Harrys: Ladies and gentlemen, damas y caballeros, please now stand for the national anthems of both the United States of America and Spain!

Copeland: Welcome ladies and gentlemen to The Camp Nou in beautiful Barcelona, Spain and home of Kingdom Come IX! We have a packed show from top to bottom. I am Sebastian Copeland, the voice of WZCW. Tonight, in stunning Spain, WZCW endeavours to bring you some of the biggest and best wrestling action in the world. Tonight is Kingdom Come 9 and, Jack, the lights are on bright!
Cohen: Absolutely, Seabass! This event marks the ninth time that you and I have sat by this desk and welcome folks to the biggest show of the year. What a tremendous card we have for you all here tonight. So many big matches with so much on the line. Mark my words people, this is a night you will long remember.
As the commentators welcome us, a magical and spectacular scene greets us. The camera pans around the huge stadium and then settles on the ring. There, a few beautiful and exotic women dance in traditional dresses. Every now and again, they waltz between three men with bullfighting costumes on – red capes in hand – showing the tradition and beauty of Spanish dance. Upon the stage, red and yellow fireworks shoot off into the sky, lighting up the Spanish skyline and bringing massive cheers from the already excited assembled fans. The fireworks continue to shoot off as, on the stage, similarly coloured pyro lines the superb stage set. Suddenly, it seems to pick a little as more and more fireworks shoot off until a sudden and beautiful crescendo builds. The dancers come to a halt and get a massive cheer from the fans.
Connor: Wow! An incredible movement from these dancers to get the night underway, Jack. I must admit, Kingdom Come fever has hit me all at once. As I sit here tonight, I think about all of the epic matches that we have to offer these fans tonight.
Cohen: So true, Cat. Like I said, I have sat at this table for 8 Kingdom Come events before and I can honestly say that the stakes could not be any higher here tonight.
Copeland: Well put, Jack. We have 7 matches for you tonight, all of which will bring there own brand of personality, brutality and history to what promises to be an excellent night. The stars are out in Barcelona tonight as Kingdom Come fever reaches a fever pitch.
The camera pulls away from the announcers on to the front row where we see Antonio Banderas, Clara Alonso & Fernando Alonso sitting in the V.I.P. section with all of them cheering right along with the rest of the fans.
Copeland: The beautiful country of Spain is ready. These fans in the Camp Nou are ready, ladies and gentlemen. We are ready! The only question left to answer is are you ready?

Copeland: Well, ladies and gentlemen, do we have a rare treat for you. As the crew finish setting up something spectacular on stage, we are being told that Mark Keaton and Triple X have devised something very memorable for us...
The lights go out in the arena as I Hope You Suffer begins with the quiet, uncomfortable opening. As the song kicks into gear with guitar and drums, white lights flash and pulse all around the arena. Triple X appears on the stage, looking out to the audience in attendance with a look of pure hatred in his eyes. He walks down the ramp with purpose, he stops and starts yelling at a nearby fan with a Live Mas sign. He turns to continue his entrance when his music suddenly stops, he has a really annoyed look on his face as he slowly turns around......
An over heavy metal version of The Imperial March thrums in the background as smoke rolls out on the stage completely covering it. A red figure with a helmet slowly walks through the smoke, still heavily covered in fog as to make him out is impossible. The Imperial March slowly fades away and the darkness just shows the fog now, no tron or lights of any kind.... a red lightsaber beam activates in the fog, then is folded and turns into a red electric guitar.....
All corners of the stage explode in white pyro and flames as the fog gets sucked away off stage, Remarkable Mark Keaton is playing his LED laced electric guitar in a red Darth Vader costume on, complete with huge spiked shoulders and LED lightning all over the red cape. Every strum of his guitar sends out a fireball to the sky. Big Bad Roady follows RMK down the ramp in a heavy biker jacket. A huge rain of sparks falls in the background. RMK walks next to Triple X wildly playing the guitar, Triple X takes the prop guitar out of Mark's hands and throws it back towards the stage. He yells at him and points to the ring. RMK rips off his red helmet and gets in Triple X's face, Big Bad Roady gets in between both men and guides them closer to the ring. Both men eventually slide in the ring and start warming up for the match.
Copeland: Wow, that really was something special!
Cohen: Well of course it was, Seabass. Did you really think that someone like Mark Keaton would have an entrance to Kingdom Come that was anything less that, well... Remarkable!?
Harrys: Introducing first, the team of Remarkable Mark Keaton and Triple X!
After the noise and effects from Keaton and X's entrance, the crowd starts to die down a little, though that doesn't stop the two from trying to continue to rile up the crowd.
Cohen: This is why I like these two. They don't put on some song and dance routine to try make people like them. They just go out and tell it like it is.
Connor: The roof is about to come off of this place though Jack, when Ma.....
Cohen: We are in an outdoor stadium, there is no roof Cat.
Connor: Figure of speech Jack. When Matt and Mikey, the first team of Hall of Famers to teams up at Kingdom Come, walk through that curtain, the crowd is going to explode.
Copeland: It will be a historical moment indeed. Matt Tastic a Grand Slam champion, multi time World Champ. Record setting Mayhem champ. Mikey Stormrage, Triple Crown winner. Multi time World Champ as well. Record setting tag champion. Both Hall of Famers. Both have headlined Kingdom Come in the past. The anticipation is growing.
A few more moments pass, Keaton and Triple X start to look impatient.
Cohen: It looks like the cowards aren't going to show. Maybe fat ass got stuck in a doorway or they got held up at customs for smuggling fire sauce.
Suddenly the lights go down, only the glow of the tron visible.
On the screen we see the speech lead singer Chester Bennington gave during the live performance. As he speaks of musicians, images of not just that, but also wrestlers, sports athletes and artists flash through the screen. As the music picks up, smoke fills the stage. People surround it. Hooded and wearing white, expressionless masks. They grab their heads. Seeming to be in pain. But who can tell with no expression? As the guitar riff picks up we see two different people. They emerge on stage. Armed. Covered in gear. Also masked. But there's something to those masks. Color. Lots of it. Live Mas appears.
Holding riot shields and batons, the duo stands ready to take on anything. The batons spark at the tips and they lift them up. The hooded figures, seeing the illumination from the entrance, turn to it and remove their hoods and take off their masks. Men & women of different ethnicities and orientations can be seen. They stand firm, watching as Live Mas makes their way down the aisle. The two slowly walk down the aisle as on the screen images of many flash. People who have died by some mental condition. Some by suicide. Along those we also see celebrities like Chester himself, Avicii, Anthony Bourdain, Chris Cornell and others. As Live Mas slowly make their way into the ring, they take their off masks and flack jackets. They turn to the titantron and kneel in silence and respect. The fans go from cheering to respectful silence. The screen fades and the two stand proudly. The fans go back to cheering.
Connor: Live Mas, sporting riot gear and rainbow masks, in a message of inclusion and hope, as this crowd is on fire.
Cohen: Leave it to these guys to include rainbows, further confusing us all. I have to say though, a touching moment as they knelt in silence to honor those who have fallen.
Copeland: You heard the moving speech that Mikey gave at last night's Hall Of Fame. These two have always been public about their struggle, and tonight, they wear it as a badge of honor into battle as they encourage the entire world to just live more.
Finally, all four men are in the ring and the first match of Kingdom Come IX can get underway. The referee makes his final checks and calls for the opening bell of the event.
Copeland: It seems a long time ago that this match build started. But, truthfully, there are very few matches tonight that have gotten as personal as this one. Triple X and Keaton havr proved to be more than a match for a long-established team. They hate Live Mas down to the core and tonight is their chance to prove, without a doubt, that they are better than the 'outdated' duo.
Connor: There has been so much talk before this match but all the talking stops now, folks. This match is going to heat up in a hurry, that much I can personally promise you. This is a match that any team can win but neither can afford to lose.
Mikey and Matt go into the corner of the ring to discuss who is going to start the match but, almost immediately, Keaton and Triple X are on them – rushing from across the ring and attacking them mercilessly. Keaton runs straight into Stormrage, thrusting him shoulder first into the turn-buckles. X smashes Tastic with a flying forearm that sends the Hall of Fame superstar through the ropes and crashing to the floor below. Without hesitation, Keaton and X begin laying into Stormrage in the corner of the ring. The referee tries his best to get them to separate and go to their own corner to start the match but the thoughts of Keaton and X are clearly not on fighting a fair match from the start. Stormrage relents and falls into the corner of the ring on his portly ass. Keaton and X begin stomping the new Hall of Fame superstar as the crowd get on them early in the match. After a good thirty seconds of pure punishment, Tastic begins to re-emerge on the apron of the ring. X sees him coming to help and quickly douses that fire with water as he bounces off of the far ropes and then lands a stunning running drop-kick that sends Tastic flying off of the apron again and crashing into the security barrier. The crowd are on their feet and booing loudly as, for the first time tonight, their blood begins to boil at what is unfolding in the ring. The two allies go into the centre of the ring and hold their hands high in the air, celebrating their early efficiency in this match. The crowd don't take too kindly to what they are seeing but it matters very little to the dominant faction right now.
Copeland: What a dastardly start from Keaton and Triple X, Jack! Have you every seen a start of a match like this at any Kingdom Come so far?
Cohen: Not that I can remember, Seabass. But the fact of the matter is that Keaton and Triple X are, once again, showing that they have the chops to hang with a former tag team championship pairing. No one was expecting that sort of start to the match but who is paying for it now and who is reaping the rewards of it? Seems pretty sound in my book.
Connor: Sound, yes. Respectable? Definitely not! It's disgusting!
Finally, the ring is home to just two wrestlers as X steps out onto the apron and takes his place on the outside of the ring. The damage seems to be already done to Mikey Stormrage, however, and Mark Keaton knows it. There is a massive smile on his face as he begins making his way across the ring towards the fallen Live Mas superstar. Keaton give Big Roady a nod and the enforcer in his corner begins to make a distraction on the outside of the ring, climbing up onto the apron and getting the ref's attention straight away. The referee hurries over to Roady as Keaton makes sure the coast is clear for more punishment to be doled out. As the referee argues with Roady on the other side of the ring, Keaton takes his boot and drives it into the throat of Mikey as Tastic pleads with the referee to turn around and see what is going on. After a few seconds of sheer pain and squirming from Stormrage, Roady finally drops down from the canvas and the referee turns back around – just as Keaton takes his boot off of the throat of his opponent. The crowd are incensed by what has happened so far but it shows no signs of letting up just yet. Tastic still hasn't recovered from his two terrible landings earlier in the contest, so Stormrage seems to be at the mercy of his opponents. Eventually, Keaton pulls Mikey to his weary feet and whips him across the ring. With no question or hesitation, X smashes Stormrage with a stunning right hand that sends him back to the canvas. A few stomps later from Keaton and the first legal tag of the match is made to bring X into the match. The crowd are still booing but it isn't doing Mikey any favours.
Cohen: I really wish these fans would shut the Hell up in here, I can barely even hear myself think. Can they not see that Mark Keaton are doing the work of those who should have done it sooner – taking Mikey and Matt behind the woodshed and putting them out of their damned misery.
Copeland: I feel as though we have said this so many times before but you would be a fool to write off Mikey and Matt right now, Jack. The heart that they have is like nothing I have ever witnessed in a WZCW ring.
Cohen: Great load of good that heart is doing them right now, Seabass! Ha!
X immediately picks up where Keaton left off, nailing Mikey with a few stomps as Mikey struggles to get into the match. X smiles widely as he grabs Mikey by the hair and begins pulling him back to a vertical base. The crowd finally get a reprieve as Mikey lands a stiff punch to the gut of X on the way up. Another one follows very soon after as Mikey begins laying into his opponent and trying to turn the tide. Mikey finally stands straight up for the first time in the match and goes to nail X with a stiff right to the face. X is ready for it though and ducks under the flailing arm of his opponent. As Mikey spins around X nails him instantly with a beautiful drop kick that sends him flying across the ring again and into the same corner as before. X kips up and gives the fans something else to 'cheer' about as he raises both of his hands quickly to get himself hyped up. Keaton gives Roady the signal again to cause a distraction and the enforcer does his duty once more. He hops up on the canvas once more as the referee rushes over to him once again. X smiles as he moves towards Mikey and pulls him to his feet. He goes to raise his boot to the throat of his opponent but is quickly met with a stunning right hand that sends him to the canvas and seems to knock him unconscious. The referee is still tied up with Road on the other side of the ring as Keaton rushes into the ring to take on Mikey and maintain the momentum. Suddenly, however, Matt goes under the bottom ropes and heads off Keaton – giving him the same treatment as X just got – knocking him on his ass and busting him up in the process. Matt stands over Keaton as Mikey hobbles towards him. The two of them face each other, slowly pull their Hall of Fame rings from their fingers and stash them in their tights. The crowd are on their feet and rapturous as the tide finally turns in favour of the good guys.
Connor: What just happened?! One punch couldn't have did that surely?
Copeland: Let's have a closer look at that, ladies and gentlemen...
Connor: Yeah, Triple X and Keaton aren't bending the rules are they, Jack? They got what was coming to them and this match is finally on a level playing field.
The referee finally gets Roady down from the apron and witnesses the destruction that has taken place whilst he was distracted. No sign of the weapons used against X or Keaton, so the match continues. Tastic slowly rolls Keaton out of the ring as Mikey goes for the pin fall. He hooks the leg of X as the referee gets in position. It seems like an endless amount of time as the referee begins the count. 1... 2... Kick out from X in the nick of time! Mikey sits up after the near fall and runs his hands through his hair in frustration. He doesn't seem to be totally recovered from the early attack on him but at least he is able to pull himself to his feet. He waits in the corner for Tastic to come back and eventually tags in his tag team partner. The crowd go wild as the grand slam champion makes his way into the match for the first time. Tastic seems very energetic as he hops over the top rope and grabs X by the hair and pulls him to his feet. He backs X up into the corner and begins chopping his chest with devastating accuracy and power. The crowd cannot contain themselves as Live Mas show their fighting spirit again to climb back into this match and show X and Keaton a little of the treatment they undoubtedly deserve. Tastic whips X across the ring into the far corner and then follows him across the ring, nailing him with a beautiful running clothesline that sends X out of the corner. Tastic follows up with spinning wheel kick to the back oh his opponent's head. X hits the canvas quickly as Tastic tries to roll him over. Tastic goes for the cover but can only get a count of 1 before Keaton gets into the ring and nails him with a stiff stomp to break up the count.
Copeland: So close, ladies and gentlemen. In fact, had it not been for the awareness of Mark Keaton there, this match might have been in the history books.
Cohen: What a great tag team Triple X and Mark Keaton make, Seabass. Don't forget that they are in the ring with two highly decorated superstars that have been a team for years. They are battling against the odds and a blatantly biased referee and still hanging on in there.
Connor: Give it a break, Jack, it's going to be a long night...
The referee pounces back to his feet and tells Keaton to get out of the ring but Keaton is making as much of it as he can – an effort to give X a moment to catch his breath. Tastic walks towards Keaton – an action enough to hurry the Remarkable superstar along. As Tastic goes back towards X, the straight edge superstars grabs his tights and rolls him up for a quick pin-fall. The referee shoots to the canvas as the crowd takes a sharp intake of breath. X holds the tights for extra leverage. 1... 2... Kick out at the last possible moment! Both men get to their feet quickly and begin leathering each other with stiff right hands – almost reminiscent of a hockey fight. For what seems like minutes, both men continually throw punches at each other until, finally, Tastic gets the better of the exchange with a knee to the gut of his opponent. The crowd cheers as if Live Mas won the match in that exchange. But their cheering is put on hold as X reverses the Irish whip of Matt and sends Tastic across the ring instead. Tastic ducks under the arm of X on the way back – hitting the ropes once more. But for all of the agility and ring-sense of the Live Mas superstar, he cannot avoid the cross-body that meets him as he returns once more. Both men are lying on the canvas and it is anyone's game as to who takes control of the match from now on. Both superstars have taken a fair amount of punishment now and it could go either way.
Connor: A pivotal moment in this match, ladies and gentlemen! Who can take control of this match so late on? You'd have to think that whoever does will be in an excellent position to put the result to bed and win what would be a stunning victory.
Cohen: Come on X, get there!
Both men begin crawling across the ring in an attempt to make it to their partners as the crowd begin groaning with tension – it is truly palpable. X is the quicker of the two and gets the tag to Keaton but Matt still has a bit to go. Just as Matt is about to make it to Mikey, Roady jumps up on the apron to call the ref's attention to something. The crowd boo as the referee, for the third time, rushes towards Roady and completely misses the tag between the Live Mas superstars! By the time, Roady gets down from the apron, Keaton is upon Tastic and is laying into him like the he did to Stormrage in the opening moments. Mikey tries to get into the ring after his tag but the referee stops him as he didn't see the tag. The crowd continue to get frustrated as Keaton grabs Matt by the hair and pulls him mercilessly towards the middle of the ring and away from his salvation of a tag. The crowd cannot believe what they are seeing but Keaton and X are doing an amazing job of covering their tracks and there is nothing the fans can do about it. Keaton continues to punish Tastic by dropping an elbow to his gut that sends Tastic's body into a state of shock. Keaton gets back to his feet an then drops a leg over the chest of Tastic – following up with a cover of his own but only manages a count of 2 before Tastic rolls the shoulder.
Cohen: SO CLOSE, DAMN IT!
Copeland: I have to give credit where it is due tonight, Jack. Just when you think that X and Keaton are out of this match and Tastic and Stormrage are regaining control, they rise to the challenge. They haven't been the most fair of opponents but I am certainly sure that they have claimed the respect and attention of Live Mas now. Keaton and X are for real.
Connor: I don't like it but they are acting like a formidable team at the moment. Their timing is like nothing I have ever seen. They are bending the rules but they are making it work and making light work of their opponents.
Keaton looks raging that he couldn't get the job done in that exchange but knows that he needs to continue what he is doing or all the momentum will be lost. Keaton pulls Matt to his feet and whips him off of the ropes. Somehow, Tastic slides through the legs of his opponent on the way back, finds his feet for a second and launches himself towards Mikey's outstrecthed hand. The tag is made and the crowd burst back into life. Keatona adopts a look of sheer confusion and anger as Mikey comes through the ropes and immediately nails him with a stunning clothesline that takes him down. X gets into the ring but is met with the same fate. Keaton gets back to his feet but is quickly met with a beautiful back body drop that sends him crashing to the canvas. X gets back to his feet but is punished for it with another back body drop. With both men lying next to each other on the canvas, Mikey hits the ropes and then launches himself through the air – connecting with both men in a cannon ball like fashion – all of his weight crashing down on the chests of his two opponents.
Copeland: Stunning stuff from Mikey! This is a promising time for Live Mas! Can they finally claim the momentum in this match and, more importantly, hold onto it for more than a few minutes?
Connor: You are right, Seabass, this is stunning stuff from Mikey. Summoning all of that heart and putting it to good use against his opponents. That's why he's in the Hall of Fame!
Cohen: Give me a break you two...
Mikey gets back to his feet and yells out to the crowd as a look of intensity crosses his features. He signals to the audience that this match is going to end very soon and the crowd go wild once more. Mikey looks so pissed off and intense that it doesn't take a lot to believe him. Mikey hoists Keaton back to his feet as X rolls towards the edge of the ring. It looks as though Mikey is going to land the GAME OVER to end this match but, once again, Roady jumps onto the apron. Mikey has no choice but to drop Roady's boss in fear of being under attack once again. The referee has lost it with Roady now and to the sheer jubilation of the assembled masses, orders Roady up the ramp and out of the match. Mikey's eyes light up as Roady argues with the referee but begins making his way up the ramp and towards the back. Mikey goes back to Keaton, attempting to hoist him back to his feet. But that is cut short as X comes from behind him and goes to nail him with a double-axe handle to the back of Mikey's head. Suddenly, however, Matt rushes across the ring and throws himself at X – causing both of them to shoot through the ropes and crash to the unprotected floor below. Both men crash ominously but there is more happening in the meantime. The distraction from Roady and X seems to have worked as Keaton grabs the trousers of Mikey and rolls him up into a small package! The crowd cannot believe it as the referee begins to count! 1... 2... KICK OUT!
Cohen: Come on, Ref! Count the damn fall! Are you kidding me?
Copeland: So close but in better news for Matt and Mikey, Big Bad Roady has now been summoned out of here for the duration of the match. This match is finally on a level playing field.
Both men struggle to their feet after the attempted pin fall. Keaton goes for a lariat but Mikey, somehow, manages to duck under the arm of his opponent. Mikey grabs Keaton and plants him with a spinning Samoan Drop that almost breaks the ring. Mikey feels the moment in his bones and begins pulling himself up to a vertical base. He looks down at Keaton breathlessly and tells the crowd that this match is over. But instead of pulling Keaton to his feet and nailing him with the GAME OVER, Mikey begins going up to the top rope. The fans cannot believe what they are seeing as the heavyweight makes his way to the top rope and then turns around to face them. There is a tension in the air as Mikey towers over his opponent facing the other way. Suddenly, like a blue whale making itself known above the crest of a wave, Mikey launches himself off of the top and lands the most majestic and stunning moonsault that you have ever seen. The ring shakes with the impact of the move. The referee counts the fall! 1... 2... 3! It's all over! Live Mas have done it!
Harrys: Here are your winners, the team of Matt Tastic is Mikey Stormrage... LIVE MAS!!
Copeland: I don't believe it but I knew that they could do it! What a fantastic match to open up Kingdom Come in Barcelona tonight.
Connor: Absolutely, Seabass. I don't like the way they went about it but Mark Keaton and Triple X pushed Live Mas all the way tonight. Live Mas have teamed for years and could have went down swinging against a young and hungry team. However, at the end of the day, Live Mas showed their resilience and heart in the most special way. For those who have questioned whether Live Mas should still be competing at the highest level, there is your answer. Stunning stuff.
Cohen: Meh! Their day will come, Cat. You mark my words.
Matt climbs back into the ring and hugs Mikey in the middle of the ring. The crowd go wild as they hold each other's arm up in celebration. Both men have wide smiles on their face as the screen fades – their celebrations casting a lasting impression on the screen.

We cut to a shot of the three WZCW commentators as Jack Cohen shakes his head in denial of what he has just witnessed. All three are dressed in smart outfits to mark the biggest event of the WZCW calendar.
Copeland: Well, the first match is in the books here tonight, ladies and gentlemen. Live Mas came into this match as favourites I would say. To the delight of the thousands in here tonight, they have beaten their opponents and got the first win of the evening. Incredible match.
Cohen: Yeah, if you say so, Seabass...
Connor: I agree with you, Jack, a good first match to get us up and running. Now though, it is time to find out who will be leaving Barcelona as the Elite Openweight Champion. For weeks, folks, WZCW has seen the completion of it's first ever Elite Openweight Leagues. Each grouping was made up of multiple opponents, who each wrestled each other once. The winner of the match gained three points and the winners of each group headed towards the Elite Openweight Championship match.
Cohen: Yeah, with the exception of Lynx you mean. Another travesty, if you ask me.
Copeland: Would you please lighten up, Jack?
Cat gives a slight laugh to herself as Jack shakes his head and slams his hands down on the desk in frustration.
Copeland: So that makes a fatal-4-way match, ladies and gentlemen. Callie Clark defends her beloved Championship against Lynx, Randy Studd and Wren. The winner of the match will have earned their Championship and will leave her with the first piece of WZCW gold on offer.
Connor: That match, folks, is up next!

Backstage, a door swings open to reveal the man who will challenge Titus Avison for the EurAsian Championship later on tonight – John Constantine. Constantine, unusually, is not dressed in his ring gear but is, instead, dressed head to toe in a wonderful black satin suit. Constantine walks inside the room as someone else walks into shot from the other side – The Elite Steven Holmes. Constantine smiles widely as he extends a hand to Holmes. Holmes knocks his hand out of the way and instead embraces Constantine like an old friend.
Constantine: It's great to see you, Steven. Congratulations on your achievement last night.
Holmes: And to you, John. I did think it was very funny that, after all we had been through, that we both went into the Hall of Fame on the same night. It seems that, no matter how far we go or how much we do, our careers will always be intertwined.
Constantine and Holmes share a laugh as Constantine pats Holmes on the shoulder of his own magnificent suit. From out of shot, an uneven and curious voice breaks up the reunion of the old friends.
Stormrage: Uh, guys... How do these trousers go on? Can someone get in here and give me a hand?
Constantine and Holmes look at each with a look or horror on their faces – the thought of Mikey's sweaty posterior frightening them thoroughly.
Holmes: I've worked with Abel Hunnicut but that is still the most frightening thing I can think of in WZCW...
With that, Holmes and Constantine share a coy laugh and head out of the room.
Stormrage: Seriously, guys, I'm in real trouble here!
Copeland: Well the Elite League has come to an end and the winners have their chance to take on the hot potato duo of Lynx and Callie Clark.
Connor: It's been an exciting league, Wren has had a complete resurgence and she's a brand new woman.
Cohen: I also don't think you can discount Randy Studd. He continues to grow and being a former Mayhem champion adds a bit of chaos into the mix.
Copeland: Then there's the man who fancies himself the hero of WZCW who is being mentored by another who fancied himself the hero of WZCW. The former champion Lynx cannot be discounted.
Connor: It does make me wonder what happened to Tiffany Wyatt?
Cohen/Copeland: Shut up. I don't think we can talk about her!
Harrys: The following contest is a Four Way match and it is for the WZCW Elite Openweight Championship! Introducing first from Parts Unknown, she is Wren!!
The arena is in complete darkness as Wren's music plays. The stage is filled with smoke and bit by bit, lights illuminate and circle the arena, looking for Wren. One finally spots her, already on the turnbuckle in the ring.
Copeland: One of the winners of the Elite League that ran throughout the last two months. Wren has been one who has had big moments but never been able to fully capitalize.
Connor: This could be her night. In this type of match where you can surprise someone to win, she appears in the ring out of darkness.
A countdown appears on stage as the music plays. It reaches zero as the song hits the "Final Countdown" chorus. Off of a cloud of smoke, Lynx appears on one knee, his fists holding his frame off the sides. He slowly gets up before marching to the ring.
From Times Unknown, weighing 204 pounds, he is.... The Melanistic Jaguar.... Lynx!
Connor: Since the Roulette Rounds Lynx has been facing Callie Clark multiple times over the Elite title. In that exchange, Clark was able to become the first ever three time Elite Champion in company history. Lynx tonight has a chance to be #2 in that list.
Cohen: We'll see but Lynx being mentored by Theron has no seemed to do him any favors.
Copeland: We'll see about that. Who knows with four people in this match.
Randy Studd appears on stage with a towel wrapped around his waist as women in masquerade masks surround him and throw sheets pulled off a clipboard as if they were petals. Studd takes the towel off and places it over his shoulder as he walks down the aisle and into the ring.
Cohen: Look at this man. The other winner of the Elite League. A former two time Mayhem Champion and now going for the Elite title after dominating the League.
Connor: Not gonna lie. No one expected him to win it. But here he is.
Copeland: .....our cue is coming up....
Gabi Clark appears on stage, dressed as Mantis from Guardians of the Galaxy. She has her hands together and looks around.
Copeland: Where's Gamora?
Connor: I’ll do you even better: who is Gamora?
Cohen: I’ll do you one better: Why is Gamora?
With that, Callie Clark appears on stage. Painted green with a sword on her shoulder and the Elite Openweight title on her waist. Gabi points her to the ring and tries to put her hand on her sister but is stopped with a finger wagging
Their opponent, from Titan by way of Zen-Whoben, she is the Baddest Woman In The Galaxy, the only three time and current, defending WZCW Elite Openweight Champion, Callie Clark~!!
Referee Katie Shepard lifts the title up in the air to showcase that it is on the line and with everything set, the bell rings.
*Ding Ding Ding*
Right away, Callie bails to the floor and both Wren and Lynx kick Studd as he falls out of the ring. Wren and Lynx go at it exchanging blows back and forth. Wren ducks a Clothesline and hits a Dropkick to Lynx who bounces off the ropes but Callie is there and snaps his neck off them. She leaps into the ring with a Tornado DDT to him and tries a quick cover but Wren kicks her in the ribs. Wren grabs Callie and tosses her out of the ring but Studd is back in the ring. And starts to flirt with Wren who goes from focused to completely stunned.
Connor: And he's off. It's a major title in the biggest show in the year and he gets off track.
Copeland: Old habits die hard, I guess.
Studd surprises her though by hitting her with a Spinebuster. We cut to the commentators who are just stunned.
Cohen: ............ It's a trap!
Studd goes for the cover quickly, not even bothering with the leg. 1......- But there's Callie breaking it up by jumping on him with an axe handle. Studd gets up and all for contestants are there. Wren also gets up, clutching her neck and we get a big staredown between the four. They have a massive brawl with fists and feet going in every direction. Studd tries to throw Callie out of the ring but she bends to one knee and uses the change in leverage to toss him out instead but as she turns around Lynx rams Wren into her and the two women fall outside. Gabi Clark stands in front of the pile trying to root Callie on. The three get up as Lynx motivates himself. He dashes across the ropes and leaps into the ring apron. Off it, he springboards off the ropes and turns in mid air into a Phoenix Splash on top of the four outside.
Copeland: Beautiful display of athleticism by Lynx looking to become Champion here tonight.
Cohen: What did Gabi do to deserve being hurt?
Connor: Stand in the middle of the way. No one put her there.
The first into the ring happens to be Wren. She sees her own opportunity and decides to go for it. She dashes across the ring herself but as she turns Randy Studd has returned to the ring and catapults her over the ropes, sending her flying over and on to Lynx, Callie and Gabi on the ringside area who catch her and fall. Studd begins to hop in place, as if he's motivating himself. He runs off the ropes, he seems ready......... and stops to get on the ring apron. Then drops from it with a Double Sledge onto....... No one, Callie kicks him mid-air in the ribs. She drags herself into the ring and crawls across it after the carnage that just ensued. She sits by the corner and begs the referee to start counting. Something that obviously doesn't work. Lynx gets into the ring and that just frustrated Callie even more.
Connor: She's dressed like Gamora but I gotta imagine she feels more like The Hulk right now. It's Lynx standing across from her once again.
Cohen: He's been an utter thorn in her side. He just won't stop.
Connor: Him? Callie doesn't stop either.
Callie confronts her rival and the two face off. She mouths off at him but Lynx stares at her fiercely. She kicks him in the shin but he retaliates with a chop to her upper chest. They continue the exchange over and over as Wren and Studd return to the ring. Lynx and Callie then turn back to back with each other. Lynx gives Studd the chops and Callie kicks Wren as the two rivals almost seem to be working together but swings with a Reverse Roundhouse Kick. Callie ducks it and the kick catches Lynx in the back of the head. Callie tosses Wren against Studd who catches her and seems to hug her accidentally. The two stare at each other awkwardly but as we focus on that, Callie appears on screen with a Missile Dropkick to both of them. Studd falls out of the ring and Callie grabs Wren. Callie tries Lights Out but Wren gets out of it and hits an Enzuigiri. Callie staggers and follows it up with a Michinoku Driver, hooking one of Callie's legs. 1....... 2........ but Lynx re-enters the fray and saves the match. Studd is right behind him and hits him with a Dropkick. He then follows it up with a DDT to Callie. He makes his way to the ropes and climbs them. He leaps with a Money Shot but is intercepted with a Springboard Stunner to him in mid-air.
Connor: Oh my God! She caught him in the air like that! She may have just broken his jaw!
Copeland: They are going so fast. I am stunned at how they are able to keep going at such a break neck pace.
Cohen: It's the will to win. They'll do what they have to.
Wren rolls Studd over to make a cover but as soon as she lays over him Lynx returns to get her off. She fights back but Lynx levels her with a Kick To The Future. Studd is staggering and Lynx decides to hit him with a Kick To The Future too. After doing that, Gabi is standing on the ring apron. Lynx also hits her with a Kick To The Future but it just grazes her enough that she drops off the ring apron. Lynx turns back to Wren and grabs her. He hits the Dimensional Vortex but as soon as it connects, Callie Clark appears in the ring and hits Lynx with the Elite title right in the face, bouncing him off the canvas. She goes to the ring apron but before she can climb it, Randy is there. He grabs the title and the two start to tussle for it but Gabi grabs Studd by his feet. That allows Callie to pull the title away and she hits Studd with it, knocking him off the apron. Callie quickly climbs the turnbuckle and hits the Calliesault and makes the cover. 1...... 2....... 3~!!
Here is your winner and STILL the WZCW Elite Openweight Champion, Callie Clark~!!
Callie goes back to grabbing her title as the referee raises her arm in victory. Gabi gets into the ring and hugs her sister as Lynx, Wren and Studd are being attended to.
Copeland: What a battle. They just went non-stop here tonight for the Elite title. But in the end it was Callie exploiting the rules of the match that got her the win.
Cohen: You make it sound like it was a bad thing what she did. It was all totally legal.
Connor: I don't like it but again, it was completely legal what she did.
The Clark sisters make their way up the aisle as Callie holds up both the title and her sword in victory.
We cut backstage to a shot of a closed door. The words “General Managers” are written on a steel sign that is bolted onto the wooden door. From inside, the voice of a clearly irate woman can be heard above anything else. The noise seems to go on for a good few minutes before the door swings open and reveals the WZCW Heavyweight Champion with a stern look on her face. The Championship hangs over her shoulder as she shakes her head and then spots something that catches her eye. She marches up the corridor and comes face to face with Tyrone Blades – a smile adorning the face of the Hollow One.
Taylor: You had something to do with this, didn't you?
Blades smiles coyly but stays quiet.
Taylor: I know it was you, Blades. You'll pay for this. Trust me...
With that, the Heavyweight Champion storms off, leaving Blades in her wake.

Harrys: The following contest is the I QUIT match! Introducing first from Paris, France, weighing 220 pounds, King Mussél!
Instead of seeing the Frenchman pompously walk onto the stage the audience hears a narrators voice hit the PA system before a video is played.
PSA voice:The following is a Public Service Announcement: For all the misinformed Batti's of the world.
Connor: What the helll did I just listen to? I thought all that sexist crap got taken care of a long time ago.
Cohen: Oh come on Cat it's the biggest event of the year. All he's doing is having a bit of fun.
As soon as the video ends a thunderous roar of boos and jeers overtake the arena but are soon drowned out by the sound of King Mussel's theme music.
King Mussel drives onstage with a massive ice cream truck aptly named The Mussel Mobile. Children in the crowd become conflicted as their despised villain is seemingly offering sweets. But as he drives down the ramp, The King begins laughing maniacally as Flex Fitness employees spray Protein shakes and vegan food items into the crowd.
Copeland: That is disgusting. All those fans are going to have to sit the rest of the night with that all over them.
Cohen: Can someone please bring me a towel so I can get this stuff off me?
As a ringside attendant hands him a towel to get protein shake off of him Flex gets into the ring and stretches his muscles as he hears Batti's music hit the PA system.
Harrys: And his opponent from Neo Japa weiging in at 115LBS, Batti!
As it starts Batti comes out dressed like a Spanish Conquistador and carrying a torch. On each side of the ramp is a cannon which Batti lights with the torch in her hand. After a few seconds they both explode and shower the first few rows with rainbow colored confetti.
Cohen: That's going to take forever to clean.
Connor: As opposed to sticky protein shake and stepped on vegan food items Jack?
As the announcers argue, Batti hands off the torch and walks down the ramp. She high-fives a few fans on the way but she doesn't take her eyes off the man in the ring. She stands at ringside to pysch herself up for a bit before sliding into the ring and taking Flex out at the knees so she can rain down lefts and rightsto his head and chest as she screams at him while the time keeper quickly rings the bell to oficially start the match.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Connor: Batti doing the smart thing and taking down the bigger man before he can use his size against her.
Copeland: And taking out months of frustration out on the man that put Ramparte into early retirement. If that didn't happen I seriously doubt Batti would have decided to become a wrestler.
Cohen: All she did was ensure thay she meets the same fate as her ex-boyfriend. If you think Flex will let her walk away from this then you're in for a big surprise tonight.
Flex uses his strength and pushes Batti off quickly gets to his feet. He grabs Batti by her hair and pulls her in close before throwing her over his head in a vicious belly to belly suplex that sends the smaller woman half way across the ring. He slowly walks over to her and sneers as he drops down and grabs Batti by the throat and starts doing pushups. As her face slowly turns red to ref quickly gets down with a microphone in her hand.
Prince: Batti do you want to quit?
Unable to answer the only thing Batti can do is shake her head no as Flex does a few more pushups before he stands up with the same sneer on his face. As Batti coughs and stuggles to get her breath, Flex jumps out of the ring and searches for something specific. After a few minutes he comes out with a bag in his hand and slides back into the ring as Batti gets to her feet. As she turns around Flex takes a crown of broccoli out of the bag and shoves it right into her mouth and as far down her throat as he can. As Batti falls back down to the mat clutching her throat she coughs up pieces of roughage as the ref shoves the mic back in her face asking if she wants to quit.
Using the energy she has left, she pushes the mic out of her face and uses the ropes to get back to her feet.
Cohen: Flex has been on top in this match up since the opening bell and if he keeps up this pace I don't see that changing anytime soon.
Connor: Don't count Batti out yet Jack. Her entire career she's been beating opponents bigger than her.
Cohen: That's because she's only four feet tall.
As Batti expels the last of the broccoli out of her esophagus, Flex grabs her by the hair and tosses her out of the ring and partially up the ramp. He climbs out of the ring and follows her as she crawls backwards up the ramp. Once he catches up to her he grabs her by arm whips her into the railing. He measures her up and runs at her, looking to drive her right through the barrier but at the last second she falls flat as Flex crashes through into the first row. Batti gets up and climbs over the wreckage to get to the man who has made her life miserable. As she looks around she notices a man with a candy bar and asks if she can have it. He quickly hands it to her so she can turn around as Flex slowly gets to his knees. Batti opens the chocolate and after a small bite of her own she shoves the rest of it down the fitness guru's throat. As Flex coughs up pieces of chocolate the ref shoves a mic in his face
Prince: Flex do you want to quit?
Flex: GET AWAY FROM ME WOMAN!
Flex shoves the mic out of his face as he wipes his mouth clean of the last bit of chocolate before he stands up. He goes turns to Batti but before he can do anything she hits him in the stomach with a chair. With him doubled over she takes the chair and brings it down as hard as she can smiling as Flex screams in pain. Batti grabs him by the hair with one hand and pulls him back onto the ramp, she throws him up on the stage where she tosses the chair down and lands a huge wind-up punch quickly followed a dabbing elbow drop. She picks the chair back up and gives him a vicious blow to the spine before jogging backstage to look for something.
Connor: Tonight Batti is showing a side of herself that she doesn't normally let people see.
Cohen: I blame Tyrone Blades. Eve Taylor is right about him you know. The man destroys everything he touches.
Batti returns from backstage with a kendo stick in one hand while pushing a wheelchair. She goes right up to Flex and nails him with the kendo stick as he gets up. Once he gets to his feet she takes the wheelchair and slams it into the back of his knees causing him to fall back into the chair. Before he can get back up Batti takes the kendo stick and nails Flex repeatedly in the chest & head. When she's done she tosses the kendo stick off the stage and grabs the wheelchair by the handles. After taking a few deep breaths she takes the wheelchair and backs it up about 10 feet before getting a running start and throwing the wheelchair off the stage with Flex still sitting in it.
Fans: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Copeland: Oh my God! Someone needs to go check on Flex and make sure he's still alive!
Cohen: Prince needs to stop this match. Batti has clearly gone insane and wants to do permanent damage to Flex Mussél.
The ref jumps down after Flex and once she gives him a quick once over to check for serious injuries she asks him if he wants to quit.
Flex weakly pushes the ref away from him as he tries to fend off Batti who is able to dodge his blows and tie a couple of twenty pound dumbbells to each of his legs before pulling him to his feet. Once he's steady she grabs the kendo stick and starts hitting him once again as he jogs with forty pounds on each leg in order to get away from her. After they get to ringside Flex falls to his knees and as Batti goes to nail him in the back of the head the ref snatches the kendo stick out of her hand causing Batti to quickly turn around and demand to know what she's doing with the ref's answer.
Prince: It doesn't matter how much hate him Batti you know we can't risk concussions.
While Batti and the ref continue to argue Flex takes the weights off his legs and regains some of his strength. He notices the kendo stick and picks it up before slowly coming up behind Batti and nailing her in the back of the head hard enough to fall to the ground in a heap. Flex tosses the kendo stick down and motions to someone wearing a Flex Fitness employee shirt to follow him as he tosses Batti back in the ring. He easily deadlifts Batti and hits a devastating Mussél Bomb (Powerbomb dead-lift into Last Ride) and immediatly puts her in a torture rack as he orders the employee to start whipping her with his Flex Fitness weight lifting belt.
Connor: This is completely unfair Flex isn't even giving Prince a chance to ask Batti if she wants to quit.
Cohen: Can you blame him after Batti did the same thing while she was beating him like an animal with weights tied to his leg?
After another few minutes Flex drops Batti to the mat and finally lets Prince get near Batti with a microphone and ask her if she wants to quit.
Batti: Y…Yes. I…Quit.
As soon as the words leave Batti's mouth her head slumps back down to the mat and the ref calls for the bell.
Harrys: The winner of the match via forfeit, Flex Mussel!
Connor: Thank God this match is over. I don't know how much more Batti could have taken.
Copeland: Not too much more Cat. I think Batti is unconscious.
The EMTs and paramedics come rushing to the ring the camera fades to black.

Backstage Leon Kensworth is standing with a microphone in hand ready for an interview.
Kensworth: Ladies and gentlemen I am standing here with Garth Black who is just moments away from going one on one with the former World Champion, the first female World Champion in WZCW history, Kagura. Garth, this is your first match back in a long while. How did you prepare for this major match?
Garth Black appears on screen very focused and determined and gives Kensworth a stern look.
Black: You asked me how I prepared for this match. But to be honest just the mere fact that I prepared at all should be answer enough. I have been gone for months. For a long time after I won the World title. Since before I even did that, Kagura was busy trying as best as she could to win that World title. Time and time again trying. Then one day she stumbled onto a briefcase. When she finally got the title, she lost it right away. And they say I'm the one who falls off the wagon. She seems to fall off it any time she even sniffs success.
After the chaos we have witnessed a video plays. It is Rosie, the assistant of EurAsian champion Titus Avison, looking at the camera.
Rosie: It was the 24th November 2015. Kingdom Come VII. We hadn't seen The Force Awakens in the cinema yet. Tony Manicni had yet to make his debut. Donald Trump was a year away from being elected. Titus Avison stepped into the ring.
Titus steps into the frame with his EurAsian belt over his shoulder.
Titus: I win.
Rosie: You've heard legends of this man. They will always continue.
