The camera moves to the backstage area. After a second of moving around, the camera focuses in on none other than Daxton Oliver Beckett himself. The crowd cheers very loudly. Dax smiles and nods his head as the camera drinks in his bare chest, tattoos and hair covering it. He strokes his epic beard before clasping his hands together.
Dax: Guess who’s back, boys n’ girls? It’s me, it’s me, it’s that D-A-X O. B.! The last Bad Boy standing. People was worried after my last tweet about being disappointed with the roster cuts. I can’t lie. I was disappointed. All my boys got the chop, except GDL. I had a couple projects to finish up, otherwise I woulda been around much sooner.
Dax looks apologetically at the camera. He lets his hands go, and they settle into his pockets as he straightens his back.
Dax: Not that there was ever any doubt, but I’m back, and I’m badder than ever. I’m ready to get inside of that ring and show everyone that this West Coast Wonder still got it.
Dax takes a step closer to the camera.
Dax: I know I got some unfinished business with a lot of people, but I want to put out a challenge to evvv…
Dax stops in his tracks and looks around the room as he hears something. His glare stops on someone and his nostrils flare to show his apprehension, and his eyes narrow as Eric Weaver steps into view. Weaver looks at Dax with disgust written all over his place.
Eric: Hold the fuck up. No, I don’t believe what I’m seeing right now.
Dax: In the flesh, baby bear.
Eric stops and gives Dax an intense glare of his own.
Eric: It’s not even about you! No, I take that back. It’s all about you. You disappear into oblivion after I put you on the shelf. You stay gone for what seems like forever. Then you march your hairy ass back in here and they just give you a microphone?
Eric looks at Dax as if this makes no sense to him. Dax shrugs his shoulders and nods his head.
Eric: I’m the one who has been around, and I just went through some bullshit that I’ve got a lot to say about it. That asshole who took the title from me, and the asshole who stood back and laughed about it like it was the biggest joke in the company, that I’M the biggest joke in the company.
Dax again shrugs his shoulders.
Dax: You ain’t done nothing to prove otherwise. You punched my nuts off and took my belt from me, then you get mad when someone fucks you out of it?
Eric: Why aren’t you stupid anymore? All while sounding like a complete idiot. I at least went face to face with you when I punched your dick. I wasn’t hiding behind a mask. But the point is that you have the gall to come back here and act like I don’t exist, while the higher ups are doing the same thing? You want to challenge someone next week? I’ll be your guy. No dick punching necessary.
Dax goes to talk, but he stops himself. He strokes his beard and thinks for a second, which only raises the anger in Eric Weaver’s demeanor, but before he can speak, Dax holds up a finger.
Dax: Nah, bruh. I think I got something. I mean, I’ll fight in the ring with you next week, either way, but I got an idea. Why don’t you and me team up to take on Javier Gonzalez and Tim Staggs?
Eric: Are you fucking nuts? I’ve already been fucked around by all of you Bad Boys, and I’m not going to…
Dax: Look, before you say no to me, hear me out. Do you really hate me more than you hate the guy that screwed you out of your title while pretending to be your best buddy? Do you really hate me more than you hate the guy that stood back and watched it happen, and then laughed about it, making you into a joke?
Eric goes to speak, but he stops and thinks about it for a second.
Dax: I’m gonna level with you. You and me ain’t best friends, and I don’t think we ever will be. But one thing is for sure. I know I don’t hate you nearly as much as I hate Tim, because we go way back. All that mess with you being a pawn in his silly game, I feel sorry for you.
Dax nods his head.
Dax: Then prove to me that you can get over that hot head of yours and do what you gotta do to move past that mess. That’s what I’m trying to do.
Eric thinks about it for a second. He then begins to nod his head. Dax extends his hand but Eric pulls Dax in closer.
Eric: If you decide to screw me over like all your former friends did, then I’ll make sure that you regret it.
Dax nods his head and gives Eric’s hand a solid shake, causing the fans to cheer loudly.
Marissa Henry is standing with the remaining members of Team Canada.
Marissa: Please welcome the SCU hardcore tag team champions, Team Canada.
Stewart, Earl, and Gail come into frame.
Marissa: Tonight, all members of Team Canada defend their titles against members of Nobility.
Earl: Right you Marissa, and tonight, My wife will defend her title against Chanelle, and of course we’ll successfully defend these hardcore tag titles.
Stewart: Marissa, I honestly don’t get it, Tad Ezra seems determined to put all the SCU gold on Nobility, and whatever plan he has up his sleeve will fail miserably here tonight, just like nobility.
Gail: Why don’t people still not fully understand that Team Canada is the very best SCU has, tonight will be a statement of that fact, plain and simple.
Earl: She’s not just a pretty face Marissa, she knows what she is talking about, we hate that we have to keep proving to everyone in SCU that we are the very best this industry has to offer, maybe after we dispose of the Nobility once and for all everyone will finally understand that what we say isn’t boasting it the truth.
Stewart: it been a pleasure Marissa, but we’ve got titles to retain.
As they leave Gail gives Marissa the once over then walks off.
Tables Match - Hardcore Tag Team Championships
Nobility Vs Team Canada (Earl Lockyer and Stewart Mason)
Liam: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a Tables Match for the Hardcore Tag Team Championships!
The fans begin to boo loudly as "Superficial" by Heidi Montag hits over the public address system
It aint that easy, it aint that easy
it aint that easy, but it aint so hard
It aint that easy, it aint that easy
it aint that easy, but it aint so hard
As the lights dim and flash gold all over the arena, a lone spotlight forms at the entrance ramp as out from the back first steps Leroy with a stern look on his face. After a few moments, Todd walks out from behind him, looking nervous. As he claps within a few seconds in an arrogant and exaggerated fashion, Angel Kash herself walks out as the fans boo loudly.
Liam: And next, they are the Double Down Tag Team Champion… “The Trillion Dollar Princess”... Angel Kash!!! And Melissa Ruin… They are Nobility!!!!
Hoppin' out the maserati
All I see is paparazzi
Snapping pictures for the
Front cover of a magazine
So I pose in everything I wear
Love to make the people stare
Always center of attention
Lookin' so bootylicious
Angel blows an arrogant kiss to the fans before doing a series of arrogant poses at the top of the ramp. She then says something to Todd and Leroy as they first go ahead, before the arrogant rich blonde bombshell does an arrogant supermodel-like strut down to the ring, taunting the fans as she walks by them, before rudely sticking out her hand, and flipping her hair arrogantly as she brushes past the fans, not letting them even come close to touching her. She makes her way up the ring steps with Leroy, holding her hand from the outside, as Todd is standing in front of her on the ring apron. Angel then points down as he holds the ropes for her; she enters and poses in the center of the ring as the fans boo loudly. After that, she lays on the top turnbuckle nonchalantly taunting the fans as Todd hands her a mirror and she admires her beauty.
they represent Team Canada, they are your Hardcore Tag Team Champions… Stewart Mason and Earl Lockyer!!!
Earl and Stewart step on the stage accompanied by Gail, Dahlia and Sarah, they walk to the ring and enter, a spotlight shines on the rings, Dahlia and Sarah wrap their arms around Earl's neck and he gives the crowd a smile as Gail wraps an arm around Stewart and they go to the ring.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Chad: Oh what the hell is this? The security team comes out and escorts Gail, Sarah, and Dahlia to the back, and they are not happy about it.
Gena: Kittie is not being gentle with them, even while pushing all three. However, that big seven foot monster behind her probably gives them some cause to be cautious.
Chad: Melissa and Angel wave bye to them, trying their best to look sad. Earl and Stewart are arguing with the referee over the call, trying to state what bullshit this is, and I have to agree.
Gena: You aren’t wrong, Chad. Melissa sneaks to the outside of the ring while Stewart and Earl are distracted, and she slides a table inside of the ring. Her and Angel try to quietly set the table up.
Chad: One set of legs goes up, and creaks, causing Earl to turn around on the offense. He rushes at them, and they immediately roll outside of the ring, stepping back.
Gena: This isn’t even going to be a match, but a cat and mouse game. Stewart slides outside of the ring and Angel orders him back. She shakes her head as she comes toward the timekeeper’s table.
Chad: Melissa is right there too, and their hands are behind their backs. They fumble around as Stewart comes close to them. He gets bashed in the head with the Double Down titles!
Gena: Stewart goes down like a sack of potatoes. The referee scolds them, but there’s not shit can be done about that in a hardcore match like a tables match.
Chad: Earl stops in his tracks as he eyes the situation. Angel and Melissa wield their belts as they step closer to Earl, taunting him to come toward them. Melissa stays on guard with the belt while Angel begins setting up one of the tables.
Gena: Angel grabs Stewart and begins groaning and flinging her hands around. She drags him over to the table and struggles to try to get him on top of it.
Chad: Angel is really trying her best. She gets one half on top of the table as Stewart begins struggling against her efforts. She immediately drops him and stumbles backward.
Gena: We’re seeing Team Canada’s cheer section disappear behind the curtains, and no sooner than Dahlia’s ass disappears from sight, Chanelle Martinez-Blade rushes from the crowd and jumps the barricade!
Chad: Chanelle has a chair in her hands as she swings it right at Earl’s back! He stumbles forward and turns around to see the source. Chanelle talks trash as Earl goes to grab her.
Gena: She moves out of the way and smacks him once more with the chair. This had to be a set up for Team Canada, and for Nobility to win both sets of tag titles!
Chad: Chanelle hits Earl over the top of the head and he goes down to the ground. She drags Earl over toward the table and shouts for the rest of Nobility to help her.
Gena: She wraps an arm around Earl’s neck, and Melissa does the same. They move closer to the table now and they struggle for a Double Vertical Suplex!
Chad: Angel gives Earl’s feet a boost and he hangs in mid air for a second before we see new champions! This is disgusting! Favoritism at it’s finest.
Gena: Melissa and Chanelle drops Earl at the table… BUT STEWART MOVES IT OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!!!
Crowd: *MEGA POP!*
Chad: Stewart grabs Chanelle from behind and puts her right through a table! She’s not legal, but it sure does even the playing field again!
Gena: Stewart sets up a table as Angel and Melissa look stunned. Earl gets up without them noticing, and he sets up another table. Melissa gets dragged by her hair onto the table.
Chad: Stewart stands up and hooks his arm around Melissa’s head. Angel doesn’t see Earl until he spins her around and lifts her up into the E.L 91 ( Michinoku Driver 2) as Earl gets Melissa into the Paid In Full (Implant DDT), landing both through the tables!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Liam: Here are your winners and STILL Hardcore Tag Team Champions… Earl Lockyer and Stewart Mason… Team Canadaaaaaaaaa!!!
Earl and Stewart instantly stand up proud, though they are not worse for the wear after several steel and gold shots to the head. They take their belts from the referee and then raise them up into the air. Before their music can hit, the crowd’s attention is drawn to the stage as Henry Losak stands in front of Lord Raab and Samuel McPherson. They stare down at the ring, nothing happens at first aside from a staredown that seems to last forever. Henry drops his arms and The Monstimals immediately storm down toward the ring. Fight or flight sinks in, and realizing they have taken a few shots to the head, Earl and Stewart jump the barricade, which slowly leads to a chase through the crowd, and the audience is going nuts!
She glances around and then nods knowingly.
Halo: Yeah, no hype man today, just me and my title belt that says I’m the best right now.
She holds up her SCU Women’s Underground Championship for the world to see.
Halo: I been asked to talk to y’all about that main event tonight where someone had the balls to look at Shannon Middlebrooks and call her old news at 25…
She lowers her championship and shakes her head in disgust.
Halo: Let’s just call this what it is, it’s a match of four champions, two present, two who want to come back. On paper, this is a great match because y’all got a big violent monster who don’t like speed burners versus a guy who should be able to run circles around Powershock’s big ass in Javi Gonzalez and then you got me and Shannon Middlebrooks, which means this should be the country bitch brawl the woodshed done been dyin’ to see for a damn coon’s age!
Javier: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa… Let me get this straight.
Javier Gonzalez comes out of practically nowhere with his Underground Championship around his fit waist. He is shaking his head as he looks at Halo with disbelief.
Javier: We are fighting this puta and that pendejo and you want to say that it's a match that everyone is dying to see? Mami, you are right, but only because we are in it.
Javi looks at Halo with a showing of just enough respect to be able to get through their match while coinciding.
Javier: Nothing screams past their prime than this ugly motherfucker running around with his cut up face hidden away, and some chick who got her ass kicked by Kelli Torres and then all but vanished. Who wants to see those two?
The crowd cheers loudly and Javi's expression changes from facetious to outright angry.
Javier: I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to you…
Javi looks right at Halo.
Halo: So y’all saying we should just…
She pauses and then shrugs.
Halo: ¿Dar a estos pinche culeros una zapatería?
Javier: Exactamente lo que pensaba Muéstrales cómo se ve realmente un campeón. Right now people think we are just placeholder champions when you and me both know that's not true. I'm going on to face what ever unlucky puta they are willing to put in front of me. And you're gonna beat the sexy right off Veronica Taylor, leaving her to realize exactly what she is; a pretty face who don't know fuck all about the inside of a wrestling ring.
Javi nods at Halo to make sure that she fully understands how much the title means to him, and how serious he is about keeping it. That single glimpse beyond his arrogance is read as what he truly wants, a successful, honorable defense, by any means necessary.
Halo: Then I spose we need to show the world what happens when you take perros out behind the woodshed…
Javier: Then I guess we should do just that, chica. No fuck ups, no excuses. Just the misguided opinions of the fans to tear apart and replace with a new standard. Our standard.
Even more surprising to everyone, Javi extends his hand as if signing a deal with the devil himself. The air around him almost vibrates with his determination. Halo accepts the hand and shakes it.
Halo: Vamos… Papi.
Javi takes the hand and gives a gentlemanly kiss to it before nodding and the two walk toward the curtains.
Tag Team Match - Underground Championships
Shannon Middlebrooks & Powershock Vs Halo Williams & Javier Gonzalez
Liam: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for both Underground Championships! One pin or submission for the team secures both championships.
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....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.
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: And his partner, being accompanied by Evelyn Middlebrooks, from Dothan, Alabama, representing The New Foundation.....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: And their opponents… On her way next, from Hollywood Hills, CA, standing at 5’10” and weighing in at 144lb, she is your Underground Champion… Halo Williaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaams!!!
Life of Agony’s “Lost At 22” starts up and B-Brat walks out, smirking and twirling what looks like a long necklace as the crowd boos the second generation star. Halo follows behind her looking stoic and simply ready to go seemingly paying the boo birds no attention at all. B-Brat takes her sweet time getting to the ring making sure she milks all the attention she possibly can as she drinks everything in. She makes her way up the steps and slips through the ropes effortlessly, Halo following right behind her. They take the center of the ring and B-Brat walks up to the ropes, flashing hand signals to the crowd as Halo stands behind her, simply raising her right fist to the sky. B-Brat steps back and smacks Halo on the belly, pointing to her as Halo simply stands tall, ready for war.
“Way Down We Go” by KALEO begins playing on the speakers. Camera shifts to the side of the stage to see Javier Gonzalez stepping through the curtains. He has his arms raised in the air as he walks back and forth.
Liam: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand her partner… Coming to the ring from Albuquerque, NM, standing at 5’10” and weighing in at 190lb, he is your Underground Champion… Javier… Gonzalez!!!
Javier charges down the rampway and slides inside of the ring. He walks to each corner, stepping up to the second rope as he stares across the crowd with no emotion. After completing all six sides, he stops and settles into his corner.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Gena: It looks like Halo and Shannon are going to start this match. Halo grabs hold of Shannon’s shoulders, but Shannon kicks Halo in the stomach. She boxes at Halo’s face and backs her into a corner.
Chad: Halo tries to block, but Shannon fires rapidly, and Halo finds herself sinking into the corner. Shannon begins stomping at Halo, getting her down to a seated position. Shannon backs up and runs toward Halo with a Hip Attack to Halo’s head.
Gena: Halo rolls out of the way. She gets back up to her feet, and then takes the back of Shannon’s head and throws it into the top turnbuckle rapidly. She grabs hold of Shannon’s ponytail and uses it to whip Shannon into the ropes.
Chad: As Shannon rebounds, Halo lifts her up into a Back Body Drop. When Shannon hits the ground, Halo drops an elbow to Shannon’s chest, pushes up and drops another, and then another!
Gena: Halo then hooks the leg of Shannon.
Chad: Shannon kicks out almost effortlessly. Halo goes to pin her down again, but Halo kicks out before the count of one. Halo repeats this, and Shannon kicks out again. Shannon is breathing heavily.
Gena: Halo picks Shannon up and throws her into her corner. Javi grabs Shannon’s shoulders and Halo begins throwing rapid body shots. Powershock tries to get inside of the ring, so Halo tags Javi. Javi jumps inside of the ring.
Chad: Javi goes for Powershock, but Powershock lifts him up onto his shoulders. Powershock carries him around for a second, but Javi slides down Powershock’s back and as Powershock turns around…
Gena: Javi jumps and hits a high kick as Halo Baseball Slide’s Powershock right off his feet! These two are showing a great tag team effort. Halo goes back to Shannon before the referee orders her outside of the ring.
Chad: Javi gives Powershock a few stomps, but then he rushes at Shannon and hits a Spinning Back Elbow Smash! He drags her to the center of the ring and pins her. Can he even do that?!
Gena: Apparently he can. It’s not Mixed Tag Rules, afterall. Powershock drags Javi by the leg, right off of Shannon. He stands up, still holding onto Javi’s leg. Javi jumps as Powershock Clothesline’s him to the mat.
Chad: Shannon gets a few stomps on Javi. He picks Javi up and drags him over to her corner. Javi shoves Shannon into Powershock, forcing the tag!
Gena: Powershock stumbles, but steps right over the top rope. Javi sizes him up for a second, stepping back slowly to gain the proper footing. He leans down, waving Powershock toward him, and as Powershock steps his way… he tags in Halo?!
Chad: Halo looks as stunned as the rest of us for a second. She stares at the hell beast, gulping before stepping through the ropes. Javi cheers her on, drawing boos from the audience at his blatant cowardice.
Gena: Halo takes a few steps forward before throwing a fist right at his midsection. Powershock effectively wraps his hand around her throat and goes to lift her up. He’s going to put our Underground Champion through the fucking canvas!
Chad: But Javi flies off of the top rope with a Missile Dropkick to Powershock’s head! Halo effectively drops, holding onto her throat. Shannon enters the ring and goes for a Low Blow on Javi, but Halo grabs her by the back of her hair and tosses her to the outside of the ring.
Gena: Javi and Halo nod to one another as Javi tucks Powershock’s head between his legs. He and Halo lift him up into a Double Powerbomb. Javi steps back and Halo drops down for the pin as the referee counts!
Chad: What the actual fuck?! Powershock powered his way out of that move there and Halo is as shocked as anyone else. She slaps the mat and looks over at Javi, who nods his head. She starts to come tag him in, but turns around and delivers the Black 13! She covers!
Gena: Halo is beyond disbelief now. She’s fucking pissed off. She stands up and makes good on tagging in Javi. Javi waits for Powershock to get to his feet and he kicks him in the gut before jumping up for a Tornado DDT!
Chad: But Powershock catches him mid air and drops him for the Shock Treatment! Powershock collapses on top of Javi.
Gena: Halo gets inside of the ring for the save!
Chad: But Shannon is right there to stop her with a Spear!
Gena: Halo dodges the Spear and drops an elbow to the back of Powershock’s head! She hits another Black 13 as Powershock tries to get to his feet, and she rolls Javi over, using her own force to help with the pin!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Liam: Here are your winners and STILL Underground Champions… Javier Gonzalez and Halo Willlllllliaaaaamssssssss!!!
The crowd boos, despite the amazing efforts from Javi and Halo. Both reigning champions stand up and hold their arms up together after accepting their belts. “Way Down We Go” plays over the speakers as they then part ways. Javi ascends one corner while Halo walks around the center of the ring, letting the fans know that this belt isn’t going anywhere. Javi crosses the ring to hold his belt up in the air for the other deprived fans to bask in his glory. However, his music cuts out when Veronica Taylor makes her way out to the ring. Her and Angelica bash Halo with a pink “Mean Girls” printed steel chair. They drop Halo to the ground and then begin stomping her. Javi looks down at this attack, and he steps down from his post and rushes over toward the action. Veronica and Angelica stop their attack and back up for a second before Javi leans down and shouts at Halo.
Javier: Sorry chica. Not my problem any longer.
Javi exits the ring as Angelica and Veronica continue their assault until the security team starts to make their way down. They get in a few more good licks before leaving the ring. Veronica takes the microphone from Liam, giving her two cents as the show goes off the air.
Veronica: That uggo inside of the ring that you call a champion? You don’t have to worry much longer about her. She won’t be champion for long. And if Celeste thinks she can outrace the clock and take away my title shot, then she’s wrong. Dead wrong.
Tune in next week for SCU presents: Underground Episode 36 October 3rd, 2019 at 11:59pm PST!
