SEASON 2: PrimeTime
(At the announcing position, we find Natalie Newman and Jason Tripp back and ready to call more of the PrimeTime action.)
NEWMAN: "It's been a wild night at PrimeTime, to say the least, and we're rolling on ahead to our New ERA Championship match
TRIPP: "Right you are, Natalie. This isn't a glitch, and you aren't seeing an early replay of the show, fans. We are going to have a SECOND match between Mister Entertainment and Fanatic
for the New ERA Championship!"
NEWMAN: "Of course, this was due to the events of earlier tonight, as Mister Entertainment and Fanatic had a heated confrontation, which resulted in Marcus LaRoque calling for a start to the New ERA Championship match!"
TRIPP: "Yes, thanks to the quick thinking of Larry Tact, who pointed out the match was not contractually obligated to be the Main Event."
NEWMAN: "Maybe so, Jason, but it seems like one of the more controversial decisions I've seen in New ERA of Wrestling. And certainly it paid off for Fanatic, who is now our New ERA Champion!"
TRIPP: "Now the question is
how long will his reign last??"
NEWMAN: "Typically that wouldn't be a question we need to ask the same night as the new Champion's victory
but Fanatic will be tested right away, as Mister Entertainment has invoked his remaining banked title shot
and that match is scheduled for tonight!!"
TRIPP: "The former New ERA Champion used his first banked shot at the beginning of this season
and it worked out to perfection, as he defeated Shawn Hart to become New ERA Champion. Now he's trying to make it two-for-two, as he challenges Fanatic for the title!"
NEWMAN: "And what of the mindset of the Champion? Judging by Larry Tact's reaction in President LaRoque's office, I don't think he expected Mister Entertainment to pull the card he did. If Fanatic is as flustered, I don't think he's going to get through the night as New ERA Champion, Jason."
TRIPP: "I don't think 'flustered' is something I've ever seen in the 'Elite Enigma,' though. He seems to always be up for the match at hand. We've seen Fanatic rise to the top by showing up to every match he's been given, so far
and he did just beat Mister Entertainment for the title
NEWMAN: "That's true, too. Do you think Mister Entertainment may have any reservations, right now?"
TRIPP: "You know, I do, Natalie. Everything we've seen out of Mister Entertainment has also not matched the definition of 'flustered.' I mean, the guy has been UNDEFEATED up until tonight
he entered BattleBRAWL 3 at the #2 slot, and survived to win the whole shebang! But tonight, we did see him flustered
and angrier than I've ever seen him
after his loss to Fanatic. I think that may have chipped the smooth surface of the former Champion, and he may have made a rash decision to use the banked title shot."
NEWMAN: "It may be a mistake that costs Mister Entertainment dearly, because if he loses this Championship rematch, who knows what effect it would have on him! Losing twice in one night, to the Champion
and there's no guarantee someone will win another three matches to bank another title shot. A lot on the line for Mister Entertainment."
TRIPP: "He may have to wait until BattleBRAWL 4!!!"
NEWMAN: "And it goes without saying, a lot on the line for the 'Elite Enigma.' How often can a wrestler score two wins in one night, much less consecutive wins against the same opponent? No easy task ahead for our New ERA Champion, and-- wait a minute, I'm getting word there's something going on in the back
My Shot, My Terms
(We cut backstage, and Mister Entertainment standing with his hands on his hips, looking down at something smug satisfaction. The camera zooms out to show Larry Tact, splayed out on the ground, and handcuffed to a metal system of pipes! Tact begins to stir and looks up, dazed. Mister Entertainment dangles keys in front of Tact's face, but when Larry Tact attempts to grab them with his free hand, Mister Entertainment snatches them away.)
ENTERTAINMENT: "Pathetic. It's no wonder ya KILLED NEW ERA!! But not tonight. Tonight, NO THANKS ta Marcus LaRoque
but thanks ta ME
NEW ERA WILL SURVIVE!!"
(He then dangles the keys again, leaving them just out of Tact's reach on a steel chair, and violently kicks Tact in the head, sending him back down to the floor. The camera follows Mister Enterainment down the corridor, as he walks with a purpose.)
NEWMAN: I can't believe it!! Mister Entertainment has HANDCUFFED Larry Tact backstage, with the Championship match just minutes away!!"
TRIPP: "I don't think it's right, but that is a SMART MOVE by Mister Entertainment. He's effectively eliminated half of the Tact Legacy, and any support Fanatic may have out here!"
NEWMAN: "I think he's heading out here now, ready to get things started!"
(Mister Entertainment turns a corner, and stops. We find Fanatic standing with his back to the former Champion, surrounded by lights as Sam Baxter seems to be interviewing him just behind the curtain to the arena.)
BAXTER: "Just one more question before we let you make your final preparations for the Championship match, Fanatic. And thank you for giving us this impromptu interview for the New ERA of Wrestling website
FANATIC: "Not a problem, Sam
(Fanatic doesn't hear Sam's final question as Mister Entertainment hits him flush in the back!)
TRIPP: "MISTER ENTERTAINMENT GETTING THE JUMP ON FANATIC!!"
NEWMAN: "Fans, we were expecting to have Mister Entertainment come out here for the introductions, but it looks like he made a detour! The challenger finds the New ERA Champion, and has struck before the match has begun! Mister Entertainment grabs Fanatic from behind
he RUNS Fanatic into the lighting equipment! Fanatic is down and Mister Entertainment is fired up here!"
TRIPP: "This doesn't look good for our New ERA Champion. He's already been through a match tonight, and now this
NEWMAN: "Yes, and now Mister Entertainment lifts Fanatic
SNAP SUPLEX ONTO THE FLOOR!!"
TRIPP: "That won't help the back of Fanatic, which was already worked on in their first match!"
NEWMAN: "The challenger picks up Fanatic and leads him down the corridor, shoving Sam Baxter out of the way
they aren't going out here, Jason
it looks like Mister Entertainment wants to continue the punishment backstage!"
TRIPP: "You can see how effective it is
he wants to soften Fanatic as much as possible
but where are they going??"
(Mister Entertainment lays in a knee to the stomach of Fanatic, proceeding through the halls of the DCU Center. He then throws Fanatic against some stair railing.)
NEWMAN: "Fanatic's head bounces off the rails
and Mister Entertainment sends him into the stairs with a dropkick! Our courageous cameraman manages to keep on top of things, as Fanatic is crawling up the stairs, trying to put some distance between himself and Mister Entertainment
TRIPP: "It looks like they're heading to the upper level of the Center, and I don't blame Fanatic here. He needs some space to stave off this surprise attack, and time to think of a counter!"
NEWMAN: "As Mister Entertainment follows him up, watching Fanatic as if he's just TOYING with the New ERA Champion!"
(Mister Entertainment allows Fanatic to go up the steps, following behind.)
ENTERTAINMENT: "Ya NEVER were fit ta be New ERA Champion! IT WAS A FLUKE!!"
NEWMAN: "Fanatic reaches the top of the stairs
but staggers back down after Mister Entertainment hit's a Roundhouse kick to the back! The challenger still all over the Champion, and apparently enforcing that his loss earlier was nothing more than a fluke!"
TRIPP: "Yes, and with Mister Entertainment hawking him, it doesn't look like Fanatic will disprove that."
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment
OH MY! Fanatic trips Mister Entertainment as he came closer
ENZIGURI KICK FROM NOWHERE sends Mister Entertainment back into the railing!"
TRIPP: "It seems Fanatic hasn't forgotten what worked for him, either."
NEWMAN: "Right you are, and Fanatic now back up to his feet .. grabbing Mister Entertainment and driving a knee to the head of the challenger! Mister Entertainment shoves Fanatic off .. shakes his head to clear the cobwebs
Flying forearm by Fanatic!"
TRIPP: "It seems like Fanatic has turned the tables, keeping on Mister Entertainment now."
NEWMAN: "Fanatic with a fierce palm strike, rocking back the head of Mister Entertainment! He grabs the challenger in a headlock, leading him down the hallway
no! Mister Entertainment SHOVES Fanatic off
straight into a closed door! Mister Entertainment runs full speed
BOTH MEN SLAM THROUGH THE DOORS!!"
TRIPP: "Where are they going now??"
NEWMAN: "We're about to find out, as the cameraman gets inside
it's one of the luxury boxes!"
TRIPP: "Hey, you can see the arena right there through the glass!"
(Mister Entertainment gets up and sees Security on the way.)
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment has SHUT THE DOOR! He's locked himself and Fanatic in the luxury box!"
TRIPP: "Well that's no use
there's only one way out!"
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment turns and finds Fanatic waiting with a right hand! And another! An Irish Whip sends Mister Entertainment into one of the tables
he turns and is BENT BACKWARDS WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE!!"
TRIPP: "Stiff knee by Fanatic, and Mister Entertainment had nowhere to go!"
NEWMAN: "The Champion gets on the table and pulls Mister Entertainment up
short kick to the thigh of Mister Entertainment
Mister Entertainment buckles to his knees with the third!"
TRIPP: "Both of these men have martial arts training, so you know those kicks sting just a little more!"
NEWMAN: "Now Fanatic setting Mister Entertainment in Powerbomb position! Could he be going for the Meteor Shot off the table?? No! Mister Entertainment with a Back Body drop and Fanatic CRASHES to the floor!"
TRIPP: "These two clearly don't care if it's official or not
they just want to HURT the other!"
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment was trying to get the jump on Fanatic, but the New ERA Champion had other ideas! The challenger back in control, though
Mister Entertainment with a CHOP
Another knife-edge chop, and Fanatic is grabbing his chest and staggering away
Mister Entertainment CHOPS the back of Fanatic!"
TRIPP: "I doubt that's any better!"
NEWMAN: "The challenger grabs the Champion from behind
Atomic Drop! Fanatic leans over the table
TRIPP: "Mister Entertainment staying on the back here, but what does it all mean if they aren't in the ring?"
NEWMAN: "I think Mister Entertainment may have heard you, Jason, as he stares at the arena. Mister Entertainment clubs Fanatic over the back again
picks him up and SLAMS him face-first into the glass! Fanatic's face
is being smashed against the luxury box
ENTERTAINMENT: "DO YA ALL SEE?! THIS IS A CANCER FER NEW ERA! YOU ALL FEED INTO THIS CANCER CRAZE
BUT TIME TA REMOVE IT!!"
(The crowd, hearing this from the speakers near the big screen, jeer Mister Entertainment and start pelting the luxury box glass with garbage.)
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment continues on his verbal tirade
and slams Fanatic back-first against the glass
a THIRD time now
MY LORD!! THE GLASS CRACKED FROM THE FORCE!!"
TRIPP: "Fanatic may not be able to WALK to the ring!"
NEWMAN: "I'm sure Mister Entertainment would carry him, so he could make the pinfall! Now the challenger picks up the Champion on his shoulder
TRIPP: "HE'LL RUN FANATIC RIGHT THROUGH!!!"
NEWMAN: "HE RUNS AND
FANATIC BREAKS LOOSE AND SHOVES MISTER ENTERTAINMENT HEAD-FIRST THROUGH THE GLASS!! MY LORD!!"
TRIPP: "It looks like Mister Entertainment is finally entering the arena!"
NEWMAN: "Yes, we thought he'd be heading there after trapping Larry Tact backstage in handcuffs
but instead he started what has been a brawl throughout the DCU Center!"
TRIPP: "And now Fanatic is looking to take things to the arena itself
in his own way!"
NEWMAN: "Right you are, Jason
and, fortunately, fans in the seats right under the luxury box cleared away so they could get a better view
otherwise we'd be in real trouble!"
TRIPP: "Mister Entertainment would have been in very serious trouble if he had gone out of that luxury box! It's still a good ten feet above those seats!"
NEWMAN: "I think he's already in enough trouble, going through the glass, Jason! The Champion pulls Mister Entertainment back by the ponytail
grabs him by both arms
NO! FANATIC RUNS AND HEAVES MISTER ENTERTAINMENT OUT OF THE BOX!!!"
TRIPP: "NO! MISTER ENTERTAINMENT HUNG ONTO THE EDGE OF THE WINDOWSILL!!"
NEWMAN: "You're right! Somehow, the challenger managed to hang on BY THE FINGERNAILS
and drops down onto the seats
or should I say, crumples!"
TRIPP: "Mister Entertainment caught a serious break there."
NEWMAN: "If he had flown out of the window, I don't think he'd be in any condition to get in the ring, that's for sure. But it looks like he's stirring, as this crowd is going absolutely crazy at what they're witnessing tonight!"
TRIPP: "I'm surprised we can even hear out here, Natalie!"
NEWMAN: "Speak for yourself! I'm just hoping we're coming through to the broadcast
now Mister Entertainment pulls himself up to his feet
NO! FANATIC NO!!!"
(Fanatic watches Mister Entertainment rising from the former window. As Mister Entertainment gets up, Fanatic backs up himself
and the fans EXPLODE as he FLIES OUT the window like a MISSILE!!)
TRIPP: "FANATIC WAS WAITING!"
NEWMAN: "SUICIDE PLANCHA OUT OF THE LUXURY BOX
LITERALLY!! FANATIC JUST PUT HIS LIFE ON THE LINE AND WIPED OUT MISTER ENTERTAINMENT!!!"
TRIPP: "It's safe to say I've NEVER wanted to hurt someone as badly as these two do
not even Nick Jive!"
NEWMAN: "Folks, words do not describe the lengths these two are going to, in order to inflict pain on the other! Fanatic and Mister Entertainment are down in the aisle
they may kill each other before getting to the ring!"
(The replay of Fanatic vaulting from the luxury box plays on the bigscreen.)
CROWD: "HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!"
TRIPP: "Like you said, Natalie
that was LITERALLY a Suicide dive!"
NEWMAN: "I don't think there's any question Fanatic is ready to do ANYTHING to hold onto the New ERA Championship tonight
but is the 'Elite Enigma' going too far?"
TRIPP: "Natalie, I think we may have underestimated the limits of BOTH these men, as competitors."
(A few members of Security are now looking out the window, shocked at what they find outside the shattered remains of the window. Meanwhile, both men begin to stir.)
TRIPP: "Looks like Security finally got through the lock!"
NEWMAN: "Too little, too late, though
as it seems both men are stirring on the ground. Fanatic is up first, but slowly and favoring his back
TRIPP: "He may be reconsidering that last choice of attack
NEWMAN: "Too true, Jason
then again, the New ERA Champion is back on his feet and the fans are firing him up!"
TRIPP: "It's the power of the Craze!"
NEWMAN: "It's real guts, that's for sure. The guy must be made of rubber to even be standing
and he begins to pick up Mister Entertainment from the concrete
and hit's that Jumping Spinning uppercut he calls the Slice! Mister Entertainment is sent tumbling down the steps in the aisle!"
TRIPP: "And one level closer to ringside
I bet President LaRoque is thrilled to see that!"
NEWMAN: "Somehow I think he's already blown a gasket or two, tonight. Mister Entertainment is being given his comeuppance by some fans, as Fanatic looks down at him from the top of the steps
TRIPP: "He couldn't be planning
NEWMAN: "Oh no
Fanatic is high risk, high rewards, but this is ridiculous!"
TRIPP: "Seems to be working!"
(Fanatic points to the crowd, then at Mister Entertainment, and the crowd again, who ERUPT!)
NEWMAN: "It looks like Fanatic is doing his own polling of the New ERA fans
now he measures Mister Entertainment, who is finding his feet
FANATIC FLIES OFF THE STEPS WITH A CROSS BODY BLOCK!!!"
NEWMAN: "MISTER ENTERTAINMENT WITH A DROPKICK! FANATIC CRASHES ONTO THE CONCRETE!!"
TRIPP: "The most entertaining man in New ERA with a picture-perfect counter!"
NEWMAN: "I would call it a desperation counter, Jason
that could have been the end of Mister Entertainment's chances! Instead he retrieves Fanatic from the ground
Irish Whip sends the Champion into the ringside railing! Mister Entertainment now mouthing off to some fans as he has control
TRIPP: "It looks like the referee is checking on if Fanatic is
well, able to compete."
NEWMAN: "No choice, as Mister Entertainment signed off on his banked title shot. I'd say he's faring well
but at the moment, this could be anyone's match
TRIPP: "Yes, once it starts!"
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment dumps Fanatic over the railing and climbs over himself, now
and uses a boot to CHOKE Fanatic against the railing!"
TRIPP: "Genius! The referee can't put a count in, can he??"
NEWMAN: "Not until the match officially begins, there's nothing he can do! Mister Entertainment finally relieves the pressure
only to lay in kicks to the back of Fanatic! The referee telling Mister Entertainment to take it into the ring
ENTERTAINMENT: "MY TITLE SHOT!! MY TERMS!!"
TRIPP: "He's got a point there!"
NEWMAN: "As Mister Entertainment works over the back of Fanatic, yes, he is using his final banked title shot tonight
but this just doesn't seem fair to Fanatic
TRIPP: "But Larry Tact did manipulate the rules to get their first match bumped up, didn't he?"
NEWMAN: "The weeks leading up to PrimeTime have been a real back-and-forth game of one-upsmanship between the Tact Legacy and Mister Entertainment
and tonight has been a continuation of that! Now Mister Entertainment bringing Fanatic towards the ring
and rams Fanatic's back against the apron! Now the challenger rolls the Champion in
and finally enters himself!"
(SFX: Bell rings. The lineup for the match finally comes on screen.)
New ERA Championship
Mr. Entertainment vs. Fanatic (c)
TRIPP: "A bit later than scheduled
but we have our second New ERA Championship match of the night!"
NEWMAN: "No kidding, although technically it wasn't scheduled at all. Regardless, Mister Entertainment going right to a corner
the most entertaining man in New ERA waits on the 'Elite Enigma' to get up
and hits a Somersault Neckbreaker on the Champion! And that may do it, as Mister Entertainment goes for the pinfall!
NO!!! Fanatic kicks out!!"
TRIPP: "He got the shoulder up, but that's enough to keep the match going."
NEWMAN: "I wasn't sure if it would go more than one pinfall, considering all that's happened. Mister Entertainment is hassling the referee about the count, but our official assures him it wasn't three. Mister Entertainment brings Fanatic to his feet
sends him into the ropes
Fanatic ducks a forearm! The Champion off the ropes again
Mister Entertainment turns
Hurricanrana by Fanatic! No! The challenger somehow counters into a Swinging Backbreaker!"
TRIPP: "That type of counter takes some real quick thinking
not many could pull it off, but Mister Entertainment shows his wrestling prowess there."
NEWMAN: "Despite his namesake, he is without doubt one of the best wrestlers in New ERA, and showed it there
now applying a Backbreaker stretch on Fanatic!"
TRIPP: "Really working the back of Fanatic
it could only have recovered so far between matches."
NEWMAN: "If at all
Fanatic is looking for a way out
he tries to grab Mister Entertainment's head, but the challenger just applies more pressure
but now a knee to the head connects from Fanatic! And another causes Mister Entertainment to falter!"
TRIPP: "That's the sore spot of Mister Entertainment!"
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment lays a shot in on Fanatic
then hoists Fanatic up into a back rack position!"
TRIPP: "Great transitional move by Mister Entertainment!"
NEWMAN: "But Fanatic keeps battles back with elbows to the back of Mister Entertainment's head! Mister Entertainment whirls Fanatic off his shoulders
TRIPP: "The 'Elite Enigma' spun
hooked the head
and hit a modified Hurricanrana from the rack position!"
NEWMAN: "Incredible counter by Fanatic! Mister Entertainment is down by the ropes
Fanatic is lying in a corner
the referee begins his count
NEWMAN: "Fanatic is using the ropes to lift himself
TRIPP: "Mister Entertainment also using the ropes to stand
NEWMAN: "Fanatic up
now goes second rope! Mister Entertainment has his back to Fanatic, looking dazed
Jumping Back Kick by Fanatic and he nails it! Mister Entertainment stands again
DUCKS a Roundhouse kick
runs Fanatic into the ropes
Fanatic CLIMBS THE ROPES and SPRINGS off the top
lands behind Mister Entertainment, who turns
Fanatic hooks the head of the challenger and runs them to the corner
SPRINGBOARD off the second turnbuckle
TORNADO DDT? NO! Mister Entertainment HOLDS FANATIC UP
NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX COUNTER!!!
NOO!! FANATIC GETS THE SHOULDER UP!"
TRIPP: "I'M feeling a little loopy after watching that!"
NEWMAN: "Fanatic is holding his back
Mister Entertainment is clutching his head
but the New ERA Championship is on the line!"
TRIPP: "That's what it's all about, Natalie. And we'll see who comes out of tonight AS New ERA Champion once there's a winner!"
NEWMAN: "It's clear how much these two want the Championship
how much the New ERA Championship matters to both Mister Entertainment and Fanatic
given all we've seen tonight! Mister Entertainment is up before Fanatic, but not by much
he plugs the 'Elite Enimga' with a right hand
and another! Fanatic counters with one of his own
and a second! A third
no! Mister Entertainment blocks and lands a CHOP
NEWMAN: "But Fanatic with one of his own! Mister Entertainment with a forearm
blocked! Fanatic with a Side kick
connects! The challenger is backed up into the ropes
. the Champion charges
Mister Entertainment lifts Fanatic up with a Back Body Drop! Fanatic lands on the apron
but grabs his back! Mister Entertainment turns and NAILS Fanatic with a knee between the ropes, right to his side!"
TRIPP: "That last Northern Lights Suplex must have really brought on the pain for Fanatic
NEWMAN: "And Mister Entertainment looks to capitalize with another Suplex
this time back into the ring! He hooks Fanatic
but Fanatic holds the top rope! Mister Entertainment tries again
still no-go! Fanatic hits Mister Entertainment in the head
one more time and Mister Entertainment loosens! Fanatic with a Headbutt! Shoulder to the ribs doubles over Mister Entertainment!"
TRIPP: "He's still got some fight left
and now the New ERA Champion brings the challenger out onto the apron with him!"
NEWMAN: "Shades of BattleBrawl 3 here
Fanatic with a forearm
but Mister Entertainment shoves him back towards the corner! Fanatic keeps his balance
Mister Entertainment charges and jumps at him! FANATIC HANGS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND DROPS DOWN
MISTER ENTERTAINMENT HEAD-FIRST INTO THE CORNER POST!!"
TRIPP: "He fell right onto the floor!"
NEWMAN: "The crowd can sense the momentum shifting to the Champion
and Fanatic may feel it, too! The 'Elite Enimga' still holding his back but heads down to the floor
heaves up the prone form of Mister Entertainment, quick as he can
and rolls him into the ring! Fanatic is back in and COVERS
THR-- NO!! NO! MISTER ENTERTAINMENT WITH A FOOT ON THE ROPES! He's still in this match!!"
TRIPP: "I don't know HOW
does he have a steel plate in his head? I thought he was knocked out cold!"
NEWMAN: "He may just be going off instinct, at this point
regardless, this match continues! Mister Entertainment is still lying prone on the mat, his foot on the rope
and Fanatic looks down at him as he gets up again
TRIPP: "The Champion has to constantly think of ways to put his opponents down
but at this point, what else is there for Fanatic??"
(Crowd goes wild as Fanatic signals to the top rope.)
NEWMAN: "There's what brought the man here
what the fans feed into
there's the Craze! Fanatic is calling for it
picks up Mister Entertainment
scoops him up and slams him into position! NOW Fanatic goes to the corner
and uses the ropes to soar to the top in one leap!"
TRIPP: "Call him the modern-day Gumby
the Rubber Band Man
NEWMAN: "Call him the New ERA Champion
FANATIC SOARS WITH THE CRAZE!!! NO!! MISSED IT!! FANATIC DOES NOT HIT THE CRAZE!!!"
TRIPP: "MISTER ENTERAINMENT GOT THE KNEES UP AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!!!"
NEWMAN: "Fanatic lands BACK-FIRST on the KNEES! Mister Entertainment rolls to the ropes
gets to his knees
pulls himself up
and Fanatic is still down!"
ENTERTAINMENT: "THIS IS THE END! THE END FER THE TACT LEGACY
THE END OF THE CRAZE ERA!!!"
TRIPP: "He shouldn't be wasting time talking
he should do it!"
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment emphatically proclaiming the end for the Champion
he goes over to him
picks him up
SMALL PACKAGE BY FANATIC!!
TRIPP: "NO! NO!! HE KICKED OUT!!!"
NEWMAN: "FANATIC COULD NOT HOLD THE PIN! Mister Entertainment got loose a SPLIT SECOND before the referee's hand fell for the three
and Mister Entertainment quickly ON FANATIC WITH FISTS TO THE HEAD!"
TRIPP: "I think he's SNAPPED! He's laying closed fists into Fanatic right in front of the referee!"
NEWMAN: "The referee is PULLING Mister Entertainment off of Fanatic
showing a lot of restraint, not calling for a DQ
Mister Entertainment breaks free
and the referee is inadvertently THROWN back and hits his head on the turnbuckle! The referee slumps into the corner
TRIPP: "I'm pretty sure that wasn't in Mister Entertainment's scheme!"
NEWMAN: Mister Entertainment swiftly KICKS Fanatic in the back with the tip of the boot! And again
TRIPP: "The guy's gone NUTS!"
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment goes over to the corner
he's untying the turnbuckle pad! The challenger pulls off the cover and exposes the steel turnbuckle ring! Now he goes to the stirring Champion on the mat
lifts by the legs
looking at the corner, maybe for the Stun Gun! But Fanatic swivels his hips, fighting the grip! Mister Entertainment bends to tighten his hold
Fanatic shoves Entertainment back
but Mister Entertainment stops himself from hitting the steel ring!"
(Crowd goes MAD as Larry Tact comes running down to the ring!)
TRIPP: "LARRY TACT! HE BROKE FREE!!"
NEWMAN: "Or someone got him loose! Either way, he's at ringside! Mister Entertainment does a double-take! He turns back
Fanatic is up! Mister Entertainment charges
ARMDRAG! The challenger up again
Fanatic off the ropes with a Corkscrew forearm! Mister Entertainment is reeling back
Fanatic grabs him by the head
runs him to the ropes
FANATIC SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES
BLUR!! BLUR!! HE HITS THE SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG!!!"
TRIPP: "Larry Tact is trying to revive the referee! But the referee is still out!"
NEWMAN: "Fanatic landed the Blur right in the center of the ring! Mister Entertainment is down
FANATIC HAS THE COVER!! HE HOOKS THE LEG!!"
(Crowd counts, "ONE!! TWO!! THREE!!)
NEWMAN: "It's no use! WAIT
what is he doing??"
TRIPP: "He just took the referee's shirt off! AND HE PUT IT ON HIMSELF!!!"
(Crowd goes WILD!)
NEWMAN: "LARRY TACT JUST GOT IN THE RING! HE'S GOT THE REFEREE SHIRT ON
DOES THIS COUNT?!?"
TRIPP: "I GUESS WE'LL CROSS THAT BRIDGE
NEWMAN: NO! NO! MISTER ENTERTAINMENT
DID HE GET THE SHOULDER UP??"
TRIPP: "HE GOT THE SHOULDER UP!"
NEWMAN: "Larry Tact counted three, but
wait, it looks like another referee is coming down to the ring!"
(The second referee gets to the ring and enters. He starts pointing to the referee shirt Tact has on and then waves off the count, saying it was only a two count. The crowd expresses their extreme disapproval.)
NEWMAN: "IT DID NOT COUNT! Larry Tact may have had good intentions, but the count WILL NOT count! The crowd is not happy
TRIPP: "I think that may have been a 15 count
unofficially, of course!"
NEWMAN: "The official count is all that matters, though
Fanatic and Tact are trying to plead their case with the referee
and now Mister Entertainment is recovering his senses!"
(Crowd collectively gasps!)
NEWMAN: "MISTER ENTERTAINMENT SHOVES LARRY TACT INTO THE EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE
AND SHOVES HIM THROUGH THE ROPES!"
TRIPP: "But Fanatic flies at Entertainment in the corner!"
NEWMAN: "ENTERTAINMENT DUCKS AND FANATIC HITS THE EXPOSED STEEL RING! MISTER ENTERTAINMENT CATCHES THE CHAMPION BY THE WAIST
HE ROLLS AND
(Crowd begins booing mercilessly!)
NEWMAN: "THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT!!! FANATIC'S BACK IS DRIVEN INTO THE MAT! MISTER ENTERTAINMENT IS HOLDING HIS HEAD
BUT CRAWLS OVER AND
HE HOOKS THE LEG!"
TRIPP: "Can he reclaim the title??
(SFX: Bell rings.)
TRIPP: "HE CAN!"
NEWMAN: "We have a NEW CHAMPION
FOR THE SECOND TIME TONIGHT!"
LINKS: "Here is your winner
AND THE NEW
NEW ERA OF WRESTLING CHAMPION
NEWMAN: "Mister Entertainment has righted what he believes was the doom of New ERA
Mister Entertainment has reclaimed the NEW ERA CHAMPIONSHIP!"
TRIPP: "I think his claim of doom were a bit premature
and the methods seemed a little more than suspect
but in the end, we have a new Champion!"
NEWMAN: "Fanatic put up a mighty defense
we saw a man really willing to do ANYTHING to win. But in the end, Mister Entertainment's incidental contact with the referee
and Fanatic hitting the exposed turnbuckle
were too much to overcome! Mister Entertainment was near dead to rights on multiple occasions
but he found a way to prevail!"
TRIPP: "It looks like Fanatic is back on his feet outside the ring, with Larry Tact
NEWMAN: "I can't imagine what he must be feeling now
winning the title, only to lose it the same night
TRIPP: "You may not have to imagine
Larry Tact wants a microphone!"
We're Not Finished Yet...
(Tact receives a mic from a ring attendant, breathing heavily, looking pissed and right at Mister Entertainment.)
TACT: "That was PURE and UTTER BULLSHIT!! NO WAY are you getting away with that!"
(The New ERA Champion walks to the edge of the ropes, looks at the Tact Legacy
and begins laughing hysterically at them!)
TACT: "You think it's funny, huh? YOU THINK THIS IS OVER?! THIS
(He hands the mic to Fanatic.)
(Mister Entertainment stops laughing, but shakes his head at them. Reading his lips: "Too late. This is over." Then he starts laughing at them again.)
TACT: "Over? No, not until WE say so. Because FANATIC still has something you DON'T have
(Mister Entertainment stops laughing. He holds onto the top rope for support, and looks at the Tact Legacy as if they're crazy. He shakes his head.)
(The crowd is INSANE! Mister Entertainment shakes his head furiously. We read his lips: "No! No! No!")
FANATIC: "It was over
I had you beat
tonight. And so, understand this
once and for all, at this PrimeTime
the Craze will consume
your reign ends
all in a blur
(The Tact Legacy heads backstage. A referee brings the New ERA Championship from the back, where Fanatic dropped it during his interview. Mister Entertainment takes the title belt and just stares at it, still holding the top rope.)
(Scuffling can be heard.)
JULIUS: "JESUS NO! What did I miss!!"
NEWMAN: "Oh boy, Dean .. we haven't seen anything yet!"
( continued... )
