Sunday Slam Intro
Sitting by M83 once again blasts and Slam is up and running! The fans hold up their signs, which include "Jesper Pooped On My Father's Grave," "We Want Piranhas!" and "Long Live The Euthanasia Match!" We go ringside where Zach Davis and Shannan Lerch are sitting.
Zach Davis: Welcome to Slam! We have to make this fast, because good lord, we have eight matches tonight.
Shannan Lerch: We're one week away from Payback, and tonight we have a World Title match featuring Outcast and Jack of Blades.
Zach Davis: As we all know, Merc and Steve Carr of Team NCW were able to beat Jack at Creeping Death's XIII. Can Outcast duplicate their success?
Shannan Lerch: Well, we've received word that both Merc and former NCW owner, Steve Carr, have refused to be at Slam due to Jack of Blades and Jesper's antics. That only leaves Rick Mad in Team NCW to run interference.
Zach Davis: We also have a match that fans have been waiting for since it was rumored a few months ago. Davey Boone is going one on one with Logan.
Shannan Lerch: Interesting situation, though. Seth wants Boone to.. well..
Zach Davis: I'll say it. Seth wants Boone to do his dirtywork. Seth wants Boone to take Logan out before their big Glass rematch at Payback.
Shannan Lerch: Hopefully Boone does the right thing.
Zach Davis: I don't think Boone took too kindly to Seth's words, actually.
Shannan Lerch: We've got Team Xtreme defending the Tag Titles, up against Danny Vice and the Hardcore Champion, Thunder. Danny Vice and Thunder are, of course, no stranger to Tag Titles, having waged war as part of Disorder by Design and Striker/Thunder, respectively. However, these two men hate each other and have been fighting for months. Seth just likes to put enemies together in tag matches, he's a sadist like that.
Zach Davis: Cough bad booking cough.
Shannan Lerch: HEY NOW.
Zach Davis: Our Television Title Tournament marches on, with Lawnmower Jones vs Biohazard and Bobby Cairo vs Mike Ragnal. Biohazard has been a thorn in Jones' side ever since he arrived here, and this is his chance to get revenge... and possibly earn his match at Payback against Bobby Cairo. IF Cairo can defeat Ragnal.
Shannan Lerch: We have an MCE grudge match, with Creeping Death teaming with Dehart to take on Nick Woo and Keiji Ezaki. Dehart, of course, has an Ultraviolent Ladder Match for the MCE Title coming up at Payback, against Nemesis. But now he gets to deal with Nick Woo, his former best friend.
Zach Davis: The Alliance of Violence is no more. We have Adam Knite, who has turned on Davey Boone, going up against Johnny Craven, Boone's friend and associate.
Shannan Lerch: And at Payback, Boone and Craven will team to take on Knite and... someone. We don't know who yet. I'm not even sure if Adam knows.
Zach Davis: And lastly, in our opening bout, we have newcomer Zane taking on Jay Williams. Williams was impressive against Outcast last week and has been impressive since his debut, so lets see how he does tonight.
Zane vs Jay Williams
“Face The Pain” By Stemm. The lights flicker green orange and white as Zane makes his way to the ring. Once in the ring he climbs to the top turnbuckle and a pyro goes off as he jumps down.
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: Zane is new here, and-
The bell rings and in that instance, Jay Williams is on Zane like white on rice, or like an overused cliche phrase. Williams tackles Zane down and hits him with stiff lefts and rights. Seeing as stiff lefts and rights are illegal, the ref soon convinces Williams to get off him. He does, and then waits for Zane to stand up... Zane is on one knee... BAM, Williams hits a huge Shining Wizard!
Shannan Lerch: Oof. What a move.
Williams isn't done, of course. He picks Zane up, who is quite groggy, and throws him to the ropes... Spinebuster! The crowd is on Dynamite's side now, cheering him on. Williams climbs to the top...
Zach Davis: I think I know what he's going for here...
And flies off with the Williams Drop!
Shannan Lerch: Another great move!
Williams signals that he's going to end it. He picks Zane up...
Zach Davis: Williams Driver! That is all she wrote, folks.
Shannan Lerch: Williams was just toying with this man.
Zach Davis: That's right. Another impressive victory.
Williams stands up and gets his arm raised before dropping down and heading to the back.
Shannan Lerch: Once this man gets in a groove here in WCF, I have a feeling there is nothing he can't do.
Jay Williams disappears to the back.
Adam Knite 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. Down the ramp walks Johnny Craven as he holds his arms up high and the crowd gives him a huge ovation. Before he can get halfway down to the ramp, Adam Knite is seen running down and attacks Craven from behind!
Zach Davis: Knite is wasting no time against Craven in this match and wants to take full advantage of him!
Shannan Lerch: He should have driven the motorcycle!
Knite grabs Craven and swings him into the steal barrier as Craven clutches his ribs. Knite continues his assault as Kelly Fox comes out right behind him. Knite slams Craven face first into the ring post and then climbs into the ring. The referee is getting on to Knite for jumping the gun as Kelly slaps Craven in the face as Craven slides into the ring holding his face and the referee finally calls for the bell as Knite begins stomping on Craven as he’s attempting to get back to his feet. Knite is now seen working on the legs of Johnny Craven as Kelly is cheering him on. The crowd is mixed to both competitors as Knite grabs Craven and places him in a side head lock and has him down on the mat. The crowd is coming to life as Craven is trying to get fired back up to his feet. Before he can stand up Knite brings him back down to the mat again! Knite finally lets go of the hold and grabs the arm and places him in an arm lock and lifts his knees up and down into the arm of Craven! And then does it again! Craven clutches his shoulder in pain as Knite gets up and holds up his arms and walks over to Craven again. Craven is on his hands and knees and slams his elbow into the gut of Knite who comes back with a forearm to the back of Craven, Craven with another elbow to the gut of Knite and Knite steps on the fingers of Craven as he clutches his fingers in pain! Knite seems to be in total control of the match. Knite lifts up Craven and swings him into the match as Craven comes back Knite catches him with a huge power slam and a pin!
Zach Davis: KICK OUT BY CRAVEN!
Knite slams his forearm into the head of Craven again and picks him back up hooking his waist from behind attempting a belly to back suplex. It is reversed by Craven who nails Knite with a belly to back suplex of his own! Both men are down as Kelly tries to stir Knite! Knite is back up to his feet as Craven staggers up to his and slowly turns around KNITES OF THE ROUND!!!! Knite is down as it took a lot out of him getting the big man up off his feet! Knite rolls over covering Craven up!
Shannan Lerch: 3..KICK OUT BY CRAVEN!
Zach Davis: Craven showing a lot of heart here.
Kelly is in shock! Craven kicked out of the Knites of the Round! Knite slowly gets back up and picks up Craven with him, Knite swings Craven into the opposite corner as Craven hits it and Knite follows up with a big splash but Craven moves out of the way! Knite comes out of the corner as Craven grabs him by the throat and throws him back into the corner and begins hammering him with rights and lefts as the crowd is going crazy! Knite goes down in the corner! Craven holds his boot on the throat of Knite and then gives a huge stomp before backing up. Knite slowly climbs back to his feet and turns around as Craven snaps the noose around his throat for the chokeslam! AND NAILS IT! Cover...
Shannan Lerch: Now a kickout by Knight!
Craven is up on his feet and gives the cut throat sign to the crowd signaling it is time for the Lights Out! Kelly Fox climbs up on the apron as the referee turns his attention to her.
Zach Davis: What is she doing? She’s going to cost Adam Knite the match!
Shannan Lerch: Not if Craven has anything to do with it!
Craven walks over and grabs Kelly by the throat as the referee is trying to stop him and Kelly breaks his grasp and falls off the apron. Knite grabs Craven from behind and rolls him up into a pin but then changes it after the roll up into the RESTLESS KNITE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! Will Craven tap out? The crowd begins to stand to their feet and looking up the entrance in hopes of seeing Davey Boone sprint to the rescue, but Craven is gutting it out! The referee is asking Craven if he wants to give up as Craven shakes his head no and begins crawling towards the ropes, he reaches out but Knite pulls him back before he can break the hold! The crowd is going crazy behind Craven as he begins pumping himself back up and is crawling back over to the ropes as Knite begins to loosen the hold and Craven reaches the ropes! Knite breaks the hold and thinks he has won the match! He’s holding up his arms in victory as the referee is trying to tell him he didn’t win. Craven pulls himself back up to his knees and to his feet as he’s leaning into the corner. Knite is mad as hell and looks over at Craven and sprints towards him for a splash but Craven moves out of the way....LIGHTS OUT! Craven makes the cover and lifts the legs!!!!
3....!!!!!! TEXAS RED HAS WON HIS FIRST MATCH IN THE WCF!!! What a big win against a former champion like Adam Knite! Craven quickly rolls out of the ring as the referee lifts his arms up in victory. Craven limps back up the ramp as Kelly is reviving Adam in the middle of the ring.
Zach Davis: What a match and Craven finally did it! He finally won his first match in the WCF and what a match it was!
Shannan Lerch: Hopefully the Red River Mafia can carry this win on into Payback and use it as momentum.
Mike Ragnal Segment
Backstage in the locker room, Mike Ragnal is looking in a mirror to adjust his baseball cap, while Sasha is behind him, watching him with a smile and her arms crossed.
Sasha: You ready, luv?
Mike Ragnal: Hell yeah! Listen up. I've got Cairo to face for this one match before Payback, and then next week, I'll be going against biohazard or Jones for the WCF Television title!
Sasha: Hold on now, focus on tonight! You're still facing Bobby Cairo tonight.
Mike turns away from the mirror, feeling the hat is well adjusted, then turns to Sasha.
Mike Ragnal: I realize. But yanno, Cario's in that HUGE match for contendership. When you think about it, where's his focus really gonna be? On the biggest title ever, or one some new guy who could barely beat Logan?
Sasha: Well, you got a point...
Mike pulls in Sasha, and wraps his arms around her. They look at one another, smiling as they gaze into one another's eyes.
Mike Ragnal: Just trust me on this. Now let's get going.
Mike and Sasha peck on the lips, and then walk out of the room arm in arm.
MCE Grudge Match
Creeping Death/Dehart vs Nick Woo/Keiji Ezaki
Nate Nytro and Jodia are shown at ringside beside Shannon Lerch and Zach Davis.
Jodia: Fans, welcome to a grudge match. Creeping Death and Dehart against Nick Woo and Keiji Ezaki.
Nate Nytro: That's right, Woo, Ezaki, Pennywise, and Nemesis, the MCE Champion, turned their backs on MCE and broke the code. I think it was a code, anyways. Respect.
Jodia: Thus, CD set up Dehart against Nemesis in an Ultraviolent Ladder Match at Payback. Barbed wire ropes. Ladder match rules. Good God, every once WCF has had was a career shortener.
"Merciless Cult" by Dir en Gray blasts over the PA system and the crowd begins booing. Ezaki and Woo come out from the backstage area.
Suddenly, CD and Dehart run out from the back weilding chairs ... and each take a shot to the back of the opponents head! Dehart to Woo, CD to Ezaki! The crowd goes nuuuts.
Nate Nytro: Oh noes. Payback starts now!
Woo and Ezaki roll down the entrance ramp, CD and Dehart following. But from behind them come Pennywise and Nemesis with chairs of their own, and take out CD and Dehart!
Jodia: The numbers game is too high.
Pennywise and Nemesis throw Dehart into the ring as Ezaki and Woo work over CD on the floor. Inside, Nemesis picks Dehart up in a powerbomb, and Pennywise scales the turnbuckle. Woo hands Pennywise a chair and he leaps off towards Dehart, clocking him in the skull as Nemesis hits the powerbomb!
Nate Nytro: God ... damnit.
Nate Nytro stands up from the announcers table after throwing his headset down.
Nytro slides in and is met by a vicious lariat from Pennywise. Nemesis dropkicks Nate out of the ring, where Woo and Ezaki take over beating him down. Suddenly, someone runs out and dominates both Woo and Ezaki on the outside with a title belt.
Jodia: Is that..?
He slides into the ring and finally stops, looking at Pennywise and Nemesis.
Jodia: Jack of Blades, WCF World Champion!
Pennywise and Nemesis try to rush JoB, but Pennywise is met with a WCF Title to the skull. Nemesis stops and rolls out of the ring, point and jaw jacking with JoB. Ezaki rolls Pennywise out from the outside of the ring, and they join Nemesis at the top of the ramp. JoB throws the WCF World Title down and challenges the MCE wrestlers, to no avail.
Jodia: What in the world is going on here?!
Nate Nytro is back up on the outside and helps CD to his feet, and they walk up the ramp. Dehart stands up in the ring and looks at JoB, who just leaves. Dehart is handed a microphone as JoB makes his way to the back.
Dehart: Nemesis, you pussy, at Payback I'm going to make sure you and your little group don't ever come back to WCF. But for now ... Nick ... I know you're still out here. Let's go, one on one, right now.
Woo slowly makes his way into the ring holding his head. Woo flips Dehart off and drops to the mat, rolling under the bottom rope. Dehart doesn't hesistate though, as he hits Woo in the back with a baseball slide dropkick, sending Woo chest first into the guard railing!
Jodia: Dehart sent out the challenge, but Nick Woo denied him!
Woo stumbles his way up the ramp leaving Dehart in the ring. The crowd boos Nick on his way out. We fade out.
Television Title Tournament Match
Bobby Cairo vs Mike Ragnal
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, with Sasha Pehl at his side, her arms wrapped around his. He walks to the ring, looking out at the thousands in attendance along the way. Sasha lets go of Mike as he rolls into the ring. Mike gets to his feet, and raises a fist high in the air, while Sasha heads to their corner and cheers Mike on.
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 boos. Bobby Cairo appears at the top of the ramp and the crowd boos even louder. Cairo slowly walks down to the ring with no expression on his face as middle fingers go up all around the arena.
Zach Davis: A lot of fans have been looking forward to this matchup, Shannan. It figures to be one hell of a technical masterpiece.
Shannan Lerch: Indeed, Zach. Both of these men are known as skilled technicians. However, I was chatting Cairo before tonight's broadcast and he seemed skeptical to say the least in regard to Ragnal's capabilities.
Zach Davis: Hmm...did you offer him a slice of that new stuffed crust pizza with the pepperoni and sausage?
Shannan Lerch: Oh, mos def.
Cairo grabs hold of a microphone and demands time to speak before the match.
Bobby Cairo: A lot of people have walked up to me this past week and they've said "Hey, Cairo, I can't wait until your match with Ragnal. It should be a real classic. Both of you guys are such great technicians." I told each and every one of those people to [BLEEP] off. Cairo is not a mere technician. Cairo is a wizard of the squared circle. Cairo is a god among insects. Cairo is the sun burning inside of you as your limbs begin to splinter. Mike Ragnal, on the other hand, is a fruity booty.
Ragnal takes exception and gets in Cairo's face.
Bobby Cairo: Oh you got a problem with that, Ragnal? You gonna do something to Bobby Cairo? Do it, suckah!
Ragnal sweeps Cairo's legs out from under him, the bell rings to officially start the match. Ragnal goes for an elbow drop, Cairo rolls out of the way. Cairo attempts a whip into the ropes, Ragnal reverses it. Cairo reverses the reversal, stops short and takes Ragnal down with a clothesline. Cairo whips Ragnal into the corner. Cairo charges in, Ragnal lifts his boot and catches Cairo square in the jaw. Cairo is staggered, Ragnal knocks Cairo down with a running lariat. Cairo is back up, Ragnal grabs Cairo around the waist and hits the rolling Germans. Ragnal waits for Cairo to get up, Ragnal hits Cairo with a stiff running kneelift. Cairo rolls out to the floor to regroup.
Zach Davis: Cairo is in a world of hurt early in this match! I don't think he expected this kind of onslaught from Mike Ragnal!
In the corner of his eye, Cairo notices the alluring charms of Miss Pehl. Cairo walks over to Sasha and begins to sweet talk her.
Shannan Lerch: That sly dog Cairo is putting the moves on Ragnal's girl! Ragnal doesn't look pleased by this turn of events!
Ragnal climbs out of the ring and makes a beeline toward Cairo. Cairo grabs Sasha and shoves her into Ragnal. Ragnal checks on Sasha to make sure that she's okay. Cairo uses the distraction to hit Ragnal with an ultrastiff superkick right to the face. Cairo rolls Ragnal into the ring. Cairo stomps away at Ragnal's shoulder, dropping a knee for additional damage. Cairo hits Ragnal with a snap suplex, then locks Ragnal in a surfboard hold and stretches him out.
Zach Davis: Cairo is trying to wear down Ragnal's shoulder. We've seen this before, Shannan.
Shannan Lerch: That's always been Cairo's bread and butter, Zach. He chooses a body part and focuses his entire offense on that part. Sometimes it's the leg, today he's going with the shoulder. Could this be a prelude to the Clap Trap?
Cairo releases the hold after a satisfactory amount of punishment has been dealt to Ragnal. Cairo goes to the corner, climbs to the second rope, Cairo drops an elbow to Ragnal's shoulder. Cairo plants Ragnal with a gourdbuster. Cairo goes back to the corner. Cairo attempts another elbow drop from the second rope, this time Ragnal rolls out of the way. Ragnal takes a moment to rub the feeling back into his shoulder. Ragnal peppers Cairo with right hands, knocking him down with a clothesline. Ragnal whips Cairo into the ropes, Cairo reverses. Cairo telegraphs a backbody drop, Ragnal kicks Cairo in the midsection, plants him with the big snap spinebuster.
Zach Davis: Snap spinebuster by Ragnal! That move has become his trademark and he does it better than anybody!
Shannan Lerch: Ragnal is on a roll, Zach. This could be big trouble for Cairo.
Ragnal waits for Cairo to get up, then sneaks up behind and locks him in the Shock to the System. Cairo struggles to get away like a rat caught in a trap. Ragnal grapevines his legs around Cairo's waist, drives him to the mat for greater leverage. Cairo squirms around in a vain attempt to escape. Ragnal cinches in to increase the pressure, Cairo lets out a pained scream. Cairo goes limp for a few moments. The referee checks to see if Cairo is still conscious. Suddenly, Cairo comes to life with a burst of energy. Cairo rolls onto his stomach, carefully balances his head and shoulders on the mat to gain leverage, then struggles to his feet. Ragnal still has the Shock to the System and the grapevine locked in. Cairo runs backwards into the turnbuckles, sandwiching Ragnal between the turnbuckles and himself. Both men collapse to the mat in a heap.
Zach Davis: Oh my god, what a mass of humanity! Cairo breaks Ragnal's Shock to the System and both men are down on the mat!
Shannan Lerch: Both of these guys so badly want to be in the TV Title tournament finals at Payback. They're laying it all on the line tonight, Zach.
Sasha cheers at ringside for her man and the crowd gets on their feet and joins her. Both men slowly crawl to their feet. Cairo goes after Ragnal with a spinning heel kick, Ragnal ducks, Cairo crotches himself on the top rope. The crowd cheers loudly and chants "You fucked up!" at Cairo, ala the old school ECW fans. Ragnal climbs outside to the adjacent side of the ring, springboards off the top rope and knocks Cairo to the floor with a dropkick. Cairo slowly gets up, Ragnal flies through the ropes with a suicide dive knocking Cairo into the guardrail.
Zach Davis: Suicide dive by Mike Ragnal and he's firmly in control of this match!
Shannan Lerch: This could be panic time if you're Bobby Cairo, that is if his brains haven't already been scrambled.
Ragnal drills Cairo with an armtrap neckbreaker on the concrete, then he slides Cairo back into the ring. Ragnal covers Cairo and hooks the leg. Cairo barely kicks out after two. Ragnal climbs to the top rope, goes for the High Voltage, Cairo rolls out of the way, Ragnal crashes backfirst onto the canvas. Cairo takes a moment to recover before prancing around the ring like a bullfighter.
Zach Davis: Oh noes! This can't be good! It's that Tito Santana shit!
Shannan Lerch: This should be the end of the match right here! Clap Trap coming right up!
Cairo locks Ragnal in the Clap Trap and screams like a madman. Ragnal struggles to escape, Cairo leans back and pulls even harder on Ragnal's arm. Sasha yells at her man to hang on and not give up. The crowd cheers Ragnal's efforts to escape, Cairo screams at Ragnal to tap. Ragnal fights off the urge to tap and inches his way toward the ropes. Cairo cranks back in the hold like a Backlund possessed, working at a fevered rate to get the tapout. Finally, Ragnal reaches out...and grabs the ropes!
Zach Davis: Ragnal breaks the Clap Trap! I don't believe it! An unbelievable show of tenacity by Mike Ragnal!
Shannan Lerch: Give the man credit, he would not surrender. Cairo looks like he's almost beside himself in disbelief.
Cairo reluctantly breaks the hold and jumps to his feet. He stares out at the crowd with a shocked expression on his face, the crowd cheering Ragnal's courageous display. Cairo stomps away at Ragnal. Cairo whips Ragnal into the ropes, Ragnal goes for a flying cross body, Cairo catches Ragnal. Cairo slings Ragnal onto his shoulders in position for the Loco Vuelo, Ragnal slips out behind Cairo. Cairo turns around, Ragnal kicks Cairo in the midsection. Ragnal grabs Cairo and goes for the Ragnalrok...and Cairo escapes! Cairo hits Ragnal with the Security Breach! Cairo makes the cover and hooks the leg.
Zach Davis: One...two...three! Cairo wins the match and moves onto Payback to wrestle for the WCF Television Title! What a win for Bobby Cairo!
Shannan Lerch: Ragnal put up a great fight, but Cairo moves onto the tournament finals. This match was every bit as good as advertised, Zach.
"11 Dreams" plays on the soundsystem. The crowd boos as Cairo celebrates in the center of the ring. Sasha checks on her man and helps him to his feet.
Television Title Tournament Match
Lawnmower Jones vs Biohazard
"Breakdown" by Biohazard plays and Biohazard comes out and walks to the ring as yellow and purple lights flash.
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.
Zach Davis: The stakes have risen to an unprecedented level. Tonight is the night that either Biohazard or Lawnmower Jones will punch their ticket to Payback for a shot at the WCF Television Title.
Shannan Lerch: This is true, Zachary. Only one man can vanquish and advance. Who will survive in this single elimination tournament? Will it be the high flying masked superstar from Mexico or the drunk Scotsman with a fetish for lawnmowers?.
The bell rings to signal the start of this clash of titans. The fans are standing and chanting Jones' name. Jones is so amped up that he grabs the ropes and repeatedly thrusts back and forth like a man possessed. Biohazard is focused. I mean he's wearing a mask so we can't be completely sure, but it seems that he's focused on Jones. Jones finally turns his attention to Biohazard and lets out a loud bellow that resembles some sort of beached leviathan or perhaps a wounded water buffalo. Biohazard simply stands there with his eyes locked onto Jones. Or he could be standing there with his eyes closed. Who the hell knows? As I said, the man is wearing a mask. Jones makes his move and tries to tackle Biohazard, but Biohazard leapfrogs right over him. Jones is confused, he's wondering where Biohazard went. Jones turns around and Biohazard greets him with a flying headscissors takedown. Jones quickly jumps to his feet only to be dropped courtesy of a Biohazard arm drag. Biohazard does an abbreviated Mexican hat dance and then stealthy leaps to the top rope. Jones is up and Biohazard leaps about 20 feet into the air before coming down with a corkscrew moonsault. Jones is plowed into the mat.
Zach Davis: Biohazard is flying all over the place like some sort of crazy flying airplane. People like that make me very nervous.
Shannan Lerch: I've been told that plants also make you very nervous, Zach.
Zach Davis: That is correct, Shannan. I believe plants to be talking about me and conspiring against me. This would make any sane human being just a tad bit nervous, wouldn't you say?
Biohazard waits for Jones to get up and then hits a backflip kick that catches Jones right in the face. Jones is staggered, but he remains standing. Biohazard climbs outside to the ring apron and springboards himself off the top rope, but Jones catches him. Jones lifts Biohazard high above his head and presses him a couple of times as the crowd roars it approval. Jones throws Biohazard into the air and Biohazard crashes to the mat like a pile of bricks off the side of the Titanic.
Zach Davis: Jones is feeding off of the energy from this crowd. He picked Biohazard up like he was nothing but a pile of trash or a leafbag or some such and just tossed him throw the air like it was seagull shit.
Shannan Lerch: How dare you? Biohazard is a human being just like any of us. He has feelings and emotions and he feels pain dammit!
Zach Davis: Shut up, you dumb broad. I'll take you outside and make short work of you under a park bench if I have to tell you again.
Jones grabs hold of Biohazard and throws him backfirst into the turnbuckles. Jones unleashes a combination of punches to Biohazard's gut. Biohazard doubles over in pain and drops to one knee. Jones gets a running head start and absolutely destroys Biohazard with a Yakuza kick to the face. Biohazard is sprawled out on the mat. Jones bounces off the ropes and hits a big splash on his fallen opponent. Jones makes the cover and hooks the leg. Biohazard kicks out after two.
Zach Davis: Jones is firing on all cylinders. He reminds me of that one Filipino slap fighting dude who whooped everybody's ass and then he ate a big cheeseburger and told ethnic jokes.
Shannan Lerch: I remember that guy. What was his name? Kiji? Soshi?
Zach Davis: I believe that his name was Alec Baldwin.
Shannan Lerch: Ah, that's right.
Both men are back up, Jones hooks Biohazard and hoists him up with one arm into a vertical suplex position. Jones holds Biohazard in the air for about 30 seconds before dropping him to the mat with a suplex. The crowd applauds Jones' impressive feat of strength. Biohazard grasps his back and his head as he writhes around on the mat. Jones attempts a whip into the ropes, but Biohazard reverses it. Biohazard puts his head down for a backbody drop, but Jones counters with a facebreaker knee smash.
Zach Davis: Biohazard got his nosebone popped right out through his brain that time.
Shannan Lerch: Sometimes I wonder about things.
Zach Davis: Such as?
Shannan Lerch: Marriage, kids...basically, having a family.
Zach Davis: Oh, brother.
Jones grabs Biohazard and goes for a DDT, but Biohazard counters with a low blow. Jones grabs his balls and drops to his knees. Biohazard seizes the opening and damn near decapitates Jones with a crescent kick to the back of the head. Biohazard taunts the fans with Spanish curse words and pats himself on the back for a job well done. Biohazard climbs to the top rope and waits for Jones. Jones gets up and Biohazard hits a sunset flip into a pinning combination, buts Jones rolls through...then Biohazard rolls through. He powers up and hits Jones with a sitout powerbomb. Biohazard uses his legs to trap Jones' shoulders on the mat.
Zach Davis: One...two...no Jones kicked out! Biohazard hit the powerbomb out of nowhere and he nearly got the pin! What an incredible move!
Shannan Lerch: Biohazard is pulling all the tricks out of his bag tonight, Zach. He wants that title shot so bad he can taste it...along with the chicken quesadilla he had for lunch.
Biohazard unravels some of the tape from around his wrist and uses it to choke Jones out on the mat. The referee warns Biohazard against such activities and begins the mandatory five-count. Biohazard breaks the hold after four and stomps away at Jones. Biohazard whips Jones hard into the corner. Biohazard jogs in place for a moment before executing a beautifully majestic handspring back elbow that catches Jones right in his noggin. Jones crumples to the mat like so much loose change. Biohazard scales the turnbuckles and spits his green ooze high into the air before crashing down upon Jones with a shooting star legdrop. Biohazard covers Jones and hooks the leg. Jones barely kicks out after two.
Zach Davis: Biohazard is trying to wear Jones down and it appears to be working. I have to give credit where it's due, Shannan. Biohazard came in here with a gameplan and he's executing that gameplan with a great deal of success.
Shannan Lerch: Biohazard is a rising star in this company and he's showing you why, Zach. This guy isn't just some generic spot machine, he can methodically pick you apart and it looks like Lawnmower Jones is moments away from crawling back to Ballatar with his tail between his legs. Hahahahahahahaha.
Biohazard ties Jones up in the tree of woe, then takes a moment to make fun of Jones' genitalia in front of all the sexy ladies. Biohazard moves to the opposite corner, gets a running start and hits a hesitation dropkick on Jones in the corner. Biohazard's boot inadvertently catches Jones in the mouth and blood immediately gushes out. The referee checks on Jones, but Jones pushes him away. Biohazard mercilessly moves in for the kill. He scoops Jones up and hits a cradle piledriver in the middle of the ring. Biohazard once again leaps to the top turnbuckle. This time Biohazard goes for a corkscrew 450° splash, but Jones rolls out of the way. Biohazard's body impacts with the canvas in such a way as to be injured and both men are down and in pain.
Zach Davis: Oh noes! Biohazard and Jones are both down and we still don't have a winner in this match!
Shannan Lerch: God, times like this make me wish that we had a 24/7 rule in WCF. I could go down there right now and pin either one of these guys. Then I would ever so sweetly move onto Payback and challenge for the Television Title. Wouldn't that be awesome?
Both men slowly rise to their feet. Biohazard goes for a spinning heel kick, but Jones catches him. Jones slings Biohazard over his shoulder and plants him with a Dominator. Jones isn't finished, he shouts some Gaelic somesuch at Biohazard before picking him up and drilling him with a fisherman’s suplex. Jones whips Biohazard into the corner. Biohazard uses his impressive agility to leap onto the turnbuckles. Biohazard goes for a double springboard moonsault, Jones catches Biohazard and hits him with a modified Rev the Engine. Jones signals for the Jonesmission and the crowd goes nuts.
Zach Davis: Jonesmission! Here it comes! Jones is about to put this match on ice!
Shannan Lerch: No! You've got to fight him off, Biohazard! Do it for mommy!
Suddenly a chorus of boos comes up from the back. Bobby Cairo is charging down the entrance ramp with a metal folding chair in hand. Jones is still focused on Biohazard as Cairo slides into the ring.
Zach Davis: What the hell is Cairo doing here? He's not scheduled to participate in this match!
Shannan Lerch: I think that Mr. Cairo has some unfinished business with Mr. Jones.
Jones finally turns around and walks right into a chair shot from Cairo. Jones staggers and drops to one knee as the referee signals for the bell. Cairo lands another stiff chair shot and Jones finally falls to the mat. Cairo stomps away at Jones as fans pelt the ring with garbage.
Zach Davis: Jones wins the match as a result of disqualification, but this is a pathetic and cowardly assault by Bobby Cairo! What a nerve this man has! Get the hell out of here, Cairo!
Shannan Lerch: Take it easy, Zach. Jones has nobody to blame but himself. He made the mistake of turning his back on Cairo and now he's paying the price.
Zach Davis: Cairo wasn't even involved in the match!
Shannan Lerch: Fair is fair, Zach.
Cairo throttles Jones with a Security Breach right onto the chair. Jones' body spasms on the mat as Cairo raises his arms in celebration. The crowd voices their displeasure, a wicked smile comes across Cairo's face. Cairo checks on his tag partner Biohazard and helps the masked man to his feet. Cairo and Biohazard take turns kicking Jones and then they finish him off with the Goodbye Shopkeep.
Zach Davis: Bobby Cairo will have hell to pay for this, Shannan. Cairo has taken pleasure in making Jones' life a living nightmare, but this can't continue. Cairo has to answer for his crimes.
Shannan Lerch: Are you crying, Zach? There's no crying in wrestling!
Cairo and Biohazard stand victorious in the middle of the ring. The medical staff tends to Jones as he lies unconscious on the mat with blood flowing from his forehead.
The screen suddenly fades to black, all the millions at home watching are probably confused, changing channels, turning the television on, and off.
Zach Davis: It looks as if our programming is having technical difficulties, hang with us folks.
Suddenly the screen comes back to life, footage of a younger Seth Lerch, and a younger Logan begins to play.
Shannan Lerch: It looks like a video package for Seth Lerch versus Logan at Payback! Anything with my brother in it owns.
The footage rolls.
Seth Lerch: These men OWN YOU, Logan. You know how I said earlier, that at Blast, that chairshot was accidental? I lied. That was on purpous.. From day one, I lured you in to this stable, JUST TO SCREW YOU OVER! I've never liked you.. in fact, I hate you, Logan.
The crowd boos loudly at Lerch, who smiles, and takes all the hatred in..
Seth Lerch: Get this maggot out of MY ring.
Junkyard Justice and Cyrus throw Logan out of the ring, and Lerch laughs. Logan is still unconscious.
Zach Davis: I remember that.
Shannan Lerch: I guess my brother was kind of mean back then.
Zach Davis: Was? He still is, that man is a snake.
Logan sneakily grabs a pipe shaped thing of glass out from under the ring. Seth Lerch reaches his hand out trying to grab Logan, but Logan turns around and bust the pipe of glass over Seth's right leg. The glass shatters, and trickles a blood begin flowing down Seth's leg. Seth reaches down grabbing his leg, Logan gets a chair of glass from under the ring and holds it up, Seth jumps down and base ball slides under the ropes, the base ball slide breaks the glass into Logan's face. Pieces of tiny glass sling into Logan's cheeks and forehead, as he falls back to the mat holding his bloody wounds.
Zach Davis: Highlights from their glass match in 2004, man.. it was bloody.
Shannan Lerch: These guys are crazy to be doing this again, this match can scar you for life.
Logan reaches under the ring, and grabs another glass chair, Logan slips Seth's injured right leg folded inside the glass chair. Seth Lerch is too dazed from the Impact Style to know what's happening, Logan climbs up the apron, and jumps down with both feet out which shatters the glass over Seth's already bloody injured leg. The crowd begins chanting holy shit, as Logan picks Seth's legs up and whips him into a Loganshooter. Logan releases though, due to the tiny pieces of glass sticking out of Seth's leg that slice Logan's arm. Logan clinches his arm, which begins slowly bleeding
Zach Davis: Violent match indeed, I'm sure this is what we will expect at Payback this month.
In a sudden bolt of energy, and maybe last bolt of energy.. Seth Lerch hops off the sheet of glass and runs up the turnbuckle like a cat, he grabs Logan and gives him a superplex off the turnbuckle smashing them both through the sheet of glass! The crowd stand up, in awe.
Zach Davis: Seth better hope he can still run like that in a few weeks.
Shannan Lerch: You bet your ass he can.
Seth Lerch and Logan lay in one spot, as the camera zooms in on their backs where you can spot tiny pieces of glass, shinning with their red blood soaking the glass. After a few minutes, and a lot of buzzing from the crowd Seth Lerch finally makes a movement, slowly crawling to his feet with pieces of red bloody glass sticking out of him on almost every inch of his body. We see Logan's eyes glaze open, and one of them seems to be shut. Logan stands to his feet, with just as much glass sticking in him, and his face and hair soaked in blood. Logan's left eye is closed shut, with blood trickling down it. Seth Lerch and Logan turn around, and they spot each other. They slowly bleed across the ring, running at each other, with a major double close line. They both fall down next to each other, and once they hit the ring they roll around punching each other, both with knuckles of glass. Eventually they roll from the ring, and make it to their feet.. leaving tiny puddles of blood wherever they brawl. They exchange punches all the way to the announce table, giving the announcers a bloody up close sight of this. Logan ducks a close line, and sends a bloody stiff elbow to the side of Seth's head. Seth leans over the announcer table, holding his head as Logan grabs another pipe of glass. Logan swings the pipe of glass at Seth, but Seth dodges the attempt.. and the pipe of glass shatters over the head of Luscious Jackson whom falls out of his chair and lays out holding a hand over his head.
Zach Davis: I was SO happy when Luscious Jackson got hit in the head with that glass billy club.
Shannan Lerch: Anything to shut him up.
Loganshooter! Seth Lerch screams in pain, his face pushed into the mat against glass as blood trickles down his forehead and cheeks. Logan gathers up the energy just to keep the hold on, as Logan screams out too with blood running down his face and dripping down his teeth.
Shannan Lerch: A classic.
Seth Lerch and Logan exchange slow, bloody, right hands. With each connect of a fist, we can see blood spill out.. adding more of a puddle to the ring. Logan irish whips Seth towards the set up sheet of glass, but Seth stops right in front of it. Seth turns around and Logan charges at him full speed with a spear, Logan connects, and Seth, and Logan go crashing through the sheet of glass which shatters everywhere. They both archly fall back, laying in piles of broken glass and stained blood.
Zach Davis: What a career risking move that was, I feel like I'm calling this match all over again.
Seth Lerch and Logan both begin slowly climbing to their feet, grabbing the ropes. They stumble around, dizzy, from the loss of blood as Logan swings a right hand at Seth. Lerch takes it, and gives Logan one right back. They begin exchanging bloody right tired hands, and Logan falls to his knees, then punches Seth in his stomach making him fall to his knees in front of Logan too. They stand up on their knees, punching each other, bloody and tired as hell. After a few moments, they both fall back, and just lay there. EMT's rush out to the ring, and check on them.
Kyle Steel: Are they even okay?
After a few moments, Seth Lerch and Logan get taken away both onstretchers.
Luscious Jackson: I guess this match is a no contest.
Shannan Lerch: That had to be the final chapter to the four year rivalry of Seth Lerch and Logan. The Wrestler versus The Authority is final over.. it has to be.
Kyle Steel: Or is it..?
Zach Davis: Kyle Steel asked that question three years ago, and now we're here to answer it.. it isn't.
"The Struggle Within" by Metallica blasts over the speakers as the crowd stand to their feet cheering. Logan makes his way from behind the black curtain to the top of the ramp wearing a black "Seth Lerch = Boudle" shirt, blue jeans, and a microphone in hand.
Logan: Cut the music.
Metallica stops playing.
Logan: I'd like to know which one of them boudles in the back took the time to put that video together, are they trying to remind Seth Lerch how brutal this match is going be? Is his little staff buddies back there trying to talk him out of it? I don't care if they played a video of Davey Boone having sex with a donkey, there is nothing..
The crowd cheers as Logan looks deep into the camera.
Logan: Nothing, that is going to get you out of this match Seth, you've sealed your fate. Now to the real reason that I've actually came out here tonight. Madd Dogg.
Logan snaps his fingers into the microphone. Madd Dogg comes out from the back meeting Logan on top of the stage, behind him follows "Sandy".
Logan: If any of you guys paid attention to anything I've said, or done this week then you already know who this is. But just for you select boudles that have hearing loss out there, I'll explain everything again. Turn on the subtitles, and listen up.
Logan walks over to Sandy, looking her up, and down as she happens to wearing her usual trashy torn gothic clothes.
Logan: This is the answer to Madd Dogg. I believe that this woman is going to change him back to her old ways with special love.
She shrugs, slipping on his head phones. Logan stares at her.
Logan: Hey boudle, this is Sunday Slam.
Sandy sighs taking the head phones back off.
Logan: Anyway, I'm sure everyone would love to see the old Madd Dogg back in action, back to his old self.
Zach Davis: I sure would, I'm tired of seeing Logan boss him aro--
Logan: SHUT UP!
The crowd cheers for Logan's interruption of Zach Davis.
Logan: Too be honest, I'M tired of this new Madd Dogg. It's fun, yes, but this is wasn't the fans want. They want back the old Madd Dogg that invented that stupid crazy match I've got to wrestle in at Payback. But yeah, I believe this woman is the key to Madd Dogg. Her name happens to also be..
Logan turns to the fans whom have already picked up on the joke Logan has been playing by watching his promos throughout the week.
Logan puts the microphone in the air for the crowd who all yell..
Shannan Lerch: Oh lord.
Logan smiles a bit as Sandy just simply shrugs.
Logan: That's the last time, I promise. I won't do it again.. ever. Hell, you don't care anyway do you.. Sandy?
Sandy shakes her head no.
Logan: But no, let's get over all the fun, and games.. because tonight I'm facing that Davey Boone boudle one on one. You know, Boone might call this match legendary, he might call it a classic, he might even call it a epic bout between two icons. But what it's going be, is the biggest legendary classic epic beating he's ever received in his life!
The crowd cheer, and start a "Logan" chant.
Zach Davis: Logan must be pretty confident about his match tonight.
Logan: Well, that about wraps it up.
Logan goes to turn around, and walk to the back but soon stops turning around to the crowd with a smile on his face.
Logan: Everyone say goodbye to.. Sandy.
Logan laughs as the three leave the stage.
Tag Titles Match
Danny Vice/Thunder vs Team Xtreme
Zach Davis: It is now time for the tag team title match.
Shannan Lerch: I can't wait! This should be intresting. You have two guys who absoutly hate each other against the Tag Team champions.
Zach Davis: Indeed. First up are the challangers.
"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.
Shannan Lerch: There is one half of the men that is facing the tag team champs!
Zach Davis: But he looks a bit tentitive. I can't say I blame him thou, as he is teaming with the man that he will face at Payback.
Shannan Lerch: That match itslef should be intresting.
The lights go out in the arena as the crowd begins to emit electricity from their anticipation. The opening notes of "Map of the Problematique" by Muse hits the speakers to a huge ovation from the crowd. The lights flash several times before coming on full showing Danny "The Vagrant" Vice and his brother Jimmy standing a top the ramp. Danny raises his arms to his sides, the crowd half boos and half cheers. He rushes to the ring and slides in before climbing the turnbuckle and posing with both arms over his head. Two huge "V" pyros explode in the ring before Danny jumps down in preparation for his match.
Zach Davis: The crowd's reaction to Danny Vice was strange. Usually it is a deafining cheer for Danny but tonight it is different.
Shannan Lerch: Maybe it is the fact that he and Thunder are facing the tag team champs.
All the pyro smoke clears as Vice and Thunder stand in the middle of the ring staring each other down and talking smack to each other.
Zach Davis: The champs are set to come out next...
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 then head to there respective corner and wait for their opponents.
Shannan Lerch: But who is that with them?
The camera pans to the ramp as a man in a suit is seen following them. The man in the suit makes his way to announcers table and sits down.
Zach Davis: Who in the blue hell are yo...
Man in suit: Hello everyone and welcome to the inagural commentating by me, Jim Dolce! I am Team Xtreme's official annoncer, because no one ever does them justice.
Shannan Lerch: Wait a minute, do you have the power to do this?
Jim Dolce: Oh you damn well know I do! I am here to show you two how you call a Team Xtreme match!
Zach Davis: Well okay folks, I guess we are now joined by Team Xtreme's personal announcer.
The two teams in the meanwhile have settled into there respective corners as Thunder starts the match for his team and TXO starts for the champs Team Xtreme.
The bell rings and Thunder and The Xtreme One lock up. Thunder gets the Xtreme One in a headlock. He is wrenching it in, as TXO gets the go behind and lifts him up for a back drop. Both men are up fairly quick as TXO runs at Thunder with a clothsline, Thunder ducks, TXO hits the ropes and Thunder catches him with a short armed clothsline of his own. TXO is down. Thunder makes the quick pin attempt...
TXO kicks out at 1.
Jim Dolce: You are going to have to do more to the Xtreme One then that to keep him down!
Zach Davis: Thats true, but hit never hurts to go for a quick cover attempt.
Thunder complains to the ref about a slow count, allowing TXO to get over to his corner and get the tag.
Shannan Lerch: Quick tag to the Violent One!
Jim Dolce: Action is about to pick up!
The Violent One enters the ring quickly and runs right at Thunder catching him the back of the head with with a flying leg lariat. Thunder hits the ground with a thud. He grabs at the back of his neck as TVO walks over and stands him up. TVO whips Thunder into his corner, and Danny "The Vagrant" Vice tags himself in. Thunder isnt pleased and shoots a glare at Vice.
Zach Davis: Oh man this one night alliance could explode at any minute!
Shannan Lerch: You could cut this tension with a knife!
Jim Dolce: Very original Shannan...
Shannan Lerch: Thank you!
The Violent One and Vice lock up. TVO gets the advantage and shoots Vice into the ropes. He hits a huge dropkick. Vice is down and TVO holds his arms up as the fans chant TVO TVO TVO!!! Vice is back up, TVO is still showboating to the crowd. Vice catches TVO with a neck breaker.
Jim Dolce: An amazing neck breaker by Vice, still has TVO down.
Vice hits a sumersault flip onto TVO and goes for the cover!
TVO kicks out at 2 and a half as Vice looks at the ref and just shakes his head in disbelieve. He goes over to TVO and trys to grab him, but TVO counters with a schoolboy and rolls him up
No! Vice kicks out at 2 and a half. The crowd is split. Half chanting TVO the other chanting VIce.
Jim Dolce: Two quick pin attemtps leave both men a half a count away!
Shannan Lerch: This is more fast paced than I had expected.
TVO and Vice are both back up and exchanging left hands. Vice ducks a bunch and catches TVO with a huge chop, knocking him down to the mat. Vice picks TVO up, but TVO reverses and catches a huge spike DDT on Vice as both men lay in the middle of the ring.
Zach Davis: Who is going to capatilize on this? Will it be the champs or the challangers?
Jim Dolce: Both men are starting to get to there feet.
Vice get to his feet only to be met with a stiff right hook to the jaw. After throwing the punch TVO falls into his corner taging in The Xtreme One. Vice is still looking staggered as TXO runs at him and gets the go behind and begins pounding on the neck and back area of Vice. He sinches him up and hits one german suplex.

TXO lifts Vice back up and hits a second german suplex.
Zach Davis: There's two!
TXO, still holding on lifts him up and hits the third german suplex, this time releasing his grip, and sends VIce landing on his neck.
Shannan Lerch: Wow! Vice landed very ackward on his neck that time and is writhing in pain.
TXO sees this and picks Vive up, whipping him right into the corner, of he and Thunder. He follows him in with a huge splash. TXO grabs the limp arm of VIce and tags Thunder with it. Thunder looks a little shocked but enters the ring. TXO and Thunder stare each other down before locking up. This time TXO gets the upper hand and locks in an arm ringer. He drags Thunder to his corner and tags in TVO. TVO comes in and kicks the arm of Thunder. As Thunder is shaking it off, TVO runs right at him but, Thunder catches him with a huge t-bone suplex.

Zach Davis: Thunder isnt known as a suplex artist for nothing!
Thunder is back up, still shaking his arm trying to get the muscels loose and walks over to the TVO's legs. He grabs both legs and locks in a texas clover leaf right in the middle of the ring.
Shannan Lerch: TVO has no where to go, he is going to have to tap out!
Jim Dolce: Do not ever under estimate the guts and determination of TVO... I will go and bet that he will get out of this with his own power.
TVO is screaming in pain. The ref asks if he wants to give it up. TVO looks at the ref and gives him the bird. The fans see this and go in a frennzy they begin to chant TVO, TVO, TVO. Thunder looks at the crowd in shock and sinches it in a little tighter. TVO begins to stir as he pushes himself up in a pushup position. He is writhing in pain but has the leg strength to kick out of Thunders grasp.
Zach Davis: Good lord did you see the strength of TVO's legs there I have never seen that before!
Jim Dolce: Told ya! Better believe you all owe me!
Thunder is in amazment as he he gets up in shock. He walks over back over to the body of TVO but is caught in a drop toe hold. TVO is now up and on the attack. He begins to stomp the back and legs of Thunder. The crowd is cheering as they see, Thunder getting a mudhole stomping by TVO. TVO lifts up thunder and hits a cradel piledriver.
Jim Dolce: That was an awesome cradel piledriver! Did you see the angle of Thunder's neck as he was driven into the mat?
Shannan Lerch: That had to hurt. Your right there Jim, he did land at a weird angle on his neck.
TVO is up and tags in TXO. TXO immeaditly goes to work on the neck of Thunder. He gets him in a headlock on the ground wrenching on the neck and lower back area. All the while making sure to knee him the face.
Zach Davis: Those are punishing knees TXO is giving to Thunder.

Danny Vice gets the blind tag and hops over the top rope and hits TXO with a stiff elbow to the chops.

Davey Boone vs Logan
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. On the way, Logan might reach out every now, and then slapping a fans hand or two.. 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 until his music cuts.
Zach Davis: This is a match up many people have come to see and have wanted to see for some time now. Two of WCF’s top legends in one ring facing off one on one!
Shannan Lerch: My brother wants to see Logan get destroyed in this match, so Boone if you are smart then you had better do what your told!
“Memory Remains” by Metallica hits the PA as Davey Boone’s BACK to his old theme music! Davey Boone steps through the curtain wearing a Pittsburgh Penguins jersey with Crosby on the back of it as he makes his way down to the ring stopping to give the fans a hand shake as he gets down to the ramp pyros begin shooting off in every direction as the crowd is going crazy! Boone points up at Logan and is saying a few words to him as he climbs up on the apron and steps into the ring and dances around a little bit. The referee is telling them to hold their own places before he starts the match. The music finally dies down as the crowd is in an uproar! The roof has blown off of the place as Logan and Boone both start looking around out into the crowd. Both men are smiling as they look at the crowd who is DEFINITELY mixed on who they are cheering for. You can hear “Let’s Go Boone” followed by “Let’s Go Lo-gan” right after that as both men just pause briefly to soak in what is happening. The smoke from all the pryo technics clears out as the referee calls for the bell and the 2 men continue to pace around the ring for a minute as the crowd is still in a frenzy! They finally lock up as the power struggle begins as neither opponent is getting an upper hand as Boone is doing a very solid job of holding off the weight advantage by Logan. Finally the lock up is broken as the crowd gets even louder as Logan shakes his head that he’s impressed with Boone’s strength.
Zach Davis: This match is a stale mate! You can just feel the electricity in the air and it is almost like we are at a main event at One all over again! It is quite an amazing feeling and this could be the greatest Slam in the history of the WCF!
Shannan Lerch: I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I might have to agree with you on that one! Especially if Boone pulls this off and destroys Logan!
Both men pace around again before finally locking up again but this time Logan turns it into a side head lock and starts to laugh. Boone lifts Logan up some causing him to let go of the hold as Boone comes from behind with a drop toe hold as he climbs up the back of Logan and now has him in a side headlock on the mat! Boone is laughing some now as Logan flips over out of it and rolls out of the way as both men stand up and just stare at each other again! Both men acknowledge the other in respect as the crowd is going crazy! They pace around each other again and finally lock up as Logan now comes from behind Boone and has him in a rear waist lock, Boone reverses the waist lock into a waist lock of his own as Logan doesn’t hesitate and continues on around with one of his own now as Boone reaches through his legs and grabs the leg of Logan and causes him to fall flat on his back releasing the hold as Boone steps back and Logan pops to his feet again! Each man countering the other over and over and over again as both are showing their veteran ring ability. Logan looks to be a bit frustrated now as Boone is smiling, they both lock up again as now Logan nails Boone with a huge knee lift in the gut and the crowd is in shock to see Logan finally coming to blows against Boone!
Zach Davis: Logan tried the technical way, but Boone is just too sound of a wrestler to be beaten that way!
Shannan Lerch: I don’t think it is that, I think Boone has done his homework on Logan.
Logan comes off the ropes and nails Boone with a high knee lift and makes a quick cover!
1.... KICK OUT BY BOONE!
Zach Davis: Boone ain't gonna stay down easy. He's really evolved as a competitor since he arrived here.
Both men are back up as Logan swings himself into the ropes as Boone catches him with an arm drag take over as Logan pops back up Boone catches him with another arm drag take over and Logan comes up a third time and Boone AGAIN with an arm drag take over before both men stop again and look at each other. This time both men are frustrated! They stare at each other as they begin pacing around the ring again as they go to lock up Boone slams a huge forearm on the back of Logan causing him to drop down and throw back an elbow of his own. Boone is leaned over holding his gut as Logan runs at him and nails him with a huge knee lift causing Boone to fall to the mat! Logan mounts Boone and starts nailing him with right hands as the referee is counting and then pulls him off of Boone as Logan stops swinging. Boone reaches out for the ropes but he's not even close as Logan stomps on the side of his head! Boone is crawling now as Logan stomps again and then comes off the ropes and drops an elbow and is up quickly and does it again with an elbow as Boone rolls out of the ring. He's trying to buy some time as Logan follows him out as the referee is calling him back, Logan runs at Boone as he ducks and Logan hits the pole shoulder first. Logan turns around and Boone nails him with a super kick! Logan falls out as Boone slowly rolls back into the ring to break the 10 count. Boone climbs to his feet and leans on the ropes to hold him up. The referee is up to 5 as Logan grabs a hold of the apron and pulls himself up. He slowly rolls into the ring just in time to break the count. Boone walks over and picks up Logan but Logan rolls him up in a small package!
KICK OUT BY BOONE!
Shannan Lerch: What a matchup.
Boone pops up and so does Logan as Boone clotheslines him down! Boone takes his time capitalizing on what has happened and begins to climb to the top rope taking a high risk shot. Logan gets back to his feet and walks over to Boone and climbs up to the top with him as they exchange fists. Logan finally gets the upper hand as he continues on up to the very top as he hooks Boone.....SUPER PLEX OFF THE TOP ROPE!! BOTH MEN ARE OUT IN THE RING! The referee begins the 10 count for both competitors.
Zach Davis: HOLY COW! I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS! They are giving everything they have to win this match!
The referee is up to 5 and still no life from either guys. The crowd is going crazy back and forth cheering for Logan and Boone as the referee is up to 8 as Logan is up to his feet as well as Boone! They both meet each other with right hands a piece as both men stagger back after each strike of the other! Boone blocks a swing by Logan and comes back with another one and then begins to get quicker as he swings Logan into the ropes and ducks down for a back body drop as Logan kicks Boone in the chest and comes off the side ropes and nails Boone with a neck breaker! Both men are down again! Logan rolls over and drapes an arm across Boone as the referee counts again!
3..BOONE BARELY KICKS OUT IN TIME! Seth Lerch is now seen making his confident strut to the ring and doesn't look too pleased. Logan gets up and looks towards him as Seth begins yelling stuff at him as the referee is telling Seth to leave ringside. Boone is now back to his feet and attacks Logan from behind and places Logan's head between his knees and signals to the crowd and then to Seth Lerch as Seth is smiling. BOONE'S DAY DEVICE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! Boone stands up and looks towards Seth as Seth slides in a chair to Boone and tells him to bash him in the head. Boone picks up the chair as the referee is begging him off and telling him not to do it. Lerch climbs up on the apron as the referee turns towards Seth Boone looks at Logan and then back at Lerch and then walks over and throws the chair outside of the ring as Lerch is in shock! Boone refuses to do his dirty work! Logan crawls back to his feet and comes up behind Boone and places him in the sleeper!!! THE CONNECTOR!!! Logan crawls out of the ring and begins chasing Lerch around the ring as the referee is trying to gain control of the match. Boone is lifeless in the ring as Logan is playing a game of cat and mouse with Lerch on the outside but still can't get to Lerch. Lerch is finally backed into a corner before Logan notices that the referee is up to an 8 count and sprints back into the ring. Logan is still turned towards Lerch and is pointing at him as Boone staggers back to his feet. Logan turns around and Boone reaches for Logan's legs...SHARP SHOOTER!!! BOONE HAS THE SHARP SHOOTER LOCKED ON! Lerch heads back up to the ramp and is clapping telling Boone to break his legs! Logan is shaking his head no to the referee asking him if he wants to give up, Logan is reaching for the ropes but Boone has the hold wrenched in tightly! Logan looks like he's going to tap out!
Shannan Lerch: HE'S GOING TO TAP OUT!! LOGAN IS GOING TO LOSE TO BOONE!!!
Kelly Fox is seen jogging down to the ring crying as she screams for her cousin Boone to stop as Lerch is confused at what is going on. Boone breaks the hold and is yelling at Kelly to leave as down comes Craven and he grabs Kelly on the arm as she tries to break free from him falling to the canvas. Adam Knite is seen busting through the curtain and attacks Craven from behind as they begin to brawl at the middle of the ramp and head towards the back as Boone is hesitant to follow them. Logan is back to his feet and as Boone turns back around he takes a kick to the gut as Logan hooks the arm and BRAINBUSTER TO BOONE! Logan looks around at the crowd and clamps on the LOGAN SHOOTER! Logan's version of the sharp shooter as the referee asks Boone if he gives up as Boone is shaking his head no Lerch is now back at ringside and looks Boone straight in the face and is screaming at him to not give up to fight out. Boone looks at him and then flips him off and begins tapping out!! BOONE TAPPED OUT LOGAN WINS THE MATCH!
Zach Davis: I DON'T BELIEVE IT!
Lerch is beside himself and begins signaling towards the back. The referee raises his arm in victory as Boone is out of it and is clutching his legs.
Shannan Lerch: I don't know who to cheer for here, but wow!
Team Xtreme comes out of the backstage area as they drop their tag titles at ringside and climb into the ring and start double teaming Logan! Team Xtreme picks Logan up as TVO places his head between his knees and TXO climbs up to the top rope in the corner. TXO grabs Logan's legs as he jumps off TVO comes down with a PILEDRIVER! While this is going on, Boone slid outside of the ring and grabbed the chair Lerch tried to hand him earlier. Boone is back in the ring and runs towards TVO and TXO swinging the chair as they clear the ring but the damage has been done! Logan is busted open and is lifeless in the ring as Boone is holding himself up Team Xtreme grab their belts and head back up the ramp and into the back. Lerch grabs a mic and begins to address Boone as he's also heading back up the ramp.
Seth Lerch: Boone, I asked you to do one simple thing and you refused to do it! I've decided who will team up with Adam Knite to take on you and Johnny Craven next week at Payback, because "payback" is exactly what I plan to get from you! TEAM XTREME will be FORCED to team up with Adam Knite to take on the team of Davey Boone and "Texas Red" Johnny Craven! Take that!
Lerch drops the mic as Logan is finally helped back to his feet and shakes loose the cob webs as he looks at Boone and they just stare at each other. Boone still has the chair in his hand and walks over to Logan and hands him the chair and turns his back on him pausing briefly. Logan has a confused look on his face and clutches his head dropping the chair as Boone looks back and limps back up the rampway and into the backstage area!
Zach Davis: WOW! Whew, ummm...that was intense. In all of my years here in the WCF, that had to be one of the greatest wrestling matches I've ever seen. Man oh man, 2 of the best in this business putting it all on the line and proving at the end that they did it for themselves and not for anybody else. What a match!
Shannan Lerch: And my brother put Boone in his place by booking the match for the pay per view making it a handicap match. Now he's just got to get Adam Knite and Team Xtreme on the same page and he'll take out 2 of the pains in his backside in the same night!
Cameras cut to the backstage area as security has broken up Knite and Craven as Knite is yelling.
Adam Knite: I'll do anything to get my hands around you Craven! I'll team up with anybody!! YOUR ASS IS MINE AS PAYBACK!! YOU AND BOONE BOTH!
The scene fades out.
World Title Match
Outcast vs Jack of Blades
Zach Davis: Main-event time.
Shannan Lerch: Outcast versus Blades. Pay-Per-View quality match free on television. This is how wrestling companies begin to lose money.
Zach Davis: But it's worth it to entertain these great WCF fans. Of course, this match will also be contested for the World title.
Shannan Lerch: Blades, who has just come off a damaging loss to Merc, may be the underdog in this match with him being placed in a Gauntlet-esque streak of facing very competent challengers.
Zach Davis: If I were more cynical in my approach to business, I'd say that Blades has garnered the ire of one or more of the 'suits' running this place.
''God of Thunder'' hits and Outcast walks out, accompanied by Rick Mad. 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 accompanied with Rick Mad tonight.
Zach Davis: Indeed. Merc and Steve Carr would be accompanying to them but they're doing a protest of absence in the face of Jack's actions.
Shannan Lerch: A protest of absence? That has to rival the self-immolation of Thich Quang Duc.
Zach Davis: Hey, it's not as bad as John Lennon's whole 'staying in bed' thing.
Shannan Lerch: Yeah but he had to sleep with Yoko Ono. It measures out.
'Forsaken' by David Draiman begins. The lights fluctuate into pattern. The entrance video recapping Jack's accomplishments in the ring also plays on the arena televisions. Everything is as it should be excluding Jack of Blades, who on his way to the ring, cuts out all the theatrics and performance. A red torrent of sparks billows from behind him with the pyrotechnicians presuming that Jack will taunt with it. He doesn't. He gives it a look of complete disdain before carrying on down past the ramp. The way he's holding his title belt, kind of like a child carting around his toy, suggests his current state of interest as it skims across the floor. Sliding into the ring, Blades charges at Outcast, subtracting his usual activity of posing from his entrance, with two stiff kicks to each side of the chest, which in turn, causes the bell to ring.
Zach Davis: Here we go.
Outcast stumbles backwards at the surprise attack allowing Blades to hit a quick palm to the gut and then a powerful Roaring Elbow. Outcast continues to sway with the impact only for him to be brought to his knees with a purposeful European Uppercut. Jack quickly pulls him to the mat and covers after an Edgecution DDT.
Outcast pulls himself out of it. Blades slaps the mat at his inability to get a quick victory and brings Outcast to a higher position.
Zach Davis: Jack going for a very early flurry and attempt at a pin here. Doesn't want to spend long in the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Outcast isn't one to lie down with little encouragement though.
With Outcast by his thighs, Blades drives a knee into his victim's mouth and quickly applies a Double Underhook. He then proceeds to flip Outcast over bending him over his knee. Another pinfall.
Shannan Lerch: Double Underhook Backbreaker!
Outcast's shoulder finds itself off the canvas and Blades once again lifts Outcast for another attempt at ending the match. Outcast's face is soon smashed against the canvas and his neck tangled around Jack's calf as Blades throws him down with an STO into a Koji Clutch. The crowd moves forward in a mass attempt to see if Outcast hand is going to request a submission. There is some struggling and it looks like Outcast's hand is going to bounce. Before the moment of tapping however, Outcast grabs a hold of Jack and flips the weight into a cover.
Blades falls from it and moves away from a reinvigorated Outcast. The NCW leader, driven by irritation at the submission manoeuvre, charges Blades grappling him down. Blades then finds himself lifted directly vertical with a Suplex. However, the moment of impact doesn't happen as Outcast, in a unrivalled display of strength, stalls the connection to the mat.
Zach Davis: Jack is dangling like a fish from a hook. Such strength from Outcast.
Outcast keeps it going.
Zach Davis: Words can't describe both the motivation and power we are seeing on display here.
Outcast keeps the crowd entertained by taunting them causing a barrage of insults and some empty drinks cups to fly towards him.
Shannan Lerch: Outcast has to be tiring soon. Or he has the innate control to deny physics.
At around a minute of allotted verticality, Jack finds himself dropped forcefully to the mat completing the Stalling Suplex. The lengthy legs of Outcast are soon draped over Blades' and pulling him into a Cradle situation.
Blades rolls with the Cradle into a reversal.
A fatigued Jack falls from the hold unable to keep it in place. Clutching his upper back, Blades complains about the pain inflicted on him before coming behind Outcast. He puts an arm around his shoulder and with a similar show of power as to what Outcast just did, lifts the heavier opponent over into a Back Suplex. Blades keeps the arm around the shoulder, however, and drags Outcast into the same position. However, his victim's legs flail and prevent Blades from finishing the attack.
Shannan Lerch: Outcast is just too big for continuous attack.
Outcast and Blades battle for advantage with the former looking to win. He kicks his legs making the move difficult to perform. Blades, realizing this, simply flips Outcast over his shoulder and catches him with a Cutter as he falls to the mat. The crowd applauds the quick thought as the pair fall down to the sweat-stained canvas. The referee begins a count with both competitors down only to be stopped a few seconds after as Blades finds his bearings. Looking at the grounded shape of Outcast, Blades climbs a nearby turnbuckle after giving the audience a look that hints at his battle plan.
Shannan Lerch: Look at that form. Are we going to see a Flying Headbutt?
Blades does a swan dive from the turnbuckle looking to hit Outcast. This does not happen though as Outcast, in a definitive example of athleticism, leaps from his supine stature and catches Blades in a chancery mid-air. The impressiveness is enhanced as Outcast twists both of their bodies down forcing the Champion into the ground at a devastating trajectory.
Zach Davis: Look at that! Super Neckbreaker from Outcast there. Outcast leapt up like an evangelical priest at a communal crisis.
Shannan Lerch: I think it's more common to say 'like a pimple on prom night.'
With both competitors again on the mat, the referee reinitiates the count. This time it is Outcast who breaks the count as he moves to his feet. History is repeated as Outcast gets the same idea as Blades and rarely for him, moves onto a turnbuckle. The crowd roars at the possibility of seeing the considerable frame of Outcast fly. They are disappointed though when they see Outcast fall to an unpleasant seated position on the metal turnbuckle as Blades quickly dropkicks the top rope.
Shannan Lerch: Desperation from Jack there.
Blades slowly regains his senses and moves to a standing position. Taking a few moments to remind himself of where he is, Blades finds interest at the grounded, periled Outcast. And with a momentary scowl, Blades pounds from the second rope to catch his opponent before turning in mid-air and driving Outcast to the mat.
Zach Davis: Super Springboard Rock Bottom!
Shannan Lerch: Must have got that from Dake Ken.
With Blades' chest moving up and down trying to restore some breath lost from exhaustion and Outcast suffering the results of being projected from the height that he found himself at, the referee brings another count as the match continues.
Zach Davis: Both men are stirring.
Shannan Lerch: Blades is up.
The count ends. Blades begins picking Outcast up, but Rick Mad is on the ropes. The ref goes to tell him to get down, and Outcast hits a low blow on Blades, who stumbles backwards into said ref. Rick takes this moment to punch the ref right in the back of the head, who goes down like a metaphor about something going down a lot.
Zach Davis: Ruh roh. Here we go. Shenanigans time.
But now Creeping Death is walking down the entryway, chair in hand.
Shannan Lerch: Shenanigans, indeed!
As soon as Mad is in the ring, Creeping Death has entered too. He clocks Mad right in the head with the chair, and Mad flies out of the ring. He then turns to Outcast, and BAM! Another chair shot!
Zach Davis: What is going on here?
Jack is now to his feet, and he and Creeping Death share a moment of eye contact, nodding at each other. They then slide out to go after Team NCW!
Shannan Lerch: Get 'em, Team NCW!
But no, Outcast and Rick quickly run up the entryway.
Zach Davis: I do believe this match has been thrown out.
Jack and Creeping Death stand outside the ring as Outcast and Rick go up it. Creeping Death has got a mic.
Creeping Death: Screw it. Payback. Here it is. Me and the World Champ, Jack of Blades here... us against you, Team NCW.
Outcast looks at Rick and they talk amongst themselves. Outcast magically has a mic of his own.
Outcast: Ergh.. well.. FINE. Fine, you've got it. Creeping Death, you don't deserve to even be recognize as an NCW alumni, and when I pin Jack of Blades at the PPV, I'll be sure to get another Title shot, and then the belt will be MINE.
Creeping Death: And to make this even more interesting, Outcast, you'll be teaming up with MERC, not Rick Mad.
Outcast: Sounds good to me, I know Merc wants to get his hands on you and beat you again, Blades. See you two at Payback.
Outcast's theme hits as he and Mad leave. The crowd cheers as Jack and Creeping Death shake hands and begin to leave as well.
Shannan Lerch: And there it is! Creeping Death and Jack of Blades vs Team NCW at Payback!
Zach Davis: Fans, we'll see you then!
