* PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * The camera pans around a sold out arena of Milan faithful as the pyro erupts. The crowd roars, with the camera picking up a sign that reads "Welcome Home Eve" among others supporting their WZCW favorites. Copeland: Welcome and thank you for joining us here tonight ladies and gentlemen! I'm Sebastian Copeland alongside as always Jack Cohen, and Jack, tonight as a very European feel as we are coming to you live from Milan, Italy! Cohen: Buongiorno! Welcome to the one forty ninth edition of WZCW Meltdown! We have a big card here tonight in Italy, but I'm ready to hear this crowd in a few moments when new WZCW World Heavyweight Champion Eve Taylor walks through that curtain. It will be like an air raid siren going off! Copeland: But first, let's look at how Eve Taylor was triumphant at Lethal Lottery. [Yt]vN9n1k03mog[/Yt] The crowd applauds as Eve Taylor walks through the curtain. She poses on the ramp before she admires her newly won title. She throws it over her shoulder and heads down the ramp and climbs into the ring. She grabs a mic from a ringside attendant. Eve: It feels sooooo good to be home here in Milan! The crowd roars their approval at the name of the town. Eve: At Lethal Lottery I finally managed to win the WZCW world title. After months of trying. Match after match. I left my blood, sweat, and tears in that ring. And it was all for this! Eve thrusts the title belt above her head with her left hand as she parades around the ring. The fifteen pounds of gold glistening in the glare of the overhead lights. Eve: This had been my dream. My passion and drive that I have as a wrestler has carried me to this moment, and I plan to be champion for a long, long time. [youtube]JdWZolSp1cU[/youtube] She's cut off as the sound of a now all too familiar beat cuts through the arena. The crowd explodes as Tyrone Blades walks out onto the stage with a microphone in hand. Eve looks annoyed to see him, as he looks around, basking in the energy of the crowd. He walks down the ramp, climbs the stairs, and gets into the ring. Copeland: Oh my! It's the winner of the Lethal Lottery. And the only man in history to win two of them. Cohen: Yeah, but what is he doing here? Can't he see that the world champion is giving her victory speech in front of her home town fans? The nerve of this guy. Blades should have waited until she was finished. Tyrone raises his hand to shush the crowd, as as Eve looks on flabbergasted. Blades: I came out here to congratulate you, Eve. You did it. You finally made it to the big time. You're at the top of the mountain. And I'm happy for you. Really, I am. But if you didn't notice, at Lethal Lottery, I made history. I am the first and only man to win the Lottery twice! The crowd erupts, as chants of "Ty-rone Blades!" fills the arena. Eve grits her teeth in frustration. Thanks to the high def cameras, one could see the veins popping in her forehead. Eve: So what, do you want a parade or something? If you hadn't noticed, we're in my home town. And I'm the new world champion. And you just interrupted my victory speech. I know all about our date at Kingdom Come, but right now, this is my moment. So could you please do me a favor and leave my ring? Tyrone smirks, and holds the microphone to his face. Blades: It's your moment all right, and you've earned it, but honestly, I don't give a damn about your speech. I came out here to challenge you, Eve. I want my world title back. But I'm willing to fight fairly for it. No tricks. You think you're the best? Prove it. Defeat me at Kingdom Come, if you can! Eve laughs, and holds the mic up to respond, but the crowd starts to cheer even louder for Blades. Eve: Really? You of all people are going to come out here and talk about fairness? Don't think I've forgotten who you really are, Ty Burna! You're a snake. A liar. A manipulative bastard! You wear this obvious facade and you talk about honor. And respect. You don't have the first clue about those things! The crowd begins to boo, as Tyrone just shrugs. Eve looks around, not even believing what she's hearing. Eve: And to make things worse, you've brainwashed my fans into cheering you. Over me! The crowd boos eve louder, as Eve tries to calm them down, but to no avail. She stops and glares daggers at the man in front of her. Blades: You seem to have me confused with someone else, Eve. This is no facade. This is the real me. I told you that I would fight you fairly, and I mean that. I respect your abilities, but I could care less about your ambitions, or your dreams. You want to stay on top of this mountain? Beat me! I can smell the blood that you've spilled, and I can taste the salt in your tears. I can sense your fear. Even if I offered you my hand, it's clear that you'll just see me as the monster that I used to be, and not the man that's going to kick your ass at Kingdom Come! Eve's eyes go wide as the crowd erupts. She clutches the title to her chest and lowers the microphone. She looks around, stunned that her home town was supporting her opponent over her. Eve: I'm not scared of you! You want a fair fight? Fine! I'll give you a fair fight. I'm going to walk into Kingdom Come the WZCW world champion, and I'm going to walk out still the WZCW world champion! Eve drops the microphone and leaves the ring, as Tyrone plays to the crowd. Copeland: Strong words from the challenger, who wants a fair fight at Kingdom Come. What do you think, Jack? Cohen: If I were Eve, I would trust that man one bit. It's the same man that once held the entire company hostage just to further his own goals. And he wants to talk about honor and respect? I don't buy it. Copeland: Blades really does seem like a changed man, but is still as intense as ever.
