"In professional wrestling, the independent circuit or indy circuit refers to the many independent promotions which are much smaller than major televised promotions. They are roughly analagous to a minor league for pro wrestling, or community or regional theatre."


Independent Wrestling Alliance
IWA





The Story:

Pennsylvania - February, 2011

The financial crisis from 2007 to the present is considered by many economists to be the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. This resulted the collapse of many large financial institutions and companies. The Professional Wrestling business and in particular small independent companies, collapsed financially and it seemed that only large organizations like the World Wrestling Entertainment had the power to stay competitive. Famous independent company owners, had no other choice but to think in perspective. Their goal was to "stay in business" as long as they could in this unusual market environment, even if they had to accept the big investment risk, the possibility of losing a lot of money in an really unstable business. Some of them came up with the idea to split the financial risk and form an Alliance. Several shareholders, smaller risk and maybe a bright future for independent wrestling in America. That's how names like Cary Silkin, Mike Quackenbush, Gabe Sapolsky & DJ Hyde formed the "IWA".. "Independent Wrestling Alliance"!

Welcome to the first ever edition of IWA "Sling Blade"!

• Kenny Omega's music hits and he comes out to a good pop from the crowd, after which he enters the ring. He takes a microphone.

Kenny Omega
“Hey.. for those of you who don’t know who the hell I am, let me introduce myself! My name is Kenny Omega and i came out here tonight.. to address you the fans. To address the management as well! I came out here tonight to thank everybody involved in this project! You guys made this possible.. you guys continued my dream.. which is to be the greatest wrestler alive someday. Without you, IWA wouldn’t be possible! Thank you! (Pop from the fans) I can promise you here tonight.. at this very moment, that I will do whatever it takes to win the IWA World Title and be the champion you all want and deserve!.. Because..”

• Omega's promo is cut off by DoS’s entrance theme! DJ Hyde, Chris Hero, Cibernetico, UltraMantis Black & Austin Aries come out to a huge heat…

DJ Hyde (Grabbing a Microphone from one of the staff members, after which pushing him rudely aside)
“What the hell are you talking about you small, curly haired, blond b*tch!? The Fans made this possible? THE FANS!?!? The Management!?! I MADE THIS POSSIBLE! I’m paying your bills, I’m buying earrings for your ugly girlfriend, I’m putting food on your table.. show some damn respect!”

• UltraMantis takes the microphone from DJ Hyde after his heated comment..

UltraMantis Black
“No, DJ Hyde.. the funniest part of that man’s statement wasn’t about the fans and their support and dedication to this project… it was about him and the IWA World Championship. He actually thinks he can win the biggest wrestling tournament in history just like that and become the first world champion? (Pointing at Omega in the ring) That man over there is mentally instable and should receive professional help instantly as far as I know… and believe me I know!”

• Austin Aries takes the microphone

Austin Aries (Addressing Omega)
“Champion!? You won’t even make it through the first round… Homicide will wipe that smirk off your stupid face tonight! The Dynasty of Sin will win that tournament.. and it really doesn’t matter which of my brothers will proudly lift that belt above their head as long as we’re in control! DoS is what matters, not IWA or you… Kenny Omega! I hope you understand that clearly? Because if you don't and you continue to interfere in our business, we’ll have no other choice but to eliminate you, not only from the tournament, but permanently!”

• Chris Hero takes the microphone

Chris Hero
“If he interferes ever again!? What are we the charity foundation? Let’s destroy that fool, right now!”

• Dynasty of Sin agrees with Hero’s suggestion and after a few seconds all four men start walking slowly towards the ring, when suddenly Hiroshi Tanahashi & Davey Richards hit the ring from the crowd to backup their fellow wrestler Kenny Omega. DJ Hyde quickly stops his “troops” and tells them - “Some other time guys, lets go!”, after which the most dominant stable in “Indy” history just walks away from the situation. Omega, Richards & Tanahashi pose in front of the fans for a little while, until the end of the segment..



• The Killers are watching this on a screen backstage..

Homicide (Smiling)
“It’s gonna` be an interesting night, haha! While those suckers fight between each other we’ll have the advantage in the tournament, braaaaaahh!!”

Joker
“Are you ready for tonight, chief.. I’m feeling a lil` bit crazy myself!”

Homicide (Fist bumping Joker)
“Don't worry, It’s all in the bag!..”

Jon Moxley (Sitting in the far corner, not that eager like his friends)
“Kenny Omega is no joke! (Showing a scar on his hip) I had many battles with this kid and i can tell you from first hand he’s tough as nails. I guess i should tell you that before you go out to the ring… you haven’t been around awhile!”

Homicide (Getting in Moxley’s face)
“You got something` to say to me? Tough as nails.. just watch me tonight and you’ll see that no man from this roster can even stand next to me in the ring!”

Jon Moxley (Smiling)
"OK, star! Don't get upset.. "you go get him"!"

• Some tension between “The Killers” there? … Cameras return us to the ring where the first bout is about to begin!



~~~~~~~~
Tag Team Bout
2 vs 2
Jigsaw & El Generico vs PiTbulls (Kenny King & Kevin Steen) (/w Lacey)
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

- PiTbulls start off nicely as they keep tagging each other in and out and pressuring the legal tag, from their opponents team, El Generico. In one spot we see El Generico fighting both PiTbulls off with some elbows, trying to reach his corner, when Kenny King does a great Springboard Blockbuster on his foe, while Steen is holding Generico’s legs, trying to stop him from reaching Jigsaw!
- Generico makes the tag to his partner Jigsaw, after he “kills” King with a Brainbustaahhh off the turnbuckle, while Kenny is trying to finish a Superplex.
- Jigsaw accomplishes some of his signature moves, but PiTbull’s manager – Lacey successfully distracts him, so Steen is able to hit his sick Package Piledriver moments later on the masked wrestler!!
- 2.99999999999, after Generico hits a Senton Bomb off the top rope immediately to stop the fall! SO CLOSE!
- King tries a Spear on Generico seconds later, but the second ducks, and Kenny hits his partner Steen with the move… Generico takes out King as well with a Superkick, but the rising Kevin Steen hits a second Package Piledriver on the Luchador from out of nowhere… Ohh that was sick! From out of nowhere the legal tag Jigsaw, Springboards.. and Sunset Flips Steen into a pin attempt.. 1,2,3!!! Where did he came from!? What a win.. what an opener! Jigsaw & Generico are victorious!

Winners: Jigsaw & Generico via pinfall (09:11) ***


• The PiTbulls start a beatdown after the match, so Mike Quackenbush has no choice but to hit the ring from the backstage area.. and “clean house”. The two teams pour threats to one another, until the end of the segment!




• Roderick Strong is backstage. The ROH World Champion is about to hit a promo of some sort..

Roderick Strong (Looking at the camera)
“Everybody all of a sudden, started talking how good they are and how they are the ones taking the IWA World Championship “home” with them. Well I’ve already proven how good I am (Pointing at his belt) and I want it all, so Tanahashi… tonight.. I’m going to beat you 1,2,3, or even better tap, tap, tap in the middle of that ring and I’m going to win this tournament! It's time for a new era in IWA.. The Roderick Strong era!”

• Rody walks away after this statement..



* Next we have the special Trios Division Attraction!


~~~~~~~
Trios Division Attraction
Faction 3 (Colt Cabana, Eddie Edwards & Eddie Kingston)
vs
Dynasty of Sin (Chris Hero, Cibernetico & Austin Aries)
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

- "Dynasty of Sin" enters the arena to a major heat! Their opponents for tonight are Faction 3 – Cabana, Edwards & Kingston. This should be interesting!
- Colt Cabana & Cibernetico are the first legal tags.. both “technify” the hell out of each other in the opening moments of the match. In one interesting spot we see Cibernetico trying to hit his finishing maneuver the Garra Cibernetica, or with other words the High Angle Chokeslam, but Cabana reverses it with an Armdrag and manages to lock a Canadian Bacon Leaf on his opponent! Cibernetico reaches the ropes...
- Kingston elbows the s*it out of Aries when they enter the match. The Faction 3 member turns this into a brawl, until Aries does a nice Dropkick to his knee and locks very quickly the Horns of Aries! Edwards stops the move and German Suplexes Aries!
- DoS hit the ring instantly after Edward’s interference and a huge brawl explodes in front of the screaming crowd!
- Hero & Edwards somehow appear in the ring at the same time (the others are brawling outside) and begin exchanging blows. Hero stuns his opponent at one point and tries his Rolling Elbow KO shot, but Edwards ducks and places a beautiful Superkick in Hero’s chin, after which tries to end his adversary with the Die Hard! Hero pokes Edwards in the eyes and quickly hits the Hero’s Welcome!!



Pin attempt… the referee sees the carnage outside the ring and decides to count (Edwards & Hero are not the legal men) 1,2,3!! Ohhh DoS wins the “Trios” battle…

Winners: DoS via pinfall (11:10) **1/2

* After the match Edwards, Cabana & Kingston protest to the referee's decision, but it looks like it's final! DoS are the winners!



• IWA’s “General manager” – Jim Cornette introduces us to the rules of the World Championship tournament and presents The World Belt, which is recumbent in a golden case outside the ring! Finally It’s time for the first match of the competition!


~~~~~~~
Singles Bout
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Davey Richards vs Mike Quackenbush
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

- The ring announcer introduces the first two competitors and what a match is instored for us right now… Mike Quackenbush will take on “The People’s Hero” Davey Richards!
- The two crowd favorites begin the match slowly with a lot of positioning, locks and armdrags/snapmares.
- In one spot we see Mike Quackenbush hitting Davey with some Palm strikes and spinning elbows, Davey manages to counter one of the spinning elbows, catching his opponent by surprise, with a Half-Nelson Suplex!! Richards tries to lock the Kimura, but Quackenbush quckly escapes it and exits the ring for safety!
- In the middle of the match Richards demolishes Quack with a vicious Combo – a few slaps, Gamengiri + Running Lyger bomb, but gets a 2 count!
- Quackenbush stops the following attempt for another Running Powerbomb with an astonishing Arm Drag variation, after which he places a vicious Spinning Back Kick in Richards ribs and finishes the combination with a Brainbuster!.. 2 count!
- Both, tired from the heated battle start placing elbow after elbow in each other's face and chest.. there must be a winner, the stakes are too high! Ohh Richard delivers a huge Superkick in Qackenbush’s face in that exchange! “No sell”, Qack, still hanging on, hits Richards with another Spinning Back Kick.. and ends the exchange with a huge Jig 'n' Tonic (Credle Back to Belly Piledriver)!!!! What an impact! 1…2… 2.9999999! Another close pin attempt by Quackenbush!
- Quack hints the crowd, that he’s going to finish.. by taunting his downed opponent, after which he brings him up and tries the Quackendriver… Oh, Richards bounces back to his feet and both tie up, trying to bring down one another with the last remaining strength in their bodies! Quack butterflies Richards arms and from that position spins him, trying a Back Slide! This may be it.. the referee counts.. 1,2.. Oh, Richards kicks out (bouncing to his feet quickly), after which he delivers a huge soccer kick in Quack’s head, while he is still on the ground and ends him with the DR Driver!!



Right on his neck… 1,2,3!!!!! Amazing, Richards got the fall after this heated war! Great match..

Winner: Davey Richards via pinfall (14:40) ***3/4



• Cameras “transfer” us into the bathroom area of a Night club. We see Shingo in front of one of the booths, waiting for his tag team partner Claudio Castagnoli, who obviously had too many drinks tonight…

Shingo (With a Japanese accent)
“Come on man, ladies want go already.. hurry ups!”

Claudio Castagnoli (Feeling sick)
“It’s pronounced “Hurry up”… and NO, go away! Every single night you drag me to those places.. when are we gonna` wrestle, ah? We are wrestlers Shingo, not party animals! I can’t drink no more..”

Shingo (Looking at his hair in one of the mirrors)
“You gorgeous! Speak yourself dude, ladies love my style.. at my table gettin` wild!”



Claudio Castagnoli
“Are you repeating those damn “Like a G6” lyrics again!?..”

Shingo (Fixing up his neck-piece)
“Maybe.. Come on, the ladies are waiting, why taking you so long!? (Starts imitating Ric Flair) Look me Claudio, I’m a Nature Boy.. Whooo!!”

Claudio Castagnoli (Feeling “sicker”)
“I hate you..”

Shingo
"Just two more drinks, dude! Next month we make run at tag team gold.. Promise!"

Claudio Castagnoli
"Ok, ok.. just stop pushing me, i'll be out in a minute!"



• Kenny Omega walks in Davey Richards locker room after his battle with Mike Quackenbush…

Kenny Omega (Clapping)
“You were great man! Quackenbush is one of the best talents around here and you managed to defeat him clean.. well done!”

Davey Richards (While placing some medicine ointment on his ribs)
“I guess you didn’t believe I could beat him in the first place.. isn’t that right, "future champ"?”

Kenny Omega (Smiling)
“Hey, no disrespect man.. you were great out there! I wish you the best of luck in the tournament!”

Davey Richards (Getting up from the bench and walking away)
“Keep your luck.. I think you may need It more!”

• Kenny Omega quickly turns his smile into a very serious expression, while looking at the receding Richards.



~~~~~~~
Singles Bout
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Homicide vs Kenny Omega
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

- The crowd is very hot for this one! Homicide & Omega make their way to the ring.. a classic “good vs evil collision”! Who will prevail is very hard to say, those two are so equally matched!
- The match starts slow.. with a lot of feelers and tie ups. In the first serious spot we see Homicide planting a great Belly to Belly throw after some Irish whip counters.
- Omega comes back with a big adrenaline rush Superplex, after 187 tries an Avalanche cutter!
- Both exchange a few elbows and strikes in the middle of the match, one of which gets blocked by The Notorious 187, who immediately plants Omega with the Ace Crusher for a 2 count..
- In one spot we see Homicide lifting Omega on his shoulders, when the second counters beautifully with a Reverse Hurricanrana + A vicious Shining Wizard after which.
- From this moment forward Omega gets in control and does not stop pushing the tempo until the end.
- We see Omega hitting Homicide with Palm strikes, putting him on his back with Vertical Suplexes and Slams! It’s downhill from there for Homicide..
- Finally after a counter Omega hits a huge Croyt's Wrath!! This one is over folks!.. But wait what is this, Cibernetico from the “Dynasty of Sin” comes out to the ring and distracts the referee!! Cibernetico and Omega start going back and forward verbally, after Omega couldn’t complete his pin attempt on the destroyed Homicide. This goes on for a few moments, when Homicide breaks the annoying moment with a Brutal Cop Killah from behind!!! Omega lands right on his head!! Not this way, the referee counts 1,2,3!! It’s over… Cibernetico just cost Omega’s spot in the finals!! DoS strikes again tonight! After the bell rings, Cibernetico hits the ring with a steel chair and a sick smile.. Unfortunately for him, Davey Richards immediately runs for the save and prevents further damage on his partner Kenny Omega! Cibernetico lays some verbal threats towards Davey Richards as he’s walking away.. Kenny Omega can't believe it! He pushes Davey aside, after the second tries to help him up and leaves the ring disappointed!

Winner: Homicide via pinfall (10:18) ***




• We see DJ Hyde talking something to UltraMantis Black backstage.. maybe strategy for his match, which is next? When Hyde sees the camera crew in front of the room he shuts the door in their faces… What was that all about!?


~~~~~~~
Singles Bout
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
UltraMantis Black vs Jay Briscoe (/w Mark Briscoe)
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

- Huge pop for the Briscoe Brothers before the match..
- Black enters the ring in a couple of minutes also and the third match from the tournament can begin! The two engage in a Backhand chop war moments after the bell rings, which pumps up the crowd. Briscoe gets the best of it and in ends up hitting Black with some clotheslines and hard elbows.
- Jay forces Mantis into the corner and plants him with a Huge Running Elbow strike!!! The stunned UltraMantis doesn’t know where he is for a few moments and Jay is able to finish him with his Jay Driller!!! Oh My God, so soon in the match and Jay Briscoe has delivered his finisher… 1…2…3!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT!?!? UltraMantis one of the main assets for DoS has just been eliminated from the tournament!?

Winner: Jay Briscoe via pinfall (03:40)

• DJ Hyde immediately hits the ring and as one of the IWA shareholders orders the match to be restarted, telling the referee that UltraMantis Black’s foot was under the ropes. The replay shows that Mantis’s leg is really close to the ropes, but it’s not under them… However the match is being restarted!


~~~~~~~
Singles Bout
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
UltraMantis Black vs Jay Briscoe (/w Mark Briscoe)
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

- Briscoe instantly tries another Jay Driller, but Mantis forces him into the corner from that position
- Both go back and forward for a few minutes, when DJ Hyde distracts the referee for a moment. Mark Briscoe can’t take this injustice towards his brother any more and with the risk of being fired, attacks DJ Hide. While this turmoil is going on outside, in the ring Black pulls some kind of a brass knuckles from his boot, and KO’s Briscoe without the knowledge of the referee, who is too busy dealing with the situation outside the ring! Another heel move from DoS tonight!! Black pulls the referee back and orders him to count the pin… 1…2….3!!!!!! This one is over!! Oh, what a screwjob! Jay Briscoe has been eliminated from the tournament and DoS gets UltraMantis into the finals!

Winner: UltraMantis Black via pinfall (07:11) **1/2



• We see Paul London backstage! He peaks at the camera and it looks like it’s promo time..


Paul London
“Chuck Taylor!! .. Yeah, I’m talking to you dude! I was just informed that at “SLING BLADE #2” I would have the opportunity not only to participate in the Tournament for the IWA World Championship, but I will face an opponent that I really despise.. Immediately I thought to myself.. “Holly s*it, is “The Mainstream Superstar” Matt Hardy that broke?”, then I was finally told I will meet you in the middle of that ring. “The Paul London wannabe douchebag”, how nice for me! You always wanted to be me, you always imitated and worshiped me.. and finally you’ll have the chance to lose to me! So, I’ll see you next month buddy, hope you come prepared.. cause you can be damn sure I’ll bring it like I always do for these fans! Get ready Chucky, Londonmania is coming for you!”



~~~~~~~
Main Event
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Roderick Strong vs Hiroshi Tanahashi
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

- It’s finally time for out Main Event. Tonight UltraMantis Black, Davey Richards & Homicide qualify for the finals of the tournament. Our last attraction from this heated competition will be the battle between the ROH World Champion – Roderick Strong and the Japanese sensation Hiroshi Tanahashi!
- Both start out strong with a lot of technical offence! Arm Drags, locks, Fireman Carry after Fireman Carry, Arm & Leg wrenches.. and every “text book” pure wrestling move done with excellence, you can think of!
- In one situation, Rody catches his foe with a beautiful momentum Half-Nelson Backbreaker, after which quickly he tries to close the deal with the Stronghold submission move, but Tanahashi manages to escape Strong’s finisher with a beautiful variation of the Inside Cradle! 1,2… oh Roderick kicks out, that was close!
- At one point Roderick tries a Superplex from the top rope, but gets pushed away from Tanahashi. Quickly the Japanese star tries to hit one of his signature manoeuvres the “High Fly Flow”!!.. Roderick manages to roll away in the last moment and Tanahashi crashes into the mat!
- Tanahashi tries a few interesting quick pin attempt variations but without major luck. In the end the Japanese wrestler gets a Momentum German Suplex from out of nowhere, right on his neck by the ROH champion.. However, Roderick is too tired to capitalize!
- Tanahashi manages to hit The Sling Blade, but for a 2 count!
- Both land most of their signature moves without closing the deal. At one point both try to end each other with punches and kicks, tired from the intense fight.. After some physical offence, Roderick manages to slam Tanahashi hard on the mat with a Powerbomb Backbreaker variation!! The ROH World Champion locks the Stronghold seconds after it, but Tanahashi is too close to the ropes!! The move has to be broken, man what a match!
- Both, fatigued to the limit, try some elbows and even headbuts. Finally Roderick explodes with a Superkick!!! Tanahashi is still on his feet, so Rody goes charging for the Sick Kick to end the bout once and for all, but Hiroshi manages to catch him by surprise from nowhere with a High Angle Dragon Suplex!!!!!!!! DAMN, what an impact!!! 1…….2………3!!!!!!!! It’s over!! Both are worn out from this battle, but Tanahashi succeeded and continues in the tournament! A great match!

Winner: Hiroshi Tanahashi via pinfall (19:56) ****1/2

Right after this tehnique clinic an Unknown theme music hits in the building!!!? Who the hell can this be… we’re expecting a huge wrestling debut tonight, but why exactly in this very moment?... The fans look at the entrance ramp and after a few moments.. “THE ANIMAL” BATISTA comes out from the backstage area!!! OH MY GOD, BATISTA IS MAKING HIS IWA DEBUT!!



Batista receives a huge pop, after which he hits the ring in his wrestling attire and plants the rising up Hiroshi Tanahashi with a huge Lariat!! Batista lifts Tanahashi's remains and destroys them with The Batista Bomb!! Batista bomb for Tanahashi!!! What is Batista doing right now, why is he attacking Tanahashi!? Dave continues his assault on Roderick Strong, who has just returned to his feet… Brutal Spear for The ROH World Champion… Batista finishes Strong off with a running Turnbuckle Bomb and leaves his remains in the middle of the ring. He receives big heat from the fans after this brutal attack.. We see The Dynasty of Sin hitting the ring right after that! DoS circle around Batista, ready to tore him apart, when with a smile DJ Hyde gives “The Animal” a hug.. and informally DoS welcome their newest member – Batista!! What a debut… DoS receive major heat from the crowd, but with Batista’s presence now, they are maybe indestructible! What a night folks…

Hello and welcome to the second edition of IWA’s “Sling Blade”!

• The show immediately opens with Dynasty of Sin’s theme music! IWA’s “toughest” shareholder - DJ Hyde… the leader of DoS, comes out through the entrance ramp with the presence of his loyal troops Chris Hero, Cibernetico, Austin Aries, one of the IWA Heavyweight Championship tournament finalists – UltraMantis Black and of course the newest edition to the stable… The Superstar… “THE ANIMAL” Batista!

DJ Hype (Getting a microphone, after which waiting for the “Boo’s storm” to calm down a little bit)
“Yeah, I hate you too douchebags! As a matter of fact I have no pity at all, wasting your time and hard-earned money with my presence right now.. I can stand in this ring all night long, doing absolutely NOTHING, while you boo the hell out of me and I won’t even care! NOBODY CARES what you people think around here! NOBODY! It’s all about these men in the ring that you see before you… It’s all about the greatest group in wrestling today - DoS!! (Huge heat)”

“The Animal” Batista (Finally, after getting the microphone from DJ Hyde)
“(Waiting a few moments with a smile on his face, while the fans boo him) Oh, come on you all want me here, you know you do! The spotlights are always on “The Animal”, you know that… come on!! (Again smiling for a few seconds, while the fans chant - “GO HOME, GO HOME!”) This is my new home.. and I’m here to stay!! So no matter if you like it or not, Batista and DoS are taking over IWA! And… haha.. what a way to show it last week, right!? I dominated a “world champion” in my debut! What was that kid’s name again? I gotta` talk about this for a second, bare with me! What… Roderick Strong? Strong!? Really? Haha, I threw that kid around like a boomerang, with the only difference he didn’t came back! AT ALL! .. Is that the best you can offer around here, that’s a World Champion!? I bet I can take the title away from that little nothing in a minute.. (Batista gets interrupted by Colt Cabana’s music)!”

• What’s Cabana even doing here? Is he crazy interrupting “The Animal” like this?..”

Colt Cabana (Looking at DoS with a smile on his face)
“Did I hear you correctly… you want a proper challenge big guy? You want to get it on with somebody who can actually beat you in the middle of that ring? (Looking at the crowd) You.. you guys want to see that? You want to see me swing with “The scary Animal” until I turn him into an obedient puppy?... (Pop) Well, nobody can argue with the people!? What do you think Batista, are you really an Animal, or deep inside you’re just a little puppy that awaits the arrival of his master?”

“The Animal” Batista (After laughing for awhile)
“Hahha… YOU!?!? I really don’t know what to say..”

Colt Cabana
“Say yes if you have nothing to lose..”

Austin Aries (Taking the microphone from Batista)
“Don’t listen to the younger version of “Tommy Dreamer’s belly” over there Animal, that kid doesn’t even deserve to stand in the same ring, with a champion of your caliber! And you… (Looking at Cabana) if you wanted to be in the spotlight so bad, why didn’t you just look at the fight card for tonight? You have a match against a former 2 TIME ROH World Champion, you already have a match with a huge superstar.. you have a match with ME, Cabana! You want a beating so bad… I’ll take care of that! You want to be in the spotlight while you’re taking it, I’ll take care of that also! So do you agree with this, or I should bring myself to your level.. and beg?”

Colt Cabana (Smiling)
“Hah, ok! Yeah, we’re on.. we’re definitely on Dr. Emmett Brown, don’t put your mad eyes on me right now, you’re scaring everyone!.. And right before I go I just want to say to all of you, for such an evil and dominant force, you should really learn how to watch your backs in that ring!.. ”

• The ROH World Champion, Roderick Strong enters the ring from the crowd, right after Cabana’s promo with a steal chair in his hands and manages to strike down Chris Hero & UltraMantis Black, just before DoS runs away “in fear”, departing from their dominant position in the middle of the ring.. Roderick Strong & Batista exchange a few words, before Strong decides hitting the rising UltraMantis Black with a vicious Sick Kick, as a massage to The Animal.. Wow, it should be an interesting night folks!

• It’s time for our first match of the evening – A Tag Team match between Quackensaw (Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw) and Claudio Castagnoli & Shingo!




~~~~~~~
Tag Team Bout
2 vs 2
Claudio Castagnoli & Shingo vs Quackensaw (Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw)
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

~ A good start for Quackensaw. Mike Quackenbush and Castagnoli are the first legal tags. Castagnoli starts out strong with some clubs to the back, arm wrenches, punches and kicks, but Quack’s speed and technique helps him to get the upper hand a few minutes later.

~ Quack executes a great High Dropkick in Castagnoli’s face, a counter after one irish whip and by forcing himself into the ropes again, he ends the combination with a nice looking Spinning DDT for a 2 count!

~ Jigsaw gets tagged in, but Castagnoli manages to eyerake him in all the commotion, after which he reaches his corner and tags Shingo! “The All night longer”, fixes his hair and it’s show time! Few interesting moments in the first exchanges, between him and Jigasaw. We witness shoulderblocks, taunts, arm and neck wrenches by the two! Jigsaw kicks up the pace after a roll up into a Faceplant combination…

~ Takagi comes back in the match after a few minutes, by countering a back drop (landing on his feet), sending the entangled Jigsaw into the corner face burst and finishing him up with a Bridging German Supex for a 2 count.

~ In the end of the match we see Claudio as the legal tag spinning Mike Quackenbush around with his Giant Swing, until Jigsaw drops a great Front Dropkick from the turnbuckle in his chest, breaking the move. While Jigsaw gets removed from the ring by the referee, Shingo hits the rising Mike Quackenbush with a low blow from behind and gives him the Original Falconry!!

~ Shingo places Castagnoli;s body over Mike’s and exits the ring quickly!! The referee counts the fall as Jigsaw watches in disbelieve! 1,2,3.. what a win for Castagnoli & Shingo in their first match in IWA!!


Winner: Claudio Castagnoli & Shingo via pinfall! (08:20) **3/4




• We see MARIA KANELLIS wearing a sexy black dress backstage, entering an unknown locker room! She starts talking to somebody and as the cameras show us the full view of the room, it’s realized that this is MONTEL VONTAVIOUS PORTER’s Locker room!! (Good pop from the crowd for both)

Maria Kanellis (Smiling.. looking cute as always)
“Hey, I just wanted to be the first one to greet you around here! How are you doing.. I see you’re ready to go out there?”

MVP (Going towards Maria)
“Hey, girl.. look at you, you’re looking more beautiful than ever! I’m good.. I’m good (Looking around) I’m gonna` give this place a shot, you know. I have something to say to these people right now, I just can’t wait!”

Maria Kanellis
“Haha, well thank you.. so sweet of you! It’s great that you’ve decided to give IWA a try! Well I won’t keep you anymore, good luck with your appearance tonight! … And if you want we can catch up later, after the show? Maybe a cup of coffee or something?”

MVP (Smiling)
“Yes, that would be cool… you got it!”



• A few moments later MVP’s music hits and he comes out to a huge pop from the crowd!



MVP (After grabbing a microphone)
“You know guys, it’s great.. it’s really great to be here! The support you have shown me this year, it’s just amazing! And finally I’ve decided what should be my next step.. IWA is growing so fast, that for a hot free agent like me to pass an opportunity of this kind, it would be just crazy! Now you all know I have an important announcement to make, so I might just go with it and say what I’ve decided to say to you. The IWA shareholders aren’t pleased with ONE man… who thinks he “owns” the place! Who thinks he is above everybody else! I’m talking of course about DJ Hyde and his so-called group of mercenaries “DoS”. (HEAT) Yeah, what a bunch of as*holes, right! What did you expect boys.. that there wouldn’t be any consequences!?!? Oh, believe me there are BIG consequences coming your way… AND THEY ARE COMING TONIGHT!! As for the shareholders, they will BE here in this building, at “SLING BLADE #3” next month! So don’t worry at all about DoS, because… (Unknown music interrupts MVP’s speech!)”

IT”S CARLITO!!!!!!!! (Good pop from the crowd) What a night!! So many debuts and revelations..

Carlito (Coming out with a microphone in his hand and his usual sulky smirk)
“Where is the love, MVP!? You knew Carlito was here tonight.. and you introduced only yourself as a HOT free agent who signed with the company!? Where is the love!? Carlito was nice to you, when you acted like a lost puppy in… that other organization and when you finally rose to the top, you forgot some people that helped you get over with those people!............ And that my friend, is NOT very COOL! Not cool at all!”

MVP
“Hey.. hey hold on man, yeah as a matter of fact you’re right! How can I be so disrespectful towards someone who helped me so much in my career! .. Helped me become the star that I am today.. yes thank you for reminding me Carlito, I nearly forgot! I want to thank Alex Gibson & Norman Smiley, my trainers, the guys who made me what I am today!! Made Mr. 305! …And to you crazy-looking, Afro Samurai wanna be, uncool b*tch i’ll show you the freakin` exit, right before I come down to the entrance ramp and whoop that as*! Lost puppy? You’ll be a lost puppy in that ring when I get through with you!”

Carlito (Moving his head with negativity and disbelieve)
“That’s not cool!!... Not Cool!! You’ll be hearing from me again, believe that. Enjoy your sad, pathetic moment with the stupid fans, I didn’t came for that! Very soon all of you will respect Carlito! You’ll see… (Walking slowly to the backstage) You’ll all see!”

• MVP’s music hits and he celebrates his moment with the crowd!

Singles Bout
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
El Generico vs Kevin Steen
~~~~~~~



MAIN MOMENTS

~ We all know the story between these two! This should be an interesting match in round 1 of the IWA World Championship tournament! Generico & Steen quickly tie up after exchanging a few mean stares. Steen turns this immediately into a brawl by hitting his opponent from nowhere with some short elbows. Steen forces Generico into the ropes and gives him a huge Back Body Drop, after that!!

~ Generico tries to fight back with some Dropkicks and elbows, but Steen again takes the control, after hitting his opponent with a momentum Knee to the gut and executing perfectly a Go Home Driver for a 2 count!!!

~ At one point Generico manages to pull out a back Drop into a Neckbreaker combo, but misses with the following Senton Bomb from the top rope! Steen quickly locks the Sharpshooter, but Generico manages to reach the ropes!

~ Good “Slap exchange” in the middle of this fight.. El Generico tries a Brainbuster, but Steen counters with a stomp to his left foot, and by forcing himself into the ropes nearly destroys his foe with a Big Lariat!!

~ Steen tries for another Sharpshooter, but Generico manages to push him away. Steen charges towards the rising El Generico, but the second adds a Dropkick to the combination and a Superkick, that sends Steen into the Turnbuckle………………. OLEEEE` KICK from out of nowhere!!!!!!! Ohhh, what an impact!! Steen can barely stay on his feet! Generico quickly places Steen on the turnbuckle and tries the Brainbustaahhhh from there, but gets blocked with some punches!! Steen adds a few headbutts and after El Generico fells down from the position, “Mr. Wrestling” tries The Package Piledriver to finish his opponent! Generico manages to hold on.. blocking the move and after a great momentum spin to pin Steen in a Jackknife pinning position!!! Oh my god, that came out from nowhere!!! Steen can’t believe it, Generico advances in the tournament! The masked luchador celebrates with the crowd, while Steen holds his face in disbelieve!


Winner: El Generico via pinfall (12:17) ***3/4

...

• DoS enter The General manager Jim Cornette’s office!!

DJ Hyde (Angry at Cornette)
“What’s that all about Jim!? What’s MVP doing here… suddenly all the WWE rejects decided to follow the “Great One” Batista’s footsteps and come ot IWA?? All of the sudden there are surprises planned, people and shareholders coming here… tell me what’s happening!? I pay your damn bills! I demand you tell my instantly what’s going on!”


Jim Cornette
“Settle down princess? First of all, if you paid my bills.. I would be hanging out with the homeless guy, who sleeps near the trash cans, behind the building! Second of all you all are the kind of guys who would double cross, lie, deceive, cheat and swindle somebody, that’s not how I deal with my business. I don’t know nothing! Now, get the hell out of my office.. I have a show to run!..”

Batista (Grabbing Cornette by the coat and ramming him into the wall, as everyone look surprised by his actions)
“Look now, you unimportant, fat, no talented earthworm… We’re not playing around, do you understand that? You can’t do nothing to us, this man over here (Pointing at DJ Hyde) is the damn boss.. I’m the guy that can tear you apart limp from limp, just like that... and you.. YOU’RE nothing!! Tell us what you know NOW!”

Jim Cornette (A little frightened)
“I don’t know anything.. let me go!”

DJ Hyde (Telling Batista to let Cornette go)
“….. (Smiling at Cornette) If you remember something, you know where to find us! We’ll survive no matter what happens! WE’RE DYNASTY OF SIN! Boys, I think It’s time for us to be a little more… drastic in our actions!”




~~~~~~~
Singles Bout
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Austin Aries vs Colt Cabana
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

~ Colt Cabana get’s ready for a huge fight… when Austin Aries comes out with Chris Hero & UltraMantis Black’s presence, all smiling at him! Cabana doesn’t like that, but he’s helpless… All three men hit the ring after a little while and despite of Colt’s opposition, they beat him down like a dog!!

~ Cabana’s friends Eddie Edwards & Eddie Kingston quickly hit the ring to aid their fellow, but Batista & Cibernetico (the rest of DoS) make their way to the ring as well and turn the picture upside down very rapidly! Batista gives Edwards a Huge Spear.. and hits Kingston with a Spinebuster!! Batista finally gets his hands on Cabana and destroys him with a BATISTA BOMB!!!



DoS beatdown their opponents a bit more, after which they lift their hands victorious in the middle of the ring!! DJ Hyde enters the ring with a microphone laughing and tells that Cabana’s “provocative behavior” is the reason why DoS reacted with force and everything is his fault!! Hyde tells the people that he disqualifies Cabana from the tournament.. and Austin Aries continues just like that! (HUGE HEAT FROM THE FANS!) Somebody has to stop these guys!


Winner: Austin Aries via management decision!



• Davey Richards & Kenny Omega are shown backstage in separate places, watching the aftermath of the Colt Cabana & Austin Aries match. Both have almost identical reaction to the end…

• It’s time for our next Tournament bout.. Those two don’t like each other much. Paul London claims that Chuck Taylor copies his style and gimmick and what better place than The IWA World Championship tournament to settle the score!



~~~~~~~
Singles Bout
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Paul London vs Chuck Taylor
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

~ A quick start for both Daredevils! A lot of Armdrags and positioning. Chuck Taylor isn’t “fooling around” like he usually does in a match, he looks very focused for this one.

~ In one crazy spot, we see Chuck Taylor after an Irish Whip attempt from London, jumping across the ropes, quickly executing a Springboard Back Elbow, which London ducks wisely by falling on the ground for a moment. London momentarily hits a Dropsault + Standing Shooting Star Press combo, but for a two count!

~ Chuck manages to block a charging attempt at him in the corner with a big boot.. after which he dumps London on the floor with a Cross-armed Double Knee Backbreaker!!!!!!! Oh… but only for a 2 count!

~ At one point Paul London manages to hit his foe with the Mushroom Stomp + a Falcon Arrow after that! Nice quick combo by London.. things get interesting, because Paul climbs the top rope and gives a sign he will perform his Shooting Star Press… Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh SHOOTING STAR PRESS attempt!!!!!!!!!... Noooooooooo he misses, nobody home!!! Chuck manages to escape from the predicament in the last second and London crashes on the mat!! What a miss.. Taylor quickly jumps on his feet and while running, turns the dazed London with a La Magistral!!!! 1….2…3!!!!!!! DONE… Chuck is victorious!! London can’t believe it, but the “Paul London wanna be” just took away his spot in the tournament!


Winner: Chuck Taylor via pinfall (11:56) ***1/2



• Davey Richards enters Hiroshi Tanahashi’s Locker room, while the Japanese phenom talks with his translator… (Pop)

Davey Richards (Shaking hands with both Tanahashi & his translator)
“(Towards the translator) Hey, I need to talk to him about something, will you translate? Yes.. ok.. Tell him that I’m worried about Kenny Omega and his state of mind right now! He is not the same after he lost that tournament spot to Cibernetico.. I’m afraid he’ll do something crazy, that he will regret! I think we should try helping him somehow…”

Hiroshi Tanahashi (through his translator)
“I’ll reason with him!!.. Don’t worry..”

• Tanahashi nods seriously to Richards and the second one, a little bit surprised from Hiroshi’s confidence, leaves the premises!



• The Worlds Greatest Team (Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas) are shown backstage for an interview with our newest backstage interviewer – Kevin Kelly:

Kevin Kelly
“So gentlemen, next month, at “SLING BLADE 3” you’ll participate in a 3 WAY tag team match, which very well may be “a ladder” to a eventual title shot for the tag team championships! You, The Briscoe Brothers and The Killers (Jon Moxley & The Joker) will have the opportunity to take that spot! What are your thoughts weeks before the match?”

Charlie Haas
“What are our thoughts… we’re The World’s Greatest Tag Team Kevin Kelly, that says enough in my opinion! The Killers.. we don’t even know who these guys are and well The Briscoe Brothers.. we always wanted to face them!”

Shelton Benjamin
“..Oh yes we did! The Briscoes are a tough tag team.. former champions, I’ll give them the gratitude! But no doubt about it Kevin Kelly, we’re the BEST tag team in IWA and we’re gonna get these belts.. one way.. or another!”

Charlie Haas
“Be sure of that!..”

• TWGTT walks away after these impactful words!




~~~~~~~
Singles Bout
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Cibernetico vs Low-Ki
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

~ Another great match up in the IWA World Championship tournament!

~ Good start by DoS’s member Cibernetico, who blocks most of Low-Ki’s quick kicks and palm strikes! When Cibernetico finally strikes he manages to place a big boot in Ki’s face, after one irish whip in the ropes! He adds a High Angle Body Slam to the mix seconds later!

~ Ki manages to execute 2,3 great enzuigiri’s, but again Cibernetico’s size shows it will be the deciding factor here, as he Lariats “the boots off” Ki with a counter, right after Low-KI charges at him!

~ Cibernetico tries the Garra Cibernetica (High Angle Choke Slam) at one point, but Ki fights it off with some Body Kicks!!

~ Cibernetico does a Sidewalk Slam to Ki’s weaken body, and gets ready for his Garra Cibernetica… when Kenny Omega is shown on the TITANTRON, IN FRONT OF CIBERNETICO’S HOTEL ROOM!!!! Kenny look’s like he hasn’t slept for a week.. he enters the room and attacks Cibernetico’s brother who’s watching television, destroying the whole room with his body!!!!!!!! Oh my god… Cibernetico is terrified right now!! Kenny keeps looking at the camera crew behind him, that he obviously threaten before the planned assault, and keeps saying “You cost my dream, I’ll cost you everything…”!!!

~ As Cibernetico looks with disbelieve in the corner, Low-Ki jumps on his feet and rushing into the corner he hits the TIDAL WAVE on his opponent!!! Cibernetico drops on the floor, and Ki finishes him off with the Warrior’s Way from the top rope!! Oh, that was a sick impact… we have a pin attempt.. 1,2,3 DONE!!! Low-Ki won his spot in the Heavyweight tournament!


Winner: Low-Ki via pinfall (09:30) ***



• We see MVP & Maria Kanellis exiting MVP’s locker room, talking about something (maybe going out to “catch on”).. when from behind Carlito attacks MVP and hits a Backstabber on his foe!!! Carlito looks at the downed MVP, then takes a peak at Maria…

Carlito (Smiling)
“Now that…. That’s COOL!”





~~~~~~~
MAIN EVENT
Non-Title Street Fight
Batista’s Ring Debut
Dave Batista vs Roderick Strong
~~~~~~~


MAIN MOMENTS

~ Batista controls almost the whole match!

~ At one point Roderick brings a steel chair into the ring, but gets dropped with it, by a Big Boot from Batista!

~ Batista tries to hit Roderick with the Steel Chair, but the second pulls a Drop Toe Hold out of nowhere.. and Batista hits his face into the chair, while falling on the mat!

~ Roderick (who actually gets support from the fans… he’s a heel) tries almost everything in his arsenal, but Batista manages to counter it all! Batista keeps imposing his will until the end, mainly because of his strength!

~ In the middle of the match, the already badly hurt Roderick (because of the attack last week) hits his Sick Kick, Enzuigiri combination, and for a moment there it looks like he’ll bring the Animal down. Roderick forces himself in the ropes again charging at the kneeling Batista.. BUT GETS BURRIED with a sick SPINEBUSTER on the way back!!!! Batista quickly lifts him back up, and forces him into the corner with a HUGE TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB!!! Man, Rody gets destroyed with that..

~ Batista gets the Steel Chair and places it in the middle of the ring, after which he executes A VICIOUS BATISTA BOMB ON IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Roderick is done… 1,2,3!!!!!! Batista won his debut.. The Animal is really here to stay!! What a dominance!


Winner: Batista via pinfall (14:10) ***3/4

• Batista climbs almost every turnbuckle, taunting the fans while smiling!!! What a moment for DoS… but wait what is this… a man jumps out of the crowd and positions himself next to the ropes, behind Batista….. HUGEEEEEEEEEEE POP FROM THE FANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT’S AJ STYLES!!!!!!!!!!!! What is he doing here!?
• OH MY GOD AJ STYLES IS IN IWA!!!!!!!!!! The crowd start chanting “AJ, AJ, AJ!!!”, as Batista turns around and gets dropped by a Huge Springboard Elbow Strike!!!!!!!!!!!



Oh, what an Impact!!! AJ taunts the crowd, which are exploding right now!!! Batista gets on his feet slowly and angry, but right before he drops AJ with a Lariat, FROM OUT OF NOWHERE THE ANIMAL GETS PUSHED ASIDE WITH A HUGE SHOULDERBLOCK FROM HERNANDEZ!!!!!!!!!!

- The show quickly opens up with Batista’s music!! “The Animal” looks very angry as he walks towards the ring.. this should be interesting folks! Phili welcomes "The Animal" with a lot of "Boo's"!

Batista (After grabbing the microphone)
“SHUT UP!! (Heat from the crowd).. AJ Styles, Hernandez.. and that other dwarf, who the hell do you think you are, attacking me from behind last week, like a bunch of b*tches!?? WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE!? I demand, you come out this instant and explain yourselves, before me and my brothers come looking for you, which believe me won’t end very well… WAITING!”

- An unknown music hits and AJ Styles, Daniels & Hernandez all come out on the entrance ramp..

AJ Styles (Getting a microphone)
“No… who the hell do YOU think you are!? Ah? So let me get this straight Batista, you came out of that other “organization”, where you became that “Huge Superstar” and felt free to foul our backyard.. to suddenly DEMAND things? Is that it? The guys you see before you - me, Daniels & Hernandez built Independent wrestling, we paved the way for a lot of wrestlers, while you were kissing Triple H’s ass!.. (The crowd laughs)”

Batista (While hovering angry around)
“What did you just say…”

AJ Styles
“You heard me very clearly, big man! It’s time for you to go.. it’s time for us to take the garbage out of our own house! And believe me we will succeed! These people made me and my brothers what we are today and we plan returning the favor… VERY SOON! (Throwing the mic aside)“

- AJ Styles and Batista stare each other down like gunslingers for some time, until AJ, Daniels & Hernandez decide to walk away! Batista is still standing next to the ropes, looking at the ramp, with disbelieve…




- We see Carlito backstage, bragging about beating up MVP last week to some wrestlers, when an IWA official rushes into the locker room and tells him that there is a problem with his car of some sort… Carlito quickly jumps from the bench and runs to the parking lot with the official, where he sees MVP braking his Chevrolet’s windows with a tire iron!

Carlito (Screaming at MVP)
“Wow, wow, wow… what are you doing you crazy hooligan!? That’s my damn car… really NOT COOL!! (he said it :()”

MVP (Starting to walk with an angry look towards Carlito, with the tire iron in his right hand)
“Not cool!?... Come here and I’ll show you what’s cool, you backstabbing son of a b*tch!”

Carlito (Walking slowly away, scared)
“Now.. now.. put the tire iron away MVP and we’ll talk about it! (Pushing the official at MVP, after which running away)”

MVP (Helping the official up to his feet)
“You ok?.. (Looking at Carlito) THIS AIN`T OVER!”



~~~~~~~~~~
3 WAY Tag Team Bout
World’s Greatest Tag Team (Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas)
Vs
Briscoe Brothers (Jay & Mark Briscoe)
Vs
The Killers (Jon Moxley & Joker)
~~~~~~~~~~
MAIN MOMENTS

~ The match starts out strong for the World’s Greatest Tag Team who quickly take out most of the participants from behind in the commotion, at the beginning (they enter the arena last). Jay Briscoe is the only wrestler left in the ring. Shelton & Haas quickly Irish Whip him into the ropes and plant him with a Double Team Back Elbow when he returns. Shelton charges from the ropes and hits the downed Briscoe with a Running Front Dropkick in the face, right after. Haas finishes the combo by locking the Haas of Pain!! Oh, that could be it.. Haas uses his finisher early on in the match!! Mark manages to stop the move seconds later…

~ Moxley & Joker manage to pull Shelton Benjamin from the ring to the outside. The Killers quickly push with force their foe into the ring barricade and enter the ring again. They Irish whip Haas into the corner, after which they hit him with a couple of charging Elbows and Body Splashes! Haas is down! Mark Briscoe manages to climb one of the turnbuckles behind The Killers, while they are busy beating Haas up! Mark hits both Joker & Moxley with a High Crossbody Block from the top after they finally turn around towards him.

~ Briscoes destroy Moxley with a vicious Double Team Brainbuster seconds later, but the incoming (from outside) Shelton Benjamin manages to plant Mark Briscoe with a Springboard Missile Dropkick! Mark fells on the floor outside after that attack.. Jay quickly grabs Shelton, butterflying his arms and hits a vicious Tiger Driver on his victim!! Only 2 count… Haas stops the fall attempt!

~ Haas dumps Jay with a High Angle Belly to Belly Suplex into the corner, when from out of nowhere Moxley annihilates him with a Jumping Yakuza Kick!! Wow, that’s gotta hurt! Joker quickly lifts Haas’s remains on his shoulders and finishes the wrestler off with his sick Joker Driver!!! That’s it.. The Killers won this one.. 1….2…… 2.999999999999999999999!!!!!!! Noooooooo, Shelton manages to stop the fall in the last moment by jumping in!!

~ The Killers & Shelton fight some more. Shelton manages to throw Joker outside the ring, after which he and Moxley start applying some pinning combinations on each other, before from behind, Mark Briscoe succeeds in pushing away Moxley and pinning Shelton Benjamin with a nice looking Gannosuke Clutch! FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! 1,2,3! DONE, THE BRISCOES MANAGED TO TAKE THAT IMPORTANT WIN! What a match… Shelton looks surprised after the bout (about being pinned), while the Briscoes celebrate with the crowd.


Winners: The Briscoe Brothers via pinfall (14:02) ***1/2



- Jim Cornette’s music hits and he enters the ring. The IWA General Manager doesn’t look happy at all! He grabs a microphone and immediately asks Kenny Omega to come down to the ring! We remind you that, Kenny Omega attacked Cibernetico’s brother in his hotel room last week, after Cibernetico have cost him a shot in the IWA Heavyweight tournament. The feud between the two is boiling ever since and Omega needs to face the consequences from his actions right now!

Kenny Omega (Entering the ring, while the fans cheer for him..)
“(With a serious voice) I screwed up, Jim! I know that now.. and I should not blame anyone but me. I went too far.. just please make it quick and do what you have to do. If it’s time for me to go… then I’ll go!”

Jim Cornette
“What happened to you Kenny? One of our brightest stars.. the future of this company.. beating guys from behind in their hotel rooms, and for what... REVANGE!?? That’s not who you are kid, I’m very disappointed! You left me no choice with that move!”

Kenny Omega
“I’m disappointed at myself too, Jim.. but I can't bring back the past! So say what you need to say.. do what you need to do, and let's end this!”

- Cibernetico’s music hits and he comes out on the entrance ramp with a microphone and a fierce look on his face…

Cibernetico (Towards Omega, with a Latin accent)
“YOU…… ME…. KINGS OF WRESTLING!! IT’S GOING TO END THEN!”

- Cibernetico and Omega stare down for awhile, after which Cibernetico walks away… Cornette doesn’t say anything else, maybe that’s a sign that it isn't over between the two?



~~~~~~~~~~
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Chris Hero vs Shingo
~~~~~~~~~~
MAIN MOMENTS

~ It’s time for The IWA World Championship tournament to continue with an explosive match between Chris Hero & Shingo!

~ Both begin the match with a lot of tie ups and feelers. Shingo opens up after awhile with some armdrags and armlocks on his opponent.

~ Hero comes back in the match after a little while, with some elbows and knees. At one point he sends Shingo into the turnbuckle, but screws up the following charge.. Shingo manages to block it with a big boot. Shingo forces himself towards the stunned Hero with a clothesline, but the second counters in motion with a great Powerslam for a 2 count!

~ At one point Shingo tries to put away Hero with a few slaps & elbows + A Falcon Arrow. The second blocks the Falcon arrow, by landing behind Takagi and trying his Hero’s Welcome finishing move!! Shingo blocks it…

~ Shingo manages to hit the Blood Fall (Torture Rack into a Facebuster combination) and to finish the combo with a Running Sick Kick but Hero kicks out. Shingo sends his opponent into the turnbuckle after that and taunts the crowd.. he wastes some time with his "acting", after which he charges towards the corner…… ROARING ELBOW!!!!!!!!! Roaring elbow from out of nowhere by Hero!!! He catches the charging Shingo by surprise! Quick pin attempt on Shingo.. 1…2…3!!!!!! Just like that, Hero continues into the tournament.. what a win!! Shingo is still knocked out on the ground!


Winner: Chris Hero via pinfall (09:10) ***


- The color commentators inform us that at “SLING BLADE #4”, the last Sling Blade before “KINGS OF WRESTLING” (IWA’s biggest PPV), the main event would be a 3 Way Match for IWA’s PURE TITLE.. which is vacant at the moment. Homicide will go against Chris Hero and Hiroshi Tanahashi in a 3 way bout, to determine the first ever IWA PURE CHAMPION!



~~~~~~~~~~
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Shane Helms vs Claudio Castagnoli
~~~~~~~~~~
MAIN MOMENTS

~ The newest signing to the roster - Shane Helms receives a good pop from the crowd while coming out! An interesting debut for him, a match against one of the top dogs in IWA - Claudio Castagnoli, in the World Championship Tournament!

~ Castagnoli starts cheaply by hitting Helms with some “clubs” to the head and back, after faking a handshake! He quickly opens up with some Back Body Drops and clotheslines… Not a good start for Helms!

~ Helms is still in trouble as he gets planted with a high angle Bodyslam by Castagnoli + a Leg Drop right after, for a two count!

~ Helms manages to offer some resistance after hitting Castagnoli with some counter Spinning Wheel Kicks and Enzuigiri’s. Castagnoli gets into one of the corners stunned, but catches the incoming Helms by the throat and manages to plant him immediately with an European Upercut!

~ Castagnoli tries the Ricola, but gets slammed on his back with a Back Body Drop!! Helms adds a DDT to the mix, but only for a two count!

~ Castagnoli counters Helm’s charge again and tries the Alpamare Waterslide, but again gets countered with some elbows… Helms charges at the ropes and returns with a nice Headscissors Takedown! Helms immediately tries his Shinning Wizard, but Castagnoli ducks and hits Shane with a German Suplex for a 2 count!

~ Castagnoli tries the Ricola for a second time, but Helms counters it in the air with a Harricanrana into a pin attempt predicament! 1…2..3!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW, he got him!!! From out of nowhere what a counter by the debutting Shane Helms, as he continues in the World Championship tournament! Both Shingo & Castagnoli lost their spots in the tournament! Good back and forward match…


Winner: Shane Helms via pinfall (10:40) ***3/4



- Batista enters Jim Cornette’s office rapidly!!

Jim Cornette (Looking at "The Animal" suspiciously)
“Now… now.. I don’t want no trouble, ok!?”

Batista (Smiling)
“Just tell me who’s my opponent in the tournament next week!’

Jim Cornette
“I’m not allowed to tell you, you know that.. (Batista looks at him angry).. ah ok, whatever, anything to keep you off my back! It’s Eddie Edwards.. why do you want that information so bad!”

Batista
“It’s going to be AJ Styles.. ok! AJ Styles will be my opponent in the tournament.. and I want him next week!”

Jim Cornette
“Well I can’t do this big man, the match against Edwards has been already booked. I can’t kick him out from the tournament just like that! There are rules!”

Batista (Exiting the room)
“Don’t worry about Edwards i'll take care of him.. just book the match! I want that red neck son of a b*tch Styles in the ring next week!! GOT IT? Good…”



- Homicide is shown “trashing” his Stablemates after their loss, in the locker room area…

Homicide
“Yo, I can’t believe that Jay… you said not to worry and now the title shot for those tag team belts is history, forget about it! It’s gone! What happened?.. How the hell did you lost such an important match!?”

Joker (Holding an ice pack on his neck)
“Cornette, that punk booked us in a three way.. wasn’t fair man! I mean, if we were to face The Briscoes or WGTT separately, just two on two..”

Homicide (Interupting him)
“… LIFE ISN’T FAIR, Bro! Life isn't fair! (Looking at Moxley) What happened out there superstar.. why didn’t you win? Too much for you?”

Jon Moxley
“He just told you what happened! Why, you think if you were in that match tonight, things could have ended differently, is that it “bro”? Is that what you think?”

Homicide
“I KNOW they would have ended differently! Don’t doubt me boy.. just enjoy my match next week, when I'll WIN the Pure title!! I’ll show you exactly how it has to be done! Just watch!”

- Moxley and Homicide stare down at the end of that statement, after which Homicide walks away from the locker room throwing stuff around!



~~~~~~~~~~
IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)
Delirious vs Kenny King
~~~~~~~~~~
MAIN MOMENTS

~ Nice little back and forward match between King and Delirious. Delirious controls most of the match and Kenny’s main offence consist counters and cheap shots. Kevin Steen is in King’s corner! The PiTbulls are always together when it's all about business...

~ Towards the end Delirious manages to hit the Panic Attack, after King misses with the Coronation! Delirious quickly climbs the top rope to finish the match with his finisher Shadows over hell, but Kevin Steen (King’s partner) interferes while the referee is checking Kenny's condition in the middle of the ring, by throwing Delirious on his back from the turnbuckle!

~ Kenny hits the Coronation (Torture Rack into a DDT combo) moments later and takes the win!! Kenny King moves forward in the tournament! Delirious has been screwed by The PiTbulls!


Winner: Kenny King via pinfall (06:20) ***



- The CZW Heavyweight Champion Fantastico is standing backstage next to the newest edition to the IWA, and the newly assigned backstage reporter – Maria Kanellis!

Maria Kanellis
“I’m standing backstage with the CZW World Heavyweight Champion – Fantastico, who is scheduled to wrestle tonight, participating in the IWA World Championship tournament, in a match against Drake Younger! I’ll let you hear it all from the champion himself, about his upcoming bout and more! Hi!”

Fantastico (Pointing his belt)
“Do you know what it represents, Maria… that belt represents greatness! And that’s what I’m all about.. one word, say it with me.. GREATNESS! Yes! I’ve wrestled Drake Younger before, hell I took that belt away from him, and now I’ll do the same in the IWA.. i’ll take away his dreams and passion for the business, because I’m simply FANTASTIC… and nobody can’t argue with that! Huh..”

Maria Kanellis
“Bold statement from the champion! Back to you, Kevin Kelly…”



- Eddie Edwards is talking to his partner and NEW NWA WORLD CHAMPION Colt Cabana backstage.. when from out of nowhere Batista and DoS members UltraMantis Black and Austin Aries attack both of them! Black & Aries beat down Cabana in on corner, while Batista trashes the place with Edwards body.. At the end of the assault we see Batista Powerbombing Edwards hard through some steel pipes!! Oh, what a beatdown! Edwards has been destroyed by "The Animal"!

Batista (Looking intensely at his DoS stablemates)
“I told him not to worry about a punk like Edwards! THAT’S HOW IT’S DONE, BOYS!”

IWA World Championship Tournament Match (ROUND 1)

That one is in the history books, Fantastico pulls the victory and continues in the tournament! Intense match between the two..


Winner: Fantastico via pinfall (11:45) ****



- We see Davey Richards & Hiroshi Tanahashi meeting with the newest force in IWA, AJ Styles, Daniels & Hernandez or as they call themselves “The All Rounders”, backstage!

Davey Richards (Mistrustful)
“We don’t know what you guys represent and frankly we don’t care that much! We just want to know will you have our backs out there tonight?.. Especially you AJ, since you are our partner?”

AJ Styles
“Our goals are the same for now, right? We’ll have your backs.. our business and problems aren’t with you Davey!”

Davey Richards
“Just wanted to make sure! You know how it is in the wrestling business... one day you're laughing at each others jokes, the next your "buddy" stomps a mud hole in your face, because of money, greed or jealousy. There aren't many friends in wrestling, especially here!”

Daniels
“What about that other guy on your team.. Roderick Strong? I don’t see you asking him that! I don't see you doubting him as you're doing that with us right now!?”

Davey Richards
“Let me worry about him.. (to Tanahashi) Let’s go, brother..”



~~~~~~~~~~
MAIN EVENT
Tag Team Elimination Match
DoS (Batista, Cibernetico, Austin Aries, UltraMantis Black) vs. AJ Styles, Davey Richards, Roderick Strong & Hiroshi Tanahashi

MAIN MOMENTS

~ AJ Styles & Austin Aries are the first legal tags, the crowd is hot for this one!

~ AJ flips his opponent a couple of times with some armdrags while both try to take the momentum in the beginning! After one flip Aries escapes the ring to take a breath, when from out of nowhere, “The Phenomenal One” AJ Styles does a unbelievable Springboard Shooting Star Press to the outside striking Aries down with the move. HUGE reaction from the crowd!

~ Tanahashi & UltraMantis Black are tagged in.. Both tie up a couple of times. Tanahashi makes some good pinning attempts from the “German Suplex” belly to back position.. in the end he tries to finish the German Suplex, but Black blocks it with his leg and pulls an Inside Cradle from out of nowhere… 2 count!!

~ Black manages to hit the Divinity Cove at one point (Pumphandle DVD) on Tanahashi, after which he tags Cibernetico in.

~ Roderick hits Cibernetico with a couple of backbreakers, after which he taunts Batista surprisingly and “invites” him into the ring. Batista tags Cibernetico and angrily rushes with force Roderick into one of the corners! Batista hits a couple of Shoulderblocks and tries his Turnbuckle Powerbomb! Strong blocks it and by landing on his feet behind “The Animal”, manages to hit a Neckbreaker from out of nowhere.. 2 count!

Batista grabs Davey in the air and crushes him down like a doll on the mat with a huge Arm Slam! 1…2… 2.99999999!! Close fall!

~ Batista dumps Richards with a Standing Spinebuster after that and tags Aries in!

~ Aries locks the Horns of Aries on Richards and tries to submit him for a while, in a crazy scramble we see Richards locking the Kimura from that position, countering Aries’s move. Nice reverse! Cibernetico brakes the submission moments later… Quickly AJ Styles, Strong & Tanahashi all hit the ring!! DoS members follow their example and a MAJOR BRAWL unleashes first in the ring (then to the outside)! Obviously, the nerves and egoes couldn’t be controlled anymore! While almost everybody fights around the ring and entrance ramp, Batista finally puts his hands on AJ Styles… The Animal brings AJ in the ring and after a big kick to the gut he tries to destroy him with the Batista bomb!! Ohhhhhhhh… AJ MANAGES to counter it in motion, while Batista is lifting him for his finisher, with a crazy looking Hurricanrana, which sends Batista flying to the ouside!!!

~ AJ hits the charging UltraMantis Black with a Superkick and after pointing at Batista he destroys the DoS member with the Styles Clash!!!



~ Huge impact!! The referee finally ends that crazy brawl and situation with a No Contest decision, after which IWA officials and security guards hit the ring to calm the “area” down a bit!


Winners: No Contest!! (20:23) ****

- DoS and the opposition are pouring insults and threats after the bout at one another! DJ Hyde, DoS’s leader is shown watching that deranged moment backstage… After some cursing he turns off the monitor/tv set and walks angrily into his office..

DJ Hyde (Turning on the lights into his office)
“Damn those punks ruined my night… (Shocked, looking at the 3 men standing in front of him) What the..”


Cary Silkin (IWA’s main Shareholder)
“How are you… Hyde?”
