We see snapshot imagery of the New York Giants NFL team winning and lifting the Vince Lombardi trophy. Those images soon fade to a clip of Hardcore Champion Mark Henry lifting abnormal amounts of weights in a gym. We cut to a voiceover from KWF World Champion John Cena where he says that he is the chosen one. He says that he is the prototype for a Professional Wrestler and he tells us that he will not lose the KWF Championship. We see Tag Title challengers Sheamus and Vladimir Kozlov and they’re in training for their match tonight. They’re jogging in what seems to be an urban area of a small town. Sheamus says “Ya ready for fight wit’ dem Dudleys fella?” Kozlov: “Da.” Sheamus: “It won’t be easy ya know, dey’ve held dem Belts for quite a while and it takes some work to put Roode and Storm on the injured list.” Kozlov in his strong Russian accent: “Beer Money had many opportunities to get them Belts. We will learn from their mistakes and we will take der Tag Tytles from de Dudley Boys.” Sheamus: “Ai fella, dat we will, dat we will.” The video fades into blueprint imagery of what a successful Intercontinental Champion should be. All blueprints reveal diagrams showing current Intercontinental Champion Matt Morgan. We see a shot of a wrestling ring set up for Ultimate X, a clip of CM Punk warming up, an image of Sting helping Steve Austin to his feet and a shot of Ken Anderson’s mic lowering from the ceiling into an empty arena. A voiceover says ‘A night where team work only matters for that of Tag Team supremacy. This event shall reveal the gladiators who will represent the Keystone Wrestling Federation as Champions heading into to the Grandest Stage of Them All; WrestleMania. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you, KWF SUPERBRAWL!’
The pyro’s explode as we pan and zoom Live into the Bradley Center. The crowd are on their feet and we immediately hear the ♫music of The Dudley Boys♫ «< click to play). Jim Ross and William Regal bring us in on commentary and the audience boo roundly as Bubba and Devon raise the KWF Tag Team Championships. William Regal says that SuperBrawl is like the Super Bowl in that everyone wants success here. “The Dudley Boys know that if they don’t win here tonight then their run as Champions would have succumbed to nothing. Everyone wants to be the top dogs going into Mania and I believe that Bubba and Devon will prove way too much for Sheamus and Kozlov tonight.” “Well William the opening video package certainly highlighted how important it is to win at SuperBrawl, but I must emphasize the hunger of Sheamus and Kozlov. They were lackies in the World Elite and since the Hogan/Flair takeover they’ve been overlooked. Bret Hart returned as a mediator for the KWF Board and now the Irishman and Russian have a chance. I’m so glad that SuperBrawl is starting this way, I’m so excited!” With that we hear the ♫music of Sheamus and Kozlov♫ «< click to play) and the crowd cheer them on as the KWF Tag Title match gets underway.
The Dudleys vs. Sheamus & Vladimir Kozlov – KWF World Tag Team Titles
The bell rings and it’s Kozlov who locks up with Devon Dudley. Devon puts on a side headlock, but Kozlov sends him toward the ropes and headbutts him down upon his return. The crowd cheer as Devon backs off into his corner. Sheamus smiles and nods as Bubba tags in and he and Kozlov go at it. William Regal says that he doesn’t believe that Sheamus and Kozlov have what it takes to be the top tag team in the KWF. JR responds: “What are you talking about? While in the World Elite Sheamus and Kozlov did have some Tag Title success, they were the top team on TNA RAW.” Regal: “But that’s exactly my point JR. In the World Elite they worked under Wade Barrett. They had direction and purpose and they had clear instructions on what to do and when to do it. Since then the Keystone Wrestling Federation has become this once a week supershow and it’s great for the fans, but not so great for the wrestler’s. Think about it, Sheamus and Kozlov aren’t focused. The Dudley’s have been around the block and they’ll win this match and the Russian and the Irishman will bow their heads and have to go to the back of the line. There are many tag teams looking for an opportunity at that Gold and I’m sorry, but I don’t see anybody beating Bubba and Devon.” JR agrees that The Dudleys are arguably one of the greatest tag teams of all time and he says that it may take some mistakes on their part for a team to beat them. Regal says that The Dudleys simply don’t make mistakes and while the likes of Sheamus and Kozlov play to the fans, the Dudley Boys use that time for recovery, regrouping and getting the job done. “They’re remarkable the Dudley Boys.”
The contest goes back and forth in the early going and we watch as both teams tag in and out frequently to keep themselves fresh. JR says that this is vital for tag team success, but Regal responds that Sheamus and Kozlov aren’t doing it out of tactics, they’re doing it to mirror Bubba and Devon. JR says “that’s your opinion, not a fact.” But then we see Sheamus and Kozlov tag in and out without going near The Dudleys, as if they were almost mocking the Tag Champs. The crowd are amused by this and Regal says “See, told you.” Bubba Ray become angry at Sheamus and Kozlov’s tags and he proceeds to take the legal Sheamus and perhaps cut the ring in half, but Kozlov blind tags himself in and he slingshots himself over the top rope to take Bubba down with a shoulder barge. He covers for One, Two, but it’s a kick out by Bubba and the match continues. The comms continue to discuss the dynamics of the match. JR says that the mocking of The Dudleys’ tags was a mind game that suckered Bubba and Devon into becoming angry and losing focus. William Regal says that becoming Champion and staying Champion are two different things entirely and The Dudleys have retained the Tag Gold against every challenge since last summer. Regal: “D’you remember the Falls Count Anywhere match versus the Latin American eXchange? That was last June at the Great American Bash JR. The Dudleys won the WWE Tag Titles then and only lost and retained them once before KWF Starrcade where the WWE and TNA Tag Championships were unified. Bubba and Devon became the first to raise the KWF World Tag Team Titles and they still haven’t lost the Belts.” JR: “But William, they’ve retained on a number of biased rulings from co KWF Chairmen Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. Hell Harlem Heat were even fired because Hulk and Ric knew that they posed the biggest threat to The Dudleys’ Title reign.” Regal: “Technicalities matter not JR. It’s winning that matters and before WrestleMania the pressure on the Dudleys is at its highest. They’ve dominated for almost a year and this aptly named SuperBrawl pay-per-view has begun with Bubba and Devon showing us exactly why they’re the Champions.” We see the contest sprawl into disorder as Devon and Kozlov fight into the audience and Sheamus bashes Bubba’s head off the ring apron at ringside. Sheamus rolls Bubba back into the ring and the crowd cheer as he sets to put this match to bed. Sheamus signals for The Celtic Cross, but whilst the referee is yelling toward Devon and Kozlov to get back in the ring, Bubba Ray low blows Sheamus and the Irishman’s momentum draws to a screeching halt. Bubba goes middle turnbuckle to drop a backsplash on the fallen Sheamus and he confidently hooks the leg and calls the ref over. He gets One, Two – but Sheamus kicks out! Bubba gets up to stalk the referee and yell at him for not counting faster. Meanwhile we see Kozlov come over the barricade and he climbs the apron to try get back in the ring. Bubba goes toward him and the two exchange punches back and forth. Sheamus gathers himself and gets up. The fans cheer as he measures Bubba for a Brogue kick, but as he runs over Bubba ducks and Sheamus inadvertently boots Kozlov right off the apron and the Russian crashes into the barricade. Sheamus can’t believe it, he holds his head as the crowd gasp. Devon comes rolling into the ring on Sheamus’ blind side. Sheamus turns around and he’s lifted and dropped right into a 3D! Devon taunts his Testify Cross and Bubba hooks both legs for the academic Three-count.
Winners and Still KWF World Tag Team Champions: The Dudleys.
Bubba and Devon retain and the Milwaukee crowd boo like hell. Bubba taunts the fans at ringside, mouthing off to them that nobody can defeat the Dudleys. Devon grabs both Tag Titles and raises them while we see shots of Sheamus laid out in the ring and Kozlov just getting to his knees by the apron. William Regal applauds as he reminds JR of how right he was in predicting the outcome of this match. JR shakes his head and says that underhanded tactics were still involved and The Dudleys have made an art of it. “They’re programmed to screw people over and once again it’s a low blow that leads to their overall victory.” Regal finishes: “Ha, but they won JR, isn’t that all that matters? Besides, Sheamus Brogue Kicked his own partner off the apron. That’s inexperience, that’s lack of focus and I hate to say I told you so, but Jim… I told you so, ha ha.” The Dudleys turn their backs to a booing audience up the ramp, raising their KWF Tag Titles. Their music cuts and we see Vladimir Kozlov discombobulated in the ring. He helps Sheamus to his feet and the crowd applaud their efforts.
Backstage we join KWF interviewer Jeremy Borash. “Yes ladies and gentlemen welcome to SuperBrawl and what an opening match that was. Up next we have an Intercontinental Title match coming up where John Morrison will challenge my guest at this time, reigning Intercontinental Title holder Matt Morgan.” Morgan is intense as he enters the picture. “Reigning Title holder, is that all I am to you JB?” Borash backs off and says that he didn’t mean anything by it. Morgan: “You’re lucky that I know that you are that stupid. I mean, to poke a bear while he’s hungry is one thing, but to tease him while he’s protecting his family is down right asking for slap wouldn’t you say so JB?” Borash squirms and says “Please Matt, I didn’t mean anything by it, I’m sorry.” Morgan yells: “You should be sorry! But I won’t kill you, not tonight. My energy and focus (toward the camera) is on you John Morrison. See John, I see my Intercontinental Championship as my family. This Belt means everything to me and since the KWF superstars all folded into one roster I have picked off every single challenge that has come my way. I was the last ever United States Champion. I was the first ever KWF Intercontinental Champion and that fact remains to this day and John Morrison I will not lose this Title tonight! You beat me a few weeks ago. I’ll give you that. A one-time win, congratulations. It means nothing. Tonight Morrison, what I do to you, it won’t be personal. It’ll be a message. To you, to anybody who comes after me and my family, oh you’re gonna get hurt.” ♫Matt Morgan’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and he turns back toward Borash to shove the microphone in his chest. Morgan walks off and JB breathes heavily before saying “Ladies and gentlemen Mr. Matt Morgan, Intercontinental Champion, will defend his Belt versus John Morrison, next.”
Matt Morgan vs. John Morrison – Intercontinental Title
The match begins with Matt Morgan going directly at John Morrison. The fans fully back JoMo, but it’s all just white noise to Morgan who corners Morrison early and suplex’s him out the corner to cover for One and a half. JR says that John Morrison was a long term combatant, Champion and challenger for the Intercontinental Belt back when the KWF was in two brands and Morrison rivaled Dolph Ziggler for the Belt over on Impact SmackDown. “In fact it was Morrison versus Dolph Ziggler at KWF WrestleMania last year.” William Regal says that the days of split brands are long gone and “that’s one of the best things about the KWF now. One show a week, one roster and all the competition in the world. That’s why The Dudleys are Tag Champs and that’s why Mr. Morgan will retain right here as well.” JR says that he can’t deny Morgan’s dominant reign as Intercontinental Champion and he says that John Morrison is certainly facing a different Morgan tonight than what he did a few weeks ago on KWF’s Wednesday Night Turmoil. Morrison is athletic in his attacks and the fans often rise to cheer on his offense as he tries to mount comebacks in this match. However as Morrison gains a little momentum, Morgan is always quick to halt the process and it’s his power and intensity that soon has him discuss clothesline Morrison right out of his boots. Morgan covers for One, Two, again Morrison kicks out. Regal says “You see JR, Matt Morgan’s loss to Morrison was a one-time thing. Tonight he’s putting Morrison in his place and believe me when I tell you, The Blueprint Matt Morgan will remain the Intercontinental Champion for a very long time.” JR: “Oh I beg to differ. The Morgan versus Morrison match a couple of weeks ago went exactly like this. Morgan was on top for the majority of the match and Morrison’s heart and athleticism had him come out on top. There’s no reason why the same can’t happen again right here.” As JR completes his sentence we see Morrison springboard off the middle rope and catch Morgan with a Flash Kick. However, Morrison cannot attempt a cover because Morgan tumbles to fall through the ropes and all the way down to ringside. The Blueprint lands on his feet and shakes his head, trying to release the cobwebs. The fans cheer as Morrison sees his opportunity and goes against the ropes. He flies out toward Morgan, corkscrew style over the top rope and connects with the high risk move at ringside. “What a move by Morrison and now he’s back in the match! Come on kid, show’m what you’re made of!” says JR as Morrison stomps away at Morgan by the ring apron. He goes and perches himself atop the steel stairs and he waits for Morgan to get back to his feet before jumping off toward him. The crowd gasp though as Morgan instinctively catches Morrison and he then turns to run by the ring and ram Morrison spine-first into the ring-post. The audience boo as Regal laughs at Morrison’s misfortune. Matt Morgan takes Morrison’s dead weight back into the ring and covers. He gets One, Two – wow, Morrison kicks out. Morgan shakes his head in disbelief as JR wonders if he’s thinking “here we go again.” Regal says that Morgan has to do what he set out to do and hurt John Morrison. “He’s been covering him often and Morrison keeps kicking out. That can only get into the mind of the attacker. Morgan you have to do what you said in your interview; hurt Morrison, put him away, protect that Belt!” We hit the proverbial fourth quarter and now Matt Morgan is not attempting pin covers. He performs his piston-like back elbows in the corner and rocks Morrison’s head before grasping him by the neck and tossing him across the ring like a rag doll. Morgan is relentless as he mounts Morrison to pound his face with closed fist punches. The referee counts to Four before Morgan dismounts. He then picks JoMo up and JR says that he has to put him away now, “that’s enough Morgan, you’ve done enough.” But as he sets up for a Hellavator, he looks at his imaginary watch and shakes his head, mouthing the words “it’s not time yet.” Morgan then Irish whips Morrison hard into the corner before performing a sidewalk slam to drive the air right out of JoMo. Regal commends Morgan’s stance: “That’s it my boy, that’s how to hurt him.” JR says that it’s unnecessary and we watch as Morgan then lifts Morrison once more. He checks his watch and this time he nods before executing a devastating Hellavator on poor JoMo. The fans are stunned in silence as Morgan hooks the leg and gets the One, Two, Three.
Winner and Still Intercontinental Champion: Matt Morgan.
The audience are visibly disappointed as Matt Morgan is handed the Intercontinental Championship. Regal says: “See JR, I told you. John Morrison’s victory versus Morgan on Turmoil was an utter fluke. Tonight the Gold was on the line and Matt Morgan protected the Belt as if it were his family.” “But was the manner in which he did so something he can be proud of? This was supposed to be a wrestling match, but all Morgan did was demolish Morrison for the victory.” “Haha, you’re making yourself sound like a fool JR. Doesn’t John Cena demolish his opponents? Doesn’t The UnderTaker make his opponents rest in peace at WrestleMania? Goodness Jim, next you’ll be telling me that Matt Morgan perhaps should have given Morrison a chance in this match. Ha, what an idiotic notion. Morrison’s not in Morgan’s league and he found that out tonight. Well done Matt, at-a-boy.” As Morgan celebrates atop the turnbuckles to a booing crowd, we see John Morrison roll out of the ring. He stumbles as he walks, but is able to carry himself up the ramp. Morgan sees him exiting, but quickly gets down from the turnbuckles, exits the ring and he runs full speed behind Morrison to knock him out with the Intercontinental Title! JR yells “Oh come on! Why do that?! For God’s sakes, you won the match, it’s over, what’s the point in attacking Morrison like that? He walked away, can’t you have some dignity damn it?!” We see security, referees and medics come to check on Morrison and back Matt Morgan away. The crowd boo as Morgan looks down at Morrison and smiles saying “It’s nothing personal.” Morgan laughs as he exits and Morrison is eventually taken away on a stretcher.
We head backstage where Jeremy Borash is standing by for interview. “Ladies and gentlemen will you please welcome my guests at this time; Konan and the X-Division Champion Rey Mysterio.” The duo walk into shot and straight away we hear booing from the crowd in the arena. JB asks Rey if he’s at all worried about who might win the upcoming Ultimate X match. As Bret Hart explained this past Wednesday, the winner will go on to face Mysterio for the X-Title at KWF WrestleMania. Rey laughs this off. “Am I worried? JB I’ve never been worried in my entire life. I am the littlest big man, I’ve faced giants, I’ve gone up against all the odds, and come out of them as a Champion. Sometimes a World Champion, sometimes an X-Division Champion. I’ve had success in everything I’ve done and I’ll be watching those pretenders in the ring tonight, but I couldn’t care less who wins. I’d take all of’m on at Mania if I had to.” Konan grabs the mic. “That’s right Rey! Orale!” Konan goes on to talk aggressively in Spanish, before translating himself. “Eight chumps are stepping into Ultimate X, all trying to get a shot at the man, Rey Mysterio. The legend of the Cruiserweight Division, now he’s dominating the X-Division homes. These gringos are gonna throw themselves all over this arena, break each other’s backs to get to my boy. But no matter who wins and who heads to Mania, when they come up against the Latino World Order! Orale! Viva La Raza!” Konan slams the mic back into Borash’s chest and the duo exit, leaving JB to hand it back to ringside.
The fans are ready for this one as Kazarian, Christopher Daniels, Alex Shelley, Jay Lethal, Low-Ki and Styler all make their respective entrances. Next out is Daniel Bryan and finally we see the entrance of a surprise, new KWF X-Division superstar, ladies and gentlemen it’s the debut of A-Double, Austin Aries! The fans are glad to see him step between the yellow ring ropes, but he immediately gets some heat as he taunts an ‘up yours’ toward the fans. Regal says “Austin Aries is a welcome addition to KWF Blogs and the man instantly creates a crowd reaction.” JR: “His arrogance is paramount, but I’m sure he believes he can back it up. This one should be one heck of a ride, I been looking forward to this. Let’s go X-Division!”
Kazarian vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Alex Shelley vs. ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal vs. Low-ki vs. Styler vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Austin Aries – Ultimate-X number one contenders match for X-Division Title shot at WrestleMania
The eight participants stand in the ring all looking up at the big ‘X’ hanging above them. JR reminds us that whoever claims that X will be claiming a Title shot against Rey Mysterio in Miami at KWF WrestleMania. As the bell rings and all eight superstars make a quick dash to the corners to climb for the X, JR and Regal discuss how they think this one is gonna go down. JR: “Personally I think Alex Shelley has to be one of the favorites, he’s been in so many Ultimate-X matches they could name it after him.” Regal: “Not for me JR. Daniels has been in plenty of them too, and his experience is going to prove the difference here, I can tell.” The Fallen Angel has managed to get himself halfway across the cables that cross over high above the ring. As the other competitors have knocked each other down and back to the canvas. Daniels gets his fingers on the X, but he is soon compromised as Low-ki launches off the top rope and dropkicks him down. This match starts at a great pace with Jay Lethal and Styler trading blows, Kazarian and Low-ki pick up where they left off this past Wednesday, Daniels and Shelley fight on the outside, and Daniel Bryan exchanges moves with the newest member of the KWF roster, Austin Aries. A-Double is getting the better of the American Dragon, and Regal likes what he sees. “The KWF have done very well in getting this fellow in. He’s a tremendously charismatic, confident and above all talented individual. And that Bret Hart has seen fit to throw him into the match for his debut shows how highly rated he is. Aries could be a dark horse to win this thing Jim.” JR concurs that Aries certainly has talent, “but as far as I know, it wasn’t Bret who signed Aries.” Regal: “Well who did JR? Come on, spill the beans.” JR: “I don’t know for sure William, but I’m led to believe that Aries was not signed by Mr. Hogan, Mr. Flair or Bret Hart.” Regal: “Well that must mean it was a Board thing. Hmm, maybe Borash will know?” Aries meanwhile as he sends Lethal to the outside with a hurracanrana. Lethal lands on top of Daniels and Shelley. Aries then comes off the ropes to fly through and join the pile. It’s chaos on the outside as seven participants bundle in a barrage of punches and kicks. Being so close together allows Kazarian to fly in a huge plancha over the top rope and take out all seven superstars. The fans cheer loudly and chant ‘This is awesome!’
Everyone is down, but Aries has managed to get up first and he makes his ascent to the X. He climbs up the corner, but is soon joined by Lethal. The Macho Fan follows A-Double and as they both shimmy toward the centre, Lethal locks his legs around Aries and drops, pulling him down and slamming him into the mat. There’s an audible gasp from the crowd as Aries appeared to land on his head. JR: “Oh my goodness what a spill. This could be serious, look at Jay. He’s a fierce competitor but he seems to be checking if Aries is okay.” While Lethal bends down to ask Aries if he’s alright, Alex Shelley takes his opportunity to jump over the ropes and use Lethal’s back as a platform to grab the X cable. He works his way to the middle, but Lethal grabs his foot and pulls him down. He shoves Shelley and says “What’s the matter with you!?” Shelley looks innocent, but then slaps Lethal. The fans ‘Oooh’ and Lethal wipes his mouth, before tridling his fingers toward the audience a-la Macho Man and he then lays into Shelley with rights. Shelley fights back and we’ve gone from high flying X-Division to straight out brawling. JR says “Shelley and Lethal were on the old Impact SmackDown and the X-Gold was on TNA RAW. Now this is their chance to compete for the Title at Mania and both men want to make the most of this opportunity.” Regal suggests that since Mysterio’s Championship reign, perhaps the respect factor has deteriorated in the X-Division, but JR begs to differ, pointing out that Lethal checked on Austin Aries after he’d got hurt. As the match goes on we see Styler hit a Busby Kick (Shining Wizard) on Low-ki, Daniels nails a BME on D-Bryan, Kazarian nails Shelley with a Fade to Black, and a recovered Austin Aries hits an impressive Brainbuster on Lethal – with Regal saying “Respect my arse, that Brainbuster just told Lethal that he can shove his concerns for his fellow man.” There is action everywhere, as Styler and Daniels are both taken out by a cross body off of the cable from Shelley. Low-ki nails a Warrior’s Way on Aries, while Lethal hits the Lethal Combination on Frankie Kazarian. Bryan gets the LeBell Lock on Daniels, but he is forced to let go as he sees Kaz getting close to the X. He pulls his foot and as Kaz falls, Bryan grabs his neck and turns Kaz’s fall into a neckbreaker. The fans are loving the action, as this battle continues. We hit the proverbial final quarter as Bryan, Lethal, Aries and Daniels are on a cable each. The audience rumble as they anticipate a winner and they chant and cheer as the four superstars try to kick out at one another to make each other fall. No-one is budging. Meanwhile, Shelley and Styler have made their way up onto the steel structure above the cables. The fans are anticipating something terrible as they balance more than 15ft above the ring. They punch at one another and each nearly fall. Then, incredibly, Shelley nails an enziguiri, which causes Styler to fall. Luckily for him, but not for his opponents, he lands on top of Low-ki and Kazarian below. Shelley looks down to the four men trying to kick one another down. He works his way through the steel, and then leaps off landing in a starfish position onto the point where the cables cross. This impact causes Lethal, Daniels and Aries to fall. But Daniels Bryan saw it coming and brought his legs up to hold on. Shelley tries to stomp him down, and then attempts to unlock Bryan’s fingers. However, Bryan thinks fast and lifts his legs up further to grab the Machine Guns’ head and, with a headscissors, flip Shelley off the cables and down to the canvas. The fans cheer as Bryan is alone on the cables. He reaches across, grabs the X, and wins the match.
Winner and number one contender for the X-Division Title: Daniel Bryan.
JR: “It’s Bryan! It’s Daniel Bryan! He is going to WrestleMania!” Regal: “My, my, what a match that was. I’m out of breath here and I was sat down the whole time. Large elements of luck in Bryan’s win there, but win he did, now he has to figure out how to defeat Rey Mysterio.” Bryan celebrates euphorically, climbing the ropes and holding the X above his head. The fans cheer for Bryan as JR finishes “Matches like that are why we love the X-Division!”
We head to the back where Jeremy Borash is ready to interview the leader of the British Invasion, Wade Barrett. JB: “Mr. Barrett, tonight two of your men go into battle against two iconic superstars who defined a generation of wrestling. Mason Ryan and Rob Terry will go up against The Icon Sting and Stone Cold Steve Austin. What has been the preparation for the Welsh Dragons heading into this contest?” Barrett looks smug as usual. “Preparation JB? Have you seen the size of them? Their preparation was eating a live bear each while doing bicep curls with two buses. Mason and Rob are always ready, ready to destroy people, and that is exactly what they are going to do tonight. Sting and Austin were icons of this business, but now they’re dried up has-beens. Austin only has one knee for crying out loud. My boys will make short work of them, soften them up nicely for Hulk and Naytch at WrestleMania. In fact after tonight, those two won’t even make it to Mania.” Barrett exits as JB hands it back to ringside.
JR and Regal discuss that Tag match, with Regal fully agreeing with Barrett, that Stone Cold and Sting are too old to be taking on goliaths such as Ryan and Terry, and that they could well be to busted up to make WrestleMania after tonight. JR argues that Sting and Austin have still got it, and proved it at the Royal Rumble. “They may have had their disagreements recently, but they’re on the same page now and I think they have an excellent chance of succeeding tonight. Then where are Hogan and Flair gonna run and hide to?!” With that we see the entrance of the World’s Strongest Man, and Hardcore Champion, Mark Henry. Samoa Joe comes out looking near psychotic. He’s carrying a sack full of random weapons with him. Regal laughs saying that Joe certainly reminds him of a Bad Santa. Joe lobs the sack into the ring, which makes Henry exit on the far side. Joe gets in and grabs a kendo stick, before swinging it around his head and beckoning Henry back into the ring.
Mark Henry vs. Samoa Joe – Hardcore Title match part II.
Both men are in the ring as the bell rings and we finally get underway. Joe still has the kendo stick, but Henry has picked up a traffic sign. Joe swings and Henry uses the sign as a shield. A loud clatter is heard as stick and sign smack together. Joe is attacking Henry so fiercely that Henry drops the sign and exits the ring once more. The fans boo as Henry demands that the referee keep Joe back. JR: “This is Hardcore Mark, get back in there and defend your Title.” Regal: “You can’t expect him to go back in there with that kendo stick wielding maniac! He’ll have someone’s eye out!” Joe exits the ring and chases Henry with the kendo stick. Henry heads round the corner of the ring, but turns and dropkicks the steel steps into the knees of Joe, causing him to drop the stick. Henry picks it up and smiles to himself. The fans boo as Henry stalks the Samoan, before lifting the stick high and cracking it down across the back of his challenger. He trash talks Joe between each wielding of the weapon as he hits him again and again and we see huge red marks appear over Joe’s back. Eventually he dumps the broken stick down, and picks Joe up, before backing him into the ring-post. Henry is in total control as Regal talks him up as Hardcore Champion. “All I’ve heard people say is how excited they are to see the likes of Samoa Joseph and Robert Van Dam in the Hardcore Division, making this Title matter again, but this man, Mark Henry is without doubt the most hardcore and terrifying individual in the KWF, and Samoa Joseph is finding that out right now.” Henry throws Joe back into the ring and follows with a chair. He stalks Joe some more, telling him he’s going to end his career, before smashing the chair into his back, and then jamming the top of it into his leg. Joe cries out in pain, as we can see the welts on his back from the earlier shots with the kendo stick. Henry then jams the chair between the top and middle turnbuckle, then picks Joe up. He Irish whips him towards the corner, but Joe reverses and delights the crowd as he launches Henry head first into the chair. Both men fall down to their backs as the fans cheer and chant for Joe. ‘Joe’s gonna killll you!’
Joe gets to his feet first and shows signs of being in pain, but then looks towards Henry with that murderous look in his eye. He lays stomps into Henry with ferocity, and roars out to the crowd, before heading to the sack of goodies he brought to the ring. He takes two trash can lids out and approaches Henry, who is just getting to his feet. He takes the lids and slams them together on Henry’s head like two symbols. Henry stumbles around as Joe drops one of the lids and uses the other to slam across the head and back of the Hardcore Champion. The fans cheer every shot. Joe doesn’t believe he’s doing enough damage though, so he goes to the outside and checks under the ring, before getting a trash can out. JR: “Well he wasn’t satisfied with the lid so he went to get the rest of it.” Joe brings it in and places the bin over Henry’s head, before taking the steel chair and slamming it into the side of it. It makes an almighty crash as Henry falls down. Joe is now running things and seems to be closing in on reclaiming the Title he lost to Henry at the Royal Rumble. JR reminds us that these two have rivaled before over the WCW Title, which included a battle where Henry defeated Joe after the Samoan Submission Machine attempted an optimistic Muscle Buster on the 400-pounder, and failed. This raises the question of whether he will attempt it again, as he perches Henry on the top turnbuckle. “Surely not JR, he can’t be that stupid again.” He isn’t, as he is setting Henry up for a swift kick to the head. Henry falls back down to the canvas and Joe signals for the Kokina Clutch. As Henry gets to his feet, Joe grabs him from behind but Henry resists. Joe can’t quite lock it on or get Henry down. The World’s Strongest Man backs up and squashes Joe against the turnbuckle, before turning around and picking Joe up and down with a World’s Strongest Slam. Regal: “Oh my! What a Slam. And there is your Hardcore Champion. It’s a formality now Jim, a formality.” However, Henry doesn’t have the energy to make the pin right away. He props himself up using the ropes, and really looks dazed from the beating Joe has dished out so far. Before he can make the pin, we hear a roar from the crowd. JR: “It’s Rob Van Dam! RVD is here!” Regal: “What’s that ponytailed lunatic doing here?” JR: “RVD cost Joe the Title at the Rumble, is he here to ensure he doesn’t win it back?” Van Dam goes to the top rope and lines up for a Five Star Frog Splash on Joe, as Henry looks on. RVD leaps off and hits a kick to the head on Henry, sending him to the mat, before coming off the ropes and nailing the Champion with Rolling Thunder! Regal: “Aah! What’s he doing? Why does he feel the need to beat up the Hardcore Champion during matches he’s not even a part of?!” RVD goes over to Joe and slaps him, before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp. Joe is getting to his feet and doesn’t have a clue what happened, as the slap seems to have woken him up. Joe sees RVD on the stage. He also sees Henry down and heads to finally lock on the Kokina Clutch. He pulls back on Henry who struggles, but cannot free himself. Henry starts to fade, and is left with no choice but to tap out.
Winner and New Hardcore Champion: Samoa Joe.
Joe is handed the Title by the referee as the fans cheer. The Samoan isn’t happy though, he just looks up the stage and stares at Van Dam, who is smiling wryly. Van Dam goes back under the raising Tron as Joe turns to the turnbuckles, climbs them and raises the Belt defiantly. JR: “Samoa Joe wins the Hardcore Title back, ironically thanks to the help of the very man who cost him the Belt last month.” Regal: “I still cannot fathom why RVD feels the need to get involved, he’s such an attention seeker that he can’t accept not being in the Title picture himself. Henry was robbed.” “No more so than Joe was last month, perhaps two wrongs do make a right.” Joe exits as Henry gets to his knees and looks on trembling with anger.

Be sure to read KWF WrestleMania 2012!!!
When we come back there is cheering among the crowd in anticipation of WrestleMania, and that cheering turns to boos as Maryse makes her way to the ring. JR explains that we are set to have Chicks in a tag match, and we are to see four of the entrants in the Number One Contender’s Tournament. JR: “We have already seen the young rookies Kaitlyn and AJ Lee go through to the semi-finals on Turmoil these past two weeks, and over the next two weeks we will see these coming four women battle it out in the remaining first round matches. Maryse is joined by her partner, The Glamazon Beth Phoenix. Their opponents are Tamina Snuka, and her tag team partner… “She’s back, all 272 pounds of her! It’s Kharma!” Regal: “Ah yes, the artist formerly known as Awesome Kong. I think the whole Chicks Division just shrieked in terror. (He sighs) ahh, chicks who thought of that idea.”
Maryse & Beth Phoenix vs. Tamina & Kharma
As the match gets underway, Regal comments on how sorry he feels for Maryse, on account of her being the smallest participant by quite a distance. “Surrounded by masses of large women, and Mick Foley, is a regular Saturday night for me, but I somehow doubt Maryse is so crazy about the situation.” She is right to be frightened as Tamina takes the fight to her in the early going. She fires the French Miss into the corner and clotheslines her as she stumbles back into the middle of the ring. Tamina dominates Maryse with several offensive moves, as JR reminds us of how the Chicks Tournament came about. Bret Hart decided to create it to determine the ‘best of the rest’ in order to give Angelina Love a tough challenge on the Grandest Stage of Them All. It also carries on the tradition of a KWF Chick having to earn their shot at Mania against the odds, as Love herself booked her spot at Mania 2011 by winning a Chick Royal Rumble. He mentions again that Kaitlyn advanced after defeating Natalya Neidhart, and this past week she was joined by her best friend AJ Lee, who beat Eve Torres. The Chickbusters found out they will face each other in the semi-finals. The remaining first round matches will see Tamina take on Beth Phoenix and Maryse go up against Kharma. “The Maryse Kharma match will happen this Wednesday on Turmoil.” The action in the ring has turned and Maryse has managed to get into the match as Tamina reached over her and she poked her in the eye. She then hit a Russian leg sweep and made the tag to Phoenix. These two will face off in the first round of the tournament, and Beth decides to assert her authority as she hits a bodyslam followed by an elbow drop. Beth flexes for the crowd, and then looks towards Kharma, who stares menacingly back. Beth continues to beat down Tamina as JR reminds us that Kharma has been out of action since she was attacked backstage almost a year ago by The Beautiful People. JR: “You can bet she’ll be wanting to get her revenge. What better motivation going into this tournament.” Beth lifts Tamina up to hit the Glam Slam, but Tamina turns it into a bulldog. Both Chicks are down as the fans cheer for Tamina. She works her way across as Phoenix gets to her feet, but it’s too late as the tag is made to Kharma. The Kong-like figure of the Chicks division is in the ring and Beth looks defensive. She tries to get a right hand in by surprise, but Kharma grabs her hand, before pushing her hard into the corner. Beth looks back in shock, before tagging Maryse in. The French Miss clearly doesn’t want to get in the ring, but Kharma helps her out by dragging her in. Kharma has Maryse by the throat, staring wide eyed at her, almost reducing Maryse to tears. Kharma puts her out of her misery however as she lifts her up and down with a devastating Implant Buster. She hooks the leg and noticeably, Beth Phoenix doesn’t rush in to break the inevitable Three-count.
Winners: Kharma and Tamina.
Regal: “Well that was… terrifying.” JR: “Kharma certainly didn’t waste any time there. And she will face Maryse again in the next two weeks. Hopefully the young French girl will put up slightly more of a fight.” Tamina and Kharma have their hands raised as Beth makes her way up the ramp, looking back at Kharma and her upcoming tournament opponent.
We see a video package reliving the events that have led to the upcoming match. We see footage of The Absolute Lashley’s debut at KWF WrestleMania 2011 where he helped The DeadMan, The UnderTaker retain his undefeated WrestleMania Streak. Since then Lashley was revealed to be The UnderTaker’s apprentice, a hand-picked student in the evil artistry of the Dark Side. Over the past several months the Keystone Wrestling Federation has witnessed the re-emergence of CM Punk as one of the top competitors in the world of Professional Wrestling. Punk had often told everyone that he is the best wrestler in the world, but The UnderTaker has taken it upon himself to challenge Punk’s words. The DeadMan has chosen CM Punk, almost demanded, that if Punk wants to be the Best In The World then he must put a halt to The UnderTaker’s Streak at WrestleMania. CM Punk agreed to the match and this past week on Turmoil he asked KWF Board representative Bret Hart to make a match tonight at SuperBrawl for Punk to face Taker’s protégé The Absolute Lashley. “I want Lashley banned from ringside at WrestleMania. But I don’t want to be some pussy who comes running to the boss to keep the big bad monster away, I propose that I enforce that ban. I propose that this Sunday, at SuperBrawl, CM Punk goes one-on-one with The Absolute Lashley - with no DeadMan in his corner. If I win, then Lashley is banned from ringside at Mania.” Bret Hart agreed to the match and the stipulations, but only after he asked Punk if he really thought this would be in his best interest. Punk was confident that he can overcome Lashley and make sure that his match with Taker is one on one. Tonight CM Punk has to face that demon. Can he beat The Absolute One? Or will SuperBrawl prove to be the beginning of the end for the self proclaimed Best In The World?…
CM Punk vs. The Absolute Lashley
The bell rings and Punk looks at Lashley as if to say he doesn’t quite know what he’s gotten himself into. The fans cheer Punk on, but there’s an aura about Lashley where we can tell that, although he may not admit it, CM Punk is quaking in his boots. “Calling The Absolute Lashley a monster is one hell of an understatement. To this day nobody knows the extent to which The UnderTaker has gone to make Lashley the way he is, but since KWF Survivor Series of 2010 we have not heard a word from the old Bobby Lashley.” “JR, when The UnderTaker was a child he set his family home on fire. He was responsible for the deaths of his parents and his half-brother Kane. Of course we know that Kane survived the fire, but had it not been for UnderTaker then Kane wouldn’t be the way he is today. Now, The UnderTaker is the Lord of Darkness and I believe that when he abducted Bobby Lashley he put Lashley through torment. It’s a sickening thought, but the old Thundercat Lashley was loveable. A friendly giant, a nice guy. Now the being that he is is totally unapproachable and I tell you, if UnderTaker wanted to mentor an enigma as scary as himself, well, he succeeded and I believe that he’s moulded him exactly the way he wanted. CM Punk, I don’t think you’re going to make it to Mania mate. Facing The Absolute Lashley is a death wish.” We watch as Punk goes to tie up with Lashley, but The Absolute One doesn’t reciprocate. Punk steps away and Lashley then slowly walks toward him and then with a burst of speed he sprints to palm Punk hard in the chest and the thrust of the palm acts almost as a blast that sends Punk hard toward the turnbuckles. The audience gasp at the move as CM Punk drops to his knees, breathing heavily and gasping for air. Lashley goes toward him and clobbers Punk over his back before kicking him toward the corner. He steps back and runs with an attempted knee to Punk’s face, but Punk is quick to get out of dodge and he swiftly slides under the ropes and exits the ring. Lashley is fast to leap out of the ring and go after him and the comms discuss how The Absolute Lashley is almost like an UnderTaker upgrade. JR: “That’s a scary thought.” Regal: “It’s a scary reality Jim. The Absolute Lashley is just as terrifying as UnderTaker upon his entrance. His strikes are just like Taker’s when he punches, but he’s faster, he’s more agile and his moves have a shattering impact. I’m telling you, CM Punk might die tonight.”
Lashley stalks Punk around ringside and Punk tries to be clever in running in and out of the ring to break the referee’s count. However, when Punk turns around and stops in his tracks there’s no one following him. He looks around and asks the ref where Lashley went, but the ref doesn’t know. Then from underneath Punk we see Lashley’s masked head appear from under the ring apron and he moves to stand up between Punk’s legs under Punk. He lifts him into position for an Electric Chair, but Punk tries to reverse it. He swings atop Lashley’s shoulders and attempts to hurracanrana Lashley down, but instead The Absolute One overpowers Punk to swing him mid-move and he slams Punk’s entire body into the barricade. Lashley then picks Punk up by the head and launches him hard into the steel stairs. JR and Regal review replays of what happened prior and we see that mid-chase, Lashley went under the ring to cut Punk off from his escape. Now Lashley has control once more and CM Punk is too hurt to run. We watch as Punk instinctively carries himself back in the ring, but as he turns to try stand up, the being that he’s grasping at is the body of The Absolute Lashley. “Oh my God” says JR as Lashley waits for Punk to stand. He then turns to sprint against the far ropes and as he comes back Punk can’t react in time and Lashley takes him down with an UnderTaker-like flying lariat. The crowd boo and some of them are stunned in awe of Lashley’s dominance and we watch as he then picks Punk up by the arm and it looks as if he’s taking him toward the corner, perhaps for a vintage UnderTaker clobbering of the shoulder. However, before Lashley can complete the climb we see Punk stretch his leg to volley Lashley right up side the temple. The fans cheer as Lashley seems stunned. He shoves Punk away momentarily, but the push has Punk inadvertently knock down the referee. Punk wants to check on the ref, but he knows he must capitalize while he has the chance. He runs toward the corner and kicks Lashley’s head again. Lashley drops to the canvas and Punk then picks him up to lean him toward the corner. He knees him in the gut as he gets this look on his face as if to say that he can do this, he can defeat Lashley tonight. The fans are on their feet as Punk finally gets to build some momentum. He sets for an Irish whip toward the far corner, but “oh no!” gasps JR as Lashley reverses the whip so that he swings in the centre of the ring and he pulls Punk toward himself and in one swift deft move he pulls Punk in toward himself performs an over the top belly to belly suplex! JR and Regal are astounded and tell that Lashley may well be setting up for his finisher here. Lashley stands up after the move, but then the arena lights darken into a blood red. ♫Kane’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and we watch as the Tron rises and The UnderTaker’s brother, the Masked Demon Kane makes his way down to the ring. The Absolute Lashley is unafraid and he steps out of the ring to meet Kane at the foot of the ramp. Lashley goes at him with a punch as the lights turn normal and the music cuts, but Kane comes back with an uppercut that sends Lashley to the floor! Lashley almost immediately gets up and he goes at Kane again, but Kane ducks an attempted clothesline. He grabs Lashley by the head and smashes him like a basketball off the ring apron. He then rolls his brothers protégé into the ring before following in and lifting Lashley to turn him over and deliver a hellacious Tombstone! The crowd cheer as JR yells “Tombstone! Tombstone! Tombstone!” We see Kane then look over at Punk’s body and he grabs Punk’s arm to pull him over Lashley. Kane stands up to exit out the ring. He walks slowly up the ramp and meanwhile we see the referee crawl back in the ring. He sees Punk over Lashley and he counts; One!… Two!… Three!
Winner: CM Punk.
The crowd go absolutely berserk as does JR; “Punk wins! Punk wins! Lashley’s banned from ringside at Mania William, can you believe it?!” “Oh I can’t JR, but what on earth was Kane doing out here?! He had no business in this match and Lashley bloody well had the thing won.” JR reminds us that Kane came to the ring to talk off-mic to his brother The UnderTaker two Turmoil’s ago and nobody knows what was said between the two. Regal continues: “I said then JR that Kane was either telling Taker that he was jealous of Lashley or that he was warning his brother that hell was coming for The Absolute One. Good lord, we still don’t know the answer either way, but this result will sky rocket CM Punk’s ego. Albeit he was barely conscious, but he’s just defeated The Absolute Lashley.” JR: “Oh I think CM Punk will be the first to admit that he survived this match and the outcome was fortunate. However, the result means that it will be Punk versus Taker one on one at Mania now. God what a match that should be. What a SuperBrawl this has been and ladies and gentlemen, we’re far from over!”
We’re shown a video package recapping how the Keystone Wrestling Federation was once a company split into two brands. Bret Hart was the General Manager of TNA RAW on Monday nights and Ric Flair ran Impact SmackDown on Friday’s. The Hitman was injured and taken out by LAX and so Hulk Hogan was named the Interim TNA RAW GM. A war ensued between Hogan and Flair’s respective brands and a battle was set to commence under traditional Survivor Series rules at the pay-per-view in 2011. However, Team Hogan led by Stone Cold Steve Austin and Team Flair led by The Icon Sting were both in for a surprise as the Hulkster and the Nature Boy had pulled the wool over everybody’s eyes. They’d manipulated the match contracts for the Survivor Series pay-per-view and legalities resulted in them taking sole control of KWF Blogs. They subsequently scrapped the brands and made the KWF a single roster one show a week blog. They went on to unify the various Championships carried by TNA RAW and Impact SmackDown and they made the new range of Belts to be exclusive to KWF Blogs. The KWF Board of Directors let it be. They saw success in Wednesday Night Turmoil and felt that the prestige of the company’s own Titles would bode well in perhaps getting the KWF writer’s to be hired some day. (#HireFarook). However, becoming an increasing problem was the decision making of Mr. Hogan and Mr. Flair and thus Bret Hart came back onto the scene. Now, in the build up to KWF WrestleMania 2012, the Board have decided that Mr. Hogan and Mr. Flair can retain control of KWF Blogs and the Board and Bret Hart will step down from their duties – if Hogan and Flair can defeat Stone Cold Steve Austin and Sting at WrestleMania. However, if Austin and Sting win then Hogan and Flair step down onto the active roster and the KWF Board are entitled to name a new General Manager for KWF Blogs. On the Road To WrestleMania Steve Austin and Sting have not seen eye to eye. They both blamed one another for the Hogan/Flair takeover and have since done very little to rock the boat of the men in charge. Sting went to Bret Hart, he spoke to the Board and Austin found it an insult that he and Sting couldn’t just whup Hulk and Ric’s asses and boot them out the door themselves. Bret Hart said that Sting was right to do things through the Board because legalities could have meant that the Board’s hands would be tied if Hogan/Flair pressed charges against Austin/Sting if an ‘ass whupping’ had occurred. Austin and Sting’s varying points of view continue, but this past week on Turmoil we saw Sting come to the rescue of Stone Cold after Wade Barrett and Drew McIntyre took Austin down and tried to administer a cheap shot before their match tonight. Now, coming up on SuperBrawl, we have the British Invasion’s Welsh Dragon’s Mason Ryan and Rob Terry versus Austin and Sting. Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair hope that the young Welshmen can maul the Rattlesnake and The Icon before Mania, but after with the company’s future on the line at the Grandest Stage of Them All, Austin and Sting may see this coming match as a warm-up for when they face Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. Ladies and gentlemen hold on to your hats. Steve Austin and The Icon team up next, Live here at SuperBrawl!
Mason Ryan & Rob Terry vs. Sting & Stone Cold Steve Austin
The bell rings and the fans are on their feet to see Austin and Sting wrestle on the same team for the first time ever on KWF Blogs. They make no eye contact and do not speak to one another as Austin’s actions tell Sting that he’s the one starting the match. Austin steps toward the legal Rob Terry and the two lock up, Sting and Mason Ryan stepping between the ropes to stand in their respective corners. We see Austin corner Terry, but Terry is very strong and he turns the momentum around and maneuvers to snapmare Austin back toward the centre of the ring. Terry quickly slams his foot to Austin’s spine and he then makes a tag to Mason Ryan. Ryan comes in to perform a rear chinlock on Austin as JR tells that both young Welshmen are clearly concentrating on the well documented injured neck of Stone Cold Steve Austin. “Don’t they have any respect? I mean Austin’s a Hall of Famer, how can people target his neck with the opening few minutes of a match.” Regal responds: “Quit your belly aching JR. God, don’t you know this is a wrestling match?! You’re going to have a go at them for attempting a pin in a minute. We all know you and Stone Cold are old chums, but keep your biased to yourself and watch these fine young men in action.” JR: “Ha, that’s the pot calling the kettle black.”
Sting watches on and reaches out a hand, but Terry and Ryan tag back and forth and do a good job of keeping Stone Cold in their corner. Ryan’s legal and he lifts Austin for a power slam, but Stone Cold is smart to slip down his back and drop and roll under the bottom rope and out the ring. Regal: “Ha, Austin’s a coward.” JR: “Oh he’s no coward, he knows exactly what he’s doing.” JR’s proved to be right as Mason Ryan is lured out toward Stone Cold, but Austin is able to hit him with rights before bashing his head off the announcers table. The fans cheer as Austin is on top, but Rob Terry comes along to help his partner – but then we see Sting run along the ring apron and he dives off to land a textbook flying clothesline on the oncoming Terry. The fans go wild as Austin and Sting make eye contact. Stone Cold rolls Mason Ryan into the ring and then gets in as well to tag Sting. Sting waits for a moment while Ryan gets up and then he measures to land an almighty Stinger Splash! The Bradley Center erupts as Sting “Whoooo”’s out to the crowd, but then Rob Terry makes an illegal interference to come in and clothesline Sting right out of his boots. Austin tries to come in, but the ref stops him and then we watch as Terry helps Ryan up and they both pick Sting up to double press-slam him, sternum first right in the middle of the ring. The audience boo some more and we watch as Terry and Ryan tag and Terry legally covers The Icon, but only gets Two.
Terry next goes to Sting’s legs and kicks at them one after the other. He tags Mason who comes in to hold Sting’s legs whilst Terry goes against the ropes and comes back to splash on them. The referee demands he exit and then Ryan covers Sting, but again only gets Two. Regal: “You see how they’ve done their homework Jim? Wade Barrett must’ve gone through so many tapes and YouTube clips of Austin and Sting’s matches. They know Austin’s surgical history about his neck and they know that Sting needs the use of his legs to administer the Scorpion Deathlock. Mason and Rob are really impressing me tonight.” JR: “William I gotta say I can’t disagree. To be honest I thought that these guys would be here to do a number on Austin and Sting. I thought they’d be here to hurt them. But you know, with the lack of Gold the British Invasion has had over the past several months, I think Wade Barrett has told these guys to make a point tonight. I mean, they’re still doing the job of hurting Austin and Sting, there’s no doubt about that, but they’re slowly calculated attacks and they’re certainly giving Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair targets in what to hit come Mania time.” Terry and Ryan continue to tag back and forth and the fans cheer on Sting, but The Icon takes a lot of punishment.
Austin becomes frustrated waiting in the corner, but thankfully Sting kicks out after each of Ryan and Terry’s attempted covers. Ryan performs a half crab submission, but Sting eventually reaches the ropes. Stone Cold comes in to attack Ryan, but the referee backs him off and this allows for yet another double team. Terry comes in and the Welsh Dragons try to perform a double suplex, but Sting’s ring awareness has him kick off the middle rope to dislodge the move and the fans scream as The Icon bounces off the ropes to double clothesline the young Brits and now momentum may change. Austin claps his hands to get the crowd going and they clap Sting on as he crawls along the canvas. Rob Terry soon gets up and he tries pulling Sting’s leg to prevent the tag, but Sting dives toward his corner and a tag is made! Stone Cold Steve Austin comes in all fired up and he clobbers Terry toward the ring ropes before backing up and then clotheslining him over. Austin then turns to run toward an oncoming Mason Ryan and Austin takes him down with a Lou Thesz Press! The crowd go wild as Austin comes off the ropes to nail an elbow. He covers, gets One, gets Two – but Rob Terry’s back in to make the save. The referee loses control as Terry picks Austin up. He knees him in the gut before setting him up for a running powerslam, but we see that Sting has recovered. He pulls Austin out of the move by the leg and as Terry turns round he’s kicked in the gut and *WHAM* Stunner! “Austin stuns Terry! Austin stuns Terry!” yells JR. We then see Mason Ryan get up, but before he can steady himself Sting grabs him by the head and drops him with an emphatic Scorpion DeathDrop! Austin asks the ref who’s legal and he points toward Ryan. Austin looks at Sting who goes to kneel on Terry’s body and the Rattlesnake covers Mason Ryan for the One! Two! Three!
Winners: Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Icon Sting.
The crowd go wild as ♫Austin’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and we watch as he and Sting kick-roll Ryan and Terry out of the ring. Sting and Stone Cold exchange words, almost as if they finally agree that they do respect one another. William Regal says that they didn’t particularly work as a team, “they did their singles thing and it all worked out for them. They were lucky that’s all.” JR: “Aaww that’s sour grapes William.” We see Sting set to exit the ring, but Austin asks him to stay. His music cuts off and he steps toward the corner of the ring where the timekeeper is. He’s handed a microphone and he asks for a couple of beers. He hands one to Sting and the two open the beers together. Austin says “If ya want ol’ Stone Cold and The Icon to kick Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair’s co-chairmen asses at KWF’s WrestleMania, gimme a Hell Yeah!” the crowd yell ‘Hell Yeah!’ Austin and Sting clink beers and JR and all the fans are excited as Austin and Sting are finally, really and truly on the same page. ♫Austin’s music♫ «< click to play) plays out the scene and JR finishes: “I can’t wait for WrestleMania!”
We cut to a video showing how tonight’s main event came about. Mr. Anderson reached the pinnacle of his career at KWF Survivor Series last year when he defeated Wade Barrett to win the WWE Championship. Anderson went on to face CM Punk at Starrcade in order to unify the Belts and claim the first ever KWF World Title. However, the duo were thwarted as they were both Counted Out, but in order to produce a winner, Hogan and Flair sent it into overtime - but they introduced a third competitor in the match, the number one contender John Cena. A fresh Cena came down and took advantage by FU-ing the exhausted Anderson and claiming the Belt for himself. Anderson and Punk both felt screwed, and Anderson attacked Cena two weeks later on Turmoil, causing him to lose to fan favorite Zack Ryder. As a punishment for his aggressive pursuit of Cena, Hogan and Flair told Anderson he wouldn’t be getting his rematch for the Title, handing Punk the chance instead. To rub salt into the wounds, Cena cost Anderson his place in the Royal Rumble by distracting him in his qualifying match against Stone Cold. But last Wednesday, Anderson shocked the world by hitting the KWF World Champion with a Mic Check on the last moment of the last Turmoil before SuperBrawl. Bret Hart had been teasing Cena that his SuperBrawl opponent would show himself by the end of the night, and Cena thought he had got the last word by FU-ing AJ Styles during what had been an epic match between The Phenomenal One and CM Punk. However, Anderson stole the show by emerging from under the rising Tron and slamming an unsuspecting Cena to the steel, before revealing that Bret had handed him the rematch that he never got under Hogan and Flair. Now we will finally get the match Anderson has been after ever since Starrcade. “It’s Anderson versus Cena, winner goes to WrestleMania as KWF Champion to face AJ Styles!” We come back into the arena to the ♫Thuganomic music of KWF Champ, John Cena♫ «< click to play). The fans boo roundly as the cocky Cena makes his way to the ring. The Doctor seems to be embracing the hate, smiling all the way. JR says that Cena has always been a bad guy in the KWF. Regal says that he’s a great guy, “Just because he doesn’t care about the fans and just because he’s the chosen Champ by Hogan and Flair, doesn’t make him any less of a Champion. Cena embodies success and people can hate him all they want. He’s the prototype that every wrestler should aspire to and he completely deserves to be the KWF Champion. It’s the most prestigious Title in all of Professional Wrestling and believe me, Cena won’t give that Belt up tonight.” The fans mood soon turns as ♫Mr. Anderson’s theme hits♫ «< click to play). They cheer as he comes out and announces himself at the top of the stage, before racing to the ring and laying into Cena before the bell rings.
John Cena vs. Mr. Anderson – KWF World Heavyweight Championship
Anderson is going nuts on the Champ, as the referee gives up trying to split them up and just asks for the bell to start the match. Eventually Cena is able to push Anderson off, but as he gets to his feet, Anderson clotheslines him down. The crowd scream with approval as Anderson removes his KWF ‘A-hole Anonymous’ t-shirt. He wipes it between his legs and then throws it in the Doctor’s face. JR says how good it is to see Anderson return after a month out following his loss to Stone Cold, caused by a distraction from Cena, and he is fired up to get revenge on the man who pinned him at Starrcade. Regal says that Anderson has completely disrespected Cena by the way in which this match has started; “You can’t leg it to the ring and attack a man like that, Cena’s the Champ!” Anderson is getting all the offense in early on, sending Cena into the corner, but he gets a face full of elbow as he runs at him. Cena hits a suplex and covers for One and a half. He’s finally managed to get on top of Anderson. The Champ looks angry as he wasn’t expecting such an assault from Anderson, but he’s in control now as he works over the challenger. He backs him up into the corner and starts hitting him with shots, lefts and rights, before grabbing Anderson’s head and throwing him halfway across the ring. He waits for Anderson to get up before racing across to attempt a clothesline, but Anderson anticipates this and he uses Cena’s own momentum against him to throw Cena over the top rope. The fans cheer as Anderson heads to the outside and this match turns on its head again. He throws Cena into the barrier, before hitting a modified face wash. He is back in an aggressive mood again, and picks Cena up only to launch him into the steel steps. Cena is taking a beating here as JR comments on how Anderson’s determination could be set to book him in the main event at WrestleMania. Regal: “I would certainly love to see someone throw AJ Styles into things the way Anderson is doing to Cena here, but I can’t see that happening as Cena will crush Anderson like a grape as soon as he gets back into this.” Cena does look close to getting back into things as he gets up, but he’s clotheslined over the barrier by Anderson. Instead of counting the two men out, the referee follows the action, attempting to get them back in the ring. They have taken things into the crowd. Anderson is hitting Cena with rights, before grabbing a beer from a KWF fan and throwing it in Cena’s face.
The crowd cheer as Anderson takes Cena further through the audience and launches him over the barrier again. They have worked their way to the stage, and Anderson rolls Cena up onto it, just in front of the Tron. He climbs up and gets Cena to his feet, but out of nowhere, Cena gets him up on his shoulders and slams him down on the steel with an FU! The fans look on in shock as Cena stumbles to get up. He looks at Anderson’s body and then grabs the referee by the collar and shoves him towards the ring. The ref obliges, scared of the Champ and Cena follows him down the ramp. He gets in the squared circle and commands the official to start the Ten-count. As the ref starts to count, JR comments. “Cena trying to take the cheap way out, what a surprise. He was getting his ass handed to him whipped by Anderson and wants to win by Count Out. And why all of a sudden does the referee decide that Count Outs apply, he wasn’t counting earlier!” Regal: “Will you shush JR, Cena is about to retain, that’s all that matters here.” Meanwhile, Anderson is slowly crawling toward the ring. It doesn’t look like he’s going to make it as Cena yells at the ref to count faster. The count reaches “Eeeiiight!” as Anderson reaches the bottom of the ramp. Anderson manages to get to his feet and stumble to the ring, before sliding under the bottom rope at the count of Nine and seven eigths. The fans cheer but Cena doesn’t, going to lay to boot into his opponent, but Anderson instinctively rolls him up and gets a Two-count from nothing. Cena gets up wide eyed and rushes to take Anderson down, but he runs straight into a Mic Check! “Mic Check! Mic Check! Mic Check!” screams JR. Regal: “How can he do that?! All that energy has come from nothing!” JR: “Oh I think Anderson’s done his homework and I think he was buying time on his way back to the ring. He got in so late, but he knew what he was doing, using almost the full Ten-count to allow himself some recovery time. A very intelligent move by the fan favorite here.” Regal: “Intelligent? Anderson?! Don’t let CM Punk hear you say that.” Anderson is down next to Cena, and is slowly able to raise his arm and slump it over the Champ. 1… 2… kickout! Cena gets his shoulder up at the very last moment. The fans can’t believe it. The match goes on, back and forth once more as Cena hits the Five-Knuckle Shuffle, but as he goes for another FU, Anderson grabs the rope and knees Cena in the head. As he drops down he goes for another Mic Check, but Cena elbows him away. He then rakes the eyes of Anderson, who is blinded. The referee checks on Anderson, while Cena grabs his Thuganomic thick metal chain from the corner. JR: “Wait, what’s he doing with that?” Cena approaches Anderson, pushing the ref in the back, and smashing Anderson in the skull with the chain. The fans boo as the referee turns around. Cena has thrown the evidence out of the ring and grabbed Anderson, before lifting him up and hitting another FU. It’s academic as he covers and the referee counts Three.
Winner and Still KWF World Heavyweight Champion: John Cena.
JR is incensed that Cena’s managed to retain, using his chain in the process and the crowd boo like hell with disapproval. JR: “Cena couldn’t get it done by conventional methods, so he has to resort to that, and that’s exactly the sort of Champion he is. I am disgusted!” Regal: “Spare me JR. John Cena is holding the KWF World Championship above his head, What else matters? Come on, tell me? Is Anderson the Champion? No. What about Punk or the old guard like Austin, Sting, Kurt Angle even? No one can match The Doctor, and well done that man. Now John Cena heads to WrestleMania to take on Royal Rumble winner AJ Styles.” JR: “That’s right, and by the way, Angle was fired from the KWF and guys like Punk, Austin and Sting all have their hands full. I hope The Phenomenal One tears him a new A. But you’ve got to feel for Mr. Anderson, he was so close to victory.” Regal: “Not close enough JR, not close enough.” Cena holds the Belt high as Hogan and Flair emerge on the stage to applaud him. He points to them and slaps the front of the Belt as JR finishes “Bret Hart is back, but there is still disorder and underhanded shenanigans here in the KWF. Maybe WrestleMania will finally give us peace from this corrupt situation. John Cena, the Doctor of Thuganomics, is still KWF World Champion. Damn it!” The pay-per-view fades out on the image of John Cena holding the KWF World Title above his head as Anderson remains flat out on the canvas.
