XPW Online #18
Cut to the in-studio hosts for the show:
SAMMI LANE & FRENCH ANGEL
Boisterous welcome to the show… BIG main event news to be revealed TONIGHT RE: the future of GDT Inc (parent company to XPW Remixed)… the truth
to the rumors of sell-outs, buy-ins and mergers will be revealed by President Ed “Strangler” Lewis in a press conference later tonight… meanwhile XPW
Remixed managers are on full display tonight, as ex-GDT Inc partner The Grand Wizard leads his charges into battle against rival “Wild” Red Berry in a
deadly monetary dispute! Wendi Richter ups the ante for his PPV title defense, “Real Deal” Damien Steele squashes the “Real/Fake” Lord Humongous
debate, and The Miz teams up with War Games partner Human Tornado to take on Heath Slater & Honky Tonk Man in tonight’s MAIN EVENT! Get ready!
Nuclear-level heat on Mahal; especially after video recap of his heinous assault on Lou Thesz (see XPW TV Episode #42)… explosive promo to open the
show (you see why it was cut from TV) that is answered by Lou’s Shooters Club brethren Dan Severn & Drake Younger… not much to say on the mic,
Younger prefers to let his Kendo stick do the talking… stiff comeuppance for Mahal with each crowd-pleasing whack, but in the end Mahal’s pedigree is
too much and Severn is forced to throw in the white towel for Younger after a dangerous amount of time in Mahal’s camel clutch… Jinder is on a roll –
Saeed adds to his heat & presentation – and now an injured Lou Thesz looms for him on the horizon… Jinder Mahal: next XPW Champion (!?!?)…
”Crazy Monkey” Jun Kasai tries to force himself upon Sunny again in another dark humor segment… he catches her in the backstage catering area and
tries to put on the moves… but his misinterpretation of American customs, ridiculously-scarred exterior, and perverted mannerisms (including jerking
off a banana and wearing a thong) drive Sunny away screaming (a great comeuppance to sex-starved, teenage delinquents watching everywhere)… Jun Kasai
is left to smile a quizzical, toothless grin and stuff his face with a banana to end the sketch.
PG-13 roll up on JTG backstage, apparently pissed at his desertion (see XPW Online #17)… but instead of bringing the ruckus, PG-13 try to RAP for
JTG’s approval! He just rolls his eyes, cuts them off, and pleasantly invites them to meet him in the ring on the next XPW Online to handle their
biz… “homie”… “Homie = good” in PG-13’s mind and they nod and smile appreciatively as JTG struts off the set muttering under his breath about "dem
USO's (2013) w/ Tamina versus HAVANA PITBULLS (2007)
Uso’s thunderous entrance… expert chemistry on display; with crisp synchronicity only a tandem of blood brothers could master… Tamina adds the wild,
feminine fury at ringside - choosing to be involved not because she HAS to, but because she wants to… Havana Pitbulls on the other hand continue to
tease dissension… solo they are nearly unstoppable, but together seem to grow disjointed… miscommunication at matches end results in Ricky Reyes
accidentally superkicking his OWN partner Rocky Romero in the face… flying slash on Rocky from Jey Uso wins the match… Uso’s rejoice, Pitbulls sulk…
New Jack in a shoot video setting, telling stories of his times with Sandman on the road... his conversation with a despondent Sandman on the last
XPW Online... and now, Sandman's subsequent "disappearence"... New Jack ain't TOO worried cuz his drunk ass be doing this all the
time... but this time it's different, and New Jack sends a shout to Sandman to get his ass back in the game.
** CUT **
"Of Deepest Nightmares"
Horror movie chic, describing the graphic descent of Pogo the Clown into utter madness (shades of his John Wayne Gacy origins) and the reemergence of
giant Haystacks Calhoun on the fantasy wrestling scene as great defender... but at "Scene of the Crime", one man goes down... in a "Body Bag
Officer Cabana gets minutes to open with his “dick-head cop on a power trip” routine… Sabu gets the wild man entrance… Tommaso Ciampa is the steady
hand, impressing with his futuristic power offense… but it’s still not enough, as Cabana accidentally tasers himself to great cheers – Ciampa misses
a charge into a steel chair face plant – and gets triple moonsaulted by Sabu for the pin… Sabu ’95 continues to astound with his daredevil antics…
he puts Officer Cabana through a table after the bout to great cheers... story of the match seems to be Tommaso Ciampa's increasing frustration
bubbling just beneath the surface...
Intense promo from Wendi Richter, vowing to avenge her friends & uphold the new honor of the XPW Woman’s title when she battles Natalya Neidhart at
“Scene of the Crime”… but Nattie has driven this Southern Belle so wild, that Richter is upping the ante by making their PPV match a “Street Fight”!
An all-woman street fight, first in XPW Remixed history! Coming soon @ “Scene of the Crime”!
THE SHEIK & KEN PATERA (w/ The Grand Wizard)
NEW TWIN TOWERS (w/ Wild Red Berry)
Sheer insanity – the absolute BEST (or “worst”, depending on your taste) of XPW Remixed… match starts in a frenzy with the mouthy rival managers TGW
& Wild Red Berry going at it on the stick… that leads to the introduction of their charges, and a brutal, stiff (yet brief) affair… with two “heel”
teams in the mix, the fans are left to cheer for the sake of brutality alone, and thankfully that option is kept to a minimum… they brawl all around
ringside and into the fans… no finish but TGW & Berry are left alone in the ring barking at each other, until Berry has enough of the talk and takes
TGW OUT with a right hand! Shades of his old wrestling character, and Berry is quickly stripping off his suit coat and hat in a ferocious display
that draws cheers! TGW is down holding his jaw… and Berry doesn’t see Patera creeping up behind him! SWINGING FULL NELSON NECKBREAKER on Wild Red
Berry by Ken Patera!
That outburst draws XPW Tag Team champion FABULOUS KANGAROOS into the ring for the save! They double-team Patera and finish him with a
FabKangs-version of a modified 3D! But just as they finish executing the finish, the FabKangs are rushed and surprised by Billy Gunn & Road Dogg… the
NEW AGE OUTLAWS! Fameasser! Juke-n-jive jabs! Stanky leg kneedrop! Yo azz better call somebody!
But THIS in turn draws out the Diamond Dynasty! Still dressed in their business-wear finest, Matt Morgan & Alex Riley ambush and collectively destroy
the NAO! Finishes with Alex Riley holding Billy Gunn down for Missy Hyatt to SLAP! And Matt Morgan running through Road Dogg, while Buddy Rogers
talks trash! All the while, OG Sheik, Bull Ramos & Bam Bam Bigelow are caught up in security and brawling all throughout the building! This is
madness! Cameras are about to cut when suddenly the FabKangs have BASHED Buddy Rogers in the back of the head with the belt and stolen off! FabKangs
& Berry retreat up the ring with belts held high, while the Dynasty forefather is left floored and shaking his fist in fury! Cut the film!
DANNY HAVOC versus "LORD HUMONGOUS" (w/ Damien Steele) (Xtreme Rulez Match)
[color=gold]Damien Steele opens in-ring segment with his entourage… grows agitated with the crowd and their vulgar chants… says because of the
previous shows events he can no longer be responsible for the caretaking of the King of the Death Match title, and is hereby bequeathing it to his man
Lord Humongous… the REAL Lord Humongous! Damien Steele feigns comedic ignorance and says he doesn’t know who that guy is that Ruckus brought in, but
he’s NOT the real Lord Humongous! This statement conjures the theme song for DANNY HAVOC and the perennial thorn-in-Steele’s-side struts to the
entrance ramp for some trash talk! He hates the way Steele is handling the KotDM title like a bitch and is fixing to do something bout it right now…
Havoc takes it to all of them with a surprising burst of weaponry and kamikaze dives, but eventually might makes right and Havoc eats a mid-air
chokeslam that grounds him for good… repeating powerbomb on a steel chair (the last on a cinderblock) followed by a HUUUUUGE powerbomb through a
table finishes Havoc’s night… this gives Steele the opportunity to proudly strap the KotDM belt around his new champion Lord Humongous.
Winner: LORD HUMONGOUS
But finally – amidst their obnoxious celebrating – and the growing chants of “SID! SID! SID!” from the crowd – he comes… heavy metal blaring, the
giant Sid Vicious steps through the entrance curtain to a huge pop… crazy, bug-eyed walk to the ring… Steele begs off... the two giants face off,
and gain Sid is marginally larger than Lord Humongous… the Lord goes to take a headbutt, but is rebuffed… and to a great cheer Sid CHOKESLAMS Lord
Humongous! Steele runs up behind him but is caught! Sid CHOKESLAMS Steele! Now Jasmin St Claire runs up behind Sid but SHE gets caught too! Crowd
explodes at the thought of another chokeslam, but Lord Humongous is finally up again so Sid release St Claire… but finishes with an awesome POWERBOMB
to Lord Humongous! With the heels scattered, Sid has the mic and makes the brief, shouting challenge – SID VERSUS LORD HUMONGOUS @ “SCENE OF THE
CRIME”! POWERBOMB CHALLENGE!!!”
GDT Inc as a parent company is selling the third share of XPW Remixed to the highest bidder… after many months of dealing they’ve finally settled
in on a buyer… “B&B&B Incorporated”… what makes this particular buyout so news worthy is the inclusion of a well known Territory Wars GM in the mix…
LOGAN BOGGS has gone into business with friends and partners Paul Bowser & Carl Beane to produce a new company that is purchasing the 3rd share of
XPW Remixed! Here are the players in this corporate ménage-a-trois…
LOGAN BOGGS: Legendary figure-head of past Territory Wars institutions as WCW, and now retains majority control of TNA Wrestling. A side
venture for him, this new development is said to provide a valuable pipeline to XPW Remixed talent and resources…
CARL BEANE: Legendary sports radio broadcaster best known as the public address announcer for the Boston Red Sox… since 2003 Beane has been
behind the microphone of every home game at Fenway Park, including Games 1 and 2 of the 2004 and 2007 World Series, opening each game with the words
"Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Welcome to Fenway Park." His inclusion in this purchase is similar in love & stature (but hopefully not
financial fallout) as Curt Schilling had in that RPG company that’s been all over sports talk radio in Boston nowadays…
PAUL BOWSER: Legendary Boston area promoter looking to get back into the game… making his Territory Wars debut, the great Bowser has been
instrumental in the groundbreaking success of the original Broken City Championship Wrestling and AWA outfits… his close partnership with an
established territory wars force (Logan Boggs) gives him the political “in” required to crack the Territory Wars upper echelon… he looks to return
fantasy wrestling to its prior glory, much like Logan bogg’s revitalization of TNA Wrestling with Ring of Honor grit…
Ed “Strangler” Lewis proudly welcomes B&B&B Inc into the fold, and warmly invites them to the next XPW Remixed supershow “Scene of the Crime” as
his personal guests… the deal will be finalized, announced and celebrated on that night accordingly! Big things are in the future for XPW Remixed as
we gaze towards “Baptized in Blood”… but first we must stop at the “Scene of the Crime”!
THE MIZ & HUMAN TORNADO
HEATH SLATER & HONKY TONK MAN
Video recap of Slater's guitar shot to Tornado, and his joining forces with Miz... Miz & Tornado gets a massive pop upon their entrance...
match starts with Tornado & Slater... They lock up and Tornado pushes Slater away quickly so he can strut, dance and get the crowd going (and Slater
& Honky's blood boiling)... but when Slater flies off the handle, Tornado is quick to respond with offense... shoulderblocks, splits, leap
frogs and dropkicks... Slater & Honky must regroup...
Back in, Slater dodges a chokeslam attempt, kicks Tornado and tags in Honky Tonk Man... MIZ gets involved and breaks up the double team... Miz
finally gets the the legal tag and goes after Honky Tonk Man in the corner (announcers remind you of their prior clash over the TV title)... Honky
Tonk Man with a running knee to MIZ, attempts a suplex - but MIZ blocks it - gets Honky Tonk Man up for a vertical suplex... but Honky Tonk Man
counters THAT, so MIZ hits a big clothesline in the corner to finish the sequence.... MIZ tosses him across the ring, but Slater clips MIZ from
behind... MIZ pulls himself up, but both Slater and Honky Tonk Man jump up and take him down with a big top rope superplex... More double teaming
by Slater and Honky Tonk Man on MIZ with Slater getting back the tag... Slater with an abdominal stretch on MIZ and uses Honky Tonk Man to apply more
pressure... MIZ fights back and Tornado gets the hot tag! Tornado takes out Slater and Honky Tonk Man with lightning-fast offense... Tornado plants
Slater with a big spinning backhand and does the two-step stomps onto Honky Tonk Man in the corner... Tornado with a somersault senton on Honky Tonk
Man into the corner... MIZ with a springboard shoulder block on Honky Tonk Man and Tornado takes out Slater with a clothesline.
With Miz, Slater & Honky down outside the ring - Tornado hits a suicide dive onto the pile! "XPW! XPW!" Back in the ring, Honky Tonk Man somehow
kicks out... Slater boots Tornado in the face allowing Honky Tonk Man to hit "Shake Rattle-n-Roll" for a close two count! Miz clothelsines Slater,
tosses him over the top rope. Miz turns around just as HTM is about to clobber him with the guitar... but Human Tornado grabs it from his hand! He
SMASHES it over Honky's head to a big pop! Heath Slater in for the save but he eats a SCF from Miz! 1!.. 2!.. 3! Miz & Human Tornado did it!
Winners: MIZ & HUMAN TORNADO
Postmatch Miz & Human Tornado dance and party down in the ring, while Shane Douglas appears on the entrancer ramp to hold up his championship belt
and try to taunt them... fade out

XPW TV Episode #43 ("BiB1 World Premiere")
** EDITORS NOTE **
This is the official “World Television Premiere” of XPW Remixed presents: Baptized in Blood 1… a made-for-TV clip show designed to hype the upcoming
supershow “Baptized in Blood II”… For Territory Wars reasons, this week falls on the cusp of the May/June change and right between my monthly
schedule (original programming returning June 5th)… so it’s a “filler” episode… but it’s worth it to sell a few extra DVD/Blu-Ray copies of the
original event and to hype the upcoming event as well… HUGE things on the horizon for XPW Remixed as we begin the march to BiB2…
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
Welcome to the show… fresh on the heels of “Scene of the Crime”, XPW Remixed is riding a whole new wave of momentum.. Old scores were settled,
new feuds established - and a championship road wrought in bloodshed and destruction… now we are finally on the horizon of the single biggest event
in XPW Remixed history… “BAPTIZED in BLOOD II”!! Banned in the US, the Xtreme Rulez “Tournament of Death” returns for one night only! As a harbinger
of things to come, tonight we look back at the first time XPW Remixed made history… this is a very special “Best of” episode highlighting the FIRST
“Baptized in Blood” supershow that put this company on the map… plus, more information on the merger with B&B&B Enterprises as XPW Remixed president
Ed “Strangler” Lewis is set to make the decision final tonight!
Three pits surround the ring – one with syringes, another with glass and the final one is filled with thumbtacks. Cult ReBourne makes its eerie
entrance beneath moody black-and-red lighting and smoke machines. The Heath Ledger-inspired Doink ReBourne has quickly gained a cult following in XPW
Remixed for his unhinged promos and serial killer/cult leader antics. Here, Thumbtack Jack and Danny Havoc have a new look – rocking horrifying face
paint and “Doink ReBourne” T-shirts. Doink himself doesn’t accompany them to ringside, as he’s still recovering from his last match. Finally, the
MESSIAH gets his tremendous God’s Fury entrance complete with singular white spotlight, the Messiah symbol and clouds of marijuana smoke from the
audience. The roof nearly comes off the building as he enters with slow, dramatic lighting ala Triple H. Thumbtack Jack rushes to attack Messiah
when he gets on the ring apron, and we’re off. Hard-hitting, intense and very physical. In the matches high spot, Danny Havoc misses a top rope
attempt at interference and Messiah catches him in mid-air with his elevated Diamond Cutter right into the pit of glass, smashing it upon
impact and taking out Danny Havoc for good. A few more teases into the pits, including Thumbtack Jack wielding twin syringes at one point, looking
like a bloody doctor gone mad. Thumbtack Jack took a Death Valley Driver off the ring apron into the pit of syringes, but it still wasn’t the finish.
In the end, the last remaining pit of thumbtacks was actually lit ablaze before Thumbtack Jack took the dramatic plunge through it in a fiery
collision. MESSIAH quickly pinned his still-smoldering corpse for the victory. Messiah performs a bloody sign of the cross upon himself, offering
thanks and praise for his brutal victory.
Winner: THE MESSIAH

** Savior 2 tha Xtreme **
John Zandig debuted at "Scene of the Crime"... backstage after his assault on "Sick" Nick Mondo he had these words to say...
decipher them if you dare...
** BACKSTAGE SKIT (“Business Decisions Intro”) **
MSD and camera crew are prepping for a backstage interview, when they overhear a frank discussion between GDT Inc operating partners Ed “Strangler”
Lewis & Joe “Toots” Mondt… Mister Mondt seems a bit perturbed with his partner Lewis over selecting B&B&B Enterprises to partner up with so quickly…
Mister Mondt just wanted a few extra days to go over some additional proposals and counter-offers… but Ed Lewis insists Triple B is the way to go, so
we shall proceed… Ed Lewis exit stage left, cameras linger on Toot Mondt’s stone cold, expressionless face as he picks up his cell phone to make a
Sabu enters first to a massive pop. His face is etched with grim determination and he does NOT point skyward to start the match. The ring ropes have
been removed for this last Tournament of Death semi-finals match, and the visual of crisscrossing barbed wire strands running around it gives you the
chills. House lights darken for the impending arrival of the Original Sheik, and The Grand Wizard appears on the video wall. He cuts a brief, brash
promo. He’s BACK on the XPW Remixed scene, he’s splitting with this Gold Dust Trio Inc business partners and promising to move XPW to the East Coast
permanently! Big boos from the downtown Hollywood crowd for that one. After sufficiently getting the crowed riled up, TGW reveals the motivations
for the Sheik’s attack upon his own nephew – Sabu the Elephant Boy is a pale facsimile of the Original Sheik himself, born in his image. But here in
XPW Remixed, the OG Sheik is still the King of the Jungle and father of the pride, keeping the herd in line and weeding out the weak. Guess which
side of the fence Sabu the Elephant Boy falls on? We’ll find out tonight in the middle of that barbed wire death trap… Original Sheik suddenly
slides into the ring from the darkness behind Sabu carrying a flaming torch and wearing a black turban! He blows a HUGE fireball into Sabu’s face to
start the match. On the video screen, TGW chuckles smugly and blinks out of transmission. The focus is squarely upon the Original Sheik and Sabu.
OG Sheik has immediate control and bloodies beats and lacerates his nephew Sabu in a vicious, violent spectacle. The whips into the barbed wire
strands are fierce and unrestrained. Those viewers familiar with the Sabu/Funk barbed wire match from ‘90s ECW would even cringe watching this
display. Sabu severs an arm tendon and the OG Sheik gashes his shoulder blade resulting in a long, dangerously deep laceration. In the matches
dramatic finish, Sabu actually launches himself off the strands of barbed wire with a somersault plancha that catches the Sheik and impales them BOTH
upon the barbed wire strands! The bloody tangle of wire and flesh quickly rips from the ring posts and both men tumble to the arena floor, a
hopelessly trapped mess. It’s quickly apparent something has gone dreadfully wrong as both men struggle in the barbed wire death trap. Referees, XPW
officials and paramedics rush the scene with wire cutters, stretchers and bandages. They are still cutting the two men loose when the segment
abruptly ends and the PPV broadcast switches to a quick commercial spot for the Bruno Sammartino/”Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers main event.
Winner: NONE (no finish)
** CUT TO PRESENT DAY **
** BACKSTAGE SKIT (“Business Decisions Are Made”) **
XPW Remixed president Ed “Strangler” Lewis prepping for the arrival of B&B&B Enterprises and bragging to all who will listen how great a time they had
at “Scene of the Crime”, and can’t wait to start contributing… just then - a secretary rushes into the room alongside Mister Mondt clutching a
facsimile page… it’s a last-minute counter offer that even Ed Lewis has to blink and stare twice at to comprehend… Mister Mondt just smiles - he
told Mr Lewis there were other buyers worth listening to… Ed Lewis silently nods in agreement… the contract finalization will have to wait until
this final mystery bid is considered…

"The Champ Is Here"
Reigning XPW Boston champion JOHN CENA touches on his Xtremely grueling "I Quit" match at "SotC" and promises hell to pay for
whoever stands in his way at "Baptized in Blood 2"...
[color=lightblue]JOHN CENA: I am a true extension of myself – I am me. This is not ballet, it’s a contact business. I hit like a mack truck
and I don’t do any of that stuff. I don’t have any elaborate uniforms, I come to the ring in a T-shirt, a pair of sneakers and some shorts. I don’t
use fake tan. Sometimes I’m fat, sometimes I’m skinny, sometimes I’m white as a ghost, sometimes I got a good tan, it’s just a matter of how much sun
I can get that week. I don’t doll myself up for TV because I want people to accept me for who I am. Like I said before, I can’t stress this enough,
that’s either in a negative or a positive, because either way is a result.
8) "VICIOUS" VIC GRIMES versus JUN KASAI (c) (45-foot Scaffold Match for the "King of the Death Match" title)
"The Scaffold Match". The mere mention alone is enough to conjure a whirlwind of emotion. Good, bad, dangerous, impractical. Pro
wrestling has run the gamut when it comes to scaffold matches. From the origins (Memphis 1971) to the divine (Road Warriors vs Midnight Express,
Starrcade 1986) to the horrifying (PN News, WCW 1991). Scaffold matches hold a special place in pro wrestling lore. And with the high-as-a-kite
"Vicious" Vic Grimes and high flying Jun Kasai looking to settle their blood feud once and for all - the scaffold match was the perfect
solution. XPW has actually held it's share of Scaffold Matches in the past. Baptized in Blood 3 had a scaffold match. But perhaps XPW's
most infamous contribution to the genre was the "Free Fall" main event match between New Jack and "Vicious" Vic Grimes (2001). In
that match, Vic Grimes nearly killed himself when he missed the stack of tables and crashed down onto the ring ropes. Another inch in the wrong
direction and he would've been Owen Hart (true story). Suffice to say, Vic Grimes is no stranger to this type of death-defying match. But this
title fight starts on the entrance ramp and continues all throughout the arena, as every paying fan gets a chance to see these two madmen up close and
personal. Good, stiff, hard hitting match with enough creative athletic spots from Jun Kasai (who uses whatever setting he's in to
bound/bounce/strike from) to offset the brute physicality of the fatman Vic Grimes. The moves, speed, velocity and bumps Vic Grimes takes at his size
is simply phenomenal. Live electricity comes into play at one point, as Kasai shocks Grimes with an electrical cord (complete with sparkling
electrical charge and sound effect). With the audience suitably riled up from the traveling brawl, the two men finally make their way up opposite
ends of the scaffold (where the King of the Death Match title hangs from the ceiling of the arena). Lots of nerve-wracking teases and near falls
(literally) as Kasai and Grimes struggle mightily 45-feet high above the arena floor. In the matches climatic finish, Vic Grimes sparks a huge
flaming torch to use as a weapon - only to be disarmed by the martial-arts mayhem of Jun Kasai. The burning torch rolls off the scaffold where it
lands upon the dozens of erect tables in the ring (pre-soaked in lighter fluid from an earlier segment in the match) instantly setting them ABLAZE!
So now Kasai and Grimes are clashing high above the arena, while plumes of smoke from the burning tables beneath them open up like the Gates of Hell
themselves. Grimes counters a Kasai hurricanrana attempt into a running Powerbomb that propels the "Crazy Monkey" off the scaffold and
through the burning tables for the dramatic finish! "HOLY SHIT!!!" and "XPW!" chants fill the arena. "Vicious" Vic
Grimes pounds his chest and yells out in primal fury as he unsheathes the King of the Death Match championship and claims it as his own. The Cannibal
Cartel only gets higher at "Baptized in Blood".
Winner (and NEW KotDM Champion): "VICIOUS" VIC GRIMES
The Cannibal Cartel continues its bloody rise to the top, as their leader Vic Grimes takes the King of the Death Match title tonight...
Backstage finale culminating with the arrival and introduction of Triple B Enterprises and associates… they are greeted warmly by President Lewis,
others and even Toots Mondt… From left to right; Paul Bowser, Logan Boggs & Carl Beane… they each get a few moments to put themselves over and
position B&B&B Enterprises in the forefront… Ed Lewis says they are eager to begin business, but the contracts are not done up yet… he apologizes
for the delay, but as a caveat (and gesture of good faith) Ed Lewis is giving B&B&B Enterprises booking authority on the next XPW TV Episode… but for
now, enjoy the L.A. nightlife (and there’s A LOT of it) courtesy of the don Ed “Strangler” Lewis himself… the group of business men adjourn their
meeting and head out “off the clock”… Mister Mondt, however, graciously declines…

"An Xtreme Shooter"
SHANE DOUGLAS: If we’d had a backer like Panda Energy or Ted Turner, I think….no, I KNOW we’d wipe the mat with the WWF!! MSD is that
talented a booker and our dressing room is that talented. Vince McMahon ripped everything off from us. He’ll tell you he didn’t but it’s as
blatant as the nose on my face....
Responding to the B&B&B merger, counter-offer, and rumors that exiled conman Jack Pfefer may be trying to get back into business..
LOU THESZ: As you discovered, there is more speculation about wrestling history than any of us ever imagined would occur. It seems even
stranger to be history myself! I wish I could be of more help and if some stories surface in the vast pool of memories sloshing around in my brain, I
will post them... Pfefer really had a way with tangled webs in this crazy business. That story sounds very feasible.

MESSIAH versus DOINK REBOURNE ("Baptized in Blood" finale)
(Joined in progress)
Months and months of anger, frustration, psychological warfare and torture come to a head as these two opposing forces clash in the middle of the
blood-stained ring. Broken glass, bloody tables, dented steel chairs and thumbtacks litter the ring, making it look like a war zone. Meanwhile the
unholy clash between Darkness and Light continues to rage. MESSIAH – who entered the match tonight wearing Altar Boy garb in a really magnetic,
stunning walk out – has been stripped down to all black and both men are bloody messes. Doink takes the advantage and brutalizes the Messiah in a
stark and stunning display. The madness and insanity is evident in his eyes, as he lashes the MESSIAH for 1,000 years of torment. The whole crux of
the angle involves Bourne destroying the specter of “Doink” forever by forcing Messiah to embrace him. In this case, it means dramatically
unsheathing the old school neon-colored clown get up in the matches ending segment. Doink ReBourne makes a spectacle of removing the briefcase from
beneath the ring and opening it to reveal the costume. He has the frizzy green mop of hair and face-painted mask like a hunter would hoist a skinned
scalp. But before he can stuff Messiah's bloody head in it, the crimson Son of Xtreme retaliates with unholy vengeance. With the bloodthirsty
crowd urging him on, Messiah dominates and decimates Doink ReBourne in gruesome, horrifying fashion. To the dramatic moment of Doink ReBourne
actually begging off and showing the emotion that was lost the entire time. But this time, Messiah does not spare him - he slays him. Light
tube-assisted "Godsmack" (spinning fireman carry into a stunner) seals the deal. In the matches ceremonial ending, Messiah holds aloft a
bloody kendo stick and defiantly burns the offending Doink the Clown costume once and for all. "MESSIAH!" chants ring out long and loud for
XPW's homebrewed Superstar who finally gets his big XPW Remixed moment by winning the "Baptized in Blood" tournament and vanquishing

XPW TV Episode #44 ("Triple B Rule Decree")
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
The march to BiB2 continues and the future of XPW Remixed comes closer into focus… on tonight’s very special episode, new GDT Inc partners B&B&B
(“Triple B”) Enterprises dress to impress with their vision of XPW Remixed’s future… also in groundbreaking territorial news LOU THESZ has
accomplished something no other athlete in company history could when he legitimized the XPW championship into a world title… Thesz’ long time goal
has been to be known as a “fighting champion”, and that if that means defending his title outside traditional territory limits - then so be it… this
promises to be a VERY hot summer for XPW Remixed… and it all begins (again) at “Baptized in Blood 2”!
Show starts with an immediate interruption from Samoa Joe… and he’s PISSED… mean, foul-mouthed, shouting promo referencing his (BARELY) loss to
Sammartino @ “Scene of the Crime”… score tied, Joe wants to finish it RIGHT NOW! He can beat Bruno, he can make him tap… and he can make the Italian
Strongman BLEED too!!!
** Best of 7 Series (Match #5) **
SAMOA JOE versus BRUNO SAMMARTINO ("First Blood Match"
[color=gold]Sammartino charges the ring and goes after Samoa Joe right away… but Joe bails to regroup! Big boos for that move, but he’s smirking and
making Bruno’s blood boil even further… so Bruno starts posing and taunting, driving the crowd into a frenzy and infuriating Joe! Joe rolls into the
ring, misses a charge and eats a clothesline in return! A brawl begins to ensue… Joe with big right hands to Bruno in the corner... Samoa Joe starts
choking Sammartino with his boot… then he starts biting the forehead of Bruno, trying to draw blood… But Bruno counters with a double leg takedown
and some ground-and-pound (specifically the point of his elbow, trying to split Joe open)… They scramble on the mat, both men spring to their feet -
and Joe hits a wicked flying shoulder tackle that sends Bruno flying to the outside against the ring barricade…. Samoa Joe is so pissed he executes a
WILD suicide plancha right over the top rope to the floor on Bruno! “XPW! XPW!” chants for that… Samoa Joe sends Bruno hard into the steel steps...
The crowd starts a loud “BRUUUUNOOOO!” chant, but Samoa Joe just smiles and raises his arms in the air… Samoa Joe with a suplex on Sammartino over
the end of the entrance ramp… Joe tries to open up Bruno by dragging his head across the ring barricade… but Bruno fights back! Backdrops Joe over
the guard rail into the crowd! Both men down… commercial break.
Back from commercial - Samoa Joe grabs a trash can from nearby and bashes Bruno with it… he throws the can inside the ring and rolls Bruno back in
after… Samoa Joe with a belly-to-belly suplex on Sammartino… Samoa Joe wedges the trash can in the corner between the top and middle turnbuckle
pad... as Bruno is struggling to his feet, Samoa Joe floors him again with a big spinebuster… but Bruno HANGS on and locks in another arm/triangle
choke! Same hold Joe tapped out to on the PPV! But this time, Bruno grabs a nearby trash can lid and WHACKS Joe repeatedly on the top of the head as
he holds him in place! Now Bruno with right hands to Samoa Joe in the corner… but Joe reverses an Irish Whip (shout out Danno O’Mahoney!) and
Sammartino crashes hard into the trash can wedged in the corner… Samoa Joe with a spike DDT on Bruno… Sammartino seems limp, but counters a
powerbomb attempt by Samoa Joe with a backdrop… then he picks up a trash can lid and hurls it like a Frisbee right at Joe’s FACE! BLANG!! The
referee checks to see if Samoa Joe was busted open, but no blood yet… Bruno goes to scoop Joe off the mat but gets lowblowed! OOOOOOH! Roaring
elbow from Joe puts Bruno back in the corner, where he slumps into sitting position… Joe wedges a chair over Bruno’s face in between the buckles –
takes a running start – and BLASTS him with a running dropkick! BLAM! Bruno is busted open! Ref calls for the bell! Joe attacks Bruno after the
mat, opens the cut wider, before smearing Sammartino’s blood over his chest in a sign of barbaric victory… Joe holds his arms aloft with an evil
glare in his eyes as the crowd serenades him with boos… blood is streaming down Bruno’s face now…
B&B&B Enterprises enter the building and are warmly received… Ed “Strangler” Lewis (President of XPW) assures them the contracts should be
finalized by tonight… in the meantime, enjoy your stay as booker and illustrate the vision you have for XPW Remixed in the future… Suddenly - Jon
Moxley saunters into the scene to break up the pleasant repartee… similar to his altercation with Foley at WM Axcess, Moxley gets uncomfortably in
the space of Bowser, Boggs & Beane - uttering obscure threats under their breath - all with a sarcastic, evil smirk upon his face… Paul Bowser says
Triple B has some great ideas for tonight‘s show - and since this is the age of the “Big Three” (GDT Inc, B&B&B, KG/Pierce/Allen, Bosh/LBJ/Wade, etc…)
Triple B Enterprises is announcing a star-studded 6 man tag team main event match… three guys who really need their comeuppance (Jon Moxley, Jinder
Mahal & Hakushi Kuro) will be teaming up to go against the “Big Three” of XPW Remixed…
”The Celtic Warrior” SHEAMUS!
XPW Boston champion JOHN CENA!
And XPW WORLD Champion LOU THESZ!
A virtual fantasy all-star team! Brought to you for the one and only time by B&B&B Enterprises! 6-man tag team main event TONIGHT!
** CUT **
Live footage of hype for the “Road to BiB2” tour, including a Make-a-Wish appearance from XPW Remixed superstar Haystacks Calhoun – but something
goes horrifyingly wrong, when the autograph signing is interrupted by a rapid banging at the auditorium door… it is none other than the
child-molesting (inferred by New Jack) sado-masochist Pogo the Clown with a muthaphuckkin fire axe chopping the door down! Needless to say, children
and adults scatter… a stunned (yet resolute) Haystacks Calhoun is left behind – he knocks over the autograph table and stands ready with a pitchfork
in his hands! Amidst a sea of screams and fleeing children, the camera is knocked askew into static! It goes without saying this terrible incident
nearly brought a lawsuit, and XPW Remixed is no longer allowed to make Make-a-Wish donations!
** CUT TO COMMERCIAL **
Messiah gets his TV entrance (big boos)… explains his weird, bizarre reasons for crucifying Mondo and throwing his lot in with the “Savior of
Xtreme”… introduces John Zandig who gets HUGE boos from the West Coast audience… crazy promo from Zandig completely disparaging the West Coast,
“Sick” Nick Mondo & XPW Original (Zandig claims HE was the guy who put Rob Black in jail on smut charges)… he’s here in XPW Remixed to make a
SACRIFICE! He says he’s the toughest, scariest, most Xtreme SOB in the entire industry… but this bold, brazen statement draws the theme song of…
SAMI CALLIHAN? “The New Horror” enters the arena alongside his loyal foot soldiers Thumbtack Jack & Madman Pondo…
JOHN ZANDIG versus THUMBTACK JACK (Xtreme Rulez)
Sami Callihan meets Zandig head-to-head on the mic and carries the mantle of “Xtreme” upon himself - the “Anti-Christ of Fantasy Wrestling!” Sami
Callihan - he offers up his loyal subject Thumbtack Jack into competition… but as we are quick to see - it is a SACRIFICE! Sami Callihan has
literally (had Gorilla Monsoon would say) thrown Thumbtack Jack to the wolves here, as the much bigger, stiff, don’t-give-a-fuck John Zandig bodies
Thumbtack Jack with an assortment of punishing, glass-assisted suplexes, slams and piledrivers… in the matches dramatic conclusion, Sami Callihan &
Madman Pondo come face-to-face with Zandig & Messiah (over Thumbtack Jack’s broken, bloody body)… and grin?!? The maniacs embrace in an act of mutual
self accord - Sami Callihan presents the ceremonial cinder block - and Thumbtack Jack is driven mercilessly into it with a bone-crunching tiger
driver… the result is academic… the Savior of Xtreme & the “Anti-Christ of Fantasy Wrestling”… CZW! BIG TIME boos from the West Coast audience…
anything associated with the East Coast, particularly this very-specific timeline enemy (CZW Original), is met with Xtreme derision from the rowdy
Winner: JOHN ZANDIG
Postmatch, Sami Callihan gets the show-stealing mic finale where he predicts an apocalypse and declares the new alliance... Xtreme rises in the
East... starting at "Baptized in Blood" when CZWO run the Tournament of Death!!! Sami Callihan, John Zandig & MESSIAH have all secured
entry! CZWO owns the ToD (Tournament of Death) and are taking it back to the East Coast by any means necessary!!
The audience heat is at near-white hot level when suddenly - to break the tension - Papa Roach’s “Last Resort”! FINALLY! “Sick” Nick Mondo in the
house! CZWO prep for action in the middle of the ring, but where is he?? He enters through the surging crowd, strapped like an urban Rambo - or
maybe Casey from the TMNT… he answers CZWO on the mic - addresses Messiah’s crooked win over him at “Scene of the Crime” (when a debuting Zandig
interfered) and concludes - if they want it, they got it! And the crowd gets it too, cheering wildly as Mondo bursts into action with an assortment
of Xtreme weaponry including what appears to be a chainsaw of some kind, and a muthaphuckkin weed whacker! Death becomes you as Mondo finally snaps
and returns to what made him “Sick”… Death match ninjitsu - combined with the element of surprise and an Xtreme cache of weaponry - combines to drive
all 4 of the evil goons from the ring, with Madman Pondo suffering defensive weed whacker slices to the forearms and Zandig powering through a
fluorescent glass tube assault - but falling victim to a swing from Mondo’s electric handsaw that he barely deflects with a steel chair at the last
moment (setting off a brief blast of sparks) before diving to the floor for safety… Thumbtack Jack has dragged himself to his feet to stand beside
Mondo against the new dark alliance... CZWO on the retreat… Mondo on the mic to close - he is the 4th man in ToD! Win or die! And with that brazen
statement, "Sick" Nick Mondo suddenly scoops Thumbtack Jack into a Lifecutter finisher (through a bundle of glass tubes) to a huge pop!
Shades of a Stone Cold Stunner circa 1997, Mondo has embraced Xtreme and will use it to drive back the evil invaders!!!
"Sick" Nick Mondo!
Brief backstage business skit with Mister Mondt and Ed Lewis... XPW VP Toots Mondt has convinced President Lewis to wait and hear the particulars
on this new bid before signing off on the contracts... the rival buyer's agent will be here later tonight and is eager to meet with GDT Inc to
discuss this... Ed Lewis gives the mystery buyer until the end of the night, but if they don't show - B&B&B get the contract tonight... Ed
Lewis exits stage left, and Toots Mondt reaches for his cellphone as we fade out...
** CUT TO RING **
BILLY GUNN versus ALEX RILEY (w/ Missy Hyatt)
Diamond Dynasty continue to make a spectacle of themselves – in the spoiled, multi-million dollar Varsity-athlete variety… they are justly OUTRAGED
over Road Dogg stealing $25k from them (see XPW TV Episode #42) and react accordingly… in-ring promo with stick work from all 3 men that segues into
a New Age Outlaws crowd-pleasing rebuttal and the following “on consignment” challenges… Alex Riley is eager to go first – to continuously prove his
worth to his teammates (being the naturally-smaller man) and to defend the “honor” of his girlfriend Missy Hyatt (1990) who didn’t take too kindly to
getting MOONED by “Mr Ass” Billy Gunn (or did she??) Good, brisk TV match with just enough “pro wrestling” extra curricular’s to keep it moving…
Billy Gunn continues to project that undeniable aura of potential that he exuded in the late 90s (leading to countless singles pushes, IC title reigns
and a KotR victory amongst other things) that is expertly contrasted by the 2010’s version of the same wrestling archetype – Alex Riley… supremely
athletic, charismatic (arguably) and cocky – both Gunn & Riley string together a believable match that ends with Gunn out-leaping Riley, landing a
fameasser, and finishing with another full moon to Hyatt to boot. New Age Outlaws out the gate strong…
Winner: BILLY GUNN
** MATCH SEGUE **
ROAD DOGG versus MATT MORGAN (w/ Buddy Rogers)
… but aside from another crowd-pleasing sing along hosted by MC Road Dogg on the mic, that’s where the NAO run ends tonight… in competition, Road
Dogg is met head-on by the “Blueprint” Matt Morgan… tearing his own suit off eagerly piece by piece to begin the fight, Morgan is like a buzzsaw
cutting through the Dogg with high-impact power moves… Carbon Footprint running boot ends things emphatically for Morgan – with the OG “Nature Boy”
Buddy Rogers himself happily buzzing about in victory, puffing his cigar…
Winner: “BLUEPRINT” MATT MORGAN
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Words from conterfeit XPW champion Shane Douglas & Lizzy Borden... despite his victory at War Game (which he brags about incessantly) he is still
PISSED! Nobody is giving him the credit he deserves! This whole B&B&B thing is a JOKE! They won't give Douglas & Borden the time of the day??
Then Shane Douglas is going to do something to make sure EVERYBODY takes notice of him - and his REAL world championship!!
More horror-movie sounds -another attack is imminent; drawing cameras around a backstage corner in the locker room area… there at the far end of the
hall, woman & backstage personnel flee past the camera in terror!… a large masked man can be seen exiting the far locker room on the left, with a
crowbar in his hands… he is bare-chested with a black leather mask and leather suit like a dominator – something straight out of a Nicholas Gage 8MM
movie or snuff film… cameras catch but a shaky-cam, blurry glimpse of him (like Bigfoot) before he’s gone… cameras run down to catch the aftermath,
pan into the (now destroyed) locker room – and find two men hopelessly laid out – THE GRAND WIZARD & KEN PATERA! The Olympic strongman and his
manager have been laid to dust, and the locker room wreckage (blood smeared) around them indicates the huge struggle that preceded it… regardless, TGW
& Patera are OUT… call the paramedics…
** CUT TO COMMERCIAL **
** Triple B Rule Decree #1 **
Backstage skit with XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt straining to be nice and put on a fake business-man smile for new potential partner Carl
Beane… he welcomes the famed Red Sox commentator into the fold, and introduces the man Mister Mondt was just speaking with – world renowned manager
of champions “Wild” Red Berry… gracious introductions abound… they briefly discuss the mysterious attack upon TGW & Patera earlier (Berry adamantly
DENIES involvement) and notify the viewer they were scheduled opponents for Berry’s men tonight, but now are left without an opponent (which is fine
with them)… but when Berry goes over the top with his long-winded, wordy, nerdy butt-kissing soliloquy, Carl Beane has had enough… the state of XPW
Remixed’s tag team division is atrocious (Mondt’s face drops) and Beane blames Berry’s managerial antics and grip upon the belts… he’s smothering all
the competition in the division… it’s a shame his original opponents can’t compete tonight, but that doesn’t mean they get the night off… in his
classic Red Sox homerun delivery, he announces a homerun opponent for Berry’s NEW Twin Towers TONIGHT! Right now! Berry is suddenly at a loss of
words and storms off, Beane winks at a stoic Mister Mondt, and the VP just stares bullet holes through him…
** CUT TO RING **
MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS
NEW TWIN TOWERS w/ Wild Red Berry
Wild Red Berry starts segment in the ring, complete indignant, and unleashes a great heel promo – drives the fans (and his tag team stable behind him)
into a frenzy with his words… Bam Bam Bigelow & Bull Ramos as a team are reminiscent of a more hardcore version of the original Million Dollar
Corporation (feat. Bam Bam & Tatanka), with a twist of mid-90s ECW attitude (flipping off the fans and nearly inciting a riot)… his tag team champion
Fabulous Kangaroos get time to put themselves over on the mic, before settling into guest commentary duty alongside Solie & Stiriker (where their
obnoxious Australian accent, and fake love for all things Americana shines beautifully)… thankfully, the managers rant is answered by machine gun
fire – enter ALEX SHELLEY & CHRIS SABIN! They don’t even give the bad guys time to get their bearings… lighting fast synchronization, deadly striking
barrages, and creative double team moves astound the fans and dazzle the NEW Twin Towers! Bam Bam runs into Berry, knocking him off the apron! Bam
Bam & Ramos run into each other! Double missile dropkick ejects Bam Bam! Series of double-team moves drops Ramos to his knees where the huge man
becomes pickings for a concussive series of match-ending strikes! 1!.. 2!.. 3! The Guns earn the victory and run into the crowds embrace to avoid
the angry leviathans… with the FabKangs in the ring helping Berry regroup, the Guns get a mic to retort – show stealing sassiness from both that
concludes with a challenge and a dare for the Tag team titles @ “BiB2”! The fans want! Carl Beane makes his final cameo to approve the call! Fans
go wild! Berry goes crazy! It’s going down at “BiB2”!!
[color=gold]XPW Remixed commissioner “Real Deal” Damien Steele enters in exaggerated-injury mode; remains of his PPV battle @ “Scene of the Crime”
(where he was taped to a table by Sid and balcony dived by New Jack)… he has Jasmin St Claire & a wave of riot-gear ready security with him…
obnoxious woe is me promo draws heat, he refreshes us on his attack, and calls out Sid for his transgressions at the PPV… crowd chants his name and
he arrives… SID… with KotDM title hanging in his hand like one would carry a dead cat…
Steele (mic in one hand, crutch in the other) goes off on an egotistical power trip rant and totally & legally denies Sid his KotDM “victory” @ “Scene
of the Crime”… Damien Steele is demanding the title BACK – and as XPW Remixed commissioner, if Sid lays a hand on him he will be FIRED! Steele calls
himself the "king of the jungle"... Slow burn hesitation from Sid, ratcheting up the crowd heat… he stares at the KotDM belt - hands it
over to Steele (HUGE boos) and solemnly walks out of the building... Steele of course, is beside himself with glee (and drunk with power) when
suddenly – we are interrupted by Triple B Enterprises theme song! Enter legendary promoter (making his Territory Wars debut) PAUL BOWSER!
** “Triple B Rule Decree #2 **
XPW Remixed is an absolute zoo – madness… the inmates run the asylum, and Paul Bowser thinks the company needs more order to the anarchy in order to
succeed… this order starts all the way at the top, in upper management… therefore as Paul Bowsers order of business tonight he is officially VACATING
the KotDM title (giving it the props it earned with men like Nick Gage defended it)… now, the winner of the prestigious ToD at BiB2 not only earns
that blood-stained honor – he will also be crowned new KotDM champion! A true fighting champion! Crowd loves that! Steele hates it! He duels
Bowser on the mic, arrogantly and obnoxiously… but Bowser is ready with an easy smile and a final proclamation… fantasy wrestling is driven by the
fans – and after a brief call and response routine with the live crowd (in which Bowser’s questions are cheered and Steele’s desperate rebuttals are
soundly booed) Paul Bowser is given the fan incentive to book a PPV competition for Damien Steele… a match in which the office of XPW Remixed
Commissioner will be on the line… Paul Bowser (and the fans) choice for Steele’s opponent, and next potential Commissioner? A man with knowledge,
integrity and experience… how about (cue “Olympus” by Raekwon)…
”THE SOLID MAN” WILLIAM MULDOON!!
Steele is outraged! Fans rejoice! Muldoon strides out upon the entrance ramp to shake Bowsers hand and pose for the crowd! Final parting shot
from Muldoon to Steele on the mic! There’s gonna be a NEW sheriff in town, post BiB2! And his name is the “Solid Man”! CHEERS!
Sick video recap of the entire (Real) Kings of Wrestling rise - reign with Jessica Darlin - reaching iconic status in fantasy wrestling - and finally,
the dissension (and losing streak) as of late… throughout the video highlight there is an undercurrent of redemption, promising greater things on the
horizon should the stars realign correctly… in-arena, “Universal Hearthrob” Austin Idol enters first… he addresses the dissension on the mic, says
he told Jessica to stay home because this is man business, and his calling out his tag team partner Phil “Gunner” Shatter to iron out their
differences right now… soon enough Phil “Gunner” Shatter gets his entrance, looking more intense than usual… Idol gives him the pep talk on the mic,
but it’s dotted with enough egotistical self-delusion from Idol that it comes off very transparent and condescending (and humorous, in a “Rocky Maivia
in the NOD” kind of way)… Gunner gets a few moments on the mic to soak it all in and return the self-indulgent “gratitude” to his partner Austin
Idol… all is good in the ranks… but just like Rockers on the Barber Shop something is clearly amiss - and with Austin Idol’s heads in the clouds,
grinning and preening for the audiences - Gunner ends the (Real) Kings forever… blind shot from the rear! Beat down on Idol from Gunner! F5 onto a
steel chair! Tear up the ring mats up outside, exposing concrete! But before Gunner can DDT his former partner’s skull into the cement - Jessica
Darlin runs out! She’s pleading and begging with Gunner to lay off… and he does, dropping Idol’s unconscious body to approach Darlin… where he GRABS
her by her hair - screams and SPITS in her face - before SHOVING her down flat on her ass! She’s nearly in tears! Gunner bursts into sick laughter!
And finishes the job on Austin Idol! SPIKE DDT ON THE CONCRETE FLOOR! Austin Idol is out! Stretcher job for him, as security keeps Gunner away… he
soaks up his now clearly-defined heel heat as Jessica Darlin weeps and sobs dramatically…
FOCUS magnate David Otunga (Lawyer suit-style) and the beautiful GG have stopped Logan Boggs in the hallway for conversation… Otunga is of course
bigging himself up, mentioning TV champion Gorgeous George multiple times and embracing his inner relationship with GDT Inc… he can of course counsel
Logan Boggs, and has a litany of ratings and TV based stats to back FOCUS prime selling… but Boggs wants nothing to do with it… he yawns off Otunga’s
attempts to “bore” him, and discusses his own ideas of “branding” in fantasy wrestling… and with that makes a decree… because everybody is supposedly
so eager to see Otunga & FOCUS, then tonight – let ‘em have it… Otunga & Gorgeous George in a tag match – against RUCKUS & MIL MASCARAS! And oh yeah
– whoever wins the fall for that team will become the NEW XPW TELEVISION CHAMPION! (cheeeers!!!) With that decree, Logan Boggs removes a baseball hat
from his back pocket – slaps it on his head – and flaunts the logo in Otunga’s stunned, annoyed face – BLKOUT! Focus on THAT, brother! Logan Boggs
struts out of the scene, leaving Otunga shaking his head in disgust and amazement… then Gorgeous George stomps into the scene (loud Hawaiin shirt and
sunglasses), revealing he was just hiding behind the potting plant making sure Otunga put him over enough in the conversation, and he’s pissed! They
humorously jaw amongst themselves in mock heelish indignation as cameras fade out.
David Otunga & Gorgeous George vs Ruckus & Mil Mascaras!
If Ruckus or Mascaras win the bout they become new XPW TV Champion!
** CUT TO COMMERCIAL **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Ruckus is smoking backstage in the locker room when he's approached by Sabian & Michael Tarver... they have some words of
"congratulations" for him (being the "chosen" one and "favorite house n****" amongst other things) that are borderline
sarcastic and insulting... are Sabian & Tarver jealous of Ruckus?? Regardless, he just laughs them off good-naturedly - accepts their well wishes -
and exits to ready for his match... Sabian & Tarver just exchange glances and watch him go silently... secretly they brood...
** CUT TO RING **
** XPW Television Championship**
DAVID OTUNGA & GORGEOUS GEORGE (w/ GG)
RUCKUS & MIL MASCARAS
Tag team gold - with the shenanigans and antics of Gorgeous George & Otunga being expertly contrasted by the serious skill of Ruckus & Mil… the FOCUS
team is no match for the high-flying generational one-time team of Mascaras & Ruck, but soon individual greed and glory sets in - and the true weight
of the match becomes apparent… Ruckus & Mascaras were willing to work together - but only one can win… so in the end, the dissension between Ruckus
& Mil becomes too much - a miscommunication ensues - and Gorgeous George gets a roll-up (with a hand on the trunks) on Ruckus! Unbelievable!
Gorgeous George & Otunga maintain focus!! Meanwhile Ruckus & Mascaras get into a shoving and shouting match after the bell that requires referees and
security to seperate.
Winner (and STILL XPW Television champion): GORGEOUS GEORGE
Lou Thesz is being interviewed about his newly-recognized World Title status, and he gives a stern, professional promo on the value and importance of
his training and ideals - and how he vows to be a fighting champion... but this statement brings his tag team partner (for the evening) SHEAMUS into
the picture! The smirking, swaggering Sheamus interjects with some good 'ol Irish tales that prove in a metaphorical way that Sheamus is eager
to test Thesz' "fighting champion" words out personally... but THIS subliminal challenge draws another man onto the scene - XPW
Boston champion JOHN CENA! He puts over Thesz accomplishment, but also reiterates the hell he suffered through for the sake of the XPW Boston title -
and the "spirit of competition"... a tense 3 way standoff between all three men ensues, before Sheamus jovially breaks the tension - and
Thesz gets everybody focused on the immediate task at hand (the 6 man tag tonight)... but the point is clear - everybody is gunning for the XPW WORLD
** CUT TO RING **
** “Baptized in Blood Multi-Tag **
LOU THESZ, JOHN CENA & SHEAMUS
JINDER MAHAL, HAKUSHI KURO & JON MOXLEY
Spans two commercial breaks... Thesz/Cena/Sheamus are a legendary union and are treated as such on commentary by Solie & Striker... the bad guys
draw massive heat... an already (and still) wounded Cena (see "Scene of the Crime") plays face in peril for the most part, while the bad guys
dissect him and taunt the others.. Sheamus & Thesz argue a little over the hot tag, and the minor dissension allows Jon Moxley to take over on the
Irishman... a donnybrook breaks out in the end that becomes increasingly hard to control... a referee accidentally gets Brogue kicked by Sheamus!
Now Moxley has broken out the steel chairs! All hell is breaking loose! The bell begins to toll frantically, indicating a no-finish. Refs &
officials storm the ring to no avail! Moxley takes them out with a chair! Lou Thesz & Sheamus are left alone in the ring arguing viciously amongst
each other! Neither will back down from the other! But when Jinder Mahal tries to creep up on them with a chair, they both unite to destroy him with
double-teams and eject him over the top rope! Then they continue to argue, escalating to pushes and shoves! Sheamus is pointing at the belt Thesz is
holding in his face! Sheamus wants the XPW World title!
Winners: NONE (no finish)
Suddenly - SHANE DOUGLAS makes the run-in! He uses his counterfeit XPW title to BLAST John Cena in the head with, opening up a torrent of blood!
Shane Douglas stomps down Cena while his manager Lizzy Borden cheers approvingly! Doulgas has made his statement - layed out Cena - and then smeared
the champs blood along the XPW Title, giving it a gory golden faceplate! Shane Douglas rises up over Cena with the bloody belt!
** CUT BACKSTAGE **
Ed Lewis backstage with B&B&B celebrating the great episode... they are about to pass off the paperwork, when Toots Mondt finally enters the room
with a dour expression on his face... the mystery buyers agent has arrived... enter...
The evil conman has returned from exile! But as Ed Lewis is quick to remind him, he was BANNED from XPW Remixed! Therefore he can no longer
legally stake any claim to business affairs! BUT Jack Pfefer has a legal retort (imagine a sleazy, NY Jim Cornette meets Paul Heyman kind of business
man)... he is only the front man and advisor to the new potential buyers - NOT an owner - therefore can continue to advise the new owners without
Well, this is quite a conundrum... both potential buyers (B&B&B and now Pfefer's org) have put together quite the package... and this being
fantasy pro wrestling, there really is only one solution - and Paul Bowser offers it up... athletic competition. In the spirit of competition allow
B&B&B to put together a team of 5 to combat the other buyers team of 5... at "BiB2"... a 10-man Survivor Series match... winning team
gets the right to purchase the 3rd stake in GDT Inc (parent company of XPW Remixed)! Ed Lewis the sportsman loves this idea... Toots Mondt the
gambler loves this idea as well... and so does Jack Pfefer as well, but he has one final caveat...
Since Ed Lewis has agreed to give B&B&B operating and booking powers for one night (as a sign of good business faith) - then Jack Pfefer's
organization is demanding the same courtesy... next week on XPW TV Jack Pfefer reveals his mystery buyer and they will receive full booking autonomy
over the show... Mister Mondt agrees this is only fair, and so it's set... meanwhile (Bowser, Boggs & Beane shake everybody's hand) may
the best team win at "BiB2"! Pfefer & Mondt give each other a secret wink on the sly...

** BREAKING NEWS ** (New #1 Contender crowned after XPW TV Episode #44 went off the air!)
XPW president Ed Lewis opens up dark match segment – praises B&B&B’s involvement tonight – hypes Pfefer’s new management group next week – and
makes his final proclamation for the night… #1 contenders battle royal! Right now!
** BATTLE ROYAL **
Lou Thesz on commentary… Announcement sparks a firestorm of action – Immediately in the ring Jon Moxley blindsides Sheamus and takes over… he’s
quickly joined by Jinder Mahal & Hakushi, who double-team Sheamus (while Lou Thesz is led from the ring by security & referees)… just then Buddy
Rogers appears on the entrance ramp with Matt Morgan – the Blueprint shrugs off his entrance cape and bolts to the ring – he’s quickly followed by
David Otunga (who shakes Ed Lewis hand graciously on the stage before bolting into action)… everybody is beating up on Sheamus, about to toss him
from the ring – when a bloody CENA finally interjects! House-clearing brawl from Cena, who is driven into a frenzy! Suddenly he’s joined
side-by-side with French Angel! And Human Tornado!
Jon Moxley is eliminated! Jinder Mahal is eliminated! Hakushi Kuro is eliminated! Just then… Douglas sneaks up on Cena from the rear again! John
Cena is eliminated (at the hands of Shane Douglas)! Matt Morgan kicks the head off of Human Tornado, eliminating him! But French Angel tosses the
Blueprint! Rogers is furious as Sammi Lane claps for her man! We have our Final 4!
Shane Douglas… Sheamus… David Otunga… French Angel…
But just as quickly, Shane Douglas eliminates the Angel (to great boos)… Shane comes to a quick, heelish agreement with Focus magnate David Otunga to
double-team Sheamus into oblivion… and it works too, until Cena – in a last bit of blood-stained fury – reenters the ring, clobbers Otunga, and hits
an FUAA to Shane Douglas in the center of the ring! “U Can’t See Me!” hand gesture for Shane on Cena’s way out makes a very big statement! Sheamus
recuperates and BROGUE KICKS Shane Douglas out of the ring! Brief exchange with Otunga – counter – and hiiiiiiiigh back body drop! Otunga’s body
sails over the top rope to the arena floor! Sheamus has done it! He’s the new #1 Contender! Sheamus and Lou Thesz have the big in-ring stare down
to end the segment – but no handshake of mutual respect here! They’re jawing furiously, bumping chest to chest and referees and security are forced
to intervene! They’re still in each other’s faces as the crowd chants “LET THEM FIGHT! LET THEM FIGHT!” Meanwhile, Ed Lewis smirks and winks into
the camera as we fade out…
Winner (and #1 Contender): SHEAMUS 2012
** CUT TO ONLINE INTRO **
Cut to the in-studio hosts for the show:
SAMMI LANE & FRENCH ANGEL
Effervescent and bubbly intro by Sammi Lane… Big ups to Sheamus (2012), the new #1 contender... she and her boy French Angel Maurice Tillet
appreciate the good look in appearing in a #1 Contenders Battle Royal – but while they may have fallen short that, they will not rest until gold is
strapped around their waist! Angel would make a beautiful TV champion, an inspiring Boston champion and a tremendous XPW WORLD champion! But one
belt Sammi Lane wants NOOOOO part of right now is the XPW Woman’s title… champion Wendi Richter has managed to infuse the title with a new level of
legitimacy – but faces perhaps her gravest challenge just on the horizon… keep tuned for more on that. PLUS! The future of XPW Remixed will be
decided @ “BiB2” when the 3rd stake in GDT Inc (parent company of XPW Remixed) is the grand prize in a 5-on-5 Survivor Series elimination match! The
true spirit of fantasy wrestling continues to shine brightly in XPW Remixed – but who will be the one to shape it’s destiny? Is it a return to the
scientific glory days of hard-nosed COMPETITION, as championed by B&B&B Enterprises?? Or will XPW Remixed finally cross the line of good tastes and
boundaries for good, if Pfefer’s new “Black Army” is to win? And which way do XPW President Ed Lewis & VP Toots Mondt sway within this decision??
Tune in as teams for this very special attraction match continue to take shape TONIGHT!
Fantasy wrestling draws big time entertainment bucks… if you have a combination package that’s part Vaudeville/live theater/X-Games/Big Fight
Night/circus/Rock Concert you can tap into multiple revenue streams at the same time… XPW Remixed is the biggest traveling live variety show in
fantasy wrestling today… a true spectacle… exposure to the brand comes exclusively on XPW TV Channel 13 (a local Los Angeles affiliate)… parts of
that broadcast and XPW Online are available worldwide on the internet for free… in a constant effort to expand business (particularly in the East,
which seems to be a sticking point for Lewis & Mondt) GDT Inc took the XPW Remixed show on tour all along the East coast… it drew up incredible costs
far beyond their initial investment scope… so they were forced to scale back, or “retreat” so to speak… they moved (and kept) operations out west –
dropped multiple contracts – instituted a series of “Loser Leaves XPW Remixed” matches in their Spring Cleaning initiative… and ousted their 3rd
partner in their original arrangement (The Grand Wizard)… now they sit on the hottest property in the Territory Wars, and are constantly looking to
expand – hence their search for a 3rd partner…
Package deals are part of corporate SOP… that’s why it wasn’t Eric Bischoff attempting to buy WCW, it was Fusient Media… in XPW Remixed canon,
“B&B&B Enterprises” represents that kind of union… a collection of individual superpowers who collectively pooled their resources to offer a can’t
beat prospect for GDT Inc… from Triple B - Boston area promoter Paul Bowser offers a valuable cache of East coast connects, including arenas,
buildings, TV channels and North East superstars… Logan Boggs offers much of the same, plus Territory Wars longevity… Boston Red Sox voice Carl
Beane brings legitimacy, big-league seasoning and a championship aura… all told, they’ve put together a winning bid that immediately got the
attention of XPW President Ed “Strangler” Lewis – who invited them into the fold… but his business partner Joseph “Toots” Mondt didn’t agree with
For reasons best left undisclosed at this time, Toots Mondt does not see eye-to-eye with Triple B’s business philosophy and desperately looked for
another competitive bidder… he seems to have found one at the last moment (by dredging the sludgy grime of Fantasy Wrestling’s underbelly for the
scuzziest piece of pond scum promoter in history) in JACK PFEFER… for contemporary wrestling fans, imagine a sassy fast-mouthed lawyer-boy in the
vein of Paul Heyman, with a very unscrupulous set of business morals… Just like Heyman offered up inner-Industry newsbytes for positive coverage in
the Internet dirt sheets – in his day, Pfefer ratted out inner-sanctum secrets to newspaper writers and journalists in an effort to scar the very
industry that had blackballed him… best believe the resentment Jack Pfefer felt at being ousted in XPW Remixed has festered within his black soul…
now he’s BACK – skirting the letter of the law that got him banned, spearheading a new acquisition company, and promising the GREATEST. RETURN. IN.
WRESTLING. HISTORY. America loves an underdog story, and Jack Pfefer is selling the shit out of it… Who is this investor? What part of wrestling
history does he hold? And where do the funds from this titanic investment come from? All to be revealed on the next Episode of XPW TV…

** Team B&B&B begins… **
Legendary Boston-area promoter Paul Bowser meets up with Mil Mascaras backstage… they greet and exchange pleasantries… Bowser has recently
assigned Olympia head coach (and Mascaras training partner) William Muldoon to a match for the XPW Commissionership at “BiB2”… and would like to offer
Mil Mascaras a spot on Team B&B&B at the same PPV! This way - B&B&B Enterprises will beat Pfefer's camp @ the PPV and earn a company stake in
XPW Remixed! Mil Mascaras is honored by the invitation and graciously accepts… the masked Mexican superstar whole-heartedly endorses B&B&B
Enterprises brand of sportsmanship and competition! Mil Mascaras fights for B&B&B Enterprises at “BiB2”!
Jinder Mahal has stormed backstage after his Battle royal loss, and is caught on camera having a conniption… he blames politics and crooked
promoters, and even throttles a harmless TV intern who just happened to be standing nearby… really mean and bullying, Mahal is outraged because he’s
so privileged he can’t fathom loss… he’s smacking around this little intern – when suddenly, a great bellow echoes through the corridors – “MAHAL!!”
Cameras swing to the far end of the corridor, where we see GREAT GAMA returning to action! With great anger he seeks vengeance upon the one who
betrayed him! Gama begins chasing after a clearly spooked Mahal – who quickly slams a corridor door on the charging Gama and flees! But the
legendary strongman cannot be denied! Great Gama BURTS through the door like a cannonball shot, and continues his pursuit of Mahal! Jinder flees the
building in terror, as Gama knocks over backstage personnel, cameras and tears up video wires in his madd pursuit! Cut to static!!!
FABULOUS KANGAROOS (w/ Wild Red Berry)
Very sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek “pro-Americana” propaganda video by The Fabulous Kangaroos to start the segment… they put themselves over as bastions
of American ideals and athletics – even with their blatant Australian accents and Aussie-themed gear & antics… Part Beverly Bros (1993) / Rougeau
Bros (1989) / Dudley Boyz (1998) – the video segues to their grand in-arena procession… complete with anonymous flag-bearer, Australian & American
flags, XPW Tag Team championship belts, and manager Wild Red Berry… Berry has the mic for a brief in-ring promo where he cuts down B&B&B Enterprises
– puts over his tag champions – and disparages the MCMG (who are getting a title shot @ “BiB2” – see XPW TV Episode #44)… the FabKangs are fighting
champions! Cue theme song and entrance of the Havana Pitbulls, who get a big pop upon their appearance… competitive squash match with the FabKangs
ultimately feasting on the smaller Pitbulls and finishing Rocky Romero with a modified version of the 3D for the pin… postmatch, cameras catch a
glimpse of Ricky Reyes trying to console his tag team partner Rocky Romero, only to be coldly rebuffed and ignored by Rocky who storms backstage…
Fabkangs & Berry pose with the belts… but the Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) turn up on the giant video screen to offer a
closing series of taunts to the FabKangs… dripping with sarcasm and new-school wit, the MCMG slay FabKangs on the mic – big up Detroit (and it’s
“true American ideals”) – and promise championship glory @ “BiB2”!! FabKangs and Berry are irate! Even their dominant victory tonight was
overshadowed by these loud-mouth, wise-ass whippersnappers! Outrage!!
Silly little skit in which big bad scary gangsta JTG completely emasculates PG-13 in front of a crowd of onlookers and backstage personnel... really
humiliating, as JTG holds nothing back and attacks everything from their hick Nashville upbringing, to their mammas... JTG brags about how he's
gonna beat those punk-ass whiteboy wannabe poseurs and flinches like he's gonna strike them -the recoil, but in a flash JC Ice Baby hits JTG in
the back of the head from behind! JTG goes down and PG-13 look at each for a second with an "OH SNAP! What did we just do!?!?" look... but
instead of fleeing, they EMBRACE IT! PG-13 orchestrates a double-team beat down on JTG! They double team their former mentor and toss him about the
backstage area, before finishing with a corny “YO MAMMA” crack as they leave him lying! Cameras happen to catch the tail end of the exchange, and
PG-13 get a few moments to cut a promo…
Sunny is in the locker room complaining to Shad Gaspard about Jun kasai's sickening advances... as she prattles on and on growing more and more
frustrated with every word, she finally annoys Gaspard (who is trying to gear up) enough for him to yell SHUT UP! He rudely disses and dismisses her,
saying he's got BIGGER things to worry about tonight! If she got a problem with XPW Remixed then handle it herself, bitch! Sunny is aghast and
storms out of the locker room... Gaspard just shakes his head and mutters under his breath about "trifling bitches"...

”A Shooters Revenge”
** BACKSTAGE SKIT **
“The Cali Crippler” Ad Santel jumps Mildred Burke from behind backstage! He roughs her up a little but stops just short of full-on assault… instead,
he leaves that part up to Tamina – who assists him in the beat down… Tamina locks in a vicious stretch hold on the cold tile floor, giving Ad Santel
enough time to get in Burke’s face and growl a few ominous threats about “playing with the big dogs”… his message sent, Ad Santel & Tamina leave
Mildred Burke writhing in pain on the floor… announcers make mention of Burke’s stunning (and surprising) triangle choke on Santel @ “Scene of the
Crime” that had him tapping out in desperation…
** CUT TO RING **
SUNNY versus ANNIE SOCIAL (Impromptu Challenge)
Sunny enters… in ring with a mic… calls out Jun Kasai for his disgusting antics and threatens sexual harassment if she’s not compensated properly…
but this instead draws the theme song of ANNIE SOCIAL! The street-wise hood chick from Killadelphia enters in tank top and cargo pants and gives
Sunny hell on the mic… this is “haves vs have-nots”… Sunny doesn’t want any part of a fight but it’s too late! Annie Social takes her down and
we’ve got a CATFIGHT! Annie Social spanks Sunny’s ass (literally) and hits a flying a bulldog to force her from the ring… Annie Social takes in the
cheers, when suddenly – house lights darken dramatically and an ominous theme song begins…
Results are rudimentary – Social doesn’t stand a chance and gets ping-ponged by the much larger Kong… Implant Buster to Annie Social! Another
Implant Buster for Sunny! (who Kong dragged back into the ring by her hair)… here comes former XPW Woman’s champion ALEXXIS NEVAEH for the save! She
tries to fight off Kong to no avail! Kong swallows the smaller Neveah before grounding HER with an awesome Implant Buster! BAM! Awesome Kong has
done it again! But this time, as she taunts and poses in the ring, current champion WENDI RICHTER shows up on the entrance ramp! She stares Kong
down from across the aisle, and holds up her XPW Championship! Kong just eyes her hungrily… is that a twinkle of fear in Richter’s eye??
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE OUTRO **
A panting, smiling (half-naked) Jun Kasai is watching the previous segment on a backstage monitor... he is cheerfully stuffing his face with a banana,
when none other than former mentor (turned bitter blood rival) Atsushi Onita approaches him from the darkness! Onita startles Kasai, before ominously
whispering "You have disgraced Japan... you must be reprogrammed"... Suddenly - two masked men lurch from the shadows and grab Kasai up! They put
a bag over his head, tie him up and drag him from the arena! They slam him in the back of a van and disappear with Onita smiling cruelly as he
watches them speed away! Jun Kasai is tied up in the back of that van!
SABU & DANNY HAVOC vs USO's (w/ Ad Santel) (Tornado Tag Team Match)
Always dangerous Ad Santel has a newfound-level of crowd heat now with his latest woman-beating actions… he enters first for commentary alongside
Solie & Striker… Uso’s get their big siva-tau entrance, but these two are far from savages – they are street-saavy, Hip Hop influenced Cali swag boyz
who carry that personality with them in between the ropes… their opponent tonight is the exact OPPOSITE – from the hardcore capital of Cylinder Iowa
(snicker) comes the whiter-than-white bread-wonder DANNY HAVOC! Wearing a flannel shirt, assortment of visible (trashy) tattoos and carrying a bundle
of fluorescent light tubes slung over his shoulder Danny Havoc is a white trash hero to the uncultured masses… he’s a hardcore answer to the Uso
bros, but their expert tag team chemistry quickly disarms him (after sending him crashing through his OWN bundle of light tubes)… but before they can
finish him off – we get an insane crowd run-in from SABU! He’s just been completely off-the-wall, out of control lately and his latest actions
portray a Wildman unhinged… The madman makes the run-in to take out the Uso’s! Ad Santel is aghast on commentary as Sabu’s carefree recklessness
takes Jimmy Uso right out of the ring! Atomic Arabian facebuster with a steel chair to Jey Uso in the ring! Sabu then propels himself OFF a steel
chair OVER the top rope towards Jimmy Uso! But Ad Santel pulls Jimmy out of the way JUST in time to have Sabu CRASH through a nearby ringside table!
Danny Havoc tries to fight back but once again the Uso’s double-team him into oblivion… stereo top rope splashes from the Uso’s get the pinfall.
Winners: USO BROS
Post match Ad Santel raises his tag team’s arm in victory before leaving the ring quickly (as Sabu is stirring from the table wreckage)… this
leaves Danny Havoc and Sabu to come together in the ring, where Sabu viciously attacks his own tag team partner! Sabu destroys Havoc and finishes
with his somersault legdrop (steel-chair assisted) off the top rope to Havoc’s FACE! Sabu proves he is in indeed homicidal and will take on anybody!

[color=orange]** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt in his office reviewing paperwork when “Real Deal” Damien Steele (current Commissioner) rushes in – he is OUTRAGED
over Paul Bowser’s decision to put the Commissioner office on the line @ “BiB2” (see XPW TV Episode #44)… B&B&B partner Carl Beane is on his way to
the arena RIGHT NOW with the contracted agreement! Mondt lets Steele vent before revealing there are many others who feel the same sense of outrage
against B&B&B Enterprises… for some reason, Ed Lewis (“that old fool”) is blinded by their offer, but Mister Mondt does NOT like their direction…
Mondt is actively looking for ways to make B&B&B Enterprises DROP their offer! He insinuates to Steele that bad things happen when you cross Mister
Mondt (referencing Beane’s snub & tag team diss on XPW TV Episode #44)… Steele takes his word and leaves, meanwhile Mondt gets on his Bluetooth and
starts sending a text…
Phil “Gunner” Shatter takes the ring with a microphone… he’s in stylish street clothes and is greeted by a loud chorus of boos… video recap of
his betrayal, beat down, and concrete-floor spike DDT of former tag team partner Austin Idol… but Shatter shows no remorse for his actions, and
explains his motivations further…
On his origins… PHIL “GUNNER” SHATTER: Going through the Marine Corps boot camp was a big confidence-builder for me… You get screamed at, broken down and
turned into a Marine over 13 weeks. This showed me that if you set your mind to something, you can do it.
His dedication to the cause… PHIL “GUNNER” SHATTER: “It was something I’d wanted to do since I was 5 years old. I also knew I had to give everything to this. There are
times I’ve missed reunions and birthday parties. I’ve had to sacrifice, but my family understood.
His decision to betray Austin Idol and drop his “dead weight”… PHIL “GUNNER” SHATTER: “I think I showed them by driving down that this is what I wanted to do for a living… I’m not complaining. I’m just
happy I got the opportunity (sick grin as he reviews his destruction of Idol)
Because going solo is better than being part of the greatest tag team in fantasy wrestling history… PHIL “GUNNER” SHATTER: The psychology part of pro wrestling is huge… You’ve got to put together a match that tells a story in the ring and
keeps the fans wanting to see it. From being around guys like A.J. (Styles), Ken and Hulk Hogan, I can already see a big difference. These guys have
shared knowledge that I couldn’t get in six or seven months with the independent (companies), Austin Idol & that dumb tramp Jessica Darlin!
This draws the theme song of Jessica Darlin! Valet to the former (Real) Kings of Wrestling, she comes down to the ring very sad and angry… she
attempts to plead with Gunner not to break up the dream team… but he just laughs – pie faces her right on her ASS in the ring – SPITS on her (again!)
and curses her out! He leaves her weeping on the ring mat as he proudly strides up the entrance ramp (smirk on his face) and raises his arms to the
PHIL “GUNNER” SHATTER: The hard work is paying off… I’m living my dream!!
XPW Remixed (counterfeit) champion Shane Douglas is with his belt and Lizzy Borden out on the streets of BOSTON running a series of bitter (yet
utterly hilarious) sketches against John Cena – scenes in which Douglas & Borden are purportedly “looking” for John on the “mean streets” of Boston
but keep winding up in a series of decidedly “un-hardcore” locales… John Cena is never found, and Douglas builds a case about the “face of mainstream
wrestling” DUCKING the one true champion; Shane Douglas…
SHANE DOUGLAS: "'The Franchise' is that guy that never had an off switch. Whatever pops into his head, he says. Whatever he
wants to do, he does. Some people would call that psychotic with a guy that can go out and murder someone and explain why it was the right thing to
do. To me, that character had very compelling possibilities for television. The first guy that ever came out and used the f-bomb on television. It
just oozed through that this guy was -- in his mind -- the most important thing walking on the planet. When that character stepped on camera and had
this beautiful valet with him (flaunts Lizzy Borden beside him), and you see him throwing guys down with broken necks and throwing the NWA
title down -- there was nothing he wouldn't do. That's compelling to watch. It's a train wreck. You're waiting to see what
he's going to do next....
** CUT **
** BLACK ARMY REDUX **
Phone interview with Jack Pfefer is who absolutely giddy to be back… it’s clear he holds all kinds of grudges and is looking to thoroughly exact
his revenge… this started the DAY he was let back in the door (see XPW TV Episode #44)… just who exactly was that mystery man who laid waste to TGW
& Ken Patera in the locker room??.. why, none other than Jack Pfefer-hired gun, the mysterious SNUFF! This man-monster comes straight from the
bowels of fantasy wrestling HELL and is the start of a new era in XPW Remixed… an era spear-headed by Pfefer and his new mystery investment firm… all
will be revealed on the next XPW TV Episode, as Pfefer reveals his buyer and runs television bookings for the day… just let it be known this will be
the BIGGEST RETURN IN WRESTLING HISTORY… and at “Baptized in Blood 2” the new Black Army will beat B&B&B Enterprises in the 5-on-5 elimination tag
match and earn their part of XPW Remixed history!! SNUFF is the first member of the team!
** CUT TO RING **
TOMMASO CIAMPA versus DRAKE YOUNGER versus SHAD GASPARD
Quality triple-threat match with all 3 men putting on their work boots for the night… Tommaso Ciampa continues to amaze with his Olympia-bred
pedigree and futuristic, power-based offense… Younger is the scrappy underdog, overcoming a busted forehead to engage in an inspiring slug fest… and
big Shad G is the arrogant, big bully prick – hammering both his opponents and acting cocky all the while… plus his earlier mistreatment of Sunny
gives him an added level of crowd heat… In the end, Ciampa counters a Gaspard running boot to land a backstabber-like double knee to Gaspard’s back –
but Drake Younger comes off the top rope onto the back of Ciampa’s head – rolling him off Gaspard’s prone body where Drake Younger instead picks up
the pinfall! Drake Younger gets a gritty victory (and drives Gaspard off by threatening him with a Kendo stick when he gets too close), and Tommaso
Ciampa once again stews over his disheartening loss… Drake Younger celebrates with his Kendo stick to end the match.
Winner: DRAKE YOUNGER
SUDDENLY! We have commotion! An outside “invasion” by a group of hoodlums! They rush through the crowd carrying weaponry and wearing the same
gang colors. This is N.W.O 1997 / WWECW 2001 / Nexus 2010-type stuff right here! It’s none other than JOHN ZANDIG w/ MESSIAH, SAMI CALLIHAN & MADMAN
PONDO! The “CZWO”! (“CZW Originals”) The rush the set like a pack of Mongolian marauders, and while Drake Younger attempts to stand valiantly
against him with his Kendo stick – ultimately he is eaten alive by the invaders… they torture, massacre and mutilate Younger in the name of “Death
Match wrestling”… even Younger’s training partner DAN SEVERN attempts a run-in but is kept at bay with Kendo stick and steel chair shots! They leave
Severn laying outside the ring – and put Drake Younger through a pane of BURNING glass inside the ring! CZWO make their statement! They are taking
OVER XPW Remixed and bringing the “ToD” trophy BACK to the East Coast @ “BiB2”! “Sick” Nick Mondo beware – the next casualty will be YOU!
B&B&B Associate Logan Boggs is backstage on his cellphone, awaiting the arrival of his business partner… when he is interrupted by Heath Slater &
Honky Tonk Man… their obnoxious, egocentric behavior clearly rubs Boggs the wrong way – and he DOESN’T want to play ball with them… instead of
putting them on Team B&B&B at the PPV (like they want) he instead books a match tonight between Slater and the SECOND man on Team B&B&B… who is it?
Tune it next to find out! Slater & HTM are IRATE over the snub, but Boggs just smiles and walks away with a pimp strut!
** CUT TO RING *
HUMAN TORNADO versus HEATH SLATER (w/ Honky Tonk Man)
Oh my! The mystery opponent (and second member of Team B&B&B @ “BiB2”) is none other than HUMAN TORNADO! The feud between Tornado and Slater
continues with this exciting, entertaining match… Tornado continues to ride his wave of popularity and he outmaneuvers and out finesses the “One Man
Southern Rock Band” and his manager… comedy misdirection – Slater takes an exploding guitar shot to the head courtesy of an errant HTM shot – and
Tornado takes Honky AND Slater out to earn the pinfall! Logan Boggs joins Human Tornado in the ring post match to welcome him to the PPV team and
dance the night away! Meanwhile Slater & HTM sulk away to lick their wounds…
XPW officials are backstage still reviewing the referee KO's and anarchy that befell the end of XPW TV Episode #44... normally XPW thrives on
this kind of chaos, but now their classification as a "WORLD" title power has changed the rules... Toots Mondt reminds President Lewis (and us, the
viewer) that current XPW World champion Lou Thesz doesn't take kindly to any slights or even the illusion of impropriety - and the chance of a
world title walkout are very real (and frightening)... Ed Lewis says we have a potential money match in the making between Thesz & Sheamus that can
NOT be allowed to go the way of a typical NBA Game (and be botched by bad officials and blown calls)... President Ed "Strangler" Lewis says now
might be the time to call in that "perfect favor" of his...
** CUT **
** XPW World champion LOU THESZ speaks **
XPW Remixed WORLD champion Lou Thesz speaks with reporters about his newly-signed championship match with Sheamus @ "BiB2"... is Sheamus getting
the "LeBron James"-push from XPW Remixed promoters and does he really deserve a title shot?
LOU THESZ: If I understand the question, there are parallels in many athletes who have great ability, but they have not the temperament to
apply that skill in a constructive venue. This applies not only to wrestling, but to all walks of life. If you have a great product, you must have
the ability to market it. As I get older it becomes clearer to me the importance of who helped me create my product - and who taught me the art of
marketing my product. Credit goes to hundreds of people who gave me a boost along the way. I tried to do the same for others.
Truth to the rumors of a previous Sheamus vs Lou Thesz match?
LOU THESZ: But I never wrestled Sheamus at all. I was scheduled to wrestle him in Seattle, but he did not show. I was 28 years old
and ready for the competition.
Was that another act of "defiance" on behalf of Sheamus, who has built a reputation as being hot-headed and hard for managment to handle?
LOU THESZ: I don't think it is a matter of defying the promoter. If the personality is not there to project, it cannot be done. If the
heart is not in the performance, the wrestler has to find another way to succeed in life. At "Baptized in Blood 2" I will take the heart from
Sheamus' chest. Unlike myself, Sheamus doesn't thrill to the knowledge the audience is involved. He just love the hope of a
good payday. In short they miss the entire picture.
What about the rumors you're unhappy about Toots Mondt trying to control your booking, and concerns about crooked referees and biased
LOU THESZ: In many cases the promoter is the problem, as he doesn't know how to market a great piece of talent. I was fortunate in
having the best mentors in all aspects of professional wrestling - and it was my life. And I'll be damned if I let anybody take my life
away. I will beat Sheamus at "BiB2"...
Carl Beane, known to baseball fans as "the voice of Fenway Park," died in a single-vehicle crash after suffering a heart attack in Sturbridge,
Massachusetts, according to a statement from the Boston Red Sox (and XPW Remixed).
Beane, 59 and a Massachusetts native, began his sports broadcasting career in 1972 at WMAS radio station in Springfield. He became the famed Fenway
public address announcer in 2003 after winning a competition, the statement said. On his website, Beane touted the fact that he announced the first
two games of the 2004 World Series and witnessed the Red Sox claim the championship of Major League Baseball for the first time in 86 years. Baseball
fans also hear his voice as the lead-in of "The Baseball Experience," a multimedia presentation at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New
York, according to Beane's website.
Beane was driving his 2004 Suzuki when he suffered a heart attack, causing him to lose control of the car, according to XPW Remixed VP Joseph
"Toots" Mondt" in a statement. His vehicle then collided with a tree and a wall, authorities said. No one else was in the car and no other
cars were involved in the accident. Beane was transported from the scene and pronounced dead at Harrington Hospital in Southbridge shortly after the
crash, according to authorities.

XPW TV Episode #45 ("Black Army Reborn")
*** A NOTE ABOUT PRODUCTION VALUES ***
In-ring action is all shot in glossy, beautiful HD/3D quality... the backstage skits share the same picture quality - but have a different vibe...
These are all grainy, gritty, “Reality-TV” shots… a far cry from the well-lit, professionally positioned set pieces of WWE and their backstage
skits… most of the footage is caught by roving reporters carrying video cameras… conversations between officials (particularly anything featuring Ed
Lewis or Toots Mondt) is very fast paced and frenetic… these are busy guys always on the move… either they're caught in conversation in dark
backstage hallways and corridors of the building, or overheard around corners and from doors slightly ajar… very TNA Reaction-like in the production
quality, and it gives all the backstage proceedings a very voyeuristic, forbidden feel… a true “peek behind the curtain” so to speak… unless
otherwise noted, assume most of the skits you’ve ever seen in XPW Remixed have this look…
** RIP Tribute to Carl Beane **
** Moment of Silence **
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
Somber, even-keeled opening from Solie & Striker… what is supposed to be a crowning achievement in XPW Remixed, has now been overcast with a very
sudden pall… the tragic accidental death of B&B&B Enterprises partner Carl Beane… how will this affect B&B&B Enterprises bid? Will they still
commit to the purchase? And who is Jack Pfefer’s mystery money man, supposedly to be revealed tonight? Plus – XPW World champion Lou Thesz and #1
contender Sheamus join us for a press conference hyping their title match @ “BiB2”… a Tournament of Death qualifying match… and Heath Slater hosts a
very special episode of “Happy Hour” featuring Phil “Gunner” Shatter… join us, as the road to “Baptized in Blood 2” continues… albeit more in tune
with a funeral dirge than a parade…
XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt taking calls in his office… very unfortunate news about B&B&B Enterprises… tragic circumstances (all delivered
in a stoic, monotone cadence one might discuss a trip to the post office)… B&B&B Enterprises will be CEDING the upcoming PPV match and withdrawing
their ownership bid! Paul Bowser & Logan Boggs will be arriving later to make it official…
** CUT TO RING **
"BLACK ARMY ARISE!!"
Jack Pfefer’s theme song opens the show, and the sleazy con-man promoter makes his entrance… big boos… because of the unfortunate incident that has
befallen B&B&B Enterprises they will no longer be able to make their planned purchase… so Pfefer’s new conglomerate is stepping in to buy the 3rd
stake in XPW Remixed! He hypes up his mystery benefactor - before cueing up the theme song and (re)introducing…
”Prince of Darkness” KEVIN SULLIVAN!
Big boos for this, as Sullivan enters with a cadre of armor-wielding strippers, half-naked woman and XPW Remixed’s newest monster SNUFF (with a
leather dog collar around his neck, leashed to Sullivan)… more big boos as they take the ring alongside Pfefer (but they might be more boos of
disappointment of Pfefer’s “epic” announcement)… instead, Sullivan gets a few minutes on the mic to put himself over - curse the name of B&B&B
Enterprises - and resurrect the infamous legend of the “Black Army” in XPW Remixed… but how do you think they got that name?? Who do you think was
the dark savior they’ve been praying to?? The SAVIOR of Fantasy Wrestling… the man, the myth, the legend… making his triumphant RETURN to the
industry that has forsaken him…
Ladies and gentleman, introducing to XPW Remixed…
AND Fantasy wrestling…
The mastermind behind the new Black Army - and new (!?!?) 1/3rd owner of XPW Remixed…
ROB FN BLACK!?!?
ROB BLACK: As a person? I like the challenge that comes with creating an entertainment conglomerate, because I don't see us just as an
adult company. We do other things associated with the entertainment business. I like the challenge of doing something that people on the outside see
as taboo. I enjoy the challenge of just making the thing as a whole work, and grow, and thrive, and go. My partner, Tom -- he always says I'm a
drama junkie. I thrive on the drama. And at times, I do. Aside from the money, I enjoy that ... and just that eternal quest to keep going and make it
bigger than it is. I'd say the trajectory we'd like to be is more like a Ted Turner or a Disney or something like that, where this is
one branch that we do, and we do other wings. We own a wrestling company -- XPW. We venture in different things. We're starting a line of
R-rated movies, like "Friday the 13th"-type of movies. Ultimately, hopefully one day we'll own a football team. There's the ultimate
goal. But that is ultimately the company as a whole, an entertainment monster in the business.
It's a tragic shame what happened to B&B&B Enterprises, but it's all for the best after all... because IF Rob Black WERE to host a
team @ "BiB2" it would be bad news for anybody who dare oppose... because Rob Black's SECOND member would have been... JON MOXLEY!
His theme song plays and the slimy, grimy Jon Moxley makes his way to ringside to join the Black Army in the ring... Rob Black considers him the
FUTURE of fantasy wrestling, and Moxley is more than happy to cast his lot in with the Black Army... they "understand" him... now let's keep
this party moving! Just in case you were thinking of tuning into that "other show", don't worry... XPW Remixed is LIVE - while that shit is
just pre-recorded. Here's what happened - 1) Al Snow & Test headline the show and lose to some scrubs 2) Kurt Angle beats a jobber 3) we
can't even figure out who won in the Orient Express/Moondogs match 4) and Hulk Hogan wins the title AGAIN for the "World Whining
Federation"... oh well, now that you know how THAT turn out - don't miss the rest of our LIVE SHOW! And since Rob Black has got the book
tonight, we’re starting off this welcome home party with a BANG! An XPW Remixed Television title match!! You’re welcome! YOU’RE ALL F*****
Paul Bowser & Logan Boggs have entered the building… amidst the sorrow-felt condolences from their peers, they are greeted by (suit and tie-wearing)
Mil Mascaras – he asks that they reconsider their decision to withdraw from the PPV, and continue the purchase in honor of Carl Beane (RIP)… bad
things are afoot in fantasy wrestling…

** XPW Television title **
GORGEOUS GEORGE (w/ Focus) versus RUCKUS
Marijuana-tinged offense from Ruckus that ruffles the feathers of dainty Gorgeous George (necessitating multiple sprays of ring disinfectant from GG
the valet)… Commentators Solie & Striker speak ominously about the dire circumstances of re-allowing Rob Black into the wrestling industry… Ruckus
out-quicks George - embarrasses Otunga - but falls victim to a duo of very jealous jerks… at one point (with the ref distracted) Sabian and Michael
Tarver made the run-in (presumably to prevent anymore double-team shenanigans from Focus) - but instead ATTACKED their former comrade Ruckus! They
bashed him around ringside before Tarver struck him cold with a KO punch… Ruckus is rolled into the ring where a modified Mic-Check from Gorgeous
George gets the finish. “The Human Orchid” retains again!
Winner (and STILL XPW TV champion): GORGEOUS GEORGE WAGNER (1950)
Gorgeous George keeps the TV title in Focus!
Meanwhile Ruckus' bitter ex-allies Sabian & Michael Tarver submit to jealousy and drag their former partner down, CitB-style! ("crabs in the

completely despicable) speaker, and this segment is a tip of the hat to Heath’s old FCW work under the same title… Slater amps the crowd - gives a
sterling, golden introduction to his guest - and introduces Phil Shatter (who enters to HUGE boos as we get a video recap of his attack on former
partner Austin Idol & disrespect of former valet Jessica Darlin)…
Slater & Shatter share a few self-masturbatory moments of compliments - heaping praise upon themselves… Shatter reiterates his desire to “drop dead
weight” and go solo and Heath Slater sympathizes with him (citing his split with former WWE tag team partner Justin Gabriel for example - another
quick, cheap shot at Rav-P’s WWF by XPW Remixed)…
This time – to make things a little spicy – Heath Slater has invited another guest onto the show today… JESSICA DARLIN! She enters (still looking
sad or mad or constipated or something – bad acting)… she doesn’t even get to talk – Slater & Gunner bombard her with insults and accusations…
finally, Gunner actually SNATCHES her up by the hair in a very threatening, physical manner! She looks absolutely TINY in his big hands! In a
disgusting display, Gunner actually RIPS Darlin's top completely off! She hurries to cover herself and Gunner SHOVES her to the mat!
Suddenly we have an EXPLOSION of action! None other than a street clothes-wearing, baseball bat-wielding AUSTIN IDOL has stormed the set! Slater
flees! Gunner is shocked! Idol only gets a few shots in before Gunner too flees the scene! So in his anger, Idol helps Darlin off the mat – grabs a
mic – and challenges former partner Phil “Gunner” Shatter to a fight @ “BiB2”!!! Gunner is shocked and at a loss of words… so Austin Idol completely
demolishes the “Happy Hour” set! Idol and Darlin left in the ring as Gunner slowly retreats (eyes locked upon Idol’s the entire time)!
Awesome and creepy CZWO black-and-white promo to begin - with Sami Callihan giving praise to the Savior of Xtreme John Zandig - and hyping up his
ghoulish henchman MadMan Pondo for the following contest… video cut to a brief training vignette between Drake Younger & Dan Severn… they are
training Xtremely diligently, with the CZWO attack upon them (see XPW Online #19) still fresh in their minds… Younger vows to reach the brink of
death in order to bring honor to the Shooters Club and keep the ToD trophy in XPW Remixed…
Winner: DRAKE YOUNGER
No sooner has Drake Younger picked up the win – that we get the inevitable CZWO run-in and massacre… the John Zandig-led posse is hellbent on
desecrating XPW Remixed and taking the precious “Tournament of Death” trophy BACK to the East Coast (where Zandig and cronies claim “Xtreme was
born”)… Solie & Striker’s commentary always gives even the most insane (or inane) XPW Remixed segments a certain air of gravitas and their coverage
of this attack (including Drake Younger’s own long storied history with CZW) is no different…
Suddenly – none other than THUMBTACK JACK – makes the shambling, horror-movie run in for the save! The demented, German mad-scientist-gone-wild
enters wielding light tubes and syringes, and earns a pop from the crowd for finally standing up for himself against the evil, brainwashing antics of
his former mentor Sami Callihan! Thumbtack Jack plays the “Virgil”-underdog role here – avenging his own sacrifice to Zandig (see XPW TV Episode
#44)… TJ gets a few spots against the CZWO – but inevitably the numbers game is too much… CZWO take over on Drake Younger & Thumbtack jack and
prepare murder them with cinder blocks and glass panes… when suddenly –
When they return… Two figures in the ring – one who wields a FLAMETHROWER!
FWOOSH! It’s none other than ATSUSHI ONITA and the revamped JUN KASAI!!
They scatter CZWO with a huge SPRAY from the flame thrower! Zandig and his troops circle the ring like wolves, but eventually powder out of the
scene as Onita (directing traffic) and Jun Kasai take control of the ring! FLAMING TABLES POWERBOMBS to Drake Younger & Thumbtack Jack! Both men are
left a smoldering wreck as the announcers question Onita’s motivation! So he grabs a mic to issue his mission statement…
XPW Remixed thumbs down! CZWO thumbs down! XTREME WAS BORN IN THE EEEEEAAAASSSSTTTT!!!! Japanese Death Match specialists here to reclaim their
glory in honor of the Rising Sun! Boooooo from the nationalistic, American fanbase! Onita breaks out all the evil Japanese subtypes, nearly starting
a riot with his rhetoric! All the while, Thumbtack Jack has miraculously stirred from the flaming wreckage… he drags himself to his feet with a
Kendo stick – unseen by Onita and Kasai – and prepares to strike! But before he can, another mysterious black-face-painted stranger has appeared on
the ring apron like a cat! Thumbtack Jack eats a BLAST of black mist to his eyes from the stranger! Ooooo! Thumbtack Jack goes down and the
mysterious assailant is revealed…
Atsushi Onita’s hardcore Far East delegation has just expanded! The mysterious, silent ninjitsu assassin joins side-by-side with the raving Onita
and dead-serious Kasai to form an intimidating sight…. Onita then continues the heel shtick by praising the Black Army and offering his allegiance to
their cause! This of course draws the theme song of the Black Army, and our dark host for the night – ROB BLACK – enters once more… he is ecstatic
and overjoyed to witness such sadism and destruction and gleefully welcomes Onita’s posse into his fold… Rob Black rewards Onita’s brand of anarchy
with glowing praise – and says that if he were still required to build his Black Army team at “BiB2” – he would definitely pick HAKUSHI KURO to
represent alongside him… as it is, the LEAST Mister Rob Black can do for Onita tonight is give his man JUN KASAI an entrance into the “Tournament of
Death” @ BiB2! Rob Black has given Onita the chance to take the coveted ToD tourney back to Japan where it belongs! Everybody is in the ring
glad-handing and congratulating each other…
ROB BLACK: We are going to be Extreme. I'm going to create this company. I'm going to create this character, Rob Black,
who's going to be like, this demonic-like figure, this boisterous, obnoxious person. And I'm going to direct movies that are just out
there. But it's no different than if you go into a video store and buy a "Banned from TV, Caught on Video." And they've got like five
volumes, and all it is is news footage of these horrific accidents with people getting hit by trains (laughs), and a guy with a stand-off with
hostages, and the cops blow his brains out, and his blood. ... It's the same thing. You could go into Tower Records or Best Buy and buy a video
where people are dying on camera. ...
...when we get our final interruption…
Look! Up in the rafters! Moving into the balcony section and the embrace of the fans!
”SICK” NICK MONDO!
Heartfelt, impassioned, dedicated (and grisly) promo from “Sick” Nick Mondo – completely cutting down the CZWO, Rob Black AND Onita’s delegation…
Mondo represents the TRUE spirit of XTREME and he is ready and willing to give HIS OWN LIFE at BiB2 as long as his sacrifice can prevent ANY of them
from leaving with the ToD trophy! That blood-stained relic means more to Mondo & the people than LIFE ITSELF… for all the lost souls, everybody
who’s ever been tormented or bullied… for the bloody injustices of mankind MONDO WILL PREVAIL at ToD!
Onita's Xtreme Delegation!!
The Black Army!!
Everybody is looking to take home the Tournament of Death Trophy!!
Only at "Baptized in Blood 2"!!
** CUT **
Special episode of “Missy’s Manor” featuring her boys the Diamond Dynasty… another entertaining, character-building sketch where Matt Morgan &
Alex Riley get to put over their privileged, arrogant, professional jock personas and “Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers lords over the proceedings like a
billionaire sports agent… the Dynasty target the New Age Outlaws with their promo, and are so confident in their abilities – and such prolific
betting men – that they’re willing to double-up that $25k the NAO stole from them previously (see XPW TV Episode #42)!... Fuck it, double THAT!
$100K says the NAO don’t have what it takes to beat the Dynasty (Morgan & Riley) two-on-two!!! Wow what a bet! The Dynasty is putting their money
where their mouth is, and putting NAO’s manhood on the line! How will the New Age Outlaws respond???
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Backstage correspondent MSD catches up with B&B&B associates Paul Bowser & Logan Boggs… somber remembrance of Carl Beane and condolences to his
family… MSD asks how his business partners will proceed? Paul Bowser responds that they are forfeiting their PPV match and retracting their bid…
Logan Boggs says Carl Beane really wanted to bring big-time wrestling back to Boston MA but that dream no longer seems practical in the wake of such
catastrophic loss… just then – none other than JON MOXLEY saunters into the scene! The disturbing, “James Dean of the gangsta rap era” Jon Moxley
shoulders up to Bowser and Boggs in an uncomfortable scene… ostensibly he is offering his condolences on their loss as well, but every word is
dripping with bitter sarcasm – as if he blames THEM for Beane’s death in some karmic, roundabout way… he also cryptically warns them that it was wise
to drop their PPV match against the Black Army, lest any MORE unfortunate tragedies befall them… just the way he says that, smirks and then powders
out of the scene, really rubs everybody the wrong way… and you see a subtle fire being lit in the eyes of Bowser & Boggs as they storm off to prepare
their “secession speech”…
We are in the backstage area prepping for another long-winded, bitter diatribe from (unofficial) XPW Remixed champion Shane Douglas (w/ Lizzy
Borden)… Shane goes off on another “shoot” tirade, targeting “old dinosaurs” like Thesz, Sammartino & French Angel while simultaneously chastising
up-and-comers like Human Tornado for not being ready… but he saves his most bitter bile for reigning XPW Boston champion John Cena… but THIS time,
Shane Douglas gets his wish… JOHN CENA IS ON THE SET TO ANSWER HIM!
It’s the “Franchise” 1996 versus the “Franchise” of WWE in a verbal confrontation! Epic level! Cena goes quickly from mocking Douglas with humor to
pulsating with intensity as he addresses Shane’s gripes and dismantles all of them… Cena is a fighter and if Shane Douglas thinks he can just show up
and everybody owes him something, then he’s got another thing coming…. Things are getting really tense here between the two men – when we are
interrupted and broken up by ROB BLACK and his entourage!
On behalf of GDT Inc, Black Army & XPW Remixed – Shane Douglas is being recognized for his leading his War Games team to victory @ “Scene of the
Crime”… on the flip side of the coin, John Cena too is being recognized for his string of high profile matches and recent title defense at the same
show (Rob Black loves Xtreme matches)… Black alludes to some kind of "arrangement" Lizzy Borden helped make (and they share an inside "wink" and
smile) therefore he has been granted the authority to announce a huge TITLE UNIFICATION MATCH @ the XPW Remixed premiere supercard “Baptzied in Blood
2”! WHAT!? You’ve heard that right! Shane Douglas (2002) versus John Cena (2012) in a merger of both Shane’s “counterfeit” title and Cena’s
“Boston” championship! After BiB2 there can be only ONE! Rob Black stirs the pot – intense staredown from Douglas & Cena – but right before Rob
Black exits he remembers something… a tag team main event match TONIGHT. With Shane Douglas & John Cena TEAMING UP! Another stunning Black Army
initivative! Now Cena and Douglas’ expressions subtly change, as they are forced to embrace the concept of teaming up TONIGHT! But who will be their
opponents!? And on the fade out, Lizzy Borden has one final word for “the champ” John Cena… a literal “FU” if you will…
REPORTER: What does this XPW World title match @ “BiB2” mean to both of you?
LOU THESZ: It was a labor of love for me… I wanted to tell the world what it was like to go up and down the road doing wrestling. During the
Depression it was really hard. I devoted my young years to that. When TV came along, I had a lot of visibility. What they are teaching now is
choreographed tumbling… It's certainly entertainment, most people know that by now. In my opinion, if you are going to make a living
wrestling, you should know how to do it. Some of them today are really great athletes, but few of them have sophisticated wrestling knowledge.
SHEAMUS: I want people walking away from ”Baptized in Blood 2” talking about our match… I’m representing Ireland again, I’m the
champion of the United States of America and there are going to be some great matches, but I’m going to give everything I have to steal the show! I’m
an Irishman who came up from a small little country, followed his dream to hold the title!
REPORTER: Have you two met within the fantasy wrestling spectrum before?
LOU THESZ: I met him and he's a nice guy. I'm pleased that he's making a living. We have mutual respect. I respect him
for his abilities, but as far as the quality of his wrestling, I really don't know. I am flattered that he uses the Lou Thesz press, but
it's actually a flying body scissors.
SHEAMUS: Ah no, I’ll leave’m in the match he’s in… I don’t need him shouting at me. (laughs) I’m not happy until I’m going
forward and accomplishing goals…
REPORTER: Each of you are legendary heavyweight wrestlers in their prime. This is a fantasy match-up they’ll be talking about for eons.
LOU THESZ: Sheamus is a very good athlete. He's probably the best Irish wrestler we ever had. I won the title a couple times…
he’s a good wrestler. A competent wrestler, but maybe not as swift. Very popular. He had a great image. They would sell-out people. We made a lot
of business at Maple Leaf Gardens and the Forum.
SHEAMUS: knew that to beat Lou Thesz at ”BiB2” was going to be the icing on the cake for one of the best rookie years that ever
happened in fantasy wrestling history… but at BiB2 I put him on the shelf . . . definitely a nice way to put him out. Hoping he’d be
gone for good…
REPORTER: What is your take on Rob Black’s debut in Fantasy Wrestling, and him coming to buy back XPW Remixed?
LOU THESZ: That was entertained many years ago. He tried to do that in Tennessee. After I talked to the union people, I realized it
was nefarious promoters of nefarious union people. I didn't like what I heard. The climate hasn't changed. You are going to be under
someone's thumb either way.
SHEAMUS: There aren’t going to be too many happy people in the audience, but that’s okay.
REPORTER: This is the first time in Territory Wars history the XPW title has been accredited “world title” status… what does that monumental
achievement mean to each of you? And how will you each try to carry the torch in the future?
SHEAMUS: Being the champion is a big deal for me. Knowing that my ancestors built this country, it’s kind of like, the Irish were treated
badly in this country for a long time, with a lot of tacky Irish stereotypes, so to me it’s kind of like a bragging right. I’m enjoying shoving it
down people’s throats that an Irish guy is their champion.
LOU THESZ: My mentor and friend Ed 'Strangler' Lewis wrestled until 65. He taught me how to control myself in business as well as
in the ring. He had tremendous name recognition worldwide, before plane travel. I don't know who else who is around who has visibility.
I'm surprised that I have the visibility that I do, to be honest. When I said wrestle, that's what I did. I took the title around the
world. I'm really flattered by the recognition. Sometimes it's even better than money. I did the best that I could with the tools that
I had. Farmer Burns coached Karl Gotch. I met Farmer Burns when I was 17, it was like meeting the President of the United States. I tried to
emulate what these people did.
REPORTER: Sheamus, what will be your strategy going into “Baptized in Blood 2”?
SHEAMUS: Well, I’m gonna have to try and catch him. The great thing about the match is it’s a good story, the big guy against the smaller
guy, one of the best stories you can tell. For everyone watching the height difference and strength difference we have, it will be an interesting
bout. I’ll do my best to try and ground him but it’s very hard to try and catch a flying squirrel. He’s up against it. But I’m grand once I keep
winning trophies. That’s all that counts. I’m going to BiB2, and from there I just want to keep taking leaps and bounds until I become one of
the greatest ever. I can’t complain right now, I’m enjoying myself, the matches are great and I’m making a name for myself. I keep building that
Celtic Warrior brand.
REPORTER: Mister Thesz, do you agree with the direction Rob Black wants to continue XPW Remixed taking? Or do you plan on protesting the
potential purchase? And are the sex, drinking and drugs worse today than yesterday?
LOU THESZ: Not to the degree that it does today, with the porno stuff. Some of the guys did some drinking. Drugs were not on the scene at
all, we weren't even aware of them. The guys doing the drinking weren't on the top, that's for sure. We had a few sex scandals.
Some of the girls, waiting to say hello to the athletes, they were available to whomever wanted them. That was always around. We used to call them
arena rats, though that isn't very nice. They were just hanging around as party girls.
XPW Remixed president Ed “Strangler” Lewis – who has been sitting between both men, mediating the exchange – wraps up the Q&A session with two
bombshell announcements… 1st) Lou Thesz & Sheamus will be teaming up TONIGHT in a tornado tag team match (against Cena & Douglas)! Sheamus & Thesz
become enraged! A “BiB2” main event preview! And the 2nd announcement… oh no, wait! Sheamus & Lou Thesz have erupted from their spots at the
podium! Tables and chairs are overturned! Paperwork is scattered everywhere, and people dive for cover as Thesz & Sheamus goes nose-to-nose,
shouting each other down! This is madness! Everybody jumps in to separate the two, and cameras fade out… Ed Lewis never got to Announcement
LOU THESZ & SHEAMUS
JOHN CENA & SHANE DOUGLAS!!
SAMOA JOE (2007) versus BRUNO SAMMARTINO (1973) ("Falls Count Anywhere Match")
Joined in progress backstage – both men brawling wildly and uncontrollably in their street clothes, tearing entire rooms apart… a live action
Hollywood fight scene at its pulse-pounding finest… Sammartino and Samoa Joe destroy a locker room and send backstage personnel scattering… both men
driven through a drywall into the next part of the building… Sammartino with a European uppercut… Samoa Joe with an Irish whip and Sammartino goes
crashing into the backstage lighting and accessories… really stiff, “shoot-style” stuff here from both men… Sammartino fights back and sends Samoa
Joe bursting through a backstage door and into the catering section… chaos continues to ensue as the announcers try to make reason of it, and we are
forced into commercial break… Chaos in XPW Remixed tonight!
Sammartino slams Samoa Joe’s head into a staircase, and even tries to curb stomp Joe’s skull! But Joe fights back and the two men continue their
wild brawl… Samoa Joe chokes Sammartino on the floor, and hits a series of knees - followed by a running boot that knocks Sammartino over a
stairwell wall… Samoa Joe gets a near fall on the tile floor… Samoa Joe sends Sammartino into another brick wall but Sammartino punches back…
Samoa Joe with a head kick nearly kills Bruno, and he sends Sammartino into a glass partition backstage (SMASHING it dramatically)… Joe seems winded
and ready to end this wild ride, but Bruno kicks out! So Samoa Joe angrily stomps the shit out of him on the floor before trying to lock in his rear
naked choke! Another ill thing about this fight – as it transpires backstage, the roar of the crowd is but a buzz in the background – putting an
emphasis more on dialogue between the two men… so every struggle, threat and challenge made by each man is picked up on camera… here Joe is literally
threatening to KILL Bruno live on TV!
But Bruno won’t die, and he fights back like an Italian superman! Sammartino with punches and kicks, yelling at Joe to stay down! They’re fighting
in what appears to be a parking lot or something… Sammartino hurls Joe into the hood of a car… but he can’t keep Joe down for a 3-count (as the
diligent XPW referee follows them throughout the building – but he’s only there to count the fall, as the announcers continually remind you)…
Sammartino punches Samoa Joe but Samoa Joe with a back heel kick - and then he sets Bruno up for a pump handle slam on a car hood!! But
Sammartino fights out with elbows and clotheslines Joe right off the hood of the car! Joe crashes right onto the hood of an adjacent car in a wicked
bump! “XPW! XPW!” chants… Samoa Joe rolls to the concrete floor in obvious pain, and sammartino sends him over the stone divider… he drags Samoa
Joe back into the building, where the wreckage from their fight is still fresh… Bruno slides Joe across the catering table in the hallway – then
hurls him into a laundry cart and a production container… Bruno is on fire, and fighting with an unseen intensity… Sammartino sends Samoa Joe hard
into another wall, and goes for a steel chair! But Samoa Joe ducks at the last instant (or he would be DEAD) and Sammartino cracks the wall with the
chair… They continue to fight into the back (scattering people everywhere they go) and the elevator doors open… Joe & Bruno actually brawl ONTO the
We cut to security camera footage from INSIDE the elevator, where the fight is continuing! Sammartino punches Samoa Joe and they continue to
struggle… finally, the elevator stops on the next floor – and there’s the referee waiting to resume where he left off when the elevator doors shut him
out… More people flee while the battle continues! Sammartino rolls into the hallway and struggles to his feet... Joe charges off the elevator for a
spear - but Sammartino spinebusters him through a nearby wall! Sammartino nearly collapses on Joe and gets the quick 3-count! OMG Sammartino has
done it! He's come from behind to even the score 3-3! Sammartino's arm is raised by the ref, but he can barely stand... and now Joe has
been driven into a RAGE...
Winner: BRUNO SAMMARTINO
Suddenly Joe ATTACKS Bruno from behind! The camera is knocked ASKEW in the struggle! We hear violent sound effects, and finally a woman
SCREAMING! When cameras finally jostle into focus… we see an over the shoulder shot of Samoa Joe looking down two flights of stone stairs… there, at
the bottom – in a bloody, crumpled, unmoving heap – is Bruno Sammartino! He took a two-story plunge down two flights of stairs! Samoa Joe just
stares angrily at Bruno for a few moments while being held back by security (soaking up his handiwork perhaps?) before storming out of a side exit in
the building, setting off the alarm… referees and paramedics tend to Bruno unconscious on the concrete floor…
** CUT **
New Age Outlaws promo where they answer the Dynasty’s challenge – they still display some of that classic Attitude-era “DX” attitude – but Road
Dogg & Billy Gunn are more serious now than perhaps you’ve ever seen them… The NAO ACCEPT the Dynasty’s challenge and will fight them at BiB2! But
the NAO know the Dynasty is a betting firm, so they’re offering to raise the stakes even higher… not just $100k on the line, but history as well…
Dogg & Gunn are willing to put themselves on the line in this match! In a $100k “Losers Must Disband”! challenge! Now are the Dynasty man enough to
accept THAT?? If they win, the NAO will break up for good! Or vice versa! Oh my, the stakes have just been raised considerably! One tag team will
come to a permanent end at BiB2!!
The last remnants of B&B&B Enterprise (Paul Bowser & Logan Boggs) enter the ring for their secession speech… security escorts them, and surround
the ring... Bowser & Boggs are greeted with a standing ovation from the audience, as still photos of Carl Beane play on the entrance screen… Logan
Boggs thanks the fans and big ups the XPW Remixed product and audience… Paul Bowser does the same, but mid-way through his speech – we’re interrupted
by the BLACK ARMY!
Enter Rob Black and his crew!
Very condescending (bordering on degrading) promo from Black, addressed to Bowser & Boggs… Rob Black was so confident B&B&B Enterprises would vanish
without a fight that he was willing to FEED A PUPPY TO A SNAKE LIVE ON THE INTERNET if they did show up at the PPV! Good thing he didn’t have to go
through with THAT little stunt! Wow would PETA be pissed! Rob Black is out here now because he wants to hear their secession speech in person…
Kevin Sullivan also thinks that Bowser & Boggs should also kiss Rob Black’s diamond ring on the way out… it’s a “joke”, but the way he says it (with
an arrogant sneer) and the evil, intimidating group of Devil worshippers around him, it comes off more like a THREAT… and Bowser & Boggs don’t take
too kindly to threats…
In a stunning turn of events, Paul Bowser grabs the mic and BLASTS Rob Black’s Black Army! Carrying the weight of the Territory Wars on his
shoulders, Paul Bowser lambastes everything the Black Army stands for and believes in… he likens them to a “pox” or “hex” upon fantasy wrestling,
intent only on driving this very business straight into the GRAVE! And Paul Bowser, Logan Boggs and all the true wrestling FANS in the world WILL NOT
STAND FOR THAT! That’s why Bowser & Boggs are here tonight NOT to offer a “secession speech”… instead they’re here to mobilize the troops, galvanize
the movement, and SAVE FANTASY WRESTLING! B&B&B will be @ “BiB2” ready to take back XPW Remixed! Big pop from the fans for that fiery announcement!
After the initial shock of those words wear off, Rob Black is left with that snide smirk upon his face… he anticipated this announcement of
course, which is why his recruitment efforts for the BiB2 Survivor Series match never wavered… you see, Rob Black is different from B&B&B
Enterprises; different from EVERY other promoter… he knows what sells, he knows what fans want… and he’s not above giving them that… regardless of
the boundaries of good taste and decency…
Another thing that is very taboo in our business that we started years ago was depicting drug use. That's very taboo. People don't do
that. And I was like, "Well, why? Why can't you do a scene like in 'Scarface?'" The guy's face is in just kilos of coke, and
he goes nuts and -- "You can't do that." "Well, why? What do you mean, 'You can't do it?'" "Well, you just can't."
But nobody can ever tell me why you can't do it. So we just did it. That's what we do. And that's the other thing that we've
been known for. We're known for all this taboo stuff that everyone's said you can't do, and we do it. And we sell it. ... People are
bored with the other stuff.
Cue insane run-in! Through the crowd, over the barricade, and into the wall of B&B&B security guards! A massive, white-haired freak (wearing all
white) with dilated pupils and white powder caked around his nostrils! In a drug-fueled frenzy, the rotund madman goes ballistic on the security team
– hurling them about with reckless abandon! It’s a “shoot atmosphere” setting now, with fans scattering and chaos unfolding…
(Re) Introducing to XPW Remixed…
The madman even no-sells a can of mace spray to the eye! Instead it drives him MORE into a frenzy, and he smashes the guards through security walls
and into rows of chairs! He charges the ring to join the Black Army, so now they have Paul Bowser & Logan Boggs alone and surrounded! Rob Black just
smiles and his crew begins inching closer, like a pack of ravenous dogs about to devour two defenseless rabbits! Kilo lines up across from them like
a raging bull, just snorting and ready to run right through them! There is a moment of tension before Rob Black plays the Nascar role and directs
Kilo forward! He charges at Boggs & Bowser, who flinch and brace for contact! But juuuuuust as Kilo is charging across the ring, he’s intercepted!
From out of nowhere comes the FRENCH ANGEL (w/ Sammi Lane!) He runs through the ropes to SPEAR Kilo in mid-stride, right in the center of the ring!
French Angel stops the attack and saves Bowser & Boggs (who quickly flee from the ring)! Angel and Kilo are locked in mortal combat on the mat, but
the brief reprieve gave Bowser & Boggs JUST enough time to escape! Rob Black is irate!
With more security and off-duty police officers getting involved in the mix, we have a break down in action… slowly the two sides begin congealing at
ringside… Rob Black’s “BLACK ARMY” inside the ring (including Snuff w/ Kevin Sullivan, Jon Moxley, Hakushi Kuro & now KILO)… and B&B&B’s back-up in
the aisle way (including Mil Mascaras, Human Tornado & now French Angel)… both sides are angrily staring each other down and shouting threats… Rob
Black’s grating voice once again cuts above the fracas… full-blown, foul-mouthed & vulgar tirade against B&B&B Enterprises… In the entrance ramp,
Mascaras & Angel hold Paul Bowser back while Human Tornado looks on angrily… Logan Boggs is making a cellphone call, and walking back up the entrance
ramp as he does… Rob Black continues - Fantasy Wrestling is SICK of the politics, policies and handcuffs! Fantasy Wrestling needs to be SAVED before
it goes the way of the dinosaur, dodo bird or AWA! And Rob Black isn’t the only guy in Fantasy Wrestling to realize this… he has some powerful
allies in high positions… ominous words to introduce the final member of the Black Army at “Baptized in Blood 2”…
A huge BLAST of pyro lights up the entrance ramp, momentarily stunning Logan Boggs as he stands right in the middle… Suddenly somebody bursts through
the entrance curtain to SMASH A GUITAR OVER LOGAN BOGGS HEAD! OMG look who it is!!!
That’s right, boys! Another victim of the injustice inherent in Boggs & B&B&B Enterprises entire infrastructure! Jeff Jarrett! The creator,
founder and DIETY of TNA Wrestling! Cast out of the company HE BUILT at the hands of Logan Boggs! Now he’s linking up with Rob Black & the Black
Army to seek his revenge and TAKE BACK FANTASY WRESTLING!
JEFF JARRETT: At the end of the day, professional wrestling has been in my family for over 70 years… it’s in my blood! I’ve also found it
very rewarding to be part of an organization that’s always had a never-say-die attitude, and we’re right here on the cusp of launching several other
programs - so XPW Remixed is thriving globally! Logan Boggs… I don’t want to comment on the personal side, but I will say this: like
any two creative minds in professional wrestling, we do have different thoughts, different philosophies, and business differences, and I don’t think
that’s uncommon when you have a 30-year age gap. The professional wrestling business is entirely different from what it was just 10 years ago, with
the advent of social media and how fans consume the product… and in this business, there’s really only one group of people that you ultimately have
to answer to… THE BLACK ARMY! Always have been, and always will be THE ULTIMATE BOSS!
The Black Army unites and celebrates… Logan Boggs does a stretcher job… the rest of Team B&B&B look concerned, and perhaps slightly overmatched…
what can they possibly bring to “Baptized in Blood 2” to even these insurmountable odds??
LOU THESZ (1952) & SHEAMUS (2012)
JOHN CENA (2012) & SHANE DOUGLAS w/ Lizzy Borden (2002) (Tornado Tag Team Match)
Big made-4-TV entrances from all men… just the stare downs, cross-pollination of timelines, and 4-way feud possibilities alone are chill inducing…
never mind the crowd nirvana behind them, producing a surge of wild humanity that translates very vibrantly on the screen… this is one rowdy mass of
humanity... like ATL 1998 as Goldberg takes on Hollywood Hogan for the title… tension is thick in the air, like VKM Jr just walked out for the first
time on RAW to fight Stone Cold Steve Austin (with one arm tied behind his back)… and for a few glorious minutes we get just that… exciting fantasy
warfare with Shane Douglas trying to freeze John Cena from the match, and Lou Thesz/Sheamus constantly trying to one-up each other… but in the end,
anarchy rules and the match completely breaks down... John Cena winds up having some words with Lizzy Borden outside the ring that quickly
escalates... Sheamus accidentally takes out the ref with a Brogue kick… another ref is trying to pry Lou Thesz off John Cena (another dream match!),
but Thesz is so involved in the heat of the moment that he HURLS the referee to the mat and continues brawling! Shane Douglas sneak attacks his own
partner John Cena!
SHANE DOUGLAS SMASHES JOHN CENA WITH THE BELT!
From behind with the counterfeit XPW belt (handed to him by Lizzy Borden!) Shane Douglas comes face-to-face with Lou Thesz and tells him (with a
belligerent “F” bomb) that SHANE IS THE FN MAN AROUND HERE! Sheamus comes full steam ahead for another Brogue kick, but Douglas ducks and SHEAMUS
KICKS LOU THESZ!
BROGUE KICK FROM SHEAMUS TO THESZ! But was it accidental?!?!
Still no referee! But now John Cena is back and TACKLES Shane Douglas through the ropes! The two men are brawling wildly at ringside! Sheamus is
trying to tend on Lou Thesz, but referees and officials pull him off! That slight distraction allows (the near ferocious with anger) Lou Thesz to
buckle Sheamus from behind and LOCK IN AN STF on the Celtic Warrior!
THESZ WITH THE STF ON SHEAMUS!!
Oh my, Sheamus is tapping out in pain in the center of the ring to Lou Thesz’ crippling submission hold! Meanwhile, Cena & Douglas have taken their
brawl into the stands! They fight all the way out the building!
Winner: NONE (no finish)
The bell begins tolling wildly; signifying an end to the “match”… more referees, security and off-duty police rush the scene to separate the 4
men… Lou Thesz finally breaks the hold and a sea of officials separate him in the ring from Sheamus (slowly getting to his feet and selling the pain
of the STF)… enter the voice of reason in this sea of madness…
XPW Remixed President ED “STRANGLER” LEWIS
1) Instant replay of the referee assaults perpetuated by Thesz/Sheamus (both this week and last Episode).
2) Both men to be fined $25k for the grievance.
3) The XPW Championship match @ BiB2 is being held to an all-new standard, ever since “World” title recognition has been received… therefore it must
be decided in “Best 2 out of 3 Falls” fashion.
4) Finally… the announcement Ed Lewis never got to make at the press conference…
Ladies & gentleman, please give a warm XPW Remixed round of applause for the man who will be assuming special GUEST REFEREE duties @ “Baptized in
”MR PERFECT” CURT HENNIG!!
MR. PERFECT: You know, the more I listen to you imperfect people, the more I realize how much trouble you’re trying to start. You don’t have
the right to ask me about the perfect referee. Understand me? Right now, the only goals that Mr Perfect would like to achieve are… well,
whatever I decide to make of my future, Mr. Perfect’s gonna do it! You can’t stop me, the Territory Wars can’t stop me, and nobody will stop
Mr. Perfect. Lou Thesz… that’s where your wrestling ability ends. It may help you win your matches against other wrestlers here, but it won’t
help you one bit when you get in that ring and look Mr. Perfect in the face. Because no matter what you do, I can do better. And Sheamus, I
won’t give you a chance to hit me [like he hit the other referees]… It’s as easy as that! When I get in the ring, I’m gonna be all over the
Celtic Warrior. He won’t have enough time to think, let alone try to hit me with that illegal kick of his. Remember - I’m absolutely
perfect, and that’s how I’ll stay!!
Crowd is cheering/booing! Sheamus & Thesz exchange furious, yet uneasy glares! Ed "Strangler" Lewis & Mr Perfect shake hands at the top of the
ramp, smile and pose for pictures! Oh my, "Baptized in Blood 2" is shaping up to be an All-Star gala affair!!

Cut to the in-studio host for the show:
SAMMI LANE: I'm a psychology major, which speaks a bit about me as a person. I'm just a girl who likes to kick ass! Sometimes
I'm a heel, sometimes I'm a baby face. Whatever it is, I still go out there and have a blast! I saw how driven the French Angel
was ...with passion and energy...and really inspired me. I knew I wanted to do the same. That's why I'll be accompanying him to the
ring @ "BiB2" when we take down the Black Army - and again tonight when we kickstart the festivities with a tag team main event match!
POGO the CLOWN versus HAYSTACKS CALHOUN (“Buried Alive Match”)
Hard sell match for the PPV (putting over the whole “Baptized in Blood” ritualistic motif), and another gloriously camp-filled horror abomination of a
sketch… What Calhoun and Pogo lack in genuine wrestling “skill” - they more than make up for in sheer TV presence... This violent (yet thankfully
short) and brutish brawl takes place in some backwoods cabin setting straight out of a horror movie… the inclination is clear as the (inferred)
child-molesting, mass murderer Pogo the Clown has been stalking teenage victims in route to confronting his ultimate target (and the man who beat him
in a “Bodybag Match” @ “Scene of the Crime”) HAYSTACKS CALHOUN… but in this case, the dark tide of evil is too much to stem for the affable country
boy - who finds his heart stricken by the intense fear that pervades the entire scene… BARBED-WIRE SHOVEL SHOT to Haystack’s head, breaking the
weapon upon impact! Calhoun is DEAD and Pogo the Clown (in his final, dramatic display of inhuman strength) gets the massive corpse rolled out into
the field where a massive, hand-dug hole in the ground doubles as Haystacks grave tonight… Pogo methodically fills the hole in with dirt… and with
each shovel-full of earth he symbolically represents the rise of the Black Army in fantasy wrestling - putting the past to rest in it’s shallow grave
one body at a time…
Quick, backstage promo with a cackling Shane Douglas (and beguiling Lizzy Borden) introducing the next piece... all throughout their monologue,
you can see Chyna passed out on a couch behind them... hilarious because Shane & Lizzy completely no-sell that, while at the same time tout Chyna as
being "on top of her game"... including this little romp with John Cena...
"John Cena stars in porn with Chyna" is what the headlines read.
The reality - Lizzy Borden directed this straight-to-video cult classic video (starring Chyna) instead
A parody of the WWE Royal Rumble, WAFU Mega Brawl or XPW Remixed "Slaughtahouse Stampede" match - a collection of wrestling themed porn
actors enter the ring to do battle with Chyna. Yes, there is indeed a porn actor masquerading as "John Cena".
Chyna "wins" the gangbang scenes in case you couldn't guess, but it's a shame she couldn't stay concious long enough to
tell us about her victory.[/spoiler]
** SHANE DOUGLAS (2002) versus JOHN CENA (2012) **
AUSTIN IDOL: Yeah baby, the “Universal Hearthrob”!
MSD: How has your fantasy wrestling experience in XPW Remixed open other doors for you?
AUSTIN IDOL: This past summer I participated in the 12th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos… this one started at 2:17 in the morning. It was
an incredible experience. The Insane Clown Posse, those guys are geniuses. They respect old school wrestling.
MSD: Explain the breakdown between you and ex-partner Phil “Gunner” Shatter, and the dissolution of the (Real) Kings of Wrestling?
AUSTIN IDOL: I had a chip on my shoulder for a while because I was taking this pounding and beating for so long… I was mentally and
physically beaten down for 11 months. I just wouldn’t quit. It was a hard lesson, but a good one.
MSD: Who’s been your biggest influence thus far in XPW Remixed?
AUSTIN IDOL: Buddy Rogers. There was never another Buddy Rogers. He was light years ahead of his time. Ric Flair took the figure-four from
Buddy Rogers, and I took it from Jack Brisco, who got it from Eddie Graham who got it from Buddy Rogers.
MSD: So do you have any props for superstars of today and tomorrow? Or is it true you consider it all a sort of plagiarism?
AUSTIN IDOL: I did the thing with my hand where I would paint-brush my face… (“U can’t see me”) I got that from Muhammed Ali, and Ali
got that from Gorgeous George.
MSD: You embarked on a short-lived solo career when Shatter was injured… how did that affect the team dynamic?
AUSTIN IDOL: He was out for about three weeks. He should’ve stayed out for two months, but he wanted to come back. I said “Stay out, man.
The longer you stay out the bigger this thing will be”… He couldn’t take it and came back early, but it still turned out big.
MSD: And now his despicable treatment of Jessica Darlin as of late… your thoughts on that? How does that make you feel?
AUSTIN IDOL: White-hot to kill somebody… a coward runs away to live another day. But @ “BiB2”, Gunner won’t have anywhere left to run
when I get my hands on that traitor!
Cue entrance theme of Jessica Darlin - and the former valet to the (Real) Kings of Wrestling tag team makes her way to the ring… she pleads with
Austin Idol to show remorse, saying Gunner can’t be held responsible for his actions… Idol & Shatter have a nice repartee, but out of nowhere! -
Phil “Gunner” Shatter makes the sneak-attack run-in! He blindsides Idol from the rear, driving him into Jessica Darlin with concussive force -
slamming her to the mat where she remains unmoving! Phil Shatter beats down Austin Idol in the ring! In a slow dramatic reveal, Gunner goes for the
kill on Idol… only to relent… and grab Jessica Darlin instead! Piledriver position on Darlin, her skirt falling to her head - exposing her thong!
Austin Idol looks up and pleads with Gunner to relent! But he doesn’t! BAM! He drives Darlin into the mat with a piledriver! Gunner quickly flees
while Austin Idol dives to Darlin’s side! He is aghast and ENRAGED over Gunner’s actions! But Gunner is remorseless, smiling cruelly… he grabs a
house mic to rub salt further into the wound - and UP their ante of their PPV match.. Phil “Gunner” Shatter is the “Universal Soldier” and there can
be only one! “LAST MAN STANDING” MATCH! In his rage, Idol accepts! It’s going to be a WAR @ “Baptized in Blood 2”!!
Austin Idol (1982) versus Phil "Gunner" Shatter (2013)
PG-13 on the Titan Tron show off their new attitude.
MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS versus PG-13
The now-unbelievably braggadocios, insanely-annoying, “Malibu’s Finest” x10 version of PG-13 make their entrance first… full wigger swagger… brief
promo recapping their beat down of JTG and reiterating their new mission statement of being taken seriously (see XPW Online #19)… their magnum opus
is greeted by MACHINE GUN FIRE and the blazing, pyrotechnic entrance of the MCMG!! All action - non stop… PG-13 get a few sleazy offensive spots,
but it’s mostly all Sabin & Shelley… tag team wrestling clinic… a series of coordinated strikes and synchronized dives eject Wolfie D from the ring
and lock JC Ice Baby in a crazy submission hold for the finish… JC Ice Baby can’t tap fast enough… big statement win for the MCMG, heading into
their world title match @ “BiB2”…
But in the midst of their victorious celebration, the MCMG are interrupted by “Wild” Red Berry striding out onto the entrance ramp… the manager
extraordinaire has some choice (encyclopedic) words for the MCMG… very disparaging and insulting… but of course it’s just a set up - getting Sabin &
Shelley so heated over his inflammatory words that they don’t even notice the FabKangs rushing them from the rear (through the crowds)… wearing their
Australian street clothes (including funny hats and stylish boots) the FabKangs run a number on Sabin & Shelley climaxing in the FabKangs modified
version of a 3D (the last one driving Sabin THROUGH Shelley who was resting on a table)… FabKangs & Berry pose and hold up their title belts, while
Sabin & Shelley writhe in pain amidst the wreckage of a smashed table… FabKangs are serenaded with boos and pelted with trash as they pull the old
“Please remain silent for the [insert random foreign] national anthem” bit to end the segment…
BAM BAM BIGELOW (w/ Wild Red Berry) versus TOMMASO CIAMPA
The ring stay lay in shambles – a reminder of the attack from the previous segment… destroyed table debris and rubble everywhere… in the middle
of the madness stands “Wild” Red Berry, like a maestro of mayhem… behind him his giant “Beast from the East” stalks the ring like an animal… Berry
brags about this tag team champion FabKAngs, and his ruthless mercenary Bam Bam Bigelow!
BAM BAM BIGELOW:
I like to beat up on people! Lucky for me, I’ve always been able to get paid for doing it! And in XPW Remixed I get paid really big bucks
just for slapping punks around! I think that is the best of all worlds!
Open challenge… cut to brief video vignette in the back… the dark, shadowy recesses of the backstage entrance ramp – Tommaso Ciampa is gathered
there beside Olympia trainee Alexxis Neveah (who appears to be attempting to tearfully convince him NOT to go)… quick words with William Muldoon who
looks Ciampa dead in the eye and tells him he doesn’t have to do this… but Ciampa’s face remains stoic as he shrugs Muldoon and Nevaeh off and storms
through the entrance curtains to answer Berry’s challenge… Bam Bam Bigelow takes him down with a trash can to start… the Xtremity continues with
such off-the-wall weaponry as mailboxes, ironing boards, cookie sheets, hockey sticks, fire extinguishers, and cups of beer being used… Random “XPW!
XPW!” and “BAM BAM!” chants from the crowd… the other half of the time, the audience is busy hissing at Wild Red Berry and serenading him with boos…
A table was brought in, which Wild Red Berry gleefully directs Bam to drive Ciampa through… Alexxis Nevaeh came into the ring, to protect her brother
Tommaso Ciampa from going through the table – but Wild Red Berry shoved Alexxis Nevaeh out of the way and BROKE his cane over Tommaso Ciampa’s skull!!
Another table was brought in, with Bam Bam teasing putting Alexxis through it… Wild Red Berry threw in a roll of athletic tape to Bam Bam Bigelow
(the sadistic intentions clear, as Bam Bam backs up the diminutive Nevaeh)… Out of seemingly nowhere, Alexxis Nevaeh unleashed a BLAST from a fire
extinguisher to Bigelow’s FACE! She escapes, but Tommaso Ciampa does not… he struggles to fight back, but the cane shot was debilitating... a
concussive series of headbutts from Bigelow fells Ciampa; laying him out on the table… Bam Bam Bigelow hits a flying headbutt off the top rope
(THROUGH Ciampa and the table) for the definitive pinfall… Bam Bam Bigelow & Wild Red Berry pose… Alexxis Neveah tends to Ciampa post match…
“Real Deal” Damien Steele enters (w/ secretary Jasmin St Claire)… Paul Bowser may have made the management decision to decide the XPW
Commissioners office @ BiB2... But for now, Steele still has the book - and that’s the “real deal”… he references the past segment, and says if the
Olympia (Muldoon's camp including Nevaeh & Ciampa) want to continue interfering in matches, they will pay the price... Alexxis Nevaeh TONIGHT
you will meet a DEBUTING FORCE in XPW Remixed! And Steele's ppv opponent at BiB2 (“Solid Man” William Muldoon) can’t compete for the
commissioners office title if he never makes the show! That’s why Damien Steele is ordering him to compete right HERE TONIGHT! Or risk forfeit of
his PPV match!
Enter “Solid Man” William Muldoon, proud wrestler and head coach of the Olympia fight camp… he addresses Steele on the mic from the ramp - this isn’t
just a battle between NY/MA & CA… it’s a battle between filth & decency! Speaking of filth, introducing Muldoon’s opponent tonight - who surprises
him from behind with a FORK-assisted sneak attack!
Reintroducing ABDULLAH the BUTCHER!!
WILLIAM MULDOON versus ABDULLAH the BUTCHER (Street Fight)
Abdullah the Butcher beats William Muldoon in under 4 minutes - finishing with his massive elbow drop. William Muldoon was flung from pillar to post,
and bled heavily from the forehead (with Abdullah’s horrific stabs and slices never seeming to cease)… “Real Deal” Damien Steele finished the segment
by holding up Muldoon’s bloody face to threaten him personally - before hitting the “Real Deal” swinging neck breaker (on a chair) to leave Muldoon
lying… Steele says he can’t wait to serve as Commissioner under the new Black Army reign…
Still on the scene, the power-mad Commissioner Damien Steele continues to hold court in the ring… he bids good riddance to William Muldoon
(stretchered out of the arena, as Alexxis Neveah tearfully clutches his hand)… before seguing into a rant against Sid Vicious… after some smarky,
insider lingo he kind of leads you to believe there was some backstage financial dispute or something between XPW Remixed & Vicious, which is why
Damien Steele had Sid FIRED! (news to us!) He’s about to release Sid’s personal cell phone number to the crowd, when secretary Jasmin St Claire draws
his attention to Alexxis Neveah (supporting her coach William Muldoon)… Steele turns his attention to Alexxis, and offers up that “DEBUTING FORCE” he
was talking about earlier…
Introducing AWESOME KONG(wrestling debut!!)
ALEXXIS NEVEAH versus... AWESOME KONG! (debut!!)
About what you would expect: Awesome Kong demolition. Here's video footage of a real-live Alexxis Nevaeh (aka "Mercedes Steele") squash
against Awesome Kong from TNA TV...
Winner: AWESOME KONG
and oh look, there's even an imposter Raisha Saeed (as every smart fan knows the original girl under the hood - Cheerleader Mellissa -
recently signed with Eco's ROH)... but wait a minute!?!? Just who IS that imposter Saeed after all??
Wendi Richter has finally answered Kong's challenge! She will put her XPW Remixed Woman's championship on the line @ "Baptized in
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
XPW Remixed Woman’s champion Wendi Richter is backstage, when she runs into frequent foe Annie Social… confrontation seems imminent… especially when
the mean, nasty Natalya Neidhart saunters into the scene as well… followed by Sunny (!?) but instead of an ambush, there is a begrudging respect and
mutual realization – Awesome Kong is bad news… if anybody’s got a chance to derail that steam engine – it’s the “Queen of Rock-n-Roll” Wendi Richter…
the girls offer their support and well-wishes to Richter (who seems genuinely touched) in her PPV title defense against Kong!!
Video footage of Great Gama’s historic (and legendary) display of “Hindu Push-ups”… similar to Bob Backlund’s astounding step program – or the
Iron Sheik dazzling us with Persian clubs – or other extreme measures of human fitness – all interspersed with footage of Great Gama’s run in XPW
Remixed (he was awoken from his fantasy wrestling slumber by the evil Jinder Mahal, before being manipulated and betrayed – his legendary undefeated
streak broken at Mahal’s hand)… now, instead of slinking into the shadows of the past and disappearing forever, Great Gama has RETURNED and the
vengeance he seeks against Mahal is TREMENDOUS… Great Gama is looking for Jinder Mahal… and with that destruction he can find his own
** FADE OUT **
"Best of 7 FINALE"
"Best of 7" series video vignette - focusing on the blood feud between Samoa Joe & Bruno Sammartino that has been raging... Video recap
of Match #6 (that ended with a Sammartino win – but Joe threw Bruno down two flights of stairs)… now we’re not sure of Sammartino’s medical
condition, or if he can show up for Match #7 @ “BiB2”… Samoa Joe is in the XPW President’s office – ostensibly to face a fine and/or punishment for
his gregarious actions… but instead of Ed “Strangler” Lewis in the president’s chair, around spins VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt… he doesn’t punish Samoa
Joe at all; instead slyly giving him props for displaying a “viciousness” and “attitude”… if Bruno Sammartino can’t make it the PPV – then Samoa Joe
will win by forfeit! But if he DOES show up, Mister Mondt has just the stipulation to keep that old mutt down... a dog-collar match! Mister Mondt
stretches out the thick cord of chain tethered to a set of tattered leather dog collars… brutality at its finest… Joe seizes the chain in his hands
and nods in agreement… finally – perhaps for the first time ever in XPW Remixed – Samoa Joe smiles…
** SEGUE **
BRUNO SAMMARTINO: Here in Pittsburgh before I became a wrestler, I was doing amateur wrestling then but I was a construction worker. I was an
apprentice carpenter making $2 an hour. You have to understand that this is going back to like 1956, or something like that. I was a real young guy,
the carnival was in town and they had a wrestling monkey and they said if you could last five minutes with the monkey, they would give you $25. Well
you know when you’re working for $2 an hour, $25 for five minutes sounded like a lot of money to me. So I took on the challenge and I fought that
orangutan for fifteen minutes and I have to be real honest with you. I got the worst of that fight in that cage. The monkey won I think, because
when I came out I was marked up a heck of a lot more than that monkey was. We were building the Hilton hotel here in Pittsburgh, it must have been
about 300 guys and they all came over to watch and they were all rooting me on. But that orangutan, I’ll tell you what I have never seen anything so
powerful. I tried to get behind it, you know like an amateur move thinking that maybe I could get him off of those bars and get him down on the
floor. But when I finally got behind him, that thing was swinging around the cage like it had a flea on its back. I was like 265-270 pounds,
unbelievable strength those things have and it was a big orangutan too, believe me that thing was big. The cage wasn’t that big, it displayed its
strength, and I got beat up pretty good. Wrestling Samoa Joe is just like fighting that orangutan… and at “Baptized in Blood 2” - Samoa Joe will
be the one being caged! I WILL BE THERE TO END THIS BLOOD FEUD ONCE AND FOR ALL!!
Sick music video hype for this years Tournament of Death... a once-a-year spectacle so great, so perverse, it drew with it some of the darkest spirits
in the entire Fantasy Wrestling genre... Rob Black and John Zandig. Zandig - the godfather of CZWO ("Combat Zone Wrestling Originals") stormed
into XPW Remixed - cultivated two former enemies/turned converts in Messiah & Sami Callihan - and laid seige to this years tourney... John Zandig is
personally offended that the ToD crown - and KotDM championship - have come to the West Coast and he aims to reclaim it for the East by any means
...speaking of the East, on the flip side of the coin you have Onita's dark coalition with the Black Army - he's using the Devilish
hellspawn JUN KASAI to conduct his evil bidding and bring the Tod & KotDM back to JAPAN! Meanhile, back home in America - "Sick" Nick Mondo
(constantly tormented by the demons of his past) has embraced his destiny... "Sick" Nick Mondo has vowed to keep the Tod trophy and KotDM
belt from either side... "Sick" Nick Mondo knows what he must do @ BiB2... to redeem himself, but also save the KotDM championship &
TOD... He promises to die a martyr and take the ToD cup & KotDM Belt to hell with him!..

thus-far-missing) ECW Icon SANDMAN! New Jack gives you his word THEY WILL BE THERE @ ToD!! The Revolution continues at “Baptized in Blood 2!”
** CUT TO RING **
DANNY HAVOC versus SABU (Xtreme Rulez Death Match)
”Baptized in Blood 2” preview, with this being the advertised “Death Match” appetizer for the night… extra attention is paid to Sabu’s wild, unhinged
antics as of late (like he’s lost his mind in XPW Remixed with nobody to control him)… Sabu beat Havoc once before (see XPW TV Episode #29) – and
tagged with him (unannounced) on XPW Online #19, before jumping him after the match when they lost… hence the need for a “Death Match” showdown
tonight… Announcers summarize this years “Tournament of Death” story arc – with the KotDM title also being up for grabs… CZWO think the ToD belongs
on the East coast and have arrived to retake it by force… Tonight, Danny Havoc continues to play ultraviolent underground fan favorite, and takes a
series of wicked, extreme bumps throughout the course of the match (really putting over Sabu’s offense)… competitive squash, with Havoc coming close
a few times – but Sabu is too much… Arabian Facebuster (steel-chair assisted) through a table to Danny Havoc on the floor! “XPW! XPW!” Postmatch,
XPW security enter the ring with medical gloves, Tasers, a gurney and straight jacket… Sabu is forced into the strait jacket and strapped to the
upright medical gurney to be wheeled out of the arena (and on to the next show like a traveling circus freak)… straight ECW 1993 shit.
Ad Santel, Tamina & the USO’s backstage in the Cali Crippler locker room… Ad Santel clearly wants to teach Mildred Burke a lesson himself, but
refuses to out of simple sexism… Uso’s get some flavor as wise-cracking, hood smart tough guys and Tamina gets the call-up to action tonight… time
to show the world what the “sport” of professional wrestling is all about – crippler style…
** CUT TO RING **
TAMINA (w/ Ad Santel) versus MILDRED BURKE (w/ Miz)
Mildred Burke enters first, and has the “Depression-era, never-say-die, underdog” image down pat… she’s fighting for her literal livelihood every
time she steps into the ring (ever since her iron clad contract forbidding matches with other females)… now keep in mind this little caveat applies
only to “sanctioned” matches, which is why Burke has contested Chyna in the past – or why she is about to compete in this match now. So technically
she CAN compete against other woman during her year ban… but she certainly can’t compete for the XPW Woman’s championship… that’s the crux of her
contractual impairment right there… Ad Santel & Tamina enter second, and for all intents and purposes it was originally supposed to be Ad Santel
scheduled to take this match –but the extreme backlash from that decision forced him to reconsider (no doubt also a little fear in Santel’s heart
about possibly losing to Burke)… much highlight reel attention is paid to Mildred Burke’s remarkable triangle choke on Santel (during the War Games
match @ “Scene of the Crime”) that made the Cali Crippler reluctantly “tap out”… so instead of facing the intense crowd heat and competing tonight,
Ad Santel shepherds his trainee Tamina into action (more video footage of Santel & Tamina jumping Mildred Burke on XPW Online #19)… Thankfully the
wolf pack mentality is derailed by the strains of “AWWWEEEESSSOOOOMMEEE!!” breaking through the arena soundsystem – enter MIZ!
He cuts Ad Santel to ribbons on the mic; 2012-style, and takes up sides with Mildred Burke in this battle… the results are elementary… Miz keeps his
eye on Santel at ringside, while the girls put on a wrestling clinic… Burke overcomes Tamina’s strength advantage with technical skill, and winds up
with a version of the omaplata/Hells Gate/Triangle choke for the tap-out victory!
Winner (by submission): MILDRED BURKE
Post match, Miz keeps Ad Santel at bay to celebrate with Burke… a bitter, vindictive Santel mistimes a sneak attack attempt – gets SOCKED in the
eye by Burke (!) and falls right into a Skull-Crushing Finale from MIZ! Tamina runs right into a samoan drop from Burke and she’s out of the ring
too! Miz & Mildred Burke leave their opponents flustered and embarrassed… on their way up the ramp, an angry Ad Santel grabs a house mic and makes
his challenge – he’s sick of amateur, MTV-inspired antics and wants a piece of MIZ @ “BiB2”… “Sportz (Ad Santel) versus Entertainment (Miz)” match!
AD SANTEL (1922) versus MIZ (2012)
”Sportz vs Entertainment” Match!

FOCUS presents: “Open Mic Challenge”
Glamorous, humorous montage sketch of reigning XPW TV champion Gorgeous George (and his Focus entourage, including David Otunga & GG) out and about

”Interview with Mr. Perfect”
REPORTER: Mr Perfect! Mr Perfect! What on earth made you decide to come to XPW Remixed for it's biggest show of the year??
MR. PERFECT: Being the real world’s champion, I, Mr. Perfect, see a lot of things here. First off, I think the editors of this rag gave their
readers the royal shaft. That’s right. You guys talked to Lou Thesz & Sheamus and got half the story on Baptized in Blood 2… Well
now, Mr. Perfect’s gonna give you the whole story.
REPORTER: How do you think you'll be received in XPW Remixed? And by the challenger Sheamus (2012) and champion Lou Thesz (1952)?
MR. PERFECT: You people will be privileged to see me, Mr. Perfect, standing right by the real world’s champions’s side. Speaking about the
real world’s champion, Mr. Perfect would like to expound his virtues a little bit more… Mr. Perfect would like to take this time and let everybody
know what kind of a man that is....
REPORTER: What are your thoughts on the men you'll be officiating at "BiB2"?
MR. PERFECT:Lou Thesz is an athlete’s athlete. He’s a role model for all the stinking kids in this world. Sheamus always
plays by the rules and always gives his opponent a fair chance - much like Mr. Perfect. For instance, when I was the Intercontinental champion - the
perfect Intercontinental champion, mind you - I displayed the same kind of sportsmanship as the real world’s champion. That is why Ed “Strangler”
Lewis selected me to be his special referee & BiB2.
REPORTER: Any final words for XPW Remixed and the Territory Wars?
MR. PERFECT: I know a lot of you people don’t like to hear Mr. Perfect talk every week… well that’s just too bad! The fact of the matter is,
Mr. Perfect is in demand! Look at me. I am a perfect wrestler, a perfect announcer, and in the coming weeks, I’ll even be a perfect referee.

“Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers cuts a quick, angry promo for the camera - $100k wasn’t enough and now the losing team at “Baptized in Blood 2” must
disband! The Dynasty only takes sure bets and at the PPV – New Age Outlaws are going out of business! Morgan & Riley finish the beat down by
spraypainting “DD” (for “Diamond Dynasty”) sort of like the old DX crews used to do. Morgan & Riley are ready for the New Age Outlaws @ “BiB2”.
FRENCH ANGEL & HUMAN TORNADO (w/ Paul Bowser)
JON MOXLEY & KILO (w/ Rob Black)
Preview match for “BiB2” and last big hard sell of the PPV… Rob Black enters first to introduce Moxley & Kilo personally… more vulgar threats and
promises of fantasy wrestling usurpation… Black gives Bowser & crew one last chance to submit and bow down… Carl Beane is dead (see XPW Online #19)…
Logan Boggs is in the hospital (see XPW TV Episode #45)… tonight – if you got the GUTS to show up, Bowser – you’ll be next! Never the less, the
valiant Paul Bowser & troops ride in like the cavalry to defend the honor of ALL fantasy wrestling fans and purists… the man-monster French Angel
(alongside the dainty, delectable Sammi Lane) and the hot-stepping, pimp-strutting Human Tornado… match itself is a great sneak preview of the action
you’ll see at BiB2… Tornado styles – French Angel turns into the “Abyss” of fantasy wrestling (Xtreme ferocity) – Kilo is immune to pain – Jon Moxley
is the evil captain of this ship… of course nothing is resolved, as all Hell breaks loose between all 4 men – necessitating a match stoppage… The
real action unfolds after the bell tolls…
Winners: NONE (no finish)
”The Prince of Darkness” Kevin Sullivan leads his monster SNUFF on a killing rampage! Fellow Black Army cohort and Xtreme delegate Onita rolls
into combat alongside his mercenary ninja assassin HAKUSHI KURO! But just as the tide of darkness is swelling in the entrance ramp (with throngs of
XPW security & off-duty officers to add to the chaos) – a huge BLAST of pyro & confetti suddenly goes off! There! Right on top of the giant “XPW”
letters! Sailing through the pyro smoke & sparks like a giant bird of prey! The masked marvel MIL MASCARAS leaps from the top of the entrance ramp
letters with another one of his trademark cross body dives! Poetry in motion, as Mil Mascaras crashes down on EVERYBODY - taking them out like rows
of dominoes! “XPW! XPW!”
Now Paul Bowser takes direction of the madness and calls out Rob Black on the mic… the “Baptized in Blood” Survivor Series match is definitely going
down, just like the Black Army! Because B&B&B Enterprises partner LOGAN BOGGS called in one last favor from his hospital bed… somebody to aid Triple
B in their PPV match…
Ladies and gentleman, introducing to XPW Remixed…
The only WWE title holder to appear on TNA Television… and now, the only TNA champion to appear on XPW Remixed TV…
CHRISTIAN: Yeah, I was the first person he called after he got the news (about the injury). It was one of those things where I had to listen
and be there for him... I could tell he was upset about it once it sunk in. I told him that if was writing the end to his story, this was the
perfect way to finish it off, just winning the biggest show of the year... You can’t write a better ending than that. I will be there at
"Baptized in Blood 2" fighting alongside Triple B Enterprises for the good of all fantasy wrestling!

XPW TV Episode #46 (Happy 4th of July)
A fleet of luxury cars rolls into the building as the Black Army arrives… Rob Black is loud, belligerent, chauvinistic and antagonistic as
they all make their way into the building and announce their presence… Rob Black meets with Ed Lewis & Toots Mondt and mentions something about an
idea he had for the XPW World championship… Lewis & Mondt allude to that being the exact reason they considered Black’s bid so strongly… all three
men disappear behind a locked conference room door to discuss it further…
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
Epic-level video recap of the groundbreaking events at “Baptized in Blood 2”… the very foundation of XPW Remixed was rocked that night, and the new
direction of the company is clearly apparent… right down the toilet! HUGE fan backlash over the decision to put Rob Black’s Army over Team B&B&B
(riding an emotional high into the PPV)… conspiracy theories abound, and while Bowser & Boggs have remained mum on the situation thus far – they
promise to address all the rumors later… but for now – Dark days ahead for the talent of XPW Remixed as the Black Army officially signs their
contract and takes power today. What kind of demented changes will Rob Black implement into the product? Well for starters, we have a very special
“All American Girlz” Glory Hole challenge scheduled for tonight! Plus news on “Sick” Nick Mondo’s shocking win (and immediate disappearance), former
tag team partners Ruckus & Sabian clash for the 1st time in company history, and a rematch for the XPW Remixed Tag Team titles! All that and more
TONIGHT! Stay tuned!
"Sick" Nick Mondo took the Tod2 trophy & KotDM belt with him back to the bowels of HELL.
Arena house lights darkened for a sick video recap/music video of "Sick" Nick Mondo's voyage towards embracing ultra-violence and
sacrificing himself to prevent twin evil empires from seizing their goal... he may have relinquished the "King of the Death Match" strap into the
abyss (where it may yet rise again)... but the "Tournament of Death 2" trophy forever belongs to HIM and nobody can take that away...
CUT! House lights brighten! We have an interuption! Enter new 1/3 partner in XPW Remixed - ROBERT BLACK! And his Black Army!
Rob Black and his Army enter the arena to start the show… flanked by a bunch of prostitute/escort/porn starlets, he and his troops (including Jack
Pfefer, Kevin Sullivan & Atsushi Onita) cut an intimidating (and loathsome) sight… he takes the mic for an opening promo, and has to pause to let the
“U SUCK D***” and “ROB BLACK SUCKS” chants subside… is this high-quality, Vicky Guerrero-level heel heat? Or “XPac heat”? Jury’s still out… Rob
Black gloats about his team’s victory @ “BiB2” because “I TOLD U!!” Nobody could top the Black Army’s offer because their main source of revenue
never shrinks… PORNOGRAPHY… in fact it only grows… god bless America.
ROB BLACK: First, it provides the money for us to venture into other things. And I think the porn aspect opened a lot of doors ... if you
just strip it down for what it is, meaning entertainment. So you deal with a lot of the same people that a straight-to-video release would deal with,
whether it's the mom-pop video stores or the chain stores. We basically deal with everybody except Blockbuster. The nastiest? Probably ... we
do a series called "Cocktails" -- it's pretty repugnant. Girls have sex by a couple guys, and the guys and the girl, they have sex with her,
and she's giving fellatio and she's hacking up boogies in a bowl. And they're spitting in the bowl. And then she'll think
she's vomiting in the bowl, and at the end they come in the bowl. And then she drinks it all down. That's pretty repugnant. (Laughs)
Sometimes we do a fellatio line, where the girl's giving fellatio, and she's gagging so much she vomits. ... It's repugnant. It
Rob Black goes on to talk about the things his dirty money have bought - including his freedom (from prison), stake in XPW Remixed, and now - he
gestures towards "Prince of Darkness" Kevin Sullivan, who removes something from a large black bag (tha snakes were seen slithering in)... it is a
NEW "KotDM" belt! A hand-crafted, special edition title belt bought with porn money and ready to display to the masses!
Enter the opposing army - some rappelling in like special ops on their way to kill Obama - others hurtling guard rails like track stars with hunting
knives clenched in their teeth - all wearing the same gang colors - CZWO.
The CZWO go on a tear - shredding the ringside area and battling with security and Black Army associates... Absolute anarchy has befallen XPW Remixed
arena… Rob Black is protected in the center of the ring, but it’s clear Zandig and troops want his blood… a real life bi-coastal WAR has broken
loose! Zandig is being restrained but is bellowing about the disrespect Rob Black is showing Mondo’s sacrifice… Zandig says only he knows where the
KotDM championship artifact now rests… with police sirens blaring and mass confusion, it looks like we may be SHUTTING THE SHOW down tonight before
it even starts! A near-riot ensues! Thankfully, a voice of reason cuts over the house mic to help quell the madness…
New XPW Remixed Commissioner “The Solid Man” William Muldoon!!
Rob Black acts all happy to see his new “partner”, but Muldoon makes it CLEAR they are not associates whatsoever… Muldoon has his own job to do
and it means not letting this land devolve into lawlessness and anarchy… the source of contention between these two warring tribes is the “King of
the Death Match” championship (if only all Middle East conflicts could be summarized so succinctly)… Muldoon recognizes this, and lest the entire
company be destroyed by this blood feud - he orders a finish. Black Army vs CZWO one more time, in a match they should be familiar with (but brand
new to XPW Remixed)... the CAGE OF DEATH!!
CZWO vs Black Army!
"CAGE OF DEATH" match for control of the KotDM Championship!
Former XPW Remixed Tag Team champions torn apart… jealousy appears to be the root cause – Sabian always takes things so seriously, and Ruckus not so
much… bringing the big man Michael Tarver into the mix only made things more volatile… Sabian & Tarver refused to believe Ruckus when he had things
handled, and instead found themselves defeated and forced to renouncement the “BLKOUT” colors… then they watched Ruckus get handed TV title
opportunity after TV title opportunity… and they didn’t like it. So they struck (see XPW TV Episode #45). Now after weeks of underground trash talk,
the two fierce rivals are set to square off… they’re first match is good… very good… but you can tell it’s just a teaser of things to come…
Sabian is the arrogant, annoying (sexual harassing) little miscreant and Ruckus the crowd-pleasing, smoked out, High Times hero… but it’s summer 2012
real time now, and in the fantasy wrestling spectrum Sabian has found his stock risen to an all-time new high… Sabian appeared on the June 22nd 2012
episode of Friday Night Smackdown, and followed that up with a win in TNA Impact Wrestling on June 28th 2012… he puts Ruckus futuristic offense over
good tonight, but it’s partner Michael Tarver (and their new NON-BLKout affiliated gang colors) that helps Sabian to a victory... Michael Tarver
catches Ruckus with a KO punch as he was bounding off the ropes for a springboard move… Ruckus crashed backwards to the mat, and was crushed by a
BLKJeez double footstomp off the top rope from Sabian…
** CUT **
**BACKSTAGE SKIT #1
Dean Ambrose with Rob Black in the Black Army war room… he was the sole survivor @ “BiB2” and the reason the Black Army stands so strong… he will be
rewarded for his service starting tonight… “Gold Assassins” 6-man tag team match… Dean Ambrose and 2 other #1 contenders will team up to face the
top 3 singles champions in XPW Remixed tonight in a 6-man tag team match… if a challenger beats a champion to end the match, they receive a future
title shot against said champion… Dean Ambrose doesn’t really like the idea of having to share the spotlight again, but agrees when Black convinces
him it’s ‘best for the business’…
** 6 man “Gold Assassins” Tag Team match tonight! **
[color=limegreen]Special attraction “Flag Match” next, in the spirit of 4th of July… Weedman gets his dynamic entrance draped in Americana (in a
slightly controversial manner, if you consider the context and content)… He marches to the ring like Corporal Kirchner (he’s still alive) and salutes
the fighting forces, both here in the arena and abroad… this is clearly going to be a light-hearted exhibition that relies more on “entertainment”
than “sportz”… until Jinder Mahal’s music hits. Then the mood changes… Jinder on the mic – dissects Weedman (and in turn the entire plant-puffing
XPW Remixed live audience) – and in turn all of America – before challenging Weedman to fly that flag in his face… stone cold intimidation from the
much larger, sleeker Jinder Mahal… but it’s calmly answered by a puff of Grade-A premium American homegrown from Weedman for the defiant “FU”… crowd
loves it… But Mahal no-sells that… and absolutely murders Weedman. High impact offense, Muay-Thai knees, Cross arm-breaker into triangle choke…
Mahal grabs another one of Weedman’s nearby flags (this one emblazoned with a pot leaf insignia) and BREAKS it over Weedman’s rising back! He tosses
the broken flagpole to the side disrespectfully, and locks Weedman in a camel clutch! He gives up!
Winner (by submission): JINDER MAHAL
Big time boos as Jinder Mahal sets up for a post-match promo, once again disparaging the set of loose morals on display here, when suddenly –
through the crowd we have a violent distraction – a “fan” is trying to rush the ring and security is holding him back… in true Dudley Boyz 98 style,
Jinder Mahal starts taunting and antagonizing the fan further (from the safety of the ring of course), until cameras catch a peek at the assailants
face… it’s the GREAT GAMA! Banned from the building, he’s left a wake of devastation on his way to breaking in! He wants Jinder Mahal! Now Mahal’s
face turns slightly fearful, but he won’t drop his façade – he orders security to take him away! Police officers ARREST THAT MAN! Instead, Great
Gama gets a chance to flex a bunch of insane strong man feats – huge metal barricades gets overturned, entire phalanxes of security guards and
off-duty police officers get pitched and tossed (one literally two rows back into the stands), and he KICKS right through the surrounding ring wall!
In his rage, Great Gama hurls a set of steel ring steps like a shot-put, taking out a row of guards as they advanced on him! Crowd going rapid, and
suddenly Jinder Mahal is trapped! But he still somehow manages to weasel his way out of a physical confrontation and flee back to the bowels of the
building! Meanwhile Great Gama has seized the ring and roars his disapproval! He destroys ALL of Jinder Mahal’s ringside accessories! The expensive
coat! The glass case with the head piece in it! His fine wooden staff! Chaos in the ring, as the crowd is chanting “XPW! XPW!”
But the wily Mahal uses Gama’s rampage as a distraction, and sneaks upon his former slave from the rear! Great Gama turns around to meet an ELECTRIC
TAZER to the abdomen! He shakes and twitches violently as Mahal smiles with sick satisfaction… but after a brief sizzling moment, Great Gama no-sells
it! He roars defiantly in Mahal’s face! Crowd cheers! ANOTHER Taser shot to the gut from Mahal! But once again Great Gama no-sells it! But by
now, actual uniformed POLICE OFFICERS have collapsed on Gama’s back too… he pitches them off one-by-one like fleas, but eventually they swallow him
up – and Mahal digs in with an EXTRA long Taser shot (uncomfortably so) right to Great Gama’s NECK! That’s enough to send the strongman to the mat,
convulsing and spitting up with white foam… he quickly taken into custody by police and dragged backstage! Jinder Mahal just sneers and poses for the
** CUT **
**BACKSTAGE SKIT #2
Samoa Joe once again clandestinely meeting with XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt… his brutal victory over Bruno Sammartino @ “BiB2” is reviewed…
Bruno has left to do some soul-searching, so that leaves only one… Mister Mondt also extends the “Gold Assassins” Tag Team offer to Samoa Joe as well
- reward for his Xtreme victory.
** 6 man “Gold Assassins” Tag Team match tonight! **
"REAL DEAL" DAMIEN STEELE (w/ Jasmin St. Claire)
Skits that started throughout the night (depicting Steele's indignant - and comical - reaction to having all this stuff dumped out of the
Commissioner's office in favor of Muldoon's trophies) - ends here with William Muldoon obliging Steele's whispered request to "lay
a whoop ass on some pale Irish skin" (referring to Muldoon, but twisted by the "Solid Man") and assigning him to a match tonight - against SHEAMUS!
About what you'd expect after vignettes and entrances... Sheamus is rightfully PISSED about the ending to his World title match @ BiB2 and
takes it all out on Damien Steele... Wham bam Irish Curse - announcers promise words from Mr. Perfect later in the night - pound the chest - Brogue
Kick. Sheamus does the do. He also grabs the mic to briskly declare his intention to gain an XPW World Title rematch as soon as later tonight.
Sheamus powders out and Damien Steele & Jasmin St Claire run the post-match *BREAK-UP* angle - slapping each other (St Claire winning, and sending
Steele on his ass) before stomping away... he loses the job, the girl and his respect...
** CUT **
**BACKSTAGE SKIT #3
XPW President Ed “Strangler” Lewis meets with RVD… more humorous than the other interludes, with RVD being so calm and cool and “whatever man”, while
Ed Lewis totally misconstrues the “RVD 4:20” references and goes off on hilarious sidebars about highway travels in the old days (while RVD just
shrugs and rolls and his eyes)… bottom line, Ed Lewis is happy to have RVD as the face of XPW Remixed on TV, but RVD is all like, ‘yeah man whatever,
I’m still gonna do things my way”… RVD TV champion will be competing tonight in the “Gold Assassins” Tag match.
KILO & HAKUSHI KURO
HUMAN TORNADO & FRENCH ANGEL (w/ Sammi Lane)
Atushi Onita (evil, Japanese Sandman-version) is the ringside manager for the night… Kilo comes dangerously close to physically threatening the
waaaaaay smaller Sammi Lane on many occasions (driving the usually affable French Angel into a beastly fury)… Hakushi & Human Tornado put on an
aerial/top rope/springboard-laden dog fight that has the fans chanting “XPW! XPW!” and clamoring for more… end comes when the referee seemingly
IGNORES the bad guys double-team to focus on removing Angel from the ring… meanwhile, Hakushi Kuro scores with the BLACK MIST to Human Tornado’s
face! Followed by a sick fat-guy Michinoku Driver from Kilo for the pin! Referee gladly holds the Black Army associates arms in the air in
Winners: KILO & HAKUSHI KURO
Meanwhile post match, Sammi Lane is arguing with the referee about the missed call - when once again Kilo creeps up on her with a bugged-out,
dangerous look in his eye… but thankfully we get the theme song for new XPW Commissioner WILLIAM MULDOON! He’s the lone gunman ready to instill
law-and-order in a Wild West town, so he has another official decree… as coach of the Olympia fight camp he is bound to finish what he started - and
that is Hakushi Kuro! Former pupil turned traitor, who defeated William Muldoon in singles combat before (putting a black mark of shame upon him)!
Now Hakushi Kuro is in step with the Black Army and the evil Astushi Onita… for shame. William Muldoon challenges Hakushi Kuro to a match at “Liberty
or Death”! Crowd cheers! “One More Match!“ chant erupts… But Muldoon is answered by a vengeful Onita on the mic, who accepts the challenge (on
Hakushi Kuro’s behalf) but ups the ante considerably - if Muldoon wins he avenges his honor… but if he LOSES Atsushi Onita will become the official
XPW Remixed commissioner! How bad do you want it?? William Muldoon’s manhood is on the line and he accepts!
Taz addresses the blackout he sustained in the "BiB2" elimination tag when he choked out his own partner Christian Cage... he's also brought
with him a championship belt he's dubbed "FTW" (a state of mind) and has some very personal words for none other than VKMJR & RAVP! The
summer is already starting to heat up, boyz!
American-themed, Playboy bunnies abound for the next segment… SUNNY is in the ring with an announcement… she has been given the honor tonight of
celebrating Independence Day, XPW-Remixed style by announcing the a new product - available for retail sale in two weeks -
** XPW presents… “The WOMAN of XPW REMIXED!”
Just in time for the holidays, an all-babe themed issue featuring all your favorite XPW Remixed hotties! And even better - Sunny has the news on who
has been named the Cover Girl for this very special project… it’s clear Sunny knows it’s HER name in the envelope, but she makes a big mock-surprised
act none the less… she’s just about to reach into the envelope and grab the name - when ANNIE SOCIAL’s theme song interrupts us!
The North Killadelphia Hood chick enters the arena totally bad-ass, dressed like late 90’s Lita (with the cargo pants and tank top) and gets a huge
pop… she’s just as sexy and sassy as Sunny (as she is quick to remind her) but MUCH more tougher! She’s nose to nose to Sunny and explains how HER
definition of an XPW Remixed Diva is much different than Sunny and the Black Army‘s view… (it involves fighting for yourself and getting up off your
back - not spreading your legs! Annie Social says to a big pop) Sunny & Social keep jawing at each other until the crowd drives them into performing
a competitive strip tease (won by Social much to Sunny’s chagrin)… but before Annie Social can remind us all of what happened at last year’s “Damage
Inc” PPV (ask Rav-P and the FCC) MUCH to the crowds satisfaction… we have another theme song interruption…
Enter Phil “Gunner” Shatter (2013) & Jessica Darlin (2001)!!
The newly-minted heel duo swagger to the ring and quickly take it over on the stick… if any bitch around her is gonna be the FACE of XPW Remixed’s
Divas (and the new “Woman of XPW Remixed” magazine/blu-ray/DVD)… it’s gonna be the Queen of Xtreme JESSICA DARLIN!! Gunner casually disrespects the
anonymous body-painted hoes (knocking one on her ass) but he can’t do that shit to Annie Social!… She bodies right up to Gunner (showing how
diminutive she really is) shouting right in his face… but he just gives a sick smirk and GRABS her by her hair! But before any damage can be done… we
get our final theme song interruption - enter XPW Remixed President Ed “Strangler” Lewis… he quells the commotion and makes the judicial
1) Since Gunner wants action, he’s got it - next week on XPW TV he goes one-on-one with MIL MASCARAS (1975)!
2) In honor of Independence Day, it’s a month long celebration in XPW Remixed… starting with the “Woman of XPW Remixed” special issue - and climaxing
at “Give Me Liberty or Death PPV” with a live Bikini-Match showdown… featuring:
And the COVER-GIRL of the new “Woman of XPW Remixed” special issue…
The announcement sets off a firestorm of action! Sunny is PISSED over the announcement! Annie Social & Sunny get into a clothes-tearing cat
fight! Gunner throws Darlin by the hair like an animal down on top of them! 3-way cat fight! "XPW! XPW!"
Rematch from the PPV... picks up where the last one left off, with action galore - the FabKangs bigger and stronger, but the MCMG just one unified
blur... Wild Red Berry tries to interfere but gets double-dropkicked for the effort... Berry henchman Bam Bam Bigelow comes out down to the ring to
protest, and winds up distracting the ref... allowing FabKang #1 Al Costello to SMASH a Fosters Beer Bottle over Chris Sabin's head! KO! Uh
oh! The referee is just about to count the pinfall... when he's pulled out of the ring by "Road Dogg" Jesse James!?!?
Winner (by DQ): FABULOUS KANGAROOS
The New Age Outlaw interference gives the FabKangs the match... but it lets MCMG keep the titles... NAO get in a wild brawl with the FabKangs,
clearing them out, before tackling and taking Bam Bam Bigelow out with a double clothesline over the top rope! Outlaws clear the ring and force the
bad guys to retreat... and just as the MCMG are gathering their senses, the NAO pounce on them too! Rocker Dropper legdrop to Shelley from Gunn!
Spinebuster to Sabian from Road Dogg! Grab the mic for the finish! "Ohhhh u didn't KNOW?!?" the New Age Outlaws want an XPW Remixed tag
team title shot!! (big cheers and crowd pleasing, go-home "SUCK IT" segment from the NAO to finish)! Everybody wants a chance at the gold!
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE SKIT **
The Champ JOHN CENA steps in to meet XPW President Ed “Strangler” Lewis, unannounced! Lewis tries to be as accommodating as possible but it’s clear
John Cena sees the “everyman for himself” mentality in operation here… that’s why he’s chosen a new personal advisor to watch his back behind the
scenes - thus finding a permanent place in XPW Remixed for… legendary Boston area promoter PAUL BOWSER… something scandalous is afoot in fantasy
wrestling and Cena needs someone to watch his back for sabotage… starting tonight when John Cena has 3 challengers throwing shots at him in the “Gold
Assassins” tag match…
John Cena & Paul Bowser join forces!
** Gold Assassins 6-man Tag Team match tonight!! **
** CUT **
"A Brutal Beat Down"
[color=limegreen]Backstage footage of emergency personnel and security swarming around a downed wrestler... it's SHEAMUS! He been attacked,
bloodied and left for dead! Debris around the locker room indicates a struggle, and a dented (bloody) chair nearby looks like a murder weapon... its
looks like somebody got to Sheamus before he had a chance to extract his own revenge!! Was it Mr. Perfect? Lou Thesz? Somebody else??
** CUT **
"Mr. Perfect explains his actions @ BiB2"
”Greg Gagne” = Lou Thesz
Hennig is referring to the “slap heard round the Territory Wars”… an incident that occurred backstage AFTER the BiB2 cameras had stopped rolling…
after being struck from behind with his own XPW World Championship belt, Lou Thesz awoke - stormed backstage (and after a brief argument with Toots
Mondt over what happened ) Lou Thesz found Mr Perfect and SLAPPED him! The wrestling death duel declared!
After weeks of hype for this new debuting force… we are greeted with another OG XPW surprise (in the same vein as XPW Original Supreme - whoopee)…
in this case, it’s XPW Original (and Tony Montana rip-off) CARLITO MONTANA! Moderate boos for this one… IF people even care at all, as most seem
disappointed in the grand reveal… Carlito Montana takes the ring for his introductory promo… blah blah blah.. .when all the sudden, he’s interrupted
by the frantic sound of a car horn blaring… and an exotic car rolls out on the entrance ramp… OMGeezy is that..!?!? IT IS!!
Introducing to XPW Remixed ALBERTO DEL RIO!!
What a post-BiB2 surprise! Alberto Del Rio makes the smiling, winking entrance and extends his hand to fellow Mexican superstar Carlito Montana…
only to have Del Rio’s expression darken at the last moment - his smile dropping in favor of a Cartel leader’s sneer… Carlito Montana senses the
shift in alignment but it’s too late… he’s dead on arrival…
Alberto Del Rio dismantles Carlito in a matter of moments, finishing with his devastating Cross Arm Breaker (visibility snapping Montana’s arm at one
point)… the message is clear - in XPW Remixed there will be no imposters.
His name is Alberto Del Rio (but you knew that already)… but what you DON’T know, is why he came…
XPW Remixed World Champion LOU THESZ discussing the Mr. Perfect screwjob @ "BiB2", the "slap heard round the Territory Wars" and the scandalous
new book that's come out detailing the inner workings of the Territory Wars (as provided by the snitch Jack Pfefer, as recently revealed)...
the books title is "Fall Guys"...
LOU THESZ: The book was based in truth, due to Pfefer feeding info to Dan Parker, sports editor of the NY Mirror, and thus to Griffin. Mondt
was a major player behind the scenes of the book. The initial effect of the book was devastating to box office. "Mr. Perfect" Curt Henng for
example... he was a terrific wrestler and great guy. It was a shame to have him suffer financially to feed egos and private wars. The book told
many truths that contradicted other truths. Each of us sees a different picture because we are standing at a different angle. It had little or no
effect on my career. But Hennig, that grevious breach of disrespect you displayed towards me at "BiB2"will be repayed in full...
** CUT TO RING **
LOU THESZ, JOHN CENA & ROB VAN DAM
DEAN AMBROSE, SHANE DOUGLAS & SAMOA JOE
Main event 6-man "Gold Assassins" tag team match... any challenger who pins or submits a champion automatically gets a title shot against them...
if the champs retain they get to pick their own challenger... at first the bad guys work together, but when the stakes get high - individual glory
supercedes all... Shane Douglas argues with Samoa Joe... Dean Ambrose disrespects both of them... meanwhile, RVD elevates himself and Thesz/Cena
display the friction and tension that has been a constant between them during their entire fantasy wrestling careers... In the end, Samoa Joe finally
snaps and attacks his partner Shane Douglas - triggering a wild 3-way brawl between them and John Cena... RVD misses a 5-Star frogsplash attempt off
top as Ambrose rolled away - and answered with a vicious spike DDT that nearly impaled RVD... but before Ambrose could get the pin, he was rolled upon
from the rear by Thesz (the legal man) and trapped in an STF! Dean Ambrose tapped out!!
Winner(s): Lou Thesz, John Cena & RVD
Lou Thesz gets to pick his challenger. He is a fighting champion with a duel to settle! Sheamus, you'll get your rematch free from outside
shenanigans.. but first - LOU THESZ WANTS MR PERFECT ON THE NEXT EPISODE OF XPW TV!! What a huge announcement!

XPW President Ed "Strangler" Lewis is seen in joyous conversation with AWA president Vern Gagne, finishing with a firm
businessman's handshake. Ladies and gentlemen, this is history in the making...
** CUT TO INTRO **
[color=orange]XXXPLOSIVE Developments in XPW Remixed with the recent buy-in of Rob Black and all the new initiatives he's spearheaded
(including the "Woman of XPW Remixed" special coming soon)... and now - XPW President Ed "Strangler" Lewis has come to a co-promotional deal with
Vern Gagne and the AWA to host the biggest cross over title match in TERRITORY WARS HISTORY. More on that historic moment later. But first! Alberto
Del Rio is in XPW Remixed! The CZWO takes on the Shooters Club! And the XPW Remixed Tag Team titles are on the line TONIGHT! The red, white and
blue road to "Give Me Liberty or Death" continues, so let's get right to the action!!!
NEW AGE OUTLAWS
NEW TWIN TOWERS (w/ Wild Red Berry)
New Age Outlaws (1998) opens show – elongated crowd-pleasing entrance… they throw shots @ “Wild” Red Berry on the mic and tell him to “SUCK IT”!...
enter the manager “Wild” Red Berry… encyclopedic rant against the NAO and their ignorant shtick, while touting the brilliance of his men (Fabulous
Kangaroos)… he hypes the whole thing up like they’re about to show up right now and fight the Outlaws – but instead we get Berry’s enforcer team of
Bigelow & Ramos… the FabKangs appear only to assume guest color duty besides Solie & Striker… in ring the New Twin Towers are always impressive, but
the NAO stay resilient… FabKangs hilarious on commentary, disparaging the NAO and clinging to their DQ victory over the current champs MCMG on XPW TV
Episode #46… FabKangs deserve a tag team title rematch, by their logic… but in the ring, NAO prove their championship intent with action... Billy
Gunn hits a Fameasser on Bull Ramos, as Road Dogg holds his foot down from outside the ring... Berry is irrate (ironically) over the same crooked
heelishness he himself had attempted numerous times earlier.
Winners: NEW AGE OUTLAWS
Post match the FabKangs get off commentary to join the 4-on-2 beat down that soon breaks out... the New Twin Towers & the former tag champ
FabKangs are in total control of the Outlaws - until they're saved by XPW Remixed tag team champion MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS! Wearing street
clothes (their tag belts) and using chairs like baseball bats, the smaller MCMG never the less clear the ring with their weaponry and force Red & his
men to retreat... yet when Billy Gunn staggers to his feet inside the ring - the MCMG turn their attention towards him and BLAST his skull with a
twin-chair whack! He goes down, and Alex Shelley holds up his steel chair in Road Dogg's face for Sabin to connect with a roundhouse kick
(chair into Dogg's face) - driving Road Dogg from the ring! MCMG are just repaying the favor the NAO paid them on XPW TV Episode #46! The MCMG
are Tag Team champions and aim to stay that way at "Give Me Liberty or Death"! No matter who the opponent!!
Montage of Xtreme moments, highlights, and finally back-to-back-to-back promos from Douglas, Cena (w/ Paul Bowser) and finally Samoa Joe... each is
demanding respect and all want the prestigious XPW Boston championship for their own... we find out who will be the #1 contender at "Give Me Liberty
or Death", when on the next XPW TV Episode - Shane Douglas takes on Samoa Joe in a #1 Contenders match... with John Cena as special referee! A
special caveat seized by Cena's advisor Paul Bowser! See ya on the road to "Give Me Liberty or Death"!
** CUT **
**BACKSTAGE VIGNETTE **
Backstage locker room skit with steamy (half-naked Jessica Darlin) caught by Mil Mascaras using one of his OWN mask as a cum rag when she finished
her latest scene! Ooo the graphic, vile disrespect from the one they call “Anal Queen” towards the Mexican superstar (and it’s clear why this skit
was cut from TV)! Mil Mascaras stops short of actually harming a woman, but make it’s VERY clear he does not appreciate the disrespect - and he will
be repaying Gunner 2013 for this sin tenfold on the next XPW TV Episode…
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE SKIT **
More off the cuff, street-roaming, “Shoot” video footage of a bombed Sandman leading a semi-”protest” against Xtreme or “Death” match wrestling
(opposing these matches because nobody ever “dies” in them)… he disses New Jack who attacked him @ BiB2 as a washed-up has been dying for no respect…
and if New Jack dare show his face around Sandman again, he’ll show him the meaning of “Xtreme”… we then cut to an answer promo from New Jack
himself… when notified of the Sandman’s statements he flies into a rage, and cuts another angry, militant promo - cursing the Sandman’s very legacy.
New Jack vows Sandman WILL see him again because he’s coming to the next XPW Online to CALL SANDMAN OUT IN PERSON! See if Sandman is man enough to
answer THAT protest call!
SNUFF (w/ Kevin Sullivan) versus KEN PATERA (w/ TGW)
Ken Patera & TGW return to action after being brutally striken from their locker room (TGW now wearing a neck brace) to make this challenge upon their
attacker... "the Prince of Darkness" Kevin Sullivan leads his man-monster Human torture film SNUFF into action... Big man power match with Ken
Patera's olympic strongman feats being used primarily to get Snuff over as a monster (as he shrugs off or matches the output)... But then Snuff
busts out the cruiserweight-like dexterity, with a springboard arm drag off the top rope strand - followed by a huge chokeslam for the pin.
Postmatch Kevin Sullivan and Snuff stalk the wounded (neck brace and all) TGW and are about to corner the manager... when they are struck from
behind by the ORIGINAL SHEIK! FWOOSH! Fireball for Snuff! Fork attack on Kevin Sullivan! Sullivan & Snuff wind up fleeing backstage while TGW
cackles at their misfortune... he's not finished yet - the OG Sheik remains his managerial ace in the hole...
The Sheik will show Snuff the meaning of pain and torture!
WENDI RICHTER & NATALYA NEIDHART
ANNIE SOCIAL & JASMIN ST. CLAIRE
Announcers cover Richter's heartbreaking loss to Kong @ "BiB2" for the title... most of the woman division stands united against Kong, but
once again shows that "anything goes" mentality here tonight... Natalya Neidhart (after stretching Annie Social and smacking Jasmin around a
little) TURNS ON HER PARTNER Wendi Richter and gives her a modified Samoan drop from behind... Nattie smiles, flicks her hair and saunters backstage
(content with her double cross)... meanwhile Annie Social swoops in for the pin on Richter to end the match...
Winners: ANNIE SOCIAL & JASMIN ST CLAIRE
Jasmin celebrates a little too much after the match, taking credit for the victory - so Annie Social gives her a Stone Cold stunner for good
measure (and big pop)! But then we get the ominous entrance theme for AWESOME KONG!
The new XPW Remixed woman's champion makes her way to the ring... now Social & Richter stand united against Kong but it's to no avail.
Kong runs through them quickly and makes another statement. She is the Queen of the XPW Remixed Woman's division - and you will hear her
roar... After Awesome Kong leaves the ring - none other than SUNNY scurries to ringside... and with a digital picture, she takes cute, posey pictures
with a downed and unconcious Wendi Richter/ Annie Social/ Jasmin St Claire... competition for her in the new "Woman of XPW Remixed" issue coming
soon! Sunny would go on to tweet all these obnoxious pictures after the show!
Sunny says she's the face of XPW Remixed's woman's division!
** CUT **
** SABLE IS COMING TO XPW REMIXED!! **
The sizzling wrestling diva fullfills every fans FANTASY @ "Give Me Liberty or Death" when she competes in a 4-way "Bikini Brawl" match! The
claws will be out and the clothes will be off @ "GMLoD"! But first, catch Sable's debut when XPW Remixed drops the special summer edition of
"Women of XPW Remixed"! Coming soon!
Ruckus gets the big time, main event entrance complete with elongated announcer introduction that is a hallmark and fan favorite part of the whole
thing (calling him the “Jake the Snake of getting baked”, “AJ styles of Black-n-Milds” amongst many other witty things)… Tarver is bigger, and cuts a
menacing picture… Ruckus is just as street-savvy and gangsta-made, but his speed, agility and dexterity is beyond compare…
Ruckus is no joke.
Tarver thrashes him around the ring for a bit but soon the dazzling aerial offense of Ruckus comes into play and he pins Tarver with a rolling senton
flip off the top rope. Announcers cover the dissolution of the BLKOut clique on commentary and how Tarver & Sabian have taken their jealousy out on
their former partner. Ruckus rebounds with a victory over Tarver here, but at matches end SABIAN (who just beat Ruckus on XPW TV Episode #46) comes
out to stand at the top of the entrance ramp and stare disapprovingly at Ruckus as he celebrates… clearly their issue has not been put to rest.
Former BLKOut partner SABIAN keeps a close eye on the victorious Ruckus...
** CUT **
"FOCUS on Strike"
The humor continues with another faux "strike" by Gorgeous George, David Otunga & GG (aka "Focus") over the unfortunate loss of Gorgeous
George's TV title @ "BiB2"... the lawyer Otunga is claiming it was not a real title match... but this time, their little antics are actually
joined (in mock humor) by the stoner RVD 4:20! He's all like, totally awesome strike man! And he's totally down to end this dispute once
and for all... so at "Give Me Libety or Death", RVD is going to have the TV title strung high above the ring - and the only way to get it will be
with a ladder!!
Segment starts backstage with a chance run-in encounter between Human Tornado & Missy Hyatt - (her jealous, Jock boyfriend Alex Riley interjects
himself into the picture and disses Tornado before leaving with his arm around Hyatt)… and ends here tonight after Riley’s match with Ricky Reyes as
Human Tornado’s appearance (slapping Missy Hyatt’s rear end) and distraction causes Alex Riley to lose his match… first the Diamond Dynasty was
fractured @ “BiB2”, and now Riley has suffered a loss in the first match of his new singles run… he and Hyatt are appalled, while Human Tornado pimp
struts back up the entrance ramp and Ricky Reyes soaks in his improbable victory.
Winner: RICKY REYES
Human Tornado lays the pimp slap down on the pampered, privileged power duo Alex Riley & Missy Hyatt!
"Introducing ALBERTO DEL RIO (but you knew that already)" (You just don't know why he came)
MSD: The question on everybody's mind: Why did you come to XPW Remixed?
ALBERTO DEL RIO: I think I’m going to be heavyweight champion in this company very soon
MSD: So you have long-term goals here?
ALBERTO DEL RIO: In two years, I think I’m going to be one of the main guys in this company, one of the top five guys in this company.
MSD: You came here for the World title status?
ALBERTO DEL RIO: That’s the reason I came here, that’s the reason I left everything behind – my friends, my family, my house in Mexico, my
status. I was a big superstar in Mexico and when I came to WWE, no one knew me. Now I’m building my career here in the States, little by little and
I’m sure I’m going to be one of the main guys pretty soon.
POGO the CLOWN versus DANNY HAVOC versus… SABU!! (Xtreme Rulez Free-for-All)
Match was ordered by Rob Black after Danny Havoc had the audacity to challenge Black’s rule with his dry wit… so Black unleashed this opponent upon
him and Havoc bumped and bled like a champ for the much larger Pogo… out of nowhere, the homicidal, suicidal, genocidal Sabu showed up (chucking
chairs in the audience) to spontaneously join the fight! He winds up putting both men through tables in vastly creative spots, before crushing both
of them with a triple-jump moonsault (with fat Pogo stacked on Havoc on the mat, trapping him like a ton of bricks)… Sabu with the pinfall victory on
Havoc… he’s then strapped into a medical gurney and straight jacket by XPW officials and security, and carted away (because he’s literally crazy, you
know? And nearly impossible to manage)…
SAMI CALLIHAN & THE MESSIAH
DRAKE YOUNGER & DAN SEVERN
Messiah & Callihan's twisted history in XPW Remixed canon is reviewed by the commentators - former blood enemies united in the battle for Death
Match supremacy... tonight as representatives of CZWO they do battle with a troop they have beaten upon in gangland fashion in the past... Drake
Younger & Dan Severn display expert shoot fighting skills, with Severn in particular executing a suplex seminar on Messiah & Sami... but the
diabolical brilliance of Messiah & Sami is on display when Severn gets seperated (and engulfed in a ringside brawl with the newly-appeared MadMan
Pondo) while Drake Younger gets double-teamed into oblivion... Carlito's Way elevated diamond cutter from Messiah puts Drake in perfect
position for Callihan's "Stretch Muffler" finisher (the same move that put Younger out @ "BiB2")...
Winners: MESSIAH & SAMI CALLIHAN
Postmatch - the Beast Dan Severn snaps and goes prehistoric on Messiah & Callihan! Huge, explosive overhead suplexes and slams with the crowd
cheering each one louder... until the equally-beefy (and just as ornery) CZWO leader JOHN ZANDIG appears to halt the rampage! He catches Dan Severn
from behind with a Kendo stick, breaking it over his head, and that's it. The rest of the segment is a brutal torture scene where Zandig and
his CZWO execute an unprotected Kendo stick assault on the bare-backed bodies of Severn & Younger... his statement made, Zandig closes with another
violent pep-talk rally... he actually salutes the memory of "Sick" Nick Mondo's career, and tells the world "Cage of Death" was his
invention and at "Give Me Liberty or Death" the CZWO will take back the "king of the death match" title!!
** CUT BACKSTAGE **
** BACKSTAGE SKIT **
Rob Black is holding court with his Black Army henchmen - giving orders regarding the CZWO invasion… Rob Black is the Praetor Claudius Glaber of
XPW Remixed - raging against Spartacus (John Zandig) and his CZWO slave revolt… “Give Me Liberty or Death” PPV will be their Capua… that night, not
only will the Black Army gain control of the Commissioners office (when Hakushi Kuro beats William Muldoon).. .they will also seize the bloody legacy
of the KotDM once and for all and claim it for the West Coast…
CZWO versus Black Army!!
”Cage of Death” match for control of the KotDM title!!
”LOU THESZ versus MR. PERFECT” (The Light and the Dark of it)
THE LIGHT: Another in a long line of EPIC Territory Wars CROSS-OVER appearances, Lou Thesz & Mr. Perfect have come together to write fantasy
wrestling history. In what promises to be an epic level clash, Lou Thesz will defend his XPW World championship against a territory “outsider”… just
the mere thought of an inter-promotional clash of this magnitude is enough to make fantasy fans salivate… but there is so much more at stake here
than just promoting a great fight. For starters, this is the beginning of Lou Thesz’ lifelong ambition to prove himself the ONLY “World” champion in
the Territory Wars. If that means defending that title here, abroad, or against any range of opponents (signed or unsigned) so be it. Mr Perfect
have proven his legacy in fantasy wrestling, recently rescued his home federation the AWA from a siege attempt, and proven his worth as a world title
contender. But Mr Perfect has also taken this challenge to a highly personal level – first with the disrespect he showed Thesz as special referee of
his match (at “BiB2”)… the by publically airing backstage grievances when he discussed the “slap heard round the Territory Wars” on XPW TV Episode
#46… Mr. Perfect has lit a fire under Lou Thesz – strong enough to make the XPW World champion step out of his comfort zone and compete against a
rival competitor. News magazines, wrestling messageboards and After The Bell have all been set ablaze by the announcement of this huge title fight.
THE DARK: Is Lou Thesz really the odd man out? His own pride - the only visible weakness he has - turned against him? His alliance with
former mentor Ed “Strangler” Lewis has been tenuous at best since Thesz joined XPW Remixed (see “New Years Revolution” & “My Bloody Valentine”)…
antagonistic at worst. But his relationship with VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt is legendarily bad… there are some that say Thesz extreme dislike for Mondt
(and promoters of his ilk) is what convinced him to strike out on his fantasy wrestling pilgrimage in the first place. What drove him to the rotten
debauchery of XPW Remixed like a moth to a flame. Lou Thesz would save fantasy wrestling or die trying. Now that he is the coveted XPW Champion he
has done great, and unimaginable, things. He has the longest uninterrupted reign in XPW history… he elevated it to WORLD TITLE status… and now, he
attempts to defend the gold outside of traditional territory boundaries. Is this just an advanced effort from GDT Inc (Lewis, Mondt & Black) to take
the title off Thesz once and for all? Move it to a talent that will work within their system (Mr. Perfect) and not have a rebel agenda of their own?
A title holder has all the cards, and the way Mr, Perfect was brought in to immediately play upon Thesz’ pride and goad him into a match seems too
coincidental. There are some in the know that claim GDT Inc plans to move the belt onto Mr. Perfect - before announcing him as their newest talent
acquisition - and pushing him into “Give Me Liberty or Death” as the new XPW World champion!! Lou Thesz will finally be shunted down the card and
kept from the title picture for good. What repercussions will the handshake agreement between Ed Lewis & Verne Gagne bring upon XPW Remixed, and
fantasy wrestling as a whole? Tune in to the next XPW TV Episode to find out!!
** XPW World Championship Match **[/color]
Lou Thesz 1955 (champion) versus Mr. Perfect 1991 (challenger)
MCMG jawing across the ring with the Usos - and Ad Santel adds to the clamor at ringside… Alex Shelley & Jimmy Uso start - and a lock-up begins the
match… Jimmy Uso muscles Shelley into a neutral corner - fakes a clean break and comes back to strike - but Shelley outmaneuvers him and goes on the
offense with lightning fast strikes… he and Sabin begin tagging in and out until Shelley is caught attempting a somersault senton from the top rope -
and is power bombed by Jimmy Uso in a defensive effort instead… Tag out… Shoulder block by Jey Uso, but Shelley counters with a flying forearm… he
tries again but eats a spine buster from Jey Uso in retaliation… Knees by Jimmy Uso (back in), and he and his partner lay the boots in on Shelley
while Sabin argues with the ref and Berry… Jimmy Uso works the arm with a wristlock, and tosses Shelley into the corner - poses and takes time to
argue with the ref… Ad Santel taunts and aggravates the crowd further to drive up the heat… Shelley fight back - gets the hot tag to Sabin - and
MCMG make the comeback… Double cross body to Jimmy Uso - double dropkick to Jey Uso... MCMG moving like a blur, with each successive move getting a
louder reaction from the crowd… one of the Uso’s misses a top rope splash - Chris Sabin DOESN’T miss - and the MCMG wind up winning a thrilling duel…
Winners (and STILL XPW Remixed Tag Team Champions): MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS
Post match, the manager "Wild" Red Berry reappears at the top of the entrance ramp to address the champions... his Fabulous Kangaroos will get
their rematch at "Give Me Liberty or Death"... but that only draws out Road Dogg Jesse James who disses both teams (especially MCMG for
skull-bashing Billy Gunn earlier tonight) on the mic... before the MCMG retort and say they'll take EVERYBODY on at "Give Me Liberty or
Death"! Tag Team 3-way dance for the titles!

XPW TV Episode #47 (Thesz vs Mr. Perfect)
** LIVE! **
From an undisclosed location in Minneapolis MN!
XPW Remixed & AWA proudly present...
** VIDEO CUT **
Lou Thesz and business associate Masahiko Kimura storm the office of Rob Black... Thesz and Kimura are the picture of Boardwalk Empire-chic...
you can't see it, but you can imagine a pistol tucked in the waist band... Thesz gives Rob Black hell for the main event shenanigans he
concocted to drive Thesz & Perfect against each other... Thesz insinuates some kind of master plan spearheaded by Black to remove Thesz as XPW
Remixed champion... but Rob Black voraciously denies these allegations, and is all like "whoa man! Not why I came! I'm here for the KotDM &
chicks only! That wasn't my idea!" If Thesz wants somebody to blame for the main event title match tonight look further than XPW President Ed
"Strangler" Lewis & AWA President Verne Gagne... that's Rob Blacks story and he's sticking to it...
** TV INTRO **
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
In ring payoff to the weeks of "FOCUS on Strike" skits - culminating on XPW Online #21 with the ladder match challenge... the Focus work stoppage
was brought to the ring, with Otunga using the platform to claim his client Gorgeous George still has legitimate claim to the TV title... ends with a
competitive squash match after RVD goads Otunga into action... GG looks gorgeous at ringside, Otunga gets to put over his physical appearence - and
RVD ends with an emphatic 5-star frogsplash.
Winner: RVD 4:20
Post match we get the inevitable Gorgeous George run-in (after Otunga swore he wasn't in the building in protest) and beat down on RVD... he
attacks RVD's knee with a ladder and finishes with a "Stroke" right on the metal edge to end the segment... Now Otunga holds a barely
concious RVD down, while GG retrieves his XPW TV title... in an elaborate, mock-ceremony - she presents it around the waist of Gorgeous George
Wagner! FOCUS pose for pics and leave with the belt! RVD is champion! Gorgeous George has the belt! But @ "Give Me Liberty or Death" - it will
be in nobody's possesion! It will be hung high above the ring and the only way to claim it will be with a ladder!
ROB VAN DAM defends his XPW TV title against former champion GORGEOUS GEORGE WAGNER!
Scary intense backstage confrontation between XPW Remixed Commissioner William Muldoon and the evil Atsushi Onita… Muldoon has challenged Onita’s new
superstar (and former Muldoon student) Hakushi to a match at “Give Me Liberty or Death”… and Onita has managed to insert the clause that if Muldoon
loses… he gives the Commissioner Office title to Onita! To break the tension at the end of the segment, former Commissioner “Real Deal” Damien
Steele interjects to add a moment of comic levity… his hollow taunts draw Muldoon into using his booking powers to make Damien Steele’s next
The “XPW Remixed gets revenge against Damien Steele” tour continues… this week it’s the “former” KotDM champion (and the man stripped and “fired” by
Damien Steele) Sid Vicious… first Steele plagiarized his old gimmick (hiring a fake Lord Humongous), and then he nearly gave Sid’s cellphone number
out to the fans in the middle of the ring… tonight, he waits in the center of the ring begging off, as Sid Vicious strides towards his execution (and
the fans chant “SID! SID!”) Short and sweet… Steele’s offense brushed off and no-sold by Sid… Chokeslam! POWERBOMB! The Master and Ruler of the
Universe does it again!
The Onita/Muldoon friction continues - with Onita viciously lambasting Muldoon and questioning his honor and integrity (slights Muldoon as a man,
cannot let slide)… Onita goads the “Solid Man” William Muldoon into accepting an impromptu contest against “The Crazy Monkey” Jun Kasai! Oh my,
anything can happen in XPW Remixed! Back from commercial break and a ring-ready Muldoon is greeted by Jun Kasai’s frightening TV entrance… Muldoon’s
wrestling is far superior, but Kasai is just serial-killer creepy and seems to get some demented enjoyment from some of Muldoon’s submission attempts…
When Muldoon gets the advantage, sure enough Onita jumps up on the ring apron to distract the referee… but this time, none other Olympia trainee
TOMMASO CIAMPA makes the run-in and save (with a slightly new appearance)… but instead - he flips off his old coach right to his stunned face, and
deserts him! Muldoon is mortified, and easy prey for a back brain kick from Kasai… a brain buster / top rope Kamikaze dive finishes the match! 1!..
2!.. 3! Jun Kasai pins William Muldoon! Onita talks more disrespectful trash to Muldoon, as Tommaso Ciampa makes his way up the entrance ramp to
boos (his ice cold eyes locked on Muldoon in the ring, and a new Hollywood Hogan-like blond goatee to give him a more sinister look) and the
announcers ask aloud “WHY, TOMMASO? WHY?”
Winner: JUN KASAI
** CUT **
On the streets footage of a reflective Bruno Sammartino, as he hits all his old Italian stomping grounds in NYC for the XPW Remixed cameras that
follow... Sammartino needs time and space to figure out his next move...
FabThe manager “Wild” Red Berry hosts an elaborate in-ring ceremony featuring his talent (and “All-American Legends”) the Fabulous Kangaroos… bit is
a comical look at how “USA” the FabKangs are, and how their opponents at “Give Me Liberty or Death” are NOT! In honor of 4th of July and the true
season of Americana, the FabKangs will conduct a Red, White & Blue symphony upon the bodies of their opponents! And because America celebrates the
freedom and beauty of all cultures, the FabKangs respectfully ask everybody to stand for the Australian national anthem (booooooo!!) Thankfully we
are interrupted by the Detroit-bred MOTORCITY MACHINE GUNS!!
In ring, verbal joust between the 4 men - that’s won by the MCMG’s sarcastic, dry internet-age quips and humorous soundbytes… even “Wild” Red Berry’s
encyclopedic rant is laid silent by the XPW Tag Team championship belts the Guns hold… finally, there is no course but brute ignorant strength - and
Berry is ready to flex his when the NEW Twin Towers (of Bam Bam Bigelow & Bull Ramos) form at the top of the entrance ramp - trapping the MCMG! It’s
about to be a 4-on-2 beat down, when suddenly - the NEW Twin Towers are jumped by Billy Gunn & Road Dogg… the NEW AGE OUTLAWS!
Still without coming to blows - the MCMG manage to stave the FabKangs from interfering - thus allowing Bigelow & Ramos to be jumped and viciously
beaten… then with the eyes of the world (and Red Berry’s beady set) fixed upon them - the NAO dump Ramos & Bigelow’s gigantic body into a nearby
dumpster! But with the crowd egging them on - and Berry & the FabKangs growing more irate by the moment - the NAO can’t leave well enough alone and
actually ROLL THE DUMPSTER (w/ Bigelow & Ramos in it) OFF the entrance ramp! “HOLY S***!” and “XPW! XPW!” chants break out! The MCMG look impressed…
the FabKangs MURDEROUSLY enraged… and the NAO finish with their lively, crowd pleasing sing along - targeting both their opponents @ “Give Me
Liberty or Death” and declaring this a battle of the World’s Greatest Tag Teams! But at “Give Me Liberty or Death” - the NAO will prove beyond the
shadow of a doubt they are the GREATEST of them all!
** CUT **
"There Must Be A Winner!"
XPW Champion Lou Thesz confronts Ed "Strangler" Lewis with a few last-minute match caveats - all of which must be met or Thesz walks with the
1) Since this is a single fall match, it will have a 60 minute match limit - with a tie or draw going to the champion.
2) Title can only change hands on a pinfall or submission.
3) Any member of the Black Army or Shooters Club (Thesz training team) interfering in the match will be fined, suspended and/or terminated!
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Brief, but intense words from SHEAMUS regarding his backstage attack last XPW TV Episode... he WILL find the culprit tonight, and has a feeling it
has something to do with the Rise of the Black Army... Sheamus is on the hunt tonight... foes beware...
SHANE DOUGLAS (w/ Lizzy Borden) 2001
SAMOA JOE (2007)
(w/ special referee JOHN CENA 2012)
Video recap of the intertwining paths of these three men, and how they’ve all come together tonight… XPW Boston championship is the common
denominator, along with an insatiable desire for each of them to prove themselves the singular “franchise” of their generation… from there, we get an
attempt at a backstage interview with MSD & Shane Douglas - but the pissed off former ECW & XPW champion commandeers the mic instead and marches to
the ring with it (jawing and ranting away the entire time)… in the span of time it takes Shane Douglas & Lizzy Borden to storm from backstage to the
ring, he has successfully reinvented himself as a rebel to the machine and the leader of a Revolution (IE: WCW 1999)… same old angry, bitter bile -
but with a renewed focus and shape… Samoa Joe is the quiet killer - letting the “JOE’S GONNA KIIILLL YOUUUU!” chants from the audience speak for him…
special referee John Cena (XPW Boston champion) enters last to a HUGE ovation… much ado is made (mostly by Cena himself) about the Boston champion
being ref - and how much he's willing to assert (or ignore, in some instances) his ruling power... he basically lets both men fight... and
that they do...
powermad temptress Lizzy Borden keeps the heat up at ringside as Douglas & Samoa Joe bludgeon each other with offenses exactly 10 years cyclical in
nature... Solie & Striker cover Cena's union with Paul Bowser, and how the legendary Boston area promoter has benefited Cena's career...
in the end of course tempers and egos flare, everybody gets in each others faces... and after pointing his finger in Joe's chest at one point -
then turning to face Shane Douglas - John Cena is suddenly set upon from behind by Samoa Joe!! Enraged and upset over the most miniscule perceived
slight, Joe snatches Cena from behind in his Kokina clutch rear-naked choke! The lethal hold that's been used to subdue guys like Kurt Angle,
Bruno Sammartino and even Shane Douglas himself once before! Now Joes wraps his legs around Cena's body on the mat and chokes him unconcious...
he only breaks the hold to stare daggers through a bewildered Shane Douglas... who slowly smiles at the realization, before calling to Lizzy Borden
for something from ringside... it's a new "REVOLUTION" T-Shirt...
Part of Shane Douglas' new doctrine he was spitting during his walk-out... and now a gift to Samoa Joe... but Joe just goes nose-to-nose with
Douglas... SLAPPING the shirt out of his hand! Then HEADBUTTING him in the face! Joe wants only for himself! Now the fans are 100% cheering
Joe's reckless actions as he cuts Douglas down before grabbing an interfering Lizzy Borden - and HITTING LIZZY BORDEN WITH A MUSCLE BUSTER!
"HOLY S***!" and "XPW! XPW!" chants! But Samoa Joe turns right around into a HUGE FUAA from a now-recovered JOHN CENA! The Hollywood superman
hoists Joe HIGH in the air and SLAMS him to the mat with paralyzing force! The reigning XPW Boston champion puts an exclamation point on the entire
statement here by clearing the ring - grabbing a mic - and with Paul Bowser's blessing ordering a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH @ "Give Me Liberty or
Death"! Cena will take on ALL you sunovabitches!! But it comes with a steep price... this is an all-or-nothing "Something 2 Lose" triple threat
match... high stakes entry, for the highest bidders only: Cena is putting up the precious Boston championship belt (something that would serve as
validation to Douglas & Joe's fantasy wrestling career; as clearly defined in the build-up)... in return, Samoa Joe gives up the right to ever
compete for the XPW Boston championship again (that means if he loses he NEVER gets another title shot; effectively *BANNING* him from competition)...
and if Shane Douglas loses then his Revolution DIES along with his career! Loser Leaves XPW Remixed for GOOD! Those are the conditions - the stakes
are certainly high enough - each man has a certain degree of "fuck it, I'm dead either way" in them - and so they agree! High stakes,
winner-take-all, "Something 2 Lose" Triple Threat title match! XPW Boston Championship!
Winner: NONE (no finish)
John Cena defends his XPW Boston championship against Samoa Joe AND Shane Douglas! Triple Threat "Something 2 Lose" title match! Only at "Give
Me Liberty or Death"!!
Dean Ambrose meeting with Rob Black in his office... the slimy, ungrateful wretch Dean Ambrose wants MORE and assumes Rob Black's big
championship "idea" involves an Ambrose title match - especially after Dean Ambrose pinned the reigning TNA champion @ "BiB2"!! Yes, yes
that's wonderful... but Rob Black has to remind Ambrose that he lost the pinfall on the last XPW TV Episode... so no, a championship match for
Ambrose is NOT Rob Black's idea... for tonight! Because Black has something even better for Ambrose... a chance to sharpen his blade and send a
statement on behalf of the Black Army that a new tide of darkness is upon us... and Dean Ambrose is leader of the new school...
** CUT TO RING **
DEAN AMBROSE & KEVIN SULLIVAN vs. MADMAN PONDO (“Handicap Match”)
This brief XPW Remixed mini-series puts the focus squarely on the real Black Army - it’s start in late 90s LA with XPW Original… the first Kevin
Sullivan incarnation (see New Years Revolution)… and now, the fantasy wrestling takeover… Rob Black is helping redirect the vision of the company he
once built (and drove into the ground to the depths of Hell)… it has been revealed that a choice championship power play by Rob Black helped seal the
deal in his 1/3rd purchase of GDT Inc (Lou Thesz assumes this play involves him taking on Mr. Perfect tonight)… but it also comes as no surprise that
Black has grand ambitions… he seeks to control the uncontrollable… master of the wild… ruler of the “King of the Death Match” division… beside
Black stands his once-exiled advisor JACK PFEFER and his Japanese delegate Atsushi Onita, and they are willing to aid Black in his takeover whatever
the cost… Rob Black places all of his fortune and clout upon the one man he believes will bring fame and glory to his empire - DEAN AMBROSE. Ambrose
is a skilled warrior, adept at hard-hitting Japanese style fighting, MMA scrapes, chain-wrestling or Death Match mutiny… he can do it all, and with
great prowess… he was the sole survivor in the big CZWO/Black Army Elimination match @ “BiB2” and has watched his stock soar (despite the tag team
setback last Episode)… tonight - a tortured, captured member of the CZWO rebellion - MadMan Pondo - is being fed to the lions…
Both Kevin Sullivan (full “Prince of Darkness 1982”-style) and Dean Ambrose wield weaponry to start, while Pondo enters with nothing… 8 or 9 masked
sadomasochistic Black Army followers surround the ring, lumberjack style, adding an ominous ambiance as they constantly prod and needle MadMan Pondo
like a caged animal… light tubes, chairs, chains and other weapons are broken over Pondo… but his greatest indignities are suffered when Ambrose &
Sullivan gleefully torture him with a trash can and lid (proving he is indeed nothing more than “trash”)… Pondo fights back briefly, certainly
proving himself a gladiator - but in the end the machinations of Ambrose & Sullivan on tandem offense are too much - and Pondo is driven into sand on
WINNERS: DEAN AMBROSE & KEVIN SULLIVAN
Ambrose receives the praise and glory - Rob Black (shown applauding from his private luxury box above the arena) gets the credit - and MadMan Pondo
is removed from the ring, funeral pyre-style, by the masked Black Army devotees... just then! CHAOS IN THE CORRIDORS! Members of the CZWO (Messiah
& Sami Callihan, in security disguise) have infiltrated the inner sanctum of the arena and trying to bumrush Black in the security box! Messiah &
Callihan hold off the troops in brutal combat, leaving Rob Black alone and unprotected in the luxury box...
Enter CZWO captain ZANDIG!!
Finally he has Black in his cross hairs... he lists the decades long grievances holds against Black (and the whole Philly invasion of the late
90s)... something that resulted in deaths, the end of careers and jail time... now - in honor of "Sick" Nick Mondo's revolutionary sacrifice
at “BiB2” (something that changed Zandig’s entire outlook) - Zandig has promised to end this war once and for all - by throwing Rob Black off the
balcony! Oh my! He grabs Black by his shirt! But a figure lunges from the darkness to seize Zandig from behind!
The lone wolf, human suplex machine, self-appointed “FTW” champion TAZ jumps on Zandig’s back like a pitbull and locks in the Tazmission! It gives
security and GTD Inc personnel enough time to reach the scene, clear it out and rescue Rob Black! Taz choked out Zandig! When he’s finally pried off
Zandig, he just furiously stares down Black without saying a word - and then storming off… enter Dean Ambrose (w/ Sullivan & Onita) who just came
rushing into the scene from the ring! They are just as shocked as Rob Black and the rest of us by Taz’s spontaneous action… Meanwhile Messiah & Sami
Callihan are forced to grab Zandig’s body and flee the building, foiled in their siege attempt…

William Muldoon is despondent in the locker room after his loss, being consoled by Alexxis Nevaeh… they both question Tommaso Ciampa’s actions
earlier tonight - but can’t find him to get a direct answer… instead they come face-to-face with a smiling, cackling ATSUSHI ONITA! More dark,
evil-natured intimidation and tough-talk from Onita to Muldoon… disparaging him and promising to take his office title @ “Give Me Liberty or Death”…
but William Muldoon still has the book for now, and in the efforts of “fair play” - since Muldoon already competed tonight, it’s only right that his
opponent @ “Give Me Liberty or Death” (Hakushi Kuro) fight tonight as well… and Muldoon has just the guy in mind to teach Onita about the REAL honor
and integrity of the Land of the Rising Sun… stare down between Muldoon & Onita to end the scene…
HAKUSHI KURO versus MASAHIKO KIMURA
Hakushi beats Kimura by countout, via Black Mist to the FACE... Kimura couldn't recover in time, and when Muldoon emerged to help lend aid to
him - they were both surrounded by members of the Black Army entourage, led by the evil Onita.
Winner (by count-out): HAKUSHI KURO
This time Muldoon goes down like the captain of a sinking ship - fighting the entire time... but with the goon squad bearing down on Muldoon, aid
comes from an unlikely source: SHEAMUS!
The Celtic Warrior makes good on his promise to raise some hell and seek accused vengeance! He runs through sword-weilding goons! He runs through
Kevin Sullivan! The brawl is on in the ring, but the forces of darkness are still too much... Out of nowhere Tazz shows up to CHOKE OUT SNUFF! The
masked monster was advancing upon a downed Alexxis Neveah near the stage area, when Taz leapt from the shadows onto Snuff's back! TAZMISSION!
Finally order is restored, the factions seperated, and Taz leaves Snuff lying at the feet of a confused and outraged Kevin Sullivan!! WTF?!?
Taz has revealed his allegiance... to himself! FTW!
** CUT TO VIDEO WALL **
There, above the ruckus and din of the dissolving brawl, a video vignette runs... it is the imaculately-attired combination of "Nature Boy"
Buddy Rogers and Matt Morgan... they are in a night time parking lot near some Fast & Furious cars... and Morgan holds Sheamus "Iron cross"
necklace in his hand... they cut a promo on Sheamus taking credit for his attack last XPW TV Episode! It was Morgan & Rogers all along! And they
have a statement for Sheamus as they speed off with his chain - there's only room for one million dollar giant in XPW Remixed... and
that's the "Blueprint" Matt Morgan!
Morgan & Rogers take a pound of flesh from Sheamus
Sunny steals the show with her sashaying entrance as she preps to do the guest ring announcing... but before she can begin we're interupted
by the theme song for Phil "Gunner" Shatter (2013) and Jessica Darlin (2001) - XPW Remixed's newest power couple... Gunner hijacks the scene
on behalf of his slutty gal pal Jessica Darlin - but they in turn are cut off by sassy Annie Social, who has some profanity-laced words for all of
them... Gunner instigates a cat fight, and soon Annie Social/Sunny/Jessica Darlin are all rolling around the mat, grabbing each others hair and
tearing their clothes off! Gunner laughs! Crowd cheers! A wild tigress ROAR rips through the arena soundsystem, drawing all eyes to the entrance
Introducing to XPW Remixed...
Sable cuts a promo, promotes the new Women of XPW Remixed issue coming out this week, and hypes her involvement in the Bikini Brawl @ "Give Me
Liberty or Death!!
Slow walk together in the center of the ring, with a pan on the throng of raving fans behind them standing and roaring their satisfaction… this is
like ATL 98 the time Goldberg beat Hogan for the WCW title… but now those same fans mix with the wild-ass ‘61 Comisky Park fans, the die hard Road
Wild fanatics and live smart marks from the future within the historical melting pot of XPW Remixed… this is where the past, present and future
collide on the same ethereal stage. Thesz (55) and Mr. Perfect (91) elicit Goosebumps and a chill up the spine that is unparalleled in fantasy
Crowd into both guys, and we fly right into action with a furious lock-up, scramble, counter-hold reversal seminar… crowd growing louder with each
exchange until champ Lou Thesz caps it off by showing his strength advantage and slamming Mr. Perfect on the mat to make him stay down… off the
ropes, criss-cross reversal into a crossbody from Thesz (for a 1 count)… more mat wrestling by Thesz, both guys still going at full throttle - shoot
style… once again Thesz puts an abrupt end to Mr. Perfect‘s rally with a stiff clothesline that knocks Hennig through the ropes to the floor! Mr.
Perfect wants to walk it off, and soak in the crowd heat now (turning him on a bit as he begins to display his hellish sneer)… and when Hennig sees
Thesz arguing with the referee, he clips Thesz leg and knocks him to the apron… then he hurls Thesz off to the ring apron into the ringside
barricade, to the floor! Thesz seems pissed and he and Perfect engage in a tight-quarters brawl; gripping each other and throwing blows… back in the
ring and Mr. Perfect answers with 3 on-point dropkicks to Thesz head, each one dropping him lower to the mat… the last one throws the champ for a
loop and Mr. Perfect leaps in with a sleeper hold/rear naked choke attempt… Thesz fights back and hit’s a Samoan Drop on Perfect… but Hennig quickly
rebounds to pitch Thesz hard chest first into the turnbuckles… Only a 2 count for Hennig… He sets up Thesz for two Atomic Drops and segues into a
snap suplex… Backbreaker and Middle rope elbow drop by Hennig (but still only 2)… they fall out on the floor again, and Perfect whips Thesz into the
ringpost… Thesz fights back again though with European uppercuts, and Hennig rolls back into the ring to regroup… just another Perfect ploy - as
Hennig kicks the middle ropes with Thesz climbing in the ring - effectively crotching him… Thesz crumbles to the mat in pain… still only 2.
Another scramble comes all the way back around again, and they wind up fighting over a lock-up (with the crowd cheering like crazy)… Thesz delivers a
crucifix for 2 - moves into a side headlock on the mat - and both guys go back and forth with the heelish hair-pulling (crowd cheers Thesz)! Mr.
Perfect with some body shots to Thesz, breaking his grip… Thesz bounces off the ropes with a THESZ PRESS (!) for 2!! The momentum from the kick-out
puts Thesz on the floor, but he comes back in with a sunset flip for another close 2 count… so Perfect answers with headlock / cheap shot to slow his
roll… They trade slams and a huge double-clothesline spot takes them both over the top rope to the floor again, where the brawl continues in earnest…
Thesz winds up tearing Perfect’s singlet in the fracas… Perfect cowers away, but cheapshots Thesz again and kicks him to the floor… When Thesz tries
to get back in the ring, Perfect shoves him off into a cameraman! Both Thesz, the random employee and his HD TV camera going crashing into the
ringside guardrail… Thesz comes up holding his arm and Hennig jumps on him like a shark… he rams the shoulder into the ringpost, guardrail and
around the buckle until Thesz arm is like a warm strand of spaghetti…
The focus of the rest of the match is on that wounded appendage, as Mr. Perfect runs through his full arsenal of shoot holds and submission locks to
attempt to squeeze a tap from the champ… but Lou Thesz grits his teeth, grinds it out and fights for leverage and control… Perfect punches back and
whips Thesz from corner-to-corner for two… Running Neck Snap and a Dropkick puts Thesz on his back… Mr. Perfect and Thesz fight over another sleeper
/ rear naked choke, but this time Perfect cinches it in tight… luckily Thesz manages to stretch his foot to the bottom rope, but Perfect still
doesn‘t release the hold for a few extra precious seconds… Perfect plays to the crowd - drags Thesz into the center of the ring - and hit’s the
PERFECT PLEX! 1!.. 2!.. KICKOUT! Hennig is incredulous! Then enraged! He goes to lock in Thesz own STF on him, but Lou counters out and is about
to snap Perfect in the same hold - when his arm gives out on him and he loses position… Perfect escapes and goes back on offense… He hits a pair of
arm drags and then slings Thesz by his hair straight into the ringpost... Suplex gets two… Small package gets two… Mr. Perfect is getting frustrated…
Russian Legsweep gets two… Backbreaker/flying vertical elbow drop gets two, and even the crowd can‘t believe it at this point! But it starts up a
“THESZ! THESZ“ chant! While Mr. Perfect begins arguing with the ref, Thesz sneaks in for the finish and rolls up Hennig! 1!.. 2!.. KICKOUT! OOOOH!
The crowd can’t believe it… Thesz arm is almost dead… never the less, he socks Hennig with his good arm - but gets desperation low-blowed by
Perfect for big boos… Perfect then starts stomping Thesz’ arm and midsection/crotch area ruthlessly.. The referee warns of DQ, but Hennig doesn’t
relent… so Thesz catches his foot and maneuvers Perfect into a takedown into STF on the mat! Middle of the ring! He struggles for position, Perfect
fights it, the announcers and fans are going ballistic… and finally (dramatically) Mr. Perfect taps out! HE TAPS OUT! Thesz retains!!
Winner (and STILL XPW WORLD Champion): LOU THESZ
The confetti falls, the music blares, the celebration unfolds… Thesz (near tears from exertion and elation) accepts the XPW World title strapped
around his waist and his arm raised triumphantly… throngs of reporters and camera men (both American and abroad) snap millions of photographs and the
announcers go crazy over Thesz win on the mic… MSD elbows his way into position for the post-match, Joe Rogan mic bit with Thesz… Lou is beyond
grateful, yet humble and confident and was ready to uphold the newfound integrity HE instilled in the XPW World title… for him, he has big plans to
bring even more legitimacy to the XPW World title… and rid it of the stink it was born of; distance it from the corruption of the Black Army… and that
plan starts at “Give Me Liberty or Death” when Lou Thesz…
SUDDENLY HE’S ATTACKED FROM BEHIND!
An unseen foe has slid past security and ambushed the champion! It’s ALBERTO DEL RIO (2011)!! With a cartel leader’s cold expression, he
dissects and dismantles Thesz on the mat (focus on his injured arm)… quick camera cut backstage to the office of ROB BLACK - he turns to advisor Jack
Pfefer and says “now THAT’S my idea for the XPW World title!” The master plan all along... Ha ha… Back in the ring, nobody can stop the assault and
Del Rio finishes with his cross arm breaker!! THESZ WILL BE CRIPPLED! Del Rio closes on the mic with his XPW Remixed destiny speech and says he was
brought here and guaranteed a World Title match @ “Give Me Liberty or Death”!! Del Rio stands proudly over Thesz broken carcass as we fade…

** BREAKING FOOTAGE **
TERRIFYING horror movie intro of the bolted studio doors to the XPW Online broadcast booth being VIOLENTLY breached… inside the studio, a
horrified Sammi Lane (prepping for her host duties) and several television staff members are trapped! Suddenly (using a fireman’s ax like Jack
Nicholson in the “Shining”) - KILO busts through the door with a coked-up glare in his eye! He busts up security and KIDNAPS SAMMI LANE! Despite her
frantic screaming and flailing, the MASSIVE Kilo disposes of bystanders before slinging her over his shoulder and fleeing! Mere seconds later, French
Angel & additional security reach the scene but it’s too late… when briefed on the matter French Angel flies into an animalistic FURY and tears the
rest of the place up! He takes off like a feral creature of the night, deep into the bowels of the building, to find Kilo and rescue his valet Sammi
“Natural Born Killaz” opens the show… New Jack marches out with his shopping cart full of weapons… makes good on his promise to call out Sandman for
being a colossal pussy and trying to ruin the KotDM tourney… sure enough his foul, vulgar taunts get the crowd chanting “XPW”! and finally draw
Sandman from behind the dressing room curtain! The cynical, defiant Sandman answers New Jack on the mic and tells him ECW IS DEAD, let go the past!
Sandman has moved on from all this dead end Death Match tomfoolery and so should New Jack! But New Jack won’t relent so Sandman says “suit yourself”…
and we get a sneak attack! A barefoot, masked assailant has breached the security wall to attack New Jack from behind! Now Sandman joins the
assault, and it’s a brutal, bloody, weapon-filled beating for the Original Gangsta! Sandman rips the other guys mask off to reveal NECRO
BUTCHER! (with new shaved head)… Sandman and the movie star Necro Butcher have gone Hollywood sell-out! And their anti-hardcore sensibilities
will prevent anybody from ever having to witness “garbage wrestling” again!!

*BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
French Angel rampages through the locker room in a mad frenzy to find the kidnapped Sammi Lane! He wails like a banshee and his despair is

a win against all degenerates and X-Gen slackers everywhere!

HAVANA PITBULLS (2007) versus BIZARRO RYDE (unknown debut)[/size]
Romero & Reyes displaying tag team friction as of late… Reyes solo victory last XPW Online over Alex Riley has only added to the fire of their
rivalry… a bubbling animosity that was fanned before this encounter by Alex Riley & Missy Hyatt (who - by appearing to faux-congratulate Reyes on his
victory) - only stoked the Pitbulls individual competitive fire more and goaded them into accepting this tag team match (against a team Missy Hyatt &
Riley - who have the inside track on company dealings - are supposed to be the new hot shit in fantasy wrestling)… Pitbulls accept the match solely
out of a desire to out perform each other… brief video vignette runs on the mysterious masked team (really weird, space-age and bugged out) before
their big, pyro-fueled entrance… they enter with long coats and strange masks that they remove to reveal a SECOND set of masks still hiding their
face… high-paced lucha offense from all 4 guys that culminates in a death defying aerial exchange at the end… Rocky Romero gets pinned after an
indescribable double-team maneuver… Pitbulls are angry and dejected… newcomers pose and preen for the cameras and crowd…
Winners: BIZARRO RYDE

** BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW **
MSD catches up with XPW Remixed tag team champions the MCMG for their final word on the subject... scene-closing promo from each of them that
promises fireworks come "Give Me Liberty or Death"!
Impressive in-ring action from all 3 woman - a hallmark in XPW Remixed and further prove we are home to the hottest female wrestling action in the
Territory Wars… all 3 women get a chance to shine, with emphasis placed on the “Cippler” Ad Santel at ringside (as he coaches Tamina)… he’s not
above interfering, like when he grabs Wendi Richter’s foot off the ropes… but he finds himself countered by none other than MILDRED BURKE! Long time
thorn-in-the-side to Santel (ever she since she made him “tap” at “Scene of the Crime”), Burke confronts an incredulous Santel before SLUGGING him in
the face with a forearm shiver! The distraction is enough for Natala to clothesline Tamina out of the ring, before eating a Rocker Dropper leg drop
herself for the pinfall loss! Wendi Richter has pinned Nattie again to earn the #1 Contendership!
Winner: WENDI RICHTER (1985)
After the match, Ad Santel (irate beyond all reason) chases Mildred Burke back up the entrance ramp and through the curtains, with every intention
of hurting her… but runs right into a BRASS KNUCKLES SHOT TO THE HEAD from a waiting MIZ! The cocky, former XPW Remixed TV champion fixes his
sarcastic grin and wild, googly eyes upon the downed Santel and rubs the brass knucks in satisfaction (revenge for “Baptized in Blood 2”)… Tamina
finally runs onto the scene but stops when she sees both Burke & Miz standing over her unconscious coach Ad Santel… Miz tells her to make an
announcement to Ad when he wakes up… he wants a piece of Burke in the ring so bad, so be it… at “Give Me Liberty or Death” Miz & Burke will take on
Tamina & Santel in mixed tag team match!
MIL MASCARAS (1975) versus GUNNER (2013) w/ Jessica Darlin (2001)
This segment was CUT from XPW TV Episode #47 (Thesz vs Mr. Perfect)... Gunner & Darlin are the new “power couple” of XPW Remixed… sleazy, shady and
controversial - the video vignette of Darlin’s first run-in with Mascaras is highlighted (she used one of his masks as a cum rag)… suffice to say,
Mexican honor has been seriously besmirched… huge boos for Gunner & Darlin on their entrance… big pop for the ever-popular Mil Mascaras (1975) who
enters with the dual mask bit as fans toss rolls of streamers across the ring… couple of quick roll ups by Mascaras to start (showing off his speed
and dexterity) before things head to the floor… Mascaras starts working on Gunners arm near the ring post, but calls off the attack to confront an
approaching Jessica Darlin… this allows Gunner to blindside Mil from the rear and roll him back in the ring… beat down on Mascaras by Phil “Gunner”
Shatter, showing off the full range of his 2013 power-based offense… Mascaras quickly in bad shape, but only 2 for Gunner… they go back and forth,
with Mascaras rebounding and getting a series of close falls... so Jessica Darlin gets involved but winds up being grabbed by the hair by Mascaras
and thrust into piledriver position and her top pops off!! No digitized cover-up, full exposure, 360 degree rotation around the ring so
everybody sees... and BAM! Gunner attacks Mascaras from behind before he can complete the move... Jessica Darlin scrambles for cover (literally and
figuratively)... Phil "Gunner" Shatter goes completely ballistic, opening up on Mascaras with unrestrained chair shots that even the most
determined man couldn't no-sell... the ref begins ringing the bell frantically...
Winner: MIL MASCARAS (by DQ)
In an impressive display of power, Gunner continues the assault by slamming a metal guardrail on Mil's body in the ring - and then F5ing the
masked man on it afterwards... Mascaras is down, and with Darlin's help - THEY STRIP MIL MASCARAS OF HIS MASK! They RIP it off his head like a
hunter holding up a scalp... but he has another one underneath! The crowd pops! Mil Mascaras uses that one moment of confusion and misdirection to
roll out of the ring where XPW security and medical personnel surround him and escort him to safety... Gunner & Darlin are left holding the empty bag
to an arena-full of boos...
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Another frantic interlude of French Angel rampaging through the backstage area looking for the kidnapped Sammi Lane… here he runs rampant through the
production trucks, causing havoc and wailing like a wounded animal… he’s in such a mode of panic and manic violence that it’s unnerving to see… he
continues the search…
JOHN CENA & ALEXXIS NEVAEH versus CHYNA & LIZZY BORDEN
Shane Douglas leader of the “Revolution” instigated this match by cutting into Cena’s honor, only to reveal his true opponent at the last moment…
since Cena royally “screwed” Douglas out of his one-on-one rematch on the last Episode of XPW TV, now it’s Cena’s turn to be “screwed”!
“Entertainment” segment mostly, with Cena being goaded into the match by Chyna & Lizzy Borden while trying to remain as chivalrous (and non violent
towards women) as possible… he executes a few grade-school takedowns and keep aways on Chyna, but her and Borden’s perverted antics (think Goldust
circa 1996) get in the champs head… finally Shane Douglas’ appearance draws out the XPW Remixed commissioner William Muldoon, who has seen enough of
the lawless revelry here - and he’s changing this into an impromptu tag team match… introducing Cena’s new partner…
Cena & Nevaeh form super-Voltron and go primeval on Chyna & Lizzy Borden’s exposed asses… Alexxis isn’t afraid to lay hands on either one, and does
so with precision force… Cena heaves an interfering Shane Douglas right into a HUGE FUAA that takes him out of the equation, while Alexxis hit’s the
springboard bulldog on Lizzy Borden for the pin!
Winners: JOHN CENA & ALEXXIS NEVAEH
Post match Chyna low blows Cena and treats Alexxis like a rag doll, retaining heat for the heel trio… but with the new “Revolution” getting the
upper hand - none other than Samoa Joe runs in for the save! He tosses Chyna! Scares away Lizzy Borden! He hit’s a shining wizard on Shane Douglas
and pitches him from the ring! Cheers for Joe, but he saves his most vicious attack for John Cena… muscle buster to the champ! Kokina clutch rear
naked choke! Cena is left unconscious on the mat for Samoa Joe to gaze at the Boston championship and hold it aloft in his arms! Death daggers for
Shane Douglas and crew retreating up the aisle!
John Cena defends the XPW Boston championship @ “Give Me Liberty or Death” in a huge “Something 2 Lose” Triple threat match!
** If Cena loses he is no longer the champion! **
** If Samoa Joe loses he can NEVER challenge for the XPW Boston title again! **
** If Shane Douglas loses he is FIRED from XPW Remixed for GOOD! **
Video recap of CZWO vs Black Army feud... The original XPW versus CZW feud (which was NO “work”) began in the late 90s early 2000s and primarily
involved the rights to the Viking Hall in PA… much was lost (and gained) in the wake of that historic event - a “war” won by CZW… but years and
years (or is it mere moments?) later in the fantasy wrestling spectrum, it has been XPW Remixed that has risen from the ashes to produce greatness it
could not muster in life… the success of XPW Remixed in the Territory Wars has been so resounding, it was crowned with “World Title” status… but
that same blessing became a curse when scores of undetected fantasy wrestling personalities began to stir from their slumber… some with great
intentions… some with very bad… amongst the worst is original XPW FOUNDER Rob Black, who has returned from the penal system to stake claim to HIS
creation… His Black Army is like House Batiatus - raised from the sand up to be ruthless, Death Match gladiators… what Black didn’t anticipate
however, was the rise of a singular champion against him - long time nemesis and CZW founder ZANDIG! Reappearing on the scene as “Savior of Xtreme”,
Zandig united former blood enemies (Callihan & Messiah) and created a new foundation for his cause… the CZWO (Combat Zone Wrestling Originals) who
would rebel against Black’s rule and turn his own house against him!
This particular skit actually starts with the “Happy Hour” talk show (hosted by Heath Slater and featuring Honky Tonk Man) in ring… but these two
aren’t particularly “happy” and go off on a huge, boo-inducing rant about Heath Slater & HTM are too good for XPW Remixed and WANT TO GO TO THE AWA!
The land where true artists such as Slater & HTM can get some credit and admiration! Mr. Perfect, take us with you!! The AWA isn’t the land of
ridiculous gimmicks! That world is XPW Remixed, with all it’s “Xtreme” nonsense! You West Coast fans don’t DESERVE to see Slater & HTM in action!
This actually draws homebrewed XPW Remixed son THE MESSIAH from the curtains for a retort… but instead of chastising (or attacking, as the crowd
wanted to see) Slater & HTM for their comments… Messiah embraces them! He goes heel on XPW Remixed as well and touts the cause of the CZWO -
imploring Slater & HTM to join their revolution and leave XPW Remixed behind!
THIS draws the music of ATSUSHI ONITA! The evil Black Army Japanese delegate arrives with his troops - “Prince of Darkness” Kevin Sullivan (w/ Snuff)
& “Crazy Monkey” Jun Kasai… he has some eeeeevvvvilllll words for Messiah, as they surround the ring and Onita indicates ALL outside exits have been
BLOCKED! That means nobody from the outside is getting in, and Messiah is trapped! Suddenly Slater & HTM completely change their tune and are all
pro-XPW Remixed in the face of Onita - who then demands them to honor that commitment and ATTACK Messiah! But before they can, Messiah flies into a
suicidal rage himself and begins brawling with EVERYBODY! Suddenly, XPW security guards fly into action alongside Messiah! They’re wielding
nightsticks and batons, and they use the weapons with reckless abandon upon the Black Army! Security clears the ring and remove their riot gear
helmets to reveal ZANDIG, SAMI CALLIHAN & MADMAN PONDO… the CZWO! They rebel against House Batiatus (Black Army) from within and overtake the ring!
A prelude to the WAR they will wage at “Give Me Liberty or Death” for control of the KotDM championship! We close the segment with Heath Slater & HTM
offering their sincere servitude to the CZWO - only to have Zandig break a guitar over Slater’s head! Stretch muffler from Sami has Slater tapping
out! Godsmack (firemans carry into stunner) from Messiah to HTM! Play the CZWO music!!
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Rushed, frenetic backstage scene with Rob Black raging against another CZWO uprising, before being approached by XPW Remixed commissioner William
Muldoon… he says Black’s struggles are karmic retribution and Muldoon is eager to defeat the traitor Hakushi Kuro @ “GMLoD” and deny Onita & Black
the opportunity for more power… Muldoon is trying to help French Angel find Sammi Lane, and vows that if it comes out Rob Black was behind the
kidnapping - Muldoon will raze the Black Army himself… but Rob Black doesn’t need Muldoon’s booking help - he has his own plan and it comes to
Segment starts with a backstage promo from SABIAN who is putting himself over hardcore… until a slanty-eyed, chuckling Ruckus makes his way into the
scene to antagonize is former partner further… big talk from Sabian over how close he came to winning the X-Division championship at TNA Destination
X, and would’ve had the chance to leave this godforsaken hellhole once and for all! But Ruckus kindly reminds him he LOST that match, which segues
into a humorous bit with PG-13 showing up on the scene with a custom-made “rap” for Sabian… but this draws out the returning JTG, who has some words
for PG-13 himself (they jumped him on a previous XPW Online episode)… things turn from funny to serious when none other than BIG SHAD GASPARD saunters
into the scene behind JTG & Sabian! The reunited Cryme Tyme bolsters Sabian’s ego even further and we get this next tag team match… Ruckus as always
shines like a superstar, and is primed for a solo run… but the domination of PG-13 by Cryme Tyme (especially JTG who has a point to prove) is the
difference maker… Sabian uses illegal double teams and a blindside BLK Jeez stomp onto Wolfie D’s head to end the match in his favor… once more,
Sabian (aka the “BLK Jeez”) is the star of an Xtreme-styled match… he is now a globe-trotting, international, mainstream SUPERSTAR (according to
him)… and he will blow like a HURRICANE through anyone who claims to be champion!
Winners: SABIAN & CRYME TYME 2.0
Sabian is the BLKJeez of fantasy wrestling who will STOMP any so-called "X-Division" pretenders to his throne...
** Promo from Jinder Mahal - directed at former serf GREAT GAMA… Mahal ended Gama’s legendary undefeated streak and will end his fantasy wrestling
career once and for ALL when Mahal challenges Gama to a match at the PPV! Gama has been chasing Mahal everywhere, so "Falls Count Anywhere!" **
** Response from Gama, who is found silently concentrating and training in the bowels of the arena… when alerted to Mahal’s challenge he flies into a
destructive rage (displaying his “world’s strongest man” feats) before shouting some kind of indecipherable words that sure sound an awful lot like a
“YES” to Mahal’s challenge… GREAT GAMA versus JINDER MAHAL @ “Give Me Liberty or Death”! **
** Backstage skit that starts with Paul Bowser (Cena’s business advisor) on his cellphone talking about sealing a talent transition deal, when “Wild”
Red Berry walks into the scene… Berry & Bowser exchange some tenuous words about a piece of talent that TNA owner (and close Paul Bowser ally) LOGAN
BOGGS is highly coveting, but “Wild” Red Berry has a managerial ace in the hole he wants Bowser & Boggs to pay close attention to… “Wild” Red Berry
is about to unleash the solo superstar of the century… **
** Video package of the mysterious assault suffered by Sheamus, and the reveal of his attacker (Matt Morgan & Buddy Rogers)… segues into a promo from
Sheamus where he challenges Morgan to meet him in a match @ “Give Me Liberty or Death’…**
** We finish a backstage altercation between Alex Riley & Human Tornado (over Tornado’s interference last XPW Online) that turns violent when Missy
Hyatt gets involved… they brawl all over the catering area, until Hyatt winds up with a huge piece of pie SMASHED in her face to end the segment…
Riley & Tornado want a piece of each other @ “GMLoD”!! **
XPW World champion LOU THESZ has been warned by doctors NOT to compete at "Give Me Liberty or Death", or risk permanent damage to his arm... but
after Lou's championship promo with MSD in the back, you know he's not gonna quit. This is a matter of personal pride now.
Del Rio on the other hand holds all the aces. Recruited by the Black Army regime, he is the centerpiece of a championship match deal that got Rob
Black the job in the first place. Del Rio has some chilling words for Thesz on what is going to happen to him @ "GMLoD"... Del Rio has a destiny
Thesz vs Del Rio for the XPW World title @ "GMLoD"!!

SNUFF (w/ Kevin Sullivan) (Xtreme Rulez "Fire Death Match")
The "Action" part of our co-main event tonight... crazy, Xtreme, fire and blood... Snuff uses a metal spike slid to him by manager Kevin
Sullivan... Sheik gets his licks in too but falls prey to a Kevin Sullivan fireball to the face (oh the delicious irony) that plunges Sheik off the
apron through a burning table...
Post match Sullivan & Snuff grab up The Grand Wizard, and to huge cheers actually powerbomb the guy OFF the entrance ramp into a burning dumpster -
where he disappears from sight and is obstensibly "killed off"... Snuff & Sullivan are the final, scary, hazy, smokey fade out shot at the
Black Army is looking for CZWO, but they aren’t hiding… MadMan Pondo ambushes several guards near the upper level entry (where management is)
attempting to get in, but the ambush fails… luckily the rest of the CZWO are on the scene for the save…
Cut to the actual Black Army inner sanctum, and Jack Pfefer has a conversation with Dean Ambrose that convinces him TAZ has been working with the CZWO
the entire time… Dean Ambrose is infused with the will to slay the “human suplex machine” and relay Black‘s message to the CZWO personally… Dean
Ambrose exit’s the office (cameras tailing) and cuts through the destruction and chaos around him to confront Zandig and his troops face-to-face… but
instead of offering death and retribution - Ambrose offers a compromise… he wants Messiah, Callihan & Pondo to “come home”, switch allegiances and
betray the CZWO in return for great glory, money and title shots!
Camera shots show uneasy discord between members of the CZWO as they apparently consider the offer in their minds… but the offer is DECLINED when
revealed that Zandig will be KILLED upon surrender and his followers will once again become slaves! Dean Ambrose begins to depart, when Sami Callihan
(ex partner in Switchblade Conspiracy) speaks up and demand the CZWO execute Ambrose! Zandig agrees with this and all move menacingly towards
When we are all interrupted by Rob Black in the ring, speaking up to get everybody’s attention - especially the CZWO in the back who are alerted to
his comments when the backstage monitors flare to life… he reiterates his cause and purpose (KotDM belt) and we get a quick run down of the “Cage of
Death” match to be hosted between them at “Give Me Liberty or Death”… it’s basically an extreme war games match, with two members starting off, a new
member joins every 60 seconds… once everyone is in the cage, the “match beyond” begins, weapons come in and the first team to score a decision wins
the match… just to prove how devastating, dominating and EVIL his empire is… he calls for KILO and the kidnapped Sammi Lane! Rob Black promises all
kinds of evil depravity towards his captured foe, until finally the FRENCH ANGEL tears into the ring for the save! But of course it’s just a set-up,
as the numbers game takes over and Sammi Lane must watch in horror as they torture and beat her man French Angel (all the while Black is promising
this will happen to the CZWO - it’s like Glaber in “Spartacus: Vengeance”; crucifying any slave who dare WHISPER Spartacus’ name)… then, with a
wounded French Angel begging for his companions life - Rob Black orders Kilo to POWERBOMB SAMMI LANE FROM THE RING THROUGH A TABLE ON THE ARENA
FLOOR!! Holy s***! French Angel loses his mind, but is still being held hostage… Sammi Lane was just tossed from the ring through a table!
Finally Zandig comes up with a plan to ambush the in-ring encampment, and they wind up rappelling into the arena from the balcony from behind… the
battle between CZWO & Black Army rages on… Zandig is about to get his hands on Rob Black once and for all, when Dean Ambrose appears to pull Black to
safety once more… Rob Black boasts that the destruction of the Black Army will only bring many more legions of infernal soldiers after the CZWO - and
the rebels will never win in the long run…
Segment ends with a camera shot of mournful French Angel wailing in the back of an ambulance as paramedics wheel out his beloved Sammi Lane…

XPW TV Episode #49
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
XPW Remixed: the World is Yours... that is the message that reverberated through the fantasy wrestling eons on the night of “Give Me Liberty or
Death”… on that night, the seeds of warfare were sprinkled with the blood of independence to herald the dawning of a new era in the Territory Wars…
On this night stalwart champions were dethroned, rebel forces arose and destiny was seized… Now - with XPW Remixed cementing itself as THE Fantasy
Wrestling proving ground - and greatest organization in Territory Wars history - there is only one place to go… and that’s higher… higher than the
Empire State building…
Solie & Striker review the events of "GMLoD", and Matt Striker dissects the last few moments of the XPW World championship fight like one
would the JFK Assassination tape… (the "tap" of Lou Thesz was actually a readjustment of alignment on Lou's behalf - the referee
jumped the gun)... they also hype up future events... we have two huge seminal events in company history coming up on the way to “Damage Inc 2”…
first, next week will be the LAST EPISODE of XPW Online! That’s right, a star-studded, all-star, gala SERIES FINALE! Then, in an epic display of
consistency and high-value - XPW Television will be producing it’s landmark FIFTIETH EPISODE! How many organization in Territory Wars history can lay
stake to that claim? Just about as many that claim “WORLD TITLE” status! Virtually none! And those that do will find themselves trembling in the
wake of DAMAGE INC 2!!
All that, but FIRST tonight - you will see THREE championships defended! RVD defends his TV title against Sabian! Awesome Kong defends the XPW
Woman's championship against #1 contender SABLE 1998!! And finally, XPW invaders WORLD'S GREATEST TAG TEAM (Haas & Benjamin) defend their
newly-minted XPW Tag team titles against former champions the MCMG!! OMGEEZY can XPW Remixed get any BIGGER!!
** WE DON'T DO JOBBER SQUASHES OVER HERE, BOYEEEE!! **
Scarface-themed mini-movie reviewing Del Rio’s victory at “Give Me Liberty or Death”… now Del Rio finds the world truly is yours and his rise to XPW
power mirrors that of the great Tony Montana… Aberto Del Rio’s “submission” victory over Lou Thesz puts him firmly in the drivers seat - and the show
opens with his glamorous, championship entrance and coronation… XPW President Ed “Strangler Lewis & VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt both greet him graciously
in the ring and everyone is all smiles and pictures… Del Rio gets a promo to transform “Destiny” into “Dynasty” when we’re finally (and thankfully
interrupted) by former champion LOU THESZ!
Boardwalk Empire-chic for Thesz tonight as he gives Del Rio hell on the mic, before procuring a manila evidence envelope that he says is further
reason to grant his immediate rematch clause (both Solie & Striker amongst others are from the school of thought that Thesz did NOT submit @ “GMLoD”)…
what is in the envelope? Lewis, Mondt & Del Rio don’t even want to hear it, when suddenly - JOHN CENA’S theme song cues up!
At the spoken utterance of “money match” (RE: “Damage Inc 2” main event) and “championship franchise”, we bear witness to the physical conjuration of
such things… the Franchise himself JOHN CENA! Just when things seemed to get a little hairy for Thesz, Cena shows up to even the odds… he plays on
Del Rio’s ego, questions Rob Black & Mondt’s manipulations and makes fun of Ed Lewis’ pot belly (fat boy jokes & “failed restaurant” quips)… you see,
Cena is out here because after Lou gets his rematch and wins back the XPW title… the REAL money match will be “THESZ versus CENA” @ “DI2” for the XPW
World title!! HUGE POP from the crowd at the thought of the ULTIMATE dream match! Cena versus Thesz; something that’s NEVER been booked - although
the seeds of their feud were planted all the way back on BCCW TV #1!!! (that’s when I first started fantasy booking, period!!) Cena and Thesz go
nose-to-nose, their intensity reverberating through the TV screen! But they’re quickly interrupted and separated by Del Rio - himself the XPW World
champion! And he is IRATE at being upstaged on his grandest day! Alberto Del Rio gets a brief chance to scold and chastise them on the mic, but when
he gets to his “I’m a submission expert” part… we get our 3rd and final interruption of the segment… the Samoan Submission machine SAMOA JOE (!?!?)
Enter Samoa Joe and he is PISSED! He verbally accosts Cena for his “conspiracy” to rid himself of competition (Striker credits Paul Bowsers expertly
crafted stipulations for Cena’s “GMLoD” match that could have potentially eliminated Shane Douglas & Samoa Joe forever had he won)… then Joe bodies
right up to Thesz with his “Best of 7” series victory over Bruno Sammartino to carry the weight of his ominous threats… before turning to face Del
Rio at the end (to a big pop and “JOE’S GONNA KILLLL YOUUUUU” chants)… XPW President Ed “Strangler” Lewis intercedes at the last moment to save the
day… he says each of them make valid points, and after a brief conference they’ve come to a decision… we have TWO HUGE milestone events in company
history on the road to “Damage Inc 2” (aka “DI2”)… XPW TV Episode #50... And XPW Online #23 (the SERIES FINALE)!! We need some big time, huge,
marquee main event headline matches for those occasions… and XPW Remixed has just the solution… it’s time for John Cena & Samoa Joe to establish
their place in the pecking order once and for all - so on the LAST EPISODE OF XPW ONLINE EVER (the Season Finale!) - Cena will face Samoa Joe in a #1
Contenders match! They will then get a chance to rest and train as their eventual “DI2” opponent will be revealed on the NEXT XPW TV EPISODE when Lou
Thesz takes on Del Rio in his championship rematch! Angry 4-way stand off to end the segment, framed by the smiling (or is it “smirking?”) face of
Mondt & Lewis!
JOHN CENA versus SAMOA JOE (#1 Contenders Match) XPW Online Season Finale!!
** XPW World Championship Match **
THESZ versus DEL RIO
II XPW TV Episode #50!!
Inside the Black Army inner sanctum (still torn asunder from Black’s outburst @ “GMLoD”)… Rob Black is venting to his camp (including lawyer
scumbag Jack Pfefer, “Prince of Darkness” Kevin Sullivan, Japanese delegate Onita and star soldier Dean Ambrose)… Rob Black is irate over their loss
@ “GMLoD” and demands they take action tonight to strengthen his cause - or find themselves cut for good… and with Rob Black you never know exactly
what kind of “cut” you may get…
Highlights of each woman’s victory at “GMLoD” - and how their respective fantasy arcs are about to collide… XPW Remixed continues to be the
trend-setting force of the Territory Wars when it comes to producing the hottest women’s action… There are many imitators but none can claim the
level of talent as XPW Remixed…. The bell rings and a loud “Sable” chant makes it’s way through the crowd… Awesome Kong is simply intimidating… the
entire crux of her “ripping heads off Barbie dolls” statement manifests itself tonight in her battle with Sable - pro wrestling history’s version of
Barbie… they start with a lock-up and Kong easily sends Sable into the corner… but Sable quickly fights back with lightening fast strikes and J-Lo
“Enough”-styled kick boxing! She momentarily stuns Kong to big cheers, and hits some kind of Lady Gaga-inspired monster pose… she keeps up the
attack on Kong, but the Awesome one catches her in mid-move and hits a big release fallaway slam… Kong with some hard strikes to Sable’s head… the
XPW Remixed woman’s champion charges at Sable in the corner, but she dodges it by slipping out of the ring and pulling Kong out by the foot… Sable
then slides back in the ring to try a baseball slide… but Kong sidesteps it and ends that rally by hurling Sable unobstructed into the guard rail!
Now it’s all Awesome Kong and she makes mince meat of the smaller Sable (allowing her to ratchet up the sympathy beating)… Kong is vicious by
seemingly targeting Sable’s face, and trying to claw it and smash it off the metal guard rails… Kong screams for Solie & Striker to get the f out of
the way as the woman battle over by the announce table… Awesome Kong snatches Sable up in gorilla press-slam position and is about to HURL her body
at Solie and Striker!… but stops at the last moment (with Solie & Striker both jumping and flinching)… instead, Kong just laughs at them, and tosses
Sable back into the ring… on commentary, Solie & Striker did NOT like that little stunt… In the ring, Kong works on Sable in the corner with some
rights and a choke… but when Kong sends Sable into the opposite corner - Sable jumps up and attempts a twisting dive… but misses when Kong simply
sidesteps, and her brief rally is over already… Kong works on Sable‘s back with stiff forearms, kicks and a weardown hold… finally Sable fights
back with some rights, dodges, darts, and winds up snagging a jumping bulldog on Kong into the center of the ring! 1!.. 2!.. Kickout! Oh my the
closest near fall of the match; Sable almost did the impossible… Sable keeps her down and with much fanfare, announces her intention to execute a top
rope maneuver… but as Sable reaches the top turnbuckle - Kong springs to her feet to strike with a spinning back fast! Sable gets crotched on the
turnbuckle and Kong launches her into the stratosphere with another press slam… Sable hits hard… Kong measures her… waits for Sable to drag herself
to her feet… before pouncing on her like a giant cat of prey and hitting a devastating Implant Buster for the finish… Sable certainly was defiant,
and proved she’s not just another pretty face… but Awesome Kong is on another level… and so is the XPW Remixed woman’s division… fuck ROH.
Winner (and STILL XPW Woman’s champion): AWESOME KONG
Hot August Fight… summer sizzling heat on the street… XPW Remixed continues to ratchet up the intensity of the Territory Wars as it continues it’s
Summer of War… cue theme song and entrance of the volatile loose cannon TAZ (2000)! Plucked at the height (ha ha, get it?) of his glory he is
portrayed as the ultimate wrestling mercenary… his runs through ECW are legendary, his WWF debut was a rousing success (choking out an undefeated
Olympian at Royal Rumble 2000) and now he’s here in XPW Remixed with a mission and a “FTW” championship belt… his own personal “Path of Rage” that
blew through ECW and crowned WWF will now find a home in the realest fantasy wrestling org in the universe… Angry Taz promo that has to be edited in
some parts… F[edited] Podcasts!.. F[edited] WWF! (cheer) F TNA! (cheer)... and F XPW Remixed! (boooo!!)... Taz beat Dean Ambrose @
“GMLoD”, thus defeating “XPW” and their foolish claims to ECW‘s legacy… now he wants to send that same message to fellow imposter copycats the CZWO!
So Taz is calling OUT Reigning KotDM champion (newly crowned @ “GMLoD”)… ZANDIG!
TAZZ (2000) versus THE MESSIAH (2002)
But instead of Zandig - he gets CZWO member (and bi-coastal turncoat) THE MESSIAH… Messiah started wrestling as an XPW original… he ended across the
country in CZW.. And tonight he answers Taz directly from that rough-strewn hemisphere of Combat Zone Wrestling 2002... This isn’t just another XPW
Remixed dream match… it’s a nightmare… in generous terms it can be qualified as a “competitive squash”… Messiah is surprisingly (to him) overwhelmed
by the buzz saw Taz and cut down to size with a variety of crushing suplexes and shoot holds… Taz-mission locked on in the center of the ring -
nobody comes to Messiah’s aid - and he taps out! Messiah taps out, but Taz keeps the hold on until he turns blue and passes out…
Winner (by submission): TAZ
Dean Ambrose aims to prove his worth.
Post match we get the ill layered, storyline breakdown of Taz being sneak attacked by Dean Ambrose - who reveals a last moment alliance with Jinder
Mahal - who finally introduces his newest charge SABU (see “GMLoD”)… and we come full circle with Taz colliding with the present, future and then
past of XPW Remixed in one segment… but Taz ain’t having it - and his brawl with Sabu only sparks a greater fire in him - by the time GREAT GAMA
roars onto the scene like a primeval savage (tearing guard rails, guards and steel ring steps asunder on his way to seeking vengeance upon Mahal &
Sabu)… Ambrose flees, Taz & Sabu brawl - Mahal gets the hell out of town with Gama fast on his tail… “XPW! XPW!” chants win the day.
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE VIGNETTE **
An irate MESSIAH has stormed backstage (still selling his wounds) to confront stablemate Sami Callihan - he TOO who is mysteriously "selling the
wounds" of a beatdown as well.. Messiah is outraged that coming from the camp that preaches "loyalty" nobody came to his back when Taz
was choking him to death! But Sami Callihan claims he was set upon by a mysterious trenchcoat wearing GHOST that beat him down and rendered him
unable to help! Messiah doesn't believe it and storms angrily from the room yelling "JOHN!! JOHN!! (looking for Zandig) while Callihan
holds his head and mutters about "ghosts" and "Haunts"...
BAM BAM BIGELOW versus BULL RAMOS (Falls Count Anywhere Match)
This match actually starts out as a backstage segment, with manager “Wild” Red Berry is getting ready to make his big proclamation - touting his new
singles superstar of the FUTURE! All this talk about “future singles superstar” obviously stirs the pot of both Bigelow & Ramos (each who assumes
*they* are the one Berry is referring to)… and instead of squashing the display of aggressive testosterone between the two behemoths - the diabolical
and wily Berry actually fans those flames until the aforementioned BRAWL break out! Bam Bam is 6’4” almost 300 pounds… Ramos is over 6 feet and 250
lbs… these are BIG dudes and that size is fully accentuated in the backstage setting - where they demolish the locker room area and set pieces like
King Kong battling Godzilla… a lot of primeval grunting, but the dialogue exchange is unmistakable in a setting devoid of crowd noise… Bigelow’s
violent temper and ego has been stoked and he is dead set on taking Ramos out once and for all… Bull Ramos the Indian war chief believes Bam Bam is
at fault for their failings as a tag team… and Wild Red Berry is the maestro playing both sides like a fiddle… Bigelow actually drives Ramos THROUGH
a locker room door and then a wooden bench with a power slam - before Wild Red Berry himself counts the 3-count (after exhorting Bigelow to unleash a
concussive series of head butts that left both men weary and dazed)…
Winner (?): BAM BAM BIGELOW
Wild Red Berry of course waits until the very end before laughing at Bigelow’s ignorance, and proclaiming “I never said the singles superstar of
the future was YOU! How silly of you to misconstrue me!!” Berry takes a quick swipe at TNA and their ignoramus of a talent coordinator Logan Boggs -
before introducing his “singles superstar of the future”…
Introducing to XPW Remixed…
Bigelow is all like “WHAAAAT!?!?!” Berry is all like “indeed!” Sandow winks, smiles, nods and condescendingly pats Bigelow’s beaten tattooed
skull while saying “you’re welcome”… Sandow & Berry exit stage left leaving an exasperated, bloody and battered Bigelow behind in rage and
Rob Black’s army enters the ring and the ringleader himself is NOT pleased… he fights through the vulgar crowd chants to express this dismay - both
with the “fans” who have deserted him - the CZWO who has scorned him - and his own Army that has failed him! Rob Black uses this opportunity to hype
the once-a-year, XPW Remixed specialty the SLAUGHTAHOUSE STAMPEDE! A combination Bunkhouse Brawl/Royal Rumble/Xtreme Rulez match - and it’s the most
physically taxing and dangerous match in the Territory Wars today…
He tries calling out the CZWO and leader Zandig for stealing the KotDM championship - but instead gets DANNY HAVOC.. The snarky, sarcastic Havoc
speaks for all the internet and smark marks when he lambastes Rob Black for his bad taste and general douchiness… this segues to Danny Havoc bravely
(“foolishly”) getting involved in a “one-on-one” scrap with Black Army associate Kevin Sullivan (eager to prove his worthiness) - but it quickly
becomes a massacre when Onita, Kasai & Snuff jump in... but then in trademark XPW Remixed fashion - all hell breaks loose...
The Original SHEIK hops the guard rail and attacks Snuff! NEW JACK run-in (with rap soundtrack and trash can of weapons)!! Meanwhile - Sandman and
bald Necro Butcher are spotted watching from a private box, shaking their heads and mocking the insanity... Segment finishes with the climatic run-in
and ring clearing actions of MadMan Pondo and CZWO leader ZANDIG! After once again securing the ring - Zandig flaunts his KotDM championship - says
the CZWO won @ "GMLoD" because they believe in loyalty - while the Black Army believes in nothing... and enters his CZWO camp into the
Slaughtahouse Stampede as well - vowing to run Black & crew out of Fantasy Wrestling for GOOD!
CZWO leader & KotDM champion ZANDIG has the last word!
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Backstage office skit with solidified (get it?) XPW Remixed Commissioner “The Solid Man” William Muldoon showing he takes his position very seriously…
he unveils a ranking system for the XPW Television title - uses deft professional verbiage to disarm Harvard law graduate David Otunga and tell him
his client Gorgeous George does NOT automatically get another title shot - and uses East Coast last coast Tuff tawk to counter a raging Atsushi Onita
(who lost his chance to become XPW Remixed commissioner when his guy Hakushi Kuro lost @ “GMLoD”)… Onita is the last to storm into the Commissioners
office and last to leave - but not before hurling more ominous threats and overturning furniture on his way out… you see, Muldoon has booked a big
time match for XPW TV Episode #50... Hakushi Kuro versus Jun Kasai in an Xtreme Rulez match and Onita is NOT pleased his two wrestlers must battle…
Onita also throws some salt in Muldoon’s wound RE: his pupil Tommaso Ciampa’s desertion…
Hilarious vignette with a brown-nosing "Real Deal" Damien Steele looking all over for Alberto Del Rio - with full intentions of becoming
the champions personal valet (a position he heard through the grapevine is suddenly available)... but when he finally reaches the champs locker room
- he finds the position has already been filled... by RICARDO RODRIGUEZ!! Funny, quick little Spanglish banter between the two that leaves
Steele flustered and jaw agape...
The match starts with Sabian swaggering to the ring, with his new crew consisting of old ally Michael Tarver and the newly-reunited Cryme Tyme 2.0...
Blistering promo from Sabian that is straight from the street corners of Killadelphia PA (and gets MASSIVE boos from the native West Coast audience)…
Sabian gets the whole crowd riled up - sexually harasses a few female ringside fans - and encourages the wild wolf pack antics of his crew - when
finally the “Whole FN Show” makes his entrance… “RVD 4:20” and other pot-related verbiage sprout up like weeds on nearby signs and posters… in
action, Sabian gets a few elbows, but RVD fights back with his “educated feet” and floors Sabian with a spinning potato kick right to the kisser… RVD
drives his knee into Sabian’s head a few times, hit’s a standing moonsault, and then grounds a resilient Sabian with a headlock takeover… Tarver &
Cryme Tyme 2.0 continue to stir emotions at ringside… Sabian gets out of the headlock and brawls RVD back into the turnbuckles… he goes for the
choke until the ref is forced to break it up… more taunts from Sabian, and he hits RVD with a pinpoint running dropkick to the face - giving him
whiplash in the corner… Sabian covers, but only gets a two count.
Sabian sends RVD into the ropes and hit’s a hurricanrana that sends RVD right out of the ring… Sabian quickly distracts the referee, allowing Tarver
& Cryme Tyme 2.0 to triple team RVD on the outside! Just then - the theme song for WILLIAM MULDOON interrupts! Enter the XPW Remixed commissioner!
He quickly uses his authority to BAN Tarver & Cryme Tyme from ringside! Big time pop for that decree from the crowd, while the angry and belligerent
thugs yell and cry “RACISM!!” By the time all of this unfolds, RVD has suitably recuperated - and takes over on offense… He whips Sabian hard into
the ringside steps… hit’s a springboard kick… hit’s the spinning kick to the back of the neck off the apron… then scales the top turnbuckle - does
the “RVD” thumb point and crowd chant - before cannonball OFF the top rope - OVER the crowd barricade - ONTO Sabian with a somersault plancha! “HOLY
S***!” and “XPW! XPW!” chants! Not soon thereafter, after another thrilling in-ring exchange, RVD leaves Sabian flattened with a Five-Star frogsplash
for the finish… exciting, aerial dog fight between two of the highest flyers in the game…
Winner (and STILL XPW TV champion): ROB VAN DAM
Post match we get a violent and ugly run-in by FOCUS! David Otunga & Gorgeous George Wagner (w/ GG's aid) sneak attack RVD and David
Otunga's final "statement" on behalf of his client is SCREW Commissioner Muldoon's ranking system - this is going to keep
happening to everybody ranked above the Gorgeous one until the time the "Human Orchid" gets his title rematch!! Take a look at your last
and future XPW TV champion! Gorgeous George Wagner (1950)!!
Kevin Sullivan promo putting over his big man - he can’t get his hands on Muldoon but he does use the power of crowd persuasion to draw out Sid
Vicious… Sullivan is intent on proving his worth to the Black Army and does so by orchestrating his classic wrestling hit… Snuff & Sid Vicious
engage in a hellacious, spontaneous big man brawl that spills ringside and into the first row of fans… but it ends quickly when Sullivan slides a
metal spike to Snuff for a weapon… but the most shocking, horrifying aspect of the assault happens post match - when Sid Vicious is essentially
written out and “killed off” like Ken Patera and The Grand Wizard before him… in this case he’s savaged with the spike (necessitating a manly blade
job from Sid) before being choke slammed off the entrance ramp through a side stage area (set ablaze by Kevin Sullivan)…
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE VIGNETTE **
Paul Bowser (legendary Boston area promoter and John Cena’s XPW Remixed manager) is on a somber cell phone call… he appears to be discussing the
loss of a talent with friend, associate and partner Logan Boggs when none other than “Wild” Red Berry saunters into the scene - it’s clear he’s very
well aware that his coup of Damien Sandow hurt TNA’s recruiting process and he’s very glad - just to stick it to Bowser, Boggs and B&B&B Enterprises…
but Paul Bowser only smiles and has the last word when he introduces HIS newest signees - THE MCMG! And they’re going to regain their XPW Remixed tag
team titles TONIGHT! Berry is outraged and his multi-syllabic vocabulary fails him now!
An enraged Sheamus calls out Matt Morgan and Buddy Rogers RE: their crooked victory at “GMLoD”… he wants a rematch but of course a cocky,
condescending Morgan & Rogers see no reason to do that… but over the course of the promo - using the power of the live crowd (and the entrance of
gun-slinging lawmaker Commissioner Muldoon) - Sheamus does manage to squeeze one bit of copper from the notoriously stingy duo… a match on the epic
level XPW TV Episode #50... Between Sheamus and “Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers! If Sheamus wins he’ll get his rematch against Morgan! Fair deal! Even
though Sheamus and the fans are the only ones pleased, while Rogers & Morgan tear their suit coats off in conniptions…
SHEAMUS (2012) versus "NATURE BOY" BUDDY ROGERS (1963)!!
Only on XPW TV Episode #50!!
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE PROMOS **
Samoa Joe snarls - Del Rio sneers - Cena speaks from the heart RE: their upcoming challenges in becoming (or in Del Rio's case, "staying") XPW
Remixed champion... in another vignette, MSD catches up with Lou Thesz and questions him about the contents of the manila folder he presented in the
opening segment... Thesz says it is an investigative report ran on the referee who officiated his title loss to Del Rio... alot of shady
coincidences and other dark marks taint his record... more info on that come XPW Online #23 (SERIES FINALE)!!
Review of crazy ending to PPV tag team title match (with a focus primarily on the FabKangs & MCMG… curiously whitewashing that 3rd team completely)…
until XPW “invaders” Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin (aka “World’s Greatest Tag Team”) showed up to steal the title belts… tonight they enter first
(to huge boos) and get a chance to put themselves over on the mic and flaunt the belts… by the time Sabin & Shelley get their high-octane entrance,
the crowd has been suitably lathered… In action, Charlie Haas and Alex Shelley lock up to start… Shelley with quick offense early on - sending Haas
to the corner… but the larger Haas answers with a big hip toss and dropkick combo... Haas with a high back body drop on Sabin when he jumps in the
ring, but Sabin lands on his feet! So Shelton Benjamin enters the fray but is met with a crisp double dropkick by the MCMG! The WGTT are fast - but
MCMG are faster! Hass & Benjamin regroup on the outside - until Shelley fakes them out - makes them jump - right into an unseen Chris Sabin
springboard senton! Back in the ring, Benjamin (now the legal man) gets in a deep arm drag on Shelley and starts working the arm… slowing the match
down and grinding out the Guns with expert mat work… Benjamin with an atomic drop and T-bone suplex that floors Shelley, but still can’t get 3...
Benjamin impresses with a modified leg drop over onto Shelley before Sabin starts jawing with the ref… Tag to Haas and WGTT double team Shelley -
leapfrog on the top ring rope… on a 2nd attempt, Sabin pulls Haas down by his hair with the referee distracted… Sabin with an air tag behind the
referee’s back (to a big pop) before angrily flying into offense against WGTT.. Sabin sends Haas into the corner with force and blisters his chest
with chops… a huge springboard dropkick knocks Shelton Benjamin off the ring apron…
Haas fights back, and he and Benjamin take over with some illegal double teams… an eye rake and snap mare keep Sabin grounded and in the capable
hands of Shelton Benjamin… tag back to Haas who switches off to hold Sabin in a front choke… but no quit in the former champions… the crowd rallies
behind MCMG and Sabin begins fighting back… so Hass kicks Sabin in the face and reaches for a tag with Benjamin… but Sabin pulls him back in at the
last moment and hits an enziguri to Charlie’s head! Both men down… Sabin scores a last second desperate jawbreaker, and hot tags Alex Shelley! He
clears the ring with a series of right hands and a big dropkick… big side kick to Hass… tilt-a-whirl head scissors on Shelton Benjamin - then the
MCMG combine for a sick flying bulldog combo - into synchronized top rope dives!! They BOTH go for the pin on their guys, but BOTH Haas & Benjamin
kick out at the last second! The crowd intensity is palpable… . Sabin launches Benjamin to the ring apron but Shelton super kicks him in the face in
an incredibly agile spot… Haas slingshots over Shelley and Benjamin hits a running clothesline taking out Sabin… Shelton Benjamin with a neckbreaker
on Sabin for a real close two count in the ring… Shelton Benjamin hoists Chris Sabin onto his shoulders in electric chair fashion, as Haas prepares
to launch himself off the top rope… but Sabin reverses at the last moment into a victory roll! Alex Shelley comes out of nowhere to hit a
hurricanrana on Charlie Hass, and snap him off the top turnbuckle! Sabin has Benjamin’s shoulders down in the victory roll! 1!.. 2!.. 3!! NEW TAG
TEAM CHAMPIONS! The look of SHOCK upon the WGTT! The look of ELATION upon MCMG! And the fans wild, rapid response to fuel it all…
Winners (and NEW XPW Tag Team champions): MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS!!
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker close the show from the announce table (like a post game show, with the crowds empting out behind them) and discuss the
results… they hype up the SERIES FINALE of XPW Online next week and of course the epic-level (EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC - how do you like THAT, AWA??)
XPW TV Episode #50! Followed by “Damage Inc 2” at the end of the month! XPW Remixed is a stone’s throw away from achieving fantasy wrestling
immortality! Join us on the road to “Damage Inc 2”!!

XPW Online #23 (SERIES FINALE!!!)
Introducing your host for tonight...
Dropping any pretense of a character, Colt Cabana - the Podcast veteran - is in the studio for guest duties... and it's only appropriate that
we end this cycle on a full circle note, as Colt Cabana was the very FIRST XPW Online host before a contract dispute necessitated his removal (I added
him from the free agent pool, only to have somebody else tell me they already had him - weeks after I started using him!) Tonight... It’s the end of
an era… and the start of a new chapter. Tonight we are broadcasting LIVE from an undisclosed location in Los Angeles, where XPW Remixed is
presenting the LAST EPISODE of it’s landmark Online show! We’re promising an all-star gala affair in honor of this achievement - and it all climaxes
with our titanic main event… JOHN CENA (2012) takes on SAMOA JOE (2007) to determine the #1 contender for the XPW Remixed World championship!! Where
one avenue ends another road emerges and XPW Remixed has elevated to the next level! Complete internet takeover! Join the revolution or catch the
FABULOUS KANGAROOS (w/ Wild Red Berry)
WORLDS GREATEST TAG TEAM
Former XPW Remixed tag team champions THE FABULOUS KANGAROOS and their entire entourage (including manager Wild Red Berry, and American & Australian
flag bearers) get the big entrance and scattered pockets of cheers - as their opponents for the night are even more hated within the XPW Remixed fan
spectrum… the “invading”, big-league presence of two of the most legit names in fantasy wrestling today - Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas… the
“World’s Greatest Tag Team”… Shelton Benjamin & FabKang #1 Al Costello start the match and even the FabKangs heel-ish stall tactics are met with some
cheers (as their antics clearly get under the skin of the WGTT)… Benjamin tries to get his hands on Costello, but the FabKang quickly tags in his
partner Roy Heffernan before contact is made… FabKang 2 Roy Heffernan ducks and gets in a quick right jab to Shelton Benjamin... Heffernan wins the
slugfest, so Benjamin locks in a side headlock… FabKang #2 shoves Benjamin off into the ropes and we get a criss-cross, leap frog from Benjamin but
he get’s floored with a stiff shoulder block from Heffernan… Shelton Benjamin answers with a quick right followed by a scoop slam… but Benjamin
misses the elbow drop and Heffernan tags in FabKang #1 Al Costello… he hits an atomic drop and a side leg sweep on Shelton, before hammering him
into the mat with a hard knee drop to the skull… but only a 2 count… both Haas & Heffernan wind up getting tagged in… Lock up and Haas out muscles
Heffernan into the corner, but eats a huge boot on a charge… FabKang #2 Heffernan almost takes Charlie‘s head off with a clothesline for a big cheer…
Charlie Haas begs off but retaliates with a thumb to the eye and lights into Heffernan‘s chest with chops… but the FabKang (with crowd cheering them
on completely now) no-sells them, and yells for more! Haas hit’s a series of stiff chops - but FabKang #2 Roy Heffernan reverses his momentum -
buries Haas in the corner - and blasts him repeatedly with knife edge chops of his own!!
Haas counters with a HUGE release german suplex and tags in Shelton Benjamin… WGTT work over Heffernan with a side slam/leg drop combo, and a
hangman’s leapfrog… but FabKang #2 Roy Heffernan still kicks out… finally WGTT attempt a double suplex on Heffernan, but FabKang #1 Al Costello
enters to push his partners feet back to the mat and then clobber WGTT with a double clothesline! Fans pop and the ref forces Costello back on the
apron… Shelton Benjamin with a big kick to FabKang #2 Heffernan in the corner, but FabKang #1 trips up Shelton Benjamin from the outside and low
blows him into the steel ring post! Fans pop for that move too, but they always boo “Wild” Red Berry - so it makes for a wild dichotomy… In the ring
FabKang #2 Heffernan mounts Shelton Benjamin for some ground-n-pound, before hitting a huge clothesline and making the hot tag to FabKang #1 Costello…
FabKang #1 starts choking Shelton Benjamin and breaks it up after three… but it gets another decent reaction from the crowd so he does it again…
elbow off the ropes… on another rebound off the ropes, both Benjamin & Costello go down with a double-clothesline… Benjamin finally tags Haas - but
“Wild” Red Berry uses impeccable timing to distract the referee, and the official turns around to forbid the tag! He didn’t actually *see* Haas get
the tag and forces him out of the ring… another big pop for that classic heel-ish tactic as the FabKangs double-team Shelton Benjamin into oblivion…
two clotheslines, a high back body drop, boot to the face - and finally a big elevated Full Nelson bomb… but Haas still makes it back into the ring
in time to break up the pin fall on his partner… we‘re back to FabKang #1 Al Costello versus Shelton Benjamin…
Costello continues the punishment on Benjamin but can’t keep him down… eventually the new-age athleticism, speed & size of Shelton Benjamin catches
up with the FabKang classic and Haas gets the tag-in… he takes over on FabKang #1 with good old fashioned wrestling takedowns and ground-n-pound…
Cover and FabKang 1 kicks out after two… Haas puts FabKang #1 Al Costello up on his shoulders, LOD-style - as Shelton Benjamin scales the top rope on
the opposite side of the ring… but “Wild” Red Berry jumps up to distract Shelton with his cane - only to get kicked off the apron in return… but the
priceless distraction allows FabKang #2 Roy Heffernan to snatch Shelton right off the top rope with a huge overhead suplex! FabKang #1 Al Costello
slips off Haas’ shoulders and collapses his spine with a crushing German suplex! The match is starting to break down now, with the ref losing
control! Shelton Benjamin ducks a clothesline from Heffernan and answers with a vicious backcracker… Charlie Haas & Costello get tangled up and
tumble over the top rope… Shelton with a dropkick, spin kick and top rope clothesline to finish off Heffernan… 1!.. 2!.. KICKOUT! Crowd pops at
the FabKangs resilience… now - the “Intellectual Savior of the Masses” DAMIEN SANDOW makes a ringside appearance to support his manager Wild Red
Berry (still recuperating from Shelton’s kick to the head)… Sandow has a look of disgust and disdain for WGTT, and sneers condescendingly at them as
he helps his manager back to his feet… back in the ring WGTT are wary of Sandow, and that insecurity seemingly plays in their minds as they bumble a
finishing sequence of moves that allows FabKang #2 Roy Heffernan to escape danger - Damien Sandow to jump up and argue with the ref over their
mistreatment - and FabKang #1 Al Costello to SPIT FOSTERS BEER in Charlie Haas’ eye! The blinded Haas turns around and stumbles right into a modified
FabKangs-version of the 3D!!
Winners: FABULOUS KANGAROOS
Post match - as Berry and his camp of mental giants celebrate in the ring - the (NEW again) and reigning XPW Remixed Tag Team champion MOTOR CITY
MACHINE GUNS show up on the entrance ramp to stare them down and flaunt their championship belts... next week the state of XPW Remixed's tag
team division gets permenantly defined, and the chaos and upheavel of the past few weeks gets put to rest... On XPW TV Episode #50 the pecking order
will be cemented when MCMG defend their titles against the Fabulous Kangaroos! One match to determine the best team in XPW Remixed, period!!
XPW Online originated as a stab at “B-Show” level… the highest highest highest-level you can achieve as a Territory Warrior… It’s a SECOND weekly
broadcast on top of your weekly A-grade output and monthly supershow obligations… so it’s a lot of work and requires a lot of dedication, which is
why only the greatest, highest-level players can achieve this lofty level… As XPW Remixed grew and expanded I thought I too could attempt that… in
the beginning, XPW Online was an off-shoot of the GDT Inc expansion efforts (that also led to a brief foray onto the East Coast, and an engorged
roster)… it ran every Friday night in conjunction with every new XPW TV Episode on Tuesdays… over time I couldn’t make the 2x/week commitment and
decided upon a formula that best suited my posting schedule - one show a week/alternating between XPW TV and XPW Online… but since that time I’ve
realized I’m only shooting myself in the foot, “points wise”… Because of instead of dropping a weekly show that’s worth maximum points (7), I’m
alternating it with a “secondary show” worth only 5... So I’m losing 4 points a month just for writing “Online” instead of “TV”, and here we are!…
I’m still keeping my 1x/week posting schedule, expect it will be “XPW TV” every week instead of only bi-weekly! So long XPW Online, I’ll post a
Greatest Hits package on the OnDemand board!!
Great Gama is another in a long line of MSD-trademark Golden Age Icons… from the carnival shooter and strongman days, when the game had started
evolving past local yokel challenges into these guys challenging each OTHER - Great Gama reigned as one of the best in the WORLD… he retired
undefeated only to be awoken from his slumber by the evil machinations of JINDER MAHAL (2014) - the greatest Punjabi wrestler of all time… at first
Gama found himself tethered to Mahal, but broke his strict obedience in the face of Jinder Mahal’s true evil spirit… but the sins of his old
alignment still feast upon him when his old dark master Mahal beat him - right HERE on XPW ONLINE! (see XPW Online #16) - and ENDED his hallowed
undefeated streak! But the “loss” only lit a new age fire in Gama and he set about reaffirming his GREATNESS by vowing to exterminate Jinder Mahal
from fantasy wrestling for good! So the mad pursuit began - through the buildings, backstage areas, city to city and coast to coast… Gama chased
Mahal until finally goading him into a match at “Give Me Liberty or Death” (right here on the XPW Online (prelims) segment!!) But the world would
quickly learn Jinder Mahal would never have accepted that challenge if he didn’t already have an ace in the hole - the unchained, madman eccentric
SABU! Recruited to join the fold of Mahal’s dark political cell he was unleashed upon Great Gama in a surprise attack (see “Give Me Liberty or
Death”) resulting in another victory for Jinder Mahal… but that crooked victory comes at an amazing price tonight - when Great Gama runs right
through Sabu like a hot knife through butter… Sabu goes like a suicidal bump machine, and really puts over Great Gama’s strength displays… Jinder
Mahal has some of the most convincing facial expressions and he tells the story of his entire frustration, anger (and fear?) of Gama… huge charging
SPEAR through a table leaning against the turnbuckles gets Gama his victory - and small measure of retribution… but when he dare charge Mahal after
the match, the set-up leads to a brutal 2-on-1 assault that climaxes with Sabu SAVAGING Great Gama’s face and forehead with a metal spike! An
absolute gorefest as huge crimson puddles quickly form beneath Gama’s ravaged head! Jinder Mahal locks Great Gama in his camel clutch for an obscene
amount of time (forcing the blood to flow down Gama’s face and into Mahal’s cupped hands like a fountain)… before ordering Sabu to drive him through a
table with a steel chair assisted top rope face buster… a blood-stained Mahal and Sabu rejoice post match, and the deadly scene is a reminder of the
kind of unedited, Xtreme action you can only witness Online…
Get with the muthaphuckking MOVEMENT! The RASHAD CAMERON movement! The former “Sabian” cuts a backstage promo putting over his new style,
attitude and “anti-government name” before introducing his wolf pack of goons behind him - Michael Tarver, JTG & Shad Gaspard… each of them are as
menacing as any Black gangbanger can be, and the punch line comes when Rashad Cameron’s promo references corny wiggers and white boy poseurs and his
crew start flashing PG-13 (JC Ice Baby & Wolfie D’s) gear, kicks and medallions - alluding to some kind of incident where they apparently jumped the
white boys backstage and jacked them for their shit...
MICHAEL TARVER & CRYME TYME 2.0
RUCKUS & BIZARRE RYDE
Rashad Cameron leads his movement to the ring - his profane declaration of independence ringing the entire time as he rants on the mic the entire
time… in-ring he’s finally rebutted by former tag team partner RUCKUS - who shows up on the entrance ramp to answer him on the mic… he clowns
Cameron a little and puffs on his Black-n-Mild… when the angry, Napoleon-complex Rashad Cameron checks Ruckus and his lack of back-up… Ruckus stands
back to introduce his partners for the night… BIZARRE RYDE!
The new, masked tag team of daredevil high-flyers! Ruckus starts with JTG in the ring and out dazzles, outmuscles and outquicks the Brooklyn gangsta…
but falls victim to a Big Shad running boot… now Tarver & Gaspard take turns beating on Ruckus, while commentators Solie & Striker touch on the
identities of the masked Bizarre Ryde (everybody knows Kendrick & London recently signed with XPW Remixed and have been waiting to debut)… finally
Ruckus fights back - takes out Tarver & JTG - and crawls over for the hot tag… only to have BOTH Bizarre Ryde members simultaneously drop off the
ring apron and avoid his hand! What the…!?!? Ruckus is incredulous! The fans start booing! Rashad Cameron and crew look just as confused as the
commentators sound… Bizarre Ryde simply shake their heads no at Ruckus, before unmasking to reveal…
They laugh, smile and guffaw - apparently happy with the little “swerve” they just pulled… Cameron and crew take immediate advantage and jump on the
outnumbered Ruckus… Big boot from Shad - KO punch from Tarver - sleeping neck breaker from JTG on Ruckus ends the fight 1 2 3... Post match the
former “Sabian”, Rashad Cameron gets to unleash a BLKJeez double-foot stomp off the top rope to Ruckus head (as his crew held a steel chair over his
face) - effectively putting a “bullet” in his former partner… Rashad Cameron & his movement are left to soak up the boos and taunt the audience while
the commentators discuss them and the newly-returned Generation Me with great disgust…
More information from within the file folder first revealed by Lou Thesz on XPW TV Episode #49... Backstage correspondent MSD reviews the
materials, evidence and summaries contained within…
Name: DANNY DAVIS
New England native (hey I’ve heard stories he lived right up the street in Broken City) Danny Davis comes plucked to us from the WWE universe circa
1987... He’s a credible, big-name official capable of handling big time main event names, matches & crowds… so on the surface, this signing was a
coup for Gold Dust Trio Inc (the parent company of XPW Remixed)… but what we are now starting to learn, Danny Davis was only able to be signed
because of a suspension he’s facing in the big leagues… apparently the stink of injustice, criminal conspiracy and biased officiating hangs heavy
over his career - as numerous incidents have spawned reports… Davis has been accused of bribery by no less a source than Gorilla Monsoon, and
officiated many screwy finishes (including a Paul Orndorff/Hul Hogan steel cage match and a tag team title change between the Hart Foundation &
British Bulldogs… it was that gregarious decision that led to the mists of XPW Remixed swallowing him and depositing him here…
In XPW Remixed canon this once-anonymous face has been pointed out in a line-up, and now previously shady incidents have a new light shone upon them…
Davis refereed the controversial “submission” victory of Jinder Mahal that ENDED Great Gama’s hallowed undefeated streak amongst other things… and
now the “tap-out” of former XPW World champion Lou Thesz… another slow motion recap of the finish @ “GMLoD” shows Thesz trapped in Alberto Del Rio’s
arm bar and struggling for better leverage, including a pat of his hand upon Del Rio’s kneepad to get a better grip… it was that slight hand motion
that caused referee Danny Davis to end the match and declare a “Tap Out Submission”… MSD is continuing to look into these ties and will reveal the
information as it becomes released…

** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Honky Tonk Man & Heath Slater are in the office of XPW President Ed “Strangler” Lewis trying to start a “bidding war”… Heath Slater holds (what he
claims to be) an exclusive, 6-figure PACKAGE DEAL contract with the AWA for him and HTM to jump ship! Slater goes into a classic oversell of his &
HTM’s contributions and value all designed to scare Ed Lewis into offering them more money… but it doesn’t work… in a humorous bit, Ed Lewis
repeatedly asks to see the paperwork so he can authorize their release - but Slater keeps balking and refuting it until you realize the papers he’s
got are just blanks - and NOT an AWA contract as stated… their ploy to squeeze more money and air time out of XPW Remixed fails and they’re sent on
their way… they look to object one more time, until TAZ strides into the office! They take one look at his stone cold-serious face and DISAPPEAR!
That leaves Taz alone in the office to exchange some harsh words with the XPW Remixed president… Taz choked out Dean Ambrose! Choked out Snuff!
Choked out TNA champion Christian! Choked out Zandig! Choked out Messiah! And if Taz doesn’t start getting some respect he’ll choke out the
Strangler too! But Ed Lewis tries to placate him, and encourages Taz to play the game… but Taz does things HIS way and storms out of Ed Lewis’
office after a tense stand-off and stare down…
XPW DECLARES SUMMER OF WAR ("Bitches ain't shit but hoes & tricks")
Gunner & Jessica Darlin get their sleazy, strip-club entrance… Gunner gleefully treats Darlin like shit and the bitch likes it… "show your tits!"
chant from the crowd... a fans sign in the crowd says "XPW REMIXED: GLORY(hole) BY HONOR"... Quick power promo from Phil “Gunner” Shatter putting
them over, before answered by none other than ANNIE SOCIAL! The diminutive sparkplug has something to prove and a challenge to make - but she doesn’t
want that slutty non-wrestler Jessic Darlin… Annie Social wants a piece of Gunner’s sexist, disrespectful ass! Of course Gunner laughs it off - but
things turn scary when he suddenly snaps and GRABS Annie Social by her hair! All the while Jessica Darlin is taunting her and egging her man on…
Gunner takes Social’s head and THRUSTS it between his legs in piledriver position! The same deadly move that took his former partner Austin Idol OUT
of XPW Remixed for good! But at the last second - a platinum blond savior arrives… SABLE 1998! Familiar with the mistreatment of women at the hands
of wrestling males (see her *recent* storyline friction with husband “Marvelous” Marc Mero) Sable shares Annie Social’s outrage with Gunner & Darlin’s
sexist (and borderline pornographic) antics! And she shows up out of the blue to even the odds! SURPRISE LOW BLOW to Gunner! Roundhouse kick to the
HEAD of Jessica Darlin, knocking that bitch on her oft-stuffed bum! Now hindered by the debilitating effects of the lowblow, Gunner is no match for
the combined might of Annie Social & Sable! GIRL POWER! Double DDT ejects Gunner from the ring permanently! Big cheers! Sable & Social keep it
tuff-girl, but sexy glamorous at the same time… meanwhile an incredulous (and incredibly PISSED OFF) Gunner and Darlin drag their sorry carcasses
back up the entrance ramp to lick their wounds… probably literally…
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW **
MSD is with the "Cali Crippler" Ad Santel, and the cocky German shooter has some choice words for the upper echelon talent in XPW Remixed...
after an XPW Remixed career spent building up his Cali Cripplers training camp, it's time for Ad Santel to get a title shot... he's
beaten all comers... suddenly (and brazenly) - an outsider interupts his interview time to stare him down... it's MILDRED BURKE! The
simmering intensity between the two is palpable, as Ad Santel is aghast by the blatant disrespect showed to him by a WOMAN! Burke cuts a
Depression-era, tuff-talk promo on Santel and references her "submission" over him at "Scene of the Crime"... she claims Santel has been ducking
her - and caught out there under the bright lights and glare of the TV camera, Ad Santel has no choice but to accept or lose face!! It's gonna
be on! On XPW TV Episode #50, Ad Santel finally accepts Mildred Burke's challenge for a one-on-one match!
Former Olympia training camp partners Alexxis Nevaeh & Tommaso Ciampa in conversation… Alexxis has finally cornered him into a conversation and she
is distraught and despondent over his choice to abandon the camp… Ciampa doesn’t really give much a reason, or a response - but when Alexxis begs him
to reconsider (with the whole “we’re like family” talk) he may silently agree… before leaving the scene and Alexxis wondering what he’s
** CUT TO RING **
HAKUSHI KURO versus JUN KASAI
Recap of the Onita/Muldoon mini-feud, which each of them angling for the position of “Commissioner”… Muldoon avenged his honor (and win/loss record)
by defeating former pupil Hakushi Kuro @ “GMLoD” - thus denying Atsushi Onita the Commissioner position of power… This is the part of the show that
fulfills our “pro wrestling as male soap opera” drama quotient… but because this is XPW Remixed it’s all dark and ominous, like a growing horror
film… Segment starts in the back with a WICKED vignette in which Onita practically tortures his charges Hakushi & Jun Kasai while verbally destroying
them for failing to uphold Black Army honor (Rob Black’s team lost @ “GMLoD”)… this is Full Metal Jacket/Homeland-type psychological and physical
torture that manifests itself with an in-ring promo from Onita, surrounded by his brainwashed, savage followers Hakushi Kuro & Jun Kasai… to continue
furthering the punishment he gleefully engages them in combat (per Commissioner Muldoon’s decree on XPW TV Episode #49) like one might do abused
pitbulls in a backyard dog fight… Onita encourages each to obscene degrees and Hakushi Kuro finally finishes Kasai by sending him backwards through a
burning table barbed wire death trap (which had originally been set ablaze by Onita in the first place)… “XPW! XPW!” chants and Hakushi Kuro really
gets put over as a pulverizing, Action film-like ninjitsu warrior…
Winner: HAKUSHI KURO
Onita finally turns his bile towards his original target - Commissioner Muldoon… Onita unleashes a loud, belligerent diss promo on Muldoon -
calling him and his camp all kinds of horrible things - but when he dares call Muldoon a “coward” - none other than a new theme song interrupts
Enter TOMMASO CIAMPA!!
He has apparently emerged to defend the honor of Olympia after all! But it’s hard to tell from his ice-cold, stoic expression… he stands his ground
and stares Onita dead in the eye as the Japanese madman lambastes him to his face… it appears Ciampa may have outdid himself here, as Hakushi & Kasai
begin to circle him in a very tense stand-off situation… until COMMISSIONER WILLIAM MULDOON emerges! This is his first time actually getting to see
Ciampa since his desertion, and Muldoon uses this opportunity to let bygones be bygones in the face of a shared threat… but just when it seems it
will at least be 2-on-3 (odds Muldoon favors as a “fair fight” against 3 Death Match savages)… Tommaso Ciampa (predictably) abandons Muldoon AGAIN!
Onita, Kasai & Hakushi beat down the aging Commissioner while Ciampa just watches on in blank, befuddled inactivity… the beat down continues with
Ciampa just watching on until Alexxis Neveah makes the run in! She uses her body to shield Muldoon’s and cries out to Tommaso “WHAT R U DOING!?!?”
Her efforts seem to have waylaid the bad guys and put the soap opera focus back on Alexis & Ciampa’s brother/sister relationship - when she finally
SLAPS him out of anger and frustration! He silently steams but doesn’t act - in fact, he doesn’t do ANYTHING - even as Hakushi Kuro sneaks into the
ring like a cat behind her - spins her around - and spits blinding BLACK MIST into Alexxis’ face! She shrieks and goes down! Oh the horror! Muldoon
writhes in pain and tries to crawl over to her! Onita cackles madly and leads his troops in a victory lap! Tommaso Ciampa just continues to watching
- blankly… silently… as he slinks back up the entrance ramp… paramedics must tend to grievously injured Alexxis Nevaeh…
"XPW DECLARES SUMMER of WAR" ("Just Clownin Around")
What is this? Oh my, take a look! It’s old XPW Online alumni Doink the Clown!(it‘s really not Matt Bourne so relax your stinking sue-happy
fingertips) Oh what a pleasant surprise on our SERIES FINALE! Backstage correspondent MSD awaits in the ring for a few words with the surprise
guest, and waits patiently as the face-painted Doink the Clown classic hands out balloons and small toys to ringside children… in the ring, Doink
procures a very special STING action figure as a small rib on WWF but can’t get a single word out before we are interrupted by a theme song…
It’s the NEW XPW Boston champion, and FRANCHISE of fantasy wrestling…
SHANE DOUGLAS (w/ Lizzy Borden)!!
This is primetime Franchise with a chip on his shoulder - porn bitch dimepiece on his arm - and championship belt around his waist… and he’s got A
LOT to say… another classic “shoot-style” rant from Shane Douglas where he completely dismisses this entire childish charade and instead demands this
air time go to him instead… as far as he’s concerned, he proved he’s legit at “Give Me Liberty or Death” - the “Boston” title can be called the
“Pittsburgh championship” for all he cares - Doink the Clown is a JOKE like the WWF (and Lizzy Borden has some harsh, choice words for that
“Jacked-up, clit-dick cum dumpster CHYNA” as well)… and Shane Douglas is the muthaphuckkin FRANCHISE of fantasy wrestling! And he proves that once
again tonight with a scary display of bully intensity when he jumps and quickly dismantles Doink the Clown (while MSD flees)… Pittsburgh Plunge
breaks the clowns neck and Douglas finishes by sarcastically popping the head OFF the WWF-brand Sting action figure in the ring… But no sooner has he
done that, we get our 2nd interruption of the segment…
Miz makes fun of Douglas for picking on an action figure - makes fun of Lizzy Borden for being a trash bag gutter-feeding hoe bag - and winds up using
his big mouth to cash a championship check tonight… Shane Douglas (in front of the voracious XPW Remixed live audience) has his manhood questioned
and must answer the call… solid match between the two as the announcers cover their history within XPW Remixed canon (long feud - climaxed with Shane
Douglas beating Team Miz at “Scene of the Crime” - still simmering) and the two athletes put over the importance of this title belt (and it‘s lineage
going all the way back to Danno O‘Mahoney 1935 and his “World title“ status)… Miz proves he’s on the level and earns a few very close near-falls, but
in the end - ringside manipulations from Lizzy Borden ensure her man the victory and Douglas catches Miz with a crushing Pittsburgh Plunge for the
Winner (and STILL XPW Boston champion): SHANE DOUGLAS
Post match Shane Douglas & Lizzy Borden want to go for the beat down on Miz further, when they are interrupted and antagonized by a SECOND Doink
the Clown appearing the scene… much taller and skinnier this one, with a curiously-large blown out green afro on his head… the new Doink unleashes a
surprise WHIPPED CREAM attack on Lizzy Borden’s face - leaving her looking like a bukkake victim! Dazzling glitter strike to Shane’s eyes and the 2nd
Doink takes over with a familiar, juke-n-jiving high-flying offense! Splits! Waves! Jive-Soul Bro! Shane Douglas is OUTTA HERE and the 2nd Doink
unmasks to reveal none other than…
With the crowd surging behind him (their endorsement speaking levels) - and the support of Commissioner William Muldoon - we are granted our first PPV
title defense! Shane Douglas will defend his XPW Boston championship against HUMAN TORNADO at “Damage Inc 2!!” Crowd goes berserk! Douglas & Borden
are irate over the lack of respect! Muldoon signs out, and Human Tornado dances and preens for the crowd to end this segment!
Ill breakdown in traditional, XPW Original style… music-video styled clip job that highlights the best 3-4 minutes of this match… Promo from Wendi
Richter to start where she angrily calls out Natalya Neidhart for COLLECTING A BOUNTY on her @ “GMLoD” - attacking Richter in the locker room - and
preventing Richter from claiming her title shot against Awesome Kong… cut to Nattie answering on the mic and admitting she collected the bounty set
by Lizzy Borden and is guaranteed a woman’s title shot herself - if she can beat Wendi Richter TONIGHT! Cut to action with highlights interspersed
over the “Bumpin Bumpin” beat by Kreayshawn… hard-hitting, exciting match that finds Nattie overcoming a missile-dropkick attempt from Richter by
catching the former XPW Remixed Woman champions legs and LOCKING IN THE SHARPSHOOTER! Wendi tries to fight it and get to the ropes but can’t! No
choice but to TAP or SNAP! Nattie Neidhart smiling, cackling like her father and flaunting her hard-won victory… XPW Remixed is the home for REAL
woman‘s fantasy wrestling… fuck ROH…
RULES: Royal Rumble-style, Xtreme-rulez battle royal in which participants are allowed to wear street-clothes and use weaponry... these are
very violent, dangerous matches - and only the sickest sunovabitches in the Territory Wars dare sign up...
ROLL CALL of PARTICIPANTS:
Pogo the Clown
** and more!! **
** SLAUGHTAHOUSE STAMPEDE QUALIFYING MATCH **
ORDER of ELIMINATION:
1) Officer Cabana (used as filler, eliminated quickly - his heel authority figure is permanently written out of XPW Remixed storylines off
camera when he is arrested in front of the live audience for bribery and corruption, and led away in handcuffs hooting and hollering...)
2) Unnamed Jobber(a warm body used to take some Xtreme bumps and bleed alot...)
3) Ricky Reyes("accidentally" eliminated by tag team partner Rocky Romero)
4) Drake Younger(Violent Kendo stick assault from the "New Horror" Sami Callihan)
5) Jimmy Uso(Throws himself over the top rope after the last entrant makes his way to the ring weilding a muthaphuckkin WEED WHACKER!!)
6) Jey Uso(same as his brother - they THOUGHT they were tuff guys until the masked mystery man with the weed whacker enters - then the
Uso's eliminate themselves and get the hell outta town!)
7) Rocky Romero(Eliminated by masked mystery man and last entrant)
8) Tony Altomare(Italian "mob boss" spent entire match ducking everybody and clinging to the bottom ropes, until the ratty-haired,
scarred-up masked mystery man eliminates him with a steel chair smash to the skull...)
9) Sami Callihan(Already entered into the Slaughtahouse Stampede, per his CZWO affiliation - Callihan felt pressured to take this match
regardless, especially after his "ghost" talk and mystery backstage assault (or so he claims - see XPW TV Episode #49) prevented him from coming to
the aid of his stablemate Messiah... but to Callihan's horror tonight, the last entrant is the masked "GHOST" that attacked him last week!
And he's got a muthaphuckkin weedwhacker! After clearing the ring in a blaze of glory - the mystery man unmasked to reveal a face from Sami
Callihan's XPW Remixed past...)
10) ** WINNER: Thumbtack Jack!! **
The last entrant, he came to the ring wearing his all-white "ghost" mask and carrying a weedwacker... he went on a violent elimination frenzy
before zeroing in on his former "mentor" and violent abuser Sami Callihan - revenge for the sacrifice Thumbtack Jack became in the wake of
CZWO's creation... Thumbtack Jack is BACK! And he's ready for the Slaughtahouse Stampede!!
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE VIGNETTE **
Another comedic interlude between "Real Deal" Damien Steele and Ricardo Rodriguez... Steele is adamant about becoming XPW Remixed champion
Alberto Del Rio's personal assistant, but hilariously fails in this bi-lingual exchange with Ricardo - and Steele winds up accidentally
admitting he's a "moron who enjoys cock" in Spanish (complete with humorous subtitles provided by XPW Remixed producers)... chalk up another
minor victory for Del Rio's personal ring announcer...
** Backstage interview with Lou Thesz - touches on ref controversy at "GMLoD" but isn't making excuses... he will regain his championship on
XPW TV Episode #50 when he rematches with Alberto Del Rio... **
** Sheamus promo hyping his match with "Nature Boy" Buddy Rogers on XPW TV Episode #50 - if Sheamus wins he will earn a rematch against Matt Morgan,
who beat him via crooked means at "GMLoD"... **
** Retort from Rogers & Morgan who remind you of Buddy Rogers run of greatness through XPW Remixed and how Matt Morgan is the future of Fantasy
Wrestling... Sheamus will be left in the past... **
** Scary, dark, boiler-room promo from Reigning KotDM champion ZANDIG - who puts over the CZWO mission to destroy XPW Remixed from within... he will
defend his title for the first time on XPW TV Episode #50 against a mystery opponent... **
** Management skit in which Ed Lewis & Toots Mondt enter Rob Black's messy office - kick Jack Pfefer out of the room - and basically pleasently
strong-arm Rob Black into signing over Alberto Del Rio's exclusive contract rights... they get their long-awaited champion NOT named Lou Thesz
- and Rob Black has more fodder for his paranoid conspiracy theory that "everbody is out to get him"... **
Recap of the Cena/Joe feud that raged over the XPW Boston championship - before segueing to this match with championship stipulations… in arena,
current XPW Remixed World champion ALBERTO DEL RIO enters first to join Solie & Striker at the commentary table… Samoa Joe enters next… Cena last…
Gordon Solie notes that despite the accusations and alleged “proof” of wrongdoing, XPW official DANNY DAVIS has still be assigned to ref this match…
we start off with Cena taking down Samoa Joe with a quick arm drag off a lock-up, showing off his wrestling skills… but Samoa Joe is unimpressed and
answers with a takedown of his own… Joe & Cena have several exchanges where they counter wrestle, scramble and reverse each other… Cena goes for an
FUAA early, but Joe elbows out and hit’s a sick combination of strikes… Samoa Joe takes over on offense, while Alberto Del Rio admits how dangerous
each man is - but never hesitates to believe he can beat either one of them… Samoa Joe with a shoulder block from the ring apron and then a
springboard forearm and Muay-Thai clinch - driving his knees into Cena‘s face… Samoa Joe goes to work on Cena’s arm, trying to nullify his strength
advantage… a front facelock slows the action down, and gives the crowd a chance to get off their chants (“Joe’s gonna KIIIILLLL YOU…”, “LET’S GO
CENA! / CENA SUCKS!”).. Cena finally fights back with some big right hands - shoulder blocks - spinning sit-out suplex - and finally (to mixed
cheers) the 5-Knuckle shuffle… but Joe kicks out at 2 and tries rolling out of the ring… outside the ring a brawl erupts between the both men that
carries over towards the announce table… at one point, Cena takes a running CHARGE at Joe - only to have Samoa Joe sidestep him and send Cena flying
over the announce table RIGHT INTO Alberto Del Rio! Cena crashes into the champ and both men crumple onto the arena floor…
Back in the ring, Cena eats a vicious Pele kick and side Russian leg sweep from Joe… now Joe is calling for the Kokina clutch rear-naked choke… he
zooms in on Cena and tries catching him in the hold - but John fights back… he actually manages to HOIST Samoa Joe up onto his shoulders into FUAA
position! BAM! Cena hits his finishing move in the middle of the ring… but Joe doesn’t release his grip! He locks his legs around Cena’s body and
tightens the rear naked choke! Both men’s shoulders are down on the mat and the referee counts… 1!.. 2!.. 3!! WHAT!?!? Joe breaks the hold, and
raises his arms aloft triumphantly! There is confusion from the commentators over the decision… fan reaction is notably hostile… finally after a
long pause, SAMOA JOE is announced the winner via pinfall! This brings Boston area promoter (and John Cena & the MCMG’s backstage manager) PAUL
BOWSER to ringside where he vehemently protests the decision… He actually gets XPW Commissioner William Muldoon to REVERSE THE DECISION! It was
JOE’S shoulders on the mat for the referee’s count, therefore the true victor is JOHN CENA! Big pop for that! But now Samoa Joe is enraged! XPW
Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt is making his way to ringside to join the argument… but it’s all for naught! Because in the midst of the chaos and
confusion - and irate Alberto Del Rio storms the ring using his championship belt as a weapon! BAM! Belt shot to the back of Joe’s skull, knocking
him out! BAM! Belt shot to Cena’s forehead, busting him open and leaving him lying! Del Rio is an island upon himself, and NOBODY deserves to be
his challenger! Show fades to black with Alberto Del Rio soaking in the boos and flaunting his precious XPW Remixed World Championship… he defends
against Lou Thesz next week on XPW TV Episode #50!!

XPW TV Episode #50 ("Anniversary Special")
** SHOW INTRO **
Godfather movie themed intro, featuring a genial, jolly Ed “Strangler” Lewis (the don) giving a cheerful toast to longevity, solidarity and the
much anticipated XPW TV Episode #50! This time last year XPW Remixed was near collapse and split into two… but now the ship sails firmly with all
the sailors rowing in the same direction… SALUT! Cameras pan to Joseph “Toots” Mondt joyously toasting along, with a look of smug “know it all”
confidence – almost condescending towards the 3rd man at the end of the table, Robert Black… who appears slightly disheveled, tweaked out and
paranoid… the state of “unity” within in XPW Remixed… meanwhile the cameras continue to pull out revealing an old school, “Magic City” on Starz,
NWA-styled conference with all the top promoters in fantasy wrestling… including Paul Bowser, manager of John Cena & the MCMG… and they are seated
around conference tables chatting incessantly and incestuously (plotting? Scheming? Planning?) even while the Dom Perignon is still bubbly from the
** CUT TO VIDEO INTRO **
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
Sick video recap that covers the birth of XPW Remixed - from Bruno Sammartino inaugural champion… to XPW WORLD champion Lou Thesz… all the way up
to the present and future with Alberto Del Rio (2011) flaunting his championship hardware like Tony Montana at the end of Scarface (“say hello to my
little friend!”)… over the span of the last 50 episodes, you - the Territory Wars (lone) fan - have witnessed the evolution of a fantasy wrestling
phenomenon… the most vile, vulgar, balls-to-the-wall, in-your-face, str8t hood org in Territory Wars history… tonight - we tip the champagne flutes
towards the past - pour out a little liquor for those XPW Remixed alumni no longer with us - and toast to the future… this is XPW Remixed… and this
Alberto Del Rio defends the XPW World championship against former champ LOU THESZ! The KotDM title is up for grabs against a mystery contender…
Sheamus 2012 takes on “Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers 1963 in another epic timeline clash (with a match against Matt Morgan waiting in the wings if Sheamus
can be victorious)… a woman’s championship match… and the long-awaited championship rematch pitting XPW Remixed tag team champs MOTOR CITY MACHINE
GUNS against their archival arch-rivals THE FABULOUS KANGAROOS! All this and more as we continue down the road towards “DAMAGE INC 2”!! Stay tuned!!
Show opens with the camouflage pants and ski-mask wearing, Timberland stomping, crowbar-wielding invading goon squad known as the CZWO! The leader of
the pack – ZANDIG – cuts a “death b4 dishonor” speech that is greeted with massive BOOS from the West Coast audience who see them as plagiarizing,
entitled, East Coast fucks… most of the boos are reserved for The MESSIAH – a native son who turned tail and fled to the East Coast… Zandig is
anwered on the mic by Black Army Japanese delegate and Hardcore Icon ATSUSHI ONITA!
He shouts Zandig down… threatens to unleash the deadly SNUFF upon him (as the commentators remind you of his victory over Sycho Sid that made that
no-talent stiff want to flee to safer ground - aka “WWF”)… before swerving everybody and demanding security SEIZE THE INVADERS! A dozen or so XPW
Remixed security officers collapse upon the ring and try to take the CZWO by force - but all it does is give the CZWO an opportunity to run through
them all, black-ninja style… but eventually the ring is cleared leaving only Zandig and Snuff going face to face… only to have DEAN AMBROSE appear
out of nowhere to blindside Zandig with a bundle of fluorescent light tubes! Onita finally calls for the bell and the REAL challenger is now
apparent - Dean Ambrose!
He uses the elements of chaos and surprise around him to attack the distracted Zandig and absolutely brutalize him… this is the trademark XPW Remixed
"all hell breaks loose" segment of the night, with Slaughtahouse Stampede participants like NEW JACK, Danny Havoc and even Original Sheik all
getting involved... in the end, Zandig no-sells a barbed-wire bat shot to hulk up - intimidate Ambrose - before impaling him through a barbed wire
table with a double-fisted chokeslam bomb! Dean Ambrose rolls out of the ring in pain, apparently forfeiting the match...
Winner (by "count-out") and STILL KotDM champion: ZANDIG
Post match, Zandig barely has a minute to celebrate his victory when Rob Black appears on the entrance ramp to angrily confront his bi-coastal
rival and bubble over with rage... he says he has a very special opponent for Zandig at "DI2"... and unleashes upon him the destructive force of
KILO! The white-haired, coked-out, immune-2-pain, 400 lb+ BEAST sneak attacks Zandig and CRUSES him with a sit-out piledriver onto a steel chair!
KILO leaves the CZWO capo lying in the ring! A small measure of retribution for Rob Black and his Army!
Back from commercial and the bad guys from the previous match are backstage arguing vehemently amongst themselves - Dean Ambrose is pissed and in
pain, exclaiming “that’s not what kind of title shot I meant”! Meanwhile “Prince of Darkness” Kevin Sullivan (1982) is shouting him down with a
chowdah thick Boston accent, talking about Dean’s failures to uphold the Black Army - when finally head honcho ROB BLACK rolls into the scene… he
claims to have thrown them a lifeline once more, but they’re making him look like a complete fool with their ineptitude… The Black Army gets one more
chance for redemption in the “Slaughtahouse Stampede” match @ “DI2” - and now Black had to hire an outside party (Kilo) to handle this KotDM
championship… Rob Black is also subtly hyping himself up for a meeting he plans to have tonight with his business partners Lewis & Mondt - to air his
recent grievances… Black walks away, talking to himself in vague and sinister tones - while the rest of the Black Army just starts bickering and
fighting with each other again…
Segment starts with a brief backstage sketch… Commissioner Muldoon (cheers) is conversing with XPW Remixed Television champion RVD (even bigger
cheers)… Commissioner Muldoon takes his duty very seriously and has instituted a series of rankings (based on wins/losses etc..) to determine RVD’s
championship field… RVD 4:20 is all “whatever man”, and while his pot themed innuendo doesn’t fly over Muldoon’s head – the straight-laced
Commissioner none the less lets it slide… when they are approached by Harvard Law Graduate David Otunga and his sexy legal secretary GG… in a brief
confrontation rife with lawyer jargon and legalese, Muldoon STILL declines Otunga’s demand for ANOTHER TV title match for Focus and is even about to
levy another FINE upon them for their actions (see XPW TV Episode #49) – when RVD chimes in… now his red-eyes are fueled by anger and he dismisses
Focus as cheap trash and challenges Gorgeous George to meet him in the back alley after the show if he wants to fight dirty…
Match itself is designed to get over the new “MOVEMENT” led by International X-Division superstar RASHAD CAMERON… his band of Ghetto-fabulous rock
star heavyweights runs deep… the rejuvenated Cryme Tyme 2.0 and Michael Tarver… RVD gets his offense over, going one-on-one primarily with Cameron
(harkening back to their TV title match last Episode)… Ruckus and RVD display amazing 4:20 chemistry, and the “Bruce Lee of OOOWEE” gets a chance to
bust out his best moves as well – but plays face-in-peril for the middle portion of the match… Reyes & Romero work mechanically, yet separately – and
Romero even appears to freeze Reyes out some of the plays (like Rondo did Ray Allen on the Boston Celtics 2012)… in the end, Ruckus & JTG get really
into it and wind up brawling all the way through the crowd and off screen somewhere...
FOCUS magnate David Otunga shows up at ringside (with his ditzy "legal assistant" GG) - flashing his lawyer credentials and GDT Inc affiliation as a
license to be there - but of course pricelessly distracting RVD - so much so, RVD forsakes a sure-fire 5-Star Frog Splash aimed at Michael Tarver - to
instead fly OFF the top rope OVER GG's head ONTO David Otunga with a flying body press! BIG POP and a mixture of "HOLY S**!" and "RVD"
chants that eventually meld into one unified cry of "XPW! XPW!"... RVD brawls with Otunga at ringside... meanwhile in the ring, Rashad Cameron
and Big Shad Gaspard double team Ricky Reyes until he fights back with stiff martial kicks and strikes (reminding you of a poor mans Low-Ki + about 10
pounds of muscle)... but when he reaches for the hot tag from his partner Rocky Romero - he's nowhere to be found! Instead, of an exact
reanactment of his original desertion - Romero instead hops off the apron and leaves Reyes to his doom, wiping his hands of the "Havana Pitbulls"
once and for all... Reyes is left to be victimized by a big running Timberland boot from Shad into a BLK Jeez double footstomp from the top rope by
Rashad Cameron (aka the former "Sabian")...
Winners: THE MUTHAPHUCKKIN MOVEMENT
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Back from commercial and David Otunga is arguing loudly with Commissioner Muldoon over RVD’s unscripted, “unprovoked” attack during the previous
segment… Otunga is demanding restitution… instead he gets a one-on-one match with RVD himself on the next XPW TV Episode! This announcement segues
to further chaos up the hall… all eyes and cameras pan left where we see the tail-end of some kind of locker room ruckus… there - we find Atsushi
Onita has apparently unleashed his ninja assassin HAKUSHI KURO upon an unsuspecting Drake Younger - leaving the young Shooters Club protégé laying
dead in the corridor… Onita also takes credit for the blinding black mist Hakushi spit in Alexxis Nevaeh’s face (see XPW Online #23) and taunts
Commissioner Muldoon - saying attacks like this will continue to happen to the roster until Muldoon RESIGNS HIS POSITION! Onita & Hakushi flee while
Muldoon (and now Dan Severn & Masahiko Kimura) arrive to check on the fallen Drake Younger… will Muldoon succumb to these evil threats of extortion
from the Black Army?? Or will more bodies fall in their wake??
The office of XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt… he dismisses his phone call to take a visitor in person – XPW Remixed WORLD champion Alberto Del
Rio (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez)!! Mondt & Del Rio are on the level, though there is still a sense that neither one of them wants to give up an inch to the
other… because of the results of the #1 Contenders match (see XPW Online #23 – “Series Finale”), it is true, there is no clear victor… but as Mondt
would like to tell Del Rio – he is cut off by the next visitor into the office… it is legendary Boston area promoter PAUL BOWSER, who pleasantly (in
a condescending sort of fashion) greets the “world” champion Del Rio with a firm handshake and smile…
As Mondt was about to say, Bowser completes the sentence, because there was no clear victor – that also means there was no clear loser… therefore he
has lobbied from the State Athletic Commission to institute a TRIPLE THREAT championship match featuring Samoa Joe versus Bowser’s boy John Cena
versus the winner of tonight’s championship bout! Del Rio is flabbergasted and outraged, taking it out on Rodriguez in particular… but there is
little Del Rio can do except grumble ominous threats like the vicious Mexican cartel leader he is… Mondt has to excuse them all from his office
before the tension gets to thick… only to encounter Robert Black in the corridor coming to meet him…
Mondt has a quick one-on-one at Black’s behest, but it’s clear Mondt’s mind is on other issues… but Black is feeling all sensitive and wondering why
they brought him on board only to take away his booking rights to Del Rio and relegate him to Death Match wrestling? Mondt is coldly dismissive –
reminding Black of all his critical failures since coming on board here (namely the War Games match at “Give Me Liberty or Death” that gave the KOTDM
title to the East Coast) and telling him to stay in his place! He closes by challening Black to find something that's going to bring RATINGS!
Not turn fans away! Mondt leaves Black an angry, confused mess – ripe for the picking from a more devious, calculated, controlling mind… Black’s
right hand confidant Jack Pfefer perhaps, who is waiting in the wings overhearing the whole exchange…
Back from commercial break, XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt is in the ring to introduce a very special guest for XPW TV Episode #50... Prodigal
son and former Heavyweight Boxing champion of the world…
He gets a very gracious reception and has a few Santino Marella-like moments of language difficulty that is both affable and lovable… but he is
rudely interrupted by a familiar (highly annoying) theme song that can mean only one thing…
Enter the “One Man Southern Rock Band” and his superstar agent…
HEATH SLATER & HONKY TONK MAN!!
The angry duo continues their pro-AWA / anti-XPW Remixed rants with great fervor, driving the fans into a lather… they even have the audacity to
insult Primo Carnera on his night - until Toots Mondt (pressed in front of the ravenous fan base) is forced to respond - he gives Slater & HTM their
match request - right here TONIGHT - with Primo Carnera as special guest referee! Introducing his opponent for the night…
COLT “BOOM BOOM” CABANA (2012)
HEATH SLATER (w/ Honky Tonk Man) versus COLT CABANA (Special referee Primo Carnera)
w/ special referee
Free of gimmickry & reinvented as an everyman’s champion, Colt Cabana steps right out of the Bridgewater MA Knights of Columbus building in 2012 into
the XPW Remixed arena to great cheers and chants of “COLT! COLT!” He has a great “sportz entertainment” clash with Slater that relies heavily on
audience participation (aided of course by the always explosive HTM at ringside - and gigantic force of law & order Primo Carnera refereeing the
middle)… in the end Cabana catches Slater in his “Billy Goat’s Curse” finisher (reverse Boston Crab) for the tap-out victory! Primo Carnera calls
for the bell himself!
Winner (by submission): COLT CABANA
Post match, Cabana celebrates with the fans at ringside - powdering out of the scene to leave Slater & HTM to have an angry confrontation with
Carnera… HTM sneaks up on Carnera from behind and BREAKS the guitar over his broad back! But other than a slight flinch… Carnera NO-SELLS the
guitar shot and turns around to roar in HTM’s face! (big pop) Honky Tonk Man flees the ring - Heath Slater tries to get one last shot in - only to
have Primo wheel around and BAM! Flatten him with his K.O. punch! The same shot that ended Big Show’s XPW Remixed run in the first Crossover
appearance in Territory Wars history! Primo Carnero KO punches Heath Slater and basks in the adulation of the fans to end the segment…
Nattie Neidhart is a formidable force - stronger than 99% of the female wrestlers on the planet - unfortunately for her, on this night, Awesome Kong
is the 1%… strong-style, competitive woman’s match - the likes of which ROH (eco-version), Shimmer & WWW could only aspire to… she runs through
Neidhart before flattening her with an Implant Buster for the pin…Awesome Kong is on another level…
But there is one person who thinks they can beat Awesome Kong… MILDRED BURKE! The Fabulous Moolah of pro wrestling before Fabulous Moolah existed,
Mildred Burke dominated woman’s wrestling like no other champion before her… unfortunately she is still toiling beneath an iron-clad, bullshit
contract that relegates her strictly to woman-on-MAN competition… and in an act XPW Remixed part-owner Rob Black is convinced will bring ratings -
she is prepared to challenge MALE shooter & legendary hooker AD SANTEL tonight! Burke’s promo in the back with MSD paints a confident picture as she
harkens back to the triangle choke that started this whole feud in the first place (see “Scene of the Crime”)… Burke says she's been training
with an Olympic medalist and world champion for this shot, and MSD comments that this partner was supposed to be here tonight but bullshit Territory
Wars politics and travel arrangements prevented it... none the less, Burke promises to debut her new partner on the next XPW TV... and ultimately,
Burke is just itching to be the one to get in the ring and end Awesome Kong’s run of domination once and for all…
** CUT TO RING **
AD SANTEL versus MILDRED BURKE
Hella controversy over this match, and build… at first Ad Santel completely refused to accept this match, citing old school (vaguely sexist)
“standards & morals”… but most insiders speculated it was pure FEAR out of the *possibility* he could get tapped out and humiliated once again… but
then he flip flopped and started sending out some very aggressive tweets and statements, challenging Burke to know her place (in the kitchen) and
threatening all kinds of bodily harm upon her if they ever met in a real fight (many of these tweets were subsequently deleted after heavy fan
backlash, and Santel even came out at one point to say his Twitter account had been “hacked” and those weren’t his real comments)… finally this match
WAS signed, sealed and delivered - and even THAT came about after controversy (originally - after balking at the Mildred Burke match-up - Santel was
offered Shooters Club member Dan Severn, but refused THAT fight too - on ground of “weight class differences”)… so Santel decided the fight with
Burke was more to his liking after all, and here we are… but after Burke’s big prizefighter entrance (like “Million Dollar Baby” before she got
brain-deaded)… Ad Santel appears to once AGAIN flip-flop! This time on the mic, and in front of a live arena audience! To huge heel heat and boos,
Ad Santel cuts a full-on, 100% sexist promo on Burke - refusing to accept this match and verbally degrading her on the mic… he wants his Cali
Cripplers trainee TAMINA to take this match instead (while Solie & Striker remind us Burke has beat Tamina straight-up before)… Tamina hops up on the
apron to jaw angrily with Mildred Burke… but as soon as the Depression-era Burke turns her back - BAM! Ad Santel blindsides her from the rear (!?!)
FINALLY the bell rings, signifying the “beginning” of this match - and just like that it’s over! Santel locks the diminutive Burke in a vicious Regal
Stretch submission hold, wrenching her with all his manly might! What a lousy, bully cheat! He pulls, tears and rips her until she’s forced to
submit! Ad Santel gets the big boos post match, and ends the charade by directing his girl Tamina to execute a Superfly splash to the prone Burke…
Ad Santel poses and raises his arms aloft in victory like he’s so proud of himself…
Winner (by submission): AD SANTEL
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
MSD catches up with Phil "Gunner" Shatter (2013) and his vixen valet Jessica Darlin backstage... Gunner is laughing over the beating Ad Santel
just gave Burke - and promises to do the same HIMSELF as he challenges Sable & Annie Social to an intergender tag team match against him & Jessica
Darlin! (see XPW Online #23 for the reason why)... Gunner promises to give it to them raw and Jessica Darlin will show them how to take it... evil
snickering and guffaws to end the segment...
Jessica Darlin shows Sable 1998 and Annie Social 2010 exactly where they can stick it...
Continuing the theme of tipping our hat to the past while toasting to the future tonight – comes the return of an exciting, homebrewed theme song that
– when played in XPW Remixed – can mean only one thing…
The XPW Original, and XPW Remixed TV title sensation…
”THE ROCKSTAR” JOEY KAOS!!
He’s back! Greeted by huge, enthusiastic cheers! “WELCOME BACK!” chants… he cuts a sweet promo about going all over the world to find competition
and DEFEATING Impact (2012) champion and WCW (randomone version) champion AUSTIN ARIES straight up! And since that fantasy-wrestling rocking event,
Kaos has found himself politically FROZEN from competition! It turns out the only place to find REAL competition in the Territory Wars is right here
in XPW Remixed! And by Kaos’ calculations, since he BEAT the man… that MAKES him the man… and heretofore (until the so-called “other paper
champions”) can beat him – Kaos is declaring himself the WORLD CHAMPION WRESTLER man! He unsheathes a custom-designed, Rockstar flavored championship
belt that looks like an upgraded version of the classic strap to huge cheers and plays air guitar with it… Kaos can resurrect the old “wears title
belt constantly, even during matches” gimmick – the fans get a hometown, surprise pop, and WCW gets put in it’s bitch-ass place! SALUD!
** CUT **
[color=lightgreen]** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
In the dark corridors of the building somewhere - Samoa Joe and John Cena finally come face to face! Tense stand off between the two, until Samoa
Joe admits a mutual respect and actually *thanks* Cena for the competitive match on XPW Online... even though Joe thinks he won... Cena accepts and
returns that respect, but strongly stands his own ground and refuses to admit defeat... things get really tense between the two... until Joe sticks
out the handshake of mutual respect and says "good luck in the Triple Threat Match @ DI2... "champ"... Cena accepts the handshake and they both
go nose to nose staring each other down... Joe leaves smirking, Cena is left staring hard at him as he goes - with a blank, expressionless face...
Tense backstage altercation between self-imposed “FTW” champion Taz and Commissioner Muldoon… Taz wants more respect - Muldoon wants him to earn more
sanctioned victories, aka “play the game” in Taz’ mind (something he strongly objects to)… when Muldoon dares refute Taz and make the mistake of
turning back to his paperwork, Taz does the unthinkable… he attacks Muldoon from behind and locks in the TAZMISSION choke hold! OMG Taz is choking
William Muldoon OUT! Security and officials flood into the scene and have to literally pry the “Human Suplex Machine” off the Commissioner! He
finally storms out of the office, as white froth foams from Muldoon’s mouth… as Taz exits, cameras catch former Olympia member TOMMASO CIAMPA
standing idly by - watching the whole scene unfold with an odd detachment…
** CUT TO RING**
”You can’t shoot on me with blanks in the chamber…”
XPW Remixed Boston champion SHANE DOUGLAS (w/ Lizzy Borden) takes the ring for another trademark “angry shoot promo”… he targets imposters, poseurs
and perpetrators in *his* sport - guys like Miz & Human Tornado who are nothing but JOKES… Shane makes sure to stay away from dissing organizations
like WWF so as to not receive any kind of positive feedback from the crowd - he is strictly in 100% anti-XPW Remixed heel mode tonight… thankfully
he’s interrupted by Human Tornado himself, who pimp struts in to control the crowd and steal the scene… he has some hilarious R-rated quips for
Douglas and his porn star valet - along with some serious title threats - and a hilarious video trailer that leaves Douglas & Borden dumbfounded…
Douglas disses - Human Tornado dances - Lizzy Borden tries a sneak attack low blow from behind - but once AGAIN Human Tornado proves he has balls of
steel by no-selling that (as Borden holds her arm in pain) - quickly outmaneuvering both Douglas & Borden, causing them to crash into each other and
collapse in the corner - before unleashing his Jive Soul Bro soft shoe routine on them to a big pop! Human Tornado embarrasses and disgraces Shane
Douglas again! He flaunts the XPW Remixed Boston championship belt while the bad guys fume!
Rob Black is completely in a tizzy - driven to the brink of near-insanity; his paranoia preyed upon like a spider catching a fly in it’s web, Rob
Black cuts a wild, borderline nonsensical promo… mad genius, Dr Frankenstein “IT’S ALIVE!” like fervor from Black as he details his newest revelation
- if woman beating, child-molesting and Hepatitis-spreading isn’t enough to garner the popular vote - then FUCK EM! FUCK EM ALL! FUCK ALL OF YOU!
FUCK THE ENTIRE TERRITORY WARS! How’s this for a surefire ratings boost - a THREAT of obscene proportions… Rob Black puts the word out on Live TV
and social media, that if YOU (the Territory Wars viewer) don’t call/text/tweet/skype every person you know and tell them to turn on XPW TV… if the
last quarter hour of XPW TV Episode #50 is NOT the highest rated segment in company history…
Then Rob Black is going to FEED A PUPPY TO A SNAKE ON LIVE TV!!
He’s not fucking playing people!! Tell everybody you know to tune into XPW TV or the fucking puppy gets it!! Meanwhile Jack Pfefer smiles cruelly in
the background, content in his Machiavellian scheme to gaslight (aka "to intentionally drive insane") Robert Black and usurp his position... just
like Jack Pfefer finally eliminated his former partner The Grand Wizard just a few months ago...
World’s Greatest Tag Team Division (“And it’s all about ME”)
Backstage interview with a clearly disgusted MSD who harkens back to GenMe’s recent masquerade return and asks for an explanation… GenME cuts a
cocky, smirking promo about copycats, poseurs and biters (a common theme of the night), clearly alluding to *other* highly-accredited, “high”-flying
tag teams in XPW Remixed… this is the best tag team division in fantasy wrestling today and Nick & Matt aim to prove that world revolves around THEM…
XPW Remixed world tag team championship coming up next!!
The FabKangs (w/ manager Wild Red Berry) continue their tag team tour de-force with their performance tonight… from the elaborate, uber-patriotic and
sarcastic ring entrance (complete with mini-American flags like the Fabulous Rougeaus Bros 1989)… right down to their brutal, methodical (critics
would say “slow paced”) ground-n-pound style… reigning XPW Remixed tag team champions MCMG of course are a blur of energy, action and synchronized
tag team maneuvers… their style dazzles, and in 2010 they are at the pinnacle of their career - winning multiple tag titles and “Best Tag Team of the
Year” PWI honors… this match is a continuation of their recent series, with a bevy of familiar maneuvers suddenly getting countered because of their
experience against each other… on commentary, Solie & Striker try to play little mind to Rob Black's outrageous ratings demand but are clearly
and deeply perturbed by it... in the end, something happens to Chris Sabin on a somersault plancha to the arena floor, and he comes up holding his
knee… there appears to be several audibles pulled within the next few moments, as Wild Red Berry’s interference becomes more pronounced - stablemate
DAMIEN SANDOW shows up to once again argue the referees ignorance - and the crowd starts chanting “WE WANT TABLES” in anticipation of a table spot the
FabKangs had apparently been propping… but instead, they heel-ishly deny the fans wishes and counter a last-ditch Alex Shelley Tornado DDT attempt
with their modified version of a 3D for the pin… 1!.. 2!.. 3! WE HAVE NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! All the while Chris Sabin is being tended to
secretly by ringside physicians and officials…
Winners (and NEW XPW Remixed tag team champions): FABULOUS KANGAROOS
Post match Wild Red Berry gets the mic and breathlessly exclaims “I TOLD U SO! I TOLD U SO!” to the booing audience… the FabKangs all agree that
American wrestling fans are BOORISH & ignorant! Not worthy of such men with style, class and dignity! Damien Sandow agrees, and Wild Red Berry says
they are taking the XPW Remixed tag titles BACK TO AUSTRALIA and will only defend them there ! Because the Fabulous Kangaroos are the greatest tag
team in the world! But this is fantasy wrestling - and the combination of insane emotional involvement, Dark Powers checks, sinkholes of evil and
wild “WE WANT TABLES!” chants meld together to conjure up a literal manifestation of those very words… the “greatest tag team in the world”… heed
the sirens call…
Introducing to XPW Remixed…
DUDLEY BOYZ (2009)!!
FabKangs, Berry & Sandow are flabbergasted and aghast! The fans are ECSTATIC! Dudley Boyz answer the challenge - cut a battle cry promo - and reveal
they've signed on with XPW Remixed to compete for the Tag Team titles @ "DI2"! Berry tries to take the mic for a retort but suddenly
can't stop stuttering and stammering! This leads to a brief physical calamity - the FabKangs and friends get out manuevered by the Dudz - and
with the crowd cheers propelling them on like a rocket ship - the Dudley Boyz unleash a REAL Dudley Death Drop on Damien Sandow RIGHT THROUGH THE
TABLE! They send the FabKangs and Berry scattering, while throwing up their "3's" and leading the fans in chants of "XPW! XPW!" Oh my,
this is revolutionary! The greatest tag team division in fantasy wrestling just got even deeper!!
MSD stands with former XPW Remixed champion Bruno Sammartino in honor of this exemplary 50th Episode celebration… but all they want to talk about,
with great disgust, is Rob Black’s ridiculous “feed a puppy to a snake” stunt… Sammartino in particular is outraged - he is boycotting the rest of
the show - takes some cheap political potshots at Lou Thesz for not quitting his championship match tonight - and releases some information, like
email addresses and phone numbers of animal protection agencies etc that will immediately put a stop to this stunt… MSD concurs, apologizes to
Sammartino and hopes to see him back next time under better circumstances… signing out…
Angry Jinder Mahal promo (with a raving Sabu tethered close behind him)… the ring is filled with various strong man tools and accessories (weight
benches, bar bells, old school stuff etc…) Mahal disparages American’s use of PEDs, segueing into a shared hatred for fantasy wrestling blood rival
GREAT GAMA that’s why Mahal has instigated this challenge tonight… he calls forth Gama who appears to good cheers (wearing bandages around his
forehead – see XPW Online #23)…
Gama wants to destroy Mahal but is prohibited to by a very strict sanction placed on Mahal after the match (like “political immunity”)… Gama is wary,
but when his honor is questioned in front of the ravenous XPW Remixed audience by the glib-tongued Mahal, he has no choice but to accept the
challenge… So Great Gama embarks on a tour-de-force strongman’s performance – smashing any feat Mahal may pose – and popping the crowd louder every
time, while Mahal’s anger and frustration grows more palpable… all the while Sabu is constrained like a rabid pitbull on a thin line… but the sick
twist comes at the end when Mahal refuses to believe the feats are legit and claims the steel spike assault they perpetuated on Gama (see XPW Online
#23) produced enough bloody proof to show otherwise! Mahal antagonistically pokes and prods Gama's chest with his pointed finger, until Gama
SNAPS and grabs Mahal by the lapel of his $1000 suit! But just like Undertaker pausing at the moment he was about to kill Paul Bearer because of a
shared revelation - Jinder Mahal says Gama is NOT the strongest man in the world! THIS man is!...
Yes! It's him! He's here! MARK HENRY 2011! He has the chest-thumping staredown with Gama in the center of the ring (Henry is the
taller of the two) while Mahal taunts him and Sabu darts ravenously about! When Gama's not looking - WHAM with the workout weapon like Rude did
to UW @ RR89! Mahal knocks Gama for a loop and Mark Henry takes over! BOOM through the weight bench! BAM with the Indian club! And finally -
World's Strongest SLAM onto a pile of cinder blocks! Jinder Mahal finally lets Sabu loose to perform a skull-crushing Arabian Face buster from
the top rope (with a steel chair)... all three men pose and soak up the cheers - with Jinder Mahal finally flashing his sick, sadistic grin of
The Greatest Punjabi wrestler of all time, Jinder Mahal (2014), just got even stronger...

** BACKSTAGE VIGNETTE **
Ed “Strangler” Lewis hurries to meet Jack Pfefer passing by in the corridor - he knows they’ve had their political differences in the past, but
tonight’s toast solidifies the future… what on EARTH is Rob Black doing?? The twitter feeds are flaming, FB pages crashing, cellphones, pagers,
faxes and telegrams blowing up! Animal rights activists breathing down their necks! And now Rob Black can’t even be found, or contacted for comment!
Where is he and what’s going on?? But Jack Pfefer says the wheels are already in motion - controversy creates cash - all publicity is good
publicity… blah blah blah, basically everything you’d expect a shady, shiesty, unscrupulous promoter to say… Pfefer says GDT Inc will thank him and
Black tomorrow when this comes in the highest rated segment in TV history… yeah, says Lewis, if the FCC doesn’t cancel us first!
”The New Twin Towers explode!” Highlights of their brief union and explosive break-up (fanned by the flames of jealousy and Wild Red Berry’s devious
managerial mind)… these two giant behemoths clash head on like Godzilla & King Kong, in an unforeseen no-DQ environment… Bigelow is a beast, but
this is Ramos’ specialty match… and especially after Wild Red Berry arrives on the scene to make his managerial decision… the Beast from the East
doesn’t stand a chance… WHACK! Cane broken over Bigelow’s head! He’s lynched with the strap by Ramos! The Indian war chief touches all 4
turnbuckles, ending the match! But that’s not all! Post match, Berry & the newly-arrived Damien Sandow hold Bigelow down while Ramos whips the holy
shit out of him with the strap… then Sandow gets to take his anger and frustration over being tabled (see previous segment with the Dudley Boyz) out
on Bigelow as well - crushing him with his gentleman’s neck breaker… not only is Berry’s camp the highest of class and sophistication - they also
harbor the roughest and toughest mercenary in the Xtreme division!
Winner: BULL RAMOS
Wild Red Berry continues to be Manager of the Year in XPW Remixed...
"NATURE BOY" BUDDY ROGERS (1963)
Sheamus theme song hits and he gets the heroes reception… but he too is in a befouled mood… Sheamus takes the ring for a promo and cuts down Rob
Black for his involvement in such insulting, degrading and disgusting publicity stunts (referencing the “I WILL FEED A PUPPY TO A SNAKE” stunt Black
is preparing to pull at the end of this telecast)… but Sheamus is cut off by the instrumental for “Diamonds from Sierra Leone”… enter “Nature Boy”
Buddy Rogers & Matt Morgan for the retort! Quite frankly they could care less about puppies & snakes cuz they know it’s always about one thing - the
almighty dollar - and the former Diamond Dynasty cohorts know all about Gods currency… so they have an offer for Sheamus’ poor white azz right now -
$10k buyout o march away and forsake his match with Rogers tonight… Morgan has proven all he needs to against Sheamus (see “Give Me Liberty or
Death”) and nobody wants to see Sheamus get crippled on such a special night… Sheamus feigns possible acceptance - before collapsing Matt Morgan with
a running Brogue kick and ripping Buddy Rogers right out of his designer Armani suit… stripped down to his underwear wrestling gear, Rogers puts on
a quick serviceable match with the enraged Celtic Warrior… he does a few bumps, backdrops and shoulder blocks before succumbing to the Irish Curse
backbreaker & Celtic Cross Razors edge… Sheamus does indeed appear unstoppable - far from the “peasant serf” Rogers & Morgan have tried to pain him
But post match, Rogers & Morgan get their heat back with a vicious double team beat down that climaxes in a ringpost Figure-4 leglock from Rogers
that nearly snaps Sheamus legs in half! Morgan says Sheamus wanted this rematch so bad… HE’S GOT IT @ “DI2!” But Morgan & Rogers always up the ante
- and with their considerable financial clout have managed to add a caveat to the match - if Sheamus loses HE BECOMES THEIR SLAVE! Now Sheamus, do
you wanna fold??? Morgan & Rogers pose and taunt a down Sheamus to end the segment..
MATT MORGAN (2010) w/ Buddy Rogers versus SHEAMUS (2012)
Brief words from the challenger Lou Thesz - who strongly considered boycotting this upcoming match - before deep contemplation revealed that would
only be playing right into the Black Army’s hand… Thesz is abhorred, horrified, repulsed, outraged and disgusted by the antics of Rob Black and his
management firm - and aims to take ALL those frustrations and the anger of a million Fantasy Wrestling fans out on the Black Army’s figure head
champion ALBERTO DEL RIO! Lou Thesz will regain his title tonight and restore fantasy wrestling to it’s rightful glory, free of criminal scumbags
like Rob Black and is ilk!!
Video recap of the original match that spawned all this controversy (see “Give Me Liberty or Death”)… Thesz almost refused to compete, in objection
to Rob Black’s “feed a puppy to a snake” stunt, but decided against it when he realized that would just play into GDT Inc’s hands… Thesz is
determined to regain HIS championship and just take it elsewhere to defend it… he doesn’t need XPW Remixed - the company needs HIM - and they know
this… which is why they’ve been conspiring to get the belt off him for months - and the key reason why GDT Inc went with Rob Black instead of B&B&B
Enterprises to be the 3rd business partner (because Black had the inside track on signing Alberto Del Rio - a man they all believed capable of
dethroning Thesz)… but to make matters even WORSE - despite the “unfounded” allegations, evidence and concern - XPW Remixed official DANNY DAVIS has
STILL been assigned to officiate this match!
Thesz smells a screw job coming a mile away - which is why he actually brings out JOHN CENA with him to watch his back! OMG it’s the Fantasy
Wrestling version of the muthaphuckkin MEGA POWERS right here! Thesz is ready to dethrone Del Rio while John Cena watches his back! The pop for
Thesz was already huge, but this revelation makes it positively monumental…
Ricardo Rodriguez performs the big time, main event entrance for XPW Remixed WORLD champion Alberto Del Rio and he certainly looks, talks and plays
the part of a wildly-successful, legitimate (and ruthless) Cartel leader… The bell rings and we get the slow walk together and stare down, before Del
Rio tries to haul off with a slap! But Thesz catches his hand and the wrestling seminar begins… both men are equally sized (about 6’4” or so) and
grapple, jockey and tussle for position… Del Rio with a cheap shot - chest chop, headbutt and right hands… Thesz gets in a few shots and hits a
cross-body on Del Rio! A loud “XPW! XPW!” chant starts up again.. Thesz gets hung up on the ropes, and Del Rio crotches him before unleashing a
huge running énziguri kick to the back of Thesz’ head… Del Rio with some more stiff rights and shoulder thrusts in the corner…. Del Rio wants to
start working on Thesz already-targeted arm (a victim of Del Rio’s vicious arm breaker - see “Give Me Liberty or Death”)… Thesz gets a comeback spot,
but gets planted with a big leaping DDT straight out of 2011... Del Rio rolls Thesz over into an STF (his own finishing move), but then switches up
into a Crossface when Thesz starts countering… Thesz makes the ropes, but Del Rio continues working on the arm with various submission tactics and
vicious strikes… Del Rio is getting confident, and taunts Cena a little at ringside… he signals for the end, but MISSES a charge in the corner -
opening up the door for another Lou Thesz comeback… he hit’s a series of body-rocking European uppercuts, clotheslines, hiptosses and finishes with a
big Lou Thesz press… but only gets a 2 count!
Thesz is up and Del Rio misses a charge… Thesz takes over with a few more moments of offense, but his weakened arm fails him again and he can’t lock
in the STF - allowing Del Rio to slip out the back door… Del Rio targets the arm and HITS THE ARMBREAKER but Lou Thesz won’t give up…
The fans and John Cena at ringside are cheering him on… all the sudden - SAMOA JOE is spotted casually making his way to ringside! He’s carrying a
steel chair with him that gets Cena all tense and paranoid… until Joe simply unfolds the chair and sits in it, to get a better vantage point of the
match… no sense in Cena having all the fun, right? Now this action draws the attention of Alberto Del Rio as well, and he takes some crucial time
out to shout Spanish profanities at Joe from in the ring…
Referee Danny Davis (aside from a few slow counts, and slight refusals to break Del Rio’s holds on time) has proven to be a somewhat fair official…
but now he’s distracted by an animated Ricardo Rodriguez, who has hopped up on the apron to protest Joe’s involvement… at the same time though,
Ricardo Rodriguez has actually slipped off his dress shoe - and passed it off to Del Rio as a weapon! Truly the mark of a desperate man! But John
Cena is quick to act - hops in the ring - ducks Del Rio’s attempted shoe shot aimed for Thesz - and hit’s a massive FUAA to Alberto Del Rio in the
center of the ring! Huge pop for that! John Cena pops to his feet - only to eat a CRUSHING CHAIR SHOT from Samoa Joe! BAM he goes down like a
shotgun blast, blood cascading down the split in his forehead! OMG Samoa Joe just flattened Cena with the steel chair! Samoa Joe seems to be
trembling with unbridled blood lust! Referee Danny Davis turns around just in time to see Samoa Joe CRUSH LOU THESZ with a chairshot as well! BAM!
Immediately he calls for the bell! Del Rio has been disqualified, but keeps his championship belt!
Winner (by DQ): LOU THESZ
Samoa Joe can’t be stopped and he goes swinging at the referee with the chair (but he flees before contact is made)! He swings at Ricardo
Rodriguez, who hops off the apron… and Samoa Joe unleashes one last concussive chair shot - this one to Alberto Del Rio who was just staggering to
his feet! OMG Samoa Joe has laid out all 3 men! Chaos is unfolding as Joe uses the chair to keep security and XPW personnel at bay!
STOP STOP STOP STOP! Stop the madness! Stop the insanity! A now very angry XPW Remixed president Ed "Strangler" Lewis shows up on the entrance
ramp to quell all the commotion! He's sick of the anarchy, destruction and wanton destruction! There is way too much controversy, bad blood
and animosity to arrange a fair and valid solution to this championship fiasco! So Ed Lewis - in his judge, jury & executioner anger announces the
only thing that can end these title disputes once and for all... something to keep the denizens of Hell OUT - and the gladiators trapped WITHIN!
That's why at "DI2", Ed "Strangler" Lewis is ruling for a Fatal 4-way match between Del Rio, Thesz, Cena & Samoa Joe...
HELL IN A CELL!!
** zzzzzzztttttt!!!! **
Oh my, the fans go wild! The wrestlers (some barely concious) react! The commentars bug out! And finally - TV static cuts in from over the Titan
Tron as the airwaves are suddenly hijacked... it's ROB BLACK! He's still in the building after all! And he's somewhere in a dark,
dank boiler room with his evil party of strippers, rapists and murderers around him... he has the PUPPY in his hands and pulls the black curtain off
a HUGE SNAKE CAGE with the demonic creature writhing about inside! FUCK YOUR TWEETS! FUCK YOUR PROTESTS! FUCK YOUR VALUES, MORALS AND "GOOD
TASTE"! Rob Black knows what you want to see! Rob Black knows what you want to watch! And NOW - YOU GET TO SEE IT, YOU SICK FUCKS!!! HERE IT IS!!
KILL ME NOW! I WILL BE A MARTYR! FUCK THE TERRITORY WARS!!

XPW TV Episode #51
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
This is the new style - XPW Remixed on blue meth… in the wake of Rob Black’s scandalous antics (see XPW TV Episode #50 & “Damage Inc II”) we’ve
lost our PPV slot, changed air time (airing almost 5AM now on the East Coast) and chopped 65 minutes from our weekly serial due to lost sponsorships
(dropping XPW TV to approximately 2:15 with overrun)… But the biggest source of rebellion may come from the XPW Remixed talent themselves - now
united a single independent champion… LOU THESZ regained his XPW World title @ “Damage Inc 2” and now says HE’S calling the shots… let’s hear from
the new XPW World champion right now…
Lou Thesz in ring promo to start… unlike others of his ilk (subliminal shot @ Bruno), Thesz is forced to stay and fight this battle - not pack up and
flee… he’s starting a movement to oust Rob Black from his perch and ban him from fantasy wrestling for good! From now on Lou Thesz - the XPW WORLD
champion - calls the shots, starting tonight when he names his own #1 contender… but before he can, he’s interrupted by ALBERTO DEL RIO!
The former champion is irate and demands his rematch… then they are cut off by SAMOA JOE!
The Samoan Submission machine has a bone to pick as well, and let’s both of them know it with no uncertain terms… but Lou Thesz is a leader and puts
them both in their place… Alberto Del Rio will get his rematch… TONIGHT (big pop!) But Lou Thesz is working personally with the state athletic
commission to add some caveats to this match to guarantee a fair encounter… meanwhile - Samoa Joe is enraged at being overlooked and angrily
confronts Thesz - but the champion is two moves ahead… you see Lou Thesz has already conferred with Commissioner Muldoon about securing Samoa Joe
another #1 Contenders match (pop)… NEXT (big pop)… against this man…
JOHN CENA 2012 (biggest pop of the night)!!
Go-home promo from John Cena putting each man in their place, hyping up the Cenation - and telling Thesz “good luck tonight I’ll see you @ “The
18th Letter”!! Cena and Thesz go nose to nose while Joe and Del Rio do the same! Cena/Joe rematch tonight - and finally - the Del Rio/Thesz rubber
match for the XPW World championship! Stay tuned!
JOHN CENA versus SAMOA JOE ("Winner gets World Title shot @ PPV“)
The winner of this match receives a title bout at the upcoming iPPV "The 18th Letter"... against WHOEVER the champion is at that time...
Samoa Joe wants to start with a handshake but Cena refuses (he won’t shake the hand of a man who sneak attacked him with a chair) and Joe becomes
irate over the slight… The storyline from HitC (see “DI2”) continues tonight with an emphasis being placed on Cena’s weakened ribs and arm - the
result of Del Rio’s pipe attack… it nullifies some of Cena’s big power moves, and Joe’s shoot-style kicks and strikes are just relentless…
surprisingly (to some) - Joe actually reverses an FUAA attempt into a Kokina clutch and almost gets the win - but Cena’s arm refuses to drop a 3rd
time… these guys fight all the way through commercial break and back again, as Striker & Solie rave about how great this sponteneous match has turned
out to be... then they (and the live announcer) begin keeping track of the 15 minute TV time limit, nad you realize this is probably going to a
draw... Finally, per usual, Cena makes the superman comeback - Spikes Joe with a uranage - hits the 5 knuckle shuffle with great fanfare... but when
he goes to the top rope to execute his flying legdrop... he's attacked from behind by TAZ (?!?) Cena doesn't even see it coming - gets
crotched on the top rope - and Joe HITS the muscle buster! He locks in the rear naked choke again and this time CENA GOES TO SLEEP! With minutes
left to spare, Cena's body goes cold and limp in Joe's grip! HE DID IT! The Samoan Submission machine choked out John Cena! With an
unacknowledged assist from TAZ?!?
Winner: SAMOA JOE
(Post match, Taz cannot be reached for comment - he simply shrugs off MSD with an angry glare - and continues his march down the darkened backstage
MARK HENRY versus GREAT GAMA (Special “Strongman‘s Challenge“ match)
Mark Henry challenges Gama to a round of Persian club twirling (a deceptively difficult display of classic strongman power) and LOSES to the Punjabi
Lion before jealously attacking him from behind with the club… from there a bell rings signifying a match and the bigger Mark Henry has his way with
Gama in an impressive display… but Gama gets the heroic baby face comeback, even managing to snare Mark Henry in his swinging neck breaker… but
Henry reaches the ropes to break - hit’s a lariat, knocking Gama over the top rope - before charging Gama and driving them both THROUGH the ringside
barricade wall (ala Sheamus vs. Mark Henry Summerslam 2011)… “HOLY SH**!” and “XPW XPW!” chants as Mark Henry gets the count-out victory… post match
he attacks Gama one last time and crushes him with a World’s Strongest Slam right onto the metal ring steps set up in the middle of the ring, leaving
Gama twitching and shaking on the mat…
Winner (by count out): MARK HENRY
** MATCH SEGUE **
BAM BAM BIGELOW versus DAMIEN SANDOW
Mark Henry looks like he’s gonna go for another shot on Great Gama - when none other than BAM BAM BIGELOW charges from the locker room for the save!
Mark Henry is wise and immediately rolls from the ring to avoid collision, and powders out… that leaves Bam Bam Bigelow to stomp and fume angrily in
the ring… he grabs a mic and unleashes a loud, ignorant, coke-fueled roar - calling out his former manager “Wild” Red Berry and his “singles
superstar of the future” Damien Sandow! Eventually - the high class, sophisticated duo answer the call and smugly antagonize Bigelow for his slovenly
features and idiotic antics - getting him all hopped up - but refuse to fight him! He’s “beneath them” and that enrages Bigelow MORE! He actually
gets his hands on Berry by the lapels of his suit for a moment (BIG crowd pop) - but it’s just a set up for Damien Sandow to attack him from behind…
muay-thai knees and crisp striking from Sandow… Bam Bam manages to fight back and once again goes for Berry at ringside - but this time none other
than former partner BULL RAMOS appears from the crowd to clobber Bam Bam with a hard lariat on the floor… bad guys take over and the result is
elementary - Sandow hit’s the neck breaker and rolls into position -cocky pin and all… Bigelow has been disposed of by Berry and his crew like
Winner: DAMIEN SANDOW
Post match Bigelow attempts to gain a measure of revenge by brawling with Bull Ramos all the way up the aisle and backstage… but unfortunately for
the Bammer, he stumbles right into a hornets nest - out of the inky blackness of the backstage area, Bigelow is set upon by SNUFF and POGO the CLOWN!
The two Xtreme nightmares (and XPW Originals) engulf Bigelow - beat him down - and bury his body in a burning dumpster… the horror of XPW Remixed
continues to grow only stronger - consuming yet another fantasy wrestling soul…
The Bowels of Fantasy Wrestling reside within in XPW Remixed...
XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt (along with his bone breakers Dick Shikat & Dino Bravo) surround Commissioner William Muldoon backstage… but
it’s only to offer a few saccharine-sweet words of praise for Muldoon’s work so far… but Muldoon remains wary as Mondt segues to his “unity within
the company” speech - and how GDT Inc feels excluded from the championship presentation tonight - so in an effort of fairness towards them Mr Mondt is
including a hand-picked GDT Inc official to make sure everything remains on the up and up… that referee will be DANNY DAVIS… but Muldoon only smirks
and says there is either more chance for incompetency tonight - or less - because Muldoon (with the champion Lou Thesz’ urging) has made the main
event a BEST 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS MATCH! Just like they used to in the old days! Mr Mondt’s fake grin drops! Muldoon slips out of the picture while
Mondt’s face darkens and he barks orders at his underlings Shikit & Bravo…
** CUT TO RING **
TAZ (2000) versus MIZ (2011)
Angry Tazz 2000 intro complete with “FTW” title belt, microphone and mean chip on his shoulder… he too targets the XPW hierarchy in a shoot promo -
calling out Mondt’s gambling vices and Rob Black’s previous incarceration… but Tazz main gripe involves Mil Mascaras & Commissioner Muldoon (see
“Damage Inc 2”) - Taz accuses Muldoon of conspiring to keep the FTW champion away from the title scene in XPW Remixed... that's why Taz went
out and struck an agreement on his own (apparently with Samoa Joe - see opening match tonight) with the future XPW World champion to assure himself a
title shot! Taz don't need the Commissioner's help, FTW! Taz tries to call Muldoon out but gets MIZ instead! The XPW Remixed fan
favorite sarcastically applauds and addresses Taz, using celebrity roast-like quips to answer the challenge himself! But Miz doesn’t even have a
chance to remove his ring jacket - as the .5 seconds he averts his eyes from Taz gets him ATTACKED by the Human Suplex Machine! “Sportz” beats
“Entertainment” again here tonight as Taz makes quick, crushing work of Miz, before locking in the Tazmission in the center of the ring… Miz taps out
but has the excuse of being jumped before the bell… Tazz is the winner by submission - but won’t break the hold, even with referees and officials
trying to pry him off - until none other than Commissioner William Muldoon arrives! So Muldoon REVERSES the decision and gives Miz the win by DQ!
(fan pop and Tazz explosion)..
Winner (by DQ): THE MIZ
Commissioner Muldoon answers Tazz call for action with another decree - Tazz will get his action - TONIGHT - when he competes AGAIN - in a 6 man
tag team match later - against MIL MASCARAS! The crowd clearly wants to see it, but Taz just stares at Muldoon from ringside, panting and fuming…
what is he thinking???
HAKUSHI KURO (1995) versus… JOHN MORRISON (2008)!!
Live documentary-style video footage of cameras following Muldoon backstage through the entrance curtain - where in the inky darkness - ATSUSHI ONITA
emerges from the shadows! In a dark and frightening exchange he attempts to intimidate Muldoon before revealing his assassin HAKUSHI KURO lurking
nearby! Is it going to be an attempted homicide on Commissioner Muldoon!?? NO! He turns it around like Walter White asking “what’s my name?”
(Breaking Bad reference) and averts conflict… see, Muldoon has already taken Onita’s threats very seriously (they too have threatened Muldoon’s reign
with various show hijackings and disruptive wrestler hits)… and Muldoon has combed the fantasy wrestling spectrum for somebody willing to answer the
call to arms against Hakushi Kuro in the ring… somebody with the speed, stamina, skill and exotic martial arts style to combat him… and they will
find out WHO that opponent is NOW because that match is NEXT! Cut to commercial… when we return Onita & Hakushi Kuro are already in the ring… and
we get the surprise XPW Remixed debut of JOHN MORRISON! This match was actually filmed at the “DI2” PPV but cut due to time constraints… in a sick
appetizer match (with the kayfabe benefit of Onita & Hakushi being “unprepared” for the challenge - hence the match length), Morrison & Hakushi
utilize an attack style that is half MMA / half Hollywood action movie… they match each other move-for-dazzling-mind-boggling-move, with Morrison
subtly gaining the advantage on each successive exchange… until it climaxes with a springboard somersault kick to Onita (knocking him off the apron)
and a Starship Pain (see “50 Greatest Finishers in WWE History” extras) from John Morrison for the win! JOHN MORRISON DEBUTS WITH A HUGE WIN IN XPW
Winner: JOHN MORRISON
(Morrison powders out post match for the break-up of Onita/Hakushi… Onita shouts him down on the mic for failure and disgrace and all this
hardcore Japanese honor shit… but when he dare SLAP Hakushi in the face (2 times, not just once) - Hakushi finally SNAPS! When Onita demand he
submit to a Kendo stick lashing, Hakushi Kuro instead answers with a spit of BLACK MIST to the face of Onita! The Japanese madman is blinded!
Hakushi Kuro kicks the shit out of Onita before breaking his own Kendo stick over his head, officially turning face again…)
Hakushi Kuro rebels against the twisted brainwashing of Atsushi Onita!
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
XPW Remixed WORLD champion Lou Thesz (w/ Shooters Club back-up) makes an appearence in President Ed "Strangler" Lewis' office..
the now-tenous relationship between Thesz & Lewis necessitates another play from Lou's handbook on how NOT to screwed by wrestling promoters...
if Danny Davis is the assigned in-ring official for the match... then Thesz has sequestered the rights to a 2nd outside official... a
troubleshooting special enforcer who will control the ring perimeter... who is this special enforcer? Ed Lewis demands to know but Thesz tells him
he can find out when the rest of the world does... TONIGHT during the main event! But as a final order in his ultimate lordship - Ed
"Strangler" Lewis has barred any and all members of Lou Thesz' shooters club from the building!
Who is Lou Thesz' special ringside enforcer?? Find out TONIGHT Stay tuned!
The perpetual state of chaos, confusion and upheaval continues to grip the Black Army… but now, Rob Black seems oddly serene… like the guy with
the messiest office but knows where everything is… a smug confidence exudes from Rob Black as everybody around him screams their grievances… instead
he turns it around into a reason for celebration… the CZWO is dead and Black will continue to snipe out the lone straggling members one-by-one,
provided they don’t feast upon themselves first… so Rob Black has prepared a celebration for tonight - a “fantasy wrestling spit roast” so to speak…
so break out the champagne glasses (over heads) and Dean Ambrose is ordered towards the ring to receive his “gift”…
Curly Moe is clearly the lamb being led to the slaughter, and both Solie & Striker on commentary are disgusted with it… it looks like Rob Black may
have been going for an adult comedy, “Old School” movie, Porkys kind of gross out humor here but it just dissolves into the downright rude and
disturbing… like making fun of fat people and retards in one fell swoop… they even humiliatingly strip Curly Moe to his undergarments and slather
him with cooking oil in a disgusting spot… turns vicious at the end when Kilo unleashes a series of concussive-head butts that literally bust Moe’s
head open the hardway (cuz Kilo is on coke and impervious to pain, see?)… Steel chair con-chair-to from Ambrose & Kilo kills Curly Moe and writes his
brand of humor out of XPW Remixed for good…BLAM!
Post match, the Black Army friction continues with “Prince of Darkness” Kevin Sullivan (1982) confronting Dean Ambrose in the middle of the ring
over subordination… this time, Rob Black (w/ Jack Pfefer of course) enter the ring NOT to diffuse it, but fan the flames more… Ambrose & Sullivan
are like Savage & Hogan battling over who belongs in the N.W.O. in WCW - and it appears everybody is congregating behind Kevin Sullivan in the
dispute… but Rob Black (w/ Jack Pfefers evil counsel of course) creates the evil swerve at the end and just like that - everybody sides with Dean
Ambrose… tremendous beat down results and even Snuff lays into his once-master Kevin Sullivan… blade job, chair shots, finishing moves, the whole
9... Kevin Sullivan goes out like Bigelow, Sid and other casualties of the Black Army before him… D.O.A…
FABULOUS KANGAROOS (w/ Wild Red Berry)
THE MOVEMENT (starring Rashad Cameron)
BRIAN KENDRICK & PAUL LONDON (Debut!!)
XPW Tag team champions (see “DI2”) Dudley Boyz take up commentary positions beside Solie & Striker and review their victory… Wild Red Berry
antagonizes them from ringside multiple times during the match… GenME were cocky and condescending in their original masquerade, but now that the
REAL objects of their derision (Kendrick & London) have arrived with their veteran credentials and smart mouths - GenME have been reduced to bitter,
crybaby wannabes… in a continuation of their 2010 Dream Match of the Year (see Big Time Wrestling (BTW)’s “Wrestlefest 2010”) Gen ME & London &
Kendrick tear it up, WCW cruiserweight style while the FabKangs add muscle and classic tag team chemistry… Cryme Tyme 2.0 retain their heat with
outrageous and annoying displays of braggadocio and gang-related antics, but JTG winds up getting bumped around by London & Kendrick and the FabKangs
when they’re on offense… GenME have seen enough and desert the free-for-all at ringside between Kendrick/London & the Movement (including an
incredible set of stereo dives from Brian and Paul onto everybody)… GenME throw their hands up and exit backstage, getting counted out…
Kendrick/London hit a sliced bread/shooting star press combo to JTG for the certain pinfall… but London eats an old fashioned Australian flag pole to
the spine from the FabKangs to break it up (the ref was distracted in the madness)… then while taunting the Dudley Bros heavily, the FabKangs swoop
up Paul London into an improvised DWI-like manuever (Heffernan suplex into an Al Costello power bomb) that finishes London…
Winners: FABULOUS KANGAROOS
Post match Wild Red Berry gets a few (encyclopedic) words to incite the crowd and Dudley Brothers further - put over his FabKangs as REAL tag team
champions, screwed by American incompetence - and drive everybody crazy… but after egging the Dudley Boyz onto the breaking point, the FabKangs and
Berry quickly flee the ring and avoid contact! That leaves the Movement led by Rashad Cameron to play post-match foils - attempt to attack the Dudz -
get cleaned out one by one - and finish with Rashad Cameron himself (the former “Sabian) getting driven through a table by the Dudley Death Drop!!
Dudz pose in the ring with their belts to big cheers, while the FabKangs and Berry point to their brains and slink backstage…
Dudley Boyz continue to add to their championship resume with a set of XPW Remixed tag team titles...
A new segment that puts over cut matches in fast, MTV-styled, video hype clips - usually set to some kind of heavy metal or Hip Hop background
music.. this is the kind of stuff that would have appeared on the now-dormant XPW Online, or within the 3rd hour of XPW TV that has been

ROB VAN DAM versus DAVID OTUNGA
David Otunga’s vain, narcissistic entrance is preceded by RVD’s rousing pro-marijuana Television entrance… commentators cover the FOCUS/RVD
“Hollywood script vs. Abstract freeform” feud that climaxed with Gorgeous George Wagner (1950) being shaved bald in the center of the ring (see
“DI2”)… this is the 2nd time Otunga and RVD have clashed on the XPW Remixed stage, but Otunga doesn’t have the benefit of claiming “unprepared”
tonight… Commissioner Muldoon gave him a week to get ready and he still loses in relatively short order… the “pro rasslin” drama is played out at
the end when Otunga finally gets the brief advantage - and tries calling out to the back for assistance… but a hood-wearing Gorgeous George won’t
budge from his dressing room! He REFUSES to show his bald head in public! Otunga is deserted and foiled! 5-Star Frog splash from RVD seals the deal
like a lick of honey…
Winner: ROB VAN DAM
** MATCH SEGUE **
JINDER MAHAL interrupts RVD’s victory celebration… much like the closing days of his feud with Great Gama, Jinder Mahal accuses RVD of the most
horrible of all sportz-related sins… PED’s! RVD is on Performance Enhancing Drugs! THC! These outrageous accusations and threats of criminal
lawsuits immediately draw out XPW Remixed commission WILLIAM MULDOON!
As an official he is forced to recognize Jinder Mahal’s grievances, but until formal testing can be completed, Jinder Mahal’s charges are just heresy
and allegations… but they certainly outrage the reigning XPW TV champion RVD (and his platoon of pot-puffing fans behind him)… after it seems
Muldoon has once again laid down the law - we get a 2nd interruption… MATT MORGAN & “Nature Boy” BUDDY ROGERS!
They too have a HUGE bone to pick with Muldoon over his last minute change to their match at “DI2” that wound up costing them a cool million bucks!
They go about trying to strong-arm THEIR way into the already-crowded XPW TV title scene as well - until a popular theme song finally cuts them off…
enter SHEAMUS (2012)!!
The affable Irish homeboy is all cheers and grins after his victory at “DI2” - which incidentally has only yielded $250k and NOT the full milly as
specified… yet - but Sheamus does indeed plan on getting paid and full, which is why he has a lean placed on Morgan/Rogers that says a portion of
every victory purse must go to Sheamus until his million dollar debt is paid! Who’s the slave and master now?? Everybody is itching for action, and
since everything is going to Hell already, Muldoon makes the 6-man tag match now! RVD, Sheamus & MIL MASCARAS (pop) versus Jinder Mahal & Matt
Morgan… and what was SUPPOSED to be Taz, but since he decided to no-show it will be a handi… and we’re cut off by the final interruption of the
segment - reigning XPW Boston champion SHANE DOUGLAS and his valet LIZZY BORDEN!
Douglas cuts another shoot promo on being "ignored" and "disrespected" by the XPW Remixed brass, despite holding the highly
coveted XPW Boston championship... and since Douglas isn't booked tonight for some strange reason - he's taking it upon himself to fill
Taz spot after his walk out! Shane Douglas is booking himself into the 6-man tag team match! Coming up next!
Good guys work together - bad guys can't - so they lose... all 6 men get a chance to get their spots off in accelerated fashion until Sheamus
runs over Mahal with a Brogue Kick and RVD pins him with another 5-star frog splash... the good prevail, but post match both Sheamus & Mil Mascaras
make their individual intentions clear by making the universal "the belt is coming around my waist" gesture directed towards TV Champion RVD
- who gleefully welcomes all the challengers...
**Mildred Burke promo introducing her training partner “ROWDY” RONDA ROUSEY! The two exist together to co-promote women in MMA and combat sports -
both being the absolute best in their respective genre… Burke has been training extra hard ever since her “loss” to Ad Santel and is making an open
challenge on the next XPW TV Episode to any MALE COMPETITOR in the locker room! Burke + Rousey = a union of epic proportions! **
"Rowdy" Ronda Rousey (Strikeforce 135lb champion)
is in Mildred Burke's corner!
** CUT **
** Cali Crippler Head Coach Ad Santel speaks briefly with MSD… Santel has proven his superiority in XPW Remixed and redeemed himself as a head
trainer… but he still has a bad taste in his mouth from his loss to the Shooters Club in their “Best of 7 Series” months ago… now Ad Santel already
*declined* meeting Shooters Club veteran Dan Severn in a match, citing “weight class differences”… and reminds you the Shooters Club aren't
even in the building tonight... but Ad Santel is NO coward - and has plans to make his next move… TONIGHT… **
** CUT **
** Backstage confrontation continues between RVD and an angry Jinder Mahal - who continues to accuse RVD or PED abusage… when suddenly DAMIEN SANDOW
& his manager Wild Red Berry saunter into the scene! They too have some cocky, condescending words for RVD and others of his ilk that cheat to win…
Mahal & Sandow are surrounding RVD… until Commissioner Muldoon shows up to cool things off… he sets up a tag team match for next XPW TV Episode…
Jinder Mahal & Damien Sandow versus RVD &… but before Muldoon can name a partner, RVD cuts him off and says “don’t worry, I know just the guy to be
partner next week”… RVD throws a mean glare @ Sandow & Mahal and exits stage left… Who will RVD pick to be his tag team partner? Find out next XPW

COLT CABANA (2012) versus GUNNER (2014) w/ Jessica Darlin
Competitive squash with the former NWA champion (2012) Colt "Boom Boom" Cabana ultimately falling to Gunner's devestating F5 finisher
(after a Jessica Darlin lowblow)... it's what happens after that match that is so "controversial", in typical XPW Remixed fashion...
Gunner & Darlin get a live mic and go berzerk keeping censors fingertips busy until they have to abruptly cut to commercial!
Gunner is president of the woman haters club and lets his sexist, misogynistic bile spew... what's worse than his degradation, is his valet
Jessica Darlin - who agrees wholeheartily and has some harsh words for some of her contemporary fantasy wrestling divas... a world Gunner & Darlin
compare to that of pornography...
JESSICA DARLIN: We hate the overall commercialization of porn and fantasy wrestling and what it’s doing to the business. From website
whores to softcore ice queens you have a bunch of people using the word porn-star to describe themselves. Excuse me... "Internet models & Adult
film actresses".. More and more the girls getting in this business are using it as a stepping stone to what they think is legitimacy. Being on
FOX’S "SKIN" or wrestling in ROH doesn’t erase how you got there: WITH A C[edited]K IN YOUR MOUTH! I’m looking for the people who
get IT. The ones who don’t see roles to act in and box covers to increase their feature dance rates. What happened to the exhibitionist? Or the
slut who just can’t get enough? We know who we are and we’re a dying breed... (sensually caresses Gunner's chest and goes on to explain why
she calls him "Gunner"... beforewarned NSFW)
I believe you should profit from your work in this business but don’t make it your reason for getting here... The business is breeding prostitutes
looking for a paycheck & fame versus sluts getting paid for doing what they love... Ahhhh, Gunner... No that’s what I should have said about
the reason I returned! You can always count on the vets to make you cum! Gunner has one of the cocks that made me addicted to this business.
He’s an incredible performer who can rough you up just right. Coming back and working with him makes this long career worth every shot in the mouth!
As far as interesting I’d like to report that my ass is still in great shape after all the cock. When Gunner got in there the last thing I
worried about is whether he’d tear me up. I just wanted more! I’m glad you enjoyed it! There’s a girl who’s enjoying everything you can get from
this business. Except that she’s the real deal! A truly sexual girl who can lead this business back into the gutter with me! I never played to the
porn populist. If all the work I did meant the few awards I received than so be it. They just don’t like us Extreme girls. They should look at the
sex part of that scene no matter the company. That craps corrupt and I’m not. Fuck your awards! I love cum in my mouth, a dick in my ass, and a
twat on my face! That’s my reward. Fuck your lead roles and your box covers. I’ll take filler and fucking parts all day...
Del Rio (heralded by Ricardo Rodriguez) enters first... Thesz enters last with much pomp and fanfare... he finally takes the mic to announce the
special guest enforcer for this match... the man, the myth, the legend and undefeated champion... the greatest of all time
The Brockton Blockbuster
(huge crowd pop - angry Del Rio reaction - excitable commentator chatter)
These two match up very well, size and science wise… Del Rio is just a bit more anxious, and the presence of Ricardo Rodriguez and referee Danny
Davis solidify that desperation… Lots of hold/counter-hold/reversals to start, and the two men match each other hold for hold… Thesz works the wrist
of Del Rio hard, earning a few one counts… Del Rio with a big side headlock takedown on Thesz, but Lou counters and power bombs Del Rio right into
the corner turnbuckle! Thesz pressures the left arm of Del Rio and attacks with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex and flying hammerlock… after being
somewhat even to start the match, Thesz has blown past Del Rio on the past few exchanges… Thesz with a go-behind into a German suplex and another
close 2 count… Del Rio tries for a desperation face rake, but when he comes back with a flying énziguri attempt - Thesz ducks and locks his deadly
STF on Del Rio in the center of the ring! Del Rio TAPS OUT within seconds, even if it appears the referee (Danny Davis) was slightly hesitant to
Winner of Fall #1 (by submission): LOU THESZ
Referee Danny Davis pulls Thesz off and takes an extra long time admonishing him for not breaking the hold sooner… and Del Rio uses the momentary
distraction to attack Thesz from behind… he hit’s a double knee breaker to Lou’s arm and goes immediately to work on the appendage… figure-4 arm
lock but Thesz rolls out… so Del Rio counters with an arm scissors takedown into a wristlock - but still can’t get his actual finisher applied… on
commentary Striker says Thesz has been training with his Shooters Club day and night for counters to Del Rio’s arm breaker… Del Rio continues to work
on Thesz’s left arm.. Thesz powers to his feet, but Del Rio uses a hair-pull to arm drag him back into a wristlock… They have another exciting
scramble on the mat, and Thesz sneaks Del Rio into a small package… 1!.. 2!.. Del Rio shifts positions and puts Lou’s shoulders on the mat… 1!.. 2!
(Thesz lifts his shoulder) 3!! (??) What? YES! Referee’s decision is final and he awards the pin fall victory to Del Rio! Thesz did NOT get his
shoulder up in time!
Winner of Fall #2 (by pin fall): ALBERTO DEL RIO
Now the jig is up, and Thesz is irate in confronting Davis - thus allowing Del Rio another sneak attack advantage - but this time Thesz is ready and
goes old school on the Mexican aristocrat… explosive overhead belly-to-belly suplex… hiptosses… hurling dropkicks… Thesz follows up with a huge
clothesline, but hurts his injured arm on the exchange… Rodriguez looks to aid in some kind of interference (another pipe attempt perhaps?) but the
always alert Rocky Marciano (he would catch flies with his bare hands in uptown Brockton diners for fun) is in the mix to scare him off and get big
cheers! Del Rio even takes a few precious moments to scream at Rocky from the ring, but the “Brockton Blockbuster” don’t back down and just points to
his chin as if to say “Go ahead, try and hit me!” Del Rio doesn’t take the bait, but turns right around into a Lou Thesz drop toehold in the center
of the ring! Thesz is scrambling into position for his STF finisher! But somehow in the fight - the referee Danny Davis gets caught in the eye with
an errant elbow! He staggers away, momentarily blinded! At that moment, Thesz ducks a swing from Del Rio - propels him off the ropes with an Irish
whip (shout out Danno O’Mahoney!) - and catches Del Rio with a pinpoint Thesz press! 1!.. 2!.. 3!.. The crowd counts aloud! But not referee Danny
Davis, who is still staggering around favoring his “eye”!!
Thesz immediately rolls off to angrily confront Davis, but is snagged from the rear by Del Rio - and TRAPPED IN THE ARMLOCK! NOW all the sudden Davis
recuperates and is eager to ring the bell in Del Rio’s favor! But Thesz doesn’t quit! Instead he muscles all the way to the ropes to earn a
(delayed) break… enter end segment… out of desperation, Del Rio calls for the pipe from Ricardo - that he slides in the ring… but Rocky runs around
the side and winds up SOCKING Ricardo in the jaw - knocking him out instantly! But now the pipe is in play - Del Rio SWINGS and MISSES Thesz - gets
reversed - and BONKED with the pipe at the hands of a vindictive Thesz! Del Rio crashes to the mat in a heap! Thesz on him for the cover… when all
the sudden, Danny’s “eye” starts acting up again and he staggers away from the action! So muthaphuckking Rocky Marciano slides into the ring and
counts the pinfall himself! 1!.. 2!.. 3!! THESZ RETAINS THE TITLE! Rocky raises his arm and the belt! Danny Davis tries to confront Marciano
after the match - even angrily sticking his finger in his chest! So Rocky Marciano SOCKS him in the face too! Davis goes cold like HBK and Tyson at
the end of Wrestlemania 14! Thesz & Rocky Marciano - two heavyweight champions of the WORLD - celebrate in the ring to end the show!
Winner (and STILL XPW World champion): LOU THESZ
ROCKY MARCIANO WILL BE RETURNING TO BROCKTON MA ON SEPTEMBER 23rd 2012 AND YOUR BOY MSD WILL BE THERE TO CHRONICLE THE ENTIRE EVENT! KEEP ONE LIT
AND IN THE AIR FOR THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME!
** FADE OUT **
Then the horror unfolds for the live viewer - and those at home who caught the internet clips...
** Rob Black & Toots Mondt came to the ring with uniformed police officers and had Rocky Marciano criminally escorted from the building! (for
striking an official) **
** When Thesz actually made a lunge for Black - the set up became apparent... through the crowd, 4 figures beseiged the ring and attacked Thesz!
It's... Ad Santel and his Cali Cripplers!! Oh my, the former mentor turned fantasy wrestling blood rival Ad Santel has sought his vengeance
with this brutal attack! He directs the Uso Bros (with Tamina) to execute stereo top rope splashes to Thesz - hurting (maybe breaking) his ribs...
then Santel locks in a devestating Regal stretch to make sure... Santel has declared his intentions and his bid to be #1 contender has been signed
off by Rob Black & Toots Mondt! **
New #1 contender to challenge Thesz next week... AD SANTEL!

wrestling's first gimmick match - "the tag team bout" - with some exciting matches on tap! Stay tuned!
XPW Remixed president ED “STRANGLER” LEWIS from the podium, like a presidential speech… he formally introduces and hypes the XPW World
championship match later tonight between Thesz & Santel… in addition, a special caveat has been added: a “coaches challenge” to occur tonight between
two teams of Thesz & Santel… this bout will prove who the better wrestling mind is - the main event will settle the better wrestling body… the
incentive being - whoever wins the coaches challenge - will get to name the Stipulation of tonight’s main event championship bout! Stay tuned, and
enjoy the show!

** Coaches Challenge **
USO’s (w/ Ad Santel) versus SEVERN & YOUNGER (w/ Thesz)
The first chapter in our 2-part championship competition tonight... Santel leads his well-oiled tag team combination to victory, and a small measure
of retribution against the team that defeated them in the "Best of 7 Series" last year... commentators cover the match history and build
anticipation for tonights main event... Severn remains a beast in the ring, when not overtaken by temper - and Younger takes a collection of Xtreme,
new age bumps... but the Uso switcheroo results in twin top rope splashes to Drake for the pin. Santel earns further coaching bragging rights and
momentum going into the championship bout tonight...
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Rob Black (with right hand legal consigliore Jack Pfefer) in discussion with his Black Army troops… they finally own the KotDM title and scene in
XPW Remixed - and soon enough that will bleed into further title contention… Dean Ambrose demands a title shot for himself, but Rob Black needs him
to do another quick Black Army *favor* first…
Caught somewhere between the worlds of light and dark, Hakushi has turned to a shades of gray character with his rebellion against evil Atsushi Onita…
Hakushi is a ninja assassin anti-hero who is now getting fan pops for his ill assortment of martial arts moves because he’s targeting bad guys with
them… in this case - former stable mate and fellow brainwashed goon JUN KASAI… a rematch ordered by Commissioner Muldoon as atonement for their
skills - and demanded by Onita to extract revenge against Hakushi… commentators discuss the mystical and forbidden codes of honor, respect and
sacrifice that drive this Far East feud (instilling an importance in the bouts outcome, beyond simple title aspirations)… this is a sacred blood feud
- and Hakushi helps turn it into a holy bloodbath with his decimation of Jun Kasai (who never the less continues to come off as the insane, maniacal,
Death Match warrior he is)… the real loser here is Onita - who lets his fiery Far East temper and ego take over and winds up accidentally sabotaging
Kasai when a weapons scenario goes awry… Kasai takes the top rope freefall through a table (taped with light tubes) - Onita takes the GREEN MIST to
the face from Hakushi - who finishes Kasai with a top rope moonsault onto the death and debris…
(Post match - Hakushi is attacked from behind by DEAN AMBROSE! The firmly-cemented Black Army leader stomps him down until Onita recovers enough
to join the assault himself... Onita & Ambrose double team Hakushi and spike him to the mat with a double powerbomb through steel chairs to regain
their criminal heel heat and put over the Devil-may-care, violent attitude of the Black Army...)

** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Intrepid backstage correspondent MSD and cameras catch #1 contender AD SANTEL (and troops) exiting the office of XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots”
Mondt and there is clear collusion between the two… a connection between the *hit* Santel performed on Thesz last week - and the title shot he got
this week… Ad Santel has a few harsh threats for Thesz tonight - and officially announces the main event will be a SUBMISSION MATCH! “The Cali
Crippler” Ad Santel will break Thesz tonight!
JINDER MAHAL & DAMIEN SANDOW (w/ Wild Red Berry)
ROB VAN DAM… & WEEDMAN!!
Brief meeting of the minds backstage with Mahal & Sandow (w/ Berry) coming to a gentleman’s agreement… both despise RVD and agree XPW Remixed needs a
new TV champion (Mahal because he believes RVD is a P.E.D. using cheat - and Sandow concurs, adding RVD is a drug-using ignoramus)… match was ordered
by Commissioner Muldoon last episode, with RVD promising to find a partner… after Mahal & Sandow (w/ Berry) enter - RVD the XPW Remixed Television
champion gets the big entrance to introduce his partner… WEEDMAN! Greatest entrance in pro wrestling history commences - bad guys are enraged and
insulted - until Weedman & RVD light up the tandem tag team offense that is part Air Dog 4:20 / part High times = all awesome… proving they are no
joke. After a succession of quick moves executed upon Mahal, Damien Sandow & Berry suddenly decide so they are so disgusted and *above* this trivial
nonsense - they actually abandon Mahal’s tag and leave the building with their noses in the air! Jinder Mahal is left behind to get run through like
the Red Line and snuffed out in the middle of the mat like a blunt roach… 5-Star frogsplash from RVD for 3 - and cue the plant-puffing,
crowd-pleasing victory celebration outro…
”REAL DEAL” DAMIEN STEELE versus RICARDO RODRIGUEZ (“Tuxedo Match” for the right to become Del Rio’s assistant”)
The climax of multiple threads tonight… Steele’s beat down revenge tour, his mini-angle with Rodriguez and the *END* of somebody’s XPW Remixed career
as well… angle itself is sidebar humor to Alberto Del Rio’s dead serious World title chase… ever since Del Rio’s arrival, Damien Steele (former
company commissioner, now reduced to barely-employed laughingstock) was angling to position himself as Del Rio’s personal assistant… instead he was
shocked and mortified (not to mention angry) to learn Ricard Rodriguez had accompanied Del Rio to XPW Remixed! So began the hilarious vignettes of
Steele trying to get Ricardo replaced… finally - in the wake of Del Rio’s championship loss to Thesz (see “DI2”) - he angrily issued this match
ultimatum… whoever wins will become Del Rio’s personal assistant… but not just any match - it must be the humiliating and demeaning tuxedo match…
which is an excuse for a few minutes of low brow comedy…
Winner: RICARDO RODRIGUEZ
Steele winds up stripped to his speedos and loses to Rodriguez… after the match Del Rio had a backstage skit with XPW Remixed VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt
who kind of laughingly addressed the situation and alluded to Del Rio becoming a bit of joke… which only spurred Del Rio to cut a cold, vicious promo
promising great evil and treachery enroute to retaining his spot as XPW Remixed World champion… these angry, vindictive threats were met with a smirk
of cool manipulation from Mondt who continues to stir the pot backstage… Del Rio even had a brief face-to-face vignette with his UNCLE Mil Mascaras
on his way out of the building in a huff (their first time meeting in XPW Remixed) - in which Mascaras spoke to him in Spanish about the dishonor he
has brought the family and how he doesn't even deserve a World title rematch with his actions... you can imagine Del Rio's reaction to
Meanwhile, a few days later news broke the wrestling underground wire: Damien Steele took a 2-story fall out a window in Puerto Rico that resulted
in 18 cranial and facial fractures, 3 tibial fractures, optic nerve cupping, torn meniscus and LCL as well as multiple contusions and lacerations on
the face chest shoulders and arms. Huh. Steele never wrestled again. In traditional XPW Remixed fashion - humor quickly turns to horror…

** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
JOHN CENA (w/ Paul Bowser) and XPW Remixed commissioner William Muldoon! Shared history and respect between the two and Cena gives Muldoon props
for doing a good job in such a sea of anarchy… it's now "everyman for himself", fastest gun in the West rules... Muldoon’s advice to Cena is
take the Joe/Taz union threat seriously and focus on the #1 Contendership… Cena’s advice to Muldoon is to end the uncertainty around Tommaso Ciampa
desertion because it’s wearing on his constituents … Cena & Muldoon end with the handshake of mutual respect and vow to watch each others backs…
In XPW Remixed - the cycles of past, present and future come together in spherical form. The beginning and the ending - it creates a place where
we respect the shooters and hookers… with that in mind - XPW Remixed proudly presents to you, America’s first Mixed Martial artist…
"The Cali Crippler of XPW Remixed"
Born Adolph Ernst in 1887 (from Germany none the less - you can see why his stage name would become “Ad Santel”) - Santel was a practitioner of catch
wrestling, one of it’s most physical and taxing forms… some of the earliest reports of his matches were all exceptional. The "Lincoln Evening
News" (1/9/1912) called Ernst (not yet “Santel”) "easily one of the most skillful wrestlers in America. He worked before three Lincoln audiences
last year and displayed a greater variety of locks and holds than any wrestler in the game." Much like others of his ilk (and a product of their
time), Ernst toured with a vaudeville group but found it too fanciful for his tastes. Ad Santel was a real wrestling champion. He was seriously
considered one of the top light heavyweight wrestlers on the planet.
A World Championship Claim[/size]
According to the January 27, 1913 edition of the Wichita Daily Times (Wichita Falls, TX), Adolph Ernst based his claim to the World Light Heavyweight
championship “upon the defeat he administered to Dmitral at Woodward, Oklahoma, on January 14. He secured the first fall in twelve minutes and the
second in two minutes and ten seconds (remember - back in the day championship bouts were contested in 2 out of 3 falls matches). Ernst is 26
years old, a native of Germany; he weighs 175 pounds and would be a straight heavyweight if he were five pounds heavier.”
A Cripplers Legend
Wrestling swerves, “hits” and bone-breakers are nothing new in wrestling history - but XPW Remixed has a habit of shining the light on those dark,
shady and unsavory places… one of those mythological “hits” came in 1911 in the build-up to the epic Gotch vs. Hackenschmidt rematch… Ad Santel
(still operating under various assumed aliases) was a training partner in Hackenschmidt’s camp - and gave his expert direction on catch wrestling from
the coach position… but little did Hackenschmidt suspect - Santel had been paid a cool $5k (that’s like 5 MILLION today) by Gotch’s camp to make sure
the Russian Lion never made it to the match… Santel did a number on Hackenschmidt’s knee, and the big guy wound up jobbing out to Gotch in the
championship bout… all because of the deadly actions of a remorseless shooter… Ad Santel would go on to run the San Francisco wrestling scene - and
even had a match lined up against Frank Gotch in 1916... But for some reason, Gotch withdrew from the match and it never happened…
O.G. of MMA
The early 1900s were the golden age of pro wrestling's legitimate lineage. Top grapplers made their bones on the carnival circuit, handling
local toughs, and fought for higher stakes against other elite catch stylists known as "hookers." While the likes of Georg Hackenschmidt and Frank
Gotch wrestled over heavyweight supremacy - Ad Santel ruled the realm of Light Heavyweight… meanwhile - judo diaspora was underway - and many of the
original founders students traveled abroad to spread knowledge of "the gentle way."
One such traveler was Tokugoro Ito, a fifth dan black belt from the Kodokan. Ito left Japan in 1907 and landed in Seattle (starting his own dojo)…
but as was VERY common back then (and a MAJOR recurring theme of XPW Remixed) - pro rasslin paid more money, so Ito settled within that realm as well…
he toured up and down the Pacific coast territory alongside such early MMA/rasslin luminaries as Mitsuyo Maeda (see “Broken City Championship
Wrestling”) calling himself the “World Judo champion“… that was Ito‘s wrestling gimmick… as was his destiny - the pro wrestling circuit took Ito to
San Francisco CA USA in 1916… Ad Santel country…
Santel was already claiming to be the World Wrestling Light heavyweight champion… and he engaged Ito in one of the first “style vs. style” (or “MMA”)
bouts… When Santel and Ito met on Feb. 5, 1916, Santel emerged victorious after thumping Ito's head off the floor to take a TKO win (picture a
young Frank Shamrock powerslamming Igor Zinoviev). With his victory, Santel *took* Ito’s title & gimmick and proclaimed HIMSELF the world's top
judoka! The following year he traveled to Seattle to challenge the transplanted judoka of the Seattle Dojo. On Oct. 20, he had a rematch against Taro
Miyake, with whom he had drawn the previous year. The Seattle Daily Times wrote that Santel half-nelson slammed Miyake "so hard that the Japanese
had dizzy spells for half an hour after the fall." Two weeks later, Santel took fourth dan Daisuke Sakai out in two falls, submitting him both times
with short-arm scissors, more contemporarily known as a bicep slicer. Santel's feud with judo came to a head in March 1921, when he traveled to
Japan and publicly challenged the Kodokan (think DX driving a tank up to WCW Towers). While the Kodokan frowned on professional matchups involving its
current students and ordered them not to participate, it didn't stop their judoka from accepting the challenge. On March 5 at the Yasukuni
Shrine, Santel took on fifth dan Reijiro Nagata, whom he slammed for a TKO. The following day, in a captivating hour-long battle, he grappled to a
draw with another fifth dan, Hikoo Shoji. But the point had been made - Santel was an absolute beast.
Road to XPW Remixed
In wrestling lore, Ad Santel is said to be a major influence and coach to a young Lou Thesz… but in the upside down world of XPW Remixed - Ad Santel
debuted as a treacherous, backstabbing heel (similar to the role he played in the Gotch/Hackenshmidt fiasco)… in this case, he wooed Thesz’
handpicked fantasy wrestling successor B-Boy to join his West Coast cali cripplers camp and betray Lou… B-Boy accepted and his betrayal set off an
epic Cali Cripplers (w/ Ad Santel) versus Shooters Club (w/ Lou Thesz) feud that climaxed in the first “Best of 7 Series” in company history… though
Santel’s team was defeated (and he *lost* his world judo champion claim to Masahiko Kimura in the war) he proved his methods were no joke… suffering
from a broken arm in his fight with Kimura, Santel had a brief run with the arm cast gimmick (ala Cowboy Bob Orton) as he coached his Cali Cripplers
team (including West Coast luminaries the Uso brothers & Tamina) from ringside… Ad Santel returned to solo action and defeated Miz in a classic
“Sportz vs. Entertainment” clash before being upset by Mildred Burke in a War Games match (see “Scene of the Crime”)… Santel voraciously denied ever
tapping out to Mildred Burke in that match, despite footage to the contrary… none the less after much controversy and debate, he accepted a match
with Burke and *beat* her by submission (see XPW TV Episode #50)… however, eager to overcompensate for that feud (and still steaming over the Best of
7 series loss) - Ad Santel made the shocking decision to execute another wrestling “hit”… this time his target was the XPW Remixed World champion
(and former protégé/turned/rival) Lou Thesz - who he attacked at the end of XPW TV Episode #51... Santel is a dangerous crippler, hooker and shooter
who knows all of Lou Thesz’ secrets and weaknesses… like a pitbull with lockjaw, or a shark entering its feeding frenzy - once Santel gets a hold,
he’s not breaking until it’s broke off… Territory Wars beware… the O.G. of MMA has a bone to pick with you…
quote:“Ad Santel Too Scientific” (Truth – December 29, 1927)
As wrestling matches go nowadays, the grappling contest between Ad Santel (13.2), light-heavyweight champion of the world and the New Zealand
champion, Walter Hogg (14.7) at Cessnock, near Newcastle, last week must be accounted a respectable affair.
In one of the rounds Hogg bit Santel and on another occasion kicked him in the chest.
Santel, however, slightly evened matters by pushing Hogg’s face into the mat.
Apart from these little pleasantries, the bout, which was won by Santel by two falls to none was a most interesting exhibition.
Though Santel was successful, it was only his greater knowledge of the fine points of the game that enabled him to triumph.
Hogg is a magnificent specimen of manhood, and is possessed of phenomenal strength.
For the first two rounds Santel had a busy time withstanding the efforts of the big fellow to pin him to the mat, and it was apparent that the contest
was going to turn into one of science versus strength.
In the third round, however, Santel began to assert himself, and get busy with holds that bothered the big New Zealander. It was sheer strength alone
that enabled the Maorilander to break free from some of the grips that Santel put on him.
In the fifth round Santel put a combination head and headlock on Hogg and gained a fall.
The sixth round was a sensational period. Hogg made an attempt to put the Boston grab hold on Santel, and although he didn’t succeed, Santel had a
narrow escape, and it was only by remarkably clever movement that he managed to break free.
The succeeding rounds were strenuous, Santel, who is as clean a wrestler as ever entered the ring, showed on at least one occasion that he is a
dangerous man to practise rough-house tactics on.
Excitement prevailed early in the sixth round, when Santel put the splits on the Maorilander.
Hogg managed to escape from this predicament, but almost immediately Santel tied him up with a front body scissors and arm lock.
This time Hogg failed to get free, and Santel gained another fall, thus winning the bout, which was refereed by Joe Shakespeare.
** Interview with the XPW Remixed WORLD champion **
MSD: People are billing tonight’s main event as “Shooter vs. Hooker”… care to elaborate on the difference between the two?
LOU THESZ: There were only five hookers that I know of who wrestled actively - Karl Gotch, Billy Robinson, myself, Ray Steele and Ad Santel.
There were others who had the ability to be hookers if they had wanted it badly enough…
MSD: Now the success of Ad Santel’s cobra-kai MMA/wrestling school in San Francisco has given rise to the term “ripper”…
LOU THESZ I think of a ripper as somebody who would head butt his opponent…. A hooker could apply the hook to become a ripper if he needed
and do pretty vicious damage… The objective however was to "convince" his opponent to submit.
MSD: So “hooking” could be considered a form of advanced catch grappling/MMA technique? And does that cross-over sit well with you?
LOU THESZ: A hooker also had to have the mind set to avoid the hooks of his opponent and the more hooks you had in your "store" the more you
had a chance of getting on your opponent. Martial arts has become such a broad, even crossover, term and "hooking" is melding into it. I am
delighted to see it happen. It would be a shame to waste such skill and knowledge of combat. At my age, I’m even learning new hooks and moves.
MSD: Tonight’s main event is an example of a true fantasy wrestling match-up… how do you think you compare to Santel - a man who mentored and
molded you into the champion you are today?
LOU THESZ: While this is an interesting exercise for the imagination, I want to mention Ad Santel, a middle weight, who was invited to Japan
to wrestle. He beat everyone in such fast order, the Japanese had no more work for him. He had spent his money and could not afford a ticket home,
so we wrangled an invitation into the martial arts world. When he trained for a few weeks with them, beat them all - and I do mean all weights,
classes and styles - the martial arts group bought his ticket back to the States to "save face". Ad Santel was the most versatile opponent I ever
saw. His mind was "programmed" for combat of any form. He had speed and courage beyond any other. What he lacked was ambition for the spotlight.
His motivation was truly love of the competition. Ad was dangerous because it was a game to him. Wrestling/hooking was his total focus.
MSD: To what do you credit your success, and do you have plans to compete in any further fantasy wrestling dream bouts - win lose or draw?
LOU THESZ: My success was due to the era and the men who befriended me. The world was changing for professional wrestling and I was prepared
for both sides of the game. Tragos was not going to compromise his wrestling principal's for anyone, so he taught me to defend myself in a
contest. Ed and Ray could see the handwriting on the wall for professional wrestling so they prepared me for the business end of protecting myself.
MSD: So as a shoot for the World championship you feel confident in your skills… and you think Santel could handle any one of these modern day
warriors? Anybody else?
LOU THESZ: What I am trying to tell you is, my skills were not kept sharp enough for the likes of George or Ad (I didn't have the luxury
of that kind of time on the road), but I would put my money on either of them in a level contest with today's warriors. Ed “Strangler” Lewis
would have been a good bet too, just because he was a tree - impossible to fell.
MSD: Thank you for your time and good luck tonight, champ.
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
MSD is getting a few words from superstar agent (and legendary Boston-area promoter) Paul Bowser RE: his client John Cena’s title quest - and the
return of his client MCMG from injury… when they are violently interrupted by the destructive tandem of TAZ & SAMOA JOE! The two thugs perform a
wrestling “hit” on Bowser - attacking the untrained promoter and locking him in the Tazzmission! They quickly destroy him - intimidate MSD into
fleeing - and wreck the office - then close with a few up-close shoot comments for Cena, Thesz, Muldoon and others “in power” before knocking the
cameras into static…
TRISH STRATUS & WENDI RICHTER
NATALYA NEIDHART & JASMIN ST CLAIRE
XPW Remixed Woman’s champion Trish Stratus & Wendi Richter are a tag team dynamo made in fantasy wrestling history - and ripe for prime time ratings
(which their segments always clearly deliver)… Neidhart is professional foil of course, but how did Jasmin St Claire get this TV opportunity? There
are some girls that will do *anything* to be in the spotlight, and that’s Jasmin’s character in XPW Remixed… she treats the “match” more as an
opportunity to get face time on camera, and lets Natalya do all the work… Niedhart holds her own but takes all the bumps for Stratus & Richter who
get all their crowd-pleasing spots off in quick succession… finally Nattie has enough - force tags St Claire (who clearly didn’t plan on actually
*competing* tonight) and let her get killed… flying bulldog from Trish ends the match definitively… chalk another one up for the baby faces tonight
as “girls just wanna have fun” is the theme… until the dark, sobering strains of AWESOME KONG’S theme song start playing and the arena goes
near-black! Kong storms the ring - seemingly ready to confront Stratus AND Richter head on… but only breaks down into maniacal laughter at ringside…
her psyche out move leaves Stratus & Richter puzzled and wary - while Kong just hungrily stares them down from ringside and moves backwards up the
entrance ramp… Awesome Kong is still in the title picture, and is starving for a rematch… will Trish deliver??
Winners: TRISH STRATUS & WENDI RICHTER
Awesome Kong still haunts the XPW Remixed woman's title scene.
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Down on their luck former cohorts Matt Morgan (w/ Buddy Rogers) and Alex Riley (w/ girlfriend Missy Hyatt) are arguing amongst themselves as to who
is to blame for the dissolution of their once-mighty union (they both take some verbal shots below the belt)... Alex Riley has a gentleman's
proposal to end their disagreement... but Morgan *SNAPS* in response! He turns from gentleman to insane animal, tossing Riley about backstage and
powerbombing him through a table! SCREW being a "gentleman"... Matt Morgan is a BEAST and he wants an XPW Title shot!!
SAMI CALLIHAN vs. MADMAN PONDO vs. THE MESSIAH (Triple Threat Xtreme Rulez match)
Piggybacking off the ladies ratings bonanza, is the Hour 2 lead-off “Xtreme Rulez” bout (“Xtreme Rulez” for the most part being a lighter, TV-rated
version of the typical XPW Remixed “Death Match”)… again - typically one of the highest rated segments which is why they are so prevalent on XPW TV…
in this case - the remnants of the once mighty (but now dismantled) CZWO (“Combat Zone Wrestling Originals”) are forced to do battle - gladiatorial
pit style - by their captor, defeater and company minority owner ROB BLACK… Messiah & Callihan’s feud - turned partnership - has completely imploded
as commentators cover the arc of that storyline thread (including abandonment’s, betrayals and “ghost sightings”)… MadMan Pondo has been reduced to
his savage base elements - just looking to make somebody (mostly himself) bleed profusely… Callihan & Messiah perform unconscious team work to
eliminate Pondo - before finally killing themselves… Rob Blacks fingerprints are all over this match as the commentators discuss his tyrannical rule
and bizarre business decisions... contest quickly turns into one-upsmanship between Messiah & Sami Callihan - with each upping the ante... but when
it comes down to it... Sami apparently still harbors some of that old CZWO "respect" - because he refuses to slay former comrade Madman Pondo
permenently when he gets the chance... but not Messiah. He swoops in to drop Pondo through the death trap of tables, glass, tacks and fire - proving
his violence knows no limititations... Messiah & Callihan stare bloody daggers through each other to end the segment...
A segment that puts over cut matches in fast, MTV-styled, video hype clips - usually set to some kind of heavy metal or Hip Hop background music..
this is the kind of stuff that would have appeared on the now-dormant XPW Online, or within the 3rd hour of XPW TV that has been lost...
John Morrison def. Ruckus (shake hands post match)
Rocky Romero def Ricky Reyes (Romero cheats 2 win over former Pitbulls partner)
Sable def. Annie Social in a grudge match (Sable continues to call out Trish Stratus for a title shot)
Generation ME def. Kendrick & London & PG-13
(Tag Team triple threat) (PG-13 interjected to get themselves included - wound up crushed by London/Kendrick - but sneak pinned by GenME)
Kaos (w/ Titus O’Neil) def. Human Tornado (entertainment match that still gets both acts over)
Mark Henry def. Alex Riley (w/ Missy Hyatt) (Squash match)
Sandman & Necro Butcher def. New Jack in handicap match (Violence as Sandman & Necro continue to spread their "anti-hardcore" message)
Started with the MOVEMENT (led by Rashad Cameron) approaching and accusing Commissioner Muldoon of RACISM (based upon his decision to ban Rashad
Cameron’s posse from ringside during his TV title match, amongst other things)… leads to this match against the reinvented, everyman favorite Colt
“Boom Boom” Cabana (2012) and the RETURNING (from injury to Sabin) MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS! They come back guns blazing and we have an exciting 6-man
free for all with constant motion and no rest holds.. But the trickery, deceit, street smarts (and +1 man advantage) of the Movement put them over
the top and Cabana gets pinned after a BLKJeez double foot stomp off the top… everybody stays looking tough with the Movement just displaying an
extra level of heel compliance… Movement give their NOD-like “salute” to end the match and segment…
Cameras catch an argument in the Focus locker room between David Otunga and Gorgeous George Wagner (still hiding his bald head under multiple
humorous wig-types)... David Otunga is fired from being Gorgeous George's agent but Gorgeous George is dropped from Focus... poor little GG
(the mindless piece of ass-candy) doesn't know which way to go... next week on XPW TV - Gorgeous George Wagner vs David Otunga! Winner keeps
the "Focus" brand-name and logo (and gets the token girl too)!
David Otunga vs Gorgeous George for the rights to "FOCUS"
Reigning XPW Remixed tag team champions the DUDLEY BOYZ take the ring for a promo… they put over XPW Remixed as being hallowed ground, and blessed to
be competing here… real heavy duty, “respect the game” parlance from the “greatest tag team in fantasy wrestling history”… on the flipside of the
coin, the Dudz are aware of the criticism that they didn’t *earn* their tag team title shot… and they want to prove they belong here and are fighting
champions… the Dudz call out former champions (and thorough-bred Un-Americans) the FABULOUS KANGAROOS… but instead of the Aussie nightmares, they
get… sweet Southern rock??
Enter HEATH SLATER & HONKY TONK MAN
More “I’m too good for this dump” banter from Slater & HTM (despite the fact they haven’t won a match in forever) that winds up getting them crucified
and slain by the tag team deity Dudley Boyz in a quick 2-on-2 squash match… HTM has his guitar but the fans want tables, and the Dudz are happy to
oblige… Heath Slater winds up getting the guitar busted over his head and 3D’d for good effect…
Winners: DUDLEY BOYZ
(but before Slater can be driven through the table… Slater is rescued by the FabKangs! Al Costello pulls Slater’s body off the table - the
manager Wild Red Berry distracts them with ringside banter - and Heffernan pushes D-Von Dudley off the top turnbuckle… in an impressive display of
power and tag team chemistry, the FabKangs wind up hoisting big Bubba Ray Dudley into their improvised DWI finish - power bombing him through his own
table! The utter disrespect! FabKangs make a statement and Wild Red Berry gives it the official stamp - FabKangs vs. Dudley Boyz in a tag team title
rematch at “The 18th Letter”!!)
Classic XPW Remixed-style clusterfuck that always winds up flowing together perfectly… this segment starts with the TV entrance of Mildred Burke &
Strikeforce 135lb champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey… Burke is coming up to the END of her year-long contractual prison! Come October 1st she will once
again be legally able to compete against other women! And the FIRST person Mildred Burke wants to call out is… AWESOME KONG! That big
bully has gone on terrifying the XPW Remixed woman’s division for too long… Kong isn’t the best female wrestler on the planet… Trish Stratus isn’t
either… MILBRED BURKE IS! And to prove that - we conclude with her open challenge to any male in the locker room tonight… but her call to action is
instead answered by…
The evil porn temptress (and ex-Womans division pres who signed away Burke’s contractual freedom to begin with) interrupts with snotty arrogance and
catty jealousy… but her barbed words are just a set-up and distraction… after goading Rousey into a shoving match (both her and Lizzy tumbling from
the ring) - Mildred Burke is blindsided by SHANE DOUGLAS! The current XPW Remixed Boston champion is noticeably larger than Burke and quickly
embarrasses her - dropping her right on her head with a Pittsburgh Plunge for the *pin*…
Winner: SHANE DOUGLAS
”The Franchise” of XPW Remixed has the mic for another unscripted *shoot* promo - he’s still feeling slighted and disrespected by the lack of
attention he’s receiving from XPW Remixed match-makers, so he keeps stealing his own segments - hence his interruption and schooling (shout out to
Dean Douglas) of Mildred Burke. Shane Douglas would just like to remind you of a WOMAN’S PLACE in this great sport! His filthy porn valet Lizzy
Borden agrees and has some profanity-laced words for Burke & Rousey… nobody can beat SHANE DOUGLAS! NOBODY! He is the leader of the Revolution here
in XPW Remixed, and his camp just got bigger… just then he’s interrupted by a familiar theme song…
Enter SHEAMUS (2012)!
[color=light green]Classic Irish-mobster style, especially with his newfound wealth (see “DI2”)… “Nobody can beat Shane Douglas”?? SHEAMUS BEAT
SHANE DOUGLAS! Even disbanding his original crew of XPW Remixed flunkies! Now - with a little greasing of the right palm (toots mondt) - Sheamus
gets another chance to prove that claim… a championship chance… Sheamus vs. Shane Douglas for the Boston championship! NOW!
Crowd pops! Shane Douglas freaks out and starts begging off! Rowdy Ronda Rousey streaks in to the ring and tackles Lizzy Borden; mounting and
pummeling her! She quickly snaps Borden into a devastating ARM BAR! Shane Douglas is agog, but as he moves towards them - he is charged from behind
by a Mildred Burke dropkick! Douglas & Borden tumble from the ring! Sheamus joins alongside Burke & Rousey to form a fan-favorite triumvirate!
We’ve got a Boston championship match NEXT! Stay tuned!
When we return from commercial Douglas is working on Sheamus with neck vices and chin locks as the commentators cover their rivalry (see “(Another)
New Years Revolution”)… Lizzy Borden is selling her arm at ringside as Rousey’s cross over union with Burke is promoted… Sheamus fires back - hits
his succession of moves - but before he can hit the Brogue Kick.. He’s bum rushed from behind! Two men hit the ring to blindside Sheamus and stomp
him down, in full flagrant view of the ref! Ring the bell! Sheamus wins by DQ but Douglas keeps the belt!
Winner (by DQ): SHEAMUS
The two attackers are none other than “ROCKSTAR” JOEY KAOS (with “I beat Austin Aries” written across the back of his custom T-shirt) and his
Primetime Playaz tag team partner TITUS O’NEIL!! The PtP both wear a version of Shane’s “Revolution” T-shirt! This must be new union Shane alluded
to! His mentorship of the next era of fantasy wrestlers! PtP & Shane Douglas destroy Sheamus and pose (w/ Borden) flaunting their Revolution colors
to end the segment…
PtP join the Revolution! MILLIONS OF DOLLARS! MILLIONS OF DOLLARS!
Starts with XPW Commissioner William Muldoon recapping his fallout with pupil Tommaso Ciampa in somber tones… he can’t move forward as a professional
until this matter is resolved - and calls out Ciampa to iron out their differences right now…
TOMMASO CIAMPA appears (to moderate boos) - stone cold expressionless, with a stark blond goatee - shades of Viper Randy Orton meets Hollywood Hogan…
as expected, Ciampa is sick of playing second-fiddle to Muldoon and being known simply as an Olympia underling… he demands Muldoon play favorites
with his Commissioner position and assign Tommaso a title match… this is the first time Ciampa has broken his silence since this angle started…
before Commissioner Muldoon can rebut him - we are interrupted by a familiar theme song..
Enter Phil “Gunner” Shatter (2013) and Jessica Darlin (2001)!!
Gunner is bigger and thicker than everybody in the ring and shakes them all down accordingly.. Big bully swagger from Gunner who has ditzy Jessica
Darlin hanging on every word and action… Commissioner Muldoon finally speaks up for himself and raises Gunner’s ire - but of course the big, bad,
muscle-bound Gunner won’t confront the aging, yet still tough as nails XPW commissioner to his face… he waits till Muldoon turns to confer with
Ciampa (ostensibly to make a one-on-one match between him and Gunner next) - before blindsiding Muldoon from the rear with a huge double-ax handle
sledge! Gunner attacks Muldoon from behind and lays waste to him in the middle of the ring! Meanwhile Ciampa just STANDS there watching! Gunner
hit’s a devastating F5 onto William Muldoon! These attacks on authority figures are raging out of control since Rob Black came in, Solie rants on
commentary! ANOTHER F5 from Gunner to Muldoon! Now he is about to set up a THIRD F5 - onto a steel chair produced by Darlin - when young Olympia rep
and former XPW Remixed woman’s champion ALEXXIS NEVAEH makes the desperate run-in!
She covers her coaches body with her own, begging Gunner to show remorse… but Gunner’s angry face turns to one of sick, happy perversion at the
sudden thought of getting his hands on her… Darlin cheers him on to crush her as well! Alexxis is pleading with her former stablemate Tommaso Ciampa
to *DO* something to save their coach - but he does NOTHING! Instead, Ciampa turns his head and walks away! He’s leaving up the entrance ramp!
There’s nothing stopping Gunner now, and he GRABS Alexxis by her throat and hoists her up into F5 position! He’s gonna KILL the girl! Suddenly -
like a Patriot missile shot from a cannon - a savior bolts to the ring:
He BURSTS past Tommaso Ciampa on the entrance ramp (nearly knocking him down to get past him) - hits the ring - brawls with Gunner - reverses into an
FUAA, driving Gunner from the ring for good - and rescues Alexxis Nevaeh! John Cena is the knight riding in on the white steed to save the girl and
protect Olympia honor! Hustle, loyalty, respect and GUNNER & CIAMPA HAVE NONE!
We're back from commercial for an in-ring promo from John Cena (a continuation of the past segment and segue to the next)… Cena is sick of
the politics, pandering and violent anarchy that is besieging XPW Remixed (and therefore fantasy wrestling as a whole, because XPW Remixed is the
best)… he made a vow when he came here to stand for Hustle, Loyalty & Respect - which is why he continues to stand and fight alongside guys like
Thesz, Bruno, Muldoon & Mascaras… guys who believe in the same thing. The end is near when Cena gains the XPW World title for the first time in his
fantasy wrestling career - but first he must take down a pack of hungry wolves at the gate - Samoa Joe & Tazz (and their new found shooters alliance)
- the guys who SCREWED Cena out of a World title match @ “The 18th Letter”! Time to pay! Finally we get the ominous theme song for Samoa Joe - and
the two towel-wearing killers stalk their way to ringside… they surround Cena in the ring, and slowly enter - boxing him in… they look to surround
Cena and smash him down - when the pyro & confetti burst from the entrance ramp stops them - enter Cena’s partner for the night MIL MASCARAS!
SAMOA JOE & TAZ vs. MIL MASCARAS & JOHN CENA
Much history between Mascaras & Cena (going all the way back to BCCW’s 1st PPV (“respect the shooters & hookers”) as we fly right into action…
Texas-Tornado style match with all 4 men brawling wildly… spills ringside and into the fans as well… Cena & Joe going at it while Tazz & Mascaras
grapple uncooperatively (a continuation of their own feud at “Damage Inc 2”)… end comes after a sequence up on the entrance ramp between Joe &
Mascaras… out of nowhere a black-masked assailant SMASHES Mil Mascaras in the back/shoulder/arm with a steel pipe! Just as quickly, the assailant
flees but the damage has been done - Mascaras holds his arm in pain… immediately Joe seizes the advantage, and snaps on a vicious arm breaker
(bending Mil’s arm over the metal ramp edge for added leverage)… Mascaras has no choice but to *TAP OUT* as his arm bends at an obscene angle. Cena
rescues his partner from any further damage, and stays beside him as paramedics check his arm... meanwhile Taz & Joe raise their arms aloft in
victory, and for perhaps the first time in their XPW Remixed runs... sadistically smile! For finally, the collusion is revealed - Samoa Joe & Taz
have performed a series of wrestling hits in return for a World title guarantee! Taz fights the champion next week on XPW TV (and doesn't give
a DAMN whether it's Santel or Thesz) - and then will defend the title against SAMOA JOE @ "The 18th Letter"! Taz & Joe have it all planned
out - and it will result in the greatest match in fantasy wrestling history at "The 18th Letter"! For the XPW World title! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Recap of the long, storied history between the two - going back to Thesz’ days of training and his very first World title win in 1937 (something Ad
Santel is now taking full credit for)… Shooters Club vs. Cali Cripplers feud carried XPW Remixed during it’s first season… now we get the main event
entrances, MMA walk-outs and big fight feel… the two men refuse to shake hands to start and we’re off… Thesz (the bigger and taller of the two)
takes early control with some grappling and take down attempts, but Santel counters every time… They have a fast-paced early exchange that gets the
crowd on their feet chanting “THIS IS WRESTLING!”! Another series of counters - Thesz into a neck bridge submission - Santel escapes - and Thesz
dominates him with some hurling dropkicks… headlock submission attempt from Thesz (in a nod to “Strangler” Lewis’ old finish)… Santel gets to the
ropes to break, sneaks a thumb to the eye, and stretches Thesz into a modified camel clutch into a cattle mutilation-like move… even Striker has
trouble identifying some of the exact names of the holds because they turn into hybrids out of necessity… we go back and forth, exchanging
submissions, head scissors, and takedown attempts - Thesz clearly the greater physical specimen, but the wily Santel knows just enough dirty tactics
to stay engaged… finally those tactics boil Lou to the breaking point and the brawl is on…
Stiff strikes, chops, European uppercuts and kicks… Thesz gets countered and driven into the steel ringpost, shoulder first (an already weakened
appendage as a result of his wars with Del Rio)… Santel immediately targets the area with a variety of arm submissions… Thesz fought back and got
Santel into the corner… but Santel pulled him into guard and went for a kimura attempt… Thesz winds up hitting Santel with a back suplex, followed
by 3 snap suplexes in a row… neck breaker from Thesz and he’s trying for the STF - but Santel fights it off and slides out of the ring to regroup…
back inside Santel strikes with a backbreaker but gets caught with a Lou Thesz press and flying forearm… the crowd is going crazy at the tireless
display of wrestling chemistry displayed here, and Thesz begins to build momentum (but still can’t get the STF)… finally things get really heated - a
ref gets bumped - and Santel reaches into his bag of tricks for the old “brass knuckles” bit (something that helped win him plenty of matches in XPW
Remixed, including driving former pupil B-Boy from the company for good)… it’s a nod to the William Regal-school of heel treachery and also a
testament to the depths Santel will stoop to for victory & financial gain… but he never gets the shot off - Thesz uses expert wrestling to disarm him
- and ultimately tie him up into the STF submission! Santel tries everything to counter (including rolling through) but simply cannot! Thesz is too
big! Ad Santel ultra-dramatically TAPS OUT! Ring the bell! Lou Thesz has forced Ad Santel to give up!
Winner (and STILL XPW Remixed WORLD Champion): LOU THESZ

XPW TV Episode #53 (Thesz vs Taz)
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
The theme of the night is “fantasy matches”… and how those dreams quickly turn to nightmares within the confines of XPW Remixed… we are counting
down the days to “The 18th Letter” iPPV and XPW Remixed World champion Lou Thesz is being put through the meat grinder. A dark union of shooters
targets Thesz in the form of Taz & Samoa Joe… so soon after surviving a near wrestling “hit” from old mentor Ad Santel. But Thesz can never quit,
lest this thing he loves be swallowed by the forces of evil forever. So he stands fighting - beside an army of like minded soldiers that finds its
ranks steadily slimming by the week. As the forces of the Black Army grow united and stronger. The battle for the very soul of fantasy wrestling
continues here within the XPW Remixed ring. Bear witness as the forces of light and darkness do battle and seek RETRIBUTION!

LAND of DREAMS
"Father, O Father, what do we here,
In this land of unbelief and fear?
The Land of Dreams is better far
Above the light of the Morning Star."
#1 Contender TAZ 2000 hijacks the show to start... brief promo that recaps his path of rage and climaxes tonight when he beats Lou Thesz for the XPW
Championship! Taz promises to contest a fantasy wrestling dream match at "The 18th Letter" against his Partner-in-Crime Samoa Joe! But Taz is
answered by Commissioner Muldoon!
"The Solid Man" William Muldoon speaks on behalf of law, order and the trail of righteous authority figures Taz left in his wake - with the booking
power he does have Muldoon has made a fantasy wrestling dream match for Samoa Joe tonight to keep him removed from the main event World Title main
event (everybody wants to see a clean finish - and for Thesz to make Taz tap!)… and Muldoon states he has sought an injunction that states if Taz
attacks ANY authority figures tonight he will LOSE his title shot!
But we get our final interruption of the segment when Jack Pfefer (right hand confidant to Rob Black) emerges to reveal another legal gripe against
Muldoon’s reign as commissioner - enter referee DANNY DAVIS (circa 1987)… the ref is angry over the end of Thesz vs. Del Rio II (see XPW TV Episode
#51) and has filed a complaint… but in the fantasy wrestling court of law that gripe can (and will) be settled TONIGHT! When Danny Davis challenges
Commissioner Muldoon to a MATCH! Winner gets to determine the official referee for tonight’s main event!
"Dangerous" Danny Davis vs William Muldoon
Winner determines the special referee in tonight's main event bout!!
Crowd pleasing Sheamus promo touting his XPW Remixed history with Shane Douglas and #1 contendership… when he’s answered by “Rockstar” Joey Kaos
(with an “AUSTIN ARIES IS MY B***H” T-shirt on)… Kaos likens Sheamus to pale-faced invaders of the past who come wreaking pestilence and disease…
lots of heel stalling and cowardly avoidance from Kaos to ratchet up the crowd intensity - until Sheamus tricks him into a start - and BOOM there it
is… 18 seconds later Kaos is pinned and complaining to anybody who will listen that he “wasn’t ready”.
** match segue **
SHEAMUS (2012) versus REVOLUTION (3 on 1 Handicap match)
[color=gold]Cue angry entrance march of the Revolution. Shane Douglas (w/ Lizzy Borden) alongside Kaos & Titus O’Neil lambastes Sheamus with a
vicious, degrading promo. Using the surge of negative crowd energy as momentum, Douglas cons Sheamus into accepting the challenge and lays waste to
him. The Pale Swordsman (I like that much better than “Great White (Power)” fights back admirably for a short period of time - but ultimately the
3-on-1 advantage is too much and the Revolution instantly get their heat back after Douglas pins Sheamus (following a Pittsburgh Plunge from Shane - a
frogsplash from Kaos off the top rope - still wearing his Rockstar imitation “World Champion Wrestling” man title belt, mind you - in which Shane
Douglas then swooped in for the pinfall on Sheamus while Titus O’Neil held his ankle down from outside the ring)… post match the Revolution get to
strut their stuff (including a PtP “millions of dollars! Millions of dollars!” shake) while Shane Douglas taunts Sheamus by rubbing his XPW Boston
championship in the Irishmans face and declaring him outnumbered at “The 18th Letter”… Join the Revolution or die! Their championship match @ the
PPV is "GAUNTLET RULES"!! Sheamus won't even get a *chance* to lay his hands on the franchise!
Winner: SHANE DOUGLAS & the PRIME TIME PLAYAZ

** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
XPW President meets with Rob Black - both cordial, yet wary and suspicious of each other.. Lewis admits Black’s ratings stunt on XPW Remixed TV
#50 broke viewership records, even as it seemingly cost XPW Remixed a fortune in sponsorships… but Ed Lewis is now questioning Rob Black’s decision
to partner with Taz/Joe in this diabolical scheme to rid Thesz of the XPW World title… but Rob Black says the deal *IS NOT HIS*! Toots Mondt is the
man responsible for sanctioning the the run of “hits” perpetrated by Joe & Taz! Rob Black sees the unified future - and Lewis should too! The
Strangler seems miffed at being undermined by Mondt, as Black loudly leaves the scene to chat on his cellphone with advisor Jack Pfefer (about the
upcoming match pitting Onita against traitor Hakushi)… Lewis is left to stare coldly off-camera…
Dark humor backstage sketch to start - with Dean Ambrose telling Rob Black he’s not comfortable teaming with coked-up and crazy Kilo any further -
thus necessitating he then accompany even *crazier* Black Army affiliate Atushi Onita into battle tonight against the traitor Hakushi (because
handicap matches have proven so successful in the Black Army formula, and even tonight with the Revolution taking down Sheamus earlier) Ambrose &
Onita stand at the receiving end of a few of Hakushi’s Hollywood action film moves - but ultimately collapse on him 2-on-1 and it becomes unfair.
Commentators discuss Hakushi’s search for penance, and Striker even relates a story of how he humbled himself and apologized before his previous coach
William Muldoon to help in that atonement… when things get really hairy for Hakushi, none other than fantasy wrestling rival (see XPW TV Episode #51)
JOHN MORRISON makes the run-in to even things up! Match quickly turns into a wild, tornado tag... John Morrison spurs Hakushi back to life and the
two high-flying dynamos combine to eject Ambrose from the ring! Green mist from Hakushi = Starship pain from Morrison = Onita pinned in the center of
the ring! The once-cocky Black Army bullies are now bitter and whining in loss - as Commissioner Muldoon has seemingly stuck another booking barb in
the side of Rob Black…
Coincide that with a man from a different generation yet similar stock, who has yet to work even a single day in the WWE. So honestly, who’s
*better*? What credentials do you use to determine that? Regardless - these two men write a heavyweight pro wrestling masterpiece. Joe gets beasted
- returns the favor - and the two draw down to a near stalemate… the difference in the two primarily being their striking ability (Severn 2 or 3
compared to Joe’s 10-level near mastery)… and that’s the deciding factor in their bout tonight. See below footage for a real-world example of Severn
getting KTFO (from Worcester MA) For Samoa Joe, he only establishes his #1 contender credentials. First Bruno Sammartino felt the wrath (see their
Best of 7 series) - now Dan Severn. Next up the XPW World championship - and a Dream Match with his timeline forefather TAZ at “The 18th Letter!!”
Cue to 3:58
Winner (by TKO): SAMOA JOE

XPW Remixed WORLD champion Lou Thesz speaks on Samoa Joe, his opponent tonight Taz - and their dark alliance.
GORGEOUS GEORGE WAGNER versus DAVID OTUNGA (for rights to the FOCUS brand name and trademarks)
[color=gold]Although not billed as such, this too could be considered a fantasy wrestling “dream match”… the original showstopper main event Gorgeous
George versus his storyline lawyer/agent and all-around egotistical entertainment force David Otunga. FOCUS fractured as a result of their failed
attempts to regain the XPW TV title, and resulted in Gorgeous George being forcibly shaved bald (see “DI2”)… he has since appeared in every vignette
wearing a different assortment of oddball wigs (from 1800s powdered variety to loud, Lady Gaga inspired get-ups) to big laughs… segment plays out
mostly as such, focusing on the “entertainment” spectrum of fantasy wrestling… the beautiful GG at ringside portrays the mindless, token model girl
who is completely naive - until the swerve at the end reveals her managerial brilliance after all!
It turns out GG was behind the scenes pulling the strings all along! Pitting Otunga and Gorgeous George against themselves in a failed title race
against their own egos! GG swerves *both* men (resulting in a double KO spot) - before pinning both to declare HERSELF the victor! In the wacky
world of pro wrestling logic, this victory is as valid as a notary stamp! GG is now the wealthy owner of all the FOCUS brand names, trademarks and
patents! Otunga and George can’t believe their luck (when they come to)! GG has just become the Anna Nicole Smith/Lee Iaocca’s wife/sneaky
billionaire heiress of XPW Remixed! She truly showed tonight how she STAYS IN FOCUS!
The two massive heel acts of Jinder Mahal and Damien Sandow (both from WWE circa 2014ish) combine to provide nuclear heat for the uber-popular RVD
(circa WWE 2006ish)… Mahal’s crusade to portray RVD as a P.E.D. abuser has worn heavy on the champions mind, as has the psychological barbs leveled
at him by Sandow & his timeline fantasy manger Wild Red Berry (both masters of the “PHD”… “playa hating degree”)… thankfully for RVD the one
advantage he does have in this battle is the complete and utter disdain and disrespect his opponents have for each other. Mahal & Sandow simply do
not trust each other and can only work together in brief, disjointed spots. So their friction allows RVD the opportunity to execute a host of daring
2 on 1 (or 2 on 3, when he’s diving on everybody from ringside) trademark moves… once again Sandow apparently *leaves* Mahal to his demise… but
quickly returns when RVD has his back turned, and Mahal laid out from a 5-star frog splash… but thankfully RVD’s lightning fast reflexes allow him to
counter Sandow just in time - duck an attempted cane shot from Berry - and pin Sandow with a roll-up! RVD retains! Clouds of smoke from the
appreciative audience hang in the air!
Winner (and STILL XPW Remixed TV champion): RVD 4:20

** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
XPW VP Joseph “Toots” Mondt (with his gang of enforcers Dick Shikat & Dino Bravo) have a mobsters-styled run in with Commissioner Muldoon… it’s
like Capone vs. the Untouchables here, with Mondt *strongly* suggesting Muldoon let Danny Davis ref the main event tonight because it’s “better for
business”… but Muldoon sticks to his judicial guns and lawman’s badge to state he can never be bribed or bought off. But as you’ve often seen in
these type of gangster-flicks, what becomes of lawman who don’t conform?.. Muldoon eyes Mondt warily as the VP just chuckles to himself and lights a
cigar… corruption vs. integrity. Who will win out?
Trish Stratus answers the fans and critics with a sharp in-ring promo... she accepts ALL challengers - starting with a championship rematch at "The
18th Letter!" Trish Stratus will defend her title, honor and *LIFE* against former champion AWESOME KONG! The female fantasy wrestling dream match
of the decade! "TRISH! TRISH!" chants from the crowd, but the commentators can't help speculate that Stratus just signed her own death
A segment that puts over cut matches in fast, MTV-styled, video hype clips - usually set to some kind of heavy metal or Hip Hop background music..
this is the kind of stuff that would have appeared on the now-dormant XPW Online, or within the 3rd hour of XPW TV that has been lost...
Matt Morgan (w/ Buddy Rogers) def. Alex Riley (w/ Missy Hyatt) (Squash match - Morgan continues to display main event potential)
Mark Henry def. Sabu (“Xtreme Rulesz match”) (Mark Henry on an unstoppable tear using strongman tactics in a no-holds-barred environment - with Sabu’s masterful bump taking to accentuate
Sunny def. Jasmin St Claire (bikini pose down) (later a backstage vignette runs of the two making another catty challenge to see who can be the biggest gold digger and find themselves a man with
championship credentials first… ends with Missy Hyatt apparently joining their hunt as well as she finally dumps Alex Riley for his futility)
Sable def. Natalya Neidhart (Another fantasy wrestling “dream match” - Sable wants a title shot against Trish - after Stratus beats Kong at the PPV)
Awesome Kong def. 3 women in a handicap match (Kong proves she is ready to take her title back at "The 18th Letter" when she collides with Trish Stratus)
Colt Cabana/Ruckus/Human Tornado def. Heath Slater/Honky Tonk Man/PG-13 (Slater & HTM’s call to southern rock arms was answered by Hip Hop parody act PG-13... expected shenanigans ensue and the ultimate baby face
“sportz entertainment” team wins in crowd-pleasing fashion)
Ricky Reyes def. Rocky Romero (Reyes beats his former partner in the 3rd match of their trilogy - earning the nickname “Havana Pitbull” for himself)
Pogo the Clown def. Bull Ramos (brawl through the crowd - break up of their brief union - barbed wire shovel to the head from Pogo KO’s Ramos - who winds up *buried alive* in a
backlot of the arena)
New Jack gets arrested (He tried calling out Sandman & Necro Butcher for their double team last week - but Necro & Sandman are cop-calling snitches who press charges on
New Jack for “unprovoked assault” last XPW TV Episode)
Sami Callihan def. Messiah (“KotDM #1 Contender match“) (Kilo freaked everybody out with his guest commentary - Sami keeps getting baby face pops from the crowd - and his long term feud with Messiah in
XPW Remixed ends in redemption… and a sneak attack from Kilo who bludgeons and bloodies Sami Callihan post match - while Messiah (forsaking any
semblance of *honor* between he and Callihan) simply walks out on the beating)
** Dark Match Main Event **
Rob Black calls out Hawk & Animal (LOD) to join his cause - they expectedly decline (drawing a huge crowd reaction nonetheless) - and Rob Black
reveals his master plan all along when he siccs a team of freelance assassins upon LOD to drive them out of XPW Remixed for good… Introducing to XPW
Shoot promo from Rashad Cameron and his “movement” (consisting of JTG, Shad Gaspard, Michael Tarver)… and as we learn tonight - ‘The Havana Pitbull”
Ricky Reyes! The deadly Cuban shooter has some brief threats for the rest of XPW Remixed as part of the movement. Rashad Cameron closes with some
more harsh, controversial accusations of RACISM levied at Commissioner Muldoon and promises that whitey can’t keep the Movement off the card
"The Havana Pitbull" Ricky Reyes joins the movement.

** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Cameras catch XPW President Strangler Lewis confronting Toots Mondt behind closed doors (left slightly ajar)… Lewis rages about being undermined,
but Mondt explains himself away as only doing what’s best “for the business”… Mondt is all about the “money” and Lewis is all about the “sports”
which makes them the best partners… but Mondt is moving the company away from the *past* (William Muldoon, Lou Thesz, John Cena) - and into the
*future* (Taz, Samoa Joe, Dean Ambrose)… this is the unified XPW Remixed front they envisioned… and Lewis either needs to roll with it, or...
(silent, deadly intentions are inferred - but Lewis doesn‘t flinch)… Toots Mondt reiterates that threats to their reign like Paul Bowser have been
removed - and Lewis reminds him Commissioner Muldoon still remains a legal thorn in their side... but Toots assures him the Muldoon matter is being
handled... Ed Lewis does agree however it is a veritable fantasy wrestling masterpiece that Mondt has orchestrated (Thesz vs. Taz) and it has his
purist glands salivating… and agrees to trying it Mondt’s way this time. Lewis & Gagne failed (see XPW TV Episode #47: Thesz vs. Mr. Perfect). Rob
Black ultimately failed (see XPW TV Episode #51). Now Mondt has put together the perfect one-two combination to end storyline rival Lou Thesz’s
championship reign. But if this doesn’t work, there will be repercussions for any perceived “coups” Mondt may aspire to… Strangler Lewis unleashes
an ice cold glare of all-power that even has Dino Bravo & Dick Shikat unconsciously shirking away… GDT Inc united. But for how long?
DANNY DAVIS vs WILLIAM MULDOON (winner names special referee for main event title fight)
Tale of the tape for both men, as commentators discuss the crooked refereeing record of Danny Davis... Davis comes out with the boxing robe, escorted
by camera-hog Rob Black… Muldoon answers with classic wrestler trunks, and displays a quiet stoic reserve… starts off like the first McMahon/Austin
*match* on Raw with heavy stalling from Davis camp - until Muldoon is cajoled into accepting a "hand tied behind my back" challenge (in regard to an
off the cuff comment Muldoon made earlier about this match)... but even with one arm, Muldoon outboxes (classic 1800s style), out hustles and out
wrestles Davis - scoring multiple takedowns - despite Black’s animated ringside antics… Muldoon smothers Davis on the mat and quickly locks in him in
a submission hold - all with one arm! Davis with the desperate tap-out… but Rob Black pulls the referee out! Booo! So Muldoon breaks the hold to
confront Black - and must answer to a roll of quarters Rob Black just illegally slipped Davis! Danny Davis is still wounded, yet dangerous with a
weapon in his hand - but the roll of quarters is useless! Muldoon dodges the attempted strike (snaps the bands holding his arm behind his back) and
hit’s a KO blow in return - Jack Dempsey style with his bare fist! Despite overwhelming odds, showmanship, and evil alliances stacked against him -
“The Solid Man” William Muldoon still lays down the law! 1!.. 2!.. .. 3!
Winner: WILLIAM MULDOON
(Post match a furious Rob Black finally snaps and takes the ring for a profanity-laced tirade directed at the XPW Remixed commissioner - *HIS* XPW
Remixed commissioner! Rob Black gave Muldoon his chance to play ball with the big boys, now he’s going to have to learn like the others before him -
DON’T CROSS THE BOSS! As he speaks, you see Black Army demons and affiliates like Dean Ambrose, Snuff, Onita, Jun Kasai & reigning KotDM champion
KILO have surrounded ringside - and are closing in on Muldoon… but as the Commissioner stoically reiterates - it’s Wild West, fastest gun, everyman
for himself rules these days. And Muldoon knows enough disgruntled soldiers to form a wall around the Black Army…
Cue maniacal Death Match run-in that is part Xtreme entertainment/ part Roman armies clashing… Danny Havoc! Drake Younger! The Original SHEIK!
Hakushi! John Morrison! Finally, the erratic loose cannon (stubbornly fan-favorite) and NEW KotDM #1 contender Sami Callihan runs in to put the
final exclamation point on Kilo's head! Rob Black and his army are forced to retreat from the ring like cockroaches scurrying from the light!
William Muldoon is the Elliot Ness of XPW Remixed - and tonight, he names the special referee for the main event title match!)
Video replay of the Tag Team co-main event from XPW TV Episode #52: Thesz vs. Santel… in that match, Mil Mascaras was attacked by a mystery
assailant dressed in black who bashed him in the shoulder/arm/back area with a metal pipe… that masked assailant was none other than RICARDO
RODRIGUEZ on behalf of his benefactor - and Mascaras’ own blood nephew - ALBERTO DEL RIO!
In a shocking, cold video tape confessional/Cartel leader death threat, Del Rio explained his motivations and explains the evil reasoning behind his
desire to rid the fantasy wrestling world of the Mascaras bloodline forever! Del Rio’s promo includes a tinge of the “unmasked versus masked”
ideologies of Lucha Libre and how that ultimately drove this wedge between family… Mil Mascaras himself (still recuperating from the illegal pipe
shot) could not be reached for comment, but it said to be shocked and humiliated beyond compare.
[color=gold]ALBERTO DEL RIO: It is a very important moment for my country not only for my family… Lucha Libre is treated as a religion in
Replay of the Olympia breakdown between Muldoon & Ciampa, and the juxtaposition of John Cena through the involvement of Alexxis Nevaeh (who Cena has
teamed with once before in XPW Remixed competition - see XPW Online #22)… tonight - freshly minted heel Tommaso Ciampa gets a few brief pre-match
words to put over his new mission statement - he disses Muldoon’s Olympia, says he found a *better* camp to train with, and says tonight is the
beginning of a new era for Tommaso Ciampa! He then goes out to have a good, solid match with Superman John Cena who none the less has his way with
Ciampa like he had the Miz, Dolph Ziggler and other real-world 2nd tier superstars of their time who are just testing the main event waters… Ciampa
puts up a fight, but is clearly overmatched… until the run-in interference of…
GUNNER & DARLIN!!
Vicious, steel chair assault on Cena (aided by Jessica Darlin ass teases to the ref for distraction purposes)… Gunner unleashes an F5 into the metal
ringpost (ala Lesnar to Cena 2003) and another onto the exposed concrete floor. Cena is crushed; left twitching and convulsing on the floor… Gunner
& Darlin leer menacingly and slink backstage, content in seeking retribution against Cena for his white-knight antics (see XPW TV Episode #52)… and
Tommaso Ciampa embarks on the first victory in what he has promised will be a LONG winning streak… but what is his mystery training camp
Winner (by count-out): TOMMASO CIAMPA

Commissioner Muldoon races onto the scene to check on a stretcher-bound John Cena as he's wheeled into an ambulance... Muldoon curses the

(the following highlights are played in quick succession building towards the match payoff at the end)
** London & Kendrick def. Generation ME in an impromptu tag team masterpiece ** (The excellence in London & Kendrick’s victory was then answered in a friendly respect/let’s make a classic/I’m still better than you-fashion
** Motor City Machine Guns promo ** (another quick tag team excursion as fans salivate at the thought of another fantasy wrestling "dream match" (MCMG vs London & Kendrick)... MCMG
are here tonight to salute the spirit of competition in XPW Remixed - and for their manager/agent PAUL BOWSER still recuperating from the heinous
assault perpetrated against him by Tazz… suddenly the MCMG too are interrupted… by… ) -
** Fabulous Kangaroos “def.” MCMG ** (Manager Wild Red Berry duels with MCMG briefly on the mic over the dominance of his camp in tag team wrestling - which segues to an attack from
the FabKangs when MCMG have their backs turned… FabKangs quickly hit their version of the DWI finish to roll the MCMG out of competition… (meanwhile
GenME have reappeared to brawl with London & Kendrick out of the picture)... the FabKangs then have some harsh words for their current storyline foes
(and XPW Remixed tag team champions) the DUDLEY BOYZ! But when their angry rants are finally answered head-on by the champs themselves… the FabKangs
don’t want any! They slide from the ring and easily relinquish it to the Dudley Boyz…)
** MATCH SEGUE **
** XPW Remixed Tag Team titles **
DUDLEY BOYZ & MILDRED BURKE (w/ Rowdy Ronda Rousey)
THE USO’s & TAMINA (w/ Ad Santel)
Go-home promo from the Dudley Boyz at the height of their fan respect and hardcore credibility… they praise the work rate, competition and talent
level of XPW Remixed - building themselves up in return for being the champions of said division - and TESTIFY to that! Then they are answered by
former XPW World title contender (and head of the Cali Cripplers stable) AD SANTEL… he disagrees with the Dudz and calls them barbarians, about to be
turned away at the gate by Santel’s chief tag team components - and #1 contenders - THE USO’s! Then the fans will get to witness a *true* wrestling
masterpiece at “The 18th Letter” when his new tag team champions the Uso’s will defend against Mr. Berry and his gentleman’s tandem of the Fabulous
Kangaroos! The challenge is accepted by the Dudz (cuz they’re fighting champions) - and XPW Commissioner William Muldoon appears with a mic to make
it official... but he raises the stakes of the ante, as only the "Solid Man" can... Enter MILDRED BURKE & ROWDY RONDA ROUSEY!
Mildred Burke is the in-ring answer to Tamina - who the Dudley Boyz refuse to manhandle (to cement their “men of honor” blue collar image)… not only
does Burke do her duty by squashing Tamina - she doesn’t shy away from engaging the Uso brothers either… and while she does briefly play “baby face
in peril” to the brothers after a heel-ish double team combination - she ultimately fights back to land a flying knee drop to Jey’s head from the top
rope… Ad Santel tries getting involved - ROWDY RONDA ROUSEY snaps an armbar on him! And the Dudley Boyz use expert tag team chemistry to slay the
Uso’s with a real life 3D… but of course Wild Red Berry and his men lead an immediate ambush charge… this time it’s anticipated, and the Dudley Boy
cut the FabKangs off at the pass! Once more the Kangaroos quickly retreat from action, only to watch in horror and visible fear as the enraged Dudley
Boyz take their frustration out on the Uso’s and 3D them through Tables! Dudley Boyz finish the job on the mic by acknowledging their upcoming title
defense against the FabKangs at “The 18th Letter”… and making it a “TABLES MATCH!” The FabKangs will taste sweet wooden retribution!! Later on,
we'd get a quick video vignette of another wrestling *hit* performed in the locker room - this one upon AD SANTEL! Santel has been subject of a
bloody assassination attempt that left his head dunked in cement! That's the end of Santel's run in XPW Remixed - and he was rubbed out
in the same Mexican gangbang fashion that harkens back to former student BBoy! A nod to storyline continuity, and one final shot from the exiled BBoy
who was banned from XPW Remixed by Ad Santel and a crooked brass knuckles shot (see XPW Remixed presents "Night of Champions II")...
[color=gold]MSD assumes ring announcer duties (ala Jeremy Borash) and performs the main event World title match intro. Enter Muldoon‘s hand-picked
choice for Special Referee duties tonight… ROCKY MARCIANO!! Crowd goes ballistic for his walk out - but quickly darkens when Taz is the next
entrant. He has some chilling words for Thesz & Marciano as he squares up in the ring -“Win if you can! Survive if I let you!“ Finally Thesz enters
last and gets rolls of streamers criss crossed across the ring from the dedicated fan base of MMA connoisseurs. Just the visual of these two great
champions (one respectable and “mainstream” - the other thuggish and “underground”) standing across from each other in the ring - complete with Taz
classic arms fold pose - is chill inducing. Big time MMA announcer intros and referee directions, with Thesz & Taz refusing to shake hands…
anticipation hangs heavy in the air for this fantasy wrestling classic… The bell rings and both men circle each other warily - hesitant to commit…
finally they lock up and the height disparity is obvious (with Taz being the shorter of the two). Yet Taz weighed in tonight 15 pounds heavier than
Thesz for this heavyweight bout. They lock up again, but this time the taller and leaner Thesz pushes Taz to the corner. Taz dodges and gets in a few
rights on Thesz, but Thesz covers up and counters with a takedown attempt that succeeds. Taz pulls guard and immediately goes for a kimura, but Thesz
maneuvers out. The champ going for some wear down/submission holds but can’t keep Taz down (referred to as a “barrel with arms” on commentary)… in
XPW Remixed there are parallels drawn between Tazz’ stocky, low center of gravity style that can be traced to Greg Valentine all the way back to the
Strangler Lewis textbook of defensive wrestling. Taz with a drop toe hold on Thesz and ratchets up the violence level with a series of (“illegal” by
MMA standard) knees to the back of the head. Rocky Marciano warns Taz a few times (and gets ice cold glares in return) but doesn’t interject himself
too much. He lets the rasslers handle their business. Taz earns a few 2 counts but nothing permanent - so he settles on targeting the
already-weakened arm of Lou Thesz. Commentators cover the “dream turned nightmare” alliance of Taz & Samoa Joe and how they performed a series of
wrestling “hits” to position themselves as dual #1 contenders… Thesz finally fights back with some jabs and chops, but eats a big kick to the head in
response. Taz taunts Thesz and *SLAPS* his face!
They wind up outside the ring where Taz sends Lou shoulder first into the steel steps. Taz is anxious to secure arm submissions, but Thesz keeps
finding a way to counter out. Finally Lou catches him with a Thesz press that gets a close fall. Taz immediately clobbers Thesz and goes into
confrontation mode with Rocky - claiming it a fast count. Rocky doesn’t back down - but won’t press his authority further either. Striker discusses
the legend of Taz choking out UFC fighter Paul “the Polar Bear” Varelans in ECW. The crowd has been chanting “this is wrestling!” but now rallies
behind the champ with cries of “LOU! LOU!” - and Thesz uses the momentum to fight back. Leg and thigh kicks keep Taz at bay and set up the shoot -
double leg takedown from Thesz and he’s looking for the STF! Taz scrambles to his feet in another exchange that leads to a thunderous counter
POWERBOMB from Thesz! Story of the match has been the gradual wearing-down of the racehorse Thesz by his frenetic championship schedule - and host of
sneak attacks and *hits* he’s suffered in recent weeks. We enter the end game with a few double-KO spots and storyline referee interactions with
Rocky Marciano (he’s coming back to Brockton September 2012!) With tensions in the match as high as they’ll get - we finally get the emergence of
Samoa Joe right before commercial break. What are his intentions?? Clearly they are to pull up a chair and watch from ringside - “scouting” his
future opponent at “The 18th Letter”. Instead it sets off a firestorm of activity that results in Commissioner Muldoon himself coming out to ringside
as well (to make sure Samoa Joe adheres to his stipulation or strip him of his #1 contender ship). The action is fast and furious in the ring with a
series of mat holds, counters and reversals that culminates with Taz locking in a rear naked choke on Thesz! It looks dangerously close to the end
for Thesz, until he manages to *barely* get a foot under the rope to force a break. A “force a break” special referee Rocky Marciano does - literally
PRYING Taz off Lou’s body! Of course this infuriates both Taz AND Samoa Joe (who rises from his chair at ringside) and they yell profanities at
Rocky. Taz PUSHES Rocky! Then he PUSHES him again! Finally Rocky dusts off his referee stripes and SHOVES Taz back! Crowd loves it - but Taz
stumbles right back into Thesz’ grip! But the XPW champion *still* can’t lock in his STF finisher - and after a series of quick and exciting
counters/reversals - Taz rolls through into the TAZMISSION! He has Thesz in one of the most dangerous choke holds in fantasy wrestling history!
Thesz has to move quickly or die a fast death and runs up the turnbuckle pads defensively - flopping over on top of Taz, while still locked in the
Tazmission (ala Roddy Piper/Bret Hart WM9)… 1!.. 2!.. 3!! Rocky Marciano counts a pinfall! The bell rings! Taz finally releases the hold and
Thesz dead body flops lifelessly from his grip! There is chaos, confusion, lots of yelling and XPW remixed officials scurrying about at ringside.
Commissioner Muldoon gets the official word from referee Rocky Marciano. Thesz’ corner men are tending to the champion, and slowly bringing him back
to consciousness. Finally the announcement is made…
Winner via pinfall (and STILL XPW World champion): LOU THESZ!!
Announcement leads to a near-riot in the arena - think Strikeforce in Nashville TN 2010. An already irate Taz & Samoa Joe help turn the place
into a chair-throwing madhouse with that announcement. In the end - Rocky Marciano takes a SWING at Joe (doesn‘t connect - but forces Joe to retreat
once and for all)!! But Taz winds up locking William Muldoon in the Tazmission for GOOD! Much like Paul Bowser and others before him, Muldoon is
choked OUT by Taz to end the show! Paramedics are brought in to tend to him -much like Cena already tonight - as a wary, glassy-eyed Thesz (clutching
his World title like it might slip from his fingers) is stared down by Samoa Joe from on the entrance ramp - his eyes filled with hatred, and a finger
cut motion across his throat…
Samoa Joe vs Lou Thesz for the World title @ "The 18th Letter"!

XPW TV Episode #54
”A Word From the Company” (Intro)
Ed “Strangler” Lewis welcomes viewers to the show… Discloses the attack upon Commissioner Muldoon has garnered fines from the state athletic
commission and as a result Mr Lewis has no recourse but to *BAN* Taz from XPW World title contendership. Also - for his complicity in the attack upon
XPW Remixed officials - current #1 contender Samoa Joe must DEFEND that privilege tonight in a match against confirmed ratings draw (and somebody with
a bone to pick with Joe over past attacks) - THE MIZ (2011)!! We may see a NEW #1 contender for the XPW World title by the end of the night! PLUS!
John Cena addresses his attack by Gunner last Episode! XPW Remixed woman’s champion Trish Stratus is in the house! And the champ Lou Thesz WILL be
in action tonight! Stay tuned!
** CUT TO VIDEO INTRO **
Cut to the in-studio announce team for the evening:
Gordon Solie & Matt Striker
Dark reflections are the theme of the night, as XPW Remixed takes a twisted look back at wrestling history “Alice through the looking glass”-style.
Fans of the genre will be pleased to find familiar scenarios - but shall sneer disapprovingly at the perverted and twisted fashion they appear. For
not only do the fans, writers and wrestlers seek Retribution - the world seeks it upon XPW Remixed. The attack on Commissioner William Muldoon may
have been the breaking point in an all-out war against filth and decency that is slowly destroying the company from within. Teetering on the brink of
one more lawsuit meaning financial devastation. Now, drastic measures must be taken to keep the company afloat - keep the championship belt in its
grasp - and move forward to “The 18th Letter”!
Fallout from the attack on Commissioner Muldoon and champion Lou Thesz’ controversial victory over Taz. John Cena responds to the attack last week
that sent him to a local area hospital, XPW Remixed tag team champions the DUDLEY BOYZ will be in action, and a “Fatal 4-Way” Xtreme Rulez Death
Match! All that and more! Stay tuned!!
I am a killer
I have a heart that merely beats
JOHN MORRISON vs DEAN AMBROSE
vs HAKUSHI (Triple Threat TV Title #1 Contender match)
Match made in response to William Muldoon’s carefully tracked TV title ranking system being torn asunder with his attack. Dean Ambrose has been
clamoring for a title shot ever since becoming their figurehead (or “hood ornament on the Black Army Bentley” as Jack Pfefer was once overheard to
say) and this is the best Strangler Lewis is giving him tonight. #1 free agent acquisition John Morrison has constructed a fantasy wrestling rivalry
for the ages with Hakushi (1995) that climaxes with this match tonight. Both are able to cooperate enough to unleash a series of unique double team
moves on Ambrose (who continues to gain massive heel heat from the crowd) - before ultimately dissolving their partnership mid-match and upping each
other move-for-highflying-daredevil-move. Closest finish of the night sees Ambrose clobbering both guys with a chair and nearly getting the win, but
winds up getting a BLAST of black mist to the face from Hakushi in return! The Japanese ninja assassin and American parkour master go at it again
until a crucial crash and burn from Hakushi ends their tour deforce. Quick moveset + starship pain on Dean Ambrose = John Morrison writing fantasy
wrestling history @ “The 18th Letter” when he takes on RVD for the XPW TV title!!
Winner (and #1 contender): JOHN MORRISON
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
XPW Remixed TV champion RVD with a few words with MSD in the back - but they're interrupted by Jinder Mahal who mockingly addresses
Muldoon's incapacitation. Mahal completely rains on RVD & MSD's pot-themed party by informing them a legal suit has officially been filed
by Mahal - and since Muldoon isn't around to block it now - RVD must consent to a PED-test... or be stripped of his title!!! Wow. Bummer
Strangler Lewis & Toots Mondt come face to face - and this time Ed Lewis is in full control. He was skeptical that Black’s ratings ploy on Episode
#50 would work, but remembered even NWA (the rap band) went platinum with no radio play. But now THIS - slaps a folder of paperwork in Mondt’s hands
- another lawsuit; this one civil! Protesters are demanding the removal of Rob Black from his position! Lewis is feeling the pressure and says Rob
Black needs to step down effectively immediately - and Toots Mondt is the guy that has to deliver the message! See it be done! Lewis storms off to
leave Mondt thumbing stoically through the legal paperwork - before barking at his henchmen Dino Bravo & Dick Shikat to mount up.

TOMMASO CIAMPA versus HUMAN TORNADO
New look Tommaso Ciampa continues to impressive, and has a short picture-in-picture promo hyping up that new *mystery* team he trains with (in
defiance of his original camp Olympia). He proves tonight he is no joke - playing straight man to Human Tornado’s antics before stone cold seriously
dismantling him in action. Tommaso wins the match clean with Project Ciampa in what some consider a mild upset over the former XPW Boston #1
contender. Tommaso remains undefeated since returning to action under new tutelage.
Winner: TOMMASO CIAMPA

** BACKSTAGE VIGNETTE **
Dean Ambrose & Atsushi Onita are arguing loudly once more - with Ambrose blaming Onita for his earlier loss (because Onita wasn't there to
interfere). Ambrose threatens to take care of Onita like he did Kevin Sullivan - but Onita alludes to some Yakuza ties that keep him firmly
entrenched in the Black Army. Rob Black tries to appease both men by informing them that Dean Ambrose has been signed to take out Hakushi @ "The
18th Letter" in a Falls Count Anywhere match... with Onita in his corner! What!?! Ambrose & Onita are outraged! But Rob Black makes them
"hug it out" in a twisted version of Kane/Daniel Bryan. Suddenly they are all interrupted on a bootleg video feed by SAMI CALLIHAN (big
pop)! More creepiness from KotDM #1 contender Sami Callihan… the “New Horror” is turning the tables on champion KILO by engaging in psychological
warfare… here Sami taunts Kilo from the darkness of a boiler room somewhere, and teases a mystery benefactor who will be the key to Callihan’s
victory at “The 18th Letter”… is he talking mystic mumbo jumbo again, like his previous “ghost” talk (that turned out to be Horror movie attacks from
a masked Thumbtack Jack)? Or is Callihan speaking literally? Either way, it’s unnerving the already-borderline insanely paranoid Rob Black and the
coked-up monster Kilo…
DANNY HAVOC vs THE SHEIK vs SNUFF
vs CRAZY MONKEY ("Fatal 4-Way Death Match"
Trademark XPW Remixed “all hell breaks loose” segment. Wild anarchy from all 4 men with serious grudges to bear. Havoc fights tonight in honor of
Thumbtack Jack (former fantasy wrestling partner in XPW Remixed canon) who was retired by KotDM champion (and Black Army affiliate) KILO. The two
monsters Sheik & Snuff wind up brawling into the concession area and out of the picture (but not before a scorching Sheik fireball scatters spectators
in a 10 yard radius). Crazy Monkey (brainwashed Black Army goon) and Havoc (Cylinder Iowa’s Death Match icon) are about to put the exclamation point
on the entire affair with a complicated and deadly bump (that the bloodthirsty crowd is frothing for in anticipation)… when we get an interruption
from... protesters (?!?)
That’s right - after tinkering with the act in the under card portions of our events - Sandman and Necro Butcher finally bring their shtick to the
main stage. This is a full-on protest/demonstration with organizers, picketers with signs and chants (led by Sandman in the front with bullhorn,
Kendo stick & beer cans in his pockets). They officially shut down the match - stifle the final bump (so we never see it) - and call an official
protest. This is no “Fatal 4 Way” or “Death Match” because nobody ever DIES! Therefore they are SUING XPW Remixed for false advertising, emotional
duress and unsafe work environments! And they aim to sue all the spectators that engage in these claims as well! BOOOOO! Cop-calling snitches!
These are the guys that got New Jack tossed in the can last week! They’re slowly killing the XPW Remixed death match division with their legal
Winner: NONE (no finish)

** BACKSTAGE INTERLUDE **
Cameras catch the tail-end of Mondt informing Rob Black that the legal pressure XPW Remixed is facing requires Black to vacate his post. Of course
Rob Black flies off the handle, as all his paranoid suspicions have been confirmed - Lewis & Mondt are trying to elbow him out of the GDT Inc
monopoly!! But Mondt insists that’s no true and that they can create a Rob Feinstein/ROH situation where Rob Black steps out of the public eye until
the heat blows over. All they need is somebody to stand in Black’s place and hold down his company 1/3rd… Jack Pfefer immediately speaks up. That
would be him. Rob Black is stunned into silence. Everybody is against him…
XPW Remixed Woman's champion Trish Stratus on commentary. Awesome Kong enters last and her victory is reminiscent of Andre the Giant or
Haystacks Calhoun in their heyday - mixed with a little Goldberg and sprinkled with a dash of Ryback. She dominates all 3 opponents in devestating
fashion (one of which is actually a small male!) while Stratus discusses her, Sable and the XPW Woman's title on commentary. Trish readily
admits this will be the toughest challenge of her fantasy wrestling career. Kong dominates and looks to step to Trish postmatch (who stands right up
to her) - but Kong just breaks down into maniacal laughter and slinks away... Trish vs Kong II @ "The 18th Letter"!
Starts with “viva la Revolution” promo from Shane (w/ Lizzy) & PtP - touting their beat down on Sheamus and gauntlet match rules @ “The 18th Letter”…
ends with Sheamus admitting he must go into a PPV war alone - but tonight, he brought some allies for the battle - and introducing his surprise tag
team partners for the night (reigning XPW Remixed tag team champions) THE DUDLEY BOYZ. Results are academic - Shane Douglas spends most of his time
cowering away from and avoiding Sheamus… Kaos gets his custom-made “I BEAT AUSTIN ARIES” T-Shirt ripped off his body and hit with a
“WHASSSUUUPPP!?!?” head butt (all while still wearing his imposter “World Champion Wrestling Man” title belt) - and Titus O’Neil eats a Brogue Kick
into a Dudley Death Drop for the pin.
Winners: SHEAMUS & DUDLEY BOYZ
It’s a feel good moment - until a wild brawl breaks out post match and the FABULOUS KANGAROOS (w/ manager Wild Red Berry) show up to jump the
Dudley Boyz. Segments ends with Shane, Kaos & Titus dominating Sheamus (as they promise to do again at the PPV) - and the muthaphuckkin Dudley Boyz
being driven through their own tables by the FabKangs! Costello & Heffernan take turns posing with the XPW title belts (“THEIR championship belts!”)
over the Dudz fallen body.
FabKangs vs Dudz @ "The 18th Letter"
for the XPW Remixed tag team titles!!

MSD is having a few words with XPW Remixed World champion Lou Thesz about the events of the night - impending lawsuits - and Joe's match
tonight against Miz that might result in a new #1 contender... when XPW Remixed VP Toots Mondt saunters into the picture. He tries to intimidate the
champ, but Thesz still holds all the cards and Mondt' company is falling down around him. Using the almighty power of fan persuasion in his
favor, Thesz even tries to cajole Toots Mondt HIMSELF into accepting a match against Thesz tonight! But instead - the best he gets is a shot against
Mondt's #1 bonebreaker Dino Bravo TONIGHT in a non-title match!
This backstage segment is a culmination of the Davis/Commissioner Muldoon issues and match (that also resulted in Davis being barred from the PPV as
referee as well) - and Rocky’s run-ins with upper XPW Remixed management and his own thirst for Retribution (for himself, his friends and his city).
Rocky’s in town for his historic 50th victory celebration and finally wants to end this age-old battle of “wrestler vs. boxer”. This is in response
to Danny (and agent Jack Pfefer)’s complaints that Muldoon cheated and used boxing in his wrestling match against Davis (see XPW TV Episode #53: Thesz
vs. Taz). Marciano can’t be bought, sold or bribed. He’s on the level - and he’s about to put the Black Army in their place. Rocky throws down the
gauntlet - has the sanctioning bodies approval - and Davis has no choice but to accept! Wrestler vs. Boxer! Dangerous Danny Davis vs. Rocky
Marciano! Only @ “The 18th Letter”!
Rocky Marciano vs. Dangerous Danny Davis (“All-Brockton Bedlam: Boxer vs. Wrestler match”)

"Pour out a little liquor"
** BACKSTAGE SKIT **
Brief “Boyz N the Hood”-styled vignette from the Movement (Rashad Cameron w/ Cryme Tyme, Michael Tarver & now the “Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes) on
some dirty, grimy city street corner somewhere. They are performing a mock eulogy for racist cracker William Muldoon’s commissioners career and
pouring out a little 40 oz liquor in memory. Bitter, sarcastic and disrespectful bile from all 5 men who have gripes with “whitey” for holding them
** CUT **
** BACKSTAGE VIGNETTE **
2nd creepy backstage vignette from Sami Callihan - taunting Kilo and promising some mysterious ace in the hole… more cryptic clues that leave Rob
Black & Kilo erupting with fury. Kilo is now on a coked-up rampage through the backlots of the building trying to find Sami Callihan…
A segment that puts over cut matches in fast, MTV-styled, video hype clips - usually set to some kind of heavy metal or Hip Hop background music..
this is the kind of stuff that would have appeared on the now-dormant XPW Online, or within the 3rd hour of XPW TV that has been lost...
Damien Sandow (w/ Berry) def. Weedman (Priceless opening match monologue from Sandow before his victory).
Matt Morgan (w/ Buddy Rogers) def. Snuff (Backstage Brawl) (Still injured from his earlier match - Snuff is set upon in the locker room by an enraged Matt Morgan - he and Rogers taking their anger out on
anybody in their way… until they come face to face with MARK HENRY!! The World’s Strongest Man stops “The Blueprint” in his tracks - and a tense
stare down ensues… Mark Henry dares Morgan to a match at “The 18th Letter” - and Buddy Rogers accepts on his behalf!)
Heath Slater/ Honky Tonk Man & PG-13 def. Colt Cabana/Ruckus/Human Tornado
[I](Rematch of their comedic barn-burner from last week, and a parody that lampoons other companies and their weak attempts at a Trios tourney. The
musically-impaired odd couple of HTM/Slater & PG13 get the amazing handicap upset and display light shades of the Kane/Daniel Bryan/“Hug it Out“
Gorgeous George & David Otunga battle to a double-count out (w/ GG as special referee) (Both wrestlers tried hitting on GG during the match to hilarious results - but the new owner of ALL the Focus trademarks and rights wound up
spurring both and counting them both out after double-low blows… storyline is reminiscent of a slightly more- Xtreme version of the AJ/Punk/Bryan
ménage’ a trois..)
LOD (Hawk & Animal) brawl with the Pitbulls (reminiscent of the chaotic Pitbulls run-in against the West Side NGZ in XPW Original (see MSD recaps XPW TV Season One Episode #3 NOW for full
details!) - the LOD and Pitbulls literally tear down the set - including the giant metal letters spelling out “XPW” on the entrance ramp… it
necessitates the following match be contested under near-war zone standards while the mess is cleaned up..)
** Dark Match Main Event **
MCMG & Kendrick/London battle to a DRAW (Their tag team wrestling masterpiece is ruined by the run-in of a jealous, vindictive GenerationME team - outraged at being upstaged by the
veteran duos… GenME leaves both teams lying to huge boos…)
Backstage correspondent MSD is setting up a promo piece with none other than former XPW Remixed champion Bruno Sammartino (to be part of the Thesz/Joe
judges committee) - when an irate TAZ storms the set! The bully (who spent all night fuming and ranting about being banned from World title
contendership but couldn’t get an audience with anybody in management) takes his frustrations out on MSD instead - grabbing and shaking him in a fit
of anger. Brief vignettes have played all night of Taz on his rampage through the XPW Remixed backstage area. Taz cuts a promo where he says he’s
happy about what he did to Commissioner Muldoon - and that just sends Bruno Sammartino into a fury. Just like the feud that spawned between
Sammartino and Randy Savage after Savage crushed Ricky Steamboat’s larynx with a ring bell - Sammartino is so enraged and disgusted by Taz proclaiming
his joy over his criminal actions - that he ATTACKS HIM! Sammartino & Taz are going at it in the backstage area!! Caught by surprise to begin with,
Taz finally tucks tails and flees - leaving a raging Sammartino behind. MSD gets a few words from the Italian Strongman - who announces his COMEBACK
and declares his intention to END the “path of rage” when he challenges Taz one-on-one @ “The 18th Letter”!! WHAT!?! This is *HUGE* breaking
THE MESSIAH versus ALBERTO DEL RIO (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez)
Magnificent, Ricardo Rodriguez-assisted entrance from Del Rio. Quick promo reiterating his motives for having uncle Mil Mascaras attacked and
disabled (see XPW TV Episode #52). Del Rio is interrupted by the theme song for XPW Original homebrewed superstar MESSIAH - who challenges him to a
match. Messiah holds his own and gets off a bevy of crowd pleasing moves - but the ringside presence of Ricardo Rodriguez is enough to turn the tide
and Messiah winds up caught in a vicious arm bar for the tap-out. Rodriguez joyously announces Del Rio’s victory, and Alberto is about to zero in on
Messiah’s arm again - just out of spite. Until he is cut off by his uncle MIL MASCARAS on the video wall. Quick, but intense monologue from Mascaras
that starts in Spanish but finishes in English. Heavy duty honor, respect and holy Lucha Libre bloodlines at stake. Mascaras accepts Del Rio’s
challenge for “The 18th Letter” and promises retribution of his own…
Winner (by submission): ALBERTO DEL RIO
Mil Mascaras promises retribution @ "The 18th Letter"!
XPW Remixed champion Lou Thesz on commentary - who discusses the exciting potential of facing Miz in a star-studded PPV match. This match between Joe
& Miz was made as a political “FU” from Strangler Lewis to his VP Toots Mondt (for Mondt issuing a series of “hits” performed by Joe & Taz unbeknownst
to the Strangler). In earlier vignettes Joe already expressed his outrage at his #1 contendership being put in flux at the last moment in this match
- while Miz performed admirably as the XPW Remixed baby face with enough stats and pizzazz to back his claims as “highest rated champion in XPW
Remixed history” (referring to his 2 legendary reigns as TV champion). In action, Miz assumes a sort of plucky underdog face character - something he
really started tweaking during his feud with Shane Douglas. But Samoa Joe is a demolition machine and winds up dismantling Miz with shoot strikes and
stiff suplexes. Thesz discusses the crime wave of terror orchestrated by Joe & Taz and how he stands as the last of the old guard not ready to
relinquish their spots to thugs who don't deserve it. A last-ditch SCF-attempt from Miz is countered into a surprise Kokina clutch by Joe and
that’s it. Miz frantically taps for breath as Joe exerts his dominance and reclaims his #1 Contenders spot - with momentum. Staredown with Thesz
from the ring but that's as far as it goes.
Winner (by submission): SAMOA JOE

Black Army president Rob Black has been driven near-mad by the events of the night, but his confidant Jack Pfefer consoles him. He has convinced
Black it *IS* best for him to step back for a while and let Pfefer himself control the position. Until the lawsuits, heat and other troubles boil
over. Rob Black reluctantly leaves the building (and the keys to the Black Army in Pfefer's hands) - but as an aside as he leaves the building,
indicates he has one final figurative "mail bomb" to set off at "The 18th Letter" before he goes...
John Cena addresses the wave of evil overtaking XPW Remixed - allies he's lost - personal battles he wages - and the vicious attack he
suffered at the hands of Gunner (w/ Darlin) on XPW TV Episode #53... @ "The 18th Letter" Cena seeks retribution, not only for himself - but
for the heroes of light who continue to RISE ABOVE HATE despite all obstacles... but Cena won't be alone. He's bringing Olympia ace,
former XPW Remixed Woman's champion, and his main New England homegirl Alexxis Nevaeh to watch his back against that skank Jessica Darlin!

Final sketch in Sami Callihan’s creepy crusade to psyche out Kilo… his cryptic clues have led Kilo to a darkened warehouse area where apparently
large (and scary, in the shadows) prehistoric relics are awaiting show (big wooly mammoths, saber-tooth tigers, like a dark Natural History exhibit)…
the coked-up and enraged Kilo is on a tear looking for Sami - until one of the exhibits seemingly comes to LIFE and attacks Kilo! What the!?!? Wait!
That’s no prehistoric caveman exhibit! That’s the real live FRENCH ANGEL in the flesh! Kilo thought he finished the French Angel in an “Ambulance
Match” (see “Give Me Liberty or Death”) - but the Angel is back to seek retribution! Finally Kilo has fear in his eyes and is forced to retreat from
the wild animal! Sami Callihan laughs and cackles like a maniacal genius who just strung together a pitbull ambush! Sami Callihan will see Kilo @
“The 18th Letter” - with ferocious reinforcements! Think George “the Animal” Steele on acid teaming up with bizarro-world Ricky Steamboat @ WMIII!
Has Kilo finally met his match?!?!
French Angel is back for Retribution against KILO!!
Legendary Boston-area promoter and key manager of such fantasy names as John Cena and the MCMG - PAUL BOWSER is back! He has some brief words for
XPW Remixed in response to his own attack, as well as the one suffered by Muldoon and other victims of the Black Army crime wave. A BIG TIME
announcement Paul Bowser is saving just for "The 18th Letter"... TUNE IN, you WON'T want to miss this bombshell announcement!!

LOU THESZ versus DINO BRAVO (w/ Dick Shikat) (Non-Title Match)
Good “strength versus science” display from the two men, with Thesz really showing off his skill. But the story of the match is Lou’s gradual wear
down and accumulation of injuries suffered in the build to this match - that is punctuated by a big Dino Bravo bear hug. Dick Shikat the stoic German
shooter watches from ringside, but can’t help interfere when Bravo comes out on the losing end of Thesz’ finishing sequence of maneuvers. As Thesz is
slapping on the STF to Bravo, Shikat rushes the ring and stomps the champion out - instant DQ. But Bravo & Shikat don’t care - they’re bone breakers.
They’re here to do a number on the champ…
Winner (by DQ): LOU THESZ
Bravo & Shikat are stretching the champ - when finally the Shooters Club make their heroic crowd pleasing run in! Dan “the Beast” Severn with
suplexes galore! Masahiko Kimura with the judo takedowns! Drake Younger with the Kendo stick! They drive away the bad guys in an all out brawl…
but they forget about Samoa Joe! He winds up sneaking on a worn Lou Thesz from the rear and LOCKING IN HIS KOKINA CLUTCH! In a repeat of Lou’s
near-fatal encounter with Taz last episode - Joe chokes Thesz OUT to end the show! It takes waves of security to pry him off and when he does Thesz
is left unmoving. Joe holds the XPW World title aloft like it’s his already…
