CARD #116 - INVASION - 01.07.2125
From the Demios Intergalactic Arena, Deimos
We see a gloved fist slam into a locker. The camera pulls back and we see a furious SWARM. He stands seething, face to face with HECTOR. PAYBACK and THANTOS (II) stand nearby, looking on.
SWARM: The undercard?! I’m wrestling on the undercard? Before the women wrestle?
SWARM: Would you like to tell me WHY?!
HECTOR: I have my reasons.
SWARM: No. No that kind of crap doesn’t cut it. Listen I trusted you enough to join this team, you give me the trust to tell my ‘your reason’ for putting me in an UNDERCARD match? I’m better than this.
HECTOR: You are. In fact, I’d say you’re the top tier wrestler on this team.
SWARM (taking a step forward towards HECOTR): Then why. Am I. Wrestling on. THE UNDERCARD?!
HECTOR: Because I trust you. I value your opinion. You’ll be taking on this newcomer Drury has on his team, this alien. I need an honest evaluation of how much we have to fear from him and I trust YOU to give it to me.
SWARM just stares at HECTOR.
HECTOR: If I go out there, Drury will have his goon squad at ringside in a second looking for a moment to take me out. Thantos’s target is Encubus and he is a newcomer. I don’t think we’ll get an honest evaluation due to the adrenaline of his first match. (He turns to THANTOS (II)) No offense.
THANTOS (II) shakes his head.
HECTOR: And Payback...well, I send this wildman out here and we’d get a fair assessment of this alien’s toughness and ability to withstand a chairshot, but no honest analysis of this it’s ‘wrestling‘ abilities. (He turns to PAYBACK.) No offense.
PAYBACK: None taken. You speak the truth.
HECTOR (turns back to SWARM): But I send you out there, Swarm. My experienced veteran. And I know that afterwards I’ll get an honest assessment of his abilities that I’ll be able to use to plan how we’re going to take out Martial Law this year.
SWARM is silent. Then he nods his head.
SWARM: You’re right. You’re right. I see your point. You got it. But I tell you this, I’m not going to be stuck in an undercard feud this year. Got it?
HECTOR (puts a hand on SWARM’S shoulder): Swarm, trust me. My plan for you this year is about as far from the undercard as you can get. But I need to get a line on this new guy.
We’re in SLY DRURY’S luxury box Commissioner’s office. DRURY is talking to two cosmic beings. They are thin and almost transparent, but give off the air of being elderly, yet somehow ageless. They stare silently at DRURY as he looks into a case on his desk. DRURY closes the case.
DRURY: Where’s the other half?
ABROZ: The second half will be paid to you directly at the end of the year.
DIALECTAS: When you have completed your end of the deal.
DRURY: That wasn’t what we agreed on.
ABROZ: Mr. Sly Drury, you are known to us. Being cosmic allows for some more intimate knowledge of the cosmos and the beings that reside in it.
DIALECTAS: And our knowledge of you and how your ‘agreements’ always seem to work out solely in your favor...
DRURY (stands): What agreements are you referring to?
ABROZ: Please Mr. Sly Drury, relax. As cosmic beings we are far above using any knowledge we posess to interfere in the lives of mortals.
DIALECTAS: Yes, the universe has it’s own way of sorting things out. We are merely observers. Only picking sides and allowing things to play out however the universe decides.
ABROZ: But we will not leave to chance our ‘sport’. We must ensure that the arrangement we propose with you is played out exactly as promised.
DIALECTAS: Hence, half the money now. The other half on December 31st. When our challenge is complete.
DRURY regards the two beings for a moment.
DRURY: Fine. But you’d better not renege on your deal. (He sits.) Your show starts next week. We’re renaming it SUPERNOVA: CHALLENGE. It’s all yours.
ABROZ: Excellent Mr. Sly Drury.
DIALECTAS: Let the challenge begin, Abroz.
ABROZ: Most certainly Dialectus.
DIALECTUS: We thank you Mr. Sly Drury.
DRURY: Yeah. Hey Paige?
BEJAMIN PAIGE opens the door.
PAIGE: Yeah boss.
DRURY: Show these two out and post these notices in the locker rooms.
DRURY holds out some papers.
PAIGE: Yeah boss.
PAIGE takes the notices and gestures to the door for ABROZ and DIALECTAS. The two beings motionlessly turn and glide out the door.
PAIGE (to DRURY): Kinda weird they don’t have walk, huh boss?
DRURY: Get out of here Paige!
PAIGE: Yes, boss.
PAIGE leaves and slams the door behind him. DRURY shakes his head then opens the case and looks in again. He smiles.
We’re down at ringside for our first match of the night and 2125!
Swarm d. Symbiosis by pinfall with the Beekeeper Backbreaker - *
Strafe and Phantasy brawl to a quick DOUBLE DISQUALIFICATION. Ringside security had to come down to separate these two after the bell rang. - DUD
We’re back in DRURY’S office DRURY sits looking back and forth between tow people. The camera pans back to reveal that it’s the GALAXIAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS Encubus and Bloodline! The stand, arms crossed, not looking at each other.
DRURY: Now, whatever kind of Family Feud is going between you to, I don’t care. Well, I don’t care inasmuch, as you two are the Galaxian Tag Team Champions and I’m the Commissioner. So tonight, you’ll defend the belts.
BLOODLINE: Against whom?
DRURY: Well, as you may or may not know, this year I have a co-commissioner.
BLOODLINE: We make strange bedfellows don’t we try to work every angle don’t we Drury.
DRURY (pause): Regardless, since he’s still out with an injury, I asked him to choose your opponents for tonight.
BLOODLINE: Let me guess. The Gladiators.
DRURY: Yes. In the main event.
BLOODLINE turns to exit. ENCUBUS follows behind and as he’s about to exit he turns and looks at DRURY. DRURY looks at him and brushes a single finger alongside his nose. ENCUBUS nods and exits.
CUT TO Back down at ringside, RETRIBUTION stands in the ring. Suddenly the arena is flooded with red light and newcomer PAGANAX enters the arena. A small, but very vocal crowd cheers loudly. The rest of the arena watches quietly as the impressive creature makes his way to the ring.
Paganax d. Retribution via pinfall with the PAGAN VOID. - * - Paganax makes short work of Retribution in their brief encounter.
Ensor d. Coven Black via pinfall after the ERUPTION OF THARSIS in a completely unimpressive debut for the vampire. - SQUASH
We are in the Legends of the Ring locker room. The four members sit talking.
SWARM: -- Going to be that much of a threat. He was strong but I was able to...
There’s a knock on the door.
The door cracks open and MANTIS pokes his head in. SWARM signals to the other to hold on a second and crosses to the door.
MANTIS: Sorry to bug you dad. Have you seen this Infinity Challenge notice that Paige posted in the locker rooms?
MANTIS: Well I’m thinking about signing up and I wanted to ask you if you thought...
SWARM holds up a hand.
SWARM: Kid. Last year you made it clear to the entire galaxy, and that includes me, that you can handle yourself in the ring. You don’t have to ask me permission anymore. I trust your judgement.
SWARM: Yeah. You call your own shots now. No need to ask my permission anymore. Just know that no matter what I’m involved in, I’m here for you if you need my opinion. As far as my OPINION on you being in this challenge. Go for it. Kick some ass!
MANTIS gets a big smile on his face and they shake hands.
We’re back at ringside for our next big event.
Anivar d. Paralyze by DQ when PARALYZE slammed Anivar into the guardrails at ringside against the refs warning. - DUD - The match was a brawl for the beginning. After the bell, Anivar was dazed and lying on the ground. Paralyze stood over him and looked down at Anivar’s extended tattooed fingers. Paralyze crouches down and picks one of Anivar’s hands up in his. He looks closely at the tattoos on his fingers. Then he looks over at Strafe who was standing behind him. He smiles. Strafe smiles back and nods. Then he drops Anivar’s hand and stands. Then simply turns and walks away from ringside to a huge chorus of boos from the crowd.
Anivar was helped to the back and we were ready for our next big match up!
Endgame d. Bishop Hell (II) by submission with the ROLLING FIGURE FOUR. - *** - Many were shocked to see a new incarnation of Bishop Hell (II), and several children in the crowd were a bit frightened by the imposing visage but their fears were soon assuaged by Endgame, the hero, came out and was able to pretty much handle Bishop Hell (II). The newcomer did get in some offense, but in the end, Endgame was able to easily score the win.
Encubus started against the impressive newcomer Turmoil. Encubus got a few moves of offense in and then tagged out to Bloodline. Bloodline slipped a bit against Turmoil and when he reached out for the tag, Encubus just left ringside. He simply walked to the back as Bloodline helplessly watched. Turmoil pounced and showed...no...mercy and after moments of punishment, the duo hit their finisher CHAOS IN THE CROWD and easily pinned Bloodline.
The Gladiators, the new GALAXIAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS stood in the ring holding their newly won belts over the fallen body of Bloodline as we...

CARD #117 - 01.14.2125 - SUPERNOVA: CHALLENGE!
From Deimios Intergalactic Arena, Deimos
We see the two comic beings standing side by side.
ABROZ: Good evening mortals.
DIALECTAS: And welcome you are to Supernova: Challenge.
ABROZ: You have heard, yes, of our Infinity Challenge?
DIALECTUS: The challenge we now bring here to the Galactic Wrestling Federation.
ABROZ: Tonight we shall draft two teams, with me drafting with my intuition.
DIALECTAS: And I using logic based on study of records.
ABROZ: Our teams will compete in events throughout the year.
DIALECTAS: To decide the victor between conjecture and reason.
The two turn and look at each other and nod slightly.
DIALECTAS: Our two teams will compete in many matches and challenges against each other.
ABROZ: A win by pinfall or submission will earn the victor two points for his team.
DIALECTAS: A win by disqualification or countout will earn the victor one point for his team.
ABROZ: The team that scores the most points on that night earns their team one extra point.
DIALECTAS: The team at year’s end with the most points, will win the challenge.
ABROZ: And our centuries long battle will continue.
The two turn and nod to each other.
ABROZ: One by one we’ve made our choice.
DIALECTUS: I using logic, while intuition fueled his choice.
ABROZ: The Infinity Challenge has begun.
DIALECTAS: Let us reveal our teams now to everyone.
A graphic comes on the screen showing how the two teams are divided.
ABROZ Bloodline Tanck The Betrayer Vidtek Plethador LEADERS OF THE PACK (Panther Warrior & Malkuth) FRONTAL ASSAULT (Thraxx & Zygon) Deadliest Shann-Ra
DIALECTAS Tricks Gryt Oracle Nitro Scimitar STARS & STRIPES (U.S. Male & American Guy) LIFTOFF (Tristan & Mantis) She-Devil Rotunda
From this we cut down to the ring for our first match!
Deadliest d. She-Devil by pinfall with PURIFICATION. - *1/2 - Deadliest makes a strong opening statement for her team, easily dispatching of She-Devil.
Scimitar d. Plethador by pinfall after a deathjump. - **** - Holy cow! This was the match of these two wrestler’s careers! This competition has brought the fire out in these two and they both shocked the galaxy with a hard fought match. They shocked the galaxy even further by standing up and shaking hands afterwards! The crowd exploded! Plethador even tried to get Scimitar to do the Plethador Shuffle but the knife thrower refused. This match set the right tone for the challenge and Scimitar’s win tied the scoring up early on.
Vidtek d. Gryt by pinfall with a Powerbomb! - ***1/2 - Another great match and these two took each other to the limit.
LIFTOFF d. FRONTAL ASSAULT by DQ when Zygon hit Tristan with a chair as he flew out of the ring at him. - *1/4 - The new tandem of Mantis and Tristan actually worked very well together. They were close to winning several times before the DQ ending.
MAIN EVENT Oracle d. Tanck by pinfall with the DIVINATION. - ** - The former teammates went toe to toe and Oracle shocked many in attendance by overpowering the big man and getting the win.
At the end of the evening, Dialectas led Abroz 5-4 which gives Dialectas a bonus point bringing the Infinity Challenge score after the first night of action to:
Dialectas: 6 Abroz: 4
We cut back to the cosmic beings looking at the score on a holo-vid. They nod to each other.

CARD #118 - INVASION - 02.07.2125
We open on the imposing figure of PAGANAX standing in the middle of the ring. He has the mic.
PAGANAX: Endgame! I’m here. Come face me...NOW!
There is no response until suddenly ENSOR appears at the top of the ramp to a huge ovation.
ENSOR: Endgame isn’t here tonight. But if it’s a fight you want, I’m more than ready to bring it to you.
ENSOR rushes the ring and the bell rings for our first match!
Paganax d. Ensor by pinfall with the PAGAN VOID. - ** - Ensor put up a valaint effort but was soon overrun by the behemoth Paganax! After the match Paganax demanded the mic.
PAGANAX: Endgame. If decimating each of the members of your faction is what I have to do, then I will. I’m coming for you.
PAGANAX storms out of the ring leaving a weakened ENSOR to try and stand.
We’re in COMMISSIONER DRURY’S luxury box office. The GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP BELT sits on his desk. He’s talking to someone off camera.
DRURY: ...set up. So all you have to do is go out there and make sure he loses. Hector cannot move up the rankings to get a shot at this belt. I’ve got to keep him as far away from me as possible. Understand?
The camera pans back to reveal OMEN and NOSFERA.
OMEN: We understand. Come Nosfera. We have a match.
NOSFERA hisses as they turn to walk out and we head back to the ring.
In the ring stand CLINCH and SHOOT, THE ULTIMATE FIGHTERS.
SHOOT: We’re here in the GWF to prove one thing. That we are the most dominant tag team in the galaxy. Right Clinch?
CLINCH: That’s right Shoot. And it won’t be long until those Galaxian Tag Team Championship Belts are around our waist. Right Shoot?
SHOOT: That’s right Clinch! And we ain’t going to take no cakewalk to win them either, like the team that currently holds them did. We’re here to prove our toughness and fight! Right Clinch?
CLINCH: Right Shoot! So why not send out the first team we’re going to ground and pound into a bloody pulp, cause the Ultimate Fighters are....
BOTH: FIGHTIN’ TOUGH!!
There’s a pause and suddenly FRONTAL ASSAULT appear at the top of the ramp and head towards the ring!
ULTIMATE FIGHTERS d. FRONTAL ASSAULT by pinfall when Clinch hits Thraxx with DEADLY SHADOWS. - *1/4 - The ULTIMATE FIGHTERS look good in their debut match, picking up a strong win against a tough team.
We’re in Legends of the Ring’s locker room. SWARM and PAYBACK talk.
SWARM: ...frustrating as all get out.
PAYBACK: I understand, but we went into this agreement, knowing that he had a plan. We didn’t know WHAT the plan was exactly, but we trusted him enough to trust he’s got one.
SWARM: Yeah, I know.
PAYBACK: Look, Swarm, you know I’ve got your back. Whatever happens. You don’t like the way things are going, make the call and I’m behind you, 100%.
SWARM: Thanks, man. I just--
The door opens and HECTOR, THANTOS (II) and SULTANA enter the room.
HECOTR: Okay, here’s the plan for tonight. Drury’s afraid. He’s put me in a match against Nosfera, so I have that to deal with.
SWARM: Good luck.
HECTOR: Thanks. “Thantos” has Encubus next. “Thantos”, your is to keep Encubus off his game. Keep him focused on you.
THANTOS (II): Got it.
HECTOR: Sultana. You have a non-title match against Mother Superior. I know she’s a tough egg to crack but if we put get her worried about her belt, that’ll get her complaining to Drury and keep him scattered. A win tonight would be well met.
SULTANA: I’m going to make that witch squirm.
HECTOR: Good. Payback, I’ve booked you in a match against Patch. Can you handle him?
PAYBACK: You kidding, I’ll poke his other eye out. Heh. (He cracks his knuckles.) With a table.
HECTOR: Excellent. Looks like we’re set. Good luck tonight.
SWARM: Whoa, wait a minute. We’re not ‘all set’. What’s the ‘plan’ for me?
HECTOR: The plan for you, right now is just to sit tight.
SWARM: Sit tight?!
SWARM: This is crap! I’m the best wrestler on this squad and I’m being wasted.
HECTOR: You are NOT being wasted! You are a major piece in this game I’m playing with Drury and I have to wait until the precise moment to play you to do the most damage!
SWARM fumes the calms down.
SWARM: You wait too long Hector and this ‘piece’ might not be here for you to ‘play’.
HECTOR: Look, I understand and I appreciate your concerns. It’s all part of a plan. Turst me.
SWARM stares at HECTOR for a moment.
HECTOR: Good. Okay, “Thantos” let’s go. Sultana you accompany him. I’ll watch from the audience.
The three of them exit. The door closes. SWARM punches a locker.
Thantos (II) d. Encubus by submission via THE MASTERLOCK. - * - Encubus was sufficiently off his game and Thantos (II) easily took charge and won the match. Afterwards Thantos (II) and Sultana mocked Encubus as he slunk back to the locker rooms. Hector came out to congratulate them and also prepare for his match that was next.
We’re back stage in Covert Operation’s dressing room. HAVOC stands talking to ANIVAR and DARK MENACE.
ANIVAR: ...can’t believe I let him get to me!
MENACE: It’s fine. Don’t worry. It’s in the past.
ANIVAR: And what was with him looking at my tattoos and nodding? I need to get my hands on him again!
MENACE: And you will. But tonight Havoc gets The Overmaster. And I need you focused on commanding the Sleeper Cell!
ANIVAR: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m good. Sleeper Cell will be there. Just give the signal.
MANACE: Havoc. You set.
HAVOC: To end the Gladiator reign of dominance. Heh. Anytime.
GWF WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP NON-TITLE MATCH Mother Superior d. Sultana via pin with SERPENTS OF HYDRA. - ***1/2 - Great back and forth match. Sultana came close to winning several times, but Mother Superior pulled out the victory.
Payback d. Patch by DQ when Drury’s Security Squad interfered in the match on behalf of Patch. - ***1/2 - This was an all out brawl! These two men tore into each other and it looked as if Payback would have the upper hand! That is until Drury sent in the Security Squad and one of them cold cocked Payback with the butt of his rifle in view of the ref who had no choice but to call a DQ. As Patch left the ring with the security squad around him, Payback grabbed the mic.
PAYBACK: Patch, you think you’re tough yet you need these clowns to help you. You know that I had you tonight. So I’m going to make it easy for you. You and me. Stormfront. In one of your, what you call it? Street Suicide matches! What do you say?
PATCH thinks for a second and then smiles and nods.
PAYBACK: You think you’re the definition of tough. But at Stormfront you’ll find out the definition of EXTREEEEEEME!
The crowd cheers loudly as PATCH exits.
MAIN EVENT Havoc d. Aethran Overmaster by DQ when Overmaster refused to stop grinding Havoc’s face into the guardrails at ringside! - **1/2 - After the match, Overmaster continued to wail on Havoc which brought out Anivar, The Ultimate FIghters and the Sleeper Cell! This brought out Paralyze, Rush, Turmoil and Strafe! A huge brawl ensued and it’s this we see as the whole show...
DIALECTUS: Well met dear mortals once again we convene.
ABROZ: You join us once again as we step closer to the end.
DIALECTUS: Of this chapter of the battle that has raged for eons.
ABROZ: Between logic and intuition.
The two turn and nod to each other.
DIALECTUS: Currently logic has taken the lead.
ABROZ: Only by two points it has indeed.
DIALECTUS: Let us to that add some points more.
ABROZ: From the battles tonight of which there are four.
The two cosmic beings nod to each other and we cut to the ring.
Shann-Ra d. Rotunda via pinfall with the MACHETE. - * - Shann-Ra picks up 2 points for Abroz.
The Betrayer d. Notro via pinfall with BLACK BETRAYAL. - 1/2 - Betrayer helps his team with two more points.
STARS & STRIPES d. LEADERS OF THE PACK by pinfall when American Guy hits Panther Warrior with AMERICAN FIREPOWER. - * - STARS & STRIPES gets Dialectus his first points of the evening.
In an unscheduled appearance, Plethador comes to ringside and asks for the mic. The crowd is cheering wildly. He waves and does hints of his Plethador Shuffle. He then motions for the crowd to quiet down a bit.
PLETHADOR: Thank you, thank you good people. You know, I completely understand that pressure inherent in being the Galaxy’s most charismatic athlete.
Crowd cheers loudly.
PLETHADOR: I know. I know. Thank you. You know, one of my responsibilities is to come out here and entertain the pants of you people. Settle down ladies.
PLETHADOR: And I think on the last episode of SUPERNOVA: CHALLENGE, I did just that. I wrestled what might have been the match of my career.
Loud cheer from the crowd.
PLETHADOR: But you know what? I didn’t do it alone. I had some...help. And I like to bring the person who helped me out here now. Scimitar, get out here.
Huge cheer from the crowd, they are eager to see where Plethador is going with this. Scimitar does not make his way out of the locker room.
PLETHADOR: Oh now, come on, get out here buddy. Come on folks, don’t you want to see my good friend Scimitar out here?
Crowd cheers louder. Scimitar appears at the top of the ramp. He looks skeptical but his arrival gets him probably the biggest cheer of his career.
PLETHADOR: There he is. There he is. Hey pal. Now look, I know we’ve been feuding for years. And I know we’re on opposite teams here on this Infinity Challenge thing. But even you, my sworn enemy, have to admit, we captured some lightening in a bottle out here last time. Didn’t we folks?
Huge cheer from the crowd. Scimitar stands with his arms crossed, but he does give a slight nod.
PLETHADOR: So here’s what I’m proposing, Scimitar. I’m proposing we go ask Abbadaz and Diddleus...wait...Albius and Diadacticus...Alioicious and Dinecticus? Oh, you know the two guys running this whole rigamarole....
PLETHADOR: I propose we go ask those two guys, if you can I can come out here and do what we did last time on a grander scale.
Scimitar looks at Plethador, obviously not quite understanding.
PLETHADOR: I propose that you and I, as part of the Infinity Challenge have our very own Fatal Showdown!
Crowd cheers loudly at this.
PLETHADOR: That’s right. That’s right. Except fatal is a bit too extreme a word I think. I mean heck, Wolf and Monolith had a Fatal Showdown last year and they are both still alive. Well, Monolith’s hanging in there, but you know what I’m saying. So anyway, long story short, Plethador vs. Scimitar, as part of the Infinity Challenge, in a NON-FATAL SHOWDOWN!
Crowd cheers loudly! They are eating this up.
PLETHADOR: So what do you say Scimmy? Heck I’ll even let that last match count as your first victory! I’m one behind. Eeeek! Of course, we have to clear it with Amos and Dandy, first, but if they say, “Yes.” What says you?
The crowd falls silent as all eyes fall on Scimitar. Scimitar looks directly at Plethador. He smirks. Then, slowly, he nods his head yes!
The crowd ERRUPTS! Plethador raises his arms and THE ONE’S IN THE WATER begins to play and Plethador breaks into his shuffle! Scimitar shakes his head and walks back stage! Plethador leaves the ring, high webbing fans as he makes his way back stage. Everyone is wondering with Abroz and Dialectus will allow this Non-Fatal Challenge!
MAIN EVENT Bloodline d. Tricks via DQ when Tricks refuses to bring the action back into the ring. - *1/2 - Tricks, eager to get the win for his team, gets a little wild and winds up getting DQ’d. Bloodline was obviously a little frustrated at his first solo outing since the breakup of DIVIDED WE FALL.
ABROZ: 5 DIALECTUS: 2
Abroz’s win gives his team an extra point and brings the total scores to...
ABROZ: 10 DIALECTUS: 6
In just one night, Abroz’s team goes from being down by two to ahead by four! After the scores are revealed, we cut back to Abroz and Dialectus.
DIALECTUS: My friend it seems you’ve jumped ahead.
ABROZ: Proving that intuition is not dead.
DIALECTUS: Logic though will soon gain ground.
ABROZ: Perhaps that we’ll see, next time ‘round.
The two beings nod at each other.
ABROZ: And now mortals, we say farewell.
DIALECTUS: We shall return soon with more of the...

From Demios Intergalactic Arena.
We cut to STARS & STRIPES
AMERICAN GUY: Whoa ho! Look who’s here!
U.S. MALE: That’s right, functioning better than ever, it’s STARS & STRIPES and tonight we’ve got a one night reprieve from the Infinity Challenge and we aren’t wasting it!
AMERICAN GUY: Turmoil, Rush, prepare to have your reign abruptly ended by STARS & STRIPES!
U.S. MALE: Your soon to be new Galaxian Tag Team Champions!
We cut to THE GLADIATORS
Rush & Turmoil stare at the camera, the belts over their shoulders. They say nothing.
We cut to the cosmic beings Abroz and Dialectus.
ABROZ: The Infinity Challenge continues even tonight.
DIALECTUS: And so continues the game between logic and intuition.
ABROZ: Tonight out teams will meet in matches, three.
DIALECTUS: The winners of which we soon will see.
The two beings turn and nod at each other.
We cut to Sultana.
SULTANA: Mother Fraud, I’m getting sick and tired of seeing that belt around your waist! It’s about time I took it from you. And how about that mask as well. Tonight, Mother Superior, you...will...lose.
We cut to Mother Superior.
MOTHER SUPERIOR: How many times do I have to beat you? How many times do I have to hit you with the Serpents of Hydra and pin you for the one...two...three? Tonight, I’m going to make it, the last time.
We cut Havoc & Anivar.
ANIVAR: Ha ha! Tonight Paralyze, I get my hands on you and it is not going to be pretty because this time I’ve got back up!
HAVOC: Overmaster, scores will be settled tonight and when the dust clears Aethra may just have a brand new leader.
We cut to Paralyze and Aethran Overmaster.
PARALYZE: Anivar. It’s so easy to be tough isn’t it? All you need to do is use a needle and some ink on your fingers and you’re an instant tough guy. Mark my words Anivar, by the end of tonight, we’ll see how tough you really are.
OVERMASTER: Havoc. You are nothing but a bug that I will silence tonight.
We cut to Paganax.
PAGANAX: Endgame, again you avoid me. You run like a frightened child. That’s fine. I’ll go through yet another of your teammates. If I have to go through ever single wrestler in this fed to get to you. I will! Endgame, you are my goal.
We cut to Tauran holding the Interplanetary Belt.
TAURAN: Paganax, your biggest mistake is not focusing on what’s immediately in front of you! Mainly, me. I’ve never been in better shape and my years of experience are going to lead to one thing...your downfall!
We cut to Patch.
PATCH: Payback, I’m sick and tired of hearing everyone saying how hardcore you are. Tonight you step into my world, the streets! Tonight you’re going to commit suicide! STREET SUICIDE!
We cut to Payback.
PAYBACK: Patch, when I’m through with you tonight, you’ll need a patch on both sides of your head! A Street Suicide match may be ‘your’ match but when the action goes outside the ring, you step into MY world! The world of hardcore PAIN!
We cut to Retribution.
RETRIBUTION: Ha! Tonight is my night! My once in a lifetime chance to win the Galaxian Championship. And the icing on the cake it means I will finally be getting my hands on you Drury. Time to get a little RETRIBUTION for the way you treated me last year! Ha ha haaa!
We cut to Sly Drury.
DRURY: Retribution, you have a title shot tonight for one reason. I run this fed. Last year I had to listen to you whine and basically give me a headache when you were a part of Martial Law. Tonight I have free reign to chop you down to size and put you in your place and remind you who is in charge. You? Galaxian Champion? Heh. Right.
THe opening theme plays and we cut down to the ring and the crowd is standing for tonight’s card!
INFINITY CHALLENGE MATCH #1 Shann-Ra d. She-Devil via pinfall with MACHETE. - ***1/2 - A great opening match and Abroz picks up two points for his team.
INFINITY CHALLENGE MATCH #2 LIFTOFF d. FRONTAL ASSAULT vial pinfall after I CAN SEE YOU. - *1/4 - The young team of Mantis and Tristan pick up a huge win against FRONTAL ASSAULT and pick up two points for Dialectus.
INFINITY CHALLENGE MATCH #3 Bloodline d. Tricks via DQ after Tricks whips Bloodline into the guardrail against the referee’s warnings. - ***1/2 - A wild brawl breaks out after the bell and members of both Infinity Challenge teams ran out to separate the two.
Once things are settled down the holo-screen flashed the final tally for the night for the night...
ABROZ: 3 DIALECTUS: 2
Because this is not a full night of Infinity Challenge action, there are no bonus points for winning the night. So this makes the current scores...
ABROZ: 13 DIALECTUS: 10
This wraps up the Infinity Challenge portion of the evening and now we move onto our other matches but first we cut to...
LEGENDS OF THE RING LOCKER ROOM
We see Hector talking to the members of Legends Of The Ring.
HECTOR: Payback, tonight is a must win.
PAYBACK: Not a problem. I can handle Patch. This is my type of match.
HECTOR: Good. Sultana, it goes without saying that you winning the belt tonight would help things along.
SULTANA: That belt is as good as mine. Tonight I’m not accepting anything less than a win.
HECTOR: That’s the spirit. And I will take out dispatch of the nuisance Nosfera that Drury sent after me. We’re all set then.
A suddenly chair slams against the lockers. The camera pulls back to show SWARM in HECTOR’S face.
SWARM: We’re all set?! We’re all set?! This is unbelievable. Once again, I’m NOT on the card!
HECTOR: It’s not part--
SWARM: Don’t you DARE give me that PLAN crap! I’m sick to death of it!
HECTOR: When you joined this team you agreed to follow my plans to take down Drury.
SWARM: So far I’ve been doing a whole lot of nothing! And again tonight I’m doing a whole lot of NOTHING!
HECOTR: After tonight my roadmap will be more clear. I wish I could tell you more but with Drury’s spies everywhere. I can’t risk it getting out.
SWARM: So again, we have to blindly trust you but you don’t have the decency to trust us in return. How is that being a ‘team’?
HECTOR: You just have...
SWARM: Don’t...say...it. You are on THIN ice...bear.
HECTOR: Understood...bee. In time all shall be revealed.
There is a few tense moments in the room. After a moment, we cut back to the ring for our next match.
TITAN DEATH MATCH Phantasy d. Strafe via pinfall with SWEET SUICIDE. - ***1/2 - A brutal match, but Phantasy pulls out the win.
Bishop Hell (II) d. Ensor via pinfall after HELLFIRE. - * - Bishop Hell (II) easily took care of Ensor in this short match.
SLY DRUY’S LUXURY BOX OFFICE
We cut to Drury’s office where the Commissioner is talking to Overmaster.
DRURY: It’s just not done. The Galaxian Champion always wrestles in the main event.
OVERMASTER: Not tonight. Tonight my grudge match with Paralyze versus Havoc and Anivar goes last.
DRURY: ...The main event is always...
OVERMASTER: You’ve hand picked your opponent. You’re wrestling Retribution because you know you can beat him. As co-commissioner I say the match that will be the most explosive, closes the show.
Drury stares up at Overmaster.
OVERMASTER: Unless you’d like me, as co-commissioner, to choose a new opponent for you to wrestle in the main event. A bear perhaps?
DRURY: No, no. Fine. Your match will close the card. But it better be as explosive as you say.
OVERMASTER: Trust me. It will be. I want to go over a few more details for it though.
DRURY: Like what?
OVERMASTER: Like your Security Squad. As co-commissioner, I can give them marching orders correct?
Drury stares up at Overmaster.
DRURY: What do you have in mind.
Before Overmaster can speak, we cut back down to ringside for our next match.
TITAN DEATH MATCH Nosfera d. Hector The Holy Brown Bear via pinfall with the SPRING HEEL KICK. - ** - Nosefera handled Hector pretty easily in this one on one match surprising many by not resorting to his DEMON’S BREATH though it’d be legal.
After the match we cut back to the LEGENDS OF THE RING Locker Room and Swarm watches on a monitor and shakes his head.
STREET SUICIDE MATCH Patch d. Payback via pinfall with WALK THE WALK. - ***** - An amazing match. Both men tore into each other in and out of the ring. Bother were a bloody mess by the end of the match. Patch hit Walk The Walk after Payback missed a Suicide Dive out of the ring to pick up the win!
GWF WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Mother Superior and Sultana battle to a DOUBLE DQ when the two of them spill out of the ring and refuse to stop tearing into each other. - DUD - Mother Superior retains her belt but this rivalry is FAR from over!
GWF INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Paganax d. Tauran via pinfall with PAGAN VOID. - ** - Paganax just completely destroys Tauran to become the new GWF INTERPLANETARY CHAMPION! The ref handed Paganax the belt and he just threw it down and went to the nearest camera and screamed into it.
PAGANX: Endgame! There’s no one left! You...are...next!
GWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH GLADIATORS d. STARS & STRIPES pinfall when Turmoil pins American Guy after CHAOS IN THE CROWD. - *3/4 - Rush and Turmoil easily dispatch of STARS AND STRIPES in their first title defense. The two men celebrate by holding the belts aloft. Rush grabs the mic.
RUSH: The Aethran era of dominance is well underway. This, is only the beginning.
GWF GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Sly Drury d. Retribution via pinfall with the BACK STABBER. - *1/2 - Drury takes easy advantage of Retribution after a thumb to the eye. Drury retains his GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP.
It’s time now for the Main Event! Anivar and Havoc are out first to huge cheers. Aethran Overmaster and Paralyze hit the ring in full war regalia. Including Rylock Axes and large ceremonial war daggers. The ref spent extra time making sure the two were completely weaponless before the match began.
MAIN EVENT Aethran Overmaster & Paralyze d. Anivar and Havoc by pinfall when Paralyze hit Anivar with PERMANENTLY PARALYZED. - **** - This one was wild from the start seeing both the SLEEPER CELL and ULTIMATE FIGHTERS interfere. The ref sent all from ringside and the match continued back and forth until Paralyze hit Anivar with his finisher and got the win.
After the bell rang to end the match, Overmaster threw Havoc out of the ring and into the guardrails. He then took a chair and smacked Havoc, full force, with a chair, knocking him out cold. He threw the chair into the ring where Paralyze was set up to perform another PERMANENTLY PARALYZED and he did so right onto the chair! Anivar was out too.
The ULTIMATE FIGHTERS charge ringside but were blind sided out of nowhere by Rush and Turmoil who brawled with the two at the end of the aisle. The champs slammed Shoot and Clinch into the guardrails and began smashing them with chairs, knocking them out cold as well. Paralyzed yelled some instructions to Strafe who looked under the ring for two long sets of chained shackles and she threw them up into the ring to Paralyze and the Overmaster who now joined him standing above Anivar.
The two took the shackles and bound Anivar’s legs. They tossed the ends to Strafe who wrapped them around the ringpost. They then shackled Anivar’s wrists together and Strafe tied those ends to the ringpost diagonal from the other one. Anivar was now chained, face down, with his legs shackled and his wrists shackled above his head.
Overmaster stood towering above Anivar and nodded to Paralyze who left the ring and grabbed the microphone and one of the ceremonial war daggers and stalked back into the ring.
Paralyze handed over the mic to Overmaster.
OVERMASTER: Anivar. The Enforcer. Didn’t do much ‘enforcing’ tonight did you? In fact, you fell, weakly to the full might of Aethra. You know on Aethra if you aren’t as tough as you claim to be, you get punished. So that’s what shall happen tonight.
Overmaster looks down and steps on the backs of Anivar’s wrists, flattening Anivar’s hands on the mat. He holds the mic out for Paralyze to speak.
PARALYZE: Anivar! Marking your fingers with a needle and ink does NOT make you tough. You show you are tough by actually being tough. On Aethra we wear war paint when we go into battle. This is done on ceremony. We could easily go into battle without it and still be as dominating. You think these primitive marks on your fingers make people intimidated of you because you spent a little time getting a needle repeatedly jammed into your fingers. Tattoos prove nothing. It takes bold actions to prove you’re tough. Bold actions such as this.
Overmaster dropped the mic as Paralyze dropped to his knees. Overmaster leaned forward putting more pressure on Anivar’s wrists, flattening out Anivar’s hands on the mat even more. Paralyze grabbed the fingers on the right hand of Anivar, and pushed them all together. He slowly pressed the blade down into the flesh of Anivar’s fingers right beneath the letters of Anivar’s tattoos. This brings Anivar to imeediately and he begins screaming in complete agony. The Overmaster steps down harder on his wrists and the delivers a swift kick to the side of Anivar’s head knocking him cold again.
Paralyze drags the knife up Anivar’s fingers, essentially filleting the skin off the bone. Once he slices under the length of the letters he withdraws the blade and slices down near the top of the letters slicing the skin free from the bone. Paralyze places each piece of skin in a small pouch. Blood pours out of Anivar’s hand.
At this point, four members Sleeper Cell charge down the aisle and suddenly from behind them several shots ring out and the Sleeper Cell members drop suddenly, stunned by unseen stun guns from around the arena. Swarm and Ensor charge the ring as well and are immediately stunned as they appear.
Paralyze momentarily looks up, then back down and slides the fingers on Anivar’s left hand together. He places the knife blade down on the bottom of the letters on the left hand and drives the blade in to the bone. He again moves the blade in a sawing motion under the letter, again filleting the skin to the bone. He then finishes the surgery by severing the flesh and placing the pieces of skin in the pouch which which is now, like the mat under Anivar’s hands, drenched with blood. The crowd is sickly silent with these actions.
Paralyze stands and looks at Overmaster who removes his foot from Anivar’s wrists. The two begin laughing. The crowd violently begins to boo them. Paralyze pulls the draw stings of the pouch closed and attaches it to his belt. He looks down at Anivar and yells at him “Who’s the ‘enforcer’ now Anivar?” Paralyze wipes the knife on his leg and he and Overmaster exit the ring and join Strafe. As they exit they turn and look at Havoc out cold. They join Rush and Turmoil at the end of the aisle and they all exit the arena.
The camera zooms in on the bloodied hands of Anivar, wet, raw, bone exposed as we...

From Demios Intergalactic Arena, Deimos
(We open with a close up of Anivar. He is lying in a hospital bed, motionless. His hands are submerged in healing tanks on either side of the bed. Anivar's head is heavily bandaged. Tubes run his arms and head. A faint beeping can be heard from the heart scanner.)
SUPER: Earlier Today
(The camera pulls back to show us that we are looking at this image on a holoscreen in the press room at the arena. BENJAMIN PAGE stands at the podium.)
PAIGE: Ladies and Gentlemen, fans of the GWF. This morning we have an update on the condition of Anivar, plus a statement on the actions that will be taken as a result of this attack. First, to update you all on the condition of Anivar, here is co-commissioner of the GWF...ahem...the Aethran Overmaster.
(There is a disgusted murmur that runs through the press room as Overmaster comes out the door and steps to the mic. Overmaster looks around, enjoying the uncomfortable tension in the room.)
OVERMASTER: As you can see by this footage shot earlier today from a hospital on Equuleus, Anivar has sustained major injuries. He is currently listed in critical condition and is in a medically induced coma. (Overmaster cracks a sickening smile.) Doctors estimate he will be out of action until 2126 at the earliest. You will be updated should his status change.
(Overmaster steps away from the mic. Paige steps forward.)
PAIGE: And here to speak on the disciplinary actions to be taken as a result of this attack, Commissioner Drury.
(Drury comes out of the doorway and steps to the mic.)
DRURY: Thank you. I will make a brief statement then will take a few questions. Please understand we have an event tonight so time is scarce, but we wanted to address these matters. (He glances over at Overmaster.) The GWF Board of Directors does not, in anyway, condone the violence witnessed in the attack on Anivar at Stormfront. The entire board finds the actions of entire Gladiator team to be completely reprehensible. The Board has turned to me asking that I rule in whatever manner I see fit on this matter. (He again looks over at Overmaster.) The world of professional wrestling is a dangerous place. The attack we saw at Stormfront was violent in nature and steps will be taken ton attempt to ensure that nothing of the like happens again. After conferring with my co-commisioner, we've come to the decision that there will be no suspensions levied against the Gladiator team.
(The Press Corps is thrown in an uproar. Drury nervously steps back from the mic. The tidal wave of voices subsides a bit. Drury holds up his hands.)
DRURY (shouting above the voices): If you quiet down I will try to answer any questions. (He pauses.) Ladies and gentlemen, please, I...
(Suddenly a figure leaps out out of the Press seats and charges Overmaster. It's Havoc and he tears into Overmaster! The Security Squad leaps to separate the two as they brawl into the Press! They brawl towards a camera and it goes black.)
(We are in the jam packed Deimos Intergalactic Arena and the crowd is fired up! We cut right to the ring for the opening match.)
Retribution d. Coven Black via submission with GROUNDING THE DEMON. - ***1/2 - Solid match between these two, but Retribution's experience easily dispatches with Coven Black.
COMMISSIONER DRURY'S LUXURY BOX OFFICE
(We see Sly Drury is talking to the Aethran Overmaster.)
OVERMASTER: I want Havoc! Tonight!
DRURY: Fine. You'll get him tonight. But I want to make one thing clear to you. You have no idea how much trouble I'm in with the Board over the little knuckle carving stunt you pulled at Stormfront.
OVERMASTER: I don't care.
DRURY: Yeah. You don't care. Well you will care when the board replaces me and both you and I wind up on some prison planet. All I'm saying is you need to chill out a bit.
OVERMASTER: You would be wise never to give me orders.
DRURY: Fine. But know this, the days of me giving you a free pass are over.
OVERMASTER: The only Gladiator here tonight besides me is Strafe. Nothing will happen.
(Drury stares at Overmaster.)
DRURY: You have Havoc.
(After this we're back to the ring for our next match.)
Encubus d. Thantos (II) by pinfall with SECOND COMING. - ****1/2 - Encubus scores a win in this feud between the two.
(After the match Encubus continued to attack Thantos (II) and Symbiosis ran out to help him! The two perform double deathjumps on Thantos (II). The Security Squad immediately hit the ring and cleared it. Damage was done though as Thantos (II) had to be helped from the ring.)
LEGENDS OF THE RING LOCKER ROOM
(We see HECTOR, SWARM and PAYBACK watching Thantos (II) leaving the ring.)
HECTOR: Dammit! We don't need him injured!
PAYBACK: Doesn't look too bad. He shouldn't be out long.
HECTOR: He'd better not be.
(SWARM is stewing. He stares at Hector. Hector turns to look at him.)
HECTOR: Something you want to say?
(Swarm just stares at him.)
SWARM: Yeah. I want to know how things stand with your little 'plan'. The plan that's seen me sitting on the benches for WEEKS and you losing to Nosfera on the SuperCard!
HECTOR: Me beating Nosfera was never essential to the plan.
SWARM: What?! That doesn't make any sense! So losing to Nosfera was part of the plan?
HECTOR: No. The whole point of me taking on Nosfera was misdirection. Make Drury think my mind was elsewhere instead of solely focused on getting him in the ring.
SWARM: Oh that's convenient. Nice way to explain away your loss.
HECTOR: I'm not explaining away anything. I'm just saying a WIN over Nosfera wasn't essential to the plan. That being said though, the plan is not proceeding the way I'd like it to and that's because of your pal Payback here.
HECTOR (to PAYBACK): Yeah. You were SUPPOSED to take care of Patch. Beat him. That WAS part of the plan. You told me that taking beating him would be easy and what happened?! You LOST! You FAILED Payback.
PAYBACK: You'd better watch how you talk to me.
HECTOR: Or what? You'll lose to me? You didn't do what you said you would do. I now have to push back the plan and modify it a bit. You're lucky that as a Cerebral Assassin, I have the smarts to roll with the punches, or failures, as it is.
PAYBACK: Well if taking out Patch is so important, let me go get him now.
HECTOR: No. You're done with Patch. The plan's changed.
SWARM (shakes his head): So what? You're going to go out and keep YOUR losing streak intact by losing to Patch now?
HECTOR: No, Swarm, I'm not going to face Patch. You are.
(Swarm stares at Hector.)
HECTOR: Tonight. And Swarm. You'd BETTER win.
(Hector turns to the door.)
HECTOR: Now if you gentlemen will excuse me. I'm going to go check on Thantos.
HECTOR leaves. Payback grabs a chair and throws it at the door as it closes.
PAYBACK: I swear to Titan, I've HAD it with that guy!
SWARM: Chill man, chill. He's got something in mind. Let's see where it all plays out.
PAYBACK (shakes his head in disbelief: Heh. All it takes is for him to throw you a bone and your tune changes right quick.
(Swarm puts a hand on Payback's shoulder.)
SWARM: No, my tune ain't changed. I just want to see how this all works out and at the end. When all is said and done, we don't like what we hear....we'll let's just say I'll fight you for a new bear skin rug.
(Payback looks at Swarm for a moment and nods. We head back to ringside for our next match.)
Aethran Overmaster d. Havoc via pinfall after REIGN OF THE OVERMASTER. - ***** - All the bad blood between these two poured out of them and onto the mat as these two went at it!
(After the closing bell, Overmaster left the ring, grabbed a chair and climbed back into the ring about to attack Havoc more. Suddenly Payback came charging down to ringside, waylaid Strafe and then hopped into the ring and blindsided Overmaster! Havoc recovered and began helping his former partner attack Overmaster! The crowd went nuts as Havoc and Payback give Overmaster a double clothesline, then Havoc hit FALLEN DREAMS on Overmaster three times! The Security Squad then charged the ring and Havoc and Payback bailed and left through the crowd before they could begin firing their stun guns.
Once they left, Security Squad called for the medics who attended to Overmaster, under the strict guidance of the glaring Strafe.)
(Clinch and Shoot are here for an interview.)
SHOOT: Ooooooh I'm fired up Clinch!
CLINCH: You and me both, Shoot! We're fired up 'cause of those no good Gladiators, Rush and Turmoil!
SHOOT: You said it Clinch! You see, even though they weren't in the ring or do anything directly to Anivar, we're holding them responsible.
CLINCH: Got that right Shoot! So that's why we're calling you out right here and now Gladiators! We want you in the ring! Tonight!
SHOOT: That's right Shoot! We're not going--
(Suddenly a voice is heard off camera.)
VOICE: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold your horses there tough guys...
(Camera pans back to reveal STARS & STRIPES.)
AMERICAN GUY (Continuing): ...you don't get to waltz right in here and get yourselves a shot at the champs.
U.S. MALE: Look, we understand your anger at what happened to Anivar, but unfortunately, the Gladiatos are the champs and you have to be number one contenders to get to fight them.
AMERICAN GUY: You guys have only had one match, for pete's sake!
U.S. MALE: Okay, calm down, Guy. What we'd like to help you out tonight by giving you the kind of competition you're going to need to get to the top.
AMERICAN GUY: Yeah. You're going to need to get past us to get to them. Just the way it works.
CLINCH: So if I'm hearing these guys right Shoot, I'm hearing that they want to fight us tonight.
SHOOT: I think you're right Clinch. I think that's what they're saying. Well, we'll gladly take you up on that offer, won't we Clinch?
CLINCH: You betcha' Shoot, because me and you are the Ultimate FIghters and the Ulimate Fighters are...
BOTH: FIGHTIN’ TOUGH!!
(The four men stare down each other as we cut back to the ring.)
Swarm d. Patch via a deathjump to the huge delight of the crowd. - **** - Great match between these two but Swarm really dominated.
(After the match Swarm posed on all four corners as the crowd began to chant.)
CROWD: Swarm is awesome! Swarm is awesome!
(Swarm soaked it all up and spent time giving as many fans as possible high fives as he left the ring.)
ULTIMATE FIGHTERS d. STARS & STRIPES via submission when Clinch took out U.S. Male with a guillotine choke. - * - Clinch and Shoot tore through the much more veteran tag team to pick up a dominating win.
(After the match the Ultimate FIghters both grabbed mics.)
SHOOT: Rush! Turmoil! We're coming for you, right Clinch?
CLINCH: RIght Shoot! Gladiators, you're about to find out the true meaning off...
BOTH: FIGHTING TOUGH!
(They clear the ring and unannounced, Tauran heads to the ring and picks up a mic.)
TAURAN: Paganax, you took something very precious to me. My Interplanetary Championship. Now I do get a rematch and I aim to collect on that. But before that I want to prove to you and all these people watching here tonight, that I can beat you. So what I propose is that you get your big red butt out here and face me, one on one, non-title so I can prove it!
(The crowd cheers loudly! Suddenly Paganax appears at the top of the ramp.)
PAGANAX: You are but an insect to the likes of a chief. But if squashing you once more gets me to Endgame, so be it. But where as last time I showed mercy by finishing you off quickly, this time I shall make you suffer.
(Paganax charges the ring and the bell rings for the match to start!)
NON-TITLE MATCH Tauran d. Paganax via pinfall with a VIctory Star Drop! - ** - Tauran hands Paganax his first loss and frustrates the Pagan Chief to no end! Tuaran grabbed the mic as he left the ring...
TAURAN: Hey, Paganax. Next time, I'm taking my belt back.
(Paganx slammed the mat with his fists as he watch Tauran leave to the cheers of the crowd. When Paganax finally left, it was time for our main event.)
GWF WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP TITAN DEATH RULES MATCH Mother Superior d. Sultana via pinfall with the SERPENTS OF HYDRA - ***1/4 - Mother Superior easily handles Sultana to retain her GWF WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP!
(Mother Superior grabbed the mic afterwards.)
MOTHER SUPERIOR: I've kicked you to the curb just like Encubus did your phony Thantos. Sultana, you are done wrestling for this belt!
(Mother Superior dropped the mic, grabbed her belt and headed to the back to a chorus of boos!)
LANDING PAD BEHIND THE ARENA
(We see Overmaster being loaded onto a transport to Aethra. His head is wrapped tightly. A medic is administering painkillers. Strafe grabs the needle and throws them across the landing pad.)
STRAFE: No! No painkillers! It's a sign of weakness!
OVERMASTER: She is right. I must embrace the pain!
(Sly Drury walks up to them.)
DRURY: How you doing?
OVERMASTER: Drury! Make them pay! You hear me Drury?! Make Havoc and Payback pay!
DRURY: Now, I told you that matters were such with the Board after what you guys did to Anivar, that my course is to be careful with each action I take. My hands are tied.
OVERMASTER (gritting his teeth in pain): What are you saying Drury?
DRURY: What I'm saying is...no suspensions for Havoc and Payback.
DRURY: You want to met out justice, in the ring, when you return I can allow it, but if I didn't suspend you, how can I suspend them.
(Overmaster growls with rage and punches out a medic checking his bandages.)
DRURY: Get well. Upon your return vengeance will be yours.
The medics scramble to get Overmaster into the transport as he bellows with rage!
I really like your Infinity Challenge so far... love Abroz and Dilectas' alternating lines.. very cool. (Maybe the rhyming is a bit much, but it fits) It struck me as very Jim Starlin.
Thanks. I made them rhyme occasionally because I'm really going off the line in the handbook that says they are 'cosmic beings'. Kind of like "The Watcher" Guys who set things up and then see how they play out. They've been doing this for centuries, heck, since the universe began. Their time in the GWF is just a blip in their lives. So I just wanted to make them rhyme occasionally to almost make them like Shakespearean characters (like Puck in Midsummer Night's Dream) who occasionally rhymes as well.
We see the two cosmic beings ABROZ and DIALECTUS. They bow to the camera.
ABROZ: Welcome mortals to another evening of Infinity Challenge competition.
DIALECTUS: As of now my brethren Abroz is ahead in points.
ABROZ: But anything can happen my friend and at any moment the score could change.
The two turn to each other and nod.
DIALECTUS: Indeed especially as tonight we add in two more elements to the challenge.
ABROZ: Yes. The first is we have responded to the proposition by competitor Plethador.
DIALECTUS: Yes, a proposition to allow him and fellow competitor Scimitar to compete in a rather unique competition.
ABROZ: A 'Non-Fatal' Showdown. A series of specialty matches to decide who is the better of the two.
DIALECTUS: Indeed and we have have responded to the proposition in the affirmative.
ABROZ: The match back in January between the two will be counted putting Scimitar up 1-0.
DIALECTUS: All future matches will be, as you mortals call them, 'stipulation matches.'
ABROZ: Selected one by one by Dialectus and I and tonight's selection is a Castor Chain Match.
DIALECTUS: Yes and we'll add in a special bonus for winning streaks in the 'Non-Fatal' Showdown.
ABROZ: Bonus points for winning consecutive matches, putting even more importance on these two competitors in the terms of the Infinity Challenge.
The two turn and nod to each other.
DIALECTUS: Tonight we shall also have our first 'stipulation' match between two competitors who have developed a feud.
ABROZ: Bloodline and Tricks in a Cosmic Cage.
DIALECTUS: For these stipulation matches Abroz and I will judges the two competitors.
ABROZ: Winners will still receive their points for winning but based on performance in the match BOTH competitors are eligible for bonus points!
DIALECTUS: Yes, allowing even the loser of the bout to pick up points for his team.
ABROZ: All in the name of competition.
The two turn and nod to each other.
DIALECTUS: And now it is time to witness tonight's competitions and see if intuition will continue to rule.
ABROZ: Or if logic will overtake the lead.
The two nod to each other and then nod to the camera. We cut down to the ring for our first match.
Rotunda d. Dealiest via pinfall with FAT LADY SINGS picking a huge win for Dialectus' team. (+2) - ** - Rotunda danced around the ring after her win! Gryt rolled into the ring and they celebrated with a huge kiss. Gryt then grabbed the mic.
GRYT: Tonight, to celebrate the win by my lovely lady here, I promise you all a huge victory in my match as well!
Gryt and Rotunda continued to celebrate until the officials brought out the twenty foot long Castor Chain for the big Non-Fatal Showdown match!
NON-FATAL SHOWDOWN MATCH #2 CASTOR CHAIN MATCH Plethador d. Scimitar via submission with the SUCTION CLAW in a super quick match grabbing points for Abroz. (+2 - No bonus points awarded due to the quick nature of the match.) - *1/2 - Plethador celebrated wildly after picking up the win! He dove out of the ring to high-five those at ringside, completely forgetting the chain still attached to his neck! He reached the end of the slack and was slammed back down to the mat at ringside! Both Plethador and Scimitar slowly get back to their feet and then spend a good 5 minutes trying to work out how to untangle themselves from the ring ropes and turnbuckle posts. Much to the delight of the crowd.
With the win, Plethador ties the Non-Fatal Challenge at one to one.
Once they are cleared the ring Oracle made his way down and grabbed a mic.
ORACLE: Betrayer. I have consulted the Four Winds of Manaksass for your future. The outlook. The outlook is not good. Not good at all. They say that by the end of our match tonight, your face will run red with the life force that flows through your veins.
After that ominous prediction, Betrayer made his way down to the ring.
Betrayer d. Oracle via pinfall with BLACK BETRAYAL picking up more points for Abroz (+2) - **1/2 - Betrayer was in control the entire match and at no time did he bleed as Oracle had predicted. After the match Betrayer picked up the mic.
BETRAYER: So, uh Oracle, these four winds you consulted...you sure they weren't the four winds that emanated from behind Rotunda after a spicy meal? Because them winds...they was wrong!
The crowd went wild at this and Betrayer left the ring area. Afterwards we cut back to the backstage area where we see Tricks.
TRICKS: Bloodline. You have the years. The experience. You've been there. Done that. But tonight, within the confines of a Cosmic Cage, I'm going to take you to a place you've never been. I'm going to take you to the sickest corners of my mind. Thinking about it, the Cosmic Cage is a lot like the darkest corners of my mind. You see in there, bad things...VERY bad things happen. And there's absolutely...no...escape. Ha ha ha haHA HA HA HAHA haaa Ha ha haaaaaa!
Tricks continues to laugh as we cut back up to the ring for our next match.
Vidtek d. Nitro via pinfall with BIG TIME in a very one-sided match giving Abroz another victory to add to his total. (+2) - ** - Vidtek celebrated after the victory and shook hands with those at ringside.
Gryt d. Tanck via submission with the STORNGMAN STRETCH in a what has to be a huge upset, but one that will give Dialectus much needed points. (+2) - *1/2 - What a hugh shocker! Rotunda and Gryt celebrated as Tanck just shook his head. He couldn't believe he'd just tapped out to his former partner in the middle of the ring. Tanck slammed the mat with his fists and stormed out of the ringside area and Gryt and Rotunda continued to celebrate.
We left the celebration to go backstage where Bloodline is standing staring at the camera.
BLOODLINE: Every GWF athlete, whether they are a first year rookie or a grizzled veteran, has one thing in common. Every night, when they head out to that ring, they have to prove themselves. Tonight, I will prove myself in one of the most dangerous matches devised. The Cosmic Cage. Unfortunately Tricks, you have the undeniable misfortune of being the man I need to beat to prove myself, to prove my place in this fed, my place in this insane Infinity Challenge. Tricks, tonight I get to prove myself against you in a match where anything goes. I'm willing to do anything to win. To prove myself. Are you?
We leave Bloodline and head back to the ring.
LEADERS OF THE PACK d. LIFTOFF when Panther Warrior surprised Mantis with a sunset flip out of nowhere giving Abroz another win. (+2) - SQUASH - Mantis' inexperience came shining through in this match against his former teammates when Panther Warrior was able to take him out in only three moves. It will be interesting to see if this lights a fire under LIFTOFF going forward.
MAIN EVENT COSMIC CAGE MATCH Tricks d. Bloodline after hitting Bloodline with the COULOROPHOBIA (pinfall) and escaping the cage. This gave Dialectus another win. (+2) - ** - A short match. Bloodline showed some good offense, but it seems the Cosmic Cage is a match made for a wrestler like Tricks who used the very cage itself to pick up the win. After the match, an announcement had been made that Abroz and DIalectus would be awarding Trick one bonus point for his victory, giving Dialectus' team an extra boost. They also announced that due to the limited offense Bloodline showed, he would receive no bonus points.
This brings the final scores for the evening to...
ABROZ: 8 DIALECTUS: 7
Abroz wins the night by a slim margin and gains an extra bonus point bringing the grand totals for the Infinity Challenge to...
ABROZ: 22 DIALECTUS: 17
After these scores are shown, we cut back up to Abroz and Dialectus themselves.
DIALECTUS: The margin of victory is close.
ABROZ: It is, but the year is long before us.
DIALECTUS: Logic has a habit of making up ground they say.
ABROZ: But in the end hunches will win the fray.
DIALECTUS: My dear friend it is far too soon to tell.
ABROZ: And with that, dear mortals, we do bid you, farewell.
