The lights go out and turn back on but with a gray tone and fog is quickly filling the arena floor.
Dudley: No, no, no, no!!
Pat: Oh yeah, I forgot you were on some crazy tirade against the Horror guys in the past. How’d that end up for you?
Dudley just looks at Pat and crawls under his desk so all that can be seen is the top of his head and eyes.
Pat: Such… a… little… girl. Haha!
The Sandman appears on the stage. His eyes glowing through his gas mask. He doesn’t take the time to soak up the adulation from the crowd and makes a beeline for the ring. Mike Muir and Artemis Eclipse are still there, holding their heads and ribs from their grueling match. They look at each other as they see him coming. Mike shakes his head “no” and dives out of the ring next to April. He grabs her by the hand and lifts her over the barricade. He hops over and they exit through the crowd, leaving Artemis by himself. Artemis hobbles up and leans against the ropes breathing heavily as The Sandman enters the ring and stares at him. The Sandman walks over to Artemis and holds the ropes open for him to leave. He nods his head and obliges.
Pat: Show of class from The Sandman there. Helluva man.
Dudley: Screw that dude. He’s about as nice as The Joker beating a Robin with a crowbar.
Pat shakes his heas as The Sandman gets ready to speak.
The Sandman: I’m going to make my point clear, right here and now what my intentions are. I’m back in JBW, back where I belong. I’m not here to make friends, allies or anything else. I’m here to make people realize how precious their lives are. How precious their sanity is. But first and foremost, I am here for the JBW World Heavyweight Championship.
TDA, I’m calling you out of retirement. You claim you’re done. You thought the company was going out of business so you packed your bags and left. You’re spineless. You win the biggest prize in the dance and leave? That’s not a Champion. So I’m telling you, I’m your number one contender. At our first Pay-Per-View back… I’m taking it. In three weeks I will be the new JBW World Heavyweight Champion.
Come out, come out wherever you are TDA. Next week on WARFare, I’ll be in the ring waiting for you. And it’s in your best interest to be there too.
The Sandman drops the mic and walks out of the ring to the crowd going crazy.
Pat: What a bombshell!!! The Sandman has laid the gauntlet down to TDA for next weeks WARFare!!
Dudley: I bet TDA won’t show up.
Pat: You never know Duds. These guys have a past. They’ve had interactions and confrontations… but never settled their problems. If anyone has a shot getting TDA out of retirement, it’s The Sandman. But right now, we have to pay the bills so we’ll be back right after this commercial break!
A man is sitting in front of multiple TV screens going over many different returns and debuts in wrestling. Eddie Juarez appears on one of the side screens he is looking at.
????: Eddie Juarez in EWNCW was shocking and it lead to good match with an even more shocking end, but I need mine to be bigger and better if I want to win over the viewers.
Another video of Ryan Wells making his IWA debut appears and immediately the screen is broken as the mystery man yells out angry.
????: No, No, No! I don't need to make ripples and fade out later on, I am here to make bigger waves and face the best.
Suddenly, a two TV screens in the middle catch the man’s eye. The first is Tommy Thunder making his JBW debut and turning heel by attacking TDA and the second is TDA's shocking entrance into EWNCW, and the looks of the stunned audience.
????: Yes, I think...no... I know that will work! Big, showstopping, jaw dropping, and ratings went through the roof. My Warfare entrance needs to be like those, but bigger. But after all the history I have made, all fans I have gained, what more can I do to get them to watch? Who can I strike down to make my mark and why should I even give them my attention in the first place? So much to plan, so little time, but I can't appear yet, I need to see what the plot is like, who the characters are and most importantly, who brings in the ratings.
The chair suddenly turns around to reveal Mike Hawk starring at the camera.
Hawk: But rest assured JBTV, I will be watching and when you least expect it, the Ultimate Aerial Predator will swoop down and reveal his prey soon enough. The era of Hawk starts again.
