DING DING DING!!!

Ben Richmond: This next match is… is a very special… ALCATRAZ MATCH!!!

::: The crowd oohs and ahs as the infamous Alcatraz cage is lowered,
surrounding the ring. :::

Richmond: The rules are simple… the first team to have BOTH MEMBERS exit the cage through the tunnel in the roof and reach the arena floor are the winners! This match will determine the NEW GTW Tag Team Champions!!! And now… introducing the teams…

::: Crowd boos as “The Zoo” starts up. :::

Richmond: First, they hail from Chicago, Illinois… weighing in at a total combined weight of 455 lbs…. “True Excellence” Will Lavin… the GTW Hardcore Champion, Justin Storm… THE IMPACT PLAYERS!!!

::: The crowd boos as Lavin and Storm emerge from the curtain. At the top of the entrance ramp, Lavin flexes his biceps, while Storm holds up his trademark Kendo stick in one hand, his GTW Hardcore title belt in the other. Both have sneers on their face, not listening to the jeers of the crowd. :::

Papa: Well folks, the last few weeks, the Impact Players have been on quite a tear as they have just RIPPED through this tournament…

::: Footage of Lavin and Storm beating up Storm’s old girlfriend, Nicole Wilson, and some fans a few weeks ago… :::

Papa: … not only inside of the ring… but outside of the ring. But… last week folks… they stepped over the line…

::: Shots of Jack Frost being thrown into the trunk of his car… and then, at a speed of 50 mph, Lavin slamming into a concrete wall IN REVERSE!!! :::

Papa: … after beating up fans a few weeks ago… including a female fan… as well as Storm’s ex-girlfriend, Nicole Wilson… and then, last week… Jack Frost, suffering a number of injuries at the hands of the Impact Players last week… and he has been replaced by another man who has felt the Impact Players’ wrath…

::: Shot of Brian Blade being put through a table courtesy of the BB Buster from last week’s show :::

Papa: … Brian Blade. Now… Blade is not going to be at 100%… no way in hell… but the guy is a former GTW World Champion… and he’s dealt with the Impact Players before. So locking him inside of this cage with them… it could mean we all get to see what the Impact Players have coming to them…

Crocker: Now Papa, I disagree there… you say that Blade will make the Impact Players pay? Papa… how the hell is he going to do that? The Impact Players are the greatest tag team in GTW history!!! Blade and Ice? Sure… they’ve teamed up before… but they are hardly the greatest unit ever formed… and I’d bet that Blade is a little bit jealous that Ice carries that world title belt around with him…

Papa: Well, he did win it.

Crocker: Yeah… but not from Blade… but Trevor Longly.

Papa: Are you trying to say that Brian Blade should be GTW champion Crock, and not Ice?

Crocker: Well Papa… I wouldn’t go that far… to be honest, I don’t like
either one of them all that much…but if I had to pick, it’d be Blade.

Papa: Why?

Crocker: Ha ha ha… you know Papa… I always like to favor those that don’t adhere to well to the rules… and although Blade may be a fan favorite now… I know… I just KNOW that he wants to turn heel and slap Ice upside the head with a chair!

Papa: Well… I don’t know about that… but with the hate that both Ice and Blade have towards the Impact Players, I don’t see them not being able to co-exist here… but then again, with the World Champion involved, you never know what could happen.

::: The crowd begins to die down as referee Bob Chesnut locks Storm and Lavin in the cage… Storm a little upset, having to check his Kendo stick at the door. :::

Crocker: Hey… how come Storm can’t bring that thing in the cage? There’s no DQ you know!

Papa: Well… as one of his first acts… Herr Professor… or Herr Commissioner… or whatever you want to call him… he’s ordered that we don’t see the circumvention of the fighting spirit of the Alcatraz match that we saw last year… and if you don’t know what I’m talking about… take a look at this!

::: Flashback to over one year ago… GTW “Rung by Damn Rung”… where Brian Blade and Jack Frost teamed up to take on X-Citing Xian Xavier and Jack Ryder in the first-ever GTW Alcatraz match :::

Papa: As you can see here…

::: Shot of Brian Blade pulling out a screwdriver to remove the lock on the roof of the cage which leads into the vertical tunnel… :::

Papa: … Blade… back in the days when he wasn’t such an upstanding citizen… using that screwdriver to sneak out of the cage…

::: Another shot of Blade using the screwdriver to pick the lock to escape the cage door to win the match. :::

Papa: … and again, to actually win the match… so not only has Herr
Commissioner barred ALL foreign objects from entering the cage… but he also has ruled that NOBODY can exit through the conventional doorway! The only way out is through the roof!

Crocker: What!? That’s crazy!

Papa: No… that’s the way it should be… this match is about being a survivor… and making these men climb out through a 4 X 4 hole in the roof of the cage makes things all the more interesting…

DING DING DING!!!

Richmond: And their opponents…

CALM LIKE A BOMB!!!

::: HUGE pop as Brian Blade’s theme, “Calm like a Bomb” by Rage Against the Machine starts up. :::

Richmond: Introducing first… he hails from Denver, Colorado… weighing in at 203 lbs… and accompanied by Dana Davis… making his return to the GTW rings… and the Alcatraz cage… BRIIIIIIIIIIIIIAN BLADE!!!

Papa: The fans on their feet here for Brian Blade!!!

Crocker: What’s he always talking about… his six or seven fans? It’s more like six or seven million!

Papa: Well it certainly sounds like that here… Brian Blade, suffering that ankle injury only a few short weeks ago… and according to doctors, NOWHERES NEAR 100%… but he’s going for it here… he’s PROMISING revenge on the Impact Players!

Crocker: Now… I respect Blade a little bit… but against the Impact Players? NO WAY! I have to pick Lavin and Storm…

Papa: Well, judging by the way you ran things here for a few weeks, I wonder how much a damn your opinion is worth Crock… but enough about you, because Brian Blade is ready to enter the cage… Dana is wishing the former GTW champion good luck… and trust me folks… as much as Blade is talented… he is going to NEED that luck.

Crocker: Ha! You said it Papa!

::: Another HUGE pop as “Dead Cell” by Papa Roach booms in the arena… :::

Richmond: And his partner… he is the GTW World Heavyweight champion…
accompanied to the ring by Danielle Angel… ICE!!!

Papa: Ice on his way out to the ring… the fans are going wild here!

Crocker: This is a dream match Papa…

Papa: Indeed…

Crocker: … a dream for Ice and Blade that is… cause they must be fantasizing if they think that they can beat the Impact Players!!!

Papa: This should be one hell of a fight folks… as Ice and Blade step into the cage… look at Blade… he can’t even walk at 100%!!! How the hell is he going to compete here?

Crocker: I don’t know how he’ll compete… but I know how he’ll leave… in a wheelchair! HA!

Papa: Funny Crock… real funny…

DING DING DING!!!

Papa: And here we go!!! The cage is locked… Blade and Ice inside… the Impact Players telling them to bring it on… YOU DON’T HAVE TO ASK TWICE BOYS!!! Ice going after Lavin… BAM!!! Right hand! Blade to Storm… BAM!!! Strikes with a righthand of his own!!! The Impact Players absorbing lefts and rights from Blade and Ice… synchronized ass-kickings!

Crocker: No way Papa! The Players are doing “rope-a-dope”… and trust me… they’ve got two dopes roped in there!

Papa: Well it sure doesn’t look like it here… as Blade grabs ahold of
Storm’s arm… Ice has got Lavin… Ice and Blade throw their opponents into the ropes… BAM!!! Both strike with a dropkick!!! Storm down… Lavin reeling… Ice charges him… WHAM!!! Clothesline sends him over the top rope, to the arena floor!!! Meanwhile, Blade going after Storm… stomping the Hardcore champ while he’s down… Storm though, able to get to his feet… wraps Blade in a waistlock… but Blade pulls out of it… sending Storm into the ropes… hurricurana takes Storm down!!! Blade not letting up… although he favors his ankle as he gets to his feet… pulling Storm up… OH!!! Storm with a shot to the midsection!!! BAM! Another! And he grabs Blade by the leg… trips him… and locks an ankle lock onto that injured ankle!!!

Crocker: Ha!!! This is it right here!!!

Papa: Blade falling to the mat… BAM!!! He counters with a kick to Storm’s head as he falls! Wow… that was a close one… Blade’s ankle very tender here… and Storm could have put him out with that hold!

Crocker: He’ll get it on… trust me…

Papa: Meanwhile, on the arena floor… only about four feet in between the cage and the apron… we see Lavin and Ice going at it… Ice with the
upperhand… he and Lavin have faced numerous times since the GTW re-opened…

Crocker: Yeah… and Lavin kicked his ass every time!

Papa: Umm… not by my count… but you’re the statistician Crock!

Crocker: You’re damn right I am! Did I mention I’m a former GTW Texas TV champion as well?

Papa: You’re killing me here Crock… back in the ring… or should I say in the cage… Ice and Lavin going at it… Ice sends Lavin into the ringsteps! WHAM!!! Lavin hits the steel shoulder first!

Crocker: He’s got a lot of mass though…

Papa: True enough… Lavin the biggest man in this match… and probably the biggest powerhouse in the entire federation… especially with that insane spinebuster of his!

Crocker: And don’t forget the Excellerator Papa!

Papa: The Excellerator? Oh right… the move that Lavin goes on and on about being the move to end all moves… yet we have yet to see it performed in a match… right now, he is in no position to do any moves… as Ice has him back up… WHAM!!! Throws him right into the cage!

Crocker: Look at the marks on his back!

Papa: That unforgiving steel leaving a nasty group of scratches on Lavin’s massive back… but Ice isn’t content to just bloody Lavin that way… he’s got him… OH NO!!! Face first into the steel!!!!

Crocker: Ouch!!!

Papa: Lavin thrown right into that wire mesh… and he’s been busted open!

Crocker: Gross!

Papa: Calm down Crock… oh no… Ice isn’t done there… he’s got Lavin’s face… OH!!! RUBBING THE FACE INTO THE STEEL!!!

Crocker: The cheese grater spot!!!

Papa: Oh my god… Lavin’s face looks like a pizza!!! Blood covering his
forehead… trickling down across his face… Ice isn’t done yet!!! He puts the face back into the steel… OH GOD!!! He’s dragging Lavin around the ring!!! The steel is tearing Lavin’s flesh to shreds!!!

Crocker: Is that legal?

Papa: ANYTHING is legal in this match, Crock… Lavin is bleeding all over the place… back in the ring though… Brian Blade and Justin Storm still going at it… Blade with the upperhand… trying to protect that ankle at all costs… he has Storm… sends him into the ropes… lifts him up!!! He’s looking for the Tornado Backbreaker!

Crocker: El Pukey!!!

Papa: Spins Storm once… twice--- NO!!!! Storm wraps his legs around Blade’s head and takes him down with a headscissors!!! What a counter!

Crocker: He’s not a three time Hardcore champ for nothing Papa!

Papa: Well… I admit, that was a nice move… and Storm is the only man to win the GTW Hardcore title three times… but I don’t see what being hardcore has to do with executing a headscissors…

Crocker: Oh man Papa… do I have to explain EVERYTHING to you???

Papa: Maybe… as now… on the outside, Ice is ready to slingshot Lavin into the cage… Lavin’s blood staining the arena mats… wait a second… Storm running across the ring… OH!!! TAKES TO THE SKIES!!! Flying bodypress to the arena floor!!! That takes Ice down! Lavin now gaining his bearings… he and Storm lift Ice up… OH!!! They drop him face-first onto the ringsteps!!!

Crocker: Ha! Let’s see how Ice likes it!

Papa: Lavin wiping the blood from his face… I’m surprised he can even see what he’s doing… he and Storm now kicking the hell out of Ice as he’s down… Lavin now… barking something to Storm… Storm reaching underneath the ring…

::: HUGE POP!!! :::

Papa: Storm just got the table!!!

Crocker: Heh heh heh… Ice is in trouble now!

Papa: Justin Storm setting up that table… but from behind!!! WHAM!!! Brian Blade slides out of the ring with a baseball slide!!! Storm loses his footing and his head slams right onto that hardwood table!!! Blade on his feet… turns around… OH!!! Lavin rocks him with a clothesline!

Crocker: NEVER underestimate Will Lavin… they don’t call him True Excellence for nothing!

Papa: Funny… I thought they called him that because “Bad Boy Bill” was such a lame name…

Crocker: Shut up Papa!

Papa: Well, Lavin surveying the damage now… as he lifts Blade up high…
WOAH!!! Gorrilla press slam!!! He drops him right onto Ice!

Crocker: Ha! What a move!

Papa: Yes… hurting both members of the opposition there… Lavin now… taking that table that his partner was setting up earlier… sliding it into the ring… Storm up now… kicking Ice and Blade as they are down… Lavin though… in the ring… he’s setting up the table in the center of the ring!

Crocker: What’s he doing that for!? Both of those guys are on the outside!

Papa: Well, apparently Lavin sees that… as he goes back to the arena floor to help his partner out… the Impact Players stomping away at Ice and Blade… definitely in control here… Lavin is still bleeding from the forehead… taking it out on Ice… as he has the champ up now… puts him on his shoulder… oh no… BAM!!! BATTERING RAM INTO THE CAGE!!!

Crocker: Yes! Now Ice is busted open!

Papa: Lavin isn’t done yet… BAM!!! Again! BAM!! Again! Wow… this is shades of Shawn Michaels and the Undertaker, Hell in a Cell circa 1997!

Crocker: When!?

Papa: Ah, forget it… Lavin now… slides Ice into the ring… and… he gets
ANOTHER table!!!

Crocker: Ha!!! Once for each of those losers!

Papa: Lavin pulls that second table out from underneath the ring… slides it inside… Ice on the mat, lying in a pool of his own blood… and now… Lavin and Storm double-team Blade on the arena floor… BAM!!! They slam him into the cage! BAM!!! Again!!! BAM!!! And now Blade is busted open!

Crocker: Jesus… don’t any wrestlers have AIDS or anything??? They shouldn’t bust each other open so much!

Papa: God Crock… how the hell did you get a microphone!? Lavin and Storm now… rolling Blade into the ring… Lavin now… he’s got Ice… BAM!!! Right hand! BAM!!! Another! Holding the champ in place… Storm winds up… WHAM!!! SUPERKICK!!!

Crocker: Ha! That’ll show ‘em!

Papa: The Impact Players are just DOMINATING here! Lavin’s got Ice… and… wait a second… he’s pointing up high… it could be time for the BB BUSTER!!!

Crocker: Ha ha!

Papa: Wait… Storm… has got Blade… he places Blade onto the table!!! Lavin’s got Ice… he’s got him on the ropes… he wants to give Ice the BB BUSTER… through the table… AND THROUGH BLADE!!!

Crocker: This is it!!! Impact Players, new tag team champions!!!

Papa: Lavin’s got Ice… on the second rope… going for that Outsider’s Edge… LOOK OUT!!! NO!!! BLADE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!!

Crocker: But Ice still went through the table!!!

Papa: Indeed!!! But Blade is up… he was playing possum!!! WHAM!!! Spinning heel kick takes down Storm!!! Lavin turns to Blade… but Blade’s already bounced off the ropes… WHAM!!! Forearm smash!!! The Impact Players are both down!!!

Crocker: Dammit!!!

::: HUGE pop as Blade raises his arms, yelling “COME ON” to his opponents:::

Papa: Wait… Blade now… setting up that other table… and… he stands on top of it!!! He’s using it as a stepping stone… he’s trying to break out of the cage… he’s trying to break the hell out of ALCATRAZ!!!

Crocker: Umm… calm down Mr. Shill.

Papa: Blade now… he’s able to reach the roof the cage! He’s going hand over hand… heading towards the center… heading towards the locked hatch… the way to the tunnel, to get up and out of here!

Crocker: No way does Blade get out! Look! Storm’s up!!!

Papa: Indeed… Justin Storm up… climbing the turnbuckles… and now he is
dangling from the roof!!! Also heading towards the center… and… LOOK AT THIS!!! Blade and Storm… both hanging by their fingers!!! They are both next to the hatch… WHAM!!! Blade reaches up and kicks Storm with both legs!!! Storm holds on though… Blade rears back again… NO!!! Storm counters!!! He wraps one arm around Blade’s legs!!! Blade hanging… Storm hanging by one arm… Blade releases one arm… trying to punch Storm… Storm is BITING the legs!!!

Crocker: I love it Papa!!!! These are two are pulling out all the stops to get the hell out of there!!!

Papa: Storm and Blade both holding on… they both have a hand on the roof… on that retractable hatch in fact… and… OH!!!! THE HATCH BREAKS!!! The hatch door collapses… BAM!!! Storm and Blade both fall ten feet to the mat!!! But the tunnel is opened!

Crocker: All the Impact Players have to do now is scurry up there and get the hell out!!!

Papa: Easier said then done Crock… Lavin’s on his feet… granted… but he’s got a LOT of weight to pull up that high!!! But… he’s climbing… folks… this is SO much harder then a steel cage match… as not only do the wrestlers have to climb the walls of the cage… but also, they need to go hand over hand as they hang from the roof… and THEN… enter that tunnel… pull themselves up into it… and climb ANOTHER ten feet to reach the top of that!

Crocker: It can’t be THAT hard Papa… I mean, I used to be the best rope climber in my 7th grade gym class… I’m sure I could do it, easy!

Papa: I’d like to see you try it Crock… as Lavin’s up there… trying to go hand over hand… wait a second… Ice stirring… as is Blade… but Lavin is getting towards the tunnel… Ice up… barely… still woozy from that BB Buster through the table… he’s hopelessly trying to grab at Lavin’s feet… but Lavin kicking him away… but… he’s providing the distraction… as Blade is on the top turnbuckle… DIVES!!! WHAM!!! Spears Lavin!!!! He and Lavin crash to the mat!!!

Crocker: Dammit!!! Dammit!!!

Papa: It’s obviously NOT so easy to escape the cage Tristan… as Ice, Blade, and Lavin all lay on the mat… Justin Storm is up though!!! He’s pulling Ice up… the hardcore champ and the world champ, trading shots here… Storm the only one not busted open this match… but Ice looking to change that… sending the right hands to Storm’s face!!! Ice sends him into the ropes… BAM!!! Powerslam!!! And now… Ice with his version of the People’s Elbow… THE ICY HOT!!!

Crocker: Dammit!! That is gimmick infringement at it’s worst!!!

Papa: Well… Ice is in control… as Lavin is slowly getting to his feet… but the GTW champion… heading to the top turnbuckle…. LOOK OUT!!! BAM!!! His version of the Buff Blockbuster… THE FREEZING POINT!!!

::: Huge pop as the crowd gets on their feet, everybody chanting “ICE, ICE, ICE” :::

Papa: Danielle Angel and Dana Davis leading the cheers of the crowd here… everybody is on their feet… Ice turns to Storm… who is slowly getting up… Ice sizing him up… looking for the SUB-ZERO… Storm up.. barely… barely… Ice has got him though!!!! NO!!! Storm breaks it!!! He drops to his knees… WHAM!!! Lowblow!!! Ice doubled over… Storm barely up… Blade charges at him… going for the clothesline… NO!!! Storm ducks!!! BAM!!! Blade accidentally nails Ice!!!

Crocker: HA!!! I told you that they couldn’t co-exist Papa!!!

Papa: Purely accidental… as Blade looks upset that he missed his target… but Storm not down… spins Blade around… grabs him by the neck… OH NO!!! THE RAGING STORM!!! Blade is down!!!

Crocker: Serves him right!

Papa: Justin Storm now… choking Ice as he lay on the mat… meanwhile… Will Lavin… he’s up on his feet!!! True Excellence… mounting that second table that was set up earlier… hanging from the roof of the cage… and… he’s in the tunnel!!! Lavin climbing… stops… and… he’s shouting to Storm!!! He’s shouting for Storm to follow him!!!

Crocker: Yes!!!! Go Justin!!! Go!!! Win those titles!!!

Papa: Storm turns away from Ice… Lavin… reaching down… he’s going to hoist Storm up there!!!! Storm hopping… trying to get into Lavin’s grip!!! And… LAVIN’S GOT HIM!!! This could be it!!! Ice and Blade are both down in the cage… WAIT!!! NO!!! Blade kips-up to his feet!!!

::: Another BIG pop :::

Papa: Bum ankle and all, Blade kips up!!! He grabs ahold of Storm’s legs… and… HE’S PULLING HIMSELF UP!!! Using Storm as a ladder!!!! Blade is in the tunnel!!! But so are Storm AND Lavin!!! Lavin’s near the top… trying to break open the top hatch… but Blade and Storm are rumbling in the tunnel!!! Blade ramming Storm’s head into the steel… BAM! BAM! BAM! Storm’s FINALLY been busted open!

Crocker: Everybody’s bleeding now!

Papa: Storm’s got blood in his eyes… Blade… climbing OVER him… above him now in the tunnel… WHAM!!! Boot to the face!!! WHAM!!! Another!!! WHAM!!! And… Storm loses his grip… OH NO!!! He falls fifteen feet right to the mat!!!

Crocker: No!!!

Papa: BAM!!! Storm slams onto the canvas!!! But… up higher… Lavin has broken through the hatch… it’s still on its hinges… he’s on that wooden platform that serves as the exit to the tunnel!!! Taking a moment to catch a breath… but Blade is right after him! Lavin sees him coming… takes the hatch door… WHAM!!! Slams it shut!!! Blade’s fingers crushed!!! He still keeps his grip though… as Lavin lifts the door again… WHAM!!! Right down again onto Blade’s digits!!! But Blade holds on… Lavin lifts one more time… and… WHA---- NO!!! Blade lifts his legs up!!! He kicks the door back into Lavin’s face!!!

Crocker: Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!!!

Papa: And now Blade climbs up… he’s on the platform!!! BAM!!! Right hand strikes Lavin! BAM!!! Another!!! And now… trying to push Lavin back into the tunnel… NO!!! Lavin with a backbodydrop!!! Blade flipped off of the platform… OH!!! And ten feet below, onto the roof of the cage!!!

Crocker: I’m surprised it didn’t break!!!

Papa: Oh no… that happened last time we had an Alcatraz match… and also in some Hell in the Cell matches featuring a certain Foley… so we MADE SURE that the cage was EXTRA reinforced for this match!

Crocker: Damn! It should only be reinforced in the parts that Lavin and Storm are thrown onto!

Papa: Crock… you’re an idiot… Lavin now… climbing down the OUTSIDE of the tunnel, onto the roof…

Crocker: Escape! Escape from Alcatraz!

Papa: Well… as you know Crock, BOTH members of the team have to escape to the arena floor to win the match… but Lavin leaving his partner alone in the ring with the champion to fend for himself… instead focusing here on Blade… taking the former champion… picking him up… WHAM!!! Whips him back-first into the outside of the tunnel!!! The cage rattles from the power of Lavin… and now… Lavin… is climbing… DOWN!!! To the arena floor!!! And… he’s made it!

Crocker: Ring the bell!!! Ring it!!!

Papa: God you’re an idiot Crock… BOTH MEN HAVE TO REACH THE FLOOR.

Crocker: Oh… BOTH men!? Ahhh… I get it now…

Papa: God… Lavin now… on the arena floor… and… he’s… he’s… LEAVING?!?!

::: The crowd boos as Lavin heads up the ramp :::

Papa: Where the hell is Lavin going!!? Blade is on the roof of the cage… barely awake… it looks like he cut the back of his head from the fall from the platform to the roof… that steel VERY unforgiving, it will tear directly at the flesh… meanwhile… as Lavin heads away… in the ring, both Storm and Ice are on their feet… Storm is up first… waiting for Ice to get up… and… WOAH!!! SUPERKI--- NO!!! Ice grabs the leg!!! Whips Storm down with a dragonscrew… and… into the ANKLELOCK!!!

Crocker: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Papa: YES!!! Storm is down… SCREAMING in pain!!! The champion… not letting up at all… blood pouring down Ice’s face… he’s like a MADMAN in there!!!

Crocker: Let him go!!! Somebody stop this!

::: Sudden POP :::

Papa: Wait a second… coming back down the ramp… it’s Lavin… and… HE’S GOT A DAMN GAS CAN WITH HIM!!!

Crocker: Here we go!!!

Papa: The Impact Players have been using the flaming table in recent weeks! Lavin now… on his way back to the ring… he drops the gas can… charging towards the cage… he sees his partner in trouble.… and… wait… what is he doing… coming over here!?!? He’s got referee Bob Chesnut… OH!!! Throws the ref down!!! He’s got Storm’s kendo stick!!! And… he passes it through the cage, into the ring to Storm!!! Storm gets a hand on it… swings back and… WHAM!!! Nails Ice in the head!!! He escapes the ankle lock!!!

Crocker: Ingenious move by Lavin!!!

Papa: Indeed… as Lavin smiles… Danielle Angel and Dana Davis at ringside… both of them cowering from Lavin… Lavin now… heading back to the gas can… he grabs a table… sets it up underneath the roof of the cage… as Brian Blade begins to stir… Lavin’s got the table set up… and… he drenches the table in gasoline!!! Reaching for the lighter… LIGHTS IT UP!!!!

::: BIG POP :::

Crocker: WHOO-HOO!!!

Papa: The table in flames… the crowd is loving it… and… WOAH!!!! DANA JUMPS ON LAVIN’S BACK!!!

::: ANOTHER big POP! :::

Papa: Dana’s on Lavin’s back… Lavin grabs her by reaching his arms around behind his head… WHAM!!! Slams her onto the concrete floor!!! And… WOAH!!! DANIELLE ANGEL FROM BEHIND WITH A CHAIR!!!

Crocker: That’s no way to treat an ex-boyfriend Papa!

Papa: Crock of course making reference to the relationship Danielle had with Lavin before it went sour and she went to Ice… but that chair shot… hardly enough force to take TE down… as he turns… and he’s got his ex by the hair!!! Oh no…

::: HUGE pop again!!! :::

Papa: He’s going to put her through that flaming table!!!

Crocker: Yes!!! That’ll show her who the REAL MAN is!!!

Papa: Lavin’s got her… and… WAIT… from the crowd… it’s… it’s… NICOLE
WILSON!!! And… SHE MACED LAVIN!!! Nicole gets her revenge!!!

Crocker: What!?!? What the hell is that bitch doing here!?!?

Papa: Lavin drops Danielle!!! He’s blind… but still swinging!!! WHAM!!! He nails Nicole!!! WHAM!!! Another shot hits Danielle!!! Lavin’s taken out all three women!!! But he can’t see!!! Blinded… and… OH NO…

::: MONSTER POP as Blade stands on the roof of the cage, looking down to Lavin! :::

Papa: One of those women was Blade’s girlfriend… Blade… barely standing on the roof… LOOK OUT BELOW!!! BLADE LEAPS OFF THE CAGE!!! WHAM!!! CUTTING EDGE FROM THE ROOF OF THE CAGE!!! LAVIN’S FACE HITS THE FLOOR!!!

::: “HOLY SHIT” chant starts up from the crowd. :::

Papa: Blade takes Lavin out… but… it looks like he hurt himself as well… that ankle coming up bum!

::: Blade rolls around on the mat, clutching his ankle… as Lavin looks about dead. :::

Crocker: Ha!! The idiot took himself out!!!

Papa: Idiot maybe… but brave, definitely… Blade on the arena floor… rolling in pain, clutching at the ankle… as Lavin lay motionless, face-first on the floor… the flaming table next to them… and Nicole, Danielle, and Dana all out like a light! It’s carnage at ringside!

Crocker: Hmm… I wonder if any of the chicks need mouth-to-mouth?

Papa: Back inside the ring… Justin Storm has brought that table into the center of the ring… he’s got his kendo stick… and he throws it up into the tunnel! The stick lands on the platform!

Crocker: Foreshadowing!

Papa: Maybe… as the table is in the center of the ring… directly underneath the tunnel… Storm using it to get a boost… and… he’s in the tunnel!!!

Crocker: Climb Justin!!! CLIMB!!!

Papa: If Storm can escape Alcatraz… since his partner is on the arena floor… then he and Lavin win it!!! Storm now… slowly climbing through the tunnel… it’s may look easy folks… but that is a ten foot climb… and trust me… these guys are tired… Storm seems to be especially so… halfway up the tunnel… the Impact Players could win this thing!!!

Crocker: GO!!! GO!!! GO!!!

Papa: And… ICE IS ON HIS FEET!!!

::: HUGE POP :::

Papa: Ice now… on the table… and… HE’S IN THE TUNNEL!!! RIGHT BEHIND
STORM!!!

Crocker: NO!!! Kick him Justin! Kick him!

Papa: Storm not looking back… climbing… climbing… and… he’s at the platform… meanwhile… Ice is barely halfway through the tunnel!!

Crocker: Go Storm!!! GO!!!

Papa: Storm’s body out of the tunnel… he’s taking a rest on the platform… I don’t think he realizes where Ice is!

Crocker: GO!!! NOW! GOOOOOOOO!!!

Papa: Storm… crawling to the edge of the platform and… NO!!! Ice has him by the foot!!! Ice up… on the platform… EVERYBODY is out of the cage now!!! Storm on his feet… he and Ice trading shots… and… and… wait a second…

::: MONSTER POP…a “BRI-AN BLADE” chant starts :::

I don’t believe it folks… on the arena floor… Brian Blade… is climbing BACK up the cage wall!!!

Crocker: What!?! That idiot needs to stay on the floor! Why would he get back on the cage!

Papa: Well, to help his partner out, so BOTH can get to the arena floor and WIN maybe?

Crocker: Damn Papa… you’re always right… why don’t you just shut up?

Papa: Well, you pay me to do this Crock… Brian Blade though… ankle probably broken in pieces and all… he’s climbing back up the cage to the roof!! And… wait a second… on his feet also… WILL LAVIN!!! His face… bloody as all hell… it looks like his nose was broken via that Cutting Edge!!! But… he’s climbing… Blade now… on the roof… Ice and Storm about ten feet above on the platform… Blade… on only one leg… and Lavin is behind!!! On the platform… Ice… he’s got Storm… and… WOAH!!! Look out… he’s going to drop him down the tunnel!!!

Crocker: Oh no!

Papa: This happened to Blade in the first Alcatraz match… as Ice hoists Storm up… NO!!! Storm slips out from behind!!! And… BAM!!!! Bulldog onto the steel!!! Ice falls off of the platform… WOAH!!! Ten feet below to the roof!!! Storm… smiling at his handiwork… and… from behind!!! Blade is on the platform with the kendo stick… WHAM!!! Storm is down!!! Blade now… looking around to the crowd… 20 feet above the ring, on that platform… and… he POINTS TO THE TUNELL!!!

Crocker: Oh no…

Papa: This is what Blade tried in the last Alcatraz match… giving XXX a Cutting Edge to knock him down into the tunnel… but XXX moved at the last second… and Blade plummeted twenty feet to the mat… and through a table…

Crocker: Papa… there’s a table in the center of the ring right there!

Papa: Well… it looks like Déjŕ vu Crock… as Blade positions Storm… steps back… and… NO!!! LAVIN STRIKES WITH A CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!! Blade knocked off of the platform!!!

::: The crowd boos as Storm falls backwards onto the platform, and Blade falls off of the platform to the roof :::

Papa: Jesus folks… the hits just keep on coming here… Lavin coming to his partner’s rescue… and now… he turns his attention back to Ice!!! Climbs down the outside of the tunnel… and.. BAM!
