Welcome to WLCW Eruption on YouTube, I am Renee Young alongside Marcus Alexander Bagwell and we are now officially out of the road to Ascension and on our way to, well...the Grand Canyon!BUFF BAGWELL:
First things first, Renee, we got a couple of shows between now and then. But man alive, was Ascension not the greatest show that we've ever seen!?RENEE YOUNG:
Marcus, I was there first hand and - -BUFF BAGWELL:
- Yeah, we know. You were invited to be on commentary. You know they wouldn't even let me in the backstage area? RENEE YOUNG:
Wait, really?BUFF BAGWELL:
Yeah, they were like 'Hey, you can't come in here without pants!' or something. I don't really remember.RENEE YOUNG:
Well, regardless if you being there or not, it was an incredible show from top to bottom. We saw new champions crowned all night from Maxwell Jacob Friedman to the Wingmen - -BUFF BAGWELL:
I love those guys!RENEE YOUNG:
- to Momo Watanabe and then in the main event, we saw Cody Rhodes climb the ladder and bring home the WLCW World Heavyweight Championship in an all time classic.BUFF BAGWELL:
What about my boy Booker T's Suckate Tournament that's going to take place right here on Eruption!?RENEE YOUNG:
Well, I don't know about all that...BUFF BAGWELL:
My guy Booker does all the craziest stuff. He's an actual samurai, did you know that? Big ol' swords and WAHHHH!RENEE YOUNG:
I'm not sure I can do this after working with Mauro and Pat.BUFF BAGWELL:
Please, those guys are way less fun than I am...RENEE YOUNG:
That is true.BUFF BAGWELL:
Let's get down to the ring for our first match of the night!
the prince just became a king and I march on everybody.

Craven Knyte is already in the ring, bouncing back and forth, getting ready for his match here on Eruption. Before things can really get started, "Kingdom" hits throughout the arena and the fans are on their feet. Before they get too excited, Stephen Amell walks through the curtain and stands at the top of the ramp with Preston Vance showing up along side him. He has a microphone in hand.STEPHEN AMELL: Hold on one second.RENEE YOUNG: What's this guy doing here?BUFF BAGWELL: I thought we were going to see the new WLCW World Champion but what a surprise, it's Stephen Amell, from television!Amell and Vance begin walking down the ramp.STEPHEN AMELL: Hey kid, are you proud of yourself? Are you?They enter the ring and Amell steps in Knyte's face. Knyte, knowing the deck is stacked against him, does not show any fear.STEPHEN AMELL: You tried costing Cody Rhodes the World Championship! You threw me, television's STEPHEN AMELL, through a ladder, dude! I wasn't even supposed to be there! I was innocent! Is that how you treat people that you thought were DEAD? Huh, pal? You some sort of grave-robbing, corpse abuser or something?BUFF BAGWELL: You don't come back from being a corpse abuser.RENEE YOUNG: I'm so confused right now. Why is Stephen Amell here, first off? Secondly, why is he accusing Craven Knyte of being a grave robber when Stephen Amell is, and go with me here, ALIVE AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN ALIVE!Amell shoves his index finger into Knyte's chest.
STEPHEN AMELL: Now, I know the routine around here since the beginning. You and Cody have had this blood feud that you started all those weeks ago.. but guess what, pal? You're never going to beat Cody! He's the WORLD CHAMPION! He's also not here tonight, so you won't have to worry about him wrecking your dome for what you did at Ascension.Amell removes his shirt and throws it in Knyte's face.
STEPHEN AMELL: Instead, you're gonna' have to worry about ME!Amell kicks Knyte in the gut and hits a sloppy clothesline.
STEPHEN AMELL: TELEVISION'S STEPHEN AMELL!Still with the microphone in hand, Amell drops the most awkward elbow drop you've ever seen. He pops back up and motions for Aubrey Edwards to call for the bell.
RENEE YOUNG: Wait, is this going to be a match?BUFF BAGWELL: Eruption is getting some serious star power! I saw this guy crush it on New Girl.RENEE YOUNG: Out of all of the bits he's played, you chose a two-episode arch of New Girl?
(TELEVISION'S)STEPHEN AMELL VS CRAVEN KNYTEThe bell sounds and Amell picks Knyte up quickly and hoists him in the air for a Suplex.. That he botches, accidentally dropping Craven Knyte on his head. Craven Knyte is immediately motionless on the mat and Aubrey throws up the "X."BUFF BAGWELL: Well, Renee.. As someone who broke his neck in that ring, Craven Knyte is most likely going to die.RENEE YOUNG: ..I.. I don't think that's accurate. This is a very serious situation, Marcus. This is why untrained people like Stephen Amell should NOT be allowed inside a ring!BUFF BAGWELL: Hey! Stephen Amell has had three matches in his career, one of which was within the last four years, which apparently matters in most places!Preston Vance enters the ring and looks on in despair at Craven Knyte, who is being checked on by ringside physicians. Amell forces Aubrey Edwards to raise his hand in the air, declaring him the winner by default.
(TELEVISION'S)STEPHEN AMELLStill with microphone in hand, Stephen Amell looks down at Craven Knyte as he's FINALLY come to and is being helped up to his feet.
Referee Stoppage - :20
STEPHEN AMELL: The World Champion sends his regards!He thinks better of it.
STEPHEN AMELL: Also, regards from television's Stephen Amell! Next time you cross us, next time you want a piece of the action, buddy, I'll show you how a real man body slams someone through the god damn mat!Amell spikes the microphone on the mat and celebrates with Preston Vance. The fans are in absolute shock and are deathly silent from what just transpired.

Now just stay with me here, what if we get Stephen Amell and Chistian Bale in a tag team! Just think about it for a second -
RENEE YOUNG: No time for that, I'm confused enough as it is, partner. Besides, it looks like we have some action coming!
Skyler Moore is already in the ring, and we briefly see her pacing before the camera cuts to the entrance stage. There, Sayuri Namba stands with a mic in hand as the dramatic music of Nouvelle Bishikigun sounds through the arena. Boos rain down as Misao emerges through the curtains, dressed in a black jacket with golden epaulets and red sash, black pants and boots. It's clear she doesn't intend to fight but her ring announcer starts announcing her anyway.
SAYURI NAMBA: <In the red rose corner, representing Nouvelle Bishikigun: the Rose Queen, MIISAAAAAOOOO!>
MISAO VS SKYLER MOORE
The fans boo even more, but Misao no sells their hate. She gracefully moves over to Sayuri and motions for the mic, which is promptly handed to her. With an icy glare she stares at the woman in the ring as if she were an ant about to be crushed underfoot.
MISAO: No. A pathetic fool like you doesn't deserve to be in the ring with the Rose Queen. You don't get the privilege of being beaten by me. But I do have an opponent for you, peasant. My Butler will happily entertain you.\
Her music fades out and Ride of the Valkyries suddenly replaces it. Out from backstage comes Konami in full ring gear and a bemused smile on her face. As she makes her way to the ring Misao follows gracefully, expression unoving from its disdain for the Skyler Moores of the world.SAYURI NAMBA:
<My apologies, in the red rose corner, representing Nouvelle Bishikigun: the Loyal Butler and Submission Sniper, KONAAAAAAAAMIIIIII!>
CORRECTION: KONAMI VS SKYLER MOORERENEE YOUNG:
Just like that, Misao tags in her butler to do the fighting for her!BUFF BAGWELL:
I wonder if these prissy chicks are gonna be in the SUCKATE tournament!
Skyler hesitantly meets Konami in the center of the ring and exchanges a few choice words before slapping Konami across the face! Konami's face whips to the side, but then she looks back to Skyler with a malevolent grin on her face. She suddenly hammers away at Skyler with a series of vicious chops to the chest, then kicks her arm hard enough to elicit a groan of sympathy from the crowd. Konami grabs the arm, forcefully jerks it into place and throws Skyler to the mat with a hammerlock bodyslam! Skyler howls in pain and struggles to her knees, where she's cut down with a BUZZSAW KICK! As she lays prone on the mat, Konami laughs evilly and seize Skyler's arm by the wrist, pulling violently on it. After getting another howl of pain Konami locks in the FINAL LANCER! With nowhere to go, Skyler taps in seconds.
Submission - 0:30
<Here is your winner: KONAAAAAMIIIIIII!>BUFF BAGWELL:
Wait, did I miss something? I was just checking in with my samurai friend Booker T.RENEE YOUNG:
Konami wastes no time in disposing of Skyler Moore here on Eruption - she looks more than ready to make her WLCW TV debut against Dr. Britt Baker, DMD on Vengeance.Konami makes a flourishing bow as the fans boo, seeming to feast on their distaste for her. Misao has entered the ring as well and nods to Konami before glancing over to see Skyler struggling to her feet. With a roll of the eyes, Misao rushes her and kicks her stiffly in the ribs. With Skyler back to her knees, Misao runs the ropes and plants her into the mat with SHATTERED VISAGE. The ring bell rings frantically as Konami rushes over and shoves Skyler out of the ring like a bag of trash. Nouvelle Bishikigun's theme plays as both women leave the ring, clearly pleased with their work.

Following the previous match, the camera cuts to the announce team’s desk in a flat shot. Both announcers still visually pumped from the action seen so far as well as the promised Booker T Suckate Tournament that will be occurring in the future.
RENEE YOUNG: So far this is setting up to be another excellent episode of Eruption, Marcus!
BUFF BAGWELL: Yeah, we got to see THE Kyle from NEW GIRL! Are you kidding me?! We’re getting all kinds of star power and that was just our OPENER!
Renee sighs as she again tries to verbally connect why Bagwell would recognize Stephen Amell, the leading actor of hit television show Arrow, to being in his greatest role as a guest star of New Girl.
RENEE YOUNG: Marcus, I can’t even begin to see how that is the show you recognize him from -
BUFF BAGWELL: No time for that Renee! This show has time limits even for YouTube and I just don’t think you’d understand the high level of appeal New Girl has on a modern audience.
Buff has an arrogant smirk on his face as if he just proposed a masterpiece of logic to Renee. Of course, as probably has happened a few times while the Commentators are off screen, Renee can only face palm at the statement.
RENEE YOUNG: Let’s just move on to the next match, please…
Renee speaks in a deflated tone but does have an unbelieving smile on her face. Nonetheless, her desire to move on is cut off by a very jubilant Bagwell.
BUFF BAGWELL: WELL! Before that we can, we also must mention the prissy chicks who just beat the DAYLIGHTS out of Skyler Moore!
RENEE YOUNG: How would you know that, Marcus?! You were trying to get in contact with Booker T the ENTIRE MATCH!
BUFF BAGWELL: Oh, I have a seventh sense when it comes to things in between the ropes, Renee! Plus, Booker T IS a Samurai! It would be rude to not consult him during any match involving BUZZSAW KICKS. Samurais use buzzsaws, right?
RENEE YOUNG: Only in Astro Boy they do. Nonetheless, yeah, it was a fantastic match! Konami looks to be in great condition heading into her match against Dr. Britt Baker –
Both announcers proceed with the next line of “D.M.D.” in chant.
BUFF BAGWELL: Seriously though, what is Astro Boy?
Before the announcers can continue, on the Tron, two small hands grab the side of the black frame in shot. The two announcers continue speaking not noticing, as very few fans live in attendance realize it. From shot, a bisque doll sticks its head out from the right side of the darkness into frame and looks out into the crowd. The doll has a very neutral smile on its face as it looks to be checking to see if anyone notices it. The live audience immediately react with pointing and some laughter as well as some gasps at the appearance of the unusual doll. The announcers now go silent as the camera switches to a wide shot to allow the audience to be in frame. On the Tron, the bisque doll, with the same neutral expression raises one of its fingers to its mouth indicating a shush before moving off screen entirely. The crowd is bewildered by the entire event as the announcers begin to speak again.
BUFF BAGWELL: Now, what the HELL was that?!
Bagwell’s tone, for once, is serious as he seems genuinely out of the loop here. Renee also sounding puzzled responds.
RENEE YOUNG: I have no idea, Marcus. That was just strange –
Before Renee can continue, however, the feet of the bisque doll now enter the black Tron. Before anyone can react, the Doll dances into frame with the Tequila Dance! Wearing a small crown on its head and wearing a multi-torn robe around its body, the doll stops and investigates the middle of the frame still with the neutral smile on its face. The doll waves to what appears to be the live audience in a very eager manner. The camera cuts to ringside where a few kids sit and see them cautiously waving back to the doll. There’s a pause as the doll looks out to the audience again before it shrugs and continues Tequila Dancing towards the left side of the Tron. Stopping right at the edge of the frame, the doll dances backwards towards the right side of frame. Before exiting the frame, the doll freezes with an “H” pose briefly before exiting the shot entirely.
RENEE YOUNG: We have had a lot of bizarre things here in WLCW; however, I think that may be one of the strangest.
BUFF BAGWELL: Is there a point to it? I think someone needs to have a stern talking to with our graphics crew! They are all great guys and gals, but they seem to be getting a little bit tipsy behind the wheel. No more dancing dolls please! They’re creepy and weird.
The camera cuts to ringside as we prepare for our following contest.

So before we get to the next match... normally something like this would be reserved for Vengeance, but it was specifically requested that I be the interviewer. What you’re about to see is a special interview with Drake Maverick, business manager for Miss Jamie Hayter. BUFF BAGWELL:
WHAT?! He didn’t ask for Buff Daddy?! Is this because Booker T cashed out his half of the shampoo commercial?! I protest! Guilt by association for WCW legends!RENEE YOUNG:
…anyways, the following is the interview…The scene is a hotel room at undisclosed location. Seated before a large, burning fireplace are Renee Young and Drake Maverick.
Drake is healed!
Or at least he’s not in the Shoprider Streamer Sport apparently and dressed casually in a black leather jacket “Maverick 24:7” t-shirt, faded blue jeans and sneakers. He looks a bit disheveled, as if he hasn’t shaved in days.RENEE YOUNG:
Drake, first I want to thank you for the ability to interview you. I’m told you and Jamie Hayter requested Vengeance off. But before we begin, I see you’re not in the… best state. Are you sure you’re up for it?Drake’s eyes are puffy and red, like he’s been crying. But there’s a difference from his usual ‘fragile crybaby’ bawling. There’s something else there… rage.
Just bloody get on wit’ it Renee.RENEE YOUNG:
…right. Well, Drake, can you tell us how your client, Miss Jamie Hayter is doing after the events at Ascension?
Drake clenches his hand as he looks at Renee like she said something idiotic and insulting, his jaw clenched tight as he tries to control the furious tremor in his voice.DRAKE MAVERICK:
How does she feel? How do ye think she feels Renee? Miss Jamie has busted ‘er arse off the past month, endured literal hell, and might I remind you, was the ONLY woman not pinned in that bloody match and what does she get? Salt in ‘er eye and screwed by a woman who couldn’ get the job done ‘er self!RENEE YOUNG:
Well since you’ve addressed it. What of the shocking revelation that Starlight Kid was the mystery driver?Drake looks even more furious as he shakes and has to take a deep breath to calm himself.DRAKE MAVERICK:
She’s lucky she’s a female... I won't call a sod off tart like that a 'lady'... and that vehicular manslaughter is a crime in a civilized country. Otherwise I’d be motivated to return the favor! But this ain’ ‘bout me. This is ‘bout Miss Jamie. Do you know how that feels Renee? To work. To grind. To sculpt one’s body into that of a Muscular Venus, and she isn’t beaten in a fair and just combat. She was beaten by a COWARD!
Drake turns, looking the camera full of fury.DRAKE MAVERICK:
That’s right Momo Watanabe. You are a COWARD! A bloody tart of a c[bleep!] who couldn’ get the job done ‘erself so ya had ta have an old fossil and a schoolgirl in a lucha mask ‘elp you. I’m sure you’ll sit there, like a cheap knock off goth girl and roll your eyes, but remember, YOU shame your people. YOU prove all the insults that a Japanese wrestler can’t make it for real in the West.
Renee gasps.RENEE YOUNG:
Drake. Do you want to perhaps clarify those comments? Considering the recent accusations of Sonny Onoo about the..DRAKE MAVERICK:
… Hashtag Stop Asian Hate? Don’t make me laugh. Renee, you know me. There’s not a bloody racist bone in me body but let’s call a spade a spade. The Japanese are some of the most racist, xenophobic people on this Earth! That’s exactly WHY Miss Jamie came to the States. To escape bein’ held down as some ‘gaijin comedy act’ for their entertainment. Drake leans in, shaking as he tries to control himself.DRAKE MAVERICK:
Did Jamie Hayter ever get a legitimate chance at the fabled “Red Belt” of Stardom? Did she ever get a chance to do anything more than cheap wet willies and middle finger sophomore antics? She was a second-class citizen in Japan, and now when she comes here for her fair shake, she gets cheated of it and some schemin’ sack of dog s[bleep!] wants to claim they’re the ones bein’ prejudiced?! Drake sits back and shakes his head.
Don’t make me laugh.RENEE YOUNG:
Alright. Well… what’s next for Jamie Hayter?Drake half-chuckles and laughs.
What’s next? I don’t know me’self Renee. I can’t even reach me own bloody client! But I will say this! For all our disagreements and antics? Jamie Hayter is no coward like Momo Watanabe. And I can scheme just as well as any walking fossil like Sonny Onoo. The bastards want a war? They got one.
Drake looks at the camera.
Pay real close attention, make sure you translate this to perfect Japanese for them to read.
Drake pauses as if waiting, then continues.
DRAKE MAVERICK: Alright Onoo, you called down the thunder, well now you got it!
Drake rises out of the chair, clenching his fist as the camera zooms in.
DRAKE MAVERICK: You tell ‘em I’m comin’, and hell’s comin' with me, you hear?The camera pans out as Bea Priestley walks into the view, holding a familiar Queen’s Quest mask which she summarily throws into the fire which lights up brighter as it consumes the material.
HELL’S BLOODY COMIN' WITH ME!!!
Drake storms off, with Bea smirking at the camera and giving a middle finger before sauntering off, leaving Renee stunned.
Eventually the camera transitions and we’re back to Renee and Buff on Eruption, the latter whose jaw is dropped.
Drake… Maverick… actually being serious? And did he just quote Tombstone?! ICE COLD! I’M YA HUCKLEBERRY DRAKE!!!
"I believe the common denominator of the universe is not harmony, but chaos, hostility, and murder."

ROK-C VS MIRANDA GORDY
Booker T is not at ringside for the match, presumably off preparing for the first round of the SUCKATE TOURNAMENT. Rok-C looks ready for a fight, but as soon as the bell rings, Miranda Gordy rushes her and pins her against the turnbuckles. Gordy uses her size advantage to overwhelm Rok-C, pummeling her with forearms and knee lifts before yanking her out of the corner and planting her with a stiff snap suplex! Gordy immediately goes for a cover but Rok-C kicks out at two!RENEE YOUNG:
Miranda Gordy is really coming in hot, not giving Rok-C a second to breathe between attacks! You can tell she's got something to prove!BUFF BAGWELL:
Yeah, Rok-C's been doin' pretty well for herself with Booker T in her corner... but now that he's preoccupied with that tournament of his, how far can she get without him? Can she take Miranda Gordy on her own? And will a loss here affect her chances against Ronda Rousey on Vengeance?!
Miranda Gordy pulls Rok-C up to her knees and Rok-C begins fighting back, nailing Gordy in the mid-section with forearms! Rok-C rises and begins sending those forearms to Gordy's jaw! Rok-C backs Gordy into the ropes and prepares to shoot her off but Gordy reverses it! Rok-C comes running back and throws herself into position for a WHEELBARROW BULLDOG! Rok-C rolls back to her feet, all fired up! Gordy gets up to all fours and Rok-C comes in with a basement dropkick! Gordy rolls to the floor, thinking about what to do next. But before she can get it together, Rok-C flies through the ropes and wipes her out with a SUICIDE DIVE! Rok-C grabs Gordy by the hair and throws her under the bottom rope. Rok-C climbs onto the apron and ascends the turnbuckles. She waits on Gordy to get into a standing position and flies... MISSILE DROPKICK!RENEE YOUNG:
WOW WOW WOW! Now that she's in control, Rok-C is holding nothing back! Miranda Gordy has got to be wondering what she can do to get back in the driver's seat!BUFF BAGWELL:
I'm really impressed with what I'm seein' here, Renee. It's almost like she knows exactly what to do without Booker T telling her!RENEE YOUNG:
Gee, ya' think?
Rok-C rolls back to her feet and waits in the corner, gesturing for Gordy to get up and bring it. Gordy slowly returns to her feet and Rok-C charges at her! Gordy throws a clothesline but Rok-C ducks it and hits the ropes, rebounding and hitting Gordy with a flying headscissors... INTO A CROSSFACE SUBMISSION! Rok-C yanks back on it and Miranda Gordy taps out!
ROK-CRok-C releases the hold and remains seated next to Gordy as she favors her neck. Rok-C huffs and blows the hair out of the face before standing up and allowing the referee to raise her arm in victory. She glares at Gordy the entire time before pulling her wrist free and going about her celebration.RENEE YOUNG:
Submission - 4:01
A submission win for Rok-C! That's uncharacteristic of what we've seen from her thus far in WLCW. I wonder if that's a message for Ronda Rousey? A little "anything you can do, I can do better." What do ya' think, Buff?BUFF BAGWELL:
I think that's a fine game to play with Miranda Gordy, but if she thinks that's gonna fly with Rowdy Ronda, I don't know what to tell ya'. She showed off a pretty good mean streak tonight but let's not pretend like Ronda Rousey and Miranda Gordy are even remotely in the same league. And that's not a knock on Gordy's talent at all. It's just kind of like comparing delicious vanilla ice cream with ice cream that's really old and sour. Just bad tasting ice cream that no one would ever eat, because it's disgusting. One of those is better than the other, am I right?RENEE YOUNG:
What... what is wrong with you? Don't answer that. We've got more action coming up, as well as the first round of Booker T's SUCKATE TOURNAMENT, so let's get to it!Fade.

We return to action after a short clip promoting Clash at the Canyon..GRIFF GARRISON VS ROLANDO PEREZ
The ref calls for the bell as the two participants meet in the middle of the ring. Griff towers over Rolando, with a seven inch height difference.RENEE YOUNG:
We've got one third of the Varsity Blondes in action. Looking to pick up a victory against Rolando Perez. BUFF BAGWELL:
Griff has some bad mojo going right now, Renee. Anything can happen.
The two of them tie up and jockey for position, with Griff gaining the upper hand and whipping Rolando into the ropes. After a connected drop kick, Griff helps Rolando back to his feet only to unleash a barrage of knife edge chops to the chest of Rolando. The crowd lets out emphatic Ric Flair 'WHOOOOOO!' following each one. After half a dozen of them, Griff gets behind Rolando and locks in a sleeper hold!!!RENEE YOUNG:
Griff with the early advantage here.BUFF BAGWELL:
He's trying to choke him out! Look, his face is turning purple!
Just as he starts to really cinch in the hold, Perez is able to counter and squirm between Griff's legs. He hops up and runs towards the ropes, bouncing off and coming back at Griff with a full head of steam. Griff leapfrogs him and runs towards the opposite ropes. The two of them meet in the middle of the ring, but Griff is on the losing end as Rolando nails a spinning leg kick to the chest. RENEE YOUNG:
Down goes Griff! BUFF BAGWELL:
Short guys are dangerous, Renee. Just when it looked like he was getting choked out.
Rolando bounces off the ropes again and jumps over Griff, who is on both knees trying to pull himself to his feet. On the rebound, Rolando drops down and connects with a double kick to the ribcage of Griff. Julia continues to cheer on Griff from the outside, but up to this point it's not working. Rolando scurries to the top rope and waits for Griff to get up. Once he does, Rolando flies through air!!!! Face plant onto the mat!!RENEE YOUNG:
Nobody home! Griff was playing opossum.BUFF BAGWELL:
How's the mat taste?
Griff tries to take advantage of the situation, pulling Rolando to his feet in the center of the ring. Griff bounces off the ropes..... SPEAR!!!! He connects with a vicious spear, sending Rolando down to the mat. Griff drops down and hooks both legs! ONE! TWO! TH---WHAT!?!?RENEE YOUNG:
He broke the pin before the three count.
Out from the back walks Brian Pillman Jr.BUFF BAGWELL:
Look who finally decided to show up!RENEE YOUNG:
What!? Brian Pillman is here!
Griff climbs to his feet and brushes his hair out of his face as he stares up at the top of the ramp. Julia walks around the outside of the ring and flings her arms up in the air in the direction of Brian. He's standing frozen at the top of the ramp, with an almost half smirk on his face.RENEE YOUNG:
What is he doing?BUFF BAGWELL:
Who knows, he might be wasted.
Julia starts to walk up the ramp, but Griff tries to convince her otherwise. Meanwhile, his opponent has decided that this might be the opportune time to swoop in......
SCHOOL BOY ROLLUP!
ONE! TWO! THREEEEEE!!!!!
ROLANDO PEREZPinfall - 5:11
RENEE YOUNG: Are you kidding me!?
BUFF BAGWELL: Told ya' this kid has some bad mojo.
RENEE YOUNG: That was Brian's fault. He just cost his tag team partner another match.
Before Griff can even climb to his feet, Brian is gone from the top of the ramp.. Julia rolls into the ring to console her friend as both of them are in complete shock of what just transpired.

After taking a moment to digest the upset of Griff Garrison, a brief ad break on YouTube appears. After skipping through, you're taken back to the shot of the ringside area when the light suddenly dim and begin to flash bright green. While the intro of Bring Me The Horizon's "Can You Feel My Heart" plays over the sound system, the crowd directs their attention to the entrance way. Out steps Atticus Cogar, making his first appearance in World League Championship Wrestling. Wearing a flannel button down shirt and torn up jeans, Atticus stood at the top of the ramp, looking out at the crowd before him.
For those unfamiliar with the ultraviolent circuits of the United States, this is Atticus Cogar! BUFF BAGWELL:
Now, what in the heck do you know about ultra-violent deathmatches?RENEE YOUNG:
You'd be surprised! But, even if you're not a fan of ultraviolence, Atticus is a vicious athlete who takes joy in breaking the spirits of those who step into the ring with him. He's ruthless, he's aggressive, and he's fearless. BUFF BAGWELL:
He sounds like he might fit in just fine here, daddy!Cogar walks down the ramp, with a look of disdain on his face. He whips his stringy blonde hair backwards, and raises his fists in the air, showing off the words "PURE HATE" tattooed on his knuckles. Cogar slides into the ring, as Roberts introduces him.JUSTIN ROBERTS:
The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Entering the ring, weighing in at 164 pounds, from Cleveland, Ohio - ATTICUS COGAR!
.. And his opponent, from Council Bluffs, Iowa - Jaysin Strife! The camera focuses on Jaysin Strife, who was already in the ring who gives a quick wave to the camera, before turning his attention back to his opponent here tonight. Atticus removes his flannel shirt and tosses it on the ground, revealing his set of white suspenders underneath and his new t-shirt underneath. The two men stare each other down as the bell rings, and the match begins!
ATTICUS COGAR VS JAYSIN STRIFE
As soon as the bell rings, Atticus Cogar comes out swinging and catches Strife off guard. Clearly, Strife was expecting to lock up, but instead he was attacked by a barrage of hockey punches from Cogar. After a series of rights and lefts connect, Atticus backs Jaysin into the corner and quickly delivers a knee right into the gut. From there, he pushes Strife back and gives him chop across the chest. Jaysin reacts and grabs Atticus by the head, switches their position and puts Atticus in the corner instead. Strife gave Atticus a huge overhand chop across the chest. Quickly, Atticus delivers a thumb to Strife's eye, garnering a warning from the referee as Strife stumbled away.RENEE YOUNG:
And at the first sense of danger, Atticus resorts to underhanded tactics. It's like second nature to him.BUFF BAGWELL:
He's a smart guy, I like it!
Just then, Atticus fired in with a shotgun dropkick to Jaysin's chest, sending Strife stumbling back into the other corner. Atticus rose to his feet and swiftly delivered another stiff shotgun dropkick, but this time it connects right across Strife's face! Atticus pulls him out of the corner and hoists him up in a suplex position. He delivers a vicious snap brainbuster! Strife is out cold, but that's not enough for Cogar who wants to send a message in his first night in WLCW. Cogar picks him up and delivers a snug knee right across the neck of an already defeated Jaysin Strife. The referee is practically begging Atticus to pin Strife. Cogar snatches Strife by the neck and stares directly into the hard cam. He mouths "Fuck Everything
" and delivers a devastating Headlock Driver, spiking Strife's head directly on the canvas! RENEE YOUNG:
He calls that "THE CULMINATION
Atticus Cogar turns Strife over and hooks the leg, as the referee counts the pinfall. The bell rings, and this one is over. Cogar is empathetically victorious. He sits back, as the referee tends to Jaysin on the canvas.
ATTICUS COGARBUFF BAGWELL:
Pinfall - 3:11
Man, that was nasty! RENEE YOUNG:
Like I said, that's what you can come to expect from this young man. That, and a whole lot of bitterness. Which is exactly
what this company needs.Atticus stands up throws his arms out to the side, smiling deviously. He reaches into his back pocket and pulls out a small set of green SKEWERS?! The crowd goes insane as Atticus holds the skewers high in the air, as he now threatens to impale them into the skull of Jaysin Strife.BUFF BAGWELL:
What's he doin' with those?! Makin' some barbecue? RENEE YOUNG:
No! Someone stop this! This is disgusting! Strife is slowly back up to his knees as Atticus stalks him, skewers in hand and ready to inflict a world of pain on this young man. Just then, a barrage of referees and road agents hit the ring to subdue Atticus, and the bundle of skewers goes flying everywhere. Part of the crowd boos, as their bloodlust will not be sated just yet. Atticus is pushed out of the ring and to the back as the cameras cut away to another segment on Eruption.

The moment WLCW Eruption fans have been waiting for.
We fade up on a shot of the ring. Darkness has consumed the audience and there’s only a single spotlight shining down on the ring itself. Standing in the center of the spotlight, we see Booker T by himself in a white karate gi with his hard earned black belt wrapped tightly around his waist. Somewhere, deep in the heart of the arena, we hear a lone fan shout “NO ONE WANTS TO SEE THIS NINJA KICK BULLSHIT!” which draws a larger reaction from the fans around him. Booker T stares straight ahead, no selling the heckler.RENEE YOUNG:
Well, Buff, here we are. It’s time for the first round of the Suckate Tournament! What exactly that entails, we don’t know. How many men are competing in the tournament? We don’t know! Is there even a prize at the end for whoever wins?BUFF BAGWELL:
We don’t know! And that’s what makes all of this so exciting. Ya’ know, me ‘n Booker T might not always see eye to eye but this is the kind of exciting and unpredictable stuff we used to do back in the Attitude Era, back when wrestling was good!RENEE YOUNG:
I mean… I think wrestling is better now than it’s ever been. Just look at the amazing talent roster here in World League Championship Wrestling. How many guys from eras past could stand toe to toe with men like Brock Lesnar or Eddie Kingston or… or Miro!BUFF BAGWELL:
Well, why don’t we just put Brock Lesnar in the ring with the Honky Tonk Man and find out, Renee? You want new school versus old school? I bet you’ll look real smart when we see how that one turns out!RENEE YOUNG:
I… uh… I probably will?BUFF BAGWELL:
Sure, Renee.From somewhere in the darkness, we hear the voice of Justin Roberts.JUSTIN ROBERTS:
Ladies and gentlemen, it is now time for the first round of Sensei Booker T’s… SUCKATE TOURNAMENNNNNNNNNT! The rules… are as follows. Two men will enter the danger zone. Once both men are inside the danger zone, they will bow to Sensei Booker T. Once they have bowed to Sensei Booker T and shown him the proper respect that he deserves as the five time, five time, five time, five time, FIIIIIIIVE TIIIIIIIIME WCW WORRRRRRRRLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONNNNNNNNNN… they will bow to one another and COMBAT… WILL ENSUE!The fans cheer loudly. Justin Roberts continues.JUSTIN ROBERTS:
Once combat is underway, there are no holds barred and the only way to win is by KNOCKOUT, DEATH… OR BY FORCING YOUR OPPONENT TO SAY THE NAY-NO!! If the encounter reaches its time limit before a winner is decided, Sensei Booker T will make the final judgment on who will advance.A spotlight appears on a large man seated at ringside with his own table. There are many large bottles and drinks on the table in front of him, including a large plastic boot to drink from. The fans begin to cheer loudly as Justin Roberts brings attention to this man.
The time limit will be decided by Sensei Booker T’s special guest timekeeper… BADLANDS CHUGS! If there is no winner decided by the time Badlands Chugs finishes drinking a full boot of ANACONDA MALT LIQUOR, both competitors will receive the sensei’s judgment!The spotlight spreads to either side of the ring, revealing Kit Sackett and Gus De La Vega in opposite corners. Booker T motions for them to meet in the center of the ring. They both look really unsure about taking part in this.JUSTIN ROBERTS:
Kit Sackett and Gus De La Vega, if you agree to these terms, please say… ahem… WA DA TAH!Both men nod and say “wa da tah” before turning to bow to Booker T, then to each other. There’s light applause from the fans as they both turn and return to their corners. Booker T stands in the center of the ring and yells “FIGHT, DILLIES!” The bell rings and Badlands Chugs turns up his boot to begin drinking!
KIT SACKETT VS GUS DE LA VEGA
Gus and Kit meet in the center of the ring. Unsure at first, Gus tees off and kicks Kit in the thigh! Kit rubs his thigh and lunges forward to grab onto Gus, but as soon as he gets his hands on him, the bell rings!RENEE YOUNG:
Hey, what happened? They just got started!BUFF BAGWELL:
OH MAN! OH MAN, CHECK IT OUT!
The camera pans over to reveal that Badlands Chugs has already finished the boot of liquor!RENEE YOUNG:
Dude, that’s just gross.BUFF BAGWELL:
LOOK! HE DID IT IN 19 SECONDS! THAT'S INCREDIBLE!
Gus and Kit just look at each other, disappointed.
NO CONTESTNo one really seems to know what to do. Booker T looks from one man to the other, then shakes his head in disgust. Finally, we hear the voice of Justin Roberts from somewhere in the darkness one again.JUSTIN ROBERTS:
Time Limit Draw - 00:19
Ladies and gentlemen, this match has been declared a TIME LIMIT DRAWWWWWWWWW! Which means… both Kit Sackett and Gus De La Vega will now be subject to… THE SENSEI’S JUDGMENNNNNNNNNT!Booker T grabs a microphone and walks to the center of the ring.BOOKER T:
Both o’ ya’ll suckas get ova’ here!Kit and Gus both walk to the center of the ring with their heads down. Booker T eyeballs both of them angrily, sweat dripping off his nose. He looks from Gus to Kit and back again before finally speaking again.BOOKER T:
What’chall think this is, huh!? Some kinda’ joke!? This tournament is sacred! The Suckate Tournament go all da’ way back t’ my ancestors, ya’ dig!? I can’t be havin’ no punk ass little scrubs out ‘ere makin’ my ancestors ‘n the samurai masters who trained my ass look bad! AW NAW! HELL NAW! SO LISTEN UP, ‘CAUSE HERE COME THE SENSEI’S JUDGMENT!The crowd is electric. Booker T stands in silence before throwing his head back with wild eyes, slinging his hair in every direction!BOOKER T:
KI-YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!He immediately karate chops Kip Sackett in the throat! He goes down to both knees, gasping for air! Gus De La Vega throws a right hand but Booker T blocks it effortlessly and drops to one knee before uppercutting Gus right in the testicles! The fans erupt! Booker falls flat on his back and SPINAROONIES BACK TO HIS FEET TO A MASSIVE POP! Kit Sackett is unable to respond before Booker T comes in hot and DRILLS HIM WITH AN AXE KICK TO STRAIGHT TO THE TOP OF THE HEAD! HE GOES DOWN IN A HEAP! Booker T stands over both men, breathing heavily! But he’s not finished! He pulls Gus De La Vega back to his feet and hooks him… BOOK END ONTO KIT SACKETT’S UNCONSCIOUS BODY! Booker T stands up and removes the top of his karate gi, now standing only in the white pants and black belt. He picks up the microphone from the mat.BOOKER T:
Ya’ll asses done been judged as hell, ‘n that means the winner o’ this fight ‘n the man movin’ on t’ the next round o’ the SUCKATE TOURNAMENT… IS THE FIVE TIME! FIVE TIME! FIVE TIME! FIVE TIME! FIVE TIME WCW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
BOOKER TRENEE YOUNG:
Sensei’s Judgment - 01:08
I… I don’t— do I really need to say anything?BUFF BAGWELL:
This is the greatest night in the history of our sport.Booker T exits the ring as EMTs rush out from the back to check on Kit Sackett and Gus De La Vega. Booker T stops on the stage to look over his shoulder dramatically, like an image from a parody of Street Fighter.RENEE YOUNG:
Why is he focusing so much effort on this? He came here to guide Rok-C and he’s done nothing but become distracted by… well, everything! And what’s he even supposed to be? He acts like a king, a soldier, a thug, and now… THIS! I don’t get it! He’s like, some kind of mad man!BUFF BAGWELL:
Ya’ know, Renee, people called Louis Armstrong a mad man when he said he was going to the moon. Now he’s up there and we’re all down here dealing with a climate crisis and cancel culture. Really makes you think.RENEE YOUNG:
What? No, gross! It doesn’t! You have to literally NOT think to come to that conclusion. Oh my god, let’s just get on with the next match.Fade.
Post by Craig on Feb 19, 2022 21:54:00 GMT
Before the next match starts, we hear the theme song for Maxwell Jacob Friedman play and the small crowd there comes to their feet and start their booing of the X-Division champion.RENEE YOUNG:
Wow, well it would seem like we are going to be joined here tonight by Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Marcus, I didn’t have this on my rundown for tonight, did you?BUFF BAGWELL:
I’m gonna be real honest with you, Renee. I had no idea we even got rundowns. What else is on there?RENEE YOUNG:
You just wing this every week?BUFF BAGWELL:
You don’t?MJF is in the ring with Wardlow behind him and he has an annoyed look on his face. He’s given a microphone from the ringside area.MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN:
I can’t believe I’m here. I can’t believe I’m on an episode of Eruption. For the great career I’ve already put together, this is most certainly one of the lowest points of it. I mean, look at this crowd? I’ve seen bigger crowds on world star at Golden Corrals.The crowd may be small, but their collective voices are loud in the small arena booing the statement from MJF.MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN:
Eruption is a place for secondhand champions like Cody Rhodes to pick up ‘hard earned’ wins over guys like Craven Knyte. This place is where second rate competitors go to hone their craft when they can’t cut it in the ring with guys like me. So, I’m sure tonight is the thrill of this crowds life getting to see an actual real life wrestling superstar live and in the flesh. You’re probably all wondering how this wound up being your lucky night.Friedman still has a perpetual look of annoyance on his face.MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN:
You see, I didn’t know that when you became a champion, you had a little thing called ‘contractual obligations’ that you had to keep. Those obligations include showing up on this dumpster fire of a YouTube show and wasting my time down here with all the bank tellers and Wal-Mart cashiers in this audience tonight. I mean, I am the X-Division champion. I have better things to do and better places to be. Yet, here I am, so I figured I would make the most of it. I’m going to make someone’s dream come true back there in the back tonight. I’m going to put this X-Division championship on the line against any schmuck back there who wants to come out here and have the night of his life by standing in this ring with me.RENEE YOUNG:
An open challenge for the X-Division title! Someone is about to have a big night back there!BUFF BAGWELL:
Can I accept it?RENEE YOUNG:
I don’t see why not. Go on, Marcus!BUFF BAGWELL:
I just ate a few hours ago. Doesn’t seem like a great idea.A surprising and recognizable voice comes on as MJF waits for his opponent.MATT CARDONA:
An open challenge? Maxwell, partner, you can’t just be handing out open challenges when you have a challenger set in stone waiting on you.Cardona and Chelsea Green appear at the top of the small ramp as MJF’s annoyed look turns to anger. The crowd actually cheers a bit at the sight of Cardona there.MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN:
Matt, I know your motto is that you’re ‘always ready’ but do yourself a favor, turn around and walk your happy little ass back to the back and wait for your easy win later tonight. You’ll get your turn when I’m ready to give you your turn.MATT CARDONA:
What’s a matter, Max? You scared?MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN:
What is this? Some kind of reverse psychology thing? That stuff make work on simpletons like that bimbo standing next to you to trick her into marrying you, but see, they don’t work on guys like me. You think I’m scared? Bud, this isn’t an action figure collecting contest. This is real life down here in this ring and when it comes to real life, you’re never going to stand toe to toe with me here. This is my
ring, Matt. MATT CARDONA:
You’re right, Max. You’re too smart for me to goad you into any kind of match tonight for that X-Division title. Hell, I likely may never get my chance at it after you lose to Jay Marte or Gus De La Vega or whoever decides to come down here and beat your ass.MJF shakes his head before bringing the mic back up to his mouth.MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN:
Matt, I’m half tempted to give you a shot here tonight so I can just beat you, shut your mouth and move you back to where you belong - the back of the line. MATT CARDONA:
I’m always ready, Max. You said so yourself. Are you?Max grins at the thought going through his head.MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN:
Yeah, you know what? I like the sound of that. I’ll give you a shot tonight. Right here, in front of these tens of people. But, when I beat you, you can never
and I mean never
challenge for a title of any kind again. Not just X-Division, Matt. I’m talking tag titles, world title, hell, you can’t even challenge for the women’s championship. Nothing. None! Do you understand? You lose here tonight - and trust me, you will
lose here tonight. You can never challenge for any title again. You bring back your little internet championship and I’ll take it from you for good too. What do you say?Matt looks over at Chelsea who seems a bit tentative to agree to those terms. They exchange some words as MJF whispers something to Wardlow in the ring. Finally Cardona brings the mic back up to his face.MATT CARDONA:
I can never challenge for a title again?MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN:
I mean, as someone who has seen you wrestle before, I can attest that it will likely work itself out on it’s own since you’re absolutely atrocious between these ropes. But yes, you can never challenge for any title in WLCW ever again when I win.MATT CARDONA:
You’re on!Chelsea Green’s eyes go wide as it seems Cardona may have zagged instead of zigging there. Wardlow looks over at MJF with a look of concern on his face but MJF nods and says something to him as Matt makes his way down to the ring. The small crowd has come alive as it looks like they’re about to see a title match.RENEE YOUNG:
What in the world is going on here tonight!? We’re going to have an X-Division title match, Marcus!BUFF BAGWELL:
It should have been me, Renee! RENEE YOUNG:
It would seem like Cardona is cashing in his opportunity he won at Ascension here tonight.BUFF BAGWELL:
Yeah, this is a wild one, Renee.
X DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
MATT CARDONA VS MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN
Wardlow steps out of the ring and to the outside. Chelsea Green is on the other side of the ring as a referee comes down from the back to join MJF and Cardona in the ring. MJF was prepared for a match but certainly not prepared for this one. Cardona won his X-Division Championship opportunity in a hard fought win over Prince Devitt at Ascension. MJF came out of that show as the champion after a war with Braun Strowman that started in the kitchen of Madison Square Garden. Matt was here tonight for a match later in the evening, but decided to come out when he heard MJF issue the open challenge. Now, this crowd finds itself preparing to watch an X-Division Championship match here. Certainly not a situation WLCW brass probably likes because this is a matchup they would likely love to have hyped up and advertised for, but sometimes egos get in the way and these matches happen when you least expect them to happen. The referee calls for the bell and we have an official match here.BUFF BAGWELL:
So, if Cardona loses, he can’t have another championship match of any kind?RENEE YOUNG:
That’s the stipulation MJF put into place, yes.BUFF BAGWELL:
Wow, that’s a huge part of all of this! This could be Cardona’s first, last and only championship match in WLCW!
The two go and lock up as MJF seems a little gamey here tonight. Cardona isn’t backing down either as the two go back and forth until Matt gets the advantage, putting MJF into a side headlock. MJF shoves him off and into the ropes as Cardona bounces off and hits him with a shoulder block. Friedman is quickly back to his feet and going nose to nose with Cardona. The two go back and forth and are exchanging some words. We can’t hear what they’re saying but eventually MJF points down at Chelsea Green and says something to Cardona who responds with a big right fist to the face! MJF is driven back and another right from Matt. A third and then a fourth as Max presses up against the ropes with his back. Matt comes rushing in and clotheslines MJF up and over the top rope to the floor as the crowd cheers. Wardlow is there and helps the champion back to his feet. MJF seems beside himself but also a little woozy after all the fists to his face. The referee’s count is to four as Max grabs the bottom rope and pulls himself up to the apron. Cardona is in the ring waiting on him as the champion re-enters the ring. Friedman is hesitant but they go to lock up again. Max tries to go behind his opponent but takes an elbow to the side of the head. Cardona spins around as he does, Max drives his foot right into his crotch and takes him to dick kick city!RENEE YOUNG:
Oh my! A low blow from MJF!BUFF BAGWELL:
You can be always ready but you’ll never be ready for that!RENEE YOUNG:
The referee may disqualify him for that one!BUFF BAGWELL:
I don’t think that’s how Cardona wanted this to go!
The referee admonishes MJF and goes to check on the downed Cardona. He’s draped himself over the second rope as Friedman is calling out to Wardlow now. He’s trying to get Mr. Mayhem to grab the X-Division championship and slide it into the ring to him. Wardlow isn’t paying attention to him though as Chelsea Green has moved around the ring and has Wardlow’s attention. She’s draping her finger down his shoulder and chest as Wardlow has a smirk smile on his face. MJF is getting angry yelling at him to get the title for him. Wardlow goes to turn his attention towards MJF, but Chelsea grabs him and pulls Wardlow close to her. It looks like she’s going to almost kiss him she’s so close. Wardlow has his hands out to his side as Max is now reaching over the ropes and swiping at Wardlow to get his attention while the referee still checks on Cardona. Wardlow finally snaps to as MJF is incensed screaming at him. Wardlow goes over to grab the X-Division title for MJF as Chelsea Green gets up on the apron now. MJF says some disparaging things to her and Chelsea slaps him across the face! Max is angered even more now but before he can react, he’s rolled up from behind by Cardona as Wardlow goes to slide the title in the ring! The referee makes the count! 1..2…3! New champion!
Pinfall - 4:02
Your winner...and NEW X-Division Champion, Matt Cardona!RENEE YOUNG:
Oh my goodness! New champion, Marcus! New champion!BUFF BAGWELL:
Cardona has done it! On Eruption! What a night!RENEE YOUNG:
MJF tried to get Wardlow to get the championship for him to use as a weapon but Chelsea Green intervened. Just like she did at Ascension!BUFF BAGWELL:
She’s such a good luck charm! I wish I had one like her!MJF rolls out of the ring as Cardona grabs the X-Division Championship that Wardlow had slid in the ring and holds it up over his head. The crowd is cheering him as he’s taken the title off of MJF in this impromptu match tonight!

While the fans are still reeling from the shocking title change just moments ago, we abruptly cut backstage where we see Booker T making his way toward the rear exit. Still shirtless and in his karate pants, he places his hand on the door and shoves it open. However, before he can leave the arena, he hears a voice from the distance.
ROK-C: Book, wait!
The live crowd cheers as Rok-C runs onto the scene, having already changed out of her gear. Booker T turns and looks at her, eyes bugged out.
ROK-C: We need to talk, okay? I've got a big match coming up in a couple days... HUGE, actually. Can you stop... whatever all this is, and help me out? You're supposed to be my mentor. That's the whole reason you're here and, like... you've done nothing but hang me out to dry at every opportunity.
BOOKER T: Rok... da' Booka' Man is sympathetic t' yo' situation... walkin' into Vengeance 'n knowin' you 'bout t' get yo' ass beat by Rowdy Ronda is a helluva' thang, ya' dig? But opportunity inna' land o' da' risin' sun has come knockin' 'n it's time t' make somethin' right that was done wrong upon da' Booka' Man one score ago!
She places her hands on her hips and looks down at the floor, frustrated. Booker T just stares her down, offering very little in the way of comfort.
BOOKER T: I been chasin' this shampoo dream for as far back as I can rememba'... once befo', it got snatched out my grasp by 'at low down dirty fiend, Edge! Now, it's mine fa' the takin' 'n they ain' nobody 'bouts t' stop me! Look, Rok... if you had two shots, two opportunities... t' seize ever'thang you ever wanted in one moment... would yo' ass capture it? Or just let it slip... fo' the second time?
Rok-C just shakes her head and storms off camera, leaving Booker T to himself. He watches her go and shakes his head, a look of disappointment on his face.
BOOKER T: That's what I thought, kid.
Booker T walks through the door and out into the parking lot. The door slams shut behind him. A few seconds pass and the camera pans over to reveal Renee Michelle watching from just around the corner. She has a cell phone pressed to her ear.
RENEE MICHELLE: I don't know why you even care... but he's on the move, honey. I guess he's flying to Japan tonight to do your stupid commercial.
She listens to who we assume is Drake Maverick on the other line.
RENEE MICHELLE: I love you, too. And no offense, but you sounded like an IDIOT quoting Tombstone in your interview tonight. Maybe let Jamie handle the trash talk from now on. And don't think for one second that you're running off to Japan to try and stop him. You need to be worried about--
The call abruptly ends. She looks down at her phone, furious.
RENEE MICHELLE: SERIOUSLY?!

We return to ringside and rejoin the announce team.RENEE YOUNG: That Booker T, he really wants to be in a shampoo commercial.BUFF BAGWELL: Can you blame him? That nappy hair of his ain't gettin' no younger, girl!
This is when The Beast's music hits. The crowd pops HUGE! BUFF BAGWELL: Ahhhh' stuff, here comes Brock! RENEE YOUNG: This crowd is going absolutely nuts!Out steps The Beast, walking out onto the ramp with purpose in his step. He means business as he storms straight down the ramp and jumps up onto the apron. He climbs through the ropes and starts hopping around the ring, throwing air punches in preparation.BUFF BAGWELL: Renee, he looks ready to run through a brick wall... don't ya' think?RENEE YOUNG:
I'd say he doesn't look happy. After his loss at the PPV, I can't really blame him though.There might as well be smoke coming out of his ears as he grabs the top rope with both hands and looks up at the entrance ramp. He's just waiting for his opponent. The unfortunate soul just so happens to be Adam Grace. He walks out to his music and makes a very, very slow walk towards the ring.
Pour guy. This is like lightweight versus heavyweight.BUFF BAGWELL:
Hey, if you want to play with the big boys. Here's your shot, buddy! Good luck!
BROCK LESNAR VS ADAM GRACE
The ref waits for Adam to slide into the ring and on his feet before calling for the bell. A brutal clothesline turns Adam inside out! Brock wastes no time in picking up Adam and delivering an emphatic F5!!!!! BUFF BAGWELL:
One more, Brock!RENEE YOUNG:
I'd say he has learned his lesson with that.
He doesn't go for another F5, but he doesn't go for the pin either...... Rather, he locks in a guillotine choke! Adam squirms around trying to break free, but Brock has it locked in good and refuses to let go. Adam taps out and the referee calls for the bell!
BROCK LESNARBrock continues to lock in the hold as the referee and officials try to get him to let go..RENEE YOUNG: Look at him! He's lost it!BUFF BAGWELL: The Beast has been unleashed, Renee! This isn't pretty.Nobody can get Brock to break the hold as Adam's body goes limp and his lips start to turn purple. RENEE YOUNG: Let him go, Brock!
SUBMISSION - 2:08
Just as the poor man was about to see the light, Brock breaks the hold and jumps to his feet. Medical officials tend to Adam, who is unconscious and in rough shape. Brock stares down at him with an evil glare. BUFF BAGWELL: He has went to a different level now. Not many can match that intensity. Especially not Adam Grace. Let's just all hope the guy is alright, Renee.
He takes another look at the damage he just caused before turning and exiting the ring.
Post by dustin on Feb 20, 2022 18:13:40 GMT
While Adam Grace is being slowly attended to, we cut backstage to find Josh Matthews. He's in hot pursuit of someone up ahead of him at the end of a long hallway..
JOSH MATHEWS: Brian, wait!
As he gets closer, you can see the mullet. It's Brian alright... Brian Pillman Jr, the man who just cost his tag team partner his singles match just earlier tonight.
JOSH MATTHEWS: Any comments on your actions earlier?
BRIAN PILLMAN JR: What do you mean?
He takes offense to the question, getting up in Josh's face. So close that he starts nudging him up against the wall. The stench of alcohol hits Josh in the face like a ton of bricks.
BRIAN PILLMAN JR: You got a problem with me, huh?
JOSH MATTHEWS: No.... what's wrong with you?!?!?!
He squirms away from Brian and backs up about six steps.
JOSH MATTHEWS: You're turning your back on your own friends, Brian!
Brian is so wasted he doesn't even realize what Josh is talking about. His eyes are glazed over as he just keeps the same angry look on his face. Josh is left with no choice but to walk away. The camera zooms in on Brian's face as we fade out. He's got the look of a man that doesn't even know where he is.
