The scene opens up backstage of the UWL Arena, just outside the locker room of Five Star. It is easy to tell as the Five Star emblem is on the outside of the door. The two men standing in the hall though look a bit out of place as Josh Eagles & Shawn Stevens are standing outside the door with smiles on their faces and BTE shirts on their backs.
Stevens: You are 100% sure that nobody is here?
Eagles: Positive, I made sure that they ended up spread across the entire arena!
Stevens: How exactly did you manage that one?
Josh gets a sly smile on his face.
Eagles: I had Kip tell that the BTE had put posters all over their merchandise stands ... and Kip was gullible enough to believe they actually had five merchandise stands spread across the UWL Arena!
Stevens: Why am I not shocked that worked? I should know by now if a plan presented by you sounds ludicrous, it is likely going to work. Anyway lets get this done.
Josh nods and both Josh and Shawn lean down to pick up duffle bags as they enter the locker room of the famous Five Star. Both men are instantly taken back by the color that hits them. The floor instead of being a normal floor is a shag rug of both orange and red, the walls are also painted red done in the last few days. To the left of the door is a row of lockers with each member of Five Stars name written on them. On the left wall there are giant picture frames, five of them. Two empty and the others filled with Valour, Jones, and Callaway each holding their respective titles.
The far wall is covered in posters of the Five Star members all in various different, well arrogant poses to say the least and down the center of the room is a row of padded benches. The right wall led to what looked to be private showers. Josh and Shawn just stare around the room for a moment.
Eagles: Dude, isn't this like HALF the size of the BTE locker room?
Stevens: Is it really fair to compare? I mean we do OWN an entire wing of the UWL Arena.
Eagles: I know, I know. But I mean come on no hot tub or pool table, they don't even have their own beverage machine!
Stevens: Are you starting to feel sorry for them Beagles? We can NOT do this if you like.
Josh smiles and shakes his head no and drops the bag and starts routing around, eventually pulling out a pry bar.
Eagles: I'll start on the lockers, you get the showers.
Josh and Shawn high five and trot off to respective sides of the room. Shawn disappears into the shower and Eagles goes to work opening lockers and tearing off name plates overall doing a whole bunch of stuff. This goes on for a few minutes and Shawn emerges from the bath room and heads over to the benches in the middle as Eagles moves over to the pictures. They are very careful about what they are doing and after a bit they meet back in the center of the room.
Stevens: Oh you know it. What did you do to the lockers?
Eagles: Well I replaced the name tags on each one as you can see.
Shawn walks over and the camera follows and they start walking down the line of lockers look at Josh's work. Each name plate has been replaced with a new one. Shawn starts reading them out loud.
Stevens: Angela Valour, Kassidy Ulysses, Maggie Gunner, Daniella Jones, Stephanie Callaway. I'm not going to lie Josh, this ... it isn't your most inspiring work.
Eagles: You don't think so?
Stevens: You just made them girls names, didn't even really get creative with it. I'm a bit let down.
Eagles: Well I promise I made up for it with the inside of the lockers.
Shawn nods and goes to open up the last locker but Josh freaks and grabs his hand to stop him.
Eagles: NOT a good idea!
Stevens: What did you do to them?
Eagles: All of these doors are set so when they open they will explode with paint, silly string, eggs, the works my friend. They'll be DAYS cleaning it all up!
This Shawn looks intrigued by and he pats Josh on the back.
Stevens: Childish, but effective!
Shawn's eyes then catch the pictures on the other wall and he smiles and walks over to them. All of the pictures inside of the frames have been replaced with pictures of Josh Eagles & Shawn Stevens and their various different career accomplishments. Below the pictures it now says, "What real success looks like".
Stevens: Now THAT is sure to get under their skin. Where are their pictures?
Eagles: Ripped up and used as confetti in the locker bombs.
Stevens: NICE! This is going to be epic! So inside the showers I loosened two heads so that when they turn on they'll just rocket off and clock whoever turned them on. I gummed up two of the heads from the inside so they won't work and the only one that does work I switched around the hot & cold taps.
Eagles: So covered in all of this and unable to wash any of it off?
Stevens: Not only that, I pulled up the cushion liner to the benches and all of them are now completely lined with tiny little thumb tacks.
Josh grabs his own butt wincing at the pricking that would cause.
Stevens: Well our job is complete then. Operation mess with Five Star is underway!
Eagles: Well not 100% complete!
Josh points over to the giant poster and Josh and Shawn share a smile. Reaching into their bags they each pull out cans of spray paint and walk over. When they are done in big Green and Pink letters across all the posters it says.
B T E WAS HERE
Josh and Shawn step back to admire their handy work and give each other a high five. The put the cans back into their back and each pull out a small bottle of bleach. The throw the bags over their shoulder and walk backwards towards the exit pouring bleach all over the very colorful shag carpet on their way. The then throw the bottles of bleach to the side and smiling at their handy work exit the dressing room. Just as they do they can here Five Star down the hall.
Valour: When I get my hands on Kip!
Josh and Shawn quickly duck around the corner and listen as Five Star continues to rant and head towards the locker room. They hear the door open and a large "WHAT THE HELL" come from the locker room and BTE run down the hall sticking door stops into the door as chaos goes on the inside. Voices can be heard shouting they are going to kill the BTE, they bang on the door realizing they can't get out, a small pop is heard as a locker explodes as someone tries to look for missing things. Josh and Shawn just stand outside the door laughing before walking off after a high five.
Stevens: Now THAT is how you irritate someone.
Eagles: Can I say it?
Stevens: Oh, you can say it!
Eagles: BEST PRANK EVA ...
One more high five takes place as Josh and Shawn disappear around the corner.

Jimmy Riley vs. Andrew Franklin
The guitar open of "The Zoo" fills the arena and the fans begin to boo immediately as the strobes flash around the entrance. Once the song gets into the beat Andrew Franklin emerges from behind the black curtain. The fans boo louder as Franklin looks at all of them with disdain.

Riley hops up onto the apron before leaping over the top rope into the ring. He quickly spins into the middle of the ring, throwing up both hands to whatever modest reaction the fans give him.

The scene cuts backstage to Jimmy Riley, who is still covered in sweat after his hard fought match earlier in the evening. Riley is leaning against a table drinking out of a water bottle.

"Thanks man, I appreciate it." Riley answers back politely. "But I know its-"

Jacob Davies vs. Jonathan Collins
The lights dim as the crowd starts to buzz with the string opening of "Warning Signs" by The Anix.
A wretched point of view Disguised, so militant and worse than any crimes we know...
Stepping out from the back to a mixed reaction is Jonathan Collins. Though the hood from his jacket hides his eyes, the smirk on his face is clearly obvious as he takes a deep breath and takes the slow walk down to the ring.
Barry Sharpe: Jonathan Collins made quite an impression last week with a win over Flap Flanagan
Fred Overstreet: I believe he dubbed it "a statement", Sharpe.
Collins, instead of picking up his walk during the pre chorus, takes his time getting down to the ring, stepping in just as the chorus starts, climbing up the steps and strolling in. Removing the hood, he stops to pose before taking the microphone from Gene Anderson before he can properly announce him.
Jonathan Collins: Thank you, Mr. Anderson, but my introduction won't be necessary. I believe that if you watched your television last week, you know that my name is Jonathan Collins. Some of you may know that and like me, and that is fantastic. There are others who don't know me, or know me and don't like me, and that's fantastic as well. I guess what I'd like to do at this point is show to the world that my statement has been made. Earlier tonight, I took care of some business, and without any further hesitation, I would like to invite my opponent to come out to the ring. Son, step on out and show the world what an impetuous child you are.
No music plays. No lights play either, but after a moment, a very foul looking Jacob Davies steps out from the back in simple black trunks and boots. His music and trademark gear are gone, all thanks to Jonathan Collins hijacking it earlier and setting it on fire. Davies looks absolutely irate as Collins leans in a corner, arms on the ropes, a gigantic grin on his face. Davies doesn't hesitate to get down the aisle and into the ring, charging at Collins. He gets a few shots into the face before whipping Collins into the ropes, who nails a handspring against the ropes, going for a back elbow, but Davies catches him and attempts a dragon suplex, but Collins lands on his feet, and immediately hits him with a lungblower. Davies rolls out of the ring, incredibly upset as Collins drops to a knee and extends his arms in a manner that is more of a "are you upset?" taunt than a play for the crowd.
Barry Sharpe: Collins has seemed to really rattle Davies in the opening moments of this match, and the crowd is starting to slowly warm up to the veteran, recently coming back to action after what essentially amounts to an eight-year layoff!
Fred Overstreet: Collins looks like he got into Davies' head early into this match. Davies is trying to get retribution for the actions Collins took as a violation of some unwritten code of pro wrestling, and his irrational thinking has thrown him off his game in the early going!
Ned Shannon starts to make the count as Collins finally gets an opportunity to remove his jacket, Davies finally deciding to get back into the ring around seven. With the bell finally officially ringing, Collins circles the ring to size up Davies, who meets him for a collar elbow tieup. Davies gets the immediate advantage and puts Collins in a headlock, who wraps his arms around Davies for a side suplex, but Davies wrenches in before attempting a takeover. Davies starts grinning a little smugly, yelling to the crowd that he got one over on the old man, before Collins pushes him off to the ropes, catching Davies with a picture perfect dropkick before Davies looks upset. Davies again tries to rush Collins, before he sidesteps him and sends him into the corner, Collins running immediately after him to hit a climbing shining wizard in the corner. Collins immediately slides out of the ring to the apron before nailing Davies with the Glasseating Smile.
Barry Sharpe: Collins with that impressive flip forward ace crusher, and Davies is down again!
Fred Overstreet: He calls that the Glasseating Smile, and there's a chance Jacob's mouth could look like he chewed on some glass if Collins hit that with enough impact.
Collins doesn't play up to the crowd, but immediately looks to go to lock in ECHO-16, but Davies hammers him in the face enough to back him off, giving him a chance to get up and lunge at Collins with a full force lariat, but Collins ducks under and spins Davies around for him to leap up and attempt a hurricanrana, but Davies stops him and holds him up as he was going to hit a powerbomb. Collins does his best to lean back and finally does, releasing the hold his legs have on Davies' neck, but remains balanced on his hands as Jacob tries to pick him back up to get the momentum again, but Collins manages to smash Jacob's head between his calves, forcing him to break, and allow Collins to roll back onto his feet. The momentary daze gives Collins a moment to run forward to attempt a tilt a whirl headscissors, but at this point, Davies is ready and immediately drops him with a sidewalk slam. Davies sits up and slams his hand on the mat, clearly agitated, but Jon remains dazed on the mat.
Barry Sharpe: What an incredible series of moves by Collins, but Davies' counter quickly puts him in control!
Fred Overstreet: Jacob is trying to make a statement to Collins tonight. He's done more in UWL than Collins has and possibly ever will, so it's time to see what Davies can do against the veteran.
Davies sits Collins upright and immediately backs up to give him space to land a football kick to the back of Collins. He immediately begins wincing, and Davies kicks again. And again and again repeatedly before Collins rolls onto his side in agony. Davies grabs him and sits him back up before running to the ropes and charging forward to him, nailing him with a sliding forearm smash.
Barry Sharpe: INCREDIBLE SLIDING D BY DAVIES!
Fred Overstreet: Davies using stuff out of the arsenal nobody saw coming tonight to prove his point, and Collins looks out on his back!
Davies immediately goes for the pin.
Collins, and Jonathan immediately rolls onto his side again as he tries to collect himself. Davies gets up and immediately grabs him by the head to pick him up and whip him into the corner. Collins hits the pads, and Davies charges, but Collins puts up his right leg with the brace on. Davies smirks as he stops soon enough to catch it, dragon whipping Collins down to the mat as he definitely feels the pain of that move. Davies points to his head to the crowd to prove that he's outwitting his opponent, reaching to take off the kneebrace of Collins. Collins tries to fight him off the leg, but a stiff shot to the face takes Collins out of the fight long enough for Davies to make his move, removing the brace. Davies immediately locks in a single leg crab, leaving Collins to scream and wince and Davies to scream out for him to tap. Shannon goes to check on Collins who shakes off that he won't tap out, willing himself to the ropes to break the hold. He finally makes it, and Ned begins to count, Davies only breaking the count at four, the last possible moment.
Barry Sharpe: Davies is making a point here, working over the tender knee of Jonathan Collins.
Fred Overstreet: It's good strategy for him. It effectively takes out such moves of Collins like the Parallax Shock and the End of Silence. If Davies works it over enough, he also leaves Jon questionable to hit The Pandorica Driver.
Davies backs up enough before grabbing Collins by his injured leg and starts kicking at it, attempting to weaken it. On the fifth kick, he gets close enough, and Collins grabs him to roll him into a small package, only getting a two count. Collins gets up quickly, and as Davies gets to a knee, Collins attempts the Parallax Shock, only to fall flat on his face, his knee hurting too much.
Barry Sharpe: The knee just doesn't want to cooperate! Collins gave out on that Parallax Shock attempt!
Fred Overstreet: This could be a huge turning point right now, because Davies could be smelling blood!
Davies is smirking, loving every bit of it while he plays to the crowd. Collins is down and his fist is pounding the mat in pain. As Davies approaches Collins as he gets to his knees, he smirks and slaps Jonathan in the face a few times, smirking and screaming at him to give up. Collins starts trying to land a few weak shots to the guts, all before he picks him up and hoists him up for a vertical suplex. Collins' legs start moving to get enough momentum to reverse it, or break the suplex, and when he does, he lands in back of Davies...on his feet. Davies hears the thump and thinks Collins has just crumpled to the mat, leaving him to play up to the crowd for a reaction. When he turns around, Collins is standing up right, shrugging with a grin of his own. Collins wiggles out his knee a bit before wagging his finger at Davies like he was disciplining him. Davies angrily charges Collins who side steps him to let him bounce off the ropes, and as soon as Davies rebounds, Collins uses the momentum to help him lift Davies up by under his arms and spin around, dropping him down with a Rydeen Bomb!
Barry Sharpe: Collins was playing possum the entire time, and just nails the End of Silence on Jacob Davies!
Fred Overstreet: It's a great veteran manuver by Collins! He let Davies get overconfident, and as he did, he let his guard down, and it's turned the tide!
The crowd starts warming up again as Collins uses the Rydeen Bomb to also set himself up for a pin, getting a two. Collins immediately grabs Davies' legs to get a jacknife pin, still only getting a two, and as Davies kicks out and sits up, Collins immediately bounces off the ropes and comes flying in with the Parallax Shock! Collins' hand slams the mat to encourage the crowd to get behind his momentum, starting to roll Davies over for a surfboard. Davies starts to scream, but it's no use as Collins looks down at him, shrugs, and gives him a curbstomp! Collins looks a little tired, but he's shaking out the kinks and looks ready to get back going.
Barry Sharpe: Jonathan Collins is gettin his second wind!
Collins pulls Davies up to his feet, he sends him off into the corner, as he does Angelo Valour makes his way down to the ring.
Barry Sharpe: What's Angelo Valour doing?
Fred Overstreet: Maybe he wants to watch this match.
Barry Sharpe: Sure he does.
Collins runs in at Davies, but Davies kicks Collins in his face, he stumbles back acorss the ring against the ropes. Collins moves off the ropes, as he does Angelo makes a motion to the back, as he does out comes Stephen Callaway. He moves around the ring, and onto the ring apron. The referee tries to get Callaway off the ring apron. Angelo grabs Collins around his ankle, he holds onto him, as Davies moves toward him. Angelo has something aroud his hand, he goes to hit Collins, as he gets loose of him, but Collins ducks, and he nails Davies landing flush into his face sending him falling straight back onto the mat. Valour looks in the ring, as Collins leans against the ropes shaken up.
Barry Sharpe: Someone get Angelo Valour and his pal Stephen Callaway out of here!
Collins looks up, he notices Davies laying on the mat, as a group of referees get Valour and Callaway to the back. Collins falls down grabbing a hold of Davies locking him into the ECHO-16 (arm trap inverted three-quarter facelock), but he's out cold. Collins locks the hold on tight, as the referee checks him, and notices he's out, and calls for the bell.
Gene Anderson: The winner of this match Jonathan Collins!!
Barry Sharpe: Jonathan Collins gets the win, but how will he react when he realizes what happened.
Fred Overstreet: He'll be upset because Valour was swinging at Collins!
Collins leaves the ring, as Davies raises up on the mat dazed and confused shaking his head wondering what's happened.

The picture cuts to the back, as Justin Brooks is walking through the back. Justin Brooks turns around a corner, and runs into...Robb Daniels. Justin looks at Robb confused, as Robb stands smiling from ear to ear.
Robb Daniels: That belt looks good on you champ--always knew you had it in you. You still have my number?
Justin Brooks: ...
Robb Daniels: Here take one of my cards--I'll be around. Give me a call--we'll do lunch...we have a lot of catching up to do.
Daniels turns and walks out of the picture leaving Justin Brooks with a very confused look on his face.

Gene Anderson: Introducing first from Charleston, South Carolina!! Weighing two hundred and thirty pounds!! Heath Savage!!
The spot light slowly focuses on the entrance way as Heath walks slowly down the aisle in a trance like state with a Kendo stick and looks at the fans at ringside with a crazed look on his face.
Something like a phenomena baby You’re something like a phenomena!
“Phenomena” plays throughout the arena and Leon Tyrell steps out from the back. He stands on the stage for a moment bobbing his head and singing along with the song before heading down to the ring.

We turn backstage to find Jacob Davies, dressed in noticeably low-key ring attire and pacing the halls – clearly agitated. He’s talking to himself through gritted teeth, practically rendering himself incoherent. Kip Anderson appears from the side of the camera, microphone in hand and looking a bit nervous. He slowly approaches Davies.
Kip Anderson: Jacob... are you okay?
Davies stops pacing and shoots daggers at Kip.
Jacob Davies: YOU!
Kip steps back, clearly startled.
Jacob Davies: Yes, you! You let this happen!
Davies reaches out and grabs Kip by the collar, pulling him nearly nose to nose.
Kip Anderson: I-I... I don’t know what you mean, Jacob... I-
Jacob Davies: SHUT UP! I saw you stand there and watch as Collins burned my stuff!
Kip cowers as he shouts, and just about manages to get a sentence out.
Kip Anderson: I-I didn’t know, J-Jacob. Honestly!
Jacob Davies: Of course you didn’t... no... no, how stupid of me...
Davies lets go of Kip of brushes the crease out of his shirt and jacket.
Jacob Davies: No... of course you didn’t know... you wouldn’t know what a senile old man is doing, would you?
A weak, forced smile appears across Davies’ face as he finishes smoothing out Kip’s jacket and pats him on the shoulder.
Jacob Davies: But... you know what I’m going to do, Kip? Hmm?
Kip shakes his head nervously.
Jacob Davies: I... I’m going to break him. Yeah – that’s right. I’m going to break him, and I’m going to make him regret the day that he decided to mess with me. You don’t *beep* with Jacob Davies. And he’ll learn soon enough...
He turns to the camera, and his smile quickly fades and he storms off. The camera turns to a clearly flustered Kip, who watches him leave and breathes a sigh of relief, then tells the camera to cut.

Josh Eagles vs. Kenny Flight
The keyboard intro begins and once it turns to guitars Kenny comes out from the back. He points once to the rafters and then runs all the way down to the ring. He slides in under the bottom rope.
Gene Anderson: Introducing first from Aviemore, Scotland! Weighing one hundred and sixty five pounds!! Kenny Flight!!
He gets up, jumps on to the top rope, balances long enough to extend his arms wide and then does a back flip off and in to the center of the ring. The crowd cheers loudly and he moves to his corner to wait for the bell.
ARE YOU READY?
The lights in the arena go dim and a purple & white light start flashing on the stage.
Oooooh, I'm unbeatable! (instrumentals)
Josh Eagles steps out from behind the curtain his hand high in the air.

Oooooh, I'm unbeatable! Be Defined! Josh Eagles

Josh rolls under the bottom rope and goes right to the far left turn buckle throwing the Eagles symbol in the air.

You can try your best this might be fun, you go down to defeat before you begun
Oooooh I'm unbeatable Be Defined! Josh Eagles!
Oooooh I'm undefeatable
Every move, each attack you choose, You think you can win but you'll always lose!
Ooooooooooooh, Josh Eagles! I'm unbeatable!
Josh finishes his rotation of all the turnbuckles and starts stretching for his match.
The lights go out and the logo of S³ appears on the screen. As "Down and Out" by Tantric hits and the lights come back on Triple S is standing on the stage in his signature pose with his arms spread in the air. As he lowers his arms he then starts his walk to the ring with a duffle bag in hand.
Barry Sharpe: Looks like Josh Eagles has someone to watch his back in Shawn Stevens
Fred Overstreet: What's up with the duffle bag, Shawn Stevens carry his gear around with him now?
Barry Sharpe: Why don't you go ask Shawn.
Fred Overstreet: Maybe I will.
As the bell sounds Kenny runs at Josh, he sends him into the mat with a drop toe hold. Josh rises back up to his feet, as Kenny slowly gets back up. Josh grabs him around his head dropping him with a jawbreaker, which staggers Kenny. Josh jumps up nailing him with a standing dropkick, which sends Kenny down to the mat.

Josh rises up to his feet, he stands over Kenny, and flips over landing down onto Kenny with a leg drop landing down onto the back of Kenny’s neck.
Barry Sharpe: Josh Eagles looking as sharp, as I’ve seen him in sometime. Fred Overstreet: I have to agree, Josh is looking very impressive.
Josh pulls Kenny up to his feet, he grabs him, and nails Kenny with the Be Defined (Falling Foot to face). Josh covers him, Dean Walker counts.
Gene Anderson: The winner of this match Josh Eagles!!
Barry Sharpe: Josh Eagles gets the win!
Fred Overstreet: Josh Eagles looking very impressive.
Josh is celebrating with Shawn in the ring after a great victory over Kenny Flight when all of a sudden 'Testify' by Rage Against the Machine hits and all of Five Star comes out from behind the curtain, their clothes dripping wet, looking like they've been hosed down. Confetti still sticking to some of them. None of them look happy and Valour has a mic as they stand looking at the ring and BTE just laughs it up.
Valour: You think this is funny? You think that we think this is funny?
Eagles and Stevens continue to laugh as they wait for someone to give them a mic. Finally Eagles gets handed a mic.
Eagles: I have NO idea what it is you are talking about? Shawn, what are we supposed to think is funny?
Stevens: I have no idea. I just see five guys who looked like they hopped a shower together and forgot to towel off. But I think they are right this isn't a laughing matter.
Josh looks at Shawn and looks at them and looks a bit confused. Shawn whispers into Josh's ear and he clues in.
Eagles: Your absolutely right, that is a testament of bravery. Guys I apologize we shouldn't be laughing. The fact that you were all able to shower together, come out here together dripping wet in the grips of what must have been a heck of an evening to support your rights as gay men ... that is truly fantastic!
The crowd yells out a big "WHAT" and Five Star looks livid and Angelo above them all.
Valour: Are you kidding me right now? Earlier this week you insinuate that I like to touch children and now you are telling me that I am gay? ...
Angelo goes to continue but Shawn cuts him off.
Stevens: You know that touching children stuff is wrong and like we said there is no real proof ... I mean yet. But its okay to be gay Valour, this is 2012 we are an open culture now.
Eagles: Trust me we are pro's with dealing with man crushes. Kip has had one on us for so many years now and honestly we see the way you look at Kliff, its so cute.
Kliff snatches the mic from Angelo who is going absolutely livid with rage and the fans are loving it.
Ulysses: You listen here you washed up has beens. First you destroy our locker room, then you insult us, then you mock us? How about we come down there and show you a Five Star ass kicking!
Eagles: Hold up there sport, we have no idea what you are talking about.
Stevens: Exactly. We didn't TOUCH your locker room.
Eagles: We are praising your sexual freedom.
Stevens: And we would certainly never insult or mock such accomplished veterans like yourself.
Josh and Shawn try their hardest to look very serious and repress smiles. Angelo has the mic back.
Valour: Do you think we are idiots? You SPRAY PAINTED, BTE WAS HERE all over our posters!!!!
Stevens: Just BTE was here?
Eagles: Then I want to change my statement and insult them, cause you must be stupid. You see we are the BEST TEAM EVA ...
Eagles: If we had done it, somewhere another E would have been there. We can't abbreviate without including our full name! Very bad frame job.
Ulysses: We can see your shirts, we can see they don't have the second E!
Josh and Shawn both look at each others shirts and start pointing at random places.
Stevens: Its just really small you are just too far away.
Valour: TOO FAR AWAY?
Angelo slams down the mic and Five Star starts walking to the ring. Josh laughs and Shawn casually walks back to the duffle bag opening it up. Just as Five Star surrounds the ring and is about to enter Shawn tosses Josh a small BTE branded club and pulls one out himself. Five Star immediately stops and stares at the ring.
Stevens: You guys DO realize that me and Beagles over here, we've been doing this for a long, long time.
Eagles: You see, we like to call these back up. We don't fall for the whole number game deal. If you want to come into this ring and try, prepare to be a whole lot of hurt.
Stevens: The locker room, everything today that is just a friendly warning. You made the mistake of attacking Josh, over and over again. You made the mistake of making claims to be the best. You see take both Josh and myself, either one of us alone have been in more matches and won more titles than all of you combined.
Eagles: We also don't take it lightly when people try to make 'examples' out of us. You won't be the first people who thought you could come to the UWL and make examples of Josh Eagles and Shawn Stevens.
Stevens: You guys want to run your mouths, you guys want a fight. You can trust that the BTE is going to bring the fight to you. No sitting in the back, no waiting for you to attack. Every week we will be in your face and we won't back down.
Eagles: So unless you want to get in this ring and rumble UWL style for a bit, I suggest you escort yourselves out of our arena.
The crowd goes wild as Shawn and Josh pace the ring with their clubs and chants of "BEST TEAM EVA ... EVA" break out through the arena. Five Star starts slowly walking towards the back and just as they are about to leave Shawn gets on the mic.
Stevens: Just remember, you are now messing with the BEST TEAM EVA ...
The BTE music hits as Shawn and Josh stand on the turnbuckles and the scene fades out.

At this time we'd like to present a special treat for the first time ever on UWL Television you will get to see a preview of the latest One On One With Kip Anderson, interview series. The latest interview is with none other than UWL World Heavyweight Champion, Justin Brooks. If you enjoy this interview it goes on sale this weekend!
Kip Anderson: Hello everyone, I am Kip Anderson thank you for joining us for the this special installment of the UWL one on one interview series. The guest here with us is UWL World Heavyweight Champion Justin Brooks.
The camera slowly turns on Justin setting on a blue couch with a UWL banner covering the wall behind him.
Kip Anderson: Welcome, Justin. Thank you for taking this time to conduct an interview with us.
Justin Brooks: It's a honor to be here. To be honest I was wondering what was taking you so long to get in contact with me to do one of these. Secretly, I'm a closet fan of these things.
Kip Anderson: I guess we'll start off by asking how did you get your start in pro-wrestling?
Justin Brooks: Honestly, it was just a part time gig. At the time I was just a Firefighter with the City of Atlanta and it didn't pay very well. I had the build and the athletic background so I basically started from he ground up in Atlanta and then once I was discovered by Ernie Banks during a small show I was brought to Hudson Valley Wrestling in New York.
Kip Anderson: Who were some of your early influences?
Justin Brooks: Guys like Tony Atlas...Rocky Johnson...Ron Simmons. Those guys were like Gods to me, without getting too political...there weren't a lot of black wrestlers that I could look up too. I couldn't reality to CoCo B. Ware and Junkyard Dog...to me, they were jokes and gimmicky. But the others, they were real...they weren't a act, Tony, Ron, and Rocky that made a young black kid reuse that we could make it in the business.
Kip Anderson: Were you a wrestling fan growing up?
Justin Brooks: I was...wasn't as big as many people would think, but an chance I got to sit down and watch...I did, regardless of the ridicule.
Kip Anderson: Tell us about your athletic background.
Justin Brooks: I was a actually a mediocre high-school athlete and I got by one pure athleticism alone. And it was a real ego check when college recruitment came around and I was passed over. It showed that sometimes being the best athlete isn't everything. I didn't have the best work ethic or discipline and I had to go to small Division 2 school in West Georgia on scholarship. It was there were I understood the value of hard work...discipline...and understanding the game of life all together.
Kip Anderson: How did you get started with UWL?
Justin Brooks: Actually once my stint with the HRW was over I took some time out and basically got back into the mood of being a firefighter again. But the drive to be in the ring was there again. I wasn't recruited, I wasn't asked to come to the UWL...actually I stumbled across the UWL as I was trying to find out where I wanted to rekindle my career. Needless to say I'm far from a rookie when I came to the UWL over a year ago.
Kip Anderson: Describe your first few months with UWL.
Justin Brooks: It was nuts...I was unknown and coming from a place where I was he Marquee Man...it was a welcomed shock but I embraced it all the same. It was a fresh start after years away from the spotlight and a change to earn my keep instead of living off o old accomplishments.
Kip Anderson: Tell us about being apart of Mainstream.
Justin Brooks: I always had a thing for Mainstream. Maybe it was their swagger...maybe it was their attitude or their confidence but I was attracted to it and personally I was dithered when they wanted me to come on board with them. At the time it was a highlight for me personally.
Kip Anderson: Looking back was joining Mainstream good for your career.
Justin Brooks: In a ass-backwards way it was...I had some serious lows with Mainstream and I needed it to remind me that I had a lot more growing to do. I had let my arrival in the UWL ride out too long and I had started to lose sight of who I was. In the end, I suffered a lot of defeats that really rocked my career. But it was being with Mainstream that I realized that I needed to step back and realize that I'm not going in the direction I wanted to go.
Kip Anderson: Tell us about your feud with Evan Caravelle.
Justin Brooks: Crazy, man...crazy. Me and Evan got some bad blood between us. It's not a mystery...he doesn't like me and I don't care for him. I really pushed his buttons and he really took it personally...which I can't blame him for. He's a two time Heritage Champion and deserves the accolades that he's earned. But if we step into the run again...it'll be a different story. He's grown soft since Davies left and personally I hope he gets it in gear and start acting like a two time Heritage Champion.
Kip Anderson: Tell us about your experience in the Next Level Tournament.
Justin Brooks: Humbling. I expected to run thought that Tournament and just run shot gun through the roster like, up to that point, I've been doing. I was promptly reminded that I'm not as good as I thought I was and promptly knocked out on my ass by said Evan Caravelle. I wish I could go back and tell my old self that things aren't like they used to be.
Kip Anderson: You had some huge matches with Cory Tyler. Tell us your thoughts on Cory Tyler.
Justin Brooks: He owes me one. Pound for Pound the best challenge I've ever had and he doesn't get half the credit he deserves. I think he got a raw deal when he was fired and I hope wherever he is...that he's prospering.
Kip Anderson: How did you feel when Cory Tyler left UWL?
Justin Brooks: A little deflated. I wanted to face him again to show who was best. I'll be lying if I said I didn't miss him and want him to come back to the UWL...he owes me my rubber match and at some point I plan on collecting on that match.
Kip Anderson: Tell us about your reign as TV Champion.
Justin Brooks: Awe-Inspiring. When I beat Raven and Slade, I made it a point to become the greatest Television Champion ever. In that span I've become the longest reigning Television Champion and set the bar for years to come. Granted I lost it via a four on one attack, guys like Angelo Valour knows where the bar has been set and I dare them to surpass it and then some, the Television Title deserves it.
Kip Anderson: You finally won the UWL World Heavyweight Title. How did it feel?
Justin Brooks: Like I was reborn anew. It was amazing to know that I was the King of the Mountain and that all those times that I've been working to become the World Champion had finally paid off and I was the new UWL World Heavyweight Champion. It's something I remember for as long as I live and breathe.
Kip Anderson: Were you fine with winning the UWL World Heavyweight Title in the Coronation Cup?
Justin Brooks: Oh God yes. Xplode left the UWL and create a wide spread panic to become to new champion. Whether it meant beating Cory Tyler, Xplode, or winning the Coronation Cup...I was going to make sure that I was that guy to do it all.
Kip Anderson: Who is your current favorite star in UWL?
Justin Brooks: Jimmy Riley and Jonathan Collins. These are new to the UWL,true, but these guys are going to surprise a lot of people.
Kip Anderson: What are your thoughts on Leon Tyrell?
Justin Brooks: Unproven...unworthy....and frankly unqualified to even be considered the number one contender. There a lot of guys who deserve that chance over Tyrell.
Kip Anderson: What are your impressions of Five Star?
Justin Brooks: Five Star is nothing more but collective group of overhyped...undertalented...underachieving...and frankly overexposed bunch of punks. Soon enough I'm going to personally meet every single one of them in the rig and crush them underneath my boot.
Kip Anderson: Before we let you go lets play word association..Mainstream

UWL Television Championship Angelo Valour (c) vs. Autumn Raven vs. Blade Razor
Gene Anderson: This match is set for one fall with a fifteen minute time limit!! And it is for the Universal Wrestling League Television Championship!!
The music blasts to life and everyone in the audience erupts. BladeRazor parts the black curtain before him and walks through it, standing before a bunch of excited fans. He shows a smile and slowly begins to make his way down to the ring, slapping hands with fans and screaming loudly in an entertaining fashion. His torn, sleeveless t-shirt reveals his thick arms and bulky core, while his black sweat pants form loosely around his legs.
Gene Anderson: From Morgantown, West Virginia! Weighing two hundred and eighty five pounds!! Blade Razor!!
As he walks to the ring, he rolls underneath the bottom rope and rises to his feet quickly, and then makes a quick lap around the ring, slapping the turnbuckles as he passes. He finally takes a corner and waits for his opponents.
The opening guitar strums of "Crash" by 12 Stones echoes through the arena speakers as a white fog billows out from the entrance.
"As I lie here tossing in my bed, lost in my fears remembering what you said and I try to hide the truth within. The mask of myself shows its face again.."
From behind the curtains steps Autumn Raven, as she comes to a stop after walking out, lightly bouncing on the balls of her feet, smiling and motioning to the crowd around her to get louder.
Gene Anderson: From Los Angeles, California, weighing one hundred and twenty four pounds!! Autumn Raven!!!
She runs to each side of the ramp, pointing at the crowd before coming back to the middle and raising her fists into the air above her head before making her way down the ramp to the ring.
The lights suddenly go dark. "Papercut" by Linkin Park begins to blare as the lighting system around the curtain turns red. The chorus begins to play.
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back It's like a whirlwind inside of my head It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin
At this point, the fog machines have filled the area in front of the curtain with a dense cloud. The red lighting makes the cloud look deep red. Angelo Valour pops threw cockily with the UWL Television Championship draped over his left shoulder.
Gene Anderson: From Boston, Massachusetts! Weighing two hundred and forty pounds! Representing Five Star!! He is your Universal Wrestling League Television Champion!! Angelo Valour
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back It's like a whirlwind inside of my head It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin
Angelo strides to the ring with a cocky swagger. He ignores the crowds boos as he walks up the ring steps and slides between the ropes. He lifts his title over his head as the music begins to fade out.
Barry Sharpe: And we're ready for tonight's semi main event, as the Television title is on the line for Blade Razor, Autumn Raven, and Angelo Valour.
The bell rings, and the three stand in the ring, staring at each other tentatively. Blade and Raven turns towards Valour, stepping towards him briskly. Valour throws a hard right hand at Raven, who ducks under it, catching him with a spinning heel kick to the back of the head. Valour stumbles into Blade, who takes Valour overhead with a Northern Lights Suplex. Valour quickly rolls out of the ring, clutching at his head. Blade turns to Raven, throwing a couple hard rights, before taking her down with a snapmare. He quickly drops an elbow across the throat, leaning across Raven and making the pin.
Barry Sharpe: Blade Razor going for the early pinfall.
Fred Overstreet: Tryin to get the surprise victory.
Blade and Raven are back to their feet, and Raven throws a hard chop across the chest of Blade, who cuts her off with a knee to the midsection. He throws her with a vicious overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Raven staggers back to her feet, and Blade fires in with a hard punch to the jaw. Blade's quickly on the offensive, lifting Raven up onto his shoulders. She slips off and behind Blade, taking him down with a hard Reverse DDT. Raven's back to her feet quickly, and waits for Blade to rise. She rushes in, catching him with a headscissors takedown. Raven climbs the turnbuckle quickly, staring down at Blade a moment, before leaping off with the Death Drop (Double Foot Stomp). Raven makes the quick cover.
Valour breaks up the pin!
Fred Overstreet: Don't forget about the champ!
Valour and Raven are on their feet, as Valour shoots in with a single leg takedown. He twists Raven into a legbar, wrenching it in hard. Raven tries scrambling for the ropes, but Valour holds the leg tight. Raven uses her free leg to kick away at Valour's head. Raven gets to her feet quickly, as does Valour. She fires in with a hard forearm, sending Valour back a step. She fires in with a hard clothesline, but Valour ducks under it, catching Raven with a hard German Suplex, planting her to the mat. Valour quickly pulls Raven back to her feet, lifting her into the air, and dropping her across his knee with a double arm backbreaker. Valour gets back to his feet, and is caught from behind by a hard forearm from Blade Razor. Blade spins Valour around, doubling him over with a toe kick before planting him to the mat with a DDT.
Fred Overstreet: Blade Razor on the attack.
Barry Sharpe: A beautiful DDT leaves the champion on the mat.
Blade waits for Valour to rise, charging in and catching Valour with a hard running knee, sending Valour slumping into the turnbuckle. Blade fires off a couple hard chops, then lifts Valour onto the top rope. He pulls Valour onto his shoulders, looking to drop him with a Death Valley Driver. Valour elbows Blade in the head a couple times, slipping off his shoulders and onto his feet. Valour bounces off the ropes, catching Blade with The Takeover (Clothesline From Hell). Both men lay on the mat, catching their breath. Valour gets to his feet first, waiting for Blade to rise. He grabs Blade in a Full Nelson, going for a slam, but Blade blocks it. He breaks free with a couple hard back elbows, then spins around, and goes to lift Valour with a back suplex. Valour blocks it, and uses a couple hard forearms to break Blade hold on him. Autumn Raven comes flying off the top rope, catching both men with a flying crossbody! Everyone lays strewn on the canvas.
Fred Oversteet: Autumn Raven just cleared the house.
Raven gets back to her feet first, and she waits for either man to rise. Valour's first to his feet, and Raven charges in, catching him with a hard dropkick, which sends Valour flying under the ropes to the floor. She turns to the rising Blade, and fires in with a forearm. Blade blocks it, nailing Raven with a hard forearm of his own. Raven gets sent reeling, and Blade follows, doubling her over and setting her up for a powerbomb. Raven counters it, sending Blade across the mat with a hurricanrana. She measures him up, waiting for him to rise, springing off the second rope and catching Blade with the Doppelganger (Springboard Bulldog). Raven points out to the crowd, quickly climbing the ropes. She leaps off with the Raven's Wing (Elbow Drop), catching Blade across the chest. She hooks the leg for the cover.
Valour breaks up the pinfall!
Valour pulls Raven to her feet roughly, doubling her over with a toe kick, before throwing her through the ropes to the floor. He turns to Blade, pulling him to his feet slowly. Blade tries to fight with a couple punches to the midsection, but Valour cuts him off with a rough knee to the stomach. Valour sets Blade up, spiking him to the mat with the Angel's Descent (Jumping Package Piledriver). Valour makes the cover.
Barry Sharpe: And Angelo Valour retains the Television title.
Valour gets to his feet, moving to the ropes and grabbing the title from ringside. He holds it high into the air, before placing it over his shoulder and stepping through the ropes to the floor.
The conclusion of Angelo's first defense, the victory celebration is cut short by the sounds of "Warning Signs" by The Anix. There, standing at the entrance way is Jonathan Collins. Still in his gear from earlier in the night, but wearing a regular hoodie instead of his entrance gear, he gives the Television champion a slow clap before producing a microphone from the pocket of the hoodie before starting to speak.
Jonathan Collins: Bravo, champion! Bravo, magnificent! You should be rather proud of yourself, sir. After all, you went from jumping the champion in an impromptu match to defending it. I suppose this defense is validation for everything you did last week, and kudos to you, sir. You're an opportunist, and I certainly like opportunists. You know why I like them? Because they're honest. They don't mince words about what they want, they simply reach out and take what they will.
At this point, Collins walks the steps up into the ring and climbs through the ropes before looking at Angelo again and giving him a tiny hint of a smirk.
Jonathan Collins: I like opportunists, because I am one. Now see, I noticed you put up a little poll on the official UWL site recently. You asked people to choose your next opponent to defend the Television Title against, and kudos to you. It shows initiative, it shows that you're not afraid to raise the stakes. It's a fool's decision, but kudos to you nonetheless. *he stops and the smirk slowly fades from his face as a look of seriousness comes over him* Angelo, I want you to listen up and listen good. No matter the outcome of that poll, I'll be here, waiting. I don't care if I win or lose, because it's all fluid to me, sir. If I win, then I validate that I am every bit of an athlete that I claim to be, and that nothing has changed in the eight years I stepped away from this sport. If I lose? Well, I'll be back next week. And the week after that. And the week after that. You're going to find that I am very persistent, Angelo. No matter what happens, I will give you no choice but to defend that title against me. And, sir, there is nothing you can do about it.
Collins gives him a bit of a grin before backing up and stepping out of the ring, extending his hands to Angelo in an offer to come at him if he thinks he can. Angelo busts out a breath laugh and shakes his head. He slings his championship over his left shoulder and grabs a mic. Collins waits on the outside taunting Angelo.
Angelo Valour: Do you think I'm going to fall for your taunts Mr. Collins? You come out here as if you already have a shot at this gold (slaps his title) and yet you couldn't even make the cut once the last poll ended. If I'm not mistaken you don't have a shot at this.
Angelo leans against the ropes with a grin. The crowd boos loudly as Angelo's bodyguard, Dominic Danielson, walks out threw the entrance. Collins is unaware of the new pressence and Angelo continues to speak.
Angelo Valour: I like your spunk though, kid. I have a little gift for you. Courtesy of the greatest Television Champ in UWL today.
Collins suddenly becomes aware but just too late as Dominic jumps him from behind with a huge clothesline. The two men battle it out with punches until Dom swings a wild kick and nails Collins in the groin. Collins drops to his knees and Dom climbs over him and puts him in a crouched crossface chickenwing. Not tight, just enough to hold him still.
Angelo Valour: Here is a lesson Jonathon. You are talking to The UWL Television Champion as well as the man who pulls the strings within the greatest threat in UWL today, Five Star. If you think you have the stones to step against Five Star than I am telling you you're in for a load of trouble.
Angelo stops to laugh as the crowd continues to boo
Angelo Valour: As for a shot at the title... I got an invoice today that at Grand Voyage, the Television Champion will compete in a triple threat Leave it to the fans match. That means thats the three men will compete in a match chosen by the polls. You see there is the factor that there needs to be competitors. Seeing as how I'm currently the champ I'm going to go ahead and say you're as good as booked in that match. And I have the perfect third wheel...
Angelo is suddenly cut off as '' Begins to blair over the sound system and Jacob Davies emerges from the back to a loud pop. Angelo freaks after being interrupted by another person. Angelo drops the mic and begins yelling profanities at Jacob. Dom struggles to keep Collins at bay as Jacob motions the belt on his waist while Angelo pats his title, shaking his head no.
