Re: Extreme Revival
EPW ON HBO
"Start a War" by Static X plays as the intro video airs. We are live from Montpelier, Vermont tonight. The crowd is cheering as the camera's go to Joey Styles
Joey: Hello, ladies and gentleman, and welcome to another exciting edition of Extreme Pro Wrestling on HBO. My name is, as you know, Joey Styles, and we have a jam-packed night for you! Rob Van Dam and "The Franchise" Shane Douglas have been itching to get at each other, and tonight, they will finally meet in the ring! Rob Van Dam will team with the EPW world champion, Bryan Danielson, and they will face the team of "The Franchise" Shane Douglas and Jeff Hardy. But right now, it's time for a match for the International Title!
A graphic flashes showing the IN title, and we are taken to the entrance ramp. "One Big Rush" by Joe Satriani plays as the challenger, Hayabusa comes out to the ring to a wave of cheers.
Joey: For those of you who missed EPW last week, Hayabusa beat Kaz Hayashi in an astounding number one contender's match to earn the right to wrestle in the second ever title match to be seen by a national audience in EPW.
"Cool" plays as Carlito walks out to the ring. He is very calm, and possibly as a result of that, the crowd boo's him louder then usual.
Joey: Carlito has been the International champion for well over 4 months now in EPW, beating Evan Bourne in a "Loser Leaves EPW" match at our last super show, "East Coast War Zone", and he has been on a roll. The question is, will Hayabusa be able to dethrone Carlito tonight?
MATCH 1- INTERNATIONAL TITLE MATCH: Carlito (C) VS Hayabusa
The match begins with some back-and-fourth shoving. Carlito is clearly not sweating this at all, but Hayabusa catches him with a dropkick. He goes for a quick pin, but Carlito kicks out. The two men rise and Carlito, who is clearly taking this more seriously now, arm drags Hayabusa and follows it up with an arm lock. Hayabusa wiggles himself free, and he goes for an Enzugiri, but Carlito ducks it and knee drops The Falcon. The two go back and fourth for a bit until Carlito manages to Spine buster Hayabusa, giving himself the advantage. Carlito zones in on Hayabusa's back, weakening the core to make his finisher that much more devastating. Carlito puts The Falcon in position for a Flowing DDT, but Hayabusa punches Carlito in the side a few times, gets out of the DDT-Set up and hits Carlito with a DDT of his own. The two get up, and The Falcon hits a suplex. The Falcon goes to the apron and... Springboard Corkscrew Senton! He goes for the pin.... only a two count, though. Despite the kick out, Hayabusa is taking advantage of the situation. He wrestles laps around Carlito for a bit, with a flurry of arm drags, strong strikes, take downs and submissions focusing on Carlito's right knee. Eventually, Hayabusa goes to lift Carlito up for the Falcon Arrow, but "The Bad Apple" reverses it and hits a suplex on Hayabusa, crashing The Falcon's left ankle onto the middle rope. Hayabusa looks hurt after this. The two are down for a moment, and the ref begins a count. The two are up by seven, though. They trade blows back and fourth for a bit, until Carlito sends Hayabusa into the ropes. Carlito goes for a flap jack, but Hayabusa hits a DDT on his way down. Hayabusa lands on his leg funny, and he limps his way over to the apron. He jumps up to the top rope and goes for a Springboard Moonsault... CARLITO REVERSES IT INTO THE BACK STABBER! 1.... 2.... 3! It's over!
WINNER and STILL INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION: Carlito by pinfall after 15:41
Carlito holds the title high above his head and, while he is being booed, a few can be heard applauding the two for a great match
When we return, Hayabusa is being helped to the back, and is being applauded by the crowd. "Start A War" by Static X plays and Paul Heyman makes his way to the entrance area. He shakes Hayabusa's hand before addressing the crowd.
Paul: First of all, before I get to business, let's applaud Carlito and Hayabusa for a great match!
The crowd, for the most part, cheers
Paul: It's great matches and phenomenal wrestlers like that that make EPW the best wrestling promotion in the world today, and in five weeks, we will be able to prove that at our first ever Pay Per View event, "Still Barely Legal". Now, over the course of the next few weeks, you will here me make quite a few announcements about this show, but I would like to make the first of those announcements tonight. As you all know, tonight, our Tag Team Champions, Mexico's Most Wanted...
Boo's at the mention of them
Paul: ...will be facing off against Paul London and Brian Kendrick...
Paul: ...will be facing off in a non-title match. While this match is, with no doubt in my mind, going to be an exciting one, I decided to spice things up just a LITTLE bit more. So, I would like to announce the stipulation for this match- If Mexico's Most Wanted wins tonight's match, they will get to name their opponents for "Still Barely Legal". It could be anybody in the world, so long as they agree to it, no questions asked. However, should Paul London and Brian Kendrick win tonight's match, then they will be facing MMW at "Still Barely Legal", and it will be... for the EPW Tag Team Titles! Also, next week there will be a 7-Diva Over-the-top-rope battle royal, where the winner will face Victoria Varon for the EPW Women's Championship at "Still Barely Legal"! With that said, enjoy the rest of the show!
"Start A War" plays as Paul makes his exit to huge cheers. We go to the broadcast table with Joey Styles.
Joey: Well, there you have it, by the end of tonight, the first match for "Still Barely Legal" will be announced, depending on who wins the tag match tonight! Folks.... do we really have to do this? Fine... the following is a paid announcement by "The Long Island Iced Z", Zach Ryder... now might be a good time for a bathroom break.
A video airs of Zach Ryder lifting weights at the gym while listening to techno music. He looks up at the camera and smiles
Zach: Hey broski's, my name is Zach Ryder. You know, two weeks ago, Maven Huffman beat me, and ever since then, everyone's been giving me crap for it? Are you kidding, bro? Maven's no where near as exciting as me, the Long Island Iced Z! And even further, now there's internet rumors going around that Maven's coming back soon, and he's got a grudge against me! Are you serious, bro? Maven, you got what you had coming to you! If you would have stayed out of my business, I wouldn't have had to beat you down, and that could have been me facing Carlito tonight for the International title! Maven, if you want to get hurt again, then come at me, bro! Just know that if you do... you won't be coming back for a long time! WOO WOO WOO..... you know it, BRO!
We are taken back stage, where Christy Hemme is standing with Paul London and Brian Kendrick.
Christy: Paul, Brian, tonight you have the opportunity of a life time! You will get to face Mexico's Most Wanted, and if you win, you will face them at "Still Barely Legal" for their EPW Tag Team Titles, what are your thoughts?
Paul: Well, first of all, those belts do NOT belong to Mexico's Most Wanted... well, at least they won't for very long. Me and Brian have been busting our humps all around the world, and we're finally being given a chance to make it! If you think we're blowing that, then you got another thing coming!
Brian: Halloween, Damien, you guy's have been on the top here for awhile, and we respect that... but you better start shining those belts up, because pretty soon, there going to be around our waists.
The two walk off screen, and Next is seen at the bottom.
When we come back, "Genie in a Bottle" by Fozzy is playing, and the duo of London & Kendrick are running down to the ring to a healthy cheer. Their music fades, and "Perros" plays as Mexico's Most Wanted comes down to the ring to boo's.
MATCH 2: Paul London & Brian Kendrick VS Mexico's Most Wanted- NON TITLE. IF LONDON & KENDRICK WIN, THEY WILL FACE MMW FOR THE TAG TITLES AT "STILL BARELY LEGAL". IF MMW WINS, THEY PICK THEIR OPPONENTS AT "STILL BARELY LEGAL"
The match starts off with London and Halloween. The two lock up in the center of the ring, but Halloween hits him with a drop toe hold, then quickly spins over and locks in a front headlock. The two go to a standing position quickly, and London pushes Halloween into his partner's corner. Damien tags in, and springboard double stomps London in the small of his back. Damien hits the ropes as London stands, and he catches London with a running crossbody, getting a 1 count for his troubles. Halloween and Damien make a series of quick tags, taking care not to let London get to his corner. Kendrick is getting fired up. Eventually, Damian grabs London by the feet and starts swinging him around. Halloween jumps in the ring, but neither of the two notice that London manages to tag in Kendrick as he's being swung. Kendrick runs in and throws Halloween over the top rope. Damien stops, but he is dizzy, and Kendrick rolls him up in a school boy. 1.... 2..... 3!
WINNERS AND TAG #1 CONTENDERS: Paul London and Brian Kendrick by Pinfall after 6:17
London and Kendrick run out quickly. Paul is holding his side, but the two are both excited. MMW is in the ring, and they are screaming about that being a "Bullshit Ending", and how "We got ROBBED!". Camera's go backstage, where Danielson is taping his arms up for his match. Rob Van Dam walks to him.
Rob: Look, Bryan, as much as I'd hate to ask you this, I'm a little paranoid right now because of Shane's actions two weeks ago... it could be the green talking a bit, too, but anyways, I need to know that your not going to fuck me tonight like Shane fucked me a few weeks ago, dude.
Bryan: Rob, two weeks ago, Jeff Hardy kicked my ass after the match, and there's a good chance that that wouldn't have happened if Douglas wouldn't have turned on us. As far as I'm concerned, Shane Douglas is just as much MY enemy as he is yours. Plus, I still have a grudge to settle with that face paint wearing fruit tonight. So, no, you have nothing to worry about, and no, I'm not going to fuck you. I don't swing that way buddy.
Rob laughs and the two leave the locker room. A graphic flashes saying "Main Event- Next!"
When we come back, "Perfect Strangers" by Deep Purple is playing as Shane Douglas walks out to the ring to HUGE boo's. Jeff Hardy is already in the ring. The music fades, and "The Final Countdown" by Europe plays. Danielson makes his way to the ring with the fans chanting "Your gonna get your fucking head kicked in" to the two men already in the ring.
Joey: Well, folks, it looks like RVD isn't the only one with a grudge tonight!
Danielson's music fades, and "Walk" by Pantera blasts as Rob Van Dam makes his way out to huge cheers. When RVD and Danielson enter the ring, Douglas bails. Hardy gives him an annoyed look, but stays in the ring as Danielson stares him down.
MAIN EVENT: Bryan Danielson & Rob Van Dam VS Shane Douglas & Jeff Hardy
The match starts with Van Dam and Jeff Hardy. The two lock up and Van Dam hits a stiff kick to Hardy's ribs. He tries to follow it with a spinning crescent kick, but Hardy moves and drop kicks Van Dam in the knee, sending RVD to the ground. Jeff hits the ropes and nails a double leg drop kick to RVD's knee. The two go to a standing position, and Hardy tries going for a very early Twist of Hate, but Van Dam counters it with a Bridging Northern Lights Suplex. Douglas runs in to break up the pin, but he doesn't leave right away. He throws Van Dam into the corner and starts beating away at him. Van Dam fights out of it, and the two brawl. The ref tries to break it up, but with no luck. Van Dam is pushed into his partner's corner, where Danielson makes the tag, but soon enough, RVD and Douglas' brawl goes outside of the ring and, eventually, to the backstage area. Danielson storms the ring and nails Jeff with snap suplex. The two get up, and Danielson ducks around and hits Hardy with a German suplex. The two stand and Danielson hits "The Antichrist of Wrestling" with a belly to belly suplex. He goes for the pin... but Hardy kicks out at two. Danielson takes advantage for awhile, spreading out his offence to make any of his finishing moves even more painful. Eventually, Danielson manages to put Hardy into the LaBelle Lock. While Hardy comes close to submitting, he is able to grab the ropes, forcing Danielson to break the hold. Danielson and Jeff get up, but Hardy pushes Bryan into the referee. Taking advantage, "The Charismatic Enigma" low blow's Bryan, but he drops to his knees as if he had been low blowed. The ref gets up, and begins to count the two. Hardy is up first, at 6, with Danielson quickly following. Jeff hits Bryan with a sitout jawbreaker. Hardy jumps to the top rope and.... HE NAILS THE SWANTON BOMB!!! 1.... 2..... 3!
WINNERS: Jeff Hardy & Shane Douglas by Pinfall after 11:54
Jeff Hardy crouches down over Danielson and can be heard saying "Your title... is MINE!". We go backstage, where security is holding Shane Douglas and Rob Van Dam off of each other, when Paul Heyman runs in.
Paul: Whoa whoa whoa, THAT is enough!
The ruckus calms down as everyone listens to Paul.
Paul: Look, if you two want to fight, I'll let you fight! At "Still Barely Legal", it will be Rob Van Dam facing "The Franchise" Shane Douglas! Also, next week, Rob, you will find a representative, and Shane, you will find a representative, and they will face one another in the main event! And whoever picks the winning man will get to pick the stipulation for your match!
The show ends with RVD and Shane nose-to-nose, staring each other down, with security surrounding them in case of another scuffle.
