View Full Version : A Jumper's Tale (Part 2 - CVerse)
10-25-2008, 12:58 AM
You know, you learn something or two about how to take a beating when your career revolves around it. You don't know it, I'm not just a pro wrestler. I've spent some time in the world of MMA, I wasn't anything spectacular, but I knew how to take beatings. That kind of led to my career in wrestling, I got beat up too much and wanted to actually know the feeling of being on top. So these thugs beating me up isn't anything I can't handle. You just have to phase out. I just hope they don't tear my pants. I don't have the money for a new pair... Shirts are easy though, I do have direct control over merchandise. I just need to figure out what I'm going to do with the Zone. Though, that phone call... something could happen with Mexico.
Woah, this is... different. I'm not in my office anymore. No sign of the thugs. Where did they take me?
Wait a second, I know who that is. That's George DeColt! What the hell does he have to do with this? Did the money come from him? Woah, he's coming right at me.
“Alex! Are you paying attention to me?”
Did he just call me Alex?
“I don't feel well. Can I be excused?”
“Yeah, hurry back. We need to talk about setting up for Elimination.”
I walked around the house until I found the bathroom, entered, and shut the door. I splashed some water on my face and looked in the mirror, surprised at what I saw looking back at me. Alex DeColt. The second of the DeColt siblings and the one in charge of booking CGC. I wiped my face with a hand towel and instinctively checked my pocket.
There was a piece of paper.
“Welcome to your new life... as Alex DeColt. We'll be in touch.”
Oh boy. It wasn't a dream. And it's starting again.
For those of you just joining us, part 1 is here (http://126.96.36.199/~arles/forum/showthread.php?t=33359) and chronicles the story of William Peers in CZCW. I did it because infinitywpi is my hero. Now with that chapter done, here is chapter 2.
10-25-2008, 09:43 PM
“Good Alex, you're back. Are you feeling alright?”
“Yeah, I just felt weird there for a second.”
“Alright, so what are your plans for Elimination?”
Plans for Elimination? I don't even know what the state of the union is right now! I need to get out of here... and fast.
“I'm sorry, I know I should have more for you right now, but I think I need to lie down. I really don't feel well.”
“No, you're not getting out of this booking meeting. I want some answers and I want them now.”
George you should have let me go. I really DON'T feel well. WHARF!
“Ah, Jesus, Al. Alright, let's get you to your room.”
Thankfully George is escorting me, I don't know where the hell I'm going. And I need to get some sleep.
“I'll send your mother up with dinner later. Rest up, I'm going to expect some work out of you tomorrow.”
I suppose I should get some work done, but... this bed is comfortable....
10-26-2008, 03:38 PM
So what do I have to work with here?
Arguably the best of the DeColt brothers. Jack has a natural talent for connecting with a crowd. He's a top player, being World Champion 4 times and Tag Champion 5 times.
The oldest and most talented DeColt brother. Steve has what it takes to make it anywhere. The thing is he often takes a back seat to Jack. Case in point, he's held the World belt 3 times and the Tag belt 4 times, usually with Jack.
The youngest and greenest of the brothers. He's got all the potential in the world, but his consistency is a bit suspect. Either the real Alex saw something big in him or George wanted the young one to get a hold of the strap. He's held the Canadian Title twice and is the current holder of the World Title.
Not a great performer by any stretch of the imagination, but he's where he's at thanks to his friendship with the real Alex. He can get by in a pinch and with the help of Adrian Garcia and the Elite should have no problem staying over. He's held the tri-fecta of titles in CGC.
An over the top heel and solid wrestler. Eddie has what is needed to be in the top in a promotion like this. His partnership with the Elite will help serve his goals. He's also held the tri-fecta of titles, with the Tag Titles three times.
One of the most respected guys in the business, it was good for business to bring Tyler in after DaVE went out of business. He should fit in nicely in the top, at least until it's time to hang up his boots. He held the World Title twice over ten years ago.
Ed is tough and he knows what he's doing. He's not a spectacular worker by any means, but he has the ability to look good out there. He's a former three time World Champion, two time Tag Champion, and one time Canadian Champion. At 46, I expect his retirement soon.
Ryan is the future of CGC, along with Ricky DeColt and some guys from the midcard. He's a solid wrestler and knows how to rile up the crowd. He's making some big money under a written contract right now and should get plenty of face time.
Whippy the Clown
Whippy is on the borderline to success right now. He's been saddled with the silly gimmick, but has just enough charisma to make it work. A hot feud should propel him to the top and teach him at the same time.
Alex DeColt... me
The brother with the most to gain and lose. George DeColt has made it no secret that Alex is being groomed to take the company over someday. The least talented in ring of the four, Alex has made his career on passionate promos and wild brawls. He's held the World Title 3 times and the Tag strap twice. I've been brought here for some reason, but I don't know what.
The only thing Bobby needs to do is learn to show charisma and cut a promo and he'll be on top of Canada Sports Entertainment. Along with his partner Nate Johnson, he's become a very hot commodity. One half of the five time Tag Team Champions.
Like his partner Bobby, he has all the talent in the world, it will just take some proper coaxing for him to become a star. One half of the five time Tag Team Champions.
Destiny replaced Chance in the Soldiers of Fortune and the duo hasn't lost a step. He's a solid midcard wrestler and won't likely go anywhere anytime soon.
Fate was carried in his CGC run by his old partner Chance. Once Chance retired, it was a mad scramble to find a replacement. While Destiny hasn't disappointed, Fate has had to work much harder to stay over.
Lee's a flashy, entertaining wrestler and along with his partner Shane will see a lot of time on CGC TV. As long as he continues to improve, he could be a future World Champion.
It's just a matter of time before Youth Energy is given their time to shine. Shane is Mr. Consistency and will never be unneeded.
Shooter isn't only the future of CGC, but of wrestling in general. With the help of the Elite, Shooter will make a major name for himself. He's already a former Canadian Champion and is looking to get the belt again.
Trent is finally getting his long deserved push. The kid can go in the ring and has charisma to spare. That's why they called his number in August 2007 and gave him the Canadian Title. He has plenty of guys to feud with too.
Nathan is nothing spectacular for CGC. He has wrestling skills, but without a personality, he won't see a lot of time on TV. If he improves, he could find a larger role though. My plan? Team him up with the next man...
A French-Canadian, eh? Well, Philippe doesn't have much going for him other than his charisma. He'll have a lot of improving to do if he wants to stay with the DeColts. And if his team with Nathan Black, Different Strokes, can do some improving, he can stay.
The Bronzed God
Zeus Maxmillion has really found the gimmick that will make him a star. Much like Kashmir Singh, going over the top has really started to get Zeus noticed. He only needs time to be showcased and he'll get over.
Quibble's nothing more than a jobber. He's not that talented and unless he sits under the learning tree, i don't expect him to amount to much.
Christian has some impressive brawler skills and should be able to crawl out of jobberdom someday.
Jesse hasn't done much in his career except spend some time in the Coastal Zone and inexplicably win the Tag belts twice with his brother there. He won't have that luck here.
See Jesse Gilbert.
This man is the reason the Elite have been able to get so over through their multiple configurations over the years. He has a natural aura of heeldom that the fans hate. You'll see plenty of him.
He's a helping hand backstage taking role of the Road Agent. If Chance can't keep the boys in line, no one can.
The rookie referee, Coach Norman. He doesn't have the skill of Francis Long, but he'll have to replace him someday and needs to get some experience under his belt.
Farrah can do anything and here she's the color woman for Jerome Turner. She knows her stuff and often makes him sound dumb, which makes a lot of the boys laugh.
Francis is a very good referee and should become great in the next couple years. In case someone else comes knocking, he'll be helping Coach Norman grow.
My “father” and the man who created CGC as a playground for his sons. George has a great mind as was once a great wrestler. He's the on screen authority figure, but may get shuffled to the commentary desk if Farrah doesn't keep me totally happy.
Jack's future wife. She doesn't do a whole lot, except look really good, but she is an effective prop for storyline purposes.
Jenny is the reason that Youth Energy have been able to catch on with the non-workrate fans. She cuts a mean promo and looks damn good.
Jerry has been the voice of CGC for some time now and is getting slowly better. Working with Farrah has been helping him not make such an ass of himself.
Big Rog uses his wheelchair to gain either big sympathy heat or manipulative cripple heel heat. Either way, he can get the job done when he needs to.

A knock comes from my door before it opens. It's George.
“Alright Al, you've had some time to rest. Have you used any of it to think?”
“Yes, yes I have. I have some good plans coming ahead.”
“Good. I have some guidelines for you for the new year. Important stuff. I want you to make sure that Jack and Steve stay the biggest threats in the company. Make sure they are at the top of the card, keep their momentum, and popularity. I'm not going to take big chances unless I have to.”
“That's fine, it fits in with my plans.”
“You're going to need to hire another worker or two. But when you do, make sure they can work. We're not going to hire guys that don't know what they're doing in the ring. Ok?”
“We have guys on written contracts and are getting paid whether they work or not. Make sure they have to work for their pay check. Side note, since we're going to stay in a more traditional vein, stay away from the MMA style guys. They don't fit in here.”
“Yeah, the most important goal. Keep up with the Joneses. I want this promotion to be prestigious and important. Make sure to keep it that way.”
“You got it... Dad.”
That was weird. Calling a true legend "Dad". This family thing is going to take some getting used to... At least Peers was a lonely, lonely man with no one to love him.
“Alright. Now that we've got that out of the way, let's talk about plans.”
“Well, first off, some new signings...”
Coming to the end of his career, we have a tremendous respect for Alex Braun. Seeing the lack of faces on the roster, it's felt that his hand could be a big help in the midcard. Especially since he'll be part of a veteran tag team.
With everyone's favorite Canadian, Steve Flash. Together, these guys should see one last glory run. They are both more than capable in the ring and in the end should be able to teach the young guys a lot about the wrestling business.
Cal has been around the Canadian scene for quite some time, but he never has gotten the recognition he deserves. Hopefully we'll be able to get him some TV time and maybe a jolt of popularity. The main plan will be to team him with Christian Price.

What happened to me, you may ask? Fallout 3. I'm not out of the addiction woods yet, but I want to play TEW again, so here I am.
Sunday, Week 1, January 2008.
CGC Title Bout Wrestling
Moose Jaw Centre (The Prairies, Canada)
Dark Match: Ed Monton and Whippy the Clown def. Soldiers of Fortune in 5. (D-)
Dark Match: Old School def. The Gilbert Brothers in 6. (E+)
Match 1: Different Strokes vs. Youth Energy
The first teaming of Nathan Black and Philippe LaGrenier isn't a complete disaster. They put together a bit of entertaining tag formula together before getting overwhelmed by the fluidity of Youth Energy. (D-)
The young prima donna, Trent Shaffer makes his way to the ring. He's clad in an expensive looking silk shirt and dark sunglasses. The fans quickly despise the smugness coming from the Canadian Champion as he steps into the ring.
Shaffer: “It seems as if all you Moose Jaw Mooks don't know how to give the respect a man of my caliber deserves.”
He pauses, allowing the crowd to boo him.
Shaffer: “Well, if you can't be polite, then I'm not going to give you the pleasure of seeing me in that ring, beating someone from turnbuckle to turnbuckle to defend this title.”
The fans cheer that, thinking they'll be rid of him now.
Shaffer: “I won't defend my title here tonight, but I'm setting out an open challenge for next week. I'll be waiting in the ring to start the show and will expect someone of a high standard to confront me in the ring. I don't defend this title against any Tom, Dick, or Harry. Only someone of an outstanding pedigree need apply. I'll be waiting, next week.”
Match 2: Eric Tyler vs. Cal Sanders
This is a quick clinic on how to pick apart an opponent without much trouble. Eric Tyler focuses on the knee of Sanders immediately and builds up to the Tradition Lift for the win. (D+)
Tyler, breaking only a slight sweat, grabs a microphone. He's barely winded as he speaks.
Tyler: “That is an example of what I'll do to every wrestler that stands in my way. I have one goal, and one goal only. The CGC World Championship. It never should have left my grasp in the first place, and once I get it back, the only way I'll relinquish it is when someone pries it from my cold, dead hands. Ricky DeColt, you're on notice. That belt will be mine.”
Match 3: Ryan Powell vs. Alex DeColt
Simple, but very entertaining match here. Powell cheats early to gain the advantage, but one mistake is all Alex needs to be able to come back and hit the DeColt Driver for the win. (B-)
Adrian Garcia is in the back with Eddie Chandler, Dan DaLay, and Shooter Deeley. They are finishing preparations for the main event, where they will face the three remaining DeColts.
Garcia: “DeColt family, for years you have fought the Elite and for years you have failed at every turn. We're not going to leave this company, we're going to take it over. George, you've filled the world with propaganda against us and your sons have especially taken to your brain washing. It's just a matter of time until the Elite finally destroy the DeColts once and for all.”
Main Event: Dan DaLay, Eddie Chandler, and Shooter Deeley vs. Jack, Ricky, and Steve DeColt
While not quite up to the quality of the semi-main event match, this was no disappointment. A battle between the six men kept the crowd enthralled until the final bell, when Steve was able to hit the DeColt Stampede on Eddie and grab the pinfall victory. (C+)
The three DeColts celebrate their victory, but not for long, as they are blind-sided by the entire Elite stable. The Specialists join Eddie, Dan, and Shooter in dismantling the DeColts. The attack continues until a swarm of officials, along with Alex DeColt, Ed Monton, and Whippy the Clown force the break.
Overall Rating: C
TV Rating: 0.45
11-10-2008, 01:29 PM
We've procured a new wrestler for the CGC roster.
Much like Cal Sanders, Thomas Morgan has been around the Canadian scene for quite some time. He's very talented and should have reached something in his career, however he's been overlooked since day one. I'm not promising he won't be overlooked here, but he should be a solid face in the midcard.
Sunday, Week 2, January 2008.
CGC Title Bout Wrestling
Varsity Arena (Ontario, Canada)
Dark Match: Thomas Morgan, Cal Sanders, and Christian Price def. The Bronzed God and Different Strokes in 6. (E+)
Dark Match: Youth Energy def. The Soldiers of Fortune in 6. (D)
Trent Shaffer makes good on his claims as he starts off the show in the ring.
Trent: “It looks like I'm in the most worthless province of Canada... I can't help but fight back vomit as I look around this arena. These are wrestling fans? I'm disgusted.”
The fans hate on Trent for his unfriendly words.
Trent: “I've given the locker room a week to stew on my challenge. I'm a man of my word, so I will defend my title against a man of worth.”
A moment passes as Trent saunters around the ring, looking like he's about to run someone over. However, his face suddenly goes from ****y to scared ****less as Jack DeColt comes out to answer the challenge.
Trent: “Whoa! Wait a second, I – I didn't mean you!”
Jack: “What's the matter Trent? You wanted to face someone of a high standard. Well, you don't get of any higher standard than a DeColt.”
Trent bails from the ring as soon as Jack enters. He looks like he's going to walk away, but Jack gives chase and Trent slides into the ring. Jack follows and is cut off immediately.
Match 1: Trent Shaffer © vs. Jack DeColt (CGC Canadian Championship)
Trent holds the control by cheating, but not for too long, as Jack fights back with the help of the crowd. He gets several near falls, which causes Trent to leave the ring, grab his belt, and get counted out.
We cut to the back, where Adrian Garcia is with the Specialists, Bobby Thomas, and Nate Johnson.
Garcia: “I was approached earlier this week by the new team consisting of Steve Flash and Ace Braun, Old School. They said that out of all the teams in CGC, they were most deserving of a shot at the Tag Titles. I thought about their claim for awhile and came to the conclusion that if Bobby and Nate are to be considered the greatest tag team of all time, then defeating Steve Flash and Ace Braun is a forgone conclusion. To make a long story short, I decided to grant their request for a title match against the greatest tag team in Canadian history. Because no team will ever take the titles away from the Specialists.”
Match 2: The Specialists © vs. Old School (CGC Tag Team Championship)
Old School come out of the block looking good together in the ring. Their good teamwork is completely eclipsed by Bobby and Nate once the Specialists take control. The fans get behind the challengers, though, and give Steve Flash the power to make the tag. Ace Braun looks like he is about to get the win, when Adrian Garcia trips him up and he takes a Special Delivery.
Eric Tyler comes to the ring in preparation for his upcoming match.
Tyler: “It doesn't matter who it is. No matter the opponent, the outcome is going to be the same. The Bastion of Tradition will walk out the victor. And I will make my way to the World Title. That is a guarantee.”
Match 3: Eric Tyler vs. Ed Monton
Not much of a challenge for Eric Tyler. Ed Monton may be a veteran with a lot of experience, but Eric Tyler is a better veteran with a great deal more experience. The Tradition Lift ends the match in short time.
The three remaining DeColt boys, Alex, Steve, and Ricky, are in the back finishing preparations for their upcoming six man match.
Ricky: “Dan, it looks like you've won the chance at my World Title. My dad didn't want to give the shot to you, but I think after the attacks you've perpetrated against me and my brothers, I want a chance to get in the ring against you, one on one. So at Elimination... prepare to be eliminated.”
Alex: “Steve-O! It looks like Dan's going to be busy with Ricky. What are we going to do for Elimination?”
Steve: “That's a fine question. I think the Tag Team Champions still have an open dance card. Maybe we should take those belts.”
Alex: “That's quite a thought. I'll talk to Dad after the show tonight.”
Ricky: “Whoa guys, let's not look past our opponents. We have Dan DaLay, Ryan Powell, and Shooter Deeley in the ring tonight.”
Steve: “What's your point?”
Ricky: “I guess I don't have one. Let's go kick their asses.”
Main Event: Dan DaLay, Ryan Powell, and Shooter Deeley vs. Alex, Ricky, and Steve DeColt
This match consisted of the DeColt boys running through their opponents for several minutes, but every attempt at a pinfall getting broken up. Alex DeColt is the first brother to get cut off with a nasty lariat to the throat by Dan DaLay. Steve DeColt is ripped off the apron right before a hot tag by Eddie Chandler. As Ricky goes to help Steve, Shooter locks on his Front Choke Lock, forcing Alex to tap out.

highly recommend sticking with blue or red print the rest stains the eyes.
Otherwise good stuff.
11-10-2008, 10:25 PM
The green is a bit bright, but is the sienna ok with Adrian Garcia? I'll keep it in mind for future posts. (Like this one!) And thanks for reading!
The locker room in CGC has been described as a fairly good place in professional wrestling, mainly because of the DeColt brothers, but this is professional wrestling, and from time to time people act up. This is one of those times. You wouldn't guess it from his on screen persona, but Dan DaLay is a really nice guy. He was the real Alex's best friend, which I guess is the reason he came to get me.
“What's up Dan?”
“Bobby's causing some trouble. You might want to talk to him about it.”
I made my way to the locker room to find Francis Long with a red face to match a large red stain on his ref shirt.
“Bobby... what the hell?”
“It was a prank. A trick pen is all. It's really Francis' fault. Who wants an autograph from a referee?”
“Not cool, Bob. Pranks are fine until they ruin something. You just ruined a CGC referee shirt. Now we have to get him a new one. Do me a favor and lay off.”
“Sorry Al, I'll try not to let it happen again.”
“Thank you. It's all I ask.”
Well, at least it was mostly harmless. I doubt Francis could do anything about it. I suppose I should keep better tabs on the locker room though. The real problem is that Elimination is now being thrust upon me. I flaked out and thought I had another show between now and then, but I don't. So we're going into a Pay-Per-View with no build up. This is not going to be a pretty sight...
11-11-2008, 11:13 PM
Friday, Week 3, January 2008.
Varsity Arena (Ontario, Canada)
Dark Match: Philippe LaGrenier and the Bronzed God def. Ed monton and Thomas Morgan in 5. (D-)
Dark Match: The Soldiers of Fortune def. Cal Sanders and Christian Price in 5. (E+)
Dark Match: Ace Braun def. Grimm Quibble in 4. (E, don't click)
The PPV starts off with Jack and Steve in their locker room.
Jack: “Well, it looks like you didn't get exactly what you wanted Steve. No Tag Title match for you tonight, but you do get a shot at the piece of crap who cost you the match on Sunday.”
Steve: “Oh Jack, I will make Eddie pay for costing me a match. It's not something I take lightly. But it's not just about me. You got screwed out of the Canadian Title on Sunday, yourself.”
Jack: “That's right, and I guess that's why Dad made this match for us. You and I get to tag together again and reign Hell down on Eddie Chandler and Trent Shaffer.”
Steve: “They'll learn their lesson tonight. Don't mess with a DeColt.”
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/RyanPowell.jpg vs. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/SteveFlash.jpg
Match 1: Ryan Powell vs. Steve Flash
The fast paced opener that had been booked didn't quite turn out as planned. Ryan and Steve don't quite have the chemistry in there together. At least it was the opener. The end comes with Ryan getting a cheap shot with an international object on an in control Steve Flash for a quick pin.
We cut to the back, where Lee Rivera and Shane Nelson are with Jenny Playmate, their manager. Youth Energy are dressed up like the Specialists and Jenny Playmate stands in front of them. Lee and Shane are carrying little foam replica belts over their shoulders.
Jenny: “It was a very difficult decision to sign the contract pitting my Specialists against the most spectacular team of Youth Energy.”
Shane drops the goofy look on his face and nods.
Jenny: “We're very likely going to lose the Tag Titles tonight, but it's been one hell of a run. You see, we and the Elite talk a big game, but we are hardly able to back it up without cheating. That's why you'll never see me far from my men. Without me, they'd be working for some midget!”
Lee looks worried.
Jenny: “Don't you worry. As long as I'm by your side, you'll never lose those belts. I won't allow it!”
The three walk out of the shot in an all business manner, but Shane trips over some cords right as they do.
We cut over to Adrian Garcia and the Specialists. They look none too happy and Nate and Bobby make sure to show the real belts off proudly.
Garcia: “Oh, you three are REALLY funny. Everyone wants to imitate greatness, but it takes the real deal to hold onto these belts. My men won these belts fair and square. They defend them in an honorable manner. But tonight, they aren't just going to rest with a simple victory... They're going to rip you limb from limb. Choose your enemies wisely. You don't want to make a poor choice.”
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/BobbyThomas.jpghttp://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/NateJohnson.jpg vs. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/LeeRivera_alt1.jpghttp://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/ShaneNelson_alt1.jpg
Match 2: The Specialists © vs. Youth Energy (CGC Tag Team Championship)
These four have a tendency to put on a good match whenever they get into the ring together. This time both managers found themselves getting involved. Adrian would give the Specialists an unfair advantage that would quickly be evened up by Jenny. In the end, it was up to the wrestlers to decide the victor and the Specialists made good on their promo, defeating Youth Energy and retaining the belts.
Eric Tyler makes his way to the ring once again.
Tyler: “I've been told that I need to prove myself before I'm going to be given a shot at the World Title. I've defeated everyone that's been put before me and I'm going to continue that tonight. I'm not going to be facing any man... I'm going to be facing a... clown. I hate clowns.”
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/EricTyler.jpg vs. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/WhippyTheClown.jpg
Match 3: Eric Tyler vs. Whippy the Clown
At least Eric has a good reason to hate this clown. They don't click at all in the ring and a poor match was the result. Eric tried to save it by slowing it down and turning to working on the legs, but the damage had been done. It was mercifully ended by a Tradition Lift.
Adrian Garcia is back in the backstage area, this time with another Elite member, Shooter Deeley.
Garcia: “Alex DeColt, what makes you think that tonight is going to be any different from Sunday? You're going to be back in the Front Choke Lock, and you're going to be tapping out to save your life. Shooter is the future of professional wrestling. You are the past. Get ready to pass the torch tonight.”
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/ShooterSeanDeeley.jpg vs. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/AlexDeColt.jpg
Match 4: Shooter Deeley vs. Alex DeColt
This match is a mixture between technical mastery and all out brawling. Shooter gets the Front Choke Lock slapped on early, but Alex is able to fight to the ropes. The match basically breaks down into a brawl at this point, with the ending coming as a double count out as the two men don't make it back into the ring.
We get a video documenting the events from Sunday leading up to the upcoming tag match between Jack & Steve DeColt and Eddie Chandler and Trent Shaffer. (C+)
And we go right back to Eddie Chandler, Trent Shaffer, and Adrian Garcia. Adrian begins to speak, but Eddie cuts him off.
Chandler: “You know what? I got this. I've got a problem with Steve DeColt. He thinks he's God's gift to wrestling, but I've got a news flash for him... I am. And not only am I... but so is my partner tonight, Trent Shaffer. This man, along with Shooter, is going to lead CGC into a new era of professional wrestling. But while they lead us into a new era, I'm going to be the man that destroys the old era. Steve, I'm starting with you.”
Trent: “Eddie baby, I've gotta thank you for teaming up with me tonight. Those DeColt boys don't have a sense of humor OR a sense of decency. You see, Jack DeColt thinks that he is a rightful challenger to MY Canadian Title. Just because he's the son of the boss, he thinks that he has a right to face me. Nepotism sure is grand, ain't it?”
Garcia: “We've been facing it for years. Perhaps, Trent, you should think about your alliances in this company and making a smart move. You do seem to be quite an Elite competitor.”
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/EddieChandler.jpghttp://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/TrentShaffer.jpg vs. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/JackDeColt.jpghttp://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/SteveDeColt.jpg
Match 5: Eddie Chandler and Trent Shaffer vs. Jack and Steve DeColt
Eddie and Trent were able to get past the initial bombardment by the DeColts and cut Jack off from his brother. They proceeded to make quick tags and wear Jack down for the next several minutes. Jack is finally able to get over to his corner and make the tag to Steve. This spelt the end for Eddie and Trent, as a DeColt Stampede finishes Trent off as Jack keeps Eddie busy.
We cut over to Ricky DeColt, in the back, ready for his match.
Ricky: “Dan, you've tried to put me and my brothers out for the past several years, but you always seem to come up short. What makes you think this time is going to be any different? I'm the World Champion. I'm the pinnacle of wrestling as it's known today. You can't just waltz in and expect to be the best. I'm sorry Danny boy, but you're going to find out why I'm the champion.”
We get a video chronicling the history between Dan and Ricky. In addition to the past couple of weeks, there have been attacks that have led back months by Dan onto Ricky. In their only other singles match, Dan was DQed for excessive violence and not listening to the referee's commands.

Main Event: Dan DaLay vs. Ricky DeColt © (CGC World Championship)
We had an ok main event on our hands that was brought down by the champion not being on his best game. Dan DaLay took advantage and powered the youngest DeColt into the mat many times. Ricky refused to stay down though and fought back until he sent DaLay over the top rope and to the floor. This brought out Eric Tyler, who slid in and assaulted the champion, causing a disqualification.
The attack continues after the match. Dan DaLay looks at the insane Eric Tyler and after a moment's thought leaves the Bastion of Tradition to demolish Ricky until the other DeColts run out and chase him off.

Ouch. Let down by every match on the card... well, except mine and Shooter's. Maybe if I slip out of here quickly enough, I won't...
“Alex! What the hell was that?”
It was the DeColt family patriarch.
“That show didn't go off as I planned.”
“I sure as hell hope not! That was a cluster. The semi-main was bad and I expect a lot more out of Dan and Ricky. You need to build these matches up more.”
“I agree with you 100% and by the time Luck of the Draw rolls around, you're going to be singing a different tune. Trust me.”
“Don't make me reconsider making you head booker.”
And he left, angry with the way the show turned out. He wasn't alone. I wasn't happy with the result either. Especially not in front of the hometown crowd.

CGC Title Bout Wrestling
Quebec City Arena (Quebec, Canada)
Dark Match: The Specialists def. Cal Sanders and Christian Price in 4. (D)
Dark Match: Jack DeColt def. Philippe LaGrenier in 5. (C-, don't click)
Dark Match: Al DeColt def. Nathan Black in 5. (D, don't click)
Match 1: Soldiers of Fortune vs. Youth Energy
Fate didn't do too much in the way of selling for his opponents, but Lee and Shane tried their damnedest to make the match entertaining for the fans. At least they are happy when the younger duo win.
Match 2: Shooter Deeley vs. Whippy the Clown
In a much better contest, Shooter and Whippy contrasted around the ring. Whippy was very successful with his high dives, but once Shooter was able to ground him, he wasn't able to come back. Shooter picks up the win with the Front Choke Lock.
Eric Tyler walks down to the ring with a look of purpose in his eye.
Tyler: “That damn clown is just another notch on my belt. I'm going to be the next challenger for the World Title. Just give me my match.”
Tyler is interrupted by the emergence of Ace Braun from the back. The fans give some love to the former New Jersey Devil.
Braun: “Eric, you and I go waaaay back, but something along the way must have snapped inside your head. I don't know where you get off saying that you are the Bastion of Tradition. Well, unless that tradition involves lying, cheating, and stealing everyone and anything in your path.”
Tyler: “Cut the talk... Ace... What do you want? Do you want a match? Do you want me to prove to you why I should be declared the #1 contender? Just say it, just say you want a match.”
Ace looks to the cheering crowd, then down at his clothes.
Braun: “I got my gear on, I'm ready for a fight. I want a match.”
Tyler: “Then get in here.”
Braun climbs into the ring as a referee runs out from the back.
Match 3: Eric Tyler vs. Ace Braun
Very good, technical affair from the two veterans of the ring. There are a lot of back and forth attacks from both sides of the ring, but it comes to a head when Eric Tyler wraps Braun's leg around the ring post. This sets up for the Tradition Lift and a reluctant submission from Braun.
We cut to the back, where Steve and Ricky DeColt prepare for the main event.
Ricky: “So it's going to be you and me taking on DaLay and Chandler?”
Steve: “You got it.”
Ricky: “Didn't Dan learn his lesson a couple nights ago? I beat him. He doesn't need to come for my belt now.”
Steve: “You know they'll never stop. You have to watch your back. They'll take any advantage they can.”
Ricky: “Well, they won't take this belt from me, you can bet on it.”
Steve: “Just be careful bro, I won't always be there to watch your back.”
Ricky: “I'm just ready to kick their asses.”
Steve: “Then let's go.”
The brothers head to the ring.
Main Event: Dan DaLay and Eddie Chandler vs. Ricky & Steve DeColt
The DeColt boys come out of the gates looking great and beating on their opponents, to the delight of the Quebec crowd. DaLay doesn't look as good as he usually does out there, and as a result, Eddie takes most of the punishment, until Adrian Garcia makes his presence known. DaLay and Chandler then take over and nearly beat Ricky several times until the hot tag to Steve. Steve cleans house and tags back out to Ricky, so he can take care of DaLay. As the referee is distracted, Adrian Garcia blasts Ricky DeColt with a chair, allowing Eddie to get an easy pin.
Steve isn't happy as he realizes Ricky has been hit with a chair and continues to brawl with DaLay and Chandler. He begins to get overpowered, when Ricky gets back into the fray and helps his big brother chase off the Elite.

I was going over my notes from the show, when Jack came into the room.
“What's up Jack?”
“Well, seeing that you're in charge, you better get ready to handle an incident.”
“Oh crap, not again...”
“Yeah, but make sure you handle it right tonight, because Farrah's messing with Marie.”
I made my way to the women's locker room to find Marie covered in a towel, screaming at Farrah.
“Girls, what the hell is going on here?”
Marie runs up to me with tears of anger in her eyes.
“She did something with my clothes. She took them and won't give them back!”
I look over to Farrah, who is rather calm, if not a little red.
“Why are you looking at me? What if I didn't do it?”
“Because you're the only other person who would be in the women's locker room, well, besides Jack, and I doubt he'd want Marie to be paraded in front of the boys without clothes. Just call it a hunch.”
“What about Jenny?”
“She isn't here tonight...”
“So what? It's just a prank.”
“Farrah, I'm not going to be tolerating this in the CGC locker room. You're good at your job, and I'd like to keep you around, but poor behavior isn't acceptable. Give Marie her clothes back and go about your business.”
“Fine, you've made your point. Your clothes are in the locker over there.”
Farrah opens a locker and Marie's clothes are indeed there.
“I hope you're happy.”
Farrah leaves and Marie looks at me like I should too. I put my hands up and walk out. As long as people aren't throwing fists, I should be able to handle them. I just hope no one messes with my brothers...

CGC Title Bout Wrestling.
Varsity Arena (Ontario, Canada)
Dark Match: Lee Rivera def. Nathan Black in 4. (D)
Dark Match: Shane Nelson def. Grimm Quibble in 4. (D-)
Dark Match: Eric Tyler and Shooter Deeley def. Ed Monton and Whippy in 6. (C-)
Match 1: The Bronzed God and Philippe LaGrenier vs. Old School
TBG put on a good fight, but once Philippe came in, incompetence showed through. Steve and Ace didn't really need the help though, as they were more than capable to put down their opponents.
Trent Shaffer walks to the ring with his Canadian Title fitted snugly around his waist. He takes his time as he steps into the ring to let the fans fester at his presence.
Trent: “I need a worthy opponent to challenge me for my belt. It's not enough for me to just steamroll over every nobody on the roster. I need a challenge. I need to know that I am the best in the world. So please, someone come out from the back and accept my challenge.”
A few seconds pass until Thomas Morgan steps out from the back. The fans give him a slight reaction.
Morgan: “Hey Trent, you want a challenge?”
Trent: “Yeah, I want to wrestle somebody in my league. Could you find someone?”
Morgan: “You're a real funny guy, Trent. You don't think I have what it takes to beat you? Try me.”
Trent: “Fine, go ahead and get in the ring.”
Match 2: Trent Shaffer © vs. Thomas Morgan (CGC Canadian Title)
Trent tries to attack Thomas as he enters, but is countered and put on the ropes. Thomas looks great out there, at least, until the Bronzed God trips him up into a Heart Burn from Shaffer and a loss as the champion makes a defense of his belt.
We cut backstage to see a beat down of Ricky DeColt just wrapping up. Dan DaLay and Eddie Chandler stand over the World Champion and give a few kicks before spotting the camera and leaving.
Match 3: Ryan Powell vs. Steve DeColt
Steve obviously hasn't seen that his little brother has been attacked, as he comes out for his match. It's an entertaining affair that sees Steve pick up the win with the DeColt Stampede.
After the match, Steve heads backstage to see Ricky being attended to by the medical staff.
Steve: “Who did this to you?”
Ricky: “Who else? DaLay and Chandler. Sons of bitches...”
Steve: “They're going to get theirs...”
Steve stalks off, leaving Ricky with the medics.
Coming back from commercial, Steve has a cameraman placed for an interview.
Steve: “DaLay, I know you're the ******* behind the attack on my brother. I'm not going to stand for this crap anymore. You want to fight someone? Fight someone who knows you're coming. Fight me.”
Main Event: The Specialists vs. Al & Jack DeColt
We are treated to a very good first half of a tag team match, the downfall comes with TV time limits, as the match ends at the ten minute mark, before any real story can be told.
The draw didn't stop the fight though, as the four men brawled around the ringside area until the credits cut through. These two teams will likely face off again.

Dark Match: The Soldiers of Fortune def. The Gilbert Brothers in 3. (E+)
Dark Match: Ed Monton def. Grimm Quibble in 2. (D-, good chemistry)
Dark Match: The Specialists def. Cal and Christian in 4. (D)
Ryan Powell starts the show in the backstage area.
Powell: “I find it difficult to be taken seriously around here. If your last name isn't DeColt, you can rely on the fact that you'll be shoved to the back... Except when they're looking for someone to beat on. I get to the arena tonight and told that I'll be pairing up with a complete dufus against Alex and Ricky DeColt. I'd be better off doing this by myself.”
Ryan looks off camera.
Powell: “Will you hurry it up? We've got a match.”
Philippe LaGrenier walks into the shot with a goofy smile on his face.
Philippe: “Oui oui!”
Match 1: Ryan Powell and Philippe LaGrenier vs. Alex and Ricky DeColt
Ryan was right to be frustrated. When he was in the ring, things didn't look to horrible, but once the tag came, Alex and Ricky had no problem destroying the annoying French-Canadian. Ryan decided this wasn't worth his time and walked out, leaving Philippe to the wolves.
We cut to the back, where Adrian Garcia is with his client, Dan DaLay.
Garcia: “Steve, I got the contract in the mail for your challenge against Dan DaLay. I must say I'm surprised by what was offered. You're going to put your spot in the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet on the line to face Dan DaLay? How delightful! You have your main event for tonight. We're prepared. I hope you are.”
Thomas Morgan comes to the ring in street clothes.
Morgan: “I'm not out here tonight for a match, but I am here to talk about my match last week. It seemed to me that I had everything under control... until the Bronzed God came out. He cost me the Canadian Title... and for that, I want a match against him next week.”
Thomas is interrupted by the Bronzed God himself, who comes to the entry way.
TBG: “Tomas! If you want a crack at the Bronzed God, all you have to do is ask. I will be happy to oblige. Next week, we will face off in the circle turned square and you will learn why I am a man of the Gods.”
Match 2: Shooter Deeley vs. Nathan Black vs. Jack DeColt
This is a very good match up to showcase the talents of all three men. Nathan Black looked slightly outclassed, but was able to keep up with Shooter's technical prowess. It's just too bad that Jack DeColt was in the match, because he was able to out fight both of them, pinning Nathan Black to get the win.
Eddie Chandler is in the back, decked out in a sequenced robe.
Chandler: “Steve Flash... a stalwart of professional wrestling. A man who has been everywhere and seen it all. It's good to see you can get a couple more checks to pad your retirement fund, but stepping into the ring with me can be detrimental to your health. You see, Steve, I'm kind of a big deal. I'm the man who's going to win the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet. I'm the man who's going to take the World Title from the littlest DeColt. And I'm the man who is going to be seen as the greatest wrestler in CGC history. If you don't believe me... well, then try me in that ring tonight.”
Match 3: Eddie Chandler vs. Steve Flash
Eddie makes surprisingly quick work of Steve Flash tonight. Steve looks good to start, but he's quickly out maneuvered and out cheated of a victory.
Back to Steve DeColt.
Steve: “Dan, I know you think that you're going to kill two birds with one stone tonight. You think you're going to beat me in the ring and you think you're going to get me out of the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet. I'm here to tell you that neither is going to happen and I'm going to go out to the ring to show you that I'm the better man. I hope you've spent your week preparing yourself for what I'm about to bring you.”
Main Event: Dan DaLay vs. Steve DeColt
And we end the show on an up note. Dan and Steve fight all over the ring and ringside area and make it an exciting bout for the fans to enjoy. Adrian Garcia tries to interfere on Dan's behalf, but is caught and sent to the back for his troubles. The new lack of interference leads to Steve being able to put the big man away with the DeColt Stampede to pick up the win.

The DeColt household is becoming more familiar to me. Dealing with family has its ups and downs, but so far, this life isn't as lonely as the one I faced while I was William Peers. I have a feeling that this place really can succeed it's just going to take some real work.
“Hey, uhhh... Dad, I've been thinking about something.”
“What's that Al?”
“Well, we need to build up our undercard more. The four of us can only fight the Elite for so long before it's going to get tired out. But I don't have enough time on the TV show to showcase anyone else other than us.”
“What do you suggest?”
“I want to contact the network and see if they'll give us some extra TV time.”
“More TV to produce, eh?”
“Yeah, I know it will be a challenge, but we've got to take some risks. I also have a lot of contracts I want to send out to bolster our roster. As it stands right now, no one has any room to move around.”
“You don't want too big of a roster. If that happens, you start to get egos clashing and people becoming unhappy that they aren't being used.”
“True, but with a small roster, you get people complaining that all they do is lose, because they don't have anyone around them that are equals.”
“Hmmm... you have a point. If you can get the network to agree to an increase in time, I'm all for it.”
“Awesome. Thanks Dad. You won't regret it.”
To the phones I go. I've got to pitch this just right...
11-29-2008, 11:25 PM
And with Maple Leaf Sports accepting our proposal to increase the show to 90 minutes, we're going to be adding on a few more tag teams to the roster.
Known as Too Hot most everywhere else he goes, he's been in a team with TJ Bailey in 4C for awhile now. They're good enough with each other that they should be a good fit in with the growing CGC Tag Team division. The only downside for TH is that he's known to break out into a dance routine in the middle of a match...
Jobber to the stars, TJ Bailey has been plying his trade in 4C for some time now. He doesn't have very many victories under his belt, with most of his tag victories being thanks to his partner Too Hot. He should fit in with the new Tag Team division here though, and maybe he'll pick up some pins of his own.
Flash is one half of a very popular tag team in MAW. He's Canadian by birth and has picked up a great deal of experience with his partner Oscar Golden. Flash is a fun kind of guy that the fans won't have any choice but to get behind... unless he doesn't want them to.
Like his tag team partner, Oscar is a naturally fun loving guy, but can play both sides of the field at any given time. There are high hopes for this young man and his partner.
These guys should fit in well with the roster...
wait a second, I said a few more tag teams, implying three...
Oh, I almost forgot these two guys!
The Triple Threat is fairly new to the wrestling scene, but he was trained by Rip Chord. I see nothing but potential in his future. Especially in his tag team with a fellow Canadian and amazing wrestler...
James is the future of wrestling in North America. Without a doubt, James is going to turn some heads here in CGC. Especially in his team with Davis Newton, The New Youth have a tailor made feud with Youth Energy. I see the money now.

Dark Match: Dan DaLay def. Too Sweet in 2. (D-)
George DeColt starts the show off by gracing us with his presence.
George: “Ladies and gentlemen, I want to announce that tonight will feature qualifying matches for the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet coming up on Friday. The full lineup will be featured on CGC.com tomorrow night. Make sure to head over there and order the Pay-Per-View from your cable or satellite provider.”
Match 1: The Bronzed God vs. Thomas Morgan
Thomas Morgan comes into the match with full intent on getting revenge, but what he ends up with is disappointment, as the Bronzed God cheats and uses the ropes for leverage to pick up the win.
Thomas Morgan complains to the referee that he was illegally held down. The Bronzed God grabs a microphone.
TBG: “You see, Tomas... I am the best of the best. You won't be able to defeat me in your wildest dreams. I hope that Mr. George saw this match and will place me in the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet, because I will become the number one contender if this is true.”
Thomas shakes his head in disgust at the Bronzed God.
Match 2: Grimm Quibble vs. Whippy the Clown
Grimm is no match for the much more seasoned Clown. Whippy flies circles around Grimm and comes out with the victory.
We cut back to Alex and Jack, preparing for their upcoming tag match.
Alex: “So, have you heard anything about these guys?”
Jack: “Not much, just that they're young and have some raw talent.”
Alex: “So they're about a dime a dozen, eh?”
Jack: “Yeah, I'm not too worried about it.”
Alex: “What are their names again?”
Jack: “James Hernandez and Davis Newton... They call themselves the New Youth.”
Alex: “Hmmm... well, the Old Youth”
Alex points at his brother and himself.
Alex: “are going to have to welcome them to CGC.”
Jack: “Heh, yeah we are.”
Match 3: The New Youth vs. Al & Jack DeColt
James and Davis put on a hell of a showing against Al and Jack. They actually look like they could someday have a chance at putting away the two most successful of the DeColt boys. Tonight isn't their night though, and James is forced to tap out by Jack's End of Days.
Trent Shaffer comes to the ring, ready for a match.
Trent: “I've been told that I need to win my match tonight to qualify for the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet. Well, that's no problem. I can beat anyone that they put in my way. So whoever it is, bring it on.”
Match 4: Ryan Powell vs. Trent Shaffer vs. Ricky DeColt
This is a very good high flying contest put on. There are tons of near falls, but no one can pick up the victory, as the match ends in a count out draw.
George DeColt comes on the big screen to announce that both Ryan Powell and Trent Shaffer have been entered in the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet and Ricky has earned the right to not defend his title on Friday.
Eddie Chandler is in the back.
Chandler: “Once again, the powers that be try to do anything and everything in their power to pit the Elite against each other. Tonight, I'll be facing my friend Shooter Deeley and the over the hill Steve Flash. Didn't I beat him last week? Well, it looks like I'm going to beat him again and get my spot in the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet. That's simply fabulous.”
Match 5: Eddie Chandler vs. Shooter Deeley vs. Steve Flash
This is a great match between the three technically minded wrestlers. Like the high flying contest, there are many near falls, but the end comes when Adrian Garcia distracts Steve Flash and Eddie forces Shooter to tap to a Fabulous Stretch.
George announces that Eddie Chandler will be entered into the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet.
We cut back to Steve DeColt.
Steve: “Tonight I have to prove myself worthy of an entry into the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet. Isn't it just grand that I face off against two men who have been around even longer than me, Eric Tyler and Ed Monton. They're both veterans, both great wrestlers. But I'm better. And I'll prove it to them tonight.”
Main Event: Eric Tyler vs. Ed Monton vs. Steve DeColt
The brawlers close the show tonight. These guys take it all around the ring and even so far as into the crowd. Steve shows his elders that he is more talented and likely better suited to be in the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet, but tonight, Eric Tyler is able to sneak away with the victory, as he forces Ed Monton to tap out after knocking Steve out of the picture with a chair shot.
George closes the show by announcing Eric Tyler's spot in the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet and by reminding everyone to check out CGC.com for the full lineup tomorrow night.

Match 1: The Specialists © vs. Youth Energy (CGC Tag Team Championship)
Youth Energy have the feeling that it's make or break time and they bring full intensity to the Tag Champs. The downside to that is full intensity just isn't enough on this given night. The Specialists are on the top of their game and it's going to take a well-oiled machine to get the belts off them.
As Ryan Powell walks to the ring for his match, he has a microphone.
Ryan: “This is just about what I expected. I drew #1 for the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet. Someone in the back has it out for me and I'm getting sick and tired of it. I should be the World Champion right now, not Ricky Nepotist. Where are my shots? Huh? Now I have to win eight matches in a row to claim what's mine. Great...”
Ryan steps into the ring and hands off the microphone.

Match 2: Ryan Powell vs. Whippy the Clown
These two move quickly in the ring in an attempt to get the other to trip up. Ryan Powell is the one who succeeds in that goal, leading to a Star Treatment victory.
Ryan Powell looks at the entrance ramp for his next opponent... Alex DeColt, complete with microphone.
Alex: “Take a second Ryan, catch your breath. I see you come out here and you complain about your lack of opportunities. You and everyone else around here get plenty of opportunities, you just haven't capitalized on them. So how about you stop whining and turn your luck around on your own merits. Start by beating me.”
Alex enters the ring and Ryan immediately attacks.

Match 3: Ryan Powell vs. Alex DeColt
Ryan continued his attack with some success until he took his eyes off the prize to taunt the crowd. This allowed Alex to get right back into it and hit the dreaded DeColt Driver for the win.
Trent Shaffer appears as the next opponent, like the previous entrants, he has a microphone as he walks down the aisle.
Trent: “Well, well. Alex DeColt. You are just a stepping stone on my way to being a double champion. I like the way it sounds. Listen for a second... Coming down the aisle, he is the Canadian Champion AND the World Champion, “Every Woman's Fantasy” Trent Shaffer! It's got that ring to it, eh? Ryan may not have been able to beat you, but I will.”
Trent enters the ring and holds his Canadian Title up high for the fans to boo.

Match 4: Trent Shaffer vs. Alex DeColt
These two don't match up like previously imagined, but not all is lost, as they are able to have a passable match with their respective talents. Trent decides to do a lot of stalling as Alex gets the crowd behind him. He's finally able to get his hands on the ****y Canadian Champion and after a few moments is able to hit the DeColt Driver for the win.
Alex's next opponent, Eddie Chandler comes out from the back.
Chandler: “Well, isn't this simply fabulous? Alex, it seems like you may be a little tired in there. Are your muscles starting to cool down and cramp up? We wouldn't want that, now would we? I'll be in there in just a moment, I just need to finish my stretching. You see, you beat those two a little quicker than I thought.”
Eddie takes a seat in the aisle to stretch his hamstrings. Alex is in the ring getting angry. Eddie gets up and starts doing side bends, which brings the DeColt out of the ring.
Chandler: “Whoa, whoa, whoa there big fella. I'm done. Referee, get him back in the ring.”
Eddie finishes loosening up and gets into the ring.
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/EddieChandler.jpg vs. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/AlexDeColt.jpg
Match 5: Eddie Chandler vs. Alex DeColt
Alex goes on the attack right away, wanting to quickly put Eddie away, but the Fabulous One has perfected the style Trent Shaffer tried to use in the previous match. The fans get on the back of Eddie Chandler so much, no one notices that these two don't click, just like the previous match. The stalling of Eddie Chandler finally tips Alex's patience, forcing him to give chase, but this is a mistake, ad Adrian Garcia is able to get involved, leading to the Fabulous Stretch in the middle of the ring and no choice for Alex but to submit.
Eddie looks proud of himself in the middle of the ring, but his jubilation does not last for long as his next opponent steps out from the back, Jack DeColt.
Jack: “Eddie, you seemed pretty happy when you found out you'd be wrestling a winded DeColt... how do you feel now that you'll be wrestling a fresh one?”
Chandler goes into all out chicken mode, trying to be Jack off, but he's having none of it.
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/EddieChandler.jpg vs. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y7/godnightshade/CGC/JackDeColt.jpg
Match 6: Eddie Chandler vs. Jack DeColt
These two go at it like a couple of pitbulls. They refuse to stay down long after getting hit by each others' moves. It doesn't even seem to flow like a normal match, but it is exciting. And when Jack locks on the End of Days to get Eddie to give up, the crowd goes nuts.
Jack gets to his feet and looks to the entrance. He is met by the menacing stare of Dan DaLay. Dan marches to the ring and gets in, staring down at his opponent.

Match 7: Dan DaLay vs. Jack DeColt
This is an extension of the previous match, but Dan is doing most of the punishment dealing. Jack is never completely out of it though, as he is able to fight through the pain and make his comeback, leveling Dan with DeColt Cutter for the win.
Jack gets to his feet and rolls his shoulders and neck in preparation for his next opponent. Eric Tyler.
Tyler: “It looks like the Bastion of Tradition is here for one thing, to realize his destiny. And that destiny is to once again hold the CGC World Title. Jack DeColt, I'll beat you here in a minute and I'll beat your little, bratty brother at the DeColt WrestleFestival. Believe it.”
Eric enters the ring, just as ready as Jack.

Match 8: Eric Tyler vs. Jack DeColt
Another great match is put on display tonight. Jack is worn out from the beating taken from Dan DaLay and Eric goes right to work on him. Jack fights back whenever he can, but it isn't enough, as Eric is able to slap on the Tradition Lift for the win.
Eric begins to celebrate in the ring.
Steve: “It's not over yet, old man.”
Steve DeColt steps out from the back and starts walking to the ring.
Steve: “You may have gotten the best of Jack, but in the end, the DeColt's always win... always prosper. I'm going to get the right to face my little brother at the DeColt WrestleFestival. Because you'll NEVER beat me.”

Main Event: Eric Tyler vs. Steve DeColt
The night comes to an end in an amazing way. Eric and Steve both throw out some bombs to start off. Steve takes control and puts a licking on the veteran, but Eric has more tricks in his bag than Steve knows exists. Eric takes over and works away on the leg of Steve. The eldest DeColt is able to fight back up to his feet and start rocking Eric, but a quick distraction of the referee and a low blow stops Steve long enough for the Tradition Lift to be locked in.

CGC Title Bout Wrestling.
Quebec City Arena (Quebec, Canada)
Dark Match: Old School def. Gilbert Brothers in 3. (D-)
Dark Match: The Soldiers of Fortune def. Too Sweet in 3. (E)
Dark Match: Dan DaLay, Bobby Thomas, and Ryan Powell def. The Canadian Blondes and Grimm Quibble in 5. (D-)
The show starts with Eric Tyler in the ring, addressing the crowd.
Tyler: “I believe the exact words of Steve DeColt were “you'll never beat me.” Well Steve, it looks like never came sooner than you could have ever imagined. And now, I will go on to the DeColt WrestleFestival and I'll beat your little brother Ricky to a pulp. I'll make him scream out in pain as he submits to me.”
Boos from the crowd.
Tyler: “And then the referee will call for the bell and raise my hand up high before handing me the only thing that really matters anymore... The World Heavyweight Championship. You see, the kid has heart. I'm not going to deny that, but what you're forgetting is that I've been wrestling for longer than that kid's been alive. I know more than he will ever know. I've wrestled men of caliber higher than any of you pathetic French-Canadians have ever seen.”
Cheap heat victory for Eric.
Tyler: “Hell, I've forgotten more about wrestling in the last year than Ricky has picked up since his old man opened this place up eighteen years ago. There's no possible way in hell that I can lose. I'm smarter, I'm stronger, I'm more experienced, and I'm flat out better than Ricky DeColt. He's done some impressive things, I'll give him that... but he's going to have to do a lot better to hold a candle to me. So Ricky, enjoy that belt while you still have it, because in a little over a month, it'll be mine.”
Match 1: The New Youth vs. Cal & Christian
Not a great follow up to Eric's promo, but for these four, I'll take it. They all have some skill, but they haven't caught on with the fans yet. The New Youth pick up their first win as a team after Davis pins Cal with a fisherman suplex.
Trent Shaffer comes out to the ring a little quicker than usual and with a purpose that seems greater than it has been in the past several weeks. He grabs a microphone from the ring announcer and climbs into the ring.
Trent: “I know what you're all thinking, how could your hero have lost to such an unkempt, uncouth, sorry excuse for a professional wrestler? I wasn't sure how it happened myself, but when I looked at the footage, I realized that Alex DeColt cheated! He cheated me out of my rightful victory and my rightful shot at the World Heavyweight Championship! I was going to be a double champion! I was going to be the one that led this company into a brave, new world. And for that, Alex DeColt, I demand retribution! Tonight! So come out from the back and fight me right here, right now!”
A short moment passes and Alex does oblige Trent's request, but slightly hesitantly so.
Alex: “Alright Trent, you've got something up your sleeve, and I know it. Why do you want to face me so badly? You know I didn't cheat in our match the other night...”
Trent: “You did so! And I have the proof! Roll the footage!”
The big screen shows a clip from the Luck of the Draw Gauntlet match featuring the two men in question. Trent Shaffer is out of the ring and as he climbs onto the apron, the footage changes to a close up of Trent's face, as he is poked in the eyes. The footage then cuts back to the PPV and Alex hitting the DeColt Driver for the win.
Trent: “See! You stabbed me in both my eyes, leaving me helpless!”
Alex: “Are you serious? Is this some kind of joke?”
Trent: “This is no joke, and now that I have this proof, I'm taking it to the board of directors and demanding a shot at the title.”
Alex: “Who did you get to poke you in the eyes? And who would film it for you?”
Trent: “The board of directors will have no choice but to give me a shot at Ricky!”
Alex: “Trent, you're a moron, do you know who the board of directors consist of?”
Trent is caught off guard, he obviously wasn't expecting that.
Trent: “Ummm... stock holders?”
Alex: “Now I know this is a joke. This isn't a publicly held company. The board of directors include my dad, my uncles, and Steve. They will see that this is some hack job put together in your spare time. Now I'm tired of your games, get ready to fight!”
Alex starts walking to the ring and Trent is not happy that his ploy was for naught.
Match 2: Trent Shaffer vs. Alex DeColt
Now, I'm not sure why I booked this match. I know there is no chemistry, but it had to have been done for a reason. They brawl and stall, but not to the same degree of enjoyability as from the PPV. The end comes when Trent decides that he's had enough of Alex and leaves, taking the count out loss.
We cut to the back, where the camera is following the New Youth.
Davis: “Did you see me hit that fisherman? He didn't even know what hit him!”
James: “This place is never going to know what hit it. Now that we're here, those Tag Titles are as good as ours.”
Davis: “Yeah, I mean, Youth Energy obviously can't get the job done. They are given shot after shot, but they can never pick up a win when it counts.”
They turn the corner and bump into Lee Rivera and Shane Nelson, their normal happy looks gone, replaced with scowls.
Lee: “We're losers, eh?”
James doesn't back down, instead he steps right into Lee's personal bubble.
James: “Yeah, you heard me right.”
Shane: “Well, if we're such losers, how about you face off with us next week?”
Davis: “You want us to kick your asses? Sure. You got it.”
Match 3: Nate Johnson vs. Whippy the Clown
Whippy and Nate battle in this one. Whippy is able to pop out an advantage, but instead of a victory, he eats some interference from Bobby Thomas and goes down as Nate uses the ropes for leverage.
The Specialists attack Whippy after the bell rings. They are in the process of beating him down when Ed Monton runs out to make the save. The Specialists try to fight him off, but they quickly realize that Ed is a crazy old man and feels no pain.
Match 4: Nathan Black vs. Thomas Morgan
Not much to see here, a lot of bland technical chain wrestling that ends abruptly when Thomas locks on an STF to win.
We cut to the back, where Jack and Steve DeColt are finishing their preparations for their match.
Jack: “It's bad enough that Eric Tyler is going to the DeColt WrestleFestival to fight our little brother Ricky. What makes it even worse is that he beat both me and my brother to earn that shot.”
Steve: “We weren't able to protect Ricky and keep him out of harms way. That's all I've ever asked of myself. And now, Eric Tyler is going to get a shot at something that should never leave the waist of a DeColt.”
Jack: “It's going to be a test for Ricky, but we can help him out tonight. You see, we have a tag match tonight. One that we had to do a bit of convincing for, but in the end, the board saw the light and agreed.”
Steve: “Tonight, we're going to get some revenge not only for us, but for our brothers too. Eddie Chandler and Eric Tyler are our opponents and with any luck, they won't be walking out of here.”
The brothers stand up and leave the locker room.
Match 5: Eddie Chandler and Eric Tyler vs. Jack & Steve DeColt
These four men put on a great tag match for the fans in attendance. Eddie and Eric are able to cut Jack off from his corner, but once Steve gets the hot tag, it's all over. He cleans house and hits Eddie with the DeColt Stampede to win.
We cut to the back, where Adrian Garcia is with Shooter.
Garcia: “We were informed that Ricky DeColt feels that the Shooter is a man of great ability. And with that great ability, he deserves to get a shot at the World Title. I'm not one to question World Title shots. I only make sure my clients win them. Tonight, a new World Champion will be crowned and Eric Tyler will have to prepare to face a different opponent at the DeColt WrestleFestival.”
Main Event: Shooter Deeley vs. Ricky DeColt © (CGC World Championship)
These guys put on another great match, this time before a televised audience. They go back and forth and it looks like it could go either way for awhile, but Ricky finally pulls out an advantage after Garcia botches some interference and is able to hit the DeColt 45 for the win.

CGC Title Bout Wrestling
Varsity Arena (Ontario, Canada)
Dark Match: Thomas Morgan, Cal Sanders, and Christian Price def. The Bronzed God and the Gilbert Brothers in 5. (E+)
Dark Match: Nathan Black def. Oscar Golden in 2. (E)
Dark Match: Flash Savage def. TH Evans, Philippe LaGrenier, and Grimm Quibble in 5. (E)
The show starts out with Youth Energy walking through the backstage area toward the ring with Jenny Playmate.
Jenny: “And you guys won't be able to lose if you follow the plan. Hernandez and Newton are just trying to ride your coattails to the top of CGC. You two have been Tag Team Champions and you're going to do it again.”
Lee: “But we haven't been able to beat the Specialists.”
Jenny: “You'll get them back, I promise.”
As they're walking, a door opens behind them in the hallway and out walk the New Youth.
James: “Hey losers!”
Lee and Shane turn around, Shane looks displeased with himself.
Jenny: “What's wrong?”
Shane: “They got me.”
Lee: “What do you want?”
Davis: “Is your little girlfriend trying to make you feel better about the fact that you're going to lose tonight?”
Lee: “We're not going to lose tonight.”
James: “I beg to differ.”
Lee takes a step forward, but Jenny stops him.
Jenny: “Prove it in the ring.”
James: “Oh, we will.”
Youth Energy turn around and walk away, toward the ring.
Match 1: The New Youth vs. Youth Energy
Not exactly what I was hoping for out of the two teams, but not bad. There is a lot of energy given off by the four men to get the crowd pumped up about being here. Youth Energy just looks good out there and they're able to pick up the win when Shane hits James with a Clash of Styles.
We cut to the back to see Whippy the Clown and Ed Monton. Whippy's painted smile is accentuated more than normal tonight and Ed is looking extra grizzled.
Whippy: “You know Ed, I've been meaning to thank you for saving my butt against those two clowns last week.”
Ed: “It's not a problem, but, uhh... I thought you were a clown.”
Whippy: “Who? Meeeee???”
Whippy busts out into laughter.
Whippy: “Well, I guess you're right! I am a clown after all! But that doesn't change the fact that tonight, in the ring, I'm going to be all business. Are you going to have my back?”
Whippy: “Good! Let's go out there and have a shocking good time!”
Match 2: The Specialists © vs. Ed Monton and Whippy the Clown (CGC Tag Team Championship)
Whippy and Ed look alright as a team out there and they take it to the Tag Champs early. They just don't account for the X-Factor that is Adrian Garcia, when he interferes and gives the Specialists the advantage they need to hit a Special Delivery and pick up the win.
To the back again, we see Eddie Chandler and Dan DaLay.
Eddie: “Tonight, we face off against a man who was in CGC more than ten years ago and his tag team partner, a man who hasn't been relevant in more than five years. Over the hill doesn't describe the two of you, knocking on death's door does. Don't get me wrong. The two of you have had incredible careers spanning the past four decades, but you're going up against the best and the biggest CGC has to offer. The Fabulous One and the Elite Monster of professional wrestling are here. So Steve Flash, Ace Braun, do you have what it takes? I don't think so.”
Dan merely growls before the two take off out of the shot.
We cut over to another part of the backstage, where Thomas Morgan is attacked by the Bronzed God. TBG is yelling something about getting better partners next week and how he's going to put an end to Thomas Morgan, once and for all.
Match 3: Dan DaLay and Eddie Chandler vs. Old School
We have a standard tag formula match, that sees Steve Flash taking the brunt of the offense. The hot tag comes and Ace makes it seem like the veterans have a shot at victory, but Adrian Garcia runs out to ringside to distract them and Eddie Chandler takes over to pick up the win.
To the back again. This time, the locker room is filled with Jack, Steve, and Ricky DeColt. They're putting on the finishing touches to their preparation for their upcoming six man tag match.
Jack: “Shooter... Ryan Powell... Trent Shaffer... You guys have been acting like thorns in the sides of the DeColt's for the past few months. You see, we're tired of you and tonight, we're going to show you why we're better than you.”
Steve: “That's right, Jack. Tonight, those three jokers are going to find out why we're the best that there is in CGC. We're going to show why we've earned all our reigns with the titles in this company. And we're going to put the three of you out to pasture.”
Ricky: “I'm the World Heavyweight Champion! I've fought the three of our opponents on numerous occasions. Sometimes I've come out on top, sometimes I haven't... but tonight, with my brothers at my side, there is no doubt that we're coming out on top.”
Match 4: Ryan Powell, Trent Shaffer, and Shooter Deeley vs. Jack, Ricky, and Steve DeColt
Despite what the DeColt brothers said, this isn't a one sided match. All six men do their fair share of wrestling and everyone looks good. That is, until the DeColts use their superior teamwork to take over and put an end to the uprising across the ring. Steve picks up the win with the DeColt Stampede on Shooter.
We cut to the back, one last time, to Eric Tyler.
Tyler: “On my path to the DeColt WrestleFestival, I have to take down another one of the DeColt boys. You see, I've beaten Jack, I've beaten Steve... Hell, I've beaten George himself. Alex DeColt, you're going to be the next one on my list. And then it will just leave one last DeColt boy. And Ricky, at the DeColt WrestleFestival, I'm going to beat you too. And I'm going to take the World Title for my own, one... last... time.”
Main Event: Eric Tyler vs. Alex DeColt
In what should have been a very good match, we settle for okay. There isn't much chemistry between the two men in the ring and instead of a heated affair, we get more of a lukewarm one. Alex is able to put Eric on the ropes through most of the match, but it's not enough, as one missed splash in the corner allows Eric to take over and work to a Tradition Lift and the win.

CGC Title Bout Wrestling
Quebec City Arena (Quebec, Canada)
Dark Match: Cal Sanders def. Grimm Quibble in 3. (E+)
Dark Match: Soldiers of Fortune def. Too Sweet in 3. (E+)
Dark Match: Ricky DeColt def. Ace Braun, James Hernandez and Ed Monton in 7. (D+)
The show starts in the office of George DeColt.
George: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Title Bout Wrestling. Thank you for coming to the show and tuning in on live TV. At Luck of the Draw, Eric Tyler did indeed outlast the competition and earn a shot at my son Ricky at the DeColt WrestleFestival. However, he also upset my other sons in the process. They've asked me to set up a six man tag match against Eric Tyler and two partners of his choice. I felt compelled to agree and sign the match. Therefore, in the main event tonight, Alex, Jack, and Steve will face off against Eric and two other opponents. Once again, thank you for tuning in. Enjoy.”
Eric Tyler is in the back, just having seen and heard the announcement on the monitor. He shakes his head and sighs when up walks Trent Shaffer.
Trent: “How's it going, soon to be champ?”
Tyler: “Not amazingly well. Trent, you've held onto that Canadian Championship for the past several months and you've proven yourself to be a competent wrestler in the ring.”
Trent: “Well, I don't like to brag...”
Tyler: “And I'm sure you're going to want some revenge on the DeColts for your match last week.”
Trent: “Well... they are a bunch of cheats.”
Tyler: “That's why I want to offer you a spot on my team.”
Trent: “Ooohhh... I'm sorry Eric, but I won't be able to tonight, you see, I have to defend my title. In fact, I'm up next.”
Tyler: “Maybe another time then...”
Trent takes off and Eric strokes his chin before walking in the opposite direction.
Match 1: Trent Shaffer © vs. Steve Flash (CGC Canadian Championship)
The opener is a fast paced affair. Steve takes control and almost wins the belt on many occasions. The only downside is that he takes his eyes off the prize for just a moment. Trent takes his opportunity to pull out a pair of brass knucks from his pocket and clock the veteran to win.
We cut back to Eric Tyler, who sees Ryan Powell in the background. After a moment, the two are face to face.
Tyler: “Ryan, I would like you to be my partner tonight against the DeColts.”
Ryan: “Why would I want to do that?”
Tyler: “Because together, we can beat them.”
Ryan: “I don't know about that. Every time I get into the ring with them, I lose. I haven't beaten a DeColt in almost a year, since I last beat Ricky.”
Tyler: “Well, you'll get another chance.”
Ryan: “I don't want another chance. I don't want to fight the DeColts anymore. I have a match against Shane Nelson.”
Ryan turns to walk away, but Eric grabs him by the arm.
Tyler: “Don't walk away from me.”
Ryan: “I'm sorry, you'll have to find someone else.”
Ryan pulls his arm hard and walks away.
Match 2: Ryan Powell vs. Shane Nelson
These two put on a decent seesaw battle. As soon as Shane takes control, however, James Hernandez and Davis Newton make their presence known. Shane, along with the ref, is distracted by Davis Newton, allowing James Hernandez to run in and hit an Apparition 14, followed by Ryan hitting the Star Treatment for the win.
Eric Tyler is in the back once again. This time, he sees the Specialists and Adrian Garcia. He walks up to the Tag Team Champions and extends his hand. Nate and Bobby look at him expressionless, while Adrian Garcia accepts the handshake.
Garcia: “Eric, what may I do for you?”
Tyler: “I've been looking for these two all night. I would like their services as my tag partners tonight in the main event.”
Garcia: “That's a very interesting request, but I regret that I have to decline.”
Eric's face suddenly turns red.
Tyler: “And why is that?”
Garcia: “Well, you see, these two have something else planned for tonight. I wouldn't want them to be placed in harms way.”
Tyler: “Who the hell am I going to find to team up with me?”
Garcia: “Don't worry about that. I have an idea for you, come with me.”
Eric calms down and follows Adrian away. The Specialists, however, stay where they are. Bobby suddenly points off camera and the two sprint out of the shot. When the camera picks them back up, they have tackled Ed Monton and are mercilessly attacking him.
Match 3: The Bronzed God and Shooter Deeley vs. Thomas Morgan and Whippy the Clown
This didn't turn out well at all. My best guess is that these guys just don't complement each other. TBG and Thomas don't get a lot of time in the ring together, but that just goes to build up the anxiety toward each other. Shooter Deeley picks up the win in the end as he gets Thomas to tap out to the Front Choke Lock.
To the back, we see the DeColts, sans Ricky. They've finished their preparations and are on their way to the ring.
Alex: “Eric Tyler, I hope, for your sake, that you've found two partners that are capable. Because if you haven't, my brothers and I are going to destroy you.”
Steve: “If you mess with one DeColt, you mess with all of us. Eric Tyler, you've messed with all of us and your payback is going to be multiplied tenfold.”
Jack: “You know, for once, I don't have anything to add. Good luck Eric, you're going to need it.”
Eric Tyler comes to the ring by himself. Once he steps in, he grabs a microphone and walks to the center of the ring.
Tyler: “Well, it's that time. I'm going to fight the three older DeColt boys. It's a shame that Ricky can't fight his own battles. That he needs to run to his big brothers for help whenever he gets himself into trouble. Well, that's fine. Because, I found myself a couple of tag team partners and they don't like the DeColts much themselves. So, without further ado, my tag partners... Eddie Chandler and Dan DaLay, the Elite!”
Dan and Eddie come walking out from the back to a chorus of boos from the fans. They relish in the attention as they climb into the ring. Eddie shaking hands and then hugging with Eric.
Eddie: “It's so nice of you to come to us. You see, you can't find anyone who hates the DeColts more than Dan and myself. We've fought these morons for more years than I care to count. When you came back to CGC, Dan and I looked at each other and smiled. Well, I smiled, he kind of grunted. The important thing is that we knew that we'd have another real wrestler with the ability and the gumption to take the fight to the DeColts. So Eric, we thank you for coming to us, because now we all know that we're on the same page.”
Eddie and Eric shake hands once again.
Main Event: Eric Tyler, Eddie Chandler, and Dan DaLay vs. Alex, Jack, and Steve DeColt
Now this is more like what I expect from the wrestlers on this roster. These six men stick to the rules for awhile, but after the eight minute mark, all hell breaks loose. The brawl encompasses the entire ringside area and if it isn't for the TV time limit, it could keep going. But as it is, the show ends in a draw.

CGC Title Bout Wrestling
Varsity Arena (Ontario, Canada)
Dark Match: The Soldiers of Fortune def. Canadian Blondes in 2. (E)
Dark Match: Dan & Eddie def. Youth Energy, Trent and Shooter, and Whippy and Ed in 10. (C)
Match 1: The New Youth vs. Too Sweet
This is a match to showcase the abilities of the New Youth. Hopefully they'll be able to carry some matches on their own by the end of the year, but until then, they'll look good in matches like this, against TH and TJ. They are able to pick up the win without much problem.
Winners: The New Youth
The Bronzed God steps out into the entrance.
TBG: “It is time that I begin to protect myself from the man who has nothing but spite for me. The man who has been trying to attack me since he came to CGC. Tomas Morgan, because of you I am forced to have a bodyguard. You should be fearful to meet... Colossus!”
A mountain of a man appears from the back. A few fans may recognize him from the ending days of DaVE, as Hell's Bouncer or from USPW as Colossus. Either way, it's clear that The Bronzed God means business.
TBG: “He will be joining Mr. Quibble and myself tonight in the match against you and your partners. I wish you good luck. You will need it.”
Match 2: The Bronzed God, Colossus, and Grimm Quibble vs. Cal Sanders, Christian Price, and Thomas Morgan
Colossus was a quick fill in from USPW when a signing didn't pan out in time. This match did nothing to impress me or the fans in the arena, but all six men aren't very well known, so it's passable. Nothing of real note happened through the match, but the end was nasty with the way Colossus put Thomas Morgan out with his feared Damnation Drop.
Winners: The Bronzed God, Colossus, and Grimm Quibble
We cut backstage, where Ryan Powell is walking toward the ring. He doesn't get far though, as he is blindsided by Eric Tyler. The Bastion of Tradition proceeds to put a whooping on Ryan, until he feels he's done enough damage.
Tyler: “Retribution, it's something that is etched in the tradition of the wrestling business. Ryan Powell was too much of a coward to team with me last week. And this week, he faces my retribution. He'll consider himself lucky when he comes to that I didn't finish him off. Ricky, at the DeColt WrestleFestival, I won't stop when I feel the consciousness fade from you. I won't stop until I feel the blast breath escape your lungs. The World Title is rightfully mine. You'll see that soon enough.”
Eric starts to walk away, but stops and looks at the camera.
Tyler: “Oh, consider this a present for you. I don't want you worn down for our big match.”
Eric walks off as the camera looks down at the hurt Ryan Powell.
Match 3: Different Strokes vs. Old School
I really thought Ace and Steve would be able to pull out a better match than this from Nathan and Philippe. I was wrong in that thought. This just wasn't a fun match to watch, but it was great to see it end with a Flash Bang.
Winners: Old School
To the back we go again, this time, Whippy the Clown is sitting near Ed Monton. Ed is in street clothes, complete with trucker hat. Whippy is dressed in full clown garb.
Whippy: “Ed, I'm sorry I wasn't there to help you last week. I didn't know they had attacked you until after my match.”
Ed: “That's fine, you didn't know.”
Whippy: “But I should have been there, like you were there for me!”
Ed: “Don't worry about it.”
Whippy: “But I am worried about it! You saved me, and I failed you. There's nothing funny about that.”
Ed: “Let's fight them at the WrestleFestival.”
Whippy: “Really? Do you mean it Ed?”
Whippy: “Alright! I'll try to get it set up!”
Whippy runs off.
Match 4: Ryan Powell vs. Ricky DeColt © (CGC World Championship)
Ryan doesn't look well after the attack perpetrated on him by Eric Tyler. He takes his sweet time getting into the ring and then powders to the ring a lot to catch his breath. Ricky, being fresh, has no problem tonight and is able to put Ryan away with the DeColt 45.
Winner: Ricky DeColt
Eric Tyler comes out to the entranceway, he claps toward Ricky, who is still in the ring.
Tyler: “Congratulations on your victory Ricky. Enjoy it while you still can. You see, come the WrestleFestival, you won't be standing in the ring with your arm raised. You'll be carted out on a stretcher after you take the beating of your life. See you then... champ.”
Eric turns around and walks away, leaving Ricky in the ring shaking his head.
Main Event: The Specialists vs. Jack & Steve DeColt
This is a match to see if the Specialists can hang with the big boys. I'd like to say they can, but we were deprived of a clean ending to the match. Dan DaLay and Eddie Chandler decided that they would run in and attack the DeColt boys, leading to a four on two Elite beatdown.
Winners: Jack & Steve DeColt
The beatdown continues after the match, as all four men take turns picking apart the elder DeColt boys. The attack doesn't go too far though, as Alex and Ricky bolt down to the ring to make the save. They are able to dump the Specialists from the ring and concentrate on Dan and Eddie, giving Jack and Steve the needed recovery time to get back into the fight. The show closes as the DeColts finally clear the ring and stand tall.

12-12-2008, 03:55 PM
The show had gone alright. I was hoping for a better reaction to both the main event and the attack angle at the end, but I'll take what I got. It'll just serve as more build up for the WrestleFestival. The card is starting to shape up, Ed and Whippy should be announced as the contenders for the Tag Title shortly. There still is the matter of finding an opponent for Trent Shaffer and his Canadian Title... no one jumps out though.
Jack: “Hey Al, there's something you need to take care of.”
Jack popped in without my seeing him. Things have been quiet around here lately, I hope this isn't an incident of some sort...
Alex: “What's happening, Jack?”
Jack: “Well, first off, I want you to take it easy on her. I think it's just a little pay back for the prank last month.”
Oh great, more problems between the girls. Jack led me to the women's locker room. Farrah is standing in the middle of the room in just a bra. A white shirt is on the floor with the word “tramp” written on it in lipstick. Jenny Playmate is standing between Farrah and Marie, hoping she can keep the two apart. Jack stands by Marie in further attempt to keep Farrah back.
Alex: “What the hell? I thought we patched things up last month?”
Farrah: “You're going to need to patch her up when I'm done with her.”
Alex: “Farrah, not now. I'll handle this.”
I turn to Marie.
Alex: “What's the idea here?”
Marie: “Just a little pay back.”
Alex: “You were in tears last month over her hiding your clothes. You've come back with some actually malicious behavior. That's not getting things even, that's one upping. I don't want this behavior in my locker room.”
Marie: “I'll try not to let it happen again.”
Alex: “See that you don't, because if I have to talk to you two again, you're not going to like the results.”
I leave the room, let them handle it themselves...
