A black screen emerges after the legal warnings. A ruckus crowd is faintly heard in the background, but a booming voice powers through.
"In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives."
The black screen slowly fades into a live shot of The Myth in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The small dance floor houses the ring, people surround the area. The balcony is nearly overflowing with people nearly on top of the ring itself. The stage houses a small setup, entry way of steel truss, backdrop with XIII in purple, purple lighting rigs. Directly across from the entry way, on the balcony, a roped off area with a big purple lined throne.
"The Sin and the Sentence" by Trivium hits the PA as the crowd goes into a frenzy. The light swirl as Corey walks out from the backstage area, jeans and a black hoodie because fuck suits. He makes his way toward the ring across the very short walkway it takes to get to the apron, and enters HIS ring! The crowd is mental at this point, absolutely bonkers. Corey puts his hand up to calm them down and allow him to speak.
Corey Black: Welcome everyone to the first XIII under WCF's new ownership!
Crowd goes nuts again.
Corey Black: I know you may find it odd that the guy that makes the matches still runs a show where he, again, makes the matches, but there's something SPECIAL about XIII that brings everyone out from the woodwork. I see you Gravey and Tort, you Action bastards, I know you're watching!
Laughs from the crowd, small "Action Wrestling" chant because CD's fans aren't bitter.
Corey Black: We've got former World Champions returning tonight, Joey Flash, John Rabid, Jared Holmes, Wade Moor, Jay Omega and ... Logan.
BOOOOOOO! Crowd doesn't like that one at all.
Corey Black: I'm sorry, it'll be okay, everyone has their censor tool to cover up his dick right?
Crowd marks out and they all hold up a comedic styled black censor bar.
Corey Black: Perfect. We have World Champions competing tonight that aren't here for one night only! Jayson Price, Odin Balfore, and ... Adam Young ... but we also have men that will likely be World Champions in the future in Michael X and Sam Shields!
Yaaaaay crowd likes that one.
Corey Black: Also Karma Bishop wassup girl?
Hoots and hollers from the Minneapolis faithful. Corey points to the throne on the balcony.
Corey Black: And I'm going to sit my ass right up there with you guys to watch the whole damn show!
Crowd marks the fuck out as Corey drops the mic and heads into the crowd to make his way to his position for the rest of the show.
We cut to Nikki Venus and Nate Nytro at ringside, sitting next to them is Taylor Swift.
Nate Nytro: Welcome everyone to night ONE of XIII! We're live tonight in Minneapolis, Minnesota! Tune in tomorrow night where Dune will host the show from the Ubehebe Crater in California! Tonight though, action packed contests featuring multiple returns. Corey's plan was to host his show with the returning superstars and allow Dune to have his show with active WCF members, but sometimes, shit happens!
Nikki Venus: That's right Nate, due to a scheduling change, Corey's own match was turned into a match that will have very big implications on the WCF World Title scene coming out of Ultimate Showdown - Michael X taking on Sammy Shields. That contest will be a barnburner.
Nate Nytro: Let's not overlook the rest of the undercard, where we'll see Karma BIshop, wife of Kevin, battling former WCF World Champion Adam Young in what Adam is saying is his FINAL match inside a ring!
Nikki Venus: In addition, we'll have a grudge match between two of the very best - Jared Holmes taking on Jay Omega. Jay's been hush on the match, it's a big return against a big opponent on a big stage.
Nate Nytro: If I know Jay Omega, he won't mess this up. Continuing up the card, Battleground of the Gods PART TWO with Wade Moor challenging Odin Balfore to go to war once again at XIII.
Nikki Venus: These two guys are going to absolutely maul each other, all in the name of proving who is more thick.
Nate Nytro: In our main event, John Rabid returns from his sabbatical, his complete separation from wrestling as a whole to do battle with Joey Flash.
Nikki Venus: You couldn't DREAM a better match to main event XIII, Nate. Corey knew it, when he was on the card, this match was above even him. It's going to be legendary here tonight.
