    All Elite Wrestling All Elite Wrestling: A Global Revolution


    *****ALL ELITE WRESTLING*****
    ~
    CHANGE THE WORLD

    BACKGROUND/TIMELINE

    Spoiler:

    September 1st, 2018
    Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks host a star studded show that changed the face of professional wrestling as we know it; All In. With the event selling out 10,000 seats in under half an hour, suddenly people had to take notice to the members of The Elite whether they like it or not. The event had incredible match-ups including Cody Rhodes winning the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship from Nick Aldis, Hangman Page brutalizing Joey Janela in a Chicago Street fight, and Kenny Omega besting the hottest luchador in wrestling today, Pentagon Zero. This event was by all accounts a major success, and many had to believe there would be follow up on this. What they didn't realize was just how big that ripple effect truly was...

    November 28th, 2018
    Trademarks have been filed for All Elite Wrestling, All Out, and Double Or Nothing by Jacksonville Jaguars partial owner, Tony Khan. Many have led to speculate that after the massive success of All In, that The Elite could very well be looking to start up their own promotion. If this idea is true, with the financial backing that could come from an NFL owner, than this could lead to much more interesting events to come rather than just a touring brand like the Joey Janela specials GCW holds, or even becoming just another indie. Wrestling Reporter Dave Meltzer has gone on to say that they want to rival WWE, in a move that could be both brave and stupid, depending on how they go about this development. The Young Bucks announced on their twitters that a big announcement is coming for Being The Elite on New Year's Day.

    January 1st, 2019
    Via Twitter, the bomb has been dropped - All Elite Wrestling is happening! With backing from The Khans, The Elite are officially putting on their own wrestling company. Meltzer was very quick to report that despite their friendship, they are keeping things very close to the vest and not discussing many details concerning the inner workings of the company. However, Meltzer was able to confirm that they have been in discussion with multiple major broadcasting companies in an event to make this a legitimately revolutionary move in the world of entertainment and wrestling. He would go on to list possibilities such as ESPN, The Paramount Network, and TruTV as possible suitors, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet and these are purely his own speculations. Many have to wonder if the deals they all sign will be exclusive, and if so how these will effect the talents' existing deals with New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor, the latter of which all members of The Elite barring Marty Scurll have already finished their dates for. Many stars have nearly signed with ROH but pulled out last minute citing a better offer, which up until now we had assumed to have been WWE, but now it looks as though AEW may be putting some heavy backing into their contracts as far as finances go. The names so far that have last second pulled out of Ring of Honor deals being PCO, Jay Lethal, Brody King, Jeff Cobb, and Bandido, as well as all three of SoCal Uncensored (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, and Scorpio Sky). With the trio already being on the Being The Elite web series, it's easy to assume that would be the destination for them, while the others remain uncertainties.

    January 5th, 2019
    Following an incredible Tokyo Dome show for NJPW, it has to be noticed that all members of The Elite lost their matches not only cleanly, but decisively. There was no indication that any of them would return, other than Kenny Omega who would go to war in a main event lasting over a half hour, only to lose to new champion Hiroshi Tanahashi. Many believe this is an indication that they all will be parting ways, as there has been no confirmation of the future concerning a working relationship between NJPW and AEW. The next morning, Kenny Omega would announce that he would be likely leaving NJPW for the time being, citing it as him needing to find something to revitalize his career. In the same press release, it was announced that KUSHIDA was leaving NJPW to work in America, many believe that it would be to work with WWE, but now that idea is not a certainty any longer. We hope to learn much more at the All Elite Wrestling Fan Rally in 3 days time.

    January 8th, 2019
    In Jacksonville, Florida, there was an enormous fan rally hosted by podcast host for multiple wrestling personalities, Conrad Thompson. During this event, huge changes came to the landscape of wrestling as a whole. They would announce the signing of multiple talent, some expected, but most not. The announced members of the roster currently stand as: Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, SoCal Uncensored, Hangman Page, PAC, Britt Baker DMD, Brandi Rhodes, Chris Jericho, MJF, Joey Janela, and Penelope Ford. Huge names are already involved, and not only that, but pieces of contracts have been announced for the company that could prove detrimental to WWE: They announced that not only will men and women have the same wages, but that they will include healthcare in their contracts, treating wrestlers as true employees for the first time in history. With this major news, one has to wonder what will come of the future of AEW.

    January 31st, 2019
    Mere days after the Royal Rumble, things are not all well in WWE. With multiple members of the roster being fed up with their treatment, many have began to request their release. Some of these talent include the obvious misused such as The Revival and Hideo Itami, while others apparently are much more shocking. Many believe that the idea that now there is somewhere to go to get what they feel they deserve has made many wrestlers step up to the plate in terms of talking to WWE management. Perhaps the most shocking is that of Becky Lynch. The Man has become arguably the most popular worker, male or female, on the entire roster, however as she got snubbed her Royal Rumble spot in favor of eventual winner Charlotte Flair, the fans reacted in a way reminiscent of when Batista "stole" Daniel Bryan's spotlight in 2014. Becky Lynch the next day reportedly went home and refused to come into work, requesting her release, but as of now is still in negotiations with WWE brass. Many believe this was the last straw in a building sentiment that WWE is actively trying to suppress her reactions in an attempt to give Flair that reaction instead, often to no avail. What this could mean for WWE's future is unsure, but as of now, there is no "good" end in sight in terms of an agreement.

    February 14th, 2019
    On Valentine's Day, it seems that there has been a mass release of talent for WWE, many of which were reportedly requested by the stars themselves. Among the names include Zack Ryder (requested his own due to lack of being used for all but one episode of RAW in 2018), Andrade Almas (requested to leave due to lack of program/screen time compared to what he was promised), Gran Metalik, and others. However, the headline that leads them all is that Becky Lynch has also left the WWE. All the stars have their No Compete Clause in effect, so nobody will be able to appear for any company for 30 days, but either way the landscape of wrestling could well look very different by the time the clauses end.

    The status of Kenny Omega is still unknown, with him refusing any and all interviews in terms of his contract status, and not appearing for any wrestling promotion since his loss on the 4th to Tanahashi. There have been hints at him appearing for NJPW, AEW, and WWE, but nobody can be 100% certain where he will be competing for come the time he does step back between the ropes. AEW however, HAS confirmed more signings to their roster officially, having under contract now former WWE and Impact champion Victoria Varon, Eli Drake, The Briscoes, Joey Ryan, Chelsea Van Ness, Allysin Kay, Kimber Lee, KUSHIDA, Chris Sabin, Silas Young, and Jay Lethal. Not only did they announce this bombshell, but they gave the official date for their next pay-per view event, Double or Nothing, officially announcing that the event will take place May 25th, 2019 in Las Vegas.

    March 1st, 2019

    On Twitter, AEW's Championship belts have officially been announced, with each member of The Elite tweeting out individual designs, which many think shows what division they will be competing in. The three designs include the AEW Championship (Posted by Hangman Page and Cody Rhodes), The AEW Tag Team Championship (The Young Bucks), and The AEW Women's Championship (Brandi Rhodes). Not only this, but they have also announced that at Double or Nothing and going forward, the NWA Championships will officially be recognized by AEW, as a photo shoot took place between NWA Worlds Champion Nick Aldis, NWA National Heavyweight Champion Willie Mack, Brandi Rhodes, Cody Rhodes, and NWA President William Patrick Corgan. Many believe that the success of All In, including the great press it got behind the title belts, was a driving force in this partnership. Not only that, but we received the announcement that the NWA Worlds Championship will once again be held up for grabs at Double or Nothing, as the first official match announced for the event would be Nick Aldis going against challenger Eddie Edwards. Edwards, a current member of the Impact Roster, has said he feels he has done as much as he can with the company and looks to move on. Impact President, Don Callis, being good personal friends with The Bucks and Kenny Omega seems to be helping, as they also announced they would be working with Impact Wrestling in terms of talent being able to appear on both programming under contract.

    April 7th, 2019
    Last night the NJPW Madison Square Garden G1 Event took place, citing a huge success as IWGP United States Champion, Juice Robinson, successfully defended his championship, only to be attacked by Hangman Page and The Young Bucks, all sporting AEW Gear. This event seems to be showing the end of NJPW's partnership with Ring of Honor, as NJPW now officially is endorsing All Elite Wrestling as a partner company, including their lucha associates, CMLL, in the agreement. Seemingly, ROH's inability to create a buzz without NJPW talent, as well as their inability to retain the talent they do create seems to be a deterrent for New Japan to continue the agreement, as there are no workers announced for either company's shows other than the talent exclusive to that company. This opens up people's ideas for what could happen in the future, as AEW has signed former Junior Heavyweight Champion, KUSHIDA, and that previously it was thought that Kenny Omega would have to choose between one of the two companies. Now, with Omega still having not spoken out or appearing for any promotion, it seems like its' just a matter of time before he appears.

    April 8th, 2019
    WrestleMania 35 took place last night, and while overall not an offensive card, many felt that it was a let down. With Seth Rollins unsuccessfully challenging Brock Lesnar leading to him STILL being champion, The Women's Tag Team Championship match being bumped off the card for 'lack of time' despite a 15 minute concert segment, and the main event being a subpar Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair match that ended with Flair tapping Rousey out clean, many felt that the idea that WWE had changed was nothing but lip service to keep the fans happy. People have been cancelling their network subscriptions in major numbers, and while it likely won't be a big enough paradigm shift to cause WWE to change what they do, it still is very clear that the fans are not happy with how things are.

    Conversely, today All Elite Wrestling held a press conference where they said they had wanted to change the world, which was what led them to starting their own company in the first place. They also announced more signings by listing off more matches that will be taking place on the Double or Nothing Card. All Championship matches have been announced, seemingly being a combination of people chosen by the company itself, and others being common answers on social media when asked who should be the inaugural champions. The matches announced are now including:

    AEW Women's Championship Match:
    Allysin Kay vs. Rosemary

    AEW Tag Team Championship Three Team Dance:
    Time Machine (KUSHIDA and Chris Sabin) vs. The Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz) vs. The Briscoes

    Six Man Tag Team Match:
    Cody Rhodes, Stephen Amell, and Flip Gordon vs. SoCal Uncensored

    Six Man Tag Team Match:
    Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks vs. Los Ingobernables (Naito, SANADA, and the returning founding father La Sombra!)

    A Pre-Show Battle Royal on WGN America to determine the number one contender for the AEW Championship, including Rey Fenix, Jimmy Havoc, Jay Lethal, Jeff Cobb, Tomohiro Ishii, Marko Stunt, and Joey Janela!

    And the main event...

    AEW Championship Match:
    PAC vs. Hangman Page

    Perhaps the weirdest announcement coming out of the event would also be the fact that there would be David Arquette's International Challenge, where the former WCW Champion Movie Star turned independent wrestler would be able to try to earn an AEW Contract by winning a match, but Arquette could not find an opponent in time, so there has been given an open invitation, with the winner of the match receiving an AEW Contract for the foreseeable future.

    May 24th, 2019
    24 Hours before the major event, Double or Nothing, in Las Vegas, Nevada, the wrestling world seems to have the calm before the storm. With Dave Meltzer confirming that AEW has officially signed a deal for the next two years to have a television program broadcast live, it is all but set that All Elite Wrestling could make a huge change to the face of professional wrestling forever, just as the group has set out to do. The full card is listed below, as the card looks to be an insane event, but as of now, whether the company is going to sink or swim is truly unknown. All of those questions will need to be answered 24 hours from now, with Kenny Omega leading the charge on social media, all systems appear to be a go on the event and hopefully we will hear what the next event for the company going forward will be.

    Authors Note: Hello, all. I'd advertised a Saving Impact revival, however, this was much more interesting to me. I had been planning this since before the official announcement of the company was dropped, but since I had to wait a bit anyway, I put more work into this. I used some of what has become available for the public to make some decisions, and I have used some real events from today's fan rally to make the thread more realistic in creation. The next post will be the Double or Nothing prediction thread, but as you can see, this thread is a bit different than my others. It has no graphics, and my graphics will likely not be returning in favor of putting out better written stories/matches/overall content and not be as burnt out by making designs as I have previously. I used TEW 2016 to put together a base roster/schedule deals, so they will be used for this story, however I will not be using them going forward. All of the things in the body right now are official as of Double or Nothing in this thread, but there are some surprises yet to come out. Well, longwinded explanation out of the way, I hope you enjoy this new venture as much as I feel I will.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling - Changing The World

    Good backstory, and nice to have you back booking. Surprised you've gone with the exact same name as another thread on here, though! Totally on board for you not including graphics. It's one of those things which is a nice to have, but if it's going to interfere with your enjoyment then it's not needed. Looking forward to what you do.

    One thing I'd say based on the first shows is this is a massive roster for a company who haven't really had a show yet (All In was before the company existed in my mind). I'd have thought starting small, then gradually working in more people, would make more sense than having a WWE-sized roster on day one. But that's just my opinion.

    DOUBLE OR NOTHING 5/25/19 FULL CARD:

    Announcing Team: Chael Sonnen and Excalibur

    PRE-SHOW BATTLE ROYAL, WINNER IS #1 CONTENDER FOR AEW CHAMPIONSHIP

    30 Participants
    (Confirmed To Be In The Match: Rey Fenix, Jimmy Havoc, Jay Lethal, Jeff Cobb, Tomohiro Ishii, Marko Stunt, Willie Mack, MJF, Shane Strickland, Joe Doering, David Starr and Joey Janela)
    Stab in the dark, no idea what you're going for until I see a show, but Lethal's a guy with good pedigree



    2. WINNER RECEIVES AN AEW CONTRACT

    David Arquette vs. ?
    Expecting someone fun in here to make a statement



    6. SINGLES MATCH

    Kazuchika Okada vs. Pentagon Zero
    I'm guessing Okada is here as part of the relationship with NJPW and not a regular, but still, the dude is awesome and should win forever



    3. NWA WORLDS CHAMPIONSHIP

    Nick Aldis[c] vs. Eddie Edwards
    Don't really care about the NWA Title, so Aldis to retain.



    5. SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH

    Stephen Amell, Cody Rhodes, and Flip Gordon vs. SoCal Uncensored
    I don't think Cody is jobbing in the first show of the proper start




    4. AEW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

    Allysin Kay vs. Rosemary
    Hard to say without knowing what direction you're planning on so took a stab



    1. AEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP 3 WAY DANCE

    Time Machine vs. The Briscoes vs. The Rascalz
    I've never seen these two together, but love them both individually, so them



    7. SINGLES MATCH

    Chris Jericho vs. Kota Ibushi
    Jericho is your biggest name and really someone who will bring in the most casual fans



    8. SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH

    The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega vs. Los Ingobernables (Tetsuya Naito, SANADA, and La Sombra)
    Presuming LIJ won't be a regular part of the roster, so the VPs win



    9. AEW CHAMPIONSHIP
    PAC vs. Hangman Page
    He's a bigger name, so the person you need to put your first title on

    Predictions Contest Entry Instructions:
    1.) Who Will Win Each Match? (Bonus Points for Getting Way of Victory As Well) Done
    2. Order of Matches Done
    3. Any Turns? I'm guessing there will be something huge to kick the new era off, maybe something like Cody turning on Kenny, but no idea what
    4. Any Surprise Appearances and Announcements? (Other than the Mystery Opponent) Again, yeah, there will be, but zero idea who given we're so early in
    5. Who is David Arquette's Opponent? No idea. Someone who will make a big impact though. Walter?

    Re: All Elite Wrestling - Changing The World

    I'll be honest, definitely not my ideal way to start this. It right now just screams of "Fantasy Indy Going to Be #1" too fast. Maybe I'm wrong? It's just a gigantic roster for a company that at the end of the day, hasn't really put on a show yet. Maybe this is how AEW ends up doing things in real life, but I think you skipped past the building organically stage and just went for it, ya know?

    Why are these people getting title shots? Why wouldn't a mega star like Jericho be in the title picture? You don't need to crown champions from the rip, show me why these people earn it! There's too much tell, no show going on here, the big problem of modern day WWE booking you made a point to blast.

    Are these guys who are contracted to NJPW, Impact, and CMLL going to appear normally? Are they touring with their own companies still too? There's a lot to explain still, and I honestly would rather those explanations than the big titles on the line, look at all these stars! Because at the end of the day, I don't care what about your roster's past accolades and other companies (for the most part). I want you to make me care about what they do in your company now. Make sense?

    Build AEW up to be a competitor, don't just say this company is challenging WWE. Because we all know they're really not, not out of the gate. And that's okay.

    I do appreciate that you're trying to spell everything out here up front, and just admitting "yeah I don't care, I want Becky Lynch so I'm having her in here" essentially. None of it makes any sense (WWE also has 90 day clauses not 30), it's not my cup of tea, but you do you man.

    I think you have a good lay out and you do well to try and describe everything out in detail. I think you can translate that very into your booking. I just really hope I don't see all the world's big stars on TV every week and this is given a modicum of more reality to it. If you can show me and not tell me, I think you're a quality enough guy to do something really good man. And as you know already, this probably comes off more critical than intent but I'm sure you'll get enough positive words to ground out my Grumpy Booker status :P

    I get that, and it will be addressed, don’t worry. The whole point of the backstory and all that is so the show, yknow, can be a starting point and it goes from there. There are a ton of lower level talent that are on the roster like Andy Wu, Extra Talented, Shotzi Blackheart, Exo and Vox, etc. Its about having people that aren’t stale. And with a working relationship with NJPW/CMLL/Impact, just because they’re listed as active doesn’t mean they’ll be there every week, just that they’re somebody who can appear so they’re listed. Obviously Double or Nothing has most of them, because it’s the first big show, but will the weekly show be the same? I think that’d obviously be a no.

    Why are these people getting title shots? Why wouldn't a mega star like Jericho be in the title picture? You don't need to crown champions from the rip, show me why these people earn it! There's too much tell, no show going on here, the big problem of modern day WWE booking you made a point to blast.
    It says in the backstory that the title matches were a combination of people from the office selecting match ups (which would be why PAC vs Hangman is the world title match, because I’m using their stare down and segment that actually happened at the fan rally), and fan reactions when they asked on social media who should be in the title picture. Mostly, I did what I think is going to work, and what I can make better moving forward.

    Are these guys who are contracted to NJPW, Impact, and CMLL going to appear normally? Are they touring with their own companies still too? There's a lot to explain still, and I honestly would rather those explanations than the big titles on the line, look at all these stars! Because at the end of the day, I don't care what about your roster's past accolades and other companies (for the most part). I want you to make me care about what they do in your company now. Make sense?
    I get that entirely. To be honest, some are and some aren’t, but it won’t be something I really talk too much about unless they 1.) win a title during their tour, and even then it’ll at most be them walking to the ring with it, likely no IWGP title matches in AEW. 2.) Return to AEW following a tour there, so it explains where they’ve been. I’m putting priority on the booking in this company for once and not trying to fabricate and entire worlds booking around me, which is why the only booking I mentioned were the ones that led to people leaving because, even though this is entirely fantasy booking, I like to have realistic reasoning behind certain things.

    Build AEW up to be a competitor, don't just say this company is challenging WWE. Because we all know they're really not, not out of the gate. And that's okay.
    That’s the idea, really. I wouldn’t call AEW even close to a challenger yet, but that doesn’t mean they DONT have billionaires that can write some checks to get things started. It’s clear they can, so I did that so I could build a foundation. Think of it as a starting loan, not a continuous wire transfer.

    I do appreciate that you're trying to spell everything out here up front, and just admitting "yeah I don't care, I want Becky Lynch so I'm having her in here" essentially. None of it makes any sense (WWE also has 90 day clauses not 30), it's not my cup of tea, but you do you man.
    See, here I just think you’re being negative for the sake of it lmao. I don’t mind, but you contradict yourself in why you don’t like it. I’m admitting everything up front, but it doesn’t make sense, because I used a different number than reality so I could have something happen. Usually your stuff doesn’t bother me much but that just annoys me lmao because it’s just outright negativity and about something that I can’t win with. As far as Becky goes Yeah, that’s basically the thought, along with AEW seriously needing top draws so I swiped one big one and a couple very small ones that I knew wouldn’t make a major difference if WWE didn’t use them, but if you say I should show don’t tell, how am I supposed to get that across to you now? I can’t show yet, because the show hasn’t happened, but then there’s negativity because it wasn’t explained yet... You get where I’m coming from?

    I think you have a good lay out and you do well to try and describe everything out in detail. I think you can translate that very into your booking. I just really hope I don't see all the world's big stars on TV every week and this is given a modicum of more reality to it. If you can show me and not tell me, I think you're a quality enough guy to do something really good man. And as you know already, this probably comes off more critical than intent but I'm sure you'll get enough positive words to ground out my Grumpy Booker status :P
    I appreciate that. I’ve planned a good amount for this, especially the people that will be on screen and the characters they portray. I appreciate the sentiment, and if it’s any difference maker, there’s only like 3 people I plan to bring in at all, and they won’t be coming in for at least 4-5 months. You’ll get acclimated to the roster if you tune in and you’ll get a feel, because I’m confident in how I want it to come across. I get what you were going for for the most part, like I’ve said in the past, I only have problems with negative reviews when it is only criticism with no way to fix it, or just as plain as “yeah this sucks” because those types of criticism could be helping the writer grow by explaining how to fix/do certain things differently ya feel? It’s not that deep we’re all just writing fanfic basically lmao either way it’s no hard feelings and I appreciate the feedback, excited to see what you think of Double or Nothing!

    Oh no, I sincerely didn’t notice before. I might have to message stojy about changing the title, I don’t want to come off like I took someone’s title. Sorry to Declan, totally didn’t notice my man I’m just dumb sometimes *

    Re: All Elite Wrestling - Changing The World

    Just a quick observation here, you have 58 male wrestlers that are going to be on that first show, and only 2 women booked. That seems like an odd ratio that doesn't seem to really reflect your roster because you've got almost 30 women wrestlers listed as AEW talent, really talented and diverse ones at that, but the vibe of that first card suggests women are a complete afterthought.

    I'm sure this will do better than some other AEW threads, this one feels more planned.

    That’s a fair observation and yeah definitely something I need to work more on. I think I spent more time trying to recreate All In’s sense of insane matches that I didn’t think as much as I should about putting the women on as equal footing from the start, I will say however that the pre-show battle royal says 30 Competitors and not 30 men, so at least there will be more than 2 at some point on the show, but thank you for pointing that out to me

    Breaking News!

    Breaking news ahead of the huge All Elite Wrestling debut event - Double Or Nothing! The All Elite Wrestling website has announced the official rules of All Elite Wrestling sanctioned matches, posting this update across all forms of social media, including the Being The Elite YouTube channel. The rules (listed below) show their hand slightly towards the type of wrestling product will be shown across their style of wrestling, taking some bits from different styles all across the world to make one specific style of wrestling unique to all else. With the rules also mentioning televised matches, one has to believe that a TV Deal of some sort is expected to be announced on the pay-per view, perhaps by The Bucks and Cody themselves either before or after their match.

    All Elite Wrestling Match Adjustments:

    The "Let Them Fight!" Rule:
    Action that spills to the outside will be given much more leniency than that in the ring, with the eye towards wanting there to be a clear cut winner. Because of this, all ring out counts will go until the count of 20, and will begin at the referee's digression. In that same vein, weapon rules will be very loosely regulated in terms of a disqualification. While weapon use inside the ring in a traditional match will still be a disqualification, use on the outside of the ring will sometimes be allowed, once again down to the referee's decision of what is too far.

    Time Limit Breakdown:
    All matches will have time limits unless specified otherwise. The rules for a time limit are entirely dependent on the situations surrounding the contest, however the loose outline is as follows:
    Television Match - 15 Minutes
    Television Main Event - 20 Minutes
    Supercard Match - 30 Minutes
    Supercard Main Event - 60 Minutes
    Championship Match - 60 Minutes

    Tag Team Rules:
    Borrowing rules from Lucha Libre, our tag matches do not require a tag. If your partner (or opponent in a multiman match) leaves the ring, they leave their spot open for anybody to enter the ring and become the legal man. Tags are still allowed, but not required any longer. Unless said otherwise, tag matches are still one fall to a finish.

    The Championship Rule:
    This rule is two part, one for champions and one for non-champions.

    ~For champions, your rematch is not guaranteed because you are a champion. The more successful defenses, the more likely you are to receive a rematch, but you are never guaranteed to have one just because you at one point held the championship.

    ~For challengers, it is now easier to guarantee contendership. If you score a fall over a champion, you are now able to challenge for that championship. You may choose not to cash in this opportunity, or to wait until someone else challenges, however failure to announce your desire to challenge within three (3) months of your victory relinquishes your right to challenge, as the landscape of winning and losing makes title pictures forever changing.

    Dude I am so happy to see that you are back working in this section - sooner or later you are going to be donning that HOF Crown! I really enjoyed the fact that you clarified the rules for AEW, with the match adjustments really setting the playing fields not only for yourself but also for the readership.

    All Elite Wrestling Double or Nothing 2019

    All Elite Wrestling Presents The Double or Nothing 2019 Pre-Show
    The MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, NV
    May 25th, 2019
    Blow-By-Blow: Excalibur
    Color Analyst: Chael Sonnen

    COLD OPEN

    FADE ON DISCLAIMER.


    THE FOLLOWING CONTENT MAY SHOW ADULT THEMES AS WELL AS EXCESSIVE VIOLENCE. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

    FADE OFF DISCLAIMER.

    FADE ON LOGO.
    “ALL ELITE WRESTLING: A GLOBAL REVOLUTION”

    FADE OUT LOGO.

    08:00
    FADE IN THEME SONG - “GO TO WAR” BY NOTHING MORE

    FADE IN.

    EXT. MGM GRAND ARENA - NIGHT


    We open on a shot of the arena’s exterior, as we get panning drone shots of the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, where history is bound to be made tonight. We go inside the arena where we see Chael Sonnen and Excalibur sitting at the commentation station. Both men welcome us to the arena and introduce themselves, as the masked PWG Icon says that tonight is going to be a great night for the world of wrestling, and things may never be the same again! The American Gangster speaks up and says that tonight, professional wrestling gets the kick in the ass it’s needed for decades as we will be getting the best wrestling in the world, live here in All Elite Wrestling! They run down the card shortly, talking about their possible favorites going into tonight’s huge matches as well as the idea of who will walk out with the championships tonight. As they speak we see shots of fans entering the building, some fans finishing up their tailgate parties in the parking lot, and ring crew members preparing everything for the monumental action that is going to go down here tonight. The commentary team sends us backstage, where we are told Chris Jericho is standing by to talk about his monumental match up against Kota Ibushi later tonight!
    08:05
    FADE IN.

    INT. CHRIS JERICHO’S PERSONAL LOCKER ROOM

    We go backstage and see Chris Jericho sitting, face down, in his dressing room. Photos of him wrestling all through his career, with headlines from publications involving him are also cut out and splayed across cork board next to his mirror. Jericho sits in front of a mirror, with his face paint that ready to be applied, paintbrushes strewn about. We pan over, getting a shot of the face of a grizzled veteran through the mirror’s reflection as we see a look of determination across the face of one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. With a towel Y2J wipes at his face before looking at the camera through the mirror, not breaking eye contact.

    CHRIS JERICHO. Kota… Ibushi… Tonight, you’re going to go to war with one the best wrestler in the world. And if I’m being entirely honest… It pisses me off. I am the biggest damn star in this company, and what’s my big match on the first show?! Do I main event the show fighting Kenny Omega like I did on my Jericho Cruise?! Do I win the world championship and legitimize this company FROM DAY ONE?! Or, do I get given a match against someone who’s too reckless with his own body to be a long term fixture in any major promotion? In case you’ve forgotten… My name is Chris Jericho. I’ve won championships in WCW, in WWE, in New Japan, all over the ****ing WORLD!

    BEAT.

    CHRIS JERICHO. Because I am the best in the world at what I do. And what I do is to continue to reinvent myself time after time, year after year, and still compete on the biggest stages against the best in the world. Kota Ibushi is a tough son of a b****, but Chris Jericho will not be silenced. Chris Jericho will not go unrecognized. Chris Jericho will be the AEW Champion. And tonight is the start of that journey to the top.

    As he finishes speaking, Y2J pulls up the paint brush, beginning to apply his face paint.

    The match begins in all out chaos, as everybody in the ring throws down, trying to get an early advantage in this contest. The Rascalz battle in the corner against bigger opponents PCO and Jeff Cobb, while Joey Ryan fights off Aaron Solo and Andy Wu on his own. We see bodies flying as quickly people are being tossed out, and we see the eliminations of Andrew Everett, David Starr, and Trevor Lee being tossed out of the ring as the crowd cheers on people in the ring. Jordynne Grace and Jazzy Gabert battle it out in the center of the ring, as two of the strongest women on the roster have made their way into this match due to their impressive showings recently in other promotions.


    ELIMINATED: Andrew Everett, David Starr, and Trevor Lee.

    We go to the opposite side of the ring while Rey Fenix teeters on the top rope, while Eli Drake tries to get him out of the ring as quickly as he can. Behind him we see Bandido landing a superkick to the chin of Dezmond Xavier, while the other two Rascalz charge in. Trey goes for a clothesline that gets ducked by Bandido, only for Joey Janela to pull down the top rope and eliminate him! Wentz charges Janela, but gets taken over and out to the apron! Janela ducks to the side and Bandido lands a dropkick, sending out Zachary Wentz! He’s out too! We go to the other side of the ring where we see Joe Doering lifting Rich Swann high above his head. Doering goes to press Swann out of the ring, but Willie Mack makes the stop with a clubbing blow to the back. Swann hands on his feet and both Swann and Mack land big strikes to the 6’ 5” former Triple Crown champion! Kick to the chest by Swan, elbow by Mack… Double dropkick sends Doering teetering into the ropes… DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE AND JOE DOERING IS OUT!

    ELIMINATED: Andrew Everett, David Starr, Joe Doering, Trevor Lee, Trey Miguel, and Zachary Wentz.

    Aaron Solo ducks a lariat from Ishii, going into the corner. Solo tries to eliminate Ishii, but Toru Yano gets behind him, landing a low blow to Solo! The camera pans in on Yano, who shrugs with a look of glee on his face, having helped his stable mate. Toru Yano grabs Solo by the back of the head and tosses him over and out! Quickly, Eli Drake rushes behind him and tosses him out as well! Yano lands hard on the mat on the outside, but Drake flips off the crowd as they boo. Drake turns around, JUST IN TIME TO CATCH A HEAD BUTT TO THE CHEST FROM ISHII! We go to the other side of the ring where we see Andy Wu trading shots with Marty Scurll. They send swift strike combinations back and forth, with both men ducking and weaving the strikes in between slick combinations. The masked japanese wrestling lands a pump kick to the chest, shoving Scurll off the ropes, just in time to catch a superkick - Pump fake! Kick to the shin! We turn to another part of the ring where we see Jimmy Havoc toss out Sammy Guevara!

    ELIMINATED: Aaron Solo, Andrew Everett, David Starr, Joe Doering, Sammy Guevara, Toru Yano, Trevor Lee, Trey Miguel, and Zachary Wentz.

    We cut now to see the top left of the ring from hardcam, where we Brody King and PCO are pushing Tomohiro Ishii on the top rope, trying to get him out of the ring and subsequently, this match. Ishii is holding on for dear life, as he has a solid grasp on the top rope. Brody King climbs to the middle rope to try and help the elimination with more leverage, but from behind he gets shoved by Meiko Satomura! King tumbles over the top and out of the match! A veteran move by Satomura to find the opening how she did, but PCO drops Ishii for a second and looks at Meiko in a fit of rage. PCO charges Meiko for a clothesline, but the joshi star is able to drop the top rope down, and PCO takes himself out of the match too! Satomura with two huge eliminations back to back as the chaos continues to unfold in the ring! We cut to another spot of the ring, with Marty Scurll trying to shove Bandido off the apron with his boot to the throat of the luchador, but Bandido is holding on, not willing to let this chance pass him by. Behind them, we see a body soard over the top rope and out of the ring, and an instant replay shows that Andy Wu just got launched, nearly to the third row, by Jordynne Grace! Grace poses for the hardcam, showing off her muscles, but grabs grabbed from behind by Jazzy Gabert! Gabert tries to send Grace packing, but Jordynne Grace shifts the momentum last second, and now it’s Jazzy that goes over the top and all the way to the floor! Bodies are flying as we narrow down who will be the first challenger for the man crowned World Champion here tonight!

    ELIMINATED: Aaron Solo, Andrew Everett, Andy Wu, Brody King, David Starr, Jazzy Gabert, Joe Doering, PCO, Sammy Guevara, Toru Yano, Trevor Lee, Trey Miguel, and Zachary Wentz.

    Back in the center of the ring, a strike battle gets under way as Rey Fenix and Rich Swann start sending massive shots to each other, kicks to the thigh from Swann, responded in kind with an overhand chop to the chest by Fenix! Kick! Chop! Kick! Chop! Kick - No! Fenix checks the kick, shoving Swann back into the ropes - SUPERKICK! Rich Swann grabs at the ropes, loopy from the shot heard round the building, as Willie Mack rushes in and clotheslines him out! Swans own friend just sent him packing! Rich Swann gains his bearings for a moment, looking shocked and furious, and Willie Mack looks upset as well by his actions. We see Mack say “Every man for himself.” This statement rings true immediately, as Rey Fenix quickly lands a dropkick to the shoulder blades, now sending Willie Mack over the ropes and out of the match! Mack looks shocked on the ground, sitting down next to where Swann is standing. Rich Swann looks down in anger before shaking his head and walking off. We go back to the ring to see Joey Janela get thrown over the top rope by Ishii! Ishii turns around and finds himself face to face with Jordynne Grace! The two stare down, and Ishii looks like he’s going to walk away, but Grace steps in his path! The crowd ooh’s in shock as Grace shows her guts by stepping to one of the hardest hitters in the world. Ishii tries to walk the other way, but Grace steps in his way once again! Jordynne starts talking trash, telling him to take a shot, but Ishii shakes his head no. Grace hauls off, landing a stiff right hand to the head of Ishii! Ishii takes a step back, as the crowd starts to chant for Grace.

    ELIMINATED: Aaron Solo, Andrew Everett, Andy Wu, Brody King, David Starr, Jazzy Gabert, Joe Doering, Joey Janela, PCO, Rich Swann, Sammy Guevara, Toru Yano, Trevor Lee, Trey Miguel, Willie Mack, and Zachary Wentz.

    Ishii looks back at Grace, getting visibly more angry. Grace shoves Ishii in the chest, smacking her own chest, openly challenging Ishii to take his best show. Ishii lands a chop to the chest! The crowd Woo’s out in kind, as Grace staggers back. Grace lands another right hand to Ishii! She yells at Ishii to bring it! The Stone Pitbull lands another chop to the chest! Jordynne Grace bends over, her breath taken out of her. Grace bolts upright, moving her hair from her face as she lets out a brutal battle cry! Grace lands an elbow to the head! Ishii goes for another chop, but Jordynne ducks, hitting the ropes and landing a lariat! Ishii staggers back! Jordynne hits the ropes again - Another lariat but again Ishii stays on his feet! Grace winds up her shoulder, and hits the ropes - But Ishii follows just behind her! Jordynne Grace realizes Ishii has moved and turns to find him - LARIAT FROM THE STONE PITBULL! GRACE GOES DOWN! But not for long as she gets back up and lands a brutal discus forearm - AND BOTH GO DOWN IN PAIN! We go to another side of the ring, as Joey Ryan tosses Dezmond Xavier onto the apron! Xavier keeps his hold on the top rope, but Joey Ryan reaches into his gear. Ryan pulls out a bottle of baby oil! Ryan starts to pour it on himself - And then on the ropes?! Dezmond tries pulling himself up, but now he can’t get a grip on it! Frantically, we can see Dezmond start to realize he can’t hold on much longer, dangling on the edge of elimination, his hands starting to lose grip. With a last effort, Dezmond swings his feet up, trying to grab someone with his legs to get a grip - He grabs the head of Shane Strickland! Strickland gets pulled over and Dezmond Xavier eliminates him! Before Dezmond can go any other good, Joey Ryan lands a superkick to the back of the head! Dezmond falls out of the ring and is eliminated!

    ELIMINATED: Aaron Solo, Andrew Everett, Andy Wu, Brody King, David Starr, Dezmond Xavier, Jazzy Gabert, Joe Doering, Joey Janela, PCO, Rich Swann, Sammy Guevara, Shane Strickland, Toru Yano, Trevor Lee, Trey Miguel, Willie Mack and Zachary Wentz.

    We cut to a shot of MJF, lying down under a turnbuckle and clutching the ropes with both his arms and legs. He isn’t fighting anybody. Excalibur comes alive on the microphone with anger, as apparently, MJF has been doing this for the entirety of the match and has yet to be noticed, playing dead whenever somebody walks by. Right next to him, we find Meiko Satomura fighting it out with Jay Lethal, both fighters on the ring apron. The trade shots back and forth, teetering towards elimination. Jay Lethal lands a pendulum enziguiri with the aid of the ropes. Satomura staggers back, landing a pump kick to the chin! Both stagger, trying to catch their breath, but suddenly MJF has sprung alive! MJF charges! MJF goes crashing into both, sending both competitors down and out of the match! MJF gets boo’s from the crowd, which he laughs at before going right back to his “hiding place.” We go back to the ring where in the center of the ring there’s now a stare down between Marty Scurll and Jimmy Havoc! The two brits share some words, before Havoc lends a forearm to the chest! Marty lands a slap to the face! Jimmy Havoc goes for a clothesline, but it gets ducked! Off the ropes goes Havoc and Marty ducks to the mat. Havoc rebounds, gaining more speed, as Scurll leapfrogs over! Havoc hits the ropes just as Joey Ryan pulls down the ropes from the outside! Havoc tumbles over and out of the ring!

    ELIMINATED: Aaron Solo, Andrew Everett, Andy Wu, Brody King, David Starr, Dezmond Xavier, Jay Lethal, Jazzy Gabert, Jimmy Havoc, Joe Doering, Joey Janela, Meiko Satomura, PCO, Rich Swann, Sammy Guevara, Shane Strickland, Toru Yano, Trevor Lee, Trey Miguel, Willie Mack and Zachary Wentz.

    Eli Drake tries to shove Bandido over the top rope, but Bandido’s agility allows him to land on the apron! He gets lands a quick right hand to Eli Drake before springboarding into the air - NO! HE SLIPPED?! The oil from the ropes caused Bandido to slip on the top rope from the springboard, landing gut first on the top rope! MJF once again luckily springs to life, shoving Bandido back and getting the elimination once again off his ability to pick and choose his moments, with a partial assist needing to go indirectly to Joey Ryan! .Eli Drake and MJF look to each other and Drake motions towards the rest of the people left as they move in. We go to a wide shot of the ring and we see everybody left battling it out. Jeff Cobb is doing what he can to try and shove out Rey Fenix in the top right corner, Jordynne Grace and Joey Ryan are jocking for position in the bottom left, while Marty and Ishii both get jumped from behind by MJF and Eli Drake! We go to Jeff Cobb and Fenix, where Fenix lands a back elbow to get some separation. Rey Fenix gets to his feet on the top rope before taking to the sky for a Cross Body! CAUGHT BY COBB! Cobb gets a smirk across his face before ducking down and spinning through the air - Tour of the Islands! Jeff Cobb grabs the limp body of Rey Fenix, throwing him over his shoulder before making his way to the ropes. Fenix grabs a hold of the top rope, trying to get a grip that can stop him from being sent out of here. Fenix falls onto the apron, as Cobb gets trying to shove Fenix off the apron. Cobb, however, shouldn’t keep his focus so short sighted, as now MJF and Eli Drake run from behind and each grab a leg - Sending Cobb out of the ring! He’s out too!

    ELIMINATED: Aaron Solo, Andrew Everett, Andy Wu, Bandido, Brody King, David Starr, Dezmond Xavier, Jay Lethal, Jazzy Gabert, Jeff Cobb, Jimmy Havoc, Joe Doering, Joey Janela, Meiko Satomura, PCO, Rich Swann, Sammy Guevara, Shane Strickland, Toru Yano, Trevor Lee, Trey Miguel, Willie Mack and Zachary Wentz.

    Eli Drake goes on to go back to beating down on Ishii, as Marty Scurll lays down and out on the mat. MJF, however, is taking this chance to gloat to the crowd for the “Great” work that he’s doing, all while Excalibur and Sonnen argue over whether it’s a cowardly strategy or genius one. With his celebrating, he doesn’t seem to notice Joey Ryan and Jordynne Grace staring him down from behind. MJF backs up, bumping into Jordynne Grace in the process. MJF looks fearful as he turns around, but once he turns and sees Grace standing there, he begins… Laughing? MJF starts yelling for her to get out of the ring, mixed in with a few derogatory statements that she “doesn’t belong in a man’s ring.” Grace has a cold expression on her face as MJF reaches out to pat her on the head. Grace grabs the wrist of MJF before he can touch her, and MJF suddenly starts to look pissed. He begins to yell something, but Grace pulls his arm and takes him to the ground with a lariat! MJF hits the deck, as Joey Ryan motions to the crowd, pointing towards his groin. Ryan pulls out the famous lollipop while the crowd begins to chant “JO-EY! JO-EY! JO-EY!” Joey takes the lollipop, shoving it into the mouth of MJF! SUPERKICK TO THE CHIN! MJF staggers back, and Jordynne Grace grabs him by the scruff of his neck - and sends him over the top, as a high pitched shriek comes from the man. Grace and Ryan both look down at MJF on the outside, with Ryan celebrating, but from behind Eli Drake grabs a leg of each, sending both of them packing now! HUGE moves that sent three big players packing has narrowed us down to the final four!

    ELIMINATED: Aaron Solo, Andrew Everett, Andy Wu, Bandido, Brody King, David Starr, Dezmond Xavier, Jay Lethal, Jazzy Gabert, Jeff Cobb, Jimmy Havoc, Joe Doering, Joey Janela, Joey Ryan, Jordynne Grace, Meiko Satomura, MJF, PCO, Rich Swann, Sammy Guevara, Shane Strickland, Toru Yano, Trevor Lee, Trey Miguel, Willie Mack and Zachary Wentz.

    We go to the wide shot once again and in each corner stands a finalist. Tomohiro Ishii, Rey Fenix, Eli Drake, and Marty Scurll. Four men left, only one can be number one contender! Ishii charges at Drake, while Fenix and Scurll begin to grapple. Fenix and Scurll use quick chain wrestling, counter after counter, each looking to get a leg up on the other. Fenix lands an overhand chop to the chest of Scurll, before rushing off the ropes. Scurll runs forward too, landing a PK to the shin of Fenix! The speed sends Fenix toppling over, landing head first on the mat! We turn to see Eli Drake on the top rope thanks to Ishii, but Drake shoves him off! Ishii leaps into the air, landing an enziguiri to the shoulder of Eli Drake! Drake teeters, nearly out, as Ishii stays on the mat on all fours to catch his breath. Marty Scurll sees his chance, as The Villain charges, leaping off the back of Ishii to land a dropkick to the chest of Drake! ELI DRAKE IS OVER AND OUT! Drake can’t believe it, having a temper tantrum on the outside. Fenix staggers back up, just in time to catch a chop from Ishii! Fenix falls back into the corner, as Marty Scurll gets a chop from Ishii too, The Villain falling into the opposite turnbuckle. Ishii wastes no time, the freight train style rushing into the corner and hitting a lariat on Rey Fenix! The Stone Pitbull takes off the other way, nailing Scurll now! Ishii once again takes the other direction towards the luchador, but Fenix lands a superkick out of thin air! Ishii stumbles back, staying on his feet, turning towards Scurll - Another superkick! Ishii falls to both knees, and Marty Scurll grabs around his head, taking him to the ropes. Scurll pushes him on the top rope, as Ishii slowly tumbles onto the apron. Ishii hooks a guillotine around the head of The Villain, trying to take Scurll over with him now! Scurll teeters, leaning on the ropes, as Ishii is down on one knee on the apron, pulling with all of his might! Ishii is able to get Marty over, and now both men are on the apron! Marty hauls off, slapping Ishii in the face! Ishii clutches his face, checking his chin before landing a headbutt to the chest! Both men lean over, trying to catch their breath. WAIT! FENIX OUT OF NOWHERE! DROPKICK TO BOTH MEN - A FOOT FOR EACH! AND THEY BOTH TUMBLE TO THE FLOOR!

    WINNER!

    FADE ON WINNING GRAPHIC - FADE OFF.

    Fenix falls to his knees in the ring, as Justin Roberts yells out to the fans in attendance that Rey Fenix is your winner and will be the first challenger for the AEW Championship! We cut to the ringside, where Ishii looks pissed off, walking to the back, but Marty Scurll hasn’t moved. Marty remains sitting on the floor, with disbelief in his face, his head in his hands. The Villain sits at the base of the ramp, not moving other than his breathing from the brutal affair. We see Rey Fenix leave the ring and offer his hand to Marty. Scurll looks up, and sees the hand offered, as Fenix says something in Spanish. Scurll gets a look of disgust on his face, before standing up on his own power. Marty gets in the face of Rey Fenix, looking like he may break down into tears at any moment. Scurll looks like he may do something, as the crowd waits with bated breath. Marty takes a breath and walks to the back, seemingly changing his mind.

    FADE OUT.

    HARD CUT.

    EXT. MGM GRAND ARENA - LOWER THIRD READS “Earlier Today At Double or Nothing Fan Rally!”

    We cut to a replay of the fan rally from earlier today, as we saw the 14,000 fans in attendance have a blast before the show. We see Sean Mooney standing by and giving a report that people are all riled up and excited to get the night started. He interviews a few fans asking about big things they expect for tonight, with one saying that Hangman Page is going to walk out as world champion, someone else says that Okada and Pentagon could be the match of the year, and the third person claiming that DDP was going to finally get his revenge on David Arquette after all these years. Sean Mooney laughs the last sentiment off and says that we are mere minutes away from the event beginning, sending it back to the broadcast booth. A voiceover from Chael and Excalibur is played over shots of fans tailgating and meeting up with some of the talent at the meet and greet. Shots are shown of the Starrcast panels, while we have call ins from fans of their opinions of the evening as well.
    08:45
    HARD CUT.

    INT. MGM GRAND ARENA

    The two men talk about the things the fans had to say, with Sonnen pressing the issue of who could answer the open challenge from Arquette, and who will officially join the AEW roster. We see the countdown clock reaching its final seconds, and we are reminded of how to order the pay-per view from both the FITE App and local cable providers, as the show is about to get underway. A thank you is given to WGN America for once again hosting the pre-show, this time for the first ever All Elite Wrestling official event, and we hear the send off, the feed officially ending on the pre-show.

    We see stills of Las Vegas, as a somber piano rift begins. We see black and white shots of Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, and Kenny Omega. A single photo hangs on the screen, all members of The Elite in the ring after All In went off the air in September. Suddenly, a guitar shrieks, as the photo burns as we see multiple press releases announcing the debut of All Elite Wrestling. We see Tony Khan talking to members of the media, as well as shots from Fan Rallies and meet ups held by The Elite. We hear a deep, male voice begin to speak.

    NARRATOR. When things grow old… They either die on their last legs…

    We see a shot of NWA Champion, Nick Aldis, losing his championship to Cody at All In.

    NARRATOR. Or adapt to survive…

    Kevin Kelly yelling out fills our ears, seeing Chris Jericho become the IWGP Intercontinental Champion last year.

    NARRATOR. When the dust settles, did you give it your all?

    Joey Janela being slammed through a ladder on the apron from All In plays in sepia tone.

    NARRATOR. Or did you rest on your laurels while others passed you by?

    We see Okada losing to Jay White in under 15 Minutes at the Tokyo Dome, followed by an emotional breakdown after losing the New Japan Cup finals to Minoru Suzuki.

    NARRATOR. This is your chance to prove all the naysayers wrong. To prove that you really can do what you set your mind to.

    Footage of David Arquette fighting through the indies, and then a still of his horrific laceration against Nick Gage hangs on the screen.

    NARRATOR. Tonight, all the chips are in, and you must choose whether you raise or fold.

    PAC and Hangman staring down at the fan rally back in January comes up, along with footage of each of their signature moves.

    FADE IN - “THE DOPE SHOW” BY MARILYN MANSON

    The Dope Show by Marilyn Manson starts up over the PA System, as the stage lights up with gold and black lights. The video wall shows highlights of the travelled athlete across the world, both in wrestling and MMA. Pinkies up, and in shimmering, golden gear, out marches AK-47, it’s Allysin Kay! Sections of the crowd chant and cheer for her, with Excalibur running down her championships in her career, including her times in Shimmer and Impact Wrestling! Kay gets into the ring and starts stretching in the corner as the lights go down.

    SONG FADE OUT

    FADE IN - “LEFT BEHIND” BY DALE OLIVER

    We hear a shriek over the PA system as we hear the familiar tune of Rosemary’s theme music. The video wall floods with a red liquid as the lights flash red and black, a single red spotlight shines from the center of the stage, and we see a silhouette stalk in front of its glare. Smoke floods the floors, as the figure becomes shrouded, almost lost in the mist. Step by step, the dark figure makes its way to the top of the stage. It throws its arms up, and the lights come up in red, shining a single, blood red spotlight on Rosemary standing on the stage! The Demon Assassin gets to the ring, as she stares down one of her greatest rivals across from her in the ring.

    SONG FADE OUT

    Justin Roberts does your official introductions as referee Brian Hebner holds the AEW Women’s Championship Belt high above his head, showing the crowd in attendance just what these women are about to go to war for. Hebner hands the belt to a ring hand and brings both women to the middle. He quickly goes over the rules and asks if either women has any questions. Neither break their stare from the other and Hebner sends them back into their corners before ringing the bell!


    [MATCH #1]
    AEW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP
    Singles Match
    Referee: Brian Hebner
    Time Limit: 60 Minutes
    Allysin Kay vs. Rosemary


    Allysin steps forward, leaning in with a hand to start to grapple, but Rosemary takes her time, slowly stepping up to her opponent with a sadistic smile across her face. Rosemary lunges in, and both women lock up with a collar and elbow tie-up. Rosemary jocks into a headlock, but Kay quickly slips out the back with a hammerlock now to the Demon Assassin. Rosemary smacks at her shoulder, trying to stop the force being applying as she tries to get a grab of AK’s hair, to no avail. Rosemary stumbles forward, using her momentum to grab a hold of the top rope. Rosemary holds her hands up, as Hebner gets to a count of three. Kay lets go - BEFORE LANDING A BOOT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF ROSEMARY! The Demon Assassin crumbles to the mat, as the referee admonishes Allysin Kay. Kay pulls her opponent away from the rope, hooking the far leg for a cover! 1...2 No! Early two kick out from Rosemary, but Allysin Kay locks in a headlock on the ground, grinding away on the head and neck now.


    Allysin lifts her back, applying as much pressure as possible, trying to wear down the opponent here. Rosemary starts to swing her legs around, looking for an opening, before planting on knee on the mat. A base set, Rosemary now looks to battle back to her feet, and she does, now both women standing. Kay lets go for a moment, driving the point of the elbow onto the top of the neck! Right back into the headlock goes Allysin Kay, with Rosemary back down to one knee. Rosemary staggers back, taking them both into the ropes before sending Kay across the ring with momentum. Both women rush forward, driving their shoulders into each other - both competitors staggering yet neither falling. Rosemary rushes to the ropes, another shoulder block with neither hitting the ground. Kay and Rosemary trade some verbal jabs, before Kay smacks at her chest, hitting another shoulder barge that sends Rosemary into the ropes herself. Rebounding, Rosemary steps in and lands a forearm directly to the chest that doubles Allysin Kay over! Rosemary lifts her face back up, hitting a second forearm into the chest! Rosemary lands a barrage of blows to the chest, sending AK-47 into the ropes. Rosemary once again goes off the ropes, landing a dropkick into the chest of Allysin Kay, who falls between the ropes and to the outside.

    Rosemary gets out on the other end of the ring while we get a close up shot of Kay trying to catch her breath after the strikes to her chest. Kay stumbles past the ring steps, directly into a surprise attack from Rosemary! Lariat from The Demon Assassin sends Kay to the ground! Rosemary stands up on a chair near the barricade, screaming out to the crowd who cheer in kind. Rosemary gets back to the floor, as Kay leans against the ring apron, trying to catch her bearings. A shot is shown of the AEW Women’s Championship belt, showing just what these two women are about to go to war for. We fade back to the action, as we see Rosemary measuring up… Knife edge chop as woo’s fill the MGM Grand. Kay tries to get away, but Rosemary meets her at the barricade. Rosemary spins her around, landing another stiff chop into the chest! The referee gets to the count of 7, as we are reminded that the ring out count in AEW sanctioned matches are a 20 count. Rosemary grabs Allysin Kay, looking to throw her into the guardrail on the opposite side of the steel barrier, but Kay shifts momentum, instead throwing Rosemary! The Demon Assassin crashes and burns, as Kay rushes in, landing a boot to the side of the head!

    Allysin Kay backs off, wiping at her chest before lifting both hands in the air, pinkies raised, to taunt the crowd. At the count of 13, Kay grabs Rosemary by the back of the head, tossing her opponent back into the ring, seemingly ready to finish up this match. Kay gets onto the apron, starting to climb between the ropes, but Rosemary kicks the rope, sending it into the face of AK-47! Startled and confused, Kay clutches at her eyes as she falls to the mat. Rosemary grabs her by the neck, hoisting her up on her shoulders, and it looks like Rosemary is trying to end it already! Rosemary takes a step forward, but Kay slips out the front of the hold keeping a front facelock. The MMA Fighter ducks down, rolling through, and keeping her grip as she has locked in a seated guillotine! Rosemary seemingly has nowhere to go, as Brian Hebner starts to check and see if she submits. Excalibur exclaims that this is how she defeated Rosemary almost two years ago in Impact Wrestling! Rosemary looks to be fading, but she is able to get her legs out from under the seated Allysin Kay. Rosemary jackknifes over, finding a cover while still in the hold! 1...2… No! Kay reluctantly has to let go and stay in the match. Both women are down on the mat after this very physical encounter, and the camera pulls back to see the crowd cheering.

    Rosemary lays flat on her back, with her legs folded under from the awkward rolls. She sputters and coughs, trying to refill her lungs as the effects of the guillotine are being felt. Kay uses the ropes to regain a vertical base, as she walks over to Rosemary. AK notices that her opponent seems worse for wear and takes a moment to catch her breath, holding her pinkies high above her head. Allysin turns all around, but she stops with her back to Rosemary as the Demon Assassin emits a shriek. The camera moves behind Rosemary, seeing her seemingly rise from the dead, as Kay slowly turns around in a mixture of fear and disbelief. Kay shakes her head, rushing at Rosemary and driving a boot into the chest! Rosemary stops for a moment, but rises up again - screaming in rebellion. Another boot from Kay! Rosemary goes down - BUT RISES AGAIN! Kay seems ready for this one, running forward with a knee strike to the chin! Cover from Allysin Kay! 1...2...3! NO! LAST SECOND! Rosemary got her foot on the bottom rope at the last possible second!

    Allysin Kay wastes no time climbing to her feet, grabbing Rosemary by the hair as well. Allysin Kay motions for the end, getting Rosemary in the powerbomb position, and lifting her up to her shoulders in a Razor’s Edge position. Rosemary slips out the back, and comes face to face with Hebner. Rosemary grabs on his shirt, spinning him around! Kay turns back to Rosemary - RED MIST! MIST IN THE EYES! Rosemary hooks the arm - SKYWARD SUPLEX (Olympic Slam)! Rosemary hooks the legs, covering the face of Kay up - as Hebner rushes in for the cover! 1...2… NO! Kick out from Kay! The Death Dealer sits up in shock, she can’t believe that this match is still going! AK-47 claws at her eyes, rubbing the mist out as much as she can as she groans in pain from the burning sensation. Rosemary stalks for her opponent, letting out a cry of rage, one way or the other she is going to put this match away. Allysin Kay returns to her knees, and Rosemary lifts her to her feet. Hoisting her up to her shoulders, looking for the Red Wedding - But now Allysin Kay slips out the back! Kay shoves the back of the Demon Assassin, sending her off the ropes. Lariat attempt by Rosemary - Ducked by Kay and now both women hit the ropes. Lariat attempt by Kay now, ducked again and both women keep running - but Allysin switches directions, running to the perpendicular ropes. They both charge towards the center, but Rosemary doesn’t notice until too late - THE SILENCER (The Pounce) SENDS ROSEMARY ACROSS THE RING AND CRASHING HARD! Kay falls into the cover, hooking both legs! 1...2...3!


    WINNER!

Kay slowly gets up to her feet, as she he handed her new championship by Brian Hebner, and has her hand raised high. We get a shot from a low perspective, showing the dazed and brutalized Rosemary on the ground as Allysin Kay stands tall beside her. Kay grabs one of the ring hands, motioning to her waist. The hand straps the belt around the new champions waist, as she stands with her arms up and pinkies raised. Rosemary leaves the ring, with hands helping her to the back as she holds an ice pack to her neck. Allysin gets out of the ring, and leaves as well, using a towel handed to her to wipe remnants of the mist off her face.

    INT. LOCKER ROOM

    We go backstage where we see iconic interviewer - SEAN MOONEY - waiting in the locker room.

    SEAN MOONEY. Ladies and gentlemen, Sean Mooney here backstage in the locker room looking to get some words from one of our main event competitors. Please welcome, Hangman Page.

    CROWD POP

    The crowd pops as some “HANG-MAN *clap clap* HANG-MAN *clap clap*” chants pop up around the arena, and into frame steps one half of our main event, Hangman Page!.

    SEAN MOONEY. Hangman, tonight you have your first opportunity to become a world champion in this industry. With your opponent being a world traveled veteran in PAC, and Cody Rhodes having pegged you as “the future of professional wrestling," what do you have to say to those who doubt you will walk out tonight with the All Elite Wrestling Championship?

    HANGMAN PAGE. Mooney, the people doubting me are the people who haven’t been watching. This past year was a breakout year for me, and people started to see me for what I truly am; a hungry and talented wrestler who will stop at nothing to get to the top. I might not have been world champion before like PAC, I may not have as many accolades under my belt, and I may not have been doing this as long, but to me, that tells the story of All Elite Wrestling perfectly.

    Page looks up directly into the camera, growing in intensity as he truly feels everything he is laying out.

    HANGMAN PAGE. We started because the wrestling world got complacent. People seemed to forget was wrestling was built on; shocking moments that make you realize that anything can happen in this sport. Anything can happen. We’ve seen luchadors topple giants. We’ve seen a son of a plumber become recognized as one of the best damn wrestlers in history. We’ve seen people who were told, “You can’t make it because X Y and Z,” turn it up a gear and shout to the world “Screw you, I am the best.”

    CROWD POP

    Page pauses for a second, taking a deep breath before continuing.

    HANGMAN PAGE. And tonight isn’t going to be any different. Tonight is the night that I prove to the world that where you’ve been and what you’ve done in the past doesn’t matter, all that matters is the here and the now. And right now? I’m the best damn wrestler in the world, and PAC is going to learn that. We’ll get into the ring and go to war, but in the end there is only one result - Hangman Page is crowned the FACE of All Elite Wrestling and the first ever heavyweight champion. PAC wants to be called The KING… That’s fine, but there will always be someone ready to take that throne for themselves, and tonight that’s me. And if you don’t believe me, PAC… Screw you. I’m. The. BEST!

    The video wall flashes green, as we hear The Mountain by Three Days Grace play through the speakers of the arena. The crowd claps along to the song, as the song drops into a breakdown, and Eddie Edwards appears on the stage, yelling out to the crowd! In his new styled look, a backwards ball cap, jeans, and notably a “Natural Born Killers” T-Shirt, perhaps paying homage to former tag team partner, Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards stands on the stage, playing to the crowd. He points to the back, and out walks his wife, Alisha, holding his signature Kendo Stick! The weapon gifted to him by Tommy Dreamer was a cause for a lot of the internal struggles of the Edwards Clan over the last year, but now husband and wife are closer than ever, which could prove dangerous to anybody in their way. We hear Excalibur and Sonnen recap this rivalry which has gone on mostly across NWA’s Ten Pounds of Gold YouTube series, and Eddie Edwards social media;

    EXCALIBUR. Nick Aldis claimed that Edwards doesn’t deserve the NWA Worlds Championship, saying that Eddie has gone off the deep end and has, ‘lost what made him one of the best technicians in the world!

    CHAEL SONNEN. Eddie Edwards may have embraced a more violent and brutal style, but that doesn’t mean he lost a step. Getting better at something doesn’t make you worse, and while I think Nick Aldis does have the edge in terms of a straight one on one match, he needs to be careful not to underestimate the challenger here.

    EXCALIBUR. [Excitement Growing] These are two of the best in the world today, both men being former Impact Wrestling Heavyweight Champions, Aldis a 2 time NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, while Edwards has held the Ring of Honor and GHC Heavyweight Championships, both men know what it takes to make it to the mountaintop tonight, but only one man will be able make it to the peak of their destiny here tonight!

In gold and white gear, and an extravagant robe, Nick Aldis appears from the back with an air of confidence surrounding him. Aldis walks in a circle on the stage, as the golden sparklers around him fall to the ground, illuminating the stage and the champion to near blinding level. Aldis opens his robe to reveal his championship belt strapped around his waist. Down the ramp marches the champion, as the crowd boos and jeers at him walking by. Aldis gets into the ring and removes the title from his waist, holding it high and in the face of challenger Eddie Edwards! Alisha goes to hold him back, talking down her husband while referee Bryce Remsburg separates the two men, telling the champion to get into his corner.

    Nick Aldis[95th Champion] vs. Eddie Edwards w/ Alisha Edwards


    Excalibur runs down the stats of both men, while also noting Eddie’s second at his corner, Alisha Edwards, showing that these two men are very evenly matched in this encounter. Both men circle each other around the ring, looking to feel out the waters before rushing in at the moment, which Sonnen points out is out of character for Edwards as of late. Eddie Edwards shoots in, going for a double leg takedown. Aldis comes down with a double axe handle to the top of the neck! Edwards clutches his head, and the champion piefaces the challenger back into his corner. Nick Aldis taunts to the crowd, while Eddie checks his lips, visibly pissed off. The two men get back to the center of the ring and measure a second before both lunge into a collar and elbow tie up. Eddie Edwards ducks in and hooks in an armbar over his shoulder. Aldis shifts his weight, pulling in Eddie Edwards into a headlock! The champion tries to take over the challenger, but Edwards weighs himself down and blocks the transition. Eddie Edwards uses his weight shift to charge both men back into the ropes. Edwards whips Adlis off the ropes, but following just behind him! Aldis hits the brakes in the center of the ring, turning into a lariat - ducked! Eddie hits the ropes again, but Nick drops down looking for a backdrop - Edwards goes flying - LANDS ON HIS FEET! The NWA Champion turns around right into a head kick from Edwards! Nick Aldis stumbles back, rolling to the outside of the ring as he clutches his head. Eddie Edwards taunts to the crowd, showing he can still hang with the best of the best in terms of technical wrestling!

    Aldis staggers back, trying to regain his bearings, but he comes face to face with Alisha Edwards - who’s holding a the Kendo Stick! The calling card of the Edwards Clan, a gift from Tommy Dreamer, is now present during the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship contest! Aldis shakes his head and turns back to the ring - TOPE SUICIDA FROM EDDIE EDWARDS! Both men crash into the steel guardrail! Nick Aldis falls to the ground, holding his head in his arms, while Eddie is back up on the guardrail with one foot, yelling out to the audience. Edwards turns back to Aldis, already rolling back into the ring. The challenger nods to his wife, who tells him to get into the ring. Aldis gets to his feet, catching his balance back, while Eddie Edwards slides in. Nick Aldis pounces on him, sending rights and lefts raining down onto the back and neck! The crowd lets out their disdain for the current champion, as he stands up and bows in front of them. Eddie gets back to a knee, but Nick gets him in a front facelock before taking the challenger up and over with a suplex! Float over into the cover! 1… Kick out. Nick Aldis transitions into a keylock, and now works to wear down the world traveled veteran. Eddie Edwards struggles on the mat as Alisha yells on words of encouragement.

    Edwards writhes around in pain on the mat, as the champion now lifts a knee to press into the side of the head. On commentary, Sonnen talks about the technical prowess of Nick Aldis, claiming that the lost art of grappling has been revived thanks to the NWA Worlds Champion. As Excalibur begins to defend Eddie Edwards and his own skill, Edwards is able to demonstrate, finding an opening and being able to climb to a knee as the crowd claps to cheer him on. The challenger sends a right hand to the ribs! Aldis staggers back, gasping momentarily in pain. Another right to the rib cage from Eddie Edwards, as the grasp is now broken. Edwards leans back, before sending a deafening chop into the chest of his opponent! Eddie shakes his left hand loose, landing a shock left jab! Chock again from Eddie! Jab again! Edwards staggers Aldis back into the ropes, sending the champion across the ring with an irish whip - countered by Nick Aldis, who drops down for a back body drop. Eddie Edwards stops short, landing a kick to the chest of the 90 degree champion! Nick Aldis walks towards the corner clutching his chest in pain, as Edwards moves in. Knife edged chop to the chest of the champion! Aldis tries to cover up, but his challenger moves his arms out of the way, chop again! A third! Eddie Edwards starts to go rabid, as Excalibur calls out the homage to Kenta Kobashi with the Machine Gun Chops! Eddie Edwards slows down - BUT SPEEDS RIGHT BACK UP TO FULL SPEED, YELLING OUT TO THE CROWD!
    Edwards grabs the back of Nick’s neck, pulling him out of the corner and hitting the ropes. Aldis ducks under the lariat attempt from Eddie, who rebounds a second time - scintillating chop to the chest of the challenger! Edwards’ feet shoot out from under him as his chest stopped dead on the impact; made clear by a slow motion replay of the brutal strike. Eddie Edwards pops up into a seated position, as Nick Aldis pounces down, clamping on a headlock. Excalibur points out the grinding down of his challenger by champion Nick Aldis, while Sonnen notes that whenever Eddie uses his technical prowess he can gain the edge, but his crazed tendencies are proving to be a detriment. The champion momentarily releases his hold, just to drive a knee into the lower back of the challenger. Aldis applies a chinlock again, keeping his position of control on the situation. Eddie Edwards yells out in pain, as Alisha starts smacking on the mat. The crowd begins to clap along, trying to will the challenger to his feet. Aldis looks surprised, as Eddie Edwards starts to pull back. We can see Nick start to lose his grip a bit, as Edwards pulls himself over to one knee. Eddie uses his free left hand to send some shots into the midsection of the NWA Worlds champion. Aldis lets out a gasp for air as his lungs are forced empty with another left hand to the stomach! Nick Aldis falls back, pulling Edwards back up to his feet at the same time, still holding the top wrist lock on the challenger. Eddie Edwards looks for an out, ducking under the arm of Aldis and spinning backwards. Edwards dives towards the ground, using his head and left hand to handspring forward, twisting up his right arm, and tripping the legs out from under Nick Aldis! The challenger escapes the hold! Edwards goes for the lateral press! 1…2 No! Kick out from the champion!

    Both men rise back to their feet, but Eddie Edwards comes at Nick Aldis with the double leg takedown attempt. He gets it! Both men now on the ground in front guard, as Sonnen puts over the technique of the challenger. Both men are looking for an opening, as Edwards passes to half guard, and looks to grab at the head of the NWA Worlds Champion. Edwards is able to get a headlock applied, but Aldis looks to try to get to his feet. Aldis is able to get to his stomach and knees, trying to get back to a vertical base and avoid Eddie sinking the submission in any further. The champion is able to return to his feet, using his low center of gravity to drag Eddie Edwards towards the ropes. Aldis falls to his left, driving Edwards into the ropes as he still remains in the headlock. Referee Remsburg administers the count for a disqualification as the challenger refuses to break the hold. Nick Aldis answers his own way, deadlifting him for a back suplex - OVER THE ROPES AND ONTO THE APRON! Eddie Edwards hit HARD as the crowd rings out with Holy Shit chants. We see a slow motion replay, as the challenger landed directly on the edge of the apron, and while we go back to the live feed, we see Alisha Edwards trying to wake her husband up. A close up shot of Eddie Edwards is shown, as he gasps for air, clutching the small of his back. We fade to a shot of the NWA Worlds Championship, showing the prize that these two world class athletes are going to battle for. We hear the crowd boo heavily, as we fade back to a shot from ringside, where Nick Aldis is standing on the middle rope, taunting to the crowd. In the bottom of the shot, we see Edwards clawing, trying his best to get back to his feet. Remsburg gets to the count of 8, as Edwards still hasn’t been able to get back to his feet. Aldis leans on the ropes, looking down at Edwards and spitting on the challenger! Another chorus of disapproval from the fans in attendance, as all that seemed to do is piss off the fans and Alisha. Wait - Alisha is climbing into the ring?!

    Alisha Edwards gets into the ring, holding the kendo stick that the Edwards Clan lovingly refer to as Kenny. Aldis looks shocked for a second before starting to laugh at the prospect of fighting his opponent’s wife. Alisha begins to twirl the weapon all around her, clearly familiar with how to put it to use as members of the fans start a “She’s Hardcore!” chant. The chant quickly picks up steam, as both referee and champion look out to the fans shocked. The hard cam slowly pulls back, as we see the tiny frame of Alisha Edwards not backing down a step from the NWA Worlds Champion while the crowd comes alive. Remsburg quickly steps to Alisha, mentioning that she will get her husband disqualified if she strikes the champion. The camera angle changes, and suddenly we see Eddie Edwards climbing the top rope! Eddie soars through the air with a MISSILE DROPKICK! SIDESTEPPED! Aldis moved and instead Eddie blasted Bryce Remsburg directly into Alisha! Both referee and first lady of the Edwards Clan lay on the mat, clutching their heads. The challenger climbs back to his feet, realizing his error, as he looks down at his wife in terror. Eddie puts his head in his hands, quickly repeating the word No outloud over and over again. Edwards falls to his knees, trying to shake his wife awake after the accidental contact. The camera angle shifts to the rinside camera, looking up at Eddie trying to wake his wife, when suddenly we see Nick Aldis stand up in the corner of the shot, with a smirk on his face - AND THE NWA WORLDS TITLE IN HIS HANDS!

    “What is Nick Aldis going to do?!” Excalibur screams out in half curiosity half fear.

    “Whatever the hell he needs to do to get the job done! That’s why he’s the best in the world!” Sonnen responds in near glee at the chaos ensuing.

    Aldis measures, and Eddie Edwards starts to get back to his feet. Edwards turns around - TITLE SHOT - DUCKED! Eddie Edwards hits the ropes - BOSTON KNEE PARTY! Aldis tried to cover his face - ONLY LETTING EDWARDS DRIVE THE TITLE BELT INTO HIS HEAD! Eddie Edwards falls onto the champion in exhaustion, as the crowd counts out the fall for the fallen official Bryce Remsburg. “1! 2! 3! 4! 5! 6! 7! 8! 9! 10! 11” Edwards rolls off the champion, realizing that he needs to get the official back to his feet if he is going to be crowned the new champion. Edwards goes to grab Remsburg, shaking him as he tries to wake up the official and get this bout to the end that seems to be in sight. Remsburg clutches his head and stays on the mat, as we get a slow motion replay to see Alisha Edwards and Bryce’s head collided during the dropkick, with Sonnen mentioning the whiplash of the dropkick could have concussed our referee for this championship contest. As Edwards stands up, hands on the back of his head as he tries to catch his breath, we see Aldis behind him crawling on all fours. As the crowd chants for Eddie, the NWA Worlds Champion makes his presence felt again, landing an uppercut below the belt! Eddie Edwards goes down hard as everybody in this contest now lays down on the mat in agony. The camera slowly pans back as we see the fans on their feet chanting for Edwards. Nick Aldis uses the ropes, slowly getting back to his feet before walking over to the turnbuckle and picking up the Kendo Stick that Alisha dropped moments ago. Aldis catches his breath for a moment before starting to chuckle to himself, looking down at the signature weapon of the Edwards Clan.

    Aldis taunts to the crowd, spinning the Kendo Stick around him in a faux martial arts style, as Excalibur calls, “His best Steve Blackman impression.” Nick Aldis backs off into the corner and Aldis starts to measure up for Eddie Edwards. Edwards gets on all fours, as Aldis hauls off looking for his shot - But Alisha throws herself on top of Eddie! Alisha Edwards doing whatever she can to protect her husband from the weapon that she brought into the ring. The crowd chants “Ed-Wards! *clap clap* Ed-Wards! *clap clap*” getting behind the husband and wife as Aldis staggers back. Excalibur mentions that this exact situation happened at All In, with Brandi protecting her husband, and that this hesitation could come back to haunt Nick Aldis yet again. Alisha Edwards gets up to her feet, holding the back of her head as she stares down the NWA Champion. Aldis looks hesitant, telling her to leave - But Alisha spits in the face of Aldis! Nick Aldis looks furious, Alisha starts to talk trash, but Aldis cracks her upside the head with the Kendo Stick! Alisha hits the mat like a pile of bricks, while the crowd nearly sends Aldis deaf with boos. Nick Aldis stands over her, posing in a way reminiscent to The Sandman as he holds the weapon high above his head. The crowd starts to drown him in “You Sick Fuck! You Sick Fuck!” chants, while we see Eddie Edwards back to his feet, with his back to the center of the ring in the corner. The challenger turns back to the action in the ring, while we also see Bryce Remsburg begin to stir, sitting in the corner. Eddie Edwards looks at his opponent, standing over his unconscious wife, as the gears begin to turn in his head. Edwards starts to breathe heavy and shake as Aldis looks at Eddie Edwards with a look of amusement. Aldis holds the Kendo Stick and dares Edwards to come at him.

    Edwards obliges, rushing in! Kendo Stick swings for the fences, but Eddie ducks underneath! Edwards gets behind Aldis, getting a double leg takedown as the champion drops the weapon in the process. Edwards mounts the back, sending stiff punches to the back of the head of the champion! Edwards has become unglued, pounding away over and over as the crowd cheers him on. Eddie Edwards continues raining down the shots as Nick’s struggles grow weaker and weaker. The challenger begins sending 6-12 elbows to the back of the head of the champion, who goes limp on the ground after two strikes, but Eddie Edwards is refusing to stop! Strike after strike to the base of the neck and the back of the head, as Bryce Remsburg gets back to his feet, seeing the brutality in the ring. Remsburg demands that Edwards backs off, trying to get him off of him, but Eddie is seeing red! Edwards won’t stop this onslaught! Remsburg starts to count, threatening to disqualify Edwards! He gets to 4, before Edwards finally snaps out of it, backing off the now motionless champion! Remsburg gets down, checking on the NWA Worlds Champion, who doesn’t seem to be responding. Eddie Edwards moves in, grabbing Nick Aldis by the back of the neck - WAIT A MINUTE! SMALL PACKAGE! ALDIS MOVING SEEMINGLY OFF MUSCLE MEMORY! 1...2…3!!!


    Spoiler:

    NO!!! EDWARDS GETS THE SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST NANOSECOND! We see a slow motion replay, showing that Edwards JUST barely was able to kick out, as seemingly all members of the crowd, Chael Sonnen, and Nick Aldis himself believe that the match is over! Both men get back to their feet, and Edwards charges at Aldis! Aldis passes under a lariat, sending the challenger off the ropes again! Aldis drops down looking for a back drop, but Edwards floats over the top! Sunset Flip - Aldis rolls through to his feet! Aldis grabs the legs, falling on top of Edwards in another cover! 1...2… Kick out from Eddie Edwards! Edwards rolls backwards up to his feet, as Aldis remains on one knee from exhaustion. Eddie charges in - BOSTON KNEE PARTY! HE NAILED IT ON THE CHAMPION! COVER! 1...2…3?! YES!! HE DID IT!


    WINNER!

As we fade back to the ring, we see Alisha Edwards staggering as she helps her husband back to his feet. From the back, NWA President William Patrick Corgan makes his way down to the ring, grabbing the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship from the time keeper and entering the ring.

    Eddie and Corgan look at each other, Eddie unsure about what’s about to happen. Corgan extends a hand, and Edwards shakes it after a moment of hesitation. Corgan goes behind Edwards and straps the championship belt around the waist of the new champion before raising his hand high! Eddie Edwards has made it to the mountain top and has gotten a congratulations from the President himself! Alisha shakes Corgan’s hand as well and we fade out as the new Worlds Champion hugs his wife.

    Knox sends both teams to their corners, asking for their starting man on each side. For SoCal Uncensored, Kazarian begins in the ring, as Flip Gordon wants to take the lead for other other side. Cody allows it, backing off into the corner with The Green Arrow. Knox sees both men in and calls for the start of the match!

    [MATCH #3]
    Six Man Tag Match
    Referee: Rick Knox
    Time Limit: 30 Minutes
    Stephen Amell, Cody Rhodes, and Flip Gordon w/ Brandi Rhodes vs. SoCal Uncensored


    Flip Gordon and Kaz circle around each other in the ring, as the crowd duels with chants of “SCU!” “FLIP! FLIP! FLIP!” “SCU!” “FLIP! FLIP! FLIP!” Both men look to the crowd, with Flip nodding as Kazarian sneers at the crowd. Both men charge into each other and lock up. Each man jocks for position, trying to gain the advantage in this first moment. Flip Gordon ducks down, taking Kazarian over with a modified arm drag and across the ring! Kaz looks pissed off at being shown up, as Flip Gordon takes in the adulation of the crowd. Kazarian rushes in, but Gordon goes low with a leg sweep! Cover! 1.. Kick out from Frankie Kazarian, who gets back to his feet. He goes to sweep Flip, who counters with a standing handspring! Flip rushes forward, getting a running knee to the chin of his opponent! Frankie Kazarian stumbles back to his corner, clutching his face while Flip Gordon does a handstand, kicking his legs and dancing about as the crowd chants his name. Flip leaps back to his feet, while Christopher Daniels has hopped down and is asking if Frankie is okay, all while Frankie can’t break his gaze on his opponent. Kazarian holds his hands up and Scorpio Sky answers by making the tag. Flip Gordon points to his corner, as a small “AR-ROW! AR-ROW!” chant breaks out. Flip Gordon walks over and makes the tag to Stephen Amell!

    Scorpio Sky stares down with The Green Arrow, smirking a bit at the rookie in the ring before holding his hand up for a test of strength. Arrow looks out to the crowd, who tell him to go for it, and Amell starts nodding his head. He puts one hand up, and as soon as all fingers clasp, Sky drives a stiff kick to the stomach! Holding onto his hand, Sky throws a near judo styled throw, taking Amell to the ground! On all fours, Amell tries to get to his feet only to catch an elbow in the side of the head! Amell falls down to his stomach. Scorpio Sky wastes no time, jumping on top of him and striking away at Stephen Amell, who is desperately trying to cover himself up. Sky drags Amell up, standing behind him, before swiftly driving him back down to the mat with a back suplex! Amell lays on the ground, clutching at his back in agony as Scorpio stands over him, taunting. Sky grabs him by the scruff of the neck, taking him into the corner before shoving all of his weight into the stomach of Amell to trap him in! Sky holds his hand up, with Daniels now coming in and making the tag. Daniels gets into the ring, and taunts at the downed Hero, yelling about making All In look easy. Amell gets up to one knee, and Daniels dives in with a forearm to the face!

    Daniels bounces back to his feet while the crowd reacts in mostly boos. Daniels stomps away on the upper body of Stephen Amell, before walking out and taunting to the crowd. Daniels backs up, towards Amell’s corner, yet just out of reach of Amell’s partners. Christopher Daniels taunts at Stephen, telling him to come and crawl for the tag. As Amell reaches forward onto the mat, only for his hand to get stomped on by The Ring General! Daniels brings Amell into SCU’s corner, stomping away on his midsection. Daniels holds his hand up, tagging back in Kazarian. Kaz hooks both Arrow’s arms onto the top rope - Scintillating chop to the chest rings around the arena! As members of the fans woo, Kaz backs his opponent back up into the corner - Another chop, as welts already show on the chest of Stephen Amell. As Amell doubles over in agony, Frankie reaches over and tags out to Scorpio Sky. Sky pulls Amell to a vertical position, and lands a double overhand chop to the chest! Stephen Amell, reminiscent of Ric Flair, stumbles forward before collapsing to his face on the mat. Scorpio Sky walks forward, standing with one foot on the back of his head as he taunts out to the crowd, as the fans begin to chant for Cody to get in the ring! Scorpio grabs Amell up with a cravat, taking him once again into SoCal Uncensored’s corner. Tag out once again, bringing back in Christopher Daniels. Daniels lifts Amell to his feet, coming off the ropes and lands a double axe handle to the chest. Daniels walks over to Cody, flipping him the bird! Stephen Amell tries to get back to his feet, but Daniels grabs him in a front facelock. Daniels goes for a suplex, but Amell slips out the back! Amell wastes no time, diving forward and making the tag in to Cody! Cody Rhodes is now legal as the crowd cheers on one of their favorites.

    Cody springboards off the top rope, landing a missile dropkick into the chest of Daniels! Rhodes bounces to his feet, taking down Sky and Kazarian off the apron! Daniels staggers to his feet, clutching chest in pain. Rhodes takes him off the ropes going for the Irish Whip - countered by Daniels. Cody goes off the ropes, and Daniels ducks down - Rhodes drops down into an uppercut to the throat! Daniels backs off, when suddenly in runs Sky, landing a clothesline to Rhodes - dropping him! Flip Gordon gets into the ring to even things up, blocking a right from Sky, blocking a left - checked leg kick - jumping enziguiri to the head by Gordon! Kaz is up on the apron, but Flip rushes towards him and lands a dropkick to the midsection, sending Frankie Kazarian to the outside once again! Flip Gordon rebounds off the ropes - TOPE CON HILO! Flip lands on his feet, yelling out the crowd with pure adrenaline! Gordon turns around - RIGHT INTO A TOPE SUICIDA FROM SCORPIO SKY! Sky helps Kaz back up, and both men pounce on Flip on the outside. They lift him up, sending shots to the head from Kaz as Scorpio holds Flip’s arms behind his back. The crowd starts to come alive, and Kaz tells Sky to turn around in a panic - AS STEPHEN AMELL COMES CRASHING OFF THE TOP ROPE ONTO ALL THREE MEN! The crowd rings out in holy shit chants as we see slow motion replays of the huge dive. We go back to the ring, and Cody Rhodes is lifting Daniels onto the top rope, seemingly looking for a superplex… Daniels starts to fight out though! Cody falls back - CRASHING FROM THE MIDDLE ROPE! Cody, still relatively fresh, gets back to his knees clutching to small of his back. Daniels gets to the top rope before jumping - But Rhodes dashes out of the way! Daniels sees, landing on his feet - But Daniels goes down! Daniels collapses to the mat on an awkward landing, stumping forward and falling nearly face first into the turnbuckle. He falls to the ground, clutching his knee. Rhodes goes in to capitalize, but Knox backs him off. Daniels and Knox talk for a second, as Daniels is yelling out in pain, with curses strewn throughout. Knox calls for the ringside doctors to come in, but Daniels shoves at him. Daniels staggers to stand with the ropes, but he clearly can’t balance well. He stumbles forward with a wild right hand, easily ducked by Rhodes! Cody grabs him from behind - PERFECTLY SET UP! Rhodes hesitates for a moment before driving The Fallen Angel into the mat with a Cross Rhodes! Cody makes the cover, hooking the unhurt leg. 1...2...3!

    WINNERS!
    Spoiler:

    Cody Rhodes, Flip Gordon, and Stephen Amell (Pinfall w/ Cross Rhodes - 8:55).

    09:50

    FADE ON WINNING GRAPHIC - FADE OFF.

    Cody Rhodes opens the ropes, allowing his wife in the ring, as doctors rush to Daniels. Ring hands rush to get ice packs to all of the competitors. Flip helps the barely conscious Stephen Amell into the ring, as Rick Knox raises the hands of the winners in the ring. Doctors take Daniels away, helping him walk off to the back. Cody asks for a microphone as Flip and Amell stand on the middle rope taunting to the crowd. Rhodes gets the mic and waits for the crowd to quiet down.

    CODY RHODES. First things first… I’d like to say that I hope Christopher Daniels is okay, and you never want to have to have a match end like that. Assuming all is well, I would love a rematch to prove that it would be the same result either way!

    CROWD POP

    CODY RHODES. However, tonight is a historic night. The start of a new company, and a new revitalization of professional wrestling…

    CROWD POP. SOME “ALL ELITE! ALL ALL ELITE!” CHANTS.

    CODY RHODES. But… Tonight I get to make a very fun announcement. We are here to make a difference. We have talked for these past few months about looking to change the landscape of professional wrestling as the world knows it forever. All Elite Wrestling is going to make a difference in the wrestling world and we are here to stay! We are here to lead a Global Revolution and to CHANGE THE UNIVERSE! And to do that... We need to have someone seeing the revolution we are putting on aren’t we?

    CROWD POP.

    CODY RHODES. AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! I AM PROUD TO ANNOUNCE! THE REVOLUTION WILL! BE! TELEVISED!

    CROWD POP. ALL ELITE CHANTS RING OUT LOUD.

    Cody waits for the crowd to calm down, with a giant grin across his face.

    BLACK OUT

    *****

    The crowd gets loud with anticipation as the lights go black. We hear a commotion in the ring, but we can’t tell what is happening.

    LIGHTS UP

    OUTSIDE THE RING - AMELL, BRANDI, AND FLIP HAVE BEEN KNOCKED OUT

    Cody turns and finds himself face to face with -

    Spoiler:

    VILLAIN ENTERPRISES?!

    MARTY SCURLL, FLANKED BY PCO AND BRODY KING!

    The crowd breaks out in chants of “TOO SWEET! WOOP WOOP! TOO SWEET! WOOP WOOP!” Marty is in full entrance gear, with his mask, jacket and umbrella over his shoulder. Cody looks happy for a second to see Marty, but as he sees the people around him he grows concerned. Cody looks at Marty with an expression of fear and confusion. Marty Scurll slowly removes his mask with his left hand, showing a look purely barren of emotion. Marty seemingly has no remorse for what is in the ring.

    CODY RHODES. (Off Mic) WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! MARTY TALK TO ME! WHY ARE THEY WITH YOU? WHAT DID YOU

    CRACK!

    BRODY KING LANDS A BOOT TO THE HEAD!

    Cody Rhodes goes down like a sack of bricks! The crowd drowns the ring in boos, as Brody King lifts up Rhodes and feets him into PCO - MASSIVE CHOKESLAM FROM PCO! Cody Rhodes is sprawled out on the mat, as Marty Scurll calmly hands his umbrella on the top rope. Marty removes his coat, folding it and placing it on the mat. He places the mask on top of it before standing up, cracking his neck for a moment. Marty makes a hand motion into the air, but clearly Villain Enterprises know what it means, because they spring at Cody! They bring him up to his knees, with each man holding an arm to keep him in place. Scurll walks back to his umbrella, picking it up and holding it over his shoulder. The crowd begins to chant, “NO MARTY NO!” competing with chants of “NOT SWEET! WOOP WOOP!” Cody sputters and coughs, looking at Marty with strain in his eyes, as though he’s holding back tears. We hear one last question from Cody -

    CODY RHODES. Marty… Why?

    As though he didn’t even hear him, Marty brings his umbrella up. He touches each shoulder of Rhodes, as though he was knighting him before turning his back.

    MARTY SPINS AND CRACKS CODY WITH ALL HIS MIGHT!

    Rhodes collapses into the mat. The crowd boos and gasp at the brutality of that shot. Brody King and PCO stand on the middle turnbuckles, mean mugging the camera. Marty, however, seems unfazed by this whole event, slowly walking back to his jacket and mask. Scurll puts his jacket back on, as we get replays of the sick shot. A shot is shown from the ground up, showing Villain Enterprises standing over Rhodes, whose face has blood coming down from the stiff strike with the umbrella. Excalibur uncomfortably yells that we need to get out of here and get order restored, and sends it to the video package for our third championship contest of the night!

    FADE OUT.

    FADE IN.

    VIGNETTE - ALL ELITE WRESTLING TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS

    Highlights are shown of all three teams competing across Impact Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and PWG. We get a sit down styled interview with all three teams, where they are all asked questions from a male voice off screen. The first team we see sitting is The Rascalz.

    INTERVIEWER. Tell me. Why do you believe you will be the first All Elite Wrestling Tag Team Champions.

    Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz sit street clothes, with big smirks across their faces. As they answer, highlights are shown intercut within the footage of the interview.

    ZACHARY WENTZ. We have been making waves around the world, setting tag team wrestling on fire. PWG, Impact, Dragon Gate, we’re making towns and making names.

    DEZMOND XAVIER. When it comes to excitement and fast paced matches, there’s nobody better than us. Tonight we’re only getting two out of three of us, and even then we’re still the best two that are gonna be in that ring on Sunday.

    We hard cut to a shot of the Briscoe Brothers, looking uncomfortable with the formal structure of the interview.

    JAY BRISCOE. Why’re we gonna be the first champs? Are you fuckin’ stupid?

    We see highlights of The Briscoes in New Japan, with their hard hitting style.

    JAY BRISCOE. Dem Boyz been the baddest of the bad for the last two decades. Tag team wrestlers around the world are in two categories - The Briscoes, and second best.

    MARK BRISCOE. Ain’t nobody as bad as the two of us. Ain’t nobody as good together as us. Ain’t nobody got shit on The Briscoes.

    Hard cut now to KUSHIDA and Chris Sabin sitting there, with a translator for KUSHIDA. We see highlights of Sabin’s run in Impact, including his Motor City Machine Guns run. KUSHIDA’s NJPW run is shown, including his run as part of the Time Splitters.

    CHRIS SABIN. We’re going to be the tag team champions for one reason and one reason only; We are two of the best wrestlers in the world, with global experience. We have a common tag team partner in one of my best friends, Alex Shelley, and now, I’m proud to help KUSHIDA spearhead his name here in North America.

    KUSHIDA. (Spoken In Japanese, Translated Subtitles Provided) For years in Japan, I proved myself as the best Junior Heavyweight. I proved that KUSHIDA is a serious competitor, and someone to be taken seriously. America has always been a big dream of mine, and I hope to do my country proud.

    INTERVIEWER. With it being one fall to a finish, what makes you think that you can survive all the other men?

    Once again hard cut to The Rascalz, now intercutting seamlessly between shots of the men speaking and their competition in ring.

    ZACHARY WENTZ. When we get into the ring we light it up with excitement. We do things that tag teams haven’t even dreamt of, we’re making big waves in tag team wrestling, and we’re here to prove that we’re the best unit the world has.

    DEZMOND XAVIER. Time Machine are great when it comes to stamina. They can go, but they don’t have experience as a team. They don’t know each other like we do. And The Briscoes? What is this 2012? This is a whole new company, and at Double or Nothing we are going to make our names as the cornerstones for AEW’s tag team division.

    JAY BRISCOE. They wanna talk about what year is it?! How’s this for that shit: we been the best tag team since we go into this business two decades ago, and we’re still here because ain’t shit changed!

    MARK BRISCOE. Teams have beaten us, ain’t none of them known how to keep us down. Whether they like it or not, we keep coming and we keep fighting, and we keep kicking ass to get the gold and prove Dem Boys ain’t nothin’ to fuck with.

    CHRIS SABIN. We’re going to last because we don’t have a choice. We need to win this to prove that we belong here. Think about it. We’re debuting as a tag team, with nothing to lose. If we win, we immortalize ourselves as the first ever tag team champions and the undisputed best in the world today, and if we lose… Well we’re right back here then aren’t we?

    KUSHIDA. (Subtitled) We aren’t strangers. Alex Shelley has trained with us, both together and separately, helping us to adapt to each other’s fighting style. We need to win to prove that we belong as a team, as a bond that will last and that will prove the talent behind us.

    INTERVIEWER. And finally… What do you have to say to your doubters?

    The answers meld into each other, fading each response together as they all clearly have a similar thought pattern.

    ZACHARY WENTZ. Just kick up and watch, honestly. If you see the insanity that we put on in the ring and you don’t think that we deserve to be here… We’ll gladly keep stepping in there and proving people who say that wrong as we keep winning.

    MARK BRISCOE. We ain’t afraid to keep sending people to hospitals, kicking ass and takin’ names like we been doing for years!

    KUSHIDA. (Subtitled) I will fight with every last essence of my soul to make my fans proud, and to make non-believers take notice that KUSHIDA and Chris Sabin are the number one tag team...

    DEZMOND XAVIER. We will keep fighting, and we will not stop until we reach the mountain top…

    JAY BRISCOE. And if you don’t like it, we don’t give a damn!

    CHRIS SABIN. Because when all is said and done…

    Intercut to a six man shot, a solo camera on all six men across the screen as they speak in unison, with one voice overpowering it at a time to come through clearly. The background music crescendos as they each speak in time with the bang of the beat.

    ZACHARY WENTZ. We…

    MARK BRISCOE. Will...

    DEZMOND XAVIER. Become...

    KUSHIDA. (In English) The first ever...

    JAY BRISCOE. All Elite Wrestling...

    CHRIS SABIN. Tag Team...

    ALL. CHAMPIONS!

    FADE TO BLACK.
    10:05
    FADE IN.

    INT. MGM GRAND ARENA

    We see Justin Roberts standing in the ring, as referee Bryce Remsburg awaits in the corner next to him.

    JUSTIN ROBERTS. Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest, is a Three Way Dance tag team match, scheduled for ONE FALL to a finish -

    CROWD. ONE FALL!

    JUSTIN ROBERTS. With a 60 minute time limit, and is for, the All Elite Wrestling Tag Team Championships!

    CROWD POP

    FADE IN - “STRANGE MACHINES” BY THE GATHERING

    On the stage, out walk the duo of KUSHIDA and Chris Sabin - Time Machine! As they make their way to the ring, the commentary team runs down the accolades of both men, both singles and tag team, but Sonnen is fixated on the fact that they have never been regular partners together. Excalibur mentions them both extensively training with mutual tag team partner, Alex Shelley, claiming that they have been in the gym and working on making their offense and styles meld into a winning combination, but is unsure yet if that could overcome the experience of the Briscoes, and the high energy assault from The Rascalz.

    SONG FADE OUT

    FADE IN - “FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT” BY THE BEASTIE BOYS

    Down to the ring saunter the laid back but fast paced duo known as The Rascalz! Excalibur notes that the third to their trio, Trey Miguel, agreed to stay in the back as a sign of good faith, and to prove that they will win fair and square. The Rascalz make their way to the ring, chanting along with the chorus of their theme song, while Excalibur recounts their insane matches that took place in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. The two get into the ring and look at their first team in this championship contest.

    SONG FADE OUT

    FADE IN - “REACH FOR THE SKY” BY ADAM MASSACRE

    The lights go green as the camouflaged brothers from Delaware get to the stage. They taunt to the crowd, as they march to the ring wearing matching hoodies that say “#DEMBOYS” on the back. Sonnen runs down their tag team championship reigns in Ring of Honor, calling The Briscoes the measuring stick of modern tag team wrestling, and officially calling them as his pick to win. The brothers get into the ring, getting nose to nose with The Rascalz, who almost laugh in the faces of The Briscoes. Time Machine are talking to each other on the outside, likely going over their strategy.

    SONG FADE OUT

    Justin Roberts does the official introductions as referee Bryce Remsburg holds the AEW Tag Team Championship Belts high above his head. Remsburg hands the belt to a ring hand and brings The Briscoes and Time Machine to the center of the ring. Excalibur mentions that The Rascalz lost the coin toss and thus will be starting on the apron as a team - only two legal men at a time. Remsburg quickly goes over the rules and asks if anybody has any questions. Neither do, as The Briscoes begin to talk some trash to Sabin and KUSHIDA. Remsburg sends them to neutral corners, telling them to select their starting men. Chris Sabin and Zachary Wentz start in the ring as Bryce rings the bell.

    [MATCH #4]
    AEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
    Tag Team Three Way Dance
    Referee:Bryce Remsburg
    Time Limit: 60 Minutes
    Time Machine vs. The Briscoes vs. The Rascalz


    Both men step forward, locking up right off the bat. Wentz turns and pulls in a headlock into the Motor City Machine Gun! Sabin shifts his weight, pulling Zach Wentz back into the ropes and sending him off to escape! Sabin ducks a clothesline, now both men rebounding off the ropes - shoulder block from Sabin drops one half of The Rascalz! Sabin runs back off the ropes, and Wentz stays down. Sabin leaps over, hitting the ropes again, but Wentz is up this time! Zachary leap frogs over, and Chris Sabin runs through.

Both men nod to each other and each make the tag out to their respective partners! In come KUSHIDA and Dezmond Xavier!

    Both men circle each other, before KUSHIDA breaks the tension by running off the ropes - Only for Jay Briscoe to pull down the top rope! KUSHIDA goes soaring out of the ring and crashing to the floor! Dezmond walks over to check on his opponent, only to get jumped from behind by Mark Briscoe! Excalibur reminds the fans that the rules of tag team matches in All Elite Wrestling follows that of lucha libre, exiting the ring can count as a tag, so now Mark Briscoe replaces KUSHIDA as the legal man! Briscoe mounts Xavier on the ground, pounding away on the upper body of the young star. Mark Briscoe drags Dezmond by the ears, bringing him into The Briscoes’ corner. Mark shoves his hands into the face of Dez, obscuring his vision while he holds one hand up to make the tag in to Jay Briscoe! Mark holds the opponent back while Jay measures back, sending a stiff left jab to the ribs! Xavier doubles over, stumbling forward as he gets grabbed by Jay… And taken over with a vertical suplex! Briscoe floats over into a cover! 1...2… No! Xavier gets the shoulder up. Jay Briscoe turns, grabbing a hold of the head of Dezmond and putting him in a tight headlock.

    Briscoe wrenches away on the head, as Dezmond Xavier looks to try and get to his feet, to no avail. After a few moments, Xavier seems to start to fade, as the crowd cools down as well. Zachary Wentz walks over to the ring stairs, stomping down to start the crowd clapping again, inciting Dezmond to get up. Xavier feels the energy, starting to get to his knees as he gets a second wind of adrenaline. Xavier fights up to one knee as he sends a right hand into the stomach of Jay Briscoe. Dezmond Xavier sends another shot to the stomach as he gets to both feet now. Dezmond Xavier backs off into The Briscoes’ corner. Back elbow into the head of Mark Briscoe by Dez, allows some slight breathing room for The Rascal! Not long, however, as Jay Briscoe now rushes in, but Xavier gets a boot up just in time! Xavier pulls himself up to the middle rope, but Mark Briscoe leaps up to the apron on one knee, shoving Dezmond’s legs out from under him! Xavier crashes backwards, with his shoulders colliding with the top turnbuckle! Dezmond Xavier stumbles forward, possibly on dream street already! Jay Briscoe lifts him up onto his shoulders, as Mark makes the tag. Jay brings him to the center of the ring - Springboard Doomsday Device! They crashed into the mat hard, and Mark makes the cover! Jay Briscoe sends a stiff shot to Wentz sending him crashing! 1...2… No! Chris Sabin came in from the other side and made the save for Xavier after that brutal maneuver.

    Sonnen claims that it was smart by The Briscoes to protect Wentz from breaking up the pin, making Time Machine use their one save of the match.Sabin backs out of the ring as Remsburg reminds him he isn’t legal. Mark Briscoe pounces on Xavier again, sending right hands into the head! Jay is back in his corner, and Mark pulls Dezmond up into it. Tag made out once again. Both Briscoes get back into the ring, looking for a double back suplex to Xavier - Dezmond lands on his feet! Staggering back, Dezmond plants his feet and dives forward - rolling under a double clothesline attempt. Xavier knows he needs to get out of the ring unless he wants to lose at this moment, so he dives out and tags back in the third team, in comes Chris Sabin! Sabin springboards off the top rope, landing a missile dropkick with one foot per tag team member! Sabin gets back to his feet, Mark is the first Briscoe up! Sabin throws him over the ropes, but Briscoe manages to stay on the apron. Jay charges in, Sabin side steps, and Jay Briscoe puts on the brakes just before colliding with his brother! Chris Sabin wastes no time, throwing a superkick! Jay now the one to side step - superkick to the temple of Mark Briscoe!

    Jay takes his chance, diving down and taking out the planted foot of Chris Sabin with a chop block! Chris Sabin crumbles to the mat, clutching his left knee as the fans ring out with boos for The Briscoes once again slowing down the pace of the match. Jay holds onto the ropes, using it to give leverage to his stomps, as he softens up the upper body of Chris Sabin. Jay Briscoe backs off as referee Bryce Remsburg reaches the count of 4. Jay backs off, holding his hands up as he walks over to KUSHIDA. Briscoe points back at Sabin, on the ground and confused while in pain. Briscoe yells in KUSHIDA’s face, “Y’all ain’t shit! You hear me?!” Briscoe spits in the direction of KUSHIDA as the crowd boos. Sabin is back to his feet, limping, as Jay Briscoe lunges forward, driving another kick this time into the kneecap of Chris Sabin! Sabin writhes around on the ground, as Jay Briscoe takes his time, moving all around the body and driving stomps into the opponent. Briscoe motions for the end, as he lifts Sabin to his feet! Briscoe holds up his hands, mockingly shadow boxing around Chris Sabin. Sabin goes for a wild right, but Jay ducks. Sabin goes crashing down to the ground when he puts full weight on the left knee, and commentary contemplates whether he could be seriously injured or not. Briscoe wastes no time, lifting him up to his feet. Jay Briscoe picks him up and drives him hard into the mat with the Butterfly Piledriver - He nailed the Jay Driller into the mat! As he goes for the cover, Mark Briscoe gets into the ring to deal with The Rascalz! KUSHIDA can’t break it up - Sabin’s already used the team’s one save! 1… Mark decks Zachary Wentz! 2… NO! DEZMOND XAVIER OUT OF NOWHERE! We get an instant replay, and see that as Mark Briscoe charged in, Xavier springboarded over him and landed with a dropkick to break up the cover!

    The crowd is going wild in the ring, while Sonnen runs down some numbers; Time Machine and The Rascalz have both used their saves, so now if The Briscoes can put anybody down for a three count without a kick out, the match is theirs. The Briscoes have spent almost the entire match in the ring, keeping the pace slow, and it seems like both high flying teams may need to rally to get back into the contest. Chael finishes his statistic run down as Briscoe gets back up to his feet, clearly having his bell rung by that break up out of nowhere. Jay Briscoe lifts Sabin back to his feet, as all illegal members return to the apron. Briscoe lifts Sabin up, looking to hook him in for the Jay Driller once again. Sabin forces his weight down, not allowing the move. As Briscoe goes for one final heave, Chris leaps with him, using the momentum to flip up and over him! Sabin lands on his feet, but the forward momentum makes his bad knee give out. Chris Sabin falls towards reaches out, and makes the tag to Xavier! Dezmond Xavier springboards again, this time landing a flying clothesline to the head of Jay Briscoe! Briscoe gets back to his feet, as Xavier runs off the ropes, running dropkick sends Briscoe into the ropes, rebounds, into a monkey flip from Xavier! Dezmond Xavier gets up and lands a cartwheel - back handspring - FLUSH BACK FLIP KICK TO THE TOP OF THE HEAD OF JAY BRISCOE! Dezmond Xavier rushes to the top rope before twirling through the air - FINAL FLASH (Spiral Tap)! Xavier makes the cover, hooking both legs he’s gotta have it here! 1...2... NO! MARK BRISCOE MAKES THE SAVE!


    Zachary Wentz gets into the ring, now as Mark goes for a clothesline to Wentz - ducked! Wentz hits the ropes as Xavier hits a superkick to Mark! Briscoe stumbles, down to one knee as Zachary Wentz lands a shining wizard! Mark Briscoe rolls out of the ring, as now so has Jay Briscoe, now KUSHIDA gets into the ring! KUSHIDA ducks under the dropkick attempt from Zachary Wentz, landing a clothesline to Xavier that sends him stumbling back into the turnbuckle. KUSHIDA steps out as Wentz charges in again - Hip toss from KUSHIDA, cartwheel, dropkick to the chin! Wentz, though, not the legal man, as KUSHIDA turns right into a head kick from Xavier! Sabin now, staggers back into the ring! Xavier hauls off for a major superkick onto KUSHIDA, but Sabin shoves him out of the way - SABIN EATS THE KICK INSTEAD! Wentz back to his feet, checking his chin, as Xavier motions for Sabin who is down and out in the center! Wentz measures - Standing Moonsault - XAVIER PUSHES HIM MID AIR MAKING HIM LAND ON THE CHEST OF SABIN! Excalibur freaks out on commentary, calling The Move Sault one of the most innovative tag moves he’s seen! Sonnen reminds that Sabin isn’t legal, as once Wentz lands the moonsault, he has both arms down catching his breath. KUSHIDA charges in, kicking the arm out from under him! Wentz rolls to the outside, clutching his arm and screaming in pain! Xavier and KUSHIDA meet in the center, looking to trade shots - right from KUSHIDA blocked, checked kick from Dezmond, wild left from KUSHIDA ducked, backfist from Dezmond side stepped - KUSHIDA goes off the ropes - Xavier lifts him up, but KUSHIDA twirls all around the body of Dezmond Xavier in the center of the ring, grabbing onto an arm, and dragging him down to the mat! KUSHIDA HAS THE HOVERBOARD LOCK APPLIED! CENTER OF THE RING, KUSHIDA PULLS WITH ALL HIS MIGHT! XAVIER HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO SUBMIT!

Both members of Time Machine are handed their newly won championships, while they look at each other with a sense of pride and bewilderment - they actually did it! Sabin staggers up to his feet, with the help of KUSHIDA, as both men get their hands raised by referee Bryce Remsburg, using the other hand to hold their championships high. We fade out as KUSHIDA and Sabin leave, shaking hands with the crowd on the way out..

    VIGNETTE

    We see footage last year, as David Arquette appeared on talk show television to announce to America that he would be making his return to the active wrestling world. We see a sit down interview of David Arquette sitting in a suit and tie, he looks excited as he speaks.

    DAVID ARQUETTE. People… They really thought I was kidding. But… The decades of World Heavyweight Champion jokes… The talk that I killed one of the biggest promotions in the world… It gets to you, and eventually I started to get the itch to prove them wrong.

    Footage is shown of David Arquette appearing for small independent shows, doing a dive to the outside of the ring.

    DAVID ARQUETTE. I’m not afraid to prove myself. I really think I can do this.

    We see headlines of David Arquette vs. Nick Gage, as we see a black and white photo of David Arquette pouring blood from that war.

    DAVID ARQUETTE. I may be alone in saying this, but I truly think that I could be the world champion by the end of the year if I get the chances I deserve.

    We cut to shots of wrestlers from the AEW roster getting asked their opinion of David Arquette’s open challenge.

    JOEY RYAN. The dude's a great guy… But he has no chance. The caliber of athlete we are bringing to All Elite, there isn’t room for a guy who just decides he’s gonna come back and wanna be at the top.

    DAVID STARR. David Arquette? I’m not on the pay-per view card, yet David god damned Arquette is?! The guys’ lucky I already have a contract so I won’t be the one to come and put him in his place. He’s delusional.

    We go back to David Arquette. A female interviewer asks him a question -

    INTERVIEWER. Now, you said the chances you deserve, why do you deserve these chances?

    DAVID ARQUETTE. I don’t need this. I came back to wrestling to prove a point, but I don’t need this like most of the people around here. Because I’ve been in a WCW locker room, I think I know how things work around here. You’re a big star, you’ve got money, you get title shots. It’s that simple really.

    We go back to more roster members.

    CHUCK TAYLOR. Yeah Arquette kinda comes off like a jerk when he talks about his goals here.

    BERETTA. I was a big fan of the guy… “SHUT UUUPP” haha, y’know? But he’s… He’s kinda a dick in real life.

    DAVID ARQUETTE. People can talk all the trash they want, but I know I am a star, I know that I can do this, and I know that when I earn my contract in All Elite Wrestling… It’s just one step closer to the top.

    Arquette smiles to the camera, complete with the CGI teeth glint in the light, as we fade out.

    JUSTIN ROBERTS. Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!

    CROWD. ONE FALL!

    JUSTIN ROBERTS. It has a 30 minute time limit, with the winner receiving an All Elite Wrestling contract! Now, I have just been informed that a guest official has been put in charge of that match so please welcome… Official Nick Patrick!

    The crowd sits slightly confused, as from the back walks Nick Patrick, complete in old school refereeing gear, complete with polo and bow tie. Excalibur on commentary freaks out, pointing out that Nick Patrick was the senior official for WCW - David Arquette may have the fix in from the start! Nick Patrick gets into the ring, as some people start to boo, realizing what’s happening.

    FADE IN - “WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT” BY BIF NAKED

    The crowd starts to boo as David Arquette makes his way onto the stage, dressed in shimmering pink and baby blue gear. Arquette milks it for all its’ worth, standing on the stage as he motions for Red, White, and Blue pyrotechnics that go on in tune with his music. Sonnen proclaims that Arquette really looks big time, and let’s hope that he can back it up. Arquette gets into the ring, as this Invitational Open Challenge has not officially had an opponent announced. Arquette gets into the ring, demanding Nick Patrick checks him “in the spirit of fairness.” Patrick barely touches him, clearly not caring, as Arquette raises his hands and thanks Patrick for his diligent work. Excalibur is furious on commentary as David Arquette looks to further make a mockery of wrestling, all because he doesn’t depend on it to survive. Arquette gets into the corner, doing comically awkward stretches as he awaits his opponent.

    SONG FADE OUT.

    LIGHTS DOWN

    Not quite a blackout, but the lights greatly dim as the audience hush in anticipation. We see black boots walking on the video wall, as they make their way down a hallway. We start to pan up, and see that the legs are very slender. We see the person’s hands, and they’re nails are painted black - Excalibur yells out that he believes it’s a woman, confused about who could’ve answered this call. Just as we almost see the hair of the person, the cuts to black. Smoke starts to fill on the stage, as we hear a guitars fading onto the PA system. Soon, a wail emits from the speakers.

    FADE IN - “HIGHLANDER (THE ONE)” BY LOST HORIZON (Started at 10:25)



    As the guitars build back up, anticipation does as well when suddenly - The crowd erupts, as on the stage we see a figure walk out in a leather jacket, looking down to her feet. Fiery orange hair covers her face, as we can’t see who it is - but the audience seems to have caught on.

    EXCALIBUR. Ladies and gentlemen, pardon me I need to retract something from earlier, I said that I believed it to be a woman - I stand corrected as THE MAN HAS MADE HER ENTRANCE HERE AT DOUBLE OR NOTHING!

    Sure enough - the figure looks up and it’s -

    BECKY KNOX!

    The crowd comes unglued, chanting holy shit and Becky over and over, as The Man walks down the ramp with a smug smirk across her face. Knox gets to the ring, as David Arquette looks confused by this. Knox gets into the ring, stepping up to Arquette and going eye to eye with him. Arquette looks off put for a moment before beginning to laugh. Arquette backs off, as even Nick Patrick chuckles a bit, while Becky motions to the crowd, ignoring the disrespect from her opponent and official.

    SONG FADE OUT

    Knox removes her leather jacket, putting up her hands and demanding that Patrick starts the match. The crowd is ringing out in the arena chanting BECKY, while Arquette mocks them by doing the signature hand cupped to the ear, brother. Knox isn’t breaking her gaze from Arquette, clearly not shaken by his not taking her seriously. Patrick checks Knox for any foreign objects, before ringing the bell and starting the match!

    Arquette chuckles and steps into the center of the ring - RIGHT HAND FROM KNOX! BECKY ROCKS ARQUETTE EARLY! David Arquette staggers back, spaghetti legged as he definitely didn’t see that punch coming! Becky grabs him by his sequins gear, pulling him away from the ropes before taking him over with a Bexploder Suplex! Arquette arches his back in pain on the mat, as Becky steps on his hand, not letting him go anywhere. Arquette is laying on his stomach on the mat, one hand clutching his lower back, one hand under the boot of Becky Knox as he pleads to be let go! Knox looks to the crowd, with most chanting BECKY and a small group chanting, “BREAK HIS ARM!” Becky shrugs and obliges, applying her signature armbar which Excalibur yells in delight to see. “BECKYWARA ARMBAR IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! KNOX HAS THIS RIGHT HERE!” Becky tears and wrenches away on the arm, and in a mere 4 seconds, David Arquette quickly has had enough of that submission, tapping out and giving the win to Becky Knox!

    WINNER!

    Becky Knox gets back to her feet. She takes her leather jacket back from the ring hand, before putting it back on. She starts to leave, when she sees Arquette on his knees. She looks at him, and the crowd chants, “ONE MORE TIME!” Sonnen screams that this crowd is blood thirsty, and Becky shows mercy, not breaking Arquette’s other arm, instead landing a swift boot to the chin! Arquette goes down and out, as The Man has officially made her mark on All Elite Wrestling, and what does this mean for the future of the Women’s Division?!

    INT. BUILDING - DEEP IN THE BOILER ROOM

    We see Pentagon Zero sitting down in the depths of the building, contemplating the major match that he has tonight against New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada! Zero stands up, looking down at the ground for a second, noticing something on the floor. Pentagon reaches down, and picks up a loose Okada Dollar. Pentagon Zero stares at it for a moment before crumbling it in his hand. His head snaps towards the camera and we zoom in as he says, in a angry, dark tone. Subtitled translations appear on the screen as he speaks.

    PENTAGON ZERO. Okada… You walk into battle tonight with nothing you have ever seen before. I have no concern with beating you for the honor. I have no desire to prove myself with you. I have proved myself as one of the best in the world, and you will learn. Tonight there will be brutality, broken bones, and broken smiles. Tonight, Pentagon Zero will be the most destructive force you’ve ever fought. And tonight, you are the Rainmaker, and I am here to strike like lightning. I will not back down, and I will not be defeated. Because I AM! PENTAGON ZERO!

    The crowd can be hear chanting along with this final phrase.

    PENTAGON ZERO. Y CERO! MIEDOOO!

    He does his hand sign to the camera, as we get the graphic for their match, with a “Later Tonight” logo on the bottom right corner. Pentagon walks off.

    FADE IN - “JUDAS” BY FOZZY

    The lights quickly shift, as all the spotlights move to the stage. We see a dark figure standing in a hat and a long leather duster. He looks up as the beat drops in his music, and we see the face of Chris Jericho, covered in white and black face paint, as purple and blue fireworks erupts from the stage, in tune with the drums of the song. Chris Jericho slowly marches his way down the ramp while Chael Sonnen lists off the laundry list of accomplishments that Y2J has accumulated over his nearly 30 years in professional wrestling, including championships in WCW, WWE, and NJPW.

    EXCALIBUR. Chris Jericho has done nearly everything you can throughout a career, and now, he steps into All Elite Wrestling as the grizzled veteran who refuses to step off the mountain top. Can The Golden Star shine bright enough to surpass the man who considers himself the best in the world as what he does?

    SONG FADE OUT

    CHAEL SONNEN. Kota Ibushi is far and away one of the best all around wrestlers of this generation, but the fact is that these two have never seen each other in one on one competition. First time ever between these two, and you’ve gotta believe they have scouted each other’s signature moves and tendencies in preparation for this war!

    Roberts leaves the ring, as referee Brian Hebner brings both men to the center of the ring. He goes over the rules, asking if either man has any question. Neither man break eye contact, Jericho looking disgusted at Kota Ibushi, while Kota has a stoic look of determination. Hebner sends both men back to their corners before ringing the bell and making this match underway!

    Chris Jericho vs. Kota Ibushi


    Chris Jericho yells trash talk across the ring at Ibushi, who hasn’t yet moved. Jericho steps forward, daring Kota Ibushi to bring the fight. Kota takes a step forward, and Y2J spits in his face! The crowd let’s out an audible “OOOOHHHH!” as Ibushi’s head whipped to the side. Kota wipes his face, looking at his hand for a second - then pounces at Chris Jericho! Ibushi sends a flurry of open hand slaps to either side of Jericho’s face! Right leg kick! Left leg kick! Spinning sole butt to the stomach! Chris Jericho stumbles backwards, ducking out of the ring to try to catch his breath. Jericho pushes aside some ring hands, as he shoves the guardrail in frustration. We cut back to a wide shot of the ring to see Kota Ibushi sprinting diagonally across the squared circle - leaps over the turnbuckle just as Y2J turns around - GOLDEN TRIANGLE MOONSAULT EARLY IN THE MATCH! Both men crash to the ground in a heap, but Kota quickly gets back to his feet and plays to the crowd while replays are shown. Ibushi goes to pick Chris Jericho back to a vertical base, but Y2J grabs the head of Kota Ibushi, slamming it into the apron! Ibushi goes down hard, as Jericho takes a moment to catch his breath.

    Jericho rolls in and out of the ring, resetting the count out of instinct before returning to the outside and pulling on the guardrail. He pulls a part of it jutting out of the side before going back to the downed Ibushi. Jericho grabs him by the scruff of the neck, taking him the length of ringside and sending Ibushi crashing over the guardrail and into the crowd! The spotlights hit Ibushi as Y2J walks around the railing and to Ibushi. Chris Jericho lands soccer kicks to the back as Kota writhes around on the floor. Chris Jericho looks around, finding a table near the guardrail covered in security equipment by the time keeper. Jericho slaps everything off the table, pulling The Golden Star onto the top of the table with him. Y2J grabs the head of Ibushi, spiking him on the top of his head on the table! We get slow motion replays, showing Kota Ibushi standing flat on the top of his head during a freeze frame of that brutal DDT! Jericho shoves the limp body of Ibushi over the railing back to ringside, moving ring hands out of the way. Jericho shoves one to the ground, slapping another in the face as the crowd boos in response. Chris sends Kota Ibushi into the ring and makes a cover! 1…2. Kick out from Ibushi!

    The Alpha of professional wrestling gets to his knees, cradling the head of Kota Ibushi as he sends stiff right hands to the forehead! Hebner gives Jericho a verbal warning, telling him to open up his hands on his strikes. Jericho stops, calling the referee a stupid idiot before open hand slapping Ibushi in the face! The crowd voices their displeasure as Chris Jericho backs off and relaxes on the top rope. Kota Ibushi shakes his head, trying to gather his bearings as he just took some brutal shots to the face. Ibushi is on all fours, trying to get to his feet, as Chris Jericho rushes forward landing a field goal kick to the ribs. Ibushi backs himself into the corner on the ground, as Jericho stomps away on the chest and face of Kota Ibushi! Jericho stomps like a madman as Brian Hebner gives him the count to get out of the corner. Jericho backs off at 4, holding his hands up as though he’s done nothing wrong in his life. Kota tries using the ropes to get to his feet, but Jericho pulls him up to his feet. Delayed back suplex by Chris Jericho! The Alpha covers Ibushi with one foot while flexing and posing. 1… 2 Emphatic kick out from The Golden Star!

    Jericho slaps at the head of the seated Ibushi, but every slap seems to add some intensity to the eyes of Kota. Kota starts to be seemingly feeding off the shots he gets to the head. Ibushi stands up, beginning to shake as Chris Jericho continues to strike away, worry seeming to grow on his face. Ibushi lets out a battle cry as he sends a HARD leg kick - Checked by Jericho! Y2J leaps through the air landing an enziguiri to the back of the head of Ibushi! Kota Ibushi hits the mat like a sack of bricks! The crowd lets out their displeasure, as they try to cheer on their chosen favorite in Kota Ibushi. The fans in attendance begin to chant for Kota, who has gotten off to a very rough start in this contest. Chris Jericho lifts Ibushi, sending him into the corner. Y2J sends a scintillating chop to the chest, as Kota yells out in pain from the impact. Kota staggers forward, which gives Jericho the free time to run off the opposite corner - Forearm to the face from Chris Jericho! Kota Ibushi steps forward, knocked for a loop as he looks to regain his bearings. Jericho runs off the ropes again, this time behind Ibushi - Running bulldog! Y2J wastes no time, going off the ropes and landing The Lion Sault! What a combo! Jericho hooks both legs! 1...2… Kick out!

    Kota Ibushi is looking to catch his breath, as we see a shot from the ground, showing Chris Jericho standing tall over the beaten down Golden Star. Chris grabs Kota by the hair, putting his head between the legs of Jericho, trying to butterfly the arms - But Kota is fighting back! Ibushi is trying his best to keep his right arm free as his left arm has been trapped by Jericho. Y2J sends an open hand slap to the back of Kota Ibushi, causing him to arch his back out of instinct! Jericho sees his opening, grabbing the free arm of Kota Ibushi! Jericho pulls Ibushi into the air - But the momentum allows him to flip out and land on his feet behind Jericho! Backflip kick to the face, just as Chris Jericho turned around! Chris Jericho falls back, grabbing at his mouth to make sure all of his teeth are still in his head. Kota Ibushi sees his moment, grabbing Chris Jericho and taking him over his shoulder! Kota charges at the turnbuckle - LAWN DART! HEADFIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE GOES CHRIS JERICHO! Both men are down, as Kota Ibushi crawls under the ropes and onto the apron. Jericho is on the ground, trying to reach for the ropes to get a vertical base under him, but they’re just out of reach. The Golden Star makes his way to the top rope, facing away from the ring and looking at the sold out MGM Grand Arena! Ibushi soars through the air with a moonsault! But Jericho moves out of - IBUSHI LANDS ON HIS FEET! IBUSHI INSTANTLY LEAPS AGAIN, A STANDING CORKSCREW MOONSAULT CONNECTS WITH JERICHO! COVER! 1...2… NO! The Alpha of professional wrestling, Chris Jericho, was able to get out of that pinfall attempt!

    Kota Ibushi gets on his knees, catching his breath as Chris Jericho clutches his midsection. Jericho rolls to the ring apron, trying to get some separation for the moment between himself and the Golden Star. Ibushi walks over, stepping onto the middle rope! The crowd comes alive as they see what is about to be attempted - Ibushi clasping his hands around the waist of Chris Jericho! Jericho panics, noticing where he is right now. Jericho pulls as the hair of Ibushi, yanking down, as Kota lands on his feet on the apron as well! Chris Jericho lunges in for a punch - Roundhouse kick to the head by Kota Ibushi! Y2J falls between the ropes and into the ring, as Ibushi clutches his head in pain. Chris gets back to his feet in the ring, rubbing his face before noticing his chance. Kota walks stumbles towards the turnbuckle as Chris Jericho springboards - Triangle Dropkick! Kota Ibushi crashes into the mat on the outside as ring hands check on him on the floor. Chris Jericho follows to the outside of the ring, and looks to be grabbing something from underneath the ring. Excalibur reminds the fans of the Let Them Fight Rule, as Chris Jericho pulls out a… Steel chain?! Jericho wraps the chain around his fist, looking to deal some serious damage - Running charge from Jericho at Ibushi, who is leaning against the ring post. BRUTAL RIGHT HAND - DUCKED! THE CLANG OF METAL ON METAL RINGING AROUND THE ARENA!

    Jericho slides into the ring, gripping his wrist and hand while yelping out in pain. Ibushi gets onto the apron, waiting for Y2J to turn around. He does… SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK TO THE CHEST OF THE ALPHA! Kota Ibushi motions for the end, as he lifts Jericho to his feet. He places Jericho in position, looking for the Golden Star Powerbomb - HE HITS - NO! JERICHO SHOVES IBUSHI’S HANDS OFF, FALLING DOWN AND GRABBING KOTA’S HEAD! CODE BREAKER! OUT OF ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE! Cover! 1...2... 3!

He looks down at the unconscious Kota Ibushi, talking trash before paint brushing the face! Chris Jericho goes and grabs the legs of Kota Ibushi, the ring bell ringing constantly to try to call for some end to this violence. Jericho pays no mind, however, turning over and applying the Lion Tamer! The ring bell continues to ring out, as some ring hands decide to get into the ring, trying to stop this assault from continuing!

    The arena flashes with white and gold, as out from behind the curtain marches perhaps already one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of boots. Dollars fall from the sky, as in his full golden coat appears The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada! Okada walks down the ramp, with a look of smug determination. Excalibur goes over the fact that Okada has had a lot of trouble lately, losing at WrestleKingdom, losing the New Japan Cup, and that Okada needs to dig deep to find the Rainmaker of old, especially against Pentagon Zero! Justin Roberts does the introduction, as Okada removes his ring jacket, and ripping off breakaway pants to reveal the signature Okada trunks that he recently returned to. Okada is checked on by Hattori, as is Pentagon Zero. They stand in their corners as Hattori rings the bell!

    Time Limit: 30 Minutes
    Kazuchika Okada vs. Pentagon Zero


    Both men circle around each other, soaking in the atmosphere as the arena is deafening with dueling chants for both competitors. Chants of “Cero Miedo! OKADA!” ring through the arena as both men look at each other waiting for the opponent to jump. Both men lunge towards each other, getting the collar and elbow tie up. Each competitor jock for position, trying to find an opening in the other. Okada’s height advantage lets him get the leverage, using his power to back Pentagon into the ropes. Hattori gets to the count of 3, and Okada backs off. He pats at the chest of Pentaton Zero with a smug smirk across his face. Zero responds by looking around and hushing the audience. The crowd goes silent with anticipation. Zero holds up his hand yelling out “CERO!” as the crowd chants along. As he yells “MIEDO!” Pentagon shoves his hand into the face of the Rainmaker! Okada gets frustrated by this, shoving Pentagon into the chest. Pentagon Zero rebounds off the ropes, landing a shoulder charge that takes Okada to the ground! Pentagon Zero hits the ropes again, as Kazuchika Okada ducks under. Pentagon rebounds again, this time with Okada leapfrogging over the luchador. Okada leaps into the air with the best dropkick in the business! But Pentagon held onto the ropes, avoiding running into the attack. Okada charges in at Pentagon, who drops the top rope. The Rainmaker spills to the floor on the outside, which gives Pentagon Zero the chance to run off the ropes - Tope Con Hilo to the outside takes The Rainmaker and Pentagon Zero to the ground!


    Pentagon steps up onto the guardrail, yelling into the fans in attendance. The fans cheer back in kind, as Pentagon looks back to go to Okada. Pentagon grabs Okada by the back of the head, but Okada ducks his shoulder down and rushing, driving Pentagon’s spine into the ring post! Pentagon doubles over, arching his back in pain. Pentagon Zero stumbles over to the guardrail, as Okada backs off to get a running start. Rush in by the Rainmaker, big boot sends Zero over the top rope and into the AEW faithful! Okada once again backs up, getting a full start as Pentagon Zero gets his wits about him in the front row. Kazuchika Okada takes off in a full sprint, leaping over the guardrail and crashes body to body with Pentagon Zero! Both men clatter to the ground in a clump of mass, as the crowd goes wild. Roaming cameras rush to get a view as we get a cameraman right in front of the action. As both competitors catch their breath from each of their high risk dives. Okada gets back to his feet first, yelling out to the fans who roar back in response. Okada turns around - AS PENTAGON THROWS A CHAIR INTO HIS FACE! Pentagon Zero took a seat from a fan in the front row and just beaned it into the dome piece of one of the best in the world! Okada staggers back to the guardrail, knocked woozy from the impact. He stumbles back to ringside and makes his way to the guardrail as Tiger Hattori reaches the count of 12. Pentagon Zero walks back as well, flattening Okada against the ring post as he measures up - Overhand chop to the chest from Pentagon Zero! Echoing around the arena like a shotgun, Okada falls to his knees from the devastating strike. Pentagon Zero rolls Okada back into the ring, presumably to continue the onslaught.

    Pentagon gets back into the ring with Okada, who still may be unsure of his surroundings at the moment, as Zero goes behind and drives his opponent into the mat with a back suplex! Okada arches his back in pain, going to all fours in pain. Pentagon Zero backs off, measuring his shot as he lands a stiff penalty kick to the left arm of Kazuchika Okada! Okada writhes in pain on the mat as Pentagon Zero already seems to be both aiming in for Okada’s biggest weapon while possibly thinking about adding The Rainmaker to his collection of broken bones. Okada stands up on the corner, clutching his elbow in pain. Pentagon Zero steps forward, paint brushing at the face of his opponent. Pentagon Zero backs off, talking trash to the crowd in Spanish as Okada steps forward with a big right boot to the chin! Okada shakes out his left arm, trying to get feeling back, as he lands a chop to the chest of Pentagon Zero with his good arm! The crowd woo’s in response, as Okada pounces on his moment, snapping Zero down into a seated position with a snapmare. The Rainmaker rebounds off the ropes and slides into a dropkick right under the chin of Pentagon Zero! Okada now starting to get into his groove as he makes the cover! 1… No! Zero able to kick out before the count of 2, and Okada wastes no time applying the chin lock to grind away on his opponent.

    Pentagon Zero gasps for air on the mat, looking to break the finger grasps of Okada. Sonnen on commentary talks about Okada’s training to maintain wrist control strengthening his grip and making the already dangerous grappling ability of The Rainmaker into a deadly weapon that can become a submission at any time. As he says this, Pentagon swings his legs over, rolling backwards onto his feet as he Okada’s grip is still applied for the moment, forcing both men to bridge their back to stay standing, facing opposite directions. Okada wrenches back, pulling the chin of his opponent over Okada’s own shoulder, damn near pulling Zero’s head off his shoulder. Pentagon Zero sends an elbow into the small of the back! A second one and Okada has to release the grip as both men stagger forward to the ropes. Pentagon Zero rushes in, but Okada ducks and takes his opponent over to the apron! Zero lands a right hand to the face, sending Kazuchika Okada into the center of the ring as Zero already begins his ascent up the turnbuckle! MISSILE DROPKICK FROM PENTAGON ZERO! Both men fall to the mat as they both attempt to catch their breath!

    As Pentagon Zero is able to use the ropes to get back up to his feet, while Okada finds himself seated in the corner. Pentagon Zero yells out to the crowd, before charging in for a basement dropkick - but Okada moved last second! Kazuchika Okada makes his way to the opposite corner, looking for a bit of separation as Pentagon Zero picks back up steam. Pentagon Zero rushes into the corner once more, this time Okada gets his boot up! Right into the chin of Pentagon Zero! Zero stumbles back to the center of the ring, as Okada gets a waistlock! Slowly, as Pentagon tries to battle out of it to no avail, Okada deadlifts his opponent above his head and hard into the mat with the German Suplex! Pentagon falls back into the corner, using the ropes to stand up as his knees are weak after the high elevation drop. Okada gets back to his feet, wiping at his face as he sends a knife edged chop to the chest! Okada wastes no time, as soon as he lands the strike he deadlifts Pentagon Zero up to the top rope in a seated position. Kazuchika Okada leaps into the air and lands a dropkick! Pentagon Zero goes crashing off the apron and to the floor below as the crowd comes alive for the best dropkick in wrestling today.

    Pentagon on the outside uses the ring stairs to get to his feet, as Okada comes to the outside on the opposite end of the ring. As The Rainmaker makes his way across the ring and to the other competitor, the crowd begins dueling chants, with it seemingly split right down the middle in support for both gladiators. Okada grabs Pentagon Zero by the mask, but AN OVERHAND CHOP! Echoing through the rafters of the building as Chael Sonnen nearly blows a gasket over the shot from Pentagon. Okada, seemingly not prepared for another shot of defiance from his opponent, quickly goes back into the ring as it seems The Rainmaker is conceding to defense. Pentagon Zero starts to get into the ring, but as he climbs through the ropes, Okada lands a swift kick up to the middle rope that lands below the belt for Pentagon! Excalibur and Sonnen are shocked, as Tiger Hattori gives a verbal warning to Okada.

    EXCALIBUR. And, very much not like Okada, The Rainmaker took a shortcut right there!


    CHAEL SONNEN. The Rainmaker has not been himself for a long time, is he resorting to this because he doesn’t think he can get the job done anymore?

    Pentagon Zero lays on the mat, clutching his midsection in pain as Okada wipes off his brow and catches his breath in the center of the ring. That signature smug smirk of The Rainmaker gets zoomed in on, as all we see is Okada shrug and do his signature - RAINMAKER POSE! The camera crash zooms out, as Okada calls on the fans in attendance to prepare for the end. Kazuchika Okada lifts Pentagon Zero up by his waistband, grabbing the straightjacket clutch. Okada pushes the back of Pentagon as he holds the wrist - RAIN MAKE - NO! OVERHAND CHOP BY PENTAGON! Okada falls to one knee in shock, maintaining wrist control. Pentagon lands a right hand to the head of Okada! A second one! Pentagon slumps Okada to both knees, but he won’t let go of the wrist of his opponent! Pentagon Zero pulls his arm back, and as Okada lurches forward - KNEE TO THE CHIN! Kazuchika Okada goes down like a sack of potatoes, with his limbs doing limp! Pentagon Zero doubles to one knee himself, still feeling the effects of the rope assisted cheapshot. He lifts Kazuchika Okada to his feet, hooking the arm underneath Okada’s legs as he looks for the Pentagon Driver in the center of the ring! Okada is fighting it though, both men trying to overpower the other in this situation. Pentagon Zero musters up the strength, deadlifting Okada into the air slowly, but Okada wiggles an arm free! He rolls through into a victory roll cover for Okada! 1...2… NO! Pentagon Zero able to fight his way out at the last second!

    Both men race to get to their feet, as Pentagon Zero sends a big boot to the face of Okada! Kazuchika Okada staggers backwards, before coming forward and landing a forearm to the head! Pentagon Zero responds with a forearm of his own! Forearm from Okada! Forearm from Pentagon Zero! Okada steps forward, landing a forearm that drops Pentagon to his back - But he gets right back to his feet right away! Pentagon Zero slaps at his own face, daring Okada to hit him again! Okada looks confused for a moment then frustrated, stepping in and planting a forearm right to the chin! Zero falls to one knee, stands back to his feet, and lands a superkick on the button! Both men fall to their back, as the crowd gives an ovation for both men. Hattori begins to count both men as they look to get back to their feet. At the count of four and both men are stirring, as Okada reaches to try and get the ropes while Pentagon Zero looks to gain a base below him. At 6, Okada is able to use the middle rope to climb back to a standing position while Pentagon pushes off the ground to stand on his own power at a 7. Pentagon Zero walks towards Okada, landing a toe kick to the gut to double over The Rainmaker. Pentagon pulls him in, looking to butterfly the arms as he tries to get that Fear Factor (Package Piledriver) and end the match at this point. We hear the announcement that 20 minutes have elapsed out of the 60 minute time limit, as Okada hooks onto the legs of his opponent, avoiding the lift for the move. Okada, in one swift motion, lifts Pentagon up to his shoulders! Kazuchika Okada traps the head of Pentagon - DEEP IN DEBT (Air Raid Neckbreaker) in the middle of the ring! Cover! 1....2… Kick out again as Pentagon Zero refuses to say die!

    CHAEL SONNEN. The heart of both men, putting it all on the line as they aren’t even competing for a championship!

    EXCALIBUR. Chael, they may not be fighting for a championship, but they’re still competing for that Victory Bonus, they’re competing for the performance of the night bonus, they’re competing to get a leg up in the theoretical rankings as they look to All Elite Wrestling’s future! Tonight could be make or break for either man in terms of AEW competition.

    Kazuchika Okada wastes no time, as soon as Pentagon kicks out he lifts the luchador to his feet. Pentagon Zero, in a rush of adrenaline, shoves Okada into the ropes, looking for an Irish Whip. Countered by Okada, sending Pentagon into the ropes now - STANDING DROPKICK FROM OKADA! Okada gets to his knees, looking down before leaping into the RAINMAKER POSE! Kazuchika Okada gets behind Pentagon Zero as he begins to get back to his feet. Okada hooks the arms, but Pentagon Zero drops to all fours, crawling back between the legs of Okada!

Okada steps his leg back over his own arm, still holding the wrist and pulling in Pentagon Zero back into a rear waistlock - GERMAN SUPLEX! BRIDGING COVER! 1...2… NO! BUT OKADA MAINTAINS CONTROL! The Rainmaker rolls through, as the crowd begins to rally with “CERO MIEDO!” chants.

    Okada pulls himself and his opponent back to a vertical base, looking to hit his devastating finishing move - But Pentagon Zero leaps to the ground, gaining separation with an armdrag. Okada maintain’s wrist control, however, still holding onto Pentagon’s wrist as Pentagon stands over The Rainmaker on the ground. Zero stomps down on the arm of Okada, who yelps out in pain and is forced to release his grip on the wrist! Pentagon Zero, however, doesn’t lift his boot, holding down the arm of Kazuchika Okada and continuing to apply pressure as the cries of pain grow louder and more frantic from Okada. The crowd comes alive as they realize the position Okada has already known he was afraid of - Pentagon Zero hooks the arm behind Okada’s back, reaching for the right arm! Pentagon Zero wants to add the golden arm of The Rainmaker to his trophy collection! Kazuchika Okada doing all that he can to keep his right arm in front of him, trying to avoid getting it caught up in the grasps of his opponent. Pentagon Zero slaps on the midsection of The Rainmaker, trying to get him to open his defenses. The two men struggle, battle to get the better of each other.

    Okada crawls, looking to reach his foot on the bottom rope as the onslaught of Pentagon Zero just grows faster and more measured to the critical pressure points on the midsection. Pentagon slaps at Okada, landing a shot to the stomach as Zero gets a hold of the arm! PENTAGON ZERO HOLDS THE POWER OF THE RAINMAKER IN HIS HANDS! OKADA HAS SNAPPED BASEBALL BATS WITH THAT ARM AND IT MAY MEET THE SAME FATE - OKADA’S IN THE ROPES! Hattori frantically calling for Pentagon Zero to make the break, which Excalibur notes is uncharacteristic of the typically laid back official; he must know the serious damage that may happen if he lays off. Hattori begins the count rapidly, as the crowd boos the denial of seeing the arm snapped. Pentagon gets back to his feet, back off as Okada uses the ropes to do the same. Okada looks in frustration at Pentagon Zero, clutching his right arm and trying to shake feeling into the other. Pentagon Zero yells at him in Spanish before flipping the bird to Okada! Pentagon Zero runs off the ropes behind him, and Okada follows in - back elbow by Okada ducked as Pentagon rebounds again, lariat ducked now as Pentagon Zero again hits the ropes gaining steam! Kazuchika Okada turns around - Sling Blade! A move synonymous with Okada’s greatest rival has chopped him to a horizontal state!

    Pentagon Zero grabs Okada, looking again to hook him into the Fear Factor. Okada drops to one knee, with a double leg takedown to Pentagon Zero, looking to press on with a cover! 1… 2… Kick out from Pentagon Zero! As he kicks out, Zero rolls through to a position where Okada has him set up for the Fear Factor! Okada looking to take a page from Pentagon - who crawls between his legs! As he does this, Okada turns around and grabs him from behind! The Rainmaker struggles, deadlifting Pentagon Zero off the mat and into the air. Pentagon Zero struggles, as Okada’s breath leaves him, dropping Pentagon Zero in a moment of exhaustion. Zero shoves Okada back who rebounds off the ropes - SUPERKICK! Okada is out on his feet!

    FADE IN - “THE PEOPLES CHAMP” BY R.A. THE RUGGED MAN


    We see black and white footage of Hangman Page competing for New Japan Pro-Wrestling, as well as footage of PAC appearing for Rev-Pro. The highlights of their offense synchronize with the beat to the music as the lyrics play -

    “PUT YOUR HANDS UP, TELL ‘EM WILD OUT
    THIS IS HOW WE DO IT, WE HERE TO TURN IT OUT
    PUT YOUR HANDS UP, TELL ‘EM WILD OUT
    THIS IS HOW WE DO IT, WE HERE TO TURN IT OUT”

    Hangman Page training in the gym is shown, as overlays are shown of news articles online about the announced main event of Double or Nothing being himself against PAC. Videos are shown of Hangman going to the gym daily before the event, with a few moments displayed from his instagram that show the progress to his physique. We see a shot of Page sitting down with Conrad Thompson at last month, and the music fades down as they speak.

    CONRAD THOMPSON. Well, Hangman, in just a few weeks, you have the biggest match in your career so far, as you attempt to become a world champion for the first time. What do you have to say to those that still doubt you?

    HANGMAN PAGE. I have spent my entire career proving that I deserve what I get in professional wrestling. I was a young boy for The Decade in Ring of Honor, getting slapped around and humiliated on television until I earned my rank. I was considered a “forgettable” member of The Bullet Club at first, until I proved them wrong and showed what I can really do. My entire career has been people thinking I don’t deserve what I have until I step into the ring and prove them wrong. I’m not afraid to do it again at Double or Nothing.

    The music cuts back in as Hangman’s training and sparring is shown for the match.

    “I GET IT DONE FOR THE (PEOPLE, PEOPLE)
    I’M THE CHAMP, I’M THE CHAMP OF THE (PEOPLE, PEOPLE)”

    Hangman practices his Buck Shot Lariat on a sparring partner, as well as running long distances with weight on his back.

    “I BRING HOME THE TITLE TO THE (PEOPLE, PEOPLE)
    I’M THE MOTHERFUCKING CHAMP OF THE (PEOPLE, PEOPLE)”

    We see Hangman appearing at multiple independent shows, doing meet and greets with people, as a montage of fan photos from social media are shown.

    “I’m the motherfucking champ of the (people, people)”

    RECORD SCRATCH

    We see black and white footage of PAC walking up to Hangman at the first AEW fan rally, staring him down while holding his Open The Dream Gate Championship over his shoulder. We cut to PAC talking on a sofa with Cultaholic’s YouTube Channel getting a thank you for the footage.

    INTERVIEWER. Now, soon you’ve got a match with All Elite Wrestling, and I’m told you wanted to respond to some comments made by your opponent in the main event to crown the world champion, one Hangman Page. Is this correct?

    PAC has a look of disgust before turning his attention directly to the camera, holding his championship belt in a tight grip now.

    PAC. Aye. I would love… To respond to Hangman. I would have loved to sooner, but while he is in the gym practising, I am out in the world DOING! I am out wrestling in Dragon Gate to remain the champion, I am wrestling in Rev-Pro to show the UK scene what they’ve been missing since the BASTARD has been gone! Hangman wants to make this a cinderella story, that’s fine by me. I’ve had people for years that try to tell me that they were better than me, when they couldn’t hack it themselves. It happened in NXT, it happened in WWE, it happened across the globe, and now apparently become my job to give the world a reality check. PAC is the best god d*mned fighter on the planet, regardless of weight class. I am faster than you, Hangman... I will hit you harder, Hangman... I will break you, do you understand me, Adam? This isn’t going to be pretty, just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    The music cuts back in, this time showing footage of PAC’s in ring ability, with footage courtesy of Dragon Gate and Rev-Pro.

    “I GET IT DONE FOR THE (PEOPLE, PEOPLE)
    I’M THE CHAMP, I’M THE CHAMP OF THE (PEOPLE, PEOPLE)”

    We see PAC landing a shooting star press to the back of the standing Kzy. PAC’s vicious lariat to Skywalker is highlighted. Then we see him walking around the ring at Rev-Pro as the crowd passionately chants, “PAC IS COMING HOME!”

    “I BRING HOME THE TITLE TO THE (PEOPLE, PEOPLE)
    I’M THE MOTHERFUCKING CHAMP OF THE (PEOPLE, PEOPLE)”

    PAC is shown winning is Open The Dream Gate Championship, and shown running around in R.E.D. in Dragon Gate causing havoc. As the song says the word people, it flashes to images of the group together as a unit.

    “I’m the motherfucking champ of the (people, people)”

    We see both men at the Double or Nothing Press Conference, as they spoke about their match.

    PRESS. Hangman, how do you feel that PAC claims you want to be seen as a Cinderella story?

    HANGMAN PAGE. *chuckles* I haven’t asked anyone to view me anything other than who I am and what I represent. If that’s what people call me -

    PAC. If the shoe fits, princess.

    Hangman looks annoyed as security quickly moves to get between the two. PAC stands up, however, holding his microphone. He walks around the table, away from Hangman, so security hangs back. PAC sits on the edge of the stage and points to a female reporter.

    PAC. You. Ask me a question. Don’t make it stupid.

    REPORTER. *clearly caught off guard* Uhh - okay.. Um. *clears throat* With all the unprofessionalism that you’ve become known to show, PAC, including appearing to events such as these where there are dress codes in place, in full gear, as well as blatant disrespect for authority and officials -

    PAC. See, let me stop you right there. I have no problem with rules in place, or people who attempt to enforce them... Once somebody has proven to me that they apply to me. I am the greatest wrestler walking the face of this earth right now, and don’t think I have any hesitation in my voice when I say it. The rules do not apply to the top 1 percent, and my talent is even more elite than that. When I find somebody who can give me a run for my money, and somebody to step up to the KING without bending a knee, either by choice or force, I will give a damn about the rules do you understand me?

    PAC goes to point to another official when Page speaks up again.

    HANGMAN PAGE. Hey, I know you wanna feel important, but how about getting back to your seat like a big boy.

    PAC springs to his feet, starting to laugh as security gets between both men. The music starts to fade back in as PAC brings the mic up to his mouth.

    “PUT YOUR HANDS UP, TELL ‘EM WILD OUT!”

    PAC. I’M READY FOR A FIGHT RIGHT NOW, BIG BOY, YOU WANT TO DO THIS EARLY?!

    Hangman jumps to his feet, yelling for PAC to step up, but PAC backs off laughing. The music fades down again.

    PAC. That’s where you’re wrong, Adam. We’re going to do this at Double or Nothing. It serves me no purpose to fight you here. You make sure you train real hard, eat your vitamins, and say your prayers, okay? Because while you’re practising to be a world champion, I’m out here DOING IT! And I will earn the championship, the money, and the glory at Double or Nothing like I always do!

    Hangman Page jumps at PAC, who goes behind the curtains and backstage! Security holds him back, as host Conrad Thompson tries to talk him down. We fade out to a graphic for the match -

    HANGMAN PAGE vs. PAC


    FADE OUT.

    11:35
    FADE IN.

    INT. - MGM GRAND ARENA

    We hear Excalibur and Chael Sonnen talk about what this next match, our main event, truly means for the future of All Elite Wrestling, as one mistake by either competitor can change the course of history forever! Justin Roberts stands in the ring, beside Senior Official Brian Hebner. We hear Gwen Stefani’s singing play over the speaker as the crowd comes to a hush and the lights black out.

    “Here to stay…
    Even when I’m gone...
    When I close my eyes…
    Through the passage of time…

    Kings Never Die.”

    FADE IN - “KINGS NEVER DIE” BY EMINEM



    The stage goes to a single spotlight, as pyro erupts in a flash of white light all around the figure standing on the stage. As the smoke settles, a single spotlight shines down on one half of our main event. PAC stands, washed out in the light as his gear shimmers in gold and white trim. His Open The Dream Gate Championship draped over his shoulder, we see him talk his time, with a slow stroll on the way to the ring. PAC stops a few times, staring down with fans in the crowd who are wearing Hangman shirts. PAC gets into the ring, sitting down in his corner as he awaits the arrival of his opponent.


    SONG FADE OUT.

    FADE IN - “GHOST TOWN TRIUMPH” BY VINCENT PEDULLA



    The stage turns shots of gold and blue, as out marches Hangman Page, to a large ovation from the crowd. On either sides, the seconds of Hangman tonight, The Young Bucks. They pep talk Hangman, who remains stoic behind the mask covering his mouth. The trio make their way down the ramp, and they pep talk on the outside. As they await Page getting in the ring, they send it to the tale of the tape for the main event -

    In the ring, Justin Roberts does the official introductions for the main event, listing that there will be a 60 minute time limit, one fall to a finish, and that the referee in charge of the action is Senior Official Brian Hebner. Hebner showcases the championship belt high above his head for all in the arena to see what both these world class talents will be battling for. Hebner brings both men into the center of the ring, asking if either man has any questions about the rules. He offers either man to shake hands if they wish. Page holds his hand out, and after a moment of thinking, PAC reaches out as well - pulling up and flipping the bird in the face of Hangman Page! Page looks pissed for a moment but breathes and cools off as the crowd boos, PAC going back to his corner laughing maniacally. Hebner backs off and rings the bell, officially sending this contest under way!


    [MATCH #9 - MAIN EVENT]
    AEW CHAMPIONSHIP
    Singles Match
    Referee:Brian Hebner
    Time Limit: 60 Minutes
    PAC vs. Hangman Page w/ The Young Bucks


    PAC chuckles to himself, as Page looks all business. Both men circle around each other for a moment, before both go in for the lock up! Collar and elbow tie up, as both men jockey for position in the center of the ring. PAC swiftly ducks around the arms of Page, getting him in a headlock! Takeover by PAC, sending Page to the mat! PAC releases immediately, however, using his hands to spring to his feet, and pantamime kicking dirt back onto the now prone Hangman Page. Page quickly gets to a knee, as PAC laughs, walking back into the corner, daring Page to bring the fight. Page is back up, and both men circle again, locking horns for a second time now! PAC can’t get the leverage, as Hangman powers him back into the corner! Hebner gets to a count of 3 as Page’s corner starts yelling out strategies. Page lets his arms off PAC, who is yelling for a break. Page backs off a step, and as PAC looks to turn back he catches a stiff slap right across the face! The crowd pops, as Page backs off, daring PAC to bring the heat!


    PAC checks his chin, and quickly starts to breathe heavily, shaking with rage. PAC rushes at Hangman, who goes for a clothesline - ducked! PAC off the ropes, back elbow by Hangman ducked as well, rebounding off the opposite side again - Double dropkick to the chest - Sidestepped by Page! PAC gets up to all fours, and Hangman rolls over him with an Oklahoma Roll! Cover! 1...2… Kick out from PAC! PAC staggers back up to his feet, confused - but Page grabs him in! Small Package in the center of the ring! 1...2… No! Kick out again! PAC starts to get back to his feet - SCHOOL BOY! ANOTHER COVER FROM PAGE! 1…2…3! NO! PAC just gets the shoulder up, rolling to the outside of the ring to catch a breather from this fast paced grappling from Page. PAC stares down with the Young Bucks, talking trash to the arrogant tag team. He doesn’t, however, see that Page has now made his way onto the ring apron. PAC turns around - SHOOTING STAR BODY PRESS FROM PAGE! Hangman Page stands up on the guardrail, as the crowd cheers him on near unanimously. Hangman grabs PAC by the back of the neck, lifting the Bastard up and tossing him into the ring.

    Page grabs the legs of PAC, lifting him up to his shoulder and perhaps looking for the Right of Passage early! PAC shifts his weight, however, sliding over and rolling through with a sunset flip! Page rolls through all the way back to his feet as PAC remains seated, Page goes for a boot that gets passed to the side by PAC! PAC now gets the school boy on the unbalanced Hangman Page! 1...2… No! Page kicks out! PAC gets back up, as now both men are on their feet. PAC lands a spinning sole butt to the midsection of Page, doubling him over. PAC goes off the ropes, landing a single leg drop kick to the temple! Cover from PAC, not hooking either leg though, 1...2… No! Page still in this contest. PAC transitions, grabbing at the arm of Hangman and applying a key lock. Sonnen talks about the in ring intelligence of PAC, using minor submissions to wear down on the arms to both weaken The Buckshot Lariat, and prepare for a potential Rings of Saturn. PAC wrenches away on the arm of Hangman, who struggles to get an opening from the bottom. Page is able to crawl a bit, getting his leg on the bottom rope and forcing the break. PAC gets back up after breaking the hold at 4, walking back over to his downed opponent and stomping away on the arm of Page! Hangman falls to the apron, clutching at his left arm in agony as Hebner forces PAC to back off the attack. PAC backs off, as Hangman gets to his feet on the apron - Matt and Nick Jackson on the outside shouting words of encouragement. PAC goes to Hangman - only to catch a right hand that staggers The Bastard! PAC falls back, staying on his feet, and Hangman looks for the Buckshot Lariat! NO! PAC with the boot to the left arm, spinning to the back of Hangman - Inverted Hurricanrana! Page goes down like a sack of bricks! Cover! 1...2… NO! Page gets the shoulder up.

    PAC gets back to his feet, stomping away on the upper body of Hangman Page. PAC pulls his left arm out flat on the mat, hitting the ropes and dropping a knee drop right into the elbow of Page! As PAC continues pounding away on his opponent, Excalibur brings up the interesting point that Hangman seems to be looking for all of his home run moves relatively early, perhaps not wanting to spend longer facing PAC than he needs to, while Sonnen calls Page a show off, and that he wants to try and make the match a highlight reel, which won’t work against PAC. Page now, seated in the corner as PAC gets a running start and drives a boot to the chin! Page is down and out on the mat, as PAC starts talking trash to Hangman. PAC paintbrushes at the back of the head of his opponent, saying that he isn’t worth the air time he’s getting. PAC lifts Page by the hair, slapping him in the face, before taking him over with a vertical suplex! PAC floats over into the cover once again! 1...2… No! Page gets out. As Page gets the shoulder up, PAC once again grabs hold of the left arm. Page springs to life, quickly crawling his way into the ropes! PAC’s grasp is broken, and Page falls to the outside of the ring, at the base of the entrance stage. PAC gets onto the apron, as everybody ringside gets to their feet. As Hangman stands up, PAC springboards into a moonsault where he goes absurdly high! WAIT! PAC MIDAIR - NICK JACKSON SHOVES HANGMAN OUT OF THE WAY! NICK JACKSON TAKES THE HIT! PAC and Nick Jackson are on the ground, as the crowd rings out holy shit chants, with slow motion replays of the move being shown.

    Hangman looks confused as he gets to his feet, with Matt Jackson tending to his brother. Page gets pissed at Matt, telling him to stay out of the match. Page grabs PAC by the hair and sends him into the ring! Hangman gets into the ring, trying to shake some feeling back into his left arm. PAC gets to a knee, and Page lands a big boot to the chin! Hangman Page shakes out his arm again, with PAC falling down to the mat. PAC uses the corner to get back to his feet. Hangman Page spreads him out, sending a chop to the chest! The crowd woo’s out in response, while Page uses the time that PAC is draped over in pain to shake out his left arm again. Page stands PAC up again - another loud chop from The Problem Solver! The crowd woo’s again, and PAC falls forward, holding his chest. Hangman pulls PAC into the center of the ring before hitting the ropes - Discus Forearm to the head of PAC! Sent inside out from the strike, PAC is flat on his back! Page goes for the cover! 1...2… Kick out! Page transitions, going towards the legs. Hangman ties up the legs in a Irish Knot, shades of Fit Finlay. Excalibur talks about the in ring intelligence now of Hangman, applying a hold that wears down the opponent while allowing his arm to try and heal up as much as he can. Page wrenches away on the hold, while pounding his left arm on the mat as he tries to loosen himself up. PAC crawls his way to the side, trying to get to the ropes for the break. Page pulls himself forward, sending a strike into the face of PAC that sends him flat on his back. His shoulders go down! 1...2… Shoulders up from PAC, as he is able to get just enough energy out to reach the bottom rope.

    Page lets him go, laying down on the mat as both men try to regain their composure in this title fight. Both men get back to a knee each as Hebner gets to the count of 5. Hangman gets to his feet first, sending a stiff right handed chop to the chest of PAC! PAC steps back, before answering with a side kick to the midsection! Page answers back in no time at all with another chop! PAC steps back for a second once again, planting his foot and driving a roundhouse kick to the chest with all his might! Page stumbles back, rebounding off the ropes before going nose to nose with PAC! Page yells for PAC to bring his best shot! PAC laughs, falling backwards as he measures. PAC takes off with a roundhouse with all his might - but Page kicks his knee out from under him! Hangman thinking three steps ahead! Superkick to the chin of the downed PAC! Cover! 1...2… NO! PAC gets his shoulder up defiantly. Hangman Page grabs PAC in a front chancery, while he pulls his underneath him, building a vertical base. PAC and Page pull each other to their feet in suplex position. Neither man wants to give up ground here, as each competitor is doing all they can to try and deadlift the other into the air. Page begins to lift PAC slowly into the air, but the arm of Page gives out, dropping PAC back to the floor for a moment! PAC takes advantage, pulling Hangman Page into the air and dropping him hard into the mat with a brainbuster! PAC is able to pull an arm over, getting the cover! 1...2… Kick out from Hangman Page!

    PAC gets to his feet, stumbling back as he marches around the ring, mean mugging the fans. He starts talking trash, yelling out, “IS THIS YOUR MAN?! THIS IS YOUR GOLDEN BOY?!” PAC walks over and grabs the face of the disoriented Hangman Page, looking into the camera while jabbing a finger into the side of the head of Page. “THIS IS NOTHING! YOU DARE CALL THIS COMPETITION?!” PAC quickly lets go, leaping to the second rope, and in one fluid motion flies through the air with the Phoenix Splash! Cover again from PAC! 1...2… A weak kick out from Hangman, but he stays in the match nonetheless. PAC pulls Page into the corner, lifting him up onto the top rope. Page tries to fight back, sending weak shots that seem not to have much behind them. PAC quickly hooks the arms up, taking him high into the air and crashing hard with the superplex! Slow motion replays are shown of the ugly landing, as PAC hooks the far leg on the cover after a moment of catching his breath. 1...2… No! Page again forces the shoulder up! PAC gets up to his feet, looking down at Page with a scowl across his face. Page is seated, trying to catch his breath, as PAC just paintbrushes Page’s face with his foot, showing disrespect to his opponent. PAC looks to the crowd, yelling out to them that this is the end for their hero!

    PAC gets down on the mat, hooking one of the arms of Page! Sonnen starts to get frantic, as PAC is looking to apply the Rings of Saturn! Sonnen exclaims that if this submission gets applied correctly, with the damage done, we’ll have our first champion in no time! PAC is trying to work through the hold, trying to pull in the second arm of Page to get the move fully applied. That arm, however, is the good arm of Page, who is putting up a good fight to resist the hold! Page is able to get his feet under him, both men now standing. With a moment of adrenaline, Page deadlifts PAC onto his shoulders, in PERFECT POSITION! PAGE LEAPS UP AND DROPS DOWN WITH A VERY UGLY RIGHT OF PASSAGE! Both men are down and out on the mat, as the crowd and Young Bucks alike come alive, yelling for Hangman Page to get the cover! We see slow motion replays, as Page wasn’t able to hook it in as he usually does due to PAC holding his arms, just dumping PAC in ugly fashion on the neck and shoulders! Page is able to crawl over and get the cover, draping his arm over PAC! 1...2… NO! PAC forces his shoulder up at the very last second! Both men lay down on the mat, as Hebner once again begins to count both men down. They get to the count of 7 when PAC uses the ropes to rise to his feet, Page remaining on one knee in the center of the ring.

    PAC comes over to Page, landing a stiff forearm to the head! Page doesn’t move, remaining on one knee. PAC lands another forearm to the chin! Page stands up, beginning to shake! Hitting the Right of Passage may have gotten Page a second wind! The crowd coming alive, trying to will Page on! Page taps his chin, asking for PAC’s best shot! PAC lands another forearm! SLAP TO THE FACE FROM HANGMAN! Hangman lets out a battle cry, smacking his own chest and face, as he yells out to PAC, “I AM THE BEST!” SUPERKICK TO THE CHIN OF A SHOCKED PAC! PAC falls back, into the ropes. Hangman charges in, but PAC drops the top rope down, sending The Problem Solver to the apron! Page uses his boot to shove PAC away from the ropes, and as PAC comes back - BUCKSHOT LARIAT CONNECTS! ALL OF THE WEIGHT BEHIND IT SENDS PAC FLIPPING DOWN TO THE MAT! Hangman falls into the cover, trying to hook a leg but his bad arm won’t let him! 1...2… No! Kick out from PAC! Hangman wastes no time, getting up to his feet! Hangman lifts PAC onto his shoulder before putting him in - SPINNING TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER FROM HANGMAN! And he falls into the lateral press! 1...2… KICK OUT AGAIN FROM PAC! Hangman falls to his back, with his face in his hands.

    EXCALIBUR. AND WHAT DOES HANGMAN HAVE TO DO TO PUT PAC AWAY?!

    CHAEL SONNEN. At this point, I don’t think PAC CAN be put away. He’s been proving to have a plan for anything that Page has in his arsenal, but Page has gotten lucky in being able to still make it effective.

    EXCALIBUR. The longer this match goes on, the more it favors PAC, but Page has been holding his own at every turn!

    Page gets up, picking up PAC as he does. Page points to the top turnbuckle, as the crowd roars in approval. Page sends PAC into the corner, lifting him up to the top rope. Page holds his breath, trying to get the energy he needs back to put this match away. Page gets to the second rope, looking to get the superplex in return to PAC - right hand from PAC! Another right hand as Page releases his grip! PAC shoves Page off, who crashes to the mat! Hangman Page falls hard into the mat, as PAC catches his breath on the top rope seated. Page starts to stand up, with his back facing the turnbuckle. PAC sees his opening, springing to his feet and standing to try and catch his balance. PAC soars through the air - SHOOTING STAR PRESS TO THE BACK OF THE STANDING HANGMAN! THE KNEES OF PAC DRIVING INTO THE SHOULDER BLADES! PAC covers Hangman Page! 1… KICK OUT FROM PAGE AT 1! PAC falls back, sitting in the corner with a look of bewilderment on his face. Page is on his stomach on the mat, but he looks up to stare into the eyes of PAC. The crowd comes alive, pounding on the guardrail and stomping their feet in support of Hangman Page. Page points to himself, shaking as he struggles to hold himself up - “I… Am… The best!” Page grabs for the boot of PAC, who stands up infuriated. PAC pulls his boot out of Page’s hands, as he stands over the downed Hangman.

    Hangman uses PAC’s legs, trying his best to get back to a vertical base. PAC goes from looking pissed off to a sadistic smirk. PAC kicks away the bad arm of Page, who yells out in pain as he clutches the arm, sitting back on his knees. PAC grabs him by the chin, and growls into his face, “You’re not fit… To lace my boots…” PAC pounces backwards, driving the heel of his boot under the chin of Page! Hangman Page goes limp on the mat, and PAC pounces on top of him! PAC hooks in both arms with the Rings of Saturn! Page is locked in the Rings of Saturn, dead center of the ring! The Young Bucks are yelling out for Page on the outside, while Excalibur rings out their sentiments the same on commentary. Page looks as though he’s going to cry, as he starts to shake while PAC pulls back even harder! Page’s hands are trapped, but he has to verbally submit to Hebner! PAC has made Page submit! PAC is the champion!

    WINNER!

    FADE ON WINNING GRAPHIC - FADE OFF.

    PAC releases the hold and stands up, raising his hands and getting on the middle rope. PAC almost falls off the ropes as the adrenaline spike seems to wear off, and ring hands get ice packs for both competitors. Brian Hebner presents the All Elite Wrestling Championship to PAC, who demands that he put the belt around his waist. Hebner protests for a moment, before PAC turns around, refusing to take the belt from him. Hebner sighs, strapping the championship belt around the first ever champion, and raising his hand.

    We cut to a low shot of Hangman Page on the outside, his arm being looked at by doctors as The Young Bucks kneel next to him. Page is crying on the outside, trying to hide his face from being seen by the cameras. The shot fades out from that, to a shot of PAC having his hand held high by Brian Hebner, as gold and black confetti falls from the sky.

    EXCALIBUR. And the confetti falling for the first ever All Elite Wrestling Champion, but perhaps not the man that the crowd here tonight had hoped for.

    CHAEL SONNEN. I don’t get it, to be honest with you. PAC is an exemplary wrestler, and proved tonight he is the best in the world. With that championship belt around his waist, it only serves as a reminder.

    EXCALIBUR. We want to thank everybody who tuned in, and don’t forget to follow All Elite Wrestling on Social Media, and tune in to the PREMIERE EPISODE of Dynamite on TNT, the first Tuesday of June at 10:30 PM eastern standard time. For Chael Sonnen, I am Excalibur, signing off!

    Post-Show Press Conferences/Interviews Highlights on YouTube:
    (Available for On Demand Streaming Uncensored on All Elite Wrestling’s Website)


    Post Event Interviews (From Directly When They Came Backstage):

    Rey Fenix Interview After Battle Royal Win:
    Rey Fenix, with a translator, spoke to some press after the pre-show battle royal. He would say that he was thankful for the opportunity to compete for a championship match, and that being #1 Contender now definitely made up for his brother being on the main card and not himself (he laughed with reporters, seemingly only joking about caring about the placement). He would be clear that he will be watching the main event with a keen eye, and that whoever wins will be a short lived title reign.


    Allysin Kay Interview After Title Win:
    AK-47 said that it was about damn time another major promotion saw the talent that she had, and put it on the grand stage. Kay said that she was going to make the women’s division in All Elite Wrestling a dynasty, that she is going to run the division from the day the doors have opened until the day she decides to retire, because she is the greatest wrestler alive man or woman. Allysin Kay goes on to challenge anybody in the women’s division to step up, because there isn’t anybody on her level.

    Eddie Edwards Interview After Title Win:

    Edwards was grateful to be the new NWA Worlds Champion, also talking to William Patrick Corgan backstage during this interview. Corgan said that they are looking to build the NWA back to the level that it used to be, and that All Elite Wrestling and Eddie Edwards specifically may be essential to that ideal, and he offers a handshake. Edwards accepts, and they shake on the idea of “making the NWA Worlds Championship one of the most discussed championships, to match how prestigious the championship is.”

    Villain Enterprises Post Rhodes Ordeal Interview:

    Marty Scurll was asked a myriad of questions by reporters, but he refused to answer any. Scurll had a blank expression across his face behind his sunglasses, seeming bored if feeling any emotion. PCO and Brody King behind him would mean mug the reporters until they backed down, and once it was recognized that they wouldn’t answer any questions, the reporters went quiet and Villain Enterprises left the premises.


    Time Machine Interview After Title Win:

    Sabin and KUSHIDA were sore after their match, both men already having joints wrapped up to down the swelling. They pledged to prove that tag team wrestling is an under appreciated art in the world, and that they will defend the championships against any and all comers. KUSHIDA thanks Sabin specifically for helping him to break through and prove himself to America, while Sabin thanks KUSHIDA for helping him prove that he still has what it takes to continue as a world class competitor.

    David Arquette Interview After Loss:
    The Interview Went As Follow
    -
    REPORTER. Mr. Arquette, you must be frustrated about what went on out -

    DAVID ARQUETTE. FRUSTRATED?!

    Arquette tried to get at the reporter, who backed off as security stepped up.

    DAVID ARQUETTE. Frustrated isn’t the god damned word for it! This is bullshit! Knox screwed me!

    At this point, some reporters started to raise an eyebrow, as Arquette drew more berserk with rage.

    DAVID ARQUETTE. Everybody screws me, and nobody does a goddamn thing about it! Nobody in the building cares, nobody in the dressing room cares because of who I am, so many god damned injustices around here, and I’ve had it up to here! Everybody knows it, I know it - everybody knows it - I DESERVE AN ALL ELITE WRESTLING CONTRACT, EVERYBODY JUST -

    At this point, David Arquette was escorted off the grounds of the building by MGM Grand Arena Security. Some reporters were put off by the outburst, while some older reporters had some flashbacks to a particular War Zone with that specific tirade.
    Press Conferences (After The Show Ended):

    Becky Knox Panel:
    Becky Knox said that she was unbothered by Arquette’s outburst before being ejected, claiming that some just can’t cut it in this business. She also said that she heard about Allysin Kay’s open invitation to the women’s roster, and now that she’s on the roster she plans to gun for that women’s championship the only way that she knows how; by taking over. Knox wouldn’t elaborate further, but when asked what her goal was for coming to All Elite Wrestling, she said that it was simple: she wants the ability to show that she is the best, and for it to be respected as such. The panel ended, as Knox got up and walked off, with cameras flashing from the crowd.

    Tony Khan, William Patrick Corgan and Stu Barrett Panel:

    Tony Khan, acting Chairman of AEW, William Patrick Corgan, acting President of the NWA, and Stu Barrett, formerly known in professional wrestling as Stu Bennett and most notably Wade Barrett in the WWE, who was introduced as official matchmaker for All Elite Wrestling’s new Television show, Dynamite on TNT. They would be sure to clarify that Barrett’s on screen presence would be minimal and when necessary, assuming he needed to settle something there and then in the ring, otherwise the focus of the show will be on the competitors. Corgan was asked to what extent the NWA would be working with All Elite Wrestling, whether it would be a feeder territory like NXT has become for WWE. Corgan would respond that while not on that scale of connection, there is a loose connection and that NWA would be more like a filter than a feeder. If somebody works for the NWA, it isn’t a guarantee they work for AEW, but if they impress it is more likely to be offered. Khan also clarified that he was not taking many questions himself during this panel as he would be hosting a media call tomorrow at 2 PM eastern standard time where he would field questions one on one. They all thanked the reporters for their presence and support before having a Photo OP and leaving.
    Chris Jericho Panel:
    Jericho would be clear to point out that he defeated Kota Ibushi, a feat that not many people have on their resume. Chris Jericho said that he has his eyes set on the All Elite Wrestling Championship, and that he has beaten PAC before, and he isn’t afraid to beat Rey Fenix as well. When asked about how it felt to be back wrestling on TNT for a non-WWE promotion, Jericho responded that he, “[Doesn’t] care about any stigma, and this isn’t AEW vs. WWE, this is Chris Jericho vs. AEW. This is Chris Jericho setting out to prove myself as the best in the world, and I’m going to take All Elite Wrestling and mold it in the IMAGE of Jericho!”
    Hangman Page & The Young Bucks Panel:
    Page was somber and quiet in most responses, seeming at a loss for how he came up short tonight. He was asked about why Nick Jackson shoved himself in the way of the moonsault, but Page claims he didn’t ask for that to happen. Nick says he was caught up in the moment and wanted the best for Hangman. He apologized to everybody and said it wouldn’t happen again. The Young Bucks were asked where Kenny Omega was, in terms of a press conference, and they said he had a media tour to go on to promote the television show that he left for almost immediately after their match. They were all asked about their thoughts on Marty Scurll and Villain Enterprises taking out Cody Rhodes, and presumably also Stephen Amell, Flip Gordon, and Brandi Rhodes. All three were at a loss for what that could mean for their friendships, but all three claim that they didn’t see it at the time because they were preparing for their own matches. They all say they will be trying to reach Marty to get answers for everybody as soon as possible.
    PAC Panel:
    PAC could be described, in a phrase, as over the moon. He would laugh whenever the name of Hangman was mentioned, and would outwardly mock his opponent, even ignoring moments where reporters mentioned how close it was. All that PAC cared about was that The King finally reached the throne that he deserved, and that it was never going to leave his grasp. He was asked what he thought about his first challenger in Rey Fenix, but quickly said that Fenix is good at being a speed wrestler, but PAC is what happens when the fastest wrestler is also the strongest, and the smartest wrestler in the game today. PAC ends on a high note, taking a beer and toasting a cheers, shouting, “ALL HAIL THE BASTARD KING!” And having a toast as we went off the air.

    Well, hopefully this monster of a project clears up why I have been slow to start this up. I have the next few months of TV planned out but the structure I will have with writing TV is going to be much different than writing events. Consider the events as a huge specialty, while TV may miss some of the finer details in terms of match writing, but I will convey everything majorly important. Thank you for reading this, and if you made it this far I am severely grateful and a little shocked

    All Elite Wrestling Post Double Or Nothing Media Call

    All Elite Wrestling Media Call Following Double or Nothing 2019
    On The Line: Tony Khan
    2 PM Eastern Standard Time

    The media call begins with Tony Khan addressing all the reporters and potential advertisers, as well as current advertising partners and welcoming them to the call. He starts off by saying that the purpose of this call is to erase any remaining outlier questions about All Elite Wrestling that could not be answered until the end of their first event. He opens up the calls to different callers from different positions and proceeds to answer questions to the best of his ability.

    CALLER. Mr. Khan, congratulations on the so far well received Double or Nothing. At the event, a television program was announced as you will partner with TNT to put wrestling on a Turner network for the first time in over a decade. What was the decision making process behind the time slot being 10:30 - Midnight? And, if I may, will there be the same broadcasting team seen on Double or Nothing, or will there be a new set of faces for television?

    TONY KHAN. One of the things All Elite Wrestling is trying to do is not to insult any viewers in terms of the product we put forward. In modern television and media, the presentations that tend to be a tad bit darker in presentation is what is in the forefront, and the gritty, violent aspect of wrestling is an art that we believe is no longer represented in a way that capitalizes on the market, not dissimilar to the UFC largely allowing adult language on their pay-per views, as we have shown our ability to do under our contracts yesterday. In short, I guess, it is due to the fact that the television product will likely have a heavier tone and a television rating that may not fit in with key demographics at another time slot at this point. In terms of our broadcasting on Dynamite, we have been searching out people who will be best to set AEW apart from the rest and help to establish our own brand and style or representation. We have set out calls and offers to many different people and have tried different people out in studio, but we have settled on four main broadcasters that will be apart of our team, two of which will act as the commentary team, two of which will be backstage correspondents, and two ring announcers. The announcements of who these people will actually be will be on the website and social media accounts in the coming days leading up to the debut edition of Dynamite.

    CALLER. Hi, Tony, thanks for doing this. With the roster that is known for All Elite Wrestling, are you not worried about the perception growing to be that AEW cannot stand on its own? A large amount of the listed roster are wrestlers who primarily wrestle for New Japan, and one would think this spells worry for the future of the companies on screen product.

    TONY KHAN. This may be something we missed the boat on in terms of clarity, and our apologies. We felt that it would be unwise to jump entirely into new faces and new personalities when we have a television deal with a station like TNT. Our goal is to use who fans are currently familiar with to introduce them to the newer stars. The talent that is borrowed from other promotions, which is greatly appreciated I would like to add, will eventually be phased out to a more case by case situation where it is a bigger deal. Realistically by 2020 we would like to have our on screen product predominantly if not exclusively talent that work solely for All Elite Wrestling.

    CALLER. Hi, Tony. Congrats on the big night the other night. Now, what you just said in terms of borrowing stars, does that mean that a large amount of talent at Double Or Nothing won’t be here in say, six months? Could you give a bit of insight into what we can expect in terms of turnover?

    TONY KHAN. Yes, I can touch on that for a bit. Without getting too far into how contracts work with AEW, because we try to make everything the best on a case by case basis rather than having a template everyone gets, there are three typical types of deals we run. There is a contract type we use where it is global exclusivity, where the contracted wrestler is only allowed to wrestle for us and dates we agree to, which grants them employee status and benefits such as health insurance. The tier below that in terms of exclusivity is exclusive booking rights in America. This allows for a wrestler to compete for any company they want, so long as they do not compete in America, barring cases All Elite Wrestling either greenlits or helps to broker in the first place.The final tier, which would be the type that you are considering when talking about wrestlers like Tetsuya Naito and Kazuchika Okada specifically, is a more of an open door policy. It’s a contract that states that you will be available to complete a certain amount of dates within a period, but while you aren’t with AEW, you can compete wherever you like without consequence. As far as turnover on our roster is concerned, I think there realistically shouldn’t be much of a surprise in terms of who is staying for the long haul and who isn’t. I don’t think I’d be breaking headline news to say we don’t have Kazuchika Okada on an exclusive deal, and he likely won’t be a regular fixture for us. There will be some, but the idea is for it to be done in a way that allows for new faces and characters to fill the gaps placed by the turnover, and we’re doing our best to make those ends meet and make it as smooth as possible for our fans.

    CALLER. Good afternoon, Tony. With all the talent leaving the WWE at the moment, and the general feeling that All Elite is looking for recognizable talent, maybe proved by the fact that Becky Knox and La Sombra have already debuted for you. What are AEW going to do to avoid being considered the place where talent who were “rejected” by WWE go?

    TONY KHAN. *chuckles* Pardon, I’m sorry. I mean no disrespect, it’s just funny you’d ask that because it’s something that had been my biggest fear for this project. I want All Elite Wrestling to be recognized for what it is, legitimate, quality, alternative. Becky and Sombra are cases of extreme talent, in my opinion and theirs, not being used to the potential they have, and I want to bring back the chance to go to a different company and take a chance on yourself without having to leave the country to do it. I will say that there is more that left the WWE that we have signed, and I’m confident breaking the news here, again in the interest of transparency, that there will likely be the debut of one act a month on our television that has recently left WWE for the rest of 2019. At the end of the year, as I said earlier, we hope to have our full roster set and on television, and then the debuts and “special appearances” will slow down as we find our stride. I don’t feel this is ruining any upcoming product of ours to announce, again as I don’t want it to be a surprise to anybody that a company offering contracts that aren’t typical to this industry has attracted the eyes of some people unhappy with their roles. I hope that people will look past the fact that a few stars made the jump and instead look to what the talents are doing on screen, and if they deserve to be on screen for this company or any.

    CALLER. Hey, Tony. AEW has announced that Joey Janela will continue to do his Spring Break styled shows. With Cody saying on Twitter that there will be no AEW shows on WrestleMania weekends, does this end Joey Janela’s runs on WrestleMania Weekend?

    TONY KHAN. Well, in a way yes and no. Yes in the sense that the show will no longer be funded by the company that it was previously. Instead, All Elite Wrestling will provide the funding, but we have no affiliation with events of that nature otherwise in terms of sponsorship. We believe in the popularity of these shows meaning that wrestling fans want their favorite wrestlers to showcase their creativity more often, and we’re more than interested in helping for it. AEW wrestlers have the ability to submit a request for the money for a program and all they must provide is a desired budget, a reasonable explanation for what they will use said budget for, and an arena they have in mind. Otherwise, shows like Joey Janela’s Spring Break, Orange Cassidy’s Event, Bloodsport, and so many other creative shows that showcase the great diversity of our sport will be allowed to be continued entirely the same, including the occasional use of AEW talent.

    CALLER. Hey, Tony. Congrats on Double or Nothing and all these major announcements you have coming out. With the announcement of live TV and pay-per views, a lot of questions have risen about your planned locations to tour? Could you shed any light on that?

    TONY KHAN. Well, as of now we plan to stay in America in terms of shows. We don’t want to over step our limits and overestimate our abilities. We may have a presence overseas or over the border in terms of representation in a match or card, but a fully All Elite Wrestling promoted event in another country is realistically a far way off. However, we will be running live shows independent of television taping, which will begin in September. If there is a championship match, or a match with notable implications, the show will be available for purchase on the FITE App for Replays, with the live airing being free. This allows everybody to keep up to date with the important changes going on during the year. And, while discussing our touring schedule I am going to announce that when the clock strikes midnight the night before the first Tuesday Night Dynamite, there will be a full schedule and tickets on sale for future live events and television tapings. Now, in the interest of time and my running out of announcements up my sleeve *chuckles* we’re going to go ahead and make this the last question.

    CALLER. Hi, Tony, thank you for your time. I want to try and end on a bit of a lighter note. With all the announcements about all the different ways to watch All Elite Wrestling, what would you like for people to keep in mind for their first time tuning in to the AEW product?

    TONY KHAN. I want them to take it for face value. Cynicism is such an epidemic in wrestling, and I understand I may be out of place to say that with how little time I’ve technically spent in it, but I’ve spent so much time following it for many many years to feel as though I’m not unjustified to say as much. We want to present an authentic alternative of men and women who truly believe in everything they put forward for the crowd to watch. I have all my faith in the talented group that we have in our locker room to put on the best wrestling show in the world, and they have their faith in me to put forward that platform for them to do so. All I ask is that a legitimate chance to watch our product is given if you’re curious, and if we can’t hook you in, that’s fine. That’s more than enough for me, personally. *clears throat* Now, on a personal note, thank you all for listening and asking your questions. Don’t forget to tune in at 10:30 eastern standard time on TNT Tuesday June 4th for the debut edition of Tuesday Night Dynamite. The show will take place at Casino Miami in Miami, Florida and tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10 am. I hope to see you all there, and here’s to a prosperous future both as a company and an industry.

    A prerecorded tape is played promoting All Elite Wrestling’s social media’s, as well as replays of Double or Nothing, before playing an audio commercial for Tuesday Night Dynamite as the feed goes down.

    Re: All Elite Wrestling: A Global Revolution

    Alright my friend, I’ve read this thing over once before writing some thoughts down because it was such a massive show. I really love the formatting, and everything flows so nicely. It is awesome to see someone take so much pride in their work, and it certainly shows here. For some strange reason I really liked the addition of the time marks, it made me feel like I was actually sitting through All In again lol. Now my knowledge on some of these guys isn’t the best because I’m still stuck in 1994 on the Network and rarely watch anything outside of WWE. I do know most guys on the card though, and did watch All In. I try to follow AEW now with the roster signings and such, but I’m not as knowledgeable about it as I’d like to be.

    I really loved the Jericho promo right off the bat. A great addition on the pre-show. Him putting on his face paint in between talking was incredible. So Fenix goes over in the Battle Royal. Great choice. It was between him and Scurll throughout the match, I thought. Fenix is now the number 1 contender, which I think would be awesome. Either Hangman or Pac would be a great match on paper, which for you will be a blast to write out.

    There is so much detail here with the pre-show on WGN, it’s really amazing. I’ll sound like a broken record throughout this, but I can really tell how much time and effort you put into this show.

    The opening is great, I love that song. You make it feel like a big presentation, something that sometimes goes to the wayside in the beginning of a big show. So I’ll be up front and tell you that I have no idea who Allysin Kay is, but I am familiar with Rosemary from that faction with Abyss in TNA. Kay seems pretty awesome inside the ring, and this match was great. While looking at the card beforehand, I didn’t expect the Women’s title to go on first, but you sure wrote it as a hot opener. So Kay is obviously the face here, and she becomes the first champion. Maybe I’ll google her later or something lol.

    Sean Mooney doing backstage interviews! He’s been a busy man pulling double duty between your AEW and my WWF haha! I love it, an ode to the old school ways of doing things, and it is perfect. Hangman sounded very strong here.

    Keeping with the real life parallels you have the NWA title on the card. I always loved Edwards, thought he should have made it to the WWE eventually. Aldis is a very underrated worker. This was an incredibly well booked match. Aldis drilling Alisha with the kendo stick! Edwards is out for blood now. Damn, what a false finish. You got me there. Edwards ends up winning the title, which is very well deserved. You still kept Aldis strong here, so you could take this program any direction from here.

    These little segments in between are great. Pac jumping rope, getting ready for his big match. You definitely are making this main event feel special throughout the show.

    Time for some SCU. I was always a fan of Daniels. For some strange reason, I’m not real big on Cody. I don’t know what it is. Amell with the big spot. This match was what you would expect from these six. Rhodes getting the win was quite fine. And then I did not see this coming! This was great. I didn’t think Scurll would turn on his friend, and bring his own friends with him. This sets up so many different options moving forward. I am really behind this storyline now.

    I’m not too familiar with The Rascalz, but I know Sabin from TNA. Kushida is the guy that just signed with NXT I think? And my all-time favorite non-WWE tag team, The Briscoes. I was really hoping they came out to Lynyrd Skynyrd like they used to in the early ROH days. Man, they were my favorite team to see live at ROH shows in 2005/2006. This match is just filled with action. I commend you on being able to write it out so nicely, it all flows so well. Well that was an awesome match all around. I can get behind Time Machine as the first tag champs, but I think for now they are just place holders for someone else. Your entire roster is stacked, so there are plenty of tag teams to pick from moving forward. Great job here.

    I get that you had to put in this hokey stuff to feed off of real life, but I’m not a fan of Joey Ryan or any of that stuff. David Arquette I know is back on the indys. I don’t know Becky Knox. Man, I will be one well-rounded wrestling fan after keeping up with your AEW tread haha.

    Jericho and Ibushi was a great, well-written match. I know Jericho can’t go like he used to, but screw it, make him any type of Jericho you want in this thread! I didn’t expect Jericho to go over here, and that CodeBreaker really did come from out of nowhere haha. The post-match antics were awesome. You write modern day Jericho so well. I am really pumped to see where you take Jericho next. The crazy thing is I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he ended up with the World title down the line, but he really is perfect in any role you place him in.

    Pentagon is great. He is probably one of the only guys I go out of my way to watch matches of on the internet. I really could never get behind Okada. I’ve seen a few matches, yeah he’s a great wrestler and the whole rainmaker gimmick is great, but there is just something to him that doesn’t interest me. Hopefully Dave Meltzer doesn’t read this review haha. This match was awesome to read. So much action back and forth, I really didn’t think Pentagon was going over, but I’m very glad you’ve pulled the trigger on him winning here. Interesting that Fenix is the #1 contender, while Pentagon also wins. I wonder how Pentagon will feel about this after his huge victory. I’d love to see a brother/brother feud down the line at some point.

    La Sombra! At first, I didn’t think it was really Andrade but I am absolutely hyped he is in your AEW. He was one of the original founders of LIJ so I am pumped for this match. Obviously Kenny and The Bucks can go. There is so much action here I’m having a hard time keeping up just by reading! I feel like I’m really watching a Bucks/Omega match. You really hit this match right on the head. I was surprised you had The Elite go over, as well as Cody earlier. Either this means a clean sweep for Hangman, or this is not a good sign of things to come.

    The build inside this show to this main event has been incredible, and it just keeps getting better. I loved the tale of the tape table you added in. You really went out of your way to give this a big match feel, and did it ever deliver! Again, so much action, I loved the spinning tombstone spot. I kinda had a feeling Pac would go over here, just because as I said earlier The Elite and Cody both won their matches. I wonder if this leads to dissention in the group that Hangman couldn’t deliver while everyone else did. Pac is the perfect guy as your first champion, and the matches with some guys on the roster are gonna be incredible.

    Well my friend, that was one hell of a show. As I said throughout, your attention to detail on the little things made this an absolutely awesome read. I don’t know if I’ll be a fan of real life AEW, but I am definitely sitting front row at all of your future shows haha. I am very excited to see where this all leads, plus Dynamite on TNT to look forward to. You really hit a home run here, great work all around.
