Re: XWA Massacre - Hardy vs. Krull!

Postby Alex_Krull » Sun Jun 21, 2015 7:40 pm

As we return from the scheduled break we take a look at the sold out crowd at San Antonio, Texas before settling in on Mark Sanction, Rose and Matt Steel.

Mark Sanction:
Welcome back to Monday Night Massacre, next up is the last championship defense before Winner Takes All for the Hardcore Championship.

Rose:
Laurel Anne Hardy will have to defend her title against The Viking, Alex Krull.

Matt Steel:
In his first match Krull defeated our very own Mac Villain showing that he can take a beating.

Mark Sanction:
Alex has shown us he’s got what it takes to win and is willing to give it all but now, he must fight our reluctant champion using all off his strength and power to overcome the agile Hardy. Ladders, chairs, pipes and barbed wire are all allowed here, Krull must withstand all the punishment that the champion can to give.

Rose:
Alex Krull will surely bleed in this match; the question is how much can he take?

Matt Steel:
My money is on Krull, The Viking will show us why his race is made up of such fierce warriors.

Hana Ramirez:
Next match if for the XWA HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP!

The Lights start to flicker red and blue just as the initial guitar riffs from Nobuo Uematsu’s Otherworld hit the PA system, Alex Krull makes his way from backstage with an angry look on his face, barbed wire in his left hand and a water bottle on his other hand.

Hana Ramirez:
Coming down the ring is the challenger, from Oslo Norway weighing in 246 pounds…

Krull pours the bottle on his head and screams in anger making his way to the ring.

Hana Ramirez:
…he is The Viking… ALEX! KRUUUUULL!

A mixed reaction can be heard from the crowd as Krull climbs the steel steps onto the ring apron. The Viking climbs to the second rope and screams in anger one more time while we flexes his muscles displaying his strength.

Rose:
After his last match with Villain Alex learned something, come armed to the ring. He looks ready for a beating.

Matt Steel:
He’s got to if he wants to beat Laurel Anne Hardy for the Championship.

Alex leaves the barbed wire on his corner; his face shows determination even if his body trembles with fear as this type of matches are not his style. He walks around the ring waiting for his opponent looking and analyzing everything that is around the ring since it can be used as a weapon, he will not back down it is a question of honor.

As Shonen Knife's "Cookie Day" hits the speakers, Laurel Anne Hardy bursts straight through the curtain, screaming with pure energy. After a moment she emerges with a shopping trolley woven through with tinsel and stacked high with weapons, all decorated with glitter and bright paint.

Hana Ramirez:
From Rhyl, Wales, she weighs 148 pounds... The Coan-Teen. The Matriarch of the #Sparklebuddies. The Living, Breathing Installation Event of the Millennium... and she is the REIGNING! and DEFENDING! XWA Hardcore Champion...

It wouldn't be fair to say crowd is all cheering now, but the boos the champion is receiving are getting completely drowned out by adulation.

After touring all around the guardrails, hugging fans and complimenting homemade signs, the champion parks her trolley by the ring steps. She pulls out an electronic beeper and "locks" the cart before clambering into the ring. Hardy slides into the ring and runs up a corner where she poses before pulling off her brightly coloured feather boa and tossing it into the crowd, prompting a scrum to catch it.

Hana Ramirez:
LAUREL! ANNE! HAAAARRRDAAYYYYYY!

Laurel drops to a sitting position and headbutts the top of the ringpost to hype herself up, then pops back to her feet and straight into a backflip down to the middle of the ring where she takes a deep, theatrical bow.

Alex watched this with a smirk, she seems to be all preppy and he is not amazed by it.

Rose:
Laurel has come far more prepared for this match than The Viking.

Matt Steel:
Look at his face, he is not amazed. He was hoping for a fighter and got this preppy girl, we are in for one hell of a match, buckle up ‘cus this is going to hurt!

After hyping the crowd both wrestlers stare at each other and out of nowhere Krull hits the Champion with a punch to the face followed by several other punches to the face and stomach.

The bell rings…

Mark Sanction:
The Viking is going to work fast against the champion; Laurel will have to keep up fast.

Rose:
This isn’t her first rodeo, she can take it.

Matt Steel:
Alex is taking advantage of his size and skill against his opponent.

The beat down continues on Laurel until she gets pushed hard into the corner, Alex stops hitting his opponent and holds her tight preparing for a Belly-to-Belly Suplex but is hit back with a headbutt to the nose. The challenger walks back putting one hand on his face while holding the other one in front of him.

Rose:
That’s gotta hurt.

While Rose talks, Laurel takes this chance and runs at Krull with a spear taking him down to the mat with her on top. The move is followed by sever brutal punches to the face of her opponent, Krull puts his hands up protecting himself from the blows which he does not see coming .

In a moment of delay The Viking pulls his left arm up blocking the oncoming right punch, puts his other arm over and around the neck of the champion and his legs round the waist of Laurel Ann Hardy locking her in a tight Guillotine Choke.

Mark Sanction:
Great counter by the challenger, he managed to counter that move into a perfect Guillotine Choke.

Laurel pushes herself out of the hold but Krull won’t let go so she moves to punch him in the side but that just makes him hold her tighter. The massive wrestler punches her on the side taking out all her air hoping that Laurel will tap out so he could get a quick win but instead she extends her right leg on to the ropes making the referee run at Krull to break the hold. He takes notice of this so he lets his legs go of her waist, gets up still holding Laurel’s head in the guillotine, puts her arm over his head and holds her leg performing a Fisherman Suplex.

Mark Sanction:
Fisherman Suplex by Alex Krull.

Rose:
The reigning champion just met the power of The Viking.

Both wrestlers lie down on the mat, Krull gets up first while Hardy can’t because she is winded by that move and needs to catch her breath. Taking advantage of this moment the challenger drops an elbow to the chest and goes for the quick count.

1...

Mark Sanction:
Elbow up by The Champion.

The Viking puts his arms around her waist and picks her up screaming, Laurel starts kicking and moving around hoping to get lose but Alex manages to get a proper hold on her and throws her over his head in a Gutwrench Suplex.

Rose:
Laurel is just getting tossed around the ring like bag of trash.

Matt Steel:
She is a bag of trash, don’t forget that.

While the commentators talk Laurel gets out of the ring and goes for her shopping cart.

Rose:
The champion knows she cannot win this one without some help.

She takes out a pipe covered in glitter from the cart and holds it up displaying it to the crowd, meanwhile Krull sees this and also gets out of the ring hoping to catch Laurel of guard. At the last second Laurel turns around and hits her opponent with the pipe on the forehead busting him open.

Mark Sanction:
Another hit to head by Laurel, if she wants to wear down the Viking she needs to hit him more.

Krull goes to the guard rail, on his knees and holds one hand over his now open forehead. Still dazed from the punch he gets up, turns around and is met with yet another hit to the face with the pipe. Making fall back to his knees again.

Rose:
Ouch! She is taking this moment to get the lead.

Laurel gets in the ring and runs to the top turnbuckle nearest to The Viking and signals the crowd getting a quick pop out of them, when Krull gets up Laurel jumps off towards him with a Diving Back Elbow which hits him right on the face making him bleed more. Alex and Hardy fall down to the unprotected isle both hurt by the recent move.

Mark Sanction:
Hardy goes up in the air and comes crashing down on Krull.

Hardy gets up first visibly hurt from the landing but manages to hit Krull with a knee to the face, this move she likes to call it Punctum. The challenger still on his knees grabs the leg of the champion and goes for a double leg take down pushing her down with his shoulder, he manages to transition this into a Fallaway Slam hitting her hard against the isle.

Matt Steel:
Great idea of from Krull but doesn’t he know, she is impervious to pain!

Krull is bleeding a lot but manages to walk over the steel steps and take the top part of them; he walks over to Hardy who is just getting up from the slam and starts hitting her hard with them once on the face and twice to her petite body.

Alex Krull:
You want me to go hardcore?

Krull hits her one more time on the face busting her open. The Viking rolls into the ring with an even angrier look on his face, his eyes scream pain as he is willing to do anything to take down his opponent. He goes into his corner and takes the barbed wire wrapping it around his right arm. Meanwhile, Laurel gets up bleeding from her forehead and also slides into the ring and runs up to the challenger and only to get hit with a Lariat with the barbed wire arm. Laurel goes down and starts to laugh.

Rose:
What the hell is wrong with her?

Matt Steel:
She’s insane, too many bumps to the head remember?

Rose:
But laughter?

Mark Sanction:
She is laughing because she cannot get hurt, she’s used to much more than this.

Krull gets on top of her and starts punching her face, making her bleed even more while screaming in desperation. Hardy won’t stop laughing and manages to hit the challenger back making him get up from her.

Alex cannot believe what he is seeing Laurel is laughing after that much blood. He steps back in disbelief allowing enough space for her to get up.

The body of the Viking charges at Laurel but she turns around and delivers a devastating Roaring Elbow to the face and while Krull is regaining his senses she runs towards the ropes and charges back to kick her opponent with a Yakuza Kick to the face. Not feeling like he had enough Laurel follows the kick with a jump and a Pele Kick to the side of the head getting him down for good.

Rose:
Where did that come from?

While he grabs his head and tries to make the ringing stop, Laurel goes to the top of the ropes and signals the end of the match and performs a Corkscrew shooting star elbow drop she likes to call Stronger Than Dirt onto Krull.

Matt Steel:
NO! GET UP!

Rose:
Calm down, he is done for.

Laurel goes for the pinfall holding a leg up.

1…

2…

Mark Sanction:
Elbow up from the challenger…

Laurel decides to try it one more time so she goes for the ropes again and during that time Krull manages to get up and walk over to Hardy and without any effort he picks her up placing her on his shoulders on a Fireman Carry and displays her for the crowd while she kicks trying to get lose but all that effort only to gets her slammed to the mat by a Death Valley Driver.

Mark Sanction:
Death Valley Driver!

His left arm still locked onto her neck turns around the her back, places his legs around her waist one more time and starts to choke her with a Rear Naked Choke. Laurel is firmly hold in and right in the middle of the ring, she struggles trying to cut loose but she can’t. Although the barbed wire is cutting into Krull he won’t let go and waits for her to start fading out.

Laurel’s eyes start to close so Alex lets his legs and right arm lose moving them into her abdomen, he makes sure his right arm is next to her abdomen and presses the barbed wire against her stomach in a bear hug. Laurel starts to show signs of displeasure and it is then that she gets tossed into a German Suplex. Krull gets her leg up and locks the pin fall.

1…

2…

Mark Sanction:
Shoulder up by Hardy.

Krull is desperate that this little girl won’t go down so he starts taking of the barbed wire from his arm, which is bleeding a lot, while kicking Hardy on her hurt stomach. He tosses the barbed wire away and proceeds to picks up Hardy from her torso onto his shoulder and again he displays their mangled superstar to the crowd and proceeds to perform an Inverted Sitout Side Powerslam over the barbed wire.

Mark Sanction:
Viking Slam on top of the barbed wire!!!

As if that wasn’t enough He picks her up again onto his shoulders and slams her another time onto the barbed wire.

Rose:
Another one!

Still thinking she hasn’t had enough he picks onto his shoulders and slams her a third time onto the barbed wire, Hardy not moving gets flipped over with the barbed wire tied to her jumpsuit and body bloodied after the gruesome fight.

Krull gets up and places a foot over the Champion and the referee starts to count.

1…

2…

Th…

Mark Sanction:
Kick out by Laurel!

Rose:
Dear lord! How can she still be alive after that?

Krulls cannot believe what he is seeing, that little preppy girl will not give up. In desperation Alex goes out of the ring towards the announce table an grabs a chair, at the same moment Laurel is taking the barbed wire from her suit and body ripping some of it open. She spots Krull on the outside and goes towards him, as she slides out she is met to a chair to the face.

Alex Krull:
You won’t stay down?

Alex drives another chair to the head of the champion giving her a full crimson mask, he takes the chair and gives her a third chair shoot to her face for good measure. Alex tosses the chair to the side and hits Laurels face at the ring post, the champion is visibly out but somehow still walking.

Rose:
Some stop him!

Alex won’t hear the cries of the announcers, he just want the champion to give up so he grabs her in a Full Nelson and suplexes her into the floor with a Dragon Suplex.

Mark Sanction:
Dragon Suplex onto the floor by the challenger.

The Viking still holding the Full Nelson picks Hardy up and slams her face into the announcement table, he proceeds to remove the trash from on top of it and puts her head under his arm and delivers a painful Fisherman suplex that breaks the table. Both bodies lie broken on the floor battered and hurt from the move, both wrestlers get up at the same time but Laurel takes the advantage kicking Krull in the gut and puts him in a front butterfly with her knee resting against his throat and then drops on her ass performing a Winter Garden Photograph.

Krull crawls holding his throat and grabs towards the guard rail to get up with its help, Laurel takes her chance grabs the massive Vikings shoulders and performs a lungblower sending to the floor in pain.

Mark Sanction:
Lungblower!

That last move hurt Laurel a lot as her face displays it and the fact that she is now tired, Krull gets up but is still grasping for air. Taking advantage of the winded state of the challenger Laurel charges at Krull with a European uppercut making him hold his face in pain, she follows this move with her left arm pushing her opponents head down.

Mark Sanction:
Laurel is taking any chance she’s got to tire out the Viking.

While Krull holds his head trying to make sense of what is going on Laurel takes the chance and goes into the ring, takes some distance to be capable of jumping onto the turnbuckle and diving from the top rope performing a Whisper in the Wind onto the Viking.
Just as she was supposed to hit Krull he grabs her with both arms in the air, puts her under his right arm and with a Side Walk Slam makes her hit the floor hard making them both stay on the floor while they regain their senses.

Rose:
Oooh! She didn’t see that one coming

Mark Sanction:
Laurel gave enough space for the challenger to pick up the air he needed for that move.

Laurel visibly tired as this match has lasted longer than she expected is on the floor taking her breath longer than Krull, missing no opportunity he proceeds to pick her up from the stomach and presses her onto his chest with another belly to back Bear Hug, Laurel starts kicking and screaming but as time passes she starts to fade and in that moment Krull reverses the move into a Side Slam yet again into the floor

Matt Steel:
Krull treats Laurel like a rag doll.

Rose:
Yes, like a rag doll that won’t be pinned.

The challenger picks up Laurel and rolls her lifeless body into the ring and he follows soon after, tired Laurel gets up and tries hitting the Viking with punches to the face but is replied with a kick to the gut. The Viking puts her head in a standing Guillotine Choke pressing strongly against her neck, this time she doesn’t struggle as she is tired and done, Krull picks her up in a vertical position and displays his strength to the crowd while looking for the barbed wire and proceeds to slam her with his Delayed Vertical Suplex Powerslam he calls Axe Breaker.

Mark Sanction:
Axe Breaker by Krull.

Rose:
This time she’s done.

Krull goes for the quick cover with a leg up and the Referee counts.

1…

2…

3…

The referee signals the bell to ring as we have a new champion.

Hana Ramirez:
Ladies and gentlemen the winner and NEW! HARDCORE CHAMPION! ALEEEEEEEEX KRUUUUULL!

Matt Steel:
YES! That little girl got what she deserved, she is out!

Mark Sanction:
The Viking just left a motionless body on the ring.

Nobuo Uematsu’s Otherworld hits the PA system as Krull takes the championship and a mic.

Alex Krull:
Cut the music! This was your hardcore champion? I got something for you this is nothing! I came here to fight and all I’ve seen is nothing worth a Vikings honor, this championship is shit unless you give me something worth fighting. So, with that in mind I heard last Monday that a certain someone was coming back, a monster some of you called him, a monster but all I see is a man and a man can bleed, a man can be choked, a man can be destroyed.

Rose:
Is he gonna do what I think he is gonna do?

Krull makes a pause and starts screaming.

Alex Krull:
WHISPER!! I will do what others won’t, I will never back down and I will fight you and break you!! SO COME ON AND FIGHT ME!!!

The Viking drops the mic and takes his new championship out of the ring while Nobuo Uematsu’s Otherworld plays on the PA system.

Rose:
YES!!

Mark Sanction:
Alex has taken up Whispers challenge, will Whisper accept or will he back down?

Matt Steel:
God Damn it, The Viking just got himself into deep trouble, he will get his career finished if he is not careful.

Alex Krull gets the championship up in the air as he walks down the aisle shouting that he is the best and at that moment the screen starts fading to black as we go to another commercial break.

Re: XWA Massacre - Hardy vs. Krull!

Postby styg » Mon Jun 22, 2015 7:57 pm

There's a mixed reaction as the lights start to flicker red and blue. Cheers and boos alike mix with the initial guitar riffs from Nobuo Uematsu's "Otherworld" and Alex Krull makes his way from backstage with an angry look on his face and a water bottle in his right hand. He pauses on the ramp, looking around at the fans, then douses himself in water before screaming in anger.

Mark Sanction: A big win over Mac Villain last time for this young man, and now he has the opportunity to walk into Winner Takes All as XWA Hardcore Champion in the unification match against Gladiatorial Champion Razer and World Heavyweight Champion Jericho Shaw.

Rose: All that's in his way is the reigning Hardcore Champion. And although they have no particular issues with each other, we're surely in for an intensely violent match knowing who's involved.

A mixed reaction can be heard from the crowd as Krull climbs the steel steps onto the ring apron. The Viking climbs to the second rope and screams in anger one more time while he flexes his muscles displaying his strength. His music dies away as he paces around the ring, and cheers go up for Shonen Knife's "Cookie Day". Laurel Anne Hardy steps through the curtain and pauses, looking around the auditorium with a sly grin.

Matt Steel: Here's his hill to climb tonight. The Hardcore Champion doesn't even want to be in the title unification match - she's made that pretty clear. But she's also made it clear that she's not about to give up the Hardcore Championship without it being wrenched from her grasp.

Mark Sanction: Laurel Anne Hardy a big believer in the sanctity of wrestling for its own sake. Earlier tonight she called herself the only legitimate champion in XWA and said, essentially, that Razer and Shaw are beneath her.

Matt Steel: Easy for her to talk like that. If she meant it, she'd pass that Hardcore Championship to Alex Krull and let him worry about them, but she won't, will she?

Hardy throws out her arms then begins walking to the ring, slapping hands with fans along the way. As she slides under the bottom rope Krull sinks back into his corner, staring down at his opponent with that permanent anger he carries himself with. Laurel winks in his direction, which only seems to anger him... exactly, no doubt, as Hardy wanted.

Hana Ramirez: Ladies and gentlemen, this match is for the XWA HARDCORE! CHAMPIONSHIP!

Cries of delight echo around the auditorium.

Hana Ramirez: Introducing first, the challenger, from Oslo... weighing two hundred and forty-six pounds... The Viking, ALEX! KRULL!

There's that mixed reaction again; it probably doesn't help Alex's case that tonight he's facing probably the biggest fan favourite in XWA right now. And indeed, as Hana introduces her, she's almost inaudible over the cheering.

Hana Ramirez: And the reigning, and DEFENDING XWA Hardcore Champion... from Rhyl, weighing one hundred and forty-seven pounds... The Installation Event of the Millennium... LAUREL! ANNE HAAAARRDAAYYY!

Hardy takes a bow... and is kicked in the head by Alex, driving the crown of thorns into her scalp! She rocks back, sinking to one knee, as Hana bolts from the ring with a squeak and the ref calls for the bell. Alex moves in to press his opening advantage, but Laurel catches him with an ankle pick to drop him. She swarms over him with a couple of stiff Battlegrounds uppercuts; he responds with vicious elbow swipes. With the two fighters now both on the mat, they begin brawling, swapping fists and forearms. The Hardcore Championship has rolled away as the warriors focus on each other.

Rose: No feeling out, no lock-up! When you get two athletes who both live for violence, this is what happens!

The Norwegian rolls into mount and uses his vast and rangy frame to pin the champion down; she responds with a hard headbutt to the bridge of his nose. But Alex stays in place and pushes his forearm against her throat!

Mark Sanction: And already we see the toughness of Alex Krull! Very few people can shrug off a headbutt square to the face from Laurel Anne Hardy. Both of these wrestlers have incredible pain thresholds; I think it's going to take something special to end this one.

With the life being choked out of her this early in the match, Hardy grits her teeth and drives her knee into Krull's kidney over and over... and over... and over. He moves his arm at long last and forcibly pushes her shoulders down with his big palms.

ONE!

TWO!

THRE-

No! She manages, somehow, to twist one shoulder out of his grip. He goes for the same pin again, and once more Laurel drives her head back into his this time peppering his side with knees simultaneously. Alex's answer is to drill a knee of his own into Laurel's midsection, and as the impact doubles her over, he wraps his huge arms around her torso and peels her off the canvas. He hoists her clean into the air, and gets his bearings for a spinebuster or a powerslam; she tries to sandbag back down and drag him into a DDT, but he plants his trailing foot out behind himself firmly.

Mark Sanction: Krull using his hundred pound weight advantage effectively, blocking Hardy. She won't be able to lift him and throw him like she could with Declan James or Axle Aomori - and The Viking is going to take advantage of that at every opportunity he gets.

Rose: She knows that too, though. People often forget, on top of the violence and nihilism, how smart Laurel is. She's not coming into this without offence in mind.

Matt Steel: But she's obtuse and stubborn as hell too. Not being able to do something is all the motivation she needs to try it.

Laurel hangs off Alex, pulling down as hard as she can, but it's still not enough to overbalance him. With a roar, he powers upright and swings her over his shoulders! But she catches him off guard by following through, rolling around until her legs are wrapped around his face. As his hands move up to pry her off, her fingers claw a grip around his and she twists him into a straightjacket.

Mark Sanction: DOORS OF PERCEPTION! A standing variant of the Doors of Perception!? The move she won the Hardcore Championship with!

Rose: And if she can make Alex white out right now, she'll retain with it! Like I said, smart.

To his credit, Krull isn't panicking, but he is acutely aware of the danger he's in. He stops, uses whatever focus he has left in the face of the consuming pressure surrounding his head to take stock... and drops to a sitting position, flipping Hardy overhead and spiking her into the mat between his knees with a cradle driver! He holds her in place for the cover.

ONE!

TWO

THRE-

She powers out. Alex goes to drag her into a grapple, but Laurel catches him with a stiff heel to the jaw, then another to the temple. For a moment they both pause to catch their breath and let their bodies process the savage opening to the match. It's apparent by now that Laurel's black hair has streaks of blood matted into it, no doubt there courtesy of the challenger's monstrous opening move.

Mark Sanction: Again, just witness the pain threshold and the determination of Alex Krull. That driver must have wrenched his neck absolutely agonisingly given the way Laurel Anne Hardy was clamped around it, but he still nailed it.

Matt Steel: Either he's got the pain threshold of a brick wall or he's too crazy to care... either way, perfect Hardcore Champion material!

Rose: Until it gets unified with the World Heavyweight and Gladiatorial Championships at Winner Takes All, that is. And supposing Alex Krull wins here tonight and does walk into our next pay-per-view as Hardcore Champion, we have to ask how that would affect Jericho Shaw and Razer, since they've spent several weeks of planning now assuming they'd be joined by Laurel Anne Hardy.

Mark Sanction: It's tricky...

Matt Steel: To rock a rhyme?

Mark Sanction: ...Hardy certainly more of the known quantity between herself and Alex Krull, but at the same time, it might be in their interests to face someone a little less... chaotic than Laurel Anne Hardy.

Matt Steel: To rock a rhyme that's right on time?

While Mark and Rose ignore Matt, Alex rolls under the bottom rope shaking his head clear of the cobwebs. He makes a beeline for the commentators' table and ignores their protests as he tips it sideways, sending cups, papers and god knows what else our trio had on their desk flying across the ground. He hauls the table into the air and carries it over to the ring... but as he's placing it, his opponent sails over the top rope and splashes him into the floor!

Mark Sanction: Hardy with the pescado!

Matt Steel: Pescardy?

Mark Sanction: Did you see the way Krull's head bounced on the concrete? Nasty.

Rose: No sympathy. Serves him right for stealing our table. Where am I meant to rest my drink now?

Matt Steel: Not to mention my statistics cheat sheet for colour commentary...

Mark Sanction: Wait. You're the colour commentator?

Matt Steel: Hell did you think I was doing out here?

Rose: Good question.

Hardy gets to her feet again. On instinct, she goes to drag Krull upright, but it's immediately apparent that he's too heavy, and she drops his arm. Instead she climbs up onto the apron, looking to dive back onto him - but he's up! Alex is up after her, fighting through the pain he's in to grab her in a chokehold! Laurel makes to kick him in the grill, but he yanks her down into a butterfly clutch. He swings her up into a fireman's carry; she tries to move around him for the vertical Doors of Perception again, but he staggers away from the edge of the ring... he throws her out and drives her down into the guardrail with the back of her neck connecting with the steel!

Rose: Death Valley driver! Death Valley driver into the guardrail!

Alex drags Hardy back to the table by the hair. He lifts her up into a bear hug.

Mark Sanction: Oh my god! Despite his temperament and his size Alex Krull is a hell of a technician. He's got a breathtaking array of grapples and throws... as the champion is discovering!

Krull turns around so his back is facing the erstwhile commentary table and, with another furious roar, throws himself backwards... the belly to belly sends Laurel crashing through the wood, and a burst of splinters erupts around her. Alex grabs a handful of them in his palm and mashes them into the Hardcore Champion's face until blood is spattered across it. From there, he lifts her back up, and simply holds her upside down in a Tombstone bearhug and starts walking around ringside.

Matt Steel: Krull just toying with Hardy now. This guy's cold blooded. I like him!

Mark Sanction: It's not just toying; the blood's rushing to her head, and with all those fresh cuts on her face, that's bad news for her.

Indeed, as The Viking parades around, crimson drips fall from the wounds on her head from the opening kick while scarlet rivulets flow down her face. As he reaches a corner Krull pauses, backs up with her... he runs her spine-first, upside down, into the ringpost! The thump echoes throughout the auditorium causing more than a few people in attendance to wince. Krull finally lets go, and Hardy flops down to the ground, left upside down and slumped against the ringpost. Alex wastes no time at all; he starts laying in boots even before she's come to a rest, and soon she's in a lifeless heap. He drags her back up and, perhaps rather gratuitously, slams her facefirst into the apron before rolling her - no, correction, shoving her - under the bottom rope. He follows after her, drags her to the middle of the canvas so she's far from any potential rope breaks, and covers.

ONE!

TWO!

THR-

Hardy pushes sideways, and a huge cheer goes up from the fans.

Mark Sanction: Again - she wants someone to take the Hardcore Championship from her, but she refuses to stay down! There's nobody in XWA who can absorb more punishment than the Hardcore Champion. We've already seen some unbelievable offence from Alex tonight, but it's going to take more still to put Laurel away.

Matt Steel: I'm okay with this. I could watch this big angry bastard beat on fools forever.

Perhaps predictably, Alex is as displeased at his opponent kicking out as he is at... well... everything, really. He draws his thumb across his throat and slides back out, and flips up the apron. He grins and slides out - you guessed it - another table! Displaying his incredible strength, he heaves it over the top rope and into the ring.

Matt Steel: Something tells me he's not going to use that to replace our desk that he broke.

Rose: Laurel's weakness is her stamina. Alex wants to press the offence, not give her any chances to recuperate.

In fairness, Alex isn't out for long, as a moment later he re-enters the ring with a steel chair in one hand, and in the other... a length of chain.

Mark Sanction: That's used to lock up the crates the ring is stored in for travelling! The ring crew must've left it under there!

Matt Steel: Probably because they knew there was a Hardcore Championship defence here tonight...

As Krull stands back up between the ropes, Hardy pushes herself from a kneeling position and bolts at him with a closed fist to the mouth. He's rocked by it, his head jerking sideways, but he powers back and shoulder barges her flat. He pushes back upright - and Laurel kips up and follows through to swing into a capoeira kick! Her heel smashes into Alex's jaw and he drops to one knee again, stunned. Hardy follows up her strike with a volley of kicks and knee strikes, all aimed squarely at the big man's head, the finally drops him prone with a back superkick to the dome.

Rose: Here's exactly what I was saying. Laurel's veterancy showing; Alex took his eyes off her, and she capitalised. And I have the feeling that all the hurt he just put on her is about to come back at him.

Laurel drops a hard knee across Alex's temple; rather than spike it, she just holds it there, digging down to put more pressure on the head. She slams a couple of elbow jabs in for good measure.

Matt Steel: Damn, she's gonna give him a concussion!

Mark Sanction: So much of her offence targets the head. And against someone like Alex, whom she can't hope to match in strength or reach, ringing his bell and keeping him from making quick decisions is vital to her strategy.

Eventually, as Alex starts fading, Laurel backs up. Then... she hunkers down and grabs the chain he brought into the ring. She circles back halfway around him for the best positioning...

Mark Sanction: Oh my god! Don't do it, Laurel!

...but Mark's frantic calling is for naught. Laurel screams a blood-curdling war cry through her crimson mask and begins whipping Alex with the chain, dragging blazing red welts out of his back with every lash.

Rose: We've seen some sickening things in this ring, but this...

It doesn't take long for gashes to start splitting open in Alex's back, and blood and plasma start seeping through. At this point Laurel finally ditches the chain; she backs into a corner and measures The Viking as he starts to try to get some semblance of focus back. Laurel hops up onto the bottom turnbuckle, still watching him... middle turnbuckle, still watching him... top turnbuckle, still watching him. Alex gets to all fours, and that's when she leaps off and drives both her knees into his bleeding back! He screams as she crushes him into the canvas, and he rolls onto his side with his chest juddering. Laurel kicks him all the way over and drops across him for the cover.

ONE!

TWO!

THR-

The kickout is authoritative enough to send Hardy right into the air!

Matt Steel: Holy crap! Alex's back looks like pulled pork and he still literally THREW Laurel off him!

Mark Sanction: It's a rare athlete that can take that kind of punishment and keep on going!

Alex rises to one knee; Laurel comes in with a shining wizard to send him reeling. But he doesn't go all the way down. Laurel hunkers down in the corner and scouts him. Slowly, wheezing, Alex forces himself up... and that's when Laurel pounces.

Mark Sanction: SPEAR!

Rose: BICYCLE KICK!

The force of Alex pumping a sole out as he jumps up sends Laurel literally somersaulting head over heels into the air! As she lands, Alex scrambles over her and covers.

ONE!

TWO!

Kickout. Krull sinks back to recover while Hardy rolls on the ground, dazed.

Rose: The boot to the face out of nowhere very impressive from the challenger, but still not enough. I'll bet with his back mashed up the way it is, he's having trouble putting pull power into covers.

After slapping herself in the side of the head a couple of times Laurel sits up. She takes a couple of deep breaths then crosses over to Alex and comes in for a closed fist...

...he swings the chair up! An almighty CLANG echoes throughout the arena as it meets her skull. For a moment both wrestlers are frozen in a diorama, and then slowly, she topples backwards like a felled tree leaving dots of blood hanging in the air momentarily. With a vicious snarl on his face. Alex sets the chair up between the middle and top turnbuckles, and rams Laurel headfirst into it.

Matt Steel: If she wanted him angry, she got it.

With Hardy down, the challenger sets up that second table, and as Laurel staggers back upright and turns towards him, he clocks her with a lariat to send her flipping upside down once again. The Angry Norwegian drags The Matriarch of the #Sparklebuddies up in a full nelson... pauses for just long enough to bellow in triumph at the fans... and throws her backwards through the table with a dragon suplex! Hardy's left lifeless in the twisted wreckage of a second table, but not for long as Alex drags her out and rolls over with both legs hooked.

ONE!

TWO!

THRE-

Mark Sanction: SHOULDER UP!

Rose: I don't believe it! Second table and the champion still kicked out!

As Krull pounds the mat in frustration, Hardy drags herself towards the ropes.

Mark Sanction: What's it going to take for one of these competitors to put the other away!?

Laurel tries to get her breath back; Alex snatches up something from the canvas which had been forgotten about, at least in body if not in essence.

Matt Steel: The crown of thorns... Alex has that metal crown of thorns!

Indeed he does. He snatches up the chain, too, and proceeds to tie the one weapon to the other.

Mark Sanction: A circle of jagged metal on the end of a chain. Now THAT might be enough for one of these competitors to put the other away...

Rose: How many times have we seen that circlet used as a weapon since Laurel unveiled it?

Matt Steel: I don't know, since Alex stole our table! My notes are all over the place...

Rose: The fact you kept track of it says it all, really.

When Alex is satisfied with his impromptu creation, he starts twirling it... round and round, round and round... until it's sailing in a big circle around his head. He swings it down at Hardy, and she only just manages to avoid it... the first time, at least! Krull just swings it back around and catches her in the side, with enough force to rock her off her feet. Blood spurts from her ribcage.

Matt Steel: Look at the referee, he doesn't want to be anywhere near Alex right now!

Mark Sanction: I don't blame him.

Laurel goes for a low spear, ducking under the chain's arc; it's not enough to floor Alex, but it's enough to make his arm falter. Laurel starts laying in any body blow she can. But Alex smacks her with the chain in his hand, and she drops to one knee. He hauls his weapon in close and rears back to deck her again.

Mark Sanction: This may be it...

With everything she's got left, Laurel grabs the chain and ducks through Alex's legs! Using the chain for leverage, she pumphandles him off balance and kicks him down. He discards the chain so his hands are free to steady himself, but she steps up into his bleeding back and drops across the back of his head in a senton! The force drives his face down...

Mark Sanction: RIGHT INTO THE CHAIN! RIGHT INTO THE CROWN!

Matt Steel: Hehehehehe...

Rose: What's so funny?

Matt Steel: She just wiped her ass on him.

But it's no joke for Alex Krull right now; as he looks up, he's got spurts of blood pouring down his face! Laurel remains sitting on top of him as she bends down to pick up her Hardcore Championship. She holds it against Alex's face, then starts wrapping the chain around it, his head, AND her own calves!

Mark Sanction: And now The Doors of Perception again! She's pulling that jagged metal crown tight into Alex's face!

Laurel gets the move locked in and leans back hard on the shredded flesh over his spine, screaming until her voice breaks as more blood washes down her face. Alex's own face is distorted by the crown pressed against it and the chain holding it in place... it digs in deeper and deeper as Laurel leans back further and further, applying more and more pressure...

...until finally it's enough to draw the submission!

The arena erupts as "Cookie Day" blares out and Laurel collapses off Alex. Both competitors lie still, the only motion being blood slowly seeping into the canvas until the referee starts freeing Alex's face from its steel link prison.

Hana Ramirez: Ladies and gentlemen, here is your winner, and STILL XWA Hardcore Champion... LAUREL! ANNE! HARDY!

Mark Sanction: Wow. Successful defence number four, yet another bloodbath surrounding the Hardcore Championship... and Laurel Anne Hardy is going to Winner Takes All. But at what cost to her own body has she secured a spot in a match she doesn't even want to be in?

Matt Steel: It's like I've said a million times, Mark... bitch be cray.

As medics arrive to tend to the competitors, the fans favour both of them with a standing ovation and a chant of "Thank you Laurel! Thank you Alex!"

I am in the middle of my hotel bar so I will make this brief. My vote is going to Laurel Anne Hardy.

If you both want feedback specifically let me know.

sorry its taken so long, had a fair few things on recently which required attending too.

My vote is with Laurel on this one.

Alex, you've got good ideas but it just seems like the flow is off a little at times when following the action of the match. The devil is in the detail and its those little bits which make RP's jump out. In places you had it, in other places it was missing and just hitting that right level does do wonders for an rp.

Thanks Razer, might be the case of me rereading and editing a lot... I added a lot of points after my first draft because I wanted a legendary match.

Thanks.

Next match I'll write something else.
