    CWA Adrenaline Rush: Live from Tampa Bay, Florida

    Before the show begins highlights from Retribution are shown as the theme plays throughout...



    Merriwether is back up now and charges at Dreamer with a clothesline, but Dreamer ducks it in time causing Merriwether to fall over the ropes landing on the apron. Dreamer senses an opportunity as he runs at Merriwether, but Merriwether was ready as he drills him with a forearm strike knocking him back right into a spinning roundhouse kick from Bennett! Merriwether climbs back in the ring but he’s caught by Bennett with a running knee strike to the midsection doubling him over allowing him to club Merriwether on the back and now he has Merriwether reeling on the rope with several chops to the chest before sending him over to the apron…

    Jim Taylor: Bennett may have his one in the bag!

    Tim Coleman: Not if Dreamer has anything to say about it!

    Dreamer sneaks behind Bennett clubbing him with a running forearm strike that knocks Bennett into Merriwether, who falls off the apron to the outside…

    MARK MERRIWETHER HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

    After several strikes that have Bennett stunned, Dreamer tosses him over but Bennett lands on the apron. Dreamer charges at him, but Bennett drills him with a forearm strike knocking him back and before Bennett can get back in he’s distracted as Merriwether talking trash to him. Dreamer has recovered and uses this as an opportunity to knock Bennett off the apron for the win!

    MARCUS BENNETT HAS BEEN ELIMINATED AND THE WINNER OF THE MATCH, DUSTIN DREAMER!

    Dreamer celebrates his victory much to the dismay of the fans, while on the outside Bennett and Merriwether are slugging it out before being broken up by more officials…
    Edwards has the hold applied now and LB is now fighting the urge not to quit as Himawari shouts encouragement to him from ringside while he reaches out with everything he’s got and he clings on for dear life! Edwards brings LB up and sends him off the ropes catching him with a high knee strike. Now Edwards climbs up top looking for a flying elbow drop…BUT LB ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! Elijah crashes and burns as he rolls around in agony clutching his elbow as LB rolls to feet now in the corner urging Elijah to rise up and as Elijah rises up to one knee LB charges in at him looking for a knee strike…but Elijah was playing possum as he counters…WINTER DREAMS! He has it applied and LB is trapped now as Elijah stretches back hoping LB will just tap!

    Jim Taylor: He had that well scouted and LIGHTBRINGER may very well be in danger now!

    LB is doing everything in his power to fend off the attack and finally after several slaps Elijah releases the hold. Both men lay on the mat absolutely spent, but Elijah is stirring first as he rises up and now goes for the Excellent Execution but LB is well aware enough to kick him away to the ropes allowing LB time to recover. LB is up now and brings Elijah in for the LIGHTBRINGER lariat, but Elijah ducks underneath in time and looks for a short arm clothesline but LB catches it…FLYING ARMBAR! Smack dab in the center of the ring LB has it locked in tight with no intentions of letting go and Elijah holding back to submit refusing to give up but eventually he succumbs to the pain and must submit!

    Lindsay Monahan: The winner of the match and NEW High Voltage Champion, LIGHTBRINGER!

    Jim Taylor: What a technical clinic from these two and there will no doubt be a rematch between them soon!

    LB takes the championship and holds it up high for the fans to see as Himawari enters the ring and hugs him. LB glances over at Elijah, who is having trouble getting to his feet as he holds his arm and LB walks over and helps him up and extends his hand out for handshake to which Elijah obliges. The fans cheer for the good sportsmanship as Elijah walks away with Romeo allowing LIGHTBRINGER to have his moment
    Amanda is shaking Lawton back to life, and after a few moments he slides a twenty foot ladder into the ring, going in after it. He looks as if he’s ready to climb, but Ethan Connor has finally made it back to his feet. Connor rocks Lawton with a dropkick, and Nick stumbles backwards, almost falling over the ladder, which remains unopened on the mat. Ethan and Nick begin to trade forearms, their feet in the holes between the rungs of the ladder. After a handful of forearms, Connor takes a shortcut with an eye rake… Lawton stumbles again, turning away from Ethan… Connor seizes the opportunity, leaping into the air…

    Tim Coleman: REVERSE HURRICANRANA!

    Jim Taylor: Nick Lawton’s head is spiked off of that ladder! He crumples into a heap and rolls under the bottom rope!

    Ethan takes the opportunity to set up the twenty foot ladder, right underneath the championship belts… But Ben Bruce has other ideas, rolling under the bottom rope and hitting a HUGE European uppercut before Ethan can start climbing… Connor stumbles backwards, SUPERKICK! But Bruce remains on his feet, his face a brutal crimson mask, and then fires back with an even bigger European Uppercut! Both men fall to the mat, breathing heavily as the crowd reaches fever pitch…

    Ethan kips up back to his feet stumbling back a little when Amanda slips in the ring behind Ethan and goes for what looks like a lowblow, but she keeps her grip on Ethan's nether regions as he howls out in pain before being dropped on his head with a BALLS-PLEX! Amanda looks pleased with her handy work as she turns around...SUPERKICK! Drew, somehow is still standing and clobbers Amanda with a superkick.

    Tim Coleman: That will teach her to stick her nose in other people's business!

    Drew helps Ethan back up, who is still clutching his groin and they notice Ben rising up before delivering an IN STEREO SUPERKICK taking the big man off his feet and out of the equation. Nick is coming back to his senses as he rises up on the apron before Ethan drills him with a SUPERKICK knocking him off the apron to the outside while Drew is halfway up the ladder and Ethan follows suit as they both grab the tag team titles down from the ceiling...

    Lindsay Monahan: The winners of the match and NEW Tag Team Champions, The Echo!

    Jim Taylor: The Echo regains back their championships, but will the other half of The Indy Club walk out the Steel Roulette with his championship well we'll find out next!
    Various highlights of the main event are shown with eliminations of every competitor until it's down to McGinnis and Snowmantashi...

    McGinnis gets a shoulder up, and Snowmantashi looks to keep up the momentum with a German suplex… The Indy God fights out with a series of elbows, breaking the waistlock and sending Snowmantashi stumbling. McGinnis goes for a superkick, but the champion catches his foot and drags him into a fireman’s carry, perhaps going for a hailstorm. No – McGinnis drives the point of his elbow into Snowmantashi’s head until the champion drops him… SUPERKICK! Snowmantashi stumbles backwards, but he doesn’t go down. McGinnis goes for another superkick, but Snowmantashi catches his foot and hits him with a headbutt, and then a big drop kick! Both men hit the mat, physically exhausted, sucking in air as the match goes past the sixty minute mark…Snow is up and stalks McGinnis, who is groggy and Snow drags him to the corner and unleashes an unholy amount headbutts to McGinnis busting himself open as blood begins to trickle from his forehead. He takes a dazed McGinnis from the corner and hoists him up on his shoulders for Hailstorm, but McGinnis escapes it with several back elbows forcing Snow to drop him and McGinnis drills Snow from behind with a lowblow! Snow drops to his knees and now McGinnis staggers in front of Snow...SUPERKICK! Snow doesn't go down though...ANOTHER SUPERKICK! Snow still remains on his knees but obviously in a daze with his eyes glazed over telling McGinnis to bring it one more time and McGinnis more than happily obliges pointing his finger like a gun at Snow before pulling the trigger...SUPERKICK! The third superkick and Snow drops in a heap and McGinnis drops on top of him hooking the far leg…

    JON SNOWMANTASHI HAS BEEN ELIMINATED! THEREFORE THE WINNER OF THE MATCH & NEW CWA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, JONATHAN MCGINNIS!

    Tim Coleman: YES, HE'S DONE IT JIM!

    Jim Taylor: He went through hell to and Snow wouldn't go down until his last breath but we do have a new world champion, and his name is Jonathan McGinnis

    McGinnis is handed his championship and looks at as if it was a small child. He raises it up high for the booing crowd to see before exiting the ring a beaten, broken mess as he's met by the tag team champions The Echo who celebrate with him as they all throw up a 2 sweet and crotch chop the fans on stage as the show comes to a close.
    The video package ends with a shot of The Indy Club standing tall with their respective championships...



    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    After the logo is shown were taken to a brief recap of the mayhem that ensued at Retribution focusing on brief highlights of every match… The victory of Dustin Dreamer…. The technical marvel that was Lightbringer and E Double Elijah Edwards. The car crash that was the Ladder match between The Echo and The Moment and of course the carnage that was the steel roulette match with ended with Jonathan McGinnis standing in the middle of the ring and were taken to the arena and the intro pyro before were taken to our usual announce team

    Jim Taylor: Hello everyone and welcome to

    Jim Taylor is cut off…


    We see Tim Coleman lips moves but nothing comes from his mouth

    Tim Coleman: I….think….We…...Technical…..cults

    The screen begins to split apart and fracture until...lights out. All the screens turns black and were left with nothing….blackness….The screen stays that way until eventually a single image begins to appear on our screens.










    And just like that, were taken back to the CWA arena yet again but the camera image had become grainy distorted and filmed with a black and white filter as the camera turns in the direction of the stage where seemed to have been defiled and tainted by what appears to be black spray paint bearing messages such as “Indy Club > CWA” and “Jon Snowmantashi suck donkey dick” like the stage was nothing more than a big canvas for graffiti punks.

    ???: Do not adjust your sets, there is nothing wrong with your TV screens.

    The camera turns in the direction of the voice which is emanating from high above the stage setting where a large propaganda podium stands with several microphones sitting on it clearly connected to the PA system, and standing behind the podium is the lawyer and spokesperson for the Indy Club is Celina Sasha looking down at the audience both literally and physically clad in her finest business jacket and “Hail The Club” T-Shirt








    Celina Sasha: I stand before you today, humbled and proud and privilege to serve as the advocate for the only true super power in sports today. A brotherhood formed from men who refused to be SHEEP. Refused to sit back and wait their turn. Who vowed to reap, and pillage the wrestling world of what was rightfully there’s. They came. They saw. The CONQUERED. CWA isn’t yours anymore. It’s ours. WE are in control. WE make the rules, WE have changed the face of the wrestling world and now CWA is our prize. They doubted us, They told us we were all talk. That we couldn’t back up our words but the single most dominating force this company has ever seen took your heroes best and every single one of them was put to the sword. And those that thought that were in power were brought to their knees. We seek power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently.


    Celina Sasha: We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites….The Elite. The Brotherhood….Each and everyone one of them has been wiped out of history after last night but we know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power! And for you? There will be no joy, no hero that’ll come to save you. Any resistance will be destroyed. And every thing you think that you’ll be saved, The Indy club will remind you of your place each and every time If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot super-kicking all your faces forever, and once this company learns they can’t stop us each and every one of them will have no choice but to hail power. Hail the FUTURE. HAIL THE REVOLUTION. HAIL. THE. INDY. CLUB






    The reaction to the Indy Club’s music is less like heat and more like full scale riot with the amount of hate being thrown their way but after awhile out saunters out The NEW, yes NEW CWA World tag team champions Drew and Ethan Connor saunters onto the stage-Well, Drew is limping slightly the price he pays for jumping off a ten foot ladder through a table- looking much more happy and smug then they have the last few weeks now that they have their titles back, they retreat back each side of the stage looking out at the sea booing fans with proud smirks at their faces as they shout and scream over them “We told you so!” constantly pointing to their belts and waving their faces in the air as if inviting the crowd to get louder and louder which they happily oblige while they dance around on the stage doing their earthly best to piss off the crowd before they move more to the center of the stage they cast one last smug look to the crowd before they both clique point to the entrance. Out from behind the curtain, the NEW!!! CWA World Heavyweight Champion, "The Indy God" Jonathan McGinnis. With the most prestigious championship draped over the shoulder of McGinnis as he steps out. Wearing a Indy Club shirt, and jeans, he walks down the ramp and the crowd just hates all this. McGinnis has went from the most loved wrestler on the roster to the most hated in such a short period of time. Showing the battle scars of not only surviving but winning the first ever Steel Roulette match. He walks towards the ring and is smiling from ear to ear, taking a stroll around the ring, in the best effort to just rub in the fans face that he is the NEW!! and 2x CWA World Heavyweight Champion, thus proving that he was right all along. He enters the ring and gives his Indy Club buds a TOO SWEET!!! As the three of them hold up the their CWA titles, which puts them in such a powerful position within the ranks of the CWA. McGinnis grabs microphones and hand them out to The Club, but turning towards the crowd.

    Jonathan McGinnis: What a difference, a day makes, huh.....

    He looks at Ethan and Drew who give a chop chop to the fans as it is all just a celebratory mood.

    Jonathan McGinnis: Hate to say we told ya so.... but.....

    Drew Connor::....WE F**KING TOLD YOU SO!

    The crowd could see it coming a mile away but the heat is still massive as Drew finishes up the line patting his reclaimed prize on his shoulder


    Ethan Connor: Oh yeah, that’s it dick licks, boo it up. Every single boo just makes our collective boner, so much more powerful.


    "BOOOOOO!!"


    Drew Connor: Well, don’t boo after the concept, you weirdos.

    Ethan Connor: ...Perverts….

    Drew Connor: ….Freaks, Wrestling fans man…

    Ethan Connor: Oh what? You guys mad? You Surprised? Did you DOUBT us? Did you DOUBT that the most dominating trio this sport has ever seen wouldn’t back up every single word we said? Did you DOUBT that the finest wrestler in the world wouldn’t walk through fire to bring the World Heavyweight title home? Did you REALLY think that The Moment stood any chance against us! You just don’t get it do you?! We call ourselves the best because we ARE the best. We have these belts because we’ve everything we SAY we are. We don’t brag. We state facts. And the fact that we prove time and time again that you can put us against any team you want and but in a straight fight when the pressure is on and the lights are on bright. We DON’T make mistakes. Because we ALWAYS win. We are FASTER. We are TOUGHER. We are BETTER and we’ve just going keep rubbing everyone’s face in it. You line them all up and we will set them all down. Why? Because we Can!”

    Jonathan McGinnis: Together, we had a plan, a set goal to do what many thought was impossible. In one night, we took CWA and made it ours.... and now we stand here, and make this ours, we make this all ours. Who would of thought that it would of came together so quickly, but when you are the best at what you do, things just come easily.

    Drew Connor: We’ve at the top of the marquee just where we belong when we walk out onto that stage, it just like Sea World because the entire front row gets wet

    Ethan smirks and nods clearly loving the idea of being the main attraction

    Ethan Connor: “We’ve taken over the world, who's going to stop us huh? Lightbringer? Is Lightbringer coming to come jogging out? Is Johnny Vegas going to come waltzing down just so we could stick that silver spoon right down moneybags mainstreet? Oh how about MVH? Huh? Is that tiny broad have a problem with us?

    Drew Connor: If she does come down here, she better be coming down with sandwiches from the kitchen….

    Ethan Connor: ...And we can give her the meat later

    McGinnis with a smirk on his face.

    Jonathan McGinnis: Speaking of meat..... Snowmantashi.... I have HUGE!! news for him. Hey, you guys want to hear, this massive, I mean massive news, that involes, the former champ?

    McGinnis looks over to The Echo as he asks them the question.

    Ethan Connor: “Oh this ought to be good…”

    Drew Connor: “Did Free Willy manage to jump the rock wall?”

    Jonathan McGinnis: Well, you know how that coward refused to give me my rightful rematch for MY championship. And how he forced me to go through hell just to get it... I mean, now that I'm champion, how long should I make him wait till I feel like giving him his rematch? Should I make him wait as long as I did, I mean, months. Or hell maybe years, maybe, Snowmantashi gets his rematch at Five Star Attraction 2019? Because he will be waiting for a long time, because he will get a nice taste of how he treated me... and I hope he gets himself a nice mouthful of the dose of his own medicine... so how many years, should, Snowmantashi wait for....?

    Ethan Connor: Well to be honest I don’t think he, HAS years…

    Drew Connor: Cholesterol has to be a bitch. He’s due for a heart attack any day now. I mean why SHOULD we have to defend any of these titles, I say we just sit back relax and have people PROVE they’re worthy of a shot. We had to jump through a TON of hoops to get these belts. Now, we turn the tables. Let all of those dorks just crawl over each other to get to us for all we care.......

    Jonathan McGinnis: Yeah. I mean, I think, my first official title defense...... should be in like four to five month's time. Till then, it will be apart of me... everywhere I go, it goes, if I got a couple of naught bitches in the room, you best believe, it will be there with me. But, to the point of future opponents, I think, no one is worthy, but that is what I believe. No Richman can tell us, who we face for OUR titles, for our championships, they belong to us and not the CWA, all the gold in this ring belong, to the INDY CLUB!

    The Indy Club stand tall in the ring as the sight of them covered in gold just gets under the skin of the CWA Universe. Backstage watching from a monitor is CWA's own Megan Anderson and she does not look happy at all.


    Jim Taylor: Well fans, that was our usual introduction to tonight's show, but I wouldn't expect anything less from The Indy Club.

    Tim Coleman: That was one of the better show openers I've seen in some time if you ask me.


    Jim Taylor: Good thing no one asked you Tim. Anyways, we have great action lined up for you fans tonight and we'll kick off with a grudge match as Mark Merriwether will face off with Marcus Bennett. It all started at Retribution after Merriwether cost Bennett that battle royal to earn a shot at the High Voltage championship, well tonight Bennett gets a shot at revenge, and earlier this evening these two had a bit of a confrontation backstage...

    The scene opens up to Mark Merriwether talking to an official named Stan backstage. He doesn't look too happy and is holding a bottle of water.

    Mark Merriwether: I told you mineral water, Phil! What the hell is this, Phil?!

    Phil the Official: Um...spring water. I get mineral water on such short notice, we only have spring water supplied. And my name is Stan, by the way.

    Mark Merriwether: Spring water, Phil?! Do you know who I am, Phil?! When I ask for mineral water I get mineral water, Phil! I'm walking royalty here, Phil! Is that going to be a problem, Phil? Can I get an apology, Phil? If it is I'll just beat it out of you like I'm going to beat it out of Marcus Bennett later tonight!

    ???: Oh, is that what is gonna happen, Merriwether?

    The voice comes from across the way, as Marcus Bennett just happened to be walking by when he overheard. He's wearing his usual ring tights that say "Crippler" on the back.

    Marcus:
    If I wasn't mistaken you were saying you were gonna... beat me?

    Bennett gives a little chuckle and a smile, not really intimidated. Merriwether gets up close in his face and just smiles arrogantly.

    Mark Merriwether:
    As a matter of fact I did. Well, I can save you the humiliation and you can apologize right here right now for eliminating ME!

    Merriwether gives another arrogant, rather confident, smile. Bennett looks Merriwether up and down, before wiping the smile off of his own face.

    Bennett:
    You'd like that... but I think I'd rather make you tap, Mark.

    Bennett looks him dead in the eyes, speaking with all seriousness. Merriwether starts laughing in a condescending way.

    Merriwether: I heard you speaking, but you're so damn boring I forgot to listen! All I heard was something about me making you tap! You know, our fight can be rescheduled.

    Merriwether raises his fist to punch Bennett, but at the last second he changes his mind and gives him a little tap on the cheek.

    Merriwether:
    You know what, I'll see you later tonight chump!

    ​Merriwether walks off rather confidently as Bennett stares at the back of him. He turns to Stan.

    Bennett:
    How about a water bottle, hm?

    No Holds Barred Grudge Match
    Marcus Bennett vs Mark Merriwether


    Lindsay Monahan: The following contest is set for one fall, introducing first…



    “Ace of Spades” hits and the crowd gives off a warm, positive reception for Marcus Bennett as he walks out at a normal pace while cracking his neck side to side and loosening up his wrists.

    Lindsay Monahan: Making his way to the ring from Mankato, Minnesota and wrestling out of Canton, Ohio. He stands at 5’11 and weighs in at 247lbs, “The Crippler” Marcus Bennett!

    Jim Taylor: Bennett made his debut at Retribution along with his opponent, and he’ll be looking to exact some retribution against after he feels he was unfairly eliminated thanks to Mark Merriwether

    Tim Coleman: Of course he blames someone other than himself. If he wouldn’t have got distracted than he wouldn’t have lost the match, simple as that! Never take your eyes off your opponent and Bennett learned that the hard way!

    Lindsay Monahan: And his opponent…



    “Hollywood” blares throughout the arena and the crowd showers Mark Merriwether with jeers as he arrogantly struts out and soaks in the hate as he taunts the fans and encourages them to boo louder.

    Lindsay Monahan: Making his way to the ring from Seattle, Washington and wrestling out of Hollywood, California. He stands at 6’0 and weighs in at 230lbs, “The Hollywood Standard” Mark Merriwether!


    Jim Taylor: Merriwether is just oozing confidence

    Tim Coleman: You would too if you were such a big A-list celebrity like him!

    Jim Taylor: A-list? You’re starting to sound as delusional as him!

    DING! DING! DING!

    Bennett and Merriwether square off with Mark having the slight height advantage standing over Marcus, and he begins trash talking to Bennett before slapping him and shoving him back eliciting more jeers. All this does is light a fire underneath Bennett as he fires back with a left forearm to the jaw that rocks Merriwether back into the corner where Bennett unleashes a flurry of chops to the chest leaving Merriwether’s chest beet red!

    Jim Taylor: Merriwether in a world of hurt right now!

    Merriwether is cringing in pain as he holds his chest and Bennett takes him from the corner and drops him with a snap suplex! Merriwether is up on one knee however Bennett is ready for him and catches him with a tiger suplex! Bennett isn’t through yet he takes Merriwether from behind once more with a huge German suplex into a bridge…

    1…
    2…

    NO!

    Merriwether kicks out and quickly rolls to the outside for a breather as he holds his head after being dropped on it. Bennett is not in the mood to fool around though as he launches himself through the ropes for a suicide dive, but Merriwether has it well scouted as he scoots out of the way in time causing Bennett to crash on the outside floor bouncing off the barricade as well.

    Jim Taylor: Bennett taking a nasty spill to the outside


    Tim Coleman: Maybe he knocked some sense into himself after that!

    Jim Taylor: Remember this is a no holds barred match, so anything goes

    Merriwether grabs Bennett and tosses him shoulder first into the steel steps causing a loud boom to echo through the building. Bennett clutches his shoulder in pain as Merriwether stalks him and grabs him by the head this time and viciously slams it down into the steel steps! Merriwether tosses Bennett back in the ring before hopping on the apron waiting for Bennett to get up and then launches himself into Bennett hitting a picture perfect springboard dropkick and now with the pin…

    1…
    2…
    NO!

    Bennett throws a shoulder up and right away Merriwether applies a side headlock keeping Bennett grounded before Bennett begins showing signs of life, and finds a way out of the headlock with a several back elbows to Merriwether’s midsection allowing Bennett to hit a low dropkick to the knee dropping Merriwether down. Bennett sets up Merriwether…SIT-OUT POWERBOMB INTO A PIN…

    1…
    2…
    NO!

    Merriwether kicks out once again and Merriwether rolls to his side on the mat as Bennett wills him on, and Merriwether is up now in a bit of a daze but charges at Bennett with a running double axe handle but Bennett is ready and catches him looking to lock in his cross-face submission yet Merriwether has the wherewithal to fight it off with several back elbows to the side of the head causing Bennett to stumble back some allowing Merriwether the opening…WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD!

    Jim Taylor: Superkick from Merriwether!

    Tim Coleman: He’s not finished yet…Hollywood Shuffle!

    Jim Taylor: Merriwether with the full-nelson suplex followed by a pin attempt

    1…
    2…
    NO!

    Bennett kicks out just in the nick of time and Merriwether is in disbelief as he argues with the referee telling him he needs to learn how to count. This allows Bennett time to recover as he sneaks up behind Merriwether with a quick roll up…

    1…
    2…
    NO!

    Merriwether kicks out now with a look of shock on his face that he was almost robbed of a victory. He pops back up and charges at Bennett for a clothesline but he’s caught…CROSS-FACE! Bennett has the cross-face submission applied! He cranks back on the neck but Merriwether grabs hold of the rope breaking the hold and Bennett begins to get frustrated as he climbs up looking to hit a diving head-butt as he signals for it…IT’S CAUGHT BY MERRIWETHER AS HE POPS UP AND HITS FINAL CUT!

    Jim Taylor: Brilliantly countered by Mark Merriwethwer with that jumping cutter!


    Tim Coleman: That was indeed brilliant and put a fork in Bennett, he’s done!

    Merriwether hooks the far leg…

    1…
    2…
    3!

    Lindsay Monahan: The winner of the match, Mark Merriwether!


    Jim Taylor: What a match that was, but that certainly was not the last we'll see these two square off!

    Mark rolls out of the ring basking in the glory if his first victory as he holds his head and raises his other arm up to a booing crowd, while inside the ring Bennett has come to and is furious as he slams his fist on the mat in anger.

    Highlights of a large man in action inside of a wrestling followed by highlights of another man performing various high-risk maneuvers until the clips are all mashed together into one followed by one solo image...

    High Voltage Championship Rematch
    Elijah Edwards w/Romeo Rollings vs LIGHTBRINGER w/Himawari
    w/ w/



    “Icky Thump” plays through the arena and Elijah Edwards steps out to a loud, positive ovation from the fans. Alongside him as usual is his agent Romeo Rollings, he’s giving Elijah a pep-talk while Elijah remains focused as they walk to the ring.

    Jim Taylor: Elijah Edwards did battle with LIGHTBRINGER at Retribution in a losing effort, but Elijah is looking to hopefully bounce back tonight and recapture the High Voltage championship




    The sound of “Rainmaker” fills the arena and the new High Voltage champion, LIGHTBRINGER, makes his way out to a great ovation from the fans. At his side is Himawari, who claps and rallies the fans behind LIGHTBRINGER as they walk to the ring.

    Jim Taylor: LIGHTBRINGER has been on a meteoric rise since arriving in CWA, and has no plans to stop.

    Tim Coleman: Not if Elijah Edwards has anything to say about it. You can tell by just looking at him that it’s eating him up inside that LIGHTBRINGER has his championship, and I can bet he’ll do anything it takes to win it back!


    LIGHTBRINGER stands in his corner removing his robe and hands it off to Himawari. Elijah stands in the opposite corner and Romeo is giving him some last minute advice as Lindsay Monahan steps in for the announcements.

    Lindsay Monahan: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the CWA High Voltage Championship!

    Loud pop from the fans for the introduction.

    Lindsay Monahan:
    Introducing first the challenger, he is accompanied by his agent Romeo Rollings. He is from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he stands at 6’4 and weighs in at 221lbs he is “Double E” Elijah Edwards!


    Another big pop from the fans for Elijah

    Lindsay Monahan: And his opponent, he is accompanied by his manager Himawari. He is from Tokyo, Japan and he is wrestling out of Tampa Bay, Florida, he stands at 6ft 3in and weighs in at 230lbs he is the current CWA High Voltage Champion, “Tokyo Kisai” LIGHTBRINGER!


    Big pop for LIGHTBRINGER and the mentioning that he resides in Tampa Bay, home of tonight’s Adrenaline Rush. He hands over his championship to referee Johnny Yamaguchi, who shows it to Elijah Edwards before displaying it to the fans and then hands it off to the time keeper and signals for the bell.

    DING! DING! DING!

    Tim Coleman:
    The crowd is electric for this match!


    Jim Taylor: They get to witness two top caliber athletes square off so they have good reason to be excited!

    LB and Elijah step up in the center of the ring when LB offers a handshake, and Elijah obliges returning the gesture. The two then lock up in the center of the ring with Elijah trapping LB in a side headlock, but LB manages to shove him off to the ropes yet Elijah comes back with a nice shoulder tackle taking LB down much to his surprise as Elijah gives him the look that basically says to LB “I mean business tonight!”. LB nods with a grin and they lock up again this time LB getting Elijah in a side headlock, but Elijah sends LB off to the ropes yet this time LB comes back with a clothesline taking Elijah off his feet and gives that same look to Elijah that he also means business. Elijah instantly kips up and blocks a dropkick from LB, and counters with a big time discus lariat! LB pops up but he’s met by a Mongolian chop followed by a European uppercut, and LB is reeling back in the corner as he’s met by several elbow strikes from Elijah. He’s dragged from the corner as Elijah hooks him in position and drops him with a slingshot suplex! LB feeling the effects as he holds his lower back sitting up, and Elijah brings him back up in position before bringing him right back down with a hammerlock Northern lights suplex! LB in plenty pain holding his lower back as Elijah kicks him back down for the pin…

    1…

    NO!

    LB kicks out but that doesn’t deter Elijah to stop his attack as he expertly applies a grapevine STF submission!

    Jim Taylor: Elijah not holding anything back tonight as puts his technical prowess on display


    Tim Coleman: I told you Jim, he’s going to do whatever it takes to win back his championship!

    Jim Taylor: Technically it’s not his Tim, but I see your point


    Elijah stretches back adding extra pressure to the neck and back of LB, who is gritting his teeth as he desperately tries to fight back reaching out for the ropes as he inches his way there and grabs hold of the nearest bottom rope thus breaking the hold. Elijah releases it but he’s obviously frustrated smacking the mat and cursing at himself as LB is climbing back to his feet using the middle and top ropes as leverage. Elijah is right there as he takes LB by the head, but LB fends him off with a forearm strike stunning Elijah and LB hits a DDT planting Elijah’s head to the mat and LB kips right back up to the delight of the fans.

    Jim Taylor:
    Elijah allowed his emotions to get the best of him, and LIGHTBRINGER takes full advantage


    Tim Coleman: Nobody likes a showoff!

    Jim Taylor: The fans would beg to differ in this instance

    Elijah rolls away underneath the bottom rope to the apron where he regains his composure as he rises up, LB is ready for him as he catches him with beautifully executed triangle dropkick knocking Elijah to the floor. Elijah is quickly back up however, but he’s taken by surprise as LB knocks him back against the barricade with a baseball kick! Elijah gathers his wits about as Romeo gives him another pep-talk before Elijah hops back up on the apron, and LB comes charging in but Elijah is ready for him as he counters from the apron with a sunset flip back into the ring with a pin…

    1…
    2…
    NO!

    LB kicks out and rolls away as Elijah rises up following LB as he grabs him by the head, but LB counters with a jawbreaker that stuns Elijah and LB pops up and drills Elijah with a standing dropkick! Elijah rolls back up to his feet however, and runs at LB but LB catches him into a flapjack! Straight into the pin…

    1…
    2…
    NO!

    Elijah with a shoulder up and LB looks to continue this offense as he goes to apron setting Elijah in his sights for a slingshot senton, but Elijah was ready for it and moves out of the way in time causing LB’s back to smack the mat. Elijah is up as he wills on LB before attempting a bicycle kick, but LB ducks and spins around where he’s met by Elijah with a KICK OF FURY!

    Jim Taylor: Tornado kick!

    Tim Coleman:
    It’s lights out for LIGHTBRINGER!


    Elijah grabs a stunned LB and hooks him up in position…FROM TORONTO WITH LOVE! Elijah coming back strong with that Regal-plex into the pin…

    1…
    2...
    NO!

    LB kicks out just before he was moments away from losing his High Voltage championship. Elijah beginning to grow more frustrated and wondering how he can put away LB as he goes in to apply to the Excellent Execution, but LB fends him off by kicking him away allowing LB time to recover as he stands up bringing Elijah in for the LIGHTBRINGER lariat yet Elijah ducks underneath and spins behind LB catching him with a huge German suplex! Both men are spent after that exchange but Elijah stirs to his feet first willing LB on before running at him…ONE ARMED SCISSOR! LB is down after the running single arm swinging neckbreaker and Elijah is looking to end this one and recapture the High Voltage championship…EXCELLENT EXECUTION!

    Jim Taylor: Elijah with that Boston crab kneeling on LB’s back! If he keeps it locked in this one could be over!

    LB’s back is in excruciating pain as he howls in pain and grits his teeth. On the outside Himawari is willing him on and getting the fans behind him while Romeo is cheering for Elijah telling to him to keep it locked in tight. LB is slowly inching his way to the rope, but Elijah senses this and pulls him away while keeping the hold applied. LB begins to dig down deep and somehow finds a way out of the hold flipping Elijah face first breaking the hold but Elijah catches himself before hitting the mat. Obviously frustrated by this turn of events thinking he had it in the bag he slams his fist on the mat while on the outside Romeo tells him to shake it off and get back in the fight. Elijah comes up top looking for a flying elbow drop, but LB pops up in time as Elijah is leaping off and looks to catch Elijah in that flying arm-bar that won him the championship at Retribution. Elijah somehow fends it off though as he counters with a flying arm drag sending LB across the ring, yet LB lands on his feet coming right back at Elijah looking for that lariat of his again but Elijah ducks underneath again spinning behind LB once more but LB is ready this time firing off rapid fire back elbows stunning Elijah. LB spins around and takes Elijah by wrist…LIGHTBRINGER LARIAT! He hooks the leg…

    1…
    2…
    3!

    Lindsay Monahan:
    The winner of the match, and STILL the CWA High Voltage Champion, LIGHTBRINGER!


    Jim Taylor: A hard fought battle until the end and it’s LIGHTBRINGER coming out on top after he turns Elijah inside out with that LIGHTBRINGER lariat.

    Tim Coleman: You can’t take away anything from Elijah though Jim. That man fought tooth and nail to regain back that championship but it just wasn’t enough to keep that darn LIGHTBRINGER down!

    Jim Taylor: There is no shame in defeat and Elijah has nothing to be ashamed of as he brought everything he could in this match, but in the end LIGHTBRINGER overcame it all and stands victorious!

    LIGHTBRINGER celebrates his victory with Himawari in the ring, and he offers Elijah another handshake to which Elijah reluctantly obliges before taking his leave. Elijah obviously beyond frustrated with the outcome of the match as he walks to the back with his head hung low, and Romeo follows patting him on the back.

    *Ariel is seen on the big screen *
    Ariel: I come to CWA to kick some ass I dont care who it is your going down. Get ready to Tapout. Show up Destroy Leave
    *As soon as she says leave she throws the camera man to the ground and locks in a Kimura Lock to prove her point*


    Ariel Justice is coming to CWA!

    -------------------------------------------

    *Hate by Design plays and we are greeted by the lovely couple of Johnny and Jenny Vegas. Johnny has a smile on his face while walking to the ring as Jenny is waving to the crowd. They walk around the ring over to the timekeepers booth and get 2 mics. Johnny walks up the steps and sits on the middle rope pushing the top rope up to let Jenny in the ring and he follows. They stand in the middle of the ring as the crowd chants Vegas Vegas Vegas*

    Johnny: Thank you for the warm welcome everybody. I do this for all of you I put my heart and soul and my body on the line for you all. When i come out from the back and hear all you crazy people screaming Vegas Vegas Vegas....

    *Before he can say anything more another Vegas Vegas Vegas chant breaks out*

    Johnny: I like that shit. Every time i hear that it lights a fire inside of me. A fire that pushes me to leave everything out on this mat for all of you. At Retribution i let it get the best of me. I wanted to be the risk taker and it came back to screw me. I would do it all again for you people though. You guys are the reason any of us are here. You can cheer me you can boo me but i will never stop giving my everything.

    *The crowd starts chanting Best in the World*

    Johnny: Thanks for the compliment guys but the real best in the world goes to a guy like Roberto Superstar. Back to the task on hand though. Earlier this week i threw out a challenge to a certain wrestler and that wrestler's name is Johnathon McGinnis.

    *The crowd starts chanting fuck that guy*

    Johnny: Why when he can have those cocksucking goons of his do it for him. What do they call themselves.... The Echo. You two mouth breathers do not know what you got yourself into. You thought you won a battle but im gonna win this fucking war. Your can run around with your little 6th grade crotch chops while wearing your bedazzled justin bieber 2012 tour t shirt. You know the one with all the world tour dates. The ones that you had to buy after the concert from a scalper. Eventually you will run into me, the pissed off billionare, who will make sure those pretty little faces of yours get rearranged. It might be from me, it might be from some wrestlers in the back, the fan sitting here in the front row, the popcorn vendor, maybe even Isaac Richman himself.

    *The crowd starts chanting fuck them up*

    Jenny: Well Johnny I guess this show isn't going to be TV-PG but really who gives a damn.

    Johnny: Well after tonight this show will never even touch the PG rating again.

    *Johnny rolls out of the ring and is looking underneath the ring for something*

    Jenny: Now babe what are you doing now?

    *Johnny pulls his face out with a smile on it and he starts pulling out a ladder. He pulls it out and slides it into the ring and in the middle of the ring sets it up*

    Jenny: Well this provides some entertainment

    Johnny: Yes it does. You see everyone people climb ladders to get to the top. Ladders are a perfect metaphor for this company. I started right here.

    *Johnny steps onto the first rung*

    Johnny: As I started winning matches

    *Johnny climbs up a few more rungs*

    Johnny: Then I got on a roll

    *Johnny climbs most of the way to the top*

    Johnny: I started getting momentum. I even upset the unbeatable indy darling Johnathan McGinnis

    *Johnny gets 2 steps from the top of the ladder*

    Johnny: This was the rung i was at. We were on the road to 5 Star Attraction and i go around backstage and people are telling me and telling others that my win was a fluke. I beat the champion 1 2 3 clean in the middle of the ring. McGinnis started a downfall and ended up losing to Michelle Von Horowitz and then losing the title to Jon Snowmatashi. After he lost to Snowman I called him out to fight me to show that my win was not a fluke. He dodged me for weeks before finally accepting. We put on a amazing match for all of you fans and being the real man I will say he defeated me that night. We would be 1-1 against each other and down the line getting the rubber match would be the deciding factor. After the match The Echo came out, the guy who has wrestled with honor and dignity his whole career decides he was going to stab me in the back. He wanted to put me on the shelf to stroke his new found ego.

    *Johnny steps down a couple steps*

    Johnny: This is where i ended up while he stayed up on that rung. I sat at home and watched him run his mouth for weeks. I was cleared to return but i knew if I did early I would be suspended for what I planned to do to him. Isaac Richman gets ahold of me and tells me he wants me to come back at Steel Roulette. He tells me McGinnis will be in the match among 4 other wrestlers.

    *Johnny climbs down back to the mat*

    Johnny: I was out for blood that night and for a moment i forgot others were in the match. I climbed up to the top of the pod and cost myself. McGinnis would go on to survive and win the title. I wanted my revenge but I did not get it. After calling him out I get my match and Richman has approved it but we did it with a catch. It isnt just a one on one match.

    *Johnny hits the brace on each side of the ladder and folds it up. He picks it up and throws it towards the ramp*

    Johnny: No no no it isnt a one on one match where a pinfall or submission ends it. It is a last man standing match. Do you know what that means McGinnis? That means I dont get a match I get a fight with you. I get to beat your ass from this ringpost.

    *Johnny goes around hitting each ringpost*

    Johnny: To this ringpost. I get to make you bleed. I get to do whatever I want with you. If I want to drop you on your head 30 times I can. If I want to suffocate you when I lock in the Koji Clutch I can. The ref wont be able to stop me. The only way this match ends is if you cant get to your feet by the count of 10. I can use whatever weapons I want. Chairs/Ladders/Tables hell if i want I can beat your ass with a switch. I might use every weapon I can find who knows maybe we have a kitchen sink underneath the ring.

    *Johnny pulls Jenny in the middle of the ring and gives her a kiss*

    Johnny: Tonight we start a new beginning in CWA and that new beginning is the genocide of the Indy Club. McGinnis you have failed this company.

    Jenny: Enjoy your Fate

    *Johnny and Jenny throw their mics up in the air as they leave the ring and walk up the ramp checking out the ladder on their way up*

    Michelle von Horrowitz vs Harrison Wake w/Mia Walsh
    w/



    As we return to the arena, “Move Me” by the Ghost Inside sounds out on the PA system and Harrison Wake strides out onto the stage. He surveys the crowd, who are mostly hostile but with a smattering of support here and there, before striding down to the ring with purpose. His usual focus is plain on his face. Mia Walsh follows him, a smile on her face as she claps her client down to the ring.

    Lindsay Monahan: This next content is scheduled for one-fall with a sixty minute time limit. Introducing first, accompanied to the ring by Mia Walsh… wrestling out of Rock County, Wisconsin, he stands at six feet four inches and weighs in tonight at two hundred and forty pounds… The Backwoods Badass… HARRISON WAKE!

    Jim Taylor: Here he comes, Tim, the man who finished second place at this year’s Wrestle Royale and third place in last week’s Steel Roulette match at Retribution.

    Tim Coleman: A man of singular determination, for sure. Harrison Wake has come up just short twice this year, and he’ll be looking to keep that going as he prepares for singles action here tonight.

    Harrison climbs into the ring, Mia following through the second and third rope, and he strides around it in a wide circle. His fists are already clenched. He seems ready.



    His music slowly dies down and is replaced by “In Dreams” by Roy Orbison, Michelle von Horrowitz appearing at the top of the ramp. She looks around the arena at the audience, who are giving her an equally mixed reaction, before staring off at the ceiling for a few seconds. After loosening her wrists and cracking her neck, she strides down towards the ring.

    Lindsay Monahan: And her opponent, from Rotterdam, the Netherlands and wrestling out of New Orleans, Louisiana, she stands at one hundred and seventy centimetres and weighs in tonight at seventy one kilograms… MICHELLE VON HORROWITZ!

    She stops half way down the ramp to look at a sign that reads ‘YOU SUCK’. She shakes her head and grimaces at its simplicity. She rips the sign out of the fan’s hand and tears it in two, handing him the part that says ‘YOU’. She crumples the other half up and throws it at him. Finally, she turns away from the fan and moves to the ring, sliding under the bottom rope and climbing to the second rope to point at the ceiling.

    The referee makes his final checks as the two move to the centre of the ring, Michelle beginning to circle. Wake clearly has no interest in this, watching her circle him from the corners of his eyes. She darts in towards him, going for a collar and elbow tie-up, but he simply drives his knee into her side. Von Horrowitz buckles and hits the mat, and Wake is instantly on her (allowing himself a little chuckle at the simplicity of it all). He crouches over her, driving a fist into her head two or three times before she’s able to get her forearms in front of her face to block it, proceeding to squirm to the ropes and force the break. Wake eventually drags himself away when the referee reaches four.

    Jim Taylor: Harrison Wake with a handful of vicious strikes to start off with. They looked like clenched fists to me, Tim.

    Tim Coleman: Just letting Michelle von Horrowitz know what she’s let herself in for, I’m sure.

    Michelle uses the ropes to climb back to her feet, breathing a little heavier and holding the side of her torso that Wake drove a knee in to. She circles a little more tentatively this time, and when Harrison attempts a high kick to her shoulder with his shin he uses both forearms to push his leg away. Wake goes for a kick to her other side, but she straightens both arms in its path to again block the blow. He attempts the same kick again, but this time she catches her leg and hits a leg whip, sending him onto his back. He’s straight up to his feet quickly, going for a clothesline, but Wake ducks it and rolls him up with a schoolboy.

    ONE… T – NO!

    Wake is up quickly, and the two stand-off, staring at each other from a few yards away. They stand slowly and back into respective corners, beginning their circling once more. Wake offers his hand in a test of strength, but Michelle just kicks him in the side of the leg, following up with a spinning kick to the abdomen and then an enzugiri! Wake stumbles to a knee, von Horrowitz bouncing off the rope and hitting a shining wizard! She’s quick to go for a cover again.

    ONE… TW – NO!

    Jim Taylor: A series of four stiff strikes from Michelle von Horrowitz, but still she only manages to record a one-count.

    Tim Coleman: It’s still very early in this one, Jim, and I’d imagine that it’ll take much more to keep either of these competitors down for three.

    Wake climbs back to his feet using the corner for aid, and – after sucking in a little oxygen – charges over at Horrowitz to attempt a clothesline. She ducks it, and goes for a back-slide roll-up, but Wake is too powerful and she’s unable to pull him over. He manages to get his left arm free, and drags her round into a front facelock. He wrenches at her neck before delivering a clubbing forearm blow to the small of her back, and then hooks her arm around the back of his head, slamming her onto her back with a vertical suplex.

    He drags her straight back to her feet and backs her up into the ring-ropes, throwing her to the other side of the ring with an Irish whip. She bounces back at him, and Wake sends her to the mat with a shoulder block. She rolls away from him and slides under the bottom rope, taking a moment to catch her breath.

    ONE… TWO…

    MVH stares at Wake from outside the ring, her hands on her hips, and she begins to make one circle of the perimeter, never removing her gaze from Harrison.

    … THREE… FOUR…

    Tim Coleman: And this harkens back to what we saw at Five Star Attraction, where von Horrowitz repeatedly escaped to the outside every time Jon Snowmantashi began to gain some momentum.

    … FIVE… SIX….

    Jim Taylor: But that only worked for so long, didn’t it? Eventually Snowmantashi caught her, and a couple of Hailstorms later von Horrowitz had lost.

    … SEVEN… EIGHT…

    Von Horrowitz slides back under the bottom rope and, as soon as she’s made her way to her feet, Wake is charging in at her again. He grabs her by the scruff of the neck and hurls her into the turnbuckles. She hits it hard, bouncing back towards him and into a power slam. Wake again drags her to her feet, rocking her into the ropes with a pair of headbutts and then whipping her towards the opposite set. Upon re-approach, she’s lifted up and slammed down with a Samoan drop! Harrison goes for a cover.

    ONE… TWO… - NO!

    Jim Taylor: It looks like Harrison’s studied the tape, not allowing von Horrowitz to escape him for long enough to get her breath back.

    Tim Coleman: Indeed, Jim! A series of power moves knocked von Horrowitz for six, there!

    Jim Taylor: Was that a cricket metaphor?

    Tim Coleman: I’ve been watching a lot of it on ESPN.com. I… have a lot of spare time.

    Wake grabs von Horrowitz by the scruff of her neck and drags her to her feet, backing her into the ropes with a trio of knife edge chops. He proceeds to grab von Horrowitz’s arms and tie them up between the second and third ropes, the referee instantly admonishing him and starting a count towards five. As he does, Wake hits a half-dozen knife edge chops and a pair of headbutts, backing away once the official reaches four.

    Jim Taylor: Underhanded tactics from Wake, there, using the leverage of the ropes to gain an unfair advantage.

    Tim Coleman: Come on, Jim, are you telling me that Michelle von Horrowitz wouldn’t do exactly the same thing, given the chance?

    Jim Taylor: I imagine you’re correct, Tim, but two wrongs don’t make a right.

    The official gets MVH free, and Wake is on her immediately, pushing her into the ropes before throwing her towards the opposite set. She ducks the attempted clothesline and, as she hits the original ropes, she hooks her arms around the top set to check her own momentum. She drops down to the mat instantly and then rolls under the bottom rope, out of the ring.

    Jim Taylor: Harrison Wake doesn’t look like he intends to let von Horrowitz recover on the outside, following her out of the ring…

    But MVH runs around the ringsteps and slides back in, Wake doing the same but receiving a trio of stomps to the head as he’s on his hands and knees. He rolls onto his back and von Horrowitz crouches over him, hitting a half-dozen hard clenched fists to the side of Wake’s head. He puts his forearms up to block, as MVH did earlier in the match, and squirms away to a seated position in the corner. Von Horrowitz backs up slightly, charging in and hitting a low drop kick to the seated Wake. She takes him by the arms and drags him to his feet, hitting a trio of knife edge chops in the corner before throwing him out of the corner and into the middle of the ring. She climbs to the second rope and hits a double axe handle to the staggering Wake.

    The Backwoods Badass manages to stay on his feet, and MVH throws herself against the ropes, going for a clothesline as she re-approaches. Wake manages to duck it, and von Horrowitz’s pace increases as she bounces off the opposite set. Wake turns as she leaps into the air in an attempted cross-body… but he catches her! He throws her up onto his shoulders in a fireman’s carry…

    Jim Taylor: Did you SEE that strength from Harrison Wake?!

    Tim Coleman: And he slams her down with a brutal Death Valley Driver!

    Jim Taylor: Harrison Wake hooks the leg in the lateral press…

    ONE… TWO… - NO!

    Wake continues his onslaught, locking in a headlock to the grounded von Horrowitz. She attempts to fight free for about thirty seconds, clawing at his forearm with her hands, but his lock is held in tight. She re-positions her body, fighting around into a kneeling position, wrapping her arms around Wake’s back. With an extertion of effort, she drives him back onto his feet, the headlock still held in. She hits a trio of elbows into his side, backing him into the ropes and trying to push him into the other set…

    … But Wake simply slides onto a knee, dragging von Horrowitz back down onto her front with the headlock still in. She slams the mat with a fist in frustration, before again going to work making her way back to her knees. When she’s managed it, she again wraps her arms around Wake, attempting to drive him up to his feet again. Wake simply arches his back and wrenches the hold each time, making the attempt futile. Von Horrowitz resorts to clubbing at Wake’s side with clenched fists, and then manages to pull Wake into a standing position in a bear-hug. She clubs at his back, and the hold is released, Michelle immediately going into a rear waistlock and pushing Wake towards the ropes, performing a backwards roll whilst holding Wake, rolling him up into a cover…

    ONE… TW – NO!

    Wake pushes von Horrowitz away and fights to his feet, charging at her and taking her down with an STO…

    … and then he puts his headlock back in! Michelle kicks at the mat, squirming around the ring and eventually managing to hook a leg around the bottom rope. The referee starts his count, Wake eventually releasing the hold. Von Horrowitz immediately slides out of the ring and walks around it, her hands on her hips as Mia Walsh darts out of her way and Harrison Wake watches her from inside the ropes. The referee starts the count-out.

    ONE… TWO…

    Tim Coleman: Harrison Wake seems perfectly happy to slow this one down, and von Horrowitz is hardly in a rush either.

    … THREE… FOUR…

    Jim Taylor: But Wake has had the better of the early going, von Horrowitz has been dropped on her head and he’s been on that neck ever since, and it looks like it’s taking its toll.

    … FIVE… SIX…

    MVH stands behind a ring post, breathing heavily as Wake consults with Walsh across the ring from her. She is indeed favouring her neck, massaging it uncomfortably as she stares at her opponent.

    … SEVEN… EIGHT…

    Michelle slides into the ring, and slowly gets up to her feet. The two again begin to circle the ring, and Wake charges at her, hitting a knee to the side and then putting her in a front facelock. Von Horrowitz drives him across the ring into the ropes, throwing him across it and into the opposite set. She goes for a clothesline but Wake ducks it and, as she turns he rocks her with a headbutt. He follows up with a second, then a third… FOUR! SIX! The crowd are counting along as he continues, von Horrowitz dropping to the mat on the tenth headbutt!

    He continues the onslaught, dragging her to her feet and backing her into the ropes, whipping her across the ring and into the opposite set. He goes for a Lou Thesz press… but MVH has held onto the ropes, and Wake lands on his knees. She charges at him, going for a Shining Wizard, but he ducks underneath her leg and rolls through, taking her in a rear waistlock. He pushes her off the ropes and rolls her up…

    ONE… TWO… - NO!

    She rolls through and back onto her feet, charging at Wake… and straight into a Facebreaker Knee Smash! Von Horrowitz hits the mat and rolls away from her, using the bottom rope to drag herself back towards his feet. But Wake is on her in a flash, dragging her up by her hair and hitting a few rough chops, rocking her towards the turnbuckles. He backs away and charges in with a cornered clothesline, before he takes her over with a snapmare, Michelle landing in a seated position…

    Jim Taylor: And here comes Wake, hitting a series of kicks to von Horrowitz’s back!

    Tim Coleman: Driving the air out of von Horrowitz with those stiff-looking boots!

    He hits a half-dozen in total, and then follows it up by taking a hold of her wrists, stretching her arms either side of her and driving his knee between her shoulders. The referee asks her if she wants to give it up, but she shakes her head, and after thirty seconds she begins to fight her way to her feet, Wake transitioning into a full nelson. He looks like he’s going to go for a Dragon Suplex, but von Horrowitz wraps her leg around his to block it, she proceeds to hit a trio of elbows to his head before working her right arm free, and then taking Wake over with a hip toss. Harrison fights back to his feet, charging in and going for a lariat, she ducks it and doubles him over with a kick to the midsection…

    Jim Taylor: Michelle von Horrowitz bounces herself off the ropes… Running Neckbreaker!

    Tim Coleman: Finally MVH coming back into this one with some offence, and she goes for a cover…

    ONE… T – NO!

    MVH is on Wake again, lifting him up and then slamming him back down with a Russian leg sweep in the centre of the ring. Wake rolls over onto his stomach to stop the cover attempt, so von Horrowitz drives her shin into his ribs a couple of times instead. Wake rolls under the bottom rope and stands up on the apron, von Horrowitz charging over with an attempted shoulder through the middle and top ropes. Wake manages to evade it and then lifts his boot into her abdomen, MVH tangling herself in the ropes in the process. She works herself free, still inside the ring with The Backwoods Badass on the apron. He charges at her, looking for a lariat again, but Michelle ducks it. Harrison turns around into a massive running discuss elbow smash! Wake hits the apron and then rolls onto the outside of the ring!

    Jim Taylor: But is von Horrowitz able to capitalise, here? She simply flops down into the centre of the ring! The effects of this match already beginning to take their toll on her.

    Tim Coleman: This one has been hard-hitting from the offset, Jim, I can’t blame her if it’s beginning to take its toll.

    She rolls onto her knees and uses the ropes to climb up to her feet, on the opposite side of the ring to the stirring Wake. She breathes heavily, trying to regain herself, noting that her opponent is prone. Fortunately, he’s staggering on the outside too, struggling to regain a vertical base. When he’s finally climbed onto the apron, she charges over to the adjacent corner…

    Jim Taylor: Triangle dropkick! Harrison Wake hits the apron and again rolls onto the outside…

    MVH gets back to her feet and charges away from Wake bouncing off the ropes and running towards him, the Backwoods Badass just getting back to his feet….

    Jim Taylor: And now a baseball slide sends Wake back-first into the barricade!

    Von Horrowitz crawls back into the ring and to her feet, charging away from Wake again and bouncing off the ropes once more…

    Jim Taylor: SUICIDE DIVE! Both competitors lie spent on the outside!

    There’s a small ’M-V-H’ chant away in the distance as the two wrestlers suck in oxygen on the outside, von Horrowitz up to her feet first as the referee starts his count.

    ONE… TWO…

    She lifts both her hands up, pointing to the ceiling with a grin on her face. Most of the audience begin to boo, though there is a contingent of support way off in the distance…

    … THREE… FOUR…

    Jim Taylor: And now von Horrowitz continues her attack on Wake, hitting a pair of boots to his ribs as he attempts to get back to his feet.

    Tim Coleman: And now she takes him by the scruff of the neck, dragging him to a vertical base…

    … FIVE… SIX…

    Jim Taylor: And she drives his head against our announcers’ table… And again!

    … SEVEN…

    Tim Coleman: Harrison Wake lays sprawled across our announcer’s table, ladies and gentlemen!

    MVH: This isn’t YOUR announcers’ table, Coleman. This is MY announcers’ table.

    … EIGHT…

    Michelle slides under the bottom rope, into the ring, and then rolls back out of it again, taking Wake by the neck again, and slamming his head against the announcers’ table again as the official begins his count again…

    ONE… TWO…

    Jim Taylor: And Harrison Wake looks in bad shape here, MVH deciding to use the environment to her advantage.

    Tim Coleman: What did I say earlier, Jim? These two are cut from the same cloth. They’ll do anything it takes to win!

    …THREE… FOUR…

    Von Horrowitz drags Wake up and pulls him towards the steel steps. Wake manages a couple of elbows into her side, staggering her a little, but MVH drives an elbow into his back and takes him in a headlock. She drags him to the steps and slams his head into them!

    … FIVE… SIX…

    Von Horrowitz pulls Wake up again, going for an Irish corner towards the ring posted… but, with a huge amount of effort, he manages to reverse it and send MVH head first into the post herself!

    … SEVEN… EIGHT…

    Harrison Wake rolls under the bottom rope and then back out of the ring again to break up the count. Whilst MVH struggles to get to her feet near the ring post, he takes a seat on the top of the steps he was slammed face-first into, breathing heavily and watching his opponent carefully with his hands on his hips…

    … ONE… TWO…

    Jim Taylor: Harrison Wake looks to be weighing up his next steps as Michelle von Horrowitz struggles to get her senses back…

    Tim Coleman: These two have already fought past the twenty minute mark, Jim, and that’ll take it out of any competitor!

    … THREE… FOUR…

    When Von Horrowitz is finally up to her feet, she stumbles towards Wake, who runs to her and hits his Lou Thesz Press, nailing a flurry of right hands to her head as the referee and announcers watch on uselessly…

    … FIVE… SIX…

    Eventually he gets back to his feet, lifting von Horrowitz up and hitting a trio of headbutts, before following up with an STO onto the concrete!

    … SEVEN… EIGHT…

    Wake drags von Horrowitz up by the hair and throws her under the bottom rope, following her in and going for a cover…

    ONE… TWO… - NO!

    Wake puts Von Horrowitz in a grounded bearhug, von Horrowitz struggling to keep her shoulders off the mat as the commentators begin to meander off topic…

    Jim Taylor: And it looks to me, in that exchange, as if neither of these competitors want to win this match via count out. They were interrupting the count and going back to work, forcing the referee to start from one, rather than just wait in the ring for the ten.

    Tim Coleman: I guess there’s a lot of professional pride at stake here, Jim. Jon Snowmantashi is the former world champion, Jim, and will probably be next in line for a World Championship match against the newly crowned champ. These two came in third and fourth in the Steel Roulette match after McGinnis and Snowmantashi. They probably see this match as a massive opportunity to send a message to Richman and the rest of the talent in the CWA locker room.

    Jim Taylor: Sure thing, but I don’t think these two are thinking beyond the end of this match right now, Tim. Harrison Wake is a man of focus, of singular vision as you said at the start of this one, and I don’t think his focus will have wondered too far from simply beating Michelle von Horrowitz here tonight.

    Tim Coleman: Well, you’re probably right, but Mia Walsh will have thought about the ramifications of a victory here, and it will have entered into Wake’s thinking before we kicked things off here tonight, no doubt. A win here is a huge scalp, and I’m sure the CWA World Heavyweight Champion Jonathan McGinnis will be watching this one with interest.

    After about a minute of driving the air out of von Horrowitz with his bear hug, she’s managed to fight her way onto her knees. Wake still has his arms around her, his head beneath her arm as he squeezes her ribs. She drives her elbow into the back of Harrison’s head, and he momentarily loosens the hold for just enough time so that Horrowitz can reverse into a front facelock. She drives a few knees into his abdomen before going for a vertical suplex. Wake is too strong, though, going to one knee so that she can’t lift him… and then he powers her over for a vertical suplex of his own!
    Michelle von Horrowitz struggles to get back to his feet, and Wake stalks her from across the ring, perhaps looking for a superkick… Von Horrowitz turns around… she ducks underneath his feet, and Wake turns into an enziguri! Both competitors hit the mat as the crowd give them a huge round of applause, both of the wrestlers winning them round a little with the level of effort on show in Tampa Bay!

    ONE… TWO…. THREE…

    The referee begins his count towards ten as both wrestlers roll onto their front, crawling to opposite corners and using the ropes to make their way back to their feet. Wake decides to charge over at her, perhaps going for a lariat, but von Horrowitz evades it and hits a drop toe hold onto the second turnbuckle! She rolls Wake up with a school-boy…

    ONE… TWO… - NO!

    Jim Taylor: Wake with a powerful kick out, creating some separation between himself and von Horrowitz.

    Tim Coleman: But MVH charges over and hits a forearm to his head, rocking him towards the corner…. And then a second sends him into the turnbuckles…

    Michelle backs away across the ring and charges at him, hitting a cornered dropkick. Wake stumbles out of the corner and Michelle shows some strength in lifting him up off his feet, placing him into the tree of woe position. She proceeds to his a few kicks to the midsection. She then drives her foot against his throat whilst holding onto the top rope for additional leverage, the referee beginning his count towards five. At four she backs away from him… before charging back and driving her boots against his face with a tree of woe dropkick! Harrison Wake falls out of the corner and into a heap in the middle of the ring, He rolls onto his back, and von Horrowitz notices that he’s in perfect position…

    Jim Taylor: Von Horrowitz is going up to the top rope, perhaps sensing that this one is over! She’s looking for that 450 splash!

    Tim Coleman: But as she climbs, Wake is already stirring, he’s back up to his knees. And now he stumbles over to the corner, slamming an elbow against von Horrowitz’s head…

    Jim Taylor: She teeters on the top rope, and now Wake climbs up onto the second rope with her. He puts her in a front facelock, perhaps looking for a superplex from that second rope…

    Tim Coleman: MVH is wisely fighting out, hitting a pair of forearms to Wake’s ribs, the pair of them precariously positioned on that second rope…

    Jim Taylor: And now Wake releases the front face lock, and MVH hits a big forearm, Wake holding onto the top rope to stop from falling back into the ring… and he fires back with a headbutt… and then a second!

    Tim Coleman: MVH slumps down into a seated position on that top runbuckle, and Wake climbs up onto the TOP rope now! He puts the front face lock in again…

    Jim Taylor: TOP ROPE SUPERPLEX! Michelle von Horrowitz driven into the mat!

    Harrison Wake is a little groggy himself, though, and he struggles to go straight in the cover, instead lying spread-eagled on the mat as the referee begins another double countout…

    ONE… TWO…

    Wake begins to stir, rolling onto his front and lifting his head to see where von Horrowitz is…

    … THREE… FOUR…

    He crawls towards her, draping an arm over her as the referee slides down for the count…

    ONE… TWO… - NO!

    Jim Taylor: And one can’t help but think that, if Wake was able to hook a leg, this one might be over…

    Harrison Wake gets onto his knees, admonishing the referee for a perceived slow count. He gets back up and hits a trio of stomps to MVH, who gets onto her knees and begins to crawl towards a corner. Wake follows up with a kick to her abdomen, and she rolls into a seated position in the corner. Wake grabs the top rope and stomps her torso, before backing away, charging against an opposite set of ropes, and running her boot through her face! She slumps against the turnbuckle, Wake having to drag her back to her feet in the middle of the ring. He hits a pair of headbutts, goes for a superkick…

    Tim Coleman: No! Michelle von Horrowitz manages to catch his foot! She pushes him away, Wake backing away a few yards…

    Jim Taylor: MVH charges at him, looking for that Busaiku Knee Kick… but Harrison dives out of the way!

    Tim Coleman: Michelle stands up, turns around… THROATBUSTER!

    Jim Taylor: Michelle hits the mat hard after that vicious elbow to the throat! Harrison Wake drops into a cover…

    ONE… TWO… T – NO!

    Jim Taylor: Michelle von Horrowitz gets a shoulder up just before three!

    Tim Coleman: Harrison Wake can’t believe it, he’s virtually strangling the referee in frustration!

    Harrison eventually turns away from the official and back towards von Horrowitz, who has managed to roll onto her front and crawl over to the corner. She uses the ropes to drag her way to a vertical base, and the Backwoods Badass prepares for the Sucker Punch – his blow to the back of the head… Michelle seems to sense danger, though, and as Wake approaches she lashes out with a boot to his abdomen, doubling him over. She takes him in a headlock, repeatedly driving her knees into his torso whilst she attempts to regain some stamina. Eventually, she drags him to the corner and hits a rope-run tornado DDT! She goes for the cover, hooking the leg…

    ONE… TWO… - NO!

    Wake kicks out, and von Horrowitz puts a headlock in. She grounds him for a minute, attempting to regain some energy, loosening her neck by rotating the joint. Wake eventually climbs to his knees, and then drives his way to his feet. Von Horrowitz slams her forearm into his back a couple of times, and then applies a front facelock. She attempts to lift him up, perhaps looking for her Psycho Driver finisher… but he’s too big and too strong, dropping down to a knee to block the move. She releases the front facelock and drives each of her knees into his ribs twice, and then a left and right knee to the head! She puts the facelock backs him and, with enormous exertion, lifts him up, his the leg for the Psycho Driver…

    Jim Taylor: NO! Harrison Wake slips out of the back…

    Tim Coleman: SUCKER PUNCH! Michelle von Horrowitz hits the mat hard after that clenched fist to the back of the head!

    Jim Taylor: The Backwoods Badass goes for the cover!

    ONE… TWO… TH - NO!

    Tim Coleman: Again! Michelle von Horrowitz gets a shoulder up at the last possible moment!

    Jim Taylor: This match has just gone past the half hour mark, Tim! Harrison Wake is hardly in great condition himself.

    Frustrated, Harrison Wake goes for another cover immediately after the first…

    ONE.. TW – NO!

    Harrison slams his fists into the mat, getting to his feet and screaming at the referee, Michelle recovering to crawl onto her front again. Wake is incensed, backing the official all the way into the corner, who points to the CWA logo on his shirt by way of defence. Wake eventually turns away, but right into a flying forearm from von Horrowitz! Michelle attempts to Irish Whip him into the opposite corner, but Wake applies the breaks, sending von Horrowitz back in the direction he’d come from, towards the referee… von Horrowitz lifts her forearms to block a clash of heads with the official, squashing him against the turnbuckle in the process. The referee slumps down onto the mat, lying face-down, and Harrison Wake charges in for a lariat. Von Horrowitz ducks it and Wake turns round into a boot to the mid-section… Double Arm Underhook DDT!

    Jim Taylor: But Michelle von Horrowitz knows that pinning Wake is useless, with the referee down in the corner!

    Tim Coleman: So instead she busies herself in removing the middle cover from the opposite turnbuckle!

    Von Horrowitz waits for Wake to climb back to his feet, before dragging him towards the corner and driving his head into the exposed steel with a drop toe hold! Wake slumps into a heap, a thin line of blood running down from his forehead. MVH walks in a wide circle around the ring, her hands raised high above her in a premature celebration of victory. She then climbs out of the ring, grabbing von Horrowitz by the arm and pulling him towards the steel post, slamming his shoulder against it! She turns her attention to the steel steps, removing the top half of the structure and pulling the larger base into the space between the ring and the announcers’ table.

    Tim Coleman: MVH deciding to re-arrange a little furniture here!

    Jim Taylor: But she has to be careful, the referee is beginning to stir in the ring…

    Von Horrowitz slides into the ring and, in a business-like manner, waits in one corner whilst Wake holds his shoulder in another and the referee climbs to his feet in a third. The official turns around and MVH takes him out again with a Busaiku Knee Kick! She slides back out of the ring and drags Wake out after her by his injured left arm. She pulls him towards the steel steps, climbing up them with Wake in a front face lock…

    Jim Taylor: Oh God no! Von Horrowitz perhaps looking for a Pyscho Driver on the steps…

    Tim Coleman: But she can’t lift him, Jim! Wake goes to a knee to block the move. The effects of this long match are taking their toll on her strength.

    As she did earlier in the match, MVH released the front facelock and goes for a knee to the torso, but this time Wake is able to block it with his forearms. He continues to use his right arm – the good one – to repeatedly forearm her in the abdomen, eventually doubling her over. He climbs to his feet and pulls her into position…

    Jim Taylor: PILEDRIVER! On the steel steps!

    Tim Coleman: Both wrestlers fall down onto the outside here! They’re spent!

    The crowd launch into a ‘HOLY SHIT’ chant as the pair lie in a heap, the referee equally incapacitated in the ring. Wake is the first to stir, eventually crawling over to the ring and rolling under the bottom rope. He lies in the middle of the ring, clutching his shoulder, before he crawls to the corner and uses the ropes to drag himself up to his feet. The referee is also beginning to stir, using his own corner to get a vertical base. The official looks at Wake, breathing heavily but standing in a corner, and then at von Horrowitz, who has just rolled onto her front on the outside. He starts the count…

    ONE… TWO…

    Wake, unhappy at the concept of a count-out victory in this match, turns the referee around and lays him back on the mat with his Throatbuster elbow smash! He proceeds to climb out of the ring and take von Horrowitz – who is beginning to stir and trying to use the announcers’ table to get back up – by the hair and drags her to her feet. He slams her face against the table, Michelle falling back into a seated position on the steel steps that she’d been piledrivered onto. Wake starts to dissemble the announcers’ table, removing the monitors and causing the commentators to scatter…

    Jim Taylor: This one is really deteriorating into a straight-up fight!

    Tim Coleman: Come on, Jim! This one started as a straight-up fight!

    Wake climbs up onto the table and pulls von Horrowitz up after him, dragging her into position for perhaps another piledriver. He hooks his arms around her waist, but von Horrowitz drops down to her knees to block the move. She then throws a few forearms into Wake’s side, works her head loose, and then drives her fists into his abdomen. She stands up and stakes him in double arm underhook position, hitting a half dozen knees to the midsection…

    Jim Taylor: Double arm underhook DDT! Onto the table!

    Tim Coleman: But it doesn’t budge an inch!

    Both wrestlers lie in a heap on the announcer’s table, a chant of ‘ONE MORE TIME’ circling around the audience. Michelle has other ideas, though, eventually climbing off the table and stumbling back to the ring apron. She sucks in a few deep breaths, and then climbs up onto it, entering the ring with a sideways glance at the still KO-ed referee. She ascends the turnbuckles, Wake rolling over onto his back atop the announcers’ table. She steadies herself in the top, the fans on the feet… After a few suspenseful seconds, she flies off the top rope, looking for an elbow drop…

    Tim Coleman: No! Harrison Wake dives out of the way at the last possible second!!

    Jim Taylor: Michelle von Horrowitz crashes and burns through our table! She may be done!

    Neither wrestler seems ready to make their next move, MVH spread-eagled on the remnants of the table, Wake hunched over the steel steps, sucking in air. It takes the Backwoods Badass half a minute to stand up again, stumbling over to von Horrowitz and picking her up by the scruff of the neck. He carries her over to the ring and throws her under the bottom rope before following her in. Somehow, Michelle is crawling away from him, and he shakes his head before lifting her up to her feet. He whips her into the corner, following her in with a hard clothesline. She stumbles out into the middle of the ring…

    Jim Taylor: SUPERKICK!

    Tim Coleman: Harrison Wake goes for the cover!

    Jim Taylor: But the referee is still out on the opposite side of the ring!

    Tim Coleman: Well, it WAS Wake who laid him out…

    Wake gets out of the lateral press and attempts to shake the referee back to life, the official eventually coming to and realising where he is. Wake picks von Horrowitz up and kicks her in the midsection to double her over, lifting her up for a Powerbomb… but von Horrowitz fights out whilst she’s hoisted up, driving the point of her elbow to his head three times, forcing him to drop her… She charges at him and nails her Busaiku Knee Kick! Wake hits the mat and rolls onto his front! MVH takes his arms and wraps up Wake’s legs around her left boot, before using her right boot to curb-stomp Wake into the mat!

    Tim Coleman: Von Horrowitz with an adrenaline rush there, re-gaining the ascendancy with a flourish of offence!

    Jim Taylor: But can she capitalise! She’s sat in the corner and doesn’t look like she can follow up.

    Eventually, and with great effort, von Horrowitz begins to climb up to the top rope. She takes her time in steadying herself on the top, Wake having rolled onto his back, and stares at the ceiling, signalling that this one is over…

    Tim Coleman: You have to question whether this is a good idea! The last time she was up here, she threw herself through our table.

    She leaps off, going for her 450 Splash finisher…

    Jim Taylor: No! Harrison Wake gets his knees up!

    Tim Coleman: MVH rolls across the ring, clutching her ribs in agony… The Backwoods Badass is just about stirring himself, crawling towards a set of turnbuckles…

    Jim Taylor: We’re almost back where we started, Tim, Michelle von Horrowitz and Harrisson Wake in opposite corners of the ring, using the ropes to climb back to their feet.

    Tim Coleman: Both of them look physically drained, Tim. This one started out as a straight-up fight, I said that earlier, but now it’s developed into a war!

    Jim Taylor: And we’ve just passed the forty-five minute mark, Tim! The two of them are on their feet, slumped in their corners and staring a hole into one another.

    Tim Coleman: Wake stumbles towards the middle of the ring, and MVH follows suit, still favouring her ribs from the failed 450 AND her neck after a piledriver on the steel steps… But the Backwoods Badass is loosening the shoulder that was thrown into the steel post, blood still coming from that gash on his forehead from the exposed turnbuckle.

    Jim Taylor: And the Backwoods Badass hits a headbutt, Michelle von Horrowitz stumbling away from him, but then she drives back with a forearm driven right to that gash on Wake’s head..

    Wake staggers, but shakes his head and roars at her, driving the gash against her skull with a vicious headbutt! MVH goes down to one knee, Wake stumbling himself, unable to follow up… But Von Horrowitz throws another forearm at him, again driving him away from her, the two of them breathing in a deep, heavy, laboured pulls… Wake hits one more massive headbutt, MVH stumbling back into a corner, using the ropes to keep her feet and unable to move away from their support. But Harrison has to take a knee, steadying himself before the final push.

    Harrison slowly rises up taking a breath as he does so and goes for knee thrust to Michelle's midsection, but she avoids it as she slips herself underneath looking to take him down with a sunset flip that has Harrison flailing his arms about. Finally she stretches out her right leg far enough to strike him right in the lower back causing him to tumble down into the sunset flip but he rolls back away from her on the opposite end and gingerly rises up to his feet going for what looked like a superkick, Michelle narrowly avoiding contact as she ducks it and catches him with a schoolboy roll-up!

    1...
    2...
    NO!

    Harrison with a kick-out and both rise up as Michelle goes for a superkick this time, but Harrison catches her by the boot and spins her around right into a bridging german suplex!

    1...
    2...
    NO!

    Jim Taylor: Neither competitor willing to stay down!

    Tim Coleman: If they keep it up we'll be here all night, we still have a last man standing main event to get to!

    Both of them lay on the mat breathing heavily, obviously spent with about 10 minutes or so to go within the time limit. Harrison is first to his feet as he stirs and rises up with a slight stagger. He brings up Michelle pushing her to ropes and sending her the opposite direction with an irish whip looking to catch her off the rebound with his Timber Bomb as he snatches her up in position, but she counters in mid-air with an amazing hurricanrana sending Harrison flying across the ring. Michelle takes this time to catch her breath before ascending up top signaling for the end as she leaps off...450 SPLASH! She hits all of it as she hooks the far leg...

    1...
    2...
    3!

    Lindsay Monahan: The winner of the match, Michelle von Horrowitz!

    Jim Taylor: I think we may have seen a match of the year candidate

    Tim Coleman: I hate to say it but I agree with you Jim!

    Michelle has her arm raised as she finds it slightly difficult to remain standing. She bends over catching her breath while Harrison is stirring and rises up as Mia Walsh enters the ring and assists her client to his feet. Harrison glances over at Michelle and gives her a nod as a sign of respect, and Michelle returns the gesture as Harrison takes his leave with Mia.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Main Event Grudge Match: Non-title (Last Man Standing)
    Jonathan McGinnis vs Johnny Vegas w/Jenny Vegas
    w/



    "Hate by Design" blasts out and the crowd goes nuts for Johnny Vegas as he steps out with his wife Jenny at his side. He soaks in the adulation, and hypes up the fans some more as he and Jenny sprint to the ring slapping hands with fans along the way.

    Lindsay Monahan: Making his way to the ring being accompanied by Jenny Vegas, from Los Angeles, California. Standing at 6'2 and weighing in at 220lbs, Johnny Vegas!

    Jim Taylor: Vegas finally gets his shot at one on one vengeance against the man that tried to end his career at Five Star Attraction...


    Johnny gives a kiss to Jenny before she hops off the apron, and he circles the ring as he awaits the arrival of his opposition...



    "Blessings" plays and the mood changes in the arena as quite arguably the most hated man in the company and wrestling industry at the moment makes his way out, the CWA World Heavyweight Champion Jonathan McGinnis emerges from the back wearing the championship snug around his waist as he taunts the fans by crotch chopping them and mocking them along the way.

    Lindsay Monahan: From Montreal, Canada and wrestling out of Los Angeles, California. He stands at 5'11 and weighs in at 207lbs, he is known as "The Indy God" and he is also the CWA World Heavyweight Champion, Jonathan McGinnis!

    Tim Coleman: We didn't say it would be easy for Johnny Vegas though...

    Jim Taylor: Nothing in life is ever easy Tim, but I believe Johnny Vegas will do whatever it takes to beat Jonathan McGinnis tonight

    The bell rings and it's clear that both men DESPISE one another. The new World Champion and the thorn that's been in his side since even before WrestleRoyale are toe-to-toe in the middle of the ring, hatred oozing out of them as they stare daggers at one another. Vegas is the first to mouth off, telling McGinnis that's he a thug and low rent champion. McGinnis responds with a hard SLAP to the face.

    McGinnis taunts Vegas, telling him that he's not in his league and that he should just quit now. Vegas responds by TACKLING McGinnis to the mat, laying into the prone champion with seated elbow smashes. McGinnis manages to roll away and out of the ring, but Vegas is all fired up as he runs the ropes, looking for a suicide dive...but McGinnis rolls away and Vegas stops before he can leap. Vegas is relentless as he slides out of the ring and chases after McGinnis, clubbing him in the back with forearms. However, Vegas takes a bit too much time between blows as McGinnis is able to get enough distance and PUNT VEGAS IN THE DICK.

    Jim Taylor: Blatant cheap shot from McGinnis!

    Tim Coleman: It's all fair game, Jim

    Huge boos from the low blow as Jenny Vegas is protesting, but as McGinnis clearly explains to both her and the fans..."It's Last Man Standing, bitch!" As Vegas is doubled over in pain, McGinnis follows that up with a nasty heart punch, making Vegas gasp for air. A sick smirk crosses the champion's face as he has regained control, and then decides to bring out some hardware with a steel chair. Steel meets flesh as Vegas is battered with shot after shot after shot until he's crumpled and motionless on the arena floor. McGinnis slides back into the ring and yells at the ref to start counting, setting up the steel chair in the ring and has a seat, counting along facetiously.

    Vegas, however, has tremendous heart and manages to use the barricade to get back to his feet at the count of six. McGinnis rolls his eyes at this as he grabs the chair, folds it, and rolls out of the ring to deliver more steel chair punishment. McGinnis goes for a big swing, but Vegas manages to counter with an enzuguiri, smashing the steel chair against McGinnis's dome! Vegas pummels McGinnis with forearms to the head to take advantage of this opening and decides to give McGinnis a taste of his own medicine with the chair...SUPERKICK! McGinnis goes to what he knows best and drills Vegas in the chin with a superkick. McGinnis is now well and truly pissed as he starts to bash Vegas's head into the ring apron and dragging it along the edge, drawing a trickle of blood. A hard Irish whip sends Vegas back first into the barricade as he collapses and McGinnis orders another count. Vegas beats the count again at six and McGinnis decides to rush in with an elbow smash, but Vegas has enough wherewithal to counter that into a back body drop OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE FANS!

    McGinnis crumples into a sea of fans and chairs, and Jenny quickly checks on her husband as the referee begin another count. McGinnis staggers to his feet at five as Jenny motions to Vegas telling him that he's still got work to do. Vegas nods as he jumps on top of the barricade and cracks McGinnis in the head with an axe handle smash. McGinnis stumbles through the crowd to get some space, but Vegas is in hot pursuit and spends equal time tossing chairs at McGinnis and clocking him with stiff forearms and elbows. McGinnis finally gets some space as he falls over the barricade onto the entrance ramp. Vegas hops up and stands on the barricade for another flying attack...ANOTHER SUPERKICK! This time, McGinnis superkicks Vegas's knee sending Vegas falling gut first into the barricade! McGinnis quickly takes advantage of this turn of events with a barricade-assisted DDT! Vegas's head collides with concrete as the crowd gasps at this vile assault. McGinnis again yells at the referee to count even though he's on his backside, but he's first on his feet while Vegas is slow to recover.

    The referee passes six as Vegas finally starts to stir. Seven and eight pass as Vegas seems to want to will himself up. Nine comes and Vegas, with a burst of adrenaline, gets to his feet just before ten! McGinnis is pissed off, even moreso when Vegas turns to him and flips him the bird. McGinnis goes for another superkick, but Vegas catches his foot and clocks him with an elbow smash. McGinnis counters with an elbow smash of his own, and the two rivals begin battering one another, trading forearms and elbows as they fight up the ramp to the entrance stage. Vegas manages to get the better of the exchange with a knee right under McGinnis's chin and a short-arm clothesline! Vegas tries to lock in a Koji clutch to try and wear McGinnis down (or, more accurately, to punish him), but McGinnis's instincts allow him to wriggle free as he, strangely, motions to someone from the floor...and a chair is tossed at McGinnis, who catches it and BENDS it across Vegas's back. Vegas collapses as McGinnis grabs Vegas and drives him down with Something Light! McGinnis's hatred is such that he doesn't care that his back hit hard steel if it means he gets to punish Vegas. Both men are slow to get to their feet as the referee counts, but McGinnis is first at the count of seven. Vegas is much slower and it seems as if he won't be able to do it...

    ...but he has help! Jenny has raced up the ramp, Singapore cane in hand as she helps her husband get back to his feet before ten! McGinnis is livid as he yells at the referee, who tells him that it's a Last Man Standing Match, bitch. No rules. McGinnis loses his mind as he walks up and basically tosses an out-of-it Vegas aside and gets in Jenny's face, calling her all sorts of obscenities. Jenny bravely tries to hit McGinnis with the cane, but McGinnis catches it and tosses it away. Jenny realizes that she might've gotten in over her head with a deranged Indy God as she tries to get some distance.

    But you remember that chair earlier? Wanna know who tossed it to McGinnis?

    Yep, it's his stablemates, The Echo. The duo emerge from behind Jenny and hold her hostage. They egg on McGinnis and McGinnis nods...SUPERKICK TO JENNY! THAT BASTARD!

    Jim Taylor: Jonathan McGinnis is a despicable human being!


    Tim Coleman: She shouldn't have been sticking her nose in...


    Jim Taylor: Oh can it, will ya?!

    Jenny collapses as The Echo continue holding her up, taunting her. Vegas is back to his feet and is ENRAGED. He grabs the fallen cane and goes on a TEAR, pelting McGinnis with machine-gun speed cane shots to the head and chases The Echo off Jenny with wild swings. He checks on Jenny, but his focus and RAGE turns back to McGinnis as he continues to pelt the World Champion with cane shots, one after another. Vegas is backing McGinnis up to the edge of the stage, where there's tables set up with electrical equipment awaiting below. McGinnis is teetering as Vegas, fire in his eye and HATE in his heart, winds up for one more big swing...

    Jim Taylor: Vegas getting himself a measure of revenge!

    ...The Echo return! They grab the cane and back off, taunting Vegas with it. It's a brief distraction, but enough of one as McGinnis drills Vegas in the back of the head with another superkick, and grabs him by his ring gear...

    HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! MCGINNIS TOSSES VEGAS OFF THE STAGE INTO THE TABLES! Vegas crashes through wood and steel as the referee makes the count. For all of Vegas's heart, he is in no condition to even move as the referee makes the ten count, awarding the match to McGinnis.

    Lindsay Monahan: The winner of the match, Jonathan McGinnis!


    Jim Taylor: Sickening display by McGinnis and The Echo tonight. I hope those three are proud of themselves

    The Indy Club stands tall on the stage above the fallen body of Vegas as trainers help Jenny regain her senses and medical staff look over Vegas. The Club are shouting all sorts of obscenities much to the hatred of the crowd...but the hate and vitriol turns to cheers. Why?

    KAIJU.

    Snowmantashi has appeared on stage, grabbing both Connor brothers by their heads for a meeting of the minds. McGinnis spins around and is face to face with the former World Champion, who glares at him with murderous intent.

    Jim Taylor: Snowmantashi is here and he's making it crystal clear that he wants McGinnis one more time! Unfortunately that is all of the time we have for tonight fans, good night!


    The show comes to a close as we get a tense stand-off between champion and would-be challenger...

    Great show so far! I really enjoyed Lightbringer - EE. I hope Edwards can kick on from here. His reign was short but Gambit's produced a pair of cracking promos, I'd love to see him do something with Vegas.

    Looking forward to the main event.

    Massive kudos to whoever wrote Wake vs MVH. Excellent match.

    Glad to retain, thanks for the matches Gambit. Hopefully we can interact again in the future at some point.

    My two favorite matches so far have been LB Vs EE II. I'm glad the rematch lived up to the hype of the previous bout. Congratulations to Shake. I'll get you eventually :p. MVH Vs Harrison Wake was epic and makes me wonder how the Main Event will top that.

    Far better match than I deserved since I ended up too swamped to put in an RP this week. Hope to give you a real fight in the inevitable rematch, MVH. Thanks for making Harrison look good in defeat y'all.

    Hopefully be able to get back on track this week.

    Main event has been added, kudos to Cyrus and kudos to SS for the amazing MVH/Wake match.

    Next card will be up in the next day.

    Really good show, although I haven't had chance to read the Indy Club segment yet. The main event was great and the finish is brutal. Unlucky, SoP - maybe a clean break from this feud is what you need?

    Don't worry about the no-show, Silk - shit happens. Indeed, the rematch will be good fun (2 out of 3 falls???). Glad everyone enjoyed the match.

    Looking forward to the next one!

    Unlucky that people cant write a good match twice in a row now. My matches lately have been late just thrown together at the last moment. I was told by Cyrus it would be a HOSS match and to me it was lackluster especially for a LMS match. One time in the match where McGinnis is down and counted. Im at the point where i dont even want to e fed anymore because it is a joke.

    That's a shame, man. A couple of losses is always disheartening but I reckon you can bounce back next week. You could always have a go at matchwriting if you don't like how your character is being portrayed? It'll be a shame to see Vegas disappear again especially after cementing himself as an upper-card player.

    It isnt even the loss or anything it is my matches lately have been a joke. Thrown together lackluster. Why promo anymore when your matches are shit. Why waste my time on doing something i love to do to watch it get wasted.

    Why did you not write the match?

    Unless im missing something. Just dont think its something to be upset over. Write your own matches in future along with potential collabs of opponents if you want a portrayal done your way.

Especially after the MVH/Wake match and you follow up with that.... In the 3 years or so I have e fedded on here i have only wrote 1 of my matches and that was me vs me(ironically in a LMS match) where i was taking out one of my character reps. I dont normally write my own matches because then who i am going against could not be happy with the match so i dont do it

    With all due respect, I disagree. Your last two matches have been the Steel Roulette and vs McGinnis at 5SA. A lot of work went into the SR match from AON and myself. Admittedly there were issues originally but the match was edited and came in at over 9,000 words. I wrote your 5SA match and put a LOT of effort into it, that was 2.5k words after the finish was added in. I apologise if MVH/Wake overshadowed the main event, wasn't my intention, but I remember there being a comment at 5SA saying Vegas-McGinnis overshadowed the main event, so that comes around full circle. To say that your matches have been 'thrown together' and 'lackluster' is very harsh on AON, Cyrus, and myself.

    But hey ho, it's not a big deal I guess.
