Post by Shaun Hart on Apr 10, 2023 20:40:05 GMT
As things get ready to kick off on Mayhem, we find Michael Morrison backstage with Aiden Cain, who stands proudly with his briefcase from the Keys 2 Success match and an absolutely beaming smile
Michael: Ladies and Gentlemen, I am backstage with Aiden Cain coming off his victory in the Keys 2 Success match. Aiden, you’ve had a tremendous run since you joined IIW, and now you have one of the keys in your hand. How are you feeling?
Aiden: Thanks Michael, it's been really incredible. That was a brutal match and while we didn't have the full turnout we expected, the four of us went out and we all gave our best. I am incredibly proud to have been able to capture this opportunity.
Michael: So with that in your possession now, where do you turn your sights to?
Aiden: That's difficult to answer now. There were two briefcases up for grabs, and I didnt get the first one. Because of that, I’ll have to wait and bide my time until Maverick…
As if on cue, Maverick Tatum walks up to the two, for when you lived in the world that Maverick did, even a small amount of success was something to beam about. He had been discussing the small things on his social media but now he thought it was time to discuss the big things, however before he could get to that, he did have to address Mr. Cain, as he did extend his hand out before turning his eyes towards Michael.
Maverick: Yes, yes, AIDEN CAIN! You know what, I’m glad that it ended up being you and I, because there is no me without you and no you without me and I mean it’s been a whirlwind right? People want to know what you are thinking, when you might do something with the key, and all of it. I swear it’s like somebody wants you but more importantly me to be somebody. Also look at Michael here, he’s lucky, not everyone gets to interview Maverick and Aiden. I mean it’s like he’s surrounded by success literally and doesn’t know what to say.
Aiden pauses and looks at Maverick a moment, his eyes narrowing slightly with confusion.
Aiden: Maverick…Good to see you and congratulations to you. I didn't get a chance to see you after the match. However, I believe Michael was doing just fine this time around, and we had this whole thing well under control.
Michael: Actually, this works out great in my favor. Obviously, Aiden, you won't be able to cash in your shot until Maverick does, so this gives us a chance to hear directly from him. Maverick, what are your plans going forward now that you have the first of the two briefcases?
Aiden looks back at Michael for a moment, a bit incredulous. He then looks back to Maverick.
Aiden: Yeah. Great question. What ARE your plans, exactly?
Maverick honestly, well the truth was that he was stumped but he spoke, for one would never actually know that he never planned anything in his life.
Maverick: One second Michael and Aiden,
He said as he pulled out his phone.
Maverick: I get that we are live but I never miss a chance to show my fans, my followers even what I am up to,
He said as he went “live” on his phone.
He said as the numbers of followers began to go up and he turned the phone so that it could focus on him and Aiden with just a short glimpse of Michael as well and he spoke.
Maverick: I’m live with Aiden Cain, take it in because I am not sure if he even knows what social media is or even makes use of it like I do but here we are and people want to know my plans, well..
Aiden: *muttering* Really?...Are…Are you seriously trying to use me as clickbait?
He paused and handed his phone to Aiden a second.
Maverick: What do you want Aiden and no, clickbait I would never, You are almost as famous as me the people want to know what it is that you feel Intense International Wrestling should expect from you? I mean it’s only really a side benefit that my followers get a first look into it as well. We’re in the same world now, I’m the big spoon, you’re the little spoon, it’s not a contest, we’re a partnership, where of course all proceeds go to IIWMT. Org, my personal foundation that loves to give back. Don’t you understand that?
At this point Michael looks to Aiden, cautiously. Aiden clears his throat a bit and tries to regain his composure and continue.
Aiden: Look, Social media and…spoons…aside, Maverick and myself have both earned ourselves tremendous opportunities with these briefcases. That said…
He pauses and glances back and forth between Michael and Maverick for a moment before continuing, clearly becoming flustered
Aiden: Look, I’ll cut to the chase cause I have no idea whats going on here. I cant really plan or do anything until you cash in, Maverick. So I cant say what Im going to do, because a lot of that, for better or worse, relies almost entirely on what YOU end up doing. Thats the rules. You got the first one. So you cash in first.
Aiden looks at Maverick, then at Michael, then back at Maverick expectantly.
Aiden: So, since you jumped in here…on with it
Aiden gestures with his hand to move things along. Maverick takes a second and blinks as he takes his phone back and kills the feed.
Maverick: That is one hell of a loophole but fine. It honestly hurts me to admit that approximately around four months from now because I can not rush it, so July, if things stay as the champions are now the world will get to witness Maverick Tatum versus J-Mont. The thoughts of it make me want to gag but it is sadly the feud that the people do not realize that they want to see. So in that time you should decide what feud it is that the people want to see from you. They will not deserve it, but they will see it. I also think that you need a bolster of confidence, you see Aiden you are in your Aiden Cain Era, even if you become so flustered that you can not grab it by the horns and take control.
It seemed almost like a line of dishonesty but it was perhaps the most honest thing ever to come out of Maverick’s mouth.
Maverick: You are the face of an Era, that spells ACE all on it’s on. Aces are wild, Aces are always the best in the deck and if you know what is good for you and putting your name in the new slab of foundation for I.I.W. that I, as a member of #2ndComing will usher in now that I am too a Keys to Success winner, the time is now and that is all I have to say about everything that happened as far as Keys to Success went.
Aiden blinks a few times, staring at Maverick as he falls silent again. His jaw clenches with something akin to irritation, but he swallows it down.
Aiden: I dont understand half of what you just said…
He looks back at Michael
Aiden: What I do understand, is that it seems I have plenty of time to sit back and plan. Maverick did confirm what I already suspected thought, in that his sights are set for the World Title. I would expect no less. With that in mind, I’ll be keeping my eyes on the Intercontinental Title situation over the coming…months…with great interest. New era or not, I dont plan on wasting this shot.
(Two of IIWs best take part in the first round of the The IIW International Tournament, both are determined and motivated to move past the other and make it to the next round but with only room for one which own of these stars will do what it takes to make it through?)
Round One of The IIW International Tournament
Standard Singles Match
Curtis vs Kasey Vex
"Faith" by Limp Bizkit as Curtis steps out onto the ramp wearing a red and white hoody that says #1 Son on the back of it.
Alice Goldier: I give you Curtis!!!!
Curtis raises his arms as fireworks shoot up from the ramp, before heading to the ring, as he dives under the bottom ropes, into the ring and poses to the mixed reaction of the crowd.
The lights in the arena switch to a neon glow of blue and pink as “Night On Fire” hits the speakers and a dark figure takes the entrance stage. At the first bass drop, a red kitsune mask lights up on the figure as it slowly looks around to stare out at the crowd. Soon, a lone spotlight shines down as the mask is pulled off to reveal Kasey Vex with a mischievous smirk gracing her face. The crowd cheers wildly for her as she heads down the entrance ramp, reaching out to slap some outstretched hands as she goes along. She stops in front of the ring and takes one last look around the screaming crowd, smirking again before she runs around the side and jumps up onto the apron and slides along on her knees. She kips up to her feet and jumps to the second rope on the outside of the ring, balancing one foot on the top turnbuckle.
Alice Goldier: Making her way to the ring, from Night City, she weighs in at 120lbs, I give you KASEY VEX!!!!!!!!
The crowd’s cheers increase at her athletic display and she grins out to them again before she launches herself over the top rope and lands in a crouch in the ring. She straightens up and paces around the ring a little as she sheds her ring jacket and places it along with the kitsune mask to the side of the ring as she hops in place and shakes out her limbs in anticipation of the upcoming match.
Circling around one another, Kasey and Curtis each attempt to gain a foothold over the other at the start of this match, though neither of them wish to lock up with the other. Their eyes locked in on the other, it is Kasey who makes the first move, managing to catch Curtis off guard with a double leg takedown, followed by hammering in punches to his face as he attempts to guard himself against them. He eventually manages to push her off, only to be met with a dropkick when he rises, keeping him right on the mat and in position for Kasey to connect with an elbow drop right to his stomach.
Mike: Kasey is unrelenting to start this one. She knows what is at stake and with the size difference, realises this is the only way she can wrestle her style.
Scott: It's smart. Keep the bigger man grounded and don't let him into the match.
Another one follows before she lifts him to his feet and attempts to connect with a combination of kicks, though only manages two in total before a clothesline takes her to the mat, followed by stomps raining down on her as Curtis attempts to gain control of the match. Lifting her up, he hoists her into the air and connects with a suplex before standing and hitting a kick to her stomach when she stands and charges at him, looking for a powerbomb.
Mike: So much for not letting Curtis into the match.
He elevates her into the air, only for her to use the momentum to carry them forward and ensure that it is her that lands on top of him. Standing, she starts to pump herself up before bouncing off the ropes and connecting with a basement dropkick upon her return, causing Curtis to suffer a whiplash effect as he connects with the canvas. Not wanting to cede momentum, Kasey goes for a standing moonsault but only manages to connect with Curtis's knees, causing her to grab her ribs and roll off and buying him at least some time to rise.
Scott: Curtis showing great ring awareness there. He knows he can't afford to allow Kasey to maintain control if he wants to have any chance of winning.
Mike: No shit he knows that. Everybody does.
Scotr: I'm just saying.
Time that he uses to connect with a kick to the stomach again, only this time, he elects to forego the powerbomb and just plant her on the mat with a DDT. Smiling, he makes his way to his feet, pulling Kasey up with him, only to reel her in and drop her to the mat once more, this time with an overhead belly to belly suplex. Following up with a running knee strike once Kasey stands, knowing he can't give her any breathing room or windows to strike in. Flexing his power advantage, he deadlifts her into the air from the mat, holding her there for about 10 seconds before dropping her with a powerslam, attempting a pin after but only managing to get a 1 count.
Mike: Way too early to be thinking about a pin.
Feeling pain begin to rise within her, Kasey manages to push herself up, though another jolt of pain follows when Curtis, who had stood up following the attempted pin, connects with a stiff discus backfist to her, then a belly to back suplex before she is even able to hit the mat. Looking at the crowd and getting himself motivated, Curtis hits a Judo toss on Kasey, then an elbow drop before going for another pin. This one also only resulting in a 1 count--- though about 3/8ths closer to 2 than the previous one had been.
Scott: Curtis fully in control now, it appears. Kasey still showing she's a fighter and not planning on going down quietly.
Mike: Well, with what's at stake, I can't say I'm all that surprised.
A small hint of frustration begins to appear on Curtis after this, allowing Kasey to roll free, rise and then hit an elbow strike to the back of his head while he is still seated, causing another whiplash effect to occur. A sharp dropkick to the back follows before Kasey measures her steps and connects with a running neck snap. Pulling him to his feet, she keeps a hold on him, looking out to the cheering fans as she wrenches his arm and connects with a kick, then manages to hit the combination that she had attempted previously.
Staggering but still on his feet, Curtis swings with a punch, only to miss wildly as Kasey connects with an enzugiri, causing Curtis to flop to the mat. A standing moonsault follows, as she goes for a pin, managing to get a 2 count before Curtis gets the shoulder up.
Mike: Curtis still in this, but he has to be running out of stamina at this point.
Scott: You'd think so. Kasey's on him like white on rice.
Smiling, Kasey connects with a basement dropkick when Curtis sits back up. She then lifts him up and gives a kick to the gut and hits a DDT in the middle of the ring and then climbs up to the top turnbuckle as the fans get behind her with a loud chant. Once she reaches to the top she gets the fans excited and then points down to Curtis before launching and hitting a Double Corkscrew Moonsault right on top of Curtis and immediately hooks both leg as the referee gets in position.
Alice Goldier: Here is your winner by pinfall and advancing to the next round of the IIW International Tournament Kasey Vex!!!!
Mike Fisher: Kasey Vex just knocked off a former Tag team Champion and kept her chances alive of becoming the first-ever woman to hold the International Championship.
Scott James: Definitely a pick winn for this competitor and keeps her story towards the International Championship alive.
Kasey celebrated in the ring as the referee raises her hand.
Carry on my wayward son by Kansas starts to play. The crowd is on their feet. It’s new music and they know that means there is a new wrestler about to make their first appearance.
Scott James: Man I love this song.
Mike Fisher: It’s an absolute dad rock classic. I wonder if this new guy can live up to the hype?
Scott James: That remains to be seen but at least for now we can rock out!
Matt “Cash Money” Shepard walks out on stage. He has his head down with a black towel obscuring his features even further. Slowly, Matt starts making his way to the ring. He doesn’t look up or interact with the fans. He is a man on a mission.
Scott James: What do you make of that, Mike? Shepard doesn’t seem interested in the fans at all.
Mike Fisher: He must have something important on his mind.
When Matt Shepard reaches the ring, he rolls beneath the bottom rope. The crowd gets their first look at him as he moves to the far right corner and gestures for a microphone. He’s bald and sports an obnoxious handlebar mustache.
Scott James: Well that's a face only a mother could love.
Mat stands in the corner slowly eyeing up the crowd, A solid minute passes before he raises the microphone to speak. When he does, Matt’s voice is low, almost a whisper but still crisp and clear.
Matt: Five years I’ve been at this. Not as long as some, but on the latter side of a decade. Five years of hard work. Five years of running up and down the road. Five years of putting my body on the line to entertain. Five years of nights away from my bed. Five years of blood, sweat, and tears with nothing of note to show for it. No championships, no accolades, nothing but… tHe LoVe AnD aDmIrAtIoN oF tHe FaNs.”
The audience is slow to react; it takes just a moment for them to realize that Matt is mocking them. The crowd starts to boo.
Mike Fisher: Jeez, what a jerk. Doesn’t he know it’s the fans that make this all happen?
Scott James: The sun must have cooked his brain through that bald head of his.
Matt: I want to make it clear, I’m tired of this song and dance. I’m tired of pretending that I give a shit what you people think of me. I don’t want your love. I don’t want your praise. All I want is what’s due to me. I want my cut. I want my fair share. Every time I have to parade myself out here and pander to y’all, I feel dirty. I have to go home afterward and scrub my body until it bleeds. Every time one of your little cum stains walks up to me in a parking lot and asks me to sign some piece of hit trinket, it takes every fiber of strength in my being not to tell them to go fuck themselves.
Scott James: He can’t say that on T.V. Security!
Mike Fisher: Calm down Scott, it's 2023 and this is America.
Matt: There is nothing worse than debasing myself just to squeeze a few more dollars out of you at the merch stand. I’m over it. I’m done. You can take your shirts, photos, and whatever else and cram them up your asses. I ain’t never gonna sign another goddamn thing for any of you ever again. I don’t care if you beg. I don’t care if you plead. I don’t care if your little cum stains are dying of cancer and their one dream is for me to sign a get-well card. To hell with you and to hell with them kids.
Now the crowd is on their feet. They’re not just booing but throwing empty bottles and trash at the ring.
Mike Fisher: You know what, Scott? I’m with you on this. Matt needs to shut up before these people string him up the nearest tree.
Matt: That sentiment goes double for y’all in the back. I ain’t here to make friends. I don’t want to hear about your road stories. I don’t want to see pictures of your kids or hear about your marital problems. I ain’t your pal. I’m your enemy. I’m here for two reasons and two reasons only. To get mine and to make y’all suffer – that’s it.”
I’ll be blunt. If you’ve got a gold belt around your waist, I’m coming for you. If there’s money to be made in a match, I'm fighting it. I don’t care what Shaun Hart thinks. I don’t care what J Mont wants. My give-a-shit level is at an all-time low. Either by hook or by crook, I’m coming to take what I feel I’m owed.
For the last five years, I’ve put the fans and business first. No more. I’m going into business for myself. The only thing that matters to me now is CASH MONEY!
Matt rolls out of the ring and heads for the back. This time he interacts with the fans, cursing at them, threatening to beat them up, and generally causing a scene.
Scott James: Well there you have it ladies and gentlemen, Matt Shepard. I don’t think he is going to be getting invited to the office potluck anytime soon.
Mike Fisher: Hell, he’ll be lucky if someone hasn’t already slashed his tires.
( Former Tag Team Champion Rhett Dawson enters the hunt for more Gold as he enters The IIW International Tournament hoping to win the whole thing and become a Champion again but new Mayhem star Terry Walker looks to make an impact by not only winning his debut match but by advancing to the next round with a win over a former Champion. Who will move on to the next round when it's all said and done?)
Round One of The IIW International Tournament
Standard Singles Match
Rhett Dawson vs Terry Walker
The lights in the arena dim as smoke is released at the top of the entrance ramp. The lights all tint blue and the song "Natural" by Imagine Dragons begin to fill the arena. The fans react with a loud chorus of boos, some even tossing trash at the entrance as the song begins.
Will you hold the line
When every one of them has given up and given in? Tell me
In this house of mine
Nothing ever comes without a consequence or cost, tell me
Will the stars align?
Will heaven step in? Will it save us from our sin, will it?
'Cause this house of mine stands strong
Alice Goldier: I give you Rhett Dawson!!!
After the first 30 seconds or so of the song plays we finally see the tag team of Rhett Dawson and Sawyer Wade, collectively known as ATG, exit from the back. Both men are wearing sleeveless trench coats made of leather, buttoned up tightly in the front with a hood attached. Both men have their hood up covering their face in the shadow. Once at the top of the entrance ramp they pause looking back and fourth waiting for the song to pick up a bit.
That's the price you pay
Leave behind your heart and cast away
Just another product of today
Rather be the hunter than the prey
That takes about another 10 or so seconds and once it does the duo remove there hoods and shout a bit. Nothing that can really be heard or understood. Sawyer points directly at the camera and does a cut throat taunt, meanwhile his partner Rhett turns his back to the Camera and exposes the design on the back that says "ATG" in big letters and under it Against the Grain. Sawyer then takes the moment to point to each letter of the logo (ATG) and then Rhett turns and the duo give each other an elbow bump before they begin to stroll towards the ring.
And you're standing on the edge face up
'Cause you're a natural
A beating heart of stone
You gotta be so cold
To make it in this world
Yeah, you're a natural
Living your life cutthroat
You gotta be so cold
Yeah, you're a natural
As they stroll down the ramp they take a moment to taunt fans along the way. Insulting them and ripping up signs. Once next to the ring they stand next to each other and in unison jump on the apron as they do Pyro fires off of each turnbuckle. The two then enter the ring going to seperate corners standing on the middle turn buckle and continuing bickering with the fans while they raise their arms in the air.
Let me see the light within the dark trees shadowing?
Looking through the glass find the wrong within the past knowing
Oh, we are the youth
Cut until it bleeds inside a world without the peace, face it
A bit of the truth, the truth
The lights then return to normal as the two then hop down from the turnbuckle and head to their corner preparing for their upcoming match.
Wherever I May Roam" by Metallica scorches the audio system. The crowd grows into a frenzy while the chords play until the high pitched vocals begin to hit and the sound of a revving engine is heard.
Alice Goldier: : I give you Terry Walker!!!!
A Harley comes flying down the entrance way while the song plays. Terry "Nomad" Walker is at the helm of the iron horse. The bike whips around the ring with the smell of gasoline fumes burning the nostrils of the fans closest to The Nomad. Terry parks the Harley facing the entrance way. He dismounts and turns his full attention to the ring.
Two men looking to prove themselves start things off with a bang. Both looking to become the next IIW International Champion and are looking to ensure their names are not forgotten. It seems like Terry is going for a test of strength, but as soon as Rhett goes to meet his hand, Terry drives his boot into his midsection. Rhett groans in pain and Terry drops down onto his back to deliver a wicked slap to the face of his opponent who is doubled over in pain.
Scott James: A disrespectful slap from the newcomer Terry Walker.
Mike Fisher: Showing no love to one half of their former tag team Champions.
He swiftly gets back to his feet, smirking softly as he does a little shoulder shimmy and Rhett clenches his jaw as he rubs at where he was smacked. Rhett nods a bit, shaking his limbs out a bit as both men circle one another this time. Rhett not taking his eyes off of the ball as he immediately meets Terry in the center of the ring. The two exchange blows and the crowd is loving it! Rhett sends Terry into the ropes, dropping down into a brief leapfrog game before Rhett stops Terryin his tracks with a Roundhouse Kick to the chest! Terry drops to the canvas and Rhett continues his attack. He lifts Terry up into position and drops him with a Sheer Drop Brainbuster! Terry is left seeing stars as he drops to the canvas. Rhett immediately goes for the cover and the referee is dropped down for the count.
Mike Fisher: Rhett has become more aggressive and surgical with his attacks but still lot enough damage done for the three count.
Terry manages to get the shoulder up as he shakes his head, gritting his teeth in frustration. Terry immediately delivers a strike to the jaw of Rhett, who meets him with a strike of his own. The two trading forearm strikes in the center of the ring with each one becoming more stiff than the next. Terry takes the upperhand, getting back to his feet as Rhett slows a bit. Terry takes some distance away, charging forward to deliver a Pump Kick right to the face of Rhett!
Mike Fisher: Terry just tried to do restructure the face of Rhett just then.
Nathan is left bleeding a bit from the mouth as Ace merely smirks at his opposition. He motions with two fingers for Nathan to make the next move as the other spits out some blood onto the canvas. The referee having to put some gloves on before the two are at it again. It’s clear that they’ve got nothing to lose, but everything to gain here tonight.
Terry and Rhett charge forward, stopping in the center of the ring where Rhett meets Terry with a wicked Desperation Headbutt! Terry staggers, but Rhett repeats the move two more times before he starts delivering Clinch Knee Strikes to the midsection of Terry. Terry is left trying to struggle to collect oxygen into his lungs, but Rhett merely looks to add insult to injury in his own stead as he picks Terry up looking for redemption of his own here tonight. He charges towards the nearest turnbuckle and hits a Turnbuckle Powerbomb into a Running Sitout Powerbomb!
Scott James: Insane move by Rhett.
Mike Fisher: Just folded Terry up like a prezel.
Rhett drops down with Terry, pinning his legs back in order to attempt another pin here of his own as the referee begins the count.
Mike Fisher: I thought Rhett had that one.
Terry kicks out and rolls back to his feet in a backwards motion. Terry charges towards him, but Rhett ducks under his arm before taking him off of his feet with a Tornado DDT! Rhett is back to his feet a moment later, immediately back on the attack as he lifts Terry up and drops him with the Tripleta! Belly To Back Suplex right into a German Suplex and then ends it with a Brainbuster! Terry is reeling in return and Rhett is all fired up as he slaps his fist to his own chest a few times and has his sights set upon Terry. Terry Shakes the cobwebs and charges towards Rhett , but it’s all calculated and on the rebound Rhett catches him for-
Terry meets the canvas back first and Rhett immediately folds him up for a pin, hooking both legs as he rolls back in order to trap Terrys legs and prevent him from kicking out.
Alice Goldier: Here is your winner by pinfall and moving on to the next round of the IIW International Tournament, Rhett Dawson!!!!
The referee raises the hand of Rhett Dawson as the fans chant his name to celebrate.
( Former IIW Tag Team Champion Thaddeus Duke return to IIW with one goal in mind and that's to become a Champion again but this time his eyes are on the IIW International Championship but first he must go through a tournament full of top competitors
Round One of The IIW International Tournament
Standard Singles Match
Goth vs Thaddeus Duke
The house lights fall dark with a loud audible snap. The stage and the ring remain lit in a dim gold-colored lightin
The announcers lay out as the countdown begins to play. The countdown transitions to 'Medal' as the crowd roars.
Thad enters the stage with his hood up. Standing on stage, Thad gives a messiah-like pose as a triple pyro shot from the top of theTron shoots toward the ring. When it bursts, it reveals a sparkling golden image of a roaring lion above the ring, bringing cheers from the crowd.
After the pyro bursts, Thad in his custom white leather Lionheart jacket, throws his hood off as he begins down the ramp. At the bottom, he slaps a few hands before climbing the ring steps. At the top of the steps he pauses, looking over his shoulder toward the cheering crowd with his sweet smile.
Alice Goldier: From New York City, I give you The Lionheart Thaddeus Duke!!!!
Stepping to the apron, he slingshots himself over the top and into the ring before traveling to all four corners, climbing to the middle rope and sending out the ‘I Love You’ hand sign to the Universe.
Justin: About to enter the arena being accompanied by Kat Jones, standing in at 6’4 and weighing in at 239 pounds!!!
The words fade as we hear the Church bells cling before the guitar riff starts playing along with the choir singing. The music builds up to where finally Corey Taylor can be heard. The name Goth emerges upon the titan tron, but the man only walks out after Corey Taylor can be heard screaming the words: “I’m finally holding on to letting go!!” As explosions go off on the side of the entrance stage. Goth stares at the crowd as CCPE CEO Kat Jones emerges behind him.
Justin: Currently residing from Manhattan, New York!!! He is the King of Kings!! Goth!!!!
Goth lifts his head upwards to the ceiling while extending his arms, a smirk emerges upon his face as he listens to the mixed reactions. After a few seconds he looks back ahead of him towards the ring walking slowly, totally ignoring the fans who are trying to touch him as he walks to the steel ringsteps. He gets on the ring apron, Kat Jones walks towards his corner as he focusses on his match. He then steps in the ring and stares down his opponent/awaits his opponent as his music slowly fades.
Thaddeus Duke and Goth meet in the center of the ring. The two circle each other briefly before Thad steps into him with a top end snap kick, only to have Goth avoid. But Thad puts the breaks on the kick the moment he moves to avoid in, drops it back down, steps forward and lands a hard slap across the face.
Mike Fisher: The first meeting of these two should be an absolute barn burner, as their respective styles mesh so well against each other, as we just saw. Thad is all offense and Goth has mastered defensive strategy. He'll have to be cautious though, as Thad is smart enough to play into that style.
Scott James: Easy There Mike!
Mike Fisher: So I guess providing analysis is the wrong way to do this job. My bad then.
Thad look at Goth then, mocking his trademark growl before going low and bringing him down to the mat with a two legged takedown and locking him into a side headlock. He pulls back hard, but he rolls through bringing both of them back to their feet. Goth lifts him off his feet looking for a back body drop, but Thad flips back and lands on his feet. Goth spins around only to take a hook kick to the face that knocks him through the ropes and sends him down to the floor. Thad looks down on him briefly before running into the corner, hoping up to the top rope and flying off with a front flip senton attack that knocks them both down to the floor.
Thad gets back to his feet and gives Goth a kick to the ribs before, lifting him back to his feet and rolling him back into the ring. Thad follows him in and stomps him in the stomach forcing him back to his feet. Thad positions his self, and the moment he turns around he moves forward with his superkick. Goth is able to move downward and bring Thad down to the mat with an exploder suplex.
Mike Fisher: Thad was looking to end it early there, but Goth shows just how good he is as a counter wrestler.
Scott James: Of course he is, no one can get a hold of him!
Goth gets to his feet and grins wide before lifting Thad back to his feet and hitting his with a pair of forearm smashes that knocks him into the ropes. Goth takes him by the arm and whips him across the ring into the opposite ropes. When Thad rebounds back into the ring where Goth is, he catches him into a sleeper hold. Thad flails around before being able to shove him off. He runs into the ropes and rebounds back, knocking him back with a running shuffle kick, before rushing him again and bringing him down with a clothesline.
Mike Fisher: Goth has taken control of this match. That one counter was all he needed.
Scott James: It's like I told you, he can't touch him.
Goth drops an elbow on him twice before lifting Thad back up to his feet and slamming him into the corner turnbuckle. With him facing him again he wraps his arm around the top rope and pulls back hard in a rope assisted arm bar. Thad strikes out in pain, but Goth grabs his free arm and wraps it around the other rope and pulls both back. Referee then warns Goth and begins counting, forcing Goth to release the hold at the count of four.
Mike Fisher: The ref was doing his job as he breaks up the hold, and...
Scott James: Disgraceful!
Mike Fisher: It was an illegal hold!
Goth moves back in on Thad, only to have him raise his feet and catch him around the legs and twist him over the top rope and sending him down to the floor, before rolling back into the ring herself.
Goth slowly gets back to his feet on the floor as Thad gets back up to hers in the ring. Before The Ref can begins his count, Goth quickly gets back into the ring. Thad gives him a pair of slaps before giving him a hard kick to the thigh the knocks him back into the ropes. Thad goes for a spinning heel kick that Goth ducks under and runs into the opposite ropes. Goth rushes Thad, and runs right into a spinning back kick to the stomach that doubles him over. Thad rushes into the adjacent ropes and connects with a rushing front drop kick to the side of Goth's head.
Thad stands back up to the side of him and gets in position. Goth starts to stir after a moment and slowly rolls up to a kneeling position and gets back to his feet. Thad explodes forward again, looking for the superkick, but Goth is able to counter again, this time by catching his foot. Goth kicks his planted leg out from under him, knocking him onto her back with his hands still on her other foot. Goth then flips him over onto her chest and drops down, driving his knee into the mat and locking him into the The Gothic Dream
Mike Fisher: The Gothic Dream! He's got that locked in!
Scott James: Yes! Yes! Yes! You are brilliant Goth!
Thad struggles with the hold but refuses to tap to it. He slowly crawls over to the ropes and gets within a couple of inches from it, before Goth slowly drags him back into the center. Goth again drives his knee down into the mat and locks in the hold. Finally, Thad is able to get his free leg underneath him and twist and turn his body around, before pulling in with both legs and shoving Goth off of him.
Mike Fisher: Thad is free! He broke the hold!
Thad slowly gets back to his feet, but Goth is able to grab him from behind, hook him up and bring him back down to the mat with a pump handle slam. Goth stomps on him many times over, walking around him as he lays in one after another to different parts of her body. Finally, he lifts him back to his feet and tosses him into the turnbuckle. He lays in body blow after body blow until he's knocked down into the corner. Goth grabs Thad by the throat and starts strangling. The Ref stands over them and begins the count, forcing Goth to release the choke the moment before he gets disqualified.
Scott James: Ugh! AGAIN BIASED!
Mike Fisher: When has choking ever been legal?!
Goth drags Thad back to his feet and away from the turnbuckle. He twists and turns him around and gets him into a three quarters facelock, looking to connect with his cutter. The moment before he drops however, Thad shoves him forward into the turnbuckle and connects into the side of his face with a roundhouse kick that knocks him down to the mat.
Scott James: No! Damn it! No!
Mike Fisher: What a reversal by Thad!
Prowling in the corner Thad is waiting as Goth is slowly getting to his feet….HEAT SEEKER!
Scott James: NO LEG SLAP NEEDED!
Thad pins the crumpled Goth as we see the
Mike Fisher: Thaddeus Duke has progressed, what a finish to a thrilling match!
Scott James: Thaddeus Duke picks up from where he last ended here in IIW but make no mistake about it he had toe arm this win because Goth gave him more than can't handle.
We return to commercial break with a heated Team Olympus standing in the ring, each with a microphone in their hands.
Zeus: We are tired of being overlooked in the tag team division. For months now we have been underappreciated by management, they can call on us when they need someone to go up against their favorites but when we ask for a Tag Team Title shot we are met with crickets!
Hercules steps up next with a fierce look in his eyes
Hercules: Shaun Hart you son of a bitch we demand you come out here and award us what we have earned! We are the only team on this roster that has taken the Tag Team Champions to their limit. Team Olympus is done being everyone stepping stone, tonight we step up and take what's ours!
Zeus: So come on Shaun! Give us what we deserve!
The fans have a mixed reaction.
Mike Fisher: Team Olympus are done waiting on Championship opportunity, they are now just demanding it.
Scott James: Be careful what you wish for boys.
Team Olympus stand their impatiently waiting for Shaun of the Gangster of Christ to answer them but when the music hits, it's clear that it isn't Shaun or the Tag Team Champions.
Bryan Martin- Everyone's an Outlaw blast over the speakers in the arena and ten fans instantly go crazy.
Scott James: Who the hell is this?!
Mike Fisher: Oh I know this duo, Team Olympus better get ready because The Outlaws have arrived in IIW and they're looking for a fight.
Terry and Bradshaw of The Outlaws come out on stage drinking beers together, as they chug them down they smash the beer cans aagainst their heads and then toss them to the side, they look towards the ring at Team Olympus with a smirk on their face and then Bradshaw flips them off and talk some trash before pushing Terry and pointing to Team Olympus, after what looks like a fiery pep talk The Outlaws sprint towards the ring as Team Olympus gets ready for a fight.
Mike Fisher: All hell is about break lose.
Terry and Bradshaw slide into the ring but Team Olympus instantly puts the boots to them but The Outlaws fight their way back up and once they are on their feet they start unloading with punches to rock Team Olympus. Zeus swings wild at Terry but Terry blocks it and delivers a stiff kick to the gut followed by a double-arm DDT!
Scott James: Zeus just got his lights turn out!
Mike Fisher: And Hercules looks like he's about to join them.
Bradshaw ducks a swing by Hercules and then comes back and rocks him with an uppercut and then gives him a stunner than sends Hercules up in the air and then hitting the mat like a fish out of water, the fans go wild in the arena as The Outlaws send Team Olympus out of the ring. Terry does a bang bang sign with his fingers as him and Bradshaw come to the center of the ring with the microphones in their hands.
Bradshaw: Now that we got the trash out of here, allow me to introduce you to the baddest son of bitches on the planet! My names Bradshaw and I'll kick your ass for free let alone for Tag Team Gold! And right there is Terry, he's a little crazy but he's been my best drinking bud for years and also my tag team partner. We started together when I had some hair on my head so you know this bond can't be broken.
Bradshaw winks at the camera.
Bradshaw: But what can be broken is the asses of The Gangster of Christ if they don't get their asses down here before the count of five… But then again I don't think those boys can go anywhere without their DADDY!
Terry and Bradshaw laugh a little.
Terry: Now now Bradshaw, let's give those kids a chance to man up.
Bradshaw: Ok Terry let's see if the toddlers can talk that talk without their Daddy holding their hands. Come on out Champs!
As if on que "Country Boy Can Survive" hits the airwaves and out walks the IIW's current tag team champions The Gangsters of Christ, lead by their father and manager Michael. The trio take a few steps down the entry way and just stop.
MICHAEL DAWSON: I'm not exactly sure what it is you boys think you are going to accomplish by calling my sons out here other than a guaranteed trip to the Emergency Room but if you think beating on a team that my boys kicked the shit out of a few weeks ago is going to impress us you are sorely mistaken. So how about you fellas go out there, win a couple of matches, show us that you are worth our time and then maybe roll the dice by speaking our names again and see what happens.
Poppa Dawson figuratively and literally drops the mic as the champs return back up the ramp and out of sight.
We return from a commercial break and peep inside the office of General Manager Shaun Hart as he Speaks on his cellphone with Joe Montouri listening on at his side.
Shaun Hart: Look I’m not going to beat around the push, The Meccas enemies continue to grow and rise up against us. I need more firepower, I need someone I know can get the job done. There are plenty opportunities for you here if you decide to take me up on my offer.
The World Champion Jmont leans in over Shaun’s shoulder.
JMont: Hey meatball it’s Jmont! You know you want to be on the winning team with endless opportunities. Stop playing so hard to get and agree to the terms so we can help inject the Venom into IIW and clean out its system!
Shaun pulls away from Jmont as he tries to listen to the caller on the other end.
Shaun Hart: Yeah The Champ really wants you on his team and so do I do what’s it going to take?
After a few minutes of listening in, a sinister smile comes over the face of Shaun Hart.
Shaun Hart: Good! I'll see you next Mayhem!
Shaun hangs up the phone and looks at Jmont with a smile as we return back to the action.
( Two top talents from across the wrestling world will meet in the first round of The IIW International Tournament when Enigma takes on Tristan Slater. Both are highly decorated professional wrestlers but only one can move on to add more glory to their resume. Who will walk out with the breathing rights and onto the next round? )
Round One of The IIW International Tournament
Standard Singles Match
Enigma vs Tristan Slater
Luna est dominae, volkodlak malorum
Artes et perditae, lycan incarnatus
Luna est dominae, volkodlak malorum
Artes et perditae, lycan incarnatus"
A dense fog rolls out along the entrance ramp, the haunting whispered chant growing in volume along with the pulsing tempo of the music. A hulking horned beast appears from the gloom, slowly and methodically stalking towards the ring. His leather doomsday cloak is open over his massive chest, each step bringing him further into the light until "The Monster Machine" is revealed in full. The dark and Gothic chanting continues, music swelling in volume as each pulse in the tempo and each measured step of the monster are in sync.
"Rota, vita, mara, vena
Mare, dracul, morte, vita
Rota, vita, mara, vena
Mare, dracul, morte, vita"
Alice Goldier: Making his way to the ring, from THE BOILER ROOM, I hive you EGNIMA!!!!
ENIGMA ascends the ring steps and subtly wipes his feet on the apron, turning towards the crowd as he removes the horned skull mask, revealing his soot-streaked face and colorless eyes. Throwing his head back, he sprays a bloody mist into the air before letting out a snarl. When his head lowers, blood drips from his chin, down his heaving chest.
Enigma and Tristan Slater waste the first moments of the match, measuring one another up, until they clinch, and the first power struggle happens. Enigma gets the early advantage, kneeing Tristan Slater to the guts, folding the bigger guy. Enigma then whips Tristan Slater into the ropes. As Tristan comes back, he surprises Enigma with a shoulder tackle. Enigma quickly kip-ups to his feet, only to be caught by a clothesline. Seeing Enigma rub his neck, Tristan Slater laughs, as this just seems to easy for him... Until Enigma flips him over with a small package!
Mike Fisher: Tristan Slater let his guard down for a split second and he almost paid for that!
Scott James: We're yet to see if it was luck or just opportunity. If Enigma is as talented as he's thinks, we may be looking at something awesome here.
Tristan quickly rolls back to his feet, shocked, and Enigma smirks at him, and leads with a hard right
Scott James: Straight to the kisser! Not the best idea!
Mike Fisher: Tristan Slater just added some insult factor to this match!
Before Tristan Slater can attempt an enzuigiri, Enigma sweeps his base leg and forces him down onto his back, quickly leaping over him and striking with a double leg drop to his abdomen. Tristan Slater arches forward in pain, but Enigma quickly connects with a standing moonsault. As Tristan Slater seems to not be moving at all, Enigma gets up to his feet and, to the crowd's delight, he points upwards, a motion he's known for doing when he's about to fly.
Mike Fisher: Judging by the crowd's reaction we're about to witness something BIG happen.
Indeed Enigma climbs to the top turnbuckle, and locks crosshairs on Tristan Slater... Fortunately for Tristan he is able to sit up. Aborting what he wanted to do, Enigma watches as Tristan Slater slowly crawls away from the center of the ring, and waits patiently until he's up to his feet. When he is, Enigma takes a jump for a missle drop kick, but Tristan steps out the way! Enigma crashes down
This is the opportunity Tristan Slater needs to put Enigma in a sleeper hold! It doesn't take Enigma much, though, until he reaches the corner.
Tristan Slater is forced to let go of the hold, and takes the best of her 5 seconds to do that. Enigma quickly brings himself back to his feet. As soon as he does, Tristan Slater jumps forward and attempts to strike Enigma with a forearm smash, that misses wildly, as they duck and Tristan Slater bounces on the top rope, staggering backwards. Enigma the shoves him back against the ropes, so he bounces harder, and as he comes back, he's caught in an jawbreaker. Enigma keeps Tristan Slater, smashing Tristan Slater against the mat. After Tristan Slater bounces on the mat, Enigma rolls him over and covers!
Tristan Slater kicks out. Without missing a beat, Enigma gets up, and slowly brings Slater to his feet as well, only to have Tristan whip him into the ropes. Enigma holds onto the ropes, frustrating Tristan Slater's plans, as he swings his leg upwards for a Super kick, but kicks the air. Enigma waits for Tristan Slater's motion to end, and then launches himself forward... Tristan Slater however takes an extra spin and clocks Enigma square with an enzuigiri to the face. As Enigma crumbles, Tristan Slater taunts the crowd, opening his arms, before getting Enigma to his feet and bringing the Monster Machine to his feet. Tristan Slater then whips Enigma to the closest turnbuckle, and takes two steps of distance as the wrestler is sitting on the turnbuckles. Slater then sprints forward and leaps into Enigma for a vicious looking clothesline, but Enigma swiftly ducks and goes under the arm, as he hits his arm against the metal post behind the turnbuckles! As Tristan Slater clutches at heisarm, Enigma takes impulse forward and smashes Slater hard again Grabbing him it’s time for QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
As Enigma slams hard down into the pin….
Mike Fisher: We have a winner and progressing in the tournament is ENIGMA!
Scott James: A statement victory tonight for Egnima, after this match you have to think this monster is a favorite to walk away with The International Championship when it's all said and done.
Motörhead’s version of “Sympathy for the Devil” slams the eardrums of the crowd and the booing and jeering ignites the Stadium as Fred Debonair steps out dressed in Sneakers, jeans and a black “MECCA” Tee-Shirt. He stands at the top of the ramp soaking up the animosity before strutting down to the ring. He stops at the steps, looks around and stomps up them as if escalating an issue to the second tier of customer service. He wipes his feet on the apron and steps through the ropes before asking for a microphone. He paces for a bit, running his hand up and down and across his waist.
FRED DEBONAIR: “Notice anything??”
The crowd at this stage are already chanting “You got Sto-ned! You got Sto-ned.” As Fred chuckles and lifts the mic again.
FRED DEBONAIR: “You’re right, I did but that’s not what we’re here to talk about! Okay jokes aside look, I understand you guys don’t actually care what I’ve got to say and that aside I don’t give a shit whether you care or not… Maxwell Stone, you actually managed to get the job done eh?? You actually managed to pin Fred Debonair for the IIW UK Title…. But let me ask you, was that YOU Maxwell, or was it The Maniac?! Because quite frankly as much as I admire what you did and the way you won I can’t help but feel it was the coward's way out! I’m also trying to figure out whether or not that official, who’s name I will find out soon enough, did what he had done, intentionally! I mean yes I took a desperate measure, but he almost called for a DQ and I wasn’t willing to let that happen. I had people asking Fred why didn’t you just allow the ref to DQ you and walk away with the belt? Simply put, I'm better than that.
Maxwell accused me of trying to take the easy way out because I kicked him in the balls, yet said he was surprised I didn’t get Shaun to reverse any kind of decision?! The two together make no sense. I kicked you in the nuts out of frustration Maxwell which is why I didn’t try and cover you at the time! And you know what hoss I’d do it again. But when I realised I was about to be disqualified I made sure that official understood what he was about to do, should he call for the bell! But what happened next was unacceptable! You returned the favour, which is understandable but then the official just gave you the green light to cover me. And you did!”
Fred paces the ring again, as the crowd cheer and chant for Max Stone; the hard-cam focusing on Fred’s face which looks calm and collected, however you can see a twitch just above his eyebrow, his veins threatening to push through.
FRED DEBONAIR: “Here’s the kicker though, Maxwell. Pun intended… I told you before we met in the ring that I already knew what was going to happen at K2S and I was perfectly fine with it, because wasn’t it you who made the point that belts don’t define me?! So even without that belt you’re keeping warm for me, Maxwell… I. AM. The Kingdom! I was ALWAYS The Kingdom it was never the title! But let me see just how much of a fighting Champ you are, brother… How about you put that United Kingdom Championship, where your mouth is and grant me my rematch??
Don’t worry though Maxwell, I won’t go calling you a coward or anything like that if you refuse the challenge… Just know that’s pretty much how everybody will see you, if you try and hide from this, hoss! So what say you, Champ?? I’ll be waiting for your response…! Oh! Before I go… J Mont I know you’re out the back buddy and I’m looking around and can’t see it, so brother I’m gonna have to collect that five hundred myself! Yo drop it!”
With that, Fred looks up as a huge banner begins to unfurl from the rafters which reads…
“BAM F**KED OSH’S EX WIFE!”
The crowd boo incessantly as Fred then drops the mic, drops himself to the floor and rolls out of the ring, under the bottom rope laughing hysterically and pointing up as he makes his way to the back, amidst a chorus of boos and jeers in his direction.
( Former UK Champion Fred Debonair links to rebound after his loss at K2S by securing a win in the first round of the IIW International tournament and moving on at a chance to become Champion again but his path to Gold is blocked by an equally motivated individual as undefeated IIW Superstar Deandre Willaims looks to continue his momentum by getting a win over a former Champion and advancing to the next round. Who will win when these two titans collide?
Round One of The IIW International Tournament
Standard Singles Match
Fred Debonair vs Deandre Williams
Clips of Deandre hitting various moves begins to play on the screen, interspersed with images of the man himself, with the sounds of "O Fortuna" playing throughout the arena as the lights around the JumboTron periodically flash, before focusing on a shot of DeAndre's face before turning to pitch black as the music changes to Walk it, Talk it. Smoke then begins to rise from the stage with a spotlight shining on Deandre, who is wearing a silver hooded jacket, with "DeAndre" written across the right and "Williams" written across the left and his head bowed. Lifting his head, he walks down toward the ring, intensity in every step and focused solely on the ring.
Alice Goldier: Making his way to the ring, from Joplin, Missouri I give you Deandre Williams!!!!
Reaching the bottom of the ramp, he slides in under the bottom rope, standing before walking across to the opposite ropes and pushing the hood back, letting out a roar as he does. Making his way to his corner, he takes off the jacket, tossing it to an attendant before leaning against the turnbuckle.
Mike Fisher: Here we go with another first round match up of the IIW International Tournament and I can tell you now folks that you want to buckle down and not miss this matchup between the unbeaten Deandre Williams and former U.K. Champion Fred Debonair.
Scott James: This one has banger written all over it.
The arena lights go black and the video begins to play. Once the lyrics start, Fred Debonair steps out through the curtains and stands on the ramp as the place erupts into a chorus of boos and jeers.
Alice Goldier: Making his way to the ring, from Hell’s Kitchen, NY., he weighs in at 240lbs, I give you Fred Debonair!!!!
Fred closes his eyes, soaking up the hate as he puts his hands out and wiggles his fingers in a motion signifying he wants the crowd to keep it up. Laughing he makes his day down to the ring, rolling in under the bottom rope.
Fred stands and hops up onto the turnbuckle, raising his arms, once again feeling the heated hate billowing from the crowd, he flips them off and drops onto the canvas as his music fades and the lights return to normal…
Mike Fisher: The former U.K. Champion looks ready to go to battle tonight and he’s gotta be because a highly talented and undefeated Deandre Williams stand across from him , ready to run through him to get to the next round.
Scott James: One thing about Fred is that he’s always got a plan no matter what, now whether that plan will work on Deandre remains to be seen.
Mike Fisher: We’ll we don’t have to wait much longer for the actin, because these two titans are about to collide.
The cockiness showed on Deandre just a little bit as he tried to lock with Fred in the middle of the ring. He was all smiles while Fred had a sour taste in his mouth after losing at Keys 2 Success. As they seemed to lock up, Fred rolled back and took Deandre up and over onto his back. Rising up he hit the ropes like a bullet. Coming back as Deandre was rising to a knee to find himself being taken down with a CALF KICK to the face!
Mike Fisher: Fred coming out hot and setting the tone for this match.
Scott James: Fred’s a veteran with a high wrestling IQ that knows you have to take it to a young guy like Deandre early.
Fred was then picked up and moved to the ropes. Deandre leaned him back and started to send BOXING JABS to the sides of Fred. Each fist seemed to nearly lift Fred up with the force behind them. Deandre swung with his right to come with a HOOK PUNCH to Freds head nearly dazing him completely. Deandre let him lean on the ropes as he turned to charge the other side. Behind him Fred stepped out and dropped to a knee, but once Deandre was bound back he popped up and showed his hops with a LEAPFROG as Deandre charged back. Hitting the floor Fred chased behind Deandre and nailed him with a RUNNING FOREARM STRIKE.
Scott James: Fred trying to knock Deandre out early.
Fred turned with his back to Deandre as he charged the ropes before him. Deandre this time went into a charge as well, and Fred met him with a SHOULDER TACKLE to the ground. Looking down at Deandre, he just smiled. Fred turned and hit the ropes and Deamdre turned over and scooted into a DROPDOWN before Fred. Having to leap over and continue his run Deandre got up to his feet and positioned himself for a LEAPFROG over Fred. Landing behind him Deandre turned around letting loose an ARMDRAG!
Scott James: I'm amazed every time I see the athletic ability of Deandre Williams.
Fred was hit with 4 Arm Drags before he tried to reverse the 5th. He laid on the canvas and Deamdre instead yanked him up into a JAPANESE ARM DRAG! The 6th Fred tried to throw a kick and Deandre ducked under the leg, grabbed Fred in a cutthroat only to spin him around and hit ANOTHER Arm drag! Soon all 10 would be hit and Fred took ride on the 10 Consecutive Arm Drags.
Mike Fisher: Deandre having his way right now with Fred.
Deandre moved right into Fred raising him up to his feet. Almost fearing for another arm drag, Fred went into a back roll to put some space between himself and Deandre. Deandre lunged forward with a CLOTHESLINE as Fred was rising up but he grabbed the arm. Spinning under it his body turned as a foot raised up for a CORKSCREW KICK. Dazing Deandre he stumbled back shaking his head but charged still once again. Fred went into a DROP TOE HOLD. Rolling to his feet he bounded the turnbuckles almost in a single leap. Turning he kept from the turnbuckle with a MISSILE DROPKICK to Deandre's chest!
Mike Fisher: Air Fred!
Fred went forma quick cover!
Fred moved to pick up Deandre and send him towards the ropes! Sending him up and over the top one. Deandre had the sense to land on his feet and hold onto the top rope. Fred turned his head and noticed this. Charging right to Deansre, Deandre grabbed the middle rope and shot a foot out to meet Fred, who came towards him. Booting him across the face, Deandre went to pull Fred up and over the top rope. Both men now on the apron would see Deandre sending clubbing forearms to the back of Deandres neck. Fred shoved Deansre back and held onto the rope, leaning on it he went for a PUMP KICK to Deandre while on the apron! Instead Deandre BACKFLIPPED off of the apron and stumbled back. Running forward with a single leap he was up on the apron with his arms around Freds waist into a Top Rope Belly to Belly!
Mike Fisher: Deandre is just an unreal athlete, this kid is a video game character.
Fred found himself hooking both arms onto the top rope not letting himself be taken off the apron with that. Instead Deandre slipped back off the apron and landed on his feet stumbling again. From the apron Fred looked out to Deandre and backflipped off the apron onto him. His knees are more out and upward with Shooting Star Knee Drop!
Scott Jjames: Fred showing off in this match, the former UK Champion is putting on a show for everyone.
Fred got to his feet and started to rouse up the crowd, clapping his hands above his head he turned to the ring to slide into it. Getting to his feet he charged the ropes before him to bounce off and head back to where Deandre was. He was going for a TOPE CON HILO when Hakeem out of NOWHERE popped onto the apron throwing his fist up in an uppercut! Yet Deandre didn’t exactly roll into the ring either. Fred crumbled to the ground and Deandre laid back holding his chest after that knee drop ontop of him. He was slow to pull himself up but there was a small rage building in the pits of his stomach. He pulled himself up as Fred rolled onto his back finding himself crawling to the safety of the corner. Deandre chased behind him and found himself sending a BACK ELBOW right into Fred! Deandre turned him around and sat him up on the second rope facing the crowd. Leaping up, both hands went into his shoulders as he pulled him back into a Rope Assisted Backstabber!
Mike Fisher: High impact move by Williams.
Moving Fred off of him Deandre rose to his feet and looked out to the crowd with a smug grin. Taking to the ropes he turned and came down with a SENSATIONAL ELBOW DROP right into the chest of Fred! He turned over and hooked the leg!
Scott James: I for sure thought that one was over.
Mike Fisher: So did Deandre.
Deandre went right into a SIDE HEADLOCK to keep Fred grounded. Turning him slightly brings him up to his knees then up to his feet. Pushing him back into the ropes he grabbed his arm and sent him off into an IRISH WHIP. Chasing behind him Fred rebounded off and went right into the shoulders of Deandre. Lifting him up for a SAMOAN DROP but Fred landed behind him stumbling. Deandre sat up only to find Fred starting to pick him up. Placing him in a DRAGON SLEEPER he lifted Deandre up by the waist and stepped forward placing him onto his shoulders. Shoving him off he threw a leg, Fireman’s Carry into RoundHouse Kick! Rushing over to Deandre he picked him up, butterflying his arms in a lock he took him up and over with a BUTTERFLY SUPLEX, he rolled through still held onto Deandre. Shifting his hold he was taken up and over, Fred turning him around before sitting out with a FALCON ARROW. Once again he rolled back but this time through the middle ropes. On the apron he held onto the top rope waiting for Deandre to arise. When he did, Fred lept up onto the top rope and springboarded off towards Deandre and nails him with a Springboard Forearm but Deandre connected with his elbow right after Fred was about to land, not leaving him much space open to protect himself from the attack. Deandre rushed over to the man and picked him up into a REVERSE ATOMIC DROP. Spinning around him he took by the arm, kicked out his leg for a HARAI GOSHI(Sweeping hip throw). Fred was of a slightly larger frame. Yet that didn’t hinder Deandre from leaning down and wrapping a hand around the throat of Fred. He yelled as he hooked one leg and lifted him UP into the air, turning and bringing him down with a LEG TRAP CHOKESLAM! There wasn’t much Fred could do as soon he was picked up by the sides of his head. Stuffed between Deandre thighs, he wrenched one arm up then the other. Deandre hopped back and dropped to his knees while Fred was defenseless for the Train to Joplin (Spear) but Fred ducks out of the way and Deandre spears the life out of the referee.
Mike Fisher: Holy hell!
Deandre checks on the referee while Fred pulls himself back up. Once back on his feet, he realizes what just happened and goes for his JIWC Title but as he goes to grab it, Max Stone comes out of nowhere and pulls the title away from Fred with a smirk on his face. Fred talks some trash to Max before returning around and walking right into
(Closeline from hell)
Deandre turned the man over and hooked the leg, looking right into the hard camera mouthing along with the ref.
Alice Goldier: Here is your winner by pinfall and advancing to the next round of the IIQ International Tournament, Deandre Williams!!!!
Mike Fisher: With a little help from Max Stone, Deandre Willaims is able to knock off the former UK Champion, stay undefeated, and advance to the next round of the tournament.
Scott James: Great win for him but I'm sure Max just put an even bigger target on his back tonight.
Deandre Willaims.celbrates in the ring while Fred stands outside starting down a smiling Max Stone up the ramp.
Scott sits in his house in Eltham, a glass of vanilla coke in front of him, as he looks into the camera. His face the portrait of stoicism, he takes a sip from the glass before beginning his discourse.
Scott: WarGames. The one constant of the IIW in the 3 years it has been back. A match that has been seen as the ultimate frontier. The final battle to determine who will stand tall and who will wilt, fading away into nothingness as they do.
He continues to stare into the camera, his expression unchanging.
Scott: A match that I have never stepped into before. I had other ventures I was roaming down. Other paths I was taking, but now--- now there is no other road but the one that leads to war. That leads to stepping inside of the cage. Stare the enemy right in their eyes. For this is how it must be, if we are to engage in a war that shall define the passsge IIW takes moving forward.
Taking another sip from the glass, a more determined look appears within his eyes.
Scott: See, this isn't simply about Osh. This isn't simply about bringing about the downfall of Mecca. It never was--- this is about something greater. This is the next cog of the machine. The next step of the process. One that was set into motion the moment I wore the mask. The moment I agreed to become Mr Intensity. One that you simply cannot comprehend until it appears right before your very eyes.
A small smile begins to appear on his face.
Scott: Don't you worry about Mecca falling. That operation will be fulfilled in the process. It is one of the pieces that will fall into place as it all begins to take form. A sight to behold as they see that they never held control. That at any moment, it would all be stripped away from them when they no longer served their designed purpose.
He blows into the camera, as if there is a candle in front of him.
Scott: Just like that.
Scott: World's collide is where it all begins again. It is where it all falls into place. I just hope you're ready for that time to arrive.
His eyes begin to glow as he stares deeper into the camera.
Scott: I will see you there.
With that, the camera switches off.
( The first Key holder Maverick Tatum looks to keep running up the success by entering The IIW International Tournament and becoming a Champion without having to use his key but first he must get by the impressive undefeated Ckyde Newton who's looking to capture his first Championship gold in IIW. Who wins when these two stars collide?)
Round One of The IIW International Tournament
Standard Singles Match
Maverick Tatum vs Clyde Newton
Maverick Tatum grabs Clyde Newton as the bell rings, pulling him to his knees only to have the attempt foiled when he follows up with a quick knee to the midsection. Maverick Tatum shakes it off and comes back hard with a knife-edge chop against Clyde Newton's neck. He keeps on his opponent, sending him reeling towards the corner with a series of hard chops. He sends a vicious sidekick into Clyde Newton's midsection and then applies a belly to back release suplex. Not wasting a moment's time, Maverick Tatum lays the boots to Clyde Newton, stomping and kicking hard as the crowd begins to grow restless.
Clyde Newton gets to his feet slowly and just as he does, Maverick Tatum gives him a big boot to the face. Sending him crashing back to the mat, Maverick Tatum immediately scrambles into position for a high angle Boston crab, working on the still tender back of his opponent. Clyde Newton wraps one hand around the bottom rope, and Maverick Tatum refuses to break the hold until he gets a warning from the ref. Leveling another vicous kick into Clyde Newton's stomach, Maverick Tatum backs off, rolling out of the ring for a breather. Clyde Newton pulls himself upright, still favoring his back. The two men lock gazes again, and then, surprisingly, Clyde Newton springs over the top rope, launching himself at Mav. Maverick Tatum tries to duck, but Clyde Newton sails over his head, catching the back of his neck for a DDT on the outside. Clyde Newton rolls back to his feet and levels a few kicks to the ribs of Maverick Tatum before helping him back into the ring.
Mike Fisher: Clyde Newton is a force to be reckoned with!
Scott James: Really? Have you been dipping into my stash again?
Mike Fisher: Say what you want!
Maverick Tatum goes for a clothesline but Clyde Newton ducks and follows up with a forearm smash to the face. Clyde Newton catches his arm and sends Mav into the ropes. When he comes back, telegraphing a clothesline, Clyde Newton dives and catches him in a grapple, reversing it into a spinning side slam. Maverick Tatum regains his balance and as he does, Clyde Newton executes an amazing windmill kick that sends his opponent down hard.
Scott James: I don't know how much more of this punishment Clyde Newton can take!
Mike Fisher: Are we even watching the same match?
Maverick Tatum grabs the foot of Clyde Newton as he tries for another cheap stomping, pulling him off balance. Clyde Newton goes down but drops a fist right to the face of Tatum. He scrambles off Tatum, but doesn't quite make it, applying a facelock against his knee. Clyde Newton goes limp, ignoring the pain as Maverick Tatum jerks on his neck before Clyde Newton violently breaks the hold. He gets up to his knees, moving his jaw around as he watches Tatum. As soon as he moves to get up, Clyde Newton dives on him with a Thesz press and starts pummeling him with punches.
Scott James: Oh, it's all over now.
Mike Fisher: Wait! Wait!
The two collide and Clyde Newton throws his weight backwards, rolling Maverick Tatum into a small package.
Maverick Tatum has done it! He advances in the tournament!
Maverick Tatum tools out of the ring and celebrates as the referee raises his hand and then begins to make his way up the ramp and then heads to back while Clyde Newton sits their on his knees in frustration, he slaps the mat as he gets up slowly and then walks over towards the ropes to shake his head. A few minutes later The World Heavyweight Champion Joe Montouri comes walking down the ramp with a microphone in his hand. He slide sin to the ring and looks at Clyde as he lifts the microphone up.
JMONT: Now what happens between you and Fred was a bad look for The Mecca. I've worked things out with Fred and all is good now Clyde, you're welcome back into the family.
Jmont opens his arms up for a hug, Ckude smiles and goes for the embrace and for a moment it looks like everything is right in the world of The Mecca but then Jmont knees Ckyde is groin.
JMont: Fred made a mistake... But his mistake wasn't leaving you high and dry in Thunder Pro Wrestling, his mistake was not finishing the job!!!!
JMont his a JKO on Clyde Newton, which leaves him laid out in the ring but The Champion isn't done yet as he lays some punches into yeh skull of Clyde until he starts to bleed.
Mike Fisher: This is sick!
Scott James: No this is message to everyone that crosses Mecca, if The Champ is willing to do this to his own people what do you think he is going to do at Worlds Collide inside War Games?
Jmont back up to the corner and waits for Clyde to try to get up and as soon as he does Jmont charges towards him with all his might and strikes Clyde in the head with a thunderous punt kick!!!
Mike Fisher: This is uncalled for, that son of a bitch Jmont is a piece of work!
Jmont celebrates what he's just done as he stands over Clyde and hits his signature pose as the fans boo towards him.
The tron comes alive with video of the IIW United Kingdom Champion, Max Stone, lacing up his boots. A can of spray paint can be seen on the ground next to his feet. His intense focus is broken by someone walking into the room. Max looks up in surprise.
Osh: What's all this?
The camera moves up to the wall where the names of each Mecca member are spray painted in black. The first five names have lines through them and "GOLIATH" is circled.
Osh: I see. I have full faith that you're going to retain the United Kingdom title tonight.
Max stands up.
Max (sarcastically): Well gee, thanks boss!
Osh: Looks like you're not feeling very friendly tonight.
Max: Don't know how friendly I should be towards someone who made everyone think they're dead for 6 months.
Osh: I had my reasons…
Max: And what were those? Letting this place go to shit under the watch of Shaun Hart? This Mecca stuff? That's on you. You allowed it to happen.
Osh: I'm talking to the Maniac now, aren't I?
Max: If that's what you want to call me, then yeah, you got the goddamn Maniac front and center. Let me make something clear to you. Sooner or later I was going to give Goliath what's coming to him and the only reason it's happening tonight is because Shaun Hart wanted to get you back for putting J Fraud against your nephew who we've barely seen in months.
Osh: Listen here…
Max: Since I'm on Team Osh, Shaun thought it was a big punishment for me to have to put my title on the line tonight but I want you to know that just because we're on the same side of the battle line doesn't mean I'm fighting FOR you. Mecca started this war and I'M going to finish it.
Osh's expression hasn't changed since Max started talking. If any of this is phasing him, he won't give Max the satisfaction of knowing so. Max now gets closer to Osh and stares right into his sunglassed eyes.
Max: But you know what I think, boss? I think you thrive on this chaos. Why else would you roll out the red carpet for MORE CCPE scumbags to come in here and whiz all over the floor? Why else would you let a guy like Tristan Slater walk right back through the door and verbally take a flamethrower to your life's work? Do you really want a guy like that taking your International Title if it comes to that?
Osh puts his hand on Max's shoulder.
Osh: Relax, Max! Why so angry?
Max: I've been angry my entire life and I'm not one to stand idly by while the bullshit express keeps rolling through town. I want those fans out there to come to an IIW show to get the best possible show without having the CCPEs of the world stopping by for a few days and taking money straight from their pockets and then coming back again when they need a quick pick me up.
Osh takes off his sunglasses and smiles.
Osh: Max, Max, Max… you're a champion in the IIW and the people out there love you. You'll get your revenge on Mecca and then you'll have nothing more to be angry about.
Osh puts his sunglasses back on and makes his way towards the exit. He quickly turns back around and looks at Max once more.
Osh: Cheer up. You're on Team Osh!
( Max Stone war against The Mecca continues as Shaun Hart forces him to defend his UK Championship against their monster Goliath. With Worlds Collide on the horizon can Max make a statement with a win over another Mecca member or will Goliath weaken Team Osh before they collide? )
IIW UK Championship
Standard Singles Match
Goliath vs Max Stone ©
BEAST UNLEASHED plays over the speakers and ana angry looking Goliath comes marching down the ramp, ignoring the fans as his eyes are focused on the ring.
Alice Goldier; Making his way to the ring, from Dallas Texas, he weighs in at 385lbs, I give you Goliath!!!!
He pulls himself up by the ropes then steps over them and waist in the corner for the match to start.
Mike Fisher: Look at the size of this man! I have faith in the UK Champion but Max Stone has a real disadvantage in the size area.
Scott James: In more ways than one that's for sure but Goliath will need more than size to take down the Champion. We've seen Max get back up multiple times in a match, it will truly take a lot to keep him down and take the UK Championship off him.
The arena lights go dark as the intro to "Head like a Hole" by Nine Inch Nails starts playing. Clocks of all different varieties displaying "12:00" light up on the video board.
The stage explodes with red pyrotechnics as the song's first verse begins. Out walks Max Stone, stepping over little pieces of fire left over from the pyro. He looks around the arena and admires the support from the fans.
Alice Goldier: Making his way to the ring, from Los Angeles, CA, he weighs in at 265lbs, I give you the U.K. Champion Max Stone!!!!!
God money, I'll do anything for you
God money, just tell me what you want me to
God money, nail me up against the wall
God money, don't want everything, he wants it all
Max walks up the ring steps and enters the ring as the chorus of the song hits and white strobe lights flash through the arena.
Head like a hole, black as your soul
I'd rather die than give you control
Head like a hole, black as your soul
I'd rather die than give you control
Max paces around the ring and then raises his arms into the air to bow. The crowd mimics him as they cheer like crazy.
Bow down before the one you serve
You're going to get what you deserve
Bow down before the one you serve
You're going to get what you deserve
Max goes to a corner and waits for the bell to ring.
Mike Fisher: The Champion looks ready to defend his title. He’s motivated and hungry more than ever to take down The Mecca, getting a win over their beast would be a great blow to them.
Scott James: Agreed but that is easier said than done. We saw what kind of destruction Goliath can caused when unleashed. Max will have to play it smart because there is no way he can match Goliaths power.
Mike Fisher: Well we're going to see which one of these competitors is ready to go the distance for the U.K. Championship.
Goliath walked out of his corner at the sound of the bell staring down the champion across from him. Max thoughts were running and you could see it on his face about how he wanted to approach this match. He circled around the big man, the challenger following his movement. Max moved in to deliver a forearm smash to the big man’s chest which seemed to un-appease the challenger. He delivered a second, and the same result. He went in for a third, but Goliath blocked it and grabbed Max by his shoulders pushing the champion back to the turnbuckle with ease. Max hit and fell to the ground and looked up to Goliath as the monster flexed and roared, showcasing his power for intimidation which had the crowd in jeers.
MAX LUNGES BUT ERIK SNATCHES HIM UP!
Mike Fisher: The power of Goliath is making a difference early in this match already.
Scott James: Max has to find a way to neutralize the power advantage that Goliath has.
Max hit hard against the mat, but Goliath was wanting to demonstrate his power in the early going. He grabbed Max by his head and lifted him up on his shoulder before running and delivering a powerful RUNNING SLAM! He hooks the champion’s leg!
Mike Fisher: That was a close one!
Scott James: The UK Championship was almost back in the hands of The Mecca.
Goliath stayed on the offensive with the champion as he again grabbed Max by his head and lifted him to his feet. Goliath's big left hand raised in the air before bringing it down against the champ’s chest with a loud thud!
GOLIATH LET OUT A POWERFUL YELL BEFORE ONE BIG FINAL CHOP!
Mike Fisher: GOOD GOD!!!
Scott James: Goliath just tried to have the chest of Max in.
Max fell to his knees and you could see the red welts that were imprinted onto his chest. Goliath grabbed the champ, lifted him up into a military press hold and walked to the edge of the ring where Mike and Scott were sitting ringside at the announce table before lunging the champ onto the ringside floor! Max bounced against the floor and found himself leaning against the bottom part of the announce table. He was trying to catch his breath as Goliath took a few moments to address the jeering fans showcasing his dominance, but they weren’t having it and they let him know. The referee had begun to count Max on the outside, and Goliath realized that he needed to get the champ back in the ring to win. He took a step over the top rope before hoping down to the floor. Max was back to his knees and Goliath grabbed his head. Max went for a right hand to the gut, but it bounced off like a brick. He tried a second time, but to no avail. Max caught him by surprise with a SHIN KICK! It caused Goliath to release his grasp on Stone, and then Max delivered another! GOLIATH WAS ON ONE KNEE! Max took a few steps back, measuring, as he knew he was going to have to get control of the match with technical strikes to bring the big guy down a little. He charged the challenger at ringside!
! CLOTHESLINE TO MAX!
Max fell to the floor like a rag doll. The referee was at a count of six at this time, and Goliath got to his feet before grabbing the champion and rolling him into the ring. Goliath moved under the bottom rope and hooked the champ’s leg for a second time in the match.
Mike Fisher: Another close one but no dice for Goliath
Max managed to get his shoulder up just before the referee’s hand hit for the third count. Goliath looked to the ref and clapped his hands together for the one, two, three as he showed the signs of aggression from not getting the pinfall. The Beast rose to his feet and grabbed Max by his head, lifting him up sideways before standing in the center of the ring and falling with Max for a BODY SLAM!
Scott James: Again the challenger is denied and the resiliency of Max Stone continues to pay off.
Again, Max got his shoulder up at the last minute! Goliath looked to the ref again, but turned his focus back to the champ before grabbing him by his midsection and lifting him up!
Mike Fisher: The UK Champion Max Stone refuses to stay down!
NO! Max was able to kick out with 9/10 of a second left. The Giant was confused and angry. He knew that he should have already won this match, but something inside Max was preventing it. The fans were on their feet every time the champ kicked out as they were rallying behind him, giving him the strength he needed to stay in this match. Goliath grabbed Max and lifted him up in a bearhug, but ran to the turnbuckle to deliver some more power, but Max was able to put his feet straight out which gave him spring out of the turnbuckle and TORNADO DDT! Goliath was down for the first time in the match!
Mike Fisher: Golaith has fallen!
The energy of the crowd gave Max momentum to get to his feet and climb to the top rope! He leaped off!
DIVING ELBOW DROP!
Max stood and let out a howl that rallied the fans behind him. Max leaned against the corner, waiting as he motioned for Goliath to get up. Goliath slowly pulled himself up in the corner from the other turnbuckle and when he turned Max was running at him.
BUT NO! Goliath ducked low enough to miss the knee connecting. Max stopped and jumped up with a back spinning kick that connected right to the side of Goliath! The Giant stood there for a moment dazed. Max ran against the rope and bounced back hitting a SPEAR! The champ covers!
Mike Fisher: I thought it was over.
Scott James: Max got the Giant on his back but it's not enough damage to keep Goliath down for three.
The fans were in shock and awe at the kick out from Goliath. They thought for sure what would do it, and even Max had the look of exhaustion on his face as he fell over beside Goliath.
Mike Fisher: This arena is behind the UK Champion.
The fans were chanting his name as the champion pulled himself to his feet. He grabbed the top rope to help him, but when he turned he was immediately lifted into a BEARHUG! by Goliath! The Giant walked with the champion to the center of the ring and began to squeeze the sides of the champion. Max let out a scream as the big man squeezed tighter and tighter. The referee was there asking the champion if he wanted to call it quits and submit. Max shook his head no, which only made Goliath squeeze even more. The referee asked again, but there was no response from the champion. He was faded and looked out!
Scott James: This one looks like it's almost over.
The chants from the crowd grew louder. The referee had no choice but to grab the champ’s arm and raise it up seeing it drop.
He raised it again, and the champion’s arm fell again.
The referee did it one more time.
Mike Fisher: The Champion lives!!!
The champ’s arm fell halfway before he awoke and held it up. With unbeknownst energy, the champion was resisting. He leaned all the way up and pushed Goliath's head back with his hands as far as he could before bringing his hands out to the side and SMACKING GOLIATH WITH AN EAR POP! THEN ANOTHER! Goliath let go of the bearhug! GOLIATH WAS UPSIDE DOWN FOR HALF A SECOND! THE CHAMP HIT HIM WITH A SCOOP SLAM! SCOOP SLAM ON THE BIG MONSTER!
Mike Fisher: Max just lifted the giant off his feet, what great power by the Champion!
Max backed up to the turnbuckle holding his back from lifting the man up, but he waited. Goliath got to one knee, and the champ came rushing!
Flying Knee Strike!!!!
The champ’s knee connected with Goliath and he fell to the ground with Max falling on top.
Mike Fisher: Max Stone did it! The Champion retains in a thriller.
Alice Goldier: Here is your winner by pinfall and still IIW UK Champion Max Stone!!!!!!
The referee raises Max Stine hand a she holds the UK Championship up in the air while standing over the fallen Goliath. The fans celebrate by changing his name but the celebration doesn't last long as former UK Champion Fred Debonair slides into the ring with a steel chair in hand and sneaks up behind Max before delivering a thunderous chair shot to the back.
Mike Fisher: Damn it Fred!
Scott James: Max Stone is just getting what he's asking for, he wants The Mecca well here they are.
As Max tries to get back up, Fred delivers another brutal shot to the back of Max and then lifts him up to deliver a DDT! He then wakes up Goliath and orders him up and once on his feet Goliath picks Max up and tosses him over the top rope and Max lands with a this near the announcement table. Fred slides out of the ring and delivers some punches while Goliath steps over the rope and joins them.
Mike Fisher: We need security out here, somebody's gotta stop this assault.
Scott James: Mecca is on a mission to weaken Team Osh before Worlds Collide.
Mike and Scott move out the way as Fred starts ordering Goliath to pick Max and put him through the announcement table. Goliath nods his head and grabs Max by his throat and then lifts him high in the air, ready to send Max to Hell… But out of nowhere Deandre Williams comes rushing in with a takedown tackle on Fred and starts laying into him with punches. He then jumps back up and goes after Goliath, Goliath drops Max down and turns his attention to Deandre but as Goliath goes for a big boot, Deandre catches his foot and pulls Goliath into a thunderous close line.
Mike Fisher: Deandre came to make the save, this young man was not happy with what he was seeing and especially wasn't thrilled with the shenanigans in his match.
Scott James: Deandre should've just accepted the results of his match and moved on with his business but now he finds himself involved in the war between Mecca and IIW.
Security then comes flying down the ramp and starts to retain everyone. Goliath knocks a couple guards out the way and makes way for Fred to get a cheap shot in on a restraining Max Stone while even more security comes down to hold back Goliath and Deandre as they talk trash back and forth.
Mike Fisher: These four men want to tear each other apart right now.
Scott James: The bad blood is real and you can guarantee this blood war will be settled at Worlds Collide!
( Dane Preston and Kim Pain are megastars across the pro wrestling world and have enough accolades to back up their hype but only one can advance to the next round of the IIW International Tournament when these two meet in the ring, who will advance?)
Round One of The IIW International Tournament
Standard Singles Match
Dane Preston vs Kim Pain
Suddenly the lights in the arena go out, plunging the fans into darkness. A lit fuze sizzles across the video screen, leading to an explosion of pyro around the entrance stage. The sound of a gunshot and a car peeling out, then the opening guitar riff for No Resolve’s “UNKILLABLE” shred across the PA speakers.
I MET THE DEVIL
HE WANTED ME DEAD
I PUT A MOTHERFUCKIN’
BULLET IN HIS HEAD
Dane Preston's silhouette can be seen slowly coming through the curtains as he steps out onto the stage. Nodding his masked head to the beat of the music, he extends an arm in front of him, the other behind him as he struts down the ramp. A single spotlight shines down on the six foot, three inch, two hundred and fifty-five pound fighter as he slowly stalks his way to the ring, clad in a sleeveless leather duster.
YOU BROKE ME DOWN, THE CUTS AND THE BRUISES
I HOLD THE KNIFE NOW, I'M CUTTING MY NOOSES
I WEAR THE BLOOD STAINS LIKE BADGES OF HONOR
I'LL TAKE EVERY BULLET BECAUSE I'M A SURVIVOR
Alice Goldier: Making his way to the ring, from San Francisco, California, weighing in at 255 lbs I give you Dane F’n Preston!!!
After scaling the ring steps, Preston slowly snaps his head from side to side before climbing into the ring and shrugging off his duster. He makes his way to his corner and climbs to the second rope where he points finger guns at the fans before snatching his mask off his head and throwing it out to them. Hopping down, Dane squats in the corner, arms outstretched as he grips the second rope with both hands awaiting his opponent.
Mike Fisher: Dane Preston is a man that's had success wherever he goes and has bloody rivalry with our World Champion but tonight he's here for one thing and that's to advance to the next round of this tournament.
Scott James: You can see the focused look in his eyes, he's ready for war and needs to be for his equally impressive opponent Kim Pain.
Born to raise hell by Motorhead starts to play and Kimberly Pain comes out from behind the curtain together with her agent Kat Jones and stands still for a moment looking at the crowd. She takes a moment to soak up the boo’s before she starts walking.
Alice Goldier : Making her way to the ring.. Accompanied by Kat Jones .. She is Kimberly Pain!
Kimberly walks down to the ring. Kat Jones takes her spot at the side of the ring and Kim hops onto the apron and gives a hip pop before she slides in between the ropes and waits in her corner for the match to start.
Mike Fisher: One of the toughest competitors on the planet and she's also one of the two women in this tournament that has a chance to become the first woman to become IIW International Champion.
Scott James:Yeah she does but before she can even think about that history-making moment she has to get pass someone just as determined.
With the sound of the bell, both of them would meet in the middle of the ring for a COLLAR AND ELBOW TIE-UP! Dane turned it into a SIDE HEADLOCK and used his size advantage on Kim. What he wasn't expecting was Kim slipping out of the headlock and leaned down to snatch both of Danes legs out from under him! Spinning around on his back she went for a GROUNDED HEADLOCK and kept his body from turning over. Dane threw one arm around her neck and he tried to roll to the side. Kim went instead to spin around on his back with her arm snatching Danes! She pulled his arm back now into a GROUNDED HAMMERLOCK. Dane was at least able to turn and sit on his backside, trying to reach up behind him toward Kim. She was small enough to duck out of the arm's length and keep the hammerlock. So Dane instead leaned back against her and started to push himself up. Kim tried to stay as low as possible but Dane started to turn around, Kim broke the hammerlock and spun around as Dane was moving and went into a DROP TOE HOLD!
Mike Fisher: Amazing back-and-forth action between these two, it's like watching a chess match.
Scott James: Both competitors know they must be disciplined with their craft, one false move could swing these in favor of the other.
A quick roll forward and she was locking in a SIDE HEADLOCK onto Dane once again! He got up to his knees and wrapped his arms around her waist pushing her towards the ropes. Raising his hands up his arms went towards her face and he started to lean her back against the ropes to cleanly break away from her. Both hands rose up to show he was cool. Back to the middle of the ring they went once again, another COLLAR AND ELBOW TIE UP would ensue! This time Dane pushed her to the side grabbing one arm and spinning under it snapping it down for an ARM WRINGER! Kim dropped to a knee and held her shoulder, but rolled forward up to her feet turned towards Dane, grabbed the arm that held the wristlock, and pulled herself under it, breaking the hold and bringing Dane for an ARM WRINGER of her own! Dane showed off his own by CART WHEELING out of the arm wringer and once he got to his feet he sent Kim off to the ropes with an IRISH WHIP! He came forward ducking down thinking he was able to backdrop Kim. As she came back, she ROLLED onto his back and on her feet behind him. Turning around, she grabbed his shoulder to spin Dane around. Grabbing his arm, she went for a HIP TOSS, but Kylian LANDED ON HIS FEET!
Mike Fisher: The wrestling we are witnessing is beautiful. You can tell these two both want this win badly.
Scott James: It's looking like this will come down to who wants it more.
Still, with her arm in his hand, he pulled her towards him, ducking down and bringing her up onto his shoulders in a fireman's carry! As she was kicking about, he shrugged her off of his shoulders and spun, throwing his leg up into the air! Fireman's Carry into Roundhouse Kick!!!
Mike Fisher: What a maneuver by Dane F’n Preston!!!!
BUT KIM CAUGHT THE FOOT!
Scott James: Kim with the cat like reflexes
Thrusting it down, she turned and lept up grabbing his head and rolling forward with a SNAP DDT! Getting to her feet she hit the ropes, turning around and swinging her foot out as Dane was forced to sit up and see this coming.
Mike Fisher: Dane on his way to seeing stars.
BUT DANE CAUGHT THE LEG THIS TIME!
Scott James: Dane showing off his own top-tier instincts.
They were both fresh into the match still, not taking much damage. Dane was quick enough to grab the leg and roll back onto his feet. Kim with her foot caught stumbled forward and dropped to her stomach, turning onto her back she pulled her legs towards herself. THRUSTING both her legs out and shoving Dane away from her. Dane took this opportunity to run toward the corner and effortlessly leap onto the second rope then the third. He tightrope walked along the top rope to where Victoria was just getting up. Throwing his body forward! Tight-rope walk into Shooting Star Press!!!
Mike Fisher: Dane Preston is unbelievable!
He hooked the leg!
Scott James: Dane almost just pulled this off.
Kim got the shoulder up just in time and was hurting from having to CATCH and then get PANCAKED by Dane. Dane on the other hand was getting to a knee holding his ribs for a moment before pushing up to his feet. He leaned down grabbed Kim by the head and sent her into the corner with an IRISH WHIP! Chasing behind her for a FOREARM STRIKE! He pulled her out of the corner and ducked low for a NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! He didn't bridge, instead, he rolled to his feet and pulled her into position in the corner. He went towards the ropes and lept up onto the top rope in a single bound! Turning around, he jumped off! Scrunching his body and extending out!Frog Splash
Mike Fisher: That athleticism is unreal
BUT KIM GOT HER KNEES UP AT THE LAST SECOND!
Scott James:Kim with the reflexes again.
BOUNCED off of her knees and to his feet holding his ribs. Dropping instantly to the ground, Kim got a surge of energy but that impact hurt her knee! Getting to her feet she stumbled backward and held it. Pounding on the knee with a fist to get some feeling back into it. She felt like she was wasting time letting this opportunity drift away with the passing seconds. She moved forward pushing herself off of the ropes and grasping Dane by the head and pulling him to his feet. Hopping, she tucked his head under her arm in a suplex position only to snap to the side on one leg! Snap Swinging Neckbreaker!!!
She went for the cover!
Dane got the shoulder up at the LAST SECOND and Kim just rolled to the side and tended to her knee. Holding it close and still throwing a fist onto it. Dane was seeing stars, his arms rising up and just flopping onto the canvas afterward. Kim got to her feet with a limp moving towards Dane. Pulling him up to a knee, then to his feet. Bringing him backward, she attempted to lift him up for a snap suplex but her leg gave out! She dropped Dane and he took advantage and rushed towards the ropes!
Mike Fisher: What's he thinking?
Dane looks for the spear but Kim Pain counters with a code breaker!!! They both lay exhausted on the mat for a minute but after a while Kim kicks herself up and receives a monstrous ovation from the fans in Manchester UK tonight. She feeds into the cheers as she stalks Dane as he makes it back to his first but still in a daze, as he turns around and he galls flat on his back Kim meets him with…
(Spinning heel kick to the jaw)
The heel kick connects to the temple of Dane and his eyes roll to the back of his head and he kands flat on his back as Kim Pain falls on top of him and the referred comes in to make the count.
Alice Goldier: Here is your winner by pinfall and advancing to the next round of the IIW International Tournament, Kim Pain!!!
Mike Fisher: Incredible win for Kim Pain tonight and I believe she's opened a lot of people's eyes of the type of competitor she is, we very well could be looking at the winner of this tournament.
Scott James: Let's not move so fast, Kim was impressive but there are a lot of rough competition reminding in her path and let's not forget how amazing Dane Preston was in this match, I felt like he could've won this match at any point had a few things bounced his way.
The referee raises Kims hand in the ring a the fans cheer her on with chants.
( Two high skilled wrestlers from all over the world meet in the first round of The IIW International Tournament and this one is be labeled as a banger as both Mac and Austin are known for their hard-hitting style and no mercy attitude. With the next round to Championship Gold on the line which one of these warriors will make it out the first round?)
Round One of The IIW International Tournament
Standard Singles Match
Austin Ramsey vs Mac Bane
The guitar solo starts, and Austin and Todrick step onto the stage, holding hands. The couple pause, and when they get to the center and Austin holds Todrick's hand up as she spins around and sways her hips, giving the crowd the view of why they call her "The Cutie With The Booty". Austin spins her and pulls her close to him as he steals a kiss.
The couple head down the ramp with their hands interlocked as Todrick waves to the crowd and blows them kisses. Austin slaps their hands when he isn't gazing at his wife. They make it to the bottom of the ramp, and Austin holds her hand as she climbs the stairs. He quickly releases her hand and steps onto the apron, and steps on the bottom rope as he pulls the middle rope up. Todrick smiles and bends over, giving the crowd another taste as she slowly enters the ring. Austin steps through the ropes and takes her arm as they make their way to the center of the ring. She puts her arms around his shoulders, and he puts his around her waist, and they dance to the beat of the music. He leans in and whispers something into her ear, which makes her light up.
Alice Goldier: Making his way to the ring, from Manhattan, NY, he weighs in at 168 lbs, I give you Austin Ramsey!!!!
They then face the crowd and hold their arms up as they soak in the love from the crowd in attendance. They then head to the side of the ring. Todrick stands in front of Austin, slowly moving her hips, and he stands behind her as they face the entrance ramp and the arena lights return to normal.
Mike Fisher: Austin Ramsey is one half of the WGWF Tag Champions and had had success and various other promotions and now tonight he looks to add to that resume by getting a win in the first round of the IIW International Tournament.
Scott James: Yeah Austin is looking for more gold but his opponent Mac Bane is also determined to make it past this round and onto the next.
The voice of Mac Bane, a soft Texas drawl - “I AIN’T NO SAINT BUT I AIN'T THE DEVIL EITHER!” Dressed in black leather pants, with Bane down the side, a black leather duster, and a black Stetson cowboy hat, he steps out onto the stage looking out over the crowd as the first chords of “The Enemy'' by Godsmack echo throughout the venue. His agent and “sister from another mister”, Kat Jones, joins him center stage. There is no pyro, just the house lights turned down a notch as they begin walking down the ramp.
Alice Goldier: Making his way to the ring, from Port Arthur, Texas, he weighs in at 280lbs,, I give you Mac Bane!!!!
Mike Fisher: Mac Bane is a multi World Champion, he's a legend in Sin City Wrestling and just recently defeated Bam Miller at the WGWF Wrestler Wars event, so by that information you know he can take a beating and dish out even more than you can give. I like Austin Ramsey but he's got one hell of a mountain to over come.
Approaching the ring steps, Bane waits for her to climb them first. He follows her slowly, he reaches the top step, and removes his black leather duster. He tosses it up on the turnbuckle as she enters the ring. He follows ducking between the top and middle rope. He takes the black stetson off and hands it to her. Kat puts the hat on as Mac turns to face the center of the ring. He acknowledges the fans and the referee and then throws both hands in the air, with the “Hook Em Horns” sign to the crowd. As he waits for his opponent and the crowd to die down, he makes his way to a neutral corner. No trace of emotion, he’s all business and everyone can see that plainly.
Both men would circle the ring, but not before shaking each others hand. This gave a rouse of to the crowd knowing these two men were about to put on a classic. They met in the middle of the ring with a COLLAR AND ELBOW TIE-UP! Both men jockeying for positions with Austin swinging his arm down and around Mac's head into a HEADLOCK! Swinging around for a REAR WAIST LOCK, Mac found himself trying to reach around. Instead, he moved down between his feet to take one of Austins legs out from under him. Turning around, Mac reached down and tried to yank Austin up but, Austin locked both of his hands as he was pulled up. He used his weight advantage to roll onto his back and MONEKY FLIP Mac over!

When Austin ran to the ropes Mac had enough time to hit the opposite side of the ropes. As Austin stomped forward he looked to the left and right. Instead Mac was behind him leaping up with his knees placed on the middle of his back. Pulling him down with a BACKSTABBER he pushed him off of his knees. He hit the middle rope and lept backwards towards Mikey who was arching his back trying to get rid of some of the pain from his back.

Mac didn’t go for the cover either. Instead he took to getting to his feet and playing towards the crowd. Bounding towards the turnbuckle he found himself climbing it.

Mike Fisher: Just not enough to keep The Cowboy down.
Mac got the shoulder up once more and Austin sat back on his knees. Getting to his feet he moved to tuck Macs head under his arm and lifted him into the air! As he was about to turn him, Mac let out a KNEE to the top of Austins head! Followed by one more. Austin dropped Mac on his feet and stumbled back. Mac didn’t take any warm up as he turned his body, stepped forward and thrusted his leg out and Superkick to the chin of Austin that sends him falling back towards the ropes and as they send him back.

( Osh has given his nephew a chance at a World Championship opportunity as Jay goes one on one with the newly crowned World Champion Joe Montouri who's not in the beat of mood after his Championship celebration was crashed last week by masked men. With revenge on his mind will Joe be able to stay focused and retain his Championship belt or will Jay take advantage of the distraction and become the new IIW World Champion?)

Alice Goldier: Making his way to the ring at 255lbs, from Bronx, NY and representing The Mecca. I give you the IIW World Heavyweight Champion, Twizted Thoughtz" Joe Montuori!!!!!!
Pyros shoot off like its the 4th of July. When the smoke clears, standing on the entrance way with a grin that all the fans cant stand. He walks down the aisle to cheers and boos and just laughs it off. When he gets into the ring, he climbs up the top turnbuckle, looks around then raises his arms like he is the king of the world.
The match starts off with the two IIW Superstars walking around each other in circles, before going for the hold-up. It’s Jay Vaughan with the advantage, pushing JMont toward the turnbuckle. Jay throws his fore arm smack-dab onto JMont’s face, before throwing him onto the mat and squeezing an arm around his neck. Headlock time.
Mike Fisher: The World champ is off to an auspicious slow start here
Scott James: I’m sure he’ll turn it round
Moments later, JMont elbows Jay in the stomach, getting out of the headlock. There’s then a series of assorted punches and kicks that Jay can’t avoid, before JMont gets him with a hell of a sharp gut kick. With Jay bent over, JMont quickly bounces off the ropes, and dropkicks him. Jay gets up to his feet rather quickly, though he’s in a doozy, only to be met with ANOTHER kick to the gut, though not as sharp. It didn’t need to be, as JMont is quick to drop Jay to the mat with an arm trap DDT!
Scott James : I did tell you!
Just as Jay Vaughan gets up to his feet, JMont is right there with the spinning calf kick!
JMont goes for the cover.
Jay Vaughan kicks out!
Mike Fisher: Jay Vaughan is seriously reminding me of watching his dad when I was younger.
Scott James: You’re Osh’s uncle, we get it!
JMont brings Jay up to his feet, only to give him an arm trap suplex. It’s not long before he executes the standing moonsault! Once again, JMont brings Jay up to his feet only to irish whip him onto the nearby turnbuckle.
Backing up, JMont moves his head around before running forward… Though however, the knee strike hits air. Jay moved away in the nick of time. Just as JMont turns around, he is met with a hell of a big boot. Slowly, JMont gets up to his feet feeling the effects of the boot, only for Jay to drop his head to the mat with a gutbuster DDT. Bouncing off the ropes slowly, Jay then jumps up and delivers a leg drop.
Jay lifts JMont about halfway before dropping him with Lifeline, commonly known as the reverse DDT. Cover!
JMont kicks out!
Mike Fisher: JMont having the advantage wasn’t going to last long.
Scott James: That was a fairly close call!
Jay is waiting patiently as JMont gets up to his feet somewhat slowly, before running forward with a forearm smash. This doesn’t get JMont to fall down just yet, so Jay delivers a clothesline! The move gets JMont falling onto the ropes, and running forward, sliding in-between Jay’s legs. As Jay turns around in surprise, JMont is right there with a leg lariat!
Mike Fisher: How in God’s name did JMont do that?! He cheated!
Scott James: It’s adrenaline!
Jay gets up again, barely moving out of the way from the dropkick as he falls onto the ropes. Quickly getting JMont up to his feet, Jay then wraps his arms around him and throws him around with the belly to back suplex. Jay waits several moments for JMont to get up to his feet before getting his hands around him for the JAYB….
JMont pushes him, which gets Jay going towards the ropes. Bouncing back, he ducks the clothesline, only to be met with a hell of a clothesline that gets him dropping to the mat with an audible thud. Getting up to his feet, JMont is right there to drop him to the mat once again with a spinning neckbreaker.
JMont jumps onto the top rope quickly, settling himself in a matter of seconds, before jumping off and hitting the springboard JKO!
Scott James: J . K. O.
JMont goes for the cover!
Alice Goldier: Here is your winner and still IIW World Heavyweight Champion, Twizted Thoughtz" Joe Montuori!!!!!!
Mike Fisher: Big win for The Mecca tonight, as the group continues to look impressive heading towards Worlds Collide.
Scott James: Well The Mecca is in good hands with THE CHAMPION leading them to victory.
JMont raises his Championship into the air as Osh comes down the ramp to check on his nephew.
Mike Fisher: Osh looks concerned for his nephew right now.
Scott James: Oh cry me a river, Osh wants concerned when he booked this matchz
Mike Fisher: He was just trying to give his nephew an opportunity.
Scott James: Well its looks like that backfired.
Osh kneels down next to Jay and then puts Jays arm around his neck and helps him up on his feet but as soon as he does Jmont nails Jay in the head with the Chmpionship belt and then laughs in Osh face.
Mike Fisher: The most disgusting Champion we've ever had!
Osh and Jmont start talking trash to each other while Jay lays there lifeless. Jmont then kicks at Jay and then Osh gives him a push and for a moment it looks like Jmont is about to snap.of the won't of the company but before he can Shaun Hart slide into the ring and hits Osh with a low blow that brings home.own to his knee and then Jmont hits the JKO on him. Shaun kneels down towards Osh and starts talking trash before continuing the assuakt with hard punches to the face.
Mine Fisher: Osh and Jay need some help out here! Where is the rest of Team Osh?!
The hard cam switches to the back where Bam and Goliath have locked Max Stone, Scotty Adams, and Tyler Debonair in the locker room by barricading the door. Bam and Golisth laugh at their handwork and then give a wink to the camera as we return to the ring.
Scott James: There is no help coming for Osh right now I can bet you that.
Shaun stand Osh up a she talks trash to him and then delivers a slap that could be heard across the world and then throws him towards Jmont who nails Osh with a JKO!
Mike Fisher: Ok you Two you've made your point!
Scott James: Better close your eyes because I didn't think it's over.
Shaun goes out of yeh ring to looking under the ring for something. After a couple of months of searching, Shaun slides out a sledgehammer and then back inside the ring with a sinister look on his face.
Mike Fisher: I don't like the look of this.
The Champion stands Osh back up as best as he can as Osh legs Harley keep him up. Shaun looks Osh dead in his eyes and tells him at Worlds Collide I will be the Last Man Standing and then in War Games Mecca will secure its hold on this company forever. After the word sleeve his mouth Osh decks Oshw with the sledgehammer and then Osh crumbles to the ground but Shaun isn't done as he stands over Osh and raises the sledgehammer high above his head and looks to smack it into the back of Osh but at the last minute Jay jumps on top of Osh and take some blow for him.
Mike Fisher: Great save by Jay but man did he pay dearly for it.
Shaun looks annoyed at the save at first but as he looks down at the fallen and beaten Vaughn family his face lights up with a smile and starts laughing with The World Champion Jmont as the show closes out.
And the whole roster for putting together a fantastic show
