    FWA 11TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW RESULTS


    MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK



    The FWA 11th Anniversary Show opens up with a pyro exploding the stage and a brief pan around the arena - we can see a great deal of signs in support for Bell Connelly, Cyrus Truth, KAIZEN, Mike Parr, Jean-Luc Watkins, Anzu Kurosawa and James "Eyesnsane" Hughes. Some also are supportive of Stu St. Clair and Devin Golden whilst some ask "Where's Kennedy!?" - there are a small section of children wearing Eimi Sanada masks whilst a big group of soccer moms hold up signs asking Danny Toner to phone them. The fans are in full voice to kick off the special network show and we are welcomed by Langdon Trafford, Piers Gallagher and David Weinstock!


    Langdon Trafford: Hello, once again, FWA fans and welcome to the ELEVENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FWA!!

    David Weinstock: Truly a big occasion, Langdon.

    Piers Gallagher: It's not often that I say this... but I agree! Tonight is one to celebrate.

    Langdon Trafford: And celebrate we will with a huge card! Infact, Piers, celebrate could be a key word tonight - alot of matches with glory on the line! I'm sure everyone involved tonight want to be remembered for all the right reasons. Certainly, there are four people we know for sure that are striving for greatness!

    David Weinstock: You could say they are on a quest... for the b-

    Piers Gallagher: Shut up, Dave. We get it. Kazadi's winning quest for the best... no need to oversell it - we KNOW it's happening!

    Langdon Trafford:
    Well, Piers, as much as you want it to happen... he has to get past Anzu Kurosawa first! A highly respected and dangerous opponent!

    Piers Gallagher: Easy.

    Langdon Trafford: But first, let's look at our main event, our FWA Champion, Cyrus Truth... also know as 'the CWA guy' is taking on Bell Connelly in a champion versus champion match! Of course, the women's title on the line... but this is a big, big match guys! Remember when Shannon O'Neal and Gabrielle faced under similar circumstances? Well, Shannon did not win the title but Bell can!

    David Weinstock: She will have to be at the absolute top of her game, Langdon, no doubt about it. Cyrus is not a joke and he will take her seriously. Tonight, though, we will know for sure whether Bell Connelly can hack it at the top or not!

    Piers Gallagher: She's a woman, Dave, of course she can't. She will wilt. She's not mentally strong enough - look at her! She breaks easily.

    Langdon Trafford: I think Piers just wants us to speak about Jean-Luc.

    Piers Gallagher: It's definitely a topic worth talking about. Tonight, Jean-Luc Watkins will unify the X title and the TV title. He will become a legend! This is the sort of stuff that makes these nights special, I cannot wait! Also, Eyesnsane is going to become the sole owner of the FWA Tag Team Titles with support from Gabrielle! The FWA is becoming interesting again!

    David Weinstock: Of course, Piers, you know that Jean-Luc will have to watch his back, after tonight, someone such as Jason Randall or Gingy Eastwood or Wally Tusket or Natalie Illiad will come for him. He's going to have to focus on two different things.

    Piers Gallagher: He has nothing to worry about from any of them, Dave. Randall? Been there. Done that. Gingy Eastwood's too busy killing transsexuals to bother with it. Tusket!? TUSKET!? He's a joke! Natalie Illiad? She's a woman. She has no chance against the man who carries the Watkins' name. It's too easy. I don't know why any of them bother showing up.

    David Weinstock: I think if you keep insulting woman like this, Dave, Shannon O'Neal might have a problem with you.

    Langdon Trafford: She certainly might have him in her sights if she can deal with Toner and Ramon, tonight! She appears to have a problem with the men of the FWA!

    Piers Gallagher: Are you kidding me? Toner and Ramon are both wasters. Shannon beating them? It means nothing! NOTHING!

    Langdon Trafford:
    Piers is getting a little antsy, Dave, we better get the action started!

    David Weinstock: And what a start we will have...

    Langdon Trafford: The quest for the best semi finals will open up the show! Anzu Kurosawa will take on Zachary Kazadi later on... but first we open up with KAIZEN continuing his road to redemption against the ... 'cinderella' story so far... Eimi Sanada!



    A small promo package plays highlight Eimi Sanada's win over rival, PASSION, as well as the talented Randy Ramon whilst KAIZEN's wins over Thomas Jordan and Michael Garcia are shown.

    "Skydive" hits the arena and the crowd, especially youngsters, get excited when Eimi Sanada comes out onto the stage wearing a mask and enthusiastic jumping around whilst waving to the fans.


    Langdon Trafford: This young lady has come very far in the FWA already - similar to Zachary Kazadi - but she might be facing the biggest test of her career tonight. A former FWA World Heavyweight Champion in KAIZEN awaits!

    David Weinstock: I think she could do it. She just has to be smart!

    Piers Gallagher: I think it would be hilarious if KAIZEN lost to her!

    Sanada becomes focused as she gets to the ring and bows before entering, she retreats to her corner and looks up at the stage with serious focus on her face. "Real Rock N Rolla" begins to play the crowd EXPLODE for KAIZEN as he makes his way to the stage.

    Langdon Trafford: This reaction! I think the crowd might want KAIZEN to continue on his current path!

    Piers Gallagher: As long as Chris Kennedy doesn't appear and KO him... he probably should.

    "Tokko-yaro" makes his way to the ring with a stoic expression on his face - his eyes don't leave Sanada's who looks slightly intimidated in the ring as he jumps in and gives her a brief staredown...

    David Weinstock: I think KAIZEN is looking scary right now. He might be able to intimidate Sanada, I wonder if she can rise to the occasion.

    Piers Gallagher: I'm sure she makes you rise to the occasion, Dave.





    QUEST FOR THE BEST SEMI FINALS
    "Azure ★ Future" Eimi Sanada vs "Tokko-yaro" KAIZEN

    The referee calls saying as the crowd chants loudly for KAIZEN, electrifying the atmosphere in the ring. Sanada looks slightly nervous, as if the crowd noise is getting to her. KAIZEN, with a blank expression on his face, slowly moves to the center of the ring. Sanada moves forward as well, but KAIZEN immediately smacks Sanada with an open-handed slap!!! The crowd gasps as Sanada reels backward. KAIZEN rushes the bent-over Sanada and drills her with rapid knees to the body!! Sanada collapses into a corner under KAIZENs furious assault, and the crowd pops to their feet anticipating an early conclusion!! KAIZEN is slamming knees and punches into Sanada as the ref implores him to not used closed fists!


    Langdon Trafford:
    KAIZEN has come out like a house on fire! That absolute lack of respect for Sanada, its showing, and KAIZEN is trying to end this early!!!

    David Weinstock:
    He’s turning this into a street brawl and that’s not what Sanada wants!! She needs to WRESTLE him!!!!

    Piers Gallagher:
    Welcome to the big time, Sanada!! Better show yourself out the door and let the adults handle things!!

    KAIZEN gets up and lets Sanada up as well. KAIZEN tries to grab Sanada but Sanada nails KAIZEN in the jaw with several rapid elbows! But KAIZEN grits through them, lifts Sanada up, and plants Sanada down with a German Suplex!! KAIZEN holds on for the cover!!

    1…

    2…

    Sanada kicks out. KAIZEN maintains his grip, however, and twists Sanada’s arm as the two get up. KAIZEN loops Sanada’s arm down and flings her up for THE BREAKER (Pump Handle Powerbomb)!! KAIZEN then pins Sanada again, but this time adds a forearm to the face on the pin!

    1…

    2…

    Sanada kicks out again. KAIZEN gets up, grabs Sanada by the hair, and then flings her into a corner head first. Sanada’s face smacks against the turnbuckle, but as KAIZEN approaches, she throws a backflip kick which catches KAIZEN on the forehead!! Sanada pops back up and throws a superkick, but KAIZEN catches the kick mere inches from his own face. KAIZEN shakes his head, throws Sanadas foot aside and crushes Sanada with a spinning backfist!! Sanada tumbles back into the corner and is immediately smashed by a STEEL BALL RUN (Cannonball Senton)!!! The crowd grimaces as Sanada collapses into the corner in a heap, wheezing for breath with her hair disheveled all over her face.

    Langdon Trafford:
    The sheer ferocity!! KAIZEN is giving young Sanada no quarter, and this match cannot be called right now a proper contest!!

    David Weinstock:
    This is just getting ugly at this point, Langdon. We’re going to see what Sanada is made of right here.

    KAIZEN looks at Sanada in the corner and suddenly backs off. The crowd looks on in rapt attention as KAIZEN stands at the center of the ring and beckons Sanada up with his hands. Sanada, still catching her breath, is slow to get up. KAIZEN yells “Get up!!!” several times, but as Sanada straightens up, KAIZEN charges and launches another knee right into Sanadas gut. Sanada doubles over and KAIZEN, shaking his head, sets her up for the MINORU Special (Gotch Piledriver)!!! KAIZEN tries to lock in the Gotch grip, but its too close to the ropes and Sanada uses both feet to sandwich the top rope and prevent herself from being lifted! KAIZEN drops Sanada back down and smashes her with a big knife edge chop which “woooooo!!”s the crowd. KAIZEN grabs Sanada to try for MINORU Special again, but Sanada suddenly pops KAIZEN with a palm strike in the face… which completely bowls KAIZEN over!

    Piers Gallagher:
    What in the hell??????

    Langdon Trafford:
    She’s finally got herself some breathing space!! But how??

    The crowd is also confused as KAIZEN tries to get up, but finds himself on wobbly legs. Sanada, meanwhile is breathing heavily and holding the top rope on the side. Suddenly, Sanada charges forward with a scream and superkicks KAIZEN!! KAIZEN reels but tries to rebound off the opposite rope, only for Sanada to smash him with a step-up Enzuigiri!!! KAIZEN drops down to his knees, and Sanada runs the ropes and crushes KAIZEN in the face with a running Double Knee Strike!!! The crowd flinches as KAIZEN is wiped out in the center of the ring. Sanada pops back up, and through her mussed-up hair the camera catches her wild-eyed fury!

    Langdon Trafford:
    A remarkable turnaround!! Say what you want about this young woman, but KAIZENs assault, this 2016 QFTB, its bringing out the monster in Eimi Sanada right here, right now!!!

    David Weinstock:
    I don’t even think she knows, she doesn’t even know her own strength yet.

    Piers Gallagher:
    Eimi Sanada has been my pick to win this whole thing all along!!

    Sanada doesn’t go for the pin and instead grabs KAIZEN up. KAIZEN reverses and goes behind Sanada, but Sanada sees it coming and drops down for a Stunner!! KAIZENs is snapped upward, and Sanada spins around, grabs KAIZEN by the hair, and smashes him to the canvas with a Sitout Facebuster!!! Sanada tries to go for the pin as some in the crowd stand, sensing an upset in the offing, but as Sanada stoops down, KAIZEN grabs her wrists and shoots his legs up for a DOUBLE CROSS (Straightjacket Double Armbar)!! Sanada jams her knee onto KAIZENs legs to prevent him from locking in the hold, but the move buys KAIZEN a few precious moments to regain his wits. KAIZEN tries to tighten on one of Sanada’s arms, but Sanada wriggles out, stacks herself up on KAIZEN, and spins to pin KAIZEN with a modified schoolboy pin!!!

    1…

    2…

    KAIZEN kicks out with force, separating the two wrestlers. KAIZEN kips up and tries to hit a spinning backfist, but spins right into a headscissors from Sanada!! KAIZEN falls out of the ring through the middle ropes, landing with a thud on the mats. Sanada gets up, looks around to see where KAIZEN landed and stands at the ropes to prepare herself. The crowd gasps as Sanada sizes up KAIZEN, waits for him to get up, and then launches herself out of the ring by jumping onto the rope and hitting a twisting Asai moonsault!!! Both wrestlers are completely wiped out outside!!

    Langdon Trafford:
    The courage!!! Eimi Sanada takes flight, and KAIZEN has been hit with the brunt of her fury!!!

    Piers Gallagher:
    The courage??? Its INSANITY!!!

    Langdon Trafford:
    A title shot is on the line in this tournament Piers!! If there was ever a time to pull out all the stops, its Quest For The Best!!!

    Both competitors struggle to their feet on the outside as the crowd stands to get a better look at whats going on. Sanada is up first and as she sees KAIZEN, she charges and spears KAIZEN against the ring!! KAIZEN gasps in pain and falls down, where Sanada gets on top of him and starts raining down palm strikes and elbows!! KAIZEN desperate covers up as Sanada screams and exhales with every punch!! The referee tells Sanada to get back in the ring, so she eventually stops and grabs KAIZEN by the head, throwing him back in the ring. As she gets back in herself, KAIZEN surprises her with an inside cradle!!!!

    1…

    Sanada kicks out after one, but as she gets up, KAIZEN flattens her in the corner with a diving European uppercut!!! KAIZEN thinks he has the upper hand and goes to the opposite corner to charge, but Sanada charges out at him and as KAIZEN turns around, he gets blasted with a Shotgun dropkick!! Both of them are down again as the crowd roars, with dueling chants of “KAI-ZEN!” And “SA-NA-DA!!” ring out all around the arena!!

    Langdon Trafford:
    She’s won them over!! Not just with skill, not just with aggression, but with heart, David, pure heart!!!

    David Weinstock:
    She has to capitalize NOW, though, if she wants to WIN!!

    As KAIZEN gets up, Sanada charges him with a Slingblade, except KAIZEN partially ducks it and backslides Sanada!!

    1…

    2…

    Sanada kicks out and rolls through the pin, but as she rolls, KAIZEN gets up to his feet and blasts Sanada with a thunderous PK!! Sanada is laid out, knocked out as KAIZEN goes for the pin!!!

    1…

    2…

    Sanada kicks out as some in the crowd were already chanting 3!!! KAIZEN shakes his head, but sees where Sanada is laying and slowly ascends the corner turnbuckle!! As he gets to the top, he points up to the rafters with one hand, and the crowd cheers knowing KAIZEN is signaling for TOKYO SKYLINE (Corkscrew Swanton)!!!... but Sanada was playing possum!! Sanada pops up and once again leaps to the top with KAIZEN in one jump!! The crowd shrieks as Sanada smacks KAIZEN in the face with an elbow, grabs him, and launches them both downward with a Sky Piercer V (Moonsault Slam/Spanish Fly)!!!!!!!

    Piers Gallagher:
    SHE CAUGHT HIM!!!!!!

    David Weinstock:
    SHE CAUGHT HIMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Langdon Trafford:
    THE COVER!!!!!!!!

    1….

    2….

    Thr-

    KAIZEN kicks out!!! Two and three quarters!!!!!!!

    Sanada sits up, unable to comprehend the kickout for a moment. She then tries to get up with KAIZEN in tow, but shes expended her strength. Both her and KAIZEN fall back down to the mat in a heap, breathing heavily. The crowd chants for Sanada as she holds her head in her hands.

    Having kicked out through reflex, KAIZEN finally stirs while favoring his back. Sanada catches her breath and then finally gets up. She slowly walks over and grabs KAIZEN by the head to pick him up. KAIZEN goes up to a knee, and then suddenly lands a punch to Sanada’s midsection. And another… and another! Sanada cracks KAIZEN with a headbutt, but KAIZEN won’t stop punching Sanada in the gut!!! Eventually, Sanada falls down gasping for air while KAIZEN, on all fours, stalls to catch his breath!

    Langdon Trafford:
    KAIZEN is trying to knock the air out of Sanada!! A respite in the form of stiff shots to the body!!

    David Weinstock:
    That’s the championship experience right there!! We’re in deep waters now, and he knows if Sanada can’t breathe, she can’t fight!!!

    KAIZEN gets up and picks Sanada up, but Sanada collars KAIZEN and drops him down for a DDT!!!.... but KAIZEN has caught Sanada and his head doesn’t find the mat!! KAIZEN deadlifts Sanada back up and nails her with a THUNDER STRIKE (Catching Norther Lights Bomb)!! KAIZEN rolls out of the ring as the the pro-KAIZEN fans cheer, and seeing Sanada is where she is, springs off the apron, onto the top rope, and hits Sanada with the XU (Springboard 450)!!!!!

    Langdon Trafford:
    THE XU!!!! THIS COULD BE ALL!!!!!!

    KAIZEN covers!!!

    1…

    2…

    Sanada kicks out of the XU!!! KAIZEN, in shock, tries to cover again!!

    1…

    2…

    Sanada kicks out again. KAIZEN, in frustration, lands punches to Sanada’s head, but due to fatigue they simply don’t have a ton of juice left in them. KAIZEN eventually stands up and drags Sanada up with him. He grabs Sanada by the hair and cracks her with a closed-fist punch. The ref admonishes him, but Sanada comes right back with a punch of her own!!! The ref throws his hands up and just gets out of the way as the two grab each other by the hair and just start winging punches and elbows at close range, whipping the crowd into a frenzy!!! Sanada switches to leg kicks, buckling KAIZEN with repeated kicks until KAIZEN falls down to a knee!! KAIZEN pops back up and spins Sanada around with a European Uppercut, but as KAIZEN steps forward to grab her, Sanada reverse elbows him in the face, grabs him, and flies over with a second-rope Shiranui!!!!!!

    Sanada covers!!!

    1….

    2…

    KAIZEN kicks out!!! Sanada screams at the top of her lungs, popping the crowd!!! She gets up and takes KAIZEN up as well, grabs KAIZEN leg, and tries to lift KAIZEN up for Diamond Dust (Fisherman Suplex Piledriver)!! But she can’t quite get him up, and KAIZEN rams his free knee into Sanada’s face!!! Sanada drops KAIZEN but refuses to get of his head, so KAIZEN rams his own head into Sanada’s gut!! Sanada can’t breathe again and doubles over, right into a MINORU Special from KAIZEN!!!!! The crowd explodes as KAIZEN drops Sanada down!
    !

    Langdon Trafford:
    MINORU SPECIAL!!! KAIZEN HAS SPIKED SANADA!!!!

    David Weinstock:
    Man, its over. That’s gotta be it….

    Sanada is unmoving on the mat, but KAIZEN has fallen backwards into a seated position and is too tired to cover!! KAIZEN eventually uses the ropes to pull himself up, but catches his third wind, pulls the fallen Sanada up and gives her a second MINORU Special!!!

    The cover!!

    Winner and advancing to the finals: “Tokko-yaro” KAIZEN


    The crowd both stand and applaud the two wrestlers as they both lay on the mat, KAIZEN with a forearm still draped on Sanada. KAIZEN slowly gets to his feet as the ref raises his hand, shaking his head and trying to catch his breath, trying to collect himself for the next match that he has earned for himself. As he stumbles and tries to leave the ring, a hand grabs his boot to stop him.

    Eimi Sanada, still laying down, has grabbed KAIZEN by the boot. The crowd falls hushed as Sanada drags herself up to her knees as KAIZEN stands still. Sanada gets up on wobbly legs and thrusts her hand into KAIZENs chest, almost as if demanding a handshake.

    KAIZEN looks at Sanadas hand, shakes his head once more, and swats it away.

    The crowd boos, but then the cheering and applause commences as KAIZEN straightens himself out and quarter-bows to Eimi Sanada. Sanada, still glassy-eyed, looks at the top of KAIZENs head before bowing to him also. Sanada accidentally knocks heads with KAIZEN from bowing too close and falls back down to the mat. KAIZEN rubs his head and exits the ring.

    The crowd chants “SA-NA-DA!!!!” as Eimi Sanada slowly lays down on the mat on her back. As the ref and ringside doctor try to usher her out of the ring, Sanada tries to hide the tears coming out of her eyes with both hands.

    Langdon Trafford:
    We have just witnessed a war, an all-out war for the chance, the opportunity to challenge for FWA gold, to win FWA Quest For The Best. And though she gave everything, absolutely everything she had, the quest of Eimi Sanada has just been ended in this ring by “Tokko-yaro”…

    Piers Gallagher:
    They took each other to the absolute limit, theres no way, no way KAIZEN has anything left for the final!! They basically ruined each other’s chances of winning!!!

    David Weinstock:
    Maybe she didn’t win the tournament tonight, guys, but she won something from KAIZEN, from our audience here in this arena, from the FWA Universe… she won respect.

    Langdon Trafford:
    Ladies and Gentlemen, the leading line from this match will be that former World Heavyweight Champion KAIZEN has advanced to the finals of Quest For The Best, but if before this show you did not know the name “Eimi Sanada”…

    … well folks, you certainly know now.


    COMMERCIAL BREAK


    A small promo plays that showcases Zachary Kazadi's impressive submission dominance over Wally Tusket as well as Jason Randall on his way to the semi finals whilst Anzu Kurosawa's hard fought yet brilliant victories over Shannon O'Neal and James "Eyesnsane" Hughes come to the fore.


    "GOMD" hits the PA System and the crowd break into a boo as a non chalant Zachary Kazadi begins to make his way to the ring. He barely even bothers with the crowd as he struts his way down.


    Piers Gallagher: This is a man who gets it.

    David Weinstock: He's an insolent, disrespectful piece of work.

    Piers Gallagher: Don't be jealous, Dave, that Zachary is talented enough to blow everyone away in this thing. These morons booing don't know anything!

    Kazadi gets into the ring and doesn't even bother posing for the crowd, instead he warms up at the ropes and focuses on the stage. "A Real Hero" begins to play and the crowd gives a nice, warm reception for Anzu Kurosawa and her handler.

    Langdon Trafford: Clearly, the crowd want Anzu to win! But she needs to try and end it quickly. KAIZEN was just in a war and she won't want to be in one too!

    Piers Gallagher: Ha! This is easy for Kazadi!

    Anzu is almost just as stoic as Kazadi as she gets into the ring - they also have a staredown as the referee comes in between them.








    Quest for the Best
    Semi Finals Match
    Anzu Kurosawa vs. Zachary Kazadi



    The two circle around the ring briefly before Anzu goes sprinting at Kazadi with a dropkick to the knee. As he drops to a knee she quickly comes back with another dropkick, this time to the head. Kazadi quickly rolls out of the ring to regroup. Anzu sprints to the ropes, but stops short and plays to the crowd and skips around the ring.



    Langdon Trafford: This could be a mistake by Anzu here. She can't give Kazadi time to recover.



    David Weinstock: The crowd loves it though!



    Piers Gallagher: See that! Kazadi is ready to take advantage already! He's going up top!



    Kazadi is on the top rope waiting for Anzu to turn around and notice. She's smiling at the crowd completely unaware. As she turns around, Kazadi leaps at her for a flying cross body! Anzu manages to hit the floor at the last second and sends Kazadi crashing to the ground. Anzu pops up with a smile on her face and points to her head before quickly giving a few stomps to Kazadi and picking him back up. She lands a swift kick the the midsection followed by a double-underhook piledriver. Anzu goes for an early pin attempt.



    One.. Two.



    Kazadi kicks out right at the two count and manages to roll out of the ring once again. However, Anzu comes outside right after him.



    David Weinstock: This has been all Anzu so far. Kazadi has barely been able to catch his breath.



    Langdon Trafford: Outside the ring is no place to hide either. Anzu Kurosawa feels right at home out there.



    Anzu doesn't waste a second, and clips Kazadi's knee from behind. She pulls him back up and Irish whips him right into the steel steps as the referee is at a two count. Kazadi is dazed and seated with his back against the steel steps. Anzu gets a running start and hits a missile dropkick righ to Kazadi's head, smashing it against the steel.



    Langdon Trafford: This is starting to get ugly. Kazadi could be concussed!



    Kazadi does indeed look a bit dazed as the referee gets to a five count. Anzu lies him flat on his back on top of the steps, and runs straight up his chest to get to the apron and back into the ring. The referee admonishes her and tries to get her to stop. She ignores him, but gets back into the ring anyway. Kazadi manages to pull himself up to the apron at an eight count, but Anzu comes running right back at him with a dropkick to his shin! Kazadi manages to jump back into the ring just at the right time and Anzu falls down to the mat on the outside. Kazadi takes this time to shake off the cobwebs, and motions for Anzu to get back into the ring. She takes her time, but once she is in the ring she come sprinting at him again. Kazadi is rdy this time and lands a solid spinning back fist that drops Anzu to the mat. He quickly goes to work on her left arm with a series of kicks and knees. Kazadi then pulls Anzu back up by the same arm, wrenches it, and drops her again with a sharp elbow. Kazadi holds onto her arm and jumps down with a leg drop doing further damage. Kazadi shows his submission technique by flawlessly transitioning to a Canadian Cross Armbreaker.



    Piers Gallagher: Kazadi is just too dangerous! You give him one opening and he will pick you apart.



    Anzu writhes in pain from her already beaten left arm. She reaches for the ropes, but is out of reach. She tries to inch her right arm towards the ropes, but in doing so is only putting more strain on her left arm. Anzu looks like she is about to tap, but manages to find enough strength to roll and just barely grasp the bottom rope. The referee starts to count and Kazadi finally breaks the hold at a four count. The damage done may be enough, as Anzu is still in tremendous visible pain as tries to pull herself up. She manages to make it to a knee when Kazadi hits her with a devastating running knee to the temple. She may be out cold!



    One... Two... Th-


    David Weinstock: She just manages to kick out in time!



    Langdon Trafford: That may have been purely on instinct! I thought she was out cold.



    Kazadi can't believe it, but goes right back to the strikes on her left arm. After a few more knees he picks Anzu up and goes to whip her into the corner. Anzu manages to reverse it, and sends Kazadi hard into the corner before collapsing from the pain in her left arm. She manages to get back up though, and runs at Kazadi hitting a crisp running European uppercut with her right arm. Kazadi drops down into a sitting position and Anzu runs back across to ring, coming back with a running knee of her own. Kazadi looks dazed again and Anzu continues to stomp away at him in the corner as she shakes her left arm and tries to get the blood flowing again. Anzu gives Kazadi a face-wash for good measure before pulling the beaten Kazadi from the corner. She leads him to the middle of the ring and hits a snap suplex. She lets out a little yell as pain shoots through her left arm. She fights through it and goes for the quick cover.



    One... Two... Thr-



    Kazadi manages to kick out. He refuses to be put away. Anzu refuses to let this continue. She signals for the Brainbuster~! Kazadi is pulled back up and lifted into the air... Anzu's left arm gives out! She loses a hold of Kazadi, and the two come down with Kazadi managing to roll into a Canadian Omoplata! Anzu is in trouble. Her left arm has already had so much damage done to it. She is screaming and visibly in a ton of pain, but refuses to give up. She inches towards the ropes and is just about there, but Kazadi manages to pull them back to the middle of the ring! Anzu has nowhere to go! She fights for a little bit longer until it appears there is no way for her to hold on any longer. She reaches her hand up to tap!



    Piers Gallagher: This is it! She has to tap or Kazadi is going to do some permanent damage here!



    She stops herself from tapping at the last second and rolls forward to put Kazadi in a schoolboy-type pin.


    One... Two...


    Kazadi kicks out! She caught him off guard and almost stole a pin there. Both fighters are exhausted and down on the mat. Anzu crawls to the corner and sits up as Kazadi slowly pulls himself off the ground. The crowd is giving a huge ovation for both of these fighters for the tremendous heart they've shown. Neither one can have much left. Anzu back herself up in the corner and the two come face to face in the center of the ring. Words are exchanged before Kazadi grabs Anzu's face and shoves her backwards a couple steps. She steps back up and hit a swift elbow to Kazadi's face. He returns it with a right elbow of his own, and the two start exchanging in the middle of the ring. Kazadi is the superior striked, and Anzu has an injured left arm, but her anger allows her to somehow get the upperhand and beat Kazadi back. After a few elbows in a row she gives him a kick to the midsection and is looking again for the Brainbuster~! This time she fights through the pain and manages to lift Kazadi up! He forces his way over though, and lands on his feet behind her. Anzu turns around just in time to be caught with a kick to the midsection from Kazadi. Followed by a Front Flip DDT! Kazadi used the last of his energy as he just manages to make the cover and hook the leg.


    One... Two... Three!!!


    Winner: Zachary Kazadi via pin fall



    COMMERCIAL BREAK



    G-Eazy X Bebe Rexha’s “Me, Myself, and I” hits on the PA system and, shortly afterwards, Jason Randall walks out onto the stage. He lifts his a
    rms above him and beats his chest whilst the crowd reacts positively. The bell is rung and Kurt Harrington lifts his microphone…

    Kurt Harrington: “Ladies and gentlemen, this next fatal four-way is scheduled for one-fall, with a thirty minute time limit. Introducing first, weighing in at two hundred and twenty five pounds… from San Diego, California… ‘The Wildcard’… Jason Randall!”

    Randall takes the time to high five some fans as he makes his way down the ramp. He climbs into the ring and moves to the second turnbuckle, playing up for the fans before his music fades out. It is replaced by “I’m About to Break You” by New Years Day, Natalie Iliad coming out onto the stage to a subdued reaction.

    Kurt Harrington: “Next… weighing in at one hundred and forty two pounds… Natalie Iliad!”

    Iliad makes her way to the ring quickly and waits on the outside, her music dying. Next we hear “Worlds Apart” by CFO$, and Wally Tusket comes out to a good reaction. He has a beaming smile on his face and he walks quickly to the ring, slapping the hands of the front row fans as he does.

    Kurt Harrington: “And from the Arctic… weighing in at three hundred and twenty two pounds… Wally Tusket!”

    Tusket gets into the ring, keeping his distance from the pacing Randall. Finally, CFO$ fades out and we hear “Renegade” by HammerFall. The crowd’s positivity continues as Gingy Eastwood walks out onto the stage. He walks down to the ring and quickly climbs into the ring, a look of focus on his face.

    Kurt Harrington: “And finally… weighing in at two hundred and twenty seven pounds… from Clarkdale, Arizona… ‘Gingy’ Eastwood!”

    The four competitors stare around the ring at one another, waiting for the bell to ring. But, before it does, America is Waiting plays and Jean-Luc Watkins appears on stage, receiving heavy boos from the audience. He is in his ring gear (white tights, white boots with a leopard-skin trim, from his last safari in Central Africa) but wears a black Tom Ford dinner jacket also. He has a microphone in his hand and the gold of the FWA X Championship is visible through his unbuttoned jacket.


    Piers Gallagher: “I feared we were going to be left with these four misfits for the next twenty minutes, but there is a God! It’s Jean-Luc!”

    David Weinstock: “It seems Watkins wants to take a closer look at the potential first challengers to his X Championship…”

    Piers Gallagher: “Is he going to join us? Please let him join us!”

    Watkins remains on the stage as his music begins to fade. As the boos gather relentlessly around him, he lifts the microphone to his lips.


    Jean-Luc Watkins: “Ladies and gentlemen, do not fear! For I am here to save you… To save you from the mediocrity that stands before you in that ring… To save you from the banality… The slow, lingering doubts that you’re wasting your all-to-finite time on meaningless nobodies. A champion is here to save you from this drivel!”

    He begins to slowly walk down the ramp, one hand positioned atop of his championship belt and the other gripping the microphone. Tuskett, Eastwood, and Iliad hang back, watching the interloper reproachfully. Randall, on the other hand, is leaning over the ropes, shouting obscenities at Watkins.


    Jean-Luc Watkins: “If you’re asking yourself why I’m out here, then you’re not a particularly intelligent person. It’s obvious, right? The powers that be have decided that one of these four people – well, I shouldn’t say people, because one of them isn’t exactly a person is he… these four beings? – anyway, I’m getting side-tracked. One of these four wrestlers will be the first challenger for my FWA X Championship. What qualifications they have for that honour is beyond me. They have less combined wins than Triple J Security. But that doesn’t matter. If management wants to feed me an easy first defense then that’s perfectly fine with me. And I’m here tonight to keep a close eye on these four young pretenders. A lunatic, a biker, a different sort of lunatic, and a walrus. An actual walrus. These are the four from which my first victim must be picked. So be it. I’ll defeat whichever one of you is left standing, and I’ll do it next week on Fight Night. Let nobody be able to say I’m anything but a fighting champion!”

    Watkins rounds the ring, continuing to talk as he meanders towards the announcers’ table.

    Jean-Luc Watkins: “So I’m here, despite the fact that I have a match to prepare for myself, against the FWA North American Champion. You might have read about it, at the top of the card. Later on, I prove that this championship, the one that I wear here tonight, is the most important and most relevant championship in the FWA. But for now I will share with you another of my gifts. Fans of Next Generation Wrestling may remember my sterling performance on guest commentary during a battle royal. Well, I will reprise my role for you here tonight. It’s the least I can do to add a little zest to the flavourless mess you’re about to ingest. Good luck, men, women, and walri.”

    He takes a seat next to Piers Gallagher and the two heartily shake hands. In the ring, the referee calls for the bell.




    Fatal 4-Way Match – X Division Championship #1 Contendership
    Gingy Eastwood vs. Wally Tusket vs. Jason Randall vs. Natalie Illiad.


    The match starts in a flurry of action, Eastwood and Randall beginning to trade right hands (picking up where they left off in their Quest for the Best first round match) whilst Iliad charges over to Tusket and hits him with a standing dropkick. The walrus falls to the mat and Iliad is on him in an instant, hitting a series of stomps before lifting a leg to kick away at his thigh. When she’s done with that she drops an elbow onto his knee joint. Meanwhile, Eastwood has Irish whipped Randall off the ropes and goes for a clothesline, which the Wildcard ducks beneath. It looks like he’s going to bounce off the opposite set of ropes, but he checks his motion by hooking his arms to the top rope, and Eastwood’s attempted standing dropkick sends him sprawling onto his mat. He gets back to his feet straight away but Iliad is on him with a forearm strike, and then Randall takes him down with a clothesline of his own…

    Langdon Trafford: “This one is going to be a hard match to call… All four competitors in the ring at the same time, and none wants to be left out of the action!”

    Jean-Luc Watkins: “What do you expect? All four of their lives are a mess, why would a match involving them be any different?”

    Piers Gallagher: “An astute point, Jean-Luc.”

    David Weinstock: “Oh, please…”

    Back in the ring, Tusket is up to his feet and he charges towards Iliad and Randall, looking for a double clothesline, but they both duck it at the same time and hit the turning Wally with twin boots to the midsection, following up with a double suplex! The two get to their feet, but they have no chance to celebrate their successful teamwork with Eastwood back to his feet. He spins Iliad round and puts her in a facelock, before driving her into the mat with a DDT. He’s back up to his feet and Randall is running at him… he takes Gingy down with a Lou Thesz press and follows up with a series of vicious right hands. The Wildcard gets to his feet and beats his chest, the crowd going wild with appreciation.

    David Weinstock: “And Randall, at least for now, is the only wrestler on his feet! He’s really taking it to his opponents tonight.”

    Piers Gallagher: “But he should be concentrating on the other three. He has a lot more to do if he’s going to put one of them away.”

    Jean-Luc Watkins: “That’s typical Randall, though, Piers. He lacks focus. That’s why he’s stewing in meaningless matches like this.”

    Finally Randal stops playing up to the crowd and he hoists Iliad, up to her feet. He backs her into the corner and hits a trio of knife edge chops, before Irish whipping her into the opposite corner, where she remains slumped. He then repeats the process with Eastwood, whipping him into the same corner as Iliad. Finally, he hoists up Eastwood, and whips him hard into the other two, the walrus involuntarily splashing against them, crushing them against the turnbuckles! Tusket stumbles out of the corner, and Randall takes him down with a neckbreaker. The other two have slumped to the mat, and Iliad rolls beneath the bottom rope for some time alone on the outside, so Randall hops onto the top of Tusket to hook the leg…

    ONE… TWO… - - NO!

    Langdon Trafford: “And there’s Eastwood to break things up, dropping a double axe handle onto the back of Jason Randall.”

    Eastwood looks to keep the momentum, hoisting Eastwood up and Irish whipping him off the ropes. He follows up with a flapjack, and then follows up with a series of stomps. Finally, he locks in a sleeper hold, beginning to grind Randall down whilst the walrus still lies face-down on the mat and Iliad sucks in oxygen on the outside. Randall fades and slumps to the mat, the referee checking his arm, but the Wildcard shows signs of life on the third drop. He begins to fight to his feet, the crowd on his side, and then he unleashes a series of elbows into the abdomen of Eastwood. Meanwhile, Tusket has begun to climb to his feet, using the ropes for support. Randall grabs Eastwood by the hair and hits a jawbreaker, sending Gingy stumbling into the corner and breaking the sleeper. Tusket sees Eastwood slumped against the turnbuckles and attempts to hit him with a big splash… but Eastwood ducks and lifts Tusket over the top rope with a big back body drop, the walrus landing face first on top of the steel steps!

    David Weinstock: “Did you see that impact?!”

    Langdon Trafford: “See it?! I heard it! A man that size is not meant to fly like that. Impressive strength by Gingy Eastwood.”

    Piers Gallagher: “But it’s taken it out of him, he needs to suck in oxygen before he can go back to Randall…”

    Jean-Luc Watkins: “Short-term thinking. The sign of a stupid person.”

    Eastwood eventually does meander out of the corner, moving towards Randall, and he goes for a wild clothesline. The Wildcard easily ducks it though, and floats through into a swinging neckbreaker. Gingy gets to his feet stubbornly but Randall is waiting for him with a boot to the midsection. He grabs the arms and hits a double arm underhook suplex, going for the cover directly afterwards…

    ONE.. TWO… - - NO!

    Gingy gets the shoulder up, and the two continue to duke it out in the ring. Meanwhile, on the outside, Tusket and Iliad have come together and are trading right hands. Tusket, much larger and stronger, comes out better from the exchange, and proceeds to hit a European uppercut on the debutante. He grabs her and Irish whips her into ring post, Iliad taking a seat on the steel steps. Tusket shakes the cobwebs loose and then charges at her, perhaps trying to crush her against the post… but Iliad takes a couple steps towards him and hits a low dropkick, taking the walrus out at the knees! Tusket goes down and Iliad grabs him by the neck, throwing him face-first against the steep steps a total of three times! Tusket slumps into a seated position with his back against the steps, and Natalie repeatedly stomps him in the chest, before backing away and charging in with a running knee to the head! Tusket seems out, and Iliad can’t lift him to get him back in the ring. In the end, she gives up on the idea and hops onto the apron, watching Eastwood and Randall exchange right hands in the centre. She watches them for a moment, and then springboards off the top rope, taking them both out with a cross-body! She first attempts to cover Jason Randall…

    ONE… TWO… - - NO!

    Randall gets the shoulder up, so she hooks Eastwood’s leg instead…

    ONE… TWO… - - NO!

    Langdon Trafford: “Impressive show of aerial ability from the newcomer, there, but it’s not enough to pick up the victory.”

    David Weinstock: “It shows how important that X-Division Shot is to these four! None of them wants to lose…”

    Jean-Luc Watkins: “I think it’s more a case that nobody is good enough to win…”

    Iliad lifts Eastwood up to his feet and rocks him with a boot to the midsection. She puts him in a front face lock and attempts a snap suplex, but Gingy blocks it, and then takes her down with one of his own! He follows up with a series of stomps, driving her under the bottom rope and onto the apron, and then re-focuses on Randall. The Wildcard is gradually making his way to his feet, and he spots Gingy charging at him for a clothesline. Randall manages to dive out of the way of it, sending Gingy chest-first into the turnbuckles. Eastwood stumbles away from them and Randall goes for a clothesline of his own… but this time Eastwood ducks it. He goes for the Sidewinder… No! Randall pushes him away, and then kicks him in the midsection… Snake Eyes! He gets all of the stunner! …

    … but before he can go for the cover, Iliad has climbed to her feet on the apron, and attempts to hit another springboard move… No! Randall catches her out of mid-air and hits another Snake Eyes! …

    … and here comes Tusket into the ring, and he eats a Snake Eyes too! The crowd is going nuts, and Randall doesn’t know which one to cover. Eventually he shrugs and hooks Wally’s leg.

    ONE… TWO… THREE!

    Winner: Jason Randall
    Randall rolls off Tusket and the referee comes over to lift his arm.

    Langdon Trafford: “An impressive showing from the Wildcard there. He’s more than earned his shot at the X-Division Championship.”

    David Weinstock: “That means singles victories over Jhunha and Eastwood in the last month, and now a fatal 4-way victory over Eastwood, Tusket, and Iliad. The Wildcard is on a roll…”

    Jean-Luc Watkins: “We’ll see about that…”

    Randall has climbed to the second rope, and Watkins takes his headset off to stand up and stare his next contender down. Randall reciprocates, Watkins lifting his gold high into the air. Randall beats his chest, the crowd cheering his name, his music blaring around the arena.



    COMMERCIAL BREAK





    "Rockstar" Randy Ramon vs. Shannon O'Neal vs. Danny "F'n" Toner



    The crowd erupts when Ramon and Toner begin brawling along the entrance ramp. The two bitter rivals and former tag team champions, separately and with one another, throw haymakers at each other with a little extra mustard behind them. Ramon slams Toner's face into the fan barricade, but Toner elbows Ramon in the ribs and shoves him back first into the opposite barricade along the entrance aisle and lands a sole kick to the kidney.

    "Feels Like the First Time" begins and the crowd again erupts, this time for Shannon O'Neal. Ramon and Toner don't notice her music or consider her a threat, and they pay for it. Shannon races in and lands a running forearm to both at the same time, taking them out with a full-on sprint down the entrance aisle. Shannon grabs Toner and Ramon and yanks them by the neck and hair toward the ring, rolling them in where the referee calls for the bell. Shannon runs off the ropes and delivers a running clothesline to both men, taking them back down. She stalks the ring a bit before landing a kick and a few backhand slaps to Toner. She backs him into the turnbuckle and delivers a few more forearms across the face. Then she whips him across the ring, only to have it countered. Toner charges but Shannon lands a kick to the gut and steps to the second turnbuckle. She leaps off but Toner catches her like a baby and Ramon lands a dropkick to Shannon's back after Toner tossed her in the air!!! The Rockstar and Danny "F'n" Toner show their team work, but it's short-lived. Toner lands a sucker punch to Ramon, and the two are back at it brawling in the ring. It goes to the outside, where the two continue grappling and throwing short jabs to the face. Shannon, though, flies in with a sommersault plancha to take BOTH men out!!!

    The crowd cheers the high-paced action. Shannon rolls Toner and Ramon back into the ring and again stalks them. Toner ducks a forearm and hits a backbreaker. Ramon tries a small package roll-up on Toner, but it's no good with a two-count kick-out. Toner tries a forearm but Ramon ducks and hits a spinebuster. Then he lands a standing dropkick to Shannon. It seems "Rockstar" is building some momentum. Both foes are down for a second before Ramon wrenches Shannon's arm and shouts, "Still want to face the men?!" Shannon gets another arm wrench from Toner, who locks in her other arm. Now Shannon is being rung like a shirt, but she lands a stomp to both men to get free, but she isn't upright for long. Toner lands a Saito suplex and quickly goes for the cover!
    ..............1.............Randy breaks it up.

    Ramon and Toner again begin arguing, this time with words. Ramon ducks another cheap punch try from Toner and lands his own knife edge chops to the chest. Ramon whips Toner into the ropes and tries a leg lariat! Toner goes to the mat and Ramon covers.
    ..............1.................2.....Kick out

    Ramon grabs Toner by the neck for a side neck hold but Toner quickly counters with a shin breaker and a barrage of uppercuts sending "Rockstar" reeling. Toner whips Ramon across to the turnbuckle and lands a running elbow smash to the jaw. He walks his archrival out to the middle of the ring for a spinebuster and pin try!
    ...............1...................2.............Not quite!

    Toner continues the offense, this time whipping Ramon to the ropes and trying a spear! But Ramon leaps over the diving Toner and gets a spinning heel kick from Shannon!!! Ramon stumbles back right into the German suplex of Toner, who bridges the pin!
    ...............ONE
    ...............TWO
    ............Shannon breaks it up!

    Shannon sits atop Toner and begins firing punches at him. Toner counters by rolling on top of Shannon and yanking her by the hair. He walks Shannon up to her feet, but Ramon dives into Toner's knees! Ramon sizes up Shannon for his "The Remix" superkick! He aims for Shannon but the former Women's Champion ducks and Ramon lands it right into Toner's mouth! Shannon then delivers a kick to the ribs and her "Paradise City" bicycle kick finisher to Ramon!

    Shannon covers "Rockstar." ...........1................2................3!


    Winner: Shannon O'Neal

    Shannon raises her fists in celebration and pride. Then she exits the ring, not before looking into the camera and saying, "That wasn't easy, but it ain't any tougher than facin' a 'gal."


    COMMERCIAL BREAK



    Mastodon's "The Motherload" blasts out from the sound system and Mac Michaud makes his way out along with Daniella Kennedy. Mac walks at a brisk, angry pace towards the ring while Daniella does her best to keep up as the crowd gives Mac a nice, positive ovation.

    They continue to trade lefts and rights until Mac levels Hughes with a knee to the midsection doubling him over. Mac sends Hughes off the ropes and catches him with a high impact spinebuster! Hughes writhes on the mat before immediately rolling away to the outside where Gabrielle meets with him giving him a pep talk. This enrages Mac further prompting him to slide out of the ring.

    Dave Weinstock: Hughes wisely focusing on the leg of Mac, smart move keeping the big man off of his feet

    Piers Gallagher: Thanks for the insight Captain Obvious!

    Hughes keeps the hold locked in adding some extra pressure to it as he wrenches back. Mac is gritting his teeth as he fights back the urge to submit while desperately reaching out to clutch the bottom rope, and he's finally able to do so yet the damage may be done as he begins to favor is knee. Hughes with more deadly stomps to Mac's knee causing the big man to howl in agony which brings a sick smirk to Hughes face.

    Hughes had no choice to kick out forcing the hold to be broken. Mac rolls to his corner receiving a pep talk from Daniella while Hughes rests on one knee ready for the next push as Mac struggles back to his feet with a limp and Hughes charges in Mac's direction looking a running big boot, but Mac gingerly slides out of the way and then levels Hughes with a discus lariat!

    ONE....TWO.... THREEE!!! "EYESNSANE" IS THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!


    Winner: James "Eyesnsane" Hughes

    As the crowd boo’s the announcement of the winner, Gabrielle walks over to the time keeper’s table and picks up both tag team titles one by one she places each over her shoulders and grabs a microphone as well. Gabrielle turns toward the ring and walks to the nearby steps as Eyesnsane is walking toward the ropes and as he reaches them he sits on the second rope and pushes up the top rope making it easy for Gabrielle to step into the ring. As she does they both walk to the center of the ring where she hands Eyesnsane the microphone.



    Eyesnsane: First I just want to tell all of you hear and all of you watching around the world one thing. You’re Welcome! Thanks to me you all just sat here and witnessed history. I am the first person to ever win the FWA tag team titles by myself. If you recall just like I said I would back at Red, White, and Bruised.


    He lowers the microphone a bit and let’s boo’s coming from the crowd wash over him as a cocky smirk appears on his face. He looks pleased with himself as does Gabrielle as she looks at her man.


    Eyesnsane: Oh none of you have to like it. But you all have no choice but to accept it. Just like you have no choice but to sit back and watch just what I do with these titles and where I take the FWA tag team division. What you all just saw is what happens when you stick your nose in my business. Mac may have cost me a tournament but he just paid with his last bit of relevance. He just paid with what little is left of that pathetic thing he calls a career. Take a good long look at one of my fiercest enemies. Here I stand tall and triumphant as the tag team champions of the world. And there he goes with his tail between his legs all but destroyed by me.
    These titles are mine and if any of you think it will be an easy task to take them then by all means step right up. If you think I have not planned for this think again. If you think you can prove me wrong well then I am asking you to give it a try. This is where I remind you all that I am pound for pound the best fighter in the FWA. This is where I remind all of you that I am an icon and a legend in this company and once again I tell you all that you are welcome. I am making history and I am taking the reins of this company and you all will bear witness as I transcend into the wrestling God I am destined to be.




    Eyesnsane drops the microphone and Gabrielle hands him one tag team title and fastens the other around his waist. Eyesnsane raises one title up above his head with Gabrielle standing at his side holding his raised hand in the air as boo's come from the crowd and some items are even thrown into the ring from the crowd as "Dark Horse" by Twista hits the speakers of the arena.



    COMMERCIAL BREAK






    "FWA Television Title" Match

    "The Prodigy" Mike Parr vs. "Baby" Jean-Luc Watkins

    Mike Parr enters first to mostly jeers and boos from the crowd as he makes his way down the ramp with his unsanctioned Television Championship. Though there are a few vocal supporters. He holds it proudly like it has the value of the FWA World Championship. He grins and smiles and continues to walk down the ramp with a smug grin as he wipes his boots off before getting inside the ring. Jean-Luc Watkins comes out with a smolder on his face, some ladies in the arena admittedly swoon a bit but the majority are booing him as he comes down, though some just might be jealous men as Watkins climbs right into the ring and stares down "The Prodigy."

    The ring bell sounds and both men circle one another, Watkins taking a boxing stance of sorts while Parr gets low circling and looking for an opportunity to go and attack his legs. Both men are aware of their opponents' stylings and keep their distance momentarily. But Parr eventually gets too anxious and swoops in but Watkins is ready with a quick knee to the face of Parr who stands up rubbing his nose. Watkins moves in with a few jabs, Parr dodges the first two jabs but a right forearm hook from Watkins catches him off guard and he is pushed back.

    Parr sees that Watkins has come to party and begins to straighten up as Watkins comes in again Parr is ready with a counter grab into an arm twist and then a modified elbow to the chest of Jean-Luc who breaks free of the hold and brushes the pain off his torso. The two men lock up and Parr wins out pulling Jean-Luc in and then grabbing him into a snap suplex right onto the ground and then masterfully turning it into a surfboard hold. Watkins grunts in pain but manages to get to his feet and force Parr to let go he turns around and kicks Parr in the gut and then throws him into the ropes. Parr comes off the ropes and Watkins goes for a clothesline but Parr ducks it and then comes from behind and grabs Watkins right into an inverted backbreaker! Watkins falls onto the mat. Parr covers 1...Watkins kicks out!

    Parr huffs and gets up as Watkins does as well and the two men begin trading blows, this turns out to be a bad idea on Mike's part as Watkins is much more skilled and then after delivering a hard knee to Mike Jean-Luc comes up with an European uppercut. Parr stumbles back and Watkins grabs him back for a DDT! Mike rolls around in pain and Watkins hooks the leg 1...Parr kicks out! Watkins wastes no time and gets up stalking Mike who is a bit slow to get up after such a hard attack from his opponent as Mike gets up Jean-Luc comes in with a double underhook suplex slamming Parr hard onto the mat and then Watkins covers Parr once again 1...2 Parr kicks out!

    Watkins gets up fast, but Parr gets up fairly fast as well and the two have soon locked up and are grappling with one another trying to gain advantage. Watkins backs Parr up into the corner and the ref orders Watkins to release the hold 1...2...3 Watkins releases the hold, not wanting to risk getting disqualified this time around. As Watkins backs off Parr pops him in the mouth. An enraged Watkins tries to grab Mike but he's too fast and goes low pushing Watkins down right to the mat and then into a leg lock. Watkins struggles to get out but Parr is doing a lot of damage. After Parr is satisfied with the damage he's done he stands up and begins stomping on the legs of Jean-Luc.

    Watkins crawls to get up as Parr waits patiently. As Watkins gets up Parr rushes in and delivers a running high knee to Watkins who spins out onto the mat. Parr covers Watkins 1...2 Watkins kicks out! Parr tries to grab his opponent by the hair but Watkins slaps his hands away and the two stand up and grapple once again. Watkins wins out by overpowering Parr and Irish whipping him off the ropes this time Watkins connects with a clothesline. Parr lands on the mat hard but get up only to be grabbed by Jean-Luc right into a T-Bone suplex! Watkins looks pumped up as he covers Parr 1...2 Parr kicks out!

    Watkins gets up waiting for Mike to get up, his eyes are laser focused and there is hunger in his stance. As Mike gets up he has no time to react before Watkins comes in with a running lariat. Parr gets up still looking a tad dazed, that's perfect for Jean-Luc who grabs him right into a German suplex! Hitting him with the big suplex three times! Parr is down and looks to be in trouble as he holds the back of his head. Watkins takes a deep breath and yanks Parr to his feet after a few slaps to the chest Watkins grabs him for his finisher Glasgow Smile but Parr spins out of it and kicks Jean-Luc in the side and then pulls him down with an arm drag slam!

    Watkins slinks up but is knocked down by a lariat from Parr to the mat. Parr then goes from the ropes and hits Watkins with a shining wizard! Watkins is down, and Parr sees an opportunity and circles Watkins, waiting to strike. As Watkins gets to his feet Parr comes in and grabs Watkins from behind to hit his finisher rolling cutter but Watkins powers out of it and grabs Parr to throw him onto the mat with a single arm back to belly suplex! Watkins covers Parr 1...2.. Parr gets his shoulder up!

    Watkins grabs Parr by the hair and begins to jab at him as he pulls him up and then he puts him in position for a DDT! But Parr escapes it but Watkins is ready and grabs at Parr but Mike puts a thumb to Watkins, eye. Parr goes for a grapple attempt but Watkins is ready and knees Parr in the gut and then grabs him for his finisher Glasgow Smile but Parr spins out of it and twists Watkins up to perfectly hit his finisher Rolling Cutter! Watkins crashes onto the mat, Mike Parr hooks the leg 1...2...3! It's over! Mike Parr has survived Jean-Luc Watkins!

    Winner And STILL "Television Champion": "The Prodigy" Mike Parr via pinfall

    After the match ends, we are shown a brief promo that hypes up the upcoming Hall of Fame inductions!



    COMMERCIAL BREAK


    We come to back to a podium having been set up the stage and we then fade into a promo that highlights the careers of both Stu "The Snake" St Clair and "The Golden One" Devin Golden. We see moments from Stu's run as World Heavyweight Champion as well as his encounters with the likes of Chris Kennedy. We are also treated to some of Vodka and Venom's tag title run before it transitions to Sunrise-Sunset and we are shown moments from Devin Golden's career such as his World Title victories and his X-Title run.



    The lights dim on the stage as the crowd comes to its feet. "House of the Rising Sun" begins playing, which urges the entire crowd to its feet with an outstanding ovation. Then the song stops, and the crowd sort of hushes, unsure what to do.

    "Lose Yourself" by Eminem kicks up, and the crowd erupts into a massive applause a second time. Right as the beat ventures into the lyrics, the song stops AGAIN! The crowd is now buzzing with anticipation, unsure what this means or when "The Golden One" Devin Golden will come to the ring.

    Finally, "Heart of a Champion" by Nelly begins and everyone explodes with fandom when the three-time World Heavyweight Champion appears on the stage in his usual T-shirt and blue jeans attire. The man of three monikers — "The Golden One," "The Rotten Gold," and "Whyte Thunder" — comes to the podium with a mighty grin on his face. The crowd greets him with a "Golden-One! Golden-One! Golden-One!" chant that engulfs the arena for a good 30 seconds.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: In seven-plus years doing this, I gotta say my favorite theme song was probably "Lose Yourself." Coming out to the ring to that music before my World Heavyweight title match versus Stu at Mile High 2010 was the biggest rush of my life.


    The crowd gives another pop as Golden seems to have control enough for his speech.



    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: When I joined the FWA, my first PPV event or big event of any kind was the 4th Anniversary Show way back in 2008. It's weird to think about that, how far the FWA has come, but that was my first real big show. And I watched as Fred Ex, exCellence, Brian Habana, and Dan Sinclair were inducted into the FWA Hall of Fame. First-ever inductees. I thought, "Wow, if one day that could be me, that would be awesome." And even if I was a fringe guy, maybe someone who won a few X Championships and a few North American titles and a couple Tag Team Championships, that'd be good enough for me. Even if I never won the World title, I'd be OK with that at the end. If it meant I'd be remembered. 'Cause that's what this is about: leaving a legacy and being remembered.


    Golden pauses for a second as he looks down at his notes.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: G-Rich, Ewan Edwards, Jillian De Silva, and Sean Kelleher were inducted in 2009, the 5th Anniversary Show and the night I beat Draven St. Germain to clinch the longest-reigning X Championship reign. At the time, of course. The next year I watched Ryan Hall, Nate Richardson, Tony Juvenille, and Jenny Ignito get into the prestigious Hall.


    The crowd pops for all four, but the biggest cheer goes to Jenny's mention.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: Anyanka, Empire X, Matt Boudreau, Chris Stallings, and Moira Crawford were next. APAB, Jack Severino, Matthew Robinson the year after that.


    Moira Crawford, Empire X, Matt Boudreau and Jack Severino get outstanding applause from the fans. Chris Stallings tops them all, though.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: In 2014, it was WOLF.


    The crowd EXPLODES with cheers.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: Then last year, Ashley.


    And again.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: Now it's Stu and I. To think I get to join a list with the names mentioned is ... surreal. But there are so many other names who helped me get here. I never would've made it ... this far ... if not for Draven St. Germain. I never would've gotten here if not for that very first major feud, to put me on the map. I wish it would've put HIM on the map, in the same way.

    I never would've made it this far without G-Rich helping me, offering me some of the best advice anyone could've, in the middle of 2010. I never would've made it this far without Stu St. Clair. He ... guys he REALLY REALLY deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. He's one of the best, man. He's one of the best ever.



    The crowd cheers, leading a vocal "Stu and Golden!" chant before "ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME!" Golden laughs and shakes his head.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: I wish. Oh man, to go one more time with "The Snake."


    Another loud pop from the crowd, which quiets down enough for Golden to keep going.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: At some point, I was no longer the student and became the teacher. I want to thank the guys who came after me for listening. Xavier Xander Xerxes. KAIZEN. Randy Ramon. Danny Toner. Drew Stevenson. Bell Connelly. Phillip Jackson. And last, but not least, Ryan Rondo.


    Another loud pop and "ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME!" chant breaks out as Golden smiles.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: Rondo was ... Number one. Like a little brother, he and I were linked throughout our careers. Even before forming Sunrise-Sunset, we were compared for our X Championship reigns, babyface and endearing "fight-to-the-end" attitudes, and high-flying styles. But Rondo ... is better than me. He is different from me. He is ... above me. And I want to stress how proud I am to see him unify the World Championship belts at Back in Business and see one of the "students" rise above the teacher. It makes the teacher proud, not jealous.


    Golden struggles to continue but finally does, offering one last word.


    "The Golden One" Devin Golden: And last, I want to thank the friends along the way. Chris Kennedy, I never would've stuck around the FWA if not for you being my friend along the way. At your best, you are the best. I hope you have one last run in you to prove it, so you can have a proper send-off like I did. Like Stu did. You deserve it. You're an amazing friend, an amazing person, and the FWA is better for having you around.

    Rondo, you know how much I value the bond we've built here. It's crazy thinking back to days playing FIFA and talking about ... leaving the PWS Network. Gabrielle ... I'll always wish we had our proper feud. Stu ... I'll always wish we could've talked shop more. But I'll always say YOU were one of my favorite opponents. WOLF, you pushed and prodded me to the edge of my patience at times. You also were one of the toughest fights I've ever had and a big reason I stuck around as long as I could. Your heart for this is noticeable, and I wish more had the same amount. Ashley, thank you for being there and allowing me to look up to you and truly idolize you as the person I wanted to mirror. KAIZEN, take the torch and fly, kid. Matthew Robinson, thank you for trusting in me and giving me the chance to prove myself so many years ago. No matter what I or anyone else does here, YOU are the most important person in the history of the FWA.

    And to the fans, thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell my story for you. Thank you for watching, listening, reading. Whatever. For seven years, this was part of my life. A big part of my life. That doesn't change. Ever.



    After Devin finishes speaking, he shakes hands with Ashley O'Ryan and departs the stage to a rapturous applause from the crowd.

    Ashley O'Ryan approaches the podium in a slate grey suit. He smiles as he steps up to the mic.


    Ashley: Lady's and gentlemen, the next inductee into the 'all o' Fame is a man who truly changed the landscape of not just the FWA but in my opinion all of professional wrestling. This is a man who brought psychology into the forefront in a way that was better than anyone ever before and possibly ever again. A man who made his opponents fear the unknown and the darkness. A man who made all of us become emotionally involved, be it in hatred, sympathy, or joy. In his time in the FWA he was one of the most feared villains and beloved anti-heroes. On top of that, he made the leather jacket hotter than ever before.
    On a more personal note, this is a man who has been my worst enemy, my best friend, and my greatest tag team partner. If a tag team is like a marriage, 'e was truly me better 'alf.

    Lady's and gentlemen, the latest member of the FWA 'all of Fame – STU ST.CLAIR!!




    "Mr Crowley" by Cradle of Filth hits as Stu 'The Snake' St.Clair wearing silver suit with a silver tie; his long brown hair is tied up in a pony tail with his thick long beard in tow walks up to the podium. Stu looks at the seas of people in front of him cheering. Stu pauses as takes in the honor o being inducted into the FWA Hall of Fame.


    Stu "The Snake" St. Clair: I have been in here in FWA for nine years. I came here hoping for an opportunity. I didn't think I would have achieved so much when I first got here. It has been one hell of a ride. Performing under those lights in the ring across the world is feeling you can never shake. It doesn't get much better performing under those lights. Whether you liked me or hated me when I went into the ring I gave one hundred and ten percent. I was told the only thing were real in his business was the money and the miles. [* Stu pauses as he looks at the crowd.*] I wouldn't trade that for the world. Being here for so long is accomplishment. You meet people and wrestle them the same night. If wasn't for the fans there would be no Hall of Fame let alone a profession for us to have. I thank you guys for that. Time goes by so quickly. When I first got here I partnered up Mr Ashley O'Ryan and became Vodka and Venom. It was and still is good times. I haven't looked back since then being there with my best friend. I was fortunate enough to arrive to receive guidance earlier on from the likes of G-Rich, Jillian De Silva, The Inferno Ryan Hall and Ewan Edwards. Without them I do not think I would have gotten that far. When I won the North American title I thought that was as high I was going to get but I got higher eventually winning the FWA World Heavyweight Title. Enjoying every battle with Shawn Cortez, Darnell Porter and Nemesis down the road. About that time new stars were on the rise. Just as those vets helped me I did the same. I had the honor of wrestling Devin Golden as he became World Heavyweight Champion and by the way Devin I still got the scars from that match on my back. I just had the pleasure of wrestling Kaizan at Hell in a Cell. Also I enjoyed working with Jack Severino it was always a pleasure in the ring and out of the ring.


    Stu pauses before he continues to speak.


    Stu 'The Snake' St.Clair: Even though I only faced him one time it was enjoyable facing Chris Kennedy at Back in Business. I got a lot of favorite people I have faced over the years one of them being Wolf. When he faced me at Hell in a Cell when he won the World Heavyweight title that match couldn't get much better in establishing the powerhouse we have come to know. Nothing but good memories here. Even at this year's past Back in Business it was a honor to be part of the World Heavyweight Title Unification match and seeing Ryan Rondo walk away victorious. It was always fun facing him especially in the last couple years. Looking back where was then to where he is now shows the hard work of him. He shares an honor... a special honor. He is the last person I wrestled as I am retired. Going into this year I went to see my doctors involving my neck. Cervical spinal stenosis is what they found. I been told to stop wrestling as I could faced being paralyzed. I maybe retired now but my memories will live on thanks to fans. Also to the wonderful people of FWA presenting his honor to being inducted into the Hall of Fame. From the body of my heart once again I would like to thank each everyone of you for giving me one hell of a life in wrestling. On that note good night.


    COMMERCIAL BREAK


    We have a moment where the Quest for the Best trophy is looked at and the commentary team discuss the tournament before they begin to hype up the finals of the match. The lights in the arena dim as Zachary Kazadi makes his way out to "GOMD" for the second time tonight... and the for the second time, he is booed out of the arena. His opponent, "Tokko-yaro" KAIZEN has the opposite crowd reaction and the crowd cheer a massive amount for him - he is the clear favourite and both know it.


    Quest for the Best FINALS
    "Tokko-yaro" KAIZEN vs Zachary Kazadi



    The crowd are fired up for this - the majority of them are on the size of KAIZEN and that can be heard through their chanting as both opponents circle each other. Kazadi doesn't look so impressed with the crowd and taunts them about their chanting before he turns around to see KAIZEN coming straight at him... but he smartly slides out of the ring as the crowd boo. He walks over to a member of the crowd and gives them a stern telling off for it but KAIZEN comes out of the ring and attacks him with a few strikes before attempting to whip him... Kazadi reverses and sends him into the barricade instead. The FWA 'rookie' goes for a running boot to KAIZEN but the Japanese star moves out of the way as Kazadi stops himself short... KAIZEN drops under and sweeps him and Kazadi's head clatters off the canvas hard. KAIZEN picks him up and throws him back into the ring and Kazadi rolls into a kneeling position... and ends up receiving a volley of punishing kicks that sends him towards a corner turnbuckle.

    Langdon Trafford: KAIZEN with the fast start! He's showing no signs of wear and tear from his earlier match!

    Piers Gallagher: ...yet. This is all a ploy from Kazadi. Trust me.

    The crowd get hyped up as KAIZEN backs away and then steamrolls Kazadi with his STEEL BALL RUN (cannonball senton)... again Kazadi goes to the outside of the ring immediately afterwards and tries to clear his head before getting to his feet. KAIZEN comes out onto the apron and takes a run at Kazadi, throwing a vicious kick... but Kazadi ducks it and responds with a massive dropkick to the knee of KAIZEN and he buckles, falling onto the apron. Kazadi gets up and shows KAI disrespect by playfully kicking at his head. The crowd aren't appreciative of the lackadaisical attitude shown by him and they're vocal about it - Kazadi responds by throwing his arms up in the air and mocking them. He continues to pepper KAIZEN with the small shots as he slowly ascends to his feet. Kazadi isn't expecting much but KAIZEN catches one and drives his elbow right into the thigh of his opponent before turning him around and landing a tiger suplex on the apron! Kazadi flops off whilst KAIZEN tries to get himself more fired up. He doesn't want to give Kazadi time as he jumps down from the apron and rolls him back into the ring, following after. He goes for the early pin but Kazadi is able to power out of it right away and rolls away as KAIZEN drops some boots on him. Kazadi gets to his feet and responds to KAIZEN's strikes with some of his own - they go back and forth slightly until Kazadi clocks KAIZEN with a closed fist, following a warning from the referee. KAIZEN has fallen to a knee after the illegal strike but slowly starts to get up as Kazadi throws a vicious kick into his side, he repeats it again but KAIZEN catches it... Kazadi begs for mercy but KAIZEN sends him flying with a dragon screw!

    David Weinstock: KAIZEN has started this match well, he's getting the better of it!

    Langdon Trafford: He seems to have the answer for most of Kazadi's offense so far!

    Kazadi holds his leg in pain and KAIZEN definitely spots it as he starts throwing the boot in - the crowd are then surprised as KAIZEN grabs Kazadi by the ankle and gives him an ankle lock! Kazadi fights it for a few moments and tries to make his way towards the ropes... he looks like he's about to reach it but KAIZEN drags him all the way back to the center and then grapevines him! The crowd are on their feet as the supposed submission ace is on the receiving end for once! There's a few moments of the crowd holding their breath...

    Piers Gallagher: Kazadi's going to give up already. Guy can dish it out but can't take it!

    Kazadi is in a lot of pain but he eventually tries to turn and fight KAIZEN's hold on him... he uses his free leg to smash boots into KAIZEN's face before turning and twisting before he pops his leg out. He gets to his feet and quickly grabs KAIZEN and drops him with a DDT before rolling away and clutching his ankle, in pain. He is suddenly very serious as he realises that KAIZEN will have no fear in taking him on at his own game. He hobbles over to KAIZEN and picks him up, he grabs the arm and twists it. KAIZEN tries to respond by reversing the position - he eventually does so and grabs Kazadi by the arm.. but in a sudden movement, Kazadi is able to reverse the position, get behind KAIZEN and wrench the arm behind the back. KAIZEN tries a headtoss and Kazadi quickly slaps on the headscissors immediately after, KAIZEN gets out and gets to his feet, running at Kazadi... but he gets arm tossed. Kazadi then runs at KAIZEN and KAIZEN tries to respond with the arm toss this time... but Kazadi is able to keep a hold of him as he's tossed and uses the momentum to flip KAIZEN as well and straight into an armbar position! KAIZEN is stuck in the armbar, Kazadi wrenches on it and KAIZEN is seen, quite clearly, struggling with pain etched on his face. Kazadi goes belly down on the armbar but KAIZEN shows quick wit to make a turn and properly defend the armbar before slipping his arm out. Kazadi is flipped onto his back and KAIZEN quickly rushes over him and sinks in an armbar of his own! But it doesn't lead to anything as Kazadi thrashes out instantly and manages to get his leg on a rope. It's let go immediately and KAIZEN backs away from Kazadi. The crowd appreciate the grappling chess match as Kazadi returns to his feet and both men stare each other down. Kazadi shouts hostile words at KAIZEN with regards to his submission skills... and then, in a confusing display, drops to his back and beckons KAIZEN to play the game...

    Langdon Trafford: What is Kazadi doing?

    David Weinstock: This is typical submission stuff, Langdon. It seems to me that Kazadi is offended KAIZEN is trying to outwit him at his own game. He's lying on his back in his 'guard' position and beckoning KAIZEN in so they can battle with submissions. It's unorthodox to see this in wrestling... but KAIZEN has matched him so far. He won't be afraid. It's a smart move from Kazadi, he will slow KAIZEN down. The difference between this and pure grappling is that both of them are going to throw small strikes as they move. Look for little elbows and whatnot.

    Kazadi beckons him once more and KAIZEN takes a look around at the crowd who seem to have faith in him... he looks back at Kazadi and breaks into a run as he jumps over Kazadi's legs and looks for a double footed headstomp... but Kazadi expects it and twists, he vaults his legs up and grapevines KAIZEN's into a similar ankle lock from earlier... except with positions switched. Suddenly, Kazadi sits up and changes his position so that he can grab KAIZEN in a crossface before he quickly changes position once more and grabs KAIZEN into a fujiwara armbar! Now it's KAIZEN's turn to struggle to a rope - he gets there eventually but Kazadi takes the four count until he has to release the hold. The crowd boo him and he smirks as he gets to his feet. KAIZEN's momentum has been curbed - he holds his arm in pain as he tries to get to his feet but Kazadi grabs him and brings him towards the center of the ring and wrenches the arm forcefully to slam KAIZEN back down to the mat. KAIZEN tries to grab his arm as he reels in pain but Kazadi prevents him from doing so... he pins KAIZEN's arm down with one foot and then slams his other down. KAIZEN recoils in pain
    but Kazadi doesn't let him get away and continues to attack the arm. He grabs it and tucks it behind KAIZEN's head so that the elbow points upwards... and then he slams his foot right down onto it, the crowd boo as Kazadi enjoys KAIZEN struggling. For fun, he even holds the arm down as he tries for a pin but KAIZEN kicks out quickly.

    Piers Gallagher: Wear and tear, boys! Kazadi's having fun now!

    As soon as KAIZEN makes the kickout, Kazadi locks on the kimura and tries to work that. The crowd are trying their best to will KAIZEN on but he's clearly tied up and can't seem to break away from Kazadi's submission heavy game. He struggles with the kimura lock but he uses his strength to grab his attire and prevent the hold being wrenched. Kazadi tries to break the grip but KAIZEN uses the lapse in focus to reach a rope with his foot and Kazadi is, again, forced to let go. He sarcastically applauds KAIZEN for his effort before stomping him on the arm again. He picks KAIZEN up and looks to go for a hammerlocked suplex/brainbuster but KAIZEN knees Kazadi in the head as he's hoisted up in the air and prevents the move going through. Landing back on his feet, KAIZEN ducks a forearm attempt from Kazadi and responds with horizontal elbow strike that stuns his opponent... he then ducks another forearm and responds with an European uppercut before landing a spinning back fist! The sudden explosion of strikes has the crowd hyped back up - Kazadi turns his back, groggy, and KAIZEN runs onto him and sends him flying with a German suplex! Kazadi gets to his feet but KAIZEN runs in and repeats it again! The crowd are loving it as "Tokko-yaro" shows signs of life, he runs back to Kazadi and this time takes him out with a package German bridged into a pin....1......2......NO! Kazadi gets the shoulder up!

    Langdon Trafford: KAIZEN has some signs of life!

    David Weinstock: It looks like he realises he needs to beat Kazadi up instead of beat him at his own game!

    KAIZEN doesn't waste any time as Kazadi sits up... he bounces off the ropes and goes for the PK but Kazadi ducks under it and immediately rolls to a safe corner of the ring. He gets to his knee and both he and KAIZEN share a tense face off. The crowd are ROARING on KAIZEN.

    Langdon Trafford: Listen to this noise! KAIZEN has the backing of the Garden! He's one win away from completing his redemption! They're with him!

    Piers Gallagher: They're idiots. They've got the wrong man!

    There's some confusion as Kazadi holds his hands up and walks to the middle of the ring and holds his hand out... he implores KAIZEN to shake it. KAIZEN looks confused - he's unwilling to let his guard down and he takes a look around as the crowd shout for him to ignore it. He takes a step forward and looks at Kazadi... he goes to put his hand out whilst keeping an eye on Kazadi... who doesn't move at all. Kazadi tries to gain KAIZEN's trust as he turns to the fans and applauds him... he is encouraging the handshake.

    David Weinstock:
    It seems that Kazadi recognises he has a worthy opponent.

    Some fans quieten down as Kazadi returns to the middle of the ring - he puts his hand out again and says "Let's do this." - KAIZEN doesn't seem so sure as he comes forward and questions Kazadi... but he has no time to react as Kazadi gives him an eye poke!

    Langdon Trafford: TRICKERY!

    and then suddenly, Kazadi jumps onto him, he locks in a guillotine choke! The crowd let rip with ferocious boos as KAIZEN falls down and Kazadi tightens his grip. They're back on the ground and it looks like KAIZEN has nowhere to go as Kazadi adjusts his grip and modifies the guillotine so that his legs are over the arms of KAIZEN (Peruvian Necktie). He cranks it on it hard and KAIZEN struggles to fight it - he has absolutely nowhere to go! The crowd throw venomous boos at Kazadi who ignores them as he tries his best to force "Tokko-yaro" to take a nap. The crowd begin shouting nervously as KAIZEN struggles to deal with the hold. He tries valiantly to fight off Kazadi's hands but he can't seem to deal with Kazadi's legs. He's in trouble...

    Piers Gallagher: Ha ha! It's over! He's done! He's out!

    The arena is silent as KAIZEN's body seems to be going limp... Kazadi demands the referee ends the contest, he claims that KAIZEN is done. The referee comes over and wiggles KAIZEN's arm in the air... it looks like it is about to fall but KAIZEN keeps it up! Suddenly the crowd become encouraged as he looks to be continuing the fight against the hold. With Kazadi flat on his back, KAIZEN stands up and lifts Kazadi with him... he shows incredible strength to lift Kazadi up onto his shoulders! The submission has been relieved - KAIZEN now has the advantage as he has Kazadi on his shoulders but Kazadi fights him with elbows and falls off. He tries to grab KAIZEN from behind and go for a sleeper hold but KAI reads it and reverses the position and locks in a chokehold of his own! He doesn't even give Kazadi any time to fight the hold as he lets go and transitions it into an octopus hold, digging the elbow into the ribs of his opponent.

    Langdon Trafford: These two have had an interesting grappling contest at times!

    David Weinstock:
    You have to wonder though - is KAIZEN playing with fire too much? He's certainly willing to play the game but just think of how stupid he will feel if Kazadi gets an armbar?

    Piers Gallagher:
    Like a loser... because he will lose when that happens!

    Kazadi shows no sign of wanting to give up in the hold so KAIZEN slowly starts to let it go, Kazadi tries to struggle out of it but KAIZEN grabs him and lifts him up for the BREAKER (Pump handle Powerbomb) !! He goes for the cover....1....2....NO! Kazadi gets his shoulder up just in time. KAIZEN knows that wasn't enough and he measures Kazadi up as he gets to his feet... Kazadi has no idea what's coming but the fans are wowed as KAIZEN pulls out the SHINGATA 540 KICK! Somehow, Kazadi is still standing... but he's wobbly and he wobbles all the way back to a corner as KAIZEN comes running after him and hits his cartwheel elbow strike! It's all KAIZEN now as he grabs Kazadi and goes for the rope assisted Tornado DDT and then transitions it into a guillotine choke! Kazadi's struggling! The crowd can sense it as KAIZEN tries to wrap his legs around Kazadi's torso for the full effect of the choke... but Kazadi is fighting it. He is trying desperately to step over KAIZEN's leg whilst keeping his chin tucked... there's no way of knowing if it's locked in but the expression of pain in Kazadi's face suggests some discomfort...

    Langdon Trafford: This match has been a very different match from what you'd expect! It's a fast paced submission thriller!

    David Weinstock: The level of technique from both guys has been outstanding. I think we've seen more submissions tonight than Piers has changed tune about Kazadi!

    Piers Gallagher: Kazadi isn't anything special, Dave. I don't know what you're on about. Submission masters don't get stuck in these su--

    Suddenly, Kazadi creates a scramble where he manages to get to the ropes and KAIZEN is forced to let go.

    Piers Gallagher: I knew it! Excellent escape!

    Kazadi checks his jaw as he tries to get to his feet - he seems slightly shellshocked but he bullrushes at KAIZEN... and ends up flat on his back as KAIZEN pulls off the LIGHTNING STRIKE powerslam which certainly knocks the wind out of Kazadi's sails. KAIZEN gets the crowd hyped up as he goes to the outside of the ring and jumps up on the rope... springboard.....

    Langdon Trafford: X.U.!

    KAIZEN goes for the X.U. (Springboard 450 Splash) on Kazadi... but Kazadi just manages to react to it in time! He gets the knees up and then tries to small package KAIZEN! It could be over! 1....2......NO! KAIZEN powers out! It was close! Kazadi rolls under the ropes for safety and slowly gets to his feet whilst KAIZEN looks to come after him but Kazadi ducks under the ropes and shoulders KAI in the midriff. It stuns him for a moment but KAI comes back with a forearm strike attempt... Kazadi catches it and uses it to get an armbar from the outside! Kazadi hangs completely upside down on the apron with KAI leaning over the ropes trying not to let the submission sink in deeper...

    David Weinstock: Like him or hate him, that's impressive from Kazadi! I'm not sure it's legal though!

    Piers Gallagher: Who cares, Dave!? BREAK HIS ARM!!

    The referee eventually gets Kazadi to break the hold, he's quick to get to his feet as KAIZEN still stands at the ropes holding his arm... Kazadi grabs KAIZEN by the head and bounces it off of the nearest turnbuckle before hitting him with a pendulum kick and then sweeping his legs away from him through the ropes. "Tokko-yaro" is flat on his back on the canvas as Kazadi jumps up on the ropes and hits a springboard somersault leg drop! Even some people in the crowd are appreciative of it however they go back to cheering for KAI as Kazadi makes the pin attempt...1...2.....NO! He gets the shoulder up! Kazadi slams the canvas in frustation, he's sure he almost had it! KAIZEN can barely stand - he struggles to use one arm as he gets to his feed and Kazadi recognises this as he slams a kick right into the barely useful arm... KAI retorts in pain but responds with a hopeful kick to the leg of Kazadi... Kazadi responds with his same kick.... they go back and forth until KAIZEN fights the pain and grabs Kazadi's leg. In a sudden fast sequence, KAIZEN dragon screws Kazadi then immediately bounces off of the ropes and jumps onto Kazadi as he gets to his feet for a SLINGBLADE!! An epic exchange between the pair and KAIZEN ends up with the momentum! KAIZEN rolls under the ring ropes after the move and again stands up on the apron after nursing his arm a little - the crowd get ready as he watches Kazadi like a hawk... he gets to his feet with his back turned to KAIZEN...

    Langdon Trafford: Kazadi could be in trouble here...

    The groggy Kazadi turns around just as KAIZEN leaps up onto the rope for a springboard and comes flying in with a lariat.... BUT KAZADI JUMPS UP AND CATCHES HIM IN THE ARMBAR!

    David Weinstock: Unbelievable! What a counter! KAIZEN might lose the match here!

    KAIZEN is stuck with absolutely nowhere to go and Kazadi wrenches on the arm hard... KAI looks like he even considers tapping but he stops himself short. Kazadi begins to wrench it on even more and seems fully intent on breaking it but KAI tries to get back to his feet and in one sudden transition, Kazadi changes the submission up to his Canadian Omoplata shoulder lock! KAIZEN struggles for a moment as Kazadi holds onto his torse and prevents him from escape but eventually KAI swats his hand away after a while of struggling and forward rolls to escape the lock. Kazadi, still kneeling, is unable to react in time as KAI bounces off of the ropes and wipes him out with a PK! The crowd pop as that surely must be it! KAIZEN drops down for a pin...1...2.......NO!!! SHOULDER IS UP! KAZADI'S STILL IN IT! The crowd can barely believe it and neither can KAIZEN. He bounces off of the ropes and goes for another PK but Kazadi ducks under and then rolls away. KAIZEN smells blood and comes chasing after him but Kazadi manages to recover to a kneeling base and lands a sneaky dropkick to the leg of KAIZEN to send him flying. Kazadi gets to his feet and senses his opportunity as he runs in and goes for the Front Flip DDT! It looks like he is about to hit it but KAIZEN shows strength to counter it by prevent Kazadi from flipping over. He lifts Kazadi up so that he's almost completely vertically inverted... and then throws him so that he lands on his feet and then clatters him with a superkick! Kazadi is barely able to stand as KAIZEN grabs him and hits the MINORU special Piledriver!! The crowd count along with the referee as the pin is made....1....2.....3!!!!

    Langdon Trafford: FINALLY! KAIZEN HAS WON IT! THE ROAD TO REDEMPTION IS COMPLETE!!


    QUEST FOR THE BEST CHAMPION: "Tokko-yaro" KAIZEN



    David Weinstock: He managed to withstand the vicious assault on his arm and get the job done, congratulations to that young man!

    Piers Gallagher: Undeserved!

    Langdon Trafford: Lighten up Piers, that was an excellent contest!

    David Weinstock: Kazadi's stock goes way up after that... he had KAIZEN in trouble more times than I think I have ever seen!

    Piers Gallagher: Well... I guess he deserves it.


    Kazadi is understandably disappointed as he rolls out of the ring - he waves off the EMTs checking on him and looks incredibly frustrated as he trawls up the ramp having been handed his first loss in the FWA. He waves away fans that try to touch him and looks back at the ring with slight envy in his eyes. KAIZEN, however, enjoys his moment in the ring as FWA Owner Matthew Robinson comes in and presents him with a contract that guarantees him any title shot of his choosing as well as the FWA Quest for the Best trophy!

    David Weinstock: What a journey this tournament has been! Stars have been made... and one has been born again!

    Langdon Trafford: KAIZEN is back!

    Piers Gallagher: I really wish it was Phillip instead.

    KAIZEN celebrates his hard fought victory in the ring as confetti begins to fall - the crowd chant his name in full support of him and he shows his appreciation by acknowledging them all with a bow.




    We cut backstage as “The Golden One” Devin Golden is seen gathering his bags, preparing to leave the arena for the last time. Golden stops as the door closes behind him, and pauses for just one second, in complete awe, as he notices a hallway full of co-workers, many of which he had spent his entire career alongside. Production assistants, stage crew, ring crew, makeup artists, commentators, referees and wrestlers all stood along the sides of the hallway, applauding the memorable, legendary career of newest member of the FWA Hall of Fame.

    As Golden sheds a sly smile, trying to hold back the tears, he takes a single step forward and begins shaking hands with the many longtime FWA employees, who wish him well in whatever the future holds for him. Golden can’t help but let a tear roll down his face as he comes face to face with James Hughes. The two men embrace in a tight hug, with Golden whispering something in his ear, as they release their embrace. Standing behind Hughes is Gabrielle Montgomery, who gives Golden an embrace of her own, and it’s clear Devin is enjoying it. After they embrace, Golden gives her a nod of respect and continues on down the line through men like Wally Tusket, Mike Parr, Gingy Eastwood, Shannon O’Neal, Cyrus Truth and Bell Connelly. Golden moves on to Stu St. Clair, who also was inducted tonight, and shook hands with him. Golden told him that he had the utmost respect for his career, before moving on.

    And he stood face to face with Ashley O’Ryan. Golden extended his hand to the GM, but Ashley shook his head “No.” and embraced Golden. As the two released their embrace, Golden looked his former rival in the eyes and delivered one last “Slainte.” as he turned towards the door. And it was then where theat single tear turned into a waterfall, as Ryan Rondo stood in front of the door. T

    Rondo opened up the door for his former tag team partner and his best friend. Golden raised his head high, and took one solid step out the door as Rondo closed it behind him. Golden took one step forward, before looking back, at the closed door and the arena itself and muttering the words “Thank you. Thank you all.”

    Before getting clubbed in the back of the head by a mammoth forearm. Garcia grabbed the toboggan that Golden was wearing and pulled it down, covering Golden’s entire face,so that he couldn’t see.Garcia grabbed Golden by his collar and launched him into a brick wall. Golden’s body hit with a thud, as he stumbled backwards and down to the ground. Golden used his strength to pull of his toboggan just in time to see the “Monster of the Midway”lean down over his body and began drilling him with a barrage of rights and lefts. Garcia grabbed a hold od Golden’s lifeless body and again threw him like a rag doll, this time onto the hood of a car! Golden’s body literally hit and rolled right over the hood of a 1999 Jeep Wrangler. Garcia walked over to where Golden’s body rolled but was shocked to see that Golden was no longer there!

    Mike began screaming for Golden to show himself and that this is pointless, when out of nowhere , Golden showed up, his body wrecked with pain, with a steel pipe in hand! Golden charged forward and took a swing at the midsection, and then at the knee! With Garcia down to one knee, Golden quickly swiung the pipe at Garcia’s head, but he ducked and Golden smashed a car window with the pipe! Garcia took advantage of the misstep by headbutting Golden’s ribs and then grabbing the pipe and drilling Golden straight in the skull with it! Golden was busted open by the shot and clearly out of it, as Garcia lifted up his lifeless body and placed him on the hood of a Buick Skylark. With a look of reckless abandon in his eyes, Garcia nhooked him up and dropped him, skull first, onto the windshield. With a Light’s Out! Golden was an absolute bloody mess, as Garcia rolled him down to the ground by the tire of the Skylark as Garcia sat down next to him, Golden’s head in his arms. Garcia demanded the cameraman get a closeup of Golden’s bloodied skull.


    “You see this, Ashley. You’re fault. You don’t make the rules around here, Ashley. The game’s changed. Might makes right, my friend. This is only the beginning. You see, Ashley…LOOK AT HIM! LOOK AT HIM! THIS IS YOUR FAULT! I SHOULD BE FIGHTING FOR CHAMPIONSHIP GOLD! CONNELLY? WATKINS? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?”

    “This will continue, Ashley. This will continue until you recognize what I’m capable of, and you give me what I deserve. Thanks, Devin. Your entire career, and this…THIS is the lasting image you’ve left the FWA. This is what you were meant to do here. I’ve often wondered what you were good for around here. It was for this…this moment…you were put here to MAKE my career. Thanks for that.”



    COMMERCIAL BREAK




    Silence in the area as all eyes are on the ring where Kurt Harrington stands. The bell rings.


    Kurt Harrington: “The following contest is set for one fall...and it is for the FWA Undisputed World Heavyweight Championship!


    A good cheer echoes in the arena; the usual title animation swings into view .“Tell The World” by Eric Hutchinson kicks into gear and the entire arena gives a rousing, BIGcheer as the stage lights up in bright pink light . That music can only mean one thing, as Bell Connelly comes bouncing out, wearing a huge smile for such a huge stage. Despite how massive an occasion this is for her, that doesn’t stop her from approaching the situation with typical enthusiasm and impossible to match energy bounding and bouncing to and fro on the stage grooving and dancing before beginning her descent down to the ring, skipping and twirling down the ramp to the beat of her song. Throwing out hugs and high-five to the younger members of the FWA fan base.


    Langdon Trafford: It doesn’t get any bigger for Bell Connelly, but she looks ready for the occasion.


    Piers Gallagher: “Yeah, yeah, she’s all smiles now, but I promise you she won’t be smiling in the next few moments. She’s never been in this kind of match before, and she’s never had to deal with someone like Cyrus Truth, so the question is; can she match the killer instinct that Cyrus does?


    Bell glides up the steps and swings inside the ropes, She high knees it across the ring, up the turnbuckles raising her woman’s title up to the heavens as she spreads the love to the crowd enjoying the sight of the fans sending it right back. She hops down again so she can tour the corners, making sure she milks the occasion a little to sell the ‘big match feel. She closes her eyes and soaks up the atmosphere before she bounces on the balls of her feet and retreats to a neutral corner. The smile settling down into a focused smirk as she bends down ready the Disney princess of FWA…ready to become a queen .But one man is standing in her way….


    ...And sure enough ““Subconscious Entry Version” by Julia Claris as the lights in the arena die down, the festive atmosphere from Bell’s entrance is all but snuffed out...The frenzied lights are flashing, the beat is pumping through every man, woman and child in the building...and here comes the world champ Cyrus Truth. His prizes dangling from his neck as he steps onto the stage. It has to be said that his reaction is a lot more mixed than Bell’s was (Even through the cheers he does receive is a lot deeper than Bell’s, clearly having a lot of the adult male support while Bell’s fan base is dominated by women and children) But do you think he cares? Not one bit. He gazes down momentarily at his battleground, the light gleaming off his title belt before he marches forward, with nothing but bad intention on his mind. No fancy pyro, or theatrics. The FWA champion strolls down to the ring clearly focused on the task at hand


    Langford Trafford: In the eleven-year history of FWA, you can count on one hand the wrestlers that can match this man in sheer aggression. Piers, if you’re Bell Connelly, What’s your strategy fo even begin to bring the fight to this man?

    Piers Gallagher: To be blunt: I doubt she can. The facts are these, Cyrus is bigger and stronger than Bell by a considerable a distance, if Bell has any chase, she needs to play cat and mouse here. Dance out of Cyrus’s reach and just hope he makes a mistake.


    Cyrus heads around ringside before entering the ring and proceeding to parade the title in the corner, climbing the turnbuckles proudly, after posing briefly, the champion gets down from the ropes, making his way to his corner, as the bell rings for the introductions;


    Kurt Harrington: Introducing first, the challenger….from Phoenix, Arizona weighing into tonight at one hundred and fifteen pounds, she is the current reigning FWA Women’s Champion…


    ..At these words, Bell suddenly starts climbing the turnbuckle raising her title in the air once more


    Kurt Harrington: Bell Connelly!


    ...Only to backflip off the top rope for a GREAT pop landing catlike on her feet turning her eyes to Cyrus...and gently winking at him before retreating to her corner. She puts her hands on the top rope and gears herself up for this huge match tonight clad in a pink and silver variation of her usual attire.


    Kurt Harrington: And, from the long and winding road….weighing in at two hundred and thirty-two pounds...he is the reigning, defending, undisputed FWA Champion of the world! “The Exile” Cyrus Truth.


    A massive mix roar as Cyrus calmly steps forward and drops the title belt on the front of him and drawing his foot across it, the message clearly sent being sent, if you want this belt cross the line. Come get it. He picks it up gives it to the official while Bell passes off her own belt with a parting kiss. The man dressed like a zebra heads to the centre of the ring and raises the world title into the air. Bell’s eyes sparkle as she directs them right at Cyrus , but the champion’s gaze is locked on his title belt, a prize more precious to him than anything. Bell now looks at it too, as the belt gets passed to ringside and the two finally steps towards one another. Bell calm and eager to shock the world and take the title, while the vagabond king gears up to add another notch to his already-impressive reign...and the bell is called.



    FWA Undisputed Title Match
    "The Exile" Cyrus Truth (c) vs Bell Connelly


    DING DING!


    Instantly Bell is on Cyrus! Bell dives across the ring like she has springs in those sneakers of hers, leaping at Truth with a flying forearm followed by a series of strikes and chops., trying to put the champ on the back foot ...but her early aggression soon comes to a screeching halt. It only takes one heavy right hand from one the best pure strikers in wrestling today to drop Bell to the mat, and from there? It’s all Truth! The world champion unloads on Bell, delivering rights and lefts, body blows and straight jabs to her jaw, that leaves Bell staggering like she’s punch drunk! Cyrus forces Bell back to the corner then continues the beating while Bell is trapped against the turnbuckles. The ref tries to step in, but one harsh death stare from Cyrus is all it takes to silence the five-count. Cyrus turns back to Bell, clasps a hand around her throat, then manhandles her easily and props Bell upon the top turnbuckle. With her hand still tightly wrapped around Bell’s neck...Truth flings her from the top rope back into the ring...But Bell demonstrates some of that remarkable balance of hers landing on her feet in the middle of the ring to save herself from what might have been a killer fall. Truth turns to face her, and Bell catches him with a dropkick, but Cyrus is back up instantly, Connelly runs the ropes, building momentum only to run straight into a leaping calf kick from the world champ! Now it’s Truth’s turn to run the ropes and he comes back with a running knee drop across Bell’s face. Cyrus goes for the first cover of the match


    One! Two! No, Bell kicks out!


    Truth scoops Bell off the mat, lifting her up to drape the smaller woman over his shoulder. He heads for a corner, intending to drop Bell face-first across the turnbuckle. But Bell wriggles out the back door, sliding down Truth’s shoulder, then gives him a forceful shove into the corner. Truth collides chest-first with the turnbuckles, and Bell is right there to roll him up with a sunset flip pin when he staggers backwards! Cyrus’s shoulders are down -


    One! Two! But no, this time, Cyrus powers out!


    Bell could not keep Cy’ down, and the champ is back to his feet just as quickly as his challenger. A hard right-hand rocks Bell, who stumbles backwards, until Cyrus slams her down to mat. Bell is down, and 'Taker raises his arm into the air, signalling for Memento Mori.As soon as Bell manages to pick herself up off the mat, Cyrus grabs her by the throat. He hauls Bell up looking to sweep the leg but Bell slips free! Bell drops down, landing beside Truth, then scampers through the champion’s legs before she can be caught again. Bell runs to the corner, and speeds her way up the turnbuckles like Spider-Man! Now perched on the top, Bell wastes no time flying back into the ring to take the oncoming Truth down with a DIVING CROSSBODY! And Bell stays on top of Truth covering him -


    One! Two!


    ...


    No! Cyrus kicks out again, throwing Bell across the ring when he powers free!


    Bell is wide-eyed, as she picks herself up in the corner, recovering against the turnbuckles while she tries to plan her next move. But Truths already on his feet, and comes after Bell in the corner. Bell reacts quickly, ducking through the ropes to lever his body with a pendulum kick... but Cyrus catches her feet, and pulls her through the ropes back into the ring! Cyrus overpowers a struggling Bell , hoisting her onto his shoulders maybe looking for Journey’s end already. NO! Bell in panic mode kicks and fights off Cyrus and scurries to the corner while Cyrus just looks at her with a small smile playing on his face, letting Bell rest knowing full well that he won that first exchange...While Bell leans back in the corner perhaps it only now dawning on her, just how good Cyrus is.The pace starting to slow down after the fast pace of the opening Bell starts to tentatively approach Truth, the two beginning to circle each other then suddenly lurching forward into a lock-up, with Bell losing her footing for a second then attempting to drive Cyrus back. The champion has the edge in weight, so he’s the man doing the shoving, but Bell manages to put the brakes on before she can be pinned into the corner again. The two are tied up, so they have to detach limbs out of the stalemate, and now Bell returns to the centre of the ring. Cy looks unfazed, moving back to meet her and they lock up once more; this time, it’s Bell who gets the jump on her opponent, but Truth turns her into the corner at the last second and catches her with a couple of knees to the stomach. Bell groans, but shoves Cy away – but the world champ charges back in but gets caught with the point of Bell’s elbow! Back staggers the champion, so Bell steps up to the second rope… THEN COMES CRASHING INTO TRUTH WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK! The crowd cheers as Bell gets her first big move of the match… As Cyrus is forced out of the ring by the impact. Cyrus gets to his feet and swears under his breath in frustration he allowed that to happen but when he turns his attention back to the ring, BELL SLINGSHOTS TO THE OUTSIDE AND WIPES OUT CYRUS WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! Bell’s athleticism gets a great pop as Bell gets up again, a smile flashing across her face as it occurs to her that she might be able to exercise her unique offence in this match. and goes to pick Truth up. Before she can. Cyrus who has used the time to recover, surprises Bell with a dropkick to the knee! Bell falls and now Truth grabs Connelly by the long blond hair… BEFORE HE RUNS HER ACROSS RINGSIDE AND THROWS HER INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! It’s a thundering collision that gets the crowd “OHHHH”ing, and Bell, who flipped into the move and crashed back-first into the steel, now lies on the outside floor. Truth wastes no time before she yanks Bell up and shoves her under the bottom rope. The World Champion rolls in too, laying a couple of stomps on the arm – maybe targeting a weak point– before he backs off waiting for her to rise to her knees… before delivering the WANDERER’S WRATH The tables have turned, and now Truth is the man feeling the momentum, dropping into a cover…


    ONE…TWO...


    BUT BELL KICKS OUT THERE AND THEN!


    Truth pushes himself up and paces around the ring to get his breath. Bell begins to get up as well, but she takes a kick to the gut, then Truth looks to work the arm again, grabbing Bell’s left wrist and wrenching it into the Arm Wringer. We see Bell wince in pain as Truth fires a couple of kicks, targeting the arm again and again until Bell manages to spin herself out – DROPKICK! Both get up, so Bell launches into another Dropkick to bring Truth down for a little longer. The woman’s champion gets up, shaking out her left arm to sell Truth’s high ring IQ, trying to take away her glitter bomb or her springboard moonsault finisher. That said, Bell got the upper hand now, as Truth uses the nearby ropes to get up, and the challenger immediately grabs him, pressing him into those ropes and sending him to the other side. Truth rebounds, o Bell sweeps to the floor to let the champion run over her; “The Exile” springs back at her, but Bell leapfrogs him this time. It’s some good athleticism from Bell, though we’d expect nothing less, as Truth pings back a third time… BELL GETS UP ON THE HURRICANRANA – AND HOOKS A LEG TOO!


    ONE…


    TWO… BUT TRUTH KICKS OUT!


    Bell gets shoved away there, but she won’t be deterred – Truth gets up, shaking out the cobwebs and staggering into the corner to get his breath back. Bell tries to keep the pace up, charging in ...CARTWHEEL...KNEE….NO! Truth darts out the way, so Belli lands awkwardly on the top rope! There are groans in the arena as Bell’s huge leap takes her up to the top buckles, her knee caught… and now she falls back, hanging in the Tree of Woe! It’s rare to see it these days, and it’s not even by Truth’s design, but the World Champion won’t argue, taking a look at Bell’s vulnerable position for a moment – THEN DIVING WITH A NASTY DROPKICK TO THE FACE!!! Bell’s body crumples off the buckles, a violent hit from Truth doing the business there, and the champion moves over to drag Bell back to the centre of the ring. Once he’s left Bell lying still, he drops to his knees and presses Bell to the canvas…


    ONE…


    TWO… BUT NO! KICKOUT BY BELLI!


    Ohhhh that was close it looked like Truth’s first title defence was going to end after a moment of fortune and a moment of ingenuity from the champ, but we’re still going, much to the pleasure of the crowd many of which is now chanting for Cyrus! After some reflection Truth forces himself up; Bell, on the other hand, is on her hands and knees. Bell is having to shake her head, trying to find her feet, but certainly, she’s been rocked by that jarring dropkick and it may take the ropes for support. Truth wants control of this as a contest, though, so he’ll walk over to Bell and pull her up with a front face lock – he fires a couple of knees into Bell’s stomach, trying to wear her down, then goes back to the arm by bending it around the top rope. Bell gasps as Truth works the hold, like a Hammer Lock the ref steps in with some sturdy officiating work, a count… which reaches the inevitable four. Truth backs away, so Bell detaches herself and tries to get back into the game, but Cyrus is there again, sweeping in behind on the waist lock. He drags Bell so she’s a little more central, then looks for a dragon suplex – but Bell resists once, twice… then throws an elbow and sweeps out. It gives her a little room to hit the ropes, coming back with a clothesline – but no, Truth ducks it, then grabs that arm… FOR THE DOUBLE KNEE ARMBREAKER! The crowd groans at the sight of Truth executing that sweetly, and Bell staggers away into the ropes, clutching at her arm. Truth stays on it, pressing Bell into the ropes and whipping her across the ring on that hurt arm… Bell rebounds and meets Cy again – TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER FROM THE CHAMPION! Down goes Bell once more, her face really showing some pain now, and Truth again turns her on to her back…


    ONE…


    TWO… BUT BELL KICKS OUT ONCE AGAIN!


    Again, the crowd cheers as Bell keeps this contest going – after a good early spell, she has somewhat fallen away in the face of Truth’s signature smart and aggressive offensive work. Nevertheless, she’s forcing herself up, using her right hand to hold her back rather than her hurt left side; Truth notices this and goes back to the left forearm with a couple of hard right hands. It’s unorthodox by most people’s standards, but not by Truth, as the champion keeps the end in mind and tugs on the arm to bring Bell to her knees. He places the arm on the canvas and stomps on it a few times, then yanks her back up and whips her into the corner. Rather than charge in, the World Champion takes his time, getting hold of the arm again and tying it around the top rope. Bell groans in pain, instigating another count until Truth lets her suffer, Bell measures the recovering Bell… then runs in looking to inflict some pain again – BUT BELL SUDDENLY PROPELS HERSELF UP AND TRUTH’S FACE MEETS HER KNEE Truth staggering away, and now Bell heads to the outside, hauling herself to the top rope. The buzz builds in the arena as Bell prepares for something big, and a dazed Truth turns… SO BELL GETS AIRBORNE – AND DRILLS THE CHAMPION WITH THE TORNADO DDT!!! Both men go sprawling across the ring, as we see a couple of replays of Bell doing what she does best… and now it’s back to the ring, where Bell is pulling herself over Truth’s body…


    ONE…


    TWO… KICKOUT BY TRUTH!


    Bell tilts her head up and lets out a heavy breath. Truth doesn’t look any happier, now on his knees with a hand on his head. The champion really felt that last move, and it nearly cost him the World Title too. Bell gets up, using her right hand to hold her left arm, maybe just trying to limber it up and forget the pain running through it. In the meantime, Truth gets up, only to get turned by Bell and rocked with a right hand. A pop goes up as Truth reels, stumbling back into the ropes, and Bell follows up, throwing several right hands. Her left hand isn’t capable of much offensively, but she’s got her legs, and she lashes a hard kick off the champion’s side. Truth winces in pain, as Bell starts working her educated feet by continuing the stinging shots – this gets the crowd cheering, as Bell keeps going, forcing Truth all the way back to the corner! The champion looks pained, so as he covers up, Bell takes a run-up… CARTWHEEL HIGH KNEE A pop goes up as Bell rolls back down to her feet… THEN SENDS TRUTH FLYING WITH THE MONKEY FLIP! Truth crashes down on his back, pain wrecked across his face, as Bell finds her feet with the help of the buckles. A buzz goes up as Bell as she moves to the ropes looking for the Bell-Dog as Truth heaves his body up, and staggers up… SO BELL LAUNCHES HER BODY ONLY FOR TRUTH TO PICK HIM OUT OF THE AIR WITH A LEAPING ENZIGURI THAT LANDS PERFECTLY TO THE SIDE OF BELL’S HEAD WITH A CRACK!!! OUTSTANDING!


    Both are down here, but it’s probably a good thing because this crowd needs a moment to recover! In a match thought to be made by Bell’s unique offence, it’s Truth who comes out with the biggest moment of the match so far! What a beautiful move but the champion acted out of instinct after taking a string of offence and he needs a few moments to recover. Bell meanwhile, is huddled against the bottom rope, holding her head in what looks like severe pain, still trying to clear the fog. Naturally, it’s Truth up first, though he takes a moment to steady himself. He grabs Bell and pulls her up, throwing her into the corner and going for the left arm again with a couple of boots. Bell winces, so Cyrus takes charge by pulling her out of the corner… simply so he can force Bell through the ropes, holding on to her to keep her on the apron. Truth ties her opponent up by forcing the top rope over her head – Bell’s trapped here, so Cyrus winds back… and starts BASHING her in the lower spine with a series of forearms! The crowd groans as the shots build, putting Bell through considerable torment before the ref counts him off., Truth steps back, leaving Bell to try to get her tired body out of the ropes. She can’t, at least not before he moves in again, pulling Bell back through the ropes so she’s suspended a little on that middle rope – THEN GRABS HER AND FORCES HER ON HER SHOULDERS EXILE’S EDGE Truth lays Bell out, and the woman’s champ writhes in pain, but not for long… because Truth wants his win, forcing Bell away from the bottom rope a little before he hooks a leg…


    ONE…


    TWO… BUT NO! BELL FIGHTS OUT YET AGAIN!


    Cyrus looks out into the distance for a second, then down at Bell – the challenger is gritting her teeth, her left arm shuddering as she puts it against the canvas to try to push herself up. She gives up and reaches for the nearest rope, but Truth is up, throwing the stomps to Bell’s back, then the arm, before he drags her over to the bottom rope. and now he rams his boot into Bell’s neck, choking the life out of the challenger! Truth is deadly serious at this point, getting more and more wild-eyed as the match goes on. Any means necessary. No mercy from the champ. Eventually, Truth lets her go and steps back. As Belli retches and gasps on the mat. The Woman’s champ slowly brings herself up, looking fairly weakened by Truth’s brutal display so far – the champion isn’t done, either, stalking Bell and lining up a big German Suplex by getting her round the waist… but Bell resists , pulling herself down and sending Truth across the ring in the process! It’s Snapmare-esque, maybe not quite the actual move but a desperate variation as Truth scrambles back to his feet – and Bell knocks him down with a chop!


    Up gets Truth but Bell gets another chop to the chest to send him down again! Bell begins to fire up, though she’s certainly leading with her right hand as she hits a third of those chops. The left arm might be troubling her a little, but she’s feeling it now, as she turns smoothly on her heel to welcome Truth up once again… then DROPS him with an excellent snap DDT! and now she’s rolling bouncing back and forward feeding off the atmosphere Truth is down, centre of the ring, so Bell hits the ropes


    ….Cartwheel...Handspring...MOONSAULT...NO! Cyrus moves as Bell rolls sideways, her face is a mixture of pain and surprise. She gets up to her feet, wincing to sell the pain of the miss, and now Truth finds his feet, taking a step to set his shot – BUT THE BIG BOOT MISSES, WHISTLING PAST THE HEAD OF BELL AS SHE DOES THE BELLTRIX!… AND ROLLS TRUTH UP!!!


    ONE…


    TWO… BUT TRUTH KICKS OUT OF IT!


    After the kick out, the crowd groans as Bell’s surprise pin doesn’t get the three, and both scramble to beat the other to a vertical base – they get there at the same time, so they meet in the middle. Truth’s marginally quicker on the draw, getting a kick to the gut in, but Bell soaks it up and answers back with a right hand. Truth reels back, then throws his own punch; that glances off Bell’s chin, so the woman’s champ replies in kind… but Truth goes back to the left arm with a stinging kick. Bell winces, then throws a couple of kicks too, a good striker of those himself… but Truth keeps aiming for the left arm and that stings Bell long enough to give Truth a window. The World Champion whips Bell to the ropes, then lines up a Dropkick – but Bell grabs the top rope and hangs on, meaning Truth crashes into the mat and as Truth hauls himself up, Bell turns to the ropes, getting high on the springboard – AND WIPING TRUTH OUT WITH A BELL-DOG! It’s a beautiful piece of work from Bell who throws herself over Cyrus to make a cover – Has she done it?!


    ONE…


    TWO…


    NO! TRUTH GETS A SHOULDER UP!


    Bell can’t quite believe it this time – she thought he’d won it with that smart reversal and the subsequent big move, but the ref holds up an apologetic two fingers The crowd is chanting “LET’S GO CYRUS/LET’S GO BELL!” in their droves, which inspires Bell to keep up her offence. As Truth wavers up, he’s met swiftly by a European Uppercut by Bel, then again, and once more. Truth gets rocked with those shots, sending him back to the ropes – Bell sends him off to the other side, but Truth turns it around and sends Bell herself, by the head… it has enough force that the Woman’s champ goes over the top rope, but sticks to the apron. Truth darts in to knock her off, but Bell gives him a rough elbow for his troubles, so the world champ staggers away. Leaving Bell free to springboard, looking for a Springboard Clothesline – NO! Truth ducks under the arm, so Bell rolls as she meets the canvas, and now she gets up, spinning to face the champion… Truth scoops him onto his shoulders, turning and looking into the hard camera – BUT BELL ESCAPES! Bell hits the ground running, heading for the ropes and rebounding back at Cyrus, getting in a wheelbarrow hold, she goes for a facebuster….but Truth stops the momentum..and grabs her around the waist and slowly takes her over...DEADLIFT RELEASE GERMAN Bell get tossed like a ragdoll on that one, and the crowd freaks out as she lands in a heap…What a move!. The champion simply seems pleased nodding his head and crawling over to Bell to hook a leg…


    ONE…


    TWO…


    BUT NO! BELL KICKS OUT!


    A pop goes up, but Truth scowls. He thought Bell would go down with less of a fight, and he’s not seeing that here – he’s having to work to earn every move, without a pay-out for that work so far. Exhaling, he gets to his feet and takes a brief walk around the ring to clear his mind, prepare himself… but Bell is crawling for the ropes! A spike of frustration seems to go through him, but soon, snaps out of it and falls on his challenger with some cross-faced blows, before he forces her left arm behind her back for a grounded Hammer Lock and drops some knees to it. He turns and leaves Bell to suffer, running a hand through his messy black hair while his mind works. Obviously, he’s just been working the arm, so one move sticks out to him for his next venture… Bell uses her right hand to pull herself up, her head resting against the top rope to recover some strength before she turns. Cyrus Truth is not a patient man, however, moving over there and tugging Bell to the centre of the ring by that arm…But Bell pushes him away! Truth stumbles away to cheers from the crowd, hitting the ropes and coming back – Bell tries to hook him up with a hangman’s neckbreaker, This time, it’s Truth who gets out, spinning out and LAUNCHING THE ENZUIGIRI – DUCKED! Truth hits nothing but air with the deadly kick, so he stumbles sideways, giving Bell the room to measure the champion – Truth turns, so Bell RUNS right through him with a CONFETTI CANNON EXPLODER DROP KICK!


    Truth gasps in pain and holds his stomach – is the tide turning? The crowd certainly think so, as Belli gets the better of that last exchange, and now she kips up smoothly and stumbles into the corner her hair in tatters and looking in a bad way but clearly in the zone now, looking to finish things off...Cyrus turns around...GLITTER BOMB.NO! Cyrus shifts his weight and grabs Bell by the throat MEMENTO MORI! Bell spirals sideways, out of the ring, and she lands awkwardly on the outside floor – Truth looks frustrated by that, but he’s got the upper hand now, especially after that possibly-decisive counter.


    On the outside, Bell’s teeth are bared, trying to ignore the pain coursing through her and maybe just attempting to focus. Truth has a hand on the middle rope, looking down at Bell from a knelt position, as the Woman’s champion crawls for the barricade and begins to force her broken frame into action. Her left arm, which she, unfortunately, fell on seconds ago, is slightly limp and won’t do what she tells it, so she uses her right hand to prop himself up. Champion and challenger stare at one another, both breathing heavily, as the ref starts a count to usher an exhausted Bell back inside. Bell has her right elbow against the barricade, the forearm across her stomach as she tries to breathe, while Truth’s face is red and he seems just as fatigued. Slowly, Bell forces her body back towards the ring, rolling inside at a count of seven… and back to the shenanigans we go, as Truth goes for his opponent and starts nailing her with nasty stomps! but Bell rolls sideways and finds the ropes again to make Truth give him some respite. The ref steps in front of the champion, forcing him away, but Truth darts around him and pulls Bell up by the roots of her hair. He tosses Bell across the ring, now officially losing his patience with her but the woman’s champion forces herself up to her knees, then starts to struggle up to his feet. But Cyrus is right there grabbing Bell by the left arm to whip her into the corner. Bell hits the buckles hard and comes back across the ring, as Truth charges for a decapitating clothesline...but Bell ducks ….Truth goes to rush her again on the return...BITTERSWEET CHIN SYMPHONY! OUT OF NOWHERE THE SUPERKICK LANDS FLUSH ON CYRUS’S CHIN AND HE FALLS LIKE A LOG. Bell is invoking the ghost of her -Cough- Personal friend Chris Kennedy to win the title, sending the crowd on their feet chanting for “The Astonishing One “ But Bell can’t capitalise instantly collapsing from fatigue….It takes a few moments before Bell is able to drape her arm across Cyrus


    ONE…


    TWO…


    THR-NOO!!! TRUTH GETS A SHOULDER UP!!!


    If you doubted him, there’s your answer – incredible resilience to fight out from Cyrus Truth, the entire building is rocking with much of the crowd on their feet, Bell, on the other hand, is stunned. Her head in her hands, not sure what else she can do but she swallows her disbelief and gets up once again. She stumbles, her body shuddering under the strain of this difficult match, but she props herself up against the ropes and listens to the building noise all around the building making her nod her head – she leans down to adjust a kick pad, then bounces lethargically on the balls of her feet and gets back to business. Cyrus Truth in the corner, trying to forge a recovery of his own, but behind him crouches his challenger, gearing up for what must surely be the finale now. The World Champion shoves himself away from the turnbuckles and meets Bell, who looks for some kind of move – NO! Truth gets a hand on Bell throat and shoves the Woman’s champ away, into the ropes… Bell ducks a clothesline on her return… DROPKICK PUTS TRUTH DOWN! Both struggle slowly back up, the Vagabond King retreating back to the corner, but Bell follows him in and hoists him to sit on the top rope. Bell steps up too, surely looking for a big ending, but as she hooks up a possible Superplex, Truth fights back with a series of flurried right hands to the ribs! You can just make out Bell’s face contorting in pain from this camera angle as Truth aims a few blows at the left arm, for good measure, then puts his foot on Bell’s chest – AND SENDS HER FLYING OFF, DOWN TO THE HARD CANVAS BELOW!!! Bell crashes and burns, a horrible slam into the deck, but Truth isn’t done, hauling his frame to stand on the top buckle… THEN THROWING HIMSELF OFF WITH An ELBOW DROP, THE POINT OF HIS ELBOW LANDING PERFECTLY ON BELL’S HEART Truth is pulling out all the stops to win and he has an opening, so Cyrus Truth leans back and grits his teeth, trying to ignore the pain as he makes the crucial pin…


    ONE…


    TWO…


    THR-NOOO!!! BELL WON’T STAY DOWN! KICKOUT!!!


    What the hell is it going to take?! Cyrus pounds his fist against the mat as the ref confirms that it was only two! Truth rests his back against the ropes, still seated, while Bell Connelly stares out of the ring with unfocused eyes attempting to find some kind of way to get up. No doubt, she’s tired, she’s hurt, her left arm has taken a fair bit of punishment and that could yet come into play, but she’s still in with a shot, especially with Truth looking just as tired. That said, it’s the champion who’s first to his feet, scowling at the sight of Bell as she tries to put a hand on the middle rope and get up – no, Cyrus wants her up his way, pulling her up by the neck and getting the front face lock. BUT BELL CONNELLY SUDDENLY BURSTS TO LIFE..GLITTER BOMB! SHE NAILS IT. QUICKLY SHE CRAWLS INTO THE COVER


    ONE…


    TWO…


    NEW CHAMPION – NOOOO!!! HE KICKED OUT!!! TRUTH KICKS OUT!!!


    NO! NO! THIS MATCH KEEPS GOING. Cyrus Truth becomes the first person to kick out of the Glitter bomb. Bell can only look to the heavens her face crumpled in an “If I don’t laugh I’ll cry expression” Heartbroken. So close but yet so far from immorality Truth denied her as the ref’s hand came down a third time – the crowd are still trying to catch their breath, but that’s something both wrestlers can sympathise with. Bell heaves herself up again, running a hand over her head and pacing a little, as Cyrus forces that lean body of his into action as well. The two meet in the middle again, and for a moment we’re back to trading blows – perhaps in times like this you know nothing else but attack with anything you have. However, Cyrus Truth knows exactly where to go, lashing a trademark kick to Bell’s left side, that arm again taking the brunt of the impact. Bell cries out and stumbles to the edge of the ring, Truth stays on her, pressing her into the ropes and whipping her to the opposite side. Bell rebounds somewhat weakly, coming back to a clothesline that takes her down, then a crisp Back Heel Kick when she tries to get up again. This has her staying on her knees, holding her chest and stomach in pain, and it gives Truth the opening he wants… TO SUPERKICK BELL RIGHT IN THE JAW!!! The CRACK rebounds off the arena walls, and Bell lies flat after that mind-numbing shot from the World Heavyweight Champion.


    The question is – is Truth content there? Evidently not, because although Bell seems like she’s in la-la land, she’s still awake, just in considerable pain and finding it difficult to recollect herself. Truth frowns at the sight, as Bell slaps her right hand into the deck and – the girl won’t lie down – begins to struggle up. She’s not very successful, but the intent is there, so Truth weighs her up, then yanks her up and TURNS… RIGHT INTO THE LONG ROAD TO NOWHERE, DRIVING BELL BACK DOWN AND LOCKING IT IN!!! Bell just screams, the hold tormenting him as the pain shoots through her neck and arms the very same appendage that Truth spent precious time working on, preparing for this very moment, and it shows in Bell’s face, possibly signalling the end of her first World Title challenge! Truth is frantic, breathing in every second of making the Women’s champion suffer in this killer submission, tugging on the arm and neck and trying his hardest to force as clean a win as he’ll ever come across! Bell’s free arm, her right side, flails desperately as she tries to find the bottom rope, and although this crowd would love nothing more, it must feel like miles away! Bell bares his teeth, trying to silence her roars of agony for her own benefit, trying to refocus despite the pain she’s forced to endure… and now she begins to edge himself, bit by bit, towards the bottom rope! Cyrus shakes his head, tearing on that arm as if his life depended on it, but Bell refuses to let this famous moment disappear out of her hands… so she keeps her slow movements going, trying to haul both herself and his opponent towards that decisive rope – ONLY FOR TRUTH TO LET GO, DRAGGING BELL BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND LOCKING IT IN AGAIN!


    Truth knew Connelly was going to slip out, so he corrected, and now it’s only a matter of time! Bell is in living hell, She’s watching her dream disappear with every passing second! The crowd, encouraged by the fact she hasn’t tapped yet, begins to chant “Bell! Bell!” again and again, trying to inspire her, but Bell looks helpless, her right hand searching the mat but inevitably finding no bottom rope, nothing that might help her. “THIS IS MY DESTINY! YOU HEAR ME?! MINE” Cyrus is heard to scream “YOU CAN’T STOP IT!” -- Bell Connelly has a world of pain and anguish on her face as the words clearly reverberate around inside her troubled mind. She knows she has no option left now... there's a small tinge of disappointment in her eyes as well as many people in the crowd's as her hand hits the canvas thrice in quick succession. Bell Connelly has tapped out.

    Winner and STILL FWA UNDISPUTED CHAMPION: "The Exile" Cyrus Truth

    Bell Connelly lays defeated in the middle of the ring, half of the crowd are silent whilst half of the crowd are in uproar. Cyrus Truth stands tall as the FWA Champion to end the Anniversary Show.

    Re: FWA 11TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW RESULTS

    Cyrus winning is a statement victory for his title reign. Bell getting that close is affirmation she is a main-eventer, if there was ever any doubt left.

    KAIZEN-Cyrus, whenever is happens, is fantastic. Let me also state the Watkins-Parr showdown was everything it could've been from a RP standpoint. The match was solid and Parr winning is big — it puts something behind his words. The TV Champion gimmick just gained some credibility. Before this win, it was all words. Now it is legitimate in some way.

    Eyesnsane defeating Mac was known but it's a good push for Eyesnsane. With the massive overhaul in the roster, Eyesnsane has stepped in big time and really deserves a massive push into the main event. I don't know how being the sole owner of the tag team championships helps him long-term, but in the short-term, it's something no other FWA character can boast.

    Anzu, Shannon, Eimi all showing out, along with Kazadi and Randall. Big wins. I wish we got more from Gingy Eastwood in his promo. I also wish we pushed more of these mid-card and newer characters in segments. Kazadi in a segment. Randall in a segment. Parr and Watkins in segments. I think that's what is missing right now. Only thing, really. One thing I did like is Mike Garcia making his presence felt despite not being in a match. He planned it: a big moment, a big segment, and really stood out there.

    Also, major honor for the Golden character to be in the HOF. Meant every word of my speech. Of course, this was Stu's night and Golden took the beta male spot, as he should and as he always has in the Stu-Golden Crossfire dynamic. Very good show and I think this is a beautiful transition to highlight the characters who should step higher and move into more prominent roles. This was the first real big show without any sign of Stu, Kennedy, Wolf, Golden, Rondo, Gabrielle, or Hall somewhere on there in ... at least nine years. Think about that. It's frightening and it's also exciting.

    Re: FWA 11TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW RESULTS

    Was 99% sure I wasn't coming away with the win after reading KAIZEN's RP and then 100% after reading Shake's, just a shame circumstances prevented SS from his usual showing or it might have been Anzu giving KAIZEN a great showing Nevertheless, the end result was always going to look better with KAIZEN going onwards to a championship shot, a bit sad it can't be against Kennedy for redemption but Cyrus Truth vs. KAIZEN should be an equally exciting match-up.

    Kazadi still isn't quite at the level I'd like to be at with RP's (as evidenced by his defeat) but there should be exciting times ahead for him nevertheless. I think only Anzu came out of this without looking better, but I'm sure she'll pick things up soon. Eimi looked great against KAIZEN and that could've easily been the final round, and Kazadi looked amazing against KAIZEN as well despite the ultimate defeat. And I've got my share of ideas to hopefully allow Kazadi to step up moving past the Anniversary show.

    Finish to the Bell vs. Truth match is pretty tremendous, sad to see Bell tap out but it says a lot about Cyrus Truth's "long and winding road" that he was able to do that to arguably the biggest face in town right now.

    As for the other stories of the night. I wasn't expecting Watkins to lose heading into this, but SS will move on quickly and it'll great for Mike Parr who gains some sort of legitimacy, seems like past Truth/Watkins having challengers, Parr will have to find one and I can only presume someone like Shannon O'Neal might get that opportunity after beating two of the 'top' singles wrestlers.

    Tag team division has admittedly looked super weak lately between going from two odd balls winning it, to being fought for an every man for himself pole match, to now being fought in a singles match, it's lost its way from what it should be being fought over, two unified teams. Hughes will have to find a partner to make a legit run of the belt, or somehow end up losing it to another pair of wrestlers who might be able to revitalize the division but if he's aiming for main event stardom along with guys like Mike Garcia and Mike Parr and even JLW who all seem to be at the edge of it, then he probably needs to shed the tag title and division, it actually would've been better for Michaud to win and find himself a tag team partner, I imagine.

    Garcia has a lot of heel momentum coming away with the beatdown of Golden though I'm not sure he gains any sort of 'legitimacy' in that regards, he still needs a big win to push past those fellow guys trying to break into the main event scene. I wonder who's going to step up and defend Golden's honor, my money might be on a return, perhaps a Rondo or even a PAJ.

    As for Randall, congrats on the win and hopefully he can step it up against a super tough JLW challenge.

    Great read all in all and I'm sure KAIZEN/Cyrus Truth might offer up one of the better matches of the year if KAIZEN brings his BIB-level showing and Truth brings in what he brought for this PPV.

    Am curious as to what will happen with Bell going forward, how she'll relapse from the defeat and who she'll end up being challenged by, obvious money is on Eimi or Anzu what with Shannon seemingly penetrating the ranks of the FWA's men.

    Great show. Good to see KAIZEN at the top. He was my main rival before I left and now with toner and Ramon leaving, the only one left that I worked with extensively. Rly excited to get started again once I have everything sorted out.

    But anyway, good show and congrats to everyone who won. Good to see eyesnsane being pushed too and I'm looking forward to Cyrus vs. KAIZEN

    Ah, I love you too.

    Great job on the match though. And you can still take heart in the fact that you still have more wins over me than I do over you.

    Re: FWA 11TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW RESULTS

    This show is somewhat a small reflection on our roster size. It's getting smaller - which is fine. But also, it proves that we can have some new stars in our midst. Kazadi already has big potential, Parr, Watkins, Bell and Cyrus had great showings too and coupled with Eyesnsane and the idea that other main eventers could yet return, we've got a solid upper midcard... add in KAIZEN too after his win. He's obviously going for the world title at this point - anything else feels pointless to me. That's a solid top of the card. Then we've got a talented women's division too with the person who finally dethrones Bell Connelly accomplishing something massive. The only thing that's lacking is our lower card, to a degree, and the tag division. We just need to get those things fixed up and we will be decent. It's likely we will see more men vs women sort of matches on the lower card.

    Garcia had an interesting segment and really it's now trying to build something from it.

    I'm interested in Monarch potentially having a new character but Wally and Iliad seem like they will be busts which is disappointing.


    Thanks to those who contributed to the show. Congrats to KAI. Solid work. Close match.... next time son.

    If you're up to it pm me to figure something out.. I'm gonna be writing something soon with my original plan, but I could easily pivot to TnT

    TGO is right unfortunately. No I'll let you stick to your original plan for now, I can't commit. Wouldn't be fair. Down the line I'm sure Marcus, Danny and Brennan will thread those waters again.
