*Pryos go off*
Copeland: Meltdown hails from Cameron, North Carolina this week, as we edge closer to Kingdom Come. This will be the last US City that Meltdown will be in before Kingdom Come as we'll be going around Europe before stopping in London for our grand Pay Per View!
Cohen: But despite the fact we have to put up with those awful toilets in Europe, not to mention all the different cable adapters, we made sure Meltdown goes with a bang! We got some exciting matches that will complete your week tonight!
Copeland: Too right there Jack! We got the Second Round of the EurAsian Champion's Best of Three where Showtime Cougar may be announced as Champion or, we have another week ahead to decide the final outcome. We also got the third week of the EurAsian League, halfway home now as Lars or Showtime's opponent will be filtered out even further.
Cohen: But you can't get bigger than the Champions vs. Champions match we have, Everest and Steamboat Ricky, looking to set the example to the WZCW locker room in a how match should be done!
Copeland: We got all that, and more tonight. But let's kick off with some EurAsian League action!
Harrys: The following contest is an EurAsian League Match, scheduled for one fall!
The bass of Roll Deep's 'When I'm Ere' can be heard around the arena as 'The English Enigma' Scott Hammond appears from behind the curtain. He stands at the top of the rampway for a moment and gives out a disapproving stare to the crowd. Slowly santering to the ring, he keeps his eyes fixated on the ring.
Harrys: Introducing first, from London, England, weighing in at 275 pounds, he is The English Engima, Scott Hammond!
Copeland: Hammond has had a big chip on his shoulder in recent weeks. Do you think he will be able to put that all aside and focus on his opponent here tonight?
Cohen: He has to Seabass. In the name of Queen and all of Europe, he has to. And I think tonight we will do just that.
Copeland: Well if he doesn’t, he can pretty much kiss away his chances of facing the EurAsian champion at Kingdom Come
“Enya Stomp” cuts in with Chris Beckford appearing at the top of the stage, he spreads his arms out as he bolts down to the ring and slides in. He’s quickly on his feet again before jumping onto the bottom left turnbuckle. He spreads his arms again and does a backflip off of it.
Harrys: And his opponent, from Leeds, England, weighing in at 226 pounds, Chris Beckford!
Copeland: Beckford came off a huge win last week verse Rush, let’s see if he can continue the momentum.
Cohen: Last week Beckford faced a man more than twice his age who was overcome by exhaustion in the end. Against Hammond, Beckford will have to pull out all the stops.

Harrys: Here is your winner, Chris Beckford
Copeland And Beckford picks up another big win here tonight. Cohen I was cheering for Beckford... didn't you say my guy would lose.
Cohen Beckford got a lucky shot with that knee to the jaw. The ref should see if he was hiding a metal plate under his pad.
Copeland Can't you just accept the fact that Beckford was the better man tonight.
Cohen No. Hammond again has been screwed out of what should've been an easy win
The crowd cheers loudly as Beckford begins to make his way to the back, slapping hands with all the fans. He turns to look back at the ring as Hammond has recovered. He poses his signature arms out pose and smiles and Hammond kicks the ropes in anger.
Harrys: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
"Down With The Sickness" by Disturbed begins playing as Corey Payne makes his way out to a loud cheer from the fans. He walks down the ramp high fiving a few fans before sliding under the bottom rope and holds his fist up.
Harrys: Introducing first, from Las Vegas, Nevada, he stands 6'3" and weighs 250 lbs, Corey Payne!
"Hello" by Brookroyal hits the sound system as Matt Royale walks out with a smug look on his face. The crowd begins booing as he starts jawing with fans along the entrance ramp. He enters the ring slowly and leans against the corner, staring down Corey Payne.
Harrys: And his opponent, from St. Louis, Missouri, he stands 6'1" and weighs 235 lbs, Matt Royale!
Copeland: Both of these men have qualified for the KFAD match at KC. They'll be looking for momentum going into that match.
Cohen: What is with this Corey Payne? He was an MMA fighter who couldn't cut it and decided that wrestling was his only out? Royale is Wrestling Royalty, he should win this and the KFAD match no problem. It's in his blood.
The ref signals for the bell as Payne and Royale square off. Payne goes right for his Superman Punch but Royale moves out of the way and hits a back suplex on Payne. He applies a waistlock and keeps Payne grounded, hitting a few elbows into his back in the process. Payne flips around and goes for a triangle choke, but Royale stands up quickly escaping the submission. Payne gets to his feet and Royale goes for a clothesline but Payne ducks and catches him with a roundhouse kick, knocking Royale into the corner. Payne whips him to the opposite corner and catches the rebounding Royale and hits an elevated sideslam and hooks the leg, getting a two count on the pin attempt.
Copeland: So far it's been a fairly technical match. Royale has been trying to wear out Payne, and Payne has been going for submissions on Royale.
Cohen: Royale's doing what's right in the ring. He's what wrestling should be.
Payne pulls Royale up and connects with a knee to the midsection. He lifts Royale up and hits a belly to belly suplex, dropping him squarely on his back. He begins punching away at Royale, but Royale blocks a fist and kicks Payne off. Payne rushes the rising Royale. Royale counters Paynes clothesline attempt with an STO backbreaker. He hits a leg drop across the throat of Payne and goes for the cover, getting a two count. He drags Payne up and lifts him up, dropping him with a suplex.

Cohen: What did I say Seabass? Royale's classic wrestling style is defeating this MMA loser.
Copeland: Royale may be in control, but Payne can lock in a submssion move from anywhere and end this.
Royale slowly gets to his feet and pulls Payne up and whips him into the ropes. He catches him with a running knee lift, knocking Payne into the corner. Royale rushes forward and hits a clothesline in the corner and pulls Payne out and connects with a DDT. He goes for the cover but only gets a two count. Royale looks frustrated and he picks Payne up once more. He hits an European upper cut on Payne, and then a kick to the midsection. Royale hooks both of Payne's arms and hits his Crowning Jewel finisher! But Payne holds onto Royale's arms and suddenly gets his back and locks in the Protolock! He starts choking Royale out immediately, and Royale has no choice but to tap out!
Harrys: Here is your winner via Submission, Corey Payne!
Copeland: What did I tell you Cohen? Even after Royale hit his Crowning Jewel DDT, Payne was able to lock in a submission and get the victory.
Cohen: That choke is illegal! It clearly is meant for an eight sided ring and not a four sided ring. Payne cheated Royale out of a victory!
Payne finally lets go of the submission and gets to his feet as the crowd cheers loudly. The ref raises his hand in victory as Royale coughs and struggles to get some air in his lungs. Payne exits the ring and walks up the entrance ramp, holding his hand up in the air.
Harrys: The following contest is a League Two Pointer Match, scheduled for one fall!
‘Bliss’ bursts throughout the arena to a massive pop as dark red lights start to flash. Blade walks out on to the stage and looks around the crowd before giving his signature pose and heading down the ramp.
Harrys: And his opponent, from Dublin, Ireland, weighing in at 235 pounds, Blade!
Copeland: If Blade stands a chance at getting a chance to get near the top again, he must win this match. But his opponent is not an easy one as Zander is undefeated in the Elite X League.
Cohen: Only because he’s had worst opponents in comparison!
The arena goes dark with the lights flashing as Zander comes out to a round of applause.
Harrys: His opponent, representing the Elite X League, from Glasglow, Scotland, weighing in at 235 pounds, Zander!
He stops at the top of the stage and points at the crowd until Frankie Smith runs out of the curtain with a steel chair and slams into Zander’s back, Zander staggers to turn around and Frankie takes another shot at Zander’s head, knocking him out. Frankie says “You will never have a shot at this!” but Blade suddenly gets out of the ring and runs up the ramp, which gets Frankie out the arena. Blade stands at the top of the stand above Zander and isn’t sure what to do.
He looks down and thinks for a moment, he then picks up Zander and carries him down to the ring. He rolls Zander in and the bell sounds. Blade goes for the cover 1……2… kickout by Zander. Blade holds his head in disbelief as Zander managed to kick out. He picks up Zander and hits The Halo. Cover by Blade 1…..2…..3 which gets the crowd booing! Blade just gets up and walks back up the ramp without bothering to celebrate.
Harrys: Here is your winner, Blade!
Copeland: What the hell was Frankie doing here? He’s supposed to be on Ascension! He has no business being here!
Cohen: It is his business when it involves the Elite X Championship! But Blade did the right thing of letting the match continue.
Copeland: Well Blade didn’t know what to think, but given that the match hadn’t started and it wasn’t another League Member who attacked Zander, Blade had no other choice, nor did the ref. While it might be harsh to criticise Blade, he didn’t ask for this to happen! In the end, old rivalries die hard, I hope Zander is ok though. Well Ladies and Gentleman, despite this situation, we still got another EurAsian League match still to come, but we also got some debutants appearing next. John Smith and The Killjoy mark their WZCW contracted debut with their opening bouts, up next!
Harrys: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
10's by Pantera as The KillJoy appears as the opening guitar riff hits. He walks frantically around the entrance ramp staring blindly at the ring. He then marches straight to the ring and rolls in.
Harrys: Introducing first from Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico, weighing in at 225lbs, The KillJoy!
Copeland: We've had many interesting characters in WZCW. What do you make of KillJoy there Cohen?
Cohen: First it's The KillJoy, and second, I think he is a nut case. But a nut case might be just what it takes to beat his opponent.
The KillJoy poses on the turnbuckle as Sound of Madness by Shinedown hits and John Smith appears on the entrance ramp. The crowd boos loudly as he stares right at The KillJoy, holding his left middle finger up at the crowd.
Harrys: And from London, England, weighing in at 250lbs, John Smith!
Copeland: John Smith is definitely not in WZCW to make any friends.
Cohen: Friends are overrated there Seabass. They do nothing but hold people back. John Smith is not here to be held back, he's here to destroy.
The bell sounds and both men quickly lock up. The KillJoy locks in a headlock and then starts giving Smith a noogie. Smith waves his arms frantically and finally pushes The KillJoy off. The KillJoy bounces off the ropes and is put to the mat by a hard shoulder. Smith stomps hard on The KillJoys face and swears at him. Smith bounces off the ropes, The KillJoy rolls as Smith jumps over. The KillJoy is up. He ducks a clothesline by Smith, bounces off the ropes and hits a running side kick on Smith. He goes for a pin, but only gets a one. Smith starts to get up, but The KillJoy wraps a Sleeper Hold with a body scissors on Smith.
Copeland: The Killjoy is off to a good start. He's really frustrating Smith with his unorthodox offence.
Cohen: The KillJoy is playing with fire here by messing with John Smith. Smith doesn't like to play games, the only game he plays is to Kill Joy, haha, get it.
Copeland: No I don't Cohen, but look now. This match could be over fast.
Smith is struggling to reach the ropes as The KillJoy still has the Sleeper Hold locked in. Smith is beginning to panic and starts swings elbows at The KillJoy. He then grabs The KillJoys left leg and begins punching and bending it. The KillJoy finally releases the hold. Both men are up. The Killjoy with a quick rack of the face. He then bounces off the ropes and goes for another running super kick. Smith ducks and hits The KillJoy with an inverted atomic drop. The KillJoy is lying on the mat as Smith begins stomping hard on The KillJoys knee. Smith yanks The Killjoy up on his feet and hits the Straightjacket DDT. He picks him up again and hits it again. He goes for the pin and gets a close 2 count. He picks up The Kill Joy and throws him into the turnbuckle. He throws a few haymakers and then starts chocking The KillJoy. The ref counts all the way up to 4 and Smith lets go right at 5.
Cohen: John Smith is not letting up Seabass. He is taking the life out of The KillJoy.
Copeland: Yes, you could say that he's really being a Kill Joy.
Cohen: Are you trying to be funny. Because you're hurting my ears.
Smith goes to strike The KillJoy again. The Killjoy counters and slams Smiths head into the turnbuckle. He follows up with a german suplex. Both men are down as the ref begins counting. He gets to 7 as both men stand up. Smith and The KillJoy exchange punches. The KillJoys grabs Smiths arm and DDT's it to the mat. The KillJoy stands ready to bounce as Smith slowly gets to his feet. He runs at Smith, but Smith counters with a bearhug. The KillJoy cries in pain as Smith swings him around. The ref checks to see if The KillJoy is tapping. The KillJoy cries no and begins throwing punches. He grabs hold of Smiths nose and squeezes as Smith finally lets go. The KillJoy grabs Smith by the throat and hits a Chockslam STO. He goes for the pin. 1... 2..., Smith just gets an arm up. The KillJoy goes over the ropes and stands on the ring apron, looking for Death From Above. He jumps on the ropes, but Smith is up and punches him outside the ring. The KillJoy looks hurt as fell on his knee. The ref begins a 10 count. The KillJoy struggles to his feet and just gets into the ring before 10. John Smith is waiting and hits the incapacitation as The KillJoy stands up. 1... 2... 3.
Harrys: Here is your winner, John Smith!
Copeland: John Smith with a commanding win here over the newcomer The KillJoy.
Cohen: I told you that John Smith was a force to be reckoned with. I guess you could also say he was a real Kill Joy today, haha.
Copeland: I think I said that one earlier.
Harrys: The following contest is an EurAsian League Match, scheduled for one fall!
‘Ten Thousand Fists’ blares out to a brilliant pop as the words SURVIVOR scream out to the crowd, and Rush emerges with a smile on his face as he does his traditional beating of his chest and grabbing of his right forearm with his left hand and raises it above his head in his signature pose before making his way down the ramp.
Harrys: Introducing first, from Windsor, Ontario, Canda, weighing in at 361 pounds, Rush!
Copeland: Rush must not let the pressure of Beckford and Blade’s wins get to him. He can still be in the running for the EurAsian League, but has to do what Blade failed to do last week, and that was beat Big Dave!
Cohen: To be fair, Blade’s mind was elsewhere, expecting a switch out of nowhere, but Dave remained focused, like he will be tonight. Rush has no chance if he can’t even beat Chris Beckford, let alone Big Dave!
He heads to the front side of the ring and climbs onto the apron and poses as the song screams TEN THOUSAND FISTS IN THE AIR in a strobe of camera flashes. He enters the ring and beats his chest again as we stands in the ring waiting for his opponent, the crowd start building up a “Rush!” chant as the waiting continues.
The crowd stop chanting in favour of boos at Rush’s opponent, who heads out onto the stage wearing his hoodie, only to pull it off of him instantly as he heads down the ramp, taunting Rush to get the match going.
Harrys: His opponent, from London, England, weighing in at 268 pounds, representing the rWo, Big Dave!
Copeland: If the very motivated Big Dave gets the victory here tonight, he will literally have one hand on the title shot. It’s up to Rush to make sure that doesn’t happen!
Cohen: What do you mean "If"? This is his for the taken, the new age will take out the old school!
Big Dave gets down the ramp and is about to slide in the ring until a fan says something to him, to which he turns and starts trash talking back, while this happens, Rush runs at the ropes and uses full momentum to leap over the top rope and land on top of Dave, to which the crowd cheers ecstatically! Rush slowly gets up and gets his opponent to up on his feet, but Dave snaps out of the grip and hits a few rights before using his shoulder to push Rush’s back against the ring apron, holding his back against the pain. Dave then takes Rush to the ring steps and slams Rush’s head against the metal. The ref shouts at Dave to get in ring, to which he responds by shoving Rush in and follows suit with the bell finally sounding as Dave goes for a quick cover 1….2… kickout by Rush.
Dave has a disappointed look on his face as he thought that the steps would be enough, Rush slowly stirs onto his side while checking his head isn’t bleeding from the early attack as Dave gets back on his feet and kicks an unsuspecting Rush in the back. Rush tenses up from the pain going down his back as Dave goes for another kick and another until the ref gets him to pull off and he argues at the ref before giving a stomp on Rush’s head. Dave then heads to the turnbuckle and looks at Rush who is on one knee before he climbs the turnbuckle, waiting for his opponent to be fully vertical. Only Rush is quick to hit the ropes and Dave loses his balance, landing on his groin and then falling forwards off the turnbuckle to the canvas.
Cohen: DQ him ref! That was a low blow!
Copeland: This match is not going to end like this Cohen, Rush lost his balance
Cohen: Sometimes I find your commentary a little biased there, Seabass!
Rush grabs Dave’s legs in a slingshot position before he looks at the crowd with an excited look on his face, he starts spinning around in a circle, lifting Dave up in the air, before letting go and dropping his opponent onto the floor, followed by a quick arm raise to the crowd. Dave slowly crawls to the corner, Rush spots this and walks to the other corner, he stands in a leaning position, looking ready to burst out of the corner, he stamps his foot a couple of times before running at Dave and giving a big splash to sandwich him into the corner. Dave staggers over the corner before Rush props him onto the second rope and then hits a Border Toss, slamming Dave with full momentum and goes for a pin, 1…..2… kickout by Dave.
Rush stomps on Dave a couple of times before he rolls out of the ring to buy himself some time on the outside. Rush follows suit as Dave slowly walks on the outside before dropping to one knee by the same steel steps that he slammed Rush’s head against, 1. Rush looks at Dave’s position and looks for a little revenge moment by slapping his right leg, 2, as Dave’s head is in the line of fire with the steps next to him, 3. Rush goes for the run at Dave who hits a quick drop toe hold on Rush and his face slams against the steps once again. 4. Big Dave uses the apron to get back on his feet, sliding inside and then outside the ring to break the referee’s count.
Copeland: Interesting strategy by the league leader here
Cohen: He doesn’t want a cheap victory like Rush would!
Dave gets Rush up and rolls him into the ring, he stays on the outside as he waits for Rush to get back up. When he does, Dave jumps up onto the apron and pulls Rush’s throat against the ropes, slamming him back to the canvas, which gets the crowd booing and the ref gives Dave a warning. Dave slides back in the ring and goes for a leg drop on Rush’s head before getting him up and dropping a huge DDT on his opponent. He goes for the cover 1…..2… kickout by Rush. Dave says that it’s time to end this, he gets Rush up again and goes to lift him on his shoulders but the pain from earlier makes Dave drop Rush back down, who then hits Dave in the abs, sequentially lifting him on top of his shoulders and goes for the Rushing Powerbomb, he connects and goes for the cover 1…..2…..Dave’s foot was on the ropes.
Rush holds his head in disbelief as he though he had the victory there. He gets Dave up onto his feet and then runs at the ropes, looking for the big boot, but Dave snaps out of the grogginess and hits the Checking Out, taking out Rush but himself too, with his arm on top 1…..2……3.
Harrys: Here is your winner, Big Dave!
Copeland: Rush had the match won, but had it not been for the foot on the ropes, it would have been a different story here.
Cohen: Make all the excuses you want Seabass! Fact is, Big Dave once again outsmarted an opponent who thought he had the victory. Sure, Dave might have been fatigued at the end, but he has the win under his belt and edging closer to that title shot at Kingdom Come!
The ref raises Big Dave’s arm, despite him only just waking up from the knockout, he eventually crawls towards the ropes and edges out of the ring, holding onto his stomach from the earlier splash by Rush. The ref raises his hand once again as Dave leans on his knees, staring back at Rush who is coming too, Dave has an intense look on his face given the match he just had before smiling and heading up the ramp as Rush sits up, talking to the referee about what just happened.
Copeland: Well Ladies and Gentleman, we still got champions in action still to come, with the Tag, EurAsian, World and True World Champions all in action still. First up is Teach N’ Kurtesy, they will be facing Heavy Artillery, with Round Two of the EurAsian Best of Three after.
Cohen: And a Main Event that only geniuses like Chuck Myles can book, Everest and Ricky get it on again!
Copeland: Champion vs. Champion, it can’t get any higher then this, especially when pride is at stake!
Harrys: The following tag team contest is scheduled for one fall! Now if Heavy Artillery win this match, they will be added to the Tag Team Title Match at Kingdom Come!
The crowd get into an uproar to see William Teach and Steve Kurtesy enter onto the stage with their arms raised in the air holding their tag team belts.
Harrys: Introducing first at a combined weight of 471 pounds, the WZCW Tag Team Champions, Dr. Steven Kurtesy, William Teach, Teach N’ Kurtesy!
Copeland: The Tag Champions are in action this week, in an actual tag team match. Now what’s interesting about last week is that they decided to make Heavy Artillery feel their presence
Cohen: That’s right Seabass, if we take a look last week, this happened right after Second Coming won the Tag Contendership
Cohen: That remains to be seen, currently they stand as the third best team in WZCW, fourth if you include the rWo/FHD.
Teach and Kurtesy stand tall in the ring as they discuss tactics as "Carry On Wayward Son" hits over with both members of Heavy Artillery coming through the curtain. They ignore their usual pose and head straight down, pointing and trash talking in Teach and Kurtesy’s directions.
Harrys: Their opponents, at a combined weight of 458 pounds, Max Karzai and Jordan Lights, Heavy Artillery!
They stop outside the ring and Karzai tells Lights to hold back but the Tag Champions slide out under the ropes and go for the quick attack, but Heavy Artillery dodge and start hitting out on their opponents. Karzai rolls Teach into the ring as the bell sounds while Kurtesy and Lights are forced back into their respective corners. Karzai stands in a preying position as he waits for Teach to get up and hits a fireman’s carry on the tag champion followed by a sudden leg drop. Karzai takes teach by the head and bounces it against his team’s turnbuckle and tags in Jordan and both hit a double dropkick which gets the crowd hot as Jordan tries to lock in a sleeper hold but Teach moves up to his knees quickly and hits a few elbows in the abs before breaking free of the hold.
Jordan then irish whips Teach against the ropes but Kurtesy blind tags Teach on the rebound while Teach is on the receiving end of a powerslam from Lights, who is then caught out by a german suplex from Kurtesy while Teach slowly rolls out to ringside to get back to his corner. Kurtesy walks up behind Lights and tries to go for another german suplex but Lights is quick to turn to face him, but Kurtesy still lifts him over his head with a Northern Lights suplex and goes for a cover 1…..2… kickout by Lights. Kurtesy is back up first with Jordan slowly behind, Kurtesy uses this moment to go for a shuffle side kick, but Jordan catches it, he then spins Kurtesy around who tries an enziguri but Lights ducks out and then hits a clothesline to put his opponent down.
Copeland: Awesome display of technical skill by these two men!
Cohen: More like bad misses with lucky shots!
Lights gets up and drags Kurtesy into the corner, he grabs the second ropes and starts slamming his shoulder into Kurtesy’s abs, he does it a couple more times until the referee tells him to stop due to them being next to the ropes. Lights then steps back a bit before then running at Kurtesy with the knee. Teach then tries to argue with the ref that Lights needs to give him a moment but the ref won’t have anything of it as Lights goes for a sidewalk slam. He goes over to tag Karzai in who hits an elbow on Kurtesy and goes for a cover 1….2…kickout by Kurtesy. Karzai nods at Lights in acknowledgement to end the match, so he signals for the Crazy Train. He gets Kurtesy into position, but he then loosens the hold and grabs Kurtesy by the waist and hits his second german suplex of the night.
Teach starts clapping to getting the crowd going, whist reaching out for the tag as far as he can. Kurtesy starts crawling towards his corner as Karzai just about stirs from the throw and Teach gets the tag. He runs to the nearest turnbuckle and climbs up quickly to hit a moonsault, but Karzai rolls out of the way and re-tags Lights back in. Jordan gets Teach up and locks him in a Northern Lights hold, he hits the first, followed by a second, he gets ready for the third, to complete his Light Sentence, but Teach wiggles underneath and gets him on his shoulders. He hits the Pinball Wizard and goes for the pin, while Kurtesy runs at Karzai who take each other out with a double clotheslines, 1…..2…..3.
Harrys: Here are your winners, the Tag Team Champions, Teach N’ Kurtesy!
Copeland: A battle of close encounters here, but the Tag Champions remain victorious and will continue to build momentum as they will await the rematch against Second Coming at Kingdom Come. But where do you see Heavy Artillery going from here Jack?
Cohen: Well Seabass, it will be rather hard taken to know that they have been proven to be the weaker team on this occasion, but much like Second Coming proved, it’s not always the first chance you need to make success. I’m certain that these guys will somehow get into that title match, one way or the other!
Copeland: Well Ladies and Gentleman, where gold was not at stake, this match does! It’s the Second Round of the Best of Three Series for the EurAsian Championship. Showtime may have been lucky or smart enough to get a countout to take the first round. But will lightning strike twice? Or will Lars be even more dangerous, considering what happened to Johnny Klamor earlier this week?
Cohen: As much as I like both these guys, I can’t call it, I think this may be even tighter than the last one! But Lars has to win so we can see them go at it one more time! That’s all I can ask for, right?
Copeland: Well either way, you got them again this week and it’s up next!
Harrys: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is the second match in the Eurasian two out of three falls contest!
Cougar makes his way out from the back, his Eurasian Championship thrown over his shoulder. The crowd loudly boos him as he makes his way down the ramp. He enters the ring and holds up his belt as the crowd continues booing him.
Harrys: Introducing first from Winnipeg, Canada. He stands 6'1" and weighs 213 lbs, the Eurasian Champion, David Cougar!
"Broken Soul" by Original Sin begins playing as Lars makes his way down the entrance ramp and enters the ring. He walks to the corner and turns around, staring down Cougar.
Harrys: And his opponent, from Ragnarog, he stands 6'6" and weighs 275 lbs, Lars Reidar!
Copeland: This should be a great match Cohen. Cougar was able to claim victory in the first match via count out. I suspect Lars will be looking to exact revenge and tie this series up.
Cohen: No question Seabass, but if Lars wants to claim victory tonight he has to stay away from the games Showtime likes to play. It cost Lars the first match last week.
The ref signals for the bell as the two walk to the middle of the ring. Cougar quickly begins trash talking Reidar. Cougar tries punching Lars but Lars catches his fist and whips him into the ropes and quickly hits a roundhouse kick, sending Cougar crashing to the ground. Lars stomps away at Cougar before dropping an elbow across his chest. Lars goes for the quick cover and only gets a 1 count. Cougar is back to his feet and connects with a dropkick, staggering Lars backwards. Lars charges the rising Cougar but gets tripped up with a drop toe hold. Cougar applies a rear chin lock, trying to wear out the bigger Lars.
Cohen: Excellent strategy from our Eurasian Champion. Let Lars struggle and use his stamina just to escape these holds.
Copeland: With a win here, Cougar can guarantee his spot at Kingdom Come against the winner of the Eurasian League. He can't give Lars a chance to take it to the third and decisive match.
Lars slowly gets to one knee as Cougar's hold on the submission begins to slip. Lars hits a few elbows into Cougar's midsection before lifting him up and connecting with a Northern Lights Suplex! He bridges the suplex and gets a 2 count from the pinning combination. Both men stir slowly to their feet at the same time. Cougar charges towards Lars but gets hit with a sudden Big Boot. Lars grabs Showtime and pulls him to his feet, but Showtime counters with a kick to the midsection and quickly slides behind Lars and hits a huge reverse DDT!
Copeland: Cougar is in control! He's mere moments from retaining his Eurasian Title!
Cohen: Cougar has been one step ahead of Lars since this series started. He's going to get the last laugh if he can get the pinfall here!
Suddenly Tarja runs out from the back and jumps up onto the apron. THe referee's attention turns to her as Cougar covers Lars. Tarja continues to keep the ref's attention as Showtime gets up and walks towards her. Lars meanwhile stirs slowly and moves behind Showtime, connecting with a low blow. He rolls Showtime up and the ref turns around. The ref counts to three!
Harrys: Here is your winner, Lars Reidar!
Cohen: Where did that wench come from? Showtime had this match won had it not been for her.
Copeland: This series now goes to a third and decisive match with that controversial win by Lars!
Lars gets to his feet as Tarja makes her way into the ring. She grabs his wrist and raises his hand in victory as Showtime rolls out of the ring in obvious pain. The ref comes over and places the belt across Showtime's stomach.
Copeland: Coming up, we have Steamboat Ricky and Everest sqauring off in an epic battle!
Harrys: The following contest is the Champion vs. Champion Match, scheduled for one fall!
Ricky comes out to a large outburst of boos as he raises his championship belt high in the air and makes his way down to the ring. He slides under the bottom rope and does his usual run around the ring. He looks around with a smile on his face as he looks set for action against Everest.
Harrys: Introducing first, representing the rWo from Tortuga, weighing in at 260 pounds, he is the True World Heavyweight Champion, Steamboat Ricky!
Copeland: Well Ricky looks fired up for his first match since the Lethal Lottery. He was handpicked by Everest as his opponent here.
Cohen: Something tells me that this isn’t the only thing Everest handpicked for tonight!
Orange laser lights shoot back and forth across the blank big screen that then flashes the words “Are you Ready to Go”. The arena goes dark for a few seconds until the lights return with the World Heavyweight Champion standing in middle of the stage. He makes his way to the ring rather hastily but has his eyes set on Ricky.
Harrys: His opponent, from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 205 pounds, he is the WZCW World Heavyweight Champion, Everest!
Cohen: The champion is set and focused. You can see he wants to his this match!
Copeland: Wonder what he must be thinking right now
Everest slides in under the ropes and then climbs up the nearest turnbuckle to show off the belt to crowd in a series of camera flashes. He climbs down and faces Ricky who has his belt on him, taunting it, say “I’m the Real Champion!” The ref eventually takes both belts off of each champion and hands it over to the timekeeper before signalling to get the match underway. The two men stand in each other’s face, not saying a thing, with Everest giving a stern look while Ricky has a weird smile going. Ricky then goes for a fist but Everest blocks and starts getting a few rights in before Ricky gets his own series in. Ricky then irish whips Everest only for the champion to hit a neckbreaker. He gets Ricky up and does an irish whip on him but Ricky reverses on the return with knee strike.
Both men stand tall again as they have so far matched each other on offence, they grapple up in the middle of the ring, with both men locking for position. Ricky shoves then Everest shoves followed by a headlock, Ricky reverses looking for the belly to belly, but Everest counters by getting behind going for a german suplex but Ricky uses the ropes to bounce him off of it. Everest rolls backwards and goes for a run but Ricky tries a back elbow with Everest ducking and leaping in the air for a spinning heel kick, but only gets air.
Copeland: If I were asked, who is the true World Champion right now, I can’t say!
Cohen: Well it’s Ricky, his is the one with that official title!
Everest goes for another attack, but Ricky lifts him, going for a pumphandle slam but Everest gets out of it and connects with a Russian leg sweep, taking down his foe to the mat. He gets Ricky up onto his feet again but Ricky then goes for a bite and the ref starts his count to five, with Ricky breaking off at four. Everest checks his face to see if he’s bleeding at all but appears fine, but Ricky suddenly hits a school boy and goes for a quick cover 1…..2… kickout by Everest.
Everest gets up again and tells Ricky to come at him, so he does so and Everest tries for The Rock Slide, but Ricky elbows out of it, Ricky then kicks Everest in the abs, looking for the Blunderbass, but Everest shoves Ricky away. On his return he’s met with an enziguri and he thinks for a moment on how to get one on Ricky. He gets up and takes Ricky to the corner, he shoves him into it and starts with some rights, suddenly Ricky blocks one and has Everest on his shoulders, going for the Deck Swabber, but Everest counters with a hurricanrana and then grabs Ricky from behind to go for the Mountain Climber but Ricky jumps off his feet and hits a counter on Everest.
Copeland: These men know each too well, it’s a scary sight!
Cohen: Got that right Seabass, I can’t see either of them quitting now while both are ahead
Everest and Ricky slowly stir off the mat before Everest says “Screw it!” He rolls out of the ring and grabs his World Title belt from the timekeeper and starts walking past the ring as Ricky leans through the ropes to grab him, but Everest just stares and then whacks him with gold and the ref signals for the immediate disqualification as the crowd boos with Everest heading up the ramp. He continues up as the FHD come through the crowd to tend to Ricky with Everest just staring back.
Harrys: The winner of this match as a result of a disqualification, Steamboat Ricky!
Copeland: What a poor sense of bad form by Everest. I hope he doesn’t pull this against Titus at Kingdom Come!
Cohen: Big deal Seabass, Titus is the one that has to beat Everest, not the other way around! Everest is keeping himself fresh to countdown the days to Kingdom Come!
Copeland: But given he chose Ricky for his opponent, you think he would go all the way with it!
Cohen: Champion’s prerogative!
Everest continues up the ramp and poses with his World Title belt, proclaiming this is his as Ricky and his fellow rWo members stand there watching on as Meltdown goes off the air.
