We come in via a video graphic and a voiceover telling us that the Road to WrestleMania is filled with opportunity. But with opportunity, there is always a price to pay… the Elimination Chamber! After the KWF Royal Rumble, General Manager of KWF Blogs, Edge, decided that he wanted to have a Triple Threat World Heavyweight Title match at WrestleMania. John Cena won the Rumble, earning the first spot in the Mania main event. Tonight, we find out who else will complete the 2nd and 3rd spots. The winner of the Elimination Chamber match will advance and so too will the victor of the World Title showdown between British Invasion leader Wade Barrett and reigning World Champion AJ Styles. Ladies and gentlemen, this is where the final pieces of the puzzle get put into place for WrestleMania, but, nothing can be decided before SUPERBRAWL!…
The pyro’s go off, the fans go wild and we are welcomed to the SuperBrawl pay-per-view by Jim Ross and William Regal at ringside. The comms tell us how excited they are by tonight’s card and they speak of what a great honor it is to be in JR’s home state of Oklahoma. We’re reminded what action is scheduled for this evening. JR: “For the first time ever, Zack Ryder has a chance at Randy Orton and the Intercontinental Championship. AJ Lee has her rematch against Angelina Love for the Women’s Title and William, what about Alberto Del Rio versus Sheamus? Del Rio stole the Hardcore Title at the Rumble and he’s made no secret of the fact that LAX will join him at ringside to ensure that he retains the Title here tonight. What’s Sheamus supposed to do about that?” Regal: “There’s not a lot he can do Jim, but before we continue, let’s tell our audience of the news coming from our Headquarters today. Well, in fact, there’s no real news to tell. All we know is that Edge has a meeting with the big bosses of the KWF and in his absence, it’s KWF Hardcore Ambassador Mick Foley who’s in charge of SuperBrawl. Fancy giving him control of a show that’s named SuperBrawl. Haha.”
With that, we hear ♫the music of Randy Orton♫ «< click to play) and KWF’s Apex Predator slowly makes his entrance. The comms take this time to remind us of the combatants that will wrestle in the Elimination Chamber tonight. JR: “Panther, King Dolph, Samoa Joe! What a great opportunity this is for them.” Regal: “But don’t forget former Champ CM Punk, Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle and the Ultimate Fighter Brock Lesnar! If there’s ever an environment that you don’t want to be in with Lesnar, it’s the Chamber Jim.” We’re reminded that the X-Division Championship will be on the line tonight as Jack Evans is set to defend against Christopher Daniels. Gambit and The Joker put the Tag Titles on the line against the returning Beer Money Inc and as well as Sting versus Kane to determine The UnderTaker’s match at WrestleMania, of course, it’s Wade Barrett versus AJ Styles for the KWF World Heavyweight Championship in the main event. JR: “It’s going to be one heck of a night, and folks we’re glad to have you with us!” ♫Ohhh Rad-i-oohh Tell Me Everything You Know♫ «< click to play).
Randy Orton vs. Zack Ryder – Intercontinental Title
There’s a pause at the beginning of the match as Ryder looks around him and he realizes that this is the biggest match of his career. The comms remind us that Ryder earned this match by way of popular demand and social media. JR: “He was told to get #ICRyder tweets and he delivered. Edge awarded him the match, but now he has to face the harsh reality of facing Randy Orton.” Regal: “Haha, yes and Orton is no attention whore in that ring. The Intercontinental Championship is a token of The Viper’s legacy and I’m telling you this, he’s not letting that Belt go. Zack Ryder may be a wildcard and there may be as many people cheering for him as there is for Orton, but at the end of the day, this is ending with an RKO and it’ll be lights out for Mister Woo Woo Woo.”
The contest begins and while Ryder looks nervous, he also wrestles very well and focuses to keep up with The Viper. He avoids any mat-wrestling in the early going and does what he can to try stay one step ahead of Orton. Orton goes for a drop-toe-hold, but Ryder kneels to bounce off the canvas and stand up. Orton gets up and Ryder clotheslines him down. Orton picks himself up by the ropes, but Ryder doesn’t attack. He waits and JR says that Ryder has done his homework: “I think Zack knows that he doesn’t have to hurt Orton here. All he has to do is pin his shoulders down for a Three-count. It’s taking a lot of concentration, but Ryder’s looking to pick his spots and I believe that this is a good game plan. Orton wouldn’t have expected this.”
Half the fans chant Orton’s name and the other half shout ‘Woo! Woo! Woo!’ as this intriguing contest continues. Ryder maintains his strategy, but it’s at ringside where things backfire and as he tries to run at Orton, he’s caught with a snap-scoop-powerslam and Ryder’s back hits the floor hard. Orton finally has Ryder where he wants him and he administers the around the clock stomp, stamping hard on each limb of Long Island Iced Z. Orton gets Ryder back into the ring, but Ryder gets to his knees and scraps at Orton through the ropes. Regal: “Game plan’s out the window now. It’s all about survival Jim and Ryder knows he’s in trouble.” However, Ryder is able to scrap enough so that he gets Orton by the middle turnbuckle and the ring-post. He lays knees into Orton’s chest through the ropes and then drags him in the ring to lay him by the bottom turnbuckle.
JR: “Don’t speak too soon, Zack Ryder may have him here! This could be it, Ryder may be about to pull off a huge upset.” Ryder backs up and he gets the crowd going, fist-pumping “Woo! Woo! Woo!” before charging toward Orton for a Broski Boot – but no, The Viper slithers up in typical Orton fashion and he clotheslines Ryder down hard. Zack gets up, but another clothesline takes him down and then Orton pounces, picking Ryder up, draping his legs over the middle rope and he snarls before *BAM* Orton-DT plants Ryder face-first into the canvas. It’s all elementary from here as Orton slithers around Ryder’s body, measures as he stands up and *BAM* RKO! RKO! – and Orton hooks the legs for the One, Two and Three.
Winner and Still KWF Intercontinental Champion: Randy Orton.
♫Orton’s music♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd go wild at what turned out to be a textbook performance from the Intercontinental Champion. JR: “Ryder put up a fight and he did all he could, but really, when all was said and done, there’s not many that can compete on Randy Orton’s level right now.” Regal: “Yes and the fans know that Jim. They cheered for Ryder when he entered and they were split throughout the match, but when Orton got going with those clotheslines, the volume in this arena rose for the rise of The Viper. It was quite incredible and Orton fed off their venom. And the bite, the bite was the RKO and well done to Orton. That was brilliant. Bravo.” Orton raises his Intercontinental Title, not acknowledging Ryder as he gets out of the ring. Ryder looks disappointed as JR finishes: “There is no equal to the Intercontinental Champion, Randy Orton.”
We head backstage where the man in charge for the night, Mick Foley, is talking with one of the referees. The two finish their conversation, however, as he’s about to walk away, he is attacked from behind by Hernandez. All of a sudden the whole of LAX is on the scene and laying kicks and punches into Foley. Alberto Del Rio isn’t getting his hands dirty, but is directing traffic as Rey Mysterio and Homicide pick Foley up, propping him in position for Hernandez to his a big boot to the face. SuperMex then lifts the Hardcore Ambassador into the air, before Border Tossing him onto an equipment box. Foley falls back into a stack of metal pipes, and has been badly beaten down. The referee comes over and signals for medics to come right away. LAX dust their hands and make a quick escape. JR: “Mick Foley has been taken out! Somebody get back there and help him!” Regal: “So who’s in charge now?”
We move across elsewhere backstage where Jeremy Borash is set to interview one of the participants in tonight’s Elimination Chamber match, King Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler is looking confident with Queen Madison next to him and Ryback standing menacingly behind. JB asks Dolph whether he has any tactics in mind heading into tonight’s match, reminding him that Ryback cannot be a factor. Dolph: “As usual JB, you have missed the point entirely. I have not hired Ryback to win me matches, I have hired him to watch my back. As the King of the KWF I have a target on me, and after I win tonight’s Elimination Chamber, that target will be even bigger. My tactics for tonight are simple. I’ll knock off a former Olympian, I’ll knock off the guy who claims to be best in the world and hell, I’ll even eliminate that classless moron Panther. At the end of the night I will be booking my spot at WrestleMania. When I won the King of the Ring, I had to win three matches on the same night, including beating Panther along the way, so I have already proven how capable I am in this scenario. If you want to doubt the King, then take it up with him (pointing to Ryback).” Dolph and Madison exit, while Ryback squares up to a frightened JB, before snorting and saying “Feed… Me… More!”
We come back into the arena as ♫Alberto Del Rio’s music♫ «< click to play) hits, and the KWF’s newest faction head out in their newly acquired mini-van. Ricardo Rodriguez introduces the Hardcore Champion as JR airs his disgust at the way LAX just attacked Mick Foley backstage. “What was the purpose of that?” Regal: “Well with no Edge about, I think this group sensed their opportunity to take control. Plus, I seem to remember a couple of months ago, Foley dismissed Del Rio’s chances in the Hardcore Division. Well, now the Hardcore Champion looks untouchable.” JR: “Only because he’s surrounded himself with allies to do his dirty work for him, and look at this, he’s bringing them to the ring with him.” The rest of LAX (Homicide, Hernandez, Rey Mysterio, Melina, Konnan and even Ricardo Rodriguez) come down with Del Rio and surround the squared circle, all getting weapons from under and around the ring. JR: “What chance does Sheamus have here?”
♫It’s a shame that they lost their head, a careless man could win up dead!♫ «< click to play). The crowd cheer as Sheamus enters on stage and JR bursts out: “Well that’s how you give yourself a chance!” as Sheamus enters with a trash can full of goodies. There’s kendo sticks, two-by-fours, baseball bats wrapped in barbed wire, street signs and more. Regal: “Del Rio bought the muscle, Sheamus brings the sword, to quote a certain renegade.” Sheamus puts the trash can down and pulls out two kendo sticks, smacking Hernandez with one as he runs past and slides into the ring, before running at Del Rio, who exits on the far side. Sheamus is all fired up as the referee starts the match.
Alberto Del Rio w/ LAX vs. Sheamus – Hardcore match for the Hardcore Championship
Sheamus is in the ring by himself as Del Rio gives final instructions to his fellow LAX members. They then begin to surround the ring again, with Homicide, Hernandez, Mysterio and Del Rio each getting on an apron. Sheamus looks around and still has the stick in hand. He goes to hit Homicide, who drops off the apron and taunts, as Mysterio gets in on the other side. Sheamus turns and smacks Rey across the head, and then tries to club Hernandez again, but SuperMex catches the stick and holds onto it, allowing Del Rio to come in and take Sheamus down with a chop block. Del Rio tells Hernandez to get out now that he has control. JR: “So it seems the Champion is happy enough to work by himself as long as he is on top of things. Rest assured that as soon as Sheamus fights back, he’ll call on his cronies again.” Regal: “And why not? These are Hardcore rules after all.” Del Rio works over Sheamus for a while without using weapons. He applies pressure on the right arm with stomps, before throwing Sheamus into the corner and hitting a running enziguiri. He covers but Sheamus powers out at Two. The rest of LAX continue to stalk the outside of the ring, and are smiling from ear to ear as they watch their leader control this match.
Del Rio picks Sheamus up and throws him against the ropes. He goes for a right hook on the rebound, but Sheamus ducks and baseball slides to the outside of the ring, before hitting a Brogue Kick on Konnan! He grabs the filled trash can with one hand and pulls a two-by-four out with the other, striking Homicide with it before throwing everything over the top rope and into the ring. He slides back in and jabs Del Rio in the gut with the two-by-four. Mysterio and Hernandez get back up on the apron, but they’re wary of entering as Sheamus still has the two-by-four in hand and a psychotic look in his eyes. JR: “Sheamus is determined not to be taken down by this pack of wild dogs, and is doing one hell of a job of staying in this match!” Now the Irishman is in charge as he has all the weapons at his disposal. He hits Del Rio across the back several more times with the two-by-four, before dropping it and pulling out the trash can lid. He smacks the Mexican Aristocrat over the head with it numerous times. He raises the severely dented metal in the air and shouts “Fella!!!” The fans cheer him as he continues to keep the rest of LAX out of the ring by always having a weapon in hand.
Del Rio tries to recover in the corner and races at Sheamus, but gets caught and put down with an Irish Curse backbreaker. He pins but gets only Two. Sheamus is motoring, but while he was pinning Del Rio, Mysterio entered the ring to break the count. As Del Rio kicked out without his aid, Mysterio instead grabbed the weapons and threw them back to the outside. JR: “Now for God’s sake. This is just ridiculous. What kind of a man is Del Rio anyway? LAX have prided themselves on acting alone during their matches before tonight. Does he realize that he could never beat Sheamus without such back-up?” Regal: “Why risk it? His Title is on the line here. If you can use your teammates then why not do it? It would be stupid not to.” Del Rio is able to get back on top as Sheamus slides to the outside again, but gets jumped by LAX. They use the weapons to beat him down, before rolling him back in to Del Rio. He pins, but Sheamus shows guts and kicks out. Del Rio is getting frustrated and calls on his faction to join him in the ring.
They do, and now Sheamus is on his knees, looking around at the men surrounding him. Melina is on the outside screaming with her usual ear-piercing loudness. JR: “Just stay down Sheamus, live to fight another day.” Sheamus wonders what he’s supposed to do, but then, the crowd make some noise as we see that heading down the ramp come Drew McIntyre, Styler, Mason Ryan, Rob Terry and Layla! JR: “What? What are the British Invasion doing here?” Regal: “I genuinely have no idea.” The Brits get in the ring and start to attack their Mexican counterparts. McIntyre is after Konnan, Styler is beating down Mysterio, Ryan has thrown Homicide over the top rope, Terry is tussling with Hernandez and Layla is scrapping with Melina on the outside. JR: “They’re attacking LAX! I have no idea why, but the British Invasion is attacking LAX!” Regal: “Good for them! It’s about time someone stood up to this shower, and as usual it’s the Brits!” JR: “Hang on, you’ve been defending LAX this entire match.” Regal: “You’re a dimwit JR, I haven’t the faintest clue what you’re talking about.” Del Rio cannot believe what is happening, and doesn’t notice that Sheamus is up behind him, beating his chest.Ricardo Rodriguez tries to warn the Champ, but as Del Rio turns around, *BAM!* Brogue Kick! Sheamus covers and hooks the leg, getting One, Two and Three!
Winner and New KWF Hardcore Champion: Sheamus.
The inter-faction brawl continues on the outside of the ring as Sheamus is handed the Title he lost only a month ago and raises it above his head. He looks at the clashes outside and seems just as surprised and confused as everyone else. JR: “I don’t think this was the British helping out the Irish, I think this was something personal. Remember, Wade Barrett and Alberto Del Rio have already had some moments of animosity, well it looks like we have a good old fashioned faction-war on our hands.” Regal: “Oh goody, I do like a good faction-war!” Sheamus leaves his Belt with Justin Roberts, before joining the Brits to get himself some more of LAX. The fans cheer as LAX are forced to retreat and screech away in their mini-van, making sure that they’d get their leader Del Rio to safety.
We are backstage once again with JB, who is ready to interview another participant in tonight’s Elimination Chamber match, Panther. He asks the Black Cat what he makes of King Dolph’s declaration that he aims to eliminate him tonight. Panther: “That’s very Dolph. He’s facing five guys in there, but all he can think of is me. If he wants to do that then good luck to him, I’ve got no problem putting him down and then moving on to the others, but I can’t speak for the likes of Joe and Brock, who could take advantage of that single mindedness and eliminate him themselves. As I said a couple of weeks ago, my first aim is to outlast Dolph, but that won’t stop me trying to take everyone in that Chamber down. I’ve come a long way since this company began, and now I’m just one win away from the main event at WrestleMania.” JB asks him if he really thinks he can win. Panther answers: “I know I’m very much the underdog, or under-cat if you want to get technical, but I have shown in recent weeks that I have moved up a level. I’ve been winning matches, hitting anyone who moved with the Sword of Omens, and tonight I feel like I’ve got nothing to lose. No-one expects me to win, and so it’s up to me to go out there and surprise everyone.” JB thanks Panther for his time and wishes him luck as he hands it back to ringside.
♫Music hits♫ «< click to play) and the crowd boo as we watch the entrance of The Beautiful People. JR and Regal remind us of the events that have occurred in recent weeks. JR: “The Beautiful People have run rampant all over the KWF Chicks. They’ve applied the paper-bag treatment on Beth Phoenix, Eve Torres, Mickie James – and tonight they want to do it to AJ Lee.” Regal: “Jim this is Women’s wrestling at it’s very best. Angelina and Velvet were geniuses when they took out Kaitlyn prior to the Chick Rumble match and so it’s meant that even with Mickie James in her corner, AJ’s been pretty much on her own in her trials with The Beautiful People. Now, the Chickbusters versus The Beautiful People is a rivalry that has gone back almost two years here in the KWF. Tonight, AJ’s on her own again and I don’t believe she’ll pull off a miracle.”
Angelina Love w/ Velvet Sky vs. AJ Lee – Women’s Title
The match gets underway and Lee instantly locks her eyes on Velvet Sky, knowing full well that she has to watch her back to ensure that any Velvet interference does minimal damage to her Title chances. Angelina looks confident as the two lock up and Lee strikes quickly with right hands. She decks Love to the canvas with a clothesline and goes for a quick cover. Gets One, gets a half, but Love kicks out. AJ scraps right off the bat, trying to ugly Angelina’s beautiful face and Regal besmirches as Lee trips Love face-first into the bottom turnbuckle: “That’s not very nice.” JR: “Aww AJ’s all fired up here. She took a Botox Injection trying to save Mickie James on Wednesday night and now she’s venting all her anger after what Love and Sky have put her and Kaitlyn through.”
AJ runs to the opposite corner and sets to storm toward Love. However, Velvet climbs the apron and this distracts the referee. AJ goes over to Sky and set to swing for her, but the ref stops her and tells her to focus on the match. This momentary distraction allows Love to get back to her feet and as AJ starts at her again, Love picks her up and drops her with a backbreaker. She covers, hooking the leg, One, Two – but Lee kicks out. The tides have turned now and the Champ has Lee under control. Angelina slows down the match and keeps AJ grounded, often going for pin-falls, but the impressively resilient AJ continues kicking out.
JR: “Deep down I believe there is respect between these women. They’re covering often and that tells me that they know that they have to keep the pressure on. Love needs to make sure AJ keeps exerting energy. The more she kicks out, the less energy she has later on in the contest – and that works in favor of the Champion.” Regal: “Yes and while I doubt there’s any underlying respect there, I do agree that this notion works both ways. Whenever AJ is on top she covers often because she’s trying to catch Love off-guard. She’s trying to get the match over with because she knows that the longer it goes on, the tougher it is for her because one Velvet Sky will undoubtedly get involved.”
A fascinating contest goes back and forth with Love often in control. AJ is a firecracker though and she has moments where she mounts comebacks, but that’s when Velvet does her bit. Tripping AJ, distracting the referee or even consoling Angelina. Regal: “It’s all part of the game played by The Beautiful People and while the spunky challenger can try as hard as she can, The Beautiful People are simply too much to handle.” JR: “It’s so harsh and there’s little that can be done about it. We have no General Manager on the show, no one in charge now that Foley’s down and the referee is losing control of this match. It may as well be a handicap contest!” And on the back of another distraction from Velvet, Angelina is able to measure Lee for a Botox Injection and sadly for the fans, this one is over.
Winner and Still KWF Women’s Champion: Angelina Love.
Velvet Sky brings in the Women’s Championship and the crowd boo like hell as The Beautiful People pose for the cameras. The comms mention that this is the most vocal disliking that TBP have gotten from an audience and JR says that he believes it’s because everyone knew from the get-go what was going to happen here: “Angelina and Velvet cheat. They’re cheaters and even after their squabble after Velvet was paper-bagged on Turmoil a couple of weeks back, these two harlots are still on the same page, they’re still dominating and no, God no, what’s the point of this?!!!” says JR as we watch Velvet hold AJ in place and Angelina administers the paper-bag treatment. The audience boo some more and while there are a couple of wolf-whistles from male members of the crowd, JR finishes by saying that AJ Lee never really had a chance under these circumstances.
We are with JB again as he is now set to interview Samoa Joe. He starts by asking Joe how good it felt to beat Jeff Jarrett this past Wednesday to qualify for tonight’s Elimination Chamber match. Joe: “Me and Jeff go back a long way, and I’m not gonna lie, it felt good to put his ass down again. But that was just one part of the job. If I don’t win tonight then that W means nothing. Three years ago I was already booked in the main event at WrestleMania having won the very first KWF Royal Rumble. Since then I’ve had a pretty good run as Hardcore Champion, and came within inches of becoming KWF Champion against CM Punk last year. Now, as we head down the Road the WrestleMania, it comes down to the battle of the best, and that’s exactly what this Chamber match is. You have a seasoned vet like Kurt Angle, a brutal machine in Brock Lesnar, the Best in the World in CM Punk, two young up and comers in Dolph and Panther, and of course myself, the Samoan Submission Machine. I fully intend on making five men tap out tonight, and if they don’t, there’s always the Muscle Buster from the Nation of Violence that is, Samoa Joe.” Joe exits to warm up as JB thanks him for his time.
We come to a video package reminding us of the success that Christopher Daniels has had on TNA Wrestling House Shows in the past, and the recent history of the success Jack Evans has had in the Keystone Wrestling Federation. Evans made his debut in the Feast or Fired match back in September 2012 at KWF’s Casino Warfare pay-per-view. Slowly but surely, he went on to compete against a number of X-Division superstars and then, after being told to leave the ring because “mic-time should go to the Champ” by Konnan and then X-Champion Rey Mysterio, Evans went to ask Edge for a shot at the Gold and he lost in his first challenge because of interference from Konnan. Edge gave Evans another shot, strictly one-on-one at the Royal Rumble, and Evans was successful in becoming the new KWF X-Division Champion.
Before Rey Mysterio was Champ, it was Christopher Daniels who held the Belt and after losing the Title to Rey, Daniels decided to bide his time and went on to challenge for Tag Team Gold alongside Frankie Kazarian at the Royal Rumble. The two lost to Why So Serious and Kaz has since been healing wounds in a hospital bed. Daniels saw that the X-Title had changed hands again and this meant that he would now take his chance at cashing in on the rematch he never had, a chance at the X-Division Championship. Who will be the X-Division Champion going into KWF WrestleMania? We find out next Live right here at SuperBrawl!
Jack Evans vs. Christopher Daniels – X-Division Championship
The bell rings and the two lock up. Daniels goes behind and smiles arrogantly as he smacks the back of Evans’ head, once, twice and then he pulls him close to his chest to maintain a waistlock. Evans is super athletic though and he uses the hold to help elevate himself and he then uses the momentum to fling himself forward and Daniels flips forward over the back of Evans and toward the ropes. Evans sees Daniels over the middle rope and he tries to slam his foot in his face, but Daniels is resourceful as he ducks the contact and then uses the rope to catch Evans’ leg and hang him up. The Fallen Angel then grabs the Champion by his neck, turns him over and slams him down with a neckbreaker. He covers, gets One, gets Two – but no, only Two and this match continues.
Daniels maintains control, grounding Evans and ensuring that he can’t get to his feet to up the pace of the match. The comms remind us that Jack Evans was heavily beaten up by the Latin American eXchange a few weeks ago on Turmoil and the speculation was that he may not be at a hundred percent for this match. JR: “Evans seemed okay on Turmoil during his and Daniels coming together this past week, but when it comes to match fitness and capability, I’m not sure Evans knows how to defend a Championship on the back of an injury.”
Regal: “More to the point Jim, what we can be sure of is that Christopher Daniels certainly knows how to win a Championship on the back of an injured opponent and Daniels is doing just that. Evans is going to have to pull off something special if he’s going to overcome The Fallen Angel. Daniels is a master at his trade, an X-Division pioneer. I think he’s got Evans’ number tonight.” The contest goes on and the crowd are excited throughout. Daniels drops Evans with an STO, covers for One, Two – kick out by Evans. Evans comes back with a rolling wheel kick, and that sends Daniels through the ropes and down to ringside. Evans then goes high risk, connecting with Daniels down by the announcers’ table with a corkscrew moonsault, springboarding from off the top rope.
JR: “Good God almighty! What an incredible move!” Regal: “Fantastic Jim, but it’s a good way to break a neck I’ll tell you that much. Jesus!” Evans gets up and gets Daniels back in the ring. He hooks the leg for a cover; One! Two! – but no, foot on the rope, and Daniels escapes for now. The comms tell of how impressive Evans is, showing no fear or nerves against a man with the experience of Daniels. The match goes on and Daniels comes back to drop Evans with a Complete Shot. He then follows that up with the Koji Clutch and now Evans is in trouble, grounded and locked in a submission in the middle of the ring. He scraps as much as he can to get to the bottom rope and with one final cheer from the fans he eventually makes it. Daniels doesn’t release the hold however, and the referee counts One, Two, Three, Four – and yells at Daniels let go of the hold.
Daniels gets up to mouth off to the referee. He threatens to hit him, but the ref threatens a Disqualification. Daniels starts toward Evans again, who’s picked himself up by the corner. Evans steps out fighting though, a left roundhouse kick to Daniels’ shoulder. A right kick to his gut. A left kick to his gut, a right kick to the head. Faster and faster Evans keeps kicking at Daniels and the audience’ volume rises as the Champ builds momentum. Evans goes against the ropes and comes back, but Daniels counters with a tilt-o-whirl backbreaker! A crunching move, but Daniels holds onto it. He lifts Evans and drops him on his back again. Then he lifts him and drops him with a version of the sidewalk slam. The crowd boo as Daniels then stands up to stamp his foot on Evans’ face. He then waves his arms to signal “That’s it” before dragging Evans to position him by the corner.
Daniels sets up for BME, but as he sets to execute, Evans gets back to his feet. Daniels lands on his feet as well but *WHAM* back-flip dropkick! Daniels goes down like he’s been hit with a shotgun to the face. The crowd go wild as Evans scrambles over Daniels’ body to cover. ‘One!’ count the crowd, ‘Two!’ – but ohh, Daniels kicks out. Evans next heads to the ring apron. He jumps to springboard off as Daniels gets to his feet, and Evans tries to land a huge Springboard Tornado Kick – but no dice as Daniels ducks. Evans manages to land on his feet and he instantly goes against the far ropes. When he comes back he tries for a Front Flip Kick – but Daniels catches him and drops him with Blue Thunder! That’s an instant pinning predicament, One! Two! – but Evans kicks out!
The crowd cheer and applaud the action, but then boo as Daniels signals for the Angels Wings. He picks Evans up, but the Champ counters by stepping off Daniels’ thigh and up on his shoulders. He flips back off Daniels and then *WHAM* a Front Flip Kick connects this time and Daniels goes down like a ton of bricks. Evans gets up and now he’s the one that drags Daniels toward the corner. JR: “What’s he doing here?” Evans goes and bounces off the bottom turnbuckle, bounces off the middle turnbuckle, then bounces off the top turnbuckle to flip backward and Jack Evans pulls off the Corkscrew 630! Regal: “What the f*BLEEP*” JR: “Evans pulls off the 630! A Corkscrew 630! Oh my God! And he’s got the cover!” ‘One!’ count the crowd along with the ref, ‘Two!’ as Regal shouts over the audience: “Jim that was bloody incredible! How on earth is that even possible?!!” And ‘Three!’ Jack Evans retains!
Winner and Still KWF X-Division Champion: Jack Evans.
♫Evans’ music hits♫ «< click to play) and the audience go absolutely berserk, chanting ‘That was awesome’ as Evans gets handed his X-Division Title. JR: “William that was out of this world. A Corkscrew 630 – and it was in BME fashion! A concept right out of Christopher Daniels’ playbook!” Regal: “Jim that was magnificent. I said earlier that Mister Evans would have to pull off something special to win this, and I’ll be the first to hold my hands up and say that what Evans just done there was simply brilliant. You talk about super-heroes and out-of-this-world athletes that can put on a show and take that torch, take the spotlight and take the X-Division to even higher heights, well Jim, Jack Evans has just put his name on the map. To defeat Christopher Daniels with what a BM… C630?! Wow, that was beyond words, beyond words.” Evans has his hand raised and he gets a standing ovation as he performs handstands and front flips for the audience.
JB is back for another interview, and it’s with the Olympic Gold medalist Kurt Angle. Before moving on to Chamber talk, JB asks Kurt about the recent announcement that Wrestling may be getting taken out of the Olympic Games in the future. Angle: “It’s a travesty. As I’m sure you can guess, I love Olympic wrestling. It was one of the original Olympic sports, and to think it might not be a part of future Games makes me sick to my stomach. People say it’s not longer relevant? Tell that to Scott Coleman, Sharif Sharifov or Artur Taymazov. I’m campaigning to keep it alive, and…” Angle is interrupted as Brock Lesnar walks onto the scene. He is smirking and mocks Angle, and Olympic wrestling, saying that Mixed Martial Arts is the future of fighting, and makes Olympic wrestling look like ballet. Angle squares up to him and says that Brock should keep his mouth shut, just in case Angle eliminates him tonight, making him look like even more of a fool. Brock ignores him and asks JB why he was too afraid to interview him. “Did you think I was too scary to be in the presence of? Did you think I’d F5 you for no reason? Well you’re probably right, I would have.” Angle steps in front of Brock again and tells him to save his trash talking. Lesnar looks serious now and tells Angle: “Friendly word of advice. Everyone says that the Elimination Chamber is the most devastating structure in wrestling, well they’re wrong. I am. See you out there.” Lesnar exits, leaving Angle seething.
We come to a video reminder of the return of Robert Roode, James Storm and Gail Kim as Beer Money Incorporated. While Gail wrestled in the Chicks division, Roode and Storm were off for well over a year after Roode had been injured at the hands of The Dudleys. Now they have returned to earn themselves a shot at the KWF World Tag Team Championships and the opportunity to carry the Gold into KWF WrestleMania. They defeated The Welsh Dragons in a number one contenders match and while avoiding a trap laid out by reigning Champions Why So Serious, Roode and Storm know that this upcoming match will be a true test of their form and cohesiveness.
♫Why So Serious’ music♫ «< click to play) hits and the crowd are on their feet for the entrance of KWF’s World Tag Team Champions. Remy ‘Gambit’ LeBeau and Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy enter alongside their respective other halves Barbie ‘Kelly Kelly’ Blank and Christy ‘Harley Quinn’ Hemme. Regal: “For God sake, don’t forget Chris ‘Abyss’ Park Jim. Dear dear dear, who do these freaks think they are?” JR: “Aaw William, I wouldn’t call them that if I were you. Why So Serious are one of the top groups in all of wrestling and the audience love’m. And it doesn’t look like Abyss is entering with them tonight.” Regal: “Perhaps he’s under the ring, you know, in the abyss? (Under his breath) Ridiculous.”
Beer Money enter to a huge ovation as well and the comms wonder who will come out on top here in terms of support from the fans. JR: “I think Beer Money’s return has everyone hoping that they win the Tag Titles, but Why So Serious have a very strong fan base William.” Regal: “Yeah that’s true Jim, but at the very same time, Why So Serious have a nonchalant attitude about things and if they lose this match they’ll probably shrug it off as if they don’t care.” JR: “I see your point William, but I think Gambit and The Joker especially take pride in their Tag Title dominance. Since their return to the KWF we haven’t seen their circus-like shenanigans of the past and I believe that’s because of the Tag Gold.” Regal: “Let’s hope they retain then. If they lose, it could be hell to pay for everyone.”
Gambit & Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy w/ Kelly Kelly & Christy ‘Harley Quinn’ Hemme vs. Beer Money w/ Gail Kim – KWF World Tag Team Championships
The bell rings and the match gets underway with The Joker starting off against the ‘Cowboy’ James Storm. Storm goes to the ropes, reaches out toward Gail Kim and she hands him his beer. He takes a swig and bounces as he psyches himself up to tie up with his opponent. He instantly grabs Jeff’s arm and wrenches it. Twists under and wrenches again. However, Joker flips forward out of it, slamming his own back into the canvas and pulling Storm down with use of his own arm as bait. This leads to a scrappy pinning predicament where the ref goes down to count, but Storm kicks out right away. Joker and Storm go back and forth after the original lock-up, with Hardy initially coming out on top, dropping Storm to his belly and then paint-brushing the back of his head. Joker laughs as Storm gets up and a tag is made to Gambit.
Gambit comes in and gives Storm a second to get up. He eyeballs him and then goes over to the ropes where he leans through to take a kiss from Kelly Kelly. The crowd chuckle as Storm sets to go have another swig of beer, but Roode calls him over for a pep talk. Roode slaps his partner on the chest and through the camera mic we can hear what he’s saying: “It’s not about the beer or the girls tonight. It’s about the money! Come on, focus! It’s our time now, it’s our time!” The crowd cheer as Storm turns his attentions back toward Gambit. The two lock up and Storm gets him in a side headlock. Gambit pushes him against the ropes and then gets knocked down with a shoulder barge upon Storm’s return. Storm runs against the ropes again. As he comes back, Gambit turns to his belly. Storm skips over him and goes against the opposite ropes. When he comes back, Gambit’s on one knee and he smashes Storm under his chin with a hard uppercut. He then stands to jump in one motion to land a leg lariat on his opponent. Storm may be in trouble as Gambit covers, gets One, gets Two – but Robert Roode comes in, Storm kicking out at the very same time.
Roode cheers on his partner as Gambit tags in The Joker who comes in to take a few shots at Storm before sending him toward the corner. He runs toward him, ducks a clothesline and steps up the turnbuckles to flip backward for Whisper in the Wind, but Storm dives out the way and Hardy hits nothing but canvas. He laughs as he crawls on his stomach, and we see Storm crawling toward his corner as well. Storm makes the hot tag to Roode, but Joker doesn’t quite make it. Roode comes in to stop him from tagging Gambit, but as he drags Hardy by his leg, Gambit comes in illegally and *BAM* he levels Roode with Mardi-Gras! JR: “Good God almighty! Gambit’s rendition of Sweet Chin Music, so sudden and so much impact. This match could be over!” Regal: “Yes but look Jim, that pillock’s not going for a cover.” The Joker doesn’t cover and instead he gets up to boot Roode in the gut a few times, battering him while the ref’s back’s turned and he gets Gambit out of the ring.
The ref then sees how harshly Joker has pounced on Roode and he pulls him away, telling him off. Joker laughs and backs up to tag Gambit. Roode is back by his corner and Storm tags in. He sets to head straight for Gambit, but he’s not there. Gambit’s back in his corner, standing by The Joker and instead of either of them being in the ring, Harley Quinn’s the one standing ready to compete. The referee notices just as Storm does and he tells Christy to get out of the ring. She doesn’t move and just stands there, smiling, staring a hole through Storm. Storm then backs off toward his corner. Roode is on his knees, hurt on the apron, but he yells in at Storm: “What’s the matter with you?” Storm: “She’s freakin’ me out man! There’s no girls like that in Tennessee. I don’t know how to handle it.” Roode: Just go past her and get to the freaks in the corner!” Storm reaches to Gail for a swig of his beer again and then musters up the liquid courage to start toward Hemme, but the ref stops him. The ref then asks Gambit to come back in and compete, so Joker calls Harley over. She tags Gambit, who doesn’t get in from the apron and he just stands there and high-fives (tags) The Joker, who doesn’t get in either. Joker reaches below him to ringside and he tags Kelly. She then kneels by the apron and we see a hand come out from under the ring – and Kelly tags Abyss.
The crowd laugh as Regal says: “This is ridiculous. Would someone get on with an actual wrestling match please?!” Storm becomes very angry and Roode then drops from the apron to look under the ring, but there’s no one there. Storm demands that the ref sort this out and again the ref tells Gambit to get in the ring. The Cajun shrugs his shoulders and says: “I’m not legal homme.” And Joker laughs, “Haha, he wouldn’t be encouraging us to cheat would he?” but then finally Gambit steps back into the squared circle. From the ramp side of the ring, Abyss sticks a hand out and Christy tags him. She then tags Gambit and Gambit says: “There, now I’m legal.” The crowd laugh, but Storm comes over full speed to knock Gambit down with a double-axe clothesline. He kicks him in the gut and then drags him toward his corner.
Bobby Roode is back by his corner and he tags in and now it looks like Beer Money can finally get down to business. They keep Gambit cornered for the moment as Roode tags out and then back in again. JR: “Outstanding tag team work right there. Kids watching at home, that’s how it’s done.” As Beer Money complete a double suplex, we see them shake off their hands and perform their unified taunt “Beer!” “Moneyyyyy!” However, the Why So Serious girls take this as their cue to get in the ring and as Roode and Storm turn around, the girls chant: “Kelly!” “Harleyyyy!” We see a shot at ringside where William Regal is literally bouncing his head off the announcers table: “Flipping hell.” The crowd laugh some more, but now the referee’s had enough and he sends the Why So Serious girls from the ring. They nod and accept, saying that they’ll stay out of the ring, but the ref then exits to ringside and says: “No! Not just out of the ring, away from here completely, now go!” The Joker comes over to protest, but the ref says that he’ll Disqualify Why So Serious if the girls don’t leave – and Abyss has to leave too.
Kelly and Christy lift the ring apron and Abyss comes out, but then they protest Gail Kim being at ringside and so, to be fair, the ref tells Beer Money that Gail has to leave as well. JR: “It’s pandemonium.” Regal: “It’s like trying to get a bunch of rowdy girls and their ugly friend to leave a nightclub at three in the morning is what it is.” JR: “JR what would you know about that William?” Regal: “Oh I’ve had my nights out under the Blackpool Tower believe you me.” Eventually Kelly, Christy, Abyss and Gail Kim all exit up the ramp. However, as the referee shepherds them all away, he’s unbeknownst to what’s happening in the ring. “It’s The Dudleys!” yelps JR as Bubba and Devon come from around the timekeeper’s corner. They swarm the ring and Bubba attacks Gambit from behind, lifting him atop his shoulders in position for an Electric Chair and Devon comes flying in from off the top turnbuckle to clothesline him off and complete the Deadly Device.
As Joker comes in to try make the save, Bubba counters him, and again the Dudleys double-team, dropping The Joker with a 3D! JR: “For Gods sakes, what is the meaning of this?! What are The Dudleys doing here?!” Regal: “Well while Edge isn’t on the show and Mick Foley’s taken out, we’ve seen nothing but chaos here at SuperBrawl Jim. The referee to his credit tried to get some kind of order, but The Dudley Boys have just marked their territory. Gambit and The Joker took their Tag Titles and now it’s redemption for The Dudleys!” We watch as the legal James Storm looks toward Roode and Roode simply eyeballs Bubba and Devon as they exit. Storm dives over The Joker’s body and Roode yells to call in the ref. He comes in and counts Three as both Gambit and The Joker are left laid out.
Winners and New KWF Tag Team Champions of the World: James Storm and Robert Roode, Beer Money.
♫Beer Money’s music♫ «< click to play) hits, but any celebrations are cut short as we see Kelly, Christy and Abyss march back down the ramp. Roode and Storm exit to ringside and the ref raises an arm each as he hands them their newly won Tag Team Titles. Kelly, Christy and Abyss crawl into the ring to check on Gambit and Joker and replays show that Bubba and Devon have gotten well out of dodge, climbing over the barricade and disappearing through the crowd. The fans are despondent. They applaud Beer Money’s win, but even Roode and Storm seem rattled by the manner in which they won. They look back in the ring and JR says: “It seems like Beer Money may actually feel sorry for Why So Serious.”
Regal: “Don’t be ridiculous Jim. This is a cut-throat business and people get screwed over all the time. All of a sudden you’re going to tell me that we’re supposed to feel sorry for Why So Serious?! They’re a bunch of clowns! They were playing Beer Money all throughout this match and they were cheating via distractions and fake blimmin’ tags. They deserve to finally get put in their place and I for one am glad The Dudleys have done it.” JR: “Aww well William, it was a cowardly move from The Dudleys, attacking from behind knowing full well that they couldn’t get the job done when they faced Gambit and Joker in the past. Now they cost them the Gold when this match was none of their damn business. Oh you mentioned earlier that if Why So Serious lost this match, there’d be hell to pay. Well, let’s hold on to our hats, Gambit and Joker will want those Belts back come WrestleMania – and The Dudleys are sure to have hell to pay indeed.” The camera zooms in on Why So Serious leader, The Joker… and he’s not laughing anymore.
JB is standing by for his final interview of the night, with former KWF World Champion CM Punk. He starts by asking him if he is ready despite only having four days to prepare after qualifying on Wednesday by beating Kevin Nash. Punk: “I’m more than ready JB. That was a pretty tough match against a brute like Nash, but I came through it and tonight, tonight is my last chance to put myself in the main event of WrestleMania. Make no mistake about it though, I know how tough it’s going to be. Samoa Joe is incredible, and it took everything I had to put him away last year. Then you’ve got my hero, Kurt Angle. We had some incredible matches last year as well, and while I’m looking forward to facing him again, the fact it’s in a Chamber with four other superstars complicates matters. King Dolph is like a cockroach that you just can’t put down, and he has that devastating Zig-Zag from nowhere. Panther has been looking very sharp recently, and this is his big chance to show he’s main event material. He could well be a dark horse, or cat, or whatever. Then of course there’s Big Bad Brock Lesnar. I know people may not like him, but there’s no denying he can destroy anyone when he’s on his game. Whatever happens, it should be one hell of a match.” JB: “That’s all very good Punk, but what about you? What sets you apart from your opponents tonight?” Punk just smiles and says “Me JB? I’m the Best in the World, remember?” He walks off as Borash finishes: “Good luck.”
We come to a video package showing us the career turnabout of The Absolute Lashley. We’re reminded of his debut; WrestleMania 2011 where Bobby Lashley emerged as The Absolute One, saving The UnderTaker from defeat against Kurt Angle. It turned out that Lashley was hand-picked by the Deadman as his apprentice, but as time went on, Taker came to his conclusion that Lashley was not worthy of being in line to take the Dark Side’s throne. Taker abused Lashley, tortured him and by Angle versus Taker on Turmoil two weeks ago, it is now clear that The Absolute Lashley has had enough of the controlling power of The UnderTaker. Lashley wasn’t going to take it anymore and Paul Bearer laid out a challenge on his behalf, a challenge that The UnderTaker declined.
The following week, just this past Wednesday, The Icon Sting called out Taker and he questioned the integrity of the Lord of Darkness. He goaded Taker into accepting Lashley’s challenge, but after some negotiations the following stipulations were put in place. Tonight at SuperBrawl there is to be a match; The Icon Sting against The Masked Demon Kane. If Sting wins then Lashley gets his one-on-one match versus The UnderTaker at WrestleMania. If Kane wins, then at Mania the Deadman’s streak will be on the line by way of a tag team match; The Brothers of Destruction versus The Absolute Lashley and the man they call Sting.
We come to ringside where the arena lights darken and we hear a craze of lightning come across the titantron. It’s eerily familiar and as the lightning continues, we see that the images it’s showing us are those of Sting. ♫Music hits♫ «< click to play) and a child’s voice speaks over this moment…
‘People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something happens so bad that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can’t rest. In a case where a soul is taken, only one can rise to put the wrong things right. We look to the skies for a vindicator. Someone to strike fear into the black hearts of the same men who created him; The Absolute. Against the pit of evil comes a dark warrior. The purveyor of good and a man on a mission of justice. This is Sting.’…
The thunder soon simmers down and out steps Sting onto the stage and the crowd go wild at the realization of witnessing the Stinger compete here tonight at SuperBrawl. JR: “Aww there’s a chill in the air and a big fight feel to this one William.” Regal: “Indeed Jim. A few moments ago we saw a typically bizarre Why So Serious match, and The Joker for once wasn’t laughing at the end of that one. But here’s where things get really serious and I’ll tell you this, UnderTaker trusts only one man, and that’s his brother Kane. Sting has little to no affiliations with Lashley what-so-ever, and I think that’s going to work in Taker’s favor.” JR: “There’s no arguing your assumptions William, but remember, Sting has been known to stick his neck on the line for the greater good throughout his entire career. He’s always sacrificed himself and there’s no thinking in his mind I believe, that he’ll take this match at half mast. Stinger’s in it to win it and that says a lot about The Absolute Lashley.”
Regal: “What are you getting at Jim? The greater good? What good is there in the Beast?!” JR: “Exactly, we don’t know and by Lashley’s actions under the Dark Side, we’ve seen him do some awful things. But Sting has been the only one to try and talk to him, he’s been the only one that’s looked him in the eyes and tried to see Bobby Lashley’s soul. It’s because of that, the belief in good that this match has come about tonight. And by God, one way or another we will see Lashley and Taker on opposite sides of the ring at WrestleMania.” Sting stands in the ring after having removed his trench coat. He’s in his traditional black singlet with white Scorpions on either side of his body. The arena lights fade to black. The stage-lights turn blood-red and ♫music hits♫ «< click to play) and out comes Kane. Regal: “The Big Red Monster is as menacing and as scary as he was on his WWF debut way back when he cost UnderTaker the Hell in a Cell match against Shawn Michaels in ’97.” JR: “This Kane has always been the scariest. He renewed his original character here in the KWF and the presence and the fear of Satan cannot be denied through Kane. Aww, ladies and gentlemen, we’re about set for a slobberknocker.”
Sting vs. Kane
Sting looks confident as the bell rings and Kane starts toward The Icon. Sting doesn’t back down and he swings a right hand hard into the mask of Kane. Kane takes the hit, stands there, tilts his head and he sets to uppercut Sting, but Sting evades contact and he grabs Kane’s striking arm. The audience chant Sting’s name and we watch as he kicks the back of Kane’s leg and brings him down to a knee while maintaining grip of the arm. Kane is strong though and he stands up to instantly clothesline Sting down with his free arm. Kane covers for One, Two – but a quick kick-out and the match goes on. The comms remind us that there is no interference allowed from The UnderTaker or The Absolute Lashley. If there is a case where this happens, the match will result in a Disqualification.
As the contest goes on we can see that Sting’s strategy is to chop Kane down limb by limb. He targets Kane’s right arm and right leg early on, but then he moves on to his left leg. Regal: “It’s quite fascinating to see Jim. It’s not like Sting’s going to weaken the legs so much that he can think about a Deathlock, but he’s trying his mightiest I’ll give him that.” JR: “Aww I wouldn’t count Sting out at all William. No one would expect for him to try and make Kane tap out, but perhaps that’s what he’s trying to do and Kane himself wouldn’t expect it.” We watch as the match spills to ringside and here’s where Kane takes control. He performs UnderTaker’s snake-eyes over the barricade. Kane then rams The Icon kidney first into the ring apron before finally rolling him into the ring. He slides in as well, gets One on the count, gets Two – but Sting kicks out.
Regal: “Have you noticed the amount of pins Kane is going for Jim? D’you think that’s direct guidance from The UnderTaker? I assume he’s told his brother that it’s not about inflicting pain tonight, it’s about winning the match.” JR: “Quite possibly. Kane’s been silent throughout his KWF career, often the bearer of pain on behalf of his brother. With what’s on the line here, there’s no doubt that Kane is in this match to not only inflict hell fire, but the Big Red Monster certainly wants to win this one.” We watch as Kane exits the ring and walks along the apron to start climbing. He sets to measure for his version of Old School, his old flying clothesline from off the top rope. However, Sting is coherent and he gets to the corner to stop the move from happening and he manages to knock Kane off balance.
Sting climbs to the middle turnbuckle and the fans count along as he administers the Ten-punch. He has Kane exactly where he wants him and using his experience and balance, Sting climbs to the very top turnbuckle with Kane in superplex position and with all his might, The Icon performs the move – sending Kane all the way down to the canvas! Both men are down as the exerted energy from performing the superplex has sapped the energy from Sting. The crowd are on their feet as they cheer Sting on. He turns to his stomach. He crawls and he looks to put an arm on Kane for a cover, but he can’t, because Kane sits up! JR: “Oh my God.” Regal: “Oh Jesus, this isn’t good. This isn’t good at all.” Kane gets to his feet and he stares down at Sting. Sting gets up groggy – and Kane uppercuts him down. It seems the end may be near for the Stinger, but wait, Sting takes the uppercut and he gets back up.
Regal: “What the hell?” Kane tilts his head and then smashes Sting with another uppercut, a left, a right and he then sends Sting against the ropes and when he comes back he drops him with a tilt-o-whirl slam. Kane gets to his feet – but so does Sting! Regal: “Jim what’s going on?” JR: “This is Sting! My God, after all these years, that man has still got the heart, the urge to keep getting up and how ironic that it’s almost like he has the very resilience of a deadman. By God, the purveyor of all that is good, come on Sting, William this arena is rumbling to the core!” The fans are going wild as Sting yells out a heroic “Whooooo”, but it has no ounce of an effect on Kane. The Masked Demon goes at Sting again and Sting takes the punishment. A sidewalk slam, a spinebuster and by God, a Chokeslam from hell! Sting’s down, The Icon is down and this has to be over. Kane makes the cover for One! Two! – and Thr-Noooo! JR: “Sting kicks out! Sting kicks out!” Regal: “I can’t believe what I’m seeing.”
JR: “William, The UnderTaker created The Absolute Lashley, he didn’t want to face him at Mania – but now it seems like there’s a certain inevitability about it all. Sting has every single person in this building on their feet and by God I’ll say it, I want to see Lashley versus Taker at WrestleMania!” Regal: “But look Jim, we cannot underestimate Kane, the Monster is at it again!” Kane picks Sting up. He lifts him and turns him over into position for a Tombstone. The comms fear that this will put an end to Sting – but Sting’s legs are kicking. He uses his weight and he forces himself over the back of Kane and there’s almost a collective stop in time. Almost as if we’re watching in slow motion as the fans’ cameras flash to capture the image of Sting falling down the back of Kane and simultaneously clutching his head to drop his opponent with a Scorpion DeathDrop! The crowd go absolutely berserk and Sting makes the cover! ‘One!’ count the crowd, ‘Two!’ and ‘Three!’
*Ding* *Ding-Ding* goes the bell and Justin Roberts announces, “Ladies and gentlemen, your winner of the match; Thee Iiiiiicon Sttttiiiiiinnnnnnnggggggg!” Just as Sting’s music is about to kick in, we hear a *BONG!* and the arena lights fade to black. We hear thunder and out on the stage, as the lights turn a little brighter, we see the emergence of The UnderTaker. The Deadman looks angry at his brother’s loss and the comms reiterate the fact that we will now see The UnderTaker put his streak on the line at WrestleMania – and it will be against his very own creation; The Absolute Lashley. UnderTaker stares down toward the ring as Sting gets to his feet. He sees Taker on stage and then Sting steps toward the ropes. He makes sure that he is looking The UnderTaker directly in the eyes – and then Sting’s eyes roll back, he performs the Dark Side cut-throat sign and the crowd gasp as The UnderTaker’s expression increases in anger. ♫Sting’s music♫ «< click to play) kicks in and the comms talk up how Lashley’s challenge to Taker is the biggest threat The Deadman has ever had to his streak. JR finishes: “What a victory by Sting, a huge victory and what an ending. Lashley’s coming for you UnderTaker, Lashley’s coming!”
We come to a video showing off the Elimination Chamber. The voiceover reminds us of the size and weight of the structure, and we see clips from Chambers gone by. We are then shown the best of the qualifying matches after the Chamber was announced. We hear Edge’s voice explaining that the winner of the Chamber match will earn a place in the KWF World Title match at WrestleMania, joining Royal Rumble winner John Cena and whomever the KWF Champion may be. We see Brock Lesnar beating Joker Hardy, King Dolph beating RVD thanks to interference from Ryback, Panther getting the better of Mr. Anderson, Kurt Angle defeating The UnderTaker after an attack from The Absolute Lashley, Samoa Joe putting away Jeff Jarrett and CM Punk effectively knocking out Kevin Nash. All six men are ready, and so are we as the video ends on a grainy image of the structure that is the Elimination Chamber.
We’re back in the arena and we can see that the massive Chamber structure has now been put in place over and around the ring. The fans are loud as JR and Regal exclaim their excitement. JR: “There’s nothing quite like an Elimination Chamber, and the winner is going to the main event of WrestleMania!” ♫Cult of Personality♫ «< click to play) blares over the sound system and CM Punk, the last man to qualify for this match this past Wednesday on Turmoil, makes his way down the ramp. He enters the first pod, and is followed by King Dolph, Panther and Kurt Angle. Samoa Joe then heads out and Regal points out that we now know the two men who will start this match. The loud intimidating ♫music of Brock Lesnar♫ «< click to play) hits, and the Ultimate Fighter heads out last. The Chamber door is shut, the pods are sealed, and we’re going to kick things off with Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar.
CM Punk vs. King Dolph vs. Panther vs. Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar - Elimination Chamber match – winner will advance to main event for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania
Lesnar looks really pumped for this, as JR points out the factor that he was the very first of these participants to qualify when he beat Joker Hardy over three weeks ago, while Joe only advanced this past Wednesday after besting Jeff Jarrett. “Brock has had plenty of time to prepare for this and plot his strategy.” Regal: “Strategy? He beats people up and pins them. You don’t need three and a half weeks to plan for that.” Joe doesn’t look intimidated as they lock up. They fiercely push against one another, with Lesnar just getting the better of the Samoan Submission Machine. He backs him up to a corner. He lets go and raises his arms, but quickly attempts a shot at Joe. However, Joe ducks underneath it and goes behind Lesnar, turning him around and hitting several right hooks of his own. He backs into the middle of the ring and Lesnar follows, but Joe executes an arm drag and Lesnar rolls to the other corner.
Lesnar gets up in a fury and is facing Panther’s pod. The Black Cat smiles and waves at him, but this enrages Brock, who punches the Perspex, nearly shattering it. Regal: “Good God man, don’t anger it. You’ll be in there yourself in a minute you dozy pillock!” Lesnar channels his anger to get back into the match, and puts a submission hold on Joe, but the Samoan is able to maneuver his way out of it. He clotheslines Brock over the top rope and onto the steel grate, before following. They trade blows on the outside of the ring, before Brock Irish-whips Joe into Panther’s pod, smashing the side of it. Panther: “Hey! Leave my pod alone!”
The timing is perfect as the countdown clock leads us to our next entrant. The lights lower and the spotlight moves around the four pods, eventually stopping on that of CM Punk! The self proclaimed Best in the World is eager to get into the match, and heads straight for the waiting Lesnar. The action is back in the ring and Punk is flying here. He is slightly fresher and it shows. He is firing shots at Brock, and he sends him into the corner, before following with a knee to the face and a bulldog. He covers but barely gets Two. The fans chant Punk’s name as he continues to work over Lesnar. We see that Joe is just starting to recover on the outside. Punk hits Lesnar with kicks, before seeing that Joe is back up. He heads over to the ropes and springs of the middle of the top rope, going for a flying clothesline, but Joe moves to the side and pushes Punk into the steel chains of the inside of the Chamber.
Punk is down and hurt, as Joe covers him, getting a close Two. Joe leaves Punk and heads back into the ring to take on Brock. They trade more shots back and forth, with Brock getting on top again. He impressively gets Joe up in position for an F5, but Joe elbows him in the jaw to escape. However, they are both taken out moments later as Punk flies off the top rope again, hitting a double dropkick. The fans cheer as we count down to our next contestant… it’s Kurt Angle! The Olympic Gold medalist gets in and straight away goes for Lesnar, while Punk works over Joe. JR reminds us that both these encounters have a history, with Angle and Lesnar clashing at WWE WrestleMania 19 and Punk and Joe putting in a match of the year contender at Bound For Glory last October. Angle and Lesnar are fighting on pure adrenaline, showing that their hatred for one another is still very much bubbling on the surface. Angle sends Lesnar against the ropes, but Brock reverses it, before catching him on the rebound and tossing him over his head with a belly-to-belly suplex. However, just a few moments later, Angle executes a side belly-to-belly on Brock.
Regal says that Angle is lucky to be in this match as he only defeated The UnderTaker in his qualifier thanks to The Absolute Lashley, but JR ripostes that a performer of Angle’s pedigree belongs in a match like this. Meanwhile, Joe and Punk are closely matched also, just as they were in their epic KWF Championship match. Punk hits a high boot to the head, and thinks he’s in control, but Joe plays possum and very nearly puts on the Kokina Clutch. However, Punk uses the ropes to stay out of it, before elbowing Joe away and hitting a neckbreaker. The lights soon come down and we count down to our penultimate entrant, Panther!
The pod door is opened, but Panther turns around and steps out through the Samoa Joe-sized hole on the other side. He stands by the edge of the Chamber, before rubbing his hands together, running up to the ropes and leaping onto the middle of the top rope, before flying off and clattering into all four of the other participants. Everyone is left in a big pile in the middle of the ring as the fans cheer. JR: “Well, that’s quite a way to make an entrance.” Regal: “Bloody show off, and he’s hurt himself in the process.” JR: “Panther is a natural entertainer, and can now say that he just took out four of the top guys in the KWF with one move.” Panther’s antics get him into trouble though, as Angle and Joe work together to teach him some respect. They take him to the outside of the ring and Joe slingshots Panther into the side of the Chamber, before Angle hits a German Suplex on him. The Black Cat smacks the back of his head on the steel and is in serious pain. Angle’s hurt too, but Joe is able to get the cover. One, Two – but no, he can’t put Panther away. Meanwhile, Punk and Lesnar are at it again, and Brock is on top. He fires Punk into the corner, shoulder first into the ring post, before felling him with a decapitating clothesline. He covers but also only finds Two. The final countdown comes up on the screen and we soon have our final competitor, King Dolph!
JR: “We now have a complete set. All six participants are in the ring, and we are yet to have our first elimination. At least now there can be no excuses as the winner, whomever he may be, will have to survive all five of his fellow combatants.” Regal: “God I love Elimination Chambers! My money’s on Brock. He started this match and still looks imperious.” Unsurprisingly, Dolph heads straight for Panther. He picks the bones of the work done by Joe and Angle, who are fighting each other again, and lays the boot into his long-time nemesis. He drops a jumping elbow and covers, but Panther kicks out yet again. The fans are chanting for almost everyone in the Chamber as the match progresses. Angle takes down Lesnar with an Angle Slam, but gets only Two, while Punk inadvertently rescues Panther by nailing King Dolph with an enziguiri. Punk and Dolph trade moves now, with the King showing off as usual. JR points out that he’s still looking brash and cocky even without Ryback as protection, and Regal reminds us that Dolph became King of the Ring all by himself, so he can certainly cope in the Chamber.
Ziggler’s not holding back and is trying to hit moves on everyone. He even attempts a Zig-Zag on Lesnar, but Brock doesn’t go down. Instead, Dolph hangs off him like a backpack, until he’s thrown over the head of the Ultimate Fighter. Now Dolph is on the receiving end of moves as Angle nails him with a hard shot to the head, and CM Punk pushes him into Samoa Joe, who grabs hold of him and wraps him in a Kokina Clutch. He falls back on it and has it locked on. Dolph struggles, but it’s no good and before long he is forced to tap out. King Dolph is eliminated. JR: “Dolph is outta there. The last one in is the first one out. Sometimes being overly confident can have its drawbacks, everyone wants a piece of you.” Regal: “That was gang mentality Jim, and did you notice the one person who didn’t get a crack at him was Panther?” That was due to the Black Cat being hurt on the outside. An enraged Dolph goes to head out of the Chamber as the door is opened, but he passes the recovering Panther as he does, and in a fit of rage, Ziggler floors him with a Zig-Zag right on the steel! The fans boo loudly as officials come in to force Dolph out of the Chamber. He yells: “You had that coming! You cost me at the Rumble, and that’s payback!” JR: “That is an absolute disgrace! Dolph Ziggler is out of this match, and he may well have taken an innocent Panther with him! Get him out of there!” Regal: “He’s right though. Panther knocked him out of the Royal Rumble, so Dolph is getting his own back.” Panther is in pain and rolls under the bottom rope and into the ring. He is picked up by Brock Lesnar, who puts him straight on his shoulders, before executing a perfect F5! He covers and the Three is elementary. Panther is eliminated.
JR: “So thanks to the heinous actions of Dolph Ziggler, we’re now down to four.” Panther is helped out of the Chamber as Lesnar is set upon by CM Punk again. He hits him with a kick to the gut, and then comes off the ropes to lift a knee into his face. He attempts to lock on an Anaconda Vise, but Brock fights him off and hits knees to his head. Meanwhile, Joe and Angle are having a very even contest on the outside, trading blows and holds. Angle applies a front headlock, but Joe squirms out of it and hits shots to the back of Angle’s head, before pushing him into a pod, and following up with a modified facewash kick. It backfires somewhat though, as his foot ends up going through the Perspex after Angle moves to avoid it. He is hurt, but still somehow manages to fight off Angle. He elbows him away and looks to escape into the ring, but as he goes through the ropes, Angle grabs Joe’s hurt ankle. He applies an Ankle Lock, with Kurt stood on the outside and Joe hanging over the middle rope, with only his leg still on the outside. He tries to kick Kurt away, but every time Angle wrenches it, he collapses in pain. Angle has sweat pouring down him as he continues to apply pressure, and despite Joe’s best attempts to fight back, he eventually taps out. Samoa Joe is eliminated.
Regal: “And then there were three. One of Brock Lesnar, CM Punk or Kurt Angle will be going to WrestleMania to fight for the KWF World Title. Can you feel the electricity in here JR?” JR: “I sure can.” The three men look at one another, and it becomes apparent that Angle and Punk are going to try and double up on Lesnar. Brock is powerful and fights them off in the early going, but soon succumbs as Punk hits a low dropkick to the knee. Angle then clasps his arms around Brock, before hitting one, two and three German Suplexes. He pulls down his straps as he seems set for the Angle Slam. However, as he waits for Lesnar to get up, CM Punk rolls him up and very nearly gets Three. This causes Angle and Punk to go at it, allowing Brock to recover. Punk looks to be getting the better of the Olympic Gold medalist, until he tries one kick too many and gets caught. Angle grabs his foot and applies the Ankle Lock. Punk is in serious trouble as Angle looks to earn his second submission of the match. Punk is roaring in pain, but refuses to tap out. Angle is shouting at him to tap, and the fans are on their feet, some wanting the tap, some begging Punk to hold on. Just as Punk looks set to tap, *BAM!* Lesnar comes up behind Angle and floors him with a low blow. Angle lets go of the hold and collapses to the canvas. JR: “Why? Why do that when Punk was about to tap?” Regal: “Because Brock Lesnar wants to make Punk tap himself.” Regal proves to be correct as Lesnar gets straight onto Punk and applies the Kimura Lock. He wrenches Punk’s arm as JR says “It’s a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire for CM Punk.”
Punk struggles and grabs the ropes, but in a Chamber match this does nothing. Regal: “Brock could break his arm at any moment. Punk should tap now, or he won’t make WrestleMania in any form.” Again, Punk looks close to tapping as his attempts to break the hold have been futile. However, Lesnar is grabbed from behind by Angle, who applies a rear naked choke. This forces Brock to let go of Punk, and now it is he who is in danger of tapping. Punk pulls himself away from danger to recover, as Lesnar fights back against Angle. He manages to break the hold, and now the two of them get up to hurl right hands at one another, brawling away. JR: “This isn’t wrestling anymore, this is a straight up fight between Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle!” Regal: “Kurt is tough as old boots, but you should never get into a fight with a former UFC Champion.” Angle is holding his own though, and forces Lesnar against the ropes. Brock turns it around and hits some savage body blows. Angle resorts to raking the eyes to get Lesnar away from him, and then he goes to attack his blinded opponent. However, Lesnar recovers in time to lift Angle up, before throwing him over the top rope and onto the steel grate with an F5! He heads straight through the ropes and covers, getting One, Two and Three. Kurt Angle is eliminated.
JR: “We are now at two after that devastating F5. CM Punk or Brock Lesnar will be heading to compete for the World Title in the main event of KWF WrestleMania!” Brock gets back in the ring and sees that Punk is still in a bad way on the far side. He walks across and picks Punk up, before hoisting him onto his shoulders and driving his head into the side of the Chamber. Punk falls down and is trying to crawl into one of the pods. Lesnar watches him and smirks confidently. Punk closes the pod door, but it does no good as Lesnar punches it open again. JR: “My God! He just smashed that Perspex with his bare hand!” Regal: “He’s not the most subtle chap is he?” Lesnar reaches in and drags Punk back out of the pod, before tossing him back into the ring. He follows and stalks Punk, who is trying to seek sanctuary by the ropes, but he can’t escape Brock, who drags him up by the tights, before hitting a backbreaker. He covers without hooking the leg, and nearly gets Three. He looks slightly angered that he didn’t, and so he looks set to end it. He picks Punk up onto his shoulders and is set for the F5. However, Punk hits him with some desperate elbows, and manages to escape, before an instinctive boot to the side of the head sends both Brock and Punk falling to the canvas.
JR: “Both men are down, and maybe, just maybe, CM Punk can still make something of this match!” Regal: “Brock had it won, but he didn’t hook the leg. And remember Jim, a kick like that knocked out Kevin Nash just a few days ago on Turmoil. Lesnar may be on dream street here.” Punk very slowly gets to his feet, and waits for Lesnar to do the same, before attempting a bodyslam. However, Lesnar lifts him up again for an F5, but Punk uses the momentum of going up to slip over his shoulder and land behind, before hoisting Lesnar onto his own shoulders with an inconceivable show of strength. JR: “He’s got Brock up and… YES! GTS! GTS! GTS!” Brock is put down with Go To Sleep, but Punk has collapsed again and cannot get across to pin straight away. He looks at Brock, and then looks to the corner. He heads for the turnbuckles as Regal asks why. JR: “I think he realizes he may have left it too late to make the pin. He’s going for one last move.” Punk heads up to the top rope and points to the sky. The fans cheer, but Punk doesn’t jump. Instead he looks to the sky, then behind him, before climbing up further still so that he is on top of one of the pods. JR: “Where’s he going? CM Punk is climbing on top of the pod! Just what does he have in mind here?!” Punk slowly raises himself as the fans noise increases further, before leaping off the pod and connecting with an almighty Elbow Drop! The fans go absolutely bananas as Punk wearily slumps his arm over Lesnar and the official counts One… Two… THREE!
Winner: CM Punk.
JR: “Punk did it! CM Punk did it! He outlasted five other men to win the Elimination Chamber, and CM Punk is now going to WrestleMania!” Regal: “Well he’s lost me a few quid, but I’ve got to hand it to Mr. Punk. That was quite a showing. To be so close to tapping out on two occasions, and then to come back and do what he did to a man like Brock Lesnar, well, he deserves every plaudit he’s going to get from this, and he certainly deserves to main event WrestleMania. Well done that man.” Punk can barely stand as the referee tries to raise his hand. ♫Cult of Personality♫ «< click to play) fills the arena as the fans applaud such a heroic effort.
We come into a shot panning across the skyline of New York as a graphic fades onto the screen. It is the logo for KWF WrestleMania 2013. It fades out again, and is replaced by another graphic saying ’35 days’. The short commercial comes to an end and we come back into the arena as JR excitedly says “Yes ladies and gentlemen, we are just five short weeks away from the biggest night of the year, KWF WrestleMania 2013, live from New York City on Sunday March 31st!” Regal: “I cannot wait for that Jim, as with every year, I guarantee that history will be made that night in some form or another.” JR: “It always is William, and WrestleMania is already taking shape. We know two of the three participants in its main event Triple Threat match for the KWF Championship. Royal Rumble winner John Cena will face Elimination Chamber winner CM Punk, but we still do not know who the Champion will be heading into it, but we’re about to find out. Will it be AJ Styles or Wade Barrett? Folks here comes our SuperBrawl main event of the evening!”
We fade into a video chronicling the long term rivalry between the Phenomenal One and the leader of the British Invasion. It all began when Barrett succeeded Eric Young at the head of the ‘World Elite’ group when the KWF was split between two shows, and led them into battle against the ‘Thundercat’ faction headed up by Edge and Styles. That rivalry came to a head at Survivor Series 2010 (the last night we saw Bobby Lashley) as the Thundercats defeated the World Elite, ultimately leading to the demise of both factions. AJ moved on to his solo career, and went on to win the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania 2011. He was to cash in after a grueling Triple Threat match against Triple H and The UnderTaker at SummerSlam and won his first ever WWE Championship. A few months down the line, Wade Barrett, now leader of the British Invasion having been groomed for the role by William Regal, would become the number one contender, and won the Title from Styles at Casino Warfare thanks to interference from John Cena. The heat was turned up between the two in the months that followed, and Styles eventually won the Belt back at SuperBrawl last year.
Barrett spent much of the past twelve months suffering from injury problems and trying to lead the British Invasion, but after coming close to winning the Royal Rumble last month (and believing himself that he had won it) Edge granted Barrett an opportunity to take the KWF Championship from his long term nemesis and carry it into WrestleMania. However, Styles has been Champion since he won an epic one-hour Ironman match against CM Punk at Survivor Series 2012. Barrett was made to team with Styles and, ironically, Cena on the night he learned that he was to be the number one contender, as they faced a common enemy in LAX. However, Barrett’s mind was always on the Title as he hit both his partners with a Bull-hammer elbow during the match. Cena was to get his revenge the following week as he attacked Barrett from behind with an FU while the Brit was on the stage taunting Styles, but tonight offers the Phenomenal One his first chance to get even, while Barrett has a big opportunity to be Champion at the most crucial time of the year. We fade back into the arena as the fans raise the volume in anticipation. After a long silence, a shower of golden pyro pours onto the stage… ♫Get Ready To Fly!♫ «< click to play) the reigning, defending KWF World Champion AJStyles comes out to a great reception, and looks pumped up for his toughest Title defense yet.
As Barrett comes out by himself, JR wonders if he had anything to do with the British Invasion attacking LAX earlier. Regal: “I’ve no doubt he did, but didn’t want to muddy his hands himself as he knew how important this match is. Win the strap tonight and carry it into WrestleMania? It’s no less than he deserves.” Styles and Barrett eyeball each other as the referee raises the KWF Title and hands it to ringside. Justin Roberts makes the official introductions and the comms build up how this is the last challenge AJ Styles will have. JR: “Win this one AJ, and you are it, you are the top dog to carry that KWF Title and defend it on the grandest stage of all.” Regal rubs his hands together: “Just watch Jim, it’s Barrett’s time. The pressure may be on AJ, but the determination is with Wade Barrett. A Brit to go into Mania at the World Champion. Yes, come on Wade, this is it.” The fans are on their feet and the bell goes and we’re underway.
AJ Styles vs. Wade Barrett – KWF World Heavyweight Championship
The match begins with a collar and elbow tie-up, as JR reminds us that by the end of this one, we’ll know our WrestleMania main event. Barrett pushes AJ against the ropes, and the referee forces the break, but Barrett hits Styles with a right hand. The fans boo, but Barrett doesn’t care as it’s given him the upper hand. He backs Styles into the corner and starts striking him with hard shots to the face and torso. Regal talks up Barrett’s bareknuckle fighting background, suggesting that he is too powerful for AJ and as he pointed out last week, is just one Bull-hammer Elbow away from knocking Styles out cold. JR says that as Styles overcame Brock Lesnar last month at the Royal Rumble, it’s unlikely that he’ll be undone by Barrett’s power. Barrett hits a backbreaker, before a relaxed cover barely gets Two. He looks very comfortable, but perhaps too comfortable as he goes for a suplex, but Styles lands on his feet behind him, before hitting a neckbreaker. Styles’ fans cheer as he gets to his feet and looks to get back into the match. He comes off the ropes and hits a low dropkick to the head of Barrett, before an innovative roll-up gets Two.
Styles looks to up the tempo as he uses the ropes, both by sending Barrett against them and flying off them himself. He hits a standing dropkick on Barrett after bouncing him off the ropes and he is very much on top now. He springboards off the middle rope and hits a legdrop, getting another Two from the pin. As Barrett gets up again, AJ comes off the ropes, but gets put down when the Brit raises his boot and catches him in the face. Barrett shakes his head, trying to get his senses back after Styles’ offense, and slows the tempo of the match down again as he methodically works over the Champion. He hits a successful suplex now, before adjusting his elbow pad, and signaling that he intends to end this one early. Regal: “Oh yes, it’s Bull-hammer time!” He picks Styles up and grabs his arm, before pulling him towards himself and aiming his elbow at the face, but AJ ducks it before *BAM!* Pele connects!
The fans cheer as Styles and Barrett are both down. AJ gets to his feet and decides to head out to the apron. He measures up and goes for a 450-Splash off the middle of the top rope. However, Barrett rolls out of the way. Styles manages to land on his feet, but awkwardly and seems to have done something to his ankle. He hobbles to the corner, and as he sees that Barrett is getting up, he escapes to the outside. He is concerned about his ankle, but cannot do anything about it as Barrett is right on him. He tries to fight him off, but can’t on one foot. Barrett hits him with some shots, before launching him into the barrier. Regal: “This is where Wade Barrett is at his best. He’s smelled blood and is going in for the kill. That’s what Champions do Jim.” He drags AJ by the ankle, before slamming it against the steel steps. AJ is in a tremendous amount of pain, and Barrett looks smug and in charge once more. He walks over to William Regal, and shakes his hand. JR: “Oh come on! Try and show some impartiality at least!” Barrett, looks at JR, before stripping the top of the announce table. He moves the monitors, and takes JR’s water.
He takes a swig, before dumping the rest of it over Styles. He then picks him up as JR and Regal clear the area. He sets Styles up for a powerbomb through the table. However, as he gets him up, Styles manages to maneuver it so that he brings Barrett down with a DDT! The fans cheer as AJ struggles to get back to his feet and rolls back into the ring. JR: “This could be it! A Count-out victory could do it for Styles! Barrett is out cold it seems, and AJ might have won it!” Regal: “Get up Wade! For the love of God!” The referee is counting as AJ lies on the canvas holding his ankle. Barrett is beginning to stir, but has just four seconds to get back in the ring. He pulls himself towards the ring, before using the ring apron to pull himself up. The referee gets to Nine, and Barrett just about manages to roll back in. Regal: “Yes! Well done Wade! Now put him away!” Styles manages to get up, shaking off his ankle injury. He grabs Barrett, trying to throw him to the corner. Barrett reverses it and launches Styles, but AJ springs back off the middle rope with a moonsault, landing on his feet and hitting a Reverse DDT. The fans go wild as AJ covers, getting One… Two… no! Barrett kicks out. JR: “That was vintage AJ Styles, and that ankle seems to not be bothering him so much now. That Ten-count break did him some good.”
Styles can’t believe it, and uses the ropes to pull himself up. He signals that it’s time for the Clash, and as Barrett gets to his feet he puts his head in position. However, in a reversal of Turmoil’s main event when Styles turned an Alabama Slam attempt by Alberto Del Rio into a Styles Clash, Barrett lifts the Champion up and turns a Clash attempt into an Alabama Slam. He falls down, before crawling over for the cover, getting One… Two… no! Now it’s Styles’ turn to kick out. Barrett gets up and looks exhausted, but rearranges his elbow pad again, ready to hit a Bull-hammer. Regal: “Yes, that’s it, come on Wade, come on.” However, as he waits for AJ to get up, there’s boos from the crowd as we see that LAX are storming the ring. Del Rio, Mysterio, Homicide, Hernandez and Konnan are running to the ring and they attack both Barrett and Styles. The referee has no choice but to throw the match out.
No Contest: AJ Styles retains KWF World Heavyweight Championship by way of default.
LAX hold nothing back as they beat down both Champion and Challenger. Regal: “What on earth?! Wade was about to win the Title, what’s going on?!” JR: “It must be in retaliation to the British Invasion costing Del Rio the Hardcore Championship earlier tonight. LAX have caused this match to be thrown out, and they’re savagely attacking both men!” Hernandez floors Styles with a Border Toss, while Del Rio has Barrett in a Cross Armbreaker. However, he is forced to let go as we see that the rest of the British Invasion are heading to the ring again. They enter and another brawl ensues between the two factions. JR: “This is absolute chaos! This is as a result of Edge not being here, and Mick Foley being taken out by LAX earlier tonight. This is what happens when the inmates run the asylum!” Regal: “Come on you Brits! Get them! They cost Wade the KWF Title!” JR: “Well this means that AJ Styles is still the KWF Champion, which I assume means that he is now the third man in the WrestleMania main event. John Cena, CM Punk and AJ Styles? Mouthwatering!” Regal: “It’s not fair! Bloody Mexicans!” JR: “Thank you all for taking the time to be with us tonight. We hope you’ve enjoyed the show, the final pay-per-view before WrestleMania! Let us know what you thought, and we’ll see you right back here on KWF Blogs this Wednesday for all the fallout from tonight! Join us won’t you? Goodnight from Oklahoma!” The crowd haven’t had a conclusion to their main event, but they’re well into witnessing the super brawl between these two factions. We fade out on the image of the British Invasion brawling with the Latin American eXchange.
