Kyle Stevenson vs Project X


The match is announced, but instead of Stevenson or P-X coming out, Hunter Sullivan and Chamelion come brawling out from backstage. The referee corps come out and separates them, but the continue trying to fight. Robinson comes on the ADC-Tron and warns them to keep their cool and save it for their match later or they'll both be suspended like Scott Strader.

A Moment with the Grizzly Beer Champion


The lights dim as on the Chaos-Tron we see a wintery landscape and hear the electric guitar rifts of Green Jelly.


The bear went over the mountain to see what he could see. HEY!


We watch as a Grizzly Bear lumbers up a mountain side


The other side of the mountain was all that he could see, SO!

We watch as the mountain decends away from the bear eventually ending in a wide open desert scape.


He went back over the mountain and what did he find. HEY!

As he tuns back we see bshind him is El Rey de Corazones climbing up the mountain carrying the Grizzly Beer Championship over one shoulder.


And what he saw was a Luchedore climbing the mountain side!

As we focus on El Rey on the screen the live El Rey de Corazones comes through the entrance curtain holding the Grizzly Beer Championship.


HEY, IS THAT THE GIZZLY BEER CHAMPION OVER THERE?!!

El Rey raises the Title Belt over his head to the cheering of the fans. As he does so the music begins to fade out and Montaña Rose comes out behind him with two microphones in hand. She hands one of them to El Rey and as he speaks she interprets for him.


¡Hola mis amigos!! Quiero agradecerle por su ayuda durante mi tiempo lejos del anillo de lucha. Debo mi victoria a los muchos correos electrónicos encouraging y consigo tarjetas bien enviadas por usted.
Hello my friends!! I want to thank you for your support during my time away from the wrestling ring. I feel that I owe my victory to the many encouraging e-mail messages and get well cards sent by all of you.

His acknowledgment of the fans garners an immediat cheer of response.


Usted me inspiró todo a que se empujara más difícilmente durante mi recuperación y es a usted que dedico cada fósforo que lucho como el Campeón de la Cerveza del Grisáceo.
You all inspired me to push myself harder during my recovery and it is to all of you that I dedicate each and every match I fight as the Grizzly Beer Champion.

The fans start chanting back and forth "Casa" "Nova", "Casa" "Nova" which continues untill El Rey raises up one hand.


Ahora, sé que algo pudo preguntar mi worthieness para usar esta correa. Después de todo el una porción del fósforo implicó la ocasión pura. Y los ventiladores eran desafortunados que no consiguieron ver el emperador Ian en la acción debido a un ataque del exterior.
Now, I know some might question my worthieness to wear this Belt. After all a portion of the match did involve pure chance. And the fans were unfortunate that they did not get to see Emperor Ian in action due to an outside attack.

A low murmer of rises from the croud as some of the fans reluctantly agree.


Tan para mi primera defensa estoy pidiendo que tenemos una revancha entre Mike, Ian y mismo. Esta manera puede ser probado si o no soy verdad un campeón digno.
So for my first defence I am requesting that we have a rematch between Mike, Ian and myself. This way it can be proven as to whether or not I am truely a worthy champion.

The Fans give Rey a resounding cheer as the Grizzly Beer Champion bows and waves. Then as he turns to exit the arena, we hear The Bear Song fade back in and flower petals begin to float down from the rafters.

Alex Wilkie vs Scottie Snow


Alex and Scottie had some major scores to settle in this match, but Scottie's main concern was getting a hold on Robinson. Scottie was also trying to prove to Alex that he was the joke instead of Scottie being the joke that everyone thinks he is. It started off sort of slow with vicious shots from Scottie, which stunned Alex momentarily. Scottie delivered many stiff shots to the man behind the Talent is a Lie episodes. Scottie hit a partial Snow Plow and went for a cover but managed only a count of two as Alex got his foot on the ropes.

Alex took control after he reversed an Irish Whip attempt by Snow dropping the former protege of Robinson with a back elbow shot. Scottie's nose was busted open and the blood poured from his exceptionally white face, staining the skin a dark red color. Scottie was valiant fighting through the pain and blood. Alex took the ten year veteran to the limit and ground his punches and elbows into the busted nose of Scottie throughout the match. There was not many technical holds in this contest each of the combattents wanting to stiff the other man through the building. Alex hit his Grade A Stunner, but only managed a two count as Scottie reached his foot over the bottom rope.

Alex pulls Scottie to his feet and sets him up for the Canadian Destroyer, but Snow body drops Wilkie instead. Snow backs up and waits for Wilkie to get to his feet and when he does, Snow runs forward and nails the Snow Plow! Snow covers and nearly gets three, but before the referee's hand hits the mat the third time, Snow is yanked out of the ring by Moke Doshky, who tosses Snow into the air and hits him with the Blitzkrieg before tossing him back into the ring for Wilkie to cover.

Winner: Alex Wilkie

Krymson Dragons vs Hayes & Sullivan


A surprisingly even match with Hayes and Raizzor starting things off. The two go back and forth with Jethro getting the better of the ring-rusty Raizzor. A really great match then took place, like imagine the best tag match you've ever seen and multiply it by like twenty and you'll almost be at this match. Moves happened that I don't even know the names of, some of them off the top rope. Women were fainting and grown men were weeping. The four men manage to fight their way up the ramp, through the concourse, out the parking lot, down the road and into a gay bar. Somehow through this carnage, Chamelion and Sullivan became the legal men through a complicated series of tags as the two teams were brawling up the street. Inside the bar, Raizzor and Hayes end up fighting out the back door while Chamelion had Sullivan by the throat, ready for a chokeslam. Then, a gay guy gooses Chamelion, who turns around in shock. Sullivan sees his shot, kicks Chamelion in the stomach and hits a DDT. Too bad for him, that was only good for a two count!

The two fight out the front door, leaving their partners to fight themselves alone in the wilderness of Cleveland. They fight past Jacobs Field, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Drew Carey's childhood home before ending up inside the Cleveland Natural History Museum. After paying admission to enter, while still fighting, the rumble through the lobby. We find out when they're paying that Chamelion is a member of the National Natural History Museum Association Boosters, so he got a 10% discount! They fight past the gift shop, then back again where Sullivan grabs a poster tube and whacks Chamelion in the head with it! He covers, but the poster tube was just cardboard and Chamelion just slaps him in the face for the audacity of it! They get back up and fight throughout the museum, not even stopping when they get to the giant colon exhibit. They fight through a couple hundred yard of small intestine, coming out the other side, the opposite of how nature intended. They end up in the dinosaur room and Chamelion charges Sullivan, who jumps out of the way at the last second. Chamelion ends up spearing the leg of the T-Rex skeleton on display. The whole thing starts to wobble as Chamelion looks up. He says, "OH SHI" before the entire skeleton collapses on top of him. Sullivan grabs Chamelion's foot, pulls him out of the wreckage and makes the cover for the win!

Winner: Hunter Sullivan & Jethro Hayes

Riona Langly vs Corey Lazarus


Eric Emerson: The following match is set for one fall with a thirty minute time limit and it is your Rampage main event of the evening...

The lights in the arena die, and the ADC-Tron shows nothing but a black and white film countdown

A massive drumroll cues up The Crown's "Crowned in Terror," and brutal metal riffing pours from the PA system. The riffs build and then die as one guitar
plays, with the drums and other instruments coming in to accent. The 35-second mark cues...

HYUH!

...and Corey Lazarus emerges from the entrance curtain, his eyes hidden behind his trademark pair of silver-rimmed Ray Ban's, his arms hanging at his sides
after he runs his fingers over his moustache and goatee.

Eric Emerson: Introducing at this time...

A primal scream covers the music at the 44-second mark, and Lazarus steps further onto the stage, turning around slowly to take a quick look at the ADC-Tron
before stopping at the end of the stage, his back to the ramp and the ring before turning around.

Oh, it's not over yet
Consuming flames of the faceless one
There's no time to repent
As you bow before the serpent god

Eric Emerson: He weighs in tonight at 230 pounds...

Lazarus jogs in place at the end of the stage, shaking out his limbs, and then begins walking solemnly down the ramp. He points up at the ADC-Tron, focusing
everybody's attention to images of his glory: dropping Phoenix on his head with the Mercury Driver to win the 2008 Who's The Man tournament; kicking out
after being drilled with Raizzor's Tombstone Shoulderbreaker at Revolutions Per Minute; rolling out of the way of Sean Moro's Near Death Experience and
kipping up to his feet, lifting Moro up and dropping him head-first to the mat with the Mercury Driver to capture the DRWF Eternal title.

There's no turning back
Festering demons to hatred sworn
And ready to attack
The jaws of death are hungry like a war

Eric Emerson: And standing at 6-foot-1...

Corey turns around to face the ring as he reaches the bottom of the ramp, and then pulls himself up onto the apron, placing one foot in the ring between
the top and middle ropes, using one hand to hold the top rope for balance and the other to cover his eyes as he scans the crowd again.

Songs of death shall kill the lies forever, and ever
Baptized, burning, cold flames will purify my soul
Our hearts are rotten to the core

Eric Emerson: Hailing from Hollywood, California...

Lazarus steps into the ring and then walks to the middle of the ring, his hands on his hips and his trademark devilish smirk on his face. The music keeps
pounding away as Corey drops to a knee, his head bowed and a single fist placed on the mat, his other hand resting on his knee.

Behead the prophets
Their skulls: trophies in the final war

Eric Emerson: He is "The Premiere Attraction"...

Lazarus bobs his head quickly to the beat of the song, breathing heavier and heavier as he does so.

The plague of man, crowned in terror
Hate and soulless might

Corey leaps to his feet as the main riff returns at the end of the chorus, his arms spread out to his side after he rips his Ray Ban's off, turning his
body around to all sides of the arena as flashbulbs go off everywhere.

Eric Emerson: ...COREY LAZARUS!!

"Crowned in Terror" fades into silence as Corey backs up to his corner, removing his Ray Ban's and handing them off to a ringside attendant. He adjusts
the tape on his hands, and then stretches his legs out using the middle ropes.

A soft pinging noise fills the speakers, the lights flickering 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 claps along with the music 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 pyro goes off as the metal part of the intro begins, 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, the red bangs at
the front hiding her face as she silohettes herself on the light.

### 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.

Eric Emerson: Introducing first/next... coming to us from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! She weighed in this morning at 140 pounds, and stands at five foot
nine inches. She is the current, reigning, defending... UNCONTESTED, UNDEFEATED, AND UNDISPUTED... PIONEER WRESTLING ASSOCIATION INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION!!!!

### The first rock thrown again ###
### Welcome to hell, little Saint ###
### Mother Gaia in slaughter ###
### Welcome to paradise soldier ###

Riona unstraps the PWA Intercontinental Championship from her waist and raises it high with one arm, pacing across the entrance ramp and showing everyone
what she's got as the lasers turn back to red with Tajra's voice returning.

### My first cry neverending ###
### All life is to fear for life ###
### You fool, you wanderer ###
### You challenged the gods and lost ###

Eric Emerson: Ladies and gentlemen, this is.... RIOOONNNNAAAA LANNGGGLLLLYYYY!!!

Riona lowers her arm 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 with the Intercontinental Championship in her right hand as silver pyro shoots
up from the other three turnbuckles with a loud pop as soon as the chorus begins.

### Save yourself a penny for the ferryman ###
### Save yourself and let them suffer ###
### In hope ###
### In love ###
### This world ain'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.

DING! DING!

Riona and Corey lock up in the middle of the ring, Corey's height and weight advantage giving him the win in the grapple hold. Riona ducks under the behind the back wristlock attempt where she scoops and slams Corey down to the mat. LAZ rolls over looking up at Riona, who is still upset at her loss at Christmas at Ground Zero and appears to be ready to take out her week long frustrations on Corey.

Jon McDaniel: Riona determined to prove that she is indeed capable of holding the PWA Heavyweight Belt.

Brian Rentfro: But she can't, she couldn't get the job done in the match.

Jon McDaniel: Phoenix screwed everyone.

Brian Rentfro: That is why he is champion.

Riona locks on an ankle submission move, trying to injury Corey and keep him at less than one hundred percent. Corey kicks Riona in the face and she bounces off the ropes from the force of the kick. Corey is trying to get to his feet, bulldog takedown by Riona into a side headlock. Riona grinds in the hold and Corey is trying to push up to his feet. Corey is up to one knee and Riona is seeming to allow him up to his feet. She drops the hold as Corey gains his feet, she spins around sweeping the legs out from under Corey as he falls she spins back around lifting the falling Corey spinning him around with a spinning inverted DDT. Cover...

ONE... TWO...

Brian Rentfro: LAZ kicks out just in time.

Jon McDaniel: Riona with something to prove here Brian.

Riona down at Corey's feet looking for a submission move that will at least wear Corey down some. She bends over to grab the ankle from earlier small package from Corey.

ONE... TWO...

Jon McDaniel: Corey with a surprise move nearly pins Riona.

Brian Rentfro: It was a pin, but the ref took way to long to count.

Riona manages to roll on through as Corey gets back to his feet. Riona charges, back body drop and Riona lands hard back first on the mat. Corey smirks as he walks over to Riona, who is holding the lower part of her back. She rolls over right into a soccer kick from Corey that knocks her back over onto her back; Corey's smirk deepins into a grin of triumph as he nears the fallen and still injured Riona. He lifts her to her knees, driving her down to the mat with a DDT and nonchalantly covers Riona.

ONE...

Jon McDaniel: It'll take more than that to pin Riona.

Brian Rentfro: I have to agree, the tenacity in Riona is unparalleled here in PWA.

Again Riona is lifted from the mat, driven back down to the mat with a body slam again another nonchalant cover.

ONE...--Riona kicks out immediately and Corey seems shocked, but gathers himself quickly. Riona is whipped into the ropes, spinebuster to the mat and Corey is up to his feet stomping away at Riona's skull. Knee drop to Riona's forehead and a wound from last week is threatening to start bleeding again. For a third time he lifts Riona up to her feet and with a knee lift to her gut backs up delivering a fierce roundhouse kick to her skull, the force of the blow rolling Riona over in mid air to the mat on her back. Corey doesn't seem to be finished as he lifts Riona up to her feet for the fourth time in this match to Irish whip her across the ring. Corey charges at the oncoming Riona. Riona leaps up into the air for a cross body block, but she goes over Corey's head planting him with a sort of diving inverted spinning DDT maneuver into a pin.

ONE... TWO... THREE

DING! DING! DING!

Jon McDaniel: Riona did it, and what was that she did?

Brian Rentfro: Desperation John, desperation.

Eric Emerson: Winner of the match... Riona Langly
