THE LEAGUE: SEASON ONE WEEK FIVE - 7/2/2010

Posted by Webmaster

Season One, Week Five:
July 2, 2010

There was tension in the air as all of the last-minute details were taken care of. Eleven men and one woman sat in their respective locker rooms, each of them not being mindful of the others as they prepared for what was to come in their own way.

Some focused on last-minute physical training, wanting to be at their peak physically before they were due to fight.

Others focused on calming themselves mentally, knowing that a calm mind could help them when the chips were down.

Some prepared themselves for the rigors of going through two matches in one night—they knew who they were, and by the end of the night everyone else would as well.

And in one of those locker rooms, a plan for redemption began to form...

 

THE LEAGUE: WEEK FIVE
Live from Seattle, Washington
The usual pyro-fest starts off the show, as close to 53,000 people have packed Safeco Field for tonight's event. The crowd seems a bit rowdier than usual, given that this is the first League event held on American soil. Signs of all allegiances populate the arena, with a number of them stating that they want to be Sean or Shawn Arrows' tag partner in tonight's exhibition main event. Finally, as always, the camera cuts to ringside and our announce team.

Bob Sinclair: Happy Independence Day, folks, and welcome to week five of The League! Bob Sinclair, sitting at ringside like always alongside my broadcast colleague Frankie Garnett. And after last week, Frankie, you have to wonder if the tempers of Sean and Shawn Arrows are going to hinder their chances at winning their League matches.

Frankie Garnett: You also have to wonder if they will be able to even make it to the tag match tonight, though Sean has the worst end of it, facing the undefeated Robbie Maynard in a steel cage immediately before that match. He had nothing to do with setting up the situation—that was all Arrows, remember—but by the end of the night, it might be Sean who pays the ultimate price.

Bob Sinclair: Speaking of Shawn Arrows, his match is up now, so let's go to the ring to get the show underway!
 

SGRaaize (1-3) vs. Shawn Arrows (1-3)

Amelia Williams: Our opening contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Portugal, weighing 231 pounds...SGRaaize!

Frankie Garnett: OK, Bob, answer me this. Why in the heck does a technical wrestler have a lariat as a finishing move?

Bob Sinclair: How about you ask him sometime?

Frankie Garnett: And get nowhere due to his constant America-bashing? I'll pass.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Raleigh, North Carolina, weighing 207 pounds...Shawn Arrows!

Frankie Garnett: Got another one for you, Bob. Do you think that, given that Arrows is in the first match and Sean is in the last one, that he planned it this way?

Bob Sinclair: Honestly, I never thought of that, but I could see it happening. The mind games that would follow would be intriguing indeed.

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, in six minutes and forty seconds...SGRaaize!

Bob Sinclair: And this assuredly is not how Arrows planned this to work out for him.

Frankie Garnett: Part of me thinks this was on purpose; get done the match early, eat the loss if he has to, but otherwise be in excellent shape to get revenge on Sean in the main event of the evening.

Bob Sinclair: You might be on to something there.
 

ALPHA DIVISION MATCH: Nuclear Templeton (3-1) vs. Maxx Skabb (2-2)
Bob Sinclair: But up next is a re-match that a lot of people are looking forward to, and could easily be a major factor in the race for the Alpha Division lead.

Frankie Garnett: Templeton's been on a tear in recent days, and with the exception of last week, Skabb's been the man to watch. I'm expecting fireworks in this one!

The bell sounds to bring the attention to the ring. Billy Idol’s “Shock to the System” hits, heralding the arrival of the first wrestler.

Amelia Williams: This is an Alpha Division contest scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Atlantic City, New Jersey, weighing 278 pounds...Nuclear Templeton!

Bob Sinclair: Nuclear is honestly one of the surprises for me so far in the season. In a field with mainly technical wrestlers, Templeton has managed to pound his way into a share of the Alpha Division lead, record-wise.

Frankie Garnett: I'd imagine that if he were in the Gamma Division, he'd also be undefeated. That's the luck of the draw for you.

Disturbed’s “The Night” hits, as the opponent walks out with a stoic look on his face.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from the Orange County Correctional Facility, weighing 291 pounds...Maxx Skabb!

Bob Sinclair: Frankie, you've got more people who talk to you. Have you heard any details on how the Maynard/Skabb match ran so quick last week?

Frankie Garnett: No, Bob, I have not. I chalk it up to nerves.

Bob Sinclair: Nerves? When this guy has seen more than most of us care to think about, and you call it nerves?

Frankie Garnett: Eh, sounded good at the time.

Bob Sinclair: ...

Frankie Garnett: Hoo, boy, I definitely do not want to be in Templeton's boots tonight. Skabb looks to be about five different shades of angry at the moment.

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at five minutes and fifty seconds...Nuclear Templeton!

Frankie Garnett: Something's definitely wrong with Maxx, Bob. Losing two straight matches in under six minutes? I think he needs to be tested for bull shark testosterone or something.

Bob Sinclair: That's a European thing, Frankie.

Frankie Garnett: And your point?
 

Backstage: Alliance Formed
Bob Sinclair: ...I'm not about to describe it to you, Frankie. That would take entirely too long.

The camera shifts to just behind the curtain, where Nuclear Templeton has just returned from his win over Maxx Skabb. The camera follows him through the backstage area, and as Templeton nears his locker room the camera picks up someone leaning against the door, watching for him.

Shawn Arrows: 'Bout time you showed up.

There's a pause as the two men stare at each other.

Nuclear Templeton: I know why you're here, Arrows. The answer is "yes."

Shawn Arrows: Thought you would say that. I'll see you out there.

Arrows moves away from the door, walking off-camera as Nuclear follows him with a level stare.

Frankie Garnett: Arrows has found his partner for tonight! The question now is can Sean find a partner to combat the nigh-unstoppable force that Templeton has become?
 

Tarik Nolan (3-1) vs. Johnny Triumph (2-2)
Bob Sinclair: I have my guesses, but there's no time for that at the moment. It's time for our next bout; let's send it to Amelia.

”Regulate” hits the speakers, signaling the arrival of the first man in the match tonight and cutting off the speculation of the announcers once again.

Amelia Williams: This contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Shreveport, Louisiana, weighing 292 pounds...Tarik Nolan!

Bob Sinclair: Nolan had a slow start, losing to Robbie Maynard week one, but has bounced back considerably and currently is in solid contention for the wild card spot in the playoffs.

Frankie Garnett: Never mind that he's as boring as paint drying. The guy cannot entertain people to save his life!

Amelia Williams: His opponent...from Des Moines, Iowa, weighing 228 pounds...Johnny Triumph!

Bob Sinclair: Triumph coming in off a two-match win streak after dropping his first two. He also comes in as the most entertaining member of the roster, according to a fan survey poll.

Frankie Garnett: Oh, thank God. This might not be as boring as I thought!

Bob Sinclair: At least for the first part of the match, Triumph has been in control. If he can keep Nolan grounded, he'll have a marked advantage over the larger man.

Frankie Garnett: Of course, if he allows Nolan to his feet, Triumph's gonna get knocked for a loop.

Bob Sinclair: ...that was my point.

Frankie Garnett: Boo all you want, people. Nolan gives zero cares for your wants or needs; he's here to wreck people and walk away.

Bob Sinclair: Wait, not even ten minutes ago you were saying that he was boring.

Frankie Garnett: Oh, he is. But since winning is more important than entertainment, that makes Nolan successful in my book.

Frankie Garnett: Triumph couldn't get his fingers laced under the chin there, Bob. If he had gotten a good grip, this match would be over right now!

Bob Sinclair: I have to think you are correct on that, Frankie. The fans certainly thought it was over, and with this ovation you'd think Ken Griffey, Jr. had just won the World Series with a walk-off grand slam!

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of fifteen and a half minutes: Tarik Nolan!

Frankie Garnett: Nolan moves to 4-1, and Triumph is able to coax a match of the season candidate from his opponent in the end!

Bob Sinclair: Give Nolan credit, too—he knew when to press his advantage and it showed. That will put us halfway through tonight's card, with some solid matches all around. Frankie, your thoughts?

Frankie Garnett: All right...what's the deal with "grunge rock?" I mean, how cool can it be if you're wearing a lumberjack's hand-me-downs?

Bob Sinclair: I should have expected that. Way to class up the show, Frankie.

Frankie Garnett: Look, all I'm saying is--

Bob Sinclair: Hold that thought, Frankie. I'm being told that we need to turn our attention back to the locker room area.

Frankie Garnett: Again? For the love of...actually, wait. I hope it's the delivery guy with my frappa-cappa-double-grande-espresso!
 

Backstage: Criminal Intent
The scene shifts to the locker room area, where Robbie Maynard is seen sitting on the bench finalizing preparations for his main-event clash with Sean in the steel cage tonight. He just finishes getting his boots laced when the door nearly gets knocked off its' hinges by a raving madman in an orange jumpsuit. The intruder almost seems to be frothing at the mouth as he recklessly swings a chair, just missing Maynard as he dives off of the bench where the chair impacted.

Maxx Skabb: You think you can luck yourself a victory, and walk away with no repercussions? You think you can swindle your way out of a legitimate match with me? No way, Maynard!

Another Maxx Skabb swing misses, this time as Maynard darts to the side and allows the chair to slam into the cement wall. Seizing the opportunity, Maynard runs forward, his shoulder buried deep in the gut of the criminal and sending the two of them into the lockers along the adjacent wall. Maynard tries to shift his weight to get Skabb into the air for some sort of maneuver, but Skabb wants no part of that as hammering forearms and punches rain down on the exposed back of the undefeated warrior. The room suddenly gets a lot noisier, as security comes in to pull the two enraged combatants apart. Their stares say everything that needs to be said...well, almost.

Robbie Maynard: This isn't over, Skabb!

This brings a grin to Skabb's face, and in the next moment he's pushed his way through security and towards the now-abandoned chair. Picking it up, time seems to slow to a crawl as he pivots on his left foot, bringing the weapon in at almost a right angle to Maynard's face. He could not have placed it much better, as the flat of the chair crashes against the temple of the undefeated wrestler. Maynard goes down in a heap as the officials now surround Skabb, pushing him out of the locker room. The inmate smiles evilly, tossing the chair and nearly hitting Maynard with it again as he lets himself be pushed out.

Maxx Skabb: No, Maynard...it's over when I say it is!

Skabb's laugh echoes in the small room as the camera quickly cuts back to ringside. Bob Sinclair's face is a mask of horrified shock.

Frankie Garnett: Hey, wait a minute...where's the monkey with my coffee?

Bob Sinclair: I...almost cannot believe what I just saw. Tempers are flaring rapidly just five weeks into the season, and if things are bad now I shudder to imagine how much worse they can get! On top of which, you know Maynard isn't going to let this go without a fight.

Frankie Garnett: Looks like Skabb gave that Star a bang for his Buck, Bob.

Bob Sinclair: ...

Frankie Garnett: See what I did there, Bob? Star...buck...Starbucks?

Bob Sinclair: Seriously, Frankie? Are you proud of yourself?

Frankie Garnett: A little, yeah!

Bob Sinclair: Why does that not surprise me...?
 

Breaker (1-3) vs. Diamond (1-3)
Amelia Williams: Our next match is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, weighing 251 pounds...Breaker!

Bob Sinclair: Breaker's been a bit underwhelming this season. His only win came at the hands of SGRaaize back in week one; he desperately needs a win to have any hope of reaching the postseason.

Frankie Garnett: Somehow, I like his chances tonight.

Diamond’s music hits, bringing some of the crowd to their feet as she emerges, a look of pure vitriol on her face.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Aberdeen, Scotland, weighing 132 pounds...Diamond!

Bob Sinclair: Diamond's also had a rough go of it this season, but her lone win is also the only loss suffered so far by the Alpha Division-leading British Warrior.

Frankie Garnett: Everyone's allowed a bit of luck, Bob. Even you.

Frankie Garnett: Nope!

It is to the sound of silence that the first 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.

Amelia Williams: This is an Alpha Division match, scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from the United Kingdom, weighing 243 pounds...The British Warrior!

CAGE MATCH: Robbie Maynard (4-0) vs. Sean (2-2)
Spotlights in the arena point to the ceiling, as the steel cage is lowered from the rafters.

Frankie Garnett: Now this is one I'm waiting for. Sean has a match here, and then has to turn right around and be in what appears to be a handicap match.

Bob Sinclair: Why do you say that?

Frankie Garnett: We haven't heard who his partner is going to be! Remember, Commissioner Marshall stated that if someone couldn't find a partner, it would become a handicap match!

Bob Sinclair: That may be, but I think right now that Sean has other matters on his mind. With the cage ready, let's go to Amelia to get us underway.

Amelia Williams: Our next contest is a steel cage match, in which the only way to win is to escape the cage and have both feet touch the floor! Introducing first, coming down the aisle...from Liverpool, England, weighing 251 pounds...Robbie Maynard!

Bob Sinclair: So what do you think, Frankie? Can Maynard go 5-for-5?

Frankie Garnett: He's got as good a chance as anyone. The humanoids online seem to think he's got a 50% chance to do it, anyway.

Bob Sinclair: ...

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

Bob Sinclair: Sean striding to the ring with hardly a care in the world, it seems like. Look at the smirk on his face; does he know something we don't?

Frankie Garnett: What, that you're a mama's boy? We all knew that already, Bob.

Bob Sinclair: Will you stop?!

Bob Sinclair: Simple, if you make the opponent focus so much on the pain that he can't stop you, it's all over.

Frankie Garnett: The summer of what?

Bob Sinclair: ...never mind. But that win seems to have rejuvenated Sean, he looks ready to tear someone apart!

Frankie Garnett: But is he going to face Arrows and Templeton alone?

As Maynard rolls out of the ring, the figures of Shawn Arrows and Nuclear Templeton appear on the ramp, and walk to the ring. Sean's opponents slide into the ring as Sean slowly circles the ring, his eyes never leaving the pair in the ring. Arrows walks over to a corner and picks up the microphone.

Shawn Arrows: Well, Sean? Couldn't find anyone to team up with you? Pathetic. I'm going to enjoy--

Sean holds up one hand outside the ring, stopping Arrows in mid-sentence before looking to the ramp and waving his other hand once.

...


"Oh...it's time to rock and roll..."

Bob Sinclair: This is a surprise! I was expecting Tarik Nolan!

Frankie Garnett: I was thinking British Warrior, but yeah, I agree. Maybe Sean's saying that he can beat the two of them even with the handicap of a female partner?

Bob Sinclair: Dammit, Frankie, that was uncalled for! But in any event, I've been told that this will be a two out of three falls contest!

Sean and Diamond enter the ring, as the referee steps in between the two teams to make sure they each send a member outside. Nuclear promptly steps onto the apron in his team's corner, and after a moment Diamond does likewise.
