"The Sin and the Sentence" by Trivium blasts through the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota as XIII comes on the air! The stage explodes in a dizzy array of fireworks, highlighted by the castle-type design. Nikki Venus and Nate Nytro sit ringside for the contests, which are close to kicking off! Teo del Sol and Gemini Battle begin within the ring, already surrounded by two hundred light tubes!
TEO DEL SOL VS GEMINI BATTLE
200 LIGHT TUBES DEATHMATCH
200 LIGHT TUBES DEATHMATCH
Nikki Venus: This 200 light tube match is underway. Gemini Battle is fighting for his own soul. He wants to send Teo del Sol to Hell in his place.
Nate Nytro: That shit is whack. The craziest shit happens here at WCF.
Gemini rushes to the corner and grabs two light tubes and swings them around dramatically and skillfully like a fucking ninja would swing around bowstaffs. Teo does the same but accidentally smashes them together causing them to crash in his face, sending shrapnel towards Gemini who tries to dodge the flying glass.
Nate Nytro: That’s two down, 198 to go.
Geminin gets rid of another two by smashing one after another on the back of the distracted Teo del Sol before tossing him harshly into the corner by the collar of his jacket, his back crushing against another stack of light tubes placed there. The ring is already a bed of shredded glass and the match has just begun. Gemini runs towards Teo with a shoulder block and delivers a hard shot to the midsection of Sol. He drops to the mat and Gemini climbs up to the top to set up for a moonsault.
Nate Nytro: Good sequence of moves from Gemini! He’s beating Teo like he’s got a grudge to settle.
Nikki Venus: That’s the whole point of-
Nate Nytro: Moonsault!
As he flips through the air Teo reaches out desperately and hits an upside down Gemini Battle in the stomach with a baseball swing of a light tube! The thing not only stops Gemini’s momentum, but he crashes like a heap as the tube explodes across his stomach! Gemini writhes in pain as Teo lifts him to his feet. He throws Gemini hard face first into the remaining corner of the ring with standing light tubes face first! Gemini’s head bobbles as it collides with the ring post, but Gemini stops himself short right before connecting with the glass!
Nate Nytro: I’m surprised there aren’t little birds flying around his head after that!
But then Teo comes rushing forwards with a stinger splash in the corner landing on Gemini’s back and crushing the tubes into his face and chest! Shards of glass and powder fly throughout the ring and the audience roars in approval!
Crowd: Thir-Teen! Thir-Teen! Thir-Teen!
Teo dives out of the way as soon as he can, but damage has been done to him too.
Nikki Venus: Both men are bloodier than I was when I woke up.
Nate Nytro: No one wants to hear about your period.
Nikki Venus: Oh, no. It wasn’t my blood I was covered in…
Nate Nytro: What the f….
Teo gets to his feet first as Gemini pulls a chunk of glass out of his arm and tosses it at the standing luchador. Teo looks down at his opponent with a look of remorse in his eyes. Gemini takes the moment of hesitation to lunge at his knees and take him down with a terrible looking tackle. Teo lands on his back and rolls out of the bottom of the ring, trying to keep momentum on his side!
Nate Nytro: You gotta go for the kill at XII buddy!
Nikki Venus: Just like in the bedroom.
Nate: Nikki, noone’s going to listen, just-
Gemini runs and delivers a suicide dive over the top rope! Showing no regard for his own safety, Gemini hurls himself at Teo! The momentum is enough to throw himself into the third row! Teo holds his arms out to keep Gemini from landing in the audience, and gets blasted against the guard rail as a result! Gemini gets to his feet and panders to the crowd for the first time in over a year and he is pleased.
Despite the positive reaction, a few fans in the front row are calling for Teo to get up, the same fans Teo saved from taking a crossbody as well.
Gemini finds another stack of light tubes and drags them towards him. He has a wild look in his eyes, spurned on by the cheers of the crowd and even more so by the few who insist on cheering for Teo.
Teo begins to get to his feet and is met with a vicious swing of a light tube!
Teo drops hard to the floor but tries again to get up again…only to be met with another vicious blow.
Nikki Venus: You want me to talk about the match? Fine! Last year at War these two men had a hellacious match to be named the King of All Media. Teo del Sol was known as Teddy Blaze then and he was relentless in his assault towards the former Wolrd Champion. Gemini Battle persevered and retained his TV Championship last night, but ultimately lost the title of King of all Media. They also put guest announcer Howard Stern through a table.
In the midst of the history lesson, Gemini relentlessly smashes Teo with light bulbs! The effect seems to backfire though, the crowd is losing support for Gemini with each smash, feeling sympathetic for Teo who seems to be willing to take the punishment!
Nate Nytro: Gemini Battle is not the type of man who forgets a beating like that. He returned from the pits of hell to get revenge on David Sanchez and did so by eliminating him from War and ruining his chances at winning the world Title. Now he’s got his eyes set on Teo del Sol.
Nikki Venus: there’s only one problem with his plan though…
Gemini continues to deliver swift hard blows with light tube after light tube to Teo’s chest and head, but the Texican Luchador continues to get back to an upright position every time. The crowd is beginning to turn on Gemini as he refuses to relent his advantage over the fallen champion.
Nate Nytro: What’s wrong with his plan?
Nikki Venus: Gemini wants revenge on Teddy Blaze, not Teo del Sol.
Nate Nytro: Aren’t they the same person?
Nikki Venus: Yes and no. they’re the same person like I’m the same person that murdered that trio of gigolos after I had my way with them last night. Hence waking up in a pool of someone else’s blood.
Nate Nytro: I feel like we need to talk about that later, but for now I think you’re right. Gemini is starting to slow down his assault.
Gemini yells at Teo “STAY DOWN! WHY WON’T YOU STAY DOWN!?!?”
Teo screams back “IT’S OK. I’M READY TO PAY FOR MY SINS”
Gemini grabs the last light tube remaining and holds it high over his head. Teo closes his eyes and puts his arms behind his back like a samurai ready to accept his fate after losing a battle. The Gemini hesitates.
Nikki Venus: I think he’s realizing what he’s done. He’s already sentenced Teo del Sol to eternity in Hell but he’s realized he’s made a mistake. This final blow could send him there and Gemini doesn’t want to do it any longer.
Gemini drops the light tube and looks at his bloody hands mouthing ‘what have I done?”
Meanwhile Teo opens his eyes and sees the look on Gemini’s face. His eyes roll, the punishment showing on his face
Nate Nytro: I don’t think he knows where he is!
Barely alive, moving only on instinct, he lunges forward and grabs Gemini! Gemini stumbles backwards and Teo lands on top of him! The referee is in perfect position, slapping his hand on the glass covered ground for the 1…2…3!!!!
Nikki Venus: HE DID IT!
Nate Nytro: Teo gets the win again!
Gemini screams at Teo “WHAT HAVE YOU DONE YOU FOOL! THAT WAS MY CHANCE!”
When a thunderous rumble comes from backstage. Flames arise from the entrance way and burns a stagehand who runs off aflame.
Nikki Venus: I think I know who that is…
Nate Nytro: Who… who is it?
A chair rolls through the flames and a man with long black hair sits on it leading it with a finger and speaking through a machine.
Nate Nytro: Oh my god! That’s…
Nate Nytro: It can’t be… But it is!
Gemini moves back, ready for the ultimate evil to walk through the curtain, Teo braces himself, regaining some of his senses… An ominous figure appears from the flames…
Nikki Venus: It’s HOWARD STERN!
Nate Nytro: WHAT THE FUCK?
Howard Stern speaks through his speak and spell sounding robot.
Howard Stern: Last year you STOLE the title of King of all Media from me. That was MY Title. I’m here to take it back. Anyone can be bought, and I bought your soul from the devil, Gemini. If you want it back all you need to do is rid the world of Teo del Sol, send him to hell and give ME the title of King of All Media! The choice is yours.
Gemini looks at Teo and at the shard of glass he has in his hand. Teo simply looks at Gemini and nods his head in approval as he raises his head to expose his neck, willing to give up his own life for the soul of a respected enemy.
Gemini drops the glass.
Howard Stern: suit yourself. I’ll have to take it. ATTACK!
Robin and Artie Lange emerge from the crowd and attack Gemini and Teo. They deliver boots to the two men who finally escape their attack. Gemini grabs Robin, and then Teo grabs Artie and they start to gain the upper hand themselves. Finally, with both of them in opposite corners of the ring Gemini turns and looks at Teo. Both nod and they throw Robin and Artie into each other. The collide chest first into each other and they both explode!
Metal pieces fly all over the ring and all that is left are mechanical heads of Robin yelling “Oh howard… Oh Howard…” and Arties yelling “Fucking jews! Fuck them all!” as their eyes fade and they silence.
Howard Stern: So you bested Mecha Artie and Robin. But you’re not prepared for this.
He pushes a button but nothing happens.
Howard Stern: Damned machine, I thought it was flawless.
Voice: Looking for this?
Howard turns around and sees “the Livewire” Grayson Pierce holding the mechanical head of Howard stern by the hair.
Howard Stern: MY MECHA STERN!!! HOW DID YOU…
Nate Nytro: Wait, I thought that Grayson Pierce and Gemini Battle were the same person? I think they are? How is this possible?
Nikki Venus: If you were following the terrible story that was being told in their lives it turned out that Gemini had taken over someone else’s body the last time he became human and Grayson was left alive. Rumor had it that he and his wife Kat had taken Taylor Wright’s daughter and adopted her as their own. And THAT’S how Taylor Wright fits into the story.
Nate Nytro: This seems confusing.
Gemini and Teo walk down towards Howard Stern who sprays mist into Grayson’s eyes.
Howard Stern: I’ll be back! YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LAST OF ME!!!
He slowly turns around and exits the arena and the Three men allow him to do so. Teo’s music plays as he, Gemini and Grayson Pierce raise each other’s hands and the scene fades.
