"The Sin and the Sentence" by Trivium blasts through the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota as XIII comes on the air! The stage explodes in a dizzy array of fireworks, highlighted by the castle-type design. Nikki Venus and Nate Nytro sit ringside for the contests, which are close to kicking off! Teo del Sol and Gemini Battle begin within the ring, already surrounded by two hundred light tubes!
TEO DEL SOL VS GEMINI BATTLE
200 LIGHT TUBES DEATHMATCH
Nikki Venus: This 200 light tube match is underway. Gemini Battle is fighting for his own soul. He wants to send Teo del Sol to Hell in his place.
Nate Nytro: That shit is whack. The craziest shit happens here at WCF.
Gemini rushes to the corner and grabs two light tubes and swings them around dramatically and skillfully like a fucking ninja would swing around bowstaffs. Teo does the same but accidentally smashes them together causing them to crash in his face, sending shrapnel towards Gemini who tries to dodge the flying glass.
Nate Nytro: That’s two down, 198 to go.
Geminin gets rid of another two by smashing one after another on the back of the distracted Teo del Sol before tossing him harshly into the corner by the collar of his jacket, his back crushing against another stack of light tubes placed there. The ring is already a bed of shredded glass and the match has just begun. Gemini runs towards Teo with a shoulder block and delivers a hard shot to the midsection of Sol. He drops to the mat and Gemini climbs up to the top to set up for a moonsault.
Nate Nytro: Good sequence of moves from Gemini! He’s beating Teo like he’s got a grudge to settle.
Nikki Venus: That’s the whole point of-
Nate Nytro: Moonsault!
As he flips through the air Teo reaches out desperately and hits an upside down Gemini Battle in the stomach with a baseball swing of a light tube! The thing not only stops Gemini’s momentum, but he crashes like a heap as the tube explodes across his stomach! Gemini writhes in pain as Teo lifts him to his feet. He throws Gemini hard face first into the remaining corner of the ring with standing light tubes face first! Gemini’s head bobbles as it collides with the ring post, but Gemini stops himself short right before connecting with the glass!
Nate Nytro: I’m surprised there aren’t little birds flying around his head after that!
But then Teo comes rushing forwards with a stinger splash in the corner landing on Gemini’s back and crushing the tubes into his face and chest! Shards of glass and powder fly throughout the ring and the audience roars in approval!
Crowd: Thir-Teen! Thir-Teen! Thir-Teen!
Teo dives out of the way as soon as he can, but damage has been done to him too.
Nikki Venus: Both men are bloodier than I was when I woke up.
Nate Nytro: No one wants to hear about your period.
Nikki Venus: Oh, no. It wasn’t my blood I was covered in…
Nate Nytro: What the f….
Teo gets to his feet first as Gemini pulls a chunk of glass out of his arm and tosses it at the standing luchador. Teo looks down at his opponent with a look of remorse in his eyes. Gemini takes the moment of hesitation to lunge at his knees and take him down with a terrible looking tackle. Teo lands on his back and rolls out of the bottom of the ring, trying to keep momentum on his side!
Nate Nytro: You gotta go for the kill at XII buddy!
Nikki Venus: Just like in the bedroom.
Nate: Nikki, noone’s going to listen, just-
Gemini runs and delivers a suicide dive over the top rope! Showing no regard for his own safety, Gemini hurls himself at Teo! The momentum is enough to throw himself into the third row! Teo holds his arms out to keep Gemini from landing in the audience, and gets blasted against the guard rail as a result! Gemini gets to his feet and panders to the crowd for the first time in over a year and he is pleased.
Despite the positive reaction, a few fans in the front row are calling for Teo to get up, the same fans Teo saved from taking a crossbody as well.
Gemini finds another stack of light tubes and drags them towards him. He has a wild look in his eyes, spurned on by the cheers of the crowd and even more so by the few who insist on cheering for Teo.
Teo begins to get to his feet and is met with a vicious swing of a light tube!
Teo drops hard to the floor but tries again to get up again…only to be met with another vicious blow.
Nikki Venus: You want me to talk about the match? Fine! Last year at War these two men had a hellacious match to be named the King of All Media. Teo del Sol was known as Teddy Blaze then and he was relentless in his assault towards the former Wolrd Champion. Gemini Battle persevered and retained his TV Championship last night, but ultimately lost the title of King of all Media. They also put guest announcer Howard Stern through a table.
In the midst of the history lesson, Gemini relentlessly smashes Teo with light bulbs! The effect seems to backfire though, the crowd is losing support for Gemini with each smash, feeling sympathetic for Teo who seems to be willing to take the punishment!
Nate Nytro: Gemini Battle is not the type of man who forgets a beating like that. He returned from the pits of hell to get revenge on David Sanchez and did so by eliminating him from War and ruining his chances at winning the world Title. Now he’s got his eyes set on Teo del Sol.
Nikki Venus: there’s only one problem with his plan though…
Gemini continues to deliver swift hard blows with light tube after light tube to Teo’s chest and head, but the Texican Luchador continues to get back to an upright position every time. The crowd is beginning to turn on Gemini as he refuses to relent his advantage over the fallen champion.
Nate Nytro: What’s wrong with his plan?
Nikki Venus: Gemini wants revenge on Teddy Blaze, not Teo del Sol.
Nate Nytro: Aren’t they the same person?
Nikki Venus: Yes and no. they’re the same person like I’m the same person that murdered that trio of gigolos after I had my way with them last night. Hence waking up in a pool of someone else’s blood.
Nate Nytro: I feel like we need to talk about that later, but for now I think you’re right. Gemini is starting to slow down his assault.
Gemini yells at Teo “STAY DOWN! WHY WON’T YOU STAY DOWN!?!?”
Teo screams back “IT’S OK. I’M READY TO PAY FOR MY SINS”
Gemini grabs the last light tube remaining and holds it high over his head. Teo closes his eyes and puts his arms behind his back like a samurai ready to accept his fate after losing a battle. The Gemini hesitates.
Nikki Venus: I think he’s realizing what he’s done. He’s already sentenced Teo del Sol to eternity in Hell but he’s realized he’s made a mistake. This final blow could send him there and Gemini doesn’t want to do it any longer.
Gemini drops the light tube and looks at his bloody hands mouthing ‘what have I done?”
Meanwhile Teo opens his eyes and sees the look on Gemini’s face. His eyes roll, the punishment showing on his face
Nate Nytro: I don’t think he knows where he is!
Barely alive, moving only on instinct, he lunges forward and grabs Gemini! Gemini stumbles backwards and Teo lands on top of him! The referee is in perfect position, slapping his hand on the glass covered ground for the 1…2…3!!!!
Nikki Venus: HE DID IT!
Nate Nytro: Teo gets the win again!
Gemini screams at Teo “WHAT HAVE YOU DONE YOU FOOL! THAT WAS MY CHANCE!”
When a thunderous rumble comes from backstage. Flames arise from the entrance way and burns a stagehand who runs off aflame.
Nikki Venus: I think I know who that is…
Nate Nytro: Who… who is it?
A chair rolls through the flames and a man with long black hair sits on it leading it with a finger and speaking through a machine.
Nate Nytro: Oh my god! That’s…
Nate Nytro: It can’t be… But it is!
Gemini moves back, ready for the ultimate evil to walk through the curtain, Teo braces himself, regaining some of his senses… An ominous figure appears from the flames…
Nikki Venus: It’s HOWARD STERN!
Nate Nytro: WHAT THE FUCK?
Howard Stern speaks through his speak and spell sounding robot.
Howard Stern: Last year you STOLE the title of King of all Media from me. That was MY Title. I’m here to take it back. Anyone can be bought, and I bought your soul from the devil, Gemini. If you want it back all you need to do is rid the world of Teo del Sol, send him to hell and give ME the title of King of All Media! The choice is yours.
Gemini looks at Teo and at the shard of glass he has in his hand. Teo simply looks at Gemini and nods his head in approval as he raises his head to expose his neck, willing to give up his own life for the soul of a respected enemy.
Gemini drops the glass.
Howard Stern: suit yourself. I’ll have to take it. ATTACK!
Robin and Artie Lange emerge from the crowd and attack Gemini and Teo. They deliver boots to the two men who finally escape their attack. Gemini grabs Robin, and then Teo grabs Artie and they start to gain the upper hand themselves. Finally, with both of them in opposite corners of the ring Gemini turns and looks at Teo. Both nod and they throw Robin and Artie into each other. The collide chest first into each other and they both explode!
Metal pieces fly all over the ring and all that is left are mechanical heads of Robin yelling “Oh howard… Oh Howard…” and Arties yelling “Fucking jews! Fuck them all!” as their eyes fade and they silence.
Howard Stern: So you bested Mecha Artie and Robin. But you’re not prepared for this.
He pushes a button but nothing happens.
Howard Stern: Damned machine, I thought it was flawless.
Voice: Looking for this?
Howard turns around and sees “the Livewire” Grayson Pierce holding the mechanical head of Howard stern by the hair.
Howard Stern: MY MECHA STERN!!! HOW DID YOU…
Nate Nytro: Wait, I thought that Grayson Pierce and Gemini Battle were the same person? I think they are? How is this possible?
Nikki Venus: If you were following the terrible story that was being told in their lives it turned out that Gemini had taken over someone else’s body the last time he became human and Grayson was left alive. Rumor had it that he and his wife Kat had taken Taylor Wright’s daughter and adopted her as their own. And THAT’S how Taylor Wright fits into the story.
Nate Nytro: This seems confusing.
Gemini and Teo walk down towards Howard Stern who sprays mist into Grayson’s eyes.
Howard Stern: I’ll be back! YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LAST OF ME!!!
He slowly turns around and exits the arena and the Three men allow him to do so. Teo’s music plays as he, Gemini and Grayson Pierce raise each other’s hands and the scene fades.
UCI VS WCF
NIGHTMARE CHAMBER MATCH
The Nighmare Chamber sits over the ring, caged inside the pods are Ethan King, Stephen Sing, Bonnie Blue and L Verez. Standing within the ring are FPV and Alex Richards. The first battle of UCI and WCF is set to begin!
FPV rushes Alex, who dodges and hits a clubbing blow to the back. Frank staggers toward the buckle, and eats a charging clothesline. Alex takes Frank out of the corner and executes a headlock takeover?!
Nikki Venus: Odd seeing a wresting move within a structure like this, especially from a mammoth like Richards.
Laughing, Alex holds Frank down and doesn’t allow the smaller man to escape. Frank finally elbows his way out and hits the ropes, coming back with a big shoulder tackle that sends Richards reeling, but only for a split second, as he turns and takes Frank’s head off with a punch! FPV bounces off the mat and quickly realizes this isn’t a fight to stand to, he exits the ring via rolling under the bottom rope and searches the plunder within the Chamber. Alex steps out and is hit right in the dome with a kendo stick!
Nate Nytro: The first instance of the nature of this Chamber!
Richards doesn't care though, he powers through and puts his hands under FPV's arms and throws him backward into the steel chain of the Chamber! FPV must have flown ten feet! Richards laughs as he catches the smaller man on the way down and winds up, throwing Frank over the top rope back into the ring!
Nikki Venus: This guy is scary strong!
Nate Nytro: I hear he enjoys Zim-Quilas too!
Alex goes to enter the ring again but the lights go out, the Chambers begin flashing - who will it be?
Hardcore Champ steps out of his confines wielding a steel chair he slams over the head of Alex Richards with all his might!
Nikki Venus: Oh damn!
Richards finally relents, feeling the effects of the chairshot. King throws the chair down and rushes, driving his shoulder into Alex's chest and ramming him back into the chains before unloading lefts and rights. Alex does his best to cover up but it isn't enough, FPV joins the fray now with elbows and knees. Surprisingly, FPV steps back and King grabs an arm, irish whipping FPV into a big back elbow! Richards doesn't go down, but he's groggy. Frank leaps off the middle rope toward the steel and is caught - Alex tosses FPV into Ethan King with a sick velocity!
Nate Nytro: Damn, Frank has been tossed around this structure all match long.
Frank rolls off and Ethan goes to stand, but he's throttled by Richards. Richards grabs Frank too and picks them both up in a chokeslam but instead slams their heads together in mid-air! A sick thud, but King is able to recover quick enough to hit a dropkick to the knee, sweep up the kendo stick and slam it into Alex's knee! Alex crumbles, down to just the one knee, FPV with a superkick!
Nate Nytro: Headshot! How is he even up?!
ETHAN KING WITH A SUPERKICK!
FPV WITH A SUPERKICK!
THE CROWD IS FUCKING INTO IT!
ALEX RICHARDS DOESN'T GIVE A SHIT, DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!
Nikki Venus: Wow, truly a different Alex Richards showing up today.
Both of Team WCF's members are on the ground, Alex scoops Ethan King off the steel and tosses him into the ring. Then he kicks FPV in under the bottom rope. Alex steps in and is caught by Ethan King, a sharp elbow strike to the neck. Frank clutches Alex's ankle while Ethan begins unloading overhand shots to his back. Then, the lights go out! Spotlights hit the chambers, landing on Bonnie Blue!
Nikki Venus: Here comes Bonnie!
She rushes out and tackles Ethan King off of Alex Richards, kicking and clawing at the Hardcore Champion. Alex lifts FPV up and is hit with a kick to the knee once again. Bonnie and Ethan lock up, Bonnie goes behind and hits a big back suplex! She turns her attention to Frank, throwing him over her head in a suplex as well! Ethan us up, swings for the fences and misses a ducking Bonnie Blue, into a catch by Richards and sitout side slam! FRANK VENABLE FIRES OFF A SUPERKICK TO ALEX RICHARDS THAT STILL DOESN'T TAKE THE BIG MAN DOWN! Bonnie counters with an elbow strike, off the ropes and another taking Frank off his feet!
Nate Nytro: Fast and furious action here!
Alex shakes the cobwebs out and lunges at a kneeling Ethan King, but Ethan moves and Alex tangles himself in the ropes! Ethan back elbows Bonnie as she stalks him, Ethan off his feet and big dropkick taking Bonnie down. He reaches out and grabs the steel chair, slamming the furniture against the back of Bonnie! She cries out in agony, he turns and nails Alex Richards in the knee again as it's in the ropes! Ethan winds up back toward Bonnie but she rolls out of the way, goes to bounce off the ropes BUT IS MET WITH A SUPERKICK FROM FRANK! Bonnie crumbles to the mat, Frank pops one off on Alex too! King gets in on the action! Knee strike to Richards, one to Bonnie, another to Richards but he isn’t falling down! Alex punches King square in the chest! King stumbles back and he and Frank both run at Alex but he back body drops them both over the rope to the steel on the outside! They stand but Bonnie has run at Alex, he throws her over the ropes and planchaaaa onto FPV and King!
Nate Nytro: This is crazy, no regard for anything!
STEVEN SINGH IS IN!
Singh comes in a house of fire, punch to Bonnie takes her down, one to Richards doesn’t do anything, Bonnie back up and eats a jab, jab, ducks a big one and she pushes Singh into Alex but Richards hits a back elbow, he spins Singh around to Bonnie who hits a boot to the gut, she spins him to Alex again but Singh with a dropkick takes Richards off his balance, FPV and King hook Richards up from the outside and hold him against the ropes! Bonnie in, Singh uses her momentum to fling her into a spear on Richards! She bounces off and Singh spins, hitting a big clothesline! Richards stumbles in, Singh with a punch to the nose, then throat, FPV and King come in and unload on Alex too. Strikes galore, everything under the sun, but Richards just won’t fall down. He’s come to fight, and fight he is. Finally Frank pops off a kick to the thigh, bringing Richards down to a knee once again.
Nikki Venus: HERE WE GO!

Nate Nytro: This match is about to truly begin, falls are now enforced!
L Verez’s chamber opens and L runs in, grabs Frank who is the only one stirring at the moment and hits a big rana. Singh is getting up, L drops him with a one foot dropkick. King isn’t up yet but L doesn’t care, standing senton. Alex is back up, he walks over and grabs Singh, Steven with a right jab to the eye, L notices and comes over but gets taken down with a vicious knee to the temple from FPV out of nowhere.

We fade out with Team UCI, hands raised over a fallen FPV as the Nightmare Chamber is raised, it has claimed another victim.
OH SHIT TAYLOR SWIFT SHOW. I'd write it out but you can guess what happens. She sings, she's hot. This leads toooooo...
WCF WORLD TITLE MATCH
JOHN RABID (c) VS STEVE ORBIT
JOHN RABID (c) VS STEVE ORBIT
Taylor Swift competes her show set with a stunning rendition of “Ready For it?”, her flowing blonde locks slicked back while dressed in a silver and gold bikini. Taylor’s slender, athletic form is clad with spiked metallic shoulder pads and a winged viking helmet that shimmers with regal resplendence. Swift is singing her heart out while gyrating in full on Valkyrie mode. The heart and soul of the act is stationed currently on a raised platform that is a stage representation of Dethfort castle, positioned within a cordoned off section of the Bank of America’s bleachers. Undead dancers swarm the singer’s location as T-Swift banishes Jobber Zombies with a swing of her mighty custom made Viking “Hammer-Microphone” aka “The Hammer-phone”
♫ Corey was a killer, first time that I saw him
Wonder how many girls he loved, and then left haunted
But if he's Creeping Death, then I can be a phantom
Holdin' him for ransom! Yeah! Yeah!♬
As the track reaches it’s climax, Taylor’s strapped into a silver and gold winged harness as she zip lines down into the wrestling ring! Sixty five thousand screaming fans become unglued as a pyrotechnic spectacle explodes from all four turnbuckles upon landing.
Taylor Swift: Thank you, thank you so much! Are y’all enjoying your Friday the thirteenth?
Crowd: Taylor! Taylor! Taylor! Taylor!
Stage hands unclip Taylor from the flight harness as she assumes her announcer duties.
Taylor Swift: The following contest, is for the WCF World Heavyweight Championship!
Crowd: Rahhhbid Woop! Woop! Rahhhbid Woop! Woop! Rahhhbid Woop! Woop!
Taylor Swift: First, the challenger; accompanied to the ring by the National Pimp Association of America…
"I CAN'T STOP-OP-OP-OP-OP-OP..."
The lights dim as "Who Gon Stop Me" by Kanye West & Jay-Z plays over the PA. A pink strobe light flashes rapidly throughout the arena-- pink lasers swirl around the entranceway and eventually converge into a big pink spotlight, "The Mack" Steve Orbit emerges from the back, driving a purple and pink cadillac low rider to the ring! The crowd cheers as the vehicle is flanked by an army of strutting Pimps (aka actors) carrying ivory canes and dressed in full length fur coats. The Pimps doth their feather adorned purple trilby’s as the cadillac reaches ringside. Orbit engages the caddy’s custom hydraulics as the low rider bounces eight feet into the air!
Nate Nytro: Orbit will always be a showman! He’s a true one of a kind! A two time WCF Champion. A Vapor king alongside Zombie McMorris and Natural ICE Beckman. A former Pantheon alumni. And now, he stands on the cusp of an epic resurgence if he can pull of the shock of the year!
Taylor Swift: And introducing the Champion. He is The Serpent. The Ripper. The WCF Television Champion. And the WCF World Heavyweight Champion! JAHONNNNN RAHHHHHBIDDD!
Nikki Venus: Knowing John Rabid, he’ll be focused and ready for this challenge. The Ripper versus The Mack. The one’s going to be emotional!
“Death Breath - Toxic Avenger Remix” by Bring Me The Horizon hits as a huge pyrotechnic barrage explodes around the jumbotron. As the smoke clears, we see John Rabid standing tall; arms outstretched as he spins on the spot. Rabid struts down the ramp, snarling and gnashing his teeth at a stray cameraman as John's name appears on a XIII graphic. Rabid has the TV title over his left shoulder with the WCF world over his right. He flicks a toothpick at the camera as he marches down the ramp, adjusting his aviator shades while inspecting the gauntlet of pimps lined up on either side of the ramp. The Ripper is not impressed as he spies Orbit now inside the ring. The Ripper stops, then climbs onto the hood of the caddy and holds up his titles to a MASSIVE ROAR from the crowd!
Nate Nytro: Rabid letting Orbit know he’s not intimidated by his entourage. Look out ! He’s leaping into the ring!
Rabid lands perfectly and rolls to his feet. The Ripper hands over his jacket and both titles to Moser before climbing a turnbuckle to receive another huge ovation from the sixty five thousand fans in attendance. Rabid’s wearing his alt #beachkrew pink tasseled tights as he turns and smirks at Orbit’s presence, encircling his opponent as the bell rings!
Nikki Venus: And here we go!
Rabid charges forward as Orbit winds up a Pimp Slap, as Orbit swings, Rabid ducks and slides across the ring, Rabid kips up to his feet and hits a springboard V-Trigger, catching Orbit flush across the face!
Orbit is reeling as Rabid irish whips Orbit into the ropes and catches The Mack with a second V-Trigger on the rebound! Snap Dragon Suplex by Rabid, followed by a neck snap!
Nikki Venus: Rabid in charge!
Nate Nytro: Orbit needs to regroup or he’ll be overwhelmed!
Mounted punches by Rabid as The Ripper unloads a volley of punches, the arena is on it’s feet. Orbit eye pokes and follows that up with head butt as he scrambles away. Orbit is up, but he has his back to Rabid as The Ripper flies forward and administers a Yakuza Kick across the side of the scalp that sends Orbit flying headfirst into a turnbuckle!
Nikki Venus: Dear God, I’ve never seen anyone dominate Orbit like this!
Rabid charges forward as Orbit dives out of the way. Rabid manages to put on the breaks, but Orbit is already flying forward with a dropkick, the Mack follows that up with a roll up that Rabid powers out of as John administers a basement dropkick. Standing star press by Rabid, who climbs the turnbuckle, as he does so, Orbit staggers up to his feet, and runs forward. Orbit lifts Rabid up off the turnbuckle and into an electric chair position. Rabid counters and hits an inverted frankensteiner, smashing Orbit’s skull into the mat!
Nate Nytro: If Rabid keeps answering Orbits attack at this pace, The Mack will be massacred!
Nikki Venus: Orbit needs a difference maker, he needs to regroup!
Rabid hooks the leg!
Foot on the ropes! Moser breaks the pin as the crowd BOOS.
Nate Nytro: This is a WCF sanctioned match ladies and gentlemen. It may be XIII, but this is WCF’s title.
Nikki Venus: And that may be Steve’s only saving grace right now!
Both men up on their feet. Collar and elbow by Orbit, trying to dictate the pace. The Mack has a lock applied on Rabid’s left arm as Rabid reverses, spins through and alleviates the pressure. Now Rabid is in control of The Mack’s arm. Elbow smash to the joint as Rabid arm drags but maintains the lock on Orbit, arm drags again as Orbit looks to lower his center of gravity to counter. Orbit spins through and springboards off the ropes, slipping out of the hold as he hits a ORBITAL DDT out of nowhere!
Nate Nytro: Amazing counter by Orbit!
Kick out at ONE! Shades of Creeping Death at XIII 2015 as Orbit shakes his head in disbelief. Rabid is up, clicks his neck back into position as he waves The Mack on!
Crowd: RAHHHHBIDD, WOOP! WOOP! RAHHHHBIDD, WOOP! WOOP!
Orbit with a shoulder charge as he thunders Rabid into a turnbuckle. Orbit goes for another Pimp Slap as Rabid locks in the approaching arm and applies a cross armbreaker!
Orbit in a lot of pain now as he scrambles wisely for the ropes. Moser starts to count as Rabid breaks the hold on four.
Nikki Venus: Orbit on the outside now looking to regroup!
Orbit takes a powder as the crowd is firmly behind Rabid. One of Steve’s Ho’s hands him a bottle of water as an impatient Rabid paces inside the ring. Count up to five now but the wryly veteran isn’t in a hurry as Orbit gathers his thoughts, ignoring the screams from the crowd to get back inside the ring.
Nate Nytro: Rabid running the ropes, he’s had enough!
Nikki Venus: Space Tiger Handspring Somersault drop by Rabid!
Rabid cannons into Orbit on the outside. Crowd is on their feet as Rabid is up, rolls Orbit into the ring to break the count, then drags him back outside and slams his head into the barrier. Goes for it again but Orbit slams on the breaks and grabs a cane from a Pimp at ringside.
Nate Nytro: Swing that, Orbit and it’s a DQ!
Orbit thinks about it, but sanity prevails as he drops the cane and goes for a kick to the gut instead. Orbit slams Rabid’s head into the barrier and runs the barrier for a Orbital DDT, countered by Rabid with a Superkick that connects with Orbit mid flight, sending him crashing backwards and onto the hood of the Pimp caddy!
Nate Nytro: GOOD GAWD!
Rabid pulls back the tarpaulin and searches under the ring. The Ripper spies a twenty foot high ladder and drags it out onto the floor, he rolls inside the ring and then out to break the count at eight. Rabid sets the ladder up inside the ring and climbs it.
Nate Nytro: What’s he thinking? Phoenix Splash?
Nikki Venus: No...I know that gesture. Talk about adding insult to injury….
Nate Nytro: He can’t be serious….
FLYSWATTER OFF THE LADDER ONTO THE CADDY AND ORBIT!
KER-KRUNCH! The hood buckles as the windshield shatters on impact!!!
Crowd: Holyeeee Shit! Holyeeee Shit! Holyeeee Shit! Holyeeee Shit!
Rabid clutches his ribs as he rolls off Orbit’s bloody body and roars!
John Rabid: Hail to the king, baybay!
Crowd: Rahhhhbiddd, Woop! Woop! Rahhhhbiddd, Woop! Woop!
Rabid rolls back inside the ring as EMT’s attend to Steve, Rabid working the crowd as he tells them to get to their feet. The barriers around the ring reverberate with hands slamming against them; a morse code that sounds like the theme from The Terminator!
Nikki Venus: Sounds like Rabid is calling it! This could be the end!
Orbit shows no fear as he climbs into the ring apron, unawares that…
Nikki Venus: Who’s that climbing over the barrier?
Nate Nytro: It’s ZOMBIE MCMORRIS! LEADER OF TEAM UCI!
ZMAC swings a chair as Rabid turns and ducks the blow; ZMAC hits the ropes with the chair as his legs are pulled out from under him by the VERY BRITISH SECURITY! We notice they’ve smashed their way through a nearby barrier and entered the fray! The current Internet champions double team a former alumni as inside the ring Orbit and Rabid are duking it out!
Orbit with the upper hand, hits a dragon suplex, follows that up with a shining wizard!
Nikki Venus: Orbit is trying to match, Rabid!
Orbit is feeling it as he shakes on the spot, “pimping” up with Oakland energy as he winds up his hand, ready to deliver the slap!
Nikki Venus; Slap armed…
Nate Nytro: ...and deployed!
Orbit lets loose with the Pimp Slap!
Reign Maker elbow by Rabid!
Nate Nytro: Rabid retains! Rabid retains!
Nikki Venus: And here comes UCI!
ZMAC is now joined by Bishop and Buddy Roman as the Evil Incarnate escapes the clutches of VBS and enters the ring. Rabid is being double teamed now as he’s swarmed with lefts and rights as--
The lights in the arena dim as the opening to “21st Century Schizoid Man” by King Crimson starts playing over the P.A. Wade Moor slips out from behind the curtain – Hacksaw Jim Thuggin and Jared Holmes by his side- all three men sprint down to ringside and even the odds, entering the ring!
Brosideon Punch on ZMAC!
Dolphin Driver on Bishop!
“The Shape” Vincent “Buddy” Roman and Hacksaw Jim Thuggin stare down, Jim’s insane smile is met with a retreating Roman who realizes he has no choice. Suddenly, Roman surges forward, using his boxing skills to unleash a blistering exchange of lefts and rights as Thuggin stands his ground! The crowd pops HUGE as the two preeminent managers of the last ten years of WCF television finally clash! Shape’s punches are like slabs of impenetrable solid rock as Jim staggers backwards, ducking to allow Rabid to hit….
Nikki Venus: SUPERKICK ON BUDDY ROMAN!
Nate Nytro: GOOD GAWD!
Roman flies backwards as ZMAC is tied up in the ropes! Rabid is handed both his Television and World titles by a gleeful Moser as The Ripper climbs a turnbuckle to celebrate.
Nikki Venus: Rabid has prevailed though his first world title defence!
Nate Nytro: But Sidney J. Warwick is waiting on the horizon! One is going to be an absolute war!
Rabid climbs down from the turnbuckle and hugs Wade. The Ripper’s eyes eventually locking onto, and narrowing, as they spy Jared and Thuggin. “The King in Yellow” and “The Galactic Overlord” are stepping away from the scene as they seek to exit the ring. Wade stops Thuggin and Jared from leaving. Brosideon seems to want to iron things out, pleading for everyone to hug through their differences.
Nikki Venus: Rabid doesn’t seem to be in the forgiving mood. Whatever history has flowed between him and Jared, their gulf may be too late to cross. This might be the last time we see #beachkrew together.
Nate Nytro: All era’s end. Even one as dominant as #beachkrew.
Jared and Thuggin are exiting through the ropes as…
John Rabid: Wait. Alright then...alright. Just for tonight.
Thuggin smiles like a cheshire cat; Jared seems conflicted however. Holmes is not sure if this is what he wants, until an oasis of reason finds port and Jared extends his hand in friendship, meeting with Rabid’s.
Nate Nytro: For one night only, #beachkrew are back!
Wade beams as Rabid and Jared cautiously shake hands. Thuggin’ points at Rabid and shouts “WORLD CHAMPION!” Then at Jared “WORLD CHAMPION!” and finally Wade “WORLD CHAMPION!” Thuggin is handed a microphone as he addresses the crowd.
Jim Thuggin: Look upon #beachkrew! The greatest single faction the world has EVER SEEN. Beyond, The Vapor Kings! Beyond, Pantheon! Beyond, Everest! The Galactic Prophecy is UPON US!
The crowd pops huge as “Aquaberry Dolphin” by Riff Raff plays as #beachkrew take a bow....for perhaps the very last time.
Meanwhile on the outside, Orbit is up on his feet. Resolute that this will not be the last time he crosses paths with the Ripper.
COREY BLACK VS JOEY FLASH
XIII comes back from a promo for Helloween with a shot of tables, ladders and chairs set up around the ring, signaling that it's finally time for the main event.
Taylor Swift: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL and it is a TABLES, LADDERS AND CHAIRS MATCH!
The arena lights dim as the crowd buzz begins to build to fever pitch. The music begins and lingers for a moment before Joey Flash in all his glory emerges from behind the curtain staring at the crowd. He floats regally down the aisle bathing in the atmosphere and stopping to shake the hand of anyone who desires it.
Taylor Swift: Introducing first, from The Bronx, New York, weighing in at 220 pounds...JOEY FLASH!
He circles the ring not once, but twice. Delaying his entrance and the match even further riling the crowd before sliding into the ring and sitting down in one of the ring corners staring at the stage with both apathy and disgust.
Taylor Swift: And introducing his opponent...
"Spit Out the Bone" by Metallica hits the PA as the lights drop and purple lights illuminate the arena. A few moments later Corey Black emerges from the backstage area wearing a worn looking black leather vest with "ALL HAIL" - a skull with a crown - and "THE KING" on the back of it. 65,000 screaming, rabid WCF fans get to their feet in appreciation of the man, nay they legend, that calls Minnesota home, Corey Black. There are a few scattered boos as the cameras sweep over the crowd, getting the full reaction for the viewers at home, but they're so overly drowned out that you'd never hear them unless you were standing right by the person.
Taylor Swift: From Minneapolis, Minnesota, weighing in at 218 pounds, he is the King Of All Wrestlers...COREY BLACK!
Corey makes his way to the ring, little interaction with anyone, just focus on the squared circle. Black slides into the ring and lifts his right elbow to the sky as most of the crowd loses their mind. Corey drops his vest to the floor and simply waits in the corner, bouncing back and forth, staring down Flash as he looks up into the ring with a smug expression on his face. Black now standing in the center of the ring, motioning for Flash to get into the ring and get this match going now. The music dies down and Flash is still at ringside, defiantly staring down Black as he's content doing things on his time.
Nikki Venus: Not sure if it's wise on the part of Joey Flash to be trying to play mind games with Corey Black. It's only going to end with one pissed off Avenger.
Flash starts for the ring apron and reaches for the ropes, looking to pull himself up, only to step back and begin stretching as he mouths 'Just a second' to Black before smirking. The referee tries to stop Black from leaving the ring but he'd have better luck finding a lasting relationship for Taylor Swift because Black shoves him to the side. Black quickly through the ropes and out to the floor where Flash meets him with a right hand. Black rocked by the ludicrous power of Flash's punching prowess but manages to come back with a stiff elbow shot to the face.
Nate Nytro: There aren't many men on Earth that can take a direct punch by Joey Flash and respond that fast.
Flash goes for another haymaker but Black cuts him off with another elbow shot and Joey is looking to get away. But Black gets him by the arm and pulls him back, directing him in the direction of the barricade. Flash able to stop himself before running into it before trying to hop over and into the crowd. The referee trying to get the action brought into the ring so the match can start but his hands are tied as Black tells him to stay back while hopping into the crowd himself.
Nikki Venus: Where the hell is Flash going? He spent all this time downplaying the legacy of Corey Black, demeaning everything he's ever done while singing his own praises as some sort of wrestling god, and after a few good elbow shots he's running?
Flash shoving angry fans out of his way as he's looking for an escape, Black in hot pursuit right behind him. Corey finally catches up to him and tries to drag him back to the ring, but Flash spins around and catches him with a massive right hand that drops Black to the ground.
Nate Nytro: Sweet fuck, I've seen Flash hit some huge punches but Black dropped like he got hit by a train.
The cameraman zooms in on Flash's hand and we see he slipped on a pair of brass knuckles at some point.
Nikki Venus: Oh son of a bitch, that's why he started running. He needed time to fish out those brass knuckles, that conniving bastard.
Black still down but he's trying to shake off the hit as Flash drops down to a knee beside him.
Joey Flash: YOU WANTED THIS!
Flash pulling up Black's head by the hair and he delivers a second, stiff, brutal shot with the brass knuckles and Black's head drops back to the floor. The crowd around the two men begins loudly booing as Flash gets to his feet and throws the brass knuckles to the side. Flash looks toward the ring and then down at Black before pulling him up to his feet and dragging him back to the barricade. Fans are hurling insults and spewing hatred at Flash as he's damn near carrying the unconscious body of Black amongst them.
Nate Nytro: I can't believe we're seeing this. We knew that Corey would be feeling it after his match in Tijuana against Gravedigger last night, we expected to see him hindered a bit, but this is just unbelievable.
Nikki Venus: Oh drop the dramatics, yeah he was dinged up from last night, but he was fine for this match. You're seeing Joey Flash's plan in the works right now and that's it, nothing else. He knew he needed an edge over Corey tonight and he had it ready.
Flash gets Black up against the barricade but rather than toss him over, Flash looks around at the booing fans and then delivers an open handed slap right across the face of their beloved hometown star. Flash now with his back turned to Black as he's addressing the fans.
Joey Flash: THIS IS YOUR HERO? HEROES DON'T EX-
Whatever Flash was trying to say is lost as that disrespectful slap brought Corey back to life and now he's got an arm around the throat of Flash, trying to choke the life out of him. Flash writhing as he's trying to get lose, finally shoving his weight back into Black and putting him up against the barricade. Flash trying to break free by throwing elbow shots but the master of elbows laughs at his feeble attempt. Flash still trying to get free when Black suddenly leaps up onto the barricade and manages to flip over Flash and drive him face first into the ground in one fluid motion.
Nate Nytro: BLACKENED CONNECTOR!
Nikki Venus: Logan ain't got shit on Corey Black!
Black pulling Flash up by his hair and shoving him over the barricade as the referee is still yelling for them to get into the ring.
Corey Black: RING THE DAMN BELL ALREADY!
Referee: But you aren't in the r-
COREY BLACK: RING THE GOD DAMN BELL BEFORE I BASH YOUR SKULL IN!
DING! DING! DING!
Flash trying to crawl away as Black grabs a nearby chair and slams it shut. Black now raising the chair up into the air and then he brings it down across the back of Joey. He's still trying to crawl away and Black hits him across the back a second time. Black now throwing the chair down on the ground before he pulls Flash up. Black lifting Joey up onto his shoulders and the crowd is on their feet in anticipation.
Nikki Venus: BURNING HAMMER ONTO THE CHAIR?!
Black's calling for it but Flash isn't having any of it as he begins to fight back before Black can drop him. Joey manages to writhe free and land behind Black before quickly rolling into the ring. Black slides in as well but Joey is already on his feet and shoving the referee in Corey's direction, demanding he keep him back. The referee giving Joey shit for touching him before he explains there are no DQ's in a TLC Match, so he needs to protect his own ass. Flash shoves the referee again at Corey and Black responds by elbowing the referee in the back of the head.
Corey Black: NOW WHO ARE YOU GOING TO CRY TO?
Flash considers his options and then tries to run, but Corey catches him near the ropes before he can escape. Flash grabbing the top rope as Black is trying to turn him around. Out of nowhere it's Flash kicking back square into the groin of Black.
Nikki Venus: Oh god...that even hurt me.
Black still on his feet but he's doubled over and holding himself as Flash turns out, a confident smile on his face as another plan of his has worked.
Joey Flash: COME ON! LET'S SEE THOSE TEARS!
A referee finally shows up and slides into the ring. Black tries to get upright but he's grimacing from the pain in his groin. Flash lets out a laugh and then cuts short Black's comeback with a lightning fast right hand that drops Black.
Nate Nytro: SUDDEN FLASH!
Flash gestures to the crowd and gets a thunderous boo before he lays on top for the pin attempt, not even bothering to hook the leg.
Nikki Venus: The cocky bastard didn't even get a two count!
Flash looking toward the new referee for answers as he confirms it was only a one count. Joey not at all pleased but he's up to his feet, readying Black for another Sudden Flash as he's trying to sit up. Flash all ready to go when something catches the corner of his eye. Flash now turning and he's looking outside the ring at a table that's set up. Flash looks back at Black, then the table and he's got a new plan. Black nearly up when Flash catches him with a knee strike to the side of the head. Joey quickly pulls him in and sets up by the ropes for a belly to belly suplex. Black trying to fight out of it with elbow shots but Flash is able to hit the suplex.
Nate Nytro: HE'S GOT THE ROPES!
By some kind of miracle Black was able to grab the ropes with his hands as Flash suplexes him over them, saving him from going through the table but his back slams into the apron. Flash celebrating like he thinks Black is in a heap under pieces of table as Black is trying to pull himself back up on the apron. Joey turns around and sees Black is still up and loses it, cursing up a storm as he marches over to the ropes. Flash now pulling Black up so they're face to face.
Joey Flash: WHY WON'T YOU JUST GO DOWN!
Flash with a headbutt. Black shakes it off and stays on the apron. Another headbutt! A third! Black looks like he's dazed as Flash's frustration has gone past any level we've ever seen from him. Flash running and hitting the ropes before coming back, he's trying to spear Black off the apron and through the table. Black sees him coming and is able to muster the energy to flip over the ropes and over Flash before he gets hit. Flash through the ropes and he ends up through the table at ringside.
Crowd: HOLY SHIT!
Nikki Venus: How in the hell did Corey Black find it in him to flip over Flash like that?
Nate Nytro: I don't know but shit, did you see Flash just belly flop through that table?!
Black drops to a knee in the ring as he's trying to catch his breath while the referee is looking outside the ring to see if Flash is okay. He's conscious and moving so the referee lets things keep going while he waits for somebody to get up.
Nikki Venus: Black finally able to stop the onslaught from Flash but he's downright exhausted and can't capitalize. Come on Corey, you gotta push through it!
Flash shoving pieces of debris off of him as he's trying to crawl from the broken table. Black back up on his feet and he sees Flash moving. Black now looking at the top turnbuckle and then back at Flash.
Nate Nytro: Oh god, don't do anything stupid Corey.
The crowd on their feet as Black climbs the ropes and positions himself on the top turnbuckle. Flash still crawling from under the table as the fans are holding their breath. Black leaps off!
Nikki Venus: BLACKENED FLYSWATTER!
Black with a beautiful, barrel roll headbutt that strikes into the kidneys of Flash on the floor.
Crowd: WE'RE NOT WORTHY! WE'RE NOT WORTHY!
Black rolls off clutching his forehead as Flash is holding his back. There are many replays shows on the jumbotron for those in the nosebleeds who missed out. Black finally crawling over to Flash and he rolls him over before putting an arm over the chest.
Nate Nytro: TWO AND A HALF! IF HE HAD GOTTEN THERE FASTER IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THREE!
Black sits up slowly, looking at the referee annoyed but he knows it was a two count. Now he's looking around to figure out what next when he spots a ladder. Black pushing himself up to his feet and he heads for the ladder as Flash is trying to get up. Black is now climbing the ladder, looking to end this match. Flash holding onto his back as he limps over to where Black is climbing.
Nikki Venus: How in the hell is Flash standing so soon?!
Nate Nytro: Pure hatred, Nikki. It can fuel a man like you'll never understand.
Black oblivious to Flash being up until he turns around halfway up, looking ready to leap off. Flash with a double middle finger salute and and he rams into the ladder with both hands, sending it falling backward. Black leaps off to avoid crashing with it but lands awkwardly on his ankle. Flash wastes no time and wraps him up before hitting a vicious german suplex onto the ladder.
Nikki Venus: LIGHTNING BOLT!
Flash hooks the leg.
Nate Nytro: HOLY SHIT! HE GOT THE SHOULDER UP!
Flash sits up, bewildered, while Black is writhing in pain on the ladder. Flash up to his feet and he's got the referee by the shirt, screaming in his face. Black actually trying to sit up as Flash is pointing at Black, but the referee can't understand what Flash is complaining about. Black on his feet and he's gesturing for Flash to bring it even though he looks ready to fall over dead. Flash loses it and throws Sudden Flash. But Black ducks it and hits Flash with an elbow. Black now trying for the Burning Hammer but Flash elbows his way out of it. Flash spins Black around and it's another Sudden Flash that leaves Black up against the ring post, barely hanging on as he's trying to stay up. Flash looking down and he scoops up a chair. The fans screaming for Black to move but he's too out of it and Flash slams the chair into the side of his head, sandwiching it between the post and the chair.
Nikki Venus: I...I have no words.
Black crumples to the ground as Flash drops down on top of him for the pin.
Nate Nytro: And Joey Flash gets the win. But my god get a medic to ringside.
"Mile Zero" by Periphery hits as Flash pulls himself up with the ring apron, a sneer across his face as he raises an arm in victory. The crowd is on their feet but it's with worry for Black after that chair shot. Flash looks around and sees nobody appreciating his win so he flips off the crowd and limps toward the ramp. Medics run down from the back and past Flash on their way to check on Black.
Nikki Venus: Wait...LOOK! LOOK!
The crowd comes back to life as Corey Black is not only moving, but he's trying to stand up. Blood pouring from his head, leaving his face redder than a tomato, Black is grabbing for the apron or the ropes, really anything to keep him up, as he's yelling for the medics to stay away.
Nate Nytro: Oh come on Corey, there's a difference between pride and being stupid.
Flash on the ramp watching Black trying to show he's still alive and it looks like he's ready to go back and finish the job, but finally he just waves him off and walks up the ramp as Black is trying to tell him to come back. Flash disappears behind the curtain and Black finally lets medics grab him and hold him up. The Minnesota crowd is giving him a standing ovation while cheering.
Crowd: WE'RE NOT WORTHY! WE'RE NOT WORTHY!
XIII fades out to black with a final shot of Corey Black staring up at his own image on the jumbotron, a smile on his face as he's once again put on a show like no other.
