THE LEAGUE: SEASON ONE WEEK ELEVEN - 8/13/2010

Posted by Webmaster

 

Season One, Week Eleven
August 13, 2010

He walked into the arena, just like he had the last ten weeks. And as usual, he wasn't seen by anyone; he wasn't a big name, why would people pay attention to him?

Forcing the depression out, he walked into what was labeled as his locker room, and had to stop at the sight that greeted him. This wasn't a locker room, it was a damn broom closet that he couldn't even fit into! How the hell was he supposed to do anything in that?

A moment later, he was shoved up against the too-small doorjamb as another of the wrestlers passed by. "You have a locker room, get your obese @$$ in there!" The derisive laughter of Johnny Triumph echoed back down the hallway as he proceeded to his own locker room.

Sighing, the big man slammed the door shut. And unbidden, a crimson haze clouded his vision, driving his anger ever higher.

If he couldn't earn respect, he would beat it out of someone. He was already out of the playoff hunt. It didn't matter if he won or not.

Sometimes, pride was just a little more important.

 

THE LEAGUE: WEEK ELEVEN
The night sky is the perfect backdrop as the requisite pyro goes off to start the eleventh show of the season. A standing-room-only crowd of 12,111 erupt in cheers as the camera cuts to ringside.

Bob Sinclair: Glasgow's Firhill Stadium is jam-packed tonight, and the atmosphere is electric as we edge ever closer to the playoffs! Good evening, everyone, and welcome to The League! As always, Bob Sinclair and Frankie Garnett at ringside, and we're starting tonight's show off with one of the matches that has serious playoff implications.

Frankie Garnett: People are thinking this may be Match of the Night; I'd be inclined to agree with them. Both of these men have a "do not back down" mentality to their ring approach, and I cannot wait to get it started!

Bob Sinclair: Then wait no more, Frankie. Let's go to Amelia Williams, and get the show underway!
 

Breaker (7-3) vs. Nuclear Templeton (6-4)
Slipknot's "Wait and Bleed" shatters the silence as the newly-crowned Beta Division leader walks towards the ring.

Amelia Williams: Ladies and gentlemen, this is our opening contest, scheduled for one fall! Coming down the aisle, weighing 251 pounds...Breaker!

Bob Sinclair: Breaker had the biggest win in his League career last week, this week is no cakewalk with perennial frontrunner Nuclear Templeton set to come out next.

Frankie Garnett: If he's not careful, he could see his lead vanish in the blink of an eye!

Billy Idol's "Shock to the System" hits as the crowd erupts in cheers.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Atlantic City, New Jersey, weighing 278 pounds...Nuclear Templeton!

Bob Sinclair: Coming in to tonight, Templeton is the wild card entrant to the playoffs. He can ill afford a loss here.

Frankie Garnett: With only three matches to go after tonight, you're not kidding. He needs to channel his temper and make it work for him to have a shot tonight.

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of eighteen minutes and forty seconds...Breaker!

Frankie Garnett: What a match to start us off tonight, Bob!

Bob Sinclair: You're not kidding, Frankie. The next match will be hard-pressed to follow this one, but it's got a different kind of drama. It falls to Diamond to single-handedly keep the entire Gamma Division alive in the hunt; a loss here and she's out of the divisional title hunt, as well as the loser of the Triumph-Arrows match later on. A win and she's still in it.

Frankie Garnett: The only help Diamond has is that she's on her home turf, where Sean isn't as big of a name. If there was ever a time where she needed the help, this would be it.

Bob Sinclair: Let's find out what happens. Amelia, take it away!
 

GAMMA DIVISION: Sean (7-3) vs. Diamond (4-6)
Black Sabbath's classic "Iron Man" hits the speakers to announce the entrance of the Gamma Division leader.

Amelia Williams: Our next contest is a Gamma Division contest scheduled for one fall! Coming down the aisle, from Charlotte, North Carolina, weighing 230 pounds...Sean!

Bob Sinclair: A win from Sean here gives him the tie-breaker over Breaker for the number one spot in the rankings thanks to what would be a 4-1 divisional record.

Frankie Garnett: Right now, I think he's more interested in making sure no one can take his division from him, Bob.

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

The opening lyric is enough to send the crowd into a cheering frenzy, as the lone woman in The League walks out with a confident smirk on her face.


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

Bob Sinclair: This crowd is solidly behind Diamond tonight, Frankie!

Frankie Garnett: She's not far from home; it doesn't shock me! I've got a feeling that she might pull it off tonight!

Frankie Garnett: And this crowd has erupted!

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, in seven minutes and ten seconds...Diamond!

Bob Sinclair: Diamond keeps the entire Gamma Division alive for another week, and closes the lead ever so slightly with that win!

Frankie Garnett: And look at her, Bob! She's leaving through the crowd and celebrating with them; the pubs are going to be busy tonight!
 

SGRaaize (4-6) vs. The British Warrior (6-4)
The Portugese national anthem hits, drawing a fervent chorus of boos from the crowd.

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

Bob Sinclair: For Raaize, it's simple. A win keeps his extremely slim Beta Division hopes alive. A loss drops him out of the race, and all but eliminated from the wild card hunt.

Frankie Garnett: I'm sorry, but the guy has no chance. Not against tonight's opponent.

"Rule, Britannia!" hits the airwaves next, as the crowd gets to their feet and cheers quite loudly...though not without a smattering of jeers from the more patriotic Scots in attendance.

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

Bob Sinclair: Warrior's guaranteed to walk out of Scotland as the Alpha Division leader, the question is by how much.

Frankie Garnett: The other question is how many people are going to be awake after his match, Bob. Guy's got less charisma than a slug.

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of nine minutes and twenty seconds...The British Warrior!

Bob Sinclair: Warrior takes a one-match lead in the Alpha Division with that win, while Raaize is now mathematically eliminated from the Beta Division race. He still has a chance with the wild card—

Frankie Garnett: Not much of one. He needs some serious help to make it; he's all but eliminated as it is, Bob.
 

GAMMA DIVISION: Johnny Triumph (4-6) vs. Shawn Arrows (4-6)
Bob Sinclair: Speaking of, the loser of the next match will be in the same boat, despite Diamond's win earlier tonight. The winner moves to two matches out of the Gamma Division lead, the loser drops to three behind with three to go—a scenario that they are not likely going to be able to overcome.

Frankie Garnett: Enough talk, Bob. You yap more than a woman on the phone. Let's get to it already!

Megadeth's "Symphony of Destruction" hits the speakers as the Gamma Division's second-place man walks out.

Amelia Williams: Our next bout is scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring, from Des Moines, Iowa, weighing 228 pounds...Johnny Triumph!

Bob Sinclair: Johnny needs to really entertain the crowd here; a win with a lower entertainment value keeps him behind Diamond for the second-place tie-breaker.

Frankie Garnett: Wait, "entertainment value?"

Bob Sinclair: Fan approval rating.

Frankie Garnett: Ah, that makes sense.

The opening strains of Linkin Park's "Numb" break the silence to announce the entrance of the opponent.

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

Frankie Garnett: I just thought of something, Bob. What the hell is Arrows' finisher, anyway?

Bob Sinclair: The Arrow-Shot DDT, a flapjack/DDT combination. Why?

Frankie Garnett: Then why haven't we seen him use it?

Bob Sinclair: Honestly, I have no idea. Could be a size issue.

Will This Be It?
It's Still Locked In!

Frankie Garnett: Told ya.

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

Bob Sinclair: Triumph moves to one match under .500, and joins Diamond at 5-6 on the year.

Frankie Garnett: Meanwhile, Arrows looks rather livid in the ring. He dominated the match and got caught napping. He's not likely to take this very well, Bob!
 

FIRST BLOOD: Robbie Maynard (6-4) vs. The Phoenix (2-8)

Bob Sinclair: Another person not likely to take something well would be Nuclear Templeton, especially if Maynard pulls out a win tonight. A Maynard win gives him outright possession of the wild card position with three weeks to go.

Frankie Garnett: He's got Phoenix this week, right?

Bob Sinclair: Yes.

Frankie Garnett: Good. I've been looking forward all week to watching Phoenix get destroyed. New wild card holder coming up! Amelia, let's get it started!

The opening guitar riffs of Metallica's "Master of Puppets" hits the speakers as the first participant of the contest comes out.

Amelia Williams: The following contest is a First Blood match! Approaching the ring, from Liverpool, England, weighing 251 pounds...Robbie Maynard!

Bob Sinclair: Maynard seems to be the overwhelming favorite coming in to tonight's match. Honestly, I cannot doubt that to be the case.

Frankie Garnett: I expected stuff to be wrecked. Plain and simple.

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: Explain to me again why we have to deal with this guy?

Bob Sinclair: The solace, Frankie, is that you only have to deal with him for three more shows. Think of it that way.
