Sunday Slam Intro

The Darkest Nights by As I Lay Dying hits, and Slam is on the air! Pyro explodes and fires through the air and the fans cheer and scream. We go to our announcers, Zach and Shannan.

Zach Davis: Hello, fans, welcome to Sunday Slam! We're coming upon our 50th episode, and to celebrate we get new theme music. Hooray!

Shannan Lerch: And what a great night we have tonight. In our main event, Striker and Vice team up to face Epic and Creeping Death.

Zach Davis: Vice and Striker have tagged together before, but never as part of the same faction. Tonight, we can only assume they are on the same page.

Shannan Lerch: Of course, Epic and Creeping Death are both after Striker's World Title. And Vice is after CD's Hardcore Title as well. It is an interesting situation.

Zach Davis: Speaking of Titles, the Television Title is on the line. Mike Ragnal earned his shot at Bobby Cairo, once more, once and for all. Tonight is that match.

Shannan Lerch: And we'll have a match to determine who will face Ragnal or Cairo at Aftermath for that belt. It will either be Dave Holland, Jason Anderson, Lance Ryan or Johnny Craven. One of these four will step up.

Zach Davis: Speaking of contendership matches, the Tag Titles challengers will be decided in a match between Team NCW and newcomers, The Callaway Brothers.

Shannan Lerch: One half of the former Tag Champions, Jay Williams, is going one on one with former MCE star Dehart.

Zach Davis: And lastly, one half of the CURRENT Tag Champions, Rich Marciano, is facing Joe Everyman. Interesting.

Shannan Lerch: Lots of action tonight, let's get to it.

Index Three Segment

"Social Register Fanclub" by Boysetsfire hits the arena as the lights dim. A sharp blue light starts fanning around the arena, quickening its pace until the main guitars enter. All lights go off at this point for a few seconds until the chorus hits, when everything lights up and pyro explodes at the stage. Danny Vice and Mike Ragnal explode from under the stage through trapdoors and Skyler Striker jumps out from the central entrance. They all converge as they walk down the ramp and enter the ring, Ragnal and Vice going to the turnbuckle and Striker going to the opposite ropes to cheers from the crowd. They switch turnbuckles and rope and repeat, then meet in the middle as three separate blue rocket pyros explode from the ring.

Zach Davis: An explosive entrance from Index Three!

Shannan Lerch: It’s all about showing off, Zach. They have reason to be happy.

All three grab microphones from ringside and Striker steps forward, World Title around his waist.

Skyler Striker: First things first – Ragnal and I have a deal for you if you’re listening, Cairo.

Mike Ragnal: Definitely. Cairo, I’m proposing a trade for you – for our Television Title match tonight. A trade stipulation. If I win, I get the TV Title and Striker gets Jade back, because we know you’ve got her here tonight. If I lose…

Ragnal seems very hesitant to say his next sentence.

Mike Ragnal: If I lose, Cairo, you get Sasha.

Ragnal stands back and waits for Cairo to give an answer of some sort. “11 Dreams” hits the arena and Cairo walks out onstage, Jade held violently in his hands. The crowd boo insanely, some even throwing things at him.

Zach Davis: A dangerous man, that.

Shannan Lerch: But Striker overcame him. And he wants what’s his.

Bobby Cairo: You’re on, Ragnal. Striker, Ragnal, you’d better say goodbye to Sasha and Jade. This will be the last time that you see them before Cairo has his way. And away!

Cairo exits stage as quickly as he came and Striker nods to Ragnal, who is almost overcome with emotion at the possibility of giving up Sasha.

Skyler Striker: Well, Seth, I hope you’re satisfied. I went through hell and back and brought my World Title through the fire. And it’s still on my goddamn waist! Seth, man, you gotta send me harder competition.

The crowd cheer and chant STRIKER! STRIKER!

Skyler Striker: But – I do want to acknowledge one of the reasons I made it through. Not only did Index Three pull through for me, but Danny Vice stood by me. Danny, I apologize for ever doubting your loyalty. You are a true friend.

Striker shakes Vice’s hand and Ragnal grins, finally the tension seeming to dissolve.

Skyler Striker: So. Two things remain on my plate – Creeping Death and Epic. XIII, just under two weeks away. Nightmare Chamber. The biggest challenge of my life so far. The deadliest structure known to the WCF, alongside the Euthanasia Chamber and the Pyramid. And on top of that, I step into that match with none other than Creeping Death. The WCF Hardcore Champion. Rest assured, when I put my World Title on the line, I-

“Perfect Strangers” by Deep Purple rumbles through the arena and Epic hits the stage, mic in hand. The crowd give a mixed reaction, most seem to be booing in favour of cheering Striker. He walks down to the ring and steps inside, yet keeps his distance from Index Three.

Zach Davis: Not so sure that was a wise move on Epic’s behalf. Steeping into a ring filled with Index Three?

Shannan Lerch: This is Epic we’re talking about, Zach! His strength, his legacy – it’s-

Zach Davis: DON’T-

Shannan Lerch: EPIC! HAHA!

Zach Davis: Oh God.

Epic brings the mic to his mouth.

Epic: Oh, shut it. I’m not here for your applause – yet. Striker. I have a little problem with your defending that WCF Title against Creeping Death. You see, my contract for my match with you at Aftermath states that you cannot defend the title before then unless Seth Lerch explicitly states so. So it looks like you’ll have to keep your title shining for Aftermath when I take it off your hands, Striker.

The crowd boo at this news. Striker also seems to look slightly disappointed – that is, until “Master of Puppets” hits the arena. The crowd cheer as Seth appears onstage, looking professional as ever, and with mic in hand.

Seth Lerch: Epic! Great to see you back and fighting in the WCF. However, I have a spot of bad news for you.

Epic: Don’t you dare-

Seth Lerch: I need to inform you, Epic, that the WCF World Title WILL be on the line in the Nightmare Chamber at XIII. Creeping Death has proved himself well enough. I do, however, need CD out here right now.

“The Light That Blinds” hits and Creeping Death walks out onstage, mic in hand, Hardcore Championship around his waist. He stands next to Seth and looks him right in the eyes. Epic, Striker, Vice and Ragnal watch from the ring.

Creeping Death: What do you want, Seth? What do you need so desperately from me?

Seth Lerch: As usual, I’m just raising the stakes, CD. What I want to do is to add a stipulation to your little chamber of doom.

Creeping Death: Don’t degrade it, Lerch. It’s the Nightmare Chamber for a reason.

Seth Lerch: Whatever. CD, I want to make your Hardcore Title to be involved in some way. So, I propose that if you defeat Striker, you can take his World Title. If you do, it will be CD vs. Epic vs. Striker at Aftermath for the World Title. However, if Striker beats you, you will give the #1 Contendership to Danny Vice for Aftermath.

Vice grins in the ring, as does Epic, and Striker. CD thinks it over in his mind and nods in agreement.

Creeping Death: Done.

Creeping Death heads backstage after a look at Striker and Vice in the ring, as well as Epic glaring back. Lerch stays onstage, watching the ring.

Danny Vice: Now, I have been here for a pretty decent amount of time. Gotten my hands dirty quite a bit for the sake of this company, and proven myself to be worthy of some perks here and there. So I will make this short, simple, and sweet. I want a spot on XIII. And I want it to be hardcore.

The crowd cheers. Who doesn't love fresh blood?

Danny Vice: Johnny Craven, you hillbilly sonofabitch. You, me and old Creeps have had 2 triple threats and somehow I haven't ended up on the winning side yet. So since that self-promoting jerkoff is going to be busy getting his head bashed in by the Ace of Hearts, Skyler Striker, it looks like XIII is going to be just you and me. And to make things extra special for The Vagrant's XIII debut, let's make it a Tokyo Street Fight. Only way to be victorious is to render your opponent unconscious.

The crowd cheers again. Asphalt rocks.

Vice hands off the mic to Mike, who looks around the crowd as he speaks.

Mike Ragnal: Now, tonight, as I said before, I've got Bobby Cairo to take care of in a match that may just be the last time I ever wrestle for the Television Championship. And I know, a lot of you feel like I'm just turning this into some kind of an obsession, but the truth is, I'm not. If anything, there is a special reason...and a special someone...that this title is going to be dedicated to. Also...should I win, I have a special surprise in store for each and every one of you. But Striker...

He walks over to the WCF World Champion and places his hand on his shoulder.

Mike Ragnal: Striker, should I lose, and you never get to see Jade again...well, you've got every right to kick me out of the Index Three. It'd be justifiable if that happens.

Striker takes Mike's hands off of him, and just shakes no, mouthing, "Now we both know that none of that's gonna happen." Mike nods, smiling, and then turns attention to Epic.

Mike Ragnal: As for you...I wouldn't be writing off Striker so soon. Remember, IF he loses at XIII, your chances of losing the belt are decreased by a third. So you better get on those knees July 13th and pray to whatever higher being you live by that Sky is still World Champion.

Mike walks away, smirking.

Mike Ragnal: Of course, not like that'd help you win at Aftermath, am I right, guys?

The crowd begins to cheer the Master of Elemental Disaster on, as both Striker and Vice nod in agreement.

Mike Ragnal: So what do you say for that, Seth?

Lerch gives Epic a quick look and raises the mic once more.

Seth Lerch: And I’d be careful if I were you, Epic. Look behind you.

The crowd cheer as Epic turns around, only to be hoisted into the Ragnalrok, which Ragnal nails perfectly. Vice and Striker are already waiting on opposite turnbuckles, and they dive into the air, hitting a simultaneous Skyler High Dive and Halo!

Zach Davis: Epic wasn’t paying attention, but I’ll bet he is now!

Shannan Lerch: Unprovoked! Unprovoked I say! You saw them repressing him, didn’t you? That’s the violence inheriting the system!

Vice, Ragnal and Striker stands over the fallen Epic as “Social Register Fanclub” hits the arena again and they make their exit.

Rich Marciano vs Joe Everyman

BOOM! Ladies And Gentlemen by Saliva starts blasting over the PA system. Pyros are going off on the stage all over the place. Joe Everyman then comes out onto the stage. He looks into the crowd. Maria Williams walks out from behind Joe and looks into the crowd too. Joe gives Maria a kiss on the cheek as they both start to walk down the ramp. Joe Everyman and Maria Williams continue walking down the ramp looking into the crowd. Joe then comes to the end of the ramp and does a Brock Lesnar esk jump. Joe Everyman walks up the steps and climbs into the ring. He looks around in the crowd and hold up his arm. Then loud blue pyros shoot from the ring posts. Joe stands in the middle of the ring and waits.

Zach Davis: The newcomer Joe Everyman is waiting for his opponent Rich “The Xtreme One” Marciano!

Lights fade to black then you hear Voodoo by Godsmack playing. Then TXO emerges from the back area with a towel over his head and mouth guard in walks right down to the ring gets to ring apron and jumps right on the apron. He then wipes his feet off and then gets in the ring. He then lifts both arms in the air knocking the towel off his head, he then goes to all four corners and crosses his hands forming an X for his name. He takes off his tag team championship belt and hands it to the referee who sets it off to the side.

Shannan Lerch: This should be an interesting match of different styles.

Zach Davis: Joe is a grappler as Rich is a technical wrestler, so this will be very interesting.

Both men shake hands prior to the lock up as they begin to dance around the ring feeling each other out. They lock up as Rich gets Joe into a front face chancery and holds the move for a brief moment before Joe gets out of it and reverses into one of his own. He then crawls up the back of Rich and has him in a rear naked choke hold. The referee is checking to make sure it is a legal choke hold as it is, he asks Rich if he’s done as Rich shakes his head no. Rich finally manages to get out of the hold as both competitors are back to their feet.

Zach Davis: Looks like you can’t go to the ground with Joe Everyman or he’ll beat you.

Shannan Lerch: I’d like to go to the ground with Joe Everyman!

Zach Davis: You had better hope Maria doesn’t hear you say that or you are done for!

The lock back up as Rich spins around behind him and begins rolling German suplexes! He rolls off 3 straight and bridges out in the 3rd!

1...

2... KICK OUT!

Rich continues on the assault by slamming forearms into the back of Joe. He swings him into the ropes and comes back with a HUGE belly to belly suplex! Another pin!

1...

2...

3..KICK OUT!

“The Xtreme One” picks up Joe again who begins slamming fists into the gut of Rich who plants a huge elbow into the back of Joe causing him to drop down to a knee. He lefts his arm up and NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! He bridges again!

1...

2...

3..BARELY KICKS OUT!!

Rich stands and waits for Joe to get to his feet and is begging for him to get up. Joe staggers back to his feet as Rich kicks him in the gut and places his head between his knees lifting him up..CRADDLE PILEDRIVER!! Joe’s head literally sticks straight into the canvas as his body propels into the air! Rich is back up and is signaling to the crowd for the move he does to honor his fallen partner The Violent One! Joe slowly gets back to his feet as Rich lifts him up on his shoulders..DEAD ON ARRIVAL! He goes straight into his new submission hold the END OF LIFE!!

Zach Davis: He’s got his new move locked in on Joe Everyman called the End of Life, a version of the STF!

Joe Everyman taps out quickly as the referee calls for the bell and one half of the tag team champions gets the victory!

Shannan Lerch: JOE TAPPED OUT!!!

Zach Davis: Looks like Rich “The Xtreme One” Marciano has hit a hot streak now!

The referee raises Rich’s hand in victory and hands him the tag team championship as Rich dusts a small thing of sweat off of his brow and flicks it on Joe Everyman before he leaves back up the ramp to a HUGE ovation!

Jay Williams Segment

The scene cuts back to the ring as "Born of a Broken Man" by Rage Against The Machine is playing as Jay Williams is in the ring with his wife Amy Skye-Williams, who looks a little more pregnant now it seems, as she holds her stomach. Jay has a mic in hand.

Jay Williams: Cut the music...now, with admist of all of the other stuff that's going on around the wrestling world, i'm pretty sure all of you remember last week's Explosion PPV, now don't you? And in it, was a match. It was Rob "TXO" Maricano and his impromptu partner, the ever so crazy Davey Boone, and they took on me and Spike Kane in a steel cage match for the WCF Tag Team titles. And i'm sure you're all wondering the golden question, and that's why did I....

Williams gets cut off as the lights dim out and a red siren light begins to flash wildly at the stage as Avenged Sevenfold's "The Wicked End" hits the sound system. On the screen we see a black image of a Spike Impailer being hit before a pyro explodes as the guitars kick in. The lights come back in, flashing crazily as Spike Kane walks out from the back, the fans cheering as he grins, extending his arms and baling his fists. The lights flash wildly still and the siren light stops as Spike walks slowly down to the ring slapping hands with the fans on his way. When Spike reaches the ring he rolls in under the bottom rope, he then climbs to his feet and climbs the turnbuckle outstretching his arms once again and balling his fists, tilting his head back...as the music fades. Spike drops to the mat and the lights return to normal as he grabs a mic.

Shannan Lerch: I have no idea what is going to go down here?

Zach Davis: Me neither. Williams left on Spike, but why?

Shannan Lerch: Well, we'll know now.

Spike Kane: Yeah Jay...I do wanna know the "golden question". I do wanna know why in the hell you left me hanging last week at Explosion? What, did you think that the Tag belts weren't on the line or something or was it just you?

Jay pauses for a second as he lifts back up the mic in his hand.

Jay Williams: See, that's what I wanted to talk about before you came out here, but since you are now, I guess I can tell you in person, ok? Ok, it was my fault...I was just simply frustated, like the card for this week's Slam said. I wasn't thinking right, and everything was running through my head and it just got way out of control, so I bombed out on you and left to the back with Amy. She already knows and such about this. I apologize, man? I sincerely apologize. Ok? Now let's get the hell out of here and focus on getting back those WCF Tag titles from Boone and Marciano.

Spike Kane: Yeah man, I forgive you. Stuff happens, you know.

Spike drops the mic and walks over to the ropes as Jay drops his, walking behind him....AS HE GRABS SPIKE INTO A WILLIAMS DRIVER! The fans are shocked yet not so shocked to see Jay do this to Spike. Jay goes back over and picks up his mic, kneeling down to Spike's unconsicous face.

Zach Davis: What the hell is Jay Williams doing out there?

Jay Williams: You know what...I lied. I'm not sorry about what the hell I did last week. I was being honest though when I said that I was frustated out there with everything running through my head...but that was your fault Spike. See, when I teamed up with Reckless Jack, the sky was the limit for me. It was one of the best times in my life. Then he tweaked his neck because he was trying to save me and my pregnant wife's ass out there. Then you had to come along and think this was nothing, to think that you could walk up and proclaim yourself to be a leader of this "group". Well let me ask you this? WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN, LEADER? For the past two weeks, I haven't heard from you, you haven't been receiving my calls, nothing. I saw you twice during the past 2 weeks and one was at Explosion. Where the hell have you been, huh? Oh, I know where...

Jay picks up the hair of Spike as he's still out unconsicously.

Shannan Lerch: This is getting out of hand now.

Jay Williams: The other day, me and Amy were minding our own business, watching TV in our hotel room, when all of a sudden, we see somebody on the screen that we recognize...somewhere else. Remember when you first came to the WCF, and you burnt the XHF World Heavyweight Title? Well guess what I see everybody...SPIKE KANE IN THE XHF! He was refereeing a match...a Hardcore title match might I add you, and guess what? He did NOTHING! Just called it right down the middle. Spike, you would rather do something like that instead of helping out your partner in need for a more important match like that? What a freakin' sellout you are, going down on your hands and knees, calling for your job back to there. Well guess what, I repayed the favor last week of rathering doing something else then helping you out, and i'm so glad of it. My teacher's right...you are the worst scum in the world.

Jay drops the mic and kicks Spike right in the gut as "Born of a Broken Man" plays out over the PA system, the fans booing as Jay helps Amy out of the ring due to her pregnancy as Jay follows her, a weird grin across his face.

Zach Davis: What the hell has gotten over Jay Williams?

Shannan Lerch: I have no idea, but that wasn't right.

Zach Davis: I actually agree with you this time for a change.

Jay Williams vs Dehart

The lights dim and the opening of "Deserver" by local Iowa band Index Case plays, At 22 seconds when the lyrics come in with "fuck your memories," Dehart emerges from the back to red lights fading in and out. Dehart is wearing a white camo beanie with a bill backwards, and a red star on the front, the signature hat of WWE superstar Edge. The crowd cheers him on, headbanging to the song. Dehart himself headbangs a little as he walks down the ramp and toward the ring. As Dehart reaches the apron, he slides in and throws up some devil horns, which the crowd does back. Dehart then pounds his chest twice and takes off the Edge hat before going to a corner and placing his head on the top turnbuckle.

Zach Davis: And a welcome back to Dehart here.

Shannan Lerch: Where has he been?

Zach Davis: Remember...the MCE division ended.

Shannan Lerch: Oh yeah.

All of the lights in the arena shut off then as slow piano-like music intro of "Born of a Broken Man" by Rage Against The Machine fills the PA system...everybody knows who's coming out, but before the song kicks into high gear, it changes to something else, as the sounds of "The House of The Rising Sun" by The Animals starts playing, and it's nearly into the song because out comes Jay Williams to high crowd boos as he looks around to see the booing fans as he grins to the fans and to the camera, walking down to the ring with the song playing. Jay smiles as he runs up the stairs as the chorus blasts on and goes through the ring ropes pumped up and energetic. He gets in the ring, passing his opponent and/or the referee and gets on the turnbuckle raising both of his hands up in a "gun" like fashion before firing them off to the crowd, them chanting obscenities to Williams and booing him all to hell as the song fades out.

Zach Davis: I can't believe what Jay Williams did eariler.

Shannan Lerch: Well now that you think about it, Spike did abandon his partner way before Explosion.

Zach Davis: Wouldn't say that.

Both men are now in the ring and the bell rings. The two men circle each other and Dehart raises his hands for a tie up. Jay raises his hands too before kicking Dehart in the stomach. Jay then bounces off the ropes and comes back with a sharp elbow to the back of Dehart's head. Dehart drops to his knees and Jay bounces off the ropes again and executes a front dropkick to the face of Dehart. Dehart recouls and bounces backwards, Jay right after him as he mounts Dehart and begins to deliver punches to Dehart's face.

Zach Davis: And Jay takes one hell of an early advantage.

Shannan Lerch: You can say that again!

Jay slams fist after fist into Dehart's face before Dehart uses his strenth to roll over and reverse the situation. Dehart delivers one or two punches before he gets up off of Jay, not favouring the brawl at all. Dehart awaits Jay to get back to his feet and runs off the ropes so he's facing Jay, Jay is up as Dehart jumps with a knee to the head of Jay. Jay falls backwards and Dehart locks in an armbar on Jay. Jay reaches out for the ropes, being just out of reach, but Dehart gets up, not letting go of the arm. He drags Jay to his feet and then pulls him over with an armdrag right into another armbar. Jay yells out as he reaches for the ropes, this time reaching them. The ref tells Dehart to break the hold, and he does so.

Shannan Lerch: And Dehart proving he's a better mat wrestler.

Zach Davis: Which is kind of weird, knowing Dehart in the ring.

Dehart backs away as Jay tries to get up. Dehart charges but Jay ducks down pulling the top rope with him. Dehart is sent flying over the top rope and crashes to the outside. Jay grabs the ropes and jumps up, turning himself around mid-air, he planchas off the top rope and dives backwards landing on top of Dehart. The crowd are going wild and both men are out on the floor at ringside.

Jay is up on his feet first, but not by much as Dehart gets to his feet. The ref has begun his countout and is at around Three by now. Jay grabs Dehart by the hair, but Dehart charges forwards with his shoulder dug into Jay's lower abdomen, Jay hits the apron as a result of the charge. Dehart then grabs Jay by the head and goes to hit him off the ringpost, but Jay stops himself, and slams Dehart's head into the ringpost instead. The ref is now on around seven, so Jay rolls Dehart into the ring and then slides in himself. Jay covers Dehart.

1........

2.......

3.....NO, Dehart kicks out there.

Zach Davis: Jay almost had a victory there.

Jay slams the mat, but knew he wouldn't win. Instead he grabs Dehart by the hair and drags him to his feet before kicking him in the gut and pulling off a flowing DDT. Jay sits up and claps his hands mockingly as he drags Dehart to the corner. He sits Dehart up, facing outwords and spits towards the crowd who are booing him. He then goes to the opposite side of the ring and sits on the turnbuckle before jumping down and charging at Dehart, he lifts his knee to smack Dehart, but nobodies home. Dehart had rolled out the way and Jay crashes and burns.

Shannan Lerch: Jay misses...thank god.

Zach Davis: I know there's hate to be had here, but don't wish injury on the guy.

Shannan Lerch: Hey, as long as he isn't dead...who cares.

Jay cries out in pain before he stumbles around, turning around right into It Came From Hyrule as Jay's head nearly comes off. The crowd mark out like a bunch of bitches, as do the commentaters, and the refs, the cameramen and even the timekeeper. Jay is sprawled out in the middle of the ring and Dehart goes for the cover, the crowd chanting along with the ref's count.

ONE....

TWO....

THREE.-

NO! Jay somehow gets his shoulder up.

Zach Davis: Holy crap!

Shannan Lerch: How in the blue hell did he kick out of that?

The crowd errupt into boos as Jay kicks out. Dehart pulls his hair a little before getting to his feet. He stalks Jay daring him to get up, and Jay does...very slowly, obviously his brain is a little rattled after Dehart's lariat. Jay is on a knee as Dehart charges looking for the Dehartattack II, but as Dehart tries to lift Jay up, Jay ducks. Dehart is spun around and facing away from Jay before Jay grabs the arms of Dehart and drives him down with the Williams Breaker The crowd mark out, even though they hate Jay. Jay then climbs to the second rope and taunts to the crowd before jumping off with the Williams Drop. He covers the now unconscious Dehart.

ONE...

TWO...

Spike Kane is in the ring with a chair, and he whacks Williams hard with it. The bell rings.

Zach Davis: This match has been thrown out!

Spike hits Jay over and over with the chair, but Jay quickly rolls out of the ring and runs up the ramp to regroup. Spike stands in the ring, smiling.

Shannan Lerch: We thought Spike Kane was down and out, but we were wrong!

Zach Davis: Williams looks towards the ring with borderline hatred in his eyes before heading to the back. Spike eventually follows.

Merc Segment

"The Enemy" by Godsmack hits the speakers.

Zach Davis: We were told this was going to happen sometime tonight.

Shannan Lerch: Merc helped Steve Carr win against Outcast last week, and now he has something to tell us.

Merc makes his way out from the back to cheers, although a few boos can be heard as he makes his way down the ramp and into the ring. He is handed a microphone and begins to speak, in a slightly different voice than what we have heard in the past.

Merc: I was a part...the major part...of a lie, a deception, perpetrated against WCF, and WCF fans. In the past, I would have said, oh well. That was what I was here for. That sort of thing is my job. It's what I'm paid to do, although in this case it was as a personal favor. But now...

He pauses and looks out at the cheering crowd.

Merc: ...now, I have to say that I'm sorry. I shouldn't be, because everything worked out and now Steve is back and ready to win the World Title. And he's going to do it the right way. But, my talents are supposed to be used to entertain, not deceive. So I hope you can accept my apology.

The crowd claps.

Merc: But that's only one reason why I'm here tonight. The other is to announce that I am leaving WCF, for now. Don't get me wrong, this is what I would like to do for the rest of my life. Well, at least for as long as I'm physically able to. If I'm going to do this, though, I want to follow the example of my good friend Steve Carr, and do it right. If I'm going to do something, I want to be the best I can. So I'm going to go home and finish my training, and work hard until I'm as good as I can be. And then I'll be back...

His voice changes to the lower voice he had been using during his time as Merc.

Merc: ...so watch your backs, WCF, 'cause you never know when I'll show up in the shadows right behind you!

He takes the mic away from his face as he cracks up laughing. The crowd cheers and "The Enemy" by Godsmack hits. He walks back up the ramp and waves to the crowd when he gets to the top.

Zach Davis: Merc leaving to finish training before he comes back to compete. That's very admirable.

Shannan Lerch: Nonsense. He's shown enough skills that he could still get paid quite a bit to stay here. He should get as much money as he can while he's still able.

Zach Davis: Take the money and run?

Shannan Lerch: You know it.

Tag Titles Contendership
The Callaway Brothers vs Team NCW

'Remedy'' By Seether hits as Outcast and Davey Ortega emerge from the back. The smile, Outcast giving the finger to the fans as Davey waves to them. They walk to the ring as confident as ever. They enter the ring holding up their hands. Outcast then gets a mic.

Outcast: You all wanna know the newest Team NCW member?

The crowd kinda cheers, because they do want to know, but kinda boos too.

Outcast: Well... we'll tell you after this match!

All booing now.

"Metalingus" starts playing over the PA system. The crowd starts cheering loudly. Rob and Scotty Callaway come onto the stage and look around into the crowd. They then raise their arms and pyros shoot from the front of the stage. Rob and Scotty then run down the ramp and both slide into the ring. Rob does the RVD taunt and Scotty jumps on the turnbuckle. Scotty puts his arms in the air and Rob jumps around a little. They then both move to the center of the ring and highfive. They then stand and wait for the match to begin.

Zach Davis: And here we go-

Outcast and Ortega rush the Callaways, tackling them to the ground and beginning to pummel them. Outcast and Ortega stand up and begin kicking at them then. They kick Scotty Calaway out of the ring, Outcast then picks up the other Callaway on his shoulders while Davey climbs to the top... Ortega hits a Facebuster, and Outcast hits the Electric Chair drop!

Shannan Lerch: They call that the NCW Domination!

Oucast makes the pin.

One.

Two.

Three.

Zach Davis: The Callaway Brothers decimated in their debut.

The Callaways head to the back, and Outcast gets back on the mic.

Outcast: Now, the important business. You'll find out the new member of Team NCW... after this break.

The audience groans.

Team NCW Segment

Back from break. The ring is covered in a red drape, a podium stands in the center, and the entrance way is lines with a red carpet. ''Personal Jesus'' fills the arena as Team NCW, Outcast, who has a briefcase, Davey Ortega, and Rick Mad emerge from the back.

Zach Davis: I don't believe they left and then came back just to do another entrance.

Shannan Lerch: Well now they're dressed real snazzy!

They are all in matching suit and ties, showing unity and oneness. They start to walk down the red carpet, Outcast leading the pack. The fans boo but Outcast just has a smile on his face throughout it all. They approach the ring and Ortega and Mad hop up to the apron first, pulling the ropes open for Outcast, who gratiously leaps onto the apron and through the ropes. Ortega and Mad follow as Outcast goes to the podium, and places the briefcase on it.

Outcast: Tonight, is history in the making. Tonight, someone currently under WCF managment will make HISTORY by joining NCW. This man is a former WCF Champion, he has been one of the most controversial wrestler in the industry. Tonight he will walk down that red carpet, walk to this ring, shake my hand and recieve this.

Outcast opens the briefcase and pulls out an NCW shirt

Outcast: He will be the ONLY WCF wrestler to ever..ever wear this shirt. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the newest member of NCW..the great--

Metallicas ''The Struggle Within'' hits and the crowd EXPLODES as Outcasts eyes widen, the the unthinkable happens LOGAN emerged from the back lookin at the ring. Outcast shakes his head no as Logan laughs, he walks down the red carpet. He slowly walks towards the ring, eyeing Outcast. He hops onto the apron and gets into the ring. He produces a mic from his pocket.

Outcast: What...why...THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE?! This is my moment, dammit. Where the hell is..

Logan: SHUT UP!

The crowd cheers watching Logan, and Outcast stare each other down. Logan slowly reaches into his back pocket which had a black t-shirt hanging out, Logan pulls the shirt out slipping it on. In big bold red letters it reads "NCW".

Zach Davis: No f'n way in hell! Not Logan, he loves WCF! And hates Outcast!

Shannan Lerch: Twisted man.

Shock forms over the face of Outcast whom continues to stare at Logan, but suddenly a grin forms over Logan's face. Some of the crowd members begin a NCW chant.

Zach Davis: Keep in mind that Logan WAS in NCW.

Outcast extends his hand, and Logan shakes it.

Shannan Lerch: I can't believe it.

Zach Davis: I still don't think thi--

Before Zach is finished, Logan pulls Outcast into him kneeing him in the gut, and then grabbing him by the neck giving him a Connector! Logan stands up quickly staring at Davey, and Rick Mad.

Zach Davis: I KNEW IT! Logan just hit The Connector on Outcast!

Shannan Lerch: As long as this world exist Outcast, and Logan will never be friends. Plus, who the hell is going to trust a man that calls himself The Face of Treachery?!

Rick Mad, and Logan share a brief stare down before Logan finally exits the ring. Walking up the ramp Logan takes the NCW shirt off throwing it into the crowd as Outcast slowly begins to recover stunned in disbelief.

Zach Davis: So much for there being a new NCW member tonight.

Television Title Contendership
Dave Holland vs Jason Anderson vs Lance Ryan vs Johnny Craven

The lights all turn into a blue, and white in color on the entrance way and stage. The music over the PA would be the song “Daylight Dies" by Killswitch Engage. The fans start to cheer, and others boo. Walking out of the entrance way with a towel on his shoulders is Jason Anderson. He walks out with a cocky smirk, yet determined look on his face.

We cannot be so blind
Hear their cries
The wait 'til daylight dies

The cost of one life
The price of ones soul
Is too much to lose

Anderson walks down the ramp and says stuff like “ This is my night baby ain’t no other way else.” He walks around the ring smacking hands with some of the fans. After that he slides into the ring and jumps up high. The fans cheer when he gets up. He then climbs the turnbuckles and throws his fist up into the air highly.

“No More Sorrow" by Linkin Park hits as the crowd begins to boo the People’s Champion wildly! He struts down to the ring and lays his People’s title across the announce table before climbing into the ring.

Zach Davis: One half of our competitors have arrived and are already nose to nose in the ring and are both ready to get it on for the number 1 contender to the TV title!

There's an almost orchestral hum of feedback over the speakers. The lights throughout the arena rise to blinding levels. It's an actual whiteout. An eerie sounding piano begins to play just a few notes. A few moments later it's bass notes start playing and a drum starts ticking along. Shortly after the drums begin playing properly. During this time a light mist covers the stage.

A guitar suddenly cuts in a couple of times as the lights drop suddenly like a power cut. Then everything kicks off together and an explosion of white fireworks explodes about the tron as out onto the stage runs a man dressed in his traditional white wrestling tights with silver trim and a plain white training jacket. He jumps in the air and spins around greeting his massive fanbase. Above him the tron shows off just who he is. The man looks up and smiles as he looks at it.

As the lyrics for the first verse are sang, Dave goes to one side of the stage, hyping up that part of the crowd. He then gives a big ol' thumbs up to them before returning to the other side of the stage and doing the same there. The crowd are chanting furiously over the song but can barely be heard. Dave likes his music loud.

Dave makes his way to the top of the ramp during the refrain at the end of the verse. As the chorus kicks off a huge ticker tape explosion goes off above the stage. It flitters about the entire crowd though.

Dave skips down the ramp sideways facing the crowd on one side, hi fiving every single hand he can reach. About a third of the way down he switches sides but does the same thing. During the instrumental section Dave slides into the ring with a huge charge. He jumps up and looks around quickly.

He climbs the turnbuckle nearest the most die hard of his fans just as the instrumental comes to an end. The now infamous Die-Hard-Holland-Fans. He flicks them a two fingered salute (salute with two fingers... not a metaphor). He then looks around the rest of the crowd and beats his breast twice before raising his fist high into the air.

As the music fades away Dave drops of the turnbuckle and realizes the 2 already in the ring are fixing to start the match without him! He begins to get involved in the pushing and shoving.

Shannan Lerch: THINGS ARE ABOUT TO BOIL OVER HERE ZACH!!!

The lights dim as the sound of a gong is heard throughout the entire arena. As the gong continues to ring, the sound of a motorcycle engine reving up is heard. 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. Craven leaves the bike and climbs into the ring and immediately starts to rock everybody in the match with huge right hands as Lance Ryan slides out of the ring on his own with the crowd in a frenzy at the sight of one “Texas Red”, the “Hardcore Assassin”, Dave Holland leaves the ring and Craven shows Jason Anderson the hard way out of the ring by a huge clothesline!

Zach Davis: Craven has stolen the show here tonight and has cleared the ring as the referee is calling for the bell to officially start the match!

Lance Ryan is the first back into the ring in pure frustration as he attempts to lock up with the big man but is tossed clear across the ring. Anderson enters in right behind him with the exact same idea but is also tossed back into Lance Ryan as they are both stacked into the corner. Holland puts his hands up showing Craven he’s smarter then that as Craven gets a huge running start and slams into both Ryan and Anderson in the corner! Holland enters the ring but is met by a huge double handed choke by Craven who hoists him up and slams him down! Craven makes the quick cover!

Zach Davis: CRAVEN HAS DONE IT HERE!!

1...

2...

3..KICK OUT BY HOLLAND!

Craven looks at the referee and starts slapping his hands 3 times saying the ref didn’t count fast enough! This time gives Lance Ryan and Jason Anderson the opportunity to communicate with each other and begin double teaming Craven! The crowd is booing them wildly as they stomp and stomp on Johnny Craven, they lift the big man up and swing him into the ropes and lock hands for the double clothesline in which Craven ducks and fires himself off the opposite side and DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE OF HIS OWN! Lance and Jason slide out of the ring as Holland is back up and runs towards Craven but Craven ducks down and picks him up to deliver the Redline Hangover!

Zach Davis: Here it is! Craven will end it right here and become the #1 contender to the TV title!!

Holland is fighting and somehow spins around and TORNADO DDT!! Both men are down and out of it as Lance Ryan notices the opportunity and slides in to cover Holland!

1...

2....

3..INTERRUPTED BY JASON ANDERSON! Lance is back up as they begin pushing and shoving each other and arguing on who is suppose to get the pin. They begin to brawl it out with each other in the middle of the ring exchanging right and left hands as Craven and Holland are both up. They look at each other and both run at the two and clothesline them out of the ring! After they’ve knocked them out of the ring they look towards each other as the crowd is rumbling like a freight train coming right through the building! Holland lands a right hand..and Craven fires one back...Holland nails him with another right hand as Craven fires back again with another one. They exchange punches back and forth like this until Holland grabs the upper hand and starts hammering Craven with knife edge chops! He gives Craven another big punch as he runs to the other corner and comes back with a quick knee strike to the head! Craven drops to a knee as Holland runs and nails him with a kick to the side of the head! Holland makes the pin!

1...

2..CRAVEN KICKS OUT!

Holland is climbing up to the top and points to the crowd as they are loving the match! ELBOW DROP!! Lance Ryan has entered back into the ring but Holland notices him and ducks a clothesline attempt and turns around and attempts to kick Ryan but Ryan catches his foot. Holland leaps up in the air and gives him a spin kick to the head! This launches him to the outside of the ring as he lands on Craven on the outside! In comes Jason Anderson...THE MAGIC TOUCH BY HOLLAND! Holland wastes no time pulling Anderson to the middle of the ring and locks him in The Epitome of Excellence! He’s got it locked on hard and bending the back and legs of Jason Anderson. He’s trying to fight to the ropes but he just can’t go anywhere! Lance Ryan is trying to climb into the ring to make the save but is grabbed by Craven on the outside who nails him with a huge right hand! Craven climbs into the ring and leaps across it to make the save....ANDERSON TAPS OUT!! ANDERSON TAPS OUT!! ANDERSON TAPS OUT!! Lance Ryan grabs his People’s title and leaves mad and feeling robbed! Craven just lays there shaking his head in disappointment. Anderson rolls out of the ring as the referee is holding up Dave Holland’s hand in victory!

Zach Davis: So at Aftermath, Dave Holland will challenge for the TV title against either Mike Ragnal or Bobby Cairo!

Shannan Lerch: What an exciting match we just saw!

Holland leaves the ring and back up the ramp as Craven stands in the middle of the ring disappointed on his loss. The crowd is giving him a standing ovation as somebody is seen coming through the crowd. DANNY VICE leaps the guard rail and climbs into the ring! He’s got Craven’s 2 by 4, chair wrapped in barbed wire! Craven doesn’t see him though as Vice nails him in the skull!!!! Craven is out cold with blood flowing from his head! Medics are to the ring as Vice drops the weapon and leaves the ring!

Zach Davis: Why would Vice do this to Craven with their up coming match at XIII?

Shannan Lerch: I’m guessing he’s just sick of Craven getting in the way of his Hardcore title!

Zach Davis: HIS? Creeping Death is the holder of the Hardcore title and it is UNDISPUTED! Craven doesn’t look good right now, the medics are trying to get him on the stretcher and he’s obviously not moving right now. They are going to need some extra help lifting him.

The tag team champions and Craven’s good friends Davey Boone and Rich Marciano are there to help get him on the stretcher. Boone stays with Craven as they move him to the backstage area and lifts him up into an ambulance and out of the arena!

Seth Lerch Segment

The screen is black.

THIS IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT FROM THE ATLA.

We fade to Seth's office, where he is wearing a shirt with the ATLA initials on it and has a grin on his face.

Seth Lerch: Hello! This is a paid advertisement by the Anti-Torture League of America. Torture, Creeping Death, who do you two think you are? I don't know how you still have control of that stupid XIII show to begin with, but my lawyers tell me there isn't anything I can do about it. Thank God I don't have a talent contract. And thank God you agreed to let me replace myself with the man who will be fighting you Friday the 13th, Torture. But first, let me talk a little bit more about Torture and the ATLA's goals. Torture, people say you're Superman. I mean, you had one hell of an undefeated streak. Virtually unbeatable. The ATLA is here to put a stop to that. We're tired of your loud mouth and we're here to get rid of you for good. And we've got your kryptonite, Torture. And it isn't any glowing green crystal, as cool as that would be. It's a man you know. And me and this man will be seeing you real soon, Torture.

Seth smiles at the camera, and is clearly 100% confident.

Seth Lerch: Yep. Less than two weeks now, buddy. Can't wait. See you then. Ciao.

The screen goes black again.

THIS HAS BEEN A PAID ADVERTISEMENT FROM THE ATLA.

Mike Ragnal Segment

Mike Ragnal is walking backstage, creacking his knuckles as he heads to the ring. From behind, his girlfriend Sasha Pehl runs towards him.

Sasha Pehl: Michael Zachary RAGNAL!

Mike stops in his tracks, a look of fear on his face, as he turns toward the Australian.

Mike Ragnal: Babe, are you that upset with me?

Sasha Pehl: As a matter of fact, I AM! Mike...I’m glad you won the number one contendership last week, I really am. But you’re risking our relationship...and our romance...over a title?!

Mike Ragnal: It’s not about the title, Sasha, and you know that!

Mike sighs before he gets angry, and turns away from Sasha.

Mike Ragnal: Sweetness...this isn’t about the title right now. It’s about Skyler and his daughter. She’s only five years old, Sasha...and for her to just be taken away like this?

Sasha places her hand on his shoulder.

Sasha Pehl: But...do you have any idea what could become of me if he wins?

Mike nods slowly, still looking away from her.

Mike Ragnal: Yeah...I have. But Sasha...you have to realize...

He turns back toward Sasha, placeing his hands on her shoulders.

Mike Ragnal: This isn’t just about me and Cairo anymore. It’s Index Three and Cairo. If I lose, we all lose. So you just need to trust me on this...please...

Mike leans in to kiss the Australian woman, but Sasha turns her head and looks down at the ground.

Sasha Pehl: You know...you can be an idiot at times.

Hurt, Mike steps away from Sasha, who after a few seconds, turns her head at him...and smiles.

Sasha Pehl: But...you’re a brave idiot, and a thoughtful idiot. And...I do trust you with this.

Mike looks with confusion, but after a few seconds he smiles, and the two walk in to one another, and lock lips. They eventually part, and smile once more.

Sasha Pehl: Good luck, luv.

Mike Ragnal: Thanks, Sash.

Mike Ragnal pecks Sasha on the forehead one last time, then turns and walks to the ring, while Sasha watches him, smiling with confidence.

Television Title Match
Mike Ragnal vs Bobby Cairo

The camera switches to the front of the announce table, where Zach and Shannan introduce the next match.

Zach Davis: Folks, right now, it’s time for the WCF Television Championship match, and what may be Mike Ragnal’s last chance to win the title away from Bobby Cairo, with the added stipulation being that if Ragnal wins, Cairo lets Jade Striker go free.

Shannan Lerch: And if Ragnal loses, he has to give up Sasha Pehl. If I were Ragnal, I’d give it my all tonight.

Zach Davis: Seriously. I can’t imagine having to be around Cairo for more than twenty minutes.

Shannan Lerch: Oh, that poor girl.

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, the TV title around his waist, and the crowd boos even louder as they see Jade Striker’s arm being dragged by him. Cairo slowly walks down to the ring with no expression on his face. Once he gets in the ring, he holds a fist high, and a large image of him scrolls down over the stage, which he smiles at. He then points for jade to go sit over by the announce table.

Zach Davis: Alright, that’s just lame.

Shannan Lerch: Mhm.

“11 Dreams” fades out, and “H! VLTG3” by Linkin Park plays over the sound system. Eventually two lightning bolt pyroes strike the stage, and light a flame big enough to turn Cairo’s image to ash.

Zach Davis: BAHAHAHAHAHAAA! I love it!

Mike Ragnal walks out, as the crowd cheers him on. Taking in a deep breath, Mike walks down the ramp, ignoring the fans who normally want to slap hands.

Zach Davis: Mike is definitely focused tonight, but how much good will it do him?

Shannan Lerch: Let’s find out.

Mike slides right into the ring, and sees Cairo charge at him with a clothesline. With little reaction time, Cario knocks Ragnal down into the canvas. Cairo grabs both of Mike’s legs and looks to place him into a Figure Four, but Ragnal kicks Cairo off him him, sending him into the ropes. As Cairo charges back, Ragnal handsprings, and dropkicks Cairo to the mat.

Zach Davis: Now there’s strategy for you. Rather than risk taking another clothesline, Ragnal waited for Cairo to charge at him before he got to his feet.

Shannan Lerch: Bah, it’s luck. Nothing special.

Ragnal follows with a senton splash, and then grabs Cairo’s leg for the pin.

1!

2!

Cairo kicks out. Ragnal kicks at Cairo’s ribs a few times, then looks to drop an elbow. Cairo rolls to the side, and Ragnal hits the ring, then grabs his elbow.

Zach Davis: Uh oh. Looks like Ragnal hit himself hard there.

Cairo picks Mike up to his feet and kicks the midsection slightly, then grabs his arm, twisting it into a hammerlock. As time passes, Cairo twists it harder, keeping Ragnal from heading towards the ropes.

Zach Davis: Crap, looks like Cairo’s starting to do some work onto that arm!

Shannan Lerch: Well, you can’t blame him. It’s Ragnal’s fault he grabbed it after he fell!

Zach Davis: Whatever.

Forgetting there’s more than one way to get out of a submission, Ragnal raises his leg and kicks it into Cairo’s leg. He does so repeatedly until Cairo lets go, grabbing his leg in pain. Ragnal then turns around and kicks Cairo in the back of the head!

Zach Davis: And there’s an enziguri from the Master of Elemental Disaster!

After Cairo falls forward like a tree, Ragnal drops his leg onto Cairo’s neck, then rolls him over to pin.

1!

2!

Cairo gets his shoulder up.

Zach Davis: Nuts.

Ragnal picks Cairo up, but Bobby shoves Ragnal into the ropes, and Superkicks Ragnal as he runs back towards him!

Zach Davis: I felt that one!

Shannan Lerch: In that case, I think both you and him are going to need your broken teeth removed and replaced with dentures.

Cairo then stomps on Ragnal’s arm, then grabs it and locks in the Fujiwara armbar.

Zach Davis: Dammit, the Clap Trap is locked in! How much of this is Ragnal going to be able to take?

Not much apparently, as Ragnal takes his free arm and punches at Cairo, who after a few extra seconds, finally lets go. Ragnal grabs his arm, rubbing it to get the pain off of it. Cairo gets up to his feet, and kicks Ragnal in the stomach, hitting him with a brainbuster to follow!

Zach Davis: Well, Ragnal escaped, but that arm of his distracted him too much to let Cairo get back in right away!

Cairo goes for the pin.

1!

2!

Ragnal gets his shoulder up! Cairo pushes Ragnal over onto his stomach, and locks in the STF. Unfortunately, the move is pretty close to the ropes, and Ragnal grabs the bottom one. The ref counts to four before Bobby lets go. Cairo gets to his feet and drags Ragnal to the center, looking to put the STF in once more.

Zach Davis: He’s going to try and force Ragnal into the move again! This can’t be good!

Just as Cairo grabs one of Mike’s legs, Ragnal pushes his hands into the mat to leverage his upper body higher, then crawls and rolls towards Cairo, knocking him down to the ground. As Mike rolls to his feet, he grabs Bobby’s leg and begins to twist on the ankle.

Zach Davis: Ragnal has the ankle lock in!

Cairo squirms to the ropes, but Ragnal keeps him locked in tightly, away from every which direction. Cairo gets close to the ropes, but Ragnal drags him away towards the center. Cairo raises his right hand...

Zach Davis: Tap, dammit! We need Jade away from that sicko!

Rather than listen to Zach, Cairo forces the leg back higher, booting Ragnal in the face, and knocking him to the ground. Cairo grabs the ropes for leverage, and gets back onto his feet. He continues by climbing to the ropes, his back turned to the ring, and leaps off for a moonsault...and connects onto Ragnal! Cairo hooks a leg to pin!

Zach Davis: C’mon, no! Don’t let it end like this!

1!

2!

Ragnal kicks out!

Zach Davis: Hallelujah!

Shannan Lerch: Ya mind shutting up?

Cairo gets back onto his feet and kicks repeatedly into Ragnal, hoping he hurts something in the process. He then picks Mike up and looks for a suplex, but Mike slips out right behind him, and locks in the Shock to the System!

Zach Davis: Yes! The Shock to the System is locked in!

Shannan Lerch: It might be working up Cairo’s body, but just how long can Ragnal keep him locked in? And CAN he make him tap?

Zach Davis: Oh, sure. Take all the fun out of this.

After about forty seconds, Cairo runs to the ropes, and lifts his legs up, kicking off the middle rope. Ragnal falls onto his back, releasing the hold. Cairo then climbs onto the top rope for a diving elbow drop, but Ragnal rolls out of the way, causing Cairo to eat canvas. Cairo gets on his knees and grabs his elbow, and Ragnal runs at him from behind, dropkicking his back, and forcing him facefirst into the mat!

Shannan Lerch: Now that’s some good footwork.

Ragnal rolls Cairo over onto his back, and covers for the pin.

1!

2!

NO! Cairo kicks out!

Shannan Lerch: Ragnal knew this match wasn’t going to be easy, Zach, so he shouldn’t expect an easy victory.

Ragnal gets to his feet, the fatigue of the match showing as he limps towards the turnbuckles, and climbs on top. Mike leaps off for the High Voltage...only for Cairo to lift his knees up and hit Ragnal’s back!

Shannan Lerch: Yup, not so easy.

Zach Davis: Oh, stop!

Ragnal sits up and grabs his back, only for Cairo to get right onto his feet and PUNT Mike in the back! Cairo runs to the ropes, and hits a rolling cutter onto Ragnal!

Zach Davis: A rolling cutter onto a sitting opponent! We may never get this kind of action ever again!

Cairo drops an elbow onto Ragnal’s chest before going for the pin.

1!

2!

NO!

Ragnal gets the shoulder up!

Zach Davis: Cairo’s in disbelief over this right now!

Shannan Lerch: I think a lot of people are in deisbelief right now!

Cairo grabs Ragnal’s legs and turns him over onto his stomach, then places his knees into Ragnal’s back.

Zach Davis: Cairopractor! This might be the end of it for Ragnal!

Shannan Lerch: Are you serious? Nobody wants that to happen! C’mon, Ragnal!

With Ragnal placed in the middle of the ring, he looks to have no way to go. As he raises his hand to submit...

Zach Davis: Whoa! What the hell is this!?

Both other members of the Index Three, Skyler and Vice, climb onto the apron, attempting to get inside the ring. As the ref tries to keep them at bay, Ragnal is tapping out!

Zach Davis: The Index Three came at the best of times right now. If the ref saw that Ragnal tapped out, this would have been over, and we’d never see either Sasha or Jade ever again!

While all this goes on, Sasha Pehl climbs into the ring from behind Cairo, and runs to the ropes. Taken by surprise, Cairo’s too shocked to counter the running stunner he receives from the Australian.

Shannan Lerch: Sasha Pehl saves the day!

Zach Davis: I can’t blame her! Would YOU want to spend the rest of your life with that dingdong?

Both men are now down on the ground, whereas Striker and Vice have left the apron and are on the floor, along with Sasha Pehl.

Shannan Lerch: I dunno about you, but I’m having a hard time believing that Sasha could take Cairo out that easily.

Zahc Davis: I’m not.

Eventually, they get back to their feet, and begin to trade punches and chops. It goes back and forth between both men for a while, until Cairo takes a hard swing, and Mike ducks under, hoisting Cairo onto his shoulders. He spins him over his head, and takes him down with a RAGNALROK!

Zach Davis: It’s over! It’s GOTTA be over!

Rather than go for a pin, Ragnal signals for both his teammates to come into the ring. As they slide in, and Sasha climbs the apron to distract the referee, Ragnal climbs onto the turnbuckles, then onto both men’s shoulders. As he signs himself for prayer of this working, he leaps off...and hits!

Zach Davis: MAXIMUM VOLTAGE! It’s done!

Ragnal lies atop Cairo and hooks the leg, while Sasha leaves the apron and Striker and Vice get out of the ring. Ragnal raises his arm, counting as the ref slaps his hand into the mat.

1!

2!

3!

Zach Davis: Ragnal wins! Ragnal wins!

As “H! VLTG3” plays over the sound system, Jade gets off of her chair and runs to her dad, and the two meet with a cherishable hug while the fans erupt in enjoyment. Vice claps for both of his teammates, as the ref hands the Television Championship to Ragnal. As Mike holds the title high, Sasha excitingly hugs her boyfriend, and he returns the favor. Eventually, Ragnal asks for a microphone, and speaks into it, as he looks at the TV title.

Mike Ragnal: Wow...yanno, this is a damn shiny belt, I’ll give them that. But yanno...this belt hasn’t been for me this whole time. Sasha...this one’s for you.

As Index Three watches on, Mike gets down in the center of the ring, on one knee.

Mike Ragnal: Sasha Pehl...will you marry me?

The crowd gives an “aw” reaction, and after a few seconds, Sasha smiles...and takes the mic for her answer.*

Sasha Pehl: Mikey, luv...I’d be proud to forever be a Ragnal!

The crowd erupts with cheers, and Mike gets up on his feet, and he and Sasha kiss, while Skyler covers Jade’s eyes of the mushiness.

Zach Davis: Well, how about that? It looks like we’re gonna have a wedding in WCF!

Shannan Lerch: Oh, great. A wrestling wedding. Those always turn out perfect.

Lawnmower Jones Segment

The words "My Name Is Lawnmower Jones and I Love to Mow!" are heard over the PA system, followed by Scottish bagpipes. LJ walks out from backstage alone with a mean and nasty look on his face. He does not touch the fans and quickly goes to the ring.

Zach Davis: Shannan, it's Lawnmower Jones!

Shannan Lerch: I'm not blind, Zach!

Zach Davis: We haven't seen him in months! Ever since the Bobby Cairo feud in which his life Lonnie was put in the hospital, Jones has been absent from the WCF!

Shannan Lerch: Lonnie isn't with him right now, Zach. She must be at home baking cookies. Jones probably just doesn't want to risk her getting injured again. The WCF is a circus, and freaks like Cairo roam the backstage area freely.

Zach Davis: You make it seem like Jones isn't one of those freaks...

Jones is in the ring now. He has a microphone in his hand is pacing around. The crowd is buzzed to see Jones again after not seeing him for a while.

Lawnmower Jones: Bobby Cairo had to do what he had to do. I'm over that. But the aftermath of his shenanigans is one that left me in turmoil.

Zach Davis: He sounds smarter.

Lawnmower Jones: My beloved wife, Lonnie, passed away more than a month ago, due to complications from the surgery she needed after the brutal attack from Cairo.

The crowd goes silent for a moment, shocked that Lonnie is no longer with us.

Lawnmower Jones: I know, I know. It's a shock. Unexpected. But I've come to terms with the loss, and I've realized that Lonnie wouldn't want me to sit around and mope. She'd want me to find someone else. Someone who knows me. She doesn't want me to get lonely and suicidal, at least that's what she told me after snuggle time.

Shannan Lerch: I'm in shock.

Zach Davis: What, that Jones actually got some?

Shannan Lerch: No, that Lonnie is gone.

Lawnmower Jones: It's time for me to move on. This is why I'm coming back to the WCF, no Lonnie. However, I am giving everyone out there to see a different side of me. A side that isn't about violence. A side that is passionate. If you will all turn your attention to the titantron, please watch what hopefully will change my life.

Zach Davis: Could? This IS interesting. Lawnmower Jones is going to do a reality show about his love life!

Skyler Striker/Danny Vice vs Epic/Creeping Death

"Social Register Fanclub" by Boysetsfire hits the arena as the lights dim. A sharp blue light starts fanning around the arena, quickening its pace until the main guitars enter. All lights go off at this point for a few seconds until the chorus hits, when everything lights up and pyro explodes at the stage. Danny Vice and Mike Ragnal explode from under the stage through trapdoors and Skyler Striker jumps out from the central entrance. They all converge as they walk down the ramp and enter the ring, Ragnal and Vice going to the turnbuckle and Striker going to the opposite ropes to cheers from the crowd. They switch turnbuckles and rope and repeat, then meet in the middle as three separate blue rocket pyros explode from the ring.

Shannan Lerch: Skyler and Danny will be in this next match up, it is our main event, Zach.

Zach Davis: Yes it is Shannan..

The lights go out and the arena is blanketed in darkness. “Perfect Strangers” blares through the building and several spots flash on the ring and all the way up the entrance way. The spotlights shine of all different colors, but in the middle of each light is the letter “E” in a gold color light. Suddenly there is a quick pyro explosion, the spotlights disappear and the arena’s light turn back on. Standing at the entrance way is Epic. He slowly makes his way to the ring, once he gets to the ring steps he removes his robe and finally makes way in the ring.

The lights slowly fade to black. Bells toll as the screen shows shots of a big wooden cross wrapped in barbed wire. It's a sunny day as the "happy" opening to "The Light That Blinds" by Shadows Fall plays.The crowd goes along with the sounds. "Doo-da-doo dooing" along with it. As the song gets darker and darker, the sunny day turns to night. Black clouds roll in and rain begins falling on the cross. Lightning crashes about. As the lightning crashes, white lights in the arena flash. When the song kicks up, thirty four seconds in, the entire crowd begins head banging in unison and throwing the horns in the air as the lights come on just a tad, giving light to the dark. Standing on the stage is Creeping Death, wearing a black hoodie with the hood up, arms stretched out in a crucifix fashion, in his left hand, the WCF Hardcore Title. CD stands there for a second or thirty, until the vocals start, taking in the crowd's reaction. Then he slowly makes his way down the ramp, looking out into the audience. As he reaches the ring, he slides in under the bottom rope, and pops to his feet. CD walks over to a turnbuckle, jumps to the middle rope facing the crowd, throws the horns in the air with his right hand, and the WCF Hardcore Title up in his left as the crowd cheers. CD drops down, takes the hoodie off, hands the WCF Hardcore Title to the ref and then takes a seat on the top turnbuckle, awaiting the match to begin.

Shannan Lerch: Well, here we go!

The ref asks for the bell to ring....

Skyler starts out as does Epic. They tie up in the center of the ring!

Zach Davis: What a minute? Torture?

The One and Only steps out onto the stage and walks down the ramp. The crowd is going crazy. The five men in and around the ring stop and stare. Torture walks around the ring and sits down in between Zach and Shannan.

Skyler takes advantage of the confused Epic and pushes him to the mat. Skyler tags in Vice. All while Torture sits down at the announcers table and slaps on a headset.

Zach Davis: Oh my God! He isn't going to...

Epic taps. Immediately. The bell rings.

Shannan Lerch: Striker and Vice win! Why did Epic tap so fast?!

Zach Davis: Because he's a smart man. This is just a tag match... if he let himself stay in the Lockdown for too long, he risked leg injury, and thats no good for his chances at winning the Title.

Epic quickly slides out of the ring. Ragnal has gotten the best of Dehart and is in the ring now, and Index Three celebrates triumphantly.

Shannan Lerch: Argh, we're out of time!

Zach Davis: See you next week!
