Jonny Fly sits in his office leaning back in his chair with his hands folded behind his back. Sitting across from his is WCF World Champion Eric Price, looking as smug as ever. Fly appears to be deep in thought and Price sits patiently waiting for him to speak. After a few more seconds Fly leans forward and grabs his phone. He clicks for speakerphone and dials up a number. After a few seconds we hear Corey Black answer on the other line.
Corey Black: Fly, what’s good?
Jonny Fly: Can you come into the office?
Corey Black: I’m right around the corner. Be there in a second.
Fly hangs up the phone and returns to his leaning position, this time propping his feet up on the desk. Eric Price looks annoyed and mutters.
Eric Price: You going to keep me in here all day? I’m very important. I have shit to do.
Fly smiles and just as he does, Corey Black opens the door and steps into the office. He swings behind Fly’s desk and stands next to him.
Corey Black: Oh, look at that. My newest employee.
Eric Price: Save it, Black. Just give me my contract so I can leave.
Fly smiles and stands up. He reaches into a filing cabinet behind him and returns to his seat holding a manila envelope.
Jonny Fly: You know, Price, I reached out to our fans and asked them what I should do with you. You know what they said?
Eric Price: Don’t care.
Jonny Fly: They said that I should let Corey Black jobber kill you. What do you think about that?
Eric Price: He could try.
Corey Black: I would succeed, make no mistake about it.
Price rolls his eyes and looks on generally annoyed.
Eric Price: So is that my big punishment? I get jobber killed by some part-time wrestler? Good luck with that.
Jonny Fly: No, Eric. This is your punishment.
Fly slides over the folder and motions for Price to look at the contents of it. EP opens the folder and begins inspecting the documents with a confused look on his face.
Eric Price: Uh, these are contract renewal documents…? Same salary, benefits, and perks. I don’t understand.
Jonny Fly: It’s exactly as it appears. That’s your contract, and by our agreement you have to sign it. I want your signature on those forms right now.
Price smirks and shakes his head.
Eric Price: ….okay. You truly are a dumbass, Fly. All the things you could have done to me and you choose this. Some visionary leader you are.
Price reaches into his pocket and pulls out a pen, signing each document in the folder before sliding it back over to Fly.
Eric Price: There. All signed.
Corey Black: Welcome back. I REALLY look forward to making your employment with WCF…memorable.
Black smiles arrogantly, but Price ignores him. He gets up from his seat and moves toward the door.
Eric Price: Well, you ladies have a good night. I’m going to go do World Champion stuff.
Jonny Fly: Price, just one last thing. With that contract you just signed, it’d probably be in your best interests as a ‘righteous man’ to switch up the rhetoric. Everyone is now going to know who the bigger man is between the two of us. The accusations of me being a liar, cheat, and unfair…those are going to seem pretty hollow coming from you.
Price considers the statement, and scowls. Without saying a word he disappears into the hallway.
Corey Black: You should have let me jobber kill him.
Jonny Fly: Too easy, bud. Too easy.
The scene cuts.
Drunk and Crazy by Mogwai hits and Slam is on the air! We go live to Zach and Shannan.
Zach Davis: Welcome to Slam! We're one week removed from Payback, and what an amazing show that was.
Shannan Lerch: Big changes, Zach, big changes. We saw Roy Speede finally unseated as the Hardcore Champion, but we also saw the Homegrown Players pick up the Tag Team Championships.
Zach Davis: Well, we have a blockbuster main event tonight that pits Pantheon and Skyler Striker against Genesis against the most evil trio I've ever come across: Eric Price, Nathan von Liebert, and Stuart Slane.
Shannan Lerch: That's right. We've got Jonny Fly and Jay Price representing Pantheon, and Roy Speede and the Homegrown Players representing Genesis. Earlier in the week, Seth made this a no disqualification match, with what little power he does have left. Who knows what's going to happen here!
Zach Davis: A LOT of tension between Nathan von Liebert and Waylon Cash, after Nathan's interaction with Roxxi Savage.
Shannan Lerch: "Interaction," Zach? HE KIDNAPPED HER! Nathan belongs in an institution. Or dead.
Zach Davis: The team of Odin Balfore and Benjamin Atreyu is back in action, facing the recently reunited Prophecy. Balfore and Atreyu have never been the most stable team in the world, so now that they've lost the Titles, we'll see how long they can coexist.
Shannan Lerch: Sarah Twilight is defending the Television Title against The Ninja and Kale Windsor. She's apparently gotten Seth to grant her a World Title shot at a time of her choosing... I'm not sure how I feel about THAT, but Eric Price best watch his back.
Zach Davis: OBLIVION is making his return to the ring!, facing Doc Henry. Oblivion shocked us all, we thought Ace Slaughter was coming back... then boom, nope. Oblivion.
Shannan Lerch: John Gable is teaming with Vengeance to take on Morientes and Terry "Synn" Roberts. Gable and Morientes had some harsh words for one another last week, and Vengeance, I'd have to say, pulled off an upset by defeating Synn last week.
Zach Davis: Christopher Kane and Kaylyn James Evans team up to face Southern Discomfort. We haven't seen Kaylyn for quite a while now, ever since she was scheduled to face Chris for the Internet Title at One.
Shannan Lerch: Blizzard is in singles action against G-Money!
Zach Davis: And in our opener, we have Deuce Maximus, Daniel Peev, Davey Ortega, and Michael Santiago going at it. Let's start the show!
“Change” by Deftones hits the speakers and Gravedigger steps out from the back in a red Gravedigger t-shirt and jeans. He is also wearing a pair of shades which he removes with a smirk on his face as the crowd rains boos down upon him.
Zach Davis: What the hell is he doing out here?! I thought he was just back to be Eric Price’s enforcer?
Shannan Lerch: Well, apparently, he got too much of the spotlight when he helped beat down Jonny Fly in the middle of the ring after his match with Price.
Gravedigger walks slowly down the ramp, soaking in the boos from the capacity crowd. Gravedigger jogs up the ring steps, ducks between the top and middle ropes and into the ring. Gravedigger taunts the crowd for a few seconds before walking over and being handed a microphone. He lifts the microphone up as he speaks.
Gravedigger: Did you guys miss me?
Loud boos, almost deafening erupt from the crowd. Gravedigger laughs as “YOU SUCK” chants start. He grins and nods his head as the boos finally die down after a few seconds.
Gravedigger: It is great to be back here in WCF. Especially when it’s due to backing one of the greatest world champions this company has ever seen!
Zach Davis: What is he talking about?! Eric Price hasn’t even defended the belt yet!
Shannan Lerch: He did plan on defending it against Jeff Purse, but Purse proved he doesn’t know how to safely walk through a parking lot.
Zach Davis: Oh come on! For all we know that was Eric Price behind the wheel of the car!
Gravedigger: Judging from his recent comments regarding mine and Eric’s alliance, Jonny Fly has no one to blame but himself. Jonny, the other week when Eric Price showed up at The Graveyard, we had every intention of that being a one night thing. While you snubbed our wonderful world champion, I showed him the respect he deserved and invited him to my club. You couldn’t just leave well enough alone, Jonny. No, no. You had to run your mouth along with the other people in this company.
Little do you realize that you created a problem for yourself. While Eric was at The Graveyard, we got to talking and realized how powerful our alliance could be for the two of us and how dangerous it would be for you and the rest of WCF. So Eric Price hires me as his personal enforcer because we knew the moment that you accepted his challenge for the match at Payback that you would immediately try and come up with as many underhanded ways as possible for you to win the match. As everyone found out last week at Payback I threw in the protection of Mara Salvatrucha as a bonus. If people think that simply means Adrian will occasionally show up alongside me when Eric is in need of protection, you are sorely mistaken.
Eric Price now has not only the legendary Gravedigger backing him, he has an entire deadly street gang watching his back. Go ahead and run your mouth Jonny Fly about how little you fear me and how little you fear MS-13. You weren’t here in 2010 when we ran wild and tore this place apart. You weren’t hear to witness the riots, the assa---
“300 Violin Orchestra” hits over the arena’s PA system, interrupting Gravedigger.
Shannan Lerch: Uh-oh. Things are about to get VERY interesting.
Jonny Fly steps out onto the stage to a rousing ovation from the WCF faithful. Fly immediately begins pacing back and forth, looking intently at Gravedigger and mouthing a few words that are inaudible to the camera.
Zach Davis: The boss is here, Shannan, and he looks pissed.
Shannan Lerch: For good reason too, Zach. In back-to-back PPV’s we’ve seen Gravedigger attack Fly and his alliance with World Champion Eric Price has been a hot debate on Twitter for several weeks now.
Fly quits pacing the stage and begins to speak.
Jonny Fly: Gravedigger. Enough is enough. I’m done with you sitting on the periphery of this company acting like you can do whatever the fuck you please.
Cheers from the crowds. In response, Gravedigger simply smiles.
Jonny Fly: I’m not even going to respond to your MS-13 comments, because really, I could care less. I wasn’t here in 2010, but you damn sure were around in 2012. You know what happens now. You’ve seen the examples I’ve made of every_single_wrestler who has stood in my way. Now, it’s time for you to join that illustrious group.
Shannan Lerch: Wait a second; is he saying what I think he is?
Jonny Fly: While matches in this company are booked through our committee, the committee doesn’t apply to me. I’m booking a match right now. Executive order. You, Gravedigger, will be wrestling….me.
EXPLOSION from the crowd. Chants of “Fly, Fly, Fly” break out.
Jonny Fly: TONIGHT!
Zach Davis: WHAT!?
Jonny Fly: RIGHT_FUCKING_NOW.
Shannan Lerch: GRAVEDIGGER AND JONNY FLY RIGHT NOW!
Zach Davis: How long have we waited to see this match, Shannan? We’re about to see it right now! Strap yourselves in ladies and gentlemen; because I guarantee you this one is going to be brutal.
Jonny Fly: If I don’t have a referee in that ring in two minutes someone backstage is getting fired.
With that, Fly tosses his microphone onto the stage, strips off his shirt, and begins walking down the ramp. Undeterred, inside the ring Gravedigger is motioning for Fly to bring it. Fly slides into the ring and is immediately clubbed in the back by Gravedigger. The Epitome of Hardcore tosses, and by tosses I mean violently throws, Fly into the corner and shoots an elbow into his temple. Digger follows with a sharp jab to the chin and then a running bulldog, dropping Fly headfirst onto the mat in the center of the ring.
Zach Davis: These two are already going at it, but we don’t even have our referee yet!
Shannan Lerch: This match is a long-time coming, Zach. Despite the presence of a referee, these two could probably care less about a winner or loser; they just want to hurt one another.
Gravedigger leans down to pick up Fly, but is struck with a back elbow. Fly explodes from the mat and tackles Gravedigger. Fly positions his body on top of Digger and rains down a series of right and left hands. Gravedigger finally is able to deflect a punch and push Fly off of him. Both men rise back to their feet just as the referee joins them in the ring.
Ding, Ding, Ding.
Zach Davis: Finally, the official start of this match.
Shannan Lerch: Look at these two standing there sizing each other up. Six World Titles and a lot of hatred represented in that ring right now.
Fly and Gravedigger lock up, with the bigger Gravedigger gaining the advantage in a side-headlock. Fly tries to backpedal and bounce off the ropes, but Gravedigger releases him, and as Fly bounces back…
Zach Davis: OH FUCK
Shannan Lerch: GRAVE MARKER. Fly is down!
The cold stare on Gravedigger’s face transforms into a smirk as he looks down at Fly, unmoving on the canvas. Digger moves toward the corner and climbs the turnbuckle.
Shannan Lerch: Death from Above?
Zach Davis: It sure looks like it. This can’t be what Fly expected. For about the third time in a month Fly is being destroyed by Gravedigger.
Gravedigger leaps off the top rope but in the middle of his frog splash Fly keenly rolls to his right, allowing the WCF Hall of Famer to hit the mat empty-handed.
Shannan Lerch: He missed! Gravedigger missed!
Zach Davis: Survival instinct from Fly, that’s all that is, Shannan. The great wrestlers all have superior instincts.
Fly spins back to his feet. It’s his turn to look down at his fallen opponent, but just momentarily. Fly grabs Gravedigger, picks him up, and shoves him into the corner. Fly takes a few steps backward before running forward and hitting Gravedigger with a body splash. As the WCF Hall of Famer is jarred out of the corner Fly spins his body three hundred and sixty degrees and connects with a HUGE uppercut.
Zach Davis: DISCUS FLY!
Shannan Lerch: GOOD LORD. THE POWER BEHIND THAT MOVE.
Gravedigger crumples to the ground after the blow, sliding out of the ring to regain his bearings. Unbeknownst to Fly, he’s been replaced inside the ring by….
Zach Davis: ERIC PRICE! ERIC PRICE IS HERE AND HE’S STALKING FLY FROM BEHIND.
Shannan Lerch: Oh shit, turn around Jonny!
Too late. Eric Price grabs Fly by the shoulder, spins him around, and levels him with an inverted facelock neckbreaker slam, the ‘Reversal of Fortune!’
Shannan Lerch: LOOK AT THIS!
As Price gets back to his feet, smirking at the booing crowd, Gravedigger returns to the ring and notices Corey Black sprinting down the ramp. Black slides into the ring and goes for a clothesline on Gravedigger. Gravedigger ducks it, but behind him is Eric Price, who isn’t so lucky.
Zach Davis: Corey Black has Eric Price! BURNING HAMMER!
Shannan Lerch: SHIT IS OUT OF CONTROL.
Black gets up and turns around, catching a big boot from Gravedigger. Black hits the mat, but almost immediately hops back to his feet. Black and Gravedigger lock in a stare-down as Fly and Eric Price return to their feet, Fly next to Black, Price next to Gravedigger.
Zach Davis: This would be one hell of a tag match right here. It just won’t be today…
Black blinks first, going straight for Gravedigger and backing him into the corner with a flurry of jabs. Price and Fly lock up, with Price gaining the advantage. Price throws Fly into the corner and as Fly bounces out is taken down with a missile drop kick. Noticing this, Black whips Gravedigger across the ring right into Eric Price, knocking both men down. Black walks over and helps Fly to his feet but doesn’t notice yet another man entering the ring…
Shannan Lerch: ADRIAN!
Zach Davis: He’s got Corey Black!
Adrian has grabbed Black by the throat and takes him down with his patented chokeslam. Fly grabs Adrian and swings him around and levels the MS-13 member with a spinebuster. Fly viciously begins stomping at Adrian’s midsection before Gravedigger approaches, grabs him, and then takes him down with the Death Driver!
Shannan Lerch: The numbers game has caught up to Fly and Black….
Zach Davis: Not for long, Shannan!
Jay ‘Fucking’ Price has emerged on the stage, sending the crowd into frenzy. The reaction catches Gravedigger’s attention and he smiles, almost daring Price to get into the ring with him. Eric Price and Adrian recover and rise back to their feet. All three men taunt Price from the ropes, encouraging him to join them inside the ring. Price shrugs his shoulders, takes off his crown and robe, and begins a dead sprint toward the ring. The champion of nearly every title ever slides in and is immediately mauled by Gravedigger, Eric Price, and Adrian. The South Street Menace fights his way back to his feet, but Adrian is able to use his strength advantage to toss Price into the corner.
Shannan Lerch: Jay Price taking on MS-13 and the World Champion by himself, not sure if this is smart.
Adrian runs at Price, but is hit with a stiff elbow to the jaw. Gravedigger’s turn now, running at Price, but he’s hit with a kick to the midsection and then taken to the mat with a quick DDT. The numbers are too much though, and as Price gets back to his feet Eric Price delivers an eye rake, and then smashes Price’s head into the mat with scoop piledriver.
Zach Davis: Price takes, well, Price down with the piledriver.
Shannan Lerch: Corey Black and Jonny Fly are back to their feet, though. Things are about to take a turn for the worse for Eric Price.
Price notices Fly and Black stalking him and looks around helplessly. He decides to quickly slide out of the ring and out of harms away. Price begins running around on the outside. As Fly and Black are distracted, Gravedigger and Adrian are able to return to their feet. Gravedigger grabs Fly, and holds his arms behind his back. Adrian does the same to Black. Eric Price slides back into the ring and is about to go to strike when…. “Hands” by The Almost begins to play over the arena’s PA system. Skyler Striker steps out onto the stage.
Zach Davis: Skyler Striker is here!
Shannan Lerch: OH SHIT. This is about to get REALLY interesting. We’ve seen Striker doing some bidding for Fly and Pantheon in the past couple of weeks, but I’m not entirely sure the meaning of this.
Striker sprints toward ringside and slides into the ring. Gravedigger and Adrian club Fly and Black over the head, sending them to the mat. Along with Eric Price, they approach Striker. Striker sprints toward ringside and slides into the ring. Gravedigger and Adrian club Fly and Black over the head, sending them to the mat. Along with Eric Price, they approach Striker. Striker looks at his three opponents, and then launches himself right at Price. However, the numbers game quickly catches up with him and Gravedigger, Adrian and Price all begin to beat him down.
Zach Davis: Well, Striker’s supposed to be on the same team as Fly and Jay Price tonight, but he may not make it to the main event at this rate!
Shannan Lerch: Don’t speak too soon!
Adrian is pushed back from the melee and is quickly followed by Gravedigger as Striker begins to fight back! He delivers punches to all three as they try to restrain him, and when Adrian catches a punch Striker jumps up high and delivers a fierce kick to the head. As Gravedigger approaches Striker wastes no time in knocking him flat with a superkick, and he then turns his attention to Price, who receives a boot to the gut before Striker nails him with the Exile to Oblivion! The crowd roar as Striker flings his arms out to his sides, hands outstretched in victory.
Zach Davis: Striker has downed all three of Price’s group! What a fightback!
Shannan Lerch: He’s had a bad few weeks after One, but this might just turn it around for him!
Fly, Black and Jay Price all get to their feet again, and Fly gives the order to throw the trash out of the ring. Black, Jay and Striker grab a hold of their opponents and send all three flying over the top rope towards the entrance. Fly asks for a microphone as Eric Price retreats up the ramp, facing Fly with a look of fury upon his face.
Jonny Fly: You know what, Gravedigger? I DON’T fear MS-13, reason being that only a fool doesn’t make sure his own ranks are strengthened when he faces his enemies.
Shannan Lerch: Is he saying what I think he’s saying?
Zach Davis: Do you think he’s saying he wants popcorn? Because that’s probably not what he’s saying.
Jonny Fly: Allow me to introduce to you the newest member of Pantheon: SKYLER STRIKER!
The crowd goes nuts over this. Striker’s music hits the speakers again and Eric Price & Co stand on the entrance stage, Price fuming at Fly getting the upper hand on this occasion. Fly, Black, Jay Price and Striker all stand against the ropes, taunting the World Champion.
Zach Davis: That’s a huge announcement! Jeff Purse may be down and out for the moment but Pantheon is back up to four members as Skyler Striker is now onboard!
Shannan Lerch: And Striker gets his first match as a member of Pantheon in the main event tonight when he teams with Fly and Price!
Zach Davis: Don’t go away!
Shannan Lerch: First match of the night coming up right now!
The lights in the arena dims as the sounds of electric crackling can be heard. Suddenly a bright flash of electricity strikes the center of the ramp entrance. Once the smoke clears, Deuce is standing there smirking towards the ring. 'Run Like Hell' by Pink Floyd jumps in and Deuce walks to the ring, reaching his arms out to give fans fives, both high and low, occasionally too slow. As he slides into the ring and stands center, lightning flashes from the four corners. Deuce pulls off his 'mythic' T-shirt and tosses it to the crowd then hops to a middle turnbuckle. He does a 'lookout' before he smirks and gives a finger-guns to a sign he finds clever. He hops down and waits for the bell.
Zach Davis: So there you have ‘Mythic’ Deuce Maximus, making his debut tonight.
“War Of Change" by TFK hits over the arena’s PA system and out from the back walks ‘The Satan’ Daniel Peev. Peev smirks out a the crowd and makes his way down the ramp and slides into the ring.
Shannan Lerch: They call him ‘The Satan,’ Daniel Peev is also making his debut tonight.
''Sympathy for the Devil'' by the Rolling Stones fills the arena as the boos follow. Davey Ortega emerges from the back with a smile on his face. He slowly walks down the ramp, slowly raising his arms up as more boos come, which fuels his smile. He uses the stairs to get on the apron, casually getting into the ring.
Zach Davis: You would have to think, Shannan that Davey Ortega is the heavy favorite in this matchup.
Shannan Lerch: I would agree with you Zach. Ortega is clearly the most accomplished wrestler in this match.
"King of my World" by Saliva cues up over the P.A. system and red strobe lights flood the entrance ramp. The silhouette of a man fills the tunnel and finally Michael Santiago emerges, drawing in the boos and cheers of the crowd as he makes his way down the ramp towards the ring. He jumps up on the ring apron and climbs through the second rope, looking around at the fans filling the arena, Michael taunts the fans in the center of the ring as the music begins to fade out.
Zach Davis: Last but not least, Michael Santiago, fresh off his return to WCF.
Shannan Lerch: Looks like everyone is in the ring, let’s get this match underway.
Ding, Ding, Ding.
The match starts with Davey Ortega locking up with Daniel Peev and Michael Santiago locking up with Deuce Maximus. Ortega gains the advantage with a side headlock and uses it to push Peev into the corner. With Peev leaning against the turnbuckle Ortega runs and hits him with ‘The Setting Sun,’ spearing ‘The Satan’ into the ring post.
Zach Davis: GOOD GOD.
Shannan Lerch: I think Davey Ortega has already KO’d Daniel Peev. Not the first impression the new guy wanted to make.
Ortega looks down at Peev and simply kicks him out of the ring, to the outside. On the other end of the ring Deuce Maximus and Michael Santiago are trading blows. Maximus is able to gain an advantage and take Santiago to the mat with a hip toss. Santiago explodes back to his feet and runs at Deuce, who simply moves out of the way allowing Santiago to run into the corner. Santiago turns and…
Shannan Lerch: BOOM! Poseidon’s Trident!
Santiago is speared into the ring post by Maximus.
Zach Davis: …and goodnight Michael Santiago.
Santiago is rolled out of the ring and Deuce Maximus turns and sees that he is being stalked by Davey Ortega. Ortega runs at Maximus and grabs hold of him and downs him with a neckbreaker. Ortega rolls back to his feet and drops a couple of boots into Deuce’s midsection. Ortega reaches down and picks the newcomer back up onto his feet. Ortega latches on to Deuce and attempts a suplex, but Maximus is able to reverse it and instead drops the WCF veteran with a suplex of his own.
Shannan Lerch: Impressive move there by Deuce, trying to regain some momentum against a tough opponent.
Maximus quickly leaps to the top of the turnbuckle and flies off, driving an elbow into Ortega’s chest. Deuce quickly hooks the leg for the cover.
Shannan Lerch: NOPE! Ortega kicks out.
Ortega and Deuce Maximus both get back to their feet. The two superstars lock up once again, with Ortega gaining the advantage by clubbing Deuce over the head. He drives his knee into ‘Mythic’s’ chest and then lays him out onto the mat with a drop toe hold. Deuce quickly scrambles back to his feet. Ortega approaches, but Deuce takes him down with a standing drop kick.
Zach Davis: Back and forth these two go. Impressive outing tonight by Deuce Maximus. He’s holding his own against Davey Ortega for sure.
Both wrestlers get back to their feet once again. Deuce runs at Ortega, but Ortega grabs him and throws him out of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Damn!, Deuce crashes to the outside!
Ortega then turns and sees Peev. Ortega runs at him... SPEAR!
Zach Davis: THE SETTING SUN!
Ortega drops and pins Peev.
Shannan Lerch: Davey Ortega picks up the win here tonight!
Ortega's music hits and he stands, getting his arm raised.
Zach Davis: ...but he did not defeat newcomer Deuce Maximus, who impressed us here tonight, very much so.
The scene opens up to a place that looks a lot like Universal Studios in LA and Orlando, Florida, when you look closer at the buildings though you can see the name “ERIC PRICE.” It becomes very apparent that the studio the WCF fans are looking at is the one that Eric Price bought about a year ago when he started getting and inflated head and a coward-like attitude. There are guards that are standing; walking and making sure that only authorized personnel are on the premises. It looked like it was about 12 at night though and most people were long gone, except the security guards. Out of nowhere a security guard gets talked by a big guy wearing blue jeans, a black leather jacket and a ski mask. The tall, muscular man then talks into a radio and asks:
Ski Masked Man: Are we all clear?
You can hear the man talking on the other end of the conversation through the radio.
“Yah we are all clear.”
The masked man then asks one more question.
Ski Masked Man: So everything is set?
You can hear the chatter on the other end.
“Yah everything is set and ready to go.”
The man in the ski mask then takes off his mask and you can clearly see that it is non-other than Steeltoe Joe. Joe is smiling as big as he can smile. Joe talks into the radio one more time.
Steeltoe Joe: Ok get back here quick.
Joe looks around and then notices that there are about a dozen more guards coming his way. Joe gets into his fight stance and as they run towards him, he hits one with a spear to the midsection and then while another guard is trying to kick him, Joe grabs his leg and knocks him to the ground. Joe then starts throwing punches to the other guards left standing. One by one Joe is taking the guards out and just when you think the guards might take Joe out, another masked man comes flying out of the shadows and lands right into the pile of the guards. The masked man takes off his ski mask and who would have thunk it, Its Tek, Steeltoe Joe’s Partner in crime. Joe and Tek start beating the hell out of the dozen or so, security guards and when they finally get them all down on the ground, Joe asks…
Steeltoe Joe: Why cant we all just get along?
Just then one of the security gaurds gets up and tries to swing a baton at Joe but Joe grabs the baton and then whacks it across the skull of the security guard.
Tek: I think we got them down Joe.
Joe smiles and then speaks up.
Steeltoe Joe: Yup, I think we did too. Well Tek, we go the WCF cameras waiting for us on the outside of the gates. Let’s go out there and give everybody what they want.
Joe and Tek run as fast as they can, almost like they are on a time schedule, or they just don’t want to get caught yet, but they run and rendezvous with a few WCF camera men who are waiting right outside the gates of Eric Prices Production Studio. Joe smiles as he grabs his People’s Championship from a duffle bag he had with the camera crew. Joe then hops on top of a car roof so the camera men can get a clear view of the People’s Champion and everything he is up to and about to say. Joe clears his throat and then speaks as Tek is by his side.
Steeltoe Joe: So here I stand today, not only the People’s Pastor, but also the People’s Champion. I told everybody that Steeltoe Joe would usher in the true “Era of the People.” I also told everybody that the first action I took on behalf of the People would be against the biggest snob and crybaby in the history of the wrestling industry… Our soon to be “Former” World Heavyweight Champion, Eric Price. I told Eric, Gravedigger, Synn and everybody that I wasn’t only going to beat Eric down physically, even though that will happen soon enough, but I told people I was going to hit Price where it hurt the most… HIS PRIDE. I remember when Eric bought this Production Company, he used it to burn Bibles, push his idiotic book to success, and slam people like Jeff Purse and my friend Ty. This production studio has been one of Price’s greatest assets and almost like his crown jewel. Oh, how thieves love to steal jewels.
Joe looks around; he wraps his WCF People’s Championship around his waist and then looks straight into the camera from on top of the roof of the car. Joe speaks.
Steeltoe Joe: Now I told everybody that I was going to go down as the greatest People’s Champion in the History of the WCF, the only way I can do that is to give the people what they want. Now I know that the people like fireworks, hell we go to see them on the 4th of July every year. I know the people like cutting edge TV, that is totally why they watch WCF every week. I know the people like bright lights, smoke and flashy stuff, that’s why we all love going to music concerts! I also know that the people would love to see WCF World Heavyweight Champion Eric Price, get what he deserves here tonight. So… After a few hours of dileberation, I came up with a plan to give the people all of that which I mentioned just a couple seconds ago. Tek, can you hand me the switch now please?
Tek smiles as he pulls a trigger switch from his hoodie pocket and then hands it to Joe. Joe smiles from ear to ear. He plays with the trigger switch in his hands for a little while and then starts to talk again.
Steeltoe Joe: Ok, so if I am going to be the greatest people’s champion of all time, I am going to have to do some pretty awesome things and this one will be my first. Before I pull this trigger though id like to tell Eric Price, You might want to take that match with me after you see what is about ready to happen. Eric, you have been masquerading around as a World Champ when you are nothing more than a world class chump. I told you that this between you and I was far, far, very far from over. I hope this proves it. Eric I want you to thank me and the people for what we are about ready to do, maybe after this we can see you actually grow a set of nuts and do something about it. Ok you guys ready?
Joe looks at the people around him, he looks at Tek and they all nod. Joe goes on.
Steeltoe Joe: You guys might want to cover your ears and back up. T-Minus and 6… 5… 4… 3… 2… 1.
Joe pulls the trigger on the switch that is in his hand in before you can even blink, you can see a series of explosions going off behind Joe. ITS ERIC PRICE’S PRODUCTION STUDIO BEING BLOW TO SMITHERINES!!! Trucks are being knocked over, buildings are on fire, golf carts are flying through the air as the explosions go on and on and on, until literally every single part of Eric Price’s beloved Production Studio is in flames and blown into dust. Joe laughs and Tek is in shock. Sirens start going off and people are running around franticly as the fire is ablaze and the studio is no more. Joe looks into the camera and speaks.
Steeltoe Joe: Eric, I told you I would get you where it hurts… Let me say a few last words for your former Production Company.
Joe smiles and can barely get it out, but he manages to muster up the words.
Steeltoe Joe: Oh dear EP Studios, out of the ground you were made, and now therefore back to the dirt from whence you came. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
Joe pulls a bag of ashes from his leather jacket and then spreads them in the air. They flow in the air with the debrise and embers that are already flying around with the smoke. Tek yells out!
Tek: Joe! Hear those sirens? We need to get the hell out of here!!!
Joe jumps off the car roof and then as he and Tek are laughing they run off into the darkness of the night and disappear from the WCF camera crew. Steeltoe Joe just blew up Eric Prices multi-million dollar production studio. Eric may not like it, but Johnny Fly, Jeff Purse, Sarah Twilight, most of the WCF Locker room and ALL OF THE PEOPLE are thoroughly going to enjoy hearing Eric Price talk about this one.
“Unforgiven Too” by Metallica begins to play, as Blizzard steps out onto the entrance ramp.
Kyle Steel: This match is scheduled for one fall, with a thirty minute time limit. Now coming to the ring, standing six feet, seven inches tall, and weighing in at three hundred and forty pounds... BLIZZARD!
The hulking, painted wrestler steps down the entrance ramp, as the fans give him a warm response. He throws a fist in the air as white and blue pyro shoots off all around him.
Zach Davis: Both of the men in this match are relative new comers, but Blizzard has proved he is a force to be reckoned with. It will be interesting to see how G-Money deals with a challenge like this.
Blizzard rolls under the bottom rope, and waits for his music to die down, as blue and white sparks shoot out of the ring posts. Metallica slowly fades, and is replaced by the sound of “Backseat Freestyle” by Kendrick Lamar.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent, standing six feet, two inches tall. Weighing in at two hundred and thirty five pounds... G-MONEY!
G-Money comes dancing out onto the ramp as the crowd offers up some boos.
Zach Davis: The WCF fans have already decided that they do not like this man.
Shannan Lerch: And is it any wonder why? He's brash, arrogant, and he JUST got here. That attitude won't sell many t-shirts.
G-Money taunts some of the fans, before sliding under the bottom rope, and immediately sprints for Blizzard, while the painted man is facing away from him, stretching his arms. G-money clubs him, and immediately begins stomping on him. The ref rings the bell, and the match is underway.
Zach Davis: G-Money jumping Blizzard from behind! What a cowardly move!
Shannan Lerch: It isn't about being a hero, it's about winning.
G-Money stomps on Blizzard until he is in a sitting position, against the bottom turnbuckle. He then rises, and backs across the ring, before sprinting forward, and hitting Blizzard in the face with a low dropkick. G-Money stands up to celebrate, but fidns it is a bad idea. Blizzard rises quicker than expected, and the crowd cheers as he almost takes his opponent's head off with a massive lariat.
Zach Davis: Wow! G-Money underestimating Blizzard, and it cost him!
Blizzard drags G-Money to his feet, and gives him a few stiff slaps to the face, before whipping him into the ropes. On the rebound, Blizzard lifts his leg, and nails the smaller man with a big boot. Money this the mat, and Blizzard throws up his fists in celebration, causing the crowd to roar with approval. He then grabs his opponent's arm, and signals that it's over.
Shannan Lerch: Blizzard trying to end this one early with the Blizzard Warning.
Blizzard goes to twist him around, but G-Money scrambles, using the ropes to drag him out of the ring. He walks around on the floor, stalling, as the crowd boos him loudly. After a few moments, Blizzard gets tired of waiting, and this the man with a baseball slide, sending him into the steel guardrail. He then grabs G-Money, and tosses him back into the ring. He follows quickly, and nails Money's ribs with a few stiff boots. He then lifts the man up, and sets him in a powerbomb position. Before he can hit his finisher, G-Money quickly jabs him in the eye with a thumb. Blizzard drops him, allowing him to hit a quick DDT.
Zach Davis: A thumb to the eye from G-Money! Disgusting.
Shannan Lerch: Do what you gotta do to win. It's a tale as old as time, Zach. You can't hate G-Money for doing what he can to survive.
G-Money quickly runs to the ropes, and climbs to the top turnbuckle. While he is doing this, Blizzard recovers, and stands to his feet. He runs to the corner to intercept his opponent, but gets a boot to the head for his troubles. He stumbles backward, allowing G-Money to leap off and hit him with a big missile dropkick. Blizzard hits his back, and Money goes for the quick pin.
Money wastes no time in standing to his feet. He bounces off the ropes, and Blizzard gets to his knees. The larger wrestler is suddenly met with a knee to the face.
Zach Davis: And G-money hits a BRUTAL shining wizard!
Money drops down, and locks Blizzard in a cross arm breaker. He wrenches on the man's shoulder, as Blizzard screams out in agony. He flails for the ropes, but finds he is just out of reach. He slaps at his shoulder, and slowly rolls, so that G-money is rolled up on his back. Blizzard slowly stands, as Money holds the arm lock on tight. Showing off his massive strength, Blizzard lifts his opponent high in the air, and falls backwards, slamming him hard on the mat.
Shannan Lerch: Good god! Blizzard is an absolute monster!
Zach Davis: G-Money is no small opponent. That is quite a feat!
Blizzard rolls over, and goes for the pin.
Blizzard and Money both look equally amazed that he kicked out of that. Blizzard rises up, and bounces off the ropes. He comes after G-Money, who hops up from his knees, and hits Blizzard with a dropkick to the knee. The large man immediately drops to the ground, and clutches his leg.
Zach Davis: Money very well may have seriously injured Blizzard with that dropkick.
He immediately takes advantage, and locks the injured leg in a Boston crab. Blizzard cries out, but Money keeps the hold on tight, wrenching on the tendons in that knee. While the ref is checking on Blizzard, Money leans back, and grabs the top rope to give himself more leverage. He lets go just as the ref looks up, to avoid a break. Once he lets go, Blizzard has enough strength to kick forward, and send Money flying across the ring. Blizzard hobbles to his feet, but Money stands back up, and kicks the injured leg out from under him again.
Zach Davis: G-Money going right for that knee.
Shannan Lerch: G-Money smells blood, and he's going for the kill.
He stomps on Blizzard's knee a few times, before grabbing it, and going for a figure four. Midway through, Blizzard kicks G-Money forward, and send shim tumbling through the ropes. He hits the concrete hard, and stays there, giving Blizzard some time to recuperate. The larger man uses the ropes to stand up, as G-Money slides back into the ring. He runs at Blizzard, but the big man ducks down, and launches G-Money oevr the top rope. This time he crashes viciously, and seems to be completely knocked out.
Blizzard stands in the ring, trying to get some feeling back into his knee. Money slowly uses the guardrail to get to his feet. Money approaches the ring, and Blizzard reaches down to drag him inside, but Money grabs the back of the man's head, and brings his throat down across the top rope. Blizzard stumbles backward, and Money slides into the ring. He runs at the larger man, and leaps into the air, bringing his knee into his opponent's temple with a heavy impact.
Zach Davis: THE KING HIT!
Blizzard collapses, and G-Money goes for the pin.
Kyle Steel: Your winner... G-MONEY!!!
Zach Davis: this one was vicious, but in the end, G-Money manages to come away with the victory.
G-Money celebrates in the ring, as the crowd showers him with boos. He then rolls out of the ring, and heads to the back, leaving Blizzard laying in the ring.
Suddenly the lights go out as a spotlight centers on stage. Piano chords begin a haunting melody, accompanied by heavy drum beats. The crowd begins to cheer MASSIVELY as the video wall displays the words THE ONLY ONE.
Zach Davis: It looks like we're being joined by our Television Champion, Sarah Twilight.
Shannan Lerch: I wonder what this is about? Though I am sure it will be good.
Zach Davis: Absolutely!
Pyros shoot up from the stage as our melody finally kicks into guitar. "The Only One" by Evanescence continues to play as Sarah finally walks out onto the stage dressed casually, blue jeans and a black crop top of course accompanied by her silver pentacle. She is greeted with deafening cheers and soaks them all in. The vibrant redhead confidently swaggers towards the ring and steps inside. Pyros now shoot off from the ring posts and Sarah takes to each turnbuckle in succession, pointing out toward the crowd and smiling. The cheers become even LOUDER. The Mistress of Mischief requests a microphone and is handed one from ringside as the music does down.
Sarah Twilight: Hello Nashville!
The crowd pops loudly.
Sarah Twilight: You know, a lot has happened over the past several months for me. A lot of good things since returning here to the WCF. It's been a rollercoaster ride that I am just not ready to get off of yet. We still have so many stops to make, but I wanted to go over a few of these things with you guys. So, let's see... I won Hellimination along with Waylon Cash...in my hometown of Los Angeles. How cool is that?
Another HUGE pop. Sarah smiles a bit.
Sarah Twilight: Then I went on to win the WCF Classic....and now of course, the Television Championship, which I will be defending later on tonight.
More cheers from the crowd.
Sarah Twilight: But that's not why I am out here tonight. Those things are all great things, and I am proud of every single achievement that I have fought for since returning back in October. But of them all, the greatest is by far earning the right to challenge for the WCF World Heavyweight Championship.
The crowd erupts into a huge chorus of cheers. Sarah is smiling as she paces back and forth in the ring a few times.
Sarah Twilight: It has taken two long months....two months of fighting and scratching and clawing to be granted what I had earned back in November. And in that two months, we have seen a lot of things take place. Jonny Fly is now the owner of WCF...
Sarah Twilight: Pantheon as a whole is doing an excellent job of running the place. Things almost couldn't be better without Seth Ler--I mean Sethcretary screwing it up. I stand here as your new Television Champion...The Homegrown Players are you new tag champions....
Sarah Twilight: But as I said, almost everything is good. You see, ALSO in that span of two months, the most vile, despicable, cowardly waste of a human being in Eric Price, managed to get his hands on the World Championship.
The crowd's cheers turn to MASSIVE boos.
Sarah Twilight: I know. I know. I had to count three for him. I didn't want to, but in the end, things worked out how they did. Not everything is perfect...yet. You see, Eric Price has been running around with things on his terms. He walked out of the company with the World Championship. He hospitalized Jeff Purse to avoid defending the world championship in a rematch. He played the system to have a match with Jonny Fly at Payback knowing there would be no threat to the World Championship on that night. He has gotten by for too long already!
The crowd continues to boo at the mention of Eric Price's action as of late.
Sarah Twilight: But you see, those days of kicking back and relaxing are OVER for Eric Price! Because I hold in my hands a non negotiable, unchangeable contract that guarantees me the right to challenge Eric Price for the WCF World Championship at ANY time of my choosing over the next twelve months....
HUGE cheers from the crowd.
Sarah Twilight: That means, I could do so tonight...or next week. Maybe when Eric is at the grocery store? Checking into his hotel? Maybe at the airport? You just never know! Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, Eric Price is not safe. Eric Price is no longer able to sit by idly, coasting along with his championship reign. Because every waking moment of his life, so long as he holds that championship will be spent wondering, worrying....is this the day that Sarah Twilight comes to collect? Is this the day that my time as World Champion comes to an end?
The crowd starts chanting. Sarah smiles, shaking her head a bit.
Crowd: COLLECT IT NOW! COLLECT IT NOW! COLLECT IT NOW!
Zach Davis: Obviously these fans here in Nashville would love to see Sarah Twilight take the World Championship from Eric Price here tonight. Damn it, I want to see it!
Shannan Lerch: I am sure that we all want to see that. But timing is everything. And believe me, Sarah knows what kind of power having that over Price's head is. I think she'll wait until the right time.
Zach Davis: I think the right time is now!
Shannan Lerch: We all do, but letting emotions get in the way would be bad.
Sarah Twilight: I know. You guys would love to see me turn this contract in right here tonight and beat Eric Price for the WCF World Championship....
Sarah Twilight: Maybe I will, maybe I won't. The fact is that Eric Price just doesn't know what I will do...or when.
Crowd: DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW!
Sarah scratches her head for a moment as the crowd continues to cheer her on. Desperately wanting to see her cash in her championship opportunity against Eric Price. She looks around at the crowd, still pondering it.
Sarah Twilight: You guys want to see me challenge Eric Price here tonight?
Shannan Lerch: No, hang onto it and wait, Sarah!
Zach Davis: Cash it in, kick his ass!
She is still thinking about it and shakes her head slightly, not feeling that the time was right. Though before she could express any of this to the crowd, 'You Know My Name' by Chris Cornell hits. The crowd begins to boo like MAD as Gold lights start flashing as the music starts and as soon as Eric Price walks out, a gold spotlight shines on him. He stands on the entrance ramp, holding a microphone.
Eric Price: Excuse me but you may have forgotten, my name is Mr. Eric Price!
Crowd boos loudly
Eric Price: Thank you for your unsolicited and irrelevant opinion. Ahem, as I was saying, my name is Mr. Eric Price and I am the WCF World Champion!
Crowd: You suck! You suck! You suck!
Eric Price: So Jonny once again has decided to stick it to me, to his most prized commodity in this company by giving you a guaranteed World Title shot at any time proving to me once again that you are nothing but an attention whore!
Crowd boos even louder
Eric Price: Oh yeah, it’s clear to me that all you want is the spotlight. You can’t beat me in a straight one on one fight without cheating so you’ve resorted to getting Jonny … well let me correct that because in the end, this was your doing. You resorted to intimidating poor Seth Lerch, a man…
Sarah Twilight: You mean Sethcretary?
Crowd: Sethcretary! Sethcretary! Sethcretary!
Eric Price: You people shut your traps! I refuse to disrespect the man and still refer to him by his legal name of Seth Lerch because that is his given name. To dishonor and disgrace the man even further is nothing short of blasphemous. You know what, I still blame Jonny for not doing the right thing and putting you in your place. The fact is, you don’t deserve a title match, you don’t deserve a title shot against me. You see, this belt, THIS BELT right here, this title right here, this is mine, it’s ALL MINE! And you will never and understand me clearly, EVER take this title from me!
Zach Davis: Eric Price looking almost crazed here as he says that. He really loves that title.
Crowd: Asshole! Asshole! Asshole!
Sarah Twilight: You know Eric, you seem to be so brave from … all the way up there. Why don’t you come down to the ring right now and say that to my face?!
Crowd cheers loudly
Zach Davis: Now there’s an idea.
Eric Price mumbles “oh yeah” and starts slowly making his way down the ramp as the crowd is white hot cheering at this.
Shannan Lerch: Oh here we go, looks like a fight is going to break out tonight.
Eric continues slowly walking down the ramp as Sarah continues to goad him into it but Eric stops three quarters of the way down the ramp and nods saying “No” and starts walking away.
Zach Davis: What the?
Eric Price: No no no, I’m not wasting my talent in front of these bunch of hicks. They want to see a match like this, it’ll have to be in a better town than Nashville and in a state with some actual running water and some education because we all know here, “down South” where you marry each other’s cousins and brothers and sisters and you’re all a bunch of inbreeds, you couldn’t appreciate the quality of my work in the ring.
Crowd: You suck! You suck! You suck!
Zach Davis: Eric Price chickening out here as he walks away.
Shannan Lerch: What do you mean chickening out? He simply is not going to waste his time here in Nashville, I don’t blame him.
Sarah Twilight: Whatever Eric, use all the bullshit excuses you want but you know your time is coming and it’s coming sooner than you think. Tick tock Eric Price...tick tock.
Eric Price turns around and looks at Sarah with some concern as he grabs his World Title and coddles it firmly to keep it in his grasp as if he is afraid of losing it. He then decides to raise it up and present it to the crowd screaming out “I’M THE WORLD CHAMPION!”
“You Know My Name” by Chris Cornell plays again as Eric Price gives a huge grin to Sarah Twilight and walks away toward the backstage area.
Zach Davis: Well the night keeps moving along, and the action shows no signs of slowing down. Up next, we are treated with a tag team encounter that is sure to deliver!
Shannan Lerch: Southern Discomfort is set to square off against Kaylyn James Evans and her tag team partner, The Internet Champion, Christopher Kane.
Zach Davis: Kane was slated to defend his Internet Championship against Evans at One. However, things didn't exactly go as planned. Tonight they try to pick up the victory as partners.
Shannan Lerch: A victory over the Internet Champion and Evans would certainly bode well for Southern Discomfort as I am sure they are looking to garner some attention in the tag division.
Zach Davis: We take you now, to Kyle Steel.
Kyle Steel: The folliwng contest is scheduled for one fall....
The Lights cut out inside the arena as a the jumbo-tron lights up with a rebel flag, then all of a sudden the sounds of 'Kick it in the Sticks' by Brantley Gilbert start to resonate through out the arena.
Welcome to the home of a hillbilly
Kyle Steel: Introducing first....from Crystal River, Florida...at a combined weight of 400 pounds....“Hardcore Redneck” John Thomas and "High Flying Freak" Justin Turner...they are SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT!!!!
All of a sudden Red Pyro shoots from the stage as John Thomas and Justin Turner walk onto the stage both of their women by their sides.
Our side of a barbed wire
Justin slides into the ring as John climbs the steps and into the ring
Kyle Steel: And their opponents....
The beginning of "This Fire Burns" by Killswitch Engage begins to play as people rise to their feet.
Kyle Steel: Being accompanied to the ring by Scott Savage....at a total combined weight of 293 pounds....KAYLYN JAMES EVANS and The WCF Internet Champion "The Youngest Hero" CHRISTOPHER KANE!
A few moments pass by as out steps "The Youngest Hero" Christopher Kane, followed by Kaylyn James Evans and Scott Savage. Christopher begins to walk to the ring, slapping hands with the many fans who have their hands out over the guard rails. Meanwhile, Kaylyn stands on the stage looking around at the fans before rolling her eyes and laughing. Heading down the ramp way she takes her time soaking in the mixed reaction from the crowd, Scott Savage making his way down behind her. The WCF fans are cheering loudly for Christopher Kane as he hops up onto the ring apron before going to the turnbuckle and heading up to the top buckle. He raises his arms into the air for more noise before jumping into the ring, making a roll and popping back up to his feet. "The Youngest Hero" backs off into a corner and waits for the match to begin. Reaching the bottom of the ramp she walked to the ring before jumping up onto the apron. Stepping into the ring through the middle and top ropes she stood in the ring and looked around one last time still not caring about the crowd as the music faded.
Zach Davis: Quite an odd pairing to say the least. Both competitors under the watchful eye of Scott Savage.
Referee Charles Whitman calls for the bell. KJE and Justin Turner start the match off for their teams. John Thomas and Christopher Kane both step onto the apron in their corners. Turner and KJE start off with a tie up, and Turner with a quick shove off into the ropes. On the return he leaps up and takes her to the mat with a headscissors takedown. KJE is caught of guard and dazed. Turner follows up with a standing backflip moonsault, further stunning Evans.
Zach Davis: Justin Turner quickens the pace from the get-go! This man loves to make it look good.
Shannan Lerch: Flashy maneuvers are fine and dandy. But he takes far too great a risk with each one.
Zach Davis: I won't argue that point. High risk maneuvers are exactly what the name indicates--high risk.
Turner stays on the offensive, using the ropes as a catapult as he springboards off of them into a beautifully executed leg drop that nails KJE across the throat. Turner for the cover, hooking the leg and Whitman slides into position.
Zach Davis: KJE with the kick out. It's far too early to put her away.
Shannan Lerch: Absolutely. But every time she is forced to kick her shoulders off of the mat, she exerts energy. Turner wearing her down with that early pinfall.
Savage hops up onto the ring apron at this point as he watches his client picked apart. Whitman admonishes Savage, ordering him from the apron. Turner remains on the offensive, hauling KJE to her feet, but the distraction by Savage is enough as she sends a low blow between Turner's legs. Justin falls to his knees on the mat, clutching his groin. Kaylyn follows up with a running front kick to the knelt Turner's face, knocking him forcefully to the mat. This allows her the time to tag Chris Kane into the match. The Youngest Hero hops over the ropes with one leap and into the match.
Zach Davis: The distraction by Scott Savage already coming into play. Nasty low blow.
Shannan Lerch: Chris Kane fresh into the match and let's see if Southern Discomfort can regroup.
Turner pulls himself back to his feet and is met with a front dropkick to the face courtesy of Kane. The Youngest Hero for a springboard double stomp. Turner rolls out of the way and Christopher lands on his feet. Justin clips his leg out from under him. Kane is down and Turner bounces off of the ropes. Chris Kane back to his feet and a leapfrog. Turner into the ropes again and on the return Chris with a monkey flip that puts Turner back down on the canvas.
Zach Davis: Two high flyers. The action is lightning fast in there right now!
Shannan Lerch: Both of them well adapted to flying around the ring. But again, the more risks they take, the odds are that it's going to end up badly for one of them.
Turner staggers back to his feet after the monkey flip and Chris with a STINGING kick to the ribs. He follows up with multiple kicks, each one putting as much force as he possibly can into them. The crack of his boot against Turner's flesh echoes throughout the arena with each sharp, HARD kick. Turner drops to one knee after a high jumping kick catches him on the side of his head. Chris follows up as he backs off a few steps and nails a perfect Shining Wizard, connecting with great force. Chris Kane now hooks the leg for a pinfall. Whitman in position.
Zach Davis: And a near fall there for Chris Kane! The action is nonstop! Heart pounding....this is awesome!
Shannan Lerch: Turner needs to tag out. He's not been able to regroup since that low blow courtesy of Kaylyn.
Chris hauls Turner back to his feet to keep on the offensive. However, Turner fires off a few kicks of his own, backing the young Kane away. Justin follows up with a sitout suplex slam. Chris is down on the mat and Turner follows it up with a standing flip senton splash. Chris writhes on the mat as his hands immediately clutch his abdomen. Turner gives him no time to recuperate however as he halls the teenager to his feet and hooks him up for a Northern lihts suplex, dropping him into a leg hooked brainbuster instead. Turner now with the cover.
Chris Kane shoots a shoulder up.
Zach Davis: Turner wanting to make certain that he put the exclamation point on that one. Kane however is still in this thing.
Shannan Lerch: That was a close one though!
Turner, having Chris down, now tags out to Thomas who enters the match, continuing where Turner had left off. He brings the Internet Champion back to his feet and sends him into the ropes for an Irish whip. Kane flies at him for a cross body on the return but is caught and instead taken over with a NASTY powerslam. Chris Kane is dazed afterwards.
Zach Davis: Chris Kane now in a world of trouble. Southern Discomfort has taken back control of the match.
Shannan Lerch: And in a big way! Chris Kane needs to tag out after enduring a few high impact maneuvers.
Zach Davis: The kid has a lot of fight in him. But I agree, he needs to tag out.
Thomas again brings Chris back to his feet. He sets him up for a powerbomb, lifting the teenager high up onto his shoulders. However, Kane wiggles himself slightly and instead pulls John Thomas down into a DDT. The crowd is on their feet as the action continues to shift.
Zach Davis: And just like that, Chris Kane turns things back around!
Shannan Lerch: He bought himself some time. Now if he can make it to his corner and get the tag....
Chris starts crawling toward his corner. Still suffering the effects of the earlier onslaught. However, Thomas is able to shake off the cobwebs enough to grab hold of Kane's ankle, dragging him back to the center of the ring. Now, having prevented the tag, Thomas backs up, preparing a superkick. However, from the outside, Scott Savage grabs hold of his leg under the bottom rope. Thomas turns his attention to Savage and Chris is able to now make it to his corner and the tag.
Zach Davis: And again Scott Savage running interference!
Shannan Lerch: He is definitely hands on with his investments.
Justin Turner hops down from the apron and starts in pursuit of Savage, who backs off now. Turner grabs hold of Savage and is about to level him when out of nowhere Chris Kane comeS FLYING over the top rope after a running start and NAILS Turner with a dropkick! The Crowd comes unglued! Turner is send barrelling into the guardrail. Chris lands HARD on the mats outside, having sacrificed his own body to pull off the manuever.
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Zach Davis: My God! Did you SEE that Shannan?!
Shannan Lerch: I did! He just...wow! My eyes witnessed it, but I still don't believe it!
Back in the ring, KJE tackles Thomas down with a spear, sending a barrage of punches at him for the follow up. She hauls Thomas back to his feet and sends him for an Irish whip into the turnbuckle, but it's reversed. Thomas instead sends her hard into the turnbuckle and follows up with a splash in the corner. KJE stumbles out dazed. Thomas is there to catch her, bringing her up for a stalled suplex. He sends her CRASHING down to the mat hard.
Zach Davis: KJE is trouble now as Thomas put the kabash on her offensive flurry.
Shannan Lerch: Turner and Kane still down on the outside. This is anyone's match right now.
John hauls her back up and brings her back to the turnbuckle. He perches himself up top as he drags her along with him. He sets her up for his patented Redneck Driver. However, she battles her way from his grasp and instead sends a staggering kick to the side of his head. Thomas falls from the top and onto the canvas, dazed. KJE now perches herself on the middle rope in the corner, waiting. As Thomas stumbles back to his feet she leaps off, NAILING him with a 180 Tornado DDT that PLANTS him into the mat! KJE wastes no time as she makes the cover. Whitman into position.
Kyle Steel: Here are your winners, the team of KAYLYN JAMES EVANS and The WCF Internet Champion, CHRISTOPHER KANE!
Zach Davis: Kaylyn James Evans picks it up just like that! Wow. That came almost out of nowhere. Christopher Kane must be smiling now. He sacrificed himself to keep the momentum going and with some effort by Kaylyn, they walk away victorious here tonight.
Shannan Lerch: Anything can happen at any time. And KJE just proved that point with style!
Zach Davis: Southern Discomfort seemed to have this one wrapped up on more than one occasion. But the distractions from Scott Savage proved to be costly. In the end however, KJE was able to out maneuver Thomas to pick up the victory.
The lights in the arena fade out. After a few suspense filled seconds the words ‘The Dynasty’ appear in bold italic lettering on the jumbotron as the beginning of “300 Violin Orchestra” begins to play. A single spotlight turns on and illuminates the silhouette of a man standing on the stage. As the song begins to speed up, the lights come on revealing Jonny Fly.
Fly, wearing a suit and tie, acknowledges the crowd with a wave and briskly makes his way down the ramp toward ringside, slapping hands with the crowd as he passes. At ringside Fly uses the steel steps to elevate himself into the ring. He requests a microphone and after receiving it he positions himself in the center of the ring.
Zach Davis: Weird, Fly has already been in action tonight and decided to change into a suit, despite still having another match later in the show.
Shannan Lerch: He must be out here to talk business.
Jonny Fly: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I’m out here tonight with some very big news. First things first, the WCF Board of Directors and I have come to an agreement on the release of Tina McMillan, Harold Nolan, Stephen Cotter, and Jack ‘Twinkle Toes’ Garvin from their board positions. Apparently, due to some contract bullshit, I wasn’t able to get rid of Warren Newton yet. Emphasis on the word YET. Now, I know most of you could care less about this, but you should.
Fly takes a moment to pause.
Jonny Fly: On Monday, tomorrow, the Wrestling Championship Federation will be conducting its initial public offering. After nearly a decade of being a privately held company, the WCF will be going public. My last order of business will be filling the four vacant positions. With the WCF becoming a public enterprise, all management will now run though the Board, instead of me. I will, however, continue my leadership role as this company’s CEO and Chairman of the Board. As far as filling the last four positions on the board…
Fly smiles and begins to recite off four very familiar names.
Jonny Fly: Please welcome to the board, Corey Black, Jay Price, Jeff Purse, and Skyler Striker!
HUGE cheers from the crowd.
Jonny Fly: That’s right; Pantheon now has a majority on the WCF’s Board of Directors. That’s how it should be. For all the griping and moaning my rivals are doing, there are big things at play here, things that they don’t comprehend yet. There is no limit to the heights I’m going to take WCF and this is just another step. I would encourage them to enjoy the ride.
Fly takes another pause.
Jonny Fly: Even if they decide not to enjoy it, so be it. Our public offering is going to raise a lot of capital for this company. I won’t steal Jay Price’s thunder, but he’ll be filling everyone in in the near future about what we plan to do with that money. Rest assured, the majority of it will be put back into the hands of the wrestlers. That’s all I have to say. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the show.
Fly drops the microphone and leaves the ring, heading toward the back.
Zach Davis: Wow, Shannan. Big news tonight from Fly!
Shannan Lerch: WCF is about to be publically traded! I’m going to have to buy me some stock!
The clashing of two swords fills the arena for a couple of seconds as the lights dim, before the sound of a shotgun goes off. "Back For More" by Five Finger Death Punch starts to play as Morientes comes out from the back. Posing for the crowd for a few moments, the lights come back on as the first verse of the song is belted, and he makes his way to the ring, nodding at cheering fans or staring dismissively at those who heckle him on the way there. If time permits, he will chat/argue with a member of the WCF audience.
Morientes slides into the ring and raise his arms into the air for fan reaction. He then sheds his leather jacket in the middle of the ring, and throws it to the crowd. Next, he climbs up the upper left turnbuckle, gesturing to the crowd. After that, Morientes jumps back to the mat and starts stretching, awaiting the referee to start the match.
Kyle Steel: From Madrid, Spain, weighing in at two hundred and twenty two pounds, The Bull... Morientes!
The jumbo screens shower with static before bold red letters flash across them.
Hinder's "Save Me", accompanied by a near mesmerizing full sensory assault of decadent red purple and black strobing laser lights that foreshadows the arrival of Terry Roberts, brings the fans to their feet. 50 seconds later there are two massive wall of flames raining down onto as well as up from the main stage lasting 15 seconds, once the flames die down Terry steps into view from the billowing cloud of white smoke. Wearing a midnight black full length trench coat with red chest straps, Jiu-Jitsu gi styled black pants, purple MMA styled gloves and wrestling shoes. Looking up into the frenzied crowd he gives an arrogantly cocky smirk pointing to the ring as the screens flash more red letters.
Terry then takes a slow confident walk to the ring, once their he pulls out a black and red guitar, walks over to the nearest ringpost, raising the guitar stock blowing into it, creating an enormous fireball that floats high over the ring getting a big pop from the crowd. Putting the guitar in the ring corner Terry steps into the ring, standing in the corner with the guitar, taking off his non wrestling gear before crouching down as he stares coldly at his opponent. Putting his hands over his face, slowly sliding his fingers down so as not to streak his make up in a symblage of pulling his mask off to reveal SYNN before the bell rings.
Kyle Steel: And his tag team partner, from Birmingham, Alabama... weighing in at 270 pounds... TERRY "SYNN" ROBERTS!!!
Zach Davis: Interesting team of the very successful newcomer Morientes, along with former TV champ Terry Roberts.
Shannan Lerch: It will be interesting to see if these two can function as a team. Of course the same question could be asked about their opponents.

Shannan Lerch: .....
Zach Davis: Oh my god, CUT, we need to cut to commercial NOW.
Blizzard is seen walking towards Vengeance and Terry Roberts as the camera cuts to commercial.
As we come back from commercial, both Oblivion and Henry are already in the ring.
Zach Davis: Up next we get set for singles competition as Doc Henry set to square off against the returning Oblivion.
Shannan Lerch: Both men are in the ring and this one is ready to get under way!
The final haunting chords of Oblivion's entrance music settles down as referee Peter Laos calls for the bell. Doc Henry immediately charges Oblivion, but the God of Insanity anticipates it and instead catches Henry with a big boot. Henry's head bounces off of the canvas as he is caught off guard. Oblivion doesn't waste any time and he grabs Doc by the throat and hauls him back up to a vertical base with one hand. He then proceeds to lift Doc over his head and throws him down to the mat with a gorilla press slam. Henry crashes HARD against the canvas. Oblivion drops down immediately for the cover. Laos in position.
Henry shoots a shoulder up off of the mat.
Zach Davis: Oblivion bringing the heavy hitting right away! Doc Henry is in trouble already.
Shannan Lerch: Oblivion scares me. He has always scared me and I don't even like having to sit out here when he is around. I hope Doc Henry sends him back to hell where he came from!
Oblivion again hauls Doc to his feet and sends the confederate into the ropes for an Irish whip. Doc comes FLYING back on the return with a HARD clothesline that staggers the larger man. Henry once again into the ropes and he hits ANOTHER one that takes Oblivion off his feet. With the big man down, Henry stays on the offensive, stomping away at Oblivion. HARD boots to the face, chest and abdomen.
Zach Davis: Henry certainly going to make this one a fight. He managed to take Oblivion off of his feet and now he has to stay on the offensive.
Shannan Lerch: He's doing a good job of it. You have to wonder just how much ring rust could be affecting Oblivion? If there is any at all, Doc Henry is going to exploit it.
Henry now pulls Oblivion to his feet, only to send him right back down with a methodically executed neckbreaker. Oblivion holds the back of his skull as Henry sits up after the maneuver, satisfied. Doc gets back to his feet and perches himself on the center turnbuckle. He waves Oblivion on to get back to his feet. As he does, Doc dives off for the CONFEDERATE ROCKET! He connects with all of it and Oblivion is blasted into the canvas. Doc immediately goes for the cover. Laos in position.
Oblivion powers out just before three.
Zach Davis: So close! Doc Henry taking control of this matchup and really is taking it to Oblivion.
Shannan Lerch: Doc Henry knows how to get it done in the ring and he is making sure that Oblivion realizes he isn't going to have an easy night.
Zach Davis: Oblivion needs to get back in this thing. But Henry is showing no signs of easing up.
Henry comes off of the pinfall attempt and again brings Oblivion to his feet. However, this time Oblivion rattles him with a headbutt and sends Doc up and over with a belly to belly suplex. Oblivion remains now on the offensive as he once more grabs Doc by the throat, pulling him to his feet. Doc sends a thumb to the eye and grabs hold of Oblivion for...
Shannan Lerch: THE GAMBLER'S HAND!
Zach Davis: Oblivion is battling though!
Oblivion fires off a few hard elbows to the side of Docs head. One final shot staggers Doc off, as he turns around from the force of it. Oblivion grabs him from behind and lifts him for an inverted suplex and drops him down into a devastating stunner!

Oblivion drops down for the pinfall and Laos is there to make the count.
Kyle Steel: Here is your winner...OBLIVION!!!!
Zach Davis: Oblivion with a very impressive return here tonight. The God of Insanity is back, and I am sure that Doc Henry won't soon forget it!
Shannan Lerch: Doc came at Oblivion with everything. And I thought he had him on a few occasions, but it was just not meant to be. Oblivion was not to be denied here tonight.
Zach Davis: Well folks, we continue on with all of the great action that we bring to you each and every week. It is now time for our Television Championship Match! This one looks like it should be something. It will be decided in a triple threat contest.
Shannan Lerch: And normally, triple threat matches do not favor the champion. Because they do not have to be part of the decision in order to lose the championship. It'll be interesting to seer how that plays out with our current TV Champ, Sarah Twilight.
Zach Davis: Both The Ninja and Kale Windsor looking to pick up championship gold. In a match like this, it's hard to say how it will play out. I don't expect a easy task ahead however.
Shannan Lerch: Let's take it to Kyle Steel and get this one under way!
Kyle Steel: The following contest is a Triple Threat match, scheduled for one fall...and it is for the WCF Television Championship!
Kyle Steel: Introducing first....
"You're Going Down" by Sick Puppies begins to fill the arena.
Kyle Steel: From Los Angeles, California...weighing in at two hundred and thirty five pounds....KALE WINDSOR!!!
The song starts as the lights strobe to the beat. Smoke fills the entrance way just before Kale Windsor appears on the stage as the crowd reacts. Windsor stands at the edge of the rampway bowing his head for a moment before standing in a worship me type of taunting pose as several pyrotechnics go off behind him and he walks down the ramp way towards the ring. Half way down the ramp way, Windsor pauses for a moment before charging the ring and sliding in under the bottom rope. Kale then slithers to the middle of the ring on his stomach before standing to his feet and rushing to one of the post,jumping onto the middle rope as he does a bow and arrow type pose for a moment before hopping down and crossing the ring to the side ropes, where stands with one foot on the bottom rope and the other on the middle rope.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent....
The arena lights go dark.
"Well I am ninja,
Kyle Steel: Hailing from Japan and weighing in at two hundred and one pounds...he is THE NINJA!
The song becomes slow to silence. Suddenly, Walls of Innocence by Egypt Central is blasted through the arena. Suddenly, pyro is blasted on stage. The Ninja is standing on the titantron, hands on hips with a belt. The crowd starts to cheer. He glides down through the rafters. Nearby the ring, he lets go of the buckle and leaps down on the ring. He lands on his feet and gives the crowd an intense stare. He climbs up the turnbuckle and looks at the crowd. He raises his arm. He gets off and performs a kata. Then, he warms up.
Kyle Steel: And their opponent....
The lights go out as a spotlight centers on stage. Piano chords begin a haunting melody, accompanied by heavy drum beats. The crowd begins to cheer MASSIVELY as the video wall displays the words THE ONLY ONE.
Kyle Steel: Making her way to the ring, hailing from Los Angeles, California, and weighing in at one hundred and forty two pounds, she is the reigning and defending WCF Television Champion...."The Mistress of Mischief" SARAH TWILIGHT!
Pyros shoot up from the stage as our melody finally kicks into guitar. "The Only One" by Evanescence continues to play as Sarah finally walks out onto the stage, Television Championship around her waist. She is greeted with deafening cheers and soaks them all in. The vibrant redhead confidently swaggers towards the ring and steps inside. Pyros now shoot off from the ring posts and Sarah takes to each turnbuckle in succession, pointing out toward the crowd and smiling. The cheers become even LOUDER. As the music continues, Sarah rolls outside of the ring and finds a young fan sitting at ringside. She removes her signature "You Don't Matter" tee shirt that she wears over her wrestling attire and gives it to the young fan before returning to the ring. She stands upon one of the turnbuckles, removing the championship and holding it skyward to another round of cheers as the music dies down.
Zach Davis: This one is ready to get under way! Television Championship on the line!
Referee Emily Westbrook calls for the bell. All three competitors circle one another. Sarah keeping her eyes on both men. Windsor makes the first move as he rushes in at Sarah. She answers his advance with a few stiff punches to the face. However, The Ninja also makes his move at this time and nails Sarah in the back of the head with a roundhouse kick. Sarah stumbles forward and Windsor capitalizes by planting her with a DDT. The Ninja and Windsor share a brief stare-down for a moment that ends with a shrug on the part of Ninja. The two of them cooperate as they bring Sarah to her feet and execute a double suplex, sending the redhead back down HARD to the canvas.
Shannan Lerch: This is excellent strategy. Wear down the champion and make her a non factor in this match up. If they keep the pressure on Twilight, it makes it that much more difficult for her to retain here tonight.
Zach Davis: This is true. However, if they are successful, only one of them can walk out of here with the Television Championship. I don't think either of them are going to be willing to step aside for the other when it comes down to it.
Shannan Lerch: Strange alliances formed for the time being. Let's see if they can successfully take Sarah Twilight out of the equation.
Windsor hauls Sarah back to her feet, holding her in place momentarily as the Ninja measures her. Windsor shoves her off and she walks into a jawbreaker courtesy of The Ninja. Windsor isn't finished either as he follows up the offensive by Ninja with a Russian Leg Sweep, putting Sarah right back down to the canvas. Ninja wastes no time as he follows this right up with front flip legdrop. Sarah is dazed by the dual effort of her opponents.
Zach Davis: Well so far, this strategy is working. Sarah Twilight has been unable to mount any sort of offense in this match. The Ninja and Kale Windsor are operating as a unit for the time being. I must say a very effective way in ensuring that one of the two of them walks out of here as the new Television Champion. But will it last?
Shannan Lerch: I don't think there are any misgivings that Windsor and Ninja do not like each other. But they are co-existing for the moment with the same goal in mind--making sure that Sarah Twilight doesn't walk out of here with that belt. When the time is right, someone will take their opening.
Windsor takes to the turnbuckle as Ninja keeps Sarah down with a few well placed kicks. Kale dives from the top with a headbutt that connects HARD with Sarah's own skull.
Zach Davis: FLATLINE! Twilight is in major trouble!
Windsor almost immediately goes for the pinfall. Westbrook drops down for the count.
The Ninja YANKS Windsor away from the cover. Kale rolls back to his feet immediately and the arguing ensues. Ninja demands that he wants to make the cover to which Windsor responds with a hard fist that staggers Ninja. Windsor grabs hold of Ninja's arm and sends him into the ropes with an Irish whip. On the return Kale launches Ninja up and over with a back body drop. But the Ninja lands on his feet! As Windsor turns around he is met with a stinging back kick that connects with his gut.
Zach Davis: And here we go. The implosion has begun! I knew that wouldn't last very long.
Shannan Lerch: This is a mistake. They are allowing Twilight time to regroup.
Windsor is stunned by the kick and Ninja follows up with a Judo takedown, putting Windsor down to the mat now. The lightning quick star wastes no time as he leaps himself to the turnbuckle, launching off with a moonsault that connects on Windsor. The Ninja hooks his leg and Westbrook again slides in for the count.
Windsor shoots a shoulder up.
Shannan Lerch: Almost over right there. The Ninja was a half a second away from being the new TV Champ!
Zach Davis: Windsor still in this thing, and you have to notice that so far, effectively Sarah Twilight is not in this match up as of yet. The early onslaught by Ninja and Windsor have made this primarily a matchup between the two of them.
Shannan Lerch: But for how long? They should have done more damage.
Ninja back to his feet after the near fall and he measures Kale, who also gets back to his feet. The Ninja with some stinging kicks to the chest and ribs of Windsor, backing him into the corner. The Ninja winds up for a hard striking palm, but Windsor responds first with a NASTY headbutt and then another, catching Ninja off guard. He staggers back a few steps and Kale stays on the aggressive, sending a hard toe kick to his gut and doubling the masked competitor over. Kale now with a sunset flip, holding Ninja in place as once again, Westbrook drops down for the count.
Ninja powers out of the attempt.
Zach Davis: And now a near fall on the part of Kale Windsor. Smart idea to try and end this early. Get it over with as quickly as possible.
Shannan Lerch: Exactly. Right now, this is basically a one on one contest. If either of them can end it now, they won't have the odds of a triple threat match against them.
Windsor back to his feet, hauling the Ninja up with him, however The Ninja fires off with an enziguri that glosses Windsor's eyes over. He staggers forward a few steps and falls face first into the canvas. It takes a few brief moments, but Windsor starts shaking off the cobwebs and pushes himself up slightly with his hands. The Ninja bounces off of the ropes for a baseball slide dropkick to his face, but just as he comes off the ropes, he is BLASTED down to the canvas himself.
Zach Davis: Burst Clothesline by Sarah Twilight! She looks pissed!
Shannan Lerch: They wasted too much time fighting each other. They should have just kept on her.
Zach Davis: It is a triple threat match once again and things have just picked up.
Ninja stumbles back to his feet after the unexpected clothesline and he is lifted up for a T-Bone suplex courtesy of Twilight that crashes him down on the mat and he rolls toward the apron. Windsor has now made it back to his feet and he sends a clubbing forearm across Sarah's back. He repeats this about five more times. Finally, he grabs hold of her for a front face lock.
Zach Davis: FINAL DESTINY! HE'S GOING TO NAIL IT!
Shannan Lerch: Or not...
Sarah shoves him off and instead sends a sharp kick to his gut. She hauls him up for a Sitdown Tiger bomb, keeping him hooked for the pinfall. Westbrook slides into position.
Windsor again shoots a shoulder up.
Zach Davis: Kale Windsor managing to kick out before three. Could have been over right there.
Shannan Lerch: The intensity of this contest is boiling over. I don't know what to think.
Sarah back to her feet, begging Windsor to get back up. Windsor is slow to his feet but manages. Meanwhile, The Ninja had gotten himself back up from the apron and has perched himself on the top turnbuckle. He waits for the right moment and he jumps off, aiming at Sarah for a SHADOW KICK. Though Sarah manages to see him from the corner of her eye and she ducks out of the way. The Ninja CONNECTS with Kale Windsor, sending him down HARD! The Ninja turns around and is met with a kick to his gut courtesy of Sarah Twilight, who hauls him up for THE TWILIGHT ZONE. Ninja's head bounces off of the canvas and he rolls to the outside of the ring!
Zach Davis: Holy crap! Did you SEE that Shadow kick? Windsor is down, Ninja just got introduced to the Twilight Zone. Wow!
Shannan Lerch: Windsor is in a WORLD of trouble now!
With Windsor down and out of it, Sarah drags him toward the center of the ring. She locks up his arms with her legs and presses firmly against the back of his neck with her calves. Windsor immediately screams out in agony, fighting the searing pain.
Zach Davis: SPELLBOUND! She has it locked in and he has nowhere to go!
Shannan Lerch: If he was out of it from that Shadow Kick, this certainly woke him right back up. He might have preferred being unconscious.
Windsor struggles to find an escape as Sarah wrenches the hold tightly. She applies more press sure as she forced his neck forward with her calves, pulling back on his arms, forcing his shoulders up at the joints. Westbrook asks him if he wants to submit. Windsor screams out but refuses, fighting it with everything he could muster up.
Zach Davis: Windsor fighting through the pain. He's got to make it to the ropes but there is nowhere for him to go.
Shannan Lerch: We saw Morientes battle his way out of this maneuver at Payback. But can Windsor do the same?
Zach Davis: If he's going to, he needs to start trying to make his way there, like now....
Windsor tries to inch his way toward the ropes much in the way that Morientes had. However, Sarah pushes up on his arms even HARDER and forces his neck forward, pushing his chin into his clavicle. The searing pain in his shoulders increases. There is a small pop heard as the pressure is pushed even further. Westbrook is keeping close attention and finally, Windsor taps out to the hold. The bell is rung.
Kyle Steel: Here is your winner and STILL WCF Television Champion...."The Mistress of Mischief" SARAH TWILIGHT!
Zach Davis: What a match! Action from start to finish. In the end, our Television Champion able to close the chapter on Ninja and Windsor. Impressive victory here tonight.
Shannan Lerch: Absolutely. Things didn't look good for her at the start of things, however, she managed to get back into it and in the end, she walks away with the Television Championship in tact.
Just as everyone else left the ring, The Ninja was lying down on the ring. He was looking up at the lights. Silence had filled the arena. Slowly, he got up as someone passed him the mic.
He couldn't say anything. Tension filled the arena. He tried to say something else.
Nothing. Because of that loss, he climbed out of the ring and slowly walked back to the backstage. As he reached the ramp, he was gently tugged by a fan within the barricades. He looked and saw a boy in a mask similar to The Ninja's. There, The Ninja slowly locked heads with the boy's for 10 seconds. After that, he walked back to the stage. He looked back and saw the entire crowd. Then, he went backstage.
Shannan Lerch: Well, that was certainly depressing.
Zach Davis: Well, hopefully the next match will get our minds off of it.
Shannan Lerch: That's unlikely.
Zach Davis: I know.
Shannan Lerch: Zach, I tell ya; I thought last week we hear the last of the Atreyu / Balfore tag team but here they are yet again.
Zach Davis:They lost their belts last week at Payback to HGP but this week they have Prophecy in a regular match. We know that teams are very capable but Atreyu and Balfore are showing signs of weakening.
Shannan Lerch: only question is will those cracks show tonight?
The music plays and a Cross is lowered on stage and on the bottom of are three holes from a distance when a close up happens the holes make the bottom of the cross look like Tek's mask and smoke comes out of the mouth, and STJ and Tek come out and make there way to the ring.
Shannan Lerch: With the suspension of Tek lifted, Prophecy returns! Its great to see these guys back together.
“Capricco” by Krzysztof Penderecki hits the sound system with a loud hit of drums followed by a sharp harmony of horns and strings. Benjamin Atreyu casually steps out onto the entrance ramp, savoring the scowls of the audience. After breathing in their discontent he descends the ramp to the ring.
Zach Davis: Yah but here comes Atreyu..
Kyle Steel: Hailing from Saint Paul, Minnesota and weighing in at two hundred and thirty one pounds, self-proclaimed "God Given Greatness" Benjamin Atreyu!
He slides into the ring and jumps to his feet. He walks to the center of the ring, raising his fist in the air, as if announcing his victory was assured before the match even began. The crowd erupts in boos he steps back into his corner.
Zach Davis: And you know Shannan that as of late when Atreyu comes out.. you're favorite person isnt too far behind.
Shannan Lerch: Unfortunately.
“ With Oden On Our Side” Hit’s the PA system. The arena grows dark as the fans get to their feet to catch a glimpse of the stage. The fans stand and cheer an once the vocals starts, the arena lights flash back on and there stands Odin Balfore, centre stage. Odin stares down at the ring with a sinister grin as the fans sing along with the chorus.
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist... the battle is.. already won!
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist... the battle is.. already won!
The fans pop insanely right after as Odin begins to walk down the ramp at a slow an methodical pace. Once he gets to the foot of the ring, he steps up on it and looks around the arena again before stepping over the ropes..
Crowd: Futile to resist! You know we have come! Futile to resist...
Odin cuts off the fans as he raises his hand in triumph. Odin turns back to the ring as the fans finish their part.
Crowd: The battle is.. already won!
Odin stares down his opponents as he waits for the match to get underway.
Shannan Lerch: Can't he just break his hip and die already? I'm really sick of seeing his face.
Zach Davis: Man gets the job done.
Shannan Lerch: No, he really doesnt.
:: DING DING ::
Odin and Joe start the match. Joe's feelings brave and wants to lock up with Odin but gets throw back into his teams turnbuckle for the effort. Odin takes a running charge across the ring, he's looking for the big boot but Joe peels through the ropes and ain't nobody home to greet Odin Balfore. Joe taunts the crowd at the apron, having outsmarted Odin. Tek does good to keep his hands clean thuss far and not provoke the big man as he unsaddles the turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: Odins not lookin too happy.
Shannan Lerch: Yah, he missed. Told ya he doesnt do anythin.
Odin tries to grapple Joe but Joe sidesteps, taking the knees right out from under Odin and taking him to half mount, then full to land a series of right hands. Joe keeps on Odin, picking him up and tries for a scoop slam but Odin blocks it and clubs, reversing into a stalling suplex. Odin picks up Joe, wrenching is arm and walking him over to the corner to tag in Atreyu.
Zach Davis: Atreyu gets the tag.
Shannan Lerch: Atreyu's in the ring and kicking away at the arm of Joe as Odin keeps him in place.
The ref counts the action.
Odin lets go at four, and gets on the apron. Atreyu hooks Joe up and hits him with a spin out release fishermen suplex.
Atreyu kicks up Joe and starts hitting him with European uppercuts. He tries for a few right hands but Joe blocks and battles back. Joe has Atreyu reeling and lifts him up by one legs for a flap jack.
Zach Davis: TAG!
Shannan Lerch: Tek is in!
Tek starts with booting away at Atreyu but Atreyu gets up, shoving Tek away and and whipping him into the ropes. Tek hits the ropes and comes back into an arm drag, another arm drag, Tek blocks the third attempt and hooks Atreyu up for a falcon arrow suplex.
Tek applies a sleeper, trying to wear away Atreyus will power.
The ref checks the arm.
Atreyu keeps the shoulder up!
Atreyu battles back with elbows to the gut. Atreyu squats down and muscles Tek up and over with his shoulder but Tek lands on his feet.
Shannan Lerch: Superkick by Atreyu.
Quick pin attempt.
Tek kicks out at two!
Atreyu picks him up again for a German...
Zach Davis: Tek lands on his feet again...
Shannan Lerch: and tek reverses the German with a German.
Both men are feeling it, the superkick, the desparation German. Both men crawl towards the corners...
Zach Davis: Joe is in!... Odins back in!
Joe comes flying across the ring at full speed as Odin just climbs over the ropes..
Odin gets speared into his corner... shoulder block.. shoulder block... irish whip...
Shannan Lerch: Odin reverses
Zach Davis: He goes for another big boot.
Shannan Lerch: He hit Tek!?
Zach Davis: Joe had bailed again and Odin smashes Tek.
Joe reaches over the ropes and connects with a hard left before going on the turnbuckle..
Shannan Lerch: top rope Twisting neck breaker!
Odin just gets the shoulder up.
Zach Davis: I thought that had to be it!
Atreyu is about to enter the ring to try and buy Odin time... but instead Atreyu shakes his head "no" and simply stays on the apron. The crowd begins to boo.
Shannan Lerch: Looks like that's it! Benjamin Atreyu has finally had enough of this pairing! And Steeltoe Joe is on fire...
Odin slowly stumbles to his feet, reaching out for a tag, but Atreyu's arm isn't extended for one. Joe catches Odin.
Zach Davis: Baptism.... the pin!
Shannan Lerch: Prophacy has done it! They have beaten the former tag team champs!
Prophecy's music hits as Joe and Tek meet in the middle of the ring and begin celebrating. Atreyu looks down at his former Tag Team partner, shaking his head, before hopping off the apron and heading to the back.
Zach Davis: If these two had performed as a cohesive unit, they could've won this. But Atreyu turned his back on Balfore.
Shannan Lerch: More like the WCF bookers turned their back on both of them for continuing to force them to tag!
Zach Davis: Here we go, huge main event! Clusterfuck ahoy!
You Know My Name by Chris Cornell hits. Gold lights will start flashing as the music starts and as soon as Eric Price walks out, a gold spotlight will shine on him as he makes his way to the ring with a slow and determined walk with a smirk on his face as he walks down the entrance ramp and simply looks down on the audience. He's got the World Title around his waist. He steps in the ring using the steps and walks into the ring as he stands in the center of it looking around at the audience with disdain and a grin on his face.
Shannan Lerch: Here is the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! And you gotta believe he'll be gunning for Jonny Fly tonight.
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!!
Zach Davis: Next up is the new Hardcore Champion, Nathan von Liebert. I gotta say, he and that belt just seem right for each other.
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: And the United States Champion, up next, Stuart Slane. These three men prove that nice guys finish last, and bad guys get the belts.
“Follow Me, Boys!” plays as Stu marches out from the back, silently mouthing the lyrics to his theme as he heads down the ramp. He does a circuit around the outside of the ring before climbing the steps and entering. After some last minute old timey calisthenics (Indian twists, deep knee bends, etc) The Scoutmaster goes his corner. He hands his hat and sash off to a WCF stagehand and assumes a fighting position.
Zach Davis: Next up, Genesis!
Shannan Lerch: Roy Speede, Steve Orbit, and Waylon Cash.
The lights go dark for a moment, before quick three second snippets of various songs play over the P.A. "Professional Griefers" for FPV. "Hear Me Now" for Speede. "Flashlight" for Orbit. "White Trash Renegade" for Cash. And lastly, "The Only One" for Twilight. The crowd is on their feet, as they know what this means. At last, "Bitter End" by The Veer Union hits and the crowd ERUPTS! Roy Speede steps out first, before Waylon and Orbit join him. The three Genesis members head to the ring.
Zach Davis: And here is the only team that's better than sex. Or so I'm told.
"Parabola" by Tool hits the PA system and the crowd go crazy. Jonny Fly and Jay Price head out from the back!
Shannan Lerch: Gotta say, that's one great looking team right there. Mmm mm.
Zach Davis: Keep it in your pants, Shannan.
The two former World Champions march to the ring and slide in. They go to opposite turnbuckles and climb up them, raising their arms to the air to a chorus of cheering.
Shannan Lerch: And now, the only member of this three man team I haven't fantasized about.. yet..
“With our hands held high we're screaming..."
The crowd scream 'whoa-oh whoa-oh oh' and in doing so introduce Skyler Striker. Striker makes his way to the ring in his usual fashion, focused and determined. Once inside, he stands in the center of the ring and bows his head, his arms outstretched and fists clenched. He then opens his palms to the audience, causing white pyro to explode from the ring posts. Striker throws his effects out of the ring and prepares for the match.
Zach Davis: Here is WCF legend and former World Champion, Skyler Striker!
All three teams, nine men, are in the ring now. Each team at their own corner. Nathan von Liebert is starting for his team, with Slane and Price content to hang out on the apron for now. Skyler Striker is starting for his, and Waylon Cash for his.
Shannan Lerch: Speede and the rest of Genesis have had a bumpy road to get here. We also can't forget everything we saw earlier tonight with Skyler Striker and Pantheon! This is a complex match.
Zach Davis: Not sure who has the advantage. The bad guy team holds the belts currently, but the Pantheon team is three former World Champions. And the Genesis boys have quite a few Championships to their name as well, including the reigning Tag Team Championships of course.
Shannan Lerch: Any way you slice it, you've got the best of the best in the ring right now.
Naturally, both Striker and Cash go for Nathan. Nathan certainly doesn't lack confidence; he blocks his head, taking in the flurry of strikes from the other two men, but doesn't back down. Eventually Nathan is able to shove Cash away before blocking a strike from.. Striker.. no pun intended. Nathan gouges Striker's eyes, sending him reeling. Cash clubs him from behind, but Nathan turns and hits him with a European Uppercut, sending him reeling too.
Zach Davis: Nathan von Liebert, taking the fight right to Genesis and Pantheon here! He knew he'd be the target, and he's prepared.
Shannan Lerch: The No DQ stipulation may favor the Hardcore Champion, Nathan von Liebert... or it could favor Roy Speede, a man that held that belt for over 180 days.
Nathan turns to Striker and jumps, going for a Hurricanrana, but Striker reverses it in mid-air and Powerbombs him!
Zach Davis: Oof!
Striker stomps at Nathan several times before backing off. He runs to the ropes and Springboards as Nathan has been stumbling up, and hits a DDT!
Shannan Lerch: Beautifully executed!
Striker gets up as the fans are roaring for him and tags in Jay Price next. Price enters the ring as Nathan is up again and Clotheslines him, sending him out of the ring. He then meets Cash in the middle of the ring and the two begin trading blows. Price gets the upper hand and goes to throw Waylon to the ropes, but Waylon reverses it, sending Price to the ropes instead. As Price comes back, Waylon hits him with a Snap Powerslam!, into pin!
No, Nathan grabs Waylon and pulls him out of the ring. Nathan hits Waylon with a stiff shot to his head before smashing his head into the ring post!
Zach Davis: Here is where no DQ comes into play. Ad if Waylon gets busted open, we'll see a whole 'nother side of Nathan...
Out of nowhere, Jay Price runs and hits Nathan with a Baseball Slide! Nathan flies back. This gives Cash the opportunity to grab him and roll him back into the ring. Cash climbs in with him, watching Price carefully as he enters. Cash and Price work together momentarily, picking Nathan up and throwing him to the ropes.
Shannan Lerch: These kinds of matches make strange bedfellows!
As Nathan is coming back, he stretches out both his arms and takes both Price and Nathan down! He then turns and dives, tagging in Stuart Slane.
Zach Davis: Here comes the United States Champion!
Slane comes in and goes right on the attack, running at Jay Price and hitting him with an elbow to the head. In the meantime, Waylon Cash has tagged in Steve Orbit.
Shannan Lerch: No love lost between the Scoutmaster and my former pimp, Steve Orbit!
Zach Davis: Did you just say Steve Orbit used to be your pimp?
Shannan Lerch: Oh! No, sorry, that was a slip of the tongue. Didn't mean it.
Zach Davis: How much did you charge for a "slip of the tongue," Shannan?
The Tag Team Champion waits for Slane to turn around before hitting him with a knife edge chop to the chest. The crowd whoooo!s, and Orbit hits him with another. Slane's face contorts with pain and Orbit throws him to the ropes, hitting a Standing Dropkick as he comes back.
Shannan Lerch: Genesis, in control now!
Slane gets back to his feet and Orbit hits him with a series of low kicks, in the knee and thigh area. He then grapples him for a Belly to Belly.
Zach Davis: Can Orbit pull it off on Slane?!
No!, Slane headbutts Orbit before he can hit the move on the big man. Slane breaks free and runs at Orbit, going for a Lariat, but Orbit ducks it. Slane turns and Orbit kicks him in the gut and DDTs him to the mat!
Shannan Lerch: No matter how big you are, having your head spiked to the mat has gotta hurt!
Orbit gets back up and is met with a Running Dropkick to his face courtesy Jay Price! Orbit stumbles backwards into the turnbuckle, and Price runs at him and knees him in the face!
Zach Davis: Ouchies.
Shannan Lerch: ...ouchies? What the hell, Zach. A man got kneed to the face. You can think of something better to say than "ouchies."
Zach Davis: ....fair enough. You're right.
Price then throws Orbit out of the ring and turns his attention to Slane.
Shannan Lerch: Jay Price has had his eyes set on the United States Title for a WHILE now, so yeah, Slane is definitely in his sights.
Slane is up and Price runs at him... but Slane picks him up in a Gorilla Press!
Zach Davis: Oh no!-
And Slane drops him into a Flapjack Powerslam!
Shannan Lerch: HUGE MOVE! THIS IS IT!
Slane pins Price!
No, Jonny Fly enters the ring and breaks it up. Slane gets to his feet, glaring at the owner of the company. Fly sarcastically gives him the three fingered scout salute, which only enrages the Scoutmaster. Slane runs at him, going for a Clothesline, but Fly ducks it. Slane turns and, without missing a beat, lunges and takes Fly down with a Clothesline From Hell!
Zach Davis: OOF!
Shannan Lerch: The Scoutmaster can't be stopped!
Fly rolls out of the ring. Jay Price is up, however, and as Slane turns around Jay runs at him and hits an Enziguri!
Zach Davis: Once again, concentrating on the big man's head.
Orbit is back in the ring now and spins Jay around..
Shannan Lerch: Pimp Slap from Steve Orbit!, and boy does that hurt.
Orbit follows up with a Jawbreaker to Jay Price. Orbit then tags in Roy Speede.
Zach Davis: Here comes the former Hardcore Champ!
Speede Springboards from the top rope and hits Price with a Leg Drop! Speede quickly covers Price.
No!, Price kicks out.
Shannan Lerch: So much talent in this match... how will it ever end?
Speede picks Price up but Price breaks away by taking him down with a Short Arm Clothesline. Price then tags in Jonny Fly, to a big pop.
Zach Davis: Here comes the owner and multi time Champion!
Speede is up and Fly runs at him, hitting a Clothesline and taking him back down. Speede gets up again and Fly Spears him down!
Shannan Lerch: No love lost between Fly and Speede, that's for sure.
Fly hits Speede with several closed fists, as Slane tags in Eric Price.
Zach Davis: AND HERE COMES THE WORLD CHAMPION!
Slane doesn't get back onto the apron, however. Instead he Headbutts Fly from behind, spins him around and picks him up.
Shannan Lerch: What is Slane doing here?
Price watches Fly, grinning as Slane tosses him towards Price... and Price catches him and Powerbombs him to the mat!
Zach Davis: OUCH!
Shannan Lerch: Now THAT'S revenge, from your World Champion!
Price pins Fly, hooking his leg.
No!, Fly kicks out! Eric gets up and begins arguing with the referee.
Zach Davis: Not too wise, Eric, not too wise...
As Eric is arguing, Speede puts him in a Full Nelson from behind and hits a Lifting Full Nelson Bulldog!
Shannan Lerch: Speede takes down the World Champion!
Zach Davis: Some people say Roy Speede is one of the best in WCF NOT to have held the World Title yet, Shannan.
Speede immediately locks in the Anaconda Vise on Price!
Shannan Lerch: Well he might just be granted a Title shot if he can make Price tap out, I bet!
Eric screams in pain, but refuses to tap. Fly is up, quickly breaking up the Vise.
Zach Davis: As much as Fly would like to see Eric Price tap out, I'm also sure he doesn't want it to be at the hands of Roy Speede.
Fly tags Striker back into the match. Striker waits for the right moment and Springboards as Eric is up, into a Hurricanrana pin!
NO!, Eric kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: Skyler Striker almost pinned the World Champ!
Striker picks Eric up, but Eric hits him with a low blow as he does.
Zach Davis: ...naturally.
Striker goes to kick Eric, but Eric catches it and hits Striker with a Dragonscrew Legwhip! Eric then dives and tags Nathan von Liebert back into the match.
Shannan Lerch: The Hardcore Champ and public enemy number one, back in!
Nathan stomps away at Striker, until Speede is up. Speede spins Nathan around and hits him with several strikes to the face before throwing him to the ropes and picking him up in a Fireman's Carry.
Zach Davis: HERE COMES THE SILVER SLICE!
Speede hits it! Before he can go for the pin, Waylon is yelling, asking to be tagged in.
Shannan Lerch: Waylon wants his revenge on Nathan! He doesn't want Speede to end this match quite yet!
Speede tags Waylon in. Waylon enters the match and waits for Nathan to get up. Once he's to his feet, Waylon runs at him, going for his high knee.
Zach Davis: Here comes the Georgia Two Step!
But Nathan sidesteps it!, goes for a Shining Wizard. Cash ducks that, kicks Nathan and hits a Double Arm Brainbuster!
Shannan Lerch: KILLSHOT!
Waylon's about to pin Nathan, but Jay Price runs at him and Clotheslines him out of the ring.
Zach Davis: Striker tagged Jay back into the match in the midst of all that!
Price then measures Nathan, who is pulling himself to his feet via the ropes.... Nathan turns...
Shannan Lerch: THE DOWNFALL!
But NO! Nathan catches Price mid-Downfall and shoves him away! Nathan gets ready to go back on the attack but Waylon trips him from behind and pulls him out of the ring.
Zach Davis: Waylon Cash won't let Nathan go! He's out for blood!
Waylon hits Nathan with shot after shot to the head. Meanwhile, in the ring, Slane enters and runs at Jay from behind, hitting him with a Lariat!
Shannan Lerch: All hell is about to break loose!
That brings Steve Orbit into the ring as well, running at Slane and jumping at him, hitting several punches to his head but not knocking him down. Jay gets to his feet and he and Orbit nod to one another before hitting Slane with a big Double Suplex!
Zach Davis: Someone needs to get control here, Slane and Orbit are NOT legal men!
Outside the ring, Waylon goes to throw Nathan into the announcer's table, but Nathan reverses it and sends Waylon into the table instead.
Shannan Lerch: AH! Get out of here!
Waylon crashes into it. Nathan tries to lift him onto it but Waylon shoves him away, grabs an unused chair and waffles Nathan with it right in the face!
Zach Davis: OOF!
Nathan drops back, into the guardrail. Cash runs at him and Clotheslines him, sending both men into the crowd!
Shannan Lerch: Come on, guys, get back into the ring! We have a match going on, you can't just go into the crowd!
Zach Davis: I fear for the fans' safety when Nathan is anywhere near them.
Waylon lifts Nathan up and hits him with several more closed fists to his head, and Nathan hits Waylon with several shots himself.
Shannan Lerch: This match has broken down, and I don't think there's any saving it.
Inside the ring, Price and Orbit are both stomping away at Slane. They lift Slane up and both go to throw him to the ropes, but Slane has had enough, and holds his ground. The two smaller men try to throw him again, but to no avail. The US Champ breaks free and Clotheslines down both men!
Zach Davis: What power!
Orbit stumbles away and tags in Speede. Speede enters the ring and runs at Slane, but Slane is able to catch him with a Spear into Spinebuster!
Shannan Lerch: Lanzarse!
Slane goes to pin him, but Price grabs Slane from behind and spins him around...
Zach Davis: DOWNFALL!
PRICE HITS SLANE WITH THE DOWNFALL! Before Price can go for the pin, Slane rolls out of the ring. Price looks down at him, about to go out after him, but Speede rolls Jay up from behind!
NO!, Jay gets out of it! Both Jay and Roy get to their feet, beginning to brawl. Meanwhile, Nathan and Cash have continued brawling in the crowd, moving up to the concession stands!
Shannan Lerch: I don't even know who is legal anymore. Nathan and Cash were, but...
Zach Davis: It's No DQ. Does it even matter?
It DOES matter because the numbers now favor Pantheon, since none of their members ended up brawling into the crowd. Price goes for a Clothesline but Roy ducks it and locks in a Full Nelson.
Shannan Lerch: HERE COMES THE SILVER BULLET!
Speede lifts Jay up but Jay gets out of it!, grabs Speede and hits THE DOWNFALL!
Zach Davis: ANOTHER DOWNFALL!
Price dives and tags in Striker, who is already perched on the top. Striker dives off the turnbuckle...
Shannan Lerch: SKYLER HIGH DIVE!
Striker pins Speede.
Orbit and Price enter the ring.
Only to be intercepted by Jay and Fly!
Zach Davis: PANTHEON WINS!
The bell sounds as Parabola plays over the speakers. Striker rolls off of Roy, who quickly rolls out of the ring. Fly has just Clotheslined Eric out of the ring, and Price has cleared the ring of Orbit. The two help Striker to his feet.
Shannan Lerch: Once Nathan and Cash ended up going into the crowd, everything turned in favor of Pantheon, as it was basically a handicapped match for a bit. And Pantheon used that to their advantage.
Orbit and Speede regroup on the outside, trying to figure out where Waylon went. Eric simply grabs his World Title and backpeddles up the ramp, not caring about his teammates. Slane grabs his US Title and begins heading up the ramp as well.
Zach Davis: Where ARE Waylon and Nathan, anyway?
They're off by a merchandise table with a bunch of shirts and the like. Waylon has Nathan dazed, and throws him onto it. He then begins climbing up stairs, as the fans cheer around him. He reaches a level above Nathan.
Shannan Lerch: Oh no... what is Waylon thinking here!?
Cash takes a deep breath... and dives from one level to another, putting von Liebert through the table with a Swan Dive Headbutt!
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD!
Shannan Lerch: Get medics up there!
Both Nathan and Cash lay in the wreckage as Pantheon celebrates in the ring.
Zach Davis: Well-
But amidst all THAT, Eric Price is back in the ring, behind the members of Pantheon!
Shannan Lerch: Oh what now!?
Price runs at Fly and hits him in the back of the head with the World Title! Striker and Price both turn at the last moment, then BOOM! Price hits them with the World Title as well! The crowd boos heavily as the Pantheon members roll out of the ring, Jay with a bloodied face!
Zach Davis: What was THAT for, Eric!? Once their backs are turned you attack? Some World Champion...
The crowd boos as Eric holds his Title up in the air.
Zach Davis: Wait-- what is this?
Shannan Lerch: Turn around Eric!
The crowd ERUPTS as SARAH TWILIGHT hops the barricade from within the crowd and slides into the ring behind Eric Price. The World Champion turns around and nearly jumps out of his skin seeing Twilight there. She sends a well placed kick to his gut, doubling him over as she hauls him up for THE TWILIGHT ZONE!
Zach Davis: Eric Price is OUT! He's OUT!
Shannan Lerch: Is she cashing in? Oh my God she is, isn't she?
Zach Davis: I don't know! I don't see a referee.
Eric is PLANTED into the canvas and the crowd is cheering WILDLY. Sarah drops down over him for a mock pinfall and she slaps the canvas as the crowd excitedly counts along with each slap.
Sarah rises back to her feet, staring down at Eric with a smirk upon her face. She takes hold of the WCF World Championship and looks at it briefly before leaning down over Eric, placing it across his lifeless body. She mouths to him as she snaps her fingers.
Sarah Twilight: Just like that, it can all be over for you Eric. Just.Like.That.
Zach Davis: Sarah Twilight sending a CLEAR message to our World Champion. His fate is in her hands. And in the blink of an eye, he could have just lost the world championship!
Shannan Lerch: I can't believe she just did that. Oh thank God there was no referee. Eric would have gone insane had she just cashed in.
Finally, MS-13 and Gravedigger rush down the ramp to ringside and Sarah quickly hops back over the barricade and into the MASSIVELY cheering crowd. Eric Price starts coming to in the ring. When he wakes up, his eyes dart around, desperately looking for his world championship. When he sees that it is still there, he cradles it in his arms with a heavy sigh of relief, knowing it could have been over. Sarah is still smirking looking back at the ring from deep in the crowd.
Zach Davis: Eric Price realizing that his days as the World Champion could very well be numbered. But the question is when? When will Sarah decide to cash her golden opportunity in?
Shannan Lerch: Only time holds the answer to that. That's all the time we have for tonight.
Our final images show Eric Price in the ring, looking on furiously as Sarah Twilight continues to make gestures of securing the world title to him from the crowd. We fade to black.
