    Default World Series Wrestling

    January 6, 2015

    "Pro Wrestling Is In My Lifeblood, And It Feels Good To Be Back"

    NEW YORK - Another McMahon has entered the world of professional wrestling; well...let's just say that he has returned. Shane McMahon, son of WWE owner and CEO Vince McMahon, announced today that he will enter the ever growing world of professional wrestling/sports entertainment (the latter a phrase coined by his father). Shane McMahon--the former Executive Vice President of Global Media for WWE--made the shocking announcement at his New York City office.

    "Growing up, the professional wrestling industry was what I knew. This sport has had a profound impact on my life as well as my family's life." McMahon said. "It is my pleasure to announce the inception of WSW, World Series Wrestling."

    The announcement comes to the shock of many, as McMahon resigned from the family business in 2010 to pursue other endeavors. Since then, McMahon has become the Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board for YOU On Demand, an American company providing streaming cable service for China. Since his departure from WWE, McMahon has not expressed interest in returning to the business his grandfather and father made famous.

    "The time is right for the project to be launched. I think that word, 'time' is so important. The pro wrestling industry is constantly evolving, as is the audience. WSW will stand on its own, and stand apart from the other mainstream companies. WSW is professional wrestling, plain and simple. We will not shy away from that term. WSW will honor the tradition and excitement of this sport. WSW is also entertainment. We strive to keep our audience on the edge of their seat with our programming. Our goal is simple, to entertain and feature the best professional wrestlers from around the world. We will be the world showcase of wrestling styles, from the pageantry of the United States, lucha libre of Mexico, strong style of Japan, technical execution of Canada, and much much more."

    It should be noted that McMahon's company will not be associated with the WWE in any way. Not shying away from the obvious, McMahon addressed this issue, "We're not trying to cut anyone's throats. That time period in this business is over. We strive to be different. No one understands the global reach of the WWE more than I do, but World Series Wrestling is not the WWE, nor does it want to be. We strive to be different. We will offer a product that is different than what the WWE or other companies are offering, because there is space there--and we seek to make that space our own."

    McMahon did indicate that negotiations with talent and television networks have begun. "Of course you can't survive in this business without television, and negotiations are already underway. Like I said above, WSW strives to be different, and we are looking at every medium available to expose and expand our product. At this point we are looking at a fall debut."

    The announcement has sparked a media wildfire, as the McMahon name is so synonymous with the industry....and money. Since World Championship Wrestling (WCW) closed its doors in the spring of 2001, there have been numerous professional wrestling companies that have opened with dreams and aspirations of establishing a foothold in a market place dominated by the WWE. The majority of these companies now cease to exist. The immediate startup difference between these flash in the pan companies and McMahon's WSW is money. Sure Shane McMahon is wrestling royalty, but the wealth associated with him should guarantee—at the minimum—that WSW comes out of the gate with a first class looking production.

    WSW will join the fray of TNA Wrestling and Ring of Honor Wrestling (ROH). TNA--a company financed by Panda Energy--has fallen on hard times recently, losing its primetime television slot on Spike. Their flagship show, Impact Wrestling, has since been relocated to Destination America, a premium cable channel. ROH is widely praised for the quality of its wrestling matches, but financial funding and mainstream exposure have always been a struggle with the company.

    Shane McMahon announced a press conference to be held next week where further details would be revealed. "Pro wrestling is in my lifeblood, and it feels good to be back."

    World Series Wrestling Is Official: The Countdown Is On

    January 13, 2015

    NEW YORK - A week after making the announcement that he would return to the professional wrestling business, Shane McMahon held a press conference at his New York City office today where he announced further developments with his company, World Series Wrestling. McMahon was joined by Kevin Kay, president of Spike, and John Laurinaitis, who in a shocker--was announced as Head of Creative. The announcement of Laurinaitis' hiring was not the only notable occurrence. Highlights of the press conference are transcribed below:

    Shane McMahon Opening Statement: I just want to thank everyone for being in attendance today, as I hope this day will be remembered as fondly as last week's announcement of the creation of WSW. I would like to introduce Kevin Kay, the president of Spike, and Mr. John Laurinaitis, who I'm sure most that are familiar with this industry already know. John just flew in this morning and the ink may still be drying on his contract, but I am so excited to have him join the WSW family as the Head of Creative. Both of these gentlemen will have statements and be available for questions as well. I would like to take this time to thank the fans and supporters for their words of encouragement in the past week. I'm sure many of you can guess the question that I've been asked the most in the past seven days (laughter). Quite simply, the time is right for the birth of WSW. Contrary to popular belief, I never fell out of love with professional wrestling. As an adult, a businessman, a father, and a husband I thought it was in my best interest to pursue opportunities outside of the WWE back in 2010, but I was always still a fan. It has been a dream of mine to forge a new path in this business just as my grandfather and my father did, and I'm proud to announce that on Tuesday, September 8, 2015 we will do just that with the premier of WSW Ignition on Spike at 9 p.m. EST.

    Kevin Kay Opening Statement: I would just like to thank Shane for having me today, as well as thank everyone in attendance. I'm here to represent Spike, and I speak on behalf of the network when I say that we could not be more happy to be the home and haven for World Series Wrestling. Spike has long been recognized as cutting edge television, and our network is constantly evolving. We view WSW as a natural fit. As Shane just said, WSW Ignition will air each and every Tuesday night at 9/8 ct beginning September 8. Ignition will be a power hour of television, and we will make this one of the most entertaining and captivating hours of programming on any network. Our goal at Spike is to present unique, engaging shows that get people talking, and I know WSW will be able to provide that to our audience.

    John Laurinaitis Opening Statement: I'm very happy to be standing in front of you right now, because this means that I get to continue to do what I love and that's work with wrestling and wrestlers. I'm honored to serve as the Head of Creative, and I am anxious to get to work and put on the best wrestling television show each week. Anyone that knows my career knows that I spent the majority of my time in the ring internationally. Obviously as you travel around this world, there are different styles prevalent, and Shane's desire to showcase these styles is what drove me to WSW. All I have ever known in my adult life is wrestling, and it's something I hold near and dear. I can promise you that we will bring you the best we've got every night, and we will put on the best wrestling show you can find.

    Q: Has any talent been signed yet, and how large will the roster be?

    Shane McMahon: We are currently on an international hunt for talent. We call ourselves World Series Wrestling, and we want to emphasize the word 'World' as we truly want this to be an international spotlight. I can announce to you that Mauro Ranallo has been signed on to be the Director of Broadcasting, and play-by-play man for WSW.

    Q: What will the format of Ignition be?

    John Laurinaitis: Part of formatting Ignition is the fact that we have no format. We will keep the show fresh each and every week. Our goal is provide a strong in ring product, while maintaining an entertaining hook to keep our fans wanting more.

    Q: Will you tour or will you tape from a fixed location?

    Shane McMahon: Plans are being put into place right now regarding our television production. Our plan is establish ourselves as a first class, top of the line product and expand from there. But we do have plans to go on the road and tour.

    Q: Any plans for Pay Per View?

    Shane McMahon: (laughs) Man we are still nine months away from kickoff and already a pay per view question (laughter). As I said when I announced WSW, we are looking at every media platform available to highlight and grow our product.

    Q: John, why WSW?

    John Laurinaitis: WSW represents an opportunity to do what I love. Shane absolutely blew me away when he approached me with his business plan. This job allows me the chance to continue my passion, but gives me a chance to be a teacher as well and work with new in-ring talent as well as veterans.

    As the press conference came to a close, Shane McMahon--ever the showman--returned to the podium to make one final announcement....

    Shane McMahon: Before everyone packs up, I want to take the final moments of this press conference to officially announce the first ever talent signing in WSW history. Ladies and gentlemen......AJ Styles is now a member of WSW!

    Alberto El Patron Leads New WSW Signees

    January 19, 2015

    NEW YORK - Alberto El Patron, formerly Alberto Del Rio in the WWE, has officially signed with Shane McMahon's World Series Wrestling (WSW). El Patron is the second signee to the new professional wrestling company and heads up a group of wrestlers that officially joined the company today.

    Uhaa Nation has also joined WSW. The 27 year old has competed both domestically and internationally in Japan. A rare combination of size and agility, Nation was a highly sought after prospect by several of the major national companies. WSW appears to have beaten WWE to the punch, as it is known that WWE was interested in signing Nation to their NXT brand.

    Fenix rounds out the group of signees. An international star and champion in AAA in Mexico and Pro Wrestling NOAH and Pro Wrestling Wave in Japan, Fenix will make his debut to the mainstream American audience in WSW.

    Alberto El Patron, Uhaa Nation, and Fenix join AJ Styles--who was the first signee. It is clear that Shane McMahon and his team are looking to act quickly to prepare their roster. WSW is set to debut on Spike this fall with their weekly television show Ignition.

    Alberto could be a big deal. He has all the tools. But even Lucha Underground doesn't use him in right in my opinion. Should be interesting to see how he fairs here.

    Uhaa I have no opinion on. When he makes his NXT debut, that will be the first match of his I'll ever see. I got some wrestling blind spots. haha.

    Love Fenix. He's gold in the ring.

    More Signings For McMahon's WSW

    NEW YORK - After a busy month of January, WSW and Shane McMahon started February with a wave of new signings.

    Chael Sonnen, a former mixed martial artist who competed in UFC, has signed with WSW to join the on-air broadcast team partnering with Director of Broadcasting and play-by-play man Mauro Ranallo. A former All-American wrestler at the University of Oregon, Sonnen retired from MMA after an eighteen year career.

    Matt Sydal, a journeyman throughout promotions in the United States and Japan just completed a six year career in the WWE as Evan Bourne. Sydal is one of the most innovative high flyers in the world, and brings his unique style to WSW.

    Chris Sabin brings a tremendous amount of experience in a relatively short amount of time. Sabin has held eleven championships throughout his career, and is a one time World Champion as a member of TNA. Sabin is one half of The Motor City Machine Guns tag team.

    Alex Shelley, the other half of The Motor City Machine Guys, has also signed with WSW. Shelley is a highly decorated international performer as both a singles and tag team competitor.

    PJ Black, formerly Justin Gabriel in the WWE, also was announced as a signee. The South African wrestler was quoted as saying he was seeking a "reset" of his career.

    WSW will debut on September 8 on Spike with the debut of their weekly series Ignition.

    Mysterio Jr. And Arn Anderson Headline New WSW Signees

    NEW YORK - The newest group of World Series Wrestling talent was announced today and it was headlined by several big name veterans.

    Rey Mysterio Jr. has officially joined WSW. Signed earlier today, Mysterio will return to original ring name "Rey Mysterio Jr." Mysterio Jr. was released from his WWE contract four days ago and was a high profile target for Shane McMahon. Mysterio Jr. is one of the most decorated international professional wrestlers in history, and has worked for almost every major company in the past twenty-five years. Mysterio Jr. will be relied on as both an in-ring competitor and leader backstage.

    Arn Anderson has joined WSW as the Head of Talent Relations and will serve as a member of the WSW broadcast team joining play-by-play broadcaster Mauro Ranallo and Chael Sonnen.

    Masato Yoshino and Genki Horiguchi have been signed as well. Both wrestlers have spent the majority of their careers in Japan's Dragon Gate promotion. While both men have made appearances on American television, joining WSW will be their first mainstream exposure to the North American audience. It is believed that the men will work together as a tag team.

    Shelton Benjamin rounds out the group of signings announced by WSW. Benjamin is well known both domestically and abroad. A two-time All American wrestler at the University of Minnesota, Benjamin is known as one of the most athletic wrestlers in the world.

    The Young Bucks Highlight New WSW Signings

    NEW YORK - Matt and Nick Jackson, together known as the tag team The Young Bucks, have joined Shane McMahon’s World Series Wrestling. One of the top tag teams in the world today, The Young Bucks have held multiple championships across the globe. It has been rumored that McMahon and WSW will place a heavy emphasis on tag team wrestling, and the signing of The Young Bucks seems to indicate that.

    Staying with the tag team theme, Andrew Everett and Trevor Lee have been signed. Everett and Lee are highly praised performers from Charlotte, North Carolina that were being targeted for an NXT deal. While frequently working as opponents, it is believed that the two will be partnered together as a tag team along with a manager to help serve as a mouthpiece. There is no indication on who the manager would be if WSW goes this route.

    Mike Bennett and Maria have also crossed over to WSW. The husband and wife duo have been mainstays in Ring of Honor, but rumors began floating around in January that they were looking at other opportunities.

    Center Stage Atlanta To Serve As Home Of Ignition

    ATLANTA - It has long been said that the professional wrestling business is cyclical, well that holds true in this instance as 2015 will mark the return of professional wrestling to Center Stage Atlanta. Once a long term home for WCW Saturday Night tapings, the building has seen many changes over the years and has primarily been used as a concert venue. However, Shane McMahon and World Series Wrestling announced today they have signed a one year lease to the building and will begin renovations immediately, as Center Stage Atlanta will serve as the home of Ignition, WSW’s weekly television show set to debut September 8 on Spike.

    “The history of this building is so unique and so important to this industry,” Shane McMahon said. “We have been looking for a place that we can call home and a place that would allow us to produce first class television that stands alone in terms of value, and Center Stage Atlanta represents just that.”

    Initial renderings have been released on WSW’s official Twitter page and website. The building will be renovated for a wrestling only setup including 1,250 seats, staging, ring, and lighting. Post production equipment will also be installed allowing WSW to control all elements of their production from one facility. It has also been confirmed that the company will tape two episodes of Ignition every other Tuesday, with the first taping airing on Spike same day tape delay.

    McMahon stated, “I am very excited about this deal with Center Stage Atlanta. We will have the opportunity to control all aspects of our television production from one location which is an extraordinary benefit. Atlanta is a great city as well. There is a diverse nature about Atlanta, and it will serve as the perfect origin point for WSW. “

    The decision to tape from a fixed location answered many questions regarding whether the company would tour or not. McMahon also addressed this issue. “Our goal is to grow and entertain millions around the world, and we do have future plans about taking WSW on the road; however, at this point our deal with Center Stage Atlanta allows us to do everything top of the line in terms of production, and it allows us to stake our claim and grow our brand.”

    WSW Ignition will air on Tuesday, September 8 on Spike.

    McMahon Announces WSW Championships

    NEW YORK - Shane McMahon announced the three divisions and championships that will be competed for in his new company WSW: WSW World Championship, WSW World Tag Team Championship, and WSW Television Championship.

    "Throughout the history of this sport, there have been many competitors that have stepped foot in the ring, but there is an elite fraternity that have become World Champions," McMahon said. "The WSW World Championship represents the best in the world, and we will crown our first champion through an eight man tournament that will begin on our debut edition of Ignition on September 8."

    When asked about the WSW Television Championship, McMahon stated, "The Television Champion will have to be a workhorse who is prepared to fight, as the person who holds this title will defend it each week. The WSW Television Championship is a powerful crown, as twenty consecutive, successful defenses will grant the champion a shot at the WSW World Championship."

    McMahon was also very excited about the tag team division. "Tag team wrestling is one of the lost arts of this business, and WSW will bring it back to the forefront. WSW will showcase the best tag teams in the world, and there will be no doubt that the WSW World Tag Team Champions will be the best in professional wrestling."

    WSW Ignition will debut September 8 on Spike.

    Participants Announced For WSW World Title Tournament

    NEW YORK - Just over a month away from WSW's debut, the participants in the World Title Tournament were announced today. The bracket was released on WSW's official website and social media sites. The tournament will begin on the inaugural broadcast of Ignition on September 8. The winner of the tournament will be crowned the first ever WSW World Champion.

    World Title Tournament Bracket.JPG

    "This tournament will be a grueling affair, and the last man remaining will truly be worthy of being called the World Champion and holding the WSW World Championship," WSW owner Shane McMahon said. "The wrestlers selected for this tournament are the best in the world at their craft, and each man can stand atop the mountain as World Champion."

    When asked about the mystery surrounding the final entrant to the tournament, McMahon stated "All our cards haven't been played yet. We are still negotiating with talent around the world, and there is a big name acquisition that will be announced when the time is ready."

    Anticipation for WSW is high, as the company has signed a national television deal with Spike and a deal to broadcast six specials a year on the globally popular Netflix. With these factors in mind, let the rumors and speculation of just who this big name acquisition is begin.

    WSW will debut September 8 on Spike with the debut of its weekly series Ignition.

    Here's something that I've wondered about for a while regarding the Fantasy booking threads.

    Why does everyone put together these press conferences, and fake website articles and even literature about these promotions. I saw one where Jim Cornette had a conversation on the phone from his living room.

    World Series of Wreslting has been going on for a while now. Hasn't been one card yet.

    If I were you I'd just focus on the product. I would have put the very first show in the first post. Why wait?

    WSW Ignition
    Center Stage Atlanta
    September 8, 2015


    At 9:00 PM EST the WSW signature airs. We then fade into a sold out Center Stage Atlanta where all eyes are immediately drawn to the huge video screen on stage. Two vertical LED boards stand adjacent to the giant screen. An elevated stage runs all the way to ring. The ring features a blue mat with the WSW logo, red ring ropes, and black turnbuckles. The ring posts and steps are black and black mats cover the floor around ringside. A black guard rail surrounds the ring side area.

    Justin Roberts stands at ringside with a microphone.


    Justin: “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the owner of World Series Wrestling, Mr. Shane McMahon.”

    The camera pans to the ring where Shane McMahon is standing with a microphone in hand. McMahon looks immaculate in a navy blue suit. He smiles as the cheers swell around Center Stage and he looks around at the fans.

    Shane: “Ladies and gentlemen……..WELCOME TO WSW!”

    The crowd explodes into cheers, and as is typical with wrestling crowds, a “WSW” chants loudly emerges.

    Shane: “My name is Shane McMahon and as Justin said, I am the owner of World Series Wrestling. It is an honor to stand before this sold out crowd here in Atlanta, Georgia and in the homes of millions on Spike! (he pauses again to look around at the crowd) I’m not here tonight to talk about symbolism and new eras, I’m here to announce that WSW is here to ring the freaking bell and let the whole world know that WE ARE HERE!

    The crowd explodes in cheers again, and “WSW” chants start up again.

    Shane: “This is a special night, and I’m here to make a promise. That promise is simple; WSW will present the best professional wrestling in the world TODAY! Tonight, we MAKE HISTORY!

    We cut to the Ignition opening set to the official theme of Ignition, “The Outsiders” by Eric Church.

    We then cut back to Center Stage where pyro ignites on the stage and the crowd roars! Mauro Ranallo’s voice booms on commentary.


    Mauro: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Ignition and the inception of World Series Wrestling!”

    We pan to the announce desk—located on the right side on the stage. Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson proudly sit at the desk.

    Mauro: My name is Mauro Ranallo, and to my left sits a former All-American wrestler at the University of Oregon and one of the most controversial figures in mixed martial arts history, Chael Sonnen. And to my right sits one of the finest professional wrestlers to ever step foot in the ring, a founding member of the legendary Four Horsemen….Arn Anderson! Gentlemen, not only is tonight our debut, tonight we begin the journey to crown the first ever WSW World Champion.

    Chael: “The World Title Tournament begins tonight Mauro! Eight men will enter and then the war is on. Becoming a world champion immortalizes an individual, and the road to immortality begins tonight!”

    Arn: “Let’s not forget that the bracket has been released, but only seven competitors have been confirmed. We don’t know who that eighth and final entrant is.”

    Mauro: “Perhaps we find out tonight. This much we do know. We will see first round action of the World Title Tournament. Tonight, Low Ki takes on “The Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm and in our main event; Austin Aries squares off against “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles. The rules are simple, win and advance, or lose and be eliminated.”

    As Mauro talks, graphics appear on the screen to highlight the World Title Tournament bracket.

    The bell rings and Justin Roberts stands in the ring to introduce the first match in WSW history.


    Justin: “The following contest is an International Three Way Dance set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    Match One: International Three Way Dance – Fenix vs. Matt Sydal vs. PJ Black

    The inaugural WSW contest is a three way dance to highlight the international diversity and different wrestling styles that are featured in WSW. Fenix makes his way down to the ring first and is treated to the streamer toss by the capacity crowd at Center Stage who are excited to see the Mexican luchador. Matt Sydal jumps around on stage to a loud pop representing the United States and PJ Black comes out representing his native South Africa.

    The three men exchange a slap of hands inside the ring as the bell rings as a sign of mutual respect. The three then quickly jump into a fast paced sequence of counters/reversals/arm drags/hip tosses ending a standoff that earns a loud round of applause from the crowd. The three begin another fast paced sequence, until Fenix goes for a jumping roundhouse that Sydal ducks and connects with PJ Black flush. Fenix then uses a flurry of quick strikes on Sydal with chops and kicks till he takes Sydal down with a tornado DDT from the corner. Black and Sydal roll out to the floor to recover, but it doesn’t last long as Fenix bounds to the top and comes off with a twisting corkscrew crossbody to take out both men on the floor!

    Fenix tries to keep the momentum and rolls Sydal back into the ring. He goes for a springboard from the apron, but PJ Black grabs his foot and pulls him down, causing him to crash into the apron hard. Black then chops away on Fenix…but Sydal hits the ropes with a head of steam and crashes into Black with a baseball slide that sends Black crashing into the guardrail. Sydal then quickly transitions on the apron and takes out Fenix with an Asai Moonsault! Sydal poses for the crowd on the floor, as bodies are all over the floor in this fast paced demolition derby.
    Sydal rolls both men back into the ring drops Fenix with a Russian Leg Sweep. He goes for the cover, but Black breaks it up. Black and Sydal go one on one with Black getting the better of the exchange hitting a beautiful tilt-a-whirl head scissors. Black immediately gets to his feet and takes down Sydal with a brutal running knee strike. Black with cover………..but Fenix breaks it up with a kick. Black and Fenix then trade strikes. Black tries for another tilt-a-whirl headscissors…but Fenix counters by dropping him down face first to the canvas with a slam.

    Sydal lands a dropkick to the side of Fenix’s head and tries to pin Fenix with a variety of rollups, but he can’t pin the masked luchador. Sydal decides to take another route and sends Fenix crashing into the turnbuckles with a reverse powerbomb. Sydal turns around and walks into a discus elbow from PJ Black that draws ooohhhs from the crowd due to the velocity and violence of it. Black sees his opportunity and perches Fenix on the top rope. Black goes for a hurricanrana…..but Fenix blocks……………….and powerbombs PJ Black onto Matt Sydal!

    Fenix then leaps to the top and comes off with a flipping corkscrew senton onto both men for the pin……………and the win!

    Fenix gets his hand raised high as the crowd cheers. Fenix stands on the turnbuckles and poses as he has accomplished history, winning the first ever bout in WSW.

    Mauro Ranallo sends things backstage to Todd Keneley who is standing with “The Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm.

    Todd: “Thanks so much Mauro. My guest at this time is “The Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm. James you have a long and storied career, tonight the next chapter begins, as you start your quest for the WSW World Championship. What are your thoughts on this tournament?”

    James: “Hell Todd, I’ve been riding up and down the roads for years now, always looking for the next match, the next fight, the next badge of honor to pin to my chest. I’m not as young as I used to be, but I know I have one last fight in me….a little bit left in the tank to claim the ultimate glory and become a World Champion. You see Todd, when you’ve been doing this as long as I have you realize that this is a business that’s not always going to love you the way you love it….but you keep coming back for that one shining moment where you cement your legacy. Tonight’s that chance for me so you know what that means(he takes a swig of his beer)……Low Ki, sorry ‘bout your damn luck.”
    The camera cuts back to the ring where Justin Roberts makes his introductions.

    Justin: “The following contest is a first round match in the WSW World Title Tournament and is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    Match Two: WSW World Title Tournament Round 1 – Low Ki vs. “The Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm

    Low Ki makes his way down to the ring first with his trademark focused stare. The announcers discuss how Low Ki denied an opportunity to talk tonight to stay focused on his match. James Strom then comes out to a big pop from the Atlanta crowd.

    The bell rings as both men stand on opposite sides of the ring. Storm leans against the corner while Low Ki crouches down in a low fighters stance ready to strike. The two men circle around each other and grapple with a collar and elbow tie up. Storm tries to use his power advantage to overtake Low Ki and ground him with superior leverage, but Low Ki continues to avoid the attack with his speed.

    Low Ki uses his trademark quick striking stills to pepper Storm, keeping Storm at a distance. Storm grows frustrated and blindly charges with a clothesline attempt, but that plays right into what Low Ki wants…allowing Low Ki to duck and start delivering wicked leg kicks. Storm eventually falls to his knees and Ki delivers a hard kick to the chest…..the kicks are echoing off the walls of Center Stage. Ki winds up for a kick to the head, but Storm ducks and rolls out to the floor. Storm hobbles around the ring and checks his mouth for any loose teeth.

    Low Ki backs into the corner as Storm slowly walks up the ring steps and reenters the ring. Storm charges in again for a lock up, but delivers a knee to the midsection instead. Storm then turns to his barroom style brawling to land heavy blows to the smaller Low Ki. Storm scoops Low Ki up and looks for a powerslam, but Low Ki slides out and dropkicks Storm into the corner. Low Ki then charges across the ring looking for the Tidal Crush (cartwheel kick), but Storm blocks it and crotches Ki on the top rope. Storm then grabs Low Ki and yanks him down to the canvas with a hangman’s neckbreaker. Storm covers……………………but Low Ki kicks out.

    Storm with the advantage now shifts to his game plan to ground Low Ki, locking in a variety of submissions. Low Ki refuses to stay grounded and begins to land kicks from a variety of angels. Storm refuses to release the holds……..gritting his teeth and taking the pain till finally Low Ki lands his a kick that catches Storm between the eyes causing him to drop the hold.

    Both men lay on the canvas catching their breath. Both rise to their feet at the same time…….Low Ki tries for a leaping knee strike, but Storm catches him and lifts him up on his shoulders. Low Ki is quicker though and rolls through for a pin attempt…………..But Storm kicks out! Low Ki nails several hard forearms to the face of Storm, pulling him up to his feet just to start chopping away at his chest. Low Ki sends Storm back down with a double chop to the sides of Storm’s neck. Low Ki heads up to the top……………and comes off looking for the Warriors Way (double foot stomp),………………………………………………………….but Storm rolls out of the way! Low Ki rolls through. James Storm tries to attack but he’s slower getting to his feet from the leg kicks, and Low Ki sends him down again with a dropkick to the knees. Low Ki then nails a running boot to the side of Storm’s head sending him down. The speed of Ki is just too much for James Storm.

    Low Ki spreads the legs of James Storm and starts landing a series of stomps to the inside of Storm’s left leg. Storm cries out in pain as the intensity of Ki is felt with vicious stomp after stomp. Low Ki then turns Storm over and locks in a single leg crab on Storm. The referee is in perfect position, as Low Ki cranks back on the leg of Storm. Storm screams out in pain as he inches himself to the ropes. Ki pulls back hard on the leg and Strom cries out again, he reaches his hand up……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… ..


    and it falls on the bottom rope calling for the rope break.

    Low Ki cranks back till the referee gets to 4 on his 5 Count. Storm crawls himself to the corner where he sits slumped in pain. Low Ki crouches down again and charges looking for a running low dropkick………but Storm ducks and rolls to the apron causing Low Ki to fly through the bottom and second turnbuckle and crotch himself on the steel ring post. Both men lay in pain and struggle to get to their feet………….both men rise at count of 8………………………………and Storm connects with Closing Time (double knee facebreaker) out of NO WHERE! He covers…………………..





    But Low Ki kicks out! Storm flops to the canvas in exhaustion and frustration. The veteran Storm crawls to the ropes and uses them to help stand up. Storm is hobbled with the vicious assault to his left leg. Storm limps over to Low Ki who attacks with strikes from his knees. Ki rises to his feet as the two men exchange blows. Low Ki hits three leg kicks that send Storm down again. Low Ki hits the ropes and charges across the ring.............................he leaps and springboards off the middle rope looking for a flying kick………………………………………………………..



    LAST CALL SUPERKICK! Storm connects with the Last Call with his right leg to midair Low Ki who drops to the canvas like a sack of bricks. James Storm falls over Low Ki in a cover………………………………1…………………………………2……………………………………3! James Storm wins and advances!

    James Storm gets his hand raised and he collapses back down in pain from his leg. James Storm rolls out to the apron and sits down as the camera gets a shot of the veteran smirking through the pain, knowing he has advanced in the World Title Tournament.

    Mauro Ranallo then introduces a video package on “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles. The video begins with a shot of a rundown trailer park and a title graphic tells us this is “Gainesville, Georgia.” As the camera pans down the rundown streets with rusted bicycles, broken satellite dishes, and worn out window unit AC units we hear AJ Styles voice.

    AJ: “My name is AJ Styles and this is where I come from. These streets….these trailers….never had a dollar to my name. My whole life I was told that I would never amount to anything. The only thing you can do in an environment like that, is out work everyone……..be relentless.”

    A series of pictures showcasing the highlights of AJ Styles career flash on the screen. Shots of Styles on the Georgia independent scene, shots of Styles winning the first ever X-Division Title, shots of Styles as NWA, TNA, and NJPW World Champion. The camera cuts to the NWA Wildside arena—a dirty, small indy arena in Cornelia, Georgia. The camera pans up to the ring which is dimly lit. AJ Styles is sitting on a chair in the center of the ring with a hoodie pulled up over his head. The camera pans slowly to a close up of his face, where a bearded AJ looks up and speaks directly into the camera.

    AJ: “They said I was a nothing then……..Today, I am the best professional wrestler in the world, and I will become the WSW World Champion.”

    The video package cuts back to Center Stage where Todd Keneley is standing in the interview area.

    Todd: “My guest at this time is the man that will face AJ Styles in the main event tonight. Please welcome Austin Aries (Aries walks up) Austin, we just saw a powerful piece on “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles, what are your thoughts on your opponent?”

    Austin: “Everywhere I’ve gone in my career, the shadow of the great AJ Styles has always loomed. You know there is no doubt in my mind that AJ is a helluva wrestler, but there is also no doubt in my mind that “A-Double” Austin Aries is pretty damn awesome too. Todd, I’m the true “Dirty Heel” and “The Originator” and after tonight, I will be one step closer to my next title….the first ever “WSW World Champion.” We are gonna TEAR the house down tonight, and give the people a show like they’ve never seen on Spike before. But WITHOUT A DOUBT…..at the end of the night…..when the dust clears……(Scottish accent) “there can only be one.” And it will be me, Austin Aries!

    The camera cuts back inside Center Stage where “Rebel Road” by Big Smo hits the speakers and Andrew Everett and Trevor Lee, The Carolina Outlaws, make their way down the elevated stage to the ring. They smirk cockily around at the crowd and Trevor Lee grabs a microphone.

    Trevor: “Atlanta, Georgia………………say HELLO to the greatest tag team in the world today………The Carolina Outlaws!”

    Lee’s introduction is met with a tepid reaction from the Center Stage crowd who begin to boo the duo.

    Andrew: “We hail from the great state of North Carolina, and we are here to kick ass, drink beer, and entertain the ladies at the Pink Pony.”

    The boos have now become steadily louder.

    Andrew: “Now that we have the introductions completed, we can get down to business. We couldn’t miss this night for nothing. This is a historic night! You see, right here tonight on the first edition of Ignition is the first ever Carolina Outlaws tag team challenge. This challenge is open to anyone who wants to make a name for themselves…………..if you think you’ve got what it takes, come on down!”

    The boos are the loudest they have been all night and The Carolina Outlaws smirk and cockily walk around the ring as several seconds pass.

    Andrew: “No one?! (laughs) That’s what I expected. Y’all Atlanta ass clowns don’t deserve to see us wrestle.”

    The boos roar as Trevor Lee takes back the microphone.

    Trevor: “Consider The Carolina Outlaws OFFICIALLY 1-0. Undefeated and unbeaten. Let’s roll Andrew, it’s still dollar dances at the club.”

    The Carolina Outlaws go to leave the ring when……………..”War of Nerves” blares out and……………………………………………………


    THE YOUNG BUCKS walk out on stage! The crowd goes nuts for Matt and Nick Jackson! The Carolina Outlaws stop dead in their tracks. Matt has a microphone.


    Matt: “Did somebody ask for the best?! Because the best……HAS JUST ARRIVED! Look, I’m not quite sure who you two jokers are, but I know that randoms are always invited to a SUPERKICK PARTY!”

    The crowd roars in approval as The Young Bucks charge at the The Carolina Outlaws and attack! The Young Bucks have answered The Carolina Outlaws challenge. The quick striking Young Bucks are blowing the roof off the building as they issue strike after strike. The Young Bucks clothesline The Carolina Outlaws over the top to the floor. Without missing a beat, the Jacksons hit the ropes and then FLY through the ropes with stereo suicide dropkicks! The crowd is in a frenzy as The Young Bucks hop back into the ring where they strike their trademark pose.

    The Carolina Outlaws stall around on the outside till Nick Jackson picks up a microphone.


    Nick: “Ring the damn bell!”

    The Carolina Outlaws hop onto the apron cautiously as the bell rings. This match is official!

    Match Three: The Young Bucks vs. The Carolina Outlaws

    The Carolina Outlaws enter the ring and square off toe to toe with The Young Bucks. The Bucks jaw with the Outlaws, the Outlaws slap them across the face. Matt and Nick respond with chops and the two teams chop away at each other till things break down into a fast paced sequence with all four men in the ring landing kicks, leg lariats, elbow strikes and drop kicks.

    The referee struggles to gain control of the action as Nick Jackson and Trevor Lee are now slugging away with each other on the apron. Matt Jackson and Andrew Everett dropkick their respective opponent off the apron to the floor and spring off the ropes and both men hit somersault planchas over the top rope to the floor!

    The action returns to the ring where Matt Jackson and Andrew Everett go at it. Matt takes Andrew down with a gordbuster and a cover……………………….but Everett kicks out. Nick Jackson blind tags in and takes Everett down with a springboard missile dropkick as Everett runs the ropes. The crowd loves The Young Bucks and Nick Jackson soaks it up too much and stalls too long, allowing Everett to drop him with a spinning crucifix toss. Everett tags in Trevor Lee who climbs to the top turnbuckle……………stalls……………………..and connects with Tar Heel Stomp (double foot stomp to the shoulders) of a standing Nick Jackson! This brings Nick to his knees and Trevor Lee screams “Superkick Party” and nails a superkick to a kneeling Nick Jackson!

    Lee covers………………………………………………………….


    But Matt dives in to break the pin up! Trevor Lee is furious and grabs the referee in frustration. Trevor Lee tags in Andrew Everett……who runs across the ring and punches Matt Jackson off to the floor. The Carolina Outlaws grab Nick and set up for The White Lightning (double vertical suplex dropped into a powerbomb)………….but Nick counters with a double DDT!

    Matt is back on the apron and is jumping up and down waiting for a tag! Nick slowly crawls over the two opponents in the ring and reaches for a tag…………………………………Andrew Everett stirs……………………………


    but Nick dives for the tag! Matt leaps into the ring and lays into The Carolina Outlaws with a flurry of strikes. Matt takes down Trevor Lee with a hurricanrana……Lee rolls to the floor. Matt takes the legal Andrew Everett and plants him with a rope hung DDT!

    Matt goes for the cover, but the referee is distracted by Trevor Lee who has climbed to the top rope…….but Nick Jackson pulls down, crotching him on the top. Nick then draws a “Holy Sh*t” chant when he takes Trevor Lee off the top with a super cutter!

    The cheers swell…..the Bucks look at each other…………………………..”Super Kick Party”……………………………….Nick nearly takes off Trevor Lee’s head with a super kick. The Young Bucks then ping pong Andrew Everett back and forth with superkicks till Matt pulls Everett’s limp body down for the pin……………………………………..and the win!

    The Young Bucks stand victorious in the first tag team match in WSW history as highlights of the match air. The camera then pans up to the stage where the announce team rundown the events from tonight.

    Mauro: “What a first night it has been here on WSW Ignition. Still to come our main event between AJ Styles and Austin Aries. But tonight gentlemen we have seen Fenix soar in an international three way, James Storm valiantly advance in World Title Tournament, and the debut of The Young Bucks here in WSW. Next week is shaping up to be an amazing night as well Chael.”

    Chael: “That’s right Mauro, as the World Title Tournament will roll on with first round matchups. Next week we will see Nick Aldis in action, and a highly anticipated matchup between two of the most popular and talented luchadores of all time, Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Alberto El Patron with so much on the line!”

    Arn: “Guys I want to know who Nick Aldis will be facing. Remember, the identity of the final entrant in this Tournament has yet to be revealed.”

    Mauro: “You’re absolutely right Arn, and think of the challenge that presents for Aldis as he prepares. I want to hit on a point you brought up Chael. Next week we will see Rey Mysterio Jr.—perhaps the most famous luchador to ever wrestle here in the United States—take on Alberto El Patron in a first round World Title Tournament match. That is sure to be a match that will draw international attention.”

    The camera then fades to a video package on Alberto El Patron.

    The camera fades to a huge villa resting under a crystal blue sky and blazing sun. A pair of expensive Italian leather shoes are seen walking down a marble hallway. The shoes continue to walk down the hall passing expensive pieces of art work. A Spanish guitar strums lightly in the background as the figure passes through a huge set of glass doors to stand in front of an immaculate swimming pool.

    A gorgeous Latin woman, wearing a revealing bikini emerges from the water and makes her way out of the water. She walks over and kisses the figure on the cheek before walking off. The camera pulls back to reveal the figure is Alberto El Patron wearing an perfect suit. He smiles as his eyes follow the bikini clad woman. He then reaches down and picks up a bottle of tequila off a poolside table and pours some into a glass. Alberto picks up the glass toasts the camera


    Alberto: “It is good to be king.”

    He takes a swig of the tequila and he winks………………….and the camera pans out.

    We come back to Center Stage where Justin Roberts announces our main event.


    Justin: “Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit and is a first round match in the World Title Tournament.”

    Match Four: WSW World Title Tournament Round 1 – Austin Aries vs. “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles

    Austin Aries makes his way down the ring first carrying himself with his typical cocky demeanor. The announce team runs down Aries accomplishments.

    Sparks rain down on the stage from above as AJ Styles makes his entrance to a tremendous pop. AJ walks down to the ring with a look of pure focus on his face.


    The two men who have been familiar combatants in the past approach each other and lock up. AJ gets the advantage and pushes Aries back into the corner, where Aries grabs the ropes for a break. As Styles breaks, Aries boots him in the midsection and lands some shots to the back. Aries then tries to grind Styles with submissions, but the offense is short lived, as Styles hits a back suplex to break up a side headlock. Styles follows that up with a German suplex…..and another………and another, this time releasing Aries who flies across the ring. Aries rolls out to the floor clutching the back of his head!

    Styles grows tired of waiting on Aries and charges across the ring………but he hooks the top rope as he dives over and lands on the apron as Aries had been baiting him. Styles nails a hard boot to the face from the apron and then hits his famous flip inverse DDT from the apron to the floor to get the crowd in a frenzy! “AJ” chants break out in Center Stage. Styles rolls Aries back in the ring and covers………………………………but Aries just does kick out. AJ looks to end this early and sets up for the Styles Clash, but Aries blocks...Styles tries again, but again Aries blocks. Aries—with his head between Styles’ legs—charges forward sending Styles back first into the corner.

    Styles charges out, Aries dropkicks him back into the corner. Aries then somersaults to the opposite corner, leaps to the middle rope and connects on a back elbow to the head of a charging Styles drawing a mixture of boos/respectful applause. Aries sees an opening and stomps on Styles before hitting his pendulum elbow…………..a cover….and a 2 count. Aries resorts to more stomps and positions Styles in the center of the ring, he vaults to the top rope and connects with a beautiful flying elbow. Aries covers again………………..but Styles gets his shoulders up!

    Aries yells at the referee as he picks Styles up by the hair and lays into him with forearm strikes. Aries then clotheslines Styles over the top to the floor. AJ lays in a heap on the floor trying to catch his breath as Austin Aries climbs to the top……………………….Aries leaps and catches Styles with a flying double axe handle to the floor! Aries leaps to the top of the steel steps and begins a “Macho Man” chant that the crowd quickly picks up on. Aries rolls Styles back into the ring and gets him up for the brainbuster……………but Styles reverses into a rollup………………………………..

    Austin Aries just kicks out!......................But Aries quickly gets to his feet and sets up for the brainbuster again, but Styles counters with a Northern Lights Suplex that sends Aries into the corner hard and hanging in the Tree of Woe. Styles collects himself and declares open season on Aries and lights his chest up with kicks. A running knee connects and Aries falls from the Tree of Woe grasping his chest.

    Styles heads to the top turnbuckle, but in a desperation move, Austin Aries shoves the referee into the ropes causing Styles to crotch himself. Aries mounts the corner and lands some shots on Styles. He tries for a superplex, but Styles counters and looks for a super-Styles Clash…..Aries backdrops out of it, but AJ lands on his feet from the top and crushes Aries with a wicked Pele Kick! Styles grabs Aries and goes for the Styles Clash, but Aries grabs the middle rope desperation. Styles tries to pull Aries off as hard as he can, but Austin Aries slips from Styles clutches and escapes between his legs.

    Aries lands a kick to the back of the knees and then locks on Last Chancery………………….Aries has it in tight!.........................Styles screams in pain, as Aries pulls tight………………………………………………………………………….

    Styles fights………………………………………………………………………….and fights……………………………………………………


    And reaches the bottom rope! Aries can’t believe it! Styles just does escape the deadly submission move but the damage has been done. Aries signals the finish and goes for the Brainbuster again………………….and he gets Styles up!


    But Styles kicks his legs and fights some more to try and make Aries off balance……..Aries can’t keep him vertical and drops him gut first over the top rope instead. The two men who have battled many times along the road that led to tonight are going move for move with each other. Styles gets to the apron and Aries goes to suplex him back into the ring, but Styles lands two shoulderblocks through the ropes and flips over Aries’ back to get in the ring…but in doing so he hooks the arms and lifts Aries into a crucifix!

    AJ Styles spikes Austin Aries down to the canvas with a Razors Edge!! Styles grabs Aries’ legs on the recoil and rips him up off the mat…………………..


    STYLES CLASH!


    1…………………2…………………………….3!

    AJ Styles wins the match and advances to the next round of the World Title Tournament after a grueling match with Austin Aries. Styles celebrates in the ring as the crowd cheers for their native Georgian.



    After a moment of celebration, the party is ended when suddenly……..



    Cannon blasts sound out…………and the “1812 Overture” plays at full blast!




    Styles looks on with confusion from the ring, and so does the


    crowd……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… …………………………………………………………………………………..



    till they explode when………………………………………………………………………………………





    CLAUDIO CASTAGNOLI walks out on the stage!!!!!



    http://images1.phoenixnewtimes.com/i...ays_center.jpg



    People jump up and down at the sight of Claudio Castagnoli who is clad in a suit. Styles looks on shocked as Castagnoli points towards the ring and motions with his hands around his waist for a belt!



    Chael: “He wants Styles. He wants the belt! Claudio Castagnoli wants to become Champion!”

    Mauro: “What this means, I do not know! What I do know is, CLAUDIO CASTAGNOLI IS IN WSW!”

    The first edition of WSW Ignition goes off the air with Claudio Castagnoli standing on the stand pounding his chest and raising a triumphant first in the air!

    WSW Ignition
    Center Stage Atlanta
    September 15, 2015

    A quick recap video of last week’s premier edition of Ignition airs featuring highlights of James Storm and AJ Styles advancing in the WSW World Title Tournament. We also see highlights of the dramatic debut of Claudio Castagnoli.

    The Ignition intro video set to “The Outsiders” by Eric Church airs and we cut to Center Stage, where pyro EXPLODES on stage! The crowd goes wild with “WSW” chants filling the building.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Ladies and gentlemen welcome to Atlanta and Center Stage. We wrote a new chapter in this storied venue’s history last week with the premier of Ignition, and we continue to forge our path tonight.

    Arn Anderson – “And we’re going to do it with a big time main event. Rey Mysterio Jr. squares off with Alberto El Patron in a first round match of the WSW World Title Tournament.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Guys we saw AJ Styles and James Storm advance in the World Title Tournament last week, but the news that has turned the professional wrestling world on its head is the appearance of Claudio Castagnoli. Tonight, we find out why he’s here.”

    In the ring, Justin Roberts stands and announces our first contest of the evening.

    Justin Roberts – “The following contest is set a tag team match set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    Team Dragon Gate, Genki Horiguchi and Masato Yoshino make their way down to the ring first with an intense look in their eyes.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Remember fans, on Ignition there is a ten minute time limit for all non-title matches, and a thirty minute time limit for all matches with a championship on the line.”

    The music of The Young Bucks hits, and Center Stage goes nuts for Matt and Nick Jackson who made an explosive debut last week. The Young Bucks strike their trademark pose in the ring before heading to their corner.

    Match One: Team Dragon Gate vs. The Young Bucks

    The bell rings and Masato Yoshino and Nick Jackson start things off. The two go back and forth with some quick strikes and counters with Yoshino getting the better of the exchange and drawing respectful applause. The two quickly lock up again, this time with Nick Jackson getting the better of the exchange and getting the applause from the crowd. The two men go at it for a third lock up and rip through a breakneck pace of reversals, counters, and strikes till Nick Jackson nails a picture perfect dropkick on Yoshino who was bouncing off the ropes.

    Nick tags in his brother and The Young Bucks run wild. The Bucks drop Yoshino with some double team moves including a double team inzuguri. Matt lands a wheelbarrow slam and Nick springs off the ropes looking for a high impact move……


    But Genki Horiguchi pulls his tag team partner from the ring to the floor. Nick lands on his feet off the ropes. Horiguchi trys to rally his partner on the floor but The Young Bucks don’t wait……..and nail the Crazy Dive (dropkick through the ropes by Matt and a suicide dive by Nick) to crash into Team Dragon Gate, who is sprawled out on the floor! The Young Bucks pose on the apron to loud cheers!

    Masato Yoshino slowly crawls back into the ring where Matt goes back to work. After some quick offense, Matt Jackson goes for a superkick to end it, but Yoshino ducks and counters with a Koppo Kick! The kick catches Matt Jackson flush and drops him. Yoshino crawls over to his corner and makes the tag to Genki Horiguchi who comes in with a springboard elbow drop he covers……….

    Matt Jackson kicks out. Genki Horiguchi is quick on the attack with chops, forearms, and kicks. He whips Matt across the ring and lands a wicked charging double knee splash to the chest. Horiguchi is feeling the momentum and lands a devastating duo of kicks to the chest and almost punts Matt’s head into the third row with a CRUSHING kick. Cover…………


    Matt Jackson just kicks out! Horiguchi tags back in Masato Yoshino….Horiguchi puts Matt Jackson in a pendulum swing, and Yoshino hits a dropkick to the side of the head. Yoshino quickly sprints to the middle rope, springboards, and hits a moonsault. Cover……………………….

    But Matt Jackson kicks out again! He just won’t stay down! Yoshino is bouncing off the ropes at a lightning quick pace dropping Jackson with clotheslines and leg lariats. He tags back in Horiguchi. Yoshino lifts Matt Jackson up on his shoulders while Genki Horiguchi heads to the top…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………


    But Matt counters with a reverse hurricanrana sending Masato Yoshino crashing into the corner and causing Horiguchi to get crotched on the top! Matt Jackson inches his way across the canvas to his corner…………………………………………………………………………………………….

    And he makes the tag! Nick Jackson hops into the ring fired up. Masato Yoshino tries to attack…………………………………..

    SUPERKICK! Masato Yoshino is dropped with a trademark Young Bucks superkick from Nick Jackson……..the legal man however is Genki Horiguchi who dives off the top and spikes Nick Jackson with a tornado DDT! Without hesitation, Horiguchi pops to his feet and stalks his prey…….he scoops Nick Jackson up for the Beach Break (belly to back piledriver). He has him in position…………………………………………



    But Nick Jackson escapes………………………………………………


    SUPERKICK!

    Nick Jackson pops Genki Horiguchi in the face with a superkick………………………………..SUPERKICK! Matt Jackson enters the ring to land another devastating superkick to Masato Yoshino. Nick looks at his brother and motions to the top, The Young Bucks climb up to opposite corners………..

    And nail stereo 450 splashes! Double covers……….and the Young Bucks win!

    Winners: The Young Bucks

    The crowd cheers and chants of “That Was Awesome” are heard. The Young Bucks pose in the ring celebrating their win.



    …………………..Till they are blindsided by The Carolina Outlaws. Andrew Everett and Trevor Lee run down from the back and attack the Young Bucks. They beat down the Jackson brothers and drop each brother with their finisher White Lightning (double vertical suplex dropped into a powerbomb). Boos rain down on the Carolina Outlaws as they stand over the fallen team.

    Everett and Lee look at each other and smile wickedly, they then drop both members of Team Dragon Gate with White Lighting. Bodies lay everywhere in the ring as The Carolina Outlaws look around at the carnage they have just caused. The smile and both men raise their arms, soaking in the boos.


    Commercials…..

    We return from commercial break and the music of Nick Aldis hits, and out comes the man formerly known as Magnus. The proud English wrestler makes his way down to the ring with an angry look on his face. Aldis gets in the ring and grabs a microphone.

    Nick Aldis – “I want to make one thing perfectly clear………..I will win the World Title Tournament, and I will become the first ever WSW World Champion. I am the champion that this company needs and the champion this company deserves. For Christ’s sake, look at me…………..I AM A GOD! And it looks like I’ve drawn the wildcard in this tournament……and I’ll be damned if I let a jackass from the hell hole of Switzerland walk in the backdoor and CHALLENGE ME! Castagnoli, you don’t deserve to be here, and you don’t deserve to be in this tournament, and I’m going to prove it to you RIGHT NOW, so get your ASS OUT HERE!

    Boos rain down on Nick Aldis as he paces back and forth fuming. The boos quickly turn to cheers with the sounds of cannon blasts and the 1812 Overture, as that marks the entrance of Claudio Castagnoli!

    Mauro Ranallo – There he is, the man who shocked the wrestling world by debuting last week on Ignition. Perhaps the best pure professional wrestler in the world today…..Claudio Castagnoli!

    Claudio Castagnoli is dressed to wrestle and he makes a beeline down the stage to the ring. Castagnoli quickly enters the ring and immediately gets into the face of Nick Aldis. The two men go nose to nose and start jawing with each other till Aldis slaps Castagnoli across the face!

    Castagnoli pauses for a moment as Aldis grins cockily. Castagnoli then EXPLODES with forearm shots and European Uppercuts that rock Aldis. Castagnoli keeps up the attack till he clotheslines Aldis over the top rope to the floor.

    Castagnoli reaches down and picks up the microphone in the ring.


    Claudio Castagnoli – “Ring the bell!”

    Match Two: WSW World Title Tournament (First Round) – Nick Aldis vs. Claudio Castagnoli

    The match is on and Nick Aldis takes his time walking around the ring rubbing his jaw. Claudio Castagnoli grows tired of waiting and heads to the outside where he lands more clubbing forearms. He throws Aldis back into the ring, but Aldis stomps him as he tries to slide into the ring himself. Like a scalded dog, Aldis lands ferocious stomp after stomp. Aldis throws Castagnoli into a corner and lands several striking combos and punches…..but Castagnoli fights back with strikes of his own! The two men trade haymakers in the center of the ring! Back and forth…..till Aldis lands a kick low in the midsection. Aldis then drops Castagnoli with a spinning neckbreaker.

    Aldis takes things back to the floor to continue to soften up with the man from Switzerland by throwing him into the steel guardrail a few times. Aldis goes for a whip into the steel steps, but Castagnoli stops and drills Aldis with a spinebuster on the floor!

    Both men lay on the outside as the referee’s count hits seven……….


    Finally they begin to stir and roll into the ring at the same time………both men get to their feet at the same time. Aldis lands another boot low to the midsection and sets up for a powerbomb…………..but Castagnoli counters and drives a hard knee to the face! Castagnoli then grabs Aldis and hits a gutwrench suplex………………….

    And another………………………..

    And another! A trio of gutwrench suplexes! Castagnoli then motions to the crowd who jumps in anticipation………………………………………BIG SWING! Castagnoli gets 10 revolutions before letting go! The crowd is in a frenzy as Castagnoli grabs the legs of Nick Aldis and sets up for the Sharpshooter…………………


    But Aldis spits in the face of Castagnoli to momentarily get away. Aldis lands more blows to the midsection of Castagnoli and clips his knee to take him down. Aldis then slinks to his feet and stomps down on Castagnoli. He grabs the legs of Castagnoli and sets up for the King’s Lynn Clover………………..

    But Castagnoli surprises him with a school boy!...........................1

    2………………………………

    KICK OUT! Aldis just does escape the surprise pin attempt. Both men get to their feet at the same time…….and Castagnoli lands a wicked European Uppercut that nearly sends Aldis’ head flying. Aldis is dazed and swings with a wild clothesline attempt, but Castagnoli ducks and sends Aldis crashing down with a reverse STO. Castagnoli displays catlike quickness and gets to his feet. He grabs the legs of Nick Aldis………….crosses them……………………………and steps over!

    SHARPSHOOTER! The deadly submission is clinched on tight and there is nothing Nick Aldis can do but tap out!

    Winner: Claudio Castagnoli

    Claudio Castagnoli celebrates as the fans cheer loudly, and chants of “Claudio” break out. Castagnoli pounds his chest and holds an arm to the sky in triumph.

    Chael Sonnen – “He’s done it! What an impressive debut for Claudio Castagnoli!”

    Arn Anderson – “With this win, Castagnoli advances in the tournament and will square off with AJ Styles in the semi-final round.”

    Back from commercial, we cut to a video package of the streets of Atlanta, Georgia at night. A haze hangs over the streets and the ground is soaked from rain. The sounds of fists hitting a heavy bag are heard as the voice of Uhaa Nation narrates….

    Uhaa – “Welcome to Atlanta……………..my town.

    The camera cuts inside a gym where Uhaa Nation is sweated down and pounding on a heavy bag with fury.

    Uhaa – “For years I have been traveling the world…….Training……….Honing my craft………….relentlessly pursuing my goals.”

    The camera cuts to intense workout clips of Nation…..pounding the heavy bag, lifting weights, running on a tredmill set to a steep incline.

    Uhaa – “I have waited and waited for my opportunity to explode…….I will be the best professional wrestler in the world.”

    Uhaa explodes with a vertical on an insane box jump, and roars in triumph.

    Uhaa – “This is my time………………..I’m coming.”

    We fade back to Center Stage where the music of Shelton Benjamin hits.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    Shelton Benjamin slides into the ring and hits the turnbuckles to pose for the crowd…..

    The pulsing music of Uhaa Nation hits, and Uhaa Nation walks out onto the stage to a HUGE pop from the Center Stage crowd. Nation’s entrance is complete with pyro as he makes his big WSW debut.


    Match Three: Shelton Benjamin vs. Uhaa Nation

    The crowd begins to chant “Uhaa” in support of the hometown hero. Uhaa bounces himself off the ropes as Shelton walks towards the center of the ring…..and the two men lock up! Uhaa’s strength gives him the leverage advantage, but Shelton Benjamin’s still quick and uses his speed to stay just out of harms way. Benjamin continues to bounce off the ropes and use his speed until he eats a dropkick to the face from Nation. Benjamin immediately rolls out to the elevated ramp to catch his breath, but Uhaa Nation sprints off the ropes….leaps……………..and flies over the tope rope crashing into Benjamin!

    Uhaa gets to his feet and raises his arms high as the crowd explodes with “Uhaa” chants again. Nation throws Benjamin back into the ring. Uhaa whips Benjamin into the ropes and nails a leaping clothesline. Nation covers……………………….but Benjamin kicks out at 2!

    Uhaa whips Benjamin into the corner and charges……..he leaps for a splash, but Benjamin moves at the last second and Nation eats the turnbuckles. This is the opening that Shelton Benjamin needs and he goes to work with kicks and forearm strikes. Benjamin has Uhaa Nation trapped in the corner and lands a pair of corner splashes of his own! Benjamin has Nation dazed, and he takes him down with a big roundhouse kick to the side of the head! Benjamin covers………………………………..but Nation powers out. Benjamin drops a few knees down hard on the upper part of Uhaa’s chest. Shelton then leaps up to the top turnbuckle and poses………..he then jumps………………………..and EATS A SPEAR!

    Like a bolt of lightning Uhaa springs to his feet and roars as the crowd goes nuts. Shelton Benjamin lays in a heap on the canvas, nearly cut in half by the spear that ripped him out of midair. Uhaa then whips Benjamin into the corner and nails a flip splash! Uhaa is like a man possessed as he rips Benjamin up for a gorilla press slam……..he then dumps Benjamin down to the canvas and follows it with a standing moonsault.

    The Uhaa Combination (press slam and standing moonsault) is in full effect and it allows Uhaa Nation to cover for the pin……..and the WIN.

    Winner: Uhaa Nation

    Uhaa raises his arms in triumph after his impressive debut in WSW.

    Back from commercials we immediately see a shot of Justin Roberts in the ring, ready for our main event!

    Justin – “The following contest is a First Round matchup in the World Title Tournament set for one fall with a 10 minute time limit.”

    Rey Mysterio Jr.’s music hits and the masked luchador runs out on the stage for an entrance that is complete with pyro. The crowd swells with cheers for Mysterio who bounds down the elevated walkway, hops down to the floor and slaps hands with the fans at ringside. Mysterio finds a young fan at ringside sporting his mask, and he rubs heads with him. Mysterio is no doubt a hero and fan favorite to the WSW crowd.

    As Mysterio poses and waits in the ring, a voice is heard……


    Voice – “Un momento, por favor………”

    Just then the artist formerly known as Armando Alejandro Estrada walks out onto the stage in an immaculate suit……..

    Armando – “(chuckles) Listen to me! You may recognize me, but you do not know why I am here. My name is Armando Alejandro, and I am the agent to the greatest prize fighter in the world today, and an international combat sports god. WSW and this World Title Tournament represent an unconquered peak, and my client seeks to scale that mountain top on the journey towards immortality. Senors and senoritas, I present to you……….El Mejor Luchador Todo El Mundo………………………………..ALBERTO EL PATRON!”

    The sounds of a Spanish guitar rings out through Center Stage, and Alberto El Patron walks out onto the stage with his trademark scarf. Alberto shakes hands with Armando Alejandro and saunters down to the ring to cheers.

    El Patron gets in the ring and poses for the crowd wearing a confident and cocky smile. Armando Alejandro accompanies El Patron to the ring and makes his way around the ring eyeing his client.


    Match Four: WSW World Title Tournament (First Round) – Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Alberto El Patron (w/ Armando Alejandro)

    The two luchadors circle each other as the bell rings. In a show of respect, Mysterio offers a fist bump, which El Patron responds with. The crowd’s cheers grow and a buzz is around the building, as the Center Stage fans know that seeing these two men wrestle is a special moment.

    El Patron shoots in quickly and gets the waist of Mysterio. Mysterio throws elbows to escape and the two men run the ropes ducking clothesline attempts till Mysterio catches El Patron with a step up enziguri. El Patron backs off into a corner adjusting his jaw and the two men go at it again with a flurry of offense, each man trying to gain an advantage. Mysterio tries for another step up enziguri, but El Patron ducks and sends Mysterio down to the canvas violently with a wheelbarrow slam.

    El Patron then takes control grounding the high flyer with submission holds, trying to grind Mysterio down, much to the enjoyment of Armando Alejandro. Rey gets charged up by the crowd and begins to fight back….Mysterio starts a comeback and takes El Patron down with a 7 revolution tilt-a-whirl head scissors. El Patron quickly rolls out to the floor, but his breather is cut short as Mysterio dives through the ropes with a suicide dive that sends El Patron crashing into the guard rail!

    Armando Alejandro shouts at El Patron to get up, but Mysterio uses his environment and leaps off the steel steps and takes El Patron down with a hurricanrana on the floor! Mysterio takes things back into the ring and lands a springboard leg drop…...............................COVER……………………… ……….

    But El Patron kicks out. Mysterio flies around proving himself to be an innovator of offense. Armando Alejandro pounds his fist on the apron urging El Patron to fight back. Mysterio springs off the ropes and goes for another tilt-a-whirl head scissors attempt, but Alberto counters with a backbreaker out of desperation. Both men lay on the canvas, struggling to get to their feet…………..

    They get to their feet at the same time……..Mysterio ducks a big clothesline attempt, and springs off the middle rope looking for a crossbody………………………………but Alberto El Patron catches him and plants the masked luchador down hard with a swinging side slam. Alberto El Patron stays focused and drops Mysterio on the top turnbuckle. Alberto heads up as well and prepares for a superplex……………………………….he lifts Mysterio up……………………………………………………….



    But Mysterio reverses in midair and takes El Patron down with a super hangman’s neckbreaker! The crowd goes nuts as the bodies crash down to the canvas hard! Both men lay on the ground in a heap……….until Mysterio inches over and lays his arm over El Patron’s chest……….


    1……


    2……


    KICK OUT! Alberto El Patron kicks out! Mysterio puts his head down on the canvas in disbelief, and the crowd can’t believe it. Mysterio doesn’t waste time and hits his trademark droptoe hold sending El Patron’s head draping over the middle rope………

    Mysterio dials it up…………………………………………


    619! The 619 connects and El Patron’s body flops back to the canvas. The crowd’s cheers swell as Mysterio uses the ropes to pull himself up on the apron. He measures El Patron…………………………………..and springboards…………………………


    DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER from Alberto El Patron! A beautiful counter to a midair Mysterio who flops around in pain. El Patron covers…….



    But Mysterio kicks out at 2.99999999! Alberto can’t believe it! Alberto calls for the end and tries to lock in the Arm Bar, but Mysterio fights out of it leading to serious of near falls and pins………El Patron gets frustrated that he can’t get the Arm Bar locked in and attempts a super kick, but Mysterio ducks and lands a hard drop kick to the face!

    Mysterio heads up and quickly balances himself and flies off and connects with a flying crossbody!


    Into a cover…….

    2…..

    El Patron reverses the pin attempt!

    Alberto El Patron with the surprise pin counter gets the win and advances in the World Title Tournament!

    Winner: Alberto El Patron

    Armando Alejandro hops in the ring to celebrate with his client who survives and advances in the World Title Tournament. Rey Mysterio Jr. is distraught and pleads with the referee who explains what happens. Conceding he got beat, Mysterio looks at El Patron across the ring and offers his hand for a handshake.

    Alberto looks cautiously at the hand and at Armando Alejandro. After a tense few seconds, El Patron offers his hand and the two luchadors shake in the center of the ring. The crowd applauds their respect.




    Until El Patron nearly rips Mysterio’s head off with a clothesline………..


    Boos rain down as Alberto El Patron starts a beatdown on Mysterio. Alberto brutally lays into Mysterio with right hands and stomps...............he grabs the arm of Rey Mysterio Jr. and locks in the deadly Arm Bar!



    El Patron cranks back as Mysterio screams in pain.


    Mysterio is helpless as Alberto is unrelenting with the Arm Bar


    Mauro Ranallo – “Somebody has to stop this, or else Mysterio’s arm will be broken!”

    [I]WSW security members run down to try and help. El Patron finally lets go of the hold to push away several members of security.

    Mysterio is lifeless in the ring crying out in pain..........El Patron looks at the damage he just caused and slowly looks up at the camera with a wicked smile on his face.

    Armando Alejandro laughs as he reaches into his jacket pocket and pulls out a wad of $100 bills. Alejandro proceeds to rain the bills over the body of Mysterio as the crowd tears Center Stage up with boos and jeers.

    Alberto El Patron raises his arms in the air and smiles that evil smile at the camera as he stands over the severely injured Rey Mysterio Jr. as the camera fades on this week’s episode.

    Default Re: World Series Wrestling

    WSW Ignition
    Center Stage Atlanta
    September 22, 2015


    The WSW signature airs.

    We then get a video recap highlighting the past two weeks of Ignition including the WSW World Title Tournament, Claudio Castagnoli’s debut, Alberto El Patron’s attack on Rey Mysterio Jr., and The Carolina Outlaws laying out The Young Bucks and Team Dragon Gate.

    The WSW Ignition intro airs set to “The Outsiders” by Eric Church. We then cut to Center Stage Atlanta where pyro explodes and the crowd cheers wildly as Mauro Ranallo, Arn Anderson, and Chael Sonnen welcome us to the broadcast.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome ladies and gentleman to Ignition, tonight we will continue our mission to bring you the best professional wrestling in the world today.”

    Arn Anderson – “Tonight, the semi-finals of the World Title Tournament take place. It will be “The Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm vs. Alberto El Patron and the dynamic Claudio Castagnoli vs. “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles.”

    Chael Sonnen – “That’s the el major rudo in professional wrestling, Arn. Alberto El Patron proved last week that he’s the most dangerous man in WSW, and he will do whatever it takes to become the first ever WSW World Champion.”

    The music of Team Dragon Gate hits, and Masato Yoshino and Genki Horiguchi make a beeline down the elevated stage to the ring.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Speaking of rudos, Team Dragon Gate was obviously outraged by the attack by The Carolina Outlaws last week and demanded a match for tonight.”
    ”Rebel Road” by Big Smo blares over the sound system, and Trevor Lee and Andrew Everett—The Carolina Outlaws—saunter out on stage and make their way to the ring with a cocky demeanor, escorted by a chorus of boos.

    As The Carolina Outlaws get into the ring Team Dragon Gate swarms them! Masato Yoshino and Genki Horiguchi are PISSED after last week’s attack. The Carolina Outlaws quickly scurry out to the floor to recover. The walk around the ring as the referee does his best to keep two Japanese wrestlers at bay. Andrew Everett grabs a microphone from the timekeepers table at ringside.


    Andrew Everett – “Whoa, whoa, whoa this is NOT how we are going to do things! You Japanese mothas are going to learn to RESPECT the best tag team in the world today.”

    Slowly and surely, The Carolina Outlaws climb back into the ring.

    Andrew Everett – “Now you may not speak a lick of English, but you’re in luck because in North Carolina we know a unique brand of sign language.”

    Andrew Everett rears back pops Masato Yoshino in the head with the microphone, and the brawl is on!

    Match One: Team Dragon Gate vs. The Carolina Outlaws

    The four men brawl in the ring landing strikes and punches. There isn’t any respect between these teams……this is a fight!

    Team Dragon Gate gets the upper hand and their strikes are fast and furious……Yoshino takes Trevor Lee over the top to the floor with a leg lariat. In the ring Genki Horiguchi lands two sternum smashing kicks to a kneeling Andrew Everett……he loads up for a third kick to the head………..





    But Everett ducks at the last second and rolls outside to recover on the floor with his partner. Team Dragon Gate brings the crowd to its feet by posing in the ring…..beckoning Lee and Everett to get back into the ring. Andrew Everett and Trevor Lee slowly get back on the apron and cautiously wait for the referee step between themselves and Team Dragon Gate. Trevor Lee gets in the ring and Genki Horiguchi charges at him, as the tag portion of the match begins.

    Horiguchi comes in strong with strikes….throwing elbows, forearms, knees, and chops. Horiguchi throws Lee into a corner and charges looking for a double knee splash, but Lee moves out of the way……….

    But Horiguchi catches himself on the middle rope. Horiguchi then jumps to the top turnbuckle and comes off with a moonsault! Quick tag to Masato Yoshino who flies in and the two men land a double enziguri and double springboard moonsaults! Team Dragon Gate is on fire! Yoshino covers…………………


    But Andrew Everett breaks up the pin with a kick to the back of Yoshino’s head. Genki Horiguchi hops back into the ring to attack Andrew Everett and Masato Yoshino joins the fray too. Unfortunately, Yoshino’s moment of blind anger catches up to him as Trevor Lee lands a low blow from behind as the referee’s back is turned trying to clear the ring. Yoshino collapses to the canvas in pain. Trevor Lee’s shortcut allows him to stomp on the fallen wrestler. Lee drags Yoshino to a corner and stomps a mudhole in him……capping it off with a low dropkick in the corner! Lee tags in Andrew Everett and they continue the onslaught with a series of doubleteam moves capped off with a combo tilt-a-whirl flapjack into a jawbreaker! Masato Yoshino refuses to stay down as he kicks out of repeated pin attempts.

    The Carolina Outlaws cut the ring off from Masato Yoshino making frequent tags and working Yoshino over; however, they can’t put him away. Both Andrew Everett and Trevor Lee taunt Genki Horiguchi who jumps up and down on the apron in desperation. Everett and Lee take turns extending Yoshino’s arm towards his corner, only to snatch it away laughing and cackling.

    Yoshino tries to fight back, but he just continues to be swarmed by The Carolina Outlaws. Andrew Everett sends Yoshino down hard with a big back body drop and tags in Trevor Lee. Lee enters the ring and sprints across the ring to punch Genki Horiguchi to the floor. Lee and Everett pose in the ring and set up Masato Yoshino for the White Lightning……


    But Genki Horiguchi enters the ring to land some shots on the Outlaws. The referee grabs Horiguchi and forces him back into his corner, and out of the ring. Masato Yoshino uses this as a chance to the give Lee and Everett some payback and lands low blows of his own! The Carolina Outlaws go down, and Yoshino uses this as his chance to make his desperation lunge to Genki Horguchi.

    Horiguchi takes his opportunity and starts throwing kicks that are as painful as they are quick. His kicks ring out through Center Stage with the crowd’s ohhs heard as soon as each kick finds its target. Andrew Everett rolls outside and flops to the floor in pain. Horiguchi scoops up Trevor Lee for the Beach Break……..


    And he nails it! COVER! 1…



    2….


    Andrew Everett flies into the ring and breaks the pin up! The referee is hot and gets in Everett’s face! Horiguchi can’t wait and he jumps over to attack Andrew Everett. Everett and Horiguchi begin slugging away at each other! Chaos soon evolves and all four men begin to go at it in the ring…..the referee loses all control of the match and calls for the bell!

    Winner: No Contest


    The music of the Young Bucks hits……and Matt and Nick Jackson run down and join the fray………

    WHAP! Nick nails Andrew Everett with a superkick!


    WHAP! Matt Jackson attempts to superkick Trevor Lee, but Trevor Lee ducks and Matt inadvertently connects flush with Genki Horiguchi! Matt looks on with surprise as Horiguchi falls like a ton of bricks.

    A professional wrestling Mexican standoff has developed in the ring between the Young Bucks, The Carolina Outlaws, and Team Dragon Gate…………..



    The sounds of gun shots ring out over the sound system followed by rock music………………….


    Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin walk out on the stage!


    Mauro Ranallo – “Oh my God! The Motor City Machine Guns have arrived in WSW!”

    Center Stage goes nuts as Chris Sabin puts a microphone to his lips…………..

    Chris Sabin – “It seems that the question being floated around at the moment is ‘who is the best tag team in the world today?’……Well ladies and gentlemen, you wanted the best, and the best has just arrived.”

    The MCMG charge down to the ring and a four team melee is on! Strikes and punches fly! The Carolina Outlaws quickly bail from the ring to avoid further conflict and retreat back up the elevated stage. Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley have the crowd in a frenzy as they clear the ring of The Young Bucks and Team Dragon Gate! The Motor City Machine Guns are left all alone in the ring! Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin stand in corners of the ring as the crowd goes nuts! The Young Bucks and Team Dragon Gate look up from the floor and The Carolina Outlaws look on from the stage!

    Commercials

    We return to Ignition with Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson narrating highlights of the chaotic events that just unfolded with the tag teams of WSW, including the debut of The Motor City Machine Guns. The camera then zooms to the announce position on stage.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Huge news just coming in from the desk of WSW Owner, Shane McMahon in regards to the tag team division. Next week on Ignition, we will crown the first ever champions in World Series Wrestling, as Team Dragon Gate/The Young Bucks/The Carolina Outlaws…..and yes, The Motor City Machine Guns will square off in a Four Corners Elimination Match to determine the first ever WSW World Tag Team Champions.”

    Arn Anderson – “That is huge news indeed! These four teams just beat the hell out of each other in an attempt to prove themselves as the best, next week we will settle the score once and for all!”

    Mauro Ranallo – “It will be an exciting event that you will not want to miss. Shifting gears just a bit, we would be remiss if we did not provide an update on Rey Mysterio Jr. The legendary luchador put on a tremendous performance last week against Alberto El Patron in a losing effort; however, a vicious postmatch assault by El Patron has resulted in a serious arm injury for Mysterio. We can confirm that Mysterio will be here next week to address the assault.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Well unfortunately for Rey Mysterio Jr. he felt the wrath of the most dangerous prize fighter in the world today. Alberto El Patron. Guys, I had the privilege to sit down with El Patron this week to discuss his objectives and goals in WSW.”

    The camera then fades to the sitdown interview with Chael Sonnen and Alberto El Patron. El Patron wears an expensive tailored suit and sits with a confident and cocky demeanor.

    Chael Sonnen – “Alberto, without a doubt, you are one of the top professional wrestlers in the world. You are a multiple time World Champion. What attracted you to World Series Wrestling?”

    Alberto El Patron – “Chael, I am not just a professional wrestler, I am a prize fighter. I do not put my body on the line for the love of the sport, I put my body on the line to be the best. Success is my obsession, and in this line of work the only way to determine success to become World Champion. I am a dominator, a lion on the Serengeti, a conquistador and I am in WSW to become the first World Champion.”

    Chael Sonnen – “I’m not going to beat around the bush and avoid the issue. I’m going to straight up ask you what everyone wants to know, why the attack on Rey Mysterio Jr?”

    Alberto El Patron – (laughs) “People are so simple minded these days. They always think that A has to lead to B……that 1 + 1 always has to equal 2. Chael, I did not attack Rey Mysterio Jr. due to some deep seeded hatred…..I did it because I could. I have a laser focus on my goal of becoming World Champion, and anyone who interferes will get hurt. No one will stand between me and my goal. James Storm has done nothing all week but picture me ruining his arm just like I did to Mysterio…...in my mind, I have won this battle before the first shot has been fired.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Your association with Armando Alejandro was revealed last week. What is your relationship with the man?”

    Alberto El Patron – “He is my agent. He makes sure I am in a position to showcase my skills and get paid. Money is a big love of mine, second only to standing atop the world as champion…………I seek to be the most powerful man in combat sports. WSW is now my kingdom, and soon I will sit over it as the king.”

    The camera fades out

    Commercials

    Back from commercial we are backstage where Todd Keneley is standing with James Storm.

    Todd Keneley – “James, you just saw that video package on Alberto El Patron before the break....your thoughts?”

    James Storm – “(takes a swig of beer) I don’t think there’s much to say…..No matter which way you skin him, Alberto is always going to be a snake. And yea, if you stick your hand down in a snake pit long enough….it’ll get bit. But NOT on this night! A shot at the World Title is on the line tonight…..and I told you two weeks ago that this cowboy still has a few good fights left in him…..and that’s what tonight’s gonna be. You see Alberto wants to get violent and hurt people ‘because he can,’ well son……I’m not here to wrestle you…….I’m here to fight your ass. (swigs his beer). So, tonight Alberto……sorry bout your damn luck!”

    As we pan back into Center Stage we see Armando Alejandro standing in the center of the ring wearing an expensive suit. Boos begin immediately, and they only intensify when he opens his mouth.

    Armando Alejandro – “Listen to me! For I am here to introduce the best prize fighter in the world today……a God amongst men……the Mexican Saint……ALBERTOOOOO ELLLLLLL PATRONNNNNNNN!”

    The sounds of Spanish guitars sound out and Alberto El Patron comes out wearing a grin as he soaks in the boos. El Patron saunters down to the ring, poses in the ring with his arms extended to the crowd.

    James Storm’s music hits and the boos change to cheers as the Tennessee Cowboy makes his way down to the ring with his trademark beer bottle.


    Match Two: WSW World Title Tournament (Semi-Final) Alberto El Patron (w/ Armando Alejandro) vs. “The Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm

    The bell rings, and James Storm leans back in the corner against the turnbuckles like a barroom brawler who has just downed a shot of Jack Daniels. Alberto El Patron walks to the center of the ring and challenges Storm to step up and face him. Storm obliges and walks right up to El Patron and slaps him in the face! Storm follows this up with another slap, another, and a series of right hands! El Patron backs himself into the corner, but Storm follows and continues to rain down right hands till the referee steps in to back him off, issuing a warning to Storm. This gives an opening to El Patron who lands a big kick to the left arm of Storm.

    El Patron then falls in with elbow strikes, forearms, and chops. El Patron backs Storm into a corner and rains down blows, till Storm rallies like a boxer and starts landing strikes of his own. Storm backs off and yells in triumph…..El Patron quickly charges out of the corner……..and walks into a snap power slam from Storm! Storm quickly hops to his feet and lands knee drops. El Patron is reeling and rolls out to the apron where Armando Alejandro walks over to talk with his client. James Storm feels the cheers of the crowd and walks over to El Patron who grabs Storm’s head and drops his throat over the top rope. El Patron flies back into the ring with a spinning slingshot splash. El Patron then twists Storm’s arm around and puts him in a hammerlock.

    As Storm tries to fight his way out, Patron picks up and throws Storm into the air onto the ropes crashing his arm down over them. Storm rolls around on the canvas in pain as El Patron smirks and systematically stomps on the left arm over and over again. Armando Alejandro cheers from the floor, as El Patron drags Storm over to the corner…….he slides to the floor…..grabs Storms arm……and slings it violently against the steel ring post!

    The crowd ohhhs at the painful move……..


    And El Patron does it again! Storm rolls around clutching his arm in pain. Alberto El Patron struts around the ring smiling and jawing with fans as he slowly makes his way back into the ring. El Patron then leg drops Storm's arm and stomps it some more……..Storm rolls around looking to distance himself from the luchador. El Patron stalks Storm like a shark…….El Patron goes for a running kick to the side of Storm’s head, but Storm avoids it at the last moment! El Patron quickly turns around and walks into a belly to belly suplex! Storm gasps for air as slowly makes his way to his feet……..Storm begins swinging right hands that catch El Patron flush. Storm slams El Patron into the corner and rams him with shoulder blocks. Storm sits El Patron up on the top rope………..

    Storm climbs to the middle rope, but El Patron bites Storm’s forehead………….Storms jumps back down to the canvas and cries out in pain. El Patron then leaps off the middle rope with a sunset flip!............


    1….

    2….

    Kick out!

    Both men roll through and El Patron goes for a superkick……..


    But Storm ducks and counters with the Eye of the Storm (spinning crucifix toss)!


    1……





    2…….




    Kick Out!

    El Patron gets his shoulder up! Storm---clutching his left arm to his side---gets to his feet and pulls his hair back…….he positions himself in a corner as El Patron slowly gets to his feet........Alberto El Patron gets to his feet……..

    Storm goes for the Last Call……..



    Alberto El Patron ducks……….

    And counters with a fisherman’s buster………….Alberto El Patron then transitions into an Arm Bar!




    Alberto El Patron has the Arm Bar locked in deeply on the left arm! Storm’s eyes nearly pop out of his head and the pain shoots through his body. Armando Alejandro screams in joy, and El Patron wrenches back………….



    The pain is just too great, and James Storm taps out!

    El Patron keeps the Arm Bar locked in after the bell rings! The referee pulls on El Patron till he releases the hold. El Patron pushes the referee away as Armando Alejandro hops in the ring to celebrate with his client. El Patron gets his arm raised in victory, Alberto El Patron is going to the finals of the World Title Tournament!

    Winner: Alberto El Patron

    James Storm rolls slowly in the ring, clutching his arm in pain with a dejected look in his face. The referee comes over to check on James Storm and help him to his feet. El Patron retrieves Storm’s bottle of beer from the timekeeper’s table and takes a swig as he climbs back into the ring with Armando Alejandro. El Patron looks into the camera and winks…………….







    And then he smashes the bottle over James Storm’s head! Glass and beer fly as Storm is knocked cold by the brutal strike! The hatred from the Center Stage crowd is real as they maul Alberto El Patron with boos. Storm’s body lays in a puddle of beer and glass…..and blood begins to drip from Storm’s forehead down to the canvas. Just as he did last week, Armando Alejandro cackles, reaches into his jacket, and rains down a stack of $100 bills on the motionless body of Storm.


    Commercials

    As we return from commercial, we cut into a video package……

    The camera shows a birds eye view of what the screen identifies: “Lucerne, Switzerland.” We see the streets of the city and we see Claudio Castagnoli clad in sweats and a hoodie running. Castagnoli’s voice narrates the video.


    Claudio Castagnoli – “Switzerland is my home, but the world has been my classroom.”

    Images flash on the screen of Castagnoli’s career through the years.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “I have trained in over ten countries, learning and perfecting various combat styles and techniques.”

    We see clips of Castagnoli training in the ring, showing elements of Sambo, Greco-Roman wrestling, and boxing.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “My life has been dedicated to becoming the most educated and powerful fighter in the world.”

    Castagnoli increases the pace of his run to the point that he is almost in a full sprint.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “I train to succeed………………….I train to win…………………………..I train for greatness.”

    The camera quickly flash cuts and we see Claudio Castagnoli on a ridge overlooking Lucerne…..he takes his hood from his head and the camera gets a look at the eyes of intensity.

    Claudio Castagnoli –“I will not fail.”

    We then fade back to Center Stage where Justin Roberts stands in the center of the ring.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit and is a Semi Final match in the WSW World Title Tournament.”

    The 1812 Overture sounds out and the crowd hops to its feet as Claudio Castagnoli walks out on stage fired up!

    Castagnoli makes his way down to the ring quickly and bounces around in the ring, getting loose.

    The music of AJ Styles then hits as sparks rain down on the stage. Center Stage stays red hot as they cheer widely for the Georgia native. AJ Styles makes his way down to the ring never taking his eyes off of Claudio Castagnoli.


    Mauro Ranallo – “What a moment here at Center Stage! These two men are in an elite class, and will do battle here in the main event for the opportunity to challenge Alberto El Patron in two weeks for the WSW World Championship.”

    Match Three: World Title Tournament (Semi-Final) – Claudio Castagnoli vs. “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles

    Dueling chants for both men break out as the bell rings and the two men approach each other. AJ immediately goes to use his speed as he ducks under the lock up attempt begins to fire with quick kicks and chops. Claudio Castagnoli can only briefly clamp down on Styles who bounces around the ring and takes Castagnoli off his feet with a spinning heel kick, and multiple drop kicks…..the last of which sends Castagnoli through the ropes to the floor.

    AJ stays on the offensive, and goes for a slingshot splash to the outside…………but Castagonli catches him!

    Claudio Castagnoli swings AJ Styles around and goes for a release overhead belly to belly suplex into the apron…………………….

    But AJ lands on his feet on the apron! Without hesitation, Styles bounces off the middle rope………and nails an Asai Moonsault that sends Castagnoli down to the floor! AJ rolls Castagnoli back into the ring and Styles goes to keep the pace up and goes for his springboard flying forearm, but eats a wicked European Uppercut from Castagnoli on his way down! AJ crashes and burns as “Holy Sh*t” chants break out.

    Claudio Castagnoli sees the opening and wastes no time to grind away with mat wrestling on AJ. Castagnoli works his submissions into a buckle bomb on Styles! Castagnoli nearly decapitates Styles with big clothesline! Cover….

    But a kickout! Claudio locks a full nelson on Styles and grinds away some more. After fighting through the pain, Styles works his way back to his feet, but Claudio Castagnoli drops Styles on his head with a full nelson German suplex! Claudio continues his attack and grabs the legs of Styles as the crowd begins to jump up and down……..



    BIG SWING!



    Castagnoli gets 15 rotations on Styles before he roars and pounds a fist on his chest. Castagnoli grabs the legs of Styles and goes for the Sharpshooter……….but Styles surprises him with a rollup……

    1……


    2……


    Kickout!

    Castagnoli just kicks out! Styles tries to surprise Castagnoli and goes for the Pele kick, but Castagnoli counters……..




    With the Sharpshooter! Incredible counter by Castagnoli! He has the Sharpshooter locked in tight, but the men are too close to the ropes and Styles is able to reach out and clutch the bottom rope forcing the break. Castagnoli drops Styles’ legs in frustration. Castagnoli looks to continue his attack and he hoists Styles up for a vertical suplex……. But Styles counters with a DDT!

    Both men lay in the ring and regain their vertical base…………..Styles lays into Castagnoli with hard knife edge chops…….he bounces Castagnoli off the ropes and takes him down hard with a discus clothesline! AJ gets a 2 count off a cover! Styles looks to keep the pace flowing and nails his springboard flip inverted DDT!

    Castagnoli is down and Styles grabs him and goes for the Styles Clash……….

    But Castagnoli sends Styles flying as he back body drops out of it! Syles lands on his feet on the middle rope! Styles bounds to the top turnbuckle, but before he can fly………

    Castagnoli hops up the top and goes for a super German Suplex!..........



    AJ flips himself over and lands on his feet on the canvas! Castagnoli leaps off the top for a flying crossbody……..


    But Styles dropkicks him out of midair! Cover….

    Kick Out!

    “This is awesome!” chants break out as Styles rolls over on his back and looks up at the lights wondering what it will take to put Castagnoli away!

    Styles and Castagnoli get to their feet and AJ cracks Castagnoli with a leaping knee strike. AJ follows with a scream and flurry of forearm shots……AJ then powerbombs Castagnoli down and goes for a cover……..but again Castagnoli kicks out! AJ bounces off the ropes and drops a knee over the sternum of Claudio and heads to the apron. Styles springboards and looks for the 450 Splash……….


    But Castagnoli moves! AJ eats canvas hard!

    Castagnoli sits back and the submission is locked on and Styles is nowhere near the ropes. AJ screams and grits his teeth trying to fight through the pain…………….

    He reaches his arm out for the ropes but he can’t reach them. Castagnoli wrenches back………..


    AJ puts his head down on the canvas and the referee calls for the bell! AJ Styles has passed out!

    Mauro Ranallo – “What a bout! Claudio Castagnoli has advanced to the finals of the World Title Tournament and will square off against Alberto El Patron in two weeks to crown the first WSW World Champion!”

    Winner: Claudio Castagnoli

    Claudio Castagnoli gets his arm raised and he roars in triumph.

    The cheers of the crowd turn to boos as Alberto El Patron is shown to have walked out on the stage. Castagnoli looks on from the ring and points at El Patron, as El Patron extends his arms and motions for a belt around his waist.

    The camera pulls back to show Claudio Castagnoli raising a fist in the air in victory in the ring as Alberto El Patron points from the stage and does a throat slash.

    WSW Ignition
    Center Stage Atlanta
    September 29, 2015


    The WSW Ignition intro video airs set to Eric Church’s “The Outsiders.” We then cut inside Center Stage Atlanta where Mauro Ranallo welcomes us to the show.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome ladies and gentlemen to WSW Ignition, the most explosive hour on television. I am joined by Arn Anderson and Chael Sonnen. Tonight we will feature a contract signing between Alberto El Patron and Claudio Castagnoli for their WSW World Championship match next week. In our main event, we will crown the first champions in WSW, as the World Tag Team Titles will be awarded to the winners of a four team elimination match between Team Dragon Gate, The Carolina Outlaws, The Motor City Machine Guns, and The Young Bucks. Right now let’s head to the ring for a special announcement.”

    The cameras zoom to the ring where Rey Mysterio Jr. stands, wearing his mask and street clothes. His arm is in a sling, a product of Alberto El Patron’s attack two weeks ago. Rey has a microphone and he patiently waits out chants of “Rey” from the crowd.

    Rey Mysterio Jr. – “Thank you for that. (the crowd continues to cheer) Thank you for all the cheers over the years. No matter where I have been the constant has always been you guys. There is nothing that can make my heart beat and my blood bump quite like hearing your reaction, and obviously that is something that is not going to happen for a while………you see, thanks to Alberto El Patron, I have an injury to my elbow that will keep me out of action. (the crowd boos at the prospect of Mysterio Jr. being hurt)

    If there is one thing that I have always prided myself on, it’s my resilience. And I wanted to come out here tonight and let you know that I WILL BE BACK! And Alberto, I will be coming for you…..”

    Rey Mysterio Jr. is suddenly interrupted by the sound of Shelton Benjamin’s voice.

    Shelton Benjamin – “Will you do us all a favor and SHUT THE HELL UP!”

    Shelton Benjamin walks out on the stage with a microphone, and he starts to walk down the elevated runway.

    Shelton Benjamin – “Rey, I know you’ve been doing this for a long time, but look in the mirror man……you’re old as hell. Maybe it would have been best for Alberto El Patron to snap your arm in two, that way we can all be saved from your stupid underdog story for the 20,000 time.”

    The crowd boos Shelton Benjamin as he enters the ring.

    Shelton Benjamin – “I’ve been in this business for fifteen years…..FIFTEEN YEARS, and I got crap to show for it. Well, I’m tired of playing by the rules, I’m thinking it’s time for me to go in business for myself. Unlike you Rey, I don’t give a damn about these people…….I care about me…..and making headlines!”

    Shelton Benjamin then shoves Rey Mysterio Jr. Rey turns his body to protect his sling, but Benjamin slaps Mysterio Jr. across the face and yells….

    Shelton Benjamin – “What are you going to do big man!”

    Mysterio Jr. responds with a right hand, and another, and another! But Benjamin fights back and begins to take the advantage on the one armed Mysterio. Benjamin shoves Mysterio Jr. down in the corner and looks to stomp the injured arm……..



    But Fenix sprints down to the ring! Fenix spins Benjamin around and starts laying into him! Fenix lands a spinning round house kick to the face that sends Benjamin spiraling through the ropes to the floor!

    The crowd cheers as Fenix checks on Mysterio Jr., who grabs the microphone.


    Rey Mysterio – “Hey Shelton! You want to go into business for yourself?! Well why don’t you start by getting into the ring with my boy Fenix right here………right now!”

    The crows cheers at the prospect of this. Shelton paces around the ring contemplating when all of a sudden, a referee runs down and calls for the bell! Benjamin slowly walks up the ring steps upset, as this is clearly not what he had in mind.

    Match One: Fenix (w/ Rey Mysterio Jr.) vs. Shelton Benjamin

    Fenix immediately flies in to attack Shelton Benjamin with a flurry of strikes. Forearms and kicks are a plenty. Fenix dropkicks Benjamin back into the corner and without missing a beat sprints over and snaps off a picture perfect hurricanrana! Shelton looks to scramble away from Fenix and escapes back to the elevated runway. He waves his arms and says “Screw It” and begins walking to the back.

    Fenix is having none of this and follows Benjamin out to the elevated walkway…..spins him around……and starts firing off a series of chops! Fenix throws Benjamin back into the ring………springboards…..and nails a beautiful high revolution spinning crossbody! COVER……..but Benjamin kicks out at two! Fenix goes to pick Benjamin back up but Shelton fights back with some strikes to the midsection. Benjamin works his way back to his feet and slings Fenix across the ring to a corner…..

    Benjamin charges, but Fenix tries to counter with a head scissors……………………..but Benjamin counters that with a sitout powerbomb! Benjamin then grinds down on Fenix working the luchador over with mat wrestling. Benjamin in an ultimate show of disrespect starts to pull and tug on Fenix’s mask. Fenix has none of this and begins to fire back with overhead kicks from a seated position. Fenix works his way to feet, and Benjamin whips him into the ropes…….Benjamin goes for a back body drop, but telegraphs it and Fenix brings the crowd to a frenzy with a leg trap sunset flip powerbomb!

    Like a cat, Fenix bounds to the top turnbuckle in one motion. He motions to the skies and flies……

    AIRE MEXICANO connects! (corkscrew somersault senton)

    Fenix hooks the legs for the win!

    Winner: Fenix

    Rey Mysterio Jr. hops into the ring to celebrate with Fenix, shaking his hand! The crowd cheers as Fenix poses on the second turnbuckle as Rey Mysterio Jr. points at him and applauds along with the crowd!

    Commercials


    Back from break we cut to a video package on the WSW World Championship. The camera cuts between shots of separate sit down interviews of Claudio Castagnoli and Alberto El Patron, highlights of their WSW World Title Tournament matches, and interspersed shots of their hometowns.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “This is the match that I’ve waited my entire life for. This is why I have trained for fifteen years.”

    Alberto El Patron – “This is my destiny. I was born to champion in everything I do….from my days playing futbol in Mexico to my career in combat spots. I am quite simply the best. Success if my obsession.”

    Highlights of Claudio Castagnoli’s early career in Europe are shown.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “I have never wanted to be a doctor, a lawyer, or an astronaut……my whole life, all I have ever wanted was to be a professional wrestler. I now have the opportunity to join an elite fraternity and stand on top of the world as a World Champion.”

    Alberto El Patron – “I am the model for which champions are cast. Becoming the best in the world is not determined through a sob story or a troubled career. Becoming the best in the world is about being the most dangerous, the most feared, and the richest man on the planet.”

    Highlights of Alberto El Patron injuring Rey Mysterio Jr. with the Arm Bar and cracking the beer bottle over James Storm’s head are shown.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “Ever since I first stepped foot in WSW I was asked one question…..why?”

    Highlights of Claudio Castagnoli’s debut is shown.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “My answer is……for this moment….this chance to compete for the World Championship. A World Title match may only occur once in lifetime, I owe it to myself and everyone who has helped me get to this point to win!”

    Alberto El Patron – “There is no failure for Alberto El Patron. I will squash Claudio Castagnoli like a roach, and claim by throne.”

    Commercials

    We come back from break where we zoom into in the announce table.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome back to Ignition. My name is Mauro Ranallo and I am joined as always by Chael Sonnen and Arn Anderson. Still to come tonight, we will crown the first ever WSW World Tag Team Champions in a four team elimination match. Plus, the contract signing for next week’s titanic match between Claudio Castagnoli and Alberto El Patron for the WSW World Championship.”

    Chael Sonnen – “The desire to become World Champion is so strong in both these men. You just saw the video package before the break, failure is not an option for either man. I feel like both men would rather die than lose…we are in for a war gentlemen.”

    Arn Anderson – “I want to focus on this tag team match tonight. A golden opportunity exists for one of these teams to become immortal, by becoming the first ever World Tag Team Champions.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “That’s a great point Arn, the tag team division has been combustible since we premiered four weeks ago. The battlefield was shifted last week with the dynamic debut of the Motor City Machine Guns. Right now let’s send things backstage to Todd Keneley who is with the Guns.”

    Backstage, Todd Keneley stands with the MCMG

    Todd Keneley – “Thanks so much Mauro. Alex, Chris….last week you sent shockwaves through the sport with your debut right here on Ignition. Tonight, you have the chance to become the first ever World Tag Team Champions.”

    Alex Shelley – “Todd my friend……never in one sentence have you been so obvious but so correct. It’s like we said last week. It seems there is a debate going around about who the best team in the world is…..and that’s not an argument you can’t have without us.”

    Chris Sabin – “Lets add it up then: last week we crashed the party, and this week we are going to capture the gold.”

    Alex Shelley – “Buckle up folks….the Guns are in the main event, and we are going to give you a show like you’ve never seen before on Spike.”

    We cut back to the ring where Justin Roberts stands ready to announce our next contest.

    Justin Roberts – “The following contest is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    Match Two: PJ Black vs. Uhaa Nation

    PJ Black comes out to a respectful ovation; however, Uhaa Nation receives a huge pop when his pulsing music hits Center Stage. Uhaa comes out to his entrance complete with pryo.

    The two men bounce around the ring and respectfully bump fists before the match. Black and Nation lock up with Uhaa easily gaining the advantage. In a display of pure strength, Nation picks up and tosses PJ Black into the corner like he was nothing. Black charges out of the corner, but right into the grasp of Uhaa who throws PJ Black across the ring with a release overhead belly to belly suplex!

    Uhaa stays on the attack and nails his running leaping clothesline. The crowd begins to chant “Uhaa, Uhaa, Uhaa.” Nation splashes Black in the corner and whips him across to the opposite corner. He tries for a spear in the corner, but Black avoids it and Nation rams through the turnbuckles and nails the steel ring post! Nation is stunned and flops out to the apron, trying to regain his senses from the pain.

    PJ Black sees his opportunity and dropkicks Nation off the apron to the floor. Black follows that up with a baseball slide that ricochets Nation into the guard rail! PJ Black continues the assault and gets back in the ring. The crowd starts to buzz as Black sprints across the ring, leaps…………..




    And FLIES OVER THE RING POST ONTO UHAA NATION!

    “That was awemsome!” chants break out, after the crazy dive by Black up and over the corner! The two men lay down in a heap of the floor. Black begins to stir and he rolls Uhaa Nation back into the ring. Black climbs to the top...............he leaps for a moonsault…………………


    But Uhaa Nation catches him! Nation in a show of shear power catches Black in midair and drives him down viciously with a powerslam. Nation roars as the crowd cheers in approval! Nation whips Black into the ropes, and goes for a spear………..

    But Black voids with an incredible back slide over the charging Nation………


    However, Nation doesn’t stop moving, bounces off the ropes and slices through PJ Black with a spear! Uhaa then completes the Uhaa Combination…..step one: gorilla press slam……step two: standing moonsault. He covers for the win!

    Uhaa roars again as the crowd chants his name. Nation poses on the ropes for the crowd!

    Winner: Uhaa Nation

    Commercials

    We come back from commercial where Justin Roberts makes an announcement at ringside.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the Owner of WSW, Mr. Shane McMahon.”

    [Cheers erupt, as the camera pans to the ring where a fancy table and podium have been set up. On the table sits the beautiful WSW World Championship….yellow gold with black trim on a black leather belt. Shane McMahon stands at the podium wearing one of his trademark Italian suits. He smiles as crowd cheers and chants his name.[/I]

    Shane McMahon – “Thank you Atlanta! It is my pleasure to stand before you tonight to officiate the contract signing of the very first WSW World Championship match. Next week, right here on Ignition, the two men who battled through the World Title Tournament will square off in this very ring for the right to claim that championship!”

    The crowd cheers as McMahon pauses.

    Shane McMahon – “So without further ado, let me introduce the men who have earned the right to compete for the World Championship. First, hailing from Lucerne, Switzerland……..Claudio Castagnoli!

    The 1812 Overture hits and Claudio Castagnoli makes his way out to a huge ovation from the Center Stage crowd. Claudio is clad in a suit and nods appreciatively at the crowd and gets in the ring where he shakes hands with Shane McMahon before occupying his side of the table.

    Shane McMahon – “…And his opponent, from San Luis Potosi, Mexico……Alberto El Patron.”

    Alberto El Patron comes out accompanied by Armando Alejandro. Both men are wearing the finest suits money can buy and the crowd erupts with boos and jeers as they make their way down to the ring. Armando Alejandro opens the ropes for El Patron who greets Shane McMahon with a handshake……..Claudio Castagnoli stands up and the two men have a tense eye to eye meeting.

    Shane McMahon – “Thank you gentlemen for being here tonight. I want to make one thing very clear before we start. There will be no physicality tonight…..that’s what next week is for. I want to ensure that both of you understand that policy. Should you engage in physical conduct at this signing, you will disqualify yourself from next week’s championship match.”

    The tension is still heavy, as both men sit down….never taking their eyes off one another.

    Shane McMahon – (pulls out contract and places it on the table in front of Claudio Castagnoli) “By signing this contract you are locked in for a one fall match for the WSW World Champion. Claudio, we will start with you.”

    A few seconds pass as Castagnoli stares a hole through El Patron. He slowly picks up the pen in front of him and signs his name on the contract amidst cheers. He slides the contract across the table.

    Shane McMahon – “Thank you very much. Alberto, we now turn to you for your signature.”

    Alberto looks down at the contract in front of him and picks the pen up. He goes to sign but pulls up at the last second and grabs a microphone that is laying on the table.

    Alberto El Patron – “You know, I was just buying a new Bentley the other day and I went through a very similar process. You know what they call this……..a formality. You see Claudio, this whole set up….this whole engagement is just something to cause a buzz about next week’s bout. This a photo opportunity to sell our fight. But at the end of the day, there is no doubt in my mind, his mind (points at Shane McMahon), their minds (points to the crowd), and even your mind………about what the outcome will be. Look at me…..and look at you. You are nothing more than a cheap strongman in a circus full of freaks………me, I am a lion tamer!”

    Claudio Castagnoli picks up a microphone that has been laying on his side of the table.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “You’re a liontamer huh?! Well then look at me and you know you are looking into the eyes of a beast! I am not here to mince words……I am here to fight……….I am here to beat you…….and I am here to win that World Title!”

    Alberto El Patron – “Those are big words from a man that has always been a role player. Claudio, next week you will learn what it feels like to be in the Main Event with the greatest prize fighter in the world today. You are a good wrestler, but you are not a superstar. There is a moment….next week….where you will realize that you are outclassed, outmanned, and hopeless. This is the moment where you will realize that there is no outcome where you become champion. The history of the world has always been written by the conquerors…..and you, are staring at a conquistador!

    El Patron grabs the pen and scribbles his name down on the contract, thus making it official!

    Claudio Castagnoli – “You know Alberto, this was never personal. This has always been about my goal of becoming the World Champion and standing at the top of this sport as the best professional wrestler in the world today. But I will admit………next week is going to sweet…….I will become the first ever WSW World Champion……and I’ll do it by making your ass tap out!”

    Alberto El Patron springs to his feet and Claudio Castagnoli does the same! The crowd starts to buzz as they square off…..eye to eye with the WSW World Title gleaming between them. Alberto screams at Claudio…..

    Alberto El Patron – “YOU ARE A COCKROACH!”

    Claudio Castagnoli takes his suit jacket off…..picks the World Title up……..and flips the table on its end, leaving the two men standing toe to toe!



    The two men approach each other and are inches away…….Castagnoli holds the belt up high between them! The two men burn a hole in each other with their stares!


    Mauro Ranallo – “You can feel the intensity! Claudio Castagnoli and Alberto El Patron are ready to go to war…..the spoils, the WSW World Championship!”

    Commercials

    We return from commercial with Justin Roberts in the ring. The referee holds the WSW World Tag Team Championships. The belts are yellow gold with black and red trim on a black leather belt.

    Justin Roberts – “The following contest is a four team elimination match with a thirty minute time limit to crown the first ever WSW World Tag Team Champions!”

    Match Three: WSW World Tag Team Championship (Four Team Elimination Match) – The Carolina Outlaws vs. The Young Bucks vs. Team Dragon Gate vs. The Motor City Machine Guns

    The teams make their way out to the ring with The Carolina Outlaws getting blasted with boos by Center Stage. The two teams head to each of the four corners, staring at each other. The referee raises the belts high as the bell rings, the moment has just become real!

    Mauro Ranallo – “Under four team elimination match rules, two men will be legal in the ring. There is no limit on who can tag into the match. As soon as one man is pinned or submitted, his team is eliminated.”

    With a sudden burst, Team Dragon Gate sprints over and begins to lay into The Carolina Outlaws! Masato Yoshino and Genki Horiguchi lay into The Carolina Outlaws with fury and passion. Each strike flies in as retribution from last week. Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin seize the opportunity and run across the ring to send all four men over the top rope to the floor. Not to be outdone….The Young Bucks charge at the MCMG, but Shelley and Sabin are waiting and backdrop Matt and Nick Jackson over the top onto Team Dragon Gate and The Carolina Outlaws! The crowd starts to buzz as Shelley and Sabin look at the crowd, look at each other, smile and shrug………..


    The Guns bounce off the ropes…….spring to the top rope and take out everyone on the floor with stereo springboard somersault dives! The crowd starts to chant “WSW, WSW, WSW!” The MCMG roll The Carolina Outlaws back into the ring. Shelley and Sabin send Trevor Lee flying with a duel dropkick! The Guns then turn their attention to Andrew Everett……….they send him bouncing off the ropes and Sabin executes a drop toe hold and Shelley follows with a DDT! Cover……..


    But Everett kicks out! Sabin exits and Shelley continues the fast paced attack on Andrew Everett. Nick Jackson blind tags in on Alex Shelley as he is running the ropes and he drops Andrew Everett with a springboard missile dropkick! Nick Jackson bounds to the top rope and nails Everett with a moonsault! Cover……


    But Trevor Lee flies into the ring breaking up the pin!


    WHAP!


    Lee’s save earns him a trademark Young Bucks superkick from Nick Jackson! Lee falls like a ton of bricks. Nick Jackson’s kick causes him to take his eye off the legal man, Andrew Everett who turns Nick inside out with a wicked lariat! Jackson then lunges over and slaps Genki Horiguchi…..officially tagging him into the match! Horiguchi enters the ring, but attempts to go after Andrew Everett…………………………

    He gets rolled up by Nick Jackson!

    Kick out! Horiguchi just does kick out! He turns his attention to Nick Jackson and the two have a fast paced back and forth till Genki Horiguchi ducks a Nick Jackson kick and lifts him onto his shoulders in an electric chair position. Masato Yoshino climbs to the top and delivers a missile dropkick to the back of Jackson, and Horiguchi slams Nick Jackson down to the canvas in a powerbomb position!

    Matt Jackson makes the save! The referee sends Matt back to corner, as Masato Yoshino tags in and continues to work over Nick Jackson who has been in the ring a long time!

    Yoshino lands strike after strike and runs the ropes at a breakneck pace. He bounces off the ropes and tries for an octopus stretch, but Nick Jackson out of desperation nails a Death Valley Driver out of nowhere!

    Both men lay in a pile….Matt Jackson and Genki Horiguchi leans in for tags. MCMG watch from their corner while The Carolina Outlaws continue to remain on the floor away from the action. Jackson and Yoshino stir at the same time, and inch their way over to their respective corners…………and they both make tags!

    Matt and Genki Horiguchi fly into the ring and lay into each other like lumberjacks trying to cut down red woods! Matt gains the advantage and bounces off the ropes…..and Trevor Lee blind tags himself in! Lee comes off the ropes and gets a sunset flip on Horiguchi!

    Trevor Lee can’t believe it! He argues with the referee who explains what happened! Andrew Everett can’t believe it as well and The Carolina Outlaws protest while Team Dragon Gate waves goodbye! “Nah, Nah, Nah, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye” breaks out from the crowd as The Carolina Outlaws begrudgingly make their way out of the ring.

    Chris Sabin hops in the ring to take on Genki Horiguchi and the two go through a series of counters and reversals. Their back and forth ends in a stalemate. The two competitors look at each other and point to their respective corners and tag in their partners, leading to back and forth between four men! The Young Bucks tag the backs of the MCMG as they run the ropes and pull the top rope down sending the Guns down to the floor! Team Dragon Gate charges, and Bucks pull the rope down again causing Yoshino and Horiguchi to whiff on their leg lariat attempts……crashing hard on the outside!

    “Holy Sh*t” chants start again. The MCMG lay in a heap of cracked wood on top of each other! Nick Jackson is left alone in the ring, but Masato Yoshino enters, and Nick turns around and eats a HUGE roundhouse kick and reverse STO! Yoshino bounds to the top turnbuckle……..


    But Trevor Lee runs back down and shoves him off the top sending him crashing down to the canvas! The referee has been assessing the damage on the floor and missed the sneak attack by the eliminated team! Yoshino grabs the ropes to assist in regaining his vertical base…………


    And he walks right into a Superkick! Nick destroys Masato Yoshino with a superkick and covers!

    WSW Ignition
    Center Stage Atlanta
    October 6, 2015

    WSW World Champion:
    WSW World Television Champion:
    WSW World Tag Team Champions: The Young Bucks (9/29/15)

    The WSW signature airs. Ignition’s intro video airs set to the official Ignition theme, “The Outsiders” by Eric Church. We then cut inside Center Stage Atlanta where pyro EXPLODES on stage!

    Mauro Ranallo welcomes us to the broadcast, as we see shots of an electric crowd tonight. The camera then zooms on the announce table—located on the camera right side of the stage—where Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson sit.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome ladies and gentlemen to Ignition right here on Spike! There is a buzz in the air here at Center Stage, as tonight is a momentous mark in the history of World Series Wrestling. Tonight, in the ring, one on one….Claudio Castagnoli and Alberto El Patron will square off for the World Title.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Without a doubt, this is the most anticipated match in the young history our company. Since day one guys, we’ve talked about the mission of WSW….to showcase the best professional wrestling in the world today. The winner of this World Title bout will lead this company into the future. There is so much at stake here tonight!”

    Arn Anderson – “I have been fortunate enough in my life to be associated with some of the greatest athletes to ever lace up a pair of boots. My best friend is the greatest World Champion of all time, believe me when I say this……tonight is a life changing opportunity for both of these men. Being a World Champion is not just a title, it’s a state of mind that you carry every single day.”

    The camera pans around Center Stage and the pulsing music of Uhaa Nation hits which whips the crowd into a frenzy. Uhaa makes his way out and roars as his pyro explodes on stage.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Uhaa Nation with a tremendous reaction from this crowd. Nation has been incredibly impressive thus far here in WSW.”

    Low Ki’s music then hits, and the silent warrior walks out on the stage. With his trademark calculated, focused stare.

    Match One: Uhaa Nation vs. Low Ki

    The bell rings and Low Ki crouches down in his fighter’s stance. Uhaa circles around Low Ki and steps back to avoid a leg kick that Low Ki fires off. Nation then tries to charge in, but Low Ki moves quick as a cat and starts to pepper the chest of Nation with chops, open palm slaps, and forearms….backing Nation into a corner. Low Ki goes to sling Nation across the ring to the opposite corner, but Nation reverses, and charges….but eats a boot from Low Ki. Ki stays on offense snapping off some painful leg kicks followed by a springboard roundhouse that takes Nation off his feet!

    Low Ki immediately springs off the ropes and takes Nation down again with a spinning headscissors, but Uhaa Nation gets to his feet quickly and slams into Ki with the force of a Mac truck with a clothesline as Low Ki bounces off the ropes. Uhaa tosses Low Ki across the ring with a release overhead belly to belly suplex! Nation charges across the ring and dropkicks Low Ki, sending him crashing into the corner hard. Low Ki rolls to the apron to catch his breath.

    Uhaa Nation eats a shoulderblock through the ropes. Low Ki slingshots himself over the ropes and stands on the back of Uhaa Nation! The crowd cheers as Low Ki leaps in the air, and snaps off a beautiful hurricanrana! Low Ki then lays out Nation with a running knee strike to the temple. Cover……..


    But Uhaa Nation kicks out at 2! Low Ki picks Uhaa Nation up and chops him back into a corner. Low Ki backs up into the opposite corner and goes for the Tidal Crush……


    But Uhaa blocks and catches him! Uhaa then sends Low Ki flipping through the air with a German Suplex over the top rope out to the elevated walkway that runs down from the stage!


    Low Ki lays motionless on the elevated walkway as the crowd goes nuts! Uhaa Nation walks out on the walkway and clotheslines Low Ki over the top rope, back into the ring. Uhaa Nation then grabs the ropes and the crowd waits as the big hulk flies through the air with a springboard clothesline! Uhaa roars for the Center Stage crowd, and grabs Low Ki for the Uhaa Combination………..



    Uhaa gets Low Ki up for the press slam………


    But Low Ki reverses with a DDT! Low Ki will not go away quietly. Cover…..

    Kick out! Low Ki gets to his feet and climbs to the top rope. Low Ki leaps off looking for the Way of the Warrior (double foot stomp)……..



    Uhaa rolls out of the way! Low Ki lands on his feet and rolls through. Nation gets to his feet, but Low Ki is already on the attack and he dropkicks Nation back into a corner. Low Ki sits Uhaa Nation on the top and tries to hook him in for the Ki Crusher 99……….


    But Uhaa Nation counters and sends Low Ki crashing down to the canvas with a front suplex from the middle rope!


    Uhaa positions himself in the corner stepping up for a spear!



    Low Ki slowly gets to his feet…….


    He turns around…………..



    SPEA……..NO! Low Ki counters with a disgusting roundhouse kick to the head! Uhaa Nation drops to the canvas like a sack of potatoes!


    Low Ki covers…..

    SHOULDER UP!


    Uhaa Nation just does get his shoulder up. Low Ki rolls over and gets to his feet. He slaps the canvas as he positions himself for his next attack! Uhaa is stunned after nearly having his head kicked completely out of the building. He staggers to his knees as Low Ki snaps off a wicked kick to the chest……..followed by another…….and another!


    Uhaa roars and starts to fire up through the pain! Low Ki continues to kick……………but Uhaa gets to his feet! Low Ki drops him down again with a knee strike to the forehead!

    Low Ki climbs to the top rope again………………….but Uhaa Nation gets to his feet! Low Ki leaps off the top and connects for a crossbody!


    But Uhaa Nation rolls through and gets to his feet…………….


    Fallaway Slam!

    Uhaa goes to a knee to collect his breath…………..


    Low Ki clutches his back and gets to his feet………



    He turns around and walks into a SPEAR! Uhaa grabs Low Ki……

    Winner: Uhaa Nation

    Uhaa stands in the ring and holds his hands up high! The crowd cheers in approval as Uhaa Nation continues his winning ways. In a show of respect, Uhaa Nation walks over and offers his hand to Low Ki. Ki looks at the offer for a second, contemplating……….he concedes and grabs it and Nation helps him to his feet. The crowd gives both men applause as they shake hands. Low Ki rolls out the ring, and Uhaa Nation holds his arms high!

    Commercials

    We come back from commercials and fade into a promo video package. In a dark setting flames roar and burn high on a house. The light from the fires illuminate Fenix who walks through the front door of the burning building. The voice of Rey Mysterio Jr. narrates the package.


    Rey Mysterio Jr. – “Legend tells of a firebird……..the greatest creature on earth to ever take flight.”

    Highlights of Fenix air.

    Rey Mysterio Jr – “This bird cannot be killed, for when it falls……it is reborn…..”

    The camera flashes between shots of Fenix standing behind the flames, and his in ring action.

    Rey Mysterio Jr. – “This phoenix was forged from the hottest fires on earth in Mexico City.”

    The camera zooms on Fenix who stands surrounded by flames in the burning building.

    Rey Mysterio Jr. – “This bird was born to fly………..con lost fuegos de Mexico………Fenix rises.”

    The camera jumps to a close up of Fenix’s mask, a shot of him walking with the flames burning, and then a shot of the burning building in the still of the night…….the only sounds are the fire crackling.


    The video package ends and we fade back to Center Stage where the music of Fenix hits! He walks out on stage and makes his way down to the ring accompanied by Rey Mysterio Jr., who still wears his sling.

    Justin Roberts – “The following contest is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit……..”

    Matt Sydal jumps out on stage and bounces down to the ring, saluting the crowd. He leaps over the top rope and poses in the turnbuckles.

    Match Two: Fenix (w/ Rey Mysterio Jr.) vs. Matt Sydal

    Sydal and Fenix circle each other as the bell rings and they slap hands in a show of respect……and they lock up. Fenix and Sydal then go through a dizzying series of counters, reversals, and arm drags before ending in a standoff that draws the cheers of the crowd. The two men nod their heads at each other and go at it again! Again they battle through a series of face paced counters till Sydal cracks Fenix with a discus elbow! Sydal bounces off the ropes and drills a picture perfect dropkick!

    Sydal stays on the offensive with kicks and chops, till Fenix pops off a step up enziguri. Fenix then dumps Sydal on the back of his head with a full nelson suplex! Rey Mysterio Jr. cheers from the outside as Fenix picks Sydal up for a vertical suplex…………and then drops him stomach first over the top rope leaving him hanging. Fenix then climbs to the top rope………………..



    And hits a guillotine leg drop to the hanging Sydal sending him flipping back into the ring! Fenix covers……


    1….


    2….

    Kick Out!

    Fenix chops away at Sydal’s chest with the crowd “Whooing” as each chop finds its target. Fenix slings Sydal into the corner, and tries for a leg lariat…….but Sydal moves and Fenix crashes into the turnbuckles with high velocity! Fenix slowly gets to his feet and charges at Sydal, but Sydal catches him and drops him with a tilt-a-whirl jawbreaker! Sydal follows up with a swinging neckbreaker and a fisherman suplex! Cover………


    But Fenix kicks out! Sydal stays on the offensive and attempts another fisherman’s suplex, but Fenix counters with a Northern Lights Suplex! Into a bridged pin…….


    But Sydal kicks out!

    The crowd cheers as both men get to their feet at the same time. Sydal attempts a clothesline, but Fenix ducks and goes for a German Suplex…..but Sydal lands on his feet! Fenix charges and Sydal hits a drop toe hold that sends Fenix face first into the middle turnbuckle! Matt Sydal then nails a running knee strike to the face of a seated Fenix! Matt Sydal positions Fenix and climbs to the top rope!


    Rey Mysterio Jr. pounds his fists on the apron to will Fenix to his feet. Sydal stands tall on the top…….



    But Fenix springs to his feet and gets HUGE elevation as he connects with a jumping kick to Sydal who loses his balance from the kick and gets crotched on the top! Fenix climbs up the top rope himself and lands some elbow strikes to Sydal. Fenix then stands on the top rope with Matt Sydal……………









    SPANISH FLY!




    The crowd goes nuts as Fenix nails the moonsault slam! Cover…..

    Winner: Fenix

    Rey Mysterio Jr. gets in the ring to celebrate with Fenix who clutches his chest as he gets his arm raised in victory. Fenix gets his arm raised by Mysterio, and he poses on the ropes after earning a hard fought victory.

    Just then we get static on the screen followed by different test pattern screens. A voice is heard….


    Voice – “The following announcement has been paid for by The Young Bucks.”

    We then cut to the Santa Monica Pier where Matt and Nick Jackson walk with the WSW World Tag Team Titles over their shoulders.

    Matt Jackson – “Oh hello there, were you expecting the nWo?

    Nick Jackson – “I loved those guys!”

    Matt Jackson – “Me too……welcome to beautiful, sunny Southern California. Home of gorgeous weather, gorgeous women, and the best damn tag team in the land…….The Young Bucks.”

    Nick Jackson – “Oh yes brotha, see we have the belts, we have cash, and now we have a paid for advertisement on Spike. Why you ask?......simply so we can tell you how awesome we are!”

    Matt Jackson – “Everywhere we go, people are talking about us….especially since we added these beasts to our trophy case (taps belt on his shoulder).”

    Nick Jackson – “Don’t worry WSW faithful, The Young Bucks are going to soak up a few more rays, spend a few more dollars, and then we’ll be back to continue to do what we do best……superkicking the hell out of anyone who gets in our way!”

    The Young Bucks walk past a man in an Elmo suit who is out waving and taking pictures with families on the pier, entertaining as part of the pier.

    Nick Jackson – “Hey Elmo, Too Sweet me…”

    Nick offers the famous “Too Sweet” hand sign to Elmo who offers it back! The Young Bucks take continue to walk, but then stop……look at each other…………and they superkick Elmo on the Santa Monica Pier!

    The two brothers look at each other, smile and tap their tag team belts together like they are beer bottles and walk off.

    The static and test patterns return to the screen.


    Voice – “The preceding announcement was paid for by The Young Bucks.”

    Commercials

    We return from commercials where we get a hype video for the World Title match between Claudio Castagnoli and Alberto El Patron. The opening strains of “One” by Metallica serve as the soundtrack as we see highlights of Castagnoli’s and El Patron’s run through the World Title Tournament. We see Castagnoli’s debut, his match against Nick Aldis, and his grueling match with AJ Styles. El Patron’s matches against Rey Mysterio Jr. and James Storm are shown as well as his post-match attacks. The video ends with the staredown from last week’s contract signing.

    We fade back to Center Stage where the camera pans around. We see Nick Aldis and Austin Aries seated at different positions at ringside to take in this title match. Higher up, AJ Styles sits with his hooded sweatshirt, eyes intently looking at the stage and the ring.

    The bell rings three times. The camera pans to the ring where Shane McMahon stands next to Justin Roberts, holding the beautiful WSW World Title.


    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is for the WSW World Championship and is set for one fall with a thirty minute time limit.”

    The 1812 Overture hits and Claudio Castagnoli makes his way out on the stage. Castagnoli keeps his head down as he bounces back and forth on the stage, and then he raises his head, his eyes full of passion and determination. He pounds on his chest and raises a fist in the air to a massive pop as he strides down to the ring. Castagnoli gets in the ring and bounces and grabs at the ropes.


    The sounds of a Spanish guitar sound out through Center Stage, and Alberto El Patron walks out on the stage followed by Armando Alejandro. El Patron is mobbed by boos, but he opens his arms and smiles almost welcoming in the jeers. Armando Alejandro pats him on the back as the two make their way down the elevated walkway to the ring.

    El Patron enters the ring and looks across the ring at Castagnoli, who stands in his corner…..staring a hole through El Patron. Justin Roberts handles formal ring introductions.


    Justin Roberts – “These men are the finalists of the WSW World Title Tournament To my left, standing 6’5”, weighing 235 pounds, from Lucerne, Switzerland……Claudio Castagnoli!”

    Castagnoli receives a massive reaction, as he bounces back and forth again.

    Justin Roberts – “To my right, standing 6’5”, weighing 239 pounds, from San Luis Potosi, Mexico……….Alberto El Patron!”

    The chorus of boos rains down again. Shane McMahon hands the belt to the referee who holds it high. Armando Alejandro offers a few last words of advice before stepping out to the floor. Shane McMahon exits the ring and takes a seat at the timekeepers table at ringside.

    Match Three: WSW World Championship – Claudio Castagnoli vs. Alberto El Patron (w/ Armando Alejandro)

    The bell rings, and the two men come out of their respective corners. Claudio Castagnoli comes out hot! He lays into Alberto El Patron with European Uppercuts. The crowd roars as Castagnoli hammers El Patron with uppercut after uppercut! He backs El Patron in the corner and lights up Alberto’s chest with knife edge chops! Castagnoli steps back after his flurry and challenges Alberto to meet him in the center of the ring, screaming, “COME ON!”

    Alberto El Patron responds by dropping down and rolling out to the floor. The crowd boos as El Patron rubs his jaw. He consults with Armando Alejandro on the floor. Castagnoli paces around impatiently, as Alberto El Patron makes his way up the stairs back into the ring. Castagnoli advances in again for a European Uppercut, but Alberto kicks him in the knee, this slows Castagnoli down enough to allow El Patron gets some chops of his own and some right hands to the jaw of Castagnoli. El Patron then clips the knee of Castagnoli to take him down! Castagnoli grabs at his left knee, but El Paton sees the opening and begins to stomp on it mercilessly. Alberto gets a shinbreaker followed by a vertical suplex.

    Alberto continues the attack by ramming his knees into the back of Castagnoli! Alberto continues his assault by hitting a running boot to the side of Claudio Castagnoli’s face! Alberto rises to his feet and smiles as he slowly spins around in the ring. The boos are only growing louder. Claudio tries to put some distance between himself and El Patron as he tries to shake off the cob webs. Castagnoli makes his way to his feet, but Alberto El Patron is there to sweep his bad leg and take him down again! El Patron has Castagnoli cornered and he goes to work with stomps on the right arm of Castagnoli. El Paton vaults to the middle rope and drops down with added force on the right arm! Alberto taunts the crowd and Castagnoli as he kicks Claudio out of the ring to the floor!

    Claudio falls with a thud to the floor and he grabs at his arm and makes his way to his knees. Alberto talks trash to the fans at ringside as he stalks Castagnoli. Alberto lines Claudio up and tries for another running boot, but Castagnoli gets to his feet, grabs El Patron, and throws him in the air………..sending him crashing into the steel ring post! Claudio is slow to get to his feet, as Armando runs over to help his client. El Patron is dazed and pissed. He gets to his feet charges at Castagnoli, Claudio ducks down and back drops El Patron over the guardrail, sending him crashing into the first and second row! El Patron lays sprawled out in a mixture of fans and ringside chairs! Claudio gets back into the ring, as the referee begins his 10 Count. Alberto flops back over the railing to ringside, his face showing pain and frustration, not the cocky smile he was wearing. El Patron gets into the ring at the count of 7.

    The two men meet each other in the center of the ring and exchange strikes! The crowd Boos/Yeahs as Castagnoli uses the European Uppercut with his left arm and Alberto El Patron uses right hands. Alberto bounces off the ropes……but runs into a belly to belly suplex! Castagnoli keeps his arms locked……..and sends El Patron overhead with a release overhead belly to belly suplex! Castagnoli grabs the legs of El Patron and the crowd starts to pop, but El Patron starts to rain right hands to the face of Castagnoli to avoid the Sharpshooter. Castagnoli keeps ahold of El Patron’s legs and falls back, catapulting El Patron into the corner! El Patron smashes his face into the top turnbuckle! Castagnoli rolls up El Patron….

    El Patron kicks out/rolls through. El Patron then superkicks Castagnoli in the right arm! Castagnoli falls back into the corner. El Patron makes his way to the corner and puts Castagnoli on the top. El Patron climbs up and lands some elbows and forearms. El Patron goes for a superplex, but Castagnoli blocks……El Patron tries again, but Castagnoli blocks again! Castagnoli lands some shots to the midsection and then starts to lay into El Patron with head butts! Castagnoli rocks El Patron with head butt after head butt…………………….Castagnoli then grabs El Patron………………








    SUPER GUTWRENCH SUPLEX!







    Both men lay in the ring motionless……………………………….


    Castagnoli clutches his arm as he inches his way over to El Patron………..

    Kick Out!





    Alberto El Patron stays alive, by just kicking out! Castagnoli gets to his feet and grabs the legs of El Patron. He goes for the Sharpshooter, but El Patron scrambles and clutches the bottom rope to prevent Castagnoli from executing the move. Again, Castagnoli keeps hold of El Patron’s legs. The referee begins the 5 Count, but Castagnoli yanks El Patron from the bottom rope and executes the BIG SWING!


    Castagnoli gets 5 rotations on the swing before dropping El Patron. Claudio goes to a knee and clutches his right arm again. El Patron rolls away and Castagnoli approaches………


    El Patron catches him with the Arm Bar! Like a striking snake, Alberto catches Castagnoli with the Arm Bar and starts to wrench on the right arm! Castagnoli yells out in pain……….


    Alberto has it locked in tight……………





    But Castagnoli frantically reaches out and gets his foot on the bottom rope! The referee starts the 5 Count, and El Patron doesn’t break till 4! The referee gets in El Patron’s face, but El Patron shoves him out of the way! He grabs Castagnoli’s arm and heads out to the floor. El Patron then begins smashing Claudio Castagnoli’s right arm into the steel ring post!

    Castagnoli is in serious pain as he rolls around on the canvas…….his arm wrecked by the attack. Alberto El Patron has the look of a wild dog as he climbs back into the ring. El Patron snarls as Castagnoli desperately tries to get to his feet. El Patron goes for a double knee sternum breaker, but Castagnoli blocks and drops El Patron with a powerbomb! Out of nowhere Castagnoli grabs the arm of El Patron and locks in the Arm Bar!

    The crowd goes nuts as Claudio Castagnoli puts Alberto in his own submission!


    “NO!” screams Armando Alejandro from ringside.


    Claudio’s right arm is so damaged that he can only use one arm for the submission……….This allows El Patron to make his way over and get on the ropes for the break!

    Claudio releases and flops on his back, staring up at the light. El Patron rolls out to the apron, stunned by the pain of the submission.

    “This is awesome” chants sound out through Center Stage!

    Alberto El Patron gets to his feet on the apron and Claudio gets to his feet in the ring. Alberto drives his shoulder into the gut of Castagnoli through the ropes. Alberto then takes Castagnoli down with a slingshot dropkick through the ropes, back into the ring! El Patron nails a double knee backbreaker!


    Alberto El Patron then looks down at his opponent…………an evil grin forms on his face.

    El Patron grabs the legs of Castagnoli………………..











    SHARPSHOOTER!









    Alberto El Patron turns Claudio Castagnoli over and has the sharpshooter locked in! El Patron has Castagnoli locked in his own move! El Patron leans back…………..









    Castagnoli reaches out desperately for the ropes, but they are too far away! Castagnoli grits his teeth and screams through gritted teeth at the pain!





    Castagnoli is stuck…………..















    His arm reaches back…………………..













    He grabs the ankle of El Patron………………….

















    CASTAGNOLI REVERSES THE SHARPSHOOTER! CASTAGNOLI GRITS HIS TEETH AND SITS BACK WITH THE SHARPSHOOTER LOCKED ON TIGHT!
















    Alberto screams out in pain! He reaches for the ropes…………..clawing at the canvas!


























    ALBERTO TAPS OUT!

    Winner and FIRST EVER WSW World Champion: Claudio Castagnoli

    The crowd explodes with cheers as Claudio Castagnoli collapses to the mat in exhaustion! The referee raises Castagnoli’s arm and helps him to his feet as Shane McMahon gets in the ring with the WSW World Title. He approaches Claudio Castagnoli and presents him with the belt! Claudio’s face becomes emotional, as tears shine in his eyes as he clutches the gold! Castagnoli drops to his knees and holds the World Championship tightly to his chest as pyro explodes overhead!

    Confetti begins to fall from the rafters!


    Mauro Ranallo – “The fifteen year journey that began on Christmas Eve 2000 in Essen, Germany has reached its zenith tonight, October 6, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia! Claudio Castagnoli has reached the mountain top……he is the first ever WSW World Champion!”

    The crowd chants “Claudio” over and over again, as Castagnoli raises the belt high overhead in the center of the ring as confetti falls around him, as the camera fades out on this episode of Ignition……

    WSW Ignition
    October 13, 2015
    Center Stage Atlanta

    The WSW signature airs.

    We then get a highlight video of last week’s World Title match between Alberto El Patron and Claudio Castagnoli. The highlight covers the tense moments before the bell, the match, and the post-match emotional celebration by Claudio Castagnoli. The highlight package ends with the shot of Castagnoli clutching the WSW World Title.

    “The Outsiders” serves as the soundtrack for the Ignition intro video. We then go inside Center Stage Atlanta where pyro BLASTS to the delight of the crowd.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome to another edition of WSW Ignition on Spike! Coming off the heels of one of the most dramatic matches in the young history of World Series Wrestling, we continue to forge our path tonight as Team Dragon Gate will square off against The Carolina Outlaws in our main event. Team Dragon Gate is looking for retribution against Trevor Lee and Andrew Everett….the men that cost them a shot to win the World Tag Team Titles two weeks ago.”

    The 1812 Overture blares out over the speakers, and the crowd springs to their feet to welcome the first WSW World Champion, Claudio Castagnoli!

    Castagnoli wears a grey suit and a white shirt as he walks out on the stage, the WSW World Title gleaming as it rests on his shoulder. Castagnoli pauses for a moment to soak in the cheers, before walking down the elevated runway to the ring.


    Arn Anderson – “There he is folks, your World Champion. This guy went to hell and back with Alberto El Patron last week. It was every bit the war we thought it was going to be……but at the end of the day….when the dust cleared. Claudio Castagnoli was the man standing, and the spoils go to the victor.”

    Claudio Castagnoli gets into the ring and gets a microphone. He stands in the center of the ring and goes to speak, but pulls the microphone away as the cheers swells around him.

    Chants of “Claudio” break out and soon evolve into “You Deserve It!” Claudio soaks it all in, and it’s clear he moved by the reaction. He holds the World Title belt high and pumps it up and down to the beat of the chants!


    Claudio Castagnoli – “I have been working, training and fighting for fifteen long years for this moment!”

    The crowd cheers loudly again.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “Your cheers and support mean more than you will ever know, and that is why it gives me great pleasure to say this for the first time ever……………

    I AM THE WORLD CHAMPION AND THE BEST PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER IN THE WORLD!”

    Castagnoli holds the belt up high again, as the crowd begins to chant his name again. Claudio looks down at the belt.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “I went to into battle with Alberto El Patron for the right to carry this belt. This (holds belt up) is the most important thing in world, and NO ONE is taking it from me!

    I understand the responsibility that comes with holding this title. You see winning the WSW World Championship was the ultimate high point of my career. Like all of you, my life is constantly evolving. Which is why I am here tonight to make a promise to each and every one you…….winning the World Championship is my greatest accomplishment, but my legacy will be defined as a fighting champion that stands up to take on all combatants and challengers!

    This is a message for anyone who dares to challenge me…………..your opportunity is right here! Take your best shot, but be prepared for the fight of your life!”

    The crowd cheers as the 1812 Overture hits again. Claudio Castagnoli puts the microphone down and stands tall in the center of the ring. He beats his chest with one fist and holds the World Title high!

    Mauro Ranallo – “Claudio Castagnoli has fought tooth and nail for fifteen years to stand in this position. The message is clear, if you want a shot……you better be ready to go to war.”

    Commercials

    Back from commercial the music of PJ Black hits, and he makes his way out to the ring.


    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    PJ Black gets in the ring and bounces around for the start of his match, when the music of Austin Aries hits!

    PJ Black looks around at the referee confused, as Austin Aries makes his way out.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Well that is definitely Austin Aries; however, he is not scheduled for this match against PJ Black.”

    Aries walks down the elevated runway and gets in the ring. He takes Justin Robert’s microphone.

    Austin Aries – “PJ, look I know you have a match scheduled for right now……..and I realize this is a dick move, but I need you to do me a favor and clear out because I have some things I need to get off my chest, and I need to get them off my chest now. So, thank you for understanding……..please get the hell out of my ring.”

    Very matter of fact, Aries climbs through the ropes and hops down to the floor. He retrieves a steel chair from the timekeepers table and gets back in the ring with it. PJ Black has not left yet, and looks on as Aries sets up the chair in the ring and sits in it. Aries looks and sees that Black has not left yet.

    Austin Aries – “Are you slow or something?! I said get the hell out of my ring……you aren’t wrestling tonight!”

    The crowd starts to boo as PJ Black jaws with Austin Aries, protesting.

    Austin Aries slowly gets up out of the chair and looks at PJ Black eye to eye…………….


    Aries then lays into PJ Black! Austin Aries rains right hands to the skull of Black and couples that with some quick knee strikes to the gut.


    Austin Aries then lifts PJ Black up, and drops him down with the Brainbuster!


    PJ Black lays in pain, as the referee tends to him and they head to the floor. The crowd boos as Austin Aries straightens out his t-shirt and then sits back down in the chair and gets his microphone.


    Austin Aries – “I don’t know why you people are booing, I asked him nicely to leave. I am out here right now to see and be heard! It has been a month since this program was last graced with my presence in this ring and that pisses me off! Each week I have sat by and watched guys like Claudio Castagnoli, Alberto El Patron, Fenix and AJ Styles come out here and wrestle…..and get cheered……and get praised…..and the reason this makes me salty is because I AM A BETTER PRO WRESTLER THAN ALL OF THEM. I sat right there in that front row last week for the World Title match and all I could think was…..It should be ME that is World Champion……..I’d certainly put on a better show than that tight suit wearing bald guy.

    The crowd boos as Aries sits back in the chair and crosses his legs.

    Austin Aries – “But instead of crying and bitching about “politics” or “brass rings” or whatever other buzz words are being floated around today, I decided to take action. You see I walked out on that stage last month with a goal of becoming World Champion. That World Title that held by Claudio Castagnoli should be MINE! My shot at glory was ripped away from me in the World Title Tournament on a fluke Hail Mary victory by AJ Styles! Enjoy your time with that belt Claudio, because make no mistake….one day very soon it will be mine.

    But tonight, I am going to sit right here in this ring till I get what I want. And tonight…………………I want AJ Styles!

    That’s right AJ, I’m calling you out! You got one over on me, but I AM THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER LIVED.…….and until you get out here, I’m not going anywhere.”

    Austin Aries tosses the microphone in the air and sits back in his chair grinning around at the crowd as they boo.

    Their boos turn to cheers as AJ Styles’ music hit and AJ comes out on the stage with a pissed off look on his face. AJ makes a bee line down to ring, but Austin Aries doesn’t stand up.

    AJ approaches him and jaws with him.


    AJ Styles – “I’m right here! You want me, you got me!”

    Austin Aries from his chair kicks AJ in the gut! Aries springs out of his chair and lands forearms over Styles’ back and then slaps him in the face!

    Aries winds up for a clothesline, but AJ ducks and starts wailing on Aries with right hands! AJ then dropkicks Aries, who topples over the chair he was sitting in and falls through the ropes to the floor! Austin Aries grabs the chair through the ropes and throws it against the guardrail in frustration with a loud CLANG.

    AJ picks up the microphone in the ring, and beckons to the referee who was out to officiate earlier.


    AJ Styles – “Mr. Official, it looks like you will have to work tonight. Aries, hop in! Let’s do this!”

    The crowd cheers as Aries takes off his shirt on the floor. Aries climbs up to the apron and goes to enter the ring…….but hops back down to the floor. Drawing more boos. Aries walks around the ring, as the referee gets in the squared circle and calls for the bell!

    Match One: Austin Aries vs. “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles

    Austin Aries makes his way up the steel steps and gets in the ring. The two men go to lock up, and they go through a series of chain wrestling holds with Aries getting a waist lock. He tries to rip Styles overhead for a German Suplex, but Styles blocks so Aries takes it down to the mat and two exchange a series of mat wrestling holds. Aries gets a rear chinlock applied and shouts “WRESTLING 101.” AJ works his way up and elbows out. The two men continue to feel each other out with a rope running sequence featuring clothesline ducks, slides through the legs, and leapfrogs…..till Styles pops Aries in the head with a picture perfect Pele kick!

    Styles lands a flurry of offense. He drives forearms, chops, knees, and kicks into Aries. Aries in desperation ducks a spinning heel kick and grabs Styles for an inverted DDT, but Styles gets out and hits a wicked inverted suplex! Austin Aries rolls out of the ring to the floor while AJ shouts out in triumph in the ring.

    Aries grabs his head as he takes a breather on the floor. AJ measures his target……he runs………he springs to the top rope………..



    But he bounces down to the apron as Aries was playing possum and runs out of the way of the would be aerial attack. Instead Styles nails a running dropkick on the apron to Aries, sending him crashing into the steel guardrail!

    AJ Styles feels the energy of the crowd and he goes to roll Aries back into the ring, but Aries rakes the eyes of Styles! AJ grabs his face in pain, and Aries takes the opening and gets in the ring…..he bounces off the ropes and nails a baseball slide that sends Styles crashing back first into the timekeepers table! AJ grabs the small of his back, as Aries picks him up and whips him into the steel steps with authority! AJ bangs into the steps with a thud.

    Aries takes things back into ring where he hits a draping corkscrew neckbreaker….cover……..




    But Styles kicks out! Aries then smiles to the crowd as he grinds away on Styles with submissions, working the lower back of Styles. Aries tries to lock in a Camel Clutch, but Styles battles out and gets to his feet! The two men trade chops back and forth to the Yeah/Boo effect from the crowd, but Aries sends Styles down again after ducking a clothesline and connecting with a discus elbow!

    Aries yells “I’m a man of my word” as he ascends the top turnbuckle. He measures Styles and leaps off for the missile dropkick………………………..





    AJ Styles moves! Austin Aries crashes and burns!



    AJ sees his opening and grabs Aries’ legs……………….and monkey flips him into the corner! Aries eats the top turnbuckle! AJ grabs Aries and picks him up with a fireman’s carry……….



    And drops him with a facebuster from the fireman’s carry! Cover…….


    1…




    2…..



    Kick Out!

    Austin Aries just does kick out! AJ Styles drops Aries again with his discus clothesline. AJ feels the momentum as he circles Austin Aries. He grabs Aries and sets up for the Styles Clash!


    Aries bites in the inside of Styles leg to avoid the move!

    Styles jumps around in pain! Aries then clotheslines Styles over the top rope, but AJ grabs the top rope and skins the cat to get back into the ring! Styles springs to the middle rope and goes for his springboard flip inverted DDT……..but Aries fights his way out of it with a back suplex.

    Both men scramble to their feet to try and get the advantage as Justin Robert’s voice sounds out through Center Stage.

    Justin Roberts – “One minute remaining……one minute remaining.”

    The men jockey back and forth for position as they hustle to try and get a victory. They engage in a series of pin attempts, and pin reversals…..each time the men kick out. Styles looks for the Styles Clash and Aries looks for the Brainbuster but neither men can fit their finisher. Styles goes for the Styles Clash, but Aries backdrops out of it.

    Justin Roberts – “……ten seconds remaining…..”

    Aries goes for the Last Chancery, but as goes to lock it in, Styles reverses and goes for the Calf Killer! Styles gets the Calf Killer locked in………………..as the bell rings for a time limit draw!

    Winner: Time Limit Draw

    Styles gets to his feet upset as the referee signals towards the timekeepers table indicating the draw. Austin Aries gets out of the ring and sits on the elevated runway smiling as the crowd starts to chant “Let them fight.” Styles looks at Aries from the ring with a look of disgust as Aries gets to a knee and shouts “Not this time Styles…..not this time.”

    Commercials


    We return from commercials where we zoom in to the announce position where Mauro Ranallo and Chael Sonnen sit……


    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome back to Ignition here on Spike. Just before the commercial break we saw a back and forth match between Austin Aries and AJ Styles end in a time limit draw.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Well Austin Aries called AJ Styles out and we got a HELL of a match. These two guys are show stealers and I want to see them lock up again.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “Well we may have clarification on that just yet.....right now let’s send things down to the ring where Arn Anderson is standing with a special announcement.”

    The camera pans down to the ring where Arn Anderson stands and draws respectful cheers from the Atlanta crowd that he spent so many years performing for.

    Arn Anderson – “Thank you Atlanta for that ovation. You know I spent many years in this very building wrestling some of the toughest son of a guns the sport of professional wrestling has ever seen…..guys like Wahoo McDaniel, Magnum TA, and The Rock n’ Roll Express. I have lived a life I could have only dreamed of, and there are two things that I am most proud of when I look back at my career.

    One of those is being a member of the most elite fraternity in the history of pro wrestling….the Four Horsemen (he makes the 4 sign with his fingers to a big cheer) and the other is being a proud World Television Champion. This is a workhorse championship, because the man that holds this title must defend it each week. You cannot be ordinary to become a World Television Champion, you MUST be extraordinary. WSW is resurrecting the prestige of the Television Title.

    It gives me great pleasure to stand in this ring and announce that next week on Ignition we will crown the first ever WSW World Television Champion in a 15 Man Gauntlet Match.

    Now we just saw a time limit draw and all these fans were chanting something very specific…..”Let them fight” so by decree of WSW Owner Shane McMahon, the first two entrants into the 15 Man Gauntlet Match will be AJ Styles and Austin Aries!”

    The crowd cheers.

    Mauro Ranallo – “What an announcement. It is only fitting that the greatest World Television Champion of all time and our broadcast partner Arn Anderson is the one to break that news!”

    Chael Sonnen – “We will crown a Television Champion next week, and the man who wins and defends that belt successfully twenty consecutive times will be rewarded with a shot at the World Championship!”

    Commercials

    We return from commercials to go backstage with Todd Keneley who is standing at the interview position with The Carolina Outlaws.


    Todd Keneley – “Welcome back to Ignition, my name is Todd Keneley and I am joined at this time by Trevor Lee and Andrew Everett, The Carolina Outlaws. Gentlemen, you have caused waves in WSW since day one, but in particular you have drawn the ire of Team Dragon Gate. Tonight, there is nothing that is going to separate you from them. What are your thoughts on your match tonight?”

    Trevor Lee – “Team Dragon Gate…..tonight is on YOU. For some reason YOU decided that you could hang with The Carolina Outlaws when we prove time and time again that WE are the benchmark tag team in WSW! Andrew and I are going to stomp all over y’alls ass like Godzilla.”

    Andrew Everett – “I’m pissed that we have to waste our time with Goku and Gohan tonight. It’s dollar dance time down at The Pink Pony…….but business is business and Team Dragon Gate we are going to break you in a way that even the “mighty” Young Bucks will notice.”

    The Carolina Outlaws storm off and we fade back to the ring, where we jump right into our next match…

    Justin Roberts – “The following contest is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit….”

    Shelton Benjamin makes his way out to a steady stream of boos. Benjamin jaws with the crowd on his way to the ring.

    Nick Aldis makes his way out next!


    Match Two: Shelton Benjamin vs. Nick Aldis

    The bell rings and the two men approach each other in the center of the ring. Benjamin uses his quickness to maneuver around Nick Aldis. Flying in for quick arm wringers and peppering Aldis with strikes. Aldis gets frustrated and catches Benjamin coming off the ropes with a clothesline that turns Shelton inside out! Nick Aldis rips Shelton off the match and drops him stomach first over the top rope with a pumphandle slam!

    Shelton gasps for air as Aldis shoots in and hits a swinging neckbreaker. Nick Aldis stands up and parades around the ring, flexing as the crowd has a mixed reaction for him. Aldis’ showboating catches up to him and Benjamin fires back with forearms and kicks and takes Aldis off his feet with a leg lariat. Shelton stomps away on Aldis and climbs to the top turnbuckle………


    Shelton leaps for a crossbody………….


    But Aldis catches him! In a show of incredible strength Aldis hoists Benjamin to his shoulders and drops him with the Tormentum (twisting Samoan Drop). Aldis then pulls off one of his elbow pads and climbs to the top! Aldis flexes on the top turnbuckle and flies……..




    He connects with a flying elbow! Aldis drives his elbow deep into the sternum of Shelton Benjamin. Aldis then yells “I AM A KING!” and locks Benjamin in the King’s Lynn Cloverleaf……………..



    Aldis sits back and Benjamin has no choice but to tap out!

    Winner: Nick Aldis

    Mauro Ranallo – “What a showing by Nick Aldis. A dominating, focused effort by the Englishman.”

    Nick Aldis has a microphone handed to him

    Nick Aldis – “Every king needs a crown. And next week, I will claim mine when I win the Gauntlet and become the first World Television Champion!”

    Mauro Ranallo – “Well the hits just keep coming tonight! Nick Aldis is a very dangerous man and he has a hunger for gold.”

    Just then we get static on the screen followed by different test pattern screens. A voice is heard….

    Voice – “The following announcement has been paid for by The Young Bucks.”

    The static then cuts to Matt and Nick Jackson walking down the Sunset Strip, their WSW World Tag Team Titles draped over their shoulders.

    Matt Jackson – “Oh hello…………Matt and Nick Jackson---The Young Bucks---here….anddddd we’re pretty much amazing.”

    Nick Jackson – “No matter where we go, The Young Bucks are in demand……even here on The Sunset Strip. (a random man walks by and Nick stops and address the man) Excuse me sir…..Too Sweet me…..

    Nick Jackson offers the Too Sweet hand sign and the stranger obliges!

    Nick Jackson – “(looking back over his shoulder) Dude, I think that guy was in Motley Crue.”

    Matt Jackson – “Don’t worry folks we haven’t left you high and dry. In fact next week we will be returning to the friendly confines of Center Stage….so get your snacks ready, because the Super Kick Party is rolling back into town!”

    Nick Jackson – “The Young Bucks equal money…………and success……..and tag team greatness. Hey Matt do you know what I pay more mortgage with?”

    Matt Jackson – “What’s that?”

    Nick Jackson – “Superkicks and 450 Splashes.”

    Matt Jackson – “You too?! FYI moonsaults are an acceptable form of payment too.”

    Nick Jackson – “We’re The Young Bucks, and we’re not for everyone……but that’s pretty much the point.”

    Matt and Nick Jackson tap their belts together like beer bottles and walk down the Sunset Strip as the static and test patterns return.

    Voice – “The preceding announcement was paid for by The Young Bucks.”

    Commercials


    We return from commercials where Mauro Ranallo narrates video highlights of the bad blood between Team Dragon Gate and The Carolina Outlaws. The tension started when The Carolina Outlaws attacked Team Dragon Gate and The Young Bucks following the two team’s match on September 15. A match between Team Dragon Gate and The Carolina Outlaws on September 22 ended in a no contest when the referee lost control of the match as it dissolved into an all-out brawl. Finally, in the four team elimination match to crown the first WSW World Tag Team Champions….Team Dragon Gate eliminated The Carolina Outlaws….but The Outlaws returned and interfered leading to TDG’s elimination and ending their shot at the World Tag Team Titles.


    “Rebel Road” by Big Smo hits and The Carolina Outlaws walk out on the stage. Trevor Lee and Andrew Everett have not gained any friends from the fans at Center Stage. They get in the ring and jaw with the fans.

    Team Dragon Gate’s music hits and Masato Yoshino and Genki Horiguchi walk out on the stage. The two men then charge down to the ring………not being able to wait for a chance to get their fans on The Carolina Outlaws!


    Match Three: The Carolina Outlaws vs. Team Dragon Gate

    Team Dragon Gate charges the ring, but The Carolina Outlaws are waiting for them and get the drop. Trevor Lee and Andrew Everett get early blows in on Team Dragon Gate. Masato Yoshino and Genki Horiguchi bounce off the ropes with a breakneck pace and send the Outlaws tumbling through the ropes with dropkicks. Yoshino and Horiguchi continue to run the ropes at an insane pace……they bounce off the ropes…….springboard on the top rope……………..

    And crash down on The Carolina Outlaws with flip dives! The crowd cheers as Team Dragon Gate stands proudly at ringside after their aerial attack. Masato Yoshino throws Andrew Everett back into the ring. Yoshino sends Everett into the ropes and drops him to the canvas with a high rotation tilt-a-whirl powerslam! Yoshino continues the attack by driving knees into the chest of Everett! He whips Andrew Everett into the ropes, but Everett ducks under a spinning kick attempt…..but Yoshino takes him down with a leg lariat. Yoshino throws Everett into the corner and lands a dropkick to the chest of Andrew Everett……he bounces off the chest of Everett and dropkicks Trevor Lee off the apron! Masato Yoshino is fired up and he tags in Genki Horiguchi.

    Horiguchi comes in the ring and lights up Everett’s chest with chops and a bulldog. Horiguchi whips Everett into the corner and nails a back handspring elbow. Horiguchi sprints across the ring looking for a running a boot……..


    But Everett gets out of the way at the last second! Horiguchi’s leg is extended and stuck on the top rope. Everett lands some kicks to the underside of Horiguchi’s leg and takes him down with a hangman’s neckbreaker! Everett makes his way over to his corner and tags in Trevor Lee. Lee slingshots himself to the top rope and springs off with a moonsault!

    Trevor Lee then grinds down on Horiguchi on the mat with knee strikes and rubs Horiguchi’s face down on the canvas. Lee fishhooks Horiguchi and rams both his knees into his back! Trevor Lee then rocks back and sets up a surfboard submission on Horiguchi! Genki cries out in pain, as Trevor Lee has the surfboard locked in fully! Andrew Everett enters the ring, jumps…………and stomps down on the chest of Genki Horiguchi!

    Masato Yoshino enters the ring to attack Andrew Everett, but the referee pulls him back into his corner. The Carolina Outlaws then doubleteam Genki Horiguchi behind the referee’s back while he is admonishing Masasto Yoshino. Andrew Everett tags back in officially and works over Horiguchi some more, capped off with a sitout spinebuster Andrew Everett runs over and knocks Yoshino off the apron!

    Andrew Everett lifts Horiguchi on his shoulders in an electric chair. Trevor Lee climbs to the top!


    But Masato Yoshino shoves Lee off the top from the floor………….Lee gets crotched on the top rope!


    In the ring, Horiguchi transitions on Everett’s shoulders and lands right hands the head of Everett………….he then snaps of a hurricanrana! Everett tumbles down to the canvas. Horiguchi needs to make a tag……………………..



    Masato Yoshino jumps up and down in the corner urging his partner to make the tag.




    Genki Horiguchi inches his way over……………….but Andrew Everett grabs his foot!



    Horiguchi then lights up the side of Andrew Everett’s head with a kick! Horiguchi lunges and TAGS in Masato Yoshino!


    Masato Yoshino flies into the ring and lays waste to The Carolina Outlaws with a series of kicks and chops! Yoshino drops Andrew Everett with a beautiful butterfly suplex! Yoshino is feeling it, but Trevor Lee clips his knees from behind! The referee admonishes Trevor Lee and sends him back to his corner. Andrew Everett drives uppercuts and elbows to Yoshino and officially tags in Trevor Lee. The Carolina Outlaws set up for White Lighting………..




    But Yoshino counters with a double rollup!


    1….




    2….




    Kickout!

    The Carolina Outlaws kickout and go for another two on one attack……………………………..




    But Genki Horiguchi flies in the ring and takes out Andrew Everett with a Koppo Kick! Everett flops like a dead fish through the ropes to the apron. Horiguchi doesn’t stop there. He charges, leaps over the ropes…………………….and spikes Everett down to the floor with a sunset flip powerbomb!


    “Holy sh*t!” chants break out as Andrew Everett lands with a thud on the black mats that cover the floor. In the ring Masato Yoshino takes down Andrew Everett with a running knee strike, immediately dropped into a DDT! Yoshino slingshots himself to the top turnbuckle…….







    DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!



    1….





    2…..






    3….



    Winners: Team Dragon Gate

    Masato Yoshino gets his hand raised in victory, as Genki Horiguchi crawls back into the ring from the floor! Yoshino raises his partner’s hand, as Team Dragon Gate has defeated The Carolina Outlaws. Trevor Lee clutching his chest rolls out to the apron and flops to the floor next to his partner Andrew Everett who lays motionless after the sick sunset flip powerbomb he took from the apron. Team Dragon Gate stands tall!

    The camera pans from the ring to the announce table where Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson sit.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Standing tall in the ring, Team Dragon Gate. Masato Yoshino and Genki Horiguchi making a statement to the tag team division.”

    Arn Anderson – “That’s a statement that will be noticed by the Motor City Machine Guns, and yes…..the WSW World Tag Team Champions, The Young Bucks.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Don’t forget the huge news dropped by Arn himself tonight. Next week here on Ignition we will crown the first ever WSW World Television Champion in a 15 Man Gauntlet Match, and we know that AJ Styles and Austin Aries will be entrants one and two.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “All of that and so much more next week here on Ignition. For my broadcast partners Chael Sonnen and Arn Anderson, I’m Mauro Ranallo saying goodnight from Center Stage.”

    WSW World Television Champion:
    WSW World Tag Team Champions: The Young Bucks (9/29/15)

    The WSW signature airs followed by the Ignition opening video set to “The Outsiders” by Eric Church.


    We then cut inside Center Stage Atlanta where pyro explodes on stage to cheers!



    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome to Atlanta where tonight the World Television Championship will take center stage, as we will crown our first World Television Champion in a 15 Man Gauntlet match. “


    The music of The Young Bucks hits and the crowd jumps in anticipation, as the World Tag Team Champions make their way out on stage! Matt and Nick Jackson are wearing their World Tag Team Titles around their waist, the duo play air guitar and pop champagne bottles of stage spraying the crowd as they make their way down the elevated runway to the ring.


    Chael Sonnen – “Speaking of champions, here are the current—and first—WSW World Tag Team Champions, The Young Bucks. These guys know how to have a party, they have been celebrating their victory for three weeks.”


    The Young Bucks get in the ring and continue to spray the champagne at the crowd. They strike their trademark pose in the center of the ring before Nick Jackson grabs a microphone.


    Nick Jackson – “Ladies and gentlemen, your heroes are here…….The Young Bucks are the World Tag Team Champions…..and just like the Wolfpack……we are in THE HOUSE!”

    Matt Jackson – “That’s right Nick, and for all the people out there who may have any questions……you are looking at the greatest tag team in the world! We are the air guitar playing, superkicking, 450 splashing…..playboys of pro wrestling!

    For the past couple of weeks people have been asking and asking…..Matt and Nick, we love watching your victory party in California, but when are you going to get back in the ring? Well, we are here tonight to party in Atlanta, but next week…..your favorite team will be back in action! The Young Bucks are equal opportunity champions, and if anyone wants to take a shot at our lifestyle, then the door is wide open!”

    Nick Jackson – “Wait a minute Matt, we are the richest, most dominate, and most in demand tag team in the history of the universe. Are you saying we should issue an open challenge and put that all on the line?”

    Matt Jackson – “That’s exactly what I’m saying.”

    Nick Jackson – (nods approvingly) “Yea, that makes sense to me.”

    Nick walks over to the corner and lays/lounges across the top rope.

    Matt Jackson – “So the challenge is out there, anyone that wants to take their best shot at The Young Bucks……come on down. We’ll shake your hands and then put the World Tag Team Titles on the line next week.”

    The Young Bucks wait in the ring. Nick lying on the ropes in the corner, Matt leaning against the ropes………the crowd waits in eager anticipation………







    The music of the Motor City Machine Guns hits!


    The crowd erupts in cheers as Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin walk out on stage. Shelley and Sabin soak in the cheers and point down to the ring where Matt and Nick Jackson nod and mockingly applaud.


    The Motor City Machine Guns make their way down to the ring. Nick Jackson gets down from his perch in the corner and The Young Bucks stand on one side of the ring, The Motor City Machine Guns on the other.


    Alex Shelley – “Is it okay if we grace the royal presence of The Young Bucks in the ring?”

    Nick Jackson – “Would you look at that…..its The Motor City Guns. Congrats for coming out guys, if I remember correctly didn’t we Meltzer Driver you to hell to win the World Tag Titles in the first place?”

    Chris Sabin – “You know lets knock all the shtick off. It’s real simple why we are out here. We tore the house down the last time we got together. You’ve got something we want, so let’s make this thing official.”

    Matt Jackson – “Chris Sabin, you know how to speak to my heart. Nick and I are both men of our word, so since you had the cajones to come down here and answer our challenge……we will put the belts on the line next week here on Ignition.”

    Matt looks at Nick and The Young Bucks offer their hands for a handshake to the agreement. The Motor City Machine Guns look cautiously at the hands…..

    Nick Jackson – “You can shake our hands, I promise that Matt hasn’t been on Tinder today.”

    Shelley looks at Sabin and the Guns extend their hands and the teams shake hands! The match is official!



    The Guns go to pull away, but The Young Bucks don’t let go of their hands and pull them back in closer! The crowd begins to buzz, as The Young Bucks talk a little trash to the Guns. Matt and Nick Jackson wink at Shelley and Sabin before letting go of their hands. The Young Bucks lean back into the ropes and flip themselves over the ropes back onto the elevated runway. The Jackson brothers take their belts off and hold them high overhead, as Shelley and Sabin look on from the ring.



    Mauro Ranallo – “Well I guess that makes it official. Next week here on Ignition it will be two of the top tag teams in professional wrestling squaring off, as The Motor City Machine Guns take on the World Tag Team Champions, The Young Bucks.”


    Commercials


    We return from commercials and we zoom into the announce position on stage. Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson sit at the announce table.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome back to Ignition here on Spike. My name is Mauro Ranallo and I am joined as always by my broadcast partners Chael Sonnen and Arn Anderson. A big announcement was made before the break, next week it will be The Motor City Machine Guns vs. The Young Bucks for the World Tag Team Championships.”

    Arn Anderson – “These were two of the teams that tore it up in the four way elimination match three weeks ago to crown the inaugural champions, I’m expecting the fireworks to fly again next week.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “Plenty of action to come on this broadcast, as we will crown a new champion tonight! In just a few moments the 15 Man Gauntlet match will begin. The winner will become the first WSW World Television Champion.”

    Chael Sonnen – “As Arn explained last week, the World Television Champion must be a workhorse. Each week they will be required to defend their belt here on Ignition; however, twenty consecutive successful title defenses will allow the Television Champion to cash in for a shot at the World Title.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “So much at stake here tonight. The rules for the Gauntlet are as follows. (graphics appear on screen as Mauro talks) Two men will start the match in the ring, an additional wrestler will enter every 90 seconds. Eliminations occur by throwing an opponent over the top rope and having both their feet hit the floor. As we learned last week, the first two entrants will be AJ Styles and Austin Aries.”

    The camera pans down to the ring where Justin Roberts introduces the match.

    The music of AJ Styles hits, and sparks rain down from above on the stage as “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles makes his way out as entrant #1. AJ gets in the ring to big cheers. The cheers turn to jeers as Austin Aries makes his entrance.

    WSW Ignition
    Center Stage Atlanta
    October 27, 2015


    WSW World Champion: Claudio Castagnoli (10/6/15)
    WSW World Television Champion: AJ Styles (10/20/15)
    WSW World Tag Team Champions: The Young Bucks (9/29/15)


    The WSW signature airs followed by a highlight video package covering last week’s 15 Man Gauntlet Match. AJ Styles survived a war of attrition and was the last man standing, last eliminating Uhaa Nation in dramatic fashion to become the first ever WSW World Television Champion!


    The highlight video fades into the Ignition intro video set to “The Outsiders” by Eric Church. We then cut to Center Stage Atlanta where pyro EXPLODES on stage!


    The camera pans around the crowd at Center Stage, before zooming to the announce position on stage where Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson welcome us to the broadcast!



    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome ladies and gentlemen to Ignition. Professional wrestling has returned to North America! My name is Mauro Ranallo and I am joined by my broadcast partners Arn Anderson and Chael Sonnen. As you saw in the opening, AJ Styles became the first ever World Television Champion last week, surviving the 15 Man Gauntlet Match despite being entrant #1. His celebration will be short lived as his first title defense will occur tonight!”

    Arn Anderson – “We’ve talked about it before Mauro. The World Television Champion is going to have to be a phenomenal wrestler, as they will have to defend their title each and every week here on Ignition. You have to adapt, because there are fantastic wrestlers on this roster, and all of them have different styles.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “That’s not the only championship match this week, as the World Tag Team Titles will be defended in our main event. The champions, The Young Bucks, defend against The Motor City Machine Guns. The Young Bucks are known as showmen. They are cocky and confident, but they backup their talk with perhaps the most unique tag team wrestling ability in the world. The Motor City Machine Guns, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin, take on the mantra of their hometown, as they don’t say much, they just let their action in the ring speak for them.”

    Chael Sonnen – “In addition to those championship matches, we are going to hear from Alberto El Patron. The prizefighter who was so close to capturing the WSW World Title three weeks ago has not been seen since. Tonight, he will make his first public appearance since that match with Claudio Castagnoli.”


    The bell rings and the voice of Justin Roberts is heard, as the camera pans away from the announcers down to the ring.


    Justin Roberts – “Your opening contest of the evening is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    Austin Aries’ music hits and Aries comes out on stage posing cockily.

    As Aries heads down to the ring we see highlights from two weeks ago of Aries’ “sit-in” where he hijacked a scheduled match featuring PJ Black and delivered his Brainbuster to Black. We then see highlights of the 15 Man Gauntlet Match last week where PJ Black eliminated Austin Aries. Aries couldn’t let sleeping dogs lie, and he eliminated PJ Black from the floor. All of this has led to this match tonight!


    PJ Black’s music hits and Black comes out on stage. There is no posing from Black, as he sprints down the elevated runway to the ring!



    Match One: Austin Aries vs. PJ Black

    Black sprints down to the ring, but Aries is waiting for him and he begins to lay into Black with stomps and kicks! Aries uses Black’s over-aggression to his advantage and controls the early portion of the match using a variety of strikes, suplexes, and submissions to ground Black. At each passing moment, Aries yells that he’s the “greatest man that ever lived!” Aries whips Black into the rope and sends him tumbling through the air with a running knee lift! Black grabs his midsection and rolls to the apron gasping for air, as Aries cockily struts around the ring and poses on the ropes.

    Black goes to the floor to recover………

    Aries sees his opponent on the outside and sprints to bounce off the ropes……

    He charges across the ring……






    And puts on the brakes. He feigns the suicide dive. Aries doesn’t hesitate though, and he bounces off the ropes in another sprint and attempts a baseball slide, but Black moves out of the way!

    Black sends Aries head over heels over the ring steps with a drop kick on the outside! Black charges and uses the ring steps as a springboard and crashes into Aries and rains down a series of blows. Black takes the frustrations of his elimination out on Aries with each punch, elbow, and forearm. Black slings Aries into the steel guardrail before acknowledging the referee who has been screaming at Black. PJ Black gets back in the ring, as Austin Aries remains on his knees on the floor.

    Black spins around in the ring looking at the crowd at Center Stage. A buzz starts, as PJ Black charges…….






    PJ Black connects with a flying suicide dive OVER THE RING POST!


    The two bodies collide and crash into a heap, smacking against the steel guardrail!


    “Holy Shit” chants break out, as PJ Black just flew through the air!

    Both men lay on the floor as the ten count begins. At the count of 7 PJ Black rolls Austin Aries back into the ring and goes for the cover….

    SHOULDER UP! Aries is able to get his shoulder up to stay alive. PJ Black gets to his feet and urges Aries to get to his feet. Aries uses the ropes to regain his vertical base, but Black tries for a discus elbow…..

    Aries ducks and drops Black with a hangman’s neckbreaker. Aries wastes no time in putting together an offensive rally, and he monkeyflips Black into the corner sending the South African face first into the top turnbuckle. Aries peppers Black’s chest with chops.

    Black just refuses to say die, and he begins to fire back with chops of his own! Black connects with a round house kick to the head! Black attempts for a powerbomb, but Aries counters………..and violently sends PJ Black into the corner with a BUCKLE BOMB! Aries follows this up with a vicious running boot that connects square to the jaw of PJ Black! The crowd “oohs” at the painful boot. With an arrogant approach, Aries grabs PJ Black….positions him…….and connects with the Brainbuster!

    Winner: Austin Aries

    Austin Aries pulls his hand away from the referee and proceeds to inflict further damage on PJ Black with some added stomps and insults to the defeated man. Aries struts around the ring for a few seconds and grabs the microphone.

    Austin Aries – “Get ready. A storm is coming!”

    Austin Aries throws the microphone into the air, which causes it to land with a thud. Aries gets out of the ring and slowly backs up the elevated walkway with his arms held high.



    Commercials


    Back from commercials, the music of “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles hits and AJ walks out onto the stage through a rain of sparks from above—the WSW World Television Championship gleaming around his waist. AJ slaps his chest and poses for the crowd as he walks down to the ring. The crowd chants the name of the native Georgian, as he enters the ring and grabs a microphone.


    AJ Styles – “Atlanta, Georgia…my name is AJ Styles and I am your……….World Television Champion!”

    AJ takes the belt off his waist and holds it high above his head to cheers.

    AJ Styles – “This championship is a blessing, but it is not without its challenges. You see this title must be defended each week here of Ignition, and if I can defend it successfully for twenty straight weeks…..then I get a shot at the ultimate prize, the WSW World Title. Some people would shy away from this……but I am not most people. Each week I am going to come down to this very ring and put this very belt on the line to anyone in locker room that thinks they can take it from me! My challenge has been issued…….batter up!”

    A buzz starts to flow through Center Stage, as AJ Styles takes his ring jacket off. He hands the World Television Championship to the referee and starts to bounce up and down in the ring. All eyes turn to the entrance stage to see who will accept the challenge from Styles.





    The music of……………………………….FENIX hits!


    The crowd jumps to their feet, as Fenix makes his way out on the stage accompanied by Rey Mysterio Jr.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Fenix was one of the final four in last week’s gauntlet match, and now tonight he is looking to vault himself to championship gold.”

    Fenix slings himself over the ropes and poses in the corner. Mysterio Jr. enters the ring and nods respectfully towards AJ Styles before offering some final words of advice to Fenix. Justin Roberts handles the formal ring introductions.

    Match Two: WSW World Television Championship – Fenix (w/ Rey Mysterio Jr.) vs. “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles (c)

    Fenix bounces around in his corner, while AJ looks on determined—attempting to size up the luchador. The two men approach each other and slap hands in a show of mutual respect. The two men start with a surprisingly slow pace as they bounce around each other attempting to feel each other out. The two men lock up and jockey for position with each other. Both men are able to lock in arm wringers and wrist locks, but each time one man gains the leverage advantage, the other is able to counter. AJ frees himself and attempts a spinning heel kick, but Fenix ducks and lights Styles’ chest up with chops and overhand slaps. Fenix bounces off the ropes, but runs right into one of Styles’ picture perfect dropkicks. Fenix hits the canvas and rolls outside.

    AJ Styles wastes no time, and he bounces off the ropes in a dead sprint and slings himself over the top rope……..but feigns the dive and lands on the apron. Fenix was playing possum, but the veteran Styles smelled it in the water. Styles sends Fenix flying with a running dropkick off the apron! Styles rolls Fenix back into the ring, where the young luchador quickly gets to his feet and pops Styles with kick to the side of the head. The World Television Champion is dazed as Fenix lands another kick……..and another! Fenix sends Styles through the ropes and back to the floor with a jumping back kick! Without missing a second, Fenix bounces off the ropes and flies over the top rope with a twisting corkscrew plancha!

    The crowd begins to chant “Lucha,” as Fenix rolls Styles back into the ring. Fenix slings himself over the ropes from the apron and hits a slingshot legdrop. Cover!

    2….


    Kick out! AJ Styles kicks out and attempts to regain his vertical base, as Fenix runs the ropes again. Fenix goes for a low angle dropkick, but Styles hits the deck to avoid getting his head taken off! Fenix quickly recovers and both men scramble to their feet to avoid being left prone.

    The two men then engage in a battle of strikes. Fenix attacking with chops and slaps, Styles attacking with forearms. Fenix bounces to the middle rope to shift the tempo of the match and attempts a tornado DDT, but Styles blocks and catches him!

    In an impressive feat of strength, Styles hoists Fenix up for a delayed vertical suplex! Styles holds Fenix high for a solid 10 seconds before sending him crashing down to the canvas! Styles covers!

    2….


    Kick out! Fenix stays alive and keeps fighting. Styles attempts to grind down Fenix, working him over with submissions, but Fenix refuses to stay grounded and continues to battle back. Fenix goes back to his kicks. Slamming his leg into the chest of Styles, Fenix attempts to chop the World Television Champion down. Fenix slings Styles against the ropes and the two men hit the ropes and run across the ring, leap frogging and ducking clotheslines attempts. Styles attempts to catch Fenix with The Phenomenon out of nowhere, but Fenix counters!

    Fenix is the first man in WSW to avoid The Phenomenon and he counters with a reverse vertical suplex! Fenix stays on the attack and plants Styles with a low dropkick. He covers!

    Kick Out!


    The crowd gasps and jumps up and down as AJ Styles stays alive! Fenix’s eyes grow big under his mask as he was just one second away from being World Television Champion. Fenix throws Styles into the corner and attempts a running corner dropkick, but Styles moves out of the way and Fenix crashes and burns into the corner! Styles uses the corner to vault himself in the air and he smashes into Fenix with a wicked knee drop!

    Styles climbs to the top turnbuckle, Fenix continues to rise from the ashes and kicks the legs out from under Styles, crotching him on the top turnbuckle. Fenix then pops Styles in the head with a jumping kick! Fenix begins to climb the corner as well and attempts a hurricanrana!

    But Styles catches him and blocks! Styles grabs Fenix and jumps off the middle rope with a Super Styles Clash!

    The Center Stage crowd jumps in excitement as Styles spikes Fenix down!

    Commercials

    Back from commercial, we cut to a video package featuring the Boston skyline at night. The familiar guitar riff hits, and Motley Crue’s “Wild Side” belts out. A 1986 red Ferrari Testarossa zooms through the streets and alleys of Boston. As the car zooms past we see Mike Bennett in the driver’s side wearing a dark suit and sunglasses. In the passenger seat with her hair blowing like a 1980’s supermodel is Maria. Bennett’s voice narrates the package.


    Mike Bennett – “Remember that guy in high school who got all the girls, had the coolest car, and was just better than everyone else? Yea that was me. And that’s how I still live my life.”

    The Ferrari zooms to a stop outside a building, and Mike Bennett and Maria exit the car looking like a Hollywood power couple. The two stride towards the camera together.

    Mike Bennett – “Money, fame, glory….all of these are things people say they want out of professional wrestling. Me……I already have those things. So, what drives Mike Bennett?”

    Bennett and Maria walk into a building and the camera cuts to darkness before it reveals Mike Bennett lounging in a throne while Maria pops a bottle of champagne.

    Mike Bennett – “I’m obsessed with being king. Welcome to my empire WSW, I’m your new ruler.”

    Maria pours champagne in a glass and Mike Bennett smugly toasts the camera.

    The camera fades back to Center Stage and then pans to the ring where Todd Keneley is standing with a microphone.


    Todd Keneley – “Ladies and gentlemen welcome back to Ignition here on Spike. My name is Todd Keneley, and at this time I would like to introduce Alberto El Patron!”

    The sounds of a Spanish guitar sound out through Center Stage, and Alberto El Patron slowly walks out on the stage accompanied by Armando Alejandro. Both men wear immaculate suits, but the normally cocky El Patron, is more somber tonight. He wears a foul expression on his face as walks down to the ring. This does not stop the Center Stage crowd from escorting him down to the ring with boos.

    Alberto El Patron and Armando Alejandro enter the ring and El Patron stares Todd Keneley from head to toe before stepping up to him for the interview.


    Todd Keneley – “Alberto, we have not seen or heard from you in three weeks. The first question I want to ask you is, where is your head at right now?”

    Alberto El Patron glares at Todd Keneley and then turns his gaze to the crowd.

    Alberto El Patron – “My head. My head, my mind, my everything is stuck on a failure. My life is about success, my life is about domination…………..yet all those things that are so common to me, I have not felt recently.”

    Todd Keneley – “Are all these feelings coming about from your World Title match with Claudio Castagnoli?”

    Alberto El Patron – “October 6, 2015 is the date of my greatness weakness. On that date I was defeated by an ant, a peasant. And not only did I lose, I lost my opportunity at immortality. I lost my chance to truly be a conquistador. For three weeks-----21 days----I have been living a split reality. My left eye only sees me fail in my match, but my right eye sees the future. It sees the path of destruction I will wage till I can claim my rightful title of World Champion.”

    The boos begin to pick up again as Alberto El Patron emphasizes the words “World Champion.”

    Todd Keneley – “The WSW World Title is the crown jewel, and it is painfully clear that claiming it is your mission. How are you preparing yourself to earn a shot at Claudio Castagnoli’s title?”

    Alberto El Patron – (spits on the canvas) “I do not earn anything…..I take it! I have already proved that I am a dangerous man, I already have a list of victims. I will stop at nothing till I break the arm of Claudio Castagnoli and claim my destiny!”

    …………….



    “The Only Way I Know” by Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Eric Church belts out at Center Stage to interrupt Alberto El Patron. The crowd cheers wildly when…..




    James Storm walks out on stage!



    Storm walks out with a look of pure determination on his face.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Well ‘The Tennessee Cowboy’ James Storm was one of those so called ‘victims’ of Alberto El Patron. Remember El Patron shattered that beer bottle over the head of Storm after their match in the World Title Tournament.”

    Arn Anderson – “Believe me, a wild dog never forgets how to bite, and James Storm isn’t here to talk.”

    Storm takes a long drink from his beer bottle before getting into the ring. Todd Keneley turns to Storm who pushes him out of the way! Storm squares off toe to toe with Alberto El Patron! Storm points to his forehead and screams!

    James Storm – “You remember me! You busted me open. I don’t forget, I get even bitch!”

    James Storm slugs Alberto El Patron right in the jaw! El Patron falls down and quickly James Storm mounts and lays into El Patron again and again! Raining down right hand on the Mexican aristocrat! The crowd goes nuts as Armando Alejandro attempts to attack Storm from behind.

    James Storm drives another right hand on El Patron and slowly gets up. He turns his attention towards Armando Alejandro who starts to back up, a look of fear in his eyes. Storm smiles and takes a swig of beer……and SPITS it all over Armando Alejandro. The ten thousand dollar suit gets drenched in Bud Light, and Alejandro falls back through the ropes to the floor.

    James Storm turns around, and the distraction has allowed Alberto El Patron the chance to regain his composure and fight back! The two men slug it out in the ring! The crowd goes nuts as the two men just beat the hell out of each other! Storm though lifts El Patron up and drops him with a spinebuster!

    Alberto El Patron flops backwards in his suit, as James Storm picks up his beer bottle and eyes El Patron menacingly.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Turnabout is fair play, but James Storm is out looking for blood tonight!”

    Like a cat, James Storm lunges forward to crack the bottle over the skull of Alberto El Patron…….





    But Armando Alejandro pulls him to the floor to safety at the last second!


    James Storm smacks the top rope with the bottle in frustration as he looks down at El Patron and Alejandro. The crowd chants “Cowboy” as James Storm paces around in the ring staring at the two men on the floor with hatred in his eyes as they back their way around the ring.

    Commercials

    We return from commercials with a wide angle shot of Center Stage. The camera then pans down to the broadcast position where Mauro Ranallo, Arn Anderson, and Chael Sonnen show highlights of the physical altercation between James Storm and Alberto El Patron from moments ago.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Fans, we are going to send things to the back right now where James Storm has demanded a camera.”

    We cut backstage to a hallway where James Storm is pacing back and forth. He picks up a chair and throws it against the wall with a loud clang.

    James Storm – “My blood is boiling right now, and I’m fired up! Alberto, son you must have thought I forgot. You must have thought I didn’t remember getting smashed over the head with a beer bottle. You must have forgotten the glass tearing through my skin. You must have forgotten about the blood running down my busted face! But guess what brotha, I didn’t! When you got a problem with someone back home you take it outside, and that’s what I intend to do with you! But, this ain’t going to be no wrestling match……no, Alberto I want your ass in a street fight next week. No rules, just a straight up fight to see who the toughest som bitch is! You want to wage a path of destruction………well I’ll be waiting for you, and I’m not taking no for an answer…………Sorry ‘Bout Your Damn Luck!”

    The camera cuts back to the ring where we get set for our main event!

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is your main event of the evening, and is set for one fall with a thirty minute time limit for the WSW World Tag Team Championships!”

    The music of the Motor City Machine Guns hits and the crowd jumps to their feet as Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin strut out to the stage and pose before heading down to the ring. The Guns vault over the ropes and pose in opposite corners of the ring.

    Mauro Ranallo – “One of the most decorated tag teams to ever step foot in the squared circle, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin answered the open challenge from The Young Bucks last week. Just like their hometown of Detroit, the Motor City Machine Guns don’t back down, and they are just three seconds away from expanding their trophy case.”

    The music of the Young Bucks hits and a wave of cheers break out as the cocky, confident, and uber talented Matt and Nick Jackson appear wearing the World Tag Team Titles. Strumming their air guitars all the way to ring, Matt and Nick strike their trademark pose in the ring. Shelley and Sabin look on from their corner talking strategy with each other.

    Matt and Nick look over at the Guns and shout some smack talk across the ring. The two take their belts off and tap them together before giving them to the referee. Justin Roberts handles the formal ring introductions.


    Match Three: WSW World Tag Team Championship – The Motor City Machine Guns vs. The Young Bucks (c)

    Alex Shelley and Matt Jackson will start the match, and the two men bounce around each other in the ring as dueling chants break out in Center Stage. “Motor City” chants are quickly countered by “Superkick” chants. Shelley and Matt look at each other, and both men crack a sly smile at the roaring crowd. The two men then lock up. In a blinding flurry of moves, Shelley and Matt Jackson go through a series of submissions, counters, reversals……this quickly transitions into a series of pin attempts, with both men refusing to let their shoulder be on the mat for longer than 1 second. The two men scramble back to their feet and stare across the ring at each other to cheers from the crowd.

    Both men tag in their respective partners and Chris Sabin and Nick Jackson enter the ring with a flurry. The two men bounce off the ropes and move at an incredible pace, but Sabin begins to get the advantage and runs Nick Jackson over with several clotheslines and caps it off with a dropkick to the face! Sabin tags Shelley back in and the MCMG hit a beautiful double team—drop toe hold into a DDT! Shelley covers!

Shelley is in trouble, and the Young Bucks execute a double team of their own, with Nick Jackson climbing to the shoulders of Matt and snapping off a beautiful moonsault! The Young Bucks pose triumphantly!

    Shelley rolls around in pain on the canvas, looking at the distance between himself and his corner. Nick Jackson goes back to work……………but Shelley is able to counter a wheelbarrow with a bulldog! This is the opening for Shelley to leap/lunge over to his corner for the tag! Chris Sabin enters and runs over and through Nick Jackson! Matt Jackson blind tags himself in as Sabin throws Nick into the ropes and takes him out with a wicked dropkick! Sabin covers Nick, but Matt is the legal man and he has climbed to the top!

    Mauro Ranallo – “They issued an open challenge with their trademark cocky swagger, what they got was a war. But make no mistake about it, The Young Bucks are the tag team standard bearers in WSW!”

    Commercials

    Back from commercials the camera pans to the announce position.


    Mauro Ranallo – “What a night it has been here on Ignition. Spread the word folks, the best professional wrestling in the world can be found every Tuesday night here on Spike. Huge news coming from backstage. We saw the altercation earlier between James Storm and Alberto El Patron, and the subsequent challenge from Storm. Well it’s official, El Patron has accepted and next week here on Ignition we will have a Street Fight between James Storm and Alberto El Patron!”

    Chael Sonnen – “Oh boy cue up that TV14 rating, because that is going to be a back alley fight. Don’t forget Mauro, we saw AJ Styles get pushed to the limit tonight by Fenix….he will get tested again next week as he will defend that World Television Championship!”

    Mauro Ranallo – “Our World Champion Claudio Castagnoli has requested to close tonight’s program. For my broadcast partners Arn Anderson and Chael Sonnen, this is Mauro Ranallo saying goodnight from Atlanta.”

    The camera fades backstage where Claudio Castagnoli stands in a grey suit, with the World Title gleaming on his shoulder.

    Claudio Castagnoli – “WSW Nation, it is with tremendous pride that I stand here as your WSW World Champion. The outpouring of support is something I will never forget. I made a promise two weeks ago, that I would be a fighting champion that will defend this belt with honor. I stand here before you ready to live that promise. Next week here on Ignition, I will defend the World Championship against anyone on the WSW roster that has been waiting for their opportunity and wants a shot at glory. Heed my warning, I’m ready to fight……are you?”

    Claudio Castagnoli walks off camera and the camera focuses on the WSW logo before fading to black, ending this edition of Ignition.

    WSW Ignition
    Center Stage Atlanta
    November 3, 2015


    WSW World Champion: Claudio Castagnoli (10/6/15)
    WSW World Television Champion: AJ Styles (10/20/15)
    WSW World Tag Team Champions: The Young Bucks (9/29/15)

    The WSW signature airs followed by the intro video for Ignition set to the official theme of Ignition “The Outsiders” by Eric Church.

    We then cut to Center Stage Atlanta where pyro EXPLODES on stage, and the crowd roars in cheers. Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson welcome us to the broadcast.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome ladies and gentlemen to World Series Wrestling, and welcome to Ignition. Each week we continue to shatter barriers and bring you the best professional wrestling in the world today, and that continues tonight!”

    Arn Anderson – “You’re right Mauro. We have established precedence over the past eight weeks and Ignition continues to roll tonight with both the World Television Championship and the World Championship defended tonight. “

    Chael Sonnen – “Don’t forget about the brutal battle we will see between Alberto El Patron and James Storm. The two will meet in a street fight….the first of its kind in WSW.”

    The ring bell tolls and Justin Roberts stands in the center of the ring ready to get the night’s action started off.

    Justin Roberts – “The following is your opening contest of the evening and is set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    Matt Sydal bounces out on stage to cheers. Sydal is fired up and the high flyer walks down the elevated run way. Sydal slings himself over the ropes and poses in the corner for the crowd.


    The lights in the arena are then killed engulfing Center Stage in darkness. A bright white light shines down on the stage and a countdown clock begins to tick down on the LED videoboard……………………..

    1…………………………………………………………………………………..



    Mike Bennett!


    Mike Bennett walks out into the white light. Bennett wears a black ring robe lined in tiger stripes. Maria looks stunning with a matching black hoodie jacket, cut to expose her perfectly toned stomach and black booty shorts. The power couple stride to the ring together to a mixed reaction.


    Match One : Matt Sydal vs. Mike Bennett (w/ Maria)

    Maria parades around the outside of the ring, knowing exactly how stunningly gorgeous she is. Inside the ring, Matt Sydal bounces to the middle of the ring and offers a respectful fist bump to Mike Bennett. Bennett stares down at the fist for a few seconds and hesitantly offers his fist…….


    But he grabs Sydal’s wrist and sends the high flyer down with a wicked lariat! Boos begin to flood Center Stage, as Mike Bennett takes the cheap shot and begins to stomp down on Sydal. Matt Sydal flops around on the canvas like a dead fish, as Bennett furiously stomps a mudhole. Sydal flops his way back into a corner where Bennett drives his boot into his throat, pulling on the ropes for extra leverage. Bennett uses the entire 5 Count before breaking. Bennett then parades through the ring, as Maria applauds from the floor, taunting the ringside fans.

    Sydal uses the ropes to regain his vertical base, clutching his throat and gasping for air. The brief lapse is short lived, as Bennett charges in and splashes Sydal with a high knee. Sydal stumbles out of the corner, and Bennett picks him up and whips him down to the canvas again with a sick spinebuster! Mike Bennett then very non-chalantly covers Sydal—not bothering to hook the leg….

    1….




    2….


    Kick Out!

    Sydal stays alive and kicks out! Bennett does not show any signs of worry, as he smiles smugly and slaps on a tight sleeper hold! Bennett squeezes down tight, as Sydal’s eyes begin to bulge. Sydal sticks his hand in the air in an attempt to rally the fans behind him. The rally claps begins, but Bennett keeps the hold locked in tight.

    Sydal works his way to a knee…….



    Then to his feet………



    Sydal begins to elbow the midsection of Bennett. Sydal keeps throwing elbows until he breaks the hold! Bennett slings Sydal into the ropes. Sydal ducks another clothesline attempt, and sends Bennett down with a dropkick! Bennett scrambles to his feet, but Sydal gets after it with a step up enziguri! Mike Bennett is rocked, and Sydal sends him through the ropes to the floor with another dropkick!

    Mike Bennett sprawls out to the floor, and Maria quickly comes to his aid. Sydal goes to a knee in the ring, still clutching his throat. The crowd rallies behind Sydal, and he rises to his feet. Sydal bounces off the ropes and in a full sprint he charges and dives through the ropes for a suicide dive!









    But Bennett destroys him in midair with a devastating uppercut!


    Sydal’s body hangs limp on the middle rope. Mike Bennett climbs to the ring apron, and drives Sydal’s skull down to the apron with a rope hung DDT!

    Sydal’s body lays lifeless on the apron, as Mike Bennett takes his time walking up the steps and getting back into the ring. Maria rolls Matt Sydal in from the apron. With a grin on his face, Bennett scoops Matt Sydal up……..



    And drops him with the Piledriver!

    1…..



    2……




    3……

    Winner: Mike Bennett

    Maria hops with joy on the outside, and she quickly hops in the ring and celebrates with her man with a very upfront make up session. Bennett then grabs a microphone……and looks down at the body of Matt Sydal.

    Mike Bennett picks up a limp arm of Sydal’s and plants a fist bump on it mockingly.


    Mike Bennett – You know this respect thing is bullshit right?! ……………….

    (laughs) You can boo all you want, but I’m not here to screw around and pretend I respect people. Let me make something clear, I’m not here for the ‘passion and glory’ of the wrestling business……I’m here to get my rings, my money, my crown, and sit on my throne. Consider tonight notice WSW………………..your king and queen are here and we are going scorched earth on this bitch till we stand on top!”

    The lights go down at Center Stage and a spotlight hits the ring, illuminating Mike Bennett, who holds the microphone high in the air, and Maria who wraps her arms around Bennett’s waist and poses seductively.

    Commercials

    We return from commercials backstage where Todd Keneley is standing with Austin Aries.


    Todd Keneley – “Welcome back to Ignition. My guest at this time is Austin Aries. Austin, last week after your match you stated that a ‘storm was coming.’ What do you mean by that?”

    Austin Aries – “…..That’s called a cryptic comment Todd….have you ever read a book? You know I’m not usually one to divulge all my secrets, I prefer to be an international man of mystery, but I’ll let you in just a bit. It’s obvious that my talents cannot be denied, yet I have not received the opportunities I deserve in WSW. Why is that Todd? Why have I been always overlooked in favor of AJ Styles, Alberto El Patron, Claudio Castagnoli?…..And the list goes on and on. (chuckles) Well, that’s not going to happen anymore.”

    Todd Keneley – “You still haven’t answered my question, what does all that mean?”

    Austin Aries – “Just wait and see…..there’s always a plan.”

    Austin Aries walks off camera, as Todd Keneley is left standing looking confused. The camera then cuts to the crowd and pans to the announce position where Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson sit.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Obviously some intriguing comments there from Austin Aries. Welcome back to Ignition, Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson here with you on Spike. WSW roars into the month of November, and we still have so much in store for you tonight.”

    Arn Anderson – “That’s right Mauro, AJ Styles will defend his World Television Championship tonight, and in our main event….World Champion Claudio Castagnoli is offering the opportunity of a lifetime with an open challenge to anyone in the locker room that wants to step up.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Do not forget, that James Storm is out for blood and squares off with Alberto El Patron in a street fight. It’s obvious that Storm is full of piss and vinegar and loves a good fight, but he just challenged the best prize fighter in the world to a straight up brawl. I think Mr. Storm has bitten off more than he can chew.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “The blood was put into the water between these two on September 22 when they first met in a semi-final match in the World Title Tournament…..”

    We segway into a video package recapping the semi-final match between Alberto El Patron and James Storm. The matched ended with an El Patron victory, and then he smashed Storm in the head with a beer bottle, knocking Storm out and cutting his head open. Snippets from El Patron’s promo last week narrate the video package, as we see Storm’s retaliation last week. The video ends with Storm’s challenge and shots of his bleeding face.

    The video package fades out and we fade in to an interview with Todd Keneley from “earlier today.” Keneley is in the parking lot of Center Stage and interviews Alberto El Patron as he enters the building.


    Todd Keneley – “Alberto, tonight you are facing James Storm in a street fight. This is not a match type that you have a ton of experience in. What are your thoughts and how have you prepared?”

    Alberto El Patron – “It doesn’t matter what stipulation they present in front of me, at the end of the day, I am the greatest prize fighter in the world, and if James Storm wants to play bloodsport….then that’s what we will do. I made my intentions very clear last week, and James Storm is just a speedbump on my road to destiny.”

    We cut back to Center Stage, and the music of Alberto El Patron hits. El Patron walks out accompanied by Armando Alejandro. El Patron is dressed in his typical wrestling boots and tights. Alberto El Patron gets in the ring and taunts the fans a bit as he is lynched with boos and jeers.

    “The Only Way I Know” by Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Eric Church blares through Center Stage, and James Storm walks out to a tremendous ovation. Storm is shirtless and clad in jeans and cowboys boots.


    Match Two: Street Fight – Alberto El Patron (w/ Armando Alejandro) vs. “The Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm

    Storm makes a beeline down the elevated runway to the ring. Storm hops in the ring and stands toe to toe with Alberto El Patron. Storm yells “I’m just a speed bump?!” Alberto El Patron responds by spitting in his the face! James Storm responds by tackling him to the ground and pounding on El Patron with right hands! The crowd cheers wildly as Storm pounds on the face of El Patron who flops and squirms on the canvas in attempt to escape the attack. El Patron finally frees himself and scrambles to his feet where he is met with LOUD chop to the chest, followed by another, and another! Storm is like a man possessed, and he takes both men over the top to the floor with a Cactus Clothesline!

    On the floor, Storm grabs a steel chair from the timekeeper’s table and barks at Armando Alejandro. Storm raises the chair high and SMASHES it over the back of Alberto El Patron who cries out in pain! Storm raises the chair again and bashes it over El Patron’s back again! Armando Alejandro continues to mouth off to James Storm, but quickly backs away when Storm approaches him. Storm turns his attention back to El Patron, and he begins to rip up the protective black floor mats, exposing the bare concrete! Storm grabs El Patron, points at Alejandro, and rips off a snap suplex onto the concrete!

    El Patron flops around in pain, as his back just splatters against the concrete. Storm picks up the steel chair and heaves it at Armando Alejandro! Alejandro scurries out the way and the chair clangs loudly against the steel ring post! Storm picks El Patron up and throws him back into the ring. He covers!

    2….







    Kick Out! El Patron stays alive! He clutches his back as he rolls around in pain on the canvas. Storm heads outside and goes under the ring and pulls out a trash can! Storm tosses the trash can over the ropes and gets back into the ring. Storm stalks his prey and lifts the trash can high overhead……..




    But El Patron punches him in the groin with a low blow! Storm drops the trash can and drops to the canvas in pain, clutching his nether region. El Patron seizes the opportunity and superkicks the trash can into the face of James Storm! The crowd “Ooohs” as the trash can dents around the skull of Storm! El Patron gets in the face of the fallen Storm and screams “You wanted a bloodsport, you’ve got one!” El Patron then begins driving vicious right hands into the face of Storm! The blows fall like rain, until El Patron climbs to his feet and roars in triumph! Storm clutches his face and rolls out to the floor, and flops to the mats in pain. Armando Alejandro comes over to taunt him!

    Alberto leaves the ring and walks down the ring steps. He picks Storm up……and whips him so violently that Storm goes head over heels with his momentum and he takes out an entire section of the steel guard rail!

    “Holy Shit” chants break out as James Storm lays in the midst of twisted steel guard rails, chairs, and fans. El Patron climbs to the apron and poses on the second rope screaming, “Yo soy un conquistador!”

    El Patron hops down to the floor and enters the madness that is the collapsed section of guard rail. Amazingly, James Storm has begun crawling through the first few rows of seats in an attempt to regain his senses. El Patron follows him, stomping, kicking, and spitting at him as he pushes past fans. El Patron grabs Storm and positions him for a powerbomb on the concrete!







    Storm backdrops El Patron into the 5th row!




    In a last ditch effort, Storm sends El Patron through the air! El Patron crashes into an entire row of chairs, and people rush all around the carnage. “Holy Shit” and “ECW” chants are heard. Both men are battered and bruised, and Storm grabs El Patron by the hair and guides him from the crowd, back to the ringside area. Storm whips El Patron into the steel guard rail! Storm goes under the ring again and pulls out another trash can! Storm picks El Patron up and slams down onto the trash can! The trash can gets crushed from the force and El Patron cries out in pain. Storm gets a devilish look on his face and he climbs to the top!

    James Storm balances himself and stands on the top turnbuckle! Storm then flies off the top looking for a flying elbow to the floor!





    Alberto El Patron moves!



    James Storm flies down to the floor and connects solidly with the trash can and the floor mats!


    It sounds like a high speed car crash as Storm’s body connects with the trash can!


    El Paton picks Storm up by the waist of his jeans and throws his lifeless body in the steel ring steps with a sickening thud! Alberto rolls Storm back into the ring and covers!


    1…..





    2……










    Kick Out!



    The crowd jumps in amazement, as James Storm kicks out at 2.99999! Alberto El Patron looks on with a shocked look in his face. Instead of protesting, El Patron heads to the floor and slides in the chair from earlier. El Patron also goes under the ring for the first time and pulls out a table! El Patron slides the table in the ring too! El Patron starts to get back in the ring, but stops and goes back under the ring and pulls out a broom!

    Alberto El Patron gets back in the ring, with the broom in hand. He raises the broom overhead to strike, but Storm punches El Patron with a low blow of his own! Storm grabs the broom, swings, and breaks the broom handle over the back of Alberto El Patron! A wicked swing splinters the wooden handle into 1245 pieces! Storm looks at the pieces of broom handle littered around the ring, before setting the table up! James Storm grabs Alberto El Patron and carries him to the corner. Alberto gouges the eyes of Storm to turn the tides! El Patron grabs a splintered piece of the broom handle and chokes Storm with it! El Patron sits on the top turnbuckle and yanks Storm to the middle rope! El Patron is attempting to superbomb James Storm through the table!


    Storm fights back to avoid sure disaster with headbutts. Storm then begins to throw punches onto the face of El Patron, who is teetering on the top! Storm lands one last well placed punch, and knocks El Patron off the top!




    But Alberto El Patron catches the left arm on the way down and locks in a rope hung Arm Bar! Storm yells out in pain, as El Patron hangs inverted….torqueing on the arm over the ropes!


    The referee is right on the spot and continues to ask James Storm if he wants to quit. Storm yells in pain and grits his teeth! Storm in desperation reaches down and grabs the steel chair off the canvas! With his last bit of strength, Storm swings the chair with one arm over the ropes and connects with Alberto El Patron, causing him to break the submission! El Patron falls to the floor! Storm falls to the canvas, his left arm immobilized. The crowd begins to chant “This Is Awesome!”

    Armando Alejandro rushes to the side of Alberto El Patron and coaxes him to his feet. El Patron slowly gets back into the ring. James Storm retreats to a corner and leans against the turnbuckles, his left arm clutched to his midsection, his right hand still wielding the chair. Storm looks at El Patron, and beckons him to bring it on with the chair! El Patron charges, and Storm swings the chair…..

    El Paton ducks but gets trapped in the corner where Storm lands several boots and one armed chair shots! Storm backs up and screams like a savage before charging to the corner again! Alberto El Patron boots him directly into the left arm! Storm falls like a bag of rocks to the canvas. El Patron stomps on the injured arm over and over again! He then picks the steel chair up and smashes it over the injured arm!

    Storm’s flopping has subsided into a seizure of pain, and Alberto El Patron stands above Storm. Alberto scoops the carcass of James Storm up…………..and goes to powerbombs him through the table, but his back gives out! The pain that has been inflicted on El Patron’s back is too much to lift Storm. Alberto swears as he contemplates his next move.

    El Patron rolls Storm onto the table, and covers him with the steel chair. Alberto then climbs to the top! Alberto grabs his lower back as he balances himself, and then he leaps!




    DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!






    El Patron nails the chair and lands hard, driving James Storm through the table!




    Splinters and woodchips fly as James Storm is lifeless. El Patron covers him!

EMTs rush the ring to check to check on the status of James Storm. Alberto El Patron makes a throat slash gesture in the ring as he leans against the ropes, battered, bruised, tested, but victorious.


    Commercials

    We return from commercials with Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson showing highlights of the brutal street fight. We then see footage from the commercial break, of James Storm refusing EMT help back up the stage, but collapsing several times from the pain.


    The music of “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles hits and the World Television Champion makes his way out through a shower of pyro sparks that rain down from above.

    With the World Television Championship gleaming around his waist, AJ gets into the ring and poses for the crowd, slapping the belt to show off his hardware. Styles gets a microphone.


    AJ Styles – “It’s that time of night! It’s time for the World Television Title Open Challenge. I’m here ready to defend my title, anyone that wants to take their shot…….come on!

    Styles drops the microphone and takes his ring jacket off. He bounces off the ropes a bit to loosen up………all eyes are on the stage to see who will accept the challenge…..

    Match Three: World Television Championship – Low Ki vs. “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles (c)

    The referee holds the white strapped belt high and the bell rings, as Styles and Low Ki circle around each other in the ring. The two then lock up in the center of the ring and showcase their grappling skills, as they fly around each other with different grabs and holds. Neither man is able to gain a solid advantage. They go through another series of counters and reversals. This sequence ends in a stalemate and the respectful applause is cut short as Low Ki drives an open palmed slap into Styles’ chest! Styles follows with a knife edge chop! The two then chop and slap each other’s chests red! Hand prints are visible on their chests, and Low Ki begins snapping off leg kicks with deadly precision!

    Commercials

    Back from commercials we open with Todd Keneley backstage with the WSW World Champion, Claudio Castagnoli.


    Todd Keneley – “Welcome back to Ignition, my guest at this time is the World Series Wrestling World Champion, Claudio Castagnoli. Claudio, last week you issued an open challenge to anyone on the roster for a World Title shot. What’s your mindset behind this challenge?”

    Claudio Castagnoli – “When I won this title I made a promise to be a fighting champion. I have wrestled all over the world, and I believe a true Worlds Champion is one who isn’t afraid to put their belt on the line and showcase their skills. There is no doubt in my mind Todd that I am the single greatest professional wrestler in the world today. If someone thinks differently, I’ll be waiting for them down in the ring. Waiting with an opportunity and waiting with the World Title.”

    Claudio Castagnoli walks off and we fade back to Center Stage where the 1812 Overture hits, and the crowd jumps to their feet to cheer the arrival of Claudio Castagnoli!

    Castagnoli walks out with the WSW World Championship around his waist. Castagnoli slaps the gold belt and beats his chest before raising a fist in the air. The atmosphere is electric as Castagnoli reaches the ring and poses in the corner! Castagnoli unstraps the belt and hands it to the referee. He bounces back and forth in the corner, pulling on the ropes to loosen up. The cheers quickly die down to a buzz as the crowd awaits the challenger!

    The tough Englishman walks out looking jacked! Aldis flexes on the stage and strides down the elevated runway. Claudio Castagnoli nods at the challenge. Aldis flexes at the foot of the runway and enters the ring jawing at Castagnoli. Justin Roberts performs the formal ring introductions, and the referee hold the World Title high.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Nick Aldis is looking to seize immortality tonight! Aldis and Castagnoli had issues back in the World Title Tournament. Castagnoli defeated Aldis in the first round, and I don’t think Nick Aldis has ever been able to move on from that defeat.”

    Match Four: WSW World Championship – Nick Aldis vs. Claudio Castagnoli (c)

    The bell rings and the cheers swell, with “Claudio” chants echoing off the walls. Nick Aldis continues to jaw and flex as he steps to the center of the ring. Claudio Castagnoli doesn’t back down, and he steps right up and jaws back! Aldis slaps Castagnoli across the face hard! Castagnoli doesn’t flinch and rears back and fires a stiff right hook to the jaw! Aldis gets rocked, and Castagnoli fires off a series of rapid fire forearms! Aldis backs into a corner, and that provides no escape as Castagnoli crashes in with an Avalanche clothesline! Castagnoli is fired up!

    Aldis bails quickly! He rolls to the outside for a breather while Claudio Castagnoli paces around the ring to cheers. Aldis gets down to a knee on the outside, breathing deeply. Claudio Castagnoli hops outside the ring and goes after Aldis; however, this plays into Aldis’ hands as he grabs Claudio’s trunks and slings Castagnoli into the steel ring post!

    WSW Ignition
    November 10, 2015
    Center Stage Atlanta

    WSW World Champion: Claudio Castagnoli (10/6/15)
    WSW World Television Champion: AJ Styles (10/20/15)
    WSW World Tag Team Champions: The Young Bucks (9/29/15)

    Highlights from last week kick off this week’s episode of Ignition. The package is narrated by Mike Bennett’s promo from last week. We see a recap of last week’s main event with Claudio Castagnoli defending the World Title against Nick Aldis. After submitting Aldis, Castagnoli was attacked from behind by Mike Bennett and laid out with a belt shot and a Piledriver. The image of Bennett making out with Maria, standing over Castagnoli’s body, is met with the narration:

    “I’m here to get my rings, my money, my crown, and sit on my throne………”

    The video recap fades into the Ignition intro video set to “The Outsiders” by Eric Church.

    We then cut inside Center Stage Atlanta, where the camera pans around the crowd, as Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson welcome us to the broadcast.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome ladies and gentleman to the most dynamic combat sports program on television today….welcome to WSW Ignition!”

    The lights shut off in Center Stage to the shrieks of the crowd, the countdown begins on the LED videoboard……..

    3…………………………

    2…………………………………………………………………….




    1…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..



    Mike Bennett!



    To a blanket of boos, Mike Bennett and Maria stride out onto the stage. Bennett is dressed to wrestle, wearing his hooded black ring jacket with tiger stripe trim. Maria walks right by his side clad in matching attire.

    Bennett walks with a slimy grin and gets into the ring, where he grabs a microphone; however, Maria takes it out of Bennett’s hand.


    Maria – “You can boo and scream all you want, but it’s not going to change anything. There’s a reason that we are standing in this ring and all of you are sitting out there. We are royalty and all of you are just trash who come here to escape the pathetic reality that are your lives. Now shut up, and listen to my man………..the sexiest man on the planet……and your future king………………………Mike Bennett.”

    Maria hands the microphone to Bennett, and her comments do nothing to endear herself to the fans of Center Stage.

    Mike Bennett – “Thank you baby…..damn you look good tonight. (listens to the boos) You can keep booing all you want, but it doesn’t change the fact that I changed the game last week. I don’t wait around for my opportunity…..I freaking take it! I’m not here to make friends, I’m not here to honor this business, I’m here for power AND I’m here to make money. I’m the MVP of WSW and every single one of you knows that it is true. In this sport, the only way to make money is to win championships………so Claudio Castagnoli, you’re on borrowed time pal…..because the way I see it, you’re just a placeholder that’s keeping my belt nice and polished. I’m an equal opportunity badass, so I’ve prepared an exhibition for you tonight……Claudio you may want to take notes. (waves hand toward the stage) Bring out my opponent.”

    The music of PJ Black hits and the South African walks out on the stage with a pissed off look on his face.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Well that’s PJ Black and Mike Bennett can talk all he wants, but PJ Black is a talented international wrestler and he is coming out here not to participate in an “exhibition,” but to win a wrestling match.”

    PJ Black walks down the elevated runway and gets in the ring. Maria takes Mike Bennett’s ring jacket off and rubs her hands down his chest, as he prepares for a match.

    Match One: Mike Bennett (w/ Maria) vs. PJ Black

    The two men circle around each other before Bennett shoots in for a lock up, but PJ Black rolls under the lock up attempt. Black uses his speed to avoid early offense from Bennett, and he begins to pop off a series of kicks that stuns Bennett. Black nails a dropkick that topples Bennett. Mike Bennett’s swagger quickly turns to anger and he charges in for a clothesline, but Black avoids it and sends Bennett down again with a hurricanrana! Mike Bennett scrambles under the ropes and heads outside to regroup.

    Black is fired up in the ring and pumps up the crowd, as Mike Bennett readjusts his trunks and kicks the steps in frustration before climbing back inside. Black shoots in looking for a kick, but Bennett catches it….he then duck the enziguri attempt and drops Black down with a wheelbarrow slam. Like a rapid dog Mike Bennet is all over PJ Black and mauls him with punches, stomps, and chokes! The referee yanks Bennett off Black and admonishes him, but Bennett shoves him out of the way! The referee shoves him back! This momentarily distraction allows PJ Black to strike with a series of chops. Black moves quickly but Mike drops him down to the canvas again with a slingshot back suplex. Bennett scoops Black up off the canvas and sends him crashing into the corner with a release German Suplex!

    PJ Black crashes into the corner with a thud, his lungs being exhausted of breath from the move. Mike Bennett flashes his slimy grin again and he charges across the ring and CRUSHES PJ Black with a full impact running boot. He follows that up by quickly scooping PJ Black up and driving him down with a spinning spinebuster! PJ Black lays on the mat like he was hit by a MAC truck.

    Mike Bennett parades around the ring, embracing the boos and jeers. He scoops Black up off the canvas….he screams “This one is for you Claudio!” He then drops Black with the Piledriver!

    1812 Overture hits!





    Mike Bennett stomps dead in his tracks and turns towards the stage.





    CLAUDIO CASTAGNOLI COMES OUT!


    The World Champion comes out on stage and makes his way down the elevated runway looking PISSED! Mike Bennett taunts Castagnoli from the ring. Claudio Castagnoli stops at the foot of the runway………………..




    AND CHARGES THE RING!


    Claudio tackles Mike Bennett to the canvas and the two begin to brawl. A nasty, back alley style brawl breaks out between the two men! Fists, kicks, and headbutts fly! Maria screams as she tries to separate the two to no avail!


    Referees and members of Center Stage security flood down to the ring to separate the two men!


    It takes a small army to pull the men apart! Like a man possessed, Claudio Castagnoli breaks free! Castagnoli charges across the ring and leaps over the security members to land a few more shots on Mike Bennett! The two men tumble through the ropes to the floor! Bodies fly everywhere, as the scramble to separate the two men moves to the floor!

    Wrestlers from the back have to come down to assist with the melee, and finally enough bodies arrive to separate the two! Mike Bennett yells “That’s my belt! I’m coming for it!”


    Mauro Ranallo – “A mob scene has broken out here at Center Stage. I have never seen Claudio Castagnoli like this. He’s a raging bull. Mike Bennett has really gotten to him!”

    The crowd whips into a frenzy and chants “Let them fight!” As wrestlers, referees, and security members fight to restrain the World Champion and escort him up the runway, while another crew surround Mike Bennett at ringside. The two men continue to yell at each other from across Center Stage!

    Commercials

    We return from commercials where Todd Keneley is standing backstage.


    Todd Keneley – “Welcome back to Ignition, my name is Todd Keneley and we just saw the chaos that occurred between Mike Bennett and World Champion Claudio Castagnoli. I’m going to try and get a word with Claudio….”

    Todd Keneley approaches Claudio Castagnoli who is still being escorted by security as he walks through the backstage area.

    Todd Keneley – “Claudio, Claudio……may I just get a quick word with you?”

    Castagnoli pushes his way over to Todd Keneley and confirms to the security that he fine and cooled down.

    Todd Keneley – “Claudio, you just created a melee. What are you thinking right now?”

    Claudio Castagnoli – “I’m thinking that Mike Bennett is a piece of trash! Mike Bennett represents everything that is wrong with professional wrestling…he represents greed and slime of this business. He wants to fight……I’m ready to fight!”

    Todd Keneley – “Are you challenging Mike Bennett to a match?!”

    Claudio Castagnoli – “Every day I wake up and I fight, I fight for this sport, I fight for my family, and I fight for myself! The World Championship doesn’t represent money and power……it represents the blood, sweat, injuries, and tears that go into becoming the greatest wrestler in the world. I’ve paid the price Mike Bennet…I’ve been through wars in that ring. I’m going to show you what that’s like next week. No cheap shots, no brawls…..next week I want you to step between those ropes and face me like a man….one on one. You want to take my belt?..................I’m giving you your shot………come fight me!”

    A fired up Claudio Castagnoli paces off. The camera then fades back to Center Stage to the announce position on stage where the broadcast team sits.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Fans, welcome back to Ignition. I am honored to say that I have gotten to know Claudio Castagnoli very well over the two and half months, but gentlemen I have never seen him like this.”

    Arn Anderson – “He’s a bull in a china shop right now. He’s a proud champion and he loves this sport. It’s very obvious that Mike Bennett and his actions have stuck in his craw.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Guys, let’s not ignore the fact that Claudio Castagnoli is operating on pure emotion right now and he just challenged Mike Bennett to a match for the World Title next week! Despite the circumstance, a champion always has to keep a cool head, and Claudio Castagnoli may have just made a grave mistake because Mike Bennett is hell bent on becoming World Champion, and he just played Claudio Castagnoli into giving him what he wants.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “We will wait and see what comes about from this challenge as we progress through the evening. It’s been a helluva night so far, but we have so much in store. We will crown new Number One contenders for The Young Bucks’ World Tag Team Titles, in a triangle match: Team Dragon Gate vs. The Motor City Machine Guns vs. The Carolina Outlaws. And in our main event, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles will defend the World Television Championship in his open challenge!”

    The lights dim in Center Stage and pyro EXPLODES on the stage……………………………


    Rey Mysterio Jr. walks out without his sling…………ready to wrestle!


    Mauro Ranallo – “Well the hits just keep coming, as Rey Mysterio Jr. is here tonight!”

    Arn Anderson – “Take a look at his arm. No sling tonight!”

    The crowd cheers on Rey Mysterio Jr. as the beloved luchador makes a lap around the ring, slapping hands with all the ringside fans. Mysterio hops into the ring and poses in the corner to cheers! Rey Mysterio Jr. grabs a microphone.

    Rey stands in the ring for a moment and waits out the cheers.


    Rey Mysterio Jr. – “From the bottom of my heart…..THANK YOU! You have no clue how good this feels!”

    The cheers grow louder.

    Rey Mysterio Jr. – “Six weeks ago I stood in this very ring and delivered the news that my arm had been injured and I would be on the shelf for a while. Well truth be told, I wasn’t sure if I would ever get to lace up my boots and come out here and do what I love for you people ever again. It’s no secret that I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I’m not a young luchador anymore. My body doesn’t heal the way it used too……but, through the help of a great medical team, a great friend in Fenix, and the big man upstairs…..I have been cleared to wrestle again!”

    The cheers pick back up again.

    Rey Mysterio Jr. – “I have always been one to let my talking be done in the ring, but tonight I need to speak my peace……and Alberto El Patron, I’m talking to you ese! You call yourself a prize fighter, but you are nothing more than a punk with money. You tried to take everything from me, but you failed! I’m still standing……I’m right here……………..and I want you!”

    The cheers of the crowd pick up again at the thought of the challenge………………………








    The music of Shelton Benjamin hits!




    The buzz of the crowd turns to boos, as Shelton Benjamin walks out on stage with a microphone.


    Shelton Benjamin – “Oh, I’m sorry……I’m not what you expected?!”

    Shelton Benjamin begins to walk down the elevated runway to the ring as he talks.

    Shelton Benjamin – “Rey, I think it’s great that you are back, I really do. But, you can’t just stroll back in here and start calling people out. I’ve been here busting my ass, so you’re going to shut your damn mouth and let me talk………because I’m calling out YOU!”

    Shelton Benjamin gets in the ring and starts circling around Mysterio Jr.

    Shelton Benjamin – “Don’t think that I’ve forgotten about you sending your errand boy to face me when you were a gimp!”

    Rey Mysterio Jr. – “Shelton, if I remember correctly, he beat you! But guess what, he ain’t here, and I ain’t injured anymore…….so if you have a problem with me. Then let’s settle this right now!”

    Shelton Benjamin – “Man, get me a referee, because I want this to be official when I kick your ass!”

    Shelton Benjamin pushes Rey Mysterio Jr. who pushes him right back! The two mouth off to one another before a referee runs down from the back! We are going to have a match!

    Match Two: Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Shelton Benjamin

    The bell rings and the two men circle around each other, crouched down low. Shelton Benjamin shoots in and takes Mysterio’s back lifting him up and slamming him down to the canvas. Benjamin then works Mysterio over with his superior mat wrestling skills. The former collegiate wrestling star grinds down on the masked luchador with a variety of submissions.

    Rey Mysterio Jr. begins to fight back with elbows and knees to loosen up the grip of Benjamin. Mysterio works his way back to his feet and finally breaks free! Mysterio bounces off the ropes, slides through the legs of Benjamin, and begins to fire off a series of chops and body kicks! Mysterio lands a flurry attack that drives Benjamin back against the ropes. Rey bounces off the opposite set of ropes and charges, but Benjamin sends Mysterio high in the air and over the ropes………………….but Rey lands on the apron. He flies back in the ring with a springboard missile dropkick!

    Shelton Benjamin tumbles back into a seated position in the corner……………..Rey charges……………BRONCO BUSTER!

    The crowd goes nuts as Rey Mysterio goes with a throwback move that causes “WCW” chants! Mysterio is fired up! Mysterio heads back over and peppers Benjamin with more chops! He sends Shelton across the ring to opposite corner…..he charges, but Shelton moves and hits a backslide….

    Commercials

    We return from commercials and see highlights of the World Tag Team Title match from two weeks ago between The Young Bucks and The Motor City Machine Guns that saw The Young Bucks retain their titles. Mauro Ranallo, Arn Anderson, and Chael Sonnen talk about the desire The Motor City Machine Guns have to get another shot at the titles, but they will have to earn it in a Number Once Contenders Triangle Tag Match!


    Match Three: Number One Contenders Triangle Tag Match – The Motor City Machine Guns vs. Team Dragon Gate vs. The Carolina Outlaws

    The Motor City Machine Guns come out to cheers, and they look determined for another shot at the World Tag Team Championships.

The two men circle each other, pawing at each other before engaging in a series of counters, reversals, arm drags, and hip tosses that ends in a stalemate. This draws respectful applause from the Center Stage crowd. The two men nod approvingly at each other and engage in another fast paced sequence of back and forth that ends in yet another stalemate. Another round of respectful applause is cut short by The Carolina Outlaws attacking both men from behind!

    Trevor Lee and Andrew Everett send both men down with dropkicks. Chris Sabin and Masato Yoshino enter the ring, but Everett and Lee send them down as well with stereo enziguris! The Carolina Outlaws pose in the ring and jaw with the crowd, as the referee admonishes them for entering the ring. Everett and Lee spend too much time posing…….

    Chris Sabin clotheslines Andrew Everett over the top rope to the floor, and Genki Horiguchi dropkicks Trevor Lee through the ropes to the floor. Team Dragon Gate and The Motor City Machine Guns rise to their feet in the ring and nod at each other………….and then they go at it with a lightning quick pace!

    Commercials

    We return from commercial with a video package…………………………


    The camera makes its way down a dark hall. A hulking figure stands with his back turned. The camera inches its way down the hall as a female voice narrates……


    Woman’s Voice – “Men fear what they do not know…………………………………...this is why they are weak………………………………………………………………all men will break……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… ………………………………………………………that’s why you must embrace the beast.”

    The camera reaches the hulking figure, who turns around…..a brief glimpse of a mask is seen and a loud gorilla roar is heard!



    The camera fades to black.


    The camera fades back in to Center Stage, where Todd Keneley stands backstage.


    Todd Keneley – “Ladies and gentlemen, my guest at this time is Mike Bennett.”

    Mike Bennett and Maria walk into the shot, Bennett still wearing the slimy grin from earlier.

    Todd Keneley – “Mike, a melee broke out earlier tonight between you and Claudio Castagnoli. You heard his challenge earlier, what is your response?”

    Mike Bennett – “What the hell do you think my response is?! Hell yes, I accept and not only do I accept….I’m going to take his belt. Claudio, you cling to ancient words like ‘respect’ and ‘honor,’ but you’re just a fool. Professional wrestling is about money and power. It’s about scooping up as much fame and fortune as possible. That’s why I’m here, and that’s my fuel. You want me straight up next week…….I’ll be there. So hold your belt tight, because in seven days….my baby is going to strap it around my sexy waist.”

    The camera cuts from backstage back to the stage and the music of AJ Styles hits, and the World Television Champion makes his entrance, dressed to wrestling, walking through his rain of sparks from above, the World Television Championship gleaming around his waist.

    UHAA NATION!



    The crowd ERRUPTS, as Uhaa Nation comes out with pyro blasting!


    Mauro Ranallo – “Uhaa Nation was the last man left in the ring with AJ Styles in the 15 Man Gauntlet. October 20, Nation and Styles went to the brink. Tonight, November 11………..they will go one on one!”

    Match Four: WSW World Television Championship – Uhaa Nation vs. “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles (c)

    There is electricity in the air as Uhaa Nation bounces on his side of ring, with Styles rocking back and forth on his side. The referee holds the World Television Title high as the bell sounds. The two men walk towards the center of the ring and bump fists.

    The two men lock up with a collar and elbow tie up! Nation overpowers Styles and lands a couple swift knees to the midsection. Nation strictly over powers Styles and sends him tumbling to the canvas. Styles quickly picks himself up and reassesses the situation. Nation goes to lock up again, but Styles uses the agility and speed that have made him famous to stay out of arms reach. Styles begins firing off leg kicks! Styles shoots in and chops away at the massive chest of Uhaa Nation, backing him into the corner. Styles charges across the ring and leaps, but Nation catches him! Nation seamlessly spins Styles around and drives him down with a powerslam! Nation yells in pride!

    Uhaa scoops the World Television Champion and slings him into the corner with authority. He charges and runs right into a boot by Styles. Styles showcases his strength and rips up Nation to his shoulder, and drops him with a powerslam of his own! BUT Nation pops right back up and shows no effect of the slam!

    Styles’ eyes grow big and he begins to chop away again. He bounces off the ropes, but runs right into the grasp of Uhaa Nation who slings him overhead with a release belly to belly suplex! Styles grasps at his back and warily climbs to his feet in the corner. The two men shoot towards each other again, but Styles goes for a low dropkick to the knee! He quickly pops up and lands another! Nation goes down to the canvas! Styles begins to work over the left leg of Nation, grinding on the mat with submissions.

    Uhaa feels the pain start to grow and he gets his teeth. Styles attempts to lock in an STF, but Nation powers his way to his feet while AJ Styles maintains the facelock! Nation sends him down with a back suplex; however, Styles keeps his hands clasped on the facelock!

    Again, Uhaa Nation rises to his feet with AJ Styles cluching the face………………………but this time he rams AJ back first into the corner, causing Styles to drop to the mat, breaking the hold. AJ rises slowly, as Uhaa Nation remains on a knee in the center of the ring. As Styles regains his vertical base, Nation charges looks for a corner clothesline, but Styles moves…….and drops Nation with another dropkick to the back of Nation’s left leg! AJ drags Nation back to center of the ring and attempts to work the left leg again, but Nation scrambles and kicks AJ off with authority! Styles does not hesitate and heads to the apron……he springs to the top rope….



    Flying forearm………………………………………….NO






    Uhaa Nation catches him in a vertical suplex position in midair and drops him!





    The crow buzzes at what they just saw…..an incredible feat of strength! Nation rises to his feet, and takes AJ down with jumping clothesline, and another, and another! Uhaa feels the momentum…….he springs off the ropes and attempts a SPEAR…………………………………………………..

    Uhaa accepts and AJ Styles helps him to his feet to a thunderous response! AJ shakes the hand of Nation before exiting the ring.

    WSW Ignition
    November 17, 2015
    Center Stage Atlanta


    WSW World Champion: Claudio Castagnoli (10/6/15)
    WSW World Television Champion: AJ Styles (10/20/15)
    WSW World Tag Team Champions: The Young Bucks (9/29/15)

    Highlights air of last week’s chaotic brawl that occurred between Mike Bennett and Claudio Castagnoli that took the entire WSW Security force, referees, and the locker room to separate the two men. We see Claudio’s subsequent challenge to Bennett, including putting his World Title on the line! Claudio fights for his passion to be the best wrestler in the world and his love of pro wrestling, Mike Bennett fights for fame and fortune.


    The WSW Ignition intro airs set to “The Outsiders” by Eric Church. We then go inside Center Stage Atlanta where pyro EXPLODES on the stage. Mauro Ranallo, Chael Sonnen, and Arn Anderson welcome us on commentary.


    Mauro Ranallo – “Welcome ladies and gentlemen to Ignition, and welcome to Center Stage Atlanta. Tonight, the ultimate prize in World Series Wrestling is on the line…Claudio Castagnoli defends the World Championship tonight against Mike Bennett!”

    The camera pans to the announce position on stage where the announce trio sits.

    Mauro Ranallo – “My name is Mauro Ranallo and as always I am joined by my broadcast partners Arn Anderson and Chael Sonnen. As I just said, tonight in the main event it will be Mike Bennett and Claudio Castagnoli for the World Title. Since his debut, Mike Bennett has been all about flash and all about being the so called “king” of WSW. He vaulted himself onto Claudio Castagnoli’s radar two weeks ago on Ignition with his brutal assault on Castagnoli following the champion’s successful title defense against Nick Aldis.”

    Arn Anderson – “Mike Bennett is a very talented individual and a man who sees himself sitting on top of the world, but he lit the fuse on a powder keg when he attack Claudio Castagnoli….a man I think is the best pound for pound wrestler in the world.”

    Chael Sonnen – “You’re right Arn, Castagnoli is a tremendous wrestler and he wouldn’t hold the crown of the World Title if that wasn’t true. But, Mike Bennett is a 5 star athlete who believes with every fiber of his being that the World Championship is his rightful title. I got to sit down one on one with Bennett and go inside the mind of the challenger, and we will see that tonight before their match.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “In addition to that interview and World Title match, we will also see AJ Style defend his World Television Title once again in his open challenge. Fans, sit back and enjoy as WSW Ignition is here in full force tonight on Spike!”

    The ring bell tolls and we head to the ring, where Justin Roberts stands ready to introduce the first bout.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is an international three way dance set for one fall with a ten minute time limit.”

    The music of Matt Sydal hits, and the crowd cheers as the high flyer bounds his way out onto the stage! Sydal points to the crowd at Center Stage as he makes his way down the elevated runway to the ring. Team Dragon Gate’s music hits and Masato Yoshino heads out accompanied by his tag team partner Genki Horiguchi. The duo fought valiantly in the Three Way tag match last week to determine the number one contendership, but came up short. Yoshino is in singles action tonight.



    The lights in Center Stage dim, and a beautiful Japanese woman dressed in an elegant geisha robe walks out on stage. She lays a bouquet of cherry blossoms down on the stage. She steps to the side, as the lights completely shut off……




    The LED board EXPLODES in lights as the word KONG is emblazed onto the screen and an earth shattering gorilla roar is heard! Kong walks out onto the stage!

    A steady, pounding drum beat plays as the hulking brute slowly makes his way down to the ring, as Matt Sydal and Masato Yoshino look on with caution.


    Match One – International Three Way Dance: Matt Sydal vs. Masato Yoshino (w/ Genki Horiguchi) vs. Kong

    There is a buzz in the air, as Kong makes his debut in WSW. The masked behemoth stands in looking jacked as the bell sounds. Matt Sydal and Masato Yoshino circle around, each measuring their first move. Sydal charges at Kong, and Kong turns him inside out with a vicious clothesline. Yoshino charges in and is met with the same fate. Yoshino quickly gets up off the canvas and bounces off the ropes, charging again…..running into another full impact clothesline! Yoshino gets turned inside out. Kong turns and walks into a kick to the sternum by Sydal. Matt Sydal chops away at the massive chest of Kong, but it has no effect!

    Sydal sprints across the ring and hits the ropes, he fires back at Kong………



    And get backdropped over the ropes high in the air! Sydal lands with a thud on the elevated runway! “Holy Shit” chants break out, as Sydal splatters on the runway. Kong makes his way over to Masato Yoshino, and picks him up for a gorilla press slam with ease! Kong holds Yoshino high above his head………..and he throws him out of the ring onto Genki Horiguchi on the floor! Kong lets out a roar as he stands alone in the ring!

    Masato Yoshino slowly rises on the floor and gets back in the ring. Kong lunges at Yoshino, but Masato uses his superior speed to stay out of the reach of Kong. Yoshino fires back with quick kicks, trying to chip away at Kong. Yoshino starts to run the ropes, but runs into a shoulderblock from Kong that flattens him! Kong bounces off the ropes and goes for a senton splash, but Yoshino quickly rolls out of the way! Kong quickly gets back to his feet, and eats a few quick kicks from Yoshino followed by a step up enziguri! Kong is off balance, and he gets taken off his feet by a springboard missile dropkick by Matt Sydal! Kong goes down and rolls out of the ring!

    Masato Yoshino and Matt Sydal are left in the ring, and the two engage in a fast paced series of strikes. Kicks, chops, and knee strikes fly. Yoshino gets a knee to the back of Sydal and attempts a handspring elbow, but Sydal catches him and plants him with a German Suplex! Sydal keeps the action going and pulls Yoshino up and drops him again with a double springboard hurricanrana! Yoshino falls to the outside, leaving Sydal alone in the ring. Matt Sydal bounces off the ropes and goes to fly to the outside……………………




    But runs right into a big boot from Kong! Kong nearly decapitates Matt Sydal! Kong rips Sydal up and plants him with an inverted TKO! Masato Yoshino is back on the apron and catches the attention of Kong. Kong stands on the middle rope and vertical suplexes Masato Yoshino all the way back to the ring from the apron!

    The crowd is awed by the strength of Kong. Matt Sydal slowly gets to his feet in the corner……and is crushed by an avalanche clothesline by Kong! Sydal wilts in the corner, as Kong turns his attention back to Masato Yoshino. He goes for a popup powerbomb, but Yoshino attempts to counter with a hurricanrana……but it’s blocked! Yoshino acts quickly and transitions his body around to Kong’s back and locks in a Dragon Sleeper! The crowd cheers at the quick action, as Yoshino locks in the hold and drops the masked monster with an inverted DDT! Cover!

    Kong kicks out with authority! Masato Yoshino backs off in bewilderment, and loads up for a roundhouse kick to the head……..



    Kong ducks and rips Yoshino off the ground…………………………….BUCKLE BOMB!

    Kong throws Masato Yoshino into the turnbuckles with a sickening thud! The impact is so great it cause Yoshino to stagger back to Kong like a YoYo. Kong boots him in the midsection and plants him with a WRIST-CLUTCH POWERBOMB! Masato Yoshino is out cold.



    ……Matt Sydal flies through the air off the top……….he is caught in midair!

    Kong simply throws Sydal high in the air into the light, and Sydal crashes down on top on Masato Yoshino! Kong roars again, as he grabs Sydal by the head and smashes him down with a WRIST-CLUTCH POWERBOMB!

    Kong grabs both of his lifeless opponents and drags him to the center of the ring and covers both of them!

    Winner: Kong

    The crowd at Center Stage is in shock at the carnage created by Kong. Genki Horiguchi gets in the ring to check on his fallen tag team partner. Kong isn’t done……he grabs Horiguchi by the head and lands several wicked knee strikes the chest and plants him with a wrist-clutch powerbomb!

    Three men lay motionless in the ring. The mysterious woman in the geisha robe gets in the ring and places her hand on the monster’s chest. She reveals another bouquet of cherry blossoms and lays them in the ring between the three fallen men.

Gentleman, last week you earned the right to take on The Young Bucks for the World Tag Team Championships. That match will take place next week, how are you preparing for your shot at the gold?”

    Trevor Lee – “….Strip clubs and Jack Daniels.”

    Andrew Everett – “That’s very true my brother. You see Todd, Trevor and I were sitting down at the Cheetah last night and we both decided that we are sick and tired of hearing about how great the Young Bucks are. Their routine is stale, and it’s about time The Carolina Outlaws make their mark on WSW by ending their dynasty.”

    Trevor Lee – “From day one, we have made an impact that cannot be denied. Team Dragon Gate….The Motor City Machine Guns…………those cats fell to our greatness. Next week, we have a date with destiny ….and I tell you what, there is no other team we would rather face than the Young Bucks. They are standing in our spotlight, and it’s time for us to permanently end the plague to tag team wrestling that is The Young Bucks!”

    The Carolina Outlaws walk off, as we fade back to Center Stage, where the music of AJ Styles hits!

    The crowd jumps to their feet, as the World Television Champion walks out under a shower of sparks to a tremendous ovation. With the belt gleaming around his waist, Styles makes his way down to the ring and gets the microphone.


    AJ Styles – “Atlanta, Georgia……..your World Television Champion is here!”

    The crowd cheers, as AJ Styles takes off the World Television Title and holds it high in the air.

    AJ Styles – “This belt means the world to me. This belt signifies that each and every night, I battle the best of the best in the WSW locker room. I fight each week for the right to retain this title to prove that on that night, I’m the best wrestler alive.”

    The crowd cheers, as AJ Styles looks down at the World Television Title.

    AJ Styles – “I am honored to hold this championship, I love this championship, and I ain’t giving it up tonight! Y’all know my open challenge…..here I am……Take your best shot!”

    The crowd cheers as Chris Sabin, who comes down alone, poses in the corner making the Guns trademark finger gun pose. He hops down and stairs across the ring at AJ Styles, as the referee holds the World Television Championship high and the bell rings. The two men circle each other and bump fists in a show of respect before tying up! The two men—very familiar with each other—go through an impressive series of chain wrestling. Neither man is able gain an advantage and the exchange ends in a stalemate that draws applause. Loud “Let’s Go AJ” chants are heard, but a contingent of fans at Center Stage counters with “Let’s Go Sabin” chants.

    The two men lock up again and go through another series of chain wrestling, this time with each man trading armwringers followed by a series of arm drags and hip tosses that ends in yet another stalemate and more applause.

    In desperation, Sabin fights through the pain and rolls himself to the side, sending the men into the ropes and breaking the hold.

    Commercials

    Back from commercials we are backstage where Todd Keneley stands with Alberto El Patron and Armando Alejandro. Both men are clad in expensive suits.


    Todd Keneley – “Welcome back to Ignition. Joining me at this time are Armando Alejandro and Alberto El Patron. Alberto, last week Rey Mysterio Jr. had some very choice words regarding you….well to be honest he called you out. What’s your response?”

    Armando Alejandro – “His response?! Do you know who you are talking too? This is the greatest prizefighter in the world today. This is a combat sports god! He does not have time to focus on trash like Rey Mysterio Jr. You are looking at the future World Champion…..”

    Alberto El Patron – “(interrupting Armando)…..Armando, Amando…silencio por favor. The man wants to know what I think about Rey Mysterio, so I will simply tell him……..Rey, last week you had some mighty big words for such a small man. I didn’t hear you run your mouth when I ripped up your arm….all I heard was your cries of pain. I am the greatest fighter in World Series Wrestling, and the World Championship is my destiny. Just like James Storm, Rey……you are nothing more than a speedbump my road to destiny. You want to fight me again?! (smirks) Fine…..but know that you got off lucky last time…..I’m going to break your arm in two this time.”

    Armando Alejandro – “Vamos.”

    Armando Alejandro and Alberto El Patron walk off, as we fade from the backstage area to the announce position.

    Mauro Ranallo – “Well there you have it folks, Alberto El Patron accepted the challenge issued by Rey Mysterio Jr. These two men first met in the World Title Tournament. We all remember the gruesome postmatch attack by El Patron that put Mysterio Jr. on the shelf for six weeks. You know Rey is chomping at the bit to get another shot at Alberto.”

    Arn Anderson – “Alberto El Patron is a very dangerous man Mauro. He has a laser focus on being recognized as the greatest wrestler in the world, and he will do anything and hurt anyone in his quest to achieve this goal. But, if you can describe Rey Mysterio Jr. in one word, it’s resilient. This man is tough as nails, and he will be ready to exercise some demons.”

    Mauro Ranallo – “Well Arn you talk about being the greatest wrestler in the world. Here in WSW, that title is bestowed to the man who holds the World Championship, and tonight in our main event the champion Claudio Castagnoli will defend that honor against Mike Bennett. Chael, you got a chance to sit down with Bennett recently and pick the brain of the challenger.”

    Chael Sonnen – “I did. Make no mistake about it--Mike Bennett loves the life of wealth and fame as much as he says he does, but there is a drive within him that is uncommon. “

    The camera fades to a sit down interview video package between Chael Sonnen and Mike Bennett. The two men sit in director chairs in the ring inside an empty Center Stage. Bennett is dressed casually.

    Chael Sonnen – “Mike, you have the opportunity of a lifetime with a World Title shot against Claudio Castagnoli. Has any of this sunk in yet?”

    Mike Bennett – “It has, but to be honest with you Chael…getting this title shot is just step one. Step two is critical. Step two sees me pin Claudio Castagnoli in this very ring and become World Champion. Ask me this question then Chael, because that’s the moment when my life will come full circle.”

    Chael Sonnen – “Let’s talk a moment about how you got to this point. Your attack on Claudio Castagnoli two weeks ago triggered this match. Did you have this planned from the start?”

    Mike Bennett – “I’m an opportunist Chael. Just like you when you were in the octagon, I don’t wait for the moment to come to me….I seize the moment. Claudio Castagnoli can pull the tough guy act all he wants, but he knows what I’m capable of and he knows I struck fear and pain in him that night….and you know that moment will be running through his head when he looks across the ring and sees me standing there.”

    Chael Sonnen – “I want to go back to a phrase you used earlier, ‘full circle.’ Let’s talk about your career. Mike you are one of the most talented wrestlers in the world, but you have never been a World Champion. Are you ready for this?”

    Mike Bennett – “Being the World Champion is the reason I was put on this earth. Look at me, everything about me says superstar. I can be the most marketable and biggest box office draw in wrestling. Not Claudio Castagnoli. Look he’s a great wrestler, a tremendous talent….but at the end of the day, he’s nothing more than a bald muscle man. He’s not what a World Champion should be.”

    Chael Sonnen – “In your words, what should a World Champion be?”

    Mike Bennett – “A World Champion should exude power, fame, and fortune. Me. I’m Hollywood with a piledriver. I’m money walking. I’m pro wrestling Jesus. The World Title puts you on a pedestal. It’s a symbol that says ‘I’m the best in the world.’ These are the things that define a World Champion, and these are the very same things that define me.”

    The camera fades out to black.

    Boos are heard through Center Stage, as Mike Bennett walks out on stage holding the hand of the beautiful Maria. Bennett looks around at the crowd, smiles, looks at the camera and says, ‘This is MY time!’

    Mike Bennett and Maria get in the ring and pose together. Maria seductively removes Bennett’s tiger striped ring jacket. The two kiss as Bennett holds his arms high to jeers.

    The crowd begins to buzz as they wait in anticipation for the champion……..





    1812 Overture blares out!

    Claudio Castagnoli walks out with the World Championship strapped around his wait! The crowd cheers wildly, as Castagnoli stops on the elevated runway and pounds his chest before lifting a fist high in the air. Castagnoli makes his way to the ring and does not take his eyes off Mike Bennett as he enters the ring. The referee is sure to position himself between the two men to usher them to separate corners. Justin Roberts handles the formal ring introductions.


    Justin Roberts – Ladies and gentleman the following contest is your main event of the evening and set for one fall with a thirty minute time limit….for the WSW World Championship!

    Justin Roberts – “Now introducing the champion……..Standing 6’5” and weighing 230 pounds from Lucerne, Switerzland….he is the current reigning and defending WSW World Champion……….Claudio Castagnoli!

    The crowd cheers again, as Castagnoli unstraps his World Title and hands it to the referee, still not taking his eyes off Mike Bennett across the ring.

    Match Three: WSW World Championship – Mike Bennett (w/ Maria) vs. Claudio Castagnoli (c)

    Castagnoli leans back and crouches down in his corner as the bell rings! Like a bullet, Castagnoli explodes out of his corner and takes Bennett down with a double leg takedown! Castagnoli begins to rain down a series of forearms and elbows to the unsuspecting Mike Bennett. Bennett squirms and tries to break free, but Castagnoli continues to pound away!

    Bennett eventually is able to push himself back into a corner, but Castagnoli shoots in and brings Bennett to his feet with a wicked European uppercut, and another, and another! Castagnoli roars as he is fired up. Bennett flops through the ropes to the elevated runway to catch a breather. Castagnoli doesn’t wait and he leaves the ring and stalks Bennett up the elevated runway. He grabs Bennett and delivers a vertical suplex on the elevated runway! Bennett clutches his back after the landing, and the referee continues the 10 Count. Determined to pin Bennett in the ring, Castagnoli slings Bennett back into the ring with a release overhead belly to belly suplex!

    Castagnoli gets back in the ring, but Bennett rolls all the way across the ring to the apron where Maria pulls him down to the floor to try and give the challenger a bit of a reprieve. Castagnoli leaves the ring and hops to the floor. He walks around the ring, but Maria gets in his face! Castagnoli tries to get around Maria, but she continues to scream at him and then slaps him across the face! The crowd “ohhhs” and Maria loads up from another slap, but Claudio catches her arm! Before anything further can happen, Mike Bennett charges at Castagnoli and tackles him all the way back into the steel guard rail! Mike Bennett picks Claudio up and whips him into the steel ring post!

    Needing to pin or submit Castagnoli in the ring to win the title, Bennett rolls Castagnoli into the ring. Claudio looks a bit dazed and tries to shake the cobwebs out. Mike Bennett lays the boots to Castagnoli and stomps him all the way back to the corner. Castagnoli tries to strike back from his knees, and makes his way back to his feet…..but Bennett lays into the chiseled chest of Claudio with chops. The chops echo throughout Center Stage, as Bennett fires them off like a machine gun! Claudio attempts to get out of the corner and fights back with headbutts! Castagnoli drives his dome into Bennett, backing him up. Castagnoli charges out of the corner, but runs right into a spinebuster! Maria cheers from the outside as Mike Bennett climbs to the top………

Bennett rolls to the apron. Castagnoli heads over and grabs Bennett through the ropes. With the referee distracted by Maria, Bennett gets desperate and nails a low blow from the apron! Castagnoli grabs his groin, and the referee turns around to see Bennett drop Castagnoli’s throat across the top rope.

    Maria hops into the ring and tends to Mike Bennett. Bennett rolls himself to the corner, and with Maria’s help he raises his head to look at the celebration of Claudio Castagnoli with contempt and pain in his eyes.

    Claudio Castagnoli stands tall, holding the beautiful gold World Title belt high to the cheers of the Center Stage fans as this week’s edition of Ignition comes to a close.
