FTW Showdown 25
We come to you live tonight from Caesar Uyesaka Stadium in front of 950 people.
We start off the show with Freakshow and Jeremiah Crane in the ring. Freakshow has the mic and says, “What happened at Time Crisis was complete bullshit. Crane had Marty Scurll right where he wanted him, and all the sudden this hooded man came out just to ‘free’ Crane. Well Crane is already free under the watchful eye of The Scythe. I’ll give this hooded man one week to come out and explain himself!” This segment got a B.
Next up we have The Wolfpac in the back. Scott Hall has the mic, “Hey yo, Pentagon, Fenix, we beat you two just like everyone knew we would. You see I don’t care how bad you to think you are. The Wolfpac are the baddest guys in the room whereever we go. We don’t care if you think you’ve been blessed by some sort of mythical bird, or if you have some spooky powers Vampiro gave you. We deal in facts, and the fact is we are just better than you. You know where to find us if you want to get smacked down again.” Scott Hall throws a toothpick at the camera. This segment got an A-

We start out with Pentagon Dark is in the ring. “Last week The Wolfpac were out here running their mouth, talking about how they’re the baddest in the room. Well I seem to remember it a different way. See my brother and I had you two on the ropes. You are the baddest. That $10 worth of quarters you hit us with was the baddest. We know that we can beat you both. You give us another shot. A FAIR shot. We will raise our iron banners high, and we will clash head-to-head.” This segment got a B.
Next we are back in the ring when the lights go out and someone appears on the titantron with a hood covering his face. “At Time Crisis you saw that Crane is just a brainwashed puppet of The Undertaker. I know the truth, and it’s time that he learns as well. I broke through to him, but it wasn’t enough. I’ve had someone watching you this whole time, Crane. Like a death squad rolling in, we will not be stopped until the job is done.” The screen cuts to static and the lights come back on.” This segment got an A-
The main event of the show sees Kenny Omega taking on Jason Gory. Omega looks like a man on a mission from the opening bell. He quickly hits Gory with the V-Trigger for the win. Then grabs a mic. “Chris Raaber, Mr. C.E.O. I know what I did was wrong, but you have to look at it from my perspective: I’m a wrestler. It’s what I do, it’s what I love, but more importantly it’s how I make a living. Without this I have no way to pay bills, or get food. I had to come back, so I could live. I took my punishment, and I will beat anyone you put in front of me.” This segment got an A-

We cut to the back with Freakshow talking to Crane mid conversation. “The light at the end of the tunnel is drawing ever closer Crane. Soon you will be truly free.” Freakshow turns to the camera and starts talking. “As for you Mr. Mysterious, I have no idea who you are, and really I don’t care. You’re about as dangerous as a rubber ducky. We will find who you are, and we will put a stop to you. We are The Scythe, and we will cut you down.” This segment got an A.
