WARPED 26 "Rebuilding: Phase 1"
Saturday, May 21, 2011
Plymouth, MA @ Plymouth Memorial Hall
You open the DVD of WARPED 26 "Rebuilding: Phase 1" and enter it into your favorite DVD player. The sounds of "Pogo" by Digitalism play as the WARPED Wrestling logo floats down from the top to the middle of the screen. Underneath that fades in to words "Play DVD". You click... and the show begins.
The show fades in as we see "May 21, 2011 - Plymouth, MA - Plymouth Memorial Hall " on the bottom right of the screen.
The screen flickers on and off. The camera cuts to what is inevitably playing in audio form across the arena. Water pelts against the shower tiles as the recently activated camera lens steams over. The cameraman wipes the lens fresh and we see “Simply Sensational” Sean Edmunds standing stark-naked, albeit the lower half “blurred” because this is a family show after all, a white bubbled poof in his hair from the, you guessed it, shampoo. Edmunds, just finishing up a rousing rendition of “Singing in the Rain,” looks over at the camera, the foam running down the side of his face.
Edmunds: “There’s no particular reason why I invited you into my sanctuary. No deeper meaning as I stand here, completely bare, washing away the unseen debris I picked up during the day – preparing for to step into the ring with SwitchBlade. The ridiculousness of my standing here, washing my hair while a camera documents my every move, should speak volumes in and of itself.”
Edmunds turns, mooning the camera, and leans his head back into the falling stream. As he washes the shampoo out, he continues.
Edmunds: “I’ll leave the half-baked analogies to Switch. Because while he’s sitting in his lockerroom scanning the medicine cabinet for inspiration, Sean Edmunds is preparing WARPED for its FUTURE.”
The shampoo gone, Edmunds turns the knob and watches as the steady stream slows to rogue droplets.
Edmunds: “You said it yourself, Switch. You had the World Championship once before. You represent the OLD WARPED. The FAILED WARPED. You couldn’t save this promotion from itself, and now you expect me to believe that, all of a sudden, WARPED is going to breach the ceiling and pull itself to new heights under YOUR leadership? Color me unconvinced.”
Edmunds grabs a towel from the rack next to the shower and wraps it around his waist. Droplets of water race down his chest as he steps onto a rubber mat.
Edmunds: “While you’ve done NOTHING in WARPED since your championship reign, Sean Edmunds has walked over EVERY … SINGLE … PERSON that Joey Matthew has put in my way. Call me generic, beg me to show you something different .. walk into the ring in just a few moments with the belief that I will bow in your presence and allow you to take one step closer to regaining the gold. All the better for me.”
He stares past the camera as Miss Karla walks into the shot.
Karla: “C’mon, Sean. We’re on a tight schedule here.”
She grabs the towel from around his waist, but stands in front of him blocking the view. Edmunds stretches his arms out as Karla dries his torso.
Edmunds: “WARPED needs a SAVIOR, Switch. It needs someone who can rebuild this place from the ground up. How can YOU do that? How can anyone expect SwitchBlade to carry the load on his shoulders? You had MONTHS to regain the World Championship. You had MONTHS to prove to the world that you are WORTHY of such an accolade. And you’ve squandered it time and time again.”
Karla wraps the towel back around his waist.
Opening Singles Match
New World Champion, Korrupt vs. Rico Calle
To the ring we go as ring announcer, Randy Long, stands firmly in the middle of the ring and ready to announce.
Randy Long: "Ladies and gentlemen of Plymouth, Massachusetts, welcome to a night of WARPED Wrestling!"
The crowd cheers and starts a "WARPED! WARPED! WARPED!" chant.
Randy Long: "Tonight's show will feature the Round One matches in a tournament to find a new number one contender for the World Championshiiiip! But first, we kick it off with our opening contest... Introducing first,from Asbury Park, New Jersey, weighing in at 200 pounds and representing The Movement- he is the NEWWWWWWWW World Heavyweight Champion - Korrrrrrrupt!"
Line Of Blood by Ty Stone hits the arena as the crowd look on slightly confused, as this isn't Korrupt. Crowbar walks out onto the ramp and stares everyone down, what looks like a dirty look on his face. He heads down the ramp and gets in the ring, still staring at everyone.
Crowbar walks over to Randy Long and grabs his microphone and visibly mouths "Get the fuck out" to him, causing Long to bail out of the ring.
Crowbar walks into the middle of the ring as a smile creeps onto his face. He holds the microphone up to his mouth..
Crowbar: "Ladies and Gentlemen! Introducing the NEW World Champion....KORRUPT!"
Jeepers,creepers....where'd ya get them peepers
Jeepers, creepers...where'd ya get those eyes...
Suddenly the lights go down and "Empire" by Machinae Supremacy begins to blare through the arena. Korrupt comes from the back looking around at the crowd, the lights throbbing a blood red, the World Championship around his waist. He walks down the ramp slowly, stalking his way towards the ring with his eyes glued forward. He charges and slides into the ring, his crawls forward towards a camera and mouthing things to it.
Crowbar stands back and claps, before shaking Korrupt's hand and throwing the mic back at Randy Long and heading up the ramp. Randy Long composes himself, and announces the next participant...
Randy Long: "And his opponent - from New York City, weighing in at 165 pounds - "Mean Street" Rico Callleeeeeeeee!"
The Streets "Blinded By The Lights" plays as Rico Calle pushes the curtain out of the way and covers his eyes, pauses, then removes his hands, bringing them out, and he takes a look at the fans who cheer him on. "Lights are blinding my eyes..." is heard over the sound system. He smiles as he gets up to his feet and runs down toward the ring and slides in. Rico spins and puts his arms out and Korrupt charges at him, but Rico quickly moves out of the way and returns with a dropkick that sends Korrupt to the mat!
Tony D: "Korrupt wants to get things going!"
The bell sounds! Rico sends himself into the ropes and launches himself at Korrupt hitting a front roll and then springing into a body splash. Korrupt rolls out of the ring to the outside.. Rico jumps to the top rope and then launches himself at the champ crashing into him and knocking Korrupt to the ground again.
Kris Red: So, is it just me, or was that really weird when Crowbar came out and announced Korrupt's entrance?
Tony D: It was weird, no doubt about that. Crowbar just lost the World Title to Korrupt and seemingly, he had no problem announcing Korrupt as the new Champ...
Kris Red: The Movement is one weird stable, I tell you that... oh listen to me, getting all corny soundin'. Boy, I tell ya what, Bobby.. Hank Hill.. blah..
Rico picks Korrupt by the head and rolls him back into the ring and then climbs on to the apron and starts to get in the ring, but Korrupt kicks the middle rope catching Rico in the sensitive spot. Rico falls into the ring and rolls around Korrupt stands up and starts stomping the downed Rico and then pulls him and hits a European uppercut the sends Rico crashing into the corner turnbuckle.
Tony D: Well the champ has got control back in this match.
Kris Red: Was there ever any doubt? He is the world champ.
Korrupt sets Rico up in the corner and then starts hitting Rico with some deadly knife edge chops as Rico’s chest turns bright red. Rico drops to the mat in a sitting up position as Korrupt backs up and charges at Rico and hits a dropkick to the face of Rico. Korrupt hops up again and gets in the face of Rico yelling at him and badgering him. Rico pushes Korrupt away and slowly gets to his feet as Korrupt comes running at him Rico notices the charging champ and rolls past him and then runs up the turnbuckles to the top and flies though the doing a moonsault and hitting Korrupt. Rico pops up and backs up to the corner as Korrupt gets to his feet Rico jumps up on to the second rope using it to slingshot himself at Korrupt hitting a spinning heel kick. Rico rolls though and again to his pops to his feet as Korrupt gets to his feet and is met by the bottoms of Rico’s feet as Rico dropkicks Korrupt again.
Tony D: Rico Calle is really showing his speed and skill.
Kris Red: I think Rico needs to keep this pace up cause Korrupt cannot keep up with him. I think Rico had extra beans for dinner.
Tony D: Kris!
Kris Red: What!
Rico sense he has the advantage of the match he pulls Korrupt to his feet and yells to the crowd and they cheer back to him. Then Rico gets Korrupt in a torture rack, But Korrupt starts to wiggle and elbow Rico in the head. Rico let’s go of Korrupt, as Korrupt slides down he spins Rico around kicks in the gut and then hits the Insane in the Membrane!
Kris Red: Insane in the Membrane! What an amazing move!
Tony D: The Frontflip DDT is NOT an easy move to pull off!
Korrupt sits on the mat shaking his head and yells at Rico as Korrupt goes for the cover….1….2...Rico throws a shoulder up and Korrupt looks pissed and he starts yelling at the ref.
Tony D: I honestly cannot believe we just saw Rico kick out of that move.
Rico rolls to his feet as Korrupt pay no attention Rico backs up and spins Korrupt around and hits the ARLTR and goes for a quick cover….1….2….Korrupt kicks out Rico pops to his feet and backs up as Korrupt gets to his feet Rico runs at Korrupt hitting the collision and Rico again goes for the cover..1...2....
Korrupt kicks out again Rico turns and goes to the corner and gets to the top rope in a signal jump, but Korrupt is right there to meet him at the top. Korrupt throws a few rights and lefts stunning Rico and then from the top rope Korrupt locks in the D.I.E and hits it from the top rope. The ref comes over and checks on Rico as Korrupt locks in the guillotine choke the lifts Rico’s arm and it falls to the mat and lifts it up again for a second time and then for a third time and again it hits the mat and then the ref calls for the bell.
Kris Red: Korrupt with Death's Infinite Ecstacy! Its OVA!
The bell sounds.
Randy Long: Here is your winner - Korrrrrrupt!
Korrupt stands in the middle of the ring and has his arm risen by the ref as a man jumps over the guard rail and slides in to the ring behind Korrupt. The man hooks one arm up and over Korrupts shoulder and across his chest and then his other arm goes up between Korrupts legs and lifts him up like a reversed body slam but sits out in a pile driver like move having Korrupt land on his head and neck first. The man stands over Korrupt yells something at him and then locks in a stretch muffler... officials and security come into the ring and pulls the man off Korrupt.
Kris Red: What the hell is going on?! Who is THAT?
Tony D: I don't know but he attacked Korrupt from out of nowhere and was bending him like a pretzel!!
Officials pull him away and take him out of the area as the referee checks on Korrupt.
Backstage / Interview
We're taken to the hallway area now where Kelly Calloway is seen standing by with none other than Craig Cohen, holding his trademark Menorah tightly.
Kelly Calloway: "Craig Cohen, you requested this time to come on and say a few words but let me ask you first what happened to you at the anniversary show?"
He snatches the microphone out of her hand.
Craig Cohen: "Listen up, sugartits! I no showed that event because I had BETTER things to do. Rico Calle isn't worth my time and honey, neither are you. So step aside."
He steps in front of her and looks at the cam.
Craig Cohen: "Just so all of ya know, Double C is back and I ain't playin' around with no burrito homeboy anymore. I want to go straight to the top! I DEMAND that I be put in the title tourney or ELSE!"
Suddenly a voice is heard from afar "Ey, what's that you said?"
The camera turns and its Rico Calle!
Craig Cohen: "You heard me, burrito boy. We're through, and you're in the past. So go back to jerking the curtain boy before I wrap you in one like the burrito you ARE!"
Suddenly Rico charges and the two begin to brawl in the backstage area! Kelly screams and jumps out of the way as they both hammer away at each other. In comes officials and security to break them up and pull them apart.
Rico Calle: "You're wrong, homie. This ain't over! You and me! Next week! Let's GO!"
Craig Cohen: "You wish, you wish.. LET GO OF ME!"
The security keep them apart as the scene fades.
World Title #1 Contenders Tournament - Round 1 Match
New Evolution Champion, Grendel vs. Cameron MacNichol
Back to the ring...
Randy Long: "The following contest is a Round 1 Match in the World Title Number One Contenders Tournament! Introducing first..from Columbus, Ohio, weighing in at 345 pounds, he is the NEW Evolution Champion, Grendel!"
The lights go black in the arena then the arena is flooded with green lights on the stage. As the whistling starts in the opening of Rammstein’s "Engel". Jade steps out from behind the curtain she slides to the right of the stage. The guitars stop pouring out over the PA system and as the lyrics start Grendel steps out from behind the curtain he grabs his left wrist and rolls it twice and then grabs his right wrist and rolls it twice, and then locks his fingers and craks then and rolls his neck twice and starts walking to the ring with a look of determination on his face. As Grendel walks to the ring with Jade by his side he pays no attention to the fans and when he gets to the ring ducks under the top rope. As Grendel enters he walks to the center and holds up one fist as the lights go to normal in the arena.
Randy Long: "And his opponent, from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in at 200 pounds - The Dirty Mac - Cameron MacNichol!"
As "Stranglehold" crunches out over the speaker system, Cameron walks out from behind the curtain arm-in-arm with his sister Dyan. They pause, he gives her a brotherly peck on the cheek, and they continue on down to the ring. He slides under the bottom rope, and she prompts the audience to cheer louder.
Tony D: "This is going to be quite the test for Cameron MacNichol as he faces quite possibly his biggest challenge to date in WARPED - the monster known as Grendel."
Kris Red: "Yeah no kidding. Grendel, the new Evolution Champeeeeen.. he ain't no easy pickens."
Grendel and Cameron stand in the middle of the ring and the bell sounds. Grendel just stares at Cameron and shakes his head and starts to make his to the ropes and step out, but Cameron steps him and turns him around starts throwing lefts and rights at Grendel.
Tony D: "What was Grendel going to do, leave?"
Having the advantage Cameron push Grendel against the ropes and sends him flying across the ring.
Kris Red: "I don't know but Cameron MacNichol is capitalizing bigtime."
Cameron flies at Grendel, hitting a mighty lariat sending Grendel to the mat. Grendel quickly rolls out of the ring and starts to head to the back stage area.
Tony D: "What in the world is going on?"
The fans boo as Grendel continues up the aisle. Cameron MacNichol rolls out and heads after Grednel and then pulls him back to the ring.
Kris Red: "I am slightly confused."
Grendel gets up to his feet and walks to the corner. Cameron slides in after him and walks up to him looks at Grendel, all Grendel does is shake his head and yells for Cameron to hit him. Cameron shrugs and then starts firing off rights and lefts at Grendel.
Tony D: "More hard right hands from MacNichol, but Grendel isn't fighting back. This.. what is going on?"
Kris Red: "Well I know that there was the untimely passing of his manager, Maverick, this past week... perhaps that's taking some toll on him. But this isn't like Grendel to not fight back."
Cameron Irish whips Grendel into the ropes and hits a back body drop on the rebounding Grendel. Cameron grabs Grendel by the hair and pulls him to his feet and then sends him into the ropes and throws a clothesline from hell that levels Grendel! Cameron rolls Grendel on to his back and locks in the stranglehold and Grendel quickly taps out!
Kris Red: "Its.. over..?"
The bell sound Cameron stands up and has a puzzled look on his face as the ref raises his hand.
Randy Long: "Here is your winner - Cameron MacNichol!"
"Stranglehold" plays over the PA System as Cameron MacNichol looks on at Grendel still very confused.
Tony D: "Well fans I have no idea what we just witnessed but its safe to say that Grendel did not want to wrestle this match.. and now its Cameron MacNichol who advances in the World Title Number One Contenders Tournament. Wow."
Kris Red: "This is b/s.. I want some answers!"
MacNichol climbs the apron and poses for the fans as they cheer, but he continues to look back at Grendel to make sure he isn't planning on a sneak attack... fade out...
Backstage / President's Locker Room
The camera fades into the office of President Joey Matthew where we see that he's on the telephone having a conversation, and seemingly stressed about something.
Joey Matthew: "As I told you once before, we're not going UNDER! Things are fi-"
Other person talks..
Joey Matthew: "-No YOU listen to ME! You don't call the shots, I do! And - hello? HELLO?"
There's a knock at the door and in comes a man surrounded by security, the man who earlier attacked Korrupt.
Joey Matthew: "Jesus... Oh, you. Drake Havoc, seems you have some company? Now, please to explain what in the hell you were doing out there attacking my NEW World Champion and dropping him on his NECK?"
Drake Havoc: "Joey I want a match at the next show.. I want somebody from The Movement! Look I am here to show the world that DRAKE ‘FUCKING’ HAVOK is back and is ready to kick ass!
Joey Matthew: "Well, if you don't know how to answer questions, that's going to be a problem. I WILL give you a match next week, Drake, and it WILL be against someone from The Movement - Korrupt. But here's the thing - if you pull any sort of stunt like you did earlier, I will rip up your contract and your shot here will be null and void. Do you understand?"
Drake Havoc: "You got it. Okay."
Joey Matthew: "You guys make sure he finds his way out of this arena, too. I don't want anything else happening like that."
The officials nod and lead Havoc out of the office as Joey has a seat and sighs.
Backstage / Hallway
The camera cuts to SwitchBlade pacing up and down the hallway as he mentally prepares himself for his match with Edmunds. Soon a phone can be heard ringing. SwitchBlade takes the cell phone out of his pocket and answers it.
We are unable to hear whoever it on the other end, but whoever’s talking is making SwitchBlade look worried.
SwitchBlade: Are you okay?!
SwitchBlade just nods to whatever the person is telling him.
SwitchBlade: I’ll take care of this. I promise.
SwitchBlade hangs up his phone and walks away from the camera in a hurry.
Tony D: What the heck was that all about?
Kris Red: I don’t know Tony D, but from the sound of things it can’t be good.
World Title #1 Contenders Tournament - Round 1 Match (FnX Rules)
Crowbar vs. Anton Chase
Randy Long:" The following contest is a Round 1 Match in the World Title Number One Contenders Tournament and will be contested under FnX rules! Introducing first.. from Parts Unknown, he is the FORMER WARPED World Champion - Crowwwwbarrrr!"
"Line Of Blood" by Ty Stone begins to play. The arena goes dark as green strobe lights illuminate the stage, while the ring is light up red. Crowbar steps out from behind the curtain wearing stressed looking jeans, black boots, and a black t-shirt, with an evil, uncaring smile to a chorus of boo's. He stands on the stage and looks around, his face only light up by the green strobes. He starts walking down to the ring, looking around and laughing at the hate the fans have for him. He climbs up the steps into the red and extends his arms out to his sides as the line "They say i'm the bastard son of one bad motherfuckin' line of blood" hits as the crowd continue to express their distaste.
Randy Long: "And his opponent.. from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 210 pounds - "The Future" Anton Chase!"
As Faint By Linkin Park blasts over the pa system, white smoke fills the entrance way as a person is seen behind the white smoke, as the person steps forward in front of the white smoke Anton Chase makes his way down the ramp way, with a cocky smile on his face and his arms out at the side, he climbs in the ring and climbs the second ropes and puts one hand up in the air.
Tony D: "And here we go with the second World Title Contenders Tournament match of the night pitting Anton Chase up against Crowbar, who can't be happy after the One Year Anniversary Show."
Kris Red: "Well no kidding, Tony D. You state the obvious. The guy lost his World Title. But if you recall, he's seemingly content with it, but I don't buy that one bit."
The bell sounds as Crowbar and Anton Chase lock up and battle to overpower one another. Chase starts winning this test of strength until Crowbar knees him in the stomach. Irish whip.. Chase off the ropes.. clothesline to Crowbar! Crowbar up.. Chase with another lariat! Crowbar gets up and Chase hits a clothesline and covers... 1... kick out!
Tony D: "Crowbar of course losing the World Title to his stablemate of The Movement, Korrupt, at WARPED 25... tonight, he gets a shot to become Number One Contender, but its up against the resiliant Anton Chase, who had a great showing in the Evolution Title Gauntlet at the same show."
Both men to their feet and Chase goes for an irish whip and sends Crowbar into the ropes and on the rebound he goes for another dropkick but Crowbar puts on the breaks and Chase crashes. Crowbar brings Chase to his feet and hits a Snap Suplex and covers.. 1... kick out!
Tony D: "Crowbar with another quick pinfall attempt.. trying to end this match as sooon as possible perhaps?"
Kris Red: "I certainly would hope not. We've yet to see any hardware come out and this match is under FnX Rules because of Crowbar!"
Crowbar brings Chase up and delivers a right hand, and another, backing Chase into the ropes. Crowbar charges in but Chase pulls the ropes down and Crowbar crashes to the ringside area! The crowd cheers as Anton points to the outside... Crowbar gets to his feet and Chase charges to the opposite ropes, bounces off and returns with a Suicide Plancha, connecting with Crowbar! The crowd cheers as Chase gets up and fist bumps. He puts the boots to Crowbar as Crowbar tries to scurry away but then brings his hand up and hits a low blow, and another! And a THIRD!
Kris Red: "Now THAT is utilizing the FnX stipulation!"
Crowbar smiles and goes for the cover... 1... 2.... Chase kicks out!
Tony D: "And pinfalls of course legal anywhere at all as well, but the three low blows were not enough to put Chase away."
Crowbar brings Chase to his feet and tells him he shouldn't had kicked out before sending him into the barricade! Crowbar reaches under the ring apron and pulls out a chair and tosses it right at Chase who collapses. Crowbar with a cover.. 1.. 2... kick out!
Tony D: "A two count following a brutal shot with a chair to the face.. Anton Chase is going to have a brutal headache after that one."
Crowbar brings Chase to his feet and rolls him into the ring and slides in. Chase gets to his feet as Crowbar does and goes for a right hand but Crowbar ducks and hits a belly to back suplex. Crowbar covers.. 1.. 2.. kick out.
Crowbar brings Chase up now and kicks him in the gut before whipping him into the corner. He follows up with a big corner spear! He then places Chase up on the top. Crowbar climbs up and tries for a Superplex... he connects!
Tony D: "What a Superplex!"
Crowbar goes for the pin 1... 2... but Chase is still able to kick out.
Kris Red: "A count of Twooooooo.. man Anton Chase is not giving it up easy!"
Crowbar brings Chase to his feet and Chase battles back with a jawbreaker followed by leaping up onto the shoulders and hitting a Hurricanrana~!
Kris Red: "RANA from Anton Chase!"
Crowbar gets to his feet, dazed, and backs into the ropes. Chase charges and hits a Cross body as both men go overboard! The crowd pops as Chase brings Crowbar up and takes him around the ring and slams his face off of the announce table! The guys all move out of the way as Chase climbs up onto the apron and pulls Crowbar up with him and looks to be setting up for a Suplex~ but Crowbar headbutts him and grabs him across the throat for a Chokeslam through the table perhaps but as he goes to lift him.
Tony D: "They are in a dangerous place right now!"
Kris Red: "They are gonna destroy my table damnit!"
Anton Chase keeps hold of the ropes and then kicks Crowbar in the gut. Anton Chase backs up and charges, leaping onto the shoulders of Crowbar and hitting a headscissors/rana that sends Crowbar down and crashing through the table!!!
Kris Red: "Damnit!"
The crowd cheers and chants HOLY SHIT! as Chase holds his balance on the ring apron. He stands up and raises his arms with a smile on his face as the crowd cheers. He then grabs his head as if to realize he can make a pin and jumps down and covers amongst the wreckage.. 1... 2... 3!!!!!!
Tony D: "Anton Chase with the pin!!!"
No!! Kick out!!
Kris Red: "Crowbar with the KICK OUT, mannnnnnnnn......"
Anton Chase brings Crowbar up to his feet and Crowbar's body is wobbly and he can barely stand. Chase whips him into the barricade and he crashes hard! Chase slaps the hands of fans as they reach out and cheer him on. He makes his way to Crowbar and delivers a right hand, and another, before bringing him to his feet and setting him up for a vertical suplex... right on the aisle! Chase covers... 1.. 2.. kick out!
Chase then heads under the ring and pulls out a kendo stick and a trash can and tosses them into the ring. He then pulls out a steel chair as Crowbar gets to his feet.. Chase throws the chair for a bit of retaliation from earlier and it unfolds onto Crowbar's head!!! He drops to his knees and down to the floor.
Kris Red: "Aww chyea and Anton Chase with some payback for earlier and it looks like he has better chair tossing skills than Crowbar. Ouch.."
Chase pulls the chair off of Crowbar's head and pulls him up to his feet and Crowbar is still so out of it. Chase rolls him under the bottom rope and climbs the apron and measures Crowbar off as he starts crawling away from the ropes.. Chase then hits a Springboard Elbow drop on the back of Crowbar's head! He rolls him over and covers.. 1.. 2.. kick out!!
Chase picks up the trash can and holds it in the air as he gets to his feet and the fans cheer. Crowbar grabs the kendo stick and brings it up between the legs of Chase! He drops the trash can and Crowbar picks it up and places it over the head of Chase and then swings the kendo stick at the trash can repeatedly! Chase stumbles back into the corner and collapses. Crowbar drops to one knee, shaking off the cobwebs. Chase pushes the trashcan off and he looks to be dazed and confused. He grabs the ropes and pulls himself up as Crowbar slowly rises up as well, still with the kendo stick in hand. Chase approaches and Crowbar gets up as well, swinging the kendo stick, but Chase ducks and kicks Crowbar in the gut and sets him up for the Starmaker Vertabreaker! He hooks the arms and spins, lifting Crowbar up, but Crowbar wiggles free to his feet, turns Chase around and in a fluid motion leaps up and hits the KFO! Crowbar covers....1....2....3!!!!!!
Kris Red: "Its OVA!"
The bell sounds.
Randy Long: "Here is your winner - Crowwwwwbarrrr!"
"Line of Blood" by Ty Stone hits the PA System as Crowbar has won this match! He gets to his feet slowly, still groggy from the bumps of this match. He shakes it off as the referee holds his arm into the air.
Tony D: "The fans continue to show their disapproval of Crowbar but he doesn't care because he is moving on in the World Title Contenders Tournament!"
Kris Red: "Man it looked like Chase was gonna hit the Starmaker but just like THAT Crowbar hits the KFO.. that thing comes out of NOWHERE!"
Backstage / Cafeteria
The scene fades backstage where we see PKA seated by himself in the cafeteria. He takes a drink of the water bottle and puts the cap back on before setting it down at the table next to him. Dressed in full ring-attire, PKA looks up to the camera and speaks.
PKA: "Look, I said it once this last week, and I'll say it again... Losing somebody you-"
He stops and corrects himself..
PKA: "--something you love is one of the hardest things to deal with. Grendel stole the Evolution Championship from me, and I know now..I must live with that. However it wasn't enough on that night in Chicago Ridge that I'd lose the one I loved.. no no.. see a good time with friends got ruined by one Malik Logan who couldn't stand not being in the spotlight any longer. Logan, why couldn't you just let me and my friends have some fun times, eh? Korrupt, new champ. Crowbar, all good. Your ol' pal PKA.. raising the hands of both of them. The Movement was to have our moment, and the One Year Anniversary Show was to be OURS for the taking. But you.. YOU! Malik Logan, you stuck your nose where it didn't belong. Remember what happened last time you did that? Oh yeah, we put you out of action for almost half a year. Damn, damn, damn. So tonight, I face you in a first round match in the World Title contenders tournament. Brilliant. I don't give a damn if you advance in the tournament or not, because my main priority now is to make sure you don't advance in life - PERIOD."
PKA grabs his water bottle and stands up, making his way toward the hallway to come out for his match.. Fade out.....
World Title #1 Contenders Tournament - Round 1 Match
PKA vs. Malik Logan
Randy Long:" The following contest is a Round 1 Match in the World Title Number One Contenders Tournament! Introducing first.. from WORRRRRRRRRCESTERRRRRRRRRRRRRR MASSACHUSETTTTTTTS!"
The crowd pops bigtime!
Randy Long: "..Weighing in at 220 pounds, This is Malik "The Hitmannn..." Looooooooooogannnnnn!"
"Act a Fool" by Lil Jon plays as the crowd in Plymouth, Mass goes nuts. Malik "The Hitman" Logan comes out of the curtain and puts his arms in the air to the left, then looks to the right, and the crowd gets pumped. He starts dancing down the ramp and as he makes his way toward the ring while slapping some crowd members hands.
From behind, PKA cracks a steel chair over the back of Malik Logan, and the lights come up, the crowd boos, and PKA soaks it all up. He then raises the chair and drives it into the back of Logan again, and Logan winces out in pain. PKA brings the chair up and down once more over the back! The referee runs out and tells PKA to back off and PKA pushes him away and tosses the chair down. PKA smirks and grabs Logan by his dreads and brings him up, showing him to those at ringside who are IRATE.
PKA now whips Logan into the steel steps, causing them to dislocate. Logan tries to get up in time before PKA arrives but he's hurting badly. PKA brings him up to his feet and rolls him into the ring and smirks as the fans boo. PKA reaches up to the ropes and slowly pulls himself up onto the apron. He looks left, he looks right, and continues to grin as the fans begin an "ASSSSSSSSSSHOLE!" chant. PKA enters the ring as Malik Logan slowly starts pushing himself up onto all fours. The referee is checking on Logan and holding his hand up to PKA, telling him to back off. PKA shakes his head and requests a microphone and one is handed off by Randy Long from the announce table.
PKA: "Logan, did you honestly think that I would allow you to come out and spoil The Movement's big night and get away with it? You must be out of your FUCKING mind!"
PKA kicks Logan in the gut!
PKA: "And all of YOU! Is this your beloved hometown hero? Do you LOVVVVVVVE Malik Logan?"
The fans cheer for Logan now.
PKA: "Well too bad! Your cheers aren't going to SAVE him from me. Your cheers aren't going to SAVE him from Korrupt, or from Crowbar. Oh, no no."
PKA turns his attention to the ref.
PKA: "Ring the bell."
The ref stands up and pleads with PKA, shaking his head that its not right!
PKA: "Listen to me. I don't CARE what's right and what's not. He's still moving. He's still alive.. for now.."
A smirk from the Ultraviolent Perfectionist..
PKA: "Ring.. that.. bell."
The ref hesitates but gives in and calls for the bell and PKA tosses the microphone down and immediately grabs Logan by the dreads and pulls him to his feet, placing his head under PKA's arm. He grabs the tights and pulls him up, dropping him right on his head with the P-Krusher! PKA sits up, smiling, and dusts his hands off before laying atop Logan's limp body... 1... 2... 3...
The bell sounds.
Randy Long: "Here is your winner - P.. K.. A!"
PKA grabs Logan by his dreads and pulls him up to his feet and places his head under his arm again.. wasting no time now to hit a SECOND P-Krusher just for the fun of it. He gets to his feet and orders the referee to hold his arm into the air as "Hang Me Up To Dry" plays over the PA System. PKA spits down at the body of Logan before exiting the ring and jawjacking with the Massachusetts crowd all the way to the back.
Backstage / Locker Room
The camera cuts to the locker room. A door can be heard opening violently, and soon SwitchBlade appears on camera.
The camera turns to Grendel who is sitting on a bench lacing up his boots. He looks up at SwitchBlade.
SwitchBlade: What did you do to Claire?! We had an agreement!
Grendel gets up from his seat and walks over to SwitchBlade. He towers over him, but SwitchBlade doesn’t back down.
Grendel: Relax, SwitchBlade. I didn’t do anything to her. She’s fine. I just wanted to get you in here so we could talk.
SwitchBlade: Talk? TALK?! You’ve got a lot of nerve Grendel, but clearly not a lot of brains!
Grendel: I’m done with this little game of ours.
SwitchBlade: What are you talking about?
Grendel: I have done things in my life that I never imagined myself doing…all because I thought I was left behind by the world. I was wrong, and I seek atonement for my sins. SwitchBlade, I am going to offer you something that you more than anyone else deserve: a chance to get rid of me, and make WARPED a better place. You're still in this world title tournament, and it seems likely that you're going to advance. When you reach the end, i'll be waiting for you, and we WILL have a match of our own. And it will be worth much more than just another world title shot. SwitchBlade, if you win I will leave WARPED forever. You won’t have to deal with me ever again.
SwitchBlade: Well how about that? It’s been awhile since something you’ve said has put a smile on my face. I look forward to kicking your ass out the door.
SwitchBlade goes to leave, but Grendel grabs SwitchBlade by the shoulder and pulls him closer. SwitchBlade looks ready to fight, but Grendel glares at him, the fire in his eyes burning as bright as ever.
Grendel: Just know this, SwitchBlade. If you don’t beat me…bad things will happen. VERY…BAD…THINGS!
Grendel pushes SwitchBlade aside and walks out of the room. SwitchBlade watches Grendel leave, a new motivation for winning born inside him.
Main Event - World Title #1 Contenders Tournament - Round 1 Match
"Sensational" Sean Edmunds vs. SwitchBlade
Randy Long: "The following contest is the final First Round match in the World Title number one contenders tournament! Introducing first...from Boston, Massachusetts, weighing in at 228 pounds - "Sensational" Sean Edmunds!"
The first few guitar riffs of "Brain Stew" by Green Day blare over the PA system. The lights dim and four local area women walk out holding Fourth of July sparklers ... they line the outside of the entrance way ... and through the curtain steps "Simply Sensational" Sean Edmunds. Miss Karla follows behind him and as they make their way to the ring, Edmunds jaws with a few fans. Edmunds climbs one of the corners and throws his hands in the air as the fans jeer him. He hops off, turns around and waits for Miss Karla to take off his robe.
Randy Long: "And his opponent.. also from Boston, Massachusetts, weighing in at 192 pounds - SwitchBlaaaaaade!"
"Lost My Way" by Finger Eleven plays.. SwitchBlade slowly steps through the curtain to a large number of cheers. He is dressed in his usual attire of a black short sleeve shirt with a leather jacket, blue jeans, and black shoes. He also has on his trademark gold belt and sunglasses, but this time also has a necklace with a switchblade pendant on it. Upon making his way to the ring he high fives a few of the fans, and then slides into the ring. He gets up, takes off his sunglasses and necklace and tosses them aside. He waves to the fans, and then offers his opponent a handshake before starting the match.
Tony D: "Both Bostonians.. SwitchBlade offering Edmunds a hand before the match.."
Edmunds goes to shake but then pulls his hand away and shakes his finger in the face of SwitchBlade.
Kris Red: "Aww, good ol' disrespect."
The bell rings and both men lock up and SwitchBlade backs Edmunds up into the corner.. the referee asks for a break and indeed we do get a clean break. Both men make their way back to the middle of the ring and tie up again..SwitchBlade takes Edmunds down with an arm drag and locks in an arm bar, but Edmunds fights out and locks in an arm bar of his own. SwitchBlade quickly gets to the ropes and Edmunds doesn't want to let go. The ref starts a 5 count... 1... 2... 3... 4... Edmunds lets go and gets to his feet. SwitchBlade rises up and he yells at the ref to not let that stuff go down!
Tony D: "Sean Edmunds is being aggressive!"
Kris Red: "Thankfully he's got clothes on now.. I'd hate to see him aggressive in the shower.."
Tony D: "I.. uh.. okay Kris."
Sean Edmunds taunts SwitchBlade, shaking off his arm in mockery of SwitchBlade who is grabbing his arm. SwitchBlade retaliates and comes right at Edmunds in the middle of the ring.. lock up.. Edmunds with the go behind into the key lock, but SwitchBlade elbows his way out and goes behind and looks for a German Suplex but Edmunds hooks his leg around Switchy's.. Edmunds looks for a Northern Lights Suplex but SwitchBlade knees him in the gut and goes for the Implant DDT but Edmunds grabs the arm and spins out and throws a right hand.. connecting.. Switchy then fights back with one of his own. They continue to trade punches but SwitchBlade gets the advantage and has Edmunds reeling, stepping back into the ropes. The crowd is well behind SwitchBlade as he grabs the arm of Edmunds and goes for the irish whip but Edmunds holds onto the ropes and won't give. Switchy with a kick to the gut solves that problem, and he follows up with an irish whip and Edmunds hits the ropes and returns to get a back drop! Edmunds pops back up and stumbles back into the ropes. SwitchBlade follows through but Edmunds brings his knee up into the gut, then sends SwitchBlade through the ropes to the outside, and SwitchBlade lands on the mat. Edmunds poses for the crowd and they give a mild applause but there are more boos for the "Sensational" one, despite the hometown favor for both men. Edmunds grabs the ref by the collar and tells him "COUNT! HIM! OUT!" and the ref tells him to back off! Sure enough though the count begins as SWitchBlade starts rising to his feet.
Kris Red: "SwitchBlade's gotta answer the 10 count, yo.. otherwise its all Edmunds' win!"
1... 2... 3... SwitchBlade grabs the ropes and gets up on the apron as Edmunds taunts him in the ring. SwitchBlade spits at the face of Edmunds and that irritates him so he charges in but SwitchBlade grabs his head and snaps it off the top rope! Edmunds bounces back and hits the mat, clutching his throat, as SwitchBlade slides into the ring and makes a cover... 1... 2... kick out!
Tony D: "Sean Edmunds has to keep focused.. he can't let SwitchBlade get to him that way! It might end up costing him."
SwitchBlade now locks in a Front Facelock as his homestate fans here in Massachusetts cheer him on. Edmunds uses his arms to start pushing himself up, and SwitchBlade holds onto the submission and turns it into a side headlock.. Edmunds delivers a couple of elbows to the midsection and then brings his hand up to the face of SwitchBlade and pokes him in the eye, causing the hold to be released. A chorus of boos fills the Plymouth Memorial Hall as Edmunds smiles and hits a snap mare on SwitchBlade, then locking in a rear chinlock.
Tony D: "The rear chinlock applied as both of these men are both technically sound and know their way around a ring.. its been back and forth this entire match."
SwitchBlade hears the fans backing him and wastes no time fighting back up to his feet, but Edmunds delivers a few elbows to the back of the neck of SwitchBlade, then turns him around and delivers a right hand that backs SwitchBlade into the corner.
"SwitchBlade! SwitchBlade!" chants fill the venue. Sean Edmunds flips the fans off and continues to work on SwitchBlade, now with knife edge chops.. one after another.. a total of five before SwitchBlade stumbles forward and drops to a knee. Edmunds runs to the far ropes and returns with a Swinging Neckbreaker, then covers.. 1.. 2.. kick out!
Edmunds goes right back into the rear chin lock, but SwitchBlade fights out again, getting to his feet. SwitchBlade maneuvers himself around and tries for a belly to back suplex, but a left hand to the face from Edmunds blocks this, and Edmunds delivers a standing dropkick that sends SwitchBlade through the ropes and down to the floor. Edmunds stands up and taps his head with a smile on his face, signalling that he's smarter than SwitchBlade.
Tony D: "What does Edmunds have in mind here?"
He gets out on the apron and calls for the Asai Moonsault but just as he's about to jump up, SwitchBlade clips his feet and he hits the apron with a hard landing!
Kris Red: "AWFUL landing for Edmunds thanks to switchBlade!"
Edmunds drops to the floor and SwitchBlade brings him to his feet and rolls him into the ring and slides in after. SwitchBlade brings Sean Edmunds to his feet and goes for a snap suplex and he connects, and holds on and turns it into a Guillotine Choke! Edmunds reaches out for the ropes but can't get to them as SwitchBlade has this hold locked in tight! The ref checks on if Edmunds wants to call it quits but he shakes his head but he is fading fast! Edmunds uses his lower body strength to somehow battle up to his feet, but he then collapses and SwitchBlade keeps the hold locked in! Edmunds maneuvers his feet in a way to reach the ropes and gets his left boot on the bottom rope, causing the ref to call for SwitchBlade to break the hold, which he does, much to the dislike of the fans here in Plymouth.
Tony D: "So Kris it seems as though we might be seeing the end of the odd relationship between Grendel and SwitchBlade soon if the two finally meet at the end of the tournament..."
Kris Red: "I honestly don't know what's going on and I don't think anyone does. Its impossible to keep up with that. One minute they're feuding over a title, the next they have problems because of some little girl, the other moment they're hanging out in the locker room staring each other down.. I don't FREAKING get it!"
Both men up to their feet, keeping their eyes locked on each other, intensity in each others eyes. They circle the ring and meet in the middle.. lock up.. Edmunds with a go behind on SwitchBlade, but SwitchBlade counters and applies the reverse waistlock to Edmunds. Edmunds goes for a back elbow but SwitchBlade ducks and grabs him in a bear hug, looking for a belly to belly suplex, but Edmunds delivers a headbutt and hits the ropes.. on the rebound he returns with a clothesline but SwitchBlade ducks and applies the reverse waistlock and quickly hits a Release German Suplex! Switchy pulls Edmunds to the middle of the ring and covers, hooking the leg.. 1.. 2.. kick out!
Tony D: "Two count off the fast Release German !"
SwitchBlade now brings Sean Edmunds up to his feet and scoop slams him to the mat, and drops down for a cover.. 1.. 2.. Edmunds kicks out again.
Kris Red: "Just a two..hook that leg, mannn.."
SwitchBlade now goes to lock in a Camel Clutch and gets it locked in and Edmunds is reaching out for safety. He manages to roll his body and get SwitchBlade off of him kind of, but SwitchBlade turns it into a rear naked choke. Edmunds grabs the rope and SwitchBlade is forced to release the hold. Both men get to their feet and SwitchBlade goes for a clothesline but Edmunds ducks and hits him with a back clothesline, taking the former champ down. Edmunds puts the boots to switchBlade but Switchy rolls to the ropes and the ref makes him back off. SwitchBlade gets to his feet and Edmunds charges in with a knife edge chop but SwitchBlade ducks and goes behind... Dragon Sleeper! He pulls Edmunds away from the corner and drops him with a Reverse DDT! Cover~ 1... 2... kick out!
Kris Red: "Its about damn time we get a main event like this. Look at these guys go!!!"
Both men get to their feet and SwitchBlade delivers a right hand, followed by one from Edmunds, as the two men are still going strong, but the match is wearing them down slightly. Edmunds stomps the foot of SwitchBlade and hits a Piledriver! Edmunds covers... 1... 2... kick out! Edmunds slaps the mat and gets in the ref's face but its only TWO!!!
Tony D: "Edmunds can't take his eye off the prize!"
Sean Edmunds brings SwitchBlade up and bodyslams him tot he mat and he then points to the top buckle as the crowd boos. He climbs up, back to SwitchBlade and he begins gaining his balance on the top. Meanwhile SwitchBlade gets to his feet and hits the ropes, causing Edmunds to get crotched! SwitchBlade climbs up as the crowd cheers him on.. he goes for a belly to back SUPERPLEX but Edmunds elbows out of it and SwitchBlade falls to the mat. Edmunds then comes off the top with a High Arching MOONSAULT and it connects!!! He covers, hooking the leg! 1..... 2...... 3!!!!!!!!!
Tony D: "Goodnight SwitchBlade!"
Kris Red: "JUST TWO!"
He kicks out just in time!
Tony D: "Wow that was a close one!"
Edmunds is pissed the fuck off! He gets in the face of the referee once more and the ref pushes him saying he will get DQ'd if he doesn't stop it! Sean turns back to SwitchBlade who is getting to his feet and he kicks him in the face, causing him to drop back down. Edmunds gets on top of SwitchBlade and hammers away with right hands as the referee begins a 5 count... 1... 2... 3... 4... 5... he pulls Sean off and gets up in his face, warning him to knock it off! SwitchBlade gets to his feet and Edmunds turns to him and SwitchBlade tackles him and hammers away with his own mounted punches! The ref starts up a 5 count but it seems to take a little longer than the other 1.......2 ............ 3..... 4........... SwitchBlade gets up off of Edmunds and taunts to the jampacked crowd and they cheer him on. Edmunds rolls out of the ring and yells up at the referee, blaming him for not doing his JOB right!
"TO HELL WITH THIS!"
Edmunds starts his way up the aisle as SwitchBlade looks on in the ring, wondering what the hell he's doing??? The referee starts a 10-count...... 1..... 2........ SwitchBlade then leaves the ring and the crowd cheers as he charges up at Edmunds but Edmunds was READY for him as he turns around and boots SwitchBlade in the FACE! SwitchBlade tumbles back and Edmunds puts the boots to his body. The ref comes out of the ring and tells them to break it up as Edmunds brings SwitchBlade to his feet and hits the NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX on the FLOOR! Edmunds then gets over SwitchBlade and repeatedly punches him in the face as the referee tries to pull him off. Edmunds elbows the referee while trying to pull back and the ref calls for the bell! Edmunds stands up and gets in the referee's face and the ref shakes his head and waves his arms, saying this one is OVER.
Randy Long: "Here is your winner as a result of a disqualification - SwitchBlaaaaaaade!"
Edmunds looks back at SwitchBlade with fury on his face, then to the referee, then to SwitchBlade who is out on the floor. Edmunds grabs SwitchBlade and pulls him to his feet by his hair and sets him up for the Northern Lights Suplex but walks him toward the barricade and then hits the NORTHERN LIGHTS INTO THE BARRICADE! SwitchBlade is out cold as the ref continues to call for the bell. Edmunds spits on SwitchBlade as the hometown crowd looks on concerned for their hero and boos Edmunds. Sean Edmunds makes his way toward the back slowly...ignoring the fans who are cussing him out on the way by.
