The scene fades in to last week's recaps.
The scene fades back to a capacity crowd. The temporary general manager, Matt Hardy is in the center of the ring.
The cameras swing towards the ring, Dustin Hart, who was walking down the ramp during the commentators' introduction, is pacing the ring in an angry nature. He's holding a microphone in his hand and a blue sticky note, similar to the note that was seen last week at the end of the day that Hart read and without revealing to the camera, got really vexed with.
Dustin Hart : Last week, I received this.
Hart holds up the sticky note to the camera but the crowd stays silent.
Dustin Hart : I checked the cameras to see who put this nonsense on my door and something interesting popped up. Right when the show started and those two masked men that abducted Tazz last week, the cameras were cut off. Does anyone know what this means?
The crowd stays silent.
Dustin Hart : I promise if those two masked men trespassed and abducted Tazz during the show, they will pay! I checked Apex Road 2 for any evidence. Nothing. Nothing at all. These guys are really playing with fire. I'm checking each and every camera, the parking light cameras, the hallway cameras, even the goddamn bathroom cameras until I find a connection and the part that I can't connect is who these men are. I have no way of contacting them until All Out Assault like they said. These morons are messing with my promotion and messing with my show!
The crowd cheers and chants “PC”.
Dustin Hart : Even if they plopped Tazz back here without a evidence path to trace, I would drop this investigation but whatever they want, I hope they know this isn't the way to ask this. I represent this company and if I let this criminals basically, get what they want then what example am I setting?
The crowd gives a small pop.
Dustin Hart : Now onto this sticky note. I don't know whether those two masked men allowed me to address this to the public but I don't care. The sticky note says that they will bring Tazz to All Out Assault during their negotiation if I...
The crowd wants to know the stipulation.
Dustin Hart : If I, put on a chicken suit and dance in the middle of this ring.
Later That Night
Dustin Hart walks down the ramp with a chicken suit and a chicken head. Before entering the ring, he puts on this vibrant yellow and feathery chicken suit and head with large anime-like blue eyes. He walks up the steel steps and enters the ring. He was handed a microphone.
Dustin Hart : I hope these two masked men and Tazz pay me for this. I'm making a fool of myself on national television. Put on the music before our air time cuts off.
A comical tune is playing and Dustin Hart bends his arms like a chicken and dances around the ring. He then bends over as if he was pecking food of the ground. He almost trips over the surplus feathers on his feet. The crowd is laughing as Hart dances around the ring in his chicken costume. He continues on pecking the crowd and shaking his “tail”. Dustin Hart hangs his head in shame and wiggles his tail. He then falls to the floor. Hart grabs a microphone.
Dustin : Stop the music! I'm done! I'm done!
Dustin Hart takes off the head roughly and takes off the suit, stumbling in the process. KENTA is then seen on the stage in a chair. Hart catches his presence in the corner of his eye.
KENTA : Bravo. Encore! Encore!
Hart : You think your funny huh? Well lucky for you, I'm not general manager but I can book matches. You shouldn't talk KENTA your weak. Your whole team is weak. Brodus Clay smashed Yoshi Tatsu. Alex Shelley smashed Goto. I can destroy you, that isn't a threat nor a promise. It's a fact.
The crowd cheers as Matt Hardy walks past KENTA, who promptly stands.
Matt Hardy : I have it from here. KENTA next week, since you want to run your mouth, talk trash to a authority that can put their hands on you.
KENTA : Who would that be?
Hardy : Me.
The crowd cheers as Hardy extends his hand.
Matt : Next week! No disqualification! Shake my damn hand!
The crowd cheers immensely as KENTA locks Hardy in a GTS and then connects it! KENTA then shakes Hardy's hand.
Matt Hardy : What an Apex Road last week!
The crowd cheers loudly.
Matt Hardy : I learned some things. I was taught certain lessons. I even found out things that people can only dream of. I got to place some really awesome matches. I directed a television division bout. But most of all, I succeeded in entertaining you by giving you a show that only the Mattitude can do!
The crowd cheers significantly.
Matt Hardy : Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.
The crowd stays silent, fearing the obvious.
Matt Hardy : I recently have gotten word from the board of directors before walking down that ramp and walking into the ring that the board...wants to rotate the positions of the temporary general manager.
The crowd reacts loudly.
Matt Hardy : Hence the reason they call it, temporary. Nonetheless, my last order from the Pinnacle Combat Board of Directors was to announce the new general manager.
The crowd cheers a small amount.
Matt Hardy : Ladies and gentlemen, your new temporary general manager!
Within moments, Paul London walks onto the stage wearing your standard tuxedo attire: A beige-ish tuxedo jacket with matching tuxedo pants, a white tuxedo shirt and white shoes. He stares at Matt Hardy, as he is clapping for London. The crowd pops loud, some even giving Paul London a standing ovation. Paul London marches down the ramp swiftly, noticeably elated for being chosen one to be the general manager. He looks at the crowd and poses for the crowd at ringside. London then runs up the steel steps and enters the ring. Matt Hardy looks Paul London then extends his hand. Paul looks at his hand and looks at the crowd. Paul London shakes Hardy's hand slowly then takes his mic fast.
Paul London : Ladies and gentlemen, your new temporary general manager...Paul London!
The crowd cheers loud, significantly louder and longer than when Matt Hardy announced.
Matt Hardy : Its not as easy at it looks Londo-
Paul London : -and as my first order as the main authority of Apex Road, the main event of Matt Hardy and KENTA will be a No Holds Barred match!
The crowd cheers huge as the lights dim noticeably. The spotlight shines on the east section of the crowd as KENTA, along with Goto and Yoshi Tatsu appear out of the crowd. Goto is the first to hop over the crowd barrier. He walks over to the officials standing near ringside and grabs three microphones. Yoshi Tatsu quickly walks up the ramp and bends the ropes, opening them for KENTA who enters the ring momentarily. Goto passes two microphones to Yoshi Tatsu and Tatsu gives one to KENTA who snatches the mic.
KENTA : Who the hell do you think you both are?
Paul London : I think I am the general manager.
Matt Hardy : I'm Matt. Matt Hardy!
KENTA : The general manager position should be given to one of the members of the prestigious and dangerous, Shinjiketo!
The crowd boos as KENTA and the two pose for the crowd.
Yoshi Tatsu : Tonight, I will be facing someone that I will be facing again at All Out Assault. His name is Chris Sabin.
The crowd cheers for Sabin's mention.
Tatsu : I will be defeating Sabin easily, and yes Hardy and London...without KENTA's help.
Hardy : I don't buy it.
Yoshi Tatsu smirks before walks behind KENTA. The crowd pops as Goto stands in front of KENTA to talk to Matt Hardy and Paul London.
Goto : My name is Goto.
The crowd boos enormously.
Goto : At all out assault, I made it a promise to snap a bone. It could be in match with you London. Or I could wait until the main event for you Matt Hardy.
Both, Hardy and London look at each other before laughing at Goto. KENTA then steps up to stare at each of them.
KENTA : Hardy. This isn't over. Not by long shot.
Each of them exit the ring quickly and jump over the crowd barrier except for Yoshi Tatsu since his match . As the commotion begins to settle, the cameras swing over to the commentators, Todd Grisham and Amy Dumas, as Chris Sabin makes his entrance with his friend and tag-team partner, Alex Shelley.
Todd Grisham : Welcome to Pinnacle Combat: Apex Road! We are getting closer to All Out Assault and I'd like to take the time to also welcome my colleague for the show, former champion, Amy Dumas! How are you tonight Dumas?
Amy Dumas : I'm doing well Todd. Actually better because of the three amazing matches coming up! The background for this match is that Alex Shelley faced Goto in a winning effort so Goto's tag team partner, Yoshi Tatsu will face Alex Shelley's partner Chris Sabin. But before we get into the three matches set up for this awesome night, lets get this match started.
Yoshi Tatsu vs Chris Sabin
Tatsu and Sabin circle each other. After Goto's defeat, Yoshi Tatsu looks more focused than he ever has in any of his matches ever. Sabin decides to take the initiative and lock up with Tatsu, quickly getting the advantage. He Irish Whips Tatsu to the ropes and upon return Yoshi avoids a clothesline and instead of bouncing off the ropes again, he goes to the top rope, turns around and dives off for a crossbody. Yoshi goes for a quick pin. 1...2...Kick out! Yoshi Tatsu then quickly locks in the cloverleaf! Walking towards the center, Sabin tries to escape but Tatsu has the hold locked in. Tatsu wrenches his legs as Alex Shelley starts up a “Let's go Sabin” chant. Yoshi is then seen struggling as Sabin is tryinng his hardest to escape the hold and with the added crowd to support him, he is showing progress. Within moments, Chris Sabin breaks out of the cloverleaf and stands up. The crowd pops loudly as Sabin raises one hand in the corner while Tatsu walks over to Chris Sabin and knife-edge chops him three times before Irish whipping him into the opposite corner but Sabin runs up the ropes as Tatsu is behind him and basically flips over Tatsu. When Yoshi Tatsu turns around, Sabin pushes Tatsu in a corner and keeps him there with some punches. He takes some steps back and connects a running arched big boot to Yoshi Tatsu which the crowd pops loudly for. Tatsu is now grounded as Sabin goes to pin Yoshi Tatsu. 1...2...Foot on the rope! Goto put Yoshi Tatsu's foot on the rope but the referee did not notice! Alex Shelley goes on the apron and yells at the referee. With the referee's distraction, Goto slides in the ring and connects a punch but he has something on his hand. As the camera zooms in, it appears to be brass knuckles! Sabin goes down as the referee sees Tatsu pinning Sabin for the second time. 1...2...Kick out from Chris Sabin! No one in this entire arena is more surprised then Goto and Yoshi Tatsu! Sabin gets picked up and thrown to the ropes and upon return, Yoshi Tatsu connects a rolling snapmare and then a shoot kick to Sabin. Sabin coughs and lies on the floor with his arms wrapped around his chest. Yoshi Tatsu then goes to pick up Chris Sabin again but Sabin rolls out of the ring and onto the apron. Yoshi Tatsu then looks at Goto and they nod at each other. Yoshi Tatsu then rushes at Sabin and spears him into the crowd barrier. Goto then slaps Alex Shelley before kicking him in the gut and connecting a wrist-clutch Olympic Slam which he calls the Go To Heaven! Shelley is out as Yoshi Tatsu goes to the top rope. Yoshi poses for the crowd before diving off and connecting a top-rope spinning heel kick which nearly cracks Shelley's skull open! 1! Everyone is grounded. 2! 3! 4! 5! 6! Shelley shows signs of life. 7! 8! Shelley slides Chris Sabin into the ring. 9! Yoshi Tatsu slides into the ring at 9 and a half! Both of these guys are grounded. Tatsu crawls over to Chris Sabin and gets an arm over him. 1...2...Kick out!
Yoshi Tatsu is shocked! The crowd is shocked! People watching all over may be shocked! Yoshi Tatsu is most likely wondering what he has to do to keep his opponent down for the three count. Chris Sabin rolls out onto the apron and uses it to pull himself up. He looks at the crowd and poses as Yoshi Tatsu stands up. Chris Sabin jumps on the ropes and connects a springboard tornado DDT! Chris Sabin is now laid out. Tatsu is laid out and bloodied! Chris Sabin crawls over to Tatsu but Yoshi Tatsu is crawling to the turnbuckle. Tatsu pulls himself up and goes over to Chris Sabin who is on one knee. Tatsu then pokes Sabin's eye and the refere pushes Tatsu away and reprimands him for breaching the rules. The referee then turns his attention to Sabin who cannot see and Sabin reacts by sending the referee out of the ring! The referee has no choice but to ring the bell in favor of Yoshi Tatsu!
Winner by Disqualification : Yoshi Tatsu
Chris Sabin hears the bell ring and sees the referee on the floor. Obviously seeing that Tatsu was not the man going over the ropes, he gets extremely frustrated as Yoshi is already out of the ring, most likely halfway through the crowd. Sabin kicks the turnbuckle then lies his head on the turnbuckle.
Todd Grisham : Horrible upset for Chris Sabin but nonetheless, onwards with the show. One of the matches scheduled for tonight is the main event, Matt Hardy will face KENTA in a no holds barred match, according to the general manager of tonight, Paul London.
Amy Dumas : Also tonight, Matt Hardy combined two steaming feuds into one explosive tag match! John Morrison and Carlito will face Adam Cole and Brad Maddox.
Todd Grisham : Yes and up next, Chris Rayne vs Joey LeBell. Who knows what match they will be in? These two rookies graduated from Pinnacle Wrestling's development territory. Chris Rayne is also the brother of Miss Gorgeous, also known as Madison Rayne. LeBell is in the television division and Paul London has asked both of these men which number and letter they picked for the crowd. If you may excuse me, I must go find out our match type.
Todd Grisham picks up an index card and walks around ringside.
Todd Grisham : Do we have an N6 in the house?
A person in the back runs down the staircase and approaches Todd. Todd gives the man the index card.
Grisham : Pick one of the three choices.
Man : Easy, A. Parking lot brawl!
Todd : You all heard it folks! Coming up soon, LeBell will face Rayne in a parking lot brawl.
The scene fades Susan Brooke.
Susan Brooke : Hello! Hello! Hello Pinnacle Combat, I am Susan Brooke. My guest tonight is Carlito!
Carlito steps into the shot.
Susan Brooke : Hey Carlito, few questions for you tonight. What is your opinion on John Morrison, your tag team partner for tonight's match?
Carlito : John Morrison? He's ok. A little too cocky but he reminds me of my days back “en mi papa's” promotion. He's just a background guy in this match. I'm coming out this a winner and Morrison isn't preventing this.
Brooke : What is your plans in this match?
Carlito : Susan. I'm going out there and breaking bones. I'm Carlito. I don't need a plan.
Brooke : Final question. Going up against Sin Cara for the North American challenge must be a challenge?
Carlito : Not at all. Sin Cara is quick but “mucho” weak. He's not worth the fight. Watch tonight, this is only half of what I am going to do to Sin Cara.
Carlito walks away as the scene fades to a parking lot brawl. The referee announces that the match begins now.
Chris Rayne w/ Miss Gorgeous vs Joey LeBell

Joey LeBell and Chris Rayne will be facing each other in a parking lot brawl!

John Morrison : Did you see that match out there?
Adam Cole : I sure did. What are you doing here?
John Morrison : I got a sneak look at the index cards and I want to warn you that all three choices are going to destroy you and further prove my point that I will be the inaugural television champion. Not you.

John Morrison : Oh yeah? Well lets see tonight.
John Morrison gets up.
John Morrison : ...and by the way, my locker room is better.
Adam Cole smirks at first before turning worried and catching up with Morrison.

Matt Hardy : The utmost bullsh-t!
The crowd cheers. KENTA stares at Hardy and bumps past him, walking away. Hardy laughs a bit before the scene fading back to Britani Knight in the ring. As Zexuis makes her way down the ramp, the commentators talk.
Todd : These rivalries are getting huge! This is our women's division's match. These two have heat behind them. Zexuis's long time best friend, Pandora was badly hurt last week because of Britani Knight and her arrogance.

Aug 31st, 2012
Amy Dumas : Brad Maddox approached Carlito and these two had fought inside and out of the ring.
