“How are we going to stop Sigil if you can’t leave this vault?” Sorrow groans. “How long do you have to stay down here?”
“Look kid, I have all the right wheels greased, alright?” Butcher retorts. “It’ll take a couple of weeks but we’ll get around this little set back, okay? We need to figure out who did this because if there’s another player in town, we won’t be able to focus on Sigil.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?” Voynich interrupts with annoyance. “I’m not getting side-tracked by your bullshit, Butch.”
All three men look at each other.
“You’re both bright kids, so I’ll be straight with you; someone inside The Slaughterhouse has done this. There’s a bigger play here that you’re not seeing. Someone wants me out of the picture.”
“That could be anyone,” Darby growls dismissively.
The Butcher stands up – he’s had enough.
“If I lose Old School Wrestling, we lose Sigil; it’s that fucking simple. Everything goes through OSW. The Guild and The Skull Order made that God damn clear.”
“Alright, so we find who’s responsible and stop them then?” The Immortal finally agrees.
“I have a funny feeling that they’ll find us,” Voynich chimes in.
When Banzan enters, she leaps up from her seat – but he’s waving a white flag in the way of two raised hands.
“I didn’t come to fight,” he assures her. “I came because I saw what Bishop and Pyre did to you out there a few nights ago.”
She folds her arms.
“They formed an alliance,” she replies.
“They did. We have a common purpose, both you and I. We’re being tormented by these two and if they’ve come together, we’ll be overrun unless we too form an alliance.”
Alice thinks about that for a moment, given their history.
“I know that we’ve not always seen eye to eye but we’re going to need to put that to one side, don’t you think?” He suggests. “I know you could use my help just like I could use yours.”
Finally, Alice speaks. She turns to walk away and takes a seat on the bench, patting it to invite him to sit also.
“My world is fractured,” she admits. “I’m losing control. I’m not seeing just our world but wonderland too.”
“I can help with that,” he offers. “There are techniques I could teach you to harness this world and starve the other of your attention.”
Alice looks at him, her eyes big and wide.
Will we see a clean sweep of new Champions by tomorrow night?
Let’s find out!
The lights begin to flash like a paparazzi’s camera as Deep Purple’s “Stormbringer” hits the Slaughterhouse. Smoke fills the entrance tube as the lyrics kick in.
Comin’ out of nowhere
Drivin’ like rain
There he is. Luke Storm walks through the clouds like a lightning bolt to stand at the head of the ramp. He removes his sunglasses as he takes in the crowd, his eyes full of rage.
With a nod and smile, the Real Deal marches down to the ring, ready for war. He slides in, going to the opposite turnbuckle to raise his fists in the air in defiance.
Ride the rainbow
Crack the sky
Time to die
It’s time for war as he drops down to face his opponentS.
As the beginning of Hall of Justice begins to play, fans are looking all over for any sign of the Caped Crusader.
A few fans look up and see a figure make his way along the catwalks high above the Slaughterhouse.
Suddenly that figure jumps over the rail, quickly blasting a grappling hook into the roof. As the music swells, so does the batwings-like cape.
Redwing is unveiled as he reaches the centre of the ring and looks around the ring as he readies himself for the match.
“Welcome to The Show That Never Ends!”
The crowd goes hysterical as the disembodied voice of an unknown male rings out through the arena. The sounds of David Shire’s “Manhattan Skyline” blare through the speakers. The minute the guitar hits, Monty steps onto the entrance ram with a million dollar smile seemingly plastered onto his face.
The host saunters his way to the ring, waving to the crowd all the while. Straight then slides underneath the bottom rope, standing in the middle of the ring and waiting for the bell to ring.
When the bell sounds, Luke Storm makes a b-line across the ring towards The Sandman and the pair of them clash violently. Luke tackles him to the canvas and starts pummelling away like a man possessed.
Sandman manages to push him off and roll outside the ring, stumbling. Storm follows underneath the bottom rope and charges him into the ring post. He goes underneath the ring and grabs a steel chair, slamming it angrily against the floor.
The Sandman slowly gets back to his feet, turning around…
STEEL CHAIR TO THE FUCKING SKULL!
HOLY SHIT, LUKE STORM BREAKS THE CHAIR ON SANDMAN’S FUCKING SKULL!
The Dream Demon is still standing though and that just pisses Luke off who turns him around and NAILS HIM!
SANDMAN BOUNCES OFF AND ONTO THE FLOOR! LUKE MOUNTS HIM ONCE AGAIN!
Back inside the ring and the much-changed line up see’s Banzan and Pyre slugging it out. After his agreement to align with Alice, he’s making a statement by bouncing her head violently off the corner turnbuckle.
Berkshire Ellison Green has Sorrow in the corner, choking him.
Monty Straight meanwhile brawls with D’von Chambers and Redwing storms at them, over for both men to move..
REDWING FLIES OVER THE TOP ROPE!!
WHAT THE FUCK!?
HE HANGS ON!
Chambers grabs straight and TOSSES HIM head first into the mid-section of Redwing through the middle rope, dropping him to his knees.
He walks over and reaches down, pulling Redwing back to his feet.
HE SCRAMBLES BUT HOLDS ON!
HE HANGS CHAMBERS UP ON THE TOP ROPE!
MONTY QUICKLY GRABS HIM!
SIDE RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP ROLLED INTO THE CROSSFACE!!
TERMS AND CONDITIONS!
REDWING GETS BACK INSIDE THE RING!
But here comes Pyre! Pyre has dispatched on Banzan and RUNS RIGHT INTO THE WATCHFUL PROTECTOR!
He rolls away and watches as she stumbles, stopping to a knee.
AS HE JUMPED INTO THE AIR, BANZAN LEAPT WITH MAGGA AND CLEANED HIS FUCKING CLOCK!
The Mountain gets back to his feet but here’s SORROW!
COFFIN DROP TO BANZAN!
Darby is back up, scooping up BEG as he runs at him!
CRADLE TO THE GRAVE!
GREEN STUMBLES BACKWARDS…
Straight is there TO RUN GREEN OVER THE TOP ROPE!
BERKSHIRE ELISON GREEN HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!
HE HANGS ON!
PYRE STORMS ACROSS THE RING AT HIM!
BEG DUCKS, SENDING HER OVERHEAD!
SHE LANDS ON THE SHOULDERS OF THE SANDMAN!
WHAT THE FUCK! SHE SQUIRMS…
PYRE ALMOST ESCAPED BUT NO, SHE’S ELIMINATED!
The Double Feature Champion has been eliminated and that leaves just THE SANDMAN as a Champion in this match.
BEG cockily enters the ring with a swagger, turning around to see Redwing.
KICK TO THE GUT!
CURBSTOMP TO BEG! CURBSTOMP TO BEG!
Back on the outside and it’s The Sandman who’s now in control. He has a cord wrapped around Luke Storm’s throat and is strangling him. Pyre may have interrupted but he’s gone straight back to it.
D’von Chambers is hurting but lamps Banzan with a Clothesline.
He turns around to see Darby Sorrow leaping at him but catches him in mid-air, spinning into an EPIC Powerslam.
When Chambers gets back up, it’s BANZAN who’s back to his feet and who RUNS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!
CHAMBERS IS OUT!
HE LANDED ON THE APRON!
BANZAN STEPS OUT ONTO THE APRON WITH HIM.
WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?
HE PULLS CHAMBERS UP AND STARTS SLUGGING IT OUT WITH HIM! JESUS CHRIST!
Monty Straight is by now back up and pulls Redwings legs out from underneath him.
SHARPSHOOTER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!
BUT HERE COMES BEG!
RUNNING BULLDOG TO STRAIGHT!
The Money Maker is getting in his kicks, stomping away at him almost immediately after. He angrily walks away and dusts off his hands, straightening out his suit.
Banzan and Chambers continue to slug it out, giving Green an idea.
BEG hits the ropes.
HE LITERALLY BOUNCES OFF THE PAIR OF THEM AND ROLLS BACKWARDS WITH THE FORCE!
They turn to look at him, their eyes wide.
BANZAN steps slowly back inside the ring.
D’VON CHAMBERS steps slowly back inside the ring.
Green tries to scoot away on his arse but the pair lunge for him. They pull him back to his feet and begin a piggy in the middle.
RIGHT HAND SENDS HIM ONE WAY.
A LEFT SENDS HIM BACK THE OTHER.
SHOT AFTER SHOT, BERKSHIRE’S GETTING A BEATING!
IT’S LONG OVERDUE, NO?
CHAMBERS FINALLY NAILS HIM WITH A BODY SLAM AND HERES BANZAN FOLLOWING THAT UP WITH A LEGDROP!
Banzan and Chambers pick BEG back up together and TOSS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Berkshire Ellison Green has been eliminated!
We’re down to seven and one away from finding out who’ll be in the ring on the final night!
Banzan turns around to see that Monty Straight is running at him. He spears him into the corner and begins delivering shoulder barges.
Darby Sorrow meanwhile does the same to D’von Chambers.
Redwing is back in the action now and pulls Straight away from Banzan…
BRAINBUSTER TO THE KNEE!
Banzan stumbles out and MAGGGGGGGGGGGGAAAA!!
MAGGA TO REDWING!!
The Mountain turns to see Monty coming at him.
RIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE!
MONTY STRAIGHT IS….
T-T-T-TEEEEETERING ON THE RING APRON!
Banzan takes a run up, looking for another MAGGA…
CHAMBERS WITH A POUNCE!
HE SENDS BANZAN ACROSS THE RING!
Looking for an elimination for himself, he runs across the ring towards Straight and RIGHT INTO A KNEE!
MONTY SUNSET FLIPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND OVER CHAMBERS…
HE LIFTS HIM UP….
BUT HERE COMES SORROW…
THEY BOTH LIFT CHAMBERS UP…
AND DUMP HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!
D’VON CHAMBERS HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!
The bell sounds and the carnage inside the ring stops, though referee’s have to rush down the ramp to separate Luke Storm and Sandman who’re still brawling on the outside.
The Sandman remains.
Darby Sorrow remains.
Monty Straight remains.
Luke Storm remains.
And Banzan remains.
We’re guaranteed FIVE new Champions at minimum tomorrow night on the final night of Wrestle Heroes!
Who’s to come?
Who’s walking away with the gold?
JOIN US ON NIGHT SEVEN!
