Re: Impact Wrestling on Destination America
Impact Wrestling - 16th January - Live! from the sold-out Manhatten Centre, New York
- A brand new opening video shows the company's top stars posing and entering to up-beat music, ending on Bobby Roode celebrating with the title.
- A short video package recaps last week's main event where, after a closely contestes title match between Roode and Aries, El Patron forced a no-contest via shock interference, laying out both competitors and the referee.
- Low Ki enters to a strong reaction, mostly boos with scattered cheers.
Josh Matthews - The fans unsure what to think about Low Ki's unprovoked attack on Tigre Uno last week.
- Homicide enters to a good pop.
Homicide vs Low Ki
Homicide and Low Ki lock up. Some classic X Division wrestling as they chain wrestle for the first good portion of the match, trading strikes, running attacks and minor suplexes and slams. After they trade arm drags, they dropkick at the same time then get back up to their feet and stare at each other, to a pop.
Taz - It's hard to see what might break the deadlock here, I mean, what an even match!
Low Ki swiftly sweeps Homicide's legs then kicks into his right leg. The fans boo.
Josh Matthews - That just might do it.
Low Ki targets the right leg viciously. Homicide nearly gets momentum a few times, only to be stopped suddenly by Low Ki's cutting strike offense. Ki has to be pushed back by the referee a few times for continued strikes after Homicide reaches the ropes. This happens for a three times in a row, Ki refusing to stop hacking away at Homicide's leg.
Josh Matthews - This is vulgur! Low Ki just not letting up.
Taz - Why whould he? That's what makes a good champion.
Josh Matthews - It's a rope break forgodsake!
Ki rushes back to Homicide who leans, standing, against the ropes. Homicide quickly lifts Ki up and over the top rope. Ki lands on the apron...and Homicide knocks him off with a big right hand. Ki crashes to the floor. Homicide favors the leg as the fans chant "Homicide!". Homicide nods his head to the beat of their chants, bounces off the ropes...somersault suicide dive!!!
He sends Ki crashing into the barricade as he lands on his feet and the fans pop. Homicide only stays standing for one short second before his leg buckles under his momentum. He favors his leg again for a moment. Another "Homicide!" chant wills Homicide back up to his feet. He rolls Ki back into the ring and climbs to the apron. He starts to climb the turnbuckle but stops with a foot on the middle and top rope each. He wobbles and favours his leg.
Taz - Ki's work has paid off! I'm not sure he can get to the top!
Homicide gets up to the top rope and wobbles again. Ki capitalizes on the time taken for Homicide to make the climb by leaping to his feet and high-kicking Homicide's right leg causing him to get crotched. The fans boo as Ki pulls Homicide off the turnbuckle and onto his shoulders...Ki Krusher!!
He hooks the leg; ...1...2...3!
- The fans continue to boo, as they had been since the Ki Krusher. Ki has his arm raised and is handed his title. After a few moments his music stops and he looks down at Homicide. He stomps Homicide's bad leg!
Josh Matthews - This is sick! Stop!
- Ki continues to good heat before lifting Homicide up and onto his shoulders...
...Tigre Uno's music hits to a fairly good pop. He sprints down to the ring and Ki drops Homicide. Uno and Ki trade punches. Ki goes for a spinning heel kick but Uno catches it, throws his leg down and snaps off a hurricanranna!
Ki stumbles back up to his feet and Uno dropkicks him, causing him to tumble through the ropes and out of the ring.
Uno's theme hits to another fairly good pop. He stands up on the top turnbuckle and points down at Ki who backs up the ramp.
Josh Matthews - Tigre Uno coming to the aid of Homicide! We'll have more X Division action later on, but after the break we'll hear from MLK live!
- Low Ki walks backstage looking sweaty and fatigued. A camera catches up to him. Low Ki turns to it to speak.
Low Ki - You want me to explain my actions from last week. I know, a lot of people do. You just didn't notice that I already explained them.
Last week I said I would restore the high level of competition that the X Division was born with. That's all that I did. These new guys don't have the bite, the hunger or the ferocity that we did back in the day. I'm here to pull that out of them, to show that if they don't have the motivation to fight and to win, then they shouldn't be here.
And if I have to ruffle a few feathers and break a couple of bones to put the spark back into the X Division: So be it.
- Cut to ringside. MVP's theme come's on and MLK walk down the ramp to a lot of heat. They swagger into the ring and MVP is handed a mike. The fans continue to boo loudly.
MVP - Save your opinion for later, my business is more important. *Louder Boos!!*
Fine. If you insist on pointlessly continuing then I will just have to ignore you, for you are irrelevant. The man I wish to speak to is Teddy Long. You see, last week, Teddy Long forced myself, Kenny King and Lashley to compete in an unscheduled match, without any warning whatsoever. *"You can't wrestle!"*
I, on behalf of MLK, seek an apology and a promise that such a wrong-doing will not occur again.
- MVP waits for a second as the fans continue to chant "You can't wrestle!".
Teddy Long's theme hits to a big pop. He enters to the top of the ramp, dances a little and then gets ready to speak.
Teddy Long - Ladies, gentleman, playas!
- Kenny King takes the mike from MVP.
Kenny King - Hey! Adress us, not them. They no longer exist. *Booo!*
Teddy Long - Nope. If they didn't exist I wouldn't be able to hear them booing you, now would I? *Pop!*
- King paces the ring looking pissed.
Teddy Long - In fact, Kenny, your career wouldn't exist if it wasn't for these fans! So how about you show a little respect. *POP!*
King is furious.
Teddy Long - And you say you want an apology? Don't bother holding your breath. I won't apologize for you losing your match last week. That's why your out here; to make excuses. *Pop!*
But don't worry, I'm gonna give you a chance to rectify your mistakes. And I'm gonna do it by putting you in a tag team match!!! *POP!*
- Teddy walks off as the fans cheer. Kenny King is fuming in the ring but MVP calms him down.
Mr Anderson's music comes on and he walks out to the ramp to a decent pop. Gunner's theme follows to another decent pop. Eric Young's comes on next to a slightly better pop. The fans start to chant along to his theme "EY!EY!" as the three men walk down to the ring to take on MLK.
Taz - Another unscheduled match? That can't be fair!
Josh Matthews - They're wrestlers Taz, so ; surprise, surprise, they're gonna wrestle!
MLK will take on Mr Anderson, Gunner and "Show Time" Eric Young, live on Destination America after the break!
Mr Anderson, Gunner and Eric Young vs MLK
Josh Matthews - During the break "hashtag tag team match" started trending world-wide for the second week in a row. If you want to discuss Impact on twitter, in general, we encourage you to use the hashtag "Impact Wrestling".
King and Lashley have an argument over who should start in. King graciously lets Lashley start. Gunner and Lashley square up to each other and then lock up. They are completely even until Lashley knees Gunner in the stomach. He then pulls him into MLK's corner. He deals out shoulder thrusts. King tags himself in. Lashley is annoyed. MVP calms the situation down.
King lays into Gunner's head with right hands. He says "This is how you do it!" to Lashley when Gunner pushes him back. King stumbles back then charges at Gunner, right into a boot. Gunner runs and clotheslines King then tags in Mr Anderson who gets a small pop for coming in the ring.
Anderson takes control of King. For the next while, Anderson, Young and Gunner hit some key moves on King, not letting him tag, for some close two counts. Gunner, tags Gunner, hits a powerslam on King. Gunner goes to the top rope. The fans cheer for the potential Diving Headbutt.
MVP rushes in and pulls Kenny King back towards their corner. He doesn't get far before Young runs into the ring to intercept...SPEAR! Young was speared out of nowhere! Gunner waits on the top turnbuckle as Anderson enters the ring and trades punches with Lashley. MVP pulls King back to their corner, gets out onto the apron and tags him self in.
MVP then rushes towards Anderson to help out Lashley...diving shoulder block!!! Gunner took MVP out with a massive diving shoulder block. He goes goes for the pin; ...1...2....No! Lashley ducked Anderson's punch then axehandle'd the cover. When Lashley turns back round Anderson goes for the Mike Check...Lashley pushes him backwards and forces him over the top rope and out of the ring!
MVP rolls back to his corner as Gunner and Lashley square up to each other. The crowd pops as they begin to trade stiff punches. Gunner starts to win out when Lashley levels him with one big punch. Gunner gets back up and Lashley kicks him in the gut and hits a suplex. Lashley tags himself in on MVP, putting one foot on the apron.
Taz - The Destroyer tags himself back in, I think he's ready to finish this one off.
He then paces the ring like a predator, waiting for Gunner to get to his feet. Gunner stages to his feet...tag! King tags in, jumps to the top turnbuckle...diving somersault neck breaker!
Josh Matthews - What a move from Kenny King! But Lashley doesn't look to pleased.
Lashley pulls King's arm and starts shouting at him. King shouts back. Lashley pushes King lightly. King delivers a fierce right hand to the head of Lashley! *Oooooohh!!!*
King lays in three more right hands and then s super kick, sending Lashley over the top rope and crashing down to the floor.
A big mixed reaction from the crowd as King looks down at Lashley's crumpled body.
King turns around, small package; ...1..2...3!!! Gunner got the win!!!
- MVP rushes back into the ring and asks what the hell happened as King shouts and points outside to where Lashley is. MVP seems shocked and unsure what to make of things. King paces the ring a little as MVP stares at him dumb-founded...
...SPEAR!!!! LASHLEY SPEARS KING! The crowd gives a big pop as Lashley stares down at King's mangled corpse.
MVP looks on in complete shock as Lashley walks away and up the aisle. The fans continue to cheer as the show fades out.
- A limo pulls up outside the arena. The chauffuer opens the door and El Patron walks out in a classy black suit.
Josh Matthews - There he is! The man who shook Impact Wrestling to its very core last week! He'll face "The Greatest Man Alive" Austin Aries in our main event.
- We cut to the commentators upon return.
Josh Matthews - Before the break we saw rifts in MLK turn into a slug-fest which ended with Lashley spearing the life out of King.
Taz - Not to mention; the man who shocked wrestling fans all over the world in last week's main event is here!
Josh Matthews - That's all tonight, but on February first, Impact Wrestling will return to Pay-Per-View. And we already know that Revolution will defend their tag title gold against The Wolves and that Kurt Angle will finally get the chance to face EC3.
Taz - I can't wait for that one, Josh.
Josh Matthews - But what we can now announce is that Feast or Fired will return at The Last Laugh. Four brief cases will be on offer. You can get either a title shot or a pink slip.
Taz - That match has the potential to make and break careers.
Josh Matthews - The difference this time, is that you must announce that you will cash in for your title shot at least 24 hours in advance.
Taz - Except for the brand new golden case, Josh.
Josh Matthews - That's right. A fifth and sixth case have been added into the equation. The fifth is a golden case which lets you cash in for a title opportunity on the world champion at any time!
Taz - Imagine the power that comes with that case!
Josh Matthews - You could do a lot of things with that type of power, Taz. The sixth and final case is a second tag team title shot case. That means your partner has to be whoever pulls down the other case, it could be anyone!
- Revolution's theme comes on and they make their way down to the ring to good heat.
The Menagerie enter next to a very small pop.
The Great Sanada and Manik w/ Revolution vs The Menagerie w/ Crazzy Steve
Sanada and Knuxx start in. Knuxx goes to lock up, when Sanada slides through his legs. Knuxx turns around and Sanada kicks him in the gut. Sanada drops Knuxx with a super kick. He tags in Manik. Manik hits a few running attacks on Knuxx, who just stumbles around the ring, unable to get any offense.
Manik hits a springboard back elbow, droping Knuxx. He tags Sanada who goes to the top turnbuckle...Moonsault!
He makes the cover; ...1...2...3!!
- Revolution's theme comes on to a little heat.
Taz - An immpressive win in, what was that? Just over a minute?
- The music stops as Storm orders hims men to continue the attack. Khoya and Abyss attack Freak and Steve who were checking on Knuxx in the middle of the ring. They stomp them down to some heat. James Storm grabs a mike.
James Storm - This is a warning! An example! Wolves, you felt the pain that we bring to naysayers of the revolution. But just in-case our message wasn't clear, let us show you again!
- Abyss and Khoya double chokeslam The Freak to some heat. Sanada continues the attack on Steve. Manik looks on disapprovingly. Khoya exits the ring, retrieves a table and throws it in. Abyss sets it up next to the corner and puts Steve on top of it. Sanada and Khoya push Freak and Knuxx out of the ring with their feet.
James Storm - Manik, show The Wolves what happens to oppressors. Show them how we deal with threats.
- Manik stands, shakes his head then appeals to Storm.
James Storm - Manik! Remember what you were taught. To achieve our goals, to bring justice in the future, some crimes must be committed in the present.
- Manik shakes his head.
Josh Matthews - Manik seems unwilling to join in with this unprovoked beating.
- A tense pause as Storm swuares up to Manik and stares down at him.
James Storm - Sanada! Show Manik what must be done.
- Sanada goes to the top turnbuckle...Diving Moonsault...Sanada crashes through the table!!! *Pop!*
Manik pulled Steve off the table.
Revolution are stunned for a moment. Storm commands Abyss and Khoya to take out Manik and they start to walk towards him...Manik readies himself for a fight as the crowd continues to make noise...Steve gets up to his feet and stands with Manik to a pop...
...The Wolves' theme hits!! The crowd cheers as they sprint down to the ring...The Wolves charge at Khoya and Abyss...Revolution retreat!
Storm pulls Sanada out of the ring as Abyss and Khoya evade the Wolves.
Josh Matthews - The numbers game finally against Revolution! They run, scared!
- The fans cheer as The Wolves' theme comes back on and they take to the turnbuckles to celebrate. Steve checks on his team-mates.
Manik leans against the ropes and stares down at his now former faction. Storm points and shouts at Manik and The Wolves as Revolution back-pedal up the ramp.
- Austin Aries is with Jeremy Borash in the interview area. Aries looks pissed off.
Jeremy Borash - My guest at this time; Austin Aries. Now Austin, what do you have to say about the shocking events that took place in last week's main event?
Austin Aries - I have to say; Alberto El Patron, last week you made the biggest mistake of your life by holding me back from my destiny, and that is the Impact Wrestling World Title. I don't know your your game, I don't know your motives, I just know that I get my revenge tonight in the main event.
Jeremy Borash - So you'll go on the record to say that you would have defeated Bobby Roode, had Alberto El Patron not interfered.
Austin Aries - Of course I will. Make no mistake, "The Greatest Man Alive" Austin Aries would be world champion right now if it wasn't the invasion that took place. Alberto El Patron is the one accountable for the lack of gold in this outfit and tonight I punish him for his crimes!
- Aries walks off looking focussed.
Jeremy Borash - That was Austin Aries. Stay tuned for the main event where he'll take on Impact Wrestling's newest superstar: Alberto El Patron.
- Kurt Angle's theme hits and he enters to the ring to a big pop. He plays to the crowd for a bit before..."E!...C!...3!!!", ECIII's theme comes on and he swaggers down to the ring with Tyrus.
Josh Matthews - After the break, Kurt Angle will take on Tyrus, live on Destination America!
Kurt Angle vs Tyrus w/ECIII
The bell rings. They lock up a few times and Kurt Angle lands minor suplexes and slams to wee pops. Tyrus gets frustrated and next time, just before they lock up, kicks Angle in the gut then clubs him on the back until he collapses to the mat. Tyrus gets decent heat as he tosses Angle around the ring for a bit. He hits a scoop powerslam, a body slam and then a running splash.
Taz - You gotta wonder whether Angle can compete with someone as physical as Tyrus. I mean, he can't be quite a hundred percent since his return.
Tyrus pins for a short two count. He lifts Angle to his feet and punches him n the head. Angle returns the favor. They trade and Angle starts to win out. Tyrus drops Angle with a head-butt. He locks in a chin lock and keeps Angle grounded...until Angle slips out and hits a German suplex! He holds the grip...another German suplex...and another German suplex!
Angle lets go, gets fully to his feet and pulls down the top straps of his gear and then waits for Tyrus to get back to his feet. The fans pop.
ECIII gets up onto the apron. Angle runs and forearms him off. Angle looks down at ECIII for a second before turning back to Tyrus...Clothesline!
The fans boo as Tyrus levels Angle. Angle seems out of it when Tyrus goes to pick him up...Angle hangs onto Tyrus' leg...Ankle Lock!! He locks in the Ankle Lock and Tyrus has nowhere to go... *Cheer!*
ECIII rushes into the ring and Angle drops him with a right hand. As ECIII rolls out one side of the ring, Tyrus rolls out to the other, getting to safety.
Angle looks annoyed. He follows Tyrus out. When he gets out, Tyrus quickly grabs him by the head and smacks him head-first into the ringpost.
Tyrus retreats into the ring, getting heat as Angle favors his head on the outside. Angle gets back into the ring at a 6 count. Tyrus pulls him to his feet and then hits a T-Bone suplex.
Tyrus makes the cover; ...1...2.No!

Josh Matthews - We've seen this before. If you don't tpa out he'll turn it into a Chokeslam.

The crowd cheer as Angle makes the cover; ...1...2...3!!!
- The crowd pops as his theme comes on. ECIII rushes into the ring and Angle rolls out. He favors his neck a bit then laughs and points at ECIII. He slaps some of the fans hands on the way up the ramp as ECIII looks on, livid.
Josh Matthews - Angle silences any critics by once again showing that there's no ring rust whatsoever.
Taz - I have to agree with you there; Angle in classic form right there.
- Bobby Roode is with Jeremy Borash in the interview area.
Jeremy Borash - My guest at this time; the world heavyweight champion, Bobby Roode!
Now, Bobby, earlier on I was with Austin Aries and he stated that, had it not been for Alberto El Patron's interference, he would have beaten you and become the new world champion. Would you dispute this?
Bobby Roode - JB, the mere fact that you have to ask that is an injustice. Myself, Austin Aries and the wrestling world was robbed of the conclusion to that match. And now my title reign is in disrepute.
No. There would not have been a new champion and in due course I will prove that I am a deserving champion.
Jeremy Borash - Strong words there and I'm sure that both Austin Aries and Alberto El Patron will be looking to put you to the test on that. But, I must ask. When Alberto's music came on, you were on the top turnbuckle. Were you about to attempt a 450 Splash?
Bobby Roode - I've been asked that, as much as anything else, all week. Austin pushed me to my limits and I needed to shake up the game. I needed something that would finish him off. So, yes, that's what I had in mind.
Jeremy Borash - Wow! Talk about putting your body on the line. One last question; will you be watching the main event tonight?
Bobby Roode - You're damn right I will.
- Roode walks off.
- Chris Sabin's theme comes on and he enters to a good amount of heat. Rockstar Spud enters to a big pop.
Rockstar Spud vs Chris Sabin
A "Rockstar Spud!" chant starts up as the tow men lock up. Spud grabs Sabin's arm and twists it, Sabin cart-wheels out of his grip and slaps Spud in the face to big heat. He laughs before Spud kicks him in the shin. Sabin doubles over and Spud hits a sunset flip;...1...2..No! Sabin kicks out and knees Spud in the stomach.
He takes control of the match, using basic slams and snap suplexes. Spud tries to gain momentum as the crowd wills him into the match but Sabin always puts an end to him before he can get any offense.
Sabin gets cocky, taunts the fans (to big heat) and goes out onto the apron. Sabin springboards in...dropkick! Spud dropkicks him in mid-air!
The crowd cheers and then claps a beat as Spud gets to his feet. Sabin stumbles up and Spud downs him with a crossbody, the same happens a second and third time. Sabin gets up again and Spud hits a tornado DDT!
He hooks the leg;...1...2...Kickout!

He stumbles to his feet as Sabin gets to his...kick in the gut...he lifts him up...Cradle Shock;...1...2...3!!!
- The fans give great heat for Sabin who laughs as the referee raises his arm.
Samoa Joe's theme comes on to a big pop. He comes down to the ring with a mike as the fans chant "Joe's gonna kill ya!".
Samoa Joe - Chris. We go back a long way. We were both at the heart of Impact Wrestling as it grew into what it is today.
We're two of the most decorated X Division stars ever. *Pop!*
When you returned, I thought it was a good thing for the division, because whether I've liked you or hated you, you've always been one of the best athletes in the industry. *Pop*
But after you showed me the disrespect you did last week in your "grand return"...I don't know whether returning to Impact Wrestling is a good thing for this company...but it's certainly a very bad thing for you. *"Joe's gonna kill ya!"*
Lets cut to the chase; I want you one on one at The Last Laugh so that I can pay back that same disrespect. *Pop!*
Chris Sabin - Joe...no!
- Sabin goes to walk away with a smug smile when Joe turns him around and kicks him in the crotch! *Pop!*
Samoa Joe - I thought you might say that. That's why I asked Teddy Long for the match earlier tonight. See you February first! *Pop!*
- Joe's music comes on and he poses for the fans. Sabin favours his crotch on the floor, looking up at Joe in horror.
Josh Matthews - Another match added to the packed card for February first! It'll be Samoa Joe one on one with Chris Sabin! Stay tuned for our main event after the break, live on Destination America.
- Graphics advertise Xplosion this Saturday night. The main event is cited as The Hardys vs Bragnus. Mark Andrews' debut is also teased.
- Alberto El Patron's theme comes on and he enters, stopping at the top of the ramp to bath in the mass of heat. He then runs down and slides into the ring before posing in its center, putting his arms out, causing the heat to grow louder. He gets handed a mike.
Alberto El Patron - Before I compete, in the main event, I want to tell you the reason that I came to Impact Wrestling. I want to tell you why-

Austin Aries vs Alberto El Patron
Patron gets back in the ring. Aries starts towards him but the ref pushes him back. The bell rings and Aries charges at Patron. He throws multiple fists at Patron's head before Patron can evade by putting himself between the middle and top ropes. The fans cheer for Austin's enthusiasm but boo as Patron takes his time to get back in the match.
Patron uses the ropes to evade Aries a few more times as Aries grows more and more furious. Finally, when he lets go of the ropes, Aries throws a clothesline which Patron ducks. Patron chops Aries multiple times. Patron takes control with some chops, stomps and submission holds which focus on Aries' left arm. The crowd boo Patron's long series of slow offensive maneuvers. Patron smirks at them.
Josh Matthews - As much as this crowd might not like it, Alberto El Patron has very successfully turned Aries' aggression against him.
Patron has Aries in a sleeper hold...The fans start to clap Aries along as he makes his way to his feet...he elbows Patron in the gut...elbow...elbow...German Suplex!
Patron let go of the hold and German suplexed Aries hard! *BOO!*
Patron smirks...small package by Aries!...1...2...Patron kicks out and both men get to their feet...kick in the gut...Aries lifts him up...BRAINBUSTER!!! *POP!!!*
Josh Matthews - Aries just dropped Aries on his head with that Brainbuster out of nowhere!
Taz - But can he capitalise?
After a couple of seconds, Aries turns to Patron and drapes his arm over his chest;...1...2..No! *"1...2...Ooooh!"*
Josh Matthews - Stay tuned for the continuation of out main event!
Aries and Patron are just getting to their feet, Patron a little quicker. They trade punches slowly to "Oooh"s and "Aaah"s.
Josh Matthews - This whole match has been all El Patron, but after that Brainbuster, things have evened up a little.
They trade harder and Aries hits three right hands in a row...he seems to be taking control...Patron kicks Aries in the arm! Aries drops to his knees, favoring the arm, Patron super kicks! But Aries ducks down...jumps to his feet...and drops Patron with a discus elbow smash!

But Patron got his knees up!!! *OOOOOHHHH!*
Aries holds his body in pain whilst on his knees for a moment, when Patron pulls him by the arm...and locks in an Arm-Bar!!! *BOOOO!*
AS the fans recognize Alberto's old finisher, Aries sells the arm big, shouting as Patron applies as much pressure as possible. He reaches towards the ropes...but can't make it...
Josh Matthews - Alberto El Patron has been working on that arm all match and now he might just capitalize on it!
...he pulls Patron as hard as he can towards the ropes...
...Aries grabs the ropes! *Cheer!*
The ref counts to four before Patron lets go. He tries to pull Aries back into the hold but Aries pushes him away...Patron moves back towards him...discus elbow Smash!!! *Pop!*
Patron stumbles back...bounces off the ropes...stumbles back towards Aries...Enziguiri!!!
A mix of shock and massive heat as Aries falls flat on his face and Patron instantly rolls him over and hooks both legs for the cover;...1...2...3!!!
- Patron's theme comes on to massive heat form the fans. He gets up and smirks at the fans, despite selling great fatigue, whilst the referee raises his arm. He poses on a few of the turnbuckles to more big heat.
Then he is handed a mike.
Alberto El Patron - Before I was so rudely interrupted by the self-proclaimed "Greatest Man Alive"...
- Patron looks down at Aries, laid out on the mat, and laughs to big heat.
Alberto Del Rio - ...I was going to tell you why I'm here in Impact Wrestling... *BOO!*
- Patron laughs a little more as "Shut the Fuck Up!" Chants grow almost too loud for him to be heard. He speaks a little louder.
Alberto El Patron - I came to Impact Wrestling to become Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion. But unlike the ignorant, plethora of professional wrestlers who came here for the same reason; I came here with a guarantee.
- The chants die down as they wait for Patron to speak.
Alberto El Patron - That shut you up, didn't it! You all want to hear how the people's champion, Bobby Roode's days are numbered. You want to know how Alberto El Patron knows that he will assume Roode's position at the top of the ladder. *Massive Heat*
I know, because when I signed my contract I was guaranteed a world title shot. *Big Heat*
And I also know that that tile shot comes on February first...at The Last Laugh! *Big Mixed Reaction*
- Patron's music comes on and he takes back up to the turnbuckle to pose for big heat.
His music is then cut out by Bobby Roode's. Roode steps out onto the ramp.
Josh Matthews - Bobby Roode coming out to show his opponent on February first, he isn't scared! Tune in next week to Impact Live for the next step on the road to The Last Laugh!
The two men stare off from afar as the show fades out...
END OF SHOW
