  • WCF History 101 Intro
  • Iggy Pop's Little Know It All is playing in the background as we open up backstage again. We go back to Shannan and Kyle, the same as when we left.

    Shannan Lerch: Welcome back to WCF History 101!

    Kyle Steel: When we left you, both Gravedigger and Logan had made their returns, and Steve Carr had become the General Manager of Slam by making an unlikely alliance with Seth Lerch. And-... Wait.. our signal is breaking up.. what's going on-

  • X Ad
  • The screen flickers off and on, replacing the current image with snow. A song starts low and then gets louder so the audience can hear the words.

    First we gonna ROCK, Then we gonna ROLL
    Then we let it POP, GO LET IT GO
    X gonna give it to ya
    He gonna give it to ya
    X gonna give it to ya
    He gonna give it to ya

    The camera starts at the street. All you can see is something burning in the distance, and a pair of expensive Italian hand crafted shoes.

    Switches to a shot of DMX singing:
    X gonna give it to ya
    Fuck wait for you to get it on your own
    X gonna deliver to ya
    Knock knock, open up the door, it's real
    Wit the non-stop, pop pop and stainless steel
    Go hard getting busy wit it

    Back to the shoes, the angle zooms up and you see some sleek leather pants and some awesome customized kneepads with a green Xs across them.

    You see an unknown guy powerbombing Dogg. Destroying some big guys who look like bouncers. Beating the hell out of Gayfather backstage.

    DMX:
    Damn right and I'll do it again
    Cuz I am right so I gots to win
    Break break wit the enemy
    But no matter how many cats I break bread wit
    I'll break who you sendin me
    You motherfucker never wanted nothin
    But your wife said, that's for the light day
    I'm gettin down, down
    Make it say freeze
    But won't be the one endin up on his knees (Whoo)
    Please, If the only thing you cats did is come out to play
    Get out my way

    The camera pans up, seeing a nice belt buckle, again with X on it. A flowing back leather trench coat and a stylish colorful silk shirt are now in view. You can see that the flames in the background coming from a nearby building and some cars.

    Dake Ken falling victim to this guy in a weapons attack. Dark Angel being thrown out a window. Trent getting the Xplicit (Diamond Cutter).

    DMX:
    Ain't never gave nothin to me
    But every time I turn around
    Cats got they hands out wantin something from me
    I ain't got it so you can't get it
    Lets leave it at that cuz I ain't wit it
    Hit it wit full strength
    I'm a jail nigga
    So I face the world like it's Earl in the bullpen
    You against me, me against you
    Whatever, whenever
    What the fuck you gonna do?

    The camera finally reaches the top and shows the back of a head of spiked black hair. The man turns and you see X-Rated, with his custom sunglasses. The camera pulls back and shows the whole kickass package. He pulls off his glasses and you can see that the whole scene is a Hollywood set. Electra, his valet, come up and kisses him on the cheek. He drops her for an exaggerated Hollywood kiss, then the two mount a motorcycle and drive into the burning set.

    The whole scene fades. And words fill the screen.

    “A real action hero is coming to WCF.”

    “And the show is going to be X-RATED."

  • Ultimate Showdown - School of Pain
  • 9/28/03 - School of Pain - Gravedigger's Retirement
    9/28/03 - School of Pain - Defman vs PC Cradle
    9/28/03 - School of Pain - Tag Team Titles!
    9/28/03 - School of Pain - Outcast/Dehart/Logan vs Seth Lerch/Steve Carr/Epic

    Shannan Lerch: Wow. That was.... interesting. Anyway, back to our show. The future of WCF was anyone's guess. Although we had a great World Champ in Gravedigger, Lerch and Carr's unlikely alliance, Logan's unpredictibility, and several madmen coming into WCF all lead to plenty of surprises.

    Kyle Steel: The madmen, namely Madd Dogg, PC Cradle, and Defman were taking the WCF by storm. Madd Dogg had been going through WCF stars like they were nothing since the start, but Cradle and Defman were new. They had a hardcore mentality that we hadn't seen since the hayday of another WCF great, Junkyard Justice.

    Shannan Lerch: Madd Dogg won the Tag Team Titles by himself, without a team. On the first Slam following Ultimate Showdown, he was booked in a match where he had to defend them against Gravedigger and Mike D and Bishop and Priest. Gravedigger and Mike D won. Dogg and Gravedigger had always had animosity towards each other, but this really sent Dogg going after the Champ.

    Kyle Steel: Unfortunately, right as the days neared the World Title match at School of Pain, Gravedigger against Madd Dogg... It seemed as if Dogg lost his edge. He dropped the "Madd" part of his name, and called himself the "Doggfather". He became a kinder, gentler version of his former self. He lost to Gravedigger.

    Shannan Lerch: The match was as important as what happened afterwards. Let's show you that.

  • 9/28/03 - School of Pain - Gravedigger's Retirement
  • Fireworks go off on the stage as "Voodoo" by Godsmack plays on the arena's speakers. The timekeeper walks over and hands the world title through the ropes to the referee. The referee walks over as Gravedigger holds his arms up celebrating. The referee straps the world title around GD's waist. A look of relief and peace is on the face of Gravedigger. He stops celebrating and walks over to the side of the ring. GD gestures for a mic and is given one a couple of seconds later. He walks back to the middle of the ring and puts the mic to his lips.

    Gravedigger: Cut my music a second. I gotta say something!

    "Voodoo" by Godsmack slowly fades out as does the noise coming from the crowd.

    Gravedigger: First off, I gotta congratulate Dogg on a hard-fought matchup.

    Gravedigger looks over at Dogg who is getting up with help from the referee. Dogg pushes the ref away as he finally gets to his feet. Gravedigger walks over and extends his hand. Dogg looks at it for a second or two before taking it. The two men shake hands. Gravedigger holds Dogg's hand up and points to him. He pats Dogg on the back as he leaves the ring. GD turns back to the crowd.

    Gravedigger: That man right there, he's gonna be the champion one day. Could be a week from now, could be a month from now. No telling when. But too bad I won't be here when that happens.

    Shannan Lerch: What is he talking about?

    Zach Davis: Is he going on vacation again??

    Gravedigger: I've been in this business for nearly 4 years now. As a matter of fact it'll be my 4-year anniversary in two and a half weeks give or take a day. In those basically four years, I've done it all. DONE IT ALL. In every wrestling federation I've signed on with, I've gone up against the best those federations have had to offer. I have defeated every single one of them. I have more championship belts than even one of the greatest wrestlers to ever grace a wrestling ring...Ric Flair. But as you all know, titles don't always mean everything. I've wrestled in almost every single type of match and as my titles and record shows, I've come out on top nearly every single time. When I stepped through the doors of WCF on May 25th, 2003...I could not have imagined that on this day...September 28th, 2003 that I would have become a two-time WCF tag team champion and a two-time WCF world champion. Nor would I have thought I'd beat every single challenger who got in my way. Matthew Steele in the War match. Mace, Hellz Angel, and Logan at Blast. Cyrus at Ultimate Showdown. Steve Carr not long after that, and most recently Bishop...and tonight Dogg. I never would have thought that the tension between myself and my friend...yes my friend Bishop would reach a boiling point. I never would have thought we'd end up turning on each other and causing this huge war between us. But see, I wouldn't trade anything that happened here for anything in the world. My popularity and my wallet size have soared since I joined WCF...and so has my name value. The years, however, have taken a toll on me and I've decided that it's time...for me to hang up the boots once and for all. As a wrestler, I'm hanging up my boots. I'll still be in the business in one form or another, but not here in WCF. So...

    Gravedigger reaches behind himself and unstraps the world title. He holds it up one more time for the fans to see before handing it to the baffled referee.

    Gravedigger: ...it's time I give this to you Mr. Referee. You take it back there to Seth Lerch when you go to the back.

    Gravedigger turns back to the crowd.

    Gravedigger: So, I'd like to close by saying thank you. Thank you to all of those who tuned in each week to see the phenom that is Gravedigger. Thank you to all those who paid their hard-earned cash to buy tickets for each and every WCF show I was wrestling on. Thank you to all those who logged onto the Internet and talked about how I was holding down the other talent here. Thank you to all those wrestlers in the back who were in the ring with me, those who influenced me or inspired me or motivated me in some way, and those who were inspired, influenced or motivated by my actions in this ring. I wish that whoever holds that world title next can put into it the same respect, power, and importance that I put into it myself. But don't fret, fans. Hey, I might even get put in the WCF Hall of Fame. Until I see you again...

    Gravedigger tosses the mic to the timekeeper on the outside. "Voodoo" by Godsmack plays one last time as Gravedigger climbs each turnbuckle and raises his arms. The crowd goes absolutely insane and not a single person is in their seat. Gravedigger chants burst from every mouth in the arena. Security presses in trying to control the crowd somewhat as they cheer Gravedigger one last time in WCF. Gravedigger finally finishes posing on the fourth turnbuckle. He jumps down and rolls out of the ring. Gravedigger jogs around slapping the hand of each fan that's able to get close enough to the barricade. Finally he starts making his way up the ramp, arm raised. He stops one last time looking out at the crowd when he gets to the top of the ramp. He breathes in and then turns, about to head into the back... when Anger Rising plays.

    Kyle Steel: I hope Seth Lerch isn't here to ruin this for Gravedigger...

    Seth walks out, but he doesn't look angry or vindictive. If anything, he looks saddened. He's holding something that resembles a plaque.

    Seth Lerch: Hold up, buddy, you're not leaving just like that. You said you may just get inducted into the Hall of Fame? Do you know who gets into that, Gravedigger? Only the best. Only the ones that have made some significant impact on WCF. So with that in mind... I present this to you.

    Seth hands Gravedigger the plaque. It reads "WCF Hall of Fame" with a gold plate saying "Gravedigger" on it. Seth extends his hand, and Gravedigger shakes it appreciativly. Seth then pulls Gravedigger in, and the two hug. Seth raises Gravediggers hand in the air as the copyright info displays and we fade to black.

    We're back to Shannan and Kyle backstage.

    Kyle Steel: And with that, WCF's World Champion was gone. And the one sure bet we had, that Gravedigger would be Champ, was shattered.

    Shannan Lerch: On the September 21st episode of Slam, Cradle made his debut during PC Cradle vs Epic vs Defman vs Mandy. Little did we know it, but it would set off a chain of events that we're still feeling today.

    Kyle Steel: Both Cradle and Defman had claims to winning that match, as they made opponents tap and near the same time. So at School of Pain, the first meeting between the two was booked. Defman vs PC Cradle. We have that match for you now.

  • 9/28/03 - School of Pain - Defman vs PC Cradle
  • Zach Davis: Next is something rather more than a match. It is more of a bloodbath. I hope you brought your raincoat Shannan. These two monstrosities have escalated this match far above it's expectations. Maybe, someone will walk out of this alive.

    Shannan Lerch: I know how you feel Zach. Cradle and Defman have the highest threshold, no, lust for pain I have ever seen in this business if not anywhere. Here comes our first competitor, Defman...

    The arena lights fade to black and Defman's maniacal voice rolls over the PA System...

    PA System: the voices, the voices, the voices, the VOICES!!
    The voices, they take control,
    The voices, destroy your soul,
    The voices, they kill us all,
    The voices, why wont they fall?
    THE VOICES!!!

    Then, the spotlight scrolls over to the curtain. Several explosions echo throughout the arena, and the lights flash back on. Out of no where is Defman, but he seems to still be in his straight jacket. An assistant quickly unbuckles his jacket and runs off. Defman gets out of the jacket and starts down the ramp. He seems to be talking to himself with his head lowered towards the ramp floor. As he reaches the ring, he stops. Next, he jumps up and steps over the apron. Defman circles the ring with a sadistic smile on his face.

    Kyle Steel: ...We all can only imagine the carnage at which is going to take place, but let's not sell PC Cradle short. He is going to start on the way to the ring any second now.

    Immediatly, "Get to the gone" bursts through the arena. The fans wanting to see Cradle appears roar with authority. Defman man paces the ring with that same smile across his face. Then, PC Cradle appears through the curtain with his steel chair in his hand. He makes no due when he quickly walks down the ramp. He rolls into the ring and drops the chair. Savoring the moment, Defman stands there. Cradle makes sure this isn't going to be an attack before he climbs the turnbuckle. He raises his arms and then, crosses them. He screams a couple of things before he makes the devil horns on his hands. Finally, he jumps off and the bell rings.

    Shannan Lerch: Here we go...I hope this doesn't turn out too bad...

    Cradle goes for a right hook. Defman stands there with the smile still. PC hits him a couple times, but Defman just stands there. Finally, PC pulls off a side kick to the mid section. Defman grunts a bit and retaliats with a closeline. Cradle hits the ground, and Defman lifts him back up. PC hits a jawbreaker to send Defman to the ground. Cradle rolls out a bit to think about his strategy. Defman joins him outside to lift him into the air. Then, Defman goes to toss him onto the crowd barrier. Cradle hits hard, but turns around to knee him in the gut in preparation for a powerpomb. Seeing that his efforts would be futile to attempt this on Defman, he just pile drives him onto the cement. Without letting him rest, PC bashes his head on the ground rapidly. Defman gets to his feet as Cradle goes to dropkick him. Defman denies him of that and stomps on him as he hits the ground. Defman rolls him back into the ring and punches him without any restraint. The referee just rests on the side as he has no control over this. Suddenly, Cradle kicks Defman and rolls up. He ddts Defman to the mat and goes to the turnbuckle. He leaps and attempts a leg drop.

    Zach Davis: From the top....

    Defman stands up and PC hits the mat.

    Shannan Lerch: And he hits the mat....

    Defman lifts Cradle up, but PC gives him several gut shots. Defman lets go and Cradle grabs his steel chair. He goes for a chair shot and hits Defman square in the head. Defman shakes a little, but stnads there smiling.

    Kyle Steel: Did you see that?

    Zach Davis: Yes, he is one of the most monsterous wrestlers here in WCF.

    Defman gives a big boot to the chair which, in turn, sends it into Cradle's face. He falls down, but bounces back up to send the chair into Defman's gut. PC trips Defman with the chair and folds the chair onto his leg. PC stomps on the chair furosiously. Defman yells. He kicks Cradle to the mat and gets up acting as though it had no effect on him. He throws the chair out of the ring and lifts PC up. He sends him into the turnbuckle with an irish whip. He goes for a spear, but Cradle hops over him. So, Defman's should colides with the turnbuckle. Taking advantage of this, PC turns him around and knees him in the mid section. The crowd counts the series...

    Crowd: 1...........
    2...................
    3................
    4...........
    5..........
    6.........
    7........

    Then, he closelines Defman to end this hanous attack. PC locks in an side arm lock. Defman shakes his head, but still, his smile remains.

    Shannan Lerch: This could be the end right here. PC Cradle might pull this one out.

    After several seconds of this PC Cradle lets go.

    Zach Davis: What? He had this one in the bag. Why did he do that? That may just come back to haunt him.

    PC goes outside of the ring and pulls a table out. He sets it up and Defman comes charging from behind with a spear to PC's back. PC and Defman hit the ground hard. Defman lifts PC up and goes to toss him onto the table, but Cradle slides behind him. He smashes a forearm into Defman's head sending him onto the table. PC slides onto the apron and leaps off. He leg drops Defman through the table. Defman sits up just as PC rolls to his feet. Fists fly as they collide. Defman headbutts PC. PC hits the ground. Defman gets a ring bell and smashes it over Cradle's face. He immediatly bursts open and spills blood everywhere. Defman tastes the blood on the bell, and PC hops to his feet. He smashes the bell into Defman's face. This splits his skull open, as well.

    Zach Davis: Blood is everywhere. Just as expected.

    Defman shakes it off, but PC goes for a powerbomb. Amazingly, he pulls it off nd hops into the ring. He readies himself for Defman, but Defman plows him to the mat. Cradle hops up and bounces off of the ropes. He leaps at Defman, but he catches PC.

    Shannan Davis: Amazing show of strength by Defman.

    Defman locks in a bear hug. Zack Davis leaps to his feet.

    Kyle Steel: THIS COULD BE IT!

    Defman squeezes harder and PC yells in agony. Out of no where, the black steel chair used to hit Defman earlier nails him in the back of the head. Defman hits the ground, and PC turns to see his savior.

    Zach Davis: Oh my god! It's Danny! He has some power in him.

    The camera shows little Danny holding the steel chair in his hands. He is standing over Defman with tears in his eyes. Cradle just stands there in amazment before he whipes his tears. Defman gets back up and goes to crush the little boy, but PC steps in with a huge german suplex. He, quickly, locks in a Single Leg Boston Crab. Defman scowls as blood runs down his face. Cradle leans back as Danny stands there with a blank look in his face. Defman squirms a bit before his eyes focus on the little boy. He stares at Danny.

    Defman: London bridge's falling down....
    falling down...
    falling down...
    falling down...
    London bridge's falling down...
    My fair lady...

    He breaks out in a twisted laughter before he taps out. The referee motions to ring the bell, and goes to raise PC's arm. Defman arises and grabs the chair from Danny. He smashes it over PC's head. Then, he takes out the ref. As he turns his attention towards Danny, officials run out and try to wrestle him to the mat. He gets away and runs up the ramp with a smile on his blood stained face. PC gets up and goes over to Danny. He whipes his tears. Finally, they exit the ring with "Get to the Gone" trumpeting his victory.

    Back to backstage.

    Kyle Steel: Cradle won in their first encounter, but that wouldn't be the last we'd see of the two. Not by a long shot.

    Shannan Lerch: Another notable experience we saw at School of Pain was the controversy involving the Tag Team Titles. I can't even explain it, so we'll just roll the footage.

  • 9/28/03 - School of Pain - Tag Team Titles!
  • The Friday the Thirteenth theme plays as The Creeper and the Hacker walk out to the ring slowly.

    Zach Davis: These men have been going for the Tag Titles ever since they got here, and we didn't HAVE Tag Titles! Tonight may be their night.

    Change by Deftones plays as the lights go out. Gravedigger steps out, Dobbie-less for once, but accompanied by the monster of a man named Dark Arts Wizard.

    Kyle Steel: Back for a one time deal, this may be Dark Arts Wizard's last match in WCF... it'll be sad to see him go.

    Shannan Lerch: What a way to leave, though, the Tag Team Champions!

    The sound of drums plays, and Bishop and Priest walk out next. They have a look of motivation like no other on their faces as they rush to the ring, and stand in their corner.

    Zach Davis: Rules are the same as any of WCF's other tag matches. First pin wins.

    Shannan Lerch: Let's get goi-

    CAN'T... STOP... THE... PAINKILLER!!!

    Painkiller by Judas Priest/Rob Halford hits the speakers, and Hellz Angel and Scavenger of Sorrow walk out to a HUGE pop! The lights go out, and seemingly EVERYONE turns on a lighter and holds it up. The lights soon come back on, and Hellz and SOS are standing right at the ring. Hellz has a mic in hand.

    Hellz Angel: Ragnarok, you put me through HELL. You put me out of WCF, sent me to the hospital, and attacked me there. And you thought you could GET AWAY WITH IT? No way in HELL, guys! I talked to Lerch before the show, and the matches for tonight have been changed. There will be TWO Tag Team Title matches tonight.

    Zach Davis: I... I'm amazed to see Eternal Agony here! And TWO Tag Title matches? What will they be?

    Hellz Angel: ...Right now, to settle the score, once and for all. Eternal Agony vs Ragnarok. Tag Team Titles. Lumberjack matches, with Hacker, Creeper, Bishop, and Priest as the Lumberjacks. No disqualifications.. starting NOW.

    The Monster Squad and Bishop and Priest all roll out of the ring, but Gravedigger and DAW hold their ground. Hellz and SOS roll in, and Hellz starts brawling with Gravedigger as SOS brawls with DAW!

    Zach Davis: This is amazing! An unexpected match, but what a GREAT one!

    Shannan Lerch: What will the second match be, though?

    Kyle Steel: Word from the back is that the winner of this will face Monster Squad and Bishop and Priest.

    Hellz and SOS both hit their opponents with Superkicks simutaneously! Gravedigger and DAW go down, and the Eternal Agony team raises their arms in the air to applause.

    Zach Davis: They're not usually fan favorites, but I guess since this is their big return the fans are making an exception.

    Hellz and SOS pick DAW up and grabs his throat. They hit a Double Chokeslam on him.

    Kyle Steel: It was hard for TWO men to get him up, wow.

    However, Gravedigger has gotten up by now, and Clotheslines both of them down, hard. Hellz stands up and is met with another Clothesline. Hellz goes down again, hard, but gets back up. He runs at GD but GD catches him and hits a Powerslam into pin! One. Two. No! Hellz kicks out. Gravedigger stands up, as does DAW, and head towards SOS. They pick him up and hit their version of the Total Elimination!

    Shannan Lerch: Insane amounts of tag moves being utilized by these men.

    Hellz is up, however, and grabs DAW from behind. He throws him out of the ring, and to the waiting lumberjacks below. The lumberjacks start being on him mercilessly.

    Zach Davis: They know they might have to face him in a matter of minutes.

    Gravedigger rolls outside the ring, voluntarily, to help fend off the lumberjacks. While they're all busy, Hellz drops to the outside of the ring as well, opposite side, and grabs a chair. He rolls back in, unnoticed by anyone else. Once Gravedigger and Dark Arts Wizard are able to get back into the ring.. they're met with MASSIVE chair shots over the head from Hellz!

    Kyle Steel: Those chair shots have A LOT of emotion behind them, they come from quite a lot of pain that Hellz has had to endure... and he's making GD and DAW go through it too.

    SOS is up now, and throws Gravedigger back out of the ring. They then pick up Dark Ars Wizard and Pegamum onto the aforementioned chair! Hellz makes the pin, while the lumberjacks are beating on Gravedigger.

    One.

    Two.

    Three.

    Shannan Lerch: Eternal Agony are the Tag Team Champions!

    The bell rings. Gravedigger looks up angrily, and rolls into the ring. Hellz and SOS retreat to the outside. Gravedigger grumbles, and helps DAW up. The crowd gives DAW a standing ovation, and starts a "D-A-W!" chant. Gravedigger and DAW, Ragnarok, raise their arms in the air, with the Titles, one last time before setting them in the ring and stepping out. They walk to the back, quietly and emotionlessly.

    Zach Davis: Is the next Tag match starting now?

    Kyle Steel: I think it is, Zach, I think it is.

    Eternal Agony gets back into the ring, and give their Titles to the ref, who sets them outside the ring. Hellz waits on the outside, SOS staring the match. Bishop and Hacker start for their teams, and they roll in as well. Bishop and Hacker both start beating down on SOS.

    Shannan Lerch: They know SOS is warn out, Eternal Agony is at a big disadvantage here.

    Zach Davis: But they beat Ragnarok.. they got what they wanted.

    Bishop and Hacker throw SOS to the ropes, and then hit a Double Flapjack. SOS rolls out of the ring, and Bishop Clotheslines Hellz down too, leaving only two men in the ring. Hacker kicks Bishop a few times, and then hits a Headbutt. Bishop goes down, and Hacker follows up with another Headbutt. He then tags in the Creeper. Creeper jumps into the ring and hits a Leg Drop. He pins Bishop...

    One.

    Two.

    No! Bishop kicks out! Creeper picks him up and throws him to the ring, where he's able to tag in Priest. Priest gets into the ring with a head of steam, and Clotheslnes Creeper down. Creeper gets back up and Priest goes for another Clotheslne, but Creeper ducks it, turns Priest around, and hits a Chokeslam!

    Kyle Steel: Holy crap. Priest is a big man!

    Creeper picks Priest up again, and hits ANOTHER Chokeslam! He picks him up one more time, and Hacker jumps into the ring. They hit a Double Chokeslam!

    Zach Davis: Creeper loves hitting 3 Chokeslams in a row.. it might be over.

    Just to make sure, they pick Priest up and hit the Monster Bomb! Creeper pins. Bishop goes to get in the ring, but Hacker throws him back out... One, two.. three!

    Shannan Lerch: NEW Tag Champs! Again!

    The ref hands Creeper and Hacker their Tag Titles, which they hold proudly in the air.

    Kyle Steel: Those Titles mean a lot to that team, and they sure as hell deserve them. They've stuck with WCF as long as anyone and have been as dedicated as anyone I've ever seen.

    Zach Davis: But hey, guys... what happened to Eternal Agony?

    Apparently, the Tag Champs, Hellz and SOS, walked out of the arena during the match. They're nowhere to be seen.

    Shannan Lerch: They didn't care about the Tag Titles... they cared about being Ragnarok, and ending their feud once and for all.

    We go back to the backstage area with our two announcers.

    Kyle Steel: And there we had it, the Monster Squad had FINALLY become Tag Team Champions.

    Shannan Lerch: Last, but not least, from School of Pain, we had a six man elimination tag match. The "Anti TOT" faction against the Team of Treachery. Outcast, Dehart, and Logan had been the thorns in the TOT's side for too long, and they were going up against Seth Lerch, Steve Carr, and Epic. Everyone thought the TOT would be ended that night. But as usual, we were about to witness the unexpected.

  • 9/28/03 - School of Pain - Outcast/Dehart/Logan vs Seth Lerch/Steve Carr/Epic
  • Zach Davis: Let's go over the rules of this upcoming six man tag match.

    Kyle Steel: It's elimination, first of all. Pinfalls, submissions... however, no disqualifications. However, it is NOT Texas Tornado rules.

    Shannan Lerch: That's it? Excellent.

    'God of Thunder' hits and the crowd cheers. Outcast walks out in black jeans. He goes to the ring with is eyes fixed on the ring. Nothing else phases him. He slides in and raises his hands

    The lights go out, and "Man in the Box" hits. After a few seconds a strobe light hits, and Dehart comes out from the back. He slowly walks down the aisle and rolls into the ring.

    "Not Falling" by Mudvayne blasts out over the PA system. Logan slowly passes his way through the curtains letting them slide off his body and fall behind him. Logan's body is drenched in water causing drops of water to fall of him as he moves down the ramp. Every now and then Logan yells at the booing crowd before rolling inside the ring. Once inside the ring Logan paces around untill his music cuts.

    Zach Davis: That looks like quite a team... the TOT and Carr don't have an easy task ahead of them.

    Better Than You by Metallica plays, and Seth Lerch, Steve Carr, and Epic walk out from the back. They walk slowly down to the ring.

    Shannan Lerch: Maybe so, but this team is obviously more of a unit. That gives them the edge.

    Kyle Steel: I guess we'll see.. right.. now!

    Seth rolls into the ring, and all three of his opponents immediately go after him. Carr and Epic run around the ring and enter through the back, and attack Outcast and Logan from behind.

    Shannan Lerch: That was a nice piece of strategy, using Lerch as a "decoy" of sorts to distract them.

    Carr and Epic both hit Back Bodydrops, and then turns to Dehart and hit a Double Suplex. The "management" team raises their arms in unison as Outcast's team rolls out of the ring, leading to several booes from the crowd. But as they turn around, Dehart rolls back into the ring and Dropkicks both Lerch and Carr out of the ring, leaving only himself and Epic.

    Zach Davis: Good, maybe we'll have some order, finally.

    Dehart stomps on Epic, as his teammates climb onto the rings apron, awaiting a tag. Dehart runs to the ropes and hits a Running Bodysplash into pin. One.. two... no, Epic kicks out. Dehart picks Epic up and throws him to the ropes, and Carr tags himself in. Dehart hits a Spinning Heel Kick on Epic, but is met with a brutal Clothesline by Carr. Carr then picks him up and starts punching him and elbowing him, into a corner. Carr picks him up and puts him on the turnbuckle. He climbs up, looking for a Superplex...

    Kyle Steel: Carr going high risk!

    And Dehart pushes him off. Carr falls to the mat, and Dehart goes for a Five Star Frog Splash, but Carr rolls out of the way! Carr rolls over and tags in Lerch.

    Zach Davis: The man that got Creeping Death out of WCF, which is Dehart's reason for hating him.

    Lerch kicks at Dehart a bit, playing with him, before taunting the crowd. He picks Dehart up and throws him to the ropes, but Dehart reverses it, sending Lerch to the ropes instead. Dehart hits a Fallaway Slam to swinging Rock Bottom! He then rolls over and tags in Outcast.

    Shannan Lerch: Seth doublecrossed Outcast last month. Haha, Outcast is such a fool.

    Outcast walks over to Lerch, laughing a bit. Epic goes to get into the ring, and the ref starts arguing with him. In the meantime, Outcast begins to pick Lerch up, but Lerch Low Blows him! As soon as this happens, Epic gets back onto the apron. Seth then tags in Carr.

    Kyle Steel: Nice cop out by our owner.. I'm ashamed to work for him.

    Carr gets in and starts kicking at Outcast. He picks him up and hits a Northern Lights Suplex pin, and the ref drops to count.

    1..

    2...

    No! Outcast kicks out. Carr picks him up and puts him in a Headlock, and then tags Epic. Epic climbs to the top turnbuckle and hits an Axe Handle Smash on the prone Outcast. Carr climbs out of the ring as Epic goes to work on Outcast. He climbs the top turnbuckle...

    Zach Davis: He'll be going for a Flying Clothesline here.

    But Outcast stands and lunges into the ropes, causing Epic to fall down and into the corner. Outcast then runs at him and hits the Sick Twist! He quickly pins, hooking the leg.

    One...

    Carr gets into the ring, ready to stop the count.

    Two...

    Logan gets in as well, and stops Carr from interfering...

    Three.

    Shannan Lerch: Crap. Epic is eliminated.

    Epic rolls out, and Lerch jumps in to take his place against Outcast. Dehart starts yelling, asking to be tagged in.. and Outcast obliges. Dehart jumps onto the turnbuckle and goes for a Missile Dropkick, and connects! Lerch goes down, and Dehart starts pummeling him. He then jumps up to the turnbuckle again, but Lerch gets up in time and hits him a few times in the stomach. Lerch then climbs up as well, and executes a Top Rope DDT.

    Kyle Steel: Impressive.

    Shannan Lerch: GO SETH.

    Lerch floats over and pins Dehart.

    One.

    Two.

    Thr.. kickout.

    Lerch is furious, and starts harassing the ref. He tags then tags Carr back in. Carr gets into the ring and starts stomping at Dehart. He then runs to the Dehart's Team corner and punches Outcast and Logan down off the apron before jumping up and hitting the Ultimatum on Dehart!

    Zach Davis: I smell elimination.

    One...

    Two...

    Kickout !

    ...Right after the three count. Dehart kicked out a split second too late.

    Shannan Lerch: SO CLOSE! But at least things are fair now.

    Dehart rolls out of the ring, and walks grudgingly to the back. Logan gets into the ring to replace him. Logan comes in with a head of steam as the crowd cheers, hitting Carr with several Clotheslines, one after another after another. He then hits an Armtoss Takedown followed by a Superkick! Logan quickly pins, hooking Carr's leg.

    One!

    Two!

    No!

    Carr manages to kick out. Logan picks him up, and signals for the Connector, to finish it off.. but Carr pushes him away, into Outcast. Outcast tags himself in, and runs at Carr, hitting a Clothesline from Hell! Carr goes down in a heap. 'Cast picks him up, and hits the Crushing NightMare. He throws Seth off the apron before pinning...

    One.

    Two.

    Three.

    Outcast has eliminated Steve Carr.

    Shannan Lerch: Uh.. it's Logan and Outcast against just Seth now. That hardly seems fair.

    Seth rolls into the ring, standing up to Outcast. Outcast laughs, but Logan begs to get tagged in. Seth shakes his head "No", but Outcast tags Logan in anyhow. Logan gets into the ring, looking cockily at Lerch and talking generic shit on him. Logan kicks him in the gut and is about to hit the Connector, but Lerch pushes him away and he runs into Outcast.

    Kyle Steel: He accidently hit his own teammate!

    Logan starts apologizing to Outcast, and picks him up... right before kicking him and hitting the Connector!!

    Zach Davis: WHAT IN THE HELL!?

    Logan and Seth start stomping furiously at Outcast, and Lerch quickly pins. One.. two.. and three. The bell rings.

    Zach Davis: I guess, technically, Lerch's team wins. Even though Logan wasn't eliminated, whatever. This is a travesty.

    Suddenly, the lights go out. A familiar song plays... it is One, by Metallica.

    Shannan Lerch: What's this!?

    They come back on, and Rick Mad is in the ring!

    Kyle Steel: He left WCF when Creeping Death got fired! But looks like he's back!

    Logan and Lerch roll out of the ring, as the crowd cheers the returning Mad. He picks up Outcast, who embraces him.

    Zach Davis: Outcast and Mad are going to be a formidable team for Logan and Se-

    Just before Davis finishes his sentence... Mad kicks Outcast, and hits a Mad DDT.

    Shannan Lerch: HAHA! Outcast got screwed twice in one night!

    Zach Davis: Just like you, most nights. But WHAT!?!? WHAT'S GOING ON!?

    Logan and Seth roll back into the ring, and all three men start kicking at Outcast, once again. They raise their arms up in the air, and Seth hands Rick and Logan TOT T-shirts... which they quickly put on.

    Kyle Steel: ...I never thought I'd see the day.

    Zach Davis: Rick Mad in the TOT, with Logan!? This is MADNESS.

    The three men get out of the ring and head to the back, to a HUGE chorus of booing and BULLSHIT! chants. They take it all in, laughing as their perfectly laid scheme has worked.

    Back to Shannan and Kyle.

    Kyle Steel: And so, the TOT was stronger than ever. Logan and Rick Mad were in it, with Seth Lerch. The craziest alliance we'd ever seen. And no one could stop them.

  • School of Pain - Helloween
  • 10/12/03 - Saturday Slam - PC Cradle Recruitment
    10/26/03 - Helloween - Defman vs PC Cradle
    10/26/03 - Helloween - Burn Out vs Rick Mad vs Outcast vs Logan vs Madd Dogg

    Shannan Lerch: The new Team of Treachery showed they meant business the first night after School of Pain. They kicked Epic out of the group and Logan, whom was also the US Champion, pinned him and won the International Title, which should have been impossible, as he's from the United States. Seth declared those two belts unified, and brought back the Television Title, and said that Logan was the new TV Champ.

    Kyle Steel: With the loss of Epic, the TOT needed to find a new member... and they did. Through deception and lies. PC Cradle had just beaten the Doggfather for the Hardcore Title, a Title that Dogg had a deathgrip on since he got it, and was going backstage to find his son... Let's show you that.

  • 10/12/03 - Saturday Slam - PC Cradle Recruitment
  • The cameraman on the rampway follows Cradle through the curtain. Cradle has his Hardcore Title draped over his shoulder, and he's removing his wrapping tape on his hands whilst he walks. A couple of people offer their congratulations to Cradle for becoming Hardcore Champ, but he ignores them as he walks. After walking maybe 25 metres along the corridor, he takes a left, leading down a dimly lit staircase. He turns right at the bottom, and comes to a plain black door. On the door is taped a piece of paper, and the camera zooms in on it whilst Cradle reads it. Written in what looks like blood, the message reads simply "I've got your boy". Cradle bursts through the door calling his son's name, but finds the room is empty. He finds his son's shoe lying in on the floor, and he picks it up.

    PC Cradle (talking to himself): That son of a bitch. That son of a BITCH! I'm gonna fuckin' kill him…

    Cradle throws his hardcore title at the wall, and grabs his solid black steel folding chair. Cradle wrenches the door open, almost pulling it off its hinges. He walks at a fast pace up the dark staircase, and off up the corridor, shouting as he goes…

    PC Cradle: Defman! Where are you son of a bitch!?

    Suddenly, from no-where, the WCF owner, Seth Lerch, step's out blocking Cradle's path. Logan is stood with his arms crossed next to Seth, and Cradle tries to shove past him. Lerch puts his hand on Cradle's shoulder…

    Seth Lerch: Hey, hey take it easy! What seems to be the problem?

    PC Cradle: That son of a bitch Defman has taken Danny! I'm gonna take my time when I find his ass…

    Seth Lerch: Relax, we got your son back.

    PC Cradle: What!? Where? Where is he? Is he Ok?

    Seth Lerch: He's ok, a little shaken up, but me and the boys were lookin' after him for you. Here, follow me…

    Seth and Logan lead Cradle to a locker room that says "Team of Treachery" on the door. Cradle looks at the sign on the door, before cautiously stepping into the room. There, sat down in the corner of the room, drinking a can of coke, is little Danny Cradle. Cradle rushes over and crouches in front of him.

    PC Cradle: Where've you been!? Dammit boy, I told you, you have to be careful round here! That's it, I'm not bringin' you to the arena anymore.

    Seth Lerch interjects himself in the proceedings.

    Seth Lerch: Hay, Cradle, can I talk to you for a minute?

    Seth tells Cradle that Danny will be ok with Logan, and that they wont let anything happen to him. Cradle and Lerch step out of the locker room and walk along the corridor, talking as they go.

    PC Cradle: That's it, man. I'm sorry if I lose you sponsors or ratings or whatever, but it's all on now. That big bastard is in deep.

    Seth Lerch: I know you want Defman. I know you want him bad. Hell, Cradle vs. Defman equals ratings! You saw the way he looked at your boy last week! And now, he's gone and kidnapped him! All these thing's he's done to you, and your gonna let it slide!

    Cradle grabs Seth by the scruff of his shirt and pulls him so they are nose to nose.

    PC Cradle: I'm not gonna let anything slide!! That son of a bitch is gonna pay for his sins!

    Seth Lerch smiles.

    Seth Lerch: That's it, use that anger! I know your angry Cradle! I know you want him real bad! But you need to focus that anger! I can help you do it, Cradle. I can help you channel your anger! Join me. Join us! If you're with the Team of Treachery, then we can stand side by side and put right what he has done to your son! Join us, Cradle. You know that it's the right thing to do!

    Seth Lerch holds his hand out stretched at Cradle. Cradle looks down at his hand, whilst Lerch focus's his eyes onto Cradle's. After a few moments, Cradle reaches out and…shakes Lerch's hand! Seth Lerch laughs loudly, as Cradle breaks a rare, sly smile at Lerch.

    Seth Lerch: Welcome to the most dominant group in professional wrestling. Now…go be with your boy…

    Cradle turns and walks off up the corridor. Seth Lerch watches him go and fellow T.O.T member Rick Mad comes up and stands beside Seth Lerch.

    Seth Lerch: Did the boy give you any crap?

    Rick Mad: Huh? What you mean?

    Seth Lerch: When you took him! Did that snivelling little shit give you any hassle?

    Rick Mad: Oh! No, not at all, I used the old bag on the head trick.

    Seth Lerch smiles as he walks with Mad.

    Seth Lerch: This is perfect! Now that we've convinced Cradle that Defman kidnapped the boy, we've managed to make our group 4 men strong, AND now we can get rid of Defman once and for all. Team of Treachery are callin' the shots now. One more matter of business to take care of before the night is over, and everything is complete...

    Rick Mad and Seth Lerch laugh and shake hands, before walking off in the direction of the Team of Treachery locker room. The camera watches them go.

    Back to Shannan and Kyle.

    Shannan Lerch: And there you have it, Cradle had joined the TOT, and they were on a path of destruction.

    Kyle Steel: Now, back to the Doggfather controversy... it turned out that Doggfather wasn't really Madd Dogg at all, but an imposter. Madd Dogg had been gone for weeks, and a man called the Gayfather had come in and taken his place and lost his Hardcore Title. Dogg came back and was anything but happy with this.

    Shannan Lerch: Regardless, Dogg was put into a World Title match at the October PPV, Helloween. Along with four other men. Madd Dogg vs Logan vs Outcast vs Rick Mad vs Burn Out would decide who would hold Gravedigger's vacated Title.

    Kyle Steel: Speaking of Logan, you and him were starting to have a little romance. Let's talk about that.

    Shannan Lerch: Let's not.

    Kyle Steel: Anyway, we have two matches to show you from Helloween. The Match of the Year, if I do say so myself, the Defman vs PC Cradle rematch for the Hardcore Title. This took place in a creation called "The Dome". And the World Title match. Let's see those.

  • 10/26/03 - Helloween - Defman vs PC Cradle
  • Zach Davis: Now its time Shannan…

    Shannan Lerch: I hope you brought your umbrella, Zach, because its gonna be raining blood in here.

    The dome hangs ominously over the ring. There are a lot of WCF technicians around the ringside area, preparing themselves to set the Dome up. There are multiple technicians in the ring, removing the ring ropes. In the ropes place, they put barbed wire…lots of barbed wire. The dome above begins to descend slowly, and the crowd cheer loudly.

    Zach Davis: Here it comes…

    Shannan Lerch: To quote a large Oklahoman announcer, this thing is custom built for injury.

    Zach Davis: This is what it’s come down to.

    The dome lowers around the ring, and the technicians check the dome over, making sure that there is no way to escape. The camera pans out and we see a huge wide shot of the dome. We see shots of the fan’s faces, who are all in awe of the thing they see surrounding the ring. The technicians check that the weapons Defman requested are underneath the ring, and they check the barbed wire that Cradle requested is safely secured.

    Shannan Lerch: This is gonna be sick. I’m not sure if I can watch this Zach.

    Zach Davis: You know, for once I agree with you.

    The dome is all set up.

    Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentleman, performing live, playing PC Cradle to the ring, give it up for STATIC-X!!!

    The crowd cheer loudly as Wayne Static screams into the microphone. The camera zooms in on the staging area, next to the entrance way.

    Wayne Static: GET TO THE GONE! UNDER THE GUN! DROP IN, DROP OUT! GET TO THE GONE!

    As they start the verse, PC Cradle parts the curtains, roaring to the crowd. He raises his arms, and walks over to the staging area where Static X are playing. He jumps onto the stage, head banging to the music.

    Wayne Static: THE STATIC! THE METAL! THE HELL! GET TO IT! SENSATION!

    PC Cradle hops off the stage, walking down towards the ring, still roaring to the song. The crowd sing along, and a small moshpit opens up in front of the barricades by the stage. Cradle is going crazy until he stands 2 feet away from the dome entranceway. He looks from the bottom to the top and smirks, before running in, rolling under the bottom string of barbed wire. He gets in the ring, signalling to the crowd. He shouts with the music, and the song finishes.

    Zach Davis: Well, it appears your brother has more faith in PC Cradle than anyone else.

    Shannan Lerch: Hey, if Seth thinks Cradle can survive this match, then I believe him. He might not be the best brother in the world, but he knows this business, and he recognises talent when he see’s it.

    Suddenly the arena goes black, and the crowd screams with excitement. A blue neon light shines down on the entrance way, and suddenly the whole arena is rocked with ear splitting explosions.

    The voices, the voices, the voices, the VOICES!!

    The voices, they take control, The voices, destroy your soul, The voices, they kill us all, The voices, why wont they fall?

    THE VOICES!!!

    Defman steps through the curtain and his eyes are fixed on the dome.

    Zach Davis: Well, normally Defman can be seen murmuring to himself, but those stone cold eyes scream one thing: focus. This guy isn’t mentally stable, but he’s certainly not stupid.

    Shannan Lerch: I’m actually surprised that some fans still cheer for him, after everything he’s done.

    Kyle Steel: Eh, people are sadistic these days... especially these two.

    Defman begins slowly making his way down the ramp. The hairs on the back of everyone’s necks stand on end as Defman’s electric, icy cold presence can be felt by all. The crowd continue to scream, and Defman stops at the entrance of the dome. He looks down on a technician who is making final adjustments to the Dome. The technician does not notice Defman there, and Defman begins to laugh evilly. The technician stands up slowly, and turns, staring into the cold eyes of Defman. Just as the man tries to run, Defman grabs his by his throat. Defman grabs hold of one of the mans legs and twists it to a totally un-natural angle. The man screams in pain, and we can see a bulge in the leg of his trousers where the bone has broken the skin. The man lies on the floor screaming. Defman goes back to the entrance of the Dome. He looks up and around it, as Cradle stands, shouting at Defman, trying to get him in the ring. Defman grins at Cradle, walking up the steel steps. He wraps his hands around the barbed wire, blood already streaming from tiny barbed wire wounds. He steps over the ropes, and Cradle is stood in the corner, crouched down, looking over at Defman.

    Zach Davis: Well these two have exceeded the expectations of all, but I don’t think anyone expected it to come to this.

    Shannan Lerch: I agree Zach, this thing has already gone too far, and these two are set to push it further than any boundary.

    Defmans music stops and the lights come back on. Defman is stood up straight, and he looks at Cradle, with a sickeningly twisted grin on his face. Cradle sits crouched in the corner, and he returns the sick, mentally un-stable smile to Defman. The crowd are roaring loudly, and the bell rings.

    DING DING!

    Kyle Steel: It’s on!

    PC Cradle instantly runs at Defman, shoving him back into the corner. He drills his shoulder into Defmans gut, but Defman raises his knee to Cradles face. Cradle falls back, but jumps to his feet quickly, running at Defman again. Defman lifts his foot, giving Cradle a big boot. Again, Cradle pops back up, this time going for Defmans throat. He launches with a big lariat, but hardly moves the big man. Again, Cradle runs, hitting another lariat, with little effect. The third time he tries, Defman scoops him up, slamming him to the mat with a dirtroad slam. Cradle lays flat, Defman runs and attempts a leg drop. Cradle moves, quickly on Defman.

    Zach Davis: If Cradle can keep him off his feet, he’s got a good chance!

    Cradle punches Defman hard in the face, and then begins stomping him whilst he’s down. He jumps in the air, performing a jumping elbow drop, and his elbow crashes down onto Defmans chest. Cradle goes for another, but this time Defman moves. Cradle quickly hops back to his feet, and Defman clotheslines him right in the throat. Blood shoots out of Cradles mouth as he hits the mat.

    Shannan Lerch: My god, he might have just caved Cradles neck in!

    Cradle lies on his side, and spits a big gob of blood onto the mat. Defman grabs Cradle, hooking his head between Defmans legs. Defman lifts him up in a powerbomb position, carrying Cradle to the barbed wire. Just as he tries to drop him, Cradle grabs his head, and as Cradle falls to the outside, he brings Defmans neck down on the barbed wire hard!

    Shannan Lerch: That was like an over the wire X-Factor!

    Kyle Steel: He nearly decapitated Defman!

    Defman falls back, clutching his throat, which has 6 small trails of blood that reach his chest. Cradle searches under the ring, finding a baseball bat which looks to be covered in some sort of cloth. Cradle pulls out a lighter, setting the baseball bat on fire! He rolls back into the ring, and swings the bat hard at Defman. Defman catches the bat mid-swing, his hands being engulfed by flame. He continues to hold it as the flames burn at his hands. He grins at Cradle, and Cradle delivers 3 stiff boots to Defman stomach. Defman lets go of the bat, and Cradle swings it again. Defman ducks the swings, turning and hitting a devastating lariat to Cradles neck again. The bat continues to burn in the ring, as Defman steps tot his feet. Defman takes the flaming bat, and he lights Cradles shirt and chest on fire! Cradle lies burning, as he tries to pat the flames out. Defman goes to the top rope, hitting a huge top rope splash onto the burning Cradle, extinguishing the fires instantly. Defman stands, looking out at the crowd, grinning menacingly.

    Shannan Lerch: Well, this looks to be over in a hurry.

    Cradle starts moving, climbing to his feet. Defman turns, and receives a Roaring Elbow to the jaw! This stuns Defman who steps back. Cradle hits another roaring elbow, and Defman is standing against the barbed wire. Cradle runs at Defman, but Defman sidesteps, and Cradle hits the barbed wire hard, ripping the wire from its roped position! Cradle crashes to the floor below, his body wrapped in barbed wire. He lies in the barbed wire, and Defman stands in the ring, laughing manically at Cradles mangled form. Suddenly, again, Cradle gets to his knee. He looks up at Defman smiling, and he licks a large gob of blood off of his arm. Defman stops laughing, but doesn’t look too concerned, as he hops out of the ring. He grabs Cradle’s head and grates it against the steel mesh of the dome. Cradles skin on his head starts to rip, and blood flows down his face. Defman wipes some blood off of Cradles face and licks it, before grinning and roaring loudly! Defman rolls Cradle into the ring and goes for a cover…

    ONE…

    TWO…

    Cradle kicks out quickly after the two.

    Kyle Steel: They should really thing about stopping this, Defman is gonna kill Cradle!

    Zach Davis: Don’t speak so soon!

    Cradle climbs slowly to his feet, and his face is covered in blood. Defman knees him in the stomach, and whips him out of the ring, into the wall of the dome. Cradle drops to his knees, and Defman runs at him, attempting to boot him in the face. Cradle moves at the last second, and he hooks Defmans leg and neck, hitting a capture suplex out on the mats!

    Zach Davis: Just look at the strength and leverage of Cradle!

    Cradle is down on his knees, and uses the ring post from the outside to pull himself up. He goes under the ring, and emerges with a table. But taped to the table are light bulb tubes!

    Kyle Steel: What the heck is that!?

    Cradle sets the table up so that it is over the barbed wire on the floor, and he rolls Defman back into the ring. Cradle moves Defman over to the side of the ring which now has no ropes, and has the light tube table set up next to it. He grabs Defmans hair, kneeing him in the jaw, and then Cradle puts Defman on his shoulders in a Samoan drop position. He stands close to the edge of the ring, and then carries Defman hard onto his head and neck, through the light tube table, onto the barbed wire!

    Zach Davis: Oh my GOD! Cradle just hit the Death Valley Driver on Defman, from the ring, through the lightbulb tube table, onto the barbed wire, to the floor!

    Shannan Lerch: I wouldn’t be shocked if Defman doesn’t get up from that.

    Cradle roles Defman into the ring, dragging barbed wire behind him. He goes for a cover…

    ONE…

    TW…

    Defman kicks out.

    Cradle is again on his knees. His legs are tangled in barbed wire, and his calf muscles are cut deep. Defmans body lies in the ring, motionless. Defmans looks like a big mass of blood! Cradle, breathing heavily, gets to his feet. Defman slowly begins to move!

    Zach Davis: Sweet Jesus, this is going too far.

    Shannan Lerch: I can’t watch this anymore, I’m sorry Zach and Kyle.

    Shannan Lerch leaves the announcers position, quickly moving backstage.

    Zach Davis: Well, I honestly don’t blame Shannan for leaving.

    Kyle Steel: Me neither... I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of fans have tuned out from Helloween because of this...

    Defman stands grinning, and he still has barbed wire clinging to his skin. He rips the barbs out, and we get a good shot of his head and back area, which looks like a human wall of blood. He climbs back into the ring, and grabs Cradle, setting him up for a powerbomb. Again, he goes to the barbed wire ropes, but this time, he hits the powerbomb! Cradles body crashes through the barbed wire, again, destroying the barbed rope set up. Cradle convulses on the floor, rolling into his front on the barbed wire. He has his eyes shut, and his teeth gritted, as he lies breathing heavily.

    Zach Davis: Ladies and Gentlemen, if you can believe this, PC Cradle has just been powerbombed through multiple strands of barbed wire, and he is still breathing!

    Defman covers Cradle.

    ONE…

    TWO…

    THREE!

    Kyle Steel: Now the ref will start the ten count…


    One…
    Two…
    Three…
    Four…

    Cradle rolls to his stomach, and begins to stand up.

    Zach Davis: The sickness continues…

    Defman doesn’t give him time to recuperate, and grabs Cradle by his hair. He pulls Cradle to his feet, and clotheslines him back down. Defman goes outside, and pulls 3 chairs and a table from underneath the ring. He stomps Cradle in the ring, and then on the outside, sets the table up. He places the three steel chairs, stacked on top of the table. Grabbing Cradle, Defman sits perched on the top turnbuckle, facing the outside. Defman hooks Cradle’s head again, between his legs, and lifts him so that Defman has Cradle in a piledriver position on the second turnbuckle, facing the outside of the ring and the table!

    Zach Davis: No way, he can’t do this…

    Defman jumps piledriving Cradle through the table and chairs to the floor below!

    Kyle Steel: That’s it, Cradles dead.

    Defman, again, grabs the limp Cradle, throwing him back into the ring.

    Zach Davis: Just pin him, end this now!

    Defman, grinning, pin’s Cradle in the middle of the ring.

    ONE…

    TWO…

    THREE!

    The ten count starts again

    One…
    Two…
    Three…
    Four…
    Five…

    Cradle again rolls to his stomach and begins to stand.

    Cradles up! The crowd cheer loudly.

    Zach Davis: What!? How is Cradle still moving?!

    Defmans crimson face turns angry, and he hooks Cradle into a pumphandle slam position. Defman holds Cradle on his shoulder, but Cradle wriggles free, and superkicks the back of Defmans head. Defman falls forward like a chopped down tree, crashing face first onto the mat, breaking his nose. Cradle leans on the barbed wire for a couple of seconds, before dropping an elbow onto Defman. He lifts Defman up, and grabs him round the waist. He arches back, bouncing Defmans head of the mat with a sickening German Suplex. He lifts him up again, hitting a second German. He lifts him up once, more, but this time, Cradle hits the German Suplex onto one of the walls of barbed wire! Defman crashes through the barbed wire, and drops to the floor on the outside. Cradle lies on his stomach in the ring, and both men are motionless.

    Kyle Steel: How far are these two men going to push this!!!?

    Defman lays motionless in the wire, and Cradle climbs the turnbuckle. He launches off, hitting an ugly elbow drop onto Defman in the barbed wire! Both men lay motionless next to each other, and the only distinguishing feature of both is simply the size difference. Suddenly, at the same time, the two bloody warriors begin to move! Cradle uses the side of the dome to lift himself up, and Defman uses the apron. Defman turns, punching Cradle in the face, sending blood flicking everywhere. Cradle returns the punch, and the two men exchange rights on the outside. Defman ducks Cradles punch and knees him in the stomach. Cradle leans against the wall of the Dome, and Defman walks away a few feet, before running at Cradle. Defman spears Cradle through the wall of the Dome, to the outside!

    Zach Davis: Nothing can contain these two! They checked to make sure that these two men couldn’t escape, but the strength of Defman is un-paralleled!

    Defman grabs Cradle by the neck, dragging him up the entranceway. He lays him by the entrance to the arena, and pulls a blade from his pocket.

    Kyle Steel: He can’t do this…

    Defman kneels over Cradle, and we see his arm rising up and down, up and down, in the direction of Cradle’s face. The camera moves in, and we see Defman grinning widely as he slashes the blade across Cradle’s forehead and cheeks! Cradles face bleeds profusely, and a pool of blood collects under Cradles head.

    Zach Davis: Cradle was right! This match is the WCF Horror Movie!

    Defman throws the blade and stands over Cradle’s body. Cradle looks dead, his face a mess of skin and blood. The camera zooms in on Defmans face and he is grinning manically. His face drops to an angry snarl, as the camera pans out again and we see Cradle using Defmans leg to lift himself up.

    Zach Davis: Cradle now, battling to his feet!

    Defman kicks Cradle in the chest, and Cradle drops back so he’s down on his knees. Defman grabs the back of Cradles head and brings his knee hard into Cradle face. Cradle spits a tooth out onto the floor. Defman grabs Cradle by his arm, and Irish whips him into the Static X drum kit! Cradle crashes into the instrument, disappearing behind it. Defman lumbers towards him, and Cradle appears, quickly wrapping 2 sharp guitar strings around Defmans neck!

    Kyle Steel: Look at those strings! There cutting into Defmans throat!

    Cradle sits on Defmans lower back in a camel clutch position, and pulls back with the strings on his neck. Defmans eyes go bloodshot red and his teeth grit. Cradle roars loudly, and eventually lets Defmans head drop forward, bouncing off the wooden stage. Cradle goes over to the destroyed drum kit, grabbing a symbol. Cradle rolls Defman over, and we can see blood seeping from the string wounds on his neck. Cradle pushes the drum symbol into one of the cuts, and pushes down.

    Zach Davis: Dammit, Cradle’s trying to cut Defmans own head off! There’s a line, and these two spat up blood on it before crossing it!

    Cradle throws the symbol, and it crashes to the concrete below the stage. Defmans neck and throat are bleeding profusely, and his coughs up more thick blood. Cradle spits on Defmans body, and begins laying boots into him. Defman convulses with each kick, but begins to get to his feet. Cradle tries to kick him down, but Defman keeps coming. Defman stands straight, looking down on Cradle. Cradle doesn’t back down and he says something…

    PC Cradle: You wanna do it? Then fucking do it! Kill me you son of a bitch!

    Defman looks away for a second, and quickly turns, hitting a lariat into Cradles neck again. Defman disappears backstage for a second, and re-appears holding some sort of metal contraption. Defman hooks the contraption to a cable that holds a big Helloween banner, and the contraption hangs. As we move closer, we can see that the contraption is a rack of sharp hooks!

    Zach Davis: Oh no…no he can’t…

    Defman grins manically, and begins pushing the sharp hooks through the top of Cradle back and shoulders. Defman maintains the grin, and we can even hear the sick blood curdling sound of Defman laughing. Defman pushes eight of the large sharp hooks into Cradles back, and he moves off to a winch by the stage. He pushes the winch button, and Cradle slowly begins rising up! The skin on his back stretches as Cradles feet lift off the floor!

    Kyle Steel: No! Dammit, no! I know we’re not supposed to talk about other company’s, but the same thing happened 2 months ago at CZW Redefined, and now its happening again! Cradles bloody body is hanging from those hooks and chains!

    Defman walks over to Cradles body, which hangs about 2 feet above the stage. He laughs and begins punching Cradles body, making it swing.

    Zach Davis: Cradle is being used as a punching bag!

    Cradles back bleeds and his blood drips to the floor below. Defman grabs Cradles hanging body in a bearhug, and rips it from the hooks, slamming it to the floor!

    Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!

    Zach Davis: Cradle just got ripped from those hooks, and bearhug slammed on the wooden stage!!

    Cradles body lies on the stage, some of the hooks still embedded into his back. Defmans face is totally remorseless, as he looks down at Cradles bloody body. The crowd are silent as Cradle doesn’t move…

    Kyle Steel: Ladies and gentlemen…I believe Cradle…could be gone…

    Defman walks off from the stage and stands at the top of the ramp, roaring loudly. The camera looks over Defmans shoulder, and we can see Cradle…moving! Cradle is back on his feet, though still very wobbly!

    Zach Davis: Dammit! Defman can’t keep Cradle down!

    Defman turns and looks at Cradle, who is now crouched down on the stage. He has a smile on his face. Defmans face becomes twisted and angry, as he runs at Cradle. Cradle ducks at the last second, and backdrops Defman off of the stage! But Defman doesn’t land on the concrete, and he crashes through a glass coffin below the stage that is filled with thousands of thumbtacks!

    Crowd: Dub C F! DUB C F! DUB C F!

    Defman convulses as his body is turned into a pin cushion. Glass and thumbtacks stick into Defmans skin, as he lies amongst the mess. Cradle stands on the edge of the stage, looking down at Defmans body.

    Kyle Steel: Sweet Jesus! This match belongs in Japan!

    Cradle knows that Defman is far from finished, and quickly hops off the stage. He grabs Defmans hair and slams the back of his head into the side of the stage repeatedly. Defmans blood stains the side of the stage, and Cradle begins to bring Defman back to the ring. Defman elbows Cradle in the stomach twice, and he hits a backdrop-powerbomb on the concrete! Cradle lays in the entrance way, his blood staining the floor. Defman is up on his feet. Defman goes back to the ring, and searches underneath it, bringing out a big thick chain. He puts the chain round Cradles neck in a noose position, and Defman begins to climb the dome, carrying the other end of the chain. Cradle starts to stir in the entranceway, and Defman reaches the top. Defman pulls back hard on the chain, and Cradle suddenly rises off his feet!

    Zach Davis: He’s hanging Cradle with that chain!

    He keeps pulling, and stops when Cradles feet are about 2 metres from the floor. Cradle hangs, struggling to keep his breath. Defman laughs loudly as Cradle struggles, but Cradle manages to turn, and grabs hold of the dome. He pulls himself up to the top, and Defman wraps the chain around Cradles neck, choking him. Cradles crimson mask of a face splutters blood everywhere, and Defmans face is in a twisted manic grin. He lets Cradle go, and Defman signals to the crowd that PC Cradle is dead.

    Kyle Steel: Well…I don’t know what to say…

    Suddenly, Cradles arm begins to move. Defman does not notice, and on spaghetti legs, Cradle rises to his feet. Defman turns and see’s Cradle standing, and runs at him. We can hear the sound of links to the roof snapping as Cradle ducks Defmans clothesline, but Defman turns again and clothesline the back of Cradles head with his other arm. Cradle lays on the roof of the dome, and Defman walks over to the outer edge. He circles around the roof, looking for something. Eventually, he finds what he’s looking for. He pulls what everyone assumed was just a lighting box onto the roof, and he opens it, pulling out a huge coil of razor wire!

    Zach Davis: Razor wire! We go from barbed wire to razor wire! If it’s possible, this is going to get even bloodier!

    Defman walks towards Cradle, and lays the razor wire in a thick coil. Defman grabs Cradle, and presses him above his head!

    Zach Davis: Defman could be using the last of his strength here!

    Defman drops Cradle onto his shoulder, and drops forward, hitting a powerslam onto the razor wire! The razor wire cuts the bottom of Cradles back open deeply, and snags on Defmans arm. The camera zooms into Defmans arm, as he yanks the razor wire free, taking chunks of flesh with it. Defman reaches down and slowly begins to remove the razor wire from Cradles back. He throws the razor wire over the edge of the Dome. Defman pulls Cradle to his feet. Cradle knees Defman in the gut, pulling him over to the side of the dome which has the announcers table below it. Without thinking twice, Cradle grabs Defman by the top of his trousers and throws him from the roof! Defman crashes through the announcers table, and Zach Davis’ headset is dis-connected. Cradle stands on the roof, looking down emotionlessly on Defmans bloody body, lying amongst the mess of monitors, wood and microphones below. Defmans body twitches on the floor, and the camera shows a shot of Cradle stood on the edge of the dome. A few seconds pass, and we see Cradle shrug, and he takes to steps towards the edge, launching off, dropping a sickening elbow onto Defmans body from the roof of the Dome!

    Kyle Steel: What the hell!? These two are literally going to kill one another to win this match! This is so much more than that hardcore title!

    Defman begins to move again, grabbing the head of Cradle, who seemingly took the worst of the fall. Defman lifts Cradle to his feet, and they begin once again exchanging rights. The crowd roar in appreciation of these two men. Defman pie faces Cradle into the cage. Defman grabs Cradle by the back of the head, and pushes his face into the side of the Dome! Still grating Cradles head, Defman begins to push Cradles face all the way around the perimeter of the Dome! He circles his way round to the entrance, and they end up back in the ring. The ring mat is stained red, and both men look like walking corpses. Both men continue to fight, and Cradle kicks Defman low, hooking his arms. Cradle lifts Defman up vertically, and drops Defman on his head!

    Zach Davis: Cradle-arm DDT! Cradle-arm DDT! This thing is over!

    Cradle drops onto Defman, pinning him.

    ONE…

    TWO…

    THREE!!!

    Zach Davis: Well that’s the pinfall, now all the referee has to do is count the 10 count on Defman, and we got a winner!

    One…
    Two…
    Three…
    Four…
    Five…
    Six…
    Sev…

    Defman sits up, breaking the count. Cradle boots him in the chest, but Defman doesn’t move. Cradle tries it again, but Defman grabs his foot. Defman pulls Cradle to him, and hits the Stop & Drop!

    Kyle Steel: That could be it! Defman hit the Stop & Drop!

    Defman pins Cradle…

    ONE!

    TWO!

    THREE!

    The referee begins the ten count again, this time for Cradle.

    One…
    Two…
    Three...
    Four…
    Five…
    Six…
    Seven…
    Eig…

    Cradle rolls to his stomach, pushing himself up.

    Zach Davis: Ladies and Gentlemen, in all my years as a ring announcer, I’ve never had a problem calling a match…but this…this is insanity!

    Defman delivers a hard boot to the stomach of Cradle, flipping him back over. Defman exits the ring, and searches under the ring again. Defman pulls out a large wooden board, wrapped in barbed wire!

    Kyle Steel: Hey, I’ve seen those before! Those are the C4 exploding boards that they use in Japan!

    Defman slides the board into the ring, and then pulls a table from under the ring. Defman walks to Cradle and boots him a couple of times, keeping him down. Defman then sets up the table, and lays the barbed wire exploding board on top of it! Defman stalks Cradle waiting for him to get to his feet. Defman smiles and boots Cradle in the stomach, before lifting him up in the air, facing the C4 exploding table!

    Zach Davis: Cradles about to take his last ride!

    With that, Defman extends his arms fully, and he hits the Last Ride on Cradle through the C4 table! There is an almighty BOOM as Cradles body crashes through the table, exploding on impact! Smoke rises from the wreckage, and Defman stands back, a frighteningly blank expression across his face. Defman quickly walks over, and, ignoring the barbed wire, covers Cradle.

    ONE…

    TWO…

    THREE!

    Kyle Steel: Defman got another 3 here. Is there any point in doing the ten count?

    The referee shouts the numbers, and the crowd shout along with him…

    One…
    Two…
    Three…
    Four…
    Five…
    Six…
    Seven…
    Eight…
    Ni…

    Cradle uses the turnbuckle and pulls himself up!

    Zach Davis: What does it take!? This match could go forever!

    Cradles bloody body stands, and Defman quickly runs, hitting a big boot to Cradles face. Defman drops a leg over the back of Cradles neck, and Cradle falls flat on the mat. Cradle starts to push himself up again, and Defman grabs his hair. Lifting him to his feet, Defman stands Cradle leaning against the remaining barbed wire. Without warning, Defman starts throwing devastating rights and lefts into Cradles rib and gut area.

    Kyle Steel: Defman is slowly picking Cradle apart…how is Cradle still alive after what Defman’s done!

    PC Cradles mouth explodes blood, and it hits Defmans chest. Defman roars like a bear and he begins choking Cradle. Cradle swallows large amounts of blood, until eventually Defman lets him go, and Cradle crashes to his hands and knees, blood dribbling from his mouth. Again, slowly, Cradle begins to climb to his feet. Defman speaks in a horse, loud, evil voice…

    Defman: Give it up Cradle! You’re not leaving this arena alive! Accept your fate, meet your maker, AND FUCKING DIE!

    Defman grabs Cradle round the waist from behind, and German Suplex’s him through the ring mat! Cradle disappears down a dark hole in the ring.

    Zach Davis: Oh my god…..

    Defman looks to the ceiling, and roars, looking more like a monster than ever before.

    Kyle Steel: Its over everybody…there’s no need for pinfalls or 10 counts, Cradle is gone.

    As Defman grins manically to the crowd, and after a few seconds, a bloody hand appears out of the hole! Then another! The top of PC Cradle’s crimson head appears, and he drags himself out of the hole.

    Zach Davis: No Cradle! Stay down, play dead, just end this match!

    Cradle stands wearily, and Defman’s face is totally emotionless. He stares at Cradle, who stands shaking in front of him. Cradles hand slowly raises, and he points his middle finger at Defman.

    Kyle Steel: I hope you're happy Seth Lerch! These two will never be the same after this!

    Defman grins, and Cradle and Defman lock up in the centre of the ring. Defman lifts Cradle off of his feet, and Cradle slips down behind him. Defman turns, and Cradle punches him in the jaw. Defman Is stunned, and Cradle hits another right hand on him. Defman looks very wobbly, and Cradle turns 360 degrees, before ramming his elbow into Defmans face with a devastating roaring elbow! Defman crashes to the mat, and Cradle looks to be building his adrenaline. He goes to the outside, dragging another table from under the ring. Cradle is carrying two bottles, and after setting up the table, he begins to cover it in fluid from the bottles.

    Zach Davis: My god...is that...is that gasoline!?

    Cradle lights a pack of matches and drops them on the table, instantly igniting it. Black smoke rises to the roof of the arena, and Cradle turns to Defman, who has just got back to his feet. Cradle grabs Defman, putting his head between Cradles legs.

    Kyle Steel: No way, he can’t do this! He isn’t strong enough!

    In an amazing display of strength, Cradle scoops Defman up into a powerbomb position. Cradle hooks one arm over Defmans chest, and falls forward. Defmans body crashes through the flaming table!

    Zach Davis: A Cradle-bomb! A Cradlebomb through the flaming table!

    Cradle falls back into a sitting position, as he watches the flames burning. Defman can’t be seen, and as the flames disappear, we realise that Defmans body isn’t anywhere to be seen! Cradle stands, looking around the broken table. Suddenly, from behind, Defman grabs Cradle, and runs to the final wall of Barbed Wire, hitting the Fading Darkness onto it! Both men crash to the floor, entangled in barbed wire! Neither man moves, Cradles body bleeding heavily. Defmans back and his shoulders have turned a sickening pink color from the burns suffered from the flaming table. Both men lay motionless.

    Kyle Steel: This is too much…

    The referee goes over and checks the pulse’s of both men. He signals that they are both alive, and he whispers to the ring announcer.

    Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen…the referee has just informed me that both men are still breathing, and the match WILL continue!

    Zach Davis: WHAT!? How? How is this going to continue! Neither man is mov…

    Once again, in stereo, Defman and Cradle get to their feet. The ring is now just a large square of canvas stained red with blood and with a huge hole in it. Both men role into the ring, and again lay motionless on the canvas…

    Kyle Steel: Ah.. this match is incredible...

    Defman slowly begins to stir, but Cradle’s body remains motionless. Defman struggles to his feet, and we see a shot of his arms and back, which have barbed wire, thumbtacks, pieces of wood and glass all stuck into it. Defman rolls into the ring, dragging Cradle by his hair up to his feet. Defman hooks Cradles head and piledrives him in the centre of the ring! Defman doesn’t let go, and lifts him up again, hitting a second equally devastating piledriver! Defman again holds on, but instead of piledriving Cradle, he scoops him up, running towards the hole in the ring! Defman releases Cradle, and we see his body disappear into the hole. A huge gasp can be heard by the crowd, and Defman signals the end by running his hand across his bloody, cut up throat. We don’t see Cradle appear this time, and Defman reaches into the hole, pulling Cradles limp form onto the mat. Defman grabs Cradle, and hits the Stop and Drop in the ring! Defman covers Cradle…

    ONE…

    TWO…

    THREE!

    The referee begins the 10 count…

    One…
    Two…
    Three…
    Four…
    Five…
    Six…
    Seven…
    Eight…
    Nine…
    Ten!!!!

    The bell rings!

    Zach Davis: Defman! Defman! Defman wins!

    Ring announcer: The winner of this match, and NEW WCF HARDCORE CHAMPION…..DEFMAN!!!!!!!!

    Defman holds the belt high, roaring to the crowd. The referees help Cradle to his feet, and Cradle regains consciousness. Cradle drops out of the ropeless red ring, and makes his way up the ramp, holding his back and stomach. He turns to see Defman with a wide grin, looking at Cradle. Cradle returns the smile before disappearing backstage.

    Zach Davis: Well I think that however much these two hate each other, the respect level must be through the roof!

    Defman leaves the ringside area with his title, as the technicians prepare the ring for the next match.

  • 10/26/03 - Helloween - Burn Out vs Rick Mad vs Outcast vs Logan vs Madd Dogg
  • Motorcycle revving up sound plays, and Burn Out comes out on a motorcycle, goes around the ring, gets off the bike, and climbs in.

    The heavy part of Metallica's One plays, and a green light fills the arena. Rick Mad steps out to booing. He walks to the ring slowly, rolls in and raises his arms in the middle as green pyro blasts from the turnbuckles. The lights go back to normal as the music stops.

    'God of Thunder' hits and the crowd cheers. Outcast walks out in black jeans. He goes to the ring with his eyes fixed on the ring. Nothing else phases him. He slides in and raises his hands.

    "Not Falling" by Mudvayne blasts out over the PA system. Logan slowly passes his way through the curtains letting them slide off his body and fall behind him. Logan's body is drenched in water causing drops of water to fall of him as he moves down the ramp. Every now and then Logan yells at the booing crowd before rolling inside the ring. Once inside the ring Logan paces around untill his music cuts.

    The arena goes dark as the bass line of Aint No Sunshine cuts in. The words "It is dark, and hell is hot" fill the arena as the stage explodes. Low red lighting barely illuminates the stage as Dogg walks out. From right to left, mini pyro showers go off in order, slowly. Each covering Dogg with golden sparks. Then the stage explodes again and Dogg walks down to the ring.

    Zach Davis: Five of the biggest stars of WCF... One match.

    Shannan Lerch: And it's on...

    The bell rings.

    Kyle Steel: Now.

    Logan and Rick immediately Clothesline Outcast and Burn Out over the top rope, leaving only Madd Dogg in the ring. They then run at him, and begin kicking him into the corner.

    Zach Davis: Ugh, I was afraid of this..

    Shannan Lerch: If anyone can take them, it's Dogg.

    And just as Shannan predicted, Dogg soon hits a Double Clothesline on both men, sending them down. Burn Out and Outcast are back in the ring by now. Burn Out attacks Mad while Outcast and Dogg work over Logan. Burn Out picks Mad up and hits a Savate Kick, sending him down. Meanwhile, Outcast and Dogg pick Logan up, but Logan starts to fight back, punching at both. He sends Outcast down with a Clothesline, and goes to hit Dogg with one too, but Dogg ducks. Dogg hits a Full Nelson Slam. He's about to pin Logan, but Burn Out grabs him from behind and rolls him up. The ref counts.. one, two.. no.

    Kyle Steel: Now's a good time to point out the rules of the match. It's actually first pinfall wins, not elimination.. so it's anyone's game.

    Dogg stands up quickly, and starts punching Burn Out into a corner. Rick Mad is up, and him and Logan pick up Outcast, and hit a Double Snap Suplex. Logan locks in the Sharpshooter on Outcast, while Rick Mad locks in the Crossface!

    Zach Davis: If he gave up, I wonder which one would get the Title?

    It doesn't matter, as Dogg notices the possible ending of the match, and kicks both men off. Burn Out again attacks him from behind, and hits a Saving Grace meneuver. He then stomps on Dogg repeatedly, and locks in an Arm Bar. Mad and Logan are back up and attacking Outcast, but all of a sudden he fights back and Clotheslines them both over the top rope! All three men go spilling out, leaving only Burn Out and Dogg in the ring. Dogg has just reached the ropes, and Burn Out released the Arm Bar. He picks Dogg up and gets him in position for the Outcast Blast, but Dogg elbows him in the head, and then Powerbombs him into the turnbuckle!

    Shannan Lerch: Burn Out almost had the win if he'd have hit the Outcast Blast.

    Kyle Steel: Speaking of Outcast... he's holding his own against Mad and Logan.

    Mad is resting on a guardrail while Outcast is slamming Logan's head on the ring. He then goes to throw Logan onto the steel steps, but Logan reverses it and throws Outcast into them instead. The two men begin stomping on Outcast. Mad throws him to Logan, who hits a Snake Eyes on the guardrail! They pick him up, and roll him in the ring. Logan goes to pin... One.. two.. No, Outcast kicks out. Dogg runs at Logan and hits a Running Bulldog, sending him down to the mat. He then goes for an Elbow Drop, but Logan rolls away. Both men stand up and Dogg runs at him again, but this time Logan hits a Belly to Belly Suplex!

    Zach Davis: Dogg vs Logan... quite the interesting fight.

    Logan quickly pins Dogg.

    One..

    Two...

    Burn Out dives onto Logan, breaking up the pinfall. Logan and Burn Out stand up quickly. Logan runs at Burn Out and is met with an Arm Drag. He gets up, runs at Burn Out again, and Burn Out grabs his throat. He picks him up... Chokeslam! Burn Out quickly drops and pins Logan.

    One!

    Two!

    Shannan Lerch: Burn Out could have it!

    No! Logan kicks out. Burn Out picks him up, but he ducks a punch, goes behind him, and hits an Atomic Whip, throwing Burn Out out of the ring. Dogg is back up, and grabs Logan, whipping him to the ropes, and follows up with a One Legged Spinebuster! Both Madd Dogg and Outcast begin stomping on Logan. A voice calls Outcast's name, and he turns around. Rick Mad is sitting on top of the turnbuckle, and he flies off and executes a Flying Hurricanrana on Outcast! Outcast is sent out of the ring as well, landing on Burn Out. He grabs Dogg from behind, and executes a German Suplex. Mad then runs to the ropes opposite Outcast and Burn Out, runs back at them, and flips over the top rope, landing on top of both of them! All three men lay outside the ring, not moving.

    Kyle Steel: Just Logan and Dogg left in the ring now.

    Logan stands up slowly, and sees Dogg laying on the canvas. He grabs his legs, pulls him to the middle of the ring, and applies a LoganShooter!

    Zach Davis: This could be the end, let's see if Dogg taps...

    Dogg raises his arm... but doesn't tap. He doesn't even scream, but there is an unmistakable look of pain on his face. Logan, however, is screaming "COME ON, TAP!" at the top of his lungs. Dogg raises his arm again.. lowers it.. but doesn't tap. He makes an attempt to crawl to the ropes, to get out of the submission... And he makes it. The ref forces Logan to let go, which he does after a few seconds of making Dogg remain in pain. He picks Dogg up, and backs up for a Superkick... Dogg catches the foot, spins him around, and hits the Dogg Pound!

    Zach Davis: It's over!

    Shannan Lerch: NO! Logan can kick out!

    Dogg pins, quickly.

    One.

    Two.

    Two point five.

    Two point nine.

    KICKOUT!

    Shannan Lerch: Told you so.

    Logan somehow, somewhere, found the strength to kick out of the Dogg Pound. Dogg pulls Logan to the middle of the ring, and locks in the Trampling Clutch.

    Kyle Steel: I don't know how long Logan can keep from tapping, that's a dangerous move.

    Logan attempts to crawl to the ropes as well, trying anything to get out of the move. Dogg's constant stomping makes it incredibly hard, however, and it looks like Logan's about to pass out... His eyes go shut, and he stops movement. Dogg releases the move, and the ref holds Logan's arm up. It falls. He holds the arm up again, and again, it falls.

    Zach Davis: I don't remember the last time we had someone pass out from pain and end up losing that way.. wow.

    The ref raises Logan's arm again... but Logan doesn't let it drop! Madd Dogg is outraged, and grabs Logan's leg again, about to put him back in the Trampling Clutch. Logan kicks him away, stands up, and executes the Impact Style! In one swift motion, he hits the Connector as well!

    Shannan Lerch: DONE!

    Logan quickly pins Dogg, hooking the leg.

    ONE!

    TWO!

    TWO AND A HALF!

    TWO AND.. OH, I'M JUST ADDING SUSPENSE!

    THREE!

    The bell rings, and Not Falling plays. Logan rolls over, resting on the mat a bit, and Dogg rolls out of the ring. Logan stands up, slowly, and is handed the World Title. Rick Mad rolls into the ring and raises Logan's arm in the air. Suddenly, Not Falling changes into Changes by the Deftones.

    Kyle Steel: Eh oh.

    Gravedigger himself comes walking out from the back, with an emotionless look on his face. Logan instructs Mad to get out of the ring, saying he can handle things himself. Mad does so. Gravedigger rolls into the ring, and walks right up to Logan, face to face. The two stare each other down for a few seconds... and Gravedigger grabs the World Title out of Logan's hands.

    Zach Davis: These two are about to explode...

    ...and Gravedigger straps the Title around Logan's waist, before raising his arm in the air. Not Falling plays once again.

    Kyle Steel: Wow, didn't expect that.

    Shannan Lerch: A showing of respect, or a passing of the torch, from Gravedigger to Logan... Wow.

    The copyright info appears on the bottom of the screen, and Helloween comes to a close with the image of Gravedigger and Logan.

    11/30/03 - Timebomb - Rick Mad vs Outcast
    11/30/03 - Timebomb - Kojima/Defman vs Mad/Cradle

    Shannan Lerch: A dark horse was coming up, a man by the name of Kojima, a man wanting to take the Team of Treachery out. Also, a man by the name of David Baker debuted, a man who had been trained by Logan. A Nazi named Neo came into WCF. It was interesting times. And Cradle began teaming with Rick Mad in Tag situations.

    Kyle Steel: That's right, although he didn't know it, Cradle was partnered with a man who had helped kidnap his son.

    Shannan Lerch: All of these things would come together eventually. Kojima faced Logan for the Television Title, and believe it or not, Kojima took the Title away from Logan. Wreck interfered.

    Kyle Steel: Meanwhile, Burn Out was saying he deserved a World Title shot. Wreck wanted the shot too. So the match was made for Timebomb, Burn Out vs Logan vs Wreck.

    Shannan Lerch: Also-

    Kyle Steel: Oh yeah, and the romance between Shannan and Logan was heating up!

    Shannan Lerch: SHUT UP!

    Kyle Steel: Defman and Kojima were forming a bond, as they both hated the TOT. A huge match was signed for Timebomb, Defman and Kojima against Rick Mad and PC Cradle.

    Shannan Lerch: Mad and Cradle weren't satisfied with just that...let's see.

PC Cradle, former Hardcore Champ and possibly the next Television Champ, is out third. And finally, Rick Mad, possibly the next Hardcore Champion, steps out last. The four men walk down the aisle, Seth and Logan making fun of the fans and Cradle and Mad just ignoring them. They roll into the ring, and Lerch grabs a mic.

    Seth Lerch: Well, well, well... I know this may seem like cheap heat, but damn, does this town suck. Why do I always do shows in these shitty arenas?

    The crowd boos, duh.

    Seth Lerch: Yeah, boo all you want, maybe I'll charge all of you an extra dollar or two to exit the arena. You know, a tax for disrespecting me. In fact... I have a message for all you people, and here to deliver it, is Logan.

    Seth hands the mic to Logan, who clears his throat, as if he's delivering some big speech...

    Logan: SHUT UP!

    The crowd boos heavily once again.

    Logan: You know, when I came into this company four years ago. I respected everything in it, and I still do. I didn't just come in here and get handed The World Title, or get handed a group with some of the best wrestlers I've ever met. No, I worked my ass off for that. I've injured myself, retired myself, and even had Seth fire myself to get where I am today. So for all of you new WCF punks, you need to RESPECT every moment that shines for you in WCF. That's all I really have to say, but no.. SHUT UP! There is one more thing I must say. Tonight, against my biggest fan.. "I will do, whatcha gotta do, to get to the top!"

    Logan hands the microphone back to Seth Lerch, as he stands on the turnbuckle raising his title into the air for a booing crowd.

    Shannan Lerch: Logan owns this place, I'm glad I'm going out with him.

    Zach Davis: If his head wasn't stuck to far up Seth's ass, then--

    Zach Davis mumbles out the rest.

    Logan then jumps down from the turnbuckle, slinging the World Title back over his right shoulder.

    Seth Lerch: Well said. And-

    Seth is interrupted as God of Thunder by KISS hits. All of the TOT looks toward the entryway as Outcast steps out, mic in hand.

    Seth Lerch: Who in the-

    Mad grabs the mic from Lerch.

    Rick Mad: Who in the hell are you to come out here, Outcast?! What do you want!?

    Outcast: Rick, Rick, Rick... and Seth, Seth, Seth... I was told you two had some surprised for my last match at Timebomb. What's the deal?

    Seth Lerch: Aha, THAT. You thought I'd let you off the hook with just some singles match? Never. I-

    Outcast: You SHUT YOUR MOUTH, Lerch. I don't care what you have to say anymore, this is MY last match and I'M calling the shots. I don't care what kind of stipulations you had, but this match is going to be a Buried Alive match!

    Seth Lerch: Buried Alive? Rick, what do you think?

    Rick Mad: FINE by me. I'll be happy to bury Outcast, and his career, down in hell.

    Seth Lerch: Well then, 'Casty, you've got a deal. Now get out of my arena, I have business to attend to.

    Outcast: Fine, I got what I want. But Rick... I'll see you soon, boy.

    With that, Outcast walks to the back as Rick looks outraged.

    Zach Davis: Wow.. this Timebomb is going to be a great show.

    Seth Lerch: Now, what I was trying to say... The Television, Hardcore, and World Titles are all being defended tonight. So I think to myself earlier today... what's missing? A Tag Team Title match.

    Zach Davis: Oh well, it's kinda too late. Monster Squad isn't prepared to defend their Titles tonight, that wouldn't be fair.

    Shannan Lerch: This is Seth Lerch we're talking about... fair isn't a factor.

    Seth Lerch: So, I think to myself, which tag team has been dominating the most recently? Who deserves a shot more than anyone else? Death and Torture?

    Pop from the crowd.

    Seth Lerch: Hell no, not those XCW rejects. Eternal Agony? Has-beens. The Wests? Never weres. There is only ONE team worthy of this shot... Rick Mad and PC Cradle.

    Zach Davis: WHAT?! That's ridiculous!

    The crowd boos at Seth's choice, as it's obviously unfair.

    Seth Lerch: Creeper, Hacker, get out here RIGHT NOW! This match is on!

    Creeper and Hacker come walking out, in their street clothes, with no pyro or anything. They hop into the ring as the rest of the TOT, excluding Mad and Cradle, roll out.

    Seth Lerch: RING THE BELL!

    The bell is rung, and the match is official. Creeper and Mad brawl, as does Cradle and Hacker. Somehow Creeper and Hacker begin to get the upper hand, and they both Chokeslam their respective opponents at the same time!

    Zach Davis: Look at that! They weren't even prepared for this match!

    Creeper drops to pin Mad, but all of a sudden Seth Lerch rolls into the ring and hits an Elbow Drop on him, causing him to break it up. Seth threatens the ref, not allowing him to call a disqualification. Logan rolls in next, picks up Hacker, and hits a Connector. Logan and Cradle stomp away at im as Seth and Mad beat down Creeper.

    Shannan Lerch: GO TOT!

    Zach Davis: This is horrible. All because he thought the 20th Slam should have a Tag Title match, ugh.

    Shannan Lerch: No. Lerch wanted the Tag Team Titles.. and now the TOT is getting them.

    Cradle picks up Creeper and hits the Cradlearm DDT! He then pins. Seth yells at the ref to drop and make the count.. 1. 2. 3.

    Zach Davis: Ugh. PC Cradle has won the Tag Team Titles for his team.

    Shannan Lerch: YAY!

    Zach Davis: In my eyes, the Monster Squad are still Champs. They got completely screwed, they shouldn't have been forced to wrestle this match. And all the interference... ugh.

    Seth grabs the Tag Titles, and places them around Cradle and Mad's waist. They raise their arms, much to the hatred of the live crowd.

    Seth Lerch: And as for you two, Defman and Kojima? You two get a shot at these Tag Team Titles at Timebomb, even though you don't deserve it. Monster Squad, you'll get a rematch sometime, don't worry your ugly little heads. TOT... let's get out of here.

    All four men roll out of the ring and begin walking to the back, with each wrestler holding a Title.

    Zach Davis: And ugh, they have TWO other chances at gaining Titles! They could hold all the power in WCF in a matter of less than an hour...

    Back to backstage.

    Kyle Steel: So, Outcast was retiring, and taking on Rick Mad in his last match. Also that night, Cradle beat Kojima for the Television Title. The TOT was on a roll.

    Shannan Lerch: That's true, but a new tag team was set to debut, and they too were on a roll..

  • 11/23/03 - Sunday Slam - Death and Torture Debut
  • Fuel by Metallica hits, and Spike West and Chad West step out from the back.

    Zach Davis: We still don't know much about these two men, they haven't been very vocal.

    They walk to the ring quickly, hop in, and grab mics.

    Chad West: We're out here to make one thing clear. Tag Titles are no, we are the best damn team in this place. Bottom line. There's no one in the back that-

    And as if on cue, Fuel by Metallica plays again.

    Chad West: What? Cut our music!

    A voice is heard overtop the music...

    Voice: The music is mine now, bitch.

    And with that, Death and Torture walk out from the back. They, too, have mics in their hands. Death had just responded.

    Shannan Lerch: They're WCF's newest tag, and I guess they took offense to what the Wests had to say.

    Torture: You guys can say you're the best, but you've never been up against us! Death is an unstoppable monster, and me, I'm Torture and I'M SO GOD DAMN COOL!

    The crowd pops, as anyone that knows anything about Torture recognizes his catchphrase.

    Spike West: Who in the HELL do you newbies think you are?! We've been here longer than you, you have NO right to come out here like this! What are you going to say, "XCW sucks" this, "Gonz0 is a whore" that? No one cares. This is WCF, boys.

    Death: Oh, really? Well I tell you what.. how about we come in there and show you what we're all about!?

    Both teams drop their mics, and Death and Torture storm the ring!

    Zach Davis: We have an all out brawl going, this was unexpected!

    Death and Spike exchange blows, as does Torture and Chad! Death and Torture both get the upper hand, and simutaneously hit moves. Torture executes a perfect Inflictorture, as Death hits the Fade to Black! The crowd cheers the newcomers, and they raise their arms in the air to an even bigger pop.

    Shannan Lerch: Impressive, to say the least.

    Zach Davis: Look, they're not done!

    Torture and Death threw their opponents outside the ring. Death pulls out the steel steps, while Torture rolls Spike onto the Spanish Announce Table. Death takes Chad up the steps, and hits a Rolling Death onto it! Meanwhile, Torture hits a Torture's Device, sending Spike through the table! Both of the men then grab chairs, and begin smashing the West's with them, mercilessly.

    Shannan Lerch: Wow... look at that intensity.

    Zach Davis: I don't know if we'll be seeing the Wests around here again any time soon.

    As soon as Death and Torture tire of beating down the now unconcious men, they leave the ring as Wanna Be A Rock Superstar by Cypress Hill echoes throughout the arena. As they're half way up the ramp, it stops.. and Neo walks out from the back, mic in hand!

    Neo: You guys think you're so damn good? Well, despite my injury, I'm back to compete at the PPV, Timebomb, and I have no opponents. As far as I can tell, you guys don't either. So here's the challenge. Death and Torture against me and a mystery partner of my choosing. How about it?

    Death and Torture snicker. Death walks up to Neo, and grabs the mic.

    Death: You've got yourself a match, Nazi boy. We'll see you then. Now once again, play our goddamned music, and let's get out of here.

    Wanna Be A Rock Superstar plays again as Death and Torture walk past Neo, showing disrespect. Neo doesn't seem phased by this, and simply walks to the back after they're gone.

    Zach Davis: These guys just got here and they're already causing problems.. I can't wait to see them in action.

    Kyle. Shannan. We're back to them.

    Kyle Steel: For all the controvery they caused, they'd turn out to be a great team.

    Shannan Lerch: As Timebomb rolled around, they defeated the team of Neo and Madd Dogg, although Dogg hadn't shown up until the middle of the match. Also at Timebomb, Mad faced Outcast in that Buried Alive match, which was Outcast's last. We have that for you tonight.

  • 11/30/03 - Timebomb - Rick Mad vs Outcast
  • The heavy part of Metallica's One plays, and a green light fills the arena. Rick Mad steps out to booing. He walks to the ring slowly, rolls in and raises his arms in the middle as green pyro blasts from the turnbuckles. The lights go back to normal as the music stops.

    Zach Davis: I think this is WCF's first ever Buried Alive Match.

    Shannan Lerch: Indeed, it is quite dangerous. Death is possible in this match up.

    'God of Thunder' hits and the crowd cheers. Outcast walks out in black jeans. he goes to the ring with is eyes fixed on the ring. Nothing else phases him. He slides in and raises his hands as the music stops.

    Kyle Steel: I don't know about you all, but I sure will miss Outcast.

    Zach Davis: True, true. He's a former World Champion.

    Shannan Lerch: Not only that, but he has been with us since day one.

    Zach Davis: Not many people in WCF can say that now, besides Rick Mad, Logan, and Steve Carr.

    Kyle Steel: The Monster Squad has been with this new WCF the whole time too! But that's different..

    Outcast and Rick Mad begin circling each other, then step in, tying up. Rick Mad immediately slips Cast into a headlock, as he looks around at the booing crowd. Outcast sends a few stiff jabs to the ribs of Mad, as he releases the hold. Outcast recovers, as he begins throwing right hands to Rick Mad. Outcast right hands Mad all the way to the ring ropes, Rick leans against them feeling a bit dazed. Outcast grabs Rick Mad and slings him across the ring with an Irish whip, as Rick Mad is coming back Outcast takes him down with a body slam. Outcast picks him up, and slams him back down with another body slam. Cast stands over Rick Mad, grabbing him by the legs and applying an inverted boston crab.

    Zach Davis: Submissions don't really matter in this match.

    Rick Mad screams out in pain, as his hand slaps against the ring matt. Outcast still applies the hold, knowing there is really no rules in this match. With a little bit of strength, Rick somehow flips Outcast over and locks him into a Sharpshooter. Rick Mad smiles sadistically, as Outcast whiffers in pain, after a few moments Outcast begins closing his eyes.

    Kyle Steel: Rick Mad is f'n awesome. He has TWO matches tonight, and one of them has to be the most violent match in wrestling.

    Shannan Lerch: Agreed.

    Outcast somehow pushes Rick off of him, Rick Mad falls against the ropes as Outcast makes it to his feet. Rick Mad turns around, running at Cast. Outcast throws Rick Mad over his head causing Rick to fly over the ropes and lay on the protective matts outside the ring. The crowd cheers in response to this, Outcast slides out of the ring picking Mad up to his feet. Out of nowhere, Rick Mad pokes Outcast in the eyes out of desperation. Outcast stumbles around, covering his eyes with his hands, causing him not to see much as Rick Mad sneakily closelines Outcast down. Outcast rubs his eyes, as his vision focuses back. Rick Mad picks Cast up to his feet, but Outcast retaliates with a boot to the gut. Rick Mad bends over, and Outcast grabs his head and leans back DDTing him into the steel steps!

    Zach Davis: Whoa! Is Rick Mad busted open?!

    Indeed, Rick Mad appears to be bleeding, but not too bad. Rick Mad lays sprawled out over the steps, with a little bit of blood running down his forehead. Outcast picks Rick Mad's head up, and begins shouting at him. "You want to bury me boy?!" Outcast slams Rick's head down on the steps again, as Rick Mad bounces off the steps and lays down against them. Outcast picks Rick up in his arms, and begins carrying him up the ramp towards the grave site. They get to the top of the ramp, and the grave is just a few feet below on the side of the ramp. Rick Mad begins to recover, and begins slinging right hands to Outcast. Outcast comes back, exchanging blows with Rick Mad. Out of nowhere, Rick Mad kicks Outcast and falls back with him planting a MAD DDT off the ramp into the grave. Both men lay there in the dirt, not moving.

    Kyle Steel: Holy crap! A Mad DDT off of the ramp into the grave!

    They lay there a few moments. Inside the grave, eventually, Outcast and Mad begin showing signs of movement. They both crawl out of the grave, and stand to their feet exchanging right hands once again. Rick Mad swings a close line at Outcast, but Outcast ducks and hits Rick with an neck breaker. Rick falls down, rolling into the grave hole. Outcast gets up and begins shoveling dirt over him!

    Zach Davis: He's going bury him! Wait, that's NOT right!

    Kyle Steel: It is called a Buried Alive Match..

    Zach Davis: Oh, yeah.

    Rick Mad jumps out, and grabs the shovel. They begin playing tuggle war with the shovel, but Outcast sends a stiff kick to the groin of Rick. Rick Mad stumbles back into the dirty hole.

    Shannan Lerch: What the hell is that?!

    Outcast is signaling a dump truck, FULL OF DIRT! The dumptruck backs up, and pours the dirt out onto Rick Mad.

    Kyle Steel: Outcast has won this thing, but.. is Rick Mad okay?

    Zach Davis: WHO CARES?! Outcast beats Rick Mad in his final match ever!

    Outcast raises his arms into the air, as the crowd chants his name. He goes around to the fans, slapping their hands and whatnot, before running back into the ring and getting a mic.

    Outcast: I... I'm not going to say much... I'll miss you guys, all of you. Bye, WCF.

    With that, Outcast drops the mic and begins walking backstage. The crowd again erupts in "OUTCAST! OUTCAST!" chants, and Outcast is clearly emotional. He raises his arm one last time before he walks backstage.

    Zach Davis: Yes, Outcast... we'll miss you too.

    Shannan Lerch: Now.. um.. what about poor Rick? He still has to compete!

    Soon after Outcast has left to go to the back, Logan and PC Cradle run out, with shovels. They begin digging up their friend. After a few moments, Rick Mad pops out of the dirt, rolling his eyes in the back of his head.

    Kyle Steel: The Undertaker! I knew it all along!

    Shannan Lerch: Wha..?

    Rick's eyes go back into normal vision, as Cradle, Logan, and Rick soon to begin to chuckle. Logan and Cradle begin to walk out.. but Rick doesn't, and instead pulls a mic from his pocket.

    Rick Mad: Outcast.. THIS ISN'T OVER! Get out here, right now!

    Outcast comes walking out again, somewhat unhappy looking to be called out after his last match. They stare bullets at one another... then Mad extends his hand. Outcast smiles, and takes it. Mad holds Outcast's arm in the air, and the two then embrace in a hug.

    Zach Davis: Those men started their wrestling careers together, and T.O.T. or no, they're best friends.

    Mad and Outcast then walk backstage, as the crowd does an "OUTCAST!" chant one more time.

    We go back to Kyle and Shannan, in the backstage area.

    Kyle Steel: And a true legend and hall of famer left for good.

    Shannan Lerch: However, there was one match left for Timebomb, and it would rock the WCF to it's core. The Mad/Cradle team had been deteriorating ever since it started, with each man attacking the other. However, in the week before the match, it seemed they were on the same page. Things were about to change.

  • 11/30/03 - Timebomb - Kojima/Defman vs Mad/Cradle
  • Zach Davis: Ok guys, its time for some main event action!

    Shannan Lerch: This one is going to be a slobberknocker!

    Zach and Kyle look at Shannan for a long moment

    Shannan Lerch: Wh…what? Well it is!

    Kyle Steel: Ok, let's get these guys in the ring already!

    The arena goes completely dark, The sound of calling crows is heard. Two sets of red eyes appear on the jumbotron. The eyes are revealed to be those of two crows. The crows fade away from the jumbo tron and the sound of horses and wooden wagon are now heard. and two black horses pulling a wagon appear on the jumbotron. they are getting closer. almost as if they are going to come through the screen. Then they disappear and it is completely dark again. Then a white a fog like substance shoots all around the ring, totalling covering the ring. The fog is then sucked down by vents, and the lights come back on. and standing in the middle of the ring is Kojima.

    Kyle Steel: Kojima doing his usual mystical entrance, only this time he doesn't have the TV title around his waist.

    Shannan Lerch: Yeah! That belt is firmly in the camp of my bro and my man!

    The voices, the voices, the voices, the VOICES!!

    The voices, they take control,
    The voices, destroy your soul,
    The voices, they kill us all,
    The voices, why wont they fall?

    THE VOICES!!!

    Zach Davis: Well you know what that means! Defman has arrived!

    The arena goes black, a light neon blue shines at the top of the ramp, the light grows into a series of explosions, and the lights come back on. Defman is seen at the top of the ramp, murmering to himself... He starts walking down to the ring, head down... He jumps onto the apron, and steps over the ropes

    Kyle Steel: Jesus, this guy is big!

    Shannan Lerch: In more ways than one, I bet.

    Zach Davis: You know, I hope Logan is listening!

    Shannan Lerch: SHUT UP! Anyway, Defman and Kojima coming out separately. That's a sure fire sign that these two aren't exactly the best of friends.

    Kyle Steel: That's very astute of you Shannan.

    Shannan Lerch: Astute?

    "Better than You" by Metallica fills the arena. The crowd al rise to their feet, and Rick Mad steps through the curtain first, his title hooked around his neck.. As he moves away from the curtain, PC Cradle walks out at a sped, both belts around his waist. The crowd cheer at Cradle, and Rick Mad starts mouthing of to the fans. Cradle runs down the ramp past Rick and slides into the ring. He climbs to one knee and stares at his opponents, who stand side by side in their corner. Rick Mad climbs in and puts his hands on Cradles shoulders. The referee takes the belts off of them, holding up the tag titles to the crowd.

    Zach Davis: That's what this is all about. The tag team gold.

    Kyle Steel: Yeah, and Cradle and Mad could lose the belts only a week after winning them!

    Zach Davis: This match is anything goes, so expect tagging to be at a minimum.

    Cradle, Rick Mad, Kojima and Defman all circle one another and the bell rings. Immediately, Defman and PC Cradle slide out of the ring, and begin setting up tables on the outside! Lots of tables. Kojima and Rick Mad march up to one another, standing face to face, nose to nose. We hear Kojima say "Your mine, Rick". Rick laughs and looks away, before slapping the face pf Kojima. Kojima retaliates, spearing Rick to the floor. Kojima begins peppering Mad with punches to the face. Cradle and Defman set up two tables along each side of the ring, totalling 8 tables outside!

    Kyle Steel: Well don't expect them to throw a dinner party at those tables.

    Zach Davis: I think that's pretty obvious "Kyle".

    Shannan Lerch: You sounded so gay when you said that.

    Cradle grabs the back of Kojima's head, pulling him off Mad, and hits a falling neckbreaker. Kojima goes down, and Defman slides in, running Cradle over with a huge lariat. Cradle rolls to the outside.

    Zach Davis: These two have a much storied rivalry, and we can expect to se it grow here tonight.

    Defman grabs Cradle by the hair and stands on the apron. Defman picks Cradle up for a chokeslam, but Mad grabs Cradle, puling him back in. Defman turns just in time to be met with a double superkick from Mad and Cradle, sending him tumbling to the floor. As Cradle and Mad turn, Kojima runs up, hitting a double lariat ton both of them. Cradle and Mad both go down. Kojima hits the ropes, returning with a big knee drop to the chest of Cradle. Rick Mad manages to get to his feet, but Defman grabs his head, pulling his neck down on the ropes.

    Kyle Steel: I'm surprised at how well these two function as a team. I thought they'd be ripping each other apart as well!

    Kojima drops a leg over the back of Cradles neck, and picks him up, lifting him to his feet. Kojima signals to one of the tables, and picks Cradle up on his shoulders. Kojima slowly climbs the turnbuckles, Cradle still in a fireman scary position. Kojima stands on the second turnbuckle, facing the outside.

    Zach Davis: What the hell…

    Kojima steps up to the top rope, and launches off, hitting a devastating top-rope-Death-Valley-Driver-to-the-outside-through-a-table!

    Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!

    Cradle lies amongst the broken table, as does Kojima. Defman pulls Rick Mad to the outside, and is about to powerbomb him through one of the tables, when Rick Mad begins battling back.

    Shannan Lerch: These guys are getting awful close to us here.

    Mad lays Defman on the table, and ascends the top rope. Rick Mad stands on the top for a moment, before jumping high into the air and crashing down with a huge guillotine leg drop through the table!

    Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!

    Kyle Steel: Wow! These fans are getting their moneys worth!

    Mad climbs to one knee, but is met with a big knee to the face from Kojima. Kojima grabs Mad, throwing him into the steel ring post. Mad walks backwards, stunned by the post. And Kojima clotheslines the back of his head, sending him down. From no where, Cradle runs at the ropes, and launches over them, hitting the ugliest plancha ever seen!

    Shannan Lerch: That wasn't a wrestling move! He just fell on him!

    Cradle gets to his feet, as does Defman. Defman grabs Cradle by the throat and lifts him up, before slamming him down onto the concrete with a sickening chokeslam. Cradles body slaps as it hits the floor, and Defman grins manically. Defman grabs Cradle by his head, as Rick Mad stomps Kojima. Mad grabs on of the tag belts, slamming it into the side of Kojima's head. Kojima begins to bleed.

    Kyle Steel: We got juice!

    Zach Davis: And a lot of it!

    The camera shows a close up of a 3 inch long gash on the side of Kojima's head, as blood spills down his neck. Defman has a steel chair, and Cradle stands against the ring post. Defman swings hard, and Cradle ducks just in time, but Defman reverse swings, hitting Cradle squarely in the face! We can see the chair is totally mangled, and Cradle, to, is bleeding. Defman begins throwing well aimed punches into the face of Cradle.

    Shannan Lerch: This is getting gory now. It's the WCF horror movie part 2!

    The screen goes back to Kojima, who has a pool of blood under his head. Rick Mad begins stomping his face.

    Zach Davis: I'm actually impressed with Rick Mad. He's had one match already tonight, and now he's here dominating Kojima.

    Mad pulls Kojima to his knees, and Kojima hits a low blow on Mad!

    Kyle Steel: Crude, but effective.

    Rick Mad tumbles over side ways. We go back to Defman and Cradle, who are making their way up the ramp. Cradle battles back, delivering three stick kicks to Defmans gut. Cradle delivers to big punches to Defmans face, and he runs back to the ring. Cradle lifts the apron, and drags out a huge long coil of barbed wire!

    Zach Davis: This one is gonna get bloodier quickly.

    Cradle wraps some of the barbed wire around his fist, and starts punching the face of Defman. We can se tiny rivers of blood snaking down Defmans face. Cradles wrapping tape on his hand has turned red, as the barbs dig into his hand. Cradle pulls the wire off, and attempts a lariat, but Defman ducks, before hitting a big German suplex on the ramp. Back down by the ring, and Kojima and Rick Mad are both up, exchanging rights. Kojima gets he better of Mad, forcing him onto another table. Kojima climbs on with him, and hooks Mad up in a piledriver position! Kojima drops back hard, piledriving Mad through the table to the floor!

    Shannan Lerch: There's wood everywhere!

    Kyle Steel: Jesus Shannan, you're obsessed!

    Shannan Lerch: I mean table…oh, forget it.

    Defman has Cradle by the head and drags him further up the ramp. They stand underneath the metal frame work of the jumbotron, and Defman hoists Cradle up for a powerbomb. Cradle grabs hold of the metal and pulls himself up, so he is standing on the lowest part of the structure. Cradle walks along the titantron carefully, and Defman jumps, grabbing hold of the framework himself. Defman pulls himself up, and by now, Cradle has already begun climbing the scaffolding. Defman follows gingerly, beginning to climb up and follow Cradle.

    Zach Davis: My god! Look how high up these guys are!!! One false move and they are both dead!

    Defman grabs at Cradle ankles as they near the top of the structure. Cradle stomps on Defmans fingers, and pulls himself on to the top of the Jumbotron. Defman follows, and both stand, exchanging blows on top of the 50 foot structure!

    Shannan Lerch: Oh my god…

    Cradle kicks Defman low, making him double over. Cradle double underhooks Defman, and lifts him vertically into the air!

    Kyle Steel: No…he's not gonna…

    Cradle launches forward off the structure! Cradle and Defman plummet the 50 foot drop, and Cradle hits his Cradle-arm DDT from the Jumbotron, into a dumpster!!!

    Zach Davis: Holy shit! Did you guys see that!

    The whole crowd chant in unison "DUB C F, DUB CF, DUB C F!" Everyone in the arena is hushed, waiting for a sign of life from the dumpster. Rick Mad and Kojima are both still down. A hand appears out of the dumpster!

    Kyle Steel: How can these two still be alive? Cradle hit the Cradle-arm DDT from the top of the Jumbotron, to the floor!

    Defmans head appears! He falls out of the dumpster and lays on the floor. Cradle soon follows, sitting against the dumpster, breathing heavily. Kojima and Rick Mad are both up and in the ring. Mad hits the ropes and runs at Kojima, but Kojima throws fire in his face!

    Zach Davis: Rick Mad's eyes could be burnt to a crisp! We've seen that in other companies, but never here before.

    Kojima climbs onto Mad's back, locking in a devastating Camel Clutch. Mad's hands flail as he tries to scrape his way to the ropes. Mad is about to tap, when Cradle climbs into the ring and breaks it up! Cradle runs at the ropes, delivering a sick Yakuza kick to the side of Kojima's head. Cradle stands next to the two men in the ring, when we hear a breathless voice on a microphone. We look up the ramp and see that it's Defman!!!

    Defman: Hey…hey Cradle! Is this what you've been looking for!?

    The camera zooms in and we see that Defman is holding a black VHS video! Cradle's eyes widen and he walks to the ropes, shouting at Defman.

    Defman: This is the tape you've been looking for! And I think it's about time everybody gets to see it, don't you1? Your gonna want to watch this!

    Defman walks backstage, as Cradle stands staring at the Jumbotron.

    Zach Davis: I can't believe this.

    The Jumbotron flickers for a second and we see we are watching through a security camera. We see a shot of the WCF locker room, and it is empty. Cradle looks at the screen cynically. We see a couple of WCF superstars arrive, but quickly leave. Cradle's eyes grow widely as we see Cradle himself, and his son, entering the locker room. We see Cradle (on the screen) pull his elbow pads on and his wrapping tape, whilst his son sits on the bench in the middle of the room. We see that little Danny Cradle has his back to the door, as Cradle leaves for his match. A couple of moments pass, as Danny sits and waits on the bench. We see a shadow move in the room, and all of a sudden, somebody puts a brown sack over Danny's head!

    Shannan Lerch: Who is it? I can't see!

    The man kidnapping Danny turns and looks at the camera for a second. The screen freezes. Everybody in the arena looks at the screen, and we can see clearly that the man kidnapping PC Cradles son is Rick Mad!!!

    Zach Davis: Oh my god…

    Cradle (in the ring) begins trembling with anger, as the screen moves again. This time, we see Steve Carr and Seth Lerch walk in just after Mad has left. We can hear them speaking…

    Kyle Steel: This was recorded a few months ago, before Carr got injured.

    Seth Lerch: Now that dumb son of a bitch, PC Cradle, will think that Defman stole his son, so he'll have to join the TOT!

    Steve Carr: Should we get rid of the kid?

    Seth Lerch: Like how?

    Steve Carr: You know…make him vanish, that sort of thing.

    Seth Lerch: You mean kill him? No, we can do that later.

    The screen freezes on Seth Lerch's evil smile. The crowd murmur to themselves and the grinning Defman appears on the stage, microphone in hand.

    Defman: So you see Cradle…you've been played for a fool! I never kidnapped your son. It was Rick Mad. It was Logan. It was Steve Carr. It was Seth Lerch. It was the Team of Treachery! So what are you gonna do now Cradle?

    Cradle falls into the corner, his hands on his face. He sits there for a moment, breathing heavily. Without warning, he jumps up, and grabs Rick Mad hair. Cradle begins slamming Rick's head into the mat hard, over and over. Defman runs down to the ring. Defman slides in but watches as Cradle starts constantly punching Mad in the face! Mad's face streams blood and Defman grabs a steel chair, and hands it to Cradle. Cradle puts the top of the chair to Mad's throat, and starts choking the life out of him. Kojima gets to his feet, and Cradle runs at him with the chair, almost taking his head off! Defman grins, watching the destruction he's caused. Cradle walks up to Defman and stairs him in the eyes. After a couple of moments…Defman extends his hand!

    Zach Davis: What the hell is this?!

    Cradle shakes Defman's hand, and picks Rick Mad up, hitting a huge Cradle-arm DDT on him! Defman grabs the steel steps from the outside, and brings them down hard on Kojima's ankle! Kojima writhes on the floor, grabbing hold of his shattered ankle. Defman hits the stop and Drop on Kojima, and Cradle hits a second Cradle-arm DDT on Rick Mad.

    Kyle Steel: Well I don't know what the hell is going on now.

    Defman grabs the ref and throws him to the mat, telling him to count the falls. Defman pins Kojima, and Cradle pins Rick Mad! The referee reluctantly counts…

    ONE…

    TWO…

    THREE!

    Cradle slides out of the ring holding his steel chair, and says something to the announcer.

    Ring Announcer: The winners of this match and NEW WCF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…DEFMAN….AND P…C...CRADLE!

    The crowd explode, roaring in unison over the new tag champs. Cradle grabs both titles and throws one to Defman, and both men raises their titles into the air at the same time.

  • Timebomb - Explosion!
  • 12/7/03 - Sunday Slam - Wifebeaters Interrupt Logan
    12/21/03 - Explosion! - Explosion Match

    Shannan Lerch: Although Defman would lose his Hardcore Title, all eyes were still on the team of him and Cradle. Everyone wanted them. The Tag Division was the hot thing going.

    Kyle Steel: Yes, because unfortunately our World Champion, Logan, walked out on us following some backstage problems late in the month.

    Shannan Lerch: Sigh, yes, and it was a sad day. It is with a heavy heart that I take you back to the moment he might have asked me to marry him, and the moment the TOT officially died.

  • 12/7/03 - Sunday Slam - Wifebeaters Interrupt Logan
  • "Not Falling" by Mudvayne blasts throughout the arena.

    Kyle Steel: We know who music that belongs to..

    Shannan Lerch: Logan, my baby! The best EVER in WCF, and may I add he is still the WCF World Champion.

    Kyle Steel: Indeed he is, pulling off that big win at Timebomb.

    Logan comes out, to the ramp dressed in street clothes with the WCF title over his shoulder and a microphone in his hand.

    Logan: Hey, hey, hey.. cut the music. The Face of Treachery has something to say!

    Kyle Steel: It's probably about PC Cradle.

    Logan: Whoa, hey. Simma down Kyle, I said "The Face of Treachery" had something to say.. not Kyle Boudle Loganwannabe Steel!

    Shannan Lerch: Hehe.

    Kyle Steel: How did he know I said something!? I'm just an announcer!

    Logan continues to walk down the ramp, and he goes to slap a fans hand but instead lifts his arm up right intime before he can make a contact with the fans hand.

    Logan: Haha, you ain't good enough to touch this hand.

    The crowd boos, as usual as Logan rolls into the ring standing to his feet.

    Logan: Anyhow, to why I came out here.

    Shannan Lerch: Logan seems to be in a good mood, which is strange from the circumstances of Timebomb.

    Logan: Yeah, many of you thought I'd be talking about PC Cradle. BUT... but, but, but.

    Logan rubs his chin.

    Logan: Tonight isn't about PC Cradle. You know, come to think of it.. should I even care that he ditched T.o.T? Why? Why I say? Exactly what effect is that goin' have on The Face of Treachery? How is PC Cradle leaving, going to change my life? He's NOBODY! The only people who watch WCF, or buy tickets to come to a show.. is only so they can see ME, baby, ME! They don't come to see some boudle with long hair, run around and give people Cradle DDT's. No, they came to see me. The two time WCF Champion, the two time U.S. Champion, the one time T.V. Champion, The Hall of Famer, and the ONLY person ever to hold the U.S. title AND the International title.

    Shannan Lerch: True, true.

    Logan: That's whom they came to see. And, hey boudle, if Cradle joins that crappy Anti-Soical T.o.T group.. then I'll beat all their treachery wannabe asses.

    Logan smiles, nodding as the crowd boos.

    Logan: But, to why I came out here. I wanted to talk about a special someone, and her name is Shannan Lerch.

    Shannan smiles, and Logan smiles back to her.

    Logan: Shannan, could you come down to the ring baby.

    Shannan Lerch takes off her headset, and stands up.

    Kyle Steel: Where you going? You got a job to do!

    Shannan Lerch walks down the ramp, and slides into the ring as the crowd starts up a bit of a "Shannan" chant.

    Logan: How you doing?

    Logan moves the microphone towards Shannan's mouth.

    Shannan Lerch: I'm fine honey, you?

    Logan: I am GREAT baby, The Face of Treachery is feeling mighty fine. You know what Shanny..

    Kyle Steel: Shanny?!

    Logan: I have to be the luckiest man alive, to be with you.

    Shannan Lerch blushes, as Logan drops down to a knee in front of her.

    Logan: Ow..

    Logan begins rubbing his side.

    Logan: Don't mind that, that's just a little Timebomb loving injury.

    Logan takes Shannan's hand.

    Kyle Steel: HE IS GOIN' TO PROPOSE!

    Logan: Will you..

    Shannan Lerch immediately becomes excited.

    Logan: Baby, I love you with all my heart. Shannan Lerch, will you.. do the dishes from now on?

    Kyle Steel: WHAT?!

    Logan stands to his feet.

    Logan: You KNOW I hate doing them baby.

    Shannan Lerch nods, disappointed. Logan leans forward and they soon begin making out in the ring.

    Kyle Steel: Someone needs to stop this!

    All of a sudden, the lights go out. The only thing that can be heard is gunshots throughout the arena. Soon, a very familiar voice from a very familiar song is heard...

    Music: Now that the war is through with me...

    The lights blink a few times as the music continues, and soon they come back on. Logan looks around, as Shannan isn't in front of him anymore. He turns around, and is met with a kick to the gut FOLLOWED BY A MAD DDT FROM RICK MAD! Zach Davis is in the corner, holding Shannan and covering her mouth.

    Kyle Steel: WHAT IN THE HELL IS THIS!?

    Rick Mad tears off his TOT shirt he was wearing, and throws it to the ground on Logan, then stomps it.

    Kyle Steel: I think it's officially safe to say that the Team of Treachery is dead.

    Zach Davis is about to throw Shannan out of the ring, but Rick stops him, shaking his head "no". He grabs a mic.

    Rick Mad: Bob... We can't just throw a woman out of the ring. I mean, she was going to be Logan's WIFE, if he'd have proposed. And we're the WIFEBEATERS, right? You know what to do.

    Zach nods, and puts Shannan in a Powerbomb position. He picks her up and goes to hit the move but as she's coming down Mad grabs her head in a Mad DDT!

    Kyle Steel: NO!! Shannan DID NOT deserve that! She's a woman for pete's sake!

    Rick and Zach, or "Bob the Cameraman", raise their arms in the air to a HUGE chorus of booing.

    Kyle Steel: The Wifebeaters.. well.. living up to their name.

    Rick Mad: Logan, I'm tired of you and I'm tired of Seth Lerch and I'm tired of the Team of Treachery. NO MORE. Me and Bob, here, we're going to go someplace. Mark my words.

    Rick can see that Logan is beginning to get up, so he and Zach quickly exit the ring. As they're going to the back... Anger Rising by Jerry Cantrell plays.

    Kyle Steel: Jeez, what now!? I guess Lerch isn't quite too hurt to come out now.

    Seth Lerch walks out, mic in hand. Seth and Bob stop.

    Seth Lerch: You two think you're hot shots, eh? Messing with Logan like that.. Messing with MY SISTER like that.. messing with whoever you want, and turning on the TOT. I have other problems too, like the damn Tag Team Champions, Defman and PC Cradle. And the fact that we don't have any Number One Contenders, thanks to you, Rick. So I'm going to solve all of my problems with one simple match.

    Kyle Steel: How can one match solve all that?!

    Seth Lerch: At Explosion!, there's going to be two matches. One is the already announced Television Title match. The other match, however... it's going to be a Tag Team Explosion match, a WCF creation. Everyone in the back is going to form a team with someone else. In the start of the match, one man from each team comes to the ring. They can be eliminated via pinfall or submission... no disqualification. And when one person is eliminated, his teammate enters the fray. And then that man has to be eliminated. It goes on until there is only one man left, and his team will be the Tag Team Champions.

    Rick Mad: Big deal, Seth, like I care? We'll come out on top and WIN that.

    Seth Lerch: Over my dead body... let me announce the teams thus far, the rest of you have time to decide who you want to team up with, and if you don't, I'll make a decision for you. PC Cradle and Defman, obviously. The Number One Contenders, Death and Torture. The Monster Squad, and the Dreadnoks. The Wifebeaters, Rick Mad and Bob the Cameraman. And Logan and Seth Lerch! If anyone stops you, Rick, from winning those Titles, it will be me and Logan.

    Anger Rising plays again, and Seth begins walking to the back. Rick and Bob stand on the entranceramp, looking confident. They turn around to look back in the ring... and Logan is right there, and he hits Mad with The Connector!! Shannan is there as well, and she kicks Bob square in the balls! The copyright info appears on the bottom of the screen as Logan and Shannan raise each other's arms.

    We go back to Kyle and Shannan.

    Kyle Steel: That's also how I got my job as lead announcer on Slam!

    Shannan Lerch: Yeah.. but it was sad times.

    Kyle Steel: Anyway, all of these problems among EVERYONE added up. Death and Torture hated the Wifebeaters, as did Lerch. Everyone was gunning for Cradle and Defman, and it was a big mess. Lerch appointed a new General Manager, Davey Ortega, who became the special ref for the Explosion match. It was recent, but we have that match in it's entirety for you now.

  • 12/21/03 - Explosion! - Explosion Match
  • The voices, the voices, the voices, the VOICES!!

    The voices, they take control,
    The voices, destroy your soul,
    The voices, they kill us all,
    The voices, why wont they fall?

    THE VOICES!!!

    The arena goes black, a light neon blue shines at the top of the ramp, the light grows into a series of explosions, and the lights come back on. Defman is seen at the top of the ramp, both Tag Title over his shoulders, murmering to himself... He starts walking down to the ring, head down... He jumps onto the apron, and steps over the ropes. He hands the ref the Tag Titles.

    Red pyros shoot straight up in the air as the music hits. "Wanna be a rock superstar?" The crowd goes wild, and Torture hits the stage. He taunts to himself saying he's so god damn cool, he rolls into the ring and waits.

    All In The Suit That You Wear by Stone Temple Pilots plays as Bob the Cameraman steps out. He raises his arms in the air before he walks to the ring. He rolls in and waits in his corner.

    The Friday the 13th theme plays, and Hacker walks slowly to the ring.

    Razor comes out of the back real slowly and then walks down to the ring. He slides in and raises both arms.

    "Somebody hit the lights...."
    The sound of a single tap dancer comes over the speakers.
    "So we can rock it day and night...."
    A drum and cymbals join the single dancer over the speakers.
    "People getting down that's right...."
    A few more dancers can be heard.
    "From AM to PM"

    As the music whirs, two spotlights cycle through the audience, coming to rest on the stage as Gayfather dances out. He dances down to the ring, conversing with the crowd. He does a Stacy Kiebler like entrance getting into the ring. He then plays to the crowd.

    Shannan Lerch: No Rainbow Brite tonight, the ring will be crowded enough.

    Kyle Steel: SIGH! She could have sat with us.

    Shannan Lerch: We only have two chairs.

    Kyle Steel: I know, she could sit on my lap.

    A pair of ash grey, scarred angel wings appear unfurling to reveal the words Dark Angel on the WCF screen. "The Invasion From Within" starts playing as Dark Angel walks out, and heads into the ring. He gets into the ring, and and awaits the rest of the competitors.

    Shannan Lerch: A newcomer to WCF, let's see how he does.

    The lights go out as the beginning of "Dragula" starts. The house lights come up as Wreck walks to the ring, shaking some hands.

    Headstrong hits and Hal Demango comes out with an evil smile on his face. He climbs into the ring and raises his arms as pyro shoots out of the turnbuckles.

    Kyle Steel: That's all of the initial participants!

    The bell rings, and everyone starts fighting with.. well, everyone. It's a mess in the ring, with most men just pounding on whomever is closest.

    Shannan Lerch: I'm surprised they could wait till everyone was there to fight. This truely is an explosion!

    Seth has gone right to Bob, pounding on him. Torture joins Lerch in kicking at Bob. Hacker and Razor have teamed up and work away on Defman. Gayfather and Angel also have teamed up, fighting both Wreck and Hal Demango. Hacker and Razor throw Defman out of the ring, and then go out with him. They pick him up and try to hit a Double Reverse Suplex onto the guardrail, but Defman lands behind it, on his feet, and uses both his hands to slam their heads into it. He then climbs onto the guardrail, balancing the best he can, and hits a Cross Bodyblock onto both men the best he can. They both go down.

    Kyle Steel: Great move by Defman, what an innovator. We knew he'd be the prime target in this match.

    In the ring, Gayfather and Hal Demango are exchanging blows. Gayfather somehow has gotten the upper hand, and he hits a Dragonscrew Legwhip. He then applies the Nutcracker! Hal screams out in incredible pain, but refuses to give up.

    Shannan Lerch: Guess Hal isn't that ballsy of an individual.

    Kyle Steel: You'd know, you've slept with most of the WCF wrestlers, I hear.

    Wreck kicks Gayfather off, and then starts stomping on him. Dark Angel comes from behind Wreck and grabs him, and quickly hits a Reverse DDT. Angel backs up and waits as Wreck stands up, and goes for a Roundhouse Kick, but Wreck avoids it and hits a quick Chokeslam, sending Angel down to the ground! Gayfather is back up and as Wreck turns around, Gayfather grabs his head, runs to the turnbuckle, gets on, and hits a Tornado DDT. Gayfather quickly pins Wreck, hopefull that he'll eliminate someone... One, two... No, it was not to be, Wreck kicks out.

    Shannan Lerch: We almost had our first elimination.

    Back on the outside, Hacker and Razor have again taken control Defman. Hacker goes for a Headbutt but Defman avoids it, kicks Razor away, and hits a Double Arm DDT on Hacker.

    Kyle Steel: Ouch! On the outside!

    He turns back to Razor, who runs at him, and hits a Belly to Belly Suplex! He then rolls into the ring. Torture and Seth are still working over Bob. Defman runs at Lerch and hits a Bulldog. Torture picks Bob up and gets him in position for a Death Valley Drive. Bob manages to squirm back behind Tort, Tort turns around and gets hit with a Russian Legsweep. Bob then applies a Leglock, trying to get Torture to tap. When Ortega asks Tort if he wants to give up, Tort replies "I'M TOO DAMN COOL TO TAP!". Bob soon releases the hold and begins kicking Tort. Meanwhile Defman is punching Lerch. Defman picks Lerch up, up over his head, and hits an Overhead Press Slam... to the outside! Lerch flies down onto the cold concrete, leaving Defman stand in the ring.

    Shannan Lerch: No! Seth! Ahh, I hope he's OK!

    Kyle Steel: From the looks of it, he's not, and he doesn't have a partner either...

    Wreck has turned against Hal and is fighting him in a corner. He picks him up onto the turnbuckle, climbs up himself, and hits a Superplex! Wreck then quickly pins Hal. One... two.... three.

    Shannan Lerch: There it is, the first elimination.

    Bobby Dole runs out to replace Hal. As he rolls in, he Clotheslines Wreck right down, and begins going to work on him. Gayfather has begun fighting with Razor, and Angel with Hacker. Gayfather hits another Dragonscrew Legwhip, sending Razor to the mat, clutching his leg. He then locks the Nutcracker in again.

    Kyle Steel: That's very appropriate so near Christmas time, ha.

    Apparently Razor is more sensitive there than Hal was, because Razor taps out. Razor rolls out and heads to the back as Burn Out takes his place, fighting the Gayfather. Dark Angel and Hacker are exchanging lefts and rights, and Hacker hits him with a Headbutt. He then hits a quick Leg Drop, and pins. One... two... No, Angel kicks out. Hacker picks Angel up and throws him to the ropes, but Angel slides under them then jumps over them and hits a Springboard Arm Drag on Hacker! He then jumps up a turnbuckle and waits for Hacker to stand up... and as he does, Angel hits the Heaven Falling!

    Shannan Lerch: What an amazing finisher.

    Angel pins Hacker. One, two, three, and Hacker is eliminated as well. He rolls out of the ring grudgingly, and Creeper runs in next. Bobby Dole picks up Wreck and then hits an Atomic Drop. Dole climbs to the top of the turnbuckle, and he looks like he's about to hit an Axe Handle Smash, but Wreck gets up quickly and throws him off. Dole stands up and Wreck quickly Powerbombs him back down to the mat. He pins... One, two... No, Bobby kicks out. Bob the Cameraman and Torture's fight has spilled to the outside. Torture grabs Bob's head and slams it into the guardrail, but Bob immediately does the same to Tort. Soon both men are slamming each other's heads into the metal, and after a few seconds they both seem dizzy. They're both busted open as well, and they collapse.

    Kyle Steel: Two men wearing the crimson mask!

    Dark Angel has just bodyslammed Creeper to the mat. He turns around, and out of nowhere Defman Spears him down! Defman then quickly jumps to the top rope and hits the Big Reverse Elbow! He pins, hooking the leg... One... two... three!

    Shannan Lerch: Ouch, Dark Angel is eliminated.

    Kyle Steel: You know what that means...

    Madd Dogg runs out from the back and slides into the ring! He's immediately turned into everyone's target. Defman runs at him but Dogg Clotheslines him down, Creeper runs at him and gets a Bodyslam, Burn Out attempts a Flying Cross Bodyblock off the top rope but Dogg catches him and hits a Fallaway Slam. Gayfather approaches Dogg, Dogg approaches Gayfather.. they simply stare at each other, neither making an attempt to fight the other...

    Shannan Lerch: Does Gayfather have the balls to fight Dogg?

    We don't have time to find out, as Bobby Dole comes behind Gayfather and throws him out of the ring, and Wreck tackles Dogg's leg. Dogg stands back up and Wreck hits a German Suplex from behind. Bobby Dole gets out of the ring and beats down on Gayfather. He picks him up and gets him in position for a Brainbuster but Gayfather slips behind him and hits the Sodomizer!

    Kyle Steel: Bobby Dole would be out, if they were inside the ring.

    Back in the ring, Creeper and Burn Out are teaming up against Dogg. They pick him up and hit a Double Chokeslam.

    Shannan Lerch: Creeper and Burn Out both need to be careful, they're the last member for each of their teams.

    Torture and Bob are back up, and Torture rolls Bob into the ring. Bob stands up as Torture gets in, and Torture runs at him, Bob ducks, and hits the Zoom In! He pins Torture. One... two.... no! Someone pulled Bob off. It was Seth.

    Kyle Steel: Wow, I forgot he was even here, looks like he's back in the match.

    Bob starts pounding away at Seth, and whips him to the ropes. Seth bounces back and kicks Bob straight in the groin! Bob drops to one knee, and Lerch quickly hits the I Own You. He pins Bob... One, two, three.

    Shannan Lerch: So far Seth's kept his promise, he's making sure the Wifebeaters don't win the Tag Titles.

    Seth raises his arms in the air as Bob rolls out of the ring. Rick enters the arena, runs in, and tackles Lerch down to the mat as he begins throwing lefts and rights to his face. Meanwhile Defman has taken to attacking Wreck, hitting a Bearhug Slam. He then picks Wreck up but Wreck reverses around him and puts him in a Sleeper Hold. Defman drops to one knee, and then to the ground. The crowd soon starts cheering him on...

    Crowd: DEFMAN! DEFMAN!

    Ortega lifts Defman's hand. It falls. Ortega lifts it again... and again, it falls. He lifts it one more time... and no, it doesn't fall this time! Defman slowly stands up, and jabs Wreck several times in the ribs. He then runs behind him and hits the Fading Darkness, going to the outside! He gets up slowly and rolls Wreck into the ring, and pins. One... two.... three. Wreck is out. He rolls out of the ring and heads to the back as David Baker runs in next.

    Kyle Steel: Let's see, from what I can tell... Defman, Torture, Lerch, and Gayfather are the only first members of their teams left.

    Gayfather comes to Madd Dogg's aid and throws Creeper out of the ring. Gayfather then holds Burn Out from behind as Dogg picks his shots, punching Burn Out several times before Gayfather lets go and Dogg hits him with a 90 Degree Stunner! He's about to pin him until Creeper pulls him out of the ring. Torture is now attacking Rick, kicking away at him in a corner. Defman and Lerch have gone back to fighting as well. Defman goes for a German Suplex, but Seth switches around and puts Defman into a Sleeperhold.

    Shannan Lerch: Defman in ANOTHER Sleeper, he was just in one a few moments ago.

    And again, Defman drops to the mat and the crowd begins chanting his name. Ortega lifts his arm... it drops. Ortega lifts his arm again... it drops. Lerch has a cocky look on his face and Ortega lifts Defman's arm again.... and this time, it doesn't drop!

    Kyle Steel: Defman isn't going to be eliminated by some lame Sleeper.

    Apparently, Ortega thinks differently. He motions that Defman has been eliminated. Defman stands up, getting in Ortega's face, pissed about it.

    Kyle Steel: What in the hell is this!? We all saw clearly that Defman did NOT give up and his arm did NOT drop... I think this is what Lerch whispered to Ortega about earlier. Defman is getting screwed.

    Ortega forces Defman to the back, or his whole team will be completely disqualified. Defman is about to leave, and he hears Seth laugh. He turns around and clocks Seth right in the face before rolling out and having Cradle come in to replace him. Cradle and Defman high five, and then Cradle rolls into the ring.

    Shannan Lerch: With Cradle in there, business has just picked up.

    David Baker has begun working away on Gayfather in the ring, while Dogg is brawling with Creeper and Burn Out. Baker kicks Gayfather in the gut and hits a quick DDT, and then pins. One, two, no, kickout. Baker waits for Gayfather to stand, and goes for a Spinning Back Kick, but Gayfather catches it and counters with a Sky High Facebuster! Gayfather then pins Baker... One, two, kickout!

    Kyle Steel: I smell a nice little competition.

    Gayfather climbs to the top rope, and signals for a Dragonrana. Baker stands up, and Gayfather goes for the move, but Baker reverses it into a Sitout Powerbomb. He picks Gayfather up and quickly hits the Xero before pinning him... One, two, three.

    Shannan Lerch: Gayfather has finally been eliminated, I'm impressed with him though.

    Gayfather rolls out, and Neo is the next man to enter!

    Kyle Steel: This leaves Torture as the only guy in the ring that still has a partner to be brought in. For the rest of them, if they're eliminated, that's it.

    Neo gets into the ring with a head of steam, and clotheslines Torture down first, then Baker, then he goes to hit Cradle. Cradle ducks and counters with a few right hands to Neo, and then a Snapmare into Dropkick.

    Shannan Lerch: That's called a Spinal Tap.

    Cradle then turns, and notices Rick Mad and Seth Lerch brawling near the ropes. Cradle runs at them and hits a Double Clothesline, sending all three men flying over the top rope. Neo approaches Torture, who is beginning to stand up, and hits a Back Hand, sending him back down. Neo backs up, waiting as Torture groggily begins standing up, and then runs and hits the Hating You! Neo quickly pins, hooking the leg. One! Two! Three!

    Kyle Steel: Torture is finally eliminated, and now it's time for Death.

    Torture rolls out of the ring, and flips Neo off as he walks to the back. Death runs out, runs around the ring to where Mad is, picks him up, and quickly hits a Rolling Death out of nowhere. Death rolls Rick into the ring and pins him quickly... One, two, three!

    Shannan Lerch: I don't believe it! The Wifebeaters are the first full team to be eliminated!

    Rick Mad rolls out of the ring, infuriated. We can see him yelling various obscenities at Death, and he starts kicking the ring steps and guardrail and whatever he can find.

    Kyle Steel: Rick is out of control! I know if there was anyone he WOULDN'T want to be eliminated by, it's Death, but still.

    Bob the Cameraman runs out to try to calm Rick down, but it's to no avail. Rick is still pissed for a few moments, but eventually he calms down. Him and Bob begin walking to the back, but all of a sudden he quickly runs back to the ring and gets a mic.

    Rick Mad: You're a dirty son of a bitch, Death, and you are too, Lerch. You got your goddamned wish, the Wifebeaters are not going to be WCF Tag Team Champions. But you fucking know what? I'M OUT OF THIS GOD FORSAKEN FEDERATION. Me and Bob are taking our ball elsewhere, we don't need your bullshit.

    Rick throws the mic into the crowd, before giving the fans the finger. He then writes out letters in the air. The letters read "U... W... F".

    Shannan Lerch: Does that mean what I think it means? Rick and Bob are leaving for Gravedigger's federation!?

    Kyle Steel: That's exactly what it means, Shannan.

    Rick and Bob begin walking to the back again, but Rick turns around once more...

    Rick Mad: Oh, I forgot one thing. I don't care about your rules, Lerch, I have one more partner. He really doesn't care about anything more than kicking your ass... have fun.

    The lights go out. We can hear confusion all through the ring, and we can also hear most of the wrestlers that were fighting get out of it. When the lights come back on, Seth is the only one standing in the ring... besides the man known as Creeping Death.

    Kyle Steel: Uh oh.

    Creeping Death is holding a small Christmas tree. This is no ordinary Christmas tree, it's decorated with Barbed Wire, in addition to the normal Christmas balls and whatnot it would have. Creeping Death smashes Seth Lerch right in the face with the tree, and Seth goes down to the mat, bleeding profusely from the face.

    Creeping Death: Oops.. I forgot the lights.

    Creeping Death rolls out of the ring and pulls two florescent light tubes out from it. He rolls back in, and smashes then both on Seth's skull. The crowd chants "HOLY SHIT!" as Creeping Death raises his arms in the air, gets out of the ring, and walks to the back. Paramedics run out quickly and get Seth out of the ring, carrying him to the back.

    Shannan Lerch: Ahhh! I hope he's going to be OK....

    Kyle Steel: Somehow, I doubt it.

    Yet another voice is heard now.

    Voice: Seth forgot to mention, he DID find a partner... the Ultimate partner.

    Steve Carr runs out from the back! All of the Explosion match participants have gotten back in the ring, and Carr rolls in to join them. He hits hard right hands on whomever he can!

    Kyle Steel: STEVE CARR IS BACK! What a surprise!

    Carr begins fighting with PC Cradle. Meanwhile, Creeper and Burn Out fight Neo and Dogg as Baker and Bobby Dole are going at it. Death goes around, attacking whoever presents the opportunity to be attacked. Baker and Dole are in a corner. Baker picks Dole up onto it, and is going for a Superplex. Dole jabs Baker in the ribs a few times, and then pushes him off. Baker quickly stands up and Dole flies off the top rope with a Double Axe Handle but Baker counters with a Dropkick to his chest! Dole goes down to the mat, and Baker stomps on him a bit. Dole begins standing up, and Baker backs away a bit. He then runs at him and hits the Sever! Baker pins. One. Two. Three.

    Shannan Lerch: Hal Demango and Bobby Dole are done.

    Dogg has just hit a Turnbuckle Bomb on Creeper. He and Neo begin stomping away at Burn Out, and they pick him up. He begins fighting back, throwing a punch to Dogg and then a punch to Neo, but it's not enough. Dogg grabs him and gets him in a Piledriver position, and Neo climbs the turnbuckle. They hit a Super Spike Piledriver! Dogg pins Burn Out. One... two... Creeper dives out of nowhere and breaks up the pin.

    Kyle Steel: That was horribly close.

    Neo kicks away on Creeper with no mercy. He then drops and punches Creeper in the face a few times. Dogg picks Creeper up and holds him as Neo goes to the other side of the ring. Neo runs at Creeper, Dogg quickly moves out of the way, and Neo hits the Hating You! Dogg quickly hits the Dogg Pound on Burn Out, and Neo pins Creeper the same time Dogg pins Burn Out. One.. One... Two... Two... Three... Three.

    Shannan Lerch: Two teams eliminated at the same time. The Monster Squad is gone, as is the Dreadnoks. Not a good day for the Headhunters.

    Cradle and Carr are still brawling as well. Carr whips Cradle into the ropes, and hits a Big Boot. Cradle goes down, and Carr climbs to the top rope. He goes for a Flying Elbow Drop, but Cradle rolls out of the way. Carr stumbles to his feet and Cradle knees him in the stomach several times and then hits a big Right Arm Clothesline. Carr goes to the mat, and Cradle locks in a Single Leg Boston Crab. As that's locked in, David Baker approaches Carr and starts kicking his back, trying to get him to tap out. Carr refuses, although all this pain is obviously taking its toll. Seeing that Carr isn't going to tap, Baker runs to the ropes and hits a Bulldog on Cradle. Death begins stomping away on Cradle as well, and soon Neo and Madd Dogg are as well.

    Kyle Steel: Everyone left in this match is trying to eliminate Cradle. This isn't good for the Tag Champ.

    Shannan Lerch: I'm pretty sure we're going to have new Tag Champs, Kyle.

    Carr climbs to the top rope, and Neo picks Cradle up. Dogg hits the Dogg Pound on him, and Carr flies off the top rope and hits the Ultimatum! Carr pins him, and Davey Ortega drops to count.

    One!

    Two!

    Kickout!

    But Davey counts the Three.

    Kyle Steel: Ortega's done it again! He's screwed the Tag Champions out of their Titles!

    Ortega signals that Cradle has been eliminated. Carr picks Cradle up and throws him out of the ring. Dogg and Neo turn their attention next to Baker, as Death and Carr go at it. Dogg and Neo throw punch after punch at Baker, who eventually goes down. Neo picks Baker up and holds him as Dogg hits the 90 Degree Stunner. Neo picks Baker up and hits a Double Arm DDT, and then pins him. One. Two. Three.

    Shannan Lerch: Wreck and Baker have lost their chance at the Tag Titles as well.

    Kyle Steel: And we're down to the final four. Death, Steve Carr, Neo, and Madd Dogg.

    Shannan Lerch: I just realized, Neo and Dogg have such a huge advantage since they're helping each other.

    Neo and Dogg look at Death and Carr. Death and Carr nod at each other, signalling a temporary alliance. Death and Carr Clothesline Neo and Dogg down to the mat, and then start stomping away at them!

    Kyle Steel: If Carr and Death can stop Neo and Dogg from using teamwork, they'll be able to make things fair again.

    Neo gets up and Carr starts kicking him with various karate kicks. Neo eventually catches one of them and spins Carr around, going for a Clothesline, Carr ducks, Neo turns around, Carr hits a Northern Lights Suplex into pin. Ortega counts, rather quickly.. One, two, NO, Neo kicks out. Carr stands up as Neo does and Neo runs at him, going for a Hating You!, but Carr sidesteps it. Neo is sent flying into the turnbuckle. Carr picks Neo up and hits a Backbreaker. Carr pins Neo... one, two... No, Neo kicks out again!

    Shannan Lerch: Neo just won't let himself be pinned.

    Dogg and Death have been brawling back and forth for the last few minutes. Death finally gains the upperhand, and hits a Fireman Carry Roll Slam. Death then stomps on his legs a few times before locking in the Sharpshooter. Dogg crawls to the ropes, trying to get out of it, but he can't. He won't tap, either. Death soon releases the hold. He picks Dogg up and goes for a Body Press Slam, but Dogg slides down behind him and hits a German Suplex. Dogg then looks towards Neo and Carr, runs at Carr, and Lariats him down.

    Kyle Steel: Death and Carr were doing a good job keeping them apart... until now.

    Neo and Dogg go on the attack, kicking away at Carr. Dogg picks him up and hits a Shoulder Neckbreaker, and then applies the Trampling Clutch. Carr yells out in pain, but it's no use. After a few seconds of agony, Carr yells that he gives up. Dogg releases the hold, and Carr rolls out of the ring. He collapses on the ground, and after a little begins getting up to go to the back.

    Shannan Lerch: Death is kind of screwed. It's turned into a handicapped match now.

    Death stands up, and Dogg and Neo approach him. He looks at both of them, and motions for them to "bring it". They start attacking him, beating him down, but he soon manages to power out and push them away. Dogg runs at him and is met with a Big Boot, Neo runs at him and Death picks him up in a Sidewalk Slam. Death then climbs up the turnbuckle.. and signals for the Deathstar.

    Kyle Steel: That move is horribly dangerous for a man his size to do...

    He points to Dogg, and flies off the turnbuckle, hitting the move! Ortega makes the count. One. Two. Three!

    Shannan Lerch: Guess it's NOT a handicapped match, Dogg is eliminated!

    Death throws Dogg out of the ring. Dogg curses a bit as he walks to the back. Death stands, waiting for Neo to stand up. As he does, Neo looks around, wondering where Dogg is, until he sees him walking to the back. He then looks at Death with intensity in his eyes.

    Kyle Steel: It's down to this, Neo against Death. Either Neo and Gayfather or Death and Torture are going to be the WCF Tag Team Champions.

    Neo and Death approach each other, and tie up. Death pushes Neo off, showing his power. Neo walks right back up to him, and they tie up again. This time Neo pushes Death into a corner, and Ortega tells him to back off. He does so, but then slaps Death right in the face. Death tackles Neo and starts pounding away at him, but Neo reverses it so he's on top of Death and starts throwing fists at him as well. The two soon get up, run at each other, and Death Clotheslines Neo down. Neo gets right back up, runs at Death, ducks a Clothesline, bounces off the ropes and heads back towards Death, goes for a Clothesline of his own, Death ducks it, gets behind Neo, and hits a Reverse DDT. He then locks in another Sharpshooter.

    Shannan Lerch: Great exchange of offense.

    Neo yells in pain, and tries crawling to the rope.. He can't. He continues trying anyway, and actually does soon start to make it.. he's a few inches away.. but Death pulls him back to the middle of the ring. Neo continues screaming, but with one last ditch effort, lunges towards the ropes. He makes it. Death releases the hold, but goes right back on the attack on Neo's leg. He picks it up and then throws it back down to the mat. Neo clutches it and screams out. Death then picks him up and throws him to the ropes. Neo comes back with an elbow to Death's head!

    Kyle Steel: Can Neo mount a comeback?

    Neo hits Death a few times, but Death angrily hits Neo back and hits the Fade to Black!

    Shannan Lerch: Guess not.

    Death pins Neo, hooking the leg.

    One.

    Two.

    No!

    Neo somewhere finds the strength to kick out! Death picks Neo up and starts punching at him again, but Neo is soon able to punch Death back. Neo punches Death a few times, then kicks him in the gut and hits an Impact DDT! He then goes to one of the corners, and crouches down. He waits for Death to stand up, and turn towards him... runs.. and hits the Hating You! Death goes down hard, and Neo quickly covers him, hooking the leg.

    One!

    Two!

    Three!

    Neo stands up and raises his arms in the air as Davey Ortega hands him the Tag Title. Gayfather prances out from the back and is handed the other Tag Title. Death stands up, in a daze, and rolls out of the ring.

    Kyle Steel: Wait, let me understand.. we have a Nazi and a blatantly homosexual man as Tag Team Champions together!? This has to be the most bizarre thing I've ever seen.

    Shannan Lerch: I don't know, but this is a good day for Madd Dogg's little group. He becomes Television Champion, Neo and Gayfather win the Tag Titles, and Trent Hunter made an appearance.

    Gayfather and Neo both hold their Tag Titles in the air to a surprising pop from the crowd.

    Kyle Steel: Fans, I'll see you at WCF History 101.

    Shannan Lerch: And I'll see you at the first Slam of 2004!

    Kyle Steel: Goodnight.

    We go back to Kyle and Shannan one last time.

    Shannan Lerch: And there you have it. The history of WCF up until right now. We left out a lot of stuff, but we covered as much as we could. Hell, we covered a lot more than we expected to.

    Kyle Steel: We'll see you in 2004! Goodnight everybody!

    The show fades out.
