Backstage we see balloons and streamers of all sorts of colours hanging from the ceiling. A table is set up with several different kinds of pop and snacks and candies. There are toys like trampolines and basketball hoops on the ground as we turn to a large crowd of people singing. Crowd: "Happy Birthday dear Hayden! Happy Birthday to you!" Hayden is sitting in the centre surrounded by many of the WZCW wrestlers who are competing tonight. In front of him is a massive cake in the shape of a wrestling ring. Beside him is his father, Logan McAllister, smiling proudly. Hayden blows the candles out and everyone cheers loudly. Elizabeth Prince: What did you wish for Hayden? McAllister: Hey now, ya don't wanna tell nobody about dat. Then it won't come true. Batti Otaku: Let's open presents while we wait for the cake to be cut! Hayden: Yeah! McAllister: Well alright I suppose. But I want to staht- Mancini: Open mine first Hayden! Mancini drops his present right on Hayden's lap. Hayden opens it and it is an action figure of Anthony Mancini. Veejay: Wait, did you really just give Hayden an action figure of yourself. Mancini: Well, I am his favourite wrestler. McAllister: Second, maybe. Vee A.D.Z.'s present is next and Hayden opens it up and finds a book, to some disappointment. Vee A.D.Z.: Now son, don't be so down about it. This book has instructions on how to perform hundreds of different wrestling and submission holds. Study hard and in a few years time you'll be able to take down your old man. McAllister: I'm not that old or broken down yet. Okay everybody, I have something very special that I want to give to Hayden now and- ?????: Hey everyone! What's going on here. The crown turns around and sees Noah Ryder standing in the room. Everyone is silent. Logan's smile has turned into a snarl as he steps in front of his son. McAllister: You got some kind of nerve t- Mancini: It's Hayden's birthday! Logan McAllister's boy. Logan glares at Mancini who gets an elbow to the ribs from Vee. Ryder: It is! Well Happy Birthday kid. Ryder steps forward and puts his hand up for a high five from Hayden. The boy is not interested and clings to his dad, scared and angry. Ryder mistakes it for shyness and scratches his head. Ryder: You know I'm really sorry. I didn't bring a gift or anything. Boy do I feel like a heel. Hey, I do got something I can give you. Ryder takes the Elite Openweight title off his shoulder and extends it towards Hayden. Ryder: I don't know why I have this belt. Somebody just handed it to me when I walked into the building. It looks legit awesome. I think you should have it. Hayden forgets that he hates Ryder for a few minutes and takes the belt from him. Hayden: Oh my gawd, oh my gawd. Thank you so much. Ryder: No problem kid. Who knows, someday maybe your dad will win a belt like that. Logan looks about ready to deck Ryder when he slowly starts to back out. Ryder: Well I got to get ready for a match tonight. You have yourself a great party. Ryder leaves the room, Logan stands there with his fists clenched and his arms shaking. Hayden: Dad! Dad! Logan snaps out of it and looks to his son. McAllister: Right, your surprise. Let me just get that. As Logan goes to get his son's surprise the screen fades to black and the opening credits for Ascension begin to play with the sound of the crowd roaring in the background.

The birthday celebration creating a warm atmosphere in the arena as we are welcomed by our broadcast team; Cat Connor and Jack Cohen. Connor: Welcome to Ascension and we are live here tonight with this sold out arena. The fans getting a special treat with Logan McAllister hosting a birthday party for his young son. What a special moment to kickoff Ascension on the road towards Kingdom Come VIII. Cohen: I hate birthday parties. Always ended up getting the worst gifts. I'm here to see some wrestling and we've got a great show coming up tonight. I'm sure you've heard partner but tonight the opening contest will be Justin Cooper vs Eve Taylor. That's what many believe could be a pay-per-view main event and we're having it at the start of the show. Connor: It's an action packed night and we will also decide the number one contenders to the WZCW Tag Team Championships. After crowning new champions on Meltdown with Mark Keaton joining Vis Imperium alongside Constantine the challenge to dethrone them as champions will be extremely difficult for any team that wishes to face them. I look forward to that tag match later on between four tough competitors. Cohen: We also have the contract signing between Mikey Stormrage and Justin Cooper for their main event match at Kingdom Come. After what happened on Meltdown we all want answers as to if Justin knew about the attack. How will Mikey react when those two get into the same ring? I can't wait to find out. Connor: Stick around ladies and gentlemen as coming right up we our opening contest. The camera once again shows the fans and then move towards Anderson who standing by for the introductions of our opening contest.
