Ladder Match for the PWA Intercontinental Championship
Jamie Flynn © vs. Riona Langly
Emerson: The following
contest will be contested for the PIONEER WRESTLING ALLIANCE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP...
AND IT WILL BE A LADDER MATCH!!!! The first competitor to climb the
ladder and retrieve the championship will be the winner. There
are no pinfalls, submissions, countouts and disqualifications!
This has the potential to be a 5 star, total classic... or a gore-fest.
Either way, this is totally already one of my MOTY candidates!
McDaniel: It hasn't even happened yet, how can you be so sure?
Rentfro: Because if I don't, Riona's crazy internet fans will lynch me!
pinging noise fills the speakers, moving across the arena as the lights
flicker along with it. As the
pinging comes to a stop, the lights in the arena shut off
completely, and orchestral intro to "Planet Hell" by
Nightwish begins. The crowd doesn't really know what to think as
images of angels and death flash across the screen, superimposed
with flashes of ring action. The lights begin to flicker along
with the beat of the drums. And without a warning, the music
stops and a massive explosion of red pyro goes off on both sides of the
entrance ramp as the the guitars kick in most mightily, the lights
coming back on with a fury. Blue
lasers fly about the arena as Marco Hietala begins singing.

Tajra's pace and the music calm down considerably, a spotlight
bursts out from in front of the curtain as a figure slowly makes
its way out in front of it, head tilted down. Th figure stops
just in front of the light, head tilted down. Her long, black
hair flows over her shoulders, bangs at the front hiding
her face as she silohettes herself on the light.

woman slowly lifts her head up, hair hanging down over her face
and obscuring most of it. Finally, as the second of the song
begins, she throws her arms out to the side in a crucifix pose
and flicks her head back, her hair flying back over her shoulders
and revealing her face. A huge pop occurs as a stream of
silver sparks fall from the screen above her, the light behind
her blacking out. She ignores any sort of minor pain that
the sparks would be causing her as three silver fireworks shoot
off from the top of the tron to fly off and hit sets above the
ring, causing minor explosions and the lasers to switch back to
thrown again ###

the middle of the entranceway and begins to make her way down the ramp
sparks suddenly fly up from either side of the entrance ramp to
shower down over her, creating a tunnel of sorts due to the
arching shape. Riona's typical neutral gaze not showing much of
her thoughts towards the crowd.
The arching shape keeps her from specifically reaching out
for high fives, but she doesn't bother to stop the few pats on
the back she gets through the tunnel of sparks. Riona stops in
front of the ladder in the middle of the entranceway, and just
stares... and gives it the bird before walking around it. She
the bottom of the ramp as the sparks finally dissipate, looking
bup into the ring for a few moments before walking over to and up
the stairs. She quickly climbs up to the top turnbuckle and snaps
off a crucifix pose as
silver pyro shoots up from the other three turnbuckles with a
loud pop as soon as the chorus begins.
Emerson: RIOOOONA... LANGLLLYYYY!!

Riona doesn't look too pleased with Jamie's choice of gimmicks here.
But I am... I've got a great view for when Riona climbs...
McDaniel: Ignoring that... But yes, she's shown her distaste for ladders in the past...
Well, y'know, she's only won one in her national career, and that was a
squash. She crushed this girl Adrianna Garcia in like, 5 minutes
in PCW... Otherwise, she's had nothing but bad luck under these
holds the pose there while the chorus goes on, the lasers finally
ending. Finally, Riona lowers her arms and hops down into to her
corner, doing some last minute stretches and getting ready for
the match as the house
lights dim, the image of a red ouroboros flashing on the monitor...
Emerson: Introducing her opponent, from
cheering, "The Pot" subtly begins to play over the arena.

As the sounds
of Tool kick up and the bass begins to resonate, Jamie Flynn appears at
the top of the ramp to the ovation of his fans. Wearing his trademark
Aviators and a black hoodie, he raises his arm to them and begins his
walk to the ring. He stops at the ladder sitting in the middle of
the isle and smirks, patting it and pointing to Riona. Riona
looks like she's trying to pretend that as she continues to stretch and
McDaniel: Meanwhile... Jamie looks pretty damn satisfied with himself here
. Riona has got to be kicking herself for letting Flynn choose the gimmick.
Riona's had it coming though. All those times that she chose the
gimmick in her two reigns as Grizzly Beer Champion, she's had this
karma coming. It's time for Riona Langly to be out of her element
McDaniel: However, you gotta remember... each time that Riona DID not
choose the gimmick in Grizzly Beer matches, she won. She beat
Vicious to win the title in a Chairs Are Legal match, she beat SNS at High Stakes
in the Explosive Barbed Wire Death Match, and then she beat The
Kumkquat Kid in the Carnival Nights match at A Farewell to Arms.
Rentfro: So, it's the irresistable force meeting the immovable object
again, eh? And it was a C4 Barbed Wire Rope Texas Time Bomb Death
Match to be precise.
### Foot in mouth and head up ass ###

under the bottom rope and rolls into the ring. He walks briskly to a
corner and hops up, throwing his Intercontinental Title high into the
air with one arm and soaking in a few more moments of the crowds'
### Now you're weeping shades of
cozened indigo ###
### Musta got lemon juice up in
your... eye! ###

Removing his shades and sweater, he
hands them off to an official outside the
ring. The referee for this match, Andrew Jansen, is handed the IC
Championship from Flynn and calls for the harness to be lowered.
Johnson hangs the title in the harness and points upwards, and
the championship begins to rise towards the top of the tent that covers
the ring in the case of rain. Both Riona and Jamie watch it as
they finish stretching in each of their respective corners, waiting for
the bell and for hell to begin.
* * DING DING DING * * *
immediately starts the match as she rushes at Jamie and delivers a
quick running forearm that pushes the champion back into the corner.
She follows it up with a stiff European Uppercut that sends Jamie
reeling. Riona looks to follow it up, but Flynn recovers and
shoves her down to the mat. Riona tumbles backwards to her feet,
and the two immediately race forward, each putting a hand behind the
other's head as they start to slug it out in the middle of the ring!
Jamie starts getting the advantage in this exchange, as Riona's
strikes start to slow down, so he presses the advantage by pulling her
forward into a gut-wrench position. Snapping to, Riona powers out
of the hold and spins around to Jamie's back, grabbing his arm into a
hammerlock. Riona pushes down on the arm, already restarting the
work that had been done on it 3 weeks ago on Rampage, and Flynn
immediately tries to counter by reaching for Riona's head. Riona
pulls back though, so Jamie goes to plan B and starts hammering elbows
behind him, smacking Riona in the face several times before she lets go
of the hold. Jamie spins around, and is met with an old friend as
Riona blisters a chop right across his bare chest. Jamie visibly
grunts from the pain, and quickly fires back one of his own.
Riona hesitates from the impact, and Jamie makes for the ropes,
hoping to catch Riona off guard with a nasty jumping knee to the face.
However, Riona instinctively dodges off to the side, running the
ropes herself behind Jamie to catch him with a Lariat, but Jamie ducks
and smashes a EuroCut right into Riona. To Jamie's dismay, Riona
doesn't go down with the blow, instead using the momentum to nail Flynn
with a Discus Lariat that sends Flynn scrambling to the mat.
Jamie quickly recovers, getting to his feet, only to be met with
a classic Arm Drag as Riona flings him to the mat, and keeps ahold of
his previously injured left arm.
Rentfro: These two are not wasting any time in making this a physical competition.
finds himself at a disadvantage as Riona has all the leverage in this
scenario and she's not afraid to exploit it as she yanks on the arm and
hammers down forearms to the back of the neck for good measure.
Jamie manages, despite Riona's attempts, to get back to his feet
and spins the hold around to where the two of them are in a collar and
elbow tie-up. Jamie gets the advantage and pushes Riona back into
the ropes, where he breaks the hold and smashes a forearm right into
her face. Riona turns her head a bit from the impact, and then
roars back with a nasty forearm of her own that pushes Jamie off of
her. Riona rushes forward and slams her knee into Jamie's gut,
spinning him with a kitchen sink and sending him right back down to the
mat, where Riona reapplies her armbar. Riona continues to throw
pressure into the arm, hoping to reinjure it and go right back to where
she was 3 weeks ago. However, Jamie quickly gets back to his
feet, even with Riona's pressure, and tries to elbow his way out of the
hold, but Riona dodges her head enough to where his elbows can't hit
her. After a couple attempts, Jamie hits a desperation move and
slams his leg into Riona with a low blow. Now, this doesn't hurt
her like it would a male opponent, but it does cause Riona to break the
hold, and there's nothing that Andrew Jansen can do about it.
Riona slumps down to one knee, but Flynn brings her back to her
feet and into a waistlock before lifting her up and throwing her in a
Overhead Belly-to-Belly suplex. Riona instinctively rolls onto
her stomach and gets on all fours, but Jamie uses his speed as he
bounces off the ropes and slams his feet right into the side of Riona's
head with a nasty stiff running dropkick.
McDaniel: As if there was any doubt.
Rentfro: No, and Riona is showing her dominance too. You go, girl!
McDaniel: That dropkick must have been one Hell of a wake-up call for Riona.
Rentfro: I don't know, Jon. Seems more like it would have knocked her out cold.
Jamie pulls Riona back to her feet and whips her into the ropes, but
Riona manages to grab ahold of the top rope and stop her momentum.
Jamie charges her and attempts to boot her face off with a Yakuza
kick, but Riona ducks out of the way and Jamie instead crotches himself
on the top rope. There's a bit of a groan from the male side of
the audience, and shock on Jamie's face as he bounces a bit on the top
rope, but he's not there long as Riona runs the ropes and slams her
Reebok right into the side of Jamie's head with a Yakuza kick of her
own that sends Jamie straight to the floor. Riona follows him
down, and grabs him by his short hair, holding it as she nails him with
several of her stiff forearms. Jamie quickly rakes the eyes to
stop Riona's momentum, and then whips her right into the barricade,
following her and ramming a knee right into the side of her head as
soon as she hits the barricade. After a couple more knees to her
skull, Jamie grabs Riona by the hair and throws her over the barricade
and into the crowd. Jamie follows her over the top, but is
surprised as Riona smacks him in the face with a thrown chair!
Jamie staggers from the blow, and Riona pulls him forward into a
front-facelock before DDTing him right into the concrete floor.
Riona pops to her feet and quickly cracks Jamie in the kidneys
with one of her stiff soccer kicks that turns Jamie over to his back
before she mounts him and starts to hammer him with stiff elbows.
The crowd around the pair cheer wildly as Jamie regains control,
swinging his legs and turning the mount over so he's on top before he
starts to pummel Riona with punches of his own.
Rentfro: God damn! Didn't anyone ever teach Flynn not to hit a woman?
McDaniel: I wouldn't let Riona hear you say that. When she enters that ring she's a warrior first and a woman second.
The pair go through several reversals before Jamie regains control and
breaks the mount. Jamie catches his breath a bit as Riona rolls
to her feet with her back turned to Jamie. She turns around just
in time to see Jamie as he spears her right into the gut and into a set
of abandoned chairs. Jamie pulls Riona out of the chair and
immediately sends her back to the floor with a bodyslam. Riona
arches in pain, but Flynn adds to that as he drops an elbow right into
her sternum three times in rapid succession. And to finally put
her down, Jamie grabs one of those abandoned chairs and folds it up
before slamming it down in a nasty chair shot. Looking down at
his rival, Jamie turns towards the ramp and starts to leave as a group
of fans help Riona back up. Jamie gets a foot on the top of the
barricade to leave, but suddenly Riona flies back into the match as she
runs up and grabs his neck, hitting an Ace Crusher that sends them both
over the barricade and onto the steel ramp. Quickly bringing
Jamie to his feet, Riona involves the ladder on the ramp for the first
time in this match as she whips Jamie right into it, knocking it over.
Jamie stumbles to his feet as Riona reaches over the barricade
and grabs another folded chair. Riona rushes at Jamie, looking
for a knockout blow, but Jamie just barely ducks the attempted
headshot, and straight kicks Riona right in the stomach as she turns
around. Riona drops the chair as she stumbles up the ramp, and
Jamie picks it up and chucks it right into her head as he follows.
The chair strikes hard, and Jamie follows it up as he runs up and
curb stomps Riona's face right into the ramp!
Fans: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Rentfro: Holy shit is right. If Riona's not busted open I'll be surprised as Hell.
McDaniel: Surprisingly, she isn't.
Jamie yanks Riona back to her feet with a handful of hair, and heaves
her right into the steel entrance set shoulder-first. Riona takes
a seat with her back to the set, but this turns out to be a very bad
idea as Jamie picks the chair back up and runs at Riona, jumping up and
dropkicking the chair right into her face! Riona slumps down face
first into the set, but even Jamie knows that this isn't going to stop
Riona for too long, and then he spots the glass panels on the side of
the set that look like the Canadian flag. Dragging Riona to her
feet, he smashes her with a couple of elbows before giving her a stiff
knee to the gut and pulling her over to the glass. He shoves
Riona up against the wall and to keep her there, adds in some nasty
stiff elbows that could be heard in the upper-reaches of the stadium.
Stepping back to get some space as Riona leans against glass
dazed, Jamie charges forward to spear Riona... AND SHE ROLLS OUT OF THE
WAY! JAMIE SPEARS HIMSELF RIGHT THROUGH THE GLASS!
The Winnipeg fans go crazy as Jamie lies in the glass motionless.
Taking a moment to look at the title hanging over the ring, Riona
turns back to Jamie and follows him into the bowels of the set.
Taking ahold of Jamie by his shorts, Riona pulls him to a knee
before locking in a butterfly lock and giving him a double arm DDT
right into the glass! Jamie rolls to his back and we see that
blood is starting to flow down his forehead from the glass. Riona
has a smirk on her face as she sees Jamie's blood, and yanks him back
to his feet once more before doubling him over with a knee to the gut
before pulling him into a standing head-scissors. The crowd
immediately reacts, but Jamie knows exactly the predicament that he's
in and drops to his knees, taking Riona down to the floor with a
takedown before he stands and slingshots her right into another panel
of glass! The glass doesn't break, so Jamie rolls to his feet,
slams a few elbows into his rivals back, and then SENDS THEM BOTH THROUGH WITH A RUNNING DOUBLE KNEE LIFT!!!
McDaniel: These two are going to kill one another at this rate.
Rentfro: The rivalry between these two borders on homicidal hatred, I swear.
Both Jamie and Riona lie motionless on the ramp, and it's Jamie that's
first to his feet. He stares down at Riona, who is slowly
starting to move, and looks at his title before walking back towards
the ring. He's looking a little rough and haggard as he reaches
the forgotten ladder and picks up up and carries it down to the ring.
Sliding it in, he turns to see Riona still down on the ramp, and
slides back in, setting the ladder up. He positions it just right
under the belt and starts to climb, a little gingerly thanks to the
blood in his face and Riona's work on his left arm. He reaches
about half way to the title before the crowd comes alive and he gets
thrown off of the ladder by Riona, as she springboard dropkicks the
ladder. Jamie flies off and onto the top rope throat first,
springing into the air and onto the mat. Riona doesn't waste time
trying to set the ladder back up as it lies on the mat, instead rolling
to the outside and reaching under the ring, grabbing her favorite trash
can full of weapons and tossing it into the ring. She looks
behind her, grabs the chair that she brought down from the entrance set
and throws that into the ring as well, smacking it on Jamie's face as
it lands. Finally, she reaches down once again and pulls out, to
a big pop, a TABLE! She slides this into the ring with her and
leaves it there as she reaches grabs the lid of her trash can and
measures Jamie up before she smacks him right in the face with the
handle side of the lid! Jamie falls like a redwood tree to the
mat, and Riona kicks him in the side of the head for good measure
before she takes the lid and wedges it into the corner. Grabbing
Jamie, she looks to throw him head-first into the lid, but Jamie
reverses it and sends Riona crashing into the opposite corner shoulder
first! Riona staggers backwards, and right into Jamie's reverse
waistlock before he lifts her up and flings her backwards with a German
Suplex right into the chair!
Rentfro: JESUS H. CHRIST, HE BROKE HER NECK!
McDaniel: Calm down, Brian. Riona's still fighting, even if that move had to have taken a serious toll on her head and neck.
Rentfro: What is it going to take to end this match? No, don't tell me. I don't want to see this end!
Riona folds up like an accordian from the throw, and Jamie looks a
little winded as he gets to his feet. He takes the ladder, it
still being fully together, and turns it upside down before shoving
Riona between it and standing on the supports! Riona screams as
Jamie wedges the ladder shut on her, with the added pressure of the
supports digging into her back so much that it actually tears a part of
the back of her tanktop. Seeing all the damage he can do from
this spot has been done, Jamie hops off of the ladder and leaves Riona
lying as he grabs her own trash can of weaponry and empties it onto the
mat. He looks a little impressed by Riona's selection as we see a
Singapore cane, a pair of brass knuckles, a hockey stick, an aluminum
baseball bat, a cookie sheet, a two-by-four wrapped in barbed wire, a
small bag full of who knows what, and a steel chain. After gently
clearing the area of the weapons, Jamie takes the can as Riona gets to
her feet and slams it down over her head, and then for good
measure, gives the can a spinning heel kick that sends Riona to the
mat. Riona rolls around trying to get the can off of her head,
but Jamie doesn't make it easy for her as he grabs the steel chair and
slams it down onto the can. Looking over at the ladder, Jamie
folds it back up and then proceeds to drop it on top of the can as
well. Jamie spots the table that Riona had slid into the ring and
sets it up near the corner, not noticing Riona escaping the can and
grabbing the Singapore cane. Jamie turns around to grab Riona
and... CRACK! Riona
NAILS him with the cane right in the face! Flynn rolls to the
outside upon impact, and Riona follows, cracking the cane on his back
once more before tossing it back into the ring. Jamie gets back
to all fours, so Riona drops him face-first into the floor with a
running Rocker Dropper!
McDaniel: A vicious move by Riona, leveling the Intercontinental Champion!
Rentfro: You know that that move is the finishing move of her mentor Brian Blade, right? He calls it the Cutting Edge.
McDaniel: With execution like that, no wonder the Celestial Trigger is his prized pupil.
Riona snaps off one of her crux poses to the delight of the crowd, and
then reaches under the ring again, pulling out a flourescent light
tube! Jamie gets back to his feet as Riona waits, getting herself
ready... She charges and it's a swing and a miss again! Jamie
goes for a roundhouse kick, but Riona ducks and SMASHES THE LIGHT TUBE ONTO HIS LEFT SHOULDER!
Bits of broken glass litter the floor as Jamie's arm is covered
with little cuts and pieces of glass to match his face... Langly smirks
as Jamie slowly rises, discarding the broken light-tube and lifting
Jamie up before bodyslamming him right into the broken glass!
Flynn arches his back from the pain while Riona slides back into
the ring, leaving him on the outside, and sets the ladder back up to
climb. In a desperation move, Jamie finds a second ladder under
the ring and slides it in with just enough force to wobble the ladder
and cause Riona to gingerly fall off, although she's still able to stay
on her feet. Jamie slides into the ring, favoring his bloody left
arm, and smacks Riona with a nasty knife-edge using his good arm.
Not taking the offense lightly, Riona returns the favor with a
stiff chop of her own. The two battered warriors trade chops left
and right as the title hangs over them ominously. Riona, being
somewhat fresher, starts to get the advantage and pushes Jamie into the
ropes. She whips him across the ring and leans down for a
back-bodydrop that would send him into the cookie sheet backfirst, but
she shows her hand too early and Jamie is able to grab her head and
smash her into the sheet headfirst with Riona's own Whiplash Tornado
DDT! Jamie rolls to the apron as Riona groggily rolls to her
feet... He springboards off the top rope... SPINGBOARD DEVIL'S PLAN...NO! Riona cracks Jamie with the the REALITY CHECK OUT OF NOWHERE!
McDaniel: Just when you thought Jamie was about to finish it Riona Langly changes the entire landscape of this match!
Rentfro: You remember my not wanting this match to ever end? I just may have been right, wow.
McDaniel: There's a first time for everything, Rentfro.
Riona slumps down to one knee as Jamie tumbles backwards from the
impact into the corner. Taking the second ladder that Jamie
brought into the ring, Riona drives it right into his chest.
Leaving it there, Riona takes a step backwards and then launches
forward, dropkicking the ladder right into Flynn's chest. Jamie
groans from the wind being knocked out of him, but does manage to push
the ladder out of the way before Riona is able to dropkick him again.
However, Riona simply takes the ladder and leans it against the
top rope before dragging Jamie out of the corner... She goes to whip
Jamie right into the ladder, but Flynn shows some gutsy resolve and
reverses, sending Riona face-first into the steel. Riona rolls
over onto her back in order to breath a little better, and is met with
a cookie sheet right to the face as Jamie clocks her with it.
Riona slumps into the ladder, and Jamie looks to the top rope and
to the fans before clocking her with the sheet once more for good
measure. He climbs up, taking some time because of his arm, and
then leaps, going for a Shooting Star Press but meeting nothing but
metal as Riona rolls off at just the last second. Crawling over
to the small pile of weapons Jamie removed from her can, she grabs the
small bag and opens it... POURING OUT THOUSANDS OF THUMBTACKS AND
PIECES OF BROKEN GLASS! The crowd, of course, pops for the
hardcore tradition as Riona pulls Jamie to his feet and doubles him
over, positioning them both above the glass. Riona shouts out
DEVOLUTION!!! but this turns out to be a bad move as Flynn wakes up at
just the right time and powers Riona over his head with a back-bodydrop
that sends her right into the tacks and glass! Riona screams as
the glass and tacks stick into her body, but as she gets back to her
feet, she's KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT
with a massive chairshot from Flynn! Riona falls right onto her
stomach, and Jamie grabs her by the hair and lifts her up, and we see
that Riona is gushing blood from her forehead!
Rentfro: NO! Her beautiful face!!
Rentfro: I mean, what a horrible blow.
Jamie casually dumps Riona on the outside and grabs one of the ladders
still in the ring, setting it up and beginning to climb. He's
having trouble, only really have one arm to work with, but still, he
climbs and he climbs until he's actually up at the title... He swipes
at the belt trying to touch it, but it only causes it to swing back and
forth tantalizingly over his head. Seeing that he's going to have
to leap a little for the belt, he waits for it to slow down and jumps,
GRABBING AHOLD OF THE TITLE! The crowd pops as Jamie tries to
pull it down, but it looks as though the belt is jammed up there... He
starts to pull apart the tabs... AND HE GETS HIT WITH A THROWN BASEBALL
BAT BY RIONA! Jamie stumbles a bit, but holds onto the harness as
he kicks the ladder over! Jamie's just hanging up there, unable
to do anything as Riona slowly makes her way onto the apron, blood
dripping down from her face. She looks up at Jamie as he tries to
get ahold of the belt to end the match, but he loses his grip with his
weakened left arm, leaving him only up there with one arm... Riona
looks up, springboards off the top... PICTURE OF PERFECTION TO JAMIE FLYNN! HE TURNS INSIDE OUT AND LANDS BACKFIRST RIGHT ONTO THE TACKS AND GLASS!!!!
Riona lands weakly as blood drips down from her face onto the
mat, but slowly starts to get to her feet. She drags herself over
to the fallen ladder and sets it back up as Jamie slowly starts to
crawl out of the pile of glass and tacks. Riona begins the slow
climb up the ladder as Jamie grabs ahold of the ring ropes and sees the
second ladder lying there. He pulls himself to his feet, glass
and tacks sticking out of his back like they are on Riona's as he grabs
the second ladder and leans it up against the first ladder. Riona
gets to the top of the ladder, having climbed up a little quicker after
seeing Jamie moving about, but runs into the same problem as the ladder
is just short of where the title is... She reaches up as far as she
can, just touching it... AND JAMIE RUNS UP THE SECOND LADDER, SPEARING HER OFF AND SENDING THEM BOTH THROUGH THE TABLE!!!!
Fans: P-DUB-EH P-DUB-EH P-DUB-EH!!!
McDaniel: You folks at home can hear the deafening roar of the 50,000 plus fans here in attendance.
Rentfro: Who can blame them? This has GOT to be a match of the year contender if not THE match of the year.
The fans are marking out like crazy as both ladders tumble to the mat
amongst all the carnage... Weapons everywhere, blood stains all over
the mat, broken glass and tacks, a broken table, and two broken
wrestlers. Jamie is the first to move, briefly checking Riona's
pulse out of some measure of good will before crawling out of the
wreckage of the table and slowly getting to his feet. He drags
himself over to the second ladder, having noticed that it was bigger
than the first one, and weakly pulls it to the center of the ring,
kicking some of the extraneous weapons out of the ring and making a
good spot for the ladder. Having checked the position, he starts
to climb, sweat and blood making his grip a little harder to handle.
Amazingly, Riona starts to move as well, crawling out of remains
of the table, but Jamie doesn't pay this any mind... He has this match
won, all he has to do is climb up and get his title... Rung, by rung,
by rung he climbs as the title is just inches away from him... CRACK!!!
Riona whacks him with a chair, stopping his momentum as she
climbs up the same side behind him. The fans are speechless as to
what Riona's going to do, but as she slips an arm under Jamie's, they
come alive... Riona locks her legs on the ladder as she slips her
other arm undeneath Flynn's, and immediately he tries to shove her off,
knowing that if she locks those arms, it's over for him. However,
his left arm is too weak and he's too tired to stop her as she locks
her hands behind his neck... The fans don't hear Riona, but the
cameras and mics catch her as she screams out at Jamie, "I MIGHT BE GOING DOWN IN FLAMES BUT YOU'LL BURN WITH MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!" as she pushes off the ladder and plunges both her and Jamie down to the mat with a NUCLEAR DETONATOR OFF THE TOP OF THE FUCKING LADDER!!! DAAAAAANNNNNNGGGGGEEEEERRRROOOOUUUUSSSSSSS!!!!!!!
McDaniel: .... *struck speechless by what just transpired*
I know I mentioned that the only way to end this match would be for one
of them to die... but I never wanted it to really end that way!
Every person in the sold-out Canad Inns Stadium is on their feet as
both Riona Langly and Jamie Flynn lie motionless on the mat... A chant
of 'THIS IS AWESOME' starts to resonate throughout the stadium as the
15 foot ladder stands tall above the two fallen wrestlers.
Astonishingly, both Riona and Jamie start to crawl to their feet
and to a side of the ladder, each of them looking up at the title more
than looking at their opponent as they weakly scale up towards
immortality... Riona gets to the top first... ELBOW BY JAMIE!
CHOP BY RIONA! RIONA REACHES UP AND GRABS THE TITLE!
