* PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * * PYRO * The building is sold out in the SAP Center in San Jose, California. Thousands of fans have been packed into the arena for what promises to be a night of gigantic celebration. Our commentary team for tonight is the trio of Sebastian Copeland, Cat Connor and Jack Cohen. All three are dressed up in their best formal attire as the camera pans through the crowd, showing various signs supporting wrestler, until we come to a stop at the announce desk. Copeland: Hello and welcome to what is surely going to be one of the biggest nights in WZCW history. It is the ten-year anniversary of the organization and we are live from the arena where the very first Meltdown down took place. Im Sebastian Copeland and Im joined by my wonderful broadcast partners, Jack Cohen and Cat Connor. Cohen: A huge night indeed, Seabass! Weve got the return of King for a Day tonight when six competitors step into the Elimination Chamber. Also, weve got Hall of Famer versus Hall of Famer when Steamboat Ricky goes one-on-one against Big Will. We havent seen both of them for years so its going to be a real treat for some of the newer fans of WZCW. Connor: And in the main event we will see Titus Avison defend the Eurasian Championship against Tyrone Blades. Thats a dream match which will happen for the very first time tonight. Can Titus retain his title again, extending his reign which is already very impressive against the greatest superstar to ever compete in WZCW? The announcers are cut off unexpectedly as the titantron lights up and music begins playing throughout the arena. The boos in the arena are extremely loud as Titus Avison struts onto the stage with the Eurasian Championship around his waist. A large smirk is on his face as he paces back and forth for a moment, slapping at the gold around his waist before walking down the entrance ramp. He shouts back at some of the fans who taunt him, reminding them that he has held the title for well over six hundred days up until this point. Copeland: What is he doing out here? Cohen: Can you think of a better way to start the ten-year anniversary show than with the greatest champion in WZCW history? Titus takes the centre of the ring, a microphone in his hand and waits until his music has faded out. He soaks in all the boos from the audience before speaking into the microphone. Titus: Ten years wow. For ten years WZCW has been the very peak of professional wrestling and entertainment. WZCW has entertained millions around the world, given people chances to change their lives, created a passionate audience and put on amazing events across the globe. From the very first Meltdown which took place in this very building, from all four corners of the world until we found ourselves right back here on this night of celebration. WZCW has remained the place to be. A small pause by Titus as he looks around the arena. The fans offer a faint cheer from the kind words so far. Titus: And its all because of me! For the past decade, I havent just been part of WZCW, I am Mr. WZCW. I have wrestled in more big matches than anybody else on the roster. I have seen this company at the lowest low and I have put it on my freakin back to the point where we are a global company. Tonight, you will see countless superstars return tonight but the truth is that they wouldnt have a place to return to if not for what I did in the early years of WZCW. The crowd boos as Titus unclips the Eurasian Championship and raises it into the air. Titus: I am Mr. WZCW, this night is about me! I carry Meltdown to this very day as the fixture of that show. The main event, week in and week out, while the so called World Champion finds himself on Ascension. I am the guy they put as the face of the flagship show, the A Show and its that because I say so! Make no mistake, without me there is no WZCW. I am the face of this brand, the face of the company, the face of professional wrestling I am because I say I damn well am! Copeland: Who's music is that? I haven't heard it-Oh, wait just a minute now, Mr. WZCW. I think somebody would have to disagree with that statement and he is coming out right now. Connor: Matt Tastic is just as much Mr. WZCW as Titus has ever been. Especially after the way Titus has acted these past two years, I think he gave that honour up long ago. Cohen: You both sound pathetic! Titus is Mr. WZCW and dont you forget it. A big cheer from the crowd however Titus looks very irritated, turning towards the stage where Matt Tastic emerges. Matt walks down the aisle slowly hands in pocket, a new look with a nothing a hoodie over his head and for old times sake, his Baez mask. He stops midway looking at his surrounds before getting on the apron and sitting on the top turnbuckle. He takes his mask off and tilts his head a little before pulling a microphone out from behind his back. Titus: What do you want? You cant come out here and ruin my moment. Tastic: .........does everything have to be about you, Titus? We get it. Youre the longest reigning Eurasian Champion of all time. If you're not here to defend it, shut the hell up, then. A huge cheer from the audience and they jump onto their feet. Titus begins shaking his head and laughs. Titus: I'm sorry, but who let the Edgelord out? Nice try, Tastic. No, tonight you dont get the honour of stepping into this ring with a chance at my title. I decide when I defend it and tonight Ill be competing in the main event like I also do. Ill be headlining this show and on ESPN later tonight after I retain it yet again! I dont bother with the likes of you. Washed up, yesterdays news and a fraction of the man who once challenged me many years ago. Tastic: You're not wrong. I've f*cked up a lot recently. But as far as washed up is concerned, remember that time you failed so much, you repeatedly tried to win the Mayhem title and lost? I mean, it was so sad, they retired the title for years. It comes around Titus. Titus: You know damn well I never concerned myself with the Mayhem division. Why waste my time doing backyard wrestling style matches on the undercard when I can perform the most pure style of wrestling on the biggest stage? Tastic: Right Now it's about "pure" wrestling since you failed at "garbage" wrestling. Hell, you failed at Tag Team wrestling too, didn't you? How many Tag Team Championships do you have? Surely, Mr. WZCW would have been a tag champion. Titus scoffs, flicking his hair back as he raises his voice. Titus: I dont need a partner to gain championship gold! Why even bother when I could claim the World Championship, twice! Tastic: Been there. Done that and my first reign is longer than both of yours combined. Titus, it seems that for all your bragging, you've just clutched to two or three accomplishments. I, on the other hand, have left my blood, sweat and tears inside this ring across every division in company has to offer. Literally. It pisses me off, but I admit it. I've cried. I got thrown off this turnbuckle to that hard floor, flat on my back, the night I thought I'd finally win that title you hold there. The crowd cheers as Tastic jumps off the turnbuckle and approaches Titus. Tastic: You arent Mr. WZCW. I am! I have won every title in this company and some multiple times over. I have won Lethal Lottery and the Gold Rush Tournament. I have done it all, Titus. For all your talk of greatness, and make no mistake about it, you are great, but you dont measure up against me! I am a Grand Slam Champion, one of only two, and you can never achieve that.I may be falling short these days but my shadow still towers over you. Titus: This is my night, Tastic! Tastic: SHUT THE HELL UP! IT'S THEIR'S AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED! Once more, the crowd cheers as Tastic points to the audience. Titus: Who are you to deny me? You dont measure up to me. You were the one chasing me all those years ago. You look up to me, kid! I am the greatest superstar of all time! Connor: Oh my, here we go. Copeland: Did someone say greatest superstar of all time? The camera pans around the arena until it finds Tyrone Blades emerging from the audience. He jumps over the barricade and enters the ring; Titus is furious and Tastic looks slightly amused as he takes his place back on the turnbuckle. Blades: Before you go any further let me make his crystal clear to the both of you. I dont care how long youve held the Eurasian Championship or if youre a Grand Slam Champion. At the end of the day, when you mention who is the greatest of all time, you are talking about me! Many in the crowd nod their heads and cheer as Blades gets even closer to Titus. Blades: If you want a little preview, if you dont how good I am, then just say my name. Go on, Titus. Give me an excuse to whoop your punk ass right here, right now and lets get this party started. Titus: Im not some untrained rookie who will fall for your tricks, Blades. We will wrestle on my time. I dont bend to your will like the rest of these sheep. Tonight, they will see that the myth of Tyrone Blades cannot defeat the legend of Titus Avison! Blades: You say youre not a sheep but youre even stupider than most. This whole thing is just to distract me from my real goal. Its all a ploy by Mr. Banks to slow down the destruction of Vis Imperium. You are nothing but a pawn in his game and youve fallen right into his trap. Youre a puppet, Titus. Tonight, Ill take the Eurasian Championship from you and then its right back on the road as I bring down that entitled piece of shit. Youre nothing but a pitstop in my journey and you dont even realise it. Tastic: If you could get a few shots on Mark Keaton for me, I appreciate that. By the way, remember that cage match I beat you in to retain my World title? Where I blew you a kiss as I left? Good times. Blades looks over to the turnbuckle and stares at Matt Tastic for a moment. He then bumps past Titus Avison and goes to exit the ring, Titus grabs his arm and pulls him back. Titus: Well see who is clueless later tonight, Blades. Tastic jumps off the turnbuckle and approaches both men, the crowd stands and cheers as Matt Tastic, Tyrone Blades and Titus Avison stare each other down in the centre of the ring. Copeland: What a way to kick off the show. Tastic, Blades and Avison all in the same ring at the same time. You could feel the tension inside that ring between three historic figures in WZCW history. Cohen: I didnt think the ring was big enough for all that ego. Connor: Speaking of historic figures, coming up next weve got the return of two Hall of Famers. Steamboat Ricky goes up against Big Will, live on the anniversary show!
