Mauro Ranallo: Good evening and welcome to the first pay-per-view of 2022, Last Survivor! Tonight marks the start of a new era in EBWF, and we’re kicking things off with the women’s Last Survivor match!
“Time To Rock & Roll” (with “Bossy” intro) hit and the crowd cheered as Trish Stratus made her way to the ring. When Trish was in the ring, “Kingdom” by All Good Things hit and the crowd gave a mixed reaction as Raquel Diaz stepped out onto the stage.
Nigel McGuinness: There’s certainly no love lost between these two women, Mauro… Trish Stratus cost Raquel Diaz the Women’s Championship on Warfare, and Raquel is sure to be looking for revenge here tonight!
Raquel glared at Trish, then ran down the ramp, sliding into the ring and charging towards her, hitting a series of punches. Trish fought back with some right hands of her own, then whipped Raquel against the ropes. As Raquel ran back towards her, Trish went for an arm drag, but Raquel blocked it, then took Trish down with a clothesline. Raquel stomped on Trish several times, before dragging her towards the ropes. Raquel trapped Trish’s head between the middle and bottom ropes, using the ropes to choke her!
Mauro Ranallo: The referee is trying to get Raquel to stop this, but there are no disqualifications in the Last Survivor match!
Raquel pulled Trish to her feet and tried to throw her over the top rope, but Trish blocked it, then kicked Raquel away. As Raquel staggered backwards, Trish charged towards her, hitting a spear! Both women got to their feet, and Trish went for the Chick Kick, but Raquel ducked out of the way, then grabbed Trish and hit her with the Three Amigas! Both women were down and the ten second countdown for the next entrant began. As the clock hit zero, “Celtic Invasion” hit and the crowd cheered as Becky Lynch made her way to the ring.
Nigel McGuinness: This is the first time we’ve seen Becky Lynch since Fanniversary!
As Becky entered the ring, she hit Trish with an exploder suplex, then grabbed Raquel and hit her with the Bex Plex. Becky pulled Trish to her feet and whipped her into the corner, then grabbed Raquel and threw her into the opposite corner of the ring. She ran at Trish, hitting her with the Flying Firearm, before turning around and hitting another Flying Firearm on Raquel Diaz!
Mauro Ranallo: What a start here by Becky Lynch! She’s taking the fight to both Trish Stratus and Raquel Diaz!
Becky turned her attention back to Trish, who was still in the corner. She grabbed Trish by the legs and tried to lift her over the top rope, but Trish kicked her away, then climbed the turnbuckle and hit Becky with a diving crossbody! As Trish got to her feet, Raquel Diaz grabbed her from behind, hitting an inverted DDT. Raquel then went for the Lasso from El Paso! As Trish tried to break free before Raquel could lock it in, the countdown clock struck zero and Britt Baker made her way to the ring.
Nigel McGuinness: Competing in her first Last Survivor match, it’s Dr Britt Baker, DMD!
Britt took her time making her way down the ramp, and as she reached the bottom of the ramp she stopped for a moment, considering her strategy. Trish had managed to avoid the Lasso from El Paso, and Becky Lynch was now hitting Raquel Diaz with a series of punches. After Becky had hit Raquel with the Manhandle Slam, Britt entered the ring, attacking Becky from behind and knocking her down to the mat before stomping on her repeatedly. Britt battled Becky while Raquel and Trish fought, but there were no eliminations in the next 90 seconds before “Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio hit and Allysin Kay made her way to the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: And here comes Allysin Kay, who is so far undefeated in EBWF!
As Allysin entered the ring, she ran at Becky and Britt, taking both women down with a double clothesline, then turned her attention to Raquel and Trish. Trish had Raquel in the corner, and had just hit her with the Stinger Splash. As Trish moved out of the corner, Allysin grabbed her from behind, throwing her over the top rope! Trish was able to hold onto the ropes, and Allysin tried to kick her off the ring apron, but Trish knocked her away then climbed back into the ring. At this point, Raquel came out of the corner and she ran at Trish, going for a big boot… but Trish ducked out of the way, then grabbed Raquel and hit her with the Stratusfaction! As Trish got to her feet, Allysin grabbed her from behind, hitting a Saito suplex.
Nigel McGuinness: She calls that the Cut Throat!
Allysin then turned her attention to Becky Lynch. She grabbed Becky, and tried to set her up for the AK47, but Becky blocked it and lifted Allysin onto her shoulders, hitting an electric chair drop. As Becky got to her feet, she turned her attention back to Britt Baker… but Britt hit her with a superkick! Suddenly Britt Baker was the only woman left standing, and she held out her arms triumphantly, then did her DMD taunt. “Geek” by MC Chris hit and Leva Bates made her way to the ring as the sixth entrant.
Mauro Ranallo: Britt Baker will be pleased to see her friend Leva Bates making her way out here… if the two of them can work together, that could give them an advantage over the other women.
Nigel McGuinness: We’re over halfway through the match and there have been no eliminations yet… the ring is getting pretty full!
As Leva entered the ring, she hugged Britt, then they looked around at the ring at the other competitors. Trish had Raquel in the corner, so Britt and Leva turned their attention to Allysin Kay, beating her down. Britt and Leva had Allysin on the ropes, but before they could get her over the top rope, Becky Lynch grabbed Leva, pulling her away from Allysin and taking her down to the mat, locking in the Dis-arm-her! Britt tried to go to Leva’s aid, but before she could Allysin Kay grabbed her, hitting a neckbreaker. Another 60 seconds passed without any eliminations, then as the countdown clock hit zero, “The Fight Song” hit and Winter stepped out onto the stage.
Mauro Ranallo: Business is about to pick up!
Becky glared at Winter as she walked down the ramp. As soon as Winter entered the ring, Becky charged towards her, hitting her with a clothesline over the top rope!
Nigel McGuinness: Winter eliminated by Becky within seconds of entering the ring!
As Winter landed on the outside, Becky climbed to the top rope. When Winter was on her feet, Becky hit her with a flying forearm smash, eliminating herself from the Last Survivor match! As Becky and Winter continued fighting up the ramp, the camera cut back to the ring. Leva Bates was attacking Trish Stratus, and she had her set up for a powerbomb. She lifted Trish up… but Trish countered with a hurricanrana! Both women got to their feet, and Trish shoved Leva back against the ropes, then hit her with the Chick Kick, sending her over the top rope!
Mauro Ranallo: Trish Stratus eliminates Leva Bates!
Trish turned her attention to Britt Baker, and the two women exchanged punches. On the other side of the ring, Raquel and Allysin were in a lock up. Raquel took Allysin down with a snapmare, then as Allysin sat up, Raquel hit her with a shoot kick in the back. She pulled Allysin to her feet and set her up for the Gory Bomb… but Allysin broke free, then put Raquel in the Gogoplata! As the countdown clock hit zero, “Missile” by Dorothy hit and the crowd cheered as Natalya made her way to the ring. Upon entering the ring, Natalya immediately joined Trish Stratus and the two Canadians double-teamed Britt Baker. Across the ring, Raquel Diaz had broken free of the Gogoplata and hit Allysin Kay with the Three Amigas! Meanwhile, Trish and Natalya had Britt Baker on the ropes. While Natalya held Britt in place, Trish went for the Chick Kick… but Britt ducked out of the way, and Trish inadvertently hit Natalya instead! As Natalya fell to the mat, Britt hit Trish with a DDT, then pulled out a black glove and put Trish in the Lockjaw! Trish was able to break free by rolling over, and as both women got to their feet, Trish whipped Britt against the ropes before hitting a spinebuster. “Hardcore Country” hit and the crowd booed as Mickie James made her way to the ring.
Nigel McGuinness: Mickie James entering at number nine… just one more superstar left to enter!
As Mickie entered the ring, she went after Trish Stratus. The two women locked up, and Trish lifted Mickie over her shoulder, then went to throw her over the top rope… but Mickie countered with a headscissors takedown! Both women landed on the ring apron, and sensing the precarious situation they were in, they quickly rolled back into the ring. Meanwhile, Natalya and Allysin Kay were fighting in the corner, and Britt Baker had Raquel Diaz down on the mat. As Raquel tried to get to her feet, Britt ran against the ropes, then hit Raquel with the Curb Stomp!
Mauro Ranallo: Mamma Mia! A devastating Curb Stomp! Raquel might be out cold!
Britt dragged Raquel to the edge of the ring, and tried to lift her over the top rope, but Raquel held onto the ropes. The camera cut back to Natalya, who was about to put Allysin Kay in the Sharpshooter… but Allysin kicked her away, then got to her feet and hit Natalya with the Discus from Detroit. As Allysin set Natalya up for the AK47, the ten second countdown for the final entrant began. The crowd began chanting as the clock counted down… 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…
“You’re so hypnotizing, could you be the devil? Could you be an angel?”
“E.T.” by Katy Perry hit, and the crowd cheered as Kris Statlander made her way to the ring. As she reached the bottom of the ramp, Kris walked up the ring steps and climbed onto the turnbuckle.
Mauro Ranallo: The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is about to take flight!
Statlander leapt from the top rope, going for a diving crossbody… but Britt Baker caught her in mid-air, then threw her out of the ring!
Nigel McGuinness: That might be the shortest intergalactic flight in history, Mauro!
Britt sarcastically waved goodbye to Kris Statlander, then turned around… and was caught with a big boot to the face from Raquel Diaz! On the other side of the ring, Allysin Kay had Natalya over the top rope, and was hitting her with a series of punches and kicks. Natalya kept holding onto the ropes, and looking frustrated, Allysin took a step back, then went for the Discus from Detroit… but Natalya ducked out of the way and grabbed Allysin, pulling her over the top rope! As the two women grappled on the ring apron, Trish grabbed Allysin Kay, helping Natalya throw her to the outside.
Mauro Ranallo: Allysin Kay has been eliminated!
As Natalya re-entered the ring, the camera cut to Raquel Diaz, who had Mickie James lifted over her shoulders. Raquel hit Mickie with the Gory Bomb, then dragged her to her feet and threw her over the top rope.
Nigel McGuinness: Mickie James has been eliminated! We’re down to the final four!
Raquel turned around and locked eyes with Trish and Natalya, who were poised and ready to attack her. Before they could do so, Britt Baker stood next to Raquel, pointed at Trish and Natalya, then pointed at Raquel, before pointing to herself.
Mauro Ranallo: It looks like Britt Baker is proposing a temporary alliance here with Raquel Diaz!
Raquel nodded, then she and Britt charged towards Trish and Natalya. Britt went after Natalya, while Raquel and Trish exchanged right hands back and forth. Raquel took Trish down to the mat, and put her in the Lasso from El Paso! Natalya came to Trish’s aid, hitting Raquel with a low front dropkick and forcing her to break the hold. As Natalya got to her feet, Baker hit her with a stiff kick to the midsection, knocking her down, then hit the Curb Stomp! Britt dragged Natalya to her feet and threw her over the top rope, eliminating her. Baker then moved to the corner, crouching down and watching Trish and Raquel, who were going at it on the other side of the ring. Raquel whipped Trish into the corner, and hit her with a series of kicks. She then tried to lift Trish over the top rope, but Trish kicked Raquel away, then climbed to the top turnbuckle and hit a diving crossbody. As both women got to their feet, Trish set Raquel up for the Stratusfaction… but as she ran towards the ropes, Raquel lifted her up, throwing her over the top rope!
Nigel McGuinness: Natalya is eliminated! Trish is eliminated! We’re down to two!
Mauro Ranallo: Raquel Diaz is a two-time Royal Rumble winner… will she be the first Last Survivor winner, or will that title go to the Doctor, Britt Baker?
As soon as Raquel turned to face Britt Baker, Britt ran towards her, taking her down with a flying clothesline. Both women got to their feet and Britt whipped Raquel into the corner, then hit her with a series of shoulder thrusts before sitting her on the top turnbuckle. Britt waved goodbye to Raquel, then hit her with a forearm smash… but Raquel landed on the ring apron! Britt tried to knock her off, but Raquel slid between her legs back into the ring, then grabbed Britt’s legs, lifting her over the top rope. Raquel then went to hit Britt with a right hand, but Britt blocked it, grabbing Raquel and hitting her with an uppercut, knocking her backwards. Britt climbed back into the ring and went for a superkick, but Raquel side-stepped it, then grabbed Britt and lifted her onto her shoulders, carrying her towards the edge of the ring. Raquel tried to throw Britt out of the ring, but Britt countered with a reverse rana! Both women got to their feet, and Britt hit Raquel with a knee smash, knocking her back against the ropes. Britt followed up with a clothesline, knocking Raquel over the top rope, but Raquel held onto the ropes and landed on the ring apron. Raquel tried to get back into the ring, but before she could, Britt hit her with a superkick! Raquel fell to the outside, and as both of her feet touched the floor, the referee called for the bell.
Christy Hemme: Your winner of the Women’s Last Survivor match… Dr Britt Baker, DMD!
“The Epic” by Downstait hit, and Britt Baker fell to her knees, holding out her arms and smiling as she celebrated her victory. Britt got to her feet and exited the ring, then made her way up the ramp.
Mauro Ranallo: This crowd is still buzzing from the end of that Last Survivor match!
Nigel McGuinness: And we have one more to go in our main event tonight.
Mauro Ranallo: That March pay-per-view event might not have a name, but it's already shaping up to have can't miss matches!
Nigel McGuinness: And speaking of can't miss matches, our first title defense is next as Xavier Woods puts his Breakout Championship on the line against Adam Cole and Christian Cate in a triple threat match.
"You Know It's All About the Boom!"
Adam Cole came to the stage to an ovation from the crowd. He did his usual entrance as the crowd chanted along before TakeOver V2 hit and Christian Cage came to the ring.
Nigel McGuinness: The former EBWF Breakout Champion is on a mission to take back his title.
Mauro Ranallo: King Xavier has proven to be a formidable opponent, Nigel. We'll have to see how he does here tonight.
Once Christian joined Cole in the ring and "New Day New Way" hit. King Xavier came to the ring in his crown, holding the championship. He waved to his adoring public as he proceeded down the ramp. Once in the ring he gave his crowd and the title to the referee before the bell rang.
Nigel McGuinness: We're underway!
Without conversation, Cole and Xavier threw Christian to the outside of the ring. Cole quickly turned to Xavier and got a roll up.
Woods countered with a roll up of his own.
Cole kicked out. Both men exchanged more covers. Christian charged in, but a double clothesline by Cole and Woods took Christian back to the outside.
Mauro Ranallo: Christian Cage can't seem to find his footing in this match.
Christian battled back into the ring. Trading fists with Xavier. Cole jumped off the top rope but Christian landed an uppercut. He went for the cover but Cole kicked out. Xavier on the ring apron hit Christian and Cole took Christian out. Cole hit an elbow drop onto Woods. Christian rolled out of the ring and Cole jumped over the top rope onto Christian on the outside. Woods jumped through the ropes and landed a tornado DDT onto Christian on the outside.
Nigel McGuinness: Adam Cole has to get one of these men back into the ring.
It was Woods who threw Christian in the ring. Christian threw Woods in the corner but Cole got in a kick that took Christian down. Cole flew off the top rope and went for the splash but Christian got the knees up. He went for the cover but Christian kicked out. The crowd reacted to a flying elbow by Woods onto Christian. He went for the cover.
Mauro Ranallo: No! Adam Cole breaks it up!
Woods and Cole exchanged right hands. Christian got three woods into the corner and flattened Cole with a clothesline. Christian dropped beside Cole and wrenched the arm. Cole fought to his feet and tried to set up for the Panama Sunrise, but Christian countered into The Killswitch. When Christian popped up, Xavier grabbed him by the arm.
Nigel McGuinness: Lost in the Woods!
Mauro Ranallo: Christian and down. Cole is down.
Xavier pinned Adam Cole, hooking the leg.
Nigel McGuinness: Xavier Woods survives this triple threat match and retains his EBWF Breakout Championship.
Mauro Ranallo: I think we're in for one hell of a journey with this young man.
Xavier put his crown back on his head and held the title up above his head as a promotional package for the World Championship match began to play.
Christy Hemme: The following match is a three stages of hell match and it is for the EBWF World Championship.
The crowd cheered.
Christy Hemme: This match will have up to three falls. The first fall will be a submission match. The second fall will be a cage match where the competitor must escape the cage to win. If needed, the third fall will be a last man standing match!
"I Came to Play" hit and The Miz came to the stage, spinning in his usual entrance and pointing out toward the crowd.
Christy Hemme: Introducing first, from Cleveland, Ohio, the challenger, The Miz!
Miz came down the ring to a chorus of boos. He got up on the turnbuckle as he surveyed the crowd.
Christy Hemme: And his opponent, the champion...
"Judas" hit and the majority of the crowd went wild as Jericho stepped onto the stage with the EBWF World Championship around his waist. Christy did not get to finish her introduction as the crowd took over, singing Judas until it echoed off of the walls.
Mauro Ranallo: Though the vocal minority has had some thoughts on the historic 12th EBWF Championship reign of Chris Jericho, these EBWF fans are proving that they're still firmly behind him.
The music faded and Jericho took his jacket and the belt off.
Nigel McGuinness: Looks like we're about ready to get underway here, Mauro.
Mauro Ranallo: This first match is a submission match. We will get to the cage match, and if needed a last man standing match.
Nigel McGuinness: The Miz is a tough customer, Mauro, and he wants this championship back!
The bell rang and Jericho laid into Miz with a chop. Miz got out of the ring and ran around on the outside before going back in. Jericho landed another chop and followed with a delayed vertical suplex. He threw Miz into the corner and Jericho hit a clothesline and some right hands. Jericho got another chop, but Miz dodged a charge and Jericho slammed into the steel post. Miz stomped into Jericho, driving his boot into his throat before hitting a clothesline for a near fall. Miz put on a sleeper, and Jericho powered out and whipped Miz into the ropes. Miz hit a shoulder block. Miz went off the ropes, and ran right into a dropkick by Jericho, who whipped him into the corner and hit a right hand. Miz caught him with some hard left hands, but Jericho dropped him off the top and landed a crossbody for the near fall. Miz got dumped over the top rope, and Jericho dropped him off the apron with a springboard dropkick before hitting a baseball slide into Miz. Miz caught Jericho with a kick which sent Jericho to a knee. Miz followed up with two more kicks to the head.
Mauro Ranallo: That looked brutal!
Miz put a chinlock on Jericho, but he powered out. He got hit with a neck breaker by Miz. Miz went back to work on Jericho with another chin lock, but Jericho powered out again before Miz whipped him into the ropes. Jericho got on the top, dropping Miz with a double axe handle and a shoulder block. Miz went for a neck breaker again, but Jericho nearly reversed it into a Walls of Jericho before hitting a running enziguri. Jericho hit a running bulldog, but Miz rolled out of a Lionsault attempt for a DDT. Miz looked for the Skull Crushing Finale, but Jericho got a butterfly into a backbreaker. Miz caught Jericho with a boot to the face, and Jericho crawled to the ropes. Miz was looking frustrated as he took Jericho to the corner working the face of Y2J. Miz charged at Jericho, who caught him with a spinebuster before locking in the Walls of Jericho.
Nigel McGuinness: What?!
Mauro Ranallo: Just like that! Chris Jericho sitting deeper to wrench it in!
Nigel McGuinness: Miz is going to... TAP! He tapped!
Miz was tapping, and Jericho broke the hold, throwing Miz's leg down to the mat. Jericho backed into the corner, and looked up as the strobe lights went off and the cage began to lower.
Mauro Ranallo: And there's no rest for the wicked. It's 1-0 Jericho and now we have a cage match to contend with!
Jericho rolled out of the ring as the cage slowly descended and lifted the ring apron. He pulled two chairs out and threw them into the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: Jericho grabbing a little insurance policy before he can no longer get to the outside.
Nigel McGuinness: In order to win this match, one of these men must escape the cage.
Mauro Ranallo: That's right Nigel, no submissions or pinfalls here.
Once inside the ring, Jericho picked up the chair, but was met with a dropkick from The Miz that sent the chair back into his face. The referee on the outside checked the door and the second match officially began. Jericho got up on the turnbuckle and started climbing up the cage. He got near the top when Miz took hold of his trunks and pulled him down. Miz put some big kicks to Jericho in the corner. Miz favored his leg a little, but followed up with a quick clothesline on Jericho. Jericho countered a catapult by holding on to the cage and climbing up. Jericho got near the top when Miz caught up with him. Miz tossed Jericho off the top turnbuckle and back into the ring. Miz attempted a shoulder block and Jericho moved out of the way, causing Miz to crash into the side of the cage. Jericho responded by hitting a quick back suplex on Miz. Miz then sent Jericho into the cage with a high back body drop followed by a big face plant in the middle of the ring. Miz recovered with a front suplex on Jericho.
Mauro Ranallo: These two are giving it their all.
Nigel McGuinness: I don't know how they're still going after that submission match.
The crowd reacted as a figure came from behind the curtain.
Mauro Ranallo: It's Mickie James!
Nigel McGuinness: That's Mickie Mizanin to you, Mauro!
Mickie charged down to ringside. Jericho ignored her, and charged with a running bulldog, but then missed a Lionsault. He landed on his feet and then jumped on the cage.
Mauro Ranallo: 51 is the new 31, Nigel! The nimbleness of Jericho!
Jericho began the climb, and the crowd was behind him as he got to the top. He began turning his body to the other side. Mickie was yelling to rouse Miz, and he finally jumped up to catch up with him. Jericho powered Miz back down to the ring with a power bomb and then into a Walls of Jericho! Mickie was livid.
Nigel McGuinness: Miz was already limping on that leg, and now he's back in the Walls of Jericho. Mickie is trying to spur him on.
Miz struggled, but pulled with all his might and got to the ropes.
Mauro Ranallo: I think The Miz has forgotten that there are no rope breaks in the steel cage!
Nigel McGuinness: No, Miz is hoping Jericho's ring awareness will kick in and he'll just let go.
Mauro Ranallo: Then he hasn't been watching Chris Jericho for the last 30 years, because that man will do no such thing.
Miz brought himself up using the ropes and countered into an inverted DDT on Jericho. Miz was winded, but landed a big boot on Jericho. Mickie cheered at ringside. Miz backed up in the corner and awaited Jericho to get on his feet. When Jericho got up, Miz charged for a clothesline, but Jericho turned and tried to escape through the cage door. Jericho crawled, and tasted freedom as he had both of his hands on the floor, but Miz held on to his legs. Mickie grabbed the open door and swung it into the face of Jericho! Miz dragged Jericho back into the ring and the referee locked the door again. Jericho was on his back, and planted both boots into Miz's midsection, sending him flying backwards. Jericho grabbed one of the steel chairs he'd previously brought into the ring and yelled at Miz to get up.
Mauro Ranallo: That might have been Jericho's only chance!
Jericho missed a shot with the steel chair and Miz caught Jericho around the midsection and tackled him down. Jericho struggled to his feet with Miz still holding on. Jericho hit a Codebreaker! Jericho started climbing up the cage and got to the top. Mickie was still yelling at Miz, who now saw this and tried to catch up. Miz grabbed Jericho by the head and pulled him back inside, back down to the top turnbuckle. Jericho caught Miz with an elbow, causing Miz to fall and crotch himself on the top rope. Jericho climbed back up and got over the top.
Mauro Ranallo: Jericho is so close to retaining. The crowd can taste it!
Miz grabbed Jericho’s arm through an open hole and locked it in. Jericho was dangling from the side of the cage. Miz jumped up and was at the top of the cage. Miz pulled Jericho up until both were sitting down at the top and exchanging right hands. Jericho slid off the top and was grabbing Miz’s right leg. Miz was pulled down and jumped towards the other side of the cage. Jericho then springboarded off the ropes, grabbed Miz and pulled him off the cage into a Codebreaker.
Mauro Ranallo: Jericho has to go for the door! Go Chris go!
Both men had teetered to their knees, and Jericho hit a chop block on Miz. Jericho yelled at Miz, and Mickie began screeching on the outside. The referee pointed to her and threw her out, ordering her to the back as the crowd went wild.
Nigel McGuinness: The referee was tired of listening to Mickie James and has thrown her out!
Mickie looked offended as one of the referees on the outside began to escort her toward the ramp. Jericho had picked up a steel chair and tried hitting Miz in the ankle with a steel chair, but Miz moved. Miz whipped Jericho into all four sides of the steel cage. Miz sent Jericho into the corner. Jericho jumped up top and started climbing up the cage. Miz pulled Jericho down and rammed his head into the top of the cage a few times. Jericho fell back into the ring. Miz climbed down and Jericho started crawling towards the cage door. Miz mocked Jericho and kicked him in the gut. Miz closed the cage door onto the ankle and leg of Jericho. Jericho cried out in pain. Miz then stomped over the ankle of Jericho. Miz pulled Jericho back into the ring, and waited as the champion pulled himself to his feet, only to hit the Skull Crushing Finale! Miz picked up a chair.
Nigel McGuinness: What are you doing, Miz?
Miz began to back up toward the cage door.
Mauro Ranallo: I think that's an insurance policy in case Jericho tries to get up again.
Miz got close enough to the cage door that the referee on the outside opened it. Miz climbed out and looked back at Jericho before glancing at the steel steps.
Mauro Ranallo: It's almost like Miz is torn between going in and continuing this assault and escaping the cage.
Miz ultimately took the stairs, and dropped the chair on the outside. When his feet hit the floor the bell rang.
Mauro Ranallo: And we are one and one.
Nigel McGuinness: The winner of this next fall will determine the winner of this Three Stages of Hell Match.
Mauro Ranallo: And the winner of the EBWF World Championship.
Both men went to opposite corners and it was only once they were both on their feet that the referee rang the bell for the third time. Miz missed an It Kick, but beat Jericho down and backed off.
Nigel McGuinness: I think Miz has to stay on him…
Jericho was up by three, and grabbed Miz to whip him into the corner. Miz rebounded out and clotheslined Jericho. Miz followed up with chops, and then came off the ropes with a flying forearm. Miz struggled to his feet and hit Jericho with a slam. Miz went to the top rope, and leapt off with a flying elbow only to eat knees.
Mauro Ranallo: Jericho got his knees up. Now can he get to his feet?
Jericho pulled himself to standing.
Miz got to his feet, but Jericho clotheslined him to the floor. Miz got back to the apron and ducked under the springboard dropkick attempt by Jericho. Miz then got the slingshot cross body to the floor. Miz was up as the ref counted on Jericho.
Jericho was up, Miz went back to the floor and tackled Jericho from behind. He mounted him for rights and lefts. Jericho fought his way up and they traded punches around the ring. Miz missed another It Kick, which allowed Jericho to get the bulldog on the entrance ramp. Miz made it to his feet, and then Jericho punched him square. Jericho drove his kicks into him. When Miz got up, Jericho went for a springboard dropkick, but Miz ducked and Jericho went smashing to the floor. Miz connected with a standing shooting star press.
Mauro Ranallo: Miz is pulling everything out of his bag of tricks.
Jericho started to come to and pushed himself up on his elbow. Miz mounted him and pummeled him on the ramp. Jericho pushed him off, and landed a kick to the side of his head. Jericho went to gather Miz only to get caught by the legs and catapulted into the ring apron. He fell forward clutching his back. He rose to his feet and charged at Miz, only to get flipped back onto the hard steel of the ring apron.. The two grappled up the ramp until Jericho locked on the Walls of Jericho on the stage. He let go of Miz’s legs and taunted the crowd who responded with cheers as the referee counted.
Miz rose to his feet and hit Jericho in the midsection before tossing him off the stage to the concrete. Miz followed Jericho down to the floor, as Jericho pulled himself up off the floor. Miz looked up at the camera crane, and the crowd began to cheer as Miz reached up and grabbed it. Miz swung the camera crane into Jericho's head, putting him on his back. The crowd was on their feet as the two continued to brawl around and through the crowd into the ring side area. They worked their way back toward the ring, and Miz tossed Jericho over the guardrail and went shopping under the ring for a ladder. Once in hand, Jericho hit a dropkick to it, sending Miz reeling to the floor. Jericho picked the ladder back up and drove it into Miz' face to get another count going.
Miz fought back with a chop before tossing the ladder at Jericho's head. Miz dismantled the ring side table and placed Jericho on it before setting up a ladder and jumping off with a big elbow, driving Jericho through the table.
Nigel McGuinness: The Miz pulling out all the stops here!
Jericho still wouldn’t stay down and Miz hit a hip toss on Jericho onto the floor. Miz tried a piledriver but Jericho scooped the legs and got the Walls of Jericho on the debris of the table.
Mauro Ranallo: How many times has Miz been in the Walls of Jericho? His legs and lower back have to be in agony.
Miz screamed in pain, Jericho released the hold and picked Miz up, rolling him back into the ring. Jericho slid in after him, but Miz had grabbed one of the long left behind chairs and flung it toward Jericho, cracking him in the face with it. Jericho fell face first to the mat, and the referee started to count.
Jericho started to stir.
Mauro Ranallo: Oh my God. Jericho is busted open.
Miz hit Jericho over the back with the chair.
Miz looked incensed as the referee started the count over.
Mauro Ranallo: Any offense Miz puts on offer here will restart the count.
The referee called Miz off. Shouting at him that he couldn’t win if he continued the beating. Miz began to pace with the chair still in hand.
Nigel McGuiness: Jericho hasn’t moved at all.
Mauro Ranallo: Miz is twitching with the need to keep up the beating.
Nigel McGuinness: The only thing he wants more is the EBWF World Championship.
The bell rang.
Mauro Ranallo: The Miz has done it.
Christy Hemme: Here is your winner…
But Christy couldn’t finish as the crowd erupted into boos that only grew louder as Miz took the chair still in his hands and began to drive the blunt end of the chair into Jericho’s neck. Miz mixed this with some stomps to the back.
Mauro Ranallo: Someone has to stop this.
The referee attempted to distract Miz by offering him the World Championship, and Miz took it forcefully but only looked at it for a moment before dropping it and looking back to the chair in his hand. Miz drew the chair back again.
Nigel McGuinness: If this goes on much longer, Jericho is going to be carried out of here on a stretcher. What is Miz…
“Oh My Here We Go!”
‘Sound of Madness’ hit and the crowd cheered as Miz wheeled around to the entrance ramp. Wes Ikeda didn’t come though. Miz was fixated on the ramp as a cheer went up from the crowd.
Mauro Ranallo: Miz is distracted.
Nigel McGuinness: Where is the chairman, Maur…
Mauro Ranallo: Blaine Ikeda! Blaine Ikeda!
The younger Ikeda had jumped the guardrail and rolled into the ring behind Miz’s back. Thinking he’d been duped by the distracting music, Miz reeled back with the chair and whirled on Jericho. Before he could make contact, Blaine threw himself on top of Jericho and took the chair shot flush across his back. Miz stepped back, eyes wide, dropping the chair in surprise. The younger Ikeda writhed for a moment, but still fresh, pulled himself to his knees before stepping up to his feet. The camera caught Miz’s words.
The Miz: What’re you doing kid? This is between me and him.
Mauro Ranallo: That’s the first bit of humanity Miz has shown.
Nigel McGuinness: Miz has known this kid since he was 12 years old. This isn’t a road Mike wants to go down.
Blaine stalked Miz, looking down at him. Blaine jawed at him, and Miz put his hands up, backing up, but then took Blaine by surprise by trying to land an It Kick to Blaine’s kidney. Blaine avoided it by hitting the deck. The camera caught him dive onto the EBWF World Championship, and just as quickly Blaine whirled around to his feet, swinging the title belt wildly, aiming for Miz’s face, but Miz hit his back and rolled out of the ring before it could connect. Blaine was left holding the World Title, seething as he looked at Miz. Then he looked from Miz to the title in his hands and back to Miz again. The crowd had come unglued. Suddenly, Blaine threw the belt at Miz on the ramp. The new champion scooped it up as Blaine yelled.
Blaine Ikeda: Garbage belt for a garbage champion!
Miz looked offended as he backed up the ramp. Jericho started to stir, and Blaine took a knee beside him, helping him to a sitting position. His face was a crimson mask. They both glared up the ramp at Miz as a promo for the men’s Last Survivor match began to play.
Mauro Ranallo: It’s time for our main event… the Last Survivor match!
“New Day, New Way” hit and the crowd cheered as the Breakout Champion, Xavier Woods, made his way to the ring.
Nigel McGuinness: And here comes Xavier Woods, who actually asked to be given the number one spot in this match. Can he outlast 29 other superstars to win this match? It would certainly be impressive if he could!
When Woods was in the ring, “Kingdom” by All Good Things hit and the crowd booed as Chavo Guerrero headed to the ring. Once Chavo had entered the ring, the referee called for the bell and the two men locked up. Chavo immediately shoved Woods back towards the edge of the ring, then tried to lift him over the top rope, but Woods shoved Chavo away, then hit him with a series of punches. Woods then set Chavo up for a bulldog, but Chavo blocked it, hitting a knee to the midsection then taking Woods down with an arm drag. Chavo followed up with an elbow drop, then pulled Woods to his feet and lifted him over his shoulder. Chavo ran towards the ropes, but Woods wriggled free, landing behind Chavo, then grabbed Chavo by the legs, trying to lift him over the top rope. Chavo kicked Woods away, then turned around and hit him with a series of punches. Woods fought back with some right hands of his own, then whipped Chavo against the ropes before hitting a dropkick. As both men got to their feet, the 10 second countdown for the third entrant began. When the clock struck zero, “The Heat Goes On” by Asia hit and the crowd cheered as Paul London made his way to the ring. While London was walking down the ramp, Chavo hit Woods with a brainbuster, then as London entered the ring, he exchanged right hands with Chavo. Chavo gained the upper hand, and went to whip London into the corner, but London reversed it, whipping Chavo into the corner before hitting a corner clothesline. As Chavo staggered out of the corner, London hit him with a northern lights suplex, then turned his attention to Xavier Woods. Woods went to hit London with the Honor Roll… but London ducked out of the way and grabbed Woods from behind, hitting a tiger suplex! Woods then turned his attention back to Chavo, and tried to set him up for the Legsweep DDT, but Chavo blocked it, then hit London with the Three Amigos! Just as Chavo was hitting the third suplex, the countdown clock struck zero, and “Better Than You” blasted through the arena. The crowd booed loudly as MJF made his way to the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: And here comes Maxwell Jacob Friedman, who may have a significant advantage in this match… with the other members of Dynasty also involved in this match, the other entrants could be in trouble.
Nigel McGuinness: There are a lot of stables in this match, Mauro… not just Dynasty. There’s also The Coalition, the Bullet Club, plus several tag teams. If you’re brave enough to go solo in this match, the odds are sure to be against you.
As MJF reached the bottom of the ramp, he walked around the ring, grabbing a steel chair from ringside. MJF then unfolded the chair, and took a seat at ringside! The crowd booed, which seemed to amuse MJF greatly.
Mauro Ranallo: Well it looks like MJF is waiting for the other members of Dynasty!
The camera cut back to the ring, where Xavier Woods had Paul London against the ropes. Chavo tried to help Woods eliminate London, but London fought them both off, hitting Woods with an Enzuigiri before taking Chavo down with a superkick. Another 90 seconds passed, then “Everything Blessed” hit and KC Navarro made his way down the ramp. Instead of entering the ring, Navarro joined MJF at ringside. Back in the ring, London hit Chavo with a swinging neckbreaker, then ran against the ropes and went for a shooting star press… but Chavo rolled out of the way! As Chavo got to his feet, Woods lifted him onto his shoulders, setting him up for a fireman’s carry cutter… but Chavo wriggled free and hit Woods with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, then turned his attention back to London. Chavo hit London with a series of backhand chops, knocking him back against the ropes, then tried to lift London over the top rope. As London fought back, Xavier Woods got to his feet and ran at Chavo and London, going for a double clothesline… but Chavo and London ducked out of the way! Chavo and London then lifted Woods over the top rope, but Woods held onto the ropes and rolled back into the ring. The countdown clock struck zero once more, and “Pumped to Win” hit. The crowd booed the arrival of Ace Austin, who as expected, joined MJF and KC Navarro at ringside rather than entering the ring.
Nigel McGuinness: Dynasty are just waiting for Richard Holliday now, then they will strike!
In the ring, Chavo, London and Woods continued to battle one another, but there were no eliminations in the next 90 seconds. When the clock struck zero, “Take Over V2” hit and the crowd cheered as Christian Cage made his way to the ring. Before entering the ring, Christian yelled at the three members of Dynasty, telling them to stop being cowards and get in the ring. MJF stood up, began walking to the ring… then laughed, shook his head and sat back not. Not wanting to take on three members of Dynasty by himself, Christian rolled into the ring and went after Xavier Woods.
Mauro Ranallo: This is the second time Xavier Woods and Christian Cage have been in the ring together tonight!
Christian whipped Woods into the corner and hit him with a series of punches, then sat him on the top turnbuckle. Christian grabbed Woods and tried to throw him out of the ring, but Woods kicked him away, then hit a flying clothesline off the top rope. On the other side of the ring, London had Chavo against the ropes, and he went to hit him with a superkick… but Chavo ducked out of the way, took London down to the mat, then locked him in a single-leg Boston crab! London cried out in pain, and although he was eventually able to fight out of it, he was limping as he got to his feet. The camera cut to MJF at ringside, who was discussing strategy with KC Navarro and Ace Austin. The 10 second countdown for the next entrant began… and when the clock struck zero, “Diamonds Are Forever” hit. Richard Holliday walked out, looked around at the crowd smugly, then walked down the ramp. MJF, Navarro and Ace joined Holliday at the bottom of the ramp, then at MJF’s instruction, the four members of Dynasty walked around the ring, each member standing on a different side of the ring before they entered the ring together. Upon entering the ring, MJF went after Xavier Woods, Navarro attacked London, Holliday fought Christian and Ace took Chavo down, then stomped on him repeatedly. After beating down the other four men in the match, the four members of Dynasty stood together in the center of the ring, taunting the crowd.
Mauro Ranallo: This isn’t right, Nigel… I hope whoever is entering at number nine can rally Christian, Xavier, Paul London and Chavo so they can fight back against Dynasty.
The ten second countdown for the surprise number nine entrant began, and MJF turned to face the ramp while Navarro, Holliday and Ace grouped around him, protecting their leader from the other men in the match. When the clock struck zero, “The Suplex Assassin” hit and Alex Kane stepped out onto the stage. MJF looked worried as Alex Kane made his way down the ramp.
Nigel McGuinness: If you don’t recognise the man making his way to the ring right now, his name is Alex Kane and they call him the Suplex Assassin. Kane was previously part of Major League Wrestling, where until recently he was their National Openweight Champion. Kane has over 100 suplexes in his arsenal, and it looks like MJF is afraid of being on the receiving end of those suplexes!
MJF and the other members of Dynasty backed away to the other side of the ring, getting as far away from Alex Kane as possible. As Kane entered the ring, he looked across at MJF, smiling, then called Christian, Woods, London and Chavo towards him. He pointed across the ring at Dynasty, then counted to 5 on his right hand, as if to signify it was now 5 on 4. Standing side by side, the five men began walking towards Dynasty… but suddenly Kane stepped back, grabbing London from behind and hitting him with a German suplex! As Kane got to his feet, he grabbed Chavo, hitting him with a belly-to-belly suplex. Woods then went to hit Kane with a clothesline, but Kane ducked out of the way, then grabbed Woods and hit a fisherman suplex. Christian Cage then grabbed Kane and went for the Unprettier, but Kane blocked it, grabbed Christian from behind and hit him with a dragon suplex. Kane got to his feet, grabbed Paul London and threw him over the top rope, eliminating him. Kane then walked across the ring and shook hands with MJF and the other members of Dynasty.
Mauro Ranallo: I don’t believe this… it looks like Alex Kane is part of Dynasty! They now have a 5 on 3 advantage!
Nigel McGuinness: What a brilliant strategy this is by MJF, Mauro!
Mauro Ranallo: Brilliant? It’s cowardice, plain and simple!
As the five members of Dynasty beat down Woods, Christian and Chavo, the countdown clock struck zero and “Kingdom” by All Good Things began to play. Aiden English ran down the ramp, but before entering the ring he grabbed the chair that MJF had been sitting on earlier. As English entered the ring, Richard Holliday ran towards him… but English swung the chair, hitting Holliday over the head with it!
Mauro Ranallo: It’s still 5 on 4, but Aiden English has brought an equalizer in the form of that steel chair!
Nigel McGuinness: After that chair shot, Mauro, I think Aiden English will be hearing from Richard Holliday’s lawyer slash father!
English swung the chair at KC Navarro next, hitting him across the back with it, then drilled the chair into Ace Austin’s ribs before dropping the chair and grabbing Ace, DDTing him onto the chair! As English got to his feet, MJF tried to grab the steel chair, but English stood on it, then grabbed MJF and hit him with an uppercut, knocking him backwards. English then picked up the chair, and MJF got to his knees, begging for mercy. While English was distracted, Alex Kane grabbed him from behind, hitting a German suplex! Kane then picked up the chair and began hitting English with it repeatedly as MJF watched on, laughing. Christian Cage grabbed MJF from behind and tried to throw him out of the ring, but MJF landed on the ring apron and held onto the ropes. As Christian tried to knock MJF off the apron, Alex Kane threw the chair at Christian! Christian was able to duck out of the way, but as he did so, MJF grabbed Christian, pulling him over the ropes and throwing him to the outside.
Mauro Ranallo: Alex Kane with the assist and MJF gets his first elimination of the night!
Nigel McGuinness: That could be the first of many, Mauro!
As MJF re-entered the ring, “Superkick Party” hit and Nick Jackson made his way to the ring. The camera cut back to MJF, who was directing traffic in the ring. Alex Kane had Aiden English in the corner, and was trying to lift him over the top rope, but English was holding onto the ropes. Ace Austin and KC Navarro were double teaming Chavo Guerrero, while Richard Holliday had Xavier Woods in a headlock and was hitting him with repeated punches. As Nick Jackson entered the ring, he pointed at MJF, who ran to the other side of the ring. Navarro ran at Jackson, but Jackson hit him with a superkick! Jackson hit Ace with a superkick too, then grabbed MJF, setting him up for a powerbomb… but Alex Kane hit Jackson with a clothesline, then dragged him to his feet and hit an overhead belly-to-belly suplex. As Jackson got to his feet, MJF hit him with the Double Cross, then threw him over the top rope. MJF waved goodbye to Nick Jackson, picked up the steel chair… and after teasing hitting Chavo with it, he placed the chair in the corner, taking a seat. The crowd booed loudly.
Mauro Ranallo: The arrogance of this man… he’s taking a breather and letting the rest of Dynasty do his dirty work!
The countdown clock struck zero, and Tama Tonga made his way to the ring. As Tonga entered the ring, both Ace Austin and KC Navarro ran at him… but Tonga grabbed them both by the throat, hitting a double chokeslam! Tonga then looked over at MJF in the corner, who quickly stood up and grabbed the steel chair. Tonga didn’t seem worried, despite the chair, and walked towards MJF… but Alex Kane stood in front of Tonga, blocking him off. Tonga and Kane exchanged punches, and after gaining the upper hand, Tonga set Kane up for a double-arm DDT… but before he could hit it, MJF hit Tonga across the back with the chair! Kane then grabbed Tama Tonga, hitting him with a double underhook suplex. As Tonga got to his feet, MJF hit him with a dropkick, knocking him back against the ropes… then Alex Kane hit him with a clothesline, sending Tonga over the top rope!
Nigel McGuinness: A second elimination for Alex Kane… that’s four eliminations in total now for Dynasty!
Mauro Ranallo: The odds are still very much in Dynasty’s favor… the other superstars in this match need to come up with a strategy to try and level the playing field!
Despite it still being 5 on 3, Aiden English, Xavier Woods and Chavo Guerrero were still putting up a good fight. While Alex Kane and MJF had been dealing with Tama Tonga, English had hit Richard Holliday with the Director’s Cut, and he had Holliday on the ropes. English tried to throw Holliday over the top rope… but Alex Kane came to Holliday’s aid! Meanwhile, Chavo and KC Navarro were grappling with one another, while Xavier Woods had Ace Austin trapped in the corner and was hitting him with a series of kicks. As MJF attacked Woods to help out Austin, “Tattoo” by Mercy Drive hit and the crowd cheered as Maven made his way to the ring. As soon as he reached the ring, Maven climbed up to the top rope, then hit MJF with a missile dropkick! Both men got to their feet and Maven took MJF down with a reverse STO, then put him in the STF!
Mauro Ranallo: MJF in the STF, and right now he must be thinking “What the F?” If Maven can keep going for another 60 seconds or so, his tag team partner Kane will be entering the match, and for the first time since Dynasty entered, the other competitors won’t be outnumbered!
Nigel McGuinness: It’s going to be confusing when Kane enters though, Mauro… we’ll have two Kanes in the ring at the same time!
Mauro Ranallo: I know! It will be the Big Red Machine versus the suplexing machine.
Nigel McGuinness: Be careful Mauro, otherwise you’ll be getting an earful from Taz!
Alex Kane attacked Maven, forcing him to break the hold on MJF, then hit Maven with a gut wrench suplex. MJF and Alex Kane double teamed Maven and tried to get him over the top rope, but Maven fought back, hitting MJF with a clothesline then taking Alex Kane down with a Russian legsweep. As Maven got to his feet, he grabbed MJF and went for the M-Plosion… but MJF held onto the ropes, blocking it! As Maven got to his feet, Alex Kane grabbed him from behind, hitting the half-and-half suplex. MJF then grabbed Maven by the arm, locking in the Salt of the Earth! The ten second countdown for the next arrival began, and as the clock struck zero, flames shot up from all four turnbuckles. Red light filled the arena, and the crowd cheered as Kane ran down to the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: I think this is the fastest I’ve ever seen Kane move, Nigel!
As Kane entered the ring, MJF immediately released Maven and rolled out of the ring, going under the bottom rope to avoid eliminating himself. He yelled at the other members of Dynasty, telling them to go after Kane. Richard Holliday was busy dealing with Xavier Woods, while Ace Austin and KC Navarro were in the middle of a brawl with Aiden English and Chavo Guerrero. Alex Kane approached the Big Red Machine, and could be heard telling him “I’m the only Kane that matters!” Kane hit Alex Kane with an uppercut, knocking him back, but Alex Kane fought back with a series of punches, then set Kane up for a belly-to-belly suplex. Kane blocked it, before lifting Alex Kane over his shoulder and hitting him with the Tombstone Piledriver! The camera cut to MJF at ringside, who looked worried. MJF reached under the ring, grabbing a steel chain, then re-entered the ring and wrapped the chain around Kane’s neck, using it to choke him! At this point, “All About Tha (BOOM!)” hit and the crowd gave a mixed reaction as Adam Cole made his way to the ring.
Nigel McGuinness: And here comes Adam Cole, who has already seen two of his fellow Bullet Club members eliminated. If he can stay in the match until the other members of Bullet Club enter, Dynasty and everyone else could be in trouble!
Mauro Ranallo: Cole doesn’t appear to be his usual confident, cocky self Nigel… he looks angry, presumably because he lost that triple threat match earlier!
Sure enough, upon entering the ring Cole immediately went after Xavier Woods, who had just hit Holliday with Lost in the Woods. Cole hit Woods with a series of punches, then stepped back and went for a superkick… but Woods ducked out of the way! He then lifted Cole up onto his shoulders in a fireman’s carry, and threw him over the top rope!
Mauro Ranallo: Mamma Mia! For the second time tonight, Xavier Woods gets the better of Adam Cole!
As Woods turned around, MJF hit him with the steel chain, which he had wrapped around his fist. Laughing, MJF pulled Woods to his feet and dragged him towards the corner, slamming his head off the top rope before trying to lift Woods over the top rope. As Woods tried to fight back, Maven ran at MJF and went to hit him with a clothesline… but MJF ducked out of the way and hit Maven with a shoulder back toss, sending him over the top rope!
Nigel McGuinness: Quick reaction there from MJF!
Mauro Ranallo: I think that’s the first time he’s done something in this match without the help of his fellow Dynasty members!
The countdown clock struck zero once again, “On Fire” hit, and the crowd gave a mixed reaction as Samoa Joe entered the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: Samoa Joe entering at number 16… we are officially over halfway through this Last Survivor match!
As Samoa Joe entered the ring, Ace Austin and KC Navarro attacked him, then set him up for a double suplex… but Joe countered it, suplexing them both instead! Alex Kane then grabbed Joe from behind, setting him up for a German suplex… but Joe blocked it, turned around and lifted Alex Kane onto his shoulders, hitting a Samoan Drop. As Joe got to his feet, he locked eyes with MJF, but MJF quickly rolled under the bottom rope, getting as far away from the Samoan Destroyer as possible. Joe shrugged, then turned his attention to Xavier Woods, grabbing the Breakout Champion and hitting him with an exploder suplex.
Nigel McGuinness: Samoa Joe isn’t concerned about getting rid of Dynasty, it seems… he just wants to fight everyone!
As Joe got to his feet, Aiden English and Chavo Guerrero grabbed him, whipping him against the ropes… but Joe ran back towards them, taking them both down with a double clothesline. Joe then looked over at the only man left standing in the ring who he hadn’t locked horns with… the Big Red Machine, Kane. As Joe walked over to Kane, Kane grabbed him by the throat, setting him up for a Chokeslam, but Joe slapped his hand away, then headbutted Kane. Kane stumbled backwards, and Joe hit him with a series of kicks before whipping him into the corner. Joe sat Kane on the top rope and tried to set him up for the Muscle Buster, but Kane kicked him away and climbed down from the turnbuckle, then shoved Joe against the ropes and hit him with a clothesline. Joe went over the top rope, but he grabbed Kane as he did so and the two men landed on the ring apron. As Joe and Kane tried to get back into the ring, Ace Austin and KC Navarro hit them with respective dropkicks, eliminating them from the match! Ace and KC celebrated with a high five, but as they did so they were grabbed by English and Chavo, who threw them over the top rope!
Mauro Ranallo: That’s two of Dynasty eliminated! MJF looks livid!
MJF argued with one of the referees at ringside, then scolded Ace Austin and KC Navarro, telling them both to get to the back. “GOD (Firing Squad)” hit and Tanga Loa headed to the ring. As he reached the bottom of the ramp, Loa pointed at MJF, then ran towards him. MJF ran around the ring away from Tanga Loa, then slid into the ring. Tanga Loa slid in the ring after MJF, but as soon as he was in the ring, Alex Kane grabbed him from behind, hitting a Saito suplex. As Loa got to his feet, Alex Kane hit him with a big boot, sending him over the top rope.
Nigel McGuinness: Tanga Loa has been eliminated! That’s three eliminations each now for MJF and Alex Kane, and a total of eight eliminations for Dynasty.
With 13 superstars left to enter the Last Survivor match, there were currently six active competitors in the ring - MJF, Alex Kane, Richard Holliday, Aiden English, Chavo Guerrero, and Xavier Woods. Realizing he could no longer leave the other members of Dynasty to do his bidding, MJF went after English, while Woods fought Holliday and Chavo locked up with Alex Kane. After hitting Chavo with a series of punches, Kane set him up for a fisherman suplex… but Chavo blocked it, then hit the Three Amigos! Chavo got to his feet and celebrated, but Kane quickly got back up and grabbed Chavo from behind, hitting him with three successive German suplexes!
Mauro Ranallo: This isn’t Suplex City right now… it’s more like Suplex County!
“Jurassic Express Theme” hit and the crowd cheered as Luchasaurus made his way to the ring. Upon entering the ring, Luchasaurus exchanged right hands with Alex Kane, and after gaining the upper hand he went to whip Kane against the ropes, but Kane reversed the Irish whip, sending Luchasaurus against the ropes before hitting an overhead belly-to-belly suplex. As both men got to their feet, Kane set Luchasaurus up for the southern lights suplex… but Luchasaurus blocked it, then hit Kane with a chokeslam followed by a standing moonsault. As Luchasaurus got to his feet, MJF hit him across the back with the steel chair, knocking him down onto the ring mat. MJF then swung the chair at Aiden English, but English blocked it, grabbing the chair and snatching it off MJF! English lifted the chair up to hit MJF over the head with it, but before he could connect with the chair shot, Richard Holliday hit him with a low blow! English dropped the chair, and MJF hit him with the Double Cross onto the chair. MJF and Holliday then went to eliminate Aiden English, but before they could do so Chavo Guerrero came to his aid. MJF and Holliday began double-teaming Chavo, but then Xavier Woods got involved, grabbing MJF and hitting him with a springboard bulldog! The 10 second countdown began for the next entrant, and as the clock struck zero, “Counting Bodies Like Sheep” hit and Randy Orton made his way to the ring. Upon entering the ring, Orton began cleaning house, hitting Richard Holliday and Alex Kane with RKOs! He then grabbed MJF and set him up for an RKO, but before he could hit it, MJF scratched Orton across the eyes! Orton cried out in pain and MJF tried to toss him over the top rope, but Orton blocked it and hit MJF with a series of punches. Despite Dynasty now being outnumbered 5 to 3, there were no further eliminations before Kevin Steen came in at number 20. Upon entering the ring, Steen immediately went after Randy Orton, hitting him with a series of punches before whipping him against the ropes. As Orton ran back towards him, Steen went for the pop-up powerbomb… but Orton jumped over Steen and grabbed him from behind, hitting an inverted headlock backbreaker! Steen looked dazed as he got to his feet, and Orton hit him with the RKO, then dragged him to his feet and threw him over the top rope, eliminating him.
Nigel McGuinness: Kevin Steen eliminated faster than you can say booyaka! You have to wonder if he made a mistake going after The Viper, Randy Orton.
There were no further eliminations in the next few minutes as Colten Gunn, Elias Samson and Austin Gunn entered the ring, taking the total number of active competitors in the match to 11. The three members of Kingdom in the match were brawling with Dynasty, Woods was exchanging punches with Randy Orton, while Austin and Colten Gunn were beating down Luchasaurus. Suddenly, the sound of shattered glass echoed throughout the arena, and the crowd went wild as Stone Cold Steve Austin drove down to the ring in a black pickup truck.
Mauro Ranallo: Stone Cold means business, and I think we all know who he will be targeting in this match!
Austin exited the truck with a beer in his hand, which he drank before entering the ring. As soon as he was in the ring, he charged towards MJF, taking him down with a Lou Thesz Press then hitting him with mounted punches. Alex Kane and Richard Holliday tried to attack Austin, but the Texas Rattlesnake hit them both with Stone Cold Stunners, then turned his attention back to back to MJF. Austin gave MJF the middle fingered salute, then went for the Stunner… but MJF blocked it, then rolled out of the ring and climbed into Austin’s pickup truck, reversing it back up the ramp.
Mauro Ranallo: MJF getting the hell out of Dodge… but he went under the bottom rope, so he hasn’t been eliminated!
Austin watched MJF leave, then turned around… and was hit with a clothesline from Xavier Woods, sending him over the top rope! Austin looked furious as he stormed back up the ramp, presumably going after MJF.
Nigel McGuinness: Xavier Woods has been in this match for over 35 minutes, but that’s only his second elimination of the night! It just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how many opponents you eliminate, as long as you can survive for as long as possible.
“Bombshell” by Powerman 5000 hit, and the crowd cheered as D-Von Dudley made his way to the ring. Before entering the ring, D-Von grabbed a table, which he set up at ringside. D-Von then entered the ring and the Gunn brothers went to hit him with a double superkick, but he ducked out of the way, grabbing Colten Gunn and hitting him with a back drop before hitting Austin Gunn with a swinging neckbreaker. As D-Von Dudley and Xavier Woods worked together to try and eliminate both members of the Gunn Club, Luchasaurus locked horns with Randy Orton, while Aiden English, Elias and Chavo beat down Richard Holliday and Alex Kane. There were no further eliminations before the clock struck zero and Edge made his way to the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: Just five more men left to enter, starting with this man… last year’s Royal Rumble winner, Edge!
Upon entering the ring, Edge immediately joined Randy Orton, and the two men worked together to get Luchasaurus into the corner. Edge ran at Luchasaurus and hit a corner dropkick, then as Luchasaurus staggered out of the corner, Orton went for a big boot… but Luchasaurus ducked out of the way and grabbed both members of Rated RKO by the throat, setting them up for a double chokeslam! Edge and Orton blocked it, then hit Luchasaurus with a double suplex. They tried to lift Luchasaurus over the top rope, but Luchasaurus grabbed onto the bottom rope and wrapped his arms and legs around it. Edge and Orton stomped on Luchasaurus repeatedly, trying to force him to let go, but Luchasaurus held on tight. Another 90 seconds passed, “Bombshell” by Powerman 5000 hit for the second time, and Bubba Ray Dudley made his way to the ring. As Bubba Ray entered the ring, he slapped D-Von on the back then pointed at Edge and Orton, who were still trying to eliminate Luchasaurus. The Dudley Boyz snuck up behind Rated RKO and grabbed them by the legs, then lifted them up… but Edge and Orton kicked them away! As Orton hit Bubba Ray with a series of punches, Edge grabbed D-Von and threw him over the top rope on the other side of the ring, where D-Von had placed the table earlier. D-Von landed on the ring apron, but Edge charged towards him and hit a Spear, sending D-Von through the table! A few seconds later, Orton lifted Bubba Ray onto his shoulders and threw him over the top rope, eliminating him.
Nigel McGuinness: The Dudley Boyz have both been eliminated!
There were no further eliminations for the next minute or so, then “You’re the Best Around” hit and Prince Devitt headed to the ring. Devitt’s time in the Last Survivor match was short-lived; almost as soon as he had entered the match, he was set upon by the Gunn Club, who beat him down before taking it in turns to hit Devitt with the Famouser. Austin and Colten then dragged Devitt to his feet, shoved him back against the ropes and hit him with a double superkick, sending him over the top rope. As the Gunn brothers celebrated, the camera cut to the other side of the ring, where Chavo and Elias had just thrown Richard Holliday out of the ring. Austin and Colten went after Chavo and Elias, then the camera cut to Alex Kane, who had just sat Aiden English on the top turnbuckle. Kane climbed the turnbuckles and set English up for a superplex, but English blocked it, then threw Kane to the outside!
Mauro Ranallo: Alex Kane has been eliminated! If MJF decides to re-enter this match, he’ll have to try and win it without the help of his cronies!
Nigel McGuinness: Don’t disrespect the rest of Dynasty like that, Mauro! Ace Austin, KC Navarro, Richard Holliday and Alex Kane can all be proud of their performances tonight. Especially Alex Kane; what a debut from the Suplex Assassin!
“Tarzan Boy” by Baltimora hit and the crowd cheered as Jungle Boy made his way to the ring. There were no further eliminations in the next 90 seconds, then as the countdown clock struck zero for the final time, “Superkick Party” hit and Matt Jackson headed to the ring.
Mauro Ranallo: All 30 superstars have now entered the Last Survivor match, and there are 12 competitors left in the match… Xavier Woods and Chavo Guerrero, who started the match and have both been in there for almost 45 minutes now. We’ve also got Aiden English, Elias Samson, Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy, Austin and Colten Gunn, Edge, Randy Orton, the final entrant Matt Jackson… and if he decides to actually come back, the cowardly leader of Dynasty known as Maxwell Jacob Friedman.
As Matt Jackson entered the ring, he caught Luchasaurus with a superkick, then went after Jungle Boy, hitting him with a series of punches. Jungle Boy fought back with some right hands of his own, then lifted him up, powerbombing him over the top rope! As Jungle Boy turned around, Chavo Guerrero took him down with a clothesline, then dragged him towards the ropes… but before he could eliminate Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus came to his partner’s aid, hitting Chavo with a big boot and sending him over the top rope.
Nigel McGuinness: Chavo Guerrero has finally been eliminated! What a performance from the third generation superstar!
Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus turned their attention to the Tag Team Champions, Edge and Randy Orton, while the Gunn Club fought Aiden English and Elias. Xavier Woods, who had now been in the match the longest, was crouched in the corner, giving himself a moment to recover. After hitting Edge with a series of punches, Jungle Boy leapt onto his shoulders, going for a hurricanrana… but Edge blocked it, then ran towards the ropes and powerbombed Jungle Boy to the outside! Luchasaurus tried to avenge his partner, going for a big boot, but Edge sidestepped it and Luchasaurus landed on the ropes. A split second later, Randy Orton hit Luchasaurus with a dropkick, eliminating him.
Mauro Ranallo: Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus have been eliminated by Rated RKO!
Edge and Orton then went after Xavier Woods, while the camera cut to Aiden English, who had Austin Gunn locked in the Cobra Clutch. Colten Gunn came to his brother’s aid, hitting English with a dropkick and forcing him to break the hold. Colten hit English with a series of punches, then suplexed him over the top rope, eliminating him. As Colten tried to check on his brother, Elias grabbed him, hitting the Drift Away! Elias then threw Colten Gunn over the top rope, eliminating him, before grabbing Austin Gunn and dragging him towards the ropes. Elias went to powerbomb Austin over the top rope, but Austin countered with a back body drop, eliminating Elias! Austin Gunn then went after Edge, leaving Xavier Woods to fend for himself against Randy Orton. Suddenly “Better Than You” hit and the crowd booed as MJF drove Stone Cold Steve Austin’s pickup truck back to the ring.
Nigel McGuinness: Edge, Orton, Woods and Austin Gunn thought they were the final four, but actually they’re the final five! MJF is back!
After parking the truck at the bottom of the ramp, MJF got out and began taunting the four men in the ring. MJF walked around the ring and went to grab another steel chair… but before he could, he was attacked by someone in the crowd! The camera zoomed in to reveal it was Stone Cold Steve Austin, and after slamming MJF’s head off the ringside barrier, Stone Cold climbed over the barrier and threw MJF into the ring. Stone Cold then took his truck back and drove away as Edge, Orton, Xavier Woods and Austin Gunn surrounded MJF.
Mauro Ranallo: I think Maxwell Jacob Friedman is finally going to get his comeuppance!
As MJF pleaded with the four men for mercy, Edge charged towards him, hitting a Spear! Edge then dragged MJF to his feet, passing him to Randy Orton, who hit the RKO! As Edge and Orton stepped back, Austin Gunn grabbed MJF, hitting the Famouser! Finally, Woods finished him off with Lost in the Woods, then threw him over the top rope. With MJF taken care of, Woods turned his attention to the other three men in the ring. Austin Gunn put his arm around Woods and pointed at Rated RKO, suggesting they work together to take out Edge and Orton. Woods nodded, but Edge and Orton immediately charged towards them, hitting Woods and Austin with a series of punches. As Edge fought Austin Gunn, Orton set Woods up for a gutwrench elevated neckbreaker, but broke free and hit Orton with a backstabber. Woods dragged Orton to the corner and hit a tornado DDT, then tried to throw Orton out of the ring. Meanwhile, across the ring, Edge hit Austin Gunn with the Edgecution, then threw him over the top rope and went to help Orton.
Nigel McGuinness: Austin Gunn has gone over the top rope… but I don’t think both of his feet touched the floor!
The camera cut to a close-up of Austin Gunn, who had one foot on the floor but the other on the edge of the ring. As Edge and Orton double-teamed Xavier Woods, Austin climbed back in the ring, confirmed with the referee he was still in the match, then quickly slid under the bottom rope and crouched down at ringside. Across the ring, Edge whipped Woods against the ropes then hit him with a clothesline, sending him over the top rope. As Orton and Edge looked at one another, Edge yelled “let’s do this!” and Orton nodded. The two men locked up, and Orton put Edge in a headlock, but Edge broke free and hit Orton with a series of punches, then went to whip him against the ropes. Orton reversed the Irish whip, sending Edge against the ropes, then as Edge ran back towards him, Orton went for a big boot, but Edge ducked underneath it and grabbed Orton from behind, hitting the Edge-o-matic. As Orton got to his feet, Edge went for a Spear… but Orton blocked it, dragged Edge towards the ropes, then hit a rope-hung DDT. Orton began punching the mat, and as Edge got to his feet, Orton set him up for the RKO… but Edge blocked it, shoved Orton into the ropes, then hit a spinning heel kick, sending Orton over the top rope! Edge celebrated, thinking he had won… but Austin Gunn slid back into the ring and grabbed Edge, throwing him over the top rope!
Mauro Ranallo: I don’t believe it! Austin Gunn is the Last Survivor!
As Edge protested with one of the referees at ringside, a replay aired showing that Austin Gunn hadn’t been eliminated. Edge watched the replay and shook his head, clearly disappointed. Edge and Orton then walked up the ramp together as Austin Gunn celebrated in the ring. Austin climbed the turnbuckle and held up both hands triumphantly as Last Survivor went off the air.
