A Threat is Made!


Before Rampage goes live, we start somewhere else. A single light hangs from the cellar ceiling from a small electrical wire. It swings back and forth as if it is a pendulum in a clock keeping time. For a brief moment the light flickers off, as it returns to normal a tall and slender cloaked figure is now visible. The black silk cloak has a long hood which drapes over the figures eyes and nose.

Cloaked Figure: Hello all of PWA. Thank you for joining me this fine evening.

It is quickly noticeable that the figures voice is being distorted with some sort of machine.

Cloaked Figure: I am here to tell you that a force to be reckoned with will be returning to the PWA and bringing a deep routed hate along for the ride. And, I promise things will never be the same once the score has been settled. It will shake the PWA to its core.

Turns to walk away as if everything had been said but changing its mind it stops and turns back around.

Cloaked Figure: And Chamelion, you are the first person that will fall, this is a promise. Your sins will finally catch up to you, and you will no longer get away with what you have done.

The light flickers off once more, and as quickly as the figure appeared it was gone again. Why did it send warnings to PWA’s owner Chamelion? Who could have such hatred for him? What sins did this figure speak of? Only time will reveal what its true meaning. With the flickering of the light, the scene switches to backstage, where we find Chamelion and Phoenix having just viewed the video. Chamelion lifts a folder he was holding and opens it, and a very long sheet of paper tumbles out, the end clipped inside the folder, but the rest of the sheet is so long, it hits the concrete floor and rolls down a ways. Chamelion takes his time and re-collects the paper, while Phoenix watches amused. As he collects the end, Chamelion takes a pen and starts writing at the bottom.

Phoenix: “What is that, anyway?”

Chamelion: “The list of everyone that’s out to get me.”

Finishing writing in ‘cloaked figure’ at the bottom, which we can see names like Riona, Ian, Pohatu above it, he closes the folder and caps the pen.

Chamelion: “Okay, done. Let’s get Rampage underway!”

Chamelion trudges off, leaving Phoenix to blink after him and we head to ringside for our opening match.

Matt Rodriguez vs Scottie 'The Panther' Snow

Singles Match


The bell signaled the beginning of the match and immediately Matt was on the attack with a series of kicks that Scottie was unprepared for. Matt hit the Busaiku Knee Kick and Scottie held at his knee in pain, Matt with another Busaiku Knee Kick that Scottie was ill prepared for as the pain on his face shows. Matt lifts Scottie up and slams him with a body slam before he climbs up top and dives with a cross body landing on Scottie for the pin, but Scottie shows some guts as he kicks out at the count of two and Matt is surprised a bit, but he has heard of this guy's determination. Scottie reverses a hammerlock into one of his own and avoids a back kick from Matt to keep the hammerlock synched in tightly. Matt divvied forward to try and sling Snow out of the ring, but Scottie was able to release the hold just in time and Matt landed on his hands and knees. Scottie then delivered a horrible looking front kick, followed it up by a spinning roundhouse that missed entirely and Matt was up, with fire burning in his glare. Scottie was fierce though as he came at Rodriguez with all he had, though it wasn't enough to win the match yet. Scottie dove, but Rodriguez was able to flip him over with a back body and Scottie was fortunate enough to land on the apron while holding onto the top rope. Rodriguez looked behind him and slammed Scottie to the floor with a running forearm smash, Scottie landed on his face on the floor, but to his character got right back up and tried to get on top again. Scottie was sent back down with a suicide dive that took him and Matt out, but Scottie received the most punishment as his head slammed violently into the railing surrounding the ring. The referee began the mandatory count and was up to three when Matt pulled Scottie up and rolled him back into the ring; it appeared that Scottie was out cold.

Scottie kicked out, but mere centimeters before the final three was slapped on the canvas, Rodriguez look a bit more surprised that he was able to kick out after the dive, but he merely went on about his business of trying to defeat the former PWA World Champion. Rodriguez put Snow in the position for a piledriver, but Scottie able to counter by dropping to his knees and pulling Matt's legs out from under him. While the momentum and adrenaline was on his side, Scottie nailed a beautiful wheelbarrow driver and ran for the cover. Scottie got a two count before Matt was able to get in the ropes and stop the count, but this seemed to give Scottie more energy as he pulled Matt back up to his feet. Snow got behind Matt and appeared to have him set up for a shoulder face breaker, but either couldn't get him up and over or forgot how to perform the move, he delivered a neck breaker instead and made another cover. Scottie almost got a three count, but Matt was able to kick out in time to keep his chances of defeating Snow alive tonight. Scottie kept on the offense as he slung Matt into the ropes, but Matt reversed and sent Scottie crashing to the canvas with a big spine buster that caused Scottie to bounce back up and hold at his lower back. Matt hit the ropes and spring boarded back with a lionsault, one of his signature moves, but didn't hook the leg just yet. He lifted Scottie up and slammed him to the canvas with the move he calls Revolations; then Matt Rodriguez hooked the leg and made the cover. It was only the count that remained as the referee quickly got into position and made the count.

Winner: Matt Rodriguez 9:37

The Beast & The Virus


The crowd is buzzing as "Away" blares through the speakers announcing the arrival of "The Beast" Viktor Stone. Stone doesn't pay the fans any mind as he walks down to the ring with purpose. Stone slides under the bottom ropes and pulls a mic ot of his back pocket. He paces the ring for a moment as the music and the crowd dies down.

Stone: Where do we go from here? Huh? Just where do the fuck I go from here. I allowed a nobody like "King" Zout get the win that should be mine. Heh, Mark...you better pray to the Gods that are the Front Office because we both know who should of won that match. bet then again I bet...

"Don't you ever get tired of bitching and moaning"

To Stone and the crowd's surprise, out walk the newly crowned World Champion, Matthew "The Virus" Engel. The PWA Title rest securely on his shoulders as he struts down the aisle way and gets into the ring. Engel adjust his title as he is handed a mic.

Engel: Looks good right? Nice and shiny Vik...why don't you get a good look, because right now...this is the closet you will ever get to this title. but you know that don't you. I can see it in your eyes. I can feel the disgust coming off of you. And as much as I would love to finish listening to you explain how you should be forgiven for doing many...many stupid things, Tonight is my night and there is no place for your bitching on my show.

Stone looks shocked, as if he can't believe what he is hearing at point. But that look of shock slowly turns to one of anger as it all starts to set in.

Stone: Maybe it is because you have that piece of gold on your shoulder that is making you so brave. But this is he last place that you want to be, with that piece of Gold and Leather. So why don't you go to the back and party with the bitches in your stable.

Engel lets out a laugh as if he is amused by what Stone has said.

Engel: You know what Stone...your right about one thing...

All of the sudden, Engel pops Stone in the face with the mic.

Engel: This isn't the place to be right now.

Stone stumbles back as Engel throws off the title and begins pummeling the former IC and TV Champion. Engel lifts Stone up and slams him into the turnbuckle and starts teeing off on him. but Engel throws one punch too many and Stone wraps him up and throws him into air and onto the ground with a Spinning Belly to Belly Suplex. Viktor lets out a scream as jumps on Engel and starts to fire those MMA style elbows at the Champion. Stone picks Engel up by his hair and fires him into the ropes as Security pours down the rampway.

Stone: Son of a bitch!!!!

Stone yells as he takes Engel down with a vicious clothesline. Security hits the ring and keeps Stone from doing anything else. Engel sees the opening he needs and leaps over the security and nails Stone with brutal looking elbow to the jaw. Security finally is able to secure both men and pull them out of the ring as Engel and Stone shout at each other. The cameras pan back to the announcers who are both shocked at what just happened.

Orion vs Jacob Collins

Singles Match


With Engel ringside during Orion's first match, the bell sounds as Orion and Collins lock horns. Collins is quick with a hammerlock on Orion, but Orion reverses out of it with a flip and puts Collins in a hammerlock of his own. Orion wraps around Collins wrap and drops him down with a reverse DDT. Orion gets Collins to his feet and tosses him into the turnbuckle. Orion quickly tries for a corner splash, but Collins dodges out of the way. Orion hits the turnbuckle hard, and Collins nails Orion with some forearm smashes. Collins whips Orion into the ropes and tries for a dropkick, but Orion dodges it. Orion hits Collins in the head with a knee drop. Orion mounts Collins and unchambers lefts and rights. The ref breaks it up, and Collins gets to his feet. Orion swings, but Collins ducks and tries to sweep out Orion's legs, but Orion jumps up and dodges it. Orion nails Collins with a hard roundhouse kick that sends Collins staggering into the ropes. Orion puts a three-quarter face lock on Collins and runs up the corner turnbuckles, and jumps backwards, performing a back flip in the air, and landing face down to the mat, driving Collins back-first down to the mat. He calls this move The Overture, and scores the pin fall.

Winner: Orion in 9:12

Engel and Orion celebrate in the ring as Collins rolls to the outside and heads backstage.

Jethro's Challenge


"SUUUUUUEY!" and the subsequent "Thank God, I'm A Country Boy" hits the speakers as the crowd pops big time for the PWA Intercontinental Champion who walks from the back with the title around his waist. Jethro walks down the ramp going side to side to slap the hands of the fans on his way to the ring. He steps through the ropes and as he leans over the top rope, Jethro grabs the live microphone from Eric Emerson. The two exchange a word or two before Jethro stands up in the center of the ring; he faces the crowd on each side of the ring before standing on the PWA logo.

"Lawrence!"

Cheap pop, but then again, does Jethro really need the cheap pop? It isn't like the cheering died down at all since he came out.

"How ya'll doing here tonight!"

They let him know they are doing just fine indeed.

"Well, I didn't get a chance to record another promo since I had already left to come here and get ready for my one on one encounter with the Soul-taker Raizzor, so I figured I'd come out here and say a few words."

"Jethro! Jethro! Jethro! Jethro! Jethro! Jethro! Jethro! Jethro! Jethro!"

Jethro smiles to the crowd as he begins to pace inside the ring.

"Later tonight I get to face Raizzor in a one on one match with no title on the line, but something bigger... respect. See, he thinks it is called butt kissing, I call it being star struck. Since I can remember watching the PWA I've followed Raizzor's career, when he was a fan favorite, to the bad guy, then back and forth throughout his career. See I told myself that I wanted to be in a match with him one day, that I wanted to meet him one day, that I wanted to get inside the ring with him and just see who is the better man."

Cheers as Jethro steps to each side of the ring.

"I'm not going to lie, I thought that chance had gone out of the window and my dream match would never get to happen, because I am Jethro Hayes and he is Raizzor... eater of souls. But then I get booked in the match against him and I couldn't help it."

Jethro shrugs.

"I was star struck, no doubt about it. If you don't believe me, go and check out the promo, it is painfully obvious, but I don't really care if it is obvious; it is who I am and it is what I felt."

He shrugs again and continues his pacing.

"That was the promo, but here tonight, in this very ring... being star struck won't matter a darn. See, while I always wanted the match, I wanted to beat Raizzor and I intend to give it my best in that endeavor. Whether I am victorious or not, I will do my best and that is all I can ask of myself."

Jethro stops as he faces the announce table and those fans behind it.

"But Raizzor said some things that I want to comment on here. He said that the darkness has led him to heights that I can only imagine."

Jethro pats the PWA Intercontinental championship.

"But thanks to you fans at home and the intense match with Hunter Sullivan, this belt right here... led me to being a PWA Triple Crown Champion... something Raizzor's darkness hasn't led him to."

He quits patting the belt in favor of pacing the ring again, playing to the crowd.

"But on a more serious note, the final thing I want to address here."

Jethro stops his playing to the crowd and faces the PWA Tron.

"You all compare me to Sirus Moran, and I appreciate that. You all say that my fairness gets in the way, I appreciate that too, because it shows my willingness to keep the playing field fair."

He is intense, very serious.

"You all have mentioned that I cannot strike the final blow, I cannot disagree with that, but here is my proposal."

He leans over the top rope.

"How about each time I face a Pantheon member, their status is on the line inside the ring?"

Shock from the crowd, Jethro smiles.

"Hmmmm?"

Still smiling.

"How about if I defeat them, they are gone from The Pantheon and can no longer have any affiliation with Pantheon here in the PWA? They can't form the same group with a different name, or any thing like that. "

Jethro is still staring up the ramp.

"I know I've got to put something on the line as well, to be fair of course. So, if I lose, I don't get paid that week and we know how much that will hurt us in these days and times. so, Raizzor, what do you say?"

Jethro hands the mic back to Eric as the crowd explodes in cheers.

Jon McDaniel: What a stipulation to add to the match, if Raizzor accepts.

Brian Rentfro: The nerve of this guy, Raizzor will never accept such a match stipulation.

Jon McDaniel: And people say that Jethro couldn't deal the final blow.

Brian Rentfro: He can't.

Jon McDaniel: He hasn't yet, but he has the hammer and nails.

Rhyno vs Duff

Singles Match


The bell rang and Duff was immediately on the attack of Rhyno with a barrage of punches and kicks taking him down to the mat. Duff pulled him up to place him on the top turnbuckle where he delivered a top rope superplex that left the newcomer Rhyno dazed and confused. Duff was still on the attack as he placed a leg lock on Rhyno to try and weaken his leg. Rhyno came back after he reversed a whip on Duff and sent him into the corner. Rhyno scoop slammed Duff in the corner and he climbed for a knee drop that connected and temporarily took Duff out of commission. Rhyno then began to pound away with fists on Duff's face until the referee was forced to administer the five count. Rhyno pushed it to the limit because just as the ref was fixing to throw up the five fingers, he stopped and pulled Duff back up to his feet. It was noticeable that Duff was not feeling very well after the barrage of punches as his head was slammed repeatedly into the top turnbuckle and he was unable to fight back with any real force. Rhyno lifted Duff up with a German Suplex, but Duff was able to break his grip early and prevent the rolling German suplexes. Duff spun around and delivered a desperation right hand of his own that sent Rhyno scrambling for safety against the ropes. Duff fell back winded and trying to catch his breath. Both men charged at each other with all they had left in their system, but a double clothesline sent them both down to the canvas and the referee had began the ten count. He reached eight before Duff began to stir and the count stopped as Duff pulled Rhyno back up to his feet. He planted a stiff kick in Rhyno's midsection and followed it with a vertical Suplex and a cover that only got two as Rhyno was able to kick out, all be it feebly.

Duff pulled Rhyno back up to his feet as the crowd was getting into this match, but Rhyno planted a series of punches into Duff's ribs and midsection taking control with an even flow DDT. Rhyno went for a quick cover, but Duff was able to get his foot on the ropes after a count of only two. The crowd was behind Duff and trying to get him back in the match with a chant of "Duff", but Rhyno was not letting Duff get back into the match. Rhyno slid Duff's face across the ropes before planting a spinning fist into his face above a turnbuckle. He locked in a half-nelson on Duff and sent him down with a half-nelson bulldog to the canvas, he hooked the leg again. As before, the crowd is keeping Duff in this one as he rolled his shoulder up at the two and three quarter point of the count. Rhyno picked Duff up the mat and hooked him for a bridging Suplex, but instead he spun around slamming Duff into the canvas with a spinning DDT type move, he hooked the leg again for only a two count. The crowd's chants are getting to Duff as he kicks out quicker and with more authority. Rhyno has had enough as he pulls Duff up and shoves him into the ropes violently, Duff rebounded with a flying clothesline that took Rhyno out cleanly and solidly in the center of the ring. Duff immediately bounced up to his feet and stared out at the crowd, he looked around and nodded as he pulled Rhyno up. Duff booted him in the midsection and hit the move he calls Fuel, which is a cradle piledriver. The fans started chanting "Coil" and Duff pointed down to Rhyno on the canvas and they got louder with the chant. Duff locked in the cobra clutch cross face submission hold and Rhyno quickly tapped out for Duff to claim the victory.

Winner: Duff Côte d`Ivoire 10:56

Odd Couple?


::Backstage in the Allen Fieldhouse, we find Viktor Stone, waiting around in the parking lot for somebody... He holds in his hands a note, given to him earlier in the evening, by one of the stage hands. It simply said for him to be here at this time. He looks a little irritated...::

Stone: "I really don't have time for this shit. I got things to do and people to beat."

::A small clap can be heard behind him...::

Voice: "Tonight? Who are you targeting this time Viktor... You're not even on the card..."

Stone: "It doesn't matter on the who, all that matters is..."

::Out of the shadows, the source of the clapping is revealed... it's Riona Langly. She's wearing her leather jacket once more, the hood up...::

Riona: "That blood flows like a waterfall, right?"

::Viktor's surprise is mild. He hides it well under his mask of irritation.::

Stone: "You are the very last person I expected to see."

Riona: "I expected as much... me and you, we've never been on the best of terms. Hell, if someone were to look at all the shit that we've slung back and forth, they could say that we fucking hate each other. You've called me weak, I've called you pathetic, and each time we've gotten into the ring, we've slugged it out pretty badly..."

Stone: "Exactly...so what is with this little meeting?"

::Riona smirks... the image, combined with her hood, makes it look scary to some...::

Riona: "Viktor, I've always respected your capacity for violence. But lately, you've been directionless... You had Robinson a while back, and you were a focused machine, but since then, you've been drifting in the wind. What will it take for Viktor Stone to become the monster that we all know is lurking within you?"

Stone: "All it takes is a spot long enough for me to do my damage without having to worry about Phoenix's boy band raining on my parade. But why are you concerned about what I'm doing?"

Riona: "Because Viktor... our goals, they're alike, aren't they..."

Stone: "You could say that..."

Riona: "You... you want a chance to get at Robinson without worrying about the rest of the Pantheon getting in the way. Well, you saw what happened to Hunter at Sizzler, right?"

Stone: "Of course."

Riona: "That... it's just the beginning. The blood will flow into the gutters of the PWA and the 3 Apostles will look over them as they ask forgivness... and then, just when it looks like forgiveness may come for their sins, only then will the true agony begin. But Viktor, this war... Myself, Johnny, and Lacey... we're not enough. We may have Jethro and Ian to help, but they're not Apostles. They don't understand warfare like you and I do..."

Stone: "You want me to join your family of destruction?"

Riona: "In a word, yes. I'm offering you a path here... A focus. You've been best when you've had someone guiding the destruction. You can walk this war alone, or you can walk it with the three of us and witness the fall of the Temple of the Gods first hand."

::It doesn't take Viktor very long to think of his answer...::

Stone: "You have yourself a deal..."

::Riona smirks, a smile as grating as ever, and holds out her hand.::

Riona: "That went far smoother than I imagined..."

::Stone grabs Riona's hand and pulls her close.::

Stone: "But mark my words...if this is a set up...what you have planned for Phoenix's crew is nothing compared to what I will do to you."

::Riona nods, completely unphazed by Stone's words or menacing tone of voice...::

Riona: "Viktor, I'm alot of things. Some would call me a bitch, some would call me psychotic... They're right. But, ask yourself this... when have I ever outright lied to you?"

Stone: "Not yet...not yet..."

::Riona lets go of Viktor's hand and begins to walk off to prepare for her title defense later in the night.::

Riona: "Good to have you in the family Viktor... Time to pile the bodies to the sky as some might say."

Stone: "In more ways then one Riona...more ways then one..."

Matt Stone vs Xannon Alexander

Singles Match


The match started smoothly with a lock-up between the two. Xannon turned the situation to his advantage by grabbing Matt’s head into a Side Headlock. Matt pulled him back to the ropes, pushing Xannon by the opposite side, but he didn’t give up on his hold. They both came back in the middle and Matt tried the same thing for a second time and this one worked. Xannon bounced on the ropes, jumping over Matt and bouncing on the opposite side. When he came back, Matt went on the floor as Xannon jumped over. When he went back on his feet, Matt hooked Xannon’s arm, trying to make him flip with a Hip toss, but Xannon reversed to send Matt on the floor with a Hip toss. Matt went back on his feet, but Xannon sent him back on the floor with an Arm drag, and again, and again. The third time, Xannon kept a hold on Matt’s arm, who went back on his feet and sent Xannon to the corner before approaching and sending a few chops at him. He tried to grab Xannon’s arm to send him to the opposite corner, but Xannon had a hold on the corner and decided to pull Stone by him, only to send him outside the ring with a Back Body Drop.

-COMMERCIAL BREAK-

We come back from commercial break as we see Xannon hitting a Knee Drop on Matt’s shoulder. As he goes for an unsuccessful pin fall, we see a footage from the commercial break in which Xannon sent Matt right into the ring post and Stone falling on the floor, holding that same shoulder. Not too long after, Xannon decided to go for a submission hold, grabbing Matt’s opposite shoulder and the arm from the other side, putting his knee behind the weak shoulder and pull back. This lasted a minute as Matt screamed in pain, stumbling for both sides. He managed to get on his feet, sending a few elbows at Xannon’s gut, but Xannon stopped him with a knee to the bad shoulder. After this, Xannon walks back and charges, but Stone jumps at the right time, nailing a Dropkick on Xannon. Both were on the floor after the attack. Zach was yelling at his boss, Matt, to get to his feet, encouraging him, sorta. Both were back on their feet and Matt showed himself as the most opportunist as he went for the first strike, sending Xannon to the floor with a Clothesline, and then another one, and another one. The third time Xannon went on his feet, Matt sent him over with a Belly to Belly Suplex, quickly followed by an unsuccessful cover. However, Stone don’t give up as he only waits for Xannon to get back to his feet to go for a Swinging Neck breaker, which worked. He went back on his feet, only waiting for Xannon. However, when he charged back, Xannon was able to stop him, grabbing him in the perfect position for his Signature move, the Last Sunrise, which resulted in an almost successful cover

Xannon went back on his feet, really frustrated to see this wasn’t enough to take out the Grizzly Beer champion. He bounces on the ropes, ready to charge back with a Pele Kick, but Zach stopped him by grabbing his foot, which wasn’t noticed by the referee. Matt take advantage of the situation by going for a School Boy, but Xannon manages to kick out. Stone went back on his feet, ready to go for his finisher, the C-C-C-C-Combobreaker, but Xannon pushed him back before he could jump. Matt then ducked under Xannon and twisted, instead utilizing a reverse back breaker. Matt then dropped three elbows and lifted Xannon up and hit a jackknife power bomb. Xannon found himself in terrible shape, woozy from Matt's assault and Matt signaled again for the C-C-C-C-Combobreaker. Getting in position, Matt went to grab Xannon, but Xannon grabbed the ropes and Matt landed on his back alone. Xannon turned and went for an elbow, but Matt expertly rolled out of the way. Both men got back up and traded punches, and Xannon whopped Matt to the ropes. Matt bounced on the ropes and when he came back, Xannon jumped, sending him to the ground with his finisher, the Razorblade Kiss! Xannon covered, but Zach quietly got Matt's foot on the bottom rope. The ref stopped the count and Xannon shook his head. Picking up Matt, Xannon went for it again, but Matt rolled Xannon into a schoolboy for 2. Xannon rolled out of it and forced Matt into a reversal for 2. Both men up and Matt spun Xannon around and connected with the C-C-C-C Codebreaker! Matt covered, but only got two himself when again, a foot on the rope prevented the three!

Angry, Matt pulled Xannon up and whipped him to the turnbuckle! Xannon hit with a dull thud and Matt rushed in, but Xannon lifted himself up and hooked his legs around Matt and rolled him over into a sunset flip pin, and the shock of the move disoriented Matt just long enough for Xannon to score the 1-2-3!

Winner: Xannon Alexander

The Mavericks vs The Renegade Souljahs

Tag-Team Match


The match started off with Mark Zout for the Souljahs and Johnny Maverick for the The Mavericks. The match started off strong, showing great skill and talent among both teams. The more experienced of team of Ross and Zout played a factor halfway through the match as the two continued to pound on Gary, not letting him make a tag. But what usually happens in a situation like this is underestimating your opponent. Gary was able to fight back reasonably well, and hit’s Ross with a full nelson slam. Both teams trade in partners and the match continues its starting to favor the Mavericks. Johnny weakens up Ross who gets tagged back in. Johnny knocks him to the ground with a Russian leg sweep and tags his brother back in. Just like in practice Gary slams Ross’s head into the mat with a crucifix pin but before he can make the cover, The Pantheon come down in a drove and attack both sides. Engel on Zout, Chamelion on Ross, Hunter attacks Johnny and Orion pastes Gary to the canvas. The ref has no choice but to call for the double DQ as Pantheon sends a very clear message to all four men!

Winner: No contest

Challenge Accepted, and a change is made!


We go backstage to find the Pantheon in a heated debate over Jethro’s recent challenge.

Engel: There is no way in hell I’m going along with that hick’s challenge.

Hunter: I agree, it’s just plain stupid; all it would take is for one of his buddies to screw us over and that’s it!

Wilkie: I just got here, I ain’t going anywhere!

Phoenix: Okay you three, calm down. Obviously we’re not accepting Jethro’s challenge. Not like we can’t win all our matches, but Hunter makes a point, it’ll take one screw job to lessen our strength, and we can ill afford that.

Hunter nods, smiling to himself.

Hunter: No, we certainly cannot. Right, Chamelion?

Chamelion: I don’t even know why we’re arguing about this. Of course we’re not bowing down to Jethro’s demand. Hell, he’d have to offer to leave the PWA once he loses, not just a week’s pay. Certainly very one sided, in my opinion. Brother?

Raizzor, who has been standing in front of the monitor with Jethro’s face frozen on the screen, slowly turns towards the others.

Raizzor: I accept his terms.

As one, the Pantheon jump to their feet and center in on the Soul-Taker.

Engel: You can’t accept on our behalf, Sommers!

Hunter: Are you mad? It has to be a trap!

Wilkie: Dude, come on!

Phoenix: Don’t let your ego get the better of you, and don’t go deciding for us what we accept!

Chamelion: Brother? I can’t let you accept his challenge, you know this.

Raizzor glares at them all.

Raizzor: Then do not. But I accept his terms, for myself, not for Pantheon. Do you not trust that I can defeat the man?

The others look to each other, no one willing to speak up on what they’re feeling. Raizzor acknowledges their silence.

Raizzor: Very well, do not trust in me. But I will do what must be done. I promised the man respect, and he will have it. If he so wishes to add this stipulation, then I will accept. I know what I am capable of, and if I must prove it to you all, I will.

Raizzor stalks out of the room, leaving the rest to ponder what will happen. Wilkie turns to Chamelion.

Wilkie: Let him go, I guess, we have more important business to attend too. Our match tonight.

Chamelion: Yeah, speaking about that. I’ve decided to change up the match a little. Make it more exciting, as it were.

Wilkie: Oh? Do tell!

Chamelion: Tonight’s tag match, between us and Pohatu and Sunshine Warrior, is now a street fight tag match!

Wilkie nods approvingly, as the rest of the Pantheon smile at Chamelion’s devious plan, and we move back to ringside.

Post match, as Marxx is celebrating in the ring, Chamelion races down and slides in. As Marxx turns to the roaring crowd’s warning, Chamelion clips him in the jaw with the S.O.S.! The crowd is stunned, wondering why he’d do this, and Chamelion grabs a mic to give an answer.

Chamelion: I heard rumors, kiddo. Rumors you weren’t happy with my little involvement at Summer Sizzler. Well, let me turn rumor to fact. You really won’t be happy now, when you and I square off at Manitoba Mayhem! GOT IT?!?

Chamelion drops the mic and offers his Cheshire Grin as we cut to commercial.

Enter The Cowgirls From Hell!


[ The scene opens up backstage in front of the locker room of Meghan and Tamika Nash Strader. Bud Adams approaches the door, checks his hair in the reflection from the nameplate on the locker room door. He knocks, and is greeted by the Strader sisters, Meghan and Tamika. Both wear blue jeans, women’s black cowboy boots, black leather belts with the cFh logo on the belt buckle, and tight white tank tops. Bud Adams almost has a drooling look upon his face, but sucks it back in and starts doing his job. ]

Bud Adams – I’m here backstage with two of the newest PWA wrestlers, but come from a long line of championships in their family. They are third generation, they are the daughters of former PWA World Champion Scott Nash Strader, Meghan and Tamika Nash Strader. First off welcome to the PWA girls, although you’ve already been with us since your father was around.

TNS – Thank you Bud. We are happy to be here too.

MNS – It always has been a dream of ours to one day grace the squared circle in a real sanctioned match, and that time is quickly coming.

Bud Adams – Yes it is. Tell us, what do you plan on doing here in the PWA?

MNS – First off Bud we would just like to set the record straight on a couple family issues. Everything involving our father and the current PWA World Champion has been finally dealt with. So in no way are we here to hurt Engel.

TNS – Unless he gets in our way of course.

MNS – Then he will be sorry. Anyone that does cross our paths will be sorry.

Bud Adams – Well that’s no way to make friends around her.

[ Meghan and Tamika share a laugh. ]

MNS – Mika, did we come here to make friends?

TNS – No I don’t think we did Meghan.

MNS – That’s what I thought. You see Bud, we are a lot like our father was back in his prime. We are brass, outspoken, stubborn at times, but we will come out on top. Our families name has taken a real shit kicking over the past few years, and our father was the only one who ever made a good name for us. Our uncles fought each other, and one just got way to arrogant.

TNS – Unlike Strader’s before Bud, we will fix our mistakes when we make them. We won’t let stardom go to our heads like Uncle Payton once did. We are different.

Bud Adams – A lot of third generation wrestlers say things like that… so how does that make you any different?

MNS – What makes us different? Or should I say what will make us different? What will make us different from people like Jacob Collins is we got the winning gene and are not afraid of anyone. So in saying that, my sister and I would like to lay down a open challenge to any PWA tag team active or inactive to show we are the real deal. On next weeks show Mika and I will head down to the ring, and await a challenger. It can be anyone.

TNS – It can be the Pantheon, it can be the Mavericks, or it could even be our current tag team champions Riona Langly and Emperor Ian. We are laying down a challenge, and next week we hope that a challenger will present their selves and face us on the following Rampage.

Bud Adams – Why the following show?

MNS – That’s simple Bud… I will be debuting in a singles match.

Bud Adams – That is excellent news, hopefully you get an opponent that will test your strong words here today.

MNS – Me too Bud, me too.

Bud Adams – But I also look forward to seeing the Strader Sister’s debut as a tag team.

TNS – That’s not our name Bud.

Bud Adams – What is it then?

MNS – Shh.. Can you hear that? That’s the sounds of hoofbeats.

[ The girls turn around heading back into their locker room and on the back of their tank tops it says Cowgirls From Hell. ]

Raizzor vs Jethro Hayes

Singles Match


The show returns with Brian and Jon quickly recapping Chamelion's challenge to Marxx in the previous segment, and how it will be one hell of a match. They then discuss the upcoming contest, which people have been waiting a very long time to see.

Eric Emerson: The following match is set for one fall with a fifteen minute time limit.

A single GONG echoes throughout the arena, as smoke begins to rise up on the stage. Suddenly, multiple pyros shoot off, making a
trail from the outside of the stage, then down the ramp and finishing as the four corners of the ring shoot pyro into the air! Once the smoke begins to
settle, Raizzor appears in the center of the ring, shedding his leather duster and throwing it out of the ring, as he stares entranced up the ramp, waiting
for Jethro to enter the ring.

Jon McDaniel: Raizzor inspires awe whenever he comes out.

Brian Rentfro: Hence the reason he is in the Pantheon.

"Suuuuuuuuuuey!" The cranking of a tractor is heard throughout the arena and the video entrance of Jethro Hayes begins playing over the big screen.
Cows moo, on the screen cows are shown in a green pasture. Pigs are oinking, on the screen pigs run around in mud within a fence. The scene on the screen
goes to rolling hills, showing combines in the field harvesting crops, tractors harrowing the ground preparing for the new crop; semi trucks are hauling
off the harvested crop. A man walks up the 3 steps and opens the door on the cab of his John Deere tractor, he is wearing a John Deere trucker hat, and
is missing a few teeth, evident by the grinning face he turns to the camera, he waves at the camera; it is part of a family video. He climbs on into the
cab of the tractor; along with the cranking of the tractor on the screen, the beginning of Thank God I'm a Country Boy by John Denver begins to play over
the speaker system.

~Well life on the farm is kinda laid back
~Aint much an old country boy like me cant hack
~Its early to rise, early in the sack
~Thank God Im a country boy

The curtains are pulled back by two people and the front of a John Deere 4720 tractor is seen in the backstage area, smoke boiling up from the muffler.


~Well a simple kinda life never did me no harm
~A raisin me a family and workin on a farm
~My days are all filled with an easy country charm
~Thank God Im a country boy

When the words "kinda laid back" are heard, the tractor begins moving forward slowly down the ramp the tractor is moving at about 3 miles an hour.

Eric Emerson: "From Lean Ox, Ga; weighing 315 pounds and standing at 6' 7"... your Pioneer Wrestling Association Intercontinental Champion Jethro Hayes!"

With the mentioning of his name, Jethro toots the tractor's horn inside the cab and waves to the crowd, he revs the tractor's engine slightly in response
to the crowd.

~Well I got me a fine wife I got me a fiddle
~When the suns comin up I got cakes on the griddle
~Life aint nothin but a funy funny riddle
~Thank God Im a country boy

The tractor arrives at the bottom of the ramp and Jethro stops the tractor, toots the horn while reving the tractor to full power; then he shuts the tractor
off. Jethro climbs out of the tractor to a huge pop, he waves and climbs down. Jethro is wearing overalls with a yellow John Deere shirt underneath, brown
Wolverine boots, and a John Deere hat.

~When the works all done and the suns settlin low
~I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow
~The kids are asleep so I keep it kinda low
~Thank God Im a country boy
~Id play sally goodin all day if I could
~But the lord and my wife wouldnt take it very good
~So I fiddle when I could, work when I should
~Thank God Im a country boy

He touches a few fans hands on his way to the ring steps. He climbs up the steps and gets into the ring He walks to one corner and waves to those fans.


~Well I got me a fine wife I got me a fiddle
~When the suns comin up I got cakes on the griddle
~Life aint nothin but a funy funny riddle
~Thank God Im a country boy

He walks to another corner and waves to those fans, nodding along with the music.

~Well I wouldnt trade my life for diamonds and jewels
~I never was one of them money hungry fools
~Iid rather have my fiddle and my farmin tools
~Thank God Im a country boy

He walks to the third corner and waves to those fans with thumbs up in the air, still nodding along with the music; he mimics playing a fiddle.

~Yeah, city folk drivin in a black limousine
~A lotta sad people thinkin thats mighty keen
~Son, let me tell ya now exactly what I mean
~Thank God Im a country boy

Reaching the fourth corner, he takes off his hat and throws it into the crowd; shaking his head he prepares for the match.

~Well I got me a fine wife I got me a fiddle
~When the suns comin up I got cakes on the griddle
~Life aint nothin but a funy funny riddle
~Thank God Im a country boy
The song fades away slowly with the chorus repeating while it dwindles into silence.

Ding Ding

Jethro and Raizzor stare at each other in the center of the ring, neither man backing down an inch, Jethro sticks out his right hand. Raizzor looks down at the offered hand then back up at Jethro as he shakes it respectively. Collar and elbow in the center of the ring, Raizzor backs Jethro up a few feet before Hayes is able to power back up to a vertical position, he moves him and Raizzor back to the center of the ring. Jethro drops the lockup in favor of a wristlock, into a hammerlock behind Raizzor's back. Michael slaps his shoulder before turning to have Jethro in a hammerlock of his own. Raizzor chains into a side headlock, but Jethro throws him into the ropes where Raizzor rebounds to the opposite side. Jethro ducks his head at the last minute and Raizzor leaps over the bent over wrestler. Jethro spins to face the running Raizzor, double clothesline takes both men down. Raizzor sits up immediately, but Jethro is quickly up to his feet as well. Jethro with a forearm to Raizzor who falls back into a corner, whip into the opposite corner, Raizzor reverses and Jethro slams into the corner back first. Raizzor runs in with a leaping body splash, Jethro falls forward out of the corner. Raizzor with a throat thrust sends Jethro back into the corner holding at his throat. Jethro receives another throat thrust and it is obvious that he is hurting here now.

Brian Rentfro: Raizzor is relentless in his assault of the Intercontinental Champion.

Jon McDaniel: Don't count Jethro out yet.

Raizzor sets Jethro's head over his shoulder in a stunning position and sets him up for a diamond cutter, but Jethro shoves him forward preventing the devastating move. Raizzor stumbles forward and Jethro dives with a clothesline to the back of Sommers' head sending him crashing down to the mat. Jethro grabs Raizzor's ankle and applies a heel hook submission, but Raizzor sensing something rolls over to prevent it from being synched on completely. Raizzor up against the ropes and here comes Jethro with a clothesline that sends both men over the top to crash to the floor. Raizzor is up quicker than Hayes shoving him face first into the apron and whipping him into the guard railing as the referee's count reaches three. Raizzor with a high knee lift, but Jethro ducks under the knee and Raizzor crotches himself on the railing that is supposed to protect the fans. Jethro jumps up, grabs a quick side headlock, and slams Raizzor on the ring side of the barrier with a bulldog as the referee's count reaches seven. Jethro with a big right hand backs Raizzor up against the ring post, and a second has him dazed.

Jon McDaniel: Jethro with something to prove here.

Brian Rentfro: Yeah, he nearly wet himself in his promo against Raizzor earlier this week.

Jethro rolls Raizzor into the ring and gets up to his feet pulling Raizzor up as well. Right hand to Raizzor's head, but Raizzor seems to come to life as he delivers a right hand of his own to Hayes. Jethro falls backward from the blow, Raizzor sends another into Jethro's temple, Raizzor with a third and Jethro is on wobbly street. Raizzor with a jab into Jethro's ribs, a second into his midsection and he goes back to the ribs with the third. Raizzor is in a pattern with alternating shots to Jethro's ribs and midsection, but Jethro slams an elbow into Raizzor's shoulder blades and the onslaught stops. Raizzor reaches down and yanks Jethro's ankles sending the big man, well one of the big men in this match, down to the canvas. Jethro is on his back and Raizzor with a knee drop onto Jethro's left leg, and he grinds an elbow into the side of his knee as well. Raizzor back up again, delivering a forearm drop into the side of Jethro's knee again and Hayes is hurting. Raizzor goes for another, but Jethro slams a boot into Raizzor's midsection and the Soul Taker drops his ankle. Jethro rolls back up to his feet and limps a bit as he and Raizzor come together in the center of the ring. Right from
Raizzor, right from Hayes and Raizzor stumbles backwards. Short arm clothesline sends Raizzor to the canvas, but Jethro picks him up, swinging neck breaker takes him down immediately. Jethro hits the ropes, big leg drop across Raizzor's throat and Jethro is in full control here. He sets himself for the Plow, but Raizzor just sits up. Jethro is taken aback, he has seen Raizzor do this before, but it is amazing to see never the less. Raizzor gets up, with fire in his eyes as he faces Jethro who is in a crouching position now. Raizzor beckons Jethro forward and Hayes obeys the summons. Jethro circles as Raizzor does the same, neither willing to give an opening, but both looking for one. Jethro dives forward, Raizzor with a quick punch to the side of his head drops him to the mat on one knee, Raizzor with a big boot to nothing as Jethro rolls out of the way and takes Raizzor down with a single leg takedown. Raizzor with a quick flurry of rights and lefts gets Jethro to back up from the barrage.

Jon McDaniel: Both men equally opposing here.

Brian Rentfro: But Raizzor is just playing with Jethro, he knows he can take Hayes at any moment.

Both men are back up and circling once again, they dive together with a collar and elbow tie up in the center of the ring, but neither man can gain an advantage here and the lock up is dropped. Lock up again, but again neither man can get an advantage. Both hit the ropes, double clothesline and both are down, but both get back up immediately. They turn to face each other from about three feet away from each other. They go for another collar and elbow, but Jethro grabs the wrist and is behind Raizzor with the quickness unsuspected from him, but Raizzor drops to one knee and lifts Jethro up on his shoulders to spin him around with an airplane spin. Jethro shoves himself off of Raizzor's back and is in the ropes coming back with a shoulder block, Raizzor steps to the side tripping Jethro sending him down on his forearms and knees. Jethro rolls over just in time to avoid a big kick from Raizzor and he trips Raizzor down to the mat. Jethro is back up, but so is Raizzor they come to blows again in the center of the ring with both sending rights and lefts into the other's head, but neither gains an advantage and neither is willing to stop the fists. After about thirty seconds, they stop and look at each other, red faced and sweaty, but at the sight of each other, they begin again. Raizzor places a boot into Jethro's midsection and goes for a DDT, but Jethro shoves him backwards and Raizzor in the ropes, he comes back with a big boot to Jethro's head sending him down anyways. Jethro rolls over to his back and Raizzor is in the ropes for a big leg drop that connects and he covers for a pin, but decides to end this in fashion with his Tombstone shoulder breaker.

Raizzor lifts Jethro up, turns him over, and nails his finishing move; he covers and the referee is there.

One... Two... Three.

Ding! Ding! Ding!

Jon McDaniel: I can't believe it!

Brian Rentfro: Seeing is believing and you isn’t blind my friend.

Eric Emerson: The winner of the match.... Raizzor!

Jethro and Raizzor get back to their feet, Jethro holding at his shoulder a bit, but Hayes still puts his right hand out to shake Raizzor's right hand. Raizzor looks on at Jethro for a moment, and then grips the Southern Hero's hand and they shake soundly. Raizzor then backs away to the ropes and flips backwards out of the ring, leaving Jethro to nod and pose for the crowd.

Jon McDaniel: It seems Raizzor won't have to worry about leaving Pantheon anytime soon.

Brian Rentfro: And poor Jethro loses a week's pay. Poor poor guy. *laughs*

A Message Sent. Part 2


The camera suddenly shoots backstage, it revealed the inside of Johnny maverick's locker room. His back was to the camera while he sat on a bench and looked to be packing his things into a duffel bag. Entering stage right appears a figure. All one could see is arms behind a lead pipe, a lead pipe that all of a sudden become intimate with Johnny's left shoulder. Johnny shot to his feet and wheeled around. That was when Hunter came into frame.

Hunter: “Hate to do this, Johnny. But I think it’s about time I finish the job.”

Johnny gritted his teeth, his jaw tightened, his right hand clenched into a tight fist. Johnny goes to swing at Hunter with a knock out blow. But before his arm could reach half way, the lead pipe struck him in the gut, making him collapse to a knee. Johnny still tried to fight off Hunter by nailing him with a double leg take down. But Hunter planted his feet and struck Johnny in the back. This finally made him collapse to the floor.

Hunter: “ Such a spirited fighter you are. It Reminds me of the days back in NLS, During all those training sessions, all that potential. Such a waste, but I guess this is what happens when Jethro doesn’t finish the job like I told him to do. Hear me Jethro? HEAR ME? This is what happens when you are to much of a coward to finish me. This Apostle thing, this resistance, it’s irritatingly stupid. See, Johnny, this here, what I’m about to do, this isn’t for the perfect match, it’s not about eliminating the opposition. THIS, this here is about teaching everyone out there that when you start something, you should finish it. ”

Hunter rested the pipe on the back of Johnny's shoulder and locked in a grounded armbar. He pushed his legs down on the pipe to gain extra leverage.... Suddenly Hunter drops the arm and looks to the far left growing a smile as he drops the pipe and quickly runs the opposite way, letting Johnny curse loudly as he holds his arm, Hunter had stopped before causing too much damage, and with that RIona runs onto the scene holding her Railroad spike in hand. It seems obvious that she was what scared the Pantheon member away. Keeping an eye out for any other Pantheon members Riona takes Johnny by the good arm and helps him stand. Johnny looks furious, things are getting serious, and it’s only going to be a matter of time.

Alex Wilkie & Chamelion vs Sunshine Warrior & Pohatu

Tag-Team Match


DING! DING! DING!

Eric Emerson: “Ladies and Gentlemen! This next match is a Tag-Team STREET FIGHT!”

Faint ( Remix ) by Linkin' Park and Justin Lassen hits the tron as the crowd starts to go wild! Pohatu and Sunshine both stand at the stage, as the crowd begins to chant “NA-TURE! NA-TURE! NA-TURE!”

Eric Emerson: “Making their way to the ring first! The team of- The Sunshine Warrior and the PWA Television Champion, Pohatu- NATURE!”

Sunshine Warrior and Pohatu both make their down to the ring, pose a bit for the crowd and huddle together to discuss their strategy.

Then the crowd dies down, the lights dim down as well.

Eric Emerson: “And their opponent...”

For a second the crowd sits in silence, then two screaming rockets fire off from the light rig around the ring and set off a large set of fireworks on the stage, which kicks off "Ready to Roll" By Jet Black Stare

The song hits the PA system hard, and out from behind the curtain comes "Grade "A Alex Wilkie, a Kendo Stick in his hand he smacks it on the ground before walking down the ramp.

Eric Emerson: "Ladies and Gentlemen, Making his way to the ring weighing in at two hundred and forty pounds, hailing from The City of Sin! He is GRADE A. ALEX WIIIILLLLKIE!!!"

He stands at the end of the ramp and looks up the ring at the tag team “Nature” and shakes his head, his music fades, boo's and jeers echo's throughout the arena, then the lights dim, and strobe lights begin to flash around the entrance stage when the following lyrics explode over the arena speakers.

I hear voices in my head,
They council me,
They understand,
They talk to me!

Eric Emerson: From Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 245lbs…CHAMELION!

Walking confidently out onto the stage, Chamelion, attired in dark green wrestling tights and a black fishnet shirt, looks around the arena, aware of everything.

You got your rules and your religion
All designed to keep you safe
But when rules start getting broken
You start questioning your faith

He stands there, silently for a few moments as the music swells around him. His eyes lowered to the ring.

I have a voice that is my savior
Hates to love and loves to hate
I have a voice that has the knowledge
And the power to rule your fate

At that point, Chamelion whips his head up, his hair flying back and he has the look of a hunter about him, as he moves towards the ring with focused determination.

I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste blood that's drying
I feel tension rising

I hear voices in my head,
They council me,
They understand,
They talk to me! They Talk to me!
They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I'll do to you
They talk to me! (talk to me, talk to me, talk to me!)
They talk to me! (talk to me, talk to me, talk to me!)

Chamelion looks to Alex and nods, they both slide under the ring and immediately go on the attack, Alex takes on Sunshine and Chamelion with Pohatu, Alex grabs Sunshine by the arm and whips him into the turn buckle, Chamelion whips Pohatu into the Turnbuckle opposite!

Jon McDaniel: Here we go! The start of this Tag Match, that earlier tonight, Chamelion turned into a street fight!

Brian Rentfro: It’s obvious McDaniel! Chamelion wanted to give the fans a show, and he did! Now we're gonna get to see him and Alex Wilkie demolish Nature!

Alex and Chamelion both climb up to the second rope and begin to drop ten punches on their respective opponents! The crowd chants along!

The Phoenix & Hunter Sullivan vs Riona Langly & Emperor Ian

Tag-Team Title Match


Eric Emerson - This match is scheduled for one fall and it is for the PWA World Tag Team Championship. On their way to the ring at this time, the challengers… weighing in at a combined weight of four hundred and fifty seven pounds… they are The Pantheon!!!

[The Final Countdown begins to play as The Phoenix and Hunter Sullivan come onto the stage. They ignore the boo’s as they reach the ring. ]

Eric Emerson – Introducing next, weighing in at two hundred and two pounds, he is one half of the PWA Tag Team Champions... Emperor Ian!!!!!!!

["Manic Depression" by Carnivore plays as Emperor Ian walks to the ring as fast as he can, ignoring the fans. A soft pinging noise fills the speakers, moving across the arena as the lights flicker along with it. As the pinging comes to a stop, the lights in the arena shut off completely, and orchestral intro to "Planet Hell" by Nightwish begins. The crowd doesn't really know what to think as images of angels and death flash across the screen, superimposed with flashes of ring action. The lights begin to flicker along with the beat of the drums. And without a warning, the music stops and a massive explosion of red pyro goes off on both sides of the entrance ramp as the guitars kick in most mightily, the lights coming back on with a fury. Blue lasers fly about the arena as Marco Hietala begins singing.
### Denying the lying ###
### A million children fighting ###
### For lives in strife ###
### For hope beyond the horizon ###
The lasers switch to a reddish hue as Tajra begins to sing....
### A dead world ###
### A dark path ###
### Not even crossroads to choose from ###
### All the blood red carpets before me ###
### Behold this fair creation of God ###
As Tajra's pace and the music calm down considerably, a spotlight bursts out from in front of the curtain as a figure slowly makes its way out in front of it, head tilted down. The figure stops just in front of the light, head tilted down. Her long, black hair flows over her shoulders, bangs at the front hiding her face as she silhouettes herself on the light.
Eric Emerson: "Introducing first/next/his opponent, she stands 5 feet, 9 inches and weighed in this morning at 142 pounds..."
### My only wish to leave behind ###
### All the days of the earth ###
### An everyday hell of my kingdom come ###
The woman slowly lifts her head up, hair hanging down over her face and obscuring most of it. Finally, as the second of the song begins, she throws her arms out to the side in a crucifix pose and flicks her head back, her hair flying back over her shoulders and revealing her face. A huge pop occurs as a stream of silver sparks fall from the screen above her, the light behind her blacking out. She ignores any sort of minor pain that the sparks would be causing her as three silver fireworks shoot off from the top of the tron to fly off and hit sets above the ring, causing minor explosions and the lasers to switch back to blue.
### The first rock thrown again ###
### Welcome to hell, little Saint ###
### Mother Gaia in slaughter ###
### Welcome to paradise soldier ###
Riona drops her pose and paces each side of the entrance ramp, mentally preparing herself for the match as she loosens her muscles up a bit with a little bounce.
Eric Emerson: "She comes to us from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is the Celestial Trigger and one half of the PWA Tag Team Champions..."
### My first cry neverending ###
### All life is to fear for life ###
### You fool, you wanderer ###
### You challenged the gods and lost ###
Riona returns to the middle of the entranceway and begins to make her way down the ramp as silver sparks suddenly fly up from either side of the entrance ramp to shower down over her, creating a tunnel of sorts due to the arching shape. Riona's typical neutral gaze not showing much of her thoughts towards the crowd. The arching shape keeps her from specifically reaching out for high fives, but she doesn't bother to stop the few pats on the back she gets through the tunnel of sparks. Riona stops at the bottom of the ramp as the sparks finally dissipate, looking up into the ring for a few moments before walking over to and up the stairs. She quickly climbs up to the top turnbuckle and snaps off a crucifix pose as silver pyro shoots up from the other three turnbuckles with a loud pop as soon as the chorus begins.
Eric Emerson: "RIOOOONA... LANGLLLYYYY!!"
### Save yourself a penny for the ferryman ###
### Save yourself and let them suffer ###
### In hope ###
### In love ###
### This world isn’t ready for The Ark ###
She holds the pose there while the chorus goes on, the lasers finally ending. Finally, Riona lowers her arms and hops down into to her corner, doing some last minute stretches and getting ready for the match as the lights return to normal.
