Main Event: Doom/Ocho vs. Farthington/Niles vs. Kuroyama/Perfection
(CUT TO: The commentary table set up off the side of the stage, where Aaron, Terry, and Brian sit in anticipation of the main event.)
Creed: Well, gentlemen, Chain Reaction 11 has thus far been quite the event! We started with six tag teams of very volatile chemistry... and now we’re down to three, as we approach our main event!
Anderson: I still think it’s an absolute crime that Stephen Waltz had two very good opportunities to be in this match... but as is always the case, the haters gotta be holding my boy down!
Creed: In any case, I don’t think we can say that any team that performed tonight didn’t exist without some internal tension. As was the case in some of the previous matches, we witnessed a few all-out meltdowns! But right now, these remaining six competitors have to put all of their trust into their respective partners, as victory tonight will determine who moves on to face the Emerald City Champion, Perfection, at our next event!
McGinnis: And considering Perfection is involved in this match, the champion has the power to virtually write his own destiny.
Creed: Looks like the competitors are ready to go to the ring!
(FADE: To the ring, as Donal Bell stands with mic, ready to make the announcements.)
Donald Bell: Ladies and gentlemen... it is time for the MAIN EVENT!! The following contest is a six-man tag team triangle match set for one fall, and the members of the winning team will compete for the Emerald City Championship at the next IWF event!
(CUE UP: “What’s Up People” by Maximum the Hormone. SPOOKY DOOM dashes out of the entry-way to a strong positive reaction from the fans and dashes down to the ring.)
Donald Bell: Introducing first, hailing from Death Valley, California, and weighing in at one-hundred and ninety-five pounds... SPOOKY DOOM!!
Creed: The ever-enthusiastic Spooky Doom is the first man to the ring, looking energetic and confident! You’d barely know he competed earlier tonight by looking at him!
Anderson: Is this kid hooked on coke, or what? He’s like some hyperactive six-year-old brat guzzling down sugar! And here I thought he was supposed to be half zombie, or related to a dead guy, or something...
(CUE UP: “Final Battle” by Dr. Octoroc. LEYENDA DE OCHO steps out onto the rampway, posting his arms into the air like Link hoisting a piece of the Triforce, getting a BIG pop from the crowd, and then he starts down toward the ring at a full sprint.)
Donald Bell: And his partner, coming to us all the way from Chicago, Illinois, and weighing in at one-hundred and eighty-eight pounds... LEYENDA DE OCHO!!
Creed: But not to be outdone, here comes Spooky’s partner, the 8-Bit Legend Leyenda de Ocho! These two luchadores managed to coexist earlier tonight, but can they pull it off again?
McGinnis: Well, considering the combined weight of this team is easily under four hundred pounds, teamwork would have to be an asset at this point!
Anderson: Would you look at that Spooky Dork guy? What is he doing, trying to quiet the crowd down!?
Creed: Apparently, Spooky thinks himself the only one capable of being adored by the fans... but nevertheless, these people are behind Ocho tonight!
(CUE UP: “Lying From You” by Linkin Park. JOHNNY NILES comes out next, performing his straight-edge pose to get a cheer from the fans, and confidently comes down the rampway.)
Donald Bell: Introducing the next competitor... from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, weighing in at two-hundred and forty-six pounds... JOHNNY NILES!!
Creed: And now here comes Johnny Niles, fresh off of his first IWF victory over your own protege, Terry.
Anderson: Bah, don’t act so smug, A-C... this punk only made it this far because of that traitor, Jake Evans, stabbing Stephen in the back! This is to say nothing of the fact that Steph-O was clearly gassed after wrestling in TWO consecutive matches!
Creed: All the same, you can’t fault a man for making the best of his situation...
(CUE UP: “When the Going Gets Tough” by Billy Ocean. The fans jeer loudly as CECILWORTH J. FARTHINGTON steps out onto the rampway and walks to the ring, flanked by his team of sizably superior personal trainers, looking into the crowd with a smug and privileged look of disgust.)
Donald Bell: And his partner... coming to us all the way from Buckingham, United Kingdom, and weighing in at eleven stone... CECILWORTH JAY FARTHINGTON!!
Creed: The IWF loyal are giving no love to noble-born Englishman, Cecilworth Farthington! And they may hate him any more if he found a way to take that Emerald City Championship for himself!
McGinnis: He certainly seems like the sort that would make an athlete like Johnny Niles do the heavy lifting and slipping in at the last moment to claim the glory...
Anderson: Hang on a sec, ain’t that what Niles did earlier tonight? Don’t be so judgmental, McG! Farthington is simply a man who comes from a background where he always got what he wanted, so when it comes to being in the ring, he does whatever it takes to get what he wants!
(CUE UP: “Revolve” by the Melvins. KERRY KUROYAMA confidently steps out onto the rampway, pumping a fist and getting a loud hometown pop.)
Donald Bell: Introducing next... representing the city of Seattle, Washington, and weighing in at two-hundred and thirty two pounds... KERRY KUROYAMA!!
Creed: The hometown hero of the Emerald City comes out representing the third and final team in this main event! LISTEN to the reaction from these fans!
Anderson: Bah, these people would cheer on Quasimodo if they heard he was from this crappy town!
Creed: In any case, Kuroyama, the student of the Dojo, has dedicated himself to the mission of winning the Emerald City Title... but he might have a problem, given he’s tagging with the very man who carries that title!
(CUE UP: “Perfect Gentlemen” by Helloween. To a massive heated reaction, PERFECTION walks out onto the rampy, smiling arrogantly and proudly holding the IWF Emerald City Title over his head for all to see. Setting it on his shoulder, he confidently comes down the ramp to the ring, ignoring the insults hurled upon him by the fans.)
Donald Bell: And finally, his partner... hailing from Hollywood, California, and weighing in at two-hundred and twenty pounds... the IWF EMERALD CITY CHAMPION... PERFECTION!!
Creed: The fans are letting the champion hear it in full force, and with good reason, given his behavior earlier tonight!
Anderson: Yeah, but no matter how much they hate him, nobody can deny what James Witherhold has accomplished within IWF! Look at all he’s outlasted! Scott Douglas, Vizier ta Seti, that Rocko Daymon bum... no matter how you slice it, this guy’s been nothing short of PERFECT!
McGinnis: No doubt, the other five men involved in this match all have that on their mind. It will be interesting to see how Perfection participates in this match... will he use this opportunity to choose one of his two opponents at the next event, or will he throw his partner Kuroyama to the wolves?
(Perfection takes command of the ring as he steps inside, walking through the other five men as if they didn’t exist and posting up a couple of turnbuckles to show off his title, getting the fans to BOO loudly. Eventually, the music ends and he hands the belt to Donald on his way out of the ring. At this point, Tony Daniels begins to get things in order by separating the teams to their corners. Ocho, Niles, and Perfection end up on the apron while Spooky Doom, Farthington, and Kuroyama stand in a triangle, ready for the bell. Daniels gives the cue to the timekeeper.)
SFX: *DING! DING!*
Creed: There’s the bell to start the match -- and Perfection just dropped off the apron! Wait... now where’s he going!?
Anderson: I dunno, but it looks like anywhere but here!
(The heat in the Moss Bay Events center kicks up a few more degrees as the fans boo Perfection even louder. Ignoring the reaction, Perfection arrogantly recollects his title and begins heading up the rampway. He takes one last look to the men in the ring, taking smug satisfaction by the look on Kuroyaman’s face, as Kerry realizes he’s being left to fend for himself.)
Creed: I don’t believe it, the Emerald City Champion just picked up his belt and LEFT the ring... and left his partner to fight ALONE in this triple threat tag match!
Anderson: Well, clearly, he doesn’t need to get involved in this match! He’s going to beat whoever wins, regardless!
Creed: Hold on... looks like he’s coming THIS WAY!
Anderson: Oh, AWESOME!! Scoot over, Creed!
(We cut briefly over to the commentary table as Perfection pulls up a chair and puts on a headset, looking quite proud of himself.)
Creed: Uh, welcome to the broadcast table, Perfection... but wouldn’t you rather be in the ring?
Perfection: In the ring? Why, what on earth are you talking about, Creed?
Creed: Shouldn’t the Emerald City Champion be in the main event, representing this company?
Perfection: I DID represent this company, earlier tonight! Or did you already forget? I’ve fulfilled my contractual obligation, thank you very much, and I scarcely see a point in meddling with these inferior-minded losers...
Anderson: Sounds rational to me! PERFECTLY rational!
McGinnis: Ugh... I have a feeling this is going to be a miserable experience.
Creed: Back to the ring, all three men are looking this way, seemingly astonished to see the Emerald City Champion taking an spectator’s seat to this match! There is rage filling in the eyes of Kerry Kuroyama, stranded alone in the ring... and OH WAIT, Spooky Doom uses the opportunity to strike Kerry from behind!
McGinnis: Rocked the Seattle native with a running forearm to the back of the head! Kuroyama’s just going to have to get over it at press on at this point, because the odds are seriously stacked against him now!
(Spooky Doom continues hitting Kuroyama with repeated forearms strikes, knocking him back into the turnbuckle where he pummels him a few more times. Farthington stays out of the action for the time being, watching the two brawl from across the ring and waiting for an opportunity of his own to arise. Spooky, meanwhile, takes Kerry by the arm and attempts to go for the Irish Whip... but Kuroyama, with a nearly forty pound advantage, makes an easy reversal. The Doom Kid bounces HARD off the opposite turnbuckle, stumbling out and into the waiting arms of Kuroyama who hoists him up from around the waist and slams him down hard on the mat.)
Creed: GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB by Kuroyama off of the reversal! He hooks the legs for the cover!
Spooky kicks out! But if Kerry can keep that up, he might have a shot in this match!
Anderson: But he has NO shot against Perfection, either way!
Perfection: Couldn’t have said that better myself, Terry.
Creed: Here comes Farthington from behind as Kuroyama gets to his feet... but TOO LATE, as Kerry turns around in time before somebody can hit him from behind again!
(With his attempt at sneakery foiled, a flustered Cecilworth Farthington jumps right into the lock-up, but Kuroyama anticipates it, and slips around behind him for a waistlock. Kerry holds him in place for a moment to decide where to go next, but Farthington counters out of the hold with a snapmare before he can make a move. Cecilworth goes straight into a side headlock, but Kerry forces him back to his feet.)
Creed: Kuroyama and Farthington, struggling for dominance... Kerry is back to his feet, despite the headlock, and he tries to break out with the BACK SUPLEX -- but Cecilworth lands on his feet, and sweeps Kuroyama to the mat with a leg hook!
Anderson: You know that Cecilworth isn’t about to let Kerry beat him again, like he did at the last Chain Reaction!
McGinnis: You can definitely tell, based on Farthington’s form, that all of that training he’s accumulated across the nation is starting to pay off! Here he is now, taking Kuroyama’s arm and wrenching it between his legs in a classic armbar... working the limbs and slowing the tempo of this match!
Perfection: I admire the man’s gumption... but Farthington’s still a man who has to pay for his talents. I’m a man whose talents are a natural GIFT!
Creed: The tempo may not be slow for much longer, as Spooky Doom has made a recovery! Here he goes off the ropes... RUNNING DROPKICK to Cecilworth Farthington, breaking the armbar on Kuroyama! And Ocho is asking for the tag!
(The crowd cheers Spooky’s act, and he takes a moment to celebrate and try to pump them up. Then he sees Leyenda de Ocho reaching out and looking for a tag, and makes it. Ocho enters the ring by popping up to the top rope and diving in, bringing BOTH the recovering Kuroyama and Farthington back down to the mat. The crowd cheers even louder, and Spooky reacts with a frantic surprise.)
Creed: WOW!! DIVING CROSS BODY BLOCK onto both Kuroyama and Farthington as Leyenda de Ocho enters the ring coming off of the tag!
McGinnis: Neither Farthington nor Kuroyama had a chance to act against that! That was brilliant timing by Ocho!
Perfection: Pff... what a show-off...
Creed: Ocho looking for the pin on Farthington... but hang on... Spooky Doom, apparently ANGRY by the way the fans just reacted, is going to the top rope himself... but official Tony Daniels tells him to get back down the apron! Spooky ARGUING with the official now!
(Spooky stubbornly shakes his head as Daniels orders him back onto the apron, having tagged out. The fans boo his filibustering, but he continuously points to his chest, insisting that they should be cheering for him above all others. Meanwhile, Ocho, though looking annoyed at having his pin attempt interrupted, slips around behind Farthington as he rises back off the mat and runs up looking for the bulldog -- but Farthington pushes him off at the last moment, sending him stumbling into the ropes adjoining Spooky’s turnbuckle. The shaking of the ropes throws off Spooky’s balance, causing him to fall awkwardly off of the turnbuckle, head hitting the apron as he sprawls to the ringside floor with a splat.)
Anderson: HAHAHAHA!! OH MY GOD, WHAT AN IDIOT!!
Creed: There went SPOOKY!! Farthington threw Ocho into the ropes trying to break out of that bulldog attempt, and in doing so, Spooky Doom went right off the top rope! My God, did you see how his head SMACKED OFF THE APRON?!
Perfection: Well, idiot, when the referee tells you to get down, YOU GET DOWN!!
Anderson: All that needed was a cartoon side-effect and a Bob Saget voice over!
Creed: After a fall like that, Ocho might be alone in this match as well... which doesn’t spell well for his chances at victory as Farthington makes a tag to Johnny Niles! Niles into the ring, meeting Kuroyama with some stiff shots to the Pacific Blitzkrieg’s face! There’s a shot to the face of Ocho as well! Niles is hitting the ring like a house on fire!
(The crowd gets solidly behind Niles as he energetically takes to the ring, landing blows left and right between Kuroyama and Ocho. Ocho staggers back after one shot, giving Niles the opportunity to land a high knee lift that catches Kerry under the jaw and puts him stunned on his back. Niles quickly tries to wrap up the legs into a figure four, but Kuroyama recovers and kicks him off, knocking him back into Ocho.)
Creed: Johnny Niles going for the Figure Four, but perhaps a bit too early as Kerry Kuroyama kicks him off... and there’s Ocho waiting for him! Ocho bouncing up to the shoulders... and he ROLLS NILES TO THE MAT with the VICTORY ROLL!
Niles kicks out!
McGinnis: Johnny’s still fresh in this bout, so that’s not much of a surprise...
Perfection: Although seeing him lose this match in under ten seconds wouldn’t have been much of a surprise either. To me, anyway.
Anderson: HA! Good one, Jimmy! Can I call you Jimmy?
Perfection: Let’s just stick with “Champ” for right now.
Anderson: You got it, Champ!
Creed: Ocho and Niles, scrambling to their feet, and here comes Kuroyama to meet the first one back up head on! Ocho bouncing up -- ONTO KERRY’S SHOULDERS, and KUROYAMA gets thrown into NILES with the HURRICANRANA!! UNBELIEVABLE!!
(The fans pop loud at Ocho’s amazing two-in-one maneuver. As this is going on, Spooky Doom, apparently not dead, is recovering on the outside, coming to in time to see his tag partner yet again stealing the show. Ocho, feeding off the crowd, points again to the top rope and sets himself up on the top turnbuckle. Kerry gets to his feet first, and turns around in time as Ocho comes flying off the top.)
Creed: Here’s Leyenda de Ocho, trying to capitalize by COMING OFF THE TOP ROPE with the FRONT FLIPPING SENTON -- NO!! Kerry Kuroyama CATCHES HIM out of the air... readjusting by hooking the legs... GOOD GOD, and the Pacific Blitzkrieg JUST DRILLS the Cartridge Cruiser with a CRADLE PILEDRIVER!!
Anderson: That was bound to happen sooner or later, what with all that senseless hopping around like a flea...
Creed: Kuroyama going for the cover now, and he may have it!
NO! It gets broken up by Johnny Niles! Did I hear you just breath a sigh of relief there, Perfection?
Perfection: Are you kidding me? I could care less if that fool wins this match. Beating these other idiots shouldn’t be THAT much of a challenge...
McGinnis: Ocho took a lot of that impact to the head... right now, he could sure use an opportunity to tag out, but I’m not even sure Spooky Doom has completely recovered at this point!
(Spooky is weakly pulling himself back onto the apron, while in the ring, Niles remains in control of the match. Putting some hard shots into the side of Kuroyama’s head, he keeps the Pacific Blitzkrieg dazed as he leads him over to the corner and makes the tag to Farthington. Cecilworth takes to the ring and shoves Niles aside as he sizes up Kuroyama and pops him under the jaw with a stiff European uppercut.)
Creed: Cecilworth Farthington is back in the ring for Johnny Niles, acting a little annoyed with his partner!
Anderson: Well, it’s not like he did anything worthwhile! C-Worth is probably annoyed having to carry this whole thing by himself!
Perfection: Honestly, at this point, they could have had the same match with half the personnel!
Creed: Hey, let’s not forget that YOU were booked to compete in this match, but you backed out at the last minute to sit here with us! Back to the action now as Farthington hooks Kerry by the arm... and there’s the drop toe hold to put him to the mat! OH... and there’s a soccer kick to the head to prevent him from trying to get up!
(The fans jeer loudly as Farthington leers over Kuroyama, stomping him in various points around the body, and taking a few opportunities to taunt the disrespectful Americans in attendance. With Kuroyama lying hurt, Cecilworth turns his attention to Ocho as he slowly comes to recovering from the earlier piledriver.)
Creed: Farthington turning his attention back to Ocho now... he meets him with a kick to the gut! And THERE’S A DDT to drop him back to the mat! Ocho’s going to have a headache tomorrow! But here goes Farthington for the pin!
NO! Ocho just got the shoulder up!
McGinnis: Farthington and Niles have complete control of this match right now! Ocho keeps getting dropped on his head... and Kerry Kuroyama is not much worse for wear! Let’s not forget, he took a lot of the punishment in his own match earlier tonight... thanks mostly to the man seated with us right now!
Perfection: You’re welcome...
Creed: Farthington leaving Ocho on the mat as he goes back to Kuroyama... no, Kerry fighting back with shots to the mid-section! The Pacific Blitzkrieg, trying to rally... onto his feet and off the ropes... and the RUNNING KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS!! Farthington goes down!
(The fans POP as the hometown talent mounts a comeback. Across the ring, Ocho finds Spooky finally back on the apron, reaching out for the tag, which he makes. Spooky Doom hurries back into the ring, eager to make an impact, but runs right into a palm strike delivered by Kuroyama. Spooky Doom hits the mat instantly, and Kerry bends over to pick him up.)
Creed: Spooky Doom finally back into this match as Ocho tags out, but Kerry Kuroyama almost INSTANTLY puts him right down to the mat! Kuroyama has all the moment right now, picking Spooky Doom up... hooking the arms from behind... WHAT A TIGER SUPLEX!! HERE’S THE PIN!!
BROKEN UP by Johnny Niles, and Tony Daniels quickly orders him back to the apron!
McGinnis: Niles had to break that up in order to keep this match going, with his own partner still stunned on the mat after that knee strike! I don’t think anybody thought Spooky Doom was going to kick out of that one!
Perfection: I sure wasn’t thinking that...
Creed: Niles is back out of the ring, and Kuroyama has his attention back on Farthington, as Spooky Doom hasn’t moved since he was last drilled to the mat! Getting him to his feet now... but Cecilworth bites back with a RAKE of his fingers across the eyes, and scrambles to his corner to make a desperate tag out to Johnny Niles!
(Farthington yells derisively at his partner for an apparently ineptitude on his part, which Niles rebuffs with annoyance, but nevertheless takes to the ring meets Kerry Kuroyama into the lock-up. As they dance around the ring in a struggle for dominance, they happen to trample over the unmoving body of Spooky Doom, seemingly waking up the luchador. From his corner, Ocho is shaking his head. Niles finally comes out on top, slipping behind Kuroyama.)
Creed: Johnny Niles coming out of the collar-and-elbow hold into the rear waistlock... looking for the GERMAN SUPLEX here -- but Kuroyama BLOCKS IT! Kuroyama reverses and goes behind Niles!
McGinnis: A fairly even match-up between these two... but it finally looks as though Spooky Doom is coming to and seeing the action! I think he might need another moment to recuperate, but here comes in any case!
Anderson: Oh man, this is going to be great...
Creed: Kuroyama going for the Full Nelson hold here... and Niles COUNTERS with with the back elbow, knocking Kerry back -- and INTO SPOOKY DOOM as their HEADS COLLIDE!!
(Spooky flails back awkwardly and lands against the bottom turnbuckle of his own corner, yet again seemingly knocked out. In a position to make a move, Ocho tags himself in and hops the ropes to join the action. Kuroyama, meanwhile, bounces forward off of the impact from Spooky and straight into Niles, who is waiting with a front Russian Legsweep.)
Creed: OSIRIS’ JUDGMENT! Johnny Niles was in prime position to make that move! Now he’s trying to lock in the crossface, looking for the submission hold... but Leyenda de Ocho breaks it up with a DIVING ELBOW across the back before he could lock him into place!
Anderson: WHAT?! Where did that one come from!?
Creed: Tagged himself back in when it was obvious Spooky was rather ineffective on behalf of his team! Ocho with an opportunity to put some work on the two stronger men in this match!
Perfection: There’s something wrong about that, just hearing it said. You got the Pacific Blitzkrieg and the supposed Best in the World getting it handed to them by an insignificant luchadore?!
(Ocho wrangles Niles back to his feet and puts him into a double underhook hold, landing some STIFF knee strikes to the ribs to knock the wind out of him, before taking him down hard to the mat face first. From his place out on the apron, Cecilworth Farthington looks extremely. Meanwhile, in the opposite corner, Spooky Doom is once again coming to, and finds his partner in the ring. Leyenda de Ocho at this point sees Kerry Kuroyama getting back to his feet and dashes for the turnbuckle...)
Creed: Johnny Niles is on the mat, but Kerry Kuroyama is coming back to his feet... and here goes Leyende de Ocho to the corner... RIGHT TO THE TOP ROPE -- OH WOW, WHAT A MOONSAULT!!
Creed: Kuroyama went RIGHT TO THE MAT with OCHO ON TOP!! THE COVER...
THR -- NO!! It’s broken up by Cecilworth Farthington!
Anderson: Good save, C-Worth! Not like Niles was going to get to it any time soon!
Creed: Johnny Niles is just now getting back to his feet, and he immediately finds Cecilworth J. Farthington in his face giving him a mouthful!
Anderson: Hopefully letting Johnny know just how WORTHLESS of a partner he is in all of this!
Perfection: Clearly, Terry, ALL of these men are just as equally worthless.
Anderson: Does that include Spooky Doom?
Perfection: ...no, it doesn’t, Terry. Because you have to be a man to be worthless. And Spooky Doom isn’t a man.
Anderson: Did you know he has a famous uncle?
McGinnis: Ugh... can we please just stop talking about this guy already?
(Niles retorts to Farthington’s blatant disrespect, and the team members argue in the ring as Daniels fruitlessly orders Cecilworth back to the apron. The British highblood provokes his partner by blatantly shoving him, and Niles almost strikes back... but reels himself back in when the ref gets between them and physically forces Cecilworth back to the corner. Meanwhile, with the third man preoccupied, Ocho hones in on Kuroyama as he looks dazed and exhausted getting back up off of the mat and sees he has a golden opportunity.)
Creed: Hang on now... Ocho measuring up Kuroyama as he pushes himself up off the mat! The fans know what he’s thinking!
McGinnis: We could be seeing the ACTUALIZER right here!
Creed: Kerry rising up to the knee, completely unaware... and here goes Leyenda de Ocho for the SHINING WIZARD -- NO, WAIT!! SPOOKY DOOM JUST STAGGERED INTO THE WAY! WHAT THE HELL!? Ocho was in prime position to finish the match!
Perfection: Ugh... it’d be a disgrace to wrestle that idiot anyhow.
Creed: Ocho is telling Spooky to get the HELL out of his way, but Spooky Doom is REFUSING! I don’t think he realizes that Ocho tagged himself back into this match! Both of these remaining teams are beginning to fall apart at the seams!
(Leyenda de Ocho, angered by his partner’s meddling, comes nose to nose with Spooky Doom, and the crowd livens up to a potential face off between the luchadore rivals. Having finally put Farthington back onto the apron, Daniels now finds himself having to intervene in the growing drama within the other team, ordering Spooky Doom out. Spooky seems more stubborn, insisting that he is the legal man. The fans begin to jeer him, and he begins pointing to himself, frantically screaming with insistence that they should be cheering him on as the great hero. Finally having enough, Ocho clobbers Spooky Doom upside the head.)
Creed: OH WOW, LEYENDA DE OCHO just BITCHSLAPS SPOOKY DOOM!!
Anderson: YES!! You have NO IDEA how long I’ve been waiting for somebody to do that!
McGinnis: Ocho just struck his own partner, but Spooky Doom practically forced his hand, because no matter what, he just wouldn’t stop ARGUING with everybody! You don’t argue with the referee in that ring... otherwise, you get disqualified.
Creed: And Ocho isn’t about to let Spooky Doom ruin his shot at the Emerald City Championship!
Perfection: Although I would have preferred it, because there is NO WAY I am wrestling a match with that hooded moron Spooky Doom...
Creed: Ocho’s trying to force Spooky Doom to the ropes now... but wait, JOHNNY NILES locks KERRY KUROYAMA into the BUFFALO SLEEPER!!
McGinnis: BOA CONSTRICTOR!! Johnny Niles is going for the submission! And keep in mind, Kuroyama has competed through two entire matches this evening, and he barely has the strength to fight out of this!
Creed: This could be THE END right here! And yet, I can’t help but notice that Cecilworth Farthington looks none too pleased, even though his team is on the verge of moving on toward a title shot!
Perfection: He wouldn’t be pleased if he knew what was in store for him!
Creed: Kuroyama looks like he’s going under... but referee Tony Daniels is too preoccupied with the all out BRAWL forming between Ocho and Spooky Doom!
(Niles calls for the referee’s attention, but can’t seem to get through to him, while Kuroyama seems to go completely black. Not knowing what else to do, he looks to Farthington. Cecilworth nods and steps through the ropes, seemingly knowing what he must do... and shockingly, goes right toward Johnny and buries a boot into his temple.)
Creed: OH MY!! I thought Cecilworth Farthington was coming in to get Ocho and Spooky Doom out of the ring, or at the very least get the referee’s attention, but instead he just ATTACKED HIS OWN PARTNER!!
McGinnis: Not sure if I know the strategy in that! Whatever Cecilworth is doing now, it’s all just to feed his ego! And with Tony Daniels STILL trying to deal with getting Spooky out of the ring, he’s free to get away with whatever he wants!
Creed: Farthington bringing the dazed Niles to his feet now... HOOKS HIM... NAILS HIM WITH THE WORTHLESS!! Niles is OUT at the hands of the one man he was relying on to have his back! I don’t believe it!
(The fans JEER LOUDLY as Cecilworth J. Farthington smugly gets to his feet and dusts himself off, rather arrogantly playing up his actions. Fully aware of the situation, he deliberately claps his hands to simulate the sound of atag. Across the ring, the brawl between Ocho and Spooky Doom escalates to the two of them spilling over the top rope to the outside. Farthington calls over the referee’s attention as he drags Kuroyama’s unconscious body to the middle of the ring. Daniels questions his legality, but Farthington cunningly convinces him a tag was made as he again simulates the slapping sound.)
Creed: It all makes sense now! Farthington took out Niles because he wanted the glory of the win to himself! He was simply JEALOUS of Johnny Niles!
McGinnis: A tag wasn’t made, but Cecilworth J. Farthington found a way around that! I can’t believe the official fell for that one!
Anderson: Hey... gotta admire a man who does whatever he takes to get what he wants. Even the guy who throws his own partner under the bus. That takes some guts!
Creed: Ocho is out of the ring... Kuroyama is DEFENSELESS... and Daniels is down to make this three count that nobody can save! THIS COULD BE IT!!
THREE -- NO WAIT, KUROYAMA KICKED OUT!! KERRY KUROYAMA GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!
(Farthington rises off the mat in sheer disbelief. The crowd picks up into a “KER-RY!!” chant, much to the noble-born’s chagrin. Outside the ring, Leyenda de Ocho has come out on top of the brawl, and turns his attention back to the action happening between the ropes, seeing Farthington almost frantically getting Kuroyama back to his feet, throwing glances at Johnny Niles stirring on the mat.)
Creed: Cecilworth Farthington KNOWS he has to finish this off before Johnny Niles wakes up, or he’ll be in trouble! He’s got Kerry up... hooking him around the head and the leg to finish things with another WORTHLESS -- BUT WAIT!! Kerry GRABS THE TIGHTS!
McGinnis: Kuroyama REFUSES to give up! He’s locking an arm, and pulls out... Cecilworth gets turned around!
Anderson: C’mon, C-Worth!
Creed: Kuroyama transitioning to the Pumphandle Hold, and HE LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE KUROYAMA DRIVER -- but Farthington STALLING!! Kerry can’t lift him UP the entire way!
McGinnis: He’s just got no more gas left in the tank! He’s been wrestling for too long!
Perfection: A complete amateur...
Creed: Oh give it a rest, JIMMY... you deliberately put him in that situation!
(Cecilworth Farthington is stuck in a perpetual limbo as he struggles to fight out of Kuroyama’s grip, and Kerry likewise struggles to hoist his lower end up over the shoulder in order to complete the Emerald Flowsion. At this exact moment, Johnny Niles, looking dazed but alive, begins pushing himself off the mat, and Ocho slides back into the ring. Leyenda de Ocho looks between all three men and suddenly sees everything come together...)
Creed: Niles almost up now... but wait, Ocho’s back in the ring! Here comes Ocho -- SHINING WIZARD ON NILES!!! JOHNNY NILES DIDN’T HAVE A SECOND TO DEFEND HIMSELF!! He’s going for the ACTUALIZER!!
Anderson: What the HELL?!
Creed: Ocho off the ropes... CORKSCREW LIONSAULT ONTO FARTHINGTON AND KUROYAMA!! KERRY’S ON THE MAT WITH TWO MEN ON TOP OF HIM, and DANIELS MAKES THE COVER!!
THREE!!! ITS’ OVER!!
SFX: *DING! DING! DING!*
(CUE UP: “Final Battle” by Dr. Octoroc. Cecilworth Farthington and Leyenda de Ocho roll off of each other, Farthington looking rather astonished.)
Donald Bell: Ladies and gentlemen... HERE are your winners...
LEYENDA DE OCHO and SPOOKY DOOM!!
Creed: Leyenda de Ocho has DONE IT for his team! He was the man on top of the pile, and therefore, he earned the pinfall!
Anderson: WHAT!? That TOTALLY should have gone to C-Worth! After all, if it weren’t for his added weight, they wouldn’t have even kept the unstoppable freakin’ TERMINATOR that is Kerry Kuroyama from kicking out yet again!
McGinnis: Well, given how much he’s gone through over the course of the night, you can’t really be surprised that he was just too exhausted and worn out to be able to get his shoulders off the mat with the weight of two men pressing down on his chest.
Creed: In any case, a heroic effort on the part of Kerry Kuroyama, and all he had to overcome tonight... but you have to hand it to Leyenda de Ocho, for his ability to read the situation and finish off this match in a strong way! Especially considering the trouble he was being given by his tag partner in this match!
Perfection: And now... I have to fight the two of them. And to be PERFECTLY honest... that insults me.
Creed: You had the chance to compete in this match, Perfection... but you decided to sit here, so if I were you, I wouldn’t be complaining!
McGinnis: Some mention should also go to Niles and Farthington, who also put up quite the fight... and you almost have to wonder, if Cecilworth’s ego hadn’t gotten to him, if the two of them could have managed to win this one working together.
Creed: Cecilworth, meanwhile, seems to be arguing his case to the referee, while Leyenda de Ocho celebrates his victory! Farthington still thinks he should have won this match! But here comes Niles from behind him... ESS-GEE-ENN!! SAY GOOD NIGHT, CECILWORTH!!
(Dropping his traitorous partner with the Fireman’s Stunner, Niles salutes his partner a final time before giving Ocho a respectful and congratulatory fist bump and leaving the ring. Kuroyama, looking banged up but still on his feet, likewise gives the victor his due respect and makes his own exit, throwing a very threatening glance toward Perfection’s direction as he passes by the commentary table on his way back up the rampway. Farthington’s trainers, meanwhile, pull him from the ring and assist him getting back to the locker room. Passing them by, the newly appointed IWF Commissioner NATHAN FEAR, with his security enforcer IVAN DALKICHEV, make their way down to the ring.)
Perfection: That’s my cue, gentlemen... thank you for having me.
Anderson: Any time, Champ! Hey, you want to hang out sometime? Can I call you?
Perfection: Why don’t I call you?
Anderson: Sounds great!
(Perfection puts down the headset and makes his way down to the ring as well, where Fear, Dalkichev, and Ocho stand waiting.)
Anderson: Man, isn’t he awesome?
Creed: ...whatever you say, Terry. Looks like we’re about to get a word from the new IWF Commissioner Nathan Fear before the end of the broadcast. Perfection is entering the ring now, the IWF Emerald City Title proudly hanging from his shoulder, standing face to face with one of the men who will face him at the next IWF event!
(Fear, with Dalkichev hovering over his shoulder to keep the peace, stands between Perfection and Ocho as they stare daggers into each other. Fear motions for the music to cut and raises a microphone with his voice going through the PA.)
Nathan Fear: Ladies and gentlemen... I am pleased to present to you the next great IWF main event...
(He motions to Perfection, standing with the title.)
Nathan Fear: Representing the prestige of the city of Seattle... the IWF Emerald City Champion PERFECTION...
(Fear motions next to Ocho.)
Nathan Fear: Valiantly defending his title in a triple threat match-up, against the Cartridge Cruiser... LEYENDA DE OCHO...
Nathan Fear: As well as...
(He looks around, realizing there isn’t a third man to fill out this triple threat match. At this point, he finally notices Ocho’s tag partner, weakly trying to drag himself back into the ring. Suddenly remembering him, Fear visibly rolls his eyes.)
Nathan Fear: ...Spooky Doom...
(As he finally gets back into the ring, the official Tony Daniels helps the luchador back to his feet and raises his arm to declare him as a winner of the match. Surprisingly, though, Spooky rip his hand away and shooves the referee to the side, eliciting more jeers from the crowd.)
Anderson: Come on, people! Show him some love! His uncle is famous!
McGinnis: Oh, Terry... give it a rest.
(Enraged by the reaction from the crowd, Spooky Doom stomps up and down the ring, throwing a tantrum and pointing at his chest over and over again. Tired of his antics, Fear glances over his shoulder and cocks his head slightly... sending Ivan into motion. Dalkichev moves in on Spooky Doom... the much smaller luchadore attempting to leap out of the ring, but being snagged at the last minute by the Russian’s surprisingly quick grasp.)
Creed: Oh boy... THIS could get ugly!
(Spooky squirms in the giant’s grip, until a clubbing left hand by the giant knocks him limp. Quite effortlessly, Dalkichev scoops him up and DRILLS HIM on the mat. The crowd “OOOHS” in astonishment at the sight of Spooky Doom’s head being buried into the canvas. Then, as one takes out the trash in a quite routine and tedious manner, Ivan scrapes the pest off of the canvas and gorilla presses him over the ropes and to the ringside floor. A medical team drags what’s left of Spooky Doom back to the backstage area as Dalkichev takes his place once again behind Fear.)
Nathan Fear: Thank you, Ivan...
(Fear turns his attention back to the fans and the camera, acting as though nothing had just happened.)
Nathan Fear: So as I was saying... presenting the main event at our IWF event... PERFECTION versus LEYENDA DE OCHO... one on one... for the IWF EMERALD CITY CHAMPIONSHIP!
Nathan Fear: Gentlemen, I hope the two of you are ready... because a NEW season of greatness is coming to IWF, and it begins with you! Good evening... and good luck.
(CUE UP: “Take the Power Back” by Rage Against the Machine. Fear exits the ring with Dalkichev taking up the rear. With the music pumping and the crowd cheering, Perfection and Leyenda de Ocho stand face to face in the center of the ring, the champion hoisting the IWF Emerald City Title high over his head.)
Creed: You can see it for yourselves, ladies and gentlemen! The new season of IWF begins with the Emerald City Champion, PERFECTION, and the number one contender, LEYENDA DE OCHO!!
Anderson: Perfection will triumph! Just you wait!
Creed: Unfortunately, we’ll be forced to wait for that match-up to take place... but until then, ladies and gentlemen, we hope you enjoyed Chain Reaction 11! Speaking for Brian McGinnis and Terry “The Idol” Anderson... this is Aaron Creed, signing off, and we WILL see you again!
