Post by Action Reel on Dec 17, 2020 2:17:27 GMT -5
Chatter bounces around the inside of the jam-packed UCI Warehouse and a single spotlight swirls around the small stage setup. Under the beam of light, LED lights glow red and display a bright number ten.
I feel the pain, kill the brain
'Cause, bitch, I walk with vengeance
I feel the pain, kill the brain
'Cause, bitch, I walk with vengeance
I feel the pain, kill the brain
'Cause, bitch, I walk with vengeance
I feel the pain, kill the brain
'Cause, bitch, I walk with vengeance
Denzel Curry’s “Vengeance” blasts through the building as Denzel himself is shown on stage in white face paint, rapping through the track as a small titantron above him flashes through shots of UCI originals and world champions from Crow McMorris all the way to Preecha Kamon.
Cops found a body in the alley
Gotta rock the club like a caddie
I'mma push your button like an innie
Switch it up and then I head to Cali
We continue to see classic highlights of the originals as well as more recent clips from “Team AW”. A blast of pyro hits the inside as Denzel sings out the hook once more and salutes to the crowd.
Denzel Curry: THANK YOU, CHICAGO!
The camera takes us ringside where UCI announcer Jimmy Garcia is joined by former announce partner and current AW part owner, Gravedigger.
Jimmy Garcia: Welcome, ladies and gentlemen to UCI: Reunion! Boy, does that feel good to say!
Gravedigger: It sure does! Because tonight, Team AW wipes the floor with the relics of this archived shithole and I’ve gotta tell ya, Jimmy. I feel like a proud father right now!
Jimmy Garcia: It’s an action packed night features faces both new and old! I can’t wait!
We cut to the stage where personnel have finished setting up a podium and cloth covered displays. The crowd continues to buzz steadily before exploding in applause as Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” runs through the building. KOS steps out through the curtain in a deep blue suit and waves to the crowd before stepping to the podium and extending a hand towards the audience.
KOS: Thank you!
Crowd: WE GON’ BE ALRIGHT! WE GON’ BE ALRIGHT!
KOS: Tonight, is a very special night for all of us, but this isn’t about me. This is about something bigger. Tonight, we celebrate the legacy of United Championship Infinite. Tonight, we celebrate pro wrestling.
The crowd lets out another pop.
KOS: Now, let’s kick this thing off right.
KOS motions towards the titantron with his right hand where a gold text is displayed across the screen, much to the delight of those in attendance.
UCI HALL OF FAME
The warehouse goes berserk as the graphic transitions to our first inductee.
The monitor shows us clips of Andre’s battles with and against The Guardians, his thumbtack superkick on Erin Fausse because of fucking course it does, clips of Andre squaring off against Celeste Mallory, and ends with Andre holding up the world championship as he defeats Alex Richards in the Killing Floor match.
WENTWORTH UPDEGRAFF JR.
We get shots of UCI’s first ever signee strutting about in one of his expensive suits as well as Updegraff defeating the likes of Shadowlove and Kyle Kemp before showing us spots from his feud against The Guardians.
We see the big man throwing caution to the wind inside of the Killing Floor structure and waging war alongside his friends as well as his feud against Shadowlove. This transitions to Alex being crowned king as winner of the Watch the Throne tournament and his world title win over Howard Black.
The monitor shows us shots from the tournament to crown the first ever world champion where Crow beat Jay Omega in the finals. It shows us Crow defending the belt in a ladder match against Chase Jackson, Andre Holmes, Jay Omega, and Polar Phantasm before ending on big spots from his classic match against Howard Black.
The tron showcases ZMAC tearing through the roster, winning championship after championship. This includes the Hypermedia title in his debut, the TV title he won against Damian Kaine, his tag team title win with Kaz Mazy, his Battle of New Orleans tournament win, and the world championship win that would make him UCI’s sole grand slam winner in only six months.
There are clips of Kevin Bishop taking the fight to UCI’s best as a high ceiling prospect from WCF. There are shots of Bishop inside of Killing Floor, his victory as the last man standing in the first ever Civil War match and his two world title victories and successful defenses before closing on his successful defense against Dustin Beaver at Beyond.
We see Bonnie Blue’s climb up the ranks, including her Intercontinental title win and her dominance as UCI’s premier tag team specialist. We get some shots of her standing tall as a leader of The Guardians and her world title victory against Kevin Bishop inside an electrified steel cage.
The applause grows as we move back to the stage where the cloth covered display is now revealed. The camera pans over a series of bronze statues made in the likeness of each hall of famer as chanting breaks out.
Crowd: UCI! UCI! UCI! UCI!
The cheering quickly gives way to a wave of boos that floods through the venue as Chase Jackson steps through the curtain, extending a finger towards KOS while his face contorts to show his displeasure.
Chase Jackson: A UCI Hall of Fame...without CJ3?! I was the MAN! You put me in front of people and I-
Crowd: FUCK YOU CHASE! FUCK YOU CHASE!
Chase Jackson: SHUT UP! SHUT YOUR MOUTHS!...Week after week, you would put competition in front of me and I would spear them out of their boots! I was the man and what do you do?! You give me Dune to try to kill my star?! Well, look at me now! Better yet, look at her!
The monitor shows an image of Chase cuddled up next to his girlfriend Lindsey. The crowd cheers loud for Lindsey but boos Chase back into silence as he tries to speak. He appears to grow more and more frustrated, pointing at himself and then the picture of him and his girlfriend. He does this back and forth for awhile, the crowd switching between boos and cheers before he shouts back into the mic.
Chase Jackson: ENOUGH!
The boos continue and Chase appears fed up, throwing down his mic and making his way back towards the curtain. Before he can make it through he is launched back across the stage as a large figure steps onto the stage.
Jimmy Garcia: PETROV IS HERE TOO!
Gravedigger: Jesus Christ..
Crowd: FUCK YOU BUDDY! *CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP*
Petrov shrugs and turns right back around, making his way towards the curtain as well, but is also thrown back as he hits the stage hard with a thud.
Jimmy Garcia: HAJEET?!
Hajeet snarls as he steps onto the stage and hacks up a wad of phlegm and spits it onto the stage. He points at a flag hanging from the rafters and mouths something offensive about America before he too tries to make his way back through the curtain.
Gravedigger: HAJEET IS TAKEN OUT AS WELL!
Jimmy Garcia: What is going on here?!
The sound of steel hitting flesh echoes as Hajeet crashes down near the entrance and an adult woman dressed as a baby comes crawling out from Gorilla.
Jimmy Garcia: IT’S ADRIANA LYNCH! THE ADULT BABY THAT FOR SOME REASON HAS BRACES AND NON-PRESCRIPTION GLASSES IS HERE!
Gravedigger: I burn this place to the ground.
Adriana sucks on her pacifier and goes to say some shit about how she’s a woman but is also a baby. The person writing this segment dies a little bit on the inside. Life has no meaning. Adriana finishes her speech that we can’t understand cause she’s half baby and crawls back through the curtain. After a few moments, she’s launched like a dart across the stage and collapses on the ramp after a long skid.
Jimmy Garcia: CULTURE SHOCK IS IN THE BUILDING!
Oblivion and Corey Bull step onto the stage, but remain silent as they march down the ramp towards the ring. We are one by 12 Stones blasts through the PA as the two men climb into the ring and stand tall.
Gravedigger: Culture Shock is making a statement tonight and we’re getting tag action right out of the gate here!
Falls Count Anywhere Tornado Tag
Two Gents Comeback Tour ‘95 (Andre Jenson and Teo del Sol) vs. Culture Shock (Oblivion and Corey Bull)
The crowd goes virtually silent as the lights dim, Culture Shock staring at the entrance ramp with a look of pure disdain, a silent fury that belies their aggressive nature.
Then, suddenly, and without warning, the sound of trumpet fanfare echoes throughout the arena, as though a monarch is about to enter into a throne room. The brassy sound echoes on the final note, before giving way to a grand and sweeping chorus that would not be out of place in any fantasy film or TV show. And it is here that the two gents finally make their appearance...riding into the arena on a pair of custom segways. The duo moves in tandem on their proud steeds, decorated to look like a pair of unicorns. Teo’s segway horse is wearing a custom lucha libre mask while Andre Jenson’s has what looks like a knight’s helmet on it. The two ride like a pair of knights, heads held high as the crowd goes wild!
Jimmy Garcia: Talk about a way to make an entrance!
Gravedigger: Eh, I’ve seen better.
As the duo reach the end of the entrance ramp, they look at each other and nod, before flipping a switch on their respective mounts. A butt of confetti and ribbons shoots into the air from either side as they walk towards the ring, showering the crowd who responds with a roar of approval.
But it is time for the Gents to finally make their way into the ring, and as they remove their capes and step onto the apron, they take a moment to bask in the crowd response for just a moment-
And suddenly Culture Shock is on them! Not waiting for a bell, the pair of monsters club the Gents from behind, sending them roaring off of the ramp with a pair of clotheslines! The gents barely manage to miss landing on their segways, but collide with the hard concrete below!
Jimmy Garcia: Holy shi- It looks like Culture Shock isn’t waiting for the official bell!
Gravedigger: Falls count anywhere, Jimmy! And that means No Disqualification!
Both Teo and Jenson are struggling to recover, but with almost unnatural speed, the big men follow them to the outside. Bull mounts Teo and begins delivering punches to the luchador, trapping him beneath a flurry of blows. Oblivion meanwhile grabs Jenson and picks him up before dropping him to the ground with a hard body slam! Jenson clutches at his back as the audience winces from the impact.
Jimmy Garcia: Oooh! And this one could be over before it starts!
Oblivion signals to Bull and points at Teo, who is still trying to find his feet, Bull gets a devilish smile on his face as they both go to grab the Luchador by the mask, dragging him roughly to his feet like a ragdoll. They both place a hand around his throat and look at each other with knowing intent before turning to the segways. Teo struggles as best as he can, but is helpless as he is picked up for a double chokeslam!
But wait! Teo manages to barely get his foot on one of the segways’ dashboards! He kicks wildly, managing to flip the switch, sending a butt of ribbons and confetti right into Culture Shock’s faces!
Gravedigger: Ouch! That can’t feel good!
The monstrous duo drop Teo, who manages to roll away as they clutch at their faces, the impact
of compressed air dazing the monsters. Teo takes the opportunity to revive Jenson, and within a moment, the teams are now facing each other on the entrance ramp.
Jimmy Garcia: Teo bought some time, but I think he just made Culture Shock angry!
Sure enough, the monsters advance on the Gents with villainous intent, Oblivion roaring forward towards Teo! But the Luchador uses his speed like a matador, managing to dodge out of the way as Oblivion runs past him, resulting in a clothesline to an unlucky fan in the first row!
Gravedigger: I would like to take this moment to remind the people at home that all tickets to UCI come with a liability waver and-
Jimmy Garcia: Oh my god, look at that!
Bull has advanced on Jenson and has grabbed him by the head, and now attempts to run the gent face first into the entrance area! But Jenson manages to shove Bull off, and the momentum carries him face first into one of the beams! Bull is stunned, but still manages to stay on his feet!
Jimmy Garcia: Such resilience here!
Gravedigger: You don’t get to be hardcore champion without it, Jimmy!
Teo is now moving away from the advancing Oblivion, and he looks to his partner, who nods in agreement. The Gents begin moving towards the entrance ramp, dashing through the curtain as Oblivion runs after them!
But as soon as he makes it through, he runs directly into the outstretched arms of a double clothesline from the Gents! They took advantage of the curtain to grab hands and set a trap for the monster! But even as Oblivion stumbles, dazed, the Gents both clutch their arms from the impact.
Jimmy Garcia: We’ve moved backstage ladies and gentlemen!
Gravedigger: What part of Falls count Anywhere do you not understand?
The gents are looking around for anything to use, something to slow down the monsters’ momentum, but now Bull is in the backstage area as well. Teo goes to hit him with a kick to the midsection, but Bull simply catches it. With his leg trapped, Teo can do nothing as Bull grabs him around the neck for a one-armed chokeslam, driving him into one of the concrete walls! He holds the Luchador off of the ground, back against the wall, trying to choke the life from him as Teo desperately struggles!
Bam! Jenson is on the scene to make the save! He has grabbed a stage light and slammed the metal stand across Bull’s back! Teo slides down the wall as Bull absorbs the impact, and grabs the former Hardcore Champion. The Gents both hold onto him, walking him down the corridor to try and separate him from Oblivion. They approach a door labelled “Do not Enter” and walk Oblivion through…
Gravedigger: Wait, that door leads-
Out into the fan area! There is a roar of sound as a group of surprised fans in line for concessions or merchandise see the three men emerge from the backstage area. Security rushes to contain the fans and keep them back as the Gents walk Oblivion towards the Merchandise area!
Teo turns towards a table lined with Two Gents T-shirts, and grabs many of them, throwing them into the crowd as they cheer. Meanwhile, Jenson holds Oblivion up, grabbing him in a suplex position next to a Table full of Culture Shock T-shirts. He tries to hoist the big man, but Oblivion is too heavy. Teo quickly heads to assist his tag team partner, grabbing Oblivion as well. The two grunt with the effort, but manage to lift his feet off of the ground, and finally lift Oblivion up for a double Suplex through the Culture Shock Merch Table!
Jimmy Garcia: The higher ups aren’t going to like this!
Gravedigger: They knew what was coming when they booked the match, Jimmy!
The duo take a moment to turn to the fans, who are offering cheers of appreciation. They smile and turn to pose for a signature two gents fist bum-
Corey Bull out of nowhere grabs Teo by the back of the head! Jenson is caught off guard and tries to help, but Corey, still holding onto Teo, hits him with a big boot! Jenson is sent stumbling into the very crowd that was just cheering him, and they try to catch him before he falls to the floor. Teo, meanwhile is being violently dragged towards a vending machine near the wall. Bull gets a devilish grin on his face as he looks at the various drinks displayed behind a large plate of glass, and then, hoists Teo up into a running powerslam against the glass!
Gravedigger: Holy Fucking Shit!
The entire machine shudders and the plate shatters, Teo falling like a pile of dirty laundry onto the floor below. Bull grins at the Luchador, now laying prone on the concrete, and retrieves a beverage from the machine, cracking it open and taking a long drink.
Too long! Jenson takes advantage of the distraction and throws Bull backwards! The fans just barely get out of the way as the duo collide with a table set up with condiments for chicago hot dogs. Bull tries to recover but Jenson grabs a bottle of mustard, squirting it into the big man’s face! Bull tries to brush it from his eyes, but Jenson grabs a tub of pickles and throws it at the big man as well! Bull answers in kind, hurling a tub of pickled Onions onto the Kem Monarch! The two are covered in foodstuffs and crumbs, napkins and other things, but Jenson appears to be getting the better of it! He grabs a napkin dispenser and hurls it at Bull’s head, where it bounces off like a basketball. Bull is Dazed, and Jenson holds up his arms, signalling for a big move!
Jimmy Garcia: I think it might be time for the critical hit!
Jenson runs towards his prone opponent, knee raising!
But no! Oblivion grabs him by the back of the neck! Coming out of nowhere, the big man catches Jenson mid move, and clubs him on the back of the head! Bull is still dazed, but tries to recover as Oblivion holds onto the prone Jenson, keeping him from falling but leaving him on his knees. Oblivion looks to the counter, and with an evil look in his eye, grabs a fork from off the counter.
Jimmy Garcia: Oh no...I don’t like where this is going.
Gravedigger: Grow up Jimmy, this ain’t ballet!
Oblivion slowly reaches down and moves the pointed utensil towards Jenson’s face, ever inching closer to his mouth, his nose, and then his eyes. As the helpless audience looks on, Oblivion’s face becomes consumed with an evil grin as he brings the fork into Jenson’s face.
Jimmy Garcia: I can’t watch...
Bam! Out of nowhere Teo del Sol appears, landing a blazing knee on Oblivion! Oblivion reels backwards, caught completely off-guard! As he bent down, he had put himself in perfect position, and he now falls backwards against the wall. Teo quickly checks on his partner, who gives him an affirmative thumbs up, and the duo turn on the monster, grabbing a large plastic trash can. Before Oblivion can even realize what’s happening, they slam it over his head, ramming him into the concrete wall behind him! Finally, the monster slumps to the ground, the impact seemingly finishing him off as he lays trapped beneath the waste receptacle.
But wait! Corey Bull has recovered from the earlier brawl, and grabs both gents from behind, knocking their heads together! They stumble from the impact, trying to regain their balance, but Bull grabs Teo and walks him away from concessions towards the main area, where a crowd of fans has now gathered. With an ear to ear smile, he looks at the crowd before putting Teo down to the ground, grabbing him roughly around the waist, and picking him up for a Crucifix powerbomb!
Jimmy Garcia: Not on the concrete! That could kill a man!
Bull attempts to finish the move, bringing his arms down to throw Teo to the ground once and for all!
But no! Jenson has just managed to catch up to his partner, and holds on to Teo’s feet! Bull tries to throw him, but he can’t move his arms forward enough! The two are caught in a game of Tug of War with Teo as the rope!
Jimmy Garcia: Careful!
Then, finally, Jenson gives Teo a boost, and with a perfect backflip, he lands on his feet in front of Bull. Bull tries to turn around to Jenson, but as soon as he takes his eyes off of them, both Gents connect with a running knee! A Blazing knee to the back of the head and a critical hit to the front! Bull goes almost completely limp and drops to the concrete as the crowd goes wild!
Gravedigger: That could be it!
But the Gents want to put one final exclamation point on it. Teo signals to a fan to hold arms with Jenson. Jenson, smiling, uses his arms with the fan’s to create a step, which Teo puts his foot on. Together they boost the Luchador high into the air!
Jimmy Garcia: Habanero High dive! With the assist from Jenson and the fan!
Teo lands on Bull, knocking whatever wind was left in him right out, as Jenson goes for the cover! A referee runs into the scene, having watched from a safe distance. He slaps his hands against the concrete as the fans count along!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
A broadcast comes over the PA system as the Gents raise their hands in victory.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, your winners...the Two Gents!”
Gravedigger: Talk about a brawl!
Jimmy Garcia: These guys put each other through vending machines, merchandise tables, they hit each other with condiments and napkin dispensers and trash cans, but in the end, the Gents just had that little bit more in the tank.
Gravedigger: Credit to Culture Shock though, it took everything the Gents had to finally keep them down.
The gents are holding up their hands in celebration with the fans, jumping up and down as their music plays over the PA system.
Andre Jenson: Afterparty at Kem! We’re going to party like it’s 1695!
Teo del Sol: I don’t know about anyone else, but I could go for a hot dog!
Andre Jenson: Please don’t say hot dogs right now.
A chorus of laughter plays the gents out as the show returns to a shot of the arena.
El Payaso Loco vs. Damian Kaine
Jimmy Garcia: And do we have a treat for the UCI Faithful up next!
Gravedigger: Is it though?
Jimmy Garcia: Absolutely, it’s Damian Kaine Version 2.Sweet--
Gravedigger: Jesus fuckin’ Christ.
Jimmy Garcia: Against the man formerly known as El Payaso Loco...Jaice Wilds!
Gravedigger: And for that reason...I’m out.
With that, Gravedigger removes his headset and leaves the commentary table.
Jimmy Garcia: Digger...Digger!
Jimmy’s calls to his partner-in-commentary is interrupted by the intro of "Sweatpants,” drawing all eyes to the stage. As Gambino's first verse starts, Damian appears on the stage, and slowly walks down the ramp.
Taylor Lorde: Making his way to the ring, from Savannah, Georgia! Weighing in at 157 pounds. Damian Kaine!
Kaine hops on the apron and gets in the ring.
Jimmy Garcia: Something doesn’t seem right with Damian…
Jimmy Garcia: This is the point at which Digger would say something like “more than usual?” and then I’d chastise him but he’s not here so…
The opening riff of "Let's Go" hits the PA as the lights lower. Red, white and green spotlights flicker around the entrance ramp, falling onto one central space. At that point, they focus upwards as Payaso Loco descends from the rafters on a cord of some form, landing safely on the ground. He detaches himself from the cord, making a beeline for the ring and jumping from the floor, over the top rope and into the ring.
He flies up to the nearest turnbuckle, his arms outstretched as he takes in the reaction from the fans. As he does he yanks off the mask as the crowd cheer the XTremeist. Wilds jumps down off the ropes and turns to DK who does appear out of sorts. The bell rings and the two lock up but Wilds is able to push Kaine backwards easily. DK doesn't even take a normal bump nor roll backwards up to his feet as one would expect but falls square on his ass.
Jimmy Garcia: Kaine does not look right...But Jaice signals for him to get back up and they go to tie up again...this time DK ducks under it….no...wait...he sort of just stumbled forward luckily and isn’t sure where Wilds went..What is going on?
Whatever is wrong with DK, Wilds isn’t giving him any more chances and hits him with a dropkick sending him face first into the turnbuckle. DK bounces backward out and then gets driven into the mat with a release german suplex. DK appears to be absolutely out as Jaice slaps his face lightly to try and get him up. DK stirs and then Jaice lifts him up and..
Jimmy Garcia: DISASTER KICK! Kaine is out! Wilds should pin here but..he’s always been one to give the people what they came to see...he’s up to the top now as they cheer and…ACABADO CAOTICO! There it is! He just stomped on Damian Kaine’s face and he is done! A cover!
And that’s it! El Payaso Wilds just dominated Damian Kaine in short time here. Kaine didn’t even look like himself.
In the ring, Wilds is taking in the adulation of a UCI crowd one last time. Back at the commentary table, we hear a headset rustling and then Gravedigger’s voice.
Gravedigger: First of all, thank god this is over. Second of all, while I was gone I got us quite a scoop.
Jimmy Garcia: Glad to see you’re back to DO YOUR JOB, Digger. What’s the scoop?
Gravedigger: First of all, I’m here as a favor to Spencer. I have a whole damn federation of my own to keep prestigious. God knows Torture ain’t doing shit. Anyways, the scoop is…
He makes a drumroll on the table.
THAT ISN’T DAMIAN KAINE!
Jimmy Garcia: What are you talking about?
Gravedigger: That’s not Damian Kaine that Jaice just absolutely destroyed! It’s a stunt double!
Jimmy Garcia: Okay, okay...that’s enough. Congrats to Jaice Wilds on the win over Da--
Gravedigger: Mian Kaine’s stunt double!
Jimmy Garcia: Stop it. Can we just go to commercial?
As UCI fades to commercial Gravedigger’s voice can be heard emphatically.
Gravedigger: Really! That was a fucking stunt double! I’m telling you! Jet fuel can’t melt steel beams!
Bolas de Arana vs. Brent Alpine
A ghostly synth breathes over the PA.
The first keyboard chord of Prince's 'Gold' blares as a red shooting star firework darts up from the entrance-way to the left rafters. The second chord chimes as the arena lights flash red. The third chord accompanies a light blue star shoots to the upper right of the arena. Blue lights flash to greet the fourth chord.
Percy Micro, a micro pig with an electronic voice-box, scurries down the ramp to laughs and an ironic pop from the crowd.
As the main tune commences, a yellow spotlight covers the entrance as 'The Shine' Brent Alpine steps out from the back to sneers. A shower of sparks surround him, eliciting a brief pop at the spectacle. Alpine keeps walking, slides into the ring and jumps onto the turnbuckle. The pig 'speaks' in a robotic tone.
Percy Micro: Introducing my cherished commodity, from Rockhampton, Australia, weighing 259 pounds... 'The Shine'... Brent... Alpine!
Jimmy Garcia: Big match here with The Shine taking on Bolas de Arana!
'The Shine' glares in comical intensity and lifts up the back of his suit jacket like a Batman cape. He dismounts and hangs his jacket on the turnbuckle. He leaps onto the opposite turnbuckle. He removes his tie and long white shirt and throws them into the crowd, now ready for the match ahead.
Gravedigger: Alpine! Arana! Now!
DING DING DING!
BRENT ALPINE FLIES OUT OF THE CORNER IN A CLOTHESLINE, BUT BOLAS CATCHES HIM IN A STANDING SPANISH FLY! THE COVER!
NO Alpine kicks out, Bolas spingboard off the middle rope - CAUGHT BY THE SHINE! GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE BUCKLE! Bolas hits hard and falls to a sitting potision, Shine off the ropes and CANNONBALL!
Gravedigger: Fast paced action as Shine gets caught and then returns the favor!
Jimmy Garcia: This is UCI!
Akpine drags Bolas out to the middle of the ring and pulls him up - powerbomb - reversed! Bolas falls backward and ranas Alpine over, off the ropes, SHINING WIZARD DUCKED BY BRENT ALPINE! Bolas scoots across the mat and comes back at him only to get caught with a FRANKENSTEINER! Alpine spikes Bolas and follows that up with a standing moonsault! COVER!
Bolas kicks out!
Gravedigger: Both The Shine and Bolas de Arana are showing exactly why the crowd here should appreciate the forefather federations!
Shine goes to lock in Mount Unpleasant, the camel clutch but Bolas slips out the back door and musters an enziguri! Shine stumbles to his left, Bolas bounces off the middle rope and comes back with a corkscrew blockbuster! Shine hits the mat ans sits up, Bolas hits that Shining Wizard her was looking for earlier!
Jimmy Garcia: Bolas putting a string of moves together now!
Bolas de Arana goes up to the top rope and flies off with the most twisty senton bomb the world has ever seen ONLY TO TOTALLY EAT MAT! The Shine is done with this stuff though, he whips Bolas to the ropes and hits a big front kick to the solar plexus. With Bolas hunched over Shine grabs the arm and executes a cutthroat swinging neckbreaker!
Jimmy Garcia: THE GLOW WORM!
Shine doesn't go for the cover, instead he rolls through AND HITS ANOTHER ONE!
Gravedigger: BOLAS BOUNCED OFF HIS BRAIN!
DING DING DING!
Jimmy Garcia: The Shine Brent Alpine takes it in a mildly convincing manor!
The crowd errupts, even given Alpine's prior affiliation with them, they're just happy to see these two guys once again!
ACTUAL World Title
Kyle Cameron vs. Umeji vs. Claire Hawkins vs. Kuno Kenji
Jimmy Garcia: Great night of action! Never thought we’d be back in this building, but UCI is back where it all started!
The crowd cheers as the camera ringside flashes to the final OG UCI champ in the front row, a nameplate graphic flashes across the screen centered at the bottom.
Jimmy Garcia: All the big names are here tonight, Digger!
Gravedigger: You’re damn right.
Jimmy Garcia: It’s been awhile since we last heard from Preecha. Any word on business talks with UCI’s last champ?
Gravedigger: None as of yet, but you know that over in Action Wrestling, we do what we can to sign top talent from all over the world and in this business, anything can happen!
Jimmy Garcia: Well, look no further!
The crowd continues to cheer and we cut to the backstage area where Umeji is seen making his way towards Gorilla, his stride is calm and collected as he rounds a corner towards the home stretch.
Jimmy Garcia: LOOK OUT!
Umeji is clubbed from behind by Kyle Cameron and sent down to the concrete. A nearby official scurries to the scene, pressing his finger against his earpiece as he approaches.
Gravedigger: HOLY SHIT! THIS IS GOLD! START THE DAMN MATCH NOW!
Jimmy Garcia: Did you just-start a match yourself from the table?
KC drags Umeji up and grabs his shoulder and trunks and launches him forward.
Jimmy Garcia: Umeji sent spine first into the concrete!
The crowd audibly cringes as KC hoists Umeji up and pulls him in.
Gravedigger: THERE GOES CATERING!
Jimmy Garcia: ARM DRAG THROUGH THE CATERING TABLE!
Taylor Lorde: Umeji has been eliminated!
Jimmy Garcia: We’re not even in the ring and we already have our first elimination!
Gravedigger: This is an ACTUAL world title match done right!
KC brushes his palms together as if to wipe his hands of his opponent, but is met by an incoming Claire Hawkins rounding the corner with a big lariat.
Jimmy Garcia: KC goes down!
The crowd pops for Hawkins and she drags KC by the right arm through Gorilla, leading him out onto the stage to an even bigger crowd reaction.
Claire grips KC’s mane and pops off with big right hands.
Gravedigger: SPINEBUSTER ON THE STAGE FROM KC!
Jimmy Garcia: Huge reversal!
KC gets to his feet, cocking his head back and soaking in the negative crowd reaction.
Jimmy Garcia: KUNO IS HERE!
Gravedigger: That damn cat boy..
Jimmy Garcia: Headscissors on Kyle Cameron!
Kuno gets a good half dozen rotations in, showcasing his agility for the crowd before flinging his momentum backwards and sending KC off the stage.
Gravedigger: THROUGH THE TABLE!
Jimmy Garcia: WOW!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Taylor Lorde: Kyle Cameron has been eliminated!
Jimmy Garcia: Just like that, it’s Kuno Kenji and Claire Hawkins for the belt!
Kuno looks back at Claire who is starting to get to her feet and charges down the ramp toward the various tables at ringside.
Gravedigger: Cat boy leaning a table up against the apron.
Jimmy Garcia: Here comes Claire Hawkins!
Kuno turns just in time, leaping up just in time and landing in position for another headscissors.
Gravedigger: Just about makes me sick trying to watch this.
Kuno tries to slip Claire forward, but is caught by surprise as she’s able to land on her feet. Kuno steps forward and twists into a buzzsaw kick.
Jimmy Garcia: BLACK MIST FROM CLAIRE!
Gravedigger: He’s a blind man!
In a blind frenzy, Kuno spins through again and connects with the kick.
Jimmy Garcia: He didn’t land all of that, but it is enough to throw Claire off balance!
Claire shakes off the cob webs, setting her sights back on the blinded Kuno as she sprints towards her target.
Gravedigger: DROPKICK FROM CLAIRE HAWKINS!
DING DING DING!
Taylor Lorde: The winner of this match and NEW Actual World Champion, Claire Hawkins!
Jimmy Garcia: Wow! An interesting match to say the least!
Claire gets to her feet, arms raised towards the ceiling as a newly crafted ACTUAL world title is presented to her by the official. She drags the belt on the ground behind her and favors her head as she makes her way back through the curtain. Kuno recovers in the rubble of the table he’d set up moments prior. He wipes the mist from his eyes as the black dye gives way to a stream of tears.
Crowd: THANK YOU KU-NO! *CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP* THANK YOU KU-NO! *CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP*
Jimmy Garcia: A valiant effort from one of the more unique competitors to ever grace UCI and this crowd is behind him all the way!
The official helps Kuno to his feet as he continues to wipe mist and tears from his eyes and the crowd chants him out.
2 out of 3 Falls
Bonnie Blue vs. L Verez
The scene opens with an overhead cam above the UCI ring, transitioning to a panning sweep of the front row crowd.
Crowd: UCI! UCI! UCI! UCI! UCI! UCI! UCI!
Jimmy Garcia: WELCOME BACK TO UCI: REUNION!!! What a helluva’ night it’s been so far and now it’s time for the co-main event!
Gravedigger: Oh hell yeah, Jimmy!
Jimmy Garcia: A match between two former teammates in a union that began right here in UCI!
Gravedigger: The Guardians were a staple of the circuit and have even extended past UCI into Action Wrestling and beyond!
Jimmy Garcia: Tonight, right now, Bonnie Blue and L Verez compete in a two out of three falls match! And it begins now!
The lights bleed an indigo color throughout the arena as the beeping sound of the dubstep remix of Idioteque by Radiohead sounds off. The alarm goes off, the lights go out, and the ceiling above the stage makes an opening, steam blasting downward with a spotlight around it. Once the music quiets down, L Verez is seen sitting crosslegged on a hovering disc with a spinning, glowing ring around it, wearing her Hypermedia Championship. Her skin, goggles, and lining to her attire also glowing. She slowly hovers downward from the ceiling, being welcomed by a loud roar from the crowd.
One last beep sounds, and UV lights flood the arena. The beat drops, and L hovers around the arena, exciting the crowd as she hovers over them. She even goes up to the nosebleeds, giving fans peace sign high fives to the lucky fans as she hovers around them.
Announcer: Making her way to the ring, from Planet Quartex, weighing in at 125 pounds, she is the "Universal Guardian"... L VEEEREEEZ!!
L Verez spirals her way down, greeting as many fans as she can before making her way to the center of the arena, and lowers herself to the squared circle, the lights constantly changing color as she descends. L jumps off the hovercraft just before it hits the ground, grabbing the hovercraft in the process. The music stops, and the lights go back to normal. The crowd cheers as she bows and lets go of the hovercraft, allowing it to hover its way back out of the ceiling opening, getting one last roar from the crowd. She goes over to the corner of the ring, and sits crosslegged, anticipating her match. She raises her title to pump up the crowd once more.
Crowd: L VEREZ! L VEREZ! L VEREZ! L VEREZ! L VEREZ! L VEREZ! L VE...
White fog rolls across the stage as the opening riff of “Blood” filters through the speakers. The Infini-Tron flickers to life with a black-and-white image of Bonnie Blue, her face streaked bloody, as she launches herself in slow motion at Odin Balfore. A burning effect wipes away the image, and a full-color video package begins to play. The arena thunders with a roar of disapproval as Bonnie Blue steps from behind the curtain and stalks to the edge of the stage to lift her arms overhead. The tempo picks up, and the Hardcore Queen struts down the ramp, trading high-fives and fist bumps with the fans who want them; taunting the rest with an arrogant sneer on crimson lips.
Announcer: On her way to the ring, standing at five eight and weighting one hundred and thirty pounds...BONNIE BLUUUUUUUUE!!!
At ringside, she walks up the steps and swaggers across the ring. The Time Witch poses, one foot on the top rope, raising her hands into the air as the music reaches a dramatic crescendo. As the song fades, she leaps down from her perch and hands off her effects to the official.
Crowd: BONNIE BLUE! BONNIE BLUE! BONNIE BLUE! BONNIE BLUE! BONNIE BLUE! BONNIE BLUE!!!
L Verez and Bonnie Blue lock eyes, contention burning in the fires of their irises. They pace their corners as they make final mental preparations for the match.
Jimmy Garcia: You can cut the tension with a knife Gravedigger!
Gravedigger: I thought these two were friends?! What the hell happened?
Jimmy Garcia: Bonnie Blue wasn’t as appreciative of L Verez carrying on The Guardians name as she was led to believe! Im not entirely sure what happened over Nevada that night, but sources close to the two say it wasn’t a friendly reunion.
Gravedigger: And it looks like it’s going to spill into the ring tonight! You know the two of them are going to bring their all!
The referee calls for the bell!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
L Verez and Bonnie Blue meet up in the middle of the ring as Bonnie gets in the face of Verez. Bonnie starts saying something inaudible and jams her finger into the breast of L Verez. L Verez puts her hand in Bonnie’s face and pushes her away to an OOOOOOH from the crowd!
Jimmy Garcia: Looks like L’s heard enough!
Gravedigger: This match is on!
Bonnie rushes in and takes a dominant position over L Verez, who quickly reverses into a waist lock...but Bonnie floats behind and gets a waist lock of her own! L rushed the ropes and holds on, pushing Bonnie back and down to the floor. Bonnie rolls through to her feet as L turns around. Bonnie throws a quick gut kick, but L catches the leg and spins her around in a circle. L Verez goes for an enziguiri, but Blue ducks underneath. Bonnie goes for a dropkick as L gets to her feet, but L sidesteps it and hits the ropes! Bonnie drops down as L leaps over her, then leaps off the ground for a quick hip toss, but L catches the arm! L goes for a hurricanrana, but Bonnie flips forward and rolls to her feet! She turns around and they meet in a fighting stance in the middle of the ring as the crowd absolutely lights the fuck up! They start to clap and cheer for both of them! Bonnie and L take a moment to soak it in, but Bonnie uses the distraction to hit L Verez with a huge gut shot and then clubs her on the back!
Bonnie starts jawing to the crowd as she takes control of L’s head. She moves her into the turnbuckle where the referee tries to split the two up. Bonnie backs off nonchalantly, then comes in quick with a right forearm, then whips L Verez into the opposite turnbuckle! She takes off after her, but L Verez goes up and over, hits the ropes, and comes back with a huge spinning wheel kick that knocks Bonnie flat on her back!
Jimmy Garcia: What a hell of an opening to this match! They’re both on such an even keel that their exchange could have gone either way!
Gravedigger: Bonnie seemed to have the upper hand until L Verez clocked her with that spinning wheel kick!
L Verez quickly floats over the pin!
Jimmy Garcia: Shoulder up from Bonnie Blue! L Verez tried to secure her first pin fall for the match, but it’s going to take a lot more than that to put away The Daughter of Time!
Bonnie Blue rolls away from L Verez and pulls herself to her feet! L Verez patiently awaits Bonnie’s recovery. Bonnie looks at her like “you’re an idiot” as they approach the center of the ring! They hold their hands up for another lock up, but Bonnie sends her knee directly into the gut of L Verez and sends her over the shoulder with a snap suplex! L Verez hits the ground and pops up as Bonnie drops her with a Russian leg sweep! Bonnie flips over for a pinfall!
Jimmy Garcia: “Not on your life” says L Verez as she gets the shoulder up!
Gravedigger: I thought it was a three count personally!
Bonnie Blue lifts L Verez by the head to her feet, but L Verez explodes up and breaks the hold! She grabs Bonnie in a headlock and rushes the turnbuckle, using the momentum to fling around with a sit out bulldog! L Verez pops up and roars to the crowd who lap it up! L turns around to pull the stumbling Bonnie up to her feet! She whips her into the turnbuckle and comes in for a plancha splash, but Bonnie lifts her up and over to the top turnbuckle! L Verez tried to assess, but Bonnie springs off the ropes and grabs L Verez!
Jimmy Garcia: KINGDOM DESTROYER! FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Bonnie Blue floats over for the pinfall.
Jimmy Garcia: Bonnie’s done it! She’s secured her first pin in this two out of three falls match!
Gravedigger: What a move too!
Jimmy Garcia: L Verez is going to have a hard time recovering from that one, Gravedigger!
L Verez is through a loop. Bonnie is smiling wide now, her confidence on full display now. She pulls L Verez to her feet and shoves her into the turnbuckle, grabbing her face and yelling at her! She hits a massive chest chop that resounds through the UCI Warehouse. Forearm! Chest chop! Bonnie goes through a loop before grabbing L Verez by the head and tossing her to the canvas! Bonnie Blue ascends the turnbuckle, stands at the top, then puts her head on her folded hands in a sleep sign.
Jimmy Garcia: She’s signaling GOODNIGHT FOR L VEREZ!
Gravedigger: SONIC SCREWDRIVER!
Jimmy Garcia: L VEREZ ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! BONNIE BLUE DIDN’T GET ANYTHING BUT CANVAS ON THAT ONE!
Bonnie Blue is rolling around, grabbing her ribs in agony! L Verez is desperately climbing to her feet, trying like hell to gain the upper hand. Bonnie crawls towards the ropes to pull herself up, still holding her hurt midsection. Bonnie uses the top rope and stands to her feet, just as L Verez comes charging in with a clothesline that spills them both over the top rope to the apron! Bonnie barely catches herself on the bottom rope as L Verez lands nimbly on her feet. L Verez approaches Bonnie, who throws a desperate kick at Verez’s knee, knocking her down to a kneeling position! Bonnie uses the moment to pull herself up and charges Verez with a knee to the face, but Verez dodges and ends up behind Bonnie! She grabs her around the waist and drops her with a back suplex on the apron!
Jimmy Garcia: HOLY HELL! YOU KNOW THAT HURT!
Gravedigger: I’ve taken moves on the apron...it doesn’t feel good Jimmy.
Bonnie spills to the arena floor, holding her back. L Verez doesn’t relent as she pulls Bonnie to her feet and drives her into the apron once more before grabbing her by the head and rolling her into the ring! L Verez climbs the apron and then the turnbuckle!
Jimmy Garcia: Now L Verez is going high risk!
Gravedigger: 450 SPLASH!
Bonnie rolls out of the way, but L Verez sees it and lands on her feet! Bonnie gets to her feet just as L Verez comes in!
Jimmy Garcia: TIME STOPPER!!! HOLY HELL L VEREZ JUST USED BONNIE BLUES OWN MOVE AGAINST HER!
Gravedigger: Bold move! Let’s see if it pays off!
L Verez goes in for the cover!
Jimmy Garcia: L Verez secures her first pinfall for the match!
Gravedigger: That puts them neck and neck, Jimmy! Next pinfall wins the match!
Jimmy Garcia: And What a hell of a match it’s been so far! These two have given absolutely everything in this ring so far, but now they have to dig down and give a little more!
Gravedigger: They’ve both taken huge moves, moves that would put most competitors out of contention for the rest of the night, but they’re just moving into their third match of the night!
Jimmy Garcia: No matter how you split this, these two are both two of the toughest women in wrestling, of today or any lifetime!
Gravedigger: I don’t normally agree with you Jimmy, but I’ve got to put it down for Bonnie Blue and L Verez.
Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME! 👏🏼 THIS IS AWESOME! 👏🏼 THIS IS AWESOME! 👏🏼
L Verez and Bonnie Blue are both stumbling around on jelly legs. They meet in the middle of the ring and L Verez throws a hard right hand that knocks Bonnie through a loop!...but she summons her strength and comes back with her own right hand! L Verez bounds into the ropes, but comes back with a spinning heel kick to the midsection! Bonni eats it as L Verez runs the ropes...but comes back into a huge overhead hip toss...but Bonnie lands on her feet! She spins in a 180 and throws a hard forearm, but L Verez ducks at the absolute last second and grabs Bonnie under the arm and around the neck!
Jimmy Garcia: STO!
Gravedigger: Bonnie elbows Verez and breaks the hold!
Bonnie kicks out Verez knee one more time and Verez hits the mat in a kneeling position! Bonnie hits the ropes and goes for a shining wizard...but L Verez dodges out of the way! L Verez spins around...and eats a kick to the head courtesy of Bonnie Blue!
Jimmy Garcia: Even I didn’t see that shot coming!
Gravedigger: Bonnie is getting tired of the nonsense. She’s ready to put away L Verez once and for all!
Bonnie picks L Verez, whose dazed and confused, to her feet. She grabs her by the face and starts yelling at her one more time! L Verez can’t even see straight, her heads on backwards.
Jimmy Garcia: TIME STOPPER!!!
Jimmy Garcia: HOLY HELL!!!
L Verez grabs Bonnie and holds her suspended! Bonnie glancing around wondering what the hell just happened! L Verez lifts her up high and slams her to the mat, rocking Bonnie’s shit hard! Bonnie pops up to her feet!
Jimmy Garcia: CLOTHESLINE!
Bonnie pops up again!
Jimmy Garcia: BODY SLAM!
Bonnie pops up one last time as L springs off the ropes with a massive dropkick, dropping Bonnie to the mat one last time!
Jimmy Garcia: What a sequence of maneuvers from L Verez giving her the upper hand! The crowds as behind her as they can get right now! L Verez has a fire inside of her right now that can’t be quelled!
L Verez roars again as Bonnie stumbles to her feet once more.
Jimmy Garcia: CELESTIAL DESCENT!!!
Gravedigger: BONNIE POWERS OUT!!!
Jimmy Garcia: WEEPING ANGEL!!!
Gravedigger: L VEREZ ROLLS OVER THE BACK!!!
Jimmy Garcia: FINITE!!!
Gravedigger: SHE CINCHES IN THE LEG LOCK! L VEREZ HAS IT LOCKED IN!!!
Jimmy Garcia: BONNIES REACHING DESPERATELY FOR THE ROPES!!!
Bonnie’s inches away, her hand starts to fade and falls to the mat!
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Jimmy Garcia: THE REFEREE CALLS IT!
“Idioteque” by Radiohead hits the PA and the crowd goes ape shit as L Verez releases the hold and rolls Bonnie away. L Verez stumbles to her feet, using the ropes as added leverage. The referee comes close and grabs her hand, holding it up as L Verez managed to stand to her feet.
Jimmy Garcia: These two laud absolutely everything on the line tonight, L Verez came out the victor but you can’t take anything away from Bonnie Blue!
Gravedigger: Two our of three falls is no joke! Both of these competitors are tough, but L Verez was just a little tougher tonight!
Jimmy Garcia: What a hell of a co main event tonight here at UCI: Reunion! L Verez is celebrating her victory up the ramp way! L Verez hits the stage and takes a bow as the crowd starts to chant her name!
Crowd: L VEREZ! L VEREZ! L VEREZ! L VEREZ! L VEREZ!
L Verez takes a bow before leaving through the curtain. Bonnie starts to work to her feet, shaking her head, holding on to the ropes for support. The crowd starts to heat up a little bit, small chants start to break out, eventually turning into an all out road!
Crowd: THANK YOU BONNIE! THANK YOU BONNIE! THANK YOU BONNIE! THANK YOU BONNIE! THANK YOU BONNIE!
Jimmy Garcia: The UCI faithful showing their love and support for one of UCI’s most polarizing, legendary stars! What a hell of a night it’s been so far!
Bonnie is beside herself. She doesn’t know how to react to the crowd!
Jimmy Garcia: We have one more match coming your way tonight, but for now give it up for these tw...
THE LIGHTS SHUT OFF!
Jimmy Garcia: WHAT IN THE HELL?!?!
Gravedigger: ...oh no...
THE LIGHTS TURN ON!
Jimmy Garcia: WHAT IN THE HOLY HELL IS THAT?!?!
Jimmy Garcia: OH GOD!!!
Leviathan is standing behind Bonnie, his massive frame heaving. Bonnie Blue looks confused before turning around directly into a gut kick from Action Wrestlings resident monster.
Jimmy Garcia: ...
Gravedigger: UNLEASH THE LEVIATHAN!!!
Leviathan drops Bonnie Blue directly on her head with a disgusting package piledriver, sitting there in a thousand yard stare, her unconscious body spilled across his lap. He shoves her away and stands to his feet, looking down on her with a mixture of interest and loathing. He kneels down next to her, his mouth curving into a shark toothed grin. He waves his hand gently as the lights shut out one more time.
Crowd: WHAT THE FUCK!!! WHAT THE FUCK!!! WHAT THE FUCK!!! WHAT THE FUCK!!! WHAT THE FUCK!!!
The lights come back on one more time and Leviathan is gone. Bonnie Blue lays prone in the ring, a single red balloon tied to her wrist, footing above her. Upon it is a single inscription.
Jimmy Garcia: XIII!!!
Gravedigger: It looks like Leviathan has officially challenged Bonnie Blue to a match at XIII!!! As it was announced earlier, ANYONE is allowed to compete at XIII, and these two have unsettled emotions and business to take care of!!!
Jimmy Garcia: Will Bonnie Blue accept?
Gravedigger: Would anyone?!?!
The scene fades out on Bonnie Blue still lying prone in the ring.
Civil War Match
Alex Richards/Kevin Bishop/Erin Fausse/Zombie McMorris/Andre Holmes vs. Dandy DiVito/Lissie Hope/Derrick Vayden/Walter/Bobby Rage
Jimmy Garcia: The moment we’ve all been waiting for is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited for what looks to be the most ambitious crossover in recent times!
Gravedigger: I just want to say that the referee has received specific instructions to not call a single DQ during this match. This will be one for the history books and I’ll be damned if it goes down as anything less than great.
Jimmy Garcia: Before we get started here, I think now’s a good time to remind those watching of the rules for this one.
Gravedigger: Have at it, nerd.
Jimmy Garcia: Tonight, two teams face off in an elimination tag match. If multiple competitors from the same team survive the opposition, those teammates will then be pitted against one another to decide who walks away as the winner of Civil War!
Gravedigger: Which will of course be a member of Team AW.
Jimmy Garcia: We’ll see about that, Digger! One thing’s for sure, this is going to be a war!
Born for Greatness hits the PA and the crowd boos, because that’s what you do as a mark at a UCI reunion show. Team AW make their way out and towards the ring, each of them wearing a yellow and blue AW shirt. Lissie, Vayden, and Walter march alongside each other while Bobby Rage trails behind them looking pretty suspect.
Jimmy Garcia: No sign of the AW champ. Could be an issue for the visitors.
Gravedigger: Don’t worry about AW, Jimmy.
The four competitors climb into the ring and assume a corner, talking amongst themselves about who will start things off.
Jimmy Garcia: A little pre-match strategy from the AW folks.
Gravedigger: Gotta be prepared, Jimmy.
Tarantula by Smashing Pumpkins blares through the arena to a massive pop as Team UCI appears on stage. Alex Richards, Andre Holmes, Kevin Bishop, Zombie McMorris, and Erin Fausse all make their way down wearing blue and black UCI shirts.
Jimmy Garcia: A big ovation for a team of UCI legends here tonight!
Gravedigger: Team of washed up hacks is more like it.
Jimmy Garcia: Hate all you want, UCI is primed and you’re down a man, Digger!
Team UCI takes to their corner and go to discuss who will lead, but are cut off as Andre Holmes takes opening duties upon himself, staring daggers in silence at the opposite corner. The referee checks on both sides, but is forced aside as Bobby Rage steps through the ropes for Team AW.
Jimmy Garcia: Rage versus Holmes?! Talk about a fight we never knew we needed!
Gravedigger: Bobby’s about to Rage for real for real!
Jimmy Garcia: Why did you say it twice?
Gravedigger: I’m fucking hip, Jimmy. Don’t question me.
DING DING DING!!
Jimmy Garcia: and we’re off to the races!
The two men move to the middle of the ring and meet forehead to forehead, talking their shit before taking a couple steps back.
Gravedigger: Hard jab from Holmes, not doing much to Rage though.
Jimmy Garcia: Counterpunch from Rage though and that will take Holmes down!
Gravedigger: What is Rage doing?!
Jimmy Garcia: Rage swinging towards his own team now!
DV, Walter, and Lissie all jump off the apron as Rage stares them down.
Gravedigger: Look out, you big goof!
Jimmy Garcia: Rollup by Andre Holmes!
Gravedigger: Quick roll through by Rage.
Jimmy Garcia: THRUST KICK BY HOLMES! ANDRE HOLMES WITH THE COVER!
Taylor Lorde: Bobby Rage has been eliminated!
Jimmy Garcia: Just like that, Andre Holmes with the first elimination for Team UCI and we have a five on three situation!
Team AW looks on in shock, unsure of what to do as Holmes smirks to himself and sinks back towards the corner and taunts for another challenger.
Gravedigger: Erin Fausse tagging herself in here!
Jimmy Garcia: Andre Holmes not looking happy about that, but Fausse is the legal competitor right now!
Gravedigger: Here comes Vayden for AW.
Jimmy Garcia: Fausse and Vayden both with a head of steam!
Gravedigger: Fausse catches him with the hurricanrana and Vayden stumbles back to his corner now.
Jimmy Garcia: Both charging forward again though.
Gravedigger: Hurricanrana number two from Fausse.
Jimmy Garcia: Number three on the way!
Gravedigger: V TRIGGER!
Jimmy Garcia: Fausse goes down!
Taylor Lorde: Erin Fausse has been eliminated!
Jimmy Garcia: That’s not your catchphrase.
Gravedigger: I felt it in spirit.
Jimmy Garcia: Here comes ZMAC, UCI’s first and only grand slam champion coming in to square off against Derrick Vayden!
Gravedigger: V-TRIGGER FROM VAYDEN!
Jimmy Garcia: ZMAC catches him!
Gravedigger: Vayden in position for the axe wound here.
Jimmy Garcia: Vayden slips behind though, Vayden off the ropes!
Jimmy Garcia: MY GOD!
Taylor Lorde: Zombie McMorris has been eliminated!
Gravedigger: Just like that, Vayden picks up two straight eliminations and evens the playing field for AW!
Jimmy Garcia: ZMAC can’t believe it! I can’t believe it!
Gravedigger: Kevin Bishop in now.
Jimmy Garcia: This is gonna be good!
Bishop steps in and cracks his neck, pacing about a bit as DV shrugs off the challenge and sprints forward once more.
Jimmy Garcia: Bishop ducking underneath, off the ropes here!
Jimmy Garcia: BLACK DEATH AND THE PIN!
Jimmy Garcia: Vayden kicks out! Vayden kicks out!
Bishop stands to his feet and motions to the crowd who pop hard before he grabs Vayden by the hair to pull him back up.
Gravedigger: Small package from Vayden!
Jimmy Garcia: Kickout from Bishop!
Bishop gets to his knees and smiles at the still recovering Vayden and goes to pull him up, positioning himself behind him and throwing a few quick punches along the way.
Gravedigger: Both men up, back and forth strikes here.
Jimmy Garcia: Spinning backfist from Bishop, Vayden wobbled again!
Gravedigger: Bishop going off the ropes again, thinking Black Death.
Jimmy Garcia: DOUBLE UNDERARM ON THE CATCH! MIDAIR DOUBLE UNDERARM FROM VAYDEN!
Taylor Lorde: Kevin Bishop has been-
Gravedigger: Are you kidding me?!
Jimmy Garcia: The ref is waving her off! He’s saying Bishop kicked out!
Gravedigger: Both men recovering now, Bishop just barely kicking out of that DDT at the very last second.
Jimmy Garcia: This match started out very quick, but you see that as we get further into it, people only get grittier and learn to dig deeper!
Gravedigger: This is all about bragging rights and both of these men would love to be the last one standing when it’s all said and done.
Jimmy Garcia: Discus forearm from DV!
Bishop struggles to stand as DV readies himself for another.
Gravedigger: Bishop with the headscissors on the reversal.
Jimmy Garcia: He catches him for the pin!
Taylor Lorde: Derrick Vayden has been eliminated!
Gravedigger: No way!
Jimmy Garcia: Bishop catches Vayden with the roll through and he’s out of here!
Gravedigger: Back to a three versus two situation.
Jimmy Garcia: What’s going on here?!
The lights flicker out one by one as Bishop is making his way back up.
Gravedigger: Of course the lighting screws up. I expect nothing less from UTI.
As the lights come back on, Bishop is hoisted upon.
Jimmy Garcia: THAT’S A DOOM SQUAD MEMBER! DOOM SQUAD IS HERE!
Gravedigger: Holy shit..
Jimmy Garcia: BURNING HAMMER! BISHOP GOES DOWN!
The masked figure stands up and immediately unmasks to reveal Corey Black himself.
Gravedigger: CB is in the building!
Corey turns towards the ramp, making his way to the back in silence as the crowd remains stunned themselves.
Jimmy Garcia: Wait a minute! Lissie Hope running in for the pin now!
Taylor Lorde: Kevin Bishop has been eliminated!
Jimmy Garcia: A former Civil War winner gone and we’re down to our final four! It’s Walter and Lissie Hope against Alex Richards and Andre Holmes!
Gravedigger: Keep in mind, both of the big guys are fresh in this match.
Jimmy Garcia: Here comes Holmes back in against Lissie!
The two circle each other before diving in for a clinch.
Gravedigger: Trading elbows and knees, both of these competitors very capable strikers.
Jimmy Garcia: Big knee from Andre Holmes, that one sends Lissie towards the corner.
Gravedigger: Andre running in for the knee lift.
Jimmy Garcia: Elbow reversal from Lissie Hope, that one catching Holmes right on the button!
Lissie hops up, mounting the turnbuckle and standing tall. Before she’s able to takeoff, Andre lunges at the ropes and causes her to drop back down.
Gravedigger: Holmes back on the offensive.
Jimmy Garcia: Andre pulls her in, powerbomb position!
Holmes pivots around and sprints forward in the opposite direction.
Jimmy Garcia: Bad Landing from Andre Holmes!
Lissie falls hard to the mat as Andre takes a moment to collect himself and center himself in the ring.
Gravedigger: Holmes stomping at the mat now, waiting for his opponent now and he could have her right where he wants her.
Jimmy Garcia: THRUST KICK INCOMING!
Gravedigger: NO! LISSIE HITS HIM RIGHT IN THE PROVERBIAL GRAPEFRUITS!
Jimmy Garcia: LOW BLOW FROM LISSIE!
Andre winces in pain, his legs buckling as Lissie forces herself back to her feet and pulls Andre in.
Gravedigger: CROWN OF THORNS!
Taylor Lorde: Andre Holmes has been eliminated!
Gravedigger: It’s two on one now! Richards is royally fucked!
No stranger to high pressure situations, Richards steps through the ropes, Lissie Hope smirking as she eggs him on from the AW corner.
Jimmy Garcia: If anyone can win a match like this, it’s Alex Richards, but he’s got Lissie and a fresh Walter still to go through!
Gravedigger: Looks like he could be dealing with one more!
Jimmy Garcia: DANDY DIVITO IS HERE! THE CHAMP IS HERE!
DD hopes the barricade and slides into the ring immediately, standing next to Lissie as Richards grows wide eyed.
Gravedigger: A three on one situation? Bye Bye, ARich!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
The two men stare down, Lissie applauding smarkily as Richards and Dandy come head to head.
Jimmy Garcia: Look out!
Gravedigger: DD throwing a flurry of rights and lefts at his own partner!
Dandy continues to lay into Lissie with hard shots as Walter looks on emotionless from the apron. Dandy’s strikes manage to bring Lissie to ragdoll form as he motions for Richards to get into position and hands her off.
Gravedigger: Not like this!
Jimmy Garcia: SANITY SLIP!
Taylor Lorde: Lissie Hope has been eliminated!
Gravedigger: Wow...just wow…
Dandy rolls out under the bottom rope and takes a bow to a massive wave of nuclear heat from the crowd before disappearing through the back.
Jimmy Garcia: Well...I think we got our final two!
Gravedigger: It’s one on one now and while we didn’t get teammates fighting each other in the way we thought we might, I don’t think anybody saw that coming!
Walter steps in through the ropes, the two titans of AW and UCI meeting in the ring for the first time in the match.
Jimmy Garcia: Both of these men played this one perfectly!
Gravedigger: Headbutt to Richards!
The smack of bone on bone can be heard, but the headbutt does little to phase Richards.
Jimmy Garcia: After as many concussions as Richards has shrugged off in his career, that’s doing nothing to him!
Gravedigger: His brains are scrambled alright.
Jimmy Garcia: Headbutt to Walter!
Gravedigger: Walter answers right back with another!
The crowd “boos” and “woos” as the two big men smash their skulls into one another, neither giving an inch.
Jimmy Garcia: Choke toss from Richards and Walter is sent to the corner!
Richards marches back and heads in for a big stinger splash.
Gravedigger: Walter catches him by the throat!
Jimmy Garcia: Sitout chokebomb!
Gravedigger: Walter with the pin!
Jimmy Garcia: Not even a one count from Walter!
Gravedigger: That’s a big move from a monster of a competitor!
Jimmy Garcia: Resiliency of Richards on display early!
Walter pushes to a squatting position and grabs hold of Richards, pulling him up in a crazy display of strength and lifting him high in the air for a powerbomb.
Jimmy Garcia: Richards slips behind!
Gravedigger: Insane strength and craftiness out of these two.
Richards reaches behind and gets hold of Walter’s head in neckbreaker position, but manages to hoist him up vertically somehow before falling foreward.
Jimmy Garcia: INVERTED VERTICAL SUPLEX FROM ALEX RICHARDS!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Gravedigger: Never seen a move like that before, let alone it being done to someone of Walter’s size!
Jimmy Garcia: Richards looking absolutely drained after that one as he rolls Walter over for the pin!
Gravedigger: YES! KICKUP FROM WALTER!
Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME! *CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP*
Jimmy Garcia: You’re goddamn right it is!
Gravedigger: It’s been a match of big spots and these two are keeping with the trend, raising the bar even higher along the way!
Both men manage to get to their feet somewhat quickly via adrenaline burst. Richards draws back for a haymaker but is caught head first in Walter’s grip.
Jimmy Garcia: Claw submission locked in, Richards screaming in agony from the pressure on the temples here!
Gravedigger: He could pass out right now!
Jimmy Garcia: Richards pulls him in!
Gravedigger: Belly to belly and another pin!
Jimmy Garcia: MILITARY PRESS! WALTER HAS HIS BENCHED!
Walter drops Richards behind just enough to get him off and both men are back up quickly once again. Richards pulls Walter in for another belly to belly, but Walter slips behind and launches Richards.
Gravedigger: German suplex from Walter!
Richards stumbles up and Walter gets into the position once more and hits another German, but manages to hold on this time as he pulls Richards back up.
Jimmy Garcia: Richards spins behind for a German of his own!
The crowd cheers as the two continue to trade German reversal after German reversal. After a few of these from each, Richards goes for one last German but is caught by Walter as he lashes out.
Gravedigger: Reverse headbutt!
Richards stumbles back, blood pouring out like a broken faucet from a clearly crooked and fucked up nose as Walter turns to him.
Jimmy Garcia: This is bad!
Gravedigger: MARK OF THE BEAST!
Jimmy Garcia: SPIKED SAMOAN PUNCH!
Gravedigger: BOTH MEN GO DOWN AND WE HAVE A PIN!
DING DING DING!!
Jimmy Garcia: Who won?!
The crowd buzzes as confusion fills the warehouse, the ref leans over the ropes and discusses with the ringside crew as Taylor lifts the mic to speak.
Taylor Lorde: Ladies and gentlemen, due to both mens shoulders being on the mat for the three count, the referee has told me that this match is a draw!
Gravedigger: NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!
Digger stands up from the table and yanks the mic from Taylor Lorde’s hands.
Gravedigger: NO! UNACCEPTABLE! RING THE BELL AGAIN! START THE MATCH! RING THE DAMN BELL!
The ref shrugs and calls for the match to restart and tosses the mic back towards Taylor before sitting back down next to Jimmy.
DING DING DING!
Jimmy Garcia: Looks like we’re restarting here, folks! The show goes on!
Gravedigger: We didn’t okay this show for the main event to end in a freakin’ draw! We’re gonna have a winner tonight!
The mat around Richards and Walter is a bloody, sticky mess as the blood continues to pour out from ARich’s broken nose. Both men get back to their feet, hardly able to stand, but vertical nonetheless. Richards reaches up and sets his own broken nose, much to the horror of those watching, but Walter headbutts again and causes blood to fly out in a splatter.
Jimmy Garcia: Richards digging his nails into Walter’s own flesh now!
Richards digs as deep as he can, tearing at the skin on Walter’s forehead and busting his opponent open now as well. He releases and Walter grabs at the jagged wounds as his vision blurs from his own blood.
Jimmy Garcia: SPIKED SAMOAN PUNCH!
Richards refuses to let Walter go down, gripping the back of his opponents head and laying into him with rapid fire thumbs to the throat.
Gravedigger: THIS IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!
Walter gasps for air, seemingly fighting for his life as Richards hits one Spiked Samoan Punch after the next before releasing him as Walter is left still struggling for air against the ropes.
Jimmy Garcia: Richards going for another body splash!
Gravedigger: MARK OF THE BEAST!
Jimmy Garcia: WALTER ON TOP OF RICHARDS! IS THIS IT?!
DING DING DING!!
Taylor Lorde: The winner of this match, Walter!!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
A team of medics rushes down to the ring and attempt to aid both men, neither responding as they lay motionless on the mat.
Crowd: UCI! UCI! UCI! UCI!
Gravedigger: A classic showdown comes to an end!
Jimmy Garcia: These two went to war like only they could!
The crowd continues to chant as more medics continue to flood ringside.
Gravedigger: A big thank you to everyone watching here and at home as well as Bleacher Report for hosting us! From Chicago, Illinois, this is Gravedigger and Jimmy Garcia signing off!
