THE LEAGUE: SEASON ONE WEEK NINE - 7/30/2010

Posted by Webmaster

 

Season One, Week Nine
July 30, 2010

The commissioner took the steps two at a time, surprising many of the fans coming into the arena as he climbed towards the skybox level. This was an unexpected trip—no one knew before tonight that he would be in attendance.

Reaching the appropriate level, he forced himself to collect his breath before knocking on the door once and opening it. The figure of The League's
de facto owner stood at the window, facing away from the commissioner as he watched the fans file in.

"You wanted to see me, sir?"

"Yes, Colt. I hear that tensions are high backstage."

"Nothing more than overly competitive athletes trying to make the playoffs, sir."

"One in particular, perhaps. Besides the fine you wanted taken care of, is there anything else concerning Mr. Maynard that I should be aware of?"

Colt paused, weighing his words carefully. "He's a maverick, sir. He's always trying to goad the other wrestlers into exhibition matches. Quite simply, the man loves to fight and would go out there twice a week if we let him. I've talked to the other wrestlers on the sly, and asked them to keep a level head when it comes to Mr. Maynard."

"Very good. On another subject, how goes the Virtual Arena project?"

"Ahead of schedule, sir. We're running tests this week to ensure that everything is ready to go come the end of September. It will be ready for the playoffs."

"Good. I'm already in talks with current arena owners to rotate the location of this arena on a per-season basis. I don't need to tell you what can result from this going as planned."

"Indeed, sir. If that will be all, I should return to my office, the show will be starting shortly."

"Very well, Colt. I'll be in touch."

The commissioner nodded, and turned to leave as the figure remained at the window. From this point, he could look down at the crowd, feel the enthusiasm radiating from them, and smile contently. This is what he dreamed of, so long ago.

And at the moment, nothing would stop him from seeing this ideal realized.

 

THE LEAGUE: WEEK NINE

The requisite pyro show erupts on the stage, drawing cheers from the crowd as the camera shifts to ringside.

Bob Sinclair: Welcome to the Halifax Metro Centre, and week nine of The League! Bob Sinclair, here at ringside as always with my broadcast colleague Frankie Garnett, and tonight the focus begins to shift towards the post-season, Frankie. After tonight, there will only be five weeks of action before the post-season, and it's time to put up or shut, as the saying goes.

Frankie Garnett: That's right, Bob. Everyone technically is still alive in the playoff hunt, but realistically speaking there's only seven or eight wrestlers with a hope of making the playoffs. You have to imagine that some of the League members are looking to play spoiler in the coming weeks!

Bob Sinclair: Indeed, and one can only imagine the tension backstage as these next few weeks narrow the field down to our champion. Let's not waste any more time, and send it to Amelia Williams to get our first match of the night under way!
 

ALPHA DIVISION: Maxx Skabb (4-4) vs. The Phoenix (2-6)

Disturbed's "The Night" hits the speakers as the first participant in the match comes out to a mixed reaction, despite the majority of the fans jeering him.

Amelia Williams: Our opening contest is an Alpha Division bout scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring, from the Orange County Correctional Facility, weighing 291 pounds...Maxx Skabb!

Bob Sinclair: Skabb comes in two matches behind division leader Nuclear Templeton and one match out of the wild card position currently held by Breaker; this is a must-win if he wants to remain in contention.

Frankie Garnett: At least he has an easy opponent to make it happen this week.

There is a brief pause before the opening chord of "The Instinct" hits, to complete and utter silence from the crowd.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from The End of Nowhere, weighing 367 pounds...The Phoenix!

Frankie Garnett: I don't know why he's even showing up anymore, Bob. He's four matches out of the division lead, and a loss here guarantees a non-winning season for him. He's much like his hometown baseball team—he sucks!

Bob Sinclair: Hard to argue that point, I'm afraid—Phoenix has been less than impressive this season, which is leading many to think that he's past his prime.

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of 14:40...Maxx Skabb!

Bob Sinclair: From out of nowhere, Skabb hits the finisher! Phoenix looked to have the match well in hand, Frankie!

Frankie Garnett: Just goes to prove my point—Phoenix is just a waste of a roster position.

Bob Sinclair: In any event, the pressure is now on Templeton to keep the lead at two matches, as Skabb pulls out a much-needed win!
 

Breaker (5-3) vs. Shawn Arrows (3-5)

Once again the expected silence is shattered, this time by Slipknot's "Wait and Bleed."

Amelia Williams: This contest is scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring, weighing 251 pounds...Breaker!

Bob Sinclair: Breaker's got to be feeling a little pressure now—he came in with the wild card position due to a tie-breaker, but with Skabb winning and Tarik Nolan yet to wrestle, it's got the be in the back of his mind that he needs a win here to keep the potential fourth seed in the postseason.

Frankie Garnett: I think we've only just started to see what Breaker's made of. Just watch.

The opening strains of Linkin Park's "Numb" usher in the opponent for this contest.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Raleigh, North Carolina, weighing 212 pounds...Shawn Arrows!

Bob Sinclair: Arrows is within a group of people trailing Gamma Division leader Sean by two matches; is he in a must-win situation?

Frankie Garnett: Almost. A loss here and he will be come next week, especially if Sean wins. That'd put Arrows three matches behind both the division leader and the wild card holder with five to go. Those are basically impossible odds.

Bob Sinclair: But with Arrows' aerial tactics, that could be the opening Breaker will need, especially if Arrows misses once too often.

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at twelve minutes even...Breaker!

Frankie Garnett: That one mistake cost him, Bob! Breaker was ready and took full advantage of it!

Bob Sinclair: And with that, Breaker ensures that he at least maintains the number four position for this week, and allows him to control his own destiny for at least another week!
 

Tarik Nolan (5-3) vs. Sean (5-3)

Bob Sinclair: Our next match is another one with serious playoff implications as a possibility. It's the Gamma Division leader Sean facing Tarik Nolan, who came in tonight a tiebreaker away from the wild card position.

Frankie Garnett: I think Sean's the one under more pressure here. He's got a division lead in arguably the League's weakest division, and everyone else is two matches behind him. A loss here and he opens the door for the others to catch up. This should be interesting.

The bell sounds. "Regulate" hits the speakers to signify that the next match is about to begin.

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

Bob Sinclair: Nolan looks rather confident tonight, Frankie.

Frankie Garnett: He's facing a Gamma Division opponent, Bob. He's 2-0 against them this season; he's looking for number three tonight!

Black Sabbath's classic "Iron Man" hits the speakers to announce the entrance of Nolan's opponent.

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

Bob Sinclair: A win here all but seals up the Gamma Division for Sean, especially if Triumph and Diamond both lose later on.

Frankie Garnett: In that scenario, he's up three with five to go; the division is all but his at that point. You know he's going to come in looking for a victory.

Frankie Garnett: That's it; call it off. Sean's basically locked the division up.

Bob Sinclair: You don't think anyone else is going to be able to challenge him for it?

Frankie Garnett: No. Look at how sure he was in the ring tonight. That man KNOWS he's going to the post-season, and no one is going to stop him.
 

SGRaaize (2-6) vs. Diamond (3-5)

The Portugese national anthem hits, drawing a fervent chorus of boos from the crowd.

Amelia Williams: This bout is scheduled for one fall! Coming down the aisle, from Portugal, weighing 231 pounds...SGRaaize!

Bob Sinclair: Raaize comes in four matches out of the Beta Division lead; it would take a miracle for him to get back in the hunt.

Frankie Garnett: In a division with Maynard, Nolan, and Breaker? Yeah, kid has little chance.

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

The opening lyric is enough to send the crowd into a jeering frenzy, as the opponent walks out with a confident smirk on her face.


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

Bob Sinclair: With Sean winning, Diamond has to win to stay within two of the division leader.
