OTE Locker room Combat Champion Eyesnsane and Merlot challenger Michi are seen talking with Mrs. Right as they go over their Combat matches. Dax walks into the locker room to high fives from Kaos and Mickey for his win over Stewart Mason.
Dax: Okay guys, I’m halfway there, tonight I’ll take the Underground title from Father Gerald. Eyesnsane, you’ll be retaining against Andrew Borg, and Michi is going to be the one to take the Combat title from Michi, keeping her undefeated streak.
Kaos: Not to mention Micky, Mrs. Right, and I in these tag matches to take out GRIME.
Mickey: Yes, tonight is a bloody big night for us mates.
Eyesnsane: Michi and I are going over our matches now.
Dax: Good shit, tonight's Over The Edge’s night.
Michi: Tonight we all shine, we’ll change SCU forever after we hold all those titles.
Mrs. Right: That’s right, tonight we’ll show all of SCU and GRIME will see what OTE is all about.
Michi: One match at a time, Dax got one match out of the way, now it’s up to the rest of us to do the same.
Eyesnsane: We got this... Kaos, Mickey, and Mrs. Right, your tag matches are just as important.
Michi: He’s right, beating GRIME tonight would be a big blow to them. YOu three are at the forefront for it to happen.
Dax: Exactly, tonight we make SCU proud to have OTE. We set the scene for what's to come going forward.
Everyone looks at Eyesnsane.
Michi: This is the part where you bring…
Eyesnsane: Oh what, say no more…
Eyesnsane turns his body and pulls something out of his bag. We see a bottle of Jack Daniels.
Eyesnsane: After we win our matches, we celebrate with Jack Daniels, A proud sponsor of Over The Edge.
Michi: Great way to not make it feel forced.
Eyesnsane: I forgot, I made it work.
Eyesnsane as the camera cutaway.
A couple of moments pass before the camera comes to life. As it does, the audience is immediately introduced to the inner confines of a massive gym. However, our focus quickly shifts to the Eastern quadrant of the facility. Rows and rows of heavy bags sway gently. But one in particular is rocking back in a violent manner. An older Japanese woman sternly grips onto the last heavy bag in the row. Savvy combat fans would recognize her as Natsuko Aimi, of professional wrestling and shoot boxing fame. She holds that massive sand-filled sack steady as someone throws a mighty middle kick.
The camera pans over to reveal Merlot Ayano.
Natsuko nods her head at the kick’s impact and gestures for her to attempt a few more. Merlot obliges by delivering five sharp middle kicks that cause Natsuko to grin.
Natsuko Aimi: Low kicks now.
Merlot Ayano: Hai!
Merlot takes a second to regroup before she begins to pound the heavy bag with low kicks.
Natsuko Aimi: Your training with Hirota-chan has been beneficial. Your impact is good and your form is sharp. Just be sure to keep your left hand up to protect your face.
Merlot Ayano: Hai!
A moment or two passes before Merlot is seen doing some training on a few blue floor mats. Natsuko can be seen shouting instructions as Merlot sparrs with another Japanese woman. This partner is closer to her age. The two of them exchange a number of submissions and escapes. After a couple of minutes, Merlot finds herself in position to lock in a rear naked choke. Her training partner does her best to try and fight out of it, but she is forced to tap out shortly afterwards. Merlot quickly releases the hold
Natsuko Aimi: Good, good. Your submissions are crisp, as always. But next time you go for a rear naked choke? Make sure your elbow is firmly underneath their chin. Sora tapped out because of your overwhelming strength, but other people like Michelle will be able to break out. Have to tighten up.
Merlot nods her head.
Merlot Ayano: Hai, hai.
Natsuko responds with a hand clap.
Natsuko Aimi: Alright. Get back to it. Give me a couple of more rounds.
Merlot Ayano: Hai!
The scene quickly shifts to Merlot and Natsuko seated at a table as they discuss some sort of a game plan.
Natsuko Aimi: Patience has always been your strong suit, which is beneficial in this case. You’ll need to pick your spots and capitalize, certainly. But if you are too impatient and rush in, you’ll get clobbered. Understand?
Merlot Ayano: Hai. Have to fight smart.
Natsuko Aimi: And for you? Probably want to keep the fight standing up. You’re an elite striker. That will give Michelle many problems. And while your ground game is good, it’s easy to get flustered on the mat during an MMA fight. We don’t want that happening to you. So we’re going to focus even more on your ground and submission defense, but your main goal should be to stay off of the ground. Understand? But if it happens? Keep your cool.
Merlot simply nods her head.
A moment passes before the scene switches once again. A swift highlight montage depicts Merlot engaging in submission defense, more heavy bag work, and some extensive running (for her cardio). After all that is said and done, an exhausted Ayano woman plops down on a bench. She uses a towel to dry her face.
Merlot Ayano: Michelle DeJesus? Want you to know that Merlot recognizes you as threat. If anyone is worthy of challenging for Sin City Underground Combat Championship, is Michelle. If anyone has chance of beating Merlot in MMA fight, is Michelle. This fight? Is very dangerous. But the pressure? That danger? Is all exactly what Merlot needs to thrive. May not seem like it, but Merlot has been behind Eight-Ball for most of career. Have been underdog great deal of life. That fact doesn’t get Merlot down. Doesn’t make Merlot sad. All it does is make Merlot stronger in spirit and mind. All it does is make Merlot fight ten times harder. And everyone will witness that at High Stakes X. Hai!
Afterwards, the corner’s of Merlot’s mouth arch upwards into a small smile. She holds that smile a few seconds before she licks her lips. And with that, the camera begins to fade out.
Elimination Match for Bragging Rights
H.B. Carter, Alex Rush, Kaos, Mickey Carrol Vs Jerry Cann, Pakistan Green, Eric Weaver and Yellow
Darlyn: The following contest is an 8 Man Elimination Tag Team Match for bragging rights!!!
Gold stars start to flash around the stage entrance as the arena lights start to drop out and a voice is heard saying "Do you wanna get rocked?" The name Alex Rush appears on the screen and the fans instantly burst in to cheers as Def Leppards "Let's Get Rocked" blasts through the speakers.
Darlyn: From Westminister, London, England, weighing in at two hundred and ten pounds, he is Alex Rush!
Smoke appears at the top of the ramp as a spotlight hits the entrance way to see the back of a long haired man with one hand in the air holding up the devil horns sign. He turns around to more cheers as the spotlight shines on the face of Alex Rush! A line of security as seen either side of him as the lights brighten to show fans "held back" by security at the top of the ramp. Alex is wearing black leather pants with a red stripe down either side, a white shirt with the devill horns hand sign on in a faded gray colour. Around his wrist, a multi coloured scarf is tied. He looks to the held back fans and wave a hand at them in a presidential fashion before making his way down to the ringside area. Alex steps up the steps and through the middle and top rope and in to the center of the ring, his arms in the air with the devil horns sign as gold sparks fall from the roof. Alex reaches down, removing his shirt and throws it to the crowd as he waits for his partners to arrive.
Glee Cast Version of “I Know What Boys Like” begins to play and Carter steps through the curtains, holding an ankle length, sleeveless black robe closed in front of him. He then whips it open, revealing his ring attire of a printed belly t, booty shorts and thigh high boots. He holds one hand behind his head while running the other hand down his body while grinding his hips to the music.
Darlyn: From Seattle, Washington, weighing 176 pounds, he is the "Hardcore Bottom" -- Helluva Bottom Carter!
Carter drops the robe to the stage and runs toward the ring, slapping hands offered out to him all around the ringside area. He then hops up onto the ring apron in a split and slides beneath the bottom rope. He crawls seductively on all fours until he arrives in his corner. He pulls himself up and then lays across the top corner, awaiting his partners.
Darlyn: Standing at 6’1”..weighing in at 239lbs, The American Nightmare, KAOS !!!
The arena lights dim low and neon red lights appear at the bottom of the titan tron as the fast electric piano beat kicks into "ISIS" and red lasers are shot across the arena as if there were people aiming at you. As the song progresses , the beat reaches a high peak the lights under the titan tron turn off and the baseline kicks in, the lights turn back on revealing “KAOS” standing, with a look of fearless vengeance, at the top of the aisle. Confusion and defensive questions from the crowd, he begins to make his way to ringside walking in a disciplined stride, takes a pause and looks around then proceeds to walk up the stairs into the Ring.
The opening of "Amazing Grace" by Dropkick Murphys plays as Mickey pushes through the curtains. He pulls the cigarette out of his mouth and drops it on the ground, quickly putting it out as he marches back and forth across the stage.
Liam: Coming to the ring, from London, England, standing at 5'11" and weighing in at 190lb, he is "Sin City's Resident Shithead"... Mickey Carrrrrrrrrrrrolllllllllllll!!!
He looks from side to side, nodding his head at the cheers before pointing out into the audience, starting an powerful "Oi! Oi! Oi!" chant that really gets the crowd pumped. He dashes straight down the ramp where he leaps up and onto the ring apron. He paces back and forth, stomping along to the beat of the music before climbing inside. He looks up at the ceiling and then signals the trinity, kissing his fingers and then pointing up as he waits for his opponents to arrive while talking with his partners.
Liam: And then…
Liam is cut off by “American Landfill” by 3TEETH plays over the speakers. Jacob Johnson, Eric Weaver, and masked member Yellow climb over the barricade as Pakistan Green comes down the entryway. They all enter the ring at the same time and step toward SCU’s team, being broken up by the referees. Once things settle down, Liam takes the center of the ring.
Liam: Aaaaaaaand their opponents, Eric Weaver, Jacob Johnson, and representing the masked members of GRIME, Pakistan Green, and…
Yellow walks over to Liam and holds up a hand. He looks out around the audience and nods his head as his hand reaches up for the mask. The crowd cheers, surprisingly, and Yellow slowly undoes his mask and brings it down to his side, giving Liam a nod as the crowd gives a quick pop, fading into a mixed reaction.
Liam: And Skag!!!
Skag takes a bow, bringing about more boos, living up to the GRIME standard. Alex Rush moves over with Carter, Kaos, and Mickey, and they go on the attack as Alex spins around and kicks Pakistan Green in the groin!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Gena: These eight men could not wait to get the action started. Mickey is on top of Pakistan Green, throwing hands left and right.
Ada: Alex is pacing back and forth as Skag looks up at him in pain. Alex then turns and hits a Ramming Headbutt to Eric Weaver! And then Jacob Johnson!!!
Gena: A couple of those headbutts seemed a little “lower” than the stomach. The referee warns him.
Alex: There’s plenty more where that came from, yeah?
Ada: The Vegas crowd is supporting Alex tonight. I wonder when that new Firecrotch album is going to drop.
Gena: Ref is telling Alex that one more low blow, and he’s thrown out. Alex nods his head as the referee starts to call all 6 men to their corners.
Ada: Slowly, everyone else goes to their corners, leaving Pakistan Green and Alex in the ring. Pakistan Green backs up into a corner and pulls himself up, shaking it all off.
Gena: Pakistan Green starts jogging in place, throwing jabs as he gets ready for Alex. He then jogs to the center of the ring, and Pakistan Green puts a hand to Alex’s forehead as Alex tries swinging wildly at him.
Ada: Pakistan Green with his height advantage, and his teammates are laughing and pointing at Alex as Pakistan Green shrugs his free shoulder.
Gena: With the distraction, Alex ducks under Pakistan Green’s hand and punches him right in the junk!
Dylan: YOU’RE OUTTA HERE!!!
Liam: Alex Rush has been eliminated via disqualification!!!
Alex: WORTH IT!!!
Ada: Alex doesn’t even try to argue the call as he steps to the outside, but does not leave ringside.
Gena: Carter jumps inside of the ring, but Pakistan Green rolls over and tags in Skag. Skag dashes over to Carter, and Carter ducks a Clothesline.
Ada: He leans back with a Back Heel Kick to Skag, knocking him down to the ground. He then picks Skag up from the mat and sends him into the ropes.
Gena: As Skag comes back, he dives out of the way, surprising us with a bit of a Lucha style roll up pin.
Ada: Skag slams the mat and then lifts Carter up. Both men go for Dropkicks, pushing off each other’s feet, rolling back up to their feet, ready to meet each other with punches.
Gena: They stop and stare at one another with a smile on their faces. Carter mutters props to Skag and goes to shake his hand, but Skag slaps him across the face and laughs at him.
Ada: Skag points over to Pakistan Green and Eric and nods his head before pointing to the other team, and then putting his thumbs down.
Gena: Carter slaps Skag back and then goes to knock into Pakistan Green and Eric, but they drop the ropes, letting Carter fall to the outside. They are joined by Jacob as they begin stomping away at Carter.
Ada: I hear they like to call this move “Pound Town”. I’ve been there before, a time or two. The most beautiful fountains there.
Gena: Mickey and Kaos drop down to the arena floor and rush over to help Carter out. It turns into an all out brawl. It’s crazy out there, a flurry of punches and kicks and clubs.
Ada: It looks like the best orgy ever produced! It’s like a work of Greek art, crafted by the Gods.
Gena: Or a bunch of sweaty dudes beating the shit out of each other. Dylan begins counting.
Ada: Nobody cares as SCU and GRIME go at it like mad men. Nobody wants to give an inch.
Gena: Pakistan Green tries to make it inside of the ring to get away from the madness, but Mickey grabs onto his leg and pulls him back into the frey.
Ada: Pakistan Green claws his way back as a stray fist knocks Mickey back a few steps. He slides back inside of the ring as Dylan shakes his head and counts.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
There is a few seconds of pause as the crowd seems confused. Pakistan Green drops to his knees and waves his hands to Dylan. He pleads with him for a second before Dylan shakes his head and rolls his eyes. He walks over to Liam and gives his verdict.
Liam: As a result of a countout, and refusal to comply with the referee, resulting in disqualification. Your soul survivor… Pakistan Green!!!
Pakistan Green points and laughs at the others on the outside, including the other GRIME members. He raises his arms up in the air and turns around in a slow circle, taunting the booing crowd. He goes on to celebrate on his own as Skag glares at him with a sinister grin on his face as “American Landfill” by 3TEETH plays over the speakers. He rubs his hands together as he rushes up the ramp after.
Jenifer LaCroix Vs Delia Darling
Darlyn: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!!!
J'ai un grand projet pour l'avenir
Pour lui plaire je vais devenir
Jenny from from the curtain to cheers and whistling from the men in the arena. Jenny waves at the crowd as she gets introduced.
Darlyn: On the way to the ring, from Calgary, Alberta, Canada!!! Jenifer Lacroix!!!
Jenny rocks out on the way to the ring jumping to the beat of the song as the lyrics play.
La Stone Family
I am Marvin Gaye
Oh Yeah , Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah
Darlyn: On her way to the ring, from France, standing at 5’3” and weighing in at 120lb, she is… Jenifer LaCroix!!!
Jenny slides in the ring and continues to jump around to the beat, getting the crowd hyped up for the match.
Tu sais, tu sais, tu sais
Demain ou peut-être jamais
Jenny climbs to the middle turnbuckle as the music fades out raising her hand in the air getting a last minute pop from the crowd.
“Nightmare” by Halsey plays over the speakers. The lights in the arena dim down slightly. Pink and white lights flash upon the stage as the curtains are shoved aside. The fans boo loudly as Delia Darling steps out, wearing a sparkling pink dress. She flips her hair back and smirks as she saunters halfway down the ramp.
Darlyn: On the way to the ring from Paris, France she is… Delia Darling!!!
Delia reaches down and tears away the bottom of the dress to reveal a one-piece suit. She tosses the dress portion out into the crowd. She looks from side to side before she darts under the bottom rope. She slowly walks to the center before looking around. She pauses dramatically before striking a pose for the cameras flashing. She walks around the ring, standing on the turnbuckles to draw in boos from the fans. Once she's finished, she walks to the corner and stares at the stage, waiting for the match to start.
As the ref is about to call for the bell, she is cut off. “Turn my Swag On” by Keri Hilison hits over the pa system as the lights begin to flash all over the arena, as the fans give a loud ovation of booing. As, a makeshift runway appears, and soon a red carpet is rolled on top of it. As, out from the back steps Veronica Taylor with outstretched arms as the fans boo her, before grabbing her mirror and blowing herself a kiss. After a few moments she begins to do a model like strut on the red carpet runway as a few photographers appear to take her photos, as she poses arrogantly. She then takes a look around her grabbing her perfume from Veronica's Secret and sprays it around to get rid of the "stench" in the arena. Veronica then stands at the end of the entrance ramp, doing some more poses. Before, raising her arms in the air as the fans fill the air with more boos. Before, she mouths to the camera "So damn first class baby", before blowing a kiss to the camera. She then moves to the ring apron, demanding a microphone.
Jenifer glares at her, and Delia seems to be confused as to why Veronica is out there. Both ladies start to come closer when Veronica orders them back. Jenifer is about to clock her when the referee orders her back. Darlyn hands Veronica a microphone, and she raises it to her lips as she leans on the top rope, looking over her shoulder at the crowd.
Veronica: You all didn’t think it would be a super show without “First Class” Veronica soon-to-be Di Luca, did you?
Veronica: Ugh, whatever. You do realize that I can smell your collective breath when you do that at the same time. Yeah, it’s not flattering.
Veronica steps inside of the ring and she prances around a bit. She strikes another pose and then looks right at Delia.
Veronica: And that is how it’s done, baby.
Veronica settles into a corner as Jenifer taps her foot impatiently. Delia continues talking, but Veronica holds a hand up to silence her, and this goes over like a fart in church.
Veronica: Hush, Deelz. I’m talking. You know, an active wrestler. Who is on the roster. Who doesn’t get booked. And yet, you do? Are you even signed to this roster, or do you just show up when you need your ego stroked.
Delia is heard chortling loudly in the stereotypical French manner. She now goes for Veronica, but the referee stops her, and Veronica smiles, batting her eyelashes.
Veronica: You don’t get to put your old hands on me, honey. I would’ve taken a match with you if this was 2014, but it’s not, and you’re irrelevant, just like those two cartoon emo girls you run around with, and Mercedes. Relics of the past. Go visit Amy in the retirement home, because I’m sure you’ll just love it there.
Now the referee and Jenifer have to hold Delia back as Veronica puts on a fake pouty expression.
Veronica: Truth hurts, hunty. But things are getting just a little out of hand around here, and I can’t stand by and watch you taking my airtime when you don’t deserve it. A great GM once told me that if you want something, you have to go out and take it. And instead of fighting fuggos and basics, I figured I’d fight a girl who used to be pretty, and a bitch with an undefeated streak that I’d be more than happy to take care of.
Veronica begins pulling off her expensive outfit to reveal her wrestling attire. The crowd gives off a mixed reaction, because half of them want to see Jenifer rip her head off, and the other half want to see Delia rip her head off. She folds her dress carefully and charges the timekeeper with keeping it safe.
Veronica: Now, I know that I’ve said some things that might be a little upsetting to you ladies, but know that I meant every last damn word of it, and give me all you g…
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Chad: Delia and Jenifer are quick to dive at Veronica, who drops and rolls to the outside. She points at them, and the referee, scolding them both.
Veronica: I WASN’T DONE TALKING YET!
Delia: SAY IT WI’S VOUS’ FISTS, HENNY!
Jenifer: Mes poings vous feront fermer la bouche! (My fists will make you shut up!)
Gena: Veronica stomps angrily as she stomps up the ring steps. She orders Delia and Jenifer back, but both women grab onto an arm each and they pull her over and inside of the ring!
Chad: Delia and Jen stomp vigorously on her before she rolls out of the way and into the corner. On her hands and knees, she shouts back at them, and they charge her.
Gena: Veronica quickly rolls outside of the ring. She picks up the microphone lying next to her, and she catches her breath before speaking.
Veronica: You two really need to watch your tempers and focus on actual skills. I know it’s hard for two non-wrestlers, but…
Chad: Delia and Jenifer roll outside and begin chasing Veronica around the ring. Veronica screams as she is barely able to avoid them. Delia and Jenifer talk in French as they coordinate.
Gena: Delia takes off running in the opposite direction as Jenifer continues to chase her. She nearly crashes into Delia and she screams even more loudly. She turns around, and nearly falls victim to a Clothesline from Jenifer.
Chad: She slides inside of the ring, escaping both women. As Jenifer and Delia try to get back inside, Veronica stomps on them, knocking them back outside. She shouts at the referee to count, and they oblige, but without purpose.
Gena: There are no countouts or disqualifications in a Triple Threat match. The referee gives up counting once Veronica’s legs are grabbed, and she gets pulled to the outside. Jenifer whips Veronica at the ring steps.
Chad: Veronica rolls over the steps, landing on her feet as she rushes away again. Jenifer chases her with everything she’s got, and Delia surprises Veronica with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex.
Gena: Jenifer is able to lock on the Kimura Lock outside of the ring, causing Veronica to scream. She instantly taps out to the hold, but Jenifer leaves it locked on.
Chad: It’s not inside of the ring, so it doesn’t count. The referee, however, does order Jenifer to let go of the hold. As she does, Delia hits a boot to Veronica’s face. This quickly turned into a Handicap Match.
Gena: With the two being scheduled as opponents to begin with. Something about Veronica’s face makes you want to punch the fuck out of it, though.
Chad: Delia rolls Veronica back inside of the ring, but Veronica is quick to roll across to the outside. She goes under the ring. As Delia grabs onto her ankle, she gets blasted in the face with a fire extinguisher’s spray!
Gena: I hear commotion going on now, but I can’t see anything! As the smoke dissipates, we can see Jenifer and Delia out cold on the ground, and Veronica is nowhere to be found! The referee assesses the situation carefully. They check under the ring on all six sides.
Chad: Without seeing Veronica, and the two other competitors out cold, the referee shrugs their shoulders and calls for the bell!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Darlyn: … The referee is throwing this match out, ruling it a No Contest!
Outside Orleans Arena, Max Burke is found sitting under one of the lights in the parking lot. The light bounces off the GRIME World Nightmare Championship that lays on the asphalt. Max runs his fingers across the surface of the parking lot.
Max: How did it feel?
The path of his fingers stop, and he brings them up in front of his face.
Max: Tell me Gold. How did it feel? How did it feel when you awoke under the lights of the Mandalay Bay parking lot. How did this feel?
He pats the cool evening asphalt beside him. Burke smirks and picks up his championship. He lays it across his lap.
Max: As I promised you couldn’t get the job done. Just like all of the others. You kissed this pavement when all was said and done. As promised, I walked away and am still your GRIME World Nightmare Champion. Honest to God, I’m not sure what Gianni is thinking.
Max chuckles for a moment before continuing.
Max: Are you even cleared? Have you passed concussion protocols? Not sure what kind of ship Gianni is steering here, but I was appalled that this match was even sanctioned for tonight at High Stakes X. This long term damage is not on me. I’m just saying. I’m no doc, but I really don’t think it is in your best interest to go out there tonight. Not my funeral bud. Prepare for Groundhog Day Gold. This isn’t going anywhere. Hell, you might even kiss the pavement again. Let’s see what tickles my fancy.
Max pops up off the pavement. He throws his ring coat on, picks up the GRIME World Nightmare Championship.
Max: Tonight at High Stakes X, Gold whether you are 100% or not makes no difference to the champ. You are not leaving with my championship. The GRIME World Nightmare Championship has been the rebirth of Max Burke. My reign continues tonight. It’s just a fact. One more time... #andstill.
Max walks past the camera and makes his way inside.
GRIME Championship Match
Gold Vs Max Burke
Liam:: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a GRIME Rules Match for the GRIME World Nightmare Championship!!! Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiintroducing first, representing the masked members of GRIME, he is… GOLD!!!
“American Landfill” by 3TEETH plays over the speakers as Gold rushes through the crowd and climbs onto the ring apron. He turns around and stares out into the audience before he turns back and enters the ring. He walks to one side, and climbs up it, raising one arm into the air as he looks out into the crowd once more. He turns back and climbs down as he waits for his opponent.
Jared James Nichols opening vocals on "Nails In The Coffin" cuts through the silence, as a fog fills the SCU entrance. A light from below reveals the current G.R.I.M.E World Nightmare Champion, Max Burke and his associate "The Freight Train Of Pain" Casey Williams.
Liam: On his way to the ring, from Dorchester, New Brunswick Canada, standing at 6' and weighing in at 220lb, current G.R.I.M.E World Nightmare Champion, Max Burke!!!
As the music intensifies, “The Destroyer” reaches the edge of the squared circle. He turns on his heel, and makes his way to the ring steps. Once on the ringside apron, Burke glides his finger over the top rope as he walks to the center. He turns, his head bowed. Spotlights hit him from all directions as his music reaches a crescendo. Max swiftly removes his Abaddon mask and cackles into the camera, lifting his championship above his head. He hands off his title to Casey as he waits for the match to begin.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Ada: Gold instantly looks to do as much damage as quickly as possible. He slides out of the ring to grab weapons to get a head start on the champ.
Rob: Unfortunately, as he gets up, Max Burke hits a Baseball Slide to the masked member. Gold goes down, and Max picks up the chair Gold had gotten.
Ada: He sets the chair up and over Gold’s chest. He sits backwards in the chair and leans over to talk trash to Gold. A little slap to the face stokes the fire.
Rob: Gold is able to knock the chair over, and Max narrowly escapes going over with it. Gold hits a punch right the Max’s groin area!
Ada: I don’t have those, but I hear that hurts pretty terribly. Gold picks the chair up and slaps it against the face of the champ. He picks Max up and rolls him inside of the ring. He tosses a few choices into the ring. Kendo stick, chair, fire extinguisher…
Rob: He slides inside of the ring and he picks Max’s head up off of the mat, and hits a few closed fist punches for good measure. He then grabs the fire extinguisher and slams it into Max’s forehead, and we’ve got a small bit of blood!
Ada: The crowd’s bloodlust is aroused now as Gold goes to crack him once more. However, Max is able to tackle Gold into, and over, the ropes. Gold is practically unphased by this as he points up to Max and laughs.
Rob: Casey is looming nearby, ready with his glove. Gold taunts Casey which is the worst idea ever. He grabs onto Max’s boot, tripping him up, and then he stretches his leg around the ringpost.
Ada: Casey comes waltzing over, so Gold lets go of the hold. He gets inside of the ring, and lets out a laugh. Casey starts to slide inside, but Max is able to roll Gold up into a pin!
Rob: Gold gets out with just enough time. He rolls over onto his stomach, and Max grabs onto his hood. He drags him to his feet and hits a Kitchen Sink knee to the face.
Ada: Gold stumbles back against the ropes. As Max approaches, Gold ducks out of the way and kicks him in the gut. He grabs the trash can and slams it against Max’s forehead. He then puts it over Max’s head.
Rob: Gold picks up the kendo stick and begins rapidly beating against the can, causing Max to stumble around until Gold hits a good hit that takes Max down. Max kicks at Gold’s knee in a cheap tactic, taking him down.
Ada: Gold tries to get to the ropes, but Casey is waiting, balling his fist up into the palm of his free hand. Gold turns around as Max kicks him right in the mask. Blood trickles out from his mask’s smile.
Rob: Max grabs his hair again and begins nailing punch after punch to his face. Gold is able to hit a Fireman’s Carry on Max. He tries for a cover, but Casey pulls Max out.
Ada: Max taunts Gold some more, causing Gold to rush at the ropes. He jumps through them, taking Max and Casey down! He rolls Max inside of the ring and immediately tries for a cover.
Rob: Not only does he kick out, but Max locks on the Revelations (Von Erich Claw)! Gold tries to escape it, but he simply can’t! He reaches around until he gets hold of the kendo stick. He whacks Max over the head with it.
Ada: Gold breaks the hold and he crawls over toward the ropes. Casey is waiting there, but Gold kicks him in the face as hard as he can. He spins on his knees and swings the kendo stick at Casey, knocking him down to the ground!
Rob: Gold walks over toward Max menacingly with the kendo stick now, but… Hitamashii! Hitamashii slides inside of the ring! We’re sure to have a new champion now!
Ada: Dying Breed circle around their old mentor, and Omasa is present just in case anyone gets untoward, I suppose. Casey holds his hands up innocently, when he is anything but.
Rob: Hitamashii smacks the back of Gold playfully as they both walk toward Max, and the crowd gives off a mixed reaction. Hitamashii extends his hand for the kendo stick, nodding, because he deserves a little retribution, and so does the Dying Breed.
Ada: Gold gives it over as he picks up the fire extinguisher. Hitamashii twirls the kendo stick around a few times artistically. He then spins and hits… Gold?! Hitamashii hits him a few more times with the kendo stick? What is going on here?
Rob: Max Burke is just as confused as the rest of us, but he hits Maximum Overdrive (Snapmare Driver) on Gold and hooks the leg!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Liam: Here is your winner via submission… Your GRIME World Nightmare Champion, Max Burke!!!
Max rolls to the outside as Casey hands him the belt. He raises it up as he looks at Dying Breed, who are backing up to join Omasa. Hitamashii rolls to the outside and tosses the kendo stick to the ground. He then walks over to Max and forcefully raises his hand. He cackles as he points to Max as the crowd showers him and Hitamashii in boos. Hitamashii shakes his head and then slaps the chest of Max and points to the title.
However, he then hits a Roundhouse Kick to Max’s stomach. Ivan and Andrew and Omasa begin beating on Casey with locks and chains, and Omasa with her wooden sword. They beat Casey down to the ground, and Hitamashii picks up the GRIME World Nightmare Championship belt and cold cocks Max with it. He then places the belt to his waist and kneels down so that the unconscious Max can “see” the belt around Hitamashii’s waist.
Hitamashii: You. Me. Unfinished business, Max…
Hitamashii is almost stunned by the positive reaction as he drapes the belt across Max’s chest. He gives it a gentle pat and whispers just loud enough for the cameras to hear him.
Hitamashii: I will see you soon. Max is going to keep you nice and polished for me.
Hitamashii cackles as the crowd imitates his cackle. Ivan, Andrew, and Omasa ease up on Casey finally as they join Hitamashii at the rampway. They slowly walk up the ramp, taking time to look back at their destruction. They raise their arms up together.
Elimination Match for Bragging Rights
Andrey, Javi, Jade, Kittie Vs Damian Dark, Mark Cross, Angel Kash, and Valentina
Liam: The following contest is an Elimination Tag Team Match for bragging rights! On their way to the ring next, representing GRIME, they are Andrey Azarov, Javier Gonzalez, Kittie, and masked member Jade!!!
“Way Down We Go” by KALEO plays over the speakers. Javi, Andrey, Jade, and Kittie storm the ring from all sides of the audience, coming together in the ring. Despite their differences in style, the four stnd together in solidarity. Andrey and Javi taunt the audience while Jade and Kittie look like statues in the center of the ring, glaring out into the audience.
Darlyn: Aaaand their opponents! First… Standing at 5’9” and weighing 250lb, he is… Damian Dark!!!
The lights go off and you here let me in the devil's here and out comes Damian Dark in a casket wheeled down to the ring with red liquid on top of it.
Darlyn: Next, from Canterbury, England, standing at 6’1” and weighing in at 225lb, he is… Mark “The Dragon” Crrrrrrrrrosssssss!!!
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.
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 arrogant and exaggerated fashion, Angel Kash herself walks out as the fans boo loudly. Valentina walks out behind her.
Darlyn: And next, from The Hamptons, NY, standing at 5’9” and weighing in at 125lb, she is “The Trillion Dollar Princess”... Angel Kaaaaaaaaaaaashhhhhhhhhh!!! And Valentina!!! BOSS BITCHES!!!
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 and Val blow arrogant kisses 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, Val doing the same as they are 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.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Chad: We’re starting off with Mark Cross as he goes up against Andrey Azarov. The two tie up, but Andrey grabs Cross by the back of the head and flings him over the ropes. He taunts the former Underground Champ.
Ada: Cross gets a cheap shot from behind… well, a punch at least. He grabs onto the back of Andrey’s neck and uses the ropes for leverage as he does a Body Scissors like a total cheater. The referee calls for the break.
LET HIM GO!
Chad: Cheater? He’s only doing what your guys do regularly. But, when threatened, Cross lets go of Andrey, who slumps down to the ground. He starts to crawl over toward his corner, but Cross nails a low Dropkick to the back of the head.
Ada: Cross drags Andrey back to the center of the ring and then nails a few stomps. He turns to celebrate, which is the wrong thing to do with a vicious Andrey creeping up behind him.
Chad: You mean hitting a low blow while Kittie and Javi distract the referee? Cross goes down and Andrey nails a few hard hitting punches to the back of the head that may or may not be closed fisted.
Ada: Absolutely not! Andrey drags Cross up to his feet and whips him into the ropes. As Andrey goes for a Back Body Drop, Cross ducks and rolls, taking Andrey over with him in a pin where he may or may not be pulling the tights?
Chad: Can we get a replay to show he was NOT holding the tights? Great, there, you see? No tight pulling. Just pure wrestling. Cross makes it to his corner, ready to tag Valentina, who snubs her nose like she doesn’t even recognize him.
Ada: Typical stuck up SCU behavior. She drops down, refusing to touch him, and Angel does the same. He goes to tag in Damian, but Javi, who was tagged in by Andrey, hits a Superkick to Damian, dropping him down next to Val and Angel.
Chad: Javi poses against the turnbuckle to taunt Cross, but Cross hits several quick, but calculated knee strikes to Javi, backing him into the now empty corner. He hits a high kick, and then a few elbow strikes for good measure.
Ada: Now that Javi has been beaten down into the corner with cheap shots, Cross backs up several paces. He rams a knee into Javi’s face, putting him down on the mat. He hooks the leg…
Chad: Jade and Kittie make it in to pull Cross off of Javi. They begin hitting quick strikes of their own. Jabs, chops, kicks, and Jade drops him with an uppercut before the referee is able to back the two ladies out of the ring.
Ada: We’re not used to disqualifications, because our wrestlers have balls and don’t rely on them. Javi pulls himself up and he picks Cross up and sends him into the ropes. Kittie gets a blind tag and hops over the ropes.
Chad: Underhanded. Makes sense coming from GRIME. Cross, however, dives to his corner and forces a tag to Valentina who huffs. She gets inside of the ring, and walks right up to Kittie. Val and Kittie share a few words before Kittie smacks Val across the face!
Ada: Kittie seems pleased with herself until Val fires right back with a slap and claw combination that leaves a bloody streak across Kittie’s face. Val flips her hair and walks over, ready to tag in Damian, when she turns and slaps the taste out of Cross’ mouth!
Chad: Val would fit in so well with GRIME, wouldn’t she? Cross is back in, and before he can try to return the favor of a tag, Kittie jumps on his back and begins biting and scratching him as she screams like a fucking psycho!
Ada: I’ll give you that, but that’s no secret. Cross whips her over and onto her ass as he flies into the ropes and hits a knee to Kittie’s face. She rolls over and makes a tag to Jade, who quickly gets inside and hits a Superkick of her own. Cross goes down and the ref counts!
Chad: Damian comes inside to break up the count, but Javi nails another Superkick, shaking out his knee as he throws up three fingers!
Liam: Mark “The Dragon” Cross has been eliminated!!!
Ada: Jade seems pretty proud of herself and she steps back slowly to tag anyone else back in, and Andrey takes the tag. He climbs back inside as Angel and Val argue with Damian, who eventually steps back inside.
Chad: Damian rushes at Andrey, but Andrey ducks and then grabs the back of Damian’s head and sends him flying right into the ring post. He picks Damian up and nails a Tombstone Piledriver on him, Damian’s own finisher, with Andrey’s patented “Shadow Cyclone” technique! He hooks the legs, both of them…
Liam: Damian Dark has been eliminated!!!
Ada: The crowd is ready to see Valentina and Angel Kash truly get involved here. Both women discuss something before Angel Kash steps down. She flips her hair over her shoulder and says something to Val.
Chad: Val takes one step inside of the ring and looks across as Andrey, Javi, Jade, and Kittie all sneer at her. At least I imagine Jade is under her mask. Andrey blows a kiss while Javi flicks his tongue between his fingers, and Kittie makes cat calls funny enough.
Ada: Jade waves her inside as Andrey rushes at her. She drops down to the venue floor next to Angel and waves them all off. The two “Boss Bitches” of SCU walk off to the rampway. Jade is ready to go on the attack, but Kittie holds her back a second and whispers. Jade nods and waves goodbye to them. Boss Bitches disappear behind the curtains now…
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Liam: As a result of a forfeit, here are your winners… Andrey Azarov, Javier Gonzalez, masked member Jade, and Kittie!!!
The members of GRIME howl like wild animals as “American Landfill” by 3TEETH plays over the speakers.
Angel and Val are walking backstage in disgust as Val pumps almost half a bottle of hand sanitizer over her right hand. She groans and she rubs it in and it drips everywhere.
Angel: You are very hot tempered, honey. I never would have touched any of those gross people if I had a choice like you did.
Valentina: That old guy who “didn’t” abandon me that was in the match? Mike Crocs of something? He wouldn’t take his eyes off of me. I know I’m hot, but damn…
Angel: So hot. He can only dream, girl. It’s the price of being one of the Boss Bitches. And that hideous thing that slapped you? Ugh, gross.
Valentina: So gross. She better have learned a thing or two about Valentina, baby. She doesn’t mess around, because as the Boss Bitches prove, being hot doesn’t mean we can’t fight.
Valentina: It doesn’t? You two could’ve fooled me.
Val and Angel stop their friendly bantering and stroking their own egos long enough to turn to their left to see the SCU GM Lexa standing there, looking none too pleased.
Valentina: Look, you can’t expect us to mingle with people like Donnie Darko, Mick Carroll, Andy Azazuzu, puta perra Javi, masked member Puke Green, and…
Valentina: You are dismissed.
Valentina: Um, you can’t use thhhh…
Val scoffs and gets ready to say something else, when Angel pats her on the shoulder and gives her a nod. Val’s nostrils flare up as she starts to walk down the hall, cursing Lexa out in Spanish.
Valentina: I’ll deal with you later.
Angel: “Deal with”? Oh, sweetie, you are still pretty new around here, and…
Valentina: And nothing. You, as a champion, should know how things work around here. I don’t ask you to like me, but I will demand respect. And what you just did out there was disrespectful to, not just me, but the entire SCU roster.
Angel preens at her nails and yawns. She finally looks up to Lexa and sneers, her perfectly done hair still untouched.
Angel: Is there a point to all of this, because I’m ready to get my bubbly on in the VIP lounge, and…
Valentina: Unless you feel like handing over that Uncensored TV title right here and right now, I suggest you get it through your thick hair just who you’re talking to like that. I can do whatever I like, and this little attitude of yours just lets me know that I’m doing the right thing.
Lexa turns Angel around and points her back to the curtains.
Valentina: You’ve got a title defense “honey”. Knock ‘em dead out there.
Lexa nudges her through the curtains. Angel looks out into the blinding lights as Darlyn takes center stage, now that GRIME has taken their celebration through the crowd.
