Location: debonair music hall, teaneck nj
Show opens with a countdown graphic with the battlarts-usa logo from 10 seconds, slowly counting down to 0. Graphic fades and lights come on in the music hall with the ring announcer standing in the center of the ring, with the ring pushed up against the stage. The Hard camera is focused on him from the balcony. Crowd is going nuts as the camera switches over to our commentators to introduce the show.
SG: Welcome wrestling fans to the debut of BattlARTS-USA live here on hitbox.tv, the official BattlARTS-USA youtube channel, and battlarts-usa.com! Im Scotty Gambit and this handsome devil right beside me is “Mr. Riot” Jimmy Baxter!

”Make Yourself” by Incubus plays from the speakers, MV Young steps out onto the stage and take a look at the crowd as they all begin to boo him. He shakes his head at the crowd as he slowly steps in between the ropes, walks to the red corner and removes his denim vest. Just then the music changes to “Run Through the Jungle” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Out comes Mance Warner and the crowd explodes. Mance hops off the side of the stage and makes his rounds high fiving fans, even offering fans to shine his boots before he steps in the ring. Once in the ring, he takes his place in the blue corner across from Young and removes his signature windbreaker.
SS: Ladies and gentlemen, here are the rules for the tournament.

Opening Contest: 1st Round Title Tournament – MV Young vs Mance Warner
JB: Here we go ladies and gentlemen the first ever match up in BattlARTS-USA history, MV Young vs Mance Warner. Two Young up-and-comers who have a lot to prove here and want to make a name for themselves here in BattlARTS-USA.
SG: MV Young is a former Vicious Outcast Wrestling Hypersonic Champion, Warner being the current IWA-Mid South heavyweight champion, what better match up to start the show with other than this?
While our commentators give the credentials of our competitors as the two square up to one another looking for an opening. The crowd is silent as Young swings an open right hand at Warner who blocks it and begins to back up into the ropes. Young Tries to keep landing in strikes as Warner wisely covers himself up while giving himself a rope break. The two separate and Warner shoots for a takedown and it’s successful. Warner perches himself up on Young’s chest and tries to lock in an arm bar. Young does what he can to fight it off, the two-start scrapping on the mat trying to get a submission on one another. Young locks in an anaconda vice.
JB: Anaconda vice locked in by MV Young, he’s got it locked in pretty tight and Warner is no where near any ropes this time.
Warner delivers some nasty palm strikes to the face of Young with his free hand. Young breaks the hold and Warner locks on some head scissors. Young positions himself just right, flips himself on top of Warner and he gets a one count as Warner wraps his arms around Young’s waist and rises to his feet. They turn around, Warner goes for a pile driver but it’s blocked by Young, who breaks the hold and gets behind Warner and delivers a nasty German Suplex. Warner immediately gets up and delivers a sickening knee strike to the face of a kneeling Young. He goes for the cover and Young kicks out.
SG: MV Young just kicked out of Ol’ Mancer’s signature running knee!
JB: One of these men needs to capitalize on the situation within the next 2 minutes or the round ends!
Warner lifts Young off the mat and lands some elbows while backing him against the ropes. Warner goes to whip him off but it’s countered; Young delivers a big bicycle kick which forces Warner to one knee, Young follows it up with a super kick. Warner slumps over, Young picks him up and lands a t-bone suplex. Young goes for the cover and Warner kicks out.
JB: Young had Warner well scouted but it wasn’t enough! We’re down to the final minute of the first round here!
SG: You can feel the tension and the stress of the clock as it slowly ticks away. Somebody has got to come up with a game-plan fast if they want to score the first fall of the matchup.
Young quickly picks Warner up to his feet and sets him up for an exploder suplex. Warner gives him some elbows to the side of the head to fight him off. Warner hits the ropes and gives him a big boot. Young hits the ropes behind him and gives him a flying knee. Warner goes to hit the ropes again, rebounds himself between the top and middle ropes and delivers a sickening flying knee that knocks Young off his feet. 30 seconds are left in the round, the ref starts counting a double down. Warner slowly rises to his feet, using the ropes for assistance, Young does not answer the 10 count and the round goes to Warner.
SG: Mr. Riot what an incredible first round that was, neither man willing to give an inch in it. Notice how Ol’ Mancer didn’t do the usual taunt of the signature knee he delivers. No “Knee pad up, knee pad down” necessary.
JB: Not only is it not necessary Scotty but both these men know that the clock is against them. There is zero time for taunting here, you’re going to waste valuable time doing taunts.
SG: I think both our competitors are ready for the second round Jim, let’s get to it.
Referee Tom Dub asks if both competitors are ready. He sounds the bell and the two barrel out of the red and blue corners trading chops and elbows. Young gets the upper-hand with a European uppercut and whips Warner off the ropes. Warner reverses it and delivers a nasty headbutt. He hits the ropes looking for a running knee, Young steps out of the way and gives Warner a tiger suplex with a bridge. He gets the two count, rolls with Warner’s arms still hooked looking to deliver another; but Warner backs him up into the red corner breaking the hold. Warner hits the blue corner, charges at Young who side steps the attempted splash, and Young sets him up for a German suplex. Young than delivers a German suplex into the boxing turnbuckle that makes it seem like Warner died on impact.
JB: Holy crap. Scotty I am speechless.
SG: That German suplex just might have ended the life of Mance Warner.
JB: I might have to put in a call to the coroner.
The ref checks on the condition of Warner as Young turns his attention to the crowd. Warner slowly gets to his feet, Young notices this and delivers some stiff forearms across his back. Young sets him for a backdrop suplex, once lifted Warner switches the script and locks in a dragon sleeper with body scissors. Young does what he can to fight it, crawling to the ropes, trying to rake the eyes, nothing works. Young slowly slips to unconsciousness, and the ref raises Young’s arm three times, each time it drops giving Warner the victory.
WINNER AND ADVANCING TO THE 2ND ROUND OF THE TOURNAMENT: MANCE WARNER
SG: What an amazing matchup to debut BattlARTS-USA with! Mance Warner advances in the tournament after a well scouted dragon sleeper with body scissors!
JB: Warner saw the perfect opening as he was lifted in the air for that backdrop suplex and caught Young by surprise. Let’s head down to the locker room where Warner has a few words for us.
Camera transitions to a black painted brick wall where an exhausted Mance Warner is about to speak
MW: You know something man? People underestimate Ol’ Mancer. People say Ol’ Mancer is just a deathmatch guy. Ol’ Mancer is a one trick pony, he’s just a guy doing a stone-cold impression, well here’s the thing dadday. Ol’ Mancer is clearly more than a deathmatch wrestler, this pony’s got a million tricks, and this voice is all natural babay, and Ol’ Mancer just shut y’all the up! If ya thought what ya saw out there was impressive, wait till I get my hands-on Matt Riddle or Domic Garini, and then I beat some jabroni’s ass in the finals and become the first champion of BattlARTS-USA dadday!
We cut to Kennedi Copeland who is about to say some words for her opponent Shayna Baszler
KC: I get it. I’m clearly the underdog in this match. I’m small, I’m petite, and I’m still new to this business. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t go out there and give it my all, especially against someone like Shayna Baszler. I’m here to prove myself, I’m here to show everyone that I can hang, I’m here to claim my throne as the queen of BattlARTS-USA.
Camera switch back to the ring where “God of Thunder” By KISS booms over the speakers and out comes Shayna Baszler.
JB: Scotty let’s look over the tale of the tape real quick before we get this next contest underway. Both Baszler and Copeland have experience in martial arts. Both Copeland and Baszler are experienced in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but Baszler has a bit of an advantage because she is also a practitioner of Muay Thai.
SG: That’s right Jim. Baszler has a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is a teacher of Muay Thai. A “Khun Kru” if you really want to get technical. Kennedi Copeland is really going to have to bring her A game if she wants to score a victory over Baszler.
The music cuts to “Absolutely” by Four Year Strong and Kennedi Copeland pops out onto the stage to a large applause from the crowd. She runs around ringside giving high fives to fans before hopping into the ring and taking her place in the red corner across from Baszler.

Copeland loosens up, allowing Baszler to quickly apply a heel hook on Copeland, who scrambles to the ropes causing a rope break.
JB: If there is anything in this life you don’t want, it’s on the receiving end of a heel hook. That hold was banned in Pancrase due to the huge amount of injuries it caused.
The two rise to their feet and begin squaring off again. The two trade some leg kicks, Baszler brings Copeland close with a Thai clinch and delivers some nasty knee strikes. They backup towards the ropes, Baszler whips Copeland off, on the rebound Copeland gives Baszler a tilt-a-whirl head scissors causing her to roll out of the ring.

JB: Here we go ladies and gentlemen! First female barfight in BattlARTS-USA history!

Copeland fires back with one of her own. The two begin trading fists and elbows until Copeland stands up and delivers kicks to the chest. She goes for a head kick, Baszler ducks, and drops Copeland on the floor with a backdrop suplex.

JB: Kennedi Copeland has so much fight left in her, it’s insane! Where is she getting this all from!?
The two slowly rise to their feet and begin trading elbows. Copeland goes for a rolling elbow, Baszler ducks and delivers a rolling double gut wrench suplex. After the suplex she locks in a guillotine choke. Copeland fights it off for a few second before slipping out of consciousness. Referee begins raising the arm and Copeland’s arm drops twice, on the 3rd drop Copeland manages to find her fighting spirit as she rises to her feet with the guillotine still locked in. Copeland gives Baszler a northern lights suplex but it’s a two count. Baszler quickly trips up Copeland, locks her legs up like an STF, lays on top of Copeland back-to-back, grabs a hold of her head and pulls back. Copeland taps out.
WINNER: SHAYNA BASZLER
SG: What an insane submission victory by Shayna Baszler!
JB: And what a way to finish off a fantastic match! She did her homework for this match, she pulled out a submission that Sambo wrestler Volk Han used to do.
Shayna asks for a microphone as Copeland slowly rises to her feet. Using the ropes for assistance
SB: Hey kid. You got a lot of heart and you took an incredible ass whooping. You said you wanted to be the queen of this promotion, right? You want people to think of you when someone says “BattlARTS-USA?” Well you know what? I think you earned it.
Baszler extends her hand for a handshake and Copeland is in disbelief. Copeland accepts the handshake.
JB: That right there ladies and gentleman is true sportsmanship.
We cut to a video package of some of the highlights of Masada’s career as he speaks over them.
M: Barbedwire, thumbtacks, light-tubes, gusset plates, panes a glass. Man, all that don’t mean crap. People ing see that crap and automatically assume that I can’t work and man are they ing wrong. Been wrestling since 2002, got a ing 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo, and I’d rather die before someone beats my ass or makes me tap. Zack Sabre Jr, im gonna beat your ing ass tonight.
Cameras cut back to ringside where ring announcer Scott Sariti is in the center of the ring.

JB: Alright Scotty here we go. A local talent showcase here between the two most popular tag teams in the area today. Stepdads and Atlantic City Scoundrels.
SG: Leo Zucko is what I’d like to call an innovator of offense, and can even make a mop look good. His Tag partner is the son of ECW wrestler 911. These teams are here to break out of the local scene and make names for themselves.

Belmost quickly ties Zucko up in a submission, sits on him and reads the newspaper he brought out with him as Zucko struggles to get himself free.
