“NO GOOD DEED”
Static covers the screen as a Play ► symbol appears in the bottom right-hand corner.
The Rewind Champion stands looking in a mirror, his face a reflection of sadness. He feels bad. Last week he tried to do the right thing and it cost Zero the match – now, next week, the weight of the world is on his shoulders, and he’s worried that he may of bit off more than he can chew.
However, that sadness soon turns to fear when Zero storms through the door and grabs him by the throat, slamming him hard backwards into the mirror – cracking it with the ferocity in which TGK’s head bounces off it.
[ Zero ] “Are you fuckin’ kidding me, you stupid mother fucker?”
He’s spitting with rage.
[ Zero ] “Not only did you stick your nose in my fuckin’ business but you cost me the match against Pyre.”
The Generation Kid suddenly pushes back, sending Zero stumbling backwards across the room in shock. TGK straightens himself out, pointing angrily at The World Champion.
[ The Generation Kid ] “I’ve had enough of people like you pushing me around!”
[ Zero ] “Like me?”
Zero says with a raised eyebrow. The Kid stutters and stammers.
[ The Generation Kid ] “You know what I mean. Don’t twist this around! I made a mistake last week and you paid for it, but you should still be thanking me. Instead of reminding you how I’m going to break the curse, overcome the odds and become OSW Champion, I’ve decided not to capitalise on this distraction but instead rid you of it!”
The World Champion thinks about it for a minute and then chuckles softly to himself.
[ Zero ] “That’s your mistake, kid.”
He steps forward.
[ Zero ] “And let me tell you another dawg; if you lose next week to Simon and he’s added to our match at Ring of Dreams, I’ll fuckin’ kill you.”
[ Zero ] “Don’t fuck around and find out, bitch.”
The World Champion storms out of the locker room, leaving The Generation Kid to look at himself in the cracked mirror. He tries his best for a fake smile, but stops, knowing he just can’t bring himself to do it.
[ The Generation Kid ] “You’ve got this…. you’ve got this.”
“LOOKING FOR THE TRUTH”
New York City Police Department.
This valued police department has been through some nightmarish circumstances since Old School Wrestling arrived in New York. Today, we witness Sir Bellator walking down the large steps outside its building.
It’s there that he bumps into Sigil, who’d been waiting.
[ Sigil ] “You must let this go, Sanctus. We don’t have time for your investigation.”
[ Sir Bellator ] “I don’t believe you. I need to know what that phone call was about; who was called and why? You’re lying to me, and I know you are.”
[ Sigil ] “Is that what the police told you?”
Sanctus folds his arms.
[ Sir Bellator ] “They can’t share evidence with me.”
[ Sigil ] “There was no phone call; Corvus is trying to get inside your head and you’re letting him. He’s one of the suspects here, Sanctus; why don’t you understand that? You’re listening to a suspect who has every reason to split us apart.”
[ Sir Bellator ] “We’ll see about that. Next week, I’ve asked Corvus to meet both of us in the ring – just one week before your fight against him at Ring of Dreams.”
That shocks Sigil, who visibly recoils.
[ Sigil ] “You’re making a mistake.”
[ Sir Bellator ] “If I don’t believe him, I’ll be in your corner for that match. If I do, then you’re on your own.”
Bellator walks past Sigil, shoulder checking him as he does and exits the scene. The Collector thinks about it for a moment, realizing that the jig is almost up.
SIGIL, DEATHNOTE & CORVUS VS. CHRONOA, IMPALER & SEESAW
Both of these trios teams must coexist in order to taste victory tonight!
Corvus ties up with the taller Chronoa who transitions into a side headlock on Corvus. Corvus pushes Chronoa into the corner and the ref forces her to break. Another tie up and Chronoa whips Corvus into the ropes and connects with a superkick on his rebound— INTO THE SHADOWS!
Corvus rolls to the outside and a portal opens up behind Chronoa— PLANESWALKER!! That dropkick floors the Amazon into her corner and Impaler tags in. Impaler rushes— ADAM SMASHER— SIGIL COSMIC LEAPS TO AVOID THE LARIAT! And we know what comes next— FINITE!! IMPALER ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AFTER THAT ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!
Deathnote slaps Sigil on the shoulder and comes face to face with SeeSaw now. CHOP TO SEESAW! CHOP TO DEATHNOTE!! They trade chops back and forth until they’re both hunched over in pain— BUT THEY CATCH A SECOND WIND AND ARE LAUGHING IN EACH OTHER’S FACES AS THE CROWD CHANTS “YOU SICK FUCKS!”
SeeSaw lifts Deathnote into a torture rack and spins around and around and around… but Deathnote slips out and SeeSaw spins right into a flash kick from Corvus— CORVUS KICK!! SeeSaw cackles as he wobbles backwards onto Deathnote’s shoulders— DYING WISH!! Deathnote covers after the Burning Hammer— ONE… BLACK HAND’S BLADE TO CHRONOA! TWO… PLANESTOMPER TO IMPALER!! THREE!!!
Deathnote gets the victory with a little assistance from his teammates tonight!
WINNERS: SIGIL, DEATHNOTE & CORVUS
Backstage, we find the Rainbow Party standing in their locker room. They’re dressed for war, ready to fight the potent combination of Kaine Knightlord, Banzan, and Lucy Seraphina in just a few short minutes. Vigour and Starboy are chatting while TGK sits, a contemplative look on his face.
[ Starboy ] “Starboy won’t take this laying down.”
[ Vigour ] “First time you’ve ever said that, huh? Listen, Vayikra showed us last week that they’re out for blood. We burned down Heritage Village, and they’re through playing around. They’re coming for our necks.”
TGK stands up.
[ The Generation Kid ] “Then let’s go for theirs.”
The other two look at him, as he joins the circle. Starboy reaches out a hand to the Kid’s chest.
[ Starboy ] “Hold up. Starboy knows you’re ready to take care of business, but you’ve got bigger fish to fry than Vayikra. You’ve got Simon next week and then the big World title shot against Zero. You’ve worked too hard for us to let you throw it away fighting Vayikra.”
[ Vigour ] “You’ve got a future beyond us. We’re the ones they’re…”
TGK cuts him off.
[ The Generation Kid ] “No. You guys are my friends… My brothers.”
He turns to Starboy.
[ The Generation Kid ] “Siblings?”
Starboy grins, reaching out their hand to pull TGK into a half embrace.
[ Starboy ] “Brother works.”
[ The Generation Kid ] “I’m not going to let you risk yourselves to protect me. Yeah, I’ve got Zero on the horizon. The biggest match of my career. But this fight against Vayikra is the biggest fight of my life. You all took me in, and made me feel welcome. I’ll be damned if I let Vayikra destroy that.”
He looks at the other two with a firm expression.
[ The Generation Kid ] “We stay together. No matter what. Either we take down Vayikra, or we die trying. Zero can find someone else to fight if we fail. If I can’t fight beside my brothers, then I don’t deserve that World title shot.”
Vigour joins the group hug.
[ Vigour ] “Only one thing left to do.”
[ Starboy ] “Let’s get biblical.”
“A FEW LETTERS”
Banzan is backstage meditating, preparing for his match when there is a knock on the door. He takes a deep breath and rises to his feet. He opens the door and there is a manilla envelope taped to it. He looks around for who may have left it. Seeing no one, he pulls the envelope off the door. He looks it over for any sign of who sent it, where he is once again left with more questions than answers.
He closes the door and opens it, seeing photos of Lucy Seraphina and Tenchu together at the Odawara castle seemingly having a heated discussion. As Banzan flips through, you can see an altercation taking place between the two.
[ Banzan ] “So, is this what happened? Lucy came to you for something that you couldn’t provide, and she lashed out?”
[ Kaine Knightlord ] “That’s what happened?”
Banzan barely reacts to the sudden appearance of the Vampire Detective.
[ Banzan ] “How do I know you didn’t set this up? Set Tenchu on a path to his ultimate demise?”
Kaine scoffs at the implication, rubbing his chin and walking towards the Mountain.
[ Kaine Knightlord ] “How do you know I didn’t send Lucy there to be killed by Tenchu? That I didn’t overestimate his skills in swordsmanship and intend for him to take care of that problematic Kindred?”
Banzan thinks for a moment before looking into the eyes of the Dark Detective.
[ Banzan ] “You’d manipulate your own kind, try to kill them in this Machiavellian way?”
This draws a chuckle from the vampire.
[ Kaine Knightlord ] “You would be amazed at what I’d be willing to do to take a problem out. But I didn’t, Lucy is a problem for another time. I didn’t set this up, but I damn sure intend on finding out who did.
Banzan looks the HellBat from head to toe, reading the dark aura around the creature of the night.
[ Banzan ] “You’ve made it clear I’m a lead suspect. Why?”
Kaine grabs a chair and sits down, closing his eyes for a moment in thought.
[ Kaine Knightlord ] “You had a long history with the Odawara. Or your Monastery has, at least. You tried to pull him in, to try and learn a wearkness, one lost to your people long ago. When it didn’t work out, you killed him with brute force. It’s why the castle was brought down, you dove deep into your training, unleashing a devastating attack to ensure Tenchu never rose again. A final revenge for what the Odawara did to the Tiger’s Nest all those centuries ago.”
Kaine stands to his feet as the Mountain blocks his path to the door.
[ Banzan ] “A fanciful tale, you almost sound like Aesop did once. But you’re wrong.”
Kaine laughs as he walks around the mountain and out the door. As Kaine leaves the hall, Lucy appears, as if she had been listening at a distance to the accusations made.
THE RAINBOW PARTY VS. KNIGHTLORD, BANZAN & SERAPHINA
One trio is thick as thieves, and the other is dysfunctional as hell: who will come out on top tonight?
Seraphina and TGK tie up collar and elbow and TGK transitions her arm into a hammerlock from behind! He wrenches it in but Seraphina counters into a hammerlock of her own! TGK counters out and catches her— EXCELLENT ADVENTURE?? NO!! Seraphina front facelocks TGK and lifts him into a cradle…
ASSASSIN’S NIGHT!!! Seraphina can’t capitalize on the cradle DDT as Vigour frog splashes ontop of her from the top rope— SPLASH OF COLOR BREAKS THE PIN!! In rushes Knightlord, ripcording Vigour and bludgeoning him a lariat— BLOODY STREAM!! Seraphina tags Banzan in and TGK rolls to the outside as Vigour and Knightlord topple through the ropes together…
Banzan steps through the ropes and adopts a defensive stance as Starboy now enters and lunges at him— GANGBANGARANG!! But Banzan stands tall, denying the slingblade as Starboy crashes and burns!! MAGGA!!! NO— STARBOY DUCKS THE KINSHASA!!! Starboy quickly gets to his feet as Banzan turns right around into Starboy jumping crotch-first into his face…
STARBOY IS GYRATING HIS THONG IN BANZAN’S FACE!! “STARBOY HAS REACHED THE SUMMIT!!” they declare before snapping back into a hurricanrana and hooking the legs into a pin— ONE! TWO!! BANZAN COUNTERS INTO HIS OWN PIN— ONE! TWO!! BUKKAKE!! White goo blinds Banzan and Starboy rolls him into a double-arm crossface— DEEPTHROAT!!! BANZAN TAPS!!!
Starboy has climbed the mountain tonight!
WINNERS: THE RAINBOW PARTY
Backstage, we see The Impaler gathering his belongings as he sets out to leave The Slaughterhouse, eager to leave after the trios match earlier in the night…but he is stopped in his tracks by a chuckle from offscreen. A chuckle that draws Legion’s attention to the source.
A smirk on her face as she examines Legion closely.
[ Chronoa ] “You heard them, didn’t you?”
A snarl quickly forms on The Impaler’s face, noticeable through what little of it isn’t covered by the mask.
[ The Impaler ] “Were you behind those conjurings, witch? Have you cursed me for refusing your advances?”
This only draws a stronger chuckle from the Keeper of Time.
[ Chronoa ] “I’m no witch, Legion. The only curse I bring is knowledge…the knowledge that his transgressions are finally catching up to the Dread Pirate Roberts of Professional Wrestling.”
Legion scoffs at this, continuing his packing…but the Harbinger of Fate presses on.
[ Chronoa ] “I want you to understand something. When this is all over, you will find yourself confronted by the mistakes of your past…and you will understand where you fit in. You will know—and accept—your place.”
Legion stares her down, unrelenting in standing his ground.
[ The Impaler ] “And if I refuse?”
Chronoa’s smirk widens to a full-on smile.
[ Chronoa ] “If you want these conjurings to go away, you won’t. I know now what’s coming to you, O great Impaler. You cannot fight fate…and you cannot stop the nightmare of Night City.”
With that, Chronoa walks off with the smile never leaving her face…and The Impaler clenches his fist, setting off a spark in the distance.
There’s a low thumping noise, which as it filters in becomes more obviously the bassline of some kind of music. The street is empty but in front of us there is a drab grey door. Suddenly, there’s a scream that pierces the night even louder than the music but it’s just one and then it’s snuffed out. The music continues.
Suddenly the door bursts open, and momentarily the music sounds fuller rather than just the bass. People spill out of the doorway, but not by their own volition. Deathnote is beating them out of the door, not even an hour since his match ended. There’s a sense of desperation in his actions.
[ Deathnote ] “I want answers. Where is he?”
There’s a lack of answer that makes Deathnote even angrier. He growls out the next question.
[ Deathnote ] “Where is Viper Roberts?”
[ ??? ] “N-none of us know.”
Deathnote turns to face man who spoke. He raises a hand, but rather than his own, it’s the unknown mans hand he raises, and then pulls down his sleeve. On his inner wrist is the snake tattoo sported by Viper’s crew.
[ Deathnote ] “I have spent the whole week searching up where Viper’s little den of snakes might have moved to after finding the old Pit empty, and here you all are, tattoos on each and every one of you, terrible music that might be doing more damage to your brain than Viper, and you can’t even give me a clue where he might be? Why should I trust you?”
[ ??? ] “We haven’t seen him for weeks.”
The poor man starts to say. He’s a little calmer now.
[ ??? ] “Whether you believe us or not is your choice. There is one man who has seen him more recently than anyone here though, maybe he can help you…?”
Deathnote smirks. The music stops somewhere in the background – party’s over.
VAYIKRA vs. BMF
Are the Bad Mother Fuckers in any condition to deal with these fucking zealots?
Vayikra get the jump on the Bad Mother Fuckers immediately! The zealots are attacking them like a pack of rabid dogs, pummeling them down and stomping them into the ground and the bell finally rings!
Zero puts up a fight against Bellator, but Pyre and Storm look like wounded animals, wincing in pain as Gable and Renault ground and pound them. Renault tosses Pyre to the outside and follows up with a flying elbow! Meanwhile, Gable is repeatedly German suplexing Storm to the point he’s bleeding from the mouth!
Sensing the need to carry his teammates, Zero ducks a lariat from Bellator. Both men bounce off opposite ropes towards one another— BIONIC CLOTHESLINE FROM ZERO!! Bellator rises and turns right into DOUBLE MIDDLE FINGERS… but Gable blindsides Zero with a spear— GOLD RUSH!! Renault slides in and chokes Zero with a knee to the throat as the crowd boos!
Bellator climbs to the top rope as Renault and Gable lift Zero up high into a crucifix. Bellator leaps— BUT ZERO SLIPS OUT!! Bellator crashes to the mat as Renault and Gable are struck with steep superkicks— SUPERKICK PARTY FROM STORM AND PYRE!! PUNK CITY KILLER BY ZERO TO BELLATOR!!! STUNNER!!! COVER— ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
Storm, Pyre, and Zero show why they are the dominant force of OSW, even on an off night like tonight!
WINNERS: BAD MOTHER FUCKERS
The match is over, and only Vayikra remain in the ring! They seem to circle each other, preparing a prayer as Sir Vant gets on the apron to join them with a mic!
[ Sir Vant ] “Now, we have taught you all much in these past weeks. Today, however, you shall-”
LOWBLOW! STARBOY HAS ARRIVED AND HE SENDS THREE MORE SHOTS TO VANT’S GROIN BEFORE RIPPING HIM OFF OF THE APRON AND CATCHING THE MIC!
Vigour and TGK arrive from the crowd to uproarious applause! The Rainbow Party is here and they’re circling the ring like sharks smelling blood in the water!
[ Starboy ] “Starboy and their friends are tired of the preaching. Starboy in particular wants to really Sodom your Gomorrah.”
They toss the mic to Vigour!
[ Vigour ] “But we think that there’s another story you guys could learn from, right? Kid learned a whole lot when he was preaching for you losers.”
He tosses the mic to TGK!
[ The Generation Kid ] “Ever heard of the Wall of Jericho? Well we’re marching and once our trumpets blow you’re gonna come falling down!”
[ Starboy ] “Blow you say?”
The crowd cheers and The Rainbow Party rushes the ring! Vayikra is ready and they trade blows with TGK and Vigour! But where’s Starboy?
THEY COME FLYING OUT OF NOWHERE! STARBOY HAS THE LOVESTICK IN HAND AND IT LANDS FLUSH WITH GABLE’S THROAT!
That terrifying spiked dildo sends Gable reeling!
RIGHT INTO THE EXCELLENT ADVENTURE! ROCK BOTTOM BY TGK!
Starboy punts Bellator in the balls!
AND VIGOUR LIFTS HIM UP! VIM AND VIGOUR!
Only Renault is left standing and The Rainbow Party has him surrounded! He turns in a circle looking for an exit!
KARATE KID 2! VIGOUR AND TGK NAIL A DOUBLE CRANE KICK! RENAULT LANDS IN STARBOY’S ARMS! THEY HAUL HIM UP AND PLACE HIS HEAD IN THEIR TIGHTS! STARBOY DRIVER 69! MASSIVE PILEDRIVER! KILLED IT WITH FIRE!
The Rainbow Party stand over the beaten down Vayikra, the walls of Vayikra torn down with pure aggression! They share a look of accomplishment before sliding out of the ring, leaving the crowd to drink in the image in front of them.
This isn’t just a fight.
This is war.
Shaky footage overlays, showing nothing more than the smiling face of Chip Montana.
[ Chip Montana ] “G’day mates! I’m Chip Montana, and I’m…”
A large form bumps Montana out of the way.
[ SeeSaw ] “…we’re playing with balls!”
Mr. Make Believe rushes ahead of Montana, who has his eyebrow raised. SeeSaw wasn’t lying, he’s got a couple of balls in his hands. Some type of grenade?
[ Chip Montana ] “Smoke bombs, we’re gonna smoke out the lil’ blighter.”
They’re standing around a large hole drilled into the ground of a corner of the Slaughterhouse. Montana is rubbing his hands together.
They’ve got Dave the Rabbit this time.
[ SeeSaw ] “Mister Montana? Is it wabbit season? I heard it’s not.”
[ Chip Montana ] “With this one, it’s always wabbit season.”
He gestures to the whole.
[ Chip Montana ] “Come on out, mate!”
SeeSaw throws one of them towards the hole, but just as he does Dave the Rabbit jumps right at them. SeeSaw drops the smoke bomb right at Chip Montana’s feet, causing the host to be blinded.
[ Chip Montana ] “Oi! Not me, SeeSaw! Get the rabbit!”
In a sea of smoke, SeeSaw leaps around, but seemingly accomplishes nothing. As it clears up, DTR is nowhere to be seen, and Montana is just shaking his head.
[ Chip Montana ] “We lost him!”
Mr. Make Believe saunters up, rubbing his eyes.
[ SeeSaw ] “I think I saw him head that way.”
He points up ahead.
To the exit to the Slaughterhouse.
[ Chip Montana ] “Crikey. Gonna need to cast a bigger net. We’ll get him yet.”
[ SeeSaw ] “He’ll be ours soon enough.”
Montana heads for the exit, while SeeSaw lingers for just a moment.
TRIPLE THREAT MATCH
TAG VS. WIZ VS. ETHER
Just when Jet Set Radio is back on the same page they get their friendship tested again. Who will be the best friend tonight?
Jet Set Radio stand individually, facing one another in a triangle in the ring.
They’ve been in this position before, having to square off against each other.
Tag came out on top last time, and Ether and Wiz knowingly side eye him as the bell rings.
Tag steps forward between Ether and Wiz, offering them a group hug before they are forced to do battle.
Wiz and Ether oblige, and the three best friends embrace as the camera zooms out!
YOU JUST GOT TO GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!
Wiz and Tag exchange their customary fist bump and handshake, then Tag turns to Ether, and thinking twice before ever slapping that booty again, he avoids a grave mistake and instead gives the hungry a girl a hearty pat on the shoulder.
Ether and Wiz offer each other a handshake, and when they clasp hands Ether leans back and shoves her roller skate into Wiz’s face as Tag leapfrogs Wiz—
NO COMPLY! FUCK YA FACE!
POP SHOVED IT!!
The fameasser/sole food combo caught Wiz off guard, and he goes down hard!
Ether and Tag exchange a wry smile, then Tag lifts Wiz up high into a stalling suplex before dropping him headfirst to the mat in a sharp, jerking MCTWIST as Ether drills him with an ETHER STRIKE—
Tag quickly covers—
RIDING THE SKY!!
THE DOUBLE FOOT STOMP BY ETHER BREAKS THE COUNT!!
Tag grasps his lower back in pain as he gets to his feet, but Ether has skated off the ropes and is speeding towards him—
ETHER STRIKE! SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE FACE!
Tag flops down next to Wiz and now Ether takes her turn stomping her roller skates on her buddies—
STOMP TO WIZ’S STOMACH!
STOMP TO TAG’S BACK!
ETHER IS LETTING ALL HER ANGER OUT ON HER FRIENDS!!
DAMMIT, NOT LIKE THIS!!
Ether suddenly stops. We hear an audible growl as she looks down and rubs her belly…
ETHER’S GETTING HUNGRY!!
She climbs to the top turnbuckle and waits for Tag and Wiz to get to their feet. They help each other stand up, holding their midsections in pain, and slowly turn to the corner as Ether takes flight—
DOUBLE METEORA FROM THE TOP ROPE!!
TAG AND WIZ CAUGHT HER!!!
Tag and Wiz each hold one of Ether’s legs as she sits caught on their shoulders. The boys exchange a glance, then lift her up high by her jean shorts…
AND POWERBOMB HER DOWN ONTO THEIR KNEES!!!
THAT’LL MAKE ETHER SPRAY BACK ALL THAT FOOD SHE’S BEEN STUFFING DOWN HER PIE HOLE!!!
Ether’s gasping for air and arching her back in pain like Tag and Wiz have never seen before, and the slowly step away from her, acting almost sorry for what they just did to her.
Tag and Wiz take a moment before tying up collar and elbow. Wiz twists Tag’s arm and wrenches it in! Tag reaches for the ropes and uses the top rope as leverage to front flip and counter into an arm drag!
Wiz is back up to his feet but is forced to hit the deck as Tag attempts a lariat! Tag hits the ropes and runs back at Wiz who jumps over Tag this time. Tag rebounds off the ropes again and runs right into Wiz’s flying knees—
THE COSMO PLANE!!
TAG GETS A SHOULDER UP!!
Wiz pulls Tag up to his feet by his stupid hair but Tag elbows Wiz in the gut! And then again to get Wiz off him!!
As Wiz is doubled over, Tag stuffs Wiz’s head between his legs and blows a kiss to signal the single leg lungblower powerbomb!
Tag lifts Wiz up…
AND WIZ SLIDES OUT BEHIND TAG—
FLOAT-OVER DDT BY WIZ—
THE BOOM BOOM!!
Tag’s head bounces off the mat and his body follows like a rag doll! Wiz drops down for the pin—
But he has a second thought.
Wiz somersaults to the corner and hops up to the top turnbuckle.
His back is turned to the ring— he’s gonna go for the backflip splash!
Wiz fist bumps his heart—
“FOR BOOTSY!” he shouts as he moonsaults…
ONTO NO ONE!!
Ether dragged Tag out of the way and Wiz crashed and burned hard! Ether picks Wiz up by his funky hair and pulls something out of her pocket…
IT’S HER DREADED LOLLIPOP!!
NOT LIKE THIS!!
SHE SHOVES IT INTO WIZ—
NO!! WIZ DUCKS THE LOLLIPOP KILL!!
HE JUST AVOIDED CERTAIN DEATH!!
Wiz exhales in relief and attempts a kick to Ether’s gut, which she catches, but is also forced to drop the lollipop as a result—
ENZIGURI BY WIZ!!
Ether is dazed but doesn’t go down. She staggers back—
FIVE STAR FACIAL!!
TAG DROPS HER WITH A BICYCLE KICK!!
KICK TO TAG’S GUT BY WIZ—
ODE TO THE SNAKE!!!
Tag and Ether are both down after that DDT by Wiz, and he drags Ether by her sexy hair, lining them up head to toe next to each other before climbing to the top rope.
Wiz is feeling it.
WIZ SHREDS THE AIR GUITAR!!
ONTO TAG’S CHEST…
AND ETHER’S KNEES!!!
Ether kips up and skates into the ropes as Wiz hovers over Tag, both clutching their chests in pain…
Ether leaps up above Wiz’s head—
AND CURBSTOMPS HIS HEAD INTO TAG’S—
Ether rolls Wiz off Tag and sprawls ontop of them both, shoving a roller skate into each of their chins for the cover—
THE HUNGRY GIRL SERVED UP HIBACHI TONIGHT!!
Ether caught a case of the munchies, taking home the big victory over her best buds tonight!
“WHEN YOU MESS WITH THE BULL..”
Jet Set Radio stand together.
They have embraced, shaken hands and been to war together. Now, as the dust clears, a momentary tense moment of silent stares are shared between the trio.
That is, until Wiz and Tag both simultaneously break out into grins. Smiles that soon turn into chuckles. By the time Ether joins in the trio have developed full blown belly laughs. They each instinctively move toward each other, when their manic reuniting is broken by an all too familiar sound.
‘I’m bad to the bone… b-b-b-b-bad…’
Hollywood Luke Storm and Pyre swagger their way toward the ring. Both are still limping, bruised and battered from last week’s beatdown and their action this evening, but they are hell-bent on payback and waste no time sliding into the ring. They come to meet Jet Set Radio, standing two-to-three, eye-to-eye.
[ Hollywood Luke Storm ] “You fucking cowards.”
Ether, Wiz and Tag though start scanning around the Slaughterhouse. They’re searching for something.
[ Wiz ] “Oh, where’s your buddy? Where’s your boytoy Pyre?”
[ Ether ] “Isn’t he supposed to have your back?”
Pyre remains silent, but balls her fist tightly.
[ Hollywood Luke Storm ] “Yes, you know Simon’s little plan is keeping Zero away from this fight. But we don’t need a third to take you down. At least we’ll look you in the eye while we punch you in the face.”
And with that, BMF do exactly that. PYRE CLOCKS ETHER RIGHT IN THE NOSE, WHICH SEEMINGLY EXPLODES IN BLOOD! LUKE STORM TAKES DOWN TAG WITH A HAYMAKER RIGHT ON THE POINT OF THE JAW!
WIZ RETALIATES BY GRABBING STORM AROUND THE SCRUFF OF THE NECK AND WRESTLING HIM OVER TO THE RING ROPES, BUT IS SOON BLINDSIDED BY PYRE WHO SHOULDER TACKLES HIM TO THE GROUND TOO!
Pyre stands over him, breathing heavily.
[ Pyre ] “You should have learnt by now. You mess with the bull…”
But the second half of her line never comes from her partner. Instead, Simon appears seemingly out of nowhere holding a steel chair.
CHAIR SHOT TO LUKE STORM ACROSS THE BACK OF THE HEAD! A SECOND TO PYRE AS SHE TURNS, CATCHING HER RIGHT ACROSS THE CROWN OF THE SKULL! BMF ARE DOWN!
[ Simon ] “You get the horns? Those aren’t horns dears… They’re just lumps on your head.”
Simon drops the chair, bending down and committing the cardinal sin. He takes Luke Storm’s sunglasses off his face and puts them on his own, walking away with them. Tending to JSR and helping them back to their feet, the foursome laugh once more as they stand in solidarity once more.
“COLLECT IN FULL”
In the shadows of the night, the rain pours into a dark and dingy alleyway, somewhere in the bustling city of New York. As passers by and traffic head about their evening, Goro Nakamura stands under an umbrella held by Gunnar Kai, walking towards an illuminated stairwell.
They enter the stairwell and meet with someone we don’t see. They’re wearing a large hooded jacket with black gloves.
[ Unknown ] “I wanted to thank you personally for your patience, Mr. Nakamura. I know you came to Old School Wrestling for a purpose and since Pandemonium, you’ve remained off site.”
[ Goro Nakamura ] “I did as you requested, out of respect for your gift to us.”
He looks stoic – angry, yet somehow appreciative.
[ Unknown ] “Everything is coming to a head, quicker than we thought in fact.”
[ Goro Nakamura ] “That is good to hear.”
[ Unknown ] “What that means is that sooner rather than later, vengeance will be yours. Please rest assured, you’ll have nothing but our co-operation in that endeavour.”
Goro looks at Gunnar and nods. The Henchman reaches inside his pocket and pulls out an envelope, handing it to the unknown person.
[ Goro Nakamura ] “This is a sign of our appreciation.”
The unknown person, wearing gloves, opens the envelope and pulls out a piece of paper. On it, a number is written.
[ Unknown ] “What’s this?”
[ Goro Nakamura ] “Should the need arise, this is the number of my aide, Rezin Deckard. If you call it, he will come, as will Hell on Earth.”
They fold back up the note and place it back in the envelope.
[ Unknown ] “Thank you, Mr. Nakamura.”
The person attempts to walk away, only Goro reaches out and grabs them by the arm.
[ Goro Nakamura ] “Zero must pay for what he stole from The Collective; I have not forgotten his debt. After Ring of Dreams, we’re coming for what he owes us.”
[ Unknown ] “And you’ll be able to collect in full, you have my word.”
