Ray Hudson
Welcome everyone to the 25th episode of our main show here in MHW!!!

Wavy Crockett
Imagine what number we would be on if Robert Mack never went bi-weekly.

Signs in the crowd are shown, such as: “Summit > Other Teams”, “AMMO Is Better”, “Shush My Tush”, “Say No To Drugs”, and “I Came Here To See Myself On TV”.

Ray Hudson
This would be the 35th episode.

Wavy Crockett
Well imagine if MHW never closed its doors last year…

Ray Hudson
So anyways we got another amazing night planned for you right here in San Antonio, Texas. I am Ray Hudson, joined by the ridiculous Wavy Crockett.

Wavy Crockett
That has a good ring to it. And you can be Mr. Never Been With A Woman Ray Hudson.

“Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison begins playing throughout the arena.

Ray Hudson
Well here comes the bossman. I think he is about to finally confront Skrabz about his “conspiracy theories”.

Wavy Crockett
Does the Daddy Mack universe exist in the ThrowDown universe? Cause if so, he can also confront Skrabz about Jen Vallejos.

Ray Hudson
You are one messy person, Wavy.

Robert Mack comes from behind the curtains and heads down to the ring to mixed reactions.

Wavy Crockett
I’m just saying.

Ray Hudson
Jen has a crush on Skrabz. As far as we know, nothing has ever happened with that.

Wavy Crockett
I slept with Jen. Who hasn’t slept with Jen?

Ray Hudson
Wow….

Robert Mack is handed a mic from ringside as his new music fades away.

Robert Mack
So this is the very first time MHW has ever been to San Antonio, Texas.

The fans are chanting “M-H-W!”

Robert Mack
The first time EVER in Texas….

Robert points around the arena with a big smile, as the fans are going nuts.

Robert Mack
And they say everything is bigger in Texas. So tonight’s show will more than likely be our biggest…

Robert thinks for a minute.

Robert Mack
Though, to be perfectly honest with you, fine folks….. all my exes live in.. Louisiana.

The fans start booing.

Robert Mack
Hey! Hey! Hold up… that’s because if I ever got with one of you Texas women, it’d be on that forever tip, ya dig?

Robert winks, but there’s only mixed reactions at this point.

Robert Mack
Anyways…. I’m out here in this ring for one reason and one reason only. And that’s because Skrabz wants me to be out here.

The fans cheer, and then a “Skrabz!” chant breaks out.

Robert Mack
Yeah… yeah… your MHW Ultimate Champion….. Mr. Unbeatable…. Unstoppable…. yeah that guy wants me out here.

Robert points down to the ring underneath his feet.

Robert Mack
Because Mr. Stanzas has been getting on his little phone and recording videos claiming I, Robert Mack, might have a conspiracy brewing against him. Maybe just maybe I, Robert Mack, am trying to get the belt off of Skrabz.

Robert chuckles, shaking his head.

Robert Mack
But let’s face reality…. if I, Robert Mack, wanted the belt off of Skrabz? I’da called him to the ring a long time ago…. and yanked it right off his shoulder…

Mixed reactions from the crowd, but it’s getting real loud.

Robert Mack
But why call out Skrabz tonight, when I could’ve called so many others out on other nights? I mean, because let’s face it….he’s not the first person back there to accuse me of some kind of conspiracy. I don’t know, maybe it’s my karma for how I treated Lance Mikes back in HcW…

Robert smirks, before getting serious.

Robert Mack
But here’s my thing…. those other people have every right to find a reason why they aren’t at the top. Those other complainers have a REASON to accuse me of this and that, because they want to blame someone else for their misfortunes. Anyone but themselves. Those other people are far too arrogant to ever just look in the mirror and say, “You need to step your game up!”

The camera shows a few different fans looking shocked and excited at Robert Mack’s comments.

Robert Mack
Let them believe there’s a conspiracy against them, if it helps them sleep better at night. But you, Skrabal?

Robert raises an eyebrow, almost in disgust.

Robert Mack
Dude, you’re at the top. You got the gold. You got the greatest win/loss record on the roster. You are the man. You are the king. You are the GOAT!

The fans start chanting, “Skrabz is GOAT!” Robert Mack smirks, nodding his head, and then shrugs before raising an eyebrow.

Robert Mack
But there’s a conspiracy against YOU?!

Robert looks deep into the camera.

Robert Mack
Mannnn come on. You’re trippin. And if you dont come up out of that Rocky Mountain high, Tyke gon catch you slippin. And our Ultimate Champ is gonna be someone different.

Robert throws up the westside sign with his left hand, trying to look hard.

Robert Mack
See, I can rap too, Mr. Loaded Baked Potato.

More mixed reactions from the crowd, as Robert laughs at himself.

Robert Mack
I mean… to be fair, I guess I’d rather be accused that I don’t like you, by you, over that gay shit people like Solomon Cain have said about my feelings towards you.

Robert nods and sees the positive in these recent accusations from Skrabz. Then he looks into the camera again, as it zooms in closer.

Robert Mack
Waddup Solomon. Hope you’re getting better, pal…

Robert throws up the deuces, with a slight smirk. Then the camera zooms back out, as Robert turns to the stage area.

Robert Mack
So Sir Skrabal Stanzas the fourth…… come on dowwwwwnnnn! And please tell me that you realize how foolish you’ve been sounding lately…

The fans are heard buzzing for a few seconds before “Next Hype” by Tempa T begins playing through the speakers.

Wavy Crockett
Here he comes, Ray!

Ray Hudson
And after those words, Skrabz might end up getting physical.

Wavy Crockett
He wouldn’t wanna…

Skrabz steps out from behind the curtains, still wearing both belts over each shoulder.

Ray Hudson
This is what Skrabz wanted though.

Wavy Crockett
Why the hell is he still carrying that Phoenix Title around?

Skrabz gets midway down the ramp, and all of a sudden the fans get loud with mixed reactions as Tyke Index comes sprinting behind Skrabz and elbow smashing him in the back of the head. The music stops.

Ray Hudson
What the hell?!!

Skrabz went rolling down the rest of the ramp, both belts flopping to the side. Tyke starts stomping away at Skrabz, before viciously yanking him to his feet.

Wavy Crockett
Man, Tyke ain’t playing this go around!

Tyke Index Irish whips Skrabz into the steel steps, as Robert Mack starts yelling at Tyke from inside the ring.

Ray Hudson
Send some security out here. If Tyke wants to kick Skrabz’ ass, he has a Goddamn match with him at Black Magic. And he has a damn hour to do it!

Tyke flips Robert Mack off and points down at Skrabz, yelling, “Look at your precious champ now, Robbie! Not for long!!”

Wavy Crockett
You crazy, Ray. Let these boys fight…

Tyke starts stomping away at Skrabz again before yanking him to his feet again.

Ray Hudson
And potentially ruin our main event for Black Magic??

Skrabz starts fighting back, throwing mad rights and lefts before Irish whipping Tyke, who reverses the Irish whip sending Skrabz colliding with the ring post!!

Wavy Crockett
Oh shit!!

Robert Mack slides out of the ring and pulls Tyke by the shirt, spinning him around. Robert starts yelling at Tyke.

Ray Hudson
Robert Mack is finally putting a stop to this.

The cameras reveal, Skrabz is busted open.

Wavy Crockett
Once he saw his “precious champ” bleeding..

Tyke looks like hes about to swing on Robert Mack, but then notices Skrabz starting to get up and shakes his head.

Ray Hudson
Dont do it, Tyke…

Tyke Index takes Skrabz to Coke Mountain too!!!

Wavy Crockett
Robert Mack better get out of here while he has the chance. Tyke is fighting like he just had a line of that booger sugar before he got out here.

Tyke grabs both the Ultimate and Phoenix Championship belts, as the fans boo loudly. He holds them both high in the air, without a care.

Ray Hudson
Well, the King of Coke Mountain has made a statement..

Tyke throws the Ultimate Title belt at Skrabz’ motionless body, but holds onto the Phoenix Title belt, looking at it very hard before walking up the ramp with it.

Wavy Crockett
Hold up… where that man going with that belt? Haha.

Tyke stands on top of the stage and holds the Phoenix Title belt in the air with one hand, as he yells, “This is MINE! The search is over! And the Ultimate Championship is mine next!!”

Ray Hudson
I think he is stealing the belt, Wavy. Skrabz is going to kill him…

Wavy Crockett
Let me find out Tyke Index is a gangsta.

Ray Hudson
Well….I’m not sure if Tyke knows he’s stealing it. He might think it’s still his…


Ripley is walking down one of the hallways in his ring gear, with the MHW AMMO Television Championship around his waist, when Jordan Hagan approaches him.

Jordan Hagan
Excuse me, Ripley. Tonight is a big night for you as you take on “The War Queen” Leah in a First Round Match in The Rise of the Phoenix Tournament, and I’m just wondering like I’m sure many are; do you expect Ginger Knox to get involved on your behalf again?

Ripley stares at Jordan for a few seconds.

Ripley
I have no idea what she’s going to do and frankly I’m sick of everyone thinking I have something to do with her getting involved. I’ve told her over and over again to stay out of my business but she hasn’t listened. I get she’s a fan of mine but her obsession is getting out of hand.

Jordan Hagan
Are you confident you can beat Leah if Ginger doesn’t get involved?

Ripley
You know how when you were a kid and teachers said there’s no such thing as a dumb question?

Jordan Hagan
Um, I guess so…

Ripley
Well they lied because that was a really dumb question. I don’t need anyone to help me tonight, or any night. I’m going to go to the ring alone like always and I will beat Leah.

Jordan Hagan
Do you expect any Coven members to get involved?

Ripley
I really don’t know, but it wouldn’t surprise me. Now if you’ll excuse me I have a match to prepare for.

Jordan looks like he’s going to say something else but Ripley walks away before he can.

Whispers fill the arena before the guitar rifts of “Bodies” by Drowning Pool blasts through the arena when Alastair Frost comes out slowly and methodically as he puts on a pair of sunglassess. He snickers at the jeers that are given to him.

Meozha Zhanae
The following match is for one fall!!! Making his way to the ring first… weighing in at 195 pounds….. from Washington D.C…….. Alastair Frost!!!

Alastair slips under the bottom rope and remains in the middle of the ring while waiting for his opponent as he gives the fans booing the middle finger.

Ray Hudson
Well this is going to be Alastair Frost’s second match here in MHW. And his third is already booked for next week’s AMMO, where he will be facing “The Cold Hearted” Chris Mosh.

Wavy Crockett
Tonight he faces The Real Deal though. A man who has been known to cancel out newcomers. Will Alastair Frost follow in the footsteps of Rayne Young and 3P?

“Cult of Personality” by Living Colour begins to play over the sound system. “The Real Deal” Dillon Daniels steps from behind the curtain, looking focused.

Meozha Zhanae
And his opponent… weighing in at 218 pounds….. from Chicago, Illinois……. “The Real Deal” Dillon Daniels!!!

Dillon Daniels walks down the ramp, and slides into the ring. He bounces around, staying focused.

Match Official: Jack Glascock

“The Real Deal” Dillon Daniels
vs
Alastair Frost

As soon as the bell rings, Frost runs at Dillon with a knee strike. As soon as Dillon gets back to his feet, Frost takes him right back down with a roundhouse kick.

Dillon wobbles to his feet and Froat gives him a Loyalty Challenge!!

Frost hooks Dillon into the Hell Hound!!!

The ref checks on Dillon, and he is tapping out!!!!!

WINNER:
Alastair Frost

Match Length: 00:25
Ray Hudson
Well that was quick…

“Bodies” by Drowning Pool plays throughout the arena.

Meozha Zhanae
And the winner of this match… Alastair Frost!!!

Alastair Frost celebrates as he heads backwards up the ramp.

Wavy Crockett
Dillon Daniels is going to have to reevaluate himself.

“The Adorkable Angel” Azurine Vebbins is seen making her way through the backstage area. Just then “Pretty” Ricky Stanton turns the corner and the two almost bump into each other. Stanton looks her up and down.

“Pretty” Ricky Stanton
Oh, I’m so sorry, Ms. Vebbins. I was looking at my phone and got lost in my Twitter Timeline. How are you doing today? You know what? Hold that thought and just come with me.

Stanton takes her by the hand and walks with her into the Green Room, where cameras show a huge bowl of M&Ms.

Wavy Crockett
This dude can’t be serious…

“Pretty” Ricky Stanton
While I know you were having a little fun at my expense a few Tweets ago, and that you were the only one to wish me a Happy Bosses Day, well, I wanted to get you to do something special for me. I want you.. to go through that gigantic bowl over there, and pick out all the Red M&Ms. I’m sure you know how much I hate them to my soul, don’t you? Good.

Stanton pats Azurine on the back and slips a check into her front dress pocket.

“Pretty” Ricky Stanton
Good luck!

Stanton walks off as Azurine watches him with a smirk.

“The Adorkable Angel” Azurine Vebbins
How am I doin’ today, Mister Stanton, sir? Delightful. Alright, Azzy, just need to separate dose delicious Red M&Ms from da amalgamated assortment. He never said I was limited to one color of da rainbow. Should scoop out some green, blue, orange, and brown, too.

“The Hardheaded Housewife” Azurine Vebbins finds a second bowl stashed under the table. She proceeds to pour most of the M&Ms leaving only the yellow ones. Vebbins then pulls out the check she received from Ricky. She reads the memorandum line and the amount provided.

“The Adorkable Angel” Azurine Vebbins
I’m not scared. Shush Your Tush and put dose non-red M&Ms back in da bowl. Gratis. Did he just give me a check wid-out charge? He’s expectin’ me to do dis for free? Respect him, he’s my boss, but dat’s pretty sashay-level petty.

Wavy Crockett
Get him, Azzy!

Ray Hudson
She shouldn’t have to stoop to his level…

The cameras switch over to interviewer, Jessica McDaniels standing by with a microphone in hand and a smile on her face.

Jessica McDaniel
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, Becca “Bruiser” Maguire.

The camera pans out to reveal Becca “Bruiser” Maguire standing beside Jessica, dressed ready for her huge match.

Jessica McDaniel
Becca, tonight you’re going into a huge Hardcore Match against the undefeated Reaper. I presume you heard what his manager, Aloysius Marcus Vance IV, had to say to you?

Bruiser smirks and nods.

Becca “Bruiser” Maguire
Aye, lass… I did… but quite frankly, I couldn’t give a shit about what that fuckin’ gobshite had to say. As I said before… he ain’t my focus… Reaper is.

Jessica McDaniel
Many people are questioning how you’re going to survive tonight. Being up against Reaper is bad enough, but in a match where weapons are allowed? Are you prepared for tonight?

The Shieldmaiden nods once again.

Becca “Bruiser” Maguire
O’ course I am. Aye, Reaper may be undefeated here in Mile High… and aye, he’s obliterated every single fuckin’ person who has ever stepped into the rin’ with him. But so have I! And at the last ThrowDown, we saw that nothin’ lasts forever when I lost my first singles match since I debuted here. Reaper may be undefeated… but that ain’t gonna last forever… and I plan to end that undefeated streak tonight! Because aye, he can use weapons… and he’s dangerous enough without ‘em, I’ll fully admit to that. But ya’ll saw first hand at the last ThrowDown what I am capable o’ doin’ with a weapon in my hand too!

Jessica McDaniel
Obviously, you’re referring to when you assaulted Leah after your match with her, so speaking of the Coven… after what you and your fellow Maidens did to them at the last edition of ThrowDown and after what they did at this past Ammo, what are your thoughts?

Becca “Bruiser” Maguire
My fellow sister and I will fuckin’ deal with them in due time, lass… right now I’m focused on one thin’ and one thin’ only… and that’s Reaper! Cheers for the interview… and have a good night…

And with that, Bruiser pulls her face mask up over her nose and mouth and pats the interviewer on the shoulder before disappearing off camera.

Jessica McDaniel
Well there you have it folks, a focused and determined Bruiser who seems more than ready for her huge Hardcore match against Reaper.

Wavy Crockett
A stupid and foolish Bruiser, you mean…

Ray Hudson
I”m predicting a huge upset tonight. Bruiser for the win!


Backstage at the arena proper, the esteemed Purveyor of Justice and Defender of Truth, Aloysius Marcus Vance IV, the manager for Reaper and the Summit, makes his way down the hall. Well-dressed as always in a slick three-piece pinstriped number, the big city, fourth-generation lawyer moves along with a poise that you simply cannot practice; you’re either born with it or you ain’t. As he moves, he stops to talk to various people along the way, be they wrestlers or just MHW employees… and even a few fans looking for a way back to their seats. And each time, he takes a small set of pictures out of his pocket and shows it to the person in question.

Ray Hudson
What is AMV up to?

Wavy Crockett
I don’t know, but he’s dripping in swag while doing it.

Each and every time, there’s a shake of the head or other answer to the negative and, well, it takes some of the luster off Vance’s smile each time. He still puts it back on for the next person, but the frustration of whatever he’s up to not bearing fruit is getting to him. Unsurprisingly, by the time he gets questioned by a roving interviewer behind a camera, the attorney is noticeably agitated.

Cameraman
Um, Mr. Vance… what exactly are you doing back here? Shouldn’t you be with Reaper or Tyke getting them ready for their matches?

Rolling his eyes, AMV takes off his $400 Ray-Bans and puts them in his jacket pocket, lifting a manicured brow in the camera’s direction.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
So now a camera jockey knows more about managing greatness than a man who was born and bred for it? Really, kid? You’re lucky I’m sparing time to jaw with you at all right now!

Brushing a piece of dust off the shoulder of his suit, AMV stares away from the camera as he continues, not giving time for a verbal retort.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
And if you must know, I’m handling a little non-wrestling business for my client, Reaper. Tyke does not need my input to get the job done in the ring, nor does Reaper. I merely acquire opportunities and they make the most of them. No more, no less.

Cameraman
Non-wrestling business?

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
Nothing gets by you, kid.

Smirking now, Vance turns back to the camera.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
But since you’re here, have a look at this. Seen or heard of any of these people?

The camera lowers a bit as if to show the pictures, but Vance quickly points it back at him with a snarl.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
If I wanted the world to see these I’d have held them up you wetwipe! Just look with your eyes, not the lens, and answer the question!

Cameraman
Er, sorry! Um… n-no, can’t say I have.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
Figures!

Taking them back, AMV stuffs the photos into his pocket and rubs his temples.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
Would it KILL them to have some decent coffee in these places?! I mean, I’m not asking for goddamn Kopi Luwak or anything, but the swill in these hoddles is just… ugh! I could find fresher crap in a Starbucks dumpster!

Clearly agitated again, AMV is about to turn and leave when the massive form of Reaper comes into view. The cameraman, on instinct, backs up a few steps. The masked man stares at the camera for a moment, then turns to AMV with a questioning gesture, to which the lawyer responds negatively and placatingly.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
I’m… sorry. Nothing yet. No leads. I’m asking everyone I see, but-

Reaper’s hands clench tightly into fists, the ungloved mitts showing knuckles, tattooed and scarred, going white from the pressure of the big man’s grip. They go well with the orange-sized lump that Vance has to swallow before his voice comes back. The impatience of his client is not something he cares to deal with if at all possible.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
I haven’t forgotten, I swear! Just give me a little more time, okay?!

Turning on his heel after a snort of irritation through the mask, Reaper storms off and leaves AMV catching his breath after seeing his life briefly flash before his eyes. The camera is still there, but not for long.

Aloysius Marcus Vance IV
And you! Shoo! Go check the electric fence or something! I swear… no class at all! I need some damn COFFEE!

And AMV charges off after his client, or perhaps to question more passerby, as the cameras cut away.

Wavy Crockett
So what you think going on, Ray?

Ray Hudson
Maybe someone’s playing a prank on Ms. Vebbins.

Wavy Crockett
They have a lot of weird shit going on here in MHW. We had those Coven videos, which led to that epic moment. We’ve been seeing these creepy ass videos during Shieldmaiden matches.

Ray Hudson
We’re supposed to find out who’s behind that, later tonight.

Wavy Crockett
And now we got this creepy ass little doll following Azurine Vebbins around like we on some Annabelle shit.

Ray Hudson
Maybe its “Evil” Emily Falls.

Wavy Crockett
Or Samson.

Ray Hudson
Gabriel Ohio?

Wavy Crockett
Maybe even someone new altogether?

The lights in the arena go out and the sound effect of thunder echoes throughout the arena as the entrance way and ring are illuminated in a neon blue light.

Ray Hudson
Well it’s time for our third Round One Match in this Rise of the Phoenix Tournament.

The lights then flash wildly like lightning. “Redneck Stomp” by Obituary then hits. Ripley walks out onto the stage wearing a black hoodie with the hood up, black wrestling tights, black boots, and his MHW AMMO Television Championship. He stands at the top of the entrance way and looks around the arena as the crowd erupts in cheers, with some scattered boos.

Meozha Zhanae
The following match is for one fall, and is a Round One Match in The Rise of the Phoenix Tournament!!! Making his way to the ring first… weighing in at 240 pounds….. from Brooksville, Florida……. Ripley!!!

Ripley starts walking towards the ring. As he makes his way down the aisle to the ring he looks at the fans. Once he reaches the ring he stops and looks at it then quickly walks up the steel steps and enters the ring.

Wavy Crockett
Ripley says he has a beef with the Coven.

Ray Hudson
And rightfully so.

Wavy Crockett
He don’t want no beef with the Coven. He better relax.

In the ring, Ripley paces around then climbs up in one of the corners of the ring to look out at all of the fans. He points to a few fans as the crowd continues to cheer. He then hops down unzipping his hoodie and tosses it to ringside and walks to the center of the ring as his music fades out and the lights return to normal.

Ray Hudson
He has held that AMMO Television Title with pride. Definately been a great champion so far.

“Green Light Go” by Becky G fires over the PA System as “The War Queen” Leah makes her way out through the entrance taking in the crowd’s boos. Stoically standing at the top of the stage, Leah raises her War Queen W high in the air drawing in more heat.

Wavy Crockett
And here comes one of those Coven folk.

Ray Hudson
And we can confirm that she will join Emily Falls and Double Team Ihari in that Caged Turmoil Match st Black Magic. Just one more participant for the Coven side left to be announced.

Leah slowly walks down the aisle as fans let her know how disappointed they are in her.

Meozha Zhanae
And his opponent… weighing in at 132 pounds….. from Chicago, Illinois……. “The War Queen” Leah!!!

Without acknowledging the crowd, Leah rolls in under the bottom rope and walks over to her corner. Leah props herself up the turnbuckles, sitting down on the top. The War Queen lets the War Queen W fly once more as the music cuts out.

Match Official: John Paul Vigil

The Rise of the Phoenix Tournament
Round One Match

Ripley
vs
“The War Queen” Leah

Both superstars step up to the middle and Leah hits Ripley with a roundhouse kick. Leah quickly runs to the ropes and hits a springboard moonsault.

Leah hooks the leg.

One

TwoKickout!

Leah pops Ripley in the back of the head and gets to her feet. Ripley shakes it off and gives Leah a dirty look before getting to his feet.

Leah dropkicks Ripley, causing him to stumble backwards into the corner. She approaches him as he stumbles back towards her and she takes him down with a snap suplex.

Leah hooks the leg again.

One

TwoKickout!

Leah smirks and looks to the top rope, as the fans start making noise. Leah gets to her feet and heads for the corner, climbing to that tope rope.

Ripley is back to his feet and climbs to the second rope. Leah throws a right, but Ripley blocks it and hits her with a European uppercut.

Ripley hits Leah with a second European uppercut, and then Leah hits him with a headbutt, as he goes tumbling down to the ring mat.

Leah stands up and goes for Leah Rising!!

But Ripley brings his knees up. Then Ripley slowly gets to his feet and climbs to the top rope, himself.

Ripley jumps down onto Leah with a picture perfect elbow drop, and then hooks the leg.

One

Two

Kickout!

Ripley gets to his feet and starts going for his Sharpshooter, but Leah starts kicking at him to avoid the submission.

Ripley kept up with Leah as the match continued, something only AMMO fans have been used to lately. A few more near falls later and all of a sudden you could hear the fans booing.

The camera reveals Ginger Knox running down to ringside. Ripley was just about to go for his Mark of Failure when he notices the annoying red head.

Ripley starts yelling at Ginger Knox as she climbs up on the apron. He keeps yelling for her to leave and she grabs him by the head, pulling him in for a passionate kiss!!!

Ripley pushes himself away and must feel Leah coming up behind him, as he moves out of the way and Leah’s big boot comes crashing through the ropes into Ginger Knox, sending her flying down to the concrete floor.

Leah gets her leg back into the ring through the ropes, and turns around into a Mark of Failure!!!

But Leah rolls out of the way before she was hit, as Ripley’s leg goes over the top rope. Leah comes up behind and rolls him up tight.

One

Two

Three!!!

WINNER:
“The War Queen” Leah

Match Length: 12:01
Ray Hudson
And The War Queen advances!

“Green Light Go” by Becky G plays throughout the arena.

Meozha Zhanae
And the winner of the match, advancing to Round Two of The Rise of the Phoenix Tournament… “The War Queen” Leah!!!

Leah celebrates for only a moment before the music fades as the cameras reveal Double Team Ihari on the outside stomping away at Ginger Knox.

Wavy Crockett
Well damn.

Ray Hudson
What the hell is this?!

“Evil” Emily Falls slides into the ring with a baseball bat, as the fans boo loudly. She looks at Leah, who smiles and nods her head.

Wavy Crockett
Rob must ain’t did a good job raising his kids.

Ripley is on one knee looking at Emily with disgust. Emily swings the bat into Ripley’s face, with all her power, knocking the MHW AMMO Television Champion clean out!!!

Ray Hudson
My God!!!

Wavy Crockett
Maybe baseball was supposed to be her career path.

Ray Hudson
This Coven gang is a bunch of bullies! And by God they’re going to pay. Mark my words.

Wavy Crockett
You gonna do something about it, Ray?

Double Team Ihari slide into the ring and stand with Leah and Emily as “Made With Hate” by Prophets of Rage plays throughout the arena.



Whether it was something spooky with the satellite signal, Halloween being right around a creepy corner, or this particular episode of MHW Throwdown appearing extra eerie, Azurine Vebbins enters her drab dressing room transmitting trepidation. Could navigate a Nissan Leaf cross-county with how much excess electricity crackles off our concerned combatant. Cameras focus on a tattered, black dress draped over its woeful wire hanger. It looks to be the solitary article of clothing adorning “The Hardheaded Housewife’s” closet. Attached to the ghastly garment is a note reading “I’d Love To See You In This, Doll.” Azurine, bemused beyond belief, pulls the dress off its hanger and heads to a nearby shower for serenity. However, prior to leaving the room she makes a few terse remarks.

“The Adorkable Angel” Azurine Vebbins
Notioned Nidia’s favorite color was lavender. She always comments how sexy I am in every shade of purple. Why she’d pick out dis fearsome fabric? Maybe I’m not viewin’ it in da right light. Should head into da adjacent area and slip it on for size. Give it a spin. Still have plenty of time before I salsa wid Skrabal…plus, bein’ an honest housewife I should respect whatever wardrobe choices my supportive spouse picks out for me…

As soon as Vebbins disappears into the en suite bathroom of her dressing room, the lights begin to flicker. After a few moments, they return back to normal. However, standing nearby where the dress was hanging is the same creepy looking doll that graced “The Adorkable Angel” with her presence on the last episode of ThrowDown.

The lights dim as the opening to “Indestructible” by Disturbed begins to play through the PA system, a thin layer of fog begins to cover the entrance stage and ramp when a dark blue spotlight shines down on a kneeling hooded figure looking down to the floor. As the song kicks into full swing, the figure slowly rises to her feet and even though the bottom half of her face is covered with a face mask, we can see that it’s Becca “Bruiser” Maguire who makes an “M” shape with her hands to signify the Shieldmaidens.

Meozha Zhanae
The following Hardcore Match is for one fall!!! Making her way to the ring first… weighing in at 150 pounds….. from New Orleans, Louisiana……. representing the Shieldmaidens… Becca “Bruiser” Maguire!!!

Maguire begins to slowly and methodically make her way down the ramp, focusing on nothing but the ring in front of her. Once she reaches the bottom of the ramp, she slides into the ring and while staying on her hands and knees, she scoots over to the center before making the “M” shape with her hands again and then slowly stands to her feet while pulling back her hood and removing the face mask, revealing a snarl across her face as “Indestructible” fades out.

Ray Hudson
You gotta give it to Bruiser. She is fearless. Always ready to go to war.

Wavy Crockett
She’s stupid if you ask me. It’s okay to not be scared of anyone. But it’s ‘smart’ to avoid getting murdered.

Ray Hudson
Until she beats Reaper, and then what will you have to say?

Wavy Crockett
She won’t though.

The foreboding guitars and drums of Kamelot’s “Necropolis” starts up as the arena goes dark. A spotlight shines down upon and follows the motion of the masked Reaper as he seemingly ‘appears’ within the fog billowing out of the stage.

Ray Hudson
Well here comes your guy right here.

Wavy Crockett
So what don’t you like about him then?

Ray Hudson
Never said I didn’t like him. His lawyer can be annoying sometimes. But Reaper definitely has a bright future here in MHW.

Following closely behind Reaper is his lawyer and manager, Aloysius Marcus Vance IV, boosting the big man as they approach the ring.

Meozha Zhanae
And her opponent… weighing in at 272 pounds….. from Hell……. accompanied to ring by Aloysius Marcus Vance IV… he is Reaper!!!

There’s little pomp and circumstance where Reaper is concerned; he ignores the fans and their reactions, pays no attention to anyone else in the ring… he doesn’t even look around.

Wavy Crockett
I just dont think anyone can stop this man. Look at him!

Reaper pulls himself to the apron, steps over the ropes and goes to face the camera, glowering behind his imposing metal mask. After a few moments, he moves into one of the neutral corners of the ring, doffing his long jacket and standing with his hands upon the ropes, head lowered, waiting for the battle to commence as Aloysius moves to the outside, continuing to talk him up.

Ray Hudson
It’s about to get brutal…

Match Official: Jack Glascock

Hardcore Match
Reaper
vs
Becca “Bruiser” Maguire

As soon as the bell rings, Bruiser charges Reaper, spearing him to the mat. She immediately starts laying elbow strikes into the top of his head.

Reaper throws Bruiser off of him and gets to his feet. Bruiser hits him with a European uppercut, followed by a big boot. Both strikes only make him take steps backwards.

Bruiser goes for a suplex, but can’t get Reaper off the ground. Reaper pulls her up and hits her with a brainbuster.

Reaper gets to his feet and easily pulls Bruiser up with him lifting her up over his head and dropping her with military press drop.

Reaper puts his boot down over the back of Bruiser’s head as the fans have mixed reactions for the mysterious monster of a man.

Bruiser fights out from under Reaper’s boot, able to roll out of the ring. She wastes no time digging under the ring, as Reaper slowly makes his way over the top rope to the outside.

Bruiser pulls out a sledgehammer and Reaper charges her with a leaping shoulderblock, causing her to drop the sledgehammer. Reaper looks down at the sledgehammer as the fans start getting louder.

Reaper walks past the sledgehammer though and pulls Bruiser to her feet. Bruiser quickly starts unloading with knife-edge chops.

Reaper reaches for Bruiser’s neck and lifts her in the air, chokeslamming her onto the ring apron, making a cracking noise, followed by the sound of the fans going “ooooo”.

Bruiser holds her back in pain while Reaper pulls her up off the concrete floor again and rolls her into the ring, causing some boos.

Reaper begins climbing up the apron and Bruiser comes out of nowhere with her Freedom Punch, knocking him back down on his feet to the concrete floor!!!

Reaper rests his head on the barricade for a moment. Bruiser is on the ring apron and jumps with all her might coming down onto Reapers head with her Kickstarter, sandwiching Reaper between her boot and the barricade, as she falls to her ass on the concrete floor!!!

Reaper has collapsed to the floor and the fans are chanting “Holy Shit!”

Bruiser continued to fight her heart out, and Reaper kept proving to be arguably the strongest man in MHW. Bruiser would even get a hold of the sledgehammer and slam it sideways into Reaper’s face/mask.

Maybe the mask protected Reaper’s face well enough, as even the sledgehammer wasn’t enough to keep Reaper out of the fight.

Finally, while getting to his feet on the outside, Bruiser came flying from the top rope at him, only to get caught in a choke hold. Reaper would lift Bruiser off her feet by the neck, turn around, and set her on her feet before giving her a nasty Throwing Spinebuster through the announcer’s table!!!

Reaper covered her for the win.

One

Two

ThrKickput!!!

The fans went nuts!!!

The camera showed AMV4 shaking his head in disappointment at Bruiser’s desire to not give up.

Reaper grabbed Bruiser by the head and gave her a 1,000 Screams!!!

Once Bruiser faded to black, the ref called for the bell.

WINNER:
Reaper

Match Length: 12:32
Ray Hudson
And Reaper continues his winning streak…

Kamelot’s “Necropolis” starts playing throughout the arena.

Meozha Zhanae
And the winner of this match… Reaper!!!

AMV4 celebrates in the ring with his winning client.

Wavy Crockett
Who is going to be able to stop this man?

Ray Hudson
That’s no man. He is something more than a man.

Wavy Crockett
An unstoppable force in MHW.

Ray Hudson
Where did Robert Mack find this monster?

Wavy Crockett
Who is Vance looking for, for him?


Ray Hudson
Well it’s time for Skrabz and Azurine Vebbins to dance again.

Wavy Crockett
What they was calling that last match? The Miracle of 34 Street?

Ray Hudson
No…

Tempa T’s “Next Hype” starts to play, the beat builds for ten seconds and then Skrabal Stanzas can be heard saying “Are you dizzy blud?”. The beat explodes and Tempa T immediately comes in with his lyrics.

♫♫♫
“What kind of things that you have
When I find out don’t expect me to stop
I’ll come for the P’s that you stack
And come for all the food that you plot
Better hand over the bag
Your boys don’t wanna see you shot
If I kick down the door to your flat
Dun Know I’ll clear out your house on the spot”

♫♫♫

Skrabal Stanzas comes walking out from the back still looking frustrated from earlier, holding only his MHW Ultinate Championship, with a bandage on his forehead.

♫♫♫
“CLEAR! All the things in your house
CLEAR! All the things in your fridge
SMASH! All your plates from your rack
CLEAR! All of your kids’ toys
CLEAR! All of your CD rack
Won’t get none of your CD’s back”

♫♫♫

Meozha Zhanae
The following match is for one fall!!! Making his way to the ring first… weighing in at 235 pounds….. from London, England……. he is the MHW Ultimate Champion… Skrabz!!!

Skrabz walks to the ring, his slow but deliberate swagger in direct contrast with the hype beat and aggressive lyrics.

♫♫♫
“I have to punch up guys
Guys try it with me, I don’t know why
Bax! Pax man straight in his eyes
They floored me, I was looking at the sky
Par! Now I have to go blind
That boy there I swear he gonna die
You’re not bad you’re a mug don’t think you’re a guy
When I slap man you won’t be alright”

♫♫♫

Skrabz walks up the steps and climbs into the ring, handing his belts over to the referee. He stands in the corner of the ring and leans back against the turnbuckle with his arms folded across his chest as the music fades out.

Wavy Crockett
So what happens if Azurine Vebbins defeats Skrabz again?

Ray Hudson
Skrabz is not going to let that happen again. There’s a reason it was called a “miracle” when Azurine won last time.

Wavy Crockett
Still mad at Azurine, Ray?

“Problem” by Postmodern Jukebox begins playing throughout the arena.

Ray Hudson
I’m just being honest. Personal issues do not play into my commentary.

Wavy Crockett
Well if you dont like Azurine, I love her.

“The Adorkable Angel” Azurine Vebbins has a solitary spotlight follow her from the entrance ramp to the northern-facing ring apron.

Meozha Zhanae
And his opponent… weighing in at 115 pounds….. residing in Malibu, California……. “The Adorkable Angel” Azurine Vebbins!!!

Along the way, Ms. Vebbins pirouettes, skanks, and twirls like a whirling dervish down to the ring.

Ray Hudson
You think she’s ever going to get a new theme song?

Wavy Crockett
I got some suggestions…

Ray Hudson
Keep them to yourself.

Wavy Crockett
Yes sir.

Azurine keeps dancing until getting onto the northern ringside apron and climbing through the middle and bottom ring ropes. Upon entering the ring, she dutifully awaits referee instruction.

Match Official: Regina Ball

Skrabz
vs
Azurine Vebbins

Both superstars circle the ring, Skrabz looking cool and confident, while Azurine just looks focused.

As soon as they get close enough to each other, Azurine goes for a dropkick that Skrabz swats away.

As soon as Azurine gets back to her feet, Skrabz drops her with a snap suplex. Skrabz quickly gets her back to her feet and she gets him with a knee strike.

Azurine hits Skrabz with a second knee strike, followed by a forearm strike. And then Skrabz just comes back with a hard clothesline, taking Azurine back down.

Skrabz went to get Azurine to her feet and she just pulled him right into her Inverted Juji Gatame!!

The fans were going nuts and the ref was checking on Skrabz, who was able to get his foot on the rope. The ref yelled at Azurine to let go and she did.

Skrabz got to his feet and Azurine took him down with a hip toss, before locking him into a sleeper hold with body scissors.

Skrabz was able to roll over, rolling over Azurine, who held on and both superstars went rolling out of the ring. Once they hit the outside, Azurine let go.

Both superstars wobbled to their feet and Skrabz sent a forearm blow to Azurine’s face. Azurine returned the love with an open palm strike. And then Skrabz sent a thumb to the eye before throwing her back into the ring.

As Azurine was getting to her feet, Skrabz went for his Scissor Kick!!

But Azurine moved out of the way and ran at Skrabz with a bulldog and then quickly attempted to hook Skrabz into a Boston crab.

Skrabz is able to quickly turn over and start kicking Azurine off of him. As soon as Skrabz gets to his feet, Azurine gives Skrabz a release German suplex that almost makes him land on his head.

As soon as Skrabz gets back to his feet, Azurine performs her Springboard Axe Handle!!

Azurine hooks the leg.

Skrabz stumbles to his feet and Azurine goes for her Sweetheart Sock Hop, but as she pulls him in for the ddt finale, Skrabz sent a hard Liver Punch her way!!!!!

Wavy Crockett
That didn’t last very long…

Ray Hudson
Yeah, I was at least expecting a war.

“Next Hype” by Tempa T plays throughout the arena.

Meozha Zhanae
And the winner of this match… Skrabz!!!

Skrabz doesn’t celebrate for long, as he shakes his head at Azurine Vebbins laying on the mat, before exiting the ring.

Wavy Crockett
Ray, you need to get out your feelings though.

Ray Hudson
I’m not in my feelings. I’m just being honest. I thought you’d appreciate that. You’re never afraid to say what’s on your mind.

Wavy Crockett
I’m starting to think you asked Azurine Vebbins on a date, and she said ‘no’.

Ray Hudson
Naw, I’m going on a date with Tammara.

Wavy Crockett
I’ll slap you…

Ray Hudson
In any event, Skrabz easily just shook off that lost to Azurine Vebbins some weeks back, with this victory.

Wavy Crockett
I’m shaking my head at Ray Hudson right now.


With the lights dimmed, the Shieldmaidens’ motto, “Hell is empty and the Maidens are here!” comes up on the Tron. Dublin Death Patrol’s “Pigs In The Hollow” hits and “Psycho” Saoirse Maguire comes walking through the entryway smirking cruelly.

Wavy Crockett
So who do you think this “Mystery Opponent” is?

Ray Hudson
I have an idea.

Wavy Crockett
I’m just sad that Space Lord is out.

Ray Hudson
Yeah, it was definately unfortunate.

Katrina “Knox” Knox and Aoife “Banshee” Maguire trail out behind her and then walk her to the ring.

Meozha Zhanae
The following match is for one fall, and is a Round One Match in The Rise of the Phoenix Tournament!!! Making her way to the ring first… weighing in at 105 pounds….. from Asheville, North Carolina……. being accompanied to the ring by her fellow Shieldmaidens… she is “Psycho” Saoirse Maguire!!!

Psycho slides into the ring looking like she can’t wait to get down to business.

Wavy Crockett
What if it’s Rock N’ Roll God?

Ray Hudson
You think Rock N’ Roll God has been putting those weird videos together?

Wavy Crockett
Well, The Party Boy became The Cold Hearted. Why can’t Rock N’ Roll God become the Stab N’ Kill God.

Ray Hudson
You are ridiculous…

The lights flicker until the sounds of electricity fill the arena as it is plunged into darkness. A moon appears on the titan-tron, as “Satan’s Arrival” by Pieces of Eden begins playing throughout the arena.

Wavy Crockett
That music sounds familiar.

Ray Hudson
Well that’s Gabriel Ohio’s music.

A white glow appears on the stage. Standing in the glow is the near 7 foot tall Gabriel Ohio, leather jacket with burn holes in it blowing in the wind, looking down at the floor. He looks up, with his face covered in a creepy bandaged mask, and walks slowly to the ring.

Wavy Crockett
What in the actual fuck….?


Meozha Zhanae

And her opponent… weighing in at 280 pounds….. from Parts Unknown……. Gabriel Ohio!!!

Ohio reaches the ring and steps up onto the apron and then over the top rope, his presence felt.

Ray Hudson
I guess his face hasn’t healed since that attack from Psycho.

Wavy Crockett
And what a return match. To face the woman who hurt him.

Ray Hudson
Or didnt hurt him. Remember he was smiling and laughing.

Wavy Crockett
He’s looking for revenge.

Match Official: John Paul Vigil

The Rise of the Phoenix Tournament
Round One Match

Psycho
vs
Gabriel Ohio

The fans are chanting “Holy Shit!” as the creepy mummy looking masked acid burned version of Gabriel Ohio stands before Psycho.

Psycho shakes any type of fear off and steps up to Ohio, yelling at him for the harassing videos he’s been sending her and Bruiser’s way these past few weeks.

Ohio grabs Psycho by the neck as she struggles to get free. Psycho sends a knee strike at Ohio. And another. And another. Until he finally let’s her go.

Psycho dropkicks Ohio, sending him stumbling backwards to the ropes. She runs at him and he throws her right over his head. She crashes on the concrete floor beneath her.

Ohio climbs out of the ring and gets Psycho to her feet, holding her by the hair. Psycho sends an elbow strike into Ohio’s chest. And another one.

Psycho starts sending leg kicks to Ohio, until he just drops her with a code breaker.

Ohio yanks her up again by the hair and tosses her back into the ring, slowly following behind her.

Ohio grabs her by the hair again and starts pulling her to her feet, when out of nowhere Psycho makes Ohio Kiss This!

Ohio looks to be grinning under all that bandage, as Psycho looks disgusted and let’s go. The ref looks to call for the bell, but Ohio talks him out of it.

Ohio sprays his Bloody Mary all in the face of Psycho!!

The fans are going nuts and the ref is so confused. Ohio gives Psycho a gorilla press spine buster and hooks then hooks the leg.

Kickout!!!

Ohio dominates for a while longer and then Psycho is able to get back control of the match, eyes still burning from the red mist.

The match comes to an end when Ohio gives Psycho the Fall From Grace, then hooks the leg.

Gabriel Ohio celebrates in the ring.

Ray Hudson
I did not expect any of this.

Wavy Crockett
All he ever had to do was dress up like a mummy for Halloween.

Ray Hudson
Stop it….

Wavy Crockett
I’m just saying.

Ray Hudson
In any event, Gabriel Ohio will face Azurine Vebbins in two weeks, for Round Two in this Tournament.

Wavy Crockett
And I know who you’re rooting for…


The hard rock open to “Evil” by Clutch plays across the arena as the lights dim and a spotlight appears on the stage as the team of the Ihari sisters stand. Muriko stands scowling with her arms crossed across her chest and Huruka stands in front of her giving the crowd a wave along with a huge smile. Muriko has had enough and bumps into Huruka, as if telling her to get going as the lyrics begin.

♫♫♫
#You’re a long way from home

#Can’t sleep at night

#Grab your telephone

#Something ain’t right
♫♫♫

As the vocalist sings the duo make their way down towards the ring. Huruka is slapping the hands of the fans from one side to the other as Muriko just walks straight down the middle of the aisle.

♫♫♫
#Well, that’s evil

#Evil going on

#And I’m warning you brother

#You better watch your happy home
♫♫♫

As they get to ringside, Huruka tries to go around the ring to slap more hands, but Muriko grabs her by the shoulder and pushes her towards the ring before climbing the steps and getting on the ring apron and looking out at the crowd. Huruka rolls underneath the ropes and jumps to her feet and gets on the second turnbuckle and poses to the crowd as their music fades. Huruka hops from the turnbuckle and asks for a microphone before she hands it to her sister.

Muriko Ihari
Min’na damare!

Huruka tries to help by putting a finger up to her lips to try and shush the booing audience.

Muriko Ihari
`Shieldmaidens’ wa DTI o taoshita toki ni hijō ni kōun ni narimashita! DTI ga atarashī chanpion ni naru hazudesu! Watashi no imōto to watashi wa mada nanbāwan no chōsen-shadeari, watashitachiha-betsu no tatakai ga hoshīdesu! `Shieldmaidens!’ Dete kite, watashitachi no chōsen o ukeirete kudasai!

Muriko hands off the microphone to her sister who translates.

Huruka Ihari
My sister say that Shieldmaidens are lucky to have beated DTI. That we are still the best challengers for the championship and we want to issue another challenge for the team championship. We want the Shieldmaidens to come out and accept!

Muriko snatches the microphone.

Muriko Ihari
Torikku wa arimasen. Chōsen shitai dakedesu. Detekuru!

Huruka takes the microphone and adds.

Huruka Ihari
My sister say there is no trick. No Coven is going to come. Come out and accept challenge.

Almost immediately after Huruka finishes talking, 3 Days Grace’s “Riot” blares over the PA, causing the crowd to roar in approval.

♫♫♫
“If you feel so empty

So used up, so let down

If you feel so angry

So ripped off, so stepped on

You’re not the only one

Refusing to back down

You’re not the only one

So get up”
♫♫♫

Jackie “Bandit” Layton and Samantha “The Titaness” Hamilton come out in casual attire, as neither are booked this evening. Over their shoulders, however, are the Mile High Wrestling Tag Team Titles. In their hands, they each hold a microphone.

Ray Hudson
Well Double Team Ihari looking for a second chance eh?

Wavy Crockett
Well, they deserve it, Ray.

The Shieldmaidens make eye contact, give each other a firm nod, then walk down the ramp. Eventually, they stand in front of the ring. Sam allows Bandit to go first, following close behind.

Muriko Ihari
Watashi no imōto to watashi wa anata ni chanpionshippumatchi ni chōsen shimasu. Konkai wa tatsumaki no rūru.

Huruka Ihari
My sister say that we challenge you for another match for championship, but we want tornado rules this time, on next time Throwdown. What say you?

Sam raises her mic up to her lips, her head moving from side to side as she chuckles softly.

Samantha “Titaness” Hamilton
So first thing’s first, let’s get one thing straight. That last match was not a fluke – nor lucky victory – no matter how much you wish it was.

The Titaness proudly pats her strap.

Samantha “Titaness” Hamilton
We’ve continued to hold onto these – and reclaim them if needed – for a damn good reason. The fact you’re even thinking luck helped us win makes me almost want to say no.

Her head turns to Bandit.

Samantha “Titaness” Hamilton
Luckily for you Coven bitches, I’m too stubborn to back down from a fight. So … partner? What do you think? Should they even get another chance this soon?

Jackie “Bandit” Layton
Didn’t know this was even a question! We’ve never backed down before, why start now?

The Ihari sisters exchange a smirk between then and nods.

Huruka Ihari
Good. Then we see you at next Throwdown.

As “Evil” plays the sisters exit the ring and head towards the ramp and then walk backwards up the ramp, exchanging a few words among themselves.



“Centuries” by Fall Out Boy hits the speakers and “Pretty” Ricky Stanton comes out to the ring in a ref’s shirt with some Cop shades on.

Ray Hudson
Well here comes Mr. Stanton; our Special Guest Referee for this red hot Tag Team Main Event.

Wavy Crockett
Why the hell is he wearing sunglasses inside?

Everyone’s booing as the Pretty Boy heads down the ramp. He walks into the ring and takes the mic from the announcer.

“Pretty” Ricky Stanton
HOW ABOUT YOU ALL SHUT THE HELL UP! The fact the Pretty Boy is calling this match JUST…BOOSTED…RATINGS.

The crowd boos.

“Pretty” Ricky Stanton
WHAT?? STILL LOOKING FOR YOUR WILD DOG??? HE’S DONE! HE DOES WHAT WILD DOGS DO – THEY RUN AWAY! Let’s get this thing started!!!!

Stanton chucks the mic out the ring and sits in the corner.

Ray Hudson
Maybe after the show you can give Mr. Stanton some fashion advice.

Wavy Crockett
Naw, I’m good. Besides, we wouldn’t be able to hang out backstage. His head is too big for us to both fit in one room.

♫♫♫
When I look out my window,

many sights to see.

And when I look in my window,

so many different people to be.

That its strange.

So strange.
♫♫♫

The fans are a bit confused at first at Amy Montgomery’s version of “Season of the Witch”, but as the Coven logo appears on the screen, they begin to boo.

♫♫♫
You got to pick up every stitch.

Must be the season of the witch
♫♫♫

Jansen’s name comes across the screen as her music continues to play.

♫♫♫
When I look over my shoulder,
what do you think I see?
Summer kept lookin over his shoulder at me.
And hes strange,
sure is strange.
You got to pick up every stitch, yeah.
Beatnicks are out to make it rich.
Must be the season of the witch,
♫♫♫

A masked Jansen Myrrh finally steps out of the shadows as she carries her pool cue stick with her. She glances from one side of the arena to the next and then just shakes her head in disgust as behind her, Maho appears standing stoicly.

Meozha Zhanae
The following match is your Tag Team Main Event for the night, and is for one fall!!! Making her way to the ring first… weighing in at 171 pounds….. from Augusta, Georgia……. she is being accompanied to the ring by Maho… Jansen Myrrh!!!

Jansen and Maho finally stride down towards the ring. Jansen’s dressed to wrestle with the addition of a leather jacket. She steps up into the ring and hands off her cue stick to Maho before she moves from one side of the ring to the next and just shakes her head as she removes her jacket and tosses it out of the ring and walks to her corner.

Ray Hudson
I guess Jansen Myrrh got her some new theme music.

Wavy Crockett
If you were a wrestler, what would your theme music be?

Ray Hudson
I never really thought about it before.

Wavy Crockett
Probably something a douchebag would come out to. Like “Centuries” by Fall Out Boy or something.

Ray Hudson
You would never say that to Mr. Stanton’s face.

The opening saxophone of ‘Jubel’ begins to play over the PA and as it speeds up, eventually it hits a crescendo into a drop.

“Save me”

Tyke Index appears from behind the curtain with a hood over his head just as the chorus rolls. There is rapturous jeers from the crowd as Tyke poses at the bottom of the ring steps before entering the ring.

Meozha Zhanae
And her opponent… weighing in at 200 pounds….. residing in Brooklyn, New York……. Tyke Index!!!

“5..4..3..2..1..”

The lights go off and when they come back on Tyke is sitting in his corner with very little exchange between himself and his tag team partner, Jansen Myrrh.

Wavy Crockett
So who you got for this match, Ray?

Ray Hudson
Well according to Twitter exchanges, these two aren’t going to be able to co-exist.

Wavy Crockett
I think that lack of chemistry is going to help. My money’s on Jansen and Tyke.

Ray Hudson
Well that’s not a safe bet at all.

Wavy Crockett
I like to live on the edge.

The lights dim and the crowd starts to murmur in anticipation. Three Days Grace’s “Riot” starts playing and the Shieldmaidens’ logo pops up on the entrance screen.

♫♫♫
“If you feel so empty

So used up, so let down

If you feel so angry

So ripped off, so stepped on

You’re not the only one

Refusing to back down

You’re not the only one

So get up”
♫♫♫

Shieldmaidens’ President, Alex “Bullet” Carbajal, steps out first, to her immediate right stands her fellow group member, Becca “Bruiser” Maguire, to her left, Aoife “Banshee” Maguire. Stepping out, Katrina “Knox” Knox on the far left. Slipping in to the right is Wendy “Zombie” Stevens. With all four in place, Bullet nods and they stare the ring down like it owes them all money.

Meozha Zhanae
And their opponent… weighing in at a combined weight of 292 pounds….. from New Orleans, Louisiana……. The Shieldmaidens!!!

♫♫♫
“Let’s start a riot, a riot

Let’s start a riot

Let’s start a riot, a riot

Let’s start a riot”
♫♫♫

As the chorus rages over the speakers, Bullet leads her group to the ring. They surround the ring, Bruiser going around the right while Knox and Banshee go to the left. Zombie follows Bruiser and then keeps going so as to give the ring one ‘Maiden on all four sides.

♫♫♫
“If you feel so filthy

So dirty, so fucked up

If you feel so walked on

So painful, so pissed off

You’re not the only one

Refusing to go down

You’re not the only one

So get up”
♫♫♫

They nod to each other as they wait for the chorus to kick in again.

♫♫♫
“Let’s start a riot, a riot

Let’s start a riot

Let’s start a riot, a riot

Let’s start a riot”
♫♫♫

As soon as it starts, Bullet nods and the four women all climb up into the ring and make their way to the middle, taking their places as they face the hard camera in the same order they stood on the stage. The chorus plays again and Bullet raises her fist, the other five doing the same in unison, all seemingly ready to conquer the world before them. As the rest of Shieldmaidens leave the ring, Bullet and Zombie stick around for their match as the referee walks over and calls for the bell.

Match Official: “Pretty” Ricky Stanton

Tag Team Match
Tyke Index and Jansen Myrrh
vs
Bullet and Zombie

Tyke gets out on the apron, leaving Jansen in the ring as Maho rolls under the ring and to the floor. The Shieldmaiden team have a brief convo and then Bullet leaves the ring, putting Jansen and Zombie against one another again for the first time since Mile High Spectacular 2.

As the two circle the ring, Jansen reaches over and tags in Tyke then bails from the ring to confer with Maho as Tyke looks pleasantly annoyed while Jansen yells at him to get in there.

Zombie backs into her corner and chats briefly with Bullet as Stanton tells Index to get into the ring.

Tyke hesitates as Stanton gets annoyed and starts to count him out. Tyke dips his foot into the ring and then slowly the rest of him follows.

Tyke and Zombie finally meet up and lock up, Tyke pushes Zombie into the ropes, but Jansen, still on the floor, reaches in and trips Zombie who falls down and Tyke jumps all over her.

Bullet hops down from the apron and runs around to confront Jansen who climbs back up into her corner as the referee, Ricky Stanton, warns Bullet back to her corner. All the while, Tyke is putting the boots to Zombie on the mat.

Tyke drags her over and places her throat over the second rope and then leans his leg over the back of her neck as Ricky Stanton gets in there and counts, though perhaps a little slowly.

Tyke finally releases before he gets disqualified and Stanton reads him the riot act, turning his back on Zombie — allowing Jansen Myrrh to take over as she puts her weight on the back of Zombie’s neck now and continues the choke, only moving away when Ricky starts to turn back around at the behest of Bullet who is yelling at Ricky about Jansen’s cheating tactics, but as he turns around Jansen is back in her corner, holding the tag rope.

Tyke pulls up Zombie and tries to whip her into the ropes, but she stops short and brings him in with a short clothesline and then stumbles back and tags in Bullet.

As Tyke gets to his feet, Bullet nails him with a clothesline, putting him back down — then she charges the corner and nails Jansen, sending her tumbling to the floor as Maho rushes over to check on her friend.

Tyke to his feet, he turns around into a vicious forearm strike by Bullet and another. He gets back up and Bullet tries for an elbow, but Tyke ducks and as Jansen is getting up in her corner, he slaps her hand, tagging her into the match.

As Ricky moves into a corner to watch the match, Bullet drives an elbow into the back of Jansen’s head as she gets into the ring and then Bullet whips Jansen into her corner and comes over and tags in Zombie, who has recovered.

The Shieldmaidens double team whip Jansen into the ropes and Zombie catches her with a spinebuster and Bullet runs off the ropes and hits her with a knee strike.

Ricky has pulled something out of his pocket. The camera closes in and it’s some Peanut M&Ms as he opens the bag and begins to snack. Zombie goes for a pin, but Ricky doesn’t move as he’s too engrossed in his snacking to bother to count the pin.

Furious, Zombie gets up and confronts Stanton who happens to pull a red M&M from the pouch and he makes a face before flicking the M&M that bounces off the forehead of Zombie who starts to go for Stanton.

Ricky reminds her that he’s the referee and to get back to the match. Bullet is in and she tries to reason with Zombie as Jansen is crawling towards a neutral corner and pulling herself to her feet.

Zombie glares at Bullet before nodding and turns around. She charges in towards Jansen who lifts her foot up but Zombie grabs her in an arm and shoulder throw, sending her back to the mat.

Jansen lays sprawled out on the mat as Zombie moves in and motions to the crowd that she’s going to take the mask off. The crowd comes to life, but quickly Stanton is there and tells her if she does, he will disqualify her.

Angry, Zombie marches over and tags in Bullet who comes in and reaches for Jansen, who cradles her.

Kickout!

Bullet leaps up and levels Jansen with a clothesline. Tyke is in the corner yelling at Jansen to get up and come tag. Stanton yells at Tyke to shut up.

Jansen tries to crawl towards the ropes, but Bullet grabs her arm and tries to pull her up but Jansen grabs her and pulls her down, throating her over the second rope.

Jansen starts a slow crawl towards her corner and finally tags in Tyke as Bullet tags in Zombie.

They both rush in, but Zombie ducks a wild punch by Tyke and levels him with a clothesline. He quickly gets to his feet and she grabs him and belly to belly suplexes him in the middle of the ring before dropping him again with a ddt.

Tyke rolls over and staggers to his feet as Zombie catches him with the Pilgrim/Defender!!!

Zombie goes for the cover and Ricky dramatically slides down for the count!

Then Stanton stops and holds up one finger, despite the fact that Tyke did not kick out. Zombie looks up at him incredulously and motions for a three count, but Ricky holds up one finger and then motions that he got his shoulder up when he obviously did not.

Zombie’s face turns to anger when from the back comes out Jack Glascock. He slides into the ring and confronts Ricky Stanton about doing the referee job.

As that is happening, Jansen sees the referees are distracted and starts to get into the ring, but Zombie has Tyke up, whips him into their corner and Tyke and Jansen’s heads collide, causing Jansen to fall out of the ring and Zombie rolls up Tyke as Jack Glascock turns around, and he drops down and counts.

WINNER:
The Shieldmaidens

Match Length: 16:55
Ray Hudson
The Shieldmaidens win another one!

As Jack Glascock gets to his feet, Ricky clotheslines him hard, sending him down to the mat. He grabs Jack and throws him over the top rope and out of the ring and then starts towards Zombie, but she’s already on her feet with Bullet at her side and Ricky decides to step outside — telling her that he’ll see her at Black Magic, as “Riot” by Three Days Grace begins to play throughout the arena.

Wavy Crockett
That’s right! Walk away, coward!

Meozha Zhanae
And the winners of this match… Bullet and Zombie… The Shieldmaidens!!!

Bullet and Zombie celebrate in the ring.

Ray Hudson
Mr. Stanton being the smart man that he is. He’s got Zombie at Black Magic.

Wavy Crockett
He’s going to get his ass kicked at Black Magic.

All of a sudden, Skrabz slides into the ring and starts stalking Tyke Index, who is laying down holding his head. Skrabz makes eye contact with both Shieldmaidens and they just nod and exit the ring.

Ray Hudson
Oh boy! I believe Skrabz is out here for revenge.

Wavy Crockett
Tyke surely didn’t bring that Phoenix Title out here with him.

Tyke starts slowly getting up, and once to his feet Skrabz gets him in position for a Snare Clap. But all of a sudden, the foreboding guitars and drums of Kamelot’s “Necropolis” starts up.

Ray Hudson
Ummm….

Wavy Crockett
Holy fuck….

Skrabz thinks about what this means and he just shoves Tyke down, slowly turning around to meet this new nightmare that’s been causing mayhem in MHW.

Ray Hudson
Tyke Index’s new buddy is on his way to the ring.

Wavy Crockett
Skrabz is a dead man..

Reaper, with AMV4 in tow, makes his way down the ramp, slowly, as the fans chant “Holy Shit!” for like the third time tonight.

Ray Hudson
Reaper may be biting off more than he can chew.

Wavy Crockett
Are you fucking kidding me?

Skrabz jaws are clenched, as are his fists, as he awaits Reaper to arrive inside the ring.

Ray Hudson
The fans here tonight are jumping out of their seats.

Wavy Crockett
Skrabz better run! For real for real!

As Reaper gets right in front of the ring, Tyke Index spins Skrabz around only to eat a Mic Check!!!

Ray Hudson
Mic Check!!!

Wavy Crockett
He’s only pissing Reaper off more!

Ray Hudson
How can you tell? He’s wearing a mask!

Reaper still slowly climbs up onto the apron, and over the top rope. Once in the ring, Reaper steps up to Skrabz and the two superstars stand face to face as the fans now chant “This Is Awesome!”

Wavy Crockett
I got goosebumps…

Ray Hudson
Definately not a picture we were expecting to see tonight.

Skrabz doesn’t look the least bit scared. AMV4 is telling Skrabz that he doesn’t want any of what is standing before him. Skrabz ignores every word, never breaking eye contact with Reaper.

Wavy Crockett
It’s okay to walk away sometimes. Dont let your pride get you killed, my G.

Finally AMV4 whispers something to Reaper, and Reaper walks around Skrabz, picking Tyke Index up and carrying him away, as Skrabz keeps his eyes locked on Reaper the whole time. Some fans are now booing.

Ray Hudson
I guess he’s just here to collect his new friend.

Wavy Crockett
See, God just gave Skrabz a second chance.

Ray Hudson
We got just one more ThrowDown before Black Magic, folks! See you in two weeks…

Reaper carries Tyke Index up the ramp, similar to two weeks ago, as this episode of MHW ThrowDown fades to black.

BONUS

MHW YouTube Exclusive opens up inside an MHW studio, somewhere backstage in San Antonio. Augustina Saiz is sitting across from Robert Mack.

Augustina Saiz
Welcome Mile High Club to the Official MHW YouTube Page, and we are live right now with the founder of Mile High Wrestling, Robert Mack, for an exclusive interview, right here for MHW YouTube Exclusive. I am Augustina Saiz, and we have a few topics to discuss, dont we, Mr. Mack?

Robert Mack
Sure thing.

Augustina Saiz
So let’s jump right into it? What exactly happened with Solomon Cain?

Robert nods his head as if he knew that would be the first question.

Robert Mack
It’s on the website. It’s all unfortunate. But to be honest, I wasn’t surprised at all..

Augustina Saiz
Well the rest of the world was. What do you know that we dont know?

Robert Mack
A lot..

Robert laughs a little.

Robert Mack
I mean…. he had a lot of issues. Unlike on tv, you know obviously we talked backstage. He wasn’t a happy guy. That last loss he took to Skrabz was rough for him. Anytime he lost, it was rough. And by “rough”, I mean unlike anyone else. Everyone hates losing of coarse. But he just really took that shit hard. I mean… rewind back to after Mile High Spectacular. My man looked like he was about to kill himself or something, before Tyke Index intervened.

Augustina nods.

Augustina Saiz
Yeah, that was one of the odd segments we have witnessed in MHW.

Robert Mack
Right. But that’s how he rocks. I was always around trying to talk him up, keep him as far away from those situations as I could. But you can only do so much. I guess he had high hopes he was going to Black Magic for that Round Three. And that just wasn’t the case. So he handled that depression the way he handles it. But fortunately, we are paying for his treatment, and hopefully he gets his shit together.

Augustina Saiz
Why did you fire him, if you’re paying for his rehab?

Robert Mack
I’m paying for his rehab. He’s not competing for us. He’s not working for us. He can’t. He’s not in the right mind to, obviously. So why keep paying him money he’s not earning?

Augustina Saiz
Fair enough. Can we expect him back in an MHW ring in the future?

Robert Mack
Surely. I’ve attempted to re-sign RJ Mitchell twice already. I’m all about second chances. When the time is right and the stars align, make lemonade. Or some shit like that…

Robert smirks and Augustina smiles back, shaking her head.

Augustina Saiz
What about Lance Mikes? What’s the update with him?

Robert Mack
I talked a little bit with him this morning. I know he was tweeting with Ricky Stanton recently, wanting a match I proposed. I was just trying to see what we could do. But he hasn’t told me he’s cleared yet. And Ricky didn’t seem very interested in stepping into the ring with Lance anyways.

Augustina raises an eyebrow.

Augustina Saiz
So you don’t know when he’s coming back?

Robert thinks.

Robert Mack
Well he never officially started, to “come back”.

Augustina Saiz
I sense a little frustration. Do you still have a problem with Lance Mikes?

Robert shakes his head.

Robert Mack
Naw. Not at all.

Augustina Saiz
You sure?

Robert nods.

Robert Mack
Yes ma’am.

Augustina looks disappointed she couldn’t rile the boss up.

Augustina Saiz
As soon as this interview is over, you will be preparing yourself to start off ThrowDown, as you plan to call out the MHW Ultimate Champion Skrabz. What are you planning to say to him?

Robert laughs and raises an eyebrow, as if that was a stupid question to ask.

Robert Mack
Tune into ThrowDown, on The SE network, to find out.

Augustina rolls her eyes.

Augustina Saiz
There were rumors that your long time friend Samantha Hamilt…

Robert quickly stands up and starts unhooking his mic set up.

Robert Mack
This was fun, Stina. Maybe we can talk some more after ThrowDown. I gotta go speak with the champ…

Robert walks off the set and Augustina now looks frustrated, but quickly forces a smile, looking into the camera.

Augustina Saiz
Well, that was your YouTube Exclusive this week. Do tune into The SE Network in just a few minutes to see another action packed night of Mile High Wrestling. Goodnight Mile High Club.

MHW YouTube Exclusive fades to black.
