Sunday Slam Intro
Sitting by M83 plays, and Sunday Slam explodes onto the air! The fans roar as we read their signs, "I'd Rather Be At XIII," "MCE = Modern Crappy Excrement," "I Paid To See Biohazard," etc. We go to ringside with the announcers.
Zach Davis: Hello fans, welcome to Sunday Slam! We have the beginnings of a great Television Title tournament tonight.
Shannan Lerch: That's right. We have four tournament matches tonight, and one of them is the main event. Bobby Cairo against Danny Vice.
Zach Davis: I don't believe these two have ever met inside the ring one on one before, so this should be a great match, for sure.
Shannan Lerch: And next week, the winner of that will face the winner of Mike Ragnal vs Johnny Craven.
Zach Davis: Ragnal got a bit of a rub just by wrestling Logan. He didn't win, but he put up a great effort. And don't underestimate Johnny Craven. He may be a rookie, but as green as he is, he's getting better every single match.
Shannan Lerch: On the other side of the brackets, we've got Lawnmower Jones up against Safestyle Jack. How Safestyle Jack got into this tournament I'll never know.
Zach Davis: We also have Biohazard up against Jimpy.
Shannan Lerch: As far as non-tournament matches go, well.... my brother and Logan are feuding again, and...
Zach Davis: Last week, at Blast, Logan had his slave, Madd Dogg, pretend to be a female and talk on the phone to Seth during his entire match with Mike Ragnal. Seth is, rather understandably, pissed.
Shannan Lerch: Well, yeah. And so now we have a handicap match. Logan and Madd Dogg up against Thunder, the Alliance of Violence, and the new Tag Team Champions, Team Xtreme.
Zach Davis: I don't know if Team Xtreme and the AoV will be able to coexist, but we'll see.
Shannan Lerch: And of course, this is Madd Dogg's first match since his return. We'll see how that goes.
Zach Davis: And in our opening match, the People's Title is on the line, with Jay Williams taking on Outcast. Williams hasn't been in the company long, but he's obviously turning heads.
Shannan Lerch: Let's do this!
Seth Lerch Segment
Master of Puppets hits.
Zach Davis: Wait a minute. Here comes Seth Lerch. Great.
Seth steps out from the back, a grin on his face. He walks to the ring, semi cockily.
Shannan Lerch: Well, I guess he's feeling better after what happened last week, at least.
Seth slides into the ring and grabs a mic.
Seth Lerch: I'm here to do three things. One, make an announcement about a huge match at Payback. Two, talk about tonight. Three, talk about that son of a bitch Torture.
The crowd pops like CRAZY, and a Torture chant begins.
Seth Lerch: What a coward. What a goddamn coward. First of all, showing up on Creeping Death's show instead of Slam. He knew he'd be protected there. Second of all... don't be fooled. He doesn't have a WCF contract. He isn't coming back. Torture isn't coming back.
Seth Lerch: Did you guys buy that shit? Seriously. Let me take you back. Its a few months before One, and the match is booked. Reckless Jack vs Logan vs Creeping Death vs Torture. The biggest World Title match WCF has ever seen, the culmination of an entire year of feuds and fighting. But they don't like it, Torture whines backstage. Most of the whining and bitching isn't done to me, mind you, but amongst each other. They come up with this little plan that they're all going to no show. So I get pissed and long story short, WCF ends up closing. For a little. But we come back. Everyone comes back. Except one man. Except Torture.
Seth Lerch: Why didn't he come back? Because HE IS A COWARD. He clung to that little undefeated streak of his. And do you really think he'd have that streak if it wasn't for me?! Torture, do you think half the boys in the back thought you deserved what you got? No, you got where you were because of me. And ladies and gentlemen, Torture realized his time was up. Torture realized it was going to be someone else's turn. Torture knew Jack of Blades would be waiting for his shot. Torture knew he was going to lose. Torture took his ball and went home.
More mixed reaction, mostly booing.
Seth Lerch: And now, this son of a bitch wants to make an appearance. Well I hope it felt good, fans, I hope you enjoyed it. When do you think you'll see him again? A week or two? A month from now? More? Do you really think he cares? He was out there for himself, and himself only, not you people. Torture isn't coming back, Torture's ego is too big to allow it. I don't even need to try and stop him. At the VERY most, he wrestles me, maybe kicks my ass or something, and leaves. Hooray. Hell, maybe that makes him feel good. Maybe it makes him think he's still got it. Maybe he tries and makes a real wrestling return. And I GUARANTEE you, the second he loses a match? He's gone, he takes his ball and goes home, again. People, please. Hate me all you want, I don't care. But don't believe in Torture. Torture isn't a hero, and he never will be.
The crowd takes his words in. He takes a breath and continues.
Seth Lerch: Now onto something that matters, now onto tonight. Let me talk about you, Logan and Madd Dogg.
The crowd.. cheers.
Seth Lerch: You two humiliated me last week. And this week, just like so many evil owners before me, I'm going to make sure you get what is coming to you by booking you in a huge unwinnable handicap match. And you two? Neither of you are Superman. Neither of you can pull this win off.
Seth Lerch: Logan, first, I'm going to deal with you. I was sitting backstage, thinking. Payback is coming up... and Logan, do you remember Payback 04?
The crowd begins to murmur.
Seth Lerch: That Pay Per View featured one of the most brutal matches in WCF history. A Glass Match. That match was between you and me, Logan. And you... you couldn't beat me.
The crowd remembers now, and they boo a bit.
Seth Lerch: We fought to a no contest. We hit each other with glass objects and bloodied each other up beyond recognition. That night, we made Ric Flair, Abdullah the Butcher and the Great Muta themselves say "Those guys are F'd up." We made history, Logan. And I just need to know one thing... three years later...
Seth takes a deep breath, looks straight into the camera...
Seth Lerch: Can you do it again?
Promptly, The Struggle Within by Metallica hits, and the crowd pops loudly. The Face of Treachery, Logan walks out from the back!
Logan: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Seth. First of all, I don't know why you're so mad at me and Dogg. Everyone already knows about you and your little phone sex addiction-
Seth Lerch: Logan, just-
Logan: SHUT UP!
Crowd pops huge.
Logan: Yeah yeah, I'll answer your damn question, boudle. Can the Face of Treachery make history again? Do I really want to step back into one of the most violent matches imaginable, risk my career, risk my LIFE?-
Seth Lerch: You couldn't beat me last time, Logan, and you know you can't beat me now.
Logan: Seth Lerch, you son of a bitch, you've got yourself a match!
The crowd roars!
Shannan Lerch: Oh God.. there it is. I'm worried for these men.
Seth Lerch: But don't leave quite yet, Logan. I have another announcement. One that involves you. One that involves Payback. One that involves the Contendership for the World Title. One that involves Madd Dogg.
Logan's eye perks up.
Seth Lerch: That's right, Logan. You've got me in the Glass Match, sure. But you're doing double duty at Payback. You're going to be wrestling in a contendership match, a contendership match for Jack of Blades' World Title.
Logan doesn't quite trust Seth, doesn't show any emotion, and just keeps listening.
Seth Lerch: And who will you be fighting, you ask? How about nine other men, Logan? How about nine other men in a match that your friend Madd Dogg created?
Zach Davis: OH GOD NO.
Shannan Lerch: He wouldn't. He's not that stupid.
Seth Lerch: Almost everyone is going to be doing double duty at Payback, because the main event will be this. A EUTHANASIA CHAMBER MATCH for World Title contendership!
Zach Davis: This man is absolutely insane.
Logan is shaking his head "no."
Seth Lerch: That's right, Logan! Remember the rules in this God forsaken match? Let me read you the official description.
Seth pulls a paper out of his pocket, and clears his throat before reading.
Seth Lerch: "30 by 30 ring. 25 foot transparant walls. Platforms for high flying moves. The walls hold floor to ceiling chains with various weapons. The walls have barbed wire and spikes imbedded in them. Entrance through the ceiling, no way out. Hooks, ropes, and nooses hang from the ceiling. There is a battering ram. Two men start, the rest are shackled to the walls. Every five minutes, someone is released and the others are electrocuted."
Seth finishes, and smiles at Logan. The crowd is booing, hating the idea of this match.
Seth Lerch: There you have it, fans! See you at Blast!
Seth has what is commonly referred to as a "shit eating grin" on his face as he rolls out of the ring. He begins to head up the ramp, but notices that Logan is still standing there. Seth instead is forced to have security escort him through the fans to the back. Logan eventually heads to the back as well.
Zach Davis: I.... I don't believe it, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: Did you hear that? THE MATCH HAS A BATTERING RAM FOR CHRIST'S SAKE. A wrestling match. With a battering ram.
Zach Davis: Well.... let's just try to get back to the task at hand, calling the matches tonight.
People's Title Match
Jay Williams vs Outcast
Shannan Lerch: First up, the challenger!
The lights dim around as the opening sadistic riff of Born of a Broken Man by Rage Against The Machine plays. Once the song kicks in, the lights start flickering and out walks "Dynamite" Jay Williams with his manager and wife Amy Skye-Williams walking behind him smiling as Jay walks to the ring, jumps on the apron and gets on the top rope raising his fist in the air as the song fades.
Zach Davis: Next up, the People's Champion.
"God of Thunder" hits and Outcast walks out, accompanied by Merc and Rick Mad both. He points to his NCW shirt halfway down the ring. He slides into the ring and takes off his shirt, holding it up for everyone to see before putting it back on.
Shannan Lerch: Outcast is accompanied by Merc, who by some grace of God managed to score an upset victory against Jack of Blades.
Zach Davis: If by "God" you mean "Steve Carr," then yes.
The bell rings. Williams and Outcast approach each other and tie up. Outcast proves his power advantage early on by pushing Williams right off. Williams is right back up, however, and runs at him and hits a Dropkick to his leg. Outcast buckles, Williams is back up and hits a quick Shining Wizard!
Shannan Lerch: Out of NOWHERE!
He goes for the quick pin!
No, Outcast powers his way out of it. Both men are up, and Outcast seems to be taking the match a little more seriously now. Williams runs at him, but Outcast catches him and snaps off a sweet looking Powerslam into pin.
Zach Davis: Two fast nearfalls right there!
Outcast gets to his feet and kicks at Jay Williams repeatedly, who slides to a corner. Outcast hits several kicks, but the ref eventually forces Outcast out of the way for a break. Williams is to his feet, and ducks a huge Clotheslines! Outcast is the one in the corner now and Williams hits several Knife Edge Chops. He then puts him in the Tree of Woe position.
Shannan Lerch: I think I know what he's going for here.
Williams runs to the other side of the ring, then runs at Outcast.... Hesitation Dropkick!
Zach Davis: Picture perfect, beautiful move.
Outcast crumples out of the corner. Williams isn't done yet, and picks him up again... DDT, and he goes right into a Koji Clutch!
Shannan Lerch: How is Outcast going to get out of this?!
Outcast yells in pain, knowing he absolutely cannot stay in this move for any length of time. While the ref isn't looking, Rick Mad grabs Outcast's arm and pulls him to the ropes. Outcast grabs the bottom rope and then Rick yells for the ref to look. He's forced to make Williams break the hold.
Zach Davis: Here we go, Team NCW antics time. Great.
Williams stands up, ready to attempt to finish this match. He gets ready to get Outcast in the Psycho Driver III, getting him up in the Rack position, but Outcast slips behind him and pushes him into the ropes! Jay Williams bounces off them, comes back at Outcast, ducks a Clothesline attempt and then hits a quick Spinebuster!
Shannan Lerch: How'd he hit that on Outcast?!
Williams now climbs to the top rope...
Zach Davis: He's going to go for the Williams Drop!
But no! Again, with the ref not looking, Rick jumps onto the apron and knocks Williams down, so he's crotching the turnbuckle. Outcast is to his feet, shaking off the cobwebs, and begins climbing up with him...
Shannan Lerch: This isn't good for Dynamite.
And Outcast hits the Black Out! He pins, hooking the leg.
Zach Davis: And Outcast gets the win, retaining the People's Title. With help from Rick Mad, of course.
Williams rolls out of the ring, and Merc and Mad roll in. Outcast is handed the People's Title... AND ALL OF A SUDDEN CREEPING DEATH LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND SMASHES HIM WITH A CHAIR!
Shannan Lerch: What in the hell!
CD then turns to Merc and smashes him with the chair as well! Next, he jabs Mad in the gut with it, drops it, and DDTs Rick's head right onto it! Mad and Merc both roll out of the ring. Outcast is already there as well, and they're backpeddling up the ramp.
Zach Davis: Why did Creeping Death just attack Team NCW? Could it have anything to do with Merc and Jack of Blades from XIII?
Shannan Lerch: I always thought Creeping Death loved NCW... but obviously not what Outcast is turning NCW's legacy into, maybe?
Zach Davis: Makes sense to me.
Creeping Death looks at Team NCW as they go up the ramp and exit to the back.
Alliance of Violence Segment
Cameras cut to the backstage area as Boone is seen talking to Johnny Craven as Boone is packing his bags up. Logan walks up to Boone and looks at him in the eyes. They just stare at each other in the eyes as Logan extends his hand to Boone. Boone looks down for a moment and then extends his back as they shake hands and Logan turns to go to the ring. Boone turns back around and continues packing up and talking to Craven. Just then Knite enters into the area with Carter and Kelly Fox at his sides and is ready to wrestle.
Adam Knite: You care to explain your interview that aired Friday night with Zach Davis Boone? What was all that crap about? We’ve lost 2 matches and the TLC match was YOUR fault for ever being involved with that biker idiot!
Craven takes a couple of steps towards Knite as Boone places his hand up to signal him to stop.
Davey Boone: Adam, things between you and I haven’t been right here in the WCF in the past month. It is time to clear the air between us….I feel I should go my own way. So tonight, if you want to lower yourself and team with Team Xtreme then you go for it man. As for me, I’m hitting the road man. I’ve got other things to do then to sit around with you and your girlfriend all day and night. I’ve got World Title on my mind right now and no time to be thinking about girlfriends or any of that crap right now. Plus, I’m going through a lot of changes right now. Career changes, I’ve got to worry about what’s best for me and my career.
Adam Knite: Alright, you need your space and I’ll give it to you. I’m not wrestling tonight either. Matter of fact…we were just leaving ourselves. Later yo!
Zach Davis: There you see it folks, Boone has officially left the AoV and gone his own way here in the WCF!
Shannan Lerch: I wouldn’t say he’s left AoV, he just wants his own personal space for a while.
The cameras go backstage to find Logan walking back, and fourth in the hall way with Madd Dogg standing next to him.
Logan: This is it Dogg, I know you don't want to hurt anybody but that's fine, as long as you do exactly what I say we'll be okay. You understand?
Madd Dogg nods.
Logan: Heh, hey man.. at Blast was pretty good when you distracted Seth like that. Hey, I know it was a little funny, but you did exactly as I said, and it worked. That's why tonight we can do it again. Just think Madd Dogg, we're going up against half the champions of WCF. We're going up against the new thing, hell, in two years I'm sure one of these guys will be a WCF champion. It sucks I can't have the old Dogg back, I know your still in there somewhere, because if I did.. I wouldn't have too worry about this. Maybe one day I can turn your boudle ass back, but till now you just do as I say. You know these guys want to prove something. It's not everyday that people get to wrestle two former world champions. We've, well, I've got to prove to WCF that I'm not some washed up has been like Outcast, that I've still got what it takes to go up against five guys. Hopefully we'll win Dogg, but if we don't.. we'll know that the two of us, we'll I give them the fight of their life. They won't forget us, Dogg. You know man, I haven't had this type of rush since me, and Blades stepped into the ring at One. I'm glad that boudle Seth booked me against five guys, it's a challenge, a challenge I may not win, but a challenge I'm willing to overcome. It's been awhile since I've felt out numbered, threatened. But hey, if Seth actually thanks this is the best that he can throw at us then we're going to prove him wrong.
Logan paces back, and fourth a little more before looking at Madd Dogg.
Logan: Let's go.
Logan pats Madd Dogg on the back as the walk down the hall way, the cameras switch back to the arena.
Logan/Madd Dogg vs Thunder/Team Xtreme/The Alliance of Violence
The lights dim in the arena, blue pryos 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. He looks somewhat angry, and Madd Dogg is not by his side. 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 a cheering crowd. Logan hops off the turnbuckle, pacing around the ring intill his music cuts.
Shannan Lerch: Wasn't Madd Dogg just with him? Where'd he go?
"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: That’s not Madd Dogg, Logan’s partner. That’s one of his opponents in Thunder! Where is Madd Dogg at? Maybe this will be him next?
Shannan Lerch: I’ve got a feeling Logan will be in for a world of pain!
The lights in the arena dim. The Red by Chevelle begins to blare over the speakers in the arena. Red, White, Yellow, and Orange pyro goes off as the entrance ramp is engulfed in smoke. Just as the music gets to the chours The Violent One and The Xtreme One emerge through the smoke. They have the tag team titles wrapped around their waist. They make there way to ring slowly, making sure to slap the hands of all the fans. As they get to the ring, The Violent One climbs through the ropes as The Xtreme One slides under the bottom rop. They stand in the middle of the ring and hold the tag titles high above there heads. They give their titles off to the ringside crew as they stare down Thunder somewhat as everyone is looking around for AoV and Madd Dogg. Finally Madd Dogg walks towards the ring slowly and looks to be in a daze as he walks around to Logan’s side and stands there. Logan is in the ring and turns to Madd Dogg and is yelling at him for something as Thunder comes from behind and attacks Logan! Madd Dogg just stands outside the ring as Thunder is pounding on the back of the head of Logan in the corner as the referee calls for the bell.
Zach Davis: No AoV, but looks like no Madd Dogg either! He’s not even attempting to climb up on the apron for Logan!
Thunder is stomping away on Logan’s leg as the referee tries to pull him back but his pushed away. Thunder continues to soften up the legs of Logan as Madd Dogg just stands on the outside of the ring and watches. Finally the referee pulls Thunder off of Logan as he picks up Logan and drags him over to Team Xtreme and tags in TXO holding his arm as TXO just looks at him refusing to “cheat” to win. Thunder finally shoves him down as TXO lifts up Logan and swings him into the ropes as Logan ducks a clothesline and comes back only to be met with a huge knee left by TXO. Madd Dogg finally climbs up on the ring apron slowly. TXO continues his assault on Logan as he tags in TVO who leaps over the ropes and slams a forearm into the back of the legend. He swings him over into the opposite corner where Madd Dogg steps back and holds his arms up in the air as if he’s showing the ref he’s not getting involved in what’s happening. TVO runs and leaps up for a big splash but Logan dodges out of the way at the last second! TVO falls down to the mat as Logan is rolling towards his corner as the crowd is cheering him on to make the tag. Madd Dogg sticks out his hand and Logan reaches up to tag him in but Madd Dogg pulls back and steps down off the ring again as Logan has a pissed off look on his face. TVO runs over and tags in Thunder as he immediately slams his knee into the back of the neck of Logan and then begins pounding him with right hands. He picks up Logan and gives him a belly to back suplex across the ring! Thunder stands and begins laughing at Logan. Thunder continues to mock Logan and waits for him to get to his feet, Logan staggers over to Thunder who plants him with a T-bone suplex! Thunder makes the pin!
3..KICK OUT BY LOGAN!
Zach Davis: Just too much guts left in Logan, but he’s got to overcome these odds on his own! No friends in the back to come help him but Logan has overcame worse odds than this before!
Shannan Lerch: Thunder and Team Xtreme are working pretty well together too. It doesn’t bold well for the so called “Legend” of the WCF.
Thunder slaps the back of the head of Logan a few times as Logan is trying to get back to his feet. Thunder walks over and tags in TVO again as he nails Logan with a knife edge chop as the crowd goes “WOOOOOO” after the chop. TVO looks around and again swings Logan into the far corner as TVO comes at him again with another big splash and again Logan moves but stays near as TVO bounces off the turnbuckle and Logan goes for a quick roll up!
2.... KICK OUT BY TVO! Logan is now back to his feet and swings TVO into the ropes and comes back with a flying clothesline down as both men are down on the mat! The referee begins the mandatory 10 count as TVO begins to roll over towards his corner where Thunder is waiting to be tagged in and is tagged in as the referee stops the count at 7. Thunder is standing stalking Logan, the referee walks over to check on Logan. Logan is now to his feet and Thunder lifts him up in the Thunder and Lightening! He swings him around to look towards the crowd and when he does, the feet of Logan knocks the referee smooth out! Thunder and Lightening is nailed as Thunder makes the pin! The crowd counts to 3 as Thunder is confused and doesn’t know what’s going on. Madd Dogg grabs the top rope as if he’s fixing to climb into the ring but then shakes his head no and begins walking back up the ramp. The referee rolls out of the ring as Thunder grabs Logan and places him in the COBRA CLUTCH! The crowd is screaming for someone to help Logan! Madd Dogg is still walking back up the ramp as the crowd come to their feet and begin going crazy! DAVEY BOONE IS HEADED TO THE RING IN A SPRINT! He slides into the ring and ducks a right hand by Thunder and starts to fire lefts and rights of his own into Thunder’s face and finally takes him down as in comes Team Xtreme! Boone clothelines TVO down as TXO runs at him he ducks down and delivers a huge back body drop to him! Boone clotheslines Thunder out of the ring and turns around as Team Xtreme grab him and swing him into the ropes as Boone comes back and ducks a double clothesline and then comes back with a HUGE double clothesline of his own! Boone grabs TVO and signals to the crowd as he places his head between his knees and beats on his chest. BOONE’S DAY DEVICE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! TVO rolls out of the ring as Boone runs over and clotheslines TXO out of the ring as well! Boone is on fire! Boone quickly revives Logan as he begins climbing to his feet as Boone gets out of the ring and heads to Logan’s corner and slams his hand down on the turnbuckle and sticks out his opposite hand looking for a tag! The referee is finally revived as well as Thunder. Logan begins crawling over as the referee is back to his feet and TAG IS MADE! BOONE IS OFFICIALLY IN THE MATCH! Thunder is back to his feet as he and Boone begin brawling it out in the middle of the ring. Nobody has ever seen Davey Boone this fired up before! Boone side headlock and bulldogs Thunder down to the mat and makes the quick cover!
2.... KICK OUT BY THUNDER!
Boone places Thunder in a headlock as the crowd is going crazy! This gives Logan some time to recover as he’s finally to his feet in his corner and looks into the ring and sees Boone as his tag team partner. Thunder begins fighting back up to his feet and begins slamming elbows into the ribs of Davey Boone as the hold is finally broken and Thunder fires himself off the ropes and DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE both men are down! The referee begins the 10 count as the crowd is urging Boone to make the tag to Logan who has his hand extended!
Zach Davis: MAKE THE TAG BOONE! MAKE THE TAG TO LOGAN DAMN IT!!
Shannan Lerch: Come on Thunder, get Team Xtreme into the ring!
Team Xtreme is confused at what is going on as Thunder finally climbs over and TXO is tagged into the ring as Boone reaches up and tags in Logan! Logan’s mad as hell now as TXO begins begging off and attempts to run back into his corner but Logan catches him from behind! BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX! TXO climbs back to his feet and runs towards Logan met by a TILT-A-WHIRL BACK BREAKER! Logan makes a cover!
KICK OUT BY TXO! Logan picks up TXO in a headlock and tags in Boone as he hops over the ring and slams a forearm into the side of TXO! Boone has TXO in a headlock as TXO pushes him into the opposite ropes and comes off as TXO delivers a huge shoulder block take down! TXO drags Boone over and tags in TVO as they both begin double teaming Davey Boone as the referee is occupied by Thunder on the outside arguing with him. TVO has Boone up in the Violent Drop as TXO is ready for the That’s Xtreme as they prepare to debut their new tag team move called the HOLY SHIT! Logan enters the ring and kicks TVO in the nuts! Boone falls off the shoulders of TVO and clotheslines TXO in the process! Boone drags TXO to the center of the ring as Logan drags TVO to the center of the ring. Boone and Logan look at each other and high five and then DOUBLE SHARP SHOOTERS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! BOONE IS USING THE SHARPSHOOTER AS LOGAN USES THE LOGANSHOOTER! Team Xtreme is tapping out wildly as Thunder finally enters the ring and nails both Boone and Logan from behind! Logan and Thunder roll out of the ring as the 2 are fighting on the outside. TVO and Boone are still the legal people inside the ring. TXO climbs outside of the ring back into the corner as TVO tags him in as the referee calls for the tag. In the mean time a loud SMACK is heard on the outside as Logan has just slung Thunder into the steal steps! The referee turns his attention to the outside as he’s trying to regain control of the match. TVO and TXO continue their double team on Boone in the ring as TVO hoists Boone up on his shoulders and TXO waits over on the other side to clamp in the That’s Xtreme! They PULL OFF THE HOLY SHIT! TXO has Boone in the That’s Xtreme as TVO holds up his arms! The referee still doesn’t see them inside the ring as Boone is yelling for mercy! He’s tapping out! Boone is tapping out! But HERE COMES ADAM KNITE INTO THE RING! Knite feeds fists into the face of TVO and then throws him to the outside! TXO lets go of the hold and runs at Knite...Knite picks him up KNITES OF THE ROUND! TXO is down in the middle of the ring as Boone stands up and walks over to Knite and extends his hand in friendship. Knite looks at him and turns to walk away, Boone gets angry and grabs his shoulder as Knite twists around and KNITES OF THE ROUND TO BOONE! Boone is down and out! Knite grabs TXO and rolls his arm over the top of Boone and exits the ring and begins heading towards the back not looking back! The referee turns around and makes the count!
Zach Davis: This has to be it!! Adam Knite just turned on Boone!
Shannan Lerch: Logan just saved his partner!
Logan is in the ring, and he just kicked TXO off of Boone and shoved him out of the ring.
Zach Davis: I can’t believe what I just saw! Knite rescued his partner Davey Boone and then planted him to the mat costing him the match! I can’t believe this Shannan! And now Logan and Boone are functioning as a team!
Shannan Lerch: You had better believe it Zach, Logan should have been CRUCIFIED in this match until Boone showed up!
Thunder has rollen back into the ring, and is on his feet, Logan is behind him... Logan motions for Thunder to come to him, Thunder backs up, LOGAN LOCKS IN THE SLEEPER....
Zach Davis: THERE IT IS! THE CONNECTOR!
Logan pins Thunder!
Shannan Lerch: LOGAN AND DAVEY BOONE WIN THIS MATCH!
The bell rings, but Team Xtreme is quickly back in the ring and double teaming Boone. Logan quickly goes to help out Boone as Thunder closely follows him up as the numbers game has caught up to Logan and Boone. All three men are soon giving Logan and Boone in a 3 on 2 beat down! As they continue to assault the 2 men, “Texas Red” Johnny Craven makes his way down to the ring with a chair in hand! The ring clears as Team Xtreme grab their tag titles and hold them up high in the air as Thunder grabs the Hardcore Title and makes his way to the backstage area. Craven is helping his new tag team partner Davey Boone up to his feet as he shakes loose the cob webs as he also helps up Logan. Logan and Boone look at each other and shake hands and embrace! The crowd erupts in a roar as all 3 men look to head to the back. But not before Seth Lerch’s music hits.
Zach Davis: Oh God, not again.
Seth Lerch steps out from the back, pissed.
Seth Lerch: What the hell is this!?
Logan and Boone look on from the ring.
Seth Lerch: Firstly, Logan, aw... didn't Madd Dogg want to wrestle? So sorry, I didn't realize! Pinky promise! But Boone, what do you think you're doing?!
Logan looks at Boone, Boone looks at Logan.
Seth Lerch: Look, I know you hate Team Xtreme and all of that, really. But befriending Logan? Boone, don't you remember? We're tight, you and I. I've scratched your book, and you've scratched mine. Do you really want to ally yourself with one of my sworn enemies?
The two men in the ring again glance at each other.
Seth Lerch: And quite frankly, Logan, I know what you're like. You'd brainwash Boone like you brainwashed every member of the Team of Treachery. Boone, I'm doing this for your own good, I'm saving you. Next week, LOGAN VS DAVEY BOONE!
The crowd pops, because no matter what, that has to be an entertaining match.
Seth Lerch: Davey Boone, after what Adam Knite just did to you, you've got to remember who your friends are. I'm your friend, Boone. Let's keep it that way.
Master of Puppets hits again, and Seth heads to the back. Logan and Boone simply stare at each other.
Television Title Tournament Match
Biohazard vs Jimpy
"Breakdown" by Biohazard plays and Biohazard comes out and walks to the ring as yellow and purple lights flash.
Zach Davis: Biohazard is striking out on his own tonight after teaming with Bobby Cairo for the last couple of weeks. Could last week's loss at Blast to Lawnmower Jones and his mystery partner signal the end of the Serpent Saints?
Shannan Lerch: Almost certainly, Zach. That's not the type of defeat that can be easily overcome. In fact, I'm told that Biohazard and Cairo had a huge fight in the lockerroom after last week's loss. Yes indeed, I don't think that we'll be seeing anymore of the Serpent Saints.
"It's All Over" by Three Days Grace plays. The lights are out. Once the main guitar solo hits, a big bang of pyrotechnics go off and Jimpy is standing at the top of the ramp. Then there is a medley of lights flashing on and off at different points of the arena. Jimpy gets into the ring and goes to the turnbuckle. Jimpy does a backflip off the top rope and lands dead center in the ring and at the moment he lands, 4 fireworks burst out of the 4 turnbuckles.
Zach Davis: Jimpy is certainly an impressive physical specimen. If he can maintain his focus and keep himself composed, I really think that Jimpy can go places here in WCF.
Shannan Lerch: It's funny you should say that, Zach, because Jimpy accused me of burning down his treehouse when he was 7 years old.
Zach Davis: What? Are you serious?
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, it happened just before the show tonight. He was really angry. He kept going on and on about how he didn't have any friends when he was young because I burned down his treehouse. That's not even the worst part. Apparently, his favorite teddy bear Ernest perished in the flames. So then Jimpy starts calling me a murderer! I was so scared that I ran into the ladies room and hid behind the douche dispenser.
The timekeeper rings the bell. Jimpy and Biohazard start the match with a brief staredown. Jimpy challenges Biohazard to a test of strength, but Biohazard refuses. The crowd boos and shouts obscenities toward the masked Mexican superstar. Jimpy charges Biohazard, but Biohazard sidesteps him. Jimpy crashes into the turnbuckles like a cokehead running into a brick wall. Biohazard goes to work on Jimpy's ribcage with a combination of martial arts kicks. The big man Jimpy absorbs the blows and grabs Biohazard by his throat. Jimpy lifts Biohazard into the air and slams him to the mat with a two-handed chokeslam. Jimpy looks pissed. He signals for the fans to get up and make some noise, then he stands poised waiting for Biohazard. Biohazard gets up, turns around and walks right into a Yakuza kick from Jimpy. Jimpy makes the cover.
Zach Davis: Somebody told me an interesting tidbit about Jimpy.
Shannan Lerch: Really? Do tell, Mr. Davis.
Zach Davis: From what I can gather, Jimpy is the reigning three-time champion of the National Blueberry Pie Eating Contest in Moline, Mississippi. He flies down there every year from his hometown of Pittsburgh. I guess he has family down there or something.
Shannan Lerch: That is interesting, Zach. I'm a huge fan of pie myself, but not exactly that kind of pie.
Zach Davis: Hmm...
Jimpy whips Biohazard into the ropes and plants him with a tilt-a-whirl slam. Jimpy signals that he's going up top. Jimpy climbs to the top rope and goes for a Frog splash, but Biohazard rolls out of the way. Biohazard goes on the offensive with an ultrastiff Shining Wizard. Biohazard climbs to the outside and positions himself on the apron. Biohazard launches himself on the ropes and hits a slingshot legdrop on Jimpy. Biohazard flashes some gang signs toward the audience, which draws jeers from the fans. Biohazard goes back to work with a pair of corkscrew elbow drops to Jimpy's abdomen. Biohazard hits a standing SSP and hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: We should point out that the winner of this match will advance in the Television Title tournament.
Shannan Lerch: Oh, right. I forgot all about that. I guess JJ wants to be a big movie star out in Hollywood?
Zach Davis: Yeah, I can't wait for him to star in Dracula Invades Ohio and Rocky VII: Dracula's Revenge.
Shannan Lerch: Lawl.
Biohazard whips Jimpy into the ropes...Frankensteiner! Biohazard celebrates by doing the bull dance. The crowd boos, but Biohazard doesn't care. He just keeps on doing that crazy, sexy, cool bull dance. Biohazard has enough bull dance and decides to climb to the top rope. Biohazard spits some green ooze into the air before hitting a somersault legdrop on Jimpy. Biohazard hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: This weather here in Allegheny, PA is killing me. I got this real bad arthritis and it acts up whenever we have rain or cold weather.
Shannan Lerch: That's sucks, yo. Perhaps you should take a vacation down to the Bahamas? I hear it's lovely down there this type of year.
Zach Davis: Nah, they got them kidney thieves and such. I'd rather take an Ibuprofen and deal with the arthritis. Kidneys don't come cheap, you know.
Biohazard climbs to the outside of the ring and waits on the apron. Jimpy gets up and Biohazard attempts a springboard hurricanrana, but Jimpy catches him and hits a sit-out powerbomb. Both men are down and in pain on the mat. The crowd is cheering encouragement for Jimpy, but neither man shows any signs of life. The referee begins to count both men out. Finally both men begin to stir. Biohazard is up first. He goes for a superkick, but Jimpy ducks and hits Biohazard with an exploder suplex. The fans cheer as Jimpy rips off his shirt and tosses it into the crowd. Jimpy has a focused look on his face as he waits for Biohazard to get up. Jimpy grabs Biohazard and plants him with a Moss Covered Three Handled Family Gredunza. Jimpy makes the cover and hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: I am so fresh, so cool.
Shannan Lerch: What time?
Zach Davis: I am so fresh, so cool.
Shannan Lerch: Bring it down, y'all.
Zach Davis: Yo this is how we roll, white people lookin like a ghost, I'm the host with the most, bodacious yeah I'm outrageous, puttin yo ass in plastic because I'm spastic, turn that radio up one mo time yo, this is how we roll.
Shannan Lerch: Word...life.
Jimpy remains in control as he whips Biohazard into the ropes and sends the high flyer flying high with a backbody drop. Jimpy pumps his fist into the air as he can sense victory is near. Jimpy exits the ring and grabs a metal folding chair from the ringside area. Jimpy climbs back into the ring with the chair. The referee warns Jimpy not to hit Biohazard with the chair, but instead Jimpy places the chair across the face and chest of his prone opponent. Jimpy hits the rolling thunder legdrop across the chair and injures himself in the process, but injures Biohazard a lot worse. Jimpy grabs his back, taking a moment to recover, before making the pin attempt. Jimpy hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: Oh my god that was a very near fall for Jimpy. What an upset this would be. What a feather in the cap for Jimpy if he beats Biohazard.
Shannan Lerch: Yo this is how we roll--
Zach Davis: No, we're not doing that now. We have to devote some time to calling the match or they'll have us out of here faster than Don Imus at an NAACP convention.
Jimpy is going for the Hangman's Horror. He picks Biohazard up into the crucifix position, but Biohazard manages to slide out of Jimpy's grasp. Jimpy turns around and Biohazard kicks him in the midsection. Biohazard goes for the Trip to the Wasteland, but Jimpy is too heavy for Biohazard to lift. Biohazard is frustrated and he levels Jimpy with a snap DDT. Biohazard climbs to the top rope and hits a split-legged moonsault on Jimpy. Biohazard isn't finished yet. He goes back to the top and attempts a corkscrew senton, but Jimpy rolls out of the way. Biohazard incredibly manages to land on his feet, but he immediately grasps his knee.
Zach Davis: Holy shit it looks like Biohazard is injured.
Shannan Lerch: I hope he's okay. We're supposed to go to dinner after the show and I don't want his mobility to be inhibited when we have, uh, dessert.
The referee checks on Biohazard when suddenly a chorus of boos reigns down from the audience. Bobby Cairo is making his way down the aisle complete with wrestling gear and "Uh-oh! SpaghettiOs!" t-shirt. The referee is preoccupied by Biohazard and so Cairo rolls into the ring and sneaks up behind Jimpy. Cairo taps Jimpy on the shoulder. Jimpy turns around. Cairo kicks Jimpy in the midsection. Cairo plants Jimpy with the Security Breach and rolls out of the ring. The referee turns around and is shocked to see Jimpy unconscious on the mat. Biohazard is suddenly magically recovered and he runs over to make the cover. The referee notices Cairo smirking on the outside of the ring, but there's nothing that he can do.
Zach Davis: Biohazard wins this match and it looks like everything is cool with the Serpent Saints after all!
Shannan Lerch: Russo swerve! Russo swerve! Bah gawd, it's a Russo swerve!
The Serpent Saints celebrate in the middle of the ring as fans throw trash and "Breakdown" blasts over the PA system.
Television Title Tournament Match
Safestyle Jack vs Lawnmower Jones
We hear the beginning to Nonpoint's "Bullet With A Name". A faint silhouette is shown in the entry way, kneeling down with his head down as the masses of fans get to their feet. As the song continues to build itself the strobe light goes faster and faster. Once the chorus hits, bubbles appear on the stage because pyro is too dangerous as the strobe light stops. A red spotlight shines brightly on Safestyle Jack as he is kneeling down. He springs to his feet and throws his arms out. The fans are booing seeing Safestyle Jack as he starts to look around. As they start to walk to the ring, the spotlight stays on him as the people continue to boo him. Safestyle Jack looks at the fans in disgust, claiming they aren't all that safe. Once he is in the middle of the ramp, he stops and starts to hype himself up as he throws his arm into the air and lifts it high. A string of confetti shoots down the ramp as he brings the arm back down. He continues yelling at the booing fans. After he gets to the ring apron, he rolls into the ring, hopping on the nearest turnbuckle, throwing out his arms once more. The crowd boos, as he hops down and does the same on the opposite turnbuckle. He jumps off the turnbuckle, then crouches down, waiting for his opponent.
Zach Davis: Worst. Character. Ever.
The words My Name is Lawnmower Jones, and I Love to Mow! are heard across the arena. Then, Scottish bagpipes are heard around the arena, as a motor starting then a lawnmower mowing is heard. Lawnmower Jones appears on the stage without Lonnie, his lawnmower. He looks saddened and depressed as he walks down the ramp and he rolls into the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Poor guy. I wonder when Lonnie's coming back.
The bell rings.
Zach Davis: This really is a mismatch if I've ever seen one.
Jack and Jones approach one another, and Jack begins to exhaust his moveset as he takes wild punches and kicks. Jones dodges them, throws him to the ropes and hits a huge T-Bone Suplex!
Shannan Lerch: Ouch, very nice. Not very safe, though.
Jones approaches Jack, but SSJ reaches up and low blows him. Jones steps back a few paces, Jack rolls him up and puts his feet on the ropes!
Zach Davis: OH NO FEET ON ROPES PIN!
No! Jones gets free. He quickly gets to his feet, as does SSJ. Jones runs at Jack, but Jack quickly moves around him and locks him in a Sleeper.
Shannan Lerch: Yawn. Here we go.
Jones slowly drops to one knee, but the fans are behind him. They begin clapping and cheering and all of that jazz, and of course Safestyle Jack gets the "OH NO!" look on his face. Jones works himself up, elbows Jack a few times and then runs to the ropes, getting free of the Sleeper, and then Clotheslines Jack down. Jack gets right back up, goes for a Clothesline of his own, Jack ducks it and locks in the Jonesmission!
Zach Davis: There it is!
Jones drops Jack to the mat, and within a second Jack has given up.
Shannan Lerch: And there you have it! Lawnmower Jones advances in the Television Title tournament.
Jones stands up, having his arm raised, and leaves the ring, heading to the back.
Reckless Jack Segment
We hear the start of A.F.I.'s "This Time Imperfect" comes into the arena as the lights go out. Blue strobe light starts up as the crowd rocks out to the song, awaiting the next wrestler to come out down to the ring. The strobe light stops only to see it start again, this time with a reddish hue to it. A faint silhouette is shown in the entry way, kneeling down with his head down. There is also a white mist surrounding the area where the silhouette is at. The crowd knows who it is at this point and they start to all throw their arms in preparation for who is about to do it. The strobe light stops when the chorus comes in for a second time when pyro explodes as a red spotlight shines brightly on Reckless Jack as he is kneeling down. He springs to his feet and throws his arms out. The fans are cheering seeing Reckless Jack as he starts to breath deeply and exhale. Reckless Jack looks on at the fans, some of which happening to be headbanging out to the song while the others are just kinda enjoying what is going on. Reckless Jack smirks as he starts to walk down to the ring in his out of ring attire which consists of a WCF Hoodie, gym shorts, and his wrestling boots... with the AWESOME FUCKING KICKPADS. SO GODDAMN SWEET! The spotlight stays on him as the people continue to cheer. He slaps a few hands on his way to the ring. Once Reckless Jack is in the middle of the ramp, he stops and starts to hype himself up as he throws his arm into the air and lifts it high. A string of pyro shoots down the ramp as he brings the arm back down. He continues slapping hands with the cheering fans. After he gets to the ring apron, he rolls into the ring, hopping on the nearest turnbuckle, throwing out his arms once more. The crowd cheering, as he hops down and does the same on the opposite turnbuckle. He jumps off the turnbuckle, then crouches down, pulling a microphone out of the hoodie.
Reckless Jack: You know, after XIII on Friday night, after I defeated my good friend, JJ Biggs, it occurs to me that there is this piece of shit known as Safestyle Jack running around this promotion. This guy is trying to piss all over everything I made for my namesake. Yeah, I might not be as Reckless as I once was but that whole Brad Wallace thing didn't work out too well. Regardless, this kid is really pissing me off. He even stole my old entrance. What the hell is his problem?
The crowd is confused as well.
Reckless Jack: As we know, in a couple of weeks, we have a show called Payback coming up. And at this time, I wish to have Safestyle Jack get his ass down to this ring and accept my challenge to a match. But not just a normal match though, nah, I want him out of his safe little world. This match is going to be...
Reckless Jack is cut off by the sounds of... Nonpoint's "Bullet With A Name". A faint silhouette is shown in the entry way, kneeling down with his head down as the masses of fans get to their feet. As the song continues to build itself the strobe light goes faster and faster. Once the chorus hits, bubbles appear on the stage because pyro is too dangerous as the strobe light stops. A red spotlight shines brightly on Safestyle Jack as he is kneeling down. He springs to his feet and throws his arms out. The fans are booing seeing Safestyle Jack as he starts to look around. As they start to walk to the ring, the spotlight stays on him as the people continue to boo him. Safestyle Jack looks at the fans in disgust, claiming they aren't all that safe. Once he is in the middle of the ramp, he stops and starts to hype himself up as he throws his arm into the air and lifts it high. A string of confetti shoots down the ramp as he brings the arm back down. He continues yelling at the booing fans. After he gets to the ring apron, he rolls into the ring, hopping on the nearest turnbuckle, throwing out his arms once more. The crowd boos, as he hops down and does the same on the opposite turnbuckle. He jumps off the turnbuckle, then crouches down, getting a microphone for himself. What a total mockery of Reckless Jack and right in front of his face.
Safestyle Jack: You know, I have a problem with you as well, you are too crazy. All those moves you do, too dangerous. You could really hurt yourself or the others around you.
Reckless Jack: You shut your face!
Safestyle Jack: NO YOU SHUT YOUR FACE MR. I DROP PEOPLE ON THEIR HEADS AND DON'T CARE!
Safestyle Jack gets into the face of Reckless Jack.
Reckless Jack: Get out of my face shit breath.
The crowd "Ohhhhhhs" after hearing that.
Safestyle Jack: I had onions for lunch, sorry.
Reckless Jack: You'll be sorry when I wipe that fucking smirk off your face.
Safestyle Jack: Well, I'll put you in the World's Most Dangerous Chinlock. What do you think about that?
Reckless Jack lowers his head and smirks... before exploding with a right hand! Safestyle Jack flies back as Reckless Jack keeps on the attack. Safestyle is pulled up for the Reckless Killing but he is able to drop down behind. Then he locks in the Main Event Sleeper!!! To counter this, Reckless Jack grabs him and throws him over his shoulder. Safestyle Jack rolls out of the ring, claiming that wasn;t a safe move! Reckless Jack picks up a microphone.
Reckless Jack: Now, what I was going to say before you interupted me was simple. Reckless Jack vs. Safestyle Jack at Payback in a, oh I don't know... Glass Tables match!
The crowd roars at this prospect.
Reckless Jack: Now, the rules are different from what you expect. The match doesn't end by just putting your opponent through a Glass Table in my rules. No, after that, you have to put them through a second, then a third, then a fourth. I guess it could be called a Quadurple Glass Tables match but you know, I'll take any risk in order to get you out of this promotion and out of that shit gimmick of yours.
Naturally, Safestyle Jack throws a fit as "This Time Imperfect" fills the arena again.
Television Title Tournament Match
Mike Ragnal vs Johnny Craven
The lights dim as bells begin to toll very slowly. Then fire erupts from the ramp and entrance as the chorus of "Hey Man Nice Shot" by Filter plays. AT this time Johnny Craven comes riding out on a Harley that is black colored with dark red and orange flames on the front, sides, and back. He stops at the top of the ramp to take the cheers all in and then he rides down to the ramp and gets off of his bike. He then enters the ring and climbs all four turnbuckles , raising his arms in the air on each turnbuckle. Then the lights come back on.
Zach Davis: And here comes Johnny Craven, who looks to have a bright future in mind.
The lights begin blinking several different colors as H! VLTG3 by Linkin Park hits.

Mike gets to his feet, and raises a fist high in the air, while Sasha heads to their corner and cheers Mike on.
Shannan Lerch: And out next is Mike Ragnal, Who’s on his way for a second chance at gaining the WCF Television Championship!

Craven picks Mike up and delivers a few open punches to Mike’s face.

Television Title Tournament Match
Bobby Cairo vs Danny Vice
Zach Davis: And now it is time for our main event!
Shannan Lerch: Two of WCF's top competitors will battle it out.. this is classic, fo sho.
Pyrotechnics explode at the top of the ramp, the lights in the arena flicker. "11 Dreams" by Mercenary echoes throughout the building and the crowd immediately pops. Bobby Cairo appears at the top of the ramp and the crowd cheers even louder. Cairo struts down to the ring with a smug look on his face as flashbulbs go off all around the arena.
"Faint" by Linkin Park hits the speakers as the lights of the arena go out for several seconds. Two spotlights shine at the top of the ramp where Danny "The Vagrant" Vice stands. He is dressed in a black long tights, and a long black leather jacket. He looks to his left and right as the crowd cheers, but his eyes give off almost a look of paranoia. He walks to the ring with a dead stare towards the center of the ring before sliding under the bottom rope. He climbs the top rope and lifts a single fist in the air as a “V” pyro hits behind him.
Vice and Cairo circle around each other and Cairo holds out his hand for a lockup. Miguel slaps his hand down and Cairo tries again with his other hand.

Zach Davis: Some quick pin attempts by both men here. With an opportunity for a Television Title match on the line, I’m sure it will take more than that to pick up the victory.
Vice runs at Cairo, is met with an arm drag and is flung across the ring. Cairo bounces off the near ropes and drops a running elbow on Vice’s back. Cairo grabs Vice’s leg and drags him to the center of the ring. Cairo then puts Vice in a Texas Cloverleaf.
Zach Davis: Cairo takes advantage and puts Vice in a Texas Cloverleaf.
Shananan Lerch: More like a Canadian Maple leaf.
Zach Davis: What does that even mean?
Vice struggles to get to the ropes but Cairo’s hold is too strong. Vice fights and manages to kick Cairo loose. Vice makes it to his feet but Cairo slams him back down to the mat with a German suplex. Cairo pulls Vice to his feet and uses a backbreaker slam, but Vice reverses it into an inverted DDT. Vice with a cover.
Cairo gets a shoulder up with a nearfall for Vice.
Zach Davis: Vice nearly picked up the victory there.
Shannan Lerch: And you mock my insight.
At the top of the ramp, Thunder and Janie Vice walk out from backstage to a loud boo from the crowd. Danny Vice stands over at the ropes and begins to shout up the ramp at Thunder and Janie as they begin to walk down. Thunder shouts back at him as Janie rubs the Hardcore Title that is wrapped around his waist. Cairo slides behind Vice and grabs him in a quick schoolboy pin.
No! Vice kicks out at the last second.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like Janie and Thunder’s distraction nearly cost Vice this match.
Zach Davis: And it also looks like Janie and Thunder are joining us on commentary for this match.
Janie and Thunder sit down while Bobby Cairo works Danny Vice over in the corner with several chops and right hands. The referee warns Cairo to use an open hand, but Cairo shoves him aside and instead stomps Vice to the mat.
Thunder: See, Danny Vice is nothing but a washed-up nobody.
Janie Vice: That’s right. He couldn’t do what was necessary to win that title around my babies waist. He doesn’t have what it takes anymore. Ever since he decided to befriend Skyler Striker, his career dropped off.
Shannan Lerch: I agree, he’s already peaked.
Zach Davis: Danny Vice has been a staple of this federation, much like his impressive opponenet Bobby Cairo.
Cairo hits a brainbuster on Vice back in the ring. The crowd booes and Cairo follows up with several right hands to the head. Vice looks as if he’s in another world as he struggles to his feet. Cairo laughs and then drops Vice with a short-arm clothesline.
Shannan Lerch: He’s toying with Vice.
Thunder: Who doesn’t?
Cairo pulls Vice up and hits a german suplex. Cairo refuses to release the grasp and hits a second german suplex. He pulls Vice to his feet once more and puts Vice on his shoulders, hitting him with Loco Vuelo.
Janie Vice: There goes Danny.
Cairo takes a second to give a sadistic smile to the crowd. He covers Vice.
No! Danny gets a shoulder up.
Shananan Lerch: What…
Janie Vice: the…
Zach Davis: Looks like Vice has a little more in him than you three give credit.
Cairo also looks shocked in the ring. He gets to his feet and tries to lock in the Cairopractor. He begins to turn Vice over, he begins to shake his head and arms as the crowd rises to their feet in support. Vice finally powers through and kicks Cairo off. Vice kips up as Cairo charges and hits an atomic drop. Vice then bounds off the ropes and hits a flying forearm to drop Cairo to the mat.
Zach Davis: Vice is on a roll now and the crowd is really behind him.
Thunder: This cannot be happening.
Janie Vice: Do something Thunder!
Shannan Lerch: Yeah, do something!
Vice is up first. Cairo slowly gets to his feet turns into a snap suplex from Vice. Vice pops up quickly and hushes the crowd.
Zach Davis: I think it’s time for the Outkast!
Thunder: That’s it, I’ve had enough.
Thunder takes off his headset and folds his chair up. Vice is in the corner waiting for Cairo to get to his feet. Thunder slides into the ring with the chair in hand.
Janie Vice: My man always takes care of business.
The referee turns his attention to Thunder and stops him from entering the ring. Vice also turns his attention to Thunder as Cairo reaches his feet. Cairo runs at Vice and swings wildly, Vice ducks it and kicks him in the guy. Vice rolls Cairo over for Rejection, but Thunder makes his way into the ring and swings the chair at Vice. Vice avoids the attack and shoves Cairo across the ring. Thunder now stands between Vice and Cairo with the chair in hand. He smiles, turns, and delivers a sickening chairshot to the head of Bobby Cairo. The referee calls for the bell.
Zach Davis: Why would Thunder hit Bobby Cairo?
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner by disqualification, Bobby Cairo!
Janie Vice: To disqualify Vice from the TV title tournament.
Shannan Lerch: He is brilliant!
Thunder rolls out of the ring as Janie collects his hardcore title and meets him at the bottom of the ramp. The two smile back at Vice in the ring, who is stunned at what just happened. Cairo, meanwhile, is busted open and confused as to why the referee is raising his hand as he sits in the ring, checking his forehead.
