Backstage, the next stage for Lethal Lottery numbers has been set up. A supermarket deli counter with assorted meats and pastries has been set up beautifully. Becky emerges through the door with Mark Keaton and Big Bad Roady in tow. She spreads her arms out to them both, presenting her wonderful vision of the next game they'll have to play.
Roady: What the hell is all of this?
Becky motions towards the top of the counter where a serving number machine rests. Keaton studies it for a moment before shaking his head and reaching for a ticket. Unfortunately, the ticket seems to be jammed in the machine. Keaton struggles with it for a moment but it does not move.
Keaton: Is this some kind of joke, Becky?
Keaton looks furious but is trying to keep his cool in the face of adversity. Becky studies the machine, glum that her latest game doesn't seem to be working out that well. When suddenly, the door behind them flies open again to reveal PC Stevie Broon in his ring gear.
Broon: Oot the way, ya wee dafty! Ah've seen this happen a few times, ye know? Pedro showed me the trick ae getting it oot the machine! Watch this, ya wee bawbag!
Stevie pushes past Keaton and Roadie so that he is facing the machine. He looks at it on both ends before sensitively rubbing one end of the machine.
Roady: Did you make any of that out?
Keaton adopts a very confused look before shaking his head at Roady. Stevie continues rubbing the machine but nothing seems to be happening.
Broon: Right, plan B it is then!
Stevie picks up the machine off the counter and throws it against the far wall. The machine smashes into a hundred pieces as a few tickets fall out. Stevie picks up the first ticket he sees and adopts a, frankly, deranged look as he barges past Roady once more.
Broon: See, nothin' tae it, big yin!
No one can quite believe what they have just witnessed but Keaton has bigger fish to fry. He grabs the ticket and leaves.
Roady: Wait, boss, you left this!
Roady picks something up and leaves the room after Keaton...
The camera returns to a static shot of the three announcers at ring side, all three look pleased with the night so far as all three adopt wide smiles.
Copeland: Well, ladies and gentlemen, it goes without saying that the Lethal Lottery is a worldwide event. With the 9th Kingdom Come on the cards, anticipation is at fever pitch and WZCW has been making news headlines across the globe. So, for that reason, for the first time ever, we'd like to introduce you to our Spanish announce team for the evening...
Cohen: Someone reinforce that table!
The camera moves along the row slightly to reveal two people sitting behind another WZCW desk. The first man, the play by play announcer is wearing a sharp suit and has a cool comb-over haircut. He is in his early 30's but looks comfortable with his surroundings. Beside him, a luchador in his mask, wearing a smart t-shirt. Both men sit behind the desk smiling until Seabass introduces them.
Copeland: Ladies and gentlemen, Marco Ribero and wrestling icon El Vejigante!
Ribero: Gracias, Seabass, y gracias por tenernos aquí esta noche. Es una noche masiva para nosotros, pero las cosas solo están comenzando, ¿no?
Marco hands over to the luchador who adopts a wry smile as he speaks.
Vejigante: Mi único remordimiento en la lucha nunca es romper completamente el techo de cristal. Esta noche, ¡alguien tiene la oportunidad de hacer justamente eso! Está a punto de ser muy sabroso.
The camera turns back to the three English commentators as they prepare the ring for the 9th annual Lethal Lottery match!
Copeland: What a night so far. We've seen absolute chaos and the fun hasn't even started yet.
Connor: Will we see our first female Lethal Lottery winner?
Cohen: Probably not Cat, but anything can happen in the Lethal Lottery match. It's my favourite match of the year because there's always heartbreak.
Harrys: The following match is a 30 person Lethal Lottery match. The rules of this match are as follows:
Two people enter the ring and every two minutes a new competitor will enter.
To be eliminated you must be thrown over the top rope and both feet are to hit the floor.
The last person standing will win the match and will head to Kingdom Come as number one contender and will face the champion for the World Heavyweight Championship. In addition to that they will also get the chance to main event the biggest show in WZCW.
The crowd start to cheer all sorts of chants. Titus is Trash can be heard. A Matt Tastic chant breaks out. The camera shows people in the crowd holding a Callie ASSault sign.
Harrys: Introducing first from Little Italy, NYC, weighing 275 pounds, being accompanied to the ring by Gino Rizzoli. He is the Mayhem champion...'The Don' Tony Mancini!
Copeland: You can hear the boo's for the Mayhem champion, his new outlook on life has allowed him to retain the Mayhem title earlier tonight.
Connor: A brutal match by most standards but he also has his outside help.
Cohen: Mancini may have had a brutal match earlier but he's the head of the biggest Mafia family in America. Surely he can be a surprise package tonight.
Harrys: And the person who drew number 2...
#2 – Randy Studd
Cohen: Ignore what I just said, the S-Express is here!
Copeland: Mancini won the match earlier tonight, you fancy Mancini's chances here.
Connor: Justin Cooper won last year after being eliminated first. Studd won the bingo earlier. Anything can happen in WZCW!
Studd has made his way down to the ring, eventually, after handing a couple of roses out to females at ring side. With both competitors in the ring, the bell is called. Ding Ding.
Randy Studd goes straight for Mancini and kicks him in the midsection, followed by a DDT. The Mayhem champion hits the mat as Studd flexes to the crowd. A chorus of boo's reign down, but he doesn't care. He kisses his muscles, picks up Mancini and throws him over the top rope!
Mancini clings on to the top rope as Gino runs around and keeps his feet from touching the floor. The long time family friend helps the champion survive. Studd is flexing to the crowd facing the other way. Mancini climbs back in the ring and hits Studd from behind. Studd snaps back into it as both men start exchanging punches. The 10 count begins as the crowd join in.
Cohen: Mancini using his smarts there, but Studd with the power advantage.
Copeland: All could change as the third entrant is about to come out.
#3 – Wren
The crowd cheer as Wren makes her way out and sprints straight down to the ring.
Connor: Wren may be on something of a downward spiral but the crowd are behind her.
Cohen: Downward spiral is an understatement, she really needs to sort herself out.
In the ring Mancini and Studd are back and forth with their punches but Wren climbs up the turnbuckle and delivers a cross body from the top rope. This knocks both men down as the crowd get behind her further.
Studd makes his way up but manages to get to his knees. A Spinning heel kick from Wren hits him on the mat. Mancini does the same and tries to catch Wren's foot but she's too quick and connects. Mancini crashes to the match.
Copeland: Impressive start by Wren there, taking charge of the Lottery.
Cohen: Neither Studd nor Mancini are fresh, let's see how she copes against someone who is well rested.
#4 – Logan McAllister
Connor: Logan storming down the ring here, he had quite the experience last year didn't he?
Copeland: That's right Cat, he entered as Elite Openweight champion but left without a belt. Few will forget Noah Ryder cashing in his King For A Day DURING the Lottery match.
Cohen: Since then he's had Richard keeping him on the straight and narrow.
The camera shows Brittany and Hayden sat at ringside as Logan heads to the ring, he's accompanied by Richard. He enters the ring as Wren is stood in the centre with Mancini and Studd crashed out on the mat. Logan rushes straight for Wren and connects with a high knee. Wren crumples.
Logan picks her up and gives her a T-Bone Suplex. The crash to the mat is loud and can be heard across the arena. Mancini and Studd have now made their way to their feet. Studd sees this as an opportunity. He grabs Wren and throws her over the top rope!
Harrys: Wren has been eliminated
Cohen: Not quite the women's revolution we expected.
Copeland: The crowd do not like that at all. You can hear the boo's and it will take a lot to really perk them up.
#5 – Theron Daggershield
Cohen: No! No! No! No! No!
Copeland: Ladies and gentlemen, Theron Daggershield is back.
The crowd go crazy as all three in the ring look at each other in absolute shock!
Connor: Listen to that reaction! We've not seen him in a ring since Kingdom Come last year and the people haven't forgotten the former world champion.
Daggershield makes his way down to the ring, a huge smile on his face as he holds his sword in the air like when Link gets the Master Sword. He rolls his d20 and heads into the ring. All three men jump him with stomps as he rolls in the ring.
Cohen: Neither men are phased by Theron here.
Studd and Mancini pick up Theron and whip him to Logan McAllister who hits a fallway slam. He picks up Theron and whips him back to the Mayhem opponents. Theron leaps and knocks both down. He turns to Logan who signals no with his hands.
Connor: Looks like Logan is in trouble here!
Cohen: Here's the timer to help him.
#6 – The Beard
Copeland: Number 6 is the Beard and remarkably he's the second former world champion in the match so far.
The crowd cheer for Beard as he sprints down the ring, he slides in and rushes to Theron's corner. The two men look at each other, smile. They turn and face Mancini and Studd. Both sets of men exchanging punches. This gets the crowd even louder.
Outside of the ring Brittany is shouting for Logan to watch himself and Richard Goldman heads over to her. They begin arguing and Brittany slaps Richard. This gets Logan's attention as he turns to face Goldman. Mancini spots this and rushes Logan from behind. Logan goes over the top rope.
Harrys: Logan McAllister has been eliminated.
Logan is furious outside of the ring as he brushes off Goldman and heads towards the back. Richard follows him pleading his case. The four men in the ring are still trading blows but Mancini and Studd look exhausted. Especially after this evening's earlier bout.
Connor: Whatever is going on with McAllister’s family and his associate needs to be resolved and quick.
Cohen: His focus for a match like the Lottery needs to be in the ring and not out of it, Mancini smart with capitalising there.
#7 – Harald Var Krigare
Copeland: Harald Var Krigare, from Sweden is making his WZCW debut tonight. The look on Mancini's face says it all.
Connor: Wow! 6”7 and 303lbs, he's impressive looking for sure.
As Var Krigare makes his slow walk to the ring Studd and Beard fight in the corner. Mancini and Theron in the other. Harald makes it to the ring and immediately gives Randy Studd a Superman punch. This knocks Randy Studd over the top rope. Beard turns and Var Krigare then shouts “RELEASE THE KRAKEN” and hits a powerful Brogue kick as Beard goes over the top rope.
Harrys: Randy Studd and the Beard have been eliminated.
Copeland: I'm told that kick is called The Kraken.
Cohen: He did shout it Seabass.
Connor: The punch is the Carolean Charge too.
Copeland: How can you bring down a man that size?
Cohen: It looks like Gino has the right idea.
He does as Mancini breaks from Theron and Gino throws a chair at Mancini. He catches it BAM he hits Harald, who almost doesn't flinch but The Don continues. This eventually gets Harald on the mat who rolls outside to hold his head.
Theron signals to the crowd as Mancini's back is turned on him. Mancini drops the chair, turns and Theron hits the Critical Hit! The RKO knocks Mancini out and the crowd go crazy. Gino climbs the side of the ring but Theron hits him with an elbow smash. The crowd continue to go crazy.
#8 – Triple X
Copeland: This is one angry man, he lost out to Titus Avison earlier on tonight and now will want to show he can win the Lethal Lottery.
Cohen: His quest to end heroes in WZCW surely presents itself here.
Connor: Few heroes bigger than Theron.
Triple X heads to the ring Theron goes for an attack but then Triple X is able to evade it. Triple X turns around shouts at Daggershield. "You have failed this company!" and then hits the X-Rated Superkick on Theron. Theron bounces into the rope he climbs on though but Triple X hits another! The former world champion is eliminated!
Harrys: Theron Daggershield has been eliminated.
Cohen: I guess not Cat.
Copeland: Harald has made his way back into the ring. He, Triple X and Tony Mancini are the only three with the others now eliminated.
#9 – Jabari Kasim
Copeland: Another debut tonight from Nigeria.
Cohen: Cat, you thought Harald was impressive? He towers over him, 7 foot 3 and 485lbs! That's damn impressive.
Connor: The fact he makes Harald Var Krigare look like Batti!
Jabari makes his way into the ring as everyone stops and stares at him as he towers over everyone in the ring. He enters as there's seconds of silence. Mancini just decides to go for Jabari, hitting him with fists and forearms but Jabari isn't even looking at him. The rest of the wrestlers just nod it off and turn to fighting each other, leaving Mancini to Jabari who grabs him and lifts him up very high and throws him over the top rope. However Gino catches him, almost stumbling down but manages to put him on the apron. He hands Mancini brass knux as Jabari turns around. He looks to finish his work and goes for Mancini but is met with a big right hand. Jabari backs off from the blow and looks at Mancini angrily before charging and knocking him off and onto to Gino as they both collapse to the ground.
Harrys: Anthony Mancini has been eliminated!
#10 - Batti
Connor: She may have failed to win the World title but this is her chance to bounce back big time.
Cohen: How fair is it to have another opportunity like this?
Batti makes her way to the ring but is immediately met with a big Clothesline from Jabari. He then knocks Triple X down in the ring with a chop, with Batti and Triple X down that just leaves Harald Var Krigare. They face off with Harald having to look up.
They exchange blows with Jabari clubbing over Harald. Harald shoves him off and tries to lifts up Kasim but Jabari falls on top of him. Batti and Triple X have not got up and face against each other. Batti starts with a swift kick but Tripl X returns the favour. The crowd cheers when Batti kicks but jeers when Triple X returns the favour. There's a huge intensity here, both competitiors already having had gruelling matches earlier on in the night. Triple X hits another knocking Batti to the mat. He's the only one stood up in the ring.
#11 - Ace Stevens
Ace emerges on stage, taking his jacket off before making his way down the aisle. Right away, he and Triple X start exchanging blows.
Copeland: Ace and Triple X met each other earlier tonight don't forget.
Cohen: Triple X actually elimanted Ace.
Batti gets up and starts hitting Ace who tries a Punchline on Batti, but she ducks. This hits the person stood behind her. Harald Var Kigare. He doesn't even blink as he returns the favour to Ace with a Bionic elbow. Ace crashes to the mat and HVK delivers some stomps. Triple X and Batti tangle in the corner whilst Jabari uses this as an opportunity for a breather.
#12 PC - Stevie Broon
Copeland: Here comes the ex-cop on the edge, the debuting Stevie Brown.
Cohen: I.... oh-oh....
Connor: Calm down, Jack. He's not in the force anymore
Broon makes his way to the ring and stares down Triple X. "It's Go Time!" Broon screams out and charges in. He hits Triple X with a headbutt, followed by one to Ace, one to Batti and one to Jabari.... but has no effect. Jabari stares at him and grabs him with a big Nerve Hold, driving him down to the canvas.
Harald pushes Jabari and both men exchange chops across the chest. The crowd chant Woo at this (we're not sure where they get this from). Stevie Broon stands up and is met by a kick from Triple X. “See YOU YA BAWBAG FANCY A KISS?” and a kiss he gives him. A Glasgow kiss and he headbutts Triple X! He does it a second time, and then a third! Triple X hits the mat. Ace and Batti are resting in each corner, Broon heads over to give some stomps to Ace. Jabari climbs out the ring to get himself a breather.
#13 - Grindhouse
Connor: Who the heck is that?!
Copeland: At 7 foot tall he's making his debut tonight too. His name is Grindhouse.
Grindhouse makes his way to the ring, Harald has made his way to his feet and looks up at Grindhouse! The 7 foot giant towers over him. Suddenly there's a tap on the back of Grindhouse's shoulder it's Jabari Kasim! He towers over Grindhouse who looks quite confused that there's someone taller than him.
Grindhouse hits Harald with an STO before turning to Jabari. The two men stare each other down but then Batti comes in with the GLOMP to Grindhouse this time but he doesn't go down. At the same time, Triple X hits a Missile Dropkick to Jabari who is also unmoved. The two former contenders get up and are met with Clotheslines from the giants.
#14 - Yemrez Reqonic
Copeland: Here's Yemrez who will surely want to show her awesome strength.
Connor: Another woman who can easily do this
Yemrez makes her way down the aisle and stops, staring at the two giants standing. She opts to stand outside, concerned as Batti and Triple X once again try to attack the two big men. Harald stands back up to make three giants in the ring. Ace and Broon decide to get involved.
Connor: Smart stretegy by Yemrez.
Cohen: I don't think that's a strategy. I just think she doesn't know if she should go in .
Broon and Ace focus on Grindhouse to bring him down whilst Batti and Triple X focus on taking Jabari out. Harald exits the ring and chases down Yemrez. The two begin to exchange blows outside of the ring.
#15 - Callie Clark
Callie marches down the aisle and gets inbetween Harald and Yemrez. She throws Yemrez into the ring as Var Krigare returns too.
Copeland: There goes Callie. Showing no fear whatsoever.
Connor: Between her frustration at not getting her rematch tonight and everyone focused on the giants, of course she would just go right in there.
Cohen: Who the hell is she tonight?
Connor:She's the Scarlet Witch Jack.
Yemrez decides to attack Grindhouse whilst Ace has moved onto Jabari. Neither of the giants are moved as the grab their attackers. Grindhouse throws Ace out and Jabari throws Yemrez out. Both hit the mat at the same time.
Harrys: Yemrez Reqonic and Ace Stevens have been eliminated.
Grindhouse goes right after Batti, grabbing her and sitting her on the top turnbuckle, but before he can eliminate her, she kicks him away and leaps but is caught and hit with a big Chokeslam as the clock winds down.
#16 - Mark Keaton
Copeland: Here's Keaton who is by himself strangely. No Roady in site.
Connor:He has a lot to prove and maybe wants to do it alone.
Cohen: Or maybe the TMZ are still around him.
Copeland: Maybe! Just a reminder of who is in the ring. Triple X, Jabari, Harald Var Krigare, Batti, PC Stevie Broon, Grindhouse, Callie Clark and now Mark Keaton.
Keaton enters the ring and Jabari and Grindhouse go straight for him. Jabari headbutts him and Keaton bounces off Grindhouse who hits him with an Axe Handle. Jabarai uses the opportunity to grab Grindouse to eliminate him. The two men begin to tussle at the corner of the rope.
Triple X sees the opportunity and rushes pushing both men, Batti and Broon join with HVK and Callie Clark aiding. Mark Keaton helps two as both Grindhouse and Jabari go over the top rope! Jabari has one foot hit the ground but is able to avoid the second hitting as he pulls himself up. Grindhouse, however, is eliminated.
Harrys: Grindhouse has been eliminated!
Copeland: We're down one giant!
Connor: And the countdown is on. Who's next?
#17 – Big Bad Roady
The crowd look shocked as Roady makes his way out, none more than Mark Keaton who looks like he's just seen a ghost. As Roady approaches Keaton then gets more excited, smiling and jumping for joy.
Copeland: Making his in ring debut, it's the roadie of Mark Keaton, Big Bad Roady.
Cohen: I'm sure Keaton will appreciate the help, his smile on his face says it all.
Connor: He may still be feeling the effect from the EurAsian match earlier but he now has an ally.
Cohen: They do remind me of Rocky and Mugsy from Looney Tunes.
As Roady enters the ring he and Keaton hug and turn their attention to Stevie Broon. Keaton with a punch to Broon knocks him into Roady who delivers a Gorilla press slam. Broon crashes to the mat and Roady picks him up again. He throws Broon to Keaton but Broon is able to hit the Clean up in Aisle 9! The Angle Slam takes out Keaton as Broon turns to face Roady. Broon approaches and they start exchanging punches.
Meanwhile the Nigerian and Swedish powerhouses are squaring up to each other once again. Harald Var Krigare lifts his hands up in the air. Jabari responds and both men begin their feat of strength. Jabari with the height and weight advantage has the upper hand here and HVK drops to his knees. Jabari keeps the hold BAM he's hit on the back by Triple X.
Triple X quickly escapes to the corner as Jabari looks to Batti and Callie Clark who insist it wasn't them. Clark points to Batti and Jabari approaches her, picks her up and launches her across the ring. She collapses in the turnbuckle corner like a rag doll. He then turns to Callie Clark who immediately rolls out of the ring.
#18 – King Mussel
Cohen: The King has returned.
Connor: It has been a while since we've seen him, you may remember him as Flex Mussel.
Copeland: A lot can change in a year but if he's even half as ruthless as he was this could easily be his night.
In the ring PC Stevie Broon is still trading punches with Roady as Keaton gets back to his feet, RMK taps Broon on the shoulder as Broon turns around and Keaton hits him in the midsection. Stevie Broon bends over and Keaton hits the Voltron Suplex. Broon manages to escape from it and pushes Keaton into the ropes. The crowd cheer as Broon charges at him but Roady grabs him by the shoulders and pulls him back. Roady hits an elbow to the face of PC Stevie Broon and Keaton uses this as an opportunity to grab the policeman and throw him over the top rope!
Harrys: PC Stevie Broon has been eliminated.
Cohen: Smart by Keaton, use Roady and you will go places.
Connor: I must say it was an impressive show by Brown. We'll see how his future pans out.
Cohen: It's Broon!
Callie Clark makes her way back into the ring and decides to go for Triple X. Triple X who has been in the match since number 8 as well as a gruelling EurAsian title match. Clark uses the fact that Triple X is sat in the corner she begins to drop some stomps on him whilst HVK and Jabari are tangled in each other in the corner still.
Mussel eventually enters the ring after a long walk down the ramp and notices Batti in the corner. He picks her up and immediately goes for the Mussel Bomb. Lifting her above his head the countdown begins. He walks around the ring showing his sheer strength. He goes to the edge of the ring.
#19 – Tyrone Blades
The crowd go absolutely crazy for the hall of famer. Batti uses this as an opportunity to escape the potential Mussel Bomb and Blades rushes to the ring to aid her. Mr. Jones slowly saunters down the ring to stand at the side.
Copeland: Listen to that reaction! The people in Sydney love Blades.
Cohen: He's the best of both worlds, Seabass.
Connor: He's somehow flown under the radar but his eyes are set on gold.
Blades rushes in the ring and immediately punches King Mussel in the face. Batti uses this as a chance to hit Mussel in the back of the knees. A two for one on the King and the Batti/Blade alliance has hit the crowd at almost electric levels.
Keaton and Roady now approach Jabari and Harald. Jabari and Harald look at each other and nod deciding to put their differences aside for this moment. The begin trading blows with Keaton and Roady. Each blow bigger than the next. Roady bounces into the ropes, fall backs and ties himself in them. Keaton rushes and makes a leap with a double clothesline knocking both the international monsters down.
Callie continues her assault on Triple X who manages to roll out the ring to avoid further stomps. He enters the ring straight away again using the opportunity to hit Big Bad Roady over the top rope!
Harrys: Big Bad Roady has been eliminated.
Keaton hasn't noticed this and turns around after celebrating taking Jabari and Var Krigare down.
Copeland: Look at the chaos. Callie and Triple X seem to have got a hatred from nowhere. Batti and Blades are taking down Mussel, the monsters are out on the mat and this leaves Mark Keaton alone.
#20 – Mikey Stormrage
Connor: OH MY GOODNESS LISTEN TO THIS REACTION!
Cohen: Have you seen how fat he's gotten?
The crowd go crazy as Stormrage makes his way to the ring. Keaton does not look happy as he backs himself into the corner of the turnbuckle. He gets in the ring, points to Keaton and BAM the former world champion is jumped by Triple X!
Harald Var Krigare and Jabari make their way to their feet. HVK turns to Jabari and goes for a Carolean Charge. The Superman punch misses though as Kasim evades this, grabs Jabari and throws him into the ropes. Jabari approaches Harald and hits the Bumaye (Kesagiri Chop)! HVK goes over the top rope!
Harrys: Harald Var Krigare has been eliminated
Copeland: Another impressive debut there Jack.

Harrys: Mark Keaton has been eliminated
#21 – Vee A.D.Z.
Copeland: A man who made his return recently Vee A.D.Z. Wants to show people just what he can do once again.
Cohen: Did you know he's now officially the smartest man in the world as Stephen Hawking has died and gone to heaven?
Connor: Vee doesn't believe in heaven because he's just that damn smart.
Vee heads into the ring and he walks over to the Nigerian Giant. He poses with some air boxing but Jabari does what is unexpected. He shadow boxes back! The crowd love this as the 7”3 giant towers over the 5”9 frame of Vee A.D.Z. Vee Steps back and goes for the 720 Guyver kick! The Nigerian Giant catches his foot and drops it, Vee spins and BAM Jabari hits him with the two handed chokeslam!
In one corner Batti and Mussel are still continuing their back and forth and in the other Callie Clark and Mikey Stormrage have begun tussling in the other corner. The former champion looks like he's not skipped a beat. Triple X, however, has his sites on a new hero. Tyrone Blades. The crowd boo Triple X as he approaches Blades. Blades knows what's coming as Triple X unleashes a fury of swift kicks. Outside of the ring Mr. Jones is encouraging Blades as the crowd join in.
#22 – Vega
Copeland: As if this match needed more chaos!
Cohen: I'm very much enjoying Triple X's strategy to take down Blades.
Connor: Triple X has been in a long time now.
Blades grabs his composure as he steps back causing Triple X to miss a kick. Triple X goes for another and misses. He then collapses in a heap on the floor. He's been in the match for 30 minutes now and has had a gruelling match earlier in the night. Blades chuckles and uses this as an opportunity to go and help Batti.
Batti and Mussel are at it in the corner, Blades grabs Mussel by the shoulders spins him round and BAM Mussel actually hits Blades with the Flexicution out of absolutely nowhere.

#23 – Titus Avison
Cohen: Oh yes! Business is about to pick up, here's your EurAsian champion! Listen to the crowd chant TIT TIT TIT which we all know means Titus is Tremendous!
Copeland: It means Titus is trash.
The boo's reign down on the longest reigning champion in WZCW history but he doesn't care. He approaches the ring, waves to Jones and enters. Vee does not look happy and rushes the hall of famer. Titus, however, steps to the side, Vee bounces off the ropes and this is a perfect opportunity to hit the Tit drop! Vee is on the mat, Titus picks him up and throws him over the top rope.

Copeland: Crikey mate! Bruce Irwin from Erinsbrough has got the crowd singing along. This has stirred everyone else to their feet in the match too.
Cohen: Streuth mate, Bruce Iriwin? Still a better Aussie than Cooper!
As Bruce heads to the ring Stormrage hits another Headshot to Callie Clark.
Callie Clark has been eliminated
Connor: That's another female eliminated.
Everyone in the ring is stood apart. Triple X, Jabari, Batti, King Mussel, Tyrone Blades, Mikey Stormrage, Vega, Titus Avison and Bruce Irwin. The suddenly rush to the middle and there's absolute anarchy. Fists, feet, heads and everything in between being thrown.
Cohen: Now we're talking!
Vega and Stormrage head to one corner. Blades and Batti continue their onslaught of the King. The other four are still in sheer chaos in the middle of the ring. The timer starts.
5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
#25 – Lynx
Copeland: It's the Elite Openweight Champion at number 25, folks. We've seen Champions win this event before, Lynx would love to be another name added to that illustrious list. He's got a really good number, so let's see what he can do.
Cohen: And his nemesis, Callie Clark has just been eliminated too. His mind might have been focussed on her heading into the ring but he's got a clear mind and a decent shot at the win now.
Lynx comes through the curtain to a massive cheer from the WZCW loyal. He takes a moment to look around the expansive arena – a smile appearing on his face as he does. Soon enough, he focusses on the ring ahead of him and begins walking down the ramp. In the ring, Titus and Bruce Irwin seem to have orchestrated some kind of loose alliance – knowing that it will be beneficial to both until it suddenly isn't any more. In the far corner of the ring, Mikey Stormrage is seen tussling with Vega. The former Mayhem Champion is trying his utmost to put Mikey out on his plump ass but has no luck when Mikey finally ends the attempt with a punch to the face. With everyone else on the canvas, Lynx makes his way towards the ring as Titus and Bruce stare him down. He almost reaches the ring before Callie smashes him with a super-kick right to the jaw! A look of sheer annoyance crosses the face of the former Elite Openweight Champion as she grabs Lynx by the hair and tosses him into the ring – a smile now appearing on her face.
Connor: Oh come on, Callie! There was no need for that at all!
Cohen: I bet Callie would be willing to argue that she needed to do it, Cat. These two have been at each other's throats for weeks and months now. Callie really thought that she was going on to Kingdom Come but that has been snuffed out. Good on her for voicing her frustrations.
Copeland: She did a lot more than voice her frustrations, Jack.
Titus laughs as Lynx gets rolled into the ring He orders Irwin to start attacking Lynx – an action that is swiftly taken. Irwin towers over Lynx and begins raining punches down on the time-travelling superstar. The crowd boo as Irwin pulls Lynx back to his feet. He back him up to the ring ropes and whips him across the ring. Titus waits for Lynx to hit the ropes but his plans are undone when Lynx ducks under his clothesline and nails Irwin with a stunning drop-kick that sends him reeling backwards. Irwin rests against the ropes as the crowd's sense of anticipation is heightened. Lynx tries to get back to his feet But Titus is on him straight away – nailing him with stomps and kicks as Lynx rises. But Lynx, somehow, manages to get back to his feet under massive pressure from the EurAsian Champion. Titus screws his face up and tries to land a clubbing lariat. But once again, Lynx ducks under his arm and nails him with a low drop-kick that sends Titus to the canvas this time. Lynx sees Irwin resting on the ropes and sees his opportunity. He runs at Irwin, looking to eliminate him, but he is swiftly stopped by none other than Jabari Kasim – who nails him with a stunning shoulder block that send shim hurtling downwards and onto the canvas.
Copeland: That giant is beyond belief, ladies and gentlemen. Lynx seemed to be getting up a head of steam after, not very subtly, being kicked on the jaw as he entered the ring. But look at the way Jabari took down the Elite Openweight Champion with one strike. He really is frightening!
Cohen: He's my pick now, Seabass. We might have a few more entries to go but no one is going to be as big and as strong as Jabari Kasim. Mr Banks has done wonders by bringing this humongous man to the WZCW.
Connor: I mean, who is really going to stop him?
One by one, the members of the roster who are still in the match get to their feet and charge at the beast of a man. Vega is first but he is swatted away like a bug by the African legend. Next, it is the turn of Triple X. X runs at Jabari and launches himself towards the big man. But he is caught in mid-air and planted into the canvas with ease in a matter of seconds. Finally, Batti gets to her feet and moves into the middle of the ring. Jabari stands over the fun-sized wrestler as the crowd take a sheepish intake of breath. Suddenly, Batti begins yelling at Jabari and poking him in the chest – telling him off for being so big and so scary. Jabari's eyes widen as he looks down at the caffeinated WZCW superstar with shock. Suddenly, he picks her up and hoists her way above his head. Batti kicks and screams as he makes his way towards the edge of the ring – hoping to dump her out of the match. When suddenly, Blades makes his way back into the ring and chops the back of Jabari's legs – saving Batti as she falls to the canvas, inside of the ropes. Jabari falls to one his knees but is soon put down as Blades and Batti team up to kick him right on the mouth. Batti hugs Blades as the countdown begins again!
5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
#26 – Kagura
Connor: Oh, boy! Here comes the former Heavyweight Champion, ladies and gentlemen.
Copeland: And she has her work cut out to try and get herself back in contention for the Heavyweight Championship, Cat. She really needs a win in this match to punch her ticket to the main event of Kingdom Come.
Kagura calmly appears through the curtain and makes her way down the ramp. The fans in the arena give her a very warm welcome but Kagura seems more focussed than ever to get into a WZCW ring and show the world what she can do. As soon as she its the ring, she makes a dash towards Blades and Batti on the opposite side. She ducks under Blades' clothesline attempt and then nails him with a few stiff shots to the jaw. Soon after. Batti jumps on to Kagura's shoulders and begins chocking her from behind. That attempt is soon put to bed as Kagura flips her recent opponent over her shoulders and onto the canvas. Soon enough, Blades is back on her, nailing her with some stiff shots of his own. He back her up to the ropes and whips her across the ring. As she returns, she somehow manages to divert her momentum and nails Batti with a running drop-kick to the jaw. The crowd take a sharp intake of breath as Batti's head hits the canvas with a thud. Kagura gets back to her feet and squares up to Blades once more. After a few seconds, both of them begin trading blows back and forth. It is Blades who gets the upper hand, however, as he knocks Kagura backwards with a stiff knee to the gut. Kagura recoils somewhat, holding her stomach. Blades sees his opportunity to eliminate the former Heavyweight Champion and goes for the Pele Kick. However, in the interim, Batti is pulled to her feet by Kagura and into the path of the move. Blades connects flush with the jaw of Batti and it sends her reeling backwards. Blades looks on from the canvas with a horrified look upon his face as Kagura allows Batti to stumble backwards towards the ropes and then clotheslines Batti over the top rope and onto the floor below!
Harrys: Batti has been eliminated!
Cohen: Uh-oh! That wasn't supposed to happen!
Copeland: Great instincts from Kagura to pull Batti into the way of that move, folks. But just think how Tyrone Blades is feeling right now. He is part of the reason why Batti is out of this match. Who knows how that will play out going forward.
Blades looks absolutely shocked by what has just happened but he has no time to consider the implications of his actions as Kagura is hastily attacked across the ring by Titus. Blades continues to stare at Kagura with a look of anger now appearing on his features. The big man, Jabari Kasim, cares very little about Blades' problems, however, and immediately begins stomping away at the WZCW legend. Blades manages to fight back, his actions motivated by his rage and his desire for revenge. He gets to his feet and shows the courage of a lion as he trades stiff shots and head-butts with the African giant. Jabari, for the first time really, is beaten in a fist-fight as Blades finally knocks him backwards. The weakness in the big man is plain for all to see and Blades is soon joined in his plight by Bruce Irwin and Vega. All three men begins peppering the African legend with stiff shots that send him reeling towards the nearby ropes. Jabari can barely cover up as all three men kick, punch and head-butt the big man until he is touching the ropes. Suddenly, all three grab his legs and begin lifting him off of his feet. The crowd are on their feet in anticipation and shock as Jabari is slowly lifted from his vertical base. The crowd reaches a fever pitch as all three men give one final heave and unceremoniously dump the giant over the top rope!
Harrys: Jabari Kasim has been eliminated!
Copeland: I don't believe what I just witnessed, folks. Jabari Kasim must have been everyone's pick with his sheer size and presence. But Blades, in a state of shock and anger, has managed to inspire a few more people to his cause and has dumped the big man out of this match. Tremendous strength and – wait a minute!
Vega and Irwin share a crisp high 5 as Jabari lands on his feet on the outside of the ring. Jabari looks around at the referees, who are telling him to leave. He doesn't really understand what is going on truthfully. But it matters not to Tyrone Blades, who has already hit the ground running – literally. With Irwin and Vega tied up in their celebrations, Blades hits the far ropes and, upon his return, nails both Irwin and Vega with a double clothesline that sends both men over the top rope and out of the match. The crowd explode as 2 more men are unceremoniously dumped out of the Lethal Lottery!
Harrys: Both Bruce Irwin and Vega have been eliminated!
5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
#27 - Matt Tastic
Connor: Here we go! Business is very truly about to pick up, ladies and gentlemen!
Copeland: Business is absolutely picking up now, Cat. Tyrone Blades has just eliminated 3 people on his way to controlling this match for the time being. But his task to become the first two-time winner of the Lethal Lottery match has just been very difficult with the introduction of a man with the same quest.
Cohen: This is why I love the Lethal Lottery!
Matt comes flying out of the curtain and sprints towards the ring. The crowd are immediately on his side, thanks to his position in the company and his energy down the ramp. He slides under the bottom rope and immediately meets Blades in the middle of the ring with some stiff punches that drives Blades backwards. But Blades isn't the only man on his hit list as Tastic goes around the ring, peppering everyone with shots that he can lay a hand on. First, it is Mussel who gets a lashing from Tastic. Then, he moves right onto Titus – who follows suit. The energy Matt is showing is incomparable to anything else seen in the Lethal Lottery match. One by one, he moves through Kagura, Lynx and Triple X until Mikey gets to his feet in the middle of the ring and Tastic turns around with a look of shock on his face. The crowd are on their feet as the two Live Mas superstars finally meet in the middle of a WZCW ring for the first time in a long while. Both men stand silently looking at each other with a smile upon their faces.
Copeland: Wow! What a moment this is, folks. No one thought that Mikey would ever walk again a few months ago – not least his best friend, Matt Tastic. And here they both are, legends in WZCW, looking each other in the eye for a spot at Kingdom Come.
Cohen: Only one man can make his dreams come true though, Seabass. They might still be best friends but only one of them can go on to main event Kingdom Come this year.
Both men allow their smiles to grow even larger as the fans cheer loudly for them both. Eventually, both men share a small hug in the middle of the ring and then begin circling each other – the match is on! Both men come together with a tie-up but the excitement of the fans is soon extinguished as both King Mussel and Triple X interrupt the tie-up with clubbing blows to both Live Mas superstars. The crowd cannot believe they have been robbed of this moment and begin booing loudly but neither Mussel or Triple X seem to care a great deal. Mussel takes Matt into one corner and begins choking him with his boot – much to the hatred of the Sydney faithful. In the other corner, Triple X is nailing Mikey with some stiff elbows to the side of the head. Both men are taking a beating but that is the least of their worries as, almost simultaneously, X and Mussel lift them both off of their feet and begin trying to toss them over the top rope. The crowd are booing so loud that the commentary is barely audible.
Connor: What a great moment it was but both men forgot where they were for a second and now they might just be dumped out of this match. Sentiment will get you nowhere in the Lethal Lottery match, ladies and gents.
Copeland: Wait a minute! Titus is almost gone!
In the other corner of the ring, Kagura has managed to get Titus off of his feet and is slowly hoisting him towards the top rope. The crowd cannot believe what they are seeing as three favourites in this match seem to be on their last legs in the competition. Titus holds onto the top rope but it is doing nothing to slow his rise to head-height. Soon enough, Kagura has raised Titus high enough to get him over the ropes. Titus falls to the apron as one leg dangles towards the floor. The crowd are yelling and screaming as the EurAsian Champion looks to be on his way out of this match. Kagura puts her boot to the back of Titus and begins pushing him away from the apron with all of her might. Titus is struggling to stay in this match but, somehow, manages divert her boot from his back and lands a swift punch to Kagura's pretty features, Kagura stumbles backwards and Titus wastes no time in scurrying under the bottom rope and back into the match.
Cohen: I thought Titus was a goner there, guys. But the EurAsian Champion is famous for surviving when the pressure is on and that's just another example of it!
Copeland: Incredible stuff there, Jack, you're right.
Meanwhile, Lynx has taken up with Tyrone Blades and both of them are in the middle of the ring. Blades looks to be getting the better of the exchange but a roundhouse kick to the guts of the Hall of Fame superstar turns that tide. Blades falls to one knee as Lynx hits the far ropes. He returns with pace and nails Blades with a running knee that sends Blades back to the canvas. Lynx looks around the crowd as Blades is incapacitated in just the right spot. The crowd know what he is going for and get to their feet once more. Lynx immediately makes his over to the side of the ring and begins climbing the turn-buckles. He looks behind him and makes sure that Blades is still in position. Taking so many chances, Lynx executes a perfect moonsault from the top rope right onto the sternum of Tyrone Blades. The crowd let out a huge cheer as the Elite Openweight Champion makes his gamble pay off. He tries to pull Blades back to his feet but Blades is dead weight at this point. He continues to struggle as the timer begins once more...
5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
#28 – Garth Black
Copeland: NO WAY!!
Cohen: I don't believe it!
Connor: Yes, it is him!
As the familiar tones of Garth Black's music begins playing, the crowd are on their feet once again – the shock of the moment lost on no one. After a few seconds, Garth Black appears through the curtain to one of the most raucous ovations of the whole night. Black looks to be the same person as before as he surveys the Sydney crowd. No one can quite believe it is him but he meakes his way down the ramp nonetheless.
Copeland: Garth Black has not been seen in WZCW in months, folks. The former World Champion enters at number 28 and has to be considered amongst the favourites for this match now! He looks to be in great shape, given the rumours of what happened to him in his time away from the Fed.
Garth walks down to the ring and slowly walks up the steps and into the ring. In the ring, Lynx has finally managed to get Blades back to his feet and is struggling to get him over the top rope. Black enters the ring to a massive cheer from the crowd. He saunters towards Lynx and Blades and nonchalantly picks both of them up and tosses them both over the top. Blades manages to hold onto the top rope and saves himself. But the shock of being attacked form behind is too much for the Elite Openweight Champion as he tumbles to the floor.
Harrys: Lynx has been eliminated!
Lynx hits the floor and looks up towards Garth Black above him in the ring. Lynx cannot believe ho bad his luck has been as he shakes his head and closes his eyes. Black stares down at Lynx with a smile on his face. But that smile is soon wiped from his features as Blades leathers him with a punch to the mouth that sends him reeling backwards. Blades seizes the opportunity to get back through the ropes and then runs at Black. But has regained his composure though and manages to catch Blades with a perfect judo throw that takes both men to the canvas. Black wastes no time in going to town on Blades, hitting him with a flurry of punches to the face. With that accomplished, Black gets to his feet and raises both hands into the air – the adrenaline coursing through his veins once again. The fans give him a much more mixed reception now but Black doesn't care one bit. Black's moment is cut very short, however, as Mussel comes from behind and nails him with a double-axe handle to the back of his head. Black hits the canvas as the fitness enthusiast stands over him wirh a sick smile on his face. Mussel begins laying the boot into the former World Champion as the crowd begin booing mercilessly. Suddenly though, those boos are changed to cheers as Blades sluggishly gets to his feet behind Mussel. The crowd know that the meeting of the two intense superstars in coming and they cannot wait!
Copeland: Here we go, ladies and gentlemen! These two surely have no love lost between them. And with so few entrants left to enter this match, it's about time they settled this once and for all!
Cohen: Look at the hairs on the back of my arm, Seabass! I am absolutely loving this!
Mussel mirrors the action of Garth only seconds ago by raising both of his massive pythons in the air in celebration. Suddenly though, he is turned around by Blades and is immediately met with a stiff punch to the mouth. Mussel fires back and, soon enough, both men are trading stiff shots in the middle of the ring. But Mussel is the man who gets the better of the exchange and nails Blades with a swift head-butt that sends him reeling towards the ropes. Mussel allows the same sick smile to appear on his face as blood begins to slowly pour from the nose of Tyrone Blades. Mussel saunters across the ring and nails Tyrone with another head-butt to the face. Blades falls to one knee but Mussel soon picks him up and attempts to put him over the top rope. The crowd take a sharp intake of breath as their attention is fixed on the struggle between the two. The struggle between them is great as Blades wraps his arm around the head of Mussel and begins pulling him over the top with him. Until suddenly, the most insane thing happens! From under the ring, Batti appears and pulls Mussel over the top rope as Blades lands on the apron and rolls back into the ring! Mussel tumbles out of Blades arm and onto the floor below!
Harrys: King Mussel has been eliminated!
Copeland: I can't believe it, folks! Batti never left ringside! No one noticed her at the side of the ring and she has just saved Tyrone Blades from, undoubtedly, being eliminated from this match.
Connor: What's more, she's just put King Mussel out of the match that he wanted to win more than anything. I know for a fact that Mussel isn't going to take this lightly at all! What have you done, Batti!?
Cohen: The timer!
5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
#29 – Vox
Copeland: It's everyone's favourite fund-raiser, Cat!
Connor: What a great number for Vox to pick from the lot, Seabass. Number 29 means that he only has to outlast the 7 others in the ring and whoever number 30 might be.
Cohen: Think of all the charitable causes Vox could set up if he won the Lethal Lottery! He's my pick now!
Vox enters the arena to a good reaction from the fans. He looks excited to be a part of the match and offers everyone a warm smile as he makes his way down the ramp. Inside the ring, Kagura is still wrestling with Titus in the corner of the ring, whilst Tyrone Blades rests in another corner on his own. Meanwhile, Triple X has set his mind to putting Mikey Stormrage out of this match once and for all. He has Mikey in the corner and is now peppering him with more slaps to the bare chest. The crowd are on his back as Vox slides into the ring and makes a dash for Garth Black. Vox gets a great cheer from the Sydney crowd as he stomps Black into oblivion and then makes his way towards Titus and Kagura. Titus had managed to rally back with a few shots to Kagura but is soon put under more pressure as Vox lands a stiff punch to his lower back that makes Titus yell out in pain. Vox whips him across the ring and then nails him with a stunning cross-body. In one corner, however, Mikey is struggling to deal with Triple X. X has managed to summon all of his remaining strength to hoists Mikey up onto the top rope. The crowd don't want to say goodbye to the newly-returned superstar and are shouting at Mikey to find some way to stay in the match – an action that Mikey manages to find by scarping the eyes of Triple X. X drops Mikey and recoils in sheer pain, clutching at his eyes and hobbling backwards. Suddenly, Matt Tastic appears in camera shot and grabs X by the scruff of the neck and runs him towards the ropes – tossing him over the top rope and out of the match! The crowd are on their feet as X slams to the outside with a look of pure shock on his face and his red eyes wide open!
Harrys: Triple X has been eliminated!
Copeland: Triple X is out! The team of Live Mas has conspired to get rid of one of the most dangerous people in this match, a man who could have very easily gone on to win the whole thing, This crowd is on fire!
Cohen: Dirty tactics by Mikey Stormrage in the first place, Seabass! Triple X might be out of this match but there is no doubt that his expedition to rid this company of its false idols will continue, mark my words. He might have just added a few more names to that list actually.
The newly-initiated Vox makes a run for Matt Tastic and manages to blind-side him with a belly to back suplex that takes the Hall of Fame superstar to the canvas. But Vox is soon met with a reply from Mikey Stormrage. As Vox gets to his feet, Mikey runs over to him and nails him with a clothesline that takes him right back down to the canvas. With everyone else tied up for the time being, Mikey hits the nearby ropes and than drops his entire body weight on Vox – crushing him and sending the air out of his lungs in the process. As Mikey gets to his feet, Black makes a run for him but is immediately met with a spine-buster from the rotund former Heavyweight Champion. Black slams to the canvas as Kagura spies a moment to catch Mikey off guard. She stalks Mikey from behind, waiting on her moment to strike. But, from seemingly nowhere, Matt runs at her and nails her with a beautiful drop-kick that sends her across the ring with speed.
Copeland: Could it be? Are Live Mas on the same page here, Jack?
Cohen: It wouldn't surprise me at all, Seabass. They have a history of being an unstoppable tag team. It would make a lot of sense for both of them to work together to try and get a bit furhter in this match.
Connor: And who would be able to stop them if they did, Jack? I don't agree with it but I can see why it is an attractive proposition to both.
The crowd are on their feet as Mikey and Matt finally resume their positions in the middle of the ring. They both look around the ring, looking for the next competitor to take on but no one is ready for it – They have cleared the ring. The crowd beginning a chant of “LIVE MAS” as Mikey and Matt share a smile one more time. But any dreams of both men working together are quickly dashes as they share a fist bump and tie up, just like before. Both men struggle for position but it is Mikey who manages to get the better of the situation, landing a swift knee to the gut of his brother in arms. He hits the ropes once more and goes for a knee to the side of Matt's temple. Matt, somehow, manages to get out of the way and then catches Mikey with a bulldog before he can turn around. The fans give a cheer for the sportsmanship between the two men as they both struggle to get back to their feet. Matt catches Mikey with a few chops to the chest as they both make their way into a corner of the ring. Matt continues to pepper Mikey with shots but Mikey fires back with an elbow to the jaw. Suddenly, the timer appears on the tron for the final time.
Cohen: The timer is on again, Seabass! It's got to be Blazing Tiger, we haven't seen anything from him and he was announced.
Copeland: It's got to be, right?
5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
#30 – Constantine
Copeland: It can't be, can it!?
After the opening chords of Constantine's music begins, the Hall of Fame superstar makes his appearance onto the stage. The fans in the arena are all on their feet and cheering louder than anything Constantine has ever heard in his entire career. No one can believe what they are seeing as the former Heavyweight Champion stands on the stage, his music blasting out. Constantine looks down at his knee – bandaged and protected visibly as he nods and begins walking towards the ring.
Cohen: IT IS, SEABASS! CONSTANTINE IS HERE!!
Constantine looks into the ring as he marches towards his fate. One more chance to main event Kingdom Come and fulfil his final dream in WZCW. Mikey Stormrage and Matt Tastic control the ring as they look at each other with a look of concern on their face. Each of them begin shouting at the other until Constantine rolls under the bottom rope and is immediately set upon by Mikey and Matt. Both member of Live Mas begins stomping the Power Trip but Constantine manages to fight his way up, punching both Matt and Mikey anywhere he can for a second of respite. He finally gets to a vertical base but is soon caught by a super-kick to the chin from Matt Tastic. Constantine stumbles backwards and rests against the ropes with both arms outstretched and a dazed look upon his aged features. Mikey signals to Matt to go for the double clothesline but Constantine manages to duck underneath their arms. All three square up and Constantine launches a double clothesline of his own, catching both Mikey and Matt and propelling them over the top rope and out of the match! The crowd burst into life as Constantine staggers backwards in sheer shock!
Harrys: Both Matt Tastic and Mikey Stormrage have been eliminated!
Copeland: He's did it! Constantine has eliminated two of his fiercest rivals and is one step closer to main eventing Kingdom Come!
Cohen: He's my pick, Seabass! Constantine is going all the way, I can feel it!
Constantine looks down at Mikey and Matt on the floor with a stunned look upon his face but he is soon woken from his daze as Vox grabs him by the scruff of the neck and runs him towards the ropes, hoping to eliminate the Power Trip and improve his own odds of main eventing Kingdom Come. The crowd take a sharp intake of breath as Constantine ears the ropes but manages to reverse the move and tosses Vox staright over the top and onto the floor below!
Harrys: Vox has been eliminated!
Connor: Vox is gone! And just like that we are down to 5!
Constantine grabs the top rope and looks down at the wreckage he has caused. On the floor, Mikey, Matt and Vox sit cursing their luck. Suddenly, however, Titus sneaks up behind the Power Trip and unceremoniously tosses him straight over the top rope and onto the pile of bodies that he had caused! The crowd cannot believe it! Constantine gets to his knees and puts both of his hands on his head. His chances of main eventing Kingdom Come are over...
Harrys: Constantine has been eliminated!
Copeland: No! What a sad way for the career of John Constantine to end after such an exhilarating return. He must have thought that it was going to be his night after eliminating Mikey, Matt and Vox in short order. But he took his eye off of the ball and Titus ended it all.
Cohen: There's no shame in that, Seabass. He is running on fumes in terms of his career. He tried one more time to get to the Kingdom Come main event and he failed. But 29 others will fail tonight, there's no shame in it.
Connor: He looks utterly distraught.
Titus offers Constantine a sickening smile as he turns back to the ring and settles in the near corner. As is traditional, all 4 competitors who are left in the match all seem to have found their way to a corner of their own. All 3 men and 1 woman get to their feet and the stare down continues. In the rafters, the Kingdom Come sign hangs in the balance. All 4 competitors look at it as the crowd give them all a massive cheer in anticipation. Blades lets go of a massive breath of air as the tension begins to rise. Suddenly, all 4 competitors run at each other and a massive brawl breaks out in the middle of the ring!
Copeland: And this is it, folks! You can feel the electricity in the air. One of these competitors is going to Kingdom Come to face off against Eve Taylor for the Heavyweight Championship. 4 competitors of ridiculous talent and all of whom could win. 4 former Heavyweight Champions in their own right and 2 former Lethal Lottery winners too!
Cohen: You can see how much this means to everyone in that ring, Cat, they are leaving nothing in their tanks now. And that's the way it should be! Kingdom Come is beckoning and only one of these competitors gets to go! Who's it gonna be?
Connor: Who wants it more? Who's got what it takes!?
All 4 competitors battle in the middle of the ring until it is clear that Garth Black and Kagura have gotten the better of Titus and Tyrone Blades. Black leathers Titus with a punch to the jaw that sends him reeling back into the corner from which he came. Black looks like he is still pretty fresh and is putting the screws to Titus. Meanwhile, Kagura looks keen to reclaim her spot at Kingdom Come and is doing the same to Tyrone Blades. Kagura manages to hoist Blades up onto the top rope, a familiar scenario for Blades during this Lottery match. Blades struggles against the hold and finally manages to lash out at Kagura – causing her to drop him back into the ring. Blades takes the opportunity to reclaim some of his momentum and retaliates with a running high knee to the face of the most former Heavyweight Champion. Kagura stumbles backwards and then falls into the corner of the ring. Blades watches Kagura fall into the corner and then runs at her once more, nailing her with a stomp to her torso. Meanwhile, Titus is still struggling with Black and now finds himself being lifted towards the top rope. The fans are on their feet as one of the most hated men in the company now finds himself on the wrong end of a potential elimination. Black gives one final hoist and Titus goes over the top, landing on the apron and standing up. The fans are going crazy as Black goes to nail him with a final punch that would take Titus out of the match. Titus manages to get an arm up to block the punch and then fires back with a punch of his own. Black staggers backwards and Titus scurries through the ropes again.
Copeland: The EurAsian Champion almost found himself out of the match there, folks. But as it stands at the moment, we still have 4 former Heavyweight Champions in the ring.
Cohen: The toils of this match are starting to show, especially on Titus and Blades who have been in the match the longest now, Over 20 minutes of surviving and doing just enough.
Titus gets back into the ring and gives Black a kick to the guts. Black bends over and Titus nails him with a stunning DDT that takes Black back to the mat. Black rolls over but is met with an immediate attack from Tyrone Blades. Blades hits the ropes and then stomps Black with the same move as he just attacked Kagura with. Black lets out a yell of agony as both Titus and Blades gets back to their feet. Titus tells Blades to pull Black back to his feet and Blades obliges. Titus gives Blades a nod to give Black a kick and that soon happens. Titus hits the ropes and then nails Black with THE TIT DROP (Fame Asser). The crowd goes wild as Titus soon pulls Black back to his feet and urges Blades to help him toss Black out. Soon enough, both men grab Black and throw him over the top rope!
Harrys: Garth Black has been eliminated!
Connor: And we are now down to 3! The most former Heavyweight Champion, looking for a way back to the main event of Kingdom Come, the EurAsian Champion who has beaten everyone who has stood before him, and the most successful Heavyweight Champion in the history of this company! I couldn't have picked a better top 3!
Copeland: And it looks as though Titus and Blades are echoing their days as the Hollow Ones now, Cat. A very dangerous alliance if it comes to fruition.
Cohen: Wait a minute!
As soon as Garth hits the floor, Titus grabs Blades' hair and runs him towards the ropes. He tosses Blades over the top rope, much to the surprise and shock of the Sydney fans. However, as he has done so many times in this match, Blades manages to hang on and stand on the apron. Titus goes for the punch and it catches Blades on the chin – causing one of his hands to let go. Titus goes for another punch but is met with a block from Blades, who is now fighting for his survival more than any other time in the match. The crowd cheer as Blades rallies on the apron – still in an uncompromising situation. The heat, however, is soon turned up as Kagura begins to move towards him. The crowd don't want to see Blades dumped out as Kagura lands a swift kick through the ropes and then grabs Blades by the neck in a headlock position. Soon enough, Titus joins in on the act and is looking for a double suplex. With all of the strength that Blades has left in his body, he resists the lift and, somehow, manages to pull both Titus and Kagura over the top so that all three are now standing on the apron. The crowd cannot believe what they are seeing as all three fight for the ultimate win!
Cohen: Look at this, Seabass! This is the end of it all, I can feel it!
With Kagura on his left and Titus now on his right on the apron, Blades finds himself in the middle of a danger sandwich. He immediately lashes out at Titus, landing a stiff punch to the jaw that sends Titus staggering backwards a little. Blades then turns his attention to Kagura but is immediately caught with a kick to the guts one more time. With revenge in his heart for the jaw-jacker, Titus goes for the lariat to the back of Blades' head but as Blades ducks, he catches Kagura on the chin and sends her flying to the floor below! Blades wriggles through the ropes and back to safety.
Harrys: Kagura has been eliminated!
Copeland: That's it, ladies and gentlemen! We are down to the final 2 in the 9th annual Lethal Lottery event! And what's more, they are both former winners! For the first time in WZCW history, we will have a 2 time winner of the Lethal Lottery event!
Connor: And you might have bet that it would have been Blades and Titus who would have made it this far. Two WZCW legends have outlasted 28 others and will now fight for the right to make, yet more, WZCW history!
Cohen: One man goes on to face Eve Taylor at the 9th Kingdom Come event!
Titus looks down at Kagura on the floor with a look of shock on his face. It might not have been his intention to eliminate her but it certainly worked out to his benefit. Blades crawls across the mat as Titus re-enters the ring. With the EurAsian Champion standing tall in the ring, many of the Sydney WZCW loyal are expecting him to begin his final assault on Blades. But, rather curiously, Titus stands still – looking around the crowd as Blades begins pulling himself back to a vertical base. A stoic look crosses the features of the EurAsian Champion as he picks out one sign in the front row of the crowd. Blades gets to his feet and looks stunned that he has not been attacked yet. Titus begins talking to him under the noise of thousands of fans yelling their encouragement for both. Titus extends his finger towards the sign that reads “With Love, The Hollow Ones”. Titus allows a smile to appear on his face as he extends a hand towards Blades. The crowd are on their feet and clapping furiously as Blades studies his opponent for a second. Titus points to the sign one more time and nods his head silently. Blades nods his head and extends his hand as both men share a handshake in the middle of the ring.
Copeland: Wow! What a moment this is, folks. Both Titus and Tyrone Blades were two of the driving forces behind ridding this company of the blight that was Vis Imperium. Titus and Blades have given this company everything they have and now they get the chance to see who the better man really is.
Connor: Two legends of this industry that have done more for the name WZCW than anyone else possibly could have. What an amazing moment they have shared.
Cohen: Both of these men have been in the match for about 30 minutes now and will be feeling the toils of how physically demanding this match can be. This match is all about who wants it more!
Suddenly, both men drop the handshake and begin pounding each other with fists, similar to something from an ice hockey fight. The crowd explode into life as the two Hall of Fame superstars that remain leave everything in the ring – fighting to make history and, once again, headline the biggest show of the year. The punches continue for about 15 seconds until both men look physically exhausted. Blades nails Titus with one final uppercut that sends Titus reeling backwards. Titus hits the ropes and uses the momentum to spring back towards Blades, nailing him with a clothesline of his own. Blades hits the canvas once more as Titus stands above him. Avison takes a deep breath as he begins pummelling Blades with heavy stomps to the chest and limbs. Blades attempts to get back up but Titus nails him with another stomp to the back that sends him back down. Titus shakes his head as Blades continues to try getting back up – unleashing another stomp to Blades' back that sends him down again. Titus shakes his head once more before mouthing something to Blades. Suddenly, Titus walks away from Blades and slides under the bottom rope, collecting a steel chair from ringside and then going back in.
Copeland: No, Titus! The man is beat! There's no need for this!
Cohen: The problem with that notion, Seabass, is that Blades just never knows that he's beat. Titus is the only man left standing and yet Blades can't recognise that his match is done! The race is run and Titus is the winner.
Connor: Don't count Blades out just yet, Jack.
Titus gets back into the ring as Blades begins getting up once more. Titus stalks his prey like a lion stalking an antelope. A look of anger crosses the features of the EurAsian Champion as everyone in the audience, barring the TMZ, boo loudly. With chair in hand, Titus waits for Blades to get back to his feet and turn around. He swings the chair but Blades manages to duck out the way at the last moment. Titus hurls around, his momentum turning him inside out. Suddenly. Baldes nails him with CLICK, CLACK (Superkick) that sends Titus reeling towards the ropes! With everything he has left, Blades finishes the move with the running knee that connects with the chair and then Titus' forehead! The EurAsian Champion tumbles over the top rope and onto the floor below! Blades has done it!!
Copeland: I DON'T BELIEVE IT! TYRONE BLADES HAS WON THE 9TH LETHAL LOTTERY!
Harrys: Titus Avison has been eliminated! Therefore, the winner of this match, and heading onto Kingdom Come, TYRRRROOOOONE BLADES!!
Titus looks absolutely devastated on the outside of the ring as he looks up to the rafters. Mr. Jones pats him on the back as if to say no hard feelings. In the middle of the ring, Blades gets to one knee and is immediately greeted by a referee, who holds his arm aloft. Blades looks stunned as he looks at his own arm being raised into the air. He runs both of his hands through his hair as he looks around the audience who, to a person, are on their feet for the WZCW legend. He has entertained them all!
Cohen: What a moment for Tyrone Blades, Seabass. The first two time winner of the Lethal Lottery match and absolutely deserved it. He's going to Kingdom Come to take on Eve Taylor. And what a match that ought to be!
Connor: And that right there, Jack, is all you need to know!
In the ring, Blades moves towards the corner of the ring and mounts the turn-buckle. He points towards the Kingdom Come sign high in the rafters as the crowd continue to applaud and cheer for his performance.
Copeland: What a night it has been, ladies and gentlemen! The Road to Kingdom Come is well and truly upon us. Tyrone Blades has won his second Lethal Lottery and has booked his spot at Kingdom Come! What other matches and surprises await us at the 9th Kingdom Come? We will soon find out! But for now, thank you for joining us!
The final shot of the night is Blades raising his chin up with tears in his eyes, pointing towards the sign...
