2133.326 – DEIMOS PERENNIAL

Static.

An image flickers to life.

We are watching security footage from the alley behind the Deimos Intergalactic Arena.  A timestamp reads: DECEMBER 31, 2032 – 21:34 putting this footage during the closing moments of BIG BANG 2132.

A door opens and the roar of the crowd can be heard.  PANTHER WARRIOR steps out of the doorway with his gear bag over his shoulder and the newly won INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP of his other.  Behind him in the doorway is CATFIGHT.

CATFIGHT:  You sure you don’t want to wait?  The event is almost over.

PANTHER WARRIOR:  No, I’ll see you all on the carrier.  (He looks at the title slung over his shoulder.)  I just want some time to soak this all in.  Meditate a bit.

CATFIGHT (smiling):  Okay.  Congratulations.  See you soon.

PANTHER WARRIOR smiles at her as he lets the door close.  He takes a few steps forward and, again, looks at the title on his shoulder.  A smile creeps over his face, exposing his sharp incisors.  He looks up and suddenly a figure in black appears beside him and levels a gun at his temple.  There is a flash and PANTHER WARRIOR crumples to the ground.  The figure looks around and, confident he hasn’t been seen, he bends down and slides the INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP off of PANTHER WARRIOR’S lifeless body and strides away.  We watch PANTHER WARRIOR bleed out for a few seconds more before the feed cuts to black.

CARD #2133.326 – DEIMOS PERENNIAL – JANUARY 2133
Live from the Deimos Intergalactic Arena, Deimos

Commentary: Trent Lawless
Backstage/Ringside: Nitro

SLY DRURY appears with the rest of MARTIAL LAW.  The CROWD responds in kind.  He begins with comments on the shooting of PANTHER WARRIOR and says that INTERPLANETARY CHAMPION is currently in a stasis chamber in critical condition.  While the assailant is still on the loose, the INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP BELT arrived at GWF offices this morning in an unmarked package.  Tonight an eight man tournament to crown a new INTERPLANETARY CHAMPION.  Drury announces that one of the men will be himself.  Of course.

He also states that GALAXIAN CHAMPION Shayne has demanded a rematch against NOSFERA after the events of BIG BANG 2132.  That match will happen tonight.  He also announces that even though IRON HAND/EURITAR (II) is no longer on the MARTIAL LAW team, OVERTIME has replaced him and SECURITY SQUAD (II) are still the GALAXIAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS and they will defend the titles tonight.

FHANNA grabs the mic and announces she will wrestler ELINA for the GWF WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP tonight, but SLY DRURY immediately corrects her saying that it’ll be SCORN wrestling for the title tonight.  FHANNA is not happy, but DRURY informs her she will be wrestling the returning SHANN-RA.  FHANNA is still not happy.

SLY DRURY sends his team to the back and heads to the ring for the first match in the INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT.  His opponent…FALLER!

Totalis, the Tournament Master d. Disciple of Terror via pinfall after Title Quest – ** – TOTALIS impresses in the final match of the opening round. DISCIPLE OF TERROR had hoped this would be a display of power of FTR over GWFZ but that was not to be the case. TOTALIS advances.

Shann-Ra d. Fhanna via pinfall with AMUSCADE – *1/2 – SHANN-RA looks fantastic here. FHANNA came to ringside alone, SLY DRURY said he was too busy.

CASTILEX d. BURNING HELL via DQ when Burning Man hits Moog with a flaming chair – * – this match was booked by SLY DRURY to hopefully curry favor with CASTILEX. The big men looked impressive but this was a wild brawl from the opening bell. This feud is far from over.

We move into the SEMI-FINAL ROUND of the INTERPLANETARY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT.  The first match pits two members of the TITANS team against each other.

Witness d. Faller via pinfall after hitting PROSECUTION three times in a row – *1/2 – A competitive match here.  FALLER fought hard but was soon overcome by the more experienced wrestler.  To FALLER’S credit, it took WITNESS hitting his finisher three times in a row to put the big man away.  Both men shook hands before and after the match.  WITNESS advances to the finals.

Totalis, the Tournament Master d.

GWF WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP
Elina d. Scorn via pinfall after a missed turnbuckle charge – ***** – FHANNA accompanied SCORN to the ring but provided no encouragement at all.  ELINA picks up a solid victory over her former teammate.  After the match, SCORN and FHANNA got into a shoving match that was quickly broken up by security.  FHANNA stormed off.  Seems there is trouble in the ranks of the MARTIAL LAW women.

GALAXIAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
ULTIMATE FIGHTERS d. SECURITY SQUAD (II) via DQ when Code Enforcer cracks Shoot with his crowbar – **1/2 – The biggest takeaway from this match is that SECURITY SQUAD (II) is just as flagrant rule breakers as the original.  A brawl erupts after the bell, but SECURITY SQUAD (II) retain the titles.

GALAXIAN CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Shayne d. Nosfera via pinfall with SHOWDOWN after SHAYNE’S FURY three moves into the match – SQUASH – Wow!  SHAYNE gets his revenge for the attack after BIG BANG 2133, easily dispatching of Nosfera!  SHAYNE begins the year with a declarative win.

Despite his loss at the beginning of the night, SLY DRURY is beaming that MARTIAL LAW now holds three of the four titles!  MARTIAL LAW really does RUN THIS FED!

FADE TO BLACK
