the Merriot Center in Provo, Utah
WCF begins live with a shot backstage in the locker room. There is a door marked "BROTHERHOOD PRIVATE LOCKER ROOM" and from within we can hear chattering inside, excited chattering at that. Presumably it is the Brotherhood members getting together to prepare for their matches tonight. To the side of the door, however, is the only member not with the group.
FPV is sitting down on a wooden bench next to the private room, changing on his own. On top of his usual wrestling tights he's wearing his new Brotherhood t-shirt, and he's just finished lacing his boots when the door opens and Psychopomp pops his head in.
Psychopomp: Ah, there you are! What're you doing out here away from the group?
FPV: Getting dressed for my match, like the rest of you should be.
Psychopomp: Ah! I don't even HAVE a match this week!0 I guess you're not gonna come inside?
FPV: Nope. Perfectly fine out here.
Psychopomp: Shoot. Well in that case I'll just have to give the cookies to you out here.
Psychopomp goes back into the private locker room, and when he comes back out there is a full plate of cookies in his hands. He sets them beside FPV on the bench.
Psychopomp: Consider this my official welcoming present into the Brotherhood. I hope you like them, they're awesome.
And just like that, Pomp heads back inside. Frank is a little perplexed by this, but after making sure no on else is looking, takes one of the cookies and takes a bite. His face is one of pleasant surprise, and continues eating as the camera cuts back to the ring.
Rise vs Sean Steadman vs Trevor Lomax vs Mike Emerick
The arena goes dark with dim blue lighting as “Bodies” by Drowning Pool hits. As soon as the music picks up fire flares flash from the stage atop the ramp where Rise will be seen with his arms folded across his chest.
Kyle Steel: This match is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, making his way to the ring, accompanied by Alexis Martin, from Orlando, Florida, Rise!
He scans the crowd for a moment then makes his day down the ramp high fiving a few fans along the way. He circles the ring before flat foot jumping up onto the apron and entering between the 2nd and 3rd ropes.
Zach Davis: What an opener we have here tonight, folks! Rise appears to be the ladies man here.
Freddy Whoa: Yeah, all the cheers Rise got were from the ladies in this crowd!
Zach Davis: Rise is also accompanied by Alexis Martin
Freddy Whoa: Yeah, she somehow reminds me of Stacy Keibler...
Kyle Steel: And his opponent, from Silverlake, California, weighing in at 218 lbs., Sean Steadman!
The bigscreen shows the POV of Sean’s phone as he poses for the camera and pans it around the arena, all with a rather arrogant air.
Kyle Steel: And also from Silverlake, California, weighing in at 260 lbs., Trevor Lomax!
He walks down the entrance ramp taking selfies with fans and enjoying the adulation.
Zach Davis: The Millennial Falcons are technically up against each other in this match, will they team up against the other two?
Freddy Whoa: I’m not sure. I don’t think anyone knows, not even the Millennial Falcons!
Kyle Steel: And now, from Anchorage, Alaska, at the height of 6’6, “The Bretwalda of Backbreakers” and “Alaska’s Hottest Export”, “M.E” Mike Emerick!
As "Don't Stop" begins to play over the loudspeakers, lights begin to flash on the stage. As the song begins to kick up, the lights stop flashing and shine an almost blinding glow. When the glow stops, Mike Emerick stands on the stage, a smug grin on his face. He confidently walks down to the ring, stopping every once and a while to antagonize fans on ringside. When he gets to the ring, he stands on the top turnbuckle and holds his arms in a Christ-like pose. After descending from the turnbuckle, he begins to stare down and taunt his opponent
Zach Davis: Emerick has quite a few nicknames there!
Freddy Whoa: (sarcastically): Really, now?
As the bell rings, Kyle is quick to escape the ring as the four men instantly run at each other and start trading fists.
Zach Davis: Rise is trading fists with Steadman, but Emerick already gaining control over Lomax.
After a couple more blows to the face, Lomax is eventually dropkicked out of the ring.
Freddy Whoa: And this one’s already spilling out of the ring!
Zach Davis: Wait, Emerick is going to the top rope?
Emerick is perched on the top rope waiting for Trevor Lomax to stand on his own two feet.
Zach Davis: I think ‘M.E.’ is looking for a Flying Clothesline... Look out!
Freddy Whoa: Sean Steadman just threw Mike Emerick off the top rope on to the concrete outside! Just before Emerick was going to leap onto Lomax!
Zach Davis: Sean just saved Trevor Lomax!
But Rise clotheslines Sean Steadman out of the ring. Realising he’s the only person in the ring, Rise does some poses to impress the ladies... especially his manager, Alexis Martin.
Zach Davis: I think Rise is getting a little distracted doing some poses...
The oohs and aahs of fascination turn into oohs and aahs of excruciation as Rise spins around into a Superman Punch of impatience by Trevor Lomax, who discretely entered the ring.
Freddy Whoa: A perfectly executed “I can’t even” by Lomax.
Zach Davis: Lomax goes for the pin...
Freddy Whoa: Kickout at 2 by Rise! How did he even do that?
Meanwhile, Sean Steadman and Mike Emerick were having a brawl outside the ring and take matters between the ropes.
Zach Davis: Rise is still on the ground after that devastating manoeuvre. So, Trevor Lomax gangs up on Mike Emerick with Sean Steadman.
Freddy Whoa: A smart tactic from the Millennial Falcons. Even though this is not a tag team match, they still work together to take down probably the most powerful man in the ring.
Rise slowly gets up as the hurt Mike Emerick rolls out of the ring. The Millennial Falcons turn towards Rise, who is now standing on two feet.
Zach Davis: Oh no, Trevor Lomax has got Rise in a Powerbomb position...
Alexis Martin covers her eyes, she can’t watch this...
Freddy Whoa: Lomax has just bombed Rise in the middle of the ring!
Then, Steadman hits a leg drop on Rise immediately after he got powerbombed.
Whoa and Davis: JOMO!!!
Steadman goes for the pin, but is interrupted by Lomax.
Zach Davis: They must be arguing about who’s going to pin Rise!
Freddy Whoa: Well, they won’t argue for much longer, Mike Emerick has just come back into the ring.
Mike Emerick grabs Sean Steadman and throws him over the top rope into the barricade.
Freddy Whoa: What strength!
He then takes hold of Trevor Lomax and puts him into a full nelson into an Irish Curse backbreaker
Zach Davis: Welcome to Anchorage, motherfucker!
The crowd isn’t too happy with this, and they break into a chant.
Crowd: M. E. SUCKS! M. E. SUCKS! M. E. SUCKS! M. E. SUCKS!
Emerick turns to the crowd and gives a mad glare.
Zach Davis: Oh dear, he’s done the mistake of turning his back to the downed Rise.
Freddy Whoa: Rise with the Possum Pin, and maybe a win!
Zach Davis: Rise has just won with a possum pin to Emerick!
Freddy Whoa: I though Rise was done for!
Rise walks around in disbelief, accompanied by Alexis, who is also shocked. Both the Millennial Falcons are downed, but Mike Emerick just stares at Alexis and Rise in anger.
Zach Davis: ‘Alaska’s Hottest Export’ isn’t too happy with this.
Mike Emerick snatches Rise and hits him with a Crucifix Powerbomb.
Zach Davis: EMERICK BOMB!!
Freddy Whoa: Jeez, Mike Emerick is a bit of a sore loser...
Alexis Martin swiftly escapes the ring before she can get punished by Emerick. M.E. is staring at Rise as Slam fades to a commercial.
Sarah Twilight Segment
Freddy Whoa: What a Slam it has been so far! We're now well on the way on the road to ONE and I can already tell you, folks, it is going to be one hell of a PPV!
Zach Davis: That's right, Freddy and… Im getting news that a big star has just entered the area! Let's cut backstage to see what's going on! I can't wait to see who it is!
The cameras cut backstage as it shows a long black limousine pulling into the area. The crowd cheers with anticipation as the cameras zoom into the passenger door. After a short while the door eventually opens and the crowds cheers immediately turn to boos as Sarah Twilight steps out with her gym bag slung over her shoulder and a confident grin on her cold lips.
Zach Davis: Looks like Sarah Twilight is ready to compete tonight! After what happened last week during Helloween you know this is going to be brutal whoever is unlucky enough to face her!
Freddy Whoa: Yep and… OH MY GOD!!!
The live crowd gasps in absolute horror as a silver jeep CRASHES into Sarah Twilight, throwing the red head up into the air and crashing her skull down against the windscreen. The jeep comes to an immediate stop straight afterwards, with smoke coming off the tires as they screech across the concrete floor.
Zach Davis: SOMEONE JUST RAN OVER SARAH TWILIGHT!!! I DONT BELIEVE WHAT I HAVE JUST SEE!!!
Freddy Whoa: You don't think… wait… What?!! Lilith?!! Lilith ran her over?!!! Whoa!!! I did not see that coming!
On screen Lilith is seen sprinting out and around the car towards the downed Sarah with a look of pure terror on her face as she notices that her former lover is not moving.
Lilith: Sare Bear!!! Oh my GOD BEAR I am soooooooo sorry!!! You knows how bad I ams at drivings!!! Please be okayz… PLEASE!!!
Lilith begins to check on the still dead still Sarah as she clearly starts to panic.
Lilith: HELP!!! SOME-BEAR-DY HELP!!! Sare Bear come on… wake up! HELP!!!
Zach Davis: We need to get some medics back there immediately! You really think that she didn't mean to do that?
Freddy Whoa: I… I dont know!
Lilith: Sare Bear! Don't worrys… don't worrys… I knows EXACTLY what will make you all betters!!!
Zach Davis: Someone please get back there before this psycho starts trying to jam cookies into her mouth…
Lilith reached into her bra and finally brought out a ring bell!
Zach Davis: Wait… What?! You don't think… OH MY GOD!!! Someone stop this!!! STOP THIS!!! This is not right!!!
On screen Lilith is seen repeatedly throwing a ring bell against what remains of Sarah Twilights face, which was now nothing but a broken in bloodied mess. Again and again Lilith throws the ring bell until finally staff make it to the scene and pull Lilith away from the downed, broken and bloodied Sarah Twilight.
Freddy Whoa: She's dead… Sarah Twilight is definitely dead.
Medical staff immediately start to check on Sarah as Lilith is seen being dragged away from the scene with a sick, twisted smile on her face.
Lilith: You thoughts I forgot Sare Bear?!! LILITH NEVER FORGETS!!! NEVER!!! I HOPES YOU DEAD, BITCH!!!
Zach Davis: This is just… I can't believe this. I never thought Lilith would do a thing like this, especially not to Sarah Twilight!
Freddy Whoa: I have no words for what we have just witnessed… just, just cut to commercial! I think I'm going to throw up!
Tek vs Sebastian Stone vs Ishi Yagami
The lights go off in the arena, than "one step closer" plays the lights come on and Tek is standing on the top of the stage and looks around. The fans give him a mix reaction. He walks down to the ring and slides in and stands in the ring and looks at the crowd.
The lights dim simultaneously on out in the Wrestling Championship Federation arena as it plunges into darkness as "Critical Acclaim" By Avenged Sevenfold begins to blare on out of the PA announce system across the arena as if on cue, out of nowhere SEBASTIAN STONE whom other wise is known as "BROADWAY'S FINEST" appears out in front of the black WCF logo curtains as he does he can be seen swinging around to face the fans.
Once seen, the fans of WCF can be heard booing him and chants of "Stone Sucks" can be heard along with "Pay Your Dues" and "You can't wrestle", and the most notorious chant which is almost heard instantly "You can't Act" can be heard as he stands in the center of the stage looking out into the darkness that surrounds around him.
Ring Announcer: "Coming from Los Angeles, California he weighs in tonight at Two-hundred and Twenty-Eight pounds and stands approximately Six’ foot in height... he is Broadway's Finest... SEEEEBASTIAN STTTTTONE!!!”
Stone slowly walks down the entrance aisle, as he does he stands in the center of the isle as a white piercing light comes shining down upon him and illuminating his figure which can be seen being illuminating under the light as he stands in the entrance aisle as he continues looking out into the darkness that surrounds him for a few seconds more.
As he does various photographer come running up the entrance aisle and began taking various snapshots of him. Stone does a few taunts as the photographers continue to snap photo’s of him as he slowly continues walking on down the entrance isle soaking in all the hatred from the nearby fans of VOW at ringside, various flashes continue to be seen going off around him.
As Stone does he can be seen wearing a emerald green, and yellow feather boa around his neck which can be seen being lit up under the white light, Sebastian soaks in the jeers, and chants of disdain from the fans as he does money can be seen falling from the ceiling of the arena into the stands of the nearby fans. His eyes burn with intensity and hatred the more closer he gets to the ring as he thinks more and more about his opponent, his body pounding with adrenaline with blood lust on his mind as he makes his way down to the ring.
As Stone slowly walks on down the aisle he can be seen ignoring the nearby fans, once at ringside Sebastian walks around to the steel steps and slowly walks on up them, before entering the ring finally. Once inside the ring Stone climbs the nearest turnbuckle and throws out his arms ((Viva Randy Orton)) as he continues to soak in the jeers, and hatred from the fans at ringside and those that can be heard throughout the arena being shown toward him as he waits for his opponent to come on out from behind the black curtain to do battle.
Ishi Yagami comes out to Muse's "Cave". He stands at the ramp for quite some time, looking around the arena before making his way down the ramp. He makes very little interaction with the crowd aside from some nodding to particular audience members here and there and wastes little time getting up the stairs and into the ring as the chorus of the song hits. He sits down in his corner, holding on to the top rope with both hands and rocks himself slowly back and forth.
Zach Davis: Here we go! Tek made his surprise return last week attacking these two men.
Both Stone and Ishi run at Tek and start attacking him but Tek blocks their attacks. He fires back with several strikes of his own to both men before he sends Ishi to the ropes. As Ishi comes back Tek hits a Dropkick. Tek then turns to Stone and Stone rushes him - but Tek kicks him in the gut and executes a Spine Breaker!
Freddy Whoa: Great technique from Tek there!
Ishi Yagami is up and grabs Tek from behind, grappling him for a German. Tek elbows out of it and as he turns, Ishi runs at him. Tek kicks him, doubling him over before pulling him in and lifting him up for a Crucifix Powerbomb.
Zach Davis: He hits the Cliffhanger!
Tek pins him.
No!, Stone breaks it up. Stone lifts up Tek and goes to execute a Vertical Suplex, but Tek shifts his weight and lands behind Stone. Stone spins around and is hit by an Enziguri by Tek!
Freddy Whoa: He calls that the Time Stopper!
Stone rolls out of the ring as Tek turns and Ishi Yagami has stumbled up. Tek pulls him in.
Zach Davis: D.O.D. ! Tek hits it!
Tek pins Yagami after the Crucific Lift Flipped Piledriver.
Freddy Whoa: The Dark Hero wins in his return match to WCF!
The bell sounds as Tek gets to his feet.
Zach Davis: What does the future hold for this man?
"Woke up this morning" starts playing and Michael Gotti walks out in a pin stripe black suit carrying a tennis racket. He starts walking towards the ring smiling.
Gotti: Ladies and gentlemen right after Helloween I told you I had a hug announcement. I've already let everyone know about Adam Young so that's not the huge announcement.
Crowd: One Sick Bastard!
Gotti shakes his head and acts like he is wiping a tear away.
Gotti: I've sent the rest of the Yung Moon Dragons back to Asia to continue training. Tonight I introduce the WCF to the Gotti Family! First off he will out wrestle anyone anywhere at anytime, I give to you "The Crown Jewel" Owen Rude!
"Take it all" by Pop Evil starts playing and out walks this 5'10", 205 lbs. man in a black leather jacket, black leather pants, no shirt and a black skull cap with "Crown Jewel" written on it.
Gotti: To round out the family I have a tag team so violent that I had to pay Seth Lerch a one million dollar bond just in case they kill someone in a match here in WCF so he will not be liable. I give you the Serial Killers, Arawn and Slasher!
"Hallowed be thy name" by Iron Maiden starts playing and a man looking like Michael Myers and one looking like Jason Voorhes step out next to Owen Rude.
Gotti: WCF you either pay for protection or we take it.
Jayson Price/David Sanchez/Zombie McMorris vs Fuego Del Eterno Infierno Silencioso/Lupus Onyx/Jaice Wilds/Chaos/Doc Henry
All of the lights in the arena drop as the crowd silences with anticipation. Moments pass before "Explosia" by Gojira hits the arena speakers at a near deafening volume. The crowd lets loose with boos as a lone spotlight comes on and shines on the stage. Jayson Price walks out from the back to near nuclear heat from from the crowd, a grin on his face. He waves the crowd on from the top of the ramp, trying to get them to be louder. He then starts down the ramp, avoiding the grubby and dirty hands of the few fans that try to show him love, before stopping to knock the phone out of the hands of a fan trying to take a selfie. After laughing at the fan, he'll steal a beer, enjoy it in front of the unlucky fan and then throw the empty cup in their face before rolling under the bottom rope and popping up to his feet. He heads over to the corner and takes a seat on the top turnbuckle as he waits for the match to start.
The arena falls into a tepid silence as the opening guitar riff to Royal Blood’s “Out of the Black” begins to trickle out of the PA system, starting quiet and building to a thunderous din as the words kick into action. The crowd are perplexed at first until the screen does the legwork in identifying who is coming to the ring by showing highlights from the career of David Sanchez’ various matches..
The song plays on as the audience erupts into a sea of distasteful chants and a rapture of hissing, gesturing and miscellaneous disapproving noises. David Sanchez appears center stage, his eyes unblinking as he soaks in the loathing. Dressed in his simple wrestling gear of purple cage-fighting shorts, taped wrists, Black and purple boots, capped with cut-off, black gloves he appears a much different man than he does behind the curtain. In contrast to his drug-addled antics of promos both past and present, as well as the everyday struggles and politics of being the mayor, this impressive specimen wears only one additional item to approach the ring, a T-shirt he had launched through his wives’ online fashion outlet. The slogan branded on this simple black garment reads “[FEAR] Fuck Empathy” in purple font.
David’s emotionless stare at the crowd turns into a grimace at hearing their hatred towards him, even as he rebuilds their city, he was still always known as the bad guy. He begins a slow pace to the ring. No pyrotechnics are launched, nor do the lights flicker. He believed simplicity was more intimidating than flashing strobes, smoke and fireworks. As he walks he removes the aforementioned T-shirt, an action which draws a slight stirring from the fans closest to the ramp who believe they may be given this item of clothing. Instead, upon acknowledging this optimism, Sanchez simply hangs the T-shirt over the optical lens of the cameraman who had been documenting his walk to the ring, causing a momentary fault in focus which is quickly dealt with as the low hissing turns into a tidal wave of boos by those disheartened by his inability to share.
I’ve got a gun for a mouth,
‘Got a bullet with your name on it.
As the music shifts back to a heavy guitar solo, David Sanchez slides under the bottom ropes and leaps back to his feet, staring down the ring announcer without so much as batting an eyelid at the audience. With this final blatant disregard for showmanship he turns back to the stage, awaiting his opponent whilst stretching out his limbs in a warm-up. He acts as though the arena is empty, as if this was simply a practice run. A slightly troubling smile appears on his previously void of emotion complexion as the music ceases and the crowd’s obvious resentment for his presence surrounds him like a warm blanket of hate.
" Killed By Death " hits the PA system as the arena begins to fill with smoke. Them vocals smash the speakers as the spot light is shown ZMAC whose stand out in the middle section of the area. He begins to walk down towards the ring then gets body surfed down to the crowd barrier. He hops the barrier and slides into the ring. The Honey Badger has arrived.
Zach Davis: Well, here is Team Pantheon. They were victorious at Hellimination, and now men like these get to just demand Title shots. Simply wonderful.
Freddy Whoa: However, tonight they're in a handicapped match. These guys are talented and all but can they handle this?
Zach Davis: All night long!
El Fuego comes down to a cacophony various of fire alarms doing somersalts and flippy moves showing off he'll also occasionally stop and show off his fire skills by shooting a stream of fire through the ait.
Freddy Whoa: Whoa!
Strobe lights start to flicker, fog fills the entrance. The opening riff to Disturbed's "The Vengeful One" begins to play. Through the fog, a woman appears first before Onyx appears in a pair of black trunks and boots, his hands taped MMA-style.
(Announcer - I'll edit this later):
Introducing from Calgary, Alberta, Canada... being escorted to the ring by Branwen. He is Ooooooooonyx!
Zach Davis: He never edited it, Freddy.
This Love by Pantera. For the first couple of seconds, the stage is blank, only a image of the name "ChAos" covered in barbed wire shows, then, the lights go up and Chaos is just standing there, just before the rock starts. When the rock kicks in, he does a Roman Reigns style roar, with the Extreme Championship around his waist, and a trash can FULL of weapons. He walks to the ring, throws the crash can inside, and climbs in via the steps, and prepares to fight.
"Side Of A Bullet" by Nickleback hits and Jaice Wild runs to the ring.
Dr. Feelgood hits the speakers and as the main riff blasts through the arena, Doc, and Master Ryushi emerge on the stage. Looking around, he raises his fists in the air, the crowd cheering wildly as he then leads the way to the ring. Climbing up the steps, he hops the turnbuckle and 'gets loose' awaiting his opponent.
Freddy Whoa: Doc seems... confused. He may still be concussed after last week.
As Doc gets in the ring he runs at Jayson Price and starts attacking him to start things off.
Zach Davis: There is the bell!
Jayson Price is taken back by the surprise attack but soon starts firing back with punches of his own. Given his own history he doesn't seem super hyped to be punching a dude with a concussion but oh well, he sends Doc reeling. Price throws Henry to the ropes before catching him as he comes back and hitting a Scoop Slam.
Freddy Whoa: Price backs up.. Jumping Knee Drop to Henry's face!
Price pins Henry.
No!, broken up by Jaice.
Zach Davis: Jaice Wilds saves it for his team!
Jaice picks Price up and hits a quick Neckbreaker before he rolls out of the ring. This allows Doc to get up and he tries to take a few wild swings - but Price isn't even to his feet.
Freddy Whoa: Doc Henry is really... REALLY out of it... Why did we even allow him to compete?
Lupus Onyx tags himself in. Meanwhile, Price has dived and tagged in Sanchez. Sanchez and Onyx meet in the middle of the ring and trade blows but Sanchez quickly gains the upper hand. He throws Onyx to the ropes and then hits a Tiltawhirl Backbreaker as he comes back. Sanchez goes for the pin.
No, Onyx kicks out. Sanchez picks him up and shoves him into his team's corner.
Zach Davis: Sanchez, getting cocky, just asking for someone to bring it.
Chaos tags himself in now. Chaos rushes Sanchez, who catches him in a Tiltawhirl Gutbuster! He picks Chaos up and shoves him into the corner, again asking for better competition.
Freddy Whoa: Geez. Cocky much?
This time Fuego Del Eterno Infierno Silencioso gets tagged in! Sanchez laughs him off... until Hellfire starts hitting him with punches! Sanchez is sent reeling and the crowd roars.
Crowd: HELLFIRE! HELLFIRE!
Hellfire sends Sanchez into the ropes and then boots him in the gut, doubling him over. He hits a Powerbomb!
Zach Davis: HE'S GOT HIM!
Fuego Del Eterno Infierno Silencioso goes for the pin!
NO!, broken up by Zombie McMorris.
Freddy Whoa: We almost had a hell of an upset - no pun intended!
Zombie McMorris lifts Hellfire up but Hellfire shoves him away. ZMAC hits the ropes and Hellfire hits a Hurricanrana!, sending the coked up zombie out of the ring.
Zach Davis: Hellfire shoots a fireball at David Sanchez!
David Sanchez ducks it and then kicks Hellfire - but no, Hellfire grabs his leg and executes a Dragonscrew Legwhip.
Freddy Whoa: We've never seen such fire from this man! No pun intended!
Hellfire lifts him up and grabs him by the head.
Zach Davis: HE'S GOING FOR THE SUPERNOVA!
As Hellfire goes for his Running Bulldog through the ropes, Sanchez grabs him and throws him out between them!
Freddy Whoa: Sanchez reverses it!, and sends Hellfire out of the ring!
Chaos and Lupus Onyx both get into the ring to be the legal men, Sanchez hits them both with Dropkicks before grabbing them and DDTing them both. He tags in Zombie McMorris.
Zach Davis: ZMAC enters the ring as Onyx and Chaos stumble up..
He pulls Chaos in and executes a Gutwrench Powerbomb.
Freddy Whoa: AXE WOUND!
He measures up Onyx who is stumbling to his feet...
Zach Davis: DOVE KILLAH!
McMorris gets to his feet as the two roll out of the ring. He shakes his head, mumbling "too easy" as he tags Price back into the ring.
Freddy Whoa: Come on...
As Onyx and Chaos roll out, Jaice Wilds enters the ring. Price runs at him but Wilds counters with a Pele Kick!
Zach Davis: That's what you get, Pantheon!
Wilds goes to send Price into the ropes but Price reverses it, sending Jaice in instead. Jaice Springboards and executes a Back Elbow!
Freddy Whoa: The Xtreme Aerialist is on top at the moment!
Wilds stomps his foot a few times....
Zach Davis: He's getting it ready.. XTREME DREAM!
NO!, Price catches the Superkick and spins Jaice around-
Freddy Whoa: JAICE HITS IT!
Jaice has the counter countered, so to speak, and fires off a quick Xtreme Dream!
Zach Davis: YOU'VE GOT IT, JAICE!
He climbs to the top.
Freddy Whoa: AERIAL ACE!
NO!, Price rolls out of the way of Jaice's finisher! Price quickly rushes him as he gets up and hits a Kneegasm!
Zach Davis: Damnit!
Jaice rolls away and tags Chaos back into the match. Chaos runs at Price but Price is able to catch him and drop him instantly.
Freddy Whoa: THE DOWNFALL.
Price pins Chaos.
Zach Davis: Aanndd Pantheon wins this handicapped match.
Price is quickly joined by McMorris and Sanchez as Chaos rolls out of the ring.
Freddy Whoa: Good effort by some of the participants in this match, notably Hellfire and Jaice Wilds - but it wasn't quite enough to take down Pantheon!
As Pantheon celebrates, Jayson Price mouths "ninety nine" towards the camera a few times, though we can't make out exactly what he's saying.
Zach Davis: What's Jayson Price on about? Ninety nine what?
Freddy Whoa: Do we want to know?
We go to commercial.
Joe Smarts vs Damian Kaine
The crowd cheers when 'Vertigo' by U2 comes on the speakers. Joe comes rushing out and sprints down the ramp.
Kyle Steel: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Bisbane Australia: Joe Smarts!
Joe slides into the ring. The crowd goes wild! He gets up and jumps on the 2nd Rope. He soaks in the cheers with his arms extended out. The crowd once again cheers. He flips back onto the canvas. He is ready.
Five Finger Death Punch’s version of “Bad Company” plays, but Damian Kaine is not seen until about thirty seconds in. He comes out stiff, and stumbly, as if he had been drinking.
Kyle Steel: And his opponent… Damian Kaine!
Kaine stumbles up the steps and slowly gets in the ring, falling back into the corner.
The bell rings and Kaine remains in his corner. Smarts is the first to advance, running at Kaine and splashing him into the turnbuckle.
Kaine melts to the canvas as Smarts goes up to the top!
SWANTON BOMB FROM SMARTS!
Kaine holds his gut in pain. Smarts is in the corner, setting up for a superkick!
Zach Davis: Smarts stalking Kaine. Kaine turning around!
Whoa: NO! Smarts’s leg caught by Kaine, and what a wonderful whip by the lockerroom disappointment.
Kaine is kicking Smarts repeatedly. The referee attempts to tell Kaine to back off.
Kaine finally lets Smarts up, only to receive a sharp kick to the midsection.
With Kaine bent over, Smarts performs a Canadian Destroyer-esque roll up for the pin on Kaine.
Kyle Steel: Here is your winner! JOE SMARTS!
The crowd pops.
Zach Davis: Well, Damian Kaine's string of bad luck continues.
Freddy Whoa: He's won his feud with Adrian Archer - he's still here, after all! - but can he ever get out of Archer's shadow and make the most of his time here in WCF? Time will tell!
Johnny Evil/Johnny Blaze/CJ Phoenix vs Drax Durant/Kidd Krazy/Jason O'Neal
Ghost - Square Hammer hits and here comes Johnny Evil!
Fire by Scooter begins playing as Johnny Blaze steps through the curtains and begins making his way towards the ring. He shakes hands with the few who offer but keeps his focus on the moment at hand. He enters the ring and moves to his corner.
"Re-education Through Labor" begins to play as the cameras pan through the crowd. Then, 13 seconds into the song, Phoenix runs out onto the stage as the beat drops. He stretches his arms out as he looks at the crowd before running down the ramp with his arms stretched out and flames following him on each side until he reaches the end of the ramp. He slides into the ring and runs up one of the turnbuckles. He then does a cross sign with his hands before pointing upward and hopping off the turnbuckle into the ring.
Zach Davis: These men as individuals have not gotten along recently - and CJ Phoenix is surely NOT happy about losing his Alpha Championship.
Cult of Personality, by Living Color plays, After 30 seconds Drax Durant bursts out the curtain. Holding up his arms high in the air and invites applause. But all he gets are boos and jeers, and he loves every moment of it. He hops into the ring and stands dead center and crosses his arms to symbolize X. The Symbol of the Straight Edge Movement.
Freddy Whoa: Drax Durant recently returned!, and succesfully, too. Can tonight continue that?
Psycho by puddle of mudd, comes running out head banging and flashing his kk hand signal ( puts thumbs pointer and middle fingers togather to look like ks.).
Zach Davis: Here is Kidd Krazzy! This guy impresses us every time he enters the ring but so far he hasn't been able to find the success he seems to deserve. Will tonight be his night?
#1 by Nelly hits and Jason O'Neal walks arrogantly walks to the ring.
Freddy Whoa: And here is the new Alpha Champion! Some say he was in the right place at the right time, but Jason O'Neal worked for that belt.
Zach Davis: Unfortunately, due to the nature of it, CJ Phoenix will never get the chance at a rematch - but he can regain some pride here tonight!
And indeed, CJ Phoenix and Jason O'Neal meet in the middle of the ring and begin trading lefts and rights! CJ Phoenix gets the upper hand - possibly because he has the most to prove - and pushes O'Neal into the ropes. As O'Neal comes back Phoenix executes a Powerslam.
Kickout from O'Neal.
Freddy Whoa: As much as CJ Phoenix must want revenge - O'Neal doesn't want to get pinned in his first match after his Title win!
Phoenix lifts him back up and throws him to the ropes. As O'Neal comes back CJ Phoenix quickly executes an Exploder Suplex! The former Champion runs to the ropes.
Zach Davis: Lionsault!
Into another pin!
No!, O'Neal kicks out again. Phoenix lifts O'Neal up but he hits a flurry of kicks before hitting a Backbreaker. O'Neal then stumbles away and tags in Drax Durant.
Zach Davis: Durant comes in and starts stomping away at Phoenix, but CJ is already working his way up.
Phoenix is able to block a punch from Durant and takes him down with an STO! Phoenix follows up by locking Durant into a Camel Clutch.
Freddy Whoa: NO!, broken up by O'Neal.
The new Champion hits a Running Dropkick to Phoenix's head before rolling out of the ring. Durant lifts Phoenix up and grapples him from behind.
Zach Davis: German Suplex!
Durant keeps him hooked and lifts him back up for another.
Freddy Whoa: German Suplex!
He keeps him hooked and goes up once more.
Zach Davis: NO! Phoenix lands on his feet!
Durant turns and gets a Spinning Wheel Kick for his trouble. Phoenix starts crawling towards the ropes to make a tag.
Freddy Whoa: Even though Phoenix countered the third, two German Suplexes in a row... That'll hurt.
Durant gets to his feet and grabs Phoenix before he can get there. Durant hits Phoenix with a few forearms to the back of the head before throwing him to the ropes.
Zach Davis: Phoenix comes back - SPEAR!
The crowd pops as Phoenix hits it! He then tags in Johnny Blaze!
Freddy Whoa: He's no Danny Blaze, he's an above average homeboy. HERE COMES JOHNNY BLAZE!
Blaze enters the match and immediately gouges Durant in the eyes much to the crowd's chagrin. Blaze stomps away at Durant before Durant rolls away and tags in O'Neal.
Zach Davis: Alpha Champ, back in the match.
Johnny Blaze Clotheslines O'Neal down before lifting him up and smashing him with a forearm. He then throws him to the ropes and hits a Dropkick. O'Neal stumbles up and Blaze kicks him in the gut and grabs him for a DDT.
Freddy Whoa: O'Neal jabs his way out of it - Backbreaker to Johnny Blaze!
O'Neal turns and tags in Kidd Krazzy. Kidd Krazzy Springboards into the match and hits a Headbutt onto Blaze. Blaze rolls away and stumbles to his feet but Kidd Krazzy is already moving, he hits a Dropkick to Blaze. Blaze drops down at a neutral corner and Krazzy runs at him... He hits a Bronco Buster!
Zach Davis: Kidd Krazzy is full of energy! And now that he's in this match he's on fire!
Blaze rolls away and tags in Johnny Evil. Evil enters the match and runs at Krazzy but Krazzy executes a Hurricanrana, sending him headfirst into a neutral corner. Evil stumbles out and Krazzy hits an Arm Drag into a Wristlock.
Freddy Whoa: Despite what his opponents may say, Kidd Krazzy DOES know the difference between a wristlock and a wristwatch!
Evil gets back to his feet and hits several knife edge chops to get out of it. Krazzy runs at him but Evil lifts him up onto his shoulders.
Zach Davis: Death Valley Driver!
No!, Krazzy slips out of Evil's grasp and lands behind him. Krazzy headbutts him from behind before quickly jumping to the top.
Freddy Whoa: Moonsault!
Krazzy runs at Blaze and Phoenix and elbows them both off the apron before getting ready.
Zach Davis: HYDUKAN!!!!
Krazzy hits it!
Freddy Whoa: KIDD KRAZZY IS ABOUT TO GET HIS WIN!
Jason O'Neal tags himself in and runs at Evil as he stumbles up, hitting the Lagniappe! O'Neal pins him.
Zach Davis: HEY! Kidd Krazzy had that win!
Jason O'Neal gets to his feet and raises his Alpha Title in the air, but Kidd Krazzy gets in his face about stealing the win.
Freddy Whoa: That could've been Kidd Krazzy's moment to finally turn his luck around and The Real Deal took it from him!
O'Neal doesn't feel like fighting with him and simply rolls out of the ring and heads to the back. Kidd Krazzy yells at him as we go to commercial.
Joey Flash/Jared Holmes/Johnny Rabid/Wade Moor vs Salem Shepard/Dion Necurat//Lilith/Oblivion
The show comes back from commercials to find Lilith, Oblivion, and Dion Necurat already in the ring. The lights in the arena go out as red lights and fog cover the ramp as “Grazen Image” by Zack Hemsey plays for several moments as he makes the crowd wait. The crowd goes wild as the camera focuses on the curtain. After a moment, Salem Shepard steps onto the stage, a frown replacing his usual smile.
Zach Davis: Salem Shepard has openly expressed his dislike of this booking. He’s in a match with a woman openly in love with one of his opponents, a member of a rival team, and –
Freddy Whoa: And BrOblivSEAon, the Monster Guardian of the Nae Nae.
Zach Davis: …What the hell, Freddy?
Freddy Whoa: Erm, I mean – yeah, Oblivion is a champion! I’m naïve and a young African American man!
Zach Davis: …
Salem walks down the ramp, slapping the occasional hand. His eyes remain on his own team, shaking his head in frustration. He slides into the ring and walks straight to the corner, slumping in it as he waits for the match to begin. “Aquaberry Dolphin (Mysterious Pantheon Remix)” by RiFF-RaFF hits the P.A. to a wave of booing. The curtain parts as Jared Holmes and Johnny Rabid step onto the stage, followed by Wade Moor carrying Joey Flash on his shoulders.
Freddy Whoa: Mah boi with dem fresh ass sweat pants. Bout to make #Flashjobbers.
Zach Davis: … Have you gotten noticeable larger? And kind of Mexican?
Freddy Whoa: I, uh… got a new haircut.
Wade lowers Flash onto the apron as Jared and Rabid leap up on opposite sides. Jared climbs into the ring as Wade climbs the apron to his corner.
DING DING DING
As the bell rings, Jared and Salem Shepard stare at each other from their corners, a look of contempt lining the faces of both men as they rise and begin to approach each other.
Freddy Whoa: What the heck?! Lilith just tagged herself in!
Lilith ducks under the ropes, shoving Salem out of the way as she approaches the Six God, a dopey smile across her face as she bats her eyelashes at him and proceeds to lay down.
Zach Davis: Are you kidding me?
Lilith grins expectantly as a smirk spreads across Jared’s face. He places a foot on her chest.
Salem runs over and shoves him off, throwing overhand right punches as he backs him into the corner. Lilith pursues, slapping at the back of Salem’s head to attempt to disrupt the assault before a large hand grabs her by the neck and throws her aside.
Zach Davis: And Oblivion is having none of this!
Gravedigger: Just like no one here wants anything to do with him.
Zach Davis: … I KNEW IT! B-But how?!
Gravedigger: I’ve been wearing a Freddy Woah mask all show. The real Woah is locked in the janitor’s closet in the back. Had to rep my boys Pantheon, doe.
Dragging Lilith by her hair back to the corner, Oblivion holds her in a headlock and yells as Dion to tag himself in. Dion makes the tag as Pantheon pulls Salem off Holmes, and he rushes quickly to begin trading punches with his opponents. Jared makes the tag to Flash.
Moor and Holmes slip out of the ring as Flash nails Dion in the face with a stiff right. The Crimson Gladiator stumbles back, meeting a second fist. He lashes in retaliation, but Flash catches it and flips him with an arm drag before locking in a wrist lock. Oblivion reaches out for a tag.
Zach Davis: The length of Obi’s massive frame really helping his team. Dion is inches away!
But no! Before Dion can get the tag, Lilith shoves Obilivion away and reaches out herself! The God of Insanity has finally had enough – he grips Lilith by the hair and pulls her off the apron, dropping down to begin trading blows. As the two teammates battle through the crowd, Dion tags in Shepard. Flash releases the hold, standing up to face him opponent as Salem’s eyes shift between his four opponents… and sole ally.
Gravedigger: Get shiprekt, #fuccboi.
Salem furrows his brow and puts up his fists, running at Flash. His first swing misses, the Number One Contender stepping out of the way with a scoff. The second hit misses, Flash slapping Salem on the back of the head as he dodges. The third strike connects, smashing Flash across the nose and cheek to send him stumbling back.
Zach Davis: Nasty blow by Salem!
Flash reels, his hand coming to his face. He snarls before lashing out immediately with the Sudden Flash! Salem ducks, running past Flash to nail Holmes on the apron with a forearm! Before Wade can react, Salem nails him with a forearm. Before he can turn to Rabid, a clubbing blow to the back of the head from Flash knocks Salem forward into the turnbuckle. Flash tags Rabid in, pulling Salem back before bouncing his head off the top turnbuckle and allowing him to stumble back into the waiting arms of Rabid. With arms wrapped around Salem’s waist, Rabid throws him back for a vicious German suplex. He stays locked, following through with a second one. After a third one, Rabid bridges for the pin.
Ref: One! Two!
Salem kicks out! Rabid rips him to his feet, whipping him across the ring into his own corner. He stalks across slowly, taking a moment to eye Dion Necurat.
Zach Davis: And here’s Johnny Rabid – the Ripper – daring Dion to tag in.
With fear in his eyes but resolve on his face, Dion slaps Salem on the arm. He ducks under the ropes and faces Rabid. Rabid slaps himself on the chest, egging Dion on. Dion throws a quick barrages of punches – they seem to do little. The final strike is caught by Rabid, his hand clenching down on Dion’s fist before twisting his arm behind his back. He lifts the Crimson Gladiator into the air, but Dion shifts his weight forward and rolls through for a cradle pin!
Rabid kicks out, pushing to his feet. Dion runs at him and lays a hard clothesline to send Rabid over the ropes to the outside. As Holmes and Moor rush to collect him, Salem mounts the turnbuckle and throws himself off with a crossbody! The five superstars lay on the mat as the referee begins the count.
Ref: One! Two! Three!
Flash drops from the apron and walks over to the pile, hoisting Rabid up and rolling him into the ring.
Ref: Four! Five!
Suddenly out of the crowd leaps Crazy J and Jason Cash! They hoist Dion up and toss him in before turning to Flash. The ref runs over and begins yelling at them. As ZT, Flash, and the referee argue, Wade’s hand slithers under the ring. Withdrawing a chair, he slowly rises and lashes out with a chair shot across the head of Crazy J! The ref, Cash, and Flash freeze in disbelief before Wade swings the chair at Cash, taking him down!
Gravedigger: YEAH! THAT’S WHAT YOU GET! INVADERS!
Zach Davis: And being that Zero Tolerance aren’t in this match, there’s no disqualification for Wade Moor – even though he used a chair!
Jared leaps onto the apron, reaching down to tag himself in on Rabid’s boot! He crouches in the corner, waiting for Dion to pull himself up before getting a running start and nailing the Dolphin Driver! He immediately hooks the leg as he yells at the ref to count the pin.
Ref: 1! 2! 3!
“Aquaberry Dolphin (Mysterious Pantheon Remix)” by RiFF-RaFF hits as Jared rolls off, the members of ZT sliding in as Jared slides out. They circle the fallen Dion, scowling angrily as Holmes, Rabid, Moor, and Flash stalk backwards up the ramp.
Zach Davis: Pantheon’s reign of terror continues, as the team of their opponents falls apart and Wade Moor uses a chair to debilitate the intervening members of ZT. This was an absolutely thuggish moment from four men who already had a two-to-one advantage against their opponents and had to resort to trickery to win.
Wade makes a belt motion around his waist as he points to Crazy J. Flash and Holmes make rude gestures and cackle as Zero Tolerance hurl insults, daring the men to return to the ring.
Gravedigger: I’m putting this Freddy Woah mask back on. No one will believe you, Davis.
Television Title on the Line
Teddy Blaze/Captain Pantheon/Steven Singh vs Kevin Bishop/Lester Parish/FPV
The gruff voice from the 80s sample announces "Cold getting dumb..." and golden pyros form 5 ft high fountains across the stage. The menacing beat of the Supervillain Theme by Mad Villain fills the arena and The Superstar Steven Singh steps out to an enthusiastic, if mixed, reaction. Stopping on the stage he smiles wry and smug, right arm raised in the air, back of his hand to the crowd, left hand behind his back. As the gold fountains shrink back into the stage, The Superstar lowers his hand, twirling his wrist and half-bowing his head with faux gratitude to the fans. As he heads to the ring, his CaramellDansen hits and Captain Pantheon comes out running. He passes his co-Tag Champ on the way into the ring where strikes his traditional superhero pose.
The Crowd explodes as a pounding drum beat of When the Levee breaks echoes throughout the arena, signalling the arrival of Teddy Blaze! The lights drop, enveloping the arena in darkness as they turn towards the entrance ramp. With a crescendo and a burst of flame, Blaze appears before them, holding his hands out over his head and bathing in the applause. He takes a deep bow and walks towards the ring, waving to the fans along the way.
The arena dims until only ambient light glows from the big screen. Parish—his back turned to the viewer, wearing a gray overcoat with its collar cocked—plays Chopin’s “Nocturne in F Minor” on an old piano. The screen then cuts to his blue eyes behind a dark, latex mask. He speaks in a scratchy voice, "One more gap, just one more step." Chopin’s tune fades into Unholy Confessions by Avenged Sevenfold as Parish awaits Kevin Bishop on the ramp. The lights in the arena go black and a hush falls upon the fans when the tron lights up pure white and white strobes beam down on a group of people in black hoods and Plague doctor masks, as the lights beam down on them, the move away to reveal The Plague Kevin Bishop holding out his arms taking in the roar of the crowd. He wears his black studded leather vest and his hair drips wet as he shakes his head to the music. Kevin applies his wrist tape as he joins Parish on the ramp.
The lights dim to a blood red, as glitchy electronic noises fill the arena. Many suspect that "Ghosts n' Stuff" is about to play...until instead they get a snippet of multiple songs. First "You Know My Name," then "Mountain Song," "Ghosts 'n Stuff, "The Scott Pilgrim Anthem," and finally "Professional Griefers." This snippets play seemingly at random until all sound stops, and the lights go off completely, until three words pop up on the titantron, in big white letters.
"FRANK PATRICK VENABLE"
The crowd explodes in applause as "True North" hits the P.A and Frank Patrick Venable finally makes his entrance, somewhat skeptically joining the other two Brotherhood members. All three men make their way down to the ring. All six men are ready to go and the two teams briefly discuss amongst themselves who’ll be starting as the referee calls for the bell.
Freddy Whoa: Looks like Singh and FPV are set to start this one off.
On the apron, Kevin Bishop stomps his foot on the steel stairs to hype the crowd for the start of this match and get them squarely behind FPV. Frank looks out to the crowd who chants “EFF! PEE! VEE!” in accordance with The Plague’s stomping. FPV looks over at Bishop with a smirk and Bishop nods at him. Singh and Venable circle each other and eventually snap into a collar and elbow tie up. FPV sends Singh down quickly with an armdrag.
Freddy Whoa: Singh back up and then sent back down with another arm drag towards his corner. And a quick tag from Singh! It looks like he’s already had enough of dealing with FPV.
Zach Davis: He straight up slapped an unsuspecting Captain WCF in the chest for that tag.
Freddy Whoa: Captain PANTHEON, Zach. Captain Pantheon.
Zach Davis: I refuse.
Captain steps in between the ropes and rushes towards FPV, immediately going for his big boot but it’s ducked by FPV who then peppers Captain with quick jabs. He lifts the Captain up and plants him with a scoop slam. A quick elbow drop from FPV and a cover…
Zach Davis: 1….2….
Freddy Whoa: Nope! Not nearly enough to put away one half of the Tag Team Champions!
FPV whips Cap into his corner and follows in with a big jumping splash and a tag to Kevin Bishop. Cap stumbles out of the corner and into an exploder suplex from The Plague. He hoists Captain back up and drops him with a snap brainbuster. Taginto Lester Parish and Bishop sends Cap off the ropes. Bishop lowers his head and back body drops Captain high into the air.
Freddy Whoa: Back body drop by Bishop right into the waiting arms of Parish who catches Captain mid air and DRILLS him to the mat with a powerbomb! A pin! 1….2...
Zach Davis: Three!
Freddy Whoa: No! Singh breaks it up just before three! Bishop steps into the ring to clear out Singh but Singh scurries quickly back to his corner.
Parish is down on the mat just pounding Captain Pantheon with right hands. He then pulls Captain back up then nails him with a series of mongolian chops. Captain leans back on the ropes, Parish grabs him and sends him across the ring and goes for a spinning lariat.
Freddy Whoa: Ducked by Captain!
Cap bounces off the opposite ropes and hits him with a flying forearm, stumbling the big man. Captain bounces off the ropes again and comes back with another flying forearm, only stumbling Parish. A third one and Parish is still on his feet but now leaning with his back on the ropes. Cap rushes him again but Parish back body drops him over the top rope.
Zach Davis: No! Cap landed on the apron. Cap with a shot to the back of Lester’s head! Lester turns around and gets a shoulder to the gut. Captain Pantheon with a sunset flip!
Freddy Whoa: He can’t get Parish over! Parish is holding onto the ropes as Captain struggles to pull him down.
Parish suddenly jumps straight up and attempts to sit down on the chest of Captain Pantheon. Pantheon slides out of the way just in time however. Captain with a kick to the lower back of Parish. And another. Captain bounces off the ropes and gets drives a diving elbow to the spine of Parish. With Parish still sitting up, Captain WCF applies a rear chinlock.
Zach Davis: It looks like the big man is too strong; he’s getting back to his feet.
Freddy Whoa: Captain Pantheon slips it into a sleeper hold and jumps on Parish’s back!
Parish stumbles around the ring a bit, dropping to one knee for a moment. He then runs Captain back first into a neutral turnbuckle.
Zach Davis: Cap is still hanging on!
Parish is dragging Captain slowly to the Brotherhood corner. He’s almost there...no! A drop out sleeper slam from Captain! And both men are down!
Freddy Whoa: Captain is first to stir and stretches to his corner, tagging in Teddy Blaze!
Teddy Blaze springboards over the top rope but as soon as he does, Singh slaps him on the back and gets into the ring. He covers Parish.
Freddy Whoa: 1….2…
Zach Davis: Kickout from Parish!
Freddy Whoa: As per the usual, Singh trying to steal one.
Singh is quick begins stomping Parish. Singh backs off, waits for Parish to get back up then blindsides him with a chop block. He pulls the larger man back to his feet, sends him off the ropes and then back down with a drop toe hold into an STF.
Zach Davis: FPV is quickly in to break up the submission attempting.
Freddy Whoa: Yeah but was he saving his partner or his title?
Singh gets up and into the face of FPV who cocks back a fist but Singh pulls the referee in between them. The referee is pushing a fired up FPV back into his corner and as he does, Singh has Parish’s leg grapevined around the bottom rope. Singh is hanging off the apron, using the ropes to torque the big man’s knee.
Freddy Whoa: With the referee distracted, this is way more than a 5 count!
With the referee still arguing with FPV who is slow to get out of the ring, Bishop runs along the apron and NAILS Singh with a basement dropkick, breaking the hold on Parish. Singh is on the floor outside and Parish is struggling to his corner…
Freddy Whoa: Tag! FPV is the legal man and he comes sprinting down the apron with a Frankysteiner to Singh on the outside!
Singh is sent sprawling into the guard rail as the referee begins his count. 1…..2….FPV sets Singh up and slighshots him face first into the ringpost. FPV is up and yelling to the crowd who are ecstatic.
Freddy Whoa: With the referee at a 4 count, FPV hops up onto the guardrail. He’s looking for the Goomba Stomp!
Before he can make the jump Singh pushes the guardrail and FPV crotches himself on it. SSS then grabs him by the head and snaps him down with a dragon screw neckbreaker.
Zach Davis: Singh is back in the ring and crawls to his corner for a tag but as he reaches towards Teddy Blaze, Blaze hops off the apron and folds his arms! He shakes his head “No” to Thievin Steven!
Freddy Whoa: FPV JUST makes it back into the ring as Singh tags in his co-champion Captain Pantheon.
FPV struggles to his feet and Captain Pantheon drops him with his big boot.
Freddy Whoa: No headshot, but that’s certainly a BOOM!
Zach Davis: A cover….1…..2….
Freddy Whoa: A kickout from the TV Champ!
Cap pulls FPV back up, then hits him with an inverted atomic drop quickly followed up by a discus punch. Captain Pantheon strikes a hero’s pose as his partner, Steven Singh claps for him from the corner. Taking just a moment too long though, Captain is tossed onto the back of his neck by FPV with a ¾ nelson suplex.
Zach Davis: Both men are down and slowly struggling to their corners....Captain is nearly to his corner but his partners appear to be arguing with each other.
Neither Singh nor Blaze have their hands outstretched and instead it appears Singh is laying into Blaze over refusing to tag in earlier.
Freddy Whoa: FPV makes the tag to The People’s Champion, Kevin Bishop!
As Blaze is distracted by the yapping Singh, Captain Pantheon slaps him in for the tag. Bishop is already in the ring and bumrushes their corner. He clotheslines Captain out of the ring and then knocks Singh to the floor with a big right hand before being stopped in his tracks by a springboard knee from Teddy Blaze off the apron.
Zach Davis: Reluctant as he may be, The Internet Champion is in this match!
Bishop is back up but sent back down quickly with a flurry of kicks from Teddy Blaze. Blaze whips BIshop into the corner and is immediately follows in with a tornado ddt!
Freddy Whoa: Blaze is on fire!
Zach Davis: A little on the nose, Freddy.
With Bishop down and mostly out, Teddy is quick to lionsault off the middle rope and down onto Bishop for a cover of 1...2….
Freddy Whoa: Broken up by Lester Parish!
Before the referee can remove him from the ring, Parish has two hands around Blaze’s neck.
Freddy Whoa: He’s got Blaze up in the air by the neck!
As the ref threatens a DQ, Parish walks towards the ropes with Blaze’s legs dangling. Blaze however uses the top rope to springboard off and reverse the hold into a springboard blockbuster! Blaze begins booting Parish to get him out of the ring but as he does, Bishop has recovered and catches Blaze from behind.
Zach Davis: The Iron Maiden! He’s got Blaze in the dragon sleeper off that slingshot reverse suplex!
Freddy Whoa: In comes Singh to break it up! But he’s cut off by FPV with a FUS ROH DUH running clothesline!
Zach Davis: Parish has grabbed Captain Pantheon and the two of them are going at it on the outside!
Parish irish whips Cap into the steel stairs. As Cap leans against them trying to recover, Parish comes barrelling in with a knee but Cap falls out of the way and Lester goes flying over the ring steps! FPV is measuring Singh and goes for..
Freddy Whoa: Boom! Headshot!
Zach Davis: No! Singh ducked it! Kick to the stomach by Singh and he picks FPV up into a suplex then lets him fall forward into a knee lift by Singh!
Freddy Whoa: He’s calling that “Off a Cliff!”
Zach Davis: Sounds like somebody’s a little salty!
Freddy Whoa: Blaze is still stuck in that Iron Maiden but the ref has been preoccupied with getting FPV and Singh under control!
FPV rolls onto the apron as the referee barks at Singh to get out of the ring. Bishop releases the nearly lifeless Teddy Blaze out of the dragon sleeper and grabs Singh from behind, planting him with a release german suplex. Singh rolls back to his corner but Blaze has somehow recovered and catches Bishop with a hangman’s neckbreaker.
Freddy Whoa: Call Vin Diesel, this action is Fast and Furious!
Zach Davis: I wish I could call a temp agency; you’re a terrible commentator.
Freddy Whoa: Whoa!
Zach Davis: Either way, it looks like all six men are in dire straights here. We’ve got Kevin Bishop and Teddy Blaze down in the ring while the two men in either corner are struggling to stay on their feet!
Kevin Bishop crawls towards FPV.
Freddy Whoa: These two fight a hellacious match last week. You've got to think everyone on Teddy Blaze's team wants Bishop to make the tag. Get FPV legal in there, get the Television Title!
On the apron, Captain Pantheon waits anxiously for Bishop to make the tag and for Blaze to make a hot tag too.
Zach Davis: Bishop crawls towards FPV.... Come on, Teddy!
Blaze gets one last second wind and instead of using it to make a tag, he runs at Bishop and hits a Blazing Knee to the back of his head!
Freddy Whoa: What!
Blaze punches FPV and knocks him off the apron before jumping to the top.
Zach Davis: HABANERO HIGH DIVE!
Teddy Blaze lands on Kevin Bishop and he quickly pins the People's Champion.
Freddy Whoa: WHOA!
Zach Davis: TEDDY BLAZE WINS IT! The Internet and Tag Team Champs take the victory!
Blaze gets up and Bishop quickly rolls out of the ring. Before Blaze can even be handed his Internet Title, Captain Pantheon is in his face.
Freddy Whoa: Uh oh. Some dispute amongst the team here...
Steven Singh has his Tag Team Title and is backpeddling up the ramp, not particularly caring about the drama between his partners. Captain Pantheon is asking why Teddy Blaze didn't go for the Television Title.
Zach Davis: Teddy could've let Bishop make the tag, and he chose not to. Captain Pantheon isn't happy about losing the opportunity to bring the belt to.. well, Pantheon.
Captain Pantheon shoves Teddy Blaze.
Freddy Whoa: What, because he's Captain Pantheon, he thinks he's a tough guy now?
Teddy Blaze shakes his head and runs at Captain Pantheon.
Zach Davis: BLAZING KNEE!
Freddy Whoa: BLAZING KNEE TO THE CAPTAIN THAT TURNED HIS BACK ON WCF!
Captain Pantheon rolls out of the ring. Teddy Blaze grabs a mic.
Zach Davis: What does he have to say!? Teddy Blaze just pinned the Internet Champion and knee'd one half of the Tag Team Champions, Captain Pantheon himself!
He looks over the audience with a cocked eyebrow, and seems to relish in the suspense before finally raising the microphone to begin speaking.
Teddy Blaze: I think that I owe you an apology.
The crowd begins murmuring to themselves in confusion.
I think that I owe each and every one of you around the world an apology for what I have done.
Ladies and Gentlemen, you see before you a man nearing the end.
The end of his patience, the end of his drive, the end of everything.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the way that the WCF locker room has been acting has been an absolute disgrace!
And the more I think about it, the more I have to include myself in that description.
Between the circle jerks going on across twitter to the absolutely disgraceful behavior of so called "Team WCF", we are a dumpster fire with no signs of dwindling.
The crowd begins to look at Blaze in confusion.
Teddy Blaze: team WCF told me that they didn't want me, they told me they weren't interested, so I lashed out at them like they did at me. Then those people that they did choose went on to bow down to Pantheon, to completely let all of you down.
Then, Seth Lerch robbed, I repeat robbed! Me of the tag team Championship on a technicality. But I let it go. Any other man would have marched right into his office, but I let it go.
I have been pushed further and further away from relevance with each passing day and quite frankly, it is a goddamned insult!
An insult, yes, not to me, but to you.
These men, these cowards are so obsessed with trying to win titles that they've forgotten just why it is they're fighting in the first place!
I am sick of hearing about Championships! Every single week it's this belt or that belt. I have had it with the gold fever in that locker room!
I have had it with being marginalized, with letting your voices be silenced underneath the boot of political bullshit!
The audience now seems to be getting behind Blaze as he speaks.
I want so badly to claim the accomplishments I have, but the fact is that I cannot stand before you as anything more than living proof of what can happen when you believe in somebody.
And it is high time I start paying you back for everything you have given me.
We are in our darkest hour, at the twilight of our years, and the last thing you need is another belt obsessed, paperback con artist representing you!
You deserve a hero, the WCF galaxy deserves! Somebody who is not afraid of anybody! Someone who will stand before the WCF Galaxy and fight the battles that nobody wants to fight!
Someone who will take on impossible odds! Who will walk into hell with a smile on his face! And quite frankly, that person has been taken from you.
I do not know if I can still be the hero that WCF needs, if I'm still worthy of carrying the banner, but listen to me right now as I say these words!
I. Am. Done. Running.
I am done! Being afraid!
You should not have to wonder for your future, should not be afraid that WCF is going to rip itself apart!
I don't know if I can still be your hero, but I can damned sure fight for you.
And you know what? I am going to do what everyone else is afraid to do.
I am going to face the man that has the entire roster shaking.
Team WCF wants to kick me off? I'm going to do what they couldn't.
I don't care if it costs me everything, if it breaks my back or if it destroys what is left of my soul, I don't give a damn!
No titles, no title shots, not a thing on the line expect pride.
The WCF Galaxy deserves a champion that will fight anybody for you, and as far as I'm concerned, it's about time for me to start acting like a champion.
If you will stand behind me one last time, if the WCF Galaxy will be at my back for this battle, then there is not a thing in the world that will keep us from victory!
Joey, the ball is in your court. You want to take over WCF? I'm the first man on the wall! You take this match, you better be ready to kill me, because I am a man with nothing left to lose!
I beg you, take this match Joey, put your money where your mouth is! Either I'm going to shock the world, or you're going to finish what you started.
Either way, I'm taking matters into my own hands!
But be warned Joey, for the first time in a long time.
I won't be fighting alone.
Teddy Blaze throws down the microphone with a thud as his music plays and he walks out of the ring.
Eric Price Segment
“You Know My Name” by Chris Cornell starts playing over the speaker system of the Marriott Center as Eric Price steps out from the curtain walking toward the ring, the crowd cheering for him. Not dressed to compete as he is wearing a black sport coat, black pants, and a navy blue collared shirt, no tie, one button unbuttoned.
Zach Davis: I certainly did not expect Eric Price out here tonight. This man made a surprise return to WCF two weeks ago on this program and Helloween certainly did not go as expected for him.
Freddy Whoa: Not at all, wonder why he’s out here tonight? Probably to whine and cry about it.
Eric slaps hands with the fans at ringside as he makes his way into the ring and asks for a microphone. He appears to have a smile on his face as his music fades.
Eric Price: Helloween … certainly last week did not go as I expected but I have to give it up to Pantheon!
The crowd boos for the mention of Pantheon
Eric Price: I know, I know but facts are what they are, they did a hell of a job so I have to give it up to them! I also give a lot of credit to my teammates in Zero Tolerance, they did a hell of a job last week and gave it their all! I think they deserve an applause for all their effort!
Eric applauds for them as the crowd cheers this
Eric Price: Now, why am I out here tonight? Last week was my first time in a WCF ring in many years and honestly I have to say that … when I signed my WCF contract to return, I signed it for that one night only and it was a lot of fun for me! It felt good to get back into the squared circle and mix it up. It is also good to see a lot of new faces, a lot of new competition. Originally, I had planned to come out here tonight to say a quick farewell speech to everyone in WCF after my one night was up.
The crowd boos at this…
Eric Price: But then … then I had a quick conversation with Seth Lerch earlier this evening and it seems that “One Night Only” is going to be extended and I will be coming back as a full-time competitor on an active roster of WCF Wrestlers!
Freddy Whoa: WHOA!
The crowd cheers at this.
Eric Price: Next week, I will be in my first match on Slam in over three years in singles competition. Folks, Eric Price is back!
Before the crowd can react, Master of Puppets hits.
Zach Davis: OH GOOD HERE COMES SETH said nobody ever.
Seth Lerch steps out from the back.
Seth Lerch: Zach, I heard what you said. And maybe Eric Price WILL be happy to see me.
Eric raises an eye.
Seth Lerch: yes, yes, I didn't tell you at the time. Slightly under one year ago at WCF Fifteen, I introduced a new tradition. One that would absolutely destroy the company. AND I'M DOING IT AGAIN!
The crowd boos. Eric just shakes his head.
Seth Lerch: That's right, fans! There is one goal in WCF, one last goal... one final destination. The WCF World Heavyweight Title. And at One, we'll have the second ever Final Destination match!
The crowd does pop for that.
Seth Lerch: If you don't know, Eric, this match features four pillars with wires connecting them, yada yada, long story short, climb those wires and bam - you've got a contract for a WCF World Title match wherever and whenever you want. And Eric, I'm inviting you to be the first entrant into the match!
Eric eyes Seth.
Seth Lerch: Don't answer now. Think about it! And Thomas Uriel Bates? Gemini Battle? Corey Black? You guys are invited too, whoever doesn't walk out with the belt later tonight. This match changed WCF forever last year... Who is gonna do it this time?
Master of Puppets plays. Eric waits patiently until the crowd cheers can cheer as “You Know My Name” starts playing over the speaker system again and Eric throws the microphone to the ring announcer and makes his way out of the ring, slapping hands again with the fans at ringside.
Zach Davis: Wow. Well, after a long absence, Eric Price is back as a full-time competitor here in WCF, I never expected that.
Freddy Whoa: This is not the WCF he left and he will need to work to prove himself with this new crop of talent. Does he still have it? Can he enter a match like FINAL DESTINATION?!
Zach Davis: He’s back in action starting next week so we will have to wait and see. I wonder who his first opponent will be.
World Title Match
Sudden Death Hell in a Cell
Weapons Hanging From the Ceiling
There Must Be A Winner
Gemini Battle vs Thomas Uriel Bates vs Corey Black
Zach Davis: We’re not playing around here folks. Welcome back to slam. We had the entrants come in at the commercial break because we wanted to make sure that this match was presented uninterrupted and in its entirety live right here on whatever network you happen to be watching this on.
Freddy Whoa: The cell has begun to descend on the competitors. Chairs hang from every corner, a ladder dangles from the center and tables are chained to the sides.
Zach Davis: And don’t forget those ominous burlap sacks that are hanging over each turnbuckle post.
Corey Black, Thomas Bates and Gemini Battle stand in the respective corners while head referee Stanley Moses explains the rules.
Zach Davis: After last week’s fiasco the WCF architectural team has reinforced this cell so no one can get out… there MUST be a winner. This is SJUDDEN DEATH!
The bell rings and the match begins. Black charges towards Bates then stops short causing the big man to flinch in feigned retaliation. Corey Black begins to laugh and point at the larger competitor and his cowardice before being cracked aside the skull with a burlap sack. The camera pans out and Gemini Battle stands over him before rolling him out of the ring, dropping the bag and pointing at Bates mouthing ‘just me and you.’ And the crowd pops.
Bates lunges towards Gemini who gets out of the way but not without delivering a few jabs to the kidneys of Bates. Another lunge and another set of jabs at Bates’ kidneys.
Zach Davis: Gem knows he can’t match strength with the big man, and is using his speed to his advantage. But as we’ve seen Bates can keep up with even the quickest of competitors.
Bates lunges again and finally gets his hands on Gemini. He tosses him into a corner and crashes his head on a mystery burlap sack. Bates runs forward with a big boot, but Gemini dodges and then delivers a low blow to Bates sending him to the floor. Gemini reaches for the bag and unties it from the side. He reaches inside and pulls out…
Zach Davis: Is that a Taser?
Gemini points it at Bates, presses a button and two wires shoot out, stick in his chest and then Bates starts to convulse uncontrollably. Gemini laughs as he turns a dial on it raising the juice running through the wires. Smiling, and in control Gemini drops the gun and goes over to the bag he had struck Black with. He looks inside, smiles menacingly and then pours the bag of jacks on the floor.
Freddy Whoa: What are those things?
Zach Davis: Those are jacks.
Freddy Whoa: alright, Whitey… what kind of high falootin’ type of game is that?
Zach Davis: you take a rubber ball and bounce it and you have to pick these up before you catch the ball.
Freddy Whoa: Oh, like “Pickup Rocks…’ You white folk are funny with how you pay for things you can find on the street.
Zach Davis: Well whatever you think of the toy, anyone who has ever stepped on one barefoot knows the agony that they can cause, and it looks like there are about a thousand of them strewn upon the floor.
Gemini’s only concern is how he is able to slam the big man on them. He looks over and Bates has returned to his feet. Gemini reaches down and picks up the gun and cranks the dial up to ten. But Bates simply tears the probes out of his skin leaving two small punctures in his chest and looks wild eyed at Gemini who throws the gun at Bates causing it to shatter off the massive man’s chest.
Bates grabs Gemini by the shirt and pulls him close. He lifts him up in the air with two hands with the intention of slamming him down onto the jacks when he drops him to his feet when Corey Black charges in with a steel chair and crushes the big man over the back.
It does nothing but infuriate the man, but Black is no stranger to a giant no selling his attacks. He delivers another chair shot, and another slightly staggering the mountain. But Bates remains relentless in his resolve as he continues to step towards Black with each blow.
Finally Black winds up and delivers a shot just as Gemini chop blocks him sending Bates down on top of the jacks before he rolls out of the ring and starts rubbing his back on the cage to pop out the metal objects like a fucking bear scratching it’s back on a tree.
Meanwhile back in the ring Corey Black and Gemini Battle stand face to face, Black with a chair while Gemini grabs yet another bag off the turnbuckles. Gemini shouts ‘pussy’ towards Black who swings wildly with the chair and Gemini narrowly dodges it. Gemini reaches in and pulls out… a button? He presses it not worrying about the potential ramifications and a ladder falls from the ceiling of the cell. A small red light flashes on it.
Freddy Whoa: I’m being told that a small batch of C4 was placed on the bottom of that ladder. And there’s a 30 second timer on it. The wrestlers don’t know that.
Zach Davis: Well Corey Black has been around the black a couple of times, I think he knows. He just kicked the ladder towards Gemini.
Gemini takes the ladder and picks it up. He uses the front of it to hit Corey in the gut before setting it up in the center of the cell. He looks down at Corey Black and he begins to climb up the ladder.
Freddy Whoa: 3…2…1…….0….-1…-2…-3…
Nothing happens, but Gemini has made it to the top. He’s looking at Corey Black who has rolled out of the ring.
Zach Davis: I guess it was a dud.
Gemini begins to climb down the ladder, really having no point on being on…
The C4 explodes sending Gemini over the top rope and through one of the tables attached on the side of the cell.
Zach Davis: That explosion just sent Gemini flying through the air and with that sickening crash it looks like he’s out!
Corey black laughs, having had an idea of what was going to happen, but his joy is short lives when he is met with a vicious boot to the face by Bates sending him crashing hard into the table behind him. Bates looks enraged at both men who are on opposite sides of the ring so he walks over to Black and rolls him inside the ring. He follows suit and goes for a pin.
BLACK KICKS OUT!
But barely. He rolls outside of the ring again trying to regain his composure. Bates looks over at Gemini who seems out cold and he rolls out to get him. He unceremoniously tosses him like a sack of potatoes into the ring and follows suit. He goes for a quick cover.
BATTLE KICKS OUT!
And he too rolls out of the ring towards where Black is to regain his composure leaving a furious Thomas Bates alone in the ring.
Zach Davis: The Bates Boot usually finishes it off, but Corey Black had too much time to recover as did Gemini from that wicked assault with an explosion. Thomas Bates wants that World Title more than anything, but I think in order to win this match he’s going to have to tap into a side of him he’s unfamiliar with. Passion to win may not be enough tonight folks, he is going to have to seriously hurt both of these men if he intends on walking out of here tonight with the strap.
Corey uses Gemini’s prone body to get up before he delivers a kick to his gut for good measure. Corey eyes the final burlap sack at the same time as Bates they both rush towards it, and grab it at the same time. The play tug of War, with Bates quickly gaining the advantage of Black has a vice like grip on the satchel and refuses to let go.
Suddenly out of nowhere Gemini comes rushing in and dives in between the two of them at gets the final sack. He opens it up and pulls out an old fashioned hammer. He holds it in his hand like a skilled contractor and swings wildly like a very unskilled one towards both Bats and Black, keeping them at bay.
Bates and Black look at each other and then both charge at Gemini delivering a double boot to his head sending him toppling over the top rope and hard to the concrete below. Both men are left hanging with one leg over the top rope but Bates swings with a massive knife edge chop to bring Black back into the ring leaving the War rematch alone in the center of the ring.
Zach Davis: Bates has been struck with a Taser and then slammed on a pile of Jacks. Black has been cracked across the head with a sack of metal as well as received a vicious Bates boot and a shot with a ladder to his kidneys. Meanwhile Gemini is outside after having been exploded and then on the receiving end of a double boot to the head. Only one man can win tonight, and with Gemini out of commission this truly seems like Sudden Death here right now.
Freddy Whoa: Never has that term been more appropriate.
Bates steps up to the downed Champion and steps on his chest. Corey tries to get the massive boot off of him, but it’s almost as though he is completely out of energy. He has nothing left, but still have the fire to swing his way to freedom. He finally gets the bot off of him and gets to his feet before spitting in Bates’ face.
Bates clenches his fist and then delivers a haymaker to the side of Black’s head. He drops his knees onto Black’s shoulders and delivers a forearm strike…
Zach Davis: Shades of War.
Thomas Bates looks at his opponent before delivering another forearm strike, and another, and another. He busts Black open and then repeatedly delivers strike after strike. Stanley Moses is shouting at Bates who seems to be oblivious to the head referee’s pleas.
Freddy Whoa: By the rules of this match he can’t simply call a knockout. He has to go for the pin, but Bates won’t stop hitting Black with those forearms.
Finally Moses pulls Bates off of him and explains the situation. Bates returns to reality and looks behind him for Gemini who is beginning to stir. He looks down at Black and then drops and hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: WHAT!?
Without wasting a single second because he's so angry, Bates picks Corey up and VICIOUSLY, without any kind of care, grabs him from behind and slams him down with The Badge. A hasty, sloppy but impactful finisher delivered.. Bates pins once more.
Gemini Battle dives in at the last second but Moses has already dropped his hand for the three and called for the bell. A Broken and bloody Corey Black lay in the center of the ring, a dejected Gemini Battle beside him while Thomas Bates accepts the World Championship Belt for the second time in his career, however, the look on his face tells a different story than the one that Zach Davis is telling.
Zach Davis: After 2 weeks of hell Thomas Bates has regained the title that Corey Black took from him. But something tells me that this story is far from over!
Mile Zero by Periphery hits.
Freddy Whoa: But another story is soon reaching it's climax - Thomas Uriel Bates and Joey Flash!
Joey Flash simply steps out onto the stage. Bates, staring down at his newly won belt, eventually notices Corey and turns towards him.
Zach Davis: Bates realizes there is no rest for the weary... only a second after defeating Corey Black and taking the belt back for himself and Team WCF, Joey Flash is here.
The two men stare each other down - Champion and challenger.
Freddy Whoa: Here on Slam, we've crowned a new World Champion.... and Joey Flash challenging Thomas Uriel Bates is set for One. THE BATTLE FOR THE HEART AND SOUL OF WCF HAS BEGUN!
Before Freddy can finish his sentence, Corey Black - despite being nearly unconscious - spins him around and hits a stiff Roaring Elbow strike. Corey grabs the belt from his grasp and smashes him in the face with it.
Zach Davis: COME ON! This man just won the World Title. God damn it, Corey!
Gemini Batle rushes Corey, but in an instant Corey drops the belt to the ground and lifts Gemini Battle up.
Freddy Whoa: No....
Corey Black looks to the camera. Joey Flash, still doing nothing on stage but standing there and nodding in approval, grins as Corey drops Gemini Battle with a Burning Hammer onto the WCF World Heavyweight Title.
Freddy Whoa: Whoa.
Black rolls out of the ring and collapses; it really was one last surge of adrenaline.
Zach Davis: What a coincidence. Thomas Uriel Bates, Gemini Battle, Corey Black, all of our World Title scene - they're all laid out, tired, exhausted, except one man - Joey Flash, standing tall at the entryway.
Freddy Whoa: Medics are attending to Gemini Battle, uh... the way Corey landed with his head, I don't know, I just... Shit. It doesn't look good.
Zach Davis: Fans, we'll update you when we can. But we really are out of time.
Slam fades to black with the smiling face of Joey Flash as Gemini Battle is loaded onto a stretcher and Thomas Uriel Bates, the new World Champion, is laid out.
