DF: “Welcome to tonight’s Main Event! I can’t think of a bigger main event to end this year”
JS: “In two short months Harvey Cross has risen to the dizzy heights in UHW but tonight proves to be his biggest task, he takes on FOUR hungry morons who want HIS belt!”
DF: “And all that inside of a ladder match, perhaps the most risqué and barbaric matches in wrestling history…something has to give here as a lot of personal grudges will be settled here, A LOT involving Harvey Cross and somebody else…like Damon James and Dragon but don’t forget Red Ninja’s claim as the SOLE number one contender AND Andy Lionheart’s seemingly lucky entrance into this match although I don’t believe in luck…”
JS: “Enough jibber jabber, let’s get this match started!”
The shot cuts to Ashley standing inside of the ring. Above her is the X-Rated Title belt suspended above the ring, on the outside are ladders set up against all sides of the ring against barriers; there is one ladder standing at the bottom of the rampway and a spotlight shines down on the centre of the ring, illuminating the title belt.
AJ: “Ladies and Gentlemen…WELCOME TO TONIGHT’S MAIN EVENT!!! Tonight’s contest is a 5-Man Ladder Match for the UHW X-Rated Championship! The winner will be the first man to climb the ladder and retrieve the belt from the suspended hook above the ring!”
The crowd erupts and they stand waiting. The arena lights change and the stage darkens as “Wolf and Raven” starts blasting throughout on the P.A system. Andy Lionheart walks out onto the stage as soon as the song starts, he stops at the top of the ramp and looks at the crowd then into the ring, after looking around he walks down to the ring and stands at the side for a couple of seconds before sliding in and running from side to side bouncing of the ropes twice and then stopping and looking out to the entrance waiting for his opponent.
AJ: “And introducing first, hailing from Kemi, Finland, he weighs in at 210lbs…he is The Protégé…Andy Lionheart!!!”
Andy acknowledges the fans as they cheer and shout for him; the focus then turns back to the stage.
DF: “Andy Lionheart has to be tonight’s dark horse, he is a great athlete, extremely talented and perhaps not the main focus for the champion here, tonight”
JS: “True but anyone who can capitalize in these type of matches always wins”
Damon James walks through the crowd with a boombox blaring "Absolute Power" by Tech N9ne. He walks threw the fans he hops the barricade while carrying his boombox. He then places the boombox on the commentator's table and turns it off. Damon then enters the ring and gets focused staring at Andy Lionheart before staring up at the X-Rated Title. Both men pace the ring as the crowd still cheer for both
AJ: “Introducing next, from Detroit, Michigan, he weighs in at 197lbs…he is “The Young Stunna”…DAMON JAMES!!!”
DF: “We have ONE legit fan hated guy in this match and he is the champion. Red Ninja is hot and cold with these fans so it’ll be interesting to see how the champion can handle being the sole figure of hatred in this match”
JS: “Do you think he cares? Stopping Dragon is his main priority”
“Darkness” starts playing it’s melodic chords, the vocals begin and the arena goes almost dark as the vocals kick in, Red Ninja slowly walks out onto the ramp and stares down at the ring, the chorus then blasts in and he charges down the ramp before sliding it, Damon and Andy back up abit and Ninja stares at both before pacing the ring awaiting his music to die down.
DF: “This man is the wildcard, the TRUE number one contender and perhaps a lethal individual”
JS: “But he still won’t stop Harvey Cross in his mission.”
AJ: “And thirdly, introducing a man from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, he weighs in at 220lbs…he is the “Notorious R-E-D”…RED NINJA!!!”
All three men stop and look up again at the X-Rated Title as the crowd falls silent. The focus turns to the stage once more, when suddenly the arena blacks out with white strobes across the stage as “Crisis” starts playing into the intro, the opening chords repeat like a siren beckoning the crowd in, the heavy drums and guitars start as the vocals kick in screaming, red and white lights then flash across the arena as Harvey walks out with a personalized band tee on, he looks across the arena and slowly walks down the ramp ignoring all the fans, until he meets a fan he particularly dislikes and starts trash talking with them, the song kicks into a new gear and he runs into the ring as referee Michael St. Clare tries to push all other three men back but Harvey ignores then and he paces the ring and looks at the fans with disgust before leaping onto the turnbuckle as the song hits a brief pause, he looks out with his arms up before leaping off as the song resume, he walks over to the opposite turnbuckle raising both arms with his chest proudly sticking out, he leaps off as the chorus sung by Dallas Green plays. He paces the ring as the red and white lights stop and only the white strobes remain on the stage, they then fly across the arena to Harvey who stands centre ring with his head down and his arms up, a breakdown in the song accompanies this before fading to silence and leaving the strobes on Harvey, he then flips his head up ready for his match as the arena lighting resumes to normality. Harvey then turns to Andy and slaps him in the face before backing up, he bumps into Red Ninja and bolts and drops and rolls out of the ring as he trash talks all three men. Damon James then starts climbing the turnbuckle looking down on him while trash talking.
AJ: “And introducing the UHW X-Rated Champion! He hails from Detroit, Michigan and he weighs in at 240lbs…he is…HARVEY CROSS!!!”
DF: “What arrogance! He slaps Andy Lionheart, he bolts from Red Ninja and he still runs his mouth on the outside!”
JS: “So what?! He’s the champion, he can do whatever he wants!”
Harvey then slowly steps up on the apron and holds his hands out in defence, Damon James then steps down and gets face to face with Harvey while standing on the inside of the ring, Harvey on the outside of the apron then pushes him and James goes flying into Red Ninja who turns and decks Damon James, Lionheart then turns Ninja and protests with him but he gets dropped with a Roaring Elbow for his troubles, Harvey then drops down laughing and walks to the bottom of the ramp, he climbs the ladder and sits at the top as he stares at the ramp with a possessed and determined look on his face. He then starts shouting…
Harvey: “Along came a spider, his name was Dragy-O, he came to the ring and I destroyed that fucker so”
DF: “Has he lost his mind?!”
The lights in the arena then suddenly cut out as the heavy bass-line from Tool’s Forty Six & 2 begins to play. Red lights begin to flash and thunder rolls, almost shaking the arena. The crowd get on their feet as the red lightning illuminates the entire arena. The thunder is loud, but not loud enough to drown out the music.
Shedding skin and
The stage slowly begins to glow red
I've been picking
The ramp this time, illuminating in a red eerie glow
Finally the ring begins to glow
My old muscles
Looking for a clue.
Harvey stares intently as he awaits Dragon but nothing, he looks confused as the fans make a huge “Dragon” chant.
AJ: “And finally introducing, from Portsmouth, England, he weighs in at 249lbs…he is… “MR UH F’N W”…DRAGON!!!”
Harvey then stands on the ladder and looks out but Dragon still doesn’t come, meanwhile in the ring, all three men are still brawling away. Suddenly a cheer comes from the crowd and Harvey looks around but it’s too late, Dragon leaps out from the side by the ramp and grabs the ladder, he then pushes it and Harvey is flung into the crowd as fans dodge him, he then lands on a whole mess of chairs and lies there not moving as the crowd erupts. Ashley Jackson escapes the ring as Dragon slides in and starts dropping anything that moves
Crowd: “LET’S GO DRAGON! LET’S GO DRAGON!”
He takes Ninja down with a Roundhouse Kick and throws him over the top rope, Damon James runs at him but Dragon ducks a clothesline and nails a shuffle sidekick. Lionheart backs up but bolts and takes Dragon down with a clothesline but he nips back up and scoop slams Andy who rolls to the outside, Dragon then screams out and holds his arms out in the Hardcore Heathen pose as the crowd goes maniacal.
DF: “DRAGON JUST TOOK EVERYONE OUT! DRAGON HAS KILLED HARVEY CROSS! OH MY GOD!!”
JS: “WHATS THAT BASTARD DOING?! HAS HE LOST HIS MIND?!”
Dragon looks around and misses Red Ninja who rolls back in and runs at Dragon, he then takes him down with an almighty Red on Impact spear. Dragon goes a little limp and Ninja looks around, he rolls out of the ring and pulls up a ladder, he then slides it in the ring and rolls in after but Damon James is back up, he kicks Ninja in the gut and leaps up and lands a beautiful looking Flip Off as the crowd gasps and cheers. He stands and sets the ladder up in the centre of the ring and begins climbing it but Andy Lionheart is on the turnbuckle, the crowd pops and he leaps off and hits the Atonement right onto Damon who is on the ladder, both men then crash to the mat as the crowd turns into a near riot screaming and shouting.
DF: “Each man has hit their signature move tonight! All except Harvey Cross who is still in the crowd!”
The shot then cuts to where Harvey Cross landed but he’s not there, the shot then cuts to various angles around the ring but he has disappeared. The crowd notice and start booing as Harvey then walks down the ramp holding his ribs with a busted open forehead. He has a barbed wire bat in hand and he is staring directly at Dragon.
JS: “THERE HE IS! HE’S AFTER DRAGON!”
Dragon kneels up and spots Harvey entering the ring, Cross slams the barbed wire bat down onto the mat as Dragon rolls away, Ninja turns Cross but he swings the bat and clocks him across the forehead as the crowd gasps, Lionheart stands and is struck in the midsection while Dragon stands and turns Cross, he grabs the bat and pulls it away as Harvey bolts from the ring, he slides down and stands on the outside looking up at Dragon, who slowly climbs the ladder still set up in the centre of the ring, he holds the bat out and invites Harvey to stop him. Cross looks up at the belt and panics, meanwhile Damon is on the mat outside of the ropes, he then leaps onto the and springboards off he lands on the ladders opposite Dragon who stares at him, he swings the bat but Damon ducks and Harvey rolls into the ring, he then pushes the ladders over and both Dragon and Damon James fall down out of the ring on the mat with a thunderous thud!
Crowd: “Holy Shit! Holy Shit!”
Harvey grins and dusts his hands off but Lionheart turns him around and kicks him in the gut, connecting with an even flow DDT. Harvey crashes and rolls to his side, Lionheart then stands and pulls the ladder back up from resting on the top rope, he then places in centre of the ring, he glares up at the title but Harvey stands up and pushes Andy into the ropes, he comes back and ducks a forearm from Cross, he then reaches back for a neckbreaker but Harvey Cross reverses and twists his body so both are now facing each other, he breaks the arm lock and kicks Andy in the gut, he then smashes his knee in his gut before hooking both arms and lifting him up, he then drops him on his back with a powerbomb, Harvey then stands and guards the ladders as Red Ninja pulls himself up, he wipes blood from his forehead and charges down Harvey, both men fall to the mat and start frantically exchanging lefts and rights as they roll out of the ring and land next to Dragon and Damon who are slowly pulling themselves up.
DF: “We haven’t had a chance to say much because this match is too action packed. I can’t even begin to guess who will be victorious in this match!”
JS: “I can’t believe some of the spots we have seen so far in this match! I just hope my boy; Harvey Cross can come out of this match the winner!”
Ninja pushes Harvey’s face into the mat and grabs his head before cracking him face first into the mat, Red wipes some more blood from his forehead and gets up from the mat, he kicks Cross in the ribs and turns to Damon James, he then grabs him and whips him into the announce table, he smashes his face off the top of the table and leaves him, he turns and Dragon cracks him in the jaw with a superkick sending him crashing to the floor, Dragon then grabs a sledgehammer from under the ring and glares at it before turning his attentions to Harvey Cross on the floor, he raises the sledgehammer when Andy Lionheart leaps onto the turnbuckle, he then leaps off with a Whisper in the Wind, taking Dragon down in a heap. Harvey pulls himself up and wipes his brow, he then stands and walks over to Damon and Ninja, he pulls Red Ninja off the table and climbs up it himself, he pulls Damon James up and kicks him in the gut as Josh and Denzel scarper
DF: “What’s he going to do now?!”
JS: “I don’t know but I’d stand back if I were you!!!”
He pulls Damon in and goes for the Side Effect but James powers up and starts laying into the skull of Harvey, he then hooks him in a front face lock and moves to near the edge of the table, he then nails a snap suplex right onto the table but it does not break, Damon then rolls off as Dragon and Lionheart stand, they look at each other and Andy then climbs up onto the ring apron, he then climbs the turnbuckle as Dragon holds Harvey down by the feet, Damon then holds him down by the shoulders as Andy raises his arms
Crowd: “FUCK HIM UP! FUCK HIM UP!”
DF: “Dragon, Damon James and Andy Lionheart are all working together to take down Harvey Cross!!!”
JS: “THIS ISN’T FAIR!”
Andy Lionheart then holds his arms out and then leaps up and starts rotating, he then lands after the 450, splashing right onto Harvey Cross. Both men then collapse and crash through the table as it buckles and breaks underneath them. Andy bounces off and rolls aside clutching his stomach as Harvey lies motionless and his eyes flickering. Damon shouts and high fives Dragon who duly lifts him up and drops him with a Spinebuster down onto the mat. He then stands and slides back in the ring but Red Ninja pulls himself up and follows him in. They both stand at the same time and start exchanging martial arts kicks to the legs, Red Ninja gains the advantage and lays into Dragon with forearm shots but Dragon comes back with his own elbow strikes, they then separate and regain their breath before locking up in the centre of the ring. Dragon swivels around and tries for a German Suplex but Ninja strikes back with some reverse elbows and he spins around Dragon and connects with his own German Suplex, he keeps his hands clasped and stands with Dragon still in front, he then clubs him across the back and hooks both arms and stretches back landing a lovely Tiger Suplex, this time he releases and stands before leaning down to Dragon and dropping knees across his chest. He then kicks Dragon out of the ring and starts walking to the ladders, he slowly begins to climb as Andy Lionheart and Damon climb up the ring apron side by side. Damon James pushes Andy away and quickly slides in, he runs to the ladders and climbs up catching up with Ninja who reaches the top and starts reaching up for the X-Rated Title. Lionheart slides in and climbs in under Red Ninja, he then hoists Ninja onto his shoulders and looks around as Damon hooks Ninja around the neck, he clubs him across the back and hooks the neck as Andy hoists Ninja up further in an Electric Chair position, he then looks back and leaps off with the Electric Chair Drop which in turn flings Damon over with his arm still hooked around Red Ninja’s neck. All three men collapse and remain on the mat writhing in pain as Dragon stares in from the outside. He takes a deep breath and stands up on the outside, he lifts the ring apron up and pulls out a table and struggles to slide it in before eventually getting it in the ring. He then paces the ring catching his breath, while in the ring, Andy Lionheart stands and starts setting the table up to Dragon’s surprise. Damon James sits up in the corner breathing heavily and Red Ninja is still on the mat by the ropes with his eyes still flickering.
DF: “All of these men are going to kill each other, Josh!”
JS: “I know! This is great!”
Dragon then pulls out a second ladder and signals to Lionheart who nods, he then slides that in and Andy sets it up by the first table so they’re side by side across the length of the ring. Dragon then slides in and pulls Red Ninja up; he tosses him to Lionheart before walking over to Damon James, pulling him up. Both Dragon and Lionheart then stand in front of a table each and look at each other as the flashbulbs pop and the crowd goes nuts. Dragon kicks Ninja in the gut and lifts him up, Andy grabs Damon around the waist and spins, and they both then send their opponents crashing through the tables, Dragon with a double underhook sit-down powerbomb and Andy Lionheart with a spinebuster. The crowd erupts as Dragon and Andy leap up high fiving once again. They turn and scream to the fans before turning to each other, they then both try and hit a superkick and miss each other with their legs brushing past each of their faces. They then back off each other smiling wryly. They then kicks the broken tables out of the ring, before Dragon sets down and invites Andy on and they lock up amidst frenzy from the crowd. Dragon grabs Andy’s wrist and whips him off into the ropes, Andy comes back and Dragon smashes his back onto his knee with a nice tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Dragon then kneels up and looks up at the title belt; he then pushes the ladder back to the centre of the ring. He slowly starts to climb it seeing Harvey, Ninja, Damon and Lionheart all lying around. Harvey peers into the ring and see’s Dragon halfway up the ladder, Harvey suddenly sits up and clambers to the ring apron, he pulls himself in and leaps at the ladder knocking it but not knocking it over. Dragon hangs on as Harvey slowly and clumsily climbs up beneath him. Dragon starts kicking down onto Harvey’s head but he keeps coming and this time grabs his foot. He pulls Dragon down a few rungs but Dragon kicks him in the face, Harvey falls to the mat and lays on his back, he then grabs the foot of the ladder and tries lifting it up but can only succeed in rocking it, he then kneels up and pushes the ladder further but to no avail.
DF: “He’ll stop at nothing to stop Dragon from grabbing that belt”
JS: “So he should. Dragon is past it!”
DF: “Don’t be so stupid. Dragon is still one of the best in UHW. Period”
Andy Lionheart clambers up and tries to climb the ladder as Dragon gets his hands all over the X-Rated Title. Harvey slowly stands and starts rocking the ladders but Dragon hooks his legs in the top rung of the ladder. Harvey Cross then pulls the ladders across the ring and sits the bottom of the ladder on top of the top turnbuckle pad. Dragon looses his legs and keeps a grip on the hook holding the X-Rated Title. Andy Lionheart starts pulling on Dragon’s foot, he wrenches harder but to no avail, Dragon is relentless. Ninja sits up and kneels up looking up at Dragon, his eyes light up and he pulls himself up, Harvey walks over to Dragon’s feet and starts pulling down too, finally Harvey and Andy Lionheart then yank him down once more and he collapses back first on the mat. Harvey then runs and leaps up Andy, smashing him with an almighty Enzuigiri out of nowhere. Andy collapses to the floor, and Harvey Cross stands, he holds his arms out and lowers his head as the fans boo madly, they turn to cheers, though when Ninja clubs him from behind before turning him fast, he then lifts him up and drops with a Brainbuster to Harvey. Red Ninja then stands surveys the ring, he then walks over to Andy Lionheart and pulls him up, he hooks him up and smashes him down onto his shoulders with a Liger Bomb, Ninja rolls to his side from the sit-out position and stands up. He kicks Andy in the gut and screams out, he then grabs the ladders from the corner and sets them up right, he places them near the centre and walks over to the ropes and rolls out. In the ring Damon James stands up and pulls the ladders closer to the centre, he winks at the fans and starts climbing the ladders as Red Ninja lifts up more ladders on the outside, he turns and sees Damon and quickly throws the ladders into the ring, he slides in after and climbs the other ladders with Damon, he quickly climbs them and starts exchanging lefts and rights with Damon. Harvey Cross sits up and grabs the other Ladders and sets them up next to Damon James and Red Ninja.
DF: “Damon James played possum, Red Ninja had other plans and Harvey Cross will stop at nothing to retain his title, especially now Dragon is incapacitated on the mat”
JS: “It’s almost hard to keep up, huh?”
DF: “Damn right. This match is getting better and better, it’s just a matter of time, though before something has to give”
Harvey climbs up next to Red Ninja and grabs the back of his head; he smashes it off the ladder before tossing him from the top of the ladder down to the mat. He then leaps to the other set of ladders and stands in front of Damon James, they then start exchanging lefts and rights and the ladder begins teetering. They balance the ladders and Damon suddenly leaps over with a sunset flip, he then yanks Harvey down with a huge powerbomb from the ladders. The crowd erupts as Damon then sits up and starts’ climbing the ladders just as Dragon is jolted by the powerbomb impact. Andy Lionheart sits up against the bottom rope and tries to pull himself up, Dragon pulls Damon down from the ladders and Andy pushes the ladders over, one after the other. Dragon whips Damon James in the corner and runs at him with a clothesline but James ducks it and pushes Dragon in the corner. He then hits him with some shoulder thrusts. Dragon doubles over but Damon connects with more shoulder thrusts. Andy Lionheart then walks over and pulls Damon off Dragon and then starts laying into him with some kicks to his gut, then pulls Dragon out of the corner and leaps onto the top turnbuckle pad, he then leaps off as Dragon turns and hits a Dragonrana. Instead of pinning him, Andy leaps up and turns to Damon who stands there applauding him. Damon then picks Red Ninja up and hits him in the face with a high knee. He then turns and leaps onto the top turnbuckle pad and leaps off as Ninja staggers around and turns, he then connects with his own Diving Hurracanrana. Damon James then stands up as Andy shrugs and pulls Dragon up; he quickly turns him and hits a Reverse Hurracanrana. Damon James then rolls his eyes and looks down on Red Ninja…he then leaps up and lands a standing moonsault while the crowd applaud and cheer.
DF: “THEY’RE DUELLING!”
JS: “I can NOT believe what I am seeing!”
Meanwhile Harvey is outside of the ring clutching a steel chair, he then slides in as Andy Lionheart and Damon James stare at each other, Andy then looks down on Dragon thinking of his next move but Harvey swings the chair hard and drops Damon James with a vicious chair shot to the head, Andy looks up and sees nothing but a Steel Chair and he is dropped with an equally vicious chair shot to the face. Harvey then stands around and looks down on Dragon and Red Ninja…he growls and raises the chair and smashes it down on Red Ninja’s body, the sound is deafening and the crowd goes silent as Damon James rolls out of the ring and drops to the mat outside with blood pouring down his forehead and down his nose. Andy Lionheart is crawling towards the corner of the ring and sits up against the bottom turnbuckle pad, also bleeding from the forehead. Harvey then pushes Red Ninja out of the ring with his feet and then turns to Dragon with a sick look on his face. He tosses the chair aside and leans down and pulls Dragon up. Harvey then hits him with an uppercut, he pushes him into the ropes and whips him off into the opposite ropes, Dragon returns and Harvey locks him into a headlock, he then relinquishes a little and drops him with a STO-Backbreaker. He pulls Dragon back up and connects with an impact Side Effect. He stands up and looks down on Dragon before looking up at the title, he looks back down at Dragon and picks him up before tossing him over the top rope to the outside by the bottom of the ramp way. He then drops and rolls out of the ring and drags him up the ramp…
DF: “Harvey is abandoning this match! He is in prime position to take back his title but he would rather hurt and maim Dragon!”
JS: “Don’t you listen?! This was Harvey’s mission all along!”
In the ring, Ninja, Damon and Lionheart crawl around with dried blood on their foreheads. Harvey pulls Dragon up the ramp further towards the UHWTron set which is made of a Wall of flattened ladders, which is sort of like a scaffold design. Harvey stands at the top of the stage and looks around as Dragon crawls towards him looking pissed off. Harvey then walks through the entranceway and disappears for a few seconds before he appears again dragging out a dumpster full of weapons. The crowd gasps and cheers as he pulls the dumpster lid back and opens it completely. Harvey pulls out a steel chair wrapped in barbed wire and tosses it aside; he then pulls out a trashcan full of street signs and 4x4’s. Harvey also and finally reaches in and yanks our a coil of barbed wire and takes it to Dragon, he stomps Dragon down and then reaches down and places the barbed wire coil on top of his head like a crown. Harvey then slaps him and starts shouting at him…
Harvey: “YOU’RE THE HARDCORE HEATHEN?! THE GOD OF UHW?! MR UH FUCKING W?! LOOK HOW GREAT YOU LOOK NOW, DRAGON, LOOK AT YOURSELF!!!”
Harvey then reaches into the dumpster and pulls out a 5ft by 3ft mirror and then shockingly smashes it over Dragons head as the crowd gasps in disgust. Harvey then stands with his arms out; he lowers his head breathing deeply with a sick grin on his face. He then spits on Dragon and starts kicking him in.
DF: “STOP THAT VILE MAN…NOW!”
JS: “WHY!? DRAGON NEEDS TO LEARN WHEN TO STOP, WHEN TO SHUT UP AND WHEN TO KEEP HIS NOSE OUT!”
DF: “BUT A MIRROR OFF THE HEAD?! A CROWN OF BARBED WIRE?! THIS IS SICKENING, THIS IS ABSOLUTELY SICK!”
JS: “GOOD! DRAGON WILL BE FOREVER SCARRED BY THAT CROWN AND HE WILL FORVER REMEMBER AND FEAR HARVEY CROSS! STOP BEING SUCH A PUSSY ABOUT THIS!”
DF: “IT’S NOT RIGHT, GOD FUCKING DAMMIT!”
Meanwhile, back in the ring, Andy Lionheart stands slowly and looks at the stage in shock, he turns to Damon James pulling himself up using the ropes, and Red Ninja is in the corner stood and catching his breath. All three men then step towards the centre of the ring and all three stand around the ladders, which are collapsed on the mats. Damon kicks the ladders closest to him out of the ring and Red Ninja does the same, so all three men remain with no weapons or ladders inside of the ring with them, they then begin pacing around each other. Red Ninja runs up at Damon James and takes him down with an Axe Kick. Andy turns Ninja and lifts him up and takes him down with a snapmare, he then kicks him on the spine and turns to Damon who has lept back up, James then connects with an Enzuigiri taking him down to the mat also, Damon stands and pulls Red Ninja up to his feet, he then whips him off into the ropes and ducks down, Red leaps over James’ back and runs off the opposite ropes as Andy stands by Damon, both then take Red Ninja down with a flapjack upon return. Both stand and turn to each other with Andy quicker to the punch connecting with a majestic dropsault. He nips up and pulls Red Ninja to his feet and whips him into the corner, He runs after and leaps up with a high knee to his face, Lionheart then hoists Ninja onto the top turnbuckle pad and climbs up after. He goes for a Superplex but Damon James stands up and gets in between Andy Lionheart’s legs and pulls him back with an Electric Chair drop, Andy pulls Ninja over with a superplex also and all three men crash to the mat
Crowd: “UHW! UHW! UHW! UHW! UHW!”
DF: “All three men are down and meanwhile, Harvey is still punishing Dragon!”
JS: “Yeah, that’s right…Dragon’s been a very naughty boy!”
DF: “You concern me…”
Back on the stage Harvey has tied one of Dragon’s wrists to the ladder’ed set with a rope. He pulls out a trashcan lid and smashes it off Dragon’s forehead. Dragon pulls frantically at the rope loosening it a little but Harvey reaches into the trashcan and pulls out a “SOP” sign, he lifts it up and drives it down but Dragon dodges out of the way but his wrist pulls him back, Dragon then kicks Harvey in the gut over and over but Cross backs up and regains his breath. Dragon then frantically tries to untie the rope but Harvey runs at him and leaps up with a high knee to the face, Dragon’s face drops and Harvey begins chopping him with several Mongolian Chops to his shoulder and head. Harvey then backs off as he checks his hand, which bleeds from the barbed wire crown. Cross then pulls the crown off and spits in Dragon’s face before tossing the crown aside. Dragon lowers his head as Harvey turns to the dumpster once more and pulls out a kendo stick, he then starts striking Dragon across the body and legs when suddenly Dragon spits out a black mist straight into Harvey’s eyes, Cross begins staggering as Dragon unties himself slowly. Harvey turns and is blinded completely, he then staggers to the edge of the stage which overlooks a production box and a couple of tables, Harvey teeters precariously as Dragon watches his wrist, unravelling the rope…Harvey then slips and drops back and falls through the production box as an almighty bang resounds throughout the arena. Sparks fly and the lights flicker as Harvey is seen lying unconscious in a rubble of wood and bent metal.
DF: “OH MY GOD!!! DRAGON HAS DAMN NEAR KILLED HARVEY CROSS! HARVEY CROSS IS NOT MOVING AND THE ARENA LIGHTS JUST WENT HAYWIRE!!! GET THE GOD DAMN EMTS!!! GET THE EMTS!!!”
JS: “ARREST THAT MAN! ARREST HIM! THAT’S ATTEMPTED MURDER!!!”
Dragon finally unties himself and slowly staggers over to the edge, he looks down and closes his eyes as blood slowly drips from his forehead down his face, and he holds his arms out and lifts his head screaming. He then turns and shoots a glance over to the crowd and he walks over towards it. He puts it on and staggers around on the stage, wiping blood from his forehead. Meanwhile several EMT’s are seeing to Harvey Cross with Kid Matthews there with him looking extremely worried. He looks up at Dragon and mouths: “Damn you” as EMT’s load Harvey onto a stretcher.
DF: “Right now our main concern is the safety of Harvey. He might be an almighty dick but no-one deserves that”
JS: “You’re damn right they don’t. Dragon NEEDs to be arrested!”
Back in the ring, Red Ninja is crawling up the ropes staring at the stage in shock, he grins though and stands up as Andy Lionheart bears down on him. Andy pulls him up and whips him into the ropes, Red comes back and Andy hits a spinning heel kick. Damon James leaps from his corner and takes Andy down with a high knee followed by an elbow to his face. Back on the stage, Harvey is being wheeled to the back as Dragon slowly crawls down the ramp. Andy is thrown over the top rope by Damon who turns to Red Ninja but is caught with a forearm shot to the jaw, James staggers around and turns into Ninja who kicks him in the gut and hooks his leg, lifting him, he then drops him down with a Cradle Shock, Red Ninja then stands and slowly walks to the corner, he climbs it and turns to the ring and holds his arms up. He then turns his back and leaps back, twisting with a Corkscrew Moonsault onto Damon, Red sits up clutching his gut and looks around as Andy slides back in, he runs and hits Ninja with a front dropkick to his chest, knocking him down onto his back. Lionheart stands up and pulls Red Ninja to the ropes, he clutches his wrists and whips him off, Ninja hops over Damon and comes back leaping with a high kick but Andy ducks it and swivels around facing Red’s back, he turns him and Ninja runs but Andy hoists him and spins smashing him down onto Damon James gut with an Arn Anderson-esque Spinebuster. Andy then leaps up screaming as he glares just at the UHW X-Rated Championship. Meanwhile Dragon has reached the bottom of the ramp and searches under the ring unbeknownst to the rest of the guys left in the match. Ninja climbs out on the side of the ring and grabs a ladder, he throws it in the ring and slides in after, and he stands up and hoists the ladder into the corner, like a ramp. He turns to Andy who stands and flapjacks him onto the ladders, Damon stands up and kicks Ninja in the gut, he then turns him and runs behind him, bulldogging him onto the ladder. Damon then runs the rest of the way up the ladders and turns to face in the ring, he then leaps off at Andy and hits a diving hurracanrana. He stands again as Dragon slowly hoists himself in the ring once more, he crawls as Damon walks over and stands him up, he then pushes him to the corner and leaves him there, walking back over to Ninja who lies on the ladders, he peels him off and then whips him into the corner onto Dragon . . .Damon then runs and hits a clothesline and pushes Ninja away, he grabs Dragon and power whips him over to the ladders but Dragon leaps onto the top of the ladders, he then turns and leaps off as Ninja and Damon walk to the centre of the ring, Dragon then leaps off at them with both forearms flying out, he takes them both down as the crowd shouts and screams.
DF: “Dragon is back in this match! With Harvey out of this match, I believe Dragon now has found a second wind, even a third wind, he is on a roll”
JS: “Whatever. Harvey will be back. I know it”
Dragon stands and grabs the ladders, he runs at a standing Damon and takes him down with a ladder shot to the head, Ninja turns and ducks the ladder and grabs Dragon, reaching back hitting a neckbreaker. Dragon grips his neck, sits up and tries to stand but the ladders are on his chest, Ninja stomps down on the ladders and kicks them off. Andy Lionheart then comes back in the match and tosses Red Ninja over the top ropes. He then pulls the ladders up and sets them up in the centre of the ring, he places one side of the ladders over Dragon’s neck, locking him in and he then starts climbing glaring up at the X-Rated Title. He starts climbing as Red Ninja slides back in and starts climbing up on the opposite side, Damon James slowly climbs up the turnbuckle as Red Ninja tries pushing Lionheart off but Andy keeps a grip on the ladders and he pushes Ninja down who falls onto his back and rolls out of the ring. Damon James then stands on the top turnbuckle pad, he leaps off and spears down Andy Lionheart, they crash to the mat as Dragon pushes the ladders off him and they land top first on the top rope. Ninja stands up and adjusts the ladder back in the centre of the ring, Dragon stands and grabs Red from behind and smashes him head first off the corner of the ladder steps. He then whips him in the ropes next to the ladders and kicks him in the gut upon return, Dragon then wrenches his gut and hits a Gutwrench Suplex right into the ladders, they then collapse and buckle as Ninja flops to the mat, the ladders then land over Damon James and Andy Lionheart who cover up and desperately crawl from under the ladders. Dragon then paces the ring and pushes the ladders off Damon and Andy, he then pulls Damon up and throws him over the top rope, he drops and rolls out of the ring and drags Damon to the barrier, he then grabs another ladder and sets it up against Damon James’ chest, he then calls for the crowd:
Dragon: “I NEED A WEAPON!!”
Dragon then spots a fan wielding an Al Snow replicated “Head” he grins and grabs it and smashes it a few times off Damon’s head, he then climbs up on the apron and leaps off kicking the Ladders so the top smashes into Damon’s throat. James immediately drops to the floor as the crowd’s gasps; he starts coughing and spluttering with blood spraying out. He then drops and rolls away as Dragon surveys the damage. He holds his arms up and rolls back in the ring as Andy stands shaking his head, Dragon sneers and runs dropping him with a clothesline but Lionheart sits back up and takes him down with his own deep arm drag, Dragon nips up and ducks a clothesline, Andy turns and kicks Dragon in the gut and runs behind him before coming back and hitting a throwback onto the broken ladder. Dragon bounces off and lands on his back with a small cut flowing blood just on the bridge of his nose. Lionheart grins and looks up at the X-Rated Championship. Andy sees Ninja moving and picks the broken ladders and removes them from the ring and tosses them by the announce table. Dragon crawls to the corner and Damon James remains choking and coughing on the outside with a referee checking on him. Andy slides out and reaches under the ring, he pulls out another table, and he slides it in before repeating the process with two other tables. Ninja stands and climbs out on the other side of the ring, he then slides in three more ladders as the crowd screams. Dragon stands in the ring and shrugs, he sets up the two ladders adjacent to each other before setting up the tables in the middle of them, he then piles the two tables on top of the bottom table creating a tower of three tables in between two ladders. Andy stands by the announce table looking up annoyed as Dragon used his tables; Ninja is the same on the side of the ring. Andy slides in but Dragon tosses him back out by Ninja, he walks past the table/ladders in the centre of the ring and runs back at the ropes and dives through the middle ropes taking both men down with a diving attack. Dragon stands up and surveys both men before looking over at the other side; he spots Damon James pulling himself up with dried blood all around his mouth. Dragon wipes the blood from his nose and takes a moment to survey everyone’s bloodied faces and bodies.
DF: “This has been a bloody battle, this has to end somewhere!”
JS: “I don’t know when and where but this match will end and every single one of these guys will never be the same again!”
DF: “Folks, we’re getting news on Harvey Cross. He is talking, he is standing and right now Kid Matthews and management are trying to convince him to go to a local hospital, we wish him a speedy recovery”
Dragon pulls Andy Lionheart up and smashes him head first off the ring apron and he drops back down. Red Ninja kneels up but Dragon leaps up and hits a Pele kick onto his head, the crowd cheers and gasps as Dragon stands back up, he slides in the ring and looks up to the X-Rated Title. Damon James then stands up on the outside; he looks at Dragon and screams with blood dripping from his lips.
Dragon walks over and climbs out of the ring and he and James start exchanging a flurry of left’s and rights. Damon takes control and whips Dragon into the steel post. Dragon clutches his shoulder and turns to James who then kicks him in the gut, Damon then lifts him up vertically he then drops him into a vicious Brainbuster Jawbreaker. Dragon goes limp and lies on the mat but Damon isn’t done, he pulls Dragon into a seated position and backs up, he then kicks him hard in the chest sending him back down. Meanwhile, Andy Lionheart staggers around to those two men, he turns Damon around and he kicks him but Damon screams once more and fights back relentlessly, and pushes Andy over the barrier, he then pulls a steel chair from under the ring but doesn’t use it as Andy climbs onto the barrier and leaps off but Damon sidesteps him and smashes the chair off his head stopping him dead in mid-air. James then drops the chair and he pulls Andy up, he positions by the chair and hits the Flip-Off right onto the chair as the crowd gasps. Andy Lionheart goes limp and is seemingly knocked out. Damon James stands up and holds his arms out before beating his chest to a wild crowd reception.
DF: “DAMON JAMES JUST BROKE HIS NECK! OH MY GOD!!!”
JS: “WHAT A MOVE!!!”
Crowd: “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!”
Damon stands up as Dragon sits against the steel steps. Andy Lionheart slowly rolls away but drops still once more as he grabs his neck, his face still he lays looking upwards with a glazed look in his eyes. Dragon looks at him before looking up at Damon in time to be smashed with the chair across the head. Dragons head flops back on the steps. Red Ninja appears on the other side; he then pulls a sledgehammer from under the ring as the crowd erupts. He then staggers over to Damon who holds the chair up in defence. They meet in front of the broken announce table and Ninja swings the Hammer at the chair, knocking it out of Damon’s hands, he then connects with a swift and brutal Sledgehammer shot to his head knocking him down, Ninja then drops down to his knees taking the hammer once more to his gut, he then places it aside and slaps Damon across the cheeks as he lies motionless, his eyes closed. Red Ninja then walks around the ring and grabs another Ladder; he slides it in the ring and goes in after.
DF: “Red Ninja is the last man standing, Lionheart is out, and I hear he has a stinger. Damon doesn’t look too clever and Dragon is still reeling by the steel steps.”
JS: “This match is over”
Ninja takes the ladder and sets it up under the X-Rated Title, just by the Table/Ladder construction. He then slowly starts climbing as the crowd anticipate this match’s end, they applaud and cheer when suddenly Dragon looks in from a seated position against the steps, he shakes his head and growls before clambering in the ring, he crawls to the ladders, Ninja spots him and looks down in disgust. He then speeds up but Dragon finds himself half-way up the ladders and starts grabbing Ninja’s boots, he pulls him down a few notches and they meet in the middle throwing fists and kicks, they both then start climbing and reach the top.
DF: “Dragon is back! We’ve learnt to never count that man out! This match is now in the balance. Dragon or Red Ninja! Cos Damon still hasn’t moved and Andy is slow to react on the outside”
JS: “COME ON NINJA! STOP THAT HEATHEN!”
Dragon tries to push Ninja off the ladders through the tables but Red holds on for dear life. Dragon then slips as Red Ninja reaches up slowly, his finger tips slip and flicker over the X-Rated Title but Dragon comes back again and hits him with some stiff forearm shots but Red Ninja holds on, they both stand on the top rungs; they teeter precariously as the crowd holds its breath. Dragon then ducks a swing of the fist and suddenly pulls Red Ninja onto his shoulders; he then stands with him on his shoulders on the side opposite the tables. He then moves his legs on the other side and sits atop of the ladders looking down at the three tables. Dragon then stands and screams out as the fans erupt.
DF: “CRIMSON THUNDER?!”
JS: “OH MY GOD! HE WOULDN’T! WOULD HE?!”
DF: “DRAGONS A CRAZY BASTARD! YOU KNOW HE WOULD!”
Dragon then leaps forward and rotates hitting the Crimson Thunder right through all tables, the wood sprays and the fragments fly. Ninja lands first as Dragon rolls through and sits up with his legs dangling outside of the ring and his head rested on the middle rope. Ninja doesn’t move as the crowd is in the worst frenzy of the night
Crowd: “HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! UHW! UHW! UHW! UHW! DRAGON! DRAGON! DRAGON! DRAGON!!!”
Dragon then pulls himself up using the ropes and stands facing the crowd with a smile on his face. He turns to the ladders in the middle and he steps over a still Red Ninja, avoiding the table rubble, he then starts climbing the ladders as the crowd continuously chant his name.
DF: “DRAGON HAS DONE IT!”
JS: “NO! NO! NO!!!”
Dragon reaches the middle when a commotion hits the fans by the stage. Suddenly Harvey Cross walks out onto the stage with a barbed wire steel chair in hand! The fans boo profusely and Dragon glances over as he grasps onto the rungs mid-Ladder. Dragon see’s his bloody face, bruised body and cuts all over Harvey but a fresh look in his eyes and Dragon lowers his head, he scampers and tries to get to the top but Harvey begins to run down the ramp, he slides in and Dragon looks at him cursing and shaking his head. Harvey then raises the chair!
DF: “NO! NOT LIKE THIS! HE WAS TAKEN OUT OF THE MATCH!”
JS: “YES! I TOLD YOU HE’D BE BACK!”
Harvey then smashes the chair off Dragon’s back and pulls it off as the barbed wire rips off his skin, blood begins to pour and Dragon screams out but he grips onto the ladder still and keeps trying to climb, Harvey Cross then smashes the chair off his back once more cutting more skin and causing more pain. Dragon finally drops and turns and Harvey cracks the barbed wire chair off his skull sending him to the mat with blood pouring from his skull. Dragon tries to crawl away but Harvey drops the chair on the mat and kicks Ninja from the ring, he then kicks the table remnants away as officials pull it out also. Dragon then crawls to the corner but Harvey stalks him with a sick look in his eyes. He then pulls him up when suddenly Dragon fights back with blood all over his body pouring, Dragon hits him with kicks, forearms and punches as Harvey staggers back crashing into the ladders, they teeter and land on the ropes, Harvey comes back but Dragon kicks him in the gut and sets him up for the Crimson Lighting as the crowd cheer, Dragon goes to hit it but Harvey Cross quickly drops behind him and Dragon turns and is met with a thumb to the eye, Dragon staggers around and returns swinging but Harvey ducks them and then kicks him hard in the groin as Dragon doubles over clutching the family jewels. The crowd boos as Harvey grabs him by the head and takes him to the centre of the ring, Harvey lets him go and pulls the barbed wire chair underneath his feet, he then stands in front of it and lifts Dragon over his shoulders into the hangman’s position, he then hits the Medicating which brings on silence from the crowd!
DF: “THE MEDICATING! HE’S DONE IT SURELY?!”
JS: “YES! HE’S DONE IT!”
Dragon drops to his knees and flops forward landing face first on the barbed wire chair, shaking and flopping as blood pours from his cheeks, forehead and chin. Harvey then holds his arms up in the air in an “X” shape to the crowd who boo him and throw cups and litter at him. Cross then pulls the ladders back to a standing position in the centre of the ring. He then slowly climbs it as Dragon rolls around onto his back, he looks up at the rafters and tries to sit up but Harvey is too fast. Cross then reaches the top and flips off the crowd as Ninja slowly sits up, Damon James is clinging to the apron and Andy is sat against the barrier trying to crawl forwards. Dragon sits up to a pop but Harvey grabs the belt and unhooks it! The bell rings and the crowd nearly riot as cocky Harvey Cross grins clutching the belt.
JS: “YES! HE DID IT! HARVEY CROSS RETAINS THE X-RATED CHAMPIONSHIP!”
DF: “OH MY GOD! WHAT A MATCH! WHAT A MATCH!!!”
Crowd: “FUCK YOU, HARVEY! FUCK YOU, HARVEY!”
Ninja drops back and Damon drops to the mat looking up. Dragon remains sat and look up in dismay as Harvey climbs back down and drops to the canvass. He then sits on the bottom of the ramp looking with a grin on his face. He then stands with rubbish and cups flying at him.
AJ: “LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILL UHW X-RATED CHAMPION…HARVEY CROSS!!!”
Harvey then stands and raises the title high in the air, the fans boo louder and throw more rubbish at him, he laughs and backs up the ramp still as the camera cuts to Andy Lionheart with his hands on his head, Damon James is knelt against the ring looking at Harvey, he has a look of disgust on his face. Ninja is sat up now looking at Dragon trying to make sense of it, he then sits back and looks to the rafters as Dragon keeps his eyes locked on Harvey with a look of dismay and hurt in his eyes. He then slowly stands as the crowd chants his name. He stares down Harvey who grins back at him tapping the belt. Dragon’s face turns from hurt to hatred as his whole body shakes and his eyes turn to fury. He then remains still as both men stare down. Harvey then reaches the top of the ramp holding the title as high as ever
DF: “UHW: Christmas Chaos comes to an end! What a way to end the year! What a ladder match! Congratulations to Harvey who has paid some dues tonight!”
JS: “YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT HE DID! HE SAID HE WAS GOING TO STOP DRAGON AND HE DID! AND IN THE PROCESS HE RETAINED HIS TITLE! WHAT A BONUS!”
DF: “That he did. What a show, folks! 2008 Promises to be as good as anything we’ve seen before!”
JS: “SEE YOU IN 2008!”
The shot then remains on a gleeful Harvey as he poses with the X-Rated Title. We see Dragon once more as he wipes blood from his face and looks at his cut and beaten body, he then looks back at Harvey who places the title around his waist and starts dancing and laughing as the UHW logo appears. The show then ends on Harvey standing with a big grin on his face and the title wrapped around his waist.
