BRANDON JACOBS: Welcome back everyone and it is time for a three way dance to determine the very first WFW World Tag Champions between The Original Show Stoppers, The Cameron Cruise Project, and the team of Jean Rabesque & Steve Johnson!! This is an elimination match and if you or your partner are pinned or submitted, your team is eliminated from the match. This will be contested under tornado rules, but you have to beat your opponent in the ring.
VIC WATERS: While I love the wild brawls, championships really should be decided by pinfalls inside of the squared circle when you have classy guys like Rabesque & Melton involved.
JONATHAN MARX: It does neutralize some of advantage the Original Shows Stoppers have with their knowledge of wild Southern brawling.
BRANDON JACOBS: Who do you guys like in this match?
VIC WATERS: The Cameron Cruise Project is by far the best tag team ever assembled with now two men who have been world heavyweight champions united as one despite their disagreements out of the ring. They are the Odd Couple of professional wrestling.
JONATHAN MARX: Being an old school kind of guy having watched some old NWA & WCW lately, I sort of favor the Original Show Stoppers or Rabesque & Johnson. You can only last so far when you have problems outside of the ring before it catches up with you inside of the ring. Rabesque & Johnson are two world class wrestlers and when that moment comes where an error is made because of miscommunication, they are going to step up and take the gold.
BRANDON JACOBS: We will have to see if that happens here tonight, lets send this one to the ring and get this match underway!

::Johnson cracks his knuckles as he steps through the curtain and he walks to the ring::
JONATHAN MARX: This is his second match of the night. He may be tired. We’ll find out if that will come into play.
VIC WATERS: He got lucky.
RING ANNOUNCER: And his partner ….
(CUEUP: ‘Shapes of Things’ by the Jeff Healy Band… the fans explode when Jean Rabesque steps through the curtain.)
RING ANNOUNCER: From Montreal, Quebec, Canada …. A MAN WHO HAS TRAVELED THE GLOBE WINNING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN EVERY LEAGUE HE HAS BEEN IN AND THE GREATEST TECHNICAL WRESTLER ALIVE TODAY…… JEAAAAAAAAAN RABBBBBBBBBBESSSSSSQUUUUUUUUEEEE!!!
::Rabesque walks briskly to the ring as fans try to touch him as he walks by.::
(CUEUP: "Draggin' The Line" by Tommy James)
RING ANNOUNCER: Introducing our second tag team coming out together, managed by the legendary "Manager of Champions" Calvin Carlton, the tag team of "The New American Stud" Brandon Mueller and "Fabulous" Frankie Fargo, THE ORIGINAL SHOWSTOPPERS!
::The Northeast crowd boos the Southern Tag Team as they walk down and turn of their nose at the crowd::
BRANDON JACOBS: WAIT A SECOND, HERE COMES THE CAMERON CRUISE PROJECT AND THEY HAVE ATTACKED THE ORIGINAL SHOWSTOPPERS BEFORE THEY HAVE EVEN GOTTEN INTO THE RING!
BRANDON JACOBS: The ref is calling for the bell to get this match underway.
JONATHAN MARX: I guess they simply didn’t want to wait any longer to get this one started.
BRANDON JACOBS: JOEY MELTON GRABS BRANDON MUELLER BY THE HAIR AND HE RAMS HIM INTO THE TURN POST HEAD FIRST! Frankie Fargo escapes into the ring to avoid Cameron Cruise and the pier six brawl is on. All five men in the ring are beating down Frankie Fargo!
VIC WATERS: This may be tornado rules, but this is remotely fair.
JONATHAN MARX: This is an elimination match to crown the very first WFW World Tag Champions and the winners will go down in the history books over on top of a very long list of champions. Every team wants to make history.
BRANDON JACOBS: Rabesque is holding the legs of Fargo and Cruise and Johnson are stomping away on the inner things as Melton is stretching in the corner,
JONATHAN MARX: Shouldn’t he have done his stretching before the match?
BRANDON JACOBS: Johnson bounces off the ropes…. He drops a leg right on the head of Fargo! NOW MELTON IS COMING IN AND HE ASKS EVERYONE TO STEP AWAY! He is calling for the figure four!
JONATHAN MARX: I never thought I’d have a chance to see Melton apply his patented figure four right here in WFW!
VIC WATERS: WOOOOOOOOO!
BRANDON JACOBS: Melton grabs the legs… HE HAS IT SYNCHED ON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!
VIC WATERS: When you are in this hold, you can’t last long.
BRANDON JACOBS: Brandon Meuller on the outside is starting to come to and he sees what is happening in the ring… CALVIN CARLTON IS COMING DOWN WITH HIS TENNIS RACKET AND HE THROWS IT TO MEULLER!
VIC WATERS: The great equalizer is in play!
JONATHAN MARX: Calvin Carlton must have been delayed signing all those copies of his new book about the Original Showstoppers.
BRANDON JACOBS: Johnson comes to stop Mueller… MUELLER HITS HIM OVER THE HEAD WITH THE RACKET! Mueller jumps onto the apron… RABESQUE CHARGES WITH A FOREARM SMASH BUT MEULLER DUCKS AND CLOCKS RABESQUE RIGHT IN THE BACK AND ENTERS THE RING! The ref is checking on Fargo to see if he wants to give up and things aren’t looking good…
VIC WATERS: Fargo just has to hold on a little bit longer.
JONATHAN MARX: But at what price? Fargo wants to be able to leave this match being able to walk…
BRANDON JACOBS: CRUISE IS STANDING IN THE WAY OF MEULLER… CRUISE LIFTS UP HIS HANDS TO BLOCK THE TENNIS RACKET SHOT BUT THEN MEULLER NAILS HIM RIGHT IN THE CROTCH!
JONATHAN MARX: There is Cruise’s reality check right there…
VIC WATERS: OOOH!
BRANDON JACOBS: MEULLER JUMPS ON TOP OF MELTON AND STARTS POUNDING HIM RIGHT IN THE HEAD WITH REPEATED TENNIS RACKET SHOTS AND MELTON IS FORCED TO BREAK THE HOLD!
JONATHAN MARX: We almost had our first elimination of the night.
VIC WATERS: Fargo is looking awfully wobbly on those legs though.
BRANDON JACOBS: RABESQUE RECOVERS AND FROM BEHIND LOCKS ON A RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP ON FRANKIE FARGO…. HE HITS IT! NOW HE GRABS THE LEGS LOCKS IN HIS VERSION OF THE FIGURE FOUR!
JONATHAN MARX: First Melton, now Rabesque and Meuller has no idea what is going on, He is still beating on Melton!
VIC WATERS: I think I heard a pop!
BRANDON JACOBS: FARGO IS TRYING TO GET TO THE ROPES BUT IT JUST OUT OF HIS REACH…. FARGO HAS FINALLY GIVEN UP!
RING ANNOUNCER: THE ORIGINAL SHOWSTOPPERS HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!
BRANDON JACOBS: We are down to two now!
JONATHAN MARX: Cruise grabs Brandon Meuller by the hair and pulls him off Melton and through the ropes to the ramp! Frankie Fargo has rolled out and Calvin is cursing at Cruise and Melton as they head to the back. .
VIC WATERS: Carlton left his tennis racket behind though, that may come into play later.
JONATHAN MARX: Melton already took a hell of a beating with that racket.
BRANDON JACOBS: JOHNSON HITS CRUISE IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A LARIAT!
VIC WATERS: Cruise was distracted by the commotion going on outside.
BRANDON JACOBS: Johnson locks his arms around Cruise’s stomach… OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! Cruise is out of it!
JONATHAN MARX: Shades of Copycat right there.
BRANDON JACOBS: Melton is up and he is infuriated with Rabesque for beating Fargo with a figure four after he was the one who originally locked it in on him.... RABESQUE PUSHES HIM! MELTON COMES BACK WITH A SERIES OF KNIFE EDGE CHOPS AND HE BACKS RABESQUE INTO THE CORNER!
JONATHAN MARX: Here we go!
VIC WATERS: Johnson is noticing what is happening to Rabesque and he is locking Cruise up in the ropes!
JONATHAN MARX: Normally, the ref would step in and undo this, but since this is tornado rules, it is anything goes. The only rule is the match has to happen in the ring.
BRANDON JACOBS: JOHNSON CLIPS MELTON’S LEG FROM BEHIND! Melton is trying to keep on his feet… RABESQUE KICKS MELTON IN THE STOMACH AND HITS HIM WITH THE DDT! Rabesque makes the cover and the ref goes down to count! 1----------------------------2---------------------------- KICKOUT!
VIC WATERS: He almost caught him there.
JONATHAN MARX: This match has been a whirlwind of action, Nobody has had a chance to catch their breath because of the way this started and it is a non traditional tag match without having to tag in and out. This has been a sheer sprint so far.
BRANDON JACOBS: Johnson and Rabesque move Melton to the center of the ring… Johnson comes over… HE SLAPS CRUISE ACROSS THE FACE AND HE TAUNTING HIM! Cruise is trying to escape but he is locked into those ropes…
JONATHAN MARX: Melton and Cruise have had their issues and they don’t always get along, but this right here is a war which makes him on this given day his brother.
VIC WATERS: Some of the best tag teams of alltime had troubles getting along together. Too much togetherness can be a bad thing.
BRANDON JACOBS: RABESQUE IS GOING TO THE CORNER AND HE CLIMBING UP TO THE MIDDLE ROPE… a stunned Melton is trying to move… RABESQUE FLIES OFF AND HE DROPS THE ELBOW RIGHT ON MELTON! Melton has been knocked out cold!
JONATHAN MARX: This is Rabesque setup for the figure four, how sweet would it be for him if he could lock this onto Melton and make him give up.
VIC WATERS: You’ve been in Rabesque’ figure four before…
JONATHAN MARX: And it sheer hell, it feels like your legs could snap like a twig at any time… love him or hate him, in the ring, Rabesque is a tough SOB who gets the job done.
BRANDON JACOBS: Johnson is coming over to help Rabesque in the beating… Johnson puts his shin right on the throat of Melton!
VIC WATERS: WAIT A SECOND, CALVIN CARLTON IS SNEAKING BACK DOWN … HE IS HELPING CRUISE UNDO THE ROPES!
JONATHAN MARX: Neither Rabesque or Johnson seem to notice either. They are too wrapped up in their work.
BRANDON JACOBS: RABESQUE GRABS THE LEGGS OF MELTON… AND HE LOCKS ON THE FIGURE FOUR! MELTON DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE CAN TAKE MUCH MORE OF THIS!
JONATHAN MARX: I don’t’ know how much more Melton has left in the tank. He got assaulted by the tennis racket earlier too by Meuller after he jumped his tag partner.
VIC WATERS: Carlton is really having trouble getting Cruise free, why is he helping him again?
JONATHAN MARX: Carlton hates both teams with a passion, but it was Rabesque who sent his team packing and cost him World Championship money. This is his chance at revenge.
BRANDON JACOBS: Melton is trying to reach to the ropes in hopes to break the hold… he almost HAS IT… JOHNSON STOMPS HIS HAND BEFORE HE CAN GET THERE AND NOW HE IS BLOCKING MELTON AT EVERY TURN!
JONATHAN MARX: Getting to the ropes wouldn’t force the rope break in this match, but when you have the ropes, you can use them to either reverse to hold or find a way to escape. Steve Johnson would love to walk out of here tonight with two title belts around his waist.
BRANDON JACOBS: MELTON LOOKS READY TO TAP! THIS COULD BE IT RIGHT HERE!
VIC WATERS: Melton is a tough and he’ll be damned to give Rabesque the satisfaction of beating him.
JONATHAN MARX: WAIT A SECOND, CARLTON FINALLY HAS CRUISE FREE!
BRANDON JACOBS: CRUISE PICKS UP THE TENNIS RACKET AND HE CLOCKS RABESQUE IN THE HEAD! JOHNSON RUNS AT CRUISE! Another tennis racket shot to the head! MELTON WISELY ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
JONATHAN MARX: Melton has taken a beaten. He needs time to recoup.
VIC WATERS: If Cruise wants this, he is going to have to step up right here for his team.
BRANDON JACOBS: CRUISE PICKS UP RABESQUE AND HE THROWS HIM THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE! Right now, it is just him and Steve Johnson!
JONATHAN MARX: Steve Johnson went through that grueling match with Jared Wells earlier. Rabesque had really picked up a lot of the slack in this match tonight, but now we will find out how much he still has left in the tank.
VIC WATERS: Jared Wells wanted to die with the BAD World Heavyweight Title and Johnson’s body is feeling all of that right now.
BRANDON JACOBS: Cruise picks Johnson up… CRUISE JUMPS UP FOR THE FRANKENCRUSIER BUT JOHNSON BLOCKS HIM AND HE POWERBOMBS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! Johnson goes down for the cover and the ref goes down to count! 1-----------------------------------------2---------------------------- KICKOUT!
Johnson almost had him!
JONATHAN MARX: He needs to go for a big move here and put this away while he can!
BRANDON JACOBS: STEVE JOHNSON IS HOLDING UP TWO FINGERS AND CALLING FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME (THE STROKE)! Steve Johnson goes to lock on the full nelson… CAMERON CRUISE UNLEASES AND ELBOW RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF STEVE JOHNSON!
VIC WATERS: Damn, it almost looked like he knocked out a tooth there on that.
JONATHAN MARX: Vicious elbow.
BRANDON JACOBS: Cruise reaches down….. HE CLOCKS HIM WITH ANOTHER TENNIS RACKET SHOT AND JOHNSON IS WEAK IN THE KNEES!
JONATHAN MARX: He hit him right on the side of the head! There are only so many of those shots you can take!
BRANDON JACOBS: CAMERON CRUISE HOOKS FOR HIS VERSION OF THE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP INVERTED…. HE HITS HIM WITH THE REALITY CHECK!
VIC WATERS: Johnson went face first into the mat, it looks like his nose is bleeding.
JONATHAN MARX: Come on Johnson!
BRANDON JACOBS: CRUSIE GOES DOWN TO MAKE THE COVER AND HE HOOKS THE LEG AND SOME TIGHTS! The ref goes down to count! 1------------------------------------------2------------------------------------------------3~!
RING ANNOUNCER: THE WINNER OF THE MATCH…. THE NEW WFW WORLD TAG CHAMPIONS, JOEY MELTON AND CAMERON CRUISE, THE CAMERON CRUISE PROJECT!
JONATHAN MARX: Cruise has done it! Melton is coming in to congratulate Cruise and he raises his hand for getting the job done.
VIC WATERS: Cameron Cruise really came through for his team tonight.
BRANDON JACOBS: But the night is not over yet, we still have one more match left to go, the WFW World Heavyweight Champion Anarky is going to put up his title in a Falls Count Anywhere in Foxboro Stadium match against Manson, Copycat, Felix Red, and Larry Tact with special referee, former WFW World Heavyweight Champion, Alex Wylde…. WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER THESE COMMERCIAL MESSAGES! STAY TUNED!
