(The camera opens on a packed civic meeting hall. About 300 fans are seated in the darkened hall…as a lone spotlight slowly scans the noisy crowd.

The Camera goes to the broadcast position at ringside, where Jason and Ryu sit…)

Jason: “Ladies and gentlemen…THIS…IS OBLIVION!”

(The fans erupt as music plays and modest house lights flash…)

Jason: “That’s right fans…SHOOT PROJECT is PROUD to present another night of unbelievable action!”

Ryu: “That’s right Johnson!”

Jason: “It’s going to be a hell of a night. We’d like to thank all you fans who are watching us on Video throughout the world or through our Webcast. Let’s not delay any further…let’s get right to the action!”

Rocky Stellar vs. Jayson Storm

The ring is dark. Samantha steps into the spotlight…

(The crowd cheers appreciatively…as "Hero" by Foo Fighters begins to play over the sound system…)

Samantha: “This our FIRST match of the night! Now…coming to the ring standing 6 feet 5 inches and weighing in at 275 pounds…ROCKY STELLAR!”

(The crowd cheers as Rocky Stellar strides to the ring with a determined look on his face. He climbs into the ring and raises his hands to the roar of the crowd…)

Samantha: “HIS OPPONENT…already in the ring to my right…JAYSON STORM!”

Jason: “The SHOOT newcomer Rocky Stellar immediately walks up to Storm and gets right in his face…we got ourselves a good old fashioned STARE DOWN to start off tonight!”

Ryu: “Well, it looks like Rocky Stellar isn’t wasting any time asserting himself here…”

Jason: “Storm swings a wild punch at Rocky Stellar, who ducks and nails Storm with a left hook…Rocky Stellar throws on a side headlock, but is shoved off into the ropes. Rocky Stellar returns from the ropes with a shoulderblock, knocking Storm down. Rocky Stellar goes for the cover…trying to end this one early…ONE…NO! Storm kicks out!”

Ryu: “Stellar may have caught Storm off guard there with that shoulder tackle and early cover…”

Jason: “Storm to his feet…nails Rocky Stellar with a boot to the midsection…headlock attempt is shoved off…Storm turns…and takes a clothesline. Storm up…Stellar scoops him up…powerslam!”

Ryu: “Rocky Stellar goes for the cover again…this match has been all Rocky Stellar so far…here we go, ONE…TWO…kickout again!”

Jason: “Storm is bailing out…Storm rolls on out to the floor…he is not happy, pacing back and forth….Storm slowly gets back in the ring, and he and Rocky Stellar lockup…Rocky Stellar is shoved back to the turnbuckle, and the ref wants a break…Storm lets go…but then hammers at Rocky Stellar right away…two successive uppercuts by Storm and a whip across the ring…Rocky Stellar gets a boot up as Storm blindcharges…Rocky Stellar goes to the second rope, fakes a jump, Storm drops to the mat to avoid it…then Rocky Stellar hits a leg drop on Storm’s back as the fans cheer!”

Ryu: “WOW! What a move by Rocky Stellar! He’s a HELL of an athlete…and he’s showing that here!”

Jason: “Rocky Stellar now throws some kicks to the back of Storm…whip into the ropes and a HIGH backdrop on Storm by Stellar. Cover: ONE…TWO…Storm kicks out again…but barely…”

Ryu: “This is ALL Stellar…”

Jason: “WOW! Rocky Stellar kicks Storm in the head with a perfect savate kick, and throws some stiff shots at his jaw…Rocky Stellar hammers away until the referee breaks that up. A right hand in retaliation from Storm nails Rocky Stellar right in the face…and now Storm starts stomping away…in the corner Storm punches and kicks, and refuses to stop. A choke with the boot follows, and Storm heads to the outside…”

Ryu: “Storm is usually a pretty easy going guy but he’s good and pissed now…and we’re seeing an aggressive side to him that we don’t usually see!”

Jason: “Outside now…a whip is by Storm is reversed…Rocky Stellar hammers him into the ringpost, and then rolls back into the ring…Storm crawls back behind him and he appears to be in a lot of pain…both guys trade punches in the corner, and with Rocky Stellar winning it…whip to the opposite corner is reversed, Storm lands chest first, and Rocky Stellar drives his shoulder into Storm's back.”

Ryu: “After a quick flurry of offense…Rocky is back in control!”

Jason: “Storm is put on Rocky Stellar’s shoulders and launched right to the ropes throat first! Bounces off, Rocky Stellar comes off the ropes, and nails him with a legdrop. Cover: ONE…TWO…Kickout…but barely!”

Ryu: “Boy, Rocky Stellar is aggressive, focused an really on his game…”

Jason: “Rocky Stellar scoops Storm up…WHAM! FRONT RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP…This is probably it…COVER…ONE…TWO…THREE!!!”

(Rocky Stellar rises to his feet, and raises his hands in victory…as the bell rings as “Hero” begins to play…)


Jason: “Rocky Stellar has arrived ladies and gentlemen…and has made quite a statement by going over SHOOT PROJECT vet Storm in convincing fashion…that fight was NEVER even close…Stellar just dominated and destroyed Storm.”

Ryu: “He sure has arrived…let’s look at this replay while Storm makes his way back to the dressing room…MAN…drove his face right into the mat! BOOYA!!!”

The Flying Dutchman Vs. Ander Carvetti

Jason: Wait a sec... that’s Keichi Kawada...

[The man walks down to the announcers table to greet Jason and Ryu. Apparently, something has happened. He comes over and kneels down to Jason, whispering in his ear. A look of surprise comes over Jason's face. Ryu looks over, but gets no information. The security man hands Jason a pair of broken sunglasses, and then leaves. Jason Johnson is bewildered, but moreso, Ryu is as such.]

Ryu: Well?

Jason: Well what?

Ryu: What was that all about?

Jason: Apparently, both Ander Carvetti and The Flying Dutchman are unconscious backstage.

Ryu: Who did it?

Jason: Well, Dutch got hit with a steel chair that broke these glasses. And Carvetti seemed to have been hit with a much more blunt object, and he may have a concussion. Actually, I think what Keichi just told me is that they both have concussions. My Japanese isn't all that great.

Ryu: So let me get this straight... Both Dutchman AND Carvetti are unconscious? And they both have concussions. Well isn't that just great. So wait, what does this mean for this match... and... who did it?

Jason: Well obviously, the match is cancelled. And you can pretty much guess who did it.


Jason & Ryu: Wikkid.

Jason: So yeah... I'll check on them after the show goes off. I wouldn't want the Yakuza thinking that I'm not taking good care of their stars.

Ryu: Wise decision.

Jason: I thought so. Let's move on, shall we?

Roland The Dark vs. Vile

(The camera returns to the ring…we see Vile standing in the middle of the ring loosening up…as “Black Mass” by Danzig is heard over the hall’s sound system.)

Samantha: “Now for our next match…In the center of the ring… standing 6 feet 8 inches tall and weighing in at 284 pounds…VILE!”

(The crowd cheers…)

Samantha: “And NOW…”

("Wake Up" by Rage Against the Machine is heard over the arena sound system.)

Samantha: “Coming to the ring…standing 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighing in at 258 pounds…ROLAND THE DARK!”

Jason: “Roland looks very intense and focused…WHOA! Roland The Dark storming the ring and starts pounding on Vile. Roland throwing right hands repeatedly…Vile in the corner as Roland The Dark POUNDS away at him as the crowd goes NUTS!”

Ryu: “WOW! Roland not wasting any time here…he’s all business!”

Jason: “Roland pulls Vile to his feet in the corner…Roland backs up to mid-ring and comes flying in with a solid clothesline! Vile looks a bit dazed and bails out of the ring.”

Ryu: “Vile is a newcomer to Shoot and Roland has been here for a while…it looks like Roland is wanting to let Vile know that he is not just going to WALK over him!”

Jason: “Clothesline from Roland sends Vile and Roland both out of the ring to the floor!”

Ryu: “WOW! The momentum of that clothesline took both those guys onto the floor.”

Jason: “Roland grabs a chair! Roland The Dark slams Vile with a chair shot…right to the head…Vile staggered…”

Ryu: “Did you hear that crack? Vile backs up…he’s dazed…wait…as Roland came after Vile, Vile deliberately suckered Roland in and NAILED him with a SINGLE LEG TRIP right onto his own chair…!”

Jason: “As if landing head first on the concrete wouldn’t be bad enough, Roland lands on top of his own chair…Vile is jumping on this…he’s picking Roland The Dark up…”

Ryu: “WHAM! Vile just SLAMMED Roland The Dark on top of that chair!”

Jason: “Roland The Dark has his hands over his back…as Vile grabs him and rolls him back into the ring…Vile pulls Roland to his feet…and now he hits him with a stiff European uppercut…now Vile throws Roland The Dark headfirst into the turnbuckle. Vile with shoulderblocks to Roland The Dark's midsection…repeatedly…he’s softening him up…”

Ryu: “I’ll say! Vile is clobbering him!”

Jason: “Vile pulls Roland to his feet again…Vile BEAL THROWS him over the top rope to the outside!”

Ryu: “SHIT!”

Jason: “Vile follows Roland outside…he walks over to the steel chair that Roland used on him earlier…OH NO…CHAIRSHOT…right into Roland’s head!”

Ryu: “Hey, fair’s fair! Roland did that to Vile!”

Jason: “Vile pulling Roland to his feet…rolls him in and follows in…Vile pulls Roland to his feet…but Roland pounds a right into Vile’s face…Vile returns the favor…jab…Roland returns a shot…now Vile…Roland…Vile…Roland…Vile…”

Ryu: “Roland is busted open…now Vile is too…the blood is flowing …they just keep taking turns pounding each other in the head…neither one will back off or give up…this is a SLUGFEST!”

Jason: “Roland fires a right cross…Vile side-steps and nails Roland in the kidneys with a brutal bodyshot…Roland The Dark up, with a number of BRUTAL rights…Vile staggered…Roland secures Will’s head…!”

Ryu: “POWER BOMB…COVER: ONE…TWO…Kickout by Vile …”

Jason: “Vile staggers to his feet but he looks woozy… Roland fires a jab that misses…Vile ducks and answers…he flattens Roland with a smashing right cross to face…and now he scoops Roland up for the slam…and DOWN goes ROLAND! BODY SLAMMED…”

Ryu: “Roland staggers to his feet…”

Jason: “Roland grabs Vile by the back of the head…then leans back as far as he can and LAYS a fist right into Vile’s face! Roland The Dark pounds Vile in the face with those taped fists…and has knocked him on his ass…now a whip…reversal but Roland The Dark gets a leg up as Vile charges…Roland The Dark hits a forearm smash on Vile…he whips Vile into the corner…bulldog!”

Ryu: “Oh man…what a BRAWL …”

Jason: “Vile lying prone…COVER: ONE…TWO…Kickout by Vile…Vile rolling to the outside…Roland The Dark crawls after him…grabs Vile around the wrist…whip attempt is reversed and Roland is sent into the steel steps…BOOM!”

Ryu: “Vile rolls back into the ring…but not to be outdone…Roland crawls in right after him…the ref calls for a BREAK as both men stagger to their feet…the crowd comes to it’s feet…they’re cheering themselves hoarse!”

Jason: “The most impressive thing about this match is that Vile has managed to hang with the POWERFULL and DOMINATING Roland The Dark…who seems EXTRA aggressive this week! Roland has used a variety of POWER moves…this has been more of a BRAWL than a straight up wrestling match…but both men are fighting tough!…Roland is the first to make a move…he charges forward and floors Vile with a WICKED Lariat…Vile is down…Roland dropping a knee right on Vile’s head! Roland rolls outside while Vile holds his head with both hands… Roland goes back for that damn folding chair…”

Ryu: “WHAM! Roland NAILS Vile with ANOTHER chairshot! Vile staggered…”

Jason: “Roland now secures Vile’s head between his knees AGAIN…he has him up…POWERBOMB on the steel chair!”


Jason: “Roland The Dark goes for the cover: ONE…TWO…THREE!!!”


Matt Black Vs. Blake O'Reily

Samantha - This match is a non-disqualification match. On his way to the ring at this time, weighing in at 212 pounds, Matt Black!!!

['Fight Song' by Marilyn Manson booms out of the PA. Black makes his way through the curtains and down the aisle]

Jason – he looks in good shape.

Ryu – yeah but is he good enough to face what is coming down that aisle in about 30 seconds

Jason – we shall see

Ryu – you damn right we shall see

[Black rolls into the ring and goes to the opposite corner. The Referee comes over to talk to him]

Samantha - and his opponent, weighing in at 228 pounds, Blake O’Reily!!!

[The lights dim down to a nice grey as "End is the Beginning is the End" by Smashing Pumpkins begins to whale on the PA system. O'Reily steps out from behind the curtain and stands motionless just in front of it. O'Reily runs his fingers through his hair and slowly nods his head side to side with the music. He slowly walks to the ring and rolls under the bottom rope.]

Jason – well he was a colour commentator with us last week, and he did not have any good words to say about Del Carver.

Ryu – the important thing is Jas, when Del Carver squared up to Blake last week, Blake backed off…that to me shows the colour of Blake O’Reily.

[Matt Black walks around the ring. Blake O’Reily checks out the ring.]

Jason – this match is a go, Black not hanging around. O’Reily gets caught with an elbowsmash to the face.

Ryu – Maybe Blake will wake up now.

O’Reily pushes Matt Black into the corner and turns to the fans. Matt Black climbs the ropes and goes off the top turnbuckle and double foot stomps Blake.

Jason – what a move by Black. He made O’Reily look like and amateur there.

Ryu – both men are back to there feet. O’Reily is holding his head. O’Reily superkicks Matt Black.

Jason – Possum!!! My god that is quick feet by Blake there, Matt did not see it coming. Blake pulls Matt up from the apron and knife chops him into the corner. He backrolls out of the corner and attempts another superkick into the face of Black. Black ducks and thrusts a fist into the nether regions of Blake.

Ryu – oh my god, that has to hurt. Matt is going to the top…moonsault, moonsault…this is over…one…two…Blake is up.

Jason – Blake may have kicked out but he is in a bad way. Matt bounces off the ropes and dropkicks Blake in the head, he follows up with a leg drop across Blake’s throat.

Ryu – Black is going high again an elbow from the top on Blake. Cover One…Two…Thr…my god that was close there.

Jason – I did not think we would see Blake manhandled like this.

Ryu - Blake slowly gets back to his feet. Matt charges at O’Reily, O’Reily lifts Matt into the air and delivers a spine buster. Blake picks Matt off the matt and Blake executes a snap mare on Black and locks him into the sleeper.

Jason – Where the hell did Blake get those moves from, he turned this match on its head.

Ryu - Ref is checking for a tap out... O’Reily tightens the hold. O’Reily breaks the hold.

Jason – why did he break the hold, there is no sense in it.

Ryu – you listened to his commentary last week, did any of that make sense.

[Blake gets up. Matt Black is back on his feet.]

Jason - O’Reily hits Matt with the back of his elbow. Blake applies the clawhold on Matt.

Ryu – Black breaks the claw hold but O’Reily picks Matt up and executes a stomachbreaker. O’Reily goes to the ropes and executes a corkscrew legdrop on Matt. Blake O’Reily gets back to his feet. Blake O’Reily knees Matt and rolls back to his feet.

Jason – now that is vintage Blake O’Reily

Ryu - Matt slowly gets to his feet, he looks groggy. Blake O’Reily pins Matt against the ropes and chokes him with his forearm he then delivers a short-arm clothesline to Black.

Jason – it is now playtime for O’Reily, he is systematically taking Black apart.

Ryu - O’Reily moves in for the kill, Black counters with a hiptoss and then fist drops Black on the mat. Matt gets up. Black pulls O’Reily off the apron and bounces off the ropes

Jason - jumping neck snap. My god these two are going for it big time, just when you thought Matt Black was out he comes back with that move…

Ryu - Black rakes his fingers across O’Reily's back. Black goes to the top, he waits perched. O’Reily staggers to his feet

Jason - Nice flying dropkick by Matt. The assault continues, Matt goes to the second turnbuckle and hits an elbowdrop. Matt hits a flying karate chop right to O’Reily's neck. Flying sidekick by Matt takes O’Reily off his feet. Matt Black goes off the top turnbuckle and double foot stomps Blake.

Ryu – The flying man is in his zone. O’Reily better start thinking and fast or else he is going to be 0-1.

Jason - Matt is back on his feet. Blake moves back to his feet. Black tries for a leaping swinging DDT but O’Reily avoids it. My God!! What a match!

Ryu - O’Reily nails Matt with a belly-to-back suplex. Blake is up again. He makes a move but Black slaps both sides of Blake's head out of desperation. Black tries for a tilt-a-whirl powerslam but O’Reily avoids it and counters with a DDT. O’Reily grabs Black by the arm and pulls him to his feet and breaks it over his shoulder.

Jason - armbreaker. Karate chop to the throat, punches to the face, to the stomach, Blake goes off the ropes and hits Matt in the head with a forearm.

Ryu – Black is down. Blake goes for the cover…just the two count.

Jason – Black gets to his feet and goes to hit a superkick. Blake catches Black's leg, but Black reverses it with an enzuigiri to Blake O’Reily's head. Blake hit the mat hard there.

Ryu – Black not for the first time in this match goes to the turnbuckles. Matt Black flies from the turnbuckle with an elbowdrop. Matt Black climbs to his feet. He goes for the top rope, and Blake catches him in a reverse headlock, and then drops down into a DDT.

Jason - Nice top-rope DDT by O’Reily. Well Ryu, both these guys seem to have something to offer. The World Champ not only has the likes of Johnson and Boyer to look out for but O’Reily has proved tonight he can give and take a beating.

Ryu – I did not here a bell Jas, he has proved nothing until he can get the 1…2…3.

Jason - O’Reily knifehand chops Matt. O’Reily neck snaps Black. Blake O’Reily hits a kneeling headbutt to Black's groin. What a combination of moves by O’Reily.

Ryu - Matt hits a jumping elbow thrust on O’Reily. This is what I mean Jas, Blake titted around and never finished the job and got hit by a sucker punch. Black elbow smashes Blake O’Reily in the nose. O’Reily goes for an exploder suplex but Matt Black dodges the attack. O’Reily bounces off the ropes and they hit each other with a clothesline.

Jason – both men are down. The ref is counting. Can this match end in a double countout?

Ryu – I guess so since it is a no DQ

Jason – O’Reily is up at seven, Black is still down. Blake O’Reily locks Black in the elbow submission. Ref is checking for a tap out…Blake O’Reily tightens the hold...Black escapes. He reaches the ropes.

Ryu – so tell me, if O’Reily did not break the hold there what would the ref done since there is no DQ.

Jason – I do not know but My God!! What a match!

Ryu - Blake comes from behind and bulldogs Matt. O’Reily pulls Black off the mat and executes a swinging bulldog on Matt driving Black's face into the mat. O’Reily hits Black with an elbowdrop. Black slowly gets to his feet. Blake grabs Matt's head and arm and delivers a head and arm suplex. O’Reily stands up.

Jason - O’Reily kicks Matt on the mat. O’Reily fist drops Matt Black on the mat. O’Reily gets up. Matt gets back to his feet. A thumb to O’Reily’s eye, a jumping neck snap on Blake O’Reily. Matt goes off the top turnbuckle and double foot stomps Blake O’Reily. Matt Black moves back to his feet. Blake O’Reily is up again.

Ryu – I cannot believe these two men still have the strength to get off the mat never mind fight. Blake short lariats Black. Blake puts Matt Black in the double underhook position and gives him a double underhook backbreaker. Matt is slow to his feet. An armdrag takedown. O’Reily thrust kicks Black in the head.

Jason – This is over, this is over…O’Reilly Factor...1...2...3!!!

Ryu: I hate that little fucker who kidnapped my mom.

Jason: What about the Yakuza?

Ryu: Oh yea....they are here tonite.

(Then, as if on cue SHOOT music starts to play and anywhere from 80-100 men walk down the ramp in a line of two. One man is at the front, and he climbs into the ring. Black looks around, and grabs a mic from Samantha. He then gives it to the Yakuza leader.)

Mr. Kosi: Mr. Black. It is such a...pleasure to meet you in real life.

(Black, gathering his breath leans against the ropes behind him, as the fans cheer for Mr. Kosi.)

Mr. Kosi: Enough of the small talk. Where is my wife?

(Mr. Kosi hands the mic to Black, who appears to be wanting to negotiate.)

Matthew: Sir...I...I thought that you...gave me two weeks. I didn't want her to be injured here tonite, but I wanted to say one thing.

(Black hands the mic to Mr. Kosi and leans against the ropes more, still wore out from the match.)

Jason: I really can't believe this...

Ryu: He appears not to want a fight with my Dad.

Jason: And that other horde of men.

(Mr Kosi puts the mic up to his mouth and acts as if he is in deep thought.)

Kosi: Yes, I did say that. But what did you want me to know.

(Mr. Kosi gives the mic to Black with triumph etched onto his face.)

Black: You won't get her tonite...and you won't get her next week either.

(Matt drops the mic, and tackles Mr. Kosi, he then starts punching him, but realizes the men filing into the ring, jumps over the ropes and goes out of the building the back way, not to be seen for the rest of the night.)

Jason: “WHAM! FLYING BODYPRESS BY JACKMAN ON WILL JAMES…WHILE THE Carver HELD HIM IN THE ARMBAR! What precision by Jackman! Carver releases the armbar and Jackman goes for the cover! The ref shakes his head…”

Ryu: “The fans are standing on their seats…the bell rings…”


Jason: “I guess due to Lee and The Innovator of Pain brawling their way out of the arena and the outside interference of Del Carver…the ref is throwing this whole match out…even though it IS a No DQ match…Carver and Jackman are PISSED…they are up in the ref’s face while Will James lies in a bloody heap, surrounded by broken glass!”

Ryu: “HEY! Jackman just shoved the ref…the ref is ARGUING with Carver and Jackman and just POKED Jackman in the chest. BAD MOVE!”

Jason: “Ben Jackman FLATTENS the ref with a right jab! He’s OU COLD! Del Carver hoists the slumping ref up on his shoulders…Ben Jackman nods…gives Carver the high sign…”

Ryu: “Oh lord, what are those two up to now?”

Jason: “Jackman lightly jumps to the top rope…and comes OFF with a flying clothesline taking the REF OFF the shoulders of Carver…and folding him up in midair! The ref does a 360 in the air and lands on his head…right next to Will James!”

Ryu: “They’re gonna PAY for that. Listen to the damn fans going crazy!”

(“Trip Like I Do” by Crystal Method begins to play as the house lights go up…)

Jason: “What a finish to a brutal match! Carver and Jackman high five each other in the middle of the ring…Will James still laying prone in the middle of the ring…Ben Jackman and Del Carver leave the ring, and slowly start to trudge up the aisle..”

Ryu: “What a NUTHOUSE! PLEASE tell me you’re going to fine those two.”

Jason: “I can see Jackman’s point…it WAS a no DQ match and he WAS angry at James for almost destroying his hand a few weeks ago…but he shouldn’t have put his hands on the ref…there will be some repercussions for those two…rest assured.”

Ryu: “Look at that…the poor ref has to be helped out of the ring…and Will James is able to walk out on his own. Damn. He looks mad.”

Del Carver vs. Eddie E.

Ryu: “What a war this next fight should be…”

(The ring is dark. Samantha steps into the spotlight as "So Fresh So Clean" by Outkast begins to pound over the speakers…)

Samantha: “This is the MAIN EVENT…and is for THE SHOOT PROJECT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!…Introducing first…making his way to the ring…standing 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing in at 253 pounds…the man who brings the buy rate…your Shoot Project RULE OF SURRENDER CHAMPION…Mr. PPV…EDDIE E!!!”

Ryu: “Eddie E. on his way to the ring…he looks great as usual…he’s got the shades…he’s got the beautiful robe…he’s got the gold belt around his waist…look at that STRUT…right in time with the music no less…this guy has STYLE!”

(Eddie’s music stops playing…Eddie is on the ring apron…and turns around and SCOWLS…suddenly the rough guitar riff of UNBEND by 5440 echoes throughout the hall…)

Samantha: “AND NOW…coming to the ring…standing 6 feet tall and weighing in at 265 pounds he is THE SHOOT PROJECT WORLD CHAMPION…DIAMOND DEL CARVER!”

(Del Carver emerges and begins to walk to the ring. Del is soaked from his prematch warm ups…his hair is slicked back, and he is wearing the red, highly fashionable and popular “MR.PPV” T Shirt…with “SMELL THE BUY RATE” emblazoned across the back. Del has the Shoot Project Title around his waist…)

Jason: “Del looks good…but unfortunately he is also got that infamous black duffel bag of his slung over his shoulder…and we all know what THAT means…Del throws the bag casually on the floor next to the ring steps and climbs into the ring…Del hands his belt to the ref who holds it over his head. Del getting right up in the face of Eddie…who has taken off his robe and handed HIS belt over to the timekeeper. Stare down…”

Ryu: “Everybody knows the history between THESE guys…they hate each other guts and DAMN HOLY SHIT!!!”


Ryu: “How the HELL did he do that? He must have had a match or flashpaper in his glove? Did you hear the crowd GASP when he did that? What a HUGE fireball exploding RIGHT in the face of Eddie right as the bell rings…”

Jason: “Carver now smiling and laughing as he STOMPS on the face of the prone Eddie E. who is laying on his back…with his hands over his face…Carver grinding his boot into the face of Mr. PPV…”

Ryu: “The shocked Mr. PPV staggers back into the corner…his hands are away from his face...it doesn’t look like that damn thing BURNED him but it sure as hell SINGED him and blinded him…”

Jason: “You know that those things are usually for effect more than anything, but it sure scared the shit out of everybody!”

Ryu: “HEY! I think Carver singed Eddie’s EYEBROWS OFF!”

Jason: “Del Carver drives a shoulder into Mr. PPV…backs up and then charges in for a clothesline…but he charges into the big boot of Mr. PPV!”

Ryu: “HA! What a REBOUND by Mr. PPV…”

Jason: “Mr. PPV drops a BIG elbow, early cover…ONE…TWO…Kickout by Carver. Both men up…Brutal smash to jaw of Mr. PPV from Del Carver! Mr. PPV collapses to the mat, clutching his face again…Del Carver quickly to the top rope…LEG DROP! ONE…TWO…Kickout by Mr. PPV!”

Ryu: “After the initial shock of that fireball…Eddie E. has settled in and is fighting back…”

Jason: “Both men up…big boot to the midsection of Del Carver from Mr. PPV…Carver doubled over but comes back with a HUGE lariat! Cover by Del Carver…ONE…TWO…Kickout by Mr. PPV!…Side headlock on Mr. PPV by Del Carver…oh boy…Mr. PPV lifts Carver and drops him on the ropes crotch first!”

Ryu: “YIKES!”

Jason: “Carver painfully straddles the top rope for a moment, then falls back in the ring to the mat…Carver struggles to his feet…a HIGH PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK to the champion from Mr. PPV sends Carver outside the ring to the floor…Mr. PPV out after him…Mr. PPV hammers a punch into the head of Carver…now he scoops up Carver …looks like he’s going for the running powerslam, outside the ring…”

Ryu: “Oh man! This is gonna HURT!”

Jason: “NO! Carver slips off and pushes Mr. PPV shoulder first to the steel ringpost! The crowd erupts! Del Carver now on the attack with a few punches and kicks…Clothesline drives Mr. PPV over the security barrier...Del Carver leaps on the wall…double axe handle attempted, but Mr. PPV moves!”

Ryu: “I don’t think Eddie wants to screw around out there with Carver…”

Jason: “Mr. PPV dragging Del Carver through the crowd now…Carver gets sent into the wall head first! Mr. PPV grabs a camera cable and chokes Carver with it…Carver elbows Eddie in the gut…the two man trading punches as they brawl their way through the crowd back towards the ring…Mr. PPV throws Del Carver over the security barrier.”

Ryu: “This has turned into a brawl and that is NOT to the advantage of the CHALLENGER…Eddie is playing Del’s game…”

Jason: “Mr. PPV pulls Carver up by the hair…Del Carver fires a few solid punches into the midsection of Mr. PPV…now these guys are brawling their way up the aisle!”

Ryu: “Good thing our cameras are mobile! These guys are evenly trading lefts and rights…look! Now they’re over by the entrance…”

Jason: “Mr. PPV lands a couple of European uppercuts and gains the advantage…Del Carver is violently shoved into the security barrier in the aisle…”

Ryu: “Del Carver just came up with something! It’s a SODA from one of the fans! Mr. PPV gets sprayed in the face with a SODA!”

Jason: “Eddie’s temporarily blinded…Carver is handed a STEEL CHAIR by one of the fans while Eddie is flailing around...WHAM! Carver just rung Mr. PPV’s bell there…he smashed Eddie over the head with that chair! I guess he’s showing Mr. PPV that if he wants to play around outside the ring…he’s more than happy to oblige…Carver up…grabbing Mr. PPV by the back of the head and running him down the aisle back to the ring…and throws him head first into the ring apron!”

Ryu: “Eddie has been run head first into that apron…he bounced back and landed butt first on the floor…he’s holding his head…”

Jason: “Del Carver rolls Mr. PPV back into the ring…now he drops a leg and covers: ONE…TWO…KICKOUT and Mr. PPV's up…Carver rolls outside the ring and grabs his duffel bag…”

Ryu: “Great…”

Jason: “Del Carver throwing all sorts of objects from his bag into the ring now…there goes a hammer…a small length of chain…a pool cue…I think that is a staple gun…now Carver goes under the ring…he tosses a SNOW SHOVEL in the ring…there’s a steel chair…a trashcan…the fans are cheering as Carver rolls back in the ring…”

Ryu: “Mr. PPV is slowly getting to his feet as he gets inundated by the GARBAGE that Carver is tossing into the ring…”

Jason: “Del Carver SMASHES Mr. PPV over the back with a trashcan lid!”

Ryu: “He bent it!”

Jason: “Del Carver with another legdrop. Cover: ONE…TWO…KICKOUT! Mr. PPV does a BEAUTIFUL kip up….scoop, and a BODYSLAM to the shocked Del Carver!”

Ryu: “Mr. PPV bounces back from the beating to slam Carver! What a pro!”

Jason: “Del Carver is pulled up to his feet by Mr. PPV…Eddie lifts Del up…holds him HIGH in the air with a beautiful vertical Suplex…and DROPS him on the top of his head! BRAINBUSTER!”

Ryu: “Brutal! Cover: ONE…TWO…NO! Carver kicks out! We almost had a new champion there! Eddie grabs Del again...SNAP SUPLEX!”

Jason: “Mr. PPV covers: ONE…TWO…NO! Mr. PPV stays on him…pulls Del Carver back to his feet…FRONT RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP. Eddie nails Carver again and covers! ONE…TWO…Del’s shoulder up again…Del Carver rolls over…he looks frazzled and dazed!”

Ryu: “Carver won’t stay down!”

Jason: “Mr. PPV to his feet…Del Carver tries a dropkick…but Mr. PPV side-steps and Carver falls…Mr. PPV picks the chair up and cracks it over Carver’s head!”

Ryu: “Mr. PPV gaining the upper hand again on Del Carver…who’s hardcore now?”

Jason: “Carver is staggered…Eddie E. hoists him up…back Suplex! Eddie goes for the cover: ONE…TWO…KICKOUT by Carver! Eddie argues with the ref…he feels that should have been a three count…Eddie now turns back to Carver who is slowly getting to his feet…”

Ryu: “Swinging neck breaker by Eddie on Del Carver! WHAM! COVER! ONE…TWO…KICKOUT by Carver! Eddie right back on the offensive…DDT!”

Jason: “COVER! ONE…TWO…KICKOUT by Carver! Eddie is getting frustrated! He pulls Carver to his feet again…WHAT THE?”

Ryu: “THE LIGHTS ARE OUT! Did you forget to pay the electric bill Jason?”

Jason: “Not quite…the hall has gone pitch black…totally dark…the fans are buzzing, but we can’t see what is going on in the ring…”

(“I Stand Alone” by Godsmack begins to play ominously over the sound system…)

Ryu: “UH OH!”

Jason: “The house lights are going up…it’s THE REAL DEAL! The Real Deal standing in the middle of the ring! Del Carver and Eddie E. are staring at him…both men are exhausted from this battle they have been waging…and now The Real Deal stands dead center of the ring…”

Ryu: “Yeah…but why? What is he doing here? His face is expressionless…”

Jason: “The Real Deal looking at Del Carver…WHAM!”

Ryu: “SUPERKICK to Del Carver by The Real Deal! Carver goes down like a ton of bricks! He took that RIGHT on the JAW!”

Jason: “Eddie E. now theatrically THROWING his arms open wide…going to embrace The Real Deal…these two must be in cahoots and…NO!”

Ryu: “WHAM! The Real Deal CLOBBERS Eddie E. with a SUPERKICK to HIS JAW!”

Jason: “WOW! Both Del Carver and Eddie E. are DOWN in the middle of the ring! The Real Deal stands in the center of the ring, admiring his work…his face remains expressionless…now The Real Deal calmly leaves the ring and heads up the aisle as the fans go nuts!”

Ryu: “WHY THE HELL did the Real Deal DO THAT?”

Jason: “I can only speculate. That World Title was HIS, he never lost that belt technically…I assume this is his way of telling everybody that he is BACK.”

Ryu: “Carver, being the first guy to get kicked is the first man to stir…”

Jason: “Carver getting to his feet and looking around…disoriented…Carver sees Eddie E. who is also starting to show signs of life…Del Carver picks up the pool cue that he threw into the ring earlier…”

Ryu: “WHAMO! Del Carver just cracked that pool cue over Eddie’s HEAD. HE BROKE IT OVER HIS HEAD!”

Jason: “Mr. PPV staggering now…the stub handle of the pool cue is still in Del Carver’s hand…the long end flew off into the crowd when Carver brained Eddie with it…Eddie is now busted open! Carver WHACKS Eddie in the midsection with the broken end of that pool cue…Eddie doubles over…Carver cinches in what looks to be like an inverted DDT…”

Ryu: “Yeah…Eddie is in the DDT position, but is facing UPWARDS…so if Carver hits this Mr. PPV will be flat on his back…”

Jason: “AND HE DOES! WHAM! Inverted DDT…I understand that Del Carver calls that move ZERO HOUR! COVER…ONE…TWO….THREE!”

(The bell rings… “Unbend” by 5440 kicks in and Del rises to his feet in victory…)


Jason: “Wait! Eddie's back up! Del makes a start toward him... Eddie pokes him in the eyes!! DAMN! What a dick! Del's covering his face, trying to avoid anymore pain than he's already in...Eddie kicks his knee out! Del is DOWN!

Ryu: "Hmmmm. Methinks that Eddie isn't exactly happy with what went down here."

Jason: "Eddie grabs both of Del's legs in a wishbone position and begins repeatedly stomping into the groinal area of Del Carver! Del is screaming in pain!!"

Ryu: "We're out of time!"

(Oblivion fades out. Eddie, still laying the proverbial boots to Del, smirking all the while. Del screaming in excruciating pain. Fade to Black...)
