick a body part and work on it. He looks like he's out to destroy the hellbilly with the impact of those maneuvers.
Logan walks Cash over to a corner and sets him up on the top turnbuckle. Logan climbs up to the top rope with Cash who hits him with several hard hits to Logans head.
Shannan Lerch: Ouch.
Zach Davis: I think Logan was going to try to Superplex Cash back into the ring. But those hard shots might have put a stop to that.
Logan is stunned, falling off the ropes. Cash sets himself on the middle turnbuckle, flies high and hits Logan with a big double ax-handle.
Zach Davis: Ouch. Both men are throwing everything at one another.
Cash Grabs Logan,wrapping his arms around Logans waist from behind and throws him backwards across the ring with a vicious release German suplex. Slowly getting up, both men feeling the effects of this brutal match, Cash approaches Logan who amazingly manages to spring to his feet. Cash kicks at Logan trying to keep Logan down. Logan moves to the side, avoiding one of the kick, Cash's leg just misses Logans head, catching between the top and middle ropes. With Cash slightly hung up and at a slight disadvantage, he nails Cash with pounding hammer shots to the head. Cash stumbles, back, his leg catching the rope causing him to almost fall back onto the mat. Logan takes advantage. A quick gut kick causes Cash to lean over in pain. Sliding in behind Cash Logan slaps on a sleeper hold. An evil grin flashes across his face as he looks around at the crowd. They go crazy sensing what is about to happen.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the Connector!
As Logan flips, Cash shoves him away, spins him around and kicks him in the gut... he hits the Killshot!
Zach Davis: KILLSHOT!
Cash pins Logan, hooking the leg.
Shannan Lerch: CASH HAS DONE IT!
Zach Davis: Cash defeats former World Champion, Logan!
Cash stands up as his music plays and gets his arm raised in the air.
Shannan Lerch: Cash is really stringing together some victories... great things in the future for this man, I can tell you that.
Cash leaves as Logan stands up, holding his head in pain. He grabs the mic from Kyle.
Logan: Yeah, yeah, shut up, shut up, shut up, boudle boudles. I’m going to get to the point. You see, last week at Blast the best fuckin’ thing ever happened. FPV won the strap.
Logan: He did it on his own. He didn’t need me, he didn’t need DoT. FPV won it. He did that. So, basically, I’m just going to say this… FPV is the world champion. I’m not world champion, Gravedigger isn’t world champion, and nobody else in DoT is world champion. So, yeah, FPV is the new leader of the DoT. He can do whatever the hell he wants. I’m proud of that man and I have no intention of even TRYING to hold him back. Got that, FPV? This is your shindig now. Do with it what you please. Now I’m not saying I don’t care about DoT because I do. I’m just saying that I’m stepping down as co-leader and making FPV THE leader. Also… taking some time off, got things to do, boudles. See you trashcans later.
The fans boo as Logan leaves, totally not caring about anything.
Zach Davis: Eh. It was bound to happen sooner or later.
Shannan Lerch: Logan has handed the reigns over to FPV. And walked off into the sunset once more.
Zach Davis: What'll be next? He's already become a fat has been, thought he was a black man.. what's next for the Face of Treachery?
Shannan Lerch: Only time will tell.
Dr. Feelgood hits the speakers and as the main riff blasts through the arena, Doc, and Mary emerge on the stage, the Confederate Title over his shoulder. Accompaning the pair is a half dozen men in expensive suits, carrying briefcases. Looking around, he raises a fist in the air, then leads the way to the ring. Climbing up the steps, he holds the Ropes for Mary, who slinks lithely through. Doc steps trough the rooes and grins proudly as he pops the crowd drawing more boos.
Doc begins to speak, but pauses and lowers the mic, drawing even more boos, and some cheers.
Doc Henry: I'm out here tonight for some business...
Doc looks around as the crowd breaks into chants of 'We Want Bobby!'
Doc Henry: I want Bobby Cairo as well. However there seems to be a small little problem. Three weeks ago, one Bobby Cairo called me to this very ring, with so called 'Secret Service Agents', then proceeded to force me into a title unification match at XIII. Every since he pulled his little stunt, nobody has seen or heard from this so called Legend. Now, first and foremost I want to tell all the fans out there that the actions perpetrated by Cairo's 'Protective Detail' would not only get a man fired from the SS, it would include a vacation at beautiful Club Fed in Leavenworth.
The crowd's boos begin to grow even louder, and Doc lowers the mic once more, pacing the ring. As the noise dies down, the Confederate Champion leans against the ropes and looks into the camera.
Doc Henry: Your so called 'hero' Bobby Cairo is no more than a lying, no good yellow bellied pussy. The only people the SS is allowed to protect anymore are active politicians and POTUS. Hell, even Obama Bin Laden won't have a detail after he leaves office... Not that the prick needs one...
Docs voice trails off as chants of U S A begin to fill the arena.
Doc Henry: Go ahead, continue to be fed what they want you to know like the mindless sheep you are... That is not why I am out here. I am here because if'n that cowardly weasel Cairo doesn't show at XIII, then I'm am going to let my legal team loose on his Yankee ass!
The men at ringside nod their heads at this comment, as Doc smiles broadly.
Doc Henry: These six men not only have a combined 150 years of litigation, and contractual expertise, they would make OJ Simpson's dream team look like a group of first year law students. By challenging me to the match, and me agreeing to it, with all of you WCF fans as witnesses, that created an oral contract that will be fully upheld in court. I will be at XIII to collect the Northern States Imperial Championship. Now, it will be unified into my Confederate Championship, and promptly retired. Right where it belongs, around the waist of a true champion... Doc the Cock!!
Doc drops the mic and exits the ring, Mary and his legal team at his side...
Zach Davis: Our next match should be an exciting match-up!!
Shannan Lerch: Looks like Kyle Steel is already in the ring...
Kyle Steel: Our next match will be for the WCF UNITED STATES CHAMPION... SHIP!!
"Won't Back Down" by Eminem blares on the PA.
Kyle Steel: From Venice Beach, California... weighing in at 215 pounds... The WCF United States Heavyweight Champion... THE FUTURE JEE-EFF-F-F PUR-UR-UR-URSE!!!
On the right side of the stage, there is a bike ramp that extends just about to the middle of the Titan Tron.
Zach Davis: Shannan!!
Shannan Lerch: What?!
Zach Davis: LOOK!!
Zach points. At the top of the bike ramp, is Jeff Purse. He is sitting on his bike, looking out upon the audience. He throws one hand in the air, as the audience cheers.
You can sound the alarm
At this he sets off down the ramp.
Shannan Lerch: I can't watch!!
Directly across is another ramp on the left side of the stage, which Purse heads for.
Cadillac Sevilles, Coupe Devilles
Purse flies up the other ramp, launching off of it. He pulls off a small back flip, rides down the rest of the ramp, and comes to a screeching halt in the center of the stage. He gets off, kickstands it. He looks out, smiles, and throws his arms in the air. Red and Blue pyros explode behind him....
I cut my toes off and step on the receipt before I foot the bill
Jeff starts off down the ramp as Kari joins him, slapping five with the fans, walking very casually but at a quick pace. When he gets to the ring, he jumps up on the apron and quickly makes his way in through the middle rope, while Kari walks around the outside, pumping up the crowd.
Zach Davis: That Kari can sure get the crowd excited!
Jeff stands in the center, of the ring, "air guns" a corner, pyro shoot out of it. He subsequently does that for every other corner, pyro of red and white shooting out every time. He anxiously awaits his competition.
Shannan Lerch: We now wait, for the champion's competition...Gravedigger!
Zach Davis: A true legend, not just in WCF, but in the entire wrestling industry!!
The lights go out.
Shannan Lerch: Boy oh boy!!
Zach Davis: Here we go!!
The lights stay off for about 15 seconds or so before "Change" by Deftones starts playing throughout the arena. A spotlight hits the entrance way and out from the back walks Gravedigger, escorted by Adrian and JJ.
Kyle Steel: Coming to the ring, the challenger. From Pheonix, Arizona... weighing 258 pounds... THE EPITOME OF HARDCOR-OR-ORE GRA-A-AVEDI-I-IGER-ER-R-R!!!
The crowd boos heavily and the trio stops on top of the ramp as Gravedigger looks around smiling.
Zach Davis: I don't think that the WCF Galaxy likes Gravedigger that much.
Shannan Lerch: What gave you THAT idea, Einstein?!
The trio walks down the ramp and over to the ring steps. Adrian walks over to the side of the ring, reaches up and pulls himself up onto the apron with one of the ropes and then climbs into the ring. Gravedigger climbs the steps first and turns to JJ, pulling up the middle rope and stepping down on the bottom one, as she steps through the gap into the ring.
Gravedigger steps through the top and middle rope and walks over to one of the turnbuckles and stands on the middle pad and holds the hardcore belt high over his head as the crowd rains boos down upon him.
Zach Davis: As JJ and Adrian leave the ring, this US Title match will fought under hardcore rules.
Purse looks around the WCF Arena and looks at Kari, who hands Jeff a handi wipe. Purse wipes the top ring rope and tosses the used handi wipe to Kari. Jeff then grabs a hold of the top ring rope and proceeds to stomp down on the mat. Stomping down faster.... FASTer... FASTER!! The crowd claps along with the stomps.

Zach Davis: Wha...

Shannan Lerch: Jeff Purse is already bleeding!! What a weak champion!!

Shannan Lerch: Hope so!!
Gravedigger picks up Jeff Purse for a powerbomb...
Shannan Lerch: NO-O-O-O!!
Zach Davis: A surprise hurricanrana!!
Gravedigger rolls from the move, Purse runs to the corner, where Gravedigger is kneeling close to.

Jeff tries to reach for a ring rope, any ring rope!!
Gravedigger: THAT'S RIGHT BITCH SCREAM!! SCREA-EA-EAMM-M-M!!
A small pool of blood is forming from that laceration from the previous cane head shot. Slowly, but surely Purse was just close enough, to the ropes to grab a hold of the bottom ring rope!

Zach Davis: How in the Hell?!?!
Shannan Lerch: EXACTLY!! HOW... IN... THE BLUE HELL?!?
As Gravedigger came charging at him, Jeff Purse stood up and used a drop toe hold, causing Gravedigger to trip and land face first across the steel ring steps. Purse grabs for Gravedigger, but...
Zach Davis: DAMN IT!!
Shannan Lerch: HA!! Perfect!! A poke in the eye!!
Jeff Purse: AH!! AHH-H-H-H-H!!
Zach Davis: Now, that sick and twisted son of a bitch is now digging his finger into that small laceration on the top of Jeff Purse's head.
POUND!! POUND!! POUND!!

The crowd erupts!!
Crowd: JEFF!! JEFF!! JEFF!! JEFF!! JEFF!! JEFF!! JEFF!!
The champion tries to show some kind of emotion, as blood flows down his face.
Shannan Lerch: Whoa!! That's very odd for Gravedigger, as The Epitome of Hardcore shows why he HAS that name, as he gnaws on the top of the head of Jeff Purse!!
Gravedigger grabs Purse and throws him towards the security railing...
The challenger approaches the side of the ring and searches under the ring...
Crowd: WE WANT TABLES!! <clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!> WE WANT TABLES!! <clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!> WE WANT TABLES!! <clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!>

Shannan Lerch: Gravedigger is still running with the champion on his right shoulder. Jeff Purse still resisting.
Zach Davis: RUNNING POWERSLAM...
Shannan Lerch: TOLUCA SLAM!!
The table shatters into several pieces! Gravedigger is not opting for a pin, instead is pushes Jeff Purse out, of the ring!!

Shannan Lerch: Maybe he wants to prove a point.
Zach Davis: And what point would THAT be?!
Shannan Lerch: That is the very best in this company!!
Purse lands hard on the ringside area, next to the ring. Gravedigger stands up the US Champion and pushes him back...
Zach Davis: The champion's back just got jammed into the railing. Purse looks really hurt, now!!
Shannan Lerch: But, the champion is fighting back with a European forearm! That knocked the challenger back a bit.
Gravedigger kicks Purse in the mid-section.
Zach Davis: The champion still has fight in him, as he nails Gravedigger with a knee to the gut...
Shannan Lerch: Now, Jeff Purse is trying to gain momentum as he just slammed the head of Gravedigger across the security railing!!
Jeff Purse grabs the head/neck of Gravedigger and proceeds to jump over the railing, keeping a hold of his challenger's head and neck. Gravedigger's head whiplashed backwards, as he stumbles then falls backwards. As Jeff Purse is with the fans, he sees a fan with a ball cap sitting slightly a bit askewed.

Zach Davis: OH MY GOD!!
Purse flies off and...
The chair collides with the head of Gravedigger!!

Zach Davis: What did Gravedigger just smash into the face of Jeff Purse?!
Shannan Lerch: It looks like a 20 ounce cup of soda!!
Ice and drink flies everywhere, as the fan who Gravedigger stole the drink from, continues to bitch and complain. The Epitome of Hardcore grabs Jeff Purse and tossed him onto the commentary table.

Crowd: GRAVEDIGGER SUCKS!! GRAVEDIGGER SUCKS!! GRAVEDIGGER SUCKS!! GRAVEDIGGER SUCKS!!
The Epitome of Hardcore proceeds to release the cable choke and then begins to whip Purse with the cable!! Gravedigger walks away, goes to the side of the ring and looks under the ring. The crowd begins to chant..
Crowd: WE WANT TABLES!! <clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!> WE WANT TABLES!! <clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!> WE WANT TABLES!! <clap-clap!!> <clap-clap-clap!!>
Gravedigger pulls out a table. Jeff Purse is still laying behind the announce table, next to a security railing.

But, in the meantime, The Epitome of Hardcore drags the table next to the announce desk and sets up the table. Gravedigger walks over to Purse and proceeds to smack him around a bit more. But, the US Champion tries to fight back, until...
Until Gravedigger nails the champion with a knee to the gut and a forearm to the back, of the neck of Jeff Purse. The challenger grabs Purse and drags him onto the table. Gravedigger smacks the champion onto his chest, before walking away.
Zach Davis: Where's Gravedigger going?!
Shannan Lerch: Looks like he's walking to a corner, of the ring. HE'S CLIMBING UP THE TURNBUCKLES!!
The crowd begin to stand up.
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD! NO-O-O!!
Gravedigger flies off the top turnbuckle...
Shannan Lerch: DEATH FROM ABOVE FROG SPLASH!!
The crowd goes completely ballistic!!
Zach Davis: GRAVEDIGGER MISSES!! JEFF PURSE MOVED OUT OF THE WAY!!
Shannan Lerch: The champion grabs Gravedigger and is standing up the wobbly challenger!!
Jeff Purse runs towards the security railing and jumps on top and...
Zach Davis: A modified leaping moonsault of the top of the security railing!! Completely breathtaking!! Absolutely beautiful maneuver!!
Purse stands up, slowly grabbing his ribs and walks back over to the railing.
Shannan Lerch: What's this madman going to do, now?!
Purse asks the crowd for another chair. This time one person hands him a chair. But...
Zach Davis: Jeff Purse doesn't see a BATTERED, BRUISED AND HEAVILY BLEEDING Gravedigger standing behind him.
Shannan Lerch: The Epitome of Hardcore looks PISSED!!
The fans are pointing behind Jeff Purse. The United States Champion slowly turns around and with a complete shock, that Gravedigger is standing up, the champion scream out as he runs, as he swings the chair...

Zach Davis: Gravedigger is slowly standing....
Shannan Lerch: Aw-w damn it!! The Spoke!! Damn super kick!!
Gravedigger falls down to the mat, with a face full of blood. Jeff Purse slides out of the ring....
Zach Davis: NO!! NO!! Get in there!!
Purse grabs for a chair and he climbs up the turnbuckles. As quickly as he gets to the top turnbuckle, as quickly as he 5 star frog splashes, with chair underneath...
The US Champion lands with a chair aided five star frog splash on top of Gravedigger. Jeff Purse grabs a hold of his ribs. He is rolling around, in obvious pain!
Shannan Lerch: Uh-oh that backfired!! He hurt himself, as bad as he just hurt Gravedigger.
But, the pain didn't last long enough as Jeff Purse crawls over to a fallen Gravedigger and makes a cover. The crow leaping to their feet, almost climbing over the security railings...
Zach Davis: Jeff Purse has done it!! OH MY GOD, HE HAS DONE IT!! The Future Jeff Purse just defeated The Epitome of Hardcore...
Shannan Lerch: WCF LEGEND!!
Zach Davis:... YES!! WCF LEGEND in an awesome match-up, for the win!! What a match!!
Zach Davis: We’re about to see the new WCF World Heavyweight Champion, FPV, in action for the first time!
Shannan Lerch: This guy is on a roll, but he’s taking a moment to go back in time here and beat up on an old friend.
Zach Davis: I’m not sure I would say ‘beat up’ quite yet, Shannan. Speede is making his return tonight and he’s going to be motivated to show that his old tag-team partner isn’t the better man.
Shannan Lerch: Isn’t? Did you even watch that Euthanasia match these two had?
Zach Davis: Well yeah, but…
Shannan Lerch: Exactly, Zach. Let’s just see what happens here tonight.
The lights go out in the arena. 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!?!
The lights slowly come back on as 'Hear Me Now' by Hollywood Undead begins to play through the speakers as Roy Speede steps out on stage. He crosses his arms in an X across his chest, with his right arm underneath his left, and his hands in his fists. He bows his head for several seconds, and his chin rests in the gap between his fists.
Kyle Steel: Introducing, from Richmond, Virginia, the Wrestling Championship Federation's own Silver Lining, he is ROY SPEEEEDE!!
Roy drops his right arm, and raises his left arm in the air, with his pointer, middle, and pinky fingers extended, and his ring finger and thumb tucked into his palm. His palm is facing the crowd. He drops his arm, and begins jogging to ringside, high-fiving fans as he goes, before climbing onto the apron, and then climbing the outside of the turnbuckle. He raises his left arm, with the same fingers extended as when he was on stage. He leaps from the turnbuckle into the ring.
Zach Davis: It really is good to see Speede back. I think he’s going to have more success this time around.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe, just not in this match.
Zach Davis: I like you better when you have a dick in your mouth and can’t talk.
The lights turn to a blood red as the crowd stands up on their feet, as "Tank!" (Cowboy Bebop theme) plays over the P.A. Out the curtains comes Mr. FPV, signature duster and everything. He’s wearing his newly won WCF World Title and plays to 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.
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 takes off his World Title holding it high in the air for everyone to see.
Shannan Lerch: This guy just went through Oblivion, Gravedigger, and Jonny Fly; three former World Champions, and two with multi-World Titles, to win that belt. He’s joined some illustrious company.
Zach Davis: Let’s not ignore the fact that FPV and Speede are former friends, former WCF Tag Team Champions. These two know everything about one another. FPV may be the World Champion, but nobody is going to know how better to defend him than Roy Speede.
The crowd is electric as the match officially gets underway. The two former friends lock up in the center of the ring with FPV landing the first blow of the match. FPV takes a step back and lands a roundhouse kick to the head of Speede. Speede gets back up to his feet quickly and responds with a dropkick. The champ gets back to his feet and locks up again with Speede. Roy gains the advantage and sends FPV into the ropes. FPV bounces off and surprises Speede with a flying clothesline. Speede gets to his feet and FPV drops him right back down with a swinging neckbreaker. Speede gets back up and this time FPV grabs him around the waist and attempts a belly to belly suplex, but Speede blocks it and wraps his around FPV’s neck and picks him straight up into the air for a vertical suplex.
Zach Davis: Speede going for the first cover attempt of the match!
Shannan Lerch: No chance here.
FPV kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: …with ease, mind you.
FPV gets to his feet and stares at Speede. The two exchange a few words and as Speede goes to say something else FPV tries to surprise him with his BOOM! Headshot! superkick, but Speede ducks it, and tries to pick up FPV for a spinebuster. FPV blocks that attempt and instead grabs Speede, lifts him up and hits him with a double knee gutbuster. Speede tries to get to his feet but FPV has already run over to the ropes and uses the second rope to springboard himself back toward Speede, hitting him with a DDT.
Zach Davis: Another cover attempt!
Shannan Lerch: Roy Speede JUST kicks out in time.
Zach Davis: Speede has too much to gain in this matchup to lose on a DDT.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, but it wasn’t just any DDT. It was a DDT from the World Champion!
Both men get back to their feet. FPV grabs Roy and whips Speede into the corner and charges in behind him. Speede jumps up allowing FPV to crash headfirst into the turnbuckle. FPV spins around to face Speede. Speede climbs onto the ropes and begins raining down punches on the champion. FPV finally gets pissed off enough that he grabs hold of Speede and tries to take him down to the mat with a sit out powerbomb, but Speede blocks it! Speede wiggles out of FPV’s grasp and then hits a superkick under the champ’s jaw!
Zach Davis: What a display of tenacity from Roy Speede! He’s in rare form right now.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, he’s doing alright, I guess.
Speede isn't done yet. He signals that he's going to the top rope, and ascends the turnbuckle. FPV gets to his feet and Speede flies off the top rope and hits a missile dropkick. It connects with the champion's jaw and knocks him back down to the mat. Speede hooks a leg as he makes the cover.
FPV kicks out again!
Shannan Lerch: Whew!
Zach Davis: Are you worried Shannan?
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, my period is several days late, Zach.
Zach Davis: WHAT!?
Shannan Lerch: Wait, what did you ask again?
FPV rolls around on the mat feeling his jaw that just got struck with the drop kick. Speede gets onto the mat and locks FPV into a sleeper hold. FPV alertly rolls through before the hold can be tightened all the way and both men get back to their feet. Speede scrambles to keep momentum and lunges toward FPV but is met by a big boot to the face. Speede gets back to his feet quickly but is taken down once more by a brainbuster. It’s FPV’s turn to go to the ropes and he jumps off hitting a perfectly executed frog splash which he quickly turns into a cover attempt.
Shannan Lerch: Match is over, Zach, let’s go get some Cotton Candy.
Zach Davis: Not quite yet, Shannan…
Zach Davis: SPEEDE KICKS OUT!
Shannan Lerch: Damn, Speede is trying too hard. Lose with some pride, Speede!
Speede gets to his feet with an angry look on his face. FPV tries to grab hold of Speede to set up for a move, but Speede counters with a hip toss, taking the champion to the ground. Speede pulls FPV up and whips him into the ropes. FPV bounces himself out of the corner where Speede is waiting to land a stiff boot to the midsection and then a neckbreaker to get him onto the canvas. Speede decides to go to the top rope again. Speede leaps off the top rope with a double knee drop!
Zach Davis: The full impact of Speede’s two hundred pounds just drove into FPV’s chest!
Shannan Lerch: Two hundred pounds? I’ve sucked dicks bigger than that!
Speede decides to make another cover attempt.
FPV just BARELY kicks out in time!
Zach Davis: WOW! That looked like three from where I’m sitting, ref!
Shannan Lerch: There are prescriptions that can fix that, Zach.
Shannan Lerch: Back and forth, back and forth. These fans love it, Zach!
Zach Davis: Speede and FPV are giving this one all they have, and I have a feeling that this match isn’t even close to over yet.
Both competitors have returned to their feet. A quick spear from Speede takes Frank back to the mat and Speede begins stomping away at him. Speede tries to connect with one last final kick straight between the eyes, but FPV manages to dodge it. FPV quickly grabs hold of Speede and hits a powerslam from out of nowhere! FPV pops to his feet, bringing Speede up with him. FPV whips Speede into the corner and follows him in with a stiff clothesline. FPV uses his momentum to drag Speede to the middle of the ring and plant him with a running bulldog. FPV goes for a cradle pin attempt.
Shannan Lerch: LOOK AT THIS!
Zach Davis: NOPE! Kickout by Speede at two!
FPV starts to get a bit frustrated and unloads with a flurry of punches to Speede's face, drawing an audible chorus of boos from a growing portion of the audience. After landing about twenty punches, FPV gets to his feet and begins stepping on Speede’s face until the referee forces him off.
Shannan Lerch: FPV needs to relax. He’s been getting the better of Speede their whole careers; he’s got this match won.
Zach Davis: All the more reason why I think you’re watching the
Shannan Lerch: Seriously? You think so? Roy Speede the boudle?
Zach Davis: No, it’s Adam Young the boudle now. Don’t you keep up with your WCF internet news, Shannan?
FPV lets Speede get to his feet. This courtesy is only temporary as FPV pounces on Speede and spinebusters him into the mat no sooner than he got upright. FPV goes to the top rope and jumps off driving both of his feet into Speede’s chest!
Zach Davis: Ouch!
Shannan Lerch: Another cover attempt!
Zach Davis: Speede got a shoulder up!
Shannan Lerch: How in the hell does he keep doing that?
FPV spins back to his feet and begins viciously kicking Speede in the head. Speede yells out in pain and grabs his head in defense. FPV stomps at Speede a couple more times before yanking him to his feet. FPV whips Speede into the corner trying for a big boot, but Speede ducks the kick and grabs FPV’s leg lifting him up and dropping him across the top rope. FPV lands throat-first on the rope and gasps for breath. From there Speede grabs FPV and hits his trademark move ‘Fast Forward.’
Zach Davis: BOOM!
Shannan Lerch: Shit!
Speede pumps his fist and makes a cover attempt.
Shannan Lerch: NOPE! FPV kicked out just in time!
Zach Davis: What?! NO! HOW?
Speede pulls FPV up and whips him into the ropes. When FPV rebounds Speede hits a rolling wheel kick to let out his frustration from the previous cover attempt.
Zach Davis: WHOA! Speede letting out some aggression right there. He’s not very happy right now!
Speede grabs FPV and whips him into the corner. Speede follows him, but FPV senses it and back body drops Speede over the ropes. Instead of falling to the ground, Speede catches himself on the apron and turns back toward an unaware Frank Patrick Venable. Speede clubs FPV over the top of the head, and then repeats the same move again, and again. He enters back into the ring and hits a jumping dropkick sending both men to the canvas. Speede confidently grabs FPV but as he’s trying to lift him up, FPV surprises him and rolls him into a small package.
Shannan Lerch: FPV TRYING TO STEAL THIS ONE!
Zach Davis: NOO!!!
ROY SPEEDE KICKS OUT!
Shannan Lerch: WHAT?? That’s bullshit, that was a three count!
Speede gets back up to his feet looking shocked. FPV stands as well, smiling from ear to ear. Speede is still flustered by what just happened and that gives FPV a chance to grab him and try to hit a vertical suplex. Speede slips out of the hold and then spins FPV around, shoves him into the ropes and schoolboy rolls him up from behind.
Shannan Lerch: NOPE! Kickout by FPV!
Zach Davis: This is getting crazy. Neither one of these guys has been able to get any sort of advantage in quite some time.
Both men spring to their feet and start throwing punches back and forth viciously. It’s like two boxers just letting it all hang out. Speede finally gains the upper hand, but FPV turns it around on him and drops Speede to one knee. FPV grabs him and then finally is able to land his vertical suplex. He follows the vertical suplex up with a leg drop.
Shannan Lerch: THE DUSTER! This one is over, Zach!
Zach Davis: Are you sure, Shannan?
Zach Davis: ROY SPEEDE KICKS OUT AGAIN!
Shannan Lerch: Dammit, Speede, quit already!
FPV looks down at Speede, hardly able to believe that he’s kicked out once again. He waits for Speede to come to and Speede gets back to his feet both men lock up. FPV easily comes away with the advantage of the tired Roy Speede and swings around behind him to attempt ‘The Pearly Gates’ but Speede quickly gets out of the hold and swings behind FPV and locks him into a full nelson hold before lifting him off the ground…
Zach Davis: THE SILVER BULLET!
Shannan Lerch: HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!
Zach Davis: ROY SPEEDE IS GOING TO WIN!
Speede goes for the cover.
Shannan Lerch: FUCK!
Zach Davis: I DON'T BELIEVE IT!
Speede's music hits as he rolls over onto the mat, panting heavily.
Shannan Lerch: Here tonight, Roy Speede has defeated the WCF World Champion. Wow.
Speede stumbles to his feet, savoring this moment, and getting his arm raised into the air. He looks into the crowd for several moments before looking down at FPV. Speede drops to the mat and heads to the back, satisfied.
Zach Davis: And there you have it. The final chapter in one of the most intense rivalries in WCF history.
Shannan Lerch: But how can it be the final chapter!? Speede just beat the Champion in a Non-Title match... if Seth had decided to put the belt on a line, we'd be facing a Roy Speede World Title reign right now! Dear God, Zach! I'm almost puking just thinking about it!
Zach Davis: You're right, though, that is going to be on Speede's mind for a long while to come.
Master of Puppets hits.
Zach Davis: Seth Lerch, ending the show. Great.
And of course, Seth Lerch steps out from the back. FPV stands in the ring, World Title over his shoulder, panting after his hard fought match. Seth heads to the ring and slides in, grabbing a mic from Kyle.
Seth Lerch: First of all, let me say officially... CONGRATULATIONS TO FPV!
Mixed reaction from the crowd; they hate Seth, of course. Seth pats FPV on the back, and FPV humbly nods, saying thanks.
Seth Lerch: Thank God that we had FPV to step up, after Logan, well... stepped down. Fluke loss to Roy Speede aside. As we saw earlier in the show, FPV and Gravedigger will certainly make two great co-leaders of the Darkside of Treachery. But that isn't why I'm here.
Buzzing from the crowd.
Seth Lerch: I promised that I'd make some announcements for Ultimate Showdown. But first, I have another announcement. Not next week, but the week after, we'll be having a special Slam... a Night of Champions!
Big pop for that, actually.
Seth Lerch: That's right! EVERY SINGLE Champion will have a Title match, including my man FPV himself! Next week, then, will feature contendership matches for the Night of Champions Title shots. I, personally, can't wait.
The fans cheer, actually giving Seth props for once.
Seth Lerch: Which leads me to Ultimate Showdown. This time last year, I was still on my hiatus. I'm not a huge fan of a lot of things that happened during that era, but one idea that I admit WAS a good idea... was the Ultimate Showdown match itself. Last year's match featured six competitors, with three belts on the line: the World Title, US Title, and TV Title. The landscape of the company has changed quite a bit since then, of course. Which is why this year's match will be a little different.
More buzzing from the crowd.
Zach Davis: Uh oh! What could this mean?
Shannan Lerch: Last year's event featured Odin Balfore capturing the World Title, it was quite a historic match... how're things going to change?
Seth Lerch: First of all, the Hardcore Title will be on the line as well! That's right, FOUR Titles on the line in one match! All four of the major singles belts, barring the Internet and People's Titles, of course, due to the special nature of those belts. And with that fact, it's clear that the number of competitors in the match will have to change... the Ultimate Showdown match will now feature EIGHT competitors, not six.
Zach Davis: Holy crap! What a HUGE match... literally everything on the line in one contest!
Shannan Lerch: Let's think about it. Our Champions now are FPV, Gein Spector, Jeff Purse, and Steve Orbit... that could all change after Night of Champions, of course, but still!
Zach Davis: Now as for who the competitors in the match will be that AREN'T current Title holders-
Seth is cut off as Requiem For A Tower plays. Both FPV and Seth's faces sour as Jonny Fly steps out from the back.
Shannan Lerch: Things are heating up, and not just in my pants. Here comes the former two time Champ, Jonny Fly!
Fly is, naturally, in a grumpy mood, to say the least. He marches to the ring and slides in as the crowd cheers for him, he snatches the mic from Seth's hand. But before he can speak, FPV step's forward, face to face with Fly. Every person in the crowd is on their feet.
Zach Davis: The Champion squaring off with the former Champ... this is TENSE.
Jonny raises the mic to his lips, not taking his eyes off FPV.
Jonny Fly: Back off, Frank. Just back off.
Due partly to the urging of Seth, FPV does indeed back off.
Jonny Fly: Yeah yeah, Seth, yeah yeah. Let's cut to the chase. Just like when Jay Price managed to take that belt from me, I'm going to get my Title rematch and take the belt back. Again. I went through Sarah Twilight to do it last time, and I'll go through seven other people to do it this time. I don't care. I just wanted to be here when you said it, to be honest with you.
Seth Lerch: Well, actually Jonny-
"With Oden By Our Side" hits now.
Shannan Lerch: OH SHIT.
Next up, Odin Balfore steps out! Odin marches to the ring confidently, sliding in and grabbing the mic from Fly now.
Odin Balfore: Wah wah, I'm Jonny Fly, I want a Title rematch right away.... WELL JONNY FLY, I'M ODIN BALFORE AND MANAGEMENT HAS BEEN KEEPING ME AWAY FROM TITLE MATCHES FOR MONTHS!
Booing from the crowd.
Odin Balfore: It was one year ago that I won the Ultimate Showdown match and I'm going to do it again! It's about damn time that you and I cross paths, Fly. For the last few months all I've heard is how you've ushered in a new era here in WCF.... well sorry but the era of the Maverick Elite never ended!
Fly grabs the belt back from Odin.
Jonny Fly: I'm sorry. I'm a little embarrassed, but I've been too busy with my World Title matches to pay attention to the lower card these last few months. What's your name again?
Odin glares at Fly; Fly continues.
Jonny Fly: You see Odin, it's cute that you won that Ultimate Showdown match last year. It really is. And it's even cuter that you think that somehow entitles you to be in this one, or that you have even a tiny chance of taking back a belt that is rightfully mine. And-
FPV taps Fly on the shoulder. Fly turns around, mildly annoyed for a second. FPV takes the mic from him.
FPV: Uh, Jonny. Odin. Did you guys forget something?
They both look at FPV.
FPV: I'M the World Champion, and neither of you two are! There's one big difference between you two and I.... I'VE never LOST this belt like both of you have!
Odin steals the mic back.
Odin Balfore: Know what? We all know where this is leading. Let's cut to the chase.
Odin drops the mic and runs at FPV, going for a Big Boot, of course! FPV's eyes go wide and he ducks it, sending Odin's boot crashing into Seth's face. FPV drops and slides out of the ring, taking the World Title with him, and grabbing Seth and pulling him out as well. Odin smiles and turns around, gets kicked in the gut by Fly, and then dropped with a DDT!
Zach Davis: Holy crap! Jonny Fly just spiked Odin Balfore's head!
The crowd chants "FLY! FLY! FLY!" as Jonny gets back to his feet. He points at FPV and Seth, who are backpeddling up the ramp.
Shannan Lerch: Well, Seth never really did say that Fly and Odin are getting into this match, but either way... I already can't wait until Ultimate Showdown!
Zach Davis: Not to mention Night of Champions! We'll see you next week for the Contendership matches, fans!
Slam fades out as Fly exits the ring, with Balfore starting to get up, hatred in his eyes.
