The crowd is hyped and ready as the intro pyros go off and the intro theme plays across the arena!
Jared Manning: Hiya folks, I am Jared Manning, Esquire, and welcome to TWE WarPath - the future of the wrestling world! As you all should know by now, I am the one and only King of Commentary - and normally I have this little leech at the table with me, goes by the name Shane Cole... but after the events of last show, he is currently out of commission for a while. But hell, that's what he gets for running his mouth at the Frewins. But hey, it's great because without him stealing my spotlight, you all will get ample opportunity to enjoy the splendor, the majesty that is... Jared Manning. But not to fear - for tonight, I will be taking an apprentice under my wing... introducing Vera Cunningham, the newest member of MY announce team!
The tall, Amazon-like woman presents a paradoxical figure - despite her size, she is extremely nervous and reserved... and is constantly adjusting her glasses... but does her best to smile.
Vera Cunningham: Ah, h-hello everyone... (nervously adjusts her glasses.)
Jared Manning: No need to be so nervous, Vera - you're on with the best! Give me some time - I'll show you what commentary greatness looks like!
Vera Cunningham: Wait, whose music is this?
Jared Manning: Some no name hack of a talent probably.
The camera's turn, as a man walks out from the back.
Jared Manning: No freaking way! It's...it's...
Vera Cunningham: It's... Chris Divine!
The man lifts his head, as we see it's Chris Divine standing there smirking. Chris makes his way down the ramp, as he smacks some of the fans hands along the way. Divine climbs onto the apron, and then into the ring. He goes to a corner, climbing to the second turnbuckle, and poses. He hops down, as he reaches out, where he is handed a mic. Divine comes back in, and goes to the center of the ring, while the music fades. Divine stands there, as he slowly raises the mic.
Divine: Finally....................finally...............F INALLY The Divine One has come back...to....T...W...E!
The fans explode, as Divine just smirks.
Divine: You've waited, you've tweeted, you've posted on Divine's facebook, you've even hit up Divine on myspace...can ya believe that? Myspace isn't extinct. Anyways, the people, Divine's people, have wanted Divine to come to TWE, so Divine is here and now.
Divine grins, as he looks around and then goes right back to talking.
Divine: You might be wondering why Divine is here in TWE. You are probably sitting at home, thinking "Wow, it's great to see Chris Divine here, but why in the world is he here" Well let Divine tell you why he is here. As many of you know, there is a little thing going on called the Proving Grounds tournament. This concept, even before it became a tournament, is if a TWE superstar can beat an EWNCW superstar, then that TWE star gets called to the big time. Hell, a while back, Divine was even in a tag team proving grounds match, which of course, Divine won. So, anyways, Divine was contacted by the board, and asked if Divine could come to TWE, to say a few positive things about TWE, and to endorse someone in this tournament. Now, Divine has seen who has already moved on in this tournament, and honestly, Divine is...
The fans burst with a mixed reaction, unsure if they should cheer the TWE champion Van Darius for interrupting Chris Divine, but then the reaction quickly turns to cheers as Van Darius makes his way onto the stage with a microphone in hand and his TWE championship on his right shoulder. Darius walks down the ramp, interacting with fans along the way and then he slides into the ring and stands across from Chris Divine with a smile on his face.
Darius: Let me finish your statement. Divine is impressed with everyone who has moved on and I am as well ... Oh and by the way ...
Darius extends out to Divine to a massive pop from the crowd. Divine firmly grasps Darius's hand and the two men shake.
Darius: So the great Chris Divine has made his way onto TWE territory once again to grace the audience with your presence. The only thing that bothers me is the fact that the Board contacted you to come here. This is nothing against you whatsoever but I am just a bit tweaked about it. I am sure you have been watching what has been going on the past few weeks, and I'm just worried that they called you up so they could do to you what they have done to me.
I do not think they realize that they have two of the best performers in this industry standing toe to toe right now and not even on a bad note. I like you, Chris. You are talented, athletic, and the fans love you. All the same traits that their TWE champion has. So if the Board plans on doing anything, I'd love to have you on my side brother.
The fans pop and they begin to chant Divine and Darius's names.
Darius: Now ... Anyway I will admit it was a bit rude of me to cut you off like that so please, finish what you were saying before.
Darius steps back a bit and lets Divine speak.
Divine: Well folks, let's give a hand to your TWE World Champ, Van Darius!
Divine points to Darius, as the fans cheer.
Divine: See, Divine has kept an eye on what this board has done, and let Divine make this clear. If anyone, or anything, tries to screw with Divine tonight, there will be hell to pay. Now, back to Divines original point. So Divine came here to give a vote of confidence to someone in this proving grounds tournament. So, Divine has spent a week contemplating, and Divine could only come to one person. That man...that man is you Van Darius.
The fans cheer, as Darius smirks.
Divine: See Darius, what some might fail to realize, is that you are the total package. You've been down here in TWE for how long now? close to a year? Sure, you've spent part of that time as the World Champ, but come on! Management seriously needs to make the call and bring this star into the big time. When you have the likes of Mark Dimension, King Strem, and Gillz stinking up the main roster, then you must be stupid to not take advantage of someone like Van Darius. So Darius, Divine wants to wish you the best of luck in this tournament, and hopefully soon, Divine will get to face you on Rage.
Divine grins, as he turns to leave. As he takes two steps, he is stopped by Darius putting a hand on his shoulder.
Darius: Why wait for Rage?
The fans pop when Darius makes the suggestion.
Darius: We've got a ring. We've got fans. We've got gear. Why should we wait for me to get to Rage? Especially since we don't even know if I'll be going to Rage. I could go to Inferno. I say we give the fans a match they really want to see ... Right here on TWE WarPath!
The fans go absolutely nuts now.
Darius: This won't be a fight. This won't be a grudge match. This is a wrestling match that people want to see! These people spend their hard earned cash to watch our show, so why not give them a treat? Fuck the board! Fuck those who keep attacking me. This can be between you and I just to give the fans a treat.
This will be one of the most talked about matches for years to come so let's make history, Divine! TWE World Champion Van Darius vs. Chris "Oh So Fine" Divine! Let's not wait for a payperview either ... Let's do it tonight!
Darius extends his hand to Divine as the crowd chants " Yes! "
Darius: What do you say, Chris?
Divine looks at Van Darius for a second, looking down at his hand, then back up at him. Divine raises his mic, while standing before Darius.
Divine: So let Divine hear this straight. You want to go 1 on 1 with the Divine One? You want to step into the ring with the chumpette beating, pussy cat tracking, best of the best at talk smacking, the one, the only, Chris "So Fine" Divine. Well you know what Darius.....
Divine reaches out, shaking the hand of Van Darius.
Divine: You're on!
The fans explode, as the two men shake. Divine then turns, climbing out of the ring, He heads up the ramp, as he reaches the top and turns back, pointing to Van Darius. The fans cheer once more, as the camera's cut to a commercial break.
Back from commercial...
Jared Manning: Hey people, welcome back to TWE WarPath - where we've gotten -
Vera Cunningham: OH MY GOD, CHRIS DIVINE! CHRIS DIVINE IS HERE!!! EEEEEEEE!!!
Vera seems to be having one of those kinds of fits that young girls have when they see some celebrity that they're smitten with. Like Justin Bieber.
Jared Manning: Yeah... Hey Vera, tone it down lady. It's not -
Vera Cunningham: Oh my gosh, I just got word! The match between Darius and CHRIS DIVINE is now official! EEEEEEE this is going to be a PHENOMENAL main event tonight everybody - DON'T GO ANYWHERE!!!
Jared Manning: Vera... do you have dreams of Chris Divine?
Vera Cunningham: Every single - huh, what? (snaps out of fangirl mode and goes back to meek and docile) I-I'm sorry... I didn't mean to get so c-carried away...
Jared Manning: Sigh - if only women fell over themselves like that to me... anyway folks, we're opening tonight's show with a match from two of TWE's originals - coming next! Hey wait - you just started here! How are YOU getting update prompts in your earpiece... AND I'M NOT?!?
Laura Spencer: Your following contest is set for one fall, introducing first currently standing in the ring, weighing in at 225lbs, Hanz Gruber!
Shane Cole: We will see this powerhouse in action tonight after a short absence from our TWE ringâ€¦
Laura Spencer: And his opponent weighing in at 267lbs and hailing from Miami, Florida, Bill â€œThe Bulletâ€ Johnson!
Vera: I think, that this boy has some talent and *Vera adjusts her glasses* he may be a challenge for Gruberâ€¦
Chris Jericho (Hanz Gruber) Vs. The Rock (Bill Johnson)
Start at 2:40 and End at 06:46
Shane Cole: That was a furious kick-out by Gruber, I really thought that Johnson had him thereâ€¦
Both getting to their feet, they begin to trade blows with one another, landing several shots to the midsection and chest of each otherâ€¦
Johnson continues this assault of knees and now right hands to Gruber, and then one huge European uppercut to the jaw of Gruber and he is knocked to the matâ€¦ Johnson begins to land multiple standing elbow drops to the chest of Gruberâ€¦. Continuous and viciouslyâ€¦He stops and as he looks down at him, he backs up to the ring rope opposite and waits for him to rise back to his feet and he relaxes against the ropesâ€¦
Vera: He seems awfully confidentâ€¦
As Gruber rises, Johnson running over to him lands a running high knee to the head and this is turned into a neckbreakerâ€¦ Going for a pinâ€¦
2â€¦ Slightly weak kick out by Gruberâ€¦
Shane Cole: Johnson has begun an unbelievable onslaught on Gruber and after a neckbreaker like that I thought he had lost this matchup.
The over confident Johnson has now pulled Gruber to his feet, only to receive a kick to the back of the leg from Gruber, these become continuous, harder and are now weakening the legs of Johnsonâ€¦
Vera: He is coming back a littleâ€¦ *Adjusting her glasses yet again* He seems to applying a well learnt style to this assaultâ€¦
Gruber continues the MMA style kicks to the legs of Johnson, he takes him down with a fast, unsuspecting dropkick to the right jaw of Johnson, knocking him to the mat, shocking himâ€¦
Shane Cole: That was one hell of a dropkick, I donâ€™t think anyone seen that comingâ€¦
Johnson rises to be met by another onslaught of kicks from Gruber, only to be met a big boot to the jaw from Johnsonâ€¦Standing over him, he smiles, as he runs to bounce off the ropes, Peoples elbow to the chest!
Shane Cole: WOW! That will knock the wind out of Gruber!
Backing into the corner and gearing himself up, Johnson waits for Gruber to riseâ€¦
Vera: He is not very patientâ€¦
The stunned Gruber has risen to his feet, and slowly turns to face Johnson and in the blink of an eyeâ€¦ STING OF A BULLET! Going for a fast pin...
Laura Spencer: Here is your winner, Bill â€œThe Bulletâ€ Johnson!!
Shane Cole: That was one hell of a spear, it nearly ripped Hanz in twoâ€¦
Vera Cunningham: Wait - wait, someone's running t-towards the ring!
Jared Manning: Damn right it is - it's Xavier freaking Hightower... and he's got his friend from the hockey leagues!
The crowd angrily pops as Hightower races down the ramp, holding his favorite hockey stick from his days on the ice! Gruber and Johnson, weary from their match, cower as Hightower storms the ring, swinging his weapon like a barbarian looking to remove the heads of hapless peasants -
???: Hightower STOP!
Everyone - including Hightower - stop in their tracks and look up at the Titantron... to see a familiar, and unwelcome, sight: The TWE Board of Directors!
Board Member: Hightower... all of this is pointless. We understand that you want to be center stage - especially at Fight For The Future. We also understand that you feel some... need... to eliminate the other talent because you feel that they threaten your bid for the spotlight. But all of this posturing is incredibly pointless... not to mention infantile. Your impulsive drive to garner attention at the cost of our show is not approved. Therefore, it will stop here and NOW.
Hightower looks up at the Titantron angrily waving his hockey stick while yelling "YOU DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO."
Board Member: Actually, we DO tell you what to do. Know your place. But we're willing to chalk up your behavior to "eagerness to perform"... so we want to give you that opportunity. An opportunity that will come... AT FIGHT TO THE FUTURE. You will be in a match that will showcase your talents and prowess... against an opponent that you know particularly well.
Hightower is confused... as are most of the fans in the crowd! He looks up at the Titantron, demanding an explanation - right before getting knocked to the mat by -
Jared Manning: That dang misfit Rick Spears! I thought Hightower put him on the shelf for good!
Vera Cunningham: W-Well Jared, it l-looks like he's made a full recovery! And he hasn't forgotten what Hightower did to him in his very first match here!
Hightower tries to fight back, but the surprise attack overwhelms him - and his hockey stick is knocked out of the ring from Spears' initial strike! After taking rapid-fire punches from Spears, Hightower slips out of the ring, snatches up his hockey stick... and leaves up the ramp, looking back and vowing revenge on Spears - who stands tall in the ring after helping up Gruber and Johnson, much to the crowd's delight!
Jared Manning: This is an outrage! Why they let that little punk back in here is beyond me, but Rick Spears doesn't belong here in TWE - he belongs in traction, re-learning how to walk! And then he comes out here, jumps Hightower - and the fans actually cheer for this mook?!
Vera Cunningham: It looks like the stage is set for one of the biggest grudge matches ever at Fight For The Future - Hightower vs Spears! Spears is looking to teach Hightower a lesson - but can he even the score with the d-destructive Xavier Hightower?
The camera goes backstage to find TWE's newest Vixxen, AshAttack, warming up for action later on tonight...
AshAttack: My start to TWE, has certainly been a whirlwind one, I mean I walked into a ring a girl and I walked out a womanâ€¦ I was put in a hell of a match up, with a hell of a competitor, I was given a challenge and I overcame it, I showed the TWE fans what to expect from AshAttackâ€¦
In that match-up, I made a friend, someone who I know that I can trust, in this business you come across those that would steal the eye from your head given enough opportunity but, Pink, she is different, we both understand the dynamics of a friendship in a wrestling company but, we will make sure that it will not affect us. We respect each other too much; I have never respected a fellow star as much as I respect Pinkâ€¦
I am heading to my first PPV and I am in one of the biggest match-ups in Vixxen history, this is where I can begin to cement my legacy, I continue to showcase my talent and I plan to give that little Barbie Panzer a little crash course in what it means to be an actual star, someone with potential, someone who will one day be a championâ€¦ I will look forward to putting little Barbie in her placeâ€¦ She will know, what it means to take on AshAttackâ€¦
Vera Cunningham: Strong words from our latest addition to the Vixxens' Division... b-but I think she has what it t-takes to make it here, don't you Jared?
Jared Manning: No. Not only is she green, inexperienced, naive... but she's not dating the most eclectic man in TWE, yours truly, Jared Manning, Esquire! So no, I don't think she has what it takes to succeed! But that's neither here nor there... what's important is the next match we have scheduled here tonight!
Laura Spencer: Your following contest is set for one fall, introducing first from the LI, weighing in at 214lbs, Matt Ryder!
Jared Manning: Look at that Ryder kid... don't know how punks like him get anywhere NEAR this business! If I were the boss, I'd give that kid his walking papers without a second thought!
Vera: You are not the boss thoughâ€¦
Laura Spencer: And his opponent, from North London, weighing in at 220lbs, Akbar!
]Zach Ryder (Matt Ryder) Vs. Heath Slater (Akbar)
Start at 0:41 and End at 3.25
Coming back from being bounced off the mat Ryder lands a spinning heel kick to the back of head of Akbarâ€¦
Vera Cunningham: Matt Ryder is on fire tonightâ€¦ He is on a missionâ€¦
Ryder is watching Akbar rise again, making a run at him, he is caught, BIG BOOT to the jawâ€¦ Lying him out flat on the mat, going for a pin
2â€¦ A kick out by Ryder, slightly shocking Akbarâ€¦
Pulling Ryder to his feet, Akbar begins to focus on the midsection and gut of Ryder, relentless knees, repetitive and viciously to his midsection, backing him into the corner, weakening himâ€¦ Changing from knee shots to shots to the face and Matt comes back, they begin to trade blows in the corner of the ringâ€¦
Jared Manning: A comeback from Ryder! Do something, Akbar!
Ryder continues upping his defence against Akbar, he comes of the corner and continues his assault, throwing Akbar in the corner and lands an uppercut to the jaw of Akbar followed by a swift dropkick to chest, making him slide down the ropesâ€¦
Vera: I wonder where Matt will go, he has Akbar corneredâ€¦
Matt has now crossed the ring and making a run, BROSKI BOOT to the side of the head of Akbar, knocking him through the middle ropeâ€¦.
Jared Manning: That will knock him for sixâ€¦
Pulling himself up with the ropes be walks over to Ryder, struggling and dazed, Ryder hits another spinning heel kick and coming up behind him before he falls BROSKI WOO! Going for pin
Laura Spencer: Here is your winner, Matt Ryder!
Vera Cunningham: Gotta say, I'm impressed by this - what's the word? "Broski"? He's not cut from the usual s-style of wrestler, but he can get results - and the f-fans love him -
Jared Manning: Screw that. And screw him! Ryder just got lucky tonight! Watch, now he's going to go to some club and pretend to be one of those losers from Jersey Shore... jeez, what slum did they drag this mook out of?
