Donovan Vs A-Rod
(FADEIN: the broadcaster's table where JEFF MAYES and VIC WATERS are sitting.)
MAYES: "We're back fans, and the big news so far tonight has been Nate Dakota capturing the #27 spot in the High Stakes Battle Royal."
WATERS: "And Rich Andrews on the other end getting stuck with #2! Poor guy is doomed!"
MAYES: "The main event is up next, with two more men, one of whom might beat Dakota's very high number...The other of which might be stuck with #1 and have to enter the ring with Andrews to start things off."
(MUSIC UP: "Imperial March" by John Williams as AARON RODDICK, wearing grey uniform pants with a grey uniform top, that reads "Empire" across the chest in black block letters. The rop is somewhat unbuttoned to show a white wifebeater underneath. On the back of the jersey is the number 13. The crowd boos loudly as RODDICK enters the ring.)
MAYES: "The normally Empire friendly fans here in LVW not really getting behind A-Rod here tonight."
WATERS: "I'm telling you, this guy hasn't earned it! If he ever makes good, maybe things will change."
(The music fades out as A-ROD paces around the ring, warming up, MUSIC UP: "Bat Country" by Avenged Sevenfold as the crowd pops HUGE as "COWBOY" JIMMY DONOVAN comes out from behind the curtain, black trunks with "Cowboy" in in gold on the seat. His black ring boots have an interlocking :"JD" in gold on them as he walks to the ring, high fiving the cheering fans, and catching one room key thrown at him.)
MAYES: "This crowd is going crazy as the Cowboy makes his way to the ring!"
WATERS: "Man, I wish I had a gimmick that got me this over with the women...I guess I need to be a time traveling porn star or ride bulls in my spare time."
MAYES: "Or not be 50 pounds overweight and a drunk...That might help also..."
HARWELL: "The following contest is set for ONE FALL and it is the MAIN EVENT of the evening...Introducing first, fighting out of the RED corner, he weighs in at 245 pounds, hailing from The Bronx, New York...Representing the Empire...AARON...A-ROD RODDICK!"
(Crowd boos! Some "Captain!" chants)
HARWELL: "And his opponent, fighting out of the BLUE corner, he weighs in at 242 pounds...Hailing from Enid, Oklahoma..."COWBOY!" JIMMY!!! DONOVAN!!!"
(Crowd pops HUGE for DONOVAN who raises his right arm in the air and gives a big smile to the crowd.)
HARWELL: "your referee for this contest is Tim Hathcock"
(Harwell walks out of the ring, Hathcock waits a beat and calls for the bell, starting the match.)
MAYES: "The two men circle and lock up...Donovan drives A-Rod back into the corner ...A clean break given by the Cowboy and the two men lock up again...Side headlock by Donovan who now is sent to the ropes...Shoulderblock by Donovan sends A-Rod Down...Donovan off the ropes again, A-Rod goes low and Donovan jumps over him...Donovan comes back...LEAPFROG by A-Rod...Donovan back...HIPTOSS by A-ROD..Donovan blocks and he goes for a hiptoss of his own, A-Rod blocks that... The rwo men disengage from each other and back away."
(Crowd gives a round of applause for the chain wrestling.)
MAYES: "They lock up again and Donovan gets control with a forearm to the chest and another, now a right hand sends A-Rod to the corner. Donovan with a kick to the stomach and now he whips A-Rod to the ropes...Clothesline by Donovan...DUCKED by A-Rod...A-Rod off the ropes...FLYING CLOTHESLINE! NO! DONOVAN DUCKS! A-Rod hits the mat hard!"
WATERS: "He just takes dumb chances at dumb times...This kid's got all the talent in the world, if only he'd get a clue!"
MAYES: "Donovan attacking A-Rod quickly with a series of stomps to the back A-Rod trying to get to his feet and taking a couple kicks to the ribs also...A-Rod sent to the corner...He staggers out RUNNING BULLDOG BY DONOVAN! HE COVERS!!! ONE...TWO...NO! A-Rod fights out. Donovan grabs him and elevates...BACK SUPLEX! NO! A-ROD LANDS ON HIS FEET!

Donovan escapes!"
(Crowd pops! "TWO!" yells)
WATERS: "Oh lord, he didn't hook the leg, the crazys on VFAN are going to be up in arms over this, just sloppy!"
MAYES: "A-Rod giving Hathcock a little speech about that count and he grabs Donovan...He drags Donovan over towards a corner...A-Rod grabs Donovan's legs...SLINGSHOTS DONOVAN INTO THE CORNER! DONOVAN LANDS ON THE SECOND ROPE! A-ROD GETS UP! CROSSBODY BY THE COWBOY! ONE...TWO...NO!!"
(A few boos, some "Two!" shouts)
WATERS: "And he just GAVE Donovan that move...Unreal...I wish Scotty was still on the Empire."
MAYES: "Donovan and A-Rod both up, Donovan with a right hand, blocks a right from A-Rod and now a series of rights from the Cowboy! A-Rod sent into the ropes and a DROPKICK on the button by Donovan! He covers! ONE....TWO...NO!"
WATERS: "Where is the manager?! There is nobody at ringside to give him leadership! I mean Joe didn't always make the right moves as of late, but I'd still want him out there!"
MAYES: "Donovan sends A-Rod into the corner...STINGER SPLASH! A-ROD JUST GOT SQUASHED...Donovan now pushes A-Rod into the corner...He's setting up A-Rod up top...DONOVAN WITH A SUPERPLEX OFF THE TOP!

(Crowd pops big! Loud "TWO" shouts)
WATERS: "How did he kick out of that?! What the hell?!"
MAYES: "Donovan has the heart of the champion! A-Rod gets Donovan up he hooks him for a suplex...Donovan blocks...Another attempt...Another block! DONOVAN WITH THE SUPLEX! Both me slow to get to their feet, but Donovan gets there first and starts hammerng away with rights into the face of A-Rod,..A-Rod rocked...Donovan with a knee to the gut doubles over A-Rod...RUNNING KNEE LIFT FLOORS A-ROD!"
(Crowd pops big! DONOVAN gives a thumbs down to the crowd, getting another pop!)

(Crowd pops! "TWO!" yells)
WATERS: "HE HAD HIM!!!! THAT WAS AN OUTRAGE!!!"
MAYES: "It was a close two! A-Rod can't believe it..."
WATERS: "Don't get rattled, these rubes and this punk ref are all against you, but I believe in ya!"
MAYES: "A-Rod scoops up Donovan and a slam...He's climbing the ropes."
WATERS: "Oh Gawd dammit, what is he thinking?!"
MAYES: "A-ROD WITH A MOONSAULT!! NOBODY HOME!!! A-ROD HIT HARD! Donovan gets to his feet, A-Rod trying to get to his feet...Donovan gets him up...He throws A-Rod over his shoulder...OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE!!! HE NAILED IT!! (Fans counting along!)ONE...TWO...THREE!!!!

HARWELL: "The time of the fall 8 minutes, 24 seconds...The winner of this contest by pinfall..."COWBOY!" JIMMY!!! DON! O! VAN!"
(Crowd continues cheering, A-ROD rolls out of the ring, clutching his stomach as he stumbles towards the Loser's Punch Bowl. He quickly grabs a ball and hands it to THE FLOOR who opens it.)
FLOOR: "A-Rod has drawn #6 for the High Stakes Battle Royal!"
(Crowd starts mockingly laughing at A-ROD who leans over the table, still holding his stomach.)
MAYES: "Not the best of draws for A-Rod...The Cowboy now up to the plate."
(DONOVAN pulls three balls out of the Winner's Punch Bowl and then gives the Hogan 'hand to ear' spot, he points at the one on the left, the crowd roars in disapproval...He throws it back into the punch bowl...He points to the one on the right, again getting loud boos, and throws it in the punch bowl...Finally he points to the middle one and gets a huge cheer!)
WATERS: "Must he be a ham about everything?! I wanna get out of here I got a date tonight."
MAYES: "Appointments at asian massage parlors aren't dates Vic"
WATERS: "Hey, you see things your way, I see them mine."
(DONOVAN holds his ball aloft, the crowd starts a loud "THIRTY!" chant before he finally cracks it open, then poker faced, shows his number to THE FLOOR)
FLOOR: "'Cowboy' Jimmy Donovan has draw...NUMBER 25 in the High Stakes Battle Royal!"
(Crowd pops for DONOVAN'S good draw, Donovan re-enters the ring and soaks in the cheers of the crowd.)
MAYES: "This crowd is loving it, the cowboy, has caught lucky and has a great chance at winning the LVW Title next week!"
WATERS: "Bah, nothing ever goes my way."
MAYES: "Wait a second! A-Rod from behind hammering on Donovan, the two men trading punches...Now here comes The Captain! Both members of the Empire working over Donovan, they send him to the ropes...FLAP-JACK!"
(Loud "Olvir!" chant.)
MAYES: "AND HERE COMES THE VIKING!!! OLVIR HITTING THE RING AND ATTACKING BOTH MEMBERS OF THE EMPIRE! And now here comes Nate Dakota, the man who drew best of all, he's swinging away at Olvir...J1D and Super Spade charging out, they are now fighting in the ring with the Empire, Oh lord, here comes that nut Hudgins...He's throwing down...Rich Andrews out here...It's broken down here!"

MAYES: "It's total chaos, just as it'll be next week, tune in next time, LVW will crown a champion next week...IN THE HIGH STAKES BATTLE ROYAL!"
(The entire roster keeps fighting each other in the ring, the crowd chanting "EL VEE DUB!" as we FADEOUT)
