Jon McDaniel: We're coming to you live from the beautiful Pyramid overlooking the Mississippi River in Memphis. Tonight is an edition of Rampage unlike any you've seen before. Tonight, we only have one match, but what a match it is going to be. 25 of our top wrestlers will be taking part in a special Spider's Pit match. It is similar to a battle royal, with one big difference. The PWA had a special ring made for this match. It is four times the size of a normal wrestling ring, and in the center of it is a 6 foot hole filled with spiders. The only way to eliminate someone is to put them into the hole.

Brian Rentfro: Here's a quick run down of the participants as the ring crew puts the finishing touches on the ring. Rage, Fear, Panzadise, Too Panz, Big Poppa Panzy, Steve Morley, Scottie Snow, Raizzor, King Agony, Nightstryker, Brymstone, Troy Martin, Metalhead, Sirus, Prisoner, Grifter, Fletcher, Masked Lard, the Dragon, Mokeangelo, Ert'ceps, Mako, KWB, Grendle, and the Shocker.

Jon McDaniel: The final eight people left in the match will go on to take part in a tournament for the World Title. The winner gets a $100,000 grand prize, so the stakes are high.

(The camera pans across the crowd, showing signs such as "Al for President" and "Turtle Power!". It pans up to a luxury box were The Spider and President Robinson are sitting, drinking wine.)

Jon McDaniel: The ring is set up and the spiders are in the pit. The fight is about to start!

("I Know Why You Wanna Hate Me(MI2 Theme)" by Limp Bizkit blares over the p.a. system. Up on the ADC-Tron appear the words "Big Daddy" in big silver letters. The video screen shows his matches, and his winning of the IC belt. The lights start flashing red, blue, purple, as well as green laser-lights flashing. Strobe lights flash in the entryway He comes, escorted by Britanny out and stands on the ramp.)

Big Daddy: I've just got one question. What the hell is going on here? There is a fight so people can be in this World Title tournament, but Big Daddy isn't invited? In case you've all forgotten, I'm the IC champion. That means I'm the automatic number one contender. It is a travesty that I'm not included.

(Brymstone walks out behind Big Daddy and Britnany.)

Jon McDaniel: Brymstone is out! He grabs Big Daddy by the hair he gives him an inverted DDT! He picks Big Daddy up by the throat and hits the Pits of Hell on the steel entry ramp!

Brian Rentfro: Look at that! He's taking the IC belt off Big Daddy and bashing his head in with it!

Jon McDaniel: He picks up Big Daddy by the throat again and holds him, walking over to the edge of the ramp. He chokeslams Big Daddy down to the concrete floor! That's at least an eight foot drop, and he landed hard on his back and head!

Brian Rentfro: Brymstone is putting on the belt and walking backstage now. What was that all about?

(Heavy by Collective Soul starts and pyros light up the Pyramid.)

Jon McDaniel: Here come the wrestlers to the ring.

(The 25 men enter the ring and spread out to the corners, all avoiding the pit in the middle, where even now, spiders are beginning to crawl out.)

Jon McDaniel: The bell is ringing, and the fight has started! Raizzor and Nightstryker are duking it out in a rematch from Chaos. King Agony sneaks up behind Metalhead and cathes him in a back suplex. Metalhead blocks a punch and hits one of his own on the former World champ. Ert'ceps helps Metalhead double team King Agony. They whip him into the ropes and duck down for a double back body drop into the pit, but Agony stops and turns it into a double DDT!

Brian Rentfro: Rage and Too Panz are fighting on the other side of the ring. Rage has TP in an abdominal stretch, and is using the ropes for leverage. That's 100% legal in this match, too. Mako is gnawing on Big Poppa Panzy in a corner. The Shocker goes up to the top turnbuckle in an effort to bring Brymstone down with a flying cross body. Brym catches him and casually carries him to the pit and tosses him in. The Shocker has been eliminated!

Jon McDaniel: Raizzor and Nightstryker are fighting closer to the pit. The Masked Lard is still sitting in the corner. The Dragon and Mokeangelo are fighting the Brothers Grimm. Sirus and Dragon are punching their way closer to the hole. Dragon blocks a punch and then whips Sirus into the Prisoner. Scottie Snow clips the Prisoner's knee and he goes down. Steve Morley rushes in and slingshots the Prisoner into the pit, eliminating him.

Brian Rentfro: Big Poppa Panzy dropkicks Mako. Even as BBP is punching him, Mako is still trying to bite his fists. Sirus and Fletcher are trying to double suplex the Dragon into the pit. The Dragon hooks his foot behind Sirus' to block it. Ouch! The Dragon brings his knee up, sending Sirus folding over. Fletcher is stunned and looks at Sirus, giving the Dragon a chance to superkick him into the bit. Grifter right behind the Dragon, dropkicking him in right behind Fletcher. That's four down and twenty-one to go!

Jon McDaniel: Mako and BPP fighing close to the pit, each trying to get the other to fall. Mokeangelo takes a running leap at Grifter, who drops to the mat. Moke sails right over him and into Mako and Big Poppa Pump, elminating all three men! Over on the other side, Raizzor has just back body dropped Grendle into the pit. Panzadise nearly takes off the head of King Agony with a clothesline. Scottie Snow has Fear trapped in the corner, climbs up and starts punching him with the crowd counting along. Fear holds Snow's legs, walks toward the middle of the ring and gives Snow a short powerbomb into the pit.

Brian Rentfro: Panzadise is still beating on King Agony, edging him closer to the hole. Panzadise kicks him in the stomach, and he Panzadise Bombs King Agony into the pit! Raizzor is pulling the Masked Lard to the pit. The Lard just sat down at the beginning of the match and hasn't moved since. KWB grabs the other leg of the Lard and helps Raizzor out. Troy Martin and Ert'ceps are fighting close to the pit now, trading blows and waiting for the other to fall. KWB and Raizzor are coming up right next to them, pulling the Lard closer to the pit. The Masked Lard is too fat and the supports for the mat around the hole are breaking! The section of mat around the pit just caved in spilling Raizzor, KWB, the Lard, Ert'ceps, and Troy Martin all into the spiders! Only 10 men are left now!

Jon McDaniel: That's right. Rage, Fear, Panzadise, Too Panz, Steve Morley, Nightstryker, Brymstone, Metalhead, Sirus, and Grifter are still in the ring. Metalhead sends Too Panz into the ropes and drop toe holds him into the pit. Rage and Sirus are fighting now, with Sirus hitting a vertical suplex on Rage. Fear just gave Steve Morely a double underhook powerbomb. Panzadise comes up behind Grifter and back suplexes him into the pit! Rage, Fear, Panzadise, Morley, Nightstryker, Brymstone, Metalhead, and Sirus are in the tournament for the World Title!

Brian Rentfro: Did you say Steve Morley? It must be the end of the world as we know it, and to be honest, I'm a little queasy at the thought of Morley maybe becoming the champ.

Jon McDaniel: I know what you mean. Speaking of Morley, he has Metalhead in a fireman's carry and just hits an inverted DVD, sending the TV champ to the pit. Rage scoops up Sirus and walks to the pit. He drops the Moran in, but Sirus holds on to the edge, he's not eliminated yet! Sirus is pulling himself out of the pit, but here comes Rage with a baseball slide, knocking Sirus in! Rage is getting to his feet, but Nightstryker is waiting for him. A superkick later, and Rage is gone. Panzadise sees his shot and hip tosses Nightstryker in now!

Brian Rentfro: This is a most unusual final four. Fear, Panzadise, Brymstone, and by some miracle, Steve Morley. Dise and Brymstone advance on Morley, who backs right into Fear who sends Morley down with the Death Wish. Brymstone grabs Morley's legs, while Dise gets his arms and the toss him into the pit like a sack of potatoes! Lightning quick, Fear scoops up Brymstone and sets him up for a shoulder breaker right next to the pit! Brymstone worms over Fear's shoulder and then shoves him in from behind! Panzadise was standing back, watching and now he moves in. Brymstone turns around only to find a kick to the stomach. Panzadise is setting him up for a Panzadise Bomb into the pit!

Jon McDaniel: Look! A hand is coming out of the pit and holding on to Brymstone's foot! Dise can't lift him! Brymstone back drops Panzadise into the pit! Brymstone is the winner! We're out of time, but tune in Wednesday when the first round of tournament matches will start!
