LSW Newswire: “Battle at the Alamo”
We enter into a studio room, where JB, Jeremy Borasch, is sitting on a stool, with a little monitor right next to him.
Borasch: Hello everyone, I’m JB, Jeremy Borasch, welcoming you to the first LSW Newswire. Here we’ll recap what’s happening in Lonestar Wrestling, giving everyone answers to the questions pressing their minds. While this past weekend’s main story was the Battle at the Alamo, fans witnessed what is already a match of the year candidate when LSW World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho defended his title for the first time against the Samoa Submission Machine, Samoa Joe.
Highlights of the match flash on the screen. We see the brutal kicks and chops administered by both men. By the end of the clips, both men are bruised and bleeding, when Chris Jericho nailed the Codebreaker for the win.
JB: After the match, LSW.com received this exclusive interview with Samoa Joe.
The screen cuts to Samoa Joe holding a towel to his mouth and nose, wiping the blood away.
Joe: Chris Jericho, tonight, I applaud you. I went out there with one goal; to win the LSW Heavyweight Championship. You went out there with the goal of retaining it. One of us succeeded. And to that, you earn my complete respect…and my respect is NOT something earned easily. But see Chris, you’re still holding exactly what I want; exactly what I need. I need that title, Chris. I need it. And I’m going to have it. We beat the hell out of each other out there tonight. We beat the living (censor) out of one another, and you beat me fair and square. Maybe after that code breaker to my head, I’m a little concussed, but right now, I’m challenging you to a rematch at the first Showdown in Victoria. After the fight you put on tonight, I know damn well you’re man enough, Chris. I’ll be waiting for an answer.
The screen cuts back to the studio.
JB: And how would champion Chris Jericho respond to Joe’s challenge? After “Battle at the Alamo” ended, Jericho was told of the challenge and had this to say.
Camera cuts to Jericho holding an ice-pack on his neck.
Jericho: So after that ass-clown Christian Cage manages to worm his way to guaranteed title shot, I find out you’re challenging me after tonight’s match, huh Joe? Ya’ know, I watched the little promo you cut, wiping blood away from your mouth, and I feel for you. I got this damn ice-pack on my neck after you tried ripping my head off with the choke, I got welts the size of watermelons on my thighs where you kicked me. In that ring tonight, I felt like I was 25 years old again, wrestling Chris in Japan. And I loved every minute of it. Yeah, I’m bleeding, I’m bruised, but I’m still the LSW World Heavyweight Champion. Do I accept your challenge? You’re damn right I do, big man. In Victoria, it’s going to be you and me for this title right here. And I’ll bring you my best, like I have no doubts you will. So mark it on your calendars, Jericho-holics, because Chris Jericho/Samoa Joe II is coming.
The camera cuts back to JB.
JB: And there you have it, folks, Chris Jericho vs. Samoa Joe for the first Showdown of Season II. I can only imagine what kind of a match we’ll see if last night’s match was any indicator. Another man who had something important to say was the man who until last night was undefeated. That man is Austin Aries.
The camera cuts to Austin Aries in street clothes, his hair still wet from the post-match shower.
Aries: Everyone likes to think I cared so much about being undefeated. That just came with the territory of being the best in the business. Christian Cage, I don’t care that you blemished my spotless record. What I care about is the fact that you’re carrying around the briefcase containing what should have been MY World Title shot. Since I came to LSW, I’ve held this moniker of being “the future” of wrestling as we know it. Well last night, I was ready to break the glass ceiling and prove that I’m NOT the future, I’m the present…I’m the now. In Victoria, there’s going to be hell to pay the minute I see you.
The camera goes back to Borasch.
JB: Strong words from a very angry Austin Aries. We tried getting in contact with Christian Cage, but he refused to go on camera. We did get this response from him though:

Normally, these bookings would come from LSW owner Shawn Michaels, but as we all know by now, Michaels was viciously attacked at the end of “Battle at the Alamo”, and all evidence points to one young man; Cody Rhodes, son of the legendary Dusty Rhodes. Apparently the acting commissioner, who I’m sorry to say, I do not know the identity of, has invited Cody Rhodes to speak his case at the first Showdown. What will the young Rhodes have to say? And just who is the acting commissioner? Questions upon questions as LSW Season II: Genesis kicks into high gear.
Well fans, as we end the very first edition of the LSW Newswire, I leave you with several quick clips of what the wrestlers of Lonestar Wrestling have to say heading into Act 1, Scene 1: Showdown. I’ll see you in 2 weeks.
A quick montage of clips is show, cutting quickly between the wrestlers.
Homicide and Low Ki are standing in the back wearing street clothes.
Ki: Hey punk, just so you know, me and Cide here came just for you. And I’m gonna shove size 12 Timberwolf right up your ass, bitch.
The camera cuts to Randy Orton, sitting staring at the ground.
Orton: I may have come up short tonight, but don’t forget…I am the Legend Killer. And I’ve found my legend.
The camera cuts to the Murder City Machine Guns.
Sabin: While everyone else sat around during the off-season, the Murder City Machine Guns toured the world, capture the gold, and…
Shelley: Don’t rhyme.
Sabin: Right. Whatever the case may be, whatever city we end up in, we’re the best tag team in the world.
Shelley: We’re going to do what we do best; take on all-comers. Because we’re the Murder…City…Machine Guns.
The camera cuts to Johnny Jeter, who’s admiring his title.
Jeter: This baby right here…it’s all that matters. Money in the Bank? Why would I need money, I already hold the gold.
The camera cuts to Edge.
Edge: This was the prelude…the beginning. I may not have won the Money in the Bank for a third time, but I’m still going to rise to the top. I came here with one goal…the LSW World Heavyweight Championship. And I will get it. Whether it’s Jericho, Samoa Joe, Christian Cage or El Dandy that holds it, I will face them and I will beat them. The Rated R Superstar never breaks a promise.
Edge smiles as the camera fades away.
