THE LEAGUE: SEASON ONE WEEK FOUR - 6/25/2010

Posted by Webmaster

 

Season One, Week Four:
June 25, 2010

As the sun rose on this day, tensions ran high among the twelve as the reality began to sink in. The season was a month old; in two months’ time the playoffs would be here. The time to jockey for position wasn’t next month...it was right now.

And for some, tempers would flare by the end of the night....

 

THE LEAGUE: WEEK FOUR

The shot turns to the obligatory pyro demonstration as a capacity crowd of 19,000-plus cheers from the confines of General Motors Place. A large contingent of the fans are wearing Canuck jerseys, and also featured are several signs welcoming back one of the more well-known wrestlers, The British Warrior. After panning the crowd for a bit, we go to ringside, and our announcers.

Bob Sinclair: Good evening, everyone, and welcome to the Great White North!

Frankie Garnett: Man, why do you have to be racist in here?

Bob Sinclair: ...seriously?

Frankie Garnett: Just get on with it.

Bob Sinclair: We’re in Vancouver tonight, and for almost the entire week the buzz has been surrounding the matchup between Robbie Maynard and Maxx Skabb. Frankie, are you looking forward to this as much as the rest of the fans watching are?

Frankie Garnett: Not as much, no. It all pays the same, in the end.

Bob Sinclair: ...I see. Anyhow, seeing as we’re finally out of Japan, it should be noted that here in Canada, the match can be stopped by way of blood loss, if the ref deems it necessary, and the ref is also a bit lax on the rules.

Frankie Garnett: Oh, good, we FINALLY get to leave it in the wrestlers’ hands. Let’s go already!
 

GAMMA DIVISION MATCH: Shawn Arrows (1-2) vs Sean (1-2)

Bob Sinclair: You heard the man! Let’s send it to Amelia Williams for our first match of the night.

Amelia Williams: Our first match of the evening is a Gamma Division match, set for one fall! Introducing first, from Raleigh, North Carolina, weighing 207 pounds...Shawn Arrows!

Bob Sinclair: Starting off with what should be a good match tonight.

Frankie Garnett: Who cares? I doubt any of these fans do.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Charlotte, North Carolina, weighing 230 pounds...Sean!

Frankie Garnett: Look, Bob, I’m heading out to get a soda before the show really starts. You want anything?

Bob Sinclair: Frankie, unless you want to be fired, you might want to sit down here and call the match.

Bob Sinclair: I couldn't tell, Frankie, but the end result is that Sean pulls out a victory from the jaws of defeat!

Frankie Garnett: I wouldn't want to be the one who gets in Arrows' way when he realizes what just happened....

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of eleven and a half minutes...Nuclear Templeton!

Bob Sinclair: And Templeton is quick to bounce back from the loss last week. He seems to be in top form once again.

Frankie Garnett: Not bad for someone who claims to only know about a dozen moves or so. I wonder why—

Bob Sinclair: Hang on, Frankie, I'm being told that there's a disturbance backstage!

Frankie Garnett: Wait, what? This ain't SWF, there isn't supposed to be this sort of stuff going on!
 

Backstage: Justice is demanded

The camera shifts to backstage, where a rather determined Shawn Arrows is trying to wade through a security patrol to get into the office of Commissioner Colt Marshall.

Shawn Arrows: Marshall! I know you can hear me! Get these goons out of my way or I will take them out myself!

Security Guard: You can't even take out any of the other members of the League, Arrows. What makes you think you can walk over us?

There is a pause as a look of stone cold anger falls over Arrows' face. In the next moment, the offending goon is taken out by a spinning heel kick, and a second staggers back after catching an elbow to his jaw. The remaining four swarm in, keeping Arrows at bay as the wrestler struggles to break free. In the next moment, the door to the Commissioner's office opens, and the man steps out himself, looking rather annoyed.

Colt Marshall: You better have a good reason for taking out two of my guards, Arrows, or so help me I'll see you hauled away by the Mounties.

Shawn Arrows: That referee was crooked, Marshall! I was still in the match, was about to break free from that hold and he called it off! I demand a rematch!

Colt Marshall: Afraid I can't do that, Arrows. It's against League regulations.

Shawn Arrows: You son of—

Colt Marshall: HOWEVER...I can do something, if it'll make you feel better, though you'll have to wait a week for it. After the show ends next week, we'll have a little "exhibition" match. You, and a partner of your choosing, against Sean and a partner of his choosing in a tag team match. No records, no money, nothing that will affect your standings in the League will be affected. But if you're so desperate for justice, Arrows, you'll find a way to swallow your pride and find a partner...and if one of you doesn't get a partner, then it'll be a handicap match. You have a week to find a partner, Arrows. I suggest you use it wisely. Now get out of here before I do decide to press charges.

Frankie Garnett: An exhibition match? What the heck?

Bob Sinclair: A bonus match next week for our fans in Seattle, Frankie! The question is, who will the two mystery partners end up being?
 

Tarik Nolan (2-1) vs The Phoenix (1-2)
”Regulate” hits the speakers, signaling the arrival of the first man in the match tonight and cutting off the speculation of the announcers.

Bob Sinclair: Oy, vey....

Bob Sinclair: Breaker seems to be a bit calmer than we’re used to, Frankie.

Frankie Garnett: Yeah, yeah...let’s go already! I’m getting restless!

It is to the sound of silence that the second wrestler of the match walks to the ring, seemingly not disturbed by the fact that the arena didn't have his choice of theme music available. The fans cheer for a former local hero as he strides to the ring.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from the United Kingdom, weighing 243 pounds...The British Warrior!

Bob Sinclair: Warrior seems totally at ease here. He’s done a lot of wrestling in this city in the past.

Frankie Garnett: Yeah, but what good will it do him here?
