Anastasia Petrova vs Slickie T
Kids by MGMT plays and Slam is on the air, live from Madison, Wisconsin! The fans roar and we go to Zach and Shannan.
Zach Davis: Welcome to Slam! We're getting closer to Helloween, and we already have a big match scheduled: The Team of Torture versus a coalition of wrestlers fighting them.
Shannan Lerch: But tonight, Zach... tonight, the winner of War VIII is being inducted into the ToT. Slickie T himself.
Zach Davis: Yeah, according to Seth Lerch, who shockingly joined the ToT himself last week. I don't know, Shannan, I don't know why Slickie would do it..
Shannan Lerch: Because the ToT is simply the most powerful thing going today, of COURSE you'd want to be aligned with them. Torture said he guaranteed a ToT member winning War.. turns out, he was right!
Zach Davis: In our main event, we've got Slickie up against a member of the non-ToT team for Hellimination, Anastasia Petrova. I honestly don't know what that means, Zach, maybe it is true, maybe Slickie really IS on their side..
Shannan Lerch: We have a big Tag Titles match. The Big Time Jerks managed to defeat the ToT team of Daniels and Mikami last week, and now they're getting their shot at the Superfans. They've been after this shot for a while.
Zach Davis: Logan and Hector Rodriguez team up once more to take on Mikami and Ryan Daniels. Now that the Hellimination match has been announced, this is sure to heat up.. and we'll see how motivated the ToT is tonight.
Shannan Lerch: Tyler Derden and Tyler Straven are being forced to team together up against Truth Addiction. Derden and Straven face each other at Helloween, so I really don't know how they'll work together.
Zach Davis: Not well, I'd wager.
Shannan Lerch: Television Title defense.. in a no disqualification match! D-Day is getting a shot at WCF gold up against Jay Price.
Zach Davis: Speaking of gold, for the United States Title contendership, Doc Henry and Anthrax are facing one another. Henry has been after that US Title for some time now, as has Anthrax.
Shannan Lerch: The weird thing is that if Henry would win, he'd be facing a member of his team for the belt, Logan.. that could get messy.
Zach Davis: And in our opener, we have another contendership match. To see who will face Ace Slaughter at Helloween for the Hardcore Title.. Greenfever versus Death versus Prince Jimmy Dean.
Shannan Lerch: Let's get to our show!
Hardcore Title Contendership Match
Greenfever vs Death vs Prince Jimmy Dean
Shannan Lerch: Our next match is for the #1 contendership for the WCF Hardcore Championship.
"Click click Boom" by Saliva is about to play...
Zach Davis: Well it looks like our Hardcore Champion is about to pay us a visit.
The crowd scrambles to stand up, some with their hands on their ears. Some of the crown run towards the entrance ramp, screaming and yelling. Ace Slaughter slowly walks through a large area of smoke, with his arms extended outward. The crowd becomes somewhat deafening. Ace slowly spins around 360 degrees, with his arms still extended outward. Slaughter stops spinning, then jumps up. As he lands, a loud explosion rattles the arena. Two pillars, near the ramp entrance, spits out fire, which reaches 5 to 6 feet out of the 6 foot pillars. Slaughter continues to walk down the ramp and continues to walk to the announcer`s table. Slaughter grabs a headset.
Shannan Lerch: Well, isn`t this a pleasant surprise.
Zach Davis: Yes it is. I want to be the first person to say... congratulations on winning the Hardcore title at Slam.
Shannan Lerch: Yes. Congradulations. Are you going to be prepared for your title defense at Helloween?
Ace Slaughter: First of all, I would like to say, that all in my nineteen years of wrestling, minus those four and a half years I would like to forget. So, for arguments sake, we'll say fourteen and a half years, you two are the best announcers I have been associated with.
Shannan Lerch: well, thank you. Both Zach and I appreciate that. Now, back to our question.
Ace Slaughter: Yes. Go ahead.
Zach Davis: Are you going to be prepared for your title defense at Helloween?
Ace Slaughter: Yes, I will be. Absolutely I will be!! I don`t care if it`s that, what I call him... "The Slimey One" "The Sticky Icky" "The Minuscule Monstrosity" or what everyone calls him... Greenfever!! The former champ. I repeat the FORMER champion. Or "The Dead Thing" "The carrier of ill will" "The Monster of mayhem"... Death or even "The Sausage Prince" Jimmy Dean. I don`t care who I fac-off against. I will remain the WCF Hardcore Champion by the end of Helloween. I plan on bringing back prestige to this championship.
Shannan Lerch: That`s good to know, Ace. Now, it`s time for the first competitor, in this number one contenders match...
Kyle Steel: From Papua, New Guinea... Weighing in at two hundred and ten pounds. His Royal Highness.... Jimmy Dea-ea-ean!!!
The lights go out and royalesque music begins to play. A single light shines from the projector onto the aisle. The Prince Force is a golden carriage with two white horses comes from behind the curtains and approaches slowly down the aisle.. The multitude, of the crowd, is in awe, with their silence, in the admiration in the magnificence, of his entrance. The Prince Jimmy Dean rides his carriage to the ring. He leaves slowly from the carriage and elegantly walks into the ring and walks into the center, of the ring, as the alone light, of the projector, shines into the ring. The light goes out and The Prince is waiting for his opponants to approach the ring.
The lights drop inside the arena as the song "Run Rabbit Run" by Rob Zombie begins to play over the P.A. system.
Kyle Steel: His opponant is from Pine Bluff, Arkansas weighing in at one hundred and ninety pounds..... GREE-EE-EE-EE-EENFEE-EE-EEVVV-ER-ER!!
As the first verse kicks in, Greenfever emerges from the darkness. His face and hands are dripping in fresh blood. His clothes are covered in bloodstains. Some of them are old,some are brand new. Greenfever slides under the bottom ringrope. He slowly climbs up to the second ringrope, as he drips blood, practically everywhere. Greenfever jumps down, from the second turnbuckle. Greenfever points to The Prince, while grabbing his bloody hair and making a screeching howl towards Jimmy Dean.
Kyle Steel: And finally from Tampa Bay, Florida. Weighing in at 399 pounds....Death!!!
"Fuel" by Metallica rages throughout the arena. The fans get on their feet to boo. Death takes a step out from the backstage area and looks out towards the arena. Absorbing the atmosphere of his continued comeback to wrestling in nearly five years. Death is talking smack to his opponent the entire time. Death reaches the ring, grabs the top rope and pulls himself onto the apron. Staring at his opponents, Death walks to the turnbuckle on the outside, climbs up and throws his arms backwards, taunting to the crowd as red pyro goes off in the background on the stage. Death hops over the top rope and into the ring. The Ref points to the three men to their corners, and then ring's the bell.
Ace Slaughter: All right now... let`s see some action!!
Death grips Jimmy Dean's neck...
Shannan Lerch: Well it looks like Death is going to end it early with the chokeslam on The Prince...
Ace Slaughter: More like the Princess.
Zach Davis: What was that, Ace?
Ace Slaughter: Nothing, I said nothing.
Prince Jimmy Dean tries to clothesline Death and his arm just bounces off the massive chest of Death.
Ace Slaughter: Ou-u-u "The sausage Prince" Jimmy Dean is about to get killed. This is going to fantastic!
Death just looks at his chest, then laughs. Jimmy Dean`s face turns white as he know he is about to get pummled. Death, with left hand grabs the Prince's right hand and delivers a devastating short-arm clothesline!!
Shannan Lerch: A short-arm clothesline from death!!!
Zach Davis: That clothesline almost knocked off Jimmy Dean's head clean off from his shoulders.
Greenfever slithers over to Death and hits Death with a double fist, to the back of his neck and head!! Death just turns around and was not effected at all by the blow to the back of his head.
Ace Slaughter: That was an uneffecting move. Well, it looks like while Greenfever was tangling with Death, The Sausage Princess left the ring and grabs something from his carriage.
Zach Davis: It looks like a golden crowbar.
Greenfever and Death are punching each, blow by blow. They don't see Jimmy Dean creeping up behind them.
Shannan Lerch: With that crowbar, this is gonna be bad....
Ace Slaughter: ....very bad!
Jimmy Dean craks Greenfever with the golden crowbar, on the back of his already bloody head. Death, unaware, he too gets pummled with crowbar, not once but several times.
Ace Slaughter: I guess he wanted to make sure Death stayed down.
Shannan Lerch: That`s the understatement of the year!!
Zach Davis: It looks like Greenfever is trying to leave the ring.
Ace Slaughter: With the beating I gave at the last Slam, I'm surprised he is even walking.
Greenfever climbs through the rops and slips on his own dripping blood and falls off the ring apron.
Ace Slaughter: OH-H-H-H-H SHIT!!!
Greenfever methodically looks under the ring and see the barbedwire bat and tries to climb back up to the ring. Jimmy Dean grabs his crowbar and starts to dig at the forehead of Death. Death begins to scream out in pain, with blood already dripping down his face.
Shannan Lerch: OH MY GOD!! The Prince is showing an extreme side of himself, tonight!
Zach Davis: That too is an understatement!!
Greenfever finally gets back into the ring, with an evil smile on his bloody face. While Jimmy Dean is digging the crowbar into the bloody flesh of Death, Greenfever strikes, with the barbedwire bat across the back, of the skull, of Jimmy Dean!!
Shannan Lerch: OH MY GOD!!!
Ace Slaughter: You can always bet your bottom dollar, that if Greenfever is in a match, you will see lots of lood!!
Shannan Lerch: You are seeing that tonigh!!
Zach Davis: Madison, Wisconsin is gonna be painted red, tonight!!!
Greenfever grabs the hair, on the back of The Prince's head and start to dig the barbedwire bat into the forehead of Jimmy Dean. Blood automatically starts to pour of his head.
Ace Slaughter: Now... all three are covered in blood.
Zach Davis: The entire ring is covered in blood!!
Shannan Lerch: COVERED!!!
Greenfever stops digging the barbedwire bat into The Orince's forehead and The prince collapses to the mat. Death tries to get up and Greenfever just nails hims again with bat.
Ace Slaughter: Holy Cow!! Death is down again!!
Greenfever drops the bat, as Jimmy Dean is trying to stand. Greenfever nails The Prince with a running clothesline, right before he leaves the ring. Greenfever looks under the ring and grabs for a cheesegrater.
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD!!!
Greenfever enters the ring, with the cheesegrater and starts to "grate" the forehead of Jimmy Dean. Blood is now spewing out the head of The Prince!!
Zach Davis: This is about the most disgusting thing I have ever seen.
Shannan Lerch: It`s like driving past a car accident. You can't stop looking at it!!
Death starts to and Greenfever just throws the cheesegrater at Death.
Ace Slaughter: He misses!! Ou-u-u-u!! A big giant boot to the face!!
Death, with his face just dripping with blood, picks up Greenfever and delivers a shoulder breaker. Greenfever is thrashing around in pain. Death is now stomping onto Greenfever!!
Zach Davis: Now, he grabs for the cheese grater and he is now grating the head of Greenfever.
Blood was already dripping from Greenfever, but blood is now pouring from the head of Greenfever. Death slowly leaves the ring and grabs a chair from underneath the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Death has a chair!!!
Death places the chair, in the sitting position, in the center of the ring. Death irish whips Greenfever off the ropes and has Greenfever trip over Death's feet and Greenfever goes head first into the seat of the chair.
The Crowd: HOLY SH*T!! HOLY SH*T!! HOLY SH*T!!
Death goes for the cover....
Greenfever kicks out!
Zach Davis: A kickout by Greenfever
As all three stand in the center of the ring, all three begin to punch each other. Greenfever hits Jimmy Dean with the Electric Powerbomb!!
Ace Slaughter: It looks like Greenfever is on a roll!!
Greenfever grabs Death and throws him over the top rope, to the ground below. Greenfever grabs Jimmy Dean and bodyslams him to the mat.
Shannan Lerch: Oh it looks like he is going for The Move You Fear!!
Greenfever puts his own legs around the neck and throat of Jimmy Dean and begins to wrnch back. The referee checks on The Prince and it looks like...
Zach Davis: Does it look like.... yes? YES!!!
Shannan Lerch: Yes it looks like Greenfever is now the number one contender to Ace Slaughter's Hardcore title!!
Ace Slaughter slams his headset off and onto the desk.
Zach Davis: Ace where are going?!
Shannan Lerch: I think he's going to the ring.
Slaughter enters the ring and looks into Greenfever's face. Greenfever pushes Ace and Slaughter irish whips Greenfever into the ropes and nails him with the Slobberknocker!
Zach Davis: OH MY GOD!! THE SLOBBERKNOCKER!!
Ace Slaughter climbs the ropes to the top turnbuckle and flies off and nails with the Slaughtermatic!!!
Shannan Lerch: THE SLAUGHTERMATIC!!
Ace Slaughter stands over Greenfever and spats down at him. The crowd roars with cheers....
Zach Davis: Well, we have our match for Helloween. Ace Slaughter up against Greenfever for the Hardcore Title.
United States Title Contendership
Doc Henry vs Anthrax
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.
Kyle Steel: This match is scheduled for one fall and the winner will receive a shot at the WCF United States championship next week at Slam! Introducing first from Devil’s Island, New York, weighing in at two hundred and ninety nine pounds tonight, he is a member of the Team of Torture, here is ANNN-THRRAAAXXXXX!!!!!!!!
Zach Davis: Anthrax IS a card carrying member of the Team of Torture. He’d like to win this match tonight and challenge fellow ToT nemesis Logan for the United States title at Slam.
Shannan Lerch: I’m sure that Anthrax would also like to get revenge against Logan for eliminating him at War.
Lights dim, to an orange glow as if at sunrise, as music starts, “Blaze of Glory” by Jon Bon Jovi.
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...
Kyle Steel: His opponent hails from Griffin, Georgia, weighing in at two hundred and fifteen pounds, this man is a true southern gentleman, here is DOOCCCC HEEEEEENNRRRYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!
Zach Davis: Doc has been staking his claim lately as the number one contender to the United States title. He has the chance to make it official tonight.
Shannan Lerch: There is a lot at stake in this match, with the winner earning a US title shot. There’s also no love lost between these two men. Anthrax betrayed Doc when they were teammates challenging the Superfans for the Tag titles back in August, and they’ve been feuding on and off since then.
Kyle Steel: The referee for this match is Slappy Johnson!
Zach Davis: Slappy Johnson is your referee for this United States title number one contender bout.
Shannan Lerch: Good old Slappy.
DING DING DING!!

Anthrax whips Doc into the ropes and connects with a flying shoulder tackle. Anthrax picks Doc up and hits a backbreaker. Anthrax holds Doc over his knee, while grinding his knee into Doc’s spine.

When Anthrax turns around he eats a combination of rights and lefts, punctuated by an overhand right that drops Anthrax.
Zach Davis: Doc Henry has come out swinging with a vengeance! What a beautiful display of striking!
Shannan Lerch: The man has seen his share of bar room brawls through the years. I’m sure that he’s had ample opportunity to fine tune his boxing skills.
Doc scoops Anthrax up and slams him hard on the mat. Henry makes the cover and gets a two count. Henry picks Anthrax up and hits a belly to belly suplex.

Anthrax turns around and eats a dropkick from Doc Henry, knocking him into Colton. Colton goes flying to the hard concrete floor outside the ring.
Zach Davis: Goodness gracious Colton just went flying!

Doc is slowly crawling to the ropes. Anthrax grabs Doc by the boot and drags him back to the middle of the ring. Anthrax taunts Doc and dares him to get up.

Shannan Lerch: Anthrax is a bully, Zach. He revels in picking on people smaller than him.
Anthrax charges and hits a soccer kick to Doc’s head. Doc’s body instantly goes limp. Anthrax covers Henry by placing one hand on his chest, not bothering to hook a leg.

Shot down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
cause Im going down in a blaze of glory
Lord I never drew first
But I drew first blood
Im the devils son
Call me young gun.
Hank Brown is standing backstage in the interview area with Mikami.
Hank Brown: I'm standing here with Mikami, who will finally tell us what his motivations are for joining the Team of Torture. Hopefully there will be no interruptions this time.
Mikami grabs the microphone from Hank and turns to face the camera.
Mikami: As I was trying to say last week, I have changed. And with what I have been through lately, it would happen to anyone else. When you are betrayed by someone who you trusted, not once, but twice, it tends to change one's perspective on life. I have always tried to follow the rules. I have always tried to enforce the laws. But I did not often succeed. And when I did, what did it get me?
He pauses. He then resumes talking, his calm tone turning angry.
Mikami: Absolutely nothing, other than a string of losses, where I should have won. They say that "it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game". But that is not true when your career is based on winning. That is a damnable lie when you have to win matches to keep yourself fed and housed. I could have chosen the easy life, and kept Steve Carr or Rick Mad as a patron. I could have accepted that money. But that would be selling out. That would make me a hypocrite. I want nothing to do with either of them.
He is now seething with anger.
Mikami: Hector Rodriguez' mouthpiece says that everything I have said was just an excuse to do bad things. He is right. But I do not need excuses anymore. All I want to do now, is destroy. So I joined up with the group that would best allow me to do that. If I do what I do in service of Torture, my former enemy...I do not care. As long as I get to hurt someone...someone like you.
Mikami slams the microphone into Hank's skull. Hank falls down, clutching his head. Mikami drops the mic on him and calmly walks away.
Zach Davis: That bastard!
Shannan Lerch: So what else is new?
Zach Davis: Yeah, you're right. Normally this is where we act all shocked at his turn to the dark side, but he's really just a different KIND of bad now.
D-Day vs Jay Price
No Disqualification Match
Zach Davis: And our next match promises to be one not for the weak at heart. Jay Price has gone on record saying that he has no conscience before, and after watching what he did with a steel chair to Hector Rodriguez last week, I'm afraid to see what he can do in a match with no rules.
Shannan Lerch: This is a man with no morals, no respect for others, and above all a man that will do whatever it takes to keep his title belt. Remember, he was the one that put out this challenge and he was the one that made the stipulations for no DQ, so he knows what he has gotten himself into. I can only hope that D-Day knows what he has gotten himself into.
Zach Davis: With that being said, let's get this WCF Television Title match underway.
Dead and Gone by T.I. ft Justin 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.
Shannan Lerch: First up we have the challenger D-Day, looking to add his first championship to his resume. But he has a tough challenge ahead of him before he claim the belt for himself.
The lights in the arena all go out except for two spotlights shining in the ring. The spotlights pan out into the crowd and begin circling the people as they all start to wonder what exactly is going on.
Zach Davis: What the hell is going on?
The spotlights go out and blasts of red and white pyro go off from the ends of the stage. The spotlights come back on, this time focused on the center of the stage as Lloyd Bank's "Lights, Camera, Packin" begins blasting out of the arena's PA system. The big screen is still black but the word Kiladelphia, written in bold white letters, begins fading in and out. One more blast of red and white pyro go off at the ends of the stage as silver sparks rain down on the center. Jay Price steps out from behind the falling sparks with his head down, both spotlights now focused on him. He's dressed in his new ring attire, consisting of red wrestling boots with black laces and black shorts. His Television title belt is wrapped around his waist and both of his hands are resting on the face plate just above where his name is engraved. The big screen is now showing various scenes of Price hitting his finishers and other big moves, along with the scene of him aligning himself with Torture and the rest of the ToT.
Shannan Lerch: New entrance and entrance music for the Television Champion. Could this all be part of the new and improved look that he has been bragging about.
Price stands at the top of the ramp as the crowd begins booing him and chanting random obscenities at him, but he shows no signs of caring what they think. He lifts his head and stares down his opponent with a smirk on his face. He takes the belt off of his waist and places it over his right shoulder as he begins to walk down the ramp slowly, taking his time to make the opponent wait on him. As he makes his way to the ring steps the crowds booing intensifies because he is taking his time, but he doesn't give a shit. He finally makes his way into the ring where he holds the title belt high above his head for everyone to see, closing his eyes as he seems to soak in the boos that are raining down on him. Finally he hands the belt off to the referee and steps back towards his corner, waiting for the match to begin with a confident, yet arrogant, smirk on his face.
Zach Davis: The Television Champion, Jay Price, never one to show a lack of confidence in himself.
Shannan Lerch: Why shouldn't he be confident though? He's the rookie sensation that is taking the WCF by storm and he still has yet to be pinned or forced to submit. In fact, if it wasn't for the fact that he lost to Hector Rodriguez due to a DQ last week, he'd still be undefeated.
Inside of the ring, the referee is standing in the center holding the title belt up in the air for both competitors to see, showing them what this match is for. The ref walks over to the ropes and hands the belt off to another official before signaling for the bell to start the match.
Zach Davis: And here we go folks, don't forget that this match is No DQ so anything can happen.
D-Day and Price move to the center of the ring and lock up, with Price suprisingly matching up evenly with the larger D-Day. Both men struggle to gain an advantage, with Price finally able to get a knee into the stomache of D-Day. He follows that up with a quick kick to the back of the legs before stepping back to the ropes. He lines him up for the Hit and Run and nails it, a sickening kick to the side of the head. Price quickly goes for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: One..Two..No kickout by D-Day. Wow Price was looking for the win right off of the bat and he almost got it.
Price gets up still looking confident as he grabs D-Day by the head and lifts him up. D-Day quickly throws a punch to the face of Price followed up by several quick punches and chops to the body. A big dropkick sends Price reeling back into the ropes and over them onto the hard floor below. D-Day chooses not to follow, instead using the time to recover from the earlier attacks.
Zach Davis: Price on the outside, slowly getting up to his knees with a look of bewilderment on his face. He's getting up to his feet, but wait, where's he going now....is he going for something under the ring?
Price raises the ring apron and is apparently searching for something and D-Day notices it. D-Day bounces off of the ropes behind him and goes for a baseball slide to Prices head. Price looks up at the last second and side steps it as D-Day goes under the bottom rope and lads on his back on the arena floor. Price begins stomping on the arm and body of D-Day, paying specific attention on the left arm. Price then lifts him up by the head and takes him over to the security barrier. The fans are all hurling insults at Price as he lifts D-Day up into a military press and then drops him chest first onto the top of the security barrier. Price then shoves the legs of D-Day over the top, and pushes him into the crowd. He then goes back to the ring apron, lifts it up, and begins removing items from under the ring and throws them inside. A metal folding chair, a trash can and trash can lid, a kendo stick, a stop sign, a crutch and a flourescent light bulb are all thrown into the ring before Price turns back to D-Day and jumps over the barrier into the crowd to continue the attack.
Shannan Lerch: So Price beats up on D-Day, throws him into the crowd, throws all of that trash into the ring, and then goes back after him? What kind of plan does Price have exactly?
Zach Davis: I'm not sure he has a plan, I think he just wants to hurt D-Day as much as possible.
D-Day has finally gotten back to his feet just as Price reaches him and the two begin to trade punches in the crowd with security officials trying to keep the fans from getting involved and attacking Price. D-Day gets a big elbow into Price's face sending him backwards and then charges for a clothesline that takes both men back over the security barrier. D-Day is the first back to his feet and he begins to stomp away at Price's body before lifting him to his feet. D-Day whips Price into the ring post head first followed by a chop block to the leg that sends Price to the ground. D-Day gets back up, momentum now on his side as he once again lifts Price up, preparing to irish whip him once again. Price counters sending D-Day head first into the ring post, and then grabs him and hits a reverse DDT on the arena floor. Price is still visibly shaken from the shot he took earlier from the ring post, but he still has the sense to try for a pin.
Shannan Lerch: He has to be a little out of it, doesn't he realize that you can't get the pin outside of the ring because this is a hardcore match, not a falls count anywhere match.
The referee shouts out that the pin has to happen in the ring, causing Price to yell out in anger which results in the fans laughing at the rookie mistake. Price slowly makes his way to his feet, flipping off the fans and calling them all a bunch of f**king idiots. Price then grabs D-Day and throws him inside of the ring along with all of the items he put there earlier. Price goes for the quick pin.
Zach Davis: One..Two..Thr..No kickout before the three count.
Price again looks pissed off as he gets up. He looks around the ring and spots the kendo stick. He grabs it and turns around to see D-Day starting to slowly stand up again. Price charges, kendo stick in hand, and nails him with a big running boot to the side of the body. D-Day falls back to the ground and Price takes aim at the head with the weapon. He lifts it up and brings it down with sickening impact into the back of the skull, followed up by another shot to the back. Price throws the now busted kendo stick out of the ring and looks around the ring once again. He sees the trash can and lid and picks them both up. He wedges the trash can in the corner between the ropes and holds the lid up in the air with both hands as D-Day begins to stir and raise himself to his knees. He just begins to get up as Price charges him once again. D-Day quickly rolls out of the ring before Price reaches him. He tries to regain his senses but Price doesn't give him much time as he tries for a suicide dive to the outside but D-Day sidesteps him and Price lands headfirst just in front of the announcers table. D-Day wastes no time in grabbing Price and lifting him up to his feet before dragging him over to the announce table. He grabs Price by the back of the head and smashes him face first onto the table several times, before pushing him off and nailing him with a big clothesline that knocks him to the floor.
Shannan Lerch: Once again this match has changed momentum, Price was seemingly on a roll but just like that D-Day has comeback with a fire in his eyes. This match is quickly becoming an instant classic and one has to wonder how and when this could end.
D-Day takes a few seconds, still trying to regain his composure, but springs to action once he sees Price begin to slowly get back to his feet. Price just gets himself up as D-Day charges once again, this time hitting a big flying forearm to the head that leaves Price sprawled out against the announcer's table, it being the only thing holding him upright at this point. D-Day begins unleashing a series of punches and chops to the body before backing up and hitting a big kick to the side of Price's body. Several quick kicks later and Price is on his knees.
Zach Davis: D-Day looking for the D For Destruction
A big kick right between the eyes and Price is down face first on the floor. D-Day grabs him and pushes him up against the ring before lifting up the seemingly lifeless body into the ring. D-Day rolls into the ring and quickly goes for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: One...Two..Thre...NO! Price somehow got his foot on the rope! The ring presence by this rookie is nothing short of amazing.
Zach Davis: And D-Day is now pissed, just look at him.
D-Day gets up and begins stomping away at the head of Price, showing signs of frustration at not being able to end this match after dealing out so much damage. D-Day now looks around the ring and spots the trash can in the corner that Price set up earlier. He grabs Price and lifts him up before attempting to irish whip into that corner. Price counters at the last second, bringing D-Day back into a short arm clothesline. Price lifts D-Day up and throws him into the corner with the trashcan, back first, crushing the can in the process. D-Day screams out in pain and something in the face of Price changes. The smirk has come back as Price seems to be feeding off of the pain he's causing. As D-Day struggles to recover in the corner, finally falling to his knees, Price spots the flourescent lightbulb nearby and picks it up. He waits patiently as D-Day slowly stands up and just as he goes to raise his head, Price smashes the lighting fixture over his head sending fragments of glass all over the ring and busting open the forehead of D-Day. Rather than go for the pin Price stands over D-Day's body with a sickening grin on his face, before reaching down and picking up the metal folding chair.
Shannan Lerch: No no no, don't do it Jay. Just go for the pin already, the man is obviously done, why go for more?
Zach Davis: Price is out here to prove a point. People have been talking non-stop about how he can't win matches by himself anymore and you can see that it has gotten to him. He's out here to show everyone that he can do this by himself.
Shannan Lerch: But at what extent does he need to go to prove his point?
Price looks around at the crowd that is booing his unmercifully, and then looks back down at D-Day. He raises the chair high above his head and goes to swing down....but stops.
Shannan Lerch: Thank god, maybe some sense has come to him.
Zach Davis: I doubt it, look at what he is doing now.
Price has laid the chair down onto the ground and grabbed D-Day by the head, picking him up onto his feet. Price delievers a big kick to the gut and then pulls D-Day into a double arm ddt hold. Price holds him there as he closes his eyes and seems to be savoring the moment. Price then reopens his eyes and with a sickening grin lifts D-Day straight up, holds him there for a few seconds, then brings him down headfirst onto the chair with a devastating brainbuster.
Zach Davis: Ladies and Gentlemen, you have just witnessed the Kiladelphia Driver.
Shannan Lerch: D-Day is out cold, there's no way that he's going to be able to get up after that.
Price stands up once more, the referee almost seems to be pleading with him to just end the match and pin him already. Price isn't listening to him, he's just standing in the center of the ring looking out at the crowd that is booing him. He looks down at the lifeless body of D-Day and almost seems amused. He finally goes down and covers him for the pin.
Zach Davis: One...Two..Thre....What the hell?
Price just lifted up the shoulder of D-Day ending the three count.
Shannan Lerch: You have to be kidding me? What else is there to prove? He's already bloodied and beated D-Day, there's nothing left that he can do.
Price rolls D-Day over onto his stomache and puts him into position for the Lockdown. He slowly locks it in, taking his time in crossing D-Day's arms in front of his own throat. He then leans back, pulling back on D-Day's arms as he applies pressure on the back of his head with his foot, slowly just choking the life out of D-Day.
Zach Davis: This is it, this is the end of Price's plan. He wants to choke the last bits of life out of D-Day until he just passes out in his arms.
Shannan Lerch: This is just sickening.
And D-Day passes out. He can't stay conscious. The bell rings... Jay Price retains his Television Title.
Zach Davis: Great effort by D-Day, as always, but Price just had him beat this week.
Price eventually releases the hold and stands up, arms raised. He takes his Title and rolls out of the ring, heading to the back.
Hector Rodriguez/Seth Lerch Segment
The cameras cut to backstage where Seth Lerch is seen with a couple of members of the production crew. They are gathered around a couple of televisions discussing something. Without warning a steel chair comes flying through the air and smashes into the wall right beside Seth Lerch's face.
Shannan Lerch: What the hell?!
Seth nearly pisses himself and his eyes grow really wide as he looks down the hall from where the chair was thrown. Hector Rodriguez is standing down the hall.
Zach Davis: Oh wow!! Hector nearly took his head off!
Hector tilts his head sideways as if looking at Seth curiously. Suddenly, he leans back and yells out with rage. Seth starts running as Hector barrels down the hallway after him. They turn and run down another hallway and security burst out of one of the doors. Seth runs past them to safety. One of them runs towards him but is nearly cut in half by a vicious spear. Another one comes at Hector and is put down by a clothesline from hell that flips him inside out. Hector is able to put down another one with a Respecto before more security come out. He's brawling with three of them and is looking like he might stand a chance before two more come out from the back and the five men wrestle Hector to the ground, restraining him.
Shannan Lerch: Wow, he took out like half the security in the backstage area.
Seth Lerch smirks and slowly strolls over to where security is holding down Hector.
Seth Lerch: Well, well, well, Hector. Looks like you're pinned dow--
Before Seth can continue talking junk, Hector gets a second win and throws off one of the guards and lunges towards Seth, who takes off running around the corner and out of sight. The camera cuts back to the arena.
Zach Davis: Wow, apparently Hector wasn't too happy with the attack last week and all the chair shots.
Shannan Lerch: I bet not! Run, Seth, run!
Tyler Derden/Tyler Straven vs Truth Addiction
Zach Davis: Next up we have a great tag team match-up featuring two of WCF's top rookies, Tyler Derden and Tyler Straven, teaming up to take on the team of Truth Addiction.
Shannan Lerch: Yes Zach, Tank Reaper and Chris Avery are making their return to the tag team division in hopes of stopping the momentum behind two up and comers in the wrestling business. But the big story will defiantly be if the two Tylers will be able to work together with their big match at Helloween just a few weeks ago.
Zach Davis: We shall see, so let's get this match going.
Sound of maddness hits by shinedown, as the lead singer screams watch your back the explosion of fireworks hit as Derden hits the stage jacked up bobbing his head to the music like the hardy boyz would with a running slide into the ring, hits the top rope for a pose or two then down to business.
Shannan Lerch: Tyler Derden fresh off that brutal Hardcore championship match last week. You have to believe that he is still feeling some of the effects of that horrific experience.
The Lights begin to flicker and the arena is plunged into darkness Wait and Bleed by Slipknot begins to play as the light glow a bright red and that’s when Tyler Straven appears on the stage wearing a pair of black wrestling tights and black boots he glances around the arena before slowly making his way down to the ring.
Zach Davis: And his tag team partner Tyler Straven, another member of last weeks Hardcore championship match. How will these two be able to work together after putting each other through hell last week, not to mention their Helloween match just a few weeks away? You know that has to be on the back of their minds.
And Straven and Derden are indeed staring each other down in the center of the ring.
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 both men begin to high five the fans as they jog their way down to the ring.
Derden and Straven both slip out of the ring and watch Truth Addiction enter the ring.
Avery slides in first and jumps on to the nearest ring corner. He spreads out his arms then folds them together. Tank steps over the top rope and just raises both arms in the air and the crowd eats it up. Avery takes off his sweatshirt, and both men prepare for the match.
Zach Davis: And Truth Addiction, teaming up once again after a brief period where both were pursuing singles opportunities and....
As Zach is speaking about Truth Addiction, Straven and Derden slip into the ring behind them and attack them from behind. Straven goes after Avery, taking him down with a chop block to the left leg. Derden goes after Tank Reaper, hitting a dropkick to the lower back. Both men stand up admiring their handy work until Reaper gets up, sending both men running out of the ring. Once Avery gets back up the referee finally regains control and both teams are sent to their respective corners.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like it's going to be Chris Avery and Tyler Derden starting things off.
Derden and Avery lock it up in the center of the ring and Avery gets in a quick kick to gut followed up by a snap suplex. Things are already looking bad for Derden as Avery quickly follows up the suplex with a leg drop to the chest. Avery goes for the pin.
Zach Davis: One..Tw..No kickout before the referees hand comes down for the two count.
Avery grabs Derden by the head to stand him up but Derden nails him with an elbow to the stomache. He follows that up with an irish whip into the rope and then a drop toe hold. He grabs Avery and stands him up, followed by a beautiful standing dropkick that sends Avery to the corner where he crumples to a sitting position. Derden gets an evil look in his eye as backs up and runs at Avery, looking to hit with the big knee. Avery gets out of the way at the last second causing Derden to hit knee first into the bottom tunbuckle. Avery uses the quick opportunity to get to his corner and tag in the fresh Tank Reaper.
Zach Davis: Chris defiantly needed to get out of the ring quickly and the opportunity arose.
Tank steps over the top rope and heads right over to the corner where Derden is still nursing his right knee. Reaper grabs him by the head and lifts him up to his feet with ease. Derden tries a punch to the body but Tank shows no sign of it affecting him. Derden tries again and again but Tank seems to just laugh it off. Straven then tries to enter the ring, but the referee quickly walks over to tell him to get out. Straven continues jawing at the ref, who's back is turned to the action. Tank goes in for a suplex but Derden uses this opportunity to nail a quick kick to the groin of Reaper, sending the big man down to his knees holding his injured man parts.
Zach Davis: Ohhh Derden showing us all it doesn't matter how big of a man you are, we all have the same weak spot.
Shannan Lerch: Really Zach, even you?
Zach Davis: Of course not, I'm never weak.
Shannan Lerch: Suuuure.
Back in the ring Derden has just come off of the ropes and nails Reaper with a big running knee strike to the head. Derden then quickly gets to his corner to tag in the fresh Tyler Straven. Straven immediately goes to work, stomping at the head of body of Reaper before landing a leg drop to the neck and throat. Straven picks up Reaper by the head, lifting him up just high enough to put his head in position for a DDT.
Zach Davis: Could Straven be going for his Straven's Haven finisher already? Could this be the end of the match.
Straven nails Reaper with the Straven's Haven and goes for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: One..Two..Thr....What the hell is he doing?
Tyler Derden entered the ring and nailed his own partner with a big kick to the back just before the referee was bringing his hand down for the three count. Straven gets up immediately and gets into the face of Tyler Derden.
Zach Davis: It looks like these two are letting their own egos get involved in this match. Derden apparently is pissed because he wanted to get the victory and Straven is rightfully mad that Derden broke up his own teammates pin attempt.
The two come to blows! Straven and Derden both hit rights and lefts to each other, and eventually Straven tackles Derden down and hits him with blows to the face. Derden rolls over so that he's on top and hits punches to Straven's face now. The bell rings.
Shannan Lerch: Pretty sure this match has been thrown out.
Zach Davis: Yup, no contest. Straven and Derden simply couldn't work together.
Straven and Derden roll out of the ring. Straven Clotheslines Derden over the guardrail, and the two men brawl up into the crowd as we go into commercial.
Logan/Hector Rodriguez vs Mikami/Ryan Daniels
Zach Davis: Now, a bit of a preview of Helloween.. Logan and Hector up against Mikami and Daniels.
A drum beat rolls, it rolls, it rolls, it beats and echoes dying to make the fans ears bleed. Say Anything "Chia-Like, I Shall Grow" BLASTS the speakers, the crowd explodes in unison. Logan pops out from behind the black curtains just as ecstatic as the crowd, jumping in place, clinging the United States championship in his hand, happily soaking in the energy from the audience, and then.. he takes off in a focused march down the ramp way. Taking advantage of the ring steps, Logan climbs up them and enters the ring stepping through the middle rope. Logan climbs the rings turnbuckle, his eyes scanning the audience who anticipate what's next.. he throws both arms up in the air raising the title high, on que, the crowd screams and does so as well. Letting his arms slowly fall to his sides, Logan hops off the turnbuckle and his theme music cuts.
Shannan Lerch: The Face of Treachery and the love of my life... Logan.
No One Gets Left Behind by Five Finger Death Punch starts playing and out from the back walks Carlos Estrada. Carlos walks to one of the sides of the ramp and takes off his Fedora and gestures to the crowd in attendance.
A few seconds later, Hector Rodriguez walks out and stands in the center of the ramp. He looks out at the crowd for a few seconds as they stand to their feet cheering for him. He finally raises both arms up in the air. Fireworks blast up on each side of him at the front of the ramp and then more fireworks fire up all the way down the front of the ramp.
Hector walks down the ramp followed by Carlos Estrada. The two men climb the ring steps and get inside the ring. Carlos stands in the middle while Hector walks to each side of the ring, holding up one arm to the crowd.
Zach Davis: Hector Rodriguez! Rookie sensation, ALMOST won the Television Title from Jay Price last week. Almost.
The lights go out and Mikami's double-M logo appears on the JumboTron as "Unholy Confessions" by Avenged Sevenfold plays. The lights turn back on but are now red, revealing Mikami standing at the top of the ramp. He runs down the ramp, dives into the ring and then jumps back up to his feet.
Shannan Lerch: Mikami. He's doing things for himself now... which means being a part of the Team of Torture. A team of people dedicated to hurting people, which is exactly what Mikami wants to do.
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.
Zach Davis: Anndd Ryan Daniels. He and Mikami, former rivals, but I think they'll be working together now as a united front.
Shannan Lerch: And they've both definitely developed mean streaks as of late.
Hector starts for his team, Mikami for his. The bell sounds and Mikami ambushes Hector, attacking him with several kicks before he can defend himself. Mikami throws Hector to the ropes and as Hector comes back Mikami hits one more huge roundhouse kick. With Hector stunned, Mikami backs up, runs at him, and executes a Hurricanrana into pin!
Zach Davis: Hector gets out of it. Won't pin Hector that fast.
Shannan Lerch: As a lucha libre wrestler from Mexico, Hector is quite versed in high flying moves.
Mikami stands back as Hector gets to his feet. He goes for a Diamond Cutter, but Hector shoves him away. Mikami runs back at him and Hector runs and quickly hits a Clothesline From Hell!
Zach Davis: Oof!
Mikami goes down hard. He gets back up and Hector grabs him for a Bear Hug.
Shannan Lerch: Good move from Hector, wearing the former United States Champion down.
But what Hector doesn't see is Mikami reach and tag in Ryan Daniels. Daniels gets into the ring and hits Rodriguez in the back with a few clubbing blows, forcing Rodriguez to release the Bear Hug. Daniels and Mikami both hit Hector with several shots before throwing him to the ropes and then hitting a Double Arm Drag.
Zach Davis: Good teamwork by the Team of Torture..
Shannan Lerch: I think the ToT groups work well together because they have Team right in the name.
Mikami gets back onto the apron as Daniels continues the match. He waits for Hector to get up and then goes for his Angel's Pain Superkick!
Zach Davis: This is it!
But no! Hector ducks it, turns around and hits Daniels with a huge Big Boot! Daniels hits the mat hard. He gets back up and Rodriguez follows up with a kick to the gut... and a Powerbomb! He covers!
Kickout by Ryan Daniels!
Shannan Lerch: Close call.
Zach Davis: Yup and Hector is picking Daniels up... wait, what's that?
The camera zooms into one of the upper levels of the Coliseum to show two people fighting in the crowd.
Shannan Lerch: It's Steve Carr and Rick Mad!
Mad shoves Carr and he falls, rolling down a few steps before stopping himself. He gets up and Mad charges him. Carr steps to the side and Mad stumbles past him. When he turns around, he gets an uppercut from Carr. Steve descends the steps down to the bottom of the balcony and motions for Rick to come and get him. Mad follows him. Steve throws a punch but Mad ducks it and punches him in the gut, then grabs his head and hits it onto the railing.
Zach Davis: My God, one of them could fall over that railing!
Rick Mad gets the same idea and starts trying to push Carr over the rails. Carr shoves back and swings wildly. Mad dodges the punches, gets behind Carr and, despite the height disparity, manages to put him in a full nelson. Security sees this as a good opening and rushes to separate the two.
Shannan Lerch: That was scary.
Zach Davis: It was nuts is what it was. Rick Mad almost killed Steve Carr a few months ago, and it looked like he was trying again.
Shannan Lerch: What would be really nuts would be for my brother not to book these two at Helloween...
Zach Davis: Really? That's what you're thinking about now?
Shannan Lerch: I'm just being practical.
Zach Davis: But back in the ring..
Hector had just been kicking at Daniels, but now grabs his leg... and locks in the Sharpshooter! Daniels yells in pain, but within a few seconds Mikami is in the ring and hits Hector with a big roundhouse kick to the head, causing Hector to slump down and release the Sharpshooter!
Shannan Lerch: Where was Logan?
Zach Davis: He's waiting patiently for a tag. Playing by the rules, I guess, but I'm surprised he didn't get involved there.
Daniels and Mikami pick Hector up and throw him to the ropes. They run at him and hit a Linked Clothesline, sending him down. Mikami gets back on the apron, and Daniels picks Hector up. Daniels lifts him... Reverse Brainbuster!
Shannan Lerch: Cruel Intentions!
Daniels quickly pins Hector, hooking the leg!
NO! Hector kicks out!
Zach Davis: I don't believe it!
Shannan Lerch: Hector Rodriguez has a lot of heart, Zach, he doesn't want to lose!
Daniels picks Hector up and tags Mikami back in as he gets Hector into a Headlock. Mikami gets to the top rope and jumps down with an Axe Handle Smash to Hector's back. Daniels releases the headlock and gets on the apron. Hector clutches his back as Mikami follows up with forearms to it and then hits a Backdrop Suplex.
Zach Davis: Mikami has a target.. not good for Hector.
Hector continues to clutch his back in pain, but Mikami quickly follows up by picking Hector up and executing a Backbreaker. Mikami then puts his knee to Hector's back and pulls his arms back in a submission hold, working on Hector's back.
Shannan Lerch: Hector really needs to get Logan in there, I think.
And, indeed, here comes Logan!... but he's holding a steel chair, and he hits Mikami over the back with it. The ref signals for the bell.
Zach Davis: What is Logan doing!?
Ryan Daniels immediately enters the ring and is also met with a chair shot from Logan. Logan picks Mikami up and grabs his head, DDTing him onto the chair. Logan raises his arms in the air, but Hector still seems confused, and he's getting in Logan's face.
Shannan Lerch: Hm.. trouble in paradise?
Zach Davis: Hector seems angry that Logan caused a disqualification.
Logan is trying to reason with Hector, but Hector won't have it. He storms out of the ring, not listening to Logan. Logan shrugs his shoulders and leaves, following him.
Shannan Lerch: Well, the Team of Torture gets the win by DQ tonight.. eh oh.
The Big Time Jerks vs The Superfans
Zach Davis: Tag Team Titles time!
The arena goes pitch black and all of a sudden the Jumbotron reads BIG TIME JERKS in red. Smoke covers the entranceway and "Red Mist" by Boondox starts playing. Adam, Austin and Alyssa come out wearing black BTJ t-shirts . They walk towards the ring with Adam and Austin haveing ice glares towards the ring as Alyssa is taunting the fans by flipping the crowd the middle finger and yelling out their all hillbillies.
Shannan Lerch: Anndd the Champions..
Hysteria by Muse hits, and the fans begin booing immediately, now fully aware they won't be getting any of the Superfans' classic mimickry tonight. Mark, Marc, and Tiffany all step out onto the stage. They head to the ring, not paying much attention to the fans tonight. They slide in and appear to be all business.
Zach Davis: They've held those Tag Titles for quite a while now, Shannan. Against all comers.
Mark starts the match for his team, Austin Adams for his. As Mark is taking off his Superfans T-shirt, Adams runs at him and starts clubbing him in the back! The bell sounds.
Shannan Lerch: Dirty tactics right off the back from the Big Time Jerks.
Adams throws Mark to the ropes now, but Mark has regained himself and reverses it. Adams comes running back and Mark hits an Arm Drag and proceeds to lock in an Arm Bar.
Zach Davis: Good call by Mark, keep the powerhouse Austin Adams grounded.
But Adams still works his way up and out of Mark's arm bar. He hits Mark several times before once again throwing him to the ropes, this time succesfully. As Mark is coming back Adams hits a Spinebuster!
Shannan Lerch: Shades of Arn Anderson there!
Adams pins Mark!
Before Two, Marc is in, kicking Adams off. Marc quickly picks Adams up and hits a Snap Suplex. He helps Mark up, and as Adams gets to his feet, both Superfans hit a Double Dropkick, sending Adams to the ground!
Zach Davis: Double teaming by the Supefans there. Not altogether legal, but they know how to break the rules and get away with it.
Marc gets back on the apron, and Mark tags him in. Marc climbs onto the top rope, and as Adams gets up once more, Marc flies off with a Missile Dropkick! Adams hits the mat hard one more time and Marc pins him.
No, Adam Young breaks it up now. He picks Marc up, about to double team him, but Mark enters the ring again and Clotheslines Young down, causing him to roll out of the ring. Once again, the Superfans double team Austin Adams, this time grabbing him and executing a Double Suplex.
Shannan Lerch: Superfans definitely in control here.. the Jerks haven't quite found a way to get an advantage yet.
Mark exits the ring and Marc stands above Adams.. hitting a Standing Shooting Star Press! This goes into a pin..
NO! Adams kicks out!
Zach Davis: Quite frankly, I'm surprised! Adams taking a lot of punishment!
Shannan Lerch: He needs to make a tag.
Marc picks Adams up but he's had enough. Adams shoves Marc away. Marc runs back at him, and Adams dives at him, hitting a stiff Lariat. Adams then stumbles up and tags in Young!
Zach Davis: Here comes the fresh man!
The fans cheer for a brief second as Adams made the hot tag and Young entered the ring. Marc runs at him and Young drops him with a Spinning Toe Hold! Young then locks in a Boston Crab!
Shannan Lerch: Now we have Adam Young keeping Marc grounded.
Marc yells in pain for a few moments before struggling to crawl to the ropes. He lunges once.. twice.. and on the third, he grabs the rope. Young is forced to release the hold.
Zach Davis: But the damage may be done..
Marc stands up and he seems to be limping a bit. Young measures him up.. and goes for the Sure Shot!
Shannan Lerch: This is it-
But Marc ducks it and hits the Pele Kick!
Zach Davis: Cheap Pop!
Young falls to the mat and Marc quickly tags in Mark! Mark comes in and quickly grabs Young, twisting him... and hits The Swerve!
Shannan Lerch: This is it!
Mark pins Young.
Zach Davis: The Superfans retain the Tag Team Titles!
The Superfans stand up as Tiffany joins them into the ring.. and Master of Puppets plays.
Shannan Lerch: Zuh?
Seth Lerch steps out, mic in hand.
Seth Lerch: Superfans! Mark, with a C. Mark, with a K. Tiffany, with a Y. I announced to everyone during a backstage meeting some weeks ago that I'd be finding you "monsters of the mid-card" some formidable opponents.
The Superfans nod.
Seth Lerch: And I wasn't lying. Tonight, I'll reveal to you who you'll be defending those Tag Team Titles against at Helloween.
The crowd murmurs, and the Superfans look on, curious.
Seth Lerch: And by "tonight," I mean, later tonight! Sorry guys!
Seth leaves the arena, leaving the Superfans confused and angry. Mark slides out.. and grabs a chair.
Shannan Lerch: What are they going to do-
Young stands up in the ring, and Mark hits him with the chair! The crowd boos loudly. Adams enters the ring and Mark hits him too as Marc gets his own chair. Young has begun to stand up.
Zach Davis: Oh no, they aren't going to-
Mark and Marc both swing their chairs... and hit Adam Young with a Con-Chair-To! Young crumples to the mat as the Superfans throw away the chairs and raise their arms in the air one more time.
Shannan Lerch: The Superfans... I don't know why they're acting like this but I don't like it.
The Superfans and Tiffany both leave the ring and head to the back as medics attend to Adam Young.
Anastasia Petrova vs Slickie T
Zach Davis: Time for our main event. Anastasia Petrova, who has made quite a splash recently, up against Slickie T...
Shannan Lerch: Newest member of the Team of Torture.
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!
Zach Davis: And next up, Slickie T.
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: The fans are murmering amongst themselves, they really don't know what to think of Slickie here. Has he really joined the Team of Torture?
The bell rings. Giving nothing away, Slickie paces and ties up with Petrova. He gets the upper hand, backing her into a corner. The ref calls for a clean break... and Slickie obliges.
Zach Davis: Well, not a ToT-like move, to be honest.
Petrova comes out from the corner and they tie up again. Slickie hits several forearms to her and then hits a crisp Snap Suplex, before floating over and pinning her.
Petrova quickly kicks out and gets back to her feet. Slickie runs at her, and she hits an Arm Drag, taking him down. He gets up and runs at her again, and she hits another Arm Drag. This time, she keeps hold of it, locking Slickie in. He works his way back up, however, and throws her to the ropes. As she's coming back he jumps and executes a Hurricanrana, into another pin!
Shannan Lerch: Slickie T, once again displaying his high flying skills!
Petrova kicks out once more.
Zach Davis: Petrova once again escapes!
Slickie picks Petrova up and grabs her head, positioning her for a Bulldog. But she reverses it into a Backdrop!
Shannan Lerch: Amazing strength by Petrova! I wonder how she did that!
Petrova and Slickie both get up and Petrova takes him down with a Headlock Takedown before locking in a Headlock.
Zach Davis: She seems to be doing her best to keep the high flyer grounded, it seems.
Not knowing what to make of Slickie T and his alignment to the ToT, the crowd doesn't get behind him like they normally would. However, Slickie manages to work his way up regardless, and eventually gets to his feet. Before he's able to power out, however, Petrova takes him back down with a Spinning Leg Scissors and locks in a Boston Crab!
Shannan Lerch: Yup, Petrova is definitely grounding him, for sure. And she has that move locked in.
Slickie yells in pain for several moments... crawls towards the ropes... and is eventually able to reach them. Petrova releases the hold. She then backs up and waits for Slickie to get to his feet.
Zach Davis: I think she may be going for the Rasputin here..
She does, indeed, grab Slickie for a Diamond Cutter, but Slickie shoves her off. She bounces off the ropes and comes back, Slickie runs at her and hits a Flying Head Scissors! He then jumps to the top rope and turns around before executing a 450 Splash!
Shannan Lerch: Guess Petrova's efforts at grounding Slickie didn't really pay off the way she expected!
Petrova kicks out!
Zach Davis: Not enough to keep Petrova down though!
Slickie gets up, but he nearly falls and clutches his leg before shaking it off and continuing.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe Petrova's efforts DID pay off... Slickie's leg was already weakened, but either jumping off the turnbuckle or landing, looks like he hurt it even more.
Slickie picks Petrova up, but she hits him several times in the gut. She gets up and hits him with a Headbutt, and he goes to the ground. She then grabs his leg and starts kicking at it.
Zach Davis: Yup! Petrova pushing her advantage here.
Petrova picks Slickie up.. and grabs him once more, going for the Rasputin!
Shannan Lerch: That could be it-
But Slickie pushes Petrova off.. grabs her arms.. and hits the T-Bone! The crowd pops as he pins her!
Zach Davis: Slickie T defeats Anastasia Petrova!
Shannan Lerch: Good effort by Petrova, but Slickie is as unstoppable as any competitor we've ever seen.. Torture included.
Slickie stands up, getting his arm raised by the referee. But quickly, his music cuts, replaced by Crawl by Kings of Leon.
Zach Davis: And yup. Here we go.
Shannan Lerch: Time for some answers.
Seth Lerch and Torture step out from the back. Seth, normally dressed in a t-shirt and jeans, is now wearing a suit and tie, as is Torture. Torture is also wearing the WCF World Title over his shoulder. The two men walk to the ring, supremely confident.
Zach Davis: I can't WAIT to hear what they have to say, Shannan. It'll be 90% BS, probably, but I still can't wait to hear.
Slickie watches Torture and Lerch enter, not revealing any emotion on his face. Seth and Torture both climb into the ring, and Seth grabs a microphone.
Seth Lerch: Ladies and gentlemen, in THIS ring, you see the future of WCF. Torture, Seth Lerch, and Slickie T, Allen Guiliano.. a united front.
The crowd boos. Heavily. Again, Slickie T simply watches Seth as he speaks.
Seth Lerch: I understand, though, that between last week and now, we've left a lot of questions unanswered... so let me catch you up. First of all, why in the WORLD would I join the Team of Torture? Simple. The same reason Slickie T is going to.
Seth Lerch: I'm finally ready to admit something that for a LONG time, I wouldn't admit to anyone else, let alone myself. Torture... is the best World Champion of our generation.
SUPER booing. Torture smiles and acts nonchalant about it, adjusting the Title over his shoulder.
Seth Lerch: But once I admitted it to myself, I realized.. I've known it all along. And that is why you ALL have accused me of it: "Seth Lerch is protecting Torture," "Torture is only Champion because of Seth," etc. etc... that piece of shit Logan says it all the time, and YOU all say it too. And I finally understand why. Because Torture is SO good, you can't accept it either! I couldn't accept it, you couldn't accept it... but I've realized the truth. Torture is, simply put, the best.
Seth taps the World Title as he says this.
Seth Lerch: And Torture has aligned himself... with the best. The most powerful group in wrestling history. Better than the Elite. Better than the New Dynasty. And MILES better than the Team of Treachery.
Seth Lerch: And when I went to Torture about my idea, I'll be honest. He punched me right in the face. But I was persistent, I apologized for the past and laid out for him the benefits of him allying with me. And finally, he agreed. And here we are!
Hot fans tonight.. More booing.
Seth Lerch: And that brings me to this man.. Slickie T.
Seth Lerch: You see, here tonight.. Torture and I are making Slickie T an offer he can't refuse. Heh, get it, Slickie? An offer you can't refuse? Because you're Italian!
Booing at Seth's bad joke.
Seth Lerch: But really, Torture and I are here to bring you, Slickie, into the ToT. Because at War, you proved.. you, too, are the best. You belong with us.. and men like us, we recognize that quality in one another. The quality of greatness. Slickie T, in the ToT... Slickie, what do you have to say?
Seth hands the mic over to Slickie. Guiliano takes the mic and glances over the crowd, giving looks to all four corners of the ring, hearing the mix reaction of the masses. The fans cheer for the fan-favorite who is now in possession of the mic, but boo at the offer that has just been presented to him by the man himself, Seth Lerch.
Slickie T: So, let me get this straight. Last week, you guys come out here, saying that you have a big announcement that will rock the WCF and it will be a new era here in this federation, and tell the crowd at the end of Slam that the Team of Torture will now be complete with the addition of Slickie T? And now you are out here ASKING me if I will join your stable of some of the best talent ever assembled? Well, to me, it seems like an obvious choice gentlemen, looks like you are offering me the opportunity of a lifetime. I mean, there is only one possible answer that I could possibly have...
Torture and Lerch share a glance of confidence as they grin from ear to ear, confident about the decision of the #1 Contender to Torture’s World Championship. The last piece of their puzzle is about to be put into place and the Team of Torture will inevitable becoming the dominating force in the WCF as Lerch steps forward and extends a hand to Guiliano. Slickie steps forward, giving Lerch a confident smirk of his own, before quickly pulling the mic back to his mouth.
Slickie T: Absolutely NOT!
The crowd gives a loud response in favor of Slickie’s decision as he addresses the two most powerful men in the World Championship Federation that stand before him.
Slickie T: First off, don’t come out here and quote The Godfather in front of me. I’ve heard all the references before and I don’t find any of them to be humorous or amusing. The stereotypes are nothing new to me, Mr. Lerch. Secondly, you announce to all these fans and the entire roster that I will be joining the Team of Torture without even letting me know about it or dropping a hint that it would be my name that would come up in your “announcement” last week? And of course you make it at the end of the show right before it goes off the air so I have no chance to come out here and dispel your rumor. And last but certainly not least, do you think that I, Slickie T, Allen Guiliano, would turn my back on all those loyal fans out there that fill the seats each and every week here in the WCF just so I could join an infected stable like the Team of Torture. I mean, the stable even has Torture’s name in the title and correct me if I’m wrong, but my ultimate goal is to win that World Championship around your waist, not align myself with you so you can hold onto it even longer.
The fans now begin to stir even more as the chant of “Slick-ie T, Slick-ie T, Slick-ie T” now becomes audible inside the ring.
Slickie T: Obviously this offer isn’t out of respect, as the last thing you do before handing me the mic is insult my nationality. Personally, I think you want everyone that is any threat of that World Championship on your side so there is no one left out there that can possibly take it away from you. I mean, look at the guys you have recruited as of late, some of the most talented superstars in this federation, and I would simply be the last feather in your cap. Seth, you and Torture, after my victory at War, are now starting to realize who the most talented individual in this organization is and it isn’t the man who currently holds the most prestigious prize here in the WCF. I was never a true threat before because Seth had the power of the cards to keep me out of your matches, but now, that isn’t the case. I finally had the chance to EARN my way into a World Title shot and now the both of you are doing everything in your power to keep that match from taking place.
It doesn’t matter who you trot out here to try to keep me from leaving this ring without accepting your offer, I will take on every single one of them including the both of you. So, Jay Price, Mikami, Anthrax, all you other cronies can walk out here and strut around like you can stop me from rejecting this offer, but the fact is, there is still one man out there who won’t give in and fuel this juggernaut that you are trying to create. So, now that I have given the fans in the WCF something to cheer about once again, fanabala to the both of you!
Guiliano quickly flips the mic back to Lerch and starts to make his way through the ropes. But before he does..
Seth Lerch: Wait, wait, wait. Wait ONE second, please. I'm not finished.
Guiliano hesitates, not sure whether to bother listening to what Seth has to say or not. He eventually decides to get back into the ring.
Seth Lerch: First of all, sorry about the Godfather thing. You're right, that was lame, and I apologize.
The crowd boos Seth's half hearted apology.
Seth Lerch: Second of all.. Of COURSE it is about respect, Slickie. We respect the hell out of you. ESPECIALLY me. You think I waited this long to let you near the World Title just because I was holding you down? No, Slickie! I wanted to create a WCF moment that will live in infamy. Slickie T getting his first World Title shot at One, WCF's biggest PPV of the year. That's all!
More booing... everyone knows Seth is pretty much lying, Slickie included.
Seth Lerch: And I'll be honest. I really, really thought you'd be joining us tonight, and... I've already made a match.
The crowd buzzes.
Zach Davis: What match could this be?
Seth Lerch: I was hoping you'd already be a part of the ToT, but hopefully after this match, you'll realize that you should be a part of this group. Because at Helloween, The Superfans will defend their WCF Tag Team Titles against...
Shannan Lerch: Oh my God-
Seth Lerch: TORTURE AND SLICKIE T!
The crowd explodes! Slickie, for once, is in shock.
Seth Lerch: That's right. The Tag Team Champions defending against the World Champion and the Number One Contender, one night only. WCF's best of the best, all in one match. What do you have to say?
Seth hands the mic to Slickie. He hesitates to take it, but eventually does.
Slickie T: All I have to say is... I'll see you at the match.
Slickie drops the mic and this time, quickly leaves the ring for good. His music plays as he heads to the back, with Torture and Seth smiling as he goes, seemingly happy with the result of this exchange.
Zach Davis: What a HUGE matchup for Helloween! I don't believe it.
Shannan Lerch: This is going to be big, Zach. BIG.
Zach Davis: If Slickie wins the belts with Torture... is he really going to join the ToT? I doubt it, but I don't really know!
Shannan Lerch: We'll find out then, and we'll see you fans on Slam next week!
Slam fades to black.
