– FADE IN –
(We fade in on COMMISSIONER MASSIF’S office. MASSIF is on the phone. Behind him PAIGE is using a laser tape measure to measure the back wall.)
MASSIF: 10 A.M. tomorrow morning in the conference room. Alert all the usual media outlets and say–
(PAIGE bumps into the back of MASSIF’S chair.)
MASSIF (into phone): Hold on one second…(to PAIGE)… Paige, watch it!
PAIGE: Oh sorry Chief.
MASSIF: What are you doing anyway?
PAIGE: The board asked me to measure the walls in your office.
MASSIF: Oh…(back to the phone)…Now make sure the….hang on…(to PAIGE)…wait a minute, why does the board want you to measure the walls in my office?
PAIGE: I dunno. just asked me to do it and I make it a rule not to say no to the board.
MASSIF: Huh. Well just wait till I can finish this phone call and then you can have the office to yourself. (to phone) So the press conference is 10 AM tomorrow and I’ll respond to Endgame’s accusations of me doing nothing against rule breakers then okay? (pause) Great, not I’ve got to go kick off BIG BANG! (hangs up the phone. Turns to PAIGE.) It’s all yours.
PAIGE: Thanks chief!
(MASSIF leaves. PAIGE returns to measuring. We cut to the OPENING THEME.)
– COMMISSIONER MASSIF’S WECOME –
(After the opening theme and the pyro we are LIVE at BIG BANG! The crowd is going nuts and standing in the middle of the ring is none other than COMMISSIONER MASSIF.)
MASSIF: Hello and welcome to BIG BANG!!
MASSIF: Now I know you’re all eager to get to some historic GWF action but I just wanted to come out and let you, the fans know, that I realize I’ve been getting a lot of criticism about my job as Commissioner lately. The board has been down on me, the wrestlers have been down on me and evenm and this is what hurts me the most, you the fans have been down on me. But I’m here to make a new year’s resolution, in 2123, I’m gonna be the kind of commissioner you all want me to be. I’m stepping up my efforts to give you, the fans, the federation you want to see. That’s why I started tonight by creating the first ever FANS DEMAND match! Now record numbers of you voted for which match you want to see open the card here tonight and boy, you’ve picked an instant classic! So let’s not waste anytime and get to the action! Have a great evening folks!
(CROWD CHEERS as we go to our first match.)
– FANS DEMAND MATCH –
Wolf vs. Endgame
Endgame defeated Wolf with an ULTIMA LEAP into a pinfall
Match Rating: 3.50
Match Notes: A decent card to open the evening. ENDGAME simply outwrestled Wolf who looked preoccupied the whole time. It’s certainly the first time in a LONG time that Wolrf was on the undercard of a BIG BANG event.
– LORELI’S RETIREMENT MATCH –
Phantasy vs. Lorelei
Phantasy defeated Lorelei with a SWEET SUICIDE into a pinfall
Match Rating: 1.50
Match Notes: You would have to think that this is NOT how LORELI saw her final match in a GWF ring. PHANTASY simply destroyed the veteran and left her crumpled on the mat minutes after the opening bell. LORELI was able to get to her feet and thanked the fans for the support over the years and then, teary, made her way backstage.
– CASTOR CHAIN MATCH –
Kill Prey vs. The Betrayer
Kill Prey defeated The Betrayer with an AMBUSH into a pinfall
Match Rating: 4.50
Match Notes: A great back and forth battle between these two younger stars. THE BETRAYER showed more of an offense than he had at the BETRAYAL tournament, but still was out wrestled by KILL PREY.
– BARBED WIRE COSMIC CAGE MATCH –
Payback vs. American Guy
American Guy defeated Payback with an AMERICAN FIREPOWER to escpae the cage – pinfall –
Match Rating: 5.00
Match Notes: This promised to be bloody from the get go and it didn’t disappoint! These two men literally tore each other apart! This was one of the most violent matches we’ve seen in a long time. In the end AMERICAN GUY had to be helped to the back by THE BETRAYER and PAYBACK was taken from the ring on a stretcher. PAYBACK is definitely injured, more word on how badly, soon.
Rage and Paralyze vs. The Troubleshooters
The Bomb defeated Rage with a DQ when RAGE took the fight outside the ring and refused to bring it back in
Match Rating: 4.00
Match Notes: A wild melee between these two, obviously frustrated teams, who both feel they should be wrestling for the GALAXIAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP.

for the GWF Women’s Championship
Strafe defeated Mother Superior with a Skyscraper Powerbomb into a pinfall

MOTHER SUPERIOR: Enjoy it while it lasts! Cause it ain’t gonna last long!
MOTHER SUPERIOR through down the mic and stormed backstage.
Strafe won the GWF Women’s Championship
– GWF INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH –
Havoc vs. Tricks
for the GWF Interplanetary Championship

Circus Strongmen vs. Divided We Fall
for the Galaxian Tag Team Championship
Encubus defeated Tanck with a GAMEMASTER DDT into a pinfall
Match Rating: 4.00
Match Notes: CIRCUS STRONGMEN wrestled a good match. They knew that this was a shot they couldn’t afford to blow, but DIVIDED WE FALL was just too good. BLOODLINE and ENCUBUS simply wore them down and soone they had no choice but to bow to the superior team.
– GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP – TIRION TRIPLE THREAT MATCH – NO DQS COUNTOUTS OR MANAGERS ALLOWED –
Monolith vs. Disaster vs. Valour
for the Galaxian Championship
Monolith defeated Disaster with an END OF ALL THINGS into a pinfall.
Match Rating: 5.00
Match Notes: MONOLITH behaved as if he was a cat playing with two new toys. As much as VALOUR and DISASTER tried to bring the big man down, they simply couldn’t. MONOLITH simply waited and when the opportunity arose he struck and DISASTER fell! MONOLITH is still your GALAXIAN CHAMPION as we…
FADE TO BLACK
