Ultimate Showdown Intro
Repeaterbeater by Mew hits and one of WCF's biggest PPVs of the year, Ultimate Showdown, is on the air! The crowd roars in anticipation and hold up their signs high in the air. Pyro bursts from the stage and ring area before we go to our announcers for the evening.
Shannan Lerch: Fans, welcome to WCF ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN! I wish Zach Davis was with us to announce what is sure to be one of WCF's best shows to date.
Kyle Steel: But we do have me, Kyle Steel, and.. yeah. Luscious Jackson.
Luscious Jackson: Damn diggity.
Shannan Lerch: We have a main event that truly lives up to the Ultimate Showdown name; Johnny Reb versus Dake Ken for the WCF World Title.
Kyle Steel: For MONTHS these men have battled. Johnny Reb has defeated Dake Ken, Dake Ken has defeated Johnny Reb. These two men are evenly matched, period.
Luscious Jackson: One big difference now though, dawgs: Now Dake Ken is the man with the belt, and that changes everythin'!
Kyle Steel: This is true. Before, they were focusing on getting to Torture, defeating Torture, taking Torture's belt. Now, Reb is focused solely on beating Dake, and Dake is focused on keeping the WCF World Title. Truly, the most important belt in the sport today.
Shannan Lerch: And remember, this is the first match of the WCF Championship Series. Reb is Dake Ken's first opponent. Up until Revenge, Dake will be facing a World Title contender every single week.
Luscious Jackson: And don't forget, also, Johnny Reb vs Dake Ken will be taking place as a LADDER MATCH, yall. No pins, no submissions, just climbin' that ladder and grabbing the belt.
Kyle Steel: The only way to take possession of the belt is to beat your opponent senseless enough so that you can climb up and grab it... and one man will do just that.
Shannan Lerch: And in our second main event, and definitely ANOTHER match that says Ultimate Showdown to me... Rick Mad, one on one with Torture.
Luscious Jackson: This is going to be a hell of a match. A streetfight. Someone's gonna get killed.
Kyle Steel: Rick Mad turned on Torture months ago. He then used Mikami to attack Torture as well. And, finally, once Rick revealed himself... he was the first one on Torture's hit list, and Torture viciously beat him down.
Shannan Lerch: Viciously is the right word, for sure. Rick has been in the hospital for weeks.. but now he's ready for this street fight.
Luscious Jackson: Tonight we've got our first Tag Titles match, Exodus is up against The Superfans!
Kyle Steel: At one time we expected to see Gravedigger vs Madd Dogg tonight, but that all changed. And this match is an epic one too. Exodus declared themselves the best WCF tag team in history and said there was no one to stop them.. and here came the Superfans. Seth gave them the Tag Titles to mess with Gravedigger, I think. But the Superfans are going to prove themself by facing Exodus tonight.
Shannan Lerch: And after the Superfans mimicked Exodus last week.. there is going to be hell to pay.
Luscious Jackson: We also got a huge US Title match tonight, four of the top challengers from the last few months together in one ring. Mikami, Ryan Daniels, D-Day, and Slickie T.
Kyle Steel: That'll be a great one. Mikami and Slickie T are two superstars on the cusp of main event stardom. Ryan Daniels is WCF's most underrated superstar, and D-Day? Well, he's D-Day!
Shannan Lerch: We have a huge grudge match, with Apollo Griffin fighting Tank Reaper. Tank and Apollo's former girl, Matroshka, got together. Apollo tried to get her back, she said no...and he attacked her. Tank isn't too happy.
Luscious Jackson: And I hear we're running out of time in our introduction here, so Kyle, take us through the rest of the matches!
Kyle Steel: Avery up against Anthrax, the Breathtakers debuting against Petrova and Havoc, and Doc Henry up against Captain Jack Dancer!
Shannan Lerch: Let's get to it!
Doc Henry vs Captain Jack Dancer
Lights dim, to an orange glow as if at sunrise, as music starts.
With the main guitar riff, Doc enters the arena in a light haze.
As lyrics start, he slowly raises his head looking into the ring, raising his hands up for a slow pop. Lights fade up as he does this.
I wake up in the morning
And I raise my weary head
I got an old coat for a pillow
And the earth was last nights bed
Doc proceeds to the ring high fiving the crowd.
Only God knows where Ive been
Im a devil on the run
A six gun lover
A candle in the wind
Walking up the steps and ducks under the top rope. Pumping his fists and getting the crowd riled, he fist pumps facing all four sides.
When youre brought into this world
They say youre born in sin
Well at least they gave me something
I didnt have to steal or have to win
Well they tell me that Im wanted
Yeah Im a wanted man
Gallantly removes hat and saddle coat before extinguishing cigarette on ring post.
Im colt in your stable
Im what cain was to abel
Mister catch me if you can
Im going down in a blaze of glory...
Luscious Jackson: Our openin' match of the evening, and here is Doc Henry!
A pirateish howl fills the arena, "Poker Face" plays. Jack Dancer and Lucy prance to the top of the stage, hands gripped on the handles of the swords pushed into their side hostlers. Ready for battle they prance moar down the ramp, sliding into the ring, relinquishing their plastic weapons to officials.
Kyle Steel: And... Captain Jack Dancer. The pirate.
Shannan Lerch: I don't know. For some reason, I kind of like him.
The bell rings and the match is on! Dancer is busy waving at Lucy outside the ring, and the dog just stands around looking at him contentedly. Doc hits him with a few forearms from behind and then throws him to the ropes before hitting a Back Bodydrop. Dancer gets up and goes for a Clothesline, Doc ducks it and hits a German Suplex!
Luscious Jackson: Good move!
He keeps it bridged for the pin.
Kyle Steel: Can't keep a good pirate down.
Doc picks Dancer back up, and Lucy is barking angrily from the outside. Hearing her seems to inspire Dancer, and he hits Doc with several shots to the head. Doc reels back, and Dancer executes a standing Hurricanrana, flipping and resulting in a pin on Doc!
Kyle Steel: Dancer almost had a win here!
Dancer gets up and slides to the apron. He waits for Doc Henry to get up, then Springboards, but Henry moves out of the way! Dancer crashes to the mat and stumbles back to his feet, Henry grabs him and hits the Gambler's Hand!
Shannan Lerch: That's his setup, now he's going to go for his finisher..
Henry climbs to the top rope... and flies off with a Shooting Star Press!
Luscious Jackson: He's All In!
This results in a pin of course.
Kyle Steel: Doc Henry gets the win here tonight!
Doc stands up and smirks as he gets his arm raised and leaves the ring. Lucy barks at him.
The Breathtakers vs Havoc/Anastasia Petrova
Kyle Steel: Welcome back fans it's time for the next match.
Shannan Lerch: It's going to be a tag match with the debuting Breathtakers against the rather odd tandem of Havoc and Anastasia Petrova.
"Taking It To The Top", by Silver Ice hits and Chris and Brandon appears on the ramp, accompanied by Wendy. They strike a pose for a few seconds - the Breathtakers down on one knee pointing towards the ring, Wendy standing behind them, hands on their shoulders,- and run to the ring, exchanging high fives with the fans on the way. They slide under the bottom rope and Brandon and Chris mount the turnbuckle pointing into the crowd and crossing their hands in front of them in a Lightning X-press taunt, while Wendy leads the applause.
Shannan Lerch: Wow, the crowd really taking a liking to these young up and comers.
Kyle Steel: I'm taking a liking to them as well that's a really catchy beat, and Wendy is a dazzling beauty.
Shannan Lerch: Keep it in your pants Steel.
Na Rasputye by Kipelov plays and the lights turn red as Anastasia Petrova prances about the stage. She goes to the ring and says hi to the fans and blows them kisses while shaking her booty! The fans are cheering her and her booty on!
Kyle Steel: Now this is the action I'm talking about I think Miss Petrova has a bright future in...in...where are we again?
Shannan Lerch: WCF. Anyway Anastasia while not successful in her first match here at WCF was neither defeated either as Havoc, her partner beat Doc Henry.
Luscious Jackson: This Anastasia Petrova chick has a bright future.. in my pants.
"I Want it All" by Queen hits the P.A's as Havoc emerges from the entrance way to a chorus of boos. He brushes some of his hair out of his eyes and slowly makes his way to the ring, never taking his eyes off the Breathtakers. He slides in the ring and goes over to his corner not paying attention to Anastasia shaking her booty still. (It's alot of booty shaking, basically)
Kyle Steel: Now this should be interesting the Breathtakers both saying they don't want to hit a girl, but it looks like Petrova is gonna start things off.
Shannan Lerch: I wonder how this will play out....let's watch.
Luscious Jackson: Oh I'll watch all right!
Shannan Lerch: Pig.
Petrova and Brandon start things off with a collar and elbow tie up. Petrova using her speed quickly takes Brandon down with an arm drag. Right as Brandon gets back up she takes him down with another arm drag, and then a big drop kick.
Kyle Steel: Petrova with some quick offense and the crowd is loving it.
Petrova goes for another drop kick but Brandon moves as she goes crashing to the mat. Brandon picks her up and puts her in a side headlock.
Shannan Lerch: She went to the well one to many times with the dropkick and Brandon took advantage.
Brandon takes her over to their corner and tags in Chris, who hops the top rope and gives her a big European Uppercut which sends Petrova onto her butt. He quickly hits off the ropes and hits her with a dropkick all while apologizing to her. He goes for a cover.
Luscious Jackson: 1..2..No. It's still to early for this one to be over!
Shannan Lerch: Anastasia is still too feisty for a 3 count.
Chris lifts her up into a front chansery and tags in Brandon who immeadately goes off the ropes as the Breathtakers hit the Glare Ice. Brandon goes right for the pin. 1...2...Havoc is in there to break it up.
Kyle Steel: Havoc in there with a smart move, that might have just put Ana down for the count.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe and now Wendy giving Havoc a piece of her mind as he goes back...OH MY. Havoc just told Wendy she was number one in his book with that middle finger.
Chris yells at Havoc as well, but Havoc is back in his corner. Brandon whips Ana off and goes for a back elbow, but she ducks it allowing Havoc to make a blind tag it. Brandon ducks down trying for a back bodydrop but Ana kicks him up and moves as Havoc plows him over with a clothesline. Havoc stands over him and starts mouthing off to him.
Luscious Jackson: Havoc telling Brandon that he should have listened to him and gone to college.
Shannan Lerch: Well after a clothesline like that I would listen to him.
Havoc lifts Brandon up by his ear and lifts him up for a suplex. Havoc holds him up there as the blood rushes to Brandon's head. Finally he drops him hard down to the mat and covers. 1..2..no Brandon kicks out. Havoc stands up and puts his foot over Brandon's throat the ref begins to count as Chris starts to make his way into the ring. Havoc lets up as the ref goes to stop Chris from getting in. Havoc immeadiately goes back to the choke as the ref is busy with Chris and now Wendy who has hopped up to tell the ref what's going on. Right before the ref turns around Havoc lets off the choke and drops an elbow.
Shannan Lerch: Havoc is just a big bully choking Brandon while the ref's back is turned. I tell you what.
Kyle Steel: Havoc smartly letting up on the choke right before the ref could catch him and Petrova doesn't look to happy about her partners tactics so far.
Havoc sits up Brandon and gives him a hard kick up the spine, and then another one. Brandon grabs his back as Havoc lifts him up and drives him down onto his knee with a back breaker. He doesn't let go, instead lifts him up again and drives him onto his knee. He pushes down on his chest and thigh with Brandon still across his knee.
Kyle Steel: Havoc is trying to break Brandon in half. He's doing exactly what he said he would do and that's hurt him. Come on Brandon fight back.
After holding him there for a minute Havoc lets up and drags him by the hair to the corner and tags in Petrova. He motions to keep beating on Brandon's back, but Ana hits a leg drop across the chest and throat and then another one. Havoc yells at her to stay on the back. Ana picks up Brandons and whips him against the ropes, she goes for a back body drop but Brandon hits a desperate sunset flip.
Shannan Lerch: Sunset Flip out of no-where. 1..2..No she kicks out. Brandon is crawling towards his corner. You can make it Brandon.
Kyle Steel: YES Brandon makes the tag. Chris is in...but wait the ref is forcing him out..What?
Luscious Jackson: That damned Havoc had the ref's attention so he missed the tag.
Ana slowly makes her way to her feet as the ref is still trying to get Chris out of the ring. Havoc gets in and pulls Brandon back to the middle of the ring and claps his hands together. He tells Petrova to get out of the ring, which she begrudgingly does. Havoc then starts to stomp on Brandon's back. Yelling at him between stomps. He lifts up Brandon and hits a big T-Bone Suplex and goes for the cover.
Shannan Lerch: T-Bone could do it..1...2...No Chris is in he makes the save.
Kyle Steel: Chris might have just saved the match for his childhood friend.
Luscious Jackson: This is one damn exciting tag matchup!
As the ref tries to get Chris out Havoc claps his hands together and tells Petrova to get in. But this time she is refusing. Havoc yells at her to get in the ring, ignoring Brandon who is crawling towards Chris.
Shannan Lerch: Havoc had better pay attention to Brandon who is crawling towards Chris.
Kyle Steel: The crowd is right behind Brandon. Chanting his name.
The crowd explodes as Brandon tags in Chris. He makes his way to the top rope as Ana points behind Havoc. Havoc turns and is hit with missle drop kick. Havoc quickly staggers back to his feet as Chris hits a jumping calf kick, followed by another. Chris hops up onto the top rope and hits a top rope splash.
Shannan Lerch: WOW! Chris is really on fire! Big top rope splash he covers. 1..2..Havoc kicks out, oh but as soon as he does Brandon hits a top rope splash of his own.
Kyle Steel: That the Switch, Brandon now with the cover. 1..2..No Anastasia breaks it up.
Luscious Jackson: Lots of nearfalls y'all!
Brandon rolls away as Chris charges at Anastasia who gives him a drop toe hold into the middle rope. She starts clapping and shaking her booty and the fans start to clap with her. She runs off the ropes and connects with the 619. The crowd roars in approval. She springboards in looking to connect with a big hurricanrana on Chris.
Kyle Steel: Here we go this could be it, WAIT A MINUTE. Havoc just caught his own teammate..What's he doing?
Shannan Lerch: I don't know I've never seen that done before.
Havoc powerbombs Anastasia down onto Chris and goes for a cover. 1..2....3!
Shannan Lerch: NO Chris kicked out at the last second.Whew OH MY GAWD THIS IS INTENSE.
Kyle Steel: Here comes Brandon, he has Anastasia lined up and OH MAN!
Once again Anastasia is sent flying out of the ring by a superkick. Brandon turns around and is caught by Havoc with a lung blower. Havoc rolls back and charges forward with the yakuza, but Brandon moves and Havoc hits into the corner hard. Brandon calls for Chris, as Chris charges forward he leaps off Brandon in the air.
Shannan Lerch: Here it is the Lightning X-Press.
Luscious Jackson: What a sweet name for a move.
As Chris takes flight off Brandon Anastasia springboards in and catches him mid air with the Rasputin. Brandon turns around and is met with a superkick from Havoc, knocking him out. Anastasia calls for Havoc to cover Chris, but Havoc locks on the Ego Breaker. Chris screams in pain and finally taps out.
Kyle Steel: What a dick move by Havoc all he had to do was pin Chris, instead he wanted to inflict more pain on that young man and forced him to tap out.
Shannan Lerch: Havoc is a real ass, he hasn't even broken the hold. COME ON REF MAKE HIM BREAK IT!
Havoc finally lets go of the hold and looks around. The crowd boos him as he makes his way to the back. Anastasia checks on Chris and Brandon as the crowd gives them a big ovation for the effort.
Chris Avery vs Anthrax
No Disqualification Match
The lights flicker on and off and Metallica's Cyanide kicks through the airwaves. Anthrax steps outs through the smoke but stops on the edge of the ramp. Colton stands with him and both men do the same taunt; both hands in the air with a very mean face. Colt leads Anthrax down the ramp and into the ring. Colton makes sure everyone knows that Anthrax is here to fight.
Luscious Jackson: Looks like Anthrax is here to fight.
Kyle Steel: Yes, it does.
The lights go out and Let It Rock by Kevin Rudolf blares through the sound system. The crowd goes crazy as Avery walks out on stage from behind the curtain. Avery flips back his hood on his black sweatshirt and smiles at the crowd. They cheer louder. Avery slaps five with some fans and slides in to the ring.
Shannan Lerch: I just can't help it, this song makes me rock out!
Just as she says that though, Colton shoves Avery into the corner and Anthrax begins a lethal beat down. Anthrax demands Colton to get some weapons, and the ref rings the bell!
Kyle Steel: This match has officially started, and we want to remind you, it's a no-DQ match so Yes, Colton is grabbing weapons, and yes, it's perfectly legal.
Colton throws a trashcan, and it's lid, a baseball bat, a cookie sheet, and a biker chain into the ring. Anthrax keeps punching away at Avery. Colton slides in and starts with punches as Anthrax goes and grabs the cookie sheet! Colton backs up and Avery walks out of the corner and gets a cookie sheet right to the head! Avery goes down. Colton grabs the cookie sheet and smacks it across Avery's head once more! Then he throws it to the outside. Anthrax picks up Avery and hits a scoop body slam, and grabs the biker chain. Anthrax wraps it around his fist and kneels over Chris Avery. He cocks his hand back and goes for a punch but Avery dodges it while laying out, and Anthrax punches the ring mat! Crowd cheers as Avery nips up and tosses an oncoming Colton out of the ring. Anthrax turns around and Chris Avery hits him with the baseball bat in the midsection, before nailing it across his back, then smacking him on the butt with it causing him to go headfirst through the ropes out of the ring. Colton helps Anthrax up, when Avery leaps over the top rope and lands on both of them!
Kyle Steel: The athleticism! The charisma! It's what makes Chris Avery awesome!
Avery stands up and throws Anthrax back into the ring. He slides in and gives a running bulldog to Anthrax. Avery picks up the baseball bat and turns and hits Colton in the head with it as he was trying to get on the apron! Colton falls back down. Avery drops the bat out of the ring and picks up the garbage can. He drops it over Anthrax who just stood up, and Anthrax can't get out of it, nor see out of it. Avery picks up the biker chain and starts swinging it around above his head, he swings it and connects to the garbage can which causes Anthrax to get riled up. Anthrax begins to run around the ring blindly, until he crashes right into the ring posts. Anthrax dazed in the corner, Avery finds the chance to run and hit a leaping splash into the garbage canned Anthrax! Avery slides the can off and then nails Anthrax on the top of the head causing him to be laid out. Avery slides out of the ring and looks under the ring.
Shannan Lerch: A lot of weapons can be found under there.
Luscious Jackson: I lived under there once.
Kyle Steel: Does NOT surprise me.
Shannan Lerch: Avery is bringing out a table!
Avery sets up a table on the outside of the ring and then slides back into the ring. Avery picks up Anthrax and hits a belly to belly suplex, but doesn't let go of him. From the ground, Avery floats over, rolls Anthrax to his stomach, then from behind on the ground, Avery locks on a choke hold and tries to choke out Anthrax. Avery believes he's done enough damage so he lets go, and picks up the near lifeless Anthrax and throws him to the corner. Avery picks up Anthrax and puts him on the top rope. Avery climbs up right in front of Anthrax and taunts to the crowd. The crowd yells in unison with Avery "LET! IT! ROCK!". Colton jumps to the apron and shoves Avery off the ropes and Avery falls to the outside through the table he set up! The crowd gasps! Colton pulls Anthrax off the ropes.
Kyle Steel: Whoa! Avery crashed through the table and out of nowhere Colton with the save!
Shannan Lerch: Anthrax needs to capitalize on this opportunity.
Luscious Jackson: That's why he has Colton! He's the brains of this operations.
Kyle Steel: Double true.
Colton slides out of the ring and picks up Avery through the table rubble and throws him into the ring. Anthrax picks up Avery and hits the Lethal-izer! Anthrax pins.
Shannan Lerch: Avery kicks out!
Kyle Steel: That was a close one!
Anthrax gets frustrated and demands Colton to get a chair. Anthrax picks up Avery and slams him around a bit before Colt slides in with the chair. Anthrax throws the chair down on the mat and then hits Avery with the "Torque!" right on the chair! Avery is out. Anthrax pins again. Colton counts with the ref!
Kyle Steel: Avery kicks out again! What a fighter!
Shannan Lerch: Avery not giving up yet.
Anthrax, again frustrated, argues with the ref to count faster, and even Colton demands the ref to fix his counting-ways. Anthrax picks Avery up and throws him to the corner. Anthrax runs, but Avery gets his foot up and nails it on the chin of Anthrax, and in that same motion, Avery floats over the top rope, lands on the apron then quickly climbs on the top rope. Avery leaps through the air, Anthrax ducks, and Colton nails Avery over the head with a steel chair just as he landed. Anthrax pins, and Colton lays on top of Anthrax to make sure Avery doesn't kick up.
Shannan Lerch: Aww man! It's over. Anthrax picks up the win over Avery.
Luscious Jackson: Kind of a fast match don't ya think?
Kyle Steel: Anthrax wanted to get it over with, and I can't blame him. Avery is one to use momentum, and Anthrax has been known to be out of breath rather quickly in his recent bouts.
Shannan Lerch: Either way here, Colton is turning Anthrax into a winner. Slowly but surely.
Kyle Steel: Avery just couldn't overcome the numbers game. He always had two against one.
Anthrax and Colton taunt in the middle of the ring while the ref helps Avery out of the ring. Metallica blasts over the speakers as Anthrax and Colton look very satisfied in their win. They walk up to the bank as Ultimate Showdown continues..
Apollo Griffin vs Tank Reaper
"All non-believers stand aside in fear...
a new day is marching through the door..."
Apollo enters the stage from behind the curtain
"How could you ever think you might get here?...
Did it bleed?
was it sore?
Through all the struggles you've endured.
You've come so far from innocence,
provided only consequence,
only what does it matter now?"
Apollo gets to the base of the ramp and points to the stars. fire works shoot down mimicking falling stars. and explode near him on stage. As the star pyro touches down on stage Apollo leaps forward and sprints to the ring.
"Cause you're coming home,
you're running free.
As only you would be
if you never owed them anything
and now you've found your way out
In the trust you've seen, the path on home"
Apollo slides across the edge of the ring, climbing the turnbuckle halfway up on the outside. He looks out to the crowd, points at all of the fans in attendance, then points up and hops into the ring.
Luscious Jackson: This is my boy.
Shannan Lerch: You would say something like that.
Kyle Steel: Apollo has been on some sort of streak. Not exactly winning, but not really losing either.
Shannan Lerch: He has a large task right now with Tank Reaper. A man he's been gunning for.
Kyle Steel: Remember Shannan, Apollo wanted this match, so he knows full-well what he's getting into!
Fireworks explode on the ramp, and everyone quickly turns their attention to it. Sympathy by Non Divine hits the speakers and the crowd goes nuts. Tank Reaper walks slowly out on the stage putting both arms in the air ala Stone Cold Steve Austin. The crowd again reaches their feet and cheers for their new favorite wrestler. Tank walks down the ramp pointing to his opponent in the ring and then pointing to the crowd for the approval of his fan base. Tank reaches the ring, where he pulls himself up onto the apron, and then steps his seven foot body over the ropes. Flashbulbs light from every which direction for the simple fact that Tank is one hell of an athlete to look at. Tank taunts one more time in the center of the ring for good measure. Fireworks explode off the ring posts and Tank's music stops.
Shannan Lerch: The ladies love Tank, and now he actually respects them as human beings.
Luscious Jackson: So do I.. mm..
Kyle Steel: That's not exactly respecting them, and don't touch Shannan.
Luscious Jackson: Sorry.
Shannan Lerch: Better be.
Tank turns around and Apollo begins a beat down on the back of Tank. The ref asks for the bell to ring, as Apollo grabs Tank and throws him face first on the top turnbuckle.
Kyle Steel: Wow! Apollo starting things out fast!
Shannan Lerch: And with good measure!
Apollo throws Tank to the opposite corner where Tank rebounds out of but as Apollo goes for a clothesline Tank catches his arm, and stops the entire motion. Apollo looks at Tank, and Tank smiles. Tank then throws Apollo over the top rope and to the outside with his arm. Tank taunts then exits the ring. Apollo is now using the apron of the ring to get to his feet and walking away from Tank. Reaper finally catches up with him, but Apollo turns around and hits a kick to the knee of Tank. Another kick to the same knee. And a third kick to that knee causes Tank to go down to one knee. Tank holds his knee just as Apollo delivers a stiff kick to the head of Reaper! Tank falls to the mats and Apollo catches his breathe.
Kyle Steel: Holy damn! Tank might be out!
Luscious Jackson: Ladies Love Cool Tank!
Shannan Lerch: Jackson, shut up.
Apollo lifts up Tank to his feet and lifts up his upper body to the ring apron. Then Apollo uses all his muscle and energy to lifting up his legs to the apron. He shoves him into the ring under the ropes. Apollo then leaps to the apron and gets in. Apollo lifts up Tank to his knees and while he's just sitting there Apollo hits a dropkick to the face of Tank causing him to go back to sitting in the corner! Apollo gets up and starts chest-kicks in the corner, one kick after another, five, six, seven, eight kicks, nine and ten kicks for good measure. The crowd completely boo's Apollo, and he doesn't give on shit. Even as far as flipping them off.
Shannan Lerch: Wow. Apollo just wants to hurt Tank.
Kyle Steel: I believe Apollo has been on the losing end of a raw deal once or twice. He might be getting revenge for it.
Luscious Jackson: Frank Da Tank!
Shannan Lerch: Shut. Up.
Apollo taunts in the center of the ring and turns around. Tank still in the corner on his ass. Apollo walks over there, and Tank slides down a bit, then uses both legs to shove Apollo by using his legs in Apollo's chest, and lifts Apollo off his feet and shoves him backwards in the air to his ass! Tank lifts himself up just as Apollo gets to his feet and Tank takes three steps before Apollo drop kicks the knee right out from under Tank! Apollo then grabs that leg, and wraps both legs around his giant leg, and locks on an ankle lock!
Kyle Steel: Tank could tap! What strategy by Apollo!
Shannan Lerch: He has been working the leg, you're right Kyle.
Luscious Jackson: Season's don't fear the Reaper..
Shannan Lerch: Sh-
Kyle Steel: Shut up Jackson!
Shannan Lerch: Thank you.
Kyle Steel: You're wel-Wait! Tank might tap!
Tank Reaper stretches out his arm but is nearly two feet away from the ropes. The ref is asking if Tank wants to tap out. Tank drags him, and Apollo closer to the ropes. Apollo bends back using all of his body to enforce the ankle and leg to be snapped. Tank reaches the bottom and middle rope and the ref gets to his feet and asks Apollo to break the hold. He won't break it. Tank grabs the top rope and pulls himself up, but Apollo is still in the hold!! The crowd is going nuts. Tank now on his feet has Apollo wrapped around his leg, Tank turns to the center of the ring, and Apollo turns the ankle of Tank, which causes him to drop back down, and never letting go, Apollo is right back in the ankle lock, and Tank is dead center of the ring.
Kyle Steel: WHAT FORCE! WHAT A STRATEGY BY APOLLO!
Shannan Lerch: You're right Kyle! Tank got to his feet, my god, he got to his feet, but was tripped back down! Apollo still in control!
Apollo screams out for Tank to tap, but he just won't. He's getting weaker, however, as he keeps dragging slowly across the ring mat to get to the ropes. The ref asking Tank every four seconds if he wants to tap. Tank is inches away from the ropes, but he just can't reach. The crowd chanting REAPER REAPER REAPER! Apollo yelling at them to shut up. Tank is inches away from the ropes, finally Apollo let's go of the hold, gets to his feet and punts Tank right in the side of the head! Tank rolls over to his back and Apollo pins. One! Two! Tank kicks up but Apollo gets thrown off, and thrown through the middle ropes and to the outside! The crowd goes nuts once more.
Kyle Steel: The strength and size of Tank Reaper is his advantage, and boy does he know how to use it.
Shannan Lerch: But can he stand. His leg and ankle are worse for wear.
Kyle Steel: Amazing work, you're right on top of it. If Tank can't stand, he possibly may lose most of his strength.
Tank Reaper uses the corner to get to his feet but just as he does, Apollo slides in and schoolboy pins him from behind! He rolls him up!
Tank Reaper kicks out! Apollo gets up and kicks Tank Reaper in the head again, then drags him to the ropes, and lifts up his bad leg and hangs it over the bottom rope. Apollo gets on the apron and taunts once more. The crowd hates his guts. Apollo climbs back to the middle turnbuckle and jumps in the air and leg drops the ankle of Tank Reaper! Apollo lands on the apron and stays put, he smiles at the crowd. They still hate his guts. Apollo grins once more, and gets to his feet, he climbs back up to the middle rope and leg drops the ankle of Tank Reaper once again! Apollo then just turns and slides into the ring and rolls Tank Reaper over and pins.
Tank puts his good leg on the ropes. Apollo gets angry, and the ref explains it as a two count. Apollo picks up Tank Reaper to where he's on his knees once again, and from there, Apollo just hits a mean, stiff, DDT! Apollo catches his breath and drags Tank by the legs to the corner of the ring. Apollo slides out, then continues to drag Tank into the corner. From here, Apollo grabs the bad leg and holds it, he smiles at the crowd and throws his knee into the turn post! The crowd boos, as Tank rivals in pain. Apollo grabs the leg and does it once more!
Kyle Steel: My god! Apollo's leg might be broken!
Shannan Lerch: It's not yet, but it's getting close to breaking.
Tank turns on the apron to grab his bad ankle, and from here, Apollo elbows him in the neck, and chest area a few times before dragging his head to the edge of the apron and letting it hang off. Apollo gets on the apron and smiles to the crowd once again, which, once again, receives boos. Apollo leaps off the apron delivering one sick knee to the face of Tank causing Apollo to crash to the mats, and Tank sliding off the apron and head first to the mats below! Apollo gets up, brushes off his knee and rolls in. He demands the ref to count him out.
Kyle Steel: Tank might not be able to get up!
Shannan Lerch: Tank is trying!
Kyle Steel: Look at Tank!!
Tank Reaper gets on the apron on his knees and bends his head through the ropes, and the ref allows it. Apollo gets frustrated, and gets on the turnbuckle. He jumps going for a leg drop to the back of the head, but Tank backs away and Apollo lands on his ass! Apollo gets to his feet holding his thigh, and turns around, where Tank picks up Apollo by his throat like a chokeslam. Tank holds Apollo in the air, goes over the top rope, but Apollo kicks out of it and lands on the apron next to Tank. Apollo kicks Tank in the back of the leg, but Tank, standing right next to Apollo, lands a back hand chop on Apollo's chest so hard that Apollo flies off the apron and 180's in the air and lands face first on the guardrail! Apollo stumbles to the ground and holds his chest which is now beet red. Tank steps over the top rope but stumbles to the center of the ring still holding his ankle and leg.
Kyle Steel: This could be the opening that Tank was waiting for!
Shannan Lerch: Tank looks weak though. He just did pick up Apollo out of nowhere! We'll find out!
Kyle Steel: That we will.. Apollo's in the ring!
Apollo slides in and walks over to Tank, where Tank picks up Apollo and delivers a spine-tingling spine buster! Tank shakes the cobwebs out of his head, and pins.
Shannan Lerch: Apollo kicked him! Tank almost had him beat!
Kyle Steel: Tank is gassed though, Apollo must still have something left in the tank... well, you know.
Luscious Jackson: You said.. Tank.. and.. his name is Tank..
Shannan Lerch: WE KNOW. SHUT IT.
Tank Reaper gets up, but hobbles on one leg and lifts Apollo to his feet. He picks up Apollo and puts him on his shoulder and walks to the ropes. He sets down Apollo on the top rope and then goes for something but Apollo uses both legs and shoves them into the face of Tank! Reaper goes stumbling backwards. Apollo leaps off the middle rope and hits the Shattered Star on Tank Reaper! The crowd boo's as Apollo holds his back, but flips Tank over and pins!
Kyle Steel: It's all over!
Shannan Lerch: No! TANK KICKED OUT! TANK KICKED OUT! TANK KICKED OUT!
Kyle Steel: Wow my! Oh my god! Apollo is just as shocked as we are.
Apollo is indeed shocked. He sits there resting on the side of Tank Reaper with a priceless face. The crowd chants REAPER REAPER REAPER. Apollo takes a deep breath and lifts up Tank Reaper to his feet, from behind Tank, Apollo leaps on to his back and locks on the hold for his move; Burning Star! Tank stumbles around the ring and Apollo can't reach the ground or he would just finish off the move, so he just wraps his legs around the torso of Tank whilst on his back and keeps the move locked on around his neck and arm. Tank stumbles before jamming back into the corner where Apollo gets squashed. Tank stumbles forward then notices Apollo in the corner. Tank runs, but Apollo sits out and hits a dropkick to the knee of Tank causing him to go head first on to the turnbuckle, and drops to his knees, where Apollo gets up quickly, and drop kicks the back of the head of Tank and causes Reaper to lay out on the mat but the crowd goes crazy.. for what you ask?
Kyle Steel: Look who it is!
Shannan Lerch: It's her! I can't remember her name!
Luscious Jackson: Matroshka! Apollo's ex-girlfriend, and now Tank's loving girlfriend.
Shannan Lerch: Finally you say something worth while. Matroshka doesn't look to be in good shape either.
Kyle Steel: She was beat down four weeks ago at the hands of Apollo! Why is she coming out!?
Shannan Lerch: Retribution? Revenge? Just cuz?
Matroshka limps her way to the bottom of the ramp and then finally the apron where she tells Tank to get up, and pleads him to stand up to finish Apollo off. Tank is nearly out cold, and Apollo never strays his eyes off of her. He sadistically smiles and lays out on the mat then rolls out of the ring and is now ten feet from her. The fans begin to react as Matroshka doesn't know he's there and she's still trying to pep-talk Tank into getting up. Apollo inches closer to her, in a sneaky-trance. Apollo then stands right behind her and she now realizes it. Apollo brushes his hand through her hair, then grabs her by the hair and turns her around. Out of the frame is Tank, whose now sliding out of the ring and limping his way behind Apollo. The crowd all cheering now, Apollo raises his hand to slap her, but Tank catches it and Apollo's eyes are as big as flying spaceships. Apollo let's go of Matroshka, and turns around. Tank shakes his head no, and grabs him by the throat! Tank then lifts Apollo in to the air and throws him to the ring from the outside! Apollo lands hard and flips around on the mat as Matroshka cheers on Tank with the fans.
Kyle Steel: THE STRENGTH OF TANK NEVER SEEMS TO DO ANYTHING BUT AMAZE ME!
Shannan Lerch: Tank is pissed now! He's hungry! Hungry for Apollo!
Tank Reaper slides in under the ropes and Apollo gets to his feet and turns around right into a mean clothesline from Tank. Apollo gets to his feet, but this time it's slower, and Tank picks up Apollo and slams him down into the corner back first. Tank then quick steps into a mean corner splash, and backs up letting Apollo stumble out and falling to the mat. Tank hits the ropes and nails The Bone Crusher (Just a jumping Splash). Apollo is out! Tank hooks the leg!
Kyle Steel: It's over! It's over!
Shannan Lerch: No! Kyle look! The ref is signaling a two count!
Luscious Jackson: Dayum.
Kyle Steel: Even I was fooled!
Tank can't believe it, and neither can Matroshka. She slams the apron in frustration and gets the crowd back into it. They begin a REAPER REAPER REAPER chant once more. Reaper picks up Apollo, and Apollo drop toe holds Tank to his stomach, and then gets up and elbow drops the back of the knee of Tank! Apollo stands up and faces Matroshka one more time. She gets on the apron and starts to trash talk Apollo and the fans eat it up! Apollo just grins and grabs her by the head again, but Matroshka slaps the spit right out of Apollo's mouth! Busting his lip wide open. Apollo dabs his lip to see the blood, then spits blood out of his mouth. He looks right back at her when he hears a rumble. It's Tank running. Tank goes for a clothesline just as Apollo turns around, but he ducks, and Tank goes face to face with Matroshka, and they almost connect! Tank wipes his brow as he almost knocked Matroshka right off the apron, when Tank turns around, Apollo springboards off the ropes and hits the Shattered Star on Tank! The crowd boos, as Tank flips to his back and Apollo quickly covers!
Kyle Steel: Damn it! Tank Reaper did all he could, but Apollo pulls out the victory!
Shannan Lerch: Matroshka is in the ring now trying to tend to Tank who just lost, but look out, Apollo hasn't left the ring yet!
Matroshka turns around and Apollo just leaps in the air hitting another Shattered Star right on Matroshka! More WCF refs enter the ring to make sure Apollo does no harm to either of them. But the harm has already been done. Apollo leaves Tank and Matroshka as they are laid out right next to each other in the center of the ring.
Kyle Steel: Matroshka is out again. She was just in the hospital for weeks because of the Shattered Star! It's not like she's a wrestler, she's not built for action. She can't just get one of those moves, and come back.
Shannan Lerch: You're right, Kyle. Absolutely right.
Luscious Jackson: Apollo is one tough dude though, can you hate on him now?
Kyle Steel: Not respectively, but yes, I can still hate on him. No need for that second Shattered Star, especially on Matroshka.
Shannan Lerch: Well, Apollo showed that he can take down the biggest man in wrestling, and strong showing for the Television Championship Tournament that starts next week.
Kyle Steel: Apollo has finally exited and look here! Tank Reaper just now realizes what has happened.
Reaper sits up and is hovering over Matroshka, almost tears in his eyes. He begins to shake with rage! Reaper stands up and shakes the ropes as Matroshka is loaded on to a stretcher for cautionary reasons. The WCF officials wheel her up the ramp and Tank Reaper steps over the ropes and jumps down and grabs her hand and walks with her. She's completely out of it. The fans begin to cheer for Tank, but he doesn't hear it. He's just with Matroshka now.
Kyle Steel: Have to feel for the big guy, no doubt.
Shannan Lerch: One day Apollo will get what he deserves.
Kyle Steel: That's the reason we keep watching WCF, and fans, you can watch us all week long on Wrestling Championship Federation dot com where you, the fan, can witness all of tonights Pay Per View including bonus matches before this event started, and of course catch up with the weekly recaps of Monday Night Slams!

D-Day vs Mikami vs Ryan Daniels vs Slickie T
Kyle Steel: Business is really picking up here tonight as we head into a fatal four-way for the possession of the United States Championship! Current champ Slickie T will be defending against three very determined men...
Shannan Lerch: And the champ himself doesn’t have to be pinned in order to lose the title. He’s really gonna have to be on his toes tonight.
Luscious Jackson: That is whack! This is almost exactly the same way Torture lost his World Title to Dake Ken a month ago. This is a numbers game, and it can’t possibly work in Guiliano’s favor.
Dead and Gone by T.I> ft Juston Timberlake plays in the speakers. The lights are dim as u see a giant United States flag appear on the screen. The lights flash on to D-Day saluting the flag. The screen says none shall be forgotten in the line of war. As also the screen shows pictures of D-Days brothers and father, as D-Day makes his way to the ring. When D-Day get in the ring he salutes the flag and as soon as he salutes red, white, and blue fireworks burst in the stadium.
Kyle Steel: First to the ring, the poster child for the families of POW’s everywhere, D-Day! The crowd really seems to like this guy!
Shannan Lerch: Well you can’t really go wrong with so obvious a patriot, Kyle. Wouldn’t it be something to see the US Title around the waist of a real American hero?
Luscious Jackson: G.I. Joe?
Shannan Lerch: What? No, you simpleton. I was talking about D-Day.
Kyle Steel: Now you know.
Luscious Jackson: And knowing is half the battle.
The lights go out and "The End of Everything" by Trivium plays. Two spotlights shine on the ramp entrance revealing Mikami standing there with his arms crossed. At the part of the song when the chanting starts, Mikami walks down the ramp and the lights follow him. He climbs into the ring and raises his arms, palms up, as the music ends.
Shannan Lerch: And there’s the former US Champ. You better believe he’s focused tonight and looking to get that title back.
Kyle Steel: With Rick Mad behind him, who wouldn’t be? Mikami has proven himself time and time again in the squared circle. If anyone stands a chance of deposing Slickie T, the smart money’s on Mikami.
Luscious Jackson: I wouldn’t be so quick to count out the next competitor, Kyle...
Voice: Welcome to Hollywood, may all your dreams come true
The suspenceful tone of the intro plays as the violins set the lets to flicker red.
"WE MUST SURVIVE!"
Guitars hits and the crowd is on their feet and pyro rains down on the entrance ramp and Ryan Daniels emerges from the back with a random T-shirt on he stands underneath the pyro, his head bowed as the intro continues to play. After it finishes the pyro stops and Ryan walks down the ramp
This is a wake up call
To all who their eyes
This is our hope,
Hopeless beaten strife
HE stops at the middle and starts to hop up and down, getting himself hyped up and ready for his match.
You kill the messenger not to hear it
It doesn't mean it never happened
It doesn't mean it never happened
He runs up the ring steps and slingshots into the ring. HE runs up the turnbuckles and stop, one foot on the top buckle and the other on the second he points out tot he crowd, mouthing the chorus to the song.
"This is our mission
statement to go show the world
GO SHOW THE WORLD
We must survive"
HE hops off the turnbuckle and removes his shirt as the music starts to fade out.
Kyle Steel: For once, Luscious, you might be right. After failing to obtain the World Title two weeks ago, Ryan Daniels is sure to be looking to make up for that tonight. The question is, can he actually get the job done? Or will Daniels be going home disappointed again?
The arena fades to black as a red, white, and green spotlights begin to circle the crowd and a red glow appears on the left side of the stage, a white glow in the middle, and a green glow on the right, as “Gravesend (Lake of Fire)” by Lordz of Brooklyn begins to blast over the speakers and the three lights come together in the center of the stage where Slickie T stands with his back turned to the crowd, his arms extended to form the shape of a “T”. He watches as the screen shows a roulette wheel spinning as the pill comes to settle on the green 00 space and the camera zooms in on the pill until the screen becomes completely white and then “Slickie T the Ace of Hardcore” scrolls across the screen in black in front of a waving Italian flag. Slickie then quickly turns as the pill settles in the 00 space and red, white, and green pyros explode behind him as he slowly makes his way down the ramp, slapping hands with those who are reaching out to him. As he reaches the ring, he quickly climbs the ring stairs, looking out over the crowd before grabbing the top rope and vaulting over the top of it and into the middle of the ring. After glancing over the crowd with a thin smile on his face, he climbs a turnbuckle and throws his arms out once again to form a “T” before backflipping off the top turnbuckle and back into the middle of the ring as the lights come up once again.
Shannan Lerch: And last, but definitely not least, the US Champ himself! The odds may not be in Guiliano’s favor, but this capacity crowd surely is!
Kyle Steel: He’s rapidly becoming a perennial favorite here in the WCF, with a proven track record in the XGWO and close friends like reigning World Champ Dake Ken, who will be defending his own title later tonight against Johnny Reb!
Luscious Jackson: I hope he whoops that cracker-ass redneck!
Further comment is forestalled as the bell rings. D-Day makes a beeline for Guiliano, but Ryan Daniels intercepts him with a kick to the gut, doubling D-Day over. Daniels applies a front facelock and nails a picture-perfect DDT.
Shannan Lerch: Ryan Daniels off to an impressive start. He’s in rare form tonight!
Meanwhile, mere feet away, Mikami and Guiliano are slugging it out. Slickie T gets an early advantage and hits a snap suplex.
Kyle Steel: Mikami looking a little dazed there. And here comes Ryan Daniels!
Luscious Jackson: Look out, Guido!
Kyle Steel: His name’s Guiliano.
All name corrections aside, Slickie T isn’t quite quick enough to avoid the barrage of stomps unleashed on him by Ryan Daniels. Mikami’s back to his feet again, and not looking overjoyed at Daniels’ interference. A roundhouse kick distracts Daniels long enough for Mikami to execute a standing hurricanrana. Slickie T gets out of the way just in time, and takes a moment to check his ribs before wading back into the fray.
Shannan Lerch: Damn! Less than two minutes into this match, and all hell has already broken loose!
Kyle Steel: You can say that again, Shannan. This has turned into an all-out brawl! The ref’s going to have his work cut out for him.
No sooner are those words uttered than the situation seems to resolve itself. Mikami goes sprawling with a hard right from D-Day. Apparently deciding that his considerable size makes D-Day the biggest threat at the moment, Ryan Daniels sets his sights on him.
Luscious Jackson: Exploder suplex! Ryan Daniels just hit D-Day with an exploder suplex!
At the exact same time, however, Slickie T is on the ropes, his gaze on the still-woozy Mikami. He launches himself off the ropes with a 450 Splash that elicits a sympathetic “oooh!” from the crowd.
Shannan Lerch: And the US Champ hooks Mikami’s leg! This could be over!
1 . . .
2 . –
Kyle Steel: Ryan Daniels is right there to break up the pin at the two-count! And Mikami rolls under the ropes to the outside to catch his breath.
Luscious Jackson: Not for long, Kyle. Daniels and Guiliano are talking trash inside the ring, but D-Day’s starting to recover!
Indeed, D-Day glances between the two men in the ring, and the single opponent to the outside, and makes a decision. He climbs the ropes, eyes fixed on Mikami.
Shannan Lerch: What in the hell is he doing?
Her question is quickly answered when D-Day becomes airborne. Mikami sidesteps at the last possible instant, and D-Day crashes to the mats on the floor. Mikami looks at him in mild disgust, then slides back into the ring, where Ryan Daniels and Allen Guiliano have progressed from simply arguing to trading punches.
Kyle Steel: Looks like Mikami doesn’t want any more to do with D-Day than he has to. His focus is solely on the US Champ. This is going to be a glorious confrontation, if he can get Ryan Daniels out of the way.
Indeed, that seems to be Mikami’s intent, as he circles the two combatants carefully. Slickie T ducks a punch from Daniels, catches his arm, and promptly whips him into a corner. Guiliano casts a wary glance at Mikami, who shrugs and gestures at Daniels.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like Mikami isn’t going to interfere with whatever Guiliano has planned here.
Slickie T lines up his shot, sure as any pool shark, and signals to the crowd, who start going wild. With lightning-quickness, he’s across the ring in an instant.
Kyle Steel: Omerta! Allen Guiliano just nailed Ryan Daniels with a superkick!
Guiliano raises his arms to the cheering crowd, who start to boo after a moment. Slickie T looks confused for a moment, then turns around to see Mikami running straight at him.
Luscious Jackson: Running enzuigiri from Mikami! You’d think Italians would know by now that the Japanese are sneaky and can’t be trusted.
Shannan Lerch: Luscious, before you get us sued, please shut up. Every word in that statement was all kinds of wrong, and I shouldn’t have to explain why.
With Guiliano down, Mikami drags him away from the ropes and makes the cover.
1 . . .
2 . . .
Kyle Steel: Kickout at two! It’s going to take more than that to keep the US Champ down!
Frustrated, Mikami pulls Slickie T to his feet and drops him with a Diamond Cutter, going for another cover.
1 . . .
2 . . .
Shannan Lerch: Another kickout! But Guiliano’s looking much worse for the wear...
Mikami stands up, ready to finish the match. He climbs to the top rope..
Luscious Jackson: He's goin for the Hammer of Justice, I'd say!
But from out of nowhere, Daniels is on the apron! He grabs Mikami and throws him off the turnbuckle... and down to the cold hard cement below! Mikami very nearly hits his head hard, and clutches his back in pain.
Kyle Steel: That was close to a VERY serious injury for Mikami.
And D-Day is back as well, and he's brawling with Daniels. D-Day goes to Suplex Daniels, but Daniels shifts his weight and lands behind him. D-Day turns around and Daniels grabs him, lifts him up... and executes his Breaking Point finisher move!
Luscious Jackson: NEW US CHAMPION! Ryan Daniels! All he's gotta do is pin D-Day!
Daniels stands up, ecstatic. But behind him, Guiliano is perched on the top rope. He jumps off.. and hits the Ace of Spades on Daniels!! The crowd pops!
Shannan Lerch: From out of NOWHERE!
Guiliano floats over and pins Ryan Daniels!
Kyle Steel: That's it! Guiliano retains his Title!
The bell rings. Guiliano stands up, and the ref hands him his belt. Guiliano drops to one knee, slinging the belt over his shoulder. He rests for a moment before he slides back out of the ring and slaps some fans' hands as he heads to the back.
Luscious Jackson: Great match for the US Title! Can Guiliano be stopped?
Shannan Lerch: I truly don't think so, Luscious.
Guiliano disappears behind the curtain.
Exodus vs The Superfans
Kyle Steel: Wow this has been an amazing night tonight folks. This truly has to be one of the biggest shows in the current WCF run. We have twenty two...COUNT 'EM...twenty two wrestlers on the card. We still have 8 more wrestlers who will be in matches tonight. We have Johnny Reb once again gunning for Dake Ken and his world title. We have Rick Mad and Torture's grudge match and up next, right here, we have the newly reinstated WCF Tag Team titles being defended for the first time in this run of WCF which started over six months ago.
Shannan Lerch: Yes, I can't believe WCF has been open this long without a decent amount of tag teams.
Kyle Steel: Yeah, I know, I think we had three tag teams a few months ago when The Dark Side was in power.
Shannan Lerch: Yes, there was Chester and Dobbie of The Dark Side, then there was Timebomb which was Shane Spain and Tank Reaper, and then there was then-WCF champion Torture teaming up with Chris Avery on occasion. Two of those six men are no longer on WCF television with Dobbie being put out of action by the Team of Treachery and Shane Spain was attacked by Tank Reaper.
Kyle Steel: Who then went on to form a tag team with Chris Avery called Truth Addiction here a few days ago. Yes and now Chester has reformed the legendary Exodus tag team with his older brother Gravedigger. And their oldest brother Brian Borroughs is their manager. Whoever thought we'd have three brothers from one family in WCF like this?
"When Worlds Collide" by Powerman 5000 hits the speakers.
Shannan Lerch: Speaking of the devil, here they come!
The song plays until it is a few seconds away from the chorus and Brian Borroughs steps out from the back, in a black business suit with a red tie. Brian stands on top of the ramp and looks out at the crowd as some of them boo.
Shannan Lerch: You know, I did some research on this guy and back in the day LOOOONG before any of us were on WCF, this guy was destined to be a legend in the business, bigger than any wrestler we have on the current roster. When Gravedigger and Chester were growing up he was blowing up federations with amazing talent, he was destined to finally become world champion but got injured in a freak accident in the ring.
Kyle Steel: I did not know that. So this guy isn't another Jayson Stasiak, a nerd in a windbreaker who can't back things up.
Shannan Lerch: No, he's not. He's the real deal and could probably wrestle a match or two, however his contract with Exodus says he can't be forced into a match unless he gives permission.
The chorus for the song hits and out walk Gravedigger and Chester. Gravedigger is wearing his now trademark black muscle shirt and black wrestling pants. His long black and white hair hangs down behind his head and his face is covered in black and white facepaint, done in a tribal design. Chester is wearing his hoodie pulled down and tattered jeans. The two men stand beside Brian, who grabs their hands. He holds them up in the air and fireworks explode on stage.
Kyle Steel: Wow! That was new.
Brian lets go of their arms as the crowd rains boos down upon the three Borroughs brothers. Brian walks down the ramp with Gravedigger and Chester following behind him. When they get to the bottom of the ramp, Gravedigger and Brian head towards the steel steps while Chester runs up and slides in under the bottom rope. Brian walks up the steps, sits on the middle rope, and holds up the top rope as Gravedigger steps past him and into the ring. Brian bounces up off of the ropes and into the ring. He stands in the center, smirking out at the crowd as Gravedigger and Chester pose on the turnbuckles. Finally get get down and Chester pulls back the hoodie, revealing his short blonde hair and his facepaint done in a similar design as Gravedigger's.
Shannan Lerch: Both me are looking serious tonight. They are ready for the Superfans, who have their work cut out for them tonight.
To everyone's surprise, "Master of Puppets" by Metallica hits the speakers instead of the music of The Superfans. Out walks WCF owner Seth Lerch.
Shannan Lerch: What is my brother doing out here?
Kyle Steel: Knowing his history with Gravedigger and Chester, this should be interesting.
Exodus gives Seth a curious look as he starts talking.
Seth Lerch: You know, I was sitting in my office in the back, thinking about how awesome this match will be. The exchange of words between Exodus and The Superfans have been pretty heated this week and something that kept getting tossed back and forth between both teams was the fact that Gravedigger likes to get himself disqualified in his matches. Now, of course in this tag team title match, that would be counterproductive, but we all know that you can be a hothead Gravedigger.
Gravedigger flips off Seth while Chester and Brian look at each other with a knowing look.
Seth Lerch: So I've decided this will not just be a tag team match for the tag team titles. I'm going to ensure that neither Exodus nor The Superfans can accidentally or purposely get themselves disqualified. This match will be a NO DISQUALIFICATION match.
The crowd goes nuts and a huge grin comes across the face of Gravedigger. Brian walks over and asks for a microphone.
Seth Lerch: There will be no disqualifications and no count outs. The only way to win the match is to either pin your opponents or to make them submit. One pin or submission and that's it.
Brian Borroughs: So wait, let me get this straight. You hand the tag team titles to The Superfans and then you put them in a tag team title match with Gravedigger and Chester, then on top of that, you're putting The Superfans in a hardcore match with Chester and the man who is known as The Epitome of Har---
Seth Lerch: I know who the hell Gravedigger is, the thing is, you've forgotten something about The Superfans. Their ability to take on the form of other tag teams. See, I'm not worried that Gravedigger could possibly get his hands on championship gold tonight, because I know what The Superfans are up to tonight, so the choice of making this a hardcore match was the perfect choice. I'm going to stand out here until the match starts because I want to see the look on Gravedigger's face here in a second. Oh and by the way, speaking of when the match starts, when the referee starts the match, Brian Borroughs you are to report to the commentators booth. I know that it will be annoying hearing your voice on the monitors talking about how Exodus is God's gift to wrestling, but I don't want you interfering in the match. Now, hit the Superfans' music for tonight!
A long whistling sound is heard and then an explosion. Suddenly the Dudley Boys music hits the speakers. Gravedigger goes rigid as he stares at the entryway. Chester and Brian both look back and forth from Gravedigger to the entrance, wondering what's wrong with Gravedigger. Mark and Marc come walking out from the back wearing the WCF tag team titles, dressed as the Dudley Boys. Mark is dressed up as Buh Buh Ray Dudley with the purple tie-dyed shirt and Marc is dressed as D-Von Dudley with the purple tie-dyed shirt and black overalls. Even Tiffany Jane has on a purple tie-dyed shirt. Gravedigger gets livid and lunges towards the ropes. Chester and Brian Borroughs grab hold of him and hold on for dear life.
Kyle Steel: YES! They are the Dudley Boys and not just any Dudleys, the ones from ECW, old school Dudleys!!
Shannan Lerch: What has gotten into Gravedigger, he's going berserk in the ring.
Kyle Steel: Hold on, they're telling me from the back that it's because he once faced the REAL Dudleys in another organization years ago. It was a match for the hardcore title where Gravedigger defended it successfully.
Shannan Lerch: Apparently the Superfans found the one thing to make Gravedigger flip out.
Gravedigger finally shoves Chester and Brian away and climbs out of the ring opposite the entryway. Gravedigger walks over, grabs the timekeeper and shoves him out of his chair and folds the chair up.
Luscious Jackson: THAT'S my boy, Gravedigger, wasting no time in getting this match hardcore.
Gravedigger starts walking around the ring towards the ramp where Mark and Marc are already walking down it. They spot Gravedigger walking towards them. Marc bends down beside the barricade to jump Gravedigger while Mark gestures for Gravedigger to bring it. Gravedigger walks around the corner and as if he has a sixth sense, he swings the chair at Marc who jumps up to clothesline Gravedigger and Marc goes down with a chair shot to the head.
Shannan Lerch: OW! Marc meet Gravedigger!
Gravedigger turns and swings the chair at Mark who ducks the chair and lifts his head to meet a kendo stick to the face from Chester.
Shannan Lerch: OW! Mark meet Chester!
Chester tosses down the kendo stick and talks trash to The Superfans who are down already. Gravedigger turns to the top of the ramp to face Seth Lerch. He yells at Seth.
Gravedigger: This all you got? I'm finishing these chumps and coming for that world title.
Seth Lerch gets pissed off and storms to the back. Gravedigger reaches down and picks up Marc, leads him down to the ring and rolls him in. Gravedigger kneels down and lifts up the apron and starts digging under the ring. He pulls out a stop sign which he slides into the ring. He pulls out a couple of kendo sticks and tosses them over the ropes, slides in a couple of chairs and then grabs a trash can. He places it on the apron and reaches down to get a fire extinguisher.
Chester picks up Mark and hooks his head, preparing for a suplex on the ramp. He goes for it but Mark hooks his leg around Chester's, blocking the attempt. He goes for it again, but no luck once more. Mark reverses the attempt and Chester hits the ramp back-first in a snap suplex. Chester arches his back and yells out in pain. Mark notices Gravedigger at the side of the ring. Mark walks over and taps Gravedigger on the shoulder. Gravedigger drops the fire extinguisher and stands up, turning around. Mark steps forward and slaps Gravedigger in the face. Gravedigger starts fuming.
Brian Borroughs reaches the commentator position and puts on a headset, sitting beside Luscious Jackson.
Brian Borroughs: Oh hell, Mark just signed his death sentence with that.
Shannan Lerch: Oh hello, Brian, welcome to the broadcast booth.
Gravedigger swings at Mark who ducks and grabs Gravedigger's arm. Mark irish whips Gravedigger right into the trashcan sitting on the apron. Gravedigger yells out as he staggers back. Chester is walking down the ramp. Mark looks towards the ring and takes a couple of steps away from Gravedigger and Chester. They look up to see what he saw and their eyes grow wide as Marc flies over the tope rope with a corkscrew senton taking out both members of Exodus.
Kyle Steel: Oh wow! I guess it's safe to say Exodus meet The Superfans!
Luscious Jackson: This is crazy, we're a couple of minutes into the match and we've already seen a couple of weapons used and then some extreme high flying.
Marc jumps up and runs into the ring with Mark. Mark stands in the center of the ring, looking at Exodus who are slowly getting up. Marc stands off to the side and yells out "Testify" really loud. Marc walks back over beside Mark and the two men taunt Exodus. Gravedigger and Chester nod at each other and run up, sliding into the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Finally all four men are in the ring. The Superfans jump on Exodus and start laying boots to the brothers from Phoenix, Arizona. Irish whip by both Superfans on Exodus.
Kyle Steel: And both men go down from a pair of dropkicks from Marc and Mark.
Brian Borroughs: Come on guys! Get up and show these pieces of crap who you are.
Chester is picked up again and irish whipped once more. Marc clotheslines him to the mat while Mark irish whips Gravedigger across the ring. Gravedigger bounces off, Mark misses his clothesline and eats a face full of boot as Gravedigger nails him with his boot. Marc turns around in time to see Gravedigger coming but not quick enough to stop him from delivering a couple of rights to the head. Chester is back up and grabs Marc. He holds him as Gravedigger delivers a couple of more rights Mark is slowly getting back up as Gravedigger grabs his partner and lifts him on his shoulder. He signals for a powerslam and starts to run across the ring with him. Mark quickly leaps up and dropkicks his own partner in the back and causes him to land on Gravedigger who hits the mat. Marc hooks the leg as the referee slides into position.
1..kick out by Gravedigger. Gravedigger slaps the mat really hard in anger and goes after Mark. Mark is irish whipped right into a kick in the gut from Chester who DDTs him to the mat. Mark is holding both his head and his stomach as the kick to the gut hurt almost as bad as the DDT itself. Marc is back up and both members of Exodus come after him but he ducks, bounces off the ropes and hits a double clothesline, knocking down both Chester and Gravedigger.
Luscious Jackson: Looks pretty even so far.
Brian Borroughs: Oh please, Gravedigger and Chester are just getting warmed up.
Marc reaches down and picks up a chair.
Shannan Lerch: And there went the part of the match where it was even.
Marc brings the chair down across the abdomen of Chester who yells out in pain. Mark is finally back up and he helps Marc get Chester up and they toss him through the top and middle rope to the outside. Gravedigger gets up on the side of the ring and turns around to both members of The Superfans. He notices the chair in Marc's hand and the kendo stick in Mark's hand. He grins and tells them to bring it. Marc steps forward and delivers a big shot to the face with the kendo stick, but Gravedigger staggers back and shrugs it off asking for another shot. Marc obliges and hits The Epitome of Hardcore with another kendo shot. Gravedigger staggers back again and asks for another.
Brian Borroughs: Yeah that's what I'm talking about.
Mark steps forward and nails Gravedigger with a chair shot. Gravedigger hits the mat, but after a couple of seconds he gets back up and yells out for another. Mark steps forward again, but Gravedigger kicks him in the midsection, causing him to drop the chair, grabs him and hits a reverse STO onto the chair. Gravedigger jumps up and ducks a kendo shot by Marc, kicks him in the midsection and delivers a nasty powerbomb in the middle of the ring. Gravedigger stands up smiling, a small trickle of blood coming from where the chair hit him. Chester slowly climbs back into the ring as Gravedigger looks down at the Superfans.
Kyle Steel: Why aren't they pinning them? After that powerbomb on Marc and the reverse STO on Mark onto his own chair, this could be it.
Brian Borroughs: Nah, the Borroughs, we love to toy with our victims. These guys have run their mouths too much to be pinned in the first five minutes. This is going on longer.
Chester picks up Mark and irish whips him into the turnbuckle across the ring. Gravedigger stands across the ring from him and runs at him and dives for a spear. Mark manages to leap frog him and Gravedigger hits the steel post shoulder-first. A loud OOOH can be heard from the crowd. Gravedigger ends up rolling out onto the apron and lays there holding his shoulder.
Luscious Jackson: There's no way that felt good. No way at all.
Chester grabs Mark from behind and applies a Dragon Sleeper. The referee walks over and checks on Mark. Marc is slowly starting to get up and he walks over. Chester drops Mark and goes after his tag team partner. Marc goes to kick Chester in the gut who catches his leg. Marc hits Chester with an enziguri. Chester is picked up and snap suplexes him to the mat once more. Marc walks over and mounts the turnbuckle and hits a picture perfect shooting star press, and hooks the leg.
1...2...kick out. Barely a 2 count at all and Chester gets the shoulder up. Mark is back up and both Superfans pick Chester up and they irish whip him. Chester comes running back and both men lift him up and hit a double flapjack.
Kyle Steel: Shades of the Dudley Boys right there, one of their signature moves. Oh wait, looks like they're going for another one right here.
Mark grabs Chester's legs and turns him towards the turnbuckle, crotch first. Mark looks out at the crowd who starts going crazy. Marc runs over and climbs the turnbuckle and perches on the top. Marc yells out WHUZZZZUP to Mark who yells the same thing back and the crowd yells it out too and Marc leaps off the top rope and hits a diving headbutt to the groin of Chester.
Shannan Lerch: OH NO! This means no nephews or nieces for you, Brian!
Brian Borroughs: Hey I still have Gravedigger and his sperm.
Kyle Steel: Yeah, that didn't sound weird at all.
Brian Borroughs: Hey, Steel, shut your mouth. Watch the match, my brothers will turn this thing around soon.
Chester bounces around on the mat in a lot of pain. Marc gets up and walks over to Mark who shoves him and extends his arms to the sides, yelling.
Mark: GET THE TABLES!!
The crowd goes crazy again as Marc slides outside the ring, reaches up under the ring and pulls out a table. He slides it up into the ring and climbs into the ring, helping Mark set it up. Chester is still in pain, but Marc walks over and picks him up. Marc irish whips him across the ring as Mark steps backward to bounce off the ropes for the 3D as the crowd starts yelling out 3D.
Shannan Lerch: This could be it!
Brian Borroughs: Fat chance, Mark isn't even watching where he's going. Gravedigger's been playing possum.
Mark backs up to where Gravedigger was laying on the apron. Gravedigger sits up and grabs Mark by the belt, and pulls him through the ropes to the outside where he hits hard. Marc sees this but Chester ends up running into him and they collide, knocking the table over. Gravedigger rolls into the ring and grabs the table. He puts one of the legs up and props the table in the corner. He squats down and stalks Marc, waiting for him to turn around. Just as he does, Gravedigger kicks him in the gut and hoists him up on his shoulder. Gravedigger walks over to one of the turnbuckles and charges across the ring with Marc on his shoulder and splinters the table with a huge running powerslam on one-half of the tag team champions. The crowd goes nuts.
Brian Borroughs: I TOLD YOU! Marc is done, this is over.
Gravedigger has a huge smile on his face as he gets down and hooks the leg of Marc. The referee slides into position.
1...2...the referee stops counting and Gravedigger looks at the referee like he wants to kill him. The referee is pointing to Marc.
Brian Borroughs: What you got to be kidding me!!
Shannan Lerch: His foot is on the rope. The referee can't count the pin if his foot is on the rope.
Luscious Jackson: Wow, someone has been reading their rulebook.
Shannan Lerch: I'm not just all looks, you know.
Luscious Jackson: You're not looks at all.
Brian Borroughs: Hahaha!
Luscious Jackson and Brian Borroughs high five each other. Back in the ring, Gravedigger gets up and starts yelling at the referee. Chester walks over and starts laying boots to Marc. Gravedigger turns around as Mark climbs onto the apron from the outside. He walks right into a fire extinguisher blast from Mark. Mark quickly climbs into the ring as Gravedigger yells out and rubs at his eyes. Mark grabs Gravedigger and applies a rear naked choke on him. After a few seconds, he finally has Gravedigger on the ground. Chester turns around and sees what's going on across the ring and Mark instantly lets go of Gravedigger and grabs the fire extinguisher again. Chester grabs one of the remaining chairs that's not bent up and walks towards Mark with it. Gravedigger starts getting back up and Chester gets sprayed as Mark turns on the fire extinguisher once more, the ring filling up with it this time. In the mist a chair shot is heard and when it clears, Marc is leaning against the turnbuckle, perfectly fine. Chester is standing in the ring, looking down at someone. He looks up to his left and starts freaking out when it's revealed that Mark is the one standing on that side of the ring.
Brian Borroughs: Are you serious?!? What the hell!!
Chester slowly looks down and the crowd cheers as Gravedigger is seen laying on the mat, knocked out. Chester accidentally hit him with the chair in all the confusion. Chester throws down the chair and bends down trying to wake Gravedigger back up. Marc and Mark stalk Chester and the crowd starts chanting 3D. Chester hears this and turns to see one of the Supefans nearby. He runs at the Superfan, Marc, who bends down and lifts him up in a flapjack maneuver. Mark runs over and completes the 3D and the Superfans lay Chester out in the center of the ring.
Kyle Steel: This match could be over right here with that 3D. Gravedigger is already knocked out cold from that huge accidental chair shot by Chester. Mark covers Chester as the referee slides into place. 1...2...NO! He barely kicks out. How did Chester manage to kick out of that??
Brian Borroughs: It's because we Borroughs are not quitters. It's going to take more than some imitation finisher to finish one of us off.
Mark and Marc talk to each other off to the side. Gravedigger starts to slowly stir and he gets over to the ropes and slowly pulls himself up. Mark walks over and grabs Gravedigger from behind and hits a huge Buh Buh Bomb and hooks the leg. However Gravedigger kicks out at two to the astonishment of everyone watching. Mark and Marc appear to start getting frustrated over not being able to finish Exodus off. Mark picks up Gravedigger and signals for the Mark Out!
Kyle Steel: There's no way that Gravedigger can kick out of this.
Brian Borroughs: Forget thi---
Brian Borroughs throws down his headset and storms off from the announcer's booth. The crowd starts going crazy as Marc climbs the turnbuckle. He flies off as Mark powerbombs Gravedigger, completing the Mark Out! Brian starts running down as Marc stays on Gravedigger for the pin.
1...2...the referee stops counting and The Superfans turn around to see that the referee was pulled outside of the ring where Brian Borroughs is now arguing with him. Brian finally punches out the referee.
Kyle Steel: Oh COME ON! The Superfans had the match won, this was over! Brian wasn't even supposed to be down there, Seth said he ha---
Luscious Jackson: Oh would you shut up? You sound like a whiney little bitch, it's over. Brian pulled the ref out and punched him in the mouth. Get past it, man.
Mark climbs out of the ring and starts chasing Brian who runs around the ring. He starts yelling out about an injury but Mark pays him no attention. Brian slides into the ring and stands up, only to bump into Marc. Marc dropkicks Brian to the mat. Mark slides in and grabs Brian. He tells Marc to go to the turnbuckle. Mark lifts Brian up onto his shoulder.
Shannan Lerch: This looks like the Dudleyville Device!
Marc leaps off of the turnbuckle and clotheslines Brian off of his shoulders. The crowd goes nuts as Brian crumples onto the mat. Mark and Marc stand up and start posing for the crowd, acting as if they have won the match. Suddenly, Chester is standing up behind them, barbed wire 2x4 in hand, a pissed off look on his face. Neither Mark nor Marc realize it as the crowd starts pointing behind them. Chester swings the board and connects with Mark's back and breaks the board on him. Mark yells out in pain and falls to the mat. Marc turns around wide-eyed, but Chester kicks him in the gut and holds his arms out after putting Marc's head between Chester's legs. The crowd starts booing as he signals for the Morning Star. Chester lifts Marc up and plants him in the center of the ring with a Morning Star.
Chester stands up and smiles out at the crowd. He puts his foot on the chest of Marc and raises his arms in the air, waiting for the referee to register the 3-count. After a few seconds, he looks around and notices the referee is still knocked out. Suddenly, a referee comes running out from the back, down the ramp, and slides into the ring as Chester's foot is still on Marc's chest. The referee counts.
1...2...it was too late! Marc kicks out.
Luscious Jackson: NO! If only Brian hadn't knocked out the referee, Exodus would be the new tag team champions!
Kyle Steel: Actually, he did that as a result of keeping Exodus from being pinned, so it's likely that Exodus wouldn't have won either way.
Chester walks over and helps Gravedigger get up. The two men start taking a breather. Gravedigger looks over at Mark and then at the splintered table. He grins sadistically.
Shannan Lerch: I do NOT like the look on Gravedigger's face. This is not good when he gets that look.
Luscious Jackson: It usually means shit is about to hit the fan, I LOVE IT!!
Gravedigger says something to Chester who slides out of the ring. Chester quickly grabs another table out from under the ring and sets it up on the outside. Gravedigger walks over and grabs Mark. He leads him over to the side of the ring where Chester has the table set up as Chester gets up onto the ring apron. Chester helps Gravedigger get Mark up onto his shoulders.
Kyle Steel: Oh no, not this. They can't be thinking of doing this on the outside like that.
Shannan Lerch: Well, there's not a lot Marc can do right now about it since he's still out from the Morning Star that Chester just gave him.
Gravedigger holds Mark onto his shoulders and moves towards the table. He goes to dump him off and Chester jumps through the air and grabs his head and helps hit the Brotherly Love off the ring apron through a table on the outside!!!
Luscious Jackon: HOLY SHIT! He's got to be dead after that!!
The crowd starts chanting HOLY SHIT over and over and over for nearly 5 minutes. Gravedigger is crouching down on the outside of the ring, catching his breath. Chester is laying on the ground hurting a little bit, but starts getting up after a couple of minutes of getting a breather. Chester looks down at Mark who is still laid out, barely even moving. Tiffany Jane is off to the side screaming her lungs out, crying. Chester grins and walks over to the ring and pulls himself up into the ring. Gravedigger is looking down at Mark with a sadistic grin on his face. He stands there looking out at the crowd who rains boos down upon him.
Kyle Steel: They sure do hate Gravedigger! Great crowd here tonight.
Chester is in the ring and Marc is finally getting back up. Chester runs at Marc, who ducks and from out nowhere flips into the air and nails a Cheap Pop to the cranium of Chester. Chester is laid out cold in the ring and the crowd pops...which is ironic and quite expected due to the name of the move just performed. Gravedigger snaps his head around at the sound and climbs into the ring as Marc gets back up. Marc turns around right into a kick to the midsection by Gravedigger. Gravedigger hoists him onto his shoulder and signals for the Death Driver.
Shannan Lerch: This move'll end the match!
But no! Marc slides down behind Gravedigger and shoves him into a nearby turnbuckle, causing GD to hit his chest hard. GD stumbles back, and Marc runs and hits a Running Bulldog!
Luscious Jackson: Superfans getting the advantage back!
Marc follows up by jumping up a nearby turnbuckle.. and flies off with the Spoiler Alert!! The crowd pops huge, they're all on their feet, Marc pins Gravedigger!
Kyle Steel: The Superfans retain the Tag Team Titles!!
The crowd roars! Marc stands up and gets his belt. Mark has finally recovered, and slides into the ring. He stands up for a second, but nearly falls back down. Marc catches him, and the ref hands Mark his Title. Tiffany Jane meets them in the ring and they raise their arms high in the air to another huge ovation.
Shannan Lerch: Great to see someone finally knock Gravedigger down a peg!
Gravedigger lays in the ring, holding his head. The Superfans leave the ring and head to the back with their Titles.
Luscious Jackson: What a dope match. Awesome.
Rick Mad vs Torture
Evenflow by Pearl Jam hits, and Rick Mad steps out. The fans cheer him mostly since he's going against an incredibly large heel at this time. Mad walks to the ring, ignoring them. He slides in, climbs up a turnbuckle and poses as green pyro shoots from the other three turnbuckles. Mad steps off the apron and eyes the entrance.
Kyle Steel: Rick Mad looks to be ready.
Shannan Lerch: I hope this son of a bitch goes down.
Kyle Steel: Which son of a bitch?
Shannan Lerch: Torture.. ugh.
Jamais Vu hits the airwaves, and with no pyro and no smoke, Torture steps out onto the stage walking straight forward to the ring. As he walks down the entrance, you notice Torture is wearing dark blue jeans, sneakers, and a blue button up shirt.
Kyle Steel: By the looks of this, Torture isn't wanting to wrestle. He's wanting to fight!
Torture continues walking down the ramp and slides in all sneaky like. His eyes never leave Rick Mad. Torture unbuttons his shirt and throws it over the top rope. The ref asks for the bell to be rung just as Rick Mad runs and spears Torture down to the mat and both men begin right and left hand punches to each others face! They roll under the ropes to the outside! Rick Mad lands on his feet and throws Torture to the guardrail. He lands a few more right hands then clotheslines Torture over the guardrail and into the first few rows. Fans scatter with security guards keeping the fans back. Rick Mad picks up Torture by the head and throws him into a chair being held by a fan. Rick Mad walks Torture up the steps to the mezzanine where surprised fans are buying merchandise and drinks now have a front row standing-show as Rick Mad hip tosses Torture to the cold floor below. Rick Mad grabs a soda from a fan, and drinks some then throws it at Torture. Hit's him in the face. Rick Mad picks up Torture and begins a few punches then hits a standing dropkick sending Torture backwards into a popcorn machine vendor. Rick Mad sizes him up as security guards keep the fans back. Rick Mad runs at Torture, but the Tort grabs Rick by the head and throws him head first into the popcorn vending machine and Mad's head smashes through the glass! The fans gasp, as do the fans inside the arena watching it on the video screen as well.
Kyle Steel: Wow! Rick Mad trying to shake that off!
Torture grabs Rick Mad from behind and walks him a few feet down the corridor where more fans are spread across the halls and Torture stops, picks up Rick Mad and slams him down on the floor. Torture turns around and grabs A steel chair that was sitting next to the wall. Torture picks it up and swings at Rick Mad, but Mad ducks and then shoves Torture into the cement wall. Torture drops the chair and Rick Mad hits a clothesline. Rick Mad picks up Torture and walks over to a door that is heavily secured by security guards. Mad shoves them out of the way and throws Torture into the door. Mad opens the door and shoves Torture down the stairs. Mad follows down the stairs and then makes the turn down some more stairs pulling Torture with him who he picked up on the way. They reach the bottom of the stairs and it's clear they are now backstage. Rick Mad picks up Torture and throws him through the door. It slams open, and Torture falls to the cement floor. Rick Mad walks over to Torture and picks him back up and throws him into a vending machine. Rick Mad walks over but Torture kicks Mad in the gut then throws him head first into the vending machine. It bends leaving a dent. Rick Mad stumbles over to the wall next to the machine. Torture gives a few kicks to the midsection and then bends down to pick up Mad. He throws Mad into a table holding various fruits and vegetables. Rick Mad lands on the table but flips over it, causing the table to flip as well. Rick Mad lands on the cold concrete. Torture walks over and kneels over Rick Mad's body. He grabs Mad by the head and gives ten straight hard, cold, right hands.
Shannan Lerch: My god!
Kyle Steel: He's relentless!
Torture slows down but gives five more right hands. Mad is now just laying on his back and Torture gets up. The Tort walks over and picks up the table that was tipped over from Rick Mad. He stands it back up and then turns to pick up Rick Mad. Torture grabs Mad and suplexes him right through the table! Rick Mad yells out in pain as Torture sits up and catches his breath. Torture gets to his feet and the ref now has finally caught up with the two men. Torture grabs Mad and picks him up to his feet and walks him down the garage area and throws him into a semi-truck trailer. Torture picks up Rick Mad like a spinebuster and slams Mad into the trailer back-first into the trailer again. Torture grabs Rick Mad by the head and throws him into the storage boxes that roll around after Mad rebounds off of them. Torture opens up one of the boxes and pulls out pipe of some sort. Rick Mad gets up and ducks just as Torture swings the pipe. Mad shoves Torture from behind into the hard storage boxes. Mad takes the pipe and slams it across Torture's back. Torture stands up in pain, turns around, and gets a pipe to the face from Rick Mad. Torture is laid out on his back on the floor when Rick Mad kneels over his body and gives his own right hands.
Shannan Lerch: Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about!
Kyle Steel: Torture in trouble! Rick Mad is in charge now.
Rick Mad gets up and shakes the pain out of his fist and picks up Torture by the head and throws him into a cement wall then hits a sidekick right to the bottom of the jaw of Torture. Mad grabs Torture before he can fall from the hit, and picks him up and slams him into the wall. Mad grabs Torture and throws him through another door this time a hallway with carpet and doors on each side. Has to be a hallway with lockerrooms. Mad drags Torture down the hallway, both men standing and walking, but Mad obviously in charge. Mad throws Torture through a curtain area and Torture lands in a chain-link fence area that is leading towards the entrance. Rick Mad sizes up Torture once again, then runs and spears Torture, lifting him up, and having both men crash through the chain-link fence! Both men take the brunt of the impact ripping the fence in half! The ref checks on both men as staff members scatter from the area. Mad gets up first breathing hard and quickly picks up Torture and throws him into the cement wall then shoves Torture through a black curtain which has the crowd in a frenzy. It's known that Torture just now stumbled to the entrance area on the stage. Rick Mad comes through the curtain with a chair and swings at Torture. Torture ducks, grabs Mad from behind and hits a back suplex.
Kyle Steel: On the stage area, and not one of them as gone for a pin.
Shannan Lerch: I don't think they care. Torture just wants to fight, and Mad is finally getting revenge from a few months back!
Kyle Steel: You are right. This is what Seth wanted, and this is what the fans get!
Torture gets up and picks up Rick Mad and puts him on his shoulders. Mad fights his way out of the hold and on to his feet behind Torture. Mad grabs Torture and hits a Russian leg sweep on the cold steel of the stage. The ref checks on both men, but still no pin fall. Mad gets up and grabs the chair and walks over to Torture. He holds it in the air. Mad swings downward but Torture lifts his leg connecting to the groin of Rick Mad! Torture also catches the chair and from laying down on his back, swings it at Mads head and connects on that move too! Mad falls a few feet away near the edge of the stage. Torture notices and crawls over to the edge. The crowd stands up in unison as the video screen shows a ten foot drop off. Torture stands up and picks up Rick Mad. Torture sadistically smiles, but out of nowhere, Rick Mad kicks Torture to the midsection, grabs Torture as he bends downby the head and hits a MAD DDT off of the stage, and both men fall off the stage and through various tables, and wreckage below! The crowd gasps and cheer. The crowd is wondering what is going on as the ref climbs down the stage and checks on both men.
Shannan Lerch: Oh man! Rick Mad had nothing else to do so he just took down Torture with him. We're trying to get a camera in on them as we speak.
Kyle Steel: Here's a shot.. Rick Mad and Torture look out cold.
The ref checks on them both, and staff members move the table and wreckage so that both men can get up. Torture does get up and crawls over to the ramp area to help him up. He climbs up the side of the ramp and then takes a breather before getting to his feet. Mad begins to move through the wreckage as well. Torture stands up and walks down the ramp and just as he gets to the bottom of the ramp the crowd kind of cheers as Mikami runs down the ramp and clotheslines Torture in the back of the head causing him to go flying forward into the apron. Mikami picks up Torture and throws him into the ring and he quickly follows in as well. Torture gets to his feet and turns around just as Mikami hits a spinning wheel kick! Mikami picks up Torture and hits a spinebuster then quickly goes to the top rope. The crowd stands as Mikami moonsaults and lands on Torture. Rick Mad gets to the ring apron just as Mikami begins to talk trash to the out cold Torture. Mad slides in and demands Mikami leave the ring. Mikami listens, and leaves the ring. He walks up the ramp and is gone. Mad walks around Torture as he tries to get to his feet. Mad stalks Torture from behind, and when Tort turns around Mad hits another Mad DDT!
Kyle Steel: It's all over!
Luscious Jackson: No way!
Shannan Lerch: Mad pins Torture in the middle of the ring!
The ref counts.. One.. Two.. Three..
Kyle Steel: No! Torture kicks out! How the hell!? Torture kicks out before the three!
Shannan Lerch: That son of a bitch!
Luscious Jackson: I told you. Rick Mad lookin' scurred now.
Rick Mad can't believe it and gets up, he stalks Torture while he gets to his feet, and Mad kicks Torture and hits another Mad DDT! But rather than pinning, Mad slowly raises to his feet then picks up Torture and grabs him from behind. Rick Mad locks on the hold of the Tortures Device when Mad notices someone standing on the stage. The man is masked and is wearing regular clothes. The mask is a beanie with two cut holes for the eyes.
Kyle Steel: Who the hell is that!?
Rick Mad smiles and drops Torture.
Shannan Lerch: Is that something to do with Rick Mad? Mikami too? What the hell is going on?
Rick Mad picks up Torture and goes for another DDT, but Torture flips Mad over backwards hitting a northern-light suplex! The ref still in the ring as the man is slowly making his way down to the ring. Torture picks up Mad, but gets a lowblow, and Mad then throws Torture head first into the turnbuckles. Tort falls to the mat after the connection. Mad stands up and turns to the masked man who has now reached the ring. The masked man stands up on the apron and gets into the ring. Rick Mad smiles. The masked man stands in the corner facing Mad.
Kyle Steel: Who the hell is it?!
Luscious Jackson: Has to be someone with Rick Mad.
Shannan Lerch: He's putting his head to the mask. He's going to unmask!
The masked man keeps his hand on the mask above his head. Rick Mad has an even bigger grin now. The masked man standing still.. the crowd on their feet wondering what the hell is going on.
Kyle Steel: Suspense is killing me.
The mask starts getting lifted slowly.. then just gets pulled off and the mask goes flying into the crowd. He stands there. Rick Mad's grin.. slowly.. goes to a jaw-dropped shocked face.
Kyle Steel: WHAT? WHAT THE HELL?
Luscious Jackson: I knew it! I knew it!
Shannan Lerch: DEATH IS HERE? DEATH IS HERE! WHAT THE HELL?! EVERYONE HERE IS SHOCKED...
Kyle Steel: DEATH ALWAYS RETURNS WHEN TORTURE IS IN TROUBLE! LOOK AT RICK MAD! I DON'T THINK RICK MAD WAS EXPECTING THIS!
Shannan Lerch: So Death is NOT with Rick Mad! Look out!!
Death connects with a big boot sending Rick Mad to his back. Death bends down and slaps a chokehold on Rick Mad. Death lifts up Mad from him laying out on his back to the air. Death slams Rick Mad down in the center of the ring. A camera shows Torture sitting in the corner with his sadistic grin. The crowd is going nuts, with more boos than cheers. Rick Mad is out. Torture stands up and yells for Death to pick him up. Death picks up Rick Mad and Torture grabs Mad from behind and quickly hits the Torture's Device! The ref bends down and pins.
Luscious Jackson: One! Two!
Shannan Lerch: Three! It's over. God damn it.
Kyle Steel: Torture defeated Rick Mad with the help of Death.
Shannan Lerch: What does this mean now? Is Death here to stay?
Kyle Steel: I have no idea what is going on with Torture. He just defeated Rick Mad though, we do know that.
Shannan Lerch: Death is always trying to destroy Rick Mad's plans. I swear. It's been going for almost a decade now!
Torture smiles as he stands above Rick Mad's body. Death standing right next to him. The crowd booing as hard as ever. Torture soaks in the boo's and lifts his head as if he's greater than them.
Kyle Steel: I just don't believe it, Shannan. I'm still shocked. Almost speechless.
Shannan Lerch: I'm with ya Steel. Torture will almost stop at nothing to get what he wants. And it's just a guess, but I believe he wants that World Title.
Torture and Death are now shown walking up the ramp. Torture keeps eying Rick Mad whose laid out in the middle of the ring. Death and Torture disappear in the darkness of the stage, and we cut back to the announcers.
Luscious Jackson: Rick Mad had done this to himself dog!
Kyle Steel: You might be right. Perhaps Seth Lerch put Rick Mad into a fight that Seth thought he could have won.
Shannan Lerch: Torture is just one son of a bitch who will never go away-
In the arena, the lights go out and the WCFtron lights up.
Shannan Lerch: Whatever this is, it's ruining the afterglow of an amazing match.
Luscious Jackson: Yeah, just like when Mom walked in on us.
The screen shows someone lying on a hospital bed, but all that can be seen is the vague shape of a body in the background, and an arm in the foreground. All that can be heard are the steady beats of the EKG machine. Everything is still. Suddenly, one of the fingers twitches. The scene fades out and is replaced by a message.
You didn't finish the job!
See you soon.
Luscious Jackson: The helllllll?
Kyle Steel: No idea, Luscious. Given Rick's recent work with other companies, this might not even involve WCF.
Shannan Lerch: It's on the WCFtron!
Kyle Steel: Please tell me that's not actually what it's called.
Shannan Lerch: My point is, if it didn't involve us before, it does now.
Johnny Reb vs Dake Ken
Kyle Steel: And now, the match we've all been waiting for.
Shannan Lerch: Ladders surround the ring. The World Title hangs high in the air. And two men will fight to the death for it.
Luscious Jackson: Johnny Reb. Dake Ken. Let's do this.
The opening chords of "Bad Company" by Bad Company filter through the arena. The stage and the surrounding area go dark. As the actual lyrics begin, blue lights illuminate a pair of figures: Johnny Reb and Dixie Pride.
Always on the run.
They both step out onto the ramp and the stage lights return to normal.
Is the rising sun.
Johnny’s appearance draws a mixed reaction from the crowd, largely of a negative variety.
I was born 6-gun in my hand,
Behind a gun, I make my final stand.
The Inveterate Confederate starts down the ramp, slowly, and pauses halfway down.
That's why they call me...
Suddenly, a fountain of pyros erupts behind him to coincide with the change in the song's tempo. Johnny raises his hands and lifts his head, making a beckoning motion, reveling in the crowd’s attentions, favorable or not.
Bad Company. And I can't deny,
Bad Company, til the day I die.
Reb lowers his arms and gives the dissenting fans a disdainful sneer.
Deserters we are called,
Chose a gun
And threw away the sun.
Johnny keeps walking toward the ring at a stately pace, ignoring taunts. Dixie remains at his side, casting the occasional insult back at an over exuberant dissident.
Now these towns,
They all know our name.
Is our claim to fame.
Reb walks up the steel steps and holds the ropes for Dixie. He stalks to the far corner and climbs onto the second turnbuckle, posing for the audience.
I can hear them say..
Bad Company, and I won’t deny.
Bad. Bad Company, til the day I die.
Dixie works the crowd as Johnny hops off the turnbuckle and removes the hat and coat. The music fades away.
Kyle Steel: Johnny Reb, this could be his night. He defeated Torture, I repeat, HE DEFEATED TORTURE, for the GWC World Title. He's the last GWC Champion. And he did it in a ladder match.
Shannan Lerch: Quite right, Kyle.
"Bow Down" by Born of Osiris hits on the PA system.
Luscious Jackson: The champ is here!
The lights dim down as the guitars and drums hit as spot lights focus on the curtain. Dake pops out from behind the curtain with both arms raised. World Title around his waist. He pauses for a moment and looks around the arena, soaking in the fan reaction, before lowering his arms and starting down the ramp. He slaps a few fans' hands as he makes his way to the ring. He walks over to the steps and quickly walks up them. He plays to the crowd a bit before stepping into the ring and making his way to the far turnbuckle. He hops up onto the second rope and poses to the crowd.
Kyle Steel: The man that finally, FINALLY took the WCF World Title away from Torture.. a man becoming a true legend of WCF... Dake Ken.
Dake Ken and Johnny Reb stare at each other from across the ring. The bell sounds. The match is on.
Shannan Lerch: Here goes.
The men both immediately slide out of the ring on their respective sides. They grab ladders, then slide back in. Both men see each other with a ladder, and both men simultaneously throw their ladders at the other. The two ladders bang together in the middle of the ring. A smirk crosses both of their faces, and they each grab their ladder and slide them back out of the ring.. so they have room to wrestle.
Kyle Steel: Both men just learned that simple tactics like grabbing a ladder immediately aren't going to work in this match.
Dake and Reb approach each other and tie up. Dake takes control, shoving Reb into a corner. The ref calls for a clean break... which Dake delivers.
Luscious Jackson: Respectable...
Reb slaps Dake across the face.
Luscious Jackson: ...but stupid.
Dake reels backwards, and Reb follows up by running at him and hitting a Bulldog. Dake goes down hard. Reb then runs to the ropes, Springboards and hits a Lionsault, resulting in a quick pin.
Shannan Lerch: One, two- oh wait, this is a ladder match.
Kyle Steel: No pins here!
Luscious Jackson: But a good wrestler's instincts lead to the attempt.
Shannan Lerch: Johnny Reb employing high flying tactics early. Dake has to ground him if he wants to win this match.
Kyle Steel: Which isn't easy in a ladder match!
Reb gets up, as does Dake. Reb goes for a stiff kick but Dake trips him up. Dake goes for an Elbow Drop, Reb quickly rolls out of the way. Both men are up and Dake grabs Reb and hits a Headlock Takedown. He gets Reb in the headlock, but Reb quickly works his way up. Reb jabs Dake a few times, runs to the ropes, goes for a Clothesline. Dake ducks it, kicks Reb in the gut. Goes for a Vertical Suplex, Reb slips down behind Dake. Reb kicks Dake's feet out from under him, Dake hits the mat, turning over. Reb executes a quick Standing Shooting Star Press, which the crowd pops for!, but this time he remembers he can't win by pinfall. He gets up and runs to the ropes, but Dake is up quickly and grabs him.. hits a huge Belly to Belly Suplex! The crowd pops huge!
Luscious Jackson: Big move by the Champ!
Shannan Lerch: Great wrestling there.
Dake takes this chance to slide out and grab a ladder. He slides back in, but doesn't set the ladder up. Instead, he waits for Reb to stand. Once Reb is up, Dake runs, ready to hit Reb with the ladder.. but Reb quickly drops back down, moving out of the way. Dake's ladder hits the ropes, causing the ladder to bounce back into Dake and stun him. Reb takes this chance to jump onto the ropes, Springboard around, and hit Dake with a Dropkick. Dake drops the ladder. He stands back up, but Reb is ready: he Dropkicks Dake on more time, sending him out of the ring. Reb then turns around, seeing the ladder and seeing himself alone in the ring. He looks up at the Title. And he smiles.
Kyle Steel: This could be Reb's chance!
The crowd boos, naturally. Reb stands up and starts setting up the ladder, and he begins climbing.
Luscious Jackson: Here he goes...
Reb gets to the top, but Dake is just about to get in the ring. And instead of grasping for the Title, Reb turns, looking at Dake. Dake catches his eye.. and both men realize they're in a precarious situation.
Shannan Lerch: Reb knew he couldn't win this early and that Dake would be coming for him. Reb is ready to jump. But what does Dake do? If he attacks, Reb has the high ground. If he doesn't.. Reb wins.
Dake slides out of the ring. Quickly. Reb gets a confused look across his face. Very, very quickly Dake runs around the ring and slides back in, on the opposite side of the ladder as Reb is. He quickly climbs up, so that Reb is facing away from him. Reb starts trying to turn so he can face Dake but Dake is too fast; he hits Reb's chest a few times from behind. He then grabs Reb's head...
Kyle Steel: High risk move coming up here!
Dake jumps off the ladder, hitting a modified Neckbreaker as the two crash to the mat! The crowd pops huge!
Luscious Jackson: Damn! Didn't take long to get high risk!
Shannan Lerch: And the shocker here is that Dake Ken scored with it, not Johnny Reb.
Luscious Jackson: If anyone knows about a "shocker" it is you, Shannan.
Both men lay on the mat for several moments. Johnny Reb holds his head in pain as Dake just tries to regain his composure. Dake gets to his feet and pulls Reb in, he grabs him.. and hits an Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex, sending Reb crashing into the ladder! The ladder, of course, falls; and now Reb clutches his back as well, which hit hard.
Kyle Steel: Johnny Reb is hurting, that's for sure.
Dake gets to his feet, and now he's confident. He sets the ladder back up and begins climbing for the gold.
Shannan Lerch: I think this is the first real chance someone has to grab the belt, this match might be over!
He's almost to the top, but Reb has pushed himself to stand up. He grabs Dake's foot, trying to pull him down. Dake kicks at Reb, but Reb keeps pulling, and eventually Dake falls back onto the mat, landing on his feet. Hes goes to Clothesline Reb, Reb ducks it and kicks him in the gut. Reb then DDTs him down to the mat! Dake rolls to the outside of the ring.
Luscious Jackson: Johnny Reb gettin' back in control now.
Reb stands, clearing cobwebs from his head. He sees Dake on the outside, standing up.. he runs at Dake, flips over the top rope, catches Dake's head with his legs and hits a Hurricanrana!
Kyle Steel: Oh damn!
The crowd pops for the big move! It seems to energize Reb, because after hitting it he gets right back up to his feet and puts his arms up. The crowd then begins to boo.
Shannan Lerch: These people sure don't like Johnny Reb, that's for sure.
Reb grabs a ladder and lays it across from the ring apron to the fan barricade. He picks Dake Ken up and shoves him onto it.
Luscious Jackson: What is this crazy mofo doing?
Reb then climbs up onto the apron and onto a turnbuckle. He taunts for a second... before flying off and hitting a Frogsplash onto Dake who is resting on the ladder! The ladder snaps in half, and it seems like Dake's body as well!
Kyle Steel: That's the Confederate Cannonball! Oh my God!
The fans chant "Holy shit!" now, and Reb lays across Dake's broken body. Reb slowly stumbles up and senses his opportunity. He slides back into the ring and as quickly as he can, sets up the ladder. And starts climbing.
Shannan Lerch: This is Johnny Reb's big break...
Reb, however, is quite hurt as well. He can't climb as fast as earlier in the match. Dake knows what's going on, so he pushes himself to at least slide into the ring. Reb is midway up the ladder and looks down to see Dake crawling towards him. Reb, of course, pushes himself to climb faster now... Dake uses the ropes to pull himself up...
Luscious Jackson: Who has the stronger will? Can Reb push himself to grab the belt before Dake pushes himself to knock Reb off?
Dake is up and he throws his body into the ladder, knocking it down! Reb had nearly reached the top and thus falls off the ladder to the outside of the ring! Another "holy shit" chant erupts throughout the arena. Dake collapses and Reb's body lay lifeless on the outside.
Kyle Steel: Guys, it is anyone's matchup now. This is a good one.
But the crowd's attention goes towards the entryway. Someone is walking out.
Shannan Lerch: What is this?
Doc Henry. Doc Henry is walking out, and he has a chair.
Luscious Jackson: Aw damnit. This has been a classic, and here comes someone to mess it up.. damn southerners!
Reb looks up, seeing Doc coming down the ramp. Reb's eyes widen as Doc Henry raises his chair.. and unfolds it. He sits it down right at the end of the entrance ramp, and sits in it, watching Reb, not saying a word.
Kyle Steel: He... he's just here to watch the match?
Shannan Lerch: We do know Doc Henry and Johnny Reb are longtime rivals, and had one of the hottest feuds in GWC history.
In this time, Dake has rolled out of the ring and is limping towards Reb. Reb turns around, but a second too late; Dake starts hitting Reb with several stiff shots!, all the while Doc Henry watches. Reb reels back and Dake grabs him and throws him in the ring. Dake then grabs another ladder from ringside and throws it into the ring.
Luscious Jackson: Damn, another one?
Dake slides in and sets the ladder up in the corner. He grabs Reb and throws her into it, so shes leaning against it. Dake takes a deep breath and backs up a few paces.. runs at Johnny Rb...
Kyle Steel: OH NO HERE IT COMES!
The Bitch Kick! Dake hits the Bitch Kick on Reb, who's body is smashed against the ladder! Reb falls down in a heap after that. Dake rubs his leg for a second before turning to the ladder that is set up in the middle of the ring. And he starts climbing.
Shannan Lerch: That's it! Dake Ken wins!
But Dake hurt his leg delivering the Bitch Kick. He can't climb that fast. One rung.. next rung.. slowly.. but Johnny Reb is getting up. Slowly.
Luscious Jackson: These men are exhausted!
Dake keeps climbing... almost to the top... Reb stands and picks up the ladder Dake had used against him... Reb rams it against Dake's bad leg! Dake screams in pain and the ladder almost falls over. Reb steadies it before ramming Dake's leg with it again! The crowd oooh's. Dake drops down a rung or two and can't bring himself to climb any more. Reb smiles, and sets up the ladder next to Dake. Reb starts climbing.
Kyle Steel: This is anyone's matchup... Dake and Reb are neck and neck... this is insane.
Reb reaches the same level Dake is at, and then surpasses him. Dake sees this, and it pushes him on. Dake starts climbing. Reb starts climbing. Both men reach the top.
Shannan Lerch: I'm so nervous for both of these men.. they're both a few feet away from the World Title..
Both Reb and Dake go to reach, but they swat each other's hands away. They swing punches at each other, but they're pretty far apart and can't quite reach each other. Dake gets as high as he can on the ladder... Reb does as well...
Luscious Jackson: Any of these guys could fall off at any moment...
Both men keep reaching, but the other keeps interfering.. finally, Dake takes a good look at Reb, takes a deep breath.... and hits a Missile Dropkick from his ladder right onto Reb!
Kyle Steel: HOLY HELL!
Reb crashes HARD down on the mat, Dake Ken on top of him! The crowd, once more, erupts in the Holy Shit chant!
Shannan Lerch: These men are DEAD! I can't believe that, that was insane!
Both men lay on the mat for quite a while. The crowd chants and cheers and claps for them, and a small "This is awesome!" chant rings throughout the arena. Slowly, but surely, Dake Ken starts getting to his feet... but the Dropkick aggrevated his already injured leg. He struggles to stand up, and nearly collapses, but catches himself before he falls back to the ground. Dake looks up at the WCF World Title, and then looks and the ladder he must climb to get to it. He approaches it and starts his ascent.
Kyle Steel: Dake Ken has a long way to go.
Shannan Lerch: I wish Zach was here to witness this awesome matchup! I'll never forgive what the former Champ, Torture, did to him, but damn is this match good!
But Johnny Reb is stirring as well. He sees Dake starting to climb, and gets to his feet as fast he can. He's slow, but not as slow as Dake, because Reb's legs are just fine. Johnny Reb starts climbing up the ladder as well, on the opposite side that Dake is.
Luscious Jackson: Both men nearin' the top.. someone gotta win this soon, they can't take another fall like that last one!
And finally, both Dake Ken and Johnny Reb reach the top of the ladder. Doc Henry watches from the outside, emotionlesss. Dake hits several blows on Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb hits several blows on Dake Ken. The ladder wobbles back and forth, threatening to tip over at any time. The fans are on their feet, mesmerized. Dake Ken hits Johnny Reb, the fans cheer! Johnny Reb hits Dake Ken, they boo. Dake hits Reb! Reb hits Dake! Yay! Boo! Yay! Boo!
Kyle Steel: These fans are REALLY into this match and so am I. Almost there...
Both Dake Ken and Johnny Reb reach their fists back real far, going for a knock out blow. Both of them lunge forward with all they've got...
Shannan Lerch: Only one man is going to connect!!
Johnny Reb hits Dake Ken square in the face. Dake's legs just can't hold him anymore and he collapses off the ladder. The fans can smell the writing on the wall and begin booing as Johnny Reb reaches up....
Luscious Jackson: Is this it?!
Finally, Johnny Reb grabs the WCF World Title.
Kyle Steel: NEW CHAMPION, NEW CHAMPION!
Shannan Lerch: JOHNNY REB HAS DONE IT! NEW WCF WORLD CHAMPION!
The fans are booing as Reb quickly climbs down the ladder, nearly falling. Once he reaches the canvas he holds the Title close to his chest, resting for several moments. Outside the ring, Doc Henry stands, doing a slow clap for Reb. A smile crosses his face as he turns and begins to leave. Dixie Pride enters the ring and helps Johnny Reb get to his feet. He's finally realizing what just happened, finally realizing that he is the new World Champion. A smile crosses his face and he holds the Title high up the air, using Dixie as support. The fans boo angrily.
Luscious Jackson: What an amazing match.. Dake Ken just took one risk too many, once he hurt his leg it gave Johnny Reb the advantage he needed to win.
Dixie raises Reb's arm one more time as Reb raises the Title in his other hand.
Kyle Steel: Fans... that's all we have time for tonight!
Luscious Jackson: I'll see you next month at Revenge, Luscious Jackson fans!
Shannan Lerch: And Kyle and I will see you at Slam! Goodnight!
The scene fades out on the new Champ.
