Opening Segment!!!

Original, right?


As Rampage starts, President Robinson comes out on stage. He announces that with all the complaints from the talent in the Dome of Destruction match about the other people in the match, they will all face off against people who have either had their number in the past, or up and coming talent…all of the people in the match except of him of course. This being due to the fact no one would ever question Rob Robinson’s talent and right to be in this match. The gauntlet will start with Lucious Starr tackling a ghost he has been unable to shake, Thomas Manchester Black.

Lucious Starr vs TMB

Singles Match


Lucy Starr and TMB lock up in the center of the ring. The two men spend the first five minutes or so in kind of a feeling out process. Basically, these two are trying to feel each other up, kind of weird I know but to each their own. Now then, the two start to exchange fists in the center of the ring with TMB getting the advantage. He lands a few fists before whipping Starr into the far turnbuckle. He charges only to be met with a boot to the face. Then comes the boring part of the match where Starr starts to wear down TMB with armbars and random joint locks. Then Starr begins to setup for the finish but fucks up enough for TMB to mount a comeback. TMB starts to stalk around Starr looking to land his Branches of Sin. He attempts it three times before getting caught in a Hades' Flame attempt. But TMB throws an elbow or two to force Starr to drop him. Then when Starr turns, he turns into The Branches of Sin. TMB makes the cover and this one's over.

Riona Langly vs Danny Monroe & Kyle Stevenson

Handicap Match


Monroe and Langly will be starting. They both try to one up each other; going for hard and fast moves, but countering each other constantly. Langly finally gains momentum when she counters a hip toss and knees Monroe in the gut. As he bends over, Langly grabs Monroe around the next and drills him with a faceplant DDT. Langly covers.

Kickout.

On the outside, Stevenson looks unimpressed as he yawns. Langly and Monroe go back and forth a little more, and Monroe catches Riona off guard with a kick to the knee. With Riona down on a knee, Monroe grabs her, and sets up for the fishermanbuster. However, as he lifts Riona up, he holds her there and walks towards the ropes. Danny leans back, bounces Riona off the ropes for extra momentum, and then turns and drills her with the Fading Star. The fans are on their feet!

KICKOUT!

Monroe looks surprised as Stevenson is yelling for a tag.

Stevenson: You fucked up! MY TURN!

Monroe looks upset, and stomps away at Riona. Danny sees Stevenson screaming for him and walks to the corner. He leans in to yell back at Stevenson, but Stevenson slaps him across the face and the ref acknowledges a tag. Stevenson jumps in and runs to Riona. He lifts her up, and she pushes on him. Stevenson charges back, and gets caught with the Reality Check. Riona signals for the end, but as Riona reaches for Stevenson, he pops back up much to Riona's surprise, and drills her with the Ignorance. Stevenson dives and hooks a leg, grabbing a handful of her pants for good measure.

Winner: Stevenson and Monroe!

Mark McNasty vs Dallas Hoover

Singles Match


Dallas Hoover and Mark McNasty look intensely into each other’s eyes, before beginning to approach each other for the collar-and-elbow tie-up of whatever other hold may instil action to the proceedings. They then quickly approach each other, as if looking for said hold, but instead, Mark McNasty suddenly hoists Hoover up and drops him down to the mat with a spinebuster, generating audible surprise from the audience. McNasty then runs into the ropes, does a forward roll and hits the Rolling Thunder. He covers.

Dallas Hoover, although taken off-guard by the offence, still managed to kick-out very early in the pinfall attempt. McNasty is the first to get up, however, and locks his hands around the back of Hoover's head. Hoover parts his grip and attempts a clothesline. The Nasty One ducks underneath; Dallas Hoover turns around and is hit in the side of the head with a mule kick. The referee asks Hoover whether he has had enough. He is dazed and does not respond.

As “Jelly Roll” attempts to find his bearings and his feet, McNasty begins to dance around him and hits him hard in the sternum with several kicks. Eventually, Hoover manages to get to his feet, catches Mark’s leg on another kicking attempt and throws him overhead with a Capture Suplex. He does not capitalise immediately, instead opting to use this time for a breather. He shakes the cobwebs out of his head as his opponent does the same. Nevertheless, Dallas is the first one to get to his feet.

As McNasty gets to his feet, Dallas runs through him and towards the ropes with a semi-impactful attack. He then comes off of the ropes and hits a huge Lou Thesz Press, in tribute to an imaginary wrestler. He pins down the shoulders, whilst still in the mounted position.

McNasty manages to squirm his shoulder up. He then wedges his feet in between himself and Hoovber and raises Hoover, tot he shock of the crowd, off of the mat, whilst the Greco-Roman Knuckle Lock is still in place. He then rocks Hoover back and attempts a Monkey Flip, only for Dallas Hoover to cartwheel out of it. McNasty attempts to sweeps his opponent’s legs, but Hoover jumps up to avboid the blow and connects with a hard slap to the side of Mark’s head. This sends Mark into a complete and utter daze.

Dallas Hoover then fires himself up, generating an even louder response from the audience as he does so. He goes over to pick up his opponent, but McNasty instead pulls him down into an inside cradle.

...

Kick-out!

McNasty follows up with an attempt at a Mahistrol Cradle, and completes it.

Again, Hoover forced his way out. This time, McNasty runs into the ropes and back again, looking to use the momentum to connect with a high-impact manoeuvre. Instead, Dallas Hoover catches him with the Flavour Savour and sits on him for a pinfall attempt.

Eric Emerson: Here is your winner...Dallas Hoover!

After the match, REBEL Pro's Justin Case comes out of the crowd and lays into Hoover, sending the big man to the ground and stomping him until he stops trying to get up.

McNasty is finally coming to as Case has vanished as Hoover staggers up the ramp. The lights begin to flash on and off as camera flashes go off in the crowd. Finally, the lights go out, and the tron lights up to show the mysterious count down again. However, this time, the image is of Mark McNasty with cross bones under his face. "See You At Ground Zero" is under the image. After a few seconds, the tron goes back to normal, and the lights come back on.

Emily Corlen vs Gonzo McQueen

Singles Match


Gonzo and Emily locked up, Gonzo one of the few men on the PWA roster who did not hold a significant height or weight advantage against the buxom beauty, allowing her to control the action early on with force. Gonzo was still able to counter a couple of big moves despite this, nearly capturing the pinfall early on with a quick roll up and a grab of the ropes. At this point, Emily grew infuriated and began laying into Gonzo with all of her strength (implying that she was, in fact holding back at first, which would lead many to wonder why.) Emily hit several big moves in succession, including the Rolling Thunder (Three Rolling German Suplexes into a bridged pin) and the Crimson Plunge (Powerbomb into Facebuster), but to McQueen's credit, he refused to stay down.

As the match was drawing to a close, Bound by Blood began to walk down the ramp. The ref saw this and ran to the ropes to yell at them to stay out of it. McQueen began to rise in the corner as Corlen taunted him. She looked at her stable mates and told the ref to let them in, but he would not. The fans began going crazy and Corlen turned in time to find out the reason why was Matt Engel was in the ring. Engel drilled Corlen in the gut before dropping her with the Sons of Plunder. McQueen, being one not to waste a gift horse, got the refs attention before covering.

WINNER: Gonzo McQueen, via pinfall!

After the bell rang, Bound by Blood swarmed the ring, ready to pounce on McQueen. McQueen dives out of the ring, and as BbB goes to follow, Emily stops them. The mic on the nearest cameraman caught her telling the girls that "He's not on our hitlist." The ravenous women begrudgingly agreed and left the ringside area. Let this be a lesson: No one attack the Virus twice without payback.

Matt Stone vs Vicious Vic Wagner

Non-Title Match


The bell rings... or does it go ding? Either way the contest is under way. The older fans in attendance give a respectful applause as they engage in some good old fashioned chain wrestling. Wristlocks and shit. It brings them back to the days of old when Dr. Remo would put on a wrestling clinic. There are no doctors in this ring though, no siree, although Vicious Vic will probably need an appointment to see one after a monkey flip gets a little out of hand and sends him flying to the outside concrete, face first. He is not even close to counting all of his stars before Katrina takes advantage of him like he was a hot jock who spurned her and she was gonna get hers. She plays his ribs like a xylophone with her boot while Matt Stone runs interference with the referee.

Jon McDaniel: Do you think having two referees would solve this distraction epidemic we have?

Brian Rentfro: The second referee would just distract the first one and the wrestlers wouldn't even have to try to get away with anything.

Back in the ring, Stone goes to work at stomping on Vic's fragile head because he is not very nice like that. The network powers that be thought it a good time to scrawl an aspirin advertisement across the bottom of the screen. Vic rallies back and shows why people call him Vicious by head butting Stone in the stones. The moustached referee is straight over and in a thick Italian accent he tells Vic "You a-slap-ah-him-I-a-slap-a-you!". Vic nods to show that he understands, but really he doesn't understand one fucking word that was said. Vic starts beating Stone off like a hobo looking for money to hook up his next hit of crack. He Irish whip's the shit out of him and back body drops him straight to Hell. He punches with his left and punches with his right but Stone keeps coming back up like a yoyo. Finally Stone has enough of this cycle and bails to the outside.

Jon McDaniel: We are used to seeing these kind of delaying tactics from Matt Stone.

Brian Rentfro: Yeah, the guy likes delaying so much that he was probably responsible for me missing my connecting flight yesterday. The fucker.

Matt Stone gets adequate enough breathing time and tries to get back in, but Vic decides to bring him in the hard way by using the ropes as a sling shot. Stone pops back up but Vic drop kicks him back down. Again, Matt Stone bails to the outside, but this time more frustrated. He storms over to the timekeepers table and grabs all the belts, even Vic's Grizzly Beer title. He brings all of them into the ring as Katrina hops up onto the apron to distract the referee. Matt Stone grabs the Intercontinental title and charges at Vic Wagner, but Vic sees it coming and spin kicks it out of his hands. The belt goes spinning away as Matt goes and fetches the Grizzly title instead. He charges again, but this time Vic boots him in the gut and the belt drops at his feet. Stone staggers away to his World title as Vic picks up his Grizzly title. They glare at each other and both charge head on, their titles shining in the lights. BOOM! They both connect to the head with solid belt shots and collapse to the mat. The referee turns back around and sees them both laid out on the mat. He begins a 10 count.

Brian Rentfro: We need to get The Count from Sesame Street as a guest referee some week.

Jon McDaniel: Does this have any relevance to the match?

Brian Rentfro: No, I just really like Sesame Street.

1... 2.... 3... 4... Matt Stone begins to stir... 5... 6... He crawls towards Vic Wagner... 7... 8... he drops an arm across him in a cover attempt.

DING! DING! DING!

Announcer: The winner of this match by pinfall, "The Rolling Stone" Matt Stone!!!

Once again, REBEL Pro's Justin Case comes out to attack someone. This time, its Vic Wagner. The exhausted Wagner isn't able to put up much of a fight and is easy pickings for the invader.

Marvin Wood vs Cody Bogard

Singles Match


Eric Emerson: “Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is our main event of the evening.”

The lights suddenly dim down as the opening intro to Naked Arms plays. Once the intro finishes and goes into the main theme, smoke emerges from near the entrance way.

A figure emerges from the smoke, standing while looking at the fans as he stands in the shadows. The figure is seen as strobe lights go off to reveal Cody Bogard posing at the entrance way. Cody makes his way to the ring.

All those dreams, all of my hope, all life come undone
In a world beaten and broken I can see a rising sun
Burning down, scorching the earth, nowhere left to hide
Try to stop all this destruction, find a way, turn the tide
Reveal the bond that's made
Between the light and the shade

Cody makes his way over to the ring, springing up to the ring apron, climbing the turnbuckle and posing with his arms open in a pose.

Shining white and hot is a moon so unforgiving
The break of day will leave a scar
Nothing we believe can protect us from tomorrow
Enjoy today from where we are

Eric Emerson: “Introducing first, from San Mateo, California, weighing in at two-hundred, ten pounds….Cody Bogard!”

I will believe to the end
Even with my face pressed to the fire
I won't be shaken or moved
By the heat getting closer and higher

Sink or swim
Lose or win
Hold on with my naked arms

Cody jumps from the turnbuckle as he thrusts his arm into the air to a hail of cheers.

All those dreams, all of my hope, all life come undone
In a world beaten and broken I can see a rising sun
Burning down, scorching the earth, nowhere left to hide
Try to stop all this destruction, find a way, turn the tide
Reveal the bond that's made
Between the light and the shade

Cody takes his time to prepare for the match as the theme fades out.

The first few chords of Edward Elgar's fourth Pomp & Circumstance March are played from the PA system into the arena. After a few seconds, "The Purist" Marvin Wood appears from behind the curtain with a dour expression on his face. He walks to the middle of the stage area and stands there for a few seconds, to survey the audience. He then begins walking down the entrance-way. Many of the members of the audience boo, some catcall and a few cheer. He looks at no-one as he approaches the ring, but stretches his fingers a bit. He stretches three fingers on each hand, first, and then four fingers on each hand.

Eric Emerson: “Introducing his opponent…from Pontefract, England, weighing in at two-hundred and thirty pounds, he is the Purist, Marvin Wood!”

Marvin walks towards the ring steps, and walks up them and towards the middle of the apron, sliding his hand over the top rope as he does so. He pauses there for a few seconds, before entering the ring, right leg first and then left leg. He enters the ring with plenty of pomp and circumstance, as if he were a foot taller than he is. He then walks over to the opposite turnbuckle and waits.

Ding Ding

Jon McDaniel: “Here we have the Crown Jewel Marvin Wood looking to face off against former Grizzly Beer champion, Cody Bogard.”

Brian Rentfro: “Marvin looking to build momentum for Ground Zero”

The two men start to circle the ring before locking up in the middle of the ring. From the collar and elbow tie-up, Marvin ducks low and get’s behind Bogard, grabbing his right arm as he does and get’s him in a hammer lock, but voluntarily breaks it quickly as he grabs Cody’s head with a side headlock. Cody pushes Marvin off towards the ropes and ducks down as Marvin rebounds back, leaping over the prone Cody. Quickly getting to his feet, Cody flips Marvin over himself on his back with a deep arm drag. Wood get’s up quickly, as does Cody. Bogard goes for another arm drag, however Wood is able to counter with a knee to the ribs of Cody, Wood picking Cody up and slamming him down on the mat, quickly followed by a snap elbow drop. Wood goes for the first cover of the match.

One

Cody kicks out.

Jon McDaniel: “Wood seems to be on his game tonight, but don’t count out Cody, he’s looking for the upset.”

Brian Rentfro: “Did you see the intelligence though with Marvin Wood? Cody went for the same move a second time and the Crown Jewel knew just how to counter.”

Wood got back to his feet, watching down as Cody started to get up. Wood stayed on the offense, grabbing Cody in a front chancery as he was getting up and quickly dropping him straight down with a DDT. Wood rolled Cody over with another cover, hooking the outside leg.

One

Two

Kick out!

Cody was able to shoot his right shoulder off the mat again, rolling away to create enough space to get to his feet. Wood backed off when he got to his feet, watching Cody get up. As Cody turned around, Wood dashed at him, looking to hit with another stiff shot, but Cody lunged forward as Wood approached and speared him straight down to the mat. Instead of going for a cover, Cody started hammering down on Wood’s forehead, the crowd cheering with this offensive surge. The referee came over and forced Cody to break up the fisticuffs. Cody got to his feet as Marvin started to get up as well, but Cody knew he had to keep the offense going, so he charged as Wood who was on all fours at the moment and sent a stiff kick to his ribs, collapsing Wood. Cody then got on top of Wood’s back and started to set him up for a camel clutch submission hold.

Jon McDaniel: “Cody is looking for the submission here”

Brian Rentfro: “The Crown Jewel won’t give up that easily”

Truer words were never spoken as it wasn’t but a few second of being locked in the camel clutch that Marvin Wood was able to position his body and get his foot on the bottom rope. Of course, Cody released the hold and backed off, calling for Marvin to get back up. Wood was a little woozy from the blows to the head, and as he stumbles up to his feet, Cody Bogard kicked him in the stomach, doubling over Marvin and setting him up, picking him up high in the air and bringing him straight down on his back with the Bastera Bomb! Wood was down on the mat and Cody went for the cover

One

Two

Kick out!

This time it was Marvin Wood who kicked out of the pinning predicament. Cody didn’t get frustrated though, he stayed on the offense and picked Marvin up, sending him across the ring at the ropes, and with Marvin rebounding back, Cody leaps high in the air and wraps his legs around the head of Wood, flipping him over with a huricanranna and at the same time, trapping Wood’s legs and leaning forward with the pin fall.

One

Two

Wood is able to kick out again. This time Cody is a little annoyed. Bogard picks Wood up again and hits him across the face with a spinning elbow. Cody then gives Wood a straight kick to the side. Cody looks at his hand and goes for a straight right fist, but Wood is able to duck out of the way as Cody spins in front of him and has his waist grabbed by Wood, elevating Cody in the air and dropping him on the back of his head, bridging for the cover

One

Two

Cody kicked out, but Wood maintained his hold of him, bringing Cody back to his feet and lifting him up, dropping him again on the back of his head, once again bridging for another cover

One

Two

Cody was able to roll the shoulder up once again but still Marvin Wood persisted with his grip and once again Marvin brought Cody back to his feet, Bogard a little groggy at the time, but he was even more groggy when Wood lifted him up a third time, the back of his head slamming against the mat as the referee went down for the third fall.

Three!

The bell rang and Marvin Wood released Cody, rolling over and getting to his feet, having his hand raised in victory

Eric Emerson: Here is your winner, Marvin Wood!!”

Wood rolls out of the ring and walks up the ramp with his arm raised in victory

Brian Rentfro: “Marvin Wood gets the win here with the Suplex Labyrinth leading into Ground Zero!”

Jon McDaniel: “That’s right, next week we come at you for the last PWA event of the year, PWA presents X-Mas at Ground Zero!”

Brian Rentfro: We're not done yet, Jon! Here comes Justin Case! Again!

Case springs over the barricade and rolls into the ring and starts attacking the fallen Bogard as Marvin Wood leaves his opponent to his fate. Moments later, "The Final Countdown" starts to play and the Phoenix comes out and heads to the ring. He runs to the ring and slides in. As he does, Case backs up to the opposite corner and stares down the PWA President.

Rob Robinson: So, you think a REBEL Pro wrestler can get away with coming into my company and beat up my employees?

Justin Case just stares.

Rob Robinson: Thomas Manchester Black, Dallas Hoover, and now Cody Bogard? Two of the three men in my Santa's Surprise match at Xmas @ Ground Zero?

Robinson turns to the fans.

Rob Robinson: Do you think I'd let a REBEL Pro wrestler do something like that?

The crowd boos at the mention of REBEL Pro.

Rob Robinson: You're damn right I wouldn't.

Robinson heads towards Justin Case, who advances himself. The two men meet up in the middle of the ring and stand there, head to head. Robinson raises his right hand, a fist cocked and ready to go. Case mirrors his action as the two stand, waiting for the other to act first. Robinson decides to jump and swings his fist forward with Case doing the same. They suddenly stop and hug, laughing together. They step away from each other and shake hands, still laughing.

Rob Robinson: Yeah, you'd all goddamn right I wouldn't let a REBEL Pro guy pull this kind of stunt in my company. But a couple hours ago, I signed one of REBEL Pro's biggest stars to a PWA contract, and as we all know, whatever one of my employees does to another one of me employees? Well, that's just good business. And as far as I'm concerned, all Justin did tonight was get a head start on his debut match and help me sell some pay per views.

The screen fades as the two men continue celebrating in the ring.
