WELCOME TO THE SHOW
[As the Scumbag Society finishes the song with an outro-solo, fireworks ignite the stage and the fans are on their feet! Thunderous booms and screaming rockets deafen the atmosphere as the cameras pan throughout the arena, catching some of the fans' signs.]
[The fireworks finally subside and we draw our attention to the broadcast booth.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Ladies and Gentlemen welcome, you are watching Union Battleground's Battle of Los Angeles pay per view, live here at The Fabulous Forum in south-side Los Angeles, California! I am your host "The Doctor" Dante Reed, and alongside me as usual is "Diamond" Dick Thrasher. But wait! Along his side is the one and only, "The Emerald"... "The War-forged Warrior" Drew Stevenson! Drew, welcome my friend!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - I appreciate it, Dante. Let me say one thing right off the bat, this atmosphere is electric! We're in the midst of a sold out crowd of 17,505 rabid fans. The fans are absolutely going crazy thanks to Luke Knux and the Scumbag Society performing live here with their rendition of Tupac Shakur's California Love.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - To kick things off, we will have our first exhibition match with Hammerstein representing Lion's Road Pro Wrestling, going up against Ellie Stokes who is representing Fucking Awesome Wrestling.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - No bones about that; tonight we will definitely be seeing some fucking awesome wrestling! Because also tonight, finally after months of build up, months of combat, we finally have come down to the final two competitors in the tournament finals with "The UltraViolent Icon" Tweeder, squaring off against "The Butcher of the Battleground" Dick Devereaux!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - So far these past few months' tournament matches have been pretty tame, but tonight everything is on the line so I expect for Devereux and Tweeder to pull out all the stops in order to win the Union Battleground Championship!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And also in the lineup, tonight we will crown the newly minted Trench War Championship, with a match between Emery Layton and Sakaguchi Kyoshi. We will also see bitter rivals reignite there feud that originated in Redemption Wrestling. I'm talking about "The Wrestling God" Anton Chase going up against Trixie.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - If Trixie wins here tonight, I don't think this can be called a rivalry anymore, it'll be more of an all out beating. Trixie has won their last two contests over in Redemption. The first time defeating Anton to win the Genesis Championship, and then the second time retaining that title in a two out of three falls rematch.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - No doubts about that but really one of the most talked about matches outside of our double Main Event Championship matches is another that has championship gold but in foreign territory. I'm talking about The GOL Trios Champions The Outliers going up against the AWE Tag Team Champions Ketsuekigata Z. This match is going to be one for the ages and owner and promoter Axel Graves has personally assigned Senior Official Bruce O'Neil to this bout to ensure a knock down, drag out match to remember.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - And don't forget we finally have the debut of the mysterious and mythical masked Mega Star going up against Crowbar. Drew, Dick, what do you make of this matchup?
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - It's hard to say, Dante, because we know absolutely nothing about the Mega Star. He's made one cryptic appearance during L!GHTS OUT #3, but we haven't heard from him since, and all of a sudden tonight he makes is in-ring debut. I got to say I'd be lying if I wasn't a little excited, and a little nervous.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Alright, guys, let's bring our attention now to ringside where our very own hype man is in the ring... Mike, take it away!
hammerstein vs Ellie Stokes
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Making his way to the ring at this time, weighing in tonight at 259 lbs., originally from Why, Arizona and now residing in Whynot, Mississippi, he is representing Lion's Road Pro Wrestling, he is Hammerstein!
♫ THE BROTHERS GONNA WORK IT OUT... ♫
[Leave Home begins to play as the arena lights lower and multicolor floodlights shine and move around the arena. As the tempo of the song quickens, a spotlight shines on the entrance as Hammerstein comes bouncing through the curtain. He makes his way down the aisle, high fiving and hugging, and taking selfies with the fans. He makes a lap around ringside, greeting the fans, before going up the ring steps and stepping through the ropes. He climbs to the second turnbuckle in each corner and salutes the fans before shaking the referee's hand and going to his corner, where he warms up for his opponent.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - This man coming to the ring right now is a true free lancer.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - No doubt. He's currently wrestling in Guerreros of Lucha, World Wrestling Headquarters, United Kingdom Wrestling Federation, Extreme Championship Wrestling Federation, and Seattle Pro Wrestling. He's a high motor caliber professional that's for sure.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - And check out that hair! You think I could pull that off, Dante?
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - No comment.
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - And his opponent, representing Fucking Awesome Wrestling, hailing from Santa Monica, California she is Ellie Stokes!
♫ EYES LIT -- I WANT SHORT BREATHS
I FOUND DARK EYE LIDS
LIKE THE SUMMER INTO ROUGH HANDS ♫
[The lights dim down as “Crimewave” starts to play and red and purple lights starts to swirl around the entry way. After a few seconds of the music playing Ellie Stokes comes skipping out from the back. She does a quick spin on the top of the stage before holding her arms up with a big smile. Ellie then heads down the ramp, making a point to high-five as many fans as physically possible. Once ringside she runs to the side of the ring, jumping up and sitting on the apron. She blows a kiss to the crowd before rolling under the ropes and getting to her feet. Ellie climbs up on the second rope then leans over giving a peace sign next to her face with a smile before jumping down, ready for action.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Ellie Stokes is a bit of a newcomer in the Wrestling business, but you wouldn't know based off the fans' reaction.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - She may be new to the national stage, but she has a very big and strong cult following here in the LA area where she grew up. The fans are surely behind their homegrown prospect.
[The bell sounds and this match is underway. Hammerstein and Ellie meet in the center of the ring and give a respective handshake. The two now focus in for the fight. They lock up, and Ellie moves in with a twisting arm wrench. Hammerstein overpowers with a counter wrench of his own. Stokes throws a couple elbows, and springs off the ropes. She comes back looking for a cross body, but Hammerstein catches her and delivers a Fallaway slam. Hammerstein goes for a running head butt, but Stokes drills him with a boot to the face. Ellie kip ups to her feet, and begins laying into Hammerstein with a quick combo of jabs and kicks. Stokes whips Da Hammer into the turnbuckle, and quickly follows it up with a step up enziguri!]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Hammerstein is feeling that one!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - He's seeing all tweet tweet!
[Hammerstein stumbles out from the corner, and Stokes hits him with a double knee backbreaker. Ellie goes to pick up Hammerstein by his gorgeous blonde hair, but Da Hammer slides in an armbar! Ellie is quick to get to the ropes and forces to break the hold. The two get to their feet, Hammerstein lays a hard kick to Stokes' shin. Now he throws some stinging tomahawk chops in bunches. The chops backs Ellie into the turnbuckles. Da Hammer now throws some stuff jabs, dazing Stokes. Hammerstein rears back, then comes barreling down with an avalanche splash! Hammerstein follows it up and hits a springboard arm drag.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Da Hammer with his specialty armdrag he calls the Tex-Mex Armdrag!
[Hammerstein tries to stay on the offensive by springing off the ropes and going for a running Senton, but Ellie escapes just in time. She pops up and hits a what elbow drop into Da Hammer. Stokes picks Hammer up and whips him into the ropes, and cuts him in half with a spear! She makes a cover.]
... No, a kickout after two!
[Both fighters on their feet now, with Ellie creeping up from behind Hammerstein. She's barely able to lock her hands around his waist, but is able to hit a releasing German suplex which sends the crowd in crazed cheers! Ellie goes over towards Hammerstein, but he quickly goes on the offensive with a leg sweep, sending Ellie face first back into the turnbuckles. Da Hammer sets up Ellie in the corner, and looks on into the crowd. Da Hammer begins his signature chops.]
[Hammerstein pauses for a moment, then shouts and chops.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - The Hammerheads are out tonight!
[The crowd is on their feet cheering on. Hammerstein starts to work the crowd even more, getting them riled up with the famous "can't hear you" pose to each side of the ring. Hammer goes to Ellie but she attacks with an enziguri! Hammerstein is dazed and and Elliengoes to the high rent district! She waits for the right moment, and then goes for a top rope crossbody block, but Hammerstein catches her and drops her straight to the mat. He shouts "No no no, not in my house ."]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I love this guy! He does a great Dikembe Mutombo impression!
[The crowd is behind Hammerstein and he is getting amped up. Ellie gets to her feet but catches a boot to the midsection, and BOOM! Droppin' da Hammer! He makes the cover!]
[Ding ding ding]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, Hammerstein!
[The crowd is in an uproar as Hammerstein's hand is raised in victory. Being the good sport that he is, he comes over to Ellie and raises her hand too, and the fans' approval is obvious for these two. Hammer and Ellie share a respectful hug as the fans continue to cheer them on.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - What an exciting match to kickoff Battle of Los Angeles! Coming up next, is the bout between Echo Blackwhisper and Hannah Kristiansen, to test the loyalty and word, given by Echo. Will this bout explode like the Fourth of July? Or does Echo truly mean what she says about forming an alliance with Hannah?
Winner: Hammerstein via pinfall (Droppin da Hammer)
[Cameras take us backstage to a long line of individuals standing in front of rows and rows of tables covered in food items. One individual stands out like a sore thumb, Camila Martinez. She's places food items on a plate and looks over her shoulders worrysome.]
Camila Martinez - SHUT UP!
[The event crew member next to her turns and looks at Camila awkwardly before walking away.]
Camila Martinez - I guess he didn't hear what I'm hearing.
[She places her ear buds in her ears and drowns out the distinct chatter of those surrounding her. Camila pushes play and the screen of her phone turns black and she drops her cell phone and plate of food on the floor.]
Camila Martinez - AGHH!
[She removes the ear buds and backs away from the table. Everyone around her looks at her like she is insane.]
Camila Martinez - NO! Hold on. How are you guys not hearing this?!
[She storms away angry with everyone just staring at her.]
Camila Martinez - I'm not cleaning that up either. Fuck that!
[She leaves the catering area and storms through the doors.]
Echo Blackwhisper vs Hannah Kristiansen
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Currently standing in the ring, from Hartford, Connecticut, she represents the Forgotten Nation Wrestling, Echo Blackwhisper!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Guys we saw a few weeks ago Hannah making her debut and issuing an open challenge, to which Echo made her debut as well. They had an impromptu bout where Hannah came away the victor. However, later that night Echo ambushed her backstage. And then, Echo proposes an alliance. What do you make of it all, Drew?
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Hannah has every right to be sceptical of Echo's motives. I still wouldn't be convinced after this match, Echo's really going to have to prove she wants to build this alliance.
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - And her opponent, from St. Louis, Missouri, "The All-American Bad Ass" Hannah Kristiansen!
♫ I'M AMERICA, DRINK THE WATER
I'M AMERICA, BRING YOU LIFE
I'M AMERICA, I'M YOUR DAUGHTER
NOBODY LEFT BEHIND ♫
[Cilver's "I'm America” cues up to a spotlight shining on the entrance curtain as Uliana kicks things off with a spoken version of the song's chorus.] # I'm America, drink the water I'm America, bring you life I'm America, I'm your daughter Nobody left behind # [Just as the song kicks into high gear, the entrance curtains are launched to the sides as the beautiful Hannah Kristian steps out onto the stage. She's clad in a full length digital camouflage-patterned hoodless "All American Badass" boxer's robe, a US flag bandana over her mane of long wavy blonde hair. It's at this time that Cilver gets into "I'm America's" first verse.] # I've been bloodied, I've been muddied Brought down to my knees I stood in line waiting to shine Now its my time My mother said, that day, to me This land is for the free And I've been waiting for so long No one, no one knows Now it's my time I won't be left behind # [Gazing out at the crowd, a focused look on her face, Hannah marches purposefully down the aisleway steps, slapping a few outstretched hands as she passes by.] # I'm America, drink the water I'm America, bring you life (I won't be left behind) I'm America, I'm your daughter Nobody left behind I'm America, drink the water I'm America, bring you life (I won't be left behind) I'm America, I'm your daughter Nobody left behind # [Upon arriving at ringside, she ascends the steps and stops on the apron, turning to face the crowd. There, feet at shoulder width, she throws her robe open and off in dramatic fashion, leaving her arms outstretched like an eagle - exposing her outfit beneath. She then pulls the flag bandana from her head, and tosses it into the crowd.] # You thought I'm weak, I couldn't speak Bite my tongue until it bleeds Stand aside 'cause this is mine Now its my time All I had was just a dream And the weight of everything Mother wish that you could see How they follow me # [She wears a night camouflage-patterned V-necked sports bra that shows off just the right amount of cleavage, as well as her midriff, black studded leather belt, and night camo-patterned tights with US flag patterned skulls down both sides of her legs and held in place by a rattlesnake - its head protruding from the top and facing the middle on both sides with its forked tongue sticking out. She rounds out her gear with white athletic tape on her wrists and hands; along with night camo kneepads, kickpads, and steel toed black combat boots. Hannah's long wavy blonde hair is parted in the middle and falls down around her shoulders and down her back. Turning, she slips through the ropes and removes the dog tags from around her neck - setting them down in her corner, before doing a few last minute preparations as the song fades out.]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - The All-American Bad Ass herself has made quite an impression with her debut. As she said, she wasn't going to sit around and wait for her number to be called. As the result of it is what we're about to witness.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - This could definitely get interesting. Hannah wanted another match to see if Echo can in fact keep her cool and show her loyalty.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Alright folks, both fighters are in the ring now, this match is about to ignite!
[The bell sounds and this match is underway. Both Hannah and Echo stare each other down, trying to psychologically feel each other out. They draw to the center of the ring and lock horns. They shuffle around, trying to gain leverage and eventually Echo is pushed back into the turnbuckles. The two struggle to gain any advantage, and the referee breaks the two apart and orders them to go back to the center of the ring. They lock up again and Echo hits a toe drag and comes back up with an arm wrench. Hannah reverses it and puts Echo in a headlock. She whips Echo into the ropes and then delivers a heavy shoulder check. Hannah springs of the ropes, hops over Echo, and Echo jumps up to attempt a dropkick, but Hannah hangs onto the ropes, letting Echo fall flat on her back. Hannah immediately grabs Echo's legs and rolls up for a pin attempt, but Echo reverses it with a pin of her own. Hannah quickly kicks out and hits a seated judo toss. Echo gets a head scissors in to break free. Hannah then breaks free from the head scissors, and pulls a quick arm drag into an armbar. Echo head scissors again to break free and the two bolt straight up to their feet, and state each other down as the crowd roars in approval.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Great technical wrestling by these two.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - It's expected of Hannah, but Echo is really showing her diverse move set.
[They go back at it again with a collar and elbow tie up, but this time Echo hits a T-Bone suplex. Hannah isn't much fazed and springs straight up, but Echo whips her into the corner. Echo follows it with a double high knee to the face. She kicks Hannah in the midsection several times, then delivers a powerbomb into the turnbuckles. Echo makes a cover.]
And a quick kick out after two.
[Hannah now shoots in for a double leg takedown into the turnbuckles, and immediately mounts and drops some hard kidney punches. Hannah stands up and starts stomping on Echo, not letting up. Hannah picks Echo up off the mat, and slams her into the post. She climbs up to the middle rope and begins raining down heavy haymakers as the crowd counts...]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - It's good to know the fans know how to count to ten. Otherwise, this might get awkward!
[Hannah throws Echo out from the corner, and Echo is fumbling around to keep her footing. Hannah meanwhile jumps straight up to the top rope in one fluid motion, and awaits for her opponent to turn around. Hannah times it up perfectly with a pristine Missle drop kick, and then makes a cover.]
... Kickout by Echo!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Hannah is showing her strength advantage early in this matchup.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Hannah has six inches on Echo, but possibly more importantly she outweighs Echo by around 75 pounds!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Hannah turns me on and frightens me all at once.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - I think they call that a fear boner.
[Echo gets back to her feet and is looking a little frazzled and lost as she's getting desperate to get any sort of offense going. He nails Hannah with a Heart Punch and goes for a Pumphandle Powerbomb, but Hannah slides off her back, picks her up in a torture rack position, and out of nowhere hits the Killshot!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Oh my god! Killshot out of nowhere!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Echo's eyes are rolled back, she's done for!
[Hannah hooks the leg and makes the cover.]
[Ding ding ding]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, "The All-American Bad Ass" Hannah Kristiansen!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Well folks, Echo's night just ended early!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - That's the thing with Hannah. She's a skilled killer who, like a shark tasting blood, will not let up until she's been fed. In this case, Echo was dinner.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Now the thing we will have to wait and see, is if Echo makes good on her word, and doesn't ambush Hannah after this landslide victory.
["I'm America" blares over the PA system as Hannah and Echo have a stare down. The tension between the two is like two rabid dogs waiting for one to make a wrong move. Then, Echo reaches her hand out. Hannah, still uneasy, slowly extends her as the two shake. The crowd is somewhat dulled down, anticipating an attack. Echo smiles and rolls out of the ring and heads up the aisle as Hannah is still locked in. Have the two finally settled their differences now?]
Winner: Hannah Kristiansen via pinfall (Killshot)
chris andrew vs Brandon collins
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Scottsdale, Arizona, weighing in tonight at 204 lbs, he is Chris Andrew!
♫ AS I WALK IN THE DIRTY RAIN,
ACID SEEPING THROUGH MY BRAIN ... ♫
[In the darkened Arena, blue and yellow spotlights start flashing follow the guitar rhythm of "Renegade Cavalcade" by Ash. As the chorus hits, Chris Andrew dashes out from the curtain, stopping on the stage and staring at the crowd. A few moments later, he runs his way to the ring, sliding under the bottom rope and climbing on the turnbuckle, getting another view of the sold out crowd. As the music fades out, he jumps back to the ring with a perfect backflip, landing on one knee.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - With the release of the Battleground's first contracted fighter Trevor Miller, Chris Andrew now has the most seniority in this company.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - And yet, he's possibly the youngest kid in here. Just goes to show that he has the opportunity, barring any major injuries, to put in a lot of time here in the Battleground. And as long as he stays, he'll be the most tenured competitor in here.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Company Seniority means squat inside that ring. The Expert showed this guy a few pointers in their and the company's debut show.
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - And his opponent, from Virginia Beach, weighing in tonight at 203 lbs, representing the Alpha Wrestling Empire, "The Expert" Brandon Collins!
♫ COUNTING STARS BY NUJABES BEGINS TO PLAY ♫
[Suddenly the lights in the arena go out. The fans sit in pure darkness and confusion for a few seconds before Counting Stars by Nujabes plays through the PA system. This causes a mixed reaction mostly boos but some cheers. Then a lone spotlight shines on the stage to reveal The Expert Brandon Collins standing on stage with his arms spread out wide embracing the mixed reactions. After soaking in the boos and cheers for a few seconds Brandon slowly makes his way to the ring looking straight ahead at the ring, ignoring the fans to his left and right. He arrives at the ring, jumps up the apron and climbs the second turnbuckle. He looks at the sea of fans in attendance before spreading his arms out wide again. He jumps from the turnbuckle into the ring and stands in his corner.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Brandon Collins is one of those competitors that are currently sitting in Battleground purgatory. He stands at 1-1 overall. A win here will give him some groundwork to continue to climb up that ladder, but a loss could be detrimental.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I don't think he has to worry about this twerp Chris Andrew. He's beat him once already, he'll beat him again.
[The bell rings and these two rush to each other and lock up. It's clear there's no respect between these two men. Collins gets the leverage and backs Andrew up into the ropes. Collins lets go before the ref can warn him, but drives a kick to the abdomen of Chris as he lets go of the hold. Collins grabs Andrew by the head and judo tosses him to the mat. Chris, though, springs right back in to action, where Collins hits him with a belly-to-belly suplex.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Well this looks awfully familiar.
[Andrew again springs back up, and Collins whips him into the ropes. Andrew comes back and Collins hits a float over neckbreaker, and makes a cover.]
... Two! And a quick kickout right after two.
[Brandon jumps up and comes down hard with an elbow. He stands Andrew up, and drives him back down with a Half Nelson suplex. Brandon holds on to the waist and deadlifts Chris back up, and this time hits a reverse DDT. Brandon seems to be toying with the rookie now, and he picks him back up once more and drills him with a short range closeline, sending Andrew back flipping to his stomach. Collins rolls him over and goes for another pin attempt.]
... Th--kickout after a long two count.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Why did Chris Andrew drag himself into The Expert's business? He should know to walk away and move on to something else... Something a little easier.
[Collins and Andrew get to their feet, and Collins bounces off the rope and goes for a boot, but Andrew catches it. Andrew spins Collins around and hits several body jabs and finishes it with a roundhouse kick. Andrew now springs off the ropes but Collins catches with a big boot this time around. Andrew stays on his feet though, so Collins again goes for a boot, but Andrew dodges it with a back handspring and then rocks Collins with a German suplex and stays locked in for a pin.]
... Kick out by Collins!
[Collins lies on the ground as Andrew climbs to the top rope. Chris dials it in and goes for a moonsault, but Collins rolls out of the way. Andrew, however, is able to correct himself midair and land on his feet, and without hesitation hits another moonsault from the mat, this time landing on Collins. The crowd erupts after this high flying precision. Andrew again goes up top, but before he can fully set himself, Collins dives at his feet and trips him, sending Andrew dashing down! Collins now climbs up and looks to be setting up A superplex. Andrew starts to lay in jabs to stop the throw. Andrew drops Collins with a violent knee to the face. Andrew turns to the crowd then hits Collins with a reverse Frankensteiner! The crowd erupts big for the high spot. Andrew took an equal brunt of the move, but slowly crawls his way over to Collins to make a cover.]
... Thre-- No! Somehow Collins kicks out!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Both men are reeling after that move, but it looks like Chris Andrew has turned the tides.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I don't think that's the case. The Expert is just a nice guy who doesn't want his opponent to look too weak. I mean he does a good enough job on his own anyhow.
[Andrew and Collins get to their feet after a while. Once on their feet they're like stubborn bulls and they lock up once again. Collins gains wrist control and gets an arm wrench. Andrew cartwheels out of the pressure, Kip ups to loosen the hold and then is able to get a headlock in on Collins. Andrew delivers a hip toss but Collins gets a head scissors in to break free. The two spring back to their feet, but Andrew is a few steps quicker and bounces off the ropes and hits a running Hurricanrana. Collins gets back to his feet but is dazed now and starts swinging wildly. Andrew catches a haymaker and brings Collins in and up for a cutthroat neckbreaker!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Dr. Pepper Special!
[The crowd is going wild now as Andrew is climbing the ropes. He taunts the fallen Collins down below and then delivers a corkscrew Senton bomb and makes a cover!]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Canyon Dive!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - This one's over!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - No!
[Ding ding ding]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, Chris Andrew!
Winner: Chris Andrew via pinfall (Canyon Dive)
Crowbar vs Mega $tar
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall. From Long Beach, California standing at 6'5" and weighing tonight at 250 lbs, this is Crowbar!
["Mustang Nismo" by Brian Taylor featuring Slash begins to play over the PA system. The lights cut and red and white lights begin to pulse to the beat. Fans are on their feet in anticipation of the man called Crowbar. The crowd noise is beginning to die down and confusion is setting in as we've yet to see Crowbar make his presence known... His theme music loops over it's taking so long...]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Folks, we're not sure what exactly is going on right now. We've got a camera crew backstage with our very own Savannah Skye trying to figure out what the deal is.
[The music stops and the Jumbotron cuts to the locker room lounge area where Savannah Skye is walking around trying to find some answers. Skye and the camera crew are approaching a corner where a sign pointing to the right reads "Locker Rooms". As they turn the corner, we see Crowbar laying unconscious, busted wide open in a pool of his own blood. Savannah calls for medics as the people in the area shift to panic mode. The camera man redirects the view to the ground, then suddenly the video feed cuts out.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Uh, ladies and gentlemen, I don't know what to make of what we just saw, but it obviously looks like Crowbar is in no shape to compete tonight.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - He's been ambushed obviously. Do you think it was the Mega Star? I mean we know nothing about the guy. One can only assume since he requested this match that he'll most likely be suspect #1.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - I don't know, Drew. But we will keep everyone up to date with the latest news to this developing situation.
Winner: No Contest
Revenge is served best with burgers and armbars
[Scene comes up outside as we see Jason arriving at the arena. He doesn't have a match tonight but he has plans. He's wearing a black beanie on his head, leather jacket, black shirt, loose fitting jeans, and black steel toe boots. He has his bag resting on his shoulder as he stop and saw Trixie wearing a lilac cardigan paired with a bright, white “what happens in Vegas” T-shirt on with her shoulders cut to show off just a little shoulder in a string design. Her jeans were straight cut and had a little rhinestone design as she wheels in her bag and yawns just from getting off a plane.]
Jason Bourne - Trixie what are you doing here?
Trixie - I’m in a match...against Anton Chase. It's totally been advertised, sweetie.
[He rolls his eyes but smiles at her.]
Jason Bourne - Funny they want you face a pretty rich boy like him. But I guess they need to feed meat to the grinder right? Anyways I'm not wrestling tonight as I got other plans for a certain someone tonight.
Trixie - Who would that be? You’re not going to rough up Anton before my match, are you?
[Trixie giggles and pulls out of her the side strap of her bag a small granola bar to eat just the corner and offers him some. He shrugs his shoulders as he takes some of the granola bar and looks at her.]
Jason Bourne - Nah, I don't have time for pretty boys like that. But who knows maybe I will, maybe I won't? As of right now I have to pay someone back from Pico Rivera and I think we all know who that is?
[Trixie nods and finishes her granola bar bite.]
Trixie - I do, Maverick can’t walk away, right?
[He takes another bite and finishes off the granola bar.]
Jason Bourne - That's right. Maverick stole my moment, he cheated to beat me and that's just low. How can someone with his “Experience” needs to cheat while using the ropes against a rookie? But I did pay him back that day, but its not enough for me...I want to make him squeal like a pig he is.
Trixie - What a coincidence! I’m actually looking to make Anton tap out to me tonight with my Armbar. We should definitely accomplish that tonight, make a big memory at Battle of Los Angeles, you got to have something to tell your girlfriend tonight, right?
Jason Bourne - Right. As of right now I need some real food. Let's hope this company have some real food in catering and when I mean real food, I mean McDonalds and how greasy their burgers are.
Trixie - I’m going to eat light, because I have ANOTHER victory over Anton to get. Fancy joining me for a salad and whatever you’re having?
Jason Bourne - I think that can be arranged. After all nothing better then plotting destruction then a good greasy cheeseburger and fries with a side of diet coke.
[He pats his stomach.]
Jason Bourne - I'm on a strict diet.
[He then starts to laugh. Trixie giggles to and shakes her head.]
Trixie - Ok, let’s eat then I’ll defeat Anton.
[Trixie leads him in to the building. Jason smirks.]
Jason Bourne - Girl got some serious attitude and I love it.
[He continues to smirk as the camera goes to black.]
anton chase vs trixie
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Los Angeles, California, standing at 5'9" and weighing in at 210 lbs. Representing Redemption Wrestling, "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 way and a person is seen behind the white smoke. The person steps forward in front of the white smoke, revealing "The Wrestling God" Anton Chase. He makes his way down the ramp, with a cocky smile on his face and his arms out at the side. He 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.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Dick, earlier you alluded that Anton needs this win tonight, otherwise, this rivalry is no more.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Right, as of now Trixie is 2-up on Anton. Yeah, she won her first bout by a low blow. But their second encounter was a 2-outta-3 falls match which Trixie won there as well. If she goes 3-up on him tonight, it's time to pull the plug.
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - And his opponent, standing at 5'6" tall and also representing Redemption Wrestling, she is Trixie!
♫ I'M ON MY SECOND DRINK, BUT I'VE HAD A FEW BEFORE... ♫
[Trixie comes out, where her custom Trixie Championship, and does a twirl to bend over and showcase her firm apple bottom to the crowd. 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 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.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - We want to bring us all up to speed and that's the fact that both Anton and Trixie wrestled less than 24 hours ago in Japan at Redemption Wrestling's Glory event. Thanks to time zone differences, they were able to wrestle, catch a flight back to the states, and make it out here in Battle of Los Angeles.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Performing in two events on near opposite ends of the earth on technically the same day. Not many could check this off their list. You could call this a Red Eye Rumble.
[The bell sounds and this match is under way! Anton and Trixie immediately go after each other with a collar and elbow tie up. Anton leads first with an arm wrench back behind Trixie. Trixie winces in pain, but does a cartwheel to alleviate the hold and hits Anton with a snapmare. Trixie keeps a hold of Anton's arm, and drops her legs around and locks in an armbar. Anton scurries out quickly, but still keeps a hold of Trixie's hand. Chase stands up, and hurls Trixie in the air with a monkey flip. The two stand back up and Anton hits a short range lariat.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Fast paced action to start us off in this match.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - These two are very familiar with each other, so I wouldn't be surprised if we saw some new maneuvers from these two, to try and gain an edge.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I'd lose to Trixie every time too! There's certain things that bounce around during her matches that would cause me to lose my focus!
[Anton picks Trixie up and whips her into the ropes. On the return she's met with a destructive drop kick from Chase. Chase picks her back up by her hair, and this time sends her back down with a Russian leg sweep. Anton makes a quick cover.]
... Tw-- a quick kickout by Trixie.
[Trixie stands back up, but Anton stays on her with a chip block behind the knees. Anton whips Trixie again into the ropes, this time hitting a furious says lite DDT! Anton hooks the leg.]
[Trixie looks a little off her game at the start of the match, but she rebounds with a hip toss on Anton. She immediately begins kicking and stomping Chase to try and wear him down. Trixie taunts to the crowd for a moment, then hits a Sexy leg drop and following it up with another armbar. Chase struggles for a while but eventually makes his way to the ropes to break free. Trixie pops up quickly, waiting for the vet to follow. He he stands on his own, Trixie gets in a sneaky eye poke, temporarily blinding Chase. Anton is circling the ring trying to see, but Trixie lays him out with a Spicy Super kick! Trixie hooks the leg for the cover.]
... Thr-- No a timely kick out by Anton.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Atta-girl! Stick your finger in there!
[Trixie stays on the offensive with lightening fast strikes all across Anton's body. She now picks him up by his hair and whips him into the ropes. Anton however, reverses the whip, sending Trixie instead ricocheting off the cables. Trixie returns back dodging an elbow smash, springs off the opposite side, and meets Anton again but with a sunset flip! Trixie grasps the legs and goes for the cover.]
... Thre-- No! A close call by Anton!
[Trixie is looking a little aggravated at this point as she has yet to out Anton away for good. She gets back up and again lays in some stiff kicks mainly to Anton's midsection. Trixie picks Anton up and whips him into the turnbuckles. She sprints towards him going for a forearm smash but Chase lifts his boot just in time to stop her in her tracks. Chase then goes for a running leg lariat but Trixie ducks it and continues her fast combo strikes. Chase catches her leg and counters her with a dragon screw. The two pop right back up and Trixie hits an armdrag. Back up again, Chase whips Trixie into the ropes, and on the return lifts her up in a fireman's carry and transitions into a double knee gut buster! Trixie stays on her feet but is crouched over in pain. Anton picks her up for a cradle Piledriver and goes for the pin.]
... Thre--No! Somehow Trixie kicks out!
[Anton looks like he's had enough, he slides out of the ring and reaches under the ring skirt. He pulls a steel chair out and slides back into the ring.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - We've got company!
[Chase winds up and launches several brutal chair shots to the head and knees intermittently.]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Anton has snapped!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Stay close by me, Drew.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - I got you, bro.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Really!?
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - ... no.
[Chase sends one final shock-wave chair shot to Trixie and then tosses the chair to the canvas. He picks Trixie up and sets her up and hits the Chaos Theory! Chase makes a cover.]
[Ding ding ding]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, "The Wrestling God" Anton Chase!
[Chase has his hand raised in victory, but then goes over to Trixie's corner. Chase gets down and raises the Trixie Title high above his head. Chase then snaps the buttons on around him and walks up the aisle with Trixie's belt!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Chase is heading out with Trixie's gold!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - He better hurry before a big bastard named Bourne comes strolling out here.
Winner: Anton Chase via pinfall (Chaos Theory)
the outliers vs ketsuekigata z
[The bell rings. Mike “Drop” Dempsey and the imposing Nigel Crane stand in the ring.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - I have been looking forward to this match for sometime now! It is the start of tag team wrestling here in Union Battleground!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Right you are Reed! The Outliers and Ketsuekigata Z are two of the best tag teams in the industry today and it was an absolute coup that Graves was able to get four of the best wrestlers into the Union Battleground ring today!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I’m just looking forward to starring at Kimitsu Zombie for the match!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Would you shut up Dick?
Mike “Drop” Dempsey - The following contest is your Tag Team Special Features match up! Introducing first! They weighed in today at a combined weight of 340 pounds! They are two-thirds of the Guerreros of Lucha Trios Champion... Sawtooth Grin, He Who Corrupts! THEY ARE!!! THE OUTLIERS!!!
♫ IT CAME FROM OVER THERE BY RED CHORD BEGINS TO PLAY ♫
[As It Came From Above plays, HWC and Sawtooth Grin step onto the entrance ramp to a loud explosion of cheers. HWC has his trademark skateboard under his arm and both are wearing backwards ball caps. HWC skates to the ring as Sawtooth Grin menacingly steps forward. They slide into the ring. Nigel Crane steps forwards and hands them the Warped Tag Team Championship which they hold high in the air.]
The Crowd – LONG LIVE WARPED! LONG LIVE WARPED! LONG LIVED WARPED!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - The Union Battleground faithful are showing their appreciation for the last Warped Tag Team Champions!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - The crowd is positively deafening. The fans cheering for those who gave it their all in Warped Wrestling.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - They are probably going to be singing a different tune after Ketsuekigata Z gets ahold of them.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - I don’t think this crowd cares tonight Dick! I think what they care about is seeing great tag team wrestling! These two teams are going to put on an absolute clinic.
Mike “Drop” Dempsey – AND! Their opponent! They weighed in at a combined weight of 355 lbs! Representing Alpha Wrestlign Empire! THEY ARE KETSUEKIGATA Z!!!
♫ SAYONARA, PERFECT WORLD BY MIDORI BEGINS TO PLAY ♫
[The crowd burst into another round of cheers as Kimitsu Zombie AKA Little Yokai and Aokigahara Zombie AKA Bakemono make their way onto the entrance ramp. The two Japanese wrestlers make their way to the ring glaring daggers into The Outliers. KGZ roll into the ring. The referee steps in between the two teams, maintaining order as Dempsey and Crane step out of the ring.]
The Crowd – KGZ! KGZ! KGZ!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - The crowd is absolutely rabid for this one. Warped chants and KGZ chants are fighting with one another!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - I guess no matter who wins, we all win!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I’m rock hard already!
[The ref sends HWC and Bakemono to the apron. Little Yokai and Sawtooth Grin look to be starting off the match. The two take their corners, each wrestler receives one last round of encouragement from their corner, and the bell rings!]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - And we are off!
[Yokai and Sawtooth Grin lock up in the center of the ring. Grin gets the better of Yokai as he pushes her to one of the empty corners. Grin throws Yokai into the opposing turnbuckle and charged forward to meet her in the corner for a clothesline. Yokai hits the ground as Grin runs to the other corner. He charges for the corner again, but the agile Yokai dodges Sawtooth Grin’s knee which slams into one of the turnbuckles. Yokai Spins to the apron and springboards off the top rope for a tornado DDT.]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Dios mio! Look at the agility on the Kimitsu Zombie. Sawtooth Grin better be cautious!
[Kimitsu Zombie and Sawtooth Grin get to their feet. However, Sawtooth Grin is ready himself. He kicks her in the gut and hits a vicious DDT of his own.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I think he is plenty cautious Stevenson!
[Sawtooth Grin tags in HWC who steps between the ropes. He hits a running elbow drop onto the back of Little Yokai who wrenches her back in pain. HWC rolls her over for a pin, hooking the leg.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - It is going to take far more than a DDT, an elbow, and a leg hook to put KGZ away!
[HWC locks in a leg lock on Kimitsu Zombie. Kimitsu rolls through and kicks HWC in the face, forcing him to break the hold on her. Kimitsu Zombie leaps up and hits a standing head scissor spike into the mat on HWC. Kimitsu Zombie tags in Bakemono. Together, the two throw HWC into the ropes. They attempt to hit a double clothesline but HWC, but HWC ducks the clothes line. He goes for a double springboard cross body. But Bakemono and Kimistu Zombie catch HWC. They throw him onto Bakemono’s shoulders who hits a big drop while Kimtisu zombie hits a modified cutter. Bakemono goes for the pin as Kimitsu Zombie rolls out of the ring.]
SAWTOOTH GRIN BREAKS THE PIN!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - What a hit on He Who Corrupts! He is lucky Sawtooth Grin was there to break up the pin.
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - He was doing great there for a little while. But man… It would be hard for any man to kick out of that modified cutter on the part of KGZ!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Tight match but it looks like KGZ has been able to get the upper hand.
[The ref forces Sawtooth Grin to his corner. Bakemono picks up HWC. But HWC, having rested, is ready for him. He hits a jawbreaker on Bakemono soon followed by a clothesline. HWC, gets up, grasping his neck, and tags in Sawtooth Grin.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Guess I was a little premature!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - That a regular occurrence for you Thrasher?
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - HEY!
[Sawtooth Grin steps into the ring, ready to pick up the pace. He hits a baseball slide kick onto Bakemono’s head. He picks up Bakemono for a reverse neck breaker. After that he locks in a chin lock, wrenching the neck of Bakemono.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Excellent work from The Outliers! They are working the neck of Bakemono to perfection.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Kimitsu Zombie better get in there!
[Sawtooth Grin wrenches the neck of Bakemono who grunts in agony as Grin wrenches back even harder. Little Yokai, seeing all she can take, gets in the ring and kicks Sawtooth Grin in the teeth. The ref admonishes her and sends her back to her corner. Sawtooth checks to make sure his mouth isn’t bleeding and tags in HWC. The two men lift Bakemono up and hits a double suplex on the wrestler. HWC goes for the cover.]
KIMTISU ZOMBIE BREAKS UP THE PIN!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Bakemono needs to make a tag and get Little Yokai into this match!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Right you are Reed! If he doesn’t make that tag then KGZ will be the Atlanta Falcons of this match up.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - What is with the random Super Bowl reference?
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - It is topical DICK!
[HWC picks up Bakemono. He hits a second neck breaker on Bakemono followed by a knee to the upper body. Bakemono rolls over which prompts HWC to hit a springboard knee drop onto the back of Bakemono’s neck. HWC locks in a camel clutch which Kimitsu Zombie easily breaks up. The ref forces her back to her corner as HWC gives a number of swift kicks to the back of the head of Bakemono. However, he delievers one too many kicks for Bakemono’s liking who grabs the leg and hits a spinning heel drag on HWC. HWC grabs his knee in pain as Bakemono begins to crawl towards his corner. Kimitsu is waiting, her arm is outstretched! She is trying to reach with all her powers. BUT HWC is able to come to and hit a leaping senton onto the back of Bakemono.]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - OH! So close and yet so far away!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - It may be academic at this point!
[HWC drags Bakemono back to the center of the ring. He sends two closed fists to the back of Bakemono’s neck and then locks in a chinlock on him, wrenching on his neck. Bakemono begins to fade.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - This is the beginning of the end! It is almost over!

Sawtooth Grin grabs Bakemono but Bakemono hits an Enziguri on Sawtooth Grin, dazing him. Sawtooth Grin tries to grab him, but it is too late, Bakemono tags in Kimitsu Zombie.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Little Yokai gets the tag!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Things are about to get real!
[Kimtisu Zombie leaps over the top rope and hits a flying forearm on Sawtooth Grin as Bakemono rolls to the outside of the ring. Kimitsu lunges forward, hitting a charging HWC! Kimitsu Zombie hits a lunging lariat on Sawtooth Grin. He stands up. She hits another one. He stands up. She hits another one. She throws him against the ropes and clotheslines him to the outside.

"The Doctor" Dante Reed - FLYING CROSS BODY FROM KIMITSU ZOMBIE!!!
[Bakemono, suddenly feeling better, runs the ropes himself, and springboards over for a tope suicide!]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - TOPE SUICIDO FROM BAKEMONO!!!! WHAT A MOVE!!!
[The four wrestlers get to their feet. The referee becksons them to get back into the ring, but they are not listening. HWC throws Kimistu Zombie into the steel ring steps as Bakemono throws Sawtooth Grin into the ring post. The two look at one another and begin throwing left and rights into the face of one another. Bakemono picks him up and hits an atomic drop. While HWC is holding his nether region, Bakemono hits a stiff clothesline onto HWC.]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - The ref has lost all control over this match!!!
[Sawtooth Grin and Kimitsu Zombie roll into the ring. Sawtooth Grin gets the upper hand on Kimitsu Zombie who rolls her up for a pin.
.. KICK OUT!
[Kimitsu Zombie flips it around for a pin on Sawtooth Grin.]
[Kimitsu Zombie attempts a roll up small package but both wrestlers end up with their shoulders pinned to the ground.]
BOTH KICK OUT!!!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - We were half of a second away from a draw in the Outliers vs. KGZ affair!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - That would have given me some blue balls!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Classy!
[HWC and Bakemono come to and roll into the ring. KGZ and The Outliers each take a corner. All four wrestlers now squared up to a post... A fighter around every corner. The ref asks them to return to the aprons, but no one is budging. Each fighter keeping their head on a swivel and plotting their next move. Then, like a Roman battle, everyone comes colliding in the center of the ring! Kimitsu hits a spear on Grin while HWC lays out Bakemono with a diving lariat over Kimitsu! Again an all out brawl ensues and all the ref can do is focus on the legal fighters of Grin and Kimitsu. While HWC and Bakemono brawl on one side of the ring, Kimitsu mounts Grin and drops furious elbows. Grin bridges out and gets to his feet. The two ping pong haymakers back and forth. Then Bakemono strikes Grin in the back with a heavy axe handle. It's a two-on-one attack until HWC jumps in to even the score. Punches thrown wildly like a wild west cartoon, neither team is gaining much of an advantage. Bakemono whips HWC but HWC reverses it. Aokigahara bounces back and goes overboard as HWC hangs and lowers the top rope. Now it's a two-on-one on Kimitsu as The Outliers do their signature annoy and toy routine. Kimitsu drops to a knee as she is overpowered. HWC then literally hits the famous Street Fighter Ryu's signature move, yelling at the top of his lungs "HADOUKEN!!" HWC then devastates Kimitsu with a Ganso Bomb he calls the Disasterpeace! The crowd is going wild! Grin notices Bakemono slowly getting up to his feet from the outside, and he points it out to HWC. HWC springs off the ropes and hurdles over the top rope to crumble Aokigahara with a Kamikaze Dropkick!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - O' God, the Aftermath! Aokigahara and HWC are down for the count on the outside!
[Grin seizes the opportunity with Kimitsu and looks to finish it with his version of the stunner! Grin hook the leg!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - The Thumbsucker! Grin and Kimitsu are the legal fighters, and Gri is looking to cap it off!
[Ding ding ding]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here are your winners, The Outliers!
[HWC slides in the ring and he and Grin celebrate as they raise the GOL Trios Championships and WARPED Unified Tag Team Championships high in the air! Being the good sports that they are, The Outliers help up Kimitsu and Aokigahara as the referee hands them their AWE Tag Team Championships. All four fighters raise each other's hand in the air and the crowd is in absolute pandemonium! Finally all four take a bow as if they just finished the final scene in a Broadway act.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Oh my god! What an epic bout we just witnessed!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - After this exhibition, Axel Graves may want to consider building a tag team division! The crowd here is deafening! Instant classic!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I'm so hard I think I might pass out! Drew, call a doctor! And not Dante, a real one!
Winners: The Outliers via pinfall (Thumbsucker)
sakaguchi kyoshi vs Emery Layton
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - The following contest is scheduled for one fall, and it is for the Union Battleground Trench War Championship! Introducing first, accompanied by Justin King, weighing in at 195 lbs. and hailing from Tokyo, Japan, this is Sakaguchi Kyoshi!
♫ SEIYA SESSESSE SEIYA.
SEIYA SESSESSE SEIYA.
SOIYA SOSSOSSO SOIYA.
SOIYA SOSSOSSO SOIYA. ♫
[The lights are cut. "Karate" by Baby Metal begins to play as blue, red, and yellow strobe lights flash through the blackness. Sakaguchi Kyoshi then steps onto the stage and through the flashing lights alone... No sleazeball Justin King. Kyoshi walks to the ring, high fiving fans as he walks down the ramp and towards the ring. Kyoshi steps between the ropes, entering the ring.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Coming down now is Kyoshi, flying solo per his request. He has been quite an enigma so far in Union Battleground.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - I'd say, from what I've seen of him, he's loaded with potential. He was shafted in the opening round by Alec Villiers, but got a second chance when Villiers was no longer able to compete under an undisclosed circumstance. Then he goes on to defeat a legend like Malcolm Dred-King in the quarterfinals. He's kind of been all over the board in his short stay here.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Yeah but he finally got what he deserved when Devereaux laid him out and eliminated him from the tournament. And now what? He gets ANOTHER shot at a championship! I agree with Devereaux, he's an undeserving "young lion" who needs to be put in his place!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - But Dick, you gotta admire his moral standards when he chose to keep it clean against Devereaux and chose not to use the brass knuckles that his shady manager Justin King gave him.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Yeah, well... Look where it got him. He lost his shot at the Union Battleground Championship. Dick's in, Kyoshi's out... No pun intended. This isn't the honorable and respectful Japanese Indy scenes, it's the Battleground, where you gotta lie, cheat, and steal to gain an advantage!
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - And his opponent, from anywhere and everywhere, standing at 5'6", she represents the Xtreme Wrestling Alliance, Emery Layton!
♫ EVERY TIME THAT I CRY OUT, NO ONE EVER COMES TO ME,
EVERY TIME THAT I REACH OUT, NO ONE EVER RESCUES ME ♫
[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, 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.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Guys, I try to stay impartial when it comes to these competitors, but I have to admit, I am a fan of Emery Layton.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Who isn't? She doesn't know the word quit, and even though at times she doesn't have her stuff together, she never gives up. She's the ultimate underdog, and everyone loves a good story of perseverance.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - And I mean, she's easy on the eyes, so that's a plus!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Dude, you've got no chance!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Referee Joe Murray calls for the bell, and this match is underway!
[As the bell rings, Layton and Kyoshi come to the center of the ring, and fist bump in a quick gesture of respect, and then it's game on! The two feel each other out, cautiously grabbing for wrist control. They eventually hook a collar and elbow tie up, which each one taking turns trying to push off to get the leverage advantage. Kyoshi hits a duck under and gets behind Emery. Kyoshi hops up and brings Layton down with an attempted banana split, but she rolls with the momentum and gets to a seated position. Kyoshi hits a hard forearm crossface and continues back down to the mat. Kyoshi goes for an armbar, but Emery slips out from between Kyoshi's legs. The two now stand on their feet, and Emery charges at Kyoshi and jumps legs first to lock in an armbar and rolls Lyoshi back down to the mat. Kyoshi follows through with the momentum of the roll and gets Emery turned to her stomach, where Kyoshi slips out of the hold. Kyoshi goes for a single leg Boston crab, but now Emery rolls to her back and kicks Kyoshi off of her. Emery kip ups to her feet, and the two engage in an intense stare down as the crowd goes wild!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Sakaguchi is one of the most pristine technicians we've seen in the Battleground, but I don't think he expected Emery to go toe-to-toe with him!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - She's known more for her brawling and aerial attacks, but it's obvious she has trained hard to expand her repertoire for this title match.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I'm out of breath just watching this unfold!
[After their stare down, Kyoshi springs off the ropes and goes for an lower attack on Emery, but she leap frogs over him. Kyoshi on the return goes for a flying closeline, but Emery ducks that. Third time ricocheting off the ropes, Kyoshi goes for another flying closeline, the two hook at the elbow, Kyoshi turns Emery around and nails her with a spinning neckbreaker!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Great focus and concentration by Kyoshi to follow the botched closeline with a spinning neckbreaker!
[Kyoshi stops Layton from getting to her feet with a snapmare, and follows it up with a springboard missle drop kick. Kyoshi back to his feet, and now delivers a double leg drop, and then locks in an armbar! Emery is kicking and fighting her way out, but Kyoshi won't let go. Emery is determined to break the hold somehow, but Kyoshi's strength is too much. She starts crawling her way towards the ropes, inch by inch she gets closer. Finally, she is able to grasp the bottom rope, forcing Kyoshi to break the hold. Emery cradles her arm and she's in obvious pain. Kyoshi starts laying in stiff kicks to the body of Emery. Kyoshi lets off of the combo strikes, allowing Emery to slowly rise to her feet, but before she fully stands up, Kyoshi delivers a stinging DDT. Kyoshi makes a cover.]
... And a quick kick out after two!
[After the kickout, Kyoshi pushes Emery over to her stomach and tried to lock in an STF, but Emery quickly breaks free of his grip and rolls outside of the ring to recoup. Kyoshi however is not letting up, he springs off the opposite ropes and comes back with a hellacious Tope Suicido! The impact knocks both Kyoshi and Emery to the barricade, and the crowd roars in excitement!]
THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - What a death defying move by Kyoshi!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Sakaguchi sacrifices his own body to send Emery through the barricades.
[Layton and Kyoshi lay motionless for a while as the crowd continues to cheer on for both of these fighters. Kyoshi is the first one up, and picks up Emery. Emery out of nowhere lays in a stiff right jab, stunning Kyoshi. Kyoshi retaliates with right jab of his own. The two exchange jabs back and forth until Kyoshi ducks an exaggerated haymaker, and hits Emery with a Blue Thunder bomb down to the ringside mat!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Blue Thunder Bomb!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Emery is out cold! She may be in trouble!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Kyoshi has been on the offensive this entire match. This whipper-snapper may be on the verge of ending it here soon!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Notice guys that referee Joe Murray hasn't even started his 10-count yet, he knows Graves wants a clear cut winner here, and after Franklin Dean's dismissal, Murray is happy to oblige by the bossman's rules!
[The crowd is on fire as both competitors are sprawled out on the outside floor. Kyoshi manages to pull himself up by the ring apron, and continues his ascension. He gets up to the ring and looks in at Emery, dialing in his scope. Sakaguchi turns back, beats on his chest, and point up to the heavens. Kyoshi springs off the middle rope and goes for a moonsault, but Emery manages to roll out from under him in time! Kyoshi smacks hard into the ground, and he looks to be knocked out.]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Costly mistake by the Young Lion!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - This is Emery's chance now to make a comeback rally!
[The fatigue is sinking in for these two and are slow to move. Emery now gets to her feet, and picks Kyoshi up and rolls him back into the ring. Kyoshi muscles his way up to his feet as Emery slides into the ring. Kyoshi is in a daze, and Emery capitalizes with a running bulldog. Layton picks him back up, and delivers a furious combo strike to the head and torso of Kyoshi. She's getting amped up with the strikes, and finishes it off with an enziguri, sending Lyoshi backpedaling to the turnbuckle. Emery puts Kyoshi in her crosshairs, and drives a vicious step up enziguri to the temple of Kyoshi! Sakaguchi is fumbling off from the turnbuckle, trying to stay upright. Layton behind him continues the assault with a rewind-rana! The crowd is getting behind Layton now. Layton pops back up to her feet, then hits a standing moonsault Senton! She hooks the leg for a cover.]
... Kickout at two!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Emery now looks to have turned the tables on Kyoshi.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - That ill-fated moonsault from the apron took Kyoshi out of the game.
[Layton's adrenaline continues to rush as she picks Kyoshi up. Layton whips Lyoshi into the ropes, comes back and ducks an attempted forearm smash, and bounces again and gets hit with a short running high knee by Emery. Kyoshi hunches over holding his nose, and Layton delivers the switchblade! Emery picks Kyoshi up off the mat, and whips him into the ropes. Kyoshi bounces back and counters Emery with a tilt-a-whirl DDT! Kyoshi with the cover']
... Thr-- No, a close Kickout at two!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Kyoshi with a stellar counter!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - He's looking to regain the momentum and that DDT certainly helps!
[Kyoshi now is getting amped up again as he looks to take the match back in his hands. Kyoshi picks Emery up and whips her into the corner. Kyoshi follows suit with a big splash, collapsing the air from Emery. Kyoshi picks and sits Emery up on the top turnbuckle. Kyoshi makes the climb, and continues picking Emery up, and eventually both are standing on the top turnbuckle. The fans cheer on as each step is taken, and now the arena is in utter chaos and Kyoshi hooks Emery's arm over his head. Everyone in the building senses what Kyoshi is about to do. Kyoshi channels all of his strength and rains down a massive superplex! Both fighters are down, and again referee Joe Murray neglects to begin his 10-count, allowing both to recoup from such a big move.]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Kyoshi again sacrificing his own safety in order to try and win this thing.
[Kyoshi gets to his feet, and heads back towards the turnbuckle. The crowd begins to roar again, wondering what's about to happen. Kyoshi stands at the top, waiting for Emery to move. Eventually she struggles her way up to her feet , and turns at the perfect moment that Kyoshi connects with s textbook cross body! Kyoshi hooks the leg for the cover.]
... Thre-- No! Another close kick out!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Kyoshi has got to stay focused, the win's in reach!
[Kyoshi looks on in a bit of disbelief and awe. He gets to his feet, and brings Emery up with him. The two lock up and have a bit of a power struggle, and just then the crowd starts reacting as Justin King makes his way down the aisle.]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Guys we saw Kyoshi request his manager to stay away from ringside and let him do this on his own, but it seems King has seen enough and may come out to do something about it.
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - I wonder what Kyoshi is going to think when he sees King out at ringside.
[Back to the action, Emery slingshots Kyoshi into the ropes and flattens Kyoshi with a running front drop kick. She notices King is at ringside now, and she goes over to him and talks some trash to him and pointing back to the backstage area. She finished her rant with the sleazy manager and turns her attention back to Kyoshi, who darts up and out of nowhere hits the Kyo Driver!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - King's distraction with Layton allows Kyoshi to recover and deliver the Lyo Driver! This is it, we will have a new champion!
[Kyoshi hooks the leg.]
... Wait, no! The ref catches Emery's foot is dangling on the ropes!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Wow! What great ring awareness!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - For Emery or the ref?
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Both! Emery lucked out on that one.
[Kyoshi is obviously aggravated that the pin was nullified by the rope break, but gets to his feet to go after it again. As he stands straight up, he notices Justin King at ringside, now looking like a guilty puppy. Kyoshi points down at his manager and gives him the third degree. He's demanding King to go back to the locker room. The two go back and forth for a while until King finally concedes and makes his way back up the aisle. Meanwhile, all the bickering allowed Emery to regain her composure and climb the turnbuckle. She stalked Kyoshi like a vulture until he finally turned around and ate a monstrous Prikasa! The crowd erupts and she wastes no time in making the cover.]
[Ding ding ding]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey - Here is your winner, AND NEW Union Battleground Trench War Champion, Emery Layton!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - My god, she did it! Emery Layton is the new Union Battleground Trench War Champion!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Dante, when you think about it, she is the first official champion in Union Battleground! What a feat!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - She talked earlier this week about how the Trench War Championship is the fighter's championship, and I couldn't agree more. She's fought tooth and nail to get where she is now, and never once displayed a hint of giving up. And tonight, she's rewarded for her efforts.
Winner: Emery Layton via pinfall (Prikasa)
tweeDeR vs dick devereaux
Mike "Drop" Dempsey – Ladies and gentlemen…the following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the Union Battleground Championship!
[The crowd goes nuts as the camera focuses in on the Union Battleground Championship which rests on the time keeper’s table, glistening in all of it’s glory]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey – Introducing first…from Washington, D.C., standing 6’ feet, two inches tall and weighing in at 243 lbs., "The Butcher" DICK DEVEREAUX!
♫ YOU FUCKING BLEED NOW! ♫
["Everyone Bleeds Now" By Hatebreed suddenly hits and the lights begin to flash violently to the beat. The ramp puts out smoke as red lasers begin to strobe around the arena. Dick Devereaux comes out from the back through the smoke with an irritated look spread across his face and a water bottle in hand. He comes to the edge of the ramp as he extends both arms towards the sky with his middle fingers pointed out at the crowd. He looks around before he begins to nod his head to the beat and begins to pour the water bottle over his head. He tosses the water bottle into the audience as he continues to nod his head to the beat. He begins to bend over as he holds his bald head. He then violently starts to bang his head as he begins to punch himself over and over again. Dick then flips his wet head up and raises his fists before lowering them and beginning down the ramp. Dick is now at the end of the ramp as he runs and hops up onto the apron. He looks around before holding up his middle fingers outwards towards the crowd. He then slowly brings them down to the camera and spews off a few hateful words before stepping into the ring through the ropes. Dick walks over to the farthest turnbuckle and steps to the second rope. He looks around and then bends down and starts to head bang, letting water from his head soak the crowd below. He then flips his head up and raises his fists slowly before hoping down. Dick walks over to the ropes and steps on the middle one with his right leg and the bottom one with his left as he bounces on the ropes, staring at the crowd. His music dies down as Dick ditches his leather jacket and waits in the corner, pacing back and forth ready as ever for this Championship match]
Mike "Drop" Dempsey – And his opponent…hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, standing 6 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing 230 lbs., he is "The UltraViolent Icon”…TWEEDER!
♫ CAN'T YOU SEE, I'M EASILY BOTHERED BY PERSISTENCE?
ONE STEP FROM LASHING OUT AT YOU! ♫
[The lights go out and "Walk" by Pantera begins to play. The crowd in unison sings the first verse and finally the famous chorus hits and rocks the arena... RE! SPECT! WALK! ...what did you say? RE! SPECT! WALK! ...are you talkin' to me? The lights come back on inside the arena and we see the UltraViolent Icon Tweeder standing at the top of the entrance ramp holding a weed whacker in one hand and an open beer in the other. The crowd surrounding him goes absolutely crazy as Tweeder chugs the beer before tossing the foamy, empty can into the crowd! The weed whacker blade spins slowly as the engine idles. The heavy guitar riffs continue to blare through the PA system yet they barely cut through the loud cheering of the Bleacher Creatures - especially as Tweeder revs the engine to that extremely dangerous weapon! Tweeder turns his attention towards the ring, and he begins to walk down the entrance ramp with a purpose!]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Tweeder looks anxious as ever to get this one under way as he paces the ring here!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Who would be anxious to fight Dick Devereaux? Tweeder might need his head checked!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - You forget Thrasher, this is “The UltraViolent Icon” we are talking about here, he doesn’t care who he gets in that ring with!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Great point Drew!
[Each man stands in his assigned corner as referee Bruce O'Neil walks over to Devereaux and Tweeder individually, showing them the Union Battleground Championship to confirm their acceptance of the match. Devereaux nods in response to O'Neil but when he heads over to Tweeder, he doesn’t even acknowledge him, he keeps pacing back and forth in his corner. O'Neil walks to the middle of the ring and raises the Championship high, showing it to the audience on each side of the ring, then hands the belt to the time keeper, assumes his position in the middle of the ring and signals for the bell]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Here we go! History will be made as we crown the first Union Battleground Champion!
[Devereaux begins to slowly walk to the middle of the ring while Tweeder remains pacing; keeping his eyes locked on Devereaux with each stride he takes. Devereaux gets to the middle of the ring, stops and signals with his hands for Tweeder to come get some. Tweeder continues pacing though, now grunting loudly as Devereaux looks on. Devereaux begins looking to the crowd as if to say “what’s this guy on?”, when Tweeder notices the slight distraction and runs full speed at Devereaux, tackling him to the ground. Tweeder uses his knees to keep Devereaux’s arms down, then begins delivering devastating lefts and rights while mounted on Dick’s chest]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Tweeder takes advantage of the slight opening!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Smart strategy by Tweeder!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Strategy!?! What a blindsided cheap shot!
[Devereaux counters the mounted barrage of fists by using his leg strength to bring them up, reverse head scissor Tweeder and pulls Tweeder’s body backwards awkwardly off of him with a slight flip which causes Tweeder to land stomach first. Devereaux gets up to follow up on the advantage but Tweeder gets to his feet just as quick and they lock up. Almost without hesitation Devereaux throws a head butt to the bridge of Tweeder’s nose that causes him to step back, clutching his nose while Devereaux hits the ropes and bounces off of them, delivering a massive clothesline that sends Tweeder to the mat on his back]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Huge clothesline by Dick Devereaux!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Great full extension of his arm Dante, almost taking Tweeder’s head off!
[Devereaux begins to stomp away at Tweeder’s chest, but Tweeder catches Devereaux’s boot on the third stomp and pushes Devereaux’s leg back, causing him to stumble backwards, Tweeder scurries to his feet, still bending down, running forward and chop blocks Devereaux’s right knee, causing him to do a front flip and land on his back]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Desperation move there by Tweeder!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Well, I have heard that the word ‘desperation’ sums up Tweeder’s sex life Dante!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - I don’t even want to know how or why you know about Tweeder’s sex life Dick.
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Well then, you don’t want to hear what I know about your sex life, or lack thereof one Drew!
[Tweeder, seeing the opportunity present itself, hurries over to the turnbuckle, climbs to the top and comes off with a glorious shooting star press as the cameras flash throughout the crowd. As Tweeder comes down though, Devereaux rolls just out of the way and climbs to his feet. After the loud and hard crash of the missed shooting star press, Tweeder gets up clutching his abdomen, turns around and is met with a running high knee to the already injured nose from a Devereaux head butt earlier. Tweeder’s blood sprays into the air from his nose as he falls back to the mat causing a roar from the crowd]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Tweeder looks to have a busted nose from that running high knee!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - And Tweeder is down on the canvas, in a lot of pain!
[Devereaux moves in while Tweeder is clutching his nose and begins laying into Tweeder with Garvin stomps. Devereaux then holds onto the ropes and uses his legs to drive Tweeder chest first out of the ring and down to the thin mat overlaying the concrete]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Devereaux taking the fight to the outside now!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Remember, there must be a winner here meaning no count outs or disqualifications!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - This could get nastier than a German scheiße porn! That’s German for shit in case you didn’t know! God damn I love pay-per-view and it’s lack of censorship!
[Dick Devereaux goes to the outside, heading directly for Tweeder whose rolling around in obvious pain but is playing possum as he drop toes holds Devereaux face first into the barricade. Tweeder gets up and starts repeatedly smashing Dick’s face into the barricade, then starts throwing a flurry of rights and lefts all over Devereaux’s head and back. Tweeder then backs up to the apron, waits for Devereaux to turn around, runs and hits Dick with a big boot that leaves him slumped on the ground against the barricade. Tweeder wipes the blood that is still pouring from his nose, then reaches under the ring and pulls out a folded up steel chair]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Tweeder looking to keep up the assault!
[Tweeder raises the chair and comes at Devereaux who delivers a quick uppercut directly to the crotch of Tweeder]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Low blow out of desperation by Dick Devereaux!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - On the bright though; it’s not like there’s much potential for Tweeder to have kids anyways looking like that!
[Devereaux gets to his feet and immediately irish whips Tweeder into the steel ring post. Devereaux picks up the steel chair from the floor that Tweeder dropped earlier and begins smashing it across the back of Tweeder. Devereaux then throws the chair to the ground after the damage has been done and brings Tweeder back to his feet. Devereaux goes to irish whip Tweeder into the barricade but Tweeder reverses and sends Dick back first into the barricade. Tweeder then almost immediately follows up and spears Devereaux through the barricade, spilling the fight out into the crowd]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - It looks like the Battleground can’t contain these two as the fight has now ensued in the crowd!
[As security clears the fans out to create a path, the two wrestlers get to their feet and begin exchanging rights and lefts with Devereaux’s back to the stairs and Tweeder’s back to the ring. Tweeder begins to get the upper hand has he starts throwing two punches to one of Devereaux’s, until Dick is backed up onto the stairs and not throwing any more, just receiving rights and lefts courtesy of Tweeder. Tweeder then grabs Devereaux by the collar and carries him to the top of the steeps as the fans are screaming on both sides of them. Tweeder then throws Devereaux through the curtain, into the concession area as the cameraman follows them]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Never mind the Battleground Dante, it looks like this arena may not be able to contain this brawl!
[Tweeder goes over to a merchandise table, grabs a Dick Devereaux t-shirt and wipes the blood from his broken nose all over it, while blowing out his bloody nose into it as well, then throws the bloody shirt at Dick, following it up with stomps to Dick’s head]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - “The UltraViolent Icon” showing no mercy here with a side of disrespect!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - I’ve said it all along, he’s absolutely classless compared to a class act guy like Dick Devereaux!
[Tweeder picks Devereaux back up but Devereaux throws an elbow to the gut, grabs Tweeder by the head and throws him face first into the popcorn machine that sits on the counter of the concession stand across from the merchandise table as bloody popcorn falls to the ground and all over the body of Tweeder who is now slumped down on the floor beneath the counter. Dick then grabs the chord from one of the debit machines by the cash register and begins choking Tweeder with it]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Absolute ruthlessness shown here by Dick Devereaux!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Looks like both of these competitors will do whatever is necessary to win here tonight Dante!
[After choking Tweeder enough to his liking, Devereaux grabs the debit machine the chord is attached to and smashes it on top of Tweeder’s head as the camera shows his nose was reopened by the popcorn machine, as well as a few shards of glass in his right cheek. Devereaux then backs up and comes running towards Tweeder who is getting to his feet slowly but manages to grab Devereaux in a spear like clutch and then runs across the aisle way and drives Devereaux back first through the glass door entrance way and onto the pavement right outside the arena]
“The Emerald” Drew Stevenson - I said this arena may not be enough to keep this fight contained!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Well Drew, we all have to be right at least once in our lifetime!
[Tweeder picks Dick up and then proceeds to toss him into the concrete barricade that is outside, parallel to the entrance. Tweeder then disappears for a moment back into the arena]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Where is Tweeder going?!?
[A few moments later, Tweeder comes back through the entrance with a beer from the concession stand in one hand and clutch a cash register in the other up against his body]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - What is Tweeder thinking here??
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - He’s a fuckin’ thief! He stole from Union Battleground! The evidence is literally right in his hand! Fire him Axel! Give Dick the title!
[Tweeder quickly chugs the beer, all the while Dick Devereaux is reaching for anything he can as he’s noticed the cash register. Tweeder finishes his beer and brings the cash register to both hands as Devereaux is searching by the garbage can close to him and happens to grab a stray cat that is looking for scraps]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Devereaux has a…cat???
[Tweeder who sees Devereaux holding this cat as a weapon looks just as confused but without hesitation Devereaux throws the loudly meowing cat through the air, like a perfect pass right onto Tweeder’s face, claws first]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - That’s the most pussy Tweeder’s got all year boys! Maybe in his lifetime!
[As Tweeder tries to fight off the cat whose clutching onto his face for dear life, Devereaux is back to his feet and charges at Tweeder, spearing him through the other door that they hadn’t broken, as the cat scurries off once they all hit the ground as the fans start chanting...]
BATTLEGROUND! BATTLEGROUND! BATTLEGROUND! BATTLEGROUND!
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Absolute chaos here in this main event!
[Devereaux then gets up, walks over to the merchandise stand and grabs a Tweeder shirt for himself, he then walks over and proceeds to start choking Tweeder again, now with his own merchandise. After a few moments, Devereaux releases the choke and Tweeeder falls to the ground. Devereaux holds up the shirt, stretches it out and open and then spits directly on it and throws it down at Tweeder]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - Complete and utter disrespect shown by Dick Devereaux!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Oh, but it’s okay for Tweeder to do that kind of crap to Dick’s merch? “Eye for an Eye”!
[Devereaux now picks up Tweeder to his feet, in which Tweeder responds by throwing a quick jab, then another and then tosses Devereaux through the curtain, to the top of the aisle way leading back into the crowd. Tweeder then does the unthinkable and tosses Devereaux down the stairs sending Dick tumbling down the concrete stairs to the area behind the broken barricade from earlier]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Devereaux landing with a sick thud at the bottom of those stairs!
[Tweeder takes his time walking down, eventually getting to Devereaux’s body and picks him up, leading him back to the ringside area. Devereaux is thrown back into the ring by Tweeder, who then follows him in after grabbing the steel chair that was used earlier in the match]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - “The Ultra Violent Icon” obviously seems to be wanting to live up to that moniker with that steel chair in hand!
[Tweeder waits for Devereaux to get to his feet…”CRAAAAAACK”! Tweeder nails Devereaux in the head with the chair that splits open his forehead and sends him back down to the mat with the blood pouring from his head and covering his face]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Devereaux now sporting the ‘Crimson Mask’!
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - These guys are absolutely out of their fuckin’ minds Dante!
[Tweeder then rests the steel chair across the abdomen of Dick Devereaux and heads to the turnbuckle then proceeds to climb it, slowly but surely]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - What is Tweeder looking for here? Taking it high risk!
[Tweeder gets to the top, looks in both directions at the crowd, turns around and then flies off of the top turnbuckle with a moonsault, landing on the chair that lays across Devereaux’s stomach]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - What a moonsault by Tweeder!
[Tweeder’s body came off of Devereaux’s due to the impact, but he slowly crawls over for the cover]
[Dick gets his shoulder up barely]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Kick out by Dick Devereaux!
[Tweeder gets back to his feet, bringing Devereaux along with him but Dick uses an eye gouge to catch Tweeder off guard, and then follows up quickly with a Samoan drop. Seeing the opening, Devereaux hits the ropes and nails a massive Hand Grenade on Tweeder, leans back and covers somewhat casually]
[Tweeder kicks out]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Somehow! Someway! Tweeder kicked out!
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - Devereaux should have hooked the leg in a full body cover there!
[Devereaux gets up to his feet and signals to the crowd that this is it]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - Devereaux signaling the end could be near here!
[Devereaux lifts Tweeder up in the fireman’s carry position, then flips Tweeder over into position for the Pipebomb]
"Diamond" Dick Thrasher - YES DICK! DO IT!
[Devereaux has a smirk on his face when suddenly, Tweeder begins flailing his legs and manages to wrap his arm around Dick’s throat, while using his weight to force Dick back while Tweeder is now on his feet and then hits Dick Devereaux with the biggest Ruck Over of his career]
"The Emerald" Drew Stevenson - RUCK OVER!
[Tweeder follows up with the pin]
[Tweeder rolls over exhausted and worn out as all of the fans rise out of their feetas the final bell rings]
"The Doctor" Dante Reed - TWEEDER’S DONE IT! He’s the new Union Battleground Champion!
Mike "Drop" Dempsey – Here is your winner…AND NEW UNION BATTLEGROUND CHAMPION…TWEEDER!
