A NIGHT OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING
IN ASSOCIATION WITH ICONIC MEDIA LLC
A NIGHT OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING
Crumb: WELCOME EVERYONE TO CHAOS!!
“Saints of Los Angeles” by Mötley Crüe blares as the show pans about the capacity crowd of about a thousand or so people. Signs, banners, and posters are sprinkled throughout the crowd such as “Haters Gonna Hate”, “Stasi Herveaux: The FAKEST Champion”, and “We Miss You, Joshua”
Nelson: We have quite the show instore for you tonight and I know that you all cannot wait after the outcome of our Lord of Chaos special!
Crumb: Not only did we see Lady Bliss successfully retain her IPW Heavyweight Championship, one has to wonder what state she’s in?
Rose: I think what people are really wondering what the hell is going on with that title belt that Brooklyn Holloway presented to Stasi Herveaux?
Nelson: It seems to have caused a tremendous amount of controversy and both Herveaux and Brooklyn Holloway have been quite mum on the subject.
Crumb: Oh I wouldn't say that. You should really go and see Stasi’s promo.
Rose: Well whatever the case is… I just hope that Mr. Samson returns soon now that he’s out of the hospital and all.
Nelson: But we have a show that is the focus tonight. We have a double debut match in which we will see Kasey Winterborn take on Effie Bingham. Now Effie seems to have a lot riding on this match given that she is associated with our Iconic Professional Wrestling Heavyweight Champion, 2019 Lady of Chaos Bliss.
Crumb: Well Effie’s fiancé… sorry husband? Well whatever, he didn’t fare too well on the last show and so maybe she’s looking to prove that it was a mistake and they are the new power couple of IPW?
Rose: I love how you two start talking about Effie and then neglect to mention Kasey. I mean, that’s messed up. I don’t know who she is exactly… but I have heard of her name before so I’m intrigued as to what they both have in store for us.
Nelson: Speaking of St. John Cross… he is going to be facing off against Drake Jones who has the worst record in Iconic Professional Wrestling to date. Maybe this is the chance for him to turn things around given that Cross was not able to get the victory in his last match?
Crumb: Oh I don’t doubt that Drake Jones thinks that this is his chance. If he can keep his mind focused and all that, he stands a good chance at breaking this losing streak of his.
Rose: I’m still flabbergasted as to how Drake Jones is still employed in IPW? I thought that Mr. Samson had standards when it came to the talent on his roster?
Nelson: We do have quite the interesting show and the word “interesting” does not even begin to describe the next match which will take place between Willow Rainn and Penelope.
Crumb: Both of these Lady Icons have…”interesting” dispositions and are looking to walk out as the winner. Perhaps Penelope more than Willow because well… have you seen her Twitter?
Rose: I think it’s all a ploy for attention. Willow on the other hand, she’s proven time and time again that she’s a real, legitimate threat.
Nelson: I think that one of the matches that people are highly anticipating is the one that will take place between Jessie Roberts and Astrid Samson. Given that Samson has gone and put everyone on notice that she is back to her usual self.
Crumb: For months she’s been… well a shell of Astrid Sedin. Now that she’s using her married name professionally, what better way for her to get back into the swing of things than against an opponent she knows very well?
Rose: If there was any time for Jessie’s lucky streak to come into play… this is it. Otherwise we are going to see the same result that we always do. I hope that Jessie manages to come out as the victor and knock “ASS”trid down a few pegs.
Nelson: In this week’s Iconic Professional Wrestling Television Championship match, our reigning champion Aaron Kostan will be putting his belt on the line against hot and somewhat still newcomer Kono Masaki.
Crumb: Both men are phenomenal competitors so tonight’s match is certainly going to be one for the ages. I am wondering if Kostan will be able to keep up with Masaki’s Japanese style of wrestling?
Rose: I guess we’re just going to have to wait and see what happens. Though like you said, it is going to be interesting to say the least. They both have different wrestling styles.
Nelson: But out main event for sure is going to be leaving people on the edges of their seats as The New Regime is looking to shut the haters up. Eric Calloway, Dexter Calloway and the Real Champion Stasi Herveaux take on the team of the NEW Iconic Professional Wrestling Tag Team Champions Cheriè and Victoire, collectively known as Savoir Faire, and Iconic Professional Wrestling Heavyweight Champion 2019 Lady of Chaos Bliss.
Crumb: There are some very passionate people in that match and so the chances of this blowing up in everyone’s faces… is highly probable. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone even makes an appearance and goes after a certain false champion.
Rose: Oh god I hope that doesn’t happen. I really would like to just see a match happen without any butt hurt Icon trying to stick their nose in where it doesn’t belong.
Nelson: You do have a point, Rose Marie. But without further adieu let Chaos begin!
Torres: The following DEBUT match is scheduled for ONE FALL with a TEN MINUTE time limit!
The opening electronic strings of "Warrior" fade into the arena, growing louder as it progresses. The lights start pulsing in time with the start of the drumbeat, and as the lyrics begin a figure appeared silhouetted against the backdrop.
♫ I got my head high, my chest out, my eyes open wide
I got no fear, got no doubt and, god, I feel alive ♫
I got no fear, got no doubt and, god, I feel alive ♫
The spotlight kicked on, shining down onto Kasey Winterborn. With a slight smile on her face and determination in her eyes, she raises her hands in the air to the overwhelming cheers of the crowd.
♫ I'm not stopping for ya, I'm a f*cking warrior
I'm a warrior
Walking through fire like I'll never learn
Waiting forever and now it's my turn
Stronger than ever, I'm ready to burn
Na-na-na na-na-na, I'm a warrior ♫
I'm a warrior
Walking through fire like I'll never learn
Waiting forever and now it's my turn
Stronger than ever, I'm ready to burn
Na-na-na na-na-na, I'm a warrior ♫
After a moment of posing, she smiles and begins her descent down the ramp. Along the way she looks around at the crowd cheering for her, reaching out and slapping hands with a couple of fans at ringside. She slides into the ring under the bottom rope and kips up to her feet, where she runs and leaps up to the middle rope at the turnbuckle and glances out at the crowd, smiling as she raises a fist in the air.
Nelson: Kasey Winterborn is looking to make a strong debut here on Chaos, but given the Twitter viciousness of Bingham, I wonder how it is going to be for her?
Crumb: The singer of Kasey’s theme mentions how they are a warrior and I wouldn’t be surprised if she picked it for that exact reason.
Rose: She’s got one heck of a fight ahead of her that’s for sure. I’m hoping these two ladies have what it takes to stay.
”Look What You Made Me Do” by Taylor Swift plays and Effie appears at the top of the ramp as the base begins and walks down immediately, not even stopping when flipping off the occasional fan. She gets to the apron and pulls herself up. She puts her back to the ropes before winking and flipping herself backwards over the top rope, landing on her feet on the other side. With an evil grin she backs up into a corner, leaning and waiting.
Nelson: Now everyone knows Effie Bingham is associated with 2019 Lady of Chaos Bliss and that she got into it with Brooklyn Hollway on social media. But will she be able to live up to the hype and walk out of here with a win?
Crumb: That is still left to be seen but what I do know is that she’s more than likely going to be putting up one heck of a fight.
Rose: All bark… no bite. I mean, she’s got a theme song by Taylor Swift for crying out loud!
The referee looks at both Lady Icons to make sure that they are ready before calling for the bell.
DING DING DING!!!
---Debut Match: Kasey Winterborn vs. Effie Bingham---
Almost immediately, Effie Bingham runs across the ring and hits Kasey in the mouth with a forearm smash. She follows it up with a second and then a third, knocking Kasey back against the ropes. Smirking, Effie fires off a few chops to continue trying to wear Kasey down before shooting her across the ring. She steps toward the middle of the ring to meet Kasey on the rebound, leaping into the air and catching her with a spinning wheel kick! Kasey crashes to the mat. Effie goes for the quick cover.
Kasey tries to pull herself back up to her feet to change the early momentum in the match. Effie runs and hits Kasey with a few quick kicks to try and wear her down further. She then grabs and pulls Kasey in toward her, snapping off a Russian leg sweep! Effie goes for the cover once again.
Nelson: You can tell that Bingham realizes just how important this debut match might be, because she is definitely doing everything she can to try and pick up the quick win!
Crumb: It’s a good strategy that might turn into a great one if she can pull it off!
Rose: But let’s not pretend that she’s definitely not capable of pulling it off!
Effie grabs Kasey and locks in a front facelock before trying to bring her back up to her feet. She hits Kasey with a forearm smash to try and wear her down further. Once the two are standing, Effie shoves Kasey away. Effie tries to send her to the mat with a superkick. Kasey just barely ducks underneath the attempt! She waits for Effie to turn around and face her before leaping into the air and hitting Effie with an enziguri! The impact drops Effie down to a knee. She tries to pull herself back up to her feet, but before she can, Kasey runs up and plants her on the mat with a DDT! Kasey hooks the leg for the cover.
Nelson: Winterborn is beginning to turn things around and this might not be good for Bingham!
Rose: I guess we’ll have to see, won’t we?!
Kasey grabs Effie by the head and brings her back up to her feet. She nails Effie in the chest with a series of chops to try and wear her down further.
Crowd: WOOO! WOOO!
Kasey then shoots Effie across the ring and waits for her to come back on the rebound. In an effort to turn the match back to her favor, Effie tries to catch Kasey by surprise with a hurricanrana! Unfortunately for her, Kasey catches her in the air and delivers a powerbomb!
Nelson: WHAT A COUNTER!
Effie tries to bring herself back up to her feet, but Kasey grabs her legs and locks in Wicked Little Machine (sharpshooter w/reverse facelock)!
Crumb: WHAT CAN EFFIE BINGHAM BE THINKING AS KASEY WINTERBORN LOCKS HER IN WICKED LITTLE MACHINE?!?!
Rose: Probably, “where in the hell is my husband at when I need him?!”
Effie’s eyes go wide in pain as she almost immediately begins to tap out. The referee calls for the bell.
Torres: The winner of this match…Kasey Winterborn!!!
Nelson: Effie Bingham started off well but in the end, Kasey Winterborn picks up the win and shows Iconic Professional Wrestling just how dangerous she can be!
Crumb: She has put the Icons of this company on notice but what else does she have in store for us?
Rose: Well let’s just hope she sticks around long enough to show us.
Broadcasting monthly. Only on Facebook Watch
The camera slowly pans the crowd, stopping on one woman as it does.
The now-former California Wrestling stalwart, and current QCPW World Champion and NVR Women's Champion smiles and waves to the camera as fans try to crowd in, camera-bombing the shot. Butterscotch Monroe is quick to step in microphone in hand and a question on her lips.
Butterscotch: I am here now with Samantha Tolson-Anderson...what brings you here to Chaos?
Samantha looks at Butterscotch and grins.
Samantha: Can't a girl enjoy some wrestling since she's in the area?
Butterscotch: We're all curious, since the feed on Inertia suddenly went blank, and California Wrestling announced it was ceasing operations shortly after...does this mean what I think it means?
Samantha: Let's not jump all the sharks here honey. I know you want a big scoop, but I honestly don't have one for you...yet.
Butterscotch: Yet? Are you in negotiations with IPW?
Samantha grins widely.
Samantha: One never knows the places one may go. If I were in contract discussions with IPW, you know I couldn't discuss them!
Butterscotch looks disappointed, then Samantha speak again.
Samantha: Let's leave it at this...y'all may see The Pretty Little Murder Machine back here sooner rather than later...now...if you don't mind hon, I'd like to enjoy the rest of the show!
Samantha takes a drink from her big cup of beer, winking at Butterscotch.
Butterscotch: There you have it. We’ll have to wait to see if and or when Samantha Tolson-Anderson shows up as an official Icon here in IPW.
The camera cuts back to the commentary table.
Crumb: WHAT CAN EVERYONE BE THINKING AS SAMANTHA TOLSON-ANDERSON IS HERE AT THE ICONIC ARENA?!?!
Rose: Probably, “I hope she’s enjoying the show just like we are?!”
Torres: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL with a TEN MINUTE limit time!
"Rebirthing" by Skillet begins to play. The lights in the arena dim with a sole spotlight on the stage. In the spotlight stands St. John Cross, dressed in his white wrestling gear consisting of a long white leather coat over white pants and white boots, and bobbing his head to the music's beat. He smiles big for cameras and the crowd gives him a solid pop (especially the female contingency). Before making this way to ringside, he does the sign of the cross and points upward. As he makes his way to the ring, he fist bumps some of the fans but doesn't take his eyes off the ring. He slides under the bottom rope and pops up effortlessly to his feet. He slowly spins around to check out the audience that will watch him work before facing the camera and giving it a slight nod and wink. He removes his coat and backs up into his corner to await further instructions from the official.
Nelson: St. John Cross lost his debut on the last Chaos and this is the perfect chance for him to turn things around.
Crumb: I am anxious to see how this SiN persona comes into play or how it does. Hopefully St. John is able to show us more of what he can do.
Rose: I like how you used the term ‘hopefully’ because I still want him to do something… something worth talking about.
The opening line of "Bad Motherf*cker" By Machine Gun Kelly slams out through the speakers as Drake Jones steps out from the back, his ginger hair wet as he makes his way down to the ring talking trash as he looks around the ringside area. He slides up onto the ring apron and leans against the top rope before throwing his leg back and stepping into the ring.
Nelson: Drake Jones… well I guess we could say that he has not been having the best of luck. I am pretty sure we say that every week… but this Icon is showing no signs of quitting.
Crumb: He’s stepped up and took on every person that they’ve put in front of him thus far. And honestly, I would like to see him win a match on his own.
Rose: He might show no signs of quitting but what has he down to make us remember who he is other than the obvious losing streak?
The referee looks at both Icons to make sure that they are ready for the beginning of the upcoming match. He then calls for the bell, marking the beginning of the match.
DING DING DING!!!
---St. John Cross vs. Drake Jones---
St. John charges forward and hits Drake in the mouth with a forearm smash. He follows it up with a second and then a third. Drake stumbles back from the impact. St. John grabs him and tries to shoot him across the ring. Drake reverses the attempt and waits for St. John to come back on the rebound before tripping him up with a drop toe-hold! St. John's face bounces off of the mat. St. John nonetheless tries to pull himself back up to his feet. Once he's standing, Drake steps toward St. John and hits him in the mouth with a right jab. He follows it up with a second and then a third. St. John leaps in the air and hits Drake with an enziguri!
Nelson: That was pretty perfectly timed!
Crumb: I agree with you there. He telescoped that move to hit Drake at just the right time.
Rose: The dude got lucky… plain and simple.
Drake regains his footing as St. John leaps into the air again, catching him with a dropkick! Drake crashes hard to the mat. St. John hooks the leg and goes for the cover.
Drake tries to pull himself back up to his feet. St. John bounces off of the ropes and tries to send him back to the mat once again with a bulldog! Drake counters by slamming St. John down to the mat to block the attempt. St. John slowly pulls himself back up to his feet, turning around and getting hit with a European uppercut! The impact sends St. Johning staggering back into the ropes. St. John bounces off and stumbles toward Drake, who lifts him into the air and delivers a snap powerslam! He hooks the leg go for the cover.
Nelson: It is beginning to get a bit back and forth between these two!
Crumb: This could be interesting...
Rose: You guys do realize this is Drake Jones you’re talking about?
St. John slowly tries to bring himself back up to his feet. Drake closes the gap and hits St. John with a series of knee shots. Drake grabs St. John, pulls him in, and tries to set him up for an implant DDT! St. John spins out of Drake's grasp and rolls him up. The referee drops down and counts.
Drake pulls himself back up to his feet. St. John runs at Drake and hits him in the mouth with a forearm smash that sends him stumbling back. St. John bounces off of the ropes, picks up speed, and tries to send Drake stumbling with a second one! Unfortunately for St. John, Drake cuts St. John off with a sidewalk slam! St. John groggily staggers back up to his feet. Drake gets St. John into the air and slams him down to the mat with The Killswitch (Air Raid Crash/White Noise)!
Crumb: WHAT CAN ST. JOHN CROSS BE THINKING AS HE IS DROPPED WITH THE KILLSWITCH BY DRAKE JONES?!?!
Torres: The winner of this match...Drake Jones!!!
Nelson: Talk about an impressive win for Drake Jones!
Crumb: I get the feeling this is THE win that’s going to put Drake on a long lasting win streak!
Rose: Yeah… I highly doubt that is going to be happening.
Oliver Black appeared disheveled. His usual composed appearance has become messy. His tie loose, his tight top not loose as his hair fell in his face. He paced back and forth across the monitor screen in the arena.
Oliver Black: It has been weeks now since I lost MY Heavyweight Championship. And for weeks I have refused an interview, refused to comment. Not because I was in my feelings but because I didn't know what to say. I was sure this would be a moment that humbled Oliver Black, this would be the moment where I said something along the lines of no thank you is required because being your WORLD heavyweight champion was MY HONOR!
Oliver paused from pacing and manually chuckled to himself.
Oliver Black: But THAT would be a LIE! Because honor doesn't live here in IPW! Distrust and misguided hate sure. Narcissism, nepotism and favoritism absolutely. But HONOR?
Olivee shook his head a disgusted look upon his face.
Oliver Black: Because if ANYONE in this company DESERVED honor it was ME! For near a god damn YEAR I put my blood sweat and tears into this company. Into obtaining and retaining the IPW Heavyweight Championship! And for everything I did for this company, for these people, I was given NOTHING in return! For FIVE MONTHS I reigned as Heavyweight Champion and for FIVE MONTHS I was shown ZERO respect, given ZERO honor by this company!
Oliver made a zero with his hand into the camera.
Oliver Black: And for a moment I thought it was me, maybe I didn't deserve the accolades I knew I did. Maybe I didn't deserve the congratulatory tweets, maybe I didn't deserve the RESPECT from the locker room, I knew I did. But when I lost the heavyweight title something happened to me. When I lost the heavyweight title I thought I was going to lose myself, but instead I gained something far more greater... My vision. And now that the blinding light that was golden is no longer there to distract me I could finally see clearly. And when I opened my eyes I saw it WASN'T me after all. I wasn't crazy... No. I didn't receive the honor I deserved because there was none to give!
My reign as champion should have been SPECIAL, it should have MEANT something. And it did... To me. But it didn't to these people. And that was no fault of their own!? Because for five months instead of this company putting their faith, money and energy into making their champion mean something they choose to make it... Make ME a JOKE!
For five months I walked out to that ring with a purpose. I studied my opponents and calculated my every move to ensure I was STILL IPW Heavyweight Champion. And for what? So that the commentary team could be fed lines to mock my accomplishments and discredit my victories? So the commentary team could feed the sheep lies about me being weak, being a coward? As if my reign were some sort of fluke? There was NO HONOR in that.
For five months I BEGGED for competition. For five months I came out here and issued open challenges for my championship. For five months I asked Joshua Samson to give me the strongest competition we had. Because I wanted to prove to the roster, to prove to these PEOPLE that I may not have been the champion they wanted but I was the champion they deserved! And FOR WHAT!? Not for honor…
Oliver threw out his arms in confusion before he placed them on his hips and looked down at the floor softly shaking his head. He continued but now spoke very softly
Oliver Black: I was never taken seriously. Not by Rose and the Commentary Team, not by Joshua Samson and the Creative Team and definitely not by people like Stasi Herveaux. My title reign should have meant something, but instead... Instead it was embarrassing. For every step I made as Champion, every accomplishment I obtained in this company has been absolutely sh*t on.
Since day one as heavyweight champion when Stasi Herveaux attacked me after the greatest match this company has ever seen. All the way to the night I lost that championship by outside interference my title reign has been made not something to be proud of but something to laugh at.
For five months I fought tooth and nail to make this company and that championship mean something. And for five months IPW made a mockery of it. For five months IPW mocked my reign by giving Astrid Sedin's tumultuous relationship with the boss more t.v. time than its champion. No honor. For five months IPW mocked my reign by allowing competitors to make up championships that out ranked their own. No honor. For five months IPW mocked my reign by awarding a championship to a competitor who time and time again has failed to earn one of her own. No honor. For five months IPW has lost its focus! For five months it hasn't only mocked me but each and every icon in the locker room. I have watched some of its BEST competitors, its best WRESTLERS walk out that door while IPW chose instead to put on a daytime soap opera. The IPW fans didn't care about the most legendary championship reign in IPW history because IPW didn’t allow them to!
Oliver pulled frantically at his own hair.
Oliver Black: The IPW universe has become BLIND to the trash they are fed on a regular basis. IPW has become a poison to wrestling and these fans ask for more. But tonight all of that changes. Starting tonight I will open ALL your eyes. Starting tonight I will remove the blindfold and reveal IPW for the joke that is has become! Tonight there will be NO HONOR. One by one, night by night I will embarrass this company just like it has embarrassed Brianna Rissi and Corey Lazarus... Like it has embarrassed Michael Graves... Like it has embarrassed *redacted*! ... Like it has embarrassed allllll of you. Like it has embarrassed ME! The only question is... Where will I begin?
Oliver laughed villainously as he backed away from the camera and into the darkness.
Nelson: This next match could be an interesting one, because if both of these Lady Icons focused on wrestling...there would be one hell of a wrestling match...
Rose: And yet, I can almost guarantee that that's NOT what you'll end up getting!
Crumb: Knowing these two.. probably not.
Torres: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL with a TEN MINUTE time limit!
”Footsteps (Go Higher)” by Pop Evil plays throughout the arena as smoke begins to fill the ramp. Out of nowhere, Penelope begins crawling seductively while yanking on her hair here and there. The fans chant freak as she hissed at them. She finally made it to the ring and lays on her belly snarling while she waits for her opponent.
Nelson: After getting a win in her debut on the last Chaos, Penelope is looking to keep that going but she is not going to have an easy match here against Willow Rainn.
Crumb: Penelope isn’t the same woman that we first saw all those weeks ago when the whole Samsons’ drama started up. I’m quite liking this vicious side.
Rose: I think it’s all a ploy to get our attention away from the fact that she’s not confident and has more family drama going on than ASStrid.
"Frankenstein" plays as Willow walks out to a roar of boos as she didn't let that bother her as she was in a trance her body swaying around as she walks down the ramp as she gets into the ring she sits on the bottom turnbuckle as she looks up at the ceiling muttering things to herself as her theme dies down.
Nelson: Willow Rainn is someone that commands respect from the moment that she steps out from behind that curtain… and she has done everything right to prove that she deserves it.
Crumb: She has been flourishing since the Dark Karnival disbanded and I think that going solo was the wisest decision that she could’ve made.
Rose: While yes, she’s been impressive… she needs to do something to break out of the shadows of everyone one else who’s been impressive thus far.
The referee looks at both Icons to make sure they are ready. Penelope looks focused and Willow merely chuckles. The referee then calls for the bell making the match officially underway.
DING DING DING!!!
---Penelope vs. Willow Rainn---
The two Lady Icons approach each other near the center of the ring, Willow trying to use her speed to keep Penelope away. Sure enough, it seems to have the desired effect as a frustrated Penelope has no choice but to step forward and try to hit Willow in the mouth with a forearm smash. Willow ducks underneath the attempt and ends up behind Penelope on the mat. Penelope turns to face her, Willow steps toward her, and delivers a side kick to Penelope's ribs. Penelope doubles over in pain. Willow blasts her in the mouth with a hard elbow shot! Penelope stumbles as Willow chuckles and leaps into the air, nailing Penelope in the mouth with a hard knee blast! Penelope wisely creates a bit of space before trying to bring herself back up to her feet. Willow waits, her eyes locked onto Penelope the entire time.
Nelson: Willow Rainn has so much precision behind everything that she does! If you are her opponent, you really cannot afford to let her get going.
Rose: Penelope better watch out or it is going to be her downfall.
Crumb: I… I was thinking the exact same thing.
Once Penelope is finally back on her feet, Willow Rainn chuckles. She picks up speed and bounces off of the ropes, seemingly setting Penelope up for a huge clothesline! Unfortunately for her, as soon as she gets close to Penelope, Penelope leaps into the air and sends Willow crashing to the mat with a spinning wheel kick! Penelope quickly hooks the leg for the cover.
Penelope grabs Willow and tries to drag her back up to her feet. Penelope nails Willow in the mouth with a forearm smash to knock her groggy before pulling Willow in. Penelope gets her into position for a Russian leg sweep, but before she can send Willow to the mat, Willow responds by blasting Penelope with an elbow shot! Penelope stumbles back from the impact, but quickly recovers. Willow closes the gap and drives her knee hard into Penelope's ribs. Willow tries to spin Penelope into position for a swinging neckbreaker. Penelope spins out of Willow's grasp and rolls her up for the pin attempt.
TH---Willow kicks out again!
Nelson: Rainn is a quick Lady Icon, but the faster the pace of this match gets...
Crumb: The more luck it seems that Penelope is managing to have!
Rose: Don't worry, that'll change soon!
Smirking, Penelope looks at Willow. Rainn slowly tries to drag herself back up to her feet. Penelope closes the distance and tries to wear her down with a series of hard kicks. While Willow staggers from the impact of every kick, Penelope decides to try her luck and bounce off of the ropes. She leaps into the air and tries to send Willow to the mat with a hurricanrana---only to get caught and slammed to the mat with a sitout powerbomb! Willow holds for the cover.
Nelson: I literally thought that Rainn had it right then.
Crumb: I don’t think you’re the only one… a few people are shocked but none more than Willow herself.
Rose: If Willow wants to win, she’s going to have to come up with something bigger and more impactful.
Penelope slowly drags herself back up to her feet. Willow lines herself up with her opponent. Once Penelope is standing, Willow charges forward to give a Riott Kick (spike rana)! Penelope ducks out of the way just in time!
Nelson: Oh Penelope has found the opening that she needed!
Rose: I doubt she’ll be able to do much with it.
Willow stumbles back up to her feet, only to get caught with Pen 2 Paper (running knee strike)! Willow crashes to the mat and Penelope covers.
Torres The winner of this match...Penelope!!!
Nelson: That was a back and forth battle, but in the end, Penelope picks up the win!
Crumb: Willow's not going to be happy about this...
Back turned to Willow, Penelope celebrates her win. Enraged, Willow is quick to her feet and dashes forward and connects with Deadly Poisoned Kisses (running bulldog that goes into the walls of Jericho)!
Crumb: I told you guys Willow wasn’t going to be happy!
Nelson: Penelope wants out of that hold desperately!
Rose: You think?!
Willow continues to keep the hold applied, Penelope screaming as she taps. The referee briefly tries to pull Willow off of Penelope, but Penelope doesn't let up.
Crumb: Willow is trying to break Penelope’s neck!
Rose: That’s what I’m talking about!
Nelson: This is uncalled for by Rainn! Can we get some help down here ASAP!
As if on cue, Kasey Winterborn bolts down the ramp, slides into the ring, and immediately tackles Willow to break up the hold.
Crumb: WHAT CAN EVERYONE BE THINKING AS THE NEWCOMER KASEY WINTERBORN MAKES THE SAVE?!?!
Rose: Probably, “why isn’t this Kasey chick minding her own damn business?!”
Kasey and Willow briefly exchanging strikes before Willow decides her point has been made to Penelope. Smirking, she rolls out of the ring. Kasey turns to check on Penelope. Willow heads up the ramp, ignoring the crowd response.
Nelson: Wow! Just wow!
Torres: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL with a FIFTEEN MINUTE time limit!
The haunting sounds of “Alone In A Room” by Asking Alexandria start to waft their way out through the arena’s PA system as the lights flash in varying hues of pale purple and icy blue. When the main beat hits, Astrid Sedin walks out from behind the black curtain onto the stage with a confident swagger in her step. Walking to the top of the ramp, she stops and spreads her legs apart, using her hands to fluff her hair as a twisted smirk begins to make its way onto her face. Standing there for a few moments, Astrid tilts her head back and takes in the crowd’s energy before facing the ring as the smirk reappeared on her face. She began to make her way down the ramp towards the ramp, emitting a tremendous amount of confident as she walks. Astrid reaches out to slap the hands of a few fans at ringside, but at the very last minute she jerks her hand away, holding it up as she continues towards the ring laughing as she twirls her hair around her finger.
At the bottom of the ramp, Astrid scowls and smirks at the same time towards the ring before heading off to the right hand side while holding her hands towards the fans as if to say “talk to the hand”. She quickly hops onto the ring apron and gets to her feet, looking out at the crowd before she enters the ring through the ropes before bending her knees and quickly entering under the middle rope with a twirl. Holding her arms up at level of her shoulders, Astrid shakes her head from side to side as she talks smack to the crowd before hopping down. She waits for her opponent off to the side, sitting on the middle rope with her arms spread across the top one as her music slowly fading out.
Nelson: After her husband was attacked two Chaoses ago, Samson has really returned to the woman we all know… the ruthless, vindictive Queen. I quite like that she is now using the Samson last name too.
Crumb: I don’t think it’s a coincidence either because it has become clear that it’s the Samsons versus Stasi Herveaux and Brooklyn Holloway in all of this.
Rose: It’s only ASStrid for crying out loud. It’s not like she’s something or someone worth caring about!
"Mama Said Knock You Out" by LL Cool J hits and no more then five seconds into the song, Jessie races through the curtain!
Nelson: I will not lie... Jessie Roberts is going to need a huge bout of luck if she wants to walk out of here with a win against Samson.
Crumb: And it would be her first win against Astrid too. I think she can do it but I agree… she’s going to need a lot of luck.
Rose: Jessie can do it because what’s her face isn’t in the right mental state right now.
Jessie sprints down the ramp and dives straight into the ring. She immediately focuses her attention on the Iconic Queen, tackling her down to the mat. Jessie hits her with a few strikes to try and wear her down, the fans cheering along with each one that connects! Astrid just barely creates enough space between them to crawl over to the ropes and grabbing them for dear life. The referee forces Jessie to back off for a moment.
Nelson: Well Roberts sure is not wasting any time in getting things started. She really wants to finally get a win against Samson after over two years of trying.
Crumb: But if she isn’t careful it could spell disaster for her. She’s letting her emotions fuel what she does and she’s got to check herself before she wrecks herself.
Rose: Yeah well meh. I’m quite enjoying this ass kicking because it is very much deserved.
The referee checks on Astrid to make sure that she’s okay. Jessie and the fans both seem more than a little annoyed at the delay. Astrid continues to stall near the ropes, talking to the referee. Jessie finally gets fed up and steps toward her. With the referee not paying attention, Astrid reaches over him and manages to get a thumb in Jessie’s eye to briefly blind her. Before Jessie can recover, Astrid steps past the referee and hits her in the chest with a hard chop.
Astrid follows it up with a second and then a third!
Crowd: WOOO! WOOO!
The impact of the strikes sends Jessie stumbling a bit.
DING DING DING!!!
---”Iconic Queen” Astrid Samson vs. ”Hawkeye Warrior” Jessie Roberts---
Astrid grabs Jessie and shoots her across the ring. She steps toward the middle of the ring and tries to send Jessie crashing to the mat with a roundhouse kick. Jessie ducks underneath the attempt and continues running. She bounces off of the ropes again and sends Astrid crashing to the mat with a flying forearm smash! Astrid tries to drag herself back up to her feet, but Jessie grabs and lifts her into the air for a snap suplex! Jessie covers.
Astrid tries to create a bit of space between herself and Jessie. She makes it halfway up to her feet before Jessie tries to drag her toward the center of the ring. Astrid just barely manages to shove Jessie away. Jessie recovers quickly, but gets caught with a European uppercut! Astrid connects with a second one just moments later! Jessie staggers away. Astrid grabs Jessie and pulls her in before sending her to the mat just moments later with a snapmare! Before Jessie can pull herself back up to her feet, Astrid bounces off of the ropes and catches Jessie with a running dropkick to the face! The fans boo loudly as Astrid takes a moment to enjoy her handiwork before covering.
Nelson: If you did not believe that Samson was back in full form, she sure is proving you all wrong with her.
Crumb: These two have a storied history and Astrid has come out on top every time. But this time is different because there are a few variables that could come into play and sway the match in favor of the other competitor.
Rose: You mean like Stasi Herveaux coming out and drilling that blonde bitch in the head again? Oh that is something that I would LOVE to see!
The Iconic Queen glares down at the Hawkeye Warrior for a moment before shaking her head. She brings Jessie back up to her feet and locks in a front facelock. Astrid applies pressure for just a moment before Jessie manages to drive Astrid back against the nearest turnbuckle. Astrid tries to keep the hold applied but has no choice but to release it when Jessie successfully drives her back against it a second time!
Astrid stumbles back toward the center of the ring, Jessie charging out of the corner to strike while she still can. Unfortunately for her, Astrid cuts her off with a jawbreaker! Astrid goes for the cover.
Nelson: A very close call there for Jessie Roberts! It looks to me that maybe she has got a little bit of luck going for her right now.
Crumb: Yeah, but kicking out did nothing but anger the Iconic Queen and you and I and Rose… we all know what can happen when Mrs. Samson is angry.
Rose: Oh she’s nothing but one of those little chihuahua’s that bark and bark but can’t actually do anything. She’s been a castrated dog as of late and there’s no way she’ll ever be the same again.
The fans begin to cheer for Jessie in an effort to get her back into the match. Astrid turns toward them and yells, prompting even more boos from nearly every fan in attendance. She then grabs Jessie and hits her with another European uppercut. Astrid tries to set her up for a neckbreaker, but Jessie spins out of Astrid’s grasp. Astrid turns around to face Jessie only to get blasted in the mouth with a forearm smash. Astrid staggers back a step before stumbling forward and getting kicked in the mouth with Lose Some Teeth (superkick)! Astrid falls to the mat and Jessie goes for the cover.
TH---Astrid kicks out!
Nelson: Astrid Samson needs to focus less on the gloating and fan interaction right now and get back to the task at hand. Because next time, she might not answer that three count.
Crumb: Let’s face it… we all know Astrid has an attitude and we’ve known that for a long time. But Jessie is a damn good competitor to be honest and well… they are evenly matched here.
Rose: Yeah, and Jessie is desperate to finally get a victory over ASStrid.
Jessie calls for the fans to get louder and they oblige. Jessie hits Astrid in the mouth with another forearm shot. Jessie drags her up to her feet. She kicks Astrid in the ribs to get her to double over in pain before trying to lift Astrid into the air in a powerbomb position.
Nelson: Roberts could be looking to end this with her Hawkeye Pride (sitout powerbomb)!
Astrid nails Jessie with a hard elbow shot to the forehead to get her to put her down. Astrid waits for Jessie to compose herself before slapping her in the face! The crowd gasps.
Nelson: It looks like Samson is starting to look desperate.
Rose: When doesn’t she look desperate. She’s so needy that it is annoying as all hell most of the time.
Crumb: You would think that Jessie, after all this time, would be able to know what Astrid is like in the ring. She’s been impressive… but is it enough?
Astrid takes a step back, looking surprisingly focused. Glaring angrily, Jessie charges at Astrid Samson. Astrid tries to send her crashing to the mat with a bicycle super kick! Jessie dodges the attempt and grabs hold of Astrid. She hoists her up and tries to deliver Hawkeye Pride again!
Nelson: Attempt number two… will this one be successful?
Crumb: Hush so we can see.
Astrid manages to fight her way out of the hold. Astrid holds on to Jessie’s head, flips behind her, and connects with her Off With Their Head (Flipping neckbreaker)!
Crumb: WHAT CAN JESSIE ROBERTS BE THINKING AS ASTRID SAMSON CONNECTS WITH OFF WITH THEIR HEAD?!?!
Astrid crawls over and hooks the leg for the cover.
Torres: The winner of this match…Astrid Samson!!!
Nelson: These two both gave it a great effort, but Samson just proved that she is one hell of a wrestler and picked up a very impressive win!
Rose: She got lucky! That’s all there is to it.
Crumb: Well whoever won the match tonight was going to be lucky. These two Lady Icons know each other so well.

The scene switches to the backstage area where female screaming could be heard before coming upon Astrid Sedin and Stasi Herveaux going after one another… and not in a good way. Stasi has a handful of Astrid’s blonde hair in her hand as she pulls the Iconic Queen up to her feet. Stasi’s face was red with rage as Astrid tried to catch her breath. Stasi bends Astrid back, grasping her face harshly so she could look into Astrid’s eyes.
Stasi: Did you really think you could sneak up on me!?
Astrid: I told you… I would find you.
Stasi: Yet you failed… AGAIN! I got you first.
Stasi boots Astrid in the stomach, causing her to double over before turning Astrid around and throwing her into the wall. Astrid starts to pull herself up.
Stasi: Oh why can’t you just stay down?
Using a table to lean on, Astrid gets back up to her feet.
Astrid: ...you’re not sh*t and you won’t ever be sh*t!
Stasi: That’s the pot calling the kettle black. Everyone knows you’re nothing more than a weak bitch who is dependant on her man and cries for attention.
A slight smirk begins to make its way onto the face of the Iconic Queen. This does nothing but anger Stasi further.
Stasi: What’s so funny?
Astrid: The fact that you played right… into… my… trap.
Astrid straights her stance out as her smirk turns into a wide smile, pointing to over Stasi’s shoulder where two women stand. They are of course Fierce and Olivia Rhodes who have their arms folded across their chests, glaring at Stasi who’s look quickly changes to one of worry.
Astrid: Did you think I would come without backup?
Stasi: No… but I…
She tries to back away but backs right up into Daveena. Stasi quickly whips her head around as her eyes grow wide.
Stasi: This is more along the lines of--
Before Stasi is able to finish her sentence, Astrid lunges forward, spins her around by the shoulder, and clocks her with a right punch. The Real Champion stumbles back into Daveena, who pushes her forward. Astrid swings again but Stasi has the wherewithal to dodge the blow causing Astrid to fall forward due to the force of the momentum into Daveena.
Unsure of their next plan of action, Fierce and Olivia hesitate for a second. That second is long enough for the Headhunters to suddenly appear and club Fierce and Olivia in the back of the head sending the two Lady Icons stumbling forward.
Fierce, Olivia, Daveena, and Astrid face off against Eric, Dexter, and Stasi. All seven preparing to majorly throwdown but security and officials flood the backstage area keeping them apart.
Nelson: Tonight has been--
Suddenly the feed goes to static and cuts back to the inside of the Iconic Arena. Patrick Nelson, Todd Crumb, and Rosel appear lost and confused as the screen melts away and we find ourselves looking at dark alley somewhere behind what appears to be the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard. This world feels familiar, but the audience can not put their finger on what is going on or why this is all so familiar.
A few cars fly by at the end of the alley and out of nowhere, Brady Vega ascends from above and Louis Vuitton motorcycle boots slam against the pavement. The camera pans upward giving the subject a superior feel as he stands tall looking down into the camera, haute couture mask covering his face.
Crumb: Hey, that's Brady Vega from California Wrestling! What the hell?!
Rose: Why has he hacked into the IPW feed?!
Brady Vega: Better call the exterminator.... there's a parasite amongst the IPW.
Brady Vega bursts into laughter as the cameras cut back to ringside.
Crumb: WHAT CAN ICONIC PRO WRESTLING BE THINKING AS CALIFORNIA WRESTLING’S BRADY VEGA HAS APPEARED ON ICONIC PRO WRESTLING’S CHAOS?!?!
Rose: Probably, ”First Samanthan Tolson-Anderson. Now Brady Vega?!”
Torres: The following match is for the ICONIC PRO WRESTLING TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP!
The crowd explodes with cheers.
Torres: It is scheduled for ONE FALL with a THIRTY MINUTE time limit!
"Shakedown" by The Score plays as Kono Masaki makes his way to the ring.
Nelson: This is Kono Masaki’s official Iconic Professional Wrestling in ring debut. His brother, Hiro, has kept us entertained in the ring, will we be seeing the same from Kono Masaki?
Crumb: Even though Hiroyuki has won one and lost one, I quite enjoy his work and I’m looking forward to seeing that here again tonight with Kono.
Rose: Oh they’re only half brothers or something like that and no two wrestlers are alike. Still kind of fishy that he’s getting a title match in his debut.
The lights go dark as "Miami Showdown" begins to play over the speakers. Multiple spotlights scatter throughout the arena before, one by one, unifying at the top of the stage. There, Aaron Kostan steps into the halo of light, a hood covering his head. "The Artist" stretches his arms out wide and takes a deep breath as he drinks in the crowd's cheers. For a moment, his lips move in silent prayer as he looks heavenward. Then, at the thirty second mark he finally drops his arms, throws back the hood, and beings to walk to the ring as the spotlight follows him. When he arrives he walks calmly up the steps and, with a final scan of the crowd, ducks between the top and middle ropes to enter the ring.
Nelson: Ever since Aaron Kostan won the Iconic Professional Wrestling Television Championship from Erik Holland a few months ago, he has defeated every single person who has stepped up to challenge him for it.
Crumb: While there is the probability that it could keep going tonight, he’s not faced nor seen Kono Masaki in the ring if I can recall. So that’s got to be a bit of a hindrance for him.
Rose: If Kono manages to win tonight, it will be an upset that’s for sure. But he’s going to have to do something amazing if that’s to be the case.
The referee looks at both Icons to make sure that they are ready for the upcoming match. He then calls for the bell, making the match officially underway.
DING DING DING!!!
---TV Title: Kono Masaki vs. “The Artist” Aaron Kostan---
Almost immediately, Kono Masaki runs across the ring and blasts Aaron in the mouth with a forearm smash. He follows it up with a second before pulling Aaron in and sending the TV Champ staggering with an uppercut! Aaron tries to regain his footing, but Kono stays close to and connects with a series of hard chops that leave Aaron holding on to the ropes just to stay on his feet.
The fans boo as Kono chuckles. He grabs Aaron and shoots him across the ring, running toward the middle of the ring to meet him. Kono practically throws himself at Aaron to sends him crashing to the mat with a huge clothesline. Chuckling, Kono pulls himself back up to his feet. He flexes and the fans begin to boo almost immediately.
Nelson: A hard-hitting start to this match for Kono Masaki!
Rose: Like I said before we came on the air...the guy knows what he's doing! And right now, he needs to focus on winning this match for the title! Everything else can come later...
The Artist tries to drag himself back up to his feet. Kono grabs him by the hair and shouts, “Kono meinu o mite!”
Crumb: Ohhh...that wasn’t nice to say!
Kono then elbows Aaron in the mouth. Aaron stumbles back from the impact. Kono bounces off of the ropes, picks up speed, and charges toward Aaron once again. This time, however, Aaron is ready---leaping in the air and catching Kono with a spinning wheel kick! Both Icons crash hard to the mat. Aaron pulls himself back up to his feet. Kono groggily does the same, though he's unable to stay on his feet long as Aaron kicks him in the side of the head! Kono crashes back to the mat. Before Aaron can try to go for the cover, the Jon Kellar managed Icon wisely rolls over and grabs the nearest ropes.
Nelson: That was a move purely out of instinct. Maski is able to get to the ropes and get himself a bit of a breather.
Crumb: I think he slightly underestimated Aaron. Aaron’s got a lot more to fight for than Kono and the longer this goes on, the more interesting it is going to become.
Rose: Aaron was able to calculate that hit to happen at just the right time. But how much did it take out of him after the onslaught that has been delivered to him thus far?
Kono uses the ropes to pull himself back up. Once Kono is standing, Aaron charges---only to have Kono leap in the air and catch him in the mouth with a leaping knee! Aaron stumbles back from the impact. Kono tries to take advantage of the opening by charging at Aaron. Unfortunately, Aaron catches Kono by surprise with a hurricanrana into a pin attempt!.
Crumb: Wow that was close!
Rose: These fans need to learn and respect true talent! The fact that they're cheering for Aaron the way that they are right now is a disgrace!
Albeit somewhat groggily, Kono slowly tries to pull himself back up. The TV Champ looks back and then steps out onto the apron, grabbing the ropes and waiting patiently for Kono to fully pull himself back up. Aaron claps to try and get the fans involved in the match. They oblige without hesitating. Once Kono is standing, Aaron tries to springboard into the rings in an effort to attempt a crossbody---only to have Kono leap into the air and deliver a perfect dropkick to Aaron's ribs! Aaron crashes to the mat hard and clutches at his midsection in pain! Aaron desperately tries to drag himself back up, but Kono cuts him off with a vicious sidekick to the mouth! Aaron falls as Kono smiles before hooking the leg.
Nelson: Masaki does not seem very happy that he was unable to pick up the win there!
Rose: Yeah, but he's already showing why he's the better of the two wrestlers in this match! That counts for something...
Kono turns and glares angrily at the referee, pleading his case that it had to be a three count. The referee insists that it wasn't. Kono yells something that sounds like an outright shriek before turning and grabbing Aaron. Kono pulls Aaron back up and hits him in the mouth with an elbow shot. He follows it up with a second before throwing Aaron down to the mat. Aaron tries to pull himself back up, Kono lining himself up with the champion. Kono then charges forward and tries to connect with a ripcord clothesline!
Crumb: Kono looking for the set up to his Setting Red SunSault (corkscrew moonsault)!
Aaron ducks out of the way just before Kono can connect! Kono stumbles a few steps. Aaron uses the opening to deliver a picture-perfect discus elbow! Aaron grabs the disoriented Kono and drops him with [color=BlueFinale[/div][/div][/color] (Argentina DDT)!
Nelson: This is it, folks! There is no coming back from that!
Crumb: Both Icons have fought hard and there’s nothing neither should be ashamed about.
Rose: Can we stop comparing Kono to his brother now?
Torres: The winner of this match AND STILL the IPW Television Champion...Aaron Kostan!!!
Nelson: Another hard fought victory for the honorable Television Champion!
Crumb: Yeah, but Kono Masaki was really impressive on his debut.
Rose: And brutal! I like it!
Aaron Kostan raises the T.V. title into the air gingerly, his free arm clutching at his ribs. The buzz in the crowd grows to a cheer as the camera catches up to Oliver Black just as he jumps the guard rail, black folding chair in hand. Briefly making eye contact with the camera mumbling almost inaudible.
Oliver Black: Let it begin...
Nelson: Black has to be referring to his words earlier. He begins here and NOW!
Oliver slides into the ring behind Aaron Kostan. Kostan lowers his arm turning around just in time to see the crazed look of Oliver Black before being laid out by Black with a chair shot to the skull. Kostan falls backwards stiff like a downed tree!
Crumb: WHAT CAN EVERYONE BE THINKING AS OLIVER BLACK JUST ATTACKED THE TELEVISION CHAMPION AARON KOSTON?!
Rose: Probably, “This cry baby probably wants attention or something!” To get respect you have to give it, Ollie.
Oliver lifts the chair into the air and takes a moment to look back as Kono pulls himself back up to his feet in the corner. Kono checks his mouth for blood and watches as Oliver brings the chair down hard on the shoulder of Aaron, once, twice, THREE times. Oliver drops the chair on the mat and looks around the arena soaking in the crowds boos.
Nelson: This is what Black talked about earlier in the evening. He plans to ruin Iconic Professional Wrestling and take away any honor it has left!
Rose: What a better way to start than going after something that has meant so much to IPW in the Television Championship.
Nelson: A workhorse championship.
Kono has made it back up to his feet, slightly limping he walks up to the fallen Kostan and glances down at the fallen champion before glancing back up at Oliver Black the two making eye contact.
Crumb: I don't like that look!
The two look back down at Kostan, and Black smiles at Kono. Kono smiles back.
Rose: Is this an unlikely alliance forming here against the Television Champion?!
Crumb: But Oliver Black eliminated Kono’s brother from the Lord of Chaos tournament!!!
Nelson: Maybe, but I think Masaki and Black have more in common.
Kono reaches down and picks up the chair, standing over Kostan. The booing gets louder as Kono looks down at his erstwhile opponent.
Nelson: Oh come on! Do not do this!
Suddenly “Karate” by BABYMETAL hits the PA system, prompting a cheer from the crowd as Hiro Masaki emerges from the back, microphone in hand.
Crumb: HIRO IS HERE! HIRO IS HERE!
Rose: But whose side is he on?!
The music dies down as Hiro heads down the ramp, gesturing frantically to his brother.
Hiro: Kono… don’t do this. I know deep down you are true competitor. This is not competition, this is violence. Kostan defeated you in combat, and surely by your performance tonight you have earned your place here in IPW. You have held your own against a more experienced competitor, and you have won the respect of these people.
The crowd cheer in agreement. Hiro gestures towards Black.
Hiro: This man is not your friend, he is not a true competitor. He only seeks to hurt, and destroy. That is not you Kono. In spite of everything that has happened, you are not like him. Please… you will have another chance to become Television Champion.
Kono looks down again at Kostan, across at Black who is urging him to deliver a blow of his own, then back at Hiro.
Hiro: Brother. Please. Do not do this!
Kono lowers the chair down to his side, prompting a cheer from the crowd. Black immediately approaches and pushes him in the chest, shouting in Kono’s face. His exact words are not picked up, but you can clearly see the word “weak” among them.
Nelson: I do not think Black is happy with Masaki’s decision!
Black approaches the younger Son of Gold. He points at the chair, still in Kono’s hand, and then down at Kostan. The message is clear: This is your last chance. What’s it going to be? Hiro, meanwhile, has reached the ring and made his way up the steps – stepping through the ropes.
Crumb: What will Kono choose?
Suddenly Kono lifts the chair over his head, looking to bring it down. Quick as a flash Hiro leaps across the ring and grabs the chair from his hand, throwing it into the corner. The crowd erupts in a mixture of boos and cheers, confused by the sight of what appears to be the Sons of Gold imploding once again.
Crumb: Hiro stopped Kono!!
Rose: Coward, his brother was about to clear his way to the top of the mountain.
Crumb: Well… how do you know Kono was going to hit Kostan?
No answer comes as Hiro grabs Kono and throws him away from the fallen Kostan, backing him into the corner.
Hiro: No! I won’t let you do this!
Kono shoves Hiro hard in the chest, pushing him back towards the center. Hiro throws out his arms in question, other words are said that are not picked up from the camera.
Nelson: Tension in the Sons of Gold here tonight!
Hiro and Kono are face to face, almost touching their noses, as they scream at each other in Japanese. Kono pushes Hiro again, and this time Hiro simply backs away.
Rose: See… I told you… coward!
Hiro turns away and takes a stiff super kick to the face almost immediately, sending him down to the mat. He hits the mat hard, clutching his face as Oliver Black, the kicker, stands tall over both of them. He walks over to the corner and grabs the discarded chair, then heads back to the center of the ring.
Nelson: Oh come on… enough is enough!!!
This time, Black stands over Hiro, chair in hand. He looks over at Kono, as if challenging him to stop him. Kono doesn’t move, he just looks down at his brother. He stays still in the corner… not moving at all.
Nelson: That is your brother, Masaki! Help him!
Rose: That’s your weakness dammit, leave him!!!
Black smiles and raises the chair above his head. Still Kono doesn’t move.
“I WANT IT ALL!!! AND I WANT IT NOW!!!”
The crowd erupts as “I Want it All” by Queen fills the arena and a livid Jon Kellar sprints out from the back, his eyes fixed on Oliver Black.
Nelson: Oh thank god, Jon Kellar is here!
Crumb: Bet you never thought you’d say that?!
Nelson: It did feel quite weird escaping my mouth.
Kellar is at the ring and under the bottom rope in a flash. Black, either satisfied with his word or not minded to take his chances against Kellar, is under the bottom rope almost as quickly. With a smug smile on his face he heads back up the ramp, not looking back.
Crumb: Not going to call Oliver a coward for fleeing Jon Kellar then?
Rose: Black doesn’t need to prove himself against that old man… he’s done what he needed to do. But for the record, Oliver comes from weak genes so I’ll ever like him.
It’s hard to argue with Rose, as the referee tends to Kostan and Kellar tends to his protégé. Kellar stands up and gets right in Kono’s face, screaming at him.
Kellar: What the hell was that???!!!
In response, Kono stares blankly down at his brother, and then at Kellar. Without a word, he exits the ring leaving Kellar to tend Hiro.
Crumb: Did the Sons of Gold just implode?
Rose: Of course they did, Kono was going to splatter the Artist all over the canvas before his brother stopped him.
Crumb: How do you know he was going to hit Kostan?
Nelson: It is true… maybe he was going to hit Black?
Rose: You’re deluded…
Crumb: No, Nelson’s right.
Rose: Then why didn’t Kono try to protect his brother?
Nelson: We will be right back after these advertisements.

Torres: The following is the Chaos main event!
The crowd cheers.
Torres: This SIX ICON TAG TEAM match is scheduled for ONE FALL with a THIRTY MINUTE time limit!
Slayer's “God Hates Us All” starts playing and the two Southern brothers, Eric and Dexter Calloway, walk out nodding their heads along. They make their way down to the ring, looking just as ready to party as they are to fight, which to them is almost the same thing anyway. They step into the ring, hooping and hollering, ready to go against whoever they have tonight.
”The Downfall of Us All” by A Day to Remember begins to blast throughout the PA system as the fans quickly jump up to their feet, awaiting the arrival of the raven haired lady, Stasi Herveaux. The heavy guitar rift echoes and as it transitions into lyrics, Stasi emerges from the backstage area by stepping through the black curtain. She is holding her hands behind her back as she slowly and powerfully walks to the top of the ramp with a smirk upon her face. Once she's reached the ramp, she stops and holds her arms out to her side at shoulder height as she soaks in all of the energy coming from the fans. Holding her right hand up to her ear, she continues to listen as a wide smile makes it way across her lips. She stands there for a few moments before extending her arms back out and walking down the ramp. At the halfway point, she starts skipping sideways, swinging and crossing her arms in front of her a few times, until she reaches the bottom where she stops and puts her hands back before her back as she smiles again. She walks off to the right, hips swinging from side to side before she hops onto the ring apron. Standing up right away, Stasi puts her back to the ropes and smiles before removing her studded black leather ring jacket. She twirls it around her head once before quickly thrusting it down to the ground and stepping through the ropes and into the ring. Stasi then heads over to the closest turnbuckle and climbs onto the second one, extending her arms out once again as she turns from her right to her left, continuing to absorb the energy coming from the crowd. After a bit, she hops down and stands off to the side as her entrance music fades out.
Nelson: Stasi Herveaux looks confident as she walks down to the ring, joining The Headhunters for their match tonight. But one can only wonder what state she is in mentally given the backstage brawl that she and Astrid had earlier tonight?
Crumb: As much as she’s trying to put it behind her, Stasi has to be a little bit shaken.
Rose: But she is hiding behind that Real Championship belt. As for The Headhunters… who are they exactly other than some foul mouthed hicks?
“Girls, Girls, Girls” by Mötley Crew plays as Cheriè is the first to come out, she poses as the music picks up tempo. She then starts dancing down the ramp. Victoire follows after, her lips a straight, unemotional line. Cheriè climbs the ring steps and the raises her leg up on the middle rope before leaning back and posing. She she rises she blows a kiss to the audience before slipping through the ropes. Victoire jumps up onto the apron easily, entering the ring with no emotion.
Intro Riff of "ex's & oh's" cues as Purple strobe lights illuminate figure at the top of the ramp.Once the music picks up, Bliss tips her head back as the lights colour her face. She smiles wickedly before strutting down the ramp to a chorus of cheers. Once at the ring she She hops up on the apron, making a show of shaking her ass. She climbs in the ring, straddling the second rope seductively. Once in the ring she climbs the turnbuckle and holds her hands up in predetermined victory
Nelson: The team of Bliss, Cherie and Victoire are surely going to into this match the favorites given the fact that they hold most of the gold in Iconic Professional Wrestling and have proven that they are forces to be reckoned with.
Crumb: I’m not too sure that’s pretty accurate. Did you see Bliss’ promo? She seems to be taking things a little too personally with Stasi’s past comments. That could lead to a disastrous outcome.
Rose: Hmm… doesn’t that sound familiar?
Dexter steps into the ring to start things off, practically daring someone to do the same against him. Victoire does the same for her team. Dexter smirks as the referee calls for the bell making the match officially underway.
DING DING DING!!!
---The Headhunters (Eric and Dexter Calloway) and Stasi Herveaux vs. Savoir Faire (Cheriè and Victoire) and “2019 Lady of Chaos” Bliss---
Victoire tries to approach Dexter in the center of the ring, taking a cautious approach. Unfortunately for her, Dexter charges out of his corner of the ring and blasts Victoire with a forearm smash! Victoire is barely able to keep herself upright. She staggers toward Dexter, who lifts her into the air and sends Victoire crashing to the mat with a flapjack! Victoire tries to pull herself back up to her feet, only to have Dexter charge over. He catches Victoire with a knee strike that sends her stumbling back to his corner of the ring. Dexter tags his older brother, Eric, into the match. Eric makes his way over toward the middle of the ring as Dexter sends Victoire over his direction---Eric responding by sending her crashing to the mat with a stiff clothesline!
Nelson: This is exactly what you have to expect when you get in the ring with the Headhunters!
Crumb: They're a scary, dangerous team!
Rose: There's no denying that!
Eric grabs Victoire and drags her back up to her feet. He locks her into a front facelock and tries to wear her down, delivering a few clubbing blows to her back in the process. Eric drags Victoire over to a nearby turnbuckle and straightens her up. He hits Victoire in the chest with a hard chop before stepping back to the middle of the ring.
Eric pauses for a moment before charging forward and trying to hit Victoire with a splash in the corner! Victoire ducks out of the way at the last possible second! Eric crashes hard into the turnbuckle. Victoire uses the opening to hit Eric with an enziguri! He tries to pull himself back up to his feet, only to get caught with a spike hurricanrana! She covers.
Eric tries to pull himself back up to his feet, only to have Victoire hurry back to her corner of the ring. She tags Cherie into the match. Cherie waits on the apron as Eric charges at Victoire---only to get hit with a knee to the face! Cherie then springboards into the ring and catches Eric with a crossbody block.
Nelson: The Tag Team Champions are showing what they are made of now!
Crumb: Yeah...they are...
Eric tries to pull himself back up to his feet as Cherie hits him with a hard kick to the ribs. She follows it up with a second before hitting Eric in the mouth with a spinning backfist!

Nelson: And here comes Stasi Herveaux into the match and she does not look too happy whatsoever.

Crumb: It didn’t take long for Stasi to become the dominant one in the match, sending Cherie to the ground with a hard clothesline before that pin attempt.

Crumb: This is horrible!
Rose: But look at what's happening in the ring!
