Skrabz gets Forge to his feet and sets him up in the corner of the ring.
Ray Hudson: To set Forge up for the finish, maybe.
The fans erupt, as Candi Bratton slides into the ring with her Mile High Wrestling Championship belt.
Ray Hudson: Wait a minute!!!
Just as Skrabz turns around to go get the sledgehammer, Candi Bratton comes flying at him with the belt. But Skrabz ducks, and Candi is sent with her belt right into Forge’s skull!!!
Wavy Crockett: Nooooooooo!!!!!!
Candi gets to her feet looking at Forge as he falls flat to his face. She grins anyways and turns back to Skrabz, who meets her with a Mic Check.
Ray Hudson: Mic Check to the champion!!!
DING DING DING
Ray Hudson: Wait what?!
Skrabz sits on the mat looking confused, as “Next Hype” by Tempa T begins playing throughout the arena.
Wavy Crockett: What the fuck…?
Byron Brown: And the winner of this match… Skrabz!!!
Wavy Crockett: WHAT?!!!
Skrabz looks over at the referee, asking what is going on.
Ray Hudson: What the hell is going on?
The camera reveals blood from a cut dripping down Forge’s forehead.
Ray Hudson: Candi Bratton busted Forge open!!
Skrabz gets to his feet, and now notices Forge is bleeding.
Wavy Crockett: So how the hell does Skrabz win?!
Skrabz doesn’t seem sure if he’s satisfied with the way he has won.
Ray Hudson: First Blood…
Candi gets into sitting position, and Skrabz runs at her with the Penalty Kick.
Ray Hudson: Skrabz kicks Candi’s head off, for interrupting his match!!
Wavy Crockett: She helped that boy win!! Where’s the respect?
Skrabz grabs the Mile High Wrestling Championship and stares at it.
Wavy Crockett: Put that down! That’s not your’s!!!
Skrabz raises it into the air, as we hear a mixture of cheers and boos.
Ray Hudson: Will this be the scene at the end of The Rise, in two weeks??
All of a sudden, Skrabz drops the belt and quickly rolls out of the ring, as all five members of The Shieldmaidens slide into the ring.
Wavy Crockett: Uh oh! You done fucked up!!
RJ and Widow look out at Skrabz and RJ says a few words to him, as he smirks.
Wavy Crockett: He thinks he’s so cute. These people ain’t to be played with, Skrabal!!
All five women surround Candi Bratton, as Forge starts getting to his feet.
Ray Hudson: This doesn’t look good for the Champ…
All of a sudden the fans start cheering as Emily Falls comes running down the ramp.
Wavy Crockett: What the hell?!
Emily slides into the ring and all five members of The Shieldmaidens start stomping away at her.
Wavy Crockett: She tried, I guess.
Bandit and Widow lift Emily up.
Wavy Crockett: I guess….
RJ turns around and jumps onto the middle rope and springboards at Emily with Maiden’s Mercy!!
Ray Hudson: Maiden’s Mercy!!!
Forge picks Candi Bratton up and gives her some Twisted Steel!!
Wavy Crockett: Twisted Steel!!!
Skrabz now stands at the top of the stage area, smirking.
Wavy Crockett: Yeah, you safe up there, boy!
Forge begs Skrabz to come back.
Wavy Crockett: He ain’t coming, Forge!
Ray Hudson: That’s all we got tonight! See you next week….
Skrabz just keeps smirking and throws up both middle fingers, as Episode 7 comes to an end…
The official opening video of Mile High Wrestling begins showing. “Colorado” by TECH N9NE starts playing for the first 27 seconds of the track, and then the hook is looped for a second time.
Yeah, uh-huh, uh-oh, no, damn
An overview of Downtown Denver is shown during the night, with a baby blue and orange color scheme.
It-it-it-it-it-it that good Colora-
The screen flickers back and forth rapidly, between cuts of Downtown Denver and the Mile High Wrestling logo, concluding with the logo turning sideways and spinning off into the screen like a ninja star.
(-Do, do, do, do)
You know it’s that fire
I can’t get no higher
Samantha “The Titaness” Hamilton is shown stepping over the top rope to enter the ring, followed by “Desert Rose” Anya flying in the air with a moonsault.
(Do, do, do, do)
I came to turn the night up
Now watch me as I light up
“The Party Boy” Chris Mosh is shown high fiving some fans, followed by all five members of The Shieldmaidens standing in the ring.
(-Do, do, do, do)
You know it’s that fire
I can’t get no higher
Forge is shown ramming his head into Deuce Holmes’ face, followed by Emily Falls performing a Moonsault.
(Do, do, do, do)
I came to turn the night up
Now watch me as I light up
Skrabz is shown delivering the Mic Check to Candi Bratton, followed by Candi Bratton raising the Mile High Wrestling Championship in the air, as the video fades away, and the cameras are in the arena where fireworks are exploding. The instrumental to “Colorado” plays through the sound system, as the camera pans around the Denver crowd.
Ray Hudson: Welcome everyone to the eighth episode of Mile High Wrestling!!! And we are exactly one week from our huge night in Phoenix, Arizona!
Wavy Crockett: And we thought our homestate of Louisiana was hot, Ray. Arizona is a fucking sauna, I hear…
We see many signs in the crowd, such as “Bitches Get Stitches”, “Martyr Machine”, “HcW is still alive?”, and “Mic Check”.
Ray Hudson: But tonight, as usual, Denver is the place to be…
The familiar screams of “Big Bad Wolf” from In This Moment begins to play as the crowd gets to their feet.
Wavy Crockett: Here comes my favorite, already!!
Candi Bratton steps out from behind the curtain with the Mile High Wrestling Championship over her shoulder. She stops for a moment as she soaks in the cheers before she finally smirks and steps down the aisle towards the ring.
Ray Hudson: I don’t think her match is scheduled just yet, so it should be interesting to hear why she is out here right now.
Wavy Crockett: She’s out here because she can be, Ray.
Candi moves up the ringsteps and into the ring, as she walks to one side and holds up the championship as the crowd cheers for her. She’s wearing her PG rated T-shirt this week with no actual swearing on it and her logo on the back, as she moves to each side of the ring, holding the title high before moving over and grabbing the microphone from ringside.
Wavy Crockett: Shhhh…..
Candi Bratton: Well if it isn’t motherfucking Denver!
Candi places the championship back onto her shoulder as she continues.
Candi Bratton: I can say that because I’m officially a Denver resident.
More cheers from the crowd.
Candi Bratton: Not going to lie. I wasn’t intending to move to this piece of shit town, but here I am. All acclimated and shit. I’m thinking of investing locally in a business or two. Roots, right?
The fans start chanting “Candi! Candi! Candi!”
Candi Bratton: But that ain’t why I’m out here right now. There are some cocksuckers in the back who think that I’m a poor representative of this motherfucking company. Candi Bratton ain’t good enough, or pretty enough, or athletic enough to be the fucking face of Mile High Wrestling.
The crowd picks up some boos.
Candi Bratton: Well, I got something to say about that.
Candi walks right up to the camera and flips the bird and the crowd goes nuts.
Candi Bratton: All you judgemental pricks in the back can just go fuck yourself because you are looking at who represents this company. I’m the goddamned motherfucking Mile High Wrestling Champion and there hasn’t been anyone who’s been able to do anything about it. In fact…
Candi puts her finger on her chin, being all dramatic about thinking.
Candi Bratton: I beat that model-wanna-be Anya. I beat that genetic freak Hamilton. I beat that ugly toad Master who hasn’t been the same since. I beat Emily Falls. For crying out loud, now that I think about it, in singles competition there hasn’t been anyone who can beat me!
“Are you dizzy blud?”
Wavy Crockett: How dare he interrupt the champ!!!
Candi Bratton looks annoyed as Tempa T’s “Next Hype” starts to play, signaling the arrival of Skrabal Stanzas.
Ray Hudson: Here comes the #1 Contender for the Mile High Wrestling Championship.
After a few seconds Skrabz walks out on to the stage area with a confident swagger and a smug smirk on his face. He paces across the entrance way taking the time to look out into the crowd on each side with his right fist raised in the air, which receives a mixed reaction. As he returns to the middle of the stage he takes a microphone from the back pocket of his loose-fitting jeans.
Wavy Crockett: This is so disrespectful…
Ray Hudson: I’m sure Skrabz is still hot about what Candi did last week…
In the ring, Candi Bratton raises her microphone to her mouth but Skrabz interrupts before she can speak.
Skrabz: Shush now, fam.
Skrabz smirks at Candi who looks him straight in the eyes and calls him a “mother fucker”.
Wavy Crockett: Oh no he didn’t!
Skrabz: You done said too much already and to be real witchu, ya potty mouth startin’ a make man feel sick… I ain’t talkin’ ’bout the words ya choose ta use though, fam. I jus’ mean you out here talkin’ a whole load a shit.
Some cheers can be heard from the crowd.
Skrabz: See you said all them tings but not a single one matter coz at no point did you mention man like Skrabz… You can’t keep over lookin’ man though, nah. The Rise in Phoenix is jus’ round the corner, the clock is countin’ down and the alarm is about to sound time up on ya lil’ title reign. So you besta wake the fuck up and snap out of your day dream coz man like Skrabz a be ya worst nightmare, on some Rambo on Elm Street type a shit.
The fans react positively as Skrabal pauses and looks arrogantly out in to the crowd.
Ray Hudson: Things are getting interesting…
Candi Bratton: Well, if you hadn’t interrupted me, I would have gotten to you, goddamn it. Besides, fucking Rob Mack is too busy knocking up the help to get me the subtitles I asked for whenever you cut a goddamed promo.
There’s some laughter from the crowd.
Wavy Crockett: Ahhahahhahahhaha!!!
Candi Bratton: You and I will definitely tear the place down, come The Rise. But unfortunately, every other mother fucker in the back wants to get in on our business so I had to come out here and cut them all down to fucking size. What else you gotta mumble, Scabs?
Skrabal shakes his head and looks at Candi through squinted eyes from under a furrowed brow.
Skrabz: Man’s vocab might not be on no Queen’s English tea and crumpets vibe but he ain’t mumble, fam. This ain’t no Gucci Gang shit. But since ya need subtitles I’m a put it English for you, one time. The only thing you need to cut down to size is your portions coz them calories will kill you if I don’t… and as far as everyone else go… I ain’t see nobody out here but me and you, blad.
Skrabal drops his microphone on the floor causing it to cut out with a burst of static. With his eyes locked on Candi, he starts walking to the ring as the crowd roars to life.
Ray Hudson: It’s about to go down right here in Denver!!
Wavy Crockett: That fool bout to get whooped!
Candi drops the title on the mat, along with the microphone as she looks to be more than ready to fight Skrabz, right here and right now.
Ray Hudson: The Rise is coming early!!
The moment, however, is interrupted by the roar of a motorcycle’s engine followed by the pounding drums and guitars of Metallica’s “Hardwired”, which causes the fans to lose their shit as the Martyr Machine himself, Forge, storms out onto the stage and down the ramp!
Wavy Crockett: NOW shit is about to get interesting!!
Skrabz looks pissed and so does Candi, as the President of the Chrome Dragons pulls himself up onto the apron and enters the ring with fury in his eyes.
Ray Hudson: Well, I thought we were about to see Skrabz and Candi Bratton throw down…
The number one contender and the champion look between each other, then at Forge, then back again… trying to decide what’s about to go down.
Wavy Crockett: Maybe Forge and Candi will double team Skrabz for interrupting the champ…
Ray Hudson: I doubt that…
Forge, however, takes a microphone from his back pocket and glares at them a moment before lifting the stick.
Forge: No, don’t stop on my account.
Forge gestures between the two.
Forge: Go on. Fight. Tear each other apart. Matter of fact?
Leaving the ring, Forge goes to ringside and moves along the barricade for a moment, before quite blatantly, snatching one fan’s bag of popcorn and another’s beer.
Wavy Crockett: Aha! Forge is on that gangsta shit…
Setting them on the apron, he grabs a chair from under the ring and rolls back in, unfolding it and taking a seat.
Forge: There. Now fucking have at it, shitheads. Show me some blood.
Wavy Crockett: This is great!!
Munching on stolen snacks and pilfered brew, Forge stays in the corner, watching and waiting while Skrabz and Candi stare at him incredulously.
Ray Hudson: You just can’t trust Forge Mitchell.
Just then ‘Centuries’ by Fall Out Boy hits the speakers and “Pretty” Ricky Stanton, CEO of Stanton Enterprises, the network provider for Mile High shows up on the screen. He gives a slow clap.
Ray Hudson: I had a feeling…
“Pretty” Ricky Stanton: Wow…I mean…WOWWWW. As much as we all probably want to see this go down, I think it wouldn’t be good for business to give away such a great match this week. And Forge! How ’bout you! I thought Candi cut your tongue out and shoved it up your ass! The Pretty Boy watched you get pummeled last week and I laughed at ya! Laughed! You look like a broke down version of Rocky Balboa.
Candi Bratton nods, inside the ring.
Candi Bratton: He’s got a point there, Forget. You were bleeding like it was your time of the month.
“Pretty” Ricky Stanton: Sitting there eating your popcorn like you’re a Michael Jackson meme or something. I mean, one whipped your ass, the other cleaned your clock. The pain medication must be goooooooooddddddddd.
Stanton laughs at Forge.
“Pretty” Ricky Stanton: But I digress. Your boss will probably end this little spat. But for now, Candi, Skrabz…don’t let Forge bait you into something. He wants that title ’cause he thinks he’s earned it.
Stanton laughs again.
“Pretty” Ricky Stanton: Far from the truth!
Stanton gives the handgun gesture to Forge. Forge though, leans back in the chair a little, munches down another handful of popcorn, then gulps down the rest of the beer, tossing the cup out of the ring.
Forge: The Pretty Bitch has arrived. And, as per usual, he’s keeping his distance. Guess you CAN teach an old bitch new tricks. Now if we could just get Candi here to quit eating her own shit we might have something to brag about.
The popcorn goes flying and Forge stands up, dusting himself off.
Forge: If I were you, Stanton, I’d leave the arena before I get backstage. Unless you don’t mind losing half the gate because I’ve crippled you before you step in the cage with me. As for you two jackasses?
Folding up the chair, Forge keeps a firm grip on it, not taking his eyes off the champ or the challenger.
Forge: No matter which of you wins at The Rise? You still lose. Because I’ll be waiting to run you down like roadkill on the highway to Hell.
“Hardwired” hits again, as Forge leaves the ring and heads up the ramp, chair still in hand… no doubt ready to hunt down Stanton backstage.
Wavy Crockett: Forge is about to fuck “Pretty” Ricky Ricky Ricky up!
Candi clears her throat, as the music fades.
Candi Bratton: If you two pussies are done preening over there, perhaps you can let us main event players get some business done here!
Candi motions between herself and Skrabz.
Ray Hudson: NOW here we go!
Robert Mack: Actually…
The camera turns to show the Owner of Mile High Wrestling standing on the stage area.
Wavy Crockett: What the hell, man?
Robert Mack: As much as we’d surely all love to see you two fight, a week before your big Championship Match…. we can just go ahead and save that for The Rise.
Some boos come from the Denver crowd, as Rob smiles, with understanding.
Robert Mack: I know, I know. But later tonight…. Mr. Skrabz has a match with the beautiful and talented “Desert Rose” Anya!
Some cheers break through the boos.
Robert Mack: And right now…? Our Mile High Wrestling Champion has a Tag Team Match…
Tag Team Match
Candi Bratton & Emily Falls
(Robi Jean Mitchell & Ophelia Blaque)
“Friday” by Rebecca Black begins playing throughout the arena, as the fans cheer. Skrabz says something to Candi, with a smirk, then exits the ring as Candi flips him off.
Wavy Crockett: You better run, chump!
Emily Falls steps out onto the stage area with a big smile. She shakes Robert Mack’s hand, then jumps up and down, looking around the Magness Arena.
Ray Hudson: We gotta take a break. We’ll be right back with this big Tag Team Match…
We go to break.
We are back from our break, as the lights dim. On the tron the Shieldmaiden’s motto appears “Hell is empty and the Maidens are here.” The opening of Marilyn Manson’s “This Is The New Shit” starts ramming it’s way onto the soundsystem. The Shieldmaiden’s logo pops up on the entrance screen.
“Babble babble bitch bitch
Rebel rebel party party
Sex sex sex and don’t forget the violence
Blah blah blah got your lovey-dovey sad-and-lonely
Stick your stupid slogan in
Everybody sing along”
Shieldmaidens’ President, Robi Jean “RJ” Mitchell, steps out first, to her immediate right stands her VP, Alex “Bullet” Carbajal, to her left stands her Sgt-At-Arms, Ophelia “Widow” Blaque. Fellow group members, Jackie “Bandit” Layton and Fianna Donnelly, take their places on either end of their officers, the five women all staring dead at the ring.
Byron Brown: The following contest is a Tag Team Match for one fall! In the ring already, weighing in at a combined weight of 370 pounds… BOTH residing right here in Denver, Colorado….. Emily Falls and the Mile High Wrestling Champion……. Candi Bratton!!!
“Are you motherfuckers ready
For the new shit?
Stand up and admit
Tomorrow’s never coming
This is the new shit
Stand up and admit”
Byron Brown: And their opponents… weighing in at a combined weight of 240 pounds….. from New Orleans, Louisiana……. they are being accompanied to the ring by their fellow Shieldmaidens… Robi Jean Mitchell and Ophelia “Widow” Blaque!!!
As the chorus rages over the speakers, RJ leads her group to the ring. They surround the ring, Bandit and Bullet going around the right while Widow and Fianna go to the left. They nod to each other as they wait for the chorus to kick in again.
As soon as the chorus starts, RJ nods and the five women all climb up into the ring and make their way to the middle, taking their places as they face the hard camera in the same order they stood on the stage. The chorus plays again and RJ raises her fist, the other four doing the same in unison, all seemingly ready to conquer the world before them.
DING DING DING
Senior Referee Michael Mack has called for the bell, and it looks like we’re starting off with Ophelia and Candi.
Wavy Crockett: My favorite wrestler gets to start the match!
Ray Hudson: The Champ vs The Widow!
Candi starts flipping off Widow, as Widow looks back at RJ and laughs. RJ laughs with her, shaking her head.
Wavy Crockett: Candi bout to raise some hell.
Ophelia gets into grapple position, and the two lock up.
Ray Hudson: Starting off with some grappling.
Ophelia starts pushing Candi towards the corner. Candi spins her around right before they get to the corner, and gets her into the corner. The ref pulls Candi off of Ophelia.
Ray Hudson: Candi Bratton has to defend her Mile High Wrestling Championship for the first time ever, next Wednesday.
Ophelia looks at Candi without a concern. Candi rolls her eyes, and the two grapple again.

Ray Hudson: Widow will be fighting for the Tag Team Titles, next week.
Ophelia gets to her feet and quickly drops an elbow on Candi.
Ray Hudson: Ophelia dropping an elbow on the Tattle Tail!

Candi drops Ophelia down, then goes for the pin.
Ray Hudson: She’s going for a pin!

Wavy Crockett: Nooo, don’t tag her in!
Ray Hudson: Candi has tagged in Emily…

Wavy Crockett: I still don’t understand what Candi sees in Emily…
Ray Hudson: Chill, Wavy!
Emily gives Ophelia a second European uppercut.
Ray Hudson: Emily in control of this match.
Emily gives Ophelia a neckbreaker.
Wavy Crockett: Well, maybe Candi got her right, cause she’s doing good…
Emily gets Ophelia into position for the sharpshooter, but Ophelia starts kicking her way out of it.
Wavy Crockett: Damnitt, I jinxed her!
Emily has stumbled backwards, but is still standing. As Ophelia gets to her feet Emily runs at her with a spear.
Ray Hudson: Spear! Spear!
Emily tags in Candi.
Ray Hudson: Emily tags Candi back in.
Ophelia hits Candi with a spinning heel kick as she gets into the ring. She starts stomping away at Candi.
Wavy Crockett: Come on, Candi!
As Ophelia steps back, Candi gets to her feet. Ophelia Irish whips her towards the ropes. RJ holds the top rope down, as Candi goes flying out of the ring.
Ray Hudson: That was uncalled for!
RJ hops off the ring apron and starts stomping away at Candi.
Ray Hudson: Oh come on!
Wavy Crockett: Don’t do my girl that, RJ!
Ray Hudson: Shieldmaiden tactics!
Emily hops down from the apron on her side, and starts making her way around.
Ray Hudson: Emily coming to save her tag partner.
Wavy Crockett: They got three other women out there, Emily.
The ref slides out of the ring and tries to stop Emily, while RJ throws her arms up like she’s innocent.
Wavy Crockett: Get Candi back in the ring!
Ophelia slides out of the ring to bring Candi back in.
Ray Hudson: And we’re bringing this action back to the ring, finally.
The ref, Ophelia, and Candi are all back in the ring. Ophelia tags in RJ.

Candi gets ready to run at her, but Ophelia grabs her wrist. Candi breaks out of her grip, as she hops down to the outside, smiling.
Ray Hudson: Widow distracting Candi!
Candi turns around and runs at RJ with a running forearm shot, but she moves and throws Candi towards Emily, knocking her off the apron.
Wavy Crockett: These Shieldmaidens are a helluva team, Ray.
Ray Hudson: That’s undeniable.
Candi gets frustrated, looking down at Emily. She turns around into RJ, who gives her Freyja’s Kiss.
Wavy Crockett: Freyja’s Kiss!!
Ray Hudson: Freyja’s Kiss!!

DING DING DING
Wavy Crockett: Damn….that’s it.
Referee Michael Mack has called for the bell, as “This Is The New Shit” by Marilyn Manson starts playing again.
Byron Brown: And the winners of this match… Robi Jean Mitchell and Ophelia “Widow” Blaque….. The Shieldmaidens!!!
All five Shieldmaidens celebrate in the ring.
Ray Hudson: These women dominate…
The cameras go backstage where Katrina Mack is sitting at her desk. The camera zooms back to show Azurine Vebbins and “Desert Rose” Anya sitting side by side, on the other end of the desk.
Katrina Mack: So my husband tells me that he has spoken with the two of you, and you are interested in coming together as a unit to face The Shieldmaidens next week at The Rise?
Both ladies look at each other, then back at Katrina, with a nod.
Katrina Mack: Sounds good to me. Because between me and you…
Katrina looks past the two superstars, at her door, then back at the Azurine and Anya.
Katrina Mack: He was originally talking about bringing that talking robot and her furry animal friend in as a surprise….
Both Anya and Azurine look confused.
Katrina Mack: I knew it’d be a better decision to give the opportunity to two superstars who’ve actually proven themselves to the Mile High Wrestling audience. You ladies are championship material.
“Desert Rose” Anya: Thank you, Katrina…
Azurine nods in agreement.
We fade to commercials.
Back from break, and the screen is black. The sound of a blade being rubbed against a wet stone breaks through the darkness. Slowly we fade in to see a large Bowie knife blade sliding back down a wet stone. As the tip slides off the stone the blade flips over and begins another stroke down the stone. We go wider and wider until we see the body of a large man. His head is down and his long, stringy black hair covers his face, masking his identity.
The man’s wide shoulders are covered in a leather vest with his ragged t-shirt barely sticking out underneath. He sits on a wooden stump, and by the background it appears he is in the middle of the woods. As if sensing that someone is near and he is being watched, his hands stop. He drops the wet stone from his left hand and his right fist grips tight around the handle of the knife.
Without looking up, or even acknowledging the presence of anyone, he begins to speak.
Man: As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit, and whoever protects their master will be honored. As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. Death and destruction are never satisfied, and neither are human eyes…Proverbs twenty seven, verse seventeen to twenty. Many people say this reflects on how we are influenced by the people that you associate with, but I must disagree. I never had anyone to hang around with, frankly I never had anyone. If this is the true meaning then how does one become a man when he never knows a father? How does one avoid sticking a needle in his arm when they grow up watching their mother do it on a daily basis? The reason is because a man is not made by his surroundings, a man is made from the gravel in his belly, the iron of his will, the anger in his veins, the third eye in his mind, and the sheer determination to prove himself and make something of himself that fuels your body and soul with every breath that you take. I hunt not for sport, I hunt not for survival, I hunt not for trophies…I hunt for the pure fun of seeing the blood spill. I come not to this sport for money, fame, fans, or championships…I come for reasons that most men wouldn’t understand…then again I am not most men. I have come to Mile High Wrestling for death and destruction. I have come to cause chaos, to spill blood, and to leave bodies broken. I am not a man on a mission, or a man with a goal…to quote Alfred, “some men just want to sit back and watch the world burn”. I am one of those men and I want to watch the world burn. The fire that will engulf the world in flames starts here in Mile High Wrestling.
The man flips his head up, tossing the hair from his face revealing he is “The Lost Child” Solomon Cain. He stands slowly and looks deep into the camera.
Solomon Cain: I didn’t start the fire, it was always burning since the world’s been turning. I didn’t start the fire…but I will throw gasoline on it and make it spread until everything and everyone is burnt.
The video package fades out, as the cameras are now backstage where Forge is still looking for “Pretty” Ricky Stanton, holding his steel chair.
Ray Hudson: Well, welcome back to the show.
Wavy Crockett: My dude still ain’t found “Pretty” Ricky?
Deuce Holmes approaches Forge, who looks like he would like to smash Deuce himself with the steel chair.
Deuce Holmes: I come in peace…
Forge snarls at Deuce.
Forge: Where the hell is Ricky hiding?!
Deuce Holmes: I honestly don’t even think he’s still in the building, Trent. But what I do know… is that your match is next. So you need to get on out there for that….
Forge shakes his head, staring a hole through Deuce, before throwing the steel chair down and heading towards the Gorilla position.
Wavy Crockett: Let me find out Stanton ran! Haha.
Ray Hudson: That’s what it sounds like.
The cameras return to the arena, as the roar of a motorcycle engine reverberates through the sound system while two spotlights situated on the stage glare straight ahead in the otherwise-dark arena like two giant headlights. As the grinding guitars and overpowering drums of Metallica’s “Hardwired” start up, a tall figure steps out onto the stage, little more than a living shadow between the bright lights. He strides out to the ramp, the lights going up at this point to show Trenton “Forge” Mitchell standing at the apex. Slamming his taped right fist into his left palm, he pops his neck to one side, then the other, before heading down to the ring, the encroaching hands of the fans all but ignored.
Byron Brown: The following match is for one fall! Introducing first… weighing in at 253 pounds….. from Plant City, Florida……. Forge!!!
Pulling himself onto the apron via the middle rope, Forge turns to look out at the masses peppered with several swooning ladies, then steps fully into the ring. Ascending the turnbuckles, the tattooed powerhouse slides off his cut and holds it high in the air, gripped tightly in his fist… a show of pride toward his club. Dropping back down, he hands it to the attendant with a stern warning to take damn good care of it.
Ray Hudson: Well, Forge will finally go one on one with Ricky Stanton in one week, inside of a Steel Cage.
Wavy Crockett: It’s gonna be awesome, Ray!
Leaning back against the turnbuckles, the stoic biker awaits the start of the match in silence.
Wavy Crockett: Forge is about to take all his frustrations out on the star of Silver Lake.
The lights in the arena go out and the sound effect of thunder echoes throughout the arena, as the entrance way and ring are illuminated in a neon blue light. “Redneck Stomp” by Obituary then hits.
Ray Hudson: Interesting match here, indeed. Ripley is the star of one of The SE Network’s hottest shows; Silver Lake.
Wavy Crockett: Ripley and Ricky Stanton are pimp tight, Ray.
Ripley walks out onto the stage wearing a black hoodie with the hood up, black wrestling tights, and black boots. He turns around showing off a large white skull on the back of his hoodie, he faces forward and stands on the top of the entrance way and looks around the arena as the crowd erupts in cheers, with some scattered boos.
Byron Brown: And his opponent… weighing in at 240 pounds….. from Brooksville, Florida……. Ripley!!!
Ripley then starts walking towards the ring. As he does, he lets out a large scream of “Let’s Go!”.
Wavy Crockett: You better stop….
As he makes his way down the aisle to the ring, Ripley takes time to slap the hands of a few fans. Once he reaches the ring he stops and looks at it, then quickly walks up the steel steps and enters the ring.
Ray Hudson: It’s always a pleasure to see Ripley in action, here in Mile High Wrestling.
In the ring, Ripley paces around, then climbs up in one of the corners of the ring to look out at all of the fans. He points to a few fans as the crowd continues to cheer. He then hops down unzipping his hoodie and tosses it to ringside, and walks to the center of the ring as his music fades out and the lights return to normal.
DING DING DING
Referee Regina Ball has called for the bell, and both superstars step to the middle of the ring.
Wavy Crockett: Here it goes, Ray.
Ripley puts his fist out for Forge to bump, and Forge looks at him stupid.
Wavy Crockett: Get outta here!!
Both superstars lock into a collar and elbow tie-up. Both men stand their ground.
Ray Hudson: Forge definitely not here to make friends.
Ripley gains a half step in the battle so Forge releases and lands a hard overhead chop to the spot he had tied up at.
Ray Hudson: Forge gaining control of this match.
Forge Irish whips Ripley, sending him for the ride into the ropes. They clash in the center of the ring, with both men landing clotheslines. Both men still stand!
Ray Hudson: Two strong men here!
Both men hit the ropes running and both men connect with a hard shoulder block! Both men still standing!
Wavy Crockett: Oh come on!
Both men point to opposite sides of the ring and hit the ropes running.
Ray Hudson: A lot of velocity across this ring!
On the run, Forge connects with a spinebuster which gets a big pop from the crowd.
Ray Hudson: Spinebuster!
Wavy Crockett: My man!
Instead of a lateral press, Forge takes full mount position and drops a heavy barrage of lefts and rights down onto Ripley.
Wavy Crockett: Time to make a muhfucka bleed! My favorite part of the week.
Ripley protects himself as best he can under the blows.
Ray Hudson: Last week it was Forge who was bleeding.
Wavy Crockett: Let Forge hear you say that…
Ripley takes wrist control with both hands and out of that is able to pull guard and finally apply a guillotine choke from his back.
Ray Hudson: Ripley gaining control here…
Ripley cranks the hold in deep with both men dead center of the ring.
Ray Hudson: Could this be it?
Wavy Crockett: Get real…
Somehow, someway, Forge is able to free his chin of the hold and lands a lunging headbutt as he does.
Wavy Crockett: Oh snap!
Ray Hudson: God damn!!!
The back of Ripley’s head connects with the canvas and under the impact of the submission and the strike, both men are on their backs, motionless. Our referee begins his ten-count.
Ray Hudson: Both superstars down!
Instinctively, both men react as the ref shouts: “TWO!!”
Both men make it up to their knees.
Forge is to his feet first.
Ray Hudson: Forge gets to his feet.
Ripley is on his feet.
Ray Hudson: And Ripley’s up!
Forge slams a boot into the gut of Ripley. Forge lifts Ripley into a bodyslam position and puts him down hard with a ring-shaking powerslam!
Wavy Crockett: BOOM!!!
Forge then stacks him up for a pin attempt!
Ray Hudson: What a powerslam!!!
Ripley kicks out hard and is quick to his feet.
Wavy Crockett: He should be dead after that!
Ripley swings hard and connects with a European uppercut. Forge is staggered but nowhere near down.
Ray Hudson: Ripley fighting back hard!
Forge comes back with a brutal belly to belly suplex.
Ray Hudson: Belly to belly suplex!
Forge backs into the ropes as Ripley moves to his feet. Forge connects, dropping Ripley hard with a Piston Kick!
Ray Hudson: Piston Kick!!!
Forge makes a pin attempt.
Wavy Crockett: It’s over!
Wavy Crockett: What the hell?!!
Ripley again attempts to move to his feet and Forge helps him up with a wristlock.
Wavy Crockett: Finish this clown!
Ray Hudson: Where do you get off calling this man a clown?
Forge sends Ripley for the ride, and as he bounces back into the center of the ring, Forge simply crushes Ripley with the Chrome Bomb!
Wavy Crockett: Chrome Bomb!!!
Forge goes for the pin.
Wavy Crockett: Now it’s over!
Somehow Ripley kicks out. And somehow both men move back to their feet. Forge connects with a lunging headbutt!
Ray Hudson: My goodness!!!
Instead of going down, Ripley knocks Forge down with a counter clothesline!
Ray Hudson: Ripley with a never say die attitude!
Forge moves to his feet faster than Ripley expected and is able to connect with a stiff boot to the gut, which he followed with a lifting DDT!
Ray Hudson: DDT to Ripley!
With the crowd on their feet, Forge hooks the leg with a lateral press!
The rest of the capacity crowd stands to their feet as Ripley kicks out yet again!
Wavy Crockett: Bust that man open!!
The second he is completely vertical, Forge violently kicks him in the gut and hits Ripley with a sit-out powerbomb! The ring seems to bounce on it’s cornerposts as they land! Forge points down at the mat demanding that the ref count it!
Wavy Crockett: This is getting ridiculous!!
Forge smacks the mat three times fast and hard in frustration. He moves to his feet, quickly followed by Ripley.
Ray Hudson: The star of Silver Lake is still in it!
Forge sends another lunging headbutt into Ripley.
Wavy Crockett: Done!
Forge mounts Ripley and starts repeatedly driving his forearm into Ripley’s skull, holding the back of his head for leverage.
Ray Hudson: The Martyr Machine is fed up!
Ripley is now visibly bleeding.
Wavy Crockett: There we go!!!
The referee talks Forge off of Ripley, but Forge gets back on him for the pin.
Wavy Crockett: The end…
“Hardwired” by Metallica begins playing, as Forge pushes off Ripley.
DING DING DING
Byron Brown: And the winner of this match… Forge!!!
Forge stands on his feet, looking around at the Magness Arena. While there are the boos that Forge would expect, there’s still many cheers in the crowd.
Wavy Crockett: I hope you’re watching, “Pretty” Ricky!
The cameras go backstage where Jordan Hagan is standing by with Emily Falls.
Jordan Hagan: I am currently standing here with the one and only Emily Falls.
Emily looks as giddy as she can look, while still out of breath from earlier.
Jordan Hagan: What a match earlier tonight. Can you tell us what is up with this new alliance between you and Candi?
Emily Falls: I am so happy to be best friends with the Mile High Wrestling Champion. And we will be friends forever and ever!!
Jordan Hagan: Interesting…. And why do you think she chose you?
Emily Falls: I have no clue!
Jordan Hagan: Well, you two didn’t come out victorious tonight. Do you think she’ll still want to team with you?
Emily Falls: I sure hope so. But no matter what she does, I will still be friends with her.
Jordan Hagan seems lost.
Jordan Hagan: Thank you, Emily…
Jordan waits for Emily to exit, but she just stands there smiling.
Emily Falls: And you know what else, Mr. Jordan? Tonight… I’m gonna challenge Robi to a match at The Rise In Phoenix.
Jordan Hagan: Cool.
Emily just stares at Jordan smiling, until he awkwardly walks away, as we fade to commercials.
We are back from commercials, as “Diamond Teeth Samarai” by YoungBoy Never Broke Again begins playing throughout the arena.
Ray Hudson: Welcome back, fans!
Robert Mack steps from behind the curtains with Co-General Manager Katrina Mack, followed by Co-General Manager Deuce Holmes and his fiance Lavinia. The crowd cheers.
Ray Hudson: Here comes the corporate folks of Mile High.
They all four walk down the ramp and into the ring, where Robert Mack requests a mic, and is given one from the outside by Byron Brown.
Wavy Crockett: What you think they bout to talk about, Ray?
Ray Hudson: Looks like we’re about to find out.
The music fades as Robert puts the mic to his mouth.
Robert Mack: The Rise In Phoenix.
The fans cheer, loudly.
Robert Mack: Sorry Denver, but we’re going to have to leave you for a week…
Some boos seep through those cheers, as Robert smirks.
Robert Mack: Nonetheless, it’s going to be a night to remember. As spoken about on the Coke Mountain radio show, The Rise In Phoenix already has a different atmosphere that separates it from everything else. And that’s how a Pay-Per View should be…
Robert bumps fists with Deuce Holmes.
Wavy Crockett: Hell yeah!
Robert Mack: Now it’s just up to the superstars to capitalize. And I know they will!
Robert nods his head, stroking his chin.
Robert Mack: Because it’s put up or shut up when Candi Bratton defends her Mile High Wrestling Championship for the very first time. And while I was being blamed for just simply “handpicking” Skrabz for the title shot…..if you haven’t already, you’ll see exactly why Skrabz is the number one contender, next week.
Everyone in the ring nods their heads.
Robert Mack: We will see The CEO of Stanton Enterprises stepping into the ring with arguably our deadliest wrestler; Forge. Even more exciting, they will brawl inside of the 15 foot Steel Cage!!!
The fans cheers grow loud.
Wavy Crockett: And Forge is going to murder “Pretty” Ricky!
Ray Hudson: You must have never seen Ricky Stanton in action..
Robert Mack: We will crown our very first Phoenix Champion and Tag Team Champions. It’s just gonna be an amazing night.
Robert shrugs with a smirk, before turning very serious.
Ray Hudson: I can’t wait…
Robert Mack: But let’s talk about that good ol’ HcW, shall we?
The fans boo.
Robert Mack: You see, Tyke… you can deny that you were in on the attack last week all you want, but at the end of the day…..it’s all tuna fishy. You see, you go around talking about how you represent both HcW and Mile High Wrestling, but the simple truth is…… you’ve still yet to sign a contract to join our active roster.
The fans boo even more.
Robert Mack: But boy did you sign that contract for this Tag Team Match coming up, quicker than a virgin having sex. You represent HcW. And sure….I don’t hate HcW. Hell, I don’t even hate Lance Mikes. But I surely don’t respect him. And when a man comes on my show and sneak attacks me, I bite back. And I did just that a couple nights ago on y’all show.
Robert looks back at Deuce and nods, as Deuce nods back.
Robert Mack: But that’s not enough. And at The Rise In Phoenix, me and my boy Deuce are gonna fuck you two bitches up. And when we’re done, and you get all cleaned and stitched up, I still got a contract waiting on you, Tyke.
Robert smirks into the camera.
Robert Mack: Because even though you still ride with the weakest link, I can’t deny your talent. And believe me, it disappoints me everytime I think about the fact that you’re just wasting your talents on that sinking ship.
Robert throws his right hand up, shaking it.
Robert Mack: And no disrespect to Biff Franklin, because quite frankly he is something special. I have nothing but respect for him. HcW was dead before he arrived. And he’s been fighting hard to keep it floating. And I meant it when I told him that if he needed anything, I’d be there for him. But the truth is the truth, and we can’t hide that.
Robert puts up his pointer finger.
Robert Mack: Lance Mikes is a cancer. And that’s your best friend, Tyke. Not me. Not Samantha Hamilton. Lance Mikes is your best friend. And at The Rise In Phoenix….just like the company you two represent……you’re gonna sink and drown…
Robert looks deep into the camera with the coldest stare.
Wavy Crockett: Damn…
Ray Hudson: Wow…
Robert Mack: See you next Wednesday, boys.
“Diamond Teeth Samarai” by YoungBoy Never Broke Again begins playing again, as Robert starts to exit the ring. Deuce stops him, and starts saying something in his ear.
Robert nods, and steps back to the middle of the ring, as his music fades away.
Robert Mack: Oh….one more thing. It won’t be Robert Mack you are stepping into the ring with, next Wednesday. I’m coming just as I came to Hell a couple nights ago. I’m coming as Snakebite.
The fans cheer, as the lights go out except one dim spotlight on Robert Mack. He holds up one finger.
Robert Mack: One. Last. Time.
The lights go pitch black, as we fade to commercials.
Mile High Wrestling Phoenix Championship Tournament Round Two Match
“The Party Boy” Chris Mosh
Alex “Bullet” Carbajal
We our back from the commercial break, and the lights dim as The Shieldmaidens motto “Hell is empty and the Maidens are here!” comes over the Tron as guitar stabs ring out. Concrete Blonde’s “God Is A Bullet” starts up in earnest and four women in matching cuttes; RJ Mitchell, Jackie “Bandit” Layton, Ophelia “Widow” Blaque and Fianna Donnelly, walk out seemingly leading the way for their fifth sister. Alex “Bullet” Carbajal makes her way out in a full length boxing robe, ready for war.
Byron Brown: The following match is for one fall, and is a Round Two Match in the Mile High Wrestling Phoenix Championship Tournament!!! Introducing first, being accompanied to the ring by her fellow Shieldmaidens… weighing in at 135 pounds….. from New Orleans, Louisiana……. Alex “Bullet” Carbajal!!!
The Shieldmaidens make their way to the ring and Bullet steps in, starting to shadowbox the second she steps in. She raises her hands into the air and then nods, ready to go.
Ray Hudson: Welcome back to Mile High, and it’s time to find out who’s going to be facing Samantha “The Titaness” Hamilton at The Rise In Phoenix.
“I’m The One” by DJ Khaled ft Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper, Quavo, and Lil Wayne hits as “Mosh” shows up on the titantron, then shows “Mosh” on black as it zooms out to show it is on a hoodie as “The Party Boy” Chris Mosh turns around.
Byron Brown: And her opponent… weighing in at 210 pounds….. residing in Las Vegas, Nevada……. “The Party Boy” Chris Mosh!!!
Mosh walks down the ramp slapping hands with fans. Mosh walks around the ring slapping hands with the fans around the ring.
Ray Hudson: And the two of you were told to keep your hands off of each other until next week, correct?
Mosh gets to the commentary table and slaps hands with Ray Hudson. He then completely ignores Wavy Crockett’s existence as he goes back around the ring slapping hands with rest of the fans.
Wavy Crockett: Ol punk ass bitch…
When Mosh gets back to the bottom of the ramp, he climbs up on the apron then jumps over the ropes. Chris Mosh slaps hands with Byron Brown, before spinning into the middle of the ring as the camera zooms in on him smirking as he winks into the camera.
Wavy Crockett: Bruh, I can’t wait to slap the fuck out him at The Rise…
DING DING DING
Referee Jack Glascock calls for the bell, and Mosh moves to the center of the ring with his hand out to shake, but Bullet smacks it out of her way as she moves in with a stiff jab.
Ray Hudson: And here we go. Only one of these two superstars will be fighting for the Phoenix Championship, next week.
Mosh was knocked back a step, but counters with a standing dropkick.
Wavy Crockett: IF the lil bitch wins, he better not use the excuse of having two matches in one night as the reason he loses to me.
Both wrestlers move back to their feet and Mosh connects with a spinning neckbreaker.
Ray Hudson: Spinning neckbreaker to Bullet!
Mosh goes for a quick cover.
Again, both wrestlers move to their feet. Mosh scores a double leg takedown.
Ray Hudson: The Party Boy doing real well here.
Mosh catapults Bullet for a snake eyes, but as Mosh releases her, Bullet leaps and is able to springboard off the middle ropes with a flying elbow smash that takes Mosh down hard.
Wavy Crockett: He ain’t shit…
Mosh is face down on the mat. Bullet takes a foot under each arm and crushes his spine with her Plata O Plomo.
Ray Hudson: Plata O Plomo!!!
The referee checks but Mosh will not tap yet.
Wavy Crockett: Give up like you always do, lil bitch!
Bullet releases her grip on his chin and grabs him by his nose with both hands and cranks back hard on his neck.
Wavy Crockett: I’m loving this shit!
Bullet releases, and comes down hard on his nose with a closed fist, as she releases his legs and stands defiantly over him.
Ray Hudson: Bullet is definitely in control now!
With a handful of hair, a confident Bullet pulls Mosh to his feet. From out of nowhere, Mosh connects with a belly to belly suplex!
Ray Hudson: And just like that, Chris Mosh is back in control!
As Bullet goes to stand, Mosh is waiting for her. Mosh snakes his arms inside of her’s and snaps off a tiger suplex! Mosh does not release her arms, instead he bridges for a pinning combination!
Mosh stands and smacks his right leg, letting the crowd know what is next.
Ray Hudson: Looks like it’s time for the Party Pooper!!
Wavy Crockett: Nope…
All of sudden, Wavy Crockett gets up from the announce desk, and begins taking his shirt off.
Ray Hudson: What the hell are you doing, Wavy? You’re gonna get yourself fired!
Mosh turns his attention to the outside of the ring, but as Wavy Crockett gets to the ring, the other four Shieldmaidens step in front of him with their arms crossed.
Ray Hudson: The Shieldmaidens do not want any help.
Wavy Crockett puts his arms up, and mouths “My bad” as he heads back to his seat.
Ray Hudson: You stupid fool! Get your ass back over here.
Bullet spins Mosh around and hits him with Dios Es Una Bala!!!
Ray Hudson: Dios Es Una Bala!!!
Bullet goes for the pin.
Ray Hudson: And that’s it!
Wavy Crockett: Them girls are intimidating, Ray…
The other Shieldmaidens slide into the ring to celebrate with Bullet.
Ray Hudson: That’s what you get!
DING DING DING
“God Is A Bullet” by Concrete Angel begins playing throughout the arena.
Wavy Crockett: That boy is lucky they stopped me though…
Byron Brown: And the winner of this match… advancing to the Final Round of the Mile High Wrestling Phoenix Championship Tournament….. Alex “Bullet” Carbajal!!!
Ray Hudson: No….you’re lucky they stopped you. You made an agreement with Katrina that y’all would not get physical tonight.
Bullet celebrates with her fellow Shieldmaidens in the ring.
Wavy Crockett: Well….I had forgot. My bad…
The cameras go backstage, where Ripley’s cut is being cleaned up, by a nurse.
Ray Hudson: Ripley was busted open by Forge earlier tonight.
Out of nowhere, “The Lost Child” Solomon Cain attacks Ripley, as the backstage personnel start screaming.
Ray Hudson: What the hell is this?!!
Cain throws Ripley to the floor and starts pounding away at his head.
Wavy Crockett: That’s that man from that video package earlier!!
Ray Hudson: Solomon Cain, indeed!
Three referees show up and try to pull Cain off of Ripley, but don’t do too well.
Ray Hudson: The question is; why is he attacking Ripley?!
Robert Mack and Deuce Holmes show up and yank Cain away.
Deuce Holmes: Come on, man!!
Cain jerks away, and leaves the area on his own.
Wavy Crockett: That man got him, for real!
Ray Hudson: We gotta take a break, folks. We’ll be right back…
The camera zooms in on Ripley, bleeding all over again, as we fade to commercials.
We are back from commercial break, as a video package begins with “Sweet Child O’Mine” by Guns N Roses playing. Images of “The One And Only” Rock N’ Roll God begin showing. The video ends with a photoshopped picture of Rock N’ Roll God wearing the Mile High Wrestling Championship.
“Desert Rose” Anya
The cameras return to the arena where Tempa T’s “Next Hype” starts to play througout. The beat builds for ten seconds and then Skrabal Stanzas can be heard saying “Are you dizzy blud?”. The beat explodes and Tempa T immediately comes in with his lyrics.
“What kind of things that you have
When I find out don’t expect me to stop
I’ll come for the P’s that you stack
And come for all the food that you plot
Better hand over the bag
Your boys don’t wanna see you shot
If I kick down the door to your flat
Dun Know I’ll clear out your house on the spot”
Ray Hudson: Well, Rock N’ Roll God is indeed on his way to Mile High Wrestling. We can confirm he will be debuting on next week’s Ninth Episode of Mile High Wrestling; a special Phoenix episode to kickoff The Rise In Phoenix.
Skrabal Stanzas comes walking out from the back and poses with his arms stretched out.
Byron Brown: The following contest is for one fall!! Introducing first… weighing in at 195 pounds….. from Margate, England……. Skrabz!!!
“CLEAR! All the things in your house
CLEAR! All the things in your fridge
SMASH! All your plates from your rack
CLEAR! All of your kids’ toys
CLEAR! All of your CD rack
Won’t get none of your CD’s back”
Skrabz walks to the ring, his slow but deliberate swagger in direct contrast with the hype beat and aggressive lyrics.
“I have to punch up guys
Guys try it with me, I don’t know why
Bax! Pax man straight in his eyes
They floored me, I was looking at the sky
Par! Now I have to go blind
That boy there I swear he gonna die
You’re not bad you’re a mug don’t think you’re a guy
When I slap man you won’t be alright”
Skrabz walks up the steps and climbs into the ring. He stands in the corner of the ring and leans back against the turnbuckle with his arms folded across his chest as the music fades out.
Wavy Crockett: You know, Skrabz and Candi never did fight it out, Ray.
Ray Hudson: It’s probably best we save that for next week, anyways.
Wavy Crockett: Yeah, save Skrabz the embarrassment for next week.
While the instrumental – the first 30 seconds of Within Temptation’s “See Who I Am” – start up, the lights dim. The screen shows a silhouette with most of the features covered by a veil. Above the shadow, the name “Desert Rose” Anya is displayed in a bright, blood-red hue.
Wavy Crockett: You know, Rob actually called me this past week and told me to chill on the women. This chick really complained that I was creeping her out. Like she don’t got a bunch of dudes drooling over her. You know, she’s too skinny for me anyways. I’d break her in half. I..
Ray Hudson: Just shut up, David….
Seconds after the actual lyrics start up, a spotlight shines down at the top of the ramp, where “Desert Rose” Anya is quietly standing, wearing her attire for the ring.
Byron Brown: And his opponent… weighing in at 155 pounds….. from Las Vegas, Nevada……. “Desert Rose” Anya!!!
Anya turns, grinning at the audience, and walks down the ramp with a slow but confident, optimisic walk. She waves to the fans along the way, even high-fiving a few, before arriving at the ring.
Wavy Crockett: You know, I had one of her posters. Threw that shit away after I got off the phone with her. She wanna tattle tail on me on that Twitter shit. That’s why I don’t got a Twitter.
Ray Hudson: No, you don’t have a Twitter cause your wife got into your DMs, and saw those women you were talking to.
Wavy Crockett: Well, that too….
The Desert Rose ascends up the small set of steps … and then enters by jumping, using the closest turnbuckle to ensure she jumps successfully over it. She lands on her feet, turns, and climbs in front of the same turnbuckle she just jumped. Raising a clenched fist, she listens to the audience’s reaction for a good five to ten seconds before getting off the ropes and leaning against them, waiting eagerly for the start of the match.
Wavy Crockett: And what I told you bout telling people my business, Ray…
DING DING DING
Referee John Vigil calls for the bell as Skrabz smiles, looking the Desert Rose up and down.
Ray Hudson: And here we go!
Anya is frustrated and begins threatening Skrabz that he better take her serious.
Wavy Crockett: Mannn, you heard bout Skrabz retweeting Anya’s tweet? Summin bout he wanna get in them drawls?
Skrabz throws his hands up saying he apologizes, all while smirking.
Ray Hudson: Skrabz trying to be charming, maybe.
Anya steps into the middle of the ring, ready to grapple.
Wavy Crockett: Anya too serious though. I bet she a virgin…
Skrabz points at himself and asks if Anya really wants to grapple with him. Focused, Anya nods and yells for him to come on.
Ray Hudson: Anya is a very serious competitor indeed.
Skrabz can’t stop smiling, as he steps to the center of the ring and grapples with Anya.
Wavy Crockett: I’m talking bout in general. She need to lighten up. Live life a little. Sleep with a black man. You know…
Ray Hudson: You’re gonna get yourself fired…
Skrabz pulls the Desert Rose into a headlock, before placing a soft kiss on the top of her head.
Wavy Crockett: Ooooooo!
Ray Hudson: Well, that was inappropriate…
Anya pushes away from Skrabz, as he let’s her go, throwing his hands up again.
Wavy Crockett: Why they put Skrabz up against her anyways?
Ray Hudson: Maybe to get Skrabz ready to fight a woman one on one next week. I don’t know…
Anya quickly runs at Skrabz, and Skrabz quickly grabs her, moving behind her and holding her close to him.
Ray Hudson: This is a little too much…
Wavy Crockett: Shit, sometime that what they like, Ray.
Ray Hudson: Please!
Anya brings her leg up behind her to catch Skrabz’ in his area, but Skrabz quickly moves back, avoiding it, and catches her foot.
Ray Hudson: Close call there!
Anya tries to hop out of Skrabz’ grip, and then ends up hitting a spinning wheel kick, forcing Skrabz to let go as he stumbles a few steps back.
Wavy Crockett: She fighting back, Ray!
Ray Hudson: Of coarse she is!
Anya runs to the ropes, as Skrabz walks after her. Anya jumps to the the middle rope and springboards at Skrabz with a moonsault, in which Skrabz catches her.
Ray Hudson: Moonsault!
Wavy Crockett: He done caught her.
The camera zooms in to show Skrabz looking at Anya’s Desert Rose right in front of his face.
Ray Hudson: Oh my goodness!
Wavy Crockett: I’ma get a copy of this match and send it to Pornhub. Get my $3000 right quick.
Anya wiggles, and then pushes up from Skrabz’ legs before swinging back downwards with a hurricanrana to Skrabz.
Ray Hudson: Alright, here we go. Hurricanrana!!
Anya is red faced, as she gets to her feet and looks at Skrabz, shaking her head.
Wavy Crockett: Look, she firing up, Ray!
Skrabz gets to one knee, holding the back of his head. He still manages to smile at Anya.
Ray Hudson: Anya is not trying to play these games with Skrabz. She came to fight.
Skrabz gets to his feet and looks like he’s ready to get serious, as he gives in and tells Anya to “come on”.
Wavy Crockett: He got serious when he realized she ain’t want it like that huh?
Anya gets into grappling position as Skrabz walks towards her in the same position.
Ray Hudson: This is what we came to see, yes.
Before the two superstars can grapple, Anya sends a superkick right into Skrabz’ face, causing Skrabz to stumble backwards onto the ring ropes.
Ray Hudson: Superkick!!
Anya runs at Skrabz and clotheslines him over the top rope.
Ray Hudson: The Desert Rose is going to make Skrabz take her serious here.
Anya looks out at Skrabz with a smirk of her own.
Wavy Crockett: Look, I think she like him.
Ray Hudson: Stop it…
Anya runs to the opposite side of the ring, as Skrabs starts getting his feet.
Ray Hudson: What she bout to do?!
Anya bounces back and runs at the side Skrabz is on with a suicide dive into the mic killer.
Ray Hudson: Suicide dive!!!
Wavy Crockett: Wow. She wild!
The referee starts to count them out.
Anya rolls herself back into the ring.
Skrabz starts to crawl towards the ring.
Skrabz rolls into the ring, and Anya quickly stomps on him.
Ray Hudson: A seven count from the ref.
Anya gets down and hooks Skrabz into the Yes Lock. The referee checks on Skrabz.
Wavy Crockett: He be talking like he’ll make them girls tap out. Look at him bout to tap out!
Skrabz gets to his knees, while Anya continues wrenching at him with the submission hold.
Ray Hudson: The size difference coming into play.
Skrabz gets to his feet with Anya still hanging on tightly.
Wavy Crockett: He bout to give her a piggy back ride in a minute though.
Before Skrabz can get Anya off, she moves around his body and is able to DDT him into the mat.
Ray Hudson: Wow! DDT into the mat!!
Anya goes for the pin.
Anya quickly gets to her feet, smiling at the damage she’s done to Skrabz.
Wavy Crockett: This woman is wild for real.
Skrabz starts getting to his feet and Anya helps him up the rest of the way, before Skrabz delivers a dropkick out of nowhere.
Ray Hudson: Skrabz taking Anya down with a dropkick!
As Anya gets to sitting position, Skrabz quickly goes for the Penelty Kick!!!
Ray Hudson: Penelty Kick!!!
But Anya moves out of the way just in time, and then quickly moves into position behind Skrabz, to roll him up into a pinning position.
Ray Hudson: Wait, wait, wait!
Both superstars quickly get to their feet, and Skrabz hits Anya with a Mic Check!!!
Ray Hudson: Mic Check!!!
Skrabz goes for the pin.
Ray Hudson: Is this it?!
Skrabz pulls Anya’s head up, breaking up his own pin.
Ray Hudson: Wait a damn minute.
Wavy Crockett: He ain’t done playing with her…
Skrabz smiles, holding Anya in his arms.
Ray Hudson: Just end the match, man!
Skrabz gets to his feet, bringing Anya up with him.
Wavy Crockett: He has something else in mind.
Skrabz scoop slams Anya to the ring mat.
Ray Hudson: That could’ve been it, folks. This could be a grave mistake by Mr. Skrabz.
The fans in the Magness Arena look confused.
Wavy Crockett: Man, I thought you said “Mr. Crabs” at first…
Anya slowly gets back up, holding her back.
Ray Hudson: No, but you’re bout as dumb as Patrick.
Wavy Crockett: Aight, Squidward….
Skrabz performs a reverse DDT on the Desert Rose.
Wavy Crockett: Shades of wrestling legend; Sting.
Skrabz yells to Denver that he will go ahead and end it now. He apologizes for not ending it a moment ago, smirking.
Ray Hudson: I think Skrabz has just really been enjoying the match.
There’s mixed reactions from the crowd.
Wavy Crockett: He better hurry up before Candi Bratton comes out again.
Ray Hudson: Well, she was banned from this match, along with Forge’s match, and Bullet’s match.
Wavy Crockett: Oh, they was serious bout that huh?
Skrabz gets Anya to her feet and performs his Snap DDT.
Ray Hudson: Snap DDT!!!
Skrabz signals for the end, as the crowd is still having mixed reactions.
Wavy Crockett: He bout to stop it, now.
Skrabz starts getting Anya to her feet.
Ray Hudson: Hopefully…
Out of nowhere, Anya jumps up and pulls Skrabz down into the Kimura Lock.
Ray Hudson: Kimura Lock!!!
The referee is checking on Skrabz.
Wavy Crockett: Watch him tap out!
Skrabz is trying to fight out.
Wavy Crockett: The Desert Rose about to win!
Skrabz gets to one knee, and is able to throw Anya off of him.
Ray Hudson: Skrabz gets free!!
Anya quickly gets to her feet, as Skrabz slowly gets up.
Wavy Crockett: I’m on the edge of my seat.
Anya runs at Skrabz with a big boot to the midsection, causing Skrabz to drop down to one knee.
Ray Hudson: Anya still pushing through!
Anya runs in the opposite direction, bouncing off the ropes as Skrabz fully stands up.
Ray Hudson: Anya may have the speed advantage here.
Wavy Crockett: You think?
Anya hits Skrabz with a clothesline.
Ray Hudson: Clothesline!
Skrabz quickly gets back to his feet, as Anya runs to another set of ropes.
Wavy Crockett: She moving. That’s for sure.
Anya bounces back with a second clothesline.
Ray Hudson: Another clothesline.
Skrabz stumbles back to his feet, as Anya runs to another set of ropes.
Wavy Crockett: She gon get a speeding ticket, Ray…
Anya bounces back with a spear!!
Ray Hudson: Spear!!!
The fans are cheering for the Desert Rose.
Ray Hudson: The Desert Rose is on fire!!!
Anya climbs out of the ring onto the apron, as the fans get to their feet.
Wavy Crockett: You know she fittin to do summin crazy…
As Skrabz gets to his feet, Anya jumps at him with Ra’s Wrath, into a pin attempt.
Wavy Crockett: It’s over!!!
Ray Hudson: Oh my!!!
The fans are all over the place in shock.
Wavy Crockett: I thought it was over, Ray!
Anya, however, wastes no time going to the top rope.
Ray Hudson: Anya is not playing, Wavy!!
Anya quickly jumps down onto Skrabz with a beautiful 450 splash.
Ray Hudson: 450!!!
Anya goes for the pin.
Ray Hudson: Skrabz kicks out again!!
Wavy Crockett: Damnitt boy!!
Anya signals for the end.
Wavy Crockett: It’s over, my G!!
Anya goes right back to the top rope, a little slower this time.
Ray Hudson: I can feel it calling in the air tonight…
The Desert Rose looks around the Magness Arena at the screaming fans with a smile on her face, as she breathes hard.
Wavy Crockett: It’s over!!!
Anya closes her eyes for a moment, before jumping off the top rope with The Curse of King Tut, as Skrabz shockingly pushes himself upwards and catches Anya as she comes down into a Mic Check!!!!!
Wavy Crockett: Oh shit!!!
Ray Hudson: Fuuuuuucccckkkkkkk!!!!!
The roof has blown off the building, as both superstars lay still for a moment.
Ray Hudson: Oh my God!!!! Did you see that?!!
Wavy Crockett: Mannnnn!!!
The fans begin chanting, “Holy Shit!”
Ray Hudson: Holy shit, indeed!
Skrabz throws an arm over Anya.
The Magness Arena is buzzing hard over that finish.
DING DING DING
“Next Hype” by Tempa T begins playing throughout the arena again, as Skrabz sits down in the middle of the ring, looking around at all the fans.
Byron Brown: And the winner of this match… Skrabz!!!
Skrabz looks over his shoulder, down at Anya, shaking his head with a smirk on his face.
Ray Hudson: What an ending…
Skrabz turns his head forward and his face becomes more serious as he looks to be in deep thought.
Wavy Crockett: I don’t like neither one of em, but RESPECT, for real…
Skrabz nods his head and gets to his feet.
Ray Hudson: That was epic…
Anya has now made her way to the corner of the ring, in sitting position.
Ray Hudson: I got goosebumps, Wavy.
Skrabz looks out at the Denver crowd and points at Anya. Anya just rolls her eyes.
Ray Hudson: What is this about?
Skrabz says something to her from across the ring that seems serious, before he looks back out at the fans and slowly claps for a moment. He then points at Anya again, before rolling out of the ring.
Ray Hudson: I believe that’s a show of respect….
Wavy Crockett: I’d say so.
Ray Hudson: We still got one more match, folks. We’ll be right back…
Skrabz mouths “respect” to Anya, as he walks backwards up the ramp. Anya looks on confused, as we fade to a commercial break.
No Disqualification Match
Samantha “The Titaness” Hamilton
“The Adorkable Angel” Azurine Vebbins
We our back from break, as “Problem” by Postmodern Jukebox begins playing throughout the arena. “The Adorkable Angel” Azurine Vebbins steps from behind the curtains with a solitary spotlight following her from the entrance ramp to the northern-facing ring apron.
Byron Brown: The following contest your main event of the evening! And it’s a No Disaqualification Match for one fall!!! Introducing first… weighing in at 115 pounds….. residing in Malibu, California……. “The Adorable Angel” Azurine Vebbins!!!
On the way to the ring, Azurine Vebbins pirouettes, skanks, and twirls like a whirling dervish down to the ring.
Ray Hudson: It’s time for our main event, Wavy!
The Denver crowd chants, “Shush my Tush”, loudly.
Ray Hudson: The fans chanting “Shush My Tush”. Azurine Vebbins cooking apron sold big time last week.
Unabashed she keeps dancing until getting onto the northern ringside apron and climbing through the middle and bottom ring ropes. Upon entering the ring, she dutifully awaits her opponent.
Wavy Crockett: Why all the women hate me, Ray?
“You’re Going Down” by Sick Puppies begins playing throughout the arena. As the actual lyrics begin playing, Samantha “The Titaness” Hamilton saunters down the ramp. A sense of determination and resolve can always be found in her eyes. Despite wearing a more stern and serious expression, she’s not one to ignore any fans or supporters. Every now and again, she gives a wave or slight smirk. More often than not, however, The Titaness sticks to her more serious and stoic look.
Byron Brown: And her opponent… weighing in at 145 pounds….. from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida……. Samantha “The Titaness” Hamilton!!!
When Sam finally gets in front of the ropes, she slips through the middle and top ropes.
DING DING DING
Senior Referee Michael Mack calls for the bell, and The Titaness quickly moves in for a clothesline, only to be caught with a knee strike by Azurine.
Ray Hudson: Azurine is ready for The Titaness!
Azurine delivers an open palm strike to Sam, followed by a bulldog.
Wavy Crockett: Damn, you ain’t lieing, Ray.
Azurine wastes no time in getting on top of Sam and putting her in a sleeper hold.
Wavy Crockett: She bout to put her to sleep already!
Azurine applies the body scissors while holding onto the sleeper hold, to really take control of Sam.
Ray Hudson: She sure is handling up on Ms. Hamilton.
It doesn’t work this early on, as Sam begins to get to all fours. However, Azurine let’s go and starts throwing elbow smashes into Sam’s ribs.
Ray Hudson: Azurine very impressive here at the start of this match…
Azurine gets to her feet and starts stomping on Sam.
Ray Hudson: Gotta wear The Titaness out early on.
As Azurine stomps on Sam, Sam still slowly gets back to all fours.
Wavy Crockett: We gotta admit, Samantha is a beast…
Azurine starts stomping harder, but Sam still continues to her feet.
Ray Hudson: Azurine is not stopping!
As Sam gets to her feet, Azurine takes her back down with a hip toss.
Ray Hudson: Look at her go!!
Sam slowly gets back to her feet, but Azurine takes her right back down with a scoop slam.
Wavy Crockett: Dat Azz!!!
Sam again slowly starts to get to her feet. Azurine looks frustrated.
Wavy Crockett: I’ma prolly get in trouble for saying that.
As Sam stands up, Azurine jumps up for the Frankensteiner, but as Azurine head swings close to the ring mat, Sam stays grounded, causing Azurine to just hang for a moment.
Ray Hudson: Uh oh…
Sam uses her strength to whip Azurine back up, and then powerbombs her hard to the ring mat.
Wavy Crockett: Well, it was great while it lasted…
Sam looks around the Magness Arena at the excited fans.
Ray Hudson: The Titaness is in control now
As Azurine starts to get onto all fours, Sam gets down and quickly hooks her into a crucifix.
Ray Hudson: A crucifix applied to Azurine Vebbins.
Azurine gets a foot on the bottom rope and the referee demands Sam release the hold.
Wavy Crockett: Good thing she was close to the ropes!
Sam quickly moves to a corner of the ring and prepares for Azurine to get to her feet to take her back down.
Ray Hudson: Sam is not about to let Azurine get back in control.
As Azurine gets to her feet, Sam runs at her for a spear, but Azurine side steps as Sam goes flying into the opposite corner of the ring, shoulder first into the ring post.
Ray Hudson: Ouch!!!
Azurine gets herself back together.
Wavy Crockett: Her shoulder could be broken!
Sam is now resting with her back against the turnbuckles in somewhat of a standing position, and Azurine delivers a standing dropkick to her face.
Ray Hudson: The Adorkable Angel handling up on The Titaness tonight.
In sitting position, Sam gets caught with a knee strike to the jaw by Azurine.
Ray Hudson: I feel like Azurine really did her homework for this one. She is refusing to have a repeat of last week.
Azurine talks a little trash to Sam, before getting her to her feet.
Wavy Crockett: Look, she’s getting cocky now, Ray.
Azurine Irish whips Sam to the opposite corner of the ring.
Ray Hudson: Could be her downfall.
The power causes Sam to bounce out of the corner a few steps forward, as Azurine comes running. But out of nowhere, Sam delivers a spear to Azurine.
Ray Hudson: Spear!!!
The fans are on their feet.
Wavy Crockett: I ain’t gon lie….my heart start beating faster when she hit them spears, Ray.
Azurine slowly gets to her feet.
Ray Hudson: It’s something to behold, for sure.
Sam begins delivering body kicks to Azurine.
Wavy Crockett: I think you jinxed Azurine, Ray.
Sam ends the series of body kicks with a superkick right to Azurine’s jaw.
Ray Hudson: Superkick!!
Sam reaches down and grabs Azurine by the neck. From that position, Sam lifts Azurine up into the air, before slamming her back down to the ring mat with a vicious chokeslam!!
Wavy Crockett: Geez…
Sam goes for the pin.
Sam gets to sitting position, and looks around.
Ray Hudson: Impressive chokeslam from The Titaness.
Sam rolls out of the ring and begins digging under.
Wavy Crockett: Uh oh, Ray…
The Titaness pulls out her signature sledgehammer as Denver goes nuts.
Ray Hudson: She’s got the sledgehammer!
Sam holds her sledgehammer high into the air, as the fans get louder. All of sudden, Azurine comes out of nowhere with a hard baseball slide to the side of Sam’s head.
Wavy Crockett: Oh shit!
Azurine pulls Sam to her feet and throws her into the outside barricade.
Ray Hudson: Boy, Azurine is not playing tonight, is she?
Azurine pulls Sam right back to her feet and throws her into the outside ring steps.
Wavy Crockett: She’s fucking The Titaness up…
Sam is in sitting position against the ring steps, and Azurine delivers a knee strike right to Sam’s jaw.
Ray Hudson: She’s staying on top of this match. That’s for sure…
Azurine pulls Sam to her feet yet again, this time rolling her back into the ring.
Ray Hudson: Pinfalls and submissions can only take place in the ring.
As Azurine climbs on to the ring apron, the lights dim. On the stage tron The Shieldmaiden’s motto appears; “Hell is empty and the Maidens are here.” and the opening of Marilyn Manson’s “This Is The New Shit” starts ramming it’s way onto the soundsystem. The Shieldmaiden’s logo pops up on the entrance screen.
“Babble babble bitch bitch
Rebel rebel party party
Sex sex sex and don’t forget the violence
Blah blah blah got your lovey-dovey sad-and-lonely
Stick your stupid slogan in
Everybody sing along”
Ray Hudson: What the hell is going on here?!
Wavy Crockett: The Shieldmaidens bout to tear some shit up!
Shieldmaidens’ President, Robi Jean “RJ” Mitchell, steps out first. To her immediate right stands her VP, Alex “Bullet” Carbajal. To her left stands her Sgt-At-Arms, Ophelia “Widow” Blaque. Fellow group members, Jackie “Bandit” Layton and Fianna Donnelly, take their places on either end of their officers, the five women all staring dead at the ring.
“Are you motherfuckers ready
For the new shit?
Stand up and admit
Tomorrow’s never coming
This is the new shit
Stand up and admit”
As the chorus rages over the speakers, RJ leads her group to the ring. They surround the ring; Bandit and Bullet going around the right while Widow and Fianna go to the left.
Ray Hudson: Well, Bullet is going head to head with The Titaness in a Ladder Match next week. And Widow and Bandit are facing Azurine and Anya to crown the first ever Tag Champs, next week.
All five women climb onto the ring apron, around the ring. Azurine stands in the middle of the ring, ready to fight her heart out.
Wavy Crockett: Is that why you think they’re out here, Ray?
The Titaness gets to her feet, realizing what is going on. She starts cussing, as all five Shieldmaidens climb through the ropes, into the ring.
Ray Hudson: I don’t know, but shit is about to hit the fan!!!
Sam quickly runs at Widow and spears her to the mat. Bullet and Fianna quickly jump on Sam and start swinging on her.
Wavy Crockett: They on that gangbang shit, Ray!! You know they from that 504!!
Azurine runs at RJ, and Bandit jumps at Azurine before she can get to the Shieldmaiden President. Bandit brings Azurine to the ground and begins pounding on her.
Ray Hudson: They’re just ruining our main event tonight…
Widow is back up, and joins Bandit in beating on Azurine Vebbins.
Ray Hudson: It’s a five on two assault!!
The crowd erupts as “Desert Rose” Anya comes running out.
Wavy Crockett: Here comes the Desert Rose; Azurine Vebbins’ tag team partner next week.
Anya slides into the ring as Bandit and Bullet immediately start stomping away at her. Widow still beating on Azurine, Fianna still beating on Sam.
Ray Hudson: These women stay in control!
“Big Bad Wolf” by In This Moment starts playing over the sound system, as the fans get even louder.
Wavy Crockett: Oh shit! Here comes my favorite again!!
Candi Bratton comes storming down the ramp cussing, as she throws her championship belt down, and starts digging under the ring.
Wavy Crockett: Candi bout to fuck all y’all up!!
RJ slides out of the ring, as Candi swings a chair out from under the ring, right into RJ’s face.
Ray Hudson: DAMN!!!
Candi pulls the chair back, and catches RJ in the skull with a second chair shot, knocking RJ on her bottom.
Wavy Crockett: I told you! I told you!
All of a sudden, Emily Falls comes running down the ramp and right past Candi, as she slides straight into the ring. Candi looks on, interested.
Ray Hudson: Now it’s five women against five women!!!
Wavy Crockett: I hardly think Emily Falls is quite a woman, Ray…
Emily starts throwing rights and lefts at Bandit.
Ray Hudson: Well, look at her go, Wavy!!
Fianna comes running at Emily, as Emily hits her with the Emily Fall.
Wavy Crockett: Shit…
Candi is standing outside smiling and nodding, before she finally rolls into the ring.
Ray Hudson: Things have gotten interesting!!!
Widow and Bullet jump Emily at the same time, and start stomping away at her.
Wavy Crockett: The Shieldmaidens ganging up on Emily now!
Candi wacks Widow in the back with the steel chair, as Widow falls to her knees before falling to her face.
Wavy Crockett: Don’t fuck with the champ!
Just as Bullet is about to come after Candi, Samantha “The Titaness” Hamilton spins her around and delivers the Wrath of the Titans to her PPV opponent.
Ray Hudson: Wrath of the Titans!!!
Candi, not here to choose sides, smashes the steel chair into Sam’s skull!!!
Ray Hudson: What the hell?! Wrong person, Candi!
Wavy Crockett: I think she did it on purpose, Ray…
Some boos can be heard from the crowd, as Candi raises an eyebrow, before RJ Mitchell attacks her from behind.
Ray Hudson: The Shieldmaiden President is back up!
RJ stomps away at Candi, until Anya and Azurine Vebbins double clothesline her out of the ring.
Ray Hudson: With the odds evened out, it’s becoming more chaotic!
RJ, Fianna, Widow, and Bandit are all on the outside together, slowly getting up, as the Desert Rose comes flying out of the ring at them with a suicide dive, taking them all back down!!!
Ray Hudson: Oh my God!!!
Emily Falls rolls out of the ring, struggling to bring Candi Bratton with her.
Wavy Crockett: This shit is crazy!
Azurine turns to look at The Titaness who is back on her feet.
Ray Hudson: This match is still going on, by the way.
Sam gets Bullet to her feet, and goes to Irish whip her out of the ring, but Bullet reverses it into Dios Es Una Bala!!!
Ray Hudson: Aw man!!!
Anya is back in the ring, and clotheslines Bullet over the top rope, flying out with her due to the momentum.
Wavy Crockett: Now it’s just Azurine and The Titaness in the ring, again.
Azurine looks all around her, shaking her head.
Ray Hudson: So much chaos here at ringside.
Sam is somehow slowly getting up already.
Wavy Crockett: It’s crazy!
Azurine gets Sam the rest of the way up, and performs The Pearly Gatekeeper!!!
Ray Hudson: Wait a minute!!
Azurine goes for the pin.
Wavy Crockett: No way…
DING DING DING
Wavy Crockett: It’s over!!!
Before Azurine’s theme music can start playing, all five Shieldmaidens are back in the ring, stomping away at Da Damsel In Dat Dress.
Ray Hudson: Will the just leave?!
The fans are booing loudly.
Emily Falls: Excuse me! Helllooooo!!! Down here!!
The camera turns to show Emily Falls holding a mic.
Emily Falls: I got a challenge to make…
Suddenly, the lights go out as the arena is filled with green light, as the sounds of Muse’s “Thought Contagion” begin to play.
Ray Hudson: Well, Emily was about to say something…
The screen lights up with the logo for the “Universal Superstar” Anaquin Adams. The fans go nuts.
Ray Hudson: Wait a damn minute! Could it really be?!
The music plays for a short time before a figure finally steps through the curtain and Anaquin Adams begins to make her way down the aisle.
Ray Hudson: That’s “Universal Superstar” Anaquin Adams!!!
Anaquin is dressed in long leather pants, a black “Muse” t-shirt and wearing a helmet as her long green hair flows behind her. Her black boots take step after step until she reaches the ring and she takes a step at a time until she enters the ring, placing her hand on her head to hold her helmet in place.
Wavy Crockett: What is she doing on our show?
Anaquin grins as she walks to each side of the ring, raising her hand, as she finally is handed a microphone and the lights come on.
“Universal Superstar” Anaquin Adams: Hello, Mile High Wrestling!
The Shieldmaidens look on, confused.
“Universal Superstar” Anaquin Adams: For those who may not be familiar, my name is Anaquin Adams, Universal Superstar. Just so you are aware, that isn’t a self-imposed nickname that I have created but an occupation bestowed upon me by the gods. They have also just communicated with me a new Challenge of the Gods.
Anaquin smiles, looking directly into Robi Jean Mitchell’s eyes.
“Universal Superstar” Anaquin Adams: Robi Mitchell – You should feel blessed to have been chosen by the gods as one of the eleven stars that make up the constellation of Taurus. I understand that the Phoenix of Mile High Wrestling is rising next week, and I hereby challenge you for that event, as part of my Challenge of the Gods, to a match. One on one. You and the Universal Superstar, as the Phoenix rises. What do you say?
RJ points at Anaquin and looks at the other Maidens, mouthing, “Is she serious right now?”.
Ray Hudson: This would be huge…
The other Maidens shrug and kind of laugh mockingly at the Universal Superstar. Only to have RJ turn back to Anaquin and tilt her head slightly. Anaquin offers her hand to the Shieldmaiden.
Wavy Crockett: I don’t think it’s gonna happen like that…
Robi looks down at the offered hand and then back up to Anaquin, as Bullet hands her a mic.
Robi Jean Mitchell: Challenge Accepted.
Instead of shaking Anaquin’s hand, RJ rears back and headbutts her in the face.
Wavy Crockett: Oh shit!
Before the other Maidens could move in, she shook her head to stay them, as she simply steps out of the ring with the others in tow.
Ray Hudson: Well, at least they’re finally leaving.
A staggered Anaquin reaches up to touch her forehead where a bit of blood has started to flow and just grins. Anaquin picks a microphone back up.
“Universal Superstar” Anaquin Adams: May the god Eleos have mercy on your soul.
Muse’s “Thought Contagion” begins to play again, and Anaquin once again acknowledges the fans as everyone else just looks into the ring at the Universal Superstar, in confusion.
Ray Hudson: What a crazy night it has been! We’ll be right here next week on The SE Network, with another episode of Mile High Wrestling. And then live on Pay-Per View will be The Rise In Phoenix. See you next week, folks!!
The camera shows Emily Falls looking on mad, with tears in her eyes, as this episode of Mile High Wrestling fades to black.
