Austin Carter (c) vs. Kaelan Laughlin

After a three-year journey full of hardships and setbacks, both professional and personal, Austin Carter, the hometown hero who debuted by winning the first match of Massacre's first relaunch episode, is finally the XWA World Television Champion. Against all odds, the WIndy City Daredevil dethroned Dave O'Connor, the man who had that title, and handed the Maniac his first loss in XWA. But Ozzo won't have long to rest on his laurels, because right before that match, the internationally-renowned Kaelan Laughlin pulled off a similar feat against Jace Albright, who'd gone undefeated for the entire first half of 2019. Now, the Irish Rose looks to repeat O'Connor's feat and win the TV title in her second XWA match.

Can the hometown hero make a successful first defense? Or will Kaelan bring yet another title change? Find out in our main event!

OOC: I didn't really have time to code it. I'm sorry this is a crap shoot.

The action far in XWA has been hot. Some hard fought battles that have entertained the fans in attendance for tonight’s show. They don’t seem to be tiring out at all as the lights flash and switch to the commentator table

Sanction: “Ladies and Gentleman Welcome back to XWA Massacre. Tonight has been one hell of a night, and I couldn’t think of a better way to cap things off than with tonight’s Main Event!”

Tempest: “I’d have to agree with you. Last show we saw Austin Carter defy all odds and beat the Undefeated Dave O’Connor to become the XWA World Television Champion and it was quite a sight to see. He fought so many battles to get to where he is right now in XWA and I don’t see him looking to be dethroned so quickly and easily.

Sanction: “Yeah but you can’t count out his opponent here tonight. Kaelan Laughlin an outsider to XWA but a renowned face known throughout the Wrestling world. Last show she took on Jace Albright and through a hard fought battle herself she gave Jace his first loss of 2019! This match is LOTR Finals material.”

Tempest: “Well we don’t have to wait because it’s a Quarterfinals match! Both of these stars know the stakes, they are both hungry for this opportunity, as far as I’m concerned they are on equal playing field and only one of them is going to be the Champion and moving on to the next round of the Lord of the Ring.”

Sanction: “Looks like we won’t have to wait much longer to find out which one it is.”

Tara: “This Match is Scheduled for One Fall and is A Lord of the Ring Quarterfinals Match for the XWA World Television Championship…”

The beginning beat to “Warrior” by Dead by April begins to play as Kaelan Laughlin appears from behind the curtain with a cheer to meet the ones coming from the crowd. She stands on the top of the ramp soaking up all the cheers before she begins to speed walk her way down the ramp.

Tara: “Introducing first the challenger from Belfast, Northern Ireland….KAELANNNNN…. LAUUUGHHHHLLLIIIINNNN”

Slapping fans hands as she goes. Kaelan stops at the bottom of the ramp and bounces on her feet before taking off at a run to slide under the ropes. Sliding into the ring and rising up off her knees, flipping her long hair back as she does. Walking to the ropes to lean over them and throw her hands in the air to pose before hopping off as the music fades out and she begins to pace and stretch getting ready for the match.

Tempest: “Kaelan for sure is ready for this challenge. She said on Social Media just after the match was announced that she is going to do in two matches what took Austin three years.”

Sanction: “Well that’s either confidence or arrogance showing from Kaelan but it isn’t unexpected for her to say something like that. She’s known well for it.”

Tempest: “I think she’s focused and knows what she wants to do here tonight.”

Sanction: “Wanting it is one thing and I think Austin Carter is going to have something to say about that..”

Blue lights flicker as the beginning of Citizen Erased by Muse begins to play through the sound systems. Smoke overwhelms the stage as the guitar riff in the intro of the song rings out. The camera’s pan to Austin Carter emerging from the bottom of the stage via the platform, as cheers from the crowd being to fill the arena. Carter steps out onto the stage, looking down at the title on his waist, he pats it for good luck. He then turns around so the crowd can see his backside, turning the title belt so that it’s in full view of the crowd. He brings his arms up, striking his chest twice. Afterwards, he spreads both his arms making peace signs with his hands, as if his body were a cross. HANA RAMIEREZ: From Chicago, Illinois, Weighing in at 213 lbs, He is the XWA WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION!... AUSTIN!!! CARTER!!! He turns back around to face the ring, turning the title along with himself as he proceeds to walk to the edge of the ring. He stops and begins to jump and shake his head and proceeds to walk to the steel steps and run up them. He then walks on the apron almost to the other turnbuckle and walks backwards, back to the other. He enters the ring climbing to the nearest turnbuckle, removing the belt from his waist. He lifts it high, drawing cheers from the crowd. His music fades as he jumps down and walks to the corner nearest the announce table, hopping on to sit on the turnbuckle as he waits for the start of the match.

Tempest: “This is Austin Carter’s first title defense. This match might be more important than winning the title”

Sanction: “You could argue that. The stakes are made even higher knowing that the winner of this advances in the Lord of the Ring tournament for a chance at an even bigger prize!”

Austin hands his belt to the referee after giving it one more meaningful look. Kaelan stays in her corner her eyes going from Austin to the belt. She nods her head as the ref holds the belt up high in the air before taking it over and handing it off and out of the ring. Kaelan calmly walks to the center of the ring and puts her fists up. Austin does the same and ref calls for the bell.

DING! DING! DING!!

The match starts and Kaelan comes out swinging from the start. Hammering away at Austin with rights and lefts. First targeting his head but Austin is smart he covers as he stumbles back a bit. Kaelan then switches to going for his stomach and repeats the punches until she backs him into the ropes. Wasting no time to grab him and Irish Whip him across the ring. He bounces off the other side and flies back towards Kaelan. She goes to clothesline him but Austin ducks under it and hits the ropes flying back towards Kaelan as she turns around Austin delivers a dropkick that sends Kaelan to the mat. She immediately picks herself back up for Austin to hit her with another dropkick. Kaelan stays down this time and Austin heads for the ropes and uses them as momentum as he bounces off to hit Kaelan with a charging 450 splash, but as he goes to land the move Kaelan puts her knees up and catches him in the stomach. Austin rolls on the ground in pain as Kaelan uses the extra seconds to catch her breath.

Sanction: “Austin Carter going for that 450 but Kaelan scouted it and countered it beautifully.”

Tempest: “Yeah but she’s wasting time right now on the recovery. Austin isn’t going to stay down for long and she needs to capitalize on this right now.”

Kaelan shakes off the cobwebs so to speak and gets back on her feet walking over to Austin. She delivers kick after kick to his midsection. Austin rolls over to protect his midsection and crawls towards the ropes but Kaelan stops him and bends down putting Austin into a Muta Lock submission hold that makes Austin reach for the ropes and scream out in pain. Kaelan wrenches it even tighter as Austin uses his free arm to desperately crawl the rest of the way to the bottom rope.

Tempest: “Kaelan locking that submission in early on. Trying to steal this one quickly but Austin isn’t giving up that easily.”

Sanction: “With everything he’s been through to get where he is now? Do you really expect him to?”

Tempest: “Not one bit. I think Kaelan is going to have to do a whole lot more to take that XWA World Television Championship.”

Back in the ring Austin is inches away from the ropes and instead of letting him reach there Kaelan lets go of the hold rolling to her feet. She goes to grab Austin’s legs to pull him back and he reaches up and before Kaelan can do anything about it he rolls her up into a pin as she struggles to kick out.

Kaelan manages to kick out. For a moment she’s stunned at the close call but Austin is to his feet and as Kaelan catches her breath Austin puts her into a Muta Lock of his own. The fans start cheering loudly and Kaelan is now the one yelling out in pain.

Sanction: “Austin answering with a Muta Lock of his own! Wow! These two are matching each other blow for blow.”

Tempest: “Austin showing Kaelan Hey I can do that too.”

Sanction: “The question is, Can Kaelan power out of this too?”

Kaelan is reaching for the ropes. They are mere inches out of her grasp. She’s yelling out in pain and as the ref asks her if she wants to give up she says no. She uses her arm and pulls herself closer to the ropes just as Austin wrenches the hold in even more. Kaelan punches the mat with her fist but doesn’t give up as she pulls herself one last final pull and gets to the bottom rope, grabbing it tightly. The referee forces Austin to break the hold which he does immediately. Kaelan uses the opportunity to dip out of the ring and give herself some space from Austin. The fans don’t seem to be happy as the ref tells Kaelan to get back in the ring. She rubs her neck and nods her head brushing the ref off. Austin shakes his head and runs to the ropes bouncing off of them before launching himself through the middle rope for a suicide dive sending both him and Kaelan to the floor. The fans erupt as both competitors lay on the ground.

Sanction: “Austin risking his own well being to pull off that dive right there. Taking out both him and Laughlin.”

Tempest: “He said he’d do whatever it takes, and he has shown time and time again he’s a true fighter. He’s not letting that title go without a fight, and it’s smart of him. Don’t give Kaelan any breathing room.”

The referee starts making the count.

1…

2…

3....

Austin stirs first and starts getting to his feet. Kaelan’s leg moves slightly.

4…

5…

Austin gets completely to his feet and stumbles a couple of steps before shaking it off. He looks from Kaelan to the ref. Kaelan starts to stir and pulls herself to an upright position but still stays on the ground.

6…

Tempest: “Come on Austin you gotta get back in the ring. Kaelan might just get counted out. A win is a win.”

Sanction: “I’m not sure that’s the way he wants to win.”

Austin walks over to the ring and rolls his body into the ring before back out. Just to break up the count. The ref yells for him to bring the action back into the ring. He shakes his head no and goes over to grab Kaelan up. He puts his arms around her in a bear hug and just as he’s about to suplex her Kaelan headbutts him in the face causing Austin to let her go and stumble backwards grabbing his head. The ref has been counting the entire time.

...4

5…

Sanction: “What an impressive Headbutt from Laughlin.”

Tempest: “I hear the Irish can be very hard headed Mark.”

Sanction: “You’re proud of that one aren’t you?”

Tempest: “Yes I am.”

Kaelan grabs Austin and slams his head into the ring apron. While the ref counts.

...7.

Kaelan rolls her eyes at the official as he tells her to get back in the ring. She does the same as Austin earlier and rolls into the ring only to roll back out to break up the count. She grabs a dazed and confused Austin by the arm and irish whips him into the barricade. The fans on the other side go nuts as Austin crumbles to the floor.

...3

Kaelan gets a running start and collides her knee into the side of Austin’s head as he sits up against the barricade. She wastes no time getting back to her feet and grabbing him up before tossing him back into the ring. Climbing back in herself and making a quick cover.

1..

2..

Thr-

Austin kicks out. Kaelan shakes her head and smiles before nodding her head. Austin isn’t giving up easy. Kaelan immediately grabs Austin and wraps him up in a bow and arrow submission she wrenches the hold in as Austin reaches for the ropes and you can hear him screaming at the ref he’s not giving up.

Tempest: “Kaelan is not letting up here.”

Sanction: “But Austin is taking everything she’s dishing out and having an answer for it. I wouldn’t count him out of this.”

Austin is close to the ropes and when he finally realizes it he grabs on tightly. The ref tells Kaelan to break the hold and she does but elbows Austin in the head as she does. She rolls away and rises to her feet. The ref backs her off of Austin as he’s still gripping the rope. She holds her hands up and backs away. Austin takes a few seconds to rise to his feet. Kaelan makes a march straight for Austin. He ducks her and Kaelan goes through the ropes. She stops herself from flying to the outside but as she turns around Austin grabs her head and delivers a snapmare sending Kaelan to the mat. When she lifts up Austin is already coming flying at her with a running knee that connects with the side of her head. Kaelan crumbles to the mat and Austin wastes no time in hitting the Air Ozzo (Standing Moonsault)

Sanction: “Austin looking to put Kaelan away right here with that Moonsault!”

Tempest: “Judging by the way Kaelan isn’t moving I say he just might have.”

Austin immediately covers Kaelan and the ref counts.

1..

2..

Thre-

At the last second Kaelan kicks out and the fans go nuts. They can’t believe it. Austin can’t believe it. Honestly Kaelan laying on the mat probably can’t believe she just kicked out of that. Austin wastes no time though in picking himself up and backing against the turnbuckle. He waits patiently for Kaelan to stir. She rises up just enough to be sitting on her knees when Austin comes running ready to hit his finisher the Finiscilo. Kaelan scouts it at the last second and drops down causing Austin’s leg to go between the second turnbuckle. Kaelan gets to her feet and walks over to catch Austin and deliver a swinging neckbreaker to drive him into the mat. She’s still not fully recovered from the shot to her head and it shows as she takes a few extra seconds to catch her breath.
Sanction: “Austin tried to end this match and Kaelan showed some great ring awareness keeping herself in this fight.”

Tempest: “Both competitors just not letting up. Showing they both know just what is on the line and neither one of them are willing to give up this fight. They both want it so bad and it’s showing in the ring right now.”

Kaelan picks Austin back up and lifts herself up prepared to deliver her Flying Fox finisher but just as she bounces off the turnbuckle Austin reverses it and sidewalk slams Kaelan right down to the mat. They both lay on the mat and Austin shakes it off before using the ropes to climb to his feet. He immediately climbs the ropes he stands on the top rope but Kaelan is to her feet by the time he gets there. Rather than jump down he does a diving crossbody off the top rope sending him and Kaelan to the mat but he recovers quickly and Kaelan scrambles to her feet just a half second later Austin wastes no time and grabs Kaelan and delivers The Windy City Thrill (Arm Trap Snap Swinging Neckbreaker)

Sanction: “The Windy City Thrill! That’s it! There’s no way Kaelan is kicking out of that!”

Tempest: “She fought hard to get here but Austin wasn’t going to let go of that title just after he got it so easily.”

Austin takes a moment to catch his breath before making the cover on Laughlin. The fans count with the ref.

1…

2…

Thre-

Kaelan kicks out at the last second. The fans explode. Austin can’t believe it again. Kaelan is not giving up. He puts his hands on his head and looks at the ref signaling it was three. The ref says Kaelan got the shoulder up.

Tempest: “Oh my god I can’t believe Kaelan kicked out of that!”

Sanction: “Austin can’t believe it either.”

Kaelan stirs a little and Austin shakes his head. He’s not done with this yet. He backs up again. Waiting for Kaelan to get up again. She eventually pulls herself up. Austin again lunges at her to hit his Finico! Finisher and she ducks it again but just crumbles to the mat. The ref checks to see if she’s out but Austin stops himself from going through the ropes. You can see he’s frustrated and he walks over to Laughlin as he reaches down to grab her Kaelan lunges up and delivers a hard right hook to the side of his head. He stumbles backwards and Kaelan rises quickly to her feet. Austin shakes off the hit and just as he comes back around on Kaelan she hits him with the From Belfast with Love(Superkick). Austin drops to the mat in a heap. Kaelan wastes no time in dropping down and wrapping his legs quickly up for The Irish Rose(Figure Four Cloverleaf) Submission finish. They’re in the center of the ring. Austin has no where to go.

Sanction: A From Belfast with Love straight into The Irish Rose. Wow! Kaelan is wasting no time here the way she’s mercilessly locked that hold in.”

Tempest: “Austin has nowhere to go! He just might have no choice but to tap here! Kaelan is pulling that hold tight! It’s not worth the Snap of something vital. No shame in tapping and living to fight another day.”

Sanction: “Austin fought for three years to get that XWA World Television Championship. He’s not letting it go that easily. He bled for that belt. I believe he’s willing to go through all the pain Kaelan can inflict if it means he stays champion and advances in this tournament.”

Tempest: “Kaelan has refused to stay down when Austin has thrown everything at her. I wouldn’t underestimate the pain she’s willing to inflict to advance and claim XWA Gold!”

In the ring there’s a struggle. Kaelan putting her hold in tighter as Austin screams out and refuses to tap. Reaching for the ropes that are way out of his reach. For a second you can see he’s contemplating tapping but just before his hand goes to do it he shakes his head and closes his hand. Shaking his fists the fans start clapping and cheering. He uses that and starts pulling both him and Kaelan towards the ropes. Kaelan shakes her head and starts trying to pull him back but Austin is stronger. He eventually drags them both to the ropes. Clinging for dear life the ref tells Kaelan to let go of the hold and she does shaking her head in disappointment. She rises to her feet and walks over to Austin to pull him back towards the center of the ring. She does and when she reaches for him again Austin rolls her up again, but Kaelan quickly reverses it into a bridged roll up. Austin’s legs struggle as the ref starts counting.

1..

2..

3!

Austin kicks out of the roll up a half a second too late and Kaelan rushes out of the ring shocked that she was able to pull off this victory.

Sanction: “Kaelan scouted that roll up and answered with one of her own to steal this victory from Austin!”

Tempest: “Stolen Victory is right! I can’t believe that actually worked!”

Sanction: “Kaelan really did a number on Austin’s legs. I can only imagine that played a factor.”

Tempest: “But Austin kicked out!”

Sanction: “The referee says it was a little too late.”

Tempest: “The disappointment on Austin’s face right now as he pleads his case…”

Austin is talking to the ref, explaining he kicked out as the ref shakes his head no. Kaelan is shocked she won as Austin hangs his head and puts his hands on his head.

Tara: “Here is your winner and advancing to the next round of the Lord of the Rings Tournament and NEWWWW XWA WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION… KAAAAAAAAEEEELLLLAAAANNNN LLLAAAUGHHHLLLIIINNN.”

The referee hands Kaelan the XWA World Television Championship as “Warrior” by Dead by April begins to play. Kaelan is stunned and there are tears in her eyes as she holds the belt up high in the air to a mixed reaction from the fans. Austin is frozen in the ring in disbelief. The cameras go to Kaelan’s face as she shows off the belt.

Kaelan: “I told you I would...and I did! I’m the Champ and soon to be Lord of the Ring!”

Sanction: “What’s XWA Massacre without a little bit of controversy?!”

Tempest: “And boy was that a controversial win for Kaelan. Like it or not though she is our XWA World Television Champion.”

Sanction: “Well it’s like she just said she said she would and she did. That’s all that matters. Austin fought hard and showed why he deserved to be the Champion but Kaelan pulled off the victory in the end.”

Tempest: “This is only the Quarterfinals folks! Keep tuning in because it’s only going to get better from here. I’m Tempest.”

Sanction: “And I’m Mark Sanction have a good night!”

The cameras fade out on Kaelan beaming from ear to ear as she holds up the XWA World Television Title and Austin stands in the ring shaking his head in disbelief as he looks up at the ramp.

Re: Lord of the Ring Quarterfinal: Austin Carter vs. Kaelan Laughlin - MAIN EVENT! XWA WORLD TV TITLE MATCH!

Postby Jessi » Tue Jul 16, 2019 5:14 am

We return from a brief commercial break to the view of Mark Sanction and Tempest at ringside as they welcome the Main Event of the evening.


MARK SANCTION: Ladies and Gentleman, Welcome back to the Quarterfinals of the Lord of the Ring Tournament! We are ready to present out Main event of the evening…


Fun little graphic of the upcoming match comes fading in… Swoosh!


TEMPEST: Yes, we have our very new, very Daredevil-ish Television Champion, Austin Carter taking on ‘The Irish Rose’ Kaelan Laughlin for the first time anywhere! The title is on the line in this one, will Carter survive and successfully defend his newly won Championship or will Laughlin follow through with her promise to win the Championship in her second match here in the XWA?

MARK SANCTION: All great questions that will be answered in just a few moments. Let’s get things started!




The beginning beat to “Warrior” by Dead by April begins to play as Kaelan Laughlin appears from behind the curtain with a cheer to meet the ones coming from the crowd. She stands on the top of the ramp soaking up all the cheers before she begins to speed walk her way down the ramp. Slapping fans hands as she goes.


TEMPEST: You know how I said that I never thought I’d see the day with Kaelan Laughlin would enter an XWA ring? Well, I have another one for you. I would have never thought I’d see ‘The Irish Rose’ take on ‘The Windy City Daredevil’, much less see it happen in an XWA ring.


Kaelan stops at the bottom of the ramp and bounces on her feet before taking off at a run to slide under the ropes. Sliding into the ring and rising up off her knees, flipping her long hair back as she does.


MARK SANCTION: Having beaten a very game Jace Albright to move on in the Tournament, Kaelan now meets Austin Carter. And let’s not forget the stipulation here. The Television Title is on the line and I’m sure Kaelan Laughlin would love nothing more than to end Austin Carter’s celebratory train here tonight as well as get herself one step closer to becoming #1 Contender for the Supreme Championship.


Walking to the ropes to lean over them and throw her hands in the air to pose before hopping off as the music fades out and she begins to pace and stretch getting ready for the match.





Blue lights flicker as the beginning of Citizen Erased by Muse begins to play through the sound systems. Smoke overwhelms the stage as the guitar riff in the intro of the song rings out. The camera’s pan to Austin Carter emerging from the bottom of the stage via the platform, as cheers from the crowd being to fill the arena. Carter steps out onto the stage, looking down at the title on his waist, he pats it for good luck. He then turns around so the crowd can see his backside, turning the title belt so that it’s in full view of the crowd. He brings his arms up, striking his chest twice. Afterwards, he spreads both his arms making peace signs with his hands, as if his body were a cross.


MARK SANCTION: Just a few weeks ago, Austin Carter won his first Career XWA Championship and now he looks to successfully defend it in front of the 1,500 in attendance here in the Battlezone!


He turns back around to face the ring, turning the title along with himself as he proceeds to walk to the edge of the ring. He stops and begins to jump and shake his head and proceeds to walk to the steel steps and run up them. He then walks on the apron almost to the other turnbuckle and walks backwards, back to the other.


TEMPEST: A rather impressive victory over the very resilient Dave O’Connor on the last Massacre, It’ll be interesting to see how Carter keeps his momentum up going into this one.


He enters the ring climbing to the nearest turnbuckle, removing the belt from his waist. He lifts it high, drawing cheers from the crowd. His music fades as he jumps down and walks to the corner nearest the announce table, hopping on to sit on the turnbuckle. He places the belt over his shoulder as he waits for the introductions.


DING! DING!

HANA RAMIEREZ: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following is part of the QUARTERFINALS of the Lord of the Ring and is for the XWA WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP!


Cheap pops, Cheap pops everywhere!


HANA RAMIEREZ: Introducing first, the Challenger… From Belfast, Ireland… Weighing in at 135 lbs… She is ‘The Irish Rose’... KAELAN!!! LAUGHLIN!!!


On cue, Laughlin walks over to the ropes for the second time tonight, leaning over them and throwing her hands in the air to pose for the XWA fans in attendance. A mixed reaction then ensues. She walks back to her corner once the excitement dies down.


HANA RAMIEREZ: Now introducing the Champion… From Chicago, Illinois… Weighing in at 213 lbs… He is the XWA WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION!... AUSTIN!!! CARTER!!!


Carter stands on the turnbuckle, lifting his championship up to the skies. A warm welcoming response greets him. He jumps down from the turnbuckles when the time for taunting is over, handing his Championship over the Wayne Johnston, the Official for the match. Once he has a tight grasp of the title around his hands, he lifts it up in the air showing all between the four walls the shiny silver. He gives the belt away to a ringside staffer as he calls for the bell.


DING! DING!


We begin with a very intense staredown between both competitors as both ends of the crowd show who they favor most in the matchup.


CROWD: LET’S GO OZZO! LET’S GO KAE! LET’S GO OZZO! LET’S GO KAE! LET’S GO OZZO! LET’S GO KAE!


The two competitors have had enough of the staring contest as they begin their circle-round around the ring. The chanting from the crowd never seeming to cease. Kaelan moves towards the middle, seemingly inviting Carter to join her as the two lock up in the collar-and-elbow. The man and woman both jostling for the upper hand at the start. It is Kaelan, however, capturing Carter in a side headlock. Bending over, she pulls Carter forward and over her back down to the mat, back first. She never loses hold of the headlock. Upon hitting the mat, Carter keeps his feet up, he waits for Kaelan to drop her head slightly to capture it between his legs, thus breaking the hold. Quickly to their feet, both competitors charge each other but it is Carter who answers by hooking her arm to complete the arm drag.


MARK SANCTION: Deep arm drag by Carter…


The scene just like before but it is Carter’s head caught between Laughlin’s legs.


MARK SANCTION: … but Laughlin counters with a headlock.


A kip-up is all that is needed to get Carter off the ground but great minds seem to think a like as Kaelan follows suit with a kip-up of her own as they enter another staredown. The crowd cheers for the previous exchange.


TEMPEST: Oh-ho-ho! Here we go!


They back away from each other. Carter going to the ropes, using them as an assist to lean against them. Another trip around the square they go. Carter squats down, thinking his next few steps before joining Kaelan in the middle of the ring for another collar-and-elbow.


MARK SANCTION: Again, collar-and-elbow tie up in the middle of the ring…


Jostling for position once more but Austin is the victor. Grabbing hold of her arm, Austin twists it, going up and over his head. He goes underneath, holding Laughlin’s wrist behind his back now, he forces his hand upward towards her neck, applying as much pressure he can to the shoulder joint. Carter removes his hand from Laughlin’s neck as he turns to face her but refuses to release the hold on the arm, rather, twisting it the opposite way. Kaelan tries to pry his hands off her wrist, even slapping his face to get him to remove the hold but he won’t budge. Instead, he tugs the arm towards him. Kaelan pulls him to the middle of the ring. Bending down, she spins underneath Carter, eventually leaving her foot atop his, managing to break the hold.


MARK SANCTION: Look at Laughlin, stepping on the foot there…

Carter tries to get her foot off but she pushes him back first to the mat, instead. Carter goes to a seated position, still trying to free his foot. Kaelan, however, grabs hold of his arm, applying pressure to the shoulder by pressing her freed hand against it.


MARK SANCTION: … Brilliant way to exit the hammerlock as Kaelan answer back with an arm wrench of her own.


Kaelan comes off the foot stomp as she twists Carter’s arm more, actually moving the wrist more than the arm itself, stretching the wrist back to a position Carter is totally not used to. Carter sees a way out and he takes it, rolling through to get back to his feet but Laughlin doesn’t let up on the hold on his arm. She applies more pressure, forcing Carter back down to the ground. Kaelan joins him as she takes a knee, capturing Carters hand between her biceps as she closes the gap between her forearm and her bicep.


MARK SANCTION: Laughlin wanting to manipulate those digits!


She grabs Carter’s hand with he freed one, continuing the bend of the fingers before slamming the bent fingers down to the mat.


TEMPEST: Oh man! Just jamming the fingers into the mat.


Carter is quickly on his feet but Laughlin meets him halfway, going back to the hand. She intertwines her finger in between his, lifting their hands up to the sky before twisting their arms on the way down for a knuckle lock.


TEMPEST: Kaelan just continuing the pain, showing everyone her submission specialty.


Kaelan uses her free hand and puts against his abdomen. Surprising everyone, she lifts Carter up, dropping him on back on his legs. She pulls Carter back to the ground. Still holding on to his hand, Kaelan puts right legs behind his shoulder, falling backwards to the mat.


MARK SANCTION: Oh! Grapevines the leg and that’s one way to hyperextend an elbow.


Carter rolls away for the moment, trying to get some time away from Laughlin but she goes back on the attack of the left arm. Placing her knee against his head, she grabs hold of the wrist, bending it forward now. She slowly brings the wrist down to the side of his head while pressing down on his elbow to keep it there.


TEMPEST: Perfect technique by the ‘Queen of Submission’, controlling the high flying opponent.


Carter rolls overhead, getting his position back to his feet. Releasing the previous hold that involved the manipulation of his arm, he grabs hold of Laughlin’s left like before. Twisting it while going under the arm as the competitors walks towards the middle of the ring. Carter decides to switch position again, going under the arm, twisting it the other way. Carter faces away from and slightly to the side of Laughlin. He then reaches behind them and applies a three-quarter facelock to his opponent. Carter hooks Laughlin’s near leg with his own near leg, applying pressure to her chin as he pulls her head towards him. He tries to apply more pressure with his left arm but the numbness from the previous attacks prevents him from doing so.


TEMPEST: Can’t apply full pressure because of the damage to the left hand.


In his head, Carter knows this move will not last as long as he’d like. So, grabbing the left hand again going for the under arm turn as he twists the joint. He uses his free hand to pull Kaelan’s left leg out from under her.


TEMPEST: I think this is a mistake from Carter, I think he’s a better high flyer…


Carter keeps his hold on the left leg of a faced-up Laughlin and holds it between his legs before dropping to a kneeling position. Carter looks to pull on the foot to hyperextend the ankle but he has other plans.


MARK SANCTION: Well, Carter’s showing that he is not only a high flyer, well versed in different styles around the world…


Carter gets to his feet, stepping over the left leg. He pushes the foot towards Laughlin’s face. Laughlin, though, tries to pushes her foot away from her to alleviate the pressure being caused but Carter pushes back. The two of them struggling for control of the left foot.


MARK SANCTION: … And he wants to show Kaelan Laughlin that he can keep up with her submissionist ways.

TEMPEST: Look all I’m saying is that the closer he gets to Kaelan Laughlin the easier it is for Laughlin to take back the advantage.


Austin takes the pressure off of Kaelan’s foot, pulling back to step over the leg. Just like the scene before, holding the leg between his leg and kneeling on the ankle. This time after coming down, Carter grabs hold of her right leg, crossing it over her left.


TEMPEST: All I’m saying is that Carter needs to be real careful because between the two of them, Kaelan has the most experience with holds and that knowledge can change the game drastically.


Carter rolls to his side with Kaelan in toll, forcing her onto her stomach. Once the roll is complete, Carter takes his available leg and places it on top of Laughlin’s crossed legs.


MARK SANCTION: Well it looks like he’s not having a problem with that right now. He can navigate the body just like Kaelan Laughlin can.


The hold continues as the battlezone crowd resumes their chants from before.


CROWD: LET’S GO OZZO! LET’S GO KAE! LET’S GO OZZO! LET’S GO KAE! LET’S GO OZZO! LET’S GO KAE!


Kaelan looks behind her and notices Carter’s foot tangled in between her legs. She grabs hold of the ankle, pulling it towards her, forcing Carter to turn onto his stomach. She escapes the hold, quickly crossing Ozzo’s left leg over the pit of his right knee. She pulls on the right leg, putting on the pressure to both of Carter’s ankles.


TEMPEST: Laughlin hooks the ankle to alleviate the pressure, an incredibly seamless transition into the figure-four herself.

MARK SANCTION: Exquisite mat grappling on display courtesy of Kaelan Laughlin…


Whilst holding on to the foot, Kaelan turns her attention to Austin’s right arm, hooking it. She let go of her grip on his foot, focusing in on the arm. Carter using his left to push himself up as he slides behind Laughlin.


MARK SANCTION: … And Carter’s been holding his own when it comes to the mat game.


Taking advantage of the hold Kaelan has on his arm, Austin grabs her wrist, bending her arm against her back.


MARK SANCTION: Seamless counter here by Ozzo, into the Hammerlock on Laughlin.

TEMPEST: I think we’re gonna see a slow opening to this match.


Carter grabs her available arm, pulling it towards him. He places his foot on the arm, pinning it on the mat which cause Laughlin’s shoulders to go down.


“ONE!
KICKOUT!


MARK SANCTION: Shoulders down for the count of one!


Laughlin very smart to use her legs to not only get the kickout but to turn over to her stomach as she rolls onto Carter’s feet, making him fall back first onto the mat. Laughlin seizes the left leg of Ozzo, turning 90 degrees. She then grabs Carter’s other leg and crosses it with the other, then bridging over.


MARK SANCTION: Grapevines the leg again!


With enough strength and willpower, Laughlin is on the defense, flipping herself and Carter over forcing Carter onto his belly.


TEMPEST: Kaelan just said “Anything you can do, I can do better”!


Dead center of the ring, Carter tries to crawl his way to the ropes to try to break the modified indian deathlock but Kaelan has other plans. Carefully uncrossing Carter’s legs, she slides her leg out from between his legs. Carter tries to roll onto his back but Laughlin turns him back to his stomach. Kaelan places one foot down just above each of Carter's knees and bends his legs up, hooking them around her own knees; at this point Laughlin grasps right hand, preventing Carter from reaching for the ropes. She bends the hand backwards, manipulating the extremity.


MARK SANCTION: Laughlin focusing her attack back to the wrist!

TEMPEST: Carter needs to get to that bottom rope because Kaelan Laughlin has got bad intentions.


Carter tries to pry her hold off with his free hand but this proves to be a disadvantage for him as Kaelan on has her hold on both wrist. Laughlin falls backwards while compressing Carter's shoulder-blades and lifting them off the ground. This is where we see The Irish Rose fall to and go onto her back, lifting the opponent skyward.


MARK SANCTION: No chance getting that bottom rope now, Laughlin’s got that Romero Special locked in!


Carter manages to get his right foot loose from the hold, as he intentionally flips his body, slamming onto the top of Laughlin for a quick attempt at the pin.


MARK SANCTION: Counter by Ozzo!


“ONE!
KICKOUT!


MARK SANCTION: Kicks out at the count of one!


From the pin attempt, Carter’s arm is back in Kaelan’s grasp, bending it against his back again. Carter slams his fist down on the mat in frustration as Laughlin applies pressure back to his shoulder.


TEMPEST: Laughlin not going to make any mistakes, she realizes what is at stake here. The Television Title and a chance to advance in the Lord of the Ring Tournament.

MARK SANCTION: Laughlin would love nothing more than to accomplish the same feat a short list of individuals in the past have completed and that is winning the Television championship in her second official XWA match and that is why her keeping control like this is so important right now.


She then grabs his chin, pulling it upward, causing Carter to groan in despair. Carter looks to the nearest set of rooms, eyeballing the bottom one as he reaches out for it with his available arm. Kaelan sees this and places Carter's right arm over her shoulder before locking her hands around the lower part of Carter face, then pulls back. As she pulls back, however, Carter rolls on through.


TEMPEST: And for a second there, Carter managing to counter his way out of the attempted crossface but can he stay on top.


Ozzo turns Kae over to her stomach. Grabbing the left arm for another time, going underneath and twisting it, Carter strikes with a stiff knee to the ribcage of Laughlin. Austin very slowly, very carefully brings Kaelan down to the ground again. He comes down with a knee drop to the shoulder.


MARK SANCTION: Quick knee drop across the shoulder region of Kaelan Laughlin.


Carter shakes his left hand, again feeling the painful numb feeling caused by the awful manipulation. He goes for another but Laughlin is already on her feet, using the ropes as a safe haven to get Carter off of her for the time being.


TEMPEST: You can see now that left hand is proving to be fatal. Everytime Ozzo attempts a hold, he can’t hold on as long as he would like.


Referee Johnston guides Carter away from Laughlin as she is still on the ropes. Meanwhile, Carter tries to shake off the unnerving feeling in his hand. Laughlin uses this time as an edge in her favor. Seeing as Carter is distracted, she charges with a highly stiff forearm, enough to knock Ozzo into seeing stars.


MARK SANCTION/TEMPEST: OHHHH!!!!

MARK SANCTION: What a ferocious forearm strike by the Orange haired Brawler!

TEMPEST: Shots. Fired. Is that how the kids say it?


A smirk appears on Kaelan’s face as she collects herself in a corner. She observes Carter trying to figure out where he is. She walks over to him, lifting him up by his chin. Carter, though, on the offensive of any attack, strikes with a double palm strike to the abdomen. He follows it up quickly with an uppercut of the European kind, forcing Kaelan to stumble back a bit. Austin takes a second to catch his breath, recovering back only to meet Laughlin with a backhand chop to the chest.


TEMPEST/CROWD: Oh!


The chop is briefly followed by a forearm shot, then another backhand, with the chop sending Laughlin to lean against the top rope. Having used the last bit of energy he seemed to have left, Carter takes a knee to recuperate.


MARK SANCTION: Carter fighting fire with fire.


Laughlin sees the chance, now that Carter is on his knee, to at least give back some attack in the form of a boot to the side of the head. To which Carter answers back with another backhand chop before grabbing her left wrist for the whip across. Kaelan reverses for a whip of her own, sending Carter to the ropes instead. Kaelan bends down, allowing Carter to roll onto her back.


TEMPEST: Nice escape…


Now on his feet, Carter avoids a clothesline attempt by rolling forward on the mat. He uses his feet to push himself off the mat and roll backwards, placing his legs on both of Laughlin’s shoulders, dragging her into a forced somersault onto the mat.


TEMPEST: … This is where Austin Carter needs to be!


Carter kips himself up as Laughlin gets up to her feet. Carter meets her halfway, dropping her down to the mat with a dropkick and sending her out of the ring and onto the entrance ramp. The Battlezone can sense what's to come as they get on their feet.


CROWD: OZZO! OZZO-OZZO-OZZO! OZ-ZO! OZ-ZO! OZZO! OZZO-OZZO-OZZO! OZ-ZO! OZ-ZO! OZZO! OZZO-OZZO-OZZO! OZ-ZO! OZ-ZO!

MARK SANCTION: The Daredevil is looking for it!


Ozzo stands in the middle of the ring, up to his usual antics. He scrapes his boot against the mat before running towards the opposing ropes. He rebounds as he runs towards Kaelan, leaping through the top and middle rope!


MARK SANCTION: Topé suicida by the Daredevil! Wipes out the Brawler from Belfast!


Carter picks Laughlin up and tosses her back into the ring. The crowd chants catch Carter’s attention as he nods to the rhythm of the recitation. Carter slides back into the ring, after his time outside, to see Laughlin already up on her feet and rebounding off the opposing ropes. She charges him again with another clothesline but the attempt is dodged yet again by a rolling Carter. Using his feet again to his advantage, he rolls on back, placing his feet on the shoulders of The Flying Fox but she grabs hold of his feet, preventing any movement from the in-ring speedster.


MARK SANCTION: Another roll through but this time Laughlin neutralizes Carter’s attack.


She grabs of his left foot with both hands, twisting and manipulating the ankle.


MARK SANCTION: Oh! Instead of the hands, she’s going for the ankle!


Feeling finished with the hold, Kae takes the opportunity to kick the left arm of Carter, one of the arms holding him up while she had her way with his ankle.


MARK SANCTION: And a BIG kick by Laughlin!


Both Laughlin and Carter collect themselves in different sides of the ring. Carter still on the mat, nursing his left arm as he shakes off the pain of the kick. Laughlin standing tall, making sure her nose is okay.


TEMPEST: Laughlin targeting that left arm again.

MARK SANCTION: What an enthralling encounter. So, much at stake…

She runs her fingers through her hair while walking towards Carter, who has turned over to his side. This proves to be a downfall for him and benefit for her as she comes from behind with a soccer kick to the spine.


MARK SANCTION: The Television Title as well as the chance of advancing to the Semi-Finals of the Lord of the Ring Tournament is on the line.


Kaelan drags Austin out to the middle of the ring. He tries to reach for the ropes to prevent this but he doesn’t reach in time. She forces him back onto his stomach, placing her foot on the back of his head to keep him there. She moves his right arm behind his right knee, grabbing a hold of his right foot. She pulls the leg towards her, bending the foot downward to distort the ankle in a bad way.


MARK SANCTION: Wow! Kaelan Laughlin just twisting Austin Carter’s body like a pretzel…


She places the foot under her arm and pulls on the knee, releasing the hold once Carter’s arm escapes. She places her foot back on his head, grabbing a hold of the right arm again. She prys open his fisted hand, seizing hold of his middle finger. She lets out a smile before bending the finger backwards so that the finger touches the back of his hand. The commentary team and the crowd join Carter in screams of terror as Laughlin grasps his ring finger.


TEMPEST: Jesus! He’s gonna need that finger for his wedding!


She releases her hold on the middle finger, quickly replacing it for the thumb. She waits a single second before bending the ring finger again along with the thumb, forcing Carter to scream out in agony.


TEMPEST: OH COME ON!


Kae releases the fingers as she turns her complete attention to the wrist, contorting the radiocarpal joint for probably the hundredth time in this match.


MARK SANCTION: Laughlin must have a thing against piano players, the way she attacks…


She presses on his bicep, turning his arm in a way it should never be turned.


MARK SANCTION: … the fingers and not just the fingers, Tempest.

TEMPEST: The elbow joint, the shoulder…


She seizes hold of the left arm, putting it against his back along with the right as if she were to arrest him, only to stomp at the back of the head, causing Carter to go seated while clutching with frontal region of his cranium. As he goes back down to the mat, Kaelan necks him for good measure.


TEMPEST: … and the neck as well, just picking Ozzo apart.


Oz rolls towards a corner, aiming to get away from Kae for at least a few seconds. His wish hasn’t been granted as Laughlin’s back on the attack, this time wrapping her arm around the daredevil’s neck and back, then grabbing the waist of his tights, tossing him backwards…


MARK SANCTION: Exploder… NO!


… Carter saves himself from the impactful fall to the mat by just barely landing on his feet.


TEMPEST: I cannot believe it!

MARK SANCTION: Carter landed on his feet!


Laughlin goes to all fours as Carter regains control of his footing. He sees the position and takes the chance, running and executing a backflip onto Kae’s back.


MARK SANCTION: Oh! Standing star press to the back!


Carter rolls Laughlin onto her back for the cover.


“ONE!
TWO!
THR- KICKOUT!


MARK SANCTION: And Carter gets a two and a half!

CROWD: THIS IS AWESOME! FIGHT FOREVER! THIS IS AWESOME! FIGHT FOREVER! THIS IS AWESOME! FIGHT FOREVER! THIS IS AWESOME! FIGHT FOREVER!


Carter remains seated after the pin regaining his composure.


TEMPEST: No matter how many times you see Austin Carter in the ring, that freakish agility, that freakish athleticism. It’s exactly why he is just so exciting to watch.

MARK SANCTION: A true testament to how talented these two superstars are, just listen to the Battlezone!


Carter musters the strength to get to his feet. He walks over to the nearest corner, floating over the top rope to begin his ascent. As he makes his way to the top, back in the ring, Laughlin finds her way to her feet. Carter only sees this when he stands tall on the top. Laughlin runs towards the corner where her opponent is only for him to leapfrog over her, rolling on through to the opposing corner. As Austin leans back into the corner, Kaelan runs towards him again, this time meeting to legs that push her back, rolling onto the mat. When she gets to her feet, a rolling Carter charges at her. He jumps up, only for Laughlin to catch his left arm as he slams on down to the mat. She pulls his arm across her chest. Kaelan then holds the other arm with her legs, stretching the shoulders back in a crucifix position, hyperextending Carter’s arm.


MARK SANCTION: She’s got the crucifix armbar locked in!


However, the hold doesn’t remain on for too long as Carter pushes himself upwards with his feet, turning himself over to pin Laughlin’s shoulders to the mat for the pin.


“ONE!
TWO!
KICKOUT!


Kaelan quick releases the hold as Carter goes to his feet. Carter speedily storms a seated Laughlin with a kick that Laughlin ducks by lying back down. Carter still on his feet, executes a backflip, to which Kaelan rolls out of the way for, leaving Austin to crash and burn to the mat.


MARK SANCTION: Laughlin avoids the attack and the standing moonsault attempt by Carter.


Kae sets her foot on the left wrist of Ozzo as she slowly gets to her feet, not once losing her place.


MARK SANCTION: My goodness.

TEMPEST: Honestly, it’s a good thing Carter’s right handed because after tonight…


Before Tempest could even finish his sentence, Laughlin just goes ham with the stomps onto Carter’s digits!


TEMPEST: … Oh my god!

MARK SANCTION: Kaelin Laughlin just stomping the fingers like grapes in a wine cellar.


The attack ceases as Johnston backs Laughlin away from Carter as he rolls away from any immediate danger.


TEMPEST: Laughlin has made that hand absolutely useless.


Carter gets to his feet, leaning against the middle rope. Kaelan goes to him, lifting him to a standing position seems rather useless to her cause as Carter answers with a high knee, knocking her back to the mat.


MARK SANCTION: Oh! But he’s got the knee!


Carter falls through the middle rope and out onto the apron.


MARK SANCTION: Austin Carter’s knees are still working just fine!


Using the ropes as an assist, Carter slowly makes his way to his feet, still nursing the left hand. Once he feels at least some strength in his hand, he grips the top rope. Seeing Laughlin get to her feet, he jumps onto the rope. He leaps towards Laughlin…


MARK SANCTION: Carter looking for an Uppercut…


… BLAM! Laughlin stops him in his tracks with a Superkick!


TEMPEST: Oh-ho-ho!

MARK SANCTION: Laughlin sending her best wishes From Belfast with Love!



Laughlin looks to want to end this as she quickly picks up Carter. She stands in front of him, putting him into a ¾ facelock, running towards and up the corner turnbuckles. She jumps backwards performing a backflip, landing into a seated position, driving Carter's head between the legs.


MARK SANCTION: Oh! The Flying Fox has been executed!

TEMPEST: We could have a new champion!


Laughlin maintains the position, lifting Carter’s leg for the pin.


TEMPEST: COVER!


“ONE!
TWO!
THR- KICKOUT!


MARK SANCTION: OZZO NEARLY JUMPED OUT OF HIS SKIN! This Television Championship match continues!


Dazed and confused is the best way to describe the look on Carter’s face after the kick out as Laughlin scoots back into a corner to help herself back to her feet by way of the ropes.


TEMPEST: What. A. Main. Event! These two have put on a show thus far!


On her feet, Kaelan walks over to Carter, who currently travels on all fours looking for some sort of assistance. She follows behind him, kicking him at the back of his head each inch he moves. Kicking him, as if she were to be guiding him somewhere, because whenever she kicked him, Ozzo would move toward a certain direction. The direction he stops at? Oh, just the nearest corner, where she lifts him up onto the top rope.


MARK SANCTION: What could Laughlin be possibly planning here?!


She joins him, climbing onto the middle rope. She applies the front facelock, draping Carter’s left arm over her shoulder.


MARK SANCTION: She might be looking for a Superplex!


She goes to lift him up but Carter hangs onto the top rope, preventing anything else. Carter starts to fight back, striking her rib cage with stiff right body shots.


TEMPEST: Ozzo’s fighting back!


Once Kaelan releases her hold on Carter, he backs up only just to collide both his and her head together, headbutting her off the middle rope and down to the mat. She doesn’t fall down though as she’s still on her feet. She’s too busy nursing her head to realizes Carter has taken position on the middle rope.


MARK SANCTION: What’s Austin gonna do here?


Once Kaelan turns around, Carter leaps at her with a knee strike!


MARK SANCTION: Finiscilo! Carter has struck with the knee strike!

TEMPEST: I don’t think he’s done there!


Tempest is right. Quickly back on his feet, Carter ventures to another corner. Settling on the middle rope, he waits for Laughlin to stand up once more. Once she does, he leaps in again for another knee strike!


MARK SANCTION: And another one!


Kaelan falls seated after the second Finiscilo!, but that doesn’t stop Carter’s train, no not one bit. Carter, runs towards the opposing ropes, rebounding off them to strike a third and final knee strike. He slides in for the pin attempt.
TEMPEST: Third times the charm!

MARK SANCTION: Could that have done it? Could that have allowed Carter to keep his title?


“ONE!
KICKOUT!


MARK SANCTION: WHAT THE HELL!


The crowd loses their minds seeing as Kaelan Laughlin just managed to kick out of not one but three Finiscilo!’s.


CROWD: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!

TEMPEST: Holy shit, indeed. The look on Carter’s face says it all.


Image


Being shocked and absolutely unsure of what just happened doesn’t keep Carter down for too long as he’s back on his feet and headed back into one of the corners he previously occupied.


MARK SANCTION: Carter is looking to go for a fourth run, could this be it? Will the fourth one keep Kaelan Laughlin down for the 3 seconds needed?


Laughlin army crawls around the ring before finding the strength to get up to her feet by herself. She turns around to face him, the man already charging towards her for the knee strike to the side of the head, sending her plummeting down to her side.


MARK SANCTION: For the fourth and final time, could this do it?!


Carter dives in for the hopeful final pin attempt.

“ONE!
TWO!
THREE!”


DING! DING!


MARK SANCTION: Carter did it! Carter retains in his first title defense and moves on to the semi-finals of the tournament!


HANA RAMIEREZ: Here is your winner… Advancing to the Semi-Finals and still the XWA World Television Champion!!!!!! AUSTIN!!! CARTER!!!


With help from the referee Johnston, Carter gets to his feet and is handed his title as his hand is raised. He walks over to the nearest corner, climbing it only to the middle rope to raise his title in victory as medical staff enters the ring to check up on Laughlin.


TEMPEST: What. A. Match.

MARK SANCTION: You said it and what a night. Thank you for joining us, ladies and gentlemen for this edition of Massacre. Join us next time as we head into the Semi-finals of the Lord of the Ring Tournament. Until then, Goodnight everyone.


Carter exits the ring, greeting and celebrating his victory with the fans as the telecast ends.

Postby Dave_Maniac » Tue Jul 16, 2019 5:02 pm

Kaelan Laughlin
What I liked: The pacing at the end, the false finishes were great.. the Kaelan fights off being put down is great showing off true Irish pride.
What I disliked: This part here throws off the whole pacing of the match.
The referee starts making the count.

1…

2…

3....

Austin stirs first and starts getting to his feet. Kaelan’s leg moves slightly.

4…

5…

Austin gets completely to his feet and stumbles a couple of steps before shaking it off. He looks from Kaelan to the ref. Kaelan starts to stir and pulls herself to an upright position but still stays on the ground.

6…

Tempest: “Come on Austin you gotta get back in the ring. Kaelan might just get counted out. A win is a win.”

Sanction: “I’m not sure that’s the way he wants to win.”

Austin walks over to the ring and rolls his body into the ring before back out. Just to break up the count. The ref yells for him to bring the action back into the ring. He shakes his head no and goes over to grab Kaelan up. He puts his arms around her in a bear hug and just as he’s about to suplex her Kaelan headbutts him in the face causing Austin to let her go and stumble backwards grabbing his head. The ref has been counting the entire time.

...4

5…

Sanction: “What an impressive Headbutt from Laughlin.”

Tempest: “I hear the Irish can be very hard headed Mark.”

Sanction: “You’re proud of that one aren’t you?”

Tempest: “Yes I am.”

Kaelan grabs Austin and slams his head into the ring apron. While the ref counts.

...7.
Personal Favourite Part: The idea of exchaging finishers and moves was well done, just missing that greater explanation of the moves instead of just naming them.
Personal Least Favourite Part: The countout, it slowed the match pacing and had me jump that whole part to continue reading the match.
Constructive Criticism for Next Time: I know I am not exempt of this (being mexican I do a lot of typos) but the typos like where you said the Kaelan make me loose it, read several times your post. You should also improve your match pacing, do nto slow down to a halt... keep building up to an exoplosion.
Final Comments: I think with a little work you got a bright future ahead, just need to improve your writting.
-------
Austin Carter
What I liked: Everything, the whole match was a delight to read... the pacing, the description of the moves was an easy reading.
What I disliked: I am old school, I think finishers should be saved and be a hard move to execute, once they hit it should take the wrestler down and not be able to move... unless it is a personal feud... for instance I could se Austin kicking out of a Flying Knee.
Personal Favourite Part: great exchange dude...
Carter musters the strength to get to his feet. He walks over to the nearest corner, floating over the top rope to begin his ascent. As he makes his way to the top, back in the ring, Laughlin finds her way to her feet. Carter only sees this when he stands tall on the top. Laughlin runs towards the corner where her opponent is only for him to leapfrog over her, rolling on through to the opposing corner. As Austin leans back into the corner, Kaelan runs towards him again, this time meeting to legs that push her back, rolling onto the mat. When she gets to her feet, a rolling Carter charges at her. He jumps up, only for Laughlin to catch his left arm as he slams on down to the mat. She pulls his arm across her chest. Kaelan then holds the other arm with her legs, stretching the shoulders back in a crucifix position, hyperextending Carter’s arm.


MARK SANCTION: She’s got the crucifix armbar locked in!


However, the hold doesn’t remain on for too long as Carter pushes himself upwards with his feet, turning himself over to pin Laughlin’s shoulders to the mat for the pin.
Personal Least Favourite Part: Like I said, finishers should be protected dude... she should not have kicked out specialy since it was close to a finish.
Constructive Criticism for Next Time: Protect your moves and add more moves between the commentators banter.
Final Comments: Love your work... hope we can have a rematch.
----
The Person Getting My VOTE: AUSTIN CARTER
Overall Match Comments: Great match both just Kaelan needs to develop more her writting but she can get there.

So, heads-up...Austin Carter's version of the match has been withdrawn from competition due to some timezone confusion issues. I'll elaborate more on this in an announcement post, but there's a bit of a hole in our system that this match exposed, and it legitimately affected the competition here. Meant to post this here before a vote slipped in, but...yeah.

As such, we're flipping this to a FEEDBACK thread. You don't need to use the Voting Template anymore, since we've got a winner already, but as always, be detailed and constructive so we can all help each other learn and grow as match-writers.
