Last Chance Triple Threat
Outcast vs Lawnmower Jones vs Alex Daniels
Outcast and Lawnmower Jones start the match off by throwing Alex Daniels out of the ring, perceiving him to be the lesser threat. Outcast and Jones fight amongst each other for a few minutes, evenly matched. But soon Alex Daniels reenters the fray, attacking them both after resting up.
Whenever there's a pinfall attempt, the third man is there to break it up. At the eight minute mark, no one has scored a pinfall.
At the ten minute mark, Lawnmower Jones locks Daniels in the Jonesmission!...
Outcast breaks it up.
At the twelve minute mark, Outcast manages to hit a Sick Twist on Jones. This time, Daniels breaks the pinfall up.
And at the fourteen minute, fifty second mark, Jones has Alex Daniels back in the Jonesmission!....
But Daniels doesn't tap out.
The match ends.
Zach Davis: Well.. what now? NO ONE got a pinfall or submission this entire match!
Shannan Lerch: Does that mean... they're all fired?
"Change" by Deftones hits the speakers as the ref looks around, not knowing what to do. The curtains are parted and out walks Gravedigger and the rest of the Dark Side including manager Jayson Stasiak and valet Jessie.
Gravedigger walks over towards the steps as Chester and Dobbie slide under the ropes and stand up. Mike D walks up to the side of the ring and grabs one of the ropes and pulls himself up and into the ring. Gravedigger holds the middle rope down for Jayson and Jessie as they climb in also. Outcast, Alex Daniels, and Lawnmower Jones all get up and step to the other side of the ring.
Gravedigger is handed a mic.
Gravedigger: Ok, you know what? That was a horrible match. It probably drove ratings down and we'll be lucky to get those fans tuning in after that.
Gravedigger smiles and starts applauding them. The rest of the Dark Side joins in clapping. Gravedigger turns to the crowd and encourages them to join in. The crowd boos Gravedigger. Gravedigger laughs.
Gravedigger: Hahaha, stupid fans, loving their WCF. I always knew deep down even when I was admired and cheered that you were all stupid and now I see exactly why. Anyway, promises are promises.
Gravedigger turns to the three wrestlers in the ring across from him.
Gravedigger: Your match stipulation was that the one with the least amount of pinfalls might be fired. Oh, wait, no one got any pinfalls! So you're all fired! Get out of my ring!
Outcast and Lawnmower Jones start to climb out but Gravedigger steps forward.
Gravedigger: Whoa whoa whoa, where are you going?
Outcast and Lawnmower Jones stop and look at Gravedigger shrugging.
Gravedigger: I didn't mean get out of the ring that way.
Gravedigger grins as Mike D steps past him and in one quick motion takes both men out with a massive double clothesline. Chester and Dobbie each grab one of the two men, pick them up and them toss them over the top rope to the outside. They then help Mike D surround Alex Daniels. Gravedigger speaks.
Gravedigger: And you, Mr. Daniels. My personal favorite, truth be told. According to said stipulation, you too are supposed to be fired. However, I've decided to change my mind. I want to offer you a spot in The Dark Side. Would you like that?
Alex Daniels nods.
Gravedigger: Well too bad! You're not good enough! You can't even get one measly pinfall in a triple threat match, you think that you're good enough to run with me? I'm tired of looking at this scum-sucking leech. We're not firing him, hospitalize him. Teach him a lesson about not following the "rules".
Gravedigger, Jessie, and Jayson Stasiak exit the ring. Chester grabs Alex Daniels and irish whips him across the ring. Daniels bounces off and Chester jumps to the floor. Daniels jumps over him, bounces off the opposite side. Dobbie leaps forward and lands a vicious superkick on the jaw of Daniels. The three men laugh as Daniels is laid out cold. Chester and Dobbie slide out of the ring as Mike D picks up Daniels' limp body. Mike D lifts him up and hits an F5 in the middle of the ring. Mike D starts laying boots to Daniels as Chester and Dobbie enter the ring with a pair of chairs.
Mike D picks Alex Daniels up and starts slapping the side of his face until Daniels comes to. Daniels starts using the ropes to slowly get up. After a minute, he stands on his own two feet, turns around and is drilled as Chester and Dobbie slam chairs into both sides of Daniels' head.
"Change" by Deftones starts playing on the speaker as Chester throws down his chair and exits the ring with Mike D. Dobbie starts to put down his chair but then turns to Daniels and hits him one last time in the back with the chair. Daniels writhes in pain on the mat, screaming out in agony. Dobbie drops his chair with a smile and then exits the ring and joins the others on the ramp. Paramedics quickly make their way to the ring to tend to Alex Daniels. The show fades to commercial as the camera stops on The Dark Side all looking pleased with what just happened in the ring.
Thunder vs Prince Jimmy Dean
The lights go off and Jerry "The King" Lawler's music starts playing. A single spotlight shines on a vacant archway and Prince Jimmy Dean is majestically pulled out on a golden carriage by two white horses. The crowd is silent in awe at the grandeur of the entrance. Prince Jimmy Dean is pulled around the ring while the crowd silently looks upon his carriage in awe. He slowly gets out of the chariot and gracefully walks into the ring and stands in the center as the single spotlight shines on him. The light goes off and he waits for his opponent to approach.
Zach Davis: Wow! That is a breathtaking entrance! Such a lavish spectacle might be unjustified for any other newcomer, but it seems only fitting for Prince Jimmy Dean. After all he is the first member of a royal family to ever compete in the WCF ring.
Shannan Lerch: I like to think that my brother and I form the only royal family around these parts, Zach.
Zach Davis: But I'm talking about Papua New Guinea!
"Money" by Pink Floyd begins to play. As the cash register sound ends and the music begins, Thunder walks towards the ring. He reaches the apron and climbs the turnbuckle, taunting the fans.
Zach Davis: Thunder lost a hard fought bout last week to Corey Black. He'll be looking to redeem himself tonight against His Royal Majesty.
Shannan Lerch: Tell me, Zach, what can we expect from this Prince Jimmy? Does he have any prior wrestling experience?
Zach Davis: I'm told that Prince Jimmy once defeated a dragon.
Shannan Lerch: Which dragon? Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat? Ultimo Dragon? "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson? Super Dragon? Dragon Kid?
Zach Davis: Not any of those. I'm talking about a real-life, fire-breathing dragon!
Shannan Lerch: ...What?
Zach Davis: Seriously!
Shannan Lerch: No.
Following some pre-match banter between the two foes, the bell sounds to start the match. Thunder and Prince Jimmy circle a bit and then immediately lock up. Jimmy gets the advantage and works Thunder into a headlock.

Zach Davis: Prince Jimmy is showing a very well rounded offensive game thus far. It looks like this royal and regal rookie has a strong game plan coming into this match.
Shannan Lerch: Jimmy is definitely showing us some skills. He may come from an unconventional background but the man can bring it.
Jimmy plays to the fans, drawing a nice pop. Jimmy props up Thunder and nails him with an inverted atomic drop. Jimmy pulls Thunder to his knees and sets him up for a powerbomb. Thunder surprises Jimmy by blocking the powerbomb and then counters with a back body drop. Jimmy is quickly to his feet. Thunder whips Jimmy into the ropes... Thunder nails Jimmy with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Thunder stomps away at Jimmy, clearly pissed off at being momentarily thwarted by his less experienced opponent.

Thunder nails Jimmy with a running knee to the midsection. Thunder hoists Jimmy up into the air and drops him across the knees with a punishing gutbuster. Jimmy is in obvious pain on the mat. Thunder smirks and flicks his sweat onto Jimmy, drawing more boos from the fans. Thunder goes for the Texas Cloverleaf, but Prince Jimmy counters into a small package. One... two... kickout by Thunder.
Zach Davis: Thunder got cocky and it almost cost him! Great counter by Prince Jimmy!
Shannan Lerch: That was crafty, I wonder if he learned that from fighting all them dragons?
Both men are back to their feet. Jimmy headbutts Thunder in the eye socket one, two, three and then four times. Thunder is stunned and tries to shake it off. Jimmy sends Thunder into the ropes... Jimmy nails Thunder with a back kick to the gut that doubles Thunder over. Jimmy measures Thunder and then charges Thunder and drops him with a swinging neckbreaker.

Zach Davis: Prince Jimmy is really taking it to Thunder now, putting a lot of pressure on the decorated WCF veteran.
Shannan Lerch: Thunder needs to get his act together. He's the technical wizard? Grab an arm, grab a leg, rip it off, do something!
Jimmy pulls Thunder to his feet and whips him hard into the corner. Jimmy charges in, but Thunder stops, drops and rolls out of the way. Jimmy hits the turnbuckles hard, so hard, like it's a tall tree. Thunder seizes the opening and immediately lets loose with hard boots all about Jimmy's head, neck and torso. Thunder is cursing he's so pissed at this point. Thunder sets Jimmy up for it... and then tosses Jimmy to the mat like a rag doll with a violent-looking T-Bone suplex. Thunder isn't finished.

Zach Davis: Thunder looks pissed, like Lex Luger trying to take off a T-shirt.
Shannan Lerch: You're not kidding and as Thunder now pulls Jimmy back to his feet, I gotta tell ya Jimmy's spine is looking a tad askew, you know what I mean?
Thunder props Jimmy against the corner turnbuckles and analytically dissects Jimmy with a barrage of "back-hand" or perhaps even "knife-edge" chops. The fans "Woooooo!" along with each chop, but only to fit in with the rest of the crowd and not because they like Thunder. Thunder walks Jimmy to the middle of the ring. Thunder sets Jimmy up for a suplex, but Jimmy blocks it. Jimmy counters. Jimmy picks up Thunder for a vertical suplex... and then dumps Thunder down to the floor, outside of the ring, and that's a hard fall because there's no padding down there, just concrete. The crowd "OOOOHS!!!!" at the sheer violence of the spectacle but Jimmy doesn't waste any time on pandering to the fans. No, Jimmy is focused as he climbs the ropes all the way to the top and waits for Thunder to get up. Several tense moments pass, with many people in the arena unsure of whether Thunder is OK to continue the match. Thunder does finally climb to his feet with the aid of the guardrail. At this precise moment Jimmy launches himself 15 or 20 feet into the air above Thunder and then reigns down upon Thunder with the greatest of vengeance and a suicide plancha to boot.
Zach Davis: Oh my clucking God! We have utter carnage at ringside!
Shannan Lerch: Oh my soul! That was some Cibernetico shiz right there by Prince Jimmy!
Zach Davis: Medics, we need medics! We have two injured and possibly dead wrestlers at ringside! Better call the coroner just in case!
It's all very exciting at first, but then the referee gets bored after a few moments of waiting for one or both men to do something and so he begins to count both men out. Theoretically the ref could use his judgment to end the match right here and now, declaring the finish to be a "Double KO", but wouldn't that just be an anticlimactic ending that would bring everybody in the audience down? You have to at least give these guys a chance to beat the count and get back to their feet. Slowly but surely signs of life begin to stir at ringside. The referee continues his count... 7... 8... 9... 9 1/4.. 9 1/2... suddenly a roar goes up in the crowd as Prince Jimmy's hand emerges to break the plane of the ring and restart the referee's count. The ref shrugs as if to say "Gee, that was a close one. Oh well... maybe next time." Jimmy slides Thunder and then himself into the ring and makes the cover.
THR--NO! KICKOUT BY THUNDER!!!
Zach Davis: Close! So close! Dammit I thought Jimmy had him for sure!
Shannan Lerch: What are you, openly rooting for Prince Jimmy? Anyway it takes a lot more than a near death experience at ringside to put Thunder away.
Zach Davis: I'll root for whomever I want to dammit, and Prince Jimmy happens to be very charming! He's a real Prince Charming!
Both men are slow to their feet, of course, because they're both pretty banged up at this point. Prince Jimmy is up first, Thunder slowly follows. Jimmy measures Thunder and connects with a big, looping, overhand right that knocks Thunder down to the mat in a heap. Jimmy makes the cover. One... two... Thunder kicks out. Jimmy points his finger in the ref's face and informs the ref that he will not tolerate any further shenanigans, and instructs the ref to count faster next time. Jimmy pulls Thunder to his feet and sets up Thunder for a Russian legsweep; Thunder blocks it, lands an elbow to the face and drops Jimmy with a picture perfect DDT. Thunder drapes his arm over Jimmy's chest. One... two... Jimmy kicks out.
Zach Davis: Thunder pulled that DDT from out of nowhere, a great counter and he nearly got the pin on Prince Jimmy!
Shannan Lerch: Thunder is the thinking man's wrestler that’s why he makes all the cheddar. Thunder is tough, sexy, rich... OOH! I just had one!
Zach Davis: Girl pleasures?
Shannan Lerch: Yep!
Both men are slowly up. Thunder scoops up Jimmy and goes for the Thunder and Lightning (Death Valley Driver), but Jimmy resists with an elbow to the head and slides out of Thunder's attempt at his finisher. Jimmy lands on his feet behind Thunder. Thunder turns around, Jimmy lands a boot to the midsection and goes for his patented Sausage Slammer (Stunner). Thunder blocks it and shoves Jimmy into the corner. Thunder quickly swarms Jimmy from behind and locks Jimmy in the Cobra Clutch.
Zach Davis: Cobra Clutch! Cobra Clutch! Thunder's got it locked in!
Shannan Lerch: It's only a matter of time now! Save yourself Jimmy and tap, you can still be happy on your island kingdom, it's better than a hospital room!
Thunder shakes Jimmy around like a small child as he drags Jimmy to the middle of the ring and locks the Clutch in tighter. Jimmy appears close to his end as the ref checks to see if he's still conscious. The ref checks Jimmy for a pulse and then raises Jimmy's arm into the air. The ref lets go and Jimmy's arm drops to his side. The ref raises Jimmy's arm again and lets go. Jimmy's arm again drops to his side. The ref raises Jimmy's arm for a third time and lets go... suddenly Jimmy's hand turns into a fist, which Jimmy begins to vigorously pump, drawing the crowd back to life.
Zach Davis: Jimmy's not finished and Thunder looks stunned!
Shannan Lerch: No! No! No! The plan is all going to Hell! What the hell happened?!
Jimmy lands repeated back elbows to Thunder's body. Using a burst of energy, Jimmy bulls Thunder backwards into the corner turnbuckles and uses a corner avalanche to break Thunder's Cobra Clutch. Jimmy and Thunder both tumble to the mat, having each expended a tremendous amount of energy.
After a few moments pass... Thunder slowly gets to his feet. He picks Jimmy up and goes for the Thunder and Lightning, but Jimmy knees Thunder in the head to escape. Jimmy sets up Thunder... and hits the Baconator. Jimmy makes the cover.
Zach Davis: It's all over! Prince Jimmy is victorious in his WCF debut! What an impressive showing by the Prince from Papua New Guinea, and this win will certainly justify the hype to all of these naysayers who think that pro wrestlers shouldn't be pulled to the ring in a golden carriage by horses!
Shannan Lerch: Sigh... pout... yeah, yeah, great job, Jimmy. Thunder... call me when you get out of the hospital!
The referee raises Prince Jimmy's hand in victory as Jimmy's music plays. Prince Jimmy puts on his cape and grabs his scepter, then bows toward his royal subjects in the audience. They respond with a hearty round of applause and a few of them kneel down in honor of the great Prince. ALL HAIL PRINCE JIMMY!!!!!!!!!
Corey Black vs Brad Kane
Shannan Lerch: Now, for the first of our two WCF World Title Tournament Matches ... two guys that know each other a little too well.
No theatrics. No lights going out, nothing. Machine Head's cover of "Hallowed Be Thy Name" by Iron Maiden hits the PA system. With every bell toll, the lights flash brighter. When Robb Flynn comes in singing, the crowd sings along. "I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime. Reflecting on my past life, and it doesn't have much time. Because at five o'clock, they take me to the gallows pole. The sands of time, for me, are running looooow!" One minute and eight seconds in, when the guitar hits, Corey Black comes through the curtain and onto the stage, wearing the Creeping Death mask and a black wig that resembles his former hair, along with a black hoodie with the hood up. Black stops on the stage and takes in the reaction from the crowd, looking out to them from behind the mask. Corey walks down to the ring, not veering from a straight shot into the squared circle. Corey slides in under the bottom rope and gets up, throwing the devil horns as he stands, to which the crowd does back. Corey pulls his hood down and removes the wig and Creeping Death mask, once again looking out and getting a reaction. Black takes off the hoodie and drops all the items on the apron, then walks to the far corner and awaits the match to begin.
Zach Davis: "Don't Call Me Creeping Death" Corey Black, after defeating Thunder, advances on in this tournament.
Shannan Lerch: God I hate CD.
"In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty... handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with."
The house lights go out in the arena as the opening of "Eye of the Storm" by Killswitch Engage flares up. Strobe lights begin to go insane when the vocals blare out of the sound system as Brad Kane, PWA World Light Heavyweight Championship strapped around his waist as he appears in the entry way. The crowd cheers seeing them as Brad inhales before he makes his way down the ring. A few hands get slapped but not many as once Brad is at ringside, he hops up on the ring apron. The lights are back to normal as they enter the ring as he heads to the nearest turnbuckle and goes up to the middle buckle. He takes the World Light Heavyweight Title off of his waist, holding it up into the air as he looks out into the crowd. Some take pictures as he steps down, inhaling once more as he does the same thing on the other side of the ring. He then backs into the corner as hands the Light Heavyweight Title to the ref. Brad then waits for the match to begin as his entrance song fades off.
Zach Davis: "Don't Call Me Reckless Jack" Brad Kane moved on after beating a newcomer who doesn't matter anymore.
The bell rings, and we're off. Brad rushes at Corey and hits a big boot to the face, Corey with an overhand chop, Kane with an elbow shiver, Corey with a leg kick, Brad with a karate chop to the neck, Black with a roundhouse to the side of the head, Kane hits the ropes and dropkicks Corey who flies into the other ropes and comes back with a spinning wheel kick! Both men are down! The crowd is going insane!
Shannan Lerch: What the hell am I watching!?
Both men kip up, but Kane strikes first, using his momentum to hit a European uppercut. This sends Black into the corner, where he's met with a running clothesline. Brad snapmares Corey out of the corner and soccer kicks him right in the spine. Then steps over and hits one to the chest. Brad jumps up and lays out, hitting an elbow drop to Corey. Kane turns to the ropes, leaps off the bottom, and drops a knee across Black's chest.
Zach Davis: The Kane Train is ROLLIN'!
Shannan Lerch: Seriously?
Brad goes for a bottom rope jump leg drop, but Corey rolls backward avoiding it, rolls to his feet, bounces off the ropes and front flips into a dropkick to Brad's face all in one motion! Black flips back and hits a big standing moonsault onto Kane into a pin!
No, Kane kicks out. But Corey transitions into "This Cold Black" almost instantly!
Shannan Lerch: Ah! Pin into submission!?
Corey wrenches back on Brad's arms, but Brad finds the ropes with his toes. Black is forced to break the hold, which he does. Black helps Kane up and throws him into the ropes, and on the return, hits a big back body drop. Kane returns to his feet quickly and is pushes into the corner, where Black follows him in with a clothesline where Black leaps and sits beside Kane on the middle rope. Black skins the cat over the top rope and lands on Kane in a piledriver position where Black picks him up and powerbombs Brad back into the corner!
Zach Davis: More innovation. Jeez.
Black once again charges at Kane and hits a knee to the face. Kane crumbles to the mat, sitting against the turnbuckles. Corey delivers another knee to Kane. Black pulls him out and goes for another pin.
Shannan Lerch: Kane can take a lot of punishment.
Corey looks up at the ref in frustration. The ref signals two, and Corey picks Brad up, delivering a cut throat motion as he stalks. Corey locks Brad up in a backdrop, but Kane backflips and grabs Corey! Brad lifts Black up but Black backflips too, but he lands on the apron. Brad turns and hits a spinning backfist.
Shannan Lerch: The BK Backfist!
Black almost goes down, but doesn't. Kane steps out onto the apron as well, and hooks Black's arms behind him. Kane throws Black back and dumps him off the apron in a Tiger Suplex! Black lands on the back of his head on the floor! Kane stays on the apron!
Zach Davis: Oh!
Black folds to his stomach and clutches his head in pain. Kane stands up and drops off the apron with a stomp to Corey's back. The ref starts his count. It's nullified by Kane throwing Black into the ring and going for a pin!
Zach Davis: Insane.
Kane picks Black up and throws him to the ropes. Kane with a leap frog, drop down and Black steps over, and into a big expoder suplex as Black made his third pass from the ropes! Brad backflips with the exploder and lands on Black, picking him up again and throwing him in another exploder into the corner! Corey hits the turnbuckle upside down and bounces back onto his stomach. Kane pulls Black's legs up and sits down with a high angle Boston Crab. Brad sits way down with it, right on Corey's head.
Shannan Lerch: Shades of Skyler Striker with this one.
Corey reaches for the ropes, but he's too far. Inch by inch he crawls and makes it. Brad breaks the hold almost instantly. Kane waits for Black to use the ropes to stand, and pushes him into the turnbuckle. Kane levels Black with a big superkick, to which Black repiles instantly with a huge lariat, sending Kane down in a heap! Corey crumbles beside him. Seconds pass before Black can reach an arm over..
NO! Kane kicks out. Black flops onto his back in disbelief. Both men have taken a fair amount of punishment. Black pulls Kane to the middle of the ring and picks him up, locking him in a front facelock. From there, he picks Kane up to a suplex.
Shannan Lerch: Brainbustaaa-NO!
Kane twists out and lands behind Black on his feet! Kane clubs Black in the back and pumphandles him, looking for LMSBCBK! NO! Black elbows Kane in the side of the head and lands on his feet, kicking Brad in the gut and underhooking the arms!
Shannan Lerch: FOR WHOM TH-
Another reversal! Brad back body drops Black over and keeps his arms hooked in a pin!
NO! Black bridges up, and spins back to a standing base with the arms hooked. Kane turns more and pulls Corey over in a backslide!
NO! Black rolls back over to his feet. Kane stands up and Black sunset flips over into a pin!
NO! Kane kicked out! The two stand up and the crowd is going BANANAS. Without hesitation Kane throws a European uppercut, knocking Corey in a spin and puts Black up in a reverse DVD position!
Zach Davis: RECKLESS KILL-
Not today! Corey uses the momentum to backflip over and land on his feet with Kane's head hooked in a DDT! Corey flips over and drills Kane down with Your Plague!
Corey throws a tired, lifeless arm on Brad Kane.
Shannan Lerch: HE DIDN'T GET IT!
Brad threw his shoulder up at the VERY LAST MOMENT. The crowd is livid. Black goes back to his job, and picks Kane up, pushing him to the turnbuckle. Corey puts Kane up so he's sitting on the top, and jumps up with him, sits on his shoulder and goes for a Frankensteiner, but Kane drops off the turnbuckles and powerbombs Black to the mat, holding it for a pin!
Zach Davis: WI-NO!
Black kicks out. Crowd is louder than ever. Kane is on his knees looking down at Black, who holds his skull in pain. Kane climbs up to the top rope and flies off with a big double stomp but Black moves! Kane lands safely on his feet and kicks Black in the head. Kane climbs up once again and this time connects with the double stomp, crushing Black's ribcage. Kane keeps the pressure on, picking Black up real quick.
Kane positions Black for the Love Megan Driver, picks him up, but Black breaks free on the way up and stacks Kane up with a surprise huricanrana roll up!
Shannan Lerch: Uugghh Corey Black wins.
Zach Davis: And advances to the finals.
Corey Black rolls out of the ring, exhausted. Kane is on his feet, livid at the surprise loss, arguing with the referee. But it is too late. Black heads to the back.
Metallica's "The Struggle Within" blares out over the speakers.
Shannan Lerch: Logan! I thought he was gone?
Following Shannan's dreamy sigh, "The Struggle Within" quits playing, the music changes to Five Finger Death Punch "The Bleeding". Some bickering confusion from the crowd drowns the music out, an exhausted slightly overweight Logan drags himself onto the stage with a hotdog in hand, and a microphone in the other. The music cuts.
Logan: Yeah, um.. sorry about that, I couldn't afford Metallica music anymore, that's probably the last time you'll hear that song in this arena.
Logan takes a bite of the hotdog with heavy mustard, munching on it, his eyes dancing over the booing crowd.
Zach Davis: He really let go...
Logan: Oh.. right!
Swallowing his food, he continues.
Logan: I'm out here to promote myself, a WCF legend, I don't really care what you boudles think.. but you know it's fact, I'm the best damn thing this company ever laid it's eyes on. I've got great DVD's, I'm not handing them out for free or anything, but I expect you morons to start purchasing them!
He takes another bite of the dog.
Logan: (Chewing) So... the buy rates on my movies go up, and no one has to put up with me anymore. Deal? No? You want to see the Face of..
Gulps down another section of hotdog.
Logan: ..Treachery wrestle again? That's not a real shocker, anyone on today's roster still doesn't match my skill. That being said, I'm going go hit the coffee stand, and see what these boudles in the back can work up for a match next week.
Logan rubs his mouth onto his sleeve, smearing any excess mustard off his lips, drops the microphone, and carries himself backstage.
Chad Evans vs Torture
The lights in the WCF Arena go dim. The sound of a harsh wind blowing can be heard over the PA System. The Slamatron video screen in the arena shows the image of a large, leafless branch of a tree twisting in the wind. The image slowly zooms out and we see a giant fire spreading through the land near the tree, the tree itself is soon overcome as the strong wind gusts blow the flames further out of control.
The image zooms out further and we see the remains of what appears to have been a once thriving village now in a large pile of rubble on the ground, the sound of fire raging and debris crackling melds to form a cacophony along with the howling of the wind. The video screen switches to an overhead shot of the barren, desolate wasteland being consumed by flame, and the words "Tenuous", "Impetuous" and "Subservient" flash on the screen in bold red type.
After a few moments the scene of the fiery wasteland fades into an image of the sun shining brightly in a clear blue sky. The camera zooms out and we see the image of a dragon flying toward the sun. The words "Embolden", "Enlighten" and "Illuminate" appear on the screen in dark blue type.
Suddenly the video screen goes black while a yellow strobe light fills the arena, the opening strains of "Illumination" by Rollins Band can be heard over the PA System. After a few moments Chad Evans appears at the entrance way draped in his orange robe. Evans stands motionless at the top of the entrance ramp. When the song picks up and the chorus hits, flames rise up from the floor, forming a circle around Evans. After the chorus ends, followed by a sweet guitar solo, the song gets quieter and the flames disappear.
Evans walks slowly down to ringside, expressionless, ignoring the fans, with his eyes locked on the ring. When he reaches the ring, Evans leaps onto the apron and flips forward over the top rope. In one swift motion Evans disrobes and hands the robe to a ringside attendant. Evans jumps up and down and does some quick stretches to warm up, then stands patiently in his corner with a focused expression on his face.
Zach Davis: Here we go folks! This is our main event!
