*Show returns from commercial break*
In the backstage area, there is a pulpit set up with a growing crowd in front of it. Next to the podium, Brother David stands at the right while Mother Mavis and Sister Esther stand with their heads bowed and covered in their best Sunday hats. The crowd chatters quiet like in front of the pulpit. A moment passes with light organ music playing in the background. The crowd looks to their left as Father Gerald hogs through them and up the two steps leading to the platform taking his spot at the podium. He waves and the chatters get louder and more excited.
Gerald: Good evening brothers and sisters. It delights Him so that you have joined us. The Good Shepherds are not your typical wrestling stable. We're not your typical prothylatizing "Bible Thumpers". We are not going to talk about how we're gonna revolutionize or take over this company. We won't talk about capturing titles to feed our mortal egos. No sir. No ma'am. Not us.
Gerald slams his hand against the podium to bring the crowd a bit more to life.
Gerald: That is not the mission of The Good Shepherds. Sure, our skills might land us a few victories. It just might bring a title or two around our humble waists. But our message is what drives The Good Shepherds. Our church is founded on the message that He sends us. It is founded on the message that God Himself hath passed along through me, His holy prophet. That is His message of unconditional love. His message of compassion. His message of mercy. His message is our message. And right now, we are focused on establishing the holy of holy. Our flock grows with each set of open ears and open hearts.
Gerald smiles sweetly even with his eyes glowing dark with intensity. He then gasps as if he is overcome with an overwhelming power. Brother David puts a hand on Father Gerald’s shoulder as he steps around to the podium.
David: My fellow congregation, Father Gerald is overcome by the spirit. What he is trying to say is that we could not do this without you. Our followers, our growing flock, we depend on you. But we know that seeing is believing. So we challenge Tad Ezra, the son of the great deceiver, to allow us to showcase how strong of an influence The Good Shepherds can truly be, and only growing from there.
Esther: If Brother David will allow me, we are throwing out an open challenge to any and all teams, because His will is stronger than anything that SCU could throw at us.
Mavis: Our Father, thou art in heaven…
Gerald: Hallowed be thy name! And with his name, we will carry his message to the masses, at any and all costs! It is His will, and we are His hands, His feet, His body, sent to do his work. So anyone who wants to step up and be saved, or stand in our way, we will be around for you to seek counsel, or we can take it up inside of the ring.
Gerald bows his head as the rest of The Good Shepherds follow suit. They take their leave from the pulpit.
A shot inside the boiler room comes into view as Stephen Lance and Aeriel Monroe are standing besides a sitting Powershock. His hands are firmly wrapped around the Underground Championship.
Stephen: You tried Jerry. You tried where men have failed and yet you still failed. The monster is still the Underground Champion. He enjoyed feeling how violent you could go but it just wasn't enough. Now, John Blade will try his might against the 6 foot 8 inches tall weapon of destruction. Powershock will greet you with a giant boot before planting you in the mat.
Stephen chuckles as Aeriel looks up.
Aeriel: I'm only going to say this once. Shannon Middlebrooks had better pull her own weight or she will deal with me. As for Kelli, she had better stay out of Powershock's way if she plans on walking out of this match. My husband will be the dominant force and prove once again that SCU is his WORLD now.
Powershock stands to his feet and laughs. His wife wraps her arm around his arm as the camera fades out.

The curtains open up as Kelli Torres comes out jumping to the beat. 4 trainers from the Real Killas MMA Gym come out behind her. The fans chant yes as Kelli and her trainers walk down the ramp.

Liam: And her partner!!! He is from Boston, MA, he is the Combat Champion… John Martinez-Blaaaaaaaaaaade!!!
John Blade’s music begins to play as he walks out on stage. He talks to the camera man and bounces a little. He holds up his “Never Give Up” logo flag and tosses it to the fans. He salutes and runs straight down towards the ring. He bounces off the ropes side to side and he holds up his “Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect” shirt. He takes off his hat and tosses his shirt to the fans and hands his Chain to the ref to begin to fight.
Liam: And there opponents!!!
Light brown lights suddenly fill the arena as "Indian Summer" starts playing through the speakers. Two women step through the curtain as the crowd doesn't know what to do. The two women stand on the stage as they look side to side.
Liam: Being accompanied by Evelyn Middlebrooks, from Dothan, Alabama, representing The New Foundation.....The Underground Champion… Shannon Middlebrooks!!!
Shannon smirks before marching down the ramp. She slides into the ring, steps to the middle of the ropes and leans over them. She then positions herself in the corner as Evelyn is standing beside her.
Liam: andher partner!!!
The arena lights turn to a dark red tint as smoke fills the stage, ramp and ring. A thunderous gong sounds as a wicked scream is soon heard through the speakers. Sinister laughter follows before "Indestructible" starts playing. A man wearing a dark red mask with a blood red jumpsuit walks out onto the stage followed by two individuals. The masked man stands on the stage as the woman clings to his arm and the man is pointing at the ring.
Liam: From the Depths of hell, accompanied by his mouthpiece Stephen Lance and his valet Aeriel Sizemore.... He is the Underground Champion… please welcome Powershock!!
Powershock throws both arms up and out as pyro goes off. He then sombers down the ramp while keeping his eyes pointed at the ring. A sly smirk appears on his face as he steps up onto the ring apron and steps over the ring ropes.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Chad: John steps… Kelli grabs John and pulls him back to the corner as Powershock rushes to them. Kelli kicks Jhon’s lift leg up in the air as it connects with Powershock’s head as she tried a spear! John then grabs Powwershock and places him on the corner!
Gena: John hits a chop to the chest as Shannon runs over and grabs Kelli but Kelli hits an elbow to the side of Shannon forcing her to let go of Kelli! John hits a chop to the chest but then Powershock turns it around as he grabs and places John on the corner and hits a hard chop of his own.
Chad: Kelli kicks Shannon in the gut then hits a dropkick… no Shannon counters by grabbing on to Kelli's foot then spins her in 180 degrees before letting go and dropping Kelli on to her back!
Gena: Impressive counter by Shannon. Kelli gets up but meets a big boot from Shannon as Powershock goes for another chop but John ducks down and uses his strength to lift Powershock over the ropes and to the apron!!!
Chad: Powershock needs to get in or risk hitting the floor and causing Shannon to go at this in a two on one match! John goes to grab Powershock but Shannon grabs John from behind and hits a German suplex!!!

Chad: Powershock goes through the ropes and to the outside floor!!! Powershock is gone! Shannon is alone to face both Combat Champions!!!
Gena: Powershock looks mad… Well, his always mad but he looks more pissed off than ever as he slides back in the ring!
Chad: He is gone from the ring! Powershock grabs Shannon from behind and turns her around!
Gena: It was a mistake caused by Kelli who looks on as does John Blade. Shannon pushes Powershock to the corner! Powershock runs at Shannon and tackles her to the ground. John walks over but Kelli grabs John and pulls him back. Shannon turns around and charges at Poweshock but he grabs her and throws her over the ropes!!!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Chad: What the hell just happened?
Gena: Looks like Powershock decided for everyone just who will defend the titles! This is why most prefer not to team with this freakin lunatic!!!
Chad: Well, the Combat Champions are safe from defending the belts at the next big show but I know this is not how they wanted it to go down!
Powershcok leaves the ring as he and Shannon start trading blows. Kelli and John leave the ring and walk up the ramp as Casey and his security team run down the ramp to break up the fight between the Underground Champions!!!
As the scene opens, we are treated to the crash of leather on metal as a soccer ball sails wide of an empty goal, crashing off the metal cage surrounding the pitch and rebounding back to the feet of SCU's flavour of the month, Mark "The Dragon" Cross.
He taps the ball forward, swinging his right leg and rifling a shot which this time sails into the top left of the goal, breaking through the net that was held on loosely by grey electrical tape.
The Dragon: I didn't think this cage would still be here…
Mark turned from the Ames Levett Sport Centre to the Cowdrey stand, to the towering floodlights, to the pitch that was now a buzz of activity as crews were hurrying to put everything together for the next leg of the tour.
The Dragon: My Dad took me to my first soccer game when I was 5 years old. It was the first sport I loved, the first thing I remember really passionate about. We'd go out every night after work and kick a ball around until it got dark. I wasn't a good player, no natural ability, One of the last to be chosen when we picked teams at school…
As he talked, he'd walked and retrieved his ball from the net. He hit another shot from the edge of the area. It cannoned off the crossbar at pace, sailing off behind him.
The Dragon: ...but I loved it just the same. Even as I rode my natural talent as a running back all the way to the NFL, I was still in here every week scrapping away…
Again, Mark made his way to retrieve the ball.
The Dragon: In here, I ran harder than anyone else, for longer. I got stuck into challenges. I took on physical battles, got slammed against the sides, picked myself up and went again. When the door shut behind me I learnt to lay it all on the line, every Wednesday night, then every gym session, every game, Superbowl Sunday, and finally...every time I step in a wrestling ring.
Another shot, another swish as it rippled the net, another goal.
The Dragon: The Bad Boys are tough opponents, I learnt long ago to take nothing for granted. They'll be gunning for that title shot, I'd be a fool to think otherwise. Sadly, this isn't their time. Less than 100m away from one of the places where I learned the lessons that made me a champion? No. There's only one winner in this home town.
Mark turned to face the camera, staring down the lens.
The Dragon: Welcome to Canterbury, England. Let's get it.
Hardcore Tornado Tag Team Match - Hardcore Tag Team Number One Contendershi
Fire Dragons (Mark “The Dragon” Cross & Valentina) Vs Bad Boys (Any two members)Liam: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is to determine the number one contenders to the Hardcore Tag Team Championships!!! Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiintroducing first, from right here in Canterbury, England… Crowd:
The arena lights dim as the bassline to "Never Again" begins to rumble around the arena. As the guitar riff hits, so does the lights, revealing Mark "The Dragon" Cross standing, one fist aloft, at the top of the aisle. Receiving recognition from the crowd, he strides purposefully to ringside, taking a moment to survey the scene as he reaches the apron.
Flashes like cameras go across the stage and the audience as the sound accompanies it. “You should see me in a crown” by Billie Eilish begins on the PA as pure beauty walks through the curtains. Her hair blows in the wind as she looks up at the ceiling. She places a hand on her hip as she lets the crowd admire her despite getting a mixed reaction.Liam: Please welcome, on her way to the ring from Merida, Spain. She stands at 5'11" and weighs in at 125 pounds, she is pure perfection... Valentinaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
Once Valentina is officially announced, she turns and begins walking down the ramp. She pushes her hair out of her face as she vogues, showing off her face to it's full capacity. She steps up to the ring steps and looks around with a majestic smile. She takes to the steps as she comes to the apron. She looks around for a moment, stomping her foot in protest as a scantily clad man runs down the ramp and climbs onto the apron. He sits on the middle rope, opening it for her. Valentina then takes off her Loubotins and hands them to the man as she prances barefoot around the ring. She refuses to let go of the spotlight.
The lights in the arena flash around as the fans wave their signs of support for their favorite Honor wrestlers. They scream and cheer as the spotlight waves over them. After a moment of this, the lights die down and "Middle Fingers" by MISSIO begins playing over the loudspeakers. The crowd instantly turns to cheers as the Bad Boys logo is projected onto the stage floor. Once the music picks up, three figures emerge from behind the curtains, wearing white hooded jackets with a red "Bad Boys" logo printed on the back. Shorty looks around the crowd. He gives them an reeling of the fist and a smirk as he looks to the rest of the fans. Dax Beckett flips his hood back and shouts out at the audience as he throws his hands up and down, getting them riled up. Gianni jumps around the stage, rubbing his presence in the faces of the fans before returning to the center. Liam: Introducing first! They are accompanied by “The Italian Stallion” Gianni Di Luca… Making their way to the ring at a combined weight of 395 pound, “Shorty” Devin Tyler and Dax Beckett… Bad Boys!!
Gianni nods to Shorty and then to Dax as they walk down the ramp, taunting the fans and welcoming their hatred. Once they make it to the head of the ring, they walk over to the right side of the ring. Gianni jumps onto the apron as Dax slides to his right, doing a Playgirl style pose laid out across the apron. Shorty slides in under the bottom rope, and flips his hood back as he springs to his feet. He stands on the second rope, reaching over Gianni as he flips off the fans he is facing. Gianni flips his hood down and flexes his muscles, showing off to the fans. He turns around and enters the ring, as Dax springs back up to his feet. They enter the ring and they work the six corners, goading on the hatred. Once they have made it to all six sides, they settle against the far side, speaking to one another before Shorty winds up his arms, getting himself pumped up. Gianni sheds his jacket and shows off his impressive physique, shouting out “You’re welcome!” to the fans. Gianni stands on the apron behind them, giving them a roaring round of applause. Shorty rests his arms against the ropes as he drops his jacket to the ground, kicking it off into the corner. He paces back and forth, getting worked up as Dax walks over to him, bumping fists, and they talk over strategy as they watch the entrance ramp.
Ding! Ding! Ding!Gena: It looks like Valentina and Dax have caught each other’s attention. Considering their past of being good friends, this might be a little awkward. Chad: They meet in the center of the ring with a handshake. And then back up next to their partners. Shorty sizes up Mark Cross, reeling his arm up as he uses his other hand to point to his “Dick Punch City” shirt. Gena: It’s been forever since we’ve been to that city legally. Shorty shakes his head as he walks over to Gianni and points to his fist. Gianni looks confused, but then cracks up laughing as he nods his head. He pulls off a sheet from our announcers table. Chad: The red foam fist! On sale at our merchandise table, or online at scwrestling.net. Gianni presents it to Shorty through the ropes, and Shorty slides it on his arm. Cross almost doesn’t know how to react to this. Gena: Valentina whispers something to him, and he nods his head. Dax slowly begins inching his way toward Val and Mark. When they get back into fighting position, Dax jogs backward. Just in time for Shorty to ram his fist into Mark Cross’s crotch! Crowd:
DICK PUNCH CITY! *Clap* DICK PUNCH CITY! *Clap* DICK PUNCH CITY! *Clap* DICK PUNCH CITY! *Clap*Chad: Cross drops to the ground, but Valentina kicks a knee up to the side of Shorty’s head, following it up with the second knee. Dax charges forward, and Valentina ducks a Clothesline. She pulls Shorty’s foam fist from his arm and tosses it to Cross. Gena: He slips it on, but he’s still feeling the pain. As Dax comes at him, he uses everything he has to ram it right into Dax’s crotch! Crowd:
DICK PUNCH CITY! *Clap* DICK PUNCH CITY! *Clap* DICK PUNCH CITY! *Clap* DICK PUNCH CITY! *Clap*Chad: Mark and Dax are down on the mat, holding onto their family jewels. Shorty picks Valentina up over his shoulders and carries her around as he chuckles at how light she is. But then, she rolls back into a Small Package pin!
Thr…Gena: Dax gives them a nudge, and Valentina rolls onto her shoulders as Shorty holds on tightly for the pin!
Thr…Chad: Mark Cross gets to his feet and nudges them back the opposite way, putting Valentina back into pinning position.
Thr…Gena: Mark wraps his arms around Shorty’s neck, pulling him backward into a Chokehold as Dax holds onto Valentina’s legs, flipping over into a Bridging Pin!
Two!Chad: Cross picks Shorty up and drops him right on Dax’s stomach, knocking the air out of his lungs! Valentina rolls out from under them, feeling a little bit of the pressure from the fall. She walks it off as Cross nods to her. Gena: Shorty starts to crawl a bit, as does Dax. On their hands and knees, they receive stereo Shining Wizard’s! They drop down on top of their opponents for the pin.
YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!Chad: Cross gets up and he covers his mouth as he waits for Dax to get back to his feet. As Dax does, he goes for a Spear, but Dax moves as Cross goes right for Valentina! Gena: Valentina falls back into a Death Drop pose as Cross flips into the ropes, catching himself as he sits and stares at Dax, tapping the top rope, waiting. Chad: Dax flies forward, but Valentina hits a Drop Toe Hold, sending Dax’s head right at Mark’s crotch, causing the fans to gasp. Gena: But Cross uses the ropes to hit a Pele Kick to Dax’s chin! The crowd is on fire. Valentina and Cross high five each other. Shorty rushes up behind, knocking Valentina through the ropes. Chad: Cross turns around just in time to dodge a Dick Punch from Shorty. He sets up and executes... Erm...that move he does!" (Tiger Driver '91)!!! He hooks the leg!
Two!Gena: Dax stands up to break up the pin, but Valentina trips him up and pulls him toward the ropes, and…
Ding! Ding! Ding!Liam: Here are your winners and Number One Contenders to the Hardcore Tag Team Championships… Mark “The Dragon” Cross and Valentina… The Fire Dragons!!!
The crowd is almost deafening for Mark Cross as he relishes in the praise from his hometown. Valentina comes inside of the ring and hugs onto Cross, jumping up and down. Dax looks upset as he pulls Shorty toward the ropes. He shakes his head as Shorty holds onto his own head. Gianni doesn’t seem happy as he walks off ahead of Dax and Shorty. “Never Again” plays over the speakers as the fans continue to rain down cheers for Mark, and confetti rains down almost as heavily.
The cameras come into focus and as it does we are treated to the image of a blonde standing in front of the camera. That blonde is none other than the nurse Cindy Warren. She is all smiles as she looks deeply into the lens of the camera and begins to speak.Cindy: Hi everyone my name is Cindy and I know I haven’t really amounted to anything in SCU but I am here to let you know that I vow on everything that I will…
Before she can say anything she is immediately pummeled by the likes of two figures. Those figures are none other than Jennifer and Kimberly Williams. They attack her as they beat on her from behind . Cindy clutches at her chest in pain as they left her up and that is when we can see the one and only Brittany Williams. She grins as she looks right at her and drives a vicious super kick right against her face. It connects on impact and the two women lift Cindy up and deliver a vicious powerbomb through a table. Cindy remains motionless against a table as we can hear the sound of clapping in the background. That clapping seems to be coming from none other than “the Princess Prodigy” Brittany Williams. Brittany smiles as she looks down at cindy as she grins clad in her long robe with her Tiara. Her father Todd Williams stands next to her as she begins to speak.Brittany: I do believe that is the very last time that you will ever see that blonde bimbo in this company. It feels so good to be in jolly ole England and what you are seeing right now is not a mistake. I am the Princess Prodigy Brittany Williams and I am perhaps the biggest thing to have ever stepped foot in this company. You see for the past few months you have seen me competing in SCW and it felt really good to go to that company and win the Blast From The Past tournament. I told everyone that I was among the best of the best. That I would be the future of this business and yet nobody believed me. Now look at me. I won the tournament and I have already accomplished so much at the age of 18. Can it get any better than this?!
Todd nods his head in agreement as he begins to speak.Todd: From the bottom of my heart I want to say sorry to my best friend Teddy. Your sister in law Cindy happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time so she had to be made an example of. What you see before you is four Williams. My daughter, my wife, my sister, and of course myself. Who are we exactly?!
Brittany nods her head as she continues to speak.Brittany: We are the Williams Dynasty and we have officially made our arrival right here in Sin City Underground. This is my stable and it is a stable that has been birthed in so many different wrestling companies. It has had so many different combinations and this combination will be it’s most deadliest because I am happy to stand at the helm. Nobody will overrule my precious collective of people and I will stand tall among everybody. This is going to be my playground and these individuals behind me have but one job. To put me over and to do everything in their power to protect me. Nobody shall dare get in the way of the princess. I should be praised and you shall all bow before me. Every princess deserves her loyal subjects and if you don’t feel like bowing.
Kimberly and Jenny smile as wide as they possibly can as they speak some more.Kimberly: We shall make you bow! My husband may have been wasting his time on the SCW roster but down here this territory is ours for the taking and we will do everything in our power to make this company all about us. Who can be better than four individuals who are looking to take this company by storm. Jenny: My niece and brother have made their impact by joining this company tonight and I assure you that Brittany definitely will not be a let down. She has only lost one singles match while being in SCw and just look at her. She is practically unstoppable. It just doesn’t get any better than it does with her. Brittany: Cheers and these idiotic people in England should be cheering because I am giving them royalty that they should be proud of! I am wrestling royalty and I plan to do something very unprecedented. Not only will I rise to the top of this company but because of my status as the BFTP winner I plan to win the SCW bombshell Championship and takeover this company at the same time. That’s me in two companies doing what I do best. I know Alicia can be “up there” in that other company probably going to talk some shit about me and my mother but if she has something to say she can say it to my face. I already beat her ass and took her out of the BFTP and just like I should have done with the Honor title I plan to fully take it away from her. Granted she get past my mom, and my stepmom which I doubt she can do. Todd: That’s my girl you see I can’t wait to mix with the best of them in this company. I plan to rise to the top and maybe bone all of the WHITE WOMEN in this company. Kimberly: Hey there is only one you need to have your eye on! Todd: Babe you know I am just kidding right?! The fact is we all are going to take over this company. One week at a time one dumb bitch and of course asshole at a time. We are the limelight and nobody will take our shine. PIZZOW!!!!!!!!
With that the four members of the Williams family all grin as we fade to elsewhere.
& Vs & Main Event
Scaffold Weapons Match - Hardcore Tag Team Championships
Kawaii Dragons (Winter Elemental & Tatsu Ikeda) Vs The New Foundation (Ivory Sullivan & Shelby HoltLiam: The following contest is scheduled to be a Scaffold Weapons Match and is for the Hardcore Tag Team Championships!!!
The crowd begins booing as soon as a picture of a dragon appears on the Honor Tron. “Gimme Chocolate” by Babymetal begins playing, Winter Elemental and Tatsu Ikeda come out from behind the curtains. They laugh together as they hold onto each other’s hands, skipping down the aisle, pointing and laughing at fans as they pass.Liam: On their way to the ring, they are Winter Elemental and Tatsu Ikeda..., the Kawaii Dragons!!!
The crowd continues to boo them more as Winter and Tatsu make it to the bottom of the ramp. Tatsu and Winter slide in the ring. They prance around with the belts, rubbing them, and their cuteness in the faces of the fans. They settle into their corner, laughing and joking together as they hand their belts over to the referee and wait for their opponents.Liam: Aaaaaand their opponents, from Bell, FL they are Ivory Sullivan and Shelby Holt… The Hardcore Tag Team Champions, they are The NEW FOUNDATIOOOOOOOON!!!
"Into The Rush" starts blaring as Shelby and Ivory coming bouncing out from behind the curtain. They greet the fans before sprinting down the ramp and getting ready for the match.
Ding! Ding! Ding!Gena: The scaffold isn’t even raised five feet off the ground and both teams are already going at it! Of course Kawaii Dragons have unchained the kendo sticks, and the New Foundation has nabbed a steel chair and the chain that goes with it. Chad: Only because there are no tables up there. Tatsu and Winter swing their kendo sticks wildly, but Shelby blocks the shots with a chair as Ivory whips the chain from behind Shelby, deflecting the shots. Gena: Shelby is able to block every shot until Tatsu kicks the chair from Shelby’s hands. Both Kawaii Dragons smirk as they close in, steadying themselves on the scaffold as they extend their kendo sticks in a mocking tone. Chad: They approach slowly, causing Shelby to back up into Ivory. Ivory swings the chain at Tatsu, but Winter protects Tatsu with the kendo stick. Tatsu tries to hit shots on Ivory, but Ivory blocks each shot. Gena: Ivory swings the chain, wrapping it around Winter’s kendo stick. She grabs her chain and kicks Tatsu hard in the stomach, pushing Winter back in the process, snapping the kendo stick in half! Chad: Winter looks piiiiiiiisssssssssssed! She weaves around Tatsu, who is holding her stomach. She swings the two halves of the Kendo stick at Ivory, but Ivory blocks them at first. However, eventually, she can’t block them all. Gena: Ivory catches a shot to the face! Then another! Winter is screeching angrily as she continues to nail Ivory, backing her into Shelby. Winter grabs Ivory by the hair and whips her off of the scaffolding! Chad: But Ivory hangs on, and Winter begins stomping at Ivory’s fingers. Shelby walks up behind Winter and shoves her clean off of the scaffolding now! But Winter grabs onto Ivory’s ankles! Gena: The Hardcore Tag Team Champions AND the challengers are in trouble right now, as Ivory’s fingers are slipping. Winter climbs up Ivory, but Ivory is ramming her elbow back into Winter’s head. Chad: Winter grabs onto the scaffolding and begins biting at Ivory’s fingers, and Ivory slips off! Her fingers can’t hold on any longer! Gena: She grabs onto Winter and stops herself from falling off completely. Shelby and Tatsu stare back and forth from the situation to each other. They are hesitant to move,, despite their obvious temptation. Chad: Tatsu jumps the gun and swings her kendo stick at Shelby, striking her until she stumbles backward into the chains holding scaffolding up! She is freaking relentless! Shelby swings around the backside of the chains. Gena: She climbs it slightly, taking the shots. She’s clearly up to something. Tatsu jabs the stick into Shelby’s side until Shelby rips it free and drops it to the flooring below. Shelby then wraps her legs around Tatsu, pulling her right into the chain! *CLUNNNNNK!*Chad: And a sickening thud! Tatsu stumbles back and Shelby swings forward, kicking Tatsu in the chest. Tatsu nearly falls off, but she grounds her weight, falling to the scaffolding. Shelby stomps away at Tatsu. Gena: Tatsu sweeps Shelby’s legs out from under her, and she stumbles off of the scaffolding! She grabs onto Winter as well, steadying herself. Winter and Ivory have amazing upper body strength, but Shelby is showing off some of her own. Chad: Tatsu begins practically tap dancing along Shelby’s fingers and Ivory’s as well. Winter chuckles despite her current situation. Shelby reaches up and grabs onto Tatsu’s ankle and rips her from off of the scaffolding! Gena: No fucking way! They are all hanging from the scaffolding, and from each other. They are clawing their way up each other’s backs like rats on a sinking ship! And the titles are the sinking ship right now. Chad: Shelby is almost back up on the scaffolding, but Winter pulls her back down. Then Tatsu almost gets back up, but Ivory pulls her off by the ankle. Tatsu is nearly falling, but Winter grabs onto her ankle and she’s hanging on with everything she’s got! Gena: Tatsu hangs there, pouting in mid air, despite being a good 10 feet off of the ground, hanging upside down! Chad: Shelby and Ivory begin clubbing at Winter until Winter nearly falls off. She helps swing Tatsu up, and both ladies climb on the backs of The New Foundation and gnaw at their backs! After the screams go on for a moment… Gena: Ivory and Shelby let go, and all four competitors fall to the ground below, rolling around in a mangled mess of bodies!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
The crowd is silent, unsure of what is happening at the moment. Referee Jade Pham inspects the situation for a moment. She bites at her bottom lip before calling for assistance. The screen replays the fall several times as Ryan Richards and Dylan Roberts come down. The medical team rushes down to inspect both teams as Jade debates with Ryan Richards. After this goes on for a second, and the medical team is able to ensure that both teams are okay and back on their feet, Jade speaks into her headset. The Kawaii Dragons start to take the belts from Jade, but The New Foundation jerks them back a few inches. Neither team is willing to let go. Liam: After reviewing the footage and consulting with other officials, referee Jade Pham has made a decision regarding the match…
The crowd cheers slightly, but they are on the edge of their seats, waiting for the answer.Liam: Both teams let go of the scaffolding and began their descent at the same exact time. Therefore, this match has been deemed a tie! Chad: WHAT?!?! Liam: Therefore… STILL your Hardcore Tag Team Champions… The New FOUNDATIOOOOOOOOOONNNNN!!!
The crowd cheers as Shelby and Ivory rip the belts back from a shocked Tatsu and Winter. Once the decision settles in, Tatsu and Winter begin screaming uncontrollably, causing Ivory and Shelby to laugh and flaunt their belts as they celebrate back up toward the steps leading to the stage. They hold their belts up high as Tatsu and Winter argue with Jade Pham, and the show goes off the air.
All of this and oh so much more as we bring you SCU Underground, Episode 22, live from Canterbury, England! ***Card subject to change.
