DF: “This next match is being billed as an Exhibition Match, Josh, so from my knowledge this will be standard wrestling rules, no weapons, nothing like that.”
JS: “Well if you look at both men, you’d think this type of match wouldn’t be suited but they’ve proved to be efficient wrestlers. Drake can handle himself with power and prowess and Baron has his mixed-martial-arts background, a guy who reminds me of Mike Awesome”
DF: “Yeah, it should be an immense match but one has to wonder, how long before it escalates into war?”
JS: “It’s just a matter of time…”
"Step Up" By Drowning Pool hits and the crowd explodes in huge cheers as sparks come from the top of the arena spelling "Drake" above the stage. Drake stands on the stage with his arms up in the air as the pyro above him explodes. He walks down the ramp and gets in the ring jumping up on each turnbuckle and sits in the corner to await his foe. His music then dies down.
DF: “There is a man who has achieved a lot in UHW, a man who truly represents Hardcore”
JS: “Yeah, but is this his third comeback?”
“Eye of the Tiger” then hits and the crowd explodes again with equally huge cheers as Baron walks out in some Red and Black MMA shorts. He paces down the ramp and looks at Drake with a wry smile. He then slides in the ring and they both start going at it with lefts and rights as his music cuts.
DF: “HERE WE GO!!!”
JS: “YEAH! SUPER BRAWL!”
Baron grabs Drakes wrist as the bell sounds and Michael St. Clare jumps into action. Baron whips him in the corner and runs at him with a Stinger Splash but Drake ducks out of the way and turns hitting a hard knife edge chop against Barons chest, Baron grabs Stevens and tosses him around into the turnbuckle and connects with an even harder knife edge chop but Drake growls and hits some more chops, moving slowly out of the corner, he then takes Baron by the back of the head driving a knee into his ribs, he then drops him with a DDT before making a quick cover…
Kickout! Baron throws his shoulder up and sits up as Drake stands, Baron stands quickly and they tie up in a collar-elbow.
DF: “A quick match here and both men looking to stamp their authority”
JS: “I’d say Drake was in control”
Baron swivels around Drakes body and takes him down with a GEEEEEERRRRRMAAAAN Suplex and then stands before dropping his elbow down onto his sternum. Baron then stands and hauls Drake Stevens up before hurling him into the ropes, he ducks down and Drake stalls before him before kicking him in the chest. Baron stands and “hulks” up before Stevens drops him with a stiff clothesline. Drake then stands and climbs the turnbuckle; he looks around at the baying crowd and then leaps off with a 450 Splash, which MISSES!!! Baron rolls around and sits up as Drake clutches at his gut. Baron then pulls him up and connects with a very stiff lefts to his face, Drake drops back into the ropes as blood dribbles from a cut on his lip, he feels it and looks at the blood on his fingers. Baron shrugs as the crowd “Ohhhs”.
DF: “What a shot from Baron!”
JS: “Was that a closed fist?”
Drake then leaps forward and hits Baron with a forearm smash that resonates throughout the arena, Baron drops back and clutches his nose as it pours with blood. Baron then stands and the crowd “Ahhhs”. Drake then shrugs in response and Baron leaps up and tackles Drake down, they then start rolling around the ring exchanging lefts and rights furiously. They end up rolling out of the ring and they stand, Baron runs and is tripped up and lands on the barrier face first. Drake then pulls him and starts blasting his head off the barrier as Michael St. Clare begins a count-out…1…2…3…4…Drake then turns to roll back in the ring but Baron scrambles after him and pulls him around, he then whips him shoulder first into the ring post and runs after him as he staggers around, Baron then runs up him and tries for an Enzuigiri but Drake catches him in a scoop…5…6…7…Drake then drops him down with a rib-breaker and pulls him up again, he then lands him down again for another before dropping him to the mat…8…Drake then walks to the ring apron…
DF: “Drake is going to win here by count-out!”
JS: “How cheap!”
Baron then suddenly grabs his feet and stops him as Drake struggles up the apron, Baron then pulls him down to his knees as the referee completes the count…9…10!!! Michael then calls for the bell as the crowd begin booing profusely.
AJ: “The referee has declared this match a DRAW as a result of a DOUBLE COUNT-OUT!!!”
Crowd: “THIS SUCKS! THIS SUCKS! THIS SUCKS!”
JS: “AW, COME ON!”
DF: “This is disappointing. I was expecting a great match”
Baron stands up as Drake stands with his hands on his hips. They start verbals and start pushing each other back and forth. Baron then connects with a kick to the gut before hurling him back first into the barrier. Drake staggers up and tackles Baron into the ring apron and they start laying into each other. The crowd erupts as they battle around the ring. Drake then kicks him in the gut, grabs his leg and hits a Northern Lights Suplex in front of the Announce table. He then stands and begins to search under the ring, he then slowly starts to pull out a table while Baron rolls to the ring steps and clambers up slowly. Drake Stevens then sets up the table in front of the announce table and walks around it towards the now standing Baron who suddenly leaps up and slaps a back kick to Stevens’ gut, he then smashes his head off the apron and then rolls him onto the announce table.
DF: “UH-OH! Move out the way Josh”
JS: “Already ahead of ya!”
The announcer move back as Baron climbs up after him, he looks down at the wooden table in front and looks to the crowd with a sadistic grin on his face. He then pulls him in and calls for the Bonafied Legacy! Baron then leaps back off the table as Drake rolls over but he moves his body across Barons and both men collapse through the table while being ‘meshed’ together.
DF: “OH MY GOD!!!!”
JS: “WAS THAT THE LEGACY OR DID DRAKE REVERSE IT?!”
DF: “A BIT OF BOTH!!!”
The crowd erupts into a frenzy while Baron and Drake lie motionless in amidst a sea of broken wood and shards .The legs are bent up as the crowd continues going wild. EMTs then rush down to the ring as the cameras show Drake and Baron lying on their backs next to each other, their eyes flickering and bodies twitching. The show then cuts to replays of the move, showing it to be Baron half hitting the move and Drake half-reversing it.
DF: “By the looks of it, Baron was set to hit the move when Drake somehow moved his body on top of Baron’s, only half his body was protected. It looks as though Baron’s stomach took the brunt of the fall and Drakes upper body took some punishment.”
JS: “Yeah, Drake’s legs were cushioned by Baron’s back. That was just sick!”
The show returns to Baron being sat up, his stomach bright red with bits of blood dripping. Drake rolls away and his chest is bright red, again with bits of blood dripping from the wood shards/splinters. Both men are checked by the EMTs as the PPV cuts to a International X Title video package featuring Dragon, Goryokaku, PhenoM and Alexander Draven
