Before the show starts, Rolling Rolling Rolling plays on the television set, and you see highlights from the World Heavyweight Title Match from the last Pride N Honor
He picks up Shepard, and puts Shepard in a suplex position, and then hits the The Spoiler Alert, Shepard lands a bit ackward, and Showtime goes for the pin. One, Two, T, Shepard kicks out, and Showtime gets a big grin on his face as he knows he can now punish an injured wrestler. Showtime picks up the body of Shepard, and then whips him into the tunrbuckle, and follows in with a perfectly executed European Uppercut. Showtime then looks into the camera, poses and smiles, and then he guides the camera to the body of Clint Shepard, he then says, Pride N Honor is this all you got!!Showtime rolls to his feet as Shepard uses the ring ropes to try and get up to his feet. Showtime uses this as he bounces off the other side of the ropes, and while Shepards head between the second and third ropes, and Showtime delivers the Hollywood Hangover. Shepards eyes roll to the back of his head as his hands let go for the ring ropes. This time Showtime takes Shepards legs, and drags him to the middle of the ring. One, Two, Thhhhhhhhhhhhrrrrrr Shepard barely gets his shoulders up, and the crowd just goes crazy for Shepard. Showtime gets up, and just claps his hands together, as he waits for Shepard to get up. Shepard crawls to the ring ropes, and tries to use the ropes to get up, as soon as he is up enough, Showtime easily lifts Shepard, and puts him in the Office Plunge, Shepard immediately gets out of the hold, and then in desperation does a License to Kill!!!! Showtime bounces off the mat, and then as he bounces off the mat he rolls out of the ring, and Shepard falls to the mat.
Doc Adams: That is how Clint Shepard won the X-Fly title, the License to Kill!!!!! He needs to go for the noooooooo!!!!
Jim Taylor: I dont know if Mr. Showtime did that on purpose, but what the heck!! What a veteran move by Mr. Showtime, he cant lose the title on the outside of the ring!!Shepard drops to the mat as the referee begins his count. One, Two, Three, Four, Shepard starts to get up, and he sees Showtime still on the floor not getting up. Shepard rolls to the outside of the ring, and he uses the ring apron to stay up. He then grabs Showtime by the shoulders, and is barely able to lift the dead weight into the ring. Shepard barely gets him into the ring, and then rolls back into the ring. The crowd is getting excited as the Champion is still not moving, the referee comes down to his knees! One, Two, TTTHHHHHRRRREEEEEE!!!!
Doc Adams: What!!!! We have a new World Champ!! Clint Shepard has done it!!!!! Listen to this crowd!!!!!
The referee then jumps up, and sees Showtimes leg on the ring ropes. He quickly calls off the pin, and points to the leg on the ring ropes. Clint Shepard cant believe the mistake as he used a good amount of energy on jumping up in celebration. He looks down at Showtime, and Showtime is still out, but he is starting to wiggle a little bit. Clint Shepard goes to the referee to plead his case, and the referee just shows Shepard the foot on the ropes, and says there is nothing he can do about it!Box Office Plunge!!!, the referee gets down to the mat One, Two, THHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! ! The referee jumps up after the pin, and he is dripping with sweat!
Richard Emerson: The WINNNER AND STILLL HEAVYWIEGHT CHAMPION!!!!! MR. SHOWTIME!!!!!!!
Around the ring you see people standing up for Clint Shepard! Then the whole arena starts to stand up, and give Clint Shepard a standing ovation. Clint looks at the crowd, and then just gives the crowd a hand. As the show goes off the air you hear Doc Adams.
While the music is playing, pyro goes off all around the arena, and the camera starts to show various people in the crowd. Then the camera goes down to the commentators
Doc Adams: Last week was very explosive here in Pride N Honor, and we ended it off with a bang with Mr. Showtime narrowly escaping with his title!! This week Clint Shepard goes at it again, but this time with one half of the tag team champions Jackson Sonik!!!!!!!
Mad World hits and the crowd nearly blows the roof off the arena as they cheer their hero, Clint Shepard. He stands atop the stage to soak in the adoration from all of his fans before making his way down to the ring. He has on his True Icon t-shirt (that can be found on CWA.com), black track suit pants, and the International Championship draped over his shoulder as he climbs into the ring to a roaring ovation from the crowd. Before he begins to speak he soaks in the adoration some more.
Clint Shepard: Thank you so much. You have no idea how much that truly means to me, and I greatly appreciate the respect that you fans show me each and every time I step foot in this ring.
The fans get louder as they begin to stand, and most of them are clapping and are chanting a "Thank You Clint!" chant.
Clint Shepard: Now before I talk about tonight, I'd like to take this moment to talk about last week. Last week I took on Mr Showtime in a match in which some are already declaring as match of the year. We put each other through hell, and it was all over the grandest prize in our great industry, the World Heavyweight Championship. I give him my all, and he gave me his all, and in the end his was better than mine. Showtime was the better man that night, and he proved to me without a shadow of a doubt why he is one of the greatest champions this company has ever seen. Showtime, whether or not that you care, you have earned my respect after our great battle last week.
The fans begin to clap some more before Clint continues.
Clint Shepard: Now I may have not come out victorious, but I'm not going to let that get me down. Besides, I still am the Pride N Honor International Champion, and as the first ever International Champion, I promise to bring honor, and respect to this title. There's some people out there that believe I have no right in holding this title, that I didn't truly earn it. Well, let me just say this, if Cyrus Truth or Surge don't like me me holding this championship then that's their problem, but I'll be more than happy to defend it against either man and show them why I do deserve to hold this championship.
The fans cheer in approval at the last remark.
Clint Shepard: Before I do that though I still have to get through tonight. Similar to last week I have my work cut out for me when I face Jackson Sonik, and I will be defending my International Championship. Like I've stated I'm a fighting champion, and I am always willing to defend my title no matter what. Jackson Sonik has done it all in this company from being a multi time tag team champion, to becoming Mr Cibernetico. I have a lot of respect for this young man, but I know that the one thing that is on his mind is taking this title away from me. I can assure you Jackson that it will be no easy task to take this championship from me, it's going to take a lot to take it away from me. I know you have it in you to bring the best that you can, but you better hope that you bring more because if you don't, well then you'll be in a world of trouble. Tonight, I hope we put on one heck of a match for these great fans, and tonight you will see why I am the True Icon.
Mad World plays again as Clint exits the ring. He's walking back up the ramp as the fans continue to cheer for him
Lane Knight vs. Lefisto vs. Dan Dillenger vs. Hawk
Lefisto, Hawk , Dan Dillinger and Lane Knight all stare each other down, waiting for someone to make the first move, then suddenly...
Hawk hits Dillinger with the Firewall! Lefisto looks down stunned at the suddenness of it all, then BAM!
DEATH IN THY NAME!
Lane Knight drops Lefisto with his finishing move! Knight and Hawk stare each other down before coming to blows. Knight, then Hawk, then Knight, and Hawk again. Hawk tries to hit the FireWall! Knight grabs Hawk by the head and tries to reverse the Firewall into his own finisher, but Hawk pushes him off. Hawk tries to follow with a big boot, but Lane Knight catches his leg!
Hawk got caught! He screams as he tries to reach for the ropes, but Knight pulls him to the center. Knight puts his knee into Hawk's back, delivering more pressure. It looks like Hawk might tap. But, Lefisto is back up and rocks Knight with a rolling heel kick! Pay back from Lefisto to Knight. Dan Dillinger is back up as well, and scales to the top turnbuckle. Hawk is flat out his face! Dillinger signals for it and leaps off the turnbuckle!
THE FATEFUL KILLER!
Both feet right into the back of Hawk! Dillinger tries to cover!
1......2.... Lefisto breaks up the cover!
Dillinger and Lefisto argue until the both come to blows. Dillinger gets the best of the exchange he Irish whips Lefisto into the ropes, but Lefisto comes back and catches him!
THE PARTY STUNNER!
It's a finisher frenzy in the early going! Lefisto covers him!
1.....2.... Hawk and Knight break up the count!
All four men are down as the crowd cheers! Lane Knight is the first to his feet, follow by Lefisto, then Hawk, but Hawk is the first to shake off the injuries. He grabs Lefisto in position for the Firewall. But, wait! He grabs Knight in position for a DDT! Dillinger is face up on the mat! BAM!
A FIREWALL, DDT AND A LEG DROP! All three in one motion! The crowd begins to cheer!
Dan Dillenger goes for the pin. One, two, threeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!
Lindsay Monahan:The Winner in four minutes and 50 seconds, Dan Dillenger!!!!
We quickly go back stage
Katie Shields: We have Peter Jacobs with us, and he seems like he is ready to go on the attack.
Before Katie Shields can even get out the rest of her sentence Peter Jacobs takes the mic, and just begins going on a rant!
Peter Jacobs: Ever since I have been in this business everyone has continued to tell me what to do, and what to be, and I am sick and tired of this crap! With Pride and Honor coming to the forefront its time for me to also take the reigns and do what I need to do to stand out. I have been labeled as a gambler, as a card shark, if I was that why in the hell would I need to be wrestling!!! I would be making so much money that I wouldnt have to wreck my body the way I do in this ring. The only gamble I take every day is going out into that ring, and putting my body on the line for a bunch of idiots who really dont care. They see me go out, and they want me to entertain them, they want me to put my body on the line so that I can be broken, and in the ground while they laugh at me, and make me out as a pathetic sad story in the wrestling business! I am too damn smart for that! I dont need to fit an image of perfection, I have a fat wife at home, that cooks me pancakes and grits everyday when I wake up! I have ten kids that I have to feed everyday, so I need to come home, and bring home money to them! If I listen to these idiots out there then my whole family would be dead! I bring home the bacon, I go out and kill for our food. From now on the CWA is put on damn notice! I am not here to be your show pig, I am not here to be your show horse, I am here to the be the man who supports himself and my family! If you dont like that, come over by my house so I can hunt your ass down, and not get caught!!!!
Peter Jacobs looks into the camera with a big old pouch of snuff into his mouth! He looks down the camera and just spits on it. He then takes the mic, and throws it down as he walks out of the interview area. Katie Shields looks scared to death as the camera turns off.
Surge comes out of the gate and charges at Newman and hits him with a hard clothesline. Surge gets on his knees and starts laying into Newman head and wouldnt stop until the ref pulled him off. Surge walk cockily up to Newman and Newman pulls himself up using Surge as leverage. Surge grabs Newman by the face and begins to scream at Newman. Newman slaps Surge in the face which enrages Surge and he kicks Newman with a big boot straight to the face. It looks like Newman is completely knocked out but Surge not done. He sets Newman up for the Murder Bay Plunge. Surge hits it and covers Newman but he stops the count himself. He puts Newman on his shoulder and climbs the second rope and hits another Murder bay Plunge off the second rope. He covers him.
1 ..2 ..3!
Doc Adams: Surge is going off right now, and no one is safe under his path!!!
Jim Taylor: This is insane. Newman was just a hot prospect not only two months ago!!! Surge is going through these guys like butter!
Doc Adams: The rest of the Pride N Honor locker room better be put on notice! Surge is on a mission, and he wants that title shot he was promised!!!!
Lindsay Monahan: Winner of the Match in 45 seconds SURGE!!!!!!!!
The three men are in the ring, and although Peter Jacobs doesnt get along with Axl Storm they realize they have to get rid of the bigger man in Koran so they team up, and quickly bum rush Koran. Koran gives Storm a left hand that sends him back, and Koran then gives Peter Jacobs a boot to the stomach, Storm comes in again with a flying forearm, and it rocks Koran, and he goes to the ring ropes, but he regains his bearings again just to delivers a nice punch again to Storms jaw, and this time he combines the move with a big boot Jacobs head. Jacobs goes down to the mat, and is not happy about what just transpired. Koran looks in the middle of the ring with both combatants already down. Koran smiles and laughs, and then goes to pick up Storm. He puts Storm in a power bomb position, but Jacobs the opportunist goes, and clips the knee of Koran, and Koran goes falling to the mat. Jacobs though also smart, because he waited until Storm was being lifted in the air. As Jacobs clips Korans knee Storm also lands awkward, and he is hurt. Jacobs knows his best chance is with Storm so he goes to the ground, and uses all of his leg muscle to kick Koran out of the ring. It takes him about two or three strikes, and Koran rolls out of the ring. Jacobs looks down at Storm, and just smiles. He picks up the lighter wrestler, and throws him into the ring, and then he loads up his arm, lifting his arm in the air, and delivers a brutal clothesline that sends Storm flying through the air, and Storm does a flip bump for it. As soon as Storm lands, Jacobs doesnt waste anytime, as he continues to stomp out Storm, and Storm tries to roll outside of the ring, but Jacobs grabs Storm, and then drapes Storm into the second rope, and then starts to choke Storm out. The referee begins to count until five, and Jacobs barely breaks on four and half, he breaks the hold, and then bounces off the other side of the rope, jumps, and lands right on Storms neck. Peter Jacobs looks down at his handy work, and smiles, and then pulls Storm into the middle of the ring. One, two, Koran comes into the ring, and breaks up the pin. Jacobs again being the smart individual just backs off, and offers up Storm to Koran, Jacobs goes back, and just sits in the turnbuckle corner.
Doc Adams: Peter Jacobs is showing a completely different side of himself today. This man brutal, but he is also being cunning, this man could be dangerous if he ever puts it all together.
Jim Taylor: Its called using your brain knuckle head. Every professional wrestler has one, but they rarely use it!
Koran is a little confused to the sacrificial lamb that Jacobs has given him, but he doesnt really care as he picks up Storm by the hair, and quickly Storm gets on his knees, and punches Koran right in the balls, Koran goes down to his knees, and then Storm kicks Koran right in the head. Koran is confused not expecting that from the baby face, and Jacobs just sitting in his area applauds the young kid.
Jim Taylor: I am loving this new side of Axl Storm!!! This kid could become one of my favorite wrestlers!
Doc Adams: I am sure it was a heat of the moment move, and he didnt mean to do that. Storm is too good for that!!
Doc Adams: I know what I saw.
Peter Jacobs just stays sitting in the corner as Storm locks in the Peruvian Neck Tie, on the bigger man Koran. Koran still shocked will not tap, and the weakened Storm is still trying to lock the hold in tighter. Finally Jacobs gets up from his seat, and looks down at Storm, and wags his finger at him like saying no no. He then kicks Storm right in the head, and Storm quickly releases the hold. Jacobs looks at Koran who has been pretty much taken advantage of. Jacobs still wants no part of Koran though knowing the big man could get the advantage at anytime, so he turns his attention again to Storm who is on the ground. Jacobs picks up Storm, and does a short arm clothesline that sends Storm flat on the mat. He then picks up Storm, and locks in the Ace of Spades, Storm wants no part of this move, and he quickly drops to his knees, and when Peter Jacobs lets go Storm exits the ring. He then puts his hands out saying I dont need this, and he starts to go to the back!
Doc Adams: What is Storm doing? This is not like him, what is going on with one part of the tag team champions!!!
Jim Taylor: Again another wrestler using their brain, and making sure they watch out for themselves, there is nothing wrong with that!!!
Just like that though Storm is gone, and now Jacobs has to mess with the big man Koran who is already just on one leg. As Jacob turns around Koran is already up on his good leg, and he is trying to stand on the bad leg. Jacobs just starts kicking at the bad leg while Koran continues to try and punch Jacobs. Jacobs then changes up his strategy, and kicks the good leg. Koran can barely stand, and finally Jacobs kicks Koran right on the knee cap, and Koran can no longer stand. He goes down to one knee, and Peter Jacobs quickly locks in the Ace of Spades! Jacobs drags the body of Koran to the middle of the ring, and he lazily goes for the pin, One, Two, THHHHHRRREEEEEEE!!!!!!
Jacobs rolls off of Koran and looks down at his handy work. He then just kicks Koran out of the ring again, and before Lindsay Monohan can say the winner he grabs the mic from her!
Doc Adams: This is becoming common procedure for him today.
Peter Jacobs: I have told you that I am tired of dealing with this crap. You are going to realize that I am the baddest man walking this earth, and I dont care where I have to go to prove this. I am from Texas! And down there we are snuff chewing, ass kicking, deer hunting, son of a bitches, and I love my fat ass wife, I love my damn overweight kids!!! If any of you idiots in the back think they can take money out of my pocket you will be sorely mistaken! Peter Jacobs is here to stay, and if you dont like it, come into this ring, and try and shut me up!
The screens in the arena flicker black and then white, the lights in the arena continue to come in and out. Everyone is confused not knowing what is going on. Darkness by Disturbed starts to play in the arena as the crowd is still silent and now stunned by the ominous music.
As the music continues to flow the arena a picture of Grandes mask flashes across the screen, and the crowd gets anxious almost excited to see the big man back. Nothing comes out though, and the flash was just quick, but again the mask flashes on the screen, and again the people get excited. Grande does not come out though, but the lights in the arena stay dark as the music plays across the arena, and then a face appears on screen, but it's shadowed, and you can not see it. Words start coming from the arena speakers.
My idenitity lost, my dignity replaced, all that is left now is the man, and soon the man will be revealed, and I will return
The CWAtron goes black again, and the music reaches a crescendo, the crowd is excited, and then before the lights turn on Grandes mask flashes on the screen again!
The match starts with both Kabel and Eddie Von Gunner talking smack to each other in the middle of the ring, as both are really cocky and confident in their wrestling abilities. Kabel tries to psyche Gunner out with his muscles by flexing them and trying to intimidate him with his power game, but Gunner keeps flipping his hair in Kabel's face, making a few faces as well. Kabel has a grin on his face as he points to Gunner before looking out to the crowd, as if to say that he's no match for him. Suddenly Gunner strikes first with a punch to the head but Kabel doesn't even flinch as he looks back at Gunner, who fires off with punches and elbows to the midsection of Kabel. Kabel just gets angry after a few punches and elbows as he just headbutts Gunner right on his head! Gunner immediately goes down as Kabel takes his time picking Gunner up. Gunner however brings his arms around in a circle, breaking Kabel's hold on him as he connects with a dropkick to the knee! Kabel drops to one knee as Gunner connects with a spinning shin kick to the head before running back towards the ropes, bouncing off them as he jumps onto Kabel's shoulders, going for the hurricanrana! Kabel however stands his ground, holding on to Gunner's legs as he pulls Gunner back up, before connecting with a sit-out powerbomb, covering him for the pin!
Gunner kicks out as he tries to sit out, only to have Kabel shove him back down onto his back again. Kabel is up on his feet, stomping all over Gunner's body as he rolls over to the ropes, hanging on to the bottom one for dear life as Kabel will not stop, the referee counting to five! Just after the count of four Kabel steps away from Gunner and confronts the referee, butting heads as he backs him up, the referee obviously intimidated. Just as Kabel turns around however, Gunner is there to catch him with a dropsault! Kabel stumbles back a few steps as he grabs his chin, Gunner quick to follow up with an enzuigiri that sends Kabel rocking backwards! Gunner has some momentum going his way as he steps all the way back, Kabel shuffling around as Gunner comes running towards him, connecting with a spinning wheel kick that sends Kabel down to the canvas!
Gunner finally gets some offense in on Kabel as Gunner does not want to let Kabel get back up on his feet, doing whatever he can to keep him grounded. Gunner stomps and punches and elbows the hell out of Kabel, until the referee has to separate Gunner away from Kabel. Gunner shoves the referee behind him as the referee goes flying into the ropes neck first, coughing heavily as he is momentarily distracted. Gunner walks over to Kabel who is now on his knees but Kabel, seeing the referee turned the other way, low blows Gunner! Gunner definitely did not see that coming as he grabs his crotch before sinking down to his knees, Kabel connecting with a power clothesline that sends Gunner down onto his back. Kabel is a few feet away from Gunner as he holds his arms up in the air, imagining that he's already the winner of this match. Kabel turns around as he sees Gunner running towards him who is going for the clothesline but Kabel ducks underneath and lifts him up into the air, before slamming him down in a spinebuster!
Kabel now takes his time with Gunner, in no hurry at all. After a few seconds of showboating and doing nothing he finally picks Gunner back up, grabbing him in a suplex position as he appears to be setting up for the Kabel Driver! Gunner however fights back with several kicks to the knees of Kabel, weakening him enough for Kabel's grip on Gunner to be released. Gunner turns around, grabbing Kabel's head as he wants to go for the Shiranui! Just as Gunner starts to run towards the corner Kabel doesn't move, Gunner knowing that he's in deep trouble as Kabel turns him around, kneeing him right in the stomach before putting him in a suplex position, lifting him up between the legs before....
Kabel absolutely demolishes Gunner with the Kabel Driver as Kabel just steps on Gunner's chest for the pin.
Lindsay Monahan: Winner of the match in 10 minutes and 15 seconds. KABEL!!!!!!
As soon as Lindsay gets those words out Orlando Maxwell comes out from the backstage area, and you hear his voice first before he comes out.
Orlando Maxwell: Excuse me ladies and Gentlemen I must speak to that man in the ring, yes Kabel I am talking about you. I have looked at you for the past three months, and when we decided to open Pride and Honor you were one of the few wrestlers I actually wanted on my roster. I love your aggression, I love your passion, and I love the way you destroy people!! I sit in my office everyday looking at you and wondering what I could do to further my brightest star here in the Pride and Honor, and I have just the very thing for you. Kabel if you continue to tear through opponents, if you can continue to win, I will give you a shot at our upcoming PPV Pride to get your hands on your first Pride and Honor Championship! You will get a chance at Clint Shepard, of course if he still carries the title, and get your chance at the International Championship!! I believe that you are the future of our company, and it is now time for you to shine on a bigger level. Kabel welcome to your next big break!!!
The camera pans to Kabel who is chopping at the bit. He looks excited, and he looks down at the fallen Eddie Von Gunner. He picks up Gunner, and looks at Orlando Maxwell, and he picks up Gunner, and delivers another Kabel Driver. He gets up, placing his hand on Gunner and points to Orlando Maxwell, and then wraps an imaginary title around his waist. Orlando Maxwell looks happy as he goes back through the curtain.
Before the bell rings, Truth does a quick throat slash directed at Stone, but Rich just stands there, hands flailing by his sides, showing no intimidation. He even look a little sarcastic. The bell goes and they circle the ring before locking up. Truth takes Stone into a Side Headlock, before transitioning into a waistlock, and then grabbing Stones arm and applying an armlock. Stone grabbed Truths head from the front, and when Truth let go of his arm, he took him into a headlock.
Cyrus springs Stone off the ropes and goes for a hip toss, but Stone lands on his feet and hits a Neckbreaker. He mounts Truth and hits a few punches, before springing off the ropes and hitting a High Jumping Knee Drop.
....1....2....Kick Out by TruthStone doesnt get flustered, but instead pick Truth back up and springs him off the ropes. He looks for a Spinebuster, but Truth turns it around and hits a Tornado DDT! Truth crawls to the ropes, as does Stone. Stone runs at Truth, but gets hit with a clothesline. Cyrus hits another, then another, before landing a Jumping Cutter! Stone rolls out of the ring, but doesnt get the rest he was looking for because Truth hits a Suicide Dive on him!The referee has no idea whats going on, and starts asking Truth. However Cyrus just smiles BEFORE LOCKING ON A CROSS ARMBREAKER ON THE BAD ARM! He really wrenches on the arm, and it look like hes almost broken it! Stone has no choice but taps out!!!!!!!
When both men recover, they trade left and rights before Truth stumbles and goes against the barrier. Stone walks at him, BUT TRUTH LIFTS HIM UP AND DROPS STONE RIGHT ON THE BARRICADE ARM FIRST! Truth rolls Stone back into the ring, before locking on an armbar. Stone screams in pain, but tries to get to the ropes. When hes close, Truth stands back up, drags him back to the middle of the ring, and locks on the armbar again. Stone eventually gets to the ropes, but you can see his arm is hurting him. He manages to land a few punches with his good arm, but misses the discus clothesline. When Cyrus turns around though, Stone lands a kick on him and goes for the Franchise Tag- But no! His arm fails on him!
Cyrus sees the advantage and quickly begins to work on the arm, applying submission holds and attacking it. He even throws Stone into the ring post with the arm, and you can see the pain Stone is going through. Truth locks on a back armlock, and really wrenches it in, when out of nowhere he hits the Shattered Pride! Truth doesnt let off though, as out of nowhere he picks Stone up and JOURNEYS END!!!!!!! COVER:
....1....2....Truth lifts Stones arm up? Whats going on here?
Here is your winner at Ten Minutes and Fourteen Seconds Cyrus Truth!Truth celebrates, but Stone doesnt look it a god shape. He can barely move the arm, and the medics have to come in and look at it. They tape a little bit of the arm, before helping him backstage. Unlucky for Rich Stone.
We fade into the jam packed arena in Jefferson as the latest edition of PNH High Voltage is here and live! Suddenly a huge fireworks show explodes all over the stage; at the end of it the fans are on their feet and cheering as the pyro was spectacular, then Flashing Lights hits and it all turns into boos. Then out walks the World Heavyweight Champion, Mr. Showtime! He carries the Championship in one hand and a microphone in the other, and dressed in a fine suit.
Mr. Showtime: Are you booing the fact that I'm here, or that I'm STILL!!!.....World Heavyweight Champion?
Showtime smiles as the boos grow louder after the ridiculous question that he just asked. Then he starts to laugh to himself as he makes his way towards the ring.
Mr. Showtime: Well that isn't really that relevant, because you're getting both. I'm here....and I'm STILL!!!.....World Heavyweight Champion. Because previously on High Voltage, two things happened; number one, in my very first title defense, not even a week after I won it back, I successfully defend it against the Barely Living Legend, Clint Shepard. Easily a five star classic in everyone's opinion.
The fans acutally begin to applaud in agreement.
Mr. Showtime: But enough about me, I guess the match was ok as well.
Showtime bursts into laughter as the fans boo some more. Showtime walks up the steps and onto the apron, then he enters the ring.
Mr. Showtime: But something about that match really pissed me off. Even though the fact that I retained the Championship was a glorious site to behold, but when it was over, dumb people just like you who live in Madison.....were clapping for Clint Shepard. Seriously?.....Seriously? Applauding a man after losing the biggest match of his life; when did Clint Shepard become a Jamaican bobsledder or a US Women's soccer player? I'm sick of people cheering for the lovable loser!
Showtime puts the title and microphone down as he takes off his jacket and loosens his tie. Then he picks the title and micrphone up.
Mr. Showtime: It makes me sick! Tipping your cap to someone who tried and failed! But enough about that; the second thing that happened that night in Madison, Novakain became number one contender for my World Title.
There is a mixed reaction amoung the fans, but the slight majority seems to be cheering.
Mr. Showtime: That's right, I have to step into the ring with a man who is fit for a straight jacket; and not only that, but he has a huge 'N' stitched on the front of it. And I just bet that this man thinks that he can come down to this ring, say what he needs to say, and make me nervous; but if he tried that...it wouldn't work for a micro-second. And I also bet that he thinks he can be more sadistic than I am, so he thinks he has an edge over me. Well pop quiz hot-shot, who's the guy standing in the ring that loves to give men the red carpet treatment? And if you don't know what I mean by red carpet treatment, look it up! I don't have time to explain it. So Super Nove, Nova Scotia, whoever the hell you are. When the white coats decide to let you out for 48 hours, I'll see you inside this ring, and I'll have a first class beatdown ready for ya.
Showtime drops the microphone and picks his jacket off the canvas. He's about to exit the ring when suddenly, Ride the Lightning hits, and out comes the #1 Contender! He walks through the curtain and holds up there with a microphone in hand.
Novakain: I'm glad you were done, 'cause you need to shut the hell up, Francis.
Showtime stares at Nova for a few seconds, then he drops his jacket and picks the microphone back up.
Mr. Showtime: My mother called me Francis, and my friends called my Frank. But you're neither, so it's Mr. Showtime to you, jerk-off!
Novakain: Yeah, well, just shut up and listen, assh**e. Of course my goal is to beat you to a pulp and take the World Heavyweight Championship, but I want to do something else to you, Francis. I want to destroy your name; the name you've worked so hard to make and the only name that means anything, but it's not exactly what you think, Francis.
Mr. Showtime: Dude, why the hell do you keep calling me that!? My name is Mr. Show-
Novakain: Because, Francis! That's the name I want to destroy! The name that your mother bestowed upon you; because behind all of your nicknames, catch phrases, the bleach blonde hair, and your Mr. Showtime moniker....is a man. And, I want to destroy the man you are, so that the only thing that's left....is nothing that anyone gives a damn about or can even recognize. Just wait until I pull the trigger, Francis.
NovaKain smiles as he drops the microphone. He lifts his arm up as if he is going to hit Showtime, but Showtime just stands his ground, while NovaKain rolls out of the ring as his music hits.
Doc Adams:This is the match I have been waiting for all week. You can tell the crowd is ready for this epic main event of two great wrestlers!!
Jim Taylor: Who cares about these guys, I want to see NovaKain again not these two!!!
Jackson Sonik and Clint Shepard meet in the middle of the ring and shake hands, they also give each other hug, and a nod in sportsman ship. As they back up, Clint Shepard comes in with an amateur take down as he drops to his left knee, and tries to pick the ankle, to drop Sonik, but Sonik sees it coming and steps back. Clint Shepard tries again, but Sonik again just moves to his left. As Shepard gets up he locks up with Sonik, and they start a test of strength. Neither man has an edge and so after a couple of seconds of posturing they break, and then quickly go back to regain their advantage. This time Sonik takes the vantage point, and lowers his stance so he can try and gain leverage, but Shepard is to smart for this tactic, and he quickly breaks, not willing to give up the advantage. As they break Shepard goes and pulls on the ropes, and Jackson just rolls his neck. This time again Shepard shoots in on Sonik, and goes for a fireman carry on his knees which he completes, but Sonik is able to follow Shepards arm and locks in an arm lock on the way down. Shepard knowing well the amateur reversal he is caught in quickly gets up, and both men get back on their feet. On the bottom Axl Storm is cheering on his teammate. Sonik and Shepard get back up to their feet, and you see Shepard really impressed with the young kid, he gives Sonik another hand shake, and they circle each other again. This time Sonik grabs for the air, almost like he is trying to grab Shepards head, but Shepard just scoots back, and this time Sonik tries to shoot in, but as he shoots in, Shepard grabs a head lock, and Sonik just continues to push Shepard to the ropes, where Sonik grabs the ropes, and the ref asks for the break, and of course Shepard releases the hold, and Sonik just steps back. This time Sonik grabs Shepard, and whips him into the ring ropes, Shepard comes rebounding back, and Sonik does a beautiful leap frog, and Shepard goes under him, Shepard rebounds back, and Sonik goes on the ground so Shepard goes over him, on the rebound again, Sonik puts his head down for a back body drop, and Shepard just rolls off of Soniks back, and is on his feet, Sonik turns around and both men at the same time decide to throw punches at each other, but both stop their punches for anything connects. The crowd is loving the wrestling they are seeing, and start giving the two a standing ovation!
Doc Adams: This is what Pride and Honor wrestling is all about. These two men are putting on a showcase right now!!!!
Both men circle each other again, and meet in the center of the ring, though this time Shepard comes in with a clothesline, and Sonik ducks it by going down, and trying to sweep Shepard at the same time, and Shepard understands what is going on, and he jumps over the sweep. Sonik gets up, and tries to clothesline Shepard, but Shepard grabs on to the arm, and does a flying arm bar. He drags Sonik to the ground, and just as quick as the maneuver is locked in Sonik grabs the ropes, and again Shepard breaks the hold, and Sonik gets up shaking his arm again, and Shepard looks at Sonik and says this close. Sonik just laughs and shrugs. Both men again just meet in the middle of the ring, and lock up once again, but this time Sonik lets go of the lock up, and then slides down, and grabs the leg of Shepard, and he drags Shepard to the ground, and locks in a leg lock. Right as Sonik locks in the leg lock, Shepard reaches for the ropes, and again Sonik releases the hold, and he does the same thing to Shepard as he tells him almost. Shepard does the same thing also and shrugs his head. No man has been able to get an advantage though, and both seem just as fresh as the match started. They lock up again, and this time Shepard goes for a head lock. As Sonik is in the head lock he picks up Shepard for a back body drop, and lifts him over his head, Shepard holds on to the head lock, and lands on top of Sonik, the referee doesnt even have time to count as Sonik already kicks out of the pinning predicament, but Shepard holds on a front face lock, and he wrenches it in. Sonik is really in no trouble, but he is holding on to Shepards weight. Sonik gets on his knees, and as he is in the front face lock Shepard delivers a knee right to the head of Sonik, and Sonik goes down almost limp. Shepard sees that one knee might have knocked him out so he goes for the pin, but Storm gets on the ring apron, and distracts the referee while Shepard is on top of the limp Sonik. Shepard gets up in the face of Storm, and tells him to get out of here. Storm shakes his head no, and Shepard ignores him, and goes for the pin again. This time the referee follows, and he gets One, two, th, the distraction was enough as Sonik kicks out. Shepard lifts up the groggy Sonik, and whips him into the turnbuckle, and follows in with a nasty European Uppercut that sends spit flying into the air as Soniks head goes straight up. Shepard knowing he needs more, puts Sonik sitting on the top turnbuckle, and he walks to the other end of the ring.
Doc Adams: I think he is going for the top rope belly to belly suplex! That knee right to the head really took a lot out of Sonik, he still looks knocked out.
Jim Taylor: Isnt a knee to the head illegal?
Doc Adams: In MMA it is, but this is professional wrestling its as legal as a headlock!!
Shepard comes running to the other turnbuckle, but when he is halfway there he sees Sonik standing up, and then with his feet on the second turnbuckle he jumps up, and delivers a nice looking drop kick to the head of the champion!!! Clint Shepard just goes down like he was shot, and on the outside Storm is cheering on his partner. Sonik goes down to where Shepard is for the pin, One, two, thrr, but the champ kicks out of the pin, and the crowd lets out a huge gasp. Quickly Sonik locks in a head lock of his own on the ground, but he does his where he starts giving elbows to the chest of Shepard, he gives about three or four, and then he locks in the head lock tighter, and repeats the process. He finally thinks that Shepard is ready for the pin, and he goes and tries for the pin, One, two, thhh Shepard kicks out again showing the heart of a champion. Sonik knowing this wasnt going to be easy shows no emotion, and he just picks up the champion, and puts whips him into the ropes where he connects with a nice Plant We Can All Enjoy, and he quickly goes for the pin, One, two, thrr, but again Shepard kicks out, and the crowd is going crazy with this match as both men start sweating, and giving all they can for the fans. Sonik goes to the ring ropes waiting for Shepard to get back on his feet. As Shepard gets on his feet, Sonik goes for the Super Sonik, Shepard is able to get his bearings, because as Sonik is up in the air upside down, Shepard clotheslines Sonik and Sonik just explodes down to the ground, Sonik saw the clothesline coming, but could do nothing about it in the air, and Shepard goes for the pin, One, two, thrrrrrrrrr, Sonik kicks out, but by the skin of his teeth, and Shepard you can tell is getting tired especially from his last match just two weeks ago with the champion. He knows if this match goes much longer he may not make it out. So with Sonik still dazed Shepard goes for an Ankle Lock, and this wakes up Sonik quickly as the sharp pain in his ankle makes his scream in pain, but he doesnt panic, and just rolls on his back, and kicks Shepard off of him. Shepard getting a little desperate quickly kicks Sonik in the face, and then moves back and waits so he can execute the License to Kill, Sonik gets up, and Shepard quickly explodes into the hold, but Sonik escapes, and gets behind Shepard, and he tries to lift Shepard up in a back suplex, but again this is a move that Shepard is very aware of, and he switches with Sonik, and then he goes for the his three back suplex combo. He hits the first one, and the crowd is just going insane for this action! He goes for the second one, and completes it. He rolls through, and tries to finish the combo, but Sonik grabs the leg of Shepard, and is able to roll him up into a sunset flip. One, two, thrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre, but Shepard barely pulls him out and he sends Sonik to the corner where Storm is at. Storm gets on the apron yelling at the referee!! Sonik doesnt know what is going on, and Shepard just grabs Sonik and throws him into the ring ropes, the referee is not listening to Storm, but Storm is still on the ring apron yelling. Shepard goes down to the mat, and this time Sonik runs right into Storm on the apron, Storm goes flying to the floor, and Sonik is stumbling, and he stumbles right into the License to Kill!, Shepard goes down for the pin, One, two threeeee!!!!!!
Doc Adams: NOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Storm may have cost his partner the International Title!!!! What a performance by both men, but Storm may have cost his partner the match!!!
Jim Taylor: I dont know it looked like Sonik was out anyways before he got to Storm, it almost looked like he attacked Storm on purpose!
Doc Adams: What are you talking about you idiot!!! It was an accident!!!
Lindsay Monahan: Winner of the match in 18 minutes and 22 seconds, and still International Champion!!! CLLLIIINNNTTTT SSSSHHHHEEEPPPPARRRRDDDD!!!!
Clint Shepard gets the title, and celebrates his victory on the ring ropes. Sonik is still down, and Shepard goes to him, and grabs his hand, and lifts him up. He then shakes Soniks hand, and gives him a big hug. Both men celebrate in the middle of the ring as the crowd gives both men a standing ovation, and then Storm comes sliding into the ring, and he grabs Sonik, and starts to argue with him. Shepard goes to pull Storm off, but Storm just decks Shepard to the mat, and the title goes flying to the left ring corner. Sonik and Storm are still arguing, mostly Storm wanting to know why he was hit again. Sonik says he didnt do it on purpose, and then he starts to scold Sonik again. This time Storm grabs the mic!
Axl Storm: Sonik if you were paying attention you would have been the new International Champion!!!! You knew I was on the ring apron trying to defend you, and you smashed right into me!!!!
Sonik just shakes his head no, and as that is happening, Shepard gets up, and gets right into Storms face, they are talking at each other while Storm is still holding the mic.
Storm: Youre lucky!! Youre a damn paper champion, and you dont deserve to hold that. Sonik couldnt beat you, but I know I can!
Clint Shepard: So thats why you sucker punched me!!!!???? If you want a shot at my title you and me next week on High Voltage I will kick your ass all over this arena, and show that you are no where near my level!!
Storm: I will do what Jackson Sonik couldnt do!!!!
Sonik gets in the middle of them and tries to break them apart, both men are still going at each other as the High Voltage logo is plastered over the television screen.
