he show returns ringside to Mark Sanction and Matt Steel along with cheering fans that try to get on camera, the night has been electric as the tag team match gad some of the best displays of athleticism as you could have expected from such awesome teams, the crowd shows signs of support to the Supreme Champion.
Mark Sanction: Ladies and gentlemen that was one hell of a match but now we have to get ready for a blood feud that has been boiling since a couple of months ago, a match that both contenders want to settle once and for all.
Matt Steel: Yes, the next match between the blood thirsty, violent and maniacal Dave O’Connor and Albion Gale is going to get personal. The resident Madman has something to throw in Bella’s face and that is the FACT that he is unstoppable, just look at the level of destruction he just endured in Gold Up North. This means Albion is going to have her hands full.
Mark: Oh god there you go again, why do you say that... and, for the record, already regret asking that.
Matt: Just look at him, former MMA fighter, cage fighter, bare knuckled boxer, Muay Thai, Tae Kwon, Jiu Jitsu and Amateur wrestler practitioner... need I tell more?
Mark: But don’t forget he is a dirty cheater and if it wasn’t for his wife he would be nowhere near the level he is right now.
Matt: That is a bonus, I mean just look at his wife... I would love to be spanked by those hands, I am a bad boy baby hit me hard!
Mark: Aaaand there it is... it is never about the wrestling with you.
Matt: I am just saying what everyone is thinking... you just hate me ‘cus I got the balls to say it out loud.
Mark: You know Dave could split you in two if he knew you want his wife that bad?
Matt: I’d sell my soul, my self-esteem one dollar at a time for one taste of that.
Mark: Can we get back to the match at hand please? Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for a fight that might be one for the ages, Dave O’Connor versus Albion Gale, the Maniac versus the Duality of woman... the match the O’Connor clan has been waiting for. Tonight we will see if Bella’s plan to destroy the madman works, because after last week's Hell in Cell Deathmatch Dave ended up getting destroyed, he was bloody mess anmd he lost his beloved Hardcore Championship.
Matt: I saw the match and god it was a mess, I loved it! I remembered Laurel Anne Hardy, The Tarmogoyf, LX-Tim and DJS giving us that level of brutality, he is a Hall of Famer in the making.
Mark: I do not know about that, it all depends on the shape he is in.
The scene then shifts to the ring where Hana Ramirez along with referee Jack J. Tickles stand in the middle of the ring.
Hana Ramirez: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is a for the Supreme XWA Championship....
Suddenly the lights go out and Alissa’s face appears on the screen laughing maniacally only to slowly die down, then ominously her voice speaks in Gaelic.
Alissa O’Connor: Tiocfaidh ár lá...
Matt: I get chills down my spine with that entrance... that is amazing.
Then Dropkick Murphys "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" intro starts to blast through the PA system and when the drums start to play Dave and Alissa O'Connor walk out to the top of the ramp. Dave looks down to the ring with laser focus while she stares at the crowd with a smirk of disdain. His forehead has a lot of tape covering up his injuries from last week’s show, injuries he got there during the deathmatch with Hanako match.
Hana: Making his way to the ring, accompanied by Alissa O'Connor, from Boston Massachusetts, weighing in at 218 pounds, he is "The Maniac" Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaave Oooooooooo'Coooonnooooooooooooor.
As the music picks up speed, the red-haired goddess walks down the ramp in front of her husband who is wearing a black hooded leather jacket on top of his fighting gear. When they reach the bottom of the ring he opens up the middle ropes for his wife to get in, shortly after her he steps into the ring and takes off his jacket putting it on the floor. Meanwhile, Alissa grabs a microphone stares at the crowd with disdain and says in an angry voice.
Alissa: Fuck her up, babe.
After that, she walks out of the ring as he puts his mouthguard in punching both fists together as the music starts to die down.
Mark: There they are, the deadly O’Connor clan, the team that just became the pain in Bella’s behind.
Matt: Damn! Just look at Alissa, she is just perfect, I just want her to play with me for a while.
Alissa hears Matt say that and she just blinks an eye towards him giving him a smile.
Matt: You saw that?!
Mark: Yes, Yes... Can we please get back to work? You are a man-child!!.
Matt: I’ll just say this, have you noticed the good shape Dave is in? Given his previous match he should be a mess.
[Mark: Yes, I was just thinking that, just a bit of tape and that’s it, Hanako’s torture might have been enough to leave him injured for this match.
While both commentators discuss the nuances of the Madman’s health, “Invidia” starts playing over the speakers and, during the slow open, the sounds of distant thunder and wind are piped in as well making the crowd roar in unison. There is a louder thunderclap at the drop and water starts to pelt the stage in a simulated downpour. Albion walks out onto the stage, a black trenchcoat on over her ring gear and the Supreme XWA title around her waist. She stands proudly with her arms out in the deluge while the Phoenix comes out shortly behind her wearing his usual wrestling gear and the official Gold Rush shirt, when the “rain” stops they stride down to the ring.
Hana: Accompanied by "The Phoenix" Seiji Shimuzu, from Evansville, Indiana, weighing in at 164 pounds, she is the Supreme XWA Champion “the Duality of Woman”...Albiooooooooooooon Gaaaaaaaaaaaaale!
Compared to when her entrance theme started and all the storm sounds, the arena feels positively calm for Albion now the sound the crowd roaring is of little importance to her. As the song’s tempo increases, Albion’s pace quickens until she is in the ring while her teammate stays at ringside walking towards her corner. At this point she takes off the championship off form her waist leaving it on the mat and dramatically tears open her trenchcoat, revealing her ring attire underneath. She holds her arms out as though soaking in some sun before removing her coat and draping it over the top rope where a stagehand retrieves it and tucks it away next to the timekeeper along with the title belt. She then does some last-minute stretches to prepare for the upcoming match while Phoenix gets down to a kneeling seiza position.
Mark: Look at her, the grace of a true champion and a deadly woman. What amazes me is that she is coming to the ring with The Phoenix, she usually comes out alone but for tonight she is coming with some sort of insurance against Alissa.
Matt: Meh! Insurance? Dave already beat her, this is just a formality for the title.
Mark: Dave might have gotten the upper hand on his second match thanks to Alissa but this insurance is to make sure that doe snto happen again.
The referee stares at both wrestlers making sure they are both ready for the match to start, when he sees both nod he signals for the bell to ring.
DING, DING, DING!
Mark: There goes the bell! The future of the XWA hangs in the balance.
Matt: A true fighter should be crowned tonight and the southies should become the supreme leaders of the locker room.
Mark: That is just wishful thinking Matt.
Albion has already fought the Madman and knows he is a quick fighter who is ready to pounce at the bell, she holds her ground waiting for him to come. He smiles at the idea of the attack and so when the bell rigs he charges down towards his target quickly getting off the ground throwing his right foot forward to Albion’s face, she expect this so with lightning reflexes she dodges the attack easily. What she did not count on was that once he landed Dave would throw his back foot forward directly to her gut, Albion curves her body forward leaving her face open for a direct punch to the face that is closely followed by a front kick that intends to take out every little bit of air out of her lungs.
Matt: Look at the speed and force of those strikes, Albion did not know what hit her.
Mark: She is used to more technical fighters, Dave is another beast in the XWA, he is one beast Albion is trying to conquer once and for all.
Matt: She has said she was ready for him but after this quick set of strikes I have to say she is not ready to face the Maniac.
Dave walks close to his target and starts delivering consecutive left and right hooks to the gut which Albion tries to block, she manages to avoid some of them but other manage to get in tenderizing the area. Seeing no other way out she delivers a roundhouse kick to Dave’s knee forcing him to drop down to a knee, there Albion throws her right arm forward targeting his face forcing him to step backwards getting a three-point stance.
Matt: The champion quickly delivering a right hook to the face of Dave, he did not see that one coming.
Albion taking a page from Dave’s strategy, she wrenches his right arm to its limit forcing him to scream in pain. When she sees that Dave is in enough pain, she shuts him up by kicking the back of his head with her heel forcing him to roll away in pain. Dave quickly stands up holding his head, visibly unhappy because of the attack but he is quickly caught off guard by Albion wrapping her legs around his head taking him to the mat along with her.
Alissa: Come on Babe, beat this bitch up and take every ounce of pride away from her!
Shortly after taking Dave down Albion runs to the top rope bouncing from it while flipping her body in the air landing on top of him, what she did not know is that he was ready for it and so he locks her by the neck flipping her over for the submission.
Mark: Wow! Dave countering that springboard moonsault with a North-South choke, Dave is being very methodical on his moves... he has counters for every move Albion is doing, he’s working her psychologically.
Alissa: Teach this bitch who is the best here.
Albion is starting to get frustrated, her face is starting display her anger but she knows that is what they want, they want her to lose control and, in that moment, drag her to the depths of hell. She begins to breath slowly hoping to find a way out but the Maniac holds tight, her past as a cheerleader gives her an idea. She slowly starts to power through, she does everything in her power to force the Maniac to stand up along with her.
Matt: DAMN! Albion is strong for someone with her frame, she just made Dave get up with her but she’s still in a reverse headlock.
Albion turns around getting into a regular headlock, once in this position she uses her whole strength to push Dave away. Seeing as this is futile, she punches the gut of her opponent repeatedly softening him up a bit until she is able to freely push him away towards the ropes.
Alissa: Come on! Don’t let her get the best of you.
Mark: Albion was having hard time getting out of that hold, Dave seems to be a tough opponent for her.
Matt: Dave is a tough opponent for everyone, just look at him, the perfect fighting machine... Lean, mean and ready to kick ass!!!
Mark: Do you have a man crush on him?
Matt: And what if I do?
Mark: Oh god..
Dave is thrown to the ropes and knows Albion is not far behind so as he bounces back gathering more speed, he jumps off the mat catching her surprise landing on her chest taking her down. There he starts to deliver devastating forearms to her head, the strikes come raining down with such force that her head can be seen bouncing repeatedly on the mat. Dave is relentless to the point that he does not care if the forearms bust her open, give her a concussion or worse break her neck, all he wants is to do is win.
Alissa: Come one! Faster stronger deadlier! End her!
Albion cannot think clearly since the strikes come down with such force that she is unable to look for a way out, in a moment of desperation she hooks his head in a headlock and grabbing his tights flips him over hooking him for a pinfall that ends up with the referee quickly running in to do the count.
Matt: What the hell! Albion getting out out of that predicament by turning it to a pin.
Dave kicks out of that pinfall by throwing Albion of from him, he immediately rolls up along with Albion who receives him with a devastating dropkick to the face that sends the Maniac back down to the mat. With the experience he got in fighting circuits he manages to roll up along with Albion, they stare in anger at each other trying to figure out a way to gain the upper but neither seems to be able to do that. In a fit of pure desperation both run at each meeting in the middle of the ring, Dave throws a lariat hoping to strike the neck of the champion but she ducks going for the ropes and bouncing back. The Maniac is amazed at this and just in time turns around lifting his front foot and throwing it forward, the Duality of Woman ducks at just the right time feeling the leg of the Madman rush by over her head.
Mark: Both wrestlers trying to hit the other but they seem to barely miss each other, this is just a demonstration that both wrestlers are at the same level!
Gaining far more momentum, Albion bounces from the ropes a second time only to jump from the mat wrapping her legs around his neck and with the pure momentum helping her, she throws her body backwards dragging the Maniac with her to the ropes. Once she gets her opponent to the ropes she bounces of and lifts him from the mat with the pure force of her stomach, she manages to flip his body over so that she is on top pinning the Madman.
Matt: Albion going for an incredibly hard attack, that frankensteiner took it’s toll I bet.
Alissa: What are you doing? She's taking you down, teach her how is the real boss here!!!
The Maniac forces Albion away from him by pushing her towards the ropes, she knows that he is pissed and willing to do anything and that is her moment to get the upper hand. She’s playing him like a fiddle and like so he charges at her for a spear, Albion does not need to do much to avoid the strike because she only has to go lower than him and throw him with her back but what she did not count on was for her opponent to land of his two feet resulting on him kicking her on the back with his left leg forcing her to go down on her two feet.
Mark: Now that is thinking on your feet, Dave was getting thrown to the mat by Albion but he managed to maintain his balance and kick her back forcing her to drop to her knees. That is A grade level of fighting.
Dave does not give her a second to think about it, he quickly traps her arm with his right extending it and that is when he starts to rain down elbows on her collar bone. Each elbow is made to land hard on her collar bone injuring her neck and muscles, the sheer force of the strikes is what leaves her dazed an unable to react once again.
Matt: The madman is clearly angry, see him destroy Albion... he must be taking out every frustration on her.
Albion tries to move but Dave keeps striking her down, she uses every ounce of her strength to move. Slowly she starts to throw her elbow back to his kidney section, she continues doing this while her sore collar bone starts to feel like it is unable to move. Albion has to do something right this moment, her elbows start to equal Dave’s strength and on one single moment O’Connor stops the elbow strikes making Gale think she did it but she could not be more wrong. The Madman grabs her by the waist lifting her up and effortlessly throwing her over his head far away from her previous position, this makes her hit the mat so hard that she bounces of it flipping her body over landing on her knees.
Mark: Albion still standing! She is hurt but she is not out! Look at the agility.
Alissa: One more time, come on!
The two enemies cross stares, their blood feud is palpable as their hatred boil up to the surface, yes the Madman is a handful for the Duality of Woman. They both stand up and rush towards each other, the Maniac lifts his left leg gathering momentum quickly throwing his right leg forward. Albion sees this and goes under Dave, this allows her to bounce back from the ropes with more strength throwing her leg at the face of her challenger making him hit the mat at full force.
Matt: Damn! Did someone got the license plate of the truck? Dave just got Wacked!!
Mark: Back to black! That was one Albion’s hardest move, did it take the Maniac down?
Dave rolls out of the ring quickly to gather himself, he clears the cobwebs from his face and just as he turns around a flying Albion comes flipping from over the top rope. The move is to quick that Dave barely grabs onto Albion and fall back to the floor making his head bounce; Albion might have executed the move but she is not uninjured, she grabs her back in pain while the Madman screams in pain.
Mark: Albion pulling all the stops trying to take that man down, her fury is enough to do everything she’s got.
Both wrestlers twist and turn around on the floor as they are badly injured, Alissa walks over to her husband hoping to do something for him but the quiet wrestler at the other side stands up like a sentinel. He stares at her walking over to stop her if she’s out of line, Alissa lifts her arms up showcasing she’s not doing anything and so the Masked Man returns to his kneeling seiza position meditating.
Alissa: Get up babe!
Matt: That damned samurai did not allow Alissa to help her husband up...
Mark: Right ‘cus that’s all she’s going to do.
Matt: You always think the worse out of people.
Mark: And you are just thick as shit.
Dave extends his arm signaling Alissa to step back, he is breathing deeply as he is beaten and tired but he is not done. The Madman gets into a three and using the apron he manages to stand up right next to Albion and when he sees her right next to him, he grabs a handful of her hair and slams her head repeatedly against the apron.
Mark: The Maniac going at Albion slamming her head on the apron, that is going to give her a concussion!
Dave knows he is injuring the head of Albion and that is when he heard the referee count to six, he stops his attacks and rolls the dazed champion into the ring as she no longer knows where is up or down. Closely he rolls in stopping the count at seven while the crowd boo at O’Connor. He uses every ounce of adrenaline he has got on his body to get next to his opponent, deadlift her of the mat by the waist and in a single swift move throws her over his head far away from the previous position.
Matt: That is the semblance of a true fighter, look at him he is not done until it is all done.
Albion hits the mat on her back and tries to crawl away towards the ropes to regain her breath and while the referee looks at Dave with suspicion, Alissa rakes her eyes blinding her for a short moment. Meanwhile, Dave walks menacingly next to her and like a horror movie villain lifts her up by the waist horizontally only to throw her again over his head. Albion rolls in the air landing on top of the referee who hits the mat hard, the Champion does not know what just happened and just before Dave can run over to her to inflict more pain she rolls out of the ring.
Mark: Holy cow! Dave just took out the referee, that must have been intentional.
Matt: What? That was an obvious miscalculation, Dave did not count on the referee being there.
Mark: Ooooh… you know he is cheating, don’t lie.
Albion rolls out standing with the help of the ring apron, she swears she is near The Phoenix and away from Alissa but as she turns around a sudden single legged dropkick lands on her face sending her to the floor. Alissa manages to stands up quickly celebrating her attack on the champion but it is cut short as The Phoenix has something in store for her, he jumps from the steel steps wrapping his legs around her head throwing the Madman’s wife away protecting Albion.
Matt: The Phoenix striking hard on Alissa, don’t hurt her man… she’s cute.
Mark: She just got herself in the middle of the match.
Matt: That was payback for all the slander Albion has been throwing at them.
Not being out done Alissa stands up and quickly goes for both legs of the highflier wrestler and as The Phoenix falls to the floor Alissa starts raining punches at him, meanwhile the referee starts to get up clearing the cobwebs from his head and Albion starts to recover from the attack.
Mark: Albion’s wildcard worked perfectly, Alissa is busy with The Phoenix.
The champion sees the Madman’s wife attacking her former manager’s half-brother and rushes towards her slamming her feet to her face, Dave quickly reacts going to the apron and throwing his fist at Albion’s face sending her to the guard rail and when he lands he quickly turns around and slams his heel at Phoenix’s face cleaning out the scramble.
Matt: Do you see how Dave clears out the scramble, his agility is unlike any other wrestler in the company.
The referee finally recovers and sees the scramble, he notices Phoenix and Albion in the middle of it all. His seniority allows him to know what is going on and immediately he points to both wrestlers and signals them to go back to gorilla position, forcing Dave and Alissa to scream in anger.
Mark: There they go, Alissa is pissed, look at her screaming... finally someone does something about them.
Alissa: WE WILL FUCK YOU UP, YOU HEAR ME? WE... WILL.. FUCK... YOU... UP!
The crowd chant “Na, na, naaaa, na, hey hey now, goodbye” angering the Madman’s wife more, she retaliates by saying she’ll be back. Meanwhile, Dave grabs Albion by the head in a Muay Thai plum and starts driving his knee at her face, once again her ears start ringing because her head has been through a lot. The face of pure anger is what amazes everyone, as Dave is stiffly taking out all his frustrations on Albion. When he thinks it is enough, he grabs her by the head with the plum and throws her at the steel steps forcing her head to bounce from them. Dave is taking out everything he has inside, his frustrations, his anger and his madness on Albion.
Matt: What will happen now Dave is taking out everything he has inside, his frustrations, his anger and his madness on Albion. What will happen now.
Mark: The way Dave is working on the head of Albion is enough to injure anyone, that biel throw surely gave her a concussion.
Slowly Albion tries to stand up but once the pouncing Maniac sees this, he runs at her and slams his foot on her face pushing the steps away again with her head. The Madman celebrates as the crowd loudly boo’s at him, the whole arena is angry at him but he does not care so when he hears the referee count to five he grabs Albion by the head and throws her in with force with him close by.
Matt: Albion will be having a bad hangover tomorrow.
Suddenly Albion gets a second wind and screaming in desperation runs towards her challenger kicking him in the gut and when he bends over she starts raining clubs to his back, angry, desperate clubs with both hands that make the Madman scream in pain. In quick response Dave pushes her to away but she is a rabid animal, she runs at him extending her arm taking both of them to the mat.
Mark: Albion getting a second wind... how long will it last and will it be enough for Dave to go down?
Quickly Albion hooks her arm around his head and gets up with him trapped in a headlock, she lifts Dave up vertically falling backwards to the mat soon after.
Matt: How is this possible? She was out!!
Mark: Albion is teaching Dave why she’s our Supreme Champion.
Dave is desperate and quickly stands up, he was winning and now this woman is angry as hell. Albion once again strikes the gut of Dave, this allows her to hold him in another headlock and this time instead of falling backwards, she turns him around falling in a seating position as Dave hits the mat with his back. Dave screams in pain but Albion is not done, she clubs away the gut of Dave repeatedly taking out what ever little air he had in his lungs.
Mark: Albion is desperate, she’s going for everything that can injure the Madman.
Soon the clubs stop raining and Albion stands up, she is mad and willing to do anything to win so she continues on kicking the gut of Dave. Each strike takes out more air and he is unable to keep enough air in to carry on, he needs to get out and easily he rolls away to the corner where he sits up grasping for air.
Matt: Damn! Not even Danny Diamond got her this angry.
Mark: Alissa and Dave are both assholes that deserve this.
Albion does not want Dave to gather himself, so she runs at the corner and jumps from the mat throwing her two feet at his face. The missile dropkick hits right where Albion wanted and he is out of it, this would be a good moment for a pin but Albion wants more. She puffs for air while Dave stares at her with fury, they are both tired soon they are both kneeling face to face. They both get up and start throwing punches at each other, angry desperate punches while they stand up.
Matt: Can you hear that? The sound those punches are making is chilling.
For each punch one throws the other responds in similar fashion, both are trying to get the other down for a count but neither will budge an inch. Dave then throws his right hand at her throat cutting of air, then he grabs her by the waist and lifts her up sending her to his side in a rice bale throw. Now with him on top and in control he starts raining forearm smashes to her head, each one striking on her injured head, Albion is angry and with a move unlike her she scratches his eyes forcing him to step away.
Mark: Albion is one angry woman, she just turned to her violent side and will do anything to win.
Matt: Dave is far more ruthless and now the he has nothing to lose he has to win.
Dave steps away cleaning his eyes as Albion also stands up screaming at him to bring it, she wants more, she needs to not only beat him but humiliate him. Dave does not take this lightly and rushes towards her flying in the air while lifting his knee to drive it hard to her face, she knows this was going to happen so she responds by also rushing forward with her right leg forward.
Mark: ALBION COUNTERING THE FLYING KNEE WITH BACK TO BLACK! THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!
Dave gets thrown back in anger because Albion avoided the Flying Knee by countering it with a Back to Black in what seems to be a desperation attack but she is not done, the attack continues as she starts to deliver chops to his chest. Each chop is loud and deadly, making Dave scream out in pain but he can take it he just needs to grab onto her arms and take her down.
Matt: Those chops really do sound nasty.
When a chop finally lands on his chest Dave he goes for the arm and hold it tight with his right hand, Albion sees what is happening and she tightens her arm to avoid the kimura lock. She screams in pain and desperation as Dave goes for the submission.
Mark: Albion using whatever strength she has left to avoid the Kimura Lock! She is in pain just doing it.
Matt: That is amazing, she is using sheer willpower... kick her in the groin Dave!
O’Connor is doing everything to execute the move and once he is close to Albion she responds to Dave by smashing him in the head with her forehead, this is enough for the Maniac to let go of the attempt and walk back while holding his nose. Albion smiles as she sees the Madman walk away from her in pain.
Matt: What the actual fuck? That was something unlike her!
Mark: She's tired and desperate... she’ll do anything to win now.
Albion takes in a deep breath as she is tired enough from the bout that anything more seems too much but she goes in for more, she jumps off the mat towards Dave trying to drive him to the mat but O’Connor counters by smashing his forearm to the back of her head and after a fifth one she lets go.
Matt: This is test of constitution, both wrestlers are at their limits but their prides won't let them loose!
Albion walks away as Dave leans taking in air, he then spots his target and rushes towards her using her gut as a stepping stone. He then lifts his knee to her face and smashes it on her chin throwing her down to the mat for a pinfall, which her just drops to cover.
Mark: Step up knee! That must have taken her out with all those concussions she must have suffered.
Just before the referee counts to three Albion grabs a handful of tights and flips Dave over leaving him on his elbows for the pin.
Matt: Albion reversing the pin at the last second, wow!
Dave manages to push Albion away from him at the last second to avoid the pinfall, she hits the mat in anger thinking at why she could not keep the Madman down once and for all. Both take in deep breaths but the Duality of Woman is not done, she sits on top of him and starts slamming his head on the mat repeatedly. The slams might not be hard but the bumping around is enough to daze anyone, the slams are of desperation as the face of Albion can show.
Mark: This is just desperation, Albion is slamming Dave’s head repeatedly.
Matt: Nothing left in your arsenal? That is just sad.
She lets go of the slams when she thinks that is enough to leave him on the mat for a moment, Albion runs at the ropes and uses them to gather momentum and jump from the third rope while flipping in the air. This is it she thinks but Dave moves away at the last moment letting her land face first on the mat, she grabs her head in pain but it does not matter Dave takes hi change and rolls her up for the pin.
Mark: Albion and Dave exchanging pins but nothing will stick, what will happen now?
Albion kicks Dave away and while both of them rest on the middle of the ring the crowd chants for Albion to win, she’s giving it her all but is it enough for an animal like Dave?
Matt: I got to accept when I do not know who’s going to win but neither has had a chance to execute a finisher, they are giving the other no chance to do anything.
Mark: Dave did go for the Flying Knee.
Matt: And that got countered with a Back to Black.
Albion and Dave use the ropes to stand up, they slowly start to climb their way upwards while staring at each other.
Mark: Feel the intensity, this is a match that in pushing both to the limits... hardcore rules is the only thing that remains.
When they are both standing, they take in deep breaths. They both know this is their last chance to destroy the other, with this in mind they charge at each other. Dave jumps of the mat and throws his knee forward, he’s targeting her face in traditional Muay Thai fashion. Albion responds by extending her arm for a lariat to his gut but as they grow closer, she misses and the knee hits her hard on the face sending both of them to the mat.
Matt: Flying knee! Flying knee! This is it! No one can get out of that... it’s his devastation move... new supreme XWA champion!!!
Slowly Dave crawls towards his target, he is not well and this is taking time from the pinfall but he has to take his chance. With all his effort he drops his hand top of Albion’s chest barely covering her, the referee rushes in to do the count.
Mark: KICKOUT! KICKOUT! Albion is doing it! She is resisting the Madman’s most lethal move and Dave is in shock, look at his face! HA!
Dave stares at the referee amazed signaling three while he signals two, Albion is amazed about her accomplishment so she starts to laugh while she lies down.
Matt: Why is Albion is laughing? How is she is still alive?
Dave picks up the Duality of Woman who goes on to spit on his face angering him, Dave retaliates the insult with a throat thrust sending her back. She is hunched and barely alive, she laughs at her opponent signaling him to bring it.
Mark: Albion soldiering up for the win, she is pushing herself to the limit!
Dave starts throwing punches at her gut repeatedly, each punch is a grenade at this point but she will not give in. Albion maintains her position by sheer force of will and when she gets a chance, she returns the attack with an uppercut that hits Dave on the chin making him walk back. Once again Albion asks Dave for more as blood has started to come out of her mouth, he goes in to the ropes getting momentum and returns by jumping from the mat once again sending his knee forwards striking Albion a second time.
Matt: TWO! Two Flying knees, no one stand up from that!
As Dave rolls up using the ropes so does Albion, she stays hunched screaming in desperation for Dave to hit her one more time if he dares. She is dazed and angry, she knows that this could be it but still she screams in total desperation asking him if he’s got the balls to do it.
Mark: Albion asking for more punishment! She’s pushing Dave’s buttons... What is she hoping to accomplish?
Albion continues the taunt by saying that he’s nothing without Alissa ending it with just the phrase you are her bitch, Dave screams in anger rushing at Albion with a third flying knee that lands perfectly on her face. O’Connor stays up with help from the ropes and then he just lets his body fall on top of hers, he is out of ideas and if she kicks out, he has no idea what to do. All these thoughts rush by his head while the referee rushes in to do the count.
Matt: THREE Flying knees! That should be considered murder!
Mark: She can muster up the strength to kick out of a third Flying Knee.
The referee signals the bell to ring as Dave has finally done it.
DING, DING, DING!
Dave and Albion continue in the middle of the ring as they do not know if it is over or not, then O’Connor sees his price, the XWA Supreme Championship, and he stands up to grab it with both hands.
Hana: The winner of this match and NEW SUPREME XWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOON.... "The Maniac" Daaaaaaaaaaaaave Ooooo'Coooooooooonnooooooooooooor.
Matt: Told you he was too much for her.
The crowd boo in response to the Madman’s win, he holds the title up high celebrating not giving a damn about the crowd. He tries getting of the ring but, at the last second, he stops and remembers that Albion is there on the mat. He points to his title saying that this is his now, he then kneels and starts punching her face hoping to get a response. He starts to deliver forearm smashes to her face making her bleed out of her mouth more, the small pool starts to get bigger as the punches come down raining hard on her injured head.
Mark: What the hell Dave? You won! Walk away... why are you smashing her head?
The referee comes in to take him away but Dave is in trance, he has to see her brutally destroyed and the only way to see that is by smashing her head in. As more people come down the ramp to take Dave away, he continues to slam his fist on her face and until about five people push him away are EMT’s able to get in the ring taking Albion from the scene. Then the Madman speaks loudly at Albion.
Dave: Stay away bitch, the title is mine and mine alone. Tell Bella our time has come and we will not be denied our glory!
With those words Gold Rush comes to an end forcing people to wonder what will happen now that the Madman is the top wrestler in XWA.
