The cameras cut to the titantron which is showing the General Manager of the PWA, Mark Rodgers.
Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Mark Rodgers and I am still the new General Manager of the Pure Wrestling Alliance. Today I'm here to talk to you all about some of the matches that we hope you'll be enjoying at the upcoming PWA Pay-Per-View, Warzone, which will be kicking off our tour of the Middle-East.
The crowd chants USA at the screen.
As I said, I'm also here to talk about the matches that you'll be seeing on this tour, so let's get into that.
For starters, tonight you'll be seeing the team of Marcus Maximus and CM Styles go head to head with the Tag Champions, Muhammad Islami and Ravi Bishara in a Number One Contenders Match. You may be thinking, 'but Mark, Stars 'n' Stripes are already the Champions, what use is this match to them', and I'd say that this is an excellent question that I am willing and able to answer. If Styles and Maximus win here, they become the Number One Contenders to the titles at Warzone. If they're not able to defeat the Champions, then Mr Islami and Mr Bishara will not be required to defend the Tag Titles in front of their home crowd. However, they would be allowed to pick a team to face if they so desired.
The crowd aren't too happy about this announcement, so they continue to chant 'USA'.
Onto the Main Event of the PPV though, and I'd like to announce that the match for the PWA World Heavyweight Championship is to be a Fatal-4-Way between the Champion, Muhammad Islami and his challengers, Bangarang, Rott Wyler and his tag partner, Ravi Bishara.
The crowd cheer for everyone but the Eastern duo.
On top of these two matches, we're also going to see the first ever PWA Intercontinental Title Defence as Joey Spears faces off against his opponent tonight, Nelson King.
The crowd cheers both men.
Of course, there will be more matches announced next week on PWA Thunder, so keep your eyes open for that. For now though, ladies and gentlemen, enjoy tonights Thunder, and I'm sure I'll be speaking to all of you good folks soon.

*Almost immediately after Mar Rogers finishes his announcements, the titantron turns on again and it shows Grant Gatling, up close and personal, as he gingerly taps on the camera lens in front of him.*
"This thing on or what?"
"Yeah. It's on."
"You sure? I mean, I don't see the red light or anything so..."
*Gatling stops in the middle of his rambling when he hears the crowd cheering and he realizes that he's on the air.*
"Oh! Uh.....yeah, so, hello, Chicago. My name is Grant Gatling and I have absolutely no idea how a camera works. That's what happens when you get raised in the country most of your life, I guess. I'm still trying to figure out how to use Vine and Instagram. Anyways, so you all heard about the Styles/Maximus v. Stars N' Stripes situation..."
*The crowd reaction is split, with cheers for CM Styles and Marcus Maximus and boos for Stars N' Stripes.*
"....and of course, PWA's resident pothead and first ever PWA Intercontinental Champion, Joey Spears, defending his championship against Nelson King..."
*Cheers erupt at the mention of Joey Spears' name.*
"...and finally, the Turban Toolhead himself, Muhammad Salami, going up against 3 other challengers all at once but c'mon, Mr. Rogers, how could you forget about the highly anticipated match between Grant Gatling and CM Styles in a knock-down, drag-out hardcore bloodbath for the PWA Hardcore Championship? "
*An awkward silence blankets the arena at Gatling's animosity.*
"Okay, okay, I'm kidding. It's not going to be that serious but I hope for CM Styles' sake, he doesn't think I'm going to go easy on him just because he and I aren't constantly at each other's throats. It's not every day that you get an opportunity like this one, Styles, and you can bet that after letting a championship opportunity pass me by once, I'm not going to let go past me again. But don't fret because I know that you and Maximus are gonna kick Stars N' Stripes asses, become the new number one contenders, and beat them again at Warzone and become the new tag team champions so you won't be without championship gold after I win my match tonight So what'd you think? Do you think you're ready to withstand a gatling's barrage of fury or will you fail to make it past the first line of artillery? The choice is yours, Styles, but I already know the answer so let's not keep Chicago waiting any longer and let's do this thing!"
*The camera shuts off right before Gatling can be seen hyping himself up and heading out to the ring for his match.*
