World Title: D-Day vs Johnny Reb
We open up on the ring announcer in the middle of the ring. The crowd is buzzing.
Ring Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, it is a pleasure to welcome back to Slam... ZACH DAVIS!
Kids by MGMT hits and the crowd erupts! Zach Davis steps out from the back, a smile on his face. He marches to the ring, walks around it, slapping hands, and then sits down next to Shannan Lerch.
Zach Davis: Shannan, it feels GREAT to be back!
Shannan Lerch: We missed you, Zach! How are you feeling?
Zach Davis: After what Torture put me through, I'm still not quite 100%, but I'm better. Definitely good enough to be back to announcing.
Shannan Lerch: Well you picked a good night to come back! We have some big matches tonight.
Zach Davis: The WCF Championship Series, which I'm glad to get to announce some of, continues with D-Day up against Johnny Reb. D-Day has shown more heart than most new competitors in WCF and it'll be good to see him get a Title opportunity.
Shannan Lerch: We know, of course, that Torture has secured his spot as the last entrant in the Championship Series... and I bet he'll be here tonight. In fact, WCF announced a segment with him, Havoc, and Death. Great.
Zach Davis: We have Exodus up against the Superfans... in this match, if Exodus loses, they're FIRED. Done. Gone. But if Exodus wins, they can either get a Tag Title shot, or a shot at two singles Titles. This is damn important.
Shannan Lerch: Exodus and the Superfans put on a great show at Ultimate Showdown, so with everything on the line here, I can't wait.
Zach Davis: We have a big six man tag. Dake Ken teams with Anthrax and Doc Henry to take on Slickie T, Prince Jimmy Dean, and Indiana Wrestler.
Shannan Lerch: Indiana Wrestler is a newcomer so I can't wait to see what he has. And, really, I can't wait to see Slickie T and Dake Ken in the ring together. They know each other from their XGWO days, and they have a mutual respect for one another.... BUT, they're both after the same prize. The World Title. They both have their eyes set on it, and you know they want to prove they're better than the other.
Shannan Lerch: We have another six man match. Truth Addiction, Tank Reaper and Chris Avery, team up with Anastasia Petrova against Apollo and the Breathtakers.
Zach Davis: We know Truth Addiction and The Breathtakers will fight at the PPV, as will Anastasia and Apollo. Anastasia seemed pretty friendly with Tank after their match last week, so they should mesh well.
Shannan Lerch: I wonder HOW friendly... ahem.
Zach Davis: We don't know, Shannan, and it isn't our business. And in our opening match.. the return of-
Shannan Lerch: LOGAN!
Zach Davis: That's right. Seth Lerch brought Logan back to WCF, though he seemed to immediately regret it. And Logan had one thing on his mind: Torture. But Seth seems intent to keep Logan in the undercard, and has him in the opening match tonight.
Shannan Lerch: Those boys are always fighting. It's okay. They'll work things out.
Zach Davis: I guess we'll see...
Seth Lerch Segment
Master of Puppets by Metallica plays, and the crowd begins to boo.
Shannan Lerch: And here comes my brother!
Zach Davis: I wonder what he has to say this week...
Seth walks to the ring with a solemn look on his face. He slaps a few hands as he slides into the ring, then calls for the music to stop.
Shannan Lerch: This is weird. Seth isn't himself.
Zach Davis: We'll see...
Seth Lerch: Well, last week... I'll be honest. I lost my cool. I said a lot of things about Logan I shouldn't have said. After all, I'm the one that brought him back into the company, right? We've been friends for damn near a decade now. So what do I have to be so pissed off about?
Shannan Lerch: See? Seth is a sensible man.
Zach Davis: Yeah, yeah. For some reason I still don't know if I'm buying it.
The crowd still boos Seth a little bit.
Seth Lerch: No, no. Seriously. Everyone knows, this isn't a secret. Everyone knows me and Logan are tight. Why else would he still be around? Lord knows any other owner of a company wouldn't put up with him!
Shannan Lerch: THAT'S true.
Seth Lerch: So here is what I'm out here to do. Logan, I want to apologize to you. So come on, get out here buddy.
Zach Davis: I don't know if Logan is the forgiving type.
And suddenly, The Struggle Within by Metallica hits.
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh. That's Logan's old music...
Zach Davis: Maybe the real Face of Treachery is back, once and for all!
And out steps Logan.
Shannan Lerch: Wait...
Only, it isn't REALLY Logan. It is a man dressed as Logan. He's wearing the tights and other gear Logan wears, and has the exact same haircut. His face even looks just like Logan's face.
Zach Davis: That's Rage! Former partner of Rick Mad and friend of Seth Lerch, and Logan's brother.
Rage walks to the ring, looking cocky, yelling "SHUT UP!" and "BOUDLE!" at the audience. They boo him mercilessly. Seth has a scared look on his face, though he's clearly just acting.
Seth Lerch: NO, NO! Logan, no, please! Don't Connect me!
"Logan" keeps walking around ringside, just yelling SHUT UP and BOUDLE at the fans.
Seth Lerch: No, Logan! Don't! I'm so scared!
But Rage isn't even getting in the ring. All he's doing is trash talking fans. Seth pretends to be checking his watch.
Seth Lerch: Alright, Logan, alright! JUST GET IN HERE!
"Logan" finally stops yelling at the fans and slides into the ring.
Seth Lerch: Now, Logan. I just wanted to say-
"Logan" grabs the mic from Seth's lips.
"Logan": SHUT UP!
Seth Lerch: No, Logan. Seriously-
Seth Lerch: Alright, Logan. Enough with the catchphrases, seriously. I wanted to say I'm sorr-
"Logan": SHUT UP, BOUDLE!!
The crowd is booing like crazy. Seth pushes "Logan", angrily.
Seth Lerch: Listen here, you catchphrase spewing nobody! I spent all this time convincing everyone around the world that you weren't just some dude named Logan, that you were "THE" Logan. But really, all you are is some mediocre wrestler that had two phrases that sold T-shirts and merchandise. I pushed you for the money that was in it for me, Logan. All you are is those two phrases. Shut up, boudle.
"Logan" looks hurt as Seth laughs and laughs... and suddenly, Chia Like, I Shall Grow hits, and the fans ERUPT!
Zach Davis: OH NO HERE COMES THE REAL LOGAN!
And out from the back walks...
Shannan Lerch: Oh my.
The man that walks out from the back is severely overweight, and he too looks just like Logan and is wearing the Logan attire.. which looks awful on him. In one hand is a DVD, and in the other hand is not just a hot dog, but a BAG of hot dogs. Seth and Rage are doing their best not to completely crack up in the ring, though the fans are booing this new Logan. He eventually gets to the ring, gets inside, and walks up to Seth.
Fat "Logan": Shut....
He opens his bag of hotdogs, pulls one out, and takes a bite out of it. He spends several moments chewing it and then swallowing, breathing heavily.
Fat "Logan": ...up.
Seth laughs and laughs, as does Rage.
Seth Lerch: Logan, man, I didn't think you'd show up tonight!
Fat "Logan": Know where else I am, Seth? On my newest DVD, "Fat Pieces of Crap That Aren't Important Anymore and Can't Stand It!" It features all the most memorable times where I walked out on scheduled matches or quit for no reason! Selling for four easy payments of $19.99 plus shipping and handling!
Fat "Logan" shoves the rest of the hot dog into his mouth after speaking. Like, three quarters of the whole hot dog. The crowd is like "ewww."
Seth Lerch: Yeah, that's great, Logan. And I'll give it to you: you sure do sell lots of DVDs! That sounds like a great one. Hey, do you have the DVD of the match where you were supposed to save WCF from Gravedigger, and you failed because of those damn hot dogs of yours?! The one where you let me down once again!? That one is one of my FAVORITES!
Fat "Logan": Yeah, and..
Chia Like, I Shall Grow plays again.
Fat "Logan": Hey!..... I'm not done yet!.....
Now, a genuine fear crosses Seth's face.
Seth Lerch: Rage, I thought you said Logan wasn't in the building yet-
And in an instant, the REAL Logan has come out from the crowd and slid into the ring! Seth sees him first and looks like he nearly pisses his pants. He drops and slides out of the ring. Logan hits Rage with several punches, but eventually Rage catches one of them. Rage goes for a Clothesline but Logan ducks it... and hits the Impact Style!! The crowd pops HUGE for the move!
Shannan Lerch: Why must my brother and my lover always fight!? Sigh...
Rage hits the mat hard and then rolls out of the ring, joining Seth. Logan then turns towards "Fat" Logan.
Zach Davis: Oh no... RUN, FAT LOGAN, RUN!
But Fat Logan can't run so much as he can waddle. He's waddling away as fast as he can, but Logan grabs him from behind... AND HITS THE CONNECTOR! The crowd cheers like madmen.
Shannan Lerch: I haven't heard the WCF fans cheer Logan this loud since.. well, last week! But still!
Fat Logan slides out of the ring as well as Logan climbs a turnbuckle, pointing at Seth and Rage, who are backpeddling up the ramp, Rage holding his jaw in pain.
Zach Davis: The fight between Seth and Logan is going to get worse before it gets much better, I'm afraid.
Seth and Rage disappear to the back, while Logan awaits Ryan Daniels.
Logan vs Ryan Daniels
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.
Shannan Lerch: Here we go!
The bell rings. The crowd is buzzing, waiting to see Logan wrestle again. He and Ryan Daniels circle each other... and tie up. Logan gets the early advantage, to a pop from the crowd, and pushes Daniels into the corner. The ref calls for a break... but as Logan steps back, he slaps Daniels in the face.
Zach Davis: He IS the Face of Treachery, after all.
Shannan Lerch: And Ryan Daniels is the Face of Got Slapped.
Zach Davis: ..That wasn't funny at all.
Daniels runs out from the corner, going for a Clothesline, but Logan ducks it. Daniels turns around and Logan hits a huge Belly to Belly Suplex! The crowd pops!
Shannan Lerch: WCF is touring the south right now, and this means great things for Logan's crowd reactions.
Logan quickly pins Ryan Daniels.
Zach Davis: Ryan Daniels doesn't go down easy, unlike my announcing partner here.
Shannan Lerch: Err..
Logan picks Daniels up and goes for a Vertical Suplex, but Daniels shifts his weight and lands behind him, and hits a Backcracker! Daniels gets up as the crowd begins to boo and starts stomping on Logan.
Zach Davis: Eh oh. Daniels in control now.
Shannan Lerch: It is very possible that Logan has a good amount of ring rust, he hasn't been a full time competitor for a little bit now. And Daniels is going to take advantage of that.
Daniels stomps and stomps for several moments. He then backs up, and yells at Logan to get up. He stands in the corner and starts stomping his foot.
Zach Davis: He's going for his Yakuza Kick!
Logan is on his feet, and Daniels runs and goes for the kick! Logan manages to avoid it, however, which gets a big pop. Daniels, after the kick and in one fluid motion, turns, grabs Logan, and executes a Uranage Backbreaker! The crowd goes from cheering to booing. Logan clutches his back, and Daniels quickly grabs his legs... and puts him in a Sharpshooter!
Shannan Lerch: Ah! That's Logan's move!
Zach Davis: No, that is Bret Hart's move.. but Logan IS known for it here in WCF. But I've never seen anyone lock it in as good as Ryan Daniels just did, Logan might be in trouble.
Daniels has Logan right in the middle of the ring, and Logan yells in pain.
Shannan Lerch: We just saw Daniels hurt Logan's back, and the Sharpshooter definitely works that back as well. Ouch. Come on baby..
Logan starts crawling towards the ropes, and of course the crowd is cheering him on. "Logan! Logan!" chants erupt.. and Logan keeps crawling, keeps crawling.. and the crowd begins to boo as Seth Lerch steps out onto the stage, mic in hand.
Zach Davis: Oh, what now!?
Seth Lerch: Come on Logan, GIVE UP! That's what you do best, isn't it? GIVE UP! TAP!
Logan is focused on getting to the ropes, but we can see the anger in his face at hearing Seth's words. Logan lunges once... lunges twice.. and grabs the ropes! The crowd cheers, and Seth twists his face in anger.
Shannan Lerch: That isn't what Seth wanted!... but I'm glad Logan made it.
Daniels is forced to release the hold. He picks Logan up and takes him to the middle of the ring, and executes a standard Backbreaker, working on Logan's already injured back. He then pins him, hooking the leg.
Logan kicks out!
Zach Davis: Close call, there. Close call.
Daniels picks Logan up and gets him in the Double Underhook position.
Shannan Lerch: He could be going for the 12th Step...
But Logan uses his strength to reverse it into a Back Bodydrop! Daniels stumbles to his feet, Logan throws him to the ropes. As he comes back, Logan locks him in a Sleeper... and hits The Connector!
Zach Davis: THERE IT IS!
The crowd pops huge! Logan falls and pins Daniels, hooking the leg.
Shannan Lerch: Logan victorious in his return!
The crowd roars as Logan stands up, raising his arms. He smiles, pointing at Seth, who frowns and leaves.
Zach Davis: Logan is one more step towards getting the match he wants again Torture.
Logan celebrates a little more before leaving the ring and heading to the back.
Truth Addiction/Anastasia Petrova vs The Breathtakers/Apollo
The first few rift of Running Free by Coheed and Cambria play through the speakers.
"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 stuggles 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 attendence, then points up and hops into the ring.
Zach Davis: Apollo in the ring..
"Taking It To The Top", a catchy, upbeat rock number 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, his sister/manager 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: Normally a larger pop from the crowd, but I think this crowd is pro-Tank and Pro-Chris Avery.
Zach Davis: That and pro-Anastasia.
Na Rasputye by Kipelov plays and the lights turn red as Anastasia Petrova prances about the stage. She shakes her booty but stays put on the stage while the lights go out and the crowd comes alive! The fans all begin to cheer as a HUGE firework display is shown. Let It Rock by Kevin Rudolf hits the airwaves. A special dance-techno remix special for the Wrestling Championship Federation and the crowd goes crazy. Avery comes out from behind the curtain with his hoodie on over his head. He's looking down and hopping around but he stops with both his hands together in front of him. Through the smoke comes Tank Reaper walking right up behind him and stops. As the music continues to play, Avery spreads out one arm in unison with a huge gold firework. He stretches out the other arm with another huge gold firework. Then Tank raises both arms in the either with the third and final bang as the firework explodes into the air and the smoke clears. With that third firework, Avery flashes his head up and the hoodie slides off and Anastasia begins to shake more of her ass and all three teammates jog down to the ring. They all slide in and taunt.
Zach Davis: Anastasia may have found some new friends! LOOK OUT!
Apollo slides in behind them, clotheslines Tank Reaper over the top rope, grabs Chris Avery and throws him over the top rope, turns around and Anastasia and Apollo go face to face. The crowd comes alive, and Apollo smiles. He strikes first with punches to the face, then a smash to the back, then picking her up and smashing her midsection over his knee. Apollo spanks her, then throws her out under the ropes as she slides right into Tank. The crowd cheers though as Tank catches her.. lifts her up.. and throws her back over the top rope and Anastasia lands right on Apollo in a cross body! Brandon grabs Avery and throws him into the ring apron, just as Tank Reaper slides in and Brandon grabs the leg of Tank so as he can't move, so Chris Hadge jumps off the top rope and hits a dropkick on the face of Tank causing him to go down to his knees. Apollo hits a running knee strike to the face of Tank crashing him down. Apollo turns around and Anastasia hits a clothesline. She runs up the top rope and moonsaults back and lands on Apollo! She wants a count, but the ref hasn't started the match yet!
Zach Davis: Well that's odd!
Shannan Lerch: Very true though, the match can't officially start!
Avery slides into the ring and clotheslines Chris Hadge out of the ring, just as Brandon jumps on the apron. Avery turns and Brandon springboards off the ropes but Avery hits a standing front kick right to the face of Brandon. He goes down hard on his back. Avery turns around and Apollo kicks him in the stomach, then hits a slap across the back of the head. Apollo throws him to the ropes and bends down, Avery springboards off the back of Apollo who was bending down, gets caught by Tank Reaper, swung around, and just as Apollo stands up and turns round, Tank throws Avery right into Apollo! The Breathtakers run at Tank Reaper to clothesline him but he ducks, and they hit the ropes, and Anastasia lowers that top rope and both of them crash out of the ring! They catch their breath as they stand up. Apollo is thrown into Tank, and Reaper back body drops Apollo over his head, and over the top rope and Apollo crashes on the Breathtakers! They all three get up just as Avery finds his feet. Tank stands near the ropes, Chris Avery hits the ropes, sprints full speed, and Tank bends down, picks up Avery mid-run, and throws him behind him like a backwards basketball shot, and Avery goes flying through the air and crashes down on his opponents!! They all get up, and Anastasia stands in the ring and the crowd goes crazy. Tank says "LETS DO THIS!" Anastasia runs, and Tank catches her, spins around a few times, then drops her down below, and she crashes on Avery, and the Breathtakers, and Apollo! The crowd goes nuts! Tank Reaper then points at all the guys. Reaper looks around and the crowd begins to chant "DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!" He nods, and hits the ropes, he runs full speed, gets to the ropes and Brandon, Chris, Anastasia, Apollo and Avery all duck and dive out of the way. Tank Reaper stops just in time! Everyone and their grandfathers start to laugh. Tank steps over the top rope and stands on the apron, Apollo stands up and turns around and Tank jumps in the air but Apollo leaps in mid-air too and hits the Shattered Star!~@~! Tank and Apollo land hard however, and are laid out!
Zach Davis: Wow! Apollo saw that one coming, and had just enough time to defend it!
Shannan Lerch: Took a nasty hit however, both Tank and Apollo are out! Brandon and Anastasia are in the ring!
Brandon ducks a clothesline from Anastasia and returns with a running front dropkick! The ref looks around and notices everyone kind of looks to be in a stale form of tag team, so he rings the bell! The match has officially started, and Brandon throws Anastasia to the ropes where he hits a few strikes, then hits a Tornado DDT using the ropes for extra-leaping ability! The ref counts the pin fall, but only a two! Anastasia is picked up to her feet, and Brandon throws her to the ropes, where Avery tags himself in. Brandon hits a spinebuster, but Avery grabs Brandon from behind, and hits a stinger-death drop like maneuver. Avery stands up and hits a leaping elbow drop!
Zach Davis: The athleticism of Avery astounds me!
Shannan Lerch: These six wrestlers are full of talent too though!
Chris Hadge gets into the ring, but the ref backs him up, and Apollo gets in the ring and hits a HUGE stiff clothesline on Avery! Anastasia dropkicks Apollo out of the ring though, and then Brandon throws her out of the ring, and then turns around and Avery picks up Brandon and smashes his back in the ring corner. Avery hits a hurricanrana and pins Brandon! The ref counts the pin fall!
Zach Davis: Avery wins for Truth Addiction and Anastasia!
Shannan Lerch: Wait look out!
Apollo slides in and hits a Shattered Star on Chris Avery! Anastasia rolls into the ring and Apollo gets up and ducks her clothesline, she hits the ropes and then receives a Shattered Star from Apollo! The crowd boos as he slides out of the ring when Tank Reaper slides in! They cheer as Let It Rock plays and Apollo smiles.
Zach Davis: What an odd yet entertaining match up!
Shannan Lerch: That's for sure!
Tank grabs Anastasia Petrova and helps her to her feet. She smiles at him, and grabs him around the neck. Anastasia leans in to give him a big kiss.
Zach Davis: Oh no, don't do it!-
But right before their lips meet, blood pours from the sky once again. It drenches both Tank and Anastasia, and falls for several moments. Once it stops, Tank and Anastasia look around. Anastasia's boobs are now drenched and wet. Tank looks at them and his eyes go wide, but he quickly slides out of the ring and runs to the back.
Shannan Lerch: Good for Tank! He didn't want to get back into his sex addict ways!
Anastasia screams angrily and leaves the ring.
Jamais Vu by Dredg hits the speakers and the crowd boo's as hard as they ever could. Out from behind the curtain steps Havoc and Death who do their respective taunts at the top of the stage just as Torture walks out from behind the curtain and takes the turn to the stage. The three men stare out into the sold out crowd and soak in the boo's.
Zach Davis: Well we knew they were going to make an appearance and we heard they have something to say..
Shannan Lerch: Doesn't mean we want to hear it!
Zach Davis: That is true... and believe me, I don't want them anywhere near me.
Shannan Lerch: Didn't have a problem coming out last week, did ya?
Zach Davis: That's when I saw Torture.. and Havoc was an oversight, but all three of them? Look at Death! He's a monster, and right now, I just want to stay away.
Shannan Lerch: They're in the ring and asking for microphones... but look at Torture.. he won't stop staring at you!
Zach Davis: Well, he had it coming! Put me in the hospital for weeks! I hate to say it, but I had to get even with that punk.
Shannan Lerch: Havoc is speaking first, Zach!
Havoc: I'll make this short and sweet! I told everyone in the back that I'm going to make them pay. And come hell or high water, each and every one of you in the back right now WILL pay soon enough. Slickie T runs around this place and talks how he's a fighting Champion, and he'll defend it anywhere and anytime. Well I have news for you Slickie T. How about next week on Slam you put your United States Championship title up against ME!
The crowd boos.
Zach Davis: Well that's interesting! Havoc just thinks he can go for any title he wants?
Shannan Lerch: When you have Torture in your ear, I think you start to believe in anything.
Zach Davis: True. And Slickie T IS a fighting champion, I'm pretty confident he'd be happy to take Havoc on.
Shannan Lerch: What's this!?
Zach Davis: Here comes Rick Mad!
Torture, Death, and Havoc all turn towards the entranceway as Rick Mad steps out, microphone in hand. The crowd gives him a mixed reaction.
Rick Mad: Calm down, calm down, guys. I'm not here to fight tonight. I'm here to make an announcement. Well, I should say, I WAS here to make an announcement. But now, after hearing what Havoc just said, I'm here for two things.
The crowd talks amongst themselves, and Havoc looks around, looking confused.
Rick Mad: My associate Mikami is the best US Champion this company has ever seen. So I know a little bit about the US Title. And Havoc, I've known you for quite a while as well. So, if good old Slickie T will have me... I'm putting myself in that little Title match next week!
The crowd pops.
Rick Mad: That's right! Next week is going to be a good week for me, because that brings me to my announcement. This one is for you, Torture.
Torture raises an eyebrow, listening to Rick.
Rick Mad: I just talked to Seth... and you will no longer be facing Johnny Reb at Revenge for the World Title.
Torture basically yells "WHAT?!" and is about to kill someone. Death and Havoc try and get him to calm down, but he's furious.
Rick Mad: ...because you will be facing the NEW World Champion, Mikami!
Mixed reaction from the crowd; Torture looks confused.
Rick Mad: That's because next week, Mikami will be the last entrant in the WCF Championship Series before Revenge! And he's going to take that belt off Reb, and he's going to beat you at Revenge-
The lights go out.
Shannan Lerch: Oh, what's this?
The WCFtron shows the arm of the same recovering coma patient from a couple weeks ago. His index finger is twitching, as it was last time. Then, he moves his third finger. This continues across the entire hand, and then he does the same in reverse. The pattern is repeated, faster and faster, until the video suddenly stops and is replaced by a block of text.
I haven't forgotten what you did.
See you at Revenge!
Rick, having just seen the video, is suddenly very flustered.
Rick Mad: I don't know WHAT this guy is talking about and IT DOESN'T MATTER, I'm going to help Mikami win the World Title and that is all that matters!
Zach Davis: Rick Mad, seeming kind of defensive there...
Rick throws the mic down and leaves, leaving the crowd buzzing. Torture gets on the mic now.
Torture: Rick Mad thinks I'm worried about Mikami!? Theres a lot of loud mouth, selfish pieces of crap in the back who think they're on the same level.. as ME! Guys like Mikami, guys like Reckless Jack.
The crowd kind of pops.
Torture: ... Guys like Reckless Jack think they can resurrect their career by adding a nostalgic nickname to raise their stock in Wrestling Championship Federation. Listen RJ. I've beaten you before.. and I'll beat you again. You want to take aim at me? Pfft. Jack, you're a nobody now. You're irrelevant.
Torture: I have a message for you, Jack, next time you see your beautiful, loving, mother of your children, you ask her what it's like.. to feel the Tortures Device.
Zach Davis: Oh you're kidding me! How sick!
Shannan Lerch: That's low! It was low then, and it's low now! Makes me sick too!
Torture: Then we have Dake Ken. *Larger crowd reaction than Reckless Jack. Pretty good pop* A man who wasn't even supposed to be in MY... in MY! World Championship match, and he STEALS... DAKE STEALS! My Championship title when he pins poor old Johnny Reb. You know, there's a lot of talk about you Dake, and it's not just coming from me. You see, I haven't exactly told anyone the truth on why I never got my Rematch Clause after the belt was stolen from me. Seth Lerch called me on Monday Morning less than twelve hours after Reb was pinned by Dake Ken for the Championship belt that still belongs around my waist. Seth passed around the phrase cash considerations a lot, told me to lay low for a while until I was back on my feet mentally and physically. Seth assumed that I wouldn't be exactly normal in my head after the match, and maybe he was right, but the fact of the matter is, he told me he was removing my rematch clause from my WCF contract and then giving me a large lump sum of cash because Seth thought Dake Ken would lose to me in a Rematch and Seth wanted Dake to hold the World Championship belt longer than four weeks!
The crowd boos.
Zach Davis: What? That doesn't even make sense!
Shannan Lerch: Why would my brother say that?! I don't get it!
Zach Davis: I sure hope Torture explains this one!
Torture: Seth told me that Ratings would go up if I stayed off television, that if Dake Ken was to be forced to fight me, that I would not only take the title right off his waist, but I would destroy him within inches of his life so fast that you would have to play back the pay per view in slo-motion just to see me get the three count. *Boo's.* That's right, Seth Lerch, you're god and savior of Wrestling Championship Federation.. said those exact words about your hero.. Dake Ken.
Zach Davis: In other words, Seth was protecting Dake Ken? Wow.
Shannan Lerch: I know my brother to be a straight-shooter, but do you honestly think my brother, Seth, said those exact words?
Zach Davis: One thing we know about Torture is that he hardly, or at the very least rarely lies. He may steal, he may cheat to win, but he never lies.
Torture: Speaking of your.. heroes..
Large Reaction overcomes Torture as the crowd knows exactly who he's speaking of.
Big reaction. Loud pop.
Zach Davis: That's right fans! Logan came back last week on Slam, and though he has to start at the bottom, he's wanting to dethrone the king, in his words, Torture!
Torture: Seth Lerch brings back Logan and for what? For ratings? For Championship history? For the rumored Wrestling Championship Federation Hall of Fame? What is Logan going to save WCF from this time? His laziness? His work ethic? Logan is a grade A selfish, lazy, egotistical son of a bitch and YOU ALL KNOW IT!
Very loud boo's.
Shannan Lerch: A very pro-Logan crowd tonight.
Torture: You sit there on your fat asses and you cheer a guy who has not only walked out on you numerous times, but has literally SHIT.. SHIT all over this company. You cheer him. Hell, you LOVE him, but the matter of fact is simple; If Logan ever reaches the level I am today, I will not only defeat him, I will once and for all put Logan in his place in WCF History.. and that's the bottom of the barrel.
The Tort stares out into the sell-out crowd as they loudly boo him and his intense look of rage.
Zach Davis: Torture is not happy with Logan.
Shannan Lerch: Very true observation.
Zach Davis: Thanks, Shannan.
Torture: And last but not least, we have your current WCF Heavyweight Champion of the World. Johnny.. Reb.
Mixed reactions, though the cheers are much louder than the boo's.
Torture: Johnny Reb is doing nothing but tainting MY! World Championship title. What once was a true and astonishing piece of gold is now some lackluster, curtain-jerker, belt that he proudly displays in front of you scum.
Torture: At Revenge, when Johnny Reb walks down that isle with MY! World Championship title I will show you, and him, that Johnny Reb is a fluke..
BAAD COOMMPPAANNYYY!!! ALLLWAAYSS ONNN THE RUUNN!!
Zach Davis: Oh yeah!! Business is about to pick up!
Shannan Lerch: I was wondering who was going to come out and make Torture shut up!!
Zach Davis: He's here! Our WCF World Champion; JOHNNY REB!
Reb casts a cynical gaze toward the stage as Johnny Reb emerges from the back, Dixie at his side and the World Title draped over one shoulder. The crowd manages a respectable pop for Johnny as the music dies away and he raises a microphone to his lips.
Johnny Reb: Y’know, Torture, I think we’ve all heard just about enough outta you. You been ridin’ roughshod over this fine company almost your whole career, an’ it’s time someone put a stop to it.
Reb pauses a moment as the audience voices their agreement.
Johnny Reb: Now, I find myself in a ... unique position. As World Champion, I am, by default, a hero of the common people. I am obligated to protect my title from those who would defile it, an’ everythin’ it stands for. I’m no shinin’ beacon of righteousness, I’ll admit, but in my hands, this title represents more than it ever did when you held it. An’ I’ll be damned if I let it fall into your possession again.
The fans roar approval once more, taking longer to quiet as Johnny paces the stage patiently.
Johnny Reb: The last couple of weeks, you an’ your cohorts have seen fit to unscrupulously assault me in some twisted effort to force me into a role I never considered, until now. If you’re lookin’ for some paragon of virtue, you got the wrong guy. Then again, sometimes it takes a bad man to do what a good man can’t.
The Inveterate Confederate gazes out over the audience, who are hanging on his every word, then turns his attention to Torture, smiling malevolently.
Johnny Reb: The villain demands a hero; and so I will take up that mantle. A crusader unrestrained by the bounds of decency or integrity, I can use your own tactics against you without any remorse. And in Birmingham, I’ll show you exactly why I’m the champion...
Bad Company hits the Speakers and Torture stands in one place obviously frustrated that Reb interrupted Torture's speech. Reb takes off from the stage to the great ovation from the sold out Arena. Death and Havoc try to talk Torture down as the scene fades to a commercial.
Dake Ken/Anthrax/Doc Henry vs Slickie T/Prince Jimmy Dean/Indiana Wrestler
Zach Davis: And now our second six man tag of the night, and we get to see Dake Ken and Slickie T in action!
"Bow Down" by Born of Osiris hits on the PA system. 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. 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.
Shannan Lerch: Former World Champion, Dake Ken. Looking to get rid of that "former" part.
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.
Zach Davis: Anthrax, who I must say is quite an evil dude.
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...
Shannan Lerch: Doc Henry. Like Dake, a rival of Johnny Reb.
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.
Zach Davis: And here is Slickie T! The United States Champion, looking to move upwards here in WCF.
Animals by Nickleback hits, and Indiana Wrestler runs out to the ring from the back, slapping hands and getting the fans excited.
Shannan Lerch: Newcomer, Indiana Wrestler. Weird name.
The lights go and Jerry "The King" beginnings of the music of Lawler that play. A single shines of the projector in a passageway and the empty Prince Force with crowbar to Dean is removed majestically in a golden car for two white horses. The multitude is silent in the admiration in the grandeur of the entrance. The prince Jimmy Dean is thrown around the ring while the multitude looks in silence on its car in the admiration. The leaves slowly of the carriage and elegantly walks in the ring and backups in the center as the alone shines of projector in it. The light goes and he expects his adversary to be approached.
Zach Davis: Prince Jimmy Dean... one of the most bizarre individuals we've come across here in WCF.
All six men are in the ring now. The teams talk amongst themselves about who should start the match. Dean wants to start for his team, and his teammates allow it; Anthrax starts for his.
Shannan Lerch: There's the bell, let's go!
Anthrax runs at Dean, who is caught unaware, and tackles him down. Anthrax hits several punches, picks him back up and throws him to the ropes. Anthrax then Clotheslines Dean down and starts kicking at him.
Zach Davis: Looks like Anthrax is not a fan of Jimmy Dean!
Anthrax picks Dean up and then hits a Backbreaker! He pins Jimmy Dean, but only gets a two. He then picks Dean up, puts him in a Headlock, and tags in Doc Henry. Henry gets in and as Anthrax keeps the headlock locked in, Henry kicks Dean in the stomach. Anthrax releases the hold and gets back onto the apron. Henry then DDTs Dean hard into the mat! Smiling, he pins Dean.
Slickie T gets into the ring and kicks Henry off. He then grabs Dean and pulls him into their corner before getting back onto the apron.
Shannan Lerch: Smart move, now Dean can get the tag!
Slickie T lets Indiana Wrestler get himself tagged in.
Zach Davis: To me, it seems like Slickie T wants to see what these newer guys have to offer.
Indiana Wrestler gets into the ring, and Henry is already up. The two meet and tie up. Henry then takes Indiana down with a Neckbreaker. He follows up by picking up Indiana Wrestler and putting him on the top rope... Henry then begins climbing up with him... and BAM! Superlex!
Shannan Lerch: Good move, well executed!
Henry pins Indiana.
Again, Slickie T breaks up the pinfall before getting back onto the apron.
Zach Davis: Slickie T is quite the competitor. He doesn't want to lose this match.
Henry picks Indiana Wrestler up and hooks him for the Gambler's Hand, but Indiana Wrestler knows its coming and elbows Doc in the head several times. Indiana gets out of it, dives towards his corner, and tags in Slickie T! The crowd pops.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the United States Champion!
Doc turns towards Slickie T and is met with a Clothesline. Doc gets back up, goes for a Clothesline of his own, Slickie T ducks it and hits a Bulldog! He raises his arms for a quick second as the fans cheer him, glances at Dake for a second, smiling, then turns his attention back to Doc Henry. Slicke picks Henry up, but Henry counters with a thumb to the eye!
Zach Davis: Ah! Doc Henry is shameless.
Slickie T reels back, his hand at his eye, in pain. Doc turns, and Dake Ken is holding out his hand from the apron.
Shannan Lerch: Dake Ken wants in this match! He wants to compete against Slickie T!
Doc approaches his corner, but once he's close enough Anthrax reaches out and tags himself in. Anthrax jumps into the match, and Dake Ken yells at him, not understanding why Anthrax would do it. The fans boo him like crazy, having been excited for the Dake/Slickie matchup. Anthrax shrugs, and as Slickie T is getting up, Anthrax grabs him and executes a Belly to Back Suplex!
Zach Davis: Beautiful move from Anthrax, thought I still don't believe he tagged himself in like that.
Anthrax picks Slickie T up, but Slickie T shoves Anthrax away. Enraged, Anthrax marches back at him but Slickie hits a Drop Toehold, which sends Anthrax down to the mat. Slickie goes to follow up on the move, but Colton jumps up onto the apron.
Shannan Lerch: What is Colton doing up there?!
Slickie turns to Colton and tells him to get down. Colton yells back, and the few seconds are all Anthrax needs; he rolls Slickie T up from behind!
No! Slickie kicks out.
Zach Davis: Almost saw an upset there!
Slickie and Anthrax are both on their feet, and Slickie kicks Anthrax hard in the gut and executes a Snap Suplex. He then turns and tags Jimmy Dean back into the match.
Shannan Lerch: Here comes the Prince!
Anthrax is up, and Dean throws him to the ropes. And as Anthrax bounces off the side adjacent to his corner, Dake Ken tags himself in.
Zach Davis: What goes around, comes around!
Jimmy Dean hits Anthrax with a Back Bodydrop, but Dake gets in the ring and grabs him. Dake sends Dean into the ropes now, and then executes an Arm Drag. Dean gets back up and Dake follows up with grabbing him and quickly Powerbombing him back to the mat! He signals that he's going to end the match.
Shannan Lerch: Dake Ken has it here, he's gonna hit his Uranage Slam!
Dake picks Jimmy Dean up and hooks him fuor it... and FROM OUT OF NOWHERE Slickie T hits him with a Superkick!
Zach Davis: That's the Omerta! Out of nowhere!
Shannan Lerch: We've been waiting to see some action between Slickie T and Dake Ken, and it finally happened! Slickie T was saving the match for his team!
Dake Ken drops to the mat, nearly knocked out. Dean falls as well. Both men crawl towards their respective corners.
Zach Davis: Who's going to make it first?
Both Dake and Dean make it at the same time. Dake tags in Doc Henry as Dean tags in Indiana Wrestler. Both men meet in the middle of the ring, Indiana goes for a Clothesline but Brown ducks it. He grabs him and hits the Gambler's Hand!
Shannan Lerch: Well, that's the move Dake Ken was going for, but it worked out for Doc Henry!
Doc quickly pins Indiana.
Zach Davis: Doc Henry, Anthrax, and Dake Ken win this match!
Slickie T looks towards Dake Ken, who had rollen out of the ring and resting on the mat.
Shannan Lerch: Dake Ken's team won the match, but after that brutal Omerta from Slickie T... I'm not sure if either of them really got the upper hand tonight, Zach.
Zach Davis: I agree. And we didn't get to see the two of them really got at it yet like we're waiting for!
Slickie T leaves the arena as Doc Henry and Anthrax celebrate in the ring and Dake Ken begins to regain composure. Doc Henry offers his hand to Anthrax, congratulating him on a job well done... Anthrax looks at his hand, laughs, and spits at Doc Henry's feet. Doc frowns, but turns the other way, avoiding a conflict. Anthrax grabs him from behind and hits his Torque finisher!
Shannan Lerch: Hey!
Zach Davis: Yeah! Doc Brown didn't deserve that?
Shannan Lerch: Doc Brown?
Zach Davis: Oops. I watched Back to the Future this weekend, my bad. But still, Anthrax's actions are uncalled for.
Anthrax's manager Colton joins him in the ring and the two look down at Henry, yelling before exitting the ring.
Shannan Lerch: I think we might have a bit of a feud on our hands.
Exodus vs The Superfans
"When Worlds Collide" by Powerman 5000 hits the speakers and Brian Borroughs immediately walks out and stands at the top of the ramp. He points out at the crowd hyping them up when Gravedigger and Chester walk out from the back.
Brian walks down the ramp followed by his brothers, Gravedigger and Chester. Brian walks up the ring steps followed by Gravedigger while Chester runs and slides under the bottom rope. Brian holds the ropes open for Gravedigger and then climbs in behind him.
Gravedigger and Chester pose on opposite turnbuckles, taunting the crowd. Brian stands in the middle looking like he's all business. Gravedigger and Chester jump off the turnbuckles and huddle in a corner with Brian to discuss strategy.
Zach Davis: Here is Exodus. Gravedigger has terrorized WCF since we reopened, and this is WCF's chance to finally get rid of him.
Shannan Lerch: On the flip side, it is Gravedigger's chance to get a World Title shot... or Tag Title shot.
Hysteria by Muse hits, and the fans erupt! Marc, Mark, and Tiffany Jane all step out.
Zach Davis: This is the first time we're seeing the Superfans wrestle as themselves, rather than mimicking a popular tag team. It should prove to be interesting.
Marc is wearing a replica Million Dollar Belt over his shoulder as he walks to the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Well, Marc bought that for last week and no one got to use it, so I guess they decided to bring it back out tonight.
Zach Davis: Thank God they decided not to bring Virgil, however.
Mark and Marc slide into the ring, but immediately as they do Chester and Gravedigger run at them and begin stomping!
Shannan Lerch: Exodus, not above shortcuts, that's for sure.
Even as Gravedigger and Chester stomp at the Superfans, Mark and Marc begin working their way back up, using the ropes. Once they're back up, Mark and Marc fire back with lefts and rights of their own. Marc picks up the Million Dollar belt and runs at Gravedigger, hitting him right in the face with it!
Zach Davis: The match hasn't technically started yet, so the Superfans can get away with that for now!
Mark runs at Chester and Clotheslines him against the ropes and out of the ring, with both men tumbling to the floor. Now that only two men are left in the ring, the bell sounds.
Shannan Lerch: NOW we've officially started.
The ref grabs the Million Dollar belt and hands it to Tiffany Jane. Marc kicks at Gravedigger a few times before picking him up, kicking him in the gut and hitting a Snap Suplex, taking him back down. He then executes an elbow drop. He stomps Gravedigger a few more times, but Gravedigger is starting to come to. Gravedigger works his way up, and soon blocks a shot from Marc. Gravedigger now hits a few shots of his own and goes to throw Marc into the ropes, but Mark manages to throw Gravedigger instead. As GD is coming back Marc goes for a Hurricanrana but Gravedigger reverses it into a Powerbomb!
Zach Davis: Good move by Gravedigger, I hate to say it.
Gravedigger pins Marc. One, two.... Marc kicks out. Both Mark and Chester have now moved to their respective teams corners. Gravedigger grabs Marc and puts him in a headlock, then pulls him into his corner and tags in Chester. Chester gets into the ring and kicks Marc in the gut as Gravedigger releases the headlock, and then grabs Marc, hitting a Belly to Belly Suplex, sending Marc flying back into the middle of the ring. Chester walks over to him and looks like he's going to kick him, but instead quickly turns and runs at Mark, knocking him off the apron. The crowd boos as Chester turns back towards Marc and starts kicking him again.
Shannan Lerch: Seems like Exodus is firmly in control here.
Chester then grabs Marc's legs and turns him over, twisting him into a Boston Crab.
Zach Davis: Chester working over Marc's legs... this doesn't look good for the Champions.
Marc crawls towards the ropes, but before he can make it Mark is back in the ring. Mark runs at Chester and kicks him stiff right in the back of the head! Chester, dazed, falls to the mat after releasing the hold. Mark gets back on the apron and waits for Marc to make the tag. The fans begin clapping, urging him on. And seemingly energized by them, Marc dives and tags Mark in!
Shannan Lerch: Here comes Mark!
Mark gets in as the fans cheer. Chester is up, and Mark picks him up with a Scoop Slam before dropping an elbow. Mark then picks Chester up, who is dazed, and bounces off the ropes, running towards him.. and hits a Running Boot to the face! Chester flies back into a corner, where Gravedigger awaits and tags himself in.
Zach Davis: Here comes Gravedigger again, and it looks like he means business.
Gravedigger comes in with a head of steam and goes for a Big Boot, but Mark grabs it and executes a Rolling Leglock!
Shannan Lerch: Damn! Painful move, this could be it!
Gravedigger yells in pain, but is positioned so that in a few moments he can crawl towards the ropes and grab them. The ref forces Mark off. Mark gets up and picks Gravedigger up as well. Gravedigger pushes Mark off, then kicks him in the gut and hits a big Powerbomb! His leg nearly buckles, but he hits the move.
Zach Davis: Gravedigger's leg IS weakened after that Leglock.
Gravedigger picks Mark up and lifts him up onto his shoulders... he executes the Embalmer!
Shannan Lerch: Ahh! This could be it for The Superfans!
Gravedigger pins Mark, hooking the leg.
Zach Davis: No! Mark kicks out!
Mark gets slowly up from the canvas after barely kicking out of that pin attempt. Gravedigger goes to the outside and grabs a chair.
Shannan Lerch: Oh come on! He's grabbing a chair now?
Zach Davis: He better be careful, your brother said it didn't matter the outcome of the match.
Chester sees what Gravedigger is doing and distracts the referee as Gravedigger gets back into the ring. Mark turns around and is drilled by the chair from Gravedigger. He tosses it out of the ring as the referee turns around, hearing the noise. Gravedigger shrugs, points to Mark laying on the mat and the referee slides into position as Gravedigger covers him for the pin.
Zach Davis: NO NO! Not like this! Gravedigger and Chester will receive title shots of their choice!
1...2...the count is broken up by Marc as he pulls Gravedigger out of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: They must have forgotten about Marc who was on the outside.
Marc lays a few rights to Gravedigger and then tosses him back into the ring. Gravedigger gets up as does Mark. Gravedigger kicks Mark in the gut and lifts him onto his shoulder.
Zach Davis: This is it! He's going for the Death Driver! After that chair shot, there's no way he's getting up from this!
Marc is up on the apron and grabs the foot of Mark and pulls on him some. Gravedigger loses his balance and Mark uses the momentum to shove Gravedigger into the turnbuckle chest-first. Chester runs around and pulls Mark off the apron and the two begin trading rights on the outside. Gravedigger staggers back into Mark who hits him with a Cheap Pop. The crowd does the same thing as Mark mounts the turnbuckle and flies off hitting the Spoiler Alert! The referee slides into position....
3!! The match is over!
Before the Superfans' music hits, Master of Puppets hits the airwaves and out walks Seth Lerch. He has a microphone.
Seth Lerch: A deal's a deal, Gravedigger! You lost the match, you lose your WCF contract. Security come escort this man out of here.
Gravedigger gestures for a microphone and Chester grabs one from ringside and tosses it to Gravedigger as security starts walking down the ramp.
Gravedigger: That's fine, Seth. You win this round. But this isn't the last WCF has seen of the Epitome of Hardcore and my brother Chester. You haven't seen the last of the Borroughs brothers. Mark my words. When you least expect it. When it would inconvenience you the most. When it's the worst time possible, that's when we'll return. We'll return with a vengea---
Gravedigger is cut off as security takes the microphone from him and escorts Gravedigger and Chester to the back.
Zach Davis: This is, finally, the end to an epic struggle that has gripped WCF since the beginning. Gravedigger is gone for good.
Dake Ken/Seth Lerch Segment
The scene opens up outside Seth Lerch's office. The door is open, Seth is on the phone.
Seth Lerch: So... okay. Next week then, yeah... perfect. I'm glad I got a hold of you, it'll be great to see you back in WCF, we'll have all the paperwork done by then... yeah. Okay, bye.
Seth hangs up the phone. And moments later... Dake Ken approaches. The crowd pops instantly.
Zach Davis: Hm. What's this about?
Seth hears someone approaching.
Seth Lerch: Who is it? If it's Logan-
Dake Ken: It's Dake Ken.
Seth Lerch: Hm.. alright, come in.
Dake enters Seth's office.
Dake Ken: We need to talk...
Dake shuts the door behind him, and we go back to the announcers.
Shannan Lerch: What's going on?
Zach Davis: I have a question or two coming out of that segment. Who was Seth talking to? And what did Dake want to talk about?
Shannan Lerch: I have a feeling these questions and more will be answered next week!
D-Day vs Johnny Reb
Dead and Gone by T.I> ft Juston Timberlake plays in the speakers. The lights are dim.The lights flash on to D-Day walking out to the top of the ramp and falls on his knees and throws his arms in the air, as soon as he throws them in the air fire works go off and surround him. The screen shows all of D-Day moments of his dead and forgotten special move. As also the screen shows a ring then the words in white and in cursive, the words D-Day. When D-Day get in the ring he raises his hands to his name on the screen.
Zach Davis: Day in the ring. What a shot at the World Champion for Day!
Shannan Lerch: That's right Zach. Big opportunity!
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, with the WCF title around his waist, 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, removing the belt from around his waist and raising it high overhead for all to see.
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.
Zach Davis: Listen to this crowd! They love Reb!
Shannan Lerch: Reb had some not so nice things to say to Torture earlier in the evening. Reb even called himself a hero, and Torture was the villian, and I have news for Reb! I'm on his side! Torture is one sick son of a bitch, that needs to be shut up once and for all!
Zach Davis: Calm down, Lerch, this match is officially underway!
The ref demands the bell to be rung as Day starts the match out with the advantage, with a headlock, but Reb shoves Day off of him into the ropes and Reb hits a mean clothesline. Reb hits the rope and then a quick elbow drop. Reb goes for the pin. Not even a two count. Reb throws Day in the corner, and goes for an attack, but Day counters it and begins right hands on Reb! Day hits a dropkick right in the corner! Reb stumbles out, and Day hits a sidekick to the face. Reb goes down, and Day pins. Just a two count. Day picks up Reb and throws him to the ropes but Reb ducks the clothesline of Day, and Reb hits a neckbreaker! The crowd goes crazy for Reb when he stands up and taunts. The cheers quickly turn to boo's however, as the spotlight on the stage show Torture slowly walking out from behind the curtain with a cold, blue, steel chair in hand. Torture stops on the stage though, just above the ramp and stares right at Reb. Reb ducks an oncoming attack from Day, and when Day rebounds off the ropes, Reb leaps in the air with a flying clothesline! Reb points out at Torture and smiles. The crowd loves it.
Zach Davis: Torture is out here now, for no god damn reason!
Shannan Lerch: Probably upset that Reb called him names earlier!
Zach Davis: Let's hope he doesn't try to ruin this match now either!
Shannan Lerch: One can only hope.
Reb picks up Day and throws him to the corner. Reb walks right into a float over DDT from Day! Day pops up and leaps to the top rope, he turns towards Reb and hits a huge splash! Day pins, but it's only a two count, Day picks Reb up and throws him to the corner, Reb stumbles out, and Day begins an onslought of kicks! Day goes for the money-kick just like his trademark, but Reb ducks it and grabs Day from behind. Reb goes for a German Suplex, but Day lands on his feet behind Reb. Reb slowly turns around and gets a judo hip toss! Day picks up both legs from Reb and slaps on a Boston Crab! Right in the middle of the ring. Day locks it on and makes sure the ref is checking on Reb. The crowd chants for Reb to get out of it. Torture smiles as he looks on. Reb reaches the ropes and Day let's go. Day taunts to the crowd that the title is his, the crowd doesn't like it one bit. Day picks up Reb and hits a nut-cracker of his leg, Reb stands still as Day delivers one stiff Enziguri! Reb goes down, and Day hits the top rope again. Day hits a huge frog splash this time! Makes the pin!
Zach Davis: It could be over!
Shannan Lerch: One! Two!
Zach Davis: NEWWORLDCHAMPIONNO! Reb kicked up!
Shannan Lerch: That was SUPER close!
Day slaps the ring mat and stand sup right in the refs face! The ref gets shoved from Day, but the ref shoves back, and Day gets rolled up from Reb! Pin fal! One! Two! Kickout. Day gets up and hits a sit out dropkick to the head and chest of Reb! Day gets up and looks out at Torture. Day isn't exactly sure why Torture is there. Day turns around and Reb hits a snapmare, and then turns it into a dragon sleeper right in hte middle of the ring!
Shannan Lerch: SWEET WATER SLEEPER!
Day stands up out of the move, however, and fights Reb off, Day hits the ropes, but Reb grabs Day by the neck, floats over to behind him, and slams him down on his back. Reb stands up and smiles at Torture. The Tort is getting frustrated. Reb picks up Day, locks on an armbar, climbs up the ropes and nails the Stars and Bars! However, this time Reb just hits the chop and Day stumbles across the ring. Reb walks right up behind Day and hits the Inverted Frankensteiner! Reb taunts to the crowds approval! Dixie is cheering Reb on as well! Reb goes to the top rope and sizes Day up. Reb leaps in the air, but Day rolls out of the way, and Reb lands on his feet and action rolls out of whatever he was going to do. Reb is on his feet, turns around and ducks Day's crossbody! Day lands on the turnbuckles! Reb goes to the apron, picks up Day as he climbs up the top rope. Reb stands Day up, and from the top rope, Reb hits a sunset sitout powerbomb! Reb pins! One! Two!
Zach Davis: Day kicks out! Wow!
Shannan Lerch: What a move!
Reb catches his breath, and stands Day up again but Day sits out, and pulls on the trunks of Reb and throwing him through the ropes to the outside of the ring. Day rolls out and throws Reb on the guardrail! Then into the ring post! Then into the ring apron. The count is past five, so Day rolls in, stops the count, then rolls back out. Reb goes for a wild punch, but Day blocks it, and smashes Reb's head right into the announce table! Day throws Reb right into the ring. Day slides in and starts kicking Reb, going for once again his trademark. Reb stumbles, turns around, and Day delivers one stiff side kick ending it all! D for Destruction! Day doesn't pin however, and taunts that it is ALL over. Day picks up Reb and goes for the Samoa Slam, but Reb gets out of it, gives a sidekick to Day, and then quickly hits the ropes for a moonsault leg drop! Reb pins Day!
One ! Two !
Zach Davis: Three! It's over! Johnny Reb retains the World Heavyweight Championship title!
Shannan Lerch: Day put up a good fight, but Reb was just too strong on this one.
Zach Davis: Wait a minute, the music just cut out, Torture is slowly moving down the ramp!
Shannan Lerch: Oh god.. Why!?
Torture walks down the ramp in his wrestling gear and T-shirt. Torture stops at the bottom of the ramp. Dixie is on the outside of the ring but over in the corner, as she's not understanding what's going on. Day walks up the ramp and Torture gives the evil eye. Day continues up the ramp. Torture sizes up Reb whose in the middle of the ring. The crowd comes alive when Reb yells at Torture to "BRING IT!" Torture walks down the ramp slowly and gets to the ring apron. Reb backs up allowing Torture to slide in!
Zach Davis: Oh here we go! We're going to see the match up right NOW!?
Shannan Lerch: Reb is tired of the assaults, the attacks, and most certainly he's tired of that son of a bitch; Torture!
Zach Davis: Torture is getting in the ring! WITH THE CHAIR!
Torture stands up in the ring, and holds the chair. Reb tells him to "put the chair down and fight like a real man. like a REAL Champion". Torture gets frustrated and turns red with rage. Torture slowly bends down and puts the chair down on the edge of the ring. Torture stands up, and Reb eggs on the crowd to get into it.
Zach Davis: This is going to happen! Reb is going to get his hands on Torture for REAL!
Shannan Lerch: Oh the energy right now is crazy!
Torture smiles, and quickly exits the ring, lands on the ground on his feet, takes the chair with both hands, and swings! The chair connects to the back of Dixie! The crowd gasps! Johnny Reb runs and suicide dives out of the ring, but gets a face full of chair thrown from Torture! Reb crashes down on the mat in pain! The crowd begins to chant vulgar language that is getting censored from network television.
Zach Davis: WHAT THE HELL! GOD DAMN IT!
Shannan Lerch: Reb tried to stop it! Dixie is getting up though! She's out of it! I don't think she knows what's going on!
Torture smiles and get's antsy. Dixie gets to her feet, and Torture grabs her from behind and locks on the hold for the Torts Device! The crowd boo's. Some in the front row try to swing at Torture. They throw water and soda. Torture hits the Tortures Device! Obviously not executed well, but good enough measure to drop her on her face. Torture pops up and smiles like the sadistic asshole he really is. He backs up the ramp as the crowd boo's. Reb crawls over to Dixie Carter and holds her in his arms. Reb's face never leaves the eyes of Torture. WCF officials come down the ramp past Torture and check on Dixie. Torture continues to back himself up the ramp. Reb takes his eyes off Torture to check on Dixie as they try to snap her out of it. WCF Logo appears on the bottom right corner.
Zach Davis: I don't know what to say, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: You can't say anything.. all we can do is hope that Reb gets even with Torture somewhere down the line. Whether it's next week's Monday Night Slam, or Revenge in two weeks.
Zach Davis: (Quietly) We'll see you next week on Monday Night Slam fans. Goodnight.
The scene fades out as Reb begins to get frustrated with rage as Torture stares at the action that's going on ringside. WCF MNS is off the air.
