The scene cuts to Gavin Grimes standing inside of his locker room next to Paige Daniels. Gavin is all dressed up in his ring gear, which is a white tank-top, black jeans and a pair of Air Jordans.
Paige Daniels - Gavin, you were in Portland Pro Wrestling for the first four months of your career and you never got the chance to go head to head with Blyss Lockhart there but you two do have a lot of history. How do you feel about this match tonight?
Gavin nods along at the question and then thinks it over for a few seconds.
Gavin Grimes - Well, I thin-
Before he can answer, the microphone is suddenly pulled away by someone else not in the shot. The camera pans to reveal Blyss Lockhart with a smirk on her face. The surprised Paige stays quiet, clearly eager to wait and see if something exciting is going to happen. Gavin shoots Blyss a glare and again tries to say something, but Blyss is quick to cover his lips with her hand.
Blyss Lockhart - Shush, Gavin. That’s enough. I’ve heard you loud and clear how you feel about our match tonight. There’s no point repeating. I know you’re not ready.
The smile on her face now widens, already enjoying what she knows will be his response. Gavin scoffs at her statement while shaking his head.
Gavin Grimes - You really do think you know everything, don’t you? Well newsflash, Blyss, you don’t know shit because if you did, you would know that no matter what’s going on in my life, I’m always ready. My body of work shows that much, does yours?
His serious demeanor doesn’t go away as his eyes stay laser focused on Blyss. She takes a step towards him, trying to look as intimidating as she can.
Blyss Lockhart - Oh but I do know everything. I know everything about you. And I know what you’re going to do tonight because I know exactly what’s going on in your head right now. You expect to show up here in IWF, in MY turf, and what you say, beat me as quickly as possible? You dream too much, Gavin.
She reaches out to ruffle his hair as if he were a little kid and laughs. Gavin then takes a quick step back with a angry look on his face.
Gavin Grimes - What the hell are you trying to do? Stay out of MY space until the match, Blyss, or else I’m going to drop you on your head right here and now and there won’t even be a match. I’m dead serious.
Gavin glares at Blyss and his hands clench, making it obvious that he’s ready to fight, right here and now. At that, she laughs but it only offends him even more as he steps up to her. She immediately draws back on instinct but then stands her ground as she glares back at him. The camera shows the intense staredown for a few seconds before the scene cuts away.
Corey - Our main event of the evening will be those two meeting head to head... and what a match that's shaping up to be.
Johnny - That comes later tonight, but before that, we get ourselves a little bit of tag team action!
Rachel O'Reilly - The following contest is a tag team contest scheduled for one fall to a finish! Introducing first...
The abrupt and rough riff of "Sonne" by Rammstein echoes throughout the arena. The lights in the arena begin to die down, casting darkness over the crowd. The sounds of thunder and lightning pick up and the lighting reflects that. The loud riff comes to an end and silence falls over. The crowd resonate their respect for the woman who is coming out as the countdown begins.
[big]"ᴇɪɴs, ᴢᴡᴇɪ, ᴅʀᴇɪ, ᴠɪᴇʀ, ғᴜɴғ, sᴇᴄʜs, sɪᴇʙᴇɴ, ᴀᴄʜᴛ, ɴᴏɪɴ, ᴀᴜs." [/big]
As "Aus" is said, Artemis Kaiser makes her way from the back. Her face is hidden by a shadow cast by her Greg Jackson hoodie. She is followed by three men, holding up flags. The man on the farthest left holds up a Canadian flag. The man on the farthest right holds up a forest green flag that bears in white "PARAGON BJJ". Finally, the man in the center holds up proudly a black flag with "KAISER" etched in bold, robust lettering. Artemis stretches a bit, before removing the hood. Artemis' face bears eye black as she glares down the crowd. She soaks in their hatred, faintly grinning as the crowd chants obscenities.
The three men begin to march their way down the ramp, followed by Artemis. Artemis does not respond to the fans as she gets close to them, somewhat mocking their contempt. As she reaches the center of the ramp, Aldrige makes the call. Knowing that he is about to, Artemis stops, lowering her head. It is as if she locked herself away in her thoughts for a moment, removing herself from reality. The three men still hold their flags up in silent pride.
[big]"Hɪᴇʀ ᴋᴏᴍᴍᴛ ᴅɪᴇ Sᴏɴɴᴇ."[/big]
The fans yell out the lyrics to the song as Artemis makes her way down the ramp. The march is proud, signified by Artemis’ stunning silence and trance-like state. She stops on the ramp, lowering her head to the ground. Artemis locks herself in her own thoughts, awaiting the announcer's call. The three men stop, surrounding Artemis slightly, eyeing only the ring.
Artemis raises her head, roaring out a cry of fury and war. She continues to pump herself up as she makes her way to the end of the ramp. In a choreographed fashion, the three men separate, allowing Artemis through. She unzips her jacket and acts as if she was about to throw it into the crowd, but instead hands it off to the man holding the Canadian flag. In exchange for the hoodie, she takes the flag. She then gives a vain look to the audience again, before leaping onto the ring apron.
She spreads out the flag, showing her pride in her country and his disdain towards America. She wraps the flag around her shoulders momentarily before entering the ring. She methodically walks around the ring with the flag spread out, establishing her presence. As she concludes her preparations, she leans in her corner, holding the Canadian flag close to her form. She then awaits for the match to begin.
Rachel O'Reilly - From St. Pearl, Newfoundland, Canada... weighing tonight at 135 pounds... she is The God of Anger... this is ARTEMIS KAISER!!
Johnny - This chick scares me.
Corey - This chick is awesome. Where was she when IWF was first around?
The screech of a guitar’s feedback over an amazing amp shakes the arena. The lights that brightly illuminate everything fade to nothing, submerging the whole crowd in total darkness. Smoke begins to pollute the stage as finally Gary Clark Jr.’s “Numb” begins to play. The heavy guitar instrumentals with the blaring drum is a clear onset to the large cloud of smoke. A single spotlight creates the shadow of Cameron Kaiser.
He steps out of the smoke with a cigarette on his mouth and a pair of shades on. Loosely upon his shoulders is the infamous black and red trench coat that he commonly wears. He takes a long drag of the cigarette before jetting out a line of smoke. It merges in with the congregation behind him. Within the smoke, hands reach out for Cameron, trying to grab onto his form. The shadowy appendages associate themselves with the cultist mindset that Cameron has. The man ignores their attempts and begins his way down the ramp.
Cameron makes it halfway down the ramp, allowing the smoke to completely blanket him. The hands that stalked him had reached him, wrapping themselves around his form. Cameron soon comes from the smoke, jacket off. He only stands there in his wrestling attire at the edge of the ramp. He takes a look towards both sides before ditching his cigarette and stomping it out. He enters the ring, sliding under the rope. He sits there for a moment, before getting to his feet.
He stands centerstage, allowing the smoke to circle around him. The spotlight blasts upon him, casting a shadow. Cameron simply stands there, foreboding. Eventually, the smoke dissipates and the lights comes back to normal. Cameron takes off his shades, glaring at nothingness. He heads to his corner and begins to stretch. With his back turned to everything, he awaits for the match to begin.
Rachel O'Reilly - Her tag team partner for tonight... he hails from Red Bay, Newfoundland, Canada and weighs in tonight at 240 pounds... he is The First Son, he is The Godslaying Beast, he is CAMERON KAISER!!
Corey - Seriously. Where were these two for IWF's first run??
Johnny - Control your violence erection, Casey. The match hasn't even started!
Corey - This is gonna be a goddamn bloodbath.
”One Girl Army” by Five Iron Frenzy hits the P.A system and the fans boo, mostly because wrestling fans hate both ska and Christian music ...though they aren't fond of the woman who is about to come out to the ring either. A series of boos can be heard as “The Crippler Next Door” walks out from behind the curtain with her arms out in celebration of herself. She has a wonderful smile as she stops at the edge of the rampway, you would think she was posing for a high end magazine. She is wearing a black cowl over her complicated green ring gear. As she holds her pose her manager, Syxx Gibbler makes her way out behind her with a look of confidence in her client. In Syxx's arms is an i-pad she uses to take notes and do research during the match. Syxx stops behind Aurora Croft as she undoes her cowl. Croft tosses it to the ground as she holds her head up high with an elegant smile and her arms up to the heavens. She makes her way down to the ring with Syxx in tow.
Once at the end of the walkway, she holds her arms out and spins around as fireworks go off from the ramp. Syxx claps her client on as she does this. With confidence in her victory, she walks up the steel steps. Aurora enters between the ropes as Syxx follows behind her, but once in the ring, she demands the microphone from the ring announcer. Aurora stands in the middle of the ring as her music dies down and Syxx stands in front of her with the microphone. While Syxx begins announcing her stats, Aurora has her head up high and is looks dead serious.
Syxx Gibbler - Ladies and gentlemen, people who do not have their own money and thus do not matter in the slightest, I bring to you the woman who is going to be leaving bodies in her wake on the way to the top of Insurgency Wrestling; I bring you a Gold Medalist, an international Soccer Star, an accomplished MMA Fighter and YOUR FUTURE INSURGENCY WRESTLING CHAMPION OF THE WORLD. Weighing in at one hundred twenty eight pounds and hailing from Sydney Australia, she is “God's Favorite Wrestler,” she is “The Crippler Next Door” ...she is my client, Aurora Croft.
A charming smile crosses Aurora's face as she outstretches her arms and spins in place in major celebration of her excellence as her manager claps her on. Syxx exits the ring as Aurora stretches in preparation for her match.
Johnny - Not exactly the most humble competitor we've seen here in Insurgency, this Miss Croft.
Corey - She's a gold medalist, John, you shut your whore mouth.
Johnny - Wh-.. why always with the language? Why is that necessary?
Corey - Fuck you.
Warrior is shouted over the PA system as Harley walks out. Warrior by Havana Brown starts up, blasting throughout the arena. She stops at the top of the ramp and looks around a smirk on her face. She starts down the ramp, waving to the fans who wave at her and call out to her. She reaches the ring steps and climbs them, walking along the ring apron on the outside of the ropes. She reaches the center of that side of the ring before she decides to sit down on the second rope, lifting the top rope up, ducking under it and stepping into the ring. She makes her way towards her corner, looking around at those in attendance with a smile on her face.
Rachel O'Reilly - And her tag team partner tonight... from Las Vegas, Nevada... weighing in tonight at 123 pounds... she is HARLEY! JO! QUINZEL!!
Johnny - The lovely lady friend of James Shark, making her professional debut here in Insurgency.
Corey - And what great luck, she's teaming with an Olympic GOLD MEDALIST!
Johnny - Two minutes ago you were jumping all over the Kaisers!
Corey - I CAN HAVE FAVORITES, JOHN.
Adam Powell spends a little longer than perhaps he should patting down the Kaisers, but seems satisfied, and calls for the bell.
ARTEMIS KAISER & CAMERON KAISER
AURORA CROFT & HARLEY JO QUINZEL
[Ding Ding Ding]
Cameron Kaiser and Aurora Croft kick the match off. At ringside, Syxx Gibbler examines her i-pad, shouting at Aurora to shoot for the legs. Cameron stands, center ring, never taking his eyes off Croft as she circles him. As she ends behind him, Cameron turns his unblinking gaze to Harley, standing in the corner, who grits her teeth, gripping the ropes a little tighter. Aurora shoots for Cameron's legs, looking for a takedown. Cameron remains unmoving, his stance cemented in place. Aurora backs off, looking to Syxx, who motions towards her legs. Aurora cocks back and sends a vicious kick to Cameron's side. The Kaiser brother stumbles slightly, looking down at the pink mark left across his ribs by the kick. He frowns slightly, nodding, and turns his attention back to Aurora. She sends a second kick, directed at the same spot. Cameron catches her leg, twisting the ankle, causing Croft to fall to the mat, trying to break free. She kicks frantically with her free leg as Cameron wrenches on the ankle, wrapping his own legs around hers. Aurora cries out in pain, scrambling, trying to reach the ropes.
Johnny - Right from the get-go, Cameron Kaiser wasting no time.
Corey - He lured her right in, and she fell for it. Already, Aurora Croft in trouble.
Outside the ring, Syxx looks at the referee, whose back is turned, checking for the submission. Syxx pushes the rope towards Aurora, who grasps it. Gibbler immediaely screams for the referee, who calls for Cameron to break the hold.
Cameron rolls away from Aurora before the disqualification. He casually makes his way to his corner, tagging in Artemis. The female Kaiser steps between the ropes, smiling, exposing her sharp teeth. As Aurora looks to use the ropes for leverage, Artemis sends a sharp kick to the back of her knee. She follows up with a second kick to Croft's thigh, and an elbow which collides with the side of Croft's skull. Croft is rocked, leaning heavily against the ropes. Artemis sneers, slapping Croft, waking her up. She grabs Croft by the neck, half-dragging her to Harley in the corner. Croft reaches for the tag, which Harley accepts. Artemis throws Aurora to the corner in disgust, motioning for Harley to get into the ring. The crowd roars as Harley Jo steps in.
Johnny - She's been trained by James Shark and now she's here, in the same territory that helped make James Shark a household name.
Corey - Who's dating him? Her or you? Shut up and watch the match.
Artemis moves in, ready to throw more vicious strikes. Harley manages to dodge the first kick, and comes back, sending a tough kick of her own. Harley shoots in, catching Artemis by the legs, but the latter shoves her away. Harley steps in, looking for an elbow. Artemis grabs her, taking her down to the canvas with a perfectly executed arm drag. Artemis gets to the ground, raining brutal blows on Harley, who finally manages to pull Kaiser in close, preventing the onslaught. Artemis struggles for a moment, until Harley wriggles free, getting to her feet. Artemis stands, staring back across the ring at her opponent.
Corey - Booooring. I wanna see blood!
Johnny - This is an art, what these women are doing. This is technical mastery, two competitors well-trained in the art.
Corey - Shut up Johnny.
Harley steps in closer to Artemis, then immediately hops back, narrowly avoiding a lightning kick from Kaiser. Harley darts in again, and again just escapes a vicious kick. She slowly circles her opponent, who eyes Cameron in the corner, studying the match, watching Harley's every move. Harley moves in a third time. Artemis fires off a third kick, which Harley ducks, grabbing Artemis's other leg and taking her to the mat. This time, it's Harley's turn, bringing her fist down on the smaller woman. Artemis throws Harley off, and Harley scrambles to her feet. Artemis charges Harley, who catches her square in the jaw with a spinning heel kick.
Corey - Ouch!
Johnny - There's that vicious Harley Heel, and I think Kaiser is stunned.
Harley quickly drops to the mat, hooking the leg.
Artemis forces a shoulder up, shaking the cobwebs out of her head. She reaches to her mouth, bleeding from a hard bite to her lip as a result of Harley's kick. Artemis darts in without hesitation, grabbing Harley by the hair and driving her knees repeatedly to her torso. Harley raises her arms, blocking the knees as best she can. Artemis throws Harley towards the corner. Harley hits it hard and quickly escapes before Artemis can follow up with an elbow. Rather, Kaiser leaps forward, driving a foot to Harley's skull. Quinzel is rocked, and falls against the ropes. Artemis grabs Harley by the legs, dragging her center ring where she attempts a pin. Powell drops for the count.
Harley gets her shoulder up. Artemis frowns, but stands, slowly. She eyes Cameron, standing in the corner, and reaches for a tag. As Cameron steps between the ropes, Harley staggers to her feet, brain still rattled from the vicious kick from Artemis. Harley looks to her own corner to find Aurora Croft standing at ringside, chatting strategy with Syxx Gibbler. Harley takes a deep breath and turns back to Cameron, who stands, intimidating as ever, in the center of the ring. Harley takes a vastly different approach to Aurora, and instead retreats away from Cameron. She slowly backs to the corner, climbing to the first, then the second rope. She dives a Cameron, whose had plenty of time to come up with a counterattack. He's able to catch the tiny woman out of midair, lifting her for a powerbomb. Harley appears to have expected this, as she hooks her legs around Cameron's neck and falls backwards, taking Kaiser off balance and to his knees. Harley immediately detaches, and instead wraps her legs around Cameron's waist and her arms around his neck.
Johnny - Harley's almost got that guillotine choke locked in. This could be bad for Cameron Kaiser.
Cameron graps Harley's legs, preventing her from locking around his waist fully. He slowly stands, and Harley is forced to relingquish the hold. Cameron stomps hard on Harley's leg, forcing a yelp of pain from the rookie. He lifts Harley to her feet, and is greeted with a sharp elbow to the ribs, right over the same spot Aurora had targeted at the beginning of the match. Cameron grunts, releasing Harley as his side is met with the blow. Harley seizes advantage, turning on her heel and delivering a devastating heel kick straight to Cmaeron's jaw. He's rocked, momentarily stunned by the blow, but too large to be floored by it. Harley races to the ropes, rebounding off and leaping into the air, meeting Cameron with a second heel to the jaw. Cameron stumbles back, hitting the ropes and bouncing back to a standing position. Harley races to the ropes once more, looking for a third heel. As she leaps to the air, Cameron lurches forward, catching her with a lariat out of nowhere that flips Harley Jo flat on her back.
Corey - Where did THAT come from?
Johnny - This is how it's been the whole match. Every time Harley gets some momentum going, the Kaiser's flip it right back to them, and I can't help but think it's the doing of that man right there.
Cameron drops down, and goes for a pin.
Powell is about to bring his hand down for a three count. Harley gets her shoulder up, but it doesn't matter, as the referee is dragged from the ring by Syxx Gibbler. Powell argues with Gibbler, pointing at the ring where Harley crawls to the apron and tags in Aurora. Powell makes a motion to get back into the ring, but Syxx grabs his shoulder. She cocks back to strike the referee, but a flying fist out of nowhere floors her as Artemis soars in, knocking her out cold with a superman punch. Artemis looks down at Syxx, then motions the referee back into the ring as she returns to the apron.
Corey - And that's it for Gibbler, I think.
Johnny - Serves her right! If you want to get involved in a match like this, you can't be afraid to take some punishment.
In the ring, Aurora flies off the ropes, leaping for a crossbody. Cameron catches her in mid-air, but stumbles back a couple steps, towards his corner. Artemis slaps his shoulder, tagging herself in, but doesn't enter the ring. Cameron throws Aurora to the floor, stalking his opponent. Croft grasps at Cameron's legs, using him for leverage as she gets to her feet. She throws a desperation punch, connecting with Cameron's jaw. Kaiser stumbles again, leaning against the ropes opposite his corner. Aurora moves in, laying a series of punches into his midsection. She races to the opposite end of the ring, rebounding off the ropes, charging towards Cameron, and-
Corey - Falcon PUNCH!
Johnny - I don't think Aurora ever saw that tag!
Aurora is taken down with a second superman punch from Artemis Kaiser, who has finally made her move. Artemis knees next to the fallen Croft, smiling at the blood that drips from her nose. She grabs Aurora's arm and head, cranking back, locking in her patented armlock crossface. At the opposite end of the ring, Cameron stands in Harley's way, preventing the save.
Johnny - That's it. AK-93, this is over.
Sure enough, within moments, Croft slaps the mat, tapping out emphatically. Adam calls for the bell.
[Ding Ding Ding]
Rachel O'Reilly - Your winners... ARTEMIS and CAMERON KAISER!!
Artemis refuses to let up, keeping the hold locked in, until finally Cameron grips her shoulder, and the woman relinquishes the hold. She sneers at the fallen Croft.
Corey - I saw blood. I'm satisfied.
Johnny - A big win for the Kaisers here at Insurgency's return. Phenomenal display of ability. And Harley Jo, maybe not the debut she was hoping for, but you can't say she didn't give it her all.
Corey - Holy shit, are you just going to kiss the ass of everyone who competes tonight?
Johnny - .....I've got word of a development backstage. Let's take a look.
The camera cuts to Chuck Matthews, sitting in his office, staring at the screen as Resurgence continues. A knock at the door brings him out of his train of thought.
Chuck Matthews - It's open.
Ryan Apollos walks into the shot, looking ready to compete.
Ryan Apollos - You summoned me?
Chuck Matthews - How you feeling?
Ryan frowns, narrowing his eyes at Chuck, scanning for any signs of what his plan might be.
Ryan Apollos - ...fine. Why?
Chuck Matthews - You've got yourself a big match tonight.
Ryan Apollos - Yeah. Dex Jacobs. Final IWF Champ.
Chuck Matthews - You feeling ready?
Ryan Apollos - What's your game here, Matthews?
Chuck smirks, chuckling to himself.
Chuck Matthews - Are we on last name terms now? Oh come on, we've got history, amigo-
Ryan Apollos - Bad history.
Chuck Matthews - What about Fallout? Didn't I get you into the IWF Championship match?
Ryan Apollos - And then ruined it for me.
Chuck Matthews - Haven't I always pushed for you to get moved up the chain?
Ryan Apollos - When it benefitted you. How does this benefit you? Why me against Jacobs?
Chuck's smug grin disappears. He steps closer to Apollos and when he speaks, his voice is soft, almost a low growl.
Chuck Matthews - You want to know why? Because he's the new blood. You were with IWF since Day. Fucking. One. You ARE Original IWF. You bled for the Original IWF. Dex Jacobs? Who the fuck was Dexter Jacobs when IWF was under Casey and MacDonald? Who the fuck was Dexter Jacobs when IWF was under Dillinger? Under Hawk? Dexter Jacobs is a product of Fury. He's a product of the IWF that wasn't. The IWF that never should have been.
Chuck takes a breath, calming his nerves.
Chuck Matthews - Fact is, the history books say he was IWF Champion. I can't take that away from him. But this is not his IWF. This is not the 'new' IWF. This is MY IWF. This is the company that I rebuilt, from the ground up.
Chuck looks down his nose at Apollos.
Chuck Matthews - What I want, Apollos... is for you to go out there tonight and break every damn bone in Dexter Jacobs' body. I want you to wipe him out of IWF and teach him that these 'IWF 2.0' guys don't hold fucking candle to what IWF used to be.
Apollos looks at Chuck thoughtfully. Finally, his face breaks into a small smile.
Ryan Apollos - And what's in it for me?
Chuck steps away, straightening his jacket.
Chuck Matthews - You know me, Ryan. I'm a man of my word. You do me this favor, and I'll absolutely make it worth your while.
Apollos nods, looking pensive as the camera cuts back to ringside.
Corey - THAT'S the Chuck Matthews I know!
Johnny - Dex Jacobs talked all week about how he was overlooked and ignored... you think that was intentional?
Corey - Listen to me, John. That man is a TWO-TIME IWF Champion. It doesn't matter who was in charge of the company when it happened, the IWF Champ is the best wrestler in the world. Period. That's what IWF is.
Johnny - Well... be that as it may, it seems that our "esteemed" new owner is right back to his old schemes... and this time, at Dex Jacobs' expense.
Corey - That match comes later tonight. Up next we get a No DQ contest, courtest of that 'old schemer' you just mentioned.
Johnny - This match has about six months in the making. It's almost six months to the day that these two competitors last met face to face in the ring.
Corey - Seriously how do you know this shit?
Johnny - Resarch, Corey. Research. AND there’s been building tension over these last six months since Joey beat Kenzie in Inferno Wrestling.
Corey - And now we got ourselves a No DQ match!
Johnny - You mentioned that.
Corey - IT'S EXCITING! That's why Chuck is the Smartest Man in Wrestling!
Distorted noises hit the PA system, the lights blinking to darkness. A few red, pink and white spotlights flash against the crowd while their attention moved towards the stage. The camera focused while the heavy guitar of "Break Out" by The Letter Black flared over the sound system, and once the inspirational vocals joined the heavy guitar riffs and the rhythmic drum beats, the crowd erupted as a woman walked out onto the stage with an excited smile.
Kenzie Rydell gave special attention to the fans in the high seats, pointing in that direction with a wide grin. Scurrying to her left, she said something inaudible to the fans in attendance, giving a few of them high-fives. Moving on to the right, she told them something else, high-fiving a few lucky Insurgency fans who watched her quickly recoil to the center of the ramp again.
The woman's focus changed suddenly, shaking the innocent thoughts away. Determined expression crossing her face replacing the usual jovial demeanor, she stepped forward and pursed her lips. Breaking out into a run, she sprinted towards ringside and slid underneath the bottom rope, effortlessly hopping back to her feet again. The crowd continued to roar down appreciation for the young fighter, watching as she rested on the ropes near her turnbuckle, bouncing back and forth on the heels of her feet while the song faded into audio obscurity.
Johnny - Kenzie looks ready to go to war.
Corey - And I’m sure that’s what Joey Miles is going to bring her… A war.
The Weeknd's "Glass Table Girls" hits. After a few seconds and the beat kicks in, Joey walks backwards through the curtain with his arms spread wide. He stands on the stage, staying in this pose as the music continues.
"Bring the 707 out.
Bring the 707 out.
Bring the 707 out.
Bring the 707 out.
Bring the 707 out.
The lyrics begin as Miles spins around, keeping his arms out as he does so. He begins walking to the ring, letting his arms slowly glide down to his sides. Miles ignores the audience as he makes his way down the ramp, heading towards the steps as he does so. He slaps the top of the steps with his left hand and then jogs up them, reaching the apron with an almost lazy dance, before entering the ring. Inside the squared circle, Miles spins over to the nearest corner and leans backwards into it, slumping down a bit as he stares across the ring at Kenzie Rydell.
Johnny - Here we go, one of the most anticipated matches of the night is about to get under way!
The referee now calls for the bell.
[Ding Ding Ding]
The match is underway and Kenzie charges at Joey Miles right away. Joey steps out of her way and Kenzie bounces off of the ropes and back towards Joey before leaping in the air and nailing a crossbody splash.
Johnny - Kenzie on the aggressive!
Corey - That's what I want to see! MORE VIOLENCE!
Joey bounces back to his feet quick but Kenzie is quick to start striking him with elbow shots to his head before also nailing him with several knee shots to his gut. Kenzie then hits Joey with a Russian leg sweep before going for the pin.
Johnny - Miles kicks out!
Corey - Too early for that. Where’s the violence at anyway? This is a no DQ match!
Kenzie lifts up Joey but he counters and grabs her then Irish whips Rydell to the corner. Kenzie's back hits the turnbuckle hard and she stumbles out of the corner. Miles leaps in the air and nails a dropkick, knocking Kenzie to the canvas. Miles then turns around and does a standing moonsault onto Kenzie and goes for another pin.
Corey - Kick out by Kenzie again! What a competitor!
Johnny - It appears that Joey is attempting to win this one cleanly.
Corey - I wouldn’t say that, I’m sure these two are going to get down and dirty here soon.
Miles begins to pick up Rydell again but Kenzie musters up some strength and pushes Miles off. Miles stumbles back and Kenzie walks up to him and nails a body chop. Kenzie then slaps Miles in the chest with another body chop, and another, and another until he's backed into the corner and Kenzie nails one last body chop. Kenzie now grabs Miles's head and runs forward before leaping up and dropping, nailing a running bulldog.
Corey - Great series of chops by Kenzie followed by a classic running bulldog.
Johnny - Looks like Kenzie is gaining the upperhand here.
Corey - She is but this one could go either way, Johnny.
Kenzie quickly slides out of the ring before kneeling down next to it and looking under it for weapons. Kenzie pulls out a trash can and throws it into the ring. She then pulls out a kendo stick and a chair and throws both of those into the ring as well. Kenzie then pulls out an 2X4 with barbed wire wrapped around an evil grin runs over her face as he looks at it.
Johnny - What the? It appears Kenzie Rydell was prepared for this one.
Corey - I wonder if she had a feeling that Chuck was going to make this a DQ match or maybe she had planned on using that on Joey whether it was or not.
Johnny - He has been picking on Kenzie for almost eight months now, so it wouldn’t surprise me.
Corey - Exactly.
Kenzie slides into the ring with the 2X4 wrapped in barbed wire but as she gets up, Joey nails her in the back with a kendo stick which causes Kenzie to fall to her knees and drop the barbed wire 2X4. Joey hits Kenzie over and over again in the back with the kendo stick before finally nailing her directly in the back of the head with a shot so hard that it breaks the kendo stick in half and it causes Kenzie to drop lifelessly to the mat.
Johnny - Oh my God!
Corey - He just killed Kenzie! STRAIGHT MURDERED!
Johnny - This doesn’t look good, we may EMT’s when this is over.
Joey goes for the cover and the referee starts the count.
Corey - RYDELL KICKS OUT! SHE KICKS OUT!!
Johnny - WOW!
Corey - She really wants this one badly.
Joey looks at the referee in disbelief and he shakes his head. Joey grabs Kenzie and lifts her up from the mat and whips her to the turnbuckle which Kenzie collides into with a thud back first. Miles charges at Kenzie and leaps into the air and goes for a flying clothesline but Kenzie ducks out of the way and Joey’s face collides with the top turnbuckle. Kenzie quickly grabs the trash can she had thrown into the ring earlier and she puts it on top of Joey before grabbing the chair on the ground. Kenzie begins to hit the trash can that is engulfing Joey’s upper body over and over again with the steel chair.
Corey - What a turn of events! Kenzie has Joey Miles exactly where she wants him!
Johnny - We’re seeing a ruthless side of Kenzie Rydell, you can really tell that she’s doing this for herself!
Corey - She’s not trying to conform to what people think she should be and I love it.
Kenzie drops the chair and climbs up the turnbuckle and as Joey Miles blindly walks around with the trash can on top of him., Kenzie leaps off and hits a dropkick to the top part of the trashcan and Miles crashes to the ground with the dented trash can still engulfing his upper body.
Johnny - Kenzie Rydell is taking out the trash!
Corey - I dare you to tell Joey Miles he's trash.
Kenzie takes the trash can off of Joey and goes for the cover.
Johnny - Miles kicks out! How did he muster up the strength!?
Corey - I’ve got to say, I’m impressed by the willpower of both of these competitors.
Johnny - Both of them want this match.
Corey - Take it from me, Johnny. Hatred can be a powerful motivator.
Johnny - You'd be the leading expert on that, I'd suspect.
Kenzie picks up Miles and tries to whip him to the ropes but Miles manages to counter and whips Kenzie into the ropes. Kenzie runs towards Miles and Miles attempts a clothesline but Kenzie ducks under it. Miles then turns around and Kenzie tries to go for a superkick but Joey ducks under it. As Kenzie turns around, she’s met by the Sudden Death Superkick and she flies backwards into the referee which sends him flying through the ropes and to the outside.
Johnny - Superkick! Straight to the throat! That's nasty.
Corey - I suppose that’s why it’s called the Sudden Death Superkick.
Joey goes for the cover but the referee is outside of the ring. The fans chant a ‘1, 2, 3’ count and Joey gets up off of the unconscious Kenzie and yells at the referee to get in the ring.
Corey - Poor Adam. He was doing so well tonight.
Johnny - These matches are a dangerous place for referees and they need to be careful.
Joey frustratingly slides out of the ring and tries to wake up the referee. The referee begins to stir and gets up on his hands and knees as Joey yells at him to get in the ring. Joey hasn’t been paying attention to Kenzie Rydell inside of the ring whatsoever and she’s starting to stir. Joey is still trying to talk the referee up and he decides to just grab him and slide him into the ring. Before he knows it, Kenzie Rydell is running off of the ropes and across the ring before leaping over the ropes and nailing a plancha onto Joey Miles, sending both competitors crashing to the outside mat and the fans begin to go nuts.
Corey - Kenzie Rydell is putting it all on the line here tonight, folks.
Johnny - You can tell she really wants this.
The two competitors both lie on the ground outside of the ring and Kenzie is the first one to stir. She gets up to her feet and sees that Joey is still down. Kenzie climbs up on top of the guard railing that separates the crowd and ring area.
Corey - What is she up to?
Johnny - Looks like she wants to perform some kind of aerial move on Joey.
Corey - BUT LOOK! JOEY IS UP ON HIS FEET!
As Kenzie tries to stand up on the railing, Joey charges at her and leaps up in the air and nails a spear on Kenzie, sending the two over the railing and into the front row crowd which causes ‘Holy Shit’ chants to fill the arena.
Corey - What a move by Joey! What is going on?
Johnny - I smell lawsuit!
Corey - CALL APOLLOS'S LAWYERS!
Johnny - That joke stopped being funny five years ago.
Kenzie and Joey start to get up and they end up throwing left and right blows to each other while making their way through the crowd. Joey then pushes Kenzie away before taking a standing fan’s chair and folding it up. Kenzie charges at Joey but he clocks her right in the head with a filthy chair shot that can be heard throughout the arena.
Corey - Hey! Those are the expensive chairs damn it!
Johnny - What do you care?
Corey - The more he has to spend on chairs, the less he has to spend on my contract for FALLOUT, LIVE THIS SEPTEMBER!
Johnny - That wasn't necessary.
Kenzie crashes to the ground and begins to roll down the stairs until she hits the bottom and crashes into the guard railing. Joey sets the chair back up and smiles and at the fan and gives him a thumbs up before he makes his way back down to Kenzie.
Corey - What a gentleman that Joey Miles guy is!
Johnny - It was a nice move! Most guys would’ve just dropped the chair but I don’t know how comfortable that chair will be with Kenzie’s head indented in it.
Joey picks Kenzie up off of the ground and the camera can now see that Kenzie’s face is full of blood from the chair shot that she received from Joey. Miles throws Rydell over the guard railing and then hops over it himself. He then picks up the seemingly unconscious Kenzie and slides her into the ring and she rolls a few feet in onto her back.
Corey - I think Kenzie is out cold.
Johnny - Astute observation.
Corey - Damn skippy.
Joey looks under the ring and he then starts to pull out a ladder and it’s very tall. He sets it up outside of the ring and he then starts to climb up on top of it. He gets to the top of the ladder and looks down at the bloodied Kenzie Rydell. Joey then leaps off and looks to be going for a Frog Splash but Kenzie was playing possum as she grabs a hold of the barbed wire 2X4 from earlier in the match; she stands up and nails Joey right in the head with the weapon right before he crashed down onto the canvas.
Johnny - KENZIE WAS PLAYING POSSUM!
Corey - She just nailed Joey in the head with that barbed wire 2x4! He’s gotta be out!
Johnny - I think Kenzie is going for the pin.
Kenzie slowly crawls towards Joey, who is also now bleeding from his head, and she goes for the pin.
Corey - KICKOUT!
Johnny - Well I’ll be damned!
Kenzie looks at the referee, holding up three fingers and pleading with him that it was a three count but he adamantly tells her it was three. Kenzie looks exhausted as she wipes the blood out of her eyes. Kenzie picks up the barbed wire 2X4 and charges towards Joey but he uses the last bit of his strength to roll out of the ring. Kenzie soon follows but as she gets out of the ring, Joey is nowhere to be seen.
Corey - Where in the hell did Joey Miles disappear to?
Johnny - I have no idea but we have a match to finish! There’s no time for hide and seek!!
Kenzie spins in a circle while looking confused as to where Joey might have went. She drops the 2X4 and peaks under the ring apron and as she does, she suddenly gets sprayed by a fire extinguisher which sends her reeling backwards. Joey then appears from under the ring with the fire extinguisher in hand and he sprays Kenzie again, completely blinding her.
Corey - Well… This is new!
Johnny - I wonder if the fire extinguisher chemicals will infect Kenzie’s head wound somehow.
Corey - I’m sure Kenzie will receive the best medical attention after the match!
Joey picks up Kenzie and drags her to the ring before sliding her in. He gingerly slides in before pinning Kenzie and the referee starts the count.
Johnny - Kickout by Rydell! She won’t quit yet!
Corey - Joey needs to do something big here to finish Rydell off, there’s only so much pain the human body can take and I think she’s at her end.
Johnny - I guess we’ll see about that.
Joey slaps the mat in frustration before sliding out of the ring. He looks under the ring and grabs a chair before sliding back into the ring. Kenzie begins to stir and and Joey stalks over her with the chair.
Johnny - This doesn’t look good for Kenzie.
Corey - I knew Joey would pull through!
Johnny - You were saying Kenzie to me all day yesterday!
Corey - I lied!
Kenzie makes it to her feet and Joey swings the chair at her but she ducks under it. Joey turns around and Kenzie superkicks the chair right into Joey’s face, which causes him to crash to the mat.
Corey - What a counter! I had no doubts in Kenzie!
Johnny - Yeah… Riiiight!
Kenzie grabs the chair off the ground and places it on top of Joey Miles’ chest before she begins to climb up the turnbuckle before reaching the top.
Johnny - It looks like Kenzie is ready to finish this one out!
Corey - This could be it, Johnny!
Kenzie then leaps off of the turnbuckle and nails a Phoenix Splash right onto the chair and onto Joey Miles. Kenzie bounces off of the chair and Miles and holds her rib cage as she tries to gain her bearings.
Johnny - What a Phoenix Splash!
Corey - In IWF!
Johnny - The land of the Phoenix!
Corey - I love it when things work out like that.
Kenie slowly crawls back over to Joey Miles and she drapes one arm across his chest and the referee starts the count.
[Ding Ding Ding]
Rachel O'Reilly - Here is your winner... KENZIE RYDELL!!
Corey - She did it! Kenzie Rydell beat Joey Miles!
Johnny - I don't know how, but she pulled it off! BIG win for Miss Rydell here at Resurgence!
The scene fades as Kenzie celebrates a hard-fought victory in the ring, celebrating with the fans.
