Uprising Kickoff featuring Jade Riley, Denzel Porter and John Thomas!
We open up to SoFi Stadium where the fans are starting to come in for Uprising: All-In and we see Jade Riley sitting at a desk way up in the skyboxes.
Jade Riley: Welcome to Paramount+ and my god what a start to the Paramount+ era, right guys? Oh that's right, I'm flanked to my left and my right with two awesome analysts in professional wrestling! Please welcome the number one news reporter in pro wrestling, it's Denzel Porter!
Denzel Porter: Thank you, thank you, glad to be here at Uprising!
Jade Riley: And with us today is Fox Sports and AW analyst John Thomas, John, how are ya?
John Thomas: I'm doing great, Jade, I'm glad to be here as well, and of course I finally get to sit across from my peer, my friend, Denzel Porter!
Denzel Porter: He's only saying that to be nice, wait until all my predictions come true!
John Thomas: Ohh, sure! You know I'm callin' nothing but winners tonight!
Jade Riley: Tonights kick off show presented by BodyArmor SuperDrink and we'll only be discussing the Championship matches tonight, so lets get to it! We have a huge Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship match and it's elimination with tables! Two Gents defend against Gatecrashers, The Heritage and Dark Dynasty! John, lets kick it to you! Who do ya got?
John Thomas: This will be an epic match, but I'm calling Two Gents! It has to be! You can't deny the superstardom power of Teo Blaze! The dude has done it all, he's one of the best, and he along with Jenson continue their dominance in the Cruiser Tag division with a big tables win here tonight! I got Two Gents!
Denzel Porter: Well, it's no surprise my friend here chooses Teo, which is the safe bet. The vanilla bet. Of course, John chooses vanilla ice cream but I'm more of a rocky road fan, I like to mix it up! I'm going Dark Dynasty tonight! Hix and Cade are taking the fight to Heritage tonight! They're taking the fight to Two Gents and Gatecrashers! Tonight, the NEW Champions will be Dark Dynasty! I'm callin it!
Jade Riley: Wow, that match of course an elimination tables match, but also tonight the X Championship that sits around Roddys waist will defend against Karlie Nash! Who do you guys got?
Denzel Porter: There is no doubt about it, but Roddy walks out of Uprising with his X-Cham-
John Thomas: OHHHH COME ON DENZEL YOU KNOW BETTER!
Denzel Porter: Oh here we go..
John Thomas: Karlie Nash is one of the all time greats in Action Wrestling! She's an AW Original! She's competed for almost every Championship in AW! She's held the Mexican Tag Team Championships, she's held the WCF Tag Team Championships, she's held other Tag Team Championships, she's held gold on Clash and CruiserClash and tonight the rise of Karlie Nash is upon us! She walks out of Uprising with the X title!
Denzel Porter: You don't gotta get loud and proud over Karlie but what my friend failed to tell you was, those are Tag championships.. not singles titles and Karlie is on her own tonight!
John Thomas: You know she can do it AND SHE WILL! Karlie wins tonight, Jade, write that down!
Jade Riley: Things are heating up already!
John and Denzel are smiling at each other.
Jade Riley: Lets talk about the Cruiserweight Championship.. It's a ladder match! Regan Voorhees defends against Addy A and Terra Walker!
Denzel Porter: I'd let John go first but I have to say it outright, tonight is Addy's night. Plain and simple, thats it. Addy A's night is tonight.
John Thomas: We disagree on almost everything, Denzel but we agree on this. Addy A won the title already and Regan stole it back! But tonight? No Joey Bunga, no cheap shots, no escapes.. Regan has to climb that ladder to keep her belt and guess what? Addy isn't going to let her anywhere close to that ladder! Terra is nice and on her way up but tonight its Addys night!
Denzel nods as Jade Riley continues..
Jade Riley: Lets talk about the Hardcore Championship match where Johnny Bacchus defends against Max Daemon here tonight!
John Thomas: This match has been in the making for a while. This one and the US title match. Max Daemon won the Tokyo Cup for Clash and got to choose this match and rightfully so, he's getting a great, healthy Johnny Bacchus but thats just it; it's a healthy Johnny Bacchus and I don't know if I can bet against that. I want to! I think Max has what it takes to walk away with the Hardcore title but I just don't know..
Denzel Porter: I do know, I think tonight the fans win! We get to see an awesome Hardcore Championship match take place and I think both superstars are going to give it their all. I don't care who wins, I just know it'll be a knock-down-drag-out war and that's what that Hardcore belt is about!
John Thomas: I agree, I think this match could steal the show!
Jade Riley: Lets talk about the Television Championship match! Claire Hawkins; one of the all time greats with that TV title defends against newcomer Katherine Hastings! Who do you guys got with this tough match up?
John Thomas: I believe Hastings is beautiful, smart, witty and has a great personality and from what we've seen, we know she can fight.. however, Claire is one of the best like you said. Theres a reason she keeps that TV title wrapped up around her waist and tonight she'll prove it like she always does!
Denzel Porter: I agree with John! Theres no doubt about it, Hastings is good but Hawkins is GREAT. I think Hawkins has the best odds walking out of here with her Television Championship and I don't think its close!
Jade Riley: I also love this match up, and I just want to congratulate on Hawkins on being one of the best in that TV title division! Hats off to Hastings too, I bet she gives it socks! Lets switch gears and go about the Tag Team Championships.. It's Vanguard challenging for the second straight month against Sam Kidsgrove and Dandy DiVito' Fight Forever!
Denzel Porter: Dandy makes me laugh! Kidsgrove is a great action star, when you put enemies together it makes the best of teams, and I think it's too close to call BUT I will call it.. Fight Forever KEEPS the Tag Team Championships ton-
John Thomas: Don't mean to cut you off, Denzel, ya know I respect the hustle but listen! Enemies do make the best tag teams and Downfall and Dionysus were at each others' throats for so long! They even had a match where they weren't allowed to compete or touch each other for one year.. but now? They're the best of partners and I believe, Downfall and Dion reach the pinnacle, I think its the climax! I think Vanguard take home the Tag Team Championships tonight!
The crowd buzzes as Jade takes control.
Jade Riley: Wow, you guys do disagree a lot!
Denzel Porter: If someones at fault it's John Thomas, always.
John Thomas: Oh whatever, hahah!
Jade Riley: Lets talk about that United States Championship match! Graham Baker defends against Lissie Hope! This one has been over a year in the making!
John Thomas: Yeah, I love Baker, always have, it's hard not to, and that's why I go Graham Baker tonight. Listen, I'll say it until I'm blue in the face, Lissie Hope is a joke! She's a fraud! She's a sell out piece of garbage and she's scum.
Denzel Porter: Well, I-
John Thomas: No, there is nothing you can say that would ever change my mind! The things she's done the last few months, the things she says, it's disgusting! She makes me sick! Two people I despise in AW and it's Joey Freakin' Bunga and it's Lissie Stupid Hope! They're jokes! Hope isn't winning tonight because Baker will crush her face!
Denzel Porter: I have nothing but mad respect for Lissie Hope. She's appeared a few times on my rankings and lists, but I'm with you on this. Not in so many dirty words, but I believe Baker has what it takes to win. This is a dude who beat some booty in Murderhaus, was in various other companies beating people up and winning Championships, theres no doubt I put all my chips in the Baker basket. Baker defends and keeps his US title here tonight!
Jade Riley: I'm REALLY looking forward to that match tonight, and guys it's time we discuss the 7 way Championship match.. the World Title is on the line, Carter Shaw defends against QDT, Dune, Odin Balfore, Corey Black, Ash Blake and Spencer Adams!
Denzel Porter: I can't wait for this one! The 7 way match has been on my mind all night long and tonight, I think we see it.. Spencer Adams or Corey Black.. they END Philidor Holdings, they take the belt.. Spencer or Corey Black are World Champion tonight!
John Thomas: I love your pick, Denzel, I love it but it's not right! No, You're half right! Philidor Holdings DOES end tonight, it's over! The era of sell out billionaire chumps is over! Tonight it ends when Ash Blake and Carter Shaw are both pinned at the same time BY DUNE!
The crowd sort of cheers.
John Thomas: I'm tellin' you, there is no stopping the big man. Dune comes in, he wrecks house, he ends it all! Tonight, Dune wins the Championship and ends Philidor Holdings!
Jade Riley: Wow!! We're just about out of time, but I do want to remind folks we're on Paramount+ where you can get every PPV from Action Wrestling and remember tonights main event.. Carter Shaw doesn't need to be pinned or submitted to lose his Championship! Thats just how dangerous the 7 way match is!
John Thomas: It'll be crazy but I'm telling you, Dune is the new Champion!
Denzel Porter: Spencer Adams or Corey Black! Can't deny it!
Jade Riley: Thanks guys for debating the Championship matches here tonight for Uprising, I want to thank BodyArmor SuperDrink for giving us the Kick Off for Uprising!
Denzel Porter: Thanks for having me!
John Thomas: It was a blast to be here, always!
Jade Riley: We're out of time! That'll do it for the Kick off show, quick, ten seconds.. guys give me your All-In winners!
Denzel Porter: Jill Park!
John Thomas: CJ Phoenix!
Jade Riley: Uprising starts now on Paramount+! That's it for the kick off show!
We fade out.
