(CUEUP: ‘Nowhere Kids’ by Smile Empty Soul. The lights in the arena slowly turn a deep shade of blue as the music hits. "In the land of dirt and plaster lies an army of a thousand nowhere kids losing ground and falling faster into a life that no one should have to live.." As the chorus begins to play, McCormick bursts through the curtains at a full sprint and runs down the ramp... "We are the people that you hate / We are the bastards that you created a generation with no place a generation of all your sons and daughters…" McCormick hits the ring and slides in, his momentum carrying him almost to the center. He hits one of the corners, standing on the second turnbuckle and begins to bang his head to the music, his hair going everywhere. He finally drops off the turnbuckle and leans in the corner with his arms crossed, a cocky grin on his face.)
JIVE: "Look at that grin! I can’t tell if he’s trying to play mindgames w/ Red Ejac.. err Devastator, or he’s really that cocky!"
JACOBS: "Introducing first … MAKING HIS DEBUT here tonight …. He stands five foot eleven … and weighs in at 211 pounds … hailing from SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA ….. he is ….. DYLAN McCORMICK!"
GHEORGHE: "McCormick standing now waiting for Devastator to make his entrance … and he looks pumped, Nick!"
JACOBS: "And his opponent ….. standing six foot ten and weighing 310 pounds….."
(CUEUP: A thunder sounds goes through the arena. All of the lights go out. After a couple of seconds, growling is heard as The Psycho theme starts playing on the PA system. Red Devastator makes his way down the rampway. He is wearing a torn up dark green pants and a matching tank top. It is torn at a couple of places as well. His long dark red hair is covering his face, and a huge scar can be seen stretching down his left arm. The fans give him a mixed reaction mostly because they are freaked out by his looks. Devastator makes his way down the ramp as more growling and screaming is mixed up with the psycho theme. He enters the ring, and rises his arms half way up as the crowd booes him some more.)
GHEORGHE: "Look at that monster!"
JACOBS: "He hails from WASHINGTON DC ……….. HE IS THE RED DEVASTATOR!"
(SFX: Bell rings.)
(SFX: Crowd boos as Juliet Marceau is walking down to ringside.)
JIVE: "MARCEAU is HERE!"
GHEORGHE: "It looks like we’re going to have a special guest commentator for the opening match, Nick."
MARCEAU: "Hello there, guys."
JIVE: "You’re looking awfully great tonight, Juliet."
MARCEAU: "Why thank you."
GHEORGHE: "So, what are the chances we can get you to tell us your surprise …"
MARCEAU: "What are the chances you’ll keep your job after tonight?"
JIVE: "I LOVE WOMEN WITH POWER!"
GHEORGHE: "They lockup. Devastator sends McCormick to the corner of the ring…. Red Devastator comes in … but McCormick quickly swaps positions and now Devastator is in the corner! AND NOW McCORMICK SLAPS RED DEVASTATOR!. Devastator rakes the face of Dylan McCormick in attempt to make a come back .. McCormick sent to the ropes ….. on his way back … AND DYLAN McCORMICK WITH A FLYING KARATE CHOP RIGHT INTO THE SIDE OF RED DEVASTATOR’s NECK!"
JIVE: "Flying karate chop! McCormick is trying to get this match at a quicker tempo where he’ll have the upper hand."
MARCEAU: "I think both these men exude the types of personalities that we need here in New ERA … confidence … and pure unadulterated determination!"
GHEORGHE: "McCormick now working over the leg of the big man … and Devastator grabs ahold of McCormick’s head and tosses him to the mat! McCormick quickly back up and at the leg again …. AND DEVASTATOR PICKS HIM UP BY THE THROAT! Devastator nails Dylan McCormick with A BIIIIIIIIIIG belly-to-back suplex. Devastator on his feet …. McCormick getting to his feet now ... Devastator throws McCormick into the ropes, McCormick comes back, rolls on the ground, comes back up ducking the Devastator clothesline attempt …. Agains the other ropes …. AND NAILS RED DEVASTATOR WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK! Devastator is reeling!!!"
JIVE: "I would not want to get on Devastator’s bad side …. McCormick should hope to keep this on his side .. or else there may be hell to pay!"
GHEORGHE: "McCormick now in the corner …. And he comes out …. AND HE HITS A HANDSPRING MOONSAULT ONTO RED DEVASTATOR!!! DEVASTATOR FALLS …. ONE ………. And Red Devastator kicks out easily!"
MARCEAU: "This is the future of New ERA …"
JIVE: "If McCormick keeps using moves like that handspring moonsault he could win the match!"
GHEORGHE: "Both men stand up now …. Devastator with an elbowsmash in the face of McCormick .. and McCormick is walking around holding his jaw …. And now he gets nailed with a double axhandle chop from Devastator! McCormick is back on his feet …. And Red Devastator with some vicious jabs into the face of McCormick and the referee is checking to see if those are closed fists or not."
JIVE: "Of course they’re closed fists! Devastator has a history of having to defend himself …. And closed fists were always his best friends."
GHEORGHE: "Devastator sends McCormick into the ropes … McCormick on the way back …. BIG BACK BODY DROP …. BUT McCORMICK FLIPS AND LANDS ON HIS FEET!!! Red Devastator turns around … AND McCORMICK TRIES TO LIFT DEVASTATOR UP!"
MARCEAU: "I don’t think all the confidence in the world could help McCormick there."
GHEORGHE: "McCormick gives up as Devastator looks at him with a sly smile …. McCormick against the ropes … AND A HIGH CROSS BODY ATTEMPT …. BUT DEVASTATOR IS HOLDING ON TO HIM!! Red Devastator walks around …. AND SQUASHES McCORMICK…"
JIVE: "And I think that just snapped his momentum two fold."
GHEORGHE: "Devastator is up now … and he is stomping on Dylan McCormick … Devastator bringing McCormick to his feet … and now he kicks the back of the leg! Red Devastator picks up Dylan McCormick …. AND HE TOSSES HIM HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING!"
MARCEAU: "Maybe .. I should enlist the help of Devastator for some of my own projects…."
GHEORGHE: "McCormick back to the mat … and Devastator with a pin …. ONE ……. TWO .. no, Dylan McCormick with the kickout right before two."
MARCEAU: "He should have just stayed on the attack."
GHEORGHE: "Devastator now grabs McCormick .. and he locks on an arm wrench… and all McCormick can do is try to push the jaw of Devastator in hopes that he could put strain on his neck to release the hold."
JIVE: "But Red Devastator is hemophobic … he’s impervious to pain!"
MARCEAU: "Ha, its not hemophobic, Nick.."
GHEORGHE: "Red Devastator does suffer, or I guess doesn’t suffer would be more appropriate, from congenital analgesia … so I don’t think McCormick is going to get far … but Devastator releases the hold anyway. Devastator propping McCormick up …. And he brings him down to the mat w/ a clothesline!"
MARCEAU: "Follows up with a knee drop.."
GHEORGHE: "Devastator kicking McCormick on the ground … and now he picks him up … Devastator with a powerslam …. AND HE DROPS McCORMICK ON THE TURNBUCKLE!!!"
JIVE: "He calls that Snake Eyes …"
GHEORGHE: "Red Devastator is walking around the ring … and he is waiting for Dylan McCormick to get to his feet … McCormick is up and resting in the corner … AND RED DEVASTATOR IS BECKONING HIM TO COME AT HIM!"
MARCEAU: "What balls."
GHEORGHE: "McCormick sees this … AND HE CHARGES AT HIM! Devastator with a … NO! McCormick slid right through his legs!!! McCormick up …. HE GRABS THE HEAD OF DEVASTATOR AND PLANTS HIM TO THE MAT WITH A DDT!!! AND NOW McCORMICK WITH AN EARRINGER!"

GHEORGHE: "FLYING SIDE KICK now by McCormick …. And now DYLAN McCORMICK IS HEADING UP TOP!!! McCormick measuring …… FROG SPLASH ONTO RED DEVASTATOR!!!! McCormick with the cover ….. ONE …….. TWO ……. KICKOUT BY DEVASTATOR!"
MARCEAU: "How do you beat a beast that doesn’t feel pain?"
JIVE: "I don’t know."
GHEORGHE: "McCormick now … comes from behind and bulldogs Red Devastator! McCormick back to his feet….. Devastator sitting up …. AND McCORMICK WITH A ROLLING NECK SNAP ON DEVASTATOR!"
MARCEAU: "Shades of a late great right there…"
GHEORGHE: "McCormick in the face of Red Devastator … AND HE SLAPS HIM AGAIN IN THE FACE!"
JIVE: "AND THAT WOKE THE BIG MAN UP!"
GHEORGHE: "Devastator pushes McCormick into the corner …. AND NOW HE HITS HIM WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! McCormick tries to duck underneath the arm of Devastator…. BUT DEVASTATOR CATCHES HIM! RED DEVASTATOR PICKS HIM UP AND NAILS A RUNNING POWERSLAM!"
GHEORGHE: "Devastator stands up … and he brings McCormick to his feet … snaps him over … and now he applies a chinlock on Dylan McCormick."
MARCEAU: "The big man has better plans!"
GHEORGHE: "Devastator now lying McCormick on the mat …. Bounces off the ropes … AND COMES DOWN WITH A FIST DROP! BUT McCORMICK MOVES!!!"
JIVE: "There might as well be a hole in the mat now!"
GHEORGHE: "Devastator getting to his feet …. Dylan McCormick uses the ropes to get to his feet … AND McCORMICK WITH A DROPKICK TO THE KNEE OF DEVASTATOR! McCORMICK WITH ANOTHER DROPKICK AND DEVASTATOR GOES DOWN TO ONE KNEE!"
MARCEAU: "Dylan’s confidence seems to carry him out of sticky situations!"
GHEORGHE: "McCormick now ….. RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE and Devastator GOES TO THE MAT! McCormick drops the leg! Covers ….. ONE ……… TWO ……… AND DEVASTATOR TOSSES HIM OFF WITH EASE!"
JIVE: "McCormick could have hit the cage that’s in the rafters!"
GHEORGHE: "McCormick now hits Devastator square in the jaw with the back of his elbow… AND NOW McCORMICK WITH SOME CLOSED FISTS AS DEVASTATOR IS GETTING UP! McCormick knowing that he can’t keep the big man down goes against the ropes ….. SPINNING LEG LARIA… NO! Devastator catches the leg of McCormick! DEVASTATOR DRIVES McCORMICK’s KNEE INTO THE MAT!"
JIVE: "Red Devastator is on the mark here tonight … and he is just waiting for McCormick to run out of energy."
GHEORGHE: "Devastator now sitting on top of Dylan McCormick …. AND HE IS LYING RIGHTS AND LEFTS INTO THE HEAD …… as McCormick is trying to block his face …. Devastator relents a little … AND HITS HIM IN THE FACE WITH A FOREARM! Devastator gets to his feet … and he is waiting for Dylan McCormick to get up."
MARCEAU: "Now .. knowing McCormick is quick .. and seeing as he’s come from behind before .. I don’t think its wise for Devastator to be giving him this breather."
GHEORGHE: "McCormick is up … Red Devastator comes at him …. McCormick with a kick ….. BUT DEVASTATOR CATCHES HIS FOOT! WAIT! McCORMICK WITH AN ENZIGURI TO THE FACE OF DEVASTATOR! Red Devastator is rocking ….. McCORMICK AGAINST THE ROPES ……… AND HE HITS DEVASTATOR WITH A FLYING CROSS BODY AND THEY BOTH GO TUMBLING OVER THE TOP ROPE!"
JIVE: "Devastator can’t feel pain.. this is NOT where McCormick wants to be."
GHEORGHE: "McCormick is up .. and he grabs a steel chair!!! McCORMICK SWINGS AND HITS RED DEVASTATOR IN THE HEAD WITH A STEEL CHAIR …. AND DEVASTATOR JUST STARES AT HIM BLANKLY!!!"
JIVE: "I TOLD YOU HE’s A MONSTER!"
MARCEAU: "McCormick is taking it to Devastator…"
GHEORGHE: "McCormick now drops the chair … AND HE POKES RED DEVASTATOR RIGHT IN THE EYES!!! Devastator is holding his face …. And McCORMICK NOW WITH A REVERSE NECKBREAKER!!! ON THE CONCRETE FLOOR!"
MARCEAU: "McCormick truly is going to try to knock him out physically!"
GHEORGHE: "McCormick now trying to get the big man up .. and he’s having a hell of a time … Devastator isn’t really aware I don’t think as he gets to his feet … and McCormick rolls him into the ring …. McCormick tries to send Red Devastator into the corner …. AND HE DOES! McCormick quickly follows in …. AND HE IS ON TOP OF DEVASTATOR NAILING HIM WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS!"
CROWD: "ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT…."
JIVE: "AND DEVASTATOR THROWS McCORMICK OVER HIM TO THE ARENA FLOOR!!"
GHEORGHE: "NO!!! McCormick used his body weight to some how manuever onto the ring aprong!!! McCORMICK IS NOW PERCHED ON THE TOP ROPE …. Red Devastator turns around ……..
