Chris Mason: Welcome back everybody and what an amazing match from Sagittarius Blue and Israel Pamich. Both men showing how great they are at the up and coming generation.
Jack Madison: Absolutely but up next is the main event where two skilled veterans go at it. Both men have had war of the words with each other in the past but tonight they finally meet.
Mason: Youâ€™re right up next we have Artemis Eclipse vs. One half of the EWNCW Blacklist Champions HolyJose! Letâ€™s go to the titantron where we have Artemisâ€™ promo awaiting.
Artemis is seen in his locker room. His hood is up, his head is down and his kendo stick is resting between his legs while he leans on it. He's sitting in a chair, the lights are low and he hasn't moved. Finally he begins to speak:
This tournament is different. Different concept, different execution... different beast. I haven't been in a tournament in years but I will do with this one just as I have done with them in the past... win. This time I go against HolyJose. A person I've been awaiting to face for a long time. We've had verbal back and fourths before and it should have led to something but it did not.
I will beat him tonight. I will win this tournament and I will show everyone here just how dominate I plan to be in 2013. 2012 is gone, shit happens. Things change. I've had multiple Championships this year and I plan to finish it with one more. Tonight, I win my final one for 2012 and kick off 2013 with a bang and a half. Jose, I recommend you bring your best because I am certainly fucking bringing mine. Bank on it.
Artemis lifts his head up and looks into the camera as we fade back to the arena.
Madison: Artemis looks focused and ready for tonight. Letâ€™s go back and see what HolyJose has to say about his opponent tonight.
*Earlier in the day a Black 2011 Chevy Camero pulls into the parking lot. HolyJose steps out wearing a plain white t-shirt, jeans, a pair of All Stars, a black leather jacket and sunglasses. He takes out his suitcase and makes his way into the arena. He looks into the camera and speaks*
HolyJose: Tonight I go one on one against a man Iâ€™ve supposed to have feuded with for a while now. First off in ICW when I won the Money in the Bank Ladder match. A company I went undefeated in and then it closed down. Afterwards we were supposed to feud in SRW over the World Heavyweight Championship and again that closed down before it ever started. Needless to say this match has been brewing for as long as I can remember and finally the world will get to see a spectacular match between us. But see here the Grand Prix is new and innovative. I donâ€™t need this for my career I only saw this as an opportunity to have a match against Artemis. See Artemis you and I are very similar weâ€™ve been snubbed so many times for a world title shot. We have won as many mid card titles that itâ€™s just repetitive now. But see the difference between you and I is that my legacy is cemented. Hell I am walking into this as a champion and not just any champion but a WORLD CHAMPION! See this Grand Prix is nice and all but my main goal is to be a singles world champion and finally achieve that. But tonight I donâ€™t care if I win or lose because in the end I have nothing to prove here but Artemis you have everything to prove. So letâ€™s go out there and put on one hell of a match only both you and I can do. Iâ€™ll see you there.
Mason: Thatâ€™s my pick to win not just the match but the entire Grand Prix. He is going one on one with Artemis Eclipse but Joseâ€™s experience could be the deciding factor.
Madison: I doubt it. Artemis is hungry for glory and defeating HolyJose will escalate him even higher. My money is on Artemis for the whole thing.
Mason: Well weâ€™ll just have to see then.
