We check back in with our World Champion and our World Tag Team Champions later in the night, and they’re looking VERY pleased with themselves. The skybox is VERY well-fed, well-drank for those that are into that kind of thing, and able to capture the very ESSENCE of what REIGN has to offer, all from the comfort of some very nice chairs.
Mark Kendrick: While we’re not able to get someone up there and back in time for our final match of the evening, we DO have what basically amounts to a fancy zoom call set up with Furia Inviernal. Viento, I certainly hope you’re having a great night!
Viento Helado: Mark, we’re having a WONDERFUL night. The action, the grandeur? We’ve really taken REIGN to the next level, haven’t we? And by we, I mean Furia Inviernal.
Mark Kendrick: I’m certainly happy with the way things are going, that is for sure. Viento, I have Maria here with me as well. She had a question for you all.
The camera shifts towards Maria Madden, who’s also mic’d up for this occasion.
Maria Madden: Any news or word from Avalanche Anderson yet?
Viento nods his head and considers her questions while shifting in his seat.
Viento Helado: Nothing from Avalanche yet, but I’m confident we’ll hear from him very, very soon. We look forward to welcoming him into the family, as it were, and putting this business of challenging for my championship behind us. Table it for later, you know.
Without warning, the door to the skybox FLIES open, as Martin Claypool and Devoe Anderson burst through the door, steel pipes in hand! They level the World Tag Team Champions and drag them out into the hallway! The camera follows as Claypool and Anderson continue their assault, punching, kicking, and hitting the tag team champions with everything they possibly can!
Soon, the camera cuts back to the skybox and you see none other than JOHNNY BRAVE walk in! He’s flanked by Helado’s previous title challenger, RAPTURE.
Mark Kendrick: This is bad news, Maria! We’ve lost our direct feed to the skybox, the tag team champions are under attack, and I think Viento is in trouble!
Maria Madden: Viento is ABSOLUTELY in trouble.
Viento Helado’s eyes are HUGE as he stares Rapture down. He knows he has no place to go, so he attempts to launch an attack onto Rapture, but gets clipped in the back of his leg by Johnny Brave, stifling the attack as soon as he tries it! Viento Helado is helpless.
Rapture grabs Helado’s face and walks him down towards the front of the skybox! The fans are rabid, waiting and watching for what happens next, and Johnny Brave has pulled a microphone from his jacket!
Johnny Brave: You BEAT Rapture? BEAT HIM?
Brave shakes his head.
Johnny Brave: No no. You SURVIVED the Rapture, and you should consider yourself very lucky to have done so, because tonight, you will not be so lucky.
Mark Kendrick: What does he mean by that?
Maria Madden: Ohhh, I think I know…
Rapture is now holding Viento’s head over the edge of the skybox! The crowd is losing their collective minds!
Johnny Brave: Just a moment, Rapture. One of the things that is always so interesting about professional wrestling and wrestling arenas is that there are always so many things to get thrown through, thrown off of, thrown… well, you know what I’m saying. And the Los Angeles Epicenter is no different!
You see, while SAFEGUARD were happy to take my money in service of getting the tag team champions out of the way, it really is me that has paved the way for Rapture to do this.
Rapture looks over towards Johnny Brave, who simply mouths the words “dispose of him.” Rapture attempts to lift Helado to his feet, but Helado is dead-legging, trying to force Rapture to really and truly work. His efforts are mostly in vain though, as Johnny Brave comes over and attacks Helado one more time in the back of the leg, causing the REIGN World Champion to stumble and ultimately get lifted up over Rapture’s head. The fans are absolutely OUT OF THEIR MINDS RIGHT NOW.
Mark Kendrick: WHOA WHOA WHOA. That is my WORLD CHAMPION UP THERE. SOMEONE GET HIM SOME HELP! WHERE ARE THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS?!
Maria Madden: You heard Johnny Brave, Mark. SAFEGUARD took a payday, took out the tag team champions, and here we are.
Security starts flooding up the steps, but ultimately they are too late. Rapture presses Viento Helado over his head and then just SLINGS him over the edge of the skybox, with nothing more than a loud CRASH and THUD and the utter silence of the Los Angeles Epicenter Crowd.
Mark Kendrick: That’s enough! Get medical up there! Security!
The final shot of this edition of REIGN is that of a smiling, cackling Johnny Brave, a satisfied Rapture, and a crumpled and unconscious Viento Helado. The only thing of his that remains in the skybox is the REIGN World Championship, which Johnny Brave picks up and hands to Rapture, who simply holds the title over his head as the show fades.
