Steen pulled him shoulder-first into the ring post and got in the ring. Steen twisted the arm around the ropes and pulled. Steen took him down and taunted him. He followed up with a sexton splash that was good for another two count. Steen applied an arm bar on Omega, but Omega fought up and hit a jawbreaker.

Steen charged for a cannon ball, but Omega moved!
The men moved back into the ring and Kevin went for the superplex, but Omega punched him. Omega hit a sunset flip and followed up with a turnbuckle power bomb. Steen quickly popped out with a super kick and went for the pin again!
Steen couldn't believe it. He shook his head while he climbed the top rope. Omega cut him off, and they started fighting it out on the top rope. Steen head butted Omega and tried for a fisherman's suppler, but Omega got out. Omega scaled the ropes, but Steen crotched him on the top turnbuckle. Steen went for the moonsault, but Omega moved out of the way! Steen stumbled to his feet and walked right into the one-winged angel! Omega hooked the leg.

The team of Priscilla Kelly and Ivelisse came to the ring first, followed by Candice LeRae and Mandy Rose.
Priscilla started things off against Mandy Rose, and both women locked up as Rose hit a fireman's carry into an armor. Priscilla got back to her feet, and Mandy pulled her hair, only for Priscilla to hit an arm drag and a dropkick.

Corey Graves: This is the second time Hardcore Holly has challenged for the Breakout Title... can the veteran capture the gold here tonight?
After Holly had entered the ring, "Moments" by Sevendust hit and the crowd cheered as Aiden English stepped out onto the stage. English grinned and held the Breakout Title up in the air, then made his way down the ramp.
Mauro Ranallo: Well Corey, Aiden English looks confident of another victory here tonight!
Corey Graves: English is on double duty tonight... he'll also be part of "Team EBWF" in the main event!
After English had entered the ring, Christy Hemme introduced both superstars. The referee held up the title, then called for the bell. English went for a lock up, but Holly grabbed the arm and applied an arm twist, then hit English with a stiff kick to the midsection. Holly hit English a series of right hands, then whipped him into the corner. Holly hit English with some more right hands, then sat him on the top rope, setting him up for a superplex.

Corey Graves: Impressive resilience from Aiden English... he'll need more of that later when he goes toe to toe with LEGION!
Christy Hemme: The following contest is scheduled for one fall...
The lighting in the arena changed from normal to different shades of blue as “Recognition” by CFO$ hit the PA System. Automatically, the reaction from the crowd changed to an extremely hostile reaction. The reaction only intensified once Charlotte Flair made her way onto the entrance stage with Zelina Vega. On the stage, Charlotte stopped in order to extend her arms and did a slow 360 before making her way down the entrance ramp with Zelina.
Christy Hemme: Introducing first… Accompanied by Zelina Vega… From the Queen City… Charlotte FLAIR!!!”
Mauro: Last month on Warfare, Charlotte Flair took on her opponent here tonight, Becky Lynch, and Becky managed to beat Charlotte.
Corey: The Queen didn’t take too kindly to Becky’s boasting and has repeatedly put Becky in her place. Tonight, I think she’ll prove once and for all that Becky is nowhere near her league.
Once Charlotte made it to ringside, she unzipped her entrance robe and climbed up onto the apron before entering the ring. “Recognition” by CFO$ cut out and the crowd continued booing Charlotte before breaking out into chants of ‘We Want Becky!'
Mauro: And now, Charlotte waits on her opponent.
Corey: It’s not proper to keep royalty waiting.
“Also Sprach Zarathustra” hit the PA System and the crowd let out a ‘WOOOOOOOOO’ while Charlotte cocked an eyebrow. She was wondering what the hell was going on.
Mauro: What’s going on here? Why is that song playing?
Corey: Yeah, what’s the meaning of this?
The group of druids came walking out onto the stage, but the didn’t come alone. Oh no, these druids came out onto the stage carrying a coffin. When they made it to center stage, the druids propped the casket upright.
Mauro: And now a casket? It’s been propped upright.
Corey: Oh, no. This can’t be good.
The lid to the coffin popped off, and it was revealed that it was none other than Becky Lynch inside of the coffin. The instrumental version of Eminem’s “In Your Head” hit the PA System and Becky stepped out of the coffin with a zombie-like appearance and a stoic look on her face while wearing a duplicate of Charlotte’s robe, greeted by thunderous cheers from the crowd. Meanwhile, Charlotte and Zelina went ballistic over what Becky had done while Becky began walking down the entrance ramp, glaring a hole through Charlotte.
Christy: Her opponent… From Dublin, Ireland… She is the Queen Slayer, BECKY LYNCH!!!
Mauro: There’s Becky Lynch but wait a minute. What’s she doing? Is she… wearing a robe like Charlotte’s?
Corey: She’s making a mockery of the Queen!
Becky made to ringside and was confronted by Zelina, who wasn’t having any of this mockery of the Queen. Becky took off her robe and dropped it to the floor. She revealed that she was wearing the exact same attire that was wearing for this match.
Mauro: Not only is she wearing a robe identical to Charlotte’s, but she’s wearing the exact same attire as Charlotte.
Corey: This is wrong. Charlotte is royalty! You don’t mock royalty!
Zelina decided to throw a punch at Becky, but Becky blocked it and punched Zelina hard in the face. The punch cause Zelina to fall right on her ass and the crowd cheered. The referee quickly left the ring before it could escalate and ordered Zelina to leave. Zelina protested, but Becky decided to help her by throwing her away with the Bexploder, and the crowd cheered while “In Your Head (Instrumental)” by Eminem cut out.
Mauro: Becky just took out Zelina!
Corey: You don’t do that to a royal subject!
The referee entered the as did Becky and the bell sounded. Charlotte was the first to make a move as she charged at Becky and attempted a clothesline. However, Becky had the wherewithal to not only duck, but to also send Charlotte to the outside with a back body drop. As luck would have it, Charlotte somehow landed on her feet. Becky ran to the opposite end of the ring and bounced off the ropes. Right when Charlotte turned around, Becky ran up and dove through the ropes – taking Charlotte with a suicide dive as the crowd cheered.
Mauro: Becky with a… Suicide Dive?
Corey: She’s desperate. When you’re desperate, you will do anything.
On the outside, Becky was the first to get to her feet and then Charlotte got to her feet. When Charlotte got to his feet, her back was facing Becky. So Becky turned her around and slapped her chest while the crowd let out a collective “WOO!” After that, Becky punched Charlotte in the stomach and grabs her by the head. With Charlotte’s head in her hands, she rammed Charlotte face-first into the steel steps, knocking her for a bit of a loop. Becky slapped Charlotte’s chest again and the crowd let out another collective “WOO” as Charlotte stumbled and found herself propped up against the ring apron. With Charlotte propped up against the ring apron, Becky grabbed her by the hair and her tights just to roll her into the ring before she slid into the ring after Charlotte.
Mauro: As expected. This match is starting off aggressively.
Corey: Why wouldn’t it? These two hate each other.
After Becky slid into the ring and got to her feet, Charlotte got to her feet. As Becky approached Charlotte, the latter backed away – in fact, she backed away so much that she backed herself into a corner and she pleaded with Becky as Becky approached her. However, it was only a ploy as Charlotte kicked Becky in the stomach. Charlotte went for another kick, but the kick was caught by Becky and Charlotte hopped on one foot out of the corner because Becky pulled her to the center of the ring. With Charlotte in the center of the ring – and while Becky held Charlotte’s foot, causing her to hop – Becky swept Charlotte’s free leg out from under her, causing her to drop to her back on the mat. With Charlotte in such a position, Becky set her leg on the mat and dropped her knee from an elevated position onto Charlotte’s leg as the crowd gave her a positive reaction. After the knee drop to her leg, Charlotte screamed in pain as she rolled over and sat up. She tried to back away from Becky, but Becky grabbed the leg that she just attacked – Charlotte’s left leg to be exact – and she placed Charlotte into the spinning toe hold and transitioned it to an Indian Deathlock, causing Charlotte to continue screaming pain.
Mauro: Becky’s been working on Charlotte’s legs, and now has her in an Indian Deathlock.
Corey: This is smart on the part of Becky Lynch. If Charlotte’s legs don’t work, then she can’t lock in the Figure Eight or drop the Lass Kicker with the Natural Selection.
While in excruciating pain, Charlotte sat up only to be knocked back down with a hard slap to the face from Becky. Again, Charlotte sat up only to be knocked back down with another hard slap to the face from Becky. The referee asked her if she wanted to quit and Charlotte yelled “NO!!!” Becky continued to apply pressure to the hold. The hold stayed on for another few moments until Charlotte raked Becky across the eyes thus effectively getting Becky to release the hold. Becky was the first to her feet, and Charlotte got to her feet not too long after Becky – albeit Charlotte’s hopping on one foot, feeling the effects of the punishment that her leg took. Charlotte hobbled over to the ropes and propped herself upright. Becky approached her and attempted to whip her to the ropes, but Charlotte reversed and sent Becky to the ropes instead. After Becky bounced off the ropes, Charlotte caught her with a sleeper hold as the crowd booed. Becky started flailing a little once she was put into the sleeper hold, but the flailing toned down after a few moments as the circulation to her brain was cut off.
Mauro: Charlotte has gained control of this match now that she has Becky in a Sleeper Hold.
Corey: This is smart. Becky was working on Charlotte’s legs and now Charlotte’s trying to buy time to heal.
Charlotte continued to apply pressure to Becky with the sleeper hold, and it looked as though that she drifted in and out. Just when Charlotte thought that she was out, Becky surprised Charlotte by turning the sleeper hold into a side headlock before she ran Charlotte to the corner and rams her head into the top turnbuckle – effectively severing the hold that Charlotte had her in. After being rammed into the turnbuckle, Charlotte limped out of the corner and continued to hop on one leg. Becky came up behind Charlotte and kicked her bad leg. This sent Charlotte to the mat while screaming in pain as the crowd gave Becky a reaction reaction. Becky grabbed the ankle of Charlotte’s bad leg – her left leg – and slid out of the ring with it. With Charlotte’s left ankle in her grasp outside of the ring, Becky elevated it and dropped it. This forced the back of Charlotte’s knee to bang against the apron, and caused Charlotte to yell in pain.
Mauro: Becky is at her most dangerous when she realizes that she’s in control, especially when she’s weakened a limb on her opponent.
Corey: I hate to give her credit, but Becky is very smart to attack Charlotte’s legs like I said earlier.
Becky slid back into the ring under the bottom rope and the referee chided her for the apron-based attack. Becky ignored the referee as she approached the corner that Charlotte had just seated herself in. With Becky approaching, Charlotte tried to get her to back off, but to no avail. Becky grabbed Charlotte’s bad leg while Charlotte used her hands to climb to the top turnbuckle and Becky pulled Charlotte’s bad leg, forcing Charlotte out of the corner and Charlotte dropped to her back on the mat. Becky ran to the ropes as Charlotte sits up. After she bounced off of the ropes, Becky caught Charlotte with a big boot and it dropped her back to the mat. With Charlotte back on the mat, Becky immediately grabbed Charlotte’s bad leg and she placed Charlotte into a Single-Leg Boston Crab and Charlotte started yelling in pain once again as the crowd cheered.
Mauro: Becky has Charlotte in the half-crab!
Corey: No! Come on, Charlotte!
Becky applied pressure to the Single-Leg Boston Crab as Charlotte continued yelling in pain. The referee askdc Charlotte if she wanted to give up and she yelled out “NO!”Charlotte found a way to grab Becky’s long orange hair and she gave it a tug as the referee yelled at her. Charlotte backed off at the count of four. Charlotte grabbed Becky’s hair again and this time, Becky turned Charlotte back over onto her back. Becky placed Charlotte into another spinning toe hold and it forced Charlotte to relinquish the hold that she had on Becky’s hair. Charlotte wasn’t in the move for long as she used her free leg to kick Becky off of her. Charlotte got to her feet and hopped around before Becky grabbed her bad leg – her left leg – and she dropped to the mat again. Using Charlotte’s bad leg, Becky placed her into the Figure Four leglock and Charlotte again screamed in pain while the crowd lets out a “WOO!”
Mauro: Becky now has Charlotte in the Figure Four Leglock!
Corey: Oh, come on! It’s bad enough that Becky is dressed like a zombie Charlotte. Now, she has to use the move made famous by Charlotte’s father?
The referee asked Charlotte if she wanted to give up and she yelled out “NO” as she made a reach for the ropes. Charlotte continued to writhe in pain while Becky continued to apply pressure to the hold. Charlotte inched herself closer and closer until she ultimately grabbed the bottom rope with both hands. The referee started the count. ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! Not even counting to five, the referee physically loosened the hold the Becky had Charlotte trapped in. Becky got to her feet and she got right into the referee’s face. She yelled at him before approaching Charlotte. As she approached Charlotte, Charlotte grabbed Becky and sent her through the ropes to the outside. Becky landed on all fours outside of the ring while Charlotte rolled out of the ring and dropped to a seated position.
Mauro: Now both women are on the outside. The first to get to her feet will have the distinct advantage.
Corey: With the damage that Charlotte has sustained, I wouldn’t be surprised if Becky made it to her feet first.
Charlotte hobbled to her feet right at the same time that Becky made it to her feet. With one leg, Charlotte grabbed Becky by the head and rammed her face-first into the steel steps. After being force-fed the steel steps, Becky dropped to the floor while Charlotte dropped to her knees. They showed a replay of how violently the face of Becky hit the steel steps. When brought back to the live action, Charlotte rammed Becky face-first into the steel steps once again. Charlotte backed off and rolled into the ring at the count of seven before rolling back out of the ring. When she returned to the outside, Charlotte – with the aid of the apron – hobbled over to Becky and rammed her face-first into the steel steps again. With Becky reeling for the moment, Charlotte rolled back into the ring and hobbled over to the corner in order to keep herself upright.
Mauro: With one leg, Charlotte is fighting back.
Corey: An animal is always more dangerous when it’s injured.
Becky used the bottom rope to climb up onto the apron and she rolled into the ring. Once Becky rolled into the ring, Charlotte was ready for her as he brought Becky to her feet and backed her into the ropes. With Becky leaning over the top rope, Charlotte clobbered her with a forearm to her chest and Becky dropped to all fours. Charlotte brought Becky to her feet and grabbed her by the head. While holding Becky by the head, Charlotte hopped over to the corner and rammed Becky’s face into the top turnbuckle – causing Becky to drop to the mat. Charlotte brought Becky back to her feet and placed her into an arm wringer. With Becky in the arm wringer, Charlotte pulled her hair and sent her to the mat. With Becky on the mat, Charlotte kicked her arm and backed away on one leg to the ropes. Becky moved to the ropes opposite of Charlotte and started pulling herself up. Charlotte charged at Becky with one leg and clotheslined her over the top rope, sending her to the outside.
Mauro: Charlotte has taken control of this match, one leg and all.
Corey: Again, an animal that’s injured…
With Becky on the outside, the referee started counting. ONE! TWO! THREE! Becky started to stir. FOUR! Becky was on all fours and made it up to her feet. FIVE! Charlotte grabbed Becky by the hair and pulled her back into the ring. With Becky in her clutches in the ring, Charlotte dropped her with a snapmare and grabbed the arm that she was working on earlier. With Becky’s arm in her grasp, Charlotte placed her arm into an armbar and it’s Becky that started screaming in pain. The referee asked her if she wanted to give up and Becky colorfully yelled “FOOK NO!” Charlotte took this as her cue to apply more pressure to the hold. Charlotte applying more pressure to the armbar was what caused Becky to roll out of the move. Both competitors got to their feet with Becky’s arm still in Charlotte’s grasp, and Charlotte performed an arm wringer only for Becky to punch her in the face – causing Charlotte to release Becky’s arm. Charlotte threw a punch to Becky’s face and Becky returned the gesture by punching Charlotte in the face. Charlotte threw another punch to Becky’s face and Becky returned the gesture by punching Charlotte in the face again.
Mauro: Now, a slugfest has ensued. Neither woman is giving an inch.
Corey: They shouldn’t if they plan on winning.
Becky and Charlotte continued to go back and forth with their punches, but Charlotte got the upper hand when after a right punch, she hit Becky with a left punch, and it knocked Becky for a loop. One more right handed punch from Charlotte sent Becky to the mat and the crowd booed. Becky rolled over onto her feet and was on wobbly legs as she punched Charlotte in the face again. The punch to Charlotte knocks her for a loop as well. Charlotte punched Becky in the face only for Becky to punch her in the face again as well. The two continued to throw punches at each other with Becky getting the edge this time. Charlotte threw a right punch and Becky ducked. Charlotte threw a left punch and Becky ducked again only to catch Charlotte with another punch to the face, and the punch sent Charlotte to the mat. However, Charlotte was smart enough to roll out of the ring before Becky could take advantage.
Mauro: Becky is fighting back, and this match is literally anyone’s match. Becky knocks Charlotte to the mat and Charlotte had the wherewithal to roll out of the ring to recuperate.
Corey: That’s the intelligence of the Queen on display right there. She knew something was coming and did the smart thing.
With Charlotte on the outside, the referee began his count. ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! Charlotte started to stir. SIX! Charlotte was up to one knee. SEVEN! Charlotte was up to her feet and Becky approached the ropes where Charlotte was, but the referee held her back. Becky turned her back and Charlotte entered the ring. Right when Becky turned around, Charlotte caught her with a clothesline. With Becky on her back, Charlotte placed her into the Figure Four and Becky started screaming in pain.
Mauro: Charlotte has Becky in the Figure Four!
Corey: But will Charlotte be able to transition into the Figure Eight?
With the hold expertly applied, Charlotte had Becky writhing in pain. After the referee asked Becky if she wanted to give up, the Queen Slayer screamed: “Piss off!!!” Becky found it within herself to try and fight her way to the ropes. However, right before Becky could get to the ropes, Charlotte transitioned the Figure Four into the Figure Eight, causing Becky to stop and writhe in pain. Charlotte applied more pressure to the hold as the crowd booed heavily.
Mauro: There it is. The Figure Eight!
Corey: The Queen’s got this, now!
Becky started rocking from side to side. This caused Charlotte to lose her balance, and the move was forced with revert to the Figure Four. Becky continue rocking from side to until she was finally able to turn herself and Charlotte over.
Mauro: The tables have turned! Becky has reversed the Figure Eight!
Corey: I don’t believe it!
With the tables turned and Charlotte locked in the reversal of the Figure Four, Becky screamed at her “Give up Charlotte! There’s no way out!” While she’s locked in the reversal of the Figure Four, Charlotte was writhing in pain much like Becky writhed in pain moments before when the Queen Slayer was locked in the Figure Four/Eight. With Charlotte writhing in pain, Becky yelled at the referee to ask her. The referee asked Charlotte and she screamed “NO!” Charlotte attempted to crawl to the ropes and Becky pulled Charlotte back to the center of the ring and applied even more pressure to the hold, causing Charlotte tremendous pain.
Mauro: Now Charlotte may have no choice but to tap out. How humiliating would it be for Charlotte to tap out to a variation of her own hold?
Corey: Very, but I don’t see it happening.
Charlotte again attempted to crawl to the ropes using her forearms. After a huge struggle, Charlotte miraculously made it to the ropes and the referee yelled at Becky to break the hold. After a four count, Becky broke the hold and got right into the referee’s face. With that slight distraction allowing her to recuperate just for a split second, Charlotte attempted a German Suplex. However, in midair, Becky did a flip and landed on her feet behind Charlotte. After landing on her feet behind Charlotte, Becky ran to the ropes and attempted to nail Charlotte with the clothesline when Charlotte turned to face her. Before Becky could connect with the move, Charlotte ducked and Becky continued running. After Becky bounced off the ropes, Charlotte caught her with a Spear. Becky got up to her knees and Charlotte dropped her with the Natural Selection
Mauro: Charlotte just speared Becky out of her boots and now, the Natural Selection!
Corey: This has to be it!
Charlotte went for the pin while hooking the leg. ONE! TWO! THREE-NO! Becky kicked out and the crowd chanted “THIS IS AWESOME!” Charlotte looked up at the referee in disbelief that the Queen Slayer kicked out of the Natural Selection. Charlotte holds up three fingers, because she was assured that Becky was down for the count. As Becky staggered to her feet, Charlotte bounced off the ropes and attempted a clothesline, but Becky ducked. Right when Charlotte turned around, she was kicked in the shin by the Queen Slayer and Charlotte dropped to her knees. With Charlotte on her knees, Becky takes her down with the Natural Selection and the crowd cheered wildly.
Mauro: Becky just used the Natural Selection on Charlotte!
Corey: Oh, come on!
With Charlotte down, Becky went for the pin. ONE! TWO! THREE!!! The bell rang and “In Your Head (Instrumental)” by Eminem hit the PA System while the crowd exploded in cheers.
Christy: The winner of the match… The Queen Slayer, BECKY LYNCH!!!
Mauro: These two waged a war tonight. When the smoke cleared and the dust settled, it was none other than Becky Lynch that managed to pull off the victory.
Corey: I don’t believe this. She beat Charlotte with her own move!
Becky left the ring and walked up the entrance ramp before she stood on the stage. She looked back at the ring before she raised an arm in victory.
After a hard fought match, Andrade Cien Almas defeated Dalton Castle with the Hammerlock DDT, becoming the new EBWF Gateway Champion.
Mauro Ranallo: Up next, the rivalry between Braun Strowman and Tommaso Ciampa continues with an ambulance match!
The camera cut to the side of the ramp, where an ambulance reversed out into the staging area. "Psycho Killer" by Talking Heads hit and the crowd booed as Tommaso Ciampa made his way to the ring. Ciampa had a trolley cart full of weapons with him, which he wheeled down the ramp with him. As he reached the bottom of the ramp, Ciampa unloaded his cart, tossing each of the weapons into the ring. He then rolled into the ring and picked up a crutch as he awaited the arrival of his opponent. "I Am Stronger" by CFO$ hit, and the crowd cheered as Braun Strowman stepped out onto the stage.
Corey Graves: Notice Braun Strowman doesn't bring any weapons with him, Mauro... the only weapons he needs are his fists!
After Strowman had entered the ring, the referee called for the bell. Ciampa ran at Strowman and swung the crutch at him, but Strowman batted the crutch away, then took Ciampa down with a clothesline. As Ciampa got to his feet, Strowman threw him into the corner, then ran at him, hitting a bodypress. Ciampa hit the mat, then rolled out of the ring. Strowman followed Ciampa out of the ring, and as Ciampa walked around the ring he grabbed the trolley cart, showing it towards Strowman. The cart hit Strowman in the ribs, and Ciampa then picked up the ring steps, throwing them at Strowman! The steps hit Strowman in the face, and Strowman stumbled backwards, looking dazed. Ciampa walked towards Strowman and grabbed him, slamming his head off the ring post. Strowman was still standing, and Ciampa hit him with the steps once more, this time knocking him down to the ground.
Mauro Ranallo: Strowman is down, but how is Ciampa planning to get him in that ambulance?
Corey Graves: He'd probably need a dozen men to carry Strowman!
Ciampa looked up towards the staging area, then down at Strowman, seemingly realising he did not have the strength to drag or carry Strowman all the way to the ambulance. He then grabbed the trolley cart, and pulled Strowman to his feet, trying to bundle him into the cart! Strowman was too big for it, and he fought back, grabbing Ciampa and throwing him into the ringside barrier. As Ciampa got to his feet, Strowman lifted him up and carried him towards the ramp, then hit a running powerslam onto the steel ramp!
Mauro Ranallo: Did you hear that? The sound of Ciampa's back connecting with the ramp is reverberating through the arena!
Strowman picked Ciampa up and lifted him over his shoulders, carrying him to the top of the ramp. He grabbed Ciampa by the throat, setting him up for the chokeslam, but Ciampa fought back and kicked Strowman in the ribs, then DDTed him on the top of the ramp. Ciampa dragged Strowman to his feet, and threw him into the stage! The LED lights on the stage flickered as Strowman collided with it.
Corey Graves: Oh my goodness... Ciampa could have broken both the stage and Braun Strowman there!
Strowman struggled to his feet, and Ciampa hit him with a series of punches, pushing him towards the ambulance at the side of the stage as he did so. Strowman stumbled backwards, and Ciampa ran at him, going for a clothesline... but Strowman ducked, and hit a back body drop, launching Ciampa off the stage and onto the ground below!
Mauro Ranallo: Mamma Mia!
Ciampa was down and out, and Strowman climbed off the stage, going to the back of the ambulance and opening the doors. He then returned to Ciampa, pulling him to his feet and dragging him towards the back of the ambulance. Just as Strowman was about to throw Ciampa into the back of the ambulance, Ciampa fought back, slamming Strowman's head off the ambulance. Ciampa then reached inside the ambulance, grabbing a stretcher and drilling it into Strowman's ribs. Strowman leaned over, clutching his ribs, and Ciampa hit him across the back with the stretcher, knocking him down to the ground. Ciampa then grabbed Strowman, setting him up for a piledriver onto the concrete... but Strowman countered with another back body drop!
Corey Graves: Once again, Ciampa's back is slammed onto the concrete!
Mauro Ranallo: He might need an ambulance after that, Corey!
Ciampa was obviously in a lot of pain, and he needed to use the ambulance to pull himself up. Strowman watched him stumble to his feet, then charged at Ciampa, going for a spear. Ciampa moved out of the way at the last second, and Strowman's momentum sent him into the back of the ambulance! Ciampa quickly closed the doors, and the referee called for the bell.
Corey Graves: I don't believe it! Ciampa has won!
Mauro Ranallo: I'm not sure there are any winners in this match, Corey. Both men have been through a war!
As the ambulance drove away with Strowman in the back of it, Ciampa climbed onto the stage and celebrated at the top of the ramp, then walked through the curtain.
The lights in the arena dimmed just before “Crushed” by Parkway Drive blasted onto the sound system. The EBWF Universe erupted in a loud chorus of boos as Alexa Bliss walked out onto the stage. She glared out at the crowd as she stood at the top of the stage.
Mauro Ranallo: Here comes Alexa Bliss.. She’s hoping that tonight will finally be the night that she regains the EBWF Women’s Championship.
Corey Graves: She’s got a tough challenge here tonight.
Alexa waited at the top of the ramp for a few seconds before she finally made her descent down the ramp. The EBWF Universe continued to boo the former women’s champion the entire way down the ramp.
Christy Hemme: Making her way to the ring, from Columbus, Ohio. The one and only, true “Goddess of Professional Wrestling”. EBWF’s uncrowned Women’s Champion.. Aaaallleeexxxxxxaa Bllliiiissssssssss!!!!
She smirked at the announcement of herself as she turned the corner at the end of the aisle. She walked up to the steel steps paused for a second. Alexa climbed the steps and walked along the apron. She entered into the ring and walked up to the ropes and held out her arms. The EBWF Universe continued to boo even when Alexa tried to pose for the fans.
Mauro Ranallo: I don’t think the EBWF Universe are going to be behind anyone in this match.
Corey Graves: I know who I’m behind in this.. Alexa is crazy if she thinks that Zahra is walking out of this match without the EBWF Women’s Championship.
Mauro Ranallo: Well we’re about to fine out.
Just then the lights in the arena went completely out, along with the titan tron. The EBWF Universe’s boos grew louder as they knew what was next. The arena remained in darkness for a few seconds before a few sounds were heard. A faint sound of a chain being drug along, which grew louder over the moments in darkness. A door creaked open seconds before a loud screech was heard. Then suddenly the sound of a door being slammed echoed throughout the arena. The tron flickered to life as “Lost In the Static” blasted onto the sound system. A solo spotlight shined onto the stage as smoke filtered up from the grates of the steel stage.
Corey Graves: Quiet Mauro!! I’m trying to pay attention..
The boos continued to grow as Zahra Schreiber walked out on the stage. The EBWF Women’s Championship strapped around her waist, just above her skin tight black ring gear, with some gold accents. A gold Leviathan cross peeked out on her hip, hidden beneath the strap of the championship. Zahra stopped in the spotlight and listened to the roar of the boos from the EBWF Universe. She turned her head to the left, then to the right. She slowly reached behind her back and unstrapped the EBWF Women’s Championship from her waist. She raised her arm and held the championship in the air and then looked down the ramp at Alexa Bliss.
Christy Hemme: Her opponent, from Saginaw, Michigan.. She is the EBWF Women’s Champion!! Representing Legion.. ZAAHHRRRAAAA SCHREIIBERR!!!!
With the mention of Legion, the EBWF Universe busted out in an even longer chorus of boos. Zahra lowered the championship on to her shoulder before she took her first steps towards the ring. The spotlight followed her as she walked the aisle to the ring. Zahra stopped at the side of the ring and looked at Alexa Bliss, who stood directly in the center of the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: Alexa is showing no fear, as she stands in the center of the ring and waiting for Zahra.
Corey Graves: Is it that she’s showing no fear? Or is she frozen in fear as the pure sight of Zahra Schreiber? I think I see her shaking in her boots..
Alexa waited and watched as Zahra around the ring. Instead of going up the stairs, Zahra continued around the ring and stared into through the ropes at Alexa. She rounded the other side of the ring and walked to the second set of stairs. She began her ascent up the stairs but stopped and looked out at the crowd. She turned her attention back to Alexa and finished her ascent up the steps. She drug her hand along the top rope as she walked the apron. Zahra stopped and turned her body to the rope. She smirked as she looked in at Alexa. The referee stood in the middle as he held a hand to each other women. Zahra put the championship on the top rope and then rested her chin on it, mocking Alexa for a few seconds before she entered the ring. Zahra walked up and stood right against and peered down her nose at the shorter Alexa Bliss.
Mauro Ranallo: The size difference ever apparent with the stare down.
Alexa lifted her head as she raised her gaze to meet Zahra’s. The two stared each other down for a few brief seconds before Zahra smirked once more and lifted the EBWF Women’s Champion into the air once more. Alexa shifted her eyes to the championship belt for a moment and then locked back up with Zahra. The referee put his arms between the two women and attempted to separate them.
Mauro Ranallo: The fire between these two women..
Corey Graves: You can feel the history between these two. Alexa holding back Zahra, until Tommy End set her free. Now is time for Zahra to get her revenge.
Slowly the two women backed away from each other, neither taking their eyes of the other. Zahra handed the championship off to the referee who showed the belt to Alexa. He went to the center of the ring and held the championship high in the air. The EBWF Universe all sat back in the chairs as the referee walked the championship over to the time keeper and handed it off. He walked back to the center of the ring and looked at both women. He gave them each a nod before he signaled for the bell.
Mauro Ranallo: Here we go!!
The two women continued to stare each other down, neither one wanting to make the first move. Alexa looked across the ring intensely as Zahra looked back with a smug grin. The two women walked towards each other, but as they neared, Alexa swung without warning and slapped Zahra across the face. Zahra turned her body to the side and brought her hand to her cheek.
Alexa Bliss: WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?!
Alexa continued to mouth off as Zahra straightened backup. Zahra lowered her hand from her cheek and she shook her head slightly. Zahra balled up her right fist. She twisted her body and put the weight as she swung and punched Alexa square in the jaw. Alexa stumbled backwards and up against the ropes. Zahra shook her head more as she stormed up to Alexa. She grabbed a handful of Alexa’s blonde hair. She pulled her back into the center of the ring and held her head up to hers.
Zahra Schreiber: I’M YOUR FUCKING NIGHTMARE!!!
Zahra took Alexa and threw her face first into the mat. Alexa grabbed at her face right as Zahra kicked her in the ribs. Alexa rolled over onto her back and grabbed at her midsection. Zahra walked up and looked down at Alexa. She bent down and pulled Alexa’s arm away from her body. She outstretched her arm on the mat. Zahra put her foot Alexa’s hand. Alexa waved her free hand and pleaded with Zahra.
Mauro Ranallo: Alexa started a fire in Zahra with that slap.
Corey Graves: Her first mistake was wanting this match.. Alexa’s second mistake, slapping Zahra. I don’t think she’s going to be making any more mistakes.
Zahra looked down at Alexa and watched her beg. Zahra shrugged her shoulders and she raised for foot and stomped down on the arm, right on the elbow. Alexa grabbed at her arm and rolled to her side. The referee backed Zahra off and then turned Alexa. He knelt down beside her and checked on her arm. Alexa slid over to the ropes and shook her head. Zahra leaned against the ropes on the opposite side of the ring. She watched as the referee continued to ask if Alexa wanted to stop the match. As soon as she saw Alexa say no, she walked over and shoved the referee out of the way. Zahra reached down for Alexa and grabbed her by the hair. She pulled Alexa to her feet and held her against the rope. Zahra wrapped Alexa’s arm around the left arm around the top rope. Alexa lifted up on her toes as Zahra pulled her arm over the top rope and through the middle.
Mauro Ranallo: She’s going to pull her arm off!!
Alexa screamed out in pain as she reached for her shoulder. Zahra leaned back put her foot on the bottom rope for leverage as she pulled. The referee yelled at Zahra to release the hold for a few seconds before he finally began to count.
Referee: 1... 2... 3... 4... ..
At the last possible second, Zahra released the hold. She stood back as Alexa fell to the mat holding her left arm. The referee knelt down and checked on Alexa. He reached out for her arm, but Alexa slapped him away. Zahra went to grab at Alexa’s arm again. The referee pulled her off and back Zahra up before he turned back to Alexa. Zahra shoved the referee out of the way once again and grabbed Alexa by the hair. Alexa wrapped her legs around the bottom rope and pulled herself out of the ring. Zahra reached through the ropes to keep a hold of Alexa. This allows Alexa to reach up and hold on to Zahra’s head and drop off the apron. Zahra’s throat connected with the middle rope and she flung back into the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: What a reversal!!
Zahra land on mat and clutched at her throat, gasping for air. Alexa knelt down outside of the ring and held onto her left arm. The EBWF Universe popped for the first offense against Zahra. Alexa stood up and looked back into the ring. She watched as Zahra rolled as he tried to catch her breath. Alexa kept her eyes on Zahra as she slid into the ring. Alexa knelt down in the corner as Zahra began to sit up. As soon as she was up, Alexa charged forward and rammed her knee into Zahra’s face.
Mauro Ranallo: A running knee!!
Zahra’s head fell back and bounced off the mat. Alexa stopped herself in the corner turned around to Zahra. She reached down and picked Zahra up by the hair and lifted her to her knees. She pulled back Zahra’s head and without a word continuously slapped her across the face. After a couple of open palm slaps, Alexa closed her fist and punched Zahra directly in the face. Zahra’s body fell to the mat. The referee told Alexa to keep the fist open.
Corey Graves: She can’t do that!!
Mauro Ranallo: An eye for an eye.. In this case, a fist for a fist.
Alexa mounted Zahra and she started to throw down some fists. The referee reached out and motioned for Alexa to stop. Just then, Zahra reached up and tucked Alexa’s head down. She rolled her over and the two women threw close fists at each other as they rolled out of the ring and onto their feet. Zahra kneed Alexa in the midsection. She grabbed a hold of Alexa’s hair and reached down and grabbed at the back of Alexa’s tights. She pulled Alexa’s tights up, revealing Alexa’s cheeks as she threw Alexa, left shoulder first, into the steel steps. The steps slid a few inches from the impact. The referee jumped out of the ring and instantly knelt by Alexa.
Mauro Ranallo: OH MY GOD!! INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!
Zahra smiled as she watched Alexa held onto her shoulder and screamed in pain. Zahra walked to the edge of the ring and knelt down beside it. She lifted up the apron skirt and reached under. A loud cheer rung out as the EBWF watched Zahra as she pulled out a wooden table. Zahra held onto the table and looked over at Alexa. The referee stood up and moved over to Zahra. He waved her to stop, but she stared past him, right at Alexa. She then continued to set up the table, against the appeal of the referee. After the legs were set, Zahra flipped it over. She used her hand and gave the table a quick pat.
Mauro Ranallo: What does she have planned with that?!
Corey Graves: Whatever she wants Mauro..
Mauro Ranallo: But this isn’t a no disqualification match..
Zahra smiled as she turned to Alexa and walked her way. Zahra reached down and grabbed Alexa by the hair and pulled her to her feet. She lead Alexa over to the table she had set up. Zahra went to smash Alexa’s face into the table, but Alexa placed her hands on the table and blocked it. Alexa elbowed Zahra in the ribs and instantly grabbed her by the hair. Alexa quickly smashed Zahra’s face into the table. Zahra flew back against the barricade. Alexa elbowed Zahra in the side of the head with her right elbow. She then grabbed Zahra by the hair and pulled her over to the apron. She smashed Zahra’s face into the edge of the apron. Alexa kept a hold of the hair and went to round the corner of the ring. Zahra grabbed a hold of the ring post. She wrapped her arm around the post and kept from being pulled by Alexa.
Mauro Ranallo: Zahra’s holding on for her life..
Alexa turned around, but Zahra reached through the ropes on the inside of the ring post. Zahra grabbed a hold of Alexa’s left wrist and she pulled her shoulder into the steel post. Alexa crumpled to the ground as Zahra dropped down to one knee. She touched her forehead to check for blood and then shook the cobwebs loose. The referee knelt down with Alexa, but before he could check on her, Zahra walked up and yanked on Alexa’s arm. She pulled Alexa back to her feet. Zahra tucked Alexa’s arm behind her own back with a hammer lock. Zahra rammed Alexa back into the barricade with her arm in between. The referee told Zahra to get back in the ring, but she stood up against Alexa and kept up against the barricade.
Mauro Ranallo: The referee needs to get this back in the ring..
Corey Graves: Don’t you think he’s trying? Do you think these women are going to listen to him?
Zahra pulled Alexa back to her feet and moved the two of them away from the barricade. Zahra put Alexa’s arm back into the hammer lock position. She then went on rammed Alexa back against the barricade with Alexa’s arm trapped. Zahra backed up away from Alexa and looked down. Alexa held onto her left arm and curled up against the barricade. Zahra went to reach down for Alexa’s arm once again, but just then, “War” by Sick Puppies blasted onto the sound system. The EBWF Universe cheered as Angelina Love hurried down the aisle and rounds the ring. Zahra turned and looked at Angelina with a smile. Angelina pointed at the ring as she walked up to Zahra.
Angelina Love: Get in that ring.. Right now!!
Zahra held up her arms and backed up to the ring. She rolled into the ring and slid to the center of the ring. There, Zahra sat up and crossed her legs as she watched the commotion at ringside. Angelina stood behind the referee as he knelt down beside Alexa. The two of them question Alexa on if she’s willing to continue. Alexa screamed yes as she continued to hold her arm. Angelina put his hand on the referee’s shoulder and told him to get back in the ring and start the count. Angelina then stood back.
Mauro Ranallo: What’s this?! Women’s General Manager, Angelina Love is allowing this match to continue?!
The referee did as Angelina requested and slid back in the ring. He looked at the sitting Zahra before he turned to the ropes and looked down at Alexa. He checked with Angelina once more before he officially began his count.
Referee: 1... 2...
Alexa glared up at Angelina as she cringed in pain. She kept a tight hold on her arm as she sat up and looked into the referee as he fingers went up for the ring. She heard his voice echo through her head before she was able to begin to move.
Referee: 4... 5... 6...
Alexa got to her feet and stumble a bit before she caught herself on the ring apron. She looked in at Zahra who sat there and looked directly back at her.
Referee: 7... 8...
Alexa stared into the ring, her arm draped at her side. She shook her head as she watched Zahra sit there with a smirk on her face. Alexa heard as referee as he yelled out the number nine. She threw herself into the ring just as the referee was about to raise his hands for the tenth time. He waved off the count instantly as Alexa knelt in the corner.
Mauro Ranallo: ALEXA AT THE LAST SECOND!!!
Angelina clapped at ringside as she watched Alexa tough through the pain and make it back into the ring. Zahra on the other hand shook her head before she stood up on feet. Alexa returned to her feet as well. Alexa walked up to Zahra and the two stared each other down. They began to yell back and forth between each other. Alexa quickly threw a forearm and connect with Zahra’s jaw. Zahra quickly responded and kneed Alexa in the ribs. Zahra took Alexa’s wrist and twisted it under. Zahra put her foot under Alexa’s jaw and dropped back and pulled Alexa’s down on her foot. Alexa’s head snapped back before she collapsed to the mat.
Corey Graves: She calls that The Jawbreaker.. You can see why.
Mauro Ranallo: Alexa might be out!!
Zahra crawled over and rolled Alexa onto her back. She hooked the leg as she went for the pinfall. The referee dropped for the count.
Referee: 1... 2... ..
In pain, Alexa threw her left shoulder up in the air. Zahra looked shocked as she looked back at the referee who held up two fingers. Zahra pounded her fist against the mat in frustration before she stood up. She looked down at Alexa. She stood at Alexa’s head for a moment before she tucked her foot under Alexa’s jaw.
Mauro Ranallo: What’s this... Is she...
Zahra aided Alexa to her feet with her foot under Alexa’s jaw. Once on her feet, Zahra looked at Alexa and then quickly spun around and connected with Alexa’s jaw with the bottom of her foot. Alexa fell to the mat, motionless.
Mauro Ranallo: OWARI DEATH KICK!!! WHERE DID SHE LEARN THAT?!
Corey Graves: Where do you think?
Zahra quickly dropped down for another pinfall. The referee followed down and instantly went for the pinfall.
Referee: 1... 2... ...
The referee rolled through the count just as his hand was about to connect for the three. Alexa threw her left arm up in air once more. Zahra let out a primal scream as she ripped at her hair. She looked back at the referee who only held up his two fingers. Zahra stood back up and turned to Alexa. She backed up into the corner and she watched Alexa.
Mauro Ranallo: What is Zahra going to have to do to finish Alexa off?
Zahra huffed in the corner as she watched Alexa begin to stir. Zahra looked out at the crowd and stomped her foot. Alexa continued to roll around on the mat. She rolled to her stomach and put her hands under her. Zahra stomped her foot a second time as she eyed up her prey. Alexa pushed herself up, but her left arm gave out and she fell to the mat. Zahra stomped her foot a third time as she waited. Alexa managed to push herself up to her hands and knees. Zahra lined Alexa up and changed. She jumped into the air and went to drop her foot on the back of Alexa’s neck, however Alexa slid backwards slightly. Zahra went through with the motion and her foot jammed into the mat. Her ankle buckled as she went down with force.
Mauro Ranallo: ZAHRA MISSED AMERICAN HISTORY X!!!
Zahra rolled forward and held onto her ankle. Alexa looked over at Zahra and continued to get onto her feet. She walked over to Zahra and reached down. Zahra attempted to push Alexa off, but Alexa rammed her knee into Zahra’s midsection. Alexa continued the attack as she tucked Zahra’s head under her arm. Alexa dropped back quickly with a Snap-DDT. Alexa rolled Zahra over, but instead of going for the pin, Alexa looked over at the corner. Alexa got to her feet and stumbled over corver. Alexa went through ropes before she made her ascent to the top turnbuckle.
Mauro Ranallo: Alexa Bliss going to the top!!
Alexa was about to stand up on the top rope as the EBWF Universe slowly began to cheer out. The cheers grew louder and louder until sudden a hooded fan jumped the barricade. Angelina noticed the commotion and saw the fan head for the ring. As the fan slid into the ring, bright pink hair was seen as hood flew back.
Mauro Ranallo: THAT’S LIV MORGAN!!
At the same moment, Angelina slid into the ring and got up in the way as Liv made a beeline for Alexa Bliss on the top rope. Alexa stopped as Angelina stood in between Liv and Alexa. Angelina held her hands out to Liv to stop her.
Liv Morgan: Yo! Step off!!
Angelina Love: Liv, get out of this ring!! This is a match!!
Morgan continued to try to get to Alexa, but Angelina didn’t budge. Alexa yelled at both of the women from the top rope. She motioned for them to get out of the way. Liv yelled back at Alexa and pushed against Angelina. The referee pulled at Liv to get back. The two spun, now the referee stood between Liv and Angelina. Liv was all riled up, wanting to get at Alexa. The referee went to back her up a little more, but Liv threw her hand up in the air which caused the referee to lose his balance. The referee stumbled backwards into Angelina. The domino effect continued as Angelina stumbled backwards against ropes. Alexa lost her balance from the vibrations. She attempted to grab the top rope, she toppled off the top rope and crashed through wooden table.
Mauro Ranallo: MAMMA MIA!!! ALEXA BLISS WENT THROUGH THE TABLE!!
Corey Graves: Zahra’s table comes into play!!
In the loudest pop of the night, the EBWF Universe all cheered out in unison as Alexa disappeared in the pile of broken wood. Angelina turned and looked outside the ring at the fallen Alexa Bliss. Everyone in the ring looked shocked in the same direction. The EBWF Universe didn’t share the shame stunned silence as they continued to cheer.
Corey Graves: Angelina Love just knocked Alexa off the top rope, through a table..
Mauro Ranallo: She didn’t mean to..
Corey Graves: Or did she? Anything to keep the championship off Alexa Bliss.
The referee looked at Angelina and then looked over at Liv, who had slid out of the ring and stood at the barricade. The referee looked at Alexa and then back to Angelina. He shrugged his shoulders as he did not know what to do. Angelina stood there as the referee begun a count.
Referee: 1... 2... 3... 4...
Mauro Ranallo: Not like this..
Referee: 5... 6...
Corey Graves: There’s no movement under that rubble..
Referee: 7... 8... 9...
Corey Graves: Angelina Love just cost Alexa Bliss the EBWF Women’s Championship..
The referee called for the bell and walked over to the edge of the ring. He took the championship from the time keeper and turn back around. Angelina continued to stare down at Alexa. “Lost In the Static” blast onto the sound system as the referee walked over and helped Zahra to her feet. He held the championship to her and she took it. Zahra looked over and saw Liv on the outside of the ring. Confused, she turned her head and looked at Angelina who stood at ropes. Zahra held the championship to her shoulder as she walked up to ropes.
Mauro Ranallo: Zahra just now seeing what just happened..
Zahra looked down and spotted Alexa’s body mixed in among the wood. Zahra smirked and looked over at Angelina. Zahra quickly gave the Women’s General Manager a pat on the back before she turned and walked to the other side of the ring. She exited the ring as a stretcher passed by. Zahra walked up the ramp and turned to look back at Angelina. Zahra held the championship in the air as the lights went out and the solo spotlight shined on Zahra. She lowered the championship and turned and headed to the back as a video package promoting Christmas Eve of Destruction.
After the Christmas Eve of Destruction promo, and a commercial advertising EBWF Action Figures, Angelina Love was seen backstage with Wes Ikeda. The two seemed to be in deep discussion, but they were interrupted by someone dramatically clearing their throat. The camera panned and Randy Orton and Edge moved into the frame. The crowd inside the Staples Center cheered.
Wes Ikeda: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa... if you two are just here to criticize the show, move along.
Edge: Hah! You hear this Randy? Boss man is telling us to move along.
Randy Orton: I hear it. But before we do, the two of us...
Randy pointed between himself and Edge.
Randy Orton: ...are here to talk to him.
He pointed his finger at Wes, hovering it very close to his chest.
Edge: Angie, babe, we'd talk to you too, but seeing as you're in charge of all the lady wrestling, you can't do anything for us except stand there and look pretty.
Wes Ikeda: What the hell, Adam?
Angelina rolled her eyes, and threw venom in Edge's direction.
Angelina Love: Pig!
Randy Orton: Now, now Edge, you can't say things like that in 2018. What we can say though, is that things are rather interesting around here. This is Fanniversary. It's as big as Wrestlemania. 17 years of EBWF, and you couldn't even book any bonifide stars on this show.
Edge: Where are the superstars who have been in this company for over a decade, huh?
Wes Ikeda: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Randy Orton: What it means is that we think, you two...
Randy pointed between Wes and Angelina.
Randy Orton: ...are letting the inmates run this prison. Is that true, Wes?
Wes took one step toward Randy and stared him down without a word. Edge leaned over in Randy's ear with a dramatic stage whisper.
Edge: He can't even deny it.
Randy Orton: Nope, he sure can't. Warden, you better grab the reigns and get things in order around here... because if you don't, we're going to have to assume that the rules are that there are no rules. And it sure would be a shame if superstars started dropping like flies left and right, and we were forced to take every opportunity we saw.
Edge: Because it looks like there's no one in charge around here, Wes. And if that's true, we're going to have no choice but to volunteer.
Randy smirked, and gave Edge a pat on the back, seeing they'd sufficiently riled Wes up they turned to leave. Wes flexed his jaw, and Angelina stepped in front of him, and began to speak about what they could do, as a promo for the main event began to play.
Corey Graves: Up next we have what could be the biggest Main Event in recent history Mauro!
Mauro Ranallo: Certainly. The future of the World Championship picture is on the line, stable superiority, EBWF Legend and overall Dignity is on the line!
Corey Graves: Jimmy Havoc has been tortured for weeks by Legion and now...he get his hands on Tommy End.
“One True Villain” by Hot Tag Media player as Marty Scurll came down to the Stage and stood at the top, to the left side.
“Toreador II” by Apocolyptica played as Aiden English came down to the Stage and stood at the top, to the right side.
“Break down the Walls” played as the lights went down, Chris Jericho stood at the top of the stage in his usual Light Bright jacket, he eventually made his way and stood next to Marty Scurll.
“I Came to Play” by Downstait as The Miz came out onto the stage, he looked at the other 3 members and made his way to stand next to Aiden English.
There was one Noticeable gap on the rampway as “MANTRA” by Bring Me The Horizon played as Jimmy Havoc made his way onto the ramp. He was wearing his mask and never looked up once before reaching the middle of the 4 men. He looked to his right and then too his left, he looked around the crowd and raised his EBWF Championship high before outstretching his fist forward.
The other 4 members joined in holding there fists together for one big fist bump, Havoc nodded as they all made there way to the ring together.
As Team EBWF all stood in the ring in unison, the lights went out. All the LED boards all went black. The EBWF Universe all began their boos as they knew who was next to make their way to the ring. A few moments passed before the tron flashed to live with static completely filling its screen. “Lost In the Static” came onto the sound system, but this time, a slow, soft intro was heard before the actual song took over. The boos continued as a few moments passed as Legion’s theme song continued to play. The camera flashed to the ring with Jimmy Havoc and the rest of his team stared up the ramp and waited in the darkness.
Mauro Ranallo: The wait is over!! Here comes Legion!!
Corey Graves: Does we have enough ambulances on standby?
The camera went back to the stage where the blackness still remained. A few moments more pasted by before “Lost In the Static” cut out abruptly. In confusion, the crowd went silent. The camera cut back to the ring where Team EBWF stood, just as confused as the EBWF Universe.
Corey Graves: Where are there? Where’s Legion?
Mauro Ranallo: Is this more mind games from Legion?
The camera cut back to the black, empty stage. Smoke continued to flow up from the grates in the steel stage when all of a sudden, a white spotlight flashed to life and shined down on the stage. In the light, five men stood a few feet apart from each other. Each man wore a black robe with their hood up. Inside the hood, a white mask could be seen. Though they tried to conceal their identity, everyone knew this was Legion. The man at the center of the stage took a step forward. He removed the hood and took a hold of the white mask. He lift the mask off his face, revealing himself to be, Tommy End. The EBWF Universe let out a series of boos that were louder than any other reaction the entire night.
Mauro Ranallo: There he is.. The voice of Legion..
Tommy looked down the ramp, his eyes locked on Jimmy Havoc, who stood at the ropes in the ring and glared right back at Tommy. The EBWF Universe quieted down rather slowly as Tommy and Jimmy stared at each other. The tension could be felt all the way up in the rafters. Seemingly in slow motion, Tommy raised his arms at his sides. As his arms rose, the lights above the ring came to life. They grew brighter until Tommy stopped with his arms outstretched. The lights shown the ring along with the asile.
Mauro Ranallo: Oh my...
Gasps could be heard in a hushed tone as everyone got the sight of numerous cloaked men, all with their hoods up, and a similar white mask. They all were turned to the ring and stared up at Team EBWF. The men in the ring all converged on one another as they turned their backs to the center of the ring and stared at the masked men. Havoc’s attention drew back to Tommy End on the stage.
Mauro Ranallo: What.. What is this?! Who are these people?!
Corey Graves: I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, they’re Legion...
Havoc clearly mouthed the words, “What the fuck?” as he stared at Tommy. Suddenly, “Lost In the Static” blasted back onto the sound system. With the start of the music, the hooded men all around the ring turned and slowly walked towards the stage. They walked back up the ramp and past Tommy End. Each man lowered their head as they passed Tommy. When the last man passed, the remaining four members of Legion all removed their robes and masks. They dropped them all on the stage and stood there. Each man dressed in their signature, well known ring gear, except everyone’s gear were color in black and gold.
Mauro Ranallo: Legion showing their true colors tonight!!
Tommy took off his robe after his brothers. He let the robe drop on the stage and then slowly walked headed towards the ring. Dante and Okada stepped out of their spot and followed behind Tommy. Next in line were Page and Whiplash as they followed behind the three. Each man’s eyes remained focused on the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: Even being booed by this record setting crowd.. Legion remains fixated on the men in the ring.
Tommy stopped at the bottom of the ramp and let his brothers pass by him. Dante and Okada separated and walked around opposite sides of the ring. Team EBWF in the ring eyed them up as each man of Legion took a side of the ring. Tommy remained at the edge of the ramp and looked into the ring.
Corey Graves: This might just break down before the match can even start.
The referee didn’t know who to focus on as he tried to keep control. Tommy walked forward and he put his hand on Whiplash’s shoulder. He walked past him and grabbed a hold of the bottom rope and pulled himself onto the apron. He straighten up and looked Jimmy in the eye. Havoc backed his team up and motioned for Tommy to get into the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: Havoc giving the ring to Tommy End.. How gentlemanly.
Corey Graves: I don’t think he’s giving Tommy anything.. He wants to get on with this.
Tommy looked out at his brothers who all climbed up on the apron on their respected side of the ring. The all turned and walked the apron and joined Tommy End on his side of the ring. One by one, each member of Legion entered the ring and stood side by side across from Team EBWF. Christy Hemme walked up to the center of the ring in between the two teams.
Corey Graves: I don’t know if I’d want to be Christy right about now.

Mauro Ranallo: The Miz doesn’t want to get into that ring.

Referee: 1... 2... ..
Dante got his shoulder up. Miz looked up at the referee in pain. He looked back at Dante before he stood up. Once on his feet, Miz looked over at Legion who didn’t look so cocky now. Both men reached for the tag as they yelled for Dante. Miz breathed heavily as he bent down and pulled up Dante’s large body. After a few seconds, Dante came to and pushed Miz away. Dante got to his feet, but Miz hit him with a right forearm. Dante came back with a knee to the midsection. Doubled over, Dante spun Miz around and lifted his body straight.

Christy Hemme: Michael Dante has been ELIMINATED!!

Dante rolled out of the way while Whiplash walked up to the center of the ring. Miz walked out of his corner and met with Whiplash in the middle of the ring. Whiplash held up his middle finger in The Miz’s face. The crowd reacted negatively to this, but as soon as Whiplash dropped his fingers, The Miz threw up both of his middle fingers. The EBWF Universe cheered out with this action. Whiplash however, didn’t like the retort and showed that as he lifted his knee and rammed it into Miz’s crotch. The referee instantly signaled for the bell as Whiplash blatantly hit Miz below the belt.
Mauro Ranallo: ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
Corey Graves: I expected nothing less from Whiplash..

The Miz cried out in pain again, but those cries were quickly muffled as Whiplash tucked The Miz’s head between his legs. Whiplash hooked Miz’s legs and lifted The Miz into the air and sat back. You could see Miz’s neck buckle as he was dropped on his head with a piledriver.
Mauro Ranallo: Package Piledriver!!
Corey Graves: The referee needs to get him out of there!!
The crowd continued to boo as Whiplash stood up and looked down at Miz’s motionless body. The referee yelled at Whiplash to get out of the ring. He pointed up the ramp and told Mikey to get to the back. Christy Hemme stood up and got on the microphone.
Christy Hemme: Mikey Whiplash has been ELIMINATED!!
Tommy smiled as he stood on the apron. Whiplash turned to leave the ring. Both men stood next to each other on the apron for a second before Whiplash climbed down and Tommy entered the ring. The referee looked to keep Tommy at bay as he walked up to Miz’s body. He looked down and then back at the referee. Tommy dropped down and lazily hooked Miz’s leg. The referee didn’t want to make the count, but he dropped down and started anyway.
Referee: 1... 2... ...
The loud screams of the entire EBWF Universe were heard as The Miz threw his shoulder in the air at the last second. The roar was deafening as the match continued. Tommy sat up and looked at the referee. Whiplash stopped on the ramp and looked back shocked that The Miz was able to kick out of that. Tommy got to his feet and got into the referee’s face. He didn’t say a word, but the pure look on Tommy’s face made the referee completely afraid.
Mauro Ranallo: THE MIZ KICKS OUT!!! THE MIZ KICKS OUT!!!
Corey Graves: I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS!!
Tommy huffed as he turned around and stared down at The Miz. Tommy walked up and he put his foot under Miz’s jaw and slowly lifted him up. The Miz rose to his feet, completely out of it. Tommy took in a deep breath as he spun around and nailed The Miz right on the jaw.
Mauro Ranallo: OWARI DEATH KICK!!
The crowd grew dead silent as Miz collapsed to the mat. Tommy dropped down and hooked the leg with a more serious cover. The referee dropped down and started another count.
Referee: 1... 2... ...
The referee rolled through the count as The Miz threw his shoulder off the mat again. The crowd erupted again as The Miz would not die. Tommy’s eyes grew wide as he turned his head to the referee. Tommy stood up and backed the referee into the corner. He got in his face and snarled in anger. The Miz lifted his head off the mat for a second before it dropped it back down.
Mauro Ranallo: Tommy better be careful he doesn’t get disqualified like Whiplash..
Tommy turned around and looked down at The Miz. He walked up slowly and bent down. He grabbed a handful of what hair he could get and pulled The Miz up to his feet. Tommy kept a grip on his head as the two stood there.
Tommy End: TIME TO DIE!!
Tommy backed up and went for another kick, however The Miz hooked Tommy and in one motion took him down with another finisher, but just as Tommy’s head hit the mat, the lights in the arena went completely out.
Mauro Ranallo: WHAT IS GOING ON!!
Corey Graves: The Miz had this won!!
Nothing could be seen in the ring, so no one in the arena or at home could see what was going on. The darkness lasted for a few moments before the lights came back. The Miz was alone in the ring with the referee. They looked around in fear as they saw the same cloaked men from earlier. The men surrounded the ring and among them, Tommy stood and looked into the ring. A smirk grew on his face as he reached up for the bottom rope. He pulled himself to the apron as all the men shift. Just then, “Mantra” blasted back onto the sound system. The EBWF Universe exploded as Jimmy Havoc ran out from the back, a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire in his hand. The numerous members of Legion turned to the ramp and ready themself. As Jimmy neared, they lunged for him, but Havoc swung his bat. The men surround Havoc, but he spun around and outstretched his bat. He continued to make his way to the ring through the sea of Legion. The Miz went to exit the ring and help Havoc, but Tommy came from behind and rolled The Miz up. Tommy yanked on the tights out of the site of the referee. The referee begun his count.
Referee: 1... 2... 3.
Just then, Legion hit the ring and surround The Miz. Tommy stood up and joined his brothers and stared down at The Miz looked up shocked from the pinfall. His shock turned to fear as he looked around at the legion of men around him.
Mauro Ranallo: THIS IS OUT OF CONTROL!!
Havoc reached the ringside area, but more Legion surrounded him. Just then, the rest of Team EBWF ran out from backstage. Aiden English, Chris Jericho, and Marty Scurll each held a weapon of choice. The all joined the attack at ringside which turned the attention of some of Legion. Havoc was able to get to the apron and roll into the ring. He got up and as Legion turned to attack, Havoc jammed his barbed wire bat into their midsection. Havoc cleared a path and made it to the center with The Miz.
Mauro Ranallo: Jimmy Havoc just lead Team EBWF back out to wage war tonight!!
Corey Graves: The Miz must be glad to see Havoc’s ugly mug right about now..
Mauro Ranallo: They’re still outnumbered..
Havoc eyed up Tommy who stood in front of his brothers. The two men stared at each other for moment as The Miz looked around at the circle. He looked in disbelief as the amount of men that surround them. Outside the ring, Team EBWF fought with all their hearts against Legion. The fought towards the ring to help their teammates, but just then, Tommy smiled. Suddenly, Havoc turned around and glared at The Miz. Unaware at first, The Miz turned around and saw Havoc staring back at him. There was no emotion in Havoc’s eyes moments before The Miz mouthed the word, “Fuck”. Havoc swung the barbed wire bat right into Miz’s midsection. Havoc pushed the bat deeper into Miz’s midsection as The Miz doubled over over the bat. Miz turned his head to Havoc and looked at him. The Miz’s eyes saddened with betrayal and disbelief. The sound of shocked silence over took the entire arena.
Mauro Ranallo: WHAT THE HELL!!
Corey Graves: THAT BACKSTABBING SON OF A BITCH!!
Mauro Ranallo: COREY!!
The silence ended with a loud eruption of boos. Team EBWF stopped their attacks and looked at the titan tron where they saw Havoc as he ripped the bat out of Miz’s stomach. Havoc spun the bat before he smashed it down across his back. Miz dropped to the mat and screamed out in pain. Havoc unleashed a few more swung down on The Miz’s back with the bat before he went to Miz’s leg and locked it around his. Jimmy bent backwards and took the barbed wire part of the bat and hooked it into Miz’s face. Havoc rolled the bat down the face, the barbed wire spikes punctured the skin as they rolled. Once the bat rester at Miz’s throat, Havoc pulled back and dug the barbed wire into Miz’s flesh.
Mauro Ranallo: SUICIDE SILENCE!!
Corey Graves: With a barbed wire bat!
Miz screamed as Havoc locked in the submission and yanked back on his head. The EBWF Universe continued to boo in one loud, fluid boo. Tommy smiled as he stared down at Havoc as he torn The Miz apart. Legion all watched as The Miz was being tortured in the middle of the ring. Minutes past as inside the hold before The Miz eventually passed out with pain. Havoc released the hold and stood up. He lowered the bat to his side and looked down at The Miz. He raised his gaze and stared at Tommy. Without a word between the two, Jimmy walked up to Tommy and the two men embraced in a hug.
Mauro Ranallo: Am I seeing this?! After everything that Legion put Havoc through. The torture.. I bloodshed. They branded him.. After all that.. Jimmy Havoc and Tommy End are together in the ring.
Corey Graves: I can’t.. Havoc. Is. Legion?
Mauro Ranallo: He turned his back on everyone!
A red spotlight shined down perfectly on the circle that surround Havoc, End, and Miz. “Lost In the Static” blasted onto the sound system, but even the music could not drown out the volume of the boos from the EBWF Universe. Jimmy and Tommy stood proudly together in the center of the spotlight over The Miz’s body. Motion happened through Legion as the handed the EBWF Championship through the group and to Havoc. Jimmy held the championship into the air as the close logo took over the show.
