Tournament Opening Round (Non-Title)
Orchid vs Cordelia Clark
Cordelia and Orchid start off with a solid back and forth battle of submission skill. Cordelia gets control with a side wristlock, but Orchid turns it around with a Hammerlock. Both ladies break away and Orchid nails a Five Point Jab, Kung Fu style. This brings out the Ivy League style in Cordelia as she fights back with kicks to the stomach. The ladies trade advantage in strong, artistic kicks. Each competitor brings their own style, and gives the fans a true Combat Division style match for a moment, despite the wrestling rules. Orchid gains the control with an evasion spin of a punching strike, and nails a well placed chop to the back of Cordelia. She capitalizes with several stomps, breaking the cycle. She pulls Cordelia up, and flings her into the ropes, but Cordelia jumps over a leg sweep attempt. She drops an elbow to the top of Orchid’s head and then goes for the cover. She gets a two count. She argues with the referee, giving Orchid time to get back to her feet. She lays in stiff kicks to the back of Cordelia’s knees, bringing her down. She then hits a knee to the back of Cordelia’s head. As she prepares for the The Orchid Drop (Twist of Fate), Jenifer LaCroix comes out of nowhere and tackles Orchid down to the ground, throwing heavy jabs. Orchid wins via disqualification/ Cordelia’s eyes are wide as she stares in shock at what just happened. The shock takes a moment, and she begins screaming and pointing. The referee shrugs and tells her “them’s the rules”. The referee tries to break it up when Cordelia drags Jenifer off of Orchid. She yells at Jenifer, but Jenifer is about to set her up for the Kimura Lock. Cordelia wriggles out of it and makes her way to the outside. She takes her Underground Championship and pounds on it, pointing to Jenifer, who is about to go back to Orchid when security shows up to separate them.
The scene opens backstage where we see Amy walking down the corridor as she searches for her tag team partner for the evening. Asking several of the backstage staff, they point her in the right direction, and she head that way, however, as she gets closer she stops and turns to the camera, where she adjusts the GRIME championship around her waist and then begins to speak.
Amy: A mean girl’s reunion...
Does this mean we are going to get the same old regurgitated spew from Delia and Mercedes?
A shot of tequila for the following words or sayings that will feature.
You got lucky.
You should have retired.
You should have stayed home.
I think those will cover all bases. Anyway... as I said how delightful a mean girl’s reunion... although is it the tag team or all three of you? Sorry Celeste… I do trust you, but I am basing this off your past.
I thought the mean girls died ages ago or was that my imagination? I know all you still linger like a bad smell especially Veronica and her cheap perfume. Enough of the cheap shots... Tonight... myself and Celeste somehow got dragged into this tag team match up... for which I am grateful it isn’t a title match up. But what is the point of this match? I am guessing Gianni is punishing me because I don't hold any control over GRIME or SCU anymore... or just because he can. Whatever the case, I am prepared for what will be a chaotic match and a hard match. I am not too worried about Delia but I am more focused on Mercedes. But I am not going to write of Delia as she is still dangerous but what has she done recently?
Delia I don’t mean to write you off as I know that you are still dangerous and maybe still kick ass but unfortunately I don’t consider you a threat. Mercedes and her ego is the biggest threat in this match, and she thinks she is the number one contender to the GRIME championship or at least eligible for a rematch, but the thing is… this is a different championship, and you have to work for it and get in line. I beat you once and I will beat you again. You see Mercedes you used to be this wrestler that everyone feared to wrestle because you were unbeatable…but recently you seem to be slipping… most recently you didn’t win the roulette championship from Krystal… and you didn’t beat me, and I think everyone senses this and you are easy pickings.
And this is why you and Delia aren’t going to win this match tonight…
Celeste and I are going to win and there is nothing either of you can do about it.
So good luck… because you will need it.
Amy approaches the locker room door and knocks on it before entering and meeting Celeste for a pre-match chat.

Stewart: I’ve been in some hellish fights in my career and last week ranks right up there as one of the most violent, and I’ll be honest, parts of me are still hurting.
Stewart stretches and cracks his neck.
Stewart: Last Joshua we beat the living crap out of each other, and sent the fans home happy, but I’ll admit I’m disappointed I’m not GRIME champion, but you're a hell of a warrior Joshua and you earned the win last week.
Stewart takes a drink of water.
Stewart: Tonight we meet again here in Boulder Colorado, with my Underground title on the line, and I look forward to tearing the house down with you again.
Stewart lifts up the Underground title.
Stewart: I’ve held this title more times than anyone, and when you’ve held a title for as long as i have you don’t want to let it go. Tonight Joshua, I want the same Joshua Acquin this week, that went to war with me last week, but as much as I respect you Joshua, I’ll be walking out of here tonight still Underground, after the show I’ll even buy to first round at the bar, see you out there Joshua and good luck.
Backstage, getting ready for his match, we come in to see Joshua Acquin standing just outside of the locker room.
Joshua:: I told you folks day in and day out I do the same thing here in SCU. Now it seems like management is hearing me as well as the fans. It felt great driving Stewart through the thumbtack table. How are you feeling Stew? I am feeling great. The feeling of the blood coming down your face really puts you into a fight or flight mode. Then the thumbtacks in the back may be painful but you have to block it out. I pulled twenty-three thumbtacks out of my body last week, but I came away with the win. This week it is a normal match and I intend to win it and become a double champion here in SCU. You can boo me or cheer me. You know one thing that I am better than most in the back. So this week you will be able to call me a double champion.
With that, Joshua closes the door to the locker room.
