Re: JLA Puroresu
We open with footage of last weeks LiveWire with Minoru Tanaka being eliminated by Jushin Liger his fellow CTU member. We then cut to Tanaka keeping Liger’s enemy The Great Sasuke in the match by catching the wrestler before his feet touch the ground. Jushin Liger however wins the match to the shock of everyone. The closing footage is of Jushin Liger looking towards Minoru Tanaka from behind his mask.
Styles- Hello and welcome to JLA LiveWire! We are coming off an explosive show which saw what we think was Minoru Tanaka turning his back on the CTU and Jushin Liger!
Jerry Lawler- Well we don’t know that for sure Styles!
Styles- What do you mean King! Tanaka intentionally tried to cost his leader the battle royal match. If that isn’t turning your back on someone I don’t know what it!
Suddenly “CTU Revolution” hits the airwaves causing the fans to suddenly react with jeers and boos. The fans are clearly not happy to see Jushin Liger, Black Tiger and Matt Morgan as they make there way to the squared circle. Clearly there is no Minoru Tanaka with the group as Jushin Liger takes the mic as his fellow allies stand behind him.
Jushin Liger- Last week, we saw the greatest act of betrayal from who we thought was not only are ally, but are friend.
The fellow CTU members shake there heads as Black Tiger slaps his heart.
Jushin Liger- Minoru Tanaka, turned his back on the people who made him!
The fans begin to jeer Liger before he speaks again.
Jushin Liger- Minoru wouldn’t even be with the JLA if it wasn’t for us! Wouldn’t he boys!
Black Tiger and Matt Morgan shake there heads.
Jushin Liger- Now you might think I’d be annoyed that the man we made and helped bring up would try to cost me the JLA Jr Heavyweight Title! But I’m not! Seriously, I’m a kind and generous man along with Tiger and Matt here!
The fans begin to boo with might at Liger’s sarcastic remark.
Jushin Liger- You don’t believe me! Okay just to show you that we… the Control Terrorism Unit are kind and considerate men. We will gladly take back Minoru Tanaka!
Jerry Lawler- I told you Jushin Liger was a nice guy Styles!
Jushin Liger- Come on Tanaka come out here, we won’t bite! Well I can’t say that for Black Tiger here! Ha ha ha!
Minoru Tanaka’s music hits the airwaves causing the fans to cheer with might. Tanaka looks cautious as he gradually makes his way to the ring.
Jushin Liger- Come on Minoru, we’ve not got all day!
Minoru climbs into the ring before taking a mic from the ring announcer. He keeps his eyes on all three of the CTU members before he begins to talk.
Minoru Tanaka- What is your game Jushin?
Jushin Liger- I don’t play games Minoru…You know that! I’m here to offer you an invitation back to the Control Terrorism Unit.
Minoru Tanaka- And why the hell would I want to do that?
Liger looks back at Black Tiger and Matt Morgan before speaking yet again.
Jushin Liger- Good point Tanaka! I mean we didn’t really treat you like royalty, and we did kind of take you for granted. Now that I think about it, I think I would have left if I was you. But me, Matt Morgan and Black Tiger are willing to forgive what happened last week. We know you didn’t mean to catch Sasuke hence keeping him in the match. You just got caught out, and you felt……..Scared!
Minoru Tanaka- I fear no one!
Jushin Liger- Okay, okay! But think deep Minoru, what the hell are you going to do now that you are on your own. When you where with CTU, you had three men who had your back, three men who would do anything to make sure you picked up the win. Now you’re on your own, in the big wide world of JLA. Just think about it Tanaka, when your with the CTU you can get anything you want.
Styles- Oh yeah!
Minoru Tanaka- And you really don’t care about what happened last week?
Jushin Liger- Water under the bridge!
Tanaka begins to contemplate what to do next! Whilst Liger waits along with Morgan and Black Tiger! Suddenly Inoki’s music hits the airwaves to a huge amount of applaud. Inoki the JLA LiveWire commissioner stands by the titan tron with a mic in hand.
Antonio Inoki- Tanaka, I can’t believe that you are actually thinking about joining these men again. You did the hard part, you made the first step! Now these men are trying to haul you back into the boat. Think about it! Why would Liger and his cronies care about having you in there group! Well in my humble opinion, it’s because they want you on there side instead of the other way around! They fear you Tanaka, they fear you!
Jushin Liger and his fellow CTU members begin to shout towards Inoki whilst pointing there fingers towards him clearly disagreeing with the LiveWire commissioner.
Antonio Inoki- Buy hey, it’s not my decision! So this is what I’m going to do, tonight we will have a match, it will be Jushin Liger and Black Tiger teaming up to take on…….Minoru Tanaka and……………….The Great Sasuke!
The Japanese fans rise tot here feet popping greatly whilst Inoki smiles.
Antonio Inoki- I believe by the end of the night we will see whose side you truly on. I hope you choose wisely Tanaka!
At this Inoki turns his back and walks behind the curtain leaving the Control Terrorism Unit and Minoru Tanaka in the ring!
Jushin Liger- Don’t listen to him Minoru, you know the CTU is the place to be. People would kill to be part of this group; at G1 we will hold the Jr Heavyweight Title! And guess who will be my first opponent, you Tanaka. For eliminating you on last weeks Royal Rumble! Just think about that……Just think about holding the Jr Heavyweight gold with the CTU behind you all the way!
Styles- Minoru Tanaka can’t actually be buying this can he?
Jerry Lawler- Liger has seen the errors of his ways Styles and he wants to make up for it. He’s offering Tanaka a second chance without any repercussions.
Styles- No repercussions, that’s a good one King!
Styles- Well tonight we have the second Battle Royal to decide who will take on Jushin Liger at the G1 Climax for the Jr Heavyweight Title. But also we will see Minoru Tanaka teaming up with The Great Sasuke to take on Jushin Liger and Black Tiger of the CTU.
Jerry Lawler- Well I don’t think that match will last long Styles. Minoru Tanaka is going to turn his back on Sasuke and make right his fault last week. It’s that simple!
Styles- I don’t think sure King, I believe Tanaka will see that he made the right decision last week and keep out stay strong against the allure of the CTU.
Jerry Lawler- He’d be a foolish man if he did Styles.
Styles- It doesn’t matter King for now, because we have are first match of the night with Tanahashi taking on Abismo Negro!
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Abismo Negro
Match Summary: Negro takes the match by the scruff of the neck by connecting with an early spinning heel kick to the chin followed by a standing dropkick to the chest. Tanahashi takes the blows and is eventually hit with a double underhook back breaker. The pin is made but Tanahashi manages to kick out on one. Negro remains in control of the match eventually pulling off the Powerbomb into the prawn hold pin which reaches the referee’s count of 2. Tanahashi finally gets back into the match as he hits the inzigure kick to the back of the head followed by a belly to belly overhead suplex.
Tanahashi completes the snap suplex soon after as his opponent arches his back in pain before being pinned to the floor. The referees count stops on one as Tanahashi soon follows up with a European uppercut followed by a wrist clutch Exploder suplex. This reaches a two count before Negro manages to kick out! Abismo gets his foot back into the match by reversing a toe kick into a dragon whip takedown. Negro connects with a toe kick of his own before completing the spinning neck breaker followed by the springboard moonsault which gains him another close three count. The match finishes with Negro looking for the La Magistral Cradle but Tanahashi turns his opponent mid way pinning his shoulders to the floor. The referee drops to the floor and makes the three count to the shock of the fans.
Winner – Hiroshi Tanahashi – Via Pinfall
Styles- Another big win for Hiroshi Tanahashi, he must be really thinking about that U-30 Title now.
Jerry Lawler- Of course Styles, when your putting in performances like that every week you can’t help but think about gold.
We go backstage with Antonio Inoki who is in his office behind his desk he begins to talk as the fans cheers die down for the commissioner.
Antonio Inoki- Ladies and Gentleman, as you all know the G1 Climax is only two weeks away. The huge tournament will decide the first JLA World Champion, could it be Chris Benoit or Jun Akiyama? Nobody knows! But one man who will compete in the G1 is know the world over his name is…………..Kenta Kobashi! Next week Kobashi will have his first match in JLA against………. Jun Akiyama! So make sure to join us.
Styles- What an announcement!
Jerry Lawler- Kenta Kobashi will have his first JLA LiveWire match against none other that the protégé Jun Akiyama!
Styles- Well Kobashi will be one of the favourites to win the G1 but Jun Akiyama has pulled off some upsets in recent weeks against Kensuke Sasaki!
Jerry Lawler- Well Sasaki isn’t too pleased with not being able to compete in the G1 Climax after losing to Akiyama, let’s take a look from last week.
We see footage of Jun Akiyama being attacked by Kensuke Sasaki after Sasaki looked to holds out his hand for Jun to shake. We then go backstage with Mitsui Yamada and Kensuke Sasaki!
Mitsui Yamada – Kensuke Sasaki, last week we saw you blatantly attack Jun Akiyama….
Kensuke Sasaki- Mitsui, Jun Akiyama has no place in the G1 Climax! He beat me on what I can only say was a fluke. Now next week he has a match with Kobashi, then we’ll see what Akiyama is all about. I’ve beaten Kobashi twice before in the past, just like I beat Akiyama last week. In two weeks time when the G1 take place, we’ll see Akiyama go out in the first round, cementing my argument for why I should have been in the tournament! Me…Not Jun Akiyama! I’m Kensuke Sasaki for Christ’s sake!
At this Sasaki storms off in a huff pushing down stands and camera equipment along the way.
Styles- Well Kensuke Sasaki still hasn’t forgiven Akiyama for costing his place in the G1 Tournament.
Jerry Lawler- He has a right to be angry Styles!
King of the Hill

The Great Muta raises to his feet to confront Psicosis but the Luchador walks to the apron holding his hands up like he is innocent of all charges. This gives Juventud an opening as he rolls his opponent up into a small package which gets him a close two count.
Both men rise but it’s Juvy who strikes first with a hurricarana causing is opponent to flip violently forward to his back.

We go backstage with Minoru Tanaka who paces up and down the locker room. Suddenly Super Delfin comes into view and stops Tanaka is stride.
Super Delfin- Tanaka, your not really thinking about going back to the CTU are you?
Minoru Tanaka- Maybe! I don’t know, what the hell am I gonna do on my own. I’ve always been with Liger…
Super Delfin- You can’t be serious! The CTU have held you back Tanaka, it’s been seven days! Just think about where you can go without having to lick Liger’s ass every day.
Minoru Tanaka pushes Delfin causing him to stumble to his rear. He shoots up and squares up to Tanaka! Both men begin to stare into each others eyes, the tension builds between the two as the fists clench. Suddenly Tanaka turns in a huff and walks away leaving Delfin to watch him leave.
Styles- Well Delfin is talking common sense, Minoru Tanaka just doesn’t want to listen.
Jerry Lawler- Are you kidding me Styles, the CTU is the most powerful faction in the JLA why the hell wouldn’t you want to be apart of it?
Styles- Maybe because it’s leader only cares about one thing and it’s not the Control Terrorism Unit.
Jerry Lawler- That’s your opinion Styles lets begin are next contest before you burst a vein!

Suddenly he springs off his feet and connects with the hurricarana causing Liger to flip violently forward onto his back. Finally Sasuke makes the tag in his partner Minoru Tanaka causing a pop from the crowd.
He slowly makes it into the ring as Liger is on his knees checking his vision. He suddenly realises Minoru in front of him and looks up to see what he will do. Tanaka clenches his fist and holds it up into the air as Black Tiger takes a chair from the announcers table and makes his way into the ring. The Great Sasuke reacts well and spears Black Tiger to the floor before he can do any damage causing a huge pop from the mammoth crowd.
