September 27, 2010. War 9 (already in progress)
Shannan Lerch: No! Slickie avoids it! Logan turns around and SLICKIE CONNECTS WITH THE OMERTA!
Zach Davis: PIN!
Shannan Lerch: ONE!
Zach Davis: TWO!
Shannan Lerch: SUSPENSE!
Zach Davis: Kickout! Logan kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: But now Slickie is back in the driver's seat. He rests a bit, catching his breath and letting Logan climb to his feet.
Zach Davis: Once Logan is up Slickie hits him with a stiff kick to the gut.. bam, Snap Suplex. Slickie gets up and starts stomping on the Face of Treachery.
Shannan Lerch: Soon, however, Slickie begins climbing to the top. What is he going for?
Zach Davis: I don't know, but Logan is up. He runs at Slickie to stop him.. and Slickie kicks him away!
Shannan Lerch: Logan turns back around.. ACE OF SPADES!
Zach Davis: Slickie pins Logan once more!
Shannan Lerch: ONE.
Zach Davis: TWO.
Shannan Lerch: Logan's foot is on the ropes!
Zach Davis: Slickie pulls Logan to the middle of the ring and pins him again.
Shannan Lerch: ONE.
Zach Davis: TWO!
Shannan Lerch: Kickout. So close.
Zach Davis: Slickie knows he has one more move in his arsenal. He waits for Logan to stand...
Shannan Lerch: He wraps him up for the T-Bone..
Zach Davis: No, Logan shoves him away! Slickie bounces off, comes back.. LOGAN WRAPS HIM IN A SLEEPER!
Shannan Lerch: CONNECTOR! Logan hits it!
Zach Davis: Could Logan be the World Champion in 2010!? Here's the pin! ONE!
Shannan Lerch: TWO!
Zach Davis: NO! Slickie kicks out!
Shannan Lerch: Logan curses to himself, clearly angry, not knowing what he has to do to beat him. He throws Slickie to the turnbuckle now.
Zach Davis: He lifts Slickie up... it looks like he may be going for some kind of Superplex?...
Shannan Lerch: Oh my God.. no! Look at this..
Zach Davis: Top rope Falcon Arrow! Beautiful move, and Logan follows it up with a pin!
Shannan Lerch: ONE!
Zach Davis: TWO.
Shannan Lerch: NO! Slickie gets his arm up at the last second, once more!
Zach Davis: How do you beat the unbeatable, Zach?
Shannan Lerch: Logan is breathing hard, he's exhausted. So is Slickie. Logan measures Slickie, waiting for him to get up...
Zach Davis: But Slickie's too tired. He's not even moving. Logan walks over to him, pulling him to his feet, and
Shannan Lerch: SLICKIE SNAPS OFF ANOTHER OMERTA OUT OF NOWHERE! He kicked Logan's head off! Here's the pin!
Zach Davis: ONE!
Shannan Lerch: TWO!
Zach Davis: NO! LOGAN GETS THE SHOULDER UP ONCE MORE!
Shannan Lerch: Incredible.
Zach Davis: Slickie picks Logan up... he NEEDS to hit the T-Bone here.
Shannan Lerch: And Logan knows that is what he's going for. Logan drops down, dead weight, rolls away. Gets up, ducks a Clothesline from Slickie..
Zach Davis: Logan gets the Sleeper in..
Shannan Lerch: THERE IT IS, ANOTHER CONNECTOR. Logan has Slickie right in the middle of the ring, he pins him! Hooking the leg!
Zach Davis: ONE!
Shannan Lerch: TWO!
Zach Davis: THREE.
Shannan Lerch: This is it. I.. wow. I don't believe it. Logan...
Zach Davis: Say it with me. Logan has won War, and become the new WCF World Champion.
Shannan Lerch: Logan's music is playing.. wow. I just... I don't believe it.
Zach Davis: The ref hands him the World Title. Slickie is laying in the middle of the ring, exhausted. Logan helps him to his feet.. showing some class, for once!
Scene fades to black
Voice over: War. WCF's annual pay per view event wherein every member on the active roster competes in an elemination battle royal. To the victor, as they say, go the spoils. Last man standing is crowned the world champion. It's a battle for it all, every man giving their all, fighting till their last breath to claim the crown. It truly is...WAR!!!
October 3, 2011. War 10 (already in progress)
Zach Davis: Balfore grabs Reb by the throat. Oh no.
Shannan Lerch: Balfore tears Reb away by the throat, hitting a Spinning Chokeslam, driving Reb right into the middle of the ring! He pins, hooking the leg!
Zach Davis: One.
Shannan Lerch: Two.
Zach Davis: Three
Shannan Lerch: NO! OH MY GOD I DON'T BELIEVE IT! JOHNNY REB GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!
Zach Davis: The crowd is on their feet, they don't believe it either!
Shannan Lerch: Balfore is in shock. He backs up, letting Johnny Reb slowly work his way to his feet..
Zach Davis: Balfore runs at him and executes a beautiful Big Boot!
Shannan Lerch: But Reb ducks it! Balfore's leg goes over the top rope, and he's stuck straddling it. Ouch.
Zach Davis: Reb follows up by Springboarding on the adjacent side, Dropkicking Balfore in the chest. Balfore flips back into the ring.
Shannan Lerch: Reb slides onto the apron, once again Springboards..
Zach Davis: Springboard Southern Discomfort! Reb pins Balfore!
Shannan Lerch: One!
Zach Davis: Two!
Shannan Lerch: THREE. JOHNNY REB WINS!
Zach Davis: Sweet Home Alabama hits, and the crowd is on their feet. The Inveterate Confederate has done it.
Shannan Lerch: The ref hands Reb the belt, and Reb stumbles to his feet, clutching the belt.
Zach Davis: Johnny Reb has become a true icon of the Wrestling Championship Federation.
Scene once again fades to black.
Voice Over: War is not just a battle. It is a proving grounds. One can make a name for themselves that will stand for all time. even those who have the status of icons, legends, even hall of famers, compete to prove they are the best of the best, that there be none greater. War, as with any other battle, will suffer casualties. Men will bleed, bones will be broken, dreams will be dashed. But for one, a dream will be realized, and it will be a crowning achievement that will either place him in the records books for generations to come, or cement an already legendary status for all time.
The scene slowly fades back in, we find standing in front of a large banner style WCF backdrop Synn next alongside to him is NFL first round draft pick, and pro bowl runningback, Greg bell. Synn is wearing his signature long rider trench coat, wrestling jeans, with his trademark mini bandana wrapped around a ponytail going over his shoulder. The WCF world tag team championship belt draped over his other shoulder. Greg Bell is wearing a red shirt with the letters A.A.D.D in black across the chest, Athletes against drunk driving are spelled in a circle around the larger signature writing, the rest of his ensemble is a two piece type tux in light blue, the final piece is his magnificent pro bowl ring adorning his ring finger. The two men are talking slightly out of hearing range. After a few brief words are exchanged, they turn their focus towards the camera. Greg Bell starts off.
Greg bell: Hello ladies and gentlemen. My name is Greg Bell. Standing next to me is Terry "Synn" Roberts. Synn has graciously given his time to help me promote a very worthy cause, one i have been active in myself for a very long time and hold near and dear to my heart. It fills that heart with great joy to stand here next to a world champion caliber athlete such as Synn, whom shares not only the same passion and love for this cause, but has a unique perspective in aiding this great cause. Synn, as you may or may not know, was recently involved in a drunk driving accident. He knows in many ways, first hand, what such a terrible action can result in. We here at A.A.D.D strive to bring awareness against drinking and driving, as well as aid and help not only the victims directly involved in such terrible circumstances, but the friends, and families, also touched by it indirectly. When i got word that Synn, wanting to give back to the community, and help those who have been hurt and inflicted by the very same crime he had, I contacted him right away. That phone call was very eye opening, the very idea he proposed to me was one so magnificent we had to share with all you lovely folks at the soonest earliest time. Synn?
Greg takes half a step to the side, giving Synn the floor to speak his piece.
Synn: War presents an opportunity far beyond what many in WCF fathom. In 2010, Logan won War for his fifth world title. last year, Johnny Reb won War, and his third world title. This year, the title is NOT on the line. But the winner does become the number one contender, and get's a shot at the world title in the main event at WCF's One pay per view. This year, War will not declare the new world champion, but will otherwise brand a new number one contender to the world heavyweight championship. I wanted to take this opportunity to make War even more memorable, and make it even bigger than it already is, if I can. I see War as not only an opportunity to attain personal achievement, but War has the potential to be something far greater in other aspects, as a way to reach out to the WCF universe, and help a great cause in addition.
Synn looks at Bell with a smile. Bell nods, starting where Synn left off.
Greg Bell: Upon entering the league as a first round draft pick with the Buffalo Bills in 1984, I was named New York State’s spokesperson for Athletes Against Drunk Driving and Drug Abuse by state Governor Mario Cuomo. I have taken that position very seriously ever since. This is something Synn and I believe in so very much. It's a worthy cause, so many lives are lost because of drinking and driving accidents. Athletes against drunk driving strives to fight this problem. What we stand here for tonight, are not only the victims, but the families affected alongside those victims of drunk driving.
Greg pauses, Synn picks right up where Greg left off, as if on cue.
Synn: Victims go beyond the ones involved in such tragic incidents. Families suffer as well. Survivors can spend weeks, even months or more in hospitals. Surgeries and rehab can run up into the millions in some cases.
Greg Bell continues from this point.
Greg Bell: And the unfortunate families who lose loved ones, have outstanding medical bills, funeral and burial costs, and other financial burdens and responsibilities that for many, they can't afford. This is where A.A.D.D hopes to make a difference. By offering financial assistance to the victims, and their families, it is our goal to aid them in their greatest time of need.
Synn: That is where I come in. See, War is a perfect opportunity to bring awareness to the ills of drinking and driving, and a chance to raise money to many families who have suffered from it. Greats such as Johnny Reb and Logan have won the last two wars. Well, i'm using War do declare war on drunk driving. It's no longer about winning the match and going on to One to face the champion for the world championship. I'm making a vow, here and how, in honor of all the families who have suffered, and even lost, from this horrible tragedy, I will be donating $5,000 to A.A.D.D. family services with every single elimination I achieve in War. That means, for every person Terry "Synn" Roberts eliminates via pinfall, submission, or over the top rope, A.A.D.D family services will earn $5,000. To help survivors pay bills, or afford rehab.
Greg Bell: And to honor Synn's great gift to this cause, we will match every dollar from every elimination.
Synn looks at Bell, slightly stunned as if not expecting this bit of news. He smiles as Greg nods in affirmation, smiling back at Synn, then back to the camera.
Greg Bell: That is right folks, for every elimination Synn achieves at War, he will donate $5,000 to this worthy cause, and we will then match that charitable donation, making each elimination $10,000 that will help ease the pain and suffering for families in our ongoing war against drunk driving.
Synn shakes hands with Greg bell, Adjusting the world tag title strap over his shoulder, Synn's well known sinister smile crosses his face as Greg Bell looks on.
Synn: People have already written me off. Names like Tek, Steel Toe Joe and Steve Orbit are being called dark horse winners of War. I have beaten champion after champion. I stand here, one half of the world tag team champions, after Doc Henry and I defeated the highly touted team of Tek and Steel Toe Joe, to win these titles. Weren't Prophecy supposed to hold these very tag team titles for a long time, they were such a dominant and solid tag team? Doc Henry and I disposed of these two supposedly amazing highly looked upon competitors, beating them very decisively. I proved to be a major contender when I pushed Jeff Purse, nearly beating him, in our only match for the United States championship. Jeff Purse has been ducking and dodging me like the coward I called him out to be ever since. In our non title tag team lose to Johnny Fly and Corey Black, I think I proved myself capable of competing at the main even level against the best WCF has to offer, going toe to to with both Black and Fly. yet with all these credits to my name, all these achievements thus far, people still underestimate and look me over. that is fine. I'll even admit myself, with bruised ribs, a battered and bruised body, and a broken wrist, my chances of winning War are very slim. But therein lies my very mission. Not only survival, but dominance. War is no longer about Synn just trying to survive. For me, it's a war against those who would readily and selfishly endanger innocent lives, carelessly and thoughtlessly put people in peril, maybe even take lives, because they choose to drive after drinking. I represent all those who have lost and suffered from this terrible tragedy, I am the voice to the voiceless victims and their families.
Synn pauses, looking himself over, his taped ribs hidden by the official WCF Synn t-shirt, mentally picturing the massive bruises still visible over his whole body, then to the cast that envelopes half his right forearm. Chuckling, laughing internally at all those, the Johnny Fly's, the Steve Orbit's, even the Seth Lerch's who have written him off already. At first it was personal, but after having been involved in a drunk driving accident himself, he wanted to use it for a good cause. When the idea to use War to raise money for a good charitable cause came to him, he put out the word to any and all he could, when he got the call from Greg Bell himself, representing Athletes against drunk driving, it was so perfect he felt it was ordained by God himself. The record, if he recalled correctly, was a tie between Gravedigger and Jay Price at 5 eliminations each. What a way to continue proving himself, and keep his star rising in WCF, as well as bring awareness along with raising money for a great cause, then to try and tie, or even break, that record, to accomplish both goals.
Synn: War is a great name for this event. War of every WCF member on the roster against each other for fame and glory. At War, you all can continue doubting me. You all can continue looking down at me. You all can continue counting me out and blowing me off. You all doubted me, said I was a jobber, unworthy of being in WCF. I beat champion after champion, proving you all wrong. You all then continued snubbing me, talking down to me acting like if you all ignored me, I would go away. I teamed with Doc Henry, and we won the world tag titles from the beloved and well liked Tek and Steel Toe Joe, again proving you all wrong. Come War, everyone is ignoring me, talking around me, hoping I will fall, hoping I will fail, and finally go away. Too bad for you, I will go to War, I will represent the victims, and their families, fighting for myself, and for them, I will fight the good fight, I will do what only Synn does best, raise hell. Doing so, I will prove yet once again that Synn is here to stay, elimination after elimination, one by one, you all will know and remember who it was that eliminated you. Win or lose, Synn will make his mark, Synn will make his presence felt, and as I have always done, I will once again prove each and every single one of you hating doubters wrong yet again. Everybody better get ready for war, I have more to fight for than ever before. War, a cause where your willing to die for what you believe in. My cause is righteous, my war is holy, my fight is unwavering. Can you all say the same about yours?
Synn stands for a moment, taking the short pause to let it all sink in to those who will let it. Smiling like a champion, proudly displaying his WCF world tag team championship title over his shoulder, standing side by side with Greg bell, as the scene slowly fades out.
