”Supreme Gauntlet 17 - Night 1: Mean, Lean & Supreme!”
LIVE from The United Center, Chicago, Illinois!
We open on the office of Lila Sleater, the general manager of the WFWF sitting behind her desk, staring straight down the camera with a thin smile.
Lila Sleater: Ladies and gentlemen I’d like to welcome you all to the first WFWF show of 2017. Tonight we not only kick off the Supreme Gauntlet in style but we do the same for the WFWF itself. 2017 promises to be an incredible year for this promotion and I promise you the Supreme Gauntlet is just one of a number of big events that our new owner and myself are proud to bring to you all. Which brings me to why I am addressing you today. As you’re all aware Trace Demon has sold the WFWF.
Lila doesn’t even pretend to hide her joy at that statement.
Lila Sleater: Now many of you will be wondering what that means for the WFWF. The answer is nothing. The WFWF will not change, it will only improve, it will only get bigger and better. The new owner has assured me that they have great faith in my abilities and I will continue to run the WFWF proudly as it’s general manager. Our new owner has also decided not to make their presence known just yet but let me promise you we are done with the time that authority figures manipulated the WFWF for their own deeds. Tonight is the beginning of a new era for the WFWF. So buckle in…
Lila Sleater: Because business is about to pick up.
We now hit the arena with the usual pyro etc and the fans going wild for the first show of the inaugural WFWF Supreme Gauntlet 17!
Daniel Knight: Opening proceedings for Block B we have a pair who haven’t met in the ring for some time, if ever?
Alecia Matthews: You might be right there Daniel. Dex and Josh Dean are both capable of doing great things in the tournament but tonight only one of them can start the way they mean to go on.
Daniel Knight: That was some hella generic commentary Alecia.
Dex and Dean chain wrestle from the bell and it’s Josh who eventually decides to switch things up with a series of hard kicks to the chest of Dex, driving the wind out of his lungs. From here he snapmares the prone Dex and hits a stiff kick to the spine. Josh continues to put the punishment on Dex as the minutes roll by, working over his back for the most part with more kicks and an array of mat based submissions, showing off his BJJ training. Eventually Josh deadlifts Dex from the mat with a gut wrench and flips him over into the Payout (Gutwrench flipped into a Codebreaker). He covers and although Dex does kick out it’s after the ref’s third count.
Christa Adina: Here is your winner, Joshua Deaaaaan.
Alecia Matthews: That came out of nowhere! I don’t think Dex expected to lose right then.
Daniel Knight: I think that Payout rang his bell and he wasn’t sure where he was. I mean, he did kick out, but all it takes is a loss of equilibrium and you mistime your movements.
Alecia Matthews: Too bad, but Josh gets himself on the score board.
Alecia Matthews: And now for the first match in Group A between two very different competitors. The experienced Joe Bishop takes on the debuting Anna Ahriman.
Daniel Knight: I’m not sure how Anna even got a spot in this tournament, but Bishop is going to make sure that debut is trial by fire.
Joe Bishop offers a handshake to Anna to start off, who hesitantly accepts. That sets this match up to be one of honour and respect but neither Bishop nor Anna follow that route when the bell rings, both of them desperate to put points on the board for their own reasons. Bishop is clearly the stronger of the two and he uses that height and weight difference to his advantage, overpowering the Ahriman heir. Anna plays it smart though, building distance between them and diving in with swift attacks, countering Joe’s offence and landing her own before getting out of dodge. This works for a while and it looks like Anna might actually get an impressive win. That is until Joe impressively counters the pixie cut and pulls Anna in for a head rolling lariat. Bishop takes control, beating on the youngster, nailing a big German suplex for the two count. Anna dodges a flying forearm and connects with the Goddess Kick out of nowhere… but only for two! She attempts to lock in the Hail The Queen but Bishop manages to slip out. Both scramble to their feet and Anna leaps up for the Triple-A… but Bishop holds the nearby rope with one hand and Anna falls to the mat back first. Bishop dives in with the Mactabilis Factum and despite Anna’s best efforts she’s trapped and forced to tap out!
Christa Adina: And here is your winner… Joe Bishop!
Alecia Matthews: Anna Ahriman proved that she can stand with the best the WFWF has to offer here tonight but it wasn’t quite enough to get the job done.
Daniel Knight: Bishop’s on another level right now, honestly we could be looking at the new WFWF World Champion right here.
As Joe Bishop celebrates inside the ring we move backstage to show the King of Demons himself, Trace Demon, watching the event on a monitor. He’s smiling as he sees Bishop come out victorious.
Trace Demon: See you soon kid.
Trace walks off, readying himself for the main event.
Christa Adina: The following match is an open invitational battle royal! The winner will receive the final spot in the 2017 Supreme Gauntlet! The first entrant, already in the ring, please welcome… Hugh Jass?
The small, excitable Hugh Jass throws his hands in the air, the crowd giving him a cheer based on the name alone. This just gets Jass even more wound up and he begins running around the ring, the cheers slowly turning into laughter.
Alecia Matthews: I mean… his name’s Hugh Jass?
Daniel Knight: He knows how that sounds, right? Either way he didn’t even get an entrance, he’s clearly nothing more than a joke.
Christa Adina: Introducing next…
A stagehand calls over to Christa, whispering something to her. She seems confused, steps outside the ring to go over what she’s just been told. The referee walks over to the ropes to consult.
Christa Adina: Um, ladies and gentlemen, there appears to be no more entrants in this battle royal.
Alecia Matthews: Wait, what? Why would you be stupid enough to turn down an opportunity like this?
Daniel Knight: Does that mean… no…
Christa Adina: That means your winner…
Hugh Jass, confused over what is happening, charges at the referee who still has his back turned by the ropes. He grabs the official and throws him over the top rope to the floor as Christa Adina’s feet. Christa looks up at Jass, horrified.
Christa Adina: …and entering the Supreme Gauntlet… Hugh Jass.
The crowd are confused at first, then erupt into cheers as “shake your rump” erupts over the speakers and Hugh Jass launches into the most over the top celebration imaginable. He exits the ring and hugs a horrified Adina, who wants to be as far away from the guy as possible. He runs over to the announce table and does the same to Knight who pushes him off. Jass runs around to Alecia…
Alecia Matthews: Touch me and I’ll rip your balls off.
Hugh shrugs and begins running around the ring, arms in the air, the crowd beginning to chant…
Crowd: You deserve it! You deserve it! You deserve it!
Alecia Matthews: These people have lost their collective minds.
Daniel Knight: Looks like Supreme Gauntlet has just gained itself a…
Alecia Matthews: Don’t say it.
Daniel Knight: Hugh Jass.
As Alecia’s head hits the announce table Jass slides in the ring and leaps up onto the middle turnbuckle, arms still in the air, the crowd still telling him he deserves it. One thing’s for certain, everyone better get used to having a Hugh Jass, because he’s not going anywhere.
Alecia Matthews: Wait. What?
"No Love" by Eminem ft. Lil Wayne hits over the P/A system. Through the curtain strolls Phillip Schneider. He's not in ring gear, but it could be argued as ring gear for him. Black shorts and a Bride of Chucky t-shirt. But he's got a microphone in hand. As the music cuts off, he addresses the only man in the ring.
Phillip Schneider: Good lord, I can smell the piss in your pants from here boy. You should see your doctor and possibly monitor your salt intake, pissy pants. See, I don't know your name so I'm just going to call you pissy pants. I had this idea of coming in here and laying waste to everyone in the ring, but looking down the ramp, I genuinely don't see any reason to come down there and possibly soil my fresh sneakers by stomping a face. But this is as good of time as any. Camera man, get close.
The camera man reluctantly approaches Schneider as he dips into his back pocket, producing a small stack of stapled papers.
Phillip Schneider: You see, what I have in my hand is a brand new negotiated WFWF contract. Makes me eligible to walk down to the ring and end any cannon fodder jobbers that are in there, or anyone else. Makes me eligible to smash anyone I choose to within a WFWF ring once more. You're probably sitting there saying "but Schneider, you lost a retirement match!". And that passed over the desk of Trace Demon and was notarized by his offices. Trace is out. And thus, Schneider is in. Now I wasn't just going to come walking back in and smash cans like nothing happened. My contract DID expire one way or another at End Game. I was planning on capturing the World Heavyweight Championship, then using it as a pawn to get more money, but it is what it is. But now, as the corporate structure of the WFWF is in a complete vortex, I stand in the eye of the storm and I'm collecting all the riches I ever wanted. So faceless and nameless boy in the ring, and all of you still out the back, you're on notice. People in this pointless championship series? You've been let off early, I could easily dump each and every one of these bungholes over the top rope and claim the wild card slot rightfully, but am choosing not to. Ante? I see you buddy..
"No Love" hits once more and Schneider drops the microphone, taking off through the curtain as the battle royal commences.
Daniel Knight: Is this legal? Can he do this?
Alecia Matthews: Forget legalities, is he just going to ignore the fact this makes him a prostitute of his word?
Daniel Knight: Jesus Alecia, don't say things like that. Not unless you want to join Penny Shannon's swashbuckling crew of eye patch fanatics.
Daniel Knight: Well I’ve got to say I’m excited at the prospect of this next one. We’re only into the first set of matches from each group and I think teeth are gonna fly.
Alecia Matthews: You might not be far wrong Daniel. This is two brutes from Boston, here to butt heads until one of them gives.
As you’d expect both men start of the match with a very strong style, exchanging strikes, constantly trying to one up the other man with forearms, lariats and eventually running boots. Brennan gains control off the kick and begins a fairly smash mouth beat down on Lynn until Lynn catches a break and rolls out of the ring. Brennan simply waits inside for Frank, who shakes out the cobwebs and takes a 17 count before climbing on to the apron. Brennan moves into range and Lynn spring boards with the spaz attack. This gives Lynn a chance to take control and he returns the favour of the previous beating for a few minutes. Eventually Brennan pushes Lynn away and the two exchange even more strikes centre ring until Lynn stumbles back, hits the ropes and hits the slingblade. Both men stay down for a count of 7. Lynn is the first up and he runs and hits a second slingblade before mounting the top turnbuckle. He jumps looking for the 5 Star Frog Splash but Brennan gets the knees up, rises to his feet and drops Lynn with the Charles River Plunge. He sits out and holds the pin for the victory!
Christa Adina: Here is your winner, David Brennaaaaaan.
Alecia Matthews: Well Lynn put up a hell of a fight but the International Champion continues on this hot undefeated streak.
Alecia Matthews: Well it’s main event time. Trace Demon and Austin Hayes battle it out in their first Supreme Gauntlet match, and to say this is a mismatch might be an understatement.
Daniel Knight: Trace has ten years of experience on Hayes, the young rookie is going to have to do something special if he wants to pull off the upset here.
Just like last week Trace Demon wastes no time as he viciously launches himself at Hayes and connects with the leaping knee. Hayes is knocked for a loop and Demon relentlessly attacks, focusing in on the knee of Hayes just like he did to Frank Lynn. Hayes shows a lot of spirit to fight back at every opportunity but those opportunities are slim, Demon methodical and swift in his offence, stopping Hayes at every turn. The young rookie manages to send Trace out of the ring with a hurricanrana giving him a brief respite, the Shooting Star living up to that nickname as he springboards off of the top ropes down onto Demon. The knee stops him from immediately getting Trace back into the ring though and he can’t capitalise. Trace fights back only to be stopped by a FALCON PAAAAAANCH!!! Trace goes down and Hayes goes up but the knee means the climb is slow and he wastes too much time. Trace is up, the King of Demons showing off his own athleticism by leaping up to the top turnbuckle and yanking Hayes down with a belly to belly suplex. Trace dives in and swiftly locks on the Demon’s Brand: Ultimate Edition! For the second time in as many shows the new submission hold proves too much and Hayes is forced to tap out, giving Trace Demon the win and putting his first points on the board.
Christa Adina: And here is your winner… Trace Demon!
Alecia Matthews: Austin Hayes fought valiantly tonight but he just could not upset Demon, who has to be considered one of the favourites in this tournament.
Daniel Knight: Maybe, but there’s still four shows to go, both of these men have three more matches, it’s anybodies game.
Alecia Matthews: Well that's all she wrote folks, keep your eyes on WFWF.COM for the updated league table numbers later tonight. We'll see you in St. Louis!
