CARD 2131.287 – THE RECKONING – NIGHT 2
Live from Glacier Sound on Pluto!
Commentary: Trent Lawless
It’s time for the second night of THE RECKONING and tonight all eyes are focused on Turmoil and his INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP. There are some HUGE names competing tonight and it will be interesting to see who climbs the ladder to face Turmoil in the main event! All matches are NO DQ or COUNTOUT. The fans are ready for their first match and out first is the lowest ranked wrestler in the GWF (only because Plethador is out injured) Overtime! He’s accompanied by Lord Nexus. His opponent, Star Warrior (II) is out next, looking a little worse for wear, as has become the norm since 2131 began. The two men face off in the ring and here we go!
RANKING GAUNTLET MATCH ONE
Overtime d. Star Warrior (II) via pinfall after a Titan Tower Bomb – **1/2 – Overtime dominates in this one and hardly breaks a sweat putting Star Warrior (II) away.
Star Warrior (II) limps away from ringside as Magnus the Magnanimous appears leading Minister of War to the ring! Minister of War, having just returned from suspension, is grinning sadistically, from ear to ear. He climbs into the ring and is ready to go.
RANKING GAUNTLET MATCH TWO
Minister of War d. Overtime via submission with the Eye Cleaver – ***** – Overtime had the match won until Magnus smashed Overtime over the head with his briefcase when the ref wasn’t looking! Minister of War advances. Lord Nexus is not happy!
Overtime is helped to the back as Minister of War awaits his opponent. Being accompanied by Catfight and Dark Menace, it’s Darkest Justice. Magnus is whispering to Minister of War, no doubt telling him to punish Darkest Justice for not joining league with FUTURE SHOCK.
RANKING GAUNTLET MATCH THREE
Darkest Justice d. Minister of War via pinfall after SHOCK PROBATION – ***** – Another amazing match! Minister of War totally destroyed Darkest Justice for most of the match, but Justice was able to pull it out in the very end! It’ll be interesting to see how much he has left for his next opponent!
Darkest Justice advances, but Magnus is staying at ringside because his opponent will be…Prime Colonizer! Magnus is yelling at Prime Colonizer to destroy Darkest Justice. Darkest Justice is weak, but ready for the fight.
RANKING GAUNTLET MATCH FOUR
Prime Colonizer d. Darkest Justice via pinfall after a Voltaic Stunner – ***** – The five star matches are coming like candy right now! Prime Colonizer pulls off the win, but just barely. Darkest Justice threw everything he had at him. Magnus is overjoyed as Darkest Justice leaves ringside and Prime Colonizer advances!
Dark Menace remains ringside as the next wrestler out is Balaal! Balaal and Prime Colonizer were recently partners in that vicious attack on Plethador and were suspended, but thanks to the release of Wolf, their suspensions were dropped. Looks like their alliance is put aside for tonight as they prepare to go one on one!
RANKING GAUNTLET MATCH FIVE
Prime Colonizer d. Balaal via pinfall after Mandrill Power Bomb – **1/2 – This was a squeaker! Balaal came close to winning several times but Prime Colonizer fought him, and interference by Dark Menace off, to win the match and advance!
Balaal and Dark Menace slither away from ringside and that’s when things get interesting! Prime Colonizer’s opponent heads to the ring and it is Lope! Lope climbs into the ring ready to fight.
PRIME COLONIZER: Lope, you know I am your master! I want you to lie down for me and let me win.
Lope thinks about it for a moment, but then glances up to the banner of Turmoil holding the INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP and shakes his head.
PRIME COLONIZER: Fine. I’m game. Let’s fight!
The two allies circle each other and we are about to start, Prime Colonizer waves Magnus away from ringside so they can go one on one! This should be good!
RANKING GAUNTLET MATCH SIX
Prime Colonizer d. Lope via pinfall after three SIMINA SKULLCRUSHERS – **1/2 – Wow! It took three SIMIAN SKULLCRUSHERS in a row, but Prime Colonizer was finally able to put Lope down! Prime Colonizer is really looking worse for wear, but he is advancing. Lope slides out of the ring, but remains at ringside at the direction of Prime Colonizer.
Prime Colonizer stands in the ring waiting for his next opponent. He is now only two matches away from getting the INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP match, but that is a long way to go! His next opponent is out and it’s Perfect Specimen, accompanied by Lord Nexus!
RANKING GAUNTLET MATCH SEVEN
Perfect Specimen d. Prime Colonizer via pinfall after a springboard clothesline – *** – Prime Colonizer held on for as long as he could, but Perfect Specimen sent him packing. An amazing performance though and Prime Colonizer is on track to becoming the MVP for tonight, but there’s still more matches to go.
Prime Colonizer is helped to the back by Lope as Magnus the Magnanimous remains at ringside as Perfect Specemin’s opponent, Thantos (II) heads to the ring. The winner of this match will go on to face Turmoil for the INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP! Needless to say, the fans are squarely behind the Titan.
RANKING GAUNTLET MATCH EIGHT
Perfect Specimen d. Thantos (II) via pinfall after the Apex Neckbreaker – ** – Perfect Specimen dominates and knocks Thantos (II) out of the gauntlet and also dashes Magnus’ dreams of having a wrestler go for the gold. Perfect Specimen stands in the ring ready for his title shot!
The crowd is cheering loudly for the Titan as Turmoil heads to the ring with The Leveler. Turmoil looks focused and this should be a heck of a match!
INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Perfect Specimen d. Turmoil via pinfall after a corner backflip kick – ***** – The place goes insane! Perfect Specimen has defeated Turmoil and taken another belt away from the Gladiator camp! It was am amazing match that left both men bloodied!
Though he fought with everything he had, Turmoil leaves the ring in disgrace with The Leveler in tow. Perfect Specimen stands tall as Lord Nexus straps the INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP around his waist. Nitro hops into the ring for a word.
NITRO: How do you feel?
PERFECT SPECIMEN: This is the greatest feeling in the universe. And in my old universe. There ain’t nothing like it. People may make fun of da way I talk, they may make fun of my ego, but man, look who’s got the gold around their waist now!
The crowd cheers loudly and Perfect Specimen climbs the ropes and raises his arms as we…
FADE TO BLACK
INTERPLANETARY RANKING GAUNTLET MVP – Perfect Specimen – (3 Matches plus Title Win) – Prime Colonizer won three matches as well, but Perfect Specimen being ranked higher and winning the title, give the MVP to the Titan.
