We open up in a small studio with Billy and Chris Avery. Billy: Welcome to another edition of Legacy 10, and today we feature Lissie Hope!
Chris Avery: One of the most polarizing superstars to ever set foot in an Action Wrestling ring, she was also one of the fastest to climb the tallest mountain and become a two-time World Champion!
Billy: And that’s not all, Chris! She’s a two-time Woman of the Year, the second-ever All-In winner, a runner-up in Havoc Rumble, and a member of one of the most memorable tag-teams in the history of Action Wrestling - the Swallowing with Adelaide Ainsworth!
Chris Avery: Even if she’s already established one of the greatest two-year runs in history, she’s never been shy about letting us in to her deepest struggles, and that’s what makes her so compelling and so sympathetic. She’s a role model, and a champion, and a legend in the making!
Billy: So let's get to it, this is Legacy 10 featuring Lissie Hope!

Lissie Hope’s Official Arrival
Monday Night Clash (07-15-2019)
Casey Holliday vs. CC Loyal vs. Lissie Hope
"She got an ass like her mama's, call that Julia Roberts"
The opening line of Hoodie Allen's "Movie" echoes throughout the arena, drawing a wave of reflexive jeers. C.C. Loyal emerges from the back, already fuming and shouting at the audience as she makes her way down the ramp, flanked closely by her manager/spokeswoman Sophia de la Cruz and her hulking, nameless Enforcer, the former with a microphone in hand.
Adilene Floyd: Introducing—
Sophia de la Cruz: ¡Cállate, so' puta! You ain't gonna butcher my client's introduction like that. Get on, scram! Me cago en el coño de tu madre!
Adilene Floyd, annoyed but mostly confused, shakes her head and exits the ring.
C.C. slowly ascends the ring steps, pausing her ascent for a moment to shout back at a fan booing at ringside. Sophia takes a deep breath and puts a smile on her face as she addresses the crowd.
Sophia de la Cruz: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and all of you watching around the world from the comfort of your living room, it is my honor and privilege to present to you—
C.C. steps between the middle and top ropes and enters the ring, arms out like Christ on the crucifix as she falls into her corner.
Sophia de la Cruz: Comin' straight outta the five-six-one, the Capital of the Dirty South, Pahokee, Florida, weighin' in tonight at a hunnid 'n sixty-three pounds of B.D.E. give it up for the PRIDE OF PAHOKEE, the KILLA QUEEN herself, C.C. LOYAL!
The crowd erupts in a chorus of boos as her name is mentioned, and C.C. leans over the ropes and yells back at the crowd as the music dies down and her entourage take their places by her corner.
Chris Avery: Did you see Sophia de la Cruz rip that mic out of Adilene Floyd’s hand?
Billy: Smartest thing Adeline could’ve done was leave the ring when she did before The Enforcer escorted her into the fifth row via adios airlines.
Chris Avery: Who do these ladies think they are?
Billy: Obviously, they’re not the AW Cleaning Crew. Although, they might just clean Casey and Lissie’s clock.
Chris Avery: Es. . . Muy. . . Malo.
Billy: Si senor. C.C. Loyal has no time for bulls**t. This newcomer is here to prove herself against two of the most bada** women in Action Wrestling.
Chris Avery: Just what kind of strong statement will beating Casey Holliday and Lissie Hope in her debut make to the rest of Action Wrestling?
The lights dim to that familiar hue of purple. The fans immediately recognize the duplicitous sellout and begin to boo accordingly, as the entrance video begins playing on the big screen. The crackly, distorted voice of Billie Eilish is heard as the song begins from the bridge.
"I'm the baaaaaaad guy... DUH!"
The jangly dance tune is synchronized with pulsating strobe lights as Lissie Hope, now the Duchess of the Royal Family, appears from behind the curtain. Fans immediately begin raining down boos and Lissie stands at the top of the ramp, fanning with her hands, relishing in the new negative attention. She closes her eyes for a few seconds and inhales deeply, really antagonizing them. As the song inches towards the verse, Lissie opens her eyes. Awakened.
"I like it when you take control / Even if you know that you don't own me / I'll let you play the role / I'll be your animal"
Lissie confidently strides down the ramp, punctuating every step by jawing at the front-row fans. She reaches the middle of the ramp and one sign grabs her attention: it says "Lissie... NOPE!" and Lissie takes a second to laugh in the betrayed fan's face.
Chris Avery: Man, Lissie looks all business out here tonight as well, especially after what transpired last week on Clash, Billy.
Billy: The Hollywood Elite forming and making a statement last week was a thing of beauty, my friend.
Chris Avery: No, no, no, not this Hollywood Elite bullsh*t again!
Billy: Language Christopher! We aren’t in France. Pardon your French.
She then starts reading more signs, really hyping up her new villainy by mouthing "you see that?" at the camera. She gets to one that says "TRAITOR!" and pulls the poster board out of the girl's hands, ripping it up and tossing it back in her face.
"So you're a tough guy / Like it really rough guy / Just can't get enough guy / Chest always so puffed guy"
Lissie reaches ringside and rolls underneath the bottom rope, hopping up to her feet. She skips over to the corner and ascends the second rope, inviting all of the negativity from the people who once cheered her on. She closes her eyes again, savoring the moment.
"I'm that bad type / Make your momma sad type / Make your girlfriend mad type / Might seduce your dad type / I'm the baaaaaaad guy... DUH!"
The bridge fades to a hush as hops back down into the ring, ready to get the match started.
Chris Avery: Did you see the friction between The Queen and The Duchess last week on Clash?
Billy: Now don’t you start with that fake news bullsh*t about alleged problems within The Royal Family. Kennedy and Lissie are fine. They just want AW Championship Gold like every other wrestler in the business.
Chris Avery: What about the friction between The Royal Family, Kyle Kemp, QDT, Wade Moor, and Walter?
Billy: Freakin’ Bloody ‘ell Commoners, Gov’nor.
The crowd cheers as the riffs of “Sick Like Me” by In This Moment hits the speakers. After about a minute, Casey Holliday walks out through the curtains and the first thing that is noticeable is her confidence as she walks down the ramp.
Adilene Floyd: Making her way to the ring weighing in at 125 lbs, standing at 5’5”, hailing from Bellevue, Washington. She's Ms. All-In, CASEY HOLLIDAY!
When she enters the ring, she acknowledges the cheering crowd, which only serves to incite them to cheer her louder as she confidently All-In briefcase above her head. Casey has a laugh to herself at this, as she starts to focus on her match and the song fades.
Chris Avery: There are quite a few people intimidated by the presence of a very strong independent women like C.C. Loyal and Lissie Holliday. None, more so than, Ms. All-In, Casey Holliday.
Billy: That’s the smartest thing that you’ve said all night. You doing okay, Christopher?
Chris Avery: Fine Billy. I’m talking about people like AW World Champion Ryan Lockhart. He’s been jealous of Casey’s success. And some would say that Casey’s edged out Ryan for Wrestler of the Year.
Billy: And rightfully so. The road to Uprising hasn’t been smooth sailing for Ms. All-In lately as compared to Lockhart’s run as AW World Champion.
Chris Avery: We’re not gonna mention that Filipino Trainwreck are we?
Billy: Ummm, you said it, not me, Christopher. But I’m talking about what happened during that 5-man and 1-lady match last week. The insecurities of Michael X reared its ugly head when he shined on his teammates and turned on Alex and Casey. This choke and puke artist claims to be a main eventer but he sure is acting like that guy that wrote that book. You know the one I’m talking about?
Chris Avery: The Book of eXtreme?
Billy: He knew his book of wishy-washy was missing some major plot lines as far as The Hollywood Elite were concerned and chose the easy way out by attacking Holliday and screwing over Richards unimpeded run for the World Title at Carnage.
Chris Avery: Not them again?
As Casey, C.C., and Lissie stand in the squared circle like they’re in the final scene of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, Lissie gives Casey her “fuck it” look and runs toward the rookie. They lock in a collar and elbow tie-up, but not for long, C.C. tosses Lissie halfway across the ring. Lissie rolls back towards the corner with a look of surprise on her face.
Chris Avery: Did you just see the power of C.C. Loyal?
Billy: Are we watching the same match? C.C. Just tossed Lissie like she was a rag doll livin’ in a movie, hot tramp, Daddy’s little cutie.
Chris Avery & Billy (singing like Steven Tyler) : RAG-DOLL!
Casey smirks at Lissie and runs toward her then b-lines it towards the rookie. They lock in a collar and elbow tie-up, but not for long, because C.C. tosses Casey halfway across the ring like she did Lissie. And Casey rolls back towards the other far corner opposite Lissie with a look of surprise on her face.
Chris Avery: C.C.’s turned her back on both Casey and Lissie and starts goading the crowd like, like. . .
Billy: Godzilla after remodeling Tokyo. Could be quite a predictable rookie mistake, Christopher?
With C.C. arrogance showing while goading the fans into a feeding frenzy, Casey and Lissie hop to their feet, look at each other, and perform a double drop kick, Rock N’ Roll Express style, sending C.C. over the top rope. They look at each other as if about to high-five, but simultaneously, bitch-slap each other.
Chris Avery: So much for teamwork. . .
Billy: Bros before Hoes, Christopher.
Lissie arm whips Casey towards the ropes, Casey comes slingshotting off the ropes, Lissie comes slingshotting off the opposite ropes, and they meet in a train style trainwreck collision in the center of the ring. They looked like the knew what each other were going to do and telegraphed each other’s move. Meanwhile, C.C. slides back into the ring and takes advantage of the situation by delivering kicks and stomps on the prone Casey and Lissie.
Chris Avery: C.C.’s got a handful of Casey’s hair and making her look eye to eye and saying something to her is español. ¿Hablas español?
Billy: No comprende, por favor. ¡Ay, caramba! Lissie just uppercuts C.C. in the nether regions. I think every man, woman, and child felt that!
C.C. drops to her knees. Enziguri by Lissie. Reverse swinging neckbreaker on Lissie by Casey. Somersault Leg Drop on C.C. and Casey goes for the cover.
One. . .
Two. . .
Easy kickout by C.C. Stiff punches and heavy kicks to the lower limbs of Casey by Lissie. Lissie has the advantage now. Lissie with an eye rake on Casey and sends her slingshotting off the ropes, Lissie goes for a lariat, Casey ducks under lands a Forward Russian Leg Sweep on Lissie and goes for the cover. . .
One. . .
Two. . .
Easy kickout by Lissie. C.C. slingshots Casey into the corner followed up by an avalanche. Seven Seconds in Heaven. Stinkface on Casey. Sophia starts strangling Casey with her belt. C.C. conceals the crime from the referee with her extra large and proud plus sized woman’s figure. The A-Bomb. C.C. Banzai Drops Casey but before she can land the maneuver, Lissie comes out of nowhere and lands a Tornado DDT from off the turnbuckle. Lissie goes for the cover on C.C.
One. . .
Two. . .
Chris Avery: Broken up by Casey!
Billy: Holliday with a Handspring Elbow Smash on Lissie out of nowhere fast.
Chris Avery: Amazing.
Billy: At the very least. Casey and Lissie aren’t a team but they’re showing a sign of mutual respect for each other’s talent.
Casey and Lissie are rolling around the ring like two long lost love struck lovers, but in reality, they’re biting, clawing, scratching, and plain and simply, cat-fighting like two feral cats.
Chris Avery: The referee should be stepping into to break-up this. . .
Billy: Are you crazy, Christopher? Rule #1. Never break up a CATFIGHT! CATFIGHT! CATFIGHT!
Casey and Lissie make their way back up to their feet and separate on their own accord. They start circling each other while blowing their frazzled hair out of their own faces. And these two two feral cats go right back at it. Lissie with a snapmare and an added kick for good measure to Casey’s spine. Casey grabs her lower back as Lissie moves in for the kill. She grabs Casey with a handful of hair but Casey counters with an Enzuigiri.
Chris Avery: Casey goes for a Senton Bomb from the top rope. . .
Billy: SHITFIRE HURRICANRANAFRANKENSTEINER!
Chris Avery: C. C. catches Casey with a. . .
Billy: SHITFIRE HURRICANRANAFRANKENSTEINER!
Lissie from behind, hooks on a modified Dragon Sleeper on C.C. and goes for a quick Five-Star Frog Splash and goes for the pin.
One. . .
Two. . .
C.C. with a foot on the rope. Casey with a Single Knee Facebuster on Lissie and hooks in an Elevated Boston Crab, named after the G.O.A.T. QB Tom Brady for putting every NFL fan into a crabby mood, with her knee on back of neck. Stealing the play from The Lissie Hope Playbook. But back to the action. . . wrestling. Sophia de la Cruz jumps onto the ring apron and distracts the referee. C.C. eye gouges Casey and follows that up with a Samoan Drop. Sophia de la Cruz pushes the referee back and trips over Lissie as C. C. goes for the pin.
One. . .
Two. . .
Casey gets up and grabs CC and goes for a DDT but Lissie grabs Casey and throws her into the corner! Lissie runs into the corner but Casey moves and Lissie hits hard and stays put!
Casey comes out and grabs CC and goes for the finish!
Billy: HERE WE GO!
Casey picks up CC but she drops behind her! Casey goes for a clothesline but CC ducks!
Casey turns around as Lissie runs out of the corner and hits a spear on Casey Holliday JUST as CC hits BLACK OUT IN A KICK on Casey at THE SAME TIME!
CC and Lissie fall on Casey!
The ref counts!
DING DING DING...??
The ref stands up.. and Lissie and CC both look at each other.. and then the ref.. and the ref grabs CCs arm..
Then grabs Lissies arm.. and the ref is confused in his own right.. and he just raises both of their arms..
Billy: THEY BOTH JUST PINNED CASEY HOLLIDAY?!
Chris Avery: WHAT THE HELL!
Billy: WHAT A SHITFIRE DEBUT FOR CC LOYAL!!
Chris Avery: WHAT AN UPSET VICTORY FOR LISSIE HOPE!
Billy: WHAT IS GOING ON TONIGHT?! THIS CLASH IS SO WEIRD! Chris Avery: I DONT GET IT!
Lissie gets out of the ring and celebrates as CC celebrates in her own right in the other corner and finally both women make their way up the ramp a few feet apart..
That's when cameras pick up Michael X walking down the ramp in jeans and a shirt with cut off sleeves. He walks right passed them..
Billy: Wait, what now?
Michael X walks around the ring and moves one of the producers to the side and grabs a steel chair and slides it into the ring. Michael X takes a second and looks and notices her All-In briefcase. He grabs it and slides it in the ring too.
Chris Avery: X! Don't do this!
He gets into the ring and grabs the briefcase and opens it up.
Michael X spits in the briefcase and closes it. He lays it down and picks up her head.
Billy: NOOO.. NO..
He lays the briefcase down and lays her head on top of it as if it's a pillow.
Michael X grabs the steel chair and stands directly above her..
Billy: DO NOT DO THIS!!
Chris Avery: HE CAN KILL HER RIGHT HERE!
Michael X folds out the steel chair.
He sits down right next to her.
He looks down at Casey Holliday still knocked out cold.

Passing the Torch
Monday Night CruiserClash (02-22-2021)
Battle Of Women Lissie Hope vs. Regan Voorhees
A gunshot echoes across the arena, followed by a second of silence before “Leader of the Pack” kicks in. A red glow bathes the arena, a single crimson spotlight tracking on the entryway over Regan Voorhees. The Duchess of Pork stands with her head bowed, a translucent white raincoat over her ring gear. Behind her back, she clutches a red croquet mallet.
Adilene Floyd: Making her way to the ring, from standing 5’6 and weighing 131 pounds… out of Birmingham, Alabama… REEEEEEEEGAN VOOOOOOOORHEES!
Jimmy Garcia: Oh boy, this is going to be a tremendous match, JJ! We know what Lissie Hope can do, and we’ve caught glimpses of just how excellent Regan Voorhees can be!
JJ Biggs: This can be the ultimate star-making performance is Regan can shake out whatever nerves she has to pull this off!
Jimmy Garcia: If she has any nerves at all, she’s doing an incredible job of hiding them, JJ!
Regan looks up, eyes glinting with malice, as she glares at the ring. Her right hand pulls back the hood of her raincoat, revealing a mane of shoulder length blond hair. The croquet mallet dangles in her left hand for a moment, before she positions it over her shoulder and begins her walk to the ring. She glances occasionally to the crowd before turning her eyes away in abject disgust. At ringside, she climbs the steps and steps through the ropes. Giving her mallet a kiss for luck, she twirls it in her fingers before resting it across her shoulder once again. A wicked grin creeps across as her lips as she poses for the crowd, before advancing to her corner.
“I’m the baaaaad guy…”
Billie Eilish’s “bad guy” hits the speakers and the fans are going absolutely nuts. The girls in the audience sing along to the music, dance along to the beats, holding up their signs of appreciation for the one and only Lissie Hope!
Adilene Floyd: Making her way to the ring, standing 5’5” and weighing 135 pounds… from New Orleans, Louisiana… THE HEROINE OF ACTION WRESTLING… LISSSSSSIIIIEEEEE HOOOOOOOOOPEEEEE!
Finally, the curtains spread to reveal the two-time World Champion, the two-time Woman of the Year! She has a hop in her step as she moves from one end of the stage to the other, revving up the fans! Hundreds of signs of support line the crowd - “Welcome back, Lissie!” and “Heroine!” and other variants - and Lissie takes a moment on the top of the stage to really soak it all in.
Jimmy Garcia: And here she comes, JJ! I’m so sad that we will only have her on CruiserClash for a couple more weeks!
JJ Biggs: We don’t know that yet, Jimmy! She hasn’t made a decision either way! But what we do know is what’s right in front of us -- Lissie Hope versus Regan Voorhees, next!
Jimmy Garcia: With just one week away from Battlefield, this is bound to put these ladies in a position to make an effect on the big show!
JJ Biggs: Let’s get this thing started!
Lissie Hope slowly descends down the ramp, slapping hands with the fans in the front rows. Some of the younger girls have tears in their eyes as Lissie stops to speak a few words to some of them. Sitting at ringside are the four administrators of the Lissie Hope Fan Club, wearing t-shirts donning their name and country of origin - Naomi from Brazil, Caitlin from Great Britain, Bai from China, and of course, the former Cruiserweight Champion, Mae from South Africa. Lissie pauses to speak to all of them, her biggest fans. Finally, she slides underneath the bottom rope and raises her arms to the adoring crowd!
Jimmy Garcia: Look at the venom spewing from Regan’s eyes! She’s entirely focused on Lissie right now, not letting the big stage intimidate her!
JJ Biggs: It’s going to take 100% focus to pin Lissie Hope! She’s wrestled in over 60 matches in Action Wrestling with a win-rate of around 70%!
Jimmy Garcia: But right now, that’s not the story. Lissie wants to see the women on this roster reach for their biggest goals, and she wants to be someone they can draw inspiration from.
JJ Biggs: But as we all know, nobody is more competitive than Lissie Hope. She would run herself into dehydration if it meant shedding a millisecond off of her fastest sprint!
Jimmy Garcia: Let’s get this underway!
Lissie Hope and Regan Voorhees start the match out in the middle of the ring facing each other. On the outside, Miss Mae claps with enthusiasm for Lissie, calling out to her with a loud “BEAT THIS BITCH, LISSIE!” Lissie turns to Mae, and puts her hands up, telling Mae to chill. She turns back to Regan, who sees the opening and runs at Lissie, taking out her knee from behind with a chop block! The bell rings as Regan advances, pinning Lissie under the corner turnbuckle with her boot right in Lissie’s throat!
Jimmy Garcia: Very opportunistic start for Regan here tonight!
JJ Biggs: She knows she has to take any opening she sees! It’s smart strategy!
Regan pulls Lissie up and quickly tries to lock in her standing crossface chickenwing, causing the former World Champion to begin to push her away, but Lissie fights through it. Lissie ducks under a lariat, spins around Regan looking to hit a German suplex. But Regan tears away, ducking underneath a lariat by Lissie, and then planting Lissie on the ground with a side suplex! The pace doesn’t slow down, as both Lissie and Regan get back to their feet, with Lissie shaking off the cobwebs. Regan comes in with a short arm clothesline, but Lissie ducks underneath. Lissie connects with a roundhouse kick to Regan’s gut. Regan tries to hit an elbow, but Lissie drops a toe hold on her, bringing her down to the mat.
Jimmy Garcia: These two are so quick, and the arena is buzzing!
JJ Biggs: And Lissie is trying to take control here!
Lissie transitions into a heel hook, and Regan quickly scurries towards the safety of the bottom rope, breaking the hold. Both women get back to their feet again, taking a second to catch their breath, listening to the rising orchestra of the crowd’s cheers. Lissie smiles and Regan even takes a second to appreciate the ovation. Lissie charges forward, but Regan grabs Lissie’s arm and takes her down with an arm drag. Regan keeps a hold on Lissie’s arm and pulls her to her feet, and pulls her into a forearm strike to the side of the head. Regan then hooks both of Lissie’s arms and drops her on her head with a double arm DDT. Regan stands up and drops an elbow on Lissie’s chest, before getting back to her feet and doing it again. Regan then leans back into the ropes, before jumping up, and dropping a knee across Lissie’s face.
Jimmy Garcia: And now Regan Voorhees is well in control!
Lissie rolls back to her feet, and walks right into a running calf kick from Regan, that makes her fall into the corner. Regan rushes into her and hits her in the chest with the jumping back elbow. Lissie stumbles out of the corner, only to have Regan give her a hard boot in the gut, a fistful of hair and slams her back into the corner. She delivers a series of backhanded chops, but the crowd erupts when Lissie fights back with a european uppercut. But Regan gets a tiny bit frustrated and halts Lissie’s recovery momentum by jabbing her in the throat. She then uses Lissie’s face and rubs it along the top rope, before planting her down with a bridging fisherman’s suplex!
JJ Biggs: The cover!
Jimmy Garcia: Near fall there, but the former World Champion gets her shoulder up!
Regan runs into the ropes, rebounding back as Lissie gets into a kneeling position, and connects with a missile dropkick to Lissie’s face!
JJ Biggs: She’s nearly knocked out cold!
But Regan doesn’t go for the cover; instead, she tries to trap Lissie in the Indian deathlock!
Jimmy Garcia: Hell’s Belle wants to put a hurting on the Heroine!
Lissie works her way over to the ropes, and manages to wrap her legs around the bottom, forcing Regan to release the hold. Regan face-stomps the downed Lissie, and pushes her with her boot, which knocks her to the outside in front of the announce table. Regan rolls out of the ring to follow her. Regan lifts Lissie up, and looks over to Mae sitting at ringside, and says something inaudible to her. She has Lissie in a powerslam position, and runs at the turnbuckle, trying to drive Lissie’s spine into the steel!
JJ Biggs: Reversal!
Lissie fights out of it and uses Regan’s own momentum to push her head first into the turnpost!
Jimmy Garcia: Regan needs to focus on the match! Remember, you have to be on your game 100-percent!
An exhausted Lissie rolls Regan into the ring and follows her in, measuring for strikes at Regan several times knocking her back. Lissie leans back, and rushes forward, only to have Regan sidestep and hit a drop toe hold, hooking Lissie on the middle rope in front of Mae! Regan steps back and runs at Lissie, performing a leg drop on Lissie, her neck still caught on the middle rope! Regan lands all the way on the outside as Lissie is still resting with her upper body on the middle rope. On the outside, Regan looks up at Lissie as she hears the crowd rhymically clapping and chanting “Lissie! Lissie!”, a cheer started up by Miss Mae! Regan Voorhees listens to the crowds chants and then looks back at Lissie still hooked on the rope. To the shock and dismay of everyone, Regan gives Lissie a hard SMACK across the face!
Jimmy Garcia: Well if there was any mutual respect here, I think that’s done for!
Lissie is knocked back into the middle of the ring as Regan enters, looking to finish this out with the Red Camellia octopus hold! She’s got it halfway locked in, but Lissie powers herself out of it. She tries a desperation clothesline, but Regan ducks underneath. Regan tries a neckbreaker, but Lissie holds her ground and spins out of it. Lissie has a burst of energy and bounces off the ropes, looking to hit her spear, but Regan sidesteps it and sends Lissie crashing into the corner!
JJ Biggs: Another series of fast-paced reversals and counters!
Jimmy Garcia: But Lissie is not in good shape! Regan Voorhees has dominated this one!
Lissie backpedals, still seeing stars, and right into Regan’s Red Camellia octopus hold! Dead set in the center of the ring!
Jimmy Garcia: She’s got it locked in!
JJ Biggs: There’s nothing Lissie can do here…
And she can’t! Lissie taps! Lissie taps!
Adilene Floyd: Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of this match… REEEEEEEGAN VOOOOOORHEEEEEES!!!
There is a stunned silence in the crowd as Regan Voorhees finally lets go of the hold. She rises to her feet and looks at the fallen Lissie Hope, the magnitude of this victory still hasn’t dawned on her. Regan’s music is playing in the background as Lissie is slowly getting to her knees, watching as Regan backpedals up the ramp.
Jimmy Garcia: This is the biggest win in Regan’s short Action Wrestling career so far! She completely DOMINATED Lissie tonight!
JJ Biggs: I can’t believe what we just witnessed, Jimmy! We said this match was going to be a star-maker, and I believe we’ve just seen it! This is the official arrival of REGAN VOORHEES!
Regan is still slowly backpedaling up the ramp as Lissie pulls herself up in the corner. Lissie finally realizes that the match is over, that Regan Voorhees has picked up the momentous win… and then Lissie nods her head at Regan, before starting to clap for her! Lissie then encourages the crowd to clap for Regan too, who is unnerved and surprised by the ovation, by the show of respect from the former World Champion. Regan reaches the top of the ramp, the gracious claps and cheers now picking up steam. Regan stands at the top of the ramp, still staring at Lissie in the ring, and nods her head -- a little acknowledgement of gratitude.
Jimmy Garcia: I have no idea what this means for Regan Voorhees, but this is the type of win that can springboard someone!
JJ Biggs: I think we’re all a little shocked that this happened, Jimmy! But now we’re on notice… Regan Voorhees is here to stay!
Lissie rolls out of the ring and speaks to Mae at ringside, who hops over the barrier and starts to escort Lissie up the ramp.
Minos: It is now time for our main event of the evening!! Are you ready?
*A "Fuck Yeah" cheer comes from the crowd. In spite of how long tonight's show has been, the New York fans have proven that they're from the city that never sleeps.*
Minos: This match is scheduled for one fall, and will be for the GCWA Heavyweight Championship of the World!! Introducing first, the challenger...
*The downtempo bass drops. The trap-heavy outro of Billie Eilish's "bad guy" floods the arena, the booming shaking the seats underneath each audience member. They rise to their feet in anticipation of the arrival of Action Wrestling's former two-time World Champion and All-In Briefcase holder, Lissie Hope.*
I like when you get mad.
*The GCWA crowd is mesmerized but still conflicted, knowing the full capabilities of Lissie Hope but still showing caution, as they are unsure just how committed she is towards adapting to this environment. But with a personal invitation to join a tournament to crown a World Championship, deep down Lissie Hope does feel wanted. She does feel desired. And that's a feeling she hasn't had in quite a long time.*
You said she's scared of me?
*Finally, the curtains spread and Lissie Hope emerges at the top of the entrance stage, standing for a moment and taking in the mixed fan reaction. She still has a legion of support, mainly from the young female demographic who have followed her career and watched her ascend to the moon, being a mainstay in Women's wrestling. But there is still trepidation, as Lissie Hope, in the moment, is an outsider. She slowly saunters down the stage, not really acknowledging any of the jeers thrown in her direction.*
I'm the bad guy.
*She enters the ring, wearing a cut-off "Villain" tee-shirt, and black and red workout pants. Though she has held the belt on two occasions, she looks down at her empty waistline and with her hands, brushes her fingers along her waist to show the outline of a championship belt. She removes the Villain t-shirt, exposing her upper ring apparel, and tosses it to the timekeeper, slowly climbing up the staircase and pausing to pose for the ringside fans.*
Minos: Ladies and gentlemen, from New Orleans, Louisiana and weighing 135 pounds... the winner of the Warriors of the Ring V Tournament... "THE BLACKHEART"... LISSSSSSIEEEE HOOOOOOPE!
*The crowd is clearly energized, seeing a female wrestler in the main event of a GCWA Pay-Per-View.*
Rockwell: Hope's been through a lot this last month, including losing her brother, Robbie. But she's now posed for possibly one of the biggest victories of her career, a defining moment!
Hood: Only if she wins tonight, Adrian. Only if she wins.
Rockwell: We know there is some animosity between Hope and O'Connor, especially after Hope's recent radio broadcast, but tonight will be the first time they actually go at it!
Hood: Talk about a rarity in the wrestling business! By now, they've usually had a dozen knock-down, drag-out brawls...
Rockwell: Not this time! We've kept it all for tonight!
Minos: And her opponent...
*The lights all black out.*
Hood: Great! What now?!
Rockwell: I'm sure it's nothing.
*After a moment, a single spotlight switches on and illuminates a small portion of the stage. A man steps into the spotlight. The crowd explodes into cheers.*
Hood: Is that...
Rockwell: It is! Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs is in Madison Square Garden!
*Puff Daddy lifts a microphone to his lips.*
Puff Daddy: New York City! Let me hear you!
*The crowd explodes into cheers again. A quiet musical crescendo begins to slowly build.*
Puff Daddy: Her opponent... standing 6'3" and weighing 220 pounds... Hailing from Brooklyn, New York! That's right, right here in New York City!
*The crowd gives a quick pop for their hometown.*
Puff Daddy: Here he is! Your undefeated, undisputed, reigning Heavyweight Champion of the World... Mack motherfuckin' O'Connor!
*Fireworks begin firing off from all corners of the stage, lighting up the dark arena. The instrumental to "Hate Me Now" by Nas begins blaring across the arena. After a moment, Mack steps out onto the stage. He's wearing cross trainer shoes, loose black warm-up pants, and a black hoodie while the World Title belt is secure around his waist. He stands at the center of the stage, rolling his shoulders and swinging his arms to limber up, staring down at Lissie Hope the entire time. Treat Cassidy stands at a distance behind him. As the musical hook resets, Puff Daddy lifts the microphone to his lips again...*
Puff Daddy: You can hate me now... But I won't stop now...
Cuz I can't stop now... You can hate me now...
But I won't stop now... Cuz I can't stop now...
You can hate me now... You can hate me nowwwww...
*More fireworks explode from the stage, garnering another loud round of cheers. Then, Brooklyn native Nas Escobar steps out onto the stage behind Mack. Mack slowly begins walking down the ramp, taking his time, with Nas and Puff Daddy taking the flanks behind him and Treat following from a distance behind them. Nas also carries a microphone, raising it to his lips to recite one of the verses...*
*A crescendo in the music hits, more fireworks exploding as Mack slides into the ring. Puff Daddy and Nas follow him in, opting to take the steps and ducking through the ropes. Treat also follows them in. The hook of the chorus begins again, with Mack pacing the ring as Puff Daddy and Nas continue to perform around him.*
*One last barrage of fireworks explodes from the four corners of the ring as the music stops. The crowd erupts into cheers at all the New York natives. As the crowd cheers, both Puff Daddy and Nas bump fists with Mack before leaving the ring and moving back up the ramp.*
Rockwell: You can't say they don't know how to rile up the crowd.
Hood: I would have preferred actual music.
*Treat and Mack exchange a few words, Mack handing Treat the World Title belt. Mack also removes the hoodie and hands it to Treat, leaving him in his warm-ups and a black tank top.*
Rockwell: The last time Mack and Treat were next to each other near a ring, Mack knocked him unconscious. Its a change to see them getting along tonight.
Hood: We still have time to see Mack come to his senses and do it again.
*Treat gives a few more words of encouragement to Mack before leaving the ring and stepping out of harms way. Mack looks out across the crowd, then focuses in on Lissie Hope in the opposite corner*
Rockwell: Many are labeling this a dream match. Two undefeated stars from two different generations going at it!
Hood: I've been a fan of Mack for a long time, but Lissie Hope is hungry for that championship run!
Rockwell: But can she knock off the standard bearer of the GCWA since March and end his 154-day reign as champion?
*The Bell Rings, signaling the beginning of this epic main event.*
Rockwell: It's time to get started!
Hood: If Lissie loses here, she ends the run of Warriors of the Ring winners getting the championship!
Rockwell: The pressure is on!
*O'Connor looks cocky as always as he sizes up Hope. He still doesn't look tremendously impressed. He walks towards her, telling her to stop getting too into the moment. It's go time. Hope smiles back at him, a dangerous look. She then snaps a right hand forward, catching O'Connor in the jaw!! O'Connor takes a step back, before rubbing a hand across his mouth, still smiling. He shrugs, saying he's a little impressed, before dishing out a shot of his own, snapping Hope backwards!! Hope regains her balance, nodding to herself as she shakes off the hit. O'Connor asks if they're going to do this, and Hope immediately comes in with an elbow to the side of the head, followed by several strikes to the body. She adds in a couple of kicks to the legs for good measure, staggering the champion. Hope then grabs O'Connor by the arm, looking to snap him across to the ropes, but O'Connor stops her, instead ramming forward with a shoulder, knocking Hope onto her back! O'Connor looks down at her, then yanks her back up, planning to lift her into the air. But Hope pulls free, landing next to O'Connor. She quickly grabs O'Connor by the head and spins down with a swinging neckbreaker!!*
Rockwell: You can just see early on how competitive this match is going to be!
Hood: I think O'Connor's going to learn respect for Hope as this one goes on. But I don't know if Hope will ever feel the same.
Rockwell: She said a lot of rumors on the radio about O'Connor, especially about drug abuse. As far as I know, that's not the case.
Hood: Mack's got one love, and that's alcohol. Although the way his liver is, he really needs to get himself a divorce from that addiction...
*Hope has gotten O'Connor back up now, peppering him with a some stiff punches to get him back to the ropes. Hope then goes up, using the ropes, and kicking off of them to land a tornado DDT! She makes the first cover of the match... 1... 2.. and O'Connor easily kicks himself free. He sits up, starting to rise, even as Hope kips up to her feet. She's pumped as she goes back into the ropes and springs back, running towards O'Connor... who turns and catches her, spinning her fully around his body before dropping her with a full rotation sidewalk slam!!! The crowd pops, as O'Connor gets on top for the loose cover... 1... 2.. and Hope shoves her arm up in plenty of time. O'Connor, not surprised, gets to his feet with Hope in tow, shooting her towards the ropes. She comes back, with O'Connor trying a clothesline, only for Hope to run right underneath it. She hits the ropes and rebounds quickly, flying back to try a bicycle kick to the chest! But O'Connor avoids it, stepping to the side while grabbing onto Hope's foot, yanking hard enough on it to drop Hope to her back! She tries to kick free, but O'Connor gets the other foot as well... and then starts to spin, giving Hope a ride with a giant swing!!*
Rockwell: Around and around and around she goes!
Hood: Where she stops, only Mack knows!
*After several rotations, making a few people in the audience a little queasy from watching it, O'Connor finally lets go, sending Hope flying into one of the corners of Ring #1! O'Connor drops to a knee, looking pretty dizzy himself. But, having been there many times before, he's able to recover quickly, getting back up. He works his way over to where Hope is trying to rise, holding her head to get the world to stop spinning. O'Connor quickly grabs her, lifting the lighter wrestler onto one shoulder. He looks around at the crowd, giving them a knowing shrug, before starting forward, delivering a spinning powerslam in the center of the ring!! The crowd loves it, but don't appear to be biting yet as O'Connor makes the cover... 1... 2... and Hope kicks out just as expected, having plenty of fight left. O'Connor gets up, taking a moment to look out at where Treat is sitting, as if asking him when the real fight is coming like Treat promised. Treat tells him to get back to work, so O'Connor turns back and grabs Hope by the hair, dragging her up... only to go back down as Hope latches on and gets a snap suplex, putting O'Connor down and giving her a few moments to recover!*
Rockwell: Due to her size, Hope was underestimated throughout the Warriors of the Ring Tournament. But here she is, only a 3 count away from the World Title!
Hood: She'd better not have used up all her luck to get here!
Rockwell: I truly don't believe luck had anything to do with it...
Hood: She had the easiest draw in the tournament, we all saw it!
*Both wrestlers start to rise at the same time, with O'Connor staggering over towards Hope. But she immediately counters with a spinning back elbow, blasting O'Connor and putting him on his back!! Hope snaps her hair back out of her face, knowing that this is something that O'Connor never has to worry about. She grabs him by the arm, dragging him to his feet. O'Connor responds with a shot of his own, sending Hope reeling back into the ropes between the rings. Hope shakes it off, seeing O'Connor rushing over towards her for a shoulder tackle. But Hope catches O'Connor with a knee to the gut, stopping him in his tracks, then grabs hold of him to deliver a Muay Thai Clinch, delivering a series of devastating knee strikes!! With O'Connor dazed, Hope knocks him against the ropes, then runs forward, landing a clothesline that sends O'Connor up and over to the other ring!! Hope follows, stepping through the ropes, continuing to go after the champ. The referee hesitates for a moment, shrugs, and then follows them into Ring #2, instead of starting a count. Hope is now on top of O'Connor, delivering some strikes, as the match goes on!*
Hood: Hold on, is that legal?
Rockwell: It's an official ring, and the official official went with them, so I suppose so...
Hood: Well, that's going to make the fans around Ring #2 happy, at least...
*Hope has O'Connor back up now, working him over in the corner. She goes up above him, punching away, trying to knock the cockiness from him. The fans count along to 10, before Hope finally jumps off. She looks over to where Treat Cassidy is standing outside the ring, shrugging just like Mack and asking if this is all he's got. Treat shakes his head, as Hope turns back to O'Connor... who rushes out of the corner, spearing her down!! O'Connor gets on top, slugging away, getting some fire back! With Hope in trouble, O'Connor slowly brings her up, using several jabs to keep her stunned. He then knocks her into the ropes and shoots her across the ring. As Hope comes back, O'Connor lowers his shoulder, only for Hope to kick him in the chest, knocking him back. Hope then smiles and charges forward, leaping into him... but O'Connor catches Hope in his arms, looking left and right before launching her with a Fallaway Slam!! Hope crashes hard to the mat, rolling out and under the ropes to the outside, as O'Connor takes a few seconds to catch his breath. He rubs his side, clearly feeling some pain there, but he shrugs it off, going back after Hope.*
Rockwell: I hope that's not O'Connor's liver acting up.
Hood: Can you feel it when that happens?
Rockwell: I have no clue. I'm not a doctor, and I don't even play one on TV.
Hood: Hey, uh, these guys are getting a little closer to us...
Rockwell: Get yourself ready, Hood!
*O'Connor has brought Hope near the announce table, taking a second to nod to Hood, a man he's known a fairly long time. Hood nods back, while taking off his headset to be prepared to run. O'Connor then goes to bash Hope's head into the table, but Hope blocks it, then reverses it, knocking O'Connor into the table instead!! O'Connor, stunned, slumps on the table, even as Hope tells Rockwell to get the hell out of her way. Rockwell does so, as Hope clears off a few items off the table before grabbing O'Connor and pulling him up. She locks O'Connor up, wanting to make a statement by delivering the Crown of Thorns (Pedigree) on the announce table!! She goes to lift... and O'Connor back drops her off the American table and sending her crashing onto the Spanish announce table!!! The fans feel Hope's pain, especially since the table didn't give way! O'Connor gets off his knees on the American announce table, turning back to where Hope is straining her back in agony from the fall. He heads over to her, quickly grabbing her to haul her up... and he delivers a Claymore (Rock Bottom with Both Arms Hooked) on the table, breaking through it!!!! The crowd erupts, as the two wrestlers lay in the debris outside.*
Rockwell: Oh my God!
Hood: I'm SO glad that wasn't our table! Suck it, Spanish guys!
Rockwell: This one might be over, as Hope just took a horrendous shot!!
*The referee, still standing in Ring #2, has been stalling on his count, but he's had no choice but to get it going. He reaches 3 as O'Connor rolls out of the debris pile, shrugging off some wooden shrapnel on his arm. He gets to his feet, slowly walking over to the ring and rolling himself inside, probably thinking about how good an IPA would taste right about now. The referee acknowledges the champion, then turns back to look at Lissie Hope, continuing to count upwards. The fans are trying to chant for Lissie, wanting her to get up. Nobody wants to see a main event end in a countout. Slowly, Hope sits up, groaning, her ribs likely compromised from the landing she took. As the referee reaches 6, Hope starts to stand, stumbling towards the ring. 7, 8... Hope reaches the apron, grasping as it as if it's a lifeline. 9... Hope pulls herself inside, avoiding the loss! O'Connor, now standing nearby, nods in approval, but has no mercy for her, immediately going on the attack with stomps and kicks, looking to soften her up for the final plunge.*
Rockwell: This one's not over officially, but Hope's got to be in a bad way!
Hood: She needs to shake it off if she doesn't want this opportunity wasted!
Rockwell: You can't just 'shake off' being thrown through a table...
Hood: Wrestlers do it all the time! I've seen them!
*Hope is crawling away now, trying to reach the ropes for some help in getting up. O'Connor is following behind her, waiting as she pulls herself up. O'Connor then rushes her, clotheslining Hope over the ropes and sending her into Ring #1 again! O'Connor steps through after her, grabbing her by the hair, and once again the referee follows behind, having no problems with the change of venue. O'Connor smiles at Hope, telling her she had a good run, before grabbing her by the head and going for the Hollow Point (Stunner To Temple)!!! But Hope shoves him off in time, sending O'Connor off-balance towards the ropes! O'Connor rights himself, turns, and runs back at Hope, annoyed. But she spins into a Roundhouse Kick to the head, knocking O'Connor out!! Hope then collapses to the mat, hurting, having bought herself a little breathing room. O'Connor rolls instinctively onto his stomach, then keeps rolling, going underneath the ropes to end up outside the ring. He takes a knee out there, with Treat coming close by to ask if he's okay. O'Connor appears to think this is a stupid question, and doesn't bother answering it.*
Hood: So we're back in Ring #1, back to the beginning!
Rockwell: Hope's still got some fight left, even if she's hurting...
Hood: Well, she'd better continue that fight, because she's letting O'Connor recuperate himself right now...
Rockwell: Wait, what's she doing?
*O'Connor has gotten back to his feet now, testing his jaw to make sure no teeth have been loosened. He nods to Treat, ignoring any advice he's trying to give... but Lissie Hope is running towards him, using the ropes to leap up and fly out with a Suicide Plancha!!! The crowd erupts, having never seen that from Hope before, as she and O'Connor are now laying next to each other outside the ring. The referee once again begins a countout, not looking pleased about it, but the fans are still loving this one, starting a "Holy Shit!" chant.*
Hood: I've never seen Hope fly like that!!
Rockwell: This match is too gigantic to be timid, Hood. Hope is putting everything on the line!
Hood: You think we'd ever see Mack do a suicide dive?
Rockwell: I would be extremely shocked...
*Outside, Hope is rising back up, wincing from pains all along her body. She grabs O'Connor by the head, knowing that a countout won't do anything for her. She and O'Connor stagger over to the apron, with Hope rolling O'Connor inside and following behind him. The ref stops his count, pleased, as he steps back to continue watching the action. In the ring, O'Connor is trying to get back up, looking a little bit like he's seeing some stars, and not just in the audience. Hope lies in wait behind him, then leaps up, locking her arms around O'Connor's throat and bringing him backwards with a Crossface Chickenwing submission!! O'Connor tries to fight, but the hold is fully locked on, dragging O'Connor back down to the canvas!! The fans are cheering, wondering if this is going to be it, as the referee slides in... and starts to count, since Hope is technically on her back! She immediately releases the hold, pushing O'Connor off of her so she can get her shoulders off the mat. The ref nods, stopping, as Hope works to get back up and continue fighting. She switches to O'Connor's legs, trying to apply a Texas Cloverleaf.*
Rockwell: It would be the ultimate win for Hope, if she can make O'Connor submit!
Hood: I can't ever see that happening... O'Connor won't even submit to a sobriety test...
*Hope can't quite get O'Connor's legs set, as he keeps fighting, blocking it. Hope finally gives up, dropping an elbow onto Mack's leg instead! O'Connor winces from the shot, grabbing at his knee, as Hope gets back to her feet. She seems to have all the momentum now, as she grabs O'Connor by the head and pulls him up... before delivering a snap DDT to lay him back out! With O'Connor down, Hope gets to her feet, running a hand along her blistered back before stepping over to the turnbuckle. She starts to climb up, getting herself near the top, calling for the end here as she sets for the Cherry Bomb (Swanton Bomb)!! She gets her balance perfect, pointing upwards as if declaring this for someone, before leaping off and flying through the air... to land right on O'Connor's raised knees!! Hope bounds away, rolling in agony, as O'Connor drops to his side, hurting himself. The referee runs between both wrestlers, making sure they're fit to continue. The fans are on their feet, waiting to see what happens as this epic clash continues!*
Rockwell: So far, these two have matched each other at every turn!
Hood: O'Connor's still got the veteran experience to take this one over now, IF he can get back up!
Rockwell: He's not doing much better than Hope, but at least he hasn't been sent through a table tonight...
*The two wrestlers are both working to get up, with O'Connor slowly approaching Hope first. He gets her by the neck from behind, pulling her back to lock in a sleeper!! Hope is lifted off the ground as her wind is taken from her, with O'Connor whipping her back and forth, adding to the damage! The referee moves in, trying to see if Hope is going to either tap out or pass out. It's not looking good for Hope, as her hands are starting to drop at her sides, showing that she's losing her grip on staying awake. O'Connor lowers her slightly, while keeping the hold applied, wanting to see her unconscious when the match ends. But as soon as Hope feels her feet under her again, she suddenly responds, reaching up and grabbing at O'Connor's head, pulling him down into a jawbreaker!! O'Connor releases the hold, falling away, while Hope rolls on the mat, dazed from the strike to the top of her head. She fights it off, pushing off the mat to get upright. O'Connor comes at her again, swinging wildly... and Hope steps around it, latching onto O'Connor with her legs and taking O'Connor down into the End/Static (Triangle Choke)!!!*
Hood: Oh shit!
Rockwell: This could be it, she's going to win the title by taking the champ out!
Hood: Are we about to see history made again??
*Hope almost has the hold locked in, but O'Connor is blocking it partially with one arm, trying to hand on. He suddenly lifts Hope up off the mat a few feet, then slams her back down, jarring her! She doesn't let go, so O'Connor lifts a second time, slamming her down again! This time, the hold is broken, with Hope getting herself onto her stomach, shuddering slightly. O'Connor rubs his throat, feeling the pain of the hold even though it was never fully locked in. Both wrestlers struggle to get up, but Hope makes it first, despite her back pains. She staggers over to O'Connor, as if wondering what it's going to take to keep him down. She kicks him a couple of times in the side, then grabs him by the head, pulling him up to try for the Dreamchaser (Side Slam Backbreaker)!!! But Hope's back won't quite handle the weight, as she sets O'Connor back down. She winces, then surges up to try again... and O'Connor reverses it, landing Hollow Point!!! The crowd erupts, as Hope flops onto her back, out of it. O'Connor, coughing and wheezing, catches his breath and rolls over, putting an arm across Hope... 1... 2... 3, NO!!! The Garden loses it, as Hope somehow kicks out!!*
Rockwell: She kicked out of Hollow Point!!
Hood: Damn! What's this woman made of, and how can we make more of it??
Rockwell: Neither of these wrestlers want to see their winning streaks end. What's it going to take??
*O'Connor is up on his knees now, staring down first at Hope, then at the referee. He looks like he wants a recount, putting on a tighter pin this time... 1... 2... Hope still kicks out! O'Connor is shook up for a moment, but he pulls himself together as only an experienced grappler can do. He gets up, pulling Hope along with him, wanting to lock this down for sure. He gets Hope in position, setting her up for another Hollow Point! But no, Lissie reverses it, twisting O'Connor around and locking him up... and dropping to the mat with the Crown of Thorns!!! The place erupts again, as Hope painfully tries to get O'Connor over, feeling aches across her entire body. She pushes him over to his back, finally making the cover, as the referee counts... 1... 2... 3, NO!! O'Connor kicks out!! It's Hope's turn to show shock as she looks down at O'Connor, before grabbing his leg and trying again... 1... 2... No! Neither wrestler can keep the other down!! Hope struggles to get herself up, deeply frustrated. She looks towards the turnbuckle, opting to make her way over there. She starts to climb, as the fans are pumped up.*
Rockwell: Is she going for the Cherry Bomb again?
Hood: That didn't work out so well the last time...
Rockwell: At this point, it looks like it's going to take a gigantic move to win, and this might be it!
* The #1 contender has gotten to the top now, adjusting to turn around turns O'Connor... and finding O'Connor on his feet! He is stumbling towards the turnbuckle, reaching out towards Hope, who changes her trajectory and instead leaps off with a missile dropkick!! O'Connor gets knocked backwards, falling to the mat, as Hope has to recover after the impact of the landing. She pulls herself up and crawls over to O'Connor, putting her weight on him... 1... 2... No! O'Connor still won't stay down! Hope is, at this point, running based solely on the next move. She pulls O'Connor up, again trying to get him set for the Dreamchaser... but O'Connor's size is making it difficult. She tries again, no, O'Connor instead lifts Hope up onto his shoulders for a second, before dropping back with a Samoan drop!! Hope hits hard, stunned, as O'Connor rolls over for the cover... 1... 2... NO! The crowd is biting on every fall at this point, wondering how it's going to end. O'Connor grabs Hope by the arm, pulling her up, no, reversal into a roll-up! 1... 2... reversed back... 1... 2... and both wrestlers kick away from each other, landing in flattened out positions, staring at each other!*
Rockwell: These two are putting each other through hell!
Hood: Which is exactly what the World Title deserves!
Rockwell: Nobody will say that the winner hasn't earned this, that's for sure!
*The two wrestlers begin to rise, each on their knees, throwing punches at the other as they start to work their way to their feet. The fans are cheering every strike, with the crowd evenly split between the two of them at this point. Hope lands a couple of shots to stagger O'Connor, but the champ comes right back with some forearms, each landing fiercely against the side of the head! He steps in, grabbing hold of Hope and goes to lift her into the Claymore!! NO! Hope reverses out of it, twisting it towards the Dreamchaser!! NO! O'Connor breaks free, latching onto Hope and dropping with Hollow Point!! But Hope doesn't come with him!! O'Connor, wincing, starts to get back up, but now Hope is trying to lock in End/Static again!! NO, O'Connor elbows his way out of it!! He locks on for the Claymore again, reversal, double reversal, both wrestlers separate, but Hope moves in first, kicking O'Connor and locking up his arms... CROWN OF THORNS LANDS!!!! The Garden is about to come unglued as Hope rolls O'Connor over, making the cover... 1... 2... 3!!!!!!!!!!!!*
Minos: Here is your winner... and the NEW GCWA World Heavyweight Champion.... "THE BLACKHEART"... LISSSSSSIEEEE HOOOOOOPE!
Rockwell: She did it!! Lissie Hope did it!!
Hood: Whoa, damn!
Rockwell: The Warriors of the Ring winner is now the GCWA Heavyweight Champion of the World!!
Hood: I can't believe it! Mack went down!!
Rockwell: What a match! What a night!
Hood: I'm in shock!
*The referee goes to get the new World Heavyweight Title, having to use both hands to get it up and bring it inside. He hands it over to the exhausted Hope, who loves the feel of the weight in her hands. She raises it up above her, heading to the turnbuckle, as confetti and streamers begin to fall from the ceiling!*
Rockwell: It's been a night of history, ladies and gentlemen, one that will shape the GCWA for a long time to come! We're out of time, so thanks again for tuning in!
Hood: I still can't believe it!
Rockwell: Good night!
*The last shot focuses on Hope with the championship above her head, yelling out to the crowd as the confetti continues to fall. It's an incredible moment, that unfortunately has to come to an end for those watching at home. We fade out.*
The lights dim to a blood red, as glitchy electronic noises fill the arena. Many suspect that "Ghosts n' Stuff" is about to play...until instead they get a snippet of multiple songs. First "You Know My Name," then "Mountain Song," "Ghosts 'n Stuff, "The Scott Pilgrim Anthem," "Professional Griefers "and finally "True North." This snippets play seemingly at random until all sound stops, and the lights go off completely, until three words pop up on the titantron, in big white letters.
"FRANK PATRICK VENABLE"
The crowd explodes in applause as "TKeep This Up" hits the P.A and Frank Patrick Venable finally makes his entrance, dressed in a dark red hoodie and wrestling tights, ready for a fight. He runs down to the ring at an almost inhumane speed, sliding into the ring from underneath the bottom rope. He panders to the always appreciative crowd before removing his hoodie and entering his corner, waiting for the bell.
Billy: It's World Championship time! It's the final semi-final match up!
Chris Avery: We know Walter is in the finals! Who meets Walter this Sunday at Turmoil and who brings the World Championship with them!
The arena comes to a still and for a few seconds, the silence is deafening. It’s broken by the crackly, distorted voice of Billie Eilish.
I’M THE BAAAAAAAD GUUUUY DUH!
The beat drops and the strobe lights flicker in hues of red as Billie’s “bad guy” permeates the arena. Action Wrestling’s Miss All-In 2019, and current Action Wrestling World Champion Lissie Hope, steps out from behind the curtain to a chorus of cheers. She has a wide smile and performs a cute curtsy at the top of the ramp, before raising the World Championship belt up to the crowd!
Adilene Floyd: Making her way to the ring, from New Orleans, Louisiana! She stands five-feet, five-inches tall and weighs 135 pounds… she is the ACTION WRESTLING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!! LISSSSSSSSIE… HOOOOOOOPE!
She claps her hands and begins jogging down the ramp, slapping a few outstretched hands before stopping at the ring apron. The song inches towards the chorus and Lissie raises the championship up again, looking up at the bright spotlights.
She slaps the mat a couple of times and rolls into the ring, pulling herself up with the ropes. Nodding her head to the verse, she ascends the middle rope and stands in the corner turnbuckle, raising the title to the crowd once more.
She mouths the words to the song and hops back down, trying to get into her opponents’ head. She’s resisting the urge to come face to face right now but instead just gives a huge smile and removes the World Championship, handing it over to the time-keeper. As the music fades, you can see the transformation in her face as she gets mentally ready to throw down.
Billy: Lissie Hope! Our new World Champion defeated Dandy DiVito last week in a wildly hot contested match up and man, I'm just as excited for her as I would be my own kids, damn it!
Chris Avery: Hell yeah! She deserves it, and she's going to be a great World Champion for Action Wrestling!
Lissie Hope and FPV stretch in the corner as the ref shows them the World Championship and then holds it in the air. The ref hands it to Adilene Floyd and then demands the bell to be rang!
DING DING DING
Fpv and Lissie tie up in the middle of the ring instantly and she hits a hip toss and then is off to the ropes and cartwheels over FPV who rolls towards her and gets to his feet and he leap frogs as she continues running to the ropes and goes for a crossbody but Fpv catches her and swings her around but she arm drags Fpv to the mats and he rolls to the corner and is back on his feet as she rushes in looking for some flying attack but he sidesteps and she lands on the turnbuckles and jumps off backwards but Fpv catches her and flips her down to the mat and locks on an arm hold of some sort but she back rolls and flips out of it and puts Fpv in a wrist lock and shoves him into the corner chest first but Fpv headbutts backwards into Lissies forehead knocking the hold and Fpv turns around and whips Lissie into the corner and then bulldogs her onto the canvas and goes for a quick cover!
It's only a one count.
They both get to their feet and Lissie whips Fpv but he reverses it and whips her into the ropes and tilts her around and hits a backbreaker! She sells it like death and the crowd oooohs, it's because Odin fucking powerbombed her onto the apron just a week ago! She's in tremendous pain and is rolling around in the corner as the ref checks on her.
Billy: We know what Odin did to that back just a week ago!
Chris Avery: One has to wonder if he's watching this match closely because the last two weeks he's attacked the Champion at the end of the show!
Fpv picks up Lissie in the corner and hits a few chops and then a right hand, a throat strike and then whips her into the other corner as hard as he can and she smashes back first into the turnbuckles and stumbles out as Fpv hits a running clothesline sending her back down to the canvas!
He hooks a leg!
Frank lifts up Lissie and chops her a few times and whips her into the ropes and goes for a clothesline but she ducks and continues running, she springboards off the middle rope and jumps back but Frank catches her and holds her in the air for a German Suplex and just dead-lifts/holds her before throwing her back into a German Suplex and bridging with a pin!
Frank lifts up Lissie well, he tries to lift her up but she rolls to the bottom rope and leans to the apron as Frank slides out of the ring and holds her off the apron hitting some elbows to the back of her head and pulls her to the mats and lifts her up. He goes for a suplex but she blocks it with her feet, she lifts up Frank for a suplex but he lands behind her on his feet and shoves her forward into the railing! He grabs her and throws her into the ring post and hits a forearm to her back sending her crumbling down to the mats.
Billy: Frank really working the back of Lissie!
Chris Avery: Lissie rolling into the ring to get away from Frank! Trying to create some space!
Lissie does indeed roll into the ring and is stretching her back as Frank stalks her and she kicks at his gut and the legs and throws a forearm! She rushes to the ropes for added momentum but Frank picks her up hitting a side walk slam! He hooks a leg for another cover!
Lissie kicks out!
Frank lifts her up and shoves her back into the corner and kicks her a few times in the chest and whips her into the other corner where he rushes in right behind her for a big clothesline but she lifts a foot up and hits him with a kick! Frank stumbles backwards and Lissie hits a spinning kick to the head of Frank knocking him straight back down to the mat! Lissie covers!
Frank kicks up as Lissie rolls to her feet.

Billy: WHO IS THIS?! WHY ARE THE GOD DAMN LIGHTS FLICKERING?!
Chris Avery: ITS SO HARD TO SEE WHATS HAPPENING!
The big man in the hooded sweatshirt grabs the ref and pulls the attention 100% to him and is arguing about the briefcase! The ref is trying to get the hooded sweatshirt to let go, in all the pulling and arguing, the hood comes off and it's Alex Richards.
Billy: Thats.. THATS ALEX RICHARDS!!
Chris Avery: WHAT IS HE DOING?!

A Sisterhood Begins
AW Chaos (07-26-2020)
Tag Team Championship The Swallowing vs. The Following vs. Kill or Cure
Billy: It's Chaos time!
Chris Avery: We're not too sure what a Chaos Tag Team Championship match is, but it's about to go down!
Billy: We do know pinfalls or vsubmissions have to happen INSIDE the ring but there is no tagging, and there is no disqualification!
Chris Avery: Here we go!
"Fuck the Pain Away" by Peaches begins to echo throughout the arena, as the arena lights blackout leaving the arena in total darkness, the fans the front rows are sprayed with a glow in the dark spray that gives the impression that they've received a facial.
As the lyrics of the song kick into the gear, the arena lights begin to strobe before proving a single light focus on the stage, while the rest of the arena remains bathed in darkness.
Lisse Hope is first to walk out onto the landing. Adelaide Ainsworth skips out behind her and slaps her on the ass as she skips past twirling her hair and chewing gum on the way to the ring, mimicking the mannerisms of the sluttiest school girl imaginable. The spotlight splits in two as it follows the girls to the ring. Lissie trails behind Addy and enters the ring, while Ainsworth skips around the ring, before sticking her gum behind the ear of a random front row fan.
Adilene Floyd: Ladies and gentlemen, the former Action Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion... LISSSSSSIEEEE HOOOOOOPE AND ADELAAAAAAIDE AIIIINSWOOOORTH... THE SWAAAALOOOOWING!!
The lights focus on the ring as Addy does the splits and slides herself into under the bottom rope before house lights raise.
"Awake and Alive" By Skillet hits and Kyle Kemp leads Odin Balfore through the curtain to the top of the stage. The crowd looks for other Following members but they don't appear. Kyle Kemp and Odin Balfore make their way to the ring.
Billy: The Following have been at the forefront of destruction and violent rage in the tag team division!
Chris Avery: This match just might be right up their alley!
They stand on the outside of the ring eyeing The Swallowing.
Lissie and Addy take off and suicide dive through the ropes and take out The Following!
Chris Avery: THEY'RE TAKING THE FIGHT TO THE FOLLOWING!
The lights in the arena flicker as static crackles from the speakers. As the venue’s illumination degrades we cut to outside where Crow McMorris and KOS are entering the building. Back inside, glitched text on the ‘tron begins to unscramble…
“K…” as the service doors to the arena open and Crow enters. “I…” as KOS enters from a different side door, “I…” Crow and KOS meet up in a backstage corridor, marching now towards gorilla. “L…”
“HERE COME THE WOLVES, NOWHERE TO RUN WHEN THE WOLVES RUN”
KOS AND CROW COME RUNNING DOWN THE RAMP AS FAST AS THEY CAN AND JUMP IN ON THE MELEE THAT IS FOLLOWING AND SWALLOWING!!
The ref grabs the belts that were tossed down ringside by KOS and Crow and rings the bell!!
DING DING DING
Billy: HERE WE GO!!
Chris Avery: THIS IS FOR THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Addy picks up Kemp and drops him chest first onto the railing and then flips him over into the crowd as KOS clotheslines Addy over the railing and they crash into the crowd!
Lissie is hitting Odin with lefts and rights and lefts and rights and lefts and rights and finally backs up and hits a super kick to Odins jaw! Odin turns around and Crow runs hitting a big boot taking Odin off his feet! Lissie and Crow eye each other up for a split second AND START THROWING HAYMAKERS!
Billy: This match is CHAOTIC!
Addy hits Kemp with a few right hands backing him up against a wall and then goes for a big splash of some sort but Kemp side steps and smashes Addy A into the grandstand wall! He hits a chop and then knees her in the gut and goes for a DDT!
Billy: Not on the ice cold cement!
Addy A gets out of it and twists the arm of Kemp and they both look up! On the wall about 8 feet up is KOS!
Chris Avery: OH MY GOD LOOK OUT!!
KOS LEAPS FROM THE WALL AND COMES CRASHING DOWN ONTO KEMP AND ADDY A!!
Billy: WHAT A FALL!!
Chris Avery: HOLY CRAP!
The three of them are down on the cement and we cut to Crow whipping Lissie into the timekeepers area! Crow comes rushing in but Lissie gets a boot up and stops Crows momentum, Lissie grabs Crow and they turn around and..
Billy: HOLY SHIT LOOK OUT!!
ODIN BALFORE RUSHES IN FULL SPEED AND SPEARS LISSIE AND CROW THROUGH THE GUARD RAILING!! THEY CRASH INTO THE TIME KEEPERS AREA!!
Chris Avery: OH MY GOD THEY MIGHT BE DEAD!!
The crowd is chanting HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
KOS comes over the railing and crawls to the steel steps and makes his way into the ring. Odin is crawling around and he finally stands up and brushes himself off. He gets on the apron and KOS hits a lucha-kick to the face of Odin! Odin stays on the apron and swats away a dropkick from KOS before entering the ring. KOS is lifted to his feet and picked up and thrown into the corner! Odin comes rushing in with a back elbow and then lifts KOS off his feet again and hits a sidewalk slam in the middle of the ring!
KOS kicks out!
Odin gets KOS to his feet and hits a few right hands before whipping him to the ropes and goes for a big boot but KOS ducks it and turns Odin around hitting a few right hands! KOS backs up and goes for a superkick but Odin catches it and brings KOS in for a chokeslam..
Billy: LOOK OUT!!
Odin lifts KOS up and slams him down with a vicious chokeslam in hte middle of the ring!
THE PINFALL IS BROKEN UP BY LISSIE HOPE!
Lissie is stomping on Odin and just jumping on his back! Odin gets up to his hands and knees and Lissie comes in with a huge knee to Odins face! Lissie lays on Odin and just keeps delivering rights to Odins head! She gets up and KOS is on the apron and she knocks him off to the mats below! Odin is up and Lissie hits a running shotgun dropkick sending Odin back into the corner! She gets to her feet and lifts Odin to a seated position on the top turnbuckle. She climbs up and goes for a superplex but Odin knocks her down off the turnbuckles to the canvas. Odin gets off the turnbuckles but Lissie is up and hits a superkick again! She hits a second superkick! A third superkick! She superkicks Odin in the gut and then runs up the turnbuckles and hits a super stiff tornado DDT!
Billy: OH WOW!
Lissie hooks Odin's leg!
KEMP DIVES IN WITH THE SAVE!
Lissie gets up and Kemp meets her with a few strikes but he whips her to the ropes and she hangs on and Kemp bends down! Lissie rushes over and grabs the head of Kemp and ties up the arms!
She's looking for the pedigree!
Kemp spins/twirls out of it and short-arm clotheslines Lissie to the canvas! Kemp keeps the arms hooked and starts stomping on the chest/face of Lissie while holding on to her arms! He lets go and Lissie rolls to her stomach and Kemp picks her up and hits a sitout powerbomb in the middle of the ring!
LISSIE KICKS OUT!
Kemp shoves her over and stomps on her a few times and then backs himself up in the corner..
Billy: He's looking for that punt kick isn't he?!
Chris Avery: He could end her right here!
Lissie is in bad shape and is crawling around and Kemp bursts out of the corner for the punt kick but CROW WITH A HUGE CLAYMORE KICK SENDS KEMP TO THE CANVAS!!
Chris Avery: OH MY!!
Crow pins Kemp!

She falls on Crow with the cover!
ODIN PULLS THE REF OUT OF THE RING!!
Billy: THAT MAY HAVE BEEN IT!! THAT COULD HAVE BEEN IT!!
Odin turns around and Addy jumps over the ropes and crashes down onto Odin brawling with him!
That's when we see KOS pulling out a HUGE 20 foot ladder from under the ring
Chris Avery: What the hell is he gonna do with that?!
KOS sets it between the ring and the table and opens it up. It's soooo tall. KOS looks up but then turns around and Lissie starts throwing haymakers and boots to KOS! He's thrown to the railing! KOS gets up and Lissie hits a spear on the outside putting him down for good!

A Bitter End
AW Timebomb (03-28-2021)
Lissie Hope vs. Howard Black
Adiliene Floyd: The following is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, she weighs in at 135 lbs... "THE BLACKHEART"... LISSIE HOPE!!!
The downtempo bass drops. The trap-heavy outro of Billie Eilish’s “bad guy” floods the arena, the booming shaking the seats underneath each audience member. They rise to their feet in anticipation of the arrival of Action Wrestling’s former two-time World Champion and All-In Briefcase holder, and current new recruit of Philidor Holdings, Lissie Hope.
I like when you get mad.
The crowd jumps out of their seats as the booming bass of the song continues. The anticipation is growing, but the boo's and heavy, nuclear amounts of heat.
You said she’s scared of me?
Finally, the curtains spread and Lissie Hope emerges at the top of the entrance stage, standing for a moment and taking in the negative reaction of the fans. It seems to get to her, both in a slightly hurt but then, defiant manner. Lissie doesn't sprint to the ring this time, taking the time to boldly square her shoulders and take the long walk down to the ring, with the crowd booing the entire time. Sliding under the bottom rope, she bounces to her feet and raises her arms to the crowd.
I’m the bad guy.
She enters the ring, wearing a cut-off "Villain" tee-shirt, and black and red workout pants. She removes the Villain t-shirt and tosses it the front rows, watching the fans fight over the memorabilia. Climbing the corner as the crowd showers her with boos, the song fades to a hush and she awaits the opening bell.
Chris Avery: The fans are showing Lissie all of their feelings about the "new" Lissie Hope, the woman who called herself the Heroine had been recruited by Philidor and perpetrated a brutal betrayal. They are not forgiving.
Billy: She broke all our hearts, Avery! She's a Jezebel!!
Chris Avery: And yet, when push came to shove, Lissie did not go through with it when Ash Blake ordered her to join in the decimation of Howard Black last week on Clash... so Blake, and the HR Department, have issued this ultimatum, tonight, Lissie is going to fight Black.
Billy: I have no idea what's gonna happen, but I'm invested as FUCK!
Adilene Floyd: And her opponent...
Lissie seems to be mentally preparing herself. She squats in a ready position, looking back to the backstage area. Perhaps she's waiting for Howard in this pregnant second, or maybe, she's looking back to see if Ash Blake and the HR Department are watching.
Adilene Floyd: Weighing in at 215 lbs... "THE LOST BOY"... HOWARD BLACK!!
The lights in the arena go to black, with only the giant screen above the stage displaying intensifying white streaks as the violins beginning "Endzeit" by Heaven Shall Burn swell. As the guitar and screams blare through the speakers, words splash themselves across the ActionTron:
"It's Such a Long Way Down"
From the curtain emerges Howard Black in a black hooded sweatshirt and black wrestling pants. White lions decorate the sides of his legs - a silver crucifix hangs from his neck.
Howard makes his way down the ramp, his eyes focused on the ring and his attention largely removed from the roar of the crowd around him. At the base of the ring, he looks up and stares right into the eyes of Lissie Hope. The two of them stare at each other, with the tension hanging thick. Howard's face shows a mix of determination, hurt, anger, care... but most of all, he just stares at Lissie with a little bit of sadness, as if this is what it's come to. The moment of contemplation passes before he turns and crosses to the stairs, climbing them and entering the ring between the middle and top rope.
Once inside, he goes through the usual motions of sweeping his hood from his head and crossing the mat to the far turnbuckle. He climbs to the second rope and looks over the crowd, his face stern and stoic. But this time, he's taking extra careful and deliberate time, slowing everything down to put off fighting Lissie. Dropping back to the mat, he crosses to his corner and removes his sweatshirt and crucifix necklace, which he gives a kiss before carefully storing it away. Turning back to the ring, he wait for the match to begin, leaning back in repose until the bell rings.
Chris Avery: Howard Black's face tells the story. Neither one of them wanted it to come to this, but it seems like Lissie's obligations to Philidor have forced their hands. And yet, the history between them has made this all too real, and painful for Black.
The referee orders the bell rung and Lissie and Howard stand there for a long, tense moment. Howard makes no move towards Lissie, and the ref tells them let's get it on. Lissie looks from Howard, back to the back, and her mind seems to be making itself up, even though she doesn't want to do this. She yells at Howard to hit her. Howard shakes his head, and says he isn't going to do that. Lissie's voice gets higher, exhorting him "Fight me, Howard. FIGHT me" and she comes towards him, shoving and hitting him. Howard takes it on the cheek and shakes his head. The crowd is building in energy, some cheering for Howard to give everything he's got to the woman who betrayed their hearts, some not wanting the two to fight each other, a mix of "Yes Yes Yes" and "No No No" chants. Lissie is getting frustrated now, because she's been given no choice in the matter, she slaps Howard, yelling "FIGHT ME!!" Howard grits his teeth, and he backs away from Lissie, but he motions for her to come on. The two circle each other warily.
Billy: THEY GOTTA FIGHT!
Lissie moves towards Howard, who attempts to shoot in for a takedown, but Lissie dodges to the side and nails his arm with a straight kick. Howard grits his teeth and shakes his arm. He grapples Lissie again, but Lissie wrings his arm and snaps off several more kicks. Lissie wrings Howard's arm, twisting it into a wristlock. Howard grunts in pain. He reverses into a hammerlock on Lissie. Lissie twists and tries to escape his grasp, then stomps on his foot and elbows him with her free arm. Howard finally releases the hold. Lissie goes for a kick, but he catches her foot, plants a hand on her chest, and shoves her away with force. Lissie simply rolls back into a crouched position. Howard looks down at her as if he's doing everything he can not to hurt Lissie, saying 'Don't make me hit you'. the two of them come towards each other again. They grapple, and Howard twists Lissie's arm into a wristlock. Lissie is able to perform a cartwheel to relieve the pressure on her arm, then she takes him down with an arm drag. Lissie applies a keylock on Howard's arm. Howard shakes his head in pain and attempts to elbow Lissie off. Lissie floats over into a front facelock, trying to choke him out, then she readjusts the hold and applies a rear chinlock wih her knee in Howard's back.
Chris Avery: Lissie has more incentive to fight here, and she is using all of her quickness and skill to chip away at Howard.
As the crowd starts getting behind Lissie and Howard, clapping for them, Howard begins pulling himself up to a vertical base. He pushes Lissie off with force. Lissie comes right back at him, lighting him up with several kicks to the midsection, and then she grabs his arm and springs to the ropes, springing up onto the second rope and then hopping over the top rope while holding Black's hand, and as she comes down she yanks his injured arm on the top rope with force. Howard stumbles back, and holds his arm. Howard comes back to the ropes to grab Lissie, but she gives him a shoulder thrust. Howard drops to one knee, and Lissie runs off the ropes and as she comes back, she performs a short modified reverse hurricanrana to the doubled over Lost Boy that drives him face first into the canvas. Lissie then locks on a Fujiwara armbar, yanking Howard's injured arm and shoulder as she wrenches it upwards. The ref asks Howard if he gives up. Howard refuses. Lissie bends his arm back at an uncomfortable angle, but Howard still refuses to give up.
Lissie grips his arm, trying to lift him up and twist the arm at the same time, but Howard explodes with a clothesline from his free arm that flips Lissie completely over. Howard looks down at Lissie, then looking at his hands, seeing in horror that he hit her. Howard looks sadly down at her, a sort of "Look what you made me do, kid" expression. Howard tries to help her to her feet, not in an offensive way, more of a trying to set her upright. Lissie ducks under Howard's outstretched hands and gives him a forearm shot to the mouth, then she lights up his legs with a few kicks, including a straight stomp right on the knee. Lissie backs up to the ropes, but Howard gives Lissie a back drop that sends her sailing high into the air and crashing down on the mat. Lissie shouts in pain and holds her lower back.
Chris Avery: Howard seems reluctant to hit Lissie... but he is doing everything he can to outpace her.
Billy: My grandmama always said it was wrong to hit a lady, maybe Howard had some other similar countryboy archetype in his life to feed him catechisms.
Chris Avery: You -... Billy, that was remarkably meta. Are you becoming self-aware?
Howard lifts Lissie up, and sensing that he needs to do something here, plants Lissie with a scoop slam. Lissie grits her teeth and hisses in pain, as she holds her lower back. Howard looks down at his hands again, mentally calculating how far he wants to go with her. Howard irish whips her to the ropes, and as she comes back off Howard swings for a clothesline but Lissie ducks under it and keeps running to the opposite ropes. She flings herself at Howard for a Thesz press, but Howard catches her for an arm drag. Howie then works it into a key lock, before flattening Lissie's arm out on the mat and giving a handstand kneedrop onto her elbow. Howie then grips Lissie's arm and bends it back in a Fujiwara armbar of his own.
Chris Avery: I think Howard has settled on, if he isn't going to hit Lissie, he can outwrestle her.
Billy: Yeah, but you gotta ask yourself at some point, Avery... can there be any winners here, I mean... these two have gotta find some way to get out of this.
Lissie reaches out quickly and scoots to the ropes before the hold can be fully applied. The referee tells Howard to break the hold and he does, holding his hands up innocently. Howard gets to his feet Howard lifts Lissie up and performs a vertical suplex. Howard lifts Lissie up and whips her off the ropes, giving her a one-armed version of a back body drop on the return. Howard paces around, a determined expression on his face. Lissie gets to her feet, and Howard hooks her from the side and goes to give her an STO Lissie spins out of it and wrings his arm. Lissie floats behind him with a hammerlock, but Howard snapmares her out of it. Lissie rolls back up, and Howard shakes his head grimly. Lissie gets back up, and clamps on Howard with a sleeper hold, yelling and thrashing around on his back, yelling for him to just lay down and end this. Howard runs her backwards until she is rammed into the turnbuckles with force. Lissie releases the hold, and Howard pulls her out with one arm and plants her with a sidewalk slam. Then, he locks in a crossface chickenwing.
Chris Avery: Black going for perhaps one of the only things in his arsenal to just put Lissie to sleep. Howard has more violent options, such as the Pitbull Lock or the Kimura... but those have more aggressive mannerisms that would put Lissie in more hurt than Howard is trying for in this match.
Billy: We know there ain't no quit in Lissie - at least, the old Lissie. But I also think, with the situation she's in, she can't afford to quit, either.
The referee asks Lissie if she gives up, but Lissie refuses. Several long moments tick by as Howard grips the hold in, and Lissie yells and reaches for the ropes with her free arm. Finally, Lissie pushes Howard, still hanging onto the hold, onto his back and bridges her legs into a pinning predicament. The referee drops down for a count.
The referee: One...
Thr - Howard releases the hold and lets Lissie fall to the side.
Howard is starting to get into big fight mode, trying to figure how to put Lissie away. As Lissie gets to one knee, Howard starts his arm as if to hit her with a Mollywhop but then, as Lissie looks up at him, Howard stays his hand, flashing back to all their times together, and hesitates. Lissie does not hesitate, performing a leg sweep kick to take Howard down and then floating over into an elevated single leg Boston crab with a knee on Howard's neck. Lissie yells again for Howard to give up. Howard groans in pain, but he refuses. Lissie is getting increasingly frustrated. Lissie releases the hold, only to float over and bend both his arms back into a scissored armbar, aka the Rings of Saturn. Howard yells in pain as his shoulder is wrenched. Lissie shouts that he has to give up. Howard yells that he won't. Lissie simply tightens the hold. Several moments pass by as the ref asks Howard again and again if he submits, and the crowd is willing the Lost Boy on. Finally, Lissie releases the hold. She shakes her head in frustration. Attempting to lift Howard up, but he is dead-weighting himself so as not to make it easy. Lissie pounds on his injured shoulder. Howard shoves her away. Lissie comes running back in and boots him viciously in the side of the head. Howard stumbles and falls to the mat, facedown. Lissie has a look of the utterly possessed as she stares down at Howard.
Chris Avery: There is so much on the line for Lissie, who knows what will happen if she disobeys or doesn't give her bosses what they want??
Billy: Exactly, they told her they want Howie mangled, broken, beat tf up, and she has to deliver!!
Lissie stomps on his hand and then gives his arm a knee drop. Howard yells and holds his arm in pain. Lissie motions for him to get up. As he gets to his feet, Lissie doubles Black over with a spinning back kick to the midsection, then she runs off the ropes and hits a running variation of a double knee facebuster. Lissie then runs to the ropes, and comes down with a tornado DDT, taking Howard to the mat, and for a second, the crowd reacts like they've got the Lissie Hope of old back. But then, as Lissie takes a few seconds to take a few gasping breaths, hanging onto the top rope by one arm, she looks around at the crowd with a look of disdain, and the boos start to creep in. Lissie shakes her head, and goes for the pin.
The referee: One...
Thre - Kickout.
Chris Avery: Lissie is just raining down punishment on Howard Black, and now look at her, she certainly isn't looking like the "Heroine" at the moment.
Billy: No doubt about it she's the baaaad guy, duh.
Lissie looks down at Howard, and she seems to be calculating, herself if she wants to go for one of her more devastating signature moves but - she hesitates too, she doesn't want to go all in on destroying Howie, somehow. She starts to go for a reverse STO but Howard fireman carries her to the mat. Lissie stumbles again, right into a back suplex. Howard peels Lissie off the mat and gives her a harsh snap suplex. Lissie arches her lower back in pain. Howard then applies a Boston crab, bending Lissie's legs back until she's almost bent double. Lissie shouts in pain. Lissie tries to grab the bottom ropes. Howard pulls her back out into the middle of the ring and sits back on the hold. Lissie screams in pain, and flails her arms. She grits her teeth to keep from shouting any more and bites her knuckle. Howard looks back at her, conflicted over how much pain he's putting Lissie in, but then looking forward stoically. Finally, Lissie crawls forward and grabs on to the bottom rope yet again, and the referee forces the break. Howard stands, again holding his hands up to show that he is making no aggressive action.
Howard senses, as Lissie lies on the mat and holds her back and leg in pain, that he can end it here, and he starts to pull her up, hooking her for the Tree of No Cares, but he doesn't have it cinched in all the way. He looks up at the lights, searching for answers from God the universe or the fans, who are all giving him support. Howard releases her from the hold for the spinning arm-trap DDT and just plants Lissie into the mat with a scoop slam. Howard shows regret in his eyes as he tries to grip her arm and maybe start the Kimura lock. Lissie's foot lashes out and catches him in the mouth, so hard that it makes his head snap back. A few spatters of blood fall on the mat, Lissie's kick busted' Howard's nose and lips. He holds his mouth in shock, and then Lissie gives Howard a kick in the gut to make him double over and drop to his knees. Lissie then runs off the ropes and goes for a shining wizard, but he ducks the swing of the kick and before her momentum can carry her around, he lifts her up on his shoulders and grabs on, then drops her with a reverse Death valley Driver. Howard then rests against the ropes, working his jaw and trying to wipe away the heavy flow of blood coming from his deviated septum.
Chris Avery: I think Lissie may have just pushed Howard too far.
Billy: She made the Lost Boy BLEED!!
Howard lifts Lissie up in a front facelock, then he drops her with a sit-out spinning arm-trap DDT, which he rolls straight into a Kimura lock.
Chris Avery: His hand completely forced, Howard went from the Tree of No Cares into the Kimura. He has been doing everything he can to avoid hitting Lissie, but with blood leaking down his front from his busted nose, he's trying to end this match right NOW!
Howard twists on the Kimura, wrenching the hold in. Lissie yells and thrashes with her free arm. The hold isn't in to it's deepest twist yet, and Lissie is pushing herself on her elbow to turn into a position to alleviate the pressure even as Howard is doggedly trying to take her back down to her stomach. Lissie flings her free elbow back, the point of it ramming into Howard's temple again, and again, until he releases the Kimura. Howard shakes the cobwebs out quickly, and he gets to his feet, trying to turn Lissie over for a cloverleaf. Lissie again tries to fight out of it by punching Howard, hitting him in the face again and again and making more blood fall on them both. Howard simply stops trying to lock in the submission, then he grips both of her legs and falls back with a catapult, throwing her up into the corner. Lissie, however, is able to spring up at the last second and hop onto the second rope, then she resets herself and springs off the ropes, but she runs right into a big boot from Howard that catches her in midair and nearly decapitates her. Lissie does a flip in midair, then flops to the mat. Howard drops to both knees, holding his face, and he looks over at Lissie. He didn't want to do any of this to her, but he has and there's no turning back now.
Howard hen grabs hold of her legs and locks her in a Mexican surfboard submission. The referee asks Lissie if she gives up, but Lissie refuses.
Billy: You have to admire this girl's tenacity.
Howard pulls back on the hold until he is on his back, and Lissie's back is arched. He tells her to give up, but she frantically shakes her head as her mouth is stretched in a grimace of pain. Finally, Howard breaks the hold. He lifts Lissie up and gives her a lifting t-bone suplex. Lissie lands on her lower back, and lets out a scream of pain. Howard walks over, and clubs Lissie a few times, then gives her a vertical suplex, holding on as he rolls his hips and lifting her up for a second vertical suplex. He holds on and rolls to his feet a third time, lifting her back up, and he resets himself and pops off a rolling Northern light's suplex. Lissie is flung across the ring. Howard, standing by the ropes, is calling for a Seventh Seal, but as he rushes at Lissie, Lissie leapfrogs him. Howard puts on the breaks, and turns around, and Lissie counters into a sit-out facebuster. The crowd pops for Lissie at this sudden reversal.
Chris Avery: Seventh Seal COUNTERED!!
Billy: Both of these two know each other so well, and that's why it's best not to have sex with anybody!
Chris Avery: They were just friends, Billy, don't be gross.
Billy: Suuuureeee, juuuust friends!!
Lissie then rests for a moment, catching her breath. After a few moments, she simply wraps her legs around Black's throat with a headscissor submission. She squeezes his throat tightly. Lissie shouts for him to give up. Howard, although being choked out, refuses. Lissie tightens the hold on her legs, and shouts at him again. Then, Lissie turns over on her stomach as she keeps his head between her legs, facedown. Lissie begins bouncing her hips up and down, giving him multiple facebusters into the mat and repeatedly driving his face into the canvas. Lissie turns back over and re-tightens the headscissors submission. The referee asks Black if he will throw in the towel, but Howard refuses yet again. Howard begins tiwsting himself around and trying to pull Lissie's legs apart. Finally, he is able to power his way up to his knees, as he is between Lissie's legs and he stands, gripping them, and he turns her over into a Texas cloverleaf. Lissie's eyes shoot open wide as Howard sits back on the hold. Lissie yells in pain and reaches for the ropes, for anything. Howard puts all his weight on the hold yet again. Lissie's face is twisted in agony. Howard tells her to give up. Lissie, however, is able to counter by pulling Howard's leg and yanking him off balance, and finally with Howard shaken up thus she is able to counter into a leg-scissor rollup!!
The referee: One...
Three - Kickout!
Both competitors are down, and take a few extra seconds to recuperate and take big lungfuls of air, before Howard is the first to his feet, still wiping his busted nose. He lifts Lissie back up and whips her off the ropes. As Lissie bounces off the ropes, Howard crushes her on the comeback with a bicycle knee. Then goes to lift her up, but he is tripped so that he falls into the corner, face first onto the middle turnbuckle, exacerbating the already busted nose of Howard. Howard falls out of the corner and onto all fours, stunned. Then Lissie quickly takes his head off with a buzzsaw kick. lissie paces around, holding her back, and Howie once again gets to a crouched position, as Lissie comes running in and gives him a low doublefooted dropkick to the side of the head. Lissie goes for a cover.
The referee: One...
Lissie looks frustrated, and lets out a yell. She looks back up the ramp, as if sensing the HR Department's hand close by, and then looks once more down at Howard as if she'd rather be doing anything but this. She lifts him up, calling for the Crown of Thorns, but she hesitates, an Howard backdrops his way out of the Pedigree, hitting the mat hard and then Lissie rolls to the outside, holding her back. Howard follows after her. Lissie crawls in the aisle, trying to get to her feet.Howard lifts Lissie back up and clubs her a few times, then he hooks her from the side and gives her a harsh Russian legsweep into the guardrail. The back of Lissie's head cracks the steel. She falls into the aisle. Howard, his jaw set in determination, walks over and grabs a steel chair, and he begins setting it up in the corner where two portions of the guardrail intersect. He lifts Lissie up and sits her in the chair. He backs up to the middle of the aisle and then gets a running start, attempting to give Lissie a boot while she's in the seated position, but she dives out of the way. Howard's leg is hung up with the guardrail. Lissie then nails Howard in the side of the head with a roundhouse kick, and Howard drops into the aisle! Lissie then senses the referee counting both of them out. The referee is at a count of 8... Lissie rolls in to break the count, then, her energy begins vibrating, and her leg bounces a little in anticipation, waiting for Howard to get back up in the aisle. Then, as Howard gets up, Lissie sprints across the ring, then explodes through the ropes, taking Howard down in the aisle with a Suicide Plancha!! Both competitors are down in the aisle again! The crowd explodes, and both Howard and Lissie are down in the aisle.
Chris Avery: LISSIE JUST WIPED THEM BOTH OUT!
The referee leans out and starts checking on both competitors. At length, as Lissie and Howard are both dazed and unable to pick themselves up, he begins counting them both out... 1... 2... 3... 4... 5... Lissie starts pulling herself up, using the guardrail to hold her upright. Howard follows, stumbling and barely able to keep his footing without the use of the apron. Lissie recovers quicker. She makes her way around the ring. Howard pursues Lissie around the ring. Lissie comes around the corner where the announcer table is, and she jumps on the corner of the table just as Howard comes around the corner by the ringpost. Lissie jumps back with a springboard forearm nocking Howard back against the guardrail. Howard then launches himself forward going for a clothesline, but Lissie ducks and Black gets nothing but ringpost. As Howard backs away from the turnbuckle holding his shoulder, Lissie takes him down to the padded floor with a Meteora off the ring apron. Both competitors are down again, but Lissie nips up to her feet with a warrior's yell.
Lissie rolls back in the ring, staring at Howard with intense focus, and she senses that she has to do something to end this. She gives a nervous look back over her shoulder.
Chris Avery: You have to wonder if the clock is ticking, or if Lissie's new benefactors are getting impatient for her to put Black away.
Howard, meanwhile, is pulling himself up. Lissie goes for a baseball slide, but Howard moves out of the way and lets Lissie go by her. Howard goes for a clothesline, but again Lissie ducks. Howard and Lissie both rise to a standing position as Howard wraps his arms around Lissie's waist and powers her into the ring apron with force, as Lissie screams. The referee is at a count of 8. Howard quickly walks over and rolls in the ring and back out to break the count. Howard then rolls Lissie back into the ring before entering the ring himself. Lissie grabs her by him arm and attempts to whip him to the ropes, but Howard resists by planting his feet. He sends her into the far ropes with everything he has. Lissie hits the ropes fast, so fast in fact that Howard can't get to his feet completely by the time she returns, and she grabs Howard around the neck before hitting a spinning neckbreaker on him in the middle of the ring. Howard grips at his neck, and Lissie ruthlessly pulls him up by the face, yelling at him "YOU THINK THIS IS EASY FOR ME? HUH??" and slapping him. Howard falls back. Lissie curses and shakes her head, a stricken look on her face.
Suddenly, "Midnight City" by M83 hits on the PA, and Samson Saltair and Peter Garvey come walking out onto the stage, wearing well-made suits. Lissie's eyes fly wide open, and she shakes her head, can be heard to be saying "No, No No No No No", and looking from Samson and Garvey back down at Howard in a panic. Samson points a stern finger at Lissie, ordering her to finish it. Lissie holds her hands out to placate them, saying that she has this, please let her take care of this, and she turns back to Howard with a new speed borne of desperation. She picks Black up and drops him with a side slam backbreaker. She covers off the Dreamchaser.
The referee: One...
Three - Kickout!!
Lissie's hands fly to her hair, making her look disheveled and frantic, and she looks over at the HR Department as they're now right at ringside. Her eyes are wide, and she looks down at Howard. Suddenly, a flash of rage passes over her face. She snarls down at Howard, how dare he put her in this kind of position in front of the HR Department. She peels him back up off the mat and boots him in the gut, making Howard stumble and drop to all fours. Howard seems to not want to fight her anymore. Lissie grips the arms of Howard for a double underhook, setting him in position for what will not be a Downfall signature move, but will in fact be a match-ending pedigree. But before Lissie can hit the Crown of Thorns, Howard backdrops out of it sending Lissie to the mat!! The crowd explodes!!
Billy: WHAT IN THE SHITFIRIN - HOW DOES HE HAVE ANYTHING LEFT??
Lissie yells in pain, holding her back. Howard kips up to his feet, and then he turns to stare sternly at Garvey and Saltair outside the ring, as if he's telling them that he holds them responsible for making them do this. He slowly turns back to Lissie, and a struggle passes across his face but he stuffs it down as he finally grits his teeth and charges her, BLASTING into her with a jumping knee strike. Lissie falls onto her back, completely wiped out by the move.
Chris Avery: I DON'T BELIEVE IT!! SEVENTH SEAL!! SEVENTH SEAL CONNECTS!!!
Billy: IT'S OVER!! IT HAS TO BE!!!
Cursing himself and visibly hating himself as he hesitates over it, Howard drops down, covering Lissie. HR Department, Garvey and Saltair exchange looks, Saltair shaking his head. The referee drops down for the count.
The referee: One... Two...
Three - Kickout!!
Howard falls onto his back, completely spent. He runs his hands over his face, in complete disbelief and the emotional rollercoaster of the match having had a grueling effect on him. The crowd is cheering both competitors on, trying to will them to get back into the contest, but both Lissie and Howard are so worn down that they lay side by side, recuperating and trying to get some air back into their lungs. There's almost a wistfulness to the way they're laying down there, a wish that it didn't have to come to this... for both of them. But they've reached a point of no return.
Howard rolls over, pushing himself up on his elbows. Lissie, blinking and shaking the cobwebs out, does so as well, looking across the ring at Howard with pain written large on her expression.
Chris Avery: With everything these two meant to each other... and everything they've put each other through tonight... how will anything ever be the same?
Both Lissie and Howard get to their feet, and then, as they stand, barely able to keep upright, Lissie dummies up and gives Howard a blistering forearm to the face, and then a chop to the chest, yelling "FIGHT ME, DAMN YOU!!" The next chop, however, is a bit more half-hearted, and her expression shows a lot of emotion, as she says, softer, "Fight me". Howard gives her a chop back, and then Lissie gives him a chop, trying to get him to exchange bombs. Howard chops her back, and then, his mouth becomes a firm line. He holds his fist back for a Mollywhop... but Lissie ducks it!! Lissie gives him a bicycle kick to the chest, knocking him back down. Lissie shakes her head at Howard, squinting and yelling "Why don't you just STAY DOWN??" Lissie grips at his arm, trying to pull him up and double underhook him yet again. Suddenly, though, Howard reverses, snapping her down and locking in the Kimura!! Lissie's eyes fly open wide, as she's locked into the submission, and on the outside, Garvey and Saltair exchange a shocked look, Lissie is seconds away from tapping.
Chris Avery: Kimura!! Kimura!! KIMURA IS LOCKED IN!!
Billy: She's tapping, Avery, Lissie is about to TAP!!
Lissie uses her free hand to frantically grab the ropes just when it looks like she's going to tap. The crowd gives a deflated sigh, as she uses the ropes to escape the Kimura. Lissie rolls around on the mat, holding the rope still, and looking up at Howard, and the referee checks on Lissie's arm. Behind the referee's back, Howard is too close to the side of the ropes that Samson Saltair is by, and Howard is nailed across the back by a surprise chairshot. Howard falls to his knees. The referee's ears shoot up, alerted by the impact of the chair, but Samson Saltair has surreptitiously disposed of the chair. Lissie knows what happened, though, and she looks at Samson Saltiar with a narrowed-eye expression, almost a betrayed look.
Chris Avery: DAMN THEM. DAMN THE HR DEPARTMENT. THEY TOOK THE FIGHT OUT OF LISSIE'S HANDS.
She looks over at Saltair and Garvey, standing there like silent sentries, and she also senses another presence walk out onto the ramp. Ash Blake herself, the World Champion walks out onto the ramp, an expectant expression on her face. Ash Blake seems to be telling Lissie to honor her Philidor obligations. Lissie looks down at Howard, who is on his knees holding his back. Ash Blake points at Howard Black, telling Lissie "Finish it. NOW." Lissie shakes her head, looking miserable, and then, she pulls Howard up.
Billy: What is she gonna do??
Lissie looks as if she can't win no matter what, and she gives a look up to the heavens, but she does underhook the arms. Finally, Lissie hits the Pedigree, and with a lot of effort, pushes Howard over.
Chris Avery: And now the Crown of Thorns, but it's academic.
Billy: Lissie does not look happy about this.
Ash Blake and the HR Department are looking on as Lissie sits over Howard, exhorting her to do the right thing. Lissie is forced to pin Howard.
The referee: One.....
Ding Ding Ding
Lissie sits up as "bad guy" starts playing, but Lissie has a tearful expression on her face. She looks down at Howard and apologizes. She kisses his forehead.
Saltair and Garvey are smiling and applauding, and Ash Blake stares down with a small smile of approval, even knowing how it's twisting the knife in Lissie.
Lissie does not celebrate, she does not play to the crowd or want her hand raised, but she does look at Howard again as she exits the ring. Lissie is flanked by Saltair and Garvey as they walk away from the ring.
The crowd is showering the Philidor group wth heavy boo's, and a few of the jeers start to get to Lissie, but she tries to shake it off. Still, she can't help but look back at the ring, as Howard is pushing himself up on his elbows.
Chris Avery: It was a pyrrhic victory for sure, and Lissie does not feel good about it... but, where does this leave Lissie with Philidor?
Billy: What about Howard?? Where is their soap opera going to lead?

A Bitter End: Two
AW XIII: Live at the Filmore (11-13-2020)
Anything Goes Lissie Hope vs. Adelaide Ainsworth
A short video montage begins playing, again with some final hype for the following match which has been six months in the making! The narrator speaks over different clips of where Adelaide Ainsworth and Lissie Hope started, where they’ve been, and how they stand now. From World Championship opponents to tag team champions; from bitter colleagues to best friends to hated enemies.
Nate Nytro: This story has seen all of the ebbs and flows of a Shakesperean novel, and we are just minutes away from the conclusion! Take it away Taylor!
Taylor Swift: Ladies and gentlemen… the following match… is ANYTHING GOES II!
The Fillmore is bathed in a pink light as the opening bars of "Savage" by Jesswar start playing
"I'm a savage, I'm a cunt Now all the bad bitches please move to the front I want that ass bare, baby plump Now all the bad bitches please move to the front
Addy walks out to the stage in all her glory, she’s carrying a gift box wrapped with a bow. She licks lips and plumps up her cleavage before completing a three hundred and sixty degree spin, when she faces the ring she bends over and touches the floor with one hand and slaps herself twice on the ass with her other hand.
Taylor Swift: Introducing first, on her way to the ring by way of Las Vegas, Nevada.... ADELAIDE AINSWORTH!
Addy stands up and smiles innocently and starts skipping to the ring. As the chorus kicks in, Adelaide licks her lips and picks an audience member, she grabs them by the hair and pulls their head all the way back before giving them a dirty sloppy kiss. She lets them go and slaps their face before continuing to skip along to the ring. She pulls herself onto the ring apron and does the splits to slide into the ring under the bottom rope.
She hands the gift box over to the timekeeper and holds up a finger, telling him not to open it. She then makes a throat slashing gesture as the timekeeper places the box under his seat for safekeeping.
Nate Nytro: It’s nice to see that Addy Ainsworth has maintained her carefree attitude! What a setting here, I imagine she’s going to get in some trouble later. But first, she has to survive this war!
Taylor Swift: And her opponent…
The thumping bass of Billie Eilish’s newest single released Thursday afternoon, “Therefore I Am”, starts pulverizing the sound system. Billie’s hushed vocals begin.
“I’m not your friend / or anything, damn”
The fans explode in unison as Lissie Hope appears on the stage, and even she has a smile on her face. It appears the energy of the Miami crowd is infecting the air tonight, and Lissie bounces up and down, feeding off the cheers from the crowd. She begins jogging down the ramp.
“Stop / What the hell you talking about? / Get my pretty name outta your mouth”
She slaps hands of a few front row fans, still having a bounce in her step as Taylor Swift attempts to introduce her over the crescendo of music.
Taylor Swift: ...arriving to the ring by way of New Orleans, Louisiana… LISSIE HOPE!
“Top of the world / But your world isn’t real / Your world’s an ideal”
Lissie climbs the stairs and turns to face the crowd, glowing in the shower of strobe lights. She seems to be having a great time right now, but the tense build-up of the match isn’t lost on Nate Nytro.
Nate Nytro: I have to say, this seems like a calm before a storm. We see both Addy and Lissie come down to the ring looking in great spirits, like they’re having such a great time, but you know… YOU JUST KNOW… that this can’t last forever.
“I don’t want press to put your name next to mine / We’re on different lines”
Lissie finally enters the ring, standing on the opposite corner from Addy Ainsworth. Lissie is chewing gum, and smirking at her opponent, really seeming to be enjoying the atmosphere. It’s a stark change in expectation given the nature of how this match came into fruition. The music fades to a hush before the crowd erupts into a cheer that takes the girls by surprise.
Nate Nytro: It’s pretty clear that this crowd hopes these girls can get past their differences tonight! Sometimes, there’s got to be a knock-out drag-out fight… but at the end of the day, you’re still family. Everyone can relate to that.
Both girls are taking in the cheers from the crowd. Lissie is kind of annoyed by the ovation, but Addy tries to direct Lissie’s attention to their desires. “See?” she mouths, but Lissie just shakes her head, and the ding of the time-keeper’s bell echoes throughout the air.
Nate Nytro: And we are about to get underway! Anything Goes!
Lissie arrives at the center of the ring but Addy is in no rush to meet her. “Come on!” Lissie cries out, but Addy stands stoicly in her corner. The referee doesn’t really know what to do, moving out of the line of vision, offering a clear path for them to get going. But even Lissie hesitates, not having anything standing in her way, but still something seems to be holding her back.
“Do what you gotta do,” Addy mouths, and extends her neck, offering her cheek to Lissie Hope. She even places her hands behind her back, and Lissie approaches cautiously. Addy squints her eyes, bracing for the impact, and Lissie rears back and slaps Addy clear across the face. The smack reverberates as Addy’s mouth pops open and she grabs her cheek. But she shakes it off as Lissie lands another one, this time backhanded just under her jaw!
Nate Nytro: That’s just disrespectful!
Lissie pushes her into the corner and goes for a right hand but notices that Addy isn’t putting up much resistance. Lissie’s fist is cocked back, ready to unload, but she screams out instead: “COME ON! FUCKING FIGHT!”
But Addy looks at Lissie with tears forming in her eyes and shakes her head no. Lissie palms her forehead and pushes her face backwards in frustration as she retreats a few steps, looking out at the crowd, and then up in the sky, looking for direction. Unable to decide whether to just go for it, but Addy’s refusal to fight is starting to get under her skin. Lissie turns back towards Addy, who decides to lie flat on her back. “PIN ME! PIN ME YA WANK! GET ON WITH IT!”
Nate Nytro: This is heartbreaking. These two have been through so much.
Lissie gets completely angry with this display and cocks her leg back and punts her right in the ribcage. Addy doubles over and Lissie drives her knee into Addy’s face. A backhand chop to the chest, followed by a whip to the ropes. On the return, Lissie bends over for a back body drop but Addy stops on a dime, about to deliver an upkick to Lissie’s chin, but she hesitates, not really wanting to. Lissie short-arm clotheslines Addy instead. Lissie angrily rolls out of the ring and reaches under the ring, searching for a steel chair! The crowd erupts with noise, not really any cheers or boos, but just audible reaction.
Nate Nytro: Oh boy, Lissie is looking for weapons now! She’s not taking no for an answer!
Lissie slides the chair in but Addy quickly intercepts the chair, with Lissie caught halfway sliding back in the ring! But instead… Addy throws the chair back outside! Lissie climbs to her feet and roars forward, pushing Addy backwards with tremendous force! Lissie then starts leveling her with right hands!
Nate Nytro: RIGHT HANDS!
After Addy eats several of them, she has no other choice… she returns with left hands!
Nate Nytro: LEFT HANDS!
Finally, there’s an exchange of action as both are connecting solidly, one after another! Addy ducks underneath a right hand and pulls Lissie in with a belly to belly suplex! Addy shakes her head, but slams a boot onto Lissie’s shoulder, and then picks her up to her feet. A slam on the turnbuckle, followed by a reverse cutter!
Nate Nytro: Addy Ainsworth is now in total control of this match! Her resistance to engaging couldn’t last forever!
Addy has finally reached her breaking point and slides out of the ring, pulling Lissie out by the boot and dropping her with a thud onto her back. Addy takes a step backwards and waits for Lissie to get to her feet, looking for a leaping front kick, but Lissie ducks underneath and grabs a hold, Addy in an awkward split position. A modified pump slam sends Addy crashing at ringside, her own knee dangerously close to her face. Lissie climbs up the staircase and when Addy gets to her feet, she leaps off and a Thesz-style press lands in top position, and she drives right hands and an elbow into Addy’s face for good measure! Lissie roles to the side and runs off the timekeeper, grabbing his chair from beneath him, exposing the box that Addy brought to ringside. Lissie doesn’t notice it however. Instead, she cocks it back, aiming for lights out! But Addy ducks, and the chair ricochets in Lissie’s hand after it hits the outside turnbuckle. She drops the chair and Addy slides her back into the ring. Addy connects with a chop, and roughly shoves her into the corner, clawing at her neck with a two-handed choke. The referee thinks about intervening, but… anything goes.
Nate Nytro: I think it’s safe to say that we have gotten past the hesitation and we’ve got a fist-fight now!
Lissie defensively tries to wrestle herself free, digging her nails into Addy’s wrist. She drives her knee into Addy’s gut but it doesn’t cause much damage; so she decides to get a little dirty, and drives the heel of her boot right into the top of her foot! Addy hops away in agony, and delivers an ugly elbow to the Lissie’s chin in response. This lights a fire under Lissie, who uses the ropes to lift her feet up and dropkick Addy in the face. She then hops onto the middle rope and jumps off, taking Addy down with a headscissors. This sends Addy flying out of the ring and Lissie takes no time at all to bounce off the ropes and fly through the middle, landing a suicide clothesline! The fans rise to their feet with the uptick in energy, as Lissie gives Addy a kick to the back to keep her down. She then grabs the steel chair Addy tossed out of the ring earlier, and wastes no time at all, driving it down on Addy’s back with a crack!
Nate Nytro: Holy crap! This just turned violent in a hurry! What was mostly an emotional striking exchange, with an array of kicks and punches and slaps… Lissie is utilizing the steel now!
Another shot to Addy’s back! Lissie then flips Addy over with her boot and uses the frame of the chair to crush it over Addy’s ankle! Twice! Three times! Addy is grabbing at her foot, swelling up by the second! She tosses the chair aside and picks Addy up by the hair, and she’s hobbling around on a busted up ankle. She tries to fight Lissie off but Lissie drives her face into the barricade, before clotheslining her, upending her over the railing and into the crowd! Addy uses the barricade to brace herself as Lissie grabs her by the head, trying to suplex her back ringside. But Addy counters it, and suplex Lissie onto the cold cement instead! Lissie’s wind is knocked out and she’s struggling to catch her breath. Addy grabs a beer from a fan and starts chugging it, the fans erupting in laughter and cheers.
Nate Nytro: I think Addy needs a drink after this one, but she couldn’t wait till later!
Lissie gets to her feet and lunges, knocking the cup back into Addy’s face and sending the liquid flying everywhere, including Addy’s eyes! This blinds her just enough for Lissie to clothesline Addy back over the barricade and into the timekeeper’s area, which sends him running for his life. Lissie notices the box on the floor, the one Addy brought to ringside. The camera zooms in and on the tag, it says “For Lissie.”
Nate Nytro: This is eerie! What’s in the box? What’s in the box? Why am I talking like Brad Pitt?? I hope it’s not a human head.
Lissie is confused by this ‘gift’ Addy brought to ringside. As Addy braces herself, mostly on one foot, she stands back and watches as Lissie unties the ribbon. Her eyes begin welling up as Lissie removes the lid and takes a peak inside. Her eyes widen and she looks over at Addy, who says “do what ya got ta do. There’s one left.” Lissie doesn’t remove the contents, and the cameraman is winning no awards this time because he doesn’t catch a glimpse of what’s inside before Lissie places the top back on it and sets it aside.
Nate Nytro: I don’t know what was in there but it seems to have Lissie shaken up!
Lissie bends at the waist, hands on her knees, completely breathless. Addy slowly approaches, placing a hand on Lissie’s shoulder, saying something in her ear but that the camera doesn’t catch. But out of nowhere, Lissie uppercuts with a closed fist, rattling Addy’s jaw! Addy backpedals and Lissie punches her again, this time right in the eyesocket! Addy rolls back into the ring to recover, and Lissie reaches under the ring… pulling out a SLEDGEHAMMER!
Nate Nytro: Oh my goodness. Turn off your television sets if your children are watching, folks. This is not for the faint of hearts, but for the blackest of them.
Lissie slides into the ring and drills Addy with a boot to the face. Her lips are busted open now and Lissie follows it up by punting right into Addy’s ribcage. Addy folds up into the fetal position and Lissie stands over her back now as Addy tries to crawl to safety. She pushes Addy’s head back down with her boot, and it looks like she’s setting her up for a curbstomp! But before she delivers the final strike, the hushed crowd grows ecstatic as Sara Pettis is trying to make it down to the ring as fast as she can despite the beating she took earlier tonight! She rolls into the ring and pushes Lissie backwards, trying to reason with her! The camera picks up a little of what she’s telling her: “you can’t do this! You’re turning into them!” Lissie angrily yells back for Sara to move, to leave the ring, as Addy pulls herself up slowly. Sara obliges, crawling back out of the ring, hoping she was able to talk some sense into Lissie Hope.
Nate Nytro: There is so much emotion in the ring right now, folks. We all know the heavy hearts that are bleeding out right now. This has to end soon, these warriors need to live to fight another day! And the heart of Sara Pettis, who needed medical attention earlier, but she still managed to make her way down here for her friends!
As Sara backpedals up the ramp, Addy is holding herself up using the top rope. Lissie looks at Addy, then back at Sara, before delivering a roundhouse kick to Addy’s face which sends her over the top rope-- but she doesn’t make it all the way over! Her hands are hooked in the middle and top ropes, and she’s trapped! She can’t move! She can’t escape. The arena is in dead silence as Lissie picks up the sledgehammer, staring at her foe trapped in the ropes!
Nate Nytro: Lissie! Don’t do this!
Lissie is choking up on the head of the hammer, and a mixture of sweat and tears drip from her face to the canvas. Addy’s trying desperately to unhook herself… until she stops! She stops fighting, resigned to her fate! Her head is completely exposed, and Lissie has the hammer in an offensive posture! She takes a step back, readying herself to flatten Addy’s face, but the cameraman really wants to win his fucking award and with the shot from behind, it catches a young, crying fan in the front rows, sitting on her father’s shoulders. She’s wearing a black t-shirt with the word “Hero” embroidered in white, one of Lissie’s t-shirts! Lissie sees the traumatized fan and stops in her tracks, dropping the hammer down to her feet!
Nate Nytro: Thank goodness. Christ almighty.
Addy finally manages to free herself from being tied up in the ropes. Lissie charges forward and is met with a desperate flailing kick to the midsection. Addy, still working off an injured ankle, kicks her legs up as Lissie comes in dropping an elbow, and locks her legs around Lissie’s sternum, a modified armbar! Lissie is fighting through it but Addy shifts her hips and like an anaconda is able to squeeze her legs into Lissie’s throat, with her arm exposed! Addy pushes out on her elbow at an awkward angle as Lissie cries out in agony, desperately reaching for the ropes for leverage, even if the ropes won’t break the submission tonight!
Lissie uses all the leverage she can muster to pull herself through the ropes, landing on the outside with a thud. This allows her freedom from the submission though. Addy slowly pulls herself up as Lissie as apprehensive of sliding back into the ring, but she finally does, bringing a chair in the ring with her. Lissie is quicker to her feet, though even if both of them are exhausted. Before she can raise the chair up though, something comes flying through the air, landing at her feet and she stops in her tracks. It’s a single black rose. Lissie’s concentration is broken for just a second, but she steps over the rose swinging the steel chair… only to be leveled with the Heartless superkick out of nowhere!
Lissie catches her leg, she spins her around, and right into the CROWN OF THORNS! Out of nowhere! She hooks the leg!
Nate Nytro: THIS ONE IS OVER, FOLKS! ADDY AINSWORTH PUT UP A HELL OF A FIGHT, BUT THIS WAR BELONGED TO LISSIE HOPE! I THINK WE CAN ALL REST EASY KNOWING LISSIE’S CONSCIENCE NEVER ALLOWED HER TO GO OVER THE LINE! AND THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT!
Lissie stands in the corner completely exhausted, physically and emotionally, and hardly feeling like a winner at all. She drops to her knees and watches as Addy rolls out of the ring, giving Lissie the space to process everything that happened. Addy hobbles up the ramp, her eyes never leaving Lissie’s, both of them beginning to well up.
Nate Nytro: They both said in the lead up to the match, winning here is a formality. There are no winners or losers in this one; there are no heroes or villains; this was simply a war.
Both women seem to be communicating with each other in an unspoken fashion as Addy hobbles up the ramp. She turns her back and Lissie exits the ring, heading straight for the timekeeper!
Nate Nytro: WAIT! C’MON LISSIE!
She grabs the box and starts running after Addy! But much to everyone’s surprise, she doesn’t attack! Instead, she gets ahead of her and comes face to face with Addy, pushing the box into her chest! She then grabs Addy by the back of the head and they come forehead to forehead, talking to each other, crying to each other, and finally… Addy heads up the ramp first to allow Lissie to bask for a few more moments in victory.
Nate Nytro: This didn’t end up being a three-hour epic that landed in all corners of the arena like Lissie and Dandy a year ago. But this one was all about heart. All about love, especially the obvious affection these two have for one another. Their partnership may be over, but there might be a chance that we see these two reconcile. We all could use a glimmer of hope sometimes. We’ll be right back.

The Legend Begins
AW Uprising: All-In (08-18-2019)
Lissie Hope vs. Claire Hawkins vs. Derrick Vayden vs. LA Johnny Stylez vs. Leviathan vs. QDT vs. Teo Blaze vs. Allison Riggs-Preston
Adilene Floyd: It's time for your main event.. and it's for.. THE ALL-IN BRIEFCASE!
Adilene Floyd: Inside the All-In briefcase is a contract giving you a World Championship match anytime and anyplace in the next 364 days!
The arena goes black as night as hot pink and white lights begin to shine down on the arena floor below as the crowd begins to go wild as "Jekyll And Hyde" by Five Finger Death Punch comes blaring out of the PA system. Pink smoke began to roll from beneath the stage as the haze began to fill the air.
There's just so much God damned weight on my shoulders All I'm trying to do is live my motherfucking life Supposed to be happy, but I'm only getting colder Wear a smile on my face, but there's a demon inside There's just so much God damned weight on my shoulders All I'm trying to do is live my motherfucking life Supposed to be happy, but I'm only getting colder Wear a smile on my face, but there's a demon inside
She stepped out of the back to a huge pop from the crowd. Allison Riggs-Preston comes out looking like she’s ready for business, she was dressed in a pair of wrestling tights that came down to her knees, hot pink in color and a hot pink bustier with diamonds encrusted in the material. Her long blonde hair was pulled back in a single braid.. She walked out stood at the top of the ramp way as behind her three different colors of pink pyros rained down behind her giving the fans their photo op.
Oh, yo, yo, there's a demon inside Oh, yo, yo, just like Jekyll and Hyde Oh, yo, yo, all this anger inside Oh, yo, yo, I feel like Jekyll and Hyde
Alison looked over her shoulder as her pyros turned red and everyone’s favorite redhead stepped from the back. VooDoo was dressed the same as her protege except for all in black. Her long red hair was pulled back in a tight braid, a slight smile on her lips that spoke of untold pleasures.
Is there so much God damned weight on your shoulders That you can't just live your motherfucking life The story's getting old and my heart is getting colder I just wanna be Jekyll, but I'm always fighting Hyde You've got rocks in your head, I can hear them rolling 'round You can say that you're above it, but you're always falling down Is there a method to your madness? Is it all about pride? Everyone I know, they've got a demon inside
The pair started for the ring, FemDom manager VooDoo beside Allison, letting her lead. All around them the fans began to cheer, the look on both their faces let you know that they were ready for the business at hand.
If I wasn't so deranged, could I ever face the pain? If I ever were to change, would the song remain the same? Oh, yo, yo All I'm trying to do is live my motherfucking life Oh, yo, yo Wear a smile on my face, but there's a demon inside Oh, yo, yo, there's a demon inside Oh, yo, yo, just like Jekyll and Hyde Oh, yo, yo, all this anger inside Oh, yo, yo, I feel like Jekyll and Hyde
She slid beneath the ring ropes and came to her feet, graceful as a giant cat. She walked around the ring until she came to a stop in the center and all four ring posts shoot up with hot pink and white pyros. Allison took to her corner and got ready for business to begin and VooDoo joined her in her corner outside the ring.
All at once, a long guitar riff screams throughout the arena as the audience explodes in an appreciative show of recognition. Images of bright flames illuminate the entrance ramp as Motley Crue's "Kickstart my Heart" echoes all throughout the building. The high energy song whips the crowd into a frenzy of anticipation, and just as the music reaches it's height-
Teo Blaze leaps onto the ramp! He lands with a flourish, holding his hands out to the crowd with an ear to ear smile across his face, his eyes covered by his signature red sunglasses. He turns towards the fans and gestures them to cheer louder, which only amplifies the already roaring sound. He nods appreciatively and begins walking towards the ramp, slapping high fives on any outstretched hands he comes across. He reaches the entrance ramp, and seems to consider for a moment before leaping up and grabbing the top rope! With a quick burst of energy, he flips nimbly over the rope into a forward roll, landing in a pose out of an action movie. He stands up, smiling, and walks towards the corner, slowly cupping his hands to his ear to listen to the cheers. Finally, and with a dramatic gesture, he removes his glasses, tossing them into the front row as he turns back to prepare for his match.
Billy: The fans voted Teo Blaze in and he's ready for action here tonight!
Chris Avery: Huge opportunity for Teo in Action Wrestling! Big matches is where Teo belongs!
~*~ 4:19 ~*~ -GoT- -A- -MiNuTe?!?-
-Flashes over the titantron, as green smoke begins to fill the entry way. The arena goes completely blackâ€¦and then
-Looking Back At Me- -I See That I Never Really Got It Right- - I Never Stopped To Think Of You- -I'm Always Wrapped Up In Things I Cannot Win- -You Are The Antidote That Gets Me By- - Something Strong Like A Drug That Gets Me- -H.I.G.H.-
Cold by Crossfade plays over the loud speaker as out struts the Paragona of Americana , LA Johnny Stylez. Stylez moves with the rhythm of the music while yelling at the crowd. Naturally Stylez is met with a course of boos so loud that it almost shakes the arena. Stylez is dressed in a pair of baggy cargo pants and he is wearing a P.o.P T-shirt Outsiderâ€™s style. On the front of the shirt is P.o.P in white bold letters with (Players of Perfection) written in captions. Stylez is wearing a pair of silver oakleys and he has a cigarette hanging from his lips. After dancing to his music and taunting the fans, Stylez makes his way down the ramp.
-What I Really Meant To Say- -Is That I'm Sorry For The Way- -I AM- -NeVeR MeAnT To Be- -So Cold-
Stylez arrogantly struts to the ring, stopping to blow smoke in the face of a few fans sitting front row. Stylez then puts his cigarette out, and slides in the ring on his stomach. He then shoots up and immeadily begins talking trash to the fans, who are letting him have it. Stylez walks up to the ring announcer and playfully slaps them over the head a few times, before walking over to the turnbuckle and laying across it pretending to fall asleep..
Billy: He's a goofball isn't he?!
Chris Avery: He's a dangerous goofball, though! You gotta watch your back cause in an instant Stylez can win the match like that!
Billy: SnAp Ur FinGerZz
The lights dim to that familiar hue of purple. The fans immediately recognize the duplicitous sellout and begin to boo accordingly, as the entrance video begins playing on the big screen. The crackly, distorted voice of Billie Eilish is heard as the song begins from the bridge.
"I'm the baaaaaaad guy... DUH!"
The jangly dance tune is synchronized with pulsating strobe lights as Lissie Hope, now the Duchess of the Royal Family, appears from behind the curtain. Fans immediately begin raining down boos and Lissie stands at the top of the ramp, fanning with her hands, relishing in the new negative attention. She closes her eyes for a few seconds and inhales deeply, really antagonizing them. As the song inches towards the verse, Lissie opens her eyes. Awakened.
"I like it when you take control / Even if you know that you don't own me / I'll let you play the role / I'll be your animal"
Lissie confidently strides down the ramp, punctuating every step by jawing at the front-row fans. She reaches the middle of the ramp and one sign grabs her attention: it says "Lissie... NOPE!" and Lissie takes a second to laugh in the betrayed fan's face. She then starts reading more signs, really hyping up her new villainy by mouthing "you see that?" at the camera. She gets to one that says "TRAITOR!" and pulls the poster board out of the girl's hands, ripping it up and tossing it back in her face.
"So you're a tough guy / Like it really rough guy / Just can't get enough guy / Chest always so puffed guy"
Lissie reaches ringside and rolls underneath the bottom rope, hopping up to her feet. She skips over to the corner and ascends the second rope, inviting all of the negativity from the people who once cheered her on. She closes her eyes again, savoring the moment.
"I'm that bad type / Make your momma sad type / Make your girlfriend mad type / Might seduce your dad type / I'm the baaaaaaad guy... DUH!"
The bridge fades to a hush as hops back down into the ring, ready to get the match started.
(No prisoners... and no regrets... You are the best. You are... the last one standing!)
"Last One Standing" by WattWhite blares over the arena speakers as the crowd goes ballistic.
Out comes Derrick Vayden. He strides from behind the curtain, a confident smile on his face. He stands at the top of the ramp, gazing out into the sea of Action Wrestling fans as they shower him with cheers.
(Two fists and fire in your blood is all you need now! Enter the ring unknown and listen to the screams now!)
Vayden begins marching down the ramp, taking time to slap hands with young fans in the front row. A few lucky fans are able to get a picture with the superstar.
Adilene Floyd: And now, making his way to the ring... From Milwaukee Wisconsin, weighing in at 200 pounds... Derrick... Vayden!
Vayden rounds the ring and jumps up onto the commentary table. He yells into the faces of the commentators, "Are you ready?! Let's fuckin' go!" before jumping down and scaling the turnbuckle, posing with arms out to the side, soaking in the admiration of the Action Wrestling faithful.
(Bring the smoke and the lightning... No prisoners and no regrets you're the best, you're gonna be the last one standing! We fight! We fight! VICTORY!)
Vayden jumps down from the top rope, removes his t-shirt, and tosses it into the crowd..
Billy: These two are dark horses, don't get me wrong!
Chris Avery: Lissie Hope and Derrick Vayden can REALLY show the world and prove it to everyone here they belong!
The lights within the arena dim down until the arena is enarly engulfed in darkness as Radiohead's "Planet Telex" begins to play through the speaker system. As the music plays, an image of the former planet Pluto appears on the titantron screen. Lingering for only a second or two before moving one, the rest of the planets are shown until Earth is reached. Once there, the camera lingers for a moment before zooming in until the camera has been engulfed by the clouds. By this time the people in the arena have begun to cheer for Action Wrestling's premiere stabe, The Guardians. However, and much to the startlement of the fans, an eair peircing wail echos throughout the arena that causes everything to go pitch black. After a few moments the intro to "Metal" hits the speaker system. Five seconds later the heavier beats hit and the lights begin to violently strobe, revealing somebody standing at the top of the rampway. For the next forty-four seconds, the person merely stood there, slightly hunched down and violently swing their head from side to side. Causing their hair to fling about during the near seizure-inducing light show. At the forty-fifth second of the song the light show suddenly ends and leaves everyone in the arena shrouded darkness for roughly five seconds before all the lights came on as they normally were. Once the lights come on the person that was standing at the top of the ramp, threw their head up until they were leaning backward slightly, bellowing out a save guttural scream that would surprise anybody. Once that was over with the person leaned forward and revealed themselves to be Claire Hawkins! With the heavy beats of the song pounding throughout the arena, Claire walked down the ramp with purpose.
Adilene Floyd: Making her way to the ring, from Salem, Massachusetts, weighing in at 145 pounds, she is "The Witch".....CLAIRE.....HAWKINS!!
Once she reached the ringside area Claire paused for a moment to look at the cameraman that had dared to get close enough to get a good shot of her face. With a vicious snarl, Claire let out another one of those screams and forced the cameraman to quickly backpedal. Feeling pleased with herself, Claire made her way over to the steps and into the ring. Once she was in the ring she walked to the side of the ring where the hard camera was and stepped onto the second rope, leaned forward a little to keep her balance, and held her arms up while she held up in the "Devil Horns" gesture as pyro shot up from the ring posts. All the while bellowing out that same savage, guttural scream. With the theatrics over and done with it was time to focus on the match and as such Claire stepped down from the rope and performed any last second stretches she felt she needed to do.
Chris Avery: We'll see what Claire Hawkins can do! One of the early qualifiers for this match! She deserves to be here no doubt.
An ominous music box chimes. “Disguise” by Motionless In White blares out as Guillotine, complete with intimidating executioner’s mask, walks out swiftly to the ring.
Adilene Floyd: Heading to the ring, from Bognor Regis, England, weighing 212 pounds... GUILLLLOTINE!
Billy: I'm telling you, he's creepier than ever.. Something just isn't right..
A broken music box music starts to play as the lights flicker and turn off. The music cuts off as red lights shine on the entrance ramp, various people in all different shapes and sizes stand along the ramp in the same mask as William Moor. “Boogeyman” by King 810 hits the PA as balloons start flooding the stage, they float up into the night sky, and underneath them all appears T̨̡̖̙H̗͕̗͙̥̕E̶̤̻̝̙͈ ̨̱͇̮̠̕͡ͅL̢̘̱̀E̻̯̙̝͙͢V̢̰̜̭̩̕Í̢̦͈̝̼A̠̟̳̗̻̜ͅT̢̖̯͔͍̘͚̪̀H͓͙͙̥̩̖͇̀͘Ą̴͚̜͍̗̭̳̼̤N̨̘̮̺̰͕̺.
Adilene Floyd: On his way to the ring…from The Everglades…standing at six foot two and weighing at two hundred and fifty five pounds…THE LEVIATHAN!!!!!
He starts lumbering down the ramp.. He stops at the end of the ramp, soaking in the arena, before sliding under the bottom rope and slithering towards the center of the ring. He whips his hood off and throws his arms out to the side before he takes his coat off and awaits the start of the match.
Chris Avery: Here's everyones pick to win the damn thing! A former World Champion, the first Havoc Rumble winner, he can add All-In to his list of accomplishments!
The music fades as an official on the outside hands the senior official in the ring the All-In briefcase.
All 8 superstars stand in the ring and the crowd is on their feet hooting and hollering. The senior official steps into the ring and has the golden briefcase. He shows each wrestler the briefcase..
Billy: Folks, thats what its all about right now for those 8.. For Leviathan, it's a chance at returning to the top.. for many of these wrestlers its an opportunity to prove their worth, and for guys like Vayden, or Hawkins.. it's their ticket to fortune and fame of which they haven't experienced yet..
Chris Avery: Wow, Billy, you're giving me goosebumps..
Billy: I'm not overstating it here folks, listen to me and listen good.. the All-In briefcase is your ticket to the main event and one of these 8 superstars, these brilliant, these athletic, these talented superstars.. one of them is making their mark tonight.. tonight at Uprising: All-In, one of these wrestlers shakes up the roster and puts the World Champion on notice.
Chris Avery: Theres the All-In briefcase being connected to the ring harness.. and there it goes being lifted up!
Billy: This is All-In, folks! It's now or never for some of these wrestlers, lets find out who punches their ticket to the main event!
Ding ding ding.
Claire Hawkins throws herself across the ring and punches Allison right in the head and we're off to the races! Claire has Allison in the corner and shes hitting forearm after forearm, and she hits a 360 forearm and smashes her in the face in the corner! Meanwhile as thats happening Vayden and Teo Blaze are going at it and head to a separate corner and exhange punches and kicks! Meanwhile as those two situations are happening Leviathan and Stylez are trading blows and Stylez hits Leviathan low in the gut and shitcans him through the ropes out of the ring and Stylez rolls out of the ring and fights him up the ramp. Guillotine and Lissie trade blows until Lissie throws Guillotine into the ropes and hits a dropkick sending Guillotine to the apron over the top rope! Thats when Lissie is grabbed from behind for a suplex by Claire! Vayden throws Teo and Teo runs into Guillotine knocking him off the apron sending him crashing down! Claire gets up and runs at Teo but he back body drops her over the top rope to the outside and then does the same to Vayden! Teo notices a moment to go AIRBORNE, so he hits the ropes but is clotheslined so hard by Lissie he's turned inside and out! Lissie rolls out of the ring smiling for what she just did and Stylez hits her from behind on the outside! The action continues..
Billy: What a start to this match! Whoever can get the advantage early will set the tone for sure!
Chris Avery: Thats right, the object of this match is to do and use whatever you can to destroy your opponents without using much energy so you can climb the ladder!
Most of the superstars are now brawling on the ramp as most of them trade rights and lefts and body shots into each other! Its Stylez more or less leading the way as he now has a smaller ladder and hes using it to beat down anyone and everyone that stands in his way! Guillotine, Leviathan, Lissie, Allison, and Claire are all knocked down by Stylez using this smaller ladder like a baseball bat basically. He goes off to the side of the stage where he notices a table and he grabs it. The crowd goes apeshit as he sets up the table on top of the stage.
Chris Avery: The action has spilled over onto the stage!
Stylez is laughing like a maniac and tries to put Lissie through the table but she fights out of it and rakes the eyes! She turns him around and Leviathan hits a BROSEIDON punch on Stylez and he goes down. Guillotine picks up Stylez and lays him on the table and the crowd realizes Teo is climbing a huge 30 foot ladder on the stage as part of the decoration! The crowd is going crazy as Teo is climbing up.
Billy: What is he thinking!?
Chris Avery: HIGH RISK - HUGE REWARD!
Stylez rolls off the table and begins to brawl with a few others and the crowd is going crazy as Allison Preston is up on the same ladder on the same side as Teo climbing up behind him! Teo notices and tries getting up and over the top of the ladder to fight her off but she blocks his kicks and slaps him in the face! It stuns him for just enough time for her to shove him in the chest and he FALLS OFF THE THIRTY FOOT LADDER THROUGH THE TABLE!
Billy: SHITFIRE TEO BLAZE IS BROKEN IN HALF!
The crowd is on their feet HOLY SHITTING the holy shit out of themselves. Even the other wrestlers stop for a second and look at Teo Blaze in a heap of table debris not moving. Allison is climbing down the ladder not even soaking in the boos. She can care less. The crowd quickly turns its attention in the ring as Vayden has a ladder set up!
Chris Avery: VAYDEN TAKING ADVANTAGE!
Vayden starts to climb the ladder but Claire brings him back down and hits a Russian Leg Sweep on the mat! A few other superstars get into the ring and start brawling around the ladder as it gets knocked over!
Thats when we notice some EMTs on the stage checking on Teo Blazes' condition.
Billy: Oh that doesn't look good for Teo! Check the replays.
Replays show Teo falling off the thirty foot ladder through the single table onto the stage! It looks stiff as fuck and it looks like it hurt.
Chris Avery: My god, I hope Teo is ok. Jesus that's not good.
Teo is being lifted up by EMTs and put onto a stretcher while producers kneel down next to him checking on his condition.
Meanwhile in the ring, the action is heating up when...
CULTURE SHOCK music hits!
Billy: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!
Corey Bull and OBLIVION walk out from behind the curtain and step through the huddled up EMTs and officials checking on Teo on the stretcher and stand on the stage soaking in their mixed reactions. They walk down the ramp and they stop and start smiling as some of the guys in the ring are confused.
Billy: WAIT LOOK OUT!
SCOTT SLAYER JUMPS THE RAILING AND SLIDES INTO THE RING!
Chris Avery: HE HAS HIS CROWBAR!
He swings the crowbar and hits Guillotine in the back and kicks him down! He ducks Leviathans clothesline and he gets a crowbar to the midsection from Slayer as well!
Oblivion and Bull hit the ring and grab Vayden by the throat, they both CHOKESLAM HIM STRAIGHT TO FUCKING HELL! Vayden bounces off the canvas and rolls out of the ring.
Chris Avery: WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!
Bull kicks Allison in the face sending her through the ropes to the outside!
Slayer picks up Lissie and throws her straight into Bull who lifts her up into the air and Oblivion catches her and spinebusters her STRAIGHT DOWN onto the canvas!
Billy: JESUS CHRIST! CULTURE SHOCK IS MAKING A STATEMENT!
Stylez is thrown into a clothesline from hell from Oblivion, and Corey Bull is already hitting the ropes as he leaps in the air with a huge back splash on Stylez! He rolls out of the ring as Bull, Oblivion and Slayer all laugh...
Thats when Bull notices Claire Hawkins!
Billy: GET OUT OF THERE, CLAIRE!
She looks around and the crowd starts cheering her on for showing guts and courage!
Oblivion steps closer as does Slayer.. Bull licks his lips like he's about to feast on some witch meat.
Billy: Not looking good for Claire!
Bull stops and puts out his arm with a balled up fist.
Chris Avery: Huh!?
Oblivion meets Bulls fist with a fist of his own... Slayer does the same.
Claire smiles and puts her fist into their three...
Billy: WHAT?! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE SHITTING ME!
Chris Avery: CLAIRE IS JOINING CULTURE SHOCK?! WHAT THE FUDGE BROWNIE?!
The four of them smile as Claire looks up at the All-In briefcase. Bull shakes his head no and mouths "Come with me." They smile and Claire follows suit.
Culture Shock slowly exit the ring and they walk up the ramp together and get to the stage. They all turn towards the ring and pose as a foursome group.
Billy: SLAYER RETURNS AND THEY HAVE CLAIRE HAWKINS NOW?! AND WHY ARE THEY LEAVING?!
Chris Avery: DID YOU NOT SEE WHAT CULTURE SHOCK DID TO RYAN LOCKHART A FEW WEEKS AGO? WHAT THEY DID TO CASEY HOLLIDAY?! THE ALL-IN BRIEFCASE IS BENEATH THEM! CULTURE SHOCK LOOKS TO HAVE A MUCH LARGER PLAN IN PLACE IF YOU ASK ME!
Culture Shock steps back through the huddled up EMTs and officials still tending to Teo on the stretcher and exit through the curtain.
The crowds focus is back on Allison who is noticing everyone out on the outside of the ring. She slides in a ladder and rolls in slowly. The crowd is booing as she stands it up in the middle of the ring. Shes holding her jaw from that vicious Corey Bull big boot and thats when the CROWD LOSES THEIR SHIT.
Billy: YOU HAVE GOT TO BE SHITTING ME!
Teo Blaze is standing up and being held back by officials.
Chris Avery: HOW IS HE STANDING!?
Billy: TEO IS MADE OF STEEL!
Teo is shrugging off and shoving passed officials as Allison is climbing up the ladder! Teo hobbles down the ramp and then hops on one leg and slides into the ring!
Billy: NO WAY!! TEO IS GOING UP!
Teo gets to the ladder and climbs up the one side and the crowd is losing their shit for this. Teo gets to the top and Allison has a right hand for him! Another right hand! A third right hand and then a left hand slap! Allison grabs Teo by the head and pulls him in close. Allison yells "YOU'RE NOT MADE FOR THIS.." and goes to slap him again but Teo blocks it! The crowd pops! Teo hits a right hand! A right hand! and Allison goes for another slap but Teo blocks it and grabs her for a suplex!
Chris Avery: DONT DO IT TEO DONT DO IT!
Teo lifts her up and off the ladder and Teo and Allison fall off the ladder inside the ring as Teo hits a suplex from the top of it!
The crowd pops but Teo hits hard and rolls out of the ring!
Billy: WHAT THE HELL!!
Chris Avery: TEO WAS VOTED INTO THIS MATCH AND HE HASNT FORGOTTEN THAT! THE FANS WANTED HIM IN AND HES FIGHTING FOR THEM TOO!
The crowd goes crazy as Vayden gets into the ring but so does Lissie Hope. Vayden hits Lissie with a kick and goes for a DDT but Lissie floats around Vayden with his arm behind his back and ripcords him into a 180 knee to the face! Lissie backs herself into the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Vayden ducks and catches her with his arm and hits a Rock Bottom! The crowd pops as Vayden pops and Guillotine jumps off the top rope hitting a dropkick on Vayden sending him backwards! Vayden gets into the corner and to his feet and Guillotine is already in midair with a huge body stinger splash into the corner putting Vayden down! Guillotine goes to the top rope and is looking for that special leg drop but Lissie leaps to the top rope and grabs Guillotine and HITS A SPANISH FLY OFF THE TOP ROPE!
The crowd is applauding the excellent wrestling that just took place as Stylez rolls into the ring with another ladder. He pulls it in and sets it up in the middle of the ring and then picks up Lissie and throws her out of the ring. He grabs Guillotine and throws him out of the ring. He picks up Vayden and Vayden explodes with offense! Lefts and rights! A forearm sends Stylez reeling back and Vayden hits a hurricanrana flipping Stylez down! Vayden sizes Stylez up and hits the Rough Rider running flying leg drop move and Stylez is out and rolls out of the ring!
Chris Avery: Vayden! This is your time! Do it baby!
The crowd loses their minds as Vayden turns and points to the All-In briefcase. He climbs the ladder and reaches to the top. He reaches up.
The lights go out.
Weird screeching sound.
All of a sudden theres a 100 dead bodies hanging from the ceiling swinging around in the dark.
The lights come back on and the dead bodies have disappeared like it was some sort of weird trick.
The crowd pops because as the lights come back, Leviathan is standing on the ladder in front of Vayden!
Billy: OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL?!
The creepiest of creepypasta and Leviathan starts choking Vayden with the Mandible Claw!
Chris Avery: JESUS CHRIST!
Vayden can't break Leviathans powerful grasp as he's losing oxygen with Leviathans fingers down his throat! Vayden finally passes out and falls off the ladder! Leviathan has a clear path to the All-In briefcase!
Billy: OH HERE WE GO!
He reaches up but Stylez is trying to shake the ladder! That's when Lissie Hope climbs up the ladder and trades blows with Leviathan straight up! He tries to grab her for a Mandible Claw but she breaks the hold and hits a kick to the side of the head! He's stunned but Stylez climbs up behind Leviathan and drags him down to the mat. He turns him around and goes for a DDT but Leviathan comes-to and throws Stylez to the ropes and lets him crash into the ladder knocking Lissie down off of it! She lands on her feet though!
Stylez turns around and Guillotine is in the ring and hits a superkick to the jaw of Stylez and he stumbles and turns into a BROSEIDON PUNCH!
Lissie runs but Guillotine ducks and Leviathan ducks and throws Lissie into the corner chest first! She stumbles back and Leviathan hits a back suplex as Guillotine jumps off the top rope and hits a Guillotine Leg Drop onto Lissie!
Billy: Oh what! These two work so damn well together!
Guillotine turns around and Leviathan grabs him for a hug but he bends him back, he smiles and kisses him on the forehead and goes for (sister abigail) but Guillotine throws Leviathan off!
The crowd stops cheering and OOOOOOOHs
Billy: OH SHITFIRE! IS THIS WHAT I THINK IT IS?!
Chris Avery: IS THIS THE END OF THEM AS A TEAM?!
Billy: LEVIATHAN JUST TRIED TO PUT GUILLOTINE DOWN!
The two of them look at each other dead in the eyes and step closer. The crowd is wanting these two to finally go at it! Their relationship, friendship, tagteam'ship has been so god damn weird, but so fucking entertaining, ITS JUST TIME FOR THESE TWO TO GO AT IT..
Allison from behind hits Guillotine and he knocks Leviathan down! Guillotine turns around and she superkicks him square in the jaw and he goes down!
Lissie Hope slides into the ring but she kicks Lissie in the gut and hits a piledriver on her!
Billy: OH THE ENFORCER!
Vayden rolls in and Allison picks him up and drops him on the top rope and stuns him for a bit before she picks him up into a piledriver and drops him down head first onto the mat!
She gets up taunting and turns around and The Habanero Hurricane is connected from Teo Blaze and Allison is sent through the ropes!
Billy: HOW IS TEO STILL ALIVE?!
Guillotine gets up and Teo picks him up hitting a belly to belly side suplex! Teo gets back to his feet feeling the crowds energy and Stylez is in the ring and goes for a clothesline but Teo ducks and climbs up the ladder a few rungs and moonsaults back and lands on Stylez knocking him down as soon as he rebounded off the ropes!
The crowd pops again as Teo then runs and suicide dives through the ropes into Leviathan and Lissie Hope taking both of them down!
Teo slides back into the ring and is MET WITH A STEEL CHAIR TO THE FACE BY STYLEZ!
Billy: HOLY SHIT FIRE TEO IS KNOCKED OUT COLD!
Stylez talks shit as Teo is booted out of the ring and that might do it.
Chris Avery: Hes done. We need EMTs back! We need EMTs NOW!
Stylez sets up the ladder in the middle of the ring and adjusts it. He begins to climb up the ladder.
Billy: Oh shit! Stylez is on his way to making history for himself!
Stylez gets to the top of the ladder and reaches up only to notice the briefcase looks like it has spiders all over it!
The lights go out.
The lights flicker as that weird creepy horror sound is happening and Stylez looks down and notices the ladder covered in spiders!
Stylez is confused and hops down thinking theres spiders all over him. The lights come back on and the music stops and theres no spiders, no spiders anywhere.
Billy: WHAT THE FUC-
Leviathan is in the corner of the ring bent-over-backwards spider-walking slowly towards Stylez and Stylez is looking around like WHAT THE FUCK as well. Stylez comes at Leviathan, but Leviathan breaks from his spiderwalk and ducks the clothesline and hits a BROSEIDON PUNCH on Stylez! Leviathan then grabs the mouth and jaw of Stylez and begins the mandible claw!
Chris Avery: HOLY SHIT! THAT CLAW IS DOING WONDERS FOR LEVIATHAN TONIGHT!
Stylez is out as Lissie Hope gets into the ring and clobbers Leviathan from behind and both fall down and fall out of the ring!
Stylez is out cold in the middle of the ring as the crowd starts to stand on their feet and buzz about someone walking down the ramp..
Billy: What the hell?! Thats Beau! What is Beau Blaze doing!?
He walks right down the ramp to the side of the ring and reaches in and grabs Stylez and pulls him to the apron.
Chris Avery: Wait! Whats he doing with Stylez?!
He puts Stylez over his shoulder and turns back up the ramp. Walking as relaxed, chill and as care-free as he can. He carries Stylez up the ramp and stops at the top of the stage. In his Sunday' best and his signature cowboy hat he looks over to the left and notices the drop off the stage..
Billy: WAIT A MINUTE..
Beau walks Stylez over to the side of the stage and sets him down. Beau takes the vile that he has from Zmac and puts some coke on his fingernail. Beau snorts that shit up and starts laughing. He picks up Stylez on his shoulders and fireman carries him to the side of the stage.
Billy: Don't do it, Beau! THATS A FIFTEEN FOOT DROP!
Beau smiles as he hits an AA off the top of the stage and flips Stylez down into some catering and production tables and Stylez crashes through them as stiff as he can!
Beau looks down at his masterpiece. He tips his cowboy hat and turns back and exits through the curtain.
Chris Avery: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ABOUT?!
Billy: NO IDEA!! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!
Chris Avery: FIRST TEO FALLS OFF NOT ONE BUT TWO LADDERS AND HE JUST GOT KNOCKED OUT BY A CHAIR! THEN CLAIRE HAWKINS JOINS CULTURE SHOCK AND JUST LEAVES THE MATCH AND NOW BEAU BLAZE JUST THREW STYLEZ OFF THE STAGE THROUGH THE TABLES!!
Billy: ACTION WRESTLING MAY NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN!
The crowd is cheering as Derrick Vayden is crawling on the outside and crawls over Allison's body.. he crawls up the steel steps and onto the apron. He rolls under the bottom rope.
Chris Avery: Oh my god...
Billy: Holy shit fire no..
Vayden crawls to the bottom of the ladder.
Chris Avery: HES GOING TO DO IT.
Billy: OH MY GOD, HE HAS A CLEAR PATH!
Chris Avery: NO ONE IS MOVING ON THE OUTSIDE!
Vayden climbs up to the second rung.
To the third rung.
To the fourth and fifth rung.
To the sixth and sevent rung.
He's at the top of the ladder.
Billy: DO IT YOUNG MAN!! YOU DESERVE IT!
Chris Avery: DERRICK VAYDEN IS GOING TO BE ALL-I..
Billy: OH MY GOD WHAT IS HE DOING HERE?!
Bobby Rage is in the ring and shakes the ladder and Vayden falls off of it as he was just starting to unlatch the briefcase and he falls onto the shoulders of Bobby Rage! Rage turns and RAGE SLAMS VAYDEN INTO THE CANVAS!
Billy: WHAT THE HELL!? WHY IS RAGE HERE?!
Rick Mad has a chair and slams it down across the back of Leviathan on the outside!
Lissie Hope gets up and also gets a chair shot to the back sending her back down to all fours! A second chair shot from the old ass hobo looking Rick Mad for good measure!
Rick picks up Allison and throws her into the ring.. Bobby grabs her and hits a German Suplex! He picks her back up and hits a second German Suplex! He picks her up and hits A RAGE SLAM!

Guillotine is rolled in by Rick Mad and Rage picks him up and hits a RAGE SLAM in the middle of the ring! Rage takes the ladder and throws it out of the ring for good measure!
Billy: WHY?!? WHY?!
The crowd starts cheering as Teo is using the railing to get to his feet..
Chris Avery: YOU HAVE GOT!! TO BE!! KIDDING ME!!
Teo looks abused and used but he isnt going down without a god damn fight. Teo stumbles into the apron as Bobby Rage starts to laugh. Teo pulls himself to the apron, coughing, selling his wounds.
Billy: TEO GET OUT OF THERE!
Teo enters the ring through the ropes but then stumbles back and leans on them. Rage is still laughing. Teo coughs again but stands back to his feet and looks at Rage. Teo puts up his fists.. Rage smiles and walks over to Teo..
TEO HITS A FLURRY OF OFFENSE! RIGHTS AND LEFTS! RAGE STUMBLES BACK! TEO HITS A BACK ELBOW! RAGE IS REELING! TEO RUNS INTO THE CORNER AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TURNBUCKLES BACKWARDS BUT..

Billy: JESUS CHRIST OK HES DEAD HES DEAD WE'RE DONE!
Rick Mad tells Rage to FINISH HIM, SON!
Rage picks up the basically dead and lifeless Teo and RAGE SLAMS him into the canvas!
THE CROWD POPS AGAIN as a dozen police officers and security run down the ramp but the real pop is for Camila and Torture running down the ramp and Rage and Rick Mad make like trees and leave. (lmao)
They jump the railing where they came from and high-tail it up the crowd posing and being all cool. The officers jump the railing and chase after them! Torture and Camila begin yelling at officials about protecting main events and roster members! Torture and Camila walk off camera somewhere talking to producers or agents.
Billy: WHAT THE HELL IS EVEN GOING ON STILL?!
Chris Avery: THIS IS THE CRAZIEST MAIN EVENT ALLIN MATCH EVER!
The crowd finally starts to die down as Leviathan is up and adjusting himself in the ring. He pulls himself to his feet and begins to climb the ladder now!
Slowly but surely he reaches the top..
Billy: Not a surprise! Leviathan is one of the...
The lights go out.
The lights come back on.

Billy: Both men want that briefcase!
Guillotine and Leviathan climb up the ladder and both reach up for the briefcase and both begin to punch. Both begin scratching at each other and trying to get an advantage!
That's when in the ring Lissie rolls in and grabs the ladder but Vayden turns her around and kicks her in the gut and hits a DDT!

Billy: EMOTIONS POURING OUT OF LISSIE HOPE!! MY GOD LISSIE HOPE JUST SHOT HER SELF TO THE MOON AND SHES A MAIN PLAYER IN ACTION WRESTLING NOW!
Chris Avery: THE ALL-IN BRIEFCASE IS ROYALTY!
Her music is blasting through the arena as the crowd is half cheering half booing. Lissie Hope throws her hair back, pure fucking emotion she screams as loud as possible and holds the briefcase high into the air.
Billy: ITS A NEW ERA IN ACTION WRESTLING!
Chris Avery: DANDY IS OUR WORLD CHAMPION... AND LISSIE HOPE JUST WON THE ALL-IN BRIEFCASE!
The arena comes to a still and for a few seconds, the silence is deafening. It’s broken by the crackly, distorted voice of Billie Eilish.
I’M THE BAAAAAAAD GUUUUY | DUH!
The beat drops and the strobe lights flicker in hues of red as Billie’s “bad guy” permeates the arena. Action Wrestling’s Miss All-In 2019, Lissie Hope, steps out from behind the curtain to a chorus of cheers. She's wearing a black workout shirt donned with the word "HERO" on it, and her wide smile is infectious. She performs a cute curtsy at the top of the ramp, before raising her arms up and flexing her guns, showing incredible muscle definition in her upper body.
Adeline Floyd: Making her way to the ring, from New Orleans, Louisiana! She stands five-feet, five-inches tall and weighs 135 pounds… MISS ALL-IN 2019... LISSIE… HOPE!
She claps her hands and begins jogging down the ramp, slapping a few outstretched hands before stopping at the ring apron. The song inches towards the chorus and Lissie raises her arms to the sky, blooming like a rose.
Chris Avery: Lissie Hope, getting one hell of a shot here tonight!
Billy: Id like to take my shot with her..
Lissie circles around the ring with a jog, stopping at the front row seats where her best friend, Estrella Luiz, is losing her fucking mind. She gives her a huge hug and then clenches a hand to pound a fist with her brother, Robbie Hope, who's sitting next to Estrella. But he shakes his head, grabs the back of her neck, and pulls her in for a long embrace. The smile on his face shows just how close the two have become over the year, and his pride is emanating from his eyes. He gives her a kiss on the forehead and wipes away the tears that have formed on the corners of her eyes. The camera catches him mouthing the words "you got this!" and he playfully jabs her on the arm.
Chris Avery: Lissie Hope looks absolutely driven to win the World Championship tonight! She's got her best friend and her brother in the front row tonight, cheering her on!
Billy: And listen to this crowd, Chris! They are, without question, behind her tonight!
Lissie slaps the mat and rolls into the ring, pulling herself up using the top rope. She pauses for a second to listen and take in all of the cheers from the adoring crowd. She hops into a corner and stands on the middle rope, raising her arms to the crowd. The music fades and she looks mentally checked in to the biggest match of her career.
The house lights black out, and "Left Behind" by Slipknot plays over the PA. Through the pitch blackness of the lightless arena, a strobe light starts flashing on the stage in concert with the kick drum, and Dandy DiVito appears on the stage with his World Title slung over his right shoulder and the International Title slung over his left. He jaws at the audience and points at his title as he makes his way to the ring.
Adilene Floyd: Making his way to the ring, from Jacksonville, Florida, weighing in at 215 pounds, he is the International Heavyweight Champion of the WORRRRRRRRRRRRLD, "THE ACTION WRESTLING ORIGINAL"... DANDY... DIVITO!
When Dandy reaches the ring stairs, he slams both hands in the top stair and then runs up them and into the ring. He climbs each corner to antagonize the crowd by showing off his titles as they boo him and the house lights come back up.
The crowd is as hot as fuck as Dandy and Lissie stare at each other in the middle of the ring and the ref holds the Heavyweight Championship above his head right behind them in frame. He rushes over and gives it to the time keeper and rings the bell!
DING DING DING
LISSIE AND DANDY WASTE NO TIME AND START THROWING RIGHT HANDS!
Billy: OHHHHH HERRE WE GO!!!
Chris Avery: THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE!! WHO MAKES THE FINAL FOUR?!
Lissie and Dandy continue throwing right hands until Dandy hits a low knee to the gut and shitcans Lissie through the middle ropes to the outside! Dandy exits the ring to the apron and jumps off but Lissie hits a punch to his gut and then gets back onto the attack with more rights and lefts reeling Dandy back to the railing! Lissie hits a few chops and tries to whip Dandy off the railing but Dandy holds his ground and whips Lissie back into the railing! Dandy takes a few steps to catch his breath and then rushes and charges at Lissie and she flips Dandy over the railing with a beautiful back body drop and Dandy goes flying into the chairs as the crowd moves just in time!
Billy: That looked like it hurt!
Lissie hops over the railing as the ref is trying to get them back into the ring and she slams a fist into the side of his head a few times before grabbing Dandy and whipping him back towards the railing, but Dandy reverses it and whips Lissie hard and she hits the railing and then flips over it herself!
Chris Avery: Oh shit!
Dandy climbs up on the guard rail and awaits Lissie to get up. She stumbles up holding her legs a bit and turns around and Dandy jumps off the railing and hits a flying clothesline knocking both superstars down!
Billy: Dandy putting in work of all sorts of styles tonight already!
Dandy gets up and grabs Lissie by the hair and whips her into the apron and hits a few chops of his own onto her chest! He pulls her hair back and talks trash into her face and she shoves him back and goes for a spinning heel kick but Dandy catches her and tbone suplexes her into the announcers table! Chris Avery: LOOK OUT!!
The table doesn't break but she rolls right into the laps and chairs of Billy and Chris and they get the hell out of dodge. Dandy moves Billys fatass out of the way and grabs Lissie and picks her up and slams her head down onto the railing a few times before Lissie blocks it and elbows Dandy in the gut and slams his head down onto the railing! Lissie back suplexes Dandy onto the announcers table!
Billy: This table just won't break!
Dandy and Lissie lay on the table for a few seconds before rolling off opposite sides and Lissie comes around the table to Dandy as the ref really wants them to get back into the ring. Lissie walks Dandy over to the side of the ring and grabs an arm. She goes for a suplex on the outside but Dandy blocks it! Dandy lifts Lissie up for a suplex but she knees him in the head while upside down putting her down except shes now standing on the apron! She kicks Dandy and he stumbles backwards and then Lissie jumps off with double knees to the chest of Dandy sending him down!
Chris Avery: These two still vying for control!
Lissie picks up Dandy and rolls him into the ring and she slides in and adjusts her hair and gear. The crowd behind her 100%! Dandy gets up and Lissie hits a clothesline! Dandy stumbles back up and Lissie hits a spinning kick knocking Dandy back down! Lissie taunts as Dandy gets up and she goes for her signature bicycle kick but Dandy catches it and then flips her backwards but Lissie completely back flips and lands on her feet but Dandy is there with a running lariat knocking her back down to the mat!
Billy: Dandy just took control right back!
Dandy drags her to the middle of the ring and pins her!
Dandy kneels over her and chokes her and slaps her and punishes her with some strikes before picking her up and whipping her into the corner where she stumbles out and Dandy knees her in the head turning her around and then Dandy hits a russian leg sweep! Dandy rolls backwards on impact and is already up on his feet where he hits a sit out leg drop across the throat of Lissie and goes for a pin!
Lissie kicks out!
Dandy kicks and stomps on her and drags her to the corner where he pulls her up to her feet and he's now sitting on the top rope. Dandy pulls her up by her head and goes for a suplex of some sort but he's facing the wrong way! Lissie breaks the hold and strikes Dandy a few times before landing one of the loudest slaps known to man right across the face of Dandy! Spit goes flying! The crowd pops! Lissie climbs up to the middle turnbuckle as well with Dandy and flips him off of there with a superplex!
Billy: SHITFIRE!! WHAT A SUPERPLEX!
Chris Avery: BOTH SUPERSTARS ARE DOWN!
Lissie stirs to her feet first and the crowd is now chanting for her once again!
Dandy gets up and Lissie hits a spinning kick knocking him down! He stumbles right back up and she hits a bicycle kick dead on and Dandy goes down one more time!
Lissie ducks Dandys wild clothesline and she climbs up the turnbuckles and jumps back from the middle one turning and catching Dandys head and hitting a tornado DDT out of the corner!
Billy: LISSIE IS FEELING IT NOW! SHES ON FIRE!
Dandy gets back up and stumbles around one more time and turns and Lissie hits a spear!
Dandy is down!
Lissie hooks the leg!
The crowd was behind that spear though and Lissie sits up.
The crowd goes from cheering to straight up booing.
Billy: Oh you gotta be kidding me!
Alex Richards is now walking down the ramp with the All-In briefcase in hand.
Chris Avery: Why is he coming down here?! Come on?!
Lissie is climbing up the top rope going for her signature five star frog splash when Dandy asks for the refs assistance and pulls the ref down!
Lissie is confused but Richards jumps up on the apron and smashes the All-In briefcase against the back of the head of Lissie!
She falls off the top rope and is now down on the canvas!
Billy: SHITFIRE!! COME ON!! THATS JUST CHEATING!!
Dandy is smiling!
The briefcase hit so hard it flew to the apron and Richards jumps down off the apron to go undetected!
Dandy crawls over to Lissie and pins her knocked out, lifeless body!
Chris Avery: NOT THIS WAY!!
The ref stops counting and is looking at the briefcase.
The ref looks at Richards who is now fucking FURIOUS.
Dandy is like COME ON COUNT THE THREE?!
The ref stands up and points at the briefcase!
Billy: HELL YEAH!! THE REF AINT STUPID!! HE PUT IT ALL TOGETHER!! RICHARDS SMASHED THAT BRIEFCASE INTO LISSIE!!
Dandy is begging the ref to get back to counting..
The ref looks out at the sold out crowd and points at Richards then the Briefcase.
Billy: HELLLL YEAH!! RICHARDS JUST GOT THROWN OUT!!
Richards turns and kicks the steel steps breaking them apart!
Dandy is is begging and pleading in the corner!
Richards doesn't want to leave! The ref says he has to go!
Richards leaves up the ramp and the crowd is chanting LIS! LIS! LIS! LIS! LIS! LIS! LIS! LIS!
Chris Avery: ITS SO LOUD IN HERE RIGHT NOW I CANT HEAR MYSELF!
Billy: THE REF JUST THREW RICHARDS OUT!!
Dandy grabs Lissie and ducks her attack and hits a german suplex in the middle of the ring!
Dandy climbs up to the top rope from the apron and holds his balance. Lissie is now still in the middle of the ring and Dandy jumps off... a picture perfect Five Star Frog Splash that he now just stole from Lissie!
He hits it!
Dandy crawls over and hooks her legs!
Billy: DANDY WITH HER OWN MOVE!!
Chris Avery: LISSIE GETS A SHOULDER UP!! SHE GETS A SHOULDER UP!!
Dandy is sweating bullets and running out of ideas fast and pulls her up by her hair and whips her into the corner where she stumbles out and he kicks her in the gut and turns for the STUNNER, but she shoves him away! He turns and she goes for another bicycle kick but he ducks under and goes for another stunner once she turns around but she shoves him forward into the turnbuckles where he hits chest first and turns around..
LISSIE HOPE KICKS DANDY IN THE GUT AND HITS DANDY WITH HIS OWN STUNNER!
Chris Avery: SHE JUST HIT CARNAGE!!
Dandy is out and convulsing almost. Lissie is dogshit tired and crawls over and puts an arm over Dandy!

Billy: Oh come on!!
Dandy rolls out of the ring and walks around the corner..
Chris Avery: Where is he going now?!
The ref is out and Lissie is still crawling around
Dandy gets to the timekeeper area and grabs his World Championship.
The crowd boos. Dandy turns and walks back towards the ring and slides inside.
Billy: Oh really?! Now Dandy is resorting to just flat out using the Championship as a god damn weapon!

The crowd cheering
Billy: DO IT!! COME ON LISSIE!! GIVE HIM A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE!

We finish up back in the small studio with Billy and Chris Avery.
Billy: And that was another fantastic edition of Legacy 10!
Chris Avery: We just had Evolution IV not too long ago too, and Bonnie Blue and Lissie had another instant classic! I bet we get another one of these top tens in no time at the rate she's rolling!
Billy: Lissie Hope is just beginning, folks! She’s only been a pro for two years and she already has these incredible matches and achievements on her resume! She just has to keep her head on straight, Chris.
Chris Avery: Lissie Hope, a generational talent with a devastating finishing move, the Crown of Thorns, which has never been kicked out of! She’s a finisher, Billy! And the sky’s the limit!
