Becky Serra and Chuck Myles are backstage by the WZCW logo. Both are holding a glass of champagne and clash glasses.
Becky: Here's to the next 10 years Chuck, I must say I thought this show would flop but it's been fun.
Chuck: Ricky and Will was phenomenal and Armando is truly buried.
Becky: Mikey will be a loss but here's to the future and to see what KFAD brings us.
Chuck: Damn rights. Wait...
The camera turns to show Barbosa who's stood there muttering to himself. The General Managers nod and walk off without saying a word. The former world champion looks around.
Where is he?
No! He can't be.
Barbosa looks to the corner of the room. The pile of boxes moves and it's obvious now that it's not storage but the mandroid S.H.I.T!
Barbosa's eyes narrow.
S.H.I.T's eyes narrow.
Barbosa throws a punch that is blocked by the robot and counters with a piston chop, Barbosa staggers back and falls over a chair. S.H.I.T marches forward and stomps through the chair, smashing it to bits. The robot throws a left and right that are expertly dodged by Barbosa and countered with a spinning heel kick to the robots chest.
S.H.I.T makes a dial up noise and staggers back, he bumps into a jukebox and a record falls, Mr. Roboto by Styx plays as Barbosa tackles S.H.I.T and they go crashing through a wall sending jiprock powder flying everywhere. The sign - Wardrobe Room- shakes as both combatants brawl inside the room.
They crash through another section of wall and continue punching and counter punching each other. They stop for a moment and look at each other. Barbosa is suddenly dressed like Super Mario. S.H.I.T has a Donald Trump costume on. They both shrug and continue fighting.
An innocent official is whistling and pushing a cart full of deserts in the middle of the hall, S.H.I.T tackles Barbosa and they both land on the cart and roll quickly down the hall. They keep punching and headbutting each other as the cart flies down a flight of stairs. The speed and momentum send the cart with both fighters crashing out of a window on to a passing transfer truck. Both almost roll off but stay on the fast moving vehicle.
Barbosa grabs S.H.I.T in a headlock and they tumble towards the front, they fall in between the trailer and rig and continue fighting. Barbosa rips out a bunch of wires and sticks them in the robots neck, sparks fly in the air as S.H.I.T is getting electrocuted.
He grabs both of Barbosa's arms, transferring the electricity. The rig and trailer detach, both men grab on to the rig as a fire starts to spread up the back of the rig wall, the trailer twists and rolls behind them as they climb to the roof of the truck. The driver jumps out as a street car passes in front of them.
Booooom!!! The rig smashes through the street car and the trailer rolls and ramps right over the wreckage. S.H.I.T and Barbosa roll off of the rig as it explodes!!
Barbosa opens his eyes, he raises his fist as he see's S.H.I.T getting to his feet. CRASH!!! The trailer lands right on S.H.I.T, crushing him. Barbosa stands there, he's cut up and bloody. He let's out a big relieving sigh as he turns and walks down the street, into the bright orange sunset.
Deep within the wreckage of the trailer, the top half of S.H.I.T is still visible. The camera zooms in on his face, his eyes are closed. The camera zooms in on his eyes... they open.

We transition elsewhere, it’s the locker room of Vis Imperium and in a rare occurrence we find all four members of the group. Mark Keaton is dressed for his match, as is Justin Cooper, while Xander LeBelle and Andrew Adonis are in suits.
Cooper: It’s been far too long, gentlemen. Forgive me for missing so many of our meetings, you know how it is, being World Champion means time is of the essence. Luckily, tonight is a night of celebration for not just this company but for us.
All three men nod as a waitress, who Mark Keaton can’t take his eyes off, brings around glasses of champagne. Each man takes a glass and raises it into the air.
Cooper: We did exactly what needed to be done at Gold Rush. The World Championship remained in my hands and that is the most important thing. That is why we are here. We do what is best for the group, we are unselfish, a leaderless faction, and one of cooperation.
Keaton: Vis Imperium does need to keep the World Championship. You’re right, Justin.
A smirk comes over the face of Cooper as he clinks glasses with Keaton.
Cooper: And why do we need to keep the title?
Keaton: Because it’s power! It keeps the sheep chasing after us rather than us chasing them.
Cooper: Exactly, my friend. See, the best thing for this group, for all of us, is for I to remain WZCW World Heavyweight Champion.
LeBelle and Adonis take a sip of their bubbly as Cooper steps toward them.
Cooper: You put up a good fight at Gold Rush, Xander. Don’t hang your head in shame. Tyrone… I mean Ty, is a tricky puzzle for the best of us.
Adonis: We had him exactly where we wanted him, Justin. Xander was moments away from drawing blood from the insolent fool! We took his Mayhem Championship and if we had a second chance, we could end his entire career.
LeBelle: No doubt. I know how to beat him. I just need another chance, Justin. You’ve seen what I can do. My Rose’s Thorn put Blades…
A bitter look comes over the face of Cooper.
LeBelle: My Rose’s Thorn put Ty down for the count once. It can and will do it again!
Keaton: Lads, do not worry about the likes of Ty Burna. Tonight, is a celebration of what we have achieved. We have taken this company to the next level. We stand here, all of us, as former champions. And tonight, I shall achieve my greatest accomplishment when I become King for a Day!
Another round of drinks is provided as the group form a circle in the middle of the room.
Adonis: For the best interest of Vis Imperium!
LeBelle: For Mr. Banks and all his wisdom!
Keaton: For the best damn faction in professional wrestling and all our sexy female fans… who can reach me at room 456 at Hotel California, tonight!
The last to hold up his glass is the World Champion; Cooper smirks, downing his drink, and the raises his glass.
Cooper: Long may I reign.
The scenes fades to black as the remaining three members of Vis Imperium finish their drinks while Cooper watches on confidently.

Harrys: The following contest is a BATTLE ROYALE and it is for the number one contender to the EURASIAN CHAMPIONSHIP. Introducing first...
Harrys: From The Pentagon, weighing in at 308 pounds..War Zone!!!
The lights go out as Imagine Dragons' Radioactive plays. The huge, muscular figure slowly walks his way to the top of the ramp and a spotlight dims on him. He holds his forearm and simulates holding a weapon, he points it at the ceiling and a huge pyro shoots from the stage and explodes overhead. War Zone shakes his head and stomps his way down the ramp. He stands there, glaring at a nearby fan with a Tony Mancini sign reading - Rising up the card- He shakes his head and climbs in the ring. The crowds continue to boo him mildly.
Copeland: Here we are,the Eurasian Battle Royale! What do you think of this tank of a man Jack?
Cohen: This guy has a lot of potential! Just look at the size of him! If he can learn to quiet his mind and just use his power he will go places.
Connor: His biceps are bigger than my head guys.
Harrys: And his opponent......
Harrys: He is hailing from Yonkers, NY, weighing 275 pounds...The Italian Stallion, Tony Mancini!
A smattering of cheers as Xaitlyn Serpiente walks out to the top of the ramp to no music, after a moment, Tony comes out ten seconds into his entrance music. They walk to the ring together, waving at the fans. Tony takes a breath and gets himself ready before climbing in the ring, Xaitlyn walks around to the other side of the ring over by a slew of outside officials. Tony climbs in the ring, he removes his Cornicello Charm his mother gave him, he goes to kiss it......
Copeland: Whoa!! Look out!!
....War Zone clubs Mancini from behind with a powerful forearm smash, dropping him face first to the mat quickly. War Zone picks up the charm and spits on it, he throws it over the top ropes then yells that he's going to do the same thing to Tony. He picks up Tony by the hair and smashes his face off of the top turnbuckle, over and over again, then drops him to the mat. He starts stomping away at Mancini with ruthless aggression! Harrys rolls under the ropes and throws his microphone away, he doesn't want anything to do with the monster in the ring.
Connor: Wow!! Look at this! Yemrez is wasting no time charging to the ring!!
Yemrez throws her flag to one side as she sprints down the ramp, War Zone a target in her eyes, the fans pop for her determination. She charges up and spins War Zone around and starts laying in lefts and rights! Every shot making smacking noises that reverberats around the arena, getting the fans into it more!
Copeland: Listen to this crowd! Yemrez is a house on fire!
Cohen: I commend her bravery, but she is punching a mountain right now! War Zone is barely fazed by these shots Seabass!
Waz Zone laughs and wipes his mouth, he shoves Yemrez who goes flying right across the ring, eliciting a oooooh! from the capacity crowd. He turns to continue his stomping on Mancini but The Italian Stallion is already back on his feet! He lays in lefts and rights to War Zone who is reeling backwards now from the powerful punches thrown at him. Tony grabs War Zone and attempts a suplex but the giant man just shoves Tony away, back into the turnbuckle, Tony rebounds out of the turnbuckle into a big boot right in the face sending him to the canvas. Yemrez runs and jumps at the big man but he catches her and hits Detonation! in mid air, a strong reverse choke slam right on to Tony on the mat! War Zone lets out a primal roar and punches the nearest turnbuckle.
The crowds cheer as Wren runs out to the stage, ignoring her usual routine, she see's the problem in the ring and runs down the ramp much like Yemrez did earlier.
Copeland: Here comes Wren! She wants that Eurasian title and if that means going through a monster like War Zone then that's what she's going to do!
Cohen: I think we're seeing an obvious problem here Seabass! Here comes another small, one hundred and fifty pound wrestler jumping in the ring against the three hundred pound beast!
Connor: You can never count out wren Jack! She's beaten Titus Avison in the past and that has to be her motivation here!
Wren slides in the ring, but War Zone grabs her and picks her up easily. He runs across the ring and plants her with a running powerslam! Boom!! War Zone pops to his feet and looks at the destruction he's caused so far. Tony slaps the mat and runs right at War Zone, he clubs the big man in the chest with a clothesline! No effect! War Zone shakes his head then tells him to try again. Tony bounces off the ropes and runs fast, slap!! Another clothesline that makes War Zone take one step back. Tony bounces off the ropes again and runs but War Zone attacks! He nails Tony with a clothesline of his own that drops the New Yorker instantly. Wren gets to her feet but War Zone kicks her back down, he does the same with Yemrez, but he continues to stomp her in the back over and over again. The crowds start booing loudly and watching the Titantron, waiting for somebody to come and deal with this man....
A pop from the crowds as Obi Okafor runs down the ramp, his flower girls shrugging and walking back towards the locker room.
Copeland: Here comes Obi Okafor! At Goldrush,we saw this young man take a terrible impact from a golfcart that would have killed a normal man in his Mayhem match against Randy Studd!
Connor: Well I hope The King can do something to stop this madness in the ring!
Obi Okafor slides in the ring, he quickly rolls out of the way of War Zone trying to grab him, he hits War Zone with a leg kick, a dropkick and lefts and rights! He jumps and hits a single arm DDT on the big man, sending him down on his head. The crowds are buzzing from the offense, War Zone pops right up to his feet and shakes off the cobwebs. War Zone runs and attempts a Missle of Death superman punch but Obi dodges it, he hits War Zone with a left, right, left, right, left, right, left, right....!! War Zone is staggering and on the ropes! Obi bounces off the ropes and runs, he jumps but War Zone catches him in mid air with a big boot, sending Obi down to the mat quickly. War Zone runs and catches Tony with a forearm, dropping him again. He runs and hits both Wren and Yemrez with a double clothesline backflipping both wrestlers to the mat!
The crowds cheer as they beg Vox to do something about War Zone, who is now standing in the ring, waiting for Vox with bodies all around him. Vox walks down the ramp slowly, in no hurry to get in the ring, he has an earpiece microphone extended around to his mouth.
Vox: San Jose! God bless you all! How do you like barely being able to afford living cheque to cheque every time? Housing prices are at an all time high right now because there are lots of high paying jobs and this city has grown to the edge of the mountains- there is not much more easily buildable land. This can change ladies and gentleman....it can change with me. Just a simple donation of ten dollars, tonight...and you can make a difference.
Vox slowly makes his way around the ring, picking up a donation here and there, then continues....
Vox: Why can't we have cheap housing? It's because of people like War Zone. He weighs so much and takes up so much space that the cost of materials to build around these giant men put the national average up, and when that goes up, so does the price for us little guys. The regular Joe like you and me. Thank you Miss, god bless. What is ten dollars versus the cost of a roof over your head?
Copeland: Why can't this nitwit just get in the ring already?!
Cohen: I don't know, this might be his greatest cause yet! Vox is getting some serious dollars here at ringside! Why rush to get in the ring when business is good?
War Zone jumps through the middle ropes, he grabs Vox and presses him over his head! Money flies everywhere as he launches Vox over the top ropes and right into the ring. War Zone rolls under the bottom ropes.
DING DING DING!!!
Cohen: Wait a second?! Ha ha! Am I hearing things?Did the starting bell just ring?
Connor: The match wasn't officially on the way,it's on now though! And look out guys! It looks like an alliance has formed here!
War Zone is standing on one side of the ring, across are Tony, Wren, Yemrez and Obi, all staring down the beast. He screams for them to attack and they do, all four launch into War Zone with punches and kicks but he fights back! He drops each one with a single punch each! War Zone stomps over to the far ropes and screams a war cry to that section of fans, who respond with boo's. He smirks then turns around....
...right into Nigh The Bliss!! The double running knee strike by Yemrez NAILS War Zone right in the face! He falls back and topples over the top ropes right to the floor on the outside!
Huge pop for Yemrez as she pumps her fist and smiles wide for the fans.
Harrys: War Zone has been eliminated!
Connor: I didn't think anyone was eliminating him tonight! What a move by Yemrez! YES! I love it!!
Wren attacks Yemrez from behind and dumps her over the top ropes, but Yemrez holds on and falls to the apron, she pulls herself back under the ropes. Obi and Tony start exchanging shots, hard lefts and rights, Tony getting the better of him as Obi staggers to the ropes, Tony starts to try and eliminate Obi, who hooks his arms on the ropes to avoid it.
Vox is on the outside of the ring, the temptation of a high paying audience too much for him to handle. He's taking more donations. He takes his ear piece off and sells that as well.
Wren hits Yemrez with a shining wizard, then hops to the top turnbuckle and executes a beautiful moonsault. Tony grabs Wren by the back of her neck and throws her hard through the second and top turnbuckle, launching her shoulder into the ringpost! Obi grabs Tony and hits a gutwrench suplex, bouncing him off the mat. Obi grabs Wren by the hair and hauls her to her feet. He launches her off of the ropes and backs up as she runs towards him, he gives her a backbody drop over the top ropes...but she does a quick front flip and lands on the top ropes, showing unbelievable agility. Obi quickly pushes her back, launching her far to the outside of the ring, she reaches and grabs the barricade!! She's half hanging on the barricade, her feet not touching the padded mats on the outside.
Copeland: Wren has the agility of a cat! She's hanging on to that barricade after that amazing front flip balancing act!
Cohen: How in the world is she going to get back in though?
Wren balances herself and stands on the top of the barricade. She bends her knees and leaps towards the ring....but a pile of money hits her in the face distracting her! The money flies everywhere and Wren falls to the padded floor!
Harrys: Wren has been eliminated!
Vox laughs and starts scooping the money up on the mats. He tucks the cash in his pockets and rolls in the ring. Tony Mancini clotheslines him right over the top ropes, sending his money flying again and Vox cartwheeling to the padded mats, right next to Wren! Tony and Obi double team Yemrez and double press her right over the top ropes! She falls right on top Vox and Wren!
Harrys:Yemrez Raqonic has been elminated!
Harrys: Vox has been eliminated!
Copeland: Here we go! It's down to Obi Okafor and Tony Mancini! One of these two men is going on to become the number one contender to the Eurasian Title!
Both men circle each other in the middle of the ring, the fans are on their feet now, buzzing at the tension. Tony hits a right, Obi responds with a left, Tony swings and misses a clothesline, he bounces off of the ropes, Obi falls to his chest and Tony hops over him and bounces off the far ropes, Obi jumps for a dropkick but Tony quickly grabs both of his legs and Obi falls on his back, Tony leans back and catapults Obi right into the top ropes! Obi is hanging and teetering on the ropes, trying to get his balance back. Tony runs and lifts Obi's legs, sending Obi flipping over! Tony turns and runs across the ring, tears welling up in his eyes as he yells in celebration. He climbs the turnbuckle and raises his arms. Xaitlyn is trying to get his attention on the outside but he's way too happy to listen to her right now. Obi is still hanging on! He skins the cat and flips backwards back into the ring. He sees Tony celebrating, he runs across the ring and dropkicks Tony right in the back, Tony falls over the ringpost and out of the ring!!!!
Harrys: Tony Mancini has....
Harrys: Landed on the ringsteps and is still in this match!
Obi can't believe his eyes as he looks at Tony laying on the ringsteps, just out of his reach.
Copeland: Tony just got lucky there! Obi has to take advantage here to win this match!
Tony slowly crawls to the apron, then he climbs the ropes to his feet...only to be face to face with a smiling Obi. Tony panics and throws a punch but Obi pushes him, at the last second Tony reaches out and grabs the top rope with his left hand, Obi punches it away, Tony switches to his right hand, Obi punches it away, Tony switches to his left, then right, Obi tries to push Tony off the apron again but Tony ducks and attempts a shoulder block to the gut but Obi counters with a knee lift that sends Tony to the canvas face first. Obi walks to the center of the ring and points to the fans, he yells that it's over and picks up Tony. He has him in a suplex position...Obi goes for The Awakening vertical suplex stunner but Tony wiggles out of it and pushes both men fast towards the ropes...they both tumble over the top ropes....
Tony grabs the middle rope at the last second and Obi falls to the padded mat!!!
Harrys: Obi Okafor has been eliminated! The winner of this match and the NEW number one contender to the Eurasian Championship....Tony Manciiiiiiniiii!!!!!
Copeland:Wow!! What a finish!!! This place has become unglued here for Tony Mancini!
Cohen: Tony dug down deep and did a real smart move there by pushing them over the top ropes, causing the momentum to have Obi at the bottom when they flipped over the ropes! Who knows Seabass! We could be looking at the next Eurasian Champion right here!!
Connor: You can't deny the early dominance by War Zone though, that was getting really tense. We can expect big things from this big man. Congratulations to Tony Mancini.
Tony is in the ring celebrating with Xaitlyn, holding his ribs from the crash on the steel steps. He walks towards the camera and mouths that he's coming for the title and he can't be stopped.

Backstage former WZCW Luke Manson is pacing up and down. You can hear the crowd from outside as Tony Manicni appears with Xaitlyn Serpiente in tow. He's also joined by Gino as the three are celebrating.
Mancini: Yes! What a win! Now I'm coming for the EurAsian. As an Italian why not bring the title home?!
The three high five each other as Manson interuppts.
Manson Hey man. Good win out there, I need some advice.
Mancini: I expected you in that earlier match. You're as big a star as PCIII, Angel and Armando!
Manson shakes his head.
Manson I'm waiting on fatherhood advice. I'm waiting on Maury to give me the answer, what if I am?
Mancini: That's up to you man. I'm off the celebrate.
The Mancini entourage disappears as out of nowhere Maury Povich appears.
Maury: Luke Manson, in the case of 13 year old Sebastian you are...NOT the father!
Luke Manson suddenly dances all round backstage. He hugs backstage Bob and jumps up on flight cases. His front of joy hiding the fact he's really heart broken. What a mess of a man. Don't we all hate him?

Harrys: The following contest is a tag team match and is scheduled for one fall!
Frank Mortlock makes his way out to cheers from the crowd, appreciating the return of the detective to WZCW. He walks down the ramp, removing his coat and hat and hanging them up on a ring post before entering the ring, throwing a few shadow punches.
Harrys: Introducing first, from Gloom Springs, Frank Mortlock!
Copeland: It's been some time since we've seen Detective Mortlock here in WZCW, tonight he pairs up in an unlikely tag team.
Cohen: Frankly I'm surprised he was able to deduce a way to get here Seabass.
The crowd pops loudly as the good Doctor Alhazred makes his way out from the back, his fist held high in the air with the Power Glove showing off in all it's glory. He walks briskly down the ramp, soaking in the response before sliding into the ring, holding the Power Glove up high once more.
Harrys: And his tag team partner, from His Hidden Underground Laboratory, Dr. Alhazred!
Connor: The former tag team champion Dr. Alhazred certainly hasn't been forgotten by these fans.
Cohen: Alhazred is someone missed by these morons because he's an agent of chaos. Mr. Banks has done a great job keeping order round these parts now.
The fans cheer loudly as the first Gold Rush winner rushes out to the right part of the stage, lifting his fist up in in the air as the Dirty One Gordito gets the crowd fired up. He plays to the crowd before heading down the entrance ramp, slapping hands before sliding into the ring and climbing a turnbuckle, beating his chest with both arms before lifting his fists up, yelling out once more.
Harrys: And their opponents, first, from San Francisco, California, he is the Dirty One, Gordito!
Copeland: Gordito was the very first Gold Rush winner in WZCW history, and went on to face none other than the now Tyrone Blades for the world title. He's been a fan favorite ever since.
Cohen: He came up short though Seabass, so why are we celebrating him again?
The crowd roars as the one of the greatest Tag Team Champions makes his way out. As Saboteur stands at the top of the entrance stage, he motions for the crowd to make more noise before spinning around and pointing towards the ring. He makes his way down the ramp, stopping to take photos with fans and those that aren't even asking him for one. He slides in the ring and climbs a turnbuckle, withdrawing his katanas and forming an X in front of him.
Harrys: And his tag team partner, from Union City, New Jersey, being accompanied by Action Saxtion...Saboteur!
Connor: Saboteur is a celebrated former Tag Team alongside Action Saxton, tonight he teams with Gordito, but there's no doubt he'll be showing off his Tag Team expertise.
Cohen: I still contend Saboteur was robbed in Hell in a Cell a few years ago. He should have been World Champion.
Saboteur turns and points to the titantron as Action Saxton appears. He runs down the ramp, through the ring, out the ring and into the crowd. It seems like he has spotted Latin Music star Ricky Martin and will take his fight with him off camera.
Referee Elizabeth Prince calls for the bell to start the match as Gordito and Saboteur play rock paper scissors to start. Gordito wins which doesn't amuse Saboteur but he exits to the apron as Mortlock looks to start for his team. Gordito looks to lockup but Mortlock takes on an old style boxing stance. he throws a quick right cross but Gordito catches him and whips him into the ropes. He looks for a hip toss but Mortlock stiffens, hitting Gordito with a shot to the stomach but Gordito retaliates with a stiff backhand chop. The crowd cheers for the shot as Mortlock grimaces holding his chest as Gordito delivers another one, forcing Mortlock into the corner. He ducks under the ropes as Prince forces Gordito back, eliciting boos from the crowd. Gordito backs up and motions for Mortlock to face him in the center. Mortlock shakes his head and walks over to his corner, tagging in Alhazred who enters the ring. Saboteur meanwhile yells for Gordito to tag him in, while jumping up and down on the apron. Gordito looks back at Saboteur before nodding his head, tagging in the resident assassin. Saboteur cracks his knuckles as Alhazred pulls the Power Glove tighter on his hand. Suddenly Alhazred goes for Level 5! But Saboteur catches him and tries to tear the Power Glove off! Alhazred retreats quickly, clutching his glove tightly to his chest.
Copeland: A uh, very interesting start to this contest. Alhazred went for the Level 5 right away, but it appears Saboteur is more interested in taking the Power Glove from him.
Cohen: Can you blame him? That glove has knocked out many opponents, who knows what someone like Saboteur would do with it.
Saboteur points at the glove, motioning he wants it but Mortlock suddenly tags himself back into the match to booing from the crowd. Saboteur looks disappointed but doesn't have time to dwell on it as Mortlock grabs him and delivers an uppercut. Saboteur stumbles back from the attack, but Mortlock quickly whips him across into the ropes. He goes for a clothesline but Saboteur ducks under. He ducks under a second clothesline attempt and bounces off the ropes again. He baseball slides under an attempted third clothesline, pulling Mortlock's legs out from underneath him in the process. He quickly begins delivering punches to the face, but Mortlock covers up and Prince warns Saboteur before starting the five count. Saboteur waits until four and gets to his feet, before letting Mortlock get up. He hits a European Uppercut but Mortlock suddenly delivers a stiff jab followed by a cross! Saboteur is knocked to the mat from the stiff punches, as Mortlock goes for the cover, 1..........2....Saboteur kicks out! Alhazred holds his hand out, looking for the tag which Mortlock obliges. Mortlock lifts Saboteur up before dropping him down with an over the shoulder arm drag followed up by a fist drop by Alhazred. Alhazred quickly with the lateral press, 1.........2.....Saboteur kicks out again. Alhazred lifts Saboteur up and punches him square in the stomach, forcing him down to one knee. He bounces off the ropes and connects with a running neckbreaker, Saboteur looking worse for wear suddenly. Alhazred pulls him to his feet, not giving the former tag team champion a chance to breathe as he goes for a back suplex, but Saboteur counters with a standing shiranui! Saboteur slams the back of Alhazred's head to the mat as both are down. They begin crawling to their respective corners, Alhazred getting to Mortlock first, but Saboteur makes the tag to Gordito! Gordito comes in fired up as he delivers a dropkick to Mortlock before clotheslining Alhazred to the outside. Gordito ducks under as Saboteur comes flying over him and the top rope and connecting with Super Saboteur on the outside! The crowd pops loudly with cheers of holy shit as Gordito looks on impressed.
Connor: Saboteur has not missed a step since leaving WZCW it seems. That Super Saboteur lariat was a thing of beauty!
Cohen: What a leap though Cat! He cleared Gordito and the top rope in one jump and connected hard with Alhazred on the outside.
Suddenly Mortlock grabs Gordito from behind and delivers an Inverted Atomic Drop followed by a legsweep! Gordito goes down as Mortlock now begins delivering mounted punches, the crowd booing at the detective as Gordito now tries to cover up. He lifts Gordito up and whips him into the corner and follows up with a running elbow shot. Gordito drops to the mat and Mortlock begins choking him with his foot. Saboteur meanwhile tries to get back in the ring but Alhazred grabs a hold of him and connects with a Rising Dragon Fist! Saboteur is knocked into next week as Alhazred has a sick smile on his face as he gets to his feet, staring down at Saboteur. Meanwhile Prince was up to four before Mortlock stopped the blatant choke. He pulls Gordito up and whips him into the ropes, off the rebound Mortlock delivers a head scissors takedown, dropping Gordito on his head. Mortlock quickly tags Alhazred back in, who climbs up to the middle turnbuckle, and comes off with a diving elbow drop, connecting right across the head of Gordito. Alhazred is back to his feet, swinging his arms before delivering a pendulum elbow to the throat. Gordito begins coughing as he holds his throat, Alhazred slowly stalking his prey.
Copeland: And just like that Alhazred and Mortlock have taken control of this match. Saboteur is still slowly recovering on the outside from the Rising Dragon Fist of Alhazred, and Mortlock has gotten Gordito down.
Cohen: Alhazred seems to be focusing his offense on the head of Gordito. One good Level 5 should knock the Dirty One out for good tonight!
Alhazred lifts Gordito up, while Saboteur on the outside slowly begins crawling around to the other side of the ring. Alhazred delivers a stiff right punch with the Power Glove before running to the ropes. He comes from behind and delivers a one handed bulldog, dropping Gordito down hard. He goes for the cover, 1............2......Gordito kicks out! Alhazred tags Mortlock in who gets in the ring and begins delivering the Prison Stomps. He focuses on each limb until finally delivering a hard kick to the face. He backs up into the ropes and comes off with a knee drop, once more focusing on the head and face of Gordito. He goes for the lateral press, 1............2.....but Gordito shows his resiliency and kicks out once more. He pulls Gordito to his feet and whips him across into the ropes, but Gordito surprises him with a crossbody block! The crowd erupts as both men are down. Prince checks on both but doesn't administer a standing ten count, letting the match continue. Gordito seems to check his head for blood before rolling over, slowly crawling towards his corner as Saboteur drags himself up by the ropes! Mortlock rolls to his corner as Alhazred tags himself in. Gordito reaches out desperately as does Saboteur but Alhazred comes flying in with a punch to the side of the head, preventing Gordito from making the tag.
Connor: I have to say I'm impressed with how Mortlock and Alhazred are working together in this match.
Cohen: Why are you surprised by this Cat? Alhazred is a former World Tag Team Champion just like Saboteur, he knows all the tricks in the book.
Alhazred drags Gordito back to the center of the ring before he begins delivering repeated elbow strikes to his opponent's head. Gordito covers up as Prince checks on him, but seems to be ok with where he's at. Alhazred pulls him to his feet and whips him into the corner. He runs towards him and goes for a punch with the Power Glove but Gordito spins him around at the last second and delivers a hard European Uppercut! Alhazred is rocked and falls to the mat as Gordito stumbles back before running forward and connecting with the Bronco Buster! The crowd roars as Gordito gets to his feet, but Alhazred is back to his feet quickly and delivers a hard heart punch right to the sternum. Gordito is knocked off his feet once more as Alhazred clutches at his chest from the previous attack. Gordito tries to scramble to his corner but he's cut off as Alhazred stops him. He pulls him up and whips him across into the ropes again, this time circling around and applying a Sleeper Hold! Gordito reaches out desperately towards his corner, but Alhazred pulls him back to the center of the ring. The crowd begins cheering wildly for Gordito, trying to put life back into him as he begins to slowly fade.
Copeland: After a brief showing of life from Gordito, Alhazred suddenly has him fading in that sleeper hold.
Cohen: No way he breaks out of it, not with the Power Glove providing Alhazred a clear advantage.
Prince checks on Gordito, who falls to one knee and his eyes close as Alhazred yells for him to give up. Prince lifts Gordito's arm up but Gordito keeps it up and forms a fist, the crowd cheering loudly for him. He slowly gets back up to his feet, delivering a couple stiff shots to the stomach before suddenly turning around and trapping Alhazred's arms and delivering headbutt after headbutt! The crowd roars as Alhazred has no choice but to take each brutal strike to his head, his eyes rolling backwards for a moment as Gordito gives it his all with each headbutt. Suddenly he drops low and lifts Alhazred up and connects with a Samoan Drop! Saboteur goes crazy on the outside, running from corner to corner before holding his hand out for the tag! Both Alhazred and Gordito slowly begin to stir, crawling towards their respective corners as the crowd begins to buzz loudly before promptly erupting as Gordito makes the tag to Saboteur while Alhazred gets the tag to Mortlock. Mortlock rushes in but Saboteur runs towards him as well, spinning him around and connecting with a tornado DDT. Mortlock, though dizzy is back to his feet quickly and both men go for a bell clap, but Saboteur follows it up with a headbutt, connecting with More Cowbell! Mortlock hits the mat hard as Saboteur goes for the cover, 1...........2.......Alhazred runs in to break it up!
Connor: The pace of this match has suddenly picked up as the fresh man Saboteur is in the ring now, attacking everything that moves in there!
Cohen: He better be careful, he attacks the ref and this match is over!
Alhazred begins delivering shots to Saboteur as Prince tries to get Alhazred out of there. He pulls Saboteur up as Prince checks on the assassin, but suddenly Alhazred is dropped with a low blow! Prince didn't see it as Alhazred drops to the ground, holding his crown jewels before rolling out of the ring. Saboteur turns towards Mortlock who suddenly pulls Sabotuer through the ropes to the apron and delivers the Hard Justice rope hung DDT! Mortlock goes for the cover, 1...........2........Saboteur kicks out at the last second! The crowd goes nuts as Mortlock looks disturbed that his maneuver didn't finish the match. He motions that it's time to end this and sits in the corner, waiting for Sabotuer to get up. As he does he goes for Police Brutality, but Saboteur catches the attempted Codebreaker! He throws him into the ropes as Gordito comes flying into the ring and connects with the Cactus Clothesline! He sends him and Mortlock to the outside but before he did so, Alhazred got back on the apron and made the blind tag! Saboteur didn't see it and is too busy looking at the outside when suddenly he turns and is hit with the Level 5 spinning backfist! Saboteur spins around but counters with a Pele kick! GOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAL! Alhazred stumbles backwards and turns around, just in time for Gordito to get back in the ring and pick him up, delivering the Meteor of War facebuster! The woozy Saboteur climbs the top turnbuckle, and comes off of it with Airborne Assassin! He hooks the leg, 1.................2..................3!
Harrys: Here are your winners, the team of Gordito and Saboteur!
Copeland: What a chaotic ending to this tag team match from some great WZCW veterans!
Cohen: That tag never counted! Saboteur pinned the wrong man!
The crowd cheers loudly as Gordito gets to his feet, holding his hands up high in victory while Saboteur seems to have torn the Power Glove away from Alhazred. He holds his hand and the glove high in victory as Gordito gives him a sideways glance. Saboteur giddily tries to put the glove on but finds out that it simply doesn't fit him.
Cohen: Ha! Serves him right Seabass!
Alhazred slowly stirs and gets to his knees, staring at his Power Glove in the hand of Saboteur. He reaches out for it and Saboteur shrugs, tossing him the Glove. Alhazred catches it and quickly puts it on, holding it close to his chest when suddenly Saboteur delivers The Death Blow! Saboteur's knee connects with the side of Alhazred's face, sending him under the bottom rope to the outside. Gordito and Saboteur begin to celebrate in the ring, climbing the turnbuckles and playing to the fans who cheer loudly for the two veterans.
Copeland: Another great match here tonight for the 10 Year Anniversary Show, with Gordito and Saboteur showing they still know how to fight! But we have so much more to come, including our Eurasian Title match Main Event!

Copeland: What an amazing night is has been so far, we’d like to thank all the fans watching around the world and those who came here tonight. A big thank you to all the superstars who have taken part in the event and those who returned for this night of celebration.
Cohen: It’s been a great night so far, Seabass. What an opener we saw with Steamboat Ricky and Big Will, I never thought I’d get to call that match in 2017. It just goes to show you that in professional wrestling, never say never. Anything can happen around this crazy place.
Connor: They’re not the only former superstars who made the trip for the anniversary show. Look around ringside right now, it’s packed with some big names! I see Everest, he must have the night off from his official duties with the company. Looks like all the legends are having a great time.
The camera pans the front row and the fans react as several WZCW alumni are shown on screen. Big Dave shown and he offers a wave to the crowd.
Cohen: Some people can’t believe how big that man truly is.
As the camera continues to pan we see Everest as mentioned earlier, he receives a big cheer. A little further on we find Black Dragon sitting watching the show.
Connor: Black Dragon, a former Eurasian Champion, is here tonight. I bet he was excited to see Johnny Scumm earlier.
Continuing, we find Dorian Slaughter; his intimidating presence lingers over those who are next to him and the crowd is hushed until the former World Champion is no longer in the shot.
Copeland: Slaughter, for those unaware, is perhaps the greatest rookie to ever step foot inside WZCW. He had a year unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Winning the Gold Rush Tournament and then conquering Matt Tastic for the World Championship at Unscripted. A truly remarkable competitor in his rookie year.
A few seats down, Austin Reynolds sits with his family and receives a big cheer from the crowd. He stands up and gives them a round of applause before taking a seat.
Cohen: One of the few men to win the Elite Openweight Championship twice and I believe the only man currently to have held the title in both its Elite X and Openweight variations. One of the true legends of that division.
Sitting in the second row is Chris Beckford and stares at Reynolds for a moment before laughing and patting the former rival on the back.
Connor: One of the best Elite X rivarlies was that between Reynolds and Beckford. They battled twice on pay-per-view with the title on the line, Reynolds ultimately coming out the winner both times. Beckford would go on and have success in the Eurasian division where he became a solid champion.
Finally, the camera reaches the last seat in the front row and the crowd cheers wildly as former WZCW World Heavyweight Champion, Steven Kurtesy stands up.
Copeland: Kurtesy is one of the few men to say that he has defeated Tyrone Blades, doing some in the main event of Kingdom Come with the World Championship on the line during an era when Blades was as unstoppable a force as I’ve ever seen.
The camera goes one final shot, getting as many of the previously mentioned alumni in the shot as possible and the crowd gives another loud cheer for the group. The fans clearly excited to see some of the old faces back even if it is just for one night.
The camera pans to the side, as Daniel Kandi’s “Venice Beach” plays softly in the background. The fans are greeted by a familiar face. One they haven’t seen since Kingdom Come 8. It’s WZCW legend Celeste Crimson, dressed in casual clothes. The fiery blond bombshell's heterochromic eyes flash in the light, as she opens her mouth to speak.
Crimson: I can’t believe that it’s been ten years. Ten whole years since WZCW opened its doors. I was one of the first wrestlers to sign a contract here. I wrestled on the very first show. I have so many wonderful memories of this company. I wrestled and defeated Hall of Famers. I fought wars against groups that wanted to end the company’s existence. I mentored rookies. I fought for championships. I partnered with some of the best wrestlers in the world. I even fell in love. My husband and I were tag champions together. I still consider that to be my career highlight.
She sighs, as if fondly remembering the past, before changing gears.
Crimson: Many people have considered me to be a trailblazer. I suppose that is true. I was WZCW’s only female wrestler for a long time. That changed when the brass introduced the Vixen’s division. Most people know how that turned out, and many understand why it was a failure and a terrible concept. However; what a few don’t seem to grasp, is that WZCW has always been an equal opportunity employer. They do not discriminate based on race, sex, gender, or even species. Talking to you Krypto. So, it made no sense to segregate women into their own division. Trust me, we lot aren’t that special. Over time, many other female wrestlers came to join the ranks. The exotic one, Aurelia Molotov. The passionate one, Isabel Stone. The mad one, Sandy Deserts. The strong one, Ilapa. The feisty one, Amber Warren. The prodigious one, Aubrey Sloan. The energetic one, Lexi Hayes. The dedicated one, Kagura Ohzora. And the capable one, Eve Taylor. I knew these women. I fought most of them. Teamed with a few. One I still consider to be a close friend. The door I opened, they all stepped through and made names for themselves. And even though I am gone, others are still walking through that door; women that I have never met. They are all forging their own paths of success. And for that reason, I’ll always know that women of all distinctions will have a place in WZCW. Thank you, fans for supporting us.
Celeste smiles one last time, and bids farewell, as the camera pans out.

Harrys: The following contest is set for one fall and is an Open Challenge!
Harrys: Introducing first from Sydney, Australia weighing 210 pounds, representing Vis Imperium; the reigning WZCW World Heavyweight Champion… Justin Cooper!
Bright lights flash across the screen, the arena bursting with colour and slowly it begins to drain out like a hole has been punched through the bubble. Standing on the stage, amongst a sea of colour swirling underneath him, large serpents battling, fangs piercing the flesh, is Justin Cooper. Wrapped around his waist is his most prized possession, the WZCW World Heavyweight Championship. The battle beneath his feet comes to an end, a single viper slithers forward, Justin drops to his knees and raises his arms to the boos of the crowd. They hate him but their reaction means nothing to him as Justin smiles. The viper coiled around him now, Justin whispers to it and orders it forward, he follows soon after and makes his way to the ring.
Copeland: He has put together one of the most impressive runs in professional wrestling history ever since returning a few nights after Kingdom Come 7. Justin Cooper, a man who once struggled to find a place to call his own while on the undercard of WZCW events, now resides at the top of the very industry he had so much hatred towards the last time he quit.
Cohen: The three-time defending World Champion, Seabass! The man who dethroned Mikey Stormrage, the man who drove Garth Black out of this business and the man who overcame the most powerful finishing move in WZCW, the Mussel Bomb, at Gold Rush. He has almost done it all in his career. He has held all but a single championship in WZCW, he has won the Lethal Lottery and main evented Kingdom Come. Tonight, we should be celebrating his greatness!
Connor: It’s important to remember that tonight even Justin Cooper has no idea who his opponent is going to be. We have heard all week that he wasn’t exactly thrilled with being put on this show after his hard-fought match against Flex Mussel. It’ll be interesting to see what physical state the World Champion is in.
Once inside, Justin forgoes climbing the turnbuckle as he usually does and instead heads over to the referee. A few words are exchanged, the referee exits the ring and proceeds to hand Justin a microphone. The crowd offer some boos as Cooper, still dressed in his robe and with the title belt still around his waist, paces back and forth.
Cooper: Steamboat Ricky and Big Will… you people worship those two like a bunch of sheep! Those two, people who probably didn’t even know the Tag Championships were retired but yet they get the spotlight tonight. We base this entire show around so called ‘legends’ like them while I’m standing to the side like some extra!
A flicker of rage comes over Cooper’s face as he continues pacing.
Cooper: I am no extra! I am the greatest wrestler alive today and even the dead ones can’t lace my boots. I am the ace of WZCW! I beat the best and yet you idiots make excuses not to give me what I deserve. The Hall of Fame fills itself with people who haven’t won half of what I have and yet I’m still looking in from the other side.
A loud “Cooper Sucks” chant goes up from the crowd and Justin looks infuriated, nearly pulling his hair out.
Cooper: You know what? I hope you people enjoyed Ricky versus Will because you are not getting to see me compete tonight. No, you sheep don’t deserve to see me wrestle. I will not wrestle until I get the respect that I deserve!
With a solid thud, the microphone hits the canvas and Justin Cooper steps through the ropes to the outside of the ring. The referee rushes over to him and tries to talk him out of leaving but Cooper shoves him to the ground and continues walking up the ramp.
Connor: He can’t just walk out can he? These people paid good money to be here tonight. They came to celebrate ten years of this company and the World Champion is showing total disrespect to the amazing fans of WZCW. This cannot be allowed to stand. What example does this set for everyone else and the kids watching? Walk out, ditch your responsibility if you don’t get everything the way you want it? Grow up, Justin!
Cohen: You’re such a hater, CC! Justin Cooper has been treated very poorly by these fans and the Board of Directors who unfairly removed him from the Hall of Fame after Mr. Banks inducted him. It’s utterly disgusting the way the fans have treated Justin Cooper. He is the very best wrestler in the world because he holds the World Championship and none of them have appreciated all he has done for this company.
Copeland: All he has done? Vis Imperium have cheated their way of victories multiple times. They’ve damn near started a WZCW Civil War in recent months and you think we should be thanking Justin for that? Justin has gotten exactly what he deserves from the audience since he turned his back on them first.
The crowd continue to boo as Justin is about halfway up the ramp when suddenly the lights in the arena go out. It’s pitch back and nothing is seen or heard. Without warning, the titantron lights up with a graphic. The light from the big screen allows us to see that Justin has stopped dead in his tracks halfway up the entrance ramp and has a confused look on his face.
Cohen: What the hell is going on, Seabass?
Copeland: Look at the big screen, Jack!
Cohen: Who the hell is it? Who dares challenge the greatest wrestler in the world?
The lights in the arena come back on and the graphic disappears from the titantron. It now shows a shot of Justin Cooper, standing halfway up the entrance ramp, his hand clenched into a fist. He pauses for a moment, nothing happens, and then proceeds to continue walking up the ramp. He yells back at some fans who taunt him until...

A montage of various King for a Day matches begins to play. Within the shots of the carnage we see a competitor from this year’s match sitting down, alone, explaining what this match means to them.
“What does winning King for a Day mean to you?”
Mark Keaton: Dominance for Vis Imperium! What other targets could there possibly be? The one and only top prize in the company is obviously the Heavyweight Championship. But if my pal Cooper is still holding that prize… then probably the Eurasian Championship. I've had a thirst to get that puppy in Vis Imperium so our stable can be recognized as having every title in the company. Then, obviously I'd change it to The Great Canadian Championship.
A shot of Noah Ryder winning KFAD is shown.
Lynx: Winning the King For A Day match is a huge opportunity. The winner can choose from any of the major Championships. I could try to end the reign of Titus Avison if he gets past Tyrone Blades. I could become the most dominant Mayhem Champion since Vega. I could win the Elite Openweight Championship. I could even go after the biggest prize of them all. That's not one but FOUR different variables on the WZCW timeline that I could watch over simultaneously. As the King For A Day winner, I would have the single most useful item for a wrestler who is tasked with protecting the time space continuum. If even one of those championship belts were to fall off of its correct place on the timeline, it would be up to me to cash in on that title's champion and set us back on the timeline that prevents the apocalyptic disaster that would otherwise kill us all.
An image of Constantine, covered in blood, emerging from the chamber as King for a Day appears on the screen. Fans watch in horror at the price he paid for winning the contest.
Richard Goldman: I suppose you want our thoughts and concerns about the upcoming match. Allow me to appease your wants at this moment then. Now I'm sure that when looking over the list of competitors, most will gravitate towards the likes of Flex or Eve Taylor, and almost nobody expects Logan to have much of a shot. Logan will be the biggest person in the match, having upwards of 50lbs weight advantage over everyone. Obviously, in WZCW size isn't everything, but this isn't a regular match, no. No, it is in the chamber, a harsh destructive environment that makes my client feel comfortable. While this may be his first chamber match, Logan was in similar situations growing up in Boston, and a lot of those encounters had much more than championship opportunities on the line.
A shot of Corey Payne fending off several competitors on his way to becoming King for a Day is shown.
King Mussel: You see I’ve been given a greater purpose than each and everyone of them whether they realize or not. You are all my loyal subjects and with your help we will make the world greater, but first, we need to MAKE THIS COUNTRY HEALTHY AGAIN!!!
Several shots of various superstars having their faces slammed against the pods of the chamber.
Kagura: All this time I have been waiting for an opportunity like this one. All I must do is win this one match. Win the King for a Day crown, and I’ll begin my ascent to the top. Victory may label me by my gender or my race, but none of that matters. For a long time, I have been drowning. I have struggled in vain against the watery grave fate has prepared for my career. But I will not lose this time. This time I will break these chains. I will kick to the surface and prove that I am destined to be the next world champion.
The fans cheer wildly as the image of the chamber lowering is shown.
Batti: I don't need a briefcase to prove it, but if it just so happens I win and somehow I get it, things are going to get interesting. VERY interesting. I already know what I'd do, and believe me, it's never been done before. I'm here to bring the excitement, obviously. Hell I may even wanna cash in nude. Can you imagine Justin Cooper's face? Or Constantine's?
The video comes to an end with the sound of the large steel door of the chamber closing with a thud.

The lights in the arena begin to fade as the Elimination Chamber is slowly lowered from above the ring. Thousands of fans watch in awe, the structure is massive, brutal to its core and will host six superstars who will never be the save after entering it.
Harrys: Ladies and gentlemen, it is now time for the King for a Day match. The men who drew numbers 1 and 2 will begin the match, and every 5 minutes a new competitor will be released from their pod and will enter the match. Participants can be eliminated by pinfall or submission. The last competitor remaining will become the King for a Day, and earn a contract for a championship match against any champion of their choosing within the next twelve months.
Harrys: Introducing first from Paris, France, weighing 220 pounds, “The Commander and Chief” King Mussél!
King Mussel enters the arena with his FlexAmerican World Title and raises it high in the air as he throws fruit and protein shakes at the fans while Charles follows behind him waving the FlexAmerican flag. Flex’s antics are cut short as he eyes the chamber, he turns and orders Charles away before climbing the steps into the structure.
Connor: The luck of the draw favours the man who has crowned himself King recently. Of course, King Mussel suffered the biggest defeat of his career at Gold Rush when he failed to win the World Championship. Some say he still hasn’t recovered mentally from that loss.
Cohen: Our country needs good leaders, CC. That’s what Flex… I mean, King Mussel! That’s what King Mussel is, honestly. He is the leader this great company needs and while I couldn’t support his claim to the World Championship, I very much support his claim to being King for a Day! He’s the only person in this match I’d be happy to see with such an honour.
Mussel slowly makes his way over to the pod in the top right-hand corner of the ring. The crowd boo loudly as Mussel steps inside the pod and can be heard shouting “Make America Healthy Again!”
Harrys: From Neo Japan weighin in at 115 pounds.... Batti!
Normally, beach balls would fall from the ceiling but not now. With the chamber looming over the arena, Batti isn’t her usual bubbly self. It’s a slow and hesitant walk as Batti emerges at the top of the ramp. Unlike the previous entrant, Batti receives a warm welcome but it does little to calm her nerves.
Cohen: Look at her, Seabass! This freak doesn’t deserve to be in this position. She has lost twice to Callie Clark and yet Callie is on the outside looking in at this chance while Batti gets to compete to become the first ever Queen for a Day. How does that work?
Copeland: Batti won a triple threat earlier tonight which happened to involve Callie Clark, Jack. She deserves this as much as any competitor in this contest. She has a real chance to make history by becoming the first woman to ever hold King for a Day and yes, it would therefore be known as Queen for a Day.
Connor: She’s a former Elite Openweight Champion, don’t count her out just because she looks a little nervous. I’d like to see you get in there, Jack!
As Batti enters the chamber she locks eyes with King Mussel. The two have a brief exchange of words before Batti is locked into the bottom right hand pod. The clinking of chains and the loud thud of the bullet proof glass panel closing causes Batti to look very uneasy, doubts running through her mind as the crowd offers support.
Harrys: And from Boston, MA, weighing 275lbs pounds, "The Son of Boston" Logan McAllister!
As the bells hit the lights go dark, before green lights begin pulsating to the beat of the song, the letters L-O-G-A-N slowly appear on the video screen. At roughly 30 seconds in, we see Richard Goldman strut out with a big smile on his face as he stops at the ramp and turns towards the now emerging Logan McAllister. Logan walks out, going to the left on the stage and pointing out to his fans, doing the same thing on the right side before coming back and walking with a purpose down the ramp.
Copeland: From the brink of his professional release to competing in King for a Day. The story of Logan McAllister is one of great success, a fall from grace and now the redemption. The climb back to the top of the mountain. This man was the Elite Openweight Champion for a few hours back at Lethal Lottery until the last man to hold King for a Day cashed in on him. That marked the downfall of this young career but he has worked through that, Logan has worked hard and now we will see if it has all paid off.
Connor: It’s an amazing story about the value of hard working. He had some success in WZCW and let it get to his head. He stopped trying, that drive which got him to that point was no longer there but Logan has pushed all that to the side and now has a chance for greatness tonight.
Goldman shakes the hand of his client and heads to the backstage arena while Logan steps into the chamber. He looks around at the structure, bouncing on his feet and climbs onto the turnbuckle, pumping up the crowd as they cheer. A few moments later, Logan walks to the lower left-hand pod and is locked within by the outside referees.
Cohen: Who will be the final competitor to take their spot inside the only remaining pod?
Harrys: Now residing in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing 225 pounds, representing Vis Imperium; Remarkable Mark Keaton!
Huge boos from the crowd all at once. Mark Keaton makes his way out to the ramp with a big sneer on his face. He holds his golden, end of the year awards up for the fans to see then bangs his head as he heads to the ring. He kisses both trophies and leaves them at ringside. His eyes dart up and down as he scans the chamber, Keaton having second thoughts before walking up the steps to the chamber.
Connor: Well, how convenient that the only member of Vis Imperium in this match just so happens to receive a spot in one of the pods.
Cohen: What are you getting at, CC? These spots were totally random! Mr. Banks conducted the draw himself to make sure it was fair.
Copeland: Keaton is coming off the biggest win of his career against Matt Tastic at Gold Rush. A win here would secure King for a Day into the hands of Vis Imperium and remove a massive threat from their leader; Justin Cooper.
Keaton immediately marches over to King Mussel’s pod, climbs the turnbuckle in front of it, and begins screaming at the fittest man on the planet. Back and forth, Mussel and Keaton exchange heated words and it ends with Keaton spitting on the pod and flipping Mussel the bird!
Copeland: Obviously, no love lost between Mussel and Keaton. Mussel has made enemies of Vis Imperium during his hunt for the World Championship against Justin Cooper. I’d love to see those two collide at some point.
Milking it for all he can, Keaton takes forever before getting put into the pod. Once inside, the sneer on his face is long gone, Keaton closes his eyes and sits down. As if he knows that he will not be entering the match early.
Harrys: From Times Unknown, weighing 204 pounds, Lynx!
Lynx walks out onto the entrance ramp looking down at the ground for a few seconds as a countdown clock ticks down 5.... 4.... 3.... 2.... 1.... Then he looks into the audience and pyro goes off as the fans cheer. Blue, purple, and green lights flash throughout the arena. He enthusiastically asks a fan when he passes them down the entrance ramp if they know what time it is.
Cohen: They are calling Lynx the dark horse of this match. He came so close to competing in the final of the Gold Rush Tournament and a victory at the pay-per-view itself has earned him a spot here tonight.
Connor: It’s his first time entering the Elimination Chamber and he will begin the match as one of the first two competitors. If he wants to be King for a Day he’ll have to go the long way around.
With all the pods full, Lynx takes a moment to walk over to each competitor and check them out. Mussel offers a taunt back, Batti is still scared to death of the structure, McAllister says that he is winning this match and Keaton appears to be sleeping inside his pod. After visiting each pod, Lynx steps into the middle of the ring and waits for the final competitor to enter the chamber.
Harrys: And the final competitor, from Ise, Mie, Japan weighing 160 pounds, Kagura!
Kagura makes her way down the aisle as petals fall around the entrance ramp. A look of intensity is on her face as Kagura climbs the steps and enters the chamber without hesitation.
Copeland: A former Elite Openweight Champion, Kagura has competed in King for a Day once before. It was at Kingdom Come 7, she was the runner-up in that match and tonight she is looking to do one better.
Cohen: Another with the chance to become the first woman to win King for a Day.
The final competitor is inside the chamber, a single referee joins them and the crowd are waiting with anticipation. Kagura and Lynx begin to circle each other as the referees on the outside double check the locks on the pods. It’s all good, everything is set and with that said – the bell sounds for the beginning of King for a Day!
The referee moves out of the way, needing only to be present for pinfalls or submissions and nothing else. Kagura and Lynx take a moment to soak in the roar of the crowd, the chamber’s looming presence before they collide. Lynx grab Kagura but the former Elite Openweight Champion ducks and fires off a quick kick to the stomach. Following up, Kagura connects with a shuffle kick and Lynx stumbles back. Rushing forward with a head of steam, Kagura goes for a clothesline but Lynx bends down and launches his opponent high into the air and Kagura goes flying over the top rope! Luckily for Kagura she is able to land on her feet. The sound of Kagura landing on the steel floor surrounding the ring echoes throughout the arena. Lynx gets hit with a palm strike as he attempts to bring Kagura back into the ring and Kagura follows it up by ascending the turnbuckle and delivering a flying knee to the head of Lynx. No cover, instead Kagura waits for Lynx to stand and proceeds to deliver a combination of palm strikes and shot to the back of the neck which backs Lynx into the corner. The crowd are counting as Kagura is unloading like a machine gun, Lynx tries to cover up but Kagura is just too damn fast! Backing up now does Kagura, in the opposite corner, and she runs at full speed… but Lynx lifts himself up and kicks Kagura in the face. It’s a sudden stop as Kagura is rocked, Lynx grabs her and connects with the swinging neckbreaker. Rubbing his jaw from the attack, Lynx uses the ropes to pull himself up and drives his boot into the body of the downed opponent. Quickly, Lynx dives down and applies a headlock in the middle of the ring.
Copeland: As you expect in these types of matches the early participants like to keep it inside the ring without bringing in the chamber itself.
Cohen: That’ll change once some of these bodies get in there, Seabass!
The headlock is in tight as Lynx squeezes however Kagura begins to struggle to her feet. The hold is still locked on as Kagura gets to her feet, she shoves Lynx away sending him into the ropes but before Kagura can gather her thoughts – Lynx rebounds and nails a forearm smash! Down goes Kagura with a loud thud! Lynx hooks the leg for the first cover of this match. 1… 2… Kick Out! Back to his feet, Lynx lifts Kagura up by the hair and whips her into the corner. Running towards the corner Lynx goes for a splash but Kagura moves out of the way – Lynx catches himself on the turnbuckle, bounces up onto the top rope and executes a moonsault backwards onto Kagura! An incredible site as Lynx counters the counter and both competitors are down on the mat. The first to move is Lynx, he crawls towards the ropes and watches as Kagura does the same. Lynx approaches Kagura, kneeing her in the stomach before lifting the former champion up into the air and connecting with the Falcon Arrow! The crowd pops big as Lynx grabs a leg for the pin attempt. 1… 2… Kick Out! This early portion of the match has turned on its as Lynx stands in the centre of the ring, looking down at Kagura, the cheering crowd enjoying every moment so far of this highly anticipated contest. Lynx walks over to Kagura, twisting her body as he applies the surfboard stretch, no rope breaks to save the day, the submission is locked in and the referee slides into position. The crowd are standing as Lynx pulls with all his might, Kagura shakes her head, screaming in defiance, refusing to quit. It’s all on the line, Kagura could be the first competitor eliminated from this match and Lynx is no losing grip of this hold. The lights in the arena dim, the submission still locked in, as a counter appears and a single light flashes over each pod.
Connor: The countdown has begun!
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… WAHHHHH!
The spotlight arrives at the pod of Logan McAllister, it opens, and in he comes with a fury.
Copeland: Logan McAllister has been selected to enter the chamber third, the first time doing so in his career and it looks like he is going right into the fight.
Cohen: It’d be started for him to sit back but that’s not the style of McAllister. He’s a fight first type of guy and he’s not going to sit back and wait.
Storming into the ring, McAllister tackles both Kagura and Lynx which breaks up the submission attempt. He mounts Lynx and begins hammering away with fists. Meanwhile, Kagura rolls to the outside of the ring and finds herself resting on the steel part of this structure. Back inside the ring, Logan yanks Lynx to his feet, slings him into the ropes and connects with a shoulder block. A sudden elbow is dropped down onto Lynx, Logan pops back up to his feet and drops another. The fresh man with the advantage as he is back up on his feet again, lifting Lynx up and hitting a hard T-Bone suplex! The crowd cheers loudly as Logan slaps his chest and points towards the crowd. He scans the chamber, Kagura still on the outside of the ring, with Lynx in the corner. Logan approaches Lynx, hammering away with more punches but some are blocked as Lynx fights his way out of the corner. It’s a wild scene as both men fire off punches until Lynx gets a forearm underneath the chin of McAllister, slings him into the ropes and executes a beautiful dropkick. Before Lynx can do anything more, Kagura slingshots herself from the outside into the ring via the ropes and hits a flying clothesline! Rolling forward to keep her momentum, Kagura comes charging back and hits a dropkick to Lynx which sends him into the turnbuckle. McAllister tries to cut Kagura off but she blocks his Exploder Suplex attempt with elbows and slings him into the opposite corner of Lynx.
Cohen: It’s getting hard to keep up with now.
Copeland: We’ve still got four people to enter the chamber, Jack! This is only the beginning.
Kagura stands in the middle of the ring, both her opponents in opposite corners, the crowd cheering as she goes from corner to corner, back and forth, delivering flying knee strikes. Each time the knee hitting harder; after three times Kagura is caught by McAllister who performs a release German Suplex from inside the ring to the outside onto the steel grate! The look on Kagura’s face says it all, the steel tearing at her skin as Logan slips underneath the top rope and finds himself on the outside. McAllister hits a few punches before pulling Kagura up, pressing her against the steel pod from which he emerged and smashes her head first against it! The crowd count along as McAllister does it five times, pulls Kagura in close and hits a Fallaway Slam onto the steel! Pinfalls do not count on the steel, so Logan attempts to bring Kagura into the ring but is stopped by Lynx who leaps from the turnbuckle onto Logan with a cross-body! All three competitors in this match are down, all on the outside of the ring, and all tasting the sting of the steel structure. Lynx is the first to his feet, he grabs McAllister and shoves him into the chain-link of the chamber, Logan’s face being torn to pieces against the thick chain. Lynx lets go, McAllister stumbles back into the ropes and Lynx clotheslines him back into the ring. Following up, Lynx executes a slingshot senton from the outside into the ring and onto McAllister for a cover. 1… 2… Kick Out! Just as Logan kicks out, the lights dim and the spotlight returns.
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… WAHHHHH!
The spotlight stops on King Mussel’s pod and the fittest man on earth doesn’t wait for the pod to open, instead he kicks the glass – shattering it into a million pieces!
Copeland: Did he just break bullet-proof glass with his foot? The ungodly power of King Mussel is on display.
Cohen: Don’t ever skip leg day, Seabass!
Stepping into the chamber with a shocking display, Mussel is met by Lynx who hits a knife-edge chop. Mussel grabs Lynx by the throat and shoves him across the ring, the crowd in awe as Mussel hits a big boot on a returning Lynx. Kagura remains on the outside, Logan however isn’t as lucky as he stands up and is grabbed by Mussel. Using his unmatched power, Mussel executes a gutwrench overhead throw on Logan – throwing him across the ring with ease. Everybody is just waiting as King Mussel runs wild, he grabs Lynx again – belly to belly suplex! He keeps the hands locked, lifting Lynx up and hits another! For a third time, Mussel keeps his hands locked and pulls Lynx up to a vertical base… but Lynx headbutts his way out of it. Mussel stumbles, Lynx hits a dropkick but Mussel will not fall! A look of frustration appears on Lynx’s face, he hits another dropkick but still Mussel refuses. With the audience chanting his name, Lynx loads up a shot and executes a forearm smash and drops King Mussel to his knees – it’s not enough though as Lynx grabs Mussel by the head and arm – he lifts him up – Falcon Arrow! In the centre of the ring, Lynx hit the Falcon Arrow, a cover follows. 1… 2… Kick Out! Lynx shakes his head, one of the first to enter the match, and we are still without an elimination. The chamber sees people all across it; Kagura and Logan colliding on the outside of the ring, back and forth they fight, but in the middle of the ring, where pinfalls count, it’s Mussel and Lynx.
Copeland: We’ve got two different collisions going on at the minute and next competitor surely has to be on their way soon.
Connor: Look at Mark Keaton, he is still sitting down in his pod like he knows for sure that his time isn’t next. Don’t tell me that his alliance with Mr. Banks means nothing.
Lynx delivers a knee drop to Mussel, the fittest man on earth rolling away holding his head afterwards and he finds himself near the ropes. Trying to put away the freshest man, Lynx grabs Mussel but is hit with a low blow! Nothing the referee can do as Mussel lifts Lynx up and hits a Fireman’s Carry Gut Buster! No cover as Flex Mussel shakes his head, Kagura tries to enter the ring but Mussel hits a jumping knee knocking Kagura down on the outside. Logan is down on the steel, a result of his encounter with Kagura as he came off second best, meanwhile Mussel is stalking Lynx. The two men in the centre of the ring, Mussel mean mugging Lynx, his eyes locked on one of the two men who started this match. As Lynx stands, Mussel goes behind him… slowly Lynx turns and Mussel goes for Flexicution however Lynx ducks! Kick to the Future – a superkick – connects out of nowhere! Lynx kicks Mussel in the stomach, he goes for the Dimensional Vortex (Stunner) but Mussel shoves him away, Lynx returns fire with another superkick but this time King Mussel catches it and he nails the Flexicution! The hard discus clothesline connects, no cover from Mussel as he pulls Lynx up into a powerbomb position – the countdown begins – Mussel Bomb! Mussel hooks the leg; his once banned move makes its return. 1… 2… 3!
Click for Spoiler:
Copeland: Our first elimination has occurred and we are down to five competitors left in this contest.
Cohen: We were down to three in the ring but it’s going to become four again shortly.
Connor: Notice that Keaton isn’t even watching the match. He knows that his number isn’t being called. He’s entering last! Vis Imperium has rigged this so that Keaton will be the last man to enter!
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… WAHHHHH!
The spotlight stops at Batti’s pod and the crowd offer her a warm reception. Her pod opens and Batti comes out with her fists raised. She scans the chamber, Kagura is down, Logan is down, and the only person ready and waiting for her is King Mussel. He beckons her, Batti enters the ring and is blindsided by Mussel attacking her while she is halfway in. Mussel begins laying in the boots to Batti, he grabs her by the hair and throws her violently into the corner. It’s a rough start for Batti as she is lifted up and held in a vertical suplex position. King Mussel is just showing off now as he marches around the ring holding Batti up in the air… perhaps a little too long as Kagura enters the ring and punches Mussel in the stomach. To the floor goes Batti, hitting the deck hard as Kagura begins to hammer away at King Mussel. Big forearms by Kagura, she attempts to sling Mussel into the ropes but he overpowers her and pulls Kagura towards him and connects with a belly to belly suplex. Mussel goes for a cover. 1… 2… Kick Out!
It is all King Mussel as he stands in the middle of the ring with his arms in the air. The crowd boos loudly, he sneers before setting his attention on Logan McAllister. Mussel steps out onto the steel grate, grabs Logan by the throat and pushes him against the chain. He appears to be laughing as he goes for a vertical suplex on the steel but Logan counters – lifts Mussel up and nails a brainbuster!
Copeland: Holy you know what! Brainbuster! McAllister hit a freaking brainbuster on the steel floor of the chamber.
The back of Logan’s head hit the steel so he is stunned a little but King Mussel appears to be knocked out cold. If only Logan could get Mussel into the ring than he would surely be able to secure a pinfall victory over him. It’s not to be though, our attention turns to Kagura as she and Batti are going at it inside the ring. Batti evades a neckbreaker, hitting a wind-up punch and then a hard axe kick which knocks Kagura down. Batti goes for the cover. 1… 2… Kick Out! The nerves seem to be gone as the crowd chants her name, Batti is up and hits a forearm to Kagura – whips her into the corner and executes a turnbuckle foot choke. After a few seconds, Kagura drops down to the lower half of the turnbuckle, Batti backs up, waves her hands in the air, yells loudly, and charges forward – Bronco Buster! Batti is on fire right now, she turns around and Logan McAllister is there and he hits a German Suplex! Another… a third… a fourth… B.S.P with the fifth! He collapses onto her for a cover. 1… 2… Kick Out! That kick out is the final thing we see before the lights dim, the spotlight appears and Mark Keaton is finally about to enter this match.
Cohen: He has been waiting this entire match for this chance.
Copeland: Oh please, Keaton obviously knew he’d be entering last.
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… WAHHHHH!
The final man to enter the match is indeed Mark Keaton and he rushes into the ring, grabbing Logan McAllister and tossing him to the outside. Batti is weary, Keaton lifts her up and whips her into the ropes – on the rebound he hits a scoop body slam. Keaton oozes confidence even inside the chamber, everyone has been through a tough match while Keaton has sat back in his pod. He approaches Kagura who is getting to her feet in the corner, Keaton applies a sleeper hold and drags her to the floor. The referee moves into position and monitors the submission hold. On the outside, King Mussel has regained part of himself after the brainbuster and finds himself once again in battle with Logan McAllister. They slug it out on the corner, Logan goes for a T-Bone but Mussel rakes the eyes. Logan stumbles towards a pod, he feels Flex grab his legs and all of a sudden Mussel executes the Spin & Win by bouncing Logan back and forth between the glass pod and the steel chain of the chamber wall! Back and forth King Mussel slams McAllister repeatedly until he drops him, grabs his head and with a full head of steam – smashes McAllister face first throw the bullet-proof glass of a pod! Blood begins to spurt from Logan’s head as Mussel stumbles away from the wreckage he has caused.
Cohen: We’ve got blood. Mussel just smashed Logan face first through one of those pods!
Inside the ring, Keaton is trading shots between both Kagura and Batti. The sleeper hold having failed him, Keaton is involved in a three-way fight. All three take and give a punch in the middle of the ring. Keaton rakes the eyes of Kagura, blinding her and she tries to hit Keaton but nails Batti. They begin to trade shots solely between the two of them until Keaton shoves Kagura in the back and she knocks Batti to the outside. Keaton rolls up Kagura for a cover. 1… 2… Kick Out! Almost there, Keaton stands and as he goes to grab Kagura he spots King Mussel approaching him. They exchange some words before Keaton grabs Kagura and throws her to the outside away from anybody else. With a smug look on his face, Keaton demands that Mussel get in here. The King accepts, stepping into the ring but Keaton tries a cheap shot only for Mussel to block and hit a hard elbow. Mussel backs Keaton up, he goes for an inverted backbreaker but Keaton slips free and hits his own classic backbreaker! The crowd cheers, not for Keaton but for Batti who comes flying into the ring with a diving spear – GLOMP! – but Keaton catches her into a DDT!
Copeland: An amazing counter by Keaton!
Cohen: He caught her in mid-air!
Quickly, Keaton hooks the leg for the cover. 1… 2… Kick Out! A stunned look appears on the face of Keaton as he punches the canvas. He gets in the face of the referee and demands it was a three count. As he is arguing with the referee, Kagura slips back into the ring and rolls Keaton up. 1… 2… 3!
Click for Spoiler:
The crowd is stunned, yet overjoyed, as Mark Keaton pops up to his feet but it’s too late. He is furious and grabs the official by the throat, screaming that the count was bullshit. Kagura is right there and she tries to help the innocent referee but gets raked in the eyes by Keaton. The Remarkable One has lost it as he storms out of the chamber and shoves a bunch of referees who try to get him to leave ringside. He is not having it however and as the crowd boo, Keaton rushes over to the announce desk and grabs a steel chair. It’s chaos as people try to stop him but Keaton doesn’t care, he enters the chamber again, already eliminated and finds Kagura! The crowd are horrified as Keaton smacks her in the head with the chair, immediately drawing blood, and then delivers five more chair shots to various parts of her body. The referees flood the chamber but are unable to stop Keaton as he curses up and down the ring, swinging the chair wildly and smacking Batti in the back.
Connor: Get him out of the damn ring! This idiot is going to run King for a Day because he got eliminated early. He had all the advantages and still couldn’t win it.
Copeland: Kagura is a bloody mess because of Keaton. He may have ended her night and because of what? She got the best of him and he is throwing a fit!
Still with the steel chair in his hand, Keaton turns his attention to Logan McAllister who has just gotten to his feet. McAllister has no idea what is waiting for him as Keaton cracks the chair off the skull of McAllister. It’s sickening as Keaton marches back into the middle of the ring, the only person left is King Mussel. Keaton would have to charge him head on and that’s not something he wants to do, even with a chair, so Keaton finally exits the chamber and walks up the entrance ramp.
The chamber looks like a horror movie as both Logan and Kagura are covered in their own blood. King Mussel and Batti look exhausted but have no blood on their face. We are down to the final for and the person in the best situation after the Keaton assault is King Mussel. He scurries over to Kagura, rolling her over and getting an arm over her body. 1… 2… Kick Out! Everyone in the entire arena is stunned including King Mussel. Again, King Mussel goes for a cover but this time he hooks the leg. 1… 2… Kick Out! A second kick out and this time Mussel mounts Kagura and begins punching her in the face. The face of Kagura already a crimson mask but know Mussel is just making it worse as he hammers away with some of the stiffest shots you’ve ever seen. The horror of the chamber truly coming through now.
Mussel steps off, wiping Kagura’s blood from his chest and picking her up onto his shoulder. Marching around the ring with his opponent at his mercy, King Mussel smirks until Batti surprises him with GLOMP! From the top rope. She spears King Mussel in half, the crowd goes wild, Kagura ends up on the steel grate out of the ring. Batti is still shaken from the chair shot by Keaton but she leans up against the ropes and readies herself. Mussel gets halfway back to a vertical base before Batti tries the Kawaii Kick! King Mussel counters – he turns into it and lifts Batti up – Mussel Bomb! King Mussel goes for the cover. 1… 2… McAllisault! Out of nowhere, McAllister comes flying off the top rope with a moonsault right onto King Mussel. McAllister gets to his feet, both Batti and King Mussel are down before him and he has a choice. His face covered in blood; Logan grabs King Mussel lifting him up and nails the Boston Massacre! A cover by Logan! 1… 2… 3!
Click for Spoiler:
Copeland: We are down to the final three. This match has drawn blood from multiple competitors and two of them are still in this match.
Cohen: I’ve got to wonder who is in the best position right now?
Perhaps it is Logan McAllister as he staggers to a vertical base and must lean against the ropes. He has lost a lot of blood in this match. He has been put through a pod but somehow Logan is still in this match. He has a one in three chance at being King for a Day and both competitors are down. Kagura is on the outside, her face a mess as she crawls towards the chain-link so she can use it to stand up. Logan begins to move and heads for the person closest to him; Batti. Grabbing her by the arm, Logan pulls Batti close and hits a short arm clothesline. The crowd are split at the minute, some chanting for Logan and others for Batti. Logan picks Batti up, quickly sending her into the corner. As best he can, McAllister runs and leaps through the air with Boston Strong (Stinger Splash) and it connects. Batti stumbles forward, Logan lifts her up for End of Days but Batti wriggles free and lands on the top turnbuckle. Logan turns around and is kicked in the face, he stumbles back and bends down a bit – Kawaii Kick off the top rope!
Connor: OH MY GOD!
Copeland: Batti leapt from the top rope and nailed the Kawaii Kick. I’ve never seen that before in my life.
It connects perfectly and Batti crawls ever so slowly into the cover. The bloody body of Logan McAllister is not moving after that crazy move. Batti gets an arm over Logan and the referee slides into position. 1… 2… 3! She did it, Batti has eliminated Logan McAllister and we are down to the final two and with that we are guaranteed to have, for the first time ever, Queen for a Day!
Click for Spoiler:
The final two is set; for the first time ever we will have a Queen for a Day. On one side, it is Batti, she is down inside the ring. On the other, Kagura, the woman who started this match, and has a face which is wearing a crimson mask. Both are barely able to stand at this point, the chamber taking its pound of flesh from both but one will have to dig down into that place where champions are made. Batti begins to fight to her feet, her body quitting on her throughout the process, but the crowd cheer her on and soon enough Batti is standing proudly in the middle of the ring. Her fists clenched, she slowly turns left and staring back at her is Kagura, covered in blood and with one arm through the steel chain-link of the chamber wall. Ever so slowly, Kagura inches forward towards the ring ropes. She nearly falls but makes it, barely, and Kagura enters the ring.
Copeland: Both women are standing in the ring now. It’s Batti versus Kagura, Queen for a Day on the line. For the first time ever a woman is going to win the chamber.
Connor: This is history before our very eyes.
In the middle of the ring, Batti and Kagura go forehead to forehead and the crowd goes absolutely nuts. Punches begin to be throw wildly and both look like they could fall at any moment. Batti is the quicker of the two and ducks a shot, she steps back and hits a baseball slide dropkick which drops Kagura to her knees. Batti fires off a wind-up punch and then hits a dabbing elbow drop, she goes for the cover and the win. 1… 2… Kick Out! Still, Kagura will not give up. Batti tries to get up by pushing off Kagura but Kagura counters, grabbing the arm and applying a key lock armbar from her back! Blood is covering her face, Kagura has paid a price greater than that of any other competitor but does that mean she will win the greatest prize? Kagura is struggling, she will break the arm if she must to win this chamber match. It’s all on the line, Batti is risking a broken arm to stay alive in this contest.
Cohen: Kagura will snap that damn arm, Seabass!
The entire arena is standing as Kagura keeps twist as much as she can. Batti will not tap, she begins to lean forward and gets Kagura’s shoulders onto the mat. 1… 2… Kagura breaks the hold and gets the shoulder off the mat just in time. It was almost a three count for Batti but Kagura got the shoulder up and was forced to release the submission. Batti backs up, holding her arm as Kagura pushes herself off the canvas, droplets of blood covering it as she looks down. Kagura goes for the two fist heart punch however Batti catches the strike, kicks Kagura in the stomach – Kawaii Kick! No, Kagura ducks out of the way – shuffle kick – Batti catches it and hits the axe kick! Down goes Kagura as Batti stumbles back into the turnbuckle. She looks over the arena, the fans standing before climbing the top rope and perching herself on the turnbuckle. Slowly, Kagura stands and begins to turn, Batti prepares for GLOMP! when suddenly Kagura spits red mist into the eyes of Batti! Batti loses her balance, she is blinded and cannot see, falling to the canvas… Kagura grabs Batti as she stumbles to her feet, judo throw! Kagura wraps her legs around Batti’s body and applies a sleeper hold. The referee is in position as they struggle, the choke restricting her breathing, the body scissors crushing her ribs, the red mist burning her eyes – it’s too much as Batti taps out.
Click for Spoiler:
The crowd are exhausted after the violence they have seen in this match. Kagura cannot get to her feet, she can barely lift her head off the canvas as the referee checks on her. Batti rolls across the ring and towards the exit, still blinded by the red mist and absolutely battered. Replays are shown of all the violent acts throughout this match until Kagura is helped to her feet by the referee, at which point she is handed the King for a Day briefcase to a huge applause. She collapses to her knees and holds the briefcase close, Kagura with her ticket to any title at any time she decides.
Copeland: Perhaps one of the great performances in a hardcore match we have ever seen. Kagura started this match alongside Lynx, she went through all six competitors in this match. She eliminated two people on her way to becoming the first ever woman to win King for a Day. It’s a history making moment tonight.
Connor: Kagura has earned the opportunity to challenge for any title she wants and at any time. She could cash in at Unscripted, on Meltdown, Ascension, Lethal Lottery or even the main event of Kingdom Come. Congratulations to Kagura for an outstanding performance.
Cohen: It was that red mist at the end of the match. Kagura had it waiting for the right moment. Batti climbed to the top rope, she was looking for one of her favourite moves and that distance allowed Kagura to ready the mist and use it when Batti most needed her sight.
Kagura staggers out of the ring and begins making her way up the ramp with the briefcase in hand. As she gets halfway up the ramp, Batti is sitting with her head in her hands. Batti looks up, struggles to her feet and looks right into the eyes of Kagura. The winner, bloody and exhausted, simply holds the briefcase high in the air and walks away.

The chamber has been lifted, the chaos brushed away and standing inside the ring is the voice of WZCW; Sebastian Copeland. The crowd gives him a big cheer as Copeland stands confidently with a microphone.
Copeland: Well, ladies and gentlemen, what a night it has been here so far. WZCW set out tonight to showcase some of the biggest names and events from the past decade that we have been in existence. I would say that we have did that remarkably well thus far. But I want to take your attentions away from the ring for a moment and to an interview that I managed to get with someone who has been with company for a long time but is absent tonight. A man whose time with with us growing shorter with every day that passes. That man is, of course, John Constantine.
Copeland: What a career that man has had. He has done it all, ladies and gentlemen. I'm sure you've heard of the things he has done but how about we take a moment to revisit the long road up to this point? If you would turn your attention once again to the big screen.
Harrys: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the tenth inductee into the WZCW Hall of Fame - CONSTANTINE!
The cheering gets even louder as Constantine's image appears on screen alongside the WZCW Hall of Fame logo. He will be forever enshrined alongside the very best in the best.
Copeland: This crowd showing their love and support for one of the best. It is official, Constantine has officially be added to the WZCW Hall of Fame. An honour which is well deserved. He has done nearly everything you can do in this industry.
Connor: We all saw that highlights package. So many great moments and from what I'm being told, Constantine had no clue about this announcement. He has to be in shock right now, he's in the WZCW Hall of Fame. We've had hundreds of superstars throughout the years and he has been judged as one of the best ten!
Cohen: I can't say I'm overly thrilled with the way Constantine has acted lately but overall he has been a fantastic competitor in WZCW. He deserves this for all the hard work he put in inside and outside the ring. This means that when Constantine wrestles Justin Cooper for the World Championship at Unscripted, he will do so as a WZCW Hall of Famer. This final stretch of his career was going to be amazing anyway but now he gets to do so as a Hall of Famer.
