(FADE-IN: The inside of the rowdy Agora Theater in Cleveland. The fans are buzzing about the events of the past few segments, including Jake Shades humiliation and the appearance of Suicide. The camera pans around the arena a bit showing many of the fans in attendance. CUE-UP: "Wicker Man" by Iron Maiden. CUT-TO: The locker room entrance. The crowd gives a decent pop as Nemesis comes down to the ring, dressed in his wrestling attire and a white "GLCW" T-shirt. He does the old school, classic high-five deal, coming down the ramp, making sure to give high-fives to all the little NEMES-ites. He climbs into the ring and grabs a mic)

NEMESIS: "Ladies and gentlemen. Are you having a great time so far? (cheers) Well, good. So am I! (more cheers) But my fun won't be until a bit later on. Cannonball Kidd and I will square off in a match, where hopefully I can get my first win in the GLCW, right here in front of all of you in Cleveland! (cheap hometown pop) Ya know, it is really a privilege to be here in Great Lakes Championship Wrestling. I mean, just take a look at the last show, Massive Assault. An amazing show with Detroit Street Fights, Best 2 out of 3 falls, and the crowning of a new GLCW Great Lakes Heavyweight Champion in Maelstrom. There was even an incredible match up between Jean Rabesque and Sean Edmunds, two fantastically talented athletes ending with Edmunds tapping out to Rabesque. That right there is easily a "Match of the Year" contender. It's matches like that one that make me realize just how lucky I am to be HERE in CLEVELAND to perform in front of all of YOU! (crowd pops) Tonight, right here in this very ring, I Nemesis, PROMISE a win for all of you. Every paying ticket holder, every popcorn guy, every security guard, every janitor, and EVERYONE sitting at home... my match tonight... my VICTORY tonight is ALL for ALL of YOU! You are why I do this. YOU are why I put my health, my career, MY LIFE on the line, day in and day out. YOU are why I train, YOU are ALL my reasons for this. So tonight, I ask that you sit back, relax, and enjoy one man's quest to put on a spectacle that is so much more than simple entertainment. This match, this win... will provide you a story with a happy ending. And that ending will lead to the Great Lakes Title. Cannonball... You get ready... these people want a SHOW! And I am in NO mood to disappoint! Cannonball, buddy... THE WRATH AWAITS!"

(Nemesis holds the "Wrath" gesture high above his head as he mounts the turnbuckle. The crowd, while not knowing him very well, gives him an encouraging pop as he flashes a toothy smile. Nemesis steps off the turnbuckle, and shakes his head slightly while he smiles to the crowd. He rolls out of the ring, and heads back up the ramp.)

TONY ROSS: "I tell you what, it's great to see that Nemesis has his act together and he realizes who pays the bills around here and who deserves respect, the fans!"

JAKE SHADES: "Oh give me a break, if I hear any more of that weak-kneed B.S. I'll puke all over this table! Guys like Nemesis make me sick, they're more worried about what these plebians in the crowd think instead of beating their opponent! Guys like him will always be doomed to failure while guys like Manson and Anarky will always be on top!"

T.R.: "Then why isn't Manson on top right now?"

J.S.: "He is in my eyes, and that's all that matters!"

T.R.: "Oh, of course, all-knowing one. Let's take it up to Matt for our next match!"

(CUT-TO: Matt Faley standing at mid-ring)

MATT FALEY: "Ladies and gentlemen, in our next match, coming to the ring," (CUE-UP: "Streamline" by System of a Down) "From Queens, New York, weighing in at 260lbs., RYCHARD ISAAC!!"

(The crowd cheers as Isaac walks to the ring, wearing red tights)

M.F.: "And his opponent," (CUE-UP: "Man That You Fear" by Marilyn Manson) "From Hartford, Connecticut, weighing in at 239lbs., ANARKY!!"

(Anarky gets a huge reaction, mostly boos, as he emerges from the curtain, wearing a torn leather jacket with the anarchy symbol spray painted on the back, with long blue and black tights. Anarky gives a cocky smile to the crowd, soaking up the big reaction. He climbs into the ring and stares a hole through Isaac)

T.R.: "Well, this will be our first in-ring look at Anarky here in GLCW, after his heinous attack on Maelstrom last week at Massive Assault after his title win!"

J.S.: "Finally, a real man in GLCW! It took some brass ones to do what Anarky did, walk right into the ring after Maelstrom won the belt and punked his ass out! I was laughing for days after that one! I'm still laughing!"

T.R.: "That's funny, a few minutes ago you were almost crying!"

R.W.: "I'm looking forward to seeing if Anarky is showing any rust, since he's had a break from the ring. But when he's on top of his game, he's one of the best."

J.S.: "THE best...next to Manson of course."

T.R.: "Not much is known about Rychard Isaac, other than that he is from Queens, New York and is pretty much a rookie. Let's see how Anarky handles him. Oh boy, look out! Anarky just plowed into Isaac as he had his back turned stretching by the ropes! Anarky's mean streak is showing right through here as he lays the beating down on Isaac! Anarky bludgeons him with rights and lefts in the corner, and he knees him several times! He throws Isaac head first to the mat and then raises his arms, attracting the ire of the crowd!"

R.W.: "As cocky as Anarky is, he's always been able to back up what he says in the ring, seeing that he's held so many titles, including the FWF World Title!"

T.R.: "Isaac got up and attacked Anarky as he was taunting to the crowd, but Anarky grabbed his arm and did a judo throw on him! It's like he sensed that Isaac was coming! Anarky twists on that arm and then stomps on Isaac's face a few times! Ouch! Anarky holds the arm and grinds the boot on Isaac's face!"

J.S.: "Isaac's gonna come out of this match a lot uglier than he was before! And a lot more unconscious!"

T.R.: "Anarky seems to enjoy dishing out pain, and he has a big smile on his face as he twists that arm of Isaac! Isaac gets to his feet and Anarky just floors him with a clothesline!"

R.W.; "Maelstrom hasn't said too much about Anarky since that attack last week, so it will be interesting to see if Maelstrom will try and exact any revenge here tonight."

J.S.: "Maelstrom is dumb, but he ain't that dumb. He'll stay in the back and hide until Anarky leaves the arena."

T.R.: "Anarky hooks Isaac for a double underhook suplex executed perfectly! Anarky drags him right back to his feet and hits Isaac in the gut with a reverse crescent kick! And that just about knocked the wind out of Isaac! Anarky drops a flying fistdrop! He pulls Isaac up and whips him in for a big flying forearm! Anarly is just relentless here!"

J.S.: "Where did Malec find this bum Isaac? I thought the top competition was supposed to be in GLCW and this guy looks like he has all the skills of a crash test dummy!"

T.R.: "Or Anarky is just that good! Anarky drags Isaac to the corner and rams his head off the turnbuckle a few times before hitting a German suplex and Isaac landed right on his neck with tremendous force!! Wow!! Anarky signals this is the end, and he drags Isaac to his feet, grabs him, turns him over and hits the Chaos Breaker!! That snap reverse neckbreaker that puts an unbelievanble amount of torque on the neck!! 1......2......3!! Anarky beats Rychard Isaac with ease!"

R.W.: "This could be a sign of things to come from Anarky, but I really have to think that Maelstrom is going to be much more of a challenge to Anarky than Isaac."

J.S.: "Highly doubtful! When Anarky is on, nobody can beat him, and Anarky is always on so there's no chance in hell of him ever losing in GLCW! He's gonna make a bee-line for that belt Maelstrom has and he's gonna win it without breaking a sweat, that is if Manson doesn't get it back first!"

M.F.: "Ladies and gentlemen, you're winner, ANARKY!!"

(CUE-UP: "Man That You Fear" by Marilyn Manson)

T.R.: "Now Anarky is calling for the mic!"

ANARKY: "Is THIS the best you can do? This fallen martyr that lies below me... THIS IS NOTHING. Maelstrom, can you hear me? Sitting back there, pumping yourself up in the mirror, trying to look so desperately intimidating? Just waiting for a chance at me? WELL I'M RIGHT HERE, BUDDY. And when you want
to BRING IT, I'll ALWAYS BE READY. That goes for ANYONE. What about you, Rabesque? You think you're somebody. Best Wrestler in the World, right? Well
where was the best wrestler in the world when he got into the ring with me? ON HIS KNEES, JEAN. Begging me for mercy. Or Sean Edmunds, hm? Where have all
the contenders gone? Are you hiding from me? Do you pray to your God that he doesn't send me to get you? That he doesn't SEND ME TO END YOU. Because... if
THIS... (points to Isaac's body) ... is the BEST YOU CAN DO... well..."
"
T.R.: "Now wait a minute! Anarky picks him up and hits another Chaos Breaker! Was that completely necessary? Apparently Anarky wants to make a point here!"

J.S.: "Yeah, his point being watch out Maelstrom!"

T.R.: "OK fans, as Anarky leaves the ring, let's take it back to Lady V standing by with the Oak Street Beach Patrol!"

(CUT-TO: The locker room area. Lady V is standing next to "Hang Ten" Harold Haggler and "Aloha" Alex Hand. They are wearimg wetsuits and carrying surfboards)

LADY VERONICA: "I'm here tonight in Cleveland with two newcomers to Great Lakes Championship Wrestling, but not to the Great Lakes. From Chicago, they are the Oak Street Beach Patrol! Harold, Alex, welcome to Riptide!"

ALEX HAND: "HOOOT! HOOOT! HOOOT! HOOOT"

HAROLD HAGGLER: "It's great to be here, Lady V. Me and my partner in crime-and-rhyme here are way totally stoked. We spent today catching waves, breakin' hearts and maxin' out. And now we're here tonight to scope out the competition and to extend an invitation to alllll the members of the Oak Street Beach Patrol Party Posse to come hang out with us tonight after the show. We're stayin' out by the Interstate at the Days Inn and they got a SLAMMIN' kareoke bar there."

A.H.: "HOOOT! HOOOT! HOOOT! HOOOT!"

LADY V: "On top of partying, what else do you guys have in mind for us here?"

H.H.: "Simple, V as in Hot--"

A.H.: "HOOOT! HOOOT!"

H.H.: "We're here to do what we did in the world of surfing... and that's to become tag team champions. Myself and my bro-ski here-- we're gonna be large and in charge, just like Charles. We're young, sexy and surf champions. No one's gonna stop us. NO ONE. Surf's up, doods..." (Haggler walks off.)

A.H.: "HOOOOT! HOOOOT! HOOOOT! HOOOOT!"

LADY V: "Thanks guys. We'll be back with more Riptide from Cleveland after this message."
