EPISODE: Almost Live 02
(The camera fades into the rowdy Humphrey Coliseum! A horde of passionate WFW:NE fans hang over the guardrail in their merchandise including GAMMA-O masks and “RIP Manson” t-shirts. The camera dizzily cuts through the crowd before coming to focus on the big screens as it illuminates with the logo for WFW:NE Almost Live!)
JACOBS: "Welcome everyone to Almost Live; we are live from a capacity crowd Humphrey Coliseum in Starkville, Mississippi! Tonight is our Russian Roulette Tag Partner Tournament where two friends and two enemies of Cameron Cruise face off, with one of friend and foe going to the finals at the Halloween Almost Live to become Cameron Cruise's new tag team partner and one half of the WFW World Tag Team Champions. Golem and Psycho tonight will also face off tonight to determine who will go on and face Felix Red in a Spin The Wheel, Make a Deal match in a WFW World Heavyweight Championship match with each man getting to pick four stipulation matches of their choice to put on the wheel."
MARX: "Every match on this show has a consequence. There are no filler matches. Every match between now and the PPV is important, so everyone here has to step up their game and go all out to make sure they get the job done."
"NOT" WATERS: "The match that has my interest peaked is HAL verses Jeff Jorgenson. These two were going back and forth like each other like they were in the main event and because of that, the match was moved up to second from the top on the show."
JACOBS: "Both of those guys have a lot of promise. I could see them both with a couple of breaks here and there being defining wrestlers of the New ERA of World’s Finest Wrestling."
MARX: "They have to back up their words with wrestling in the ring though."
"NOT" WATERS: "But what makes WFW:NE great is not only that we have great wrestling, but we are going to have a match like Felix Red and Jared Wells teaming up against GAMMA-O and Black Dragon in a tag where if someone is thrown to the floor or tries to escape, the lumberjacks with straps are going to beat the hell out of them."
MARX: "As the Dream would say, violence for the sake of violence!"
"NOT" WATERS: "And Felix Red deserves a good beating for what happened to Manson..."
MARX: "That was an accident and we don't even know if Manson is really dead."
"NOT" WATERS: "Regardless, and I'm not a fan of Manson because he was always a pain in Doc Silver's side, GAMMA-O seems to embody elements of both Doc and Manson and Doc Silver wouldn't approve of anyone killing Manson but himself, so GAMMA-O giving Felix Red some come comeuppance for what he did is about time."
JACOBS: "Well Vic, you will get any chance if their last encounter was any indication of what is to come, folks, we have to go to commercial break, but when we come back, our first match of the evening is Jason Payne verses Larry Tact for the opportunity to become one half of the WFW World Tag Team champions and Cameron Cruise's partner, STAY TUNED!"
JACOBS: "We are back from our commercial break and it is time for our first match of the evening, Larry Tact verses Jason Payne!"
"NOT" WATERS: "I've personally looking forward to seeing Jason Payne wrestle for the first time."
MARX: "You've never seen him wrestle before?"
"NOT" WATERS: "Whenever I tried watching New ERA while Rabesque was champion, I simply fell asleep in front of my TV and got out of the habit."
MARX: "So wait, you didn't even watch me wrestle?"
"NOT" WATERS: "Here and there... but I did get to see Larry Tact and boy, was he awesome."
MARX: "He may have been the greatest New ERA World Heavyweight champion of all-time."
"NOT" WATERS: "I've heard some rumors that Payne was trying to do some more technical wrestling to get prepared for Larry Tact. While that is always good to know, I hope he doesn't try to take him on at his own game."
MARX: "Jason Payne feels like he has something to prove, but I'm sure when push comes to shove, he'll make sure that he plays to his strengths because it takes a lot to beat Larry Tact and if he tries to go move for move, he is going to be in trouble."
JACOBS: "Larry Tact isn't a pure technician either, but he does it quite well and it is his strong suit. I can see why Payne would want to improve and don't fault him for that."
MARX: "One of these men may be Cameron Cruise's World Tag Team championship partner and be one half of the WFW:NE World Tag Team champions...."
"NOT" WATERS: "The question the Cruise in this game of Russian roulette, will it be a friend or a foe?"
MARX: "It can go either way and this is what I love about this tournament."
JACOBS: "Folks, let send this one down to ringside and get this one underway!"

LINKS: "The winner of the match and the man who advances in the Russian Roulette tournament, "THE DOG OF WAR" JASON PAYNE!"
MARX: "Jason Payne has pulled off the upset; he has beaten the greatest New ERA World Heavyweight champion of all-time!"
JACOBS: "I certainly didn't expect this!"
"NOT" WATERS: "Jason Payne came in here with something prove and when you have that fire behind you, it can drive you to new heights."
MARX: "He got a lucky break though with the ref stumbling."
"NOT" WATERS: "In sports, stuff happens, sometimes against you, sometimes for you, but when something happens in your favor, you have to take advantage of it and tonight Payne proved all the Nay-Sayers wrong. He proved that he deserves to be in the ring with the best of the best."
JACOBS: "Tact almost drove Payne to his breaking point several times in this match and while Payne did show that he has progressed as a technical wrestler, Tact showed why he was the best in the world. But even in the best in the world can take a shot to the head and be stunned... Tact is going to avenge this and come back ten times stronger like he always does."
MARX: "You also have to wonder how badly Tact was banged up coming out of his Unplugged New ERA World Heavyweight championship unification match against Shawn Hart."
"NOT" WATERS: "This is wrestling; nobody ever comes into a match 100%. Payne came off a war with Krusher and Krusher can dish out the pain."
JACOBS: "It is time for our second match of the evening, Jared Wells and Felix Red will team up against GAMMA-O and Black Dragon in a lumberjack with straps match."
MARX: "This match would seem to favor the two former members of LOVE who are used to the more physical side of wrestling."
"NOT" WATERS: "With the training GAMMA-O and Black Dragon underwent in Japan training, they are used to enduring a lot of abuse in order to test if these wrestlers have what it takes to last in this sport."
MARX: "We don't really know who they are under the masks, they may not even be necessarily from Japan but Felix Red and Jared Wells to have the WFW:NE experience factor on their side."
JACOBS: "Who are the lumberjacks for this match?"
MARX: "WFW:NE spared no expense and actually flew in lumberjacks from the Pacific Northwest. They are all sporting wearing flannel, have long, thick beards, and half of them tried to smuggle their axes on the plane, but we don't think any of them were successful. We don't want a repeat of what happened in our last lumberjack match."
"NOT" WATERS: "I still say every so often, it is good to thin out the roster a little bit. One guy loses an arm and all the wrestlers in the locker room suddenly turn into pussies."

WINNERS: GAMMA-O and the Black Dragon via pinfall after GAMMA-O hit Felix Red with the Sweet Dreams Stunner at 14:16.
"NOT" WATERS: "GAMMA-O and Black Dragon did an excellent job of isolating Felix Red and keep Jared Wells from getting into the match legally."
MARX: "They wanted their pound of flesh from Felix Red and they got it. It had to be awfully frustrating for Jared Wells not to be able to get in there and do normal damage."
JACOBS: "A win over the champion moves GAMMA-O rapidly up the contender list. Black Dragon set the tone for this match and took one for the team in order to make sure GAMMA-O came out on top."
MARX: "GAMMA-O took a morbid pleasure in watching Felix Red get whipped by the lumberjacks with the straps. He is very sadistic human being."
JACOBS: "This feud between the two is far from over. Felix Red will want his revenge."
MARX: "Jared Wells is going to want his chance to get these two to himself as well."
JACOBS: "Folks, we have to take a commercial break, but when we comeback, it is time for our second Russian Roulette match to determine Cameron Cruise's partner and one half of the WFW:NE World Tag Team champions with Problem Child taking on Alex Wylde! STAY TUNED!"
JACOBS: "It is now time for our Russian Roulette match and you couldn't find two people who dislike Cameron Cruise more if you included all of his ex-wives."
MARX: "Problem Child apparently has some tie to the Japanese ownership and started going into business for himself ripping on people left and right. He is very nasty individual and very few people are spared."
"NOT" WATERS: "I really like Problem Child. He makes things interesting."
JACOBS: "Thankfully there is only one Problem Child or this show would be brought to you by Frovatriptan."
MARX: "Now on the other side, we have Alex Wylde, the former President of the WFW and a former WFW World Heavyweight Champion who won his very first World Heavyweight championship in the old WFW .. his issues with Cameron Cruise started back in the CSWA. Cruise beat Wylde for his very first championship in wrestling, on an off night by Wylde, and until Cruise had his recent run of success, he would repeatedly bring up the fact in numerous promo annoying the hell out of Wylde."
"NOT" WATERS: "Cameron Cruise has undergone a tremendous transformation, but for years, he was like a member of the Justice League International. He was entertaining, but few people took him seriously. He was a Booster Gold like figure."
JACOBS: "What makes this match especially interesting though is that these two men who share such a hatred for Cameron Cruise were once aligned together, in faction, Problem Child was his protégé and if he wants to be the one tortures Cruise, he has to beat his mentor."
MARX: "Life has a way of coming full circle. My money is on the former WFW World Heavyweight Champion Wylde, but this is going to be tough contest."
JACOBS: "Folks, there is only one way to find out, let’s send this one down to ringside!"
(The camera cuts to the ring as the lineup comes on screen.)

Wylde picks Problem Child up off the mat and hits him with the jumping piledriver. Wylde goes for a cover and gets a two count on PC.

Wylde clocks him with a spinning heel kick right to the head and PC goes down again. Wylde goes for a cover and gets another two count. PC starts crawling towards the ropes and Wylde goes after him. He goes to pick up PC but PC pulls Wylde by the hair and he falls through the ropes to the outside. Problem Child rolls out of the ring and he goes after Wylde.

Wylde appears to having some trouble with his back. Problem Child rolls Wylde back in and reenters the ring. He goes for the cover but shockingly only gets a two. PC picks Wylde off of the mat in a front face lock and he moves towards the corner, he climbs up to the second rope and he hits STDDT (Leaping DDT from the top rope) on Wylde but the ref goes down in the process. Problem Child goes for the cover on Wylde not seeing that the ref is down. A second referee starts walking down to ringside and PC turns around and sees the other referee down and tells the other one to hurry up. The second ref goes down for the count and Wylde kicks out at two. Problem Child grabs the second referee by the shirt and starts yelling at him for taking his sweet ass time to get down to the ring. Wylde is starting to get up, he sees the back of PC's head and he goes for the Gatecrasher, unfortunately for Wylde the ref broke free and he winds up clocking the ref instead of PC. The second referee is down. Problem Child turns around and attacks him with a flurry of chops. Problem Child rakes the eyes and he whips Wylde off of the ropes, he jumps up for a headbutt but Wylde catches him in midair and hits him with the Wild Buster Sitout Suplex. Wylde goes for the cover on Problem Child but the second referee is still down. A third referee runs down to ringside. The referee goes down to make the count on Problem Child but he gets his foot under the bottom rope to break up the three. Alex Wylde waits for PC to get up. PC is slowly getting up. Wylde is trying to hooks PC for a bridging belly to back suplex but PC is fighting it. Wylde finally takes him down with it. The ref goes down to count, but PC shifts his weight on top of Wylde using the damage from earlier from the guardrail to land on top, both men have their shoulders down, the ref goes to count, 1------- 2-------- PC gets his shoulder up but Wylde does not!
WINNER: Problem Child via pinfall after both men’s shoulders were on the mat for the two count, but Wylde being unable to lift his before the three at 12:55.
MARX: "The student finally beat his mentor, even though it took three refs to beat him."
"NOT" WATERS: "This is just another blatant example of the league messing with Wylde yet again. How good can these referees be if they can taken out so easily? Wylde had the pin, but the ref cost him."
JACOBS: "He cost Problem Child as well."
"NOT" WATERS: "He is lucky he didn't take his head off with the Gatecrasher. That first ref still isn't up."
MARX: "We are going to need a commercial break to clear out the dead bodies."
"NOT" WATERS: "Speaking of dead bodies, how do you thin Cameron Cruise feels about the prospect of Problem Child being his partner?"
MARX: "Poor Cruise."
JACOBS: "It is time for the match that has generated so much attention, management is now billing this as a co-main event."
MARX: "For these two so early on in their career here to get co-main status is a tremendous endorsement by management."
"NOT" WATERS: "This isn't like other leagues before you have to file for Social Security before you can start challenging for championships."
MARX: "I thought Jeff Jorgenson made some excellent points. What does all this nonsense about technology have to do with wrestling?"
"NOT" WATERS: "This generation isn’t just wrestlers. They are well rounded men who are experts in many fields and they use this advantage to get the edge in the ring."
MARX: "Wouldn't it make sense just to focus on one aspect and get really good at that?"
"NOT" WATERS: "Even with wrestling, there are many different aspects, you have to have proficiency, you have to have a good stand, you have to be able to take it to the man, and you have to be able to mix things up when they get dirty."
MARX: "Yes, but why does he need to talk about technology when hyping up a match?"
"NOT" WATERS: "Didn't the Nature Boy talking about wining and dining and his promiscuity with women? HAL is simply the Technological Nature Boy of this age."
MARX: "Wrestling should be about wrestling and tonight Jeff Jorgenson is going to shut HAL up."
"NOT" WATERS: "HAL is going to ring Jorgenson's bell so bad his pain is going to be an infinite loop."
JACOBS: "Before we nerd out even more, let’s send this one down to ringside and get this one underway!"

(CUEUP: "It's All About the Pentiums" by Weird Al. The lights in the arena dim as the pyro goes off in the ring. Harold A. Lumbourgh saunters down to the ring slowly, almost timidly. Ignoring the fans, he walks to the ring carrying a laptop.)
LINKS: "And his opponent making his debut here tonight, from Redwood, Washington , weighing in at 282 pounds and standing at 6'4, making his official WFW:NE debut here tonight, HAL!"
(SFX: Bell rings.)
MARX: "The size difference between these two men is tremendous. It is almost half a foot and over one hundred pounds."
"NOT" WATERS: "That is like a whole half a person."
JACOBS: "Jeff Jorgenson extends his arms for a test of strength and a befuddled HAL extends his arm. JEFF JORGENSON JUMPS UP AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A HEAD SCISSORS TAKEDOWN!"
MARX: "Jeff Jorgenson is using his brain, he is going to have to utilize his quickness in order to beat HAL with the size difference."
"NOT" WATERS: "HAL make look like Dwight Schrute, but he can kick ass like Chuck Liddell."
JACOBS: "Jeff Jorgenson locks on a rear chinlock and he is keeping HAL down on the mat."
MARX: "He is trying to slowly wear him down."
JACOBS: "HAL is trying to extend those long legs of his over towards the ropes to break the threshold in order to get a rope break."
"NOT" WATERS: "HAL is even bigger than Jared Wells."
JACOBS: "HAL is inching his way towards the ropes, but Jeff Jorgenson finally breaks it. HAL tries to get back up and Jeff Jorgenson bounces off the ropes... JEFF JORGENSON HITS HAL WITH A DROPKICK AND HE STUMBLES OUT OF THE ROPES AND ONTO THE FLOOR!"
CROWD: "GREENHORN! GREENHORN! GREENHORN!"
MARX: "Jorgenson has to capitalize on this momentum!"
JACOBS: "Jorgenson picks HAL off the ground and he rolls him back into the ring. Jeff Jorgenson looks at HAL and then over to the top rope, he decides to START CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE..."
"NOT" WATERS: "If he hits this, it could be over in the blink of an eye. C'mon HAL! Get up!"
JACOBS: "JEFF JORGENSON PERCHES ON THE TOP ROPE... HE FLIES OFF WITH A TOP ROPE MOONSAULT BUT HAL MOVES OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME!"
"NOT" WATERS: "Thank god. It looks like the Greenhorn got the wind knocked out of him when he crashed down on the mat."
MARX: "The wrestler has been school the nerd so far, just like I predicted and he could have had him there."
"NOT" WATERS: "The match isn't over until the ref counts to three. This war has a long way to go."
JACOBS: "HAL is the first one to get up and picks Jorgenson up and he lifts him up over his shoulder."
"NOT" WATERS: "Did you see how Jorgenson went up with ease? This HAL fellow has some power."
JACOBS: "HAL SLAMS JORGENSON DOWN WITH A POWERSLAM!"
"NOT" WATERS: "Clean up on aisle eight!"
JACOBS: "HAL bounces off the ropes... HE DROPS AN ELBOW SQUARE INTO THE STERNUM OF JORGENSON! HAL hooks the leg and he is going for a pin!"
"NOT" WATERS: "Two quick shots to the chest and sternum by HAL. Jorgenson may be stunned enough to be pinned."
JACOBS: "THE REF GOES DOWN TO COUNT! 1---- 2----- JORGENSON GETS THE SHOULDER UP!"
MARX: "There is a lot of fight in Jorgenson. He talked a lot of talk with HAL and he showed he can back it up. If he gets a couple of wins under his belt, Jorgenson could be challenging for any championship in this league."
JACOBS: "HAL lays Jeff Jorgenson across his knee and he is pressing down hard, driving that knee into the square of his back."
"NOT" WATERS: "Jorgenson is a very compact individual, so if you wear down his back, it makes the most simple of movements hard to do."
MARX: "HAL is a relentless individual. He is a highly driven person which is a key to success. With some older wrestlers they finally get to a certain level and then they start to relax, HAL and Jorgenson though are both hungry and want to prove themselves. That is why they are in the co-main event, trying to do everything and anything to win so they can take that step to the next level."
JACOBS: "HAL finally lets go and Jorgenson is looking worse for wear, he is grabbing his back which undoubtedly has to be spasming after all the abuse he has taken in such a short time span."
"NOT" WATERS: "I definitely wouldn't want to be in Jorgenson's shoes right now."
JACOBS: "HAL picks Jeff Jorgenson up and he starts laying in forearm shots to the back of Jorgenson. Jorgenson falls to one knee but then gets back up trying to fight through the abuse."
"NOT" WATERS: "Jorgenson may want to stay down if he knows what is good for him."
JACOBS: "HAL spins Jorgenson around and kicks him in the midsection. HAL lifts Jorgenson up for a powerbomb... BUT JORGENSON TRIES TO FIGHT IT OFF AS HE IS PUNCHING HAL REPEATEDLY WITH CLOSED FISTS RIGHT IN THE HEAD!"
"NOT" WATERS: "All HAL has to do is drop him down on his back."
MARX: "That is awfully hard to do when he is grabbing onto your ear for dear life."
JACOBS: "HAL IS DAZED! JEFF JORGENSON TAKES HIM DOWN WITH THE VICTORY ROLL! The ref goes down to count! 1-------- 2----- HAL JUST GETS THE SHOULDER UP!"
MARX: "How many times must it be done before people stop trying, you can't powerbomb Jorgenson!"
JACOBS: "A mad HAL jumps up and HE GOES TO CLOTHESLINE JORGENSON! JORGENSON DUCKS!"
MARX: "Jesus Christ, if he connected, he could have taken his head off with that one."
JACOBS: "HAL turns around, JEFF JORGENSON HITS HIM SQUARE ON THE CHIN WITH THE SUPERKICK!"
MARX: "Cover him!"
"NOT" WATERS: "HAL got blind-sided by that!"
JACOBS: "Jeff Jorgenson is waiting for HAL to get up, I think he is going to try to attempt to hit him with his patented Death Valley Driver despite the size difference."
MARX: "That is definitely a risk."
"NOT" WATERS: "With all the abuse HAL has taken already, he needs to be hit by something that will keep him down."
JACOBS: "HAL is getting up... Jorgenson is waiting.... JORGENSON LIFTS HAL ONTO HIS SHOULDER FOR THE DEATHVALLEY DRIVER BUT HAL IS FIGHTING IT AND JORGENSON IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO HANG ON..."
"NOT" WATERS: "HAL has to escape or it will be curtains for him."
JACOBS: "HAL MANAGES TO SLIP OFF BEHIND JORGENSON... HE LOCKS HIS HANDS AROUND JORGENSON' WAIST AND HE HITS HIM WITH A BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX!"
MARX: "He dumped him right on his head!"
JACOBS: "HAL goes for the cover! The ref goes down to count! 1---- 2---- JORGENSON GETS THE SHOULDER UP!"
"NOT" WATERS: "He almost had him."
MARX: "Jorgenson needs to find a way to break up the momentum."
JACOBS: "HAL is standing over Jorgenson.... HE IS CALLING FOR THE CONTROL ALT DEL BURNING HAMMER!"
"NOT" WATERS: "That move can literally kill a man."
JACOBS: "Jorgenson is getting up... HAL GOES TO LIFT JORGENSON UP BUT JORGENSON ELBOWS HAL RIGHT IN THE TEETH BEFORE HE CAN LIFT HIM UP!"
"NOT" WATERS: "The WFW:NE dentists are making higher salaries than most of the midcarders ..."
JACOBS: "HAL is grabbing his jaw in pain.... JORGENSON HITS HIM WITH A JAWBREAKER AND HAL GOES DOWN!"
"NOT" WATERS: "Oh man!"
JACOBS: "Jorgenson heads towards the ropes and he is climbing out of the ring, onto the apron and he is setting himself waiting for HAL to get up."
MARX: "When scouting Jorgenson for WFW:NE, I heard about his springboard clothesline but I have never actually seen it."
"NOT" WATERS: "If he hits HAL with it right now, that may be enough to finally keep him down for good as much as I hate to admit. I may not like Jorgenson, but he is putting up one hell of a fight."
JACOBS: "HAL is finally getting up and Jorgenson is set... JORGENSON FLIES WITH THE SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE BUT ALLOWS HAL ENOUGH TIME TO CHARGE JORGENSON AND HIT HIM FIRST WITH A RUNNING SHOULDERBLOCK CLIPPING HIM OUT OF MIDAIR! Jorgenson crashes down with a thud!"
"NOT" WATERS: "God damn, this is like Duck Hunt come to life."
JACOBS: "HAL is waiting for Jorgenson to get up and Jorgenson is out of it... HAL decides not to wait and he picks Jorgenson up off the mat... HE HITS HIM WITH THE CONTROL ALT DELETE!"
MARX: "NO DAMN IT!
JACOBS: "The ref goes down to count! 1------ 2------ 3!"
LINKS: "THE WINNER OF THE MATCH IN HIS WFW:NE DEBUT.... HAL!"
MARX: "Jorgenson put up one hell of a fight, but in the end, HAL's size and power was just too much to overcome."
"NOT" WATERS: "I have to give Jorgenson credit, he came in with a smart game plan, he used his quickness and he didn't give up... he could have easily won this match on multiple occasions."
MARX: "If both of men put up showings like they did tonight, I could see both men in a Superbowl of Wrestling one day."
"NOT" WATERS: "That is a long ways a way, but the future tonight certain looks bright."
JACOBS: "Folks, we have to take a commercial break, but when we come back, it is time for the main event … Psycho will take on Golem with Minion as special referee with the winner taking on Felix Red for the WFW World Heavyweight Championship in a Spin The Wheel, Make a Deal match! STAY TUNED EVERYONE!"
