THIS MEANS WAR
"Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears."
- Laurence Binyon | "For the Fallen"
[Gradually the darkness fades away to open up with grainy footage of soldiers marching. Quick cut scenes interchange of soldiers saluting of various ranks. Then the famous scene of the US flag being raised on Iwo Jima. The suddenly... BOOM! Bombs exploding, missiles launched in rapid succession, and close range artillery fire race through as the beating of war drums increase in tempo. Finally, footage of an atomic bomb goes off, and the Guerrilla Warfare logo emerges through the plume of smoke.]
[We cut to inside Bridgestone Arena where Scumbag Society drummer Maxx Moon is standing center stage surrounded by several other drummers dressed up in various modern soldier uniforms to ancient warrior garbs from all across the world. The crowd is at a steady tone, waiting in anticipation. Finally, Maxx Moon kicks in with a slow and steady drum roll, as the other members join in. The drums increase in volume and tempo as fire erupts through the stage floor with each heavy bass hit. The camera angles begin to pan all throughout the arena to catch the rabid fans in attendance.]
[As the final camera angle swoops through the crowd, we venture over to our broadcast booth.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Ladies and gentlemen... Welcome to Guerrilla Warfare! We are live in Nashville, Tennessee at the Bridgestone Arena in front of a live sold out crowd of 20, 000 plus here tonight. Dick, tonight we have some big grudge matches scheduled here tonight, but the biggest bout of them all, is Guerrilla Warfare!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - The stipulations Axel Graves concocted for this battle royal style match is anything but. There are no over-the-top eliminations in this contest. Competitors will only be eliminated by pinfall, submission, or knock out! And the real kicker of this shitstorm, is that it's No disqualifications!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - At the end of the night, there will be blood! Speaking of, our feature headliner between Izumi Sato and Kira Izumi will be a Japanese Deathmatch!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - From what I've been told by the maintenance crew, they will be replacing the ring ropes with barbed wire that is hooked up to explode on contact! Someone may actually die tonight!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Also, don't forget the message Nemesis gave to Devereaux after his assistance to defeat Dillon Shaw, he expects an answer to his invitation offer tonight!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I get that these freaks are right up Devereaux's alley, but I don't know man, I just see "The Butcher" as a one man gang. I can't really see him joining forces. But they claim he's "the chosen one", so I don't know. If he had a crew of sideshows like this crew, he could hold on to that Union Battleground Championship for a very long time! I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Well if he doesn't accept their offer, then that one man gang may have to answer to the unholy four man gang! And keeping on the topic of Salvation, tonight we will finally see the in-ring debut of The Enforcer of Salvation, Sinister, take on the up-and-comer Tornado Desencadenado!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Tornado has been under the tutelage of Trixie, and in doing so has been battling members of Salvation. Tornado requested this match after Sinister planted him on his head, on bare concrete, and cost them their trios match against Nemesis, Camila, and Kreature. Tornado has been very impressive since entering the Battleground, but the uncertainty of Sinister may be the X factor in that fight.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And speaking of Tornado's partner Trixie, tonight she takes on her bitter rival that has spanned through two promotions in Anton Chase.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Trixie and Anton have battled four times, each earning two victories over one another. Tonight, we settle the score and bury the hatchet once and for all! Trixie came after Anton after he defeated her in their ladder match at Fallout, exclaiming that he defiled her Trixie belt. She said he devalued it after he just threw it at her after that match. She wants one more shot at him to validate her personalized title and show it has prestige.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And out final grudge match, ladies and gentlemen, is between Camila Martinez and Ashley Williams.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - This all started at Fallout when Sinister attacked Williams and caused her to lose her debut match. Since then, these two have gone back and forth with each other, and tonight they settle the score.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And folks, before we take it to the ring, we have some footage of earlier between Camila and Ashley; let's take a look...
[Backstage Ashley Williams is shown arriving to the Bridgestone Arena. She has her luggage on a wheel rack pulling it along with her. She enters the building, and upon entry, a human in a druid hoodie bashes her in the knee with a lead pipe.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Holy shit! That can only be one person...
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Tonya Harding?!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - No you pea brain, that's gotta be Camila Martinez!
[Camila Martinez pulls the hood down, revealing herself before continuing the attack on Ashley Williams. Officials and Battleground security members rush to the scene and separate the two. Camila continues with forearms and punches to Williams as she tries to get away.]
Camila Martinez - If I were a snake I would've bitten you! Hahahaha. Welcome to hell Ashley!
[Camila is pulled away kicking, screaming, and laughing maniacally as medics arrive to check on Ashley Williams.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - This is insane! She can't be fit to fight tonight!
tornado desencadenado VS sinister
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Making his way to the ring at this time, from unknown origins, standing 6'10" and weighing in at 285 pounds, "The Soul Collector" Sinister!
MAKE HIS FIGHT ON THE HILL IN THE EARLY DAY
CONSTANT CHILL DEEP INSIDE
[The arena goes black with the deep bells from the intro of “For Whom The Bell Tolls” echo through the arena, with each bringing a flash of blue and red strobe lights. As the guitars and drums kick in, the stage is now flashing red and blue while beginning to fill with smoke and from the back emerges Sinister with his finger tips touching and his thumbs crossed symbolizing an ‘A’ with his hands as he gets to the top of the ramp, stops for a moment, raises his arms outwards and tilts his head back spraying a red mist into the air. Sinister then continues on down the ramp with the remaining red liquid he sprayed out dripping down his face paint into his beard while the arena remains dark and the strobe lights follow Sinister to the ring, where he uses the steps to enter the ring, then heads to the middle of the ring and puts his hands back in the position of symbolizing an ‘A’ and lowers his head. When Sinister raises his head back up the music stops and the lights come instantly on.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Tonight we finally get to see the big man Sinister make his in-ring debut. This is a guy who's stood in the shadows and burrowed in the deep psyche of Camila Martinez. A man that haunts you day and night, and now inside the squared circle.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - This big man is a terror just to look at, I can't imagine what he's capable of inside that ring!
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - And his opponent, from Metairie, Louisiana, standing 6'2" and weighing in at 235 pounds, representing the Alpha Wrestling Empire, he is "The Spin Doctor" Tornado Desencadenado!
THEY FALL IN LINE, ONE AT A TIME, READY TO PLAY...
[The guitar riff to “Blow Me Away” cues up on the venue’s speakers. Tornado walks out from behind the curtain and does several “chain-breakers” warm ups. Afterwards he bounds back and forth across the stage; encouraging the fans to cheer louder. Tornado then jogs down the ramp, slapping any offered hands. When he reaches the ring apron he rolls inside, pops to his feet, and does a couple of spins around the center of the ring with his arms outstretched. Finally, he takes his right fist and thumps the left side of his chest three times.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Here he is, Dick, "The Ring Revolutionary" Tornado Desencadenado. This young blood has been on a roll since debuting and has really began to take some impressive strides.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - You're right, Dante. He's only suffered one loss in four contests, and that single defeat came at the hands of that man across the ring, Sinister.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - This is going to be an interesting case for each of these men. I can only assume Sinister has the strength advantage so Tornado may have to rely on his quickness and versatility to stay in this one.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - That's one thing Tornado excels at, he's an all-round technician but with his vast amounts of rotational maneuvers he's also very quick on his feet. He might put up a good fight, but Sinister just needs to get a good hold of him and it's over.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Alright folks, our referee for this matchup is Joe Murray, and he's calling for the bell!
[Tornado rolls with the shoulder block and rises back to his feet to warily eye down a laughing Sinister. The crowd is into this one as Tornado rolls his neck and gets back to bouncing on his feet as Sinister slowly circles the opposite direction. Sinister moves in for a tie-up but TD is having none of it, ducking swiftly under Sinister’s arms, spinning around to face Sinister’s back and slamming a stiff kick into Sinister’s lower back that staggers the big man and TD follows up with a quick and fancy spinning neckbreaker then follows in for the cover!]
... Kick out!
[Kickout by Sinister who doesn’t seem as fazed by the attacks as Tornado would like. Tornado rises to his feet, dragging Sinister up to his feet only to be checked with a strong back elbow that doubles TD over. Sinister shakes off the earlier TD offense and sets TD up for a double underhook clutch and slams TD down with a powerful DDT that rattles the ring!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - That DDT had some major impact!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - The ring shook, and probably Tornado's brain, too!
[Sinister drags TD up to his feet and lays a series of stiff strikes into TD’s upper body that staggers him backward then moves to whip him from the ropes, but instead of releasing him Sinister drops TD down with a wicked clothesline then goes for the cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Short-range closeline is not enough to put Tornado away!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Desencadenado is a fighter. It's going to take more than that to put him away.
[A kickout by Tornado has the crowd pop at the sight of the seemingly perennial optimist rising from a near-fall. Sinister drags him back to his feet and slams a series of knife-edge chops loud enough for the crowd to recoil from them. The third such strike, however, TD ducks letting Sinister stumble forward and TD puts his back into it and SLAMS Sinister down with a hard-hitting gutwrench suplex that he follows up with a cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Another early pin attempt but it's to no avail.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - It still takes a lot of energy to kickout from these pin attempts. It's a smart move to make the cover when the opportunity arises.
[Sinister with a kickout that has TD almost instantly up to his feet, dragging Sinister behind him only to find himself staring the bigger man down. Sinister’s recovery is reasonably shocking, and so is the sudden strike that staggers TD backward. Another strike from Sinister and he follows that up with a powerful choke bomb into a pin!]
[Kickout from TD, but his cheering section isn’t as enthused as Sinister drags TD back to his feet and irish whips him for the corner and charges in with a strong forearm that drops TD down to a seat in the corner. Then Sinister slams some knees into TD before dragging him back to his feet and slamming him down into the canvas with a spinning spine buster only TD manages to shift the momentum and take Sinister down with an arm drag instead!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Good counter arm drag by Tornado.
[Sinister is on his feet glaring down TD who rushes him and drops Sinister with an impressive dropkick! Supercharged, the crowd on its feet, Tornado has Sinister up and whipping him once more for the ropes and on the rebound downs the big man with a tornado DDT!]
[Both men are down for a breather… chests heaving before they both start to sit up.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Tornado DDT!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Sound the alarm!
[Tornado slowly gets to his feet first, while Sinister is not far behind. Desencadenado catches him with several forearms to the back of the head and shoulders to keep him off guard. TD locks up with Sinister and whips him into the ropes, but Sinister reverses and instead TD goes ricocheting and on the return, Sinister executes a tilt-a-whirl and catches Tornado in a tombstone position!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Sinister has stuck him! He's got him in the tombstone position!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Tornado is about to be a Casualty Count!
[The crowd begins to jeer as Sinister looks on with a disturbing expression. "The Soul Collector" begins to spin around, almost giving Tornado a taste of his own medicine. After about four rotations, Tornado suddenly kicks his legs forward and causes Sinister to bridge back, and now Tornado is on his feet with Sinister upside down!]
The Doctor" Dante Reed - Are you kidding me?!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Rotations are Tornado's specialty, Dante! Sinister fell right into Tornado's realm!
[Tornado now lifts the big man up on his shoulder and begins spinning himself! The crowd begins to erupt as Tornado springs off the balls of his feet, sending SinisTer high in the air. Tornado drops to his back and Sinister comes crashing down on a double knee gutbuster! Tornado hooks the leg for a cover!]
... No! Sinister kicks out!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - I can't believe it! Sinister somehow kicks out of the Vertigone!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - My god, Dante! I think Tornado has just woken the beast!
[Both men lie motionless on the ground, both looking completely exhausted of energy. Suddenly, Sinister jolts straight up, and the crowd reacts with boos! Sinister gets to his feet, and picks Tornado straight up off his feet by his neck! Sinister begins wailing with heavy rights, backing Tornado into the ropes. Sinister Irish whips Tornado across the ring and on the return Sinister throws a massive big boot, but Tornado ducks! Tornado bounces again off the ropes and comes back with a corkscrew forearm smash!]
The Doctor" Dante Reed - The Cyclone Smash!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Sinister hit the mat like a ton of bricks! I think he's out!
[Tornado falls on top of Sinister and hooks the leg for a cover!]
[DING DING DING!]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, Tornado Desencadenado!
The Doctor" Dante Reed - I can't believe it! Tornado pulled off the win against the towering Sinister!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - It's a miracle! Ole young blood sealed the victory, but I can't imagine this one will be over after tonight!
The Doctor" Dante Reed - The members of Salvation are a vengeful bunch, you're right, Dick. I have to agree with you, this one may just be warming up! Well coming up, is another member of Salvation getting her chance to go 2-up as Camila Martinez squares off against Ashley Williams!
Ashley Williams vs Camila Martinez
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Portland, Oregon, standing 5'4" and weighing in at 110 pounds, Camila Martinez!
WELL SWEET LITTLE SISTA'S HIGH AS HELL,
CHEATING ON A HALO,
GRIND IN AN ODYSSEY, A HOLOCAUST,
A HEART KICKING ON TOMORROW
[The opening rift of Thunder Kiss 65 begins to play and the fans erupt with jeers as Camila Martinez strides to ring side. She's the same hot headed Mila, talking trash to fans, knocking pop corn out some kid's hand, ripping a sign, etc. Camila loves to be hated and she shows it with her actions as she heads toward the ring. She walks up the steps and gives a fan at ringside "the bird" before entering the ring and awaiting her opponent.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - The woman with many aliases, Camila makes her way to ringside. She's had a pretty impressive start to her Union Battleground career, with a 4-2 record.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Yeah but if you've noticed, she's coming out here solo, no Sinister by her side. I guess Tornado must have bruised more than his ego earlier!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Well let's hope so. This is how this grudge match all started. Sinister interfered in Ashley Williams' debut match against Camila Martinez at the Fallout PPV, to which Williams was, for a lack of better words, pissed off! So the two have had a back and forth attacks and ambushes.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Speaking of ambushes, I wonder if Ashley Williams will even appear now. She got ambushed by Mila earlier today. Even if she does, she won't be 100%.
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - And her opponent, from Monmouth, New Jersey, standing 5'6" and weighing in at 117 pounds, "The Future of Female Wrestling" Ashley Williams!
[As Gold and Red lights and lasers begin to emanate around the arena, the first verse of P!nk’s Trouble begins to blare out around the arena as the fans begin to give out a very mixed reaction. ]
TO PLEAD MY CASE
TO SEND ME INTO OUTTA SPACE
[As the chorus hits, Ashley Williams runs out, her face concealed by an oversized hood, stopping in the center of the ramp to raise one hand in the air before throwing off the hood, smiling out at the assembled crowd before making her way down the aisle. Ashley climbs up the steel steps before making her way along the ramp facing apron raising her arm again with a loud yell before stepping through the ropes where she proceeds to remove her hoodie, revealing her wrestling gear underneath.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Well Ashley Williams is in fact going to square off. She is hobbling around noticeably which will certainly be a factor and a disadvantage for her.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - She may be down, but she ain't out! She's a fighter, and she's got a lot to prove tonight. She's out here pretty much sending out her resume. Both the XHW and DARC closed their doors within days of each other, where she was the World Champion and DARC Horse Champion, respectively. So even though she's at a disadvantage right out of the gate, she's still going to give it everything she has!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Alright folks, our official for this matchup is Joe Murray, and he checks on each woman on last time and calls for the bell!
[Camila and Ashley meet at center ring for a lock up that Camila quickly comes out of with a stiff kick to Ashley’s midsection doubling over and Camila plants her down hard into the canvas face first with a sitout facebuster. Mila isn’t done, quickly dragging Ash up to her feet and slamming her right back down to the canvas with a snap DDT and then goes for the quick cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Camila Martinez is firing right out of the gates!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - She's got something to prove out here too, Dante. That she doesn't need Sinister out here to help her gain a victory over Williams!
[Ashley Williams quickly kicks out, and Camila Martinez grips her by the hair and forces her up to her feet and lays a series of stiff shots into Ashley’s midsection before angrily tossing her into the nearby corner turnbuckle then grips the doubled-over Ashley Williams and angrily, pulls her from the corner and angrily tugs her around and then drives her shoulder right back into the corner turnbuckle!]
[Camilla delivers a series of stiff kicks to Ashley’s mid section then grabs hold of her from behind and SLAMS her down to the canvas with a belly to back suplex! Camilla goes another cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Camila is keeping the pressure on Ashley!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Her aggression has been fueling her so far in this match, and it clearly shows.
[Ashley kicks out, but with less strength than previously and Camilla is up to a seat looking a bit more dastardly as she recognizes Ashley is getting winded from the onslaught. Camila drags her once more to her feet and lays a series of stiff chops into Ashley and laughingly tosses her towards the corner! Mila charges in after her only to be surprised as Ashley leap frogs up and behind Mila who is suddenly trapped within the corner and finds herself on the receiving end of a flurry of strikes from a rejuvenated Ashley Williams!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Williams is not on the attack!
[The crowd is on its feet as Ashley is laying lefts and rights catching Mila off guard and about to go for a roundhouse kick but Mila luckily ducks the strike and surprises Ash with an rotating exploder suplex sending Ash crashing across the canvas!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - My god, what tenacity!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Camila just delivered a textbook exploder suplex!
[The assault from Ashley clearly did some damage as Mila staggers for Ash at first, finally gaining her footing once more and moving in for the cover only to be surprised with a sudden roll-up!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Wow Ashley Williams just about caught Camila Mattinez off guard with that roll-up!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Mila better be careful, Williams has the ring awareness equal to some of the top veterans of this business.
[Camilla kicks out and looks stunned as Ashley rolls to the ropes and wrenches herself to a knee looking pained from the match up to this point but ready to defend herself. Mila rises to her feet watching as Ashley does as well and soon the two meet once more in center ring for another collar-and-elbow tie up. Ashley drives in a stiff knee to the midsection and whips Martinez into the ropes. Camila springboards off of the ropes and catches Williams with a hurricanrana! Camila quickly gets to her feet and signals the end! Camila grabs Ashley's leg and locks in a modified Gorilla Clutch!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Call the Crisis Hotline!
[Ashley screams in excruciating pain but tries to fight it off. She ignores the referee entirely as she begins to army crawl her way over to the ropes! Williams inches and inches her way until she's within reach, but Camila drags her back before Williams can grip the rope! Mila tows Ashley square in the center of the ring, and drops to her hips and now locks in a body scissors on top of the Crisis Hotline!] Ashley tries fighting it off and swimming her way out, but it's of no use, she taps out!]
[DING DING DING!]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, Camila Martinez!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Camila Martinez displayed an impressive performance here tonight!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Agreed. And she did it all on her own, no members of Salvation here to help!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Folks stick around, coming up next we have the final chapter between Trixie and Anton Chase!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - This is the end of an era. The bitter feud ends here tonight!
[We cut backstage to see the New Ace of Pro Wrestling herself, Saint Saito--already dressed in her ring gear, a red and gold robe over a black #SaitoClan t-shirt and wrestling shorts of the same colours--texting and/or tweeting on her phone as she walked the hall. She has a blank, almost disinterested expression on her painted face, like she was waiting around for the more interesting stuff to happen, like the promised carnage of Guerrilla Warfare. She passes by a small group of event staff, ignoring them as she played with her phone. Suddenly, Union Battleground's correspondent Savannah Skye appears out of nowhere--like she was some kind of wizard, or something--and then steps in front of the New Ace to try and get an interview.]
Savannah Skye: Saito? Saint Saito, can I have a moment of your time to ask you a couple quick questions?
[Saito slows her pace to a halt, staring at the other woman with the look of boredom on her face for a few more seconds before giving her a very blunt, Saitoesque answer.]
Saint Saito: Damare, kono bakayarou.
[And with that, Saito continues to walk the hall, her attention back to her phone even as Savannah followed her.]
Savannah Skye: Excuse me?
[Saito stops and stares at her again, this time looking more annoyed with her than bored.]
Saint Saito: ...Means, 'no.' God, read a book!
Savannah Skye: Um...Saito, I'd like to ask you about Guerrilla Warfare. You've said before...um...Saito?
[Saito's eyes quickly narrowed. She stands there, silently glaring daggers at the UB reporter until the silence became awkward for Savannah.]
Saint Saito: Look, I'm in the middle of something more important than talking with you, baka--these meaningless cat tweets don't tweet themselves, you know!
Savannah Skye: But I just--
Saint Saito: What part of "Damare, kono bakayarou" do you not understand!? Did I accidentally paint "Annoy me!" across my forehead? No. So...vanish, wizard.
[Saito shakes her head with disdain, and then walks off on Savannah. The camera zooms in and focuses on the reporter, who wore an understandably confused look on her features.]
Savannah Skye: ..."Wizard??"
trixie vs anton chase
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall, introducing first, standing at 5'6" tall and representing Redemption Wrestling, Trixie!
I'M ON MY SECOND DRINK, BUT I'VE HAD A FEW BEFORE
[Trixie comes out, and does a twirl to bend over and showcase her firm apple bottom to the crowd while showing off her Trixie Championship. She then turns around to flaunt her ring attire and bites her finger as she pauses on stage. She starts walking in a straight line down the ramp to really sway her hips and get the attention of the guys in the crowd, blowing kisses at the guys and enjoying the jealousy of the girls in the crowd. She steps onto the apron and gyrates her hips while raising the Trixie Championship, before stepping into the ring very slowly to allow all the photos to be taken, then stepping fully in and giving a playful wink to the referee as she sits on the corner with the belt draped over her shoulder.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – This has been deemed as the “Final Chapter” between these two fierce rivals Dick, I can’t wait to see how it plays out!
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – I sure hope this isn’t the final time we get to see those cans of hers live, up close and in action!
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – And her opponent, from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 210 pounds, also representing Redemption Wrestling as well, he is "The Wrestling God" Anton Chase!
NIGHTFALL AND THE DAY BEGINS,
I NEED THE BRIGHT CITY LIGHTS AS I START TO DESCEND
[As "How We Roll" by Hollywood Undead blasts over the PA system, white smoke fills the entrance and two people are seen behind the white smoke. The first person steps forward in front of the white smoke revealing "The Wrestling God" Anton Chase as the second person emerges behind him, which is his manager Chris Wood. Anton Chase makes his way down the ramp, with a cocky smile on his face and his arms out at the side with Chris Wood following behind him. Chase climbs in the ring and then climbs the second ropes and puts one hand up in the air, and stares off as he awaits his opponent while Chris Wood takes his position outside the ring.]
‘The Doctor” Dante Reed – These two have quite the history not only in Redemption Wrestling but now here in Union Battleground since we opened our doors.
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – You can’t deny it’s been one of our longest running battles Dante…Trixie is even on her second protégé in this feud, how convenient that they were both men!
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – What are you implying Dick?
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – That while we may see her in action rolling around in the ring, these young male protégés must be rolling around with her in the sack behind the scenes, lucky bastards! I’ll let her teach me a thing or two!
[Franklin Dean signals for the bell and we begin with the two locking up and Anton easily overpowering Trixie into a wristlock and then arm drags Trixie down to the mat quickly. Anton bounces off the ropes and comes off delivering a low dropkick to the back of Trixie’s head as she was just starting to get up from the sitting position.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – Quick start here for Anton Chase!
[With Trixie lying flat on her stomach, Anton turns around and hits a standing reverse moonsault to a loud pop from the crowd. Anton then rolls Trixie over quickly and goes for the cover.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – Great standing moonsault by Anton but Trixie kicks out of the early pinfall attempt!
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – He’s gotta stay on top of her here Dante, I mean who wouldn’t want too?
[Anton kicks Trixie in the ribs a few times before heading over to the turnbuckles, which he climbs to the top. Anton waits for Trixie to get up and flies off, attempting a missile dropkick but Trixie manages to barely roll out of the way causing Anton to land on his side hard.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – Big miss by Anton Chase with the missile dropkick!
[As Anton tries to recover, Trixie has begun to move in and is stomping away at Anton Chase. After about ten of them, Trixie plays to the crowd by blowing a kiss and then hits Anton unexpectedly with the Sexy Leg Drop. Trixie follows up quickly with a pin attempt of her own.]
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – As much of a smoke show as Trixie may be, she’s not going to beat Anton that easily…unless again, like her protégés, it’s in the sack!
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – What kind of facts do you have to substantiate these claims of Trixie using her protégés as sex slaves Dick?
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – I hear things from people who know people Dante, what are you? A cop?
[Trixie wastes no time, trying not to let Anton recover by stomping the hell out of Chase a little more. She grabs Anton by the hair and lifts him up to his feet but he pushes her back a few feet. Trixie steps back in and ducks a quick right from Anton, kicks him in the gut, blows a quick kiss his way and nails Anton with a thunderous stunner that sends Anton to the mat but he rolls out of the ring to avoid a pin attempt.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – Smart, veteran move by Anton Chase there to get out of further harm’s way!
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – He’s gotta get the momentum swung back his way somehow here Dante!
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – You’re right Dick! After that quick start by Anton Chase, it’s been all Trixie here!
[Trixie complains to Franklin Dean that Anton is just delaying but instead, Dean shakes her off and begins the ten count. Trixie, not wanting to win that way, rolls out but Anton was playing possum by punching her in the gut, stands up and tosses her into the barricade which gives Anton time to recover.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – Anton was playing her Dick!
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – Call it what it was Dante, another smart veteran move by “The Wrestling God”!
[Anton backs away from Trixie whose beginning to get up in front of the barricade until he’s a good distance from her. As Trixie gets up, Anton runs full force, jumps up landing on Trixie’s shoulders, spins her around and Hurricanrana’s her back into the barricade.]
HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – My God! Anton may have broke Trixie in half with that Hurricanrana!
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that before! Should I go give her mouth-to-mouth just to be safe??
[Anton slowly gets to his feet but after he does he lifts Trixie up and rolls her lifeless body into the ring. Anton climbs the turnbuckle again as Trixie is yet to move but pauses when he gets to the top.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – What is Anton Chase thinking here?
[Anton then proceeds to get soar off the top turnbuckle with a great deal of height and comes down on Trixie, hitting a perfect Shooting Star Press which has so much impact that Chase comes off of Trixie’s body. He then crawls back over and makes the pin as Franklin Dean gets in place for the count.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – She kicked out! She kicked out! She kicked out!
“”Diamond” Dick Thrasher – How Dante?!?! How!?!
[The replay shows Anton’s beautiful Shooting Star Press, followed by the cover and that Franklin Dean’s eye caught Trixie getting her shoulder about a half of an inch off the mat as we come back to Anton Chase face-to-face with Dean about the pinfall attempt. As they argue, Trixie has come to and made her way over behind Anton and rolls him up for a quick pin attempt.]
[Anton kicks out and looks all flustered. He quickly reacts by coming at Trixie with a running clothesline that Trixie ducks, she grabs the back of Chase’s head immediately and hits a perfectly executed neckbreaker. Trixie now bends forward, waiting for Anton to once again get up. As soon as he does, he stumbles and turns around into a Spicy Superkick that cracks through the arena. With Anton down Trixie begins rubbing her leg and winking towards the crowd.]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – Trixie playing to the crowd after taking Anton’s head off with that Spicy Superkick!
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – Get up Anton! You can’t let this extremely beautiful, questionably moral woman beat you!
[Trixie is now backed up into the corner, once again bent forward and waiting for Anton to start moving. Anton pulls himself to both feet, Trixie moves in quickly and again targets the head, this time crushing Chase’s skull with her Shining Wizard variance]
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – The Shining Apprentice! This could be all she wrote for Anton Chase!
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – No! It can’t be Dante!
[Trixie rolls Anton’s limp body onto his back, hooks the legs and covers as Franklin Dean counts.]
[Franklin Dean calls for the bell as Trixie stands up in pain raising her arms in victory. Dean hands her the Trixie Championship, which she raises high as Dean holds her free arm up in victory.]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, Trixie!
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – Trixie’s done it Dick! She’s beaten Anton Chase and added some much need validity to the Trixie Championship!
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – I guess so! I'm sure she's made her protégé proud tonight, both earning victories at this big event!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Folks stick around as our crew staff readies the ring for our featured match-up, Izumi Sato versus Kira Izumi in a Japanese Deathmatch! Stay tuned!
izumi sato vs kira izumi
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following match is scheduled for one fall, and it is a Japanese Deathmatch! Introducing first, from Kyoto, Japan, standing 5'2" and weighing in at 116 pounds, representing the Neon Generation Independent Wrestling, "The Pure Heart Warrior" Izumi Sato!
"FLYING LIGHT" BY YASUHARU TAKANASHI BEGINS TO PLAY
[A dragon roars, leading straight into "Flying Light" by Yasuharu Takanashi as white and hot pink lights flash to the beat of the tune. The curtains then part, as the "Pure Heart Warrior" Izumi "Dragon" Sato steps out, donning a short-sleeved white "Dragon Sato" t-shirt over her usual ring gear. There she steps to the right side of the aisle way down, launching her left arm up and out while slapping a hand to her heart twice in rapid succession. Then she turns and walks to the crowd on the left side of the aisle, forming a heart with her fingers, a huge smile on her lips before she marches down the aisle, slapping as many hands as she can before arriving at ringside. There she ascends the ring steps and slips through the ropes, immediately going to her corner for final preparations before pulling her t-shirt off revealing her outfit of choice for the night.]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - And her opponent, from Shinhidaka, Hokkaido, Japan, standing 6' even and weighing in at 200 pounds, representing Full Intensity Wrestling, accompanied by Kirito Izumi, Kira Izumi!
SABITA KUSARI NIJIMU NAMIDA TO
NAGEKI AGEMASHOU JIYUU WO
KOBAMU ASHI WO HIROGE
KANJITA ZAIAKU, GANBOU, YOWASA, KURUINAKU
[The opening riffs begin as we pan around the arena and soon focus on the stage.We see rain falling from high up as chains drop just below the BattleTron. Kira walks out holding his bokken. He walks through the rusted chains and stands in the "rain" with Kirito following behind him. He lifts his bokken up and waves it across the arena. He walks down the ramp glaring at fans and at his opponent. He walks around the Arena before he jumps onto the barricade and stares and intimidates the near by fans before jumping down and walks up the steps and slaps the apron before jumping over the ropes and climbing to all four corners of the ring. He hops down before banging his head on the top turnbuckle ten times and pulling his head back to a bridge on the mat while simultaneously spitting out blood mist. He rolls over to all fours before creeping into a sitting position into his corner.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Kira Izumi to his feet, and here we go!
[The two Izumis circle each other in the center of the ring. Sato quickly goes behind and locks in a rear waist lock, but Kira rocks her with a vicious back elbow that staggers her back a pace. Kira then turns, and starts unloading on her with a wild kick barrage to the legs, body, arms, and even head. The assault nearly sends Sato into the barbed-wire, but she puts on the breaks just in time.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Close call there. Izumi Sato was almost the first person to experience that horrendous exploding barbed-wire.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - She's got only so many lives though. It won't be long though before Kira gets her to take the plunge. Something tells me that's the whole idea anyway.
[Sato turns back toward Kira, who moves in before she can mount an attack, and forces her to bend backwards, determined to go into the barbed-wire. Sato's face and hair get closer and closer to the wire, but she struggles with all her might to fight him off, finally shoving Kira away several steps. Taking a deep breath, Sato charges. Kira side steps her, nearly sending her into the barbed-wire again if not for the fact that Sato dropped to her knees and slid the last foot or so before coming to a stop just in time.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Another near miss by Izumi Sato, but Kira Izumi comes in after her, stomping at her head, trying everything he can to get her into the wire!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Sato's still resisting him despite the pain, but she won't resist forever.
[Kira picks Sato up, but immediately locks in an abdominal stretch, driving elbows down into Sato's side as she cries out in pain. Kira then picks her up and instantly transitions into an equally painful backbreaker variation.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Abdominal stretch to backbreaker, and Kira Izumi with the early pin!
[He hooks the leg as the ref slides into position, checks Sato's shoulders, and begins to count.]
... Kick out!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - But Sato kicks out of that very early pin attempt.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - It's smart though, making Sato expend that little bit of energy to kick out.
[Rising to his feet, Kira calls to Kirito, who tosses him a sickle on a chain. Kira begins to cut at Sato's face - causing to both bleed and scream in agony at the same time. In her desperation though, Sato manages to score with a low blow causing Kira to drop the sickle and fall to the mat in pain. Sato rises to her feet and picking up the sickle - raising it to the crowd to a mix of cheers and boos before she began to whip Kira with the chain. Kira rolled around, trying to get out of range, but almost rolled right off the apron onto those beds of exploding barbed-wire in the process.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Watch out, Kira!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Very close there, but Kira Izumi realized the danger he was in, and put a stop to that!
[Izumi drops the chain, realizing the predicament he's in, and runs over to deliver a low dropkick to his side, determined to push him off the apron into those waiting beds. Kira inches over, but hangs on for dear life, so Sato gets back up and does the maneuver again. Kira moves another inch or two, clenching at the ring's framework in a desperate effort to keep from going over. So instead, Sato just remains on the mat, and starts to kick/push at Kira with her feet, still trying to push him off into those beds of barbed-wire.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - You're gonna have to do more than that if you want him to go down on you, darlin'.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Dick!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Well it's true!
[Realizing her efforts so far have been futile, Sato pulls Kira to his feet and away from the apron a bit. But Kira connects with a boot to the gut surprising Sato, before applying a standing headscissors and hoisting her up onto his shoulders.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Powerbomb!
[At the last second, Kira turns toward the open side of the ring and throws Sato down.]
[Sparks fly and smoke fills the ringside area as the crowd jumps to their feet in unison.]
"HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!"
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Powerbomb into those beds of exploding barbed-wire!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I told you she'd go first!
[The ref begins to count her out as Izumi lays motionless in the tangled wires. Then, slowly, she begins to pull herself up - the wire clinging to her clothes and flesh. As she starts pulling herself up onto the apron again, Kira pounces, pulling her up all the way before locking in a rear waistlock and launching Sato over his head with a German suplex. Keeping it locked in though, he rolls her over and back to her feet, before switching to a full nelson and executing a dragon suplex. Kira rolls her over and back to her feet a third time, pulling Sato's arms behind her back for a perfect tiger driver that he bridged for another cover.]
... Th-- Kick out!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - No! Only two, but that was a close one! Izumi Sato snuck her arm up at the last second!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - It won't be long now before Kira has her beat!
[It seems that Kira is thinking along the same lines, as he rises to his feet and starts sizing Sato up, waiting for her to get back to her feet. It takes her a moment, but soon she starts to pull herself up. Then Kira charges.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - The Final! No!
[Sato ducks at the last second, forcing Kira to readjust mid-flight.]
[The barbed-wire "ropes" explode in more sparks and smoke. Kira is draped halfway in and halfway out of the wires, tangled between and around them as the crowd once again erupts in unison.]
"HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!"
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And now it's Kira's turn to taste that unforgiving exploding barbed-wire!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Damnit! Sato got lucky!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - What, no wisecracks this time?
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Shut it, Reed.
[Meanwhile, Izumi Sato slowly rises to her feet, realizing the predicament Kira is currently in. Her viridian eyes flare with a darkness we haven't seen before, as she places a knee on his back for leverage, then begins to use a length of the barbed-wire to quite literally rip the mask from Kira's face. The fans and Kira Izumi alike cry out as the wire not only starts to pry the mask from his face, but also the wire itself starts ripping at his flesh. Kira lets out a blood-curdling howl of agony.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Oh shit! Not only is she gonna' take the mask off, but she's gonna' take his face with it!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Stop this, Izumi! This is going way too far! Don't let the Darkness control you!
[As if hearing Dante's words, Sato suddenly stops her efforts, relinquishing her grip on the barbed-wire that has by now cut deep gashes in her own hands. She takes several steps back, looking down at her own bloody hands for several long moments while the ref helped Kira from the wire. Sato points at Kira, before moving toward him and picking him up only to grab him by the arm for an Irish whip. Kira puts the breaks on at the last second, so Sato charges in with the Bullet Rush. Kira evades that, but Sato manages to stop herself just in time to avoid the barbed-wire ropes as well. Then Kira leaps.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Pele kick!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - No! Sato rolls underneath it! Fires back with the Uraken!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - But Kira ducks that, and back body drops Sato!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Only Izumi Sato lands on her feet on the apron, just narrowly missing all that fresh unused barbed-wire roping!
[Kira is quick to react again though, grabbing her by the neck, and yanks her up, over, and through the barbed-wire.]
"HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!"
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Holy fuck!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Lifting ragon screw neck whip, and we just witnessed a full body destruction, as Izumi Sato's whole body ate that explosion!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Kira Izumi was way too close to escape unscathed though!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Both of them are down, Sato completely tangled in that barbed-wire!
[Shaking the cobwebs as best he can, Kira rolls Sato over.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Holy shit, Sato is fuckin' SHREDDED! Head to toe, man!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Kira Izumi with the pin!
[The ref slides into position.]
... Thre-- KICK OUT!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - NO! NO! Somehow, someway, Izumi Sato managed to roll her shoulder up yet again!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - And Kira Izumi can't believe it! What does he have to do to this girl to put her away?!
[Fatigued and bleeding all over himself, Kira rises to his feet and signals that he's going to finish this. He picks Sato up, who can barely stand under her own power, and locks her arms in a double underhook, before lifting her up.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - I think we're about to find out!
[At the apex, he brings Sato down violently on the back of her head.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Schizzofranic Sensation! No way she's kicking outta' that!
[Whereas the last time he utilized a standard lateral press, this time Kira makes sure to hook the leg too.]
[DING DING DING!]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, Kira Izumi!
[Kira Izumi gets his hand raised in victory by the referee and his wife, Kirito. As the ref lowers his arm, he looks over to the fallen Sato. Beaten, bloodied, bruised, and burned, he talks over top of her and kneels down close. Suddenly, the lights shut off! After a moment, the lights come back on, and the ring is completely empty!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - What... What just happened?!
[We cut to the dark and dreary setting of the boiler room in the depths of the Bridgestone Arena where we here the loud and booming voice of Nemesis speaking. As the camera quickly cuts through the smoke and mist that’s been created by the boilers, we come upon Camila Martinez, Sinister, Kreature and Preacher standing around Nemesis, locked in on his every word.]
Nemesis: We must be prepared for any and all repercussions that we may face depending on the scenario that presents itself tonight. We have made enemies lately and although our numbers outmatch them whether it be against a tag team or a singular wrestler….but they may all be in the ring standing against us depending on who Axel chooses to send out to the ring and when…
Kreature: What if he doesn’t choose any of us to compete?
Nemesis: Impossible…tonight we are facing destiny. The fate of Union Battleground weighs heavily on this match and these human peons have not the slightest inkling of what the results of Guerilla Warfare mean to this company’s fate which is what gives us the upper hand…while they each think of themselves because they don’t know any better…you all do, as I have guided you by showing you ‘the bigger picture’ and what it means for not only Union Battleground…but the world!
Sinister: And what of Dick Devereaux?
[Nemesis pauses for a moment before looking Sinister dead in the eyes]
Nemesis: I fully expect that he has seen the light….that he has found the way and wishes to be led down the path to Salvation…
Mila: And if he hasn’t?
[Nemesis grits his teeth but calms himself by caressing the face of Camila Martinez, showing a rare side we didn’t think he had]
Nemesis: Then…my ‘Black Rose’…we will destroy him…his life…and everything, as well as everyone, in this world that he cares about…
[Nemesis sadistic laughs echoes throughout the boiler room as Camila smiles at the thought of causing torment and destruction as we cut back to Dante Reed and Dick Thrasher who are ringside]
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – Are you a religious man Dante? Because if you are starting praying that Nemesis, that lunatic, doesn’t win tonight!
“The Doctor” Dante Reed – And if I’m not a religious man Dick?
“Diamond” Dick Thrasher – Then you better become one real quick with that freak lurking around here!
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is tonight's main event! This is Guerrilla Warfare!
[The crowd erupts into cheers as Dempsey allows a moment for the audience to react.]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The rules for Guerrilla Warfare are as follows: Two competitors will start off inside the ring, and every 90 seconds a new competitor will enter the ring. Eliminations will only be by pinfall, submission, or knock out. And best of all, it is No Disqualifications!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Absolute anarchy is about to ensue! As you can see, our Union Battleground Champion Dick Devereaux is sitting on a throne off of the side of the main stage.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - The Champ's got the best seat in the house. I got my popcorn ready!
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The final competitor standing will be the victor of Guerrilla Warfare and will go on to main event the season finale PPV Coup de Grâce for the Union Battleground Championship! And now, it's time!
[The crowd is in pandemonium as Dempsey soon announces the first two competitors.]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Entering the ring at number one...
EVERY TIME THAT I CRY OUT, NO ONE EVER COMES TO ME,
EVERY TIME THAT I REACH OUT, NO ONE EVER RESCUES ME
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - OH MY GOD!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - It's the Trench War Traveler herself, Emery Layton!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - We haven't seen her inside a Union Battleground ring since Fallout, and she's back!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - She's been out representing us, Dante! She's a traveler that's been defending and showcasing that Trench War Championship all over the country!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - I am stunned! She's got the biggest mountain to climb, but she has a chance to earn the shot at becoming a duel crown champion! Hell she's entered in the Battalion Championships Tournament with her XWA Tag Team Champions partner Adam Fenric, she could potentially be a triple crown champion at season's end!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Incredible! But she's going to have to first get through 19 other fighters tonight!
[As "Somewhere Else to Be" by VAST hits the PA system and light explodes to life, the excitement hits the air. The Worst of the Pavees herself, wearing her leather jacket and beanie over her gear, and not to forget the Trench War Championship, emerges from behind the curtain, clearly impressed with the amount of people have turned out. Her eyes are closed as she's swaying her head to the beat of the very unusual entrance music she uses, holding her arms out as she struts down the ramp. She's lost in the moment, there's nowhere else she'd rather be right now. Once she reaches the bottom of the ramp, she pulls her beanie off and thrusts it into her pocket as she skates up the steel steps and climbs the turnbuckle. As the fans cheer, it's quite obviously not loud enough for her, as she lifts her arms up, indicating for them to get louder. Once the eccentric Irish traveler has spent enough time up there, Emery leaps down from the top rope and into the ring, transitioning from that into probably the most graceful, crisp forward-roll you've ever seen. One final time, she holds her arms out, a pleased look on her face that just screams 'yes, I am quite good, feel free to cheer me'. Finally, removing her jacket she throws the battered old thing to the outside and finds a corner of the ring to sit down in, legs flat out, as she waits for the match to begin.]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Entering the ring at number two...
TURN BACK ON THE BROKEN-HEARTED
SOME THINGS ARE JUST MEANT TO BE
I STILL BELIEVE THAT WE GOT A CHANCE
I STILL BELIEVE THAT WE GOT A CHANCE, TO BE
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And coming in at number two is one of our freshest signings, Isaiah Elliott! The man has one match under his belt, and granted he was victorious against a multiple time champion Crowbar.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - He had a big order in front of him in his debut, but this... This is straight up throwing him in the fire! Let's see what the North Carolina mechanic has got!
[‘100 in a 55’ by Pop Evil begins to play over the PA system. The curtain moves aside and out steps Isaiah Elliott. He looks around to the fans in attendance, a smile on his face. He walks down to the ring, high fiving fans as he passes. He reaches the ring and rolls under the bottom rope. He moves to his corner and lowers his head as he gets his body loose and his mind focused on the coming fight.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Alright folks, the Trench War Champion Emery Layton and the newcomer Isaiah Elliott are squared away. Every referee on staff is here to make sure any and all eliminations are accounted for. Our senior official Bruce O'Neal stands in the ring, and he's calling for the bell!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - And we're off!
[Emery and Isaiah come together in the center of the ring and give a quick but respectful fist bump before circling the ring. The two lock horns, and Elliott goes on the offensive with an arm wrench. Emery quickly somersaults out and cranks Elliott with an arm wrench. Isaiah overpowers the Lethal Lackeen and counters back into his own arm wrench. Emery with the quick thinking, begins laying in sharp elbow strikes to the face of Isaiah. Layton goes for a fourth consecutive elbow strike when Elliott ducks the attack, causing Emery to spin around face-to-face. Elliott locks around Emery's waist and sends her overboard with a textbook belly-to-belly suplex! Emery is quick to her feet and charges after Elliott. Emery hooks his arm and initiates a tilt-a-whirl that finishes off with a headscissors that sends Isaiah toppling head over heels and into the ropes! Emery springs off the ropes and comes crashing down with a leapfrog body guillotine! The crowd starts to get riled up as the countdown ticks to 10 and the war drum rolls begin to play.]
AM I BRAVE ENOUGH?
AM I STRONG ENOUGH?
TO FOLLOW THE DESIRE
THAT BURNS FROM WITHIN
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And here comes Mandi Morrison!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - She's been starting to build a repertoire as of late in the Battleground. Let's see what she can do against the Trench War Champ and Isaiah Elliott!
[Mandi Morrison looks different than her usual bubbly self. She shows a fierce focus as she sprints down the aisle and slides right into the ring. Mandi takes advantage of the downed Isaiah Elliott and begins firing away with rapid shoot kicks to his midsection. While Mandi is zeroed-in with Elliott, Emery waits to pick her moment and catches her breath. Mandi finally lets off of Elliott and turns toward the Trench War Champion. Emery is patiently waiting as Mandi turns and drives a fast knee to Mandi's midsection. Emery whips Mandi into the ropes and goes for a closeline, but Mandi ducks it, only to get rocked with Isaiah Elliott's signature Facebreaker!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Holy shit! Mandi just ate that violent flying spinning elbow strike from Isaiah Elliott!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - That move put away Crowbar, I'd imagine Mandi isn't getting up from this!
[Instead of making the cover, Isaiah quickly springs to his feet, and drops Emery Layton out the ring with a heavy missile drop kick! Elliott comes back to Mandi and makes the cover!]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Mandi Morrison has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Well we're back to square one. Elliott and Layton one on one until our next competitor arrives.
[Layton is on all fours at ringside as Elliott climbs to the outside. Elliott begins dropping heel kicks when suddenly the drum rolls begin again!]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - The war drums are rolling, it's about time to meet our next competitor!
"MUSTANG NISMO" BY BRIAN TYLER FT. SLASH BEGINS TO PLAY
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Uh oh! We've got some familiar company! The big man, Crowbar is in at number four!
[Crowbar steps out to the center stage pushing a grocery cart full of assorted weapons ranging from kendo sticks, chairs, baseball bats, chains, and more!]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Looks like Crowbar did a little shopping, and he's brought some gifts! How nice!
[Crowbar makes his way about halfway down the aisle and stops pushing the cart. He pulls out the heavy duty chain and begins wrapping it around his fist as he continues walking. Crowbar makes it ringside, and completely blindsided Isaiah Elliott with a sucker punch haymaker that completely drops Elliott to the floor!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Crowbar immediately going after his most recent opponent Isaiah Elliott!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - He's had countless head injuries throughout his career, but he's got a mind like a steel trap when it comes to revenge!
[With Elliot down for the count, Crowbar draws his attention towards the Trench War Traveler. He picks her up by the hair and rolls her into the ring. Crowbar goes back to his cart and grabs a folded steel chair and heads back to the ring. He slides the chair in first then slides head first under the ropes. Crowbar is back on his feet with the chair in his chain-wrapped hands and begins wailing away on the back of Emery Layton. The crowd reacts to every chair shot which echoes throughout the arena. Then the countdown strikes 10 and the crowd begins to build a count down along with the drums rolling.]
HE IS OBSERVING THE CHAOS,
TAKING IN THE LACK OF RAW HUMANITY.
IT'S AS IF THE ENTIRE WORLD'S
FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THEIR INSANITY
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Coming out right now at number five is another man with a government issued alias.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Where does Axel find these degenerates? Is there a factory somewhere pumping these criminals out?
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Formerly known as Douglas Armatage, now it's been revealed in recent weeks that Douglas is in fact actually Alexi Savvrin, a Russian military agent. Now, as was the case with Azrael Kahn, with Savvrin we really don't know a whole lot about, except that he loves to fight!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Well he's trimmed up his beard a bit since we've last seen him, I wonder if he's still double agenting with the beard army?!
[Alexi Savvrin rushes down to the ring and targets Crowbar outside of the ring with a massive drop kick to the back, sending Crowbar face first into the ring apron. Savvrin then drops Crowbar back with an exploder suplex onto the edge of the aisle ramp. Isaiah Elliott regains his composure and begins trading punches back and forth with Savvrin. Meanwhile, Layton rolls back in the ring to recuperate. Elliott and Savvrin continue the assault on each other, but Elliott begins blocking the shots and countering with several combo strikes. Elliott then bear hugs Savvrin and drops him on top of the apron with a rotating belly-to-belly suplex. Isaiah rolls Savvrin in the ring and follows in right behind him. Elliott clamps down with an ankle lock and the countdown is on! The drums begin to roll and the crowd chants!]
TO PLEAD MY CASE
TO SEND ME INTO OUTTA SPACE
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And now here comes Ashley Williams at number six!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - She had a match earlier tonight, and now she's entering Guerrilla Warfare early! Another tough task at hand for the XHW World and DARC Jr Pro Champion.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - This might bring another drive out of Williams we haven't seen yet in the Battleground. There's a shot at gold on the line!
[Ashley sprints down the aisle and goes for Crowbar who's still outside of the ring. Williams catches Crowbar off guard and drills him with a leaping closeline! Crowbar staggers back on his heels and catches himself on the apron. Williams rushes Crowbar again, but this time Crowbar catches Williams off guard with a drop toe hold, sending Williams face first into the apron! On the inside, Isaiah and Alexi continue brawling back and forth, until Elliott catches Savvrin with a vicious superman punch! Elliott sees Emery Layton is perched on the top rope, and decides to roll out of the ring to attend to Crowbar and Ashley Williams. Layton meanwhile waits for the perfect moment for Savvrin to get back to his feet and comes soaring down an connecting The Prikasa on Alexi Savvrin! Layton hooks the leg!]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Alexi Savvrin has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Savvrin now is the second person eliminated!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Two down, eighteen to go!
[Layton celebrates with the crowd as the war drums begin to roll and the crowd chants the countdown.]
WELL YOU THINK THAT YOU KNOW WHAT I AM BUT YOU DON'T.
'CAUSE I SAY WHAT YOU CAN'T AND I DO WHAT YOU WON'T.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And now, the Nostradamus of the ring, Jonathan Drake!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I wonder if Drake can predict who is going to win this thing?!
[Drake takes his time coming to the ring to configure the chaos that's happening on the outside of the ring. Drake then sprints down the second half of the way and connects with a cross body, but Crowbar catches him in mid-air. Crowbar then tosses Drake back and into the mass of people, knocking them all down. A huge free for all brawl between Crowbar, Jonathan Drake, Ashley Williams, and Isaiah Elliott breaks out.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - We've got a massive pileup outside of the ring!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - But one person is remains in the ring, Emery Layton!
[As the commotion continues on the outside, Emery Layton gets the crowd to rally behind her. She dials in and springs off the ropes and steps up to the top turnbuckle, bounces off the top rope and comes crashing down with a moonsault on top of the brawlers on the outside!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Oh my god! Emery Layton just mowed over the competition with a stunning top rope moonsault to the outside!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - She better conserve her energy if plans to win, we're not even half way there. But that was simply phenomenal!
[All five fighters lie on the concrete as the crowd is going wild. Layton is first to get up but as she does, the war drums kick in and the crowd starts to chant.]
THE SHIP IS SLOWLY SINKING
THEY THINK I'M CRAZY, BUT THEY DON'T KNOW THE FEELING
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - The Enigmatic Kreature is in at number eight!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Well we have at least one member of Salvation entering Guerrilla Warfare. Look at Devereaux sitting on his throne, he's not showing any expression seeing Kreature!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - I have to wonder if a member of Salvation does in fact win, if they will challenge the champ, considering he is their "chosen one".
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Maybe Devereaux won't have to defend his title at Coup de Grâce!
[Kreature makes his way down the aisle and goes directly towards Emery. Kreature comes barreling down with a forearm smash into Layton, and Kreature throws the Trench War Champ in the ring. Kreature gets to his feet and bring Emery up with him. He Irish whips the Irish lass into the ropes, and on the return Layton gets dropped with a leg lariet! Kreature climbs the turnbuckle, and comes crashing down with a senton bomb!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Kreature comes crashing down with the Aerial Demise!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Emery may be in serious trouble here!
[Kreature taunts the crowd after the big high flying move and the crowd just about boos him out of the arena. Kreature turns back to Emery, but Jonathan Drake slid in unnoticed and plants Kreature with a float over DDT! Suddenly the pounding of the war drums begin and the crowd start to chant!]
TOMERARENAI SOUUTSU SHOUDOU
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - It's Kimitsu Zombie!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Things are about to get real ugly!
[Zombie comes rushing out from the curtain and straight down the aisle! Kimitsu makes her way to ringside and immediately drops Crowbar with a heavy missile drop kick, and begins attacking Ashley Williams with stiff shoot kicks. Isaiah Elliott catches Zombie from behind with a belly-to-back suplex into the apron, and now he rolls her inside the ring. Elliott slides in but gets greeted with stomps from Jonathan Drake. Drake focuses on Elliott while Layton goes after Kreature. Layton drops Kreature with a bulldog, then Zombie attacks Layton with a running knee lift.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - So much chaos going in right now!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - How can you even call a match like this? You've got Drake applying the pressure on Elliott while Layton laid out Kreature only to be dropped by Kimitsu Zombie!
[Kimitsu continues the attack on the downed Layton, and in the meantime Crowbar makes his way in the ring with a chair in hand! Crowbar flattens Drake with a chair shot over the head. He drives several shots to Elliott, then heads to Zombie. He smacks the chair across Zombie's back, and begins trading off chair shots to Zombie, Layton, and Kreature!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Crowbar is now the lone man standing in the ring!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - He's taking full advantage of the no DQ stipulation. He's got an equalizer in hand, and he's literally leveled the playing field!
[Crowbar continues his assault on all of the downed opponents with the chair. Suddenly the crowd begins to rise and cheer, only to see Malcolm Dred-King jump over the barricade!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Dick look! It's Malcolm Dred-King!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - We haven't seen MDK since Fallout when Crowbar ambushed and put him on the shelf! Is he in this match? His music hasn't called for him or anything, we still have 30 seconds before the next opponent is called on!
[Dred-King slides into the ring where he's to the back of Crowbar. Crowbar turns around and MDK topples him over with a big boot to the gut! Crowbar drops the chair, and MDK hits Crowbar with one half of the Shattered Realities!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Oh my god! Malcolm Dred-King just dropped Crowbar headfirst on the chair!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Crowbar is split open!
[MDK jaws at the downed Crowbar as he exits out of the ring and back into the crowd. MDK makes his way deep into the crowd as the fans cheer him on, and the opportunistic Emery Layton rolls onto Crowbar for a cover!]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Crowbar has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - I can't believe it! MDK just cost Crowbar a chance to main event Coup de Grâce for the Union Battleground Championship!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - And listen! The sound of the war drums! We're about to see our next competitor!
I SEE YOU IN LINE, DRAGGING YOUR FEET
YOU HAVE MY SYMPATHY
THE DAY YOU WERE BORN, YOU WERE BORN FREE
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - It's The Spectacular Dillon Shaw!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Oh boy, this guy has not hid his feelings of being robbed of the Union Battleground Championship by the leader of Salvation, Nemesis. He was the victim of this whole ordeal between Devereaux and Salvation!
[Dillon Shaw makes his way onto the stage. His steady pace highlights his stern stare down the aisle to the ring. As he looks focused and pissed off, he bolts down the ramp and slides right in the ring. Shaw goes straight to Kreature who's finally got to his feet, and Shaw drops him with a standing C-4! Shaw rotates up to Kreature's head and locks him in the a scissored arm bar! Kreature only lasts momentarily as he taps out!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Dillon Shaw head hunts Kreature immediately with the New Horizon, then tapped him out with the Core Consequence!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - We may not know Dick Devereaux's feelings with Salvation, but there's no guessing with Dillon Shaw! He's out for blood and gold!
[We switch directions where Kimitsu Zombie and Jonathan Drake are battling one on one. Zombie whips Drake into the ropes, and on the return drives a knee to the midsection. Drake hunched over and Kimitsu seizes the moment and crashes down with a vicious axe kick to the back of the head!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Kimitsu drops Drake with the Banzai God Kick!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Looks like Zombie is about to give Drake another lesson! But he probably already knew that!
[Zombie picks Drake back up by the hair and quickly sets up and delivers a swinging fisherman's neckbreaker! Zombie makes the cover!]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Jonathan Drake has been eliminated!
[Layton and Elliott are back at each other's throats while Zombie and Dillon Shaw are the only two standing unopposed and soon bull rush each other and trade off punches and shoot kicks! Suddenly we hear the war drums thundering!]
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE
WOULD YOU BRING YOUR ATTENTION TO ME...
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Hah, are you kidding? It's "The Main Man" Hunter Grand coming in at number eleven!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - And look, he still holds the Grand Slam Championship! I bet he's been defending that belt across the globe more than Emery Layton has defended the Trench War title!
[Hunter Grand comes out with a look of confusion on his face. There is no entourage to escort him out, no flashy lights or pyro. Grand shakes his head then sprints down the aisle and slides into the ring. Hunter rushes over to Kimitsu Zombie and closelines her out of the ring! Grand then rushes over and closelines Emery Layton over the ropes! Grand rushes back over and closelines Elliott over the ropes! And finally sprints back over to Dillon Shaw and closelines him over the ropes! All competitors lie outside of the ring, and Hinter Grand celebrates.... Thinking he just eliminated everyone!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Does this knucklehead know this isn't one of those "sports entertainment" battle royals?
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Obviously not! He's looking out to the entrance motioning for the next opponent to enter!
[Hunter Grand motions for the next person to come out, and doesn't realize that everyone is still fair game. Kimitsu Zombie rolls back in the ring and spins Grand around and drops him with a swinging fisherman neckbreaker! Zombie makes another cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Zombie just gave Grand "A Trip to the Grave"!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Couldn't happen to a better guy!
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Hunter Grand has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Well, that didn't take long!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I'm sure Grand has heard that before!
[Zombie kicks Grand out of the ring but Dillon Shaw springs into action and floors Kimitsu with an exploder suplex! Shaw begins dropping heel kicks on to Zombie, and from out of nowhere Ashley Williams emerges from ringside! She discreetly climbs onto the apron and ascends to the top turnbuckle. Shaw catches her out of the corner of his eye and bolts for her. Shaw springs up from the middle rope and quickly gets to the top turnbuckle. Before Williams can even realize what just happened, Shaw drops her with a top rope C-4! Shaw hooks the leg for a cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Dillon Shaw with the "New Horizons" from the top rope!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - He's making the cover on Williams!
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Ashley Williams has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Hunter Grand and Ashley Williams both eliminated within a matter of a minute!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - And now, the war drums are thundering! Let's see who it is!
TURBO KILLER BY CARPENTER BRUT BEGINS TO PLAY
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Coming in at number twelve, Jove Belane!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - This guy has shown some promise, Dante! He’s coming in just after the halfway mark, and there’s still a lot of fighters left to enter, but he may just be my pick to win this thing!
[Jove Belane emerges from the curtain and steadily paces onto the stage without his “trusty” agent Harvey Lohman. The methodical mixed martial artist takes his time coming to the ring as he assesses the free-for-all going on. Dillon Shaw and Kimitsu Zombie continue battling each other inside the ring, while Emery and Isaiah battle on the outside. Jove decides to slide into the ring, and double team Kimitsu.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Jove Belane has decided to enter the ring, and assist the attack on Kimitsu Zombie.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – He did just face off against her at L!GHTS OUT #12, so he knows her capabilities. It’s a smart move to try and get her eliminated as soon as possible.
[Jove and Dillon Irish whip Kimitsu into the ropes, and on the return connect with a double big boot. Shaw then instantly attacks Belane with a stiff right elbow. Shaw backs Belane into the ropes, and whips him across the ring. Belane on the return gets stuck with a crisp double leg takedown, but Belane stays focused and locks in a Gogoplata! Shaw looks to be in some trouble, but is able to wiggle his way out. Shaw gets to his feet, but Belane trips him up with an ankle pick. Belane mounts and begins raining down haymakers and hammer fists!]
[Meanwhile on the outside, Elliott flat lines Layton with a spear into the steel steps! Isaiah leaves Layton motionless on the floor, and slides into the ring. Elliott walks over to the now neutral standing Shaw and Belane. Elliott lays in some heavy rights to Shaw, and whips him into the ropes. On the return, Elliott lifts Shaw up with a back body drop, and as Shaw is coming down, Belane delivers an inverted cutter! Belane and Elliott are now the only two standing in the ring, and the two have an intense standoff. Elliott extends his fist out, and after some hesitation, Belane fist bumps him back.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Isaiah Elliott and Jove Belane seems to be showing some respect towards one another, or even forming an alliance here!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Well we do know that Isaiah Elliott has recently been taken under Harvey Lohman’s wing as his representative. This could spell disaster for the rest of the field.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Do you hear that? The war drums are calling, and it’s about time for our next competitor! Who is going to be lucky thirteen?
"I'LL FACE MYSELF" BY SHOJI MEGURO (LITTLE V'S REMIX)
BEGINS TO PLAY
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Oh shit!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – No! Not her! Come on, Graves! Why the hell is she here?!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Saint Saito is in the building!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – This is madness! I can’t watch!
[Saint Saito comes strolling out, wearing a black #SaitoClan t-shirt over her ring gear. She makes her way down the aisle, and takes her shirt off and goes to give it to a fan. But at the last second, she pulls the shirt away, points and laughs at the fan. Saito makes her way to ringside, but instead of climbing in the ring, she heads over to Emery Layton. Saito begins hammering devastating shoot kicks to the body of Layton. Saito then picks the top half piece of the steel steps, and slams it down on Layton’s back! ]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – It looks like there is some unfinished business between Saint Saito and Emery Layton!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Saito and Layton did have some confrontation at L!GHTS OUT #8 during the number one contendership match for the Trench War Title. Saito ended up losing that match to Hannah Kristiansen due to some shenanigans by Britain Jade, and the result was Saito going ballistic on Hannah and Emery!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Who doesn’t have some confrontation with Saito? It’s like she’s on the rag 24/7! Someone get her some ice cream or chocolate or something!
[Saito continues battering Layton on the outside, while on the inside Jove Belane is squaring off with Dillon Shaw and Isaiah Elliott is squared up against Kimitsu Zombie. So much carnage is going on, and no one is gaining any advantage. The war drums begin again abruptly.]
IT'S NOT MY FAULT YOUR GIRLFRIEND LIKES ME
I DO HER HARD LIKE FUCKING WARPED SPEED
YOU'RE DAD'S MAD, IT'S NOT MY FUCKING FAULT
BECAUSE YOUR MOM ALSO WANTS TO FUCK ME
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – And coming in at number fourteen, is “The Iron King” Cassius Reed!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – I got to say, I like this dude, Dante! He seems like a Reed who I’d actually want to hang out with off the clock.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Wow, Dick, really? After all we’ve been through?
[Cassius Reed come strolling out to the main stage to a mix reaction from the crowd. Reed makes his way down to ringside, and opts to attack Saint Saito from behind with a drop kick. Reed mounts onto Saito and pummels her with a combination of lefts and rights. Saito bridges to knock Reed off of her, and looks furious. Saint Saito delivers a roundhouse kick to Reed, and shoves him into the ring, and Saito goes back to Layton. Inside the ring, Elliott knocks Kimitsu Zombie out of the ring with a closeline and sees the new entrant Cassius Reed slowly standing to his feet. As Reed turns, Isaiah flies across the ring with a spinning elbow strike! Reed looks down for the count, and Elliott makes a cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – We may have just seen another early exit here with Cassius Reed!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – I blame Saint Saito!
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Cassius Reed has been eliminated!
[Elliott keeps his head on a swivel to scope the action. He see Dillon Shaw hammering away at Jove Belane, so Elliott rushes over and sends Shaw out of the ring with a stiff drop kick. And now, the drums begin again signaling another competitor to enter.]
I WANTED LACE, I WANTED PEARLS,
TO BE A PRINCESS LIKE THE OTHER GIRLS,
BUT LIFE CAME HARD TO MY FRONT DOOR,
AND I GREW UP TRYIN’ TO EVEN UP THE SCORE
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – And now coming in at number fifteen, Cheyenne Walker!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – She’s in a pretty good spot here, Dante. We’ve got just five entrants left to call out, and she’s the freshest one out here.
[Cheyenne emerges from the curtains and gives a quick wave to the crowd before rushing down the aisle. She slides into the ring, and targets Kimitsu Zombie who just re-entered. Cheyenne lays in several forearms smashes, backing Zombie into the ropes. Cheye whips Zombie across the ring, but Zombie uses it to her advantage by hitting a missile drop kick onto a preoccupied Isaiah Elliott. The kick sends Elliott out of the ring, and Zombie rushes back towards Cheye. The rumblings of the war drums pick up again, and the crowd begins to count down.]
DEATH SURROUNDS MY HEARTBEAT’S SLOWING DOWN
I WON’T TAKE THIS WORLD’S ABUSE
I WON’T GIVE UP, I REFUSE!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – And now, at number sixteen, Xion Ben-Judah!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Looks like we’ve got another alliance forming here in Guerrilla Warfare! Belane and Elliott seemed to have an agreement, and I’m sure the lovely couple of Xion and Cheyenne will as well!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – It’s a numbers game at this point, as we have eight wrestlers currently out here.
[Xion Ben-Judah makes his way out and as Thrasher suggested, comes to aid Cheyenne Walker. The two start to double team on Kimitsu Zombie, and lay her out with a double vertical suplex. Then they begin to have an impromptu tag match against Jove Belane and Isaiah Elliott. Xion is able to take out Elliott with a fireman’s carry gutbuster, and quickly helps out Cheyenne who’s being worked on by Jove. XBJ takes Jove out with a German suplex, then checks on Walker.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Dick, the drums are playing!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Looks like we’ve got more company!
THEY FALL IN LINE, ONE AT A TIME, READY TO PLAY...
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – At number seventeen, a man who’s already had a brutal match tonight, Tornado Desencadenado enters Guerrilla Warfare!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – I’m sure he’s not at 100% right now, but there’s just three more competitors left to be called on, if he can manage his energy and stay low key, he’s got a chance!
[Tornado emerges from the curtain to a resounding cheer of approval by the crowd. Desencadenado looks beaten up still from his earlier fight, but nonetheless heads down the aisle and joins in the chaos on the outside.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – There is a lot going on outside of the ring, which everyone has to remember, that any elimination attempt will only count inside the ring.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Yeah but they can soften them up on the outside then roll them back in.
[Tornado targets Shaw on the outside, and the two trade off punches back and forth. Even though TD just entered the match, Shaw looks a bit fresher as he’s been competing for about 10 minutes now. Shaw overpowers Tornado and throws him in the ring, and follows behind. Meanwhile Saito is still wailing away at Layton, to which Xion takes action and pummels Saito with a superkick to the back of the head. Ben-Judah rolls Saito inside the ring and begins giving her a taste of her own medicine with some mounted strikes.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – I’m beginning to see a trend here, Dick. It looks like now that a lot of these battles are between people who have either just recently fought, or are about to fight at L!GHTS OUT #13.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Yeah, I see it, Dante. Xion and Saito are now brawling who will faceoff later this week, and Zombie has been back and forth with Belane and Elliott, to which she faced Belane two weeks ago, and will go up against Elliott this Friday. There’s some smart strategy involved within this overall anarchy!
[Xion and Saito are paired up against each other while Walker assists with XBJ, Tornado and Dillon Shaw are at each other’s throats, Zombie and Elliott are at it, and Belane and Layton are now trading blows. The war drums begin again…]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – We are about to have 10 fighters here, Dick!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Play them in, boys!
SEIYA SESSESSE SEIYA.
SEIYA SESSESSE SEIYA.
SOIYA SOSSOSSO SOIYA.
SOIYA SOSSOSSO SOIYA.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Another surprise return! Sakaguchi Kyoshi!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – We haven’t seen him since his defeat by Emery Layton for the Trench War Championship at Battle of Los Angeles!
[Kyoshi comes storming out from the curtains and slides straight into the ring. Kyoshi begins to help Tornado Desencadenado by laying into Dillon Shaw. Kyoshi and TD hammer away at Shaw, who’s now been split open. Kyoshi and TD whip Shaw into the ropes, but on the return Shaw lays both men out with a strong double closeline. Shaw picks TD up and tosses him outside of the ring. The Spectacular makes his way back to Kyoshi, and with ease locks in the Core Consequence! Kyoshi reaches for the ropes with his leg, but it’s no use. Kyoshi quickly taps out.]
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Sakaguchi Kyoshi has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Wow, a quick exit for Kyoshi!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – He and Hunter Grand made some surprising returns, but they’ve been out of action for a while. You can’t come into a match of this magnitude cold like that!
[In one corner, XBJ and Walker continue the attacks on Saito, until Saito explodes in anger and levels XBJ with a Saito SMASH, sending him to the outside, and another Saito SMASH to Walker! Cheyenne tries to roll out of the ring to save herself, but Saito catches her with a sharp elbow drop to cap it off, and goes for a cover.]
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Cheyenne Walker has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Oh boy, Saito took out her upcoming opponent’s girlfriend, and I’m sure that’s going to stick in his mind… Tonight and Friday.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Saito is ruthless and shows no remorse in her actions. Eventually, it’s going to catch up on her!
[Saito pushes off of Cheyenne, and looks around the ring until she spots Emery Layton again who’s grappling with Jove Belane. She jumps right in and continues beating on Emery. All of a sudden the war drums begin again and the crowd counts down.]
I'M ON MY SECOND DRINK, BUT I'VE HAD A FEW BEFORE
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – At number nineteen, Trixie!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Trixie is another who competed already tonight, and had a hellacious battle to finally end the longstanding rivalry with Anton Chase. She did what she set out to do tonight, give her Trixie title some validity, and now she’s in the prime spot to earn a shot at some Battleground gold!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – And also, her partner Tornado Desencadenado is still in this match, so again, more alliances seem to be forming over the course of this battle!
[Trixie makes her way out holding her Trixie title. She’s hobbling along as she is still in much pain from her earlier match. Trixie slides into the ring, and goes after Saint Saito! Trixie unbuttons her title and swings it at Saito, but Saito ducks it in time, and without warning, executes a resounding Saito Smash! On the other side of the ring, Tornado almost simultaneously executes his Cyclone Smash on to Dillon Shaw! Saito makes a cover, and without knowing Trixie is down for the count, Tornado makes a cover on Dillon. Two referees pop in and make the count.]
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Dillon Shaw and Trixie have been eliminated!
[Tornado’s expression goes from jubilated to shock as he hears Trixie’s name announced as being eliminated. Tornado goes over to Trixie and holds her head up, and you can see that he’s apologizing for not breaking the pinfall. Tornado gets back to his feet, and this distraction allows Xion Ben-Judah to kick him in the gut, and deliver his signature Gory neckbreaker! XBJ makes the cover!]
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Tornado Desencadenado has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Tornado got caught with the Golgotha after tending to his partner!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – You gotta keep your head in the game, Dante! It’s every man, woman, and child for themselves!
[Back to the action, Kimitsu Zombie and Isaiah Elliott have been focused on each other and have been going back and forth. Elliott seems to be gaining the advantage until Kimitsu Zombie delivers a flurry of shotei shots to the face! She finishes it off with a nasty Savate kick, stunning Elliott. Kimitsu keeps the pressure on Isaiah and drops him with a swinging fisherman neckbreaker! Zombie makes a cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Trip to the Grave! Kimitsu Zombie just rocked Elliott!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – I think this may be a little preview to their upcoming match here!
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Isaiah Elliott has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – What a display of willpower by Isaiah Elliott! The man came into this rumble at number two, and made it through nineteen entries!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – I think as Guerrilla Warfare rolls on, people are dropping like flies! The workload these competitors are putting themselves through is astonishing!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Well folks, the drums are rolling, so that means we are about to see the twentieth and final competitor in Guerrilla Warfare…
I AM, THE ASTRO-CREEP, A DEMOLITION STYLE,
HELL AMERICAN FREAK…YEAH!
I AM, THE CRAWLING DEAD,
A PHANTOM IN A BOX, SHADOW IN YOUR HEAD
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – At number twenty… The leader of Salvation, Nemesis!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Goddammit, I knew it! I just had a feeling he’d make his way in here somehow.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Looks at Dick Devereaux on his throne! He looks a bit surprised to see Nemesis out here!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Axel Graves said he was going to find twenty of the best fighters he could find, and right now, Nemesis is 6-0 in the Battleground.
[Nemesis slowly makes his way out, and takes his time getting to the ring. As he reaches ringside, he simply stands and watches as the chaos ensue inside the ring. Meanwhile, Jove Belane came on the attack on Kimitsu Zombie, seemingly for eliminating his acquaintance that also represented by Harvey Lohman. Jove delivers a burst of strikes, and finishes it off with his signature and notorious 540 crescent kick! Belane hooks the leg!]
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Kimitsu Zombie has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – It’s down to five fighters now, Dick. One of these competitors will be guaranteed headlining Coup de Grace!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – We’ve got Nemesis, Saint Saito, Jove Belane, Xion Ben-Judah, and somehow Emery Layton! Who’s it going to be?
[Nemesis finally makes his way in the ring, and begins hammering away at Xion Ben-Judah. The ultimate good versus evil is showcased. Nemesis overpowers XBJ and picks him up by the neck and slams him into the turnbuckle. Nemesis begins pounding away with head shots and body kicks, softening Ben-Judah even more. Meanwhile, Belane and Saito are trading blows when Saito hits Belane with a shotgun dropkick, sending him back pedaling into the turnbuckle. Saito taunts the crowd and unbeknownst to Saito, Emery Layton stands atop the opposite turnbuckle, waiting to strike! As Saint Saito begins to turn, Layton flies high to go for The Prikasa, but Saito sniffs it out at the last second, and drills Layton with the Saito Smash! Saito hooks the leg.!]
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Emery Layton has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Unbelievable! Emery Layton has been eliminated by Saint Saito!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – It’s an amazing feat she lasted this long, going from the number one entrant to being in the final five. It just goes to show why she’s the Trench War Champion!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Right you are. But I have to say that this fight between Saito and Layton may not be over yet.
[Saint Saito jumps up to celebrate and taunt Emery Layton. Saito shoves Layton out of the ring by her foot, and then turns back to get back in the action. But out of nowhere, SMACK! Jove Belane rocks Saint Saito with his crescent kick and quickly goes for a cover!]
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Saint Saito has been eliminated!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Holy shit! Saito’s eyes rolled in the back of her head after getting hit with “The Storm”!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – I think the only thing maybe more devastating than the Saito Smash is that Storm kick by Belane!
[On the flip side, Xion and Nemesis have been going furiously back and forth. Both fighters look evenly matched, and consistently countering each other’s offense. Xion Ben-Judah catches Nemesis off guard at the right moment and drills him with his Gory neckbreaker he calls “The Golgotha” that shakes the ring! Nemesis is out cold! Xion gets to his feet and before he can turn, Jove Belane rocks him with “The Storm”! Belane falls on top of XBJ and makes a cover!]
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Xion Ben-Judah has been eliminated!
[Without hesitation, Belance quickly hops off XBJ and right onto Nemesis for a cover!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Jove Belane is about to win Guerrilla Warfare right here!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – Nemesis is still stunned from The Golgotha!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – What in the hell?!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – It’s Sinister! Sinister just pulled Belane off by the leg from the outside!
[The crowd erupts into boos and trash begins to be thrown at ringside and in the ring in massive quantities. Nemesis finally regains consciousness and signals Sinister to enter the ring. The Soul Collector obliges and without another word, he lifts Belane off his feet and flips him over in a tombstone piledriver position! Sinister spins around and drops Jove straight on his head! Not finished here, Nemesis picks Belane back up and straight lifts him over his head in a military press. Nemesis drops Belane with a GTS! Belane hits the mat like a rag doll, and Sinister props him back up in a sitting position, to where Nemesis finishes it off with a Kinshasa! Nemesis has the cover!]
[DING DING DING!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – NO! Not like this!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – It’s all fair game, Dante!
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – Here is your winner of Guerrilla Warfare, “The Alpha and Omega” Nemesis!
[The crowd is in mayhem at the result of Sinister and Nemesis’ double teaming tactics. More trash is thrown in tides. Nemesis looks over to Dick Devereaux who now standing next to the throne. Nemesis wags his finger at Devereaux, wishing for him to come to the ring. Devereaux slowly makes his way down the aisle.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – DDT, I think we’re about to get an answer from Dick Devereaux on if he will accept Nemesis’ invitation to join Salvation and be their chosen one!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – After this showing, Devereaux may want to accept, if nothing else than to add this power as his resource and avoid what so many has suffered from at the hands of Salvation!
[Dick Devereaux finally makes his way to the ring, and climbs up the apron and steps inside the ring. Devereaux has a blank poker face on, as he looks at Sinister, then at Nemesis, and finally down at Belane who is busted wide open. Nemesis looks a bit impatient with Devereaux and holds his arms out wide looking for a response from the Champ. Devereaux slowly looks down at the belt that’s draped over his shoulder and back at Nemesis. Devereaux looks down at Belane again and kneels down to him. Devereaux smears his hand all over the face of Belane, and then smacks himself on the face, giving him his signature hand print! The crowd begins to boo as Devereaux leans in and gives the Guerrilla Warfare winner an embracing hug!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – No! This can’t be!
[Nemesis, Sinister, and Devereaux all raise their arms in victory and circle around the ring, and the boo-birds are out in droves to a deafening point. Then, out from nowhere, Devereaux rocks Nemesis with a Pipe Bomb! The crowd goes nuts! Devereaux stands back up and hits Sinister with a homing missile! Devereaux begins to kick both big men until they both roll out of the ring, and scurry up the ramp.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – No! Devereaux pulled the swerve on Salvation!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher – This is amazing! Just when I thought Devereaux was going to accept “his path to Salvation” he decided to go off the beaten path!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed – Folks, what an incredible night! We will find out more about what just happened when we return to the airwaves this Friday for L!GHTS OUT #13! Good night everyone!
