August 25 Pride Tag Team Wrestling, Rushmore Plaza Civic Center, Rapid City, South Dakota
Tonight's Pay by Pay for Pride Tag Team Wrestling
Brittany: This opening match is set for one fall!!!
"Drink Drank Drunk" by HELLYEAH starts playing as Rory comes through the curtains carrying a cocktail shaker, mixing it up.
Brittany: First from Chicago, IL standing at 6’4” and weighing in at 265 lb, he is “Rocky”... Rory Rockefeller!!!
Rory walks along the aisle, looking for outreached cups that he pours little bits of his signature drink into their cups. After making his way around the ring, Rory sets the shaker down on the ring steps as he runs up the steps. Rory gets half way in the ring before rocking out to his theme music. He steps inside all the way and holds his fists in the air and walks around…
Brittany: And his partner!!!
The arena lights turn off and the crowd is hyped up for what was in store. As the opening of “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” by U2 blares across the PA system, the mood of the crowd changes instantly and the arena is under the subtle glowing of the lights. As the lyrics finally kick in, a figure emerges; the highlight of their attire is being under the illusion. Mercedes Vargas stops short of the entrance ramp, hands on waist, and overlooking the crowd.
Brittany: Viene entrando su camino a la cuadrilátero, de Buenos Aires, Argentina…pesando de 56 kilos…MERCEEEEEDEEEES VAAAARGAAAAS!
Cheers, boos and catcalls soon greet her. Oblivious and yet satisfied with their reaction for several seconds, she flips her long hair, then makes her way to the ring. As she goes up the steps and walks to the end of the ring apron, she climbs to the turnbuckle, then turns her head back as the camera shows her determined expression-perhaps a message that her opponent will be in for a tough fight. She vaults into the ring and walks over to the opposite corner where she relaxes along the corner ropes while waiting for her opponents to arrive.
Brittany: And there opponents!!!
"Thunder" by Imagine Dragons begins playing over the speakers as the lights go haywire. As the hook begins, Kader comes out onto the stage and jumps around, showing off his oiled chest, as well as his power. He roars out at the crowd.
Brittany: Coming to the ring from West Hollywood, California by way of Bushehr, Iran, standing at 6'7" and weighing in at 297 lb, he is... Kader Hasheem!!!
The crowd gives off a mixed reaction as Kader shouts out at them. He continues down the ramp, rubbing at his nose before flinging his baseball cap out into the crowd. He walks to the head of the ring and he grabs onto the top rope, bringing himself up onto the apron. He climbs in over the top rope before walking around the ring, gauging the crowd reaction. He comes to the center of the ring and let's out a monstrous roar. He then settles into the corner as the lights return to normal.
Brittany: And his partner!
Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand to play around the arena. The lyrics are displayed on the Honortron for the fans to sing along to.
“So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a crosshair”
I'm just a shot, then we can die
I know I won't be leaving here with you
Brittany: Coming down to the ring. Weighing in at 200ibs, from San Diego, CA Jacob Johnson!!!!
“I say, take me out!
I say you don't know
You say you don't know
I say, take me out!
If I move this could die
Eyes move this can die
I want you to take me out
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)”

The crowd boos as Mercedes celebrates her win by herself, working the turnbuckles in jest of the crowd. She continues to rub it in as Rory and Kader are in an all out brawl. The security team comes down to break it up. They pull the two men apart as Mercedes smiles wickedly from the inside.

The camera moves backstage to see Marissa Henry standing outside of the men’s locker room. She knocks on the door, and moments later, it slowly opens. She takes a deep breath to continue when she stops herself and sighs.
Rory: Can I help you?
Marissa: Yes… No… I was looking for…
Rory: Let me guess. Someone more important than me?
Marissa: Oh, no, not that. You had a very impressive performance earlier tonight.
Rory shrugs his shoulders, straightening the towel around his waist. He steps further out into the hallway.
Rory: That’s a great consolation prize. Who did you want to see? I got a bar to tend to. Get it? Bar-tend-er?
Marissa is about to answer Rory’s first question when Mickey Carroll steps out with a towel around his waist, despite being fully dressed otherwise. Marissa lets out a soft chuckle at this display as Mickey looks around with an eyebrow raised.
Mickey: Marissa… so nice of ye to interrupt me open invitational Shower Hour. All the best people are here, so long as they meet the requirements for entry.
Marissa: That’s… something. I was wondering if you could spare a moment for a few words with me?
Mickey: Wouldn’t’ve requested ye here if I couldn’t.
Marissa nods her head as Mickey flings the towel over one shoulder, revealing the Honor Championship around his waist. He turns around to show off a piece of paper taped to his back, with a big red bullseye drawn on it. As he turns back around his begins to shake his head.
Marissa: I guess you know exactly what I’m about to ask, don’t you, Mickey? Just a few short days ago…
Mickey: It wasn’t even one week ago that I was asking ye lot to come after me. To grow some balls and prove that yer worthy of coming anywhere near this title belt. Then, Alex Jones ‘appened.
Marissa: And he answered your challenge.
Mickey looks at Marissa and chuckles for a bit, waiting for some sort of punchline or inkling that she was joking. When it doesn’t come, he simply shakes his head.
Mickey: Not even close. ‘E probably did the exact opposite of answer me challenge. ‘E proved that ‘e’s nothing more than a git. Couldn’t beat me fair and square the last two times we faced off, so ‘e’s trying the dirty approach. Warning everyone that they’d better fall in line, or ‘e’s gonna stomp us. Making an example of the Honor Champion. But really, all ‘e did was prove that ‘e’s not worthy of a third shot at this match. Who the bloody ‘ell does ‘e think ‘e is? Dax Beckett? Getting endless title opportunities for being a proper tw*t?
Marissa: You can’t say that on…
Mickey: My bad. I really should watch me gab when a lady is present. Dax Beckett ‘as ‘ad more shots at this title than pretty much anybody, and ‘e ‘asn’t done f**k all to earn it besides run around and jump people with the Bad Boys. And before ye mention that I was once a Bad Boy, I remember, and I was probably the biggest c**k of em all. Ye live and ye learn, luv. Out of any Bad Boy that’s ever been in this company, I’ve got the most clout to ‘ave gone for this title, and I proved it by winning it. If Alex’s knickers are all in a twist because ‘e thought ‘e was the best thing to ever hit this company… just because ‘e was here a century ago, and then beat Kevin Hunter? I don’t know what to tell ye. Ye wasn’t good enough to beat me, Alex. I proved it twice. The only way ye could hold a candle to me was to attack me after a title defense, catching me off guard. That doesn’t make ye a badass, mate. It makes ye a coward. It makes ye a right c**k. And I know a thing ‘er two about c**ks!
Marissa clears her throat. She raises her eyebrows at him, and he licks at his bottom lip.
Mickey: Point is, Alex is clearly trying to reinvent ‘imself, because ‘e’s grown boring amongst the fans. Eating popcorn and drinking soft drinks during a battle royal made ‘im realize just how irrelevant he’d become when no one even sawr him as enough of a threat to try to eliminate ‘im until I came in. Then ‘e got ‘is little feelings hurt because nobody missed ‘im after ‘e was eliminated. Instead of dusting ‘imself off and trying to go after the Legacy Championship against someone who ‘asn’t beaten hiiiii…. Oh, wait…
Mickey winks and clicks his teeth at the camera.
Mickey: Instead of trying to follow up on our cancelled ⅔ Falls Match, ‘e decides to attack me. I get it. It was a means to an end. But unfortunately, ye can change the clothes of a bitch, try to make a bitch look tougher, but the fact remains… yer still a bitch. And now everyone finally sees it, Alex, me’self included. Kind of appropriate title for this “Dog of War” if ye really think about it. And since no one else around ‘ere ‘as the fortitude to come after me, round three sounds like fun. Only this time, I’m gonna put ye down. This…
Mickey points to his title with authority.
Mickey: … isn’t going anywhere, mate. And this…
Mickey points to the side of his head, letting the image linger for a moment.
Mickey: … ‘asn’t forgotten. I’ll be seeing ye soon, Alex… ‘Ave a good evening, Marissa…
Mickey doesn’t even wait for Marissa to respond as he walks inside of the locker room and closes the door. Marissa sighs as she looks back at the camera before it fades elsewhere.
Dragon Slayers vs Shinjiro Yamamoto and Equinox
Brittany: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, standing at 5’10” and weighing in at 210 lb, he is “Hard Knox”… Sam Steele!!!
As the lights go out "One Finger and a Fist" by Drowning Pool hits over the speakers as Sam Steele stepped through the curtain and onto the stage, an intense stare in his eyes as he makes his way down to the ring, he slips in underneath the bottom rope and jumps up on the second turnbuckle taunting to the crowd.
Brittany: And his partner in The Dragon Slayers, from Davenport, Iowa, standing at 6’1” and weighing in at 199 lb, he is “The Prodigy”... Michael Shaw!!!
The lights dim down a bit as a spotlight hit's the stage as "Feel Invincible" by Skillet hits over the speakers, the letters "Prodigy of professional wrestling" floats across the screen as Michael Shaw steps through the curtain an arrogant smirk on his face as he made his way down the ramp and into the ring, making his way up the stairs he steps into the ring, leaning against the ropes screaming something out into the crowd.
Brittany: And their opponents! First from Tokyo, Japan… The Golden Dragon… Shinjiro Yamamoto!!!
As the slow guitar riffs begin gold lights begin to flash slowly throughout the dark arena. As the rifts grow so does the speed of the flashing as red flashed now joins the gold flashes. As the rifts reach a climax the flashes stop and a bright golden light shines at the top of the entrance way where we now see "The Golden Dragon" Shinjiro Yamamoto standing. He poses with his arms spread out wide to the sounds of cheers from the crowd. Shinjiro then makes his way down the isle slapping hands with the fans. Once he is at ring side he makes a standing jump and lands on the ring apron and then sprints to the corner where he climbs the turnbuckle and hits his pose again as the fans continue to cheer. He then hops into the ring and goes to each corner posing for the fans to the sounds of cheering.
Brittany: And his partner!!!
You gotta fight through the pain, to get to the top
You gotta push through it all, if it’s what you want
Screaming THIS IS a call to the dreamers
Dig a little deeper, make ‘em believers
As the stage, as well as the ringside area, slowly begins to fill up with white smoke as the crowd watches in anticipation. Suddenly, something began to rise out of the stage, as if rising from the depths of the mist itself. The fans began to erupt as Equinox hidden underneath the smoke begins to rise out of the smoke as you can see parts his face paint revealing itself hidden under his mask. His arms outstretched to the High Fliers as if drawing in their strength before stepping into battle.
"RISE" by I Prevail go out as it hits over the PA System as the Titan trons begins to play the video highlighting Equinox who would be competing into one of the tonight's many events.
The fog still thick and envious as if to cloud him from their vision as he makes his way out. As the beat gets faster, Equinox walk faster as his feet trot along to the beat as he is shown in his white Assassin's creed overcoat, his conjoined white and black mask hiding his face, black tank top, and his customized arm covers over each arm in hues of black, charcoal gray, red. His face hidden behind a wild mask of face paint. The fans cheering as the ring announcer announces Honor's own High Spot Superhero.
Brittany: From St. Louis, Missouri!!!! Weighing in at 235 Ibs....He is "The Human Highlight Reel" The Legacy Champion… "The High Spot Hero" Equinox!!!!!!!
Equinox slowly makes his way down the rows and rows of fans on his right side til he goes full square around to each of the fans. Then heads to greet the ones he missed, before turning around before heading full throttle into the ring sliding under the bottom rope feet first as his body flies at full speed. Smiling big and wide, He gets up quickly playing to the crowd. Proceeding up to each turnbuckle pointing out to the fans for they are why he is here tonight before climbing to the top turnbuckle and somersaulting off the top landing on his feet in the ring. Once finished he take off his overcoat as well as his mask and hands both of them to the Ref.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Jill: Equinox and Shinjiro talk it over for a moment before deciding that Equinox will start things off against Sam Steele. Michael Shaw steps to the outside as Equinox bobs from side to side, approaching the center of the ring.
Nick: Equinox goes for a kick, but Sam grabs his leg and swings him around. As Sam goes to wrap his arms around Equinox’s neck, Nox hits a jumping Stunner to Sam. He quickly rolls him over onto his back for the cover.
Jill: Sam quickly gets a shoulder up as Shinjiro and Michael start to step inside of the ring. After Sam kicks out, they both step back. Nox jumps off of the ropes, looking for a Moonsault, but Sam rolls backward and to his feet as Nox lands on his feet.
Nick: Sam then Clotheslines Nox to the ground. He then lifts Nox up to a standing position and brings him over into a Snap Underhook Suplex. He hooks the leg as he goes for his own pin.
Jill: Nox gets a shoulder up as Michael steps inside of the ring. Shinjiro meets him with a Dropkick. Nox gets Sam up onto his feet and then nails the Inverted Exploder Suplex. He stands up and signals going up top.
Nick: Shinjiro points at Equinox and nods his head as he backs up toward his partner. He climbs outside and continues to draw the cheers for Nox. He reaches up and pats him on the back as the referee calls for the tag.
Jill: Nox seems shocked by this, but Shinjiro quickly climbs inside. Without missing a beat, he rushes across the ring and nails Sam with a Shining Wizard. He quickly rolls Sam over onto his back and hooks the leg as Nox climbs down to the apron, shaking his head.
Nick: Michael dives on top of Sam and Shinjiro, breaking up the pin as the crowd cheers for the continuation of this match. Michael begins hammering away at Shinjiro as Nox stands there, holding the tag rope up, shrugging his shoulders.
Jill: I’m starting to sense a bit of animosity between these two, even if they are trying their best to hide it. Michael sends Shinjiro into the ropes, trying to follow after him. Shinjiro hops over the top rope and onto the apron.
Nick: As Michael approaches, Shinjiro maneuvers his body and tangles it around Shaw’s, getting him locked in with the Chained Fury!
Jill: Shaw isn’t even the legal man, but he’s still feeling the pain. The referee warns Shinjiro twice before starting his count.
Nick: Sam charges in and clubs the back of Shinjiro’s head a few times until he breaks the hold. Shaw rolls out of it and holds onto his back as he stumbles around. He and Sam begin to hammer away at Shinjiro before lifting him up into a Double Vertical Suplex.
Jill: Equinox jumps inside of the ring. He darts over to the action, and just as they are about to drop Shinjiro, Equinox catches his partner and flips him over. Shinjiro lands on the apron as Equinox helps to lift both Dragon Slayers up into the air.
Nick: Shinjiro does his part to bring them over into a Double Vertical Suplex of their own. The Dragon Slayers topple to the outside, their backs smacking the arena floor with a loud double thud!
Crowd: This is awesome! *Clap* This is awesome! *Clap* This is awesome! *Clap*
Jill: Shinjiro breathes heavily as he and Nox take a moment to celebrate this maneuver. Shinjiro steps inside of the ring as he and Nox begin talking lightly amongst themselves. It doesn’t seem to be very friendly.
Nick: After a moment, the Dragon Slayers begin to rise to their feet, still dazed. As they turn around, Shinjiro and Nox bounce off of the ropes, flying over the top rope with stereo Flying Planchas!
Crowd: Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit!
Jill: What they said! That didn’t seem like it really helped them as much as it hurt them. All four men are piled up on the outside. The crowd is getting behind Shinjiro and Equinox. After what seems like minutes later, the four men begin to rise up.
Nick: Shaw and Steele go for Haymakers, but Nox and Shinjiro deflect them, and hit uppercut jabs, sending the Slayers reeling backward.
Jill: They try to rebound with punches of their own, but Nox and Shinjiro duck under them, and they grab hold of their opponents. Despite their differences, they are on the same page as they send their opponents crashing into each other head first!
Nick: Before the Slayers fall to the ground, Nox and Shinjiro roll their opponents inside. Shinjiro smirks at Nox, who nods his head as he climbs onto the top rope. Shinjiro hits his ironically named finisher, The Dragon Slayer (Dragon Suplex, floating over into a Camel Clutch)!
Jill: Nox flies off, nailing Michael Shaw with the Dark Kingdom (Swanton Bomb) as Sam is out cold in Shinjiro’s grip. The referee raises his arm once, then twice. After the third time, the referee calls for the bell as the crowd erupts into madness of cheers.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Brittany: Here are your winners… Shinjiro Yamamoto and Equinox!!!
The crowd is roaring with approval as Shinjiro lets go of Sam Steele. Equinox joins Shinjiro and raises his arm together as the referee joins them. “My Spirit Will Go On” by Dragonforce begins playing over the speakers. Equinox and Shinjiro look over at each other, glaring almost before the referee departs. They slowly approach one another, nearly getting nose to nose with one another. They mutter to each other, and it seems even less pleasant than before. The crowd is on fire with excitement as Shinjiro raises his hand! … to shake. Nox reluctantly takes it, and the two men shake hands.
The lights go out, the Honortorn lights up with pyro going off around it. The lights turn on on a dim as the Honortorn turns on. We see a sign appear that reads.

Shinjiro and Equinox jump off the turnbuckles and have a stare down as the camera cut backstage to Diego and the Pride Tag Team Champions, The Three Way.
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: So how are feeling after your win on Showdown.
Dahlia: Didn’t I tell you what was going to happen, not to sound like a broken record but I told you that Tatsu Ikeda had no chance of beating me and it looks like I was right as usual.
Diego: As a result of your win, The pride tag team title won’t be defended tonight, but you have the opportunity to add the Hardcore tag titles.
Earl: Hardcore title hardcore rules, now I’m sure Winter and Tatsu can swing a weapon quite well, the difference is this, when I swing a weapon it hurts a hell of a lot more than Winter and Tatsu when my wife swings a weapon, well you get the point.
Dahlia: I’m actually looking forward to this match, Diego, I get to hurt people, and believe me a whole lot of hurt is coming to the Kawaii Dragons tonight, this is one fight they’re not going to survive, and after they carry Winter and Tatsu out of the arena in ambulance, the Hardcore Tag titles will be leaving with the most dominant tag team Honor wrestling has ever had, The Three-Way.
Sarah: My job is just so easy, I make the strategies and Earl and Dahlia impose them at will on their opponents, tonight's strategy had only four words, Destroy The Kawaii Dragons, and I have no doubt that’s exactly what going to happen.
Earl: Next time you see us Diego we’ll be carrying some extra gold.
The Three-Way walk out of the interview area.
Diego: You heard it from here first, we are looking at new Hardcore Tag Team Champions. As they head to ringside we have Kevin Whitfeld with the Hardcore Tag Team Champions, The Kawaii Dragons.
We see Honor reporter Kevin Whitfield with Tatsu Ikeda and Winter Elemental.
Kevin: This Diego, I’m here with the Hardcore Tag Team Champions, The Kawaii Dragons. You just heard the Three Way talking to Diego. Anything you wish to say about that?
Tatsu: Yes, we want to thank the Three Way for allowing everyone to take poop break during their interview.
Winter: It really doesn’t matter…
We can hear Brittany letting the fans in the arena know that the Main Event is about to start. The Three Way walk right past the Kawaii Dragons. Winter takes exception to this.
Winter: Excuse me assholes, you see were in the middle of an interview.
Sarah: You should just be kissing those titles goodbye.
Tatsu starts laughing.
Sarah: Go ahead and laugh now, you were crying a few days ago and will be crying in a few minutes after Dahlia is done with you again this week.
Mercedes and Delia enter the scene.
Delia: A problem?
Sarah: For your teenagers, yes, they’ll have one in a few minutes. Our music is about to play, we're not going to waste any more time.
