    Tag League Final 2018 RESULTS

    A video of an arena shot of the first day of Tag League opens in slow-motion. In real time, an abbreviated version of "Dont Be Silent" by John Dahlbeck plays as the arena shot is replaced with shots various Tag League participants walking down the arena ramps.

    We see DFB with their aloof sneers.

    We see Mad Kingdom, with Penny clutching her cats tightly while Jason Randall leads the way.

    There is Shannon and Bell holding the World Title belt together. Then Izzy Van Doren sliding into the ring while Starr hangs on the top rope and the apron.

    We see Genocide murking the camera before the shot switches to Phillip A. Jackson pointing something out to Michael Garcia.

    We see Eimi Sanada waiting for a pack of insta-curry to cook in a microwave backstage.

    The shot then switches to The Echo gesticulating for the camera, and Chris Kennedy in the ring while Ryan Rondo leers on the apron.


    "LIFT IT UP HIGHER..."


    The shots change back to slow-motion scenes of DFB defeating SCV on Day 1.

    "LIFT IT UP HIGHER...."

    We see scenes of BUCK helping Christopher Manson to the back.

    As the music crescendos, the shots suddenly speed up. We rapid-fire see SCV defeating HYPERVIBE, then Jason Randall sweeping Penny into his arms after Mad Kingdom defeat DFB. We see Shannon O'Neal and Bell in the ring after a dominant win, then The Echo taking out PAJ. The scene switches to Izzy Van Doren grabbing the pin for her team, followed by quick shots of a cluster of Chris Kennedy superkicks which led to a sweep of Block B.

    The music crescendos with shots of Chris Kennedy looking equal parts incredulous and confident as he and Rondo roll through their opponents. The shots then switch to SCV pulling off the victory over Bullets and Bubblegum in the final block match.

    SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 18th, 2018
    LIVE FROM THE O2 ARENA, LONDON, UK


    The pyro goes off inside the O2, where the crowd cheers while hoisting up signs to the roving ringside camera that read things such as "DUB CHAMPYUN!!!!", "IZZY2STARR: R U LOOKIN @ MAH BUM??", "T'Y, WAKANDA4EVA", "CHAIN CHAIN CHAIN, CHAIN OF FOOLZ", "PARR GIVES ME A HARD BREXIT", "DEXEPTION", "LOCKE AND KEY", and "HOW DOES ONE HOLD FRED WITHOUT GETTING YOU SHIT SCRATCHED????"

All of this is tonight, and we are starting straight away here in London!!!

    ----

    "Red Right Hand" plays as Bobby Smooth and Cody Mundz are the first out for the opening match.

    Langdon Trafford: And we kick off tonight with a special tag team match, featuring first, the oh-so-controversial team of Mundz and Smooth, the DFB!!! And while the DFBs run in WS3T has devolved into a free-for-all shot across the bow against the FWA at large, we must remember, ladies and gentleman, they beat the World Tag Team Champions!!

    Piers Gallagher: If you needed any more proof about what a CUCK Ashley O'Ryan is look no further than this match!!! THESE INVADERS SHOULD BE DEPORTED BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM!!!


    The Echo is out next, with Ethan Connor jovially sticking his tounge in the middle of a V sign for the ramp camera.


    David Weinstock: Tell you what, guys, I don't know if we'll see either The Echo or DFB in FWA after this, but they have one last chance here tonight to get one of a distinguished opponent and make a lasting impression on the FWA fanbase!


    WS3T Finale - DFB vs The Echo

    And it is Ethan Connor and Cody Mundz that are going to start this one off! Cody Mundz already in a wrestling pose, trying to figure out how to start this one off, but the Ethan ust seems to want to make a mark tonight, He flies forward and catches Mundz off guard with a kick to the stomach, and now begins to pound away at his back-- but the shots are having their desired effect, as Cody straightens his back in pain and tries to escape the shots, walking away and in to the ropes. Ethan follows him over, but as he steps over to his legal opponent, a kick meets him in the gut, and now it’s Cody turn to get some shots in, grabbing the arm of Ethan and punching it across the elbow joint! Ethan cries out in pain as he shakes his arm free, trying to shake the pain away, but Cody steps forward and grabs him by the head, locking on a rather tight and vigorous headlock. Ethan now has to try and wriggle free, but Cody got this one on tight, and the only way to get out seems to be to grab the ropes; that’s what Ethan does, but instead of grabbing them to force the break, he pushes his opponent in to them, and throws him forward, whipping him across the ring and off the ropes on the opposite side of the squared circle, but Cody was only whipped because he wanted to be-- on the rebound, he catches Ethan with a running shoulder block, knocking his opponent to the ground with a slap. Cody looks around the arena, before running off the ropes to his left; Truth rolls on to his belly, Cody now has to jump over his downed opponents body, running off the ropes on the right side; Ethan is back to his feet, and Leapfrogs Cody landing flat on his feet, but if he thought that would be enough to give him a minute to prepare some offense, he should think again! Cody stopped dead in his tracks after the Leapfrog, and as Ethan turns around to catch what he thinks will be his re-bounding opponent, Cody just LEVELS him with a Clothesline! JBL would have been proud of that lariat, as Cody dives in to the cover!

    ONE!

    And it’s a simple kick out in the end from Ethan , who rolls his shoulder off the mat, and then begins to roll himself to his own corner as Cody desperately tries to catch up to him and keep him legal, but the tag is made, and his brother can now enter the bout for the first time. Cody has to climb to his feet quickly, having been caught scrambling across the ring on all fours to keep Ethan legal, but Drew is quick enough to take advantage as he hits a running Clothesline to his knelt opponent. The shot catches him across the chin, and the smack was audible, but Drew will never be caught worrying about the well-being of his opponents. Cody fumbles back to his feet, but Drew has the momentum, and as Cody gets to a vertical base, Dolph just sends him back down with that textbook and picturesque dropkick we’ve all come to know and love! Cody hits the ground with a thump, as Drew dives across the mats, sliding rather suavely by Cody’s side and locks in a grounded Headlock, keeping up the control and keeping his man grounded. Drew looks around the arena with a smile, and the fans begin to boo; Drew doesn’t have to say it, we all know that behind those eyes, he’s shouting “HOW GOOD ARE WE?”. Cody is beginning to claw to his feet, and as both men begin to stand, Cody drives an elbow shot or two in to the mid-drift Cody is forced to relinquish the hold to tend to his winded body, but the separation gives Cody the chance to try and get some momentum going again. He pulls off the standing switch, and wraps a waist lock on Drew who instinctively rushes forwards and hooks the top rope with his forearms, using the springy momentum from the ropes to pushes Cody off of him; Cody rolls through the momentum, and gets to his feet in the center of the ring, before beginning a rush forward. Drew has seen it coming though, and manages to get out of dodge before Cody strikes him, meaning he has nowhere to go but straight in to the ropes! Cody catches the top rope across the throat, and in a flash,Drew lines him up grabbing him by the back of the head-- SLEEPERHOLD COMING!

    But Cody keeps Drew arms off his throat, rendering the hold useless, before dropping to his knees and throwing Drew over his head! It’s now Dolph’s turn to roll through the momentum, but as he stands up, he’s bought face to face with the man standing on the apron--Bobby Smooth, Smooth fakes a punch and Drew instinctively moves to dodge it and that distraction is all Cody needed. The Clothesline strikes, and Cody tags in his patner He steps over the ropes to a huge ovation, and begins to walk over to Drew, who had scrambled away from the corner of his opponents and in to another corner, Bobby makes his mark on this match with a HUGE right hand to the head of Drew, and the business is unloading with shots to the head and stomach of Drew After a good six or seven knock-out shots, Smooth lands one more massive blow, before turning away, and running off the ropes on the opposite side of the ring; Drew stumbles out of the corner, as Bobby Smooth springs off the ropes, and raises his leg for that Big Boot! But Drew looks like he’s just seen a ghost train running towards him at 400mph, and throws himself out of the way and flails his arms around the place as races over to his own corner; it’s obvious Drew doesn’t want to deal with the massive brawler Ethan Connor is legal again, but he doesn’t look like he wanted to be! He looks at his brother with a look that almost seems to scream “WHAT?!” But Drew points his partner in to the ring, as the referee calls for the new legal man to enter, too. But if he was hoping to enter the ring with some form of grace, it won’t happen; Bobby Smooth grabs him under the arm, and Arm Drags him over the ropes and in to the ring! Drew shot from the ring like a bolt of lightning as he noticed Bobby stride over,but the younger Connor is now in deep doo-doo-- and that’s the truth. Bobby is in no mood to play games and the poof is in the force he puts in to the Big Boot he cracks Ethan Connor with! Ethan slams in to the mat and bounces back to his feet, where Bobby scoops him up on to his shoulder, and carries him in to the corner, looking for Snake Eyes, but Ethan wriggles off his shoulder and drops to the mat-- in desperation, he grabs Bobby round the waist, and pulls him backwards, rolling him up in the process! With his shoulder’s down, Ethan is pressing his whole body weight down from this seating position, and could have the win right here!

    ONE!

    …

    TWO!

    But Bobby Smooth kicks out, and due to the unorthodox nature of the pin, and more specifically, Ethan Connor’s position, the force sends him off the cover and straight in to the second turnbuckle! Ethan holds his jaw in pain, as Bobby climbs back up to his feet, looking back to his opponent and plotting the next heavy hitting move. Ethan rests against the turnbuckle, as Bobby Smooth fires himself up and runs at his opponent, looking to Clothesline him in the corner, but Ethan see’s it coming, and lifts Bobby up, Flapjacking him across the top turnbuckle pad! He races away, and springs off the ropes on the far side of the ring, and as Bobby stumbles in to the center of the ring, he is met by a Enzuigi ! That hit hard, and Ethan Connor could be a second away from the pin!

    ONE!

    …

    TWO!

    …

    NO!

    Nothing will keep Bobby down, and Ethan Connor is up to his feet, and looking around for some kind of inspiration. But up on the apron now is Drew; he’s not offering his hand out for a tag, but he’s calling for Ethan Connor. Ethan turns to his brother, who shouts the words “SHUT HIM UP, E!”. Ethan Connor gets the message, and smiles widely, nodding at the call. He looks back down to Bobby who is climbing to his feet, just waiting for him to turn around… he does, Ethan Connor strikes!


    OHHH NO! BOBBY DUCKS, AND ON THE REBOUND AND POPS HIM UP AND LETS HIM THUNDER BACK DOWN!!

    Bobby Smooth has ploughed Ethan Connor damn near through the canvas! The force of the move is enough to make Bobby Smooth stumble back, with the fans going WILD in the stands at that move! How the ring, or Ethan Connor’s back, is not broken from the force of that slam is amazing! Drew Connor doesn’t look happy on the apron, his hands on his head and his eyes wide, as Bobby roars out and makes the cover!!!

    1......

    2.............

    Ethan dives in and breaks it up, desperately pushing Bobby off with a lunge. Bobby rolls back and Cody tags himself in! Cody grabs Ethan and smacks him hard with a few knees in the corner before beckoning for Bobby. The two grab Ethan by the arms and shoot him from corner to corner, but Ethan avoids the impact and uses his momentum to flip himself over the turnbuckle!! Ethan lands on the apron, then pulls the rope down as Bobby charges, sending smooth flying over the top rope!!! Cody grabs Ethan by the head, but as the ref is checking on Bobby, Ethan screams out "YOINK!!" and pokes Cody in the eye with his fingers!!! Cody yowls in pain, but he still has Ethan by the head and flings Ethans head down against the ropes, bouncing him off the apron!! But Drew slides under the blinded and stumbling Cody and rolls him up!!!!!

    1..........

    2................

    3!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Winners: The Echo
    Drew immediately slides out of the ring to avoid Cody and collects his brother at ringside. Ethan spares one last petty kick on Bobby as the Connors jog up the ramp with huge grins on their faces.

    Langdon Trafford: An eye rake!!! That was all the opening The Echo needed to get one over DFB!! The Echo win!!

    Piers Gallagher: First a punt to the jewels by Penny, and now this!!! For all the damage that DFBs caused, this truly is JUST DESSERTS!!!!!!

    David Weinstock: The experience factor showed tonight, guys. Amid all the chaos at the end, the Echo never forgot that Drew was still the legal man in the contest at that point!!


    The Echo continue to gesticulate and wave goodbye at DFB. Cody Mundz gives Bobby a look, and then both members of DFB start sprinting up the ramp, going after the Echo!!! The Connors hightail it through the curtain, with DFB chasing after them, clearly still looking for a fight!!

    ----

    Kurt Harrington: The following match is a four corners survival number one contender's match for the X-Division Championship!

    "Don't Fear The Reaper" plays the lights go red flashing and Deception appears from rafters and ziplines down to the ring. The camera pans up to the rafters and watches him walk to zipline and come down.

    Kurt Harrington: Introducing first from Parts Unknown and weighing in at one-hundred & eighty-five pounds, DECEPTION!

    "Dark Horse" now hits and a warm reception for James "Eyesnsane" Hughes as he makes his way out looking ready for a fight.

    Kurt Harrington: Next, making his way to the ring from Chicago, IL and weighing in at two-hundred & thirty pounds, he is JAMES "EYESNSANE" HUGHES

    "The Great Chain of Being" hits to a rather negative reception for the newcomer LOCKE as he takes his time on the way to the ring.

    Kurt Harrington: Making his way to the ring from Melbourne, AU and weighing in at two-hundred & ten pounds, LOCKE!

    "Let Me Save You" now plays to another negative reaction for another newcomer that's had success thus far, Travis Morgan, who makes his way to the ring not wasting any time.

    Kurt Harrington: Now making his way to the ring from Seattle, WA and weighing in at two-hundred & fifteen pounds, TRAVIS MORGAN!

    DING! DING! DING!

    Four Corners Match: LOCKE vs Deception vs Travis Morgan vs James Hughes

    It'll be Deception starting off with Hughes and to start off there's a test of strength with Hughes putting his arm out, and Deception acts as if he's going to do this but as he's going for it he nails Hughes with a kick to the midsection followed by straight right hands!

    Piers Gallagher: What's wrong with Eyes? He should have known better than that!

    Langdon Trafford: Eyes is a veteran of the game but there's still got to be some ring rust after his time away

    Deception has Hughes in the corner and still continuing his relentless assault, firing off rights and lefts now to Hughes before the bling tag is made by LOCKE to replace Deception, and Deception looks none too pleased by this but has no choice but to abide by the match rules. LOCKE goes to work on Hughes, but Hughes had enough time to recover while LOCKE was tagging himself in and counters LOCKE and places him in the corner going to town on him with straight kicks to the chest and midsection before dragging LOCKE out from the corner bringing him to the center of the ring, yet LOCKE tries to fend off Hughes with a headbutt that stuns the veteran followed by a rake of the eyes! Hughes temporarily blinded tries to find his vision as LOCKE baits him and Hughes still a bit disoriented falls for it and throws a wild lariat allowing LOCKE to reverse into an armbar!

    Dave Weinstock: LOCKE baiting in Eyes with the Trap Card!

    Piers Gallagher: Come on Eyes, you're better than this!

    Hughes does manage to snag on to the bottom rope in time to break the hold and LOCKE reluctantly breaks it. Hughes uses the rope to help himself back to his feet and it finds his bearings as LOCKE comes in with a kick, but Hughes was ready this time and counters with a dragon screw leg whip taking LOCKE down! LOCKE is back to his however but Hughes is lying in wait behind him and catches him from behind with a cobra clutch suplex! Hughes goes for the pin...
    One...NO!

    Shoulder up by LOCKE and Eyes sends him to the corner with an irish whip and it's there that Travis Morgan wants in the match, and Hughes thinks about it before obliging him and says, "Let's see what you got kid!" Morgan enters the ring and takes LOCKE from the corner and hoists him up on his shoulders before bringing him back down hard with a fireman's carry neckbreaker followed by another pin attempt...but it's broken up by Deception who comes in off a springboard leg drop taking out Morgan as well as himself as rolls back to the outside to recover. LOCKE is able to use this time to recover and brings Morgan up grabbing him by the wrist...CROSS TRIGGER! Morgan is rocked and LOCKE lifts him up for Star Destroyer but Morgan somehow counters it...KISS THE SKY! Morgan hits all of it and drops on top of LOCKE for the pin...BUT IT'S BROKEN UP BY HUGHES WITH A SPLASH OF INSANITY! Hughes may have hurt himself in the process as he clutches his midsection but he staggers to his feet only to be taken down by Deception with a springboard dropkick!

    Langdon Trafford: This match has broken down now!


    Deception back his feet and so is Hughes...DOUBLE CROSS! Hughes is down and Morgan begins to stir but Deception kicks him in the midsection dropping him to his knees...MALICE INTENT! The curb stomp to Morgan! Hughes has recovered though and sneaks up behind Deception...EYE GOT U! THE CROSSFACE CHICKENWING IS APPLIED! DECEPTION DOES MANAGE TO GET TO THE ROPE IN TIME TO BREAK IT THOUGH! All four men lay in the ring sprawled out, but LOCKE is up first. LOCKE grabs Morgan and tosses him outside the ring, the immediately looks to capitalize on Deception, but James Hughes gets up in his face and pops LOCKE with a huge uppercut!! LOCKE reels and tries to rebound off the side ropes, but Eyesnsane sees it coming and smashes LOCKE with a lariat!!! Deception rolls up Hughes from behind!!!!

    One...

    Two........

    Hughes rolls through and grabs onto Deceptions legs, pinning Deception!!!

    One....

    Two.........

    Deception kicks out!!! LOCKE grabs Deception by the head, but Deception whips around and smashes LOCKE with a spinning wheel kick!!!! LOCKE tumbles through the ropes and out of the ring!! Hughes turns Deception around, but Deception catches Hughes with a jumping knee that smacks Hughes in the midsection, crumbling him to his knees!! Deception measures Eyesnsane for Malice Intent!!!!!!

    Langdon Trafford: Deception is on fire!!!! Is London calling for Deception to fulfill his X-Division Destiny??

    Deception suddenly falls down on his face!!! Travis Morgan grabbed Deceptions foot from outside the ring!!!!! Morgan wrenches Deception by the foot and flungs him out of the ring, and Deception lands on the outside mat hard on his chest!! Morgan slides back into the ring and screams something at Deception, but Hughes then jumps up from behind and locks in Eye Got U!!!!!! Hughes drops down and takes Morgan down with him, wrenching with all his might!! Deception tries to slide back into the ring, but its too late as the ref waves the match off, because Travis Morgan has tapped!!!!!!!!!!

    Winner and #1 contender for the X Division Championship: James "Eyesnsane" Hughes
    James Hughes, a little out of breath, has his hand raised in the ring. Outside of the ring, Deception can only stare a hole at the fallen Travis Morgan in the corner, knowing full well who has cost him another shot at the X Divison title.

    Langdon Trafford: A furious, frantic match has ended with James Hughes getting his hand raised here in London!!! Eyensanes championship pedigree shows itself at just the right time in his FWA return, and now he is guaranteed a future shot at our X-Division Champion Tristan James Galloway!!

    Piers Gallagher: Travis Morgan screwed Deception!! Deception had everything under control until Morgans desperation gambit!!

    ------

    As the lights dim in the arena, the crowd turns its attention to the entrance way. That's when the theme music of Zako Wrath begins and the sound causes a mixed reaction from the crowd. Zako comes out with Miss De La Muerta by his side, and the slow walk to the ring takes several minutes to finish.

    Before he and Miss De La Muerta even enter the ring, Hanz Gruber's theme music plays. The crowd cheers as the goatee-sporting German smiles on his way out to the ring. He slowly walks to the ring with the crowd mostly on his side and Zako waiting inside the ring.


    Chain Match (No Disqualification)
    Hanz Gruber vs "The Walking Disaster" Zako Wrath (w/ Miss De La Muerta)


    After the two get their chains wrapped around their wrists, the bell rings and the crowd oozes with excitement and flair. Hanz and Zako circle the middle of the ring a half time around before Hanz lunges toward Zako with the chain. Zako dodges it and swipes down with his chain-wrapped hand like a hammer into the upper spine of Hanz Gruber. Zako lands a second clubbing blow down into the upper back as the crowd groans. Zako then lifts Hanz's head up to face him directly and smashes the chain fist into his nose, busting it open just a minute into the match. Hanz falls to the mat and Zako kneels over him and smashes the wrapped chain across his face, grating it back and forth so the wound gets larger. "The Walking Disaster" grabs Hanz by the back of the head and wraps him into a chest-to-chest hug. Then a belly-to-belly overhead suplex planting Hanz into the mat. Zako kneels over him for a second and hooks the far leg.

    ..............1...................2..Kick out.

    Langdon Trafford: All Zako Wrath early on! The Walking Disaster has proven to be Hanz's worst nightmare!

    Piers Gallagher: Zako just looks like he's more prepared, and he's using the chain to his advantage first.


    Zako rises up and pulls Hanz up by the wrist. He whips him hard into the turnbuckle. But an attempt to follow up doesn't go the way he wants. Hanz lands a hard forearm with the chain as a help across the face. Zako stumbles back and Hanz clotheslines Zako to the canvas before
    stomping into his chest repeatedly. Hanz whips Zako into the ropes and lands a running knee to the chest. Zako again is planted on the canvas and Hanz smashes the chain into the face of his fallen foe, causing him to bust open. Blood is now oozing from both competitors and staining the canvas.

    Langdon Trafford: Eye for an eye. ... In this case, blood for blood!

    Piers Gallagher: Get the laundry room ready. ... We're going to have a ring mat to wash tonight!


    Hanz grabs Zako by the neck and whips him into the ropes a second time. His try for a chain punch misses, and Zako hits a Military Press Drop into the kick to the side of the head. Zako hooks both legs, and the crowd chants along but it's just a two count, a little more than halfway to three.

    Zako continues pressing and grating the chains across Hanz's face until the blood gash gets worse. Zako tries a snap scoop powerslam but Hanz wraps the chain around Zako's neck and tightens. The crowd cheers as Hanz is choking the consciousness out of Zako's body with each passing moment. His face goes pale as the referee begs Hanz to release the hold. Zako falls to his knees as Hanz stays in front of him, holding the chain tight around the neck.

    Piers Gallagher: While Zako used the chain to punch Hanz down, it's Hanz using it as a choking mechanism! And it's working great for him!

    But Miss De La Muerta stops it from going any further with a low blow from behind Hanz. The crowd boos, but nothing can be done in the No-DQ match. Zako rises up and headbutts Hanz down to the ground. Miss De La Muerta shouts orders at Zako, who hits the Wrathplex trio of suplex maneuvers before going for a third pinfall.

    Langdon Trafford: This might be it! Another pinfall! One...



    1....................

    2.....

    ............... Miss De La Muerta's blood-curtling scream can be heard up in the 200 section of the arena. When Hanz kicked out at the last moment, her frustration was obvious.

    Zako, though, keeps on. He quickly pulls Hanz upright and sets up for the "Reaper's Touch" suplex drop. Hanz again fights back by wrapping the chain around Zako's neck. The crowd cheers again, and this time Hanz quickly follows with a knee into the ribs. Zako kneels down and Hanz hits a running bulldog right into the middle of the canvas.

    Langdon Trafford:
    Hanz Gruber is showing signs of life! The crowd is behind him, too!

    Zako lays atop Hanz for the follow-up pinfall try, but the two-count kickout keeps the match going. Hanz rolls off of him in time to see Miss De La Muerta enter the ring, attempting to help her companion. Zako is still face up on the ring canvas and Hanz stops her slap-punch attempt by grabbing her wrist. Hanz backs her into the corner as the crowd cheers for what's about to happen to her. When Hanz is about to strike, Zako comes behind and wraps the chain around HIS neck! The crowd groans as Zako yanks Hanz backwards and pulls him to the ground, Zako with his stomach pressed against Hanz's back and laying between Hanz and the canvas. The life is leaving Hanz's body as his face goes pale. Zako continues choking Hanz out as Miss De La Muerta watches from the corner, smiling and even giving a cackling laugh. Hanz, in desperation mode, suddenly lets go of the chain and puts both of his hands onto the mat and pushes up, using Zakos own momentum against him!!! Zako tumbles backwards and the chain choke is released!!!!

    Hanz gasps for air and has the wherewithall to unwrap the chain from around his own neck, but Zako is right back up. Zako grabs the chain and starts pulling Hanz towards him as if reeling a fish on a line. Zako drags Hanz by his chained arm until Hanz is lying at his feet. He looks at Miss De la Muerta, who gives Zako a signal to finish the execution.... except both are suddenly distracted by Hanz, who is alternating between laughing and gasping, face down on the mat.

    "...dummkopf."

    Hanz suddenly siezes his end of the chain and loops it around Zakos feet!!! Zako tries to step out, but Hanz suddenly lunges and pushes Zako backwards as Zako is on one foot!!! Zako falls down and attempts to roll, but Hanz takes the rest of the chain links, jumps right on top of Zakos exposed back, and hooks the part around Hanz own wrist against Zakos face in a chain-augmented Sie Dumm Fuhrt (Crossface)!!!!!!!! Zako tries to get the chain off of his face, but as the other side of the chain is attached to his wrist, each time he tugs with his arm, he only ends up raking the chain against his own face as Hanz applies all the pressure to Zakos head!!!!

    Dave Weinstock: HANZ BAITED ZAKO!!! SIE DUMM FUHRT, WITH THE CHAIN!!!!

    Piers Gallagher: Zako isn't going to ... he is!!!! HE JUST DID!!!!!!!

    Miss De la Muerta lets out a scream and jumps on the apron to try and interfere, but the ref slides in front of her to prevent her from entering the ring. In any case, the ref has already seen Zakos free hand slowly tapping to Hanz.

    Winner via Submission: Hanz Gruber
    Langdon Trafford: I CANT BELIEVE HANZ GRUBER DID IT!!! HE SUBMITTED THE WALKING DISASTER!! ZAKO WRATH, THE UNSTOPPABLE MONSTER, HAS BEEN TAPPED OUT BY HANZ GRUBER!!!!!!

    Piers Gallagher: That chain was the ultimate equalizer for Hanz!!! And to think we all thought that the chain would factor as an advantage for Zako!!!

    Dave Weinstock: Humans didn't rise to the top of the food chain by having the biggest muscles, guys, they did it by having the craftiest brains!!! Hanz Gruber outsmarted Zako, plain and simple!!! What a win for Hanz!!! What an upset!!!!

    ---

    The theme music for Izzy Van Doren and Starr hits and the crowd comes to its feet with a nice ovation. The mixed-gender tag team makes its way to the ring with a sizable audience in its corner. Izzy Van Doren slides into the ring first, followed by Starr and his underdog personality.

    Langdon Trafford: Despite not winning in their block, I do believe Rockstarrz I&I have a future as a team. They could be the next Tag Team Champions!

    Piers Gallagher: Yeah, if Starr grows 5 inches and 50 pounds. Sure!


    Mad Kingdom's theme music is next, and the mixed-gender team of Penny and "The Wildcard" Jason Randall appears to a mixed reaction, about as 50/50 as it can get. Randall, the former X Champion, looks stoic toward the ring as Penny fixates on Izzy Van Doren.

    They slide in together and Izzy meets Penny with stiff right hands while Starr throws forearms at Randall! The match is on as the Rockstarz I&I members whip the Mad Kingdom duo across the ring, missing with clotheslines but hitting dropkicks on the rebound!

    Langdon Trafford: We're going fast here as Mad Kingdom is down and I&I are in control before the bell has even rung!

    Izzy watches Penny roll out of the ring, and Starr grabs Randall by the neck to make them the two legal competitors.


    Special W3ST Final Match
    Mad Kingdom vs. Rockstarrz I&I


    Starr backs Randall to the ropes with repeated knife-edge chops across the exposed chest. His irish whip to the ropes is met with a forearm from "The Wildcard." Randall whips Starr into the ropes and hits a back body drop before pouncing with stomps into the shoulder and exposed ribs and abdomen.

    Randall tags in Penny, who steps into the ring and slaps Starr across the face with his arms locked behind his back by Randall. Penny then spits in Starr's face and stomps both feet into his right foot. Starr, hopping around, meets a low-angle dropkick from Penny to the knees.

    She re-tags in Randall, who quickly yanks Starr upright and scoop slams him back into the canvas. His pinfall try ... is just a short two count. Randall grabs Starr again around the neck and whips him to the ropes. Starr slides under the ropes, though, and escapes out of the ring. Randall, showing frustration, charges forward but Starr hops up to the apron and lands a swift forearm to Randall. Then he hops to the apron, gets a tag from Izzy, and flies off for a springboard tackle! Izzy comes in and quickly stomps down into the fallen Jason Randall. Starr grabs Randall by the neck and the pair hit a dropkick combo where Starr kneels behind Randall and Penny hits it, flipping Randall back. Penny then bridges Randall's legs for a pin try!

    .................1..................2......Nope!

    Izzy tries to keep Randall grounded with a head lock but his superior male strength overpowers Izzy backward to the corner. Randall then lands a hip toss before tagging in Penny, who hits the ring with repeated forearms flailing about until Izzy falls against the turnbuckle. Penny then presses a boot against Izzy's throat until the referee forces the break.

    Penny hits a front suplex when she moves Izzy to the middle of the ring. She follows with a split-legged moonsault that misses the mark when Izzy rolls away! The crowd waits as both girls make tags to their respective male partners. Randall gets flipped into the turnbuckle by Starr, who hits a corner spear to an upside-down Randall! Starr tags Izzy back in and Starr hits an atomic drop followed by Izzy's axe kick!

    Izzy kneels down and covers Randall!

    ...............1...................2.............Broken up by Penny!

    Starr comes into the ring but hesitates from hitting or causing violence to Penny. The crowd murmurs and Penny kicks Starr right in the groin, barely missing his testicles. Izzy grabs Penny by the hair and has her on a string, about ready to be punished for kicking Starr! Izzy has Penny's hair balled into her hand, but Jason Randall comes behind Izzy and grabs her hair by the handful! Now it's a string of hair-pulling until Starr rises up from getting the kicks to the back on her pin attempt! Starr repays Mad Kingdom in full with a forearm to the upper spine of Randall. Izzy gets away, as does Penny, and Starr lands a knee to the stomach of Randall. But the referee pushes him to the corner, as he does to Penny as well! And it's Izzy Van Doren and Jason Randall together in the ring, with Izzy trying to grab Randall! Izzy kicks Randall in the gut and tries to lock her hands for Sonic Reducer (Cradle Piledriver)!! But Penny jumps back in the ring and grabs Jasons foot, preventing Izzy from lifting!! Izzy drops Randall and her and Penny lock eyes for a moment, both with looks of confusion in the heat of battle. As the ref tries to get Penny back into her corner, Starr flies over the ref and smashes Penny with a flying forearm!!! Penny flies through the ropes and lands ont he floor with a THUD as Starr gestures for Izzy to get back to finishing Randall. Izzy snaps out of it, but as she tries to lift again Randall backdrops her!!! Starr tries to hit out at Randall but the ref is now in Starrs face, insisting that he get back in his corner!! Starr gets back in his corner, but a furious Randall runs in and knocks Starr off the apron onto the floor!!! Randall turns around but Izzy is right there with a chop to the throat!! Randall doubles over and Izzy measures him for an Ax Kick!! Izzy connects and spins to hit Randall with a follow up roaring elbow, but as Izzy spins, Randall no-sells her kick and suddenly jumps up, absolutely SMASHING Izzy square in the face with Killshot (Running Knee)!!! Izzy falls to the mat cold as Randall falls into the cover!!!

    1.............


    2..........

    Starr lunges into the ring!!!!!!

    3.

    Winner: Mad Kingdom
    Starr dispairs in the ring, holding his head in his hands as he sees the lunge is too late. As Starr checks on Izzy, Randall has his hand raised by the ref and uses his free hand to make a gun shape at Starr. Randall screams "BOOM BOOM, BABAY!!!!!!" at Starr before Penny gets back into the ring as well. Randall grabs the ref and yells at him to raise Pennys hand as well, which the ref does. Penny, one hand being raised by Randall and the other by the referee, looks torn between the estacy of victory and concern for the fallen Izzy Van Doren.

    Langdon Trafford: And its Mad Kingdom who will finish WS3T with a victory!!! Jason Randall gains a measure of revenge over Starr, as that vicious Killshot knee strike was enough to put away Izzy Van Doren and consign Rockstarrz I&I to defeat here in London!!

    Piers Gallagher: See???? He didn't need any advice from no cat to get it done!!!!!! All he needed was that killer instinct!!! Penny should take note!!!!

    Dave Weinstock: Penny didn't look happy about it but at the same time, she did what she needed to do, guys. Her intervention saved Randall from a bad spot, and now Mad Kingdom are the victors!!

    Piers Gallagher: And need I remind everyone that it was Izzy who threw the first punch on Penny even before the bell rang??? Penny needs to stop with this sad kitty stuff and learn that you have to be a SHARK to WIN!!!!

    Penny inches towards checking on Izzy, but Randall grabs her and they both leave the ring, with Randall being heard saying "DONT WORRY ABOUT THOSE LOSERS!!!" Izzy finally comes to, and as she sits up she shoots a look towards Mad Kingdom which is so full of hate and venom that Penny sees it and suddenly starts walking up the ramp so quick that now shes the one dragging a confused Jason Randall. In the ring, Izzy shakes her head as Starr helps her up and to the apron.


    -----

    "Black Skinhead" rings out as Ty Johnson makes his way out. Ty Johnson takes a miniute to soak in the cheering London crowd before marching down the ramp with purpose. Behind him, Dave Sullivan, walking gingerly, follows along.

    Langdon Trafford: Its time for Ty Johnson and Tommy Thunder to settle the score, last man standing style!! This feud between the two has boiled over in recent weeks and now, these two are going to go at it until one of them can no longer stand!!!

    Piers Gallagher: Seriously, even in this state, this talentless leech Dave Sullivan is going to drag himself out here?? Does Thug Johnson need a posse everywhere he goes???

    "Start Movin'" plays as Tommy Thunder is out next, and he is roundly booed by the crowd except for isolated cheers from what appears to be a Welsh contingent in the crowd. Thunder makes his way down the ramp with what can only be described as a huge sneer, as if he knows hes already won or something.

    Langdon Trafford: As the unrepentant Thunder makes his way out here now, I have to ask you two: Does Thunder know what he got himself into??

    Piers Gallagher: He got himself a chance to send this ghetto trash back to the dumpster where he belongs!!!

    Dave Weinstock: Thunders done everything in his power over the months to provoke Ty. Win or lose, one of these guys is going to explode, tonight!


    Last Man Standing Match
    Ty Johnson vs Tommy Thunder

    Tommy Thunder and Ty Johnson are in opposite corners. Ty looks down at the corner where his manager Dave would usually stand, but turns his head angrily when he remembers Dave is not there but instead in the hospital after the violent attack from Thunder at the last show. But instead Ty looks around the arena and sees all of the fans, reminding himself that even without Dave he is still not alone.

    The bell rings, and Ty runs full speed at Thunder...but Thunder ends up exiting the ring right from the start. Johnson stops in his tracks, and screams at Thunder to get in the ring and fight. Thunder responds with that same shit eating grin he's given too everyone since his career started. Tommy Thunder goes to the apron, and he pulls out an object...not a foreign object, but a familiar one!

    Out from under the apron Tommy Thunder has pulled out the same metal pipe that he used to beat down Dave Sullivan from the Week 5 show in Atlanta. The pipe is still stained with Sullivan's blood, and dented just a bit at the top. Tommy Thunder's grin grows even larger as Ty Johnson starts to play right into his mind games. Johnson is raging in the ring, screaming at Tommy to get back inside and fight him.

    Johnson runs full speed towards the top rope and acts like he's going to jump off as Thunder prepares his metal pipe, but at the last second Johnson goes low instead! He does a baseball slide underneath the bottom rope and dropkicks Tommy Thunder. The metal pipe flies feet in the other direction, as the fans cheer at the fight finally getting underway. Johnson is raging, finally getting his unsanctioned chance to pound Tommy Thunder in the face. He picks up Tommy, and throws him into the steel ring steps.

    "Count!" yells Ty to the referee, as the ref starts counting away.

    "1"

    "2"

    "3"

    The fans start to cheer, as Ty takes it all in. As Ty is distracted by all the cheers, Thunder makes it up to his feet and spears Ty to the ground. Thunder picks up Ty by the trunks, and throws him back into the ring. Thunder follows right behind him, and starts to take the cover off of the corner turnbuckle. But Johnson is quickly up on his feet, and before Thunder can turn around his head is smashed right into that uncovered steel turnbuckle ring. Johnson goes to smash it again, but Thunder stops him and counters with an elbow to Johnson's face. And then a kick to Johnson's gut.

    Thunder grabs Johnson's arm and takes him to the ground. Right away, Thunder puts him in an Anaconda Vise. They are right in the middle of the ring now, and Johnson has nowhere to go. That Anaconda Vise is locked in tight. Johnson starts tapping away at the ground, but this match is not a submission match and Thunder has no obligation to let up.

    The crowd starts chanting...

    "THUNDER SUCKS!"

    "THUNDER SUCKS!"

    "THUNDER SUCKS"

    Tommy grins, and starts taunting the crowd. But as Thunder continues taunt the crowd, he unwittingly loosens his grip on Johnson. This allows Ty Johnson the perfect moment to slip free from Thunder's deadly hold. Johnson officially escapes the hold, and knocks Thunder down with an elbow to the back of the head. Johnson waits for Thunder to stand up right at the ropes, and sprints at him with a clothesline. However, Thunder ducks at the last second and sends Ty falling down to the floor below.

    Now Thunder has control. He throws Ty into the security barrier, as Ty winces in pain.

    "I am the Division One superstar. You are nothing...you don't deserve to fight me!" yells Thunder. Tommy goes back to the ring apron, and pulls out a steel chair. He waits till Ty gets up to his feet, and then WHACKS Johnson in the head with it. Johnson falls face first right onto the entrance ramp, as Thunder hits Ty again, this time straight on the back.

    Thunder hits him with the chair again, and again, and again. He hits him until the chair is just a bent piece of steel. The ref, who is now outside the ring with Tommy and Ty, begins to count.

    "1"

    "2"

    "3"

    "4"

    Ty begins to stir and try to make it to his feet. He's on his knees, before Ty kicks him down again. The ref begins to restart his count, and Thunder again kicks Johnson. He kicks him again, and again. Thunder once again begins to drag Ty by his trunks. He drags him all the way up the entrance ramp.

    The top of the entrance ramp is highly detailed, with a large titantron at the very top back of the ramp, and large metal structures all around the top of the ramp. Below the titantron is a large piece of black glass that covers the gorilla position of the staging area. Both men are at the top of the ramp now. Tommy picks up Ty, and throws him shoulder first into one of the large metal pole like structures. Johnson screams in pain as Thunder grins.

    Thunder goes to pick Ty up again, but gets hit with an uppercut to the jaw. Thunder stumbles backwards to that back part of the ramp. Johnson gets to his feet, and hits Tommy Thunder with a spear right through the glass below the titantron. Thunder and Johnson both wince in pain as the two race to make it to their feet. Thunder actually gets up first, and tosses Johnson even farther into the backstage area.

    Johnson stumbles all the way into one of the concession stands set up by catering. Ty grabs a steel tray filled with mini corn dogs, and slaps Johnson across the head with it. Johnson falls backwards to the ground. Tommy sees the tray filled with mini sandwiches. He eats one, and then dumps the rest on Ty.

    "You are garbage" yells Thunder, as he starts throwing all sorts of food onto Johnson. As Thunder is about to go for the cheese platter, Johnson takes the same tray that Thunder hit him with, and smacks him across the face with it. Thunder goes straight to the ground, as Johnson hits him a couple more times in the face with his fist. Ty picks Thunder up, and throws him down the hallway.

    The two begin to have a fist fight through the entire FWA backstage area. They reach a set of large double doors that are being guarded by two security personnel. Johnson kicks Thunder in the gut, and throws him at the steel double doors. The doors do not budge...but as Thunder gets up...Johnson hits him with a spear! The two men both go through the large doors and go falling into a completely new area.

    The fans go crazy as Johnson and Thunder are now in the backstage area that is accessible to fans. Ty and Tommy continue to exchange fists as fans take pictures with their cellphones. Ty hits Thunder right in the nose with a large right hook. Thunder is now enraged as his nose begins to bleed. He kicks Johnson in the gut, and throws him into a nearby concession stand. This stand happens to be selling FWA Merchandise. Thunder grabs a ice white "Chris Kennedy t-shirt" and wipes away the blood from his face. He then rolls the shit up, and wraps it around Johnson's neck.

    Thunder continues to choke Johnson with the Kennedy t-shirt, until Johnson elbows him in the face. Thunder gets even more engaged, as he spear tackles Johnson as far as he can take him. The two end up stumbling yards backwards. They reach the entrance of the arena seats, and both go stumbling down the steps and into the lower section of the crowd.

    The crowd is going wild now as Johnson and Thunder are battling right around them.

    Thunder throws a punch and the fans boo loudly.

    Johnson throws a punch and the fans exploud with cheers.

    Thunder throws a punch and the fans again boo loudly.

    Johnson throws a punch, and the fans cheer louder than the have all night.

    It is clear the fans are behind Johnson for this fight, and it's giving Johnson the energy to keep going strong. Johnson throws a punch, and another punch, and another punch. Thunder stumbles backwards down some more steps, with Johnson and the ref following him on foot.

    Tommy uses the security barrier to pull himself up, but right when he does he is hit with a clothesline from Ty Johnson. Both men are now back where they started at ringside. The blood continues to poor from Thunder's nose, as Johnson has clear control of this match. He kicks Thunder, and he kicks him again and again. Ty has been waiting a long time for this moment, for the revenge on Thunder. Thunder attacked his friend, manager, and mentor Dave Sullivan...and now Ty is getting his revenge.

    Johnson looks over, and sees that metal pipe that Thunder tried to use at the start of the match. That same pipe Thunder used on Dave. Johnson gets a shit eating grin on his face, and grabs the pipe. Thunder is trying to make it to his feet, when he looks over and sees Johnson walking towards him with a pipe. For the first time, Thunder's shit eating grin has turned into a face of fear. He starts crawling backwards with his hands up, begging Johnson to reconsider.

    Thunder jumps up to his feet right as Johnson gets there when...

    WHACK. Johnson smacks Thunder right in the kneecap with that metal pipe. Thunder goes back down to the floor in agony holding his knee. When WHACK again goes the pipe, this time across Thunder's orbital bone. Tommy Thunder is now bleeding from much more than his nose, as Johnson continues to beat down Thunder the same way Thunder spinelessly attacked Sullivan.

    He kicks the battered Thunder in the gut one more time, picks him up, and throws him into the ring. Johnson goes to the ring apron one more time, and looks underneath. He spends a good bit of time looking for something, and finally finds what he's looking for. Johnson pulls out the same looking cable that Thunder used on Dave Sullivan last week. Thunder is now so beaten by that metal pipe, that he can no longer defend himself from what Johnson is about to do. He ties Thunder up the same way Thunder tied up Sullivan the week before. Tying him with the cable to the turnbuckle. Johnson then takes the pipe, and continues to swing it at the beaten Thunder. Over and over again in the chest and legs.

    The cables finally come loose, as Thunder falls to the ground. He barely is able to crawl to the middle of the ring. He tries to get up on his hands and knees, when Johnson gives him one more large WHACK to the skull with that infamous metal pipe. Thunder hits the ground like a boxer who just got hit with a KO punch. The building is now so loud that it sounds as if the roof is going to pop off.

    The ref begins to count...

    "1"

    The fans are going wild.

    "2"

    Tommy Thunder is lifeless in the middle of the ring, as the medical staff is already waiting at ringside to attend to him as soon as the match is over.

    "3"

    "4"

    "5"

    "6"

    "7"

    Ty Johnson falls to his knees. He fought a hard fight, and now he's just praying Thunder is officially down for the count.

    "8"

    "9"

    "For you Dave" Johnson mouths, as he knows he has this match in the bag.

    "10"

    The ref signals for the bell to be rung. Ty Johnson has finally done it, he has defeated his rival Tommy Thunder and avenged his mentor Dave Sullivan. Thunder in the meantime is already receiving medical attention from the FWA staff.

    Winner: Ty Johnson
    Langdon Trafford: Ty Johnson has done it!!!!! Thunder fails to answer the 10 count, and here in the O2 Arena Ty Johnson has finally vanquished the demons that Tommy Thunder tried to put onto him!!!!!!

    Dave Weinstock: Whats say you now, Piers?


    Piers Gallagher: SHUT THE HELL UP WEINSTOCK!!!!! That thug had to use a pipe to get the job done!!! Thats not an honorable professional wrestler in there, that is a thug, and Tommy Thunder is a helpless victim!!!!!!!!!

    Dave Weinstock: Damnit, I almost had deplorable bingo won on this sheet here, all I was missing was Piers saying the word 'millenials'. Anyway, Ty Johnson, despite all the haters and the doubters, has won here tonight, and now hopefully he can put Tommy Thunder in the rear view mirror!

    Ty exits the ring where Thunder is still laying, with Sullivan walking up beside him. The ramp camera catches Ty asking "how about that, huh?" to Sullivan, who doesnt answer Ty as they walk for a few moments before just saying a simple "well done, kid" to Ty as they disappear through the curtain.

    -----

    The arena suddenly darkens as a video. set to trippy theme music, plays.

    The video starts as a close up of someone holding a championship belt in a ring. The camera zooms out to reveal that this person is Ryan Hall.

    Then the scene changes to Matt Boudreau standing opposite to a different-looking, more aged Ryan Hall.

    The scene then changes to a young WOLF with Stu St. Clair.

    Then we get several rapid fire shots of a younger Chris Kennedy, Gabrielle, Devin Golden, and Ryan Rondo.

    We see Phillip A. Jackson, and then a looming shot of Cyrus Truth.

    Narrator: "Who will be the next to carve their name in stone..."

    The scene pans to various Back in Business signs in various arenas across the years.

    Narrator: "...ON THE FOUNDATION OF THIS COMPANY??"



    THE FANTASY WRESTLING ALLIANCE PRESENTS:

    THE RACE TO BACK IN BUSINESS BEGINS....

    The video ends as the shot returns to the cheering arena.

    Langdon Trafford: Its official now, guys!!! The first ever FWA WORLD GRAND PRIX will kick off in April!!! 16 of the worlds finest wrestlers!!! Three rounds of action, World Cup style!! Only ONE winner, ONE SHOT, ONE CHANCE, a ONE-WAY TICKET TO THE MAIN EVENT OF BACK IN BUSINESS 13!!!!!

    Piers Gallagher: #WGP1!!! #WGP1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "Let Me Clear My Throat" begins and the crowd inside the London arena rises to their feet. A mostly positive and approving reaction greets Shannon O'Neal, who has a bandage over her nose, which either is/was broken or bruised from the shot to the face she suffered from Bell and the World Championship.

    Piers Gallagher: Shannon got taken out first, before Bell could be taken down, and Shannon looks like a little girl upset that she didn't get her way!

    Langdon Trafford: We don't know Shannon would've attacked Bell. She just raised her hand right before, as a sign of loyalty!

    Shannon looks none too pleased as she walks to the edge of the stage, albeit a bit embarrassed and reclusive with all the attention on her. But halfway down, she stops and turns to face the entrance.

    Langdon Trafford: Tonight is supposed to be Shannon and Bell teaming up against the PAJ Project as the last consolation match of the tag team tournament. I wonder how this'll go!

    Piers Gallagher: Shannon appears to be waiting for Bell!

    About 10 seconds go by, and nothing. Shannon is still standing halfway down the ramp with her eyes focused on the entrance. She's got her hands balled up into tight fists and her elbows barely bent, ready to throw down the moment someone appears. But nothing happens. No music. No nothing. 20 seconds now. The crowd is murmuring and even a few groans. Some light "Shannon! Shannon!" chants crop up, but they die within a few seconds. 30 seconds now. Shannon releases the fists and shouts, "COME ONNNNN!"

    And then ... the video screen goes from pitch black and "off" to a grey color.

    “Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepppppppppppppppppppppppppp”

    Is the soundtrack behind the gray screen on the titantron, that is clearly meant to simulate static which iss clearly a female voice trying to mimic the same effect, before the screen flickers into life
    “Test, Test, is this thing on!” Almost instantly the stadium is awash with venomous boos, and the reason is obvious, there stands proud, the World Heavyweight Champion Bell Connelly, but not as we all know her, Clad in a dark blue coat, a scarf around her neck and her normally long blond hair is pinned down in a neat bun which is hidden under a distinctive hat filled with flowers, in case her attire hasn’t given the game away, the umbrella over her shoulder certainly would give the game away that, she was dressed as Mary Poppins, she leans forward into the camera a frown on her face

    Hello? Hello? Is this thing on? Oh there you are!”

    Bell suddenly exclaims with a fair amount of delight backing off rapidly

    “There she is! Shannon! Hey, Shannon!"


    Bell waves at the camera in a cheery way, her behavior and demeanor more than a little strange, considering what happened at the last Fight night but Bell is acting like nothing whatsoever has changed ,totally ignoring the boos she suddenly grimaces.

    “Oh yikes you don’t look so great huh? Someone got you real good, That looks like it REALLY hurts...like...a LOT…”My Shannon has no nose, how does she smell? Terrible!”

    Bell makes a motion with her hands of doing a “Rim-shot” on a invisible drum set.


    “Ba-dum tis! Wakka Wakka Hey!”


    She pauses momentarily just to see, if Shannon found that amusing in the least. Shrugging a little when it’s clear she isn’t amused in the least.


    “Anyway, I know we have this big tag team match tonight, but ya know...funny thing? I tried to fly down to the area on this umbrella and wouldn’t you know it, a gust of wind blew me all the way over to the other side of the city. Umbrella travel is the woooooorst!”

    Bell groaned as if this was rather annoying to her, but everyone in the arena can tell she’s playing games with Shannon.

    “But you know what? Maybe if we both wish REALLY hard, I’ll just magically turn up on that ramp. Come on. Lets try it!”


    Bell closes her eyes, her brows furrowing in mock concentration, before looking around her surroundings.


    “Nope still here….Guess, you don’t want me there hard enough."


    Shannon grumbles to herself, turns toward the ring in a huff, and then turns back to look up at the screen where Bell is smiling back at her. Shannon shouts back her response without a microphone, but clearly loud enough for most of the fans watching and the TV audio to pick up.


    "Hey Bell ... go **** ya'self, b****-a** coward!"

    Shannon then sticks out her hands with both middle fingers raised and directed up at the screen.

    The crowd pops hardcore for Shannon as on the screen, Bell’s eyes shoot up in alarm clearly taken aback by Shannon’s manner, reeling back like Shannon just slapped her in the face, She frowns at Shannon in the ring, the playful manner that she was cultivating slowly experating.

    Bell groaned as if this was rather annoying to her, but everyone in the arena can tell she’s playing games with Shannon.

    “A coward?”


    Bell blinks in surprise as if she wasn’t totally sure she just heard what Shannon said, but once it appeared to sink in, her eyes began to darken quite noticeably, and they narrowed just a little at Shannon, a shadow coming over her face.


    “So, you want to talk about cowards? Ok. Let’s talk about cowards, Let’s talk about a girl that wanted to be a star, that wanted to be a world champion and wanted to take every shortcut to make that happen. Step on any body. Lie, Cheat, steal, totally fabricated her identity to get sympathy. Let’s talk about someone who faked their accent. Their background. Their parents death and stood in the middle of the ring and relished in telling everyone that believed in her that she was a con artist all along."


    As she talked all the playfulness slowly drained out of her as her tone darkens suddenly, slowly inching her way forward until her entire face covered the screen.


    “I’m a great many things, but after everything you’ve done, don’t you DARE stand there and call me a coward.”

    It was clear that Bell’s darker personally has begun to take hold...but it seems to be more overt than we’ve ever seen in. After a beat, Bell ducked out of frame for a moment and when she comes back up, she has the world title around her shoulder which she taps lightly.

    "Do you see what I got? I want you to look at it Shannon 'cause I really want to know what you see. . Do you see an accessory? Is this a Championship? Because if that's what you think she is to me-- you're dead wrong."

    Bell gently caresses "her" before continuing on.

    "She is more than some medal I wear around my waist or over my shoulder, she is not a necklace or a belt-- she is my love. After the war I went through at Mile High to get her, I went back to my hotel room. There was no alcohol, no pills, no anything. There was only me and her, sittin' in that empty hotel room while I just held her and looked at her. I sat there for maybe a hour or two, just to let it sink in that finally, after everything...Everything I’ve lost… I had her….all the pain was worth it. You used her for a means to an end. I fought for her because I needed her. She makes everything better. She takes the memories away...With her restin' ever so calmly on my shoulder, The voices in my head are finally gone! I can sleep at night!"


    A slightly unhinged tremble of joy enters Bell’s tone at these words, she leans her head up with her eyes closed as if she’s in some kind of demented bliss.


    "
    But I don't..."

    Her eyes snap open.

    "I don't sleep because I know that if I do, she'll be taken from me. Everyone is going to try and steal her-- they want her comfort but they haven’t suffered enough for her. They don't deserve to have her, not after the wars I have fought not just in this business, but my entire LIFE! All of the sacrifices that I made... they all mean something now. She gives them a purpose, she makes it all okay.Everything that I’ve lost, everything I’ve been through now I know why. It was because I was destined to be with her! So you know what? I've got proof that my life weren't a waste of time! And did you really think, I didn’t see what you were doing? All those looks….All that talk about “Co-holding” her I’ve seen Frozen hundreds of times, Shannon. I know a Prince Hans when I see one;. You told the world you would con and backstab anyone to get her, You think I was just going to wait for you to stab me in the back and take her from me?, I'm not gonna let ANYBODY use her! She takes all of my pain and suffering away, she let's me know I’m not insane! You think I'm gonna just let you take her? If you think that I'm not gonna do what I need to do to protect her? You'll die where you stand. I will put you in the same grave that you picked out for me the moment I took her from you at Mile High. I didn’t betray you, I didn’t stab you in the back. All I did what it takes to make sure she feels safe. All I did was out con the Con Artist!"

    Bell snaps her fingers and the screen goes black before Shannon can respond. All that leaves is a furious Shannon O'Neal fuming as she looks up at the blank screen. She turns toward the ring and finishes her march, even more frustrated than before.


    UNIVERSE ON FIRE Hits. Jackson and Garcia walk out from backstage to a good pop. Jackson walks out with a microphone in his hand and he looks at Shannon O’ Neal in the ring. The pair come in their wrestling gear.


    Langdon Trafford: Well this is the pair that Bell and Shannon were supposed to be facing.

    Piers Gallagher: Handicap match!


    The pair don't continue to the ring. The pair stop at the top of the stage at the behest of Jackson. Jackson’s music fades.

    Jackson: Shannon, it would appear you have been left high and dry. Bell has abandoned you. You are alone in the ring and the two of us, we are your scheduled opponents. In most normal circumstances, I would say in the interest of fairness let’s make this a one on one but I have a more pressing issue. It is time to assess the Phillip A. Jackson project. It is time we got going and what better way than to make an assessment about where we are with the project and about what we face in the future.

    Langdon Trafford: Jackson isn’t being sporting here. This isn’t fair.

    Piers Gallagher: Life isn’t fair, Langdon.

    Jackson: This is the chance you have been waiting for. The chance to show what you can be. The chance to impress everyone. Trust me, it will really help you see what I have been talking about for the last few weeks. Nothing can make things clearer than tonight. We have been all talk now it is time for us to show the world the truth.

    Jackson drops the microphone and the pair head down towards the ring in preparation for their match.

    Langdon Trafford: So it is gonna be Phillip A. Jackson and Michael Garcia Vs Shannon O’Neal.



    World’s Strongest Tag Team Tournament Finale Match
    The Phillip A. Jackson Project vs Shannon O’Neal

    Mike looks over at Shannon, holding her right arm back and trying to defend herself from her left side. Big Mike looks over at Phillip, who gestures for Mike to get started. Mike looks back at Shannon with his eyes full of pity as he tries to mouth to Shannon… “You don’t have to do this. You’re in no condition…” but Shannon cuts him off with a hard slap to the face! A fire flares up in the eyes of the Carnegie Carnivore as he snaps his head around and places his massive hand around the throat of the former World Champ! Shannon was taken by surprise as Garcia began to push her back to the far corner of the ring! Garcia raised his hand high in the air for a knife edge chop…but slowly brought it down to his side as he saw the beaten condition Shannon was in. Garcia shook his head no as he walked back to his corner of the ring, where a frustrated PAJ was waiting.

    “This isn’t personal, Mike! It’s a match! She’s your opponent! Now go in there and win!”

    “She’s hurt! She can’t defend herself against us! It ain’t right, man! It ain’t…”

    Garcia didn’t get to finish his sentence as Shannon delivered a running dropkick that sent Mike into Phillip, knocking Phillip off the apron and then rolled Mike up!





    Garcia kicked out at 2 but Shannon quickly rolled to her feet and then delivered a running Shining Wizard to the big man as he tried to get back to his feet! Another pin, another kickout at 2! Garcia got to his knees as PAJ reached in and tagged him on his shoulder.

    Phillip wasted no time, running into the ring and aggressively attacking the right shoulder and lower back of Shannon O”Neal with a series of arm wrenches and then elbows to the lower back of his fallen opponent. Shannon screamed out in agony as Phillip dropped elbow after elbow right into the small of her back. Shannon reached out for the bottom rope to help pull her up but Phillip kicked her arm away, pulled her up by the hair, lowered her shoulder and drove her straight shoulder first between the second and top turnbuckle into the ringpost! Shannon hit hard as Phillip pulled her back, twisted her arm behind her back and delivered a Wristlock Back Suplex! All of Shannon’s weight came forcefully down on her bad arm! Phillip walked back over to his corner, looked his partner in the eye and told him “This is a teaching moment, Mike. Leavce your personal feelings out of the ring!”. PAJ walked back over to Shannon, who exploded out of the corner with a flurry of hard left hands and then a knee to the gut! The crowd popped at the sudden sign of life from the former champion but PAJ quickly cut her off with a hard knee to the gut and a sharp DDT! Phillip covers but Shannon kicks out at 2 to the delight of the crowd!

    Phillip takes advantage of Shannon’s prone condition and locks ina variation of the Crossface, tearing and pulling away at the shoulder and arm of the former World Champion. Shannon is screaming in absolute agony as she claws her way towards the ropes! The crowd begins to chant “LET’S GO SHANNON!” as Shannon begins to fire up and push herself to the bottom rope! PAJ leaves the hold locked in until the referee gets to four! The referee checks on Shannon as Phillip stands back, but he soon shoves the referee aside , grabs Shannon by the hair but Shannon drops him with a hard jawbreaker and then a Spinning Wheel Kick that rocks PAJ! PAJ is stunned as Shannon lifts him up and plants him with a devastating German Suplex! Shannon and Phillip both fall to the mat as the crowd gets on their feet in support of Shannon! The arena is buzzing as both competitors get to their feet, but PAJ falls backwards and tags in Big Mike. Mike’s eyes grow wide as PAJ pulls himself up and yells at Mike to go in there and do his job! Mike turns around to see Shannon charging at him with another dropkick, but he sidesteps this one and Shannon connects with PAJ! Garcia charges towards the corner but Shannon moves out of the way and Mike collides with the turnbuckle face first! Mike is staggered as he stumbles out of the corner and Shannon catches him with a Paradise Kick out of nowhere! The crowd goes wild as Shannon drops down for the cover!





    PHILLIP PULLS SHANNON OUT OF THE RING!

    Phillip tosses Shannon into the steel steps shoulder first before picking her up and then curb stomping her on the Steel Steps! The crowd is absolutely silenced as Shannon is lifeless! Phillip then grabs Shannon by her hair and slides her into the ring before entering himself and dragging Michael’s body on to Shannon as the referee covers for the academic





    3!

    Here are your winners: The Phillip A. Jackson Project!

    Michael Garcia is standing in the ring waiting for Jackson after the match. Garcia and Jackson share a look. Jackson has a microphone in both hands and hands one to Garcia. Jackson nudges Shannon out of the ring with his foot. Jackson struggles to get words out. Jackson looks down at the canvas as Garcia starts to talk.

    Jackson: Well, I don’t know what to say but I guess…it’s assessment time…

    Jackson takes a deep sigh.

    Jackson: So…I’ll just start by talking about my vision for this journey. It was an opportunity to explore who we are. A journey for truth. Not change. Have we found the truth? Or is everything we’ve done been a lie? We have not come up with answers but we have seen the potential of this project. However, you have shown the desire to want to find the truth. You have tried hard and you really won me over early on but I want an honest answer. How would you assess things, Michael?

    Garcia: How would I assess things...Wow, that's a very good question and one that's not very easy to answer . You know, in the past four years I've made my life here in the FWA an open book.Everyone knows about my upbringing with my father and that I was in and out of trouble with the law. Everyone knows that my Mom was too busy working two or three jobs, making sure we were all fed and housed, to make sure we were staying out of trouble. Everyone knows that I've always been a tortured soul that's lacked the moral compass to keep me on the right path in life. Until you...so graciously offered to take me on your journey with you. Phillip, no matter our success in this ring, we've become better people. For the first time in my life, I'm proud of who I am. For the first time in my life, I can hold my head high and say that I am proud to be Michael Armando Garcia! And that, that's all thanks to you, Phillip! You've been like the father I've needed in my life to set everything straight. I see that now. Which is why I'm a little confused about what happened tonight. But hey, tonight...tonight was on me. I should have saved you from yourself like you've done for me so many times before. I'm sorry for failing you, Phillip....but I think our success have been far greater than our failures!

    Jackson looks to the side as Garcia speaks listening to his response.

    Jackson:
    I’ve listened to that. Give me a second to make a decision

    Jackson stands across from Garcia over exaggerating him thinking.

    Jackson:
    I've uhh...made my decision

    Jackson nods and smirks before looking down for just a second before he JABS GARCIA IN THE FACE WITH THE MICROPHONE. Garcia is stunned. Jackson hits a DDT on Garcia and sits on top of his hammering away with short jabs.

    Langdon Trafford:
    Jackson has turned on Michael Garcia!!!

    Piers Gallagher:
    FINALLY! FINALLY!

    Jackson keeps hammering away before smirking. He stands up and rolls up his sleeves. Jackson rolls out of the ring and heads towards the ring crew.

    Langdon Trafford:
    Jackson is coming towards us and he is getting a chair.

    Piers Gallagher:
    PHILLIP! He’s BACK!

    Jackson picks up the chair and slides back into the ring as Garcia starts getting back to his feet. Garcia is bent over and Jackson smashes the chair across Garcia’s back but it makes no difference to Garcia who keeps getting up. Garcia smiles at Jackson, who gulps in fear. Jackson tries to hit Garcia in the face but Garcia catches the chair and uses his height to his advantage.

    Langdon Trafford:
    I think Jackson is about to regret his actions.

    Garcia hits Jackson with a big boot before smashing the chair into his back. Jackson gets hit three times before he tries to escape. Jackson gets grabbed by Garcia who tosses him back to the centre of the ring. Garcia starts to measure Jackson but suddenly the lights are out. It is pitch black in the O2 Arena.

    (THE. PROJECT. IS HERE)

    …Welcome to Day Z3r0…

    Jackson is on the outside with a microphone in hand and the crowd are on their feet as a huge man stands behind Michael Garcia.

    Jackson: You see Michael, The project has always been about the message. The message I just sent you Michael is actually the most important one you will learn. The Project is here. This is Day Zero.

    As Jackson finishes his points to Garcia and he is run over by the man in the ring.

    Langdon Trafford:
    What the hell is this? Who the hell is that? He is HUGE.

    Piers Gallagher: That is a giant, even against Garcia, whoever it is.

    Langdon Trafford: That man is beating the ever loving crap out of Garcia.

    The huge man tosses around Garcia with ease, He throws Garcia to the canvas as Jackson stands at ringside watching the attack.

    Langdon Trafford: Jackson is just watching this. What happened to wanting to be better? I thought he had changed.

    Piers Gallagher: This was about the truth, Langdon and FINALLY Phillip has lifted dead weight off his shoulders.

    The man continues to stomp away at Garcia. Garcia rolls out of the way and knocks the man back with a clothesline to get some room.

    Langdon Trafford:
    Garcia is fighting back.

    Garcia bounces off the ropes and hits a big boot, which makes the man take one step back before regaining his balance. Garcia bounces off the ropes again and hits another big boot but has little effect but the man is stumbling. Garcia goes for the ropes again but is hit in the back by a chair by Jackson. Garcia falls to the canvas. The man lands punch after punch on Garcia before dragging him to his feet and throwing him straight into the ring post. The man pulls him out of the corner and German Suplexes Garcia into the Centre of the ring. The man stands tall and screams as boos reign down. Jackson slides back into the ring with a table. Jackson points up. Jackson set the table up as The man whips Garcia off the ropes and hits a Pop Up Powerbomb through the table. Jackson screams at the man. AGAIN.

    Langdon Trafford:
    DID HE JUST SAY AGAIN?!

    The man picks up Garcia by the throat. Garcia tries to fight back and lands a couple of hits on the man but it is in vain as he retakes control. Jackson has his thumb in the air, directing traffic. Langdon Trafford: Jackson is directing traffic here.

    Piers Gallagher:
    I have never seen The Large Canine Michael Garcia be physically dominated like this.

    Jackson jumps on top of Garcia and starts hammering away at Garcia who is helpless.

    Langdon Trafford:
    Here comes security to put an end to this.

    FWA security charge out en mass from the back down the ramp towards the ring and the man that attacked Garcia is standing in the ring waiting for them as Jackson continues to hammer blow after blow to Garcia. The man jumps out of the ring and takes out 4 members of security with one clothesline and backs the rest up the ramp.

    Piers Gallagher:
    He just eliminated FWA security like nothing.


    The man climbs back into the ring as boos reign down. Jackson brushes his boot across the face of Garcia and signals to the man hold Garcia. Jackson climbs out of the ring and grabs a microphone. Jackson doesn’t put it to his mouth but thrusts it into Garcia’s face. The man tosses Garcia to the canvas as Jackson climbs up to the top rope and hits the Amazing Splash and Jackson tells the man to throw Garcia out the ring. The man picks up Garcia puts him up above his head and throws him to the floor as Jackson celebrates. Jackson looks out into the crowd and grabs the microphone with a huge smirk on his face. Testing the microphone works and begins talking as the boos reign down.

    Jackson: This is the truth Michael. This is what I have been searching for. I have been talking about finding out who I am and I learned that this is who I am. I knew about three months ago. It was an epiphany that I had. It was a moment of weakness. A moment where I thought I was the problem, when I was never the problem but I carried on knowing that I would be able to attract some poor, helpless soul who wanted to change. I wanted to teach them the reality of the FWA and this is the new reality. You forgot the most well known rule in this business. Never trust Phillip A. Jackson. I look out of me and me first. You want to change? Good for you. I am not the man for that. I am the man who strung you along with a false promise and an idea that you could be better. You were a puppet in a bigger game. It was what you didn’t see or didn't hear that give it all away. You think I didn’t see you when I was talking backstage? You didn’t think that the moment you left I told them the truth? I have kept up this charade for a tournament I knew I wasn’t going to win but none of you can fathom how good this feels. It is an amazing feeling. I have a weight off my shoulders.

    Jackson leans over Garcia who hasn't moved since he was overwhelmed. The fans take the pause to boo.


    Jackson: This the disciple of the Phillip A. Jackson Project. This is what my chosen champion looks like. This man is worthy. Did you really think YOU were worthy? That I, the great Phillip A. Jackson, would choose someone like you? A total failure? A guy who lets everyone down? A guy who cannot and will not ever succeed. The truth is Michael. I am a winner. You are a loser. Winners do not associate with losers. That is why I never once called you a part of the project. I never once called you my disciple. You were NOTHING to me and like a bug I chose to squash you. The TRUTH is Michael. I have known from the very start that you were not good enough. You were a weight that would sink every ship. You had no use to me. For the last few months we have been together, I have waited for this day. I have been telling you it is coming. I will say though, you made this really hard for me. You did. This isn't some lesson you can take away from this. It's just... it is really damn hard to plan to fail. I knew this wouldn’t succeed. I had to plan this to look like we were failures but I couldn’t just throw away matches. I had to try and fall short. I did think about trying to win this thing and then turn on you but you were not worthy to go down in history with my name next to yours. You don't deserve that honour. YOU DESERVE NOTHING! You really think a guy like YOU would be my project. A guy who has never had any connection to me. This man right here was the very first graduate of my Wrestling Academy. He understands the struggle. He understands the path. He has been taught to a high level. He is the destruction and the project and I told you that the Project was bigger than you and I meant that literally because this man stand here with me is the stand out from the Phillip A. Jackson Wrestling Academy. THE DESTRUCTION. THE PROJECT. LADIES AND GENTLEMAN.

    ...VIKTOR MAXIMUS!


    Jackson with great glee stands and presents Viktor with his arms out to the side. Viktor raises his arms as boos reign down from the O2 Arena. Jackson is mesmerised by the beast he has unleashed on FWA as we fade.


    ------


    “Giving in” by Adema played over the speakers as “The Prodigy” Mike Parr made his way down to the ring.

    Trafford: Well,fellas,I for one cannot wait for this match. Two of the premiere stars in the FWA are about to go to war with one goal and only one goal in mind, proving who is the better man.

    Weinstock: I have to say, though, I feel like that for Mike Parr, this match is about more than just Cyrus Truth. This match is about taking that next step that so many former champions have failed to take. Guys like Cryos, Mac Michaud, Clay Reitmeier…To Mike Parr, this match could be against any of the FWA top stars and the goal remains the same. To show that he’s ready for the big time!

    Piers: How much more does he need to show? One of, if not the most impressive FWA North American Championship reigns in history, turning away guys like James Hughes, Mike Garcia, Tristan Galloway, James Sync, Mac Michaud, and even claiming a victory over his opponent tonight, in that span.

    Weinstock: And it’s incredible…it just goes toshow the level ofcompetition in the FWA that a man can do all that and still feel the need to prove himself in this match tonight!

    “Subconscious Entry Version” cuts off Parr’s preparation in the ring as Cyrus Truth enters the arena to a huge pop from the crowd!

    Piers: Weinstock, are you kidding me? Parr’s alredy beaten this man! He has nothing to prove! Cyrus is the one with something to prove!

    Trafford: Well,there may be something to be said for that! Cyrus Truth wants to prove to the world that his time at the top of the mountain is NOT over and that a guy like Mike Parr just can’t rise up and knock him off.

    Piers: Well, he’s gonna have to go through hell tonight to prove that!


    “The Exile” Cyrus Truth vs “The Prodigy” Mike Parr

    The referee calls for the bell and both men begin to circle the ring. Truth makes the first move, attempting a side kick which Parr dodges as they continue to circle. Both men tie up in the center of the ring with a collar and elbow before Truth transitions to a rear waist lock. Prodigy counters by transitioning into one of his own. Truth manages to counter the hold into a side headlock, taking Parr down to the mat and applying as much pressure as he can before Parr uses his legs to give himself enough momentum to fight to his feet. Truth keeps the hold locked in as Parr tries to get separation but Truth takes him back down to the mat, applying morepressure to the head and neck of the Prodigy. After a short few seconds, Prodigy manages to wrestle his way out of the hold. Truth goes back on the attack with another side headlock but Parr pushes Truth to the ropes, forcing a break.

    -----


    Cameras cut to the parking garage as a white limo slowly pulls in.


    Langdon Trafford:
    And it appears we have some visitors arriving to the arena.

    Piers Gallagher: Well this is exciting. Any word on who we were expecting tonight?

    Langdon Trafford:
    Oh God, I hope it is not him in the end.

    As the car comes to a stop, a tall and well-kept limo driver makes an exit from the driver’s side and rounds the car. Upon reaching the far back door, he opens it up and steps to the side to allow what can only be his employer to make an exit. It's then that the current North American Champion, Wolf, steps out from the limo that draws tremendous amounts of jeers from the crowd. But there is one more person stepping out of the limo… Donald Trump. Trump straightens his back to a large amount of boos. Wolf then reaches back into the limo and pulls out his title.

    Donald Trump: Keep here until further word.

    He says with a firm nod. The driver tips his hat as he responds in a professional manner.

    Driver: Absolutely, sir. I will be ready whenever you are.

    Trump and Wolf ignore his response with walking away right as he spoke, making their way through the garage and into the backstage area. The cameras do not follow but instead cut back to ringside.

    Donald Trump: I’m thinking about uninstalling FiREFOX... and getting Google Chrome.

    Wolf: WHAT!?

    Donald Trump: Just kidding, Wolf. I would never lower myself to those standards. That’s British quality. I was just keeping you on your toes; keeping you mentally sharp and prepared.

    Wolf: What about Internet eXplorer though?

    Donald Trump: Does that still exist?

    Wolf: Somehow, yes.

    Donald Trump: Well, that’s Polynesian standard. It’s shithole standard. That’s Galloway standard.

    Wolf: Gross.

    The cameras do not follow but instead cut back to ringside.

    David Weinstock: By the sound of it, I'm not sure they plan on staying long tonight?

    Piers Gallagher: They want to get back to US as soon as possible and I do not blame them.


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

    Video is running between matches showing a compilation of bad bumps being taken by FWA talent, grimaces on their faces in the aftermath and a clutched limb here or a stretcher shot there. A voiceover explains...

    "Wrestling is a lot of fun...injuries aren't! FWA performers are highly trained athletes and even they still get hurt. Please...don't try this at home!"

    The clip ends and there's a pause before the lights come back up. That pause is broken up by the Number of the Beast. As is usually the case, the crowd seems split on whether to boo Wolf more despicable aspects or cheer for him out of respect. Before very long, his entrance music cuts out and he raises the microphone to his lips.

    Wolf: GOOOOOOD SAAAAAAVE...

    Well, he's a far better wrestler than singer, that's for sure. The National Anthem is probably a hair above his talent level.

    Wolf: MEEEE FROM STUPID LAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNND!

    Wolf raises his title emphatically as a chorus of boos rise up.

    Wolf: I don't f*cking care if you buy my T-shirts, if you're not part of the solution? You're part of the f*cking problem. The USA needs to see a representative from our country that's forward thinking. A man who doesn't cling to the traditions of the past like some intolerant bible-banging mouth breather who couldn't tell a wristlock from a wristwatch. SPEAKING of Trsitan James Galloway. You know for all your hemming and hawing and bluster, you really have become a pathetic, sad man just like my beloved America. Weak and helpless. But America will be made great again. I will build a wall around the North American Division and throw all the weaklings like you over the wall. The symbol of our great country needs to be kept safe from being dragged half across the world to place governed by weak old lady. The strong will take place on the top of the foodchain again.

    Wolf lowers the microphone. The arena fades to crimson and “Here comes the Money” begins to play it ends it's intro and there is an explosion on the stage. It is starting to rain dollar bills with Trump’s face on them. Donald Trump steps out to scan the crowd. The boos are beginning to take over the crowd.

    Donald Trump: Like the old saying goes...respect isn't given, it's earned. But on occasion, respect must sometimes be TAKEN. And when it is, rest assured that my man, Wolf, will make it as painful and torturous as humanly possible. Wolf is an animal defending our territory. He's protecting what's his and he's going to protect it to the very end. The Polynesian Powerhouse will fight versus a REAL AMERICAN hero. No, not G.I. Joe, not Hulk Hogan. It’s yours savior of the North American Division. I'm super chill and relaxed all the time knowing this man represents me as champion. I twerked the other night. Like with my butt and everything. I've got American neon running through my veins and I've got all the directions needed in order to pull a clean win out of nothing. You'll want to have the best showing you possibly can before Wolf puts you down where you belong...firmly underneath his boot, he's going to take that "Powerhouse" name and scatter it to the wind! THAT'S what Wolf does! And as always, have a nice day.

    They make their way to the ring. Wolf hands the North American Championship to Donald Trump as he waits his opponent.

    "Turn The Page" plays as Tristan James Galloway comes out, looking none too impressed by all the antics of WOLF and Trump. The crowd cheers for Galloway as he immediately enters the ring and tries to get in WOLFs face.


    Champion vs. Champion
    “The Last Legend“ Wolf vs. “Polynesian Powerhouse“ Tristan James Galloway


    They come together like two big bulls locking horns, each man looking to display his strength and dominance early on. They struggle for the upper hand but it's Tristan who starts to overpower Wolf and slowly force him back into the ropes, where Wolf yells for the referee to call for the break. Tristan reluctantly breaks as Wolf moves away from the ropes, clearly not used to being on equal footing in the strength department. They circle around again and tieup once more, this time with Wolf quickly going into the side headlock and he brings Tristan down to one knee immediately. Tristan fights back to his feet again and forces Wolf back into the turnbuckle, where just like before, Wolf yells for the referee to get Tristan to back off. Tristan quickly shuffles back, glaring at Wolf as he starts out of the corner and Tristan slaps him right across the face!

    Langdon Trafford: There's a taste of his own medicine, a total lack of respect from Tristan as he just slapped the Beast right across the chops! And look at Wolf, he is absolutely irate at what just happened!

    Piers Gallagher:
    I think that was a big mistake by Tristan, you don't wanna get a guy like this mad at you.

    David Weinstock:
    TJG is certainly no pushover but right now, they look like they're exchanging a few heated words and I'm willing to say that when it comes to trash talk, few are more equipped than Wolf...


    Wolf runs his mouth steady but Tristan just hauls off and spits right in his face instead! Wolf's eyes go wide with rage and he rushes forward, tackling TJG down to the mat and the brawl is on! Tristan and Wolf throw punches back and forth as they roll around on the mat in something resembling more of a bar fight than an actual wrestling match. They get back to their feet and Tristan scores with two hard right hands before Wolf gets under him and drives Tristan back into the turnbuckle with authority! Wolf drives his shoulder into TJGs gut repeatedly, then goes to work with some overhand rights to the face! Tristan able to block and counter with another shot of his own that knocks Wolf back, and Tristan comes out of the corner with a clothesline knockdown! TJG hits another big clothesline that floors Wolf and as he scrambles back to his feet again, Tristan connects with a big boot that sends Wolf stumbling through the ropes and crashing to the outside! Tristan doesn't waste any time dropping down and rolling to the outside right after him...

    David Weinstock: The action just spilled onto the outside and remember, this is not a no holds barred matchup. The referee's 10-count is in effect but I highly doubt that they really give a damn

    Tristan follows Wolf around ringside, hammering on his with solid shots across the back. A HUGE kneelift drops Wolf down to one knee and Tristan follows it up with another boot right to the face! Tristan rolls into the ring to break the 10-count, then rolls right back out to continue the fight. He stomps Wolf a few times then picks him up and slams his face into the commentator's table, sending Wolf stumbling backwards to the floor. Tristan starts ripping at the table, clearing it off and getting it ready for whatever he's got in mind but Wolf takes the opportunity to roll back into the ring. Tristan grabs Wolf by the leg and he drags him back out of the ring, delivering some heavy knees to the gut before he slams Wolf's face into the ring apron! Tristan hits some big right hands then goes for an irish whip, sending Wolf slamming into the steel ringsteps with a monstrous [CRASH]! Wolf grabs his shoulder and quickly rolls away...

    Langdon Trafford: And Tristan is completely owning Wolf right now! Complete domination thus far!

    Tristan stomps Wolf a few times then picks him up and drags him towards the commentator's table again. Piers is the first to react with-

    Piers Gallagher:
    I'm getting the heck outta here!

    David Weinstock:
    You wha?
    Piers didn't waste any time getting out of the way as Tristan pummeled Wolf with a few more shots across the commentator's table! Weinstock and Langdon quickly followed suit and backed off as the fight got more and more vicious between the two behemoths. Tristan beat Wolf down to one knee with several clubbing blows across the back then a solid knee to the face that put Wolf down once again! TJG quickly rolled in-and-out to break the count once again before going right after Wolf but the breather was all Wolf needed to catch Tristan coming in with a big right hand to the gut! Tristan doubled over and Wolf capitalized with a spinebuster, sending Tristan crashing through the commentator's table!

    The commentator's go static and there's debris everywhere as Wolf slumps down to one knee, glaring at TJG who's still half-buried underneath the announcer's desk! The referee jumps outside and hurries over to check on TJGs condition but Wolf pushes him out of the way and presses his attack, stomping Tristan several times. Wolf gets up a head of steam and nails TJG with a stiff kick to the ribs, sending him rolling along the floor towards the barricade. The referee gets in Wolf's face trying to slow things down a bit but Wolf only has eyes for TJG. Tristan slowly pulls himself back to his feet and Wolf takes off running and he delivers a devastating SPEAR that drives them both right through the barricade on the outside!

    The commentators struggle to get their headsets working again, fading in and out mid-sentence as the referee heads to the outside to check on both men. He quickly backs off however, seeing Wolf slowly pushing himself back up again. TJG is still down on all fours and Wolf grabs him by the hair and pulls him to his feet, dragging him back to ringside and slinging him into the ring again! Wolf slides in after him and quickly goes for the cover, getting only a 2-count before TJG gets the shoulder up! Wolf gets up to one knee and grabs Tristan by the hair, firing off punch after punch into the TJG's face! The commentators seem to get everything straightened out again and get back into the match as Wolf whips Tristan into the ropes then catches him coming back in with a HUGE powerslam! Wolf hooks the leg this time but Tristan still kicks out at 2!

    Langdon Trafford: This has been an extremely physical match between two extremely physical men on a night where the line has been drawn right in the sand. And before it's finished, only one of these two will be left standing!

    David Weinstock:
    And from the look of things, that man will be Wolf! He's completely dominated Tristan James Galloway for the last few minutes and I think he's proven himself to be even stronger than the Polynesian Powerhouse!

    Piers Gallagher:
    Tristan is certainly in a precarious spot right now but he's still in this match. And he's got one hell of an uphill climb ahead of him...


    Wolf stomps Tristan a few times then whips him into the turnbuckle and runs in after him with a thunderous clothesline! TJG stumbles forward out of the corner and Wolf follows it up with a running clothesline to the back of the head that puts him back down again! Wolf stalking him for a moment then he drops down and goes right for the arm, trying to apply the Komura but TJG fights him! Wolf can't get the hold cinched in as TJG struggles on the mat but Wolf changes it up and he twists around into a cross armbreaker, cranking back on the hold and getting a roar of pain from TJG!

    Piers Gallagher: He changed it up on him!

    David Weinstock:
    Submission time!

    The referee asks if Tristan wants to quit but he gets a great big "HELL NO" Tristan tries to fight his way through the pain as Wolf's body torques on the arm, trying to force the submission through sheer will. TJG tries to battle out of the pain, looking to slowly roll into the pressure. Wolf tries to keep him grounded but Tristan gets to his feet and he stacks Wolf up on his shoulders for a CLOSE 2-count before Wolf releases the hold! Wolf quickly gets to his feet and TJG lays him out with a vicious clothesline but Tristan grabs his arm immediately, slumping across the ropes in pain!

    Langdon Trafford: Tristan with that hard knockdown but he's unable to capitalize on it. He's holding that arm and I think that submission hold might have done exactly what it was intended to do...

    Piers Gallagher:
    Wolf wanted to hurt him and he's done just that. Now he's gotta capitalize while Tristan is hurt! Get in there and finish it before he's got a chance to get his second win and start tearing into him again!

    Wolf pushes himself back up and Tristan goes on the attack, hitting some clubbing blows with his good arm. TJG backs him into the corner and whips Wolf into the opposite turnbuckle, then runs in after him with a big splash! Wolf's knees start to buckle and TJG quickly capitalizes with a DDT that brings Wolf down right on his head! Wolf rolls over and makes the cover, getting a 2-count! TJG is still shaking his arm out as he gets to his feet again and he picks Wolf up, setting him up for Carcinogen Crush but Wolf counters with a quick headbutt! He breaks TJG's grip and Wolf quickly hits an overhead belly-to-belly suplex, tossing TJG across the ring! Wolf's up and he moves into the corner, taking aim as he watches TJG struggle back to his feet again. Wolf sprints across the ring and goes for the Spear but Tristan moves out with Spear of his own and he takes down Wolf but Wolf kicks out at 2! Tristan beats Wolf to the punch and kicks him in the gut. Tristan lifts him up for THE SHATTERED SYMPHONY but Wolf counters and shoves Tristan away! Wolf goes for a big clothesline but Tristan ducks and he nails Mason with a boot to the face!

    Langdon Trafford:
    And the Tristan James Galloway scores another knockdown, but can he make it lead into a cover???

    TJG presses the attack and grabs Wolf by the throat, looking for a chokeslam but Wolf hits him with a couple elbows to the side of the head! TJG maintains his grip but Wolf takes him down to the mat with the WRATH OF THE BEAST! Tristan roars in agony as Wolf cranks back on the hold, punishing TJG as wave after wave of pain surges through his body! The referee asks him but TJG refuses, thrashing around on the mat as he fights to free himself! Wolf holds on with everything he's got, torturing Tristan for what seems like an eternity. TJG reaches out with his arm and tries to claw his way across the mat, dragging Wolf's weight along with him! Wolf cranks on the leg repeatedly, desperately trying to force Tristan to tap out but TJG reaches for the ropes...he reaches...and he's got it!

    David Weinstock: He got the ropes!

    Langdon Trafford:
    Tristan got into the ropes and Wolf has to break the hold! Wolf's still got it locked on and come on ref, get him off the man! Get him to break the hold already!

    The referee interjects himself physically, managing to pull Wolf's hands free as the Wolf shoves Tristan away! Wolf quickly gets to his feet and glares down at the referee, leveling some vicious threats as he backs the smaller man into the corner. The referee motions to his striped shirt but Wolf grabs him by the collar and hoists him off his feet, threatening him outright this time!

    Langdon Trafford: What in the-

    David Weinstock:
    That ought to be a disqualification right there! You don't put your hands on an official like that! He ought to disqualify him right on the spot!

    Piers Gallagher:
    The title would not change hands on DQ!
    The referee shakes his head and does some fast talking but Wolf just drops him back to his feet and turns back towards TJG! The referee looks a bit shaken but seems to be giving these two tremendous leeway as Wolf goes back on the attack, stomping Tristan repeatedly in the corner. Wolf targets the injured arm and shoulder, holding the top rope with both hands while he puts the boots to him! Wolf drags TJG back to his feet and delivers another overhead belly-to-belly suplex, sending Tristan crashing down onto the canvas again! Wolf makes the cover but only gets a 2-count! Wolf picks him up and goes for a uranage slam but TJG hits him with an elbow to the side of the head, sending him staggering back into the ropes. Wolf takes a wild swing but Tristan ducks and goes to the body with a hard right hand, then he hoists Wolf up and delivers a crushing CARCINOGEN CRUSH!

    Langdon Trafford:
    He did it! He got him! He hit the Carcinogen Crush and it's all but academic! Is FWA going to have a DOUBLE CHAMPION???

    The fans cheer as Tristan clutches his injured arm to his chest and crawls over to make the cover but Wolf gets the shoulder up just BARELY before the 3-count!

    Piers Gallagher: He kicked out!

    David Weinstock:
    I don't believe it!

    Langdon Trafford:
    This guy's inhuman! Nobody kicks out of the Carcinogen Crush like that!

    Piers Gallagher:
    Wolf just did. And right now, Tristan James Galloway has to be asking himself "What have I got to do to put this guy away?"


    Tristan clutches his arm against his chest, still suffering a hell of a lot of pain as he pushes himself back on his feet again. Wolf rolls over onto his stomach but Tristan isn't waiting and he reaches down, slowly pulling Wolf up off the mat and shoving him back into the corner. Tristan comes in with a hard back elbow that rocks Wolf, then goes downstairs with some stomps to the abdomen and he beats Wolf down in the corner. Tristan puts his foot down across his throat and choke the life out of him for a few moments, using every bit of the referee's 4-count as he possibly can. Tristan picks him up out of the corner and connects with another hard shot, knocking Wolf down to one knee. Wolf tries to fire off a shot but Tristan catches his fist and he jerks Wolf onto his feet and delivers a monstrous chokeslam!

    Langdon Trafford:
    Chokeslam! Tristan delivers the chokeslam and that will be it!

    Tristan backs to the corner waiting for Wolf. He charges Wolf with a spear and follows it up with jackhammer! THE SHATTERED SYMPHONY! WOLF IS OUT! Tristan covers 1… 2….3! NO! Trump interrupts the ref before he can make the three count! Tristan is bewildered! He looks at Trump with eyes filled with rage! Trump puts his hands in the air and starts running with Tristan pursuing him! It does not take Tristan long time to catch up to him. Tristan grabs Trump by the hair and the crowd goes crazy!

    Langdon Trafford: DO IT! DO IT! HIT HIM! HIT HIM HARD! HE DESERVES IT!

    Piers Gallagher:
    He can’t do this!

    David Weinstock:
    THE REAL STORY HERE IS THE HAIR! IT IS REAL! THAT THING ON HIS HEAD IS REAL!


    Trump is pleading for his life and Tristan does not give a damn. He is going to give the man what he deserves! Wolf attacks Tristan from behind and he releases Trump. Wolf hoists Tristan up for THE FINAL HOWL and he delivers it on ring apron! Tristan is holding his back and Wolf rolls back to the ring. The ref starts the count.

    1..

    2..

    3..

    4..

    Langdon Trafford:
    COME ON TRISTAN!


    The crowd is cheering for Tristan to get back to the ring and he tries to muster the strength needed.

    6..

    7..

    8..

    Tristan is getting back up and Wolf is mortified. He knows that he cannot beat Tristan on this night.

    9..

    Tristan tries to pull himself to the ring only for his injured arm to give up on him.

    10..

    Piers Gallagher: HE DID IT!

    Winner: Wolf


    Langdon Trafford:
    No! Not like this!

    Piers Gallagher:
    The President of the North American Division is still in the office! Clean win just like promised!

    David Weinstock:
    There was nothing clean about this.


    The crowd turns hostile instantly as Wolf having stolen the victory at the last moment tahnks to interference of Donald Trump! Trump comes to the ring kneeling next to Wolf, raising his arm into the air! He hands him the North American Championship and the microphone.

    Wolf: I hope you enjoyed this match London, because this is the last time you have seen this championship. I will never ever defend the North American Championship outside of United States of America!

    Langdon Trafford: Ladies and gentleman.... Tristan James Galloway came within a hair of becoming a double champion, he might well be if not for some distractions by a certain VIP guest at ringside, but in the end WOLFs reign of making the North American Championship great again continues!! Is he really refusing to defend outside the US?? Can he do this?

    Piers Gallagher:
    He is the President of North American Division. His word is the law!

    ---

    "Bitter Sweet Symphony" begins and the crowd roars in approval. The always-popular entrance of "The Astonishing" Chris Kennedy begins, and the crowd's pop resurfaces when he appears on the stage. The long dirty blonde hair is a trademark of his appearance, but Kennedy's peak figure has never looked better. He slowly makes his way down to the ring for another of his countless PPV main events from the past six-plus years.

    Langdon Trafford: Here we go! The .. conclusion ... of the World's Strongest Tag Team tournament! And a chance ... for Chris Kennedy and Ryan Rondo, together, to return to the championship scene, bring gold back to their waists.

    After reaching the ring, his music cuts and the theme for Ryan Rondo hits. The crowd's tune changes to a more mixed response. Rondo, the former multi-time World Champion, comes out to the entrance without a moment to acknowledge the fans. He walks briskly to the ring and quickly engages Kennedy, who nods his head and mouths some words back before turning his back on Rondo's usual entrance tradition of stepping up to the middle turnbuckle.

    Langdon Trafford: One has to wonder ... how a pair of alphas like Rondo and Kennedy will do, versus a well-oiled machine like the reigning FWA Tag Team Champions, the Sin City Vultures!

    Piers Gallagher: These two are Hall of Famers. They'll make it work. They have all this time. They annihilated Block B of the tournament!

    This is followed by the Sin City Vultures' theme music, and the crowd cheers loudly for Christopher Manson and BUCK's appearance. The dark scenery and low lighting compliment the moody tune, and the Vultures come out together as Kennedy and Rondo stand side by side in the ring. Manson and BUCK slowly make their way around the ring before the lights return to full blast and Manson hops up to the apron.

    Langdon Trafford: This one is for EVERYTHING. Double or nothing, folks. The World's Strongest Tag Team tournament championship. AND the FWA Tag Team ... CHAMPIONSHIPS!

    Piers Gallagher: Kennedy and Rondo went undefeated ... four-and-zero ... in the block stage. The Vultures lost to the Dirty F'n Bastards but somehow beat Bullets N' Bubblegum to steal Block A. I almost feel ... not even almost, I DO feel ... like the Vultures are the underdogs in this one!

    Manson enters first, and Rondo takes the lead for the challenging team. The bell rings after the ref holds up the championship belts, and we're off.

    Main Event
    "Double or Nothing"
    World's Strongest Tag Team Championship
    FWA Tag Team Championships
    Sin City Vultures (c) vs. Ryan Rondo & "The Astonishing" Chris Kennedy


    Rondo and Manson circle the ring once before coming together in a strong grapple. Rondo locks in a side head lock to start, but Manson counters with an arm twist behind Rondo's back. Rondo re-applies the side head lock but Manson continues the chain wrestling beginning with a rear waist lock after slipping his head out from Rondo's arm clench. Rondo circles around for his own rear waist lock but Manson quickly pries the hands apart and turns to apply an arm twist at the wrist. Rondo rolls with an arm drag and applies his own arm twist, but Manson counters with a wrist lock. Rondo again hits an arm drag but Manson pops up with the wrist lock still applied, and Rondo reaches for and grabs the top rope, forcing the ref to call out until Manson releases the hold.

    The crowd cheers lightly as the two again circle the ring. Rondo applies a head lock and Manson counters with a double leg takedown quickly after slipping away from the lock. Manson positions for a front head lock but Rondo grabs both legs for a front takedown and sunset flip bridging pin!

    .................1...................2..Kick out

    Manson flips over on the kick out and lays atop Rondo with both legs pulled back for a pin.

    ................1....................2.....

    Rondo kicks out hard and rolls backwards, on top of Manson for his own legs-pulled-back pin with him nearly sitting on Manson's chest.

    ................1...................2......

    Manson kicks out, quickly positions himself behind Rondo, and does a back roll into a pin!

    ................1...................2.......kick out!

    Manson is sent off Rondo, and BUCK slaps a tag on the chest. When Rondo rises, Manson misses a swift kick to the head and gets a back elbow to the jaw. But Manson quickly pummels Rondo to the canvas with a forearm to the upper spine. BUCK grabs Rondo and hits a military press slam, then covers, but Kennedy steps through the ropes and BUCK quickly rises off Rondo to engage Kennedy.

    "The Astonishing" one stops in his tracks, catching BUCK's eye and thinking twice. The distraction allows Rondo to land a spinning wheel kick when BUCK turns. Rondo then runs off the ropes and lands a spinning neckbreaker to BUCK. Tag made to Kennedy, who comes in with repeated elbow drops and stomps to the much larger opponent. Kennedy grabs BUCK by the neck and tries a whip to the ropes. BUCK counters it and doesn't flinch after Kennedy lands a running forearm. Kennedy then runs off the ropes and tries his "Bitter Sweet Chin Symphony" superkick but BUCK explodes at him with a chest bump that sends Kennedy out of the ring.

    BUCK runs off the opposite end of the ropes and with Kennedy down, is about to leap over for an unexpected suicide dive. Kennedy slides in before and BUCK stops his momentum by running into the ropes. Then he lands another chest bump and tags in Manson. The Vultures hit a double team powerbomb-neckbreaker combo and Manson covers Kennedy, but it's a two count. Manson's whip to the turnbuckle backfires when Kennedy hits a boot to the face. Then it's a running knee out of the corner and a belly-to-back suplex. Kennedy tags in Rondo, who lands a quick knee drop and covers.

    ......................1.......................2...............BUCK breaks it up

    Rondo rises up quickly without focusing on BUCK and sends Manson into the corner again. Back and forth the action goes, with Kennedy and Rondo mostly in control but BUCK coming in to break up pinfall tries. Finally, Rondo lands a forearm to BUCK to knock him off the apron. Then he goes for the Amazing KO cutter, but Manson counters with a full-nelson slam. Both men are down for around 15 seconds, with the match hanging in the balance. Manson drags himself up first and stands, looming over Ryan Rondo. Manson drags Rondo up, but Rondo kicks Manson in the gut and drops down for a sliding uppercut.... except Manson catches Rondos fist!!! Manson slowly twists Rondos arm and wags his finger at the FWA legend, but Chris Kennedy comes in from behind and blindsides Manson!!! Manson releases Rondo, but as Kennedy tries to wind up on Manson, BUCK charges in the ring and blasts Chris Kennedy with a huge spear!!!!! The crowd are on their feet, anticipating that the big moment is finally here, as Manson signals for BUCK to get Kennedy up for FEAST OF THE VULTURES!!!.... but suddenly the ref is gone!! Ryan Rondo has pulled the ref out of the ring!!! The refereee looks at Rondo incredulously! Rondo looks back at the ref, is caught on camera saying 'Sorry about this m8", and then putting both his hands around the refs neck and choking the ref!!! The ref immediately signals for the bell!!!

    Winner (DQ): Sin City Vultures

    Langdon Trafford: I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT I'M SEEING GUYS!! RYAN RONDO GOT HIS TEAM DISQUALIFIED!! HE DID IT INTENTIONALLY!!!! SCV HAS WON VIA DISQUALIFICATION!!!

    Piers Gallagher: He knew that Kennedy was one millisecond away from being put under with Feast of the Vultures!!!! So Ryan Rondo did what he does best, which is ruin the event!!!!!!

    David Weinstock: This wasn't a no-DQ match guys, but you're right... despicable actions by Ryan Rondo. He's ruined the whole finals. We were seeing a classic matchup, and he ruined it.


    Piers Gallagher: ASHLEY O'RYAN HAS LOST CONTROL OF THIS SHOW!!! HE NEEDS TO BE FIRED!!


    Boos immediately cascade down from the crowd as SCV realized that Rondo did it intentionally to get disqualified. Both Manson and BUCK leave the ring and immediately go after Rondo. In the ring, Chris Kennedy is also looking outside with a look of disbelief as the enraged BUCK starts pounding on Rondo. Crowd members start throwing items at Rondo ringside as BUCK manhandles him. Chris Kennedy rolls out of the ring with a shake of the head.... and blasts BUCK with Bittersweet Chin Music!!!!!!!! Ashley O'Ryan, with security in tow, comes out on the ramp as well. Security immediately get between Kennedy and Chris Manson, who are still trying to go at each other. Amid all the booing, Ashley O'Ryan can be heard screaming at Ryan Rondo "YOU'VE RUINED EVERYTHING!!!!" as Rondo just looks at O'Ryan with a shrug and a smile, as if acknowledging that he did what he did to prevent a forcible passing of the torch.

    The show goes off the air in chaos, with fans booing, throwing garbage at O'Ryan and Rondo, while Manson and Kennedy continue to try and fight.

    Re: Tag League Final 2018 RESULTS

    editors note: thanks to all of our matchwriters and contributors, and thanks to Starr for the bangin ass WGP graphic.

    as youll notice, many things about this show are bare-bones compared to our usual fare. simply put, our moderators have been having a tough go IRL and were occupied. i am hopeful and confident that this will be only a one-time occurrence, and hope you all understand. if there are any glaring mistakes you find in the show please contact me so i can fix it.

    the grading thread will be up tomorrow/ASAP, along with the card for the next FN. as we suffered a weeklong delay this show, well be getting right into the next FN.

    Re: Tag League Final 2018 RESULTS

    Really enjoyed this show despite the delay. Would rather you guys take your time like you did instead of rush it. Congratulations to the winners. Galloway I thought you put up a really good promo, but so did Wolf. That was easily the best matchup of the show.

    Also congrats to Eyes on becoming #1 contender for the X Division title. Hoping to get Ty there real soon.

    Tommy I hope you liked the last man standing write up. I tried to make it pretty back and forth for most of the match. Also thanks to the mod team for adding commentary and all that jazz in because I didn't. One thing I'll say though was my whole promo as well as when I wrote the match, was basically that Dave Sullivan wasn't there and he was in the hospital. Then he randomly comes out with Ty and celebrates with him at the end lol. That's okay though it's not a big deal. I was debating myself having him come out and help Dave in the match, but is didn't want to give Tommy anything to use to say he was cheated out of the match

    Also not surprised that Randall and Penny won. That was a good promo too.

    Two best promos imo though we're Wolf and Galloway, so I'm eager to see the grades and who ranked where.

    Does that Grand Prix mean here will be no CC?

    I would welcome a rematch with Tristan since I did not "beat" him yet.

    Tristan vs Wolf was an incredibly close match that was a hair away from being a tie.

    Re: Tag League Final 2018 RESULTS

    Really enjoyed this show. I like tag team wrestling so I've enjoyed seeing how the different combinations of teams have worked together and matched up against other combinations. Congrats to the Sin City vultures (love that name) on the win. I also really enjoyed the Wolf vs TJG match, well written.

    @Sully
    I enjoyed the match thoroughly, you write it really well and the hate was flowing between the characters which is great. I'm confused however as to why a Welsh contingent in the crowd would be cheering Thunder specifically. I'm Welsh but my character isn't as he's from Colorado Springs, Colorado (see bio). This is an issue I've had before on more than one occasion though where people have cut a promo on my character thinking he's Welsh.
    A fitting end to the feud though if that is indeed to be the end. I'm just disappointed that I wasn't able to promo for it. Working 50 hours a week isn't fun.

    I would welcome a rematch with Tristan since I did not "beat" him yet.
    No CC. We've cut it. GP is more competitive way of someone taking the main event spot at BIB rather than CC. Have to promo consistently rather than show up big for a one off.
