I hope you enjoy and look forward to seeing your posts, also, i'm not afraid of constructive criticism, after all, without it how would we know what we need to work on in order to get better. Thanks!

Immediate Press Release:::
Date: October 15th 2014


International Wrestling Association board of directors is pleased to announce the signing of professional wrestling legend, world renown manager for NWA, WCW, and WWE(F), and former booker for TNA Wresting and Ring of Honor Wrestling, James E. Cornette. Jim Cornette has come to terms on a one year agreement with the IWA, taking on the roll of chief of talent operations and general manager of live events. Mr. Cornette will be holding a live press conference in the coming days to address the fans and the press, concerning upcoming events and the future of IWA Wrestling.



Press Release:::
October 25th 2014


Recap of Press Conference held by GM Cornette.

( Mr. Cornette entered the IWA Headquarters conference room and took to the podium as reporters from wrestling magazines from around the world snapped photos before taking a seat. )

"Jim Cornette"::: First let me welcome everyone to the new headquarters for International Wrestling Association. We chose Chicago Illinois for several reasons, obviously one being the history Chicago has played in professional wrestling, some of the greatest matches in the history have taken place in this great city and we wanted to say thank you to the fans in this area by making Chicago our new home. I would also like to acknowledge, though I have not been with this promotion very long, I have heard alot of good things coming out of this promotion, which is one of the reasons it didn't take very much persuading to get me to sign the dotted line to be apart of the new and improved IWA. Over the years IWA has become a huge hit, it has grown from a local "backyard" independent promotion to having a cult following. It is an honor to stand before you today and announce what the future holds for International Wrestling Association. No longer will you see IWA in just the Chicago market, but thanks to Right Guard, K-Y, Just For Men, and Coors Light, we will immediately begin to travel across the United States, and are currently in negotiations to host live events in Europe, Japan, Canada, as well as Mexico. By doing this we know we can not just depend on our traditional American talent that made the IWA popular, we will be showcasing competition from the most popular and in-demand international competition. The biggest question I have heard since signing with the IWA is who will make up the roster? Well let me break the news right here. IWA will be unique, some of the superstars you see make their way into IWA, might only be one time appearances, some may be apart of the organization for months or years, our main goal is to present to you, the fans, what you want, that is the best in ring competition money can by, which brings me to this announcement. Immediately after relocating, I reached out to one of the biggest stars to ever come out of the Chicago area and it is with great joy that I announce Chicago's own, Colt Cabana to be apart of future IWA events. From there, I wanted to grab two more of the hottest free agents on the market, two men that will easily help stamp legitimacy on the new and improved IWA product. Ladies and Gentlemen, those two men are world renown, they are Low-Ki, and John Morrison!!

( Mr. Cornette pauses for a moment as the crowd cheers for the announcement of the three signings. Photographers snap pictures for a moment before Mr. Cornette begins speaking again. )

"Jim Cornette"::: As I begin to wind down, I want to make another announcement involving the live events I previously mentioned. We are currently in negotiations with numerous network and cable providers, but we can announce at this moment, our very first pay per view event will be held November 16th title, "Rebirth!", featuring the first time ever match up of John Morrison vs. Low-Ki along with many other huge match ups. Including the crowning of our first ever World Tag Team Champions and with permission from our friends at Dragon Gate, the crowning of the first Open the Freedom Gate champion which will feature a mini-tournament, where the winner of a 10 man battle royal will face the winner of a triple threat match up. In closing, I would like to thank each and every one of you for attending, and for those of you reading this online. Without your support IWA would not be able to see the growth in which it has and we look forward to seeing you November 16th back here in Chicago Illinois for Rebirth!

Editor's Note: I usually use different colors to separate interviews and different segments between matches, anyone know why it's not letting me use the colors when I copy and paste the posts from my word pad?

Pre-Show

1. Amasis vs. Tony Nese

Great back and forth action between these two young stars. Amasis displayed his speed in the early going, taking Nese down with numerous variations of the arm-drag before ducking a clothesline and taking Nese down with a hurricanrana. Nese again got to his feet and attempted a clothesline but Amasis once again ducked but stopped Nese and the music cued up and we were treated with a dance competition that ended up with Nese losing his temper and attempting a running big boot, which Amasis ducked, cutting splits, connecting with a hip-toss, hitting a back handspring and connecting with a dropkick. Nese quickly gained control after rolling out of the way of a 450 splash attempt but when he attempted a brain-buster, Amasis was able to kick his way free, landing behind Nese and connecting with a Pat O'Connor roll up for the three count. After the match Tony Nese took to the referee, arguing Amasis held his tights during the pin but the referee would have none of it, leaving Nese in the ring screaming and arguing with the fans at ringside.

Winner - Amasis via pinfall

Main Show -

( A nice video package airs on the big screen, hyping up the history of IWA and then we see clips from the press conference held by IWA and Jim Cornette, finishing with Cornette saying "welcome to the future, welcome to the....Rebirth!" The pyro inside the arena explodes and we go ringside where we are welcomed to the show by our announcers for the evening, Mike Johnson and David Jett. They quickly take us to the ring where we are going to kick things off with triple threat action. )

1. Triple Threat Match

Winner advances to face the winner of 10 man battle royal for the Open the Freedom Gate Championship

Dragon Kid vs. ACH vs. AR Fox

It didn't take long after the opening bell for all three men show how important it was to gain the victory with ACH charging at Dragon, who ducked and rolled him up with a Pat O'Connor, AR Fox quickly followed with a sunset flip over Dragon Kid but only scored a two count. The final moments in the match saw Fox connect with an enzijiri kick to the head of Dragon Kid that sent him flying through the ropes to the floor. ACH attempted a superkick to Fox, but the boot was caught, Fox spins ACH around and leaps up onto the back of his shoulders, but ACH dropped Fox face first into the corner. ACH leaped to the top rope but Fox ran up the ropes connecting with a release German suplex and followed up with the signature shooting star leg drop, but the momentum of connecting with the maneuver sent Fox back to his feet, as he turned around to go back to ACH, Dragon Kid come out of nowhere, leaping from the top rope and connecting with the Dragon-Rana to score the 1,2,3!

Winner: Dragon Kid via pinfall

( After the match Dragon Kid climbs the corner, celebrating. We see some brief highlights of the match before going back ringside where Jim Cornette is shown, walking down the aisle making his way into the ring. Cornette waves to a few fans before picking up a nearby microphone. )

"Jim Cornette"::: Welcome wrestling fans from Chicago, and welcome fans who traveled from other parts of the country and world to be here tonight for IWA's Rebirth in professional wrestling!! I hope you enjoyed the first match on tonight's pay per view, hell I know you did because I could hear the standing ovation you gave those men afterwards! I'm not going to keep you people long because I promise you, we have alot more of what you just seen, including a ten man battle royal, the crowning of our first ever tag team champions and Freedom Gate champion, but I have some huge news for you people. Now I had to wait until tonight to do it, but I wasn't going to wait any longer to do it. You see apart of my job is I get to sign the best unsigned talent in the world, and two weeks ago, one of the biggest names in the free market come to terms on an exclusive contract with IWA. He is a former IWGP Heavyweight Champion, a former NWA Word Heavyweight Champion, the first ever TNA Grand Slam Champion, he is simply phenomenal! He is, A....J...Styles!!!

( The fans go wild as the music hits and AJ Styles makes his first appearance. Styles, high fives several fans on his way to the ring, and finally hitting his signature pose after entering the ring. After soaking the reaction in, he shakes the hand of Jim Cornette and takes the microphone. )

"AJ Styles"::: First things first, I know I signed a contract with IWA, but I want to say thank you to you, the fans, if it wasn't for you demanding the best competition in IWA I wouldn't be here tonight. Now I know I was brought here because the IWA has reached a new beginning, they have reached a milestone, it's time for IWA to rise to the occasion, and meet the demands of their growing fan base. I have heard the rumbling, I have saw the message boards, and I know what the fans want, so I'm not wasting any time. Mr. Cornette, when is AJ Styles going to get the opportunity to become the first IWA Word Champion?

( Jim Cornette calls for a nearby stage hand to hand him another microphone. As Jim Cornette raises the microphone up to speak he is interrupted by the sound of music over the PA System. "Copa Cabana" begins to play and the fans erupt in cheers as their hometown boy, Colt Cabana makes his way out the stage, dancing. Cabana slaps the hands of some fans as he makes his way down the aisle before finally entering the ring, where he shakes the hand of Jim Cornette. Cabana quickly walks over and picks up another microphone and begins to speak. )

 

"Colt Cabana"::: I hate to be the guy that comes out here and interrupts you during your big moment AJ, but I think if Mr. Jim Cornette is going to be making an announcement regarding future World Championship matches, it should somehow involve Chicago's own Colt Cabana!

"Jim Cornette": Well, before this turns into a big episode of Jimmy Springer let me stop both of you men right there and say I completely agree, AJ Styles, your accomplishments speak for themselves. Colt Cabana, you have a long list of accomplishments as well and I believe you are one of the most deserving superstars, that have never been given a fair chance, so this is what I'm going to do. Here tonight, live in Chicago Illinois, it's going to be AJ Styles going one on one with Colt Cabana. The winner, will be entered into the World Heavyweight Championship match at next month's pay per view event!

( Jim Cornette drops the microphone and exits the ring as both men try to approach him and ask who the other man will be but Cornette brushes off the questions and continues his way up the ramp as we get ready for our next contest of the evening. )

Winner advances to face Dragon Kid for the Open the Freedom Gate Championship

Uhaa Nation vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Tony Nese vs. Johnny Gargano vs Amasis vs. Frightmare vs. Matt Cross vs. Ruckus vs. The Amazing Red vs. TaDarius Thomas

Uhaa Nation started things off as the bell rang, nailing Frightmare with a clothesline out of nowhere sending him flying over the top rope, giving us our first elimination. Nation then nailed Matt Cross with a clothesline sending him over the top but he was able to hold on to the top rope. Nation then turned his attention to Tony Nese in the center of the ring but Cross sent both men down with a springboard double dropkick. Meanwhile Amazing Red eliminates TaDarius Thomas from the battle royal with a roundhouse kick to the back of the head that sends him over the top rope to the floor. On the other side of the ring Amasis ducks a clothesline attempt from Sonjay Dutt but turns around into a back kick from Dutt, who goes for a standing Slice Bread #2 but Amasis sends Dutt over the top rope to the apron. Nese then leaps to the second rope and connects with a dropkick that eliminates Sonjay Dutt, and Amasis connects with a clothesline eliminating Tony Nese. Tony Nese loses his temper on the outside, shoving a referee out of the way and snapping Amasis neck off the ropes before leaving. Meanwhile Ruckus Uhaa Nation catches Amasis in a fireman's carry as he spins around and F-5's Amasis to the floor. Johnny Gargano charges over, clotheslining Nation over the top rope but he holds on with one hand, saving himself from elimination. Back on the other side of the ring, Matt Cross and Amazing Red have fought to the top rope, Red connects with a huge spinning neckbreaker that sends both men crashing to the mat. They slowly get to their feet, Ruckus charges over, attempting to double clothesline both men over the top rope but they both duck and nail Ruckus with a double clothesline, eliminating him from the match.

Red connects with several punches to the head but Uhaa Nation runs up behind Cross and Red and send them both over the top to the floor.

Both men slowly get to their feet trading forearms and chops until Nation ducks a chop and connects with a code-breaker out of no where that sends Gargano staggering into the ropes. Nation charges in with a clothesline but his momentum sends both men over the top rope, but both me somehow manage to hold on. They both struggle to hold on, as each would try to gain their footing, the other would deliver a kick to the gut. Finally Nation connects with a low blow to Gargano that causes him to let go, and now only being hanging on by one hand. Gargano quickly catches Nation with a left hand, then a kick to the gut before gaining his footing, stepping back and catching Uhaa Nation with a running knee to the face that sends him to the floor for the final elimination and the victory!

Winner: Johnny Gargano via eliminating Uhaa Nation

3. Fenix, Volador Jr, and Mistico vs. BxB Hulk, Naruki Doi, and Masato Yoshino

Volador and Hulk started things off for their respective teams and went back and forth with some nice wrestling holds and reversals before both men made tags to Mistico and Yoshino and it broke down from there with action to fast to keep up with. Yoshino has earned the reputation of being the fastest wrestler in the world but after several up and over, and step overs with Mistico; Yoshino was the one to hook the ropes and stopped the action. Mistico would have none of it and charged for Yoshino, Yoshino ducked out of the way and Doi caught Mistico with a step up kick to the face that sent him staggering back in range for Fenix to make a blind tag. Yoshino charged at Mistico, but he was able to duck the clothesline and Fenix flew into the ring with a springboard crossbody to score a two count. Fenix's high flying offense didn't last long as he was eventually caught with a dropkick to the face from nowhere by BxB Hulk. The trio from Dragon Gate did their best to isolate and pick apart Fenix for a good ten minutes until he was able to duck a double back elbow attempt from Hulk and Doi and take both men down with a springboard moonsault. Fenix then caught Yoshino with a kick to the gut and laid him out with a tornado DDT. Fenix made the tag to Mistico and he entered the ring taking everyone out with dropkicks. Hulk caught Mistico with a boot to the gut and whipped him into the ropes, Mistico held on and sent Hulk over the top rope to the apron where he was met with a leaping hurricanrana from Volador that sent both men to the floor. Mistico then charged at Doi with a clothesline but Doi ducked and nailed Volador and Hulk with a suicide dive. Everyone on the floor gets to their feet, which lead to Fenix coming off the top rope with a moonsault onto everyone. Back inside the ring Mistico and Yoshino trade forearms and chops to the chest before Yoshino catches Mistico with a knee to the gut. Yoshino connects with the sling blade but only got a two count. Yoshino quickly lifted Mistico back up to his feet and hooked him for a back suplex but Mistico blocked, flipping backwards to his feet, hitting the ropes and connecting with La Mistica to get the submission victory!

Winner: Team Mexico ( Fenix, Volador Jr, and Mistico ) via submission

( After the match Team Mexico regrouped on the floor and celebrated for a moment as Team Japan made their way to the locker room. We hear a quick word from two of our sponsors for the evening K-Y and Coors Light before heading back to the ring for our next contest. )

4. John Morrison vs. Low-Ki

Four star match here with incredible and intense action from both men. Low-Ki was quick to light Morrison up with his strong style offense and rapid kicks and chops. Morrison was finally able to avoid one of the kicks and take Ki down with a spinning kick of his own to the back of Ki's leg and follow up with a standing shooting star press but only got a two count. Morrison quickly grabbed the leg and attempted to hook a figure four but Ki rolled Morrison up for a two count of his own and managed to beat Morrison to his feet and connect with a kick to the gut, then a stiff chop. Ki whipped Morrison into the corner and charged in with the tidal wave for a two count. Ki stalked Morrison as he got to his feet, Ki attempted the Ki-Crusher but Morrison broke free and nailed Ki with a release German suplex, dropping him on his neck. Morrison made his way to the top rope and attempted Star Ship Pain but Ki rolled out of the way. Morrison was able to land on his feet but looked to have injured his knee in the process. Low Ki quickly took advantage of the opportunity, nailing Morrison with a chop block to the back of the knee and spending the next several minutes working over the leg. Morrison was finally able to mount a comeback when he moved out of the way of Ki's attempted Phoenix Splash but Ki rolled to his feet and charged at Morrison who was beginning to stand up. Morrison caught Ki out of nowhere with a superkick that staggered Ki and caused Morrison to scream in pain. As Ki approached Morrison once again, Morrison caught Ki with a pele kick that sent both men down to the mat. Morrison rolled to the ring apron and made it to his feet just as Ki was starting to climb to his. Ki turned around and Morrison attempted a springboard but his injured leg buckled under him and Ki capitalized, hooking Morrison for the Ki-Crusher and charging to the corner, driving Morrison head first. Ki quickly went for the cover but only got the two count, due to Morrison getting his foot on the rope. Ki went to the top and Morrison slowly followed. Both men traded blows but Morrison was able to get the upper hand back dropping Low Ki to the mat and connecting with Starship Pain for the three count.

Winner: John Morrison via pinfall

( After the match Low Ki rolled out of the ring and made his way to the back, but looking back towards the ring the entire time as John Morrison celebrated his victory. Low Ki did not look happy as he went through the curtain. Meanwhile ringside, Morrison has made his way out onto the floor, shaking hands with fans. "All Night Long" by Lionel Richie begins to play over the PA and The Inner City Machine Guns begin to make their way out, dancing to the music. )

5. IWA World Tag Team Title Match

Inner City Machine Guns ( Ricochet/Rich Swann ) vs. The Wolves ( Davey Richards/Eddie Edwards ) vs. The Briscoe's ( Jay/Mark Briscoe ) vs. Best Friends ( Chuck Taylor/Trent? )

Jay Briscoe and Trent?, formerly known as Trent Baretta in WWE decide to start things off in this one. Trent quickly took Jay down with a shoulder tackle but after a step over, Jay leaped to his feet and caught Trent with a hurricanrana that sent him rolling into the corner of the Machine Guns. Ricochet made the tag and after a stare down with Ricochet Davey Richards made the tag to Jay to a mixed reaction from the crowd. Jay and Richards stared each other down for a moment before Jay made the first move, shoving Richards into the corner. Jay quickly went to swing but Richards ducked and started lighting Jay up with forearms to the face until Mark entered the ring but was cut off by Edwards with a spear. It didn't take long for all eight men to enter the ring and everything break apart as the fans erupted in cheers. During the midst of the brawl Chuck Taylor was able to sneak up behind Mark Briscoe and nail him with the Awful Waffle but only got a near fall as Jay broke up the pin attempt. Chuck quickly got to his feet but was taken right back down by Eddie Edwards who flew off the top rope, delivering a front dropkick that sent Taylor rolling out of the ring to the floor. Edwards then ducked down to avoid Rich Swann and sent him flying over the top rope onto Taylor in a crossbody. But Edwards couldn't avoid Trent? who leaped off the top rope into a sunset flip, and rolled through to his feet, holding the tights of Eddie Edwards to score the three count and eliminate The Wolves! The referee was finally able to somewhat contain the match and have the three remaining teams return to their corners with the exception of Rich Swann and Chuck Taylor who are battling it out in the middle of the ring. Taylor whips Swann into the ropes and connected with a beautiful dropkick to the face for a two count. Taylor locked in a full nelson to keep Swann on the mat. Ricochet got the fans behind Swann, yelling and dancing "All Night Long". Swann fired up, freeing an arm, and connecting with elbows to the gut, then hitting the ropes, ducking a clothesline and catching Taylor with a head-scissors. Taylor screamed like a girl as he charged towards Swann, but Swann took Taylor down with a drop toe hold. Swann signaled for his trademark step up fame-asser but as he hit the ropes Trent, caught him with a kick to the back. It didn't phase Swann as much as Trent would have liked, as Swann turned around and nailed Trent with a punch to the face, but Taylor charged in behind Swann looking for a school boy, but Swann rolled through and crawled through the legs of Taylor and made a double tag to The Briscoe's. The crowd went crazy which caused Taylor to slowly turn around and see what the excitement was all about. He charged at both men but they sent him flying up in the air with a double flapjack. Jay Briscoe then somehow caught Trent in midair after a crossbody attempt and tossed him up catching him in a death valley driver. The Briscoes then whipped Taylor into the ropes and caught him with a double shoulder tackle. Jay went for the cover but Ricochet was able to break it up at two! The action continued on for the next several minutes with Ricochet even connecting with a huge senton dive over the ring post onto Best Friends and The Briscoe's but the next elimination occurred when The Briscoe's connected with springboard Doomsday Device on Trent. The Briscoes quickly took it to the Machine Guns and lifted up Ricochet, attempting the same Doomsday Device but Ricochet was able to nail Jay with a reverse hurricanrana as Rich Swann ran down the apron and shoved Mark Briscoe off the top rope and onto the barricade. Back inside the ring, Swann hit the ropes and took to the air flying over the top rope onto Mark and sending both men to the floor. Ricochet took to the air as well but connecting with the 630 Splash to pick up the win for his team!

6. Open the Freedom Gate Championship Match

Dragon Kid vs. Johnny Gargano

Both men showed signs of wear and tear from their earlier matches but still held nothing back in this one. They started off with a show of respect; a handshake, and traded some nice chain wrestling holds. Things broke down and Dragon Kid showed just how bad he wanted this victory when he shoved Gargano off the top rope to the floor. Gargano battled back though and caught Dragon with several rapid fire kicks to the mid section and legs but when he leaped up for a hurricanrana Dragon Kid dropped him with a sit out powerbomb for a near fall. Dragon Kid signaled for another powerbomb but when he lifted Gargano up, Gargano floated over, sunset flipping Dragon, but both men continued to roll and Gargano caught Dragon with a dropkick to the face as he rotated to his feet. Gargano quickly followed up with a lionsault for a two count. Gargano lifted Dragon to his feet and whipped him into the corner, Gargano followed him in but ate a boot to the face. Dragon charged at Gargano but got nailed with a boot of his own. Gargano whipped Dragon into the opposing corner but he went up and over and caught Gargano with a forearm to the face and connected with a somersault stunner but somehow only got a two count. Dragon Kid went back to the top rope and went for his signature Dragonrana but Gargano turned it into a turnbuckle bomb and followed up with a fisherman neckbreaker and picked up the victory!

Winner: and 1st Open the Freedom Gate Champion; Johnny Gargano via pinfall

( After the match Johnny Gargano celebrates with his newly won championship for a moment before helping Dragon Kid to his feet. Dragon Kid looks around at the crowd for a moment and extends his hand, Gargano and Dragon Kid exchange a handshake and Dragon Kid leaves the ring as we go to a promo package for two of IWA's sponsors, Right Guard and Just For Men. )

7. AJ Styles vs. Colt Cabana

As to be expected, both of these men tore the house down, giving it everything they had in the middle of the ring. Cabana played the comedy roll well but Styles eventually grew tired of the games and hit the trademark leapfrog, made Cabana fall into the step over trap, and blasted him with a dropkick, busting the nose of Cabana. AJ wasn't finished there and delivered several brutal stomps to the head and tossed Cabana to the floor and whipped him into the ring steps. Styles tried to continue the assault on the outside but Cabana was able to counter a whip into the barricade and caught Styles with a back suplex onto the barricade. Cabana quickly rolled Styles into the ring and went for the cover but was only able to get a two count. Both men continued to go back and forth and the final moments saw Styles leap from the top rope, attempting a tornado ddt but Cabana put a stop to it and nailed a northern lights suplex into the corner for a near fall. Cabana quickly went for the Colt 45 but Styles floated over and caught Cabana with a spin kick. Styles went to the top rope and attempted the Shooting Styles Press but Cabana got the knees up and quickly capitalized with "Welcome to Chicago". Cabana then went to the top and connected with a moonsault but only got a two count. Cabana couldn't believe how close he had come to victory but wasted to much time arguing with the referee and was caught with a pele kick that sent him staggering into the ropes; AJ then caught him with a discus clothesline and immediately went for the cover but only got the two count. AJ quickly called for the Styles Clash and jerked Cabana up off the mat and hooked him but a masked man jumped the barricade and slid into the ring behind Styles and nailed him in the back with a forearm. Cabana charged at the man but was caught with a boot to the face. The referee immediately called for the bell and ruled the match a no contest.

Winner: No Contest via interference

( After the referee called for the bell the masked man continued his assault on Styles and Cabana, connecting with a release German suplex on Styles then an Olympic Slam on Colt Cabana. The mystery man then stood tall in the center of the ring, pulling off the mask and revealing himself as former collegiate and all-American wrestler, Tye Dillinger. The show comes to an end with a close up of the angry look on Dillinger's face as the crowd continues to boo. )

Pre-Show -





1. Matt Cross vs. Tony Nese


They opened things up with a great deal of chain wrestling until Nese got in a thumb to the eyes of Cross. Nese seized control of the action for the time being until he got too cocky and took too long on the top rope and Cross caught him with a dropkick in mid air. Cross capitalized and caught Nese with two clothesline, a back drop, then a standing moonsault but only got a two count. They showed a nice sequence of maneuvers when Cross picked Nese up and connected with a couple forearms, attempted to whip Nese into the ropes but Nese reversed and ducked down for a back drop but Cross attempted a tornado DDT, Nese shoved Cross off and into the ropes, when Cross come back, Nese attempted a superkick but Cross caught the boot, spun Nese around and went for a back suplex but Nese floated over and connected with a back-stabber but only scored a two count! Nese couldn't believe it and began arguing with the referee, Cross was able to take advantage of the opening and roll Nese up in a school boy for a two count. After several reversals and counters Nese was able to roll Cross up in a Pat O'Connor and hold the tights, but before the referee could make the three count, Cross rolled through, having Nese in the Pat O'Connor and hooked the tights for the victory!



Winner: Matt Cross via pinfall



( After the match Matt Cross rolled out of the ring and celebrated his victory on the stage as Tony Nese through a fit in the ring trying to explain to the referee that Matt Cross had pulled his tights to steal the victory. The referee would hear none of it and left the ring to hold Cross' arm up in victory. )






Main Show -






( The show kicked off this month with a recap of last month's epic event, including highlights from the four way tag team match to crown the first IWA World Tag Team champions and highlights of the main event between Colt Cabana and AJ Styles that ended in controversy when Tye Dillinger come from the crowd and laid out both men. We then go ringside where we are already being joined by Mr. Jim Cornette, who is standing in the center of the ring with a microphone in hand. )





"Jim Cornette": It seems to me there is already a bit of controversy brewing within the IWA. You see, I made a match last month where I told two men, two. AJ Styles and Colt Cabana, that the winner of their match would come here tonight in Philadelphia and challenge for the World Championship. That doesn't sound too difficult, win the match, win a opportunity to become the first Word Champion. The problem was, neither of these men were expecting a masked man to jump out of the crowd and beat the living hell out of them. Quiet frankly, neither was I, and this wasn't just any man, this man turned out to be a former All-American amateur wrestler, a former top prospect in the World of Wrestling, Tye Dillinger. Now as happy as I am to see Tye Dillinger accept the contract offer I sent out to him, this has left me in a little bit of a situation. But I'm Jim "By God" Cornette. I'm more than use to getting in tight situations, you see the original plan was for the winner of last week's match to face the winner of another match I had planned tonight, now that match is still going to take place, Chris Hero will still challenge Mike Quackenbush, in fact, it's going to happen next. But the new plan, the new plan is brilliant, it's genius, I smell the money just thinking about it. Tonight's main event, live in this very ring, will be for the IWA World Championship, it's going to be Colt Cabana, versus AJ Styles, versus Tye Dillinger! I promise you tonight people, history will be made, and there will be a champion crowned one way or another!




( Jim Cornette laid the microphone down and exited the ring as Mike Quackenbush's music hit the pa system. )

All three men put everything on the line in this one to become the first ever World Champion.

Tye was immediately sent over the top rope by a clothesline from Cabana. Cabana then went to the apron and connected with an asai moonsault onto Tye and Styles. Cabana got to his feet and played to the crowd for a moment before grabbing Tye and whipping him into the barricade. Cabana then attempted the same for Styles, but Styles was able to leap frog over the barricade and connect with a superkick to the face of Cabana as he charged in. Styles then charged over towards Tye but took a big elbow to the face before being thrown back inside the ring. Tye went for the cover but barely got a two count. He lifted Styles to his feet and whipped him into the ropes and connected with a quick backbreaker before going for the cover once again, again though he only got a two count for his trouble.

Tye walked towards Cabana, but Cabana caught him with a shoulder to the gut, through the ropes then a slingshot into a sunset flip and rolled to his feet for the extra momentum but before we could find out if it would be enough, Styles sunset flipped over Cabana and used his momentum to lift Cabana up off the mat and connect with the Styles Clash.

Tye looked down at the referee for a moment before looking back up with an evil grin on his face. Tye rolled out of the ring and walked over to the time keeper's table and grabbed the championship and rolled back inside the ring. The crowd booed as Tye lifted the belt up and began to stalk Cabana, but he forgot about Styles, who slid back inside the ring behind Tye and tapped him on the shoulder.

( After the match Jim Cornette's music hits over the PA system and he makes his way down the aisle to the chorus of boos from the crowd as Tye Dillinger waits in the ring. Once inside the ring Cornette grabs a microphone from a nearby ring producer standing on the floor and begins to speak. )

"Jim Cornette": All month, all I have heard is Jim Cornette, why? Why would I, James. E. Cornette get involved in such an important match last week. Why would I try to "screw" two guys that are so talented and deserving of being the IWA World Champion. Well let me introduce to you the reason why. Why is because this big man standing next to me. Tye Dillinger! That's why. For those of you that don't know the back ground of this man let me get you up to date and maybe then, just maybe you simple minded LA, wanna-be famous minds with grasp as to why I did what I did. Tye Dillinger is a former hockey player, he is one of the toughest men to ever come through the sport, but what most of you don't know is, before hockey, Tye was an amateur wrestler, this man brings legitimacy to our sport. He is one of the toughest and most talented men to ever step foot in a wrestling locker room and I knew that. Tonight you people witnessed the domination and devastation this man can cause, but later tonight, you are going to witness two friends step into the ring with each other and go to battle. You see since Colt Cabana and AJ Styles ruined my plans, I'm going to make sure I ruin their friendship tonight when they go one on one for AJ Styles World Championship!

( Tye Dillinger didn't look happy to hear this news and Cornette saw the look on his face and was quick to respond to this. )

"Jim Cornette": Hold up big man, don't worry. I always have a plan and tonight that plans goes into full effect. People, I promise you by the end of the night, if you don't already believe in the hype of Tye Dillinger, you will! Now to address the rest of the show tonight, before we see the World Championship match, we are going to witness five on five Global Warfare featuring the best of Mexico taking on the best of Japan. After the result of the John Morrison and BxB Hulk, we will see Low-Ki going one on one with Naruki Doi. You will also witness the debut to IWA, former WWE star, Paige, as she will be in one on one action, and that's not all, after a very impressive victory last week, The Young Bucks will challenge the Inner City Machine Guns for the World Tag Team Title's. I hope you all enjoy tonight's show, because I know, no, I guarantee, we will!

( Jim Cornette and Tye Dillinger then trade words that can't be heard over the microphone and exit the ring as we see a commercial from one of sponsors, and how fitting. K-Y. As we return from a short break, Paige's music hits and we are kicking things back off with woman's action for the first time in IWA history! )

3. Paige vs. Mia Yim

These two women definitely didn't disappoint in the first ever women's match for IWA and showed they are more than just "divas". They started things out with an amazing display of technical wrestling that eventually broke down into trading arm drags and both women going for a dropkick and coming to a standoff. Paige though, showed her true colors and after another lock up, she grabbed the hair of Mia and jerked her backwards, sending her to the mat. Paige assaulted Mia with several punches to the face and kicks to the mid-section before going for the cover and barely getting a two count. Paige lifted Mia to her feet, whipped her into the ropes and took her right back down with a hard clothesline then delivered a leg drop but again only got a two count. Eventually Mia was able to mount a comeback, ducking another clothesline attempt and connecting with a head-scissors then a spinning wheel kick for a two count. Mia got to her feet, and went to the top rope and waited as Paige made her way to her feet. Mia leaped from the top rope, connecting with a crossbody but Paige rolled through but only got a two count. Both ladies got to their feet, Paige went for a kick but Mia caught the boot, spun Paige around, then attempted a kick of her own, but Paige caught her foot, spun her around and connected with a spinning back kick to the gut and connected with the Paige Turner for the three count!

Winner: Paige via pinfall

( After the match Paige made her way to her feet and let out a loud scream as the referee raised her hand in victory. We then go backstage where the Briscoe's are standing by and are ready to speak. )

"Jay Briscoe": Fans, last week The Briscoe's made our debut right here in IWA. IWA, a company that promised us the opportunity to be seen and pushed as the greatest tag team in the world, something we've known we were for years, something you the audience has told us for years. So what happened? Tell them what happened Mark!

"Mark Briscoe": I'll tell you what happened Jay, we went to battle with two crazy monkey's that were swinging from one side of the ring to the other trying to out run, out wrestle, and out smarts us! Well the Briscoe's don't take too kind to that kind of action.

"Jay Briscoe": That's right. Last week the referee screwed us out of our opportunity to become the IWA Word Tag Team champions, and tonight we find out not only are we not getting a rematch for those tag team titles but we aren't even on tonight's show. So what do the Briscoe's do? Well we could sit back, enjoy a paid night off, we could sit back, enjoy a paid night off, and drink some beer, or we could sit back, watch the upcoming tag team title match between dem boys the Inner City Machine Guns and the California surfer boys The Young Pups, drink some beer, then kick the Inner City Machine Guns ass all over Los Angeles!

"Mark Briscoe": I like that idea! So boys, it's time for somebody to Man Up! And it's time for me and my brother Jay to find the concession stand!

Matt then dropped Swann down in a wheel barrow, long enough for Nick to slingshot to the apron and slingshot himself back inside to catch Swann in a wheel-barrow/x-factor combination. Matt quickly went for the cover but only got a two count. The Young Bucks continued to work over Swann until Nick whipped Swann into the ropes and ducked down for a back drop, but Swann caught him with a boot to the face, hit the ropes, Nick caught him for a side walk slam, but Swann floated over the shoulders and caught Nick with a reverse DDT. Swann got to his feet and caught Nick with a fame-asser and both men are down. The referee began the ten count and both men made it to their partners by the count of 8. Ricochet quickly leaped to the top rope and leaped over Matt, landing on his feet, and then rolling back to his feet and caught Matt with a calf kick and followed up with a standing shooting star press. Ricochet went for the cover but Nick broke up the pin at two. Nick lifted Ricochet to his feet and connected with rapid forearms to the face before hitting the ropes, Nick followed up with an attempted big boot but Ricochet side stepped, Nick turned around as Ricochet went for a superkick but he caught the boot and spun him around, Ricochet spun all the way around into a double superkick from the Young Bucks. Swann charged in and clotheslined Matt Jackson over the top rope and followed up with a crossbody to the floor on top of Matt. Meanwhile back inside the ring Nick went for a pin attempt but only got a two count. Nick couldn't believe he only got a two count and argued with the referee for a moment before Swann slid into the ring and spun him around and connected with a spinning back kick to the gut. Swann hit the ropes but Nick followed him in and caught him with an elbow to the face as he turned around. Nick then whipped Swann into the corner and caught him with a running step up knee to the face. Matt rolled back into the ring and the Young Bucks hooked Ricochet for More Bang For Your Buck but as Nick hit the 450, Matt leaped up to the top for the moonsault and Swann ran across the ring, leaped off the back of Nick and caught Matt with a dropkick that sent him flying off the top rope and into the guard rail. Swann then grabbed Nick and nailed running tornado ddt off the turnbuckles. Ricochet then pointed to the top rope and leaped up and connected with the 630 Splash and went for the cover 1..2..NO! Out of no where the Briscoe's slid into the ring, breaking up the referee's count and begin putting the boots to Ricochet, and Nick Jackson, leading the referee to call for the bell and rule the match a no contest.

Winner: No Contest via interference from The Briscoe's

( After the match Rich Swann grabbed Mark Briscoe and began throwing forearms to the face before hitting the ropes, but Mark caught him with a boot to the face and a Burning Hammer. Meanwhile Matt Jackson slid back into the ring and jumped on Jay Briscoe, pulling him away from Nick. This gave Ricochet enough time to regroup and nail Matt Jackson with a reverserana out of nowhere that sent him rolling out of the ring. Mark Briscoe then charged over and nailed Nick Jackson with a clothesline that sent both men over the top rope. This left Ricochet and Jay Briscoe slugging it out in the middle of the ring exchanging hard forearms to the face, Jay caught Ricochet with a knee to the gut, then hit the ropes and followed up with a boot to the face that sent Ricochet staggering back into the ropes. Jay again charged at Ricochet but Ricochet was able to duck down and sent Jay Briscoe flying over the top rope on top of everyone on the floor. Ricochet then went to check on his partner as referee's and other officials ran down the ramp to seperate The Young Bucks and The Briscoes on the floor but nothing could be done, Mark and Jay nailed several referees and officials with punches and forearms before jumping back on the Young Bucks, they eventually fought up the ramp and through the curtain. After a few moments we cut to a commercial break from our Coors Light sponsor. )

6. Global Warfare

Team Mexico ( Mistico, Rey Bucanero, Averno, and Volador Jr.) vs. Team Japan ( Jushin "Thunder" Liger, CIMA, Masato Yoshino, and Dragon Kid )

The rules were simple in this match up, no tags were needed, when your partner rolled out of the ring, you could enter the ring. The action was so fast and furious it was almost impossible to keep up with but the final minutes were more than noteworthy. The entire match they teased the square off between Mistico and Japanese legend Jushin Liger but it would never work out. Finally when then hot tags were made Mistico and Liger got the tags but again before they could make any contact, Bucanero nailed Liger in the back of the head with a missile dropkick that sent him flying out of the ring to the floor. CIMA charged in but was taken down with a leg sweep then a standing moonsault. From there everyone paired off in the ring. Team Japan gained control when Dragon Kid sent Averno over the top rope to the floor then caught Volador with a step up enzijiri kick. Yoshino then whipped Bucanero into the ropes, caught him with a tilt-a-whirl back breaker, but held on long enough for Dragon Kid to connect with an elbow drop to the the chest. Yoshino and Dragon Kid got to their feet and turned around into a double crossbody off the top rope from Mistico sending Yoshino to the outside. Moments later Team Mexico were left alone in the ring with Dragon Kid. Dragon Kid noticed the predicament and turned to leave but was caught with a superkick from Averno, and spun around into a brain-buster from Bucanero. Averno, Volador, and Bucanero then hit simultaneous suicide dives onto all the remaining members of Team Japan on the floor as Mistico connected with a springboard 450 splash to get the 1,2,3 on Dragon Kid!

Winner: Team Mexico via pinfall

( Team Mexico regrouped in the ring and shook hands as half of the crowd chanted Mistico and the other half chanted Liger. This led to Jushin Liger climbing up on the apron and having a brief stare down with Mistico before both men looked at opposing sides of the crowd then back and each other and shaking their heads up and down as if they were saying "yes you'll see it". Liger then hopped off the apron and joined his teammates on the ramp where CIMA shoved Liger away from him and continued up the ramp. We then see a quick commercial from our sponsors from "Right Guard" before coming back to ringside for our main event. )

Winner: and still IWA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles via pinfall

( After the match AJ Styles gets to his feet, the referee hands him his championship title and he climbs up in the corner and holds the championship high as the fans cheer him on. The cheers quickly turn to boos though as Tye Dillinger comes running down the ramp with a steel chair in hand. Tye slides into the ring and lets the chair go as AJ turns around to see why the crowd is booing. AJ leaps off the ropes onto Tye, and begins nailing him with right hands to the head, trying to send Tye to the crowd but it doesn't work and Tye spins Styles around, connecting with a hard spine-buster on the chair. AJ rolls to the ropes in pain as Tye quickly turns his attention to Colt Cabana, who is beginning to make his way up to his feet. Tye grabs Cabana from behind and connects with a german suplex. Tye then grabs the chair and sits it up, he then turns his attention back to Cabana and hooks him and delivers a devastating half nelson suplex into the chair. Tye gets back to his feet and looks at the damage he has caused as the crowd chants "holy sh**" in disbelief. Tye looks for AJ, and turns around and gets caught with a springboard forearm to the face that sends Tye flying. Tye gets to his feet and ducks a clothesline attempt from AJ, but gets caught with a pele kick.

Pre-Show -

1. Jigsaw vs. The Amazing Red

Fast paced action to kick off the pre show. Both men traded near falls and counters in the early going until Jigsaw realized the best way to out quick Red was to take the knee out and did just that when Red attempted a running tornado ddt off the corner, Jigsaw was able to sit Red on the top rope, connect with a palm strike, then ran up the ropes and caught Red with a dragon screw leg whip that sent Red rolling out of the ring in pain. Jigsaw quickly followed Red to the floor and attempted to grab the leg of Red but he caught Jigsaw with a kick to the mid-section. Jigsaw followed back with a kick to the side of the head. Jigsaw then lifted Red to his feet and delivered another dragon whip that sent the body of Red into the barricade that got a big ovation from the crowd. Jigsaw quickly rolled Red into the ring, followed and hooked the leg but only got a two count. Jigsaw quickly went back to work on the leg, locking in a half crab but Red eventually made it to the ropes, Jigsaw got to his feet and grabbed the leg of Red again, and attempted a figure four leg lock but Red used the injured leg to shove Jigsaw up and over the top rope to the floor. Red quickly pulled himself up, using the ropes. Red looked to the crowd for a moment as he waited for Jigsaw to get back to his feet, as soon as he did, Red flipped over the top, and caught Jigsaw with a hurricanrana. Red looked to have injured himself even worse though as he quickly clutched the already worn down knee and rolled around in pain. Both men made it to their feet about the same time and Red connected with a forearm to the face of Jigsaw before rolling him back inside. Red pulled himself up onto the apron and shook his injured leg before spring boarding to the top rope attempting another hurricanrana but Jigsaw held on, Red re-positioned himself on the shoulders of Jigsaw by spinning around and connected with a devastating reverse hurricanrana. Red, still favoring the leg, got to his feet and connected with a standing shooting star press to the back of Jigsaw. Red rolled him over and went for the cover but Jigsaw got his foot on the ropes at two! Red lifted Jigsaw back to his feet and connected with a right hand before attempting to whip Jigsaw into the ropes but Jigsaw reversed sending Red into the ropes.

Jigsaw connected with a couple stiff forearms to the face before picking Red up and driving him back first into the corner. Jigsaw connected with several shoulders to the midsection before lifting Red up to the top rope. Jigsaw hooked Red for a superplex but Red blocked the attempt and fired back with several forearms of his own before leaping onto the back of Jigsaw and attempting the Code Red but Jigsaw held onto the top rope and back dropped Red back into the ring.

Both men started things off with a lock up, but Homicide quickly took Cross to the corner and lit him up with rapid forearms before shooting him off to the opposing corner. Homicide charged in, but Cross went up and over, Homicide turned around and got caught with two arm drags and a hurricanrana that sent Homicide rolling back to his feet and into the corner.

Homicide dove from the top rope looking to connect with a diving spinning back elbow but Cross leaped up and caught Homicide with a dropkick to the back of the head as he was spinning.

He helps Homicide to his feet and connects with a spinning back kick to the gut then hits the ropes, Cross leaps up on the back of Homicide and connects with a standing moonsault onto Homicide while standing on his back. Cross leaps over the top to the apron and runs up to the top rope, he goes for a twisting split legged moonsault but Homicide got the knees up.

3. Open the Freedom Gate Championship Match

Johnny Gargano© vs. Alex Shelley

Both men start things off circling each other before a quick hand shake then a lock up. Shelley takes the arm but Gargano makes his way to the ropes, grabs the top rope then front flips, and reverses into an arm ringer of his own. Shelley rolls through, reverses back into another arm ringer, then a drop toe hold, before transitioning into a headlock. Both men work their way to their feet before Gargano delivers a couple elbows to the gut then shoves Shelley into the ropes. Shelley comes back with a shoulder tackle and looks to the crowd, but before he can hit the ropes the lights inside the arena goes out. After a moment gun shots are heard and the crowd begins to cheer in anticipation. When they come back on the crowd goes crazy and begins chanting "holy sh*t" as they see Prince Devitt, The Young Bucks, Doc Gallows, and Karl Anderson, The Bullet Club standing in the center of the ring with Alex Shelley and Johnny Gargano laying motionless in front of them. The referee calls for the bell ruling the match a no contest but The Bullet Club is obviously not finished.

Winner: No Contest via interference

( After the referee called for the bell Prince Devitt pointed to The Young Bucks then down at both, Shelley and Gargano. The Bucks quickly lift Shelley up off the mat and nail More Bang For Your Buck as Devitt shakes his head in approval. Devitt smiles as he points to Gallows and Anderson then down to Gargano. Gallows lifts Gargano up off the mat and lifts him up in a suplex, he drops the legs across the shoulders of Anderson before then drop him in a spinning neck breaker, sidewalk slam combination. Prince Devitt then leaps to the top rope and flies off with the double stomp to the chest of Gargano. Devitt gets back to his feet and demands for the ring side official to bring him a microphone so he can speak. )

"Prince Devitt": Wrestling world, take notice, The Bullet Club has arrived! We have already taken over Japan, and today, we start our quest, our quest to take over the United States, our quest to take over IWA. For those that know about us, you know there are more brothers out there, including a fellow brother in arms, here in IWA, you the fans, here in Chicago, and you the fans watching from around the world worship him, that man is your IWA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles! I am asking AJ, come home, come back to The Bullet Club and let's do this together. We will give you the time to think about the offer, but you know it's better to be with us than against us. Alex Shelley and Johnny Gargano found that out the hard way tonight, and later tonight, The Inner City Machine Guns will find that out as well when The Young Bucks bring home the IWA Word Tag Team Titles.

( Devitt drops the microphone and The Bullet Club poses in the center of the ring before exiting the ring and heading to the back. We cut to a quick commercial from our sponsors at "Just For Men" before coming back to the ring and the familiar sound of a car crash as heard and the crowd again comes unglued as we are being joined by the debuting Mick Foley! Foley comes out on the stage as the crowd chants Foley, he makes his way down the ramp and into the ring, before picking up a microphone. Foley pauses for a moment as the crowd continues to chant his name, after they begin to calm down Foley begins to speak. )

"Mick Foley": Thank you for that warm reception, and I'm not going to lie, it's been a long time since I've heard a reception quiet like that, so long, that it actually brought a tear to my eye. But as nice as that ovation was, I'm not here tonight to to soak in all the adulation's, I'm here tonight to give adulation's. You see no matter where I go in the world these days, all I hear is "Mick, what do you think about IWA? Mick, when are you going to come to IWA?" Well I can answer both of those questions right now. Mick is here in IWA, in the middle of a IWA ring, where IWA was born, right here, in, Chicago Illinois!! But as nice as that cheap pop is, I'm not here for that tonight either, you see I'm here tonight to tell you the fans, that I've seen the product, and it is amazing! You have guys that are coming up in the ranks, getting the opportunity to come out here on pay per view once a month, and all the house shows IWA is running, and they are showcasing their skills, and extraordinary talents in front of a larger audience. They are scraping, and clawing for what is rightfully theirs, and that's a spot on a national stage. I can relate to that too. You see about twenty years ago, I too, was scraping and clawing to gain a spot on a national stage. I know the times have changed over the years, it's obvious by watching the IWA DVD's the in ring action has changed, so I'm not going to insult you people and tell you I'm here to step into the ring and go toe to toe with the best IWA has to offer. I am here though to tell you people, you will be seeing Mick Foley in IWA, just not in the ring. I want to give back to the newest generation of superstars, and I want to do that here in the greatest professional wrestling company on the market today! So, I'm going to be hanging out backstage at some of the upcoming events, lending my knowledge, the knowledge that I can remember, I mean after all I've had a concussion or three in my days of in ring competition.

( Before Mick Foley can continue he's cut off by the sound of siren, then "You're Not Ready" by 50 Cent begins to play and Homicide makes his way out onto the stage, bouncing to his music as the crowd "oohs" as if they know what is coming. Homicide makes his way down the ramp and up the stairs, as Foley watches on. Homicide teases climbing through the ropes for a moment before eventually climbing through and grabbing the microphone laying on the mat in the corner. Homicide wastes little time approaching Mick Foley and beginning to speak. )

"Homicide": Who the fu..... haha. Who the hell do you think you are Mick Foley? Coming out here and trying to BS these people into believing you know what we are going through? You have no idea, time's have changed. You're right about the guys in the back having to scrape and claw, but the difference between scraping and clawing now than then is, you obviously scraped and clawed at dinner plates, while Flair, Sting, Rhodes, and Butcher scraped and clawed to see who was the best wrestler, but none of those guys were going out there every single night, flying through the air, crashing and burning and smacking that cold hard floor like we do!

"Mick Foley": You.....

"Homicide": No, you shut the hell up, I'm not finished speaking. Earlier tonight, I made my debut here in IWA, and I'm not naive like the rest of those punks in the locker room. I've been in several dressing rooms with you before and heard you say, I'm here to share my knowledge, I'm not here to wrestle, well I'm calling your bluff now, I've heard the same old song and I've seen the same lame ass dance, and I am putting my name at the top of your damn list, when you get tired of trying to fool yourself and these people, I want to be the guy you step into the ring with, and I want to be the guy that finishes your old ass off once and for all!

( The crowd breaks out into a "one more match' chant as Foley looks to the crowd and acknowledges the chant before beginning to speak. )

"Mick Foley": As much as I'd love to give you, and these people what you all want, I honestly did not come to IWA to wrestle. Now, now, before you people boo me out of the building, I said I didn't come back to wrestle, I never said anything about possibly coming back to fight! So let me lay it all out there for you Homicide, I know your hand, I've seen you come up in Brooklyn, fighting for nothing to wrestling for everything, so if you want me so bad, prove it! If I heard you correctly earlier you said you were better than Butcher, correct?

"Homicide": You're damn right I'm better than Butcher, I'm better than you too, hell I could make a list a mile long of all you so called hardcore "icons", this is a new day Foley, there is only one icon in this business and he's the Notorious 187!

"Mick Foley": Right right, so what you're telling me is that if Butcher was to appear here in IWA next month you could kick his ass in whatever match the people wanted?

"Homicide": Yeah, right, if you can roll him onto a plane and get him in this ring, I'll kick his ass from one corner to the next, and when I'm finished with him you can bring anyone else you got, and I'll handle my business with them, and this can go on and on until you grow the balls to step into the ring with me yourself Foley! Good God Foley just be a man and face me already, let's do this!!!

"Mick Foley": Let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet Homicide, because I'm in no shape to get into this ring as an active competitor, at least not yet. And I'm not sure which Butcher you think you just agreed to a match with, but this Butcher doesn't have much problem's with walking, actually the only problem this Butcher really has is finding opponents, but thanks to you, next month he won't, because next month he will make his debut here in IWA, against you, and since you think your better than me, I guess you think your better at hardcore than me, so I think the fans want to see this match under hardcore rules.

"Homicide": You tell Abby I got him in hardcore, I'll gladly take that fork and shove it up his.....

"Mick Foley": Woah, wait Homicide, nobody ever said anything about you facing Abdullah the Butcher, I'm talking about next month in a hardcore match, it will be Homicide versus my good friend, The Necro Butcher!!! Have a nice day!

( Mick Foley rolled out of the ring as Homicide lost his cool inside the ring, kicking the corner's then running over to the ramp side of the ring and screaming at Foley to face him in the ring. Mick Foley waved at Homicide then continued up the ramp and disappearing behind the curtain. Meanwhile Homicide rolled out of the ring and yelled to the fans that Foley is nothing but a phony as he made his way up the ramp. He eventually disappeared and we were ready for our next match of the night. )

4. Naruki Doi and BxB Hulk vs. John Morrison and Low Ki

Hulk and Morrison started things off for their teams and displayed their high flying skills, trading arm drags and head scissors until Hulk whipped Morrison into the ropes and Doi caught Morrison with a kick to the back. This just infuriated Morrison and he turned around and attempted a step up enzijiri kick on Doi but he ducked down, Morrison landed on his feet and Doi snapped him neck across the top rope. Morrison staggered back into a bridging German suplex but Ki broke up the count at two.

Cornette whispers something into the ear of Tye and both men smile before Cornette begins to speak as AJ looks on. )

"Jim Cornette": Are you happy now AJ? Is that the results you wanted? Because we are! That's exactly what we wanted, and exactly what I told Tye would happen. You see I told Tye you couldn't mind your own business and let things just happen on there own. It looks as though, you're going to have to learn the hard way, just like The Briscoe's had to learn the hard way last month. You see, they decided to strike my referee's and my officials, so I was left with no other option but to indefinitely suspend them from the IWA. Now I'm not stupid, I know you are the World Champion, and I know you do good business for the IWA, so I'm not going to indefinitely suspend you, but I am canceling your plane ticket to next month's pay per view event, and if that's not enough for you, while your sitting at home next month watching the pay per view from your couch, you can watch your good buddy that you just knocked out with the World Championship, Colt Cabana take on your other real good pal that gave you the ultimatum of a lifetime, Prince Devitt, AND the Future World Champion, Tye Dillinger in a two on one handicap match! Now AJ Styles, get out of my ring and while you're at it, get out of my building!

3. Hardcore Rules Match


Homicide vs. Necro Butcher


Homicide made his way to the ring to a chorus of boos but quickly exited the ring as Necro Butcher's music hit and he made his way out onto the stage. Homicide met Necro in the aisle and both men began trading rights and lefts until Necro caught Homicide with two stiff right hooks then whipped Homicide into the barricade. Homicide made his way back to his feet but Necro grabbed him and whipped him into the barricade again. Necro looked around at the crowd and waved them off, as if he was leaving. Necro made his way back up the ramp and disappeared behind the curtain to a course of boos, the boos quickly turned back to cheers though as Necro reappeared, but brought a shopping cart full of "toys" with him. Homicide quickly got to his feet but Necro shoved the cart down the ramp and into the mid-section of Homicide, sending him staggering back towards the ring. Necro grabbed a couple chairs from the cart and tossed them into the ring, then a stop sign and nailed Homicide in the head, sending Homicide to his knees. Necro then looked back inside the cart, moving items around before letting out a smirk. Necro pulled out a baseball bat wrapped in barbwire and took aim for Homicide as if he was a MLB player looking for a game winning home run. Homicide was able to catch what was happening before it was too late and caught Necro with a kick to the groin. Homicide grabbed the bat, holding it above his head for a moment before dropping it across the back of Necro, sending Necro to his knees, letting out a yell in pain. Homicide smirked before tossing the bat into the ring and grabbing Necro, sending him into the ring as well.

Winner: Homicide via pinfall



( After the referee called for the bell, the referee raised Homicide's hand in victory but he quickly pulled it away and rolled out of the ring and began making his way to the back as referee's and other officials made their way to the ring to check on Necro Butcher and clean the ring of all the weapons that were just used. Meanwhile, Homicide disappeared behind the curtain on the stage as we go to a commercial from our sponsors at Just For Men. When we came back, we are joined by a camera backstage following Homicide into a locker room where he find's Mick Foley standing next to the TV. )



"Homicide': Did you see that Mick, did you see what I did to your hand picked flavor of the month? Are you ready? Was that enough to get you to get that "spark" to get back inside the ring?



"Mick Foley": Yeah! I saw exactly what happened. That was impressive, I'll give credit, where credit is due. You went out there and you beat my hand picked man. But NO! I'm not getting back in the ring, I told you last month, i'm not here to wrestle, i'm not here to hog the spot light of these young superstars who are trying to make their way to the top, i'm here to help them in any way that I can, and if you have a problem with that then I guess that's just too bad, Have a Nice Day Homicide, because I know I sure as hell am, and I'm going to continue to have plenty of nice day's knowing my days of getting into the ring are over, and that they are going to be spent giving advice to the guys that need it, and not taking the spot light away from them by stepping into the ring with pieces of crap like you!



"Homicide": Have a nice day...... have a nice day, you know what Foley, if coming to you and challenging you to a match won't get you into the ring, and your so content on having a nice day, how about you have a great day after this.....



( Homicide slaps Foley in the face and spits on him then laughs, but the laughter quickly ends as Foley jumps at Homicide and both men begin trading punches. The fight quickly ends though as officials rush into the room and pull both men apart from the fight. After a moment the struggle lightens up as Homicide speaks again. )



"Homicide": Come on Foley, meet me in the ring you know you want to do it. The fans want it, just give it to them already, give it to me!



"Mick Foley": If it's a fight you want, then it's a fight you'll get, next month! But only if you beat the next challenger I put in the ring with you. He's another legend in the hardcore world, but this time he's a dear friend of mine from E....C....W! Terry Funk!!! If you can make it past Terry, then and only then will we meet in the middle of the ring and we will settle this once and for all you self centered son of a b***h!



( The camera then quickly cut back to the ring where we are getting ready for our next contest of the night! )

Doc grabbed Swann in a German suplex and The Young Bucks attempted a double superkick but Swann was able to duck under, causing the Bucks to double superkick Doc, Swann springboarded to the second rope and connected with a asai moonsault onto the Bucks. Swann slowly made his way towards his corner but The Bucks grabbed him by the feet. Swann shoved them backwards but as they made their way back towards Swann, Gargano springboarded to the top and connected with a double dropkick that sent The Bucks flying backwards and out of the ring. Swann then made the tag to Alex Shelley as Doc made the tag to Anderson.

Shelley then threw the boot up to Doc, who caught the foot, Shelley went for the enzijiri kick but Doc ducked, causing Shelley to connect with the kick to Anderson, who staggered back, falling across the middle rope. Doc pulled Shelley up to his feet and went for a back suplex but Shelley floated over, and rolled out of the ring as Swann and Ricochet come out of nowhere with dropkicks to Doc that sent him flying back into the corner. Meanwhile Shelley ran around the ring and leaped up onto the ring apron connecting with a dropkick to the face of Anderson. Back inside the ring, Swann and Ricochet criss-crossed in the ring and connected with stereo suicide dives onto the Young Bucks on the floor. Shelley rolled back into the ring and pointed towards Doc, who was making his way to his feet. Shelley charged into the corner and connected with the double knees to the chest, then pulled Doc out into the ring and connected with a Cradle Shock but could only get a two count! Shelley then pointed to the turnbuckle, where Gargano was standing, and he flew off connecting with frog splash! 1...2...NO Matt Jackson dove in at the last possible moment to break up the pin attempt! Shelley lifted up Matt off the mat, flipping him off and attempting a superkick but Matt ducked, attempted a superkick of his own, but Shelley caught the boot, but still was caught with a superkick from Nick Jackson who had slid into the ring.

Winners: The Bullet Club via pinfall



( Rich Swann and Ricochet had both dove into the ring to break up the count but it was too late. The referee called for the bell and rolled out of the ring to meet with The Young Bucks on the floor and raised their hands in victory. The celebration was short lived as The Young Bucks went around the ring to help their brothers, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson up to their feet. All four men eventually made their way around ringside and celebrated on top of the stage as The Inner City Machine guns motioned that they wanted their tag team titles back! We then cut to a commercial from our sponsors at Right Guard before returning back to ringside where we are getting ready for our next match of the evening! )



5. John Morrison vs. Chris Hero


This was a first time ever encounter between these men and they sure did not disappoint. They started things off with a traditional lock up but Hero quickly took the arm of Morrison and swept the leg out from underneath him. Morrison kipped up and grabbed the top rope, back flipped out and was able to take the arm of Hero. Hero rolled through, again, using his legs to trip Morrison down and apply a leg lock.

Winner: Chris Hero via pinfall



( After the match Chris Hero went to the second rope and celebrated his victory, pointing to the elbow he had used to knockout John Morrison before the camera cut to a commercial from our sponsors at "Coors Light". After the commercial we go back to ringside where the ring is decked out in plaid, a flat screen had been lowered into the ring, and two director style chairs sat in the middle of the ring. After a moment the familiar bag pipes began to play and "The Hot Rod" "Rowdy Roddy Piper made his way out onto the stage to a huge ovation from the crowd. He played to the crowd for a moment then made his way on down the ramp and into the ring where he grabbed a microphone from one of the chairs. He tried to speak but paused for a moment to soak in the ovation from the crowd once more. After a moment, he used his hands to motion for the crowd to quieten down so he could speak. )



"Roddy Piper": Ha...ahhh, I got to tell you, all my years in this crazy business and you people here in Philadelphia never cease to amaze me. Even when I was apart of numerous main events at The Spectrum, I don't even believe those reactions compared to the ovation you great fans gave me here tonight in The Arena. For that I say thank you, but as always, tonight's not about me. Tonight's about you, the fans here tonight, the fans watching at home, all the pro wrestling fans around the world. You see, tonight, I'm here to ask the questions, not just any questions, but the tough questions. The questions, you the fans want answers to, they are the questions, you the fans deserve answers to. So let's not waste any time, my guest tonight on Pipers Pit, is none other than the head of talent relations, James E. Cornette!



( Jim Cornette's music begins to blare over the PA system, the fans begin to boo, but Cornette doesn't appear on the stage. After a few moments the music cuts out and Jim Cornette appears on the video tron and in the middle of the ring on the TV screen in the middle of Piper's Pit. Jim Cornette is laughing as the fans boo even louder seeing that he is not in front of them in person. Cornette finally stopped laughing and sat quietly, letting the fans get their booing out of the way before he finally began to speak. )



"Jim Cornette": Piper, before you start with these hard hitting, in depth, need to know questions as you like to call them let me just get something out in the open. There is a reason I'm not live, in Philadelphia tonight. Actually there are several but first and foremost, I'm not there tonight because quiet honestly those things, those drunk, garbage wrestling fans, that Philadelphia calls citizens are not worthy of seeing such greatness as myself. Secondly you never asked me to appear on Piper's Pit before, and I felt it was a spit in my face. I am the greatest wrestling manager to walk the face of this earth, the greatest mind this wrestling business has ever seen, and it took you over twenty five years to ask me to be on your show so this is my way of saying I'm quiet honestly too good to be apart of your show. I'm a busy man, I'm in demand, I'm a wrestling savant. Stepping into the middle of the ring with you would set my career back twenty years. But I did agree with the owners of IWA to have you as apart of my show, and I did agree you could have any guest you had wished. I did not however expect you to ask me to be apart of your show. So here I am, I'm apart of your show, just not there in person.



"Roddy Piper": Cornette, you can take all the cheap shots you want at me, and since we are being honest, I'll be honest. You wasn't my first choice. Actually, when I said I wanted to interview the most notable name to screw the wrestling fans out of their money, David Arquette was busy, so I was stuck interviewing you!



( Jim Cornette is shown mockingly laughing at Piper's comment but quickly cuts Piper off before he can continue with the insults. )



"Jim Cornette": You've always been a funny man Piper but lets cut to the chase, because let's face it. Time is money, and you standing in the middle of my ring, talking all night, is not making me any money, it's burning it.



"Roddy Piper": It's funny you should bring up time and money in the same sentence because that's exactly what this is all about! Jim Cornette, my first question is why? Why do you claim to care so much about this business, but you bring in a young guy with tons of potential like Tye Dillinger, and pay him out of your own pocket to put the screws to a great champion like AJ Styles?



"Jim Cornette": Is that what this is all about? Why why why why, that's all I hear anyway and the answer is quiet simple. Because I can! I am Jim Cornette, I am a fountain of knowledge, I am the smartest man in this business and I know this term gets thrown around by just about everyone these days but what I say you can literally take to the bank. You can take to the bank that I know what is best for business. AJ Styles is a disease to this business. He goes to the ring and he does all these "amazing" flips, he's agile, he's talented, but he's not smart. He had his opportunity to work WITH me, but he chose to work AGAINST me! I'm not going to take that lying down, you want to embrace these fans, like they know what is good business. These fans barely know whether they are related to their husbands or wives before they tie the knot, much less what true talent is. The fans labeled AJ Styles as "The Phenomenal One" the fact of the matter is, AJ could have been Phenomenal if he would have taken my advice and followed my lead, now he is sitting at home paying for it, while a real Phenomenal athlete like Tye Dillinger will step into that ring in Philadelphia and showcase wrestling ability at it's finest!



"Roddy Piper": If you call stealing wins and cheating your way to victory wrestling ability then you're right Jim, and trust me before you try to argue that your flavor of the month Tye Dillinger isn't cheating and stealing wins, I know better than anyone about cheating. I made my career by using his same tactics, but you see I don't claim to be....well the dirtiest player in the game, you see my next guest, he made his career being the dirtiest player in the game.



"Jim Cornette": Wait, what? Your next guest? I didn't agree to another guest being apart of this, you didn't tell me about this!



"Roddy Piper": You're right Jim. I didn't inform you about another guest, but you know what I agreed to. If Piper's Pit was going to be apart of IWA, then I had who I wanted on my show, when I wanted them on my show. And my next guest is another man who just like me, wants to know your real agenda behind running IWA. He wants to ask a few questions of his own. He is a man you are very familiar with. Hell, he is a man everyone in Philadelphia and around the world over is very familiar with. Ladies and Gentlemen......"The Nature Boy"....Woo Ric Flair!



( "Woooooo" is heard over the PA System and Ric Flair's music begins to play. After a moment Ric Flair appears, strutting out onto the stage and begins to make his way to the ring. Flair makes his way up the steps and into the ring where he and Piper greet each other with a hug. Flair then grabs a microphone out of the chair. Before he can speak he is cut off by an irate Jim Cornette. )



"Jim Cornette": What in the hell are you doing on my show! Ric Flair, I don't know who you think you are but I did not approve this and......



"Ric Flair": WOOOOOO, James E. You don't know who I am? Well let me remind you who I am. I am the limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, and Lord knows about all the kiss stealing I did back in the day right here in Philadelphia! Wheeling dealing son of a gun! And Jim I hate to cut you off brother but I think it's safe to say nobody here tonight gives a rats ass what you have to say right now. Right now, I think these people want to know what I have to say because we all know I don't show up unless something serious needs to be addressed, and the issue at hand tonight is personal. Piper if you don't mind, I have a few questions for Mr. Cornette I'd like to get answered?



"Roddy Piper": Like I said earlier, tonight is about getting answers, and Ric, if you have some questions for Jim Cornette, I'm more than sure they are need to know, so the floor is yours my friend.



"Ric Flair": Cornette! You have been coming out here month after month putting the screws to AJ Styles. We both know the history me and AJ have, AJ is a man, a great man, and a great champion. He can handle is own, he has shown that over and over but I want answers for issues that go beyond that. It's no secret in that locker room about the talent signed to this company, and being looked at by this company. You say you want what is best for this company and what is best for this business, but where are all these great athletes?



"Jim Cornette": I, I have no idea what you are talking about?



"Ric Flair": Really? Haha Really? Do you think we are stupid, blind, or stupid and blind? There are a lot of great talents on IWA pay per views every month, but I want to know about the talents we don't see here tonight. Of course The Nature Boy can't mention talent without mentioning women, but I'm not talking about the women that will be waiting outside in line ready to get in my limo, I'm talking about women like Paige, Mickie James, Tara, most importantly my daughter, Charlotte. All are women you have signed exclusively, among others, to IWA and you refuse to put them out here in this very ring. I want to know why you aren't taking these women seriously. Not only are they all very beautiful, but they are all even more talented.



"Jim Cornette": I.....



"Ric Flair": And while you are answering that question why don't you answer this question. You see while I was at the headquarters of IWA, negotiating my appearance, it was also brought up about other male talents that are more than capable coming out here infront of these great fans and stealing the show every night. Why don't you explain that one "boss".



"Jim Cornette": If you would shut your mouth long enough, maybe I could answer your question and you wouldn't get those idiots in Philadelphia even more drunk than I'm sure they already are, because I can smell the stench of cheap wine, and even cheaper hookers floating through the TV screen. You want answers though Flair? I'll give you the answers you and your so called fans want. I could give you the short answer, I could just tell you I don't them on my shows or the company I'm trying to run. The fact is, the powers to be had a clause in the contract. The contract stated I could sign, and do as I please, but I also had to take their vision, I had to sign go along with whoever they signed as well. Unfortunately it was those that you mentioned, along with several others that aren't even worth mentioning in my opinion. Ric, Piper, I have a vision, a vision I'm going to see through even if it's the last thing I do. That vision is simple, I'm going to take the very best in the wrestling business, we are going to take this company over and run off these young punks you people think are the future. There is no future, there is the present though, and presently I see the cream of the crop and those men are Tye Dillinger, The Bullet Club, and I have plenty more friends just waiting to step foot into IWA and rid it of the garbage I have spoke about. Now I think I have answered enough questions, in closing, if you want to get just a glimpse of what the future is going to be like for IWA and the people that turn their back against me just wait until you see what Prince Devitt and Tye Dillinger do to Colt Cabana in the main event. You're going to love it, well at least I will! Consider this interview over!



( Jim Cornette then stands up and removes the microphone piece from his shirt collar and walks off. We then went back to ringside where Piper and Flair were trying to speak on their microphones but it was obvious they had been shut off. Both men looked angry and Flair quickly grabbed a camera man and let the viewing audience know that if Cornette did not do the right thing he would be back! We then went to a commercial break from our sponsors at "Just For Men". When it finished we returned ringside where we were ready for our next contest of the evening. )



6. Mistico vs. Jushin "Thunder" Liger


After the referee called for the opening bell both men made their way to the center of the ring and exchanged a handshake. It didn't take long for the action to start off after that with a quick lock up with Mistico taking the head lock. Liger quickly connected with an elbow to the mid section then shoved Mistico into the ropes. Mistico charged back with a tackle, then hit the ropes, followed by a step over. Liger got to his feet in time to leap frog Mistico, who hit the ropes again, but Liger dropped to his back as Mistico leaped over him, front rolling back to his feet as Liger kipped up. Mistico charged back at Liger again but was caught with a Japanese arm-drag, then another arm drag that Liger held onto and locked in an armbar. Mistico made his way to his feet and connected with a knee to the gut before attempting to whip Liger into the ropes but Liger reversed sending Mistico in. Again Liger with a leap frog and a drop down, Mistico with the step over and got caught with a calf kick as he come off the ropes. Liger went for the cover but only got the two count. Liger made his way to the top rope and waited as Mistico began to turn around. Liger leaped off the top looking for a crossbody but got caught with a dropkick in mid air. Mistico went for the cover but only got a two count. Mistico got to his feet and pulled Liger to his feet and delivered a gut buster and again went for the cover but only got a two count. Mistico quickly went back to work on the mid section of Liger and continued so even though Liger was able to mount several comebacks through-out the match. The final minutes of the match saw Liger again make a brief comeback with several kicks to the legs and body of Mistico before connecting with a massive palm strike to the face. Liger then whipped Mistico into the ropes and went for a rolling clothesline but Mistico hooked the arm and caught Liger in an Octopus Stretch. Mistico stretched the body of Liger, eventually sending him to his knees, looking to tap. Finally Liger got the strength to fight back, slowly working his way back to his feet then out of no where, tossing the body of Mistico onto his shoulders and connecting with a death valley driver. Both men slowly made their way back to their feet but Liger was quick to capitalized on the advantage with two clotheslines, ducking a clothesline attempt from Mistico and connecting with a springboard moonsault but only got a two count! Liger argued with the referee for a moment before grabbing Mistico, lifting him up for a body slam but Mistico floated over and rolled Liger up in a Pat O'Connor but only got the two count. The momentum of Liger kicking out shoved Mistico into the ropes, as Mistico come back Liger grabbed him and rolled him up in a small package for the 1..2...3!



Winner: Jushin "Thunder" Liger via pinfall



( Immediately after the bell both men jumped back to their feet with Mistico trying to jump back on Liger but the referee quickly pulled him back and explaining that he had made the three count. Mistico looked down to the mat, shaking his head in disbelief, before looking back up at Jushin Liger who had extended his hand. Mistico looked at the crowd for a moment before reaching out and accepting the handshake, then pulling Liger in and embracing him in a hug. A few moments later Mistico released the hug and held Liger's hand up in victory, finally turning towards the camera, moments later CIMA ran down the ramp and slid into the ring behind the men and nailed Mistico in the back with a forearm that sent him flying through the ropes to the floor. CIMA quickly nailed Liger with a forearm to the side of the head, knocking him to the mat. CIMA continued the assault, stomping Liger in the back of the head before picking him up and sending him shoulder first into the ring post. Liger fell through the ropes and out to the floor but Mistico slid back into the ring behind CIMA and spun him around, immediately speaking in spanish and pointing to a down Liger then back at CIMA. CIMA raised his hands in the air and motioning with his head that Mistico was right. CIMA backed up and allowed Mistico to pass, but as Mistico walked by him CIMA turned around, pulled Mistico back from the ropes and nailed a back-stabber, sending Mistico rolling in pain. CIMA then rolled out to the floor and grabbed Liger and whipped him into the barricade. CIMA then made his way over to Liger, lifting him onto his shoulders then pressing him over his shoulders an driving him mid-section first across the barricade. Referee's, security, and other personnel made their way ringside and tried to pull CIMA back. He moved back a few steps, as if he was going to listen and leave. Meanwhile Liger slowly began to pull himself up. CIMA pushed the officials out of the way then charged over and connected with a running dropkick to the butt of Jushin Liger that sent him flying face first into the barricade. CIMA got to his feet and posed, pointing and yelling to the crowd before finally making his way to the locker room area as we cut to a commercial. After seeing a brief commercial from our sponsor at "Right Guard" we returned ringside where we are getting ready for our main event! )



7. Prince Devitt and Tye Dillinger vs. Colt Cabana


Dillinger was the first man to make his way to the ring, followed by Prince Devitt who was accompanied by fellow members of The Bullet Club, after posing on the ramp and their pyro exploding, Devitt sent all the members to the back and entered the ring. Finally Colt Cabana's music hits and he makes his way out to a standing ovation from the ground. Once inside the ring he looked to the back, looking as if he was hoping someone would come out to help him before the upcoming match but he was left on his own. The referee signaled for the bell and Cabana was set to start things off with Devitt. Devitt wasted little time charging at Cabana with a big boot but Cabana dodged the boot. Again Devitt charged Cabana, this time with a clothesline but Cabana ducked again but backed into the wrong corner, allowing Tye to grab him from behind. Devitt tried to capitalize on the opportunity and charged at Cabana with a big boot again, Cabana ducked out of the way and Devitt blasted Tye in the face, sending him to the floor. Devitt turned around and charged at Cabana but got caught with two arm drags. Cabana caught Devitt, and went for a big body slam but Devitt slid down the back of Cabana and hooked him in a waist lock but Cabana reversed into a go behind of his own and shoved Devitt back into Tye Dillinger as he was climbing up onto the apron, shoving him back to the floor and allowing Cabana to roll Devitt up in a Pat O'Connor roll up but only got the two count. Unfortunately the momentum of Devitt kicking out sent Cabana towards the ropes at Dillinger was again climbing up on the apron and Cabana caught Dillinger in the mid section with a shoulder sending him back to the floor, but Dillinger landed on his feet and looked furious. Back inside the ring Cabana turned around an ducked a clothesline attempt and hit an atomic drop, then a bulldog. But as Cabana got to his feet, he turned around into a massive lariat from Tye Dillinger. Tye wasted little time grabbing Cabana up off the mat and throwing him into the corner and connecting with several forearms to the face and shoulder thrusts to the mid section until the referee could finally pull him back and demand he return to his corner before his team was disqualified. During the distraction Cabana had dropped down in the corner, allowing Devitt to get to his feet and deliver a running dropkick to the face. Devitt pulled Cabana out of the corner and went for the cover but only got the two count. Devitt made the tag to Tye, and both men began to spend the next several minutes picking apart Cabana, having their way with him, seeming to enjoy picking each body part apart, slowly. Finally on a double clothesline attempt, Cabana was able to duck both men and connect with springboard moonsault, taking out Devitt, Dillinger, and clipping the referee in the head, taking him out. The crowd began to get behind Cabana with a "Colt, Colt, Colt" chant. As the three competitors began to make their way to their feet the lights inside the arena went out. It didn't take long for them to come back on though and as they did, Cabana is still laid out in the corner, as Devitt and Dillinger get to their feet and look a bit confused about the lights going out. As they turn their attention to Cabana, Cabana looks at them scared, before letting a sly grin peak through. Cabana then points towards the men and finally yells for them to turn around. As they do the camera pans around to see AJ Styles standing on the ring apron. He immediately springboards to the top rope and flies off, catching Devitt and Dillinger with a double clothesline. All three men immediately get to their feet, AJ catches Dillinger with a spinning wheel kick. Then turns his attention to Devitt who begins yelling to AJ to think about his options here and throws up the trademark cliq hand gesture. AJ looks at the crowd for a moment, then over to Cabana, who has pulled himself up by the ropes, standing against the ropes, almost looking as if he's between Devitt and AJ. AJ then says he's sorry before throwing up the hand gesture as well. The crowd boos as Devitt and AJ turn their attention to Colt but AJ stops, spins Devitt around, boots him in the gut and nails him with The Styles Clash. Cabana then charges across the ring and nails Tye Dillinger with a clothesline, sending him over the top rope to the floor. Meanwhile AJ Styles, grabs the referee, shaking him a bit, then rolls out to the floor and grabs his title. Cabana grabs Devitt, and lifts him up, connecting with the Colt45 and makes the cover as the referee pulls himself towards the two men and makes the count...1...2...3!



Winner: Colt Cabana via pinfall



( After the referee calls for the bell AJ Styles slides into the ring and raises his friends hand in victory. Cabana and Styles exchange high fives for a moment before taking opposing turnbuckles and posing as the crowd cheers and Tye Dillinger begins to pull himself together on the outside. Dillinger looks furious as the pay per view comes to an end! )

Attendance: 807

?

( The show kicks off with a nice video package highlighting the history of the IWA, concluding with words from Jim Cornette at WrestleFest, where he promised he would turn IWA into what his vision of professional wrestling was if it was the last thing he did. The pyro inside the arena then exploded and we went live, ringside where we were joined by our commentators for the night, Dave Prazak and Mike McKean. They put over the night's matches and sent us to the ring for our first contest. )

1. Serena Deeb vs. Sara Del Ray

The referee called for the opening bell and both women circled each other for a moment before Deeb charged in for the lock up, Del Ray quickly ducked and grabbed her in a waist lock before transitioning into the head lock. Deeb pulled at the hands of Del Ray, trying to break free but had no luck, finally after several forearms to the ribs of Del Ray, Deeb shoved her off into the ropes. Del Ray charged back but was taken down by a drop toe hold by Deeb, who then transitioned over into the front face lock. Both ladies work back to their feet, Del Ray pushes Deeb back into the ropes, the referee stepped between the two ordering Deeb to release the hold and for Del Ray to back up. Before Del Ray can do so, Deeb attempts to boot her in the gut but Del Ray catches the foot, throws it down and connects with a hard forearm to the face then whips her into the ropes and takes Deeb down with a clothesline, and a side walk slam but only gets a two count. Del Ray lifts Deeb to her feet but Deeb cuts her off by raking her eyes then catching her with a neck breaker. Deeb went for the cover but barely got a two count. Deeb got to her feet and connected with a leg drop but again only got a two count. Deeb continued to work over the neck region of Del Ray for the next minute or so before hitting another neckbreaker but landing on her knees, arching the neck and back of Del Ray across her own shoulder and back trying to get a submission victory. Del Ray looked as if she may tap numerous times but fought the urge, and finally got the strength from the crowd to fight back. Del Ray powered her way back to her feet, throwing elbows to the back of Deeb, and spinning herself around facing Deeb, where she connected with a boot to the gut then whipped Deeb into the ropes but Deeb ducked below the clothesline attempt and leaped onto the shoulders of Del Ray, attempting a crucifix pin but Del Ray over powered Deeb and tossed her onto her shoulder's and connected with a samoan drop. Del Ray went for the cover but only got the two count. Del Ray lifted Deeb to her feet and connected with a chop, then whipped her into the corner. Del Ray charged in with a big boot attempt but Deeb ducked out of the way and rolled Del Ray up in a backslide for 1..2..NO! Del Ray rolled through, holding onto the arms of Deeb and lifting her off the mat and into the Royal Butterfly. Del Ray hopped around the ring, holding onto Deeb for a moment before swinging her through in the suplex, grabbing the leg and getting the 1..2..3!

Winner: Sara Del Ray via pinfall

( After the match the referee raised Sara Del Ray's hand in victory for a moment before she went to the second turnbuckle and raised her arms in victory. After taking in the cheers from the crowd for a moment she exited the ring as we went to our first commercial break from our sponsors at "Right Guard". When we returned we were greeted by the theme music of Jim Cornette, who was making his way out onto the stage. The crowd booed heavily as he made his way down the ramp and into the ring with a smile on his face. Cornette wasted little time, walking across the ring and grabbing a microphone from the ringside attendant, then heading back to the center of the ring. )

"Jim Cornette": I told you people last month at WrestleFest I had a vision and I was going to see through that it happened even if it was the last thing I did. Now here we stand, live, on FOX! Regardless of what those suit wearing, office pricks back in Chicago say, I am the reason we are on national television and I will be the reason we stay here and continue to grow even bigger. Well, I am the reason we are here, and myself and my colleagues. The men that see my vision, the men that know what true professional wrestling is. Now I'm not going to expose the names of those men at this moment, other than my right hand man Tye Dillinger. But I do want to address a few people who I thought at one point knew what was best. By now you all know my feelings towards Colt Cabana and AJ Styles, but last week I had a sure fireproof plan to eliminate part of my problems. I put my trust in Prince Devitt and his Bullet Club. He made a promise, and he let me down. I held my end of the bargain, I canceled AJ Styles plane ticket, but still, Devitt could not get the job done. I heard it all during the week, "AJ surprised him", "AJ was supposed to be home", "Dillinger didn't have my back". That last one was my personal favorite. How do you have nine thousand members of a club, but it's the fault of a person who isn't even apart of the group? Let's get something straight Devitt you can put the blame on anyone you want, but to have the nerve to try to blame my man, the greatest professional athlete to ever grace the squared circle, Tye Dillinger is ridiculous. The fact is you dropped the ball, you let me down, and now, now you're going to pay the price just like Colt Cabana and AJ Styles! Now tonight, I've given Tye Dillinger a much needed break, so he can rest up and prepare to destroy AJ Styles once and for all this Sunday inside a steel cage, but I'm still going to make sure AJ gets what's coming to him for sticking his nose in my business again. So coming up next, your IWA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles is going to be in one on one action against a member of The Bullet Club, Karl Anderson! Quiet honestly I don't care who wins as long as both of you beat each other senseless. If I'm lucky neither one of you will be able to walk out of the ring on your own power. Now, before we get to the main event, I've been told Homicide has issued a open challenge to Mick Foley, Foley has accepted, he has Homicide an opponent but after that, oh, now this is my baby here. The Bullet Club may have the World Tag Team Titles in their possession right now, but after tonight that may be up in the air when The Young Bucks put those titles on the line against The Inner City Machine Guns! I promise this is going to be a night to remember folks, and I can also promise you I will be the last one laughing!

( With that said, Cornette dropped the microphone and exited the ring with a huge smile on his face. As he reached the top of the ramp Tye Dillinger appeared in a suit and tie. He and Cornette exchanged hand shakes, then raised their arms high in the air, as if they had just won a war. The show then went to a quick commercial break from our sponsors at "Coors Light". When we returned we were set for our next match of the evening. )

2. IWA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles © vs. Karl Anderson

Both men started things off with a lock up before Anderson took the arm of AJ, wrenching at it. AJ rolled through, and attempted to nip up but Anderson grabbed him by his hair and pulled him back down and driving the knee into the bicep. Anderson holds onto the arm as AJ wiggles the arm free from under the knee. AJ again rolls through, and nips up, but as Anderson pulls the hair, AJ back flips and sends Anderson rolling to the opposing side of the ring with an arm drag. Anderson charges at AJ but AJ is able to leap frog him, then drop down. Anderson steps over and as he hits the ropes AJ catches him with the picture perfect dropkick to send Anderson rolling out of the ring to shake the cob webs. Anderson looks back up to see AJ charging across the ring and he ducks down. AJ see's this in time to grab the ropes and slingshot himself onto the ring apron. Anderson raises up but gets caught with a back kick to the head that sends him staggering down the side of the ring. AJ runs down the ring apron and leap off, catching Anderson with a hurricanrana on the floor. AJ quickly gets back up and high fives a few fans in the front row before rolling back into the ring and rolling right back out, making the referee restart the ten count. AJ walks back over to Anderson and attempts to lift him to his feet, but Anderson grabs him by the front of his tights and pulls him head first into the steel steps. Anderson recovers and grabs AJ and rolls him back into the ring and follows him in, quickly going for the cover but only gets a two count. Anderson begins to pick apart the back of AJ, delivering several elbows and knee's to the back before locking in a bow and arrow. Styles eventually works free, turning himself over onto the chest of Anderson but only getting a one count. Both men get to their feet, AJ charges at Anderson, but Anderson ducks a clothesline and catches AJ in a back-breaker. Anderson continued to work over the back for the next couple minutes but when he went for another back breaker, AJ was able to use his momentum to back flip out, then duck a clothesline and connect with a pele kick. Both men made it to their feet as the referee reached the count of 8. AJ charged in, taking Anderson down with two clotheslines, then ducking a clothesline attempt by Anderson and springboarding to the middle ropes and connecting with the Phenomenon. AJ went for the cover but only got a two count. AJ lifted Anderson back to his feet and attempted to whip him into the corner but Anderson reversed and sent AJ in. Anderson charged in but got caught in the chain with a boot. AJ then slid through the ropes, to the apron and caught Anderson with a forearm to the face. AJ then tried to springboard to the top rope but Anderson leaped up and caught AJ with a big boot to the face and chest area that sent him crashing across the top turnbuckle. Anderson then went to the top rope and delivered a superplex. Both men held their backs in pain, but Anderson slowly worked him way over and went for the cover. AJ barely got his shoulder up before the three. Anderson argued with the referee for a moment before getting back to his feet and pulling AJ up with him. Anderson caught AJ with a knee to the gut and lifted him up for a powerbomb but AJ countered with a hurricanrana into a pin, but before the referee could begin to make the count, AJ back rolled and grabbed the legs of Anderson and pulled him up and connected with The Styles Clash for the 1...2...3!

Winner: IWA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles via pinfall

( After the referee called for the bell, he handed AJ Styles his World Championship and raised his hand in victory. We then cut to a commercial from our sponsors at K-Y. As the show comes back from the commercial break we go back ringside for our next match of the evening. )

3. Homicide vs. Spike Dudley w/ Mick Foley

Homicide wasted little time getting this one started, jumping Spike as soon as the referee called for the opening bell. Homicide nailed Spike with repeated forearms to the face before whipping him into the corner and charging in with a running forearm to the face that sent him down in the corner. Homicide then hit the ropes and charged back with a flying knee to the face. Homicide then looked down at Foley, and spit in his direction. Foley tried to climb up on the ring apron but the referee quickly got to him, demanding he stay in the corner or he would be sent to the back. Meanwhile, Homicide yelled for Foley to be a man and get into the ring with him. This allowed Spike enough time to crawl out of the corner and position himself behind Homicide. Finally Spike tapped Homicide on the shoulder and as he turned around Spike started lighting him up with rights and lefts, then forearms to the face that sent Homicide backing into the ropes. Spike attempted to whip Homicide into the ropes but he reversed, Spike ducked a clothesline attempt and caught Homicide with a head-scissors take over that sent Homicide rolling into the corner. Spike then ran over and leaped onto the chest of Homicide, delivering the repeated double foot stomps. Spike finally hopped off the chest of Homicide and pounded on his chest as the crowd cheered him on. As Homicide made his way back to his feet Spike went for a boot to the gut but Homicide caught the boot, spun him around and caught him with a back kick to the gut. Homicide pulled the elbow pad down, signaling for the lariat. Homicide hit the ropes and attempted the lariat but Spike ducked. Homicide turned around and Spike grabbed him for the Dudley Dog, but Homicide escaped and lifted Spike up on his back for the Cop Killa. Spike kicked his legs, eventually working himself free, and landing on his feet. Homicide turned around and got caught with the boot to the gut, Spike hooked him once again for the Dudley Dog and charged towards the corner, running up the corner, but Homicide pushed him over his head. Spike landed on his feet but Homicide quickly turned around connecting with the lariat, turning Spike inside out. Homicide didn't go for the cover, instead he jerked Spike up off the mat and nailed him with the Cop Killa. Spike immediately tried to grab his neck, and was in obvious pain. The referee tried to check on him but Homicide pushed him a way and put his foot on his chest, demanding the referee count. Reluctantly he did so and got the 1...2...3.

Winner: Homicide via pinfall

( After the match the referee again tried to check on Spike Dudley but Homicide pushed him out of the way and picked Spike up off the mat. He held onto him for a moment, pointing at Foley, yelling this one is for him. Homicide lifted Spike back up onto his back, getting ready to go for another Cop Killa, but before he could deliver the move, Mick Foley rolled into the ring. Homicide dropped Spike and rolled out of the ring before Foley could get his hands on him. Homicide backed up the ramp laughing as the referee and Mick Foley attempted to once again check on Spike Dudley. After a few moments we cut to the announcer's table, where color commentator, Dave Prazak is standing by to announce some of the matches we will see at this Sunday's "Against All Odds" event in St. Louis Missouri! )

4. IWA World Tag Team Title Match

The Young Bucks©'s vs. The Inner City Machine Guns

Both teams got the pre-match introductions while in the ring, but when The Young Bucks hit their trademark pose down, The Inner City Machine Guns mocked them with their version of The Young Bucks pose. This infuriated The Bucks, who charged at The Machine Guns but Swann and Ricochet ducked the punch attempts and started lighting up the Bucks with forearms then whipped both men off and took them down with back drops. Both Young Bucks rolled out of the ring and the Machine Guns responded with simultaneous tope dives with Ricochet landing on his feet. Ricochet high fived a couple fans and helped Swann back to his feet. Both men then grabbed Matt Jackson and rolled him inside, Ricochet soon followed, with Swann returning to his teams corner. Matt Jackson rolled across the ring and got to his feet, charging at Ricochet as he stood up but Ricochet caught him with a quick arm drag, both men made it to their feet at the same time with Ricochet charging towards Matt Jackson, Matt caught him with an arm drag, then went for a hip-toss but Ricochet landed on his feet. Ricochet went for a clothesline but Matt Jackson ducked, attempted a superkick but Ricochet caught the foot, spun Matt around and caught him with a back-stabber. Ricochet went for the cover but Nick pulled him off before the three. Nick lifted Ricochet up off the mat and connected with a forearm to the face before attempting to whip Ricochet into the ropes but Ricochet reversed sending Nick in. Nick hooked the ropes and caught Ricochet with a boot to the face, and used his momentum to send himself up and over to the ring apron. Meanwhile Matt got to his feet and grabbed the legs out from under Ricochet and lifted him up in a wheel-barrow and Nick was able to slingshot himself back inside, catching Ricochet in an x-factor. Matt went for the cover but only got a two count. He got to his feet and quickly pulled Ricochet to his feet and made the tag to Nick. Nick and Matt whipped Ricochet into the ropes, but Swann made the blind tag. The Young Bucks went for a double clothesline but Ricochet rolled underneath them and Swann caught The Bucks with a double crossbody. Nick and Matt immediately got back to their feet and turned around into dropkicks from the Machine Guns that sent Matt rolling out of the ring. Back inside the ring the Machine Guns grabbed Nick and whipped him into the corner. Swann charged in with a diving shoulder block to the mid-section and Ricochet dove over him with a dropkick to the face. Ricochet quickly rolled out to the apron, as Swann pulled Nick out of the corner and hit a northern lights suplex for a two count. Both men got to their feet, Swann caught Nick with a boot to the gut and whipped him into the ropes and leaped up, attempting a hurricanrana but Nick caught him with a powerbomb! Nick grabbed the leg of Swann and pulled him to his corner and made the tag back to brother Matt. They lifted Swann to his feet, then whipped him into the ropes, as Swann come off the ropes Nick grabbed him by the head and sent him mid-section first across his knee and Matt followed up by hitting the ropes and catching Swann with a spinning neck breaker, sending him into a back breaker across Nick's knee. Nick went for the cover but Ricochet quickly entered the ring and pulled Nick off of Swann. The referee immediately grabbed Ricochet and tried to push him back into his corner, meanwhile Nick taunted Ricochet before turning around to see Swann kip up out of no where and catch him with a hurricanrana that sent him rolling to the floor. Matt quickly entered the ring before the referee could get Ricochet back on the apron grabbed Swann from behind, locking in a sleeper hold and pulling him to the center of the ring, cinching in the hold and eventually wearing down Swann. The referee lifts the right arm of Swann into the air and it drops down. He checks it a second time, and again the arm drops down. Swann looks lifeless as the referee raises the arm for a third time and the arm almost drops for the third time but Swann pulls the strength out of nowhere to keep the arm from dropping completely. The crowd gets behind him as he slowly begins to work his way back to his feet, slowly making a circle, and begins to throw elbows to the mid-section of Matt. Swann then speeds up with the circling, bringing Matt with him. Swann then ducked down, and it sent Matt throat first into the top rope. Matt immediately turned around, bending over clutching at his throat. Swann followed with a fame-asser and slowly made his way to his corner. Before he could reach his partner both Young Bucks grabbed Swann by the legs but Swann broke free, rolling into his corner and making the tag to Ricochet. Ricochet leaped over the top into the ring and ran towards both Young Bucks, rolling under a double clothesline attempt then pausing mid roll, and rolling backwards to his feet, jumping backwards, and catching both Young Bucks with a double ace cutter. Swann joined his partner in the center of the ring, both looking at a member of the Young Bucks, they began jumping up and down and at the same time Swann hit a standing 450 splash and Ricochet connected with a standing shooting star press. Ricochet went for the cover but Matt Jackson kicked out at two! Ricochet lifted him to his feet connecting with multiple forearms to the face then whipped him into the ropes, Ricochet caught him, lifting him up for a bodyslam but Matt floated over and out of nowhere Swann leaped up onto his shoulder's and took Matt down with a reverse hurricanrana. Ricochet turned around to help his partner up but Nick Jackson jumped out of the corner and took Ricochet down with a superkick. Swann and Nick then charged at each other and took each other down when they both attempted crossbody's. Ricochet and Matt Jackson were the first men to make it to their feet and they began trading forearms. Ricochet finally fired up catching Matt with a spinning back fist, then attempted to hit the ropes but as he turned around Matt was there to meet him with an elbow to the face. Matt helped his brother back to his feet and they whipped Ricochet into the ropes, caught him with a double hip toss, and both Bucks hit double handspring back flips then nailed Ricochet in the face with superkicks. Swann charged at them but stopped short, ducking down, holding his face as the Bucks looked to attempt double superkicks to him but they stopped short as well. As Swann looked up he was caught with double back kicks to the gut. Nick then grabbed Swann for a back-breaker but lifted him on up into a tombstone position as Matt leaped to the apron then springboarded to the top rope and back inside catching Swann with the piledriver/tombstone piledriver combination. The Young Bucks then turned their attention to Ricochet, lifting him up off the mat. Both men then signaled it was time for "More Bang For Your Buck". Nick lifted Ricochet up on his shoulder's and connected with the rolling fireman's carry, but as Nick springboarded to the top rope for the moonsault the lights inside the arena went out. A moment later the pyramid with one eye appeared on the titan tron and music began to play as the words "The Ascension" flashed on the titan tron. The crowd seemed shocked as did the Young Bucks. Nick rejoined his brother in the center of the ring, staring at the stage, waiting for "The Ascension" to appear but after a couple minutes of the music playing no one appeared. The music eventually stopped, but before the lights in the arena could fully come back on two figures appeared to come from under the ring and slide in behind The Young Bucks. As the lights come back on Konnor and Viktor were standing behind The Young Bucks, seething, ready for both men to turn around. As they did The Ascension leaped on The Young Bucks like a pack of wolves. The referee immediately called for the bell, throwing the match out. Konnor immediately caught the referee with a big boot to the face.

Winners: No Contest via Interference

( After the match The Ascension continued the assault on the Bucks until Ricochet began making his way to his feet. The Ascension quickly turned their attention to him, charging over and double clotheslining him over the top rope to the floor. They then turned around but Swann was to his feet and met both men with punches, kicks, and forearms for a moment until Konnor was obviously frustrated with Swann's attempt to over take them. Konnor caught a kick and elbowed the knee, Swann immediately clutched the knee, screaming in pain. The Ascension then military pressed Swann over their heads and tossed him over the top rope onto Ricochet. Konnor then lifted Matt Jackson up off the mat and began to deliver back breaker, after back breaker as Viktor made his way to the top rope. Konnor brought Matt to the corner and connected with one more back breaker, holding him in place as Viktor leaped off the top rope and delivered an elbow drop across the chest. Konnor dropped Matt and turned his attention to Nick. Grabbing him up off the mat and attempting to lift him up for a body slam but Nick went up and over, sliding down the back but Konnor immediately moved out of the way and Viktor turned Nick inside out with a clothesline. The Ascension then back into opposing corners, screaming for Nick to get up as they held onto the ropes, looking up towards the sky. Then, as Nick reached his feet, both men charged him, taking him apart with "The Fall of Man", the running leg sweep, European uppercut combination. The Ascension looked around at the carnage they had created for a moment, then headed to the turnbuckles, raising their arms in success. As their music hit they looked towards the stage and Jim Cornette, along with Tye Dillinger made their way out, smiling and clapping as the fans shocked reaction quickly turned into boo's, realizing Jim Cornette was behind this all along. The Ascension exited the ring and made their way to the top of the stage as some fans threw soda cups and popcorn at them. Once to the top of the stage Jim Cornette and Tye Dillinger raised The Ascension's arms in the air, bringing the show to a close. )

1. Sara Del Ray vs. Mia Yim

Yim started things off by throwing rap kicks to the legs of Del Ray, avoiding any kind of offense from Del Ray and connecting with more kicks. Finally Del Ray caught one of the kicks and connected with a kick of her own that sent Yim down. Del Ray grabbed the leg she had just kicked and rolled Yim backwards and up to her feet, whipped her into the ropes and attempted a clothesline but Yim ducked and dropkicked the leg out from under Del Ray. Yim quickly went to work on the injured leg of Del Ray, lifting the leg up and driving it back into the ring, crushing it between her foot and the ring. Yim then locked in a single leg boston crab, looking to get the submission victory, but Del Ray made it to the ropes. Yim released the hold and pulled Del Ray away from the ropes and went back to the injured leg but Del Ray shoved Yim back. Yim made her way back towards Del Ray but Del Ray used her feet to shove Yim into the air, over her and the top rope to the apron.

Main Show ---

 

( The show kicks off with a recap of the ongoing rivalry between Jushin Liger and CIMA, then moving onto Homicide's quest to get Mick Foley in the ring with him, and overcoming every opponent Foley has put in his path. Finally a recap of the brewing rivalry between Jim Cornette's corporate army, AJ Styles, Colt Cabana, The Bullet Club, and finishing with the debut of The Ascension and the impact they made. The pyro inside the arena exploded and we went ringside where Colt Cabana's music hit and he made his way out onto the stage dancing before making his way down the ramp and into the ring. Once inside the ring, Cabana strutted across the ring until he was cut off by the music of Jim Cornette. Cornette made his way out onto the stage to a huge chorus of boo's. The music finally cut out and Jim Cornette picked up a nearby microphone off the stage and looked around to the crowd for a moment, after they began to quieten down he lifted the microphone up and began to speak. )

 

"Jim Cornette": Now I know this is going to be a huge night for myself and my corporate army but I have a couple things I have to get off my chest before I introduce your special opponent for tonight Colt. So if you people will bear with me, and quiet frankly, whether or not you want to, your going to have to! First, a little IWA business I have to get out of the way, due to a conflict of interest between the IWA and Dragon Gate USA, the Open the Freedom Gate Championship will be defended for the last time tonight. Now, Johnny Gargano's open challenge has been accepted, by more than one man in fact, and after the winner of the match has been declared, he will be awarded IWA's newest championship, the No Limit's Championship! Now onto even bigger news, after The Ascension's impressive debut this past Tuesday night, I have no choice but to make tonight's IWA World Tag Team Championship Match a Triple Threat Match with The Young Bucks not only defending against The Inner City Machine Guns but The Ascension! I told you people all along, I had more people that supported by vision of true professional wrestling and those were just two, two of the many people, but there are more, and Colt Cabana, it's time for you to meet the two newest members of my corporate army, one is the most successful female performer's of all time, and the wife and manager of your opponent, ladies and gentlemen, get on your feet and welcome my newest acquisition, one of the most in demand pro wrestlers of the last few years and the newest member of the IWA roster......Michael Bennett and his wife, the beautiful Maria Kanellis!

 

( The music hits, and the crowd doesn't even give them a chance to appear on the stage before erupting in boos. After a moment Michael Bennett and Maria appear on the stage, with Michael shaking the hand of Cornette and Maria sharing a hug with Cornette before joining hands with Bennett and both of them making their way down the ramp and eventually into the ring. Cabana looks on, first surprised, then getting a determined look on his face. A referee makes his way down the ramp and we are officially ready for first contest of the pay per view! )

 

2. Colt Cabana vs. Michael Bennett w/ Maria Kanellis

Both men locked up at the sound of the bell with Bennett quickly taking the arm of Cabana. Both men went back and forth in a nice exchange of chain wrestling until Bennett quickly went to cheating in an attempt to retain control, pulling Cabana back down to the mat by his hair every time he would attempt to nip up. Finally Cabana rolled back, taking control of Bennett's arm on his way back to his feet, Cabana twisted at the arm and transitioned behind the back of Bennett and came around with an arm drag, and held on, slid around behind Bennett and rolled him up in a crucifix but only got the two count. Both men got to their feet where Cabana caught Bennett with a boot to the gut and locked in the head lock, Bennett shoved Cabana into the ropes but as he hit them, Maria grabbed Cabana's foot. Cabana immediately stopped and turned around, grabbing Maria by the hair and pulled her up onto the apron. Bennett immediately nailed Cabana in the back with a forearm and connected with a half and half suplex, dropping Cabana on the back of his head. Bennett went for the cover but only got the two count. Bennett immediately went to work on the neck of Cabana, picking it apart with neck breaker after neck breaker and eventually tried getting the submission victory with a camel clutch but Cabana wouldn't quit, using everything he had to fight back, working his way to the ropes. Once he grabbed the ropes the referee initiated the five count, Bennett refused to break the hold so Cabana dug deep to pull himself up to his feet with Bennett on his back, Cabana turned around and ran towards the center of the ring, and leaped up in the air and crushed Bennett between the mat and himself, causing Bennett to release the hold. The referee then began the ten count and made it to the count of 7 before both men made it to their feet. Bennett made his way towards Cabana and attempted a clothesline but Cabana ducked and caught Bennett with multiple lefts, before rolling it up and connecting with the bionic elbow that sent Bennett down. Bennett quickly got back to his feet but was taken right back down with two clotheslines then a powerslam but again Cabana only got the two count. Cabana went to the top rope and attempted a missile dropkick but Bennett moved out of the way, sending Cabana crashing to the mat. Bennett immediately grabbed Cabana by the head and connected with a DDT but only got the two count. Bennett got to his feet and pulled Cabana in for a piledriver but Cabana fought it, Bennett connected with several forearms to the back and lifted Cabana up for the piledriver, but again Cabana fought it, Bennett once again connected with more forearms to the back of Cabana before trying to lift him back up but Cabana countered with a back drop. Bennett got to his feet and turned around into a boot to the gut from Cabana, who then lifted Bennett up for Colt45 and connected. Cabana went for the cover 1...2...NO! Maria placed Bennett's boot on the bottom rope. The referee didn't see Maria's involvement but caught Bennett's boot on the ropes and he explained it to Cabana. Cabana knew what had happened though and turned his attention to Maria, grabbing her by the hair and again pulling her up on the ring apron. This time he sensed Bennett coming at him and moved at the last second, but Bennett put the brakes on, slowly down before he hit Maria. Bennett then turned around in time to duck a clothesline attempt from Cabana, Cabana immediately turned around and was caught with a rock bottom across the knee of Bennett, and he immediately applied the Anaconda Vice, wrenching at the arm and neck, Cabana had no where to go and eventually had no choice but to tap out to give Bennett the submission victory!

 

Winner: Michael Bennett w/ Maria Kanellis via submission

 

( After the referee called for the bell Bennett rolled out of the ring and joined Maria on the ramp, they embraced for a moment, exchanging a kiss, before Maria let go and raised Michael Bennett's hand in victory! We then went to a commercial from our sponsors at "Just For Men" before returning to the ring for our next contest of the evening. )

 

3. Open the Freedom Gate/No Limit's Championship Match

Fatal Four Way Match

Johnny Gargano© vs. Eddie Edwards vs. Low Ki vs. John Morrison

Gargano looked shocked at each man made his way out to the ring, obviously not expecting this sort of competition. As the referee signaled for the bell all three men jumped on Gargano, making quick work of him and tossing him to the floor. As the match progressed all four men began showcasing more and more of their high flying and hard hitting abilities with one moment of the match consisting of Gargano hitting a suicide dive onto Edwards, Low Ki following up with a springboard to the top rope and a crossbody onto Edwards and Gargano, and finally Morrison finishing things off with a springboard shooting star press onto the other three men. The final minutes were a shoot out with Edwards hitting Gargano with the running double knees to the chest in the corner, then pulling him out, lifting him up in a powerbomb but dropping him into a lung-blower. Edwards went for the cover but Low-Ki come out of no-where with a springboard double stomp to break up the count at two! Low Ki got to his feet and turned around into a hurricanrana from Morrison that sent him rolling out of the ring. Morrison immediately got to his feet and connected with a standing shooting star press onto the back of Edwards. Morrison went for the cover but Gargano broke up the pin at two. Gargano attempted to lift Morrison to his feet but Morrison broke free and caught Gargano with a step up enzijiri kick that sent him staggering back into the ropes. Morrison turned around and began making his way towards Low Ki who was on the ring apron.

Winner: And Still No Limit's Champion, Johnny Gargano© via pinfall!

 

( After the match the referee hands Johnny Gargano his new No Limit's Championship and he held it high in the air for a moment before going to one of the corner's and climbing to the middle turnbuckle and raising the championship in the air one more time. The camera then cut backstage where we are joined by Dave Prazak, who is standing by with Mick Foley. )

 

"Dave Prazak": Ladies and Gentlemen I'm standing here with the hardcore legend himself, Mick Foley. Mick, coming up next Homicide is going one on one with fellow legend and your best friend, Terry Funk in a Falls Count Anywhere match. After the actions of Homicide this past Tuesday night on IWA Slam, are you concerned at all at what he is could possibly do to your friend?

 

"Mick Foley": Am I concerned? Your damn right I'm concerned! Homicide has been obsessed with getting me into the ring and he proved this past Tuesday night with Spike Dudley just how far he is willing to take it. Well tonight is the night, the biggest match of Homicide's career to date if you will, because if he can somehow pull out a victory over Terry Funk, then I will finally stand in the middle of that ring and accept his challenge. Now I can worry all night about the well being of Terry Funk but here's a little inside scoop. When Terry Funk arrived this afternoon he come to me, he looked in better shape than I have seen him in years, and he assured me the only person we need to worry about tonight is Homicide because Funk came here to St. Louis Missouri for one of the biggest matches of his career. So yeah I'm worried, but now that I think more about it, I'm not worried about Terry Funk, I'm worried about Homicide, because no matter how tough Homicide may be, he has never stepped into the ring with a man like Terry Funk. And I look forward to watching Funk turn Homicide from a boy into a man right here tonight, live, up close, and in person, next! Have a nice day!

 

( With that said Mick Foley walked off as Homicide's music began to play inside the arena. The camera went back ringside where we are ready for our next match of the evening. )

When the show returned the ring was being cleaned from all the blood so we could get ready for our next match of the evening. )

Winner: AND Still IWA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles via pinfall

 

( Once the referee called for the bell he checked on AJ Styles, who was stilling lying in the ring holding his ribs. After a moment the referee exited the ring and grabbed the World Championship, on his way back around the ring Jim Cornette got in his face, arguing with him about what had just happened. The referee tried to go around Cornette but Cornette grabbed the referee by the arm and spun him around. The referee explained to Cornette what happened while he was down on the floor but before he could finish Michael Bennett come up from behind, grabbed the referee by the back of the shirt and sent him into the barricade.

Bennett and Cornette went over and helped a bloody and beaten Tye Dillinger to his feet and they all surrounded a bloody AJ Styles, who was still lying on the mat. As AJ pulled himself to his knees the lights inside the arena shut off. After about 20 seconds the lights come back on, Cornette, Bennett and Dillinger were facing the ramp, AJ Styles was sitting behind them in the corner. Finally Cornette and his crew turned around to face AJ Styles but caught Prince Devitt standing on top of the cage behind them, using their own tactic against them. The crowd come unglued as Devitt, leaped off the top of the cage and took all three men down with a crossbody. Devitt got to his feet and looked at AJ, who looked stunned. Devitt then grabbed the IWA World Championship off the mat then walked over and extended a hand to AJ. After a moment AJ reluctantly accepted the hand. Devitt helped him to his feet and handed him the World Championship then lifted his hand in the air. Out of no where Devitt shoved AJ's arm down, slightly spinning him in the process and hooking him and connecting with the reverse Bloody Sunday! Prince Devitt then got to his feet and looked down on the bloody AJ Styles before picking up his World Heavyweight Championship and raising it in the air as the fans booed.

( The show kicks off with a recap from Sunday's "Against All Odds" Pay Per View, including The Ascension winning the World Tag Team Titles, Homicide's victory over Terry Funk, with Mick Foley screaming Homicide will finally get his match with him at next month's pay per view event, and the incredible World Heavyweight Championship match that was held inside the steel cage, including the aftermath that saw Prince Devitt save AJ Styles from Michael Bennett, Tye Dillinger, and Jim Cornette, just to turn his back on AJ Styles and proclaim that the World Heavyweight Championship will be his! The pyro inside the arena then explodes and we go ringside where we hear AJ Styles music begin to play. The crowd erupts as he walks out onto the stage with his championship over his shoulder. AJ limps down the ramp and enters the ring, where he grabs a microphone and prepares to speak. )

 

"AJ Styles": I don't plan on taking a lot of your time tonight but there is something I do need to get off of my chest. This past Sunday night was one of the most grueling matches of my career, if that wasn't enough, the aftermath was one of the worst experiences of my life. Not only did I have to deal with Tye Dillinger, but Cornette and his new flavor of the month Michael Bennett decided to join in, then, just when I thought I could start to trust Prince Devitt, once again he showed where his colors lied and he joined in on the worst beating I've taken in my life. Last night was proof that as long as I'm champion, the only people I can truly trust, are you, the fans! Now I know it sounds like I've just come out here tonight to complain, but that's exactly the opposite of what I've come here to do tonight. You see my doctors have told me I won't be cleared to wrestle again for atleast four weeks, but the doctor didn't say anything about a fight. So I'm issuing the challenge right now, Tye Dillinger, Michael Bennett, Prince Devitt, and anyone else in that locker room that wants a shot at me or this World Heavyweight Championship, the line in the sand has been drawn, if you want a shot, come get you some!

 

( AJ immediately tosses the microphone out of the ring and lays the World Championship in the middle of the ring. It doesn't take too long for Tye Dillinger's music to hit. He makes his way out onto the stage, along with Michael Bennett and Maria Kanellis, they begin making their way down the ramp towards the ring. Bennett stops mid ways down the ramp and shares a kiss with Maria and tells her to stay put. Bennett and Dillinger begin to circle around the ring, AJ waves the on into the ring. After a moment Bennett hops up onto the ring apron. AJ rushes over to hit him but Bennett drops off the apron, this distracted AJ long enough for Tye to slid in behind AJ. Tye spins AJ around and goes for a punch but AJ blocks it and nails Tye with a forearm that sends him to the mat, Tye gets right back up and takes another. Bennett slides in but gets take down with a back elbow. AJ then nails Tye with a clothesline, and Bennett with another back elbow. AJ shoots Tye into the ropes and attempts a back drop but Tye holds onto the ropes, then kicks AJ in the shoulder.

The camera cuts to the crowd where Kevin Steen is shown making his way over the barricade. He slides into the ring as Tye and Bennett turned their attention to him. Bennett charges at Steen, attempting a clothesline but he ducks, Bennett stopped, turned around, and Steen pressed him into the air catching him with the pop up powerbomb.

Tye and Maria grabbed the arm of Michael Bennett and pulled him outside the ring and helped him to his feet. Both men and Maria made their way to the top of the ramp as Steen stood in the center of the ring motioning for them to come back to the ring for more. Once they disappeared behind the curtain Steen slowly turned his head towards AJ Styles who was pulling himself up in the corner. Steen turned and charged across the ring, delivering a big boot to the side of the head of AJ. Steen then pulled AJ out of the corner, to the center of the ring and connected with the package piledriver. Steen got to his feet and looked down at the fallen AJ Styles, then to the World Heavyweight Championship, then back at AJ Styles, then motioned to his waist, saying that the World Championship is his. Steen then exited the ring and made his way up the ramp as referee's and officials made their way to the ring to check on an injured AJ Styles. )

 

( Backstage Tye Dillinger, Michael Bennett, and Maria Kanellis were shown entering Jim Cornette's office, before anyone could speak a knock was heard at the door, the door then opened and Dave Prazak entered with a microphone in hand and began to speak. )

 

"Dave Prazak": Mr. Cornette, I was wondering if I could get a word with you on what we just saw transpire in the ring?

 

"Jim Cornette": Prazak, how about you answer a question for me. What do you think when people barge into your office without being invited in?....Nah just shut your mouth, we all know you don't have a personal office so you don't know what that would be like. Just like you, or anyone else can imagine what is going through the mind of AJ Styles right now, except for me. You see, this is exactly what I wanted, AJ Styles is losing his mind right now. He is finally seeing that you can't trust anyone in this business, especially when you're on top of the mountain as the World Champion. Now Kevin Steen was a surprise, I didn't expect to see him coming through the crowd and sticking his nose into my business, but I'm not going to worry myself sick over him, I'm sure someone at headquarters in Chicago had something to do with that but I have a plan that will take care of him, Prince Devitt, and everyone else. The plan, it's called Survival of the Sickest. Not only is that the name of our next pay per view event, but it's also the name of the craziest, wildest, and the "sickest" tournament in pro wrestling history.

 

"Dave Prazak": Mr. Cornette, who and what is this tournament about?

 

"Jim Cornette": That's simple, the Survival of the Sickest tournament is about one goal, making it to the finals. You see, whoever makes it to the finals will already known their opponent, that man is the World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles. And to answer who is in the tournament? Pretty much a whose who in the wrestling world from here in the US, Mexico, and Japan!

 

"Dave Prazak": Can you shed some light on when this tournament will begin and some of the matches?

 

"Jim Cornette": The tournament begins tonight, and Jesus Christ, Prazak, I just made the announcement, but how about this, how about in tonight's main event we eliminate one of the biggest thorns in the side of my Empire in the opening round when Tye Dillinger eliminates Prince Devitt!

 

"Dave Prazak": That's huge news!

 

"Jim Cornette": Oh that's not all, I'm on a roll! Try this one on for size, when we come back from commercial, the scheduled tag match between The Young Bucks and Inner City Machine Guns, well, you'll still see all four of those men in action next, but it's going to be a fatal four way, one winner, and the winner is the first man to advance to the next round in the Survival of the Sickest tournament! Now Prozak get out of my office before I put you in the tournament against Michael Bennett!

 

( Dave Prazak quickly moves towards the door, nearly falling over a chair before exiting the office. Once the door closes Michael Bennett and Tye Dillinger shake hands with Jim Cornette as the show fades to a commercial break from our sponsors at "Right Guard". As the show comes back from commercial we are back ringside for our opening contest of the evening. )

Now a lot of people say we lost our cool last week and went over board, but this is a new week, a new day, we've had time to calm down and think things through, starting with tonight. Obviously AJ Styles and Prince Devitt aren't in the building tonight after the beating we gave them last week, as for the rest of The Bullet Club, i've taken upon myself to suspend them from in ring competition until the Survival of the Sickest pay per view, when they return to take on The Ascension in a tables match! Now as for Kenny Omega, I took it upon myself to fly in your toughest competition from Japan, Kota Ibushi! As for the rest of the tournament, well I won't spoil all the surprises but you just saw the first member of The Empire advance to the next round, Michael Bennett, but the newest member of The Empire will be making his debut next week, and he is planning on taking this tournament by storm and making the finals all about The Empire! He is the crown jewel, the golden standard if you will, his name is.....well you're just going to have to wait for that one. But other matches you are going to see are, two mega stars from Japan, Hiroshi Tanahashi versus Shinsuke Nakamura, CIMA taking on AR Fox, Alex Shelley versus Lightning Mike Quackenbush, Kevin Steen will make his in ring debut when he goes one on one with Ruckus, a special 10 man battle royal, and so much more. In the end though it doesn't really matter, because here's a little spoiler for all you not so smart fans out there, I guarentee the winner of this tournament and your next World Champion, will be, a member of the Empire!

 

( Cornette then tossed the microphone back to the ringside attendant and joined Maria in raising the arm of Michael Bennett.

I spared no expense, I have security lined up at every entrance and exit this arena has, making sure The Bullet Club doesn't show up and attempt to ruin this great night. This man is a former NCAA amateur wrestlling champion, a man I met early on in his pro wrestling career and I knew he was destined for greatness. Other idiots in this business may have dropped the ball on him but I haven't, and I won't. He is going to run through this tournament like exlax, AJ Styles, get ready to start doing your homework because this is the man that is going to conqeur your championship reign and put you back on the injured list permantely. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, the Gold Standard, Shelton Benjamin!

We then saw a video package hyping the final four matches of the Survival of the Sickest tournament, Low Ki going one on one with Amazing Red, a six man tag team match pitting Chris Hero, CIMA, Naruki Doi and Dragon Kid taking on AR Fox, Samuray Del Sol, Mistico and Jushin "Thunder" Liger, John Morrison going one on one with Trent? And finally singles action involving Alex Shelley and Mike Quackenbush. We then returned ringside where a table and chairs had been set up, with a contract placed in the middle and a microphone placed on each side. We then hear the music of Mick Foley begin to play and he makes his way out onto the stage to a huge ovation from the fans in attendance. Foley rolled into the ring and did the trademark "bang bang" pose before walking to the side of the table facing the ramp and picking up the microphone. )

 

"Mick Foley": Earlier tonight we saw a little video package talking about how IWA Slam was going to be going on the road. That's a great thing for the company, I have great memories in cities like Chicago, Dallas, St. Louis, hell, even Philadelphia, but nothing compares to the energy I feel every time I walk through that curtain, right here...in Los Angeles California! You, the fans, are the reason I keep coming back year after year, week after week. Over the past few months I've tried to keep peace, I've tried to share the knowledge that I have picked up over the years in this business and share it with the already talented, young, and hungry talent in that locker room but no matter how hard I tried, there was always that one guy. That one guy goes by the name of Homicide. I know I don't have to explain my actions to anyone, but I felt like I owed it to the fans to explain why I come to IWA but Homicide couldn't accept reality. I had no intentions of stepping into this ring as an active competitor, hell I have been retired for years now. But Homicide you couldn't take no for an answer. You couldn't accept the facts and what did you do? You backed me into a corner, you attacked friends of mine in the business, you verbally attacked me and my legacy so I gave you the opportunity to face me. Now here we are, live on TV across the world. Millions are watching, they've been waiting for this moment all night. So let's cut to the chase. We both know how this is going to go, we both know this isn't going to end civil. So instead of continuing to beat around the bush, I'm going to sign my name on the dotted line right now, and you're going to bring your ass down to this ring and we are going to give these fans a preview of Survival of the Sickest!

 

( Mick Foley then tossed the microphone to the side, grabbed the pen off the top of the contract, flipped the pages and wrote his name on the dotted line, making his match with Homicide at Survival of the Sickest official on his part. Foley then tossed the pen and contract to the mat and flipped over the table and tossed the chairs over the top rope to the floor. Foley then kicked the contract to the center of the ring and began motioning for Homicide to come on down to the ring. He didn't have to wait long as Homicide's music began to play. Homicide appeared from behind the curtain and began making his way down the ramp. He stopped at the bottom of the ramp and grabbed a microphone off the steps and began to speak. )

 

"Homicide": Before I step into that ring and sign that contract, I want you to understand what you are getting yourself into. See, yeah, I've been listening to you run your mouth in that locker room since the first day you arrived here. Telling the boys and the fans, you're not a wrestler anymore, you aren't here to get in the ring, you just want to help the young guys grow. I've heard it plenty times before and I'm sick to death of it. Here is a bit of news homes. You never were a wrestler to begin with, you were a man in the right place at the right time that got lucky. That was years ago, now, the future has caught up with you and your luck has run out.

 

( Homicide then slowly began making his way up the steps and into the ring. Foley looked ready for a fight but Homicide held his hands up for a moment, letting Foley know he didn't want a fight. Homicide then lowered his arms and began to speak again. )

 

"Homicide": Foley, I knew the truth. I knew you couldn't stop yourself from stepping back into this ring and I knew exactly how to prove that. I'm Brooklyn through and through, I know no matter what you say as a man, if someone messes with your familia you defend them til death, your word is your bond and blood is blood. So what better way to make a man snap than by picking apart his boys one by one. You fell into the trap, you couldn't resist yourself and now look where we are. You can't wait to get your hands on me, and I can't blame you, but I can make you wait even longer, that is, unless you give me what I want. That's me and you, one on one, no rules, no pinfalls, no submissions, last man standing!

 

( Mick Foley shook his head in agreement and could be heard yelling you want it you got it! )

 

"Homicide": Good, I'm glad you see it that way, I guess all that's left to do is sign the dotted line. But before I do that, I said earlier your luck had run out and I meant that. Next week, one last time, I'll face any friend you can dig up from the past and once again I'm going to show you what you are getting yourself into....... Better yet, how about I show you right now!

 

( Homicide quickly took a swing at Foley with the microphone but Foley ducked and began lighting Homicide up with right's and lefts to the face. Foley hit the ropes and charged back with a clothesline. Homicide hit the mat and immediately got to his feet but got caught with a boot to the gut, Foley hooked Homicide for the double under hook DDT but Homicide reversed out and caught Foley with a clothesline of his own that took Foley off his feet. Homicide then began delivering stomps to the chest and back of Foley as he rolled to the corner to try and protect himself. Homicide then began choking Foley with a boot to the throat before hitting the ropes and charging back with a flying knee to the face that sent Foley rolling out of the ring to the floor. Homicide followed Foley out to the floor and lifted him to his feet. Homicide attempted to whip Foley into the ring steps but Foley reversed and sent Homicide knee's first into the steps, causing Homicide to flip over the steps to the floor. Foley made his way around the steps and began nailing Homicide in the head with repeated right hands to the head of Homicide then busted out the trademark "Bang Bang" hand gesture. Foley then made his way around the ring to the announcers table where he grabbed a steel chair. Foley tossed the chair into the ring then made his way around to Homicide. Foley rolled Homicide into the ring and followed him inside but Homicide caught Foley with a low blow, bringing him to his knees. Homicide hit the ropes and connected with a boot to the side of the head then made his way over to the chair that Foley had tossed into the ring. Homicide stalked Foley for a moment then blasted Foley in the head with the chair as he got to his feet, Foley fell into the ropes and as he bounced off, Homicide again nailed Foley in the head with the chair. Foley again fell backwards into the ropes with his arms getting wrapped up between the top and middle rope, trapping him as blood began to pour from the forehead. Homicide looked at Foley then to the crowd and smirked for a moment before raising the chair up once again. Homicide paused and decided to toss the chair to the mat. He then began nailing Foley with repeated right hands to the forehead causing the blood to splatter across his fists and pour to the mat. Homicide got a sick grin on his face and walked over to the contract and grabbed the pen. Homicide returned to Foley and began to dig at the forehead of Foley as Foley screamed in pain. Homicide then lifed up the contract and began writing his name on the contract with the blood of Mick Foley. Homicide returned to Foley and began digging into his head once again with the pen. Referee's and officials then slid into the ring and began pulling Homicide away but it was too late. The damage had already been done. Homicide finished signing his name in the blood of Foley. The show faded off the air as paramedics began to check on Foley who was lying on the mat and Homicide posed in the center of the ring with the contract held high. )

Winner: CIMA, Dragon Kid, Naruki Doi, and Chris Hero via pinfall

 

( After the referee called for the bell, Hero, Doi, and Dragon all entered the ring to join CIMA. The referee raised all their hands in victory to a course of boo's from the crowd. Blood Generation stepped forward and posed for the camera for a moment before CIMA began talking trash into the camera. Meanwhile, behind them, Chris Hero lowered his elbow pad and began to wind up. CIMA finished speaking to the camera and began to laugh, then turned around into the KO Elbow from Chris Hero. Doi and Dragon turned around and saw what happened and immediately went after Hero but he was able to slide out of the ring before they could get their hands on him. The show faded to a commercial break as Hero backed up the ramp with him arm raised high. After a word from our sponsors at "K-Y". We returned ringside for our next contest of the evening. "Bullet Club" members Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson made their way to the ring scheduled for tag team action with ACH and TaDarius Thomas but instead were interrupted by Jim Cornette's music. He along with every member from "The Empire" made their way down the ramp and into the ring. Gallows and Anderson stepped back towards the far corner sizing up everyone that was entering the ring but Cornette quickly began to speak. )

 

"Jim Cornette": Calm down guys, we aren't out here tonight for a fight, instead we want to talk business. You see I understand right now The Empire and The Bullet Club have our problems, but there is two things we have in common, that's AJ Styles' World Championship and money.

 

( Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson both nodded their head in agreement as Jim Cornette continued. )

 

"Jim Cornette": But unlike your leader Prince Devitt, I can always separate business from personal. Personally I hate The Bullet Club, but when it comes to business, I can smell money from a mile away and I can pick your scent up from across the globe. We are out here tonight to offer you a once in a lifetime opportunity. That's right, right here, right now, I'm offering you two the opportunity to make more money in a month than you have in the last year as apart of The Bullet Club, all you have to do is join us. Join The Empire!

 

( Anderson and Gallows look at each other for a moment and smile. Anderson nods his head at Cornette and motions for the microphone. Cornette smiles and graciously hands him the microphone. )

 

"Karl Anderson": Mr. Cornette, that offer sounds great and all but before we take you up on your offer we have a question for you. If you think we are money, or worth so much money, why wasn't we offered an opportunity in this tournament to earn a shot to face AJ Styles for the World Heavyweight Championship at Survival of the Sickest?

 

"Jim Cornette": Well....

 

"Karl Anderson": Well, here is another question while your trying to think of an answer to the previous question. Why haven't myself and big man over here Doc been offered a shot at The Ascension and those World Tag Team Titles?

 

"Jim Cornette": Well you see......

 

"Karl Anderson": Well you see Jim, you, The Empire, and your offer can go straight to hell, because if you think for one second The Bullet Club, or anyone associated with The BizCliz is about selling out your mistaken! We are more than just a group of guys bound my hatred and money, we are a brotherhood. Your offer, its sweet, but The Club is too sweet!

 

"Jim Cornette": I'm disappointed you two feel that way, but have to admit apart of me saw that coming. That's why I didn't come out here alone. You see, you might not respect me or my offer, but I can guarantee within the next five minutes that will change because we are about to beat some respect into you! Now get em' boys!

 

( The Empire then began to circle around Anderson and Gallows. Neither man waited for The Empire to make the first strike as Anderson quickly nailed Bennett with a forearm and Gallows nailed Dillinger. Anderson and Gallows then began trading blows with both members of The Ascension until Benjamin chop blocked the knee out from under Gallows. The Ascension was then able to hit Fall of Man on Anderson. It didn't take long after that for the lights to go out in the arena and The Bullet Club's music began to play. The lights came back on as The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and Prince Devitt then hit the ring and an all out brawl broke out. Moments later, CIMA, Naruki Doi, and Dragon Kid made their way from the back and into the ring and jumped Prince Devitt, giving the numbers advantage to The Empire, but the advantage didn't last long as Chris Hero, John Morrison, and Ricochet come out and joined in the melee. Cornette stood on the outside, pacing back and forth, pulling at his hair until he finally had enough. He waved to the back until finally referees, road agents, and security made their way out from the back and into the ring to separate everyone. The crowd voiced their displeasure with Cornette's actions but Cornette wasn't finished. He grabbed a nearby microphone and began to speak. )

 

"Jim Cornette": I don't give a crap what you fans think! And that's not all I don't give a crap about, lets get something straight right now, Chris Hero, Ricochet, John Morrison let me be perfectly clear with you, I run this company, I control who enters that ring, who enters this building and if you ever stick your nose in my business again, I will make sure you never work in my ring again if its the last thing I ever do!!!

 

( Jim Cornette tossed the microphone down and quickly joined the rest of The Empire on the ramp and made their way back to the locker room as the show faded to a commercial break from our sponsors at "Coors Light". We then returned for our next match of the evening. )

2. Survival of the Sickest Tournament

Low Ki vs. John Morrison vs. Michael Bennett w/ Maria Kanellis

All three men circled around for a moment before Ki and Morrison decided it was best to start things off working together against Bennett. Both men caught Bennett with a boot then took turns forearming and chopping him. Ki whipped Bennett into the ropes and Morrison followed up with a dropkick before going for the cover. Ki pulled Morrison off at the count of one. Morrison agreed he shouldn't have went for the cover and allowed Ki to charge in with an elbow drop. Ki went for the cover but Morrison quickly pulled him off to break up the count. Ki got to his feet and shoved Morrison, Morrison shoved him back and they went nose to nose arguing. This gave Bennett enough time to get to his feet and he got in the middle of both men and shoved Morrison, then Ki, and began yelling at both men. Bennett turned his attention to Morrison and got in his face, Morrison backed away, saying he didn't want no part of Bennett. Bennett turned around to face Ki but was met with a spinning roundhouse kick to the head that took Bennett down. Morrison followed up with a standing shooting star press to the back of Bennett and rolled him over and went for the cover but Ki pulled Morrison off once again. This time there was no arguing, Morrison caught Ki with a forearm and both men began trading forearms to the face until Morrison surprisingly got the best of Ki, firing up with multiple shots to the face. Morrison hit the ropes but Ki caught him with a rolling kick to the face. Ki went for the cover but only got the two count. Ki got to his feet and took a step backwards and got rolled up in a school boy by Bennett for a two.

Ki got to his feet but Morrison come up behind him and attempted a german suplex but Ki landed on his feet, hooked Morrison in a waist lock, but Morrison spun around and connected with a dragon suplex but Maria hopped up on the ring apron with her back to the referee and leaned over, distracting the referee from making the count on the pin attempt. This allowed Bennett enough time to get back to his feet and kick Morrison below the belt causing him to release the pin attempt. Maria hopped down from the ring apron and the referee turned around in time to see Bennett pull Ki to his feet and send him flying over the top rope to the floor. Bennett then pulled Morrison to his feet and nailed the pedigree for the 1...2...3!

 

Winner: Michael Bennett w/ Maria Kanellis via pinfall

 

( After the bell Maria slid into the ring and jumped into the arms of Bennett, they shared a kiss then she raised the arm of Bennett into the air. Meanwhile behind them, Low Ki slid into the ring and waited behind them. Bennett turned around and saw Ki as he began to charge at him. Bennett quickly pulled Maria in between them and Low Ki put on the brakes before he hit Maria. Bennett rolled out of the ring, leaving Maria in the ring with Ki. Ki looked at the crowd for a moment as they began to cheer at the thought of Ki getting his hands on Maria. Ki slipped a grin and went to grab Maria but Bennett grabbed her by the legs and pulled her out of the ring and both made their way around the ring and up the ramp as the show faded to a commercial break from our sponsors at "Coors Light". When we returned we heard the music of Jim Cornette who began to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring. Once inside the ring he grabbed a microphone and began to speak. )

 

"Jim Cornette": What a beautiful night it is! Not only is this the last night we will be in this dead beat, second rate New York City rip off city you people call Los Angeles but it is the night where you will see not just Michael Bennett but Shelton Benjamin continue their sweep in the Survival of the Sickest tournament. Now I know you LA educated morons are thinking how can they sweep the tournament when they will have to face each other in the finals to determine which man will face AJ Styles for the World Championship, but oh, don't you worry, ole James E. Cornette is always on his toes and we have a plan in place for that when it comes to pass. All you people really need to worry about is what will you do when your hero's get eliminated. But that's in two weeks, the purpose of me being out here is the present! Earlier today I was approached by a man that I have had a long history with, a man I absolutely hated and hoped I would never see again until we crossed paths today. This man approached me with an apology and not just an apology but begged me for my input on a certain situation going on not only in his life but in the life of every IWA fan across the world and me being the fine upstanding citizen I am, I couldn't stand by and do nothing. So I sent word out to a certain individual to meet me in this very ring tonight! So ladies and gentlemen let's not wait any longer, it is my honor to present to you....Mick...Foley!

 

( Mick Foley's music begins to play and he makes his way out onto the stage, cautiously. Foley looked around for a moment then made his way down the stage, looking at Cornette with a confused look on his face. Once inside the ring Foley grabbed a microphone from the producer nearby but before he could speak, he was cut off by Cornette. )

 

"Jim Cornette": Mick, buddy, it's great to see you again. I have to admit, after our conversation earlier today, I was afraid you wouldn't come out and show your face to all the fans around the world watching IWA tonight but.....

 

"Mick Foley": Jim, I really don't have any idea what you're talking about. To be honest with you, I think you're a complete jackass, and I believe I'm not the only one that feels that way, I'm almost certain everyone here in....Los Angeles feels the exact same way! So this meeting in the back earlier tonight that you're referring to, it wasn't with me, but I'm no fool, I have an idea who it was with, so why not cut to the chase, we both know this was some elaborate scheme to lure me out here so Homicide could get me in the ring, and that's fine by me but if we are going to do this, let's do it, right here, right now!

 

"Jim Cornette": I give it to you Mick, you're not nearly as stupid as you look. It was Homicide who approached me earlier today, but I had hope that you off all people, would come out here and finally use that brain of yours for some good! But you always have to try to be in the spotlight, you wouldn't recognize a good idea if it reached up and smacked you in the mouth! I on the other hand do recognize good ideas, and as I've said hundreds of times before, I can smell money from a mile away and it's coming in hard down the jet stream! Me and Homicide will never completely see eye to eye but if there is one thing we can agree on, it's that IWA would be a much better place for both of us if you were long gone, and I'm going to do my part, because at Survival of the Sickest you and Homicide will go one on one in a Ghetto Street Fight, no rules, no count outs, no time limits, the only way to win is by pinfall or submission, whether it takes place in this ring, out there with those stinking engrates you call fans, or down the street next to the dumpster where you belong! And let me tell you something buddy, you want Homicide out here so bad, you got it! Sound guy, hit that music, lets get Homicide out here so he can take out the trash!

 

( Homicide's music began to play, Mick Foley immediately tossed the microphone to the mat and glared at Cornette for a moment. Foley then tried to get a head start, and left the ring, once he made it to the top of the ramp he came to a sudden stop as Homicide appeared through the curtain but he wasn't alone. Homicide brought along his own reinforcement's in the form of Michael Bennett and Tye Dillinger. Foley began to back down the ramp, but behind his back, The Ascension jumped the barricade and began to make their way around the ringside area. Foley looked up to the video tron and saw what was going on behind his back, then turned around and saw for himself. Foley then looked around at the crowd, then turned around and jumped on Homicide and began nailing him with right hands until Bennett and Dillinger nailed him in the back with forearms and pulled him off. The Ascension then joined in on the beating and began nailing Foley with right hands while he was being held up by Bennett and Dillinger. Homicide got to his feet and yelled for everyone to roll him in the ring. Homicide quickly followed everyone into the ring and began stomping Foley in the mid-section before pulling him to his feet and holding him in place until The Ascension could nail him with Fall of Man. Homicide then grabbed the leg of Foley and locked in the STF until Low Ki come running from the back and slid into the ring but the numbers caught up with Ki quickly and he was taken down by The Empire, they eventually pulled Ki to his feet by his arms and Michael Bennett pie faced him multiple times until Ki had enough and spit in his face. Bennett looked furious and connected with a kick to the gut and nailed Ki with the pedigree! The lights went out and when they came back on The Bullet Clubs music began to play! Everyone in the ring turned around to face the stage but when they did Kenny Omega and Prince Devitt were already standing on the top rope waiting and took both members of The Ascension down with crossbody's! Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson, and The Young Bucks come running down the ramp and slid into the ring and went after The Empire and Homicide but everyone was able to slid out of the ring before The Bullet Club could get their hands on them. They made their way up the ramp as Jim Cornette's screamed at the top of their lungs that they would be sorry for this. Back inside the ring The Bullet Club helped Low Ki and Mick Foley to their feet to regroup as the show faded to a commercial break. After a word from our sponsors at "K-Y" we returned ringside for our next contest of the evening. )

 

3. Survival of the Sickest Tournament Match

Kevin Steen vs. Dragon Kid

It looked as though they were going to start things off with a lock up but Dragon ducked Steen's attempt and immediately went to work on the legs of the much larger Steen, delivering multiple kicks to the thigh before ducking a clothesline and hitting the ropes. Steen caught Dragon and attempted the pop up powerbomb but Dragon caught Steen with a hurricanrana. Steen rolled back to his feet and up against the ropes but Dragon charged in, slid under the bottom rope and pulled the legs out from under Steen. Steen rolled over though and kicked Dragon backwards into the barricade. Steen followed Dragon out to the floor and went after him but again Dragon ducked under a clothesline and slid back into the ring, hit the ropes and dropkicked Steen off the ring apron as he attempted to climb back in. Dragon then followed up with a corkscrew crossbody before pulling Steen to his feet and rolling him inside.

( After the referee called for the bell he attempted to raise the arm of Kevin Steen in the air but he pulled away and went to the turnbuckle and posed for a moment as the show faded to a commercial break. After a word from our sponsors at "Right Guard" we returned back to ringside where the music of IWA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles begin to play. AJ made his way out onto the stage to a huge ovation from the Chicago crowd and he is dressed to compete. He made his way down the ramp and into the ring where he posed with his championship for a moment before grabbing a microphone and speaking to the audience. )

 

"AJ Styles": First things first, I just want to say thank you, not just to you people here tonight, but everyone watching around the world. Thank you for not turning your back on me, because I know I haven't been here as much as I should but I think you all know why. Yes, I was injured at the last pay per view event, but the doctor cleared me to compete weeks ago, but a certain someone in the locker room wouldn't allow me at the events, threatening me day in and day out, telling me, if I show up he is going to strip me of my World Championship, hell, this isn't just my championship, this is OUR championship! I hated being away from you people but I thought I was doing what was best for us by not allowing the most prestigous championship in our business to fall into the hands of a snake like Jim Cornette or his cronies in The Empire. Maybe it took too long, but sitting at home, I realized, it didn't matter what Cornette had to say, or what Cornette threatened me with, what matters is making you fans happy each and every night, and I know what you people want to see right here, tonight! So that brings me to why I'm out here tonight in my wrestling gear. I'm sick and tired of all the talking, Cornette! I think it's time we give these people what they paid their hard earned money for, that's a fight!

 

( The Empire's music begins to play and Jim Cornette lead's the group out onto the stage. They form a line across the stage and Cornette approaches Shelton Benjamin. They exchange laughs and Shelton asks for the microphone and begins to speak. )

 

"Shelton Benjamin": AJ Styles, I know we've never properly met but let me give you a recap of what has been going on around here. Up until about a month ago you were recognized as the greatest athlete to ever step foot into a ring here in IWA, well you are looking at a real All-American athlete, the golden standard when it comes to professional wrestling. I know you've been laid up on the couch at home eating potato chips watching IWA Slam every week and you know when I say I'm going to do something, I deliver! I've racked up two victories in the Survival of the Sickest Tournament, and this Sunday I'm two more victories away from getting what's rightfully mine, and that's a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship in the main event.

 

"AJ Styles": You are right about one thing, and thats this; I have been watching the show from home each and every week. I've been keeping my eye on this tournament, and the problems The Empire have been causing every week and tonight was no different. Shelton Benjamin, if you can make it past your next two matches I look forward to stepping into the ring with you and defending my championship against you, but that's if you can make it past your next two matches. You see this isn't some watered down soap opera on a monday or thursday night, you are with the cream of the crop now. The men and women that are apart of IWA are apart of the elite competition in the world, not just the United States, but the best Japan, Europe, Mexico, and every other country in the world has to offer. Here lately you've got a taste of some of best Japan has to offer but what about men like Chris Hero, Ricochet, Colt Cabana and Kevin Steen? Some of America's top talents. Here is an even bigger question for you, what happens if it's you taking on the man standing next to you, Michael Bennett?

 

"Jim Cornette": AJ Styles, don't you worry about what is going to happen this Sunday when my two men make it to the final round. You see, all you need to worry about is whats this "snake" going to do tonight. You can call me a snake if you want, but I'm still a fair man. There are problems here in IWA that I need to address and I'm going to do so right now. The first problem has been brewing for months and I hope after this Sunday night that issue will be solved because I'm making it official, for the first time in IWA history, CIMA will finally get his match and go one on one with Jushin "Thunder" Liger! Now, the second problem the issues between Homicide and Mick Foley are finally coming to an end at Survival of the Sickest when they do battle in the Ghetto Street Fight, now I know the deal I cut with Homicide and this is the match he wanted, but I want to get something out of this as well, you see, Mick Foley, you losing isn't good enough for me, I want you out of my life for good! So the match will officially read "Loser Get's Fired, Ghetto Street Fight"! Now, finally to address happened earlier tonight and every since then I can't turn around without someone asking me what I'm going to do. That problem is between Prince Devitt and Chicago's own Colt Cabana! You see The Empire decided they wanted to go ringside and scout out potential competition in the upcoming rounds of the Survival of the Sickest tournament but Cabana and Devitt just couldn't keep their hands to themselves. My men were provoked and were left with no choice but to defend themselves, I can't help that the rules state that the winner advances to the next round. So with that being said, since there was no winner, BOTH Prince Devitt and Colt Cabana have been eliminated from the tournament!

 

"AJ Styles": Are you ki......

 

"Jim Cornette": AJ, AJ, before you get carried away over something that doesn't concern you, let's address something that does concern you. You said you come out here tonight to give these people what they wanted, and I believe you said that was a fight. Well quiet frankly these people can't decide on what size underwear to put on, so I don't know why you'd even think they know what would be best for business. But if you want a fight then so be here, here comes your opponent.

 

( Jim Cornette begins laughing as Tye Dillinger steps forward and begins to walk down the ramp, AJ jumps up and down in the ring, hyping himself up but pauses as Michael Bennett begins heading down the ramp, shortly behind them, The Ascension fall in line, followed by Shelton Benjamin. It didn't take long for all of The Empire to surround the ring but AJ Styles wasn't alone, The Bullet Club's music hit and they hit the ring to join AJ Styles. The Empire looked around at each other and for the first time they looked as though they weren't back down from the fight. Moments later everyone hit the ring and began brawling back and forth as the crowd went crazy. Homicide joined the fight to try and help the odds go in the favor of The Empire but Mick Foley began making his way down to the ring with a chair. Once he slid into the ring Tye Dillinger got caught with a chair shot to the back that sent him through the ropes to the floor. Foley took a swing at Bennett's head but he ducked but ducked into superkicks from The Young Bucks. Gallows and Anderson took out The Ascension with clotheslines over the top rope to the floor. Just as things seemed to be calming down Colt Cabana come walking out from the back slowly. He slowly made his way around the ring, and up behind Jim Cornette. He grabbed Cornette by the shirt collar and Cornette immediately started shaking, trying to break lose and begging Cabana to let him go. Cabana refused and rolled Cornette into the ring where he was grabbed up by AJ Styles and placed in position for The Styles Clash. Cabana rolled in as The Empire surrounded the ring again trying to reach in to get Cornette but The Bullet Club and Mick Foley held everyone off. AJ asked the crowd if they wanted to see it and the place went crazy. AJ smiled though and instead of lifting Cornette into the air he spun him around to Cabana. Colt Cabana didn't hesitate as he yelled "this is for tonight from me, Devitt, and the fans". Cabana lifted Cornette into the air and nailed him with Colt45 and the fans went crazy as the rest of The Empire lost their minds on the floor. Foley and AJ then lifted up the motionless body of Jim Cornette and tossed him through the ropes into the arms of Michael Bennett and Tye Dillinger. The Empire yelled for help as The Bullet Club, Mick Foley, AJ Styles, and Colt Cabana all posed in the center of the ring., including a quick staredown and handshake between Devitt and Styles. The show faded to a commercial break as EMT personel made their way out onto the stage to aid Cornette. After a brief word from our sponsors at "Just For Men" we returned ringside for our main event of the evening. )

Kenny Omega vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Omega made his way out onto the stage with all the fellow Bullet Club members but stopped them at the top of the stage, out of respect to Nakamura he sent them all to the back after throwing up the "BizCliz" hand gesture. The match started off intense with a lock up that saw both men jocking for position and eventually rolling out to the floor, around the ringside area and back into the ring with neither man letting go of the lock up. Finally Nakamura broke the lock up and slapped Omega so hard blood flew out of his mouth. Nakamura smiled as Omega fired back with a back hand of his own. Nakamura's smile quickly turned to a serious look and both men began trading kicks to the thighs until Nakamura fired up with a quick combination of kicks to the thigh, chest, a spinning back kick that sent Omega crashing face first to the mat then a running baseball slide to the face. Nakamura went for the cover but only got a two count. Both men got to their feet and circled for a moment before going for a lock up again, this time Omega slipped behind Nakamura in a go behind, tripped the legs out from under him, walked across his back and head, hit the ropes, nailed Nakamura with a shoulder tackle as he got to his feet, step over, this time Nakamura went to all four's, in an attempt to trip Omega up but instead Omega turned it into a mahistrole cradle for a two count. Both men again quickly got to their feet and Omega caught Nakamura with an uppercut, but Nakamura shook it off, smiled, and nailed Omega with an uppercut that sent him staggering into the ropes. Omega fired back with another, as did Nakamura. Omega then switched things up and connected with a hard chop, Nakamura responded with multiple chops of his own until Omega finally had the opportunity to duck one. Nakamura turned around and went for another chop but Omega screamed for him to stop. Nakamura paused as Omega did a martial arts pose. Nakamura laughed but Omega nailed him with the Flash Man's Time Stopper enzijiri kick that sent Nakamura through the ropes and to the floor. Nakamura slowly made his way to his feet as Omega hit the ropes and leaped to the top rope with a flying senton onto Nakamura.

Omega pulled Nakamura into position and made his way to the top rope and connected with a Shooting Star Press but only got a two count! Omega couldn't believe the referee's count and argued it should have been a three but the referee wouldnt change his mind on the count. The distraction allowed Nakamura enough time to regain some strength and catch Omega with a kick to the side of the head as he bent over to lift him up. Nakamura got to his feet and hit the ropes, charging back at Omega but Omega caught him in an abdominal stretch. Omega synched it in as Nakamura reached for the ropes, hoping for a way to avoid tapping out. Nakamura couldn't reach the ropes but instead found the strength to eventually hip toss Omega over and out of the hold. Omega got to his feet and made his way towards Nakamura but Nakamura snatched the leg out from under Omega and dropped a knee to the inside of the knee of Omega, then turned a step over toe hold into a sharpshooter. Omega screamed in pain but refused to tap when the referee checked on him.

Winner: Shelton Benjamin via pinfall

 

( After the match the referee attempted to raise Shelton Benjamin's hand in victory but he shoved the referee away and rolled out of the ring and made his way to the top of the ramp where he was joined by Jim Cornette and several other members of "The Empire". Cornette and Tye Dillinger raised Benjamin's hand in victory but the celebration didn't last long as they were interrupted by Dave Prazak, who had a microphone in hand and began to speak. )

 

"Dave Prazak":: Mr. Cornette, Shelton Benjamin, I hate to interrupt the celebration but I have to ask a couple questions. Mr Cornette I'd like to start with you, obviously the plan going into tonight was Shelton Benjamin and Michael Bennett to make a clean sweep and face each other in the finals, which just took place. Can I get your thought's on Michael Bennett not making it into the finals? I see that he, and Maria are not out here with you and the other members of "The Empire", is there any animosity between "The Empire" and Michael Bennett after his loss earlier tonight?

 

"Jim Cornette": You're right Dave, that was the plan going into tonight but just like any good coach, the game plan has to change on the fly! And no you pea brain, there isn't any "animosity" in the ranks of "The Empire". You seen the battle Michael Bennett went through earlier tonight and at this moment, Maria and Michael Bennett are on their way back to the hotel. He's going to rest up, and when Shelton Benjamin win's the World Championship he's going to have to after party ready to go!

 

"Dave Prazak": That leads me to my next question, you are already predicting Shelton Benjamin to win the World Championship tonight, can you give us a little insight on your game plan going forward in tonight's main event against the current champion, "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles?

 

"Shelton Benjamin": Prazak, if your going to be asking any questions about AJ Styles you direct them towards me! AJ Styles, I hope you're listening backstage right now when I tell you this has been without a doubt the toughest tournament of my career, but I'm letting you know right now nothing has got in my way yet, and nothing will get in my way from taking what is rightfully mine, and what is rightfully "The Empire's" and that is the IWA World Heavyweight Championship! You call yourself "The Phenomenal One" but I'm letting you know and these people know, I have proven tonight that I am the real phenomenal athlete in the IWA and if there is still any doubt in your minds, I'm going to go to the back, ice down, stretch, and get ready to come right back out here in just a little bit and put all the doubters to rest when I end the reign of AJ Styles being the top guy in this company!

 

( Benjamin then shoved Prazak out of the way and lead "The Empire" to the locker room. We then went to a video package highlighting the feud between Homicide and Mick Foley over the last few months, including Foley's "extreme" obstacles he put in the path of Homicide to finally score a one on one match. We then see the highlights of Jim Cornette addressing the match, including announcing the match as a Loser Get's Fired, Ghetto Street Fight. After seeing footage of Foley and Homicide brawling on a recent episode of IWA Slam, we went ringside for our introductions of the next match of the evening. )

 

7. Loser Get's Fired, Ghetto Street Fight

Mick Foley vs. Homicide

They didn't waste any time getting this match started as Homicide met Foley in the aisle as he was making his entrance. Both men began trading rights and lefts with Homicide getting the better of Foley after a knee to the gut. Homicide took a few steps back and charged at Foley, but Foley ducked down and back dropped Homicide onto the stage. Foley made his way down to the ring and went under the ring, pulling out trash cans, chairs, a kendo stick, and other items that could obviously be used in this street fight, further proving this would definitely be no technical masterpiece. Foley grabbed the trash can and met Homicide on the ramp, nailing him in the head and sending him staggering backwards up the ramp. Foley nailed Homicide once again in the head with the trash can, this time Homicide staggered back into part of the stage set. Foley played to the crowd for a moment, yelling out his trademark "Bang Bang" catchphrase. Foley then went to hit Homicide in the head once again with the trash can but Homicide ducked and Foley nailed the stage set and dropped the trash can. Foley turned around and was met with multiple forearms from Homicide, who then grabbed Foley and threw him into the stage set. Foley fell to the ground and Homicide went for the cover but barely got a two count. Homicide got to his feet and backed up a few steps and ran at Foley, leaping into the air and dropping an elbow across the chest. Homicide then got to his feet and went behind the curtain and eventually returned, pulling out a shopping cart full of weapons. Homicide quickly grabbed a stop sign from the cart and nailed Foley in the head as he was getting back to his feet, then another shot to the back that sent Foley towards the edge of the stage. Homicide then went back to the shopping cart and pulled out a baseball bat. Homicide approached Foley again and attempted to take Foley's head off with the bat but Foley was able to duck and connect with a boot to the gut of Homicide, causing him to drop the bat. Foley then hooked Homicide for a suplex and Homicide blocked with a knee to the face but Foley didn't let go of the hold. Foley went to the suplex one more time, but again Homicide caught Foley with a knee to the face, this time Foley was forced to let go. Homicide backed up and charged at Foley, looking for a clothesline but Foley ducked, causing Homicide to spin around. Foley then connected with a Russian Leg Sweep sending both men crashing 5 foot to the concrete below. The crowd erupted as the referee immediately jumped off the stage to check on both men. Neither man wanted to quit though so the referee told the EMT's and officials to step back and let the men continue. Foley eventually crawled over to Homicide and laid an arm across his chest but he only got a two count. Both men slowly began making their way to their feet, where they began trading punches until Foley fired up with repeated jabs to the chin of Homicide. Foley then grabbed Homicide and attempted to whip him into the barricade but Homicide reversed and sent Foley flying into the barricade back first. Homicide once again charged at Foley and Foley back dropped Homicide over the barricade and into the crowd. Foley and the referee made their way over the barricade and joined Homicide in the crowd where Foley and Homicide began trading punches once again as they made their way around the crowd. Homicide finally ducked a punch but as he turned around Foley caught him with a boot to the gut then a suplex onto the concrete. Foley went for the cover but only got the two. Foley got to his feet and pulled Homicide up with him. Foley spotted a fan holding his chair up so he lead Homicide over to the fan. Foley and the fan held the back of the chair as Foley sent Homicide face first into the chair. Homicide staggered backwards a couple rows before tripping over a chair and falling to the ground. Foley approached Homicide and as he leaned over to grab Homicide, Homicide tossed a fans beer into the eyes of Foley, temporarily blinding him. Homicide got to his feet, grabbing a chair on his way up, and as Foley turned around, Homicide tossed the chair into his face. Homicide went for the cover but only got the two! Homicide got to his feet and delivered a stomp to Foley before pulling him up to his feet. Homicide lead Foley through the crowd for a moment before whipping him into the barricade, and sending Foley flipping over the barricade back into the ringside area. Homicide then leaped over the barricade and began beating on his chest as the crowd let out a chorus of boos. Homicide grinned before going around the ring and grabbing a chair. Homicide sat the chair up next to the barricade, then grabbed Foley and threw him into the chair. Homicide then connected with a couple right hands and chops before sliding into the ring. Once inside the ring Homicide hit the ropes and attempted the tope con hilo but Foley moved out of the way just in time as Homicide crashed upside down in the chair. Foley drug Homicide away from the chair and went for the cover but only got a two count. Foley got to his feet and looked around under the ring for a moment before pulling out a barbwire baseball bat, along with extra barbwire that was under the ring. Foley tossed the bat inside the ring and proceeded to pull Homicide to his feet and roll him inside. Foley followed, and grabbed the bat out of the corner, slowly backing Homicide into the opposing corner before finally attempting to swing at the head of Homicide but he ducked out of the way and kicked the bat into the face of Foley. Immediately you could see where the barbwire had sliced the skin of Foley open, as blood began to pour from the head of Foley. Foley staggered back towards the corner as Homicide charged in with a running big boot to the face, then delivered the face wash to a seated Foley, before hitting the ropes and nailing the flying knee to the face. Homicide pulled the bloody Foley out of the corner and went for the cover but only got the two count. Homicide rolled out of the ring and began moving things around under the ring until he pulled out a table, Homicide began setting the table up next to the ring until he noticed Foley moving around in the ring, trying to pull himself to his feet. Homicide grabbed the kendo stick that was lying at ringside then slid into the ring and nailed Foley in the back. Homicide stalked Foley, waiting for him to turn around and as he did, Homicide connected with another shot with the kendo stick to the thigh, Foley didn't leave his feet though and Homicide was visibly upset. Homicide went for another swing, this time to the rib cage but Foley caught the stick and pulled Homicide in, connecting with two clotheslines then ducked a clothesline attempt from Homicide and went for a back suplex but Homicide landed on his feet, but Homicide's momentum caused him to back into the ropes. Foley turned around and charged at Homicide, connecting with a clothesline that sent both men flying over the top rope to the floor. Foley got to his feet and let out the signature "Bang Bang" before pulling Homicide to his feet then taking him right back down with a body slam to the floor. Foley then grabbed a steel chair and made his way up to the ring apron, then charged down the apron, diving onto Homicide, planting the chair in his face. Foley went for the cover but Homicide kicked out just before the three. Foley got to his feet and pulled Homicide up with him and connected with a right hand, then slammed the face of Homicide off the ring apron. Foley then started looking under the ring for a weapon of his choice and ends up pulling out a cookie sheet with a bag on top of it. Foley takes the bag and tosses it into the ring before taking the cookie sheet and nailing Homicide in the back of the head with it. Foley then tosses the cookie sheet to the side and grabs Homicide and pulls him around the ring where he slammed him face first on the table that Homicide had set up earlier in the match. Foley proceeded to lay Homicide across the table and climb up on the ring apron. Foley pointed to the turnbuckles as the crowd began to get louder and louder in excitement, but by the time Foley had made his way up to the second turnbuckle, Homicide rolled off the table and made his way up onto the ring apron. Foley hopped down from the turnbuckle and met Homicide on the apron and both men began trading punches. Homicide took the upper hand after a head butt and backed away from Foley, once in the corner Homicide pulled down the elbow sleeve and started to run down the apron but Foley caught him with the mandible claw! The referee began asking if Homicide wanted to submit but he refused, finally he was able to catch Foley with a kick below the belt, forcing Foley to release the hold. Homicide once again backed up to the corner, then ran down the apron, jumping up and catching Foley with a ddt off the apron, sending both men through the table! Both men laid motionless for what seemed like an eternity until Homicide draped an arm across the chest of Foley but could only get a two count! Homicide couldn't believe what just happened and began to argue with the referee but the referee held his ground, claiming Foley got his shoulder up at two. Homicide slowly got to his feet and pulled Foley up with him, using everything he had in him to push Foley into the ring. Homicide then went to the top rope and connected with the frog splash. Homicide went for the cover but Foley managed to get his foot on the bottom rope at two! Homicide got to his feet, again furious with the referee's count. He then made his way over to the bag that Foley had tossed into the earlier moments earlier and lifted it up, looking inside the bag and getting a grin on his face. Homicide then began to pour the contents of the bag, thousands of thumb tacks in the middle of the ring. Homicide then rolled out of the ring and grabbed the strand of barbwire that Foley left laying at ringside earlier in the match and a steel chair, tossing it into the ring, then sliding in and grabbing the chair. Homicide placed the chair in the turnbuckles, between the top and middle ropes, then grabbed Foley up off the mat. Homicide spun Foley around and attempted to toss him into the chair but Foley reversed and sent Homicide in face first. Homicide staggered back, Foley spun him around and connected with a boot to the gut and hooked him for the double underhook DDT but Homicide dropped to one knee before spinning out and connected with a forearm to the face. Homicide then hit the ropes and attempted a lariat but Foley once again ducked, Homicide then turned around into another boot to the gut and this time connected with the double underhook DDT into the tacks. Homicide screamed in pain as Foley looked at the crowd, then back at Homicide with a smile on his face. Foley went for the cover as the crowd counted along, but Homicide managed to kick out at two to the dismay of the crowd. Foley got to his feet, and pulled out a couple of the thumbtacks stuck in his arm before lifting Homicide to his feet. Foley hooked Homicide for a piledriver into the tacks but Homicide dropped to a knee and connected with another low blow, then grabbed a hand full of tacks and tossed them into the face and eyes of Foley, temporarily blinding him. Homicide then found the strand of barbwire and began wrapping it around his arm. Homicide then charged at Foley, nailing him with a lariat that sent him into the tacks. Homicide went for the cover and picked up the 1....2....3!

 

Winner: Homicide via pinfall

 

( After the referee called for the bell he began checking on both Homicide and Mick Foley. Homicide gave the nod that he was okay and sat up, beginning to unwrap the barbwire from around his arm as blood trickled from the wounds it had caused. Meanwhile the referee motioned for help from the back for Foley, who was motionless in the tacks as blood continued to pour from his head and several wounds around his neck. The EMT's entered the ring and helped Foley sit up, and began trying to clean the blood off of his face as Homicide crawled to the corner and pulled himself up. After a few moments the EMT's brought the back board into the ring and tried to move Foley onto the board but he began pushing them back, finally Foley rolled over and got to his knees, still pushing everyone back, finally grabbing the ropes and pulling himself to his feet, he let go and staggered backwards and fell back into the corner opposite of Homicide and both men locked eyes. Foley wiped the blood from his face and got the strength to stand up straight and began limping towards the center of the ring. Once to the center of the ring he slowly raised his hand up, offering a handshake to Homicide, signifying he was the better man tonight. Homicide looked at Foley, then to the crowd, then back at Foley as the crowd began to chant "shake his hand, shake his hand". Homicide made his way out to the center of the ring and slowly brought his hand up, as Foley extended for the handshake, Homicide jerked his hand back and flipped off Foley and could be heard saying "F**k you, you're fired!" The crowd let out a huge sound of boo's as Homicide turned away from Foley and exited the ring. Homicide made his way up the ramp as Foley dropped his head in disappointment. The crowd then began a loud "Thank you Foley!" chant to which Foley responded by raising his head up, and doing his trademark "Bang Bang" pose one last time, and for one last time Mick Foley exited the IWA ring with referee's and EMT's surrounding him. Foley then made his way up the ramp, raising his arm in the air as he reached the top of the ramp, then disappeared behind the curtain as the show faded to its last break before the main event. After we heard from our sponsors at "Just For Men" we then began to see highlights of the entire Survival of the Sickest Tournament that concluded with Shelton Benjamin winning the tournament and earning a shot to face AJ Styles. We then saw a recap of the interview Dave Prazak conducted earlier in the night with Jim Cornette and Shelton Benjamin where they addressed the loss of Michael Bennett earlier in the evening and him leaving the arena to set up the after party at the hotel, and Benjamin talking about tonight would be the night he ended AJ Styles reign on top as Heavyweight Champion and he would prove he was the real phenomenal athlete in IWA. We then went ringside for the introductions of our main event! )

( The show kicks off with a recap from last night's pay per view event "Survival of the Sickest, including Homicide defeating Mick Foley in the Loser Get's Fired Ghetto Street Fight, we then saw a brief recap of the tournament semi-finals, then the finals, including the controversal final moments that saw AJ Styles retain his championship. The pyro then exploded inside the arena and we went live to our commentators who were hyping up tonight's show. We then went to the ring where TaDarius Thomas was standing by for our opening contest, but instead of hearing his opponents music hit, The Empire's music began to play and Jim Cornette lead his men out onto the stage with Michael Bennett helping Maria Kanellis, who was wearing a neck brace and sling, out onto the stage. They wasted very little time and everyone made their way down the ramp and into the ring. Thomas looked on with a worried look on his face and as everyone entered the ring, he began backing up towards the far corner, he put one leg through the ropes and looked to exit the ring but before he could, both members of The Ascension charged over and nailed him with forearms to the face and back before pulling him back into the center of the ring. Both men grabbed an arm and held him up as Jim Cornette began shouting at him before backing up then running up and throwing a kick at his groin. Thomas collapsed and screamed in agony as The Ascension continued to hold onto his arms. Cornette then looked back and motioned for Maria to make her way forward. She eased forward as Cornette stepped back and motioned for Tye Dillinger to get him a microphone. Meanwhile back in the center of the ring, Maria used her free arm to slap Thomas multiple times in the face before The Ascension finally released him, to collapse in the center of the ring. Benjamin then stepped forward, jerking Thomas up off the canvas, hooking him and connecting with the T-Bone suplex. Thomas laid motionless in the center of the ring as Cornette took the microphone from Dillinger and began to speak. )

 

"Jim Cornette": You see this right here! This is your fault AJ Styles! Everything you see before you is all on your hands, poor defenseless Maria, you threw Michael Bennett into her last night, knocking her from the ring to the concrete floor, now she has a fractured left arm, and even worse, her neck could be broken. But the fighting spirit she has wouldn't let her stay at the hospital, no! she wanted to show all her millions of fans around the world that unlike you AJ Styles, she's not a coward! She will overcome her injuries, but the one thing we can not get over is how you cheated to retain the World Championship last night! What just happened to TaDarius Thomas is nothing compared to what is going to happen to you when we get our hands on you and I'm going to make sure that happens sooner than later, because later tonight, AJ Styles, you and Prince Devitt are going to be in action when you take on three, yeah that's right, I said three! of my members of The Empire, which three, well you will just have to stay tuned and find out for yourself, but I promise you this, what happened last night will not happen again!

 

( Jim Cornette tossed the microphone to the side and made his exit from the ring and was followed by the other members of The Empire. As everyone made their way up the ramp, referee's and officials made their way down the ramp to check on the welfare of TaDarius Thomas. The show then faded to it's first commercial break of the evening. After a word from our sponsors at "Right Guard" we returned to ringside for our first contest of the evening. )

CIMA held on though and hooked Omega for a suplex from the ring to the floor but Omega was able to block, and attempt a suplex of his own but CIMA blocked as well. CIMA finally got the strength to lift Omega into the air but Omega managed to land on the ring apron and turn CIMA's suplex attempt into a swinging neck breaker off the ring apron to the floor knocking both men out! The referee began the ten count and by the count of 7 both men had began to make their way back to their feet. Omega attempted to slide into the ring at the count of 9 but CIMA grabbed Omega and sent him flying back first into the barricade. CIMA attempted to slide into the ring but he couldn't beat the referee's count. The referee called for the bell ruling this match a no contest due to a count out.

 

Winner: No Contest via Double Count Out

 

( After the referee called for the bell, CIMA stood ringside, looking furious at the referee's decision. CIMA decided to take out his frustration on Kenny Omega, lifting him up off the ground and attempting to whip him into the ring steps but Omega managed to reverse and send CIMA into the steps. Omega then made his way over to CIMA and attempted to lift CIMA to his feet but CIMA kicked Omega in the knee, causing him to collapse. CIMA then got to his feet and began stomping away at the injured leg of Omega before lifting him up and rolling him back inside the ring. CIMA stayed on the floor though, and grabbed the legs of Omega, wrapping them around the ring post and locking in a modified figure four leg lock around the ring post. Omega screamed in pain as CIMA synched in the hold. Finally referee's and other backstage officals made their way down the ramp and forced CIMA to release the hold but it was obvious the damage had been done. CIMA shoved the officials away and made his way up the ramp as everyone else made their way into the ring to check on the injured Kenny Omega. After a few moments they were able to help Omega to the floor and to his feet. With the help of a referee on each side of him Omega was able to begin limping his way towards the ramp as the show faded to it's final commercial break of the evening. After a word from our sponsors at "Right Guard" we returned ringside for our main event of the evening. )

 

5. IWA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles© and Prince Devitt vs. The Empire ( Shelton Benjamin, Tye Dillinger, and Michael Bennett )

AJ and Devitt made their way to the ring first and The Empire's music quickly followed with every member of The Empire, with the exception of Michael Bennett and Maria Kanellis, making their way out onto the stage. They slowly made their way down the ramp, towards the ring. Benjamin was the first man to make his way up onto the apron with other members circling around the ring. Referee Chad Patton got tired of seeing the gang style antics of The Empire and exited the ring, taking a microphone and ordering The Empire to choose their team or they would be counted out and disqualified. He also added that once their team was chosen the remaining men would return to the locker room or that too would cause a disqualification! Cornette looked furious and asked the referee if he knew who he was, the referee didn't care and began the count, by the count of 5, The Empire had decided Tye Dillinger would join Benjamin. Both men entered the ring, but with only two men in the ring the referee continued the count. Benjamin and Dillinger began arguing with the referee, Styles, and Devitt, causing a distraction long enough for Michael Bennett to come through the crowd, jump over the barricade and slide into the ring behind Styles and Devitt. Bennett nailed Styles with a low blow as Benjamin and Dillinger began to attack Devitt. The referee called for the opening bell as The Empire made their way up the ramp and to the locker room. Meanwhile back inside the ring Bennett, Benjamin, and Dillinger put the boots to Styles and Devitt until Bennett tossed Styles through the ropes to the floor. Dillinger then whipped Devitt into the corner. Bennett charged in with a splash, followed by Benjamin with a stinger splash. Benjamin then whipped Devitt out of the corner where Dillinger was waiting to catch him with a belly to belly suplex. Benjamin and Bennett made their way to their corner as Dillinger went for the cover but only got a two count. Dillinger quickly got back to his feet and pulled Devitt up with him locking in a front chancery and making the tag to Bennett, who entered the ring and immediately went to the second rope and jumped off, delivering an axe handle to the back. Bennett quickly followed up with a back breaker and held on, wrenching in the hold, bending Devitt backwards across his knee, attempting to get the submission victory but was having no luck. Devitt eventually began to fight back as AJ pulled himself back up on the ring apron. Devitt fired back with right hands to the face of Bennett until Bennett pulled Devitt to his feet and went for another back breaker. This time, Devitt was able to counter into a headscissors then a picture perfect dropkick, then a arm drag, Devitt held onto the arm drag though and wrenched at the arm before tagging in Styles. Both men whipped Bennett into the ropes with Devitt leap frogging Bennett, followed by a leap frog from Styles, Devitt caught Bennett with a drop toe hold, followed up by Styles hitting the ropes and coming back with hesitation knee drop to the back of the head of Bennett. Styles went for the cover but Benjamin broke up the count at two. Benjamin returned to his corner as AJ got to his feet and pulled Bennett up with him, connecting with several forearms to the face. AJ then whipped Bennett into the ropes, Benjamin made the blind tag, as AJ caught Bennett with a back body drop. Styles turned around and got taken down by Benjamin with a flying clothesline off the top rope. Benjamin immediately went for the cover but only got a two count. Benjamin argued with the referee for a moment as Styles began to make his way back to his feet. Benjamin caught him with an uppercut then a snapmare before mounting Styles and delivering a dozen or more punches to the head. Benjamin again went for the cover but Styles kicked out at two. Benjamin got to his feet, pulling Styles up with him and made the tag to Dillinger. Both men whipped AJ into the ropes and nailed him with a double back elbow. Dillinger went for the cover but only got the two count. Dillinger pulled Styles to his feet and connected with a forearm to the back before locking him, and connecting with a German suplex, Dillinger held on though and rolled through, looking to attempt a second but as soon as he reached his feet he released the hold and dropped to the mat clutching his knee. The referee immediately went to check on him, Dillinger spoke briefly with the referee, who proceeded to throw up the "X". The referee then went over to check on AJ, who was still on the mat, the referee then went over to Benjamin and Bennett, who were looking on at their injured partner, who was lying on the mat, clutching at his left knee. Jim Cornette, and trainer's made their way down the ramp to the ring and slowly helped Dillinger under the bottom rope to the floor. They spoke briefly with Dillinger, who was heard clearly saying he felt his knee pop and "explode" as he stood up for the second suplex. As the trainers began to help Dillinger to the locker room to get help, Michael Bennett entered the ring and began to stomp away at Styles. Bennett lifted Styles to his feet and connected with a right hand before whipping him into the ropes, Bennett ducked down for a back drop attempt but Styles caught him with a kick to the face. Styles then hit the ropes and attempted a clothesline but Bennett ducked, Styles put on the brakes, and caught Bennett with a pele kick as he turned around. Both men then began crawling to their respective corners as the referee began his ten count. Both men made the tag to their partners at the count of 8 with Devitt connecting with a springboard dropkick to both Benjamin and Bennett. Devitt then began nailing each man with clotheslines and back elbows. Devitt then attempted to whip Bennett into the ropes, Bennett reversed but Devitt came off the ropes connecting with the slingblade clothesline. Devitt went for the cover but Benjamin broke up the pin at two. Meanwhile, Maria began making her way down the ramp with her neckbrace and sling on, back inside the ring Benjamin had turned his attention to Styles, lifting him up for a suplex but AJ floated over behind Benjamin. Devitt got to his feet and pulled Bennett up with him. Both Styles and Devitt hooked Benjamin and Bennett and nailed both men with Bloody Sunday's! Both men went for cover's but before the referee could begin his count Maria made her way up the steps and ripped off the neck brace and began to scream, while trying to enter the ring, but the referee stopped her. Both Styles and Devitt got up from the mat and made their way over to Maria, the referee could only stop one man, that being Styles. Meanwhile, as Devitt approached Maria, she nailed him with the arm in the sling behind the referee's back. Styles saw what happened and tried to go after Maria but the referee wouldn't let him go. Maria proceeded to remove the sling from around her neck and arm, then pulled out a steel pipe from the sling and tossed it to the ground. The distraction allowed Benjamin enough time to regroup and as Styles turned his attention back to the match and approached Benjamin, Benjamin jumped up and connected with the T-Bone Suplex to Styles and covered him for the 1..2..3!

 

Winner: Shelton Benjamin and Michael Bennett via pinfall

 

( After the bell the referee raised the arm of Shelton Benjamin and Michael Bennett in the air until Maria made her way back into the ring. She proceeded to scream for the referee to get out of her way. She shared a hug and kiss with Bennett before placing herself between both Benjamin and Bennett and raising their arms in victory. The show then faded off the air with Benjamin standing over AJ Styles holding his World Heavyweight Championship in the air. )

Konnor and Viktor then made their way over towards Nick, pulled him up to his feet and both men whipped him into the barricade, sending him head first and flipping upside down before crashing to the floor. Referee's and officials made their way down the ramp and without much persuading The Ascension made their way to the ramp, picked up their tag team championships and held them in the air as they made their way up the ramp and towards the locker room area. The show then faded to a commercial break from our sponsors at "K-Y". After a brief word from our sponsor we went backstage where we were joined by all members of The Empire with Jim Cornette standing in the center and preparing to speak. )



"Jim Cornette": Is it just me, or does The Ascension get more violent as the days pass? These two men never cease to amaze me, taking advantage of every opportunity that presents itself to handle business. I'd like to say they have learned from the best but you people already knew that! But speaking of taking advantage of opportunity, that's exactly what I did this week, when I fired Tye Dillinger! You see The Empire doesn't have time to deal with the crippled so when Dillinger went down with a knee injury last week, I knew right then it was time to cut the dead weight and that's exactly what we did! But even with Tye being taken out, and the number's game shifting, my crown jewel Shelton Benjamin still got the job done and pinned AJ Styles, your World Heavyweight Champion in the center of the ring for the one, two, three! But we are just getting started AJ, you see I sought out for a replacement for Tye, a man that's going to face you live, here tonight, in the main event. Now I'm not going to be like other terrible businessmen and make you all wait until later to find out who he is, infact, you are going to find out right now. Ladies and Gentlemen, the man who is going to completely dominate AJ Styles tonight, the man who is going to soften up AJ and make sure the World Heavyweight Championship will be coming home to The Empire in a couple weeks, Bo Dallas!



( Bo Dallas appears in the frame with a huge grin on his face, like always, and shakes the hand of Jim Cornette. Bo wastes little time beginning to speak. )



"Bo Dallas": Mr. Cornette, it is an honor to be here in IWA, working for you none the less. And I want to start out by saying you have made the right decision hiring me, and I won't let you down. You see I've been all over the world, and the one name that I hear more than any is AJ Styles, they talk about how good you are AJ, and they may be right, but it's obvious you lack one thing. So tonight, after I defeat you infront of this packed house in Dayton, don't get down on yourself, don't get down in the dumps, you will still be the World Champion for the time being, AJ. And after I cripple you, just like you crippled that poor defenseless Tye Dillinger, it'll all be ok, as long as you BO-LIEVE!



"Jim Cornette": That's right AJ, and you know, I'm so confident in Bo Dallas, that tonight, I'm going to let Bo Dallas handle things on his own tonight, and I know how AJ Styles likes to have his buddies from The Bullet Club to interfere in his matches every single week, so to assure that no one gets involved, I am offcially banning any interference and if anyone tries to disobey that order, they will be fired on the spot! Now, after Bo Dallas here get's finished with you tonight AJ, you're going to need to bo-lieve in yourself because in just a few short weeks when your left with nothing, no championship, no main event, no spirit, all that might possibly be left with you is the fact that you bo-lieve in yourself, because the fans damn sure won't!



( Once Cornette finishes speaking, Bo Dallas, with a huge grin on his face, once again shakes the hand of Jim Cornette and makes his rounds shaking hands with the other members of The Empire. The camera then went back to the ringside area for our next contest of the evening. )

"Jim Cornette": Obviously there are some issues that need to be addressed tonight but first I want to start with last week. For some good forsaken reason I thought hiring Bo Dallas to take care of AJ Styles would be a great idea, but...now set your DVR's for this one folks because you've never heard this, and you will never hear these words come out of my mouth again, I was wrong! Hiring Bo Dallas to take out AJ Styles might have been a bad idea, but Shelton Benjamin once again shown why he is the greatest athlete and the greatest mind, next to mine of course, going in IWA today! Now Mr. Benjamin presented a wonderful idea for tonight's main event and since we are just six days away from Best in the World, a pay per view named after Shelton Benjamin himself. Tonight in the main event you are going to see the World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles and The Young Bucks take on the future World Heavyweight Champion Shelton Benjamin and The World Tag Team Champions The Ascension in six man tag team action! Now, the pay per view is going to be stacked this Sunday night with Benjamin versus Styles, The Ascension versus The Young Bucks, but I've also taken it upon myself to add Kenny Omega going one on one with CIMA in a rematch from a couple weeks ago, and from what we saw a little bit earlier, I think it's time we finally crown a IWA Women's Champion, so I'm officially adding a ten woman gauntlet for the gold match. That's just a few of the matches you are going to see this saturday night, now if you will excuse me, I've got to go join the rest of The Empire and get things ready for the rest of the show. I hope you enjoy it, tonight is a night of history, afterall it will be the very last time you see AJ Styles on IWA Slam as the World Heavyweight Champion!


( Jim Cornette laughs as he walks off and the show fades to a quick commercial break from our sponsors at "K-Y". After a word from our sponsors we returned ringside for our next contest of the evening. )

Winner: And NEW IWA No Limit's Champion, Kevin Steen via pinfall


( After calling for the bell, the referee retrieved the championship and awarded it to the new champion, Kevin Steen. Steen raised the championship high in the air for a moment taking in the mixed reaction of cheers and boos. Steen then rolled out of the ring and began making his way up the ramp as the camera went backstage. Backstage we saw Nick and Matt Jackson in the locker room, putting their ring jackets on, after they finished they exited their locker room and began making their way down the hallway but out of nowhere, members of The Empire, including The Ascension, Michael Bennett, and Brian Cage jumped The Young Bucks. The Young Bucks attempted to fight all four men off at first but the number game was no match for them, The Ascension and Bennett put the boots to Nick Jackson, while Cage grabbed Matt by the throat and threw him through a door. Matt screamed in pain while Konnor and Viktor pulled Nick to his feet and nailed him with shots to the gut before grabbing a garbage can and nailing him in the head with it. Viktor and Konnor both grabbed an arm each and pulled Nick up to his knees as Cage grabbed a steel chair and threw it as hard as he could, nailing Nick in the head, wrapping around his head, and busting him open. As the blood began to pour from the forehead of Nick Jackson, The Empire turned their attention to Matt Jackson, who was attempting to pull himself up from the remains of the broken door. Viktor and Konnor pulled Matt to his feet and tossed him into the hall way where Michael Bennett kicked him in the rib cage and sent him rolling down the hall way, Matt continued to move, crawling down the hall way and out into an open area backstage where forklifts and crates were placed. Finally referee's and backstage officials showed up and attempted to get The Empire to leave the area so The Young Bucks could be attended to but they wouldn't have it. The Ascension grabbed Matt Jackson and slammed him back first into a garage door multiple times before yelling for Cage to finish him off. Cage grabbed one of the rolling crates and charged it across the floor, crushing the mid-section of Matt Jackson between the crate and the garage door. Jim Cornette finally showed up and began screaming at The Empire to leave and return to their dressing room immediately. The Empire listened and backed away, leaving Cornette to view the damage that was already done. Cornette's angry look turned into a smile as he saw just how serious the damage was and walked away saying I wonder what they will do now? After Cornette disappeared down the hall way the camera went back to the area The Young Bucks were laying, EMT's and fellow members of The Bullet Club showed up. The Bullet Club was furious, kicking crash cans and asking officials what happened as the EMT's began working on the two injured brothers. The show eventually went to a commercial break as they began to load the brothers onto stretchers. After a brief word from our sponsors at "Marathon Gas" the show went back to the ringside area for our next contest of the evening. )


2. Kenny Omega vs. CIMA

Omega didn't look to be 100 percent into the match in the early going, after what had happened to fellow Bullet Club members the Young Bucks before the match but after Omega and CIMA locked up and CIMA nearly scored a three count after a school boy Omega slid out of the ring to regroup, after the referee reached the count of 8, Omega made his way back inside the ring and looked ready to go.

Omega made it back to his feet before CIMA and caught him with a kick to the shoulder, then attempted a spinning roundhouse kick but CIMA ducked and connected with a bridging back suplex but again only got a two. Both men got back to their feet and nailed Omega with a forearm to the face before attempting to whip him into the ropes but Omega reversed and attempted a leapfrog but CIMA caught him with a sitout powerbomb for a close two count. CIMA argued the count with the referee fora moment before turning his attention back to Omega, and connecting with a few stomps before pulling Omega back up to his feet and connecting with a chop, then another but Omega fired back with chops of his own that sent CIMA backing up into the corner. Omega then caught CIMA with an uppercut and attempted to whip him into the opposing corner but CIMA reversed and followed Omega in but Omega went up and over and hit the ropes as CIMA connected with the corner and backed up, turning around into a flying kick to the chest. Omega quickly got to his feet and nailed CIMA with a standing moonsault for a two count. Omega quickly went out to the apron but before Omega could connect with a springboard elbow drop CIMA got to his feet and dropkicked the top rope, sending Omega crashing mid-section first across the top rope. Omega fell from the ropes to the apron, CIMA quickly rolled out to the apron and pulled Omega up to his feet and proceeded to back suplex Omega on the ring apron. CIMA rolled Omega back inside the ring and made his way to the top rope and attempted the Mad Splash but Omega got his knees up into the mid-section of CIMA. Omega rolled around the ring, clutching his back as CIMA did the same, but clutching at his abdominal region. Both men made it to their feet at the same time, with Omega connecting with a spinning back kick to the gut then attempting a suplex but CIMA countered in mid air and turned it into a small package for a two count.

CIMA made his way up to the top rope with Omega and caught Omega with a headbutt but it looked like it had little effect as Omega fired back with rapid headbutts of his own before following up with a rolling powerbomb that sent CIMA crashing to the mat. Omega quickly got to his feet and pulled CIMA into position and made his way back to the top rope and connected with the 450 splash but CIMA somehow kicked out at two! Omega couldn't believe it and slowly made his way back to his feet and waited in the center of the ring as CIMA pulled himself to his feet using the ropes. CIMA turned around as Omega nailed Hadouken, the double palm strike, CIMA quickly got back to his feet but turned right into Flash Man's Time Stopper, the step up enzijiri kick, that brought CIMA to a knee. Omega looked stunned that CIMA was still partially standing. Omega lifted CIMA back up to both feet and hit the ropes behind CIMA, and nailed the leapfrog into the one handed bulldog he calls Kotaro Krusher. Omega went for the cover but somehow CIMA kicked out just before the three! Omega couldn't help but to argue with the referee on that call but the referee stood by his count and warned Omega of the time remaining in the match. Omega finally returned to CIMA, but CIMA caught Omega in another small package, but Omega kicked out just before three. Omega quickly went to the referee and made sure it was just a two count. Omega returned to CIMA and finished pulling him to his feet and connected with a forearm to the face. Omega whipped CIMA into the ropes but he held on and caught Omega with a superkick as he charged in, Omega spun around holding his jaw, but as he turned back around and attempted to charge at CIMA, CIMA lifted Omega up on his shoulder's and connected with Schwein! CIMA went for the cover 1..2..NO! Omega was able to put his foot on the bottom rope to break the pin. CIMA got back to his feet and the referee stepped in to warn him of the time remaining. CIMA then went back to Omega and attempted to pull him away from the ropes but Omega held on, CIMA fired back with a few stomps to the ribs then the face before grabbing the leg and pulling Omega towards the center of the ring but as CIMA attempted to apply the figure four leg lock Omega caught him in a small package of his own for a near fall.

Both men quickly got back to their feet, Omega charged at CIMA with a clothesline but CIMA ducked, Omega hit the ropes and come off with a sunset flip but CIMA sat down in a pin of his own and held onto the ropes as the referee began the count but the referee caught CIMA holding onto the ropes at two and stopped the count. The referee ordered CIMA to release the ropes but he refused, the referee finally got tired of arguing with CIMA, who looked as if didn't understand the referee's orders so the referee kicked the hand of CIMA, allowing Omega to roll CIMA backwards into a pin but CIMA kicked out at two, and rolled backwards, grabbing the legs of Omega and holding him down in another pin attempt but Omega shoved CIMA's head down, flipping him back into the sunset flip. As the referee reached two, CIMA shifted his momentum, pulling himself up onto the chest of Omega but Omega kicked out at two.

Winner: No Contest via Time Limit Draw


( After the referee made the final decision Kenny Omega couldn't believe his decision and tried to explain that he had CIMA pinned. The referee understood Omega's explaination but he couldn't change the fact that the time limit expired. Meanwhile behind Omega's back, CIMA had pulled himself to his feet. As Omega turned around, CIMA charged towards him and clotheslined him over the top rope to the floor. CIMA quickly followed him out and pulled him to his feet, connecting with a forearm to the face. Omega fired back with a forearm of his own and it was on. Both men continued to trade forearms and punches to the face as they battled around the ring and towards the ramp. The referee followed them up the ramp, trying to force both men to stop but neither man would listen and continued to trade blows until finally more officials made their way out and forcefully pulled both men apart and pulled CIMA behind the curtain to the backstage area. We then went to a video recap of The Empire's attack on The Young Buck's earlier in the night. We then returned to ringside where the announcer's were heard questioning who would step in for the injured Young Bucks after the attack earlier in the night. The Ascension eventually made their way out to the ring and stood in the center of the ring as we waited to see who their opponents would be. )

As the spotlight hit the two men it became clear that it was The Young Bucks limping out onto the stage, one holding his head, the other holding his ribs. Viktor immediately ran across the ring and slid out onto the floor and began making his way up the ramp, pointing and screaming "how the hell are you two still walking? and what are you doing here?" Meanwhile back inside the ring, Konnor turned his attention towards his partner, yelling for him to get back in the ring but Viktor ignored his partner and continued to yell at The Young Bucks and slowly approach them.

Moments later, as the Machine Guns were celebrating their victory, Viktor began to help Konnor to his feet. Viktor pointed towards the top of the ramp, showing Konnor who was to blame for their loss. The Young Bucks were then shown at the top of the stage doing the crotch chop pose. This infuriated The Ascension, leading them to quickly exit the ring and make their way up the ramp way. As they reached the midway point though, The Young Bucks made their way back behind the curtain and to the backstage area. The Ascension then turned their attention towards the video tron, which was showing The Inner City Machine Guns, still at ringside, with their newly won championship belts, laughing at The Ascension. Konnor and Viktor then turned around, which lead to The Machine Guns showing that they were not afraid by making their way aroun the ring towards the botom of the ramp. Both teams exchanged a stare down, but it didn't last long as The Ascension decided it was best to turn their attention back towards The Young Bucks, and they quickly made their way the rest of the way up the ramp and disappeared behind the curtain. The Inner City Machine Gun's music then began to play and they danced around with their newly won World Tag Team Championships for a moment before the camera went backstage where The Ascension was approaching Jim Cornette and The Empire. )


"Viktor": What the hell was that all about? I thought we sent The Young Bucks to the hospital!?


"Jim Cornette": I thought you did as well but I suppose those morons chose not to recieve medical attention. But that's okay....


"Konnor": OKAY!!?? How is that suppose to be okay? They just cost us our World Tag Team Titles!


"Jim Cornette": Calm down and hear me out. It doesn't matter who has all the gold here in IWA, as long as they are apart of The Empire and that's exactly why everyone is going to get what they want, starting tomorrow night. There is no way Ricochet and Rich Swann can be a hundred percent after the beating they just recieved from you guys, that's why their first title defense is coming tomorrow night when they face Michael Elgin and Brian Cage, The Empire's Unbreakable F'N Machines! As for you guys, well when The Young Bucks decide to show their face again, you two are going to take care of them once an for all in a non-sanctioned street fight.


( The Ascension look at each other for a moment with smiles on their face before Viktor begins to speak once again. )


"Viktor": Yeah we like the sound of that. If they thought tonight was brutal, they will be lucky to survive what we have in store for them!


"Jim Cornette": Good, I'm glad we are on the same page, now let's go discuss our strategy for tonight's main event, there is no way in hell I'm going to let anyone throw another wrench into my plans!

Bayley pulled Charlotte off of Paige and began questioning her about why she shoved her out of the ring earlier. Charlotte pushed Bayley to the side and went back to Paige, but before she could connect with another punch, Bayley pulled Charlotte back up off the mat and once again, asked why Charlotte shoved her out of the ring earlier. Charlotte yelled it was an accident but if she didn't get out of her way the next time wouldn't be. Charlotte shoved Bayley back, but before she could make it over to Paige, Bayley grabbed Charlotte, spun her around and shoved her to the ground, yelling "how do you like it?" Meanwhile, Paige began to pull herself back up to her feet, grabbing her newly won Women's Championship.

Paige then raised her championship back in the air while looking down at a fallen Charlotte, laughing, before screaming "This is my house".

Tonight is a night of celebration, as I said last night, Michael Elgin, you and Brian Cage are going to end Ricochet and Rich Swann's championship reign before it even gets started, and when the Young Bucks have the nerve to show their faces around here again The Ascension is going to take care of them once and for all, I don't even want them to be able to walk away from whatever arena we are in, I want them carried out! But enough of the negativity, let's talk about the positive. I've ordered the balloons and streamers, I'm leaving the dancers in anyone's hands but mine, this ole heart just can't hold up for the ladies like it use to but that's beside the point. Elgin, Cage, you guys go stretch and get ready, champ, you go to our dressing room, relax, have some champaigne, some fruit, enjoy the night off.

Both men lock up with Omega taking the headlock, Trent shoves Omega into the ropes, Omega charges back with a shoulder tackle, then hit the ropes, steps over Trent, Trent gets back to his feet and leap frogs Omega as he comes off the ropes. Omega hits the ropes again, and takes Omega down with a hiptoss. Trent strutted around the ring for a moment then turned right around into a hiptoss from Omega, then a big body slam. Omega then hit the ropes and nailed a big knee drop. Omega quickly went for the cover but barely got a two count. Omega took an arm ringer then made the tag to Anderson, Karl and DOC entered the ring, whipped Trent into the ropes and connected with a double shoulder tackle. Chuck Taylor quickly entered the ring but he was sent flying with a double back body drop, that sent him rolling to the outside. DOC returned to his corner as Karl went for the cover on Trent but barely got a two count. From this point forward there was way to much action to call, The Bullet Club was able to get in and display their abilities that made them a house hold name world wide but before they were able to get AJ Styles in the ring CIMA was able to cut Prince Devitt off with a dropkick when he attempted a top rope crossbody. CIMA, Doi, Breeze, and The Best Friends were able to isolate Devitt from his teams corner and slowly pick apart each body part. The tide turned though when Chuck Taylor tried to lure the referee into The Bullet Clubs corner but miscommunication led Trent to enter the ring at the same time, the referee went to get Trent to leave the ring and when Chuck spit in Gallows face, Gallows quickly entered the ring causing Chuck to let out a scream and turn straight into a step up enzijuri kick from Devitt. Gallows returned to his corner as Trent returned to his and the referee began to make the ten count. As the referee reached 7, Devitt dove to his corner making the hot tag to AJ Styles! Taylor reached out tagging Doi and CIMA at the same time and both men entered as AJ springboarded to the top rope and nailed both men with flying clotheslines. AJ then nailed Trent with a punch, then Breeze grabbed Styles by the hair but Styles broke free and nailed Breeze with a pele kick, sending him to the floor. Styles then nailed Doi and CIMA with a clothesline each before whipping CIMA into one corner, then Doi into the opposing corner. Breeze, Taylor and Trent tried to regroup on the outside but as they did, Omega entered the ring, charging across and taking both men out with a flipping senton splash. Styles then nailed CIMA with a flying forearm to the face and attempted to nail Doi with the same but Doi ducked down and sent Styles up and over to the apron. Doi turned around into a step up kick to the side of the head from Styles. Styles then slingshotted himself back into the ring and attempted the springboard backflip into the reverse DDT but as he hooked Doi for the reverse DDT, CIMA ran up behind Styles and nailed a backstabber. CIMA got to his feet as Omega slid back inside. Omega charged at CIMA but CIMA caught Omega on his shoulder's for Schwein but Omega broke free, landing on his feet and shoved CIMA into his corner where Trent leaped up onto the apron and tagged himself in. Omega charged at CIMA but CIMA ducked down and sent Omega over the top rope to the floor. CIMA then hit the ropes and took Omega out with a suicide dive. Meanwhile Trent went for the cover on Styles but Styles kicked out at two. Trent mounted AJ and began nailing him with repeated right hands as Gallows and Anderson squared off with Taylor and Breeze. Anderson caught Taylor with a military press into a death valley driver before helping Gallows whip Breeze into the ropes and nail a double flapjack. As Gallows leaned over Breeze, Doi charged over and caught Gallows with a flying dropkick to the back that sent him flying through the ropes to the floor. Doi then ducked a clothesline from Anderson and attempted a crossbody but Anderson caught him, CIMA slid back inside the ring though and charged over nailing Anderson, sending Anderson, Doi, and CIMA tumbling over the top rope to the floor. Meanwhile back inside the ring Trent lifted Styles back to his feet and hooked him for the Dudebuster DDT but as Trent ran up the turnbuckles and spun around, Styles shoved Trent off, then ran at Trent, connecting with a roll through into a school boy but released the pin and locked in the Calf Killer. Trent fought to make it to the ropes but Styles pulled him back towards the center of the ring. Breeze attempted to make his way over to break up the hold but Omega reached in grabbing the legs of Breeze, Breeze leaned forward still trying to reach out of Styles, this allowed Devitt enough time to climb to the top rope and dive off, nailing the double foot stomp to the back of Breeze's head. Finally Trent was left with no choice but to tape out giving AJ Styles and The Bullet Club the victory!


Winner: AJ Styles and The Bullet Club (Prince Devitt, Kenny Omega, DOC Gallows, and Karl Anderson) via submission!


( After the match AJ Styles and Prince Devitt have a brief stare down and finally exchange a handshake. AJ then shakes hands with the other members of The Bullet Club before all five men raise each others arms in the air in celebration. They then exit the ring and begin to make their way up the ramp as the show fades to a commercial break. After a brief word from our sponsors at "K-Y" we return ringside for our next contest of the evening. )

Ricochet went for the cover but only got a two count.

Ricochet bounced off the ropes again, this time ducking a back elbow from Cage and as he did, he grabbed the arm of Cage and whipped him into the ropes, Ricochet dropped down as Cage stepped over but Swann was there to catch him with a hurricanrana that sent Cage rolling out to the floor.

Ricochet entered the ring and tried to go across the ring to help his partner but the referee grabbed him and tried to make him return to his corner, Ricochet argued with the referee for a moment as Elgin and Cage took turns stomping away at Swann. Ricochet finally returned to his corner, but dropped down to the floor and began to make his way around, but the referee followed him to the floor and again grabbed Ricochet and made him return to his corner, but this distraction allowed Cage and Elgin enough time to roll Swann back inside the ring, grab his legs and pull him crotch first into the ring post.

He immediately got back to his feet and pulled Swann up, hooking him for a suplex, lifting him into the air, Cage held him their for a moment, walking around the ring, finally returning to his corner, where Elgin tagged himself in.

Swann crawled towards his corner and reached out to make the tag but Ricochet was still on the floor. Meanwhile Cage entered the ring, and joined Elgin as Elgin got to his feet. Elgin grabbed the leg of Swann. Swann hopped up on one leg as Elgin and Cage began to trash talk him; out of nowhere Swann went for an enzijiri kick, Elgin ducked and Swann nailed Cage, sending him through the ropes to the floor.

Elgin quickly grabbed Swann in a front face lock and pulled him to the center of the ring before lying down, and synching in the hold. Elgin demanded the referee to check if Swann wanted to give it up but Swann refused, and began kicking his feet against the mat as Ricochet and the crowd began to chant/sing "All Night Long". Elgin responded by gator rolling Swann back and forth, trying to wear him down even further. After a few moments of lying in the center of the ring motionless, the referee lifted the arm of Swann up and it fell to the mat for the one count, again the referee checked the arm and it fell once more for a two count. The referee raised the arm to check for the last time, but as the arm began to fall, Elgin grabbed the arm and held it up, forcing the referee to stop his count, the referee began to argue with Elgin for grabbing Swann's arm and continuing the punishment, but Elgin didn't want to hear it and released the front face lock. Elgin pulled Swann to his feet but he fell to the canvas. Elgin pulled Swann back up to his feet, this time though, he held onto Swann, and slapped the taste out of his mouth, sending Swann staggering back into Elgin and Cage's corner, then collapsing to a seated position.

As The Inner City Machine Guns made their way up the ramp, The Ascension made their way back into the ring and began to argue with Elgin and Cage over who was to blame for the loss. The arguing finally came to a stop when Cage looked at the top of the stage to see Ricochet and Swann dancing to their music, Cage pointed this out to Elgin and The Ascension. Once all four men were looking at the Inner City Machine Guns, they waved at all four men inside the ring and exited the stage as the show faded to a commercial break.

4. IWA No Limit's Championship Match

Kevin Steen© vs. Johnny Gargano

Steen got things started early by kicking Gargano in the ribs as he tried to step through the ropes during his entrance. Gargano fell to the floor before the referee could call for the opening bell and Steen followed him out. Once on the floor, Steen lifted Gargano up and nailed him with a forearm to the face then hiptossed Gargano into the guard rail. Gargano laid on the floor, yelling in pain and clinching at his back. Steen laughed as he face washed Gargano, Gargano attempted to mount a comeback, nailing Steen with a couple punches to the gut, then connecting with an uppercut that sent Steen staggering backwards. Gargano then got to his feet and charged at Steen, but Steen pressed Gargano up into the air and dropped him face first into the ring steps. Steen grabbed Gargano and rolled him back inside the ring and followed, the referee immediately pulled Steen away from Gargano and went to check on him, asking Gargano if he still wanted to go through with the championship match. Gargano insisted on continuing, the referee reluctantly called for the opening bell and Steen quickly jumped on top of Gargano, nailing him with repeated fist to the face before getting to his feet and taunting the crowd, explaining how hes the number one guy in IWA. Steen then pulled Gargano to his feet and whipped him into the ropes, launched him into the air and attempted to hit the pop up powerbomb but Gargano reversed in mid air and connected with a hurricanrana that sent Steen throat first into the middle rope. Gargano slowly pulled himself to his feet and looked around, ran towards the corner, slingshotted himself over to the apron, then to the top rope and nailed steen in the back of the head with a double stomp. Steen fell backwards into the center of the ring, and Gargano followed up with a springboard elbow drop and immediately went for the cover but only got a two count. Gargano argued the count with the referee but the referee would hear none of it. This allowed Steen enough time to begin pulling himself up to his feet, Gargano got to his feet and caught Steen with a chop, then an uppercut before whipping Steen into the corner. Gargano charged in, connecting with the double knees to the chest. Gargano stepped back and attempted a superkick as Steen stepped out of the corner but Steen caught the boot, spun Gargano around, and lifted him up in a back suplex, instead of dropping him though, Steen charged across the ring with Gargano up in the air, and placed him backwards on the top rope. Steen locked Gargano in the tree of woe, Steen then backed away, then charged across the ring and nailed Gargano with the rolling cannonball splash. Steen then pulled Gargano away from the corner and talked trash to the crowd a bit more, befoe making his way to the top rope, Steen went for the Senton Bomb, but Gargano got his knees up, into the back of Steen. Both men slowly got to their feet, Steen charged at Gargano but Gargano caught him with a superkick, Steen staggered back, then attempted a superkick of his own but Gargano ducked under the kick, hooked Steen for the Hurtz Donut, but Steen countered, arm dragging Gargano out of the move. Gargano charged back at Steen, but Steen side stepped him, sending Gargano into the ropes, Gargano bounced off the ropes, and Steen launched him into the air, catching him with the Pop Up Powerbomb for the 1...2...3!


Winner: And Still IWA No Limit's Champion, Kevin Steen via pinfall


( After the bell the referee took the championship from the ring announcer, but before he could present it to Kevin Steen, Steen grabbed the championship from the referee and shoved him to the ground. Steen raised the championship high in the air, then looked over and saw Gargano beginning to stir. Steen let out an evil laugh then placed the championship in the center of the ring. Steen jerked Gargano up off the mat and hooked him for the package piledriver, looking to drop him head first onto the championship but before he could Homicide's music hit and he rushed down the ramp and slid into the ring. Steen immediately released Gargano, grabbed his championship and rolled out of the ring before Homicide could make contact. Once the camera got a good shot of Homicide though, you could see he was holding the trademark fork he took from Abdullah the Butcher years earlier. Owens raised the title in the air while on the floor and pointed back at Homicide saying not tonight, if Homicide wants a piece of him they will do it on his terms. The camera then showed Homicide placing the fork in his mouth, and posing on the turnbuckle as his music began to play. The show faded to a commercial break as Steen began making his way up the ramp. After a brief word from our sponsors at "Marathon Gas" we returned to the show. )


( Once we were back from commercial break, we went back ringside where the ring was decorated in bright red carpet, a podium was placed in the center of the ring along with several tables, decorated, with a bottle of champagne placed in the center of each table. Once the camera made its way around the ring, displaying the decorations, it was obvious what time it was, and Jim Cornette's music began to play. Cornette made his way out onto the stage dressed it a tuxedo, fellow members of The Empire, excluding the new Heavyweight Champion Shelton Benjamin, made their way out behind Cornette. They were dressed in tuxedo's as well, with the exception of Maria Kanellis, who was dressed in a very revealing dress. They all made their way down the ramp, lead by Mr. Cornette, who had a huge grin on his face. Once inside the ring, Cornette made his way over to the podium, where he picked up a microphone and began to speak. )


"Jim Cornette": Ladies and Gentlemen, last night history was made, a moment where you will tell your kids, and your kids will tell your grand-children. That moment was Shelton Benjamin pinning AJ Styles shoulders to the mat, and scoring the one, two, three, and becoming the new IWA World Heavyweight Champion, and bringing the championship home, where it belongs, to The Empire! Now we all could stand out here tonight and share stories, and express our gratitude but there isn't enough time between now and next week's show for us all to speak on those moments plus Elgin and Cage have lined up so many women for the after party, we don't want to keep them waiting. So ladies and gentlemen, get on your feet, and prepare to bow down at the feet of greatness, because it is time to introduce, the man that is no longer the future of pro wresting rather he IS pro wrestling, he is the man that will lead IWA into the future, and make me, excuse me, I mean "us", even more wealthy than we already are. I present to you, the reason for this huge celebration, the NEW IWA World Heavyweight Champion, Shelton Benjamin!!!


( Shelton Benjamin's music begins to play, but before he can appear from behind the curtain, cannon's explode and confetti along with balloons begin to fall from the ceiling. Benjamin then appears from behind the curtain with the Heavyweight Championship around his waist. Once on the stage, he removes the championship from his waist and raises it high in the air as pyro explodes behind him. Benjamin then walks down the ramp, up the steps and enters the ring. He walks across the ring and makes his way up the turnbuckles and raises the title high in the air to a course of boos. Benjamin finally stepped down from the corner and made his rounds, shaking hands with fellow members of The Empire, before making his way to the podium, where he and Cornette exchanged a hug. Cornette then motioned for Benjamin to take his place front and center, which he did. )


"Shelton Benjamin": Thank you guys so much for the ceremony, and the opportunity to stand before my thousands of fans here tonight in Atlanta, and the millions that are too broke to afford tickets to be here tonight, but are watching at home. As my first public statement since becoming the new champion, I want to inform you all that as long as I am champion, you will have no worries, the future of IWA is safe in my hands, and I will give you exactly what you want each and every show, more Shelton Benjamin! And unlike AJ Styles when he was World Champion, I will not fake injuries to avoid stepping into the ring, I will be a fighting champion, unlike AJ Styles, I will not be losing this championship, because I am the best pure, all-around athlete this business has ever seen. I hope everyone in the locker room is watching, because I want these words to sink in, I don't care who you are, if you step into the ring with me, you are no match for me, I will defend my title against anyone, any time, any place, and I will prove to you, and the world, what I, and my fellow members of The Empire already know, and thats why I am the greatest champion to ever step foot in an IWA ring.


"Jim Cornette": Now that you have made your first decleration as World Champion, let's get down to the party. I spared no expense for you champ, and I went out and got you a little gift, as a token of my appreciation, so here you go...


( Cornette reaches into his suit pocket and pulls out a box. He hands it to Benjamin, Benjamin looks at the box, then back at Cornette with a smile on his face. He opens the box and pulls out a gold watch, he smiles as he looks at it, then begins to put it on as Cornette speaks. )


"Jim Cornette": You can ask Bobby Eaton, Dennis Condrey, and Stan Lane about this watch, every champion I have managed always recieved a gold rolex just like this as a tokken of my appreciation. Now I know you're asking yourself how can we top this, how can we top this finest piece of jewlrey made, well Michael Elgin and Brian Cage went out and got you a gift as well...


"Brian Cage": Actually this was all The Ascension's idea...


"Viktor": We thought Michael and Maria got this for the champ...


"Jim Cornette": It doesn't matter, I've seen this gift, more importantly what's "inside" the gift, and well let's just say, Atlanta is none for its finest Gentlemen Clubs, and I found out why they call this place Hotlanta.


( Benjamin get's a huge smile on his face and starts motioning for them to bring on the gift. )


"Jim Cornette": Obviously you're tired of waiting champ, and I don't want to make you wait any longer, guys in the back, bring Mr. Benjamin's last gift on down the ramp and let's get this party kicked off!


( Four backstage hands make their way out from the backstage area rolling out a huge birthday cake, obviously big enough for someone to fit inside of it. Once at the bottom of the ramp they leave the cake sitting, and make their way back up the ramp and disappear behind the curtain. Cornette pulls Shelton Benjamin into the center of the ring and tells him to stay right there. Cornette then motions for all the other members of The Empire to follow him out to the floor. Once they are all gathered around the cake, Cornette pulls the card off the cake and grabs a microphone lying on the ring and begins to speak. )


"Jim Cornette": It says it's from a secret admirer.... Let's just see what....


( The cake exploded in the middle of Cornette's sentence and out popped Brian Kendrick in nothing but a thong! Kendrick leaped out of the cake and took off running up the ramp as all the members of The Empire staggered around dazed, with cake falling off of their bodies. Meanwhile inside the ring Shelton Benjamin paced around back and forth with a furious look on his face. Once Kendrick made it to the top of the ramp he turned on the ear piece and reached into his thong and pulled out a piece of paper, he unfolded it and began to speak. )


"Brian Kendrick": Telegram for a Mr. Shelton Benjamin and friends. It is me, Mr. Kendrick, it's not what you expected it to be, but you're about to get your face kicked in by a Mr. Low Ki!


( Kendrick then waved to everyone around the ring, then turned around and shook his ass, sending The Empire into a rage, Cornette screamed and waved for everyone to get Kendrick. Kendrick looked back and as The Ascension, Cage, Elgin, and Bennett took off running up the ramp after Kendrick, he took off behind the curtain. As The Empire disappeared behind the curtain, chasing after Kendrick, Cornette turned around to face Benjamin inside the ring and as he did, he began to scream for Benjamin to turn around. As he did, Low Ki springboarded from the ring apron to the top rope and nailed Benjamin with a flying elbow to the top of the head. Benjamin then charged across the ring and nailed Cornette with a rolling wheel kick that sent him from the apron, crashing to the floor. Ki then turned his attention back to Shelton Benjamin who was pulling himself back to his feet. Ki ran passed him, springboarding off the ropes and nailing Benjamin in the back of the head with a roundhouse kick. Ki looked around to the crowd, then grabbed Benjamin off the mat and locked in the Dragon Clutch, causing Benjamin to immediately tap out. Ki finally released the hold and grabbed the World Championship, looking at it, then the fans before dropping the title, then looking at Cornette and motioning that he was going to break him, and The Empire in half. Ki then went to the top rope and raised his arm in the air as the fans cheered and the show faded off the air. )

June 23rd, 2015

Charlotte, North Carolina

Attendance: 2,201



( The show kicks off with a recap of last weeks show, which included footage of Homicide chasing off Kevin Steen, The Young Bucks involvement in the World Tag Team Championship Match between The Inner City Machine Guns versus Unbreakable F'N Machines, and finally the ceremony involving new World Champion Shelton Benjamin, The Empire, and the return of Low Ki! The pyro then exploded inside the ring arena, and we went live ringside, but before the announcers can even welcome us to the show a loud "WOOOOOO" is heard and the crowd goes crazy as "The Nature Boy's" music hits. Moments later Ric Flair comes strutting out onto the stage and the crowd is in a frenzy! Flair struts down the ramp and slowly climbs into the ring. Once inside the ring he makes his way over to a producer standing a ringside and grabs a microphone, he makes his way over into the center of the ring and begins to speak. )


"Ric Flair": WOOOOOO! It feels good to be standing back in a ring right here in Charlotte North Carolina, you know they say this is tarheel country but the truth is, if there ever truely was a place that was called "Flair Country" this would be it!


( Flair paused for a moment as the crowd continued to cheer him on. Flair smiled, then raised the microphone up and began to speak once again. )


"Ric Flair": Now I could stand out here all night long and soak in the cheers but there is alot of business I need to take care of, and I don't have a whole lot of time to take care of it. You see I've been sitting at home just like all of you watching the IWA, and it has flurished, I see big things in the future for this wonderful company but thats only if some of the kinks get worked out and thats why I'm here tonight Woooo! Now I could go down the list of problems, and I could call everyone out here, but why do that when I could just call out the one man that could make all of this right. Now the last time I was here I had words with this man about my daughter, and I told him I didn't want to have to come back and see him again but it looks like I'm going to have to. So James Cornette, Woooo! Son! Don't keep "The Natcha Boy" waiting, get out here right now before I have to walk up that ramp and come back there to that gigantic office of yours and show you that at 66 years old, I've still got it, just like I did at 36!


( Flair takes a step back and faces the ramp and waits for Jim Cornette to make his way out, but nothing happens. After nearly a minute passes by Flair begins to lose his patience, he takes his jacket off, and loses up his tie and begins to make his way across the ring. As he steps out onto the ring apron, Shelton Benjamin's music begins to play and out steps the World Heavyweight Champion Shelton Benjamin and Jim Cornette. Flair climbs back into the ring as Cornette and Benjamin make their way down the ramp. Once inside the ring, Cornette demands someone bring him a microphone. He jerks the microphone out of the ring side producers hand and begins to speak. )


"Jim Cornette": Ric, I remember clearly our conversation the last time you were here at an IWA event but for the life of me I don't understand why you still have a problem. You see I invited you here personally, I allowed you TV time tonight infront of your hometown, hell your daughter has a tag team match later tonight, what more could you possibly want? Wait wait, let me guess, you have a problem with one of your five ex-wives and probably need help paying one of those debts, now Ric, we all know I'm a very wealthy man thanks to friends like this man right here, but even I can't pay off the debts all your divorces have put you in. So entertain me a bit Ric, what exactly is it that you want right here tonight?


"Ric Flair": Cornette, I always did find you to be a bit of a jackass, and it seems like all that money your new champion Shelton Benjamin is making you has been spent on all the buffets nationwide! Truth be told I could stand out here all night and make fun of you, and Sinbad but I know my fine friends here in Charlotte didn't pay their hard earned money to see your face, they'd rather see the boys in the back bust their ass and showcase what real professional wrestling is all about. But before I take my leave I have two things to get off my chest, first, I told you to stop putting my daughter on the back burner in the women's division, now you did just that, but what I don't appreciate is you allowing the current Women's champion Paige to come out here week after week and cheat and steal her way to victory and you sit back there in your office and not do a damn thing about it, now I know I can't make matches around here but I think it's in your best interest to change tonight's tag team match and book Paige versus my daughter Charlotte Flair in a Women's Title match right here tonight!


"Jim Cornette": Well your right about one thing that's the fact you don't make matches around here. That job is reserved for me, and me only. But I'll take your offer and counter with this. Right here tonight I'll book Paige vs. Charlotte, but the championship won't be on the line. Instead I'll make this stipulation, if Charlotte wins she'll get her championship match at Heat Wave, if Paige wins, Charlotte is finished, no more championship matches as long as Paige is the champion. What do you say to that?


"Ric Flair": You....


"Jim Cornette": What am I thinking, it doesn't really matter what you think, because I run this company, not you!


"Ric Fair": You're right, you run things around here, for the record I do like your idea, but there is one other thing that I want to address while I'm here. That is, this man right here, the new World Heavyweight Champion Shelton Benjamin! Wooooo! Boy...


"Shelton Benjamin": I'm not a boy...


"Ric Flair": Son...


"Shelton Benjamin": I'm damn sure not your son!


"Ric Flair": Kid!


"Shelton Benjamin": I'm not a kid!


"Ric Flair": And your damn sure not in my league when it comes to being a World Heavyweight Champion!


( Shelton Benjamin loses his cool, and hands Jim Cornette the Heavyweight Championship before stepping up in the face of Ric Flair. )


"Ric Flair": Calm down for a second champ. You see you come out here last week and you said you were pro wrestling, you said you would take on anyone in that locker room back there any time and any place. I admire that, those are big words, but the fact is you haven't proven anything you said. You may remember a little saying I had, that was this, to be the man, you've got to beat the man, and last week a man by the name of Low Ki showed you his cards, and punked you out in front of everyone watching around the world. Now I'm telling you, Low Ki has challenged you. The anywhere, is right here in this ring, the place is here in Charlotte, North Carolina, the time is tonight! So I'm asking you, are you a man of your word, are you the greatest champion alive that you claim to be, what do you say? Do you accept his challenge?


"Shelton Benjamin": Low Ki wants a shot at my champioship? What do you people think? Should I accept his challenge?


( Benjamin pauses for a moment as the crowd continues to get louder and louder with cheers. Benjamin looks around, smiling, then raises the microphone up and begins to speak again. )


"Shelton Benjamin": Seems like you people really want to see it. So my answer is.....HELL NO! I don't care what you people want, or what you people think, and I definately don't care what some washed up has been, has to say. So Charlotte, Ric Flair, and Low Ki, you can take your challenge and shove it! I'll wrestle when I want, and against who I want! But Ric, since you wanted to deliver a message from Low Ki to me, why don't you deliver this message to Low Ki from me!


( Shelton Benjamin drops the microphone and grabs Flair by the collar of his shirt and backs him into the corner, Benjamin goes to take a swing at Flair but Flair ducks and nails Benjamin with a right hand to the jaw of his own. Flair then rips open the button up shirt of Benjamin and grabs the tie of Benjamin, pulling him towards the center of the ring and nails him with a chop, then another chop, Benjamin clutches his chest in pain but before Flair can connect with another chop Benjamin pokes Flair in the eye. Cornette then low blows Benjamin from behind. Benjamin immediately begins stomping at Flair. It doesn't take long for Low Ki to rush down the ramp and slide into the ring. Jim Cornette quickly slides out as Ki grabs Benjamin and begins nailing him with right hands and chops, Ki whips Benjamin into the ropes but Benjamin grabs the ropes and holds on, then slides out of the ring. Benjamin and Cornette regroup on the outside as Ki checks on Flair and helps him to his feet. Meanwhile Benjamin grabs the World Championship and a microphone and hands it to Cornette, who wastes little time speaking. )


"Jim Cornette": I've got a hell of an idea for tonight's main event. Low Ki you want to stick your nose into our business after such a lengthy absense, well after tonight Shelton Benjamin and The Unbreakable F'n Machines are going to send you on a permanent absense I'm going to say you got about an hour and a half to find you two partners and if by some chance you can find you two partners, you and those two unlucky souls are going to meet Mr. Benjamin, Elgin, and Brian Cage back in the middle of the ring!


( The show then faded to a commercial break as Jim Cornette and Shelton Benjamin raised each others arms in the air and began backing up the ramp towards the backstage area. After a brief word from our sponsors at "K-Y" we returned to ringside for our opening contest of the evening. )


1. Homicide vs. TaDarius Thomas

As quick as the referee could call for the opening bell Homicide charged across the ring and nailed Thomas with a leaping forearm to the face that knocked Thomas back into the corner. Homicide began nailing Thomas with repeated stomps to the mid-section until Thomas fell down in a seated position and the referee could pull Homicide back towards the center of the ring. Homicide shoved the referee away and posed for the crowd, beating on his chest. Homicide then went to the corner that was to the side of Thomas, Homicide then charged across the ring and nailed a flying knee to the face. Homicide pulled Thomas away from the corner and went for the cover but only got a two count. Homicide immediately mounted Thomas and began connecting with repeated right hands until the referee was able to pull Homicide off. Homicide argued with the referee for a moment, which gave Thomas enough time to regroup. Homicide turned around and Thomas caught him with a thumb to the eye then an spinebuster. Thomas followed up with a springboard moonsault for a two count. Thomas got to his feet and began stomping at Homicide as he tried to pull himself to his feet. Finally Homicide made it to the ropes, but Thomas was right on top of him, using the ropes to choke him. Thomas finally released the choke and posed to the crowd, then hit the ropes, charging back towards Homicide, out of nowhere Homicide turned around and nailed Thomas with a lariat that turned him inside out. Homicide went for the cover but Thomas got his foot on the ropes to break up the pin. Homicide got to his feet and slowly pulled his elbow pad down as Thomas began to make his way to his feet. Homicide hit the ropes and went for the lariat but Thomas hooked the arm, spun around Homicide, hitting him with a jawbreaker, then popping up with a neckbreaker. Thomas went for the cover but only got the two count. Thomas got to his feet and made his way up to the top rope, but Homicide got to his feet and hit the ropes causing Thomas to crotch himself. Homicide then made his way up to the top rope and nailed Thomas with a flying ace cutter, then popped right up to his feet. Homicide motioned for this to be the end, he lifted Thomas up to his feet, then spun him around and nailed the Cop Killa for the 1..2..3!


Winner: Homicide via pinfall


( After the match, the referee called for the bell and raised Homicide's arm in the air. As Homicide is celebrating his victory No Limit's Champion Kevin Steen ran down the ramp and slid into the ring, grabbed Homicide and tossed him over the top rope to the floor. Steen then grabbed Thomas up off the mat, whipped him into the ropes and nailed him with the pop-up powerbomb. Steen then walked over and grabbed his No Limit's Championship but as he turned around Homicide slid back into the ring. Steen charged at Homicide, aiming to hit him with the championship, but he put on the brakes so fast he slid down as he saw Homicide reach into his boot and pull out the fork. Steen quickly back pedaled and rolled out of the ring to the floor as Homicide was approaching him. Steen slowly backed up the ramp laughing at the close call he had as Homicide looked on with the fork in his hand. The show then went backstage where Dave Prazak is standing by with Jim Cornette. )


"Dave Prazak": Mr. Cornette....


"Jim Cornette": Shut your mouth you little midget and listen to me. I don't know who the hell Low Ki thinks he is, first he has the nerve to ruin my celebration for our new World Champion Shelton Benjamin last week, not only putting his hands on Shelton but me as well, then earlier tonight he gets involved in our business once again, well I promise you tonight we are going to put an end to his dreams of becoming champion before they even get started. Now, Young Bucks you can thank Mr. Low Ki for what I'm about to do right now, you see I know Nick and Matt Jackson are in the building tonight, so Dave Prazak you go find those two little pretty boys and tell them to get dressed, hell tell them don't even worry about changing into their wrestling gear because when we come back from commercial break, I'm not asking, I'm demanding them to go to the ring because they are scheduled effective immediately to meet one of the two greatest tag teams in IWA history in a street fight, NEXT! Oh and tell them if they even think about skipping out on this match, they can go find employeement elsewhere, I have a feeling Vince Russo won't be the only one working at Jiffy Lube!


( Jim Cornette then shoved Dave Prazak out of the way and began walking down the hall way, leaving Prazak with the microphone in his hand and a disgusted look on his face as the show faded to a commercial break. Once we heard from our sponsors at "Just For Men" we returned back to ringside for our next contest of the evening. )


2. Street Fight Match

The Ascension (Viktor/Konnor) vs. The Young Bucks (Nick/Matt Jackson)

The match didn't take long to get under way, as The Ascension was making their way to the ring The Young Bucks come charging from behind the curtain and down the ramp, nailing Viktor and Konnor from behind, sending them both into the ring apron. The Young Bucks whip Konnor into the barricade, then grab Viktor and roll him into the ring. The Bucks lifted Viktor to his feet, whipped him into the ropes and nailed the double hiptoss, then the stereo back handsprings into dropkicks they like to call N-Sync to the face of a seated Viktor. Matt Jackson went for the cover but only got a two count. Meanwhile on the floor, Konnor made his way back to his feet and started towards the ring but Matt saw this and ran across the ring and dove through the ropes with a front dropkick to Konnor that sent him back into the barricade. Konnor regrouped and started back towards the ring but Matt skinned the cat, and Nick dove through his legs with a suicide dive that sent both men to the floor. Matt then grabbed Viktor and whipped him into the corner and charged in with a knee to the face. Matt then hooked Viktor for a bulldog but Viktor shoved Matt into the ropes, and attempted a back elbow but Matt ducked, hit the ropes again but Viktor caught him with a knee to the gut that caused Matt to flip over to the mat. Viktor went for the cover but only got a two count. Viktor pulled Matt to his feet and tossed him through the ropes to the floor. Viktor followed him out and went under the ring and pulled out a steel chair and blasted Matt across the back, causing him to scream in pain. Meanwhile Nick worked over Konnor with stomps to the mid-section before pulling him up and connecting with an uppercut that sent Konnor staggering back. Nick charged at Konnor but he side stepped Nick and sent him crashing into the ring steps. Konnor then made his way around to Viktor and both men reached under the ring and pulled out a table, then slid it into the ring. Both men then lifted Matt up off the ground and pressed him into the air, dropping him chest first across the announcers table. Both men then slid into the ring and set the table up in the corner, but as they turned around Nick dove off the top rope, nailing both men with a missile dropkick. Nick then rolled out to the floor and helped his brother back to his feet, then went under the ring and pulled out several chairs, sliding one into the ring, then handing another to his brother. Both men slid back inside the ring, Viktor was the first man to make his way back to his feet, Matt held the chair up and Nick superkicked it into the face of Viktor, knocking him to the mat. The Bucks turned around to see Konnor getting to his feet, Matt tossed the chair at Konnor, who caught the chair, both men went for stereo superkicks but Konnor ducked, causing both men to miss, Konnor then nailed Nick in the back of the leg with the chair, causing him to collapse to the mat, holding his knee and rolling around in pain. Konnor then threw the chair, causing it to wrap around the head of Matt. Konnor then backed into the far corner and sized up Matt as he began to pull himself to his feet. Konnor charged across the ring, looking to spear Matt through the table but Matt side stepped at the last second and Konnor went crashing through the table in the corner. Matt pulled Konnor back and went for the cover but only got a two count! Matt got to his feet and went to the top rope, he went for the 450 Splash but Konnor rolled out of the way, but Matt was able to tuck his chin, and roll through back to his feet. Matt turned around and charged at Konnor, who was making his way back to his feet, Konnor lifted Matt up in a military press, but Matt slid down the back of Konnor and shoved him towards Nick, and Nick nailed Konnor with a superkick. Nick collapsed once again, clutching at his knee, as Konnor spun around after the superkick and Matt lifted him up and connected with the rolling senton and springboard top rope moonsault portion of More Bang For Your Buck. Matt went for the cover but Viktor broke up the pin at two! Viktor immediately rolled out of the ring to the floor and grabbed a kendo stick from under the ring and slid back in. Viktor started winding up with the kendo stick and as Matt got to his feet, Viktor took a swing but Matt ducked, and nailed Viktor with a step up enzijiri kick. Matt grabbed the kendo stick and nailed Konnor in the side of the head, sending him through the ropes to the floor. Matt helped his brother to his feet and handed him the kendo stick telling him to tee off on Viktor. Nick looked around for a moment and shook his head no, Matt looked confused, but Nick told him to go to the apron. Nick then tossed the kendo stick out of the ring and as Viktor got to his feet, Nick lifted him up for a tombstone piledriver, Matt then springboarded to the top rope and caught Viktor with a piledriver as Nick drove him into the canvas, nailing "The Meltzer Driver". Nick and Matt both sat down on top of Viktor and picked up the 1..2..3!


Winner: The Young Bucks via pinfall


( After the match Matt helped Nick up to his feet and the brothers raised each others arm in the air as they were announced the winners of the contest. The celebration would be short lived though as Michael Elgin and Brian Cage slid into the ring behind them and nailed both with forearms to the back. Cage quickly jerked Matt up off the mat and launched him across the ring with a release German suplex. Elgin slowly pulled him up, then whipped him back towards Cage, and Cage nailed him with a discus lariat, turning Matt Jackson inside out. Elgin then grabbed a steel chair and slid it into the turnbuckles, afterwards he turned around to see Nick using the ropes to pull himself up to his feet, still holding the injured knee. Elgin charged across the ring and nailed Nick with a knee to the face, Elgin then lifted Nick into the air and connected with a running powerbomb into the corner, Nick bounced out and Elgin lifted him right back up and nailed him with the spinning sit-out powerbomb, he calls "The Elgin Bomb". Meanwhile Brian Cage had picked up a chair and after Elgin was finished with Nick, Cage motioned for Elgin to go to the top rope. As Elgin was climbing to the top rope, Cage took the chair and placed it around the neck of Matt Jackson. Cage then yelled for Elgin to jump and break his neck, but before Elgin could leap from the top rope, help, in the form of the IWA World Tag Team Champions, The Inner City Machine Guns come charging down the ramp and sliding into the ring, sending Cage and Elgin stopping in their tracks and going to the floor. Ricochet and Rich Swann checked on the injured Young Bucks as Elgin and Cage helped Viktor and Konnor back to their feet. The show finally faded to a commercial break as Ricochet and Swann motioned for the referee to get more help. After a word from our sponsors at "Right Guard" we returned to the show and saw footage of The Machine Guns, The Bullet Club, referees, and trainers slowly helping The Young Bucks out of the ring and to the backstage area. We then went back to the ringside area for our next contest of the evening. )


3. Non-Title Match

Paige© vs. Charlotte

Even though this was a non-title match, the implications were huge. If Charlotte wins, she receives a championship match at "Heat Wave" but if she loses, she will not receive a title match as long as Paige is the champion. And Charlotte was all business in this one, as the referee called for the bell, both ladies went for a lock up but Charlotte ducked under, and went for go behind into a waist lock, Charlotte then pulled the legs out from under Paige and spun around into a front face lock. Both ladies worked their way back up, with Paige pushing Charlotte back into the ropes, forcing the referee to break the two ladies apart, but Paige caught Charlotte off guard with a boot to the mid-section. Paige then attempted to whip Charlotte into the ropes but she reversed, Charlotte dropped down, Paige stepped over and hit the ropes but Charlotte got to her feet and caught Paige with a hiptoss, then an arm drag, and followed up with a dropkick that sent Paige rolling out to the floor. Charlotte didn't give Paige any time to breathe though, hitting the ropes and taking Paige out with a suicide dive! Charlotte quickly rolled Paige back inside and went for the cover but only got a two count. Charlotte wasted no time getting back to her feet and grabbing the leg of Paige and trying to apply the Figure Eight but Paige was able to shove Charlotte off and face first into the corner. Paige got to her feet as Charlotte turned around, Charlotte charged at Paige but Paige caught her with a drop toe hold and floated over into a headlock, both ladies worked their way back to their feet with Charlotte connecting with some forearms to the ribs of Paige and shoving her off into the ropes, Paige came back with a shoulder tackle, then hit the ropes, Charlotte got back to her feet and ducked down for a back drop attempt but Paige put the breaks on, grabbed Charlotte by the hair and jerked her back first to the canvas. Paige and the referee argued back and forth for a moment over Paige using the hair to her advantage until Paige had heard enough and turned her attention back to Charlotte, connecting with a stomp to the side of the head sending her back down to the mat. Paige pulled Charlotte back up and screamed to her that this is her house, but Charlotte fired back with a chop, then another until Paige raked the eyes and took Charlotte back down with a snap suplex. Paige went for the cover but only got a two count. Paige locked in a sleeper hold, trying to force Charlotte into submitting but she refused and began pounding on the mat, getting the crowd behind her. Charlotte began firing up, working her way to her feet but Paige cut her off with multiple headbutts then hitting the ropes and charging back with a running knee lift. Paige went for the cover but only got a two. Paige got back to her feet and let out a loud scream then began making her way up to the top rope, waiting for Charlotte to get back to her feet. As Charlotte got to her feet, she leaped towards the ropes, hitting them, causing Paige to crotch herself on the top rope. Charlotte then began to slowly make her way up to the top rope, hooking Paige for a superplex and connecting! The referee began his 10 count and as he reached 7 Charlotte went for the cover on Paige but only picked up a 2. Charlotte got to her feet and let out a scream of his own and waited as Paige pulled herself up, Charlotte then charged at her, connecting with a flying clothesline, then another, Charlotte then ducked a clothesline attempt from Paige and nailed her with a big boot to the face. Charlotte went for the cover but Paige got her shoulder up at 2! Charlotte got to her feet and pulled Paige up with her, lifting her up for a body slam but Paige floated over and pushed Charlotte into the ropes, rolling back into a Pat O'Connor roll up and hooked the trunks but Charlotte managed to kick out at 2 and 9/10's. Both ladies got back to their feet, but Paige caught Charlotte with a spinning back kick to the gut, then lifted her up for the cradle DDT, she calls Ram-Paige but Charlotte reversed it into a small package for a two. Again both ladies quickly got back to their feet, but Paige caught Charlotte with a running single leg dropkick, then grabbed her by the arm, pulling her to her feet and began connecting with the short armed clotheslines, but when Paige went for the third, Charlotte ducked under and rolled Paige up in a backslide for the 1..2..3!


Winner: Charlotte via pinfall


( Immediately following the bell Paige made it to her feet before Charlotte and nailed her with a brutal kick to the face. Paige then jerked Charlotte up off the mat and this time connected with Ram-Paige. Paige then demanded the referee hand her the Women's Championship. Paige then stood over Charlotte yelling out "I don't care who your daddy is, this is my house, and this will always be my championship!" Paige then shoved the referee back and exited the ring, making her way up the ramp while holding up the Women's Championship. Meanwhile back inside the ring Charlotte began sitting up, wiping the blood off of her busted lip, and looking towards Paige. The show then faded to a commercial break. After a word from our sponsors at "Marathon Gas" we returned ringside for our main event of the evening. )


4. IWA World Heavyweight Champion Shelton Benjamin, and The Unbreakable F'N Machines (Michael Elgin/Brian Cage) vs. Low-Ki, AJ Styles, and Prince Devitt

On paper, this looked to be one of the biggest main events in IWA Slam history and none of these men disappointed. Once Devitt was inside the ring, he and his partners looked at one another, and immediately charged across the ring and began taking it to The Empire. Devitt and Styles worked together to double clothesline Elgin over the top rope then turned around to see Cage running towards them. Styles and Devitt ducked down, pulling down the top rope with them and Cage went flying over the top onto Elgin on the floor, leaving Benjamin alone inside the ring with his opponents. Benjamin turned around, sizing up the situation he was in, but when he turned back around Ki lit him up with a wicked knife edge chop, Benjamin then spun around into another chop from Devitt, then turned into a stiff forearm to the face from Styles, before turning back around to Ki who pulled back for a chop but stopped and poked him in the eye. Ki smirked before motioning for Devitt to join him. Both men grabbed Benjamin by the head, as Styles pulled the top rope down once again. Ki and Devitt spun Benjamin around and around and around then sent him flying over the top rope but Cage and Elgin was there to catch him, causing them to crash back down on the floor but Benjamin was able to stay on his feet. Benjamin, obviously frustrated with the way things were going, began yelling at Cage and Elgin to get back up that they were embarassing him. Once they were on their feet Benjamin told them to do their job and get in their and take care of business. As all three men turned around towards the ring, Styles, Devitt, and Ki went flying over the top rope with somersault senton's sending all six men to the floor. Ki was the first man back to his feet, grabbing Benjamin and rolling him back inside. Ki stalked Benjamin as he backed into a corner, Benjamin begged Ki to have mercy, Ki looked at the crowd, then back at Benjamin, as he did Benjamin caught him with a boot to the gut then pulled him into the corner face first. Benjamin then spun Ki around and began nailing him with punches and uppercuts, Benjamin then attempted to whip Ki into the opposing corner but Ki reversed, sending Benjamin in then followed up with the cartwheel Tidal Crush kick. Benjamin collapsed, but Ki pulled him to his corner, and made the tag to Devitt. Ki then snapmared Benjamin and connected with a stiff kick to the back, as Benjamin fell back, Devitt slingshotted himself in with a double stomp, then went for the cover but Benjamin got his foot on the ropes to break up the pin at two. Cage then made his way into the ring, trying to get to Devitt but the referee quickly grabbed Cage and tried to push him back into his corner, Devitt saw this and taunted Cage for a moment before turning his attention back to Benjamin who was pulling himself back up to his feet. Devitt grabbed Benjamin and attempted to whip him into the corner but Benjamin put on the brakes and slid, spinning himself around. Devitt charged towards Benjamin, and Benjamin caught him with a t-bone suplex into the corner. Benjamin then made the tag to Elgin, who didn't even bother going for the cover, he jerked Devitt up off the canvas and began delivering repeated backbreakers, after the 4th backbreaker, Elgin lifted Devitt up in a military press and dropped him face first across the top turnbuckle. Devitt fell to the mat and tried crawling towards his corner but Elgin grabbed him, and extended Devitt's arm, mocking his teammates to tag in, then dropped the arm and leaped into Devitt's corner, knocking Styles and Ki to the floor. Both men immediately tried to jumpm into the referee, while the referee was threatening to disqualify them if they didn't return to their corner, Elgin and Cage made the blind tag. Cage grabbed Devitt up off the mat, whipped him into the ropes and nailed a hiptoss into a backbreaker. Cage went for the cover but Ki broke up the pin at two! Cage pulled Devitt up to his feet and delivered a neckbreaker, but held on, holding Devitt in a submission. Even after the massive amount of punishment he had taken, Devitt refused to tap. The crowd got behind Devitt as he started throwing punches to the back of the head of Cage, Cage finally spun Devitt around and nailed an elbow to the back of the neck of Devitt, then hit the ropes, but Devitt ducked the spinning roundhouse kick attempt from Cage and nailed him with a pele kick, sending both men down. The referee began the ten count, as the referee reached 8, both men dove to their corners, tagging in Styles and Elgin. Styles flew in, nailing Elgin with a springboard forearm. Styles got to his feet, ducked a clothesline from Benjamin, then took him down with a powerslam as he come off the ropes. Benjamin immediately rolled back to the apron as Styles continued on the offensive. Styles grabbed Cage, attempted to whip him into the ropes but Cage reversed, sending AJ in, but AJ dropped Cage with the springboard moonsault into a reverse DDT he calls "Phenomenon". Styles then went to work on Elgin with punches to the top of the head, Styles tried to whip Elgin into the corner but Elgin reversed, Elgin charged in but Styles caught him with a boot to the face, Elgin tried to run in once again, but again Styles caught him with a boot to the face, and followed up with a discus clothesline! Styles hit his trademark pose in the center of the ring, calling for the Styles Clash but out of nowhere Benjamin flew in with a springboard bulldog! Benjamin got to his feet and began screaming that's how you do it! Benjamin then turned around into a missile dropkick that sent Benjamin rolling out to the floor. Ki then returned to his corner and waited as Styles began to crawl towards him. Before Styles could reach Ki, Benjamin slid back inside the ring and grabbed the leg of Styles but Styles rolled over and used his free leg to shove Benjamin off. Styles then dove to his corner, making the tag to Low Ki! Ki springboarded to the top rope and leaped over Benjamin, then hit the ropes and nailed Benjamin with a rolling kick to the face as he turned around. Ki then ran across the ring and nailed Cage with a front dropkick that sent him flying backwards into the corner. Ki then turned to face Elgin, who was getting to his feet. Ki charged towards him, and leaped up for a hurricanrana but Elgin pulled Ki back up and nailed him with the spinning Elgin Bomb. Elgin went for the cover but Devitt dove in to break up the pin at two! By this point it was obvious the referee had lost control of keeping track who the legal man was but he refused to throw the match out. Devitt pulled Elgin to his feet and began connecting with forearms to the face, backing him into the ropes, Devitt hit the ropes and nailed a crossbody that sent both men rolling over the top rope to the floor. Meanwhile back inside the ring, Ki approached Cage and connected with a stiff chop, he pulled but back for another, but as he did, he suddenly moved out of the way, as he did Benjamin come flying through the air and nailed Cage with a stinger splash that sent him to the mat. Ki watched as Benjamin backed away from him then turned around into a boot to the gut from AJ Styles, who then lifted him up and connected with the Styles Clash. Styles chose not to go for the cover though, and as Ki made his way to the ring apron then towards the turnbuckle, AJ made his way to the top rope as well. As AJ flew off with a Shooting Star Press onto Elgin, Low Ki dove off, nailing Cage with the Warrior's Way top rope double stomp. Low Ki went for the cover and picked up the 1..2..3!


Winner: Low Ki, AJ Styles, and Prince Devitt via pinfall


( After the referee called for the bell, the camera panned around to see all the bodies laying in and around the ring. After a few moments Prince Devitt got to his feet and helped AJ Styles up and both men rolled into the ring and joined Low Ki in celebrating their victory. The show come to an end and faded off the air with AJ Styles handing Low Ki the World Heavyweight Championship and Ki raising it above his head. )

1. IWA No Limit's Championship Match

Kevin Steen© vs. AR Fox

Steen made his way out to the ring for this opening contest looking very confident, but the action in the early going didn't look as well for Steen. As the referee called for the opening bell, Steen charged at Fox with a clothesline but Fox ducked and caught Steen with a spinning back kick to the mid-section. Fox hit the ropes but as he came off, Steen sent him up in the air, looking for the pop-up powerbomb early but Fox turned it into a hurricanrana that sent Steen out to the apron. As Steen got to his feet, Fox caught him with a shoulder to the mid-section. Fox then slingshotted himself over the top rope and nailed a viscious sunset flip powerbomb on Steen to the floor. Steen looked to be knocked out cold as Fox rolled back inside the ring. The referee began his ten count, and Fox looked as if he realized he can't win the championship by count out so he rolled back outside the ring, causing the referee to restart his count, and Fox began trying to lift Steen back to his feet. Moments later, out of nowhere Steen, who was obviously playing opossum, grabbed Fox by the tights and pulled him chest first into the side of the ring. Steen then got to his feet and rolled into the ring and right back out, restarting the referee's count once again. Steen grabbed Fox up off the ground and nailed him with devestating powerbomb to the side of the ring. Steen yelled out "now that's how you do a powerbomb" then followed up with a kick to the rib cage as Fox attempted to crawl away from Steen. Steen pulled Fox up to his feet and rolled him back inside the ring and went for a cover but Fox barely got his shoulder up at two. Steen pulled Fox to his feet, and immediately hit him with a backbreaker, but held him across his knee, pushing down on his legs and head, nearly bending Fox in half, trying to force him into tapping out but Fox refused. Steen synched in the hold even more, but the more Fox screamed, the more he refused to submit! Fox finally began to mount a come back, throwing his leg up, kicking Steen in the head until Steen was forced to let Fox go. Fox laid on the mat in pain as Steen made his way to his feet, Steen hit the ropes and went for the back senton splash but Fox got his knees up just in time. Steen crawled to the corner and pulled himself to his feet as Fox got to his feet, Fox charged in but Steen caught him with a boot to the face. Steen hopped up, sitting on the top turnbuckle, but as Steen went to stand up, Fox charged over, leaping up, hitting an Arabian Moonsault into a rock bottom type manuevor, he calls the Lo Mein Pain. Fox went for the cover but Steen reached out and grabbed the bottom rope, breaking the count at two! Fox got to his feet and pulled Steen away from the ropes and delivered a stomp, then made his way to the top rope. Fox went for a shooting star press but Steen rolled out of the way, Fox was able to adjust in mid-air, land on his feet and immediately nail Steen with a double knee facebreaker as he got to his feet. All the move did though was cause Steen to stagger back towards the center of the ring, Fox quickly got back up and hit the ropes, but as he approached Steen, Steen launched him into the air, connecting with the pop up powerbomb, he then rolled Fox backwards to his feet, hook him, and connect with the package piledriver for the 1..2..3!


Winner: And Still IWA No Limit's Champion, Kevin Steen via pinfall


( Immediately after the match, Kevin Steen pulled himself to his feet, but before the referee could even raise his hand in victory Homicide hit the ring with fork in hand. Homicide spun Steen around and tried to stab him in the head with the fork but Steen ducked just in time. Homicide then chased Steen around the ring for a moment before Steen finally dove through the ropes to the floor. The referee grabbed Homicide and pulled him back before he could exit the ring. As Steen called for his championship, inside the ring, Homicide shoved the referee back and nailed him in the head with the fork busting him open. Steen saw this, grabbed his championship and began backing up the ramp. Homicide looked over and saw the look of fear in Steen's eyes, then looked down at the referee. Homicide began to smile as he slowly looked back to Steen, Homicide then ran across the ring, slid under the bottom rope and began to chase Steen up the ramp. As Steen disappeared behind the curtain, numerous security guards ran through the curtain and stopped Homicide at the top of the stage before he could go any further. The show then faded to its first commercial break of the night. After a brief word from our sponsors at "Right Guard" the show come back on and we joined Dave Prazak backstage who was approaching Kevin Steen, who was walking down the hallway. )


"Dave Prazak": Kevin, Kevin, do you mind if we get your thoughts on what we just saw before the break?


"Kevin Steen": My thoughts? My thoughts are this. It's obvious Homicide wants a piece of me, I mean, why not? Just a few weeks ago at "Best in the World" he come so close to winning this championship only to have me out smart him and take the title. Now he is threatening my life with a damn fork! I've never been one to run from a fight so you tell Homicide this, if he wants a shot at this championship that's fine, but I'm the champ so we are going to do things on my time, when I want, and where I want, and tonight wasn't the time and Baltimore sure as hell isn't the place, but I hope he was taking notes during my match tonight because he's going to suffer the same fate. Now get out of my face monkey!


( Steen moved Prazak out of his way and continued walking down the hallway as the camera went to a live feed of Jim Cornette, who was sitting behind his desk in his Chicago office.)


"Jim Cornette": I hate to disappoint all my fans in Baltimore, Maryland tonight but as The Empire and myself landed this morning I received an urgent phone call from the offices here in Chicago and had no choice but to catch the next flight back for a meeting regarding IWA reaching new heights in the wrestling world. Now, as important as this matter is, there are some matters that need to be addressed about tonight's show that are as equally important. First and foremost, after the phone call that put me back on a plane bound for Chicago this morning, I had a great idea, why don't I give Low Ki, AJ Styles, and Prince Devitt a much deserved, and much needed night off. Now, I know if I made that call to those men and gave them that news they would have high-tailed it to the arena, so being the genious that I am, I had my wonderful secretary make the calls and make a slight change to the flight arrangements. So you might be asking yourself right about now, where are these three men? Right about now they should be sitting in the conference room of a Holiday Inn in Dallas Texas watching the big screen TV I made sure would be there waiting on them. I'm sure they are kicking and screaming because they are finding out that their emergency business trip was actually just my business plan all along. Now onto tonight's business there in Baltimore, and plans regarding our next pay-per-view event July 19th in Miami Florida. First, for some crazy reason Shelton Benjamin has decided he will grant Low Ki a World Heavyweight Title shot at Heat Wave, and since I don't argue my champions decisions, I decided I would ask him his plan. So let me just lay this out there for you, Low Ki, you will get your championship match if you can make it past every obsticle the champ has in store for you beginning next week, because next week Shelton has booked you in a very special handicap match and he has promised to spare no expense in your opponents. Now Shelton doesn't want you to think he's not a fair man and will just avoid competition until "Heat Wave" in fact its the exact opposite, because after seeing what went down last week, Shelton has requested and been granted a special eight man tag match tonight. Brace yourselves, if you thought last weeks main event was huge, wait until you hear tonight's main event. On one side you will have my army "The Empire", consisting of your World Heavyweight Champion, Shelton Benjamin, Michael Bennett with the beautiful Maria, and The Unbreakable F'N Machines, Michael Elgin and Brian Cage taking on The Young Bucks and the IWA World Tag Team Champions, The Inner City Machine Guns! God, I love my job! Now if you peons will excuse me, I have some major paperwork to read over regarding the future of IWA!!


( The camera then cuts back to some clips showcasing the match ups between Kenny Omega and CIMA, including exclusive footage of several house show events from across the country. The announcers then hype that we will see Kenny Omega in action after a word from our sponsors. Once we heard from our sponsors at "K-Y" we returned back to ringside for our next contest of the evening. )


2. Kenny Omega vs. Chuck Taylor vs. Alex Shelley

As quick as the referee called for the opening bell all three men closed in on each other, teasing a three way knuckle lock but Alex caught Omega with a boot to the gut then nailed Taylor with a punch to the face. Shelley then nailed Omega with a chop, then caught Taylor with a back elbow to the side of
