We open with the arena crammed full of WZCW fans who are keen to see what the post-KC IV shows can bring for WZCW, especially as the Master of Chaos is in charge but is not the World Champion after the big show. The atmosphere is electric and to say the crowd is hyped is an understatement. Copeland: “Good evening and welcome to the 74th edition of Meltdown!” Cohen: “We have a huge show that will deal with the fallout from Kingdom Come IV but also sets the path to Redemption.” Copeland: “KC was widely praised as our best show ever but it doesn’t stop there. Ty Burna isn’t hesitating to make his intentions clear as he has brought his Apostles together in a four on two handicap match.” [YOUTUBE]AedZ9ReH-Lk[/YOUTUBE] Copeland: “This man deserves all the praise and admiration that we can give. By beating Ty Burna, he retained his World Championship and that means Ty doesn’t have the keys to the kingdom” Cohen: “I am sure that the professor is all too aware that if Ty wants another shot, then he can take one, whenever he wants. Maybe that is why Ty has set up the handicap match, to soften his opponent up for the future.” Copeland: “With a match against Showtime David Cougar looming, maybe Ty is looking to play the long game.” Kurtesy quickly enters the ring. He looks happy but his walk to the ring portrays someone who is battered and bruised from his last match. He takes a mic from ringside and when he goes to speak, he has to wait for some time as the pop from the crowd has to die down. When he does speak, he does in a calm and emotional tone. “I want to thank everyone who has been so great to me. If it wasn’t for the support of you all and the guys in the back, I would not have this prize after Kingdom Come. This means everything to me so thank you!” Kurtesy raises the belt up in the air to a great pop. Again, he has to wait for the noise to calm down. “So no matter what or who comes next, I am ready and waiting. Anybody who wants a shot has to know that I am not going down without one hell of a fight. Showtime David Cougar next week is going to be a great challenge but I am looking to go into Redemption with this championship because being a champion for your people is the biggest honour I could ever have and... [YOUTUBE]0eTjMNV__5M[/YOUTUBE] The charismatic new number 1 contender Showtime David Cougar makes his way down the stage ramp and enters the ring. He goes to the side of the ring and grabs a microphone. He takes off his shades and stares around at the crowd before looking at Kurtesy. Showtime: Well... you're not the person that I was expecting to be standing here waiting to defend his title against me. I can't say that I'm disappointed. Would've been thrilled under normal circumstances. I look forward to not having to face Ty Burna again for the millionth time and once again wage this endless war that he and I have been having. I guess I'm just... surprised is all. I'm sure you felt at times that the whole world was stacked against you. Not only did you have Ty Burna to deal with... a man who has only been beaten by a few handful of people, you and me included in that now of course, but you have also had to deal with his cronies. Chris K.O., James King, Mister Alhazred, Alex Bowen, S.H.I.T. Even Barbosa and Toyota have at times worked for Ty Burna and been apart of his little game to control WZCW. And you... survived. All the beatings that you incurred. All the times when a lesser man, or hell maybe even a smarter man, would've just laid down for him already and handed over the belt that consumed a whole years worth of Ty Burna's existence in WZCW. Funny how you survived while the whole landscape around you has been destroyed. And what have you got to show for it hmm? That shiny title belt that you have on your shoulder huh? That belt means nothing now that Ty Burna has full control of WZCW. At a moments notice it could be stripped from you. At a sick desire, Ty Burna could put you in a 10 on 1 handicap match and easily walk all over you and regain that belt. You did absolutely nothing for the good of this company at WZCW. You won nothing. The words are heard loudly by both men in the ring and the fans in the arena. They are supportive of Steven Kurtesy and chant his name. Showtime: Ty Burna was the only person who won at Kingdom Come and he won everything. The only thing you did for yourself was delay the inevitable. You say that you were in this to fight the evil that Ty Burna was bringing into WZCW. You spoke about stopping the Chaos and ending the terror once and for all... and you let it happen... and all for selfish greed. You know, I thought Ty was just blowing a whole bunch of smoke and trying to make you second guess yourself when he talked about you being selfish and wanting to remain WZCW Champion more than protecting the WZCW Franchise. Well... it turns out Ty Burna was right. The minute that you won that title belt, you put protecting WZCW from evil to the back of your to do list and focused all of your attention on keeping that belt. All of this... all that has happened and will happen now is all your fault because of your selfishness. The crowd is booing and cheering as Kurtesy looks around at the audience. Showtime paces a little around the ring and then continues.* Showtime: I hope that by beating Ty Burna in a match at Kingdom Come, I hope that you are happy with yourself, that you are to the freaking moon, because that happiness is not going to last. Not when Ty Burna's shadow is fully cast over WZCW. Kurtesy I respect you as an opponent, but as a person, my respect for you has diminished. You be proud of yourself for as long as you are champion because I'm here to tell you it ain't going to last. Consider this a warning, whether Ty Burna rips it from your cold dead body or he kindly grants me my title match I won at Kingdom Come, you will lose that World Heavyweight Title belt and then you will be right where you put the rest of us. In hell with nothing. Showtime lowers his mic. The crowd is very shocked by the harsh words Showtime had for Steven Kurtesy. The champion looks like he's about to respond when: Cohen: “Oh dear! I have a feeling this is not going to end well.” The familiar music of Ty Burna plays as the new owner of WZCW walks out on stage, his Apostles of Chaos standing behind him. Burna: What is this squabbling I have in my ring now? *Showtime... I was wondering when your teeth would come out. Rather than chew our World Champion apart, why don't you celebrate what is to come in WZCW. We are entering a new era, one where we will see WZCW rise to new heights, even if they have to come from the ashes of those who dare get in my way. Kurtesy, I must congratulate you on your victory at Kingdom Come. I honestly didn't think that you had what it took to pull it off, but you proved me wrong. Granted my mind was then on more important things to come during our match, still I'm proud to call you our companies champion. Unlike the man who has earned the right to face you next for your title. Showtime, don't think of me as some sick or twisted evil mad men. A deal is a deal Showtime and I will honour your right to face the World Champion at his next title defense. However, if you're looking for redemption I can assure you that you will not find it, nor will this match take place at out next PPV called Redemption. For that I have a very special plan for the WZCW World Heavyweight Championship. Instead... we have a very special show coming up that's called Ascension 50. Ahh yes... it feels good to be in control of both Meltdown and Ascensions cards, and to celebrate this milestone show, it will be headlined by a WZCW World Heavyweight Title Match. Steven Kurtesy will defend against Showtime David Cougar in two weeks time. Now I hope that this settles all of your matters and I ask that you leave the ring so we can begin my show. I would hate to have to send my Apostles to remove my two biggest stars. A smile curls on Ty Burna's face. Steven Kurtesy and Showtime Cougar stare up the ramp at Ty and then turn to each other. They have a long stare off before Showtime straddles through the ropes and leaves the ring.
