Jon McDaniel: Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve got some breaking news for you from just a few minutes earlier. Sudden Impact were in their dressing room getting ready for their matches tonight when St. Louis City Policemen came and arrested them. We don’t have any details to disclose at this time, but this appears to be pretty serious. This does, of course, mean that the match between Jay and Cash Money will canceled, as will the Ty Copas/Showtime match.

The Brothers Grimm vs. Blitzkrieg


(Blitzkrieg are already in the ring, having entered during the announcement by Jon McDaniel.)



Ring Announcer: And their opponents…from Winnipeg, Canada…the Brothers Grimm!



(More Human than Human comes on the PA as Sirus, Grifter, and Al make their way to the ring.)



Brian Rentfro: Quit beating around the bush, Jon. You know exactly why Sudden Impact were arrested!


(Grifter and Brymstone lock up. Brymstone whips Grifter into the ropes, but Grifter ducks a clothesline. Grifter comes off the ropes with a spinning heel kick, but Brymstone dodges, then drops an elbow on Grifter. Both men are up, but Brymstone quickly takes Grifter back down with a short clothesline. Grifter gets knocked back to his corner where he manages to tag in Sirus. Sirus slings himself over the top rope and clotheslines Brymstone to the mat. Sirus kneels down and punches Brymstone repeatedly in the face. Phoenix is in and grabs Sirus by the hair and flings him into the corner. Brymstone rolls out while Phoenix works Sirus over with punches.)



Jon McDaniel: No, I’m pretty sure I don’t, Rentfro.



(Phoenix steps back, then runs at Sirus and delivers a big splash. He goes back and tries again, but this time Sirus jumps out of the way. Phoenix stumbles backwards out of the corner and Sirus hits a release German suplex on him. Grifter climbs up top and Sirus tags him in. Grifter comes down with the Buzz Bomb. Brymstone is in the ring, but Sirus cuts him off with a knee lift. Grifter has Phoenix covered. 1…2…3.)



Jon McDaniel: The Brothers Grimm get the win!



Brian Rentfro: Don’t change the subject, Jon! Sudden Impact were arrested for arson and murder and you know it!

Chamelion vs. The Spider

World Title Match


Jon McDaniel: I know nothing of the sort!



Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger….Chamelion!



("You Think You Know Me" comes on the PA. Chamelion comes out in green and black trunks, and a scaled textured top. He walks casually down the ramp, rubbing his hands and giggling madly.)



Brian Rentfro: Yes you do! You had to have seen the video tape of that! How could they be stupid enough to tape themselves doing something like that? The whole locker room is talking about it!



Ring Announcer: And his opponent, the PWA World Heavyweight Champion…Dalton Campbell, the Spider!



(The Final Countdown by "Europe" begins to play just as the arena lights go out and the ADC tron lights up with a picture of a giant spider. The picture of the spider fades out and white pyros flare of the ring. The Spider the comes down from the rafters on a harness and enters the ring.)



Jon McDaniel: I think it is too early to be discussing this, Brian…



(Spider and Chamelion lock up, but neither man will budge. They break the lock up and try again. Spider powers Chamelion into the corner and hits him with a few high knees before the referee breaks them apart. As Spider makes the break, he slaps Chamelion across the face, then turns to show off to the crowd. Chamelion comes out of the corner with a bulldog and makes a quick cover. 1…kickout.)



Jon McDaniel: Good plan to try and stun Spider and get the quick win, but that wasn’t even close!



Brian Rentfro: Come on, Jon! You know what the fans want to hear about!



(Chamelion pulls Spider up, but Spider manages a jawbreaker. Spider applies a grapevine on Chamelion’s leg, but the challenger makes the ropes. Chamelion blocks a punch by whipping Spider into the ropes, but Spider reverses it. Chamelion ducks a clothesline and comes back with a flying body press. Spider rolls through with it and turns it into a pin. 1..kickout. Spider pulls Chamelion up and kicks him in the stomach. Campbell sets up a DDT, but Chamelion blocks him and turns it into a Northern Lights suplex.)



Jon McDaniel: Brian, until we know more about the situation, I won’t say anything else about it.



(Spider gets up to his feet, but Chamelion dropkicks his knee, sending the champ to the mat. Chamelion locks on a figure four leg lock. Campbell fights hard to get to the ropes. Chamelion breaks the hold and starts to pull Spider up, but Spider blocks with a European uppercut. Campbell limps around the ring, trying to work his leg back, but Chamelion spins him around. Spider blocks a punch and lands one of his own. Spider tries for another punch, but Chamelion blocks and tries one of his own. Spider ducks it and spins around to nail a float-over DDT. 1…2.kickout.)



Brian Rentfro: Didn’t Chamelion say he’d quit if someone interfered in this match?



Jon McDaniel: I believe so… Why do you ask?



Brian Rentfro: Because Gabrielle just started walking towards the ring…



(Spider starts to pull Chamelion up, but Chamelion takes him down with a double leg takedown and flips over into a bridging pin. 1…2..kickout. Chamelion slaps the mat in frustration. Spider beats Chamelion to his feet and sets him up for a brainbuster, but Campbell’s knee buckles and Chamelion falls on top of Spider. 1…2..kickout.)



Jon McDaniel: That is two near-falls for Chamelion in a row!



Brian Rentfro: But what’s the deal with Gabrielle? She’s just standing and watching!



(Chamelion and Spider trade punches, but Chamelion gets the better of the exchange. Chamelion locks Spider is a front face lock and sets him up for a suplex, but Spider blocks it. Spider reverses the suplex attempt, but spins Chamelion around, almost setting him up for a tombstone. Then Spider drops Chamelion’s feet down to the mat and hits an inverted DDT. Spider climbs up top and nails the Hero’s Victory. 1…2…3!)



Brian Rentfro: Spider pulled it off and retained the belt! And what the hell was that move before the Hero’s Victory?



Jon McDaniel: Who knows? All that matters is that it worked! We’re out of time tonight, but we’ll be back soon with more details on Sudden Impact. See you Wednesday!
