August 22 Showdown CenturyLink Center Omaha, Omaha, Nebraska
Play by play for tonight's Showdown matches
Missy: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from the Black Eye Galaxy, standing at 6’3” and weighing in at 286lb, he is… Space Lord!!!
“Space Lord” by Monster Magnet starts to play. The crowd looks up the rampway however fireworks go off and lights flicker at a side of the stage. Smoke starts to cover the long path side entrance way. Space Lord runs down the long pathway as the crowd looks on and cheers as they see Space Lord sliding in the ring. He walks around the ring, getting the crowd hyped up.
Missy: And his opponent, from Chicago, IL standing at 6’2” and weighing in at 230lb, he is… Eyesnsane!!!
The lights in the arena go out. The tron starts and the music hits the PA system. A spotlight shines brightly on a spot on the stage as smoke comes up from a circle where it is shinning and Eyesnsane is slowly elevated from beneath the stage as he comes into view. Once on the stage he stops and curls his left arm flexing his bicep for a moment as he looks out at the crowd. Then he makes his way to the ring, walking up the stairs before stepping into the ring between the top and second ropes and heading to the far turnbuckle where he climbs up to the second rope as he folds his arms in front of himself looking out at the crowd for a moment before hoping down.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Oscar: The crowd goes crazy as Space Lord charges across the ring at Eyesnsane. Space Lord connects with a right, and Eyes returns the right, followed by a left for good measure.
Lauren: Space Lord reels back a few paces, and out of nowhere, he hits a Dropkick to Eyesnsane, sending him into the corner, hard.
Oscar: As he stumbles back out of the corner, Space Lord hits another Dropkick, knocking Eyesnsane back into the corner. Space Lord darts across the ring and points over to Eyes.
Lauren: Now Space Lord is charging back across the ring, he hits a Running Splash! Eyesnsane falls to the ground. Space Lord leans down and pins Eyesnsane.
Oscar: Eyesnsane gets up from the mat, and when Space Lord gets up, Eyesnsane quickly begins hammering away at Space Lord’s back. He looks over at the ramp and begins waving. What is he doing?
Lauren: He’s definitely cracking down on Space Lord, but he keeps shouting over toward the ramp. He’s frantic as… Oh, what is this? Tim Staggs, Dax Beckett, and Devin Tyler rush down to the ring!
Oscar: They begin to wildly stomp on Space Lord!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Lauren: The Bad Boys continue to club and stomp and kick him while he’s down. He is rolling around on the ground as the bell continues to ring.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!
Oscar: The crowd is not happy about this. They start throwing things at the Bad Boys as Tim Staggs saunters around the ring, rubbing it in their faces.
Lauren: But what’s this? Drew Masters, Dorian B, Holly Wood, and the Fox Brothers rush down the ramp and slide inside of the ring. Mason Fox takes Tim down with a Clothesline as Holly and Dorian hit Superkicks to Dax.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Oscar: Security files down the ramp, breaking it up as Eyesnsane rolls out of the ring, holding his hands up innocently. Security is rough as they accompany the Bad Boys away from the ring. The fans cheer loudly for this as they shove the Bad Boys out of the ring.
Lauren: They shove the Bad Boys up the ring and through the curtains. One member of security fetches Space Lord and, after a few moments, they lead him up the ramp. The fans are in shock as the NLW stars stare Eyesnsane down before exiting the ring.
The cameras go backstage to witness the Bad Boys being ejected from the arena as they cause a ruckus.
We spot Tad Ezra and Donna Beauchamp of Northern Lights Wrestling, the GM and Spokesperson. They are watching the madness unfold at the door, shaking their heads. Tad pinches the bridge of his nose as Donna sighs, and they walk over toward the GM office. They enter as they exchange a glance.
Tad: This could be big if we can make it happen.
Donna: Don’t worry. We will make it happen.
Seconds later, the door opens up with a member of security who escorts Space Lord into the office. Tad and Donna take their seats as they motion for Space Lord to sit down in front of them. Without a word, he obliges.
Tad: Good evening, Mr… Space Lord.
Space Lord: It has not been so far.
Tad: On behalf of Northern Lights Wrestling, I would like to apologize to you for the events of this evening. As a member of the Honor Wrestling roster, you shouldn’t be subjected to such attacks from my roster. Admittedly, it is an embarrassment to me. I certainly hope that this doesn’t make you look poorly upon me, or the company I run.
Space Lord stays quiet for a moment before he sighs. He leans back in the chair and looks across to Tad and Donna.
Space Lord: No, it doesn’t. Only the ones known as the Bad Boys.
Donna: This is understandable. The Bad Boys are… a unique part of the roster. I can only imagine that the boss views them as a view grabber.
Tad: That is putting it mildly. I see where you are coming from, and, frankly? We have discussed this prior to this evening. We are interested in buying out your Honor Wrestling contract. We would certainly make it worth your while.
Donna: And imagine this. Space Lord debuting against… a member of the team that attacked him. How badly would you like to get your hands on the Bad Boys?
Space Lord smiles widely as Donna joins him. Tad takes a deep breath through his nose as he glares at Donna. Donna looks back at him and shrugs her shoulders.
Donna: What can I say? I make a hard sell.
Space Lord: One that I cannot refuse. Where do I sign?
Donna lets out a joyful laugh as she pushes the paperwork in his direction. She places a pen on top of the papers, and Space Lord signs them. The crowd gives off a mixed reaction for losing Space Lord, but also getting to see him tear into the Bad Boys. Donna reaches across the table and shakes his hand as the scene fades out.
We open up to the backstage area at Showdown and it is there we are able to see Christina Zdunich getting dressed for her upcoming match. She is putting on her mega man inspired tights, along with her cyan tube top. Christina smirks as she looks over at her daughter who crosses her arms and looks right into the eyes of Brittany.
Brittany: Well mom tonight is the night you get to step into the ring with the likes of Alicia Lukas. Are you ready for her?!
Christina: As ready as I am going to be. I know a lot is at stake in this match. After all a clear cut way to getting a championship match is to beat the champion herself. If I can somehow survive against Alicia maybe the company might find it in their heart to perhaps give me a shot at her.
Brittany: Well it has been a rough couple of battles lately as you fought Courtney Leinart to the best of your abilities and I know you stepped away from SCW but this is your chance to really succeed and to really show the entire world that you want this more than they could ever realize.
Christina smiles as she looks back at her daughter.
Christina: Of course I want this… I mean there’s nothing else for me to do. I truly thought about retiring but after the way Kate ruined that moment in SCW I knew I couldn’t step away. I just couldn’t let her have the last laugh. I didn’t change my entire style just to quit. I did it to extend my career and I won’t let that blonde bimbo get the best of me. Not now and certainly not ev…
Before she could finish her sentence that is when the door to her locker room bursts open and we are able to see Kate Steele emerging through them with her husband Teddy right by her side. Kate cracks a wide grin as she grabs Brittany and slams her right against the wall. The Pride announcer falls to the mat grabbing at her head in pain as Christina quickly stands up and screams at Kate.
Christina in a rage tries to run at Kate but the Siren quickly grabs Christina as she slams her hard against the wall. She picks her up and repeatedly slams her head first against the wall busting the woman up.
Kate: What’s wrong Christina?! I thought you were better than me! I thought you were going to put me in my place I guess you were mistaken!
Kate smirks as she begins to stomp Christina out hard over and over again. Teddy smirks as he sets up a table in the room. Kate lifts Christina up and has her in position for a Punk Driver. Without hesitation she sends her through the table leaving Christina broken in two as she grins before wiping her bloody hands on her shirt.
Kate: Looks like I got blood on my hands. That was step one, now to send a message to Brooke.
Teddy and Kate begin to kiss one another as they walk out of the room with evil grins on their faces.
Latoya Hixx vs Kate Steele
Missy: This next match is set for one fall. First on the way to the ring… From Toronto, Ontario, standing at 5’5” and weighing in at 114lb, she is… “The Boss” Latoya Hixx!!!
Time to Rock and Roll plays when she comes out wearing her new black attire and starts pointing at the fans and walks down the ramp and slapping high fives to the Audience while she gets in the ring and points to her fans once again and stands there when her music fades she waits for the bell to begin the match.
Missy: And her opponent, from Berkshire, England, standing at 5’2” and weighing in at 110lb, she is… “The Siren” Kaaaaaate Steeeeeeeeeeeeele!!!
Bad Reputation by Avril Lavigne begins to blast all over the speakers. The moment it does “The Siren” Kate Steele emerges from the curtains accompanied by her husband. She is clad in a white hoodie. She slowly paces her way to the ring as her husband follows. The crowd welcomes her with a loud ovation of boos and she flips them off as she slides into the ring. She takes her hoodie off throwing it to her husband to show off her freshly dyed hair. She is wearing Union Flag attired as she smiles bouncing a bit.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Oscar: Latoya comes in early, meeting Kate in the center of the ring, catching her with a Clothesline. As Kate falls down to the mat, Latoya hits a Double Knee Drop to Kate’s chest. She drops down for an early cover.
Lauren: Kate gets a shoulder up before the referee can even count a “One”. Kate rolls outside of the ring to regroup, looking back inside at Latoya. Latoya taunts her to come back inside, but Kate shakes her head.
Oscar: Kate points her back, but Latoya has the fans on her side as she walks back and forth.
Crowd: GODDESS CHICK! GODDESS CHICK! GODDESS CHICK!
Latoya: You attacked my sister, Christina! You’re gonna pay for that!
Lauren: Latoya is not happy about what’s just happened with Christina a few moments ago. Kate laughs at that, but while she’s distracted, Latoya flies over the top rope with a Suicide Dive that lands with Kate!
Oscar: Latoya holds onto her ribs as she lifts Kate up and throws her inside of the ring. She slides inside and drops on top of Kate for the cover again.
Lauren: Kate gets her shoulder up and then she stands up before kicking Latoya in the side of the head. She looks down at Latoya and punches her right in the face.
Oscar: She bounces off of the ropes and rams her knee to the back of the head of Latoya, sending it slamming into the mat. Kate jumps on her back and grabs onto her hair. The referee warns her, but she shouts at him.
Lauren: Kate begins smashing Latoya’s face right into the mat, repeatedly. The referee warns her, but she’s clearly not hearing it as he begins to count.
Oscar: Kate stands up and gives the referee a shove. The referee admonishes her, but she continues to argue with them. This gives Latoya time to get up and comes up behind Kate for a One Armed Neckbreaker.
Lauren: Latoya picks Kate up off of the mat and flings her into the corner. She stands in the opposite corner before running forward. She does a Handspring Headscissors Takedown to Kate.
Oscar: Kate skids across the ring as Latoya dives down for the cover.
Lauren: Latoya can’t believe it. She stands up and pulls Kate up to her feet. Kate shoves her and then catches her with a Superkick that sends Latoya to the mat. She leans down and grabs onto Latoya’s arm!
Oscar: Shipwrecked! She locks on the Seated Fujiwara Armbar. Latoya tries to scoot over to the ropes, but Kate refuses to let go. Latoya is fighting the inevitable, but she reaches the point where she can’t any longer and she taps! It’s over!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Missy: Here is your winner via submission… Kate Steele!!!
The Camera cuts to backstage following the last match, the scene fades into Diego Rodriguez.
Diego: Please welcome my guests at this time the Pride Tag Team Champions The Three-Way.
Earl, Dahlia and Sarah step into the interview area.
Diego: You demanded and received a hardcore title shot on the upcoming edition of Pride, but should Tatsu win tonight then your titles will be on the line as well, so Earl let me ask you about tonight.
Earl: Normally Diego, I’d give you my thoughts, but tonight isn’t about me its about my talented wife.
Diego: Okay then Dahlia what are your thoughts on Jerry Wilcox making this match tonight.
Dahlia: I think he made a huge mistake, Tatsu isn’t ready to step into a one on one match with me, and I know somewhere Winter and the other member of the gift are giving her a pep talk and trying to pump her up for this match, and making her believe she has a chance to beat me, but she doesn’t, I get very few opportunities to wrestle one on one I relish every chance I get, tonight Diego, Tatsu well get another yet another wrestling lesson and her grade will be a big F, I haven’t gotten to say this in an awhile, tonight Tatsu will discover first hand why I’m Rotten To The Core.
We find ourselves backstage and it is there where Kate Steele is sitting on a backstage attendants arm. Kate is outside of Brooke’s office and can’t help but grin evilly as she looks into the camera.
Kate: So is this how everyone wanted for me to address this company? In this form? I made a bloody fucking promise that I would show up in a big way and that is exactly what I am doing. Brooke must think I am her puppet. Free to just take on GIFT? But I am no one’s lap dog. I am not going to do something just because you tell me to do something.
Girl: LET ME GO!!!!
Kate: Brooke you better open up the fucking door before one of your precious staff members gets hurt in a real bad way. For those of you just tuning in this right here is one of the makeup women in the back. She does the make up for all of the wrestlers. She is a kind soul but I truly don’t like being fucked with and disrespected! You have Winter talking shit about me. You have Tatsu jumping on my back and yet no sort of consequences. I am supposed to just take it?! This company doesn’t even respect me to give me blonde pictures of myself for all on the web to enjoy. Instead Brooke rather disrespect me and I am not going to tolerate that so let this be a message to her that she better answer my demands.
Kate sits down on the girl’s arm and places her into her SHIPWRECKED submission. The girl is screaming loud but Kate pulls back more and more as she doesn’t let up.
Kate: I will break it unless I get answers! Why doesn’t media ever showcase me as a Blonde?!
Girl: I don’t know… I just do makeup please let me go!
Kate: Brooke this is one of the staff members for your company. An innocent bystander but she is someone who you COULD HAVE SAVED!
Kate can’t help but grin evilly as she pulls back further and eventually we can hear a loud snapping noise. The woman is in absolute tears as the damage has been done. Kate stands up proud of herself as she dusts herself off and stands right in front of Brooke’s door.
Kate: I am right here FACE TO FACE Bitch… Open the fuck up and give me what I bloody want!
Brooke yells out.
Brooke: It’s not locked, turn the handle yourself and walk in.
Brooke sits behind her desk with her legs crossed over on top of the table, Brooke leans back with her hands on the back of her head watching everything from a flat screen sitting on the wall.
Brooke looks up to her left to see Kate.
Brooke: I see you finally decided to meet with me, how rare of you to do.
Kate smiles as she still has some blood on her hands. An evil grin appears on her lips as she glares directly into the eyes of Brooke.
Kate: Of course I was going to meet you. Whether you wish to acknowledge it or not I am one of your biggest stars and I should be treated as such.. So it took me a while but here I am in the flesh. No more bullshit, no more games. I want some answers and I want them right now. First one being why is it that you are always expecting so much from me. Why are you always putting me right in the line of battle, always trying to use me as a way to get to GIFT?!
Brooke shakes her head a at first.
Brooke: You just said why Kate. Let me help you out. You just asked… Why do I expect so much from you… But you also just said You are one of the biggest stars. Is Honor not expect so much from someone who says they are the biggest stars?
Kate: Yet you always try to find a way to embarrass me or use me like I am some puppet. I am no one’s puppet nor am I going to do something just because you don’t like a group. My issues with GIFT stems from Delia boxing me up like a caged animal and not treating me like I was a member of the group. It comes from Vargas constantly talking me down with her stupid stats that nobody cares about. I couldn’t give two shits about Tatsu and as far as Winter goes well…
Kate just shakes her head with a sigh as she seems conflicted.
Kate: It’s a hurtful situation. She is probably the only one I consider a best friend and part of me wants that connection back. I want to relive the Guilty Pleasure days and I am willing to do whatever to win that version of Steph back. If I have to get my hands dirty and do what she does so be it, but I am not going to stop until I have my friend back
Kate shakes her head.
Kate: I am sick of people having this notion where I only want to do something when a title is at stake. That couldn’t be so much farther from the truth!
Brooke: A group like the GIFT is a group you don’t want to fight because you think I am treating you like a puppet, yet you just explained that you have issues with some of them. You sit here and say on social media that you fight them but then you are nowhere to be found. If being the person who signs the paychecks makes me a puppet master then so be it.
What I know for sure is that all four of them have called you out, you say you are the biggest star. So everyone what kind of star you are by standing up to the very group that treats you like dirt not the not who signs the checks. It’s easy to come at me, or to get blood on your hands by bullying a non wrestler. The thing is, none of that shows how big of a star you are.
Going after the wrestlers who call you out are. You say you only showing up for titles matches is further from the truth. Well prove it, I don’t take what you say at face value, you have to prove it just like others do. Take Dahlia Rotten or Earl Lockyer for example, they would love to be the Honor Champion someday but right now they say they will be the best tag team out there and they prove it every week.
Alicia Lukas, Alex Jones, Equinox, Shinjiro, Kevinn Hunter, just to name a few don’t go yelling they are the biggest star all loud trying to puff their chests. They show it in the ring. When Alicia gets called out, she settles it in the ring. You get called out and you run, how does that make you a big star when you run and hide from Winter calling you out, or Tatsu, or Delia, or that other one.
You ever thought that maybe they call you out because they know you will hide? Ever think to yourself, why you get mistreated by so many might be because you allow them to do it.
You claim to be the biggest star, I say your the easiest target. Not because you couldn’t do anything about it, but because you choose not to. To me that is worse then someone who at least tries to fight them. Only you can change how you get treated not me.
Kate: Well I took out Christina tonight, I broke an arm, what else do you want me to do. What is in my future because I am ready to make an impact and ready to destroy whoever comes in my way. So line them up! I am ready to take them all down!
Brooke: I would say Winter but she took your spot and is now tied up with Jessie Salco for the Legacy Title. You did say Delia locked you in a cage. Want to take her on first? How about Mercedes, she gets on your nerves, you want her first? How about a match with Christina Rose as she did nothing wrong for you to attack her and I’m sure would love to get in the ring with you.
Yeah that is what I would do, I’m sure Christina will want that, she is my… nevermind you just get ready for your next match and who knows maybe we will advertise you with blond hair next time.
Kate: Good, and if I don’t like how things go. You just might find yourself with a broken arm. Take care for now…
With that Kate walks out with an evil grin on her lips.
Christina Rose vs Alicia Lukas
Missy: This next match is set for one fall. First on the way to the ring, standing at 5’5” and weighing in at 115lb, she is… "The Blossoming One" Christina Roooooooooose!!!
Meganerd by YTcracker begins to blast all across the speakers as it does so Christina Rose makes her way from the back curtain with her fiance Seleana Zdunich. Christina smiles as she blows kisses to the crowd as she makes her way down to the ring. She slaps the outstretched hands of all of the roaring fans. She quickly slides into the ring and kips up to her feet as she waves her hands in the air getting the crowd behind her.
Missy: And her opponent!
"Wild Eyes" By Parkway drive hits as Alicia steps out with a black hoodie over her upper half with the hood up over her long blond hair. She makes her way down to the ring and runs up the steps before climbing the ropes on the outside, she flips the hood back before putting her arms out , she smiles at the crowd before leaping into the ring from the outside and taking off the hoodie

Oscar: The Honor Champion goes hard right out of the gate. Christina holds onto her back as Alicia lifts Christina up from the mat. She sends Christina into the ropes, and as Christina rebounds, Alicia catches her with a Tilt-A-Whirl Backbreaker.
Lauren: Christina again clutches her back as Alicia drops a knee to Christina’s forehead. Alicia drops down to her knees and hooks the leg.
Oscar: Barely a two count for Alicia. Christina is still reeling from the attack earlier by Kate. How is she still able to kick out?
Lauren: Alicia stands up as Christina comes out of nowhere, rolling Alicia up for the pin.
Oscar: Christina caught the Honor Champion off guard, but barely got a “one” count. Christina gets to her feet first and kicks Alicia in the face. She spins around with a Spinning Heel Kick to Alicia, but Alicia ducks underneath it.
Lauren: Alicia grabs onto Christina and lifts her up for The Georgia Drop! (GTS) She’s hit the finisher! Christina looks out of it. Alicia goes for the cover!

Lauren: Alicia is having second thoughts as she decides to put Christina down gently…
Oscar: Brittany throws a white towel in the ring then slides in to check on her mother!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Missy: Your winner of this match by…
Missy goes to the ref as she is not sure how to call the ruling. They talk for very briefly.
Missy: The referee has stop this match due to a towel being thrown in the ring on behalf of Christina Rose. Your winner by Submission… The Honor Champion… Alicia Lukas!!!
Tatsu Ikeda vs Dahlia Rotten
Missy: This next match s set for one fall. It is also for the right for the Kawaii Dragons to fight for the Pride Tag Team Championship on this upcoming Pride Tag Team Wrestling!!!
The opening to "Karate" by Babymetal begins to play as the lights dim down to show a silhouette of a woman standing behind a screen in a karate "Ready stance". She transitions into a Crane stance and follows through with a front stance high punch right through the screen, making her way through. She is wearing a black ghi with a black belt, and her hair up in blonde pigtails. She charges to the ramp and then slowly falls into a Crouching Tiger position as she glares down at the ring with an almost twisted smile on her face as she holds it, playing mind games as she works out her strategy in her mind. She then comes back to a standing position as she treads lightly down the ramp on the tips of her toes.
Missy: Iiiiiiiintroducing first, from Tokyo, The Hardcre Tag Team Champion, she is… “The Fire Dragon” Tatsu Ikeeeeeeeeeeedaaaaaaa !!!
As she reaches the bottom of the ramp, she begins running until she catches onto the top rope with her hand, holding in an almost artistic pose with one leg bent, and the tip of her other foot dangling lightly. After a second of this, she pulls herself onto the apron, flipping over the top rope and steadying herself as she stays vertical before falling into a side split, impressing the audience as she holds it for several seconds. Just as quickly as she falls into the pose, she finishes the initial flip, charging across the ring and running up to the top turnbuckle as she returns to the Crane stance. She looks out across the audience as she smiles before flipping off and landing in the Crouching Tiger once more. She turns to run across to the opposing turnbuckle, giving it the same treatment. As she flips back down, she turns and rests, waiting for her opponent.
Missy: And her opponent!
Menage Et Trois by Paloma Ford starts to play, the crowd showing the arena with boos as Earl steps on the stage accompanied by Dahlia and Sarah,

Lauren: Tatsu has a deathwish if she thinks she can just slap Dahlia at will!

Lauren: That will slow Tatsu down. Dahlia grabs Tatsu and sends her to the corner. Tatsu hits the turnbuckle hard, Dahlia runs at Tatsu and nails a Body Avalanche!

Oscar: I think your right Laured. Looks like the Three Way has a Gift for the Kawaii Dragos,not the other way around!
Winter Elemental vs Jessie Salco
Missy: This next match is for the Legacy Championship!!!!
Broken Dreams by Shaman's harvest. The crowd pops big for the country women WInter...
“What's that metronome I hear
Perhaps the end is drawing near
You never hear the shot that takes you down
Now your dreams a memory, and seems
More true from far away
Just like smoke that fades and makes no sound”
Winter comes out as the crowd pop even bigger. She gets to the edge of the ramp way and howls for her wolves. The crowd howls back as she begins to walk down the ramp.
“I dream broken dreams, I make them come true
I make them for you
I make them for you
Almost to the mountaintop, you slip and fall just like a stone
Rolling ever faster to this nightmare you have sown
You had it all right in your grasp, but in a breath your minute passed
Now, at last, the end has come, you are all alone”
Missy: From The Snowy Mountains of Canada, the challenger…. One half of the Hardcore Tag Team Champions…. Wiiiiiiinterrrrr Elemennnnnnnnntallllllll!!!!!!!
“Out of time, so say goodbye
What was yours, now is mine
I dream broken dreams, I make them come true
I make them for you
I make them for you
All your dreams are just illusion
Based on nothing and confusion
Don't you look behind the curtain
No more time, the end is certain
I dream broken dreams, I make them come true
I make them for you
I make them for you”
The song cuts off as the screen fades out as Winter waits for Jessie to to introduced.
The pounding, heavy riff of "No Friends" by Bleeding Through begins to blare through the speakers and ten seconds into the song "The Heavy Metal Angel" Jessie Salco" comes out from the back headbanging to the song as she does.
Missy: And her opponent. She is the Legacy Champion… From Miami Florida she is "The Heavy Metal Angel" Jessie Salcoooooooo!!!
Following her introduction Jessie throws up the metal horns before making her way down to the ring, she slides into the ring and reacts to the chorus of boos with two middle fingers high in the air as she waits for the bell to ring.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Oscar: Winter runs at Jessie, Jessie jumps up in the air wrapping her legs around Winter's head for a Hurricarana!!!

Lauren: Winter gets up to her feet as Jessie runs to the opposite side and bounces off the ropes. Jessie goes through the middle ropes and nails Winter with a Suicide Dive!
Oscar: Jessie hits her head on the unforgiving floor on the way down as well.
Lauren: Winter and Jessie get back to there feet, the two start trading punches!
Oscar: The ref stops the count and slides out the ring to get between the Legacy Champion and Hardcore Champion.
Lauren: Looks like the ref has controlled… Winter grabs Jessie by her hair, Jessie does the same to winter. The ref tries to break them up but can’t do it. Jessie punches Winter in the face, Winter lands a punch of her own!
Oscar: The ref warns them both to get the ring but neither will listen!
Lauren: Winter can’t win the title with a DQ, she needs to get Jessie in the ring!
Oscar: Winter grabs Jessie and sends her to the ring post! Winter goes after her with a Cross Body but misses as Jessie gets out the way. Jessie now kicks Winter in the face!
Lauren: Some payback from when the match started!
Oscar: The ref grabs Jessie but Jessie pulls away and charges at Winter. The two champions grab each others throats and start choking each other!
Lauren: The ref calls for the bell, looks like both are getting DQ!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
The crowd boos as Tatsu, Delia and Mercedes come running down the rampway to help out Winter. Jessie lets go of Winter and grabs her title. They circle around the ring as Jessie jumps the barricade. Jessie places her Legacy Title over her head. The crowd can’t help but cheer for Jessie with a mix of boos but more cheers.
Missy: The ref has ruled this match a no contest!!! Therefore still the Legacy Champion… Jessie Salco!!!
"Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" by U2 sounds throughout the arena before Mercedes Vargas storms out towards the entrance ramp and walks with purpose as she heads to the ring.
Missy:Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Mercedes Vargas!
The camera takes a quick pan of the crowd, mostly the more vocal among them as they make thumb down gestures before we currently back to the arena.
Oscar:If looks could kill. Is it me or does it look like Mercedes Vargas woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?
Lauren: Trust me, it's not you. Mercedes Vargas, former Women's Honor Champion, is not in a good mood and who can blame her? It has got to drive the rest of GIFT crazy by what happened at Pride two weeks ago in the Mayhem when Mercedes Vargas, Winter Elemental and Tatsu Ikeda were eliminated in short order.
Oscar: Not to mention Honor Commissioner Brooke Saxon eliminated Mercedes just as she said she would. Promise made, promise kept.
Lauren: And we can promise that Mercedes will be in tag team action Saturday night at Pride teaming up with Rory Rockefeller against Kedar Hasheem and Jacob Johnson. Tonight, that much the farthest from her mind.
Mercedes already has a mic in hand as her music fades to the sound of the electric crowd.
Mercedes Vargas We have a vocal crowd tonight. That's good, that's good. I hope you're just as loud when Winter takes the Legacy Championship from Jessie Salco!
Mercedes Vargas Music to my ears. But, I've only begun to get vocal here tonight. Honestly, I shouldn't be out here in this ring. When someone is given an opportunity to stand in this ring and air their grievances and say their piece, they take it. They don't stand in front of a camera, they don't work their fingers behind a keyboard. They don't act like a crybaby.
Mercedes makes a crybaby gesture and speaks in a mocking voice.
Mercedes Vargas WAAAAAAAAAAAH! MY BOSS IS PICKING ON ME! MAKE IT STOP, MAKE IT STOP!
Flailing her arms to milk it hope incites more boos. Mercedes flashes a smile.
Mercedes Vargas Little girls play dress up, women don't need to. Kate Steele thinks her threats of breaking someone's arm is supposed to intimidate people. Actually, it's quite the opposite. It's laughable. We're supposed take the threats of someone who despite being in Honor for a year and a half and being a former champion barely shows any effort in the ring and that I could count the amount of wins she has on both hands?
Mercedes didn't even attempt to hide her laughter as the mic she's holding picks it up. She regains her composure, then shakes her head.
Mercedes Vargas You know what, if Kate wants to stand in front of a camera or behind a keyboard, that's fine. At least she still has a job. And, hey, let's be honest, if your employer continues to pay you even though your performance is subpar at worse and mediocre at best, get those paychecks while you still can. I mean, her husband must be loving it, why not Kate too?
Oscar: Mercedes showing blantant disrespect to the former Hardcore Tag Team Champion here. Mercedes better be careful.
Lauren:I think that advice is on the side of caution.
Mercedes Vargas Unlike Kate "Bitchface" Steele, I don't have stage fright, Brooke Saxon. You got what you wanted, GIFT didn't win the Mayhem, and you eliminated me just like you said..
Crowd: YOU DESERVE IT! YOU DESERVE IT! YOU DESERVE IT!
Mercedes Vargas Yeah, and if there was a Mount Rushmore of boring states, Nebraska would be first! You deserve it!
Mercedes lowers her microphone taking in the abuse from the crowd, then adds "You're only booing because it's true." without missing stride.
Mercedes Vargas You can have your gophers and your puppets and your hired assassins, Brooke, but you will never break me. So bring your best, sweetheart. Because I'm still better than your entire roster even at my worst.
Mercedes drops her microphone with flair as “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” cues again and she takes her leave by way of the steel steps to overwhelming boos.
Oscar: Some strong words coming from Mercedes there but one has to wonder if she will live to regret what she asked for.
Lauren: Mercedes is entering dangerous waters with Brooke and she was already stripped of her Honor Championship rematch and had to start as number one in the Mayhem. If she keeps this up, things are only going to get worse before it gets better. Look how she dealt with GIFT, look how she dealt with Kate last show. There's a reason why you don't cross the boss.
Oscar: Mercedes Vargas, still unpinned, still undefeated now going over 400 days. Will the Argentine Assassin keep her 13-month streak intact? Find out at Pride Tag Team Team Wrestling, Saturday night right here on WGN America.
The image fades on Mercedes getting an equal share of cheers and boos as she heads up the ramp to the back.
Caleb Storms vs Mickey Carroll
Missy: This next match is the Main Event andd is for the Honor Championship!!!
The opening scream for the song "Test Your Metal" by Unleash The Archers is heard over the PA and the lights start flashing across the arena before Caleb comes out headbanging along to the song before he poses for the crowd at the top of the ramp.
Missy: Introducing, from Syracuse, New York and weighing in at 220ibs, he is "The Metal Storm" Caleb Storms!
Caleb makes his way down the ramp slapping hands with the fans as he makes his way down the ramp before sliding into the ring and throwing up the metal horns as he waits for Mickey Carroll.
Missy: And his opponent!!!
The opening of "Amazing Grace" by Dropkick Murphys plays as Mickey pushes through the curtains. He pulls the cigarette out of his mouth and drops it on the ground, quickly putting it out as he marches back and forth across the stage. He looks from side to side, nodding his head at the cheers before pointing out into the audience, starting an powerful "Oi! Oi! Oi!" chant that really gets the crowd pumped.
Missy: From London, England… He is the Honor Champion… Mickey Carroll!!!
He dashes straight down the ramp where he leaps up and onto the ring apron. He paces back and forth, stomping along to the beat of the music before climbing inside. He looks up at the ceiling and then signals the trinity, kissing his fingers and then pointing up as he waits for the bell to ring.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Oscar: Caleb, still in his rookie year of the business, has a chance to get his hands on two championship this week. First here in Honor as he takes on Mickey.
Lauren: The fact you have time to explain that shows you how focus these men are. Most run right at each other when the bell rings.
Oscar: It ay be a slow start for now but Honor fans know that our matches tend to be fast pace no matter if they start things off slow.
Lauren: With what all took place already I don't blame them. Kate is hurting Honor Personal,The Gift can’t be happy with Tatsu’s loss and Winter vs Jessie being a no contest. The Bad Boys showed up in the opening match to everyone’s surprise.
Oscar: And now the man event as both men wait to see who will do what first
Lauren: Spoke too soon, as Mickey hits a Clothesline on Caleb who came in storming towards Mickey!
Oscar: Caleb gets up and rus at Mickey again for another Clothesline but Mickey ducks and grabs on to Caleb… Gutwrench Powerbomb by the champion!
Lauren: Mickey stands up and jumps high in the air going for an Elbow Drop, Caleb rolls out the way. Mickey gets up, Caleb stays down and kicks the back of Mickey’s knee, knocking him down to the mat.
Oscar: Caleb gets to his feet as does Mickey. Caleb kicks Mickey in the gut then plants him with a DDT!
Lauren: Caleb wastes no time as he picks up the champion and gets him up for a Suplex!
Oscar: Nice set of moves by Caleb, that’s one way to tire out the champion early on… No wait, Caleb goes for the cover!
Lauren: Just a one count, but it could have been two, maybe a three count had Caleb hooked the leg!
Oscar: Caleb and Mickey now stand in the middle of the ring. The fans cheer for both men.
Lauren: As they should, one is the champion and the other is the future. Both of these men are why the fans watch wrestling!
Oscar: Caleb goes to kick Mickey in the gut again but Mickey catches Caleb leg. Caleb hops on one leg a few times then nails Mickey with an Enziguri!
Lauren: Mickey goes down to the mat as Caleb eagerly goes down for another pin attempt.
Oscar: Mickey gets his foot on the bottom rope. Caleb gets frustrated as he goes to drag Mickey a few feet away from the ropes, but Mickey rolls him up into a Small Package!
Lauren: Mickey is using his veteran status to reverse Caleb’s plan back onto him. Caleb is about as winded as Mickey is as they both stumble up to their feet.
Oscar: Caleb comes at him with a Superkick, but Mickey ducks underneath it and catches his foot. Caleb looks for another Enziguiri, but Mickey twists into a Dragon Screw.
Lauren: The Honor Champion takes a few steps back as Caleb gets to his hands and knees. Mickey rears back his leg and does a Punt Kick to Caleb’s chin. He marches around the ring with his hands up in the air!
Oscar: Mickey flips Caleb over onto his back as he drops down for the pin.
Lauren: Mickey is in a bit of shock as he stands up. Caleb uses this minor distraction to get to his feet and hits Mickey with a Spear! Caleb then mounts Mickey and begins unleashing punch after punch to the champ.
Oscar: Mickey gets his feet underneath Caleb’s chest and shoves him away as he scrambles up to his feet. He charges at Caleb, but Caleb lifts him up for a Back Body Drop.
Lauren: Caleb rushes over to the top ropes, and wastes little time in flying off with a 450 Splash. He holds onto his ribs for a moment before hooking both legs as he leans back.
Oscar: The Honor Champion kicks out. He stands up, but Caleb goes for a Hurricanrana. However, Mickey reverses it into a Powerbomb. He hooks the legs before fully bridging into a pin.
Lauren: Caleb kicks out of the pin. He then claps his feet against Mickey’s ears. The two men get back to their feet, but Mickey catches Caleb with a Gutwrench Suplex. He then rushes to the top ropes and flies off with a Frog Splash.
Oscar: Mickey is about ready to hook the leg, but Caleb puts his leg over the top rope, using it to pull himself closer to the apron. Mickey picks Caleb up and sends him toward the ropes.
Lauren: Caleb reverses the Irish Whip on the Irishman. As Mickey comes back, he hits a Kitchen Sink Knee to Caleb. He then wraps an arm around Caleb’s neck and lifts him up into a Vertical Suplex position.
Oscar: Drunken Lullabies! Mickey hits his finisher as he brings Caleb back over to finish the move. Mickey rolls Caleb over as he is highly winded, and he hooks the leg.
Suddenly a song that they haven't heard before hits. "Sleepwalker" by Parkway Drive. The mood changes as Alex Jones steps out onto the stage.
His long black hair wet down his back and shoulders as he moves down to the ring in a black and red Dogs of war t-shirt and a pair of black jeans.
He seems to ignore the action inside of the ring, or fans as he stomps down to the ring. Caleb rolls out of the ring, stumbling as he walks past Alex, who continues on. Alex gets inside of the ring as Mickey gets the Honor Championship back. "Sleepwalker" fades out as Alex stands in the ring with a mic in hand.
Alex: Did you all miss me?
There is a roar from the crowd and Alex smiles with a nod, he riles them up a little with his hands in the air.
Alex: Come on guys...I could barely hear that...did you miss me or what?
Another roar this time louder as Alex smiles and places his hand to his ear Hulk Hogan style.
Alex: Damn...you know...I wish I could say the same, but I really didn't miss any of you......
Alex's smile fades, his entire attitude changes as he lowers his eyes. Then, Alex goes to smash the microphone into Mickey’s head, but Mickey ducks. Alex catches him with a Back Heel Kick. He takes the belt from the ground, and as Mickey gets up, Alex cold cocks him with the belt. He continues to smash it into Mickey’s head as the crowd boos him. Mickey is out cold as Alex scoops the microphone back up.
Alex: And I also know that those of you who did cheer, are full of shit. The last time I was seen was a month ago in that Mayhem match where I was glad I could entertain you all with my idiotic antics, but that was all done to prove a point. See I heard all the naysayers talking crap week in and week out about me and I just sat back and took it waiting for this moment. Just incase some of you were living under a rock I think you may have missed...this....
Alex stops and moves his arms showing the Dogs of war shirt. He gives Mickey a few hard stomps before tugging at his shirt and continuing.
Alex: I joined the dogs of war. Which means there is now a representative of one of the most dominant factions in wrestling today in your midst. Amd with that comes a realisation. I have gone too soft on all of you. I was all about respect and "Honor", forgive the pun. I actually shook the hand of this ginger moron who took my title.
Alex looks back down at Mickey and as Mickey crawls up the ropes to a standing position, Alex darts across the ring and Clotheslines Mickey over the top rope. He takes a deep breath before tossing the Honor Championship right at Mickey.
Alex: I have allowed Kevin Hunter to breathe my air....I have allowed others to take my spot and my spotlight from me.....but that is about to change. See gone is the Alex Jones who wanted to help Honor build back that glory, gone is the guy who was willing to shake everyones hand and be respectful to those around me. No..this is all about one person...this is all about me....
Alex throws the mic down as "Sleepwalker" hits again, he slides from the ring and grabs onto the back of Mickey’s head, rushing him face first into the ring post. He turns around and walks backstage with his arms raised in the air as the show goes off the air.
