CARD 2130.267 – INVASION
Ishtar Terrace, Ishtar Terra, Venus
We begin not in the ring but in the back of the arena. A door opens and out walks MAGNUS THE MAGNANIMOUS. He is talking to someone else inside the room.
MAGUS: …no, you are right. Any investment is worth vetting and this is a great way to do it.
SUR follows MAGNUS out the doorway.
SUR: After BATTLEZONE, I think a test of loyalties is a good thing.
MAGNUS: Sur, I said I agreed, no need to keep harping on it.
MAGNUS turns and looks into the doorway.
MAGNUS: This okay with you?
THE PRIME COLONIZER steps through the door. He crosses his arms and lets out a grunt of approval.
MAGNUS: Good. I’ll go see Euritar then.
MAGNUS walks down the hallway. SUR and THE PRIME COLONIZER eye each other suspiciously for a moment, then walk away down different directions of the hallway.
With this we cut up into the ring to find the DARK MENACE standing with BISHOP HELL (II).
DARK MENACE: Cage Death Betrayer! You dare put your hands on me?! You dare put your hands on the greatest manager in the history of the GWF?!
The crowd boos loudly, obviously not agreeing with DARK MENACE.
DARK MENACE: Well now you pay! Get out there so you can taste some Hellfire!
CAGE DEATH BETRAYER appears with his manager WIGGY, who is wearing an ‘I Signed Endgame’ shirt. They make their way to the ring.
CAGE DEATH BETRAYER: I want Death Masque!
DARK MENACE: You don’t get Death Masque! Tonight you get Bishop Hell (II)!
CAGE DETH BETRAYER charges the ring and the bell sounds!
HOLY CRAP FANS, here we go!
The match is wild! Cage Death Betrayer has Bishop Hell (II) close to beat several times, but he always manages to kick out! The action spills out into the ringside area and chairs, Cage Death Betrayer’s chain, Hellfire, the ring bell, Wiggy’s InfiNet tablet and even a bacon wrapped piece of celery from the concession stands gets used and finally the ref has to call it!
Cage Death Betrayer and Bishop Hell (II) battle to a DOUBLE DISQUALIFICATION – ****
After the bell, both men continue to battle, up the aisle of the arena and out the door. The bloodthirsty fans at Ishtar Terrace love ever second of it.
Some order is eventually restores at ringside and we are ready for our next match!
PAGANAX charges to ringside, waving his big flaming sword all around! His opponent…THANTOS (II) who makes his way to the ring with MAGNUS THE MAGNANIMOUS by his side! The bell rings and we are off!
It’s a match that pits pure brute force against incredible technical skill! The fans are on their feet the whole time!
Paganax d. Thantos (II) via submission with BOW TO THE HEATHEN CHIEF – *****
PGANAX stands tall over the fallen THANTOS (II) waving his sword high in the air and declaring this victory the first in his personal war against FUTURE SHOCK. He points the sword at MAGNUS who is helping THANTOS (II) out of the ring.
PAGANAX: Bring me another victim and I will chop him down!
The crowd cheers loudly!
We cut back to the locker room where SWARM is doing rowing squats. THE PRIME COLONIZER enters and SWARM stops and walks up to him so they are eye to eye, well, SWARM is looking up a little because of the height difference.
SWARM: What do you want monkey? Just because we are on the same team doesn’t mean I have to like you.
PRIME COLONIZER: No. It does not. But you must be able to work with me and tonight we shall test that. We have a tag team match tonight. You and I are partners.
SWARM is silent for a moment but the nods.
SWARM: I got no problem with that, as long as the check clears at the end of the day.
PRIME COLONIZER grunts and leaves the room. SWARM goes back to doing squats as we cut back down to the ring.
DESERTERS stand in the ring getting loudly jeered by the crowd.
ADAM TRAITOR: Tharkas here, hates humans.
THARTKAS nods. The crowd boos loudly.
ADAM TRAITOR: Now, being a human, I give them a little more leeway. But something about humans really piss me off and one of those things is when two humans from different races mix. And, disgustingly enough, it’s happening here in the GWF. So let’s have those two, brainless, imbeciles Shoot and Clinch out here, so we can erase them from this federation for good.
The ULTIMATE FIGHTERS’ music begins and the crowd explodes and begin doing the wacky arm motions that are Shoot and Clinch’s signature moves! The two charge into the arena, headed straight for the ring, looking incredibly upset at TRAITOR’S words! The bell rings and this tag team affair begins!
These two teams tear into each other with a vengeance! At one point, She-Devil hops onto the apron and distracts Tharkas when he’s covering Clinch and Clinch kicks out! DESERTERS fight back and several quick tags later, Shoot locks TAPPED OUT on Adam Traitor!
ULTIMATE FIGHTERS d. DESERTERS via submission when Adam Traitor taps out to Shoot’s TAPPED OUT – **1/2
The ULTIMATE FIGHTERS throw the DESERTERS out of the ring like yesterdays space trash and celebrate wildly with She Devil in the ring! They do their crazy arm motions and lick each other’s heads much to the delight of the fans.
The DESERTERS skulk away, but look to be far from satisfied with what went down today.
Once the crazy ULTIMATE FIGHTERS’ celebration ends, the crowd is shocked to see the number one contender, CHAOS SUPREME come to the ring! He makes his way down to the ring slowly, not even acknowledging the fans. MAGNUS walks behind him laughing and taunting the crowd.
Suddenly, THE ONES IN THE WATER starts playing and out comes PLETHADOR with his manager WIGGY!
The fans dance along and chant, “You’re a woman! You’re a woman!” to the beat of the song. Plethador soaks it all in with a smile. Wiggy refuses to dance, instead she just keeps showing off her new shit that reads, “Who’s Got Endgame? ‘Dis Bitch!” Plethador dances his way ringside and climbs up into the ring. It looks like he’ll be taking on CHAOS SUPREME one on one!
The bell rings, Plethador does the sign of the cross and we begin!
It’s not as one sided as everyone though it would be! Plethador didn’t come anywhere close to winning, but Chaos Supreme didn’t put him down immediately either. One moment, as they battled towards the ropes, Plethador grabbed Wiggy’s InfiNet tablet out of her hand and used it to smash Chaos Supreme on the head when the ref’s back was turned!
WIGGY: You dumb frog I just got that back!
The match continued, but Chaos Supreme inevitably gets the win.
Chaos Supreme d. Plethador via submission with BOW OF DEFEAT – ***
Chaos Stands tall as Magnus grabs the mic.
MAGNUS: I hope you’re watching Shayne. Your days as GALAXIAN CHAMPION are numbered!
MAGNUS laughs wildly and leaves the ring with CHAOS SUPREME.
PLETHADOR follows out, holding his ribs, WIGGY behind him, scolding him!
WIGGY: You broke my tablet you idiot! And I was just downloading an app that would’ve made the sound quality on my podcast listenable!
PLETHADOR shakes his head and leave, WIGGY squawking behind him.
Up next, tag team action pitting THE IMMORTALS taking on TITAN SAMURAI!
This one is over in seconds!
IMMORTALS d. TITAN SAMURAI via DQ when Kenji gets his team DQ’d trying to break up a pin attempt – DUD
The two teams start brawling immediately after the bell! Even Ghena and Lord Nexus get involved in the donnybrook! The crowd is going nuts! Officials and wrestlers pour out to separate the six men! Even separated they are all still yelling at each other! The fans are chanting, “Let them fight! Let them fight!”
Officials get them to calm down and the TITANS leave! Speculation is running rampant! Could this get Lord Nexus back into the ring for one more match?! There is huge excitement at the possibility!
Up next, looking for revenge from BATTLEZONE! Minister of War is here to take on Paralyze!
It’s Gladiator versus Gladiator in an all out war!
Paralyze d. Minister of War via pinfall after hitting the Decapitator – ****1/2
Both were bloody at the end, but Paralyze stands tall over Minister of War with his hand raised. He picked Minister of War up and threw him out of the ring where he landed right onto of Magnus! The crowd loved it!
Finally it was time for out MAIN EVENT!
Swarm came out first to a loud chorus of ‘You sold out! You sold out!’ chants! Out next was The Prime Colonizer with Lope. The two men stood in the ring, not looking at each other, but staring intently on the curtain. Out next was Magnus, looking a bit disheveled after that last match but he had a mic.
MAGNUS: Swarm, you are a mighty warrior. You were worth every penny that I paid for you…er…I mean, paid you. But at BATTLEZONE, you wobbled a little. That’s fine, we all wobble a little from time to time. Well, I don’t, but normal people do.
The crowd let him have it for this.
MAGNUS: What this is tonights is simply a test of your loyalty. I just want to make sure you are a team player and will be working for me rather than secretly against me.
Swarm grabs a mic of his own.
SWARM: I got no problem tagging with the monkey here. Let’s quck gabbing and start the match. Bring out our opponents.
MAGNUS: Oh, okay. Here they are.
The curtain opens and out steps…..
Swarm is visibly taken aback, but then holds the mic up to his mask and says…
The match is on! Father versus Son and it is out MAIN EVENT!!!
It was short and the FUTURE SHOCK team simply destroyed ULTRAMANTIS! And the end came with Swarm and Mantis in the ring.
SWARM & PRIME COLONIZER d. ULTRAMANTIS via pinfall when Swarm levels Mantis with an Exploder Suplex – **
Swarm looks down at his fallen son and kicks him out of the ring! He begins shouting at him.
SWARM: I offered you help and you turned away from me! I have desire to even be around you!
The crowd is booing loudly. UltraMantis Black helps Mantis away from ringside and Magnus climbs up into the ring. He’s got a big smile on his face and he reaches a hand out towards Swarm. Swarm takes it and shakes! The arena nearly implodes with boos!
The sight of Magnus, Swarm and Prime Colonizer standing in the ring is what we see as we…
FADE TO BLACK
