(CUTTO: Back to ringside.)
GHEORGHE: "We’re about to kick things off as the Legend Killer and Ghostrin are goin…"
(CUEUP: ‘One Vision’ by Queen. The fans pop huge as Alister Hayze comes through the curtain.)
JIVE: "Oh come ON! Can’t we go five minutes without Alister Hayze trying to suck up airtime?"
GHEORGHE: " Alister Hayze is coming down to the ring!"
(Hayze walks down the rampway and rolls into the ring. He throws his hands in the air as the crowd pops again. Carl Jacobs hands him the microphone and Hayze takes it.)
JIVE: "If anyone out there has any respect for New ERA, please, turn on the mute button right about … now!"
HAYZE: "Ladies and gentlemen, happy holidays, and most importantly, welcome to N-E-W RAUCOUS! Tonight is about championships, folks! We've got another match in the tournament to decide the number one contender for the Television championship! (crowd pop) We've got a four-corners match to determine the number one contender for the Women's title! (another crowd pop) We've got yet another tournament match, this one to determine contender numero uno for the World Heavyweight title!"
GHEORGHE: " Alister Hayze moved into the finals of the World Heavyweight title tournament when he defeated Jonathan Marx on RAPTURE … and he’ll face either the Phantom Republican or Chaos to determine the new #1 contender."
JIVE: "Please let it be Chaos … with his promises of destruction, we can only hope that he’d wipe Alister Hayze off the face of the planet."
HAYZE: "And you know, speaking of the World Heavyweight title, I've got a buddy around back that deserves a little spotlight. He's a guy that's got almost an impossible number of accomplishments. He's one of the most technically gifted wrestlers in the world… despite the best efforts of a number of wrestlers, he won his match at BattleBRAWL… oh, and he's the New ERA World champ! (crowd pop) No false gimmicks… no false hype… ladies and gentlemen, he is JEAN RABESQUE!!!!"
(CUEUP: "Shapes of Things" by The Jeff Healy Band, the crowd explodes as Rabesque appears on the ramp, he is dressed in a "TEAM CANADA" Olympic hockey jersey, which causes the crowd to explode even more. He carries the New ERA Heavyweight Title over his left shoulder, as he walks to the ring, high fiving fans along the way, he hops into the ring, and shakes hands with Hayze.)
GHEORGHE: "The World Heavyweight champion is here in Vancouver!!"
HAYZE: "Here's they are, champ. The people are all yours."
(Rabesque grabs the mic from Hayze as the crowd cheers.)
RABESQUE: "New ERA has been around for almost one solid year now, and I say it's about damn time it made an appearance up here in the beautiful city of VANCOUVER! (Pop) And I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to be here in this beautiful nation, my home nation of CANADA! (Pops even more!) I am proud to stand before you today, STILL the New ERA Heavyweight Champion. I am proud to stand here as a man of honor, as a man of dignity, hell, a TRUE CANADIAN!"
(Crowd goes nuts!)
JIVE: "Who the hell would be proud of being a Canadian?"
GHEORGHE: "Isn’t your family from Nova…"
JIVE: "No! That’s a god damn lie."
GHEORGHE: "Is it, eh?"
RABESQUE: "Now, I'll openly admit that the road hasn't been easy. Hell, it seems like just about the entire damn roster is after me. More people continue to jump on the bandwagon, thinking that they have what it takes to be the one to finally take this title away from me. I mean, look at Jonathan Marx. (Crowd boos LOUD) The man throws on a mask, pretends to be someone else, and can't get the job done against me, not once, but twice. A man who was once about honor, now resorting to that. How about Chaos? Fourth time wasn't the charm, huh son? And how about John Doe? (Boos) First off, I understand he's bitter, because well, he sucks. But then he goes and aligns himself with the phony in a way of getting himself over. Little know fact here folks is that John Doe tried to align himself with ME at one point. When I..... politely declined, I guess he took whomever he could get."
JIVE: "Rabesque is talking non-sense! Why would John Doe EVER want to be aligned with Jean Rabesque."
GHEORGHE: "Because he’s the Worlds Champion?"
RABESQUE: "But to answer the other question on many of your minds tonight, why is Alister Hayze standing in this ring while I speak? Alister Hayze is a good man, a rising up and comer in this business, and a man that I felt could use a little guidance, and a little assistance as he makes his climb up the New ERA roster. Now, I understand full well that he wants my title, and if he didn't I would have NOTHING to do with him. But he is a man that is going to do things the right way, and if someday the time comes when he beats me in the middle of the ring, then I will be honored to hand him the belt. But in the meantime, we both realized that we can not go this alone, we both need a little assistance, and we offered to each other. I am not too proud to admit when the numbers game has gotten to me, and when someone of Alister's caliber offers to help, I'd be a fool to say no."
JIVE: "No, you’d have been a MAN if you said no."
RABESQUE: "You see, when you deal with men that will stoop to any level to see you fall, sometimes you have to play hardball, and you can consider this.... leveling the playing field!"
(CUEUP: "Hell March 2" as the crowd stands up.)
GHEORGHE: "Here we go!"
(The crowd jeers immensely as John Doe takes a step out on the ramp followed by Jonathan Marx, Carlee Marx, and Brandon Jacobs. DREDD is still in their fatigues. Doe and Jonathan Marx both have mics in their hands. They approach the ring sliding in as Hayze and Rabesque back up.)
GHEORGHE: "And DREDD still dressed in those fatigues that we saw earlier … but at least it seems as if John Doe dropped the baseball bat he was carrying."
JIVE: "Look at Hayze .. he is a bit worried in there! Oh man, Jonathan Marx and Doe are in the ring, the rest of DREDD on the outside!"
GHEORGHE: "This is a problem, Nick. Look at this .. you have all of DREDD here and just two men. This is unfair. I don’t care who is in the ring, Jean Rabesque or not, four on two is not fair."
DOE: "Listen to yourself yap, thinking you all of a sudden own the place. The fact is Alister .. Jean .. you guys can talk all you want, but it doesn’t matter one damn bit. But Jean, it seems that you weaseled your way around it again, we try to screw you and somewhere we get screwed. But that is all about to change, right here, right now."
(Carlee Marx and Brandon Jacobs enter the ring as well. The crowd starts to pop as all of DREDD looks at Rabesque and Alister Hayze..)
GHEORGHE: "AND DOE SLUGS HAYZE IN THE MOUTH… AND HERE COMES THE WORLD CHAMPION!! HE STARTS ATTACKING JOHN DOE!"
JIVE: "Hayze is up .. and now they’re hitting Doe and Jonathan Marx with some flying fists!"
GHEORGHE: "Carlee Marx and Brandon Jacobs standing behind Rabesque and Hayze. LOW BLOW BY CARLEE MARX!"
JIVE: "She loves that low blow!"
GHEORGHE: "AND AN AMNESIA ATTACK FROM JOHN DOE TO ALISTER HAYZE! Rabesque is over, here comes Marx…. Marx with a drop toe hold … AND HE GOES FOR THE MARXISM!! He has it locked!!"
(The crowd explodes in a chorus of jeers for DREDD as security charges down the ramp and slides in the ring where they pull Alister Hayze out of the ring and force Marx off Rabesque.)
GHEORGHE: "AND HAYZE IS SWEARING AT DOE! What’s do doing? He’s climbing up the turnbuckle?"
JIVE: "This can’t be good…"
GHEORGHE: "MOONSAULT ONTO HAYZE, RABESQUE, AND THE SECURITY!!!"
(More officials come down the rampway and pull Jean Rabesque and Alister Hayze away from DREDD. Marx and Doe sneer at Rabesque and Hayze, who are both trying to get past security at DREDD.)
GHEORGHE: "I can’t believe what we just saw happen!"
JIVE: " Chaos is right! LaRoque HAS let this turn into a circus!"
GHEORGHE: "Security has finally got those four men separated, and the World Champion and Alister Hayze head off to the back. DREDD is now walking up the ramp and New ERA officials are making sure that they stay away .."
JIVE: "DREDD has really stepped up after their poor showing on RAPTURE."
GHEORGHE: "Now that the ringside area has been cleared, let’s go up to Carl Jacobs who is in the ring for our first match of the evening."
(CUTTO: Carl Jacobss, who is standing in the ring bewildered by what just went on. The lineup for the match flashes on screen.)
JACOBS: "The following match is scheduled for one fall and has a thirty minute time limit! Introducing first…"
(CUEUP: ‘Sandman’ by AC / DC. The Legend Killer walks out from behind the curtains and immediately begins to bad mouth the fans along the rampway. He gets down to the ring and starts bad mouthing the fans at ringside, although some retaliate and give him the finger. He slides into the ring and climbs the turnbuckle.)
JACOBS: "He stands six foot three and weighs 299 pounds … hailing from Montgomery, Pennsylvania … he is the LEGEND KILLER!"
JIVE: "The Legend Killer looks ready to bite some of these fans’ heads off…"
GHEORGHE: "Well, I hope he has that same tenacity in the match."
JACOBS: "And his opponent…"
(CUEUP: ‘Gravity Well’ by Sonic Mayhem. Ghostrin comes from the curtains and marches out to the platform. He stops before he reaches the ramp, and looks around him, a slight smirk coming across his face. However, all emotion is washed away as he starts walking down the rampway towards the ring.)
JACOBS: "He stands six foot six and weighs 263 pounds … hailing from Miami, Florida … he is GHOSTRIN!"
(SFX: Bell rings.)
GHEORGHE: "And the first match of the night is underway!"
JIVE: "Ghostrin and Legend Killer look pretty wary of each other."
GHEORGHE: "Ghostrin walks around the ring as Legend Killer is standing in the middle watching him… Ghostrin comes in and they lock up! Legend Killer using his mass to his advantage as he backs Ghostrin up into the ropes… and now the referee is asking for the break.. Ghostrin puts his hands up … AND LEGEND KILLER WITH A CHEAP SHOT TO THE RIBS!"
JIVE: "If you don’t do your homework and know nothing of your opponent, you should always cheat."
GHEORGHE: "That’s not a good thing to tell people, Nick."
JIVE: "It worked for Legend Killer…"
GHEORGHE: "Legend Killer brings Ghostrin off the ropes by his hair .. and he wallops him in the back with a forearm shot. Ghostrin still doubled over, and now Legend Killer drives the knee right into the chest sending Ghostrin to the mat! Legend Killer in control early, and he drops the knee right into the sternum of Ghostrin!"
JIVE: "Ghostrin needs to get to his feet quick … being outweighed by over 30 pounds doesn’t make it much easier to make a come back."
GHEORGHE: "The Legend Killer now up again and he brings Ghostrin to his feet … Legend Killer with ANOTHER knee to the chest … Legend Killer bounces off the ropes AND DRILLS GHOSTRIN IN THE HEAD WITH A BIG BOOT! Killer covers Ghostrin … ONE ….. TWO ….. KICKOUT!"
JIVE: "Ghostrin was pretty much knocked silly with that big boot."
GHEORGHE: "Legend Killer now has Ghostrin … AND HE LOCKS THE ARM AND HAS HIM IN A CROSSFACE CHICKENWING!"
JIVE: "Killer doesn’t have that arm hooked around the back though … if Ghostrin can gain enough consciousness, he could easily get out of it."
GHEORGHE: "The ref checking on Ghostrin now … Ghostrin not responding to his questions .. so the ref picks up his arm … AND IT FALLS! Ghostrin looks out of it!"
JIVE: "Legend Killer might walk out of here with an easy victory."
GHEORGHE: "The referee picks up his arm a second time … BUT GHOSTRIN HOLDS ON TO THE REFEREE! GHOSTRIN HAS THE REFEREE’s SHIRT!"
JIVE: "That’s one way to get out of the hold.. make the referee break it up for his own safety!"
GHEORGHE: "And that is EXACTLY what the referee is doing! Legend Killer looking at the referee like he has two heads … and he releases the hold!"
JIVE: "Either way Legend Killer was put in a tough situation .. keep it on and risk being disqualified, or release it and give Ghostrin a chance to catch his breath."
GHEORGHE: "Ghostrin now using the referee to get to his feet .. AND THE REFEREE PUSHES HIS HANDS OFF HIM! Now the referee is getting in the face of Ghostrin for using him!"
JIVE: "Hey, a guy’s gotta do what a guy’s gotta do."
GHEORGHE: "Legend Killer back behind Ghostrin though … AND LEGEND KILLER RUNS BEHIND HIM AND DRIVES THAT SHOULDER INTO THE BACK OF GHOSTRIN’s KNEE! Ghostrin hits the mat … and now he’s holding that knee and he’s in pain!"
JIVE: "He could have broken his knee cap with that move!"
GHEORGHE: "Legend Killer now takes the legs of Ghostrin … AND HE LOCKS ON THE FIGURE FOUR!"
JIVE: "If I were Jean Rabesque I’d come out here and watch this … Rabesque could use some pointers on how a REAL figure four is done."
GHEORGHE: "The World Champion has the best figure four in the business, Nick … and now the referee asking Ghostrin if he wants to submit .. and he’s keeping his distance this time … AND LOOK AT LEGEND KILLER! LEGEND KILLER GRABBING THE BOTTOM ROPES FOR ADDED PRESSURE!"
JIVE: "And Ghostrin sits up and looks like he’s ready to pop!"
GHEORGHE: "The referee turns around .. AND HE CATCHES LEGEND KILLER USING THE ROPES! The referee now counting the hold … and Legend Killer releases it at four!"
JIVE: "This referee is really on the ball tonight."
GHEORGHE: "Legend Killer is back to his feet, but Ghostrin is still down on the mat holding his knee … and now Legend Killer is STOMPING on the leg of Ghostrin! Legend Killer drags Ghostrin over to the ropes … he places his leg on the bottom rope … AND JUMPS UP AND CRASHES DOWN FULL FORCE!"
JIVE: "If his knee was already out of place then that move will hurt ten, no, twenty times more!"
GHEORGHE: "The Legend Killer now picks up Ghostrin … he irish whips him … NO! Ghostrin takes three steps and falls to the mat! The Legend Killer walks over to him … and Legend Killer with a nonchalant pin attempt! ONE ……. TWO ……… KICKOUT by Ghostrin!"
JIVE: "If Legend Killer makes one mistake in this match, it’ll be that cockiness."
GHEORGHE: "Legend Killer picks up Ghostrin …. AND HE BULLDOGS HIM RIGHT INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING!"
JIVE: "And now he’s heading to the corner!"
GHEORGHE: "I think Legend Killer is going to head up top .. HE IS!"
(The fans begin to jeer loudly! Legend Killer stops and raises his hands as he believes they are jeering him … but in reality they are jeering the two men who have come running down the rampway..)
GHEORGHE: "DREDD IS RUNNING TO THE RING!"
JIVE: "They’re back for more … AND THIS TIME THEY’VE GOT BASEBALL BATS!"
GHEORGHE: "Legend Killer finally turns around …. AND HE GETS GREETED WITH A SHOT OF A BASEBALL HANDLE RIGHT IN HIS FACE BY JOHN DOE!! Killer holding his face …. AND JOHN DOE IS CLIMBING THE TURNBUCKLE!"
(SFX: Bell rings!)
JIVE: "And the referee is calling this match! DREDD has ruined Legend Killer’s victory!"
GHEORGHE: "JOHN DOE TAKES LEGEND KILLER ……… OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! JOHN DOE THROWS LEGEND KILLER OFF THE TURNBUCKLE TO THE ARENA FLOOR!!!"
(SFX: Crowd pops!)
GHEORGHE: "AND HE SPLASHES DOWN ON TOP OF HIM!!!"
JIVE: "HOLY HELL!!"
GHEORGHE: " Jonathan Marx is in the middle of the ring now as Ghostrin is getting to his feet … and now Ghostrin is up .. AND HE’s BACKING OFF! Ghostrin now trying to explain to Marx that he wants no part …. AND MARX IS LETTING HIM LEAVE!"
JIVE: "Marx is the compassionate one, apparently."
GHEORGHE: "JONATHAN MARX JUST NAILED GHOSTRIN IN THE BACK OF THE KNEE WITH THE BASEBALL BAT!!! THAT BASTARD!!"
JIVE: "I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!"
GHEORGHE: " John Doe is on the outside …. AND HE SENDS LEGEND KILLER INTO THE RING STEPS!!! Legend Killer is laid out on the arena floor …. AND NOW MARX IS GOING FOR THE MARXISM!!! JONATHAN MARX HAS THE MARXISM LOCKED ON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!"
JIVE: "So much for being a ‘Gentleman,’ eh?"
GHEORGHE: "I can’t believe this! This match has been tossed out because of the actions of DREDD.. WHO THE HELL DO THEY THINK THEY ARE?"
JIVE: " John Doe has the microphone!"
(Doe rolls into the ring and stands next to Jonathan Marx, who still has the Marxism locked on Ghostrin. Ring officials start pouring out from the back and run towards the ring.)
DOE: "We don’t care whether you’re a champion … or if you’re jabronie trash like these two .. NO ONE IS SAFE FROM DREDD. RAUCOUS is the site of our personal JIHAD … and we will strike WHENEVER (pauses) and WHEREVER we please!"
(Doe tosses the mic down as the referees get into the ring and start trying to pry Jonathan Marx off of Ghostrin.)
GHEORGHE: "This is despicable! We’ve got to take a commercial break … I can’t believe this .. DREDD has gone insane .. talking about jihads and showing a blatant disrespect for all rules.."
JIVE: "New ERA has brought this upon themselves, Tom.. the day that Jean Rabesque was allowed to walk out of Destrucity with the World title."
GHEORGHE: "We’ll be right back!"
