CARTIER: You’re exactly right! And as a matter of fact. Any of you whom are wanting to step up, you’ve got about five minutes because after the commercial break I’ll be waiting for you in the ring!
Cartier steps out of the picture and exits the frame.

The lights go down as "Judas" by Septogram echoes through the PA system. The lyrics "You are beautiful on the inside, you are innocence personified" are the first words heard and at that time, a strobe light effect with a red hue highlights the walkway. Emma Douglas walks out, takes a quick moment to gather herself and then hyped herself up, letting out almost a roar. From there, she walks down, almost sneering at the crowd with contempt. She makes a point not to let the crowd touch her as she passes.
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Emma Douglas has answered the open challenge and runs straight down to the ring while Cartier appears hesitant, seeing how fired up Emma Douglas is.
MAINSTREAM WRESTLING WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP
★★★ CARTIER (C) ★★★ vs ★★★ EMMA DOUGLAS ★★★
The bell rings and this impromptu World Television Championship open challenge is officially underway! Emma Douglas immediately tackles Cartier, slamming her to the mat and mounting her while delivering vicious ground and pound punches. Cartier eventually is able to turn the tables and get on top of Emma, but she misses with her attempted forearm shot and Emma locks on an armbar right away, making a screaming Cartier scramble and twist her body to get a foot on the ropes and force a break!
Emma Douglas unnecessarily seems to be rushing to her feet. Looking to maintain any form of advantage she may have from her surprise acceptance of this open challenge. She pulls her up and sends Cartier into to the ropes but ducks the attempt at a clothesline from Emma Douglas. Emma tries to follow up with a back elbow but Cartier snags her arm and locks in a Full Nelson! Cartier then lifts Douglas into a sitout atomic drop that spikes Douglas right onto her tailbone. Cartier rolls backward in a somersault and when she gets to her feet she drills a shin right into the back of Emma’s head to lay her down, then she drops a leg drop in full splits across the challenger’s head for 1…2…KICKOUT!
Cartier nearly had her challenger put away. She rolls over and gets to her feet, just as she does Emma isn’t far behind her. In fact Emma Douglas ducks under a wild punch and latches Cartier around the waist from behind. She looks to be trying to lift her for a German suplex, but Cartier is fighting it, tossing back elbows and trying to fight free. Emma changes tactics, released the hold only to grab Cartier's wrist and ripcord her away, rolling into a Koppo kick, catching Cartier right in the jaw, dropping her to the mat. Emma is quick to stay in the attack and proceeds to mount Cartier's chest and bash her head against the mat!
The official intervenes and warns Emma of the hair pulling and separates the champion and challenger. Douglas looks across the ring rushing past the official to get to Cartier but with a lift on Emma, the champion carried her into the corner and drives her against the top turnbuckle shoulder blade first. Cartier takes a step back, Emma painfully steps out of the corner with Cartier looking for a spinning backbreaker on Emma Douglas but Douglas flows through the lift and lands on her feet. She spins into a discus lariat and flattens the World Television Champion, then yanks her right back up into a piledriver… a package piledriver! The Queen’s End! Emma Douglas gets every bit of the move and holds onto Cartier’s hips after executing to transition into a pin for 1…2…KICKOUT!
Cartier kicks out using both legs! She had to put so much into it she ends up flipping onto her stomach! Slowly but surely the two get to there feet with Emma being nailed by repeated forearm strikes to the face and it looks to be pissing her off more than anything. She just lets out a banshee like roar in Cartier's face in defiance. Cartier manages to duck a clothesline and bounces off the rope, but as she is coming back, Emma flattens her with a high roundhouse kick to the face. From there, Emma grabs Cartier and picks her up by the neck with both hands, pulling her off her feet, just dangling there. Emma smirks and just drops the smaller woman with a tree slam, hitting her head hard on the mat. Emma Douglas extends both arms turning and laughing hysterically with the fans booing loudly.
With her back turned Cartier pulls herself up using the bottom rope. The fans cheer in excitement as Emma looks over her shoulder smirking. The two square up in the center of the ring and Cartier finds herself in an unfamiliar position - ending up on the losing side of a boxing match. Douglas’ unorthodox strikes and her overall ferocity and speed keep Cartier on the defensive and she ends up backing into a corner and doing her best to cover up… which gives Douglas the opportunity to climb onto the bottom rope and stand over Cartier, drilling down punches into her forehead while the crowd counts along to ten! Ah, but Cartier grabs Dopuglas before the tenth strike and steps away from the corner, plowing Emma down to the mat with a ferocious powerbomb! With the cover for 1…2…BREAK!
The official sees the foot on the rope and stops the count! Cartier is FUMING! But she won’t let up on Emma, grabbing her by the hair and just blasting her in the midsection with hard knees that get the challenger folded over and sucking wind. Cartier hits the ropes and comes off in a flash with a Sizzurp Kick! Emma is dropped onto her face and Cartier decides it’s time to add a little flavor to the match…she stands Douglas up and runs the ropes again, then flies off with a supersonic Eat This ASS!!! Emma catches her in midair! Emma holds onto Cartier in a waistlock with her feet off the ground and arches back into a German suplex… but doesn’t let go! Instead she transitions into a double chickenwing and drops Cartier in a tiger suplex! And then holds on again, moving into a dragon suplex to finish off the ChimeraPlex trifecta! Douglas bridges for the 1…2…NEARFALL!
Cartier rolls off of her shoulder at the last second! Emma rolls over to a knee and pushes herself up off a single knee bud is immediately pushed back against at the ropes with a drop kick. We see Cartier is trying to nail Emma with Eat That Ass, but Emma counters that with a stiff kick right to the spine pushing her away. Emma pulls her up to her feet and pushes back against the ropes, catching her with Bedlam upon her return, making a full rotation in the process. Emma stands back up onto her feet and then just drops a leg drop right across Cartier's throat, staying there, grabbing Cartier's far leg for a cover for 1…2…NEARFALL!
Douglas is beside herself! She can’t believe the World Television Champion just kicked out! She pulls her up and Irish whips her into the ropes, they criss cross, bouncing the ropes past each other, and each one has the same idea at the same time, grabbing the other by the hair and spinning themselves down in a helicoptering dual facebuster!
…1! …2! …3! …4! …5! …6! …7! …8!
Cartier is up first and as Emma Douglas stands she gets sucker punched with a right cross, firing her up! Emma looks to return the shot with another discus lariat, but Cartier jumps up and hits a standing meteora from out of nowhere! Emma is planted to the mat and Cartier heads up top and strikes a pose with her tongue wagging…SUPA DUPA FLY SLAM!!! Cartier grins as Douglas goes limp!
“I’m only happy when it rains...” by Garbage begins to play throughout the arena. Skye Healy walks out amidst panning and strobing yellow purple lights. She walks down the aisle with confidence with the Legacy Championship across her shoulder.
Healy heads down to the ring and Cartier hops to her feet, going to the ropes and shouting down at her rival from inside the ring. Skye barks back at her and luckily for any viewers at home the censors catch the worst of it. At the end, Cartier simply tells Healy to “watch this!” and then turns her attention back to a kneeling Emma Douglas. Cartier runs at her for the Empire State of Mind BUT GETS A FACE FULL OF GREEN MIST FROM EMMA DOUGLAS! Cartier is blinded and stunned in the middle of the ring as Emma Douglas scoops her up…BEDLAM SLAM!!! Emma makes then cover for 1…2…3!
GRAHAM STEVENS: Your winner by pin fall AND NEW Mainstream Wrestling World Television Champion…EMMA—DOUGLAS!
CHARLES HUDSON: She’s done it!
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Ladies and Gentlemen we have a brand new World Television Champion!
CHARLES HUDSON: This is Emma Douglas’ first taste of singles championship here in Mainstream Wrestling!
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Confratulations to the new Mainstream Wrestling World Television Champion…the Mistress of Mayhem!
Post by Robb Daniels on Feb 26, 2022 1:33:35 GMT -5
BACKSTAGE... Returning from commercial break you can see Emma Douglas sauntering in the hallway somewhere deep in the belly of the arena,a smirk on her face. She has the Mainstream World Television Championship trailing out from her right hand as she looks like the cat who are the canary, big smug smile on her face. She turns a corner and runs smack dab into her tag team partner and confidante, Sage Lowry. Sage chuckles and gives the bigger woman a pat on the shoulder.
SAGE LOWRY There she is, the woman of the hour. Your new World Television Champion....
Emma laughs and holds up her nhand, stopping Sage mid sentence.
EMMA DOUGLAS: Yes yes, I know what you're going to say, I earned it and it's a long time coming, despite the tactics used to obtain it. It's not my fault she fell prey to an opening and I seized the opportunity.
Emma shrugs and holds up the title, pushing the face plate towards Sage.
EMMA DOUGLAS: And you know what? This is only the beginning. This is a statement. It shows that no one is safe from us, from me. From the Legacy Champion on up, no one is safe and out of harm's way when it comes to where my particular brand of mayhem might fall. Just because I have this shiny new trinket doesn't mean I'm sated. Not in the least. I still have my World Heavyweight Title shot for winning that ladder match and becoming your "Queen". And I plan on cashing that baby in on my time. Not anyone else's but mine. because I'm going to be smart about it and pick the time to strike. Anything else would just be foolish.
Sage crosses her arms in front of her and smile smiles and nods as she listens to Emma.
SAGE LOWRY: I can't say I blame you in the least and so look forward to being right at your side when your rip that title away from Madison and shut his arrogant ass up. I. Cannot. Wait.
Emma nods towards Sage and wipes her chin, trying to wipe a bit of the most off from the do ish of the match.
EMMA DOUGLAS: Come on, Sage. I gotta get cleaned up and we're going to paint the town red.
Sage looks a little leery as Emma bursts on by, not quite sure how Emma means that last part. Know Emma s as well as she does, it could mean a few differ scenarios, none of them one would exactly call...pleasant. Sage shrugs and follows the joyous Mistress of Mayhem down the hall as we face to black.

BACKSTAGE... BLAKE O’REILLY: Hey. HEY!
Blake O'Reilly is heard yelling as the camera shows backstage in the catering area as Blake comes storming in towards his partner Bobby Larson who is eyeing some desserts. Blake smacks a cookier out of his hand before he can take a bite.
BLAKE O’REILLY: F*** that cookie. What's going on you? We are the Got-damned Tag Team Champions and you're out here eye fucking the competition. Look at this.
Blake pulls out his phone showing Bobby a Twitter post of Delaney Kingston
BLAKE O’REILLY: See that? Taken. You don't have a chance. Now I need you to get this through your head...
Blake points to Bobby's Championship.
BLAKE O’REILLY: We became the champions by being focused... I need to know... and to hear it out your got-damned mouth that you still are focused on these here championships. The only friends you need are Me and Poppa Biggs. LaTaylor Made are no Allies. You saw what that little witch tried to do to me last show. Come on bro!
Bobby takes a bite of his cookie, chewing it and swallowing before calmly replying to his partner.
BOBBY LARSON: Woah woah woah, buddy. You know that I’m a lover and a fighter. It ain’t no thing for me to have some fun with some pretty ladies, when that bell rings, Imma be all business. You can count on that.
BLAKE O’REILLY: Listen bro, I’m not going to lose these titles on account of you making googly eyes during the match! I know you! You can’t just turn it off and on like that!
BOBBY LARSON: No googly eyes will be made! When we are in the heat of battle, I will be a warrior! I guarantee you that! I swear on my love for my momma that I’ll be focused from bell to bell. You bein’ angry all the time, that’s gonna give you a hernia, man, and where will that leave us? Delaney and Elena are gonna set me up with a foxy lady. Maybe you and your gal can join us on a group date!
BLAKE O’REILLY: You better make good if you're bringing Mama Larson into this discussion. I hear your words but I'm detecting some bull. You watched that witch put hands on me and took your sweet time getting her off! Any girl they set you up with will be an air head like them! I'm your partner I'll set you up with a fine baddie! Forget them!
BOBBY LARSON: Hey, I’m single and ready to mingle, if you want a crack at setting me up, I don’t see any harm in that.
At this point, Biggs walks up behind his proteges, putting a hand on each of their shoulders.
BIGGS: Guys, I got an idea for our team name, the Triple Bs! It works on two levels, cause obviously, Biggs, Bobby and Blake, but then you got the brains…
Biggs points to himself.
BIGGS: The Brawn…
Biggs points to Blake.
BIGGS: And the beauty!
Biggs points to Bobby. Blake and Bobby both shake their heads disapprovingly.
BLAKE O’REILLY: I’m the brawn and the beauty, thank you very much!
BOBBY LARSON: Yeah, and I’m more than just a pretty face!
BIGGS: Back to the drawing board, I guess. But hey, on the bright side, at least you guys finally agreed on something!
BOBBY LARSON: Hey we did! Upstairs my man!
Bobby puts his hand up for a high-five. Blake shakes his head again.
BLAKE O’REILLY: Nah son, not until I’m sure you’ve got this school boy crush out of your system…
Blake adjusts his title on his shoulder turning his back.
BLAKE O’REILLY: I'm gonna hit the gym and read the book you gave me Poppa Biggs. You remember what I told you Bobby.
Blake huffs and storms off before Biggs can correct him about calling him Poppa Biggs again leaving Bobby and Biggs trading a look and shrug.

MAINSTREAM WRESTLING WORLD TELEVISION GRAND PRIX
★★★ ARIA PRICE ★★★ vs ★★★ BLAKE O’REILLY ★★★ vs ★★★ DELANEY KINGSTON ★★★
The bell rings and this match is officially underway! Blake O'Reilly immediately starts this one out on the outside of the ring rolling under the bottom ropes, making the other two competitors yell out at him. As he shrugs his shoulders he motions for them to start the match.
Aria and Delaney both shake their heads at Him as they soon begin a lock up as Delaney quickly takes the head of Aria but Price quickly slips out of it and takes control of the waist Delaney spins her around but both disengage and look up to Blake O'Reilly coming off the top rope hitting them both with a Springboard double drop kick!
Blake yanks Aria up by her hair to a standing position. Blake Irish whips Aria price towards the ropes waiting for her to rebound before he tosses her high up into the air then catches her with a quick Samoan drop!
Blake smirks now turning his attention to Delaney picking her up in similar fashion, but she slaps him hard across the face creating some space! Blake ducks Delaney's clothesline and comes in like a bullet train off the rebound of the ropes with a clothesline from hell that forces her to backflip in the air landing hard on the mat!
Blake then lifts Delaney up and drives her into the ring with a Spinebuster! He immediately climbs up the top turnbuckle before leaping off with a picture perfect moonsault!
Blake slaps his own chest getting hype before feeling a clubbing blow to the back from Price. Blake turns around and kicks Aria in the gut before lifting her up in powerbomb position and throws her into the corner with a Buckle bomb! As she staggers out of the corner Blake comes flying in with a claymore kick!
He picks up her practically lifeless body and O'Reilly hooks the opponent's head in a reverse DDT fashion before spinning and driving their face into the mat! O'Reilly Factor and hooks the leg for 1…2…3!
GRAHAM STEVENS: Your winner by pin fall and advancing in the World Television Grand Prix is…BLAKE—O’REILLY!
CHARLES HUDSON: He’s one half of the Mainstream Wrestling Tag Team Champions, but he’s not content. He’s looking to add some singles gold to his collection!
The bell rings and Blake leans over the top rope to hard cam mouthing off. "LIGHT WORK BABY." As he music blares over the speakers. He dusts his feet backwards to both women before rolling out of the ring grabbing his tag title and slinging it over his shoulder flexing his pectoral muscles to the camera.
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Team Sexy is on a roll as of late!
CHARLES HUDSON: Biggs is somewhere right now with a smile on his face, watching his protege move on in the Grand Prix!

MAINSTREAM WRESTLING WORLD TELEVISION GRAND PRIX
★★★ BIANCA REED ★★★ vs ★★★ ROBERT ZODIAC ★★★ vs ★★★ SAGE LOWRY ★★★
The bell rings as Zodiac, Reed and Lowry all eye each other up before Zodiac starts off by walking to the center and challenges them both to rush him before holding his arms out, goading the two even more. Lowry and Reed both rush him at the same time, and faster than Zodiac anticipated. He begins covering his face and head as they begin pummeling away on him with clubbing blows and various strikes. This forces Zodiac to backpedal and down to one knee against the ropes.
CHARLES HUDSON: A little 2 girls, 1 Zodiac here it seems…
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Don't be weird.
Lowry looks at Reed and the two nod at each other, knowing they have to take him out early for a better chance of them winning and advancing in the tournament. Reed drags Zodiac up and ties his arms in the top and middle ropes, begins laying in shots to Zodiacs head and steps back as Lowry comes in with a huge pump kick that connects directly with Zodiacs forehead! He falls deadweight but his arms are still tangled and this allows Reed to come in with a vicious rising knee that rocks Zodiac for a second time! The momentum and frequent movement causes the ropes to untangle and he drops to the mat, rolling outside the ring. Reed rolls out of the ring as Lowry tells her to get him back in but as soon as Reed turns around to reply, Zodiac scrambles up off the ground and charges into Reed as he rushes her backwards into the ring apron and they both crash to the ground!
The referee's count is reset as Lowry rolls out and grabs Zodiac, rolling him back in. Zodiac begins to work his way back to his feet but Lowry is back in and on the offense before he can get to a vertical base. Lowry begins laying in with strikes that keep him doubled over before she runs off the ropes but he manages to roll out of the way and get back to his feet before delivering an enziguri directly to the temple! Lowry drops to the mat face first and Zodiac gets back to his feet before following up with a running senton directly across her back before he gets back to his feet and locks her in a Camel Clutch as she starts screaming in pain before Reed comes from out of nowhere and dropkicks Zodiac clean off of her.
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Nice save by Bianca Reed!
Reed rips Robert off the canvas, throwing him into the ropes, but he wraps his arms around the top rope to stop himself from rebounding. She rushes him but he catches her with a back elbow to the jaw that stops her dead in her tracks before he kicks her in the midsection and grabs her head. He jumps up and uses the middle rope to springboard off and spin around with a tornado DDT that plants Reed! Zodiac kips up and grabs her by the hair and quickly pulls her up before firing off a series of forearms that force her backwards as he maneuvers her toward the corner.
CHARLES HUDSON: Zodiac is being his usual Madman with those forearms!
He backs up and charges back in with a shoulder thrust that slumps her to the mat. He rolls backwards and rushes back in with a running knee to the face before quickly dragging her out of the corner and going for the pin. The referee drops down to count the pin but Sage kicks out before the count can even start! Zodiac quickly gets back up but stomps on her a few times before changing his attention to Bianca.
CHARLES HUDSON: Zodiac is not giving either of them a moment's rest!
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Should he? The name of the game is to win, he is putting in the work to make sure he achieves that goal.
Zodiac sees Bianca back to her feet and the two rush and meet in the middle of the ring before they start trading punches as the crowd comes to life! Zodiac begins to feed off this energy and starts to endure the strikes he's taking and throwing them back twice as hard now which begin to stagger her backwards into the ropes. He grabs her wrist and shoots her off to the other side and charges out to meet Lowry in the middle with a rolling wheel kick that connects directly with her forehead and it drops her dead center in the middle of the ring! He rushes back to his feet and delivers a knee drop directly across her forehead, getting back up and following up with a quick leg drop across the throat. He gets up and grabs Lowry by the hair, dragging her back up and tucking her head under his arm before lifting her up and dropping her with a brainbuster! Zodiac floats over into the pin as the ref drops down to count the pin...1...2--Kickout!! Lowry throws her shoulder up and Zodiac rolls over onto his back before sitting up. He gets back to his feet and grabs her by the hair before Reed jumps him from behind!
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Bianca means business!!
Zodiac and Lowry both drop to the ground and Lowry rolls out as Reed begins stomping away on Zodiac before she pulls him up to his feet. Reed runs back towards the opposite set of ropes and bounces off them to gain momentum as Zodiac meets her in the middle with a pump kick that leaves her stunned! He follows it up with a kick to the midsection, a rising knee and a rolling elbow to spin Reed around backwards before he hooks both of her arms behind her and lifts her up and over for a tiger suplex that drops her directly on the back of her head and neck unprotected!! He gets back to his feet as Reed falls backwards and is left lying prone on the mat.
He walks over towards Reed, taking heavy breaths as he does so as that last onslaught early took the wind out of him. He grabs her by the hair and wraps his arm around her head and his inside leg around her inside leg before dropping backwards with a leg sweep ddt that plants Reed on the top of her head! He rolls her over and hooks the outside leg as the referee drops down to count the pin...1...2--Kickout!! Reed throws her shoulder up as Zodiac sits up out of the pin and clutches his head.
CHARLES HUDSON: Zodiac looks hurt.
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Do we have concussion protocol?
Zodiac gets back up to his feet and grabs her by the hair, pulling her back up before dumping her through the ropes and to the outside before he rolls out of the ring but he goes right past her to grab Lowry by the hair and drag her up before whipping her into the barricade, he follows up by rolling her back into the ring. He follows up by climbing onto the apron and then up onto the top rope as he waits for Lowry to get back to her feet. She manages to get back to her feet, only to turn around into a flying elbow that takes them both crashing to the mat as the crowd comes alive!
Zodiac uses the adrenaline he has coursing through him to grab Lowry and pick her back up and scoop her up onto his shoulder, but she begins to kick her legs and gets down behind him! Lowry grabs Zodiac around the waist and delivers a huge german suplex that sends him spilling out of the ring!
Zodiac manages to get back to his feet and rolls back into the ring just in time to break up whatever Reed had planned and clobber her down to the canvas with strikes! He turns his attention to Lowry and pulls her back upright before delivering a forearm, a back elbow, and a spinning back fist that leaves her stunned. He grabs her by the head and throws her over the top and crashes onto the apron and then down to the floor! He quickly turns his attention back to Reed who is using the nearby corner to get back up to a vertical base, but as soon as she does, Zodiac comes charging in with a huge leaping back elbow that rocks her and Zodiac tosses her out from the corner. He quickly springboards up onto the middle rope before jumping off and twisting himself in mid-air to connect with a huge kick to the side of Reed's head with his Pain Killer enziguri! Reed drops to the mat and Zodiac wastes no time in attempting to make a cover as he rolls her over and hooks the outside leg and the referee drops down to count the pinfall attempt…
MCKAYLA LEWIS: So close!!
Sage Lowry comes out of nowhere and delivers a massive punt to the side of Zodiac's head and breaks the pin! She rolls him off of Bianca Reed and pushes him out of the ring.
Sage rolls out after Zodiac and continues her assault as the referee tells her to get the action back into the ring and plays along, grabbing him by the head and pulling him up before rolling him back into the ring. Zodiac senses the change in environment and knows it's either now or never, so he musters everything he has and charges straight towards Sage as she and Zodiac both go spilling right back out of the ring! Zodiac however, now surging with adrenaline, drags Lowry back to her feet before shoving her backwards to create distance and following up with a spear into the steps!!
CHARLES HUDSON: Such an unforgiving collision!
Both competitors collapse but Zodiac seems to be far from finished as he picks her up once again. The referee admonishes Zodiac this time and he nods in acknowledgement, looks at Lowry and then back to the ref before he shrugs and grabs her by the waist from the side and launches her over his head directly onto the stairs with a side belly to back suplex onto her head and neck!!
Zodiac rolls back in the ring and sets his sights on Bianca, who is ready for him as she rushes him but he manages to sidestep her at the last second and send her into the corner torso first before she stumbles backwards. Zodiac takes advantage of this and runs up behind her, jumps and grabs her around the head to spike her with a running bulldog! He grabs Bianca by the hair and pulls her up once again before laying in a series of forearms strikes to the face and jaw, then delivers a series of knee lifts to the midsection that doubles Reed over before he grabs her in a flatliner clutch.
He quickly bends her backwards and then violently spins her around as the two drop to the canvas, with Zodiac spiking Reed onto her face and head with a spinning reverse sto! He rolls her over and pulls her as far away from the ropes as he can towards the center before picking her up by the head, pulling her into a reverse ddt clutch and then dropping backwards into a dragon sleeper before wrapping his legs around her midsection for leverage as her locks in his Into The Void submission!
CHARLES HUDSON: He has it locked in!
The referee checks on Bianca, waiting for a tap, snap or nap.
MCKAYLA LEWIS: It's tight! Reed isn't getting out of that!
Bianca's hand slaps rapidly signaling that she has tapped out. The referee pops up and signals for the bell.
GRAHAM STEVENS: Your winner by pin fall and advancing in the World Television Grand Prix is…ROBERT—ZODIAC!
CHARLES HUDSON: He’s a former World Television Champion and regarded as the most violent person in Mainstream Wrestling for a reason!

BACKSTAGE... MCKAYLA LEWIS: Let’s go to the back where Samantha Kinsley is standing by with Team Madness, Alexandria Monroe and Echo Layne!
SAMANTHA KINSLEY: Welcome welcome, Team Madness. Former champions, longest reigning, once undefeated. Welcome, Echo Layne & Alex Monroe.
ECHO & ALEX: Clap for your…. (Echo and Alex looked at each other) Clap for your soon to be United States Champion of the world, Alex! And your soon to be Grand Prix winner, Echo!
Echo and Alex laughed and giggled loudly and twirled around and did a few annoying poses with each other.
SAMANTHA KINSLEY: First you have to defeat Biggs, whom I might add has been on quite a roll lately.
ALEX MONROE: Screw, Biggs and the horse he rode in on. It's obvious, he doesn't think I can beat him? Because I'm small? Let me tell you, it's the little ones you have to worry about. (Alex winked) I'm going to do what I said, I'm going to slap him into next year and use his book in my fireplace to make s'mores.
ECHO LAYNE: Awh, but Alex. I like him. But, I want you to destroy him, just like I'm going to handle the Situation known as Bobby and Dayna. You two had your time, it's my time, it's Alex's time. It's our time to cause Madness, the Reign of Madness is just beginning.
ALEX MONROE: Watch us, follow us - copy us, be like us. But, we're coming for everything Mainstream has to offer and we truly do not care who gets in the way.
ECHO LAYNE: It's going to be amazing! Oh, shoot, I need to warn Jason!
Echo smiled and skipped off.
SAMANTHA KINSLEY: Well, good luck ladies.
Alex looked at Samantha before she took off after Echo.

The bell rings and this World Television Grand Prix begins! Caroline Clarke gets a few speedy strikes in as the bell rings but misses on an elbow when Lex dodges. He slips behind her and she turns around into a springboard knee that drives her back. She stays on her feet but begs off. Collins ignores the request and catches her in a headlock only to be sent off and taken down with a surprising bodyslam. Collins comes back with a drop toe hold and goes to work on her arm with a knee drop into the elbow. Caroline switches and tries taking him down with a back elbow, but he catches her arm and twists it behind her back, shoving her into the ropes. He follows her in and nails a stiff shoulderblock before taking her down with a backdrop driver. As soon as they hit the canvas, Caroline scissors her legs around him and rolls Collins over, pummeling him with a Thesz press before he bucks her off and rolls out to the floor.
Meanwhile on the outside a speedy lariat from Michel Flynn knocks Collins flush with the retaining wall, the two start an absolute slugfest on the floor that's clearly favoring Flynn despite the boxing background of Collins. He hip-tosses Lex onto the floor, ramming his face into the steps in the process. The crowd lets out a collective groan as he falls back, caught by Flynn and dumped back into the ring. It appears that Caroline Clarke and Michel Flynn are working together in this match.
Collins fights off a backdrop and gets a floatover headscissors back in and stomps away on Caroline. She nails an ugly but effective drop toe hold that Collins kinda eats on the bottom rope. Caroline gets a neckbreaker and drops for the pinfall, getting a surprising two-count! Back on their feet, Collins goes for a charge, but Caroline lowers the bridge and dumps him to the floor. Collins weakly sends Caroline into the apron, limping slightly from the bad landing and then hits a tornado bulldog off the apron. Collins tries a splash, but Caroline rolls out of the way and gets back into the ring. As soon as Collins rolls in, she nails him with a stunning roundhouse kick and then follows up with a chin lock!
Michel Flynn dives forward and rams her into the turnbuckle, breaking the hold. He gets back up and charges with a head of steam, but Caroline comes back with a flapjack. Caroline taunts to thunderous booing from the crowd before stomping a mudhole in Flynn. Back up, Collins nails a wicked uppercut and then charges in— Caroline catches him and sends Collins into the ropes with a stun gun. Collins eats an elbow drop across the face but rolls away to avoid the second one, leaving Caroline to crash and burn.
Collins staggers up, right into a kick to the face that has him staggering back. Flynn stays on him, systematically pummeling him until Collins gets off a lucky elbow strike that creates enough space to lock Flynn into a sleeper. Flynn jacks his jaw and sends him into the ropes. He misses an elbow on the rebound when Collins dives but connects with a lunging tackle that turns into a Thesz press!
Colls rolls to a knee and to his surprise walks right into a lock up with the rising Clarke. Collins flings hef into the corner, following him in with a hard spear. He eats a wild elbow to the face in the process before locking his arms around Flynn's middle, taking him over with a belly to back suplex. He bridges for the pin. NO! Flynn's foot is on the bottom rope and the official waves it off! Collins immediately goes back to working on that same arm that just caught him in the face, catching him for a hammerlock back suplex that Flynn immediately kicks out of. More cranking on the elbow leads to a surfboard but Michael Flynn slips out again and rolls out of the ring to take a breather. Collins makes his way back to his feet, getting a huge pop from the crowd as he trips up Flynn on the return dive between the ropes.
Lex Collins, unceremoniously tossing him under the ropes. He follows him in, immediately rolling in and locking him into a belly to back wristlock with neck submission. Lex tries like hell to break free, but it just isn't happening as Flynn cinches the hold in tighter. After what seems like an eternity, Collins manages to grab the bottom rope and he gets a break, staggering up almost immediately although he weaves like a punch-drunk boxer. This time Flynn moves in, looking for a finish as he hoists up Collins who looks positively out of it. Suddenly, Collins explodes to life, and slams a flurry of punches into Flynn, driving him back before connecting with that stiff right hook he calls Bricks. Flynn staggers back into the corner, dazed and Collins nails a kick to the solar plexus, driving the wind from Flynn's lungs, and then as he's falling, hits another flawless springboard knee to the temple before catching him with the bulldog – SYSTEMATIC BREAKDOWN 2.0! Collins drops for 1…2…BREAK!
Caroline Clarke pulls Lex Collins off of Michel Flynn. Collins is in disbelief but he whiffs on a springboard knee after Caroline hooks the top rope. Caroline goes for THE FALLEN STARLET and HITS IT! She drops for the cover, but she doesn't hook the leg quickly enough and Collins kicks out at two and a half! Caroline is clearly frustrated as she goes for a vertical suplex but Collins slides out the back door, nailing her in the back of the head with a hard elbow strike. Collins goes for the tornado bulldog again but Caroline counters to a back suplex mid-move. Caroline goes for the finish again but Collins counters to the ‘Ad Hominem’ headlock driver and hooks both legs for the 1…2…3!
GRAHAM STEVENS: Your winner by pin fall and advancing in the World Television Grand Prix is…LEX COLLINS!
CHARLES HUDSON: What a comeback by Caroline Clarke!
MCKAYLA LEWIS: She falls short here tonight as Lex Collins powers his way to the next round.
CHARLES HUDSON: Michel Flynn is a former Six Person Tag Team Champion over in UWL with Caroline’s long time tag team partner and friend Dayna Barrett.

BACKSTAGE... Without a match, Jason Cashe was found sitting backstage in a locker room that probably wasn't his own. A comb in hand as he runs it through his bearded face. There was a sandwich on the bench next to him.
JOSSLYNN SPENCER: Are you going to finish that?
Looking at what she meant, Cashe almost forgot about the sandwich. He had jacked it from Bryan Ford earlier after he had first arrived.
JASON CASHE: Nope, all yours!
Just as Josslynn sits down on the bench and grabs the sandwich, the door bursts open and in storms Echo Layne. She looks.. Distraught. Breathing as if she just ran a marathon.
JASON CASHE: Trouble with the microwave again dear Sis?
ECHO LAYNE: F… you.. I ran.. Need to… tell you.. Mother..
She was gasping for air. Really, her cardio seemed to be in question at this point but Cashe had been smiling until that last key word was said.
JASON CASHE: What about her? Has she died yet?
ECHO LAYNE: No.. Here! She is here!!
Jumping up from his chair, Cashe was big eyed and looked like he got jumped scared and was losing color. Josslynn snickered as she bit into the sandwich.
JASON CASHE: Say Huh?! Here as in, in Atlanta or here as in…
ECHO LAYNE: In the building! She had to use the restroom and I hauled butt to get here before she could! She is right around the corn--
MOMMA CASHE: Where is that stupid ass son of mine?
Entering the locker room, Cashe was seeing someone who had never shown up for a show before. Someone who had nothing good to say about him. His Mother. Seeing him, Momma Cashe scoffed at the sight of Jason and laid her eyes on Josslynn who had a cheek full of sandwich.
MOMMA CASHE: So this is her?
ECHO LAYNE: I'm.. gonna go find Alex…
JASON CASHE: Wait!
His call to his Sister did nothing as she left in a hurry. Momma Cashe liked Echo but she knew how bad the relationship between him and his Mother was and didn't want to be there for this episode. Josslynn swallowed the mouthful of food and swiped her teeth with her tongue before standing up to officially introduce herself.
JOSSLYNN SPENCER: Hi! I'm Jossly--
MOMMA CASHE: I know who you are, girl.. And you!
Turning to Jason, his Mother approaches him. He was only halfway sure that she didn't have a gun on her but that was debatable. She snatches him by the right ear and yanks his head down. Seeing his tattoos covering parts of his face and the entire dome and neck. She had seen enough of him on twitter to know he was covered in ink.
MOMMA CASHE: You look real stupid, you know that?
JASON CASHE: What are you doing here Ma?
MOMMA CASHE: Someone sent me an invitation. Were you even planning to come see me? You come to Georgia and don't even come see your Mother? I birthed that big ass head.. I had to lower the grade on suitors because you did so much damage!
JASON CASHE: That's gross.. Wait, who invited you? I sure didn't!
MOMMA CASHE: Diggs? Figg? I don't remember his name, short, elf looking asshole if you ask me but he said you were in trouble..
She looks over at Josslynn and then back to Jason, nudging her head in Joss's direction.
MOMMA CASHE: Is she pregnant?
Both Cashe and Josslynn gasped.
JASON CASHE: Noo! The fuuc--
MOMMA CASHE: You didn't get married did you? I swear if you got hitched and didn't tell me.. We're family boy!
Cashe stares at the camera, a nod to Echo getting married twice and not informing Cashe beforehand both times. Because 'family' counts for what to people anymore, at least in his world.
JASON CASHE: Nope, not married either. I wouldn't waste my time or energy like that Ma..
JOSSLYNN SPENCER: Excuse me?
JASON CASHE: I don't mean it like that.. IF I was gonna get married, you'd be the only choice.
MOMMA CASHE: Oh so it's like that?! Do you love her?
Both Mom and Josslynn were staring holes into him awaiting his response. He was not a fan of this whole situation. He knew who to blame.
JASON CASHE: I… Ummm.. What time is it? Crap, I have a match! I gotta go!!
JOSSLYNN SPENCER: But you don't hav--
Cashe kisses Josslynn on the forehead before he leaves in a hurry.
MOMMA CASHE: I suppose I can stay and watch him wrestle..
JOSSLYNN SPENCER: Oh no, he isn't even booked tonight.
MOMMA CASHE: He just left? That son of a bitc--
There was an awkward silence for a few seconds. Josslynn broke the silence with a question as the scene begins to fade out.
JOSSLYNN SPENCER: So.. I hear that you have a gun.. Can I see it?

★★★ BILLY DANIELSON ★★★ vs ★★★ ELI BUCHANAN ★★★
The bell rings and tonight’s Main Event is now underway! Eli Buchanan locks up with Billy Danielson. He transitions into a side headlock and cranks down on the Danielson’s head and messes up his hair. Buchanan quickly spins and turns it into a leg trip, sending Danielson down on the mat face first. Buchanan grabs him in a rear waist lock, rolls Danielson over with a bridge and goes for a cover for 1…2…KICKOUT!
Both men pop back up fairly quickly but it’s Buchanan who ducks a wild clothesline from Danielson. He grabs Danielson in a rear waist lock. Danielson attempts to block and goes for a back elbow. Buchanan ducks and hits Danielson with a Northern Lights suplex. He rolls through, pulls Danielson to his feet, grabs the rear waist lock and hits a German suplex. Buchanan rolls through to his feet one more time, locks Danielson in a full nelson and hits a dragon suplex with a bridge for 1…2…KICKOUT!
Danielson is holding the back of his neck while Buchanan rolls over to a knee and pushes himself up. He pulls Danielson up and the two are now trading some stiff forearm strikes. It looks like Danielson is going to get the upperhand, but Eli boots Billy in the knee, making him buckle. Buchanan grabs Danielson by the back of the head and throws him over the top rope. Danielson lands on his feet on the apron, but here comes Eli with a bicycle boot to send Billy to the floor. Eli steps out to the apron, and stalks Billy as he gets back up. Eli charges, looking for a canonball senton, BUT BILLY CATCHES HIM!!! Eli hit a little to high, and Danielson is able to hit him with a Powerbomb onto the apron! Eli stumbles off the powerbomb, and Billy catches him with a Chicago Blackout! Eli falls down to the floor!
…1! …2! …3! …4! …5! …6! …7!
Billy exits the ring and rolls him back in under the ropes. Meanwhile Eli gets to a knee before Billy climbs back in the ring. Danielson charges at Eli, looking to just run him over as he gets up, but Eli catches him with a jumping knee strike! Billy is staggered as Eli stumbles backwards into the ropes and comes back with a roaring elbow! Danielson looks out on his feet, so Eli spins him around and plants Danielson right in the cener of the ring with a vicious german suplex. Buchanan hypes up the fans, as he heads to the nearest corner. Eli bounces on the turnbuckles, waiting for his moment, and charges with THUNDERSTRU-NO!!! Billy catches him with a powerslam. Eli tries to get back to his feet, but Billy pops up with a THINNING THE HERD. Danielson looks for the pin, but Eli with great ring awareness is able to roll towards the ropes.
Eli drops to the floor at ringside taking a moment to catch his breath and composure. Danielson goes after him, he lifts him but a knee to the midsection creates an opening for Buchanan! He rams Danielson back first into the ring post before rolling him back under the ropes. Buchanan circles the ring post and gets up onto the apron on the far side. He takes his time stepping thru the ropes and even some backs away as Danielson charges. He backs into the ropes, pulls the top one down and ducks as Danielson goes tumbling out to the arena floor. Buchanan stomps on the mat to get the crowd to start clapping along. He bounces off the ropes on the opposite side of the ring, charges back as fast as he can and flies over the top rope with a plancha, catching Danielson on the way down. Buchanan rolls to his feet and yells. The crowd starts cheering. Buchanan grabs Danielson, tosses him back into the ring. He grabs his wife, gives her a kiss and goes to follow after his Danielson.
Buchanan gets to his feet slowly. Danielson swings wildly at him but Buchanan blocks with a kick to the arm. Danielson spins around, only to get caught with a leaping knee strike to the face. Buchanan follows up with a roaring elbow. Danielson staggers and Buchanan hits a release German suplex. Danielson rolls through to his knees. Buchanan backs to the far corner and rushes in to hit Thunderstruck! He goes for the cover but Danielson rolls back to the floor!
…1! …2! …3! …4! …5! …6! …7! …8! …9! …10! ….11!
Buchanan waits patiently as Danielson rolls back under the rope looking to break the count but Buchanan grabs the top rope and begins stomping the GOAT repeatedly. He grabs him by the head and neck and pulls him up to his feet and whips Danielson face first into the turnbuckle. He follows him in and hits a knee strike to the back of the head. Buchanan quickly follows up with a snap dragon suplex. Danielson rolls on to his back and stares up at the lights. Bruchanan points to the top turnbuckle. Charlotte and the whole crowd cheers as he leaps to the top rope with a single bound. He’s cut off just in time by Danielson as he sits on the top turnbuckle.
He bends over just enough to headbutt Billy! Eli jumps down, picks Billy up and places him onto the top turnbuckle. Eli slips out to the apron and climbs up behind Billy. Danielson throws a wild elbow that lands square in the diaphragm. Eli buckles over on the top rope, and Billy hooks his head for an AVALNCHE CUTT-NO!!! Eli holds onto the turnbuckle, so Billy just backflops on his own. Eli catches his breath, looking for a frog splash . Danielson groggily pushes to his feet and dives to the corner, knocking Eli's leg off the turnbuckle. He falls chest against the top buckle as Billy begins to climb up in front of him. Pulling Eli up and setting him up with a Suplex, Billy Danielson muscles Eli up over the ropes as they fall and crash into the ring!
MCKAYLA LEWIS: Superplex! Billy just bounced himself and Eli off the top turnbuckle!
CHARLES HUDSON: These two have a long storied history and it is ALWAYS enjoyable to see them clash!
As the two lay sprawled out on their backs. The fans burst into an explosion of cheer as everyone turns to the entrance.
CHARLES HUDSON: It's Cashe! What is he doing out here?!
MCKAYLA LEWIS: It's obvious he is coming to enjoy this match as a fan of both competitors..
CHARLES HUDSON: Since when? Eli, maybe but a fan of Billy?
As he gets to ringside, Cashe doesn't have his eyes on the ring. They aren't on the fans either. He is watching the floor in front of him as he rounds the ring and begins to walk up the steel stairs but he stops. Turning, Cashe heads towards the ring announcer and shoves Graham Stevens out of the way before grabbing the folding chair he was sitting in. Cashe folds the chair closed as he heads back to the steel stairs.
MCKAYLA LEWIS: See? He wants a ringside seat to this Main Event Match! Who can blame him?
On the apron, Cashe ducks and enters the ring. The referee tries to get in front of him but doesn't dare try to stop him. Billy Danielson begins to get to his feet and doesn't see Cashe cocking back with the chair ready to strike. As Billy stands tall, he instantly dives out of the way as Eli Buchanan rises and the overswing of the steel chair comes crashing down over his head!
CHARLES HUDSON: So much for wanting to watch the match…
Billy, now on the outside of the ring, was watching Cashe with big eyes as he backed away. Inside the ring, Eli was laid out like he was trying to make a snow angel. Cashe drops the chair and moves to the ropes closest to the entrance as he and Billy trade a few mouthed words.
MCKAYLA LEWIS: I think Cashe meant to hit Billy there..
CHARLES HUDSON: One could argue that after both Billy and Eli showed up last show after Cashe's match that he wasn't caring who took the chair.
MCKAYLA LEWIS: I don't know..Jason Chase claims to be besties with Eli Buchanan, but we all knew that.
