The camera moves around the sold out Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas. An amazing atmosphere tonight as the crowd cheers wildly while being shown on camera. Several colourful signs are shown and then the camera cuts to the announce desk where Cat Connor and Jack Cohen are at ringside. Connor: We are live for the final Ascension as we approach Lethal Lottery. Cat Connor broadcasting live from a packed house here in El Paso, Texas. As always I’m joined by my broadcast partner, Jack Cohen. Can you feel the excitement in this building, partner? I’m ready for Lethal Lottery this Sunday but who knows what is going to go down tonight. Cohen: This crowd is deafening! They are pumped for tonight and they should be. We’ve got a stacked card tonight, including two thirds of Vis Imperium! After the cowardly actions of Justin Cooper and Mark Keaton on Meltdown both of them are going to get what they deserve; a beating at the hands of the most dominant stable in professional wrestling. I can’t wait to see Abel Hunnicutt tear the glitter and leather off Mark Keaton and for Austin Reynolds to put that loudmouth Justin Cooper back into his place. Guys around here getting to big for their boots, that’ll get sorted tonight. Connor: Not only will we see that heated rivalry continue but the World Heavyweight Champion, Garth Black, will be in action for the main event of the evening. It’s the return of the Second Coming, whether they agreed to it or not due to the order of Ascension General Manager, Becky Serra. They’ll take on Mikey Stormrage and his seemingly best friend, Eve Taylor in what is a blockbuster main event. Cohen: How in the world Mikey is able to have Eve as a best friend is beyond me. Watch her drop him once he is beaten by Garth Black. She can’t actually like him... can she? Anderson: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome... Eve Taylor! [YOUTUBE]8hkmuTvkp_s[/YOUTUBE] The arena goes dim, with a single spotlight shining at the top of the entrance ramp. Eve Taylor steps in it, with her head looking down, almost as if she is doubting herself. The response from the live crowd is intense, men and women cheering wildly. She slowly walks step-by-step down the ramp, treating it like a fashion runway, with her head slowly rising. As she gets halfway down the ramp, and the chorus kicks in, Eve Taylor raises her head, and shoots her arm into the air. Flames shoot out from behind her as she stands with her hand raised, looking directly towards the ring. Then, Eve heads to the ring, climbing up onto the ring apron, and ascending the turnbuckles throwing her same arm into the air to the applause of the crowd. She looks out to the audience, pointing around the arena, showing her support for the fans who support her. Connor: We were just speaking about her and Eve Taylor will open the show. A lot has been said about Eve Taylor going into the match this Sunday. So many people calling her the odds on favourite to win the Lethal Lottery and go to the main event of Kingdom Come. It’s going to be a lot of pressure for Taylor considering the amount of support she is going to have as we can see from the reaction here tonight. Cohen: She’s been one of the most unstoppable competitors throughout the last year. It was at Lethal Lottery last year that Eve Taylor started that historic Elite Openweight Championship reign. She’s making a habit of making history at Lethal Lottery. I think it’s going to take something special for anybody to stop her this Sunday. Taylor is handed a microphone as her music fades out, the crowd cheers her again and causes the former champion to smile. She walks into the middle of the ring and holds the microphone to her lips, slowly as to allow the fans to settle down. Taylor: Based on that reaction it sounds like you are all ready for Lethal Lottery this Sunday. I can understand why. We are approaching Kingdom Come, the biggest event of the year, something we all dream of headlining each year. For me, this time last year I was fighting for the Elite Openweight Championship and then I went on to hold it for longer than anyone else. I made history at Lethal Lottery last year. I will make history AGAIN! Cheers from the crowd; Taylor brushes her hair to the side and points to the fans. Taylor: For the past twelve months you fans have seen me put everything on the line inside this ring. I fought harder than ever before to keep the Elite Openweight Championship. I defended it over and over again until I couldn’t lift my shoulders off the mat but even then I refused to quit. I have proven myself time and time again and here I stand waiting for an opportunity. I’ve been waiting on the sideline since Unscripted for an opportunity at what I feel like I’ve earned; the World Heavyweight Championship! I have earned a shot at the title because I beat the last two men to hold the gold. A round of applause for Taylor and her success. Taylor: Now, Mikey and I get along great. We’re friends and tonight we will defeat Garth Black and Phoenix in the main event but don’t think that means I’m willing to step aside for him. I want the World Heavyweight Championship, no matter if it’s Mikey or Garth holding the gold. I’ve beaten them both, I beat them when they were at the peak of their powers and supposedly were the best in the world but I took them both to the limit and won! This Sunday I take the final step towards what I have earned through hard work. Lethal Lottery is everything I’ve been waiting for; it means more to me than anyone else. Lethal Lottery, winning and going to Kingdom Come, it means... She pauses, looking down at the floor and slowly raises her head. Taylor: Everything. Once again the crowd cheers. Taylor: This is the single most important focus in my life, both professionally and personally. Every vision I've had for my life revolves around me being the sole survivor, and winning the Lethal Lottery. I cannot... no, I will not imagine a future where I do not challenge for the World title at Kingdom Come. There is no Plan B. There cannot be a Plan B. I shall not prepare for the possibility of losing by conceiving, or merely thinking of, a Plan B. I must win. I have to win. Focusing on the camera, Taylor has a wild look in her eyes and stares intensely. Taylor: I. Will. Win. [YOUTUBE]Uz1Jwyxd4tE[/YOUTUBE] Black: I can only take so much of your ramblings and we’re not even halfway through the show and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to restrain myself. Most of the women boo but a smattering of men cheer for Black. He walks onto the stage with the WZCW World Heavyweight Championship wrapped around his waist. He stands on the stage, not looking likely to walk down to the ring, and begins pacing back and forth. Black: Dreams are nice when you go to sleep but it’s time to wake up now, little girl. Sleepy time is over and you’re in my world now. My world where I am the WZCW World Heavyweight Champion and you are nothing more than a jealous woman who just isn’t good enough. You can try and break all the glass ceilings you want but at the end of day, I’m standing here with what you have wanted for so long but have never been able to get. You’re just not good enough and this Sunday, you’ll still be the same inadequate little girl who doesn’t know her place. Eve shakes her head and goes to speak but Garth cuts her off. Black: No! Shut up! I sat in the back listening you and now it’s time for you to learn something. I’m the champion and you are not. Get that through your head. You haven’t been dominant. No, you’ve been stuck in the middle of the card while I’ve been in the main event. You beat me last week, fine, but when it comes to the big matches I get the job done. I’m the guy who wins when it matters and the moment the pressure reaches a boiling point I believe you’ll crumble. Black unhooks the World Heavyweight Championship and slings it over his shoulder. Taylor stares him down from inside the ring. Black: You don’t have what it takes to be World Champion just like Mikey Stormrage doesn’t have what it takes. How long did he hold this title? Five minutes or was it a ten? You two together still don’t have the right kind of stuff to be World Champion. So I hope you’re watching on Sunday as I beat your friend again and crush his dreams just like I’ll crush yours if you somehow win the Lethal Lottery match. Cinderella isn’t real and neither is a world where Eve Taylor becomes WZCW World Heavyweight Champion. Taylor: I’m not Cinderella. I’m Eve Taylor and this Sunday I’m going to win the Lethal Lottery. And when I standing in this ring with confetti falling, the crowd chanting my name and my ticket to the main event of Kingdom Come booked. I’ll think of you and I’ll smile. Either I’ll go to bed that night dreaming of the image of you laying on your back as Mikey wins the WZCW World Championship for the second time or I’ll be dreaming of the ass whoopin’ you’re going to get from me at Kingdom Come! Black is furious on the stage and holds the title belt high in the air. He yells into the microphone, Taylor looks on with a sly smirk on her face. Black: Neither of you will take this from me. Two on one, I’ve beaten those odds before and I’ll do it again. I’ve had the world against me and still I came out the other side as World Champion! If you think that after all that I’m going to lose my title to someone like... you. Oh, you’re even dumber than that fat idiot who thinks he actually has a chance on Sunday. Both of you are in for a reality check and on Sunday, I’m the guy who is going to give it to you. Black tosses the microphone and then holds the WZCW World Heavyweight Championship above his head to a mix of cheers and boos. Taylor watches on from inside the ring, looking at the man who she may very well face in the main event of Kingdom Come if he retains and she wins Lethal Lottery. She turns to the crowd and makes the belt sign on her stomach which receives a cheer from the audience. Eve exits the ring and begins making her way to the back, turning once she gets to the stage where Black stood, now long gone, and waves to the crowd. Cohen: That was intense! Could you imagine if that is our main event for Kingdom Come VIII? Garth Black just put Eve Taylor on notice that her dreams aren’t a priority for everyone else around here. Connor: Everybody believes they are going to win Lethal Lottery and Eve Taylor is betting on herself. She wants it. You could say she needs this win. People want to see Eve Taylor take that next step and as she said, she has beaten both Mikey Stormrage and Garth Black while they were World Heavyweight Champion. Cohen: I can’t wait to see these two go at it during the main event. I’m sure they’ll be trying to tear each other apart after this confrontation.
