CARD #2125.130 – THE RECKONING NIGHT 2 – 06.28.2125
From Deimos Intergalactic Arena, Deimos
A cruiser lands behind the arena. SWARM and PAYBACK exit. They see HECTOR and THANTOS (II) standing near a rear door talking and they cross to them.
HECTOR: Evening. (He returns to talking to THANTOS (II)) So make sure you do as much damage up front so that he…
HECTOR: What? We’re going over strategy here.
SWARM: Well Payback and I want to know who we’re wrestling tonight.
HECTOR: Ha. You two? No one.
HECTOR: What? Did you or did you not tell me you were going to ‘go all the way’ at THE RECKONING last night?
HECTOR: You did. And you FAILED!
SWARM: I kicked your ass.
HECTOR: Yes, because you had to! In order to get to the finals you had to beat me.
SWARM: Wait what?
HECTOR: Oh dear lord, you are all brawn aren’t you? It wasn’t ME who was supposed to go all the way to the finals, it was YOU! I told you that. You said you were going to do that and YOU FAILED! So the future of the plan is now out of our hands completely. I thought I’d be able to count on members of my OWN TEAM to get the job that needs to be done, done, But now I have to rely on others. So no Swarm, no Payback, you aren’t wrestling tonight! So why don’t you just get back onto that cruiser and go back to you hive and I will call when…and if…I need you.
SWARM and PAYBACK stand speechless.
HECTOR (to THANTOS (II)): Come on let’s go inside.
HECTOR and THANTOS (II) exit as SWARM and PAYBACK stand speechless.
PAYBACK (putting a hand on SWARM’S shoulder): Come on. Let’s go get a beer.
They walk off towards the cruiser as we cut down to ringside for our first match.
NON-FATAL SHOWDOWN MATCH #6
TURNBUCKLE SHOCK MATCH
Scimitar d. Plethador via pinfall after a cross body block. – ***1/2 – Scimitar tore into Plethador and got a decisive victory here tonight! He evened up the NON-FATAL CHALLENGE to three all! Harckening back to the Lepus Stun Rod these two had, neither man used the turnbuckles! Scimitar had a goal of breaking Plethador’s streak and he did it tonight! ABROZ and DIALECTUS announced that in addition to the two points Scimitar received for his victory, they also awarded him an additional two points for the decisiveness in which he won.
INFINITY CHALLENGE MATCH
STARS & STRIPES d. LEADERS OF THE PACK via countout after U.S. MALE hit PANTHER WARRIOR with a springboard moonsault and he was unable to get back in the ring. – ** – Decent match between these two teams. Crowd was disappointed that PANTHER WARRIOR was unable to make it back in the ring, but they were glad he’d shaken off the effects of that moonsault. DIALECTUS received 1 point for his team for this victory.
Coven Black d. Retribution via pinfall after the Rogue Revolver. – ** – After six months in the big time, Coven Black finally picks up his first win. Barely. Retribution had him close to losing several times. It will be very interesting to see how he fares in his next bout.
Symbiosis d. Thantos (II) via DQ when Thantos (II) took the action outside and refused to return to the ring. – DUD – Thantos (II) hit the ring like a man with a plan and started brawling with Symbiosis. The bell rang and immediately the action spilled outside where Thantos (II) refused to bring the action back in the ring. Security had to come out and separate the two after the bell.
MILKY WAY FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH
Havco d. Aethran Overmaster via pinfall after multiple powerbombs on the dressing room floor. – ****1/2 – Overmaster was returning from injury and it showed in this match. He never gained any momentum in this match. He delivered a few big moves but Havoc dominated this match.
INFINITY CHALLENGE WOMEN’S CUP FINALS
Deadliest d. She Devil via submission with PURIFICATION. – ***** – An amazing back and forth match. She-Devil looked good but Deadliest was one step ahead the entire match. Deadliest claims the INFINITY CHALLENGE WOMEN’S CUP for ABROZ’S team! She gets two points for the win, three points for the CUP and ABROZ and DIALECTUS decide to award both women two bonus points each for a fantastic match.
INFINITY CHALLENGE TAG TEAM CUP FINALS
LIFTOFF d. FRONTAL ASSAULT via pinfall when Mantis hit Thraxx with an amazing cross body block. – ** – Hokey smokes! Talk about the little team that could! Mantis and Tristan hit FRONTAL ASSAULT with everything they had! Made quick tags and kept the bigger team off balance the entire match! LIFTOFF captures the INFINITY CHALLENGE TAG TEAM CUP! They score three points for winning the cup, two points for winning the match and one bonus point for dominating! DIALECTUS gets a huge push from this win!
INFINITY CHALLENGE SINGLE’S CUP FINALS
Gryt d. Bloodline via pinfall with a cross body block. – ***** – A fantastic five star match! Bloodline was in top form, the ring rust of recent months was nowhere to be seen in this match and Gryt wrestled the match of his life. Rotunda was at ringside and, like the crowd, was so mesmerized by the action she didn’t get involved at all! In the end Gryt was able to pick up the win and take home the INFINITY CHALLENGE SINGLE’S CUP! Gryt score two points for the win, three points for the cup win and was awarded two bonus points for the victory! ABROZ and DIALECTUS awarded Bloodline one bonus point for his performance in this match.
This was the final INFINITY CHALLENGE match of the night and at then end the scores are…
DIALECTUS – 44
ABROZ – 43
DIALECTUS pulls ahead thanks to much needed cup wins tonight!
GWF WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Strafe d. Phantasy via pinfall after a Skyscraper Powerbomb. – *** – Strafe upsets Phantasy and becomes the NEW GWF WOMEN’S CHAMPION, ripping the title from COVERT OPERATIONS and putting it squarely in the GLADITOR’S camp! This won’t sit well with Dark Menace for sure, but all who saw this match had to admit, Strafe won it fair and square.
GWF INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP
TIRION TRIPLE THREAT MATCH
Bishop Hell (II) d. Patch and Tauran via pinfall when he hit Tauran with HELLFIRE and became the new GWF INTERPLANETARY CHAMPION. – **1/2 – A fun match that saw all three men dominating at different points. Bishop Hell (II) continues his…hot…streak in the fed, showing why he’s perhaps the the best of the 2125 newcomers.
GWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
ULTIMATE FIGHTER MATCH
ULTIMATE FIGHTERS d. THE GLADIATORS when Clinch made Rush tap out with the ground and pound. – ***** – A brutal match but the ULTIMATE FIGHTERS had the home field advantage and took home the win.
GWF GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Sly Drury d. Endgame via pinfall. – **** – Sly Drury surprised a lot of people with this match. The Security Squad was at ringside but didn’t get involved at all. The ref called the match right down the middle and Sly Drury just dominated Endgame. He proved to all he could win fair and square. After the closing bell though, his despicable side showed right through.
After the bell, Sly Drury signaled to the back and PAGANAX rang to ringside and began attacking ENDGAME! DRURY and his Security Squad left as PAGANAX laid into ENDGAME!
We cut to the back where HECTOR is watching the beatdown on the holoscreen. He takes out his communicator and punches in some numbers. We then cut to a bar on Andromeda. Music is thumping and the place is packed. SWARM and PAYBACK sit at the bar nursing two beers. Suddenly SWARM flinches and reaches for his communicator. He looks at the screen, shows it to PAYBACK who shakes his head. The get up and slip out a side door into an alleyway. The thumping music subsides a bit.
SWARM (answering and putting the communicator on speaker): Yeah?
HECTOR: Swarm? What is that…where are you?
SWARM: WHat do you want?
HECTOR: You see this beatdown Paganax is giving Endgame?
SWARM: No. Why would I care what Paganax is doing?
HECTOR: Why would you care? Because remember earlier when I said the plan was now in the hands of other people?
SWARM: I guess. Yeah.
HECTOR: Well, Paganax is now clearing the path for us to continue with the plan.
SWARM: Great. I’m way past the point of caring about this plan of yours.
HECTOR: Nice. Nice attitude. Well, you’d better change that attitude, because with Drury pinning Endgame and Pganax beating the tar out of Endgame. You’re up.
SWARM: I’m up? I’m up for what?
HECTOR: The next part of the plan.
SWARM: Which is…?
HECTOR: Swarm, it’s time for you to become GALAXIAN CHAMPION.
SWARM and PAYBACK look at each other.
HECTOR: Let’s just hope that like everything else, you don’t mess it up.
SWARM and PAYBACK still stare at each other as we…
