Marissa Henry is standing backstage beside Helluva Bottom Carter…
Marissa: Carter, in mere moments, you will be facing seven other competitors in a Ladder match for the right to claim the Briefcase hanging twenty feet above…
Carter ‘urps’ and places a hand on Marissa’s shoulder.
HBCarter: How many feet?
Marissa: Twenty? More than likely twenty five…
HBCarter: Let’s just cut our losses and say twenty, shall we?
Marissa: Carter, if you’re this concerned about heights, do you think you’ll manage to be successful tonight to claim the briefcase? You are opposing people who you know or are close to, such as Alex Rush and Holly Wood.
HBCarter: I’ll be fine. Once the match starts, once the adrenaline kicks in, everything will be fine. It has to be. Because something Kelli Torres said on twitter this week really lit a fire under me.
Marissa: Which is…?
HBCarter: She said how she was busy fighting GRIME, because few have had the guts or the balls to do so. Well, sister?
He looks into the camera and points a polished nail toward himself.
HBCarter: You’re looking at one of those few who has been doing just that. Or trying to, at the very least. It’s hard to do when you’re basically left alone and the numbers are obviously in the court of They Who Have No Balls. The no-nut cowards who have to gang attack a single opponent to get their claws onto a championship because they’ve got no balls and even less talent! They robbed me -- again -- and stole my TV title -- AGAIN! And I am STILL waiting to get my rightful return match … hell! This is the first match I’ve been booked in since I got jobbed all those weeks ago - PERIOD! So until someone grows a set and does what needs to be done? This… here? Tonight? This will have to do! Because even with a TV title return match, this Briefcase will open all sorts of new opportunities.
He holds up a single finger and smiles.
HBCarter: But baby steps. First the briefcase. Then the Television Championship. And after that?
He smiles and shrugs.
HBCarter: Who knows? Alex is a sweety, and who doesn’t love Holly! But this is MY night, and I am making the most of it!
He walks past her and off camera.
Right outside of the elevator, masked member Celeste is there with a newspaper machine lifted up, ready to smash it over Ruby’s head, but Ruby kicks her in the gut and stumbles back several paces.
Ruby: The fucking briefcase! I knew it!
Ada: Ruby picks up the briefcase and smacks Celeste over the head with it. She then thrusts it into Celeste’s midsection. Celeste drops the machine to the ground, and Ruby opens the briefcase, rubbing her hands together as it slowly opens automatically.
Ruby: Gimme that pen, and… sandwiches? What the fuck are sandwiches doing in here? Is that… tomato sauce? Who comes up with this shit?
Rob: Seems Alex Rush forgot his briefcase after getting his firecrotch waxed. Those sandwiches are all crumpled up now, though. Ruby grips them and throws them at Celeste.
Ada: She curses with each throw she does. She lifts the newspaper machine up and goes to throw it on top of Celeste, but she gets kicked in the gut.
Rob: She stumbles back through the beaded curtains into the halls outside of the sweat lodge.
Ada: Celeste comes rushing at her and Spears her through one of the doors. There are a few gentlemen sitting inside, who quickly remove their goggles.
Rob: Celeste and Ruby roll around on the sticky, gross ground as the men slowly slide their hands under their towels.
Ada: This is a distraction of Celeste, but Ruby seems more than used to it as she begins clobbering Celeste.
Man 1: Now kiss her!
Ruby: Fuck OFF!
Rob: Ruby picks up a piece of the burning coal with her gloved hand and throws it at the guy. He instantly fleas the room, but the other guy just gives a nod that says “Keep going”...
Ada: Before Ruby can, Celeste flips her over and slaps the burning embers, causing pieces to fly through the air, and right into Ruby’s face as she screams out in pain.
Rob: Celeste rushes out of the room, fanning out her hooded jacket as she stumbles. Ruby, half blinded, catches up and shoves her through a curtain across the hall. Ruby knocks her right over into a chair for mani-pedi’s.
Ada: How nice of Ruby. Except she’s picking up a pumice stone and cuticle scissors… Might not be pretty. But Celeste grabs the stone and runs it across the face of Ruby, causing her to scream.
Ruby: YOU FUCKING WHORE BITCH! YOU’LL PAY FOR THAT!!!
Rob: Ruby begins trying to stab Celeste with the cuticle scissors, but Celeste is able to dodge the first seven strikes. She then grabs Ruby’s arm and twists, causing her to drop the scissors.
Ada: She kicks Ruby off of her and the two scan the room. They pick up EMS massage tools and crank up the output. They turn to one another and shock the living shit out of each other!!!
Rob: Both ladies fall to the ground, the machines buzzing as they short out. They jolt from the shock before they both just lay there…
Helluva Bottom Carter vs Jamie Staggs vs Stewart Mason vs Andrew Borg vs Kaos vs Alex Rush vs Coby Quik vs Holly Wood
The crowd cheers as the spotlight comes onto the ring. We see Helluva Bottom Carter, Jamie Staggs, Stewart Mason, Andrew Borg, Kaos, Alex Rush, Coby Quik, and Holly Wood standing already in the ring. They each hype up the crowd in their own way as the camera pans around the ring with ladders strewn about outside of the ring.
Darlyn: The following contest is a Ladder Match for the SCU Underground Championship briefcase! Please welcome to the ring… Helluva Bottom Carter... Jamie Staggs... Stewart Mason... Andrew Borg... Kaos... Alex Rush... Coby Quik... and Holly Wood!!!
The men wait rather impatiently for the bell to ring.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Gena: As soon as the bell rings, Jamie, Andrew, Kaos, and Coby roll to the outside of the ring. They go for the ladders strewn about, while Stewart locks up with Carter, and Alex and Holly lock up.
Chad: Alex whips Holly into the ropes, and follows through with a Spear. Holly drops to the mat as Jamie slides a ladder into the ring, but not before getting bashed with a ladder by Kaos.
Gena: Alex goes to pick up the ladder, but Carter reverses a Vertical Suplex attempt and nails one to Stewart, right onto the ladder! Alex shouts at Carter, who shrugs his shoulders in response.
Chad: Stewart writhes on the mat as he slides off of the ladder. Carter and Alex pick the ladder up together, and start to set it up until Andrew slides a ladder inside and smashes it into Carter’s ankles.
Gena: As Carter trips up, Alex sets the ladder up. Before he can center it, Borg gets inside of the ring and hits a Drop Toe Hold on Carter, his head bouncing off of the ladder.
Chad: Alex continues trying to set it up, but Andrew rips it away and smashes it into Alex’s face, sending him into the corner. Coby slides inside, dragging a ladder with him.
Gena: Kaos grabs onto his leg, but Coby turns around and hits a Penalty Kick to the chin of Kaos, breaking free. Holly charges at Coby, but Coby ducks and pulls the ropes down.
Chad: Holly topples to the outside, landing on Jamie, who is still blinking at the ceiling. They land in a 69 position, and the crowd laughs, especially when Jamie doesn’t move right away.
Gena: Inside of the ring, Coby and Andrew stare each other down, with everyone else down on the mat. The crowd cheers, as these two have history. They move in closer to one another.
Chad: Then they get nose to nose, Carter does a kip up, Stewart gets to his feet, and Kaos moves in. Kaos turns Coby around and the two begin trading blows. Stewart spins Borg around and nails a headbutt between the eyes.
Gena: He then hooks Andrew up for a Fisherman’s Suplex onto one of the ladders. Alex and Carter begin working together once more to set up the ladder. Once it is centered, they agree to race up the ladder to the briefcase!
Chad: Alex and Carter both rush up, but Carter gets the advantage until Stewart drags Carter off of the ladder. However, Carter kicks Stewart in the face a few times, sending him back into the corner.
Gena: Alex is almost up, and Carter uses his speed to get between Alex’s legs. He pulls him down a few pegs, and Alex is startled. He flails his arms as he falls back. Carter has such a tight grip of Alex’s legs, and Alex is holding on for dear life.
Chad: Spike Hurricanrana by accident! But it’s effective, as Carter is completely out! Stewart tackles Kaos to the ground and the two begin throwing punches. Holly takes advantage, sliding into the ring and charging up the ladder.
Gena: Halfway up, Coby grabs onto Holly’s leg from under the ladder. She trips up slightly, but catches her balance, turned around. Coby grabs onto Holly’s rainbow locks and pulls her head through the rungs.
Chad: He locks on an inverted STF on the ladder! Holly’s arms are swinging around as she tries to break the hold, but there’s nothing but ladder to grab! She pulls at his arms to try to loosen them up.
Gena: But Coby has it locked on too tightly. He shakes his head, refusing to let go. Holly slowly stops struggling. As she goes limp, Coby begins to loosen up.
Chad: But Jamie slides inside of the ring and pushes the ladder over! It falls against the ropes, and Coby lets go. Jamie looks around and picks up one of the stray ladders.
Gena: As Andrew comes at him, Jamie puts the ladder on his shoulders and begins spinning around. He knocks Andrew down, and then Alex. Kaos tries to get Jamie from behind, but Jamie reverses the spin and catches him in the face, as well as Coby, who is coming for him!
Chad: Jamie continues spinning, and the crowd laughs as he roars, having a great time. That is, until Stewart times it just right. He kicks Jamie in the gut, and then does a Stunner, using the ladder for maximum effect!
Gena: Jamie goes down hard. Stewart picks up the ladder and begins setting it up under the briefcase. He takes hold of it and centers it perfectly. He begins climbing up it. Coby, who has a gash on his forehead, begins climbing up the ladder next!
Chad: He lives up to his name as he beats Stewart to the top. However, Carter pulls himself up to his feet and he climbs up behind Coby. He climbs over Coby and begins messing with the briefcase!
Gena: Alex comes up behind Stewart and locks on the Choke on this Wad (Rear Naked Choke while giving noogies)! Stewart tries to shake him off, while Coby tries to shake Carter off.
Chad: Holly goes up behind Carter and gives him a firm smack on the ass before lifting him off of Coby slightly. Andrew comes up behind Alex and begins clubbing at his back with everything he’s got.
Gena: Jamie gets to his feet and climbs up the ladder from the side. How can this ladder bear so much weight? Jamie bypasses everyone, and he latches onto the briefcase. He tries to fidget with the lock, but Alex begins tickling him.
Chad: Everyone is on the edge of their seats as Kaos gets up from the mat. He sees everyone on one ladder and he begins shaking the ladder. Andrew comes off of it first.
Gena: Kaos knocks the ladder over and Holly, Carter, and Coby fall to the outside of the ring! Alex loses his grip and tumbles outside as well. Stewart holds onto the ladder, breathing heavily as it continues to bounce on the ropes.
Chad: Kaos picks up another ladder already unfolded and he sets it up under the briefcase, which is halfway unsecured! Kaos begins climbing up the ladder toward the briefcase when Stewart jumps off the knocked over ladder and onto the other ladder.
Gena: The two make it to the top around the same time, and they throw powerful punches. Kaos begins getting the better of Stewart, nailing punch after punch.
Chad: Wait! Stewart ducks under a punch and he punches Kaos in the stomach. He steps up and drops Kaos onto the top of the ladder with the Paid in Full (Impact DDT)!
Gena: Stewart holds onto the ladder and pulls himself up. He grabs hold of the briefcase and yanks, causing it to come off! He climbs down the ladder and to the mat as Coby slides inside, pounding the mat in frustration!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Darlyn: Here is your winner and SCU briefcase holder… Stewart Mason!!!
Stewart’s music plays as he tucks the briefcase under his arm. He chuckles as a swagger enters his step. Coby just stares at Stewart for a moment before joining the crowd in clapping for him.
“Unbreakable” by Fireflight starts to blast through the sound system and the fans in attendance erupt in loud cheers. Alexis bursts through the curtain a few moments later, a huge smile on her face and the Underground Championship now secured around her waist! She takes in all the cheers before she starts making her way to the ring, ready to address the fans and all of SCU.
Once to the ring, she unclasps the belt, slides it under the bottom rope, then slides into the ring herself before jumping back to her feet and picking up the belt. She dashes over to the corner and jumps up to the second turnbuckle, raising the Underground Championship above her head, to another round of cheers. She jumps down and repeats the process on the turnbuckle on the direct opposite of the ring before walking over and getting a microphone. She rests the belt over her shoulder and stands in the center of the ring as her music finally dies down. She waits a moment for the cheers to follow suit before she raises the microphone to speak.
Alexis: I bet so many people standing in the back were so sure they would never see this day. The day where I’d be standing out here, addressing you all, as the NEW Underground Champion.
Another huge pop from the crowd and Alexis chuckles and looks at the belt before looking around the crowd.
Alexis: To be honest, I lost track of how long I had that damn briefcase, and for a moment, I forgot I even had. Before I took my leave of absence to deal with different family things…
She goes quiet for a moment, her mind immediately drifting to her husband, Tim Staggs(NOT Shepherd!), before taking in a deep breath and continuing.
Alexis: Week in and week out, I kept getting my ass kicked by GRIME every chance they got. It was like they weren’t going to allow me to cash in the briefcase, much less win the championship, and I let it discourage me. I let it get to my head and thought to myself...why bother?
The crowd now boos after Alexis mentions GRIME. But she nods and holds up a hand, still balancing the title on her shoulder.
Alexis: Why bother cashing in if I knew that it would be ruined? If I knew that MY moment would be stolen from me by Gianni’s band of low life scum, because they have nothing better to do than ruin things for everyone else? Well, I’ll tell you why. Because I fucking EARNED it. I won that briefcase, and I earned the right to cash it in. Even if I couldn’t guarantee walking away with the title when I finally cashed in!
The crowd cheers again as Alexis lowers the microphone for a second. She grabs the belt from her shoulder and holds it up to her eye level, staring at it.
Alexis: I deserved to cash it in the way I wanted to cash it in, which by the way was more respectable than the other briefcase winner, O’Malley, can say am I right? I promised I wouldn’t cash in like he did, and I stood by that promise and there is NO ONE that can deny my win means more than his ever will. And do you want to know just who helped me realize that I needed to seize my opportunity and not waste it?
The crowd goes quiet for a moment as Alexis looks around, now an almost sad look in her eyes.
Alexis: My husband! That should come as no surprise but considering his complete personality change as of late, it may very well come as a surprise. But, you see, he persuaded me weeks ago, before any of this religious crap started spewing from his mouth, and the moment when I should have been truly celebrating with him, he apparently had more important things on his mind. And despite being an EQUAL to Father Gerald where SCU is concerned, I’m suddenly made to feel like because I’m a woman, I’m not. The fact that I have to be at the top of SCU with that man, after what he’s done to my husband, and what he’s trying to do to my son...it sickens me!
Alexis places the belt back on her shoulder and she paces back and forth in the ring for a moment, gathering her thoughts. She stops and then looks back into the camera.
Alexis: But, I don’t want to focus on any of that for now. I need to focus on defending this title and being the absolute BEST champion I can be, because I want to be a parent my son can be proud of! I want to be a champion you all can be proud of, and my time starts now! I know the second I won this belt, a huge target appeared on my back, and it won’t go away until I lose this title. But I say bring it. Unless your name is Valentina- because screw you bitch. Oh, and unless your name is Veronica Taylor, because I beat you, bitch..
Alexis looks down at the belt, smiles and then looks back into the camera.
Alexis: I’ll take on anyone and everyone. Dahlia Rotten? You deserve your return shot, so why not? Inception IV is right around the corner. Come get some. And to whoever wins the briefcase tonight...I’ll be watching very closely. I haven’t done much of anything the last couple of months, but going forward, Alexis...Edwards...is ready to fucking shine! I’m not a Nobody anymore. I’m the fucking Underground Champion!
She then tosses the microphone down and holds the title into the camera as her music starts playing again and the fans cheer her on.
The lights of the near empty casino are blinding as the machines flash to get the attention of those who are not there. The ringing and dinging of the machines bring an instant joy to the scene, only stopped as Jade walks through the center aisle. She has a kendo stick in one hand, and a map of the casino in the other.
Jade: It’s got to be around here somewhere…
Jade spots the second entrance, and she moves over to it. However, as soon as she gets there, she sees another masked member standing there… Orchid.
Masked Orchid: Come any closer, and I swear I’ll fucking stab you a hundred times before you can even swing that kendo stick.
Jade: It’s always more fun to take down the feisty ones. I’ll take that challenge.
Jade winds up the kendo stick. Orchid throws the briefcase at Jade, and then pulls out a knife. The referee rushes over and wrestles with her hand.
Referee: Weapons of Class 4 or lower only! I will disqualify you!
Masked Orchid: Yet you let me go through a glass coffee table and a dessert case… Fuck you. I…
Jade: You stupid girl… It’s just sandwiches. And lots and lots of pickles. You couldn’t smell that?
Masked Orchid: I’m wearing a fucking mask!
Jade: And so am I? And you were really going to stab me over a contract?
Orchid shrugs her shoulders and looks down.at the sandwiches and pickles on the ground, wrapped. She picks up a pickle spear and takes a bite through her mask. Jade does the same. They click pickles as they lean against the railing outside of the casino.
Jade: You going to make a run for it, or are we taking a break?
Masked Orchid: Have you been thrown through glass twice already?
Jade: Have you had a planter shattered over you, and threatened to be stabbed to death?
Masked Orchid: Touche, bitch. Respect.
Another bite of pickle apiece, and we fade elsewhere.
Cold Blood Elimination Match
Javier Gonzalez vs Skag vs Cyan vs Andrey Azarov vs Rory Rockefeller vs Jerry Cann
Liam: The following contest is Cold Blood Elimination Match… Already in the ring, we have… Javier Gonzalez... Skag... Cyan... Andrey Azarov... Rory Rockefeller... and Jerry Cann!!!
Javier Gonzalez, Skag, Cyan, Andrey Azarov, Rory Rockefeller, and Jerry Cann are seen standing inside of the ring as “American Landfill” by 3TEETH plays over the speakers. However, they don’t wait for the bell as they start to go at it!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Ada: Inside of the ring, the turnbuckles are covered in nails, and there are boards around the outside of the ring, covered in broken glass. Not to mention the steel chairs leaning up against the ropes.
Rob: It should be a quick match, considering. Rory grabs onto Cyan and tosses him over the ropes immediately. He lands on top of one of the boards, but the hoodie and gloves protect him.
Ada: Jerry Cann leaps over Rory and over the ropes, looking to tear up Cyan with a Diving Elbow Drop. But Cyan moves out of the way, and Jerry lands on the board, cracking it in half, and Jerry is scratched up, bleeding!
Liam: Jerry Cann has been eliminated!
Rob: Skag and Andrey look at one another, but they are cut off when Javi spins Andrey around and nails him with a DDT, and Rory nails a Big Boot to Skag, putting him down.
Ada: Cyan slides back inside of the ring and grabs hold of Rory, throwing him into the ropes. As Rory comes back, Cyan looks for a Back Body Drop over the ropes, but Rory hits a Punt Kick to his chin.
Rob: Rory lifts Cyan up and goes to throw him on top of another board, but Cyan is able to take advantage of the gloves, cartwheeling off of the table and landing on the mat. He stands up, only for Javi to jump through the ropes with a Suicide Dive!
Ada: Javi and Cyan begin brawling on the outside as Javi talks about the costs of rebelling against Filth. Inside of the ring, Rory turns around as Skag and Andrey are both on their feet. The two put their differences aside long enough to grab Rory.
Rob: Skag and Andrey both throw Rory into the corner. Skag hits a Running Dropkick while Andrey follows it up with a Spear! Rory grimaces as he stays on the turnbuckle for a second. He looks around and then slowly steps away, growling in pain.
Ada: He’s bleeding! Rory is bleeding!
Liam: Rory Rockefeller has been eliminated!
Rob: Rory is PISSED! He grabs both men and clanks their heads together, not once, but twice, and they fall down to the ground.
Ada: Rory makes his exits, but not before taking one of the boards and throwing it inside of the ring!
Rob: As Rory walks past the brawling Javi and Cyan, he grabs Cyan by the back of the head and bounces it off of the ring steps. He gives a nod to Javi and then disappears up the ramp, clearly pissed off.
Ada: Javi takes advantage of this and he picks Cyan up and carries him to the barricade, dropping him chin first onto it. He takes one of the steel chairs from inside of the ring and he begins bashing it over Cyan’s back.
Rob: It doesn’t take long for Pakistan Green, Sea Green, and Saddie Brown to rush the ringside area. Saddie Brown smacks Javi with a steel pipe while the two towers of Sea Green and Pakistan Green lift Javi up and drop him through the boards!
Ada: They take the shattered pieces and they begin smacking Javi with them, leaving no doubt about it!
Liam: Javier Gonzalez has been eliminated!
Ada: Talk about some bullshit… Saddie Brown helps Cyan back up to his feet as Skag and Andrey start back to theirs. Saddie Brown smacks Andrey across the face with the pipe as he leans through the ropes, and blood gushes from his mouth!
Liam: Andrey Azarov has been eliminated!
Rob: Skag looks at the four closing in on him and he slowly creeps back into the corner. He looks around for something before a sinister grin comes over his face. He leans forward and pats at his face.
Ada: He’s asking them to bust him open? Even with the briefcase at stake? They shrug their shoulders and start in when The Monstimals come rushing out from the back! Lord Raab grabs onto Pakistan Green, while Samuel McPherson hits a Chokeslam on Sea Green!
Rob: Saddie Brown clubs Raab across the back with the steel pipe, but Skag rushes at him and pulls his mask off to reveal… Dorian B!!!
Crowd: WHAT?!? BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Ada: Dorian swings the pipe at Skag, but Skag moves out of the way, tripping him up into the top turnbuckle, busting him open. Cyan comes at him, but Skag dodges out of the way and dropkicks a chair right into into Cyan’s mask, cracking it partially!
Rob: Within a few seconds, we can see the blood trickling down from under Cyan’s mask!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Liam: Masked member Cyan has been eliminated… Therefore, your winner and GRIME Briefcase holder is… SKAG!!!
The crowd gives off a mixed reaction as Skag’s music begins playing. Skag takes the briefcase and crouches down as Lord Raab and Samuel continue their assault on Pakistan Green, who does his best to fight back The Monstimals before finally taking his retreat. He drags Sea Green and Cyan out with ease. He then helps Saddie Brown outside of the ring as he stares back at the Monstimals inside of the ring, as well as Skag.
Ada: Does this mean that The Monstimals have accepted Skag’s terms of joining them? Has Skag even actually made a decision? Tune in next week for… wait, we have no show next week.
Rob: One thing I know about Skag from his time in EPIC is that he enjoys the mind games, and from the lack of celebration with The Monstimals, he could just be playing games here.
Skag grins as he looks at Lord Raab specifically. He winks with the unpainted side of his face and mutters “Danke” before departing from the ring.
Up top, we see Jade and Orchid walking on the roof, toward a door that reads “Saxon Arcade and Laser Tag Arena”. They aren’t fighting, but rather, working together as Orchid holds the map.
Jade: It should be over there, but it might be on the inside of the building.
Masked Orchid: The map doesn’t even have a newsstand marked on it.
Jade: You’ve never been to the arcade?
Masked Orchid: Yeah, but I don’t pay attention to that shit. I’m going to play some motherfucking laser tag.
Jade shrugs and takes the map. She walks over to the door and opens it for Orchid. Orchid does a curtsy, but it’s more of a sarcastic move. She enters the arcade. A few of the teenagers who are away from their parents, go rushing toward the door.
Teen 1: Come on! Ruby and masked member Celeste are fighting in the casino!
Teen 2: But we can’t get into the casino. We’re too young.
Teen 3: We can watch over the ropes. Plus, I heard one of their tits popped out earlier. Maybe it’ll happen again.
Teen 4: Hell yeah!
Jade and Orchid look to one another and laugh, shaking their heads. They begin jogging toward the casino.
The camera’s cut to the women’s locker room. We see Jenifer Lacroix with Merissa Henry as she’s set to interview Le Coven.
Marissa: Where’s Celeste North?
Jenifer shrugs as she’s not sure.
Marissa: Have you seen her around?
Jenifer shakes her head no.
Marissa: Do you know if Celeste is on her way?
Jenifer just shrugs as she’s not sure.
Marissa: Well, Jenifer, what’s your plan in SCU this year?
Jenifer just shrugs.
Marissa: Give me something.
Jenifer: GRIME, give. Me GRIME.
Marissa: GRIME has attacked you many times over the past year. Just a few weeks ago, they interfered in your match against Mrs. Right.
Marissa: Sorry, that wasn’t a question; I was just making a statement.
Jenifer: Angel of Filth, Omasa Tazu, Esther, Kittie, Jade, Helena… Any… All… Come. At. Me.
Marissa: Jenifer’s calling out GRIME Wrestlers. But would any of them take her invite is the question.
Delia Darling appears in the shot. She goes over to Jenifer and speaks to her in French. Jenifer looks at Darling and walks away; Darling walks with her as Marissa turns to the camera.
Marissa: Did Delia Darling just tell Jenifer that Celeste is a member of GRIME Wrestling?
Marissa turns and jogs over to Jenifer and Delia to find out what’s going on as the camera goes elsewhere.
Ada: We’re returning to the veranda outside of the Saxon Casino, and we’ve got Ruby righting off masked members Celeste, Jade, and Orchid, while she holds a briefcase in her hand.
Rob: Jade ducks it as Ruby tries for her next. Celeste picks Ruby up and drops her with an Atomic Drop, and then a clothesline onto the railing.
Ada: Jade and Orchid club at Ruby, but she refuses to let go of the briefcase, or the railing, even being forty-two stories high. She spits in the face of Orchid.
Rob: She kicks Jade in the face. She pushes Celeste back, but Celeste comes back at her, trying to knock Ruby straight off the roof!
Ada: But Ruby holds onto the railing. She’s dangling above the city streets below, holding on as she kicks her feet, trying to find some sort of grounding.
Rob: Celeste turns around and Jade is there. She slams a backpack into Celeste’s chest and pats her on the back.
Masked Celeste: What’s this?
Jade: You’re going to need it…
Ada: Jade shoves Celeste over the railing and dusts her hands off as Celeste looks in the bag and quickly puts it on her shoulders. She rips the cord and a parachute comes out.
Masked Celeste: Now I see the base jumping sign… I’ll be back soon.
Rob: It’s a long way down, sweetheart! Orchid picks up the briefcase and quickly opens it. She sees that there’s only some paperwork in there, and she begins fumbling through it.
Masked Orchid: Fuck! These are court summons from the office of Despayre and Angel!
Ada: Orchid bashes the back of Jade’s head with the briefcase, sending her over next to Ruby.
Ruby: You better not knock me off, you masked bitch!
Jade: I’m too young to die, bitch. I’m just trying to live!
Rob: Orchid goes running to the next section of the hotel, right across the way from the casino… Saxon Arcade and Laser Tag Arena!
Ada: Ruby is able to climb over Jade, and Jade soon flips herself back up, and the two go chasing after Orchid. Orchid makes it to the doors and flings it open. She disappears inside.
Rob: Jade and Ruby brawl back and forth as they make their way toward the door. Jade grabs Ruby and picks her up, dropping her in the trash can, head first!
Ada: She knocks the can over and then kicks it so that Ruby goes rolling. She flings the door open. She sees across the arcade area that Orchid is already at the newsstand and she has a briefcase in her hands.
Rob: Jade kicks it into high gear as she runs faster toward the other end. She catches Orchid just as she swings the case with all her might, knocking Jade down to the ground!
Ada: As Orchid opens the case, cans of RC Cola go flying all over the place. Some of them fizz as they pop open. Jade is out cold now.
Masked Orchid: I’m not as stupid as Ruby. I’m going to finish this off right here, right now…
Rob: Ruby comes rushing at her and grabs onto the back of Orchid’s jacket. She flings her right into a claw machine. As Ruby charges at her, Orchid does a Drop Toe Hold into the machine.
Ada: She waits as Ruby starts to get up to hit a Superkick right through the glass of the machine! Ruby is busted open, and Orchid leans into the machine, pulling out a cute unicorn plush doll.
Rob: She squeals and holds onto it tightly as she looks around, thinking things over. She suddenly starts running for the laser tag arena.
Ada: she bursts through the doors and begins moving through the first venue. Moving past the exit, she goes to the second venue that looks like a Call of Duty setting.
Rob: Moving through it, she finds a dilapidated newsstand facade. She looks around in the rubble, and she pulls out a briefcase, dusting it off. She opens it up and pulls out a folder with a contract and a pen.
Ada: She signs the back page and initials a few on the front, slapping it back into the briefcase!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Liam: Here is your winner and GRIME World Nightmare Championship briefcase holder… Masked member Orchid!!!
Orchid doesn’t have time to celebrate when Jade comes in and knocks her over the head with a laser tag gun. She then knocks her under the chin, sending her flying through the newsstand.
Jade: Smart girl, but treacherous girl. I could peel that mask off of you right now, and expose you for the traitor that you are… but I won’t. Enjoy the briefcase.
GRIME Rules Match
Hitamashii vs “The Italian Stallion” Gianni Di Luca
Liam: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a GRIME Rules Match!!! First… From Hijemi, Japan, standing at 5’8” and weighing in at 192lb, he is… Hitamashii!!!
Entrance Description (Mandatory for bookings):The opening riffs of Fire In Our House by Astral Doors hits the speakers and Kingingiseisha “Hitamashii” Shirasu comes out to the stage, looking smug, and stands there as the crowd gives him boos. Hitamashii walks from one side of the stage to the other with a swag in his step before he looks around the crowd, and starts to walk towards the ring slowly, stopping halfway down the ramp and turning his head with his nose in the air to look at the crowd, their faces showing that they do not like the way he is looking down upon them. Hitamashii lowers his head slowly and turns back to face the ring, walking down towards the apron. Hitamashii climbs up to the apron and steps between the top rope and the middle rope, looking around at the fans as they continue to boo him.
"Wrecked" by Killbot blasts over the speakers. The fans immediately turn their attention to the entryway. A few cameramen file through the curtains.
Liam: Aaaaaaaaaand his opponent, from Seaside Heights, NJ standing at 6’5” and weighing in at 285lb, he is your GRIME General Manager… “The Italian Stallion” Gianni Di Luca!!!
Gianni comes down to the ring, light pyro going off around him.that rain down on him as he pauses, looking from side to side as the jeers form. He looks from side to side once more with a smirk forming on his face, soaking it all in as Veronica Taylor appears at his side, rubbing on his chest. He looks at what seems to be each and every fan before throwing his fist in the air, taunting the fans with a series of slow, sarcastic fists pumps. He waves off the fans as he walks down the ramp with Veronica, stopping at the bottom, spinning a complete 360 while leaping on one foot with his arms out at his sides. He comes to the head of the ring and jumps onto the ring apron, pausing with his arms held out at his side as Veronica stands behind him, peeling off his Bad Boys jacket. She rubs oil on his chest, only because she enjoys letting people know that he is hers. He nods his head once more before climbing under the top rope. He bounces from the ropes, then runs over to the far turnbuckle and raises his fist high in the air fto taunt the audience and pose for the camera crew. He jumps down and jogs in place.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
" This is not a test. This is your WGN broadcast system announcing the commencement of the Purge sanctioned by the G.R.I.M.E. Wrestling. Weapons of class 4 and lower have been authorized for use during the Purge. All other weapons are restricted. SCU officials and the medical team have been granted immunity from the Purge and shall not be harmed. Commencing at the siren, any and all attacks will be allowed until the end of Sin City Underground programming. Emergency medical services will be unavailable until the Purge concludes. Blessed by our new WGN Head of Standards and Practices. SCU, a federation reborn. May God be with you all."
Ada: Wait, a Purge, but it's SCU stars rushing down to ringside!
Halo, Jenifer, Kelli, Mrs. Right, Melissa, and Stacy Ruin slide in the ring. The six ladies stand in the center of the ring as they all look at Hitamashii.
Rob: Is SCU doing their own Purge?
Ada: Not sure, but Gianni is laughing as Stacy and Melissa rush Hitamashii and start throwing punches. Kelli and Halo run over to them but stop and turn around and rush Gianni. Halo goes for a leaping clothesline as Kelli goes down for a tackle. The two drop Gianni as Hitamashii fights off the Ruin Sisters.
Rob: Mrs. Right goes over to help the Ruin sisters as she grabs Hitamashi by the neck and lifts him for a chokeslam. Halo and Kelli get Gianni to his fight. They Irish whip him towards Jenifer, and she nails him with a spinning back fist to his face.
Ada: Let's go backstage as we have a camera in the GRIME Locker room!
The cameras cut over to the GRIME locker room as the men of GRIME watch on.
Max: We need to go out there and send SCU a message!
Javier: Let go get those fools!
Eric Weaver opens the locker room door only to see Holly Wood, HB Carter, Jamie Staggs, Dax, Stewart Mason, Mason and Jason Fox, Coby Quik, Kaos, and Mickey Carrol. Eric closes the door and looks at Nightmare Champion Max Burke.
Eric: We have a problem.
Max: Don't be a pussy, open the door and fight your way out.
Eric opens the door again as the SCU stars wait for GRIME to come out. Eric takes a step out of the room only to get kicks in the head from the side. Eric falls to the floor as the kicker, hugging against the wall and jumps, landing on Eric.
We see it's none other than OTE Member Michi. The Jeckels and Skag come out only to tangle up with Alex, Holly Wood, and Coby Quik.
Lord Raab and Samuel come out, the Fox Brothers go to Grab them, but Lord grabs Mason as Sam grabs Jason instead and toss them towards the other SCu stars to give GRIME more room to get out of the locker room. Earl and Dahlia appear on the screen as the two and Stewart Mason grapple with the Monsitmals. TV Champion Cyan runs out only to get speared out of nowhere by HB Carter.
Max Burke comes out of the locker room; Kaos tries to grab Max, but Max kicks him in the gut, then pushes him towards Mickey Carroll as he creates an opening to get to ringside.
A camera follows Max; Max turns the corner and stops. The camera turns the corner to see waiting down the hallway is Combat Champions Eyesnsane and Merlot Ayano. Javi, Andrey, and Rory catch up to Max. The four run towards the two Combat Champions
Merlot and Eyesnsane step aside. We see Alex Rush Rush from a distance riding Edward Roberts. They charge at GRIME. The GRIME Wrestlers see the rhino and turn back the way they came.
At ringside,, we see Gianni and Hitamashii lead out on the mat with the six women standing over them. Stacy and Melissa drag Hitamashii and place him on top of Gianni. Jade slides in the ring to make the count.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Ada: The woman in the ring attacked both men in this GRIME Rules match. They decided who they wanted to see win, and now it looks like we may find out why as Halo gets two microphones from Darlyn and hands one to Kelli Torres.
Kelli: The men of GRIME are busy in the back with the rest of SCU. The Women of GRIME are busy at the Saxon Hotel. A big mistake on their part.
Halo: Angel Of Filth claimed to have invaded SCU. Well, how do you like it when we do our own Purge. Now your boss and number one contender for your top belt is here on their backs. Your CHampion Max Burke, Cyan, and the Jeckels are in the back getting dealt with because of you.
Halo passes the microphone to Melissa as Kelli begins speaking again.
Kelli: Angel laid it out to everyone in GRIME Wrestling. No one is to attack Veronica Taylor. Yet Angel of Filth can not control her own roster. Her own Champion Omasa Tazu should not have shown up here today. She was supposed to be with the rest of the GRIME Women at the Saxon Hotel. Instead, Omasa showed up and demanded a title match against Ms. Untouchable herself.
Melissa: How does it feel knowing that one of your own is going against you in every way she can. I guess, in a way, your Omasa is SCU's Veronica. I'm inclined to leave Omasa alone as she seems to be doing a great job helping SCU, even if she's not trying to do that.
Kelli hands her microphone to Stacy Ruin. Melissa gets ready to speak again but stops as the crowd breaks out to a Stacy Ruin chant.
Crowd: Stacy Ruin!!! Clap, clap, clap clap clap. Stacy Ruin!!! Clap, clap, clap clap clap. Stacy Ruin!!! Clap, clap, clap clap clap. Stacy Ruin!!! Clap, clap, clap clap clap.
Stacy: So now, Veronica, you refuse to be a part of the war. Omasa is making sure you get your fair share of a beating. I think I can speak for everyone in SCU when I say. We All Look Forward To Seeing You Get Your Ass Kicked By Omasa Tazu!
Melissa: As for Valentina and Angel Kash, you two are wanting to stay out of this. GRIME is here to get rid of us, not the six of us in the ring, everyone in SCU.
Stacy: On top of that, the personal jabs you took at mine and Debbi's expense will be something I'm going to address. Get ready to be sorry for running your mouth.
Melissa: Since we all know Valentina will just interfere, we may as well make this a tag team match!
Ada: Gianni and Hitamashii sit up. Jenifer and Mrs. Right point to the ropes.
Rob: It looks like SCU is letting them leave the ring without further attacks.
Stacy gives Kelli the mic, and Melissa gives Halo the mic.
Halo: We know Angel of Filth will have something to say when we get to Inception. But we only need to hear Filth say one word. All she needs to say is, Yes as in yes to me challenge. Filth, I'm calling you out to a match at Inception.
Kelli: Halo, Melissa had a great point about Valentina helping Angel Kash. As of Last, Helena seems to become Filth's bitch. SOOOOO, How about another tag team match. If Filth and Helena have the guts to face Halo and me!
Halo: They don't want that Kelli. It's bad enough to take on one of us but the two of us. No GRIME wrestlers want that. Why do you think some of them run to that locker room? They can't handle the SCU talent.
Kelli: Except for Veronica, she is so bad in the ring that GRIME feels sorry for her and gives her a pass.
The ladies look towards the rampway as the SCUTron turns on to show a camera shooting the back loading area of the Golden Ring Casino. We see a trunk unloading cooking supplies. The garage door slowly opens up next to it. We see dozens and dozens of feet. As the door keeps opening, we see the women of GRIME wrestling. The SCU women in the ring exit the ring and head up the rampway as the show goes off the air.
