Orchid vs Delia Darling
As Orchid stands in the ring in her wrestling gear, the fans give off a mixed reaction. She stretches, getting ready for the match. “Nightmare” by Halsey plays over the speakers, but Delia Darling is nowhere to be seen. The music stops and she is announced again, but again, there is no answer. Lo and behold, a third attempt to get the former Mean Girl to come out, and she does, however, not in wrestling attire. Orchid shrugs, ready to take her on. However, Delia does not get inside of the ring. She stays on the apron and holds her hand out to get a microphone handed directly to her. This garners a boo from the audience. She wastes no time as she looks right at Orchid.
Darling: Oh, Orchid… Orchid, Orchid, Orchid… It is a wonder you have been in z’e business as long as you have, and vous still has not figured some’sing so important out yet.
Orchid looks confused, but also riled up and ready to fight. Delia starts to step inside, but Orchid comes toward her, and Delia steps back outside. The referee stops Orchid from attacking Delia.
Darling: Z’is dress is wor’s more z’an your entire wardrobe, darling. It is insured for a quarter of a million dollars. Good gawd girl getta grip, kay? S’anks.
Delia rolls her eyes and flips her hair. She steps inside of the ring, and Orchid continues to be blocked by the referee. Delia prances around, taking advantage of the freedom.
Darling: Last week, we were booked in z’is match for tonight. I spent so much time s’inking about it, and… honestly? It is benea’s me. Of course, not you yourself. I have a great respect for vous, Song. Z’e best Fo Shan Bombshells member in my opinion.
Orchid tries even harder now to get at Delia, who audibly laughs out loud. She stops and perches herself up on the top turnbuckle like a true queen of the ring.
Darling: But our match tonight will not be happening. See, Delia Darling is an attraction. A spotlight follows me wherever I may go. And an episode of Underground does not provide z’at. So, come Inception, we will have our time. I will give you exactly what vous wants when I defeat you. Z’ere is no question of z’at. But, I will make you famous in doing so at Inception ras’er z’an tonight, where it does nei’ser of us any good, darling. Do you see what I’m saying?
Orchid nods her head, though she is itching to get a piece. Delia nods back and claps. She lowers herself from the turnbuckle and prances around the ring a little more.
Darling: So it is official! Delia Darling appears in ring at Inception. Merry Christmas, for z’is is my gift to you! And…
Delia turns around right as Song hits a Roundhouse Kick to Delia, putting her down and out cold on the mat. She raises her nose at Delia and then kicks dirt over her. She walks with pride to the ropes and exits the ring.
The scene cuts backstage to Chelsea LeClair and she is in a determined mood, even if her mood isn’t the brightest at the moment. She has definitely gone through her fair share of frustrations in recent weeks, especially when it comes to Veronica Taylor. However, tonight is a little bit different. Knowing that she’s going to be facing her tonight does make things a little bit more palatable for her. Yet, she’s still showing some annoyed anger on her face as she begins to express her thoughts.
Chelsea: FINALLY! You protest long enough and the people in charge finally give you what you want. Yeah, I know that I am facing Veronica Taylor tonight as I’ve been clamoring for, for the last couple of weeks now, but before I get to that, I really do need to address some circumstances that suddenly make my own marginalization since I’ve been here make a lot more sense. I was told that if I wasn’t facing Veronica tonight and if Donna didn’t intervene, I would’ve been in a dark match tonight. Gianni was deliberately planning to keep me off a televised wrestling match again. Knowing this, I have so many questions. Was what happened with not even having a match at all for High Stakes, the main show OR the pre-show, deliberate? Was HE the one pulling the strings behind that? I am not going to go into conspiracy theories but based on that nugget of information I got, it makes a LOT of sense. Of course, when I speak out against Veronica Taylor and want a rematch with her, he’s going to do everything in his power to make sure that I DON’T get to face her… hell… I even have some video footage that portrays… pretty much a day in the life of Veronica and Gianni as far as I’m concerned.
Special credit to my boyfriend Kevin for helping me with this…
The scene statics to a pre-recorded vignette where Chelsea’s boyfriend Kevin is sitting in a makeshift office with the name tag “Gianni DeDipshit” written on it.
Kevin: Oh? You mean that bitch Chelsea is whining again? Eh. What makes her so special? Nothing, ya hear me? Nothing. She ain’t owed anything.
Kevin: I’ll call ya back…
Kevin hangs up the phone as Chelsea walks into the scene. Chelsea is portraying and parodying Veronica Taylor down to the nines… including some exaggerated wrinkles drawn in the corners of her eyes.
Chelsea: Did you confirm my 12th plastic surgery appointment? I still need like five more after that to complete my transformation into a horse, ya know?
Kevin: Yes, of course my dear sweet, Veronica. You have the most beautiful face in the world. Ignore the people that vomit and call your face a hideous monstrosity. It is perfect. Just like you. You’re not that Chelsea Nobody that keeps crying for a match against you.
Chelsea: You’re not actually going to give her that match are you?
Kevin: What? NO! I have to protect you my darling. We all know she is trying to use your name for fame since she hasn’t hacked it in SCU so far. She’s on track to being the biggest bust in the company since Andi Lynx.
Chelsea: Good, because that rat isn’t WORTHY of facing PERFECTION like me! That UGGO! You must continue to protect me from her because the whole world knows that if she faces me, she would beat my ass and I have to protect the face, you understand? I HAVE TO PROTECT THE FACE!
Kevin: Yes, yes of course. You can keep hiding behind me for as long as you like my sweet. She just can’t accept the fact that you choked her. She really needs to get over it.
Chelsea: She does! Hey, if I do you a “favor” will you give me another chance at the GRIME title?
Kevin: OF COURSE, darling! Of course!!!
Kevin stands up and leaves behind the “Gianni DeDipshit” desk and walks out with Chelsea, ending the parody skit.
The vignette cuts back to Chelsea who is chuckling a bit at the parody that she and her boyfriend put together.
Chelsea: Veronica, you can no longer hide behind your husband. Contrary to what his delusional nonsense has to say, I’m not using you for fame. Granted, beating you WOULD put me on the map in this company in a big way considering that is what I truly and desperately want right now, but this isn’t primarily about that. This is about the crap you did to me in our last match. Yeah, maybe I won, but it was by disqualification when you tried to choke me. I’m not going to accept that. I am not going to accept an example being made out of me like that. This company, starting tonight, is going to know that I am serious business. I didn’t come here to be another Andi Lynx, another Mother Mavis or another run of the mill roster member. I came here to be among the best that this company has because as a two-time world champion in my own right, I KNOW I am capable of it.
You don’t get to make an example out of me and get away with it bitch!
Tonight, I return the favor… and I break out and no longer have to deal with being underutilized and treated like I’m just another roster member. Once I defeat you Veronica, I WILL prove that I am WAY more than that!
Chelsea maintains her angry determination as she exits the scene and the scene fades to black.
GRIME Tag Team Championship
2 Broke Chicks vs Angel of Filth and Skag
Filth and Skag rush the 2 Broke Chicks, sending them both through the ropes and on top of one of the dumpsters. They climb back outside to pull them off of the dumpster lid so that they can open them. In an attempt to win the titles in record timing, they hoist Chi Chi up and into the can. They go to do the same with Jane, but Jane begins clubbing heavily at their backs. Filth loses her grip, but Skag hoists Jane up to toss her inside. Once in, He grabs the lid to close it, but Chi Chi stuffs his face with what appears to be a half eaten burrito and empty wrappers. Jane throws the lid back and the two get out. Filth grabs hold of the burrito, taking a bite from it, she smashes the rest into Jane’s face. She tackles Jane, and both ladies go inside of the dumpster. Chi Chi pulls her bokken out of its sheath and begins smacking Skag with it. She backs him up against the barricade, and she pounces on him, toppling both competitors over the barricade and into the crowd. They roll around, trying to gain the advantage over the other. Skag gets on top and uses a folding chair to push down on her throat. Jane peeps this and tries to get out of the dumpster. Filth grabs onto her leg, and Jane moves around to kick Filth right in the face. She walks over to Skag and uses the barricade to knock him in the head. He tumbles over, and Chi Chi removes the chair from her throat. Filth collides with both now, pinning them under the barricade. Skag joins Filth as they stand on top, crushing 2 Broke Chicks underneath. Once both ladies stop fighting, Filth and Skag drag them over toward the dumpster. They toss them inside and go to close the lid. However, Jerry Cann and Kandy Kaine rush down. Jerry clobbers both as Kandy pushes the lid back. Skag hits a throat punch to Jerry while Filth gives the Black Mist to Kandy, as they bat at their faces. Dying Breed rush down and begin brawling with Filth and Skag. They go back and forth for about a minute until Skag and Filth duck stereo Superkicks, and they pull the ring steps apart, smacking both men in the heads with them as if it took little to no effort. After catching their breath, they go over to the dumpsters again. But before they can put the lid down, Javi and Omasa rush down and dump them inside of the dumpsters. 2 Broke Chicks are able to slowly climb out, being pulled out by Javi and Omasa toward the end. Omasa pulls out her bokken and shows Chi Chi how it’s done, knocking Filth and Skag across the face. Chi Chi and Jane throw the lid down in a hurry. 2 Broke Chicks win via double elimination. Javi and Omasa nod to each other as 2 Broke Chicks to celebrate. The lock the dumpster shut with a padlock. They wave down a trash truck that slowly backs up to lift the dumpster up, taking it with them as they go back through the curtains. 2 Broke Chicks jump on the back of the truck to ride it up the rampway and through the back.
The screen’s darkness is broken up by white flash. Merlot Ayano’s face can clearly be seen as the picture comes to life. There’s no smile on her face this time, just an intense and stoic expression.
Merlot Ayano: This is very special occasion. Fans will get to see the best champion in Sin City Underground fight the Underground Champion.
The SCU Combat Championship comes into play as Merlot hoists it onto her right shoulder.
Merlot Ayano: For over a year, Merlot has been conjuring magic in ring. Week after week, month after month, Merlot has defended Combat Championship against all challenges. Have defended own pride and honor against everyone. Have turned Combat Championship into one of most prestigious belts in all of professional wrestling.
She nods her head.
Merlot Ayano: Through all of SCU’s turmoil, the Combat Championship has been mighty symbol of stability. Same cannot be said for SCU Championship.
A look of disgust washes over her face as she shakes her head.
Merlot Ayano: When Merlot and other warriors were fighting for company’s survival, what were the SCU Champions doing? Lying and cheating. Bickering and squabbling. None of them seemed to give a damn about protecting SCU. And honestly? Merlot don’t believe Cordelia Clark doesn’t give damn about SCU right now. Underground Championship is a prop to her; always has been.
A moment passes.
Merlot Ayano: There are so many people who desire to be Underground Champion. They crave the challenge. They yearn for chance to represent the company in the greatest way. However, it always seems like people like Cordelia are in way. People who will pay for success, or achieve it in dubious ways.
She shakes her head.
Merlot Ayano: Cordelia? Merlot can’t wait to fight you tonight. Or more so, can’t wait to teach Cordelia a lesson or two. Merlot was SCU Superstar of Year in 2020. And truth be told, have been leading the charge for long time now. Cordelia? Will learn that just because you hold the Underground Championship, doesn’t mean you are best wrestler. Doesn’t mean you are face of company.
Merlot Ayano: That honor belongs to Merlot!
Chelsea LeClair vs Veronica Taylor
Chelsea and Veronica start with the two throwing open hand strikes. With each one landing half the punches, Chelsea tries to sneak in a closed fist but Veronica catches it and swipes the punch away. Veronica leans back and nails a front kick to the stomach of Chelsea. Chelsea blocks a second kick to her gut then follows it with a leg sweep to trip up Veronica but Veronica manages to stay on her feet. Veronica goes to kick Chelsea as she gets to her feet but misses as Chelsea drops to the mat again. Chelsea goes for another leg sweep and this one drops Veronica on her back. Chelsea does a kip up to get to her feet as the crowd cheers her. Veronica gets on all fours giving Chelsea an opening to kick her in the gut. Chelsea kicks Veronica in the side of the head. Chelsea grabs Veronica by the hair to get her to her feet. Veronica however nails Chelsea with a quick jab to the ribs then another. Veronica starts nailing Chelsea with open hand blows before nailing a hard closed fist that drops Chelsea to the mat. The ref warms Veronica about the closed fist. Veronica just smiles with a shrug to the crowd that gets boos from the crowd. She goes to finish it off with a Beauty Improvement Pass (Curb Stomp)! But Chelsea pushes her off and then gets to her feet. She trips Veronica up and then she locks on a Figure 4… only she converts it over to… TTFO (Tap The F*** Out) (Charlotte's Figure 8 )!!! Eventually, Veronica taps! (Chelsea LeClair wins via submission.) She doesn’t let go of the hold, so the bell rings again… and again… Finally, Chelsea lets go right before the referee threatens to reverse the decision. She steps back, looking at Veronica squirming on the ground, and she does a half smile. She holds her arms up in victory before leaving the ring.
The show cuts backstage to Morgan Clark who is beaming with an arrogant pride as she walks through the hallway. She has a “Team Merlot” custom made shirt on not giving a crap about how Cordelia might feel about it. Speaking of Cordelia, she ends up meeting her as soon as Morgan enters the catering area and needless to say, the SCU Underground Champion is none too happy with this whatsoever.
Morgan: What? Oh this shirt? Yeah, Team Merlot.
Cordelia rolls her eyes.
Morgan: Cordy, this isn’t an anti-Cordy thing. I’m trying to motivate you here.
Cordelia: Wearing a t-shirt that endorses my opponent is motivation? Are you serious?
Morgan: Hear me out on this, okay? Your first loss in SCU was to Merlot, was it not?
Cordelia: That wasn’t even a wrestling match. That was something that was completely out of my element.
Morgan: But STILL, you know. And while you have had losses to the likes of Ariana Angelos, at least you AVENGED THAT. But Merlot Ayano? Nah, you never did. So, I figured that by reminding you of this, you would get fired up and ready to defeat her this time in an environment that is FAR more your speed. It’s not a kickboxing match that gave her the advantage. It’s wrestling. You ARE a good wrestler. Besides, at least you weren’t given a repetitive opponent this time. Granted, with Merlot being the Combat champion, she isn’t in line for your title like I should be.
Cordelia just rolls her eyes at this.
Cordelia: You’re about to go on your spiel about “I should get the next shot at your title” aren’t you?
Morgan: Cordy, seriously. Answer the question this time. Is there anyone on the roster that deserves a shot at your title more than I do?
Cordelia: Hayley Halsey came up.
Morgan: WHO? Does she work for Sin City Underground? NO! Thank god for that by the way. Why should I give a crap about THAT opinion? She doesn’t work here. She will probably never work here. Next!
Cordelia: Amy Santino was also mentioned…
Morgan: She’s the GRIME champion. Therefore, this removes her from the conversation. Try it again, Cordy. One last time. Name ONE person on this roster besides those names, names that don’t even count to begin with by the way, that deserves the title shot more than I do. And you can’t name Halo Annis, Veronica Taylor, Angel Kash, Ariana Angelos and Helena Jeckel. You’ve faced them way too many times and should all be at the back of the line waiting. Come on Cordy, who do you have? Azurine Vebbins? The CLOWN of professional wrestling? Chelsea LeClair who hasn’t done ANYTHING in SCU despite her resume?
Cordelia: I am so sick of this…
Morgan: You act as if I care that you’re so sick of this.
Cordelia: Can you tell me what I’ve done to you that has made you treat me like this week after week? Can you name one thing? Because I’m really beginning to get sick and tired of being treated like this. I am starting to get sick and tired of this conversation week after week. It’s like you’re not going to stop until I put this title on the line against you.
Morgan: And why won’t you? Are you afraid?
Cordelia: I am not going to be forced into defending this title against my own sister. I’m not going to risk what we have for that.
Morgan: That sounds like someone that is scared to me.
Cordelia: You know what? I’m not going to feed into this crap. All you are doing is distracting me. I don’t need to deal with the distractions. Everything was going perfectly fine until you started to go on this selfish streak. Unless you actually have anything productive to say or unless you actually want to be supportive, then I have no reason whatsoever for even wanting to talk to you. I am done with this game, Morgan. I am through with having to put up with this. I have been the most dominant wrestler in SCU since I’ve been here and yeah, you’re damn right I am getting that win back against Merlot because I’m not going to let that stand on my record. So, go ahead. Keep talking your crap and keep campaigning for a title shot. From this point forward, I am officially ignoring this. Talk to me when you get over… whatever the hell it is that is making you have this constant ego trip…
Cordelia walks away from Morgan who doesn’t seem to know how to take this at first. However, she rolls her eyes and scoffs with amusement before the scene cuts out.
Hitamashii vs Javier Gonzalez
Javi and Hitamashii tie up in the center of the ring, but Javi stops long enough to start quickly slapping Hitamashii. This annoys Hitamashii, and he tries to go for a punch to the face. Javi ducks out of it and gets behind Hitamashii, hitting soft, playful jabs to the back. Hitamashii turns around, but Javi lifts him up into a High Angle Suplex. He hooks the leg, but only gets a one count. Javi tries to pin him again, but Hitamashii puts him over onto his stomach. He wraps his arm around Javi’s neck and lifts him up, bringing him down with a Bulldog. He picks him back up and whips him into the corner. He charges after with a back elbow. He digs the elbow in, using it to choke Javi. Javi tries to claw free, and eventually does. Javi grips onto Hitamashii’s hair and then jumps on his back, punching at the back of Hitamashii’s head. Hitamashii charges back into the corner, bucking into it multiple times until Javi lets go. He pushes his foot into Javi’s throat, leaving it there until the break is called for. After 4 seconds, he drops his leg, and then hits a high kick. He drops Javi with a stunner, and gets a two count. Javi springs up and tries to locks on a rear naked choke, but Hitamashii grabs Javi’s arms and brings him around into the Evil is Forever (This move sees the attacking wrestler behind a standing opponent, pulling them backwards into an inverted facelock and wrapping their legs around the opponent's body with a body scissors. The attacker then arches backwards, putting pressure on the opponent's neck and spine.) After a moment of this, Javi taps out. Hitamashii wins via Submission. He takes a few minutes to stomp on Javi until Omasa Tazu comes out. The two have a staredown before Hitamashii takes a few steps back. This is when Winter Elemental comes from behind and tries to clock Omasa, but Omasa ducks it and pulls out her bokken and strikes Winter twice. She goes down, and rolls to the outside with a smile on her face. Hitamashii joins her as Omasa helps Javi back to his feet.
Winter Elemental vs Omasa Tazu
After Hitamashii and Javi are both out of the ring, Javi goes after Hitamashii, not even giving him enough time to grab his championship belt. The two go back and forth as Winter plays with Omasa. Mercedes steps over the barricade to be in Winter’s corner. She applauds Winter for the mind games on Omasa, who stands inside looking unimpressed. The referee asks for her bokken back. Once Omasa finally gives it over and is distracted, Winter comes inside, trying to charge her from behind. Omasa ducks and flips Winter onto her back. She hits a couple stomps before lifting Winter up. She nails a few well timed chops, getting Winter into the corner. She charges at Winter, looking for a Superkick, but Winter ducks and lifts Omasa onto the apron. She comes off the opposite ropes and grabs onto the turnbuckle to lift herself up for a high kick to Omasa’s head, sending her to the ground. Omasa gets up just as Winter dives through the ropes with a Suicide Dive. Both ladies are down and out until the referee gets to a six count. Winter goes inside just to break the count, but Omasa is right after her. She drags Winter up by her hair and whips her head first into the corner seven times before Winter is able to roll outside again. Mercedes gives her a pep talk, but it is short lived as Omasa steps outside and chases Winter around the ring. Winter jumps up onto the ring steps and goes for a hard kick to the face, but Omasa catches her and drops her with an Electric Chair Slam. Omasa drags Winter back inside of the ring by the hair. She whips her over onto the ground and locks on Tonga Death Grip. Winter kicks her feet, trying to get out of it. However, Mercedes nonchalantly grabs Winter’s foot and puts it on the bottom rope. The referee warns Mercedes, but calls for the break. Omasa stands up and gets in the face of the referee. Winter recovers slowly, and stalks Omasa from behind. Javi, who has just sent Hitamashii into the barricade, busting it open in the process, shouts at Omasa to warn her. Winter charges Omasa and goes for a Superkick, but Omasa ducks, and the referee is hit. Winter turns around into Omasa Punch (Punch to throat). She covers winter, but there’s no referee to count. After a few seconds, another referee rushes down to ringside, sliding inside to count. However, due to the delay, Winter kicks out just before three. The fans go crazy for this, and Omasa is piiiiiiiiissed. She drags Winter up by the hair once more, but Winter nails the Blasted Slam (Olympic Slam) on Omasa. She then goes up top for A Splash of Insanity (450 Splash). She goes for the cover, and Javi tries to break it up, but Hitamashii nails a low blow on Javi, and Winter gets the three count. Winter Elemental wins via pinfall. Mercedes helps Winter out of the ring, as Omasa isn’t down for much longer. Hitamashii laughs as he disappears into the crowd with his Underground Championship. Omasa goes on the hunt as Javi tries to follow, ever so slowly from the pain.
The scene opens backstage at Underground where we see Ariana Angelos pacing around with a frown on her face, the young Greek-American woman clearly has a lot on her mind as she stops to address the camera.
Ariana: I bet a lot of people were wondering where I was last week, I didn’t show up on Underground or Climax Control after all.
Ariana comments before letting out a sigh.
Ariana: Honestly? There’s been one thing that’s been plaguing my mind since I lost the GRIME Championship Match at the High Stakes XI pre-show, what’s next for me? The last cycle saw me being used as a pawn in the feud between Krystal and Char Kwan on Climax Control and don’t get me wrong, I was elated to see Krystal not only retain the Roulette Title but win Future Star of the Year and Most Improved, and don’t get me started on her engagement!
Ariana grins a bit before shaking her head.
Ariana: I refuse to be a pawn in someone else’s game any longer! I’m a former Pride Tag Team Champion twice over, I have main evented episodes of Underground I even challenged Cordelia for the Underground Championship! I DESERVE BETTER THAN TO BE A PAWN!
Ariana takes several deep breaths as she runs a hand through her hair.
Ariana: But I guess I’ve gotten tossed to the wayside now that I’m no longer the youngest Go Gym Graduate on the roster right? Everyone’s paying attention to the French Chick because she had the balls to challenge Amber Ryan to a match after she had only competed in one match! Don’t get wrong, I love Adrienne, I think she’s a great person, but she’s in way over her head at this point in her career!
Ariana takes a step forward as she folds her arms.
Ariana: I will be overlooked no longer, next week I want the best that SCU can throw at me because I’m through playing games or being a pawn in someone else’s game! The Greek Angel is dead, in her place the Greek Goddess Ariana Angelos has arrived!
Ariana walks off as the scene fades.
Cordelia Clark vs Merlot Ayano
Cordelia and Merlot meet in the center of the ring, no respect shown between the two. Merlot bows anyway, but Cordelia kicks the side of her head. Merlot stumbles back, but throws punches back at Cordelia. Cordelia fires back, starting a series of punches and kicks. With each one landing half the punches, Cordelia fires one final, but Merlot catches it and twists her arm. She yanks downward and pulls Cordelia to the center of the ring. Merlot leans back and nails a front kick to the stomach of Cordelia. Merlot goes to kick Cordelia again as she gets to her feet but misses as Cordelia moves out of the way. Cordelia nails a Bicycle Kick to Merlot. She drops an elbow to the back of Merlot’s head. Cordelia get to her feet as the crowd boos her and chants Merlot’s name. Merlot blinks as she looks up at the lights. Cordelia grabs Merlot by the hair to get her to her feet. Merlot however nails Cordelia with a quick kick to the ribs then another. Merlot starts nailing Cordelia with open hand blows before nailing a hard closed fist that drops Cordelia to the mat. The ref warms Merlot about the closed fist. Merlot just smiles with a shrug to the crowd that gets a pop from the crowd. Cordelia holds her jaw as she gets to her feet. She demands the referee DQ Merlot for her actions but it doesn’t work. Cordelia dares Merlot to do it again, without skipping a beat Merlot decks her in the face again. The ref warns Merlot about the closed fist again but doesn’t DQ her which sends Cordelia up the wall. Cordelia gets in the face of the referee, Merlot turns the champion around and sends her to the ropes. Cordelia bounces off and gets met with yet a left hook from Merlot that sends Cordelia to the mat. Merlot goes for a cover, but to no avail. Two count, and Cordelia gets back to her feet. She is heavy on her feet. She challenges Merlot forward once more. Merlot nods and begins throwing kick after kick, following it up with a Discus Clothesline, but Cordelia ducks it and trips Merlot over the ropes. She is quick and precise when she goes for the Heartbreaker (Spinning double knee right into the chest/heart)! Before she can connect, Merlot rolls out of the way. Merlot turns just as Cordelia does, and she goes for the Eternal Burning (High Velocity Roundhouse (Standing/Kneeling Opponent), but Cordelia grabs her leg. Morgan comes over the barricade and up the ring steps. The referee tries to argue with her, but Morgan tries to get inside of the ring. Cordelia sees that Morgan has kicked her a bully club. She picks it up, and goes to strike Merlot with it in a last ditch effort to win. Merlot crosses her wrists, blocking the attack and she twists Cordelia’s arm, disarming her of the weapon. She kicks the club away, and she whips Cordelia toward Morgan. The referee moves out of the way, and Cordelia reverses the whip. Morgan reacts, clubbing Merlot as the referee immediately calls for the bell. Merlot Ayano wins via disqualification. Cordelia and Morgan stare at one another. Cordelia stomps and motions to Merlot. Morgan is expressionless at first. She then shrugs and steps down from the apron. She walks to the back as Cordelia is in awe as the show goes off the air.
