Sunday Slam Intro
Sitting by M83 hits, and the crowd erupts! Sunday Slam is on the air. We take a look at all the fans holding up their signs and acting crazy before going to the announcers.
Zach Davis: Welcome to Slam! We're preparing for War, and what a night we have tonight.
Shannan Lerch: The big story is the fallout from Till Death Do Us Part's main event. Logan has snapped. To be honest, before the end of that show I thought he'd been run down, a tired shell of his former self. Now... I don't know.
Zach Davis: We saw Seth Lerch take the place as ref in that match, and quite frankly, we don't know his motives. Will we hear from him tonight?
Shannan Lerch: Either way, in our main event, Jack, Logan and Jesper Reisert take on Davey Boone, Adam Knite and "Sweet" Willy Carter. I have to say, the AoV is going to be at an extreme advantage here: Jack and Logan are NOT on the same page, obviously, while the AoV are Tag Team Champions.
Zach Davis: There IS a chance that Logan's pride will stop him from messing the match up. He's on a bit of a losing streak, and he knows he can't afford to lose this one.
Shannan Lerch: For the past few weeks, Outcast has been talking about wanting a Hardcore Title shot. Well, tonight, he gets that chance. The chance to earn the shot, anyway.
Zach Davis: Team NCW, consisting of Outcast and Davey Ortega, are taking on the former Tag Team Champions, Skyler Striker and Thunder. Of course, Striker is also the Hardcore Champion that Outcast is after.
Shannan Lerch: If Team NCW wins, Outcast will get his shot at that belt next week. If not, well, sucks for him.
Zach Davis: There is an interesting thing here, though, involving Danny Vice. We saw him communicate almost... as friends.... with Skyler Striker last week. However, he's involved in a bitter rivalry with Thunder. He's not booked tonight, but will he make an appearance here? And what side would he be on?
Shannan Lerch: We'll see.
Zach Davis: We have a War preview match, of sorts. Several of the superstars that will compete in War will be in one big battle royal that will be won by pinfall or submission. However, in this battle royal, you can be eliminated over the top rope. You don't need to eliminate everyone to win, but it would probably help.
Shannan Lerch: This match has some big names. Creeping Death. JJ Biggs. Conrad Howell. Mike Ragnal. And more. These are all potential War winners, so it'll be interesting to see how they wrestle tonight.
Zach Davis: We have a tag match, with The Xtreme One and The Violent One taking on the Red Devil Mafia. These two teams were unsuccesful in taking the Tag Team Titles at Till Death Do Us Part, but a win here would certainly look good for them.
Shannan Lerch: And lastly, we have another MCE showcase. This is the beginning of a Round Robin tournament, which I'm sure whoever announces the match will tell you more about. Jigsaw, Nemesis, and Nick Woo will go at it this week.
Zach Davis: Let's get to the show!
Alliance of Violence/The Violent One Segment
Davey Boone is seen in the backstage holding the manila envelope. The Violent One is seen walking in the backstage area as well and he and Boone come face to face as you can hear the crowd light up like it is the 4th of July all over again!
The Violent One: You had some pretty harsh stuff to say about us the other night man, what’s the deal?
Davey Boone: I’ve realized that and I apologize for it bro. I haven’t been totally honest with everyone about what is in this envelope. And I’m wanting to give this to you if you will accept it.
Boone offers the envelope over to The Violent One as he just stares at Boone in disbelief. TVO takes the envelope and opens it up and reads it out loud.
The Violent One: This is a contract giving the owner of it the non-controversial right to be the LAST person entered into War VII.
The crowd cheers.
The Violent One: You are giving this to me?
Davey Boone: Adam and I want to be the first two into it and I chose to give this to you. Will you accept it?
The Violent One: I don’t know, this isn’t some kind of a trick is it? Adam isn’t going to jump out and attack me or anything is he?
Davey Boone: No tricks man, will you accept it or not?
The Violent One: Okay, I accept it!
Davey Boone: Sweet!
Just as Boone pulls his hand back, Matthew Clark and Mike Corral come in and attack both TVO and Davey Boone! They knock them down and out as Matthew picks up the envelope and walks away.
Zach Davis: Will Team Xtreme beat the Red Devil Mafia and TVO get his envelope back to be the last person into War VII?
Shannan Lerch: Watch and find out later tonight!
Modern Cutting Edge Division Showcase
Jigsaw vs Nick Woo vs Nemesis
Creeping Death and Jodia make their way to the announcers booth to announce the MCE Division match.
"Pain" by Three Days Grace blasts over the PA system as Jigsaw comes out from the backstage area. He looks out into the crowd before heading down to the ring and sliding in.
Creeping Death: And that is Jigsaw, a mysterious guy I randomly found in Southern California. I didn't speak to him. All I did was ask if he wanted to come over here to Pennsylvania and be apart of a revolution. He nodded and here he is.
"Techno Syndrome (Mortal Kombat Theme)" by KMFDM blasts into the airwaves, as Nick Woo comes down from the back, running full speed. He hits the ring and slides in, popping up and staring at Jigsaw.
Jodia: Nick Woo was discrovered wrestling in the Iowa indies, right?
Creeping Death: Correct, he and Dehart were a tag-team, wrestling in Ames, Des Moines, and surrounding areas of Iowa and into Minnesota.
"Pathetic" by Lamb of God hits, and the lights go out. From the backstage area come the glowing red eyes of Nemesis. He enters the ring and the lights come back on.
Creeping Death: Right down my alley is Nemesis. Dude is a total wackjob.
Jodia: Where did you find him?
Creeping Death: Japan, along side Keiji. Not exactly along side, but they were wrestling the same show. Guy is impressive.
The bell rings and Jigsaw and Nemesis jump Woo, who cowers in the corner recieving a beatdown. Punches and kicks fly at Woo as he tries to cover up. Jigsaw throws Woo at the ropes, picks him up, and Nemesis catches Woo with a front elevated jawbreaker. Nemesis turns to Jigsaw and breaks his face into pieces with a superkick.
Creeping Death: Very nicely done, quick double team move followed by a quick turnaround kick to the head.
Nemesis quickly covers Woo..
kickout. Woo isn't dead yet. Nemesis picks Woo up off the mat and into the air, but Woo floats behind Nemesis and turns him around, kicking Nemesis in the gut, and hits a japanese armdrag sending Nemesis upside down into the ropes and on his head! Nemesis lands hard on the back of his nead while his body bounces off the ropes.
Jodia: Oh no, that didn't look too good.
Jigsaw is back up and clubs Woo from behind, and hits a belly to back suplex. Jigsaw picks Nemesis up and whips him into the turnbuckle. Before he can do anything, Woo is back up and blindsides Jigsaw with an elbow and follows that up with a tiger wall backflip off Nemesis in the corner and Woo lands on Jigsaw with a moonsault! The pin!
Jodia: Woo has him!
Nemesis falls on Woo to break the count.
Creeping Death: ooohhhhh Nemesis just makes it.
Nemesis kicks Woo in the head as Woo is standing to daze him, and then picks him up in a suplex before placing Woo on the top turnbuckle. Nemesis climbs up and stands on the top and goes for a hurricanrana, but Woo holds on, hanging Nemesis upside down.
Creeping Death: I've seen this before...
Jigsaw runs towards Nemesis and Woo, but Nemesis sits up as Jigsaw went for a dropkick to Nemesis' head, sending Jigsaw hard into the middle turnbuckle!
Creeping Death: Well, I guess I haven't seen it before.
Nemesis tries again for the hurricanrana, but Woo flings Nemesis off who then flips back and hits a legdrop on Jigsaw! Just after landing, Nemesis eats a dropkick in the face from Woo, who also lands on Jigsaw in a splash! Woo covers!
Jigsaw kicks out?!
Jodia: Jigsaw took the brunt of two rope moves, and still kicked out.
Nemesis is back up and drags Woo to the middle of the ring. Nemesis picks Woo up in a powerbomb and goes to drop him, but Jigsaw dropkicks Nemesis' shins, and Woo rips Nemesis around in a huricanranna. Jigsaw and Woo square off, with Woo hitting a roundhouse kick to the back of the head, and then a jumping spin Tae Kwon Do kick to the jaw.
Creeping Death: Nick Woo showing off his Tae Kwon Do skills.
Nemesis catches Woo from behind as he picks Woo up into his shoulders in an Electric Chair Drop. Woo punches at Nemesis' head until his arms are caught by Jigsaw, who is on the top rope and holding Woo in a Full Nelson. Jigsaw jumps off the top rope and spins with Woo off Nemesis' shoulders, and Jigsaw puts his knees into Woo's back hitting a Full Nelson Backcracker/Lung Blower off Nemesis' shoulders!
Jodia: THE LAST PUZZLE PIECE!
Quick as a hiccup, Nemesis has Jigsaw thrown into the corner and hooks Jigsaw's arms then grabs behind his knees, carries him out into the middle of the ring and dominates Jigsaw with a package piledriver!
Creeping Death: LAID TO REST!
Nemesis dives over to Nick Woo and covers..
Jodia: Great MCE Divison match up, as Nemesis advances to the Round Robin MCE Title Match!
Nemesis stands up and looks out into the crowd with his glowing red eyes, as they stand and give their approval with a round of applause. Dehart comes down to the ring and helps Nick Woo out as refs help Jigsaw out. Nemesis leads the way back up the ramp.
Zach Davis: Sunday Slam is brought to you by ILG. ILG: We sell your body's chemicals after you die.
Shannan Lerch: And by L'il Sweetheart cupcakes - a subsidiary of ILG.
Zach Davis: This next match-up features--
11 Dreams by Mercenary kicks in over the PA system. The crowd immediately erupts into a loud chorus of boos and derogatory chants. A couple of kids might have even gotten shot or something. Who knows?
Shannan Lerch: The next match will have to wait, Zach. It sounds like Bobby Cairo is making a surprise appearance!
Zach Davis: I'm sure that he's coming out here to brag about his tainted victory over Lawnmower Jones.
Cairo walks out to the top of the entrance ramp along with Lonnie. Cairo has a huge smile on his face like he just had good sex or cheesecake. Lonnie looks like somebody just took a dump in her Cornflakes. It's an interesting contrast.
Zach Davis: We haven't seen Lonnie since Cairo kidnapped her way back at One! What is she doing here?
Shannan Lerch: Well, Cairo gained custody of Lonnie after beating Jones. I guess he's showing off his newly won booty.
Zach Davis: Newly won booty?
Shannan Lerch: It's a pirate thing. You wouldn't understand... n00b.
Cairo and Lonnie are walking down the ringside area while the Slam-A-Tron shows a highlight package of Cairo's win over Jones from the Till Death Do Us Part pay-per-view spectacular.
Shannan Lerch: They sure do make a cute couple, don't you think?
Zach Davis What? You're crazy!
Shannan Lerch: Oh, that's right. I forgot. You still think that girls have cooties.
Cairo and Lonnie make it down to the ring and Cairo decides to be a real big man: He commands Lonnie to hold the ropes for him as he enters the ring! Lonnie is left with no recourse but to grudgingly oblige.
Zach Davis: Lonnie looks very unhappy and I can't blame her. If I had to hang out with Bobby Cairo I'd probably kill myself!
Shannan Lerch: You could do that anyway, Zach.
Cairo decides to take a moment and act like a superstar. He props himself on the turnbuckles and poses for the flashbulbs while Lonnie mopes like a little bitch in the corner of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: You have to give Cairo some credit, Zach. He's clearly an outstanding athlete with a very impressive physique.
Zach Davis: Bah! The man makes me sweat in places that I never knew I had!
Cairo makes a demonstrative action and snatches the microphone away from the ring announcer. Then he pushes the ring announcer down to the floor and laughs because it's funny. The crowd boos the heck out of Cairo.
Bobby Cairo: I didn't come out here to brag about my awesome victory last week at Till Death Do Us Part! This isn't some ticker tape parade, you understand what I'm saying? I'm here to clue everybody on Planet Earth into a dose of reality! Young man! My body and my mind have done some great things here in the WCF! I won the WCF World Championship! I beat Lawnmower Jones last week to gain legal custody of Lonnie! That's admittedly not a long list but those are two really kickass accomplishments! Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth or should I speak slowly and carry a bigger stick?
The boos grow louder and the hostile crowd throws assorted pieces of trash into the ring, including beer bottles, batteries and dirty diapers.
Bobby Cairo: Bow down! Bow down! This is The Man Of The Hour speaking to you! I am here to justify every ounce of pomp and circumstance surrounding this company today! I am the reason for your attendance at this proceeding and I will be the reason why you vomit in the toilet after you leave your seating arrangements!
Cairo jumps onto the turnbuckles and screams like a madman as the crowd continues its onslaught of boos and garbage.
Bobby Cairo: Shut up! Shut up! I will stand for no such nonsense! I will erase you from this dimension if you insist to resist! Conduct yourselves appropriately or get the hell out of here! I will not be interrupted by swine!
The crowd chants ASSHOLE, ASSHOLE, ASSHOLE and Cairo's face turns red with anger. He kicks at the bottom rope and puts up his dukes like he's getting ready to box somebody.
Zach Davis: These fans paid good money to come to the arena tonight and express themselves. They're letting Bobby Cairo know exactly what they think of him.
Shannan Lerch: They're a bunch of rude ingrates. They must be relatives of yours, Zach.
Bobby Cairo: You people are idiots and I wish each and every one of you to die a slow and agonizing death! But let it not be said that Bobby Cairo is incapable of philandering with the common man. I'm The Man Of The Hour and a man of the people! Think about that, slappy! I'm inviting one of you wonderful WCF fans to join me right now in this very ring!
Cairo scans the audience for a viable candidate and perhaps a brand new patsy if he can find the time and energy to mold the young person's mind like so much Jell-O gelatin.
Bobby Cairo: Hey, you in the front row with the mutton chops and the lazy eye! Get your ass in this ring right now!
The young man is helped over the guardrail by security guards and then he climbs into the ring. He's clearly very excited to be the center of attention after so many years of pretending to be a superstar and masturbating to pictures of Jessica Alba.
Bobby Cairo: What the hell is your name, you young ragamuffin?
The kid is suddenly overcome by some serious ass stage fright and he starts spazzing or robotrippin' or some such. Seriously, he's acting like a ham sandwich.
Young Ragamuffin: My name is... My name is...
Bobby Cairo: This ain't no Slim Shady, you little motherfreaker! Tell me your name before I kick your bottom from here to Albuquerque!!
Young Ragamuffin: My name is Fox Molder. I love Jessica Alba! I love you, Jessica! Please marry me!
Bobby Cairo: Shut up! You wouldn't even know what to do with Jessica Alba, you little freak! Now listen to me, young Fox Molder, I will give you good instruction. I want you to think of yourself not as a man, but as a starman! Can you do that?
Fox puts on his thinking cap and makes a face like he's pushing out a peaking turtlehead.
Fox Molder: I am a starman!
Bobby Cairo: That's good, Fox Molder. Now tell me the first thought that comes into your mind, young starman!
Fox thinks hard for a brief, albeit VERY brief moment.
Fox Molder: I'm thinking that Bobby Cairo is a lot like Howard Hughes! Kind of like a bargain basement Howard Hughes!
Bobby Cairo: If I were Howard Hughes I would be dead with a syringe in my arm and a cock up my ass and quite frankly that ain't my scene! Now choke on that, slappy!
Security grabs Fox Molder and tosses his ass back to his seat. Cairo continues his tirade like a real man would and could.
Bobby Cairo: Hey, let's talk about Lawnmower Jones! Lawnmower Jones is a real, little sissy. He should kill himself for acting out of line and then he would be reincarnated as Vince Russo's afro! Anybody doesn't like that? Here's what you do: Bite my butt, everybody! Just get down and bite my butt, ya heard? By the way, Chris Avery got eaten by an alligator last week, so you won't be seeing him around here no more!
Zach Davis: Reminds me of John McCain at that Branch Davidian meeting in Monroe, Louisiana.
Shannan Lerch: What?
Zach Davis: Nothing.
Bobby Cairo: Seth Lerch is a woman! Seth Lerch is a woman! Seth Lerch can go jump off the Golden Gate Bridge with all the other poofters! I am now running the show! I am the centerpiece of the WCF! Promote me! Love me! Bite my butt!
Zach Davis: He's talking about your brother, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: Eh, I'm kinda mad at Seth. He borrowed my tangerine lip gloss last weekend and he still hasn't returned it.
Bobby Cairo: The real reason why I came out here is to have a beautiful moment with Lonnie. Lonnie is my pride and joy. She is the fruit of my labor. I would kill her if I could, but I will do the next best thing. I will systematically destroy her! By the way, Lawnmower Jones committed himself to a mental institution, so don't expect his drunken Scottish ass to come out here and save her! No, it ain't gonna happen! Jones has been thrown onto the scrapheap and so will Lonnie! Once again, I instruct all of you to bite my freakin' butt!
Cairo grabs Lonnie by the throat or handlebar or whatever and he just starts choking her like a total nutjob. Then he just picks her up and plants her with a vicious press fallaway slam kind of like what Scott Hall used to do to all of the jobbers.
Zach Davis: No don't do that! He's beating a defenseless woman!
Shannan Lerch: Holy guacamole! It looks like Cairo is taking a page out of Pacman Jones' playbook!
Cairo stomps away at Lonnie as she struggles for survival on the mat. Cairo picks her up again and this time levels her with his patented Security Breach rolling cutter. The impact busts a hole in Lonnie's fuel tank and the fuel quickly spills out and paints the mat a healthy golden black color. A barrage of trash and boos fills the air in response to the devastating beatdown. One fan hurls a shopping cart into the ring, but it's quickly discarded by a passing flock of seagulls.
Zach Davis: Cairo has gone nuts! He's totally snapped and Lonnie looks like she's hurt bad!
Shannan Lerch: Uh-oh, Zach. Things are about to get even worse. Cairo pulled a matchbox out of his tights and he's got his eyes on Lonnie!
Suddenly a cheer comes up from the audience. Lawnmower Jones is charging down to the ring much like The Ultimate Warrior so many years before him.
Zach Davis: Jones is in the building and he looks like he means business!
Shannan Lerch: And not a moment too soon, Zach. Cairo was about to toast Lonnie like a marshmallow s'more!
Jones hits the ring and unloads on Cairo with a series of left and right hands while the crowd goes totally bonkers. Cairo is staggered and he tries to fight back, but Jones clotheslines him over the top rope. Cairo quickly hightails up the ramp as Jones checks on his fallen Lonnie.
Zach Davis: This has to be a very heartwrenching reunion for Lawnmower Jones. I just hope that Lonnie isn't injured too seriously.
Shannan Lerch: It looks bad, Zach. It's a miracle that Jones intervened when he did, because things were about to get even worse.
The crowd in the arena is dead silent as Jones holds Lonnie in his arms in the middle of the ring. Sadness and anger overcome Jones. He starts bellowing kind of like a dying whale... or The Ultimate Warrior. A group of EMT's rushes down to ringside with a stretcher and a neck stabilizer. Jones is reluctant to let them take Lonnie, but ultimately realizes that it's the best thing for her.
Zach Davis: Bobby Cairo is gonna have hell to pay, Shannan. Kidnapping is one thing, but attempted murder is too much!
Shannan Lerch: For once I actually agree with you, Zach. I don't have a problem with most of Cairo’s antics, but he crossed the line tonight!
The crowd remains silent as the EMT's carefully place Lonnie on the stretcher and wheel her up the ramp. Jones tags along with a worried look on his face and perhaps even a faint hint of tears in his eyes.
The Violent One/The Xtreme One vs The Red Devil Mafia
Zach Davis: After what transpired in the backstage area earlier as Boone gave The Violent One the manila envelope incasing the position of the last entrant into War VII, I’m not sure how this tag match between Team Xtreme and the Red Devil Mafia will pan out. Clark is the official owner of the contract and here we go!
"Headstrong" by Trapt hits as the lights in the arena die one by one before the lights turn blue and red as they whirl around the arena. Dudley Boyz pyro hits as Corral walks out along with Twizted. Corral gets into a Justin Credible pose as Twizted raises his arm in a Sabin pose and Bella just stnads there looking at her two men as pyro goes off. As all three of them walk down to the ring, Twizted hops onto the apron and does the Y2J pose as Corral slides into the ring and Bella stands at ringside. Both men pose on the turnbuckles as Twizted bends down, kisses his fists, and raises them high in the air before jumping down as Corral corkscrews off the ropes and lands perfectly. Both men then shed their entrance gear and wait for their opponents....
Shannan Lerch: I assume if Team Xtreme do not win here tonight that Clark will be the official final entrant into War VII!
Zach Davis: You know what happens when you assume though.
Shannan Lerch: My mascara blotches up on me...
Zach Davis: Not what I was going to say but never mind because here comes Team Xtreme!
The lights fade to black, Alice N Chains: Man In a Box begins to blare, red and white pyro shoots out from the entrance as The Violent One and The Xtreme One Emerge from the smoke. They make their way to the ring very slowly making sure to smack the hands of the fans. They enter the ring and make their way to the corner and TVO cracks his knuckles while TXO climbs up on the opposite turnbuckle and holds up his arms as the crowd is giving them a strong ovation! RDM are outside the ring as their manager Amazing Red is handed the envelope to guard for them during their match. TVO is up on the apron and pointing at the RDM demanding to have the envelope back. Team Xtreme huddle together as TVO decides to start the match off as Mike Corral decides to start it off for RDM!
Zach Davis: Alright folks, here we go! Both men lock up in the center of the ring!
TVO has Corral in a head lock and grabs the arm of Mike and places him in a wrist vice as Mike slaps his shoulder in pain and tries to reverse it but fails. TVO trips Mike down and slides around to a front face lock as Mike is beginning to get frustrated as the crowd is cheering TX on! TVO begins delivering huge forearms into the face of Mike as the referee is counting.
TVO stops and picks up Mike and swings him into the ropes and catches him with a huge power slam! TVO makes the cover!
KICK OUT BY CORRAL!
Shannan Lerch: Holy kickout, Batman!
TVO continues on the attack as he picks up Mike and brings him over to TXO and tags him in as TXO delivers a huge kick to the gut of Mike to the crowds’ liking! TXO slams his arm across the backside of Corral as Mike drops to his knees holding his back as TXO slings his foot up and knocks Corral down with a shining wizard! TXO makes the quick cover!
KICK OUT BY CORRAL!
Zach Davis: Two quick near falls by Team Xtreme, they are working very well together here tonight!
Shannan Lerch: I’m going to head to the back to see Logan, will be back in 2 minutes!
Zach Davis: What could you possibly do in 2 minutes?
Shannan Lerch smiles at Davis who gives a responsive look of disgust.
Zach Davis: I’ve heard rumors but that’s disgusting!
TXO picks up Corral and belly to belly suplexes him across the ring as the crowd is still cheering in approval! However Corral is near his own corner and reaches out and tags in Clark who charges TXO only to be met with a belly to belly suplex as well! TXO waits for Clark to get back to his feet and wraps his arms up behind him and belly to back suplex and holds on, he spins around and nails another belly to back suplex on Clark and holds on again and then delivers a 3rd belly to back suplex before releasing him! TXO then tags in TVO as The Violent One wastes no time and begins to hammer Clark with huge punches to his face into the corner and then stomps him repeatedly down into nothingness! TVO is obviously pissed from the earlier attack on him and Boone! The referee finally steps in and pushes TVO back giving Clark the chance to tag in Mike Corral who waits for TVO to turn around and attempts a huge clothesline that is ducked by TVO who comes off the opposite ropes and SHOULDER BLOCK TAKE DOWN! Matthew Clark rolls out of the ring and grabs the envelope from Amazing Red and begins to head back up the ramp way. TVO tags in TXO who delivers a baseball slide immediately to Amazing Red on the outside before sliding back into the ring. TVO is outside the ring and is following Clark up the ramp as well. Clark is now at the top of the stage as TVO begins to power walk to him!
Zach Davis: Clark is leaving Mike out to dry in the ring and is taking the envelope with him! TVO is in hot pursuit!
Shannan Lerch: Clark needs to turn and run right now!
Mike Corral begins to get the upper hand on TXO as TVO stops and turns back to the ring and begins taking steps back to the ring and sprints. He slides in under the ring as Corral turns around VIOLENT DROP!! The referee is telling TVO to leave the ring as he begins walking back up the ramp way to Clark again as the crowd is going crazy because Clark doesn’t know that Davey Boone is standing right behind him with what looks to be a tire iron! Clark turns around...SMASH! CLARK IS SPLIT OPEN BY BOONE!! CLARK IS OUT COLD ON THE RAMP! Boone drops the tire iron and picks up the envelope and walks back down the ramp to TVO and hands it to him as they just look into each others’ eyes for a moment as TVO turns back to the ring Boone heads back up the ramp way and gives Clark a kick to the face as he walks by. In the ring TXO has Mike Corral in an ankle lock he calls the That’s Xtreme! Corral is pretty much out cold and looks to tap out! TVO climbs back up on the apron and holds up his arms in victory.
Zach Davis: Team Xtreme gets the win!
Shannan Lerch: With help from Davey Boone, I'd say.
Team Xtreme celebrates in the ring, with Boone watching on.
Team NCW Segment
An NCW banner is shown as the camera pans out, showing Davey Ortega and Outcast. Outcast as the people title slung over his shoulder. They seem to he waiting for something
Outcast: Where is he?
Davey Ortega: I don't know...
Outcast: Well this is kind of awkward man, we NEED an interviewer.
Davey Ortega: I told him to be here.
Outcast: I have faith in you. So who is it, anyways?
Davey Ortega: Jason Price.
Outcast kind of looks at Davey with a confused look.
Outcast:....Jason Price? Didn't he team up with Mandy..and lose horribly...to never be seen again?
Davey Ortega: Yeah.
Outcast: The fuck did you find him at?
Davey Ortega: It was in New York. Some dumpster...I'm not to sure where.
Jason is seen running up to them, short of breath, dirty clothes, hasn't bathed in months.
Davey Ortega: Finally.
Outcast: Holy hell...he smells..bad.
Jason Price: I've been homeless, sir.
Outcast: This is who you want to be part of the NCW interview staff.
Davey Ortega: And announce team.
Outcast: Would be kind of funny seeing him sit next to Shannon Lerch.
Davey Ortega: Mmmhmmm...so anytime, Jason.
Jason looks around, not having a microphone.
Jason Price: Ummm...
Outcast: Useless bastard.
Jason holds his fist up to his mouth, pretending to have a microphone.
Jason Price: Jason Price here with the greatest tag team ever, Team NCW. Tell the NCW fans world wide, how does it feel to humiliate the WCF by taking the WCF People's Championship?
Jason holds his fist up to Outcasts face, Outcast covers his mouth and hits his fist away
Outcast: Never do that again. You ripe bastard. I'll tell you how it feels. It feels great. NCW claims one of WCFs titles. Though thats not all, tonight myself and Davey will take care of Thunder and Striker. Two people who think they are hardcore. Now I know, Striker represents the WCFs ''Hardcore'' divison. Though let me ask you, what champion faces an easy opponent like Seth Lerch? Seth has gotten his ass handed to him time and time again. So if Striker thinks his victory at Till Death Do Us Part was something to brag about, he's a bigger idiot than I thought possible. When Team NCW tramples the former WCF Tag Champions, it wi ll prove two things. One, that Outcast deserves to be the Hardcore champion and will take it from him next Slam.
Davey Ortega: And two..Team NCW is ready to take on the Tag Team division.
Jason Price: Well what about that fan last Sunday?
Outcast: I love the NCW fans, and they apparently love me. The fact that NCW fans our taking such a liking to me obliterating WCF is an honor. He is more than welcome to start the Official Unofficial NCW Fan Club.
Davey Ortega: Kind of contradictory.
Outcast: I'm goin to hit you.
Davey Ortega: I'm just saying.
Jason Price: Erm...anyways. Thank you for your time.
Davey Ortega: See he isn't THAT bad.
Outcast: I agree. Get cleaned up, and take your seat at the announce booth for our match. I am sick and tired of those WCF announcers being biased. Now we will have fair and just commentary.
Outcast smiles as him and Davey walk to the right, and Jason walks to the left heading for a much needed shower.
War Preview Match
Creeping Death vs Chris Avery vs JJ Biggs vs Conrad Howell vs Jason Briggs vs Mike Ragnal vs Shawn Errance
The lights slowly fade to black. Bells toll as the screen shows shots of a big wooden cross wrapped in barbed wire. It's a sunny day as the "happy" opening to "The Light That Blinds" by Shadows Fall plays.The crowd goes along with the sounds. "Doo-da-doo dooing" along with it. As the song gets darker and darker, the sunny day turns to night. Black clouds roll in and rain begins falling on the cross. Lightning crashes about. As the lightning crashes, white lights in the arena flash. When the song kicks up, thirty four seconds in, the entire crowd begins headbanging in unison and throwing the horns in the air as the lights come on just a tad, giving light to the dark. Standing on the stage is Creeping Death, wearing a black hoodie with the hood up, arms stretched out in a crucifix fashion. CD stands there for a second or thirty, until the vocals start, taking in the crowd's reaction. Then he slowly makes his way down the ramp, looking out into the audience. As he reaches the ring, he slides in under the bottom rope, and pops to his feet. CD walks over to a turnbuckle, jumps to the middle rope facing in the ring, does the crucifix pose once again, takes the hoodie off, and then takes a seat on the top turnbuckle, awaiting the match to begin.
Zach Davis: Here's Creeping Death, founder of the MCE division and multiple time World Champion and title holder.
Baby Boy comes over the loud speakers and Chris Avery makes his way to the ramp. He takes in all of the cheers and applause and makes his way down the ramp. He slides into the ring and awaits his opponents.
Shannan Lerch: Chris Avery, former People's Champion.
"Voices" by Disturbed hits the sound system and it echoes throughout the arena. The audience, with an exception of a few, are on their feets yelling insults and such in the direction of the entrance ramp. A few moments later, the curtain brushes aside and Jake Hudson walks out onto the top of the stage and he's followed by JJ Biggs, with the WCF Television Title over his shoulder. Biggs is wearing a pair of expensive sunglasses and a self-promotion shirt. The shirt reads, "The Greatest" on the front and on the back it reads, "That Ever Lived." The two men slowly make their way down the ring. Jake climbs up onto the ring apron while Biggs makes his way up the steel steps. Hudson holds down the middle rope as Biggs enters the ring. Biggs takes off his shirt and sunglasses; and he acts as if he's going to throw them into the crowd for souvenirs, instead, he hands them to Hudson. He also hands Hudson his Television Championship.
Zach Davis: This could be the favorite to win the match. JJ Biggs, the Television Champion.
“In Bed With Quinsy” by Albannach starts to play; the crowd gives a mixed reaction, as Conrad Howell walks out to the center of the entrance. Conrad sticks his arms out to the side and tilts his head to look up. After a few seconds of posing, Conrad's Bodyguard joins him and they both make their way to the ring, Conrad stops at the ring side area starts bouncing from one foot to the other in sync with the drums, then slides in the ring as his Bodyguard walks around the outside.
Shannan Lerch: Conrad Howell, who has been feuding with JJ Biggs as of late.
The lights go out and Ride With Me hits the P/A speakers and fireworks spray off the speakers and lights flash back on. Out walks Jason Briggs and Mr. Anderson walking ahead of him. Jason heads to the ring and slides in and lays on the ropes as Mr. Anderson stands in front of him, waiting for his match.
Zach Davis: Here is Jason Briggs, who has yet to find his niche in WCF, but this is certainly his opportunity.
The lights begin blinking several different colors as High Voltage (Footsoldier Remix) by Linkin Park hits. A lightning-like pyro blasts, and Mike Ragnal steps out from the back. He walks to the ring, looking towards the ring and sometimes at the fans. He steps up onto the apron, looks out into the crowd, then enters.
Shannan Lerch: Mike Ragnal, a star on the rise.
Dark music plays as "The Devil" Shawn Errance enters. He's carrying a pitchfork. He enters the ring, and fire comes from the turnbuckles.
Zach Davis: Shawn Errance, newcomer. Frightening.
Shannan Lerch: After all these entrances, we have no time for the match itself. Goodnight everybody!
The bell rings, and the match is on. The ring erupts into chaos, with most men attacking the nearest combatant. Creeping Death goes after Chris Avery. Biggs and Howell begin brawling, as do Briggs and Ragnal. Shawn Errance takes it all in.
Zach Davis: The battle lines have been drawn exactly where we'd expect them to be drawn.
Suddenly, Errance decides to get in the action. Creeping Death and Chris Avery are near turnbuckles, and Errance gets ready to run at them. He goes, going for a Double Clothesline, but CD and Avery move out of the way. CD quickly hits a Dropkick, sending Errance flying out of the ring. He then turns back to Avery, but this time Mike Ragnal comes out of nowhere and actually connects with a Double Clothesline! CD ducks, but Avery is sent flying out, crashing right into Errance!
Shannan Lerch: Two eliminations already!
CD starts brawling with Ragnal. On the other side of the ring, Biggs and Briggs are double teaming Conrad Howell.
Zach Davis: Biggs and Briggs? This won't be fun to call.
They have him in the corner, and they're stomping away at him. Suddenly Biggs sees an opportunity and goes to throw Briggs over the top, but Briggs lands on the apron. Biggs hits him a few times, but he won't fall off. He gets him dazed, however, and then hits a huge Superkick! Briggs flies off the apron and hits his back against the guardrail.
Shannan Lerch: Nice Superkick. Very nice.
This has given Howell the chance to get back up, and he tackles Biggs down, and starts hitting several punches. Biggs eventually rolls away and pulls himself to his feet. Howell runs at him, but Biggs hits a Back Bodydrop, sending him flying over the top!
Zach Davis: We're down to three men now! Creeping Death, JJ Biggs, and Mike Ragnal.
The three men regroup, looking around at each other. No one trusts anybody else. CD runs at both of them, making the first move, and going to Dropkick them both. However, both Biggs and Ragnal catch one of his feet. CD falls to the mat, and Biggs and Ragnal execute a Wishbone Split.
Shannan Lerch: Ow. I don't even have a penis and I hate seeing that
Biggs and Ragnal now turn to brawling amongst themselves. Ragnal throws Biggs to the ropes, and then executes a quick Snap Spinebuster! He goes for a pin.
Zach Davis: Remember, the way to win this match is to get a pin. I guess you could win by default by eliminating everyone, too, but mostly you're supposed to get a pin.
Ragnal then runs to the ropes and goes for a Lionsault! Biggs manages to get his knees up, however, and Ragnal holds his stomach in pain. Biggs is up and he hits Ragnal with the Lights Out!
Shannan Lerch: This could be it!
Before Biggs can capitalize, CD spins him around. CD kicks him in the gut and puts him in the double underhook position, but Biggs scrambles out of it. He then throws CD to the ropes, catches him with a stiff kick to the gut... and hits the Biggs Implant!
Zach Davis: THIS could be it!
Biggs goes for the pin.
Shannan Lerch: JJ Biggs wins it!
CD rolls out of the ring while Biggs raises his arm in the air. Ragnal is up by now, and he goes to trash talking Biggs, not happy about losing without being pinned or eliminated.
Zach Davis: Kind of sucks for Ragnal, but thats the match, thats how it goes.
Shannan Lerch: And Zach, I think we have two early candidates for potential War winners... we shall see.
Biggs and Ragnal do not come to blows. Ragnal rolls out and heads up the ramp, staring at Biggs the whole way.
Alliance of Violence Segment
The cameras cut to the backstage into the AoV locker room as Adam is speaking with Willy and Boone.
Adam Knite: I’m not going to be here next week and neither will Willy. We’ve got some personal issues to attend to man, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to leave you out in the cold like this with it being a couple of weeks before War VII. I still want to enter one and two with you, and we will still put on a heck of a show during the duration we are against each other and then tear through the entire WCF roster! I guess we are going to go ahead and head out man.
Knite and Willy leave the locker room with one of the tag team titles and Boone is sitting in there still and is staring at his tag team title belt. After a deep sigh, he stands up slowly and opens the door. As soon as he gets out, Hank Brown is standing there with a mic.
Hank Brown: Sorry to bother you Mr. Boone, but I couldn’t help over hear that you will be the only member of the AoV here next week. What...
Just then, Seth Lerch steps into the picture and takes the mic from Hank Brown and tells Hank to hit the road.
Seth Lerch: You will be the only member of AoV here next week you say? HUGE opportunity then, next week Davey Boone will be placed in a tag team match against The Red Devil Mafia. Your tag team partner will be THE VIOLENT ONE!! And Boone, this match... careers are on the line! You and TVO, and the Red Devil Mafia!
Seth hands the mic back to Brown as Boone is stunned at the announcement.
Hank Brown: So you will be teaming up with The Violent One next week against the Red Devil Mafia, and the losers are fired from the WCF. What are your thoughts on that?
Davey Boone: ........TVO and I will win like we’ve done before. No worries....
Boone walks away leaving a shocked Hank Brown!
Outcast's Hardcore Title Shot Is On The Line
Team NCW vs Skyler Striker/Thunder
''Remedy'' By Seether hits as Outcast and Davey Ortega emerge from the back. They smile, Outcast giving the finger to the fans as Davey waves to them. They walk to the ring as confident as ever. They enter the ring holding up their hands. They wait for their opponents on the ropes.
Zach Davis: Team NCW here in their first tag match in the WCF, trying to take on the hardcore league.
Shannan Lerch: Go back to NCW! We know they didn’t want you there, but we don’t want you either!
"Money" by Pink Floyd begins to play. As the cash register sound ends and the music begins, Thunder walks towards the ring. He reaches the apron and climbs the turnbuckle, taunting the fans.
Zach Davis: Our former triple-crown champion now has nothing. Really shows you something about his attitude.
Shannan Lerch: Shut up. He has money, that’s all that matters.
A bell rings and the arena lights shut off completely except for a dark blue light that covers the entrance. Another bell replaces it with the same ring. This too fades until a guitar powers out over the P.A., and the bell rings a third time as the introduction to Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls” plays. The haunting sounds continue as more blue lights come and go around the arena. The preceding lyricless verse and chorus play, instead the song leads straight into the first verse with words. A shadowy figure emerges at the entranceway, completely black in the dark blue light. A flash of light reveals Skyler Striker, dressed in an unbuttoned black shirt and his torn maroon pants. He steps out onto the entrance stage and stands completely still for a moment. He begins his walk to the ring as the lone light follows him down, the arena still black. Skyler slides into the ring and stops in the middle, throwing off his shirt and spreads his arms in a crucifix pose as the lights come up with red pyro exploding from the turnbuckles. Skyler walks to the turnbuckle and does another crucifix, looking at Thunder and grinning, shaking his hand, the two having been champions together before.
Zach Davis: And our Hardcore Champion, recently off a victory over Seth Lerch, and ready to go to War. But first he has to regroup with former tag champion partner Thunder and defeat Team NCW – if he doesn’t, Outcast gets a shot at his WCF Hardcore Championship.
Shannan Lerch: Look at him, trying to be all friendly with Thunder. What a loser.
The ring bell chimes and Thunder agrees to start while Striker goes to the outside. Ortega starts the match for Team NCW.
Zach Davis: This is also a hardcore tag match – no rules, no DQs.
Shannan Lerch: As is obvious if you take a look at Outcast and what he has in his hands.
Outcast has a chair in his hands and he throws it to Ortega, who catches it midair and swings it sideways to connect with Thunder’s head. Thunder collapses to the mat and Ortega drops down for the pin already, 1..2..no, Striker breaks it up. Striker moves back to the outside and Ortega glares at him, before tagging in Outcast. Outcast enters the ring and drops a knee to Thunder’s stomach before telling Ortega to grab something. Ortega obliges and grabs Outcast’s title belt from ringside, throwing it to him. Outcast holds the People’s Title high and then drives it into Thunder’s head on the mat. Thunder yells in pain and Outcast slams the belt into him again. Outcast then throws the belt out of the ring and covers Thunder, 1..2..no, Thunder kicks out. Outcast tells the ref it was three and gets to his feet, where he lifts Thunder up and lifts him onto his shoulder. He turns around and hits a running powerslam, and covers Thunder again, 1..2..no, Thunder kicks out again. Outcast is furious and tags in Ortega, and goes to attack Thunder again, but Thunder has tagged Striker and Striker has a chair in hand, running over to take out Outcast and then Ortega with two chair shots.
Zach Davis: Striker coming on strong!
Shannan Lerch: Thunder doesn’t look too well.
Thunder is on the outside of the ring, nursing his wounds, while Striker stacks Ortega on top of Outcast and heads to the top turnbuckle. He throws up two SuFis and lets out an animalistic cry before jumping into the air and nailing a spinning corkscrew leg drop onto the two men.
Zach Davis: A tribute to Danny Vice! The Halo!
Shannan Lerch: What a suck-up.
Striker throws Outcast out of the ring and grabs Ortega, lifting up one leg for the pin, 1..2..no, Ortega kicks out. Striker lifts Ortega to his feet and hits the ropes, coming back with a springboard clothesline. Striker grabs Ortega by the arms and lifts him up, spinning 180˚ and hitting the Last Chance DDT. Striker covers Ortega, 1..2..no, another kickout. Striker grabs the chair from the mat and lifts it high in the air, and a loud CRACK is heard throughout the arena as a chair hits human bone. The chair hitting bone is not Striker hitting Ortega, however – Thunder has been hit by Outcast on the outside. Striker cannot help him, however, as he still has the chair in midair, and the distraction allows Ortega to low-blow Striker and force him to drop the chair as he falls to the mat.
Zach Davis: What a cheap shot!
Shannan Lerch: No DQ, Einstein. Keep your shirt on.
Thunder crawls back to the apron as Ortega tags in Outcast. Outcast runs into the ring and picks up the fallen chair, slamming Striker with it. Outcast goes to pin Striker, 1..2..no, Striker kicks out. Outcast lifts Striker to his feet and still holding the chair, hits the ropes and nails a running chair shot which spins Striker around before he collapses. Outcast pins him again, 1..2..no! Striker kicks out a second time. Outcast has a frustrated look on his face and tells Ortega to grab the title belt again. He does, and Ortega enters the ring. Outcast lifts Striker again and both he and Ortega hit opposite ropes and come back to deliver a conchairto type move with the chair and the belt. Striker collapses straight down to the mat and Outcast pins again as Ortega stands watch over Thunder, 1..2..3NO! Striker kicks out a third time!
Zach Davis: Striker showing that pure resilience that made him the Hardcore Champion.
Shannan Lerch: Or pure stupidity. Outcast and Ortega are demolishing him.
Outcast is absolutely furious and figures that the best way to keep Striker down is to continue attacking. Thunder finally gets to his feet on the apron and Outcast and Ortega lift Striker, who is barely able to stand on two feet now, and deliver another two blows with the chair and title – to each other! Striker ducks the two and Outcast and Ortega nail each other with the weapons, and both collapse to the mat. Striker crawls towards Thunder and slowly rises, getting there, reaching out his hand... and makes a hot tag to the rope. Thunder has jumped off the apron, out of Striker’s reach. Striker gets to his feet, leaning on the turnbuckle, asking Thunder what the hell he is doing.
Zach Davis: What is this? Why won’t Thunder tag in? He and Striker have no problems with each other!
Shannan Lerch: They do now. Maybe Thunder blames Striker for being the cause of his slow downfall – after they lost the Tag Titles, Thunder didn’t go too far.
Zach Davis: Or maybe Thunder wasn't too happy with the apparent friendship between Vice and Striker we saw at Till Death Do Us Part.
Thunder backs off and starts heading up the ramp. Ortega and Outcast quickly see this and Outcast grabs the chair, and as Striker turns, he is nailed with it again. Thunder makes it about halfway up the ramp before looking down to see Outcast pinning Striker, 1..2..3NO! Outcast is on his feet as well as Ortega and the ref as they look towards the stage, where behind Thunder, a figure is running down to ‘Faint’ by Linkin Park.
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh.
Zach Davis: It’s Danny Vice! Vice is here to support Striker and keep Thunder from leaving!
Vice has a chair in hand and sprints to where Thunder is, grabbing him as he goes along and throwing him back into the ring. Ortega grabs Thunder and throws him into the corner, but Vice keeps going and jumps to the apron, slamming Ortega in the head with the chair!
Shannan Lerch: He can’t do that! He has no right to be here!
Zach Davis: Why not? He’s obviously on good terms with Striker now, and Thunder has to stay in this match for Striker to have a chance of winning. Striker isn’t known for liking tag matches.
Vice ascends the turnbuckle, and as Outcast turns from attacking Striker, Vice jumps into the air, chair in hand, and nails the Halo with the chair under his leg! Outcast collapses and Vice exits the ring, chair in hand. Danny walks up the ramp and points to Thunder, mouthing ‘I’m watching you’ before exiting the stage. Thunder grimaces at him before turning to survey the carnage. Thunder is the only one actually on his feet, Striker having been attacked by Outcast with a chair and with blood running down his leg, his scar having been opened again, Ortega and Outcast both out courtesy of Vice’s interruption. Thunder surveys the scene, looks at Striker, and drags Outcast over Striker. The ref counts the pin as Thunder exits the ring, 1..2..3NO! STRIKER KICKS OUT!
Zach Davis: Holy crap!
Shannan Lerch: Bull. The ref is slow.
Thunder cannot believe it and watches with horror as Striker stands slowly, shakes his head at Thunder, and delivers the Final Revelation to Outcast! He does not get to cover him, however, as all of a sudden the fan that attacked Chris Avery last week is in the ring. He grabs Striker and quickly hits an Inverted Stunner...
Zach Davis: That's former NCW owner Steve Carr's move!
Shannan Lerch: What the hell?!
The man quickly rolls out of the ring and heads to the back. Davey Ortega comes from behind and low-blows the Hardcore Champ, who was barely on his feet to begin with. Striker collapses. For effect, Ortega slams him with the chair and then drags Outcast over Striker again.
Zach Davis: Well, Team NCW picks up a win, but I think the odds were all against the Hardcore Champion in this match. Next week, Outcast vs. Striker, Hardcore Championship up for grabs.
Shannan Lerch: Well, everyone’s happy here. Thunder walks out without being beaten up, Outcast and Ortega move further towards their goal of bringing back NCW, and Striker... lives.
Zach Davis: I still can't help but wonder about the identity of that fan... Hey, come to think of it, he didn't even come out of the crowd this time. And, hell, if that was just a fan, we'd have pressed charges, right?
Shannan Lerch: Bingo. This is a man with a purpose. But what is it? Who is it?
Team NCW has gotten out of the ring and they're heading up the ramp. Striker is slowly getting up, realizing what just happened, and looking at them with hatred in his eyes.
Shannan Lerch: Skyler Striker has his plate full. He'll have his sights set on Outcast next week, but I wouldn't want to be Thunder either.
Team NCW disappears behind the curtain as Striker gets to his feet and leaves the ring to applause from the appreciative fans.
Seth Lerch Segment
Master of Puppets hits.
Zach Davis: Uh oh.
Shannan Lerch: Here he comes!
Seth Lerch steps out from the back, to a mixed reaction. He doesn't pay attention to the cheers or the boos as he walks to the ring, looking all business. He rolls in and grabs a mic.
Seth Lerch: Till Death Do Us Part was a big night for me. Firstly, that Skyler Striker cheated his way to screwing me out of my Hardcore Title.
Zach Davis: ...Yeah right...
Seth Lerch: But that isn't the biggest story. The big story, of course, is the World Title. The big story is Jack of Blades and Logan. The big story, as always, is me.
The crowd boos a bit at Seth's overinflated ego.
Seth Lerch: What was I doing at the end of that match? Why did I take the ref's place? The answer is obvious. This is my company, and I have a strong, strong interest in who the Champion is. And, quite frankly, I think the Title scene sucks right now.
This gets a reaction from the crowd, none of them expecting that.
Seth Lerch: Who was in that match? Jack of Blades. A power hungry madman who only holds the belt for his own purposes. Logan, a burnt out has-been. I know these two men well. Logan, obviously, we've run in the Team of Treachery together, we've fought, we've "paid the price of a wrestling lifetime." Jack of Blades, I've had to deal with all of the legal problems he's brought onto this place ever since he arrived. I know these men. And none of them should be holding that belt.
The crowd is on the edge of their seats, waiting for either Jack or Logan to come out. Seth notices this.
Seth Lerch: Don't get your hopes up. No one's coming out. I've taken the liberty of making sure that the guys in the truck are playing reruns of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air from Nick at Night on the backstage monitors, so neither Logan nor Jack will be hearing a word I'm saying right now. But now, at War, I'm the referee. I'm picking between two evils. I honestly don't know who I'm going to side with. I do know this. Traditionally, War has marked the beginning of an era. This year, 2007, it will be no different. Logan, Jack, I know you'll see this segment eventually. I'll see you at War.
Master of Puppets hits again, and Seth drops the mic to the ground before sliding out and heading to the announcer's booth.
Seth Lerch: I think I'll try my hand at some guest commentary for our main event!
Zach Davis: Well this should be interesting.
Shannan Lerch: Well, welcome to the booth!
Jack of Blades/Logan/Jesper Reisert vs The Alliance of Violence
Shannan Lerch: The last match of tonight. The definition of 'beginners luck', the Alliance of Violence versus the establishment of Logan, Jack of Blades and Jesper Reisert. Should be interesting.
Zach Davis: Indeed. The Alliance of Violence are starting to build momentum in both their win/loss count and antics. Whether its through perseverance or talent, well, we'll see relatively soon.
Shannan Lerch: It's the perseverance, methinks. Any talk of WCF title shots is stoked by Davey Boone anyway.
Seth Lerch: These Alliance of Violence guys... THEY have heart. They're hungry. Let's see if Blades and Logan are, too.
Rooster by Alice in Chains hits. The Alliance of Violence steps out from the back, composed of Davey Boone, Adam Knite, and their manager "Sweet" Willy Carter. The three men head to the ring together, the crowd cheering them on the whole time.
Zach Davis: Popular.
Shannan Lerch: So was 'Lost' a long time ago.
The lights dim in the arena, blue pyros shoot down the ramp, and a drum beat rolls into the PA speakers. Metallica's "The Struggle Within" blasts out of the speakers, and Logan steps out from behind the black curtain with a cocky look on his face as he walks down to the ring. On the way, Logan spits at the fans every now and then, telling them to shut up and whatnot. Once he's by the ring Logan climbs the steps, stepping into the ring through the middles ropes and climbing the turnbuckle to throw both arms into the air for effect. Logan hops off the turnbuckle, pacing around the ring until his music cuts.
Zach Davis: Looks a slightly more confident Logan is gracing our presence tonight. Look at him staring at the ramp simply biding his interest until Blades makes himself known to the crowd.
Seth Lerch: Good. This is what I like to see.
The sharp fiddle that opens David Draiman's 'Forsaken' preludes Jack's entrance. Simultaneously, a deep crimson envelops the entire arena. The large video screen begins to play a video featuring dark silhouettes. As the fiddle dies out in transfer for the gruff vocals and electric guitar, the red is dispelled with a sharp explosion of fireworks coming from the ramp. As well as this, the silhouettes in the opening video are also given form showing Jack seemingly in a ritual of preparation and grimacing. As the pyro clears and the video evolves, the camera pulls to the top of the ramp where Jack of Blades is kneeling in ceremony. Soon after, Jack of Blades moves upwards to his feet and poses as if he were being crucified; his arms leant out, his body forced forwards. At the same time, a red rain of sparks fall from behind him where the curtain lays, adding effect. Jesper Reisert slowly makes his way from behind the curtain, intimidated by the majesty of the theatrics that promote Blades' rank. As the 'rain' dies down, two walls of flame burst from the each side of the ramp and Jack sets down it, his face changing from ecstatic grin to professional glare. When at the ring, he slides through the bottom rope and spends a few moments on the canvas as if establishing the surroundings before charismatically getting to his feet by spinning on his heels. At his feet, he launches himself onto the second rope of a turnbuckle, sideways, and reveals to the crowd a red rose from his trenchcoat pocket, raising it up beyond his head with one hand before catching it in his other and crushing it. This cues a steady stream of rose petals to fall from the ceiling around him as he apes the same crucifix gesture. Jesper, meanwhile, makes an effort to hide the can of string cheese, brought to the ring in case hunger strikes, from the official. Logan simply watches on disgusted.
Shannan Lerch: Well, everyone's in the ring. Let's see who is starting up.
The referee signals for the timekeeper to ring the bell and it happens. Logan moves to centre herself only to realise that neither of his tag partners are moving. He gives in and moves to the apron. As he opens the ropes for himself to move through, Blades overtakes him with a smile. This leaves Jesper alone in the ring. Davey and Carter move behind the ropes and it seems that Jesper and Knite will face one another in a rather unsporting struggle.
Zach Davis: You must be kidding.
Jesper goes to punch Knite but it is easily countered into an arm drag. He immediately moves back up only to meet with a dropkick. He clambers back to his feet, wearing a mask of complete irritation. They move around one another before Jesper gets the incorrect motivation to engage in a grapple. Knite easily overpowers him forcing him through the ropes, tagging Blades in the mayhem. Jack of Blades pulls himself into the ring and promotes the fact he wants Adam to rush him. Knite, still not a witness to the full manipulative content of Blades tactics, moves towards him only to be thrown outward with a Half-Nelson Suplex. Blades moves through the second rope only for Adam to butt him in the chest and follow with a suplex onto the top rope. Blades body slumps back to the mat as Knite turns his back and riles the audience.
Shannan Lerch: Bad move on Knite's part.
Blades is up and tackles Knite down and begins laying on the punches. The two men quickly get to their feet, and Knite moves away and tags in Boone.
Zach Davis: Here comes Davey Boone, who we sure have been seeing a lot of lately.
Boone rushes in and begins brawling with Blades. Blades goes for a kick, but Boone catches it. He trips Blades down, still holding the leg, and drops an elbow to the inside of the knee. He then quickly jumps to the top rope and flies off with a Moonsault, connecting perfectly and resulting in a pin!
No! Blades kicks out.
Seth Lerch: I can't help but notice Logan didn't try and help Blades there. I see that Jesper expected him to, but nothing.
Boone picks Blades up and tosses him into his corner. He points to Logan.
Shannan Lerch: Looks like Boone is calling Logan out!
Logan tags himself in. As he enters the ring, Boone runs and starts kicking at him. Boone executes a Snapmare and then hits a stiff kick to his back. Boone then locks in a Sleeper.
Zach Davis: I think we all know the sequence that's coming now.
The fans begin clapping, for some reason beginning to get behind Logan a bit. Logan is to his feet, and he jabs Boone in the gut several times before hitting a big Standing Clothesline, sending him down. He then drops a few elbows before grabbing his legs and starting to put in the Loganshooter!
Seth Lerch: Everyone loves a good Sharpshooter.
Boone manages to fight out of it, kicking Logan away. Boone pulls himself to his feet and tags in Knite.
Shannan Lerch: I don't think it is any coincidence we're not seeing much of Carter and Reisert in this match. They're liabilities.
Knite comes in and Logan goes right on the attack, hitting a few stiff kicks to his legs. Knite soon begins to fight back, hitting Logan with some also stiff chops to the chest. Knite then runs at Logan but Logan catches him and hits a huge Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex!
Zach Davis: Impressive!
Seth Lerch: Most impressive.
Logan then locks in a Sleeper himself on the fallen Knite. Knite works himself up, similar to how Logan did earlier...
Shannan Lerch: Uh oh, Knite doesn't know what's coming-
Logan hits The Connector! Boone enters the ring, but Logan quickly snaps off the Impact Style! He pins Knite, hooking the leg!
Seth Lerch: Color me surprised.
Zach Davis: Logan has done it! He and Blades beat the Tag Team Champs.
Knite and Boone roll out of the ring with the help of Willy Carter. Meanwhile, Blades and Reispert have entered the ring. Blades is staring Logan down.
Shannan Lerch: Two weeks until their final battle...
Seth Lerch: Two weeks until War. I have a decision to make.
Blades meaningfully raises the World Title high in the air right in front of Logan's face as Slam fades out.
