-Elite Wrestling Society-
The debut show.
January 13, 2010
EWS' debut show opens with disturbing images of a backstage worker viciously beaten in the hallway. The company's owner, Paul Heyman is visibly furious and looks down at the worker.
Who the f-... this is unbelievable. I want to know who did this,
and I want to know now.
Heyman shoves an onlooking worker out of the way as he storms off down the corridor. Not the ideal beginning to EWS' debut show.
As we return to the ring, our commentator, Todd Grisham explains that Heyman is furious with what has occurred backstage and is now investigating who is responsible and intends to uncover who the attacker is before the end of the night. Grisham then hypes EWS' first ever televised match as Ron Killings' What's Up excites the crowd as the energetic Killings dances down to the ring accompanied by his tag team partner for the night, Matt Sydal.
The Final Countdown hits as the crowd give a mixed reaction for The Best Wrestler In The World, as he approaches the ring obviously dissatisfied with his partner, Santino Marella.
Match 1 | Ron Killings and Matt Sydal vs. Bryan Danielson and Santino MarellaRon Killings and Matt Sydal work together well as they successfully maintain in control for the majority of the match as Marella foolishly refrains from tagging in Danielson, as if to prove himself to him. Danielson screamed at Marella due to his tactics which triggered the referee to attempt to calm The American Dragon. Marella fell victim to a devastating Corkscrew Scissors-Kick/Shooting Star Press combination however managed to get a foot to the rope. Once Danielson finally received his tag, he unleashed a vicious onslaught to his opponents. Marella was so beaten up from his performance that he lied on the apron. Danielson dominated until he fell victim to numerous attacks from Killings and Sydal, forcing him to scream for a tag, however Marella was too beaten to move. Danielson then fell victim to a Corkscrew Scissors-kick which gained Killings and Sydal the victory.
Winner | Ron Killings and Matt Sydal via Pinfall
Ron Killings and Matt Sydal exit the ring, satisfied with their performance, slapping hands with the fans as they approach the curtains. As Danielson returns to his senses he realizes he looks over to a recovering Santino Marella and explodes. Danielson, once on his feet, sprints towards Marella and dropkicks him through the ropes and to the outside. A vicious beating is on the cards as Danielson snatches a chair from the commentary table and unloads numerous shots to his vulnerable tag team partner. A ballistic Danielson throws Marella into the announce table and chokes him out with a television cord before throwing the television set onto the floor and smashing it. Danielson then snatches a camera out of a cameraman's possession and throws it into the seemingly unconscious Marella.
Bryan Danielson approaches the locker room as he walks down the hallway however he is interrupted by a visibly furious Paul Heyman.
It was you, wasn't it?! I have put a lot
into this promotion and I'm not going to have it screwed up on the first frigging night!
I don't know what the hell you're talking about, I haven't done a thing. I just went out there, got screwed over by a crap tag partner and kicked his fu.. kicked his head in.
Danielson restrains himself from swearing and continues explaining himself to his boss.
I destroy people for a reason and tell them I'm going to do it to their face - I'm not a pussy, I don't do it out of nowhere or from behind, so don't accuse me of doing that crap. If you'd excuse me, I've got to go and get changed and if you want to investigate further into me, have fun wasting your time like a tool.
Danielson continues into the locker room, leaving Heyman confused as to who is responsible for the vicious bashing.
Davey Richards versus Christian Cage versus D'Angelo Dinero is announced as the show's main event.
Jonathan Coachman stands by Teddy Hart backstage with a microphone in his possession. A focused Teddy Hart stares forward as The Coach begins to interview him.
Now, Teddy, this is EWS' first show-
I don't need to be interviewed Jonathan, I don't because I've got nothing to answer to. I have statements to make and that's all that I'll be saying. I won't be answering anything. First thing's first, I respect this promotion, but I'm not going to look directly down the lens of this camera in front of me and lie to the professional wrestling world. Elite Wrestling Society needs another title here and I'll be doing everything my power is capable of to bring that in. Whether it be tomorrow or next year, we will have another championship title in this promotion and I'll be damned if I'm not its first holder. So, Paul Heyman, or anyone else with a position of authority, get out your pen and paper - because you're good at that - and write it down, this promotion needs another championship and it should start its life around Teddy Hart's waist.
And what if-
There's no 'what if' here, Jonathan so I can just cut you off right there. This will happen, there's no other possible outcome therefore a 'what if' isn't needed. I'll even get a damn piece of paper or a World Wrestling Federation plastic belt and wear it around my damn waist because anything around this waist means something. I've got a certain quality that many in this business don't have: passion. I know that this is the best damn business in the world and this company represents that business, so why not have a title representing passion with a damn passionate man wearing that belt?
Well I guess it's only a matter of time.
That's better, don't ask questions, just agree with me, it makes this so much easier. It is
just a matter of time until something happens, trust me. I want a title that represents the little people, the fans that go to the local independent promotions, the guys that risk their lives flipping off 30-foot ladders to the guys landing on their heads night after night. I won't drop this, I'll pursue it and mark my words, Jonathan Coachman, there will be another title in Elite Wrestling Society.
Teddy Hart leaves the screen as the scene closes and we return to ringside. Austin Watson, formally known as Consequences Creed in previous promotions approaches the ring sporting simple patterned shorts rather than his Rocky-esque previously worn in his career. The crowd seem to enjoy his presence as his exciting and enjoyable entrance concludes and he awaits his opponent in the ring. WWE fans would be familiar with his opponent, Armando Estrada approaches the ring with a similar gimmick to what he held in WWE. Still sporting the glasses, he places them on the canvas as he prepares to battle Austin Watson in similar attire.
Match 2 | Austin Watson vs. Armando EstradaAustin Watson was clearly on stride for this match. Unlike his opponent, Estrada just didn't seem to have brought his game. Watson exhibited his exciting moveset throughout the match, including many punching variations which appeared to be one of his areas of strength. Estrada's body strength appeared to give him the upper-hand in the match only momentarily as Watson was simply too good. Watson ended the contest with a CreeDDT.
Winner | Austin Watson via Pinfall
As EWS returns we're taken backstage to the hallways which care covered in spray painted lettering of 'We takin' over!' and words to that effect. The lights in the arena go out and once they return JTG cockily skips to the ring with Ezekiel Jackson following him close behind.
JTG: IT WAS ME!
JTG proclaims to the crowd as he enters the ring accompanied by Ezekiel Jackson.
JTG: It was me! I did it,
I beat up the backstage worker with help from ma' lil' friend right here, Ezekiel Jackson! This is a sign of things to come. We takin' over EWS and there ain't nothin' you can do about it! We're the revolution of 'dis business.
Paul Heyman's music echoes throughout the ring area as JTG looks on unimpressed. The owner of EWS approaches the ring with a microphone in his possession.
So you think you can screw up this night for me, do you?
We ain't screwin' up a thing. I'm provin' a point, we're the revolution of this business. I can turn people to join me; I'm makin' money, I'm winnin' matches and bitches, I got it all, dog.
JTG slides under the ropes and sits on the railing separating the crowd from ringside. He strokes the side of a young attractive girl's face, clearly with her boyfriend.
You want this, don't 'cha baby?
JTG chuckles to himself, regardless of her response he still would have chuckled. He looks at the boyfriend.
Yeah, she wants this, you want to be this. It works on both genders obviously!
JTG chuckles to himself again as Ezekiel Jackson moves closer to the ropes to keep a close eye on the protection of JTG. The attacker of the backstage worker rolls back into the ring to face his furious boss.
I got the JTG effect, bitch. I got it all and there ain't nuttin' anybody can do about it!
I know something I can
do. You're both suspended without pay until further notice. Who's got the money now, bitch?
I'm a nice guy though and everyone's allowed a farewell match and I've got someone just dying to punish you so you won't be walking out of this building - your feet will be in the air after RON KILLINGS
kicks your ass out the door! Next week in your EWS farewell match for now, it'll be you versus Ron Killings, with your man Ezekiel Jackson there banned from ringside!
JTG shakes his head with his eyes wide open in clear disgust.
Uh Uh, that ain't happenin', you can't do that!
I just did, dog.
All that jail time's turned that Ron Killings into a damn snitch, a sell-out, dog! He ain't real!
As EWS heads to a commercial, Ron Killings appears at the top of the entrance ramp, staring down JTG.
EWS cuts backstage where Davey Richards and Christian Cage are seen entering the arena, both intent on walking out of EWS' debut show victorious in the triple threat main event; Cage versus Richards versus Dinero.
D'Angelo Dinero's music plays to a positive reception as The Pope approaches the ring in his usual black vest and pants. With a microphone in hand, Pope enters the ring prepared to address the audience.
Now The Pope
needs to preach to the people and he'll be doing just that. We have one hel-... -heaven of a main event tonight, people. A triple threat with three of the best wrestlers in the world but one of those wrestlers is just a little more holy, a little more smarter, a little more stronger, a little more attractive and quite frankly my people, a little more talented. When the smoke clears The Pope
will be standing tall and stamping his ticket for a shot at that EWS World Heavyweight Championship. There ain't no one better to represent this company and The Pope
thinks he will have proven himself enough with a victory tonight to gain an opportunity for that beautiful gold belt which would look beautiful around his waist. So, The Pope
would like to take this opportunity right now to organize the engraving of his name on the belt. Now if The Pope
is on television he assumes that everyone is watching, so he assumes that the title belt engravers are watching too, now Pope
Davey Richards' theme song interrupts D'Angelo Dinero's request to have his name engraved on the title belt. The one and only Richards stands atop the ramp with his tights on and a t-shirt. Possessing a microphone he begins to walk towards the ring.
Could you shut the hell up?!
Pope is visibly offended at Richards' language.
You come out here acting as if you've already won the match, here's a newsflash: the match is later on tonight in the main event, idiot! The match is the one that's later on where I'm going to pummel that 'gorgeous' face of yours viciously, the same match that will leave you exiting the ring in a stretcher. You've pissed me off twenty minutes before the freaking match, Dinero, it hasn't even started - not a good move. I'll demolish both you and Christian and prove myself to be the dominant force of this company and become its first ever world champion. So why don't you shut up and put your gear on in the locker room instead of playing to the crowd like a kiss-ass bitch!
Dinero: The Pope
cannot help if he is appreciated by his onlookers, he's the whole package and will prove that later tonight. Davey Richards you will fall victim to Pope
, you do not realize who you are speaking to..
Alright, alright, alright, you know what? You keep talking yourself up out here because I'm not a big talker, I let my fists do the talking. Just remember something, 'Pope', actions speak louder than words..
Richards drops his microphone and walks back up the entrance ramp, shaking his head in disapproval of The Pope D'Angelo Dinero.
want you to remember one thing too, Davey Richards. Pope
The audience scream out the latter in sync with Dinero as EWS heads to a break.
Upon the return of EWS Ken Doane and Petey Williams' theme song hit to a negative reception as the tag team approaches the ring for their tag team match-up.
Following Doane and Williams entering the ring, The Briscoes' theme song hits to a popular reception from the audience as Jay and Mark run towards the ring, exhibiting their intensity and mindset for the match.
Match 3 | The Briscoe Brothers vs. Ken Doane and Petey WilliamsDoane and Williams display their ability to mold well as a tag team as they managed to control the dominant tag team in The Briscoes for a lot of the match, not allowing them to break away and really apply some damage to Doane and Williams' hopes of winning. The Briscoes regained an advantage when they nailed their double shoulder block. From there on The Briscoes maintained the momentum and managed to fend off any chance of Doane and Williams regaining control. Towards the end Doane and Williams appeared to almost gain a roll-up victory, however Jay managed to kick out and nail a Jay-Driller before he and his partner finished off their opponents with a springboard doomsday device.
Winners | The Briscoe Brothers via Pinfall
The brothers lean over the ropes after the hard-fought win, allowing themselves to have a breather, however they take advantage of their time as Doane and Williams jump them from behind. A brawl erupts which concludes with The Young Bucks sprinting down to the ring and making the save for The Briscoes. The two teams shake hands as EWS goes to another commercial break.
As EWS returns, Jonathan Coachman stands backstage and approaches a sitting Davey Richards strapping his wrists in preparation for the main event.
Excuse me, Davey, could I ask you a few questions?
Richards looks up unimpressed. The tough Richards rips the end of the tape off that he was strapping and stands up for Coachman.
You seemed to make The Pope
D'Angelo Dinero your target out there tonight, will you be focusing on him especially in the ring later or was all that talk just in the heat of the moment.
Jonathan, when I say something I mean it.
I'm not like all those other guys who go out there making up these ridiculous nicknames for themselves talking themselves up. I'm not a big talker and I believe actions speak louder than words, so me kicking both Dinero and Cage's asses out there tonight is better than any crap someone can say out there on the mic. Also, if you had noticed, I didn't say I'd focus on Dinero, because I only focus on one thing when I'm in that ring; victory and I'll be victorious at the conclusion of this show.
Out of nowhere, Christian Cage appears and face to face with Richards.
So you think you're going to kick both our asses tonight, huh, Davey? I don't even care that you mentioned Dinero to be honest, he can sit backstage with his freaking bible for all I care. It's the fact you said you'd kick my ass
that bothers me.
Really, Christian? Like what I just said, when I say something, I mean it
and believe me, I really meant it now.
For someone who says they don't like talking crap you're sure talking a lot of crap right now. If there's anymore of it in you I'll make sure to kick it out of you in the ring right now and I meant that, Davey. See you out there.
A seething Richards looks on as Christian leaves.
The Pope D'Angelo Dinero's theme song hits and a much more focused Pope approaches the ring compared to before, obviously eager to prove himself in his first match for the company. The animosity between the three competitors of the match is now at its peak and things could turn personal.
Richards is next out with his theme music hitting to heat as he approaches the ring sternly and swiftly, focusing on Dinero and that ring. Dinero stares down Richards as he enters the ring. The referee blocks Richards' path towards Dinero as he can predict what will occur if he doesn't prevent Richards from having an opportunity to attack.
Silence takes over the arena in as the audience anticipates Christian Cage's arrival. His music hits to cheers as Captain Charisma approaches the arena trash-talking his opponents as he walks down the ramp.
Main Event | Christian Cage vs. D'Angelo Dinero vs. Davey RichardsThe three proved why they are in the company's first ever main event with this performance. Each competitor showcased their ability and looked victorious at different times. Dinero, eager to prove himself started the match off aggressively and unloaded on both Cage and Richards. Richards took the momentum from Dinero with a Damage Reflex before Cage took advantage of Richards' concentration on Dinero and performed a falling inverted DDT. Neither man could gain a proper upper-hand throughout the entire match - the three were perfect match-ups. The conclusion came with Cage missing a frog splash on Richards which resulted in a recovering Richards to nail a DR Driver II on the unsuspecting Cage. Richards then turned to a recovering Dinero with a sinister grin, however Dinero reversed an attempted DR Driver into a double knee facebreaker, knocking Richards backwards into the corner turnbuckles, setting himself up for a DDE which The Pope nailed perfectly. As Richards collapsed forward, seemingly unconscious, The Pope looked down at Richards with a smirk on his face, however he did it for one second too long. Cage shocked Dinero appearing behind him and nailing a Killswitch and gaining the victory.
Winner | Christian Cage via Pinfall
Christian Cage climbs up the corner turnbuckles and signals a title around his waist with a huge smirk on his face as the crowd cheer for him. Davey Richards rolls out of the ring and stumbles up the ramp visibly furious and hurt. As Christian leaves, Dinero remains in the ring on the canvas, still recovering from the Killswitch. Unbeknownst to Cage as he retreats to backstage, Bryan Danielson enters the ring from the crowd and viciously beats The Pope down to jeers and heat from the crowd. He looks down on Dinero in disgust as EWS' debut show comes to a close.
