The Independent Wrestling Circuit Presents:
January 15, 2006
[The last couple of people are shuffling into their seats when "Guerrilla Radio" by Rage Against the Machine starts to play. The fans turn to the area off to the back where a black curtain hangs over a doorway. It parts, and out comes Tito Hernandez to a collections of claps from the assembled crowd. He makes his way down to the ring, rolling inside and grabbing the corded microphone laying in the middle of the ring.]
Tito Hernandez: Welcome, everybody, to I-W-C!!!!!
[The crowd responds with some applause, especially from the younger fans.]
Tito Hernandez: I can't be happier to bring you people some amazing action, the hottest young wrestling superstars, all to the greatest city on the face of the planet, the greatest city in the history of the human race, CHICAGO!!!
[The fans pop.]
Tito Hernandez: But let's get started, shall we? You didn't pay to see me, you paid to see the guys in the back. One man, in particular, I think. You know who I'm talking about people. He grew up here. You know him, you love him, hell, some of you are wearing his shirts from the merchandise table in the corner. Ladies and Gentlemen....Alex LAFLAND!!!
["Self Esteem" by The Offspring plays as Alex Lafland comes through the curtain, getting a fair bit of applause from the crowd. He walks around the ring, slapping hands with the people at ringside. He hops up onto the apron and steps into the ring, shaking hands with Tito.]
Tito Hernandez: Welcome back Alex.
[Lafland takes the mic.]
Alex Lafland: Thanks Tito, and it does feel great to be back. I've wrestled all over the place. I've wrestled to the East, in Ohio. I've wrestled south of here, in Alabama. I've wrestled West of here in Iowa. I've even wrestled in Canada. But let me tell you people, that there is no better place to wrestle than right here, in Chicago!!
[The crowd gives a pop.]
Alex Lafland: I can't be happier to be here, with the newly formed IWC, and wrestling in the main event. I know my opponent, Insaniac, will be coming out here later tonight and running his mouth about how he's better than me, and how he's gonna beat me. But he's going to learn that I am not like most of the people's he's wrestled. I've been beaten up, I've had my fair share of bumps and bruises, but I've never backed down from a fight, and like hell I'm backing down in my own back yard.
Tito Hernandez: Well, why not we bring him out now. Ladies and gentlemen, accompanied by his manager Mitch Mayor.....Insaniac!!
[Mitch Mayor pops out from the back with Insaniac to his left, glaring into the small crowd with intensity, but rather calm with Mayor at his side. The fans, obviously sensing the threat to their hometown boy, boo Mayor and Insaniac maliciously. Mayor just feeds off the hatred, smriking at the audience with callous intent. He brushes his slicked black hair out of his eyes with his hand to make solid eye contact with the people in the auditorium, personalizing the hatred all the further. Finally he reaches the ring and enters, Insaniac sliding in after him. Mayor grabs the microphone out of Hernandez's hand, leaving Tito in a bit of dismay at Mayor's rude demanor. Mayor wastes no time to share his mind with the Chicago crowd.]
Mayor: Thank you very much Mr. Santana. I just want to be the first to welcome all you Chicago fans to the world of wrestling. I know that besides the random RoH apperance, Chicago doesn't really get a chance to see...how would you say...legitimate wrestling competition on a regular basis. And that's why several months ago I contacted this fine gentlemen here to allow me the opportunity to work with the Indepent Wrestling Circuit in Chicago. Because let's face it, you guys aren't really considered the cream of the crop for professional wrestling.
[A small collection of boos come out to the minor jab.]
Mayor: I mean, why is this thing even in Chicago to begin with. It took a lot of arguements between me and Tito here to actually settle on this place as the home of IWC. Coming from a place where real wrestling happens on a consistent basis, the great state of California, I was pretty much dumbfounded by the idea to set up shop in a place as absent as Chicago. I mean, you get three wrestlers that make it big in the indy scene and all of a sudden you think you're the wrestling capital of the world.
[Now the small racket of jeers turns into a chorus. Knowing he's done some damage, Mayor lets out a smile. Lafland looks uneasy in his side of the ring after that comment.]
Mayor: The bottom line is, IWC needed some actual wrestlers. And in order to do that, Mr. Santana here had to shop some outside sources. Obviously, I was one of the first to get contacted, and knowing that I'd have to find an actual wrestler to work with, I serached in none other than the greatest city in the great lakes region...Cleveland, Ohio!
[The heat begins to grow, almost tangible in the small confines of the Washington Park YMCA.]
Mayor: I found this man, Insaniac, as a failed professional. This man wanted to make his mark on the wrestling world and unleash his rage upon all who stepped in his way. He toured the minor independent scene early in his life, even stopping in the most useless of voids like Chicago to unleash his rage. Many of his teachers said that with the proper handling, he could be one of the most fearsome competitors in the American wrestling market. But those same teachers couldn't control him. He was too powerful, too vicious, and too apathetic for anyone to maintain the beast within. He was sent to the mental ward at Cleveland State Hospital, and luckily I stumbled upon him just in time. This man is going to tear the IWC apart limb from limb. And your precious hometown hero, this washup standing to my right, will be the first to be dismembered.
[On cue, the fans support their own by booing Mayor's insults of Lafland.]
Mayor: You see, Alex Lafland is worse than a has-been. He is a never-was. And as much as this lovable little underdog would want to win, we can all see that he's got nothing. This man makes Brian Kendrick look like Paul Wight. He's got the in ring pressence of Doink the freaking Clown. Sorry if I can't take you seriously Alex, but it's tough to be afraid of something half your size. I mean, you may have all the heart in the world, but in the end it will do you as much good as it's done your Chicago Cubs.
[Many fans now get up on their feet to verbally admonish Mayor's comments. A large portion of the crowd has Cubs gear of some sort on, so it's no wonder that Mayor's words cut deep. A few fans throw some things into the ring.]
Mayor: Just like I expected. You're just a bunch of untrained zoo animals. You don't know when to turn the emotion on or off. The only reason that the man to my left doesn't come out there and rip your ****ing heads from your torso is because I tell him not to. You act brave behind these ropes, jeering me like it changes anything. But none of you have the balls to get in this ring and challenge Insaniac. Hell, at least I can give Lafland credit there. But after tonight, he'll be the example of why you no talent Chicago losers aren't in the business after all! You call this place the Second city, and it's suiting for a place that salutes losing as much as Chicago. The Bears, the Cubs, the Blackhawks, the Bulls...you celebrate these bastions of mediocrity based on the one time they actually did something. Hell, you Chicago White Sox have almost thrown as many world series as they've won. Only in a place like Chicago would we find Alex Lafland to be the only man left to stand up and fight. What have your precious three done other than retreat from the doldrums of Chicago to make their living in places that actually matter. Hell, Phil Brooks is in Indi-freaking-ana instead of this ****hole.
[With every passing insult, the heat rises and the tension thickens. Mayor knows he's getting a rise of the fans and from his demeanor he is loving every minute of it. Truly sadistic, Mayor proceeds with his diatribe.]
Mayor: Everyone here knows what a waste Chicago truly is. The only reason there's so many people here is because if you went further northwest, you'd run out of road. This lack of purpose disgusts me, and that's the sole reason I came out here. I figure, if I can do my part to help fix the outskirt of civilization I might as well. You see, every significant society, no matter what for, was built over a place like Chicago. When the Europeans came to America, they cleaned up a land that was clearly not able to stand by the side of modernity. And just as those who invinsioned creating the world we live in today, I to invision a salvation even for Chicago. Coming from a land of greatness like California, I have the knowledge and leadership to turn Chicago into what California and the tri-state area have become. And for that, each and every single one of you people should be thanking me from the bottom of your inbred little hearts. And I sincerely mean it when I say, you're welcome!
Lafland: Well, I'm glad you like The West Coast, because that's where you'll be, after I kick you out of my ring, and out of my great city!!
[The fans cheer as Mayor pulls Insaniac with him through the curtain. "Self Esteem" starts to play. Lafland rolls out of the ring and starts to clap hands with some fans. He circles the ring once before heading to the back. ]
Benny Young Jr. vs. James Rightenger
Both men make their way to the ring with very little fanfare, as these two men are unknowns to the crowd. No music, no glitz. The crowd is damn near silent. The bell rings, and we're off.
Tito Hernandez: First, from Chicago Heights, he weighs in at 257 pounds, Benny Young, Jr.!
The crowd cheers a small show of support for the man from Chicago Heights, the "across the tracks" portion of Chicago.
Tito Hernandez: And his opponent, from Greenville, South Carolina, he is James Rightenger!
Tito Hernandez: There goes Rightenger with classic moves.
Tito Hernandez: The crowd is behind both of these unknowns, and each have support.
[Benny quickly counters with a modified diamond cutter out of nowhere, he covers but only gets a 1 count. Benny off the ropes with a lionsault but Rightenger lifts up his knees and Benny is in pain now holding his ribs. Rightenger up in the air now with a flying headbutt and connects. He covers.]
Tito Hernandez: Rightenger came a minisecond from winning this quickly.
[Rightenger goes for a top rope elbow drop but Benny now his turn rolls out of the way. Rightenger hits nothing but pure mat. Benny slowly gets up and so does James. James runs at Benny but Benny falls flat on his back and trips up James and then hooks in a small package but grabs the tights the ref doesnt see it and the ref counts]
Tito Hernandez: Wow, Benny Young almost got a win here by cheating, and these people saw it and are booing.
[Young picks up Rightenger and goes for a bodyslam, but he rolls him up into an inside cradle and grabs the bottom rope and the ref counts it.]
Tito Hernandez: Here is your winner, JAMES RIGHTENGER!
[The referee holds Rightenger's hand up, and in this short but sweet match, Rightenger leaves with the fans on his side for other possible appearances.]
Tito Hernandez: Well, these two opened the show with a match that lasted maybe 4 minutes, but I think it was about gaining the crowd's support and I think Righten...
["Points of Authority" by Linkin Park hits the PA system, and the crowd sits in silence as the opening of the song play, and from behind the curtain, and a disgruntled looking guy steps out from behind the curtain with a microphone.]
Tito Hernandez: Who the hell is this guy?
[b]Man: Ladies and Gentlemen, I am Clinton McMahon, and I am here to introduce you to the son of the legendary Matt Cage. He is the 'Complete Shot'... CHRISTIAN JAMES CAGE!
Tito Hernandez: Holy damn! CJ Cage?! Matt Cage's son! What the hell is he doing here?!
[CJ Cage steps from behind the curtain and in a tremendous show of respect, the crowd remains semi-silent, breaking out a small amount of cheers for the son of a man who has entertained the masses for years. He looks at the crowd with a smug look, and he and his obvious associate, Clinton McMahon and makes his way to the ring. CJ steps through the ropes, and Clinton McMahon hands CJ the mic.]
CJ Cage: Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight marks the debut of a man named Christian James Cage here in the IWC. And I am here for one reason and that is to carry on the legacy of my father and the name, "Cage".
[The fans cheer for him as Clinton McMahon stands on and nods his head in approval.]
CJ Cage: The very same name that you people **** upon and hate on. None of you respect the Cage Family. You're all a bunch of sheep, told who to cheer for and who to like. In reality, you're all a bunch of spineless, "follow-the-leader" *******s with no minds to use yourselves. Take for instance, Sean Cole, the leader of the New Era Wrestling franchise. About a month ago, my father and Cole had a match for complete ownership of TPW, and my dad won. The next night, I revealed that I was the man with the stock, and I handed it all over to Cole. I didn't want to do this. I was forced to do it because of one thing. Disrespect to the name "Cage". Cole doesn't give a **** about me, my father, our legacies, and SHAT all over me when he fired me later on that night. Well **** him, and **** all of you people.]
Tito Hernandez: Woah! I didn't expect that from him.
[The crowd shoots a "CJ SUCKS" chant in CJ Cage's direction, but Clinton McMahon starts swinging his briefcase in the air, upset at the lack of respect being dished out towards his associate.]
Tito Hernandez: I think in a matter of 60 seconds, he went from supported to hated from this hot Chicago crowd.
CJ Cage: None of you give me, my father, or anyone else with the last name "Cage" the least amount of support. Sean Cole is a man who I ****ing loathe, just like each of you. You're all to blame. My name alone means that I SHOULD be getting as much respect as I want. But judging from the response that I got when I came out here, none of you respect a GODDAMN thing about me or my family, and that makes me sick to my goddamn ****ing bone marrow.
Tito Hernandez: Strong words from Cage, but what the hell makes him think he deserves respect just because his last name is "Cage"?
[The fans immediately take to booing him again. CJ just shakes his head, and hands the mic to Clinton McMahon.]
Clinton McMahon: You know, this man has done so much for his family. For years, he's taken the verbal and emotional abuse from you people. All of you, and your children, grandchildren, boyfriends, girlfriends, nephews, godchildren and stepchildren, twice removed from marriage. You all have verbally abused my client to the point that he went in seclusion for all of his teenage years. You ridiculed him, and disecrated on. None of you have any respect for this man, or his family. And like CJ, it makes me sick. And in an obvious show of disrespect, he's not even featured on the card tonight. The name "CAGE" has drawing power, despite the man behind the name. This man appeared on a national scale in TPW, and he's not even featured on the card?! What does he need to do to get on the card? Trent Storm had a brief stint in TPW, even going as far as becoming the #1 contender to the Undisputed Title back in August, and the then champion Matt Cage had nothing but NEGATIVE things to say about Trent.
Tito Hernandez: Trent Storm is a marvelous athlete, folks. He'll be in action here tonight and you won't be disappointed. What these two are talking is rubbish.
[The fans start booing, and a portion of the crowd breaks out in a "THUN-DER-SHOCK" chant, wanting Trent Storm to hit the ring and shut these two up, but nothing. Clinton hands the mic to CJ Cage.]
CJ Cage: Exactly my point. How much ass did that bastard Trent Storm have to kiss to get on this card. He's just as high on the ladder as I am. Hell, I am a step higher than he is, and HE IS ON THE DAMN CARD? BULL****! That's why I got Clinton over here. He's my agent, and will be looking out for my best interests. Tell 'em, Clinton.
[The mic once again is passed to his agent, McMahon.]
Tito Hernandez: Not this bafoon again!
Clinton McMahon: My client, associate and friend is as talented as they come, and I refuse to let him be overlooked. Tonight, we WILL make an impact. Tonight, we WILL prove that we deserve a place on this card. And I promise, we will get it. It may not be next week, it may not be the week after. But rest assured, we WILL be on top. My client will not settle for anything less. He is The Complete Shot, because he will completely obliterate anyone in his path. Trent Storm, Alex Lafland, whoever. Nobody is safe. Like us or not, you WILL respect us. That, I can not only guarantee, but I promise it.
["Points of Authority" hits, and the duo leaves the ring to a massive chorus of boos. As they walk up the aisle, a fan throws a cup of beer at CJ and it hits him in the face. CJ snaps and goes to attack the fan, but McMahon tries to calm him down, assuring him that their time will arrive.]
Trent Storm vs Ron Johnson
[“Happy?” by Mudvayne starts to play over the sound system as Trent Storm makes his way to the ring, getting a warm welcoming reception from the Chicago crowd. He hops up onto the apron, stepping through into the center of the ring and slapping his chest in recognition of the cheers for him.]
Tito Hernandez: Ladies and gentlemen, hailing from Cobb Country Georgia....Trent Storm!!
[Trent’s music fades out, and is replaces by “Here to Stay” by Korn. Out comes Ron Johnson, who cheers loudly himself to get the crowd pumped up. He slaps hands with some fans on his way to the ring before sliding in.]
Tito Hernandez: Introducing Second, from St. Louis, Missouri, Ron Johnson!!!
[The two men come to the middle of the ring and shake hands in a show of sportsmanship. They begin to circle, and lock in a collar and elbow tie-up. They jockey back and forth before Storm comes out, holding a hammerlock. Ron Johnson reaches around and counters, locking in a hammerlock of his own, from which he goes right to a side headlock. Storm hits a couple forearm shots to the side to cause some separation, but Johnson just swings Storm around and down to the mat.]
[Storm brings his legs up, trying to lock in a headscissors, but Johnson quickly from the hold, getting up to his feet. Storm gets up to his too.]
Tito Hernandez: Some strong chain wrestling here.
[They lock up again in a collar and elbow tie-up. This time Johnson ducks around and grabs Storm around the waist. Trent lowers his weight quickly, and reaches between his feet to pull out the leg of Johnson. Ron brings his other foot up and pushes Trent off into the ropes. Storm bounces off and comes back, getting rolled up quickly.]
Storm kicks out.]
Tito Hernandez: Gonna take a lot more than that to put either of these men away.
[They both get up quickly. Johnson wraps Storm up and drives him hard into the corner. The ref calls for a break. 1 2 3 4. Johnson breaks, but not before a quick rake of the eyes which draws some boos. Johnson then jumps onto Storm’s gut and falls back, launching Storm into the air in a monkey flip.]
[Storm starts to get up, but takes a hard dropkick to the side of the head, sending him rolling under the ropes onto the apron. Johnson walks over as Trent gets up to his feet. Ron grabs for a suplex, but Trent counters by dropping down, drapping Johnson throat first across the top rope. Johnson falls onto his back, letting Storm grab onto his legs and pull him quickly outside, letting Johnson’s spine collide hard with the solid floor.]
Tito Hernandez: He’ll be feeling that in the morning.
[Johnson rolls around on the outside, spine arched in pain. Storm bends over and pulls him up, but Johnson counters with a thumb to the eye. Storm stumbles away, holding his face in pain. Johnson used the opportunity to grab Storm by the back of the head and run him face first into the ring post.]
[Johnson raises his arms, hoping for a cheer. He gets one or two, but mostly he just gets boos, which pisses him off.]
Tito Hernandez: Ron getting no love from the crowd.
[Johnson rolls Storm into the ring, pulls him up, and hits a snapmare. Johnson then runs, bounces off the ropes on the far side, and comes back with a basement dropkick to the face.]
[Johnson goes for the pin.]
[Storm kicks out.]
[Johnson pulls Storm up, but quickly drops him with a swinging neckbreaker, going right into a pin.]
[Storm kicks out again.]
Tito Hernandez: Johnson going to need something more than that to take down Storm.
[Johnson bends down and pulls Storm up, but Trent starts to counter with elbows to the gut. He runs to the nearest ropes, but Ron just grabs onto Storm’s hair and takes him down to the mat.]
[Johnson gets up, then bounces off the ropes, coming back with a jumping knee drop to the temple. Storm quickly gets up to his feet, holding his head in pain. Ron drives him back into the corner, where he hits a hard knife edge chop.]
[He hits a hard forearm shot to the face, followed by another chop.]
[Storm, in a quick burst, grabs onto Johnson and switches their spots before lighting up Johnson’s chest.]
[Johnson stumbles out of the corner, holding his chest. Storm runs up behind him, grabs his chest, and hits a bulldog. Johnson rolls under the ropes and to the outside.]
Tito Hernandez: I think it’s quite obvious who won that battle of the chops.
[Johnson stands up quickly, turning back to the ring. His eyes go wide as Storm does a Plancha over the top, coming down hard onto Johnson. Trent gets up quickly and celebrates with some of the fans. He rolls Johnson into the ring, climbs up onto the apron, and hits a rolling senton over the top rope, right onto the gut of Ron.]
[Trent goes for the cover.]
[Johnson kicks out.]
[Storm rolls Johnson into the middle of the ring, onto his stomach. Ron tries to squirm away, but he can’t stop Trent as his arms and legs are locked up, and he is lifted up in a Mexican stretch.]
[Johnson is held completely off the mat, and even though he grunts in agony, he doesn’t give up, leaving Storm to just dump him back down onto the mat.]
Tito Hernandez: Trent doing a good job keeping the pressure up on Johnson here.
[Storm pulls Johnson up, and leads him over to a corner. Trent plants his opponent with a scoopslam then walks right to the turnbuckles. He jumps up, and goes for a split-legged moonsault. He comes down, though, right onto the knees of Johnson. Storms stays on his feet, but he’s doubled over in pain. When he does straighten up, he takes a dropkick right to the chest, knocking him onto his back. Johnson keeps up with the pressure, rolling Storm’s legs over his face so that Trent is hunched over. Ron then grabs a front headlock, lifts up, and hits a front suplex, right in the middle of the ring.]
[Storm rolls around the ring in pain until Johnson stops him with a pair of hard boot-shots to the face. Johnson bounces off the ropes, hits a running double stomp to the chest. But he keeps going, bouncing off the ropes on the other side and hitting a senton onto the gut of Storm.]
[Johnson goes right for the pin, making it tight.]
[Storm kicks out.]
Tito Hernandez: Trent Storm not giving up, despite the abuse to the chest he’s taken.
[Johnson looks frustrated as he boots away at the chest of Storm. He backs off into the corner and waits for Storm to rise, which he slowly does. Johnson then charges. He goes for a spear, but Storm dodges out of the way. When Ron turns back around, he takes a superkick right to the jaw. He doesn’t go down, but he stumbles around like a drunken sailor during St. Patrick’s day. This allows Storm to duck around behind Johnson and hit a huge german suplex.]
Tito Hernandez: Trent firing right back into this match. And I almost said storming.
[Both men are laying on the mat, trying to catch their breath. They begin to stir, slowly climbing to their feet. They trade some shots till Storm misses one, spinning around on the spot. Johnson quickly rolls him up, hooking the tights.]
[Storm kicks out.]
[They stand up, Storm lands a hard chop.]
[Johnson goes down to one knee, his chest hurting so much. Storm gets behind him and locks in a double underhook. He tries to twist Johnson around, but Ron stops it. Trent then charges Johnson hard into a corner before back up, twisting, and hitting an Unprettier!]
Tito Hernandez: He calls that The Perfect Storm.
[Trent goes for the cover.]
Tito Hernandez: The winner of this match.......Trent Storm!!! Man, what a match... WAIT A SECOND!!
[CJ Cage comes running down and slides in the ring with Clinton McMahon hobbling behind him with a chair. CJ Cage spears Storm down to the mat and immediately strikes him with repeated closed fists. McMahon slides in the ring with the chair and circles them with it. Johnson stands up, and McMahon cleans his clock with a chairshot. ]
Tito Hernandez: What a lowlife scumbag! Both of them!
[Cage picks up Storm, who is now bleeding from the mouth and pushes him into the corner and hits him with hard jabs to the gut and about the mid section. McMahon hands him the chair, and Cage swings full force to Cage's upper body and he falls to the mat in pain clenching his chest.]
Tito Hernandez: HOLY GOD!!!! HE MAY HAVE JUST BROKEN TRENT STORM'S RIB CAGE!!
[McMahon snatches a mic from ringside and hands it to CJ Cage who is pacing back and forth across the ring like a caged animal.]
CJ Cage: Brian Urlacher couldn't even even muster up enough muscle to swing a bat as hard as I just swung that bat at you.
[The Cubs fans in the audience erupt in jeers for Cage's cheap shot.]
CJ Cage: This is only the beginning, Storm. Between you and I, it's just begun.
[McMahon pulls Storm to his feet, and tosses him to Cage who immediately pulls him in and successfully hits the Headshot.]
Tito Hernandez: HEADSHOT TO TRENT STORM, AND HE IS OUT COLD!!!
["Points of Authority" hits and the duo once again leave the ring, having laid out Trent Storm successfully.]
Insaniac [i](w/ Mitch Mayor) vs Alex Lafland
[The building is almost dead silent as suddenly, Insaniac, on a wheel cart and in a straight jacket, is brought out from the back. Some fans boo as they see him. A loud siren blares over the speakers and Insaniac's eyes open, then "Seamless" by American Head Charge hits and Mitch Mayor comes out from the back. Insaniac is released from his straight jacket and charges to the ring like and animal, ready for the match to begin. Mayor stands at ringside taunting the nearby fans.]
[“Self Esteem” by Offspring comes on, and the cheers come in hard and fast as Alex Lafland comes through the curtain, pumped up and ready to go. He runs around ringside, ignoring Mayor and Insaniac in the ring, slapping hands with the fans. Once he’s done a round, he comes to a stop, his attention now in the ring. Cautiously, he climbs inside. Mayor stays with his ‘client’, giving him some instructions.]
Tito Hernandez: Ladies and gentlemen, up next is our main event, of the evening!
Tito Hernandez: Introducing first, standing in the corner to my left, he weighed in here today at 221 pounds. Coming from Cleveland Ohio, and accompanied by his manager Mitch Mayor.....Insaniac!!
[The fans boo the duo, but Insaniac doesn’t seem to hear it.]
Tito Hernandez: Introducing second, standing in the corner to my right, he measured in this morning at 5 feet 7 inches. Coming from right here, in Chicago Illinois...give it up, for Alex LAFLAND!!
[The crowd cheers, and Alex turns to acknowledge it. Suddenly, Insaniac explodes across the ring, leveling Alex with a forearm shot to the back of the head. Tito and Mayor both bail from the ring as the bell is rung.]
[Insaniac goes for a rear mount, but Lafland quickly scoots backwards, getting up to his feet. Insaniac stays right with him, catching him with a double leg takedown and drilling Lafland into the mat. Alex quickly rolls into the ropes.]
Tito Hernandez: Here we go folks, the first main event of the first event for IWC. And it’s starting out hot and heavy.
[Insaniac doesn’t let up, as he starts booting away at Lafland. The referee tries to pull him away, but Insaniac just pulls free. Lafland uses the opportunity to roll to the outside of the ring.]
[Insaniac wastes no time going after Lafland as he slides under the bottom rope and to the outside. Lafland doesn't realize this and gets clubbed in the back with a double axe handle smash, sending him to the ground. Lafland tries to get back to his feet, but Insaniac grabs him by the head and the trunks and hurls him shoulder first into the ring post.]
Tito Hernandez: Insaniac vicious with his attacks.
[Lafland obviously favors his shoulder as he rolls around on the outside in pain. Insaniac goes to pick him up but Lafland uses his ring knowledge to drop toe hold Insaniac face first into a fans chair. Lafland rolls back into the ring, trying to take a breather from his intense opponent. He buys himself enough time to get back to his feet, but Insaniac is right back in with him and charges quickly at Lafland, knocking him off his feet. Insaniac delivers a series of closed fists and Lafland reaches to the ropes to make the referee break up the assault.]
[The two circle each other in the ring, Insaniac trying to go after Lafland's legs to take him down, Lafland moving backwards every time Isaniac makes his move. Finally Insaniac commits to a dive but Lafland dodges, then takes advantage and locks an reverse armbar on Insaniac.]
[Lafland follows it up by rolling over the back of Insaniac, stretching the air to it's max. Getting up to his feet, Lafland quickly flips into a rolling legdrop, coming down across the face of Insaniac, and also drawing some applause from the crowd.]
Tito Hernandez: Lafland making good use of his agility here in the early going. He’s going to need it to counter the bigger Insaniac.
[Insaniac quickly gets back up to his feet, wanting to get back on the offensive. Lafland connects with a jumping enzuigiri to the side of Insaniac's head, but that only stuns him. Quickly, Insaniac gets whipped into the corner. Lafland runs, bounces off the ropes to the side, and connects with a springboard dropkick to the face of Insaniac, taking Insaniac off his feet and dropping him on his ass in the corner.]
[Back on his feet, Lafland runs and connects with a second dropkick to the face of Insaniac, and a third when the Mayor-managed wrestler starts to push himself off the mat.]
[Lafland backs up, letting Insaniac climb up in the corner. With his opponent in position, Lafland charges. Insaniac steps out of the corner, catching Lafland on his shoulder. He drops the Chicago native on the top turnbuckle, before flipping him over the top rope, all the way down to the floor.]
Tito Hernandez: What a spill to the outside!!
[Insaniac again is relentless, following Lafland to the outside. Mayor eggs him on as he nails some swift kicks to Lafland's gut. Lafland rolls over to his back and Insaniac begins stomping at Lafland's already weakened shoulder. Insaniac then drops a knee into the upper arm area and Lafland rolls around the outside in pain. Grabbing Lafland by the neck and tights, he motions to hurl Lafland into the ring, but pulls a 180 and throws him head and shoulders first into the audience, forcing Lafland to collide with several steel chairs and an unforgiving concrete floor.]
[Lafland favors his neck as he gets back up to his feet. Insaniac goes in right after him and grabs him by the hair, but Lafland meets him with a kick to the gut, then an uppercut to the jaw which sends Insaniac reeling. Only stunned, Insaniac comes charging back with a spear, meeting Lafland hard back first on the concrete. Insaniac then grabs Lafland once again and tosses him back into the ring. The fans around Insaniac jeer the beast, but he seems unphased, not even noticing the reaction to his malicious assault.]
[After sliding back into the ring, Insaniac catches Lafland getting back up to his feet and rocks him with a lightning fast snap suplex, then rolls over and locks in a side headlock on the mat. Lafland uses his agility to wrap his legs around Insaniac's head and flips him over into a head scissors lock. Insaniac uses his strength to his advantage to break Lafland's leg-grip, getting his arms wrapped around Alex's legs to lift him up, then bring him crashing down with a thunderous powerbomb, shaking the ring. Keeping him in position, Insaniac goes for the pin.]
[But Lafland kicks out as he still has plenty of energy this early in the match. Insaniac picks Lafland up and whips him into the corner hard. Lafland just riccochets off the padding and falls face first into the mat.]
Tito Hernandez: Insaniac is just a war machine. This is turning out into not a wrestling match, but a case of survival for Lafland.
[Insaniac walks over to his fallen opponent and props him back up in the corner, then sets him up on the top turnbuckle sitting down. Setting him up for a superplex, Insaniac makes the ascent himself and locks in for the move. Lafland manages to counter the high impact suplex and instead hits a revese suplex having Insaniac land chest and face first on the mat. Insaniac gest to his feet quickly, trying to walk off the pain, but Lafland comes charging back down with a missle dropkick.]
[Alex pushes himself back up to his feet slowly, holding his shoulder in pain as he landed slightly on it. He grabs onto the rising Insaniac and whips him into the ropes. On the rebound Lafland jumps up onto his opponent's shoulders. He starts the hurricanruana, but Insaniac blocks it mid-move. Alex gets lifted right back up by Insaniac, but Lafland slides off of Insaniac's shoulders, grabbing onto his head before drilling him with a DDT into the mat.]
[Lafland goes for the pin.]
Tito Hernandez: He could have it!
[Insaniac kicks out, only fazed by the high-impact move. Lafland gets up only to drop a knee into the forehead of Insaniac. Insaniac gets pulled up, but counters with a stiff boot to the gut of Lafland, causing him to stumble all the way to the ropes. Insaniac charges, but Lafland drops down just in time to let Insaniac fly through the ropes down to the ground again.]
[Yelled at by his manager Mitch Mayor, Insaniac forces his way back up to his feet, a little dazed. He orients back to the ring just as Lafland runs to the ropes to the side, springboards off the middle rope in a beautiful moonsault, catching Insaniac right on.]
Fans: Lafland! Lafland! Lafland!
Tito Hernandez: What an impressive feat done from this home-town boy.
[Alex acknowledges the fans with a nod of the head as he rolls Insaniac back into the ring. Lafland gets up onto the apron, then onto the top turnbuckle. The ref is checking on Insaniac, though, leaving the door open for Mitch Mayor to jump up onto the apron and shake the ropes, crotching Lafland. With distant eyes, Alex falls forward off the turnbuckle, onto the mat.]
Insaniac gets back to his feet before Lafland can get back up and Insaniac wastes no time of his advantage, going right after Lafland and locking in a front headlock, getting Lafland back up to his feet. Lafland goes for a northern lights suplex, but doesn't have enough power to flip Insaniac and the fighter comes tumbling back down, connecting with a vicious rolling DDT on Lafland.]
[Insaniac moves over to his prey and locks in a Dragon Sleeper, but Lafland is some serious danger. Insaniac keeps the pressure on as the referee checks to see if Lafland will submit. Close enough to the ropes, Lafland springboards off the ropes and hits a reverse DDT on Insaniac. Feeling a surge of energy, Lafland charges forward and hits a shining wizard on Insaniac, sending him rolling out under the bottom rope.]
Tito Hernandez: Insaniac might have saved himself there by rolling to the outside with the impact. If not, Lafland could have had this one done already.
[Lafland gets on the apron and waits patiently for Insaniac to get to his feet and then springboards off for an Asai Moonsault. He comes falling down but Insaniac manages to catch him and sends him tumbling down for a shoulderbreaker. The momentum of the moonsault makes the move all the more powerful and Lafland's face cringes in pain. Always on the offensive, Insaniac tosses Lafland back into the ring and comes chasing after.]
[Insaniac locks in a standing armbar on Lafland, getting some quick jabs in at Lafland's upper arm and shouler. Lafland reaches out for the ropes, but Insaniac just pulls him away. Lafland then goes through his next progression of escapes and goes to grab Insaniac's hair, but just feels around as Insaniac has a shaved head. Feeling the free hand, Insaniac tightens up the hold, trying to get Lafland to tap.]
[Running out of options, Lafland leaves his feet and then as he comes falling back down, uses his momentum to slide and break the hold by whipping an armdrag on Insaniac. Insaniac gets to his feet quickly and charges Lafland. Alex nails Insaniac with a quick dropkick, but Insaniac gets back up. Lafland then nails another and has the momentum going for him. He whips Insaniac into the ropes and heads into the other direction, then hits a springboard reverse DDT. Lafland goes for the pin.]
[b]Lafland: Shock Drop!!
Tito Hernandez: This could be it!
[Yelling the name of his finisher, he does in fact start up for that, waiting for Insaniac to stand. When he does, Lafland boots him in the gut. He then starts to go for the Shock Drop, but Insaniac straightens, flipping Lafland backwards. When Alex lands on his feet, Insaniac levels him with a hard clothesline.]
[Insaniac pulls Lafland up to his feet, shaking his head out. He lifts Lafland up onto his shoulder, then carries him over to a corner. Alex is then dropped shoulder first onto the turnbuckle pad. Lafland stumbles out, holding his shoulder while Insaniac runs and bounces off the ropes. The Chi-Town native turns around just in time to take a stiff Yakuza Kick to the face.]
[Insaniac goes for the pin.]
[Lafland gets a shoulder up, but Insaniac quickly locks in an hammerlock, straining the shoulder even more. Lafland escapes, rolling Insaniac over with a snapmare. As Insaniac gets back to his feet, Lafland bounces of the rope and comes back to hit a shoulder block, but forgets of his damaged shoulder and meets some serious pain as he bounces of Insaniac, who seems unphased by the lightweight's move. Insaniac squeezes his feet between Lafland's upper arm, then jumps up and comes crashing down, stressing the shoulder evene more.]
[Lafland clutches his shoulder in pain as he rolls around on the mat. Insaniac picks him up so he's on his hands and knees, then hits a straight kick across Lafland's face. Lafland rolls to the apron and lifts himself up, but Insaniac moves him and hits a jumping armbreaker across the ropes. Lafland goes tumbling to the outside as Insaniac gets the apron. Leaping off, Insaniac hits a jumping legdrop on Lafland's shoulder. Insaniac lifts Lafland up and whips his arm into the steel turnbuckle. Lafland collapses to the floor in pain and Insaniac doesn't quit. He picks Alex up by his hair and sends him back into the ring.]
Tito Hernandez: Give Up Alex!! Live to fight another day!
[The referee wars Insaniac about the use of the turnbuckle post, but Insaniac doesn't even take attention off Lafland. Alex, worn out and confused at Insaniac's resilliance and non-stop offensive drive, backs himself into a corner and lifts himself up with the second rope, kicking Insaniac in the gut. Mayor sees it thinking it is a low blow and immediately begins to complain to the official.]
[Lafland gets to his feet but Insaniac clotheslines him over the top rope and chases after him to the outside. He stomps away at the shoulder every time Lafland tries to get to his feet. Then with the referee still distracted, Insaniac grabs an audience members chair and drills Lafland clean in his right shoulder.]
Tito Hernandez: Oh come on ref! Turn around!!
[Lafland yells out in pain, but Insaniac remains all business. He tosses Lafland back into the ring and goes for a pinfall, recapturing the referees attention before doing so.]
[But Lafland manages to lift his left, uninjured shoulder. Frustrated, Insaniac locks in a Gangsta Stretch, trying to pull that shoulder out of socket. Lafland is close enough to reach the ropes though and the official breaks the hold. Insaniac then drags Lafland to the middle of the ring and locks in a standing armbar. Lafland tries to escape, remembering how he got out of the hold earlier. He does a leap to use his momentum to roll Insaniac, but this time Insaniac doesn't release, and Lafland just puts more tension on his shoulder. Writhing in pain, he looks for an out as he feels around for the ropes with his feet, finally able to grab onto the ropes, but not after the damage has been done. Lafland is slow to get to his feet as Insaniac just zeros in on Alex, waiting to strike. When the Chicago local gets to his feet, he can barely stand straight up due to the pain on his shoulder. Slouching, Lafland is grabbed by Insaniac, who whips him into the ropes. Lafland comes back and ducks under a clothesline, then leaps with a jumping forearm.]
[Insaniac quickly pushes back up to his feet, but takes a hard spinning leg lariat to the face, taking him right back down. Lafland moves, very protective of his shoulder, holding his right arm tight against his side.]
[Insaniac gets up again, unrelentlessly. He turns around, and takes a hard super-kick right to the jaw for his troubles. He seems out cold. Lafland, though, doesn’t go for the pin. Instead, he goes past Insaniac, climbing his way up to the top without the use of him arm.]
[Balanced on top, looking at all the people around him, he jumps off, getting a ton of air before crashing down onto Insaniac with a big top rope leg drop.]
[Lafland goes for the cover.]
[Insaniac somehow kicks out.]
Tito Hernandez: He couldn’t hook the leg, because of his shoulder.
Lafland gets up to his feet, panting and tired, he pulls Insaniac up to his feet and boots him in the gut.]
Lafland: Shock Drop!!
[With the fans cheering him on, Lafland bounces off the ropes. But when he does, Mayor grabs at his foot. He doesn’t go down, but Lafland turns around and stares at Mayor.]
[Quickly, with Lafland distracted, Insaniac moves in for the kill and locks in a rear naked choke with a chicken wing, a move he calls the Straightjacket. Lafland has nowhere to escape to this time as Insaniac's legs are wrapped tightly around his body, not allowing him to move. After about ten seconds of struggle, Lafland finally taps.]
[The fans boo as Mayor climbs into the ring, a proud smile on his face. Insaniac lets go of Lafland and pushes him aside, leaving him to hold his shoulder in pain. Mayor grabs a microphone.]
Mayor: Look at your Chicago wrestling. Look at this disgrace in the ring...broken...battered...BEATEN! This is all you people are, first class losers. Cheer for your fallen hero. CHEER!
Fans: SHUT THE **** UP *CLAP*CLAP*CLAP-CLAP-CLAP*
Mayor: Keep chanting. Continue to live in denial. But I'm taking this federation out of this putrid city for good. Your hero, your savior, the man who was going to represent Chicago through thick and thin in IWC is going to be no more. Insaniac and I are going to end Alex Lafland's career right here, right now.
[Insaniac slides out of the ring and grabs a steel chair, then slides back in and hands it to Mayor.]
Mayor: Do any of you people know how difficult it is to return to action with a serious shoulder injury. I'm talking ligament damage, muscle tears, rips, breaks. Alex Lafland will never see another ring as long as he lives, and that is my gift to you, the losers of society, the Second Class Citizens. Because he lost, just like your beloved Chicago Bears. But the difference between the Bears and Lafland is that they fought to the end. Lafland just gave up, like the loser he is.
[Mayor hasn't even noticed, but Lafland has managed to get back to his feet behind Mitch and Insaniac. Lafland grabs the chair from Mayor and kicks Mayor in the gut as he turns around, then clocks Insaniac square in the head with the chair. Insaniac goes tumbling out of the ring, leaving his manager by his lonesome with Alex Lafland and a steel chair.]
Fans: KICK HIS ASS!!! KICK HIS ASS!!!
[Lafland goes to swing at Mayor, but Mitch quickly slides out of the ring and grabs Insaniac as the two head to the back, cowering from an injured Lafland and his equalizer. The fans toss stuff at Mayor and Insaniac until they finally dissapear behind the curtain. Lafland grabs the mic.]
Lafland: Let this be the message to all you outsiders who think you're better than us. We haven't backed down, through all the hardships and years of failure, we have NOT backed not and we will not back down. You can send everything you've got at me Mayor, but I'm still standing in this ring. You mess with me again, you'll get exactly the same. This city is to strong to crumble under your will!
[The fans pop as loudly as a small YMCA audiotrium could, ending the show with Lafland left in the ring.]
01-30-2006, 08:58 PM
The Indpendent Wrestling Circuit Presents:
January 30, 2006
[The show kicks off with Tito Hernandez in the ring, ready to greet us for the second IWC show.]
Hernandez: Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Indepent Wrestling Circuit's second show...RETRIBUTION!
[The small audience pops a little.]
Tito Hernandez: I want to thank everyone coming out for tonight's show. I have a feeling that this is going to be an IWC show to remember for a long time to come, so let's not waste any time and kick things off. In the ring right now, IWC newcommer Blade! And now making his way to the ring, from Detroit, Michigan, Nick Pellet!
Blade vs Nick Pellet
["Superstar" by Saliva starts to play as Nick Pellett comes through the curtain, carrying a number of signs which read MCS. Handing them out to a couple of the fans in the seats, he goes to the ring apron, pulls out a trashcan, then throws it inside. Hernandez promptly exits the ring to the announce table nearby.]
[Pellett then slides into the ring, stands up, and takes a hard boot to the gut from Blade, doubling him over as the bell rings to start the match.]
[Blade hammers on the back of Pellett with some clubbing forearm shots until Nick explodes back with a spear take-down, punching away at the head of Blade. Nick then stands up and grabs onto the garbage can.]
Tito Hernandez: What's he going to do with that?
[Blade gets to his feet, and takes the garbage can right to the forehead. He staggers slightly, but doesn't go down. Pellett tries again, and Blade stumbles backwards into the ropes. Nick charges in, but takes a boot to the face. He drops the can and stumbles backwards.]
Tito Hernandez: Smart play by Blade right there.
[When he turns around, Blade boots him in the gut, lifts him up for a suplex, but then slams Pellett down onto the trashcan with a Falcon Arrow.]
Tito Hernandez: That's a big time move right there. And right onto the steel trashcan!
[Blade goes for the cover.]
[Pellett kicks out.]
Tito Hernandez: That was very close even though were early into the match.
[Blade gets up, booting away at the head of Pellett. He then grabs the trashcan, puts it on the face of Nick, and hits a double stomp right onto it, compacting it right onto the face of Pellett.]
Tito Hernandez: This match is just plain brutal.
[He doesn't keep up the advantage, though. He slides out of the ring, looking underneath it. From below he pulls out one steel chair after another, until he has four on the ground beside him. He then slides them into the ring.]
Tito Hernandez: This cannot be good.
[Nick starts to get up to his feet, but Blade just hits him with a hard right hand to the temple, stunning him briefly. Before Blade can follow up though, a much bigger man gets into the ring behind him.]
Tito Hernandez: THAT'S MAXIMUM CARNAGE SECURITY'S JAMES RAMAGE!
[James Ramage charges forward and lays Blade out with a lariat from behind. He has a bag in his other hand, which he drops to the mat. He looks inside, and pulls out a pair of beers.]
Tito Hernandez: Punch down those brews! The fans are loving it.
[The male adult fans cheer as Pellett and Ramage both drain the beers as fast as they can. Refreshed, almost, they wait for Blade to stand before giving him a double boot, and whipping him into the ropes. On the rebound, they catch him and plant him with a double spinebuster into the middle of the ring.]
Tito Hernandez: Sweet mother of hay-sus! What a move.
[Pellett then runs and bounces off the ropes to the side. When he comes back, Ramage assists in launching him into the air, letting him come down with a splash across the body of Blade.]
Tito Hernandez: Blade is in some serious trouble here.
[Blade gets pulls up to his feet, and grabbed from behind in a waist-lock by Ramage. Blade gets lifted up, but dropped to the ground in a combination reverse powerbomb-double knee drop. Ramage then pulls Blade back up, locks him in a standing double underhook, and waits for Pellett to hit a standing dropkick before hitting the Tiger Suplex.]
Tito Hernandez: MCS is just toying with Blade now. This is no longer a match, it's an assassination.
[Nick and James kinda laugh as the fans are giving a mixed reaction, some cheers, some boos. James drags Blade back towards a corner, while Nick makes use of the chairs, setting them up in two rows, facing each other right in front of James. Nick then climbs the turnbuckle as James swings Blade up for a powerbomb. James then lifts the helpless Blade up higher as Nick jumps off and hits a missile dropkick.]
Tito Hernandez: What a devestating dropkick!
[James then uses the impact to add more force as Blade is slammed down onto the four chairs. Nick makes the cover.]
[MCS celebrate their victory in the ring.]
Tito Hernandez: What a way to kick off this show, and we've got more to come.
[MCS clears the ring and the crew cleans up post match. Once everything is good to go, Hernandez leads us into the next match.]
Tito Hernandez: This should be interesting. Over the week, CJ Cage and Trent Storm got together, and we understand that they put their differences aside to team up tonight. I can't wait!
Trent Storm & CJ Cage vs Taylor Hicks & Marty Skaggs
["Points of Authority" by Linkin Park hits and Clinton McMahon steps from behind the curtain carrying his briefcase and a microphone.]
Tito Hernandez: Ladies and Gentlemen, please give a warm welcome to the man of the hour, weighing in at 221 pounds, he is The Complete Shot... CHRISTIAN JAMES CAGE!!
[CJ Cage steps from behind the curtain and powerwalks towards the ring with Clinton McMahon behind him. He slides in the ring and throws his arms in the air as the fans immediately begin booing the arrogant, delusional Cage. He climbs to the turnbuckle as Clinton McMahon applauds him. His music is immediately cut off as the lights in the arena shut off. The lights begin blinking on and off as the fans cheer loudly for what they know is coming.]
[The sounds of lightning striking are heard followed by the opening chords of "Happy" by Mudvayne begin playing over the PA system and the crowd erupts for Trent Storm. He walks out to the stage where the fans jump up to their feet for him. He walks down to the ring, hops up on to the ring apron and steps inside the ring. He goes to the middle of the ring and slaps his chest and raises his arms for the fans, as they continue cheering him on. He walks to the corner where CJ Cage is standing and shakes his head at him in approval. Their opponents are already in the ring, ready to fight as the bell rings.
Tito Hernandez: Trent Storm and Taylor Hicks are starting this match off, and a collar and elbow tie-up from Hicks and Storm and this match is off. Hicks wrenching Storm's arm and he's damn sure wrenching that left arm, that elbow of Trent Storm. Hicks backing Storm up against the ropes, Storm shoots off and a tackle from Storm. Hicks on his chest, Storm off the ropes... DROPKICK FROM TAYLOR HICKS! And Hicks is back on that arm. Taylor Hicks and Marty Skaggs are two local guys from the Chicago area, and from what I've heard, they are very talented.
[On the ring apron, CJ Cage is getting a neck-rub from Clinton McMahon as the fans chant for Trent Storm.]
Tito Hernandez: Hicks has that arm bar locked on Storm, and Storm is trying to pull himself up with the right arm... He's got the ropes, and he's up. REVERSAL BY TRENT STORM, and Storm has turned the tables, wrenching Taylor's arm. STORM JUST THREW TAYLOR HICKS SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST! SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP!!
Tito Hernandez: Wow, that was close, I don't think Hicks was expecting that. Hicks dives for the tag to Skaggs, and he's got it.
[Skaggs gets in the ring and goes for a spear on Storm, but Storm backs out of the way. Skaggs shoots of the ropes and goes for a clothesline, but Storm ducks and runs off the other side of the ring, shoots off the ropes and both men hit a clothesline, knocking each other out.]
Tito Hernandez: DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE FROM STORM AND SKAGGS, AND BOTH MEN ARE OUT! Trent Storm is moving! That was some MAJOR Impact, I have no clue how he's moving right now.
[Storm gets up and picks Skaggs up from the head. He whips him into the ropes and as he shoots back, Storm hits Skaggs with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. He goes for the cover.]
Tito Hernandez: Good lord, I thought it was over there. That was a vicious backbreaker from Trent Storm.
[Storm picks up Skaggs and makes sure he's balanced before jumping up and hitting a leg lariat to Skaggs face. Skaggs drops down like a a bag of bricks and Storm hops to the attack, pulling back on his neck and legs with his own knee in his lower back.]
Tito Hernandez: Trent Storm can wrestle any style, but he knows to work on the back of Marty Skaggs after the backbreaker. Wait! Taylor Hicks in the ring.
[Taylor Hicks runs in the ring to take out Storm, but CJ Cage runs in the ring as well, knocking Hicks to the mat. Cage takes Hicks by the hair and throws him over the top rope to the floor as Storm lets go of his hold and brings Skaggs to his feet. Storm holds Skaggs up for CJ Cage who shoots off the ropes and his Skaggs with a flying dropkick. Cage goes back to the ring apron and asks for a tag, but Trent Storm goes for the cover.]
Tito Hernandez: Near fall there after that dropkick. CJ Cage wanted the tag, but Storm didn't give it to him.
[Trent Storm picks up Skaggs and rams his head on the top turnbuckle and then spins him around. CJ Cage is screaming for the tag, but Storm doesn't acknowledge it. He rears back and hits Skaggs with a HUGE chop the chest. And another.]
[From behind, Taylor hicks runs in the ring and pulls Trent Storm away. Hicks goes to punch Storm in the face, but Storm ducks and Hicks hits Skaggs in the face with a hard right hand. Storm grabs Taylor's arms and spins him around, dropping him face first to the mat with the Unprettier.]
Tito Hernandez: THE PERFECT STORM!!! But Hicks isn't the legal man! Skaggs is!
[Storm takes Skaggs and takes him to the middle of the ring. He whips him into the ropes and runs forward with full force.]
Tito Hernandez: PWNED! PWNED! PWNED!!! TRENT STORM JUST PWNED MARTY SKAGGS!!!
[Storm grabs the legs of Marty Skaggs and locks him in the Storm Warning, but from behind Storm is attacked.]
Tito Hernandez: CJ Cage! CJ Cage just hit Storm in the back of the head with McMahon's briefcase! What is this?!
[CJ Cage takes the briefcase and smashes it in the midsection of Trent Storm, and Storm immiedately begins coughing up blood yet again. CJ Cage pulls Storm to the middle of the ring and ascends to the top rope. He points at Storm and then spits directly on his face from the top rope and jumps off with the Shooting Star Press.]
Tito Hernandez: The Thunderstorm Plunge right there, that's Trent Storm's move. For the second week in a row, the delusional CJ Cage has taken out Trent Storm and for what? Jealousy? Greed? He is a delusional *******!
[Storm rolls around on the mat in pain as McMahon and Cage leave the ring.]
Tito Hernandez: It's been a great night of action so far tonight, but things are about to get a little more violent. Please let me introduce, Jaxxon Stone and Julio Morello...THE CARSON CITY CONVICTS!!!
[The lights in the arena go out as "Locked Up" by Akon hits. The lights then begin to flicker on and off as the Carson City Convicts make their way out to the ring to a HUGE chorus of boos. Triple C yell and swear at all the fans as they make their way to the ring.]
Tito Hernandez: Welcome guys, it's great to have you here in the IWC.
Jaxxon Stone: YOU IDIOTS NEED TO SHUT THE **** UP!!!
Tito Hernandez: There isn't any need for that language guys.
Jaxxon Stone: You can join them. Now get the hell outta my ring.
[Tito leaves the ring as the fans begin making siren noises as if the police were coming to get Triple C. Triple C just look on in disgust.]
Jaxxon Stone: At the last show, we were supposed to be in action against some punk ass bitches who call themselves The Click. But you idiots wanna know what happened? Those pussies proved how yellow they are. They backed out. Hell, they didnt even show up to the ****in arena. They heard what we are all about. They heard where we came from and those bitches wanted no piece of us. Tell em' brother.
Julio Morello: We showed up at the last show for a fight and that prick out there Tito Hernandez wouldnt give it to us. He knew, just like all of you stupid Chicago fans know that we can kick anyone in this arenas ass. It dont matter if its those dumb white boys in the click and it dont matter if its any of you. We'll take you ALL on and we'll kick all of your asses. Cuz thats how we do it. Carson City style.
Fans: GET THE **** OUT!!! *CLAP CLAP CLAP* GET THE **** OUT!!! *CLAP CLAP CLAP*
Jaxxon Stone: We aint goin anywhere. We do what we want, when we wanna do it. You call this place the "Windy City"? Well to us, it will always be known as the ***** city. We wanna kick somebodies ass. We dont care if they are from this hell hole of a city or if they are from poor ass third world country. You better get us some challengers for the next event Tito, or we are gonna start taking **** into our own hands. You got it, bitch?
Julio Morello: **** that Jaxx, we dont need to wait for ****. I say we do things our way right now.
[Triple C hop out of the ring and begin going upto the fans and making fun of them. They go all around the ringside swearing at everyone and ridiculing them until they come to the section where Maximum Carnage Security are standing. They try to get Triple C to leave, but Jaxxon & Julio deck MCS with fists and they begin brawling back toward the ring.]
[The four men get into the ring and MCS hit a double dropkick on both members of Triple C. James Ramage begins pounding on Jaxxon Stone in the corner, but Jaxxon shoves Ramage towards the ropes and hits him with the Prison Beating. Ramage rolls out of the ring in pain as Julio whips Nick Pellett into Jaxxon and Jaxxon nails him as well with the Prison Beating.]
[Jaxxon points up as Julio picks up Nick Pellett in a brain buster position. Julio walks over to the turnbuckle and Jaxxon climbs it and they hit Pellett with the Second Degree Finisher.]
Fans: HOLY ****!!! HOLY ****!!! HOLY ****!!!
[They kick Pellett out of the ring and Jaxxon grabs the mic again]
Jaxxon Stone: We dont give a **** who it is Tito. You better get us some damn competition for the next event, or we are comin after your ass.
[Jaxxon drops the mic as Triple C's music hits and they continue swearing at the fans on their way to the back.]
Tito Hernandez: Well that was very unexpected. But we're going to get right back into the action. We still have two matches on the night and we're not going to hold them back from you.
Josh Douglas vs "The Prodigy" Owen Michaels
["Cult of Personality" by Living Color hits and "The Prodigy" Owen Michaels slowly walks out and ignores the fans as they try to slap his hand. He enters the ring to a chorus of boos.]
Tito Hernandez: The following contest is scheduled for one fall with a fifteen minute time limit. First entering the ring, from Toronto, Canada..."The Prodigy" Owen Michaels
["Forget to Remember" by Mudvayne hits and Josh Douglas runs out and slaps hands with all the fans around the ringside area.]
Tito Hernandez: And his opponent, he hails from right here in Chicago, Illinois... Josh Douglas
Tito Hernandez: And we are underway. This match was supposed to go down at the first IWC event, but due to scheduling conflicts, it was unable to go down.
[The two men lock up with a collar and elbow tie up in the middle of the ring, but Owen Michaels quickly backs away and goes over to the ropes and taunts the fans as they begin to boo. Josh Douglas then gets on the ropes and poses as the fans cheer him loudly, much to the dismay of Owen Michaels. They lock up again in the middle of the ring and Owen Michaels gets a headlock on Josh Douglas. Josh Douglas hits a couple forearms to the back of Owen Michaels and pushes him off into the ropes, but Owen Michaels knocks Douglas to the mat with a shoulder block. Michaels runs off the ropes and hops over Douglas. Douglas gets to his feet and hits a deep arm drag takeover sending Michaels to the mat.]
Tito Hernandez: Shades of Ricky Steamboat there with that deep armdrag. No one did it better than him, but that one looked pretty good.
[They meet again in the middle of the ring, but Douglas gets Michaels in a headlock this time. Michaels lifts Douglas into the air and hits a high angle back suplex. Douglas holds his neck as Michaels begins to twist it. Michaels backs up to the ropes and comes off dropping a knee on the back of Josh Douglas' neck. Michaels gets down and applies a side headlock on Douglas as the fans begin to chant his name.]
Fans: DOUGLAS!!! DOUGLAS!!! DOUGLAS!!!
[Josh Douglas begins to feed off the crowd reaction and starts getting to his feet as Owen Michaels keeps the headlock applied. Douglas starts hitting another series of stiff forearms to the back of Owen Michaels and pushes him off into the ropes again. Michaels bounces back and Douglas hits a dropkick and goes for the cover.]
[Owen Michaels kicks out.]
Tito Hernandez: Not enough damage has been done to secure a pinfall yet.
[Josh Douglas takes Owen Michaels into the corner and licks his hand as he hits a hard slap to the chest of Owen Michaels.}
[Douglas tells the fans to keep quiet as he licks his hand again and hits another huge slap to the chest of Michaels.]
[Owen Michaels staggers out of the corner as Josh Douglas hits the ropes. As he bounces off, Owen Michaels hits a quick powerslam. Michaels puts a knee into the back of Douglas and begins to pull back on Douglas' neck as the ref gets in to see if Douglas wants to submit. Douglas says no and tries to reach out of the ropes, but Michaels releases the hold and drops an elbow to the back of the neck.]
Tito Hernandez: Owen Michaels is really focusing on the neck of Josh Douglas after he hit that high back suplex early in the match.
[Michaels lifts Douglas to his feet and irish whips him hard into the turnbuckle. Michaels climbs to the top and places his knee at the back of Michaels neck as the ref begins the 5 count. 1...2...3...4, Michaels lets go as Douglas stumbles out of the corner. Douglas bends over and Michaels takes the opportunity to come off the top rope with a hard knee to the back of the neck which drops Douglas to the mat.]
[Michaels moves in and starts hitting stiff kicks to the head of Josh Douglas as he tries to get to his feet. Douglas gets to the ropes, but Michaels wraps Douglas' head around the top rope and starts pulling back on it as the ref counts again. 1...2...3...4, Michaels releases it and brings Douglas to the middle of the ring and hits him with a stalling neckbreaker. He goes for the cover.]
[Douglas kicks out at two. Michaels quickly grabs Douglas by the neck and locks him in the triangle choke. The ref checks it to see if Douglas is still awake and the fans begin to stomp their feet to get behind Josh Douglas. Michaels pulls on the arm of Douglas to sink it in more, but Douglas tries getting to his knees to release the grip that Owen Michaels has with the triangle choke. Douglas gets on one knee and tries to stand up as Michaels keeps it locked on as best he can.]
Tito Hernandez: Josh Douglas is almost to his feet, but Owen Michaels is keeping the pressure applied with the choke.
[Douglas lifts Michaels into the air in a powerbomb position as Michaels still keeps the choke on. Douglas runs towards the turnbuckle and smashes Michaels into it with a turnbuckle powerbomb, causing Michaels to release the triangle choke. Douglas mounts Michaels and begins hitting him with fists to the forehead. He picks up Michaels and hits him with a dragon suplex, but he cant keep the bridge as his neck is still in pain and it causes him to release his arms from Michaels waist.]
[Michaels gets up and waits for Douglas to get to his feet. Michaels bounces off the ropes and hits a stiff yakuza kick to the head of Douglas. Douglas doesnt go down, but he bounces off the ropes and hits Michaels with a yakuza kick of his own.

I'd give you a round of applause Alex, but that's usually only applicable in situations where I'm at least moderately impressed.

[The boos and jeers begin.]
Mayor: So I'll give you your little moment in the sun, but next week I have a contract for you and Insaniac one more time. And I'm not going to stop until Insaniac ends your pitiful little career and we put this city right where it belongs...on the shelves and in the gutter.
[The fans boo while Lafland grabs a microphone.]

[Insanaic grabs Lafland and hurls him shoulder first into the metal turnbuckle.

As Insaniac gets back to his feet, Lafland comes diving off to hit Insaniac with a double axe handle, but instead is driven down with an STO, using his momentum against him. The ring shakes viciously and the fans gasp as their hometown hero crashes into the canvas hard.]
