--- MIAMI, FLORIDA ---
The Miami International Airport was surprisingly quiet for this time of day, but still a fair few people were hauling suitcases and themselves in and out of gates and terminals, some boarding their planes and others getting off. Families were conversing, whilst lone travellers were checking out with their passports to confirm their arrival.
A simple figure stands out from the crowd though, also appearing to have just gotten off a plane touching down in Miami. The blonde streak in the man’s hair easily made him identifiable to observers of the wrestling world, as he rolled along a fairly heavy looking black suitcase with bright red headphones around his neck, the cord connecting to a phone within his trouser pocket. This was a fairly normal day for A.J Morales so far, as the reigning XWA Hardcore Champion walks past the few crowds of people that have gathered at the terminal and heads towards straight forward towards another gate.
It was almost instantaneous with his walking, the crowd of people seemingly getting thinner and thinner as they gathered elsewhere but it gave him some room to get to where he needed to be.--- MEANWHILE ---
At the entrance to Miami International Airport stood a fairly tall man with his hands firmly placed in his black leather jacket pocket, zipped up and all with dark shades to match the mysterious appearance of the man combined with light blue tight jeans and an old pair of converse trainers. In his right hand was a black zipped up guitar case, as he held it out to the floor. People brushed past him as he looked up towards the entrance, getting a few odd stares here and there but ultimately, he was at this airport for a reason, getting his phone out from his pocket and looking down at what appears to be a Twitter feed.???
And I thought it’d be hard to catch him… in a way I feel disappointed in him for giving away his location like this.
He smirked and took the fairly dark shades off, quickly folding them up and placing them in the left side pocket of his jacket, putting his phone in the right side pocket after turning it off. The identity of this man was clear from the wild hair and shit eating grin, the newest signee to XWA and current WCCW Television Champion, Will Neilson. With a scheduled Lord of the Ring match-up against Rivers King to look forward to, Neilson had realised that he had to find the man that had been leading him on a hunt for quite a while now. Announcing his intentions to challenge for the XWA Hardcore Championship, Will had a task and that was to find the current champion, A.J Morales, catch him off guard and walk away as champion heading into the Lord of the Ring tournament. In tow with Will was a referee clearly identifiable, needing him to start this Hardcore Championship match if he were to find Morales.
Neilson smiled at the thought of A.J easily giving away his location like this, not too long after saying to Will on Twitter that he would have to ‘catch him first’ before the Hardcore Championship match could take place. Neilson examined the amount of people entering and leaving the airport carefully, realising that a brawl in this environment could be trouble, however this was possibly his only chance to take out Morales and add another championship to his records. With an arrogant attitude to him and a hot head, the man known as the Great British Meme strolled into the airport where the automatic doors allowed him easy access, the referee following close behind.WILL NEILSON
I can wait all day A.J… all day.
Will walked into the airport and looked over at the many crowds of people shuffling around, leaning against a wall near the doors and looking out for his opponent. Neilson put down the case and unzipped it, taking out an acoustic guitar and holding it in his hands, slowly strumming it whilst waiting.WILL NEILSON
Blend in, stay out of sight.
He said this to the referee, but of course the referee wasn’t going to bossed around by Will, he simply stood away from Will. The stripes were easily identifiable, causing Will to look over and sigh.WILL NEILSON
I mean… he’s stupid enough to reveal his own location, just gotta keep the attention on myself.
Neilson continued to strum the guitar, playing a short tune as the referee patiently stood waiting with Will looking up and around for A.J.--- BACK TO OUR CHAMPION ---
A.J had made his way through customs, checking out and dragging the suitcase along with him to the entrance of the airport as he rubs his free hand over his face as a sign of jetlag. Morales gets closer to the door when something catches his eye, well… more than he heard something then made him raise his eyebrows and look over towards a wall, a lone man with his head down to the floor, slowly playing an acoustic guitar as Morales pushes his hair out of his face and looks closer at the guitarist, he looks all too familiar to him.A.J MORALES
This doesn’t feel right…
Morales took a glimpse to his right and saw the stripes of one of XWA’s officials nearby at the door leading outside, smirking and now being able to identify the man playing the guitar in front of him. A.J. slowly reached down and unzipped part of his suitcase, checking inside for something and nodding before taking the headphones from around his neck, detaching the cable from his phone and placing both in the suitcase. Morales shook his head and rolled up to the guitarist, who wasn’t doing a good job at concealing his identity.A.J MORALES
The man looks to see who’s in front of him, a worried expression fills his face as he looks away to try and regain his composure, the reigning XWA Hardcore Champion standing in front of him.MAN
C-come again?A.J MORALES
Oh. Wait a minute…
Within an instant, A.J reaches down into his slightly opened suitcase, deciding to undo the zip a bit more in order to reach in and pull out what he needed, that being the XWA Hardcore Championship itself. The guitarist slowly began to get off the wall, leaning his guitar against it, but keeping it in sight as he stood face to face with ‘The Revolution’. Morales threw the title over his shoulder, and stood face to face with the… ‘unknown’ guitarist, who tried to smile back at him.A.J MORALES
Will Neilson. The next challenger to this?MAN
(under his breath)
He finally lifted his face up so it was clear as daylight, and of course it was Will Neilson. Who else would do a poor job at trying to hide his identity? Neilson shook his head around to warm up, and then took a glance at the title belt laying on the shoulder of A.J Morales.WILL NEILSON
And I thought it would work… it’s a pleasure actually meeting face to face with you A.J.A.J MORALES
I’d say the same towards you, however it’s clear to me why you are here.
Morales looks over at his shining title, patting it as Will lifts his eyebrows down and looks back towards A.J, the smile gone from his face.WILL NEILSON
You should’ve stopped yourself from posting that tweet, it’s been a pain trying to track you and finally we’ve been lead to this point.A.J MORALES
It was going to happen sooner or later wasn’t it? You think you can live up to the hype?WILL NEILSON
Stop with the questions Morales, look back at that title belt on your shoulders and recognise what each match you have with it represents, the hardcore spirit. Any time, any place, we’ve even got a crowd as well.A.J MORALES
I can see that.
Morales took the time to look around, examining the many people walking in and out of the airport. The referee still stood against the wall manages to spot the staredown between the two competitors, walking over to the two as no fists have been thrown yet.A.J MORALES
There’s your giveaway.WILL NEILSON
Yeah, lucky for you the ref over here didn’t bother to stay out of sight. Otherwise…
Neilson looked towards the guitar he leaned against the wall just a minute ago.WILL NEILSON
I would have smashed you over the head with this.A.J MORALES
What’s stopping you from doing it now?
Morales smiled, trying to push the challenger’s buttons as Neilson flicked his hair out of his face and got closer to A.J, thinking his next words carefully.WILL NEILSON
Just then at the perfect time, camera crews along with the all too familiar faces of Chris Novak and Joe Delonge run through the automatic doors with microphones, forcing both Neilson and Morales both to turn towards them.CHRIS NOVAK
Aaaaaaaaand… there we go! Hello everybody! I’m Chris Novak, he’s Joe Delonge and once again we are LIVE for a XWA Hardcore Championship defence!JOE DELONGE
The challenger, Will Neilson! The champion, A.J Morales! I’ve been looking forward for another title defence from Morales for a while now, and we’ve got it in the form of some new blood to XWA in Will Neilson!CHRIS NOVAK
We’re here at Miami International Airport after our trusty official over here gave us the call, whew!JOE DELONGE
The rules have always been the same, and today they have extended over to this very busy airport, it’s like a wrestling crowd… but most people don’t know what’s going on!CHRIS NOVAK
Let’s just hope these two don’t get too- OH!
Will takes advantage of Morales being distracted and leans his head back to deliver a stiff headbutt to the reigning champion! The force of Will crashing his cranium into A.J’s forces Morales to drop his belt to the floor and stumble back onto one knee, holding his head and looking up at Neilson who simply smirks down.CHRIS NOVAK
Jeez! That was one hell of a headbutt from the challenger here! Giving it all early on here to the four time XWA Hardcore Champion as A.J looks completely taken back by the move.JOE DELONGE
I see people already looking over at this, oh boy… I have a feeling these two are going to use this environment to its full potential.CHRIS NOVAK
That’s what people like Morales are all about! He’s willing to use anything and everything to make sure that he still remains champion, but that headbutt from Will might just slow him down.
Whilst some people stop and stare, others who are in a rush walk past the match taking place. Will looks down at the still kneeling A.J and reaches for his guitar to gain an advantage over Morales, however the defending champion jumps up to his feet and drives Will into the wall, the back of Neilson clashing against the wall he was previously leaning on, his hand unable to grab the acoustic guitar.CHRIS NOVAK
This is what I’m talking about! Morales pushing Will Neilson straight into the wall!
A.J leans back up and begins to punch away at the face of Will, forcing the challenger to hold his arms up in order to defend himself. Morales takes a step back and lunges forward with his right leg, delivering a hard Superkick straight to the face of Will! Neilson is unable to get any protection up, head bouncing off the wall as he falls to a seated position.JOE DELONGE
Ouch! That’s gotta hurt in the morning!
Neilson is going to be taking the full force of that Superkick with no arms up to protect him, he appears stunned already!
Morales has Neilson down here, but instead of going for the cover he reaches over towards the guitar that Neilson had been playing previously, Will seemingly out of it as Morales raises the acoustic guitar above his head and eyes up the challenger.JOE DELONGE
That’s a man’s guitar! You can’t hit a man with his own guitar!CHRIS NOVAK
No rules Joe! A.J can do whatever he wants in this Hardcore Championship match!
A.J swings the guitar down looking to smash it over Will’s head… but at the last moment, Neilson sees his own musical instrument heading straight for his face, letting out a yell and rolling to the side and seeing his guitar smash to pieces on the wall!WILL NEILSON
My GUITAR!JOE DELONGE
His GUITAR!CHRIS NOVAK
The instrument has seemed to play its final tune here, it’s unsalvageable!
A.J is left with the handle of the acoustic guitar in his hand, looking over at the pieces on the floor and letting out a deep sigh. His title still remains close to him on the floor, and he hesitates for a second by dropping the handle… allowing Will to literally jump against the wall, bouncing off of it and kicking A.J across the side of the face! CHRIS NOVAK
Anything can happen! That looked straight out of a video game as Will bounces off the wall to kick Morales where it hurts and with the headbutt inflicted earlier on, Morales’ face doesn’t look to be holding up too well!JOE DELONGE
The things a man will do for his guitar… truly incredible!CHRIS NOVAK
I… I’ll give it to you, that was pretty incredible.
A.J leans his arms forward and falls down in an instant from the high kick, Will falling into a quick cover on the champion.REFEREE
Morales kicks out! Will then leans down to pick A.J up by his hair as he proceeds to bring him over towards the main section of the airport, the camera crew and commentary team following them closely behind. Security now starting to get involved as they rush towards the scene, but are stopped by people who begin to move in and watch the scene with enjoyment, as they're too busy with the crowd to break up the 'fight' going on between to them, two unknown men.CHRIS NOVAK
Morales with the kick out after that wall kick.JOE DELONGE
This place is packed! I can barely make it through!
Through the crowd, Will continues to tussle with A.J as ‘The Revolution’ continues to try and fight back with elbows to the gut, somehow still functioning after two hard shots to the face as he manages to free himself from Will’s grasp. Neilson sees the increasing crowd who are coming through the terminal, and nods, getting an idea in his head as he runs from Morales and disappears into the crowd of people who have no idea what’s going on, security still apprehending people back at the original scene of the fight.CHRIS NOVAK
Hey! Where’d Neilson go?JOE DELONGE
That’s what we’re all wondering! It’s like he’s just vanished, and now A.J looks like just a regular bystander in this increasing crowd, why are none of these people interested?
Morales sees Will’s disappearance as an opportunity to unzip his jacket, and throw it to the side leaving him in a black sleeveless shirt, the XWA logo in the top corner of the shirt.A.J MORALES
Literally anywhere but here… where are you Neilson?
A.J pushes through people, saying ‘sorry’ as he shuffles through the crowd looking for his target, finally reaching the terminal where there isn’t that many people gathered by it. He stands out clearly now, as he scratches his head and looks to his left towards an escalator which looks fairly empty with not that many people going up and down.JOE DELONGE
Where in the… wait… look up there! Above the terminal!
Sitting above a small platform above the terminal is the challenger himself, as Morales looks around to see the commentary team looking upwards but he’s too late as Will has already leaped and flattens Morales with a huge crossbody! People walking by and seeing a man in a sleeveless shirt being taken out by a now shirtless man seems to have made them alerted, most of them picking up their pace and heading off in different directions, others not seeming to care.CHRIS NOVAK
He’s flew straight from that high platform! Morales is being really tested here in this Hardcore Championship match!
Neilson gets up off of him, standing up in just his jeans and trainers, the jacket and whatever was underneath gone completely as he stands in this very public place with his abs and tattoos exposed to the people!JOE DELONGE
A.J is still down, but I don’t see Will going for a cover here!
Bending down and hauling Morales up to his feet again, Will is taken by surprise as A.J delivers a hard uppercut which makes him stumble towards the right, an even greater path leading to what seems to be multiple elevators! A.J keeps up with the uppercuts, finishing off with a high Roundhouse Kick to the side of the head! The ‘Great British Meme’ stumbles but doesn’t fall, as Morales takes a chance and flips up over Will where he’s caught in a Powerbomb position… however he flips over and drives Will into the floor of the airport with a devastating Sunset Flip Powerbomb!CHRIS NOVAK
Straight on the floor! That’s gotta sting there for Will as I feel Morales is starting to turn up the heat in this match!
Morales yells out after connecting with the move, looking down at an extremely dazed Will Neilson who falls down on the floor as A.J leaps into a cover, the referee not far behind as he begins to count.REFEREE
Neilson is the one to kickout now as A.J runs his hands through his hair, but doesn’t give up with taking it to Will as he waits for him to rise to a seated position before delivering a sudden dropkick straight to the jaw that keeps him down! The impact of the Sunset Flip Powerbomb has seemed to attract the attention of quite a few people now, a circle seeming to form around the two fighting it out for the Hardcore Championship, Chris Novak at the center of it all whilst Joe Delonge struggles to find his place within the circle as people who come in are taken away by security, thinning the crowd slightly as the fight still continues in the center, everyone oblivious to security trying to step in.CHRIS NOVAK
This is what HARDCORE is all about! It’s like a fight club here at the airport my god!JOE DELONGE
I’m struggling to even see what’s going on here… let me in!CHRIS NOVAK
As you just saw, Morales with a perfectly executed dropkick that’s knocked Will back down to the ground!JOE DELONGE
Come on now! I’m as important as him over there!
As Delonge struggles to get in the circle to see the action, Morales has Will back on his feet and delivers a spinning sole kick to the midsection of Neilson, following it up with a boot to the chin that makes Will stumble to the edge of the circle, using the surrounding travellers who clearly aren’t in any rush whatsoever to heave himself back up to his feet. He lets out a deep breath, before A.J walks back over to him and turns him around grabbing him from behind… going for a German Suplex which Will counters before A.J can lift him with two elbows to the skull. The crowd is a mixture of chat, cheers and boos as the crowd honestly have little to no clue what is going on, but seem to be excited by the fighting that’s going on, the small circle expanding slightly as others walk past in confusement and even disgust.CHRIS NOVAK
Neilson avoids a German Suplex attempt there, Morales is dazed…JOE DELONGE
I’m in! I’m in the circle!
Will delivers a large right hand to the jaw of Morales which rocks him, sending the champion back a few steps before he hastily runs back at Neilson, being stopped as Will suddenly shoots his left arm up in the air.WILL NEILSON
Morales stands there for a second and hesitates, as it gives Will the opening he needs.WILL NEILSON
An almighty jab connects as Will Neilson propels his right arm forward straight into the right cheek of A.J who falls backwards onto the floor and Will stands up holding his head, trying to regain his composure.CHRIS NOVAK
I thought that headbutt was a strong strike, but good lord that jab! Does Neilson even have a background in boxing at all?JOE DELONGE
I don’t have anything to say Chris! All I know is that jab looked like it hurt quite bad for the champ!
Will seems to get a bit too carried away with himself as he marches around the circle looking down at the fallen A.J Morales who seems to be crawling back to his feet. Neilson gestures to the small circle, but it doesn’t last for long as A.J leaps up to his feet and drives his knee into the back of Will’s head so he goes right through the edge of the circle! CHRIS NOVAK
Bicycle Knee!JOE DELONGE
Are we moving out of this circle now? Took them long enough!
The crowd seem to observe from a distance as Morales picks up Neilson and eyes up the elevator, Novak and Delonge along with the camera crew following closely behind as A.J throws Neilson into the door of the closed elevator as he bounces off the metal straight back into Morales’ grasp!JOE DELONGE
Straight against the door! That didn’t look good as both of these guys seem intent on destroying each other’s faces!
A.J doesn’t stop here and smashes Will’s face into the elevator door once again! He continues and eventually Will’s nose seems more than ‘okay’, blood starting to pour out of the nostrils and when the door finally opens, this is what triggers Will to grab The Monterrocker and deliver an unorthodox hip toss into the elevator! Morales lands back first onto the steel floor of the elevator shaft with Will quickly following him in, the camera crew, referee and two commentators slowly entering behind as the room they stand in is quite cramped. Two men in black shirts with ear pieces begin to run towards the elevator, but they're stopped as the door closes.CHRIS NOVAK
It’s… it’s a bit tight in here… would you agree Joe?JOE DELONGE
Yep… but wherever the action goes the best commentators are soon to follow.WILL NEILSON
I’ll free us up some space, don’t worry lads.
Neilson then forcefully kicks Morales straight in the gut and squashes him up against the far back of the elevator, keeping his body held in position with his foot. A.J yells out in pain as Neilson kicks him once again and delivers a double foot stomp to the back of Morales!WILL NEILSON
We can still get pins in here right?
The referee nods at him as Neilson goes down into… a very weird cover, but somehow A.J grabs the head of Will and delivers a couple of punches which knock him down to the floor, Morales able to twist Will’s body around into an equally weird small package!REFEREE
Will barely kicks out and when he lifts his face up, it goes smack bang into the door and it doesn’t serve well for his face.WILL NEILSON
Get me a tissue, jesus christ!A.J MORALES
Oh come on! This is for the HARDCORE championship!WILL NEILSON
No you idiot! I need to sneeze! I don’t want to spread any germs now do I?
Will holds his nose as he then begins to sneeze into his hand, looking down at his… pretty disgusting hand filled with something that probably shouldn’t be described, but there’s blood in there for sure.CHRIS NOVAK
… well then.JOE DELONGE
... yep.WILL NEILSON
Shit… oh god.
The elevator comes to a stop as Will looks to punch A.J, and then hesitates because of hand, beginning to raise his leg up for a high kick but Morales grabs the leg of Will and spins him around out of the elevator for a Dragon Screw! Neilson falls out of the elevator clutching his leg with his free hand, before quickly darting into his pocket to pull out a tissue. The entire crew steps out of the elevator as Morales stands over Neilson.WILL NEILSON
Let me wipe my hand!
The Great British Meme proceeds to wipe his hand and looks around for a nearby bin, opening it up and throwing the dirty tissue in, but Morales is tired of waiting and kisses the Green Lantern emblem on the glove he is wearing, leaping up at Will for the Liberator!CHRIS NOVAK
A.J looking to finish the job here and retain his championship!
Will dodges out of the way sending Morales’ fist flying into nothing, as he truly takes advantage over the anything goes rule, hauling the steel bin up high with impressive strength, throwing it straight at Morales where it bounces off of him and rolls on the floor with a thud!JOE DELONGE
Will just a threw a trash can at A.J Morales! And look at A.J he appears completely out of it!CHRIS NOVAK
That’s some very creative offence if I say so myself!
Neilson stumbles back slightly as he sees Morales groan from being struck in the chest with a large object like the bin and picks A.J back up, putting him in a Wristlock position before spinning him around with a confident grin on his face…CHRIS NOVAK
He’s going to hit it! The Diabolical Bullet… no!
Morales counters with a huge Enziguri! As the noise echoes around the second floor of the airport, Will stumbles backwards and doesn’t fall allowing A.J to run forward and connect with a Slingblade!JOE DELONGE
Beautiful Slingblade from Morales!
A.J gets fired up and grabs the head of Will, lifting him and delivering punch after punch, driving Neilson further and further along to what appears to be an escalator in the distance! Many people begin to struggle and climb up the escalator to get another view of the action that is taking place, still people that don’t care about the fight and walk past it, rather wanting to catch their flight.CHRIS NOVAK
The current Hardcore Champion is throwing punches at the increasingly bloody face of Will Neilson, driving him across the second floor here!JOE DELONGE
Neilson’s still fighting though, he’s got spirit!
Will tries to punch back into the gut of Morales, as A.J delivers another huge right hand before throwing Will into a nearby pole as he bounces off onto the floor! Neilson grits his teeth and closes his eyes, trying to get back up to his feet whilst Morales doesn’t appear done with him yet. Dragging the fallen body of Neilson over to a desk in which two clerks sit behind, as they appear to slowly move away and let Morales do what he needs to do.A.J MORALES
Damn… it ain’t a Hardcore title match without some flips.
With sweat dripping off of his forehead and the blood from Will’s nose on his hands, A.J climbs onto the elevated desk and looks down at Neilson’s body below. Morales raises his arms up before twisting his body forward twice, crashing into Will Neilson’s chest with an amazing 450 Splash!CHRIS NOVAK
Amazing! 450 Splash from on top of the clerk desk!JOE DELONGE
That’s gotta be it! Morales is going to retain!
A.J stays on Neilson’s chest and hooks both legs, nodding his head along with the referee’s counts.REFEREE
Will kicks out! The 450 Splash not putting him away as Morales rolls off of Will and gets back up to his feet, leaning against the desk in which he just jumped off of and breathing heavily again holding his stomach.A.J MORALES
Morales lets out one final deep breath before picking up Will and going for another punch that stuns him long enough to haul Neilson up on his shoulders, carrying him across the second floor as the referee and camera crew follow.CHRIS NOVAK
Will Neilson with the resilience yet again here in Miami! What’s it going to take to put this hungry challenger away.JOE DELONGE
I don’t know Chris, but I do know where A.J is taking the challenger right now, and it’s to that escalator! CHRIS NOVAK
He ain’t giving in yet! Look at Will here!
Neilson tries to wriggle out of A.J’s grasp, and Morales looks to solve this by leaning over to the left and then looking to drive Will down to the right with a Death Valley Driver… however Neilson lands on his feet from Morales’ shoulders! Now it’s Neilson who has the advantage as he surprises A.J Morales by taking him from behind and dropping him with a sudden Back Suplex!JOE DELONGE
Back Suplex! Neilson is back in charge!
Will lets out an equal heavy breath similar to what Morales did after giving Neilson the 450 Splash earlier, Neilson now hauling Morales up on his shoulders and carrying him closer to the escalator, taking the opportunity to wave at some of the concerned and confused people that walk past. The circle from before begins to form again as the crowd from earlier has returned, Neilson then gets closer to the two seperate escalators and bursts through the circle rolling through on the floor to drive A.J’s back down! Neilson leaps up with a yell and is now at the top of the escalator going in the downward direction…CHRIS NOVAK
That man definitely has some devilish intentions with the amount of height here from the first floor…JOE DELONGE
Morales is in big trouble if he doesn’t recover in time!
Will smirks and grabs A.J by his shirt collar, looking to literally throw him down to the first floor where the fight first began but Morales won’t go easily! A.J delivers an elbow to the gut which forces Will to let go, the crowd now blocking them from leaving the escalator area as Morales delivers a kick to the ear of Will! JOE DELONGE
He’s stumbling!CHRIS NOVAK
Morales eyes him up…
Neilson now finds himself in the same position as A.J before, turning around to see the steps shuffling down and before he can react further…MORALES LEAPS FORWARD! 94 BLITZ!CHRIS NOVAK
OH MY GOD! SPEAR! SPEAR!
A.J uses the force of the Spear to send both him and Will crashing down the downward escalator! Morales’ fall is bad and he manages to land in the middle platform connecting the two separate escalators, where he lays clutching his head after colliding with one of the steps shuffling down to the bottom! Neilson on the other hand is completely out of it, the escalator taking his limp body down as he lands on the bottom not moving at all. Will doesn’t even manage to roll over, his back bruised all over and bloody, his face even worse off as this brawl has reached its peak here.JOE DELONGE
Is he okay down there?! My god!CHRIS NOVAK
A.J Morales is truly living up to his reputation as a four time Hardcore Champion! These two are insane, and look at this crowd we have here!
Morales lays on the middle platform for a few seconds before slowly lifting his head up and looking down at the unmoving Neilson, A.J begins to crawl slowly, eventually finding his footing as he gets nearer and nearer to the bottom, but ends up staggering and going down on one knee holding his back.JOE DELONGE
Come on Chris! Down we go!CHRIS NOVAK
We’ll have a whole host of people following us down here, but let’s go!
Every person watching the match including the commentators, camera crew and referee shuffle slowly down the downward escalator in an orderly fashion, the impatient people going down the upwards escalator to reach the bottom to where Will is beginning to stir and stumble up to his feet. Neilson is on his knees as he looks up at A.J who has reached his feet again and is looking down, breathing heavily as he gets distracted by the amount of people running past.CHRIS NOVAK
You’re pushing me Joe!JOE DELONGE
I need to get to the bottom Chris, these two are fighting to the death! Literally!
With Morales still gathering his surroundings and wiping sweat from his forehead, Will looks over to his right to see… the XWA Hardcore Championship! This place isn’t too far from where the fight first started, and it appears that the title has landed by where Neilson is from the entrance way where it was last seen. Will picks up the title and clutches it behind him, Morales unable to see it as he looks up at Will slowly and can’t help but smile.CHRIS NOVAK
We’re here!JOE DELONGE
Wait… what’s Will holding?
Will is now on one knee as Morales looks down and proceeds to kiss the symbol on his glove once again, this time much longer as he prepares to deliver the Liberator from his elevated position!CHRIS NOVAK
He’s preparing the Liberator! Is he going to connect it this time?JOE DELONGE
Isn’t that the…
Morales runs forward with a battle cry and leaps off the elevated platform, extending his fist out for the Liberator Superman Punch!
…TITLE SHOT TO THE FACE!JOE DELONGE
XWA HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP!CHRIS NOVAK
To the face!
Morales’ rush of adrenaline is halted as he collapses midair and his body crashes onto the floor, Neilson sitting down clutching the title he just smashed into the face of A.J Morales! Will breathes heavily and his eyes widen, he quickly scurries over to the fallen and limp body of Morales, folding him up and hooking both legs! The referee has reached the bottom through the sea of humanity, and goes down to count with the crowd now fully into it, chanting along with the count!REFEREE
He did it! He actually did it! We have a new Hardcore Champion!CHRIS NOVAK
Will Neilson has arrived here in XWA, and in his debut appearance, he’s only gone and upset A.J Morales to win the XWA Hardcore Championship! Congratulations are out for the ‘Great British Meme’!
Will is barely able to stand after the pinfall, grabbing the championship he could now call his and having his arm raised by the referee, eyes still widened after the victory. He stumbles over towards the camera bloody face and all, wiping his free hand over his face and through his hair, throwing the title up over his shoulder whilst smiling at the camera.WILL NEILSON
I did it… I fucking did it.
Neilson manages to distance himself away from the crowd as he heads towards the entrance way, back to where it all started, his broken guitar laying in pieces on the floor. The camera follows him as he looks over at his title, at the pieces, and then over at the still unmoving body of the former champion A.J Morales. Neilson takes one last look at the camera, raising a fist up high as the airport itself has seemed to come to a standstill, security finally seeming to have taken care of almost everyone, taking away A.J Morales who has barely moved since getting a taste of the title he once held.WILL NEILSON
That… that… that is what you call the start of a TRUE revolution!
Shaking off the camera and rest of the crew, Will doesn’t even bother to go get his jacket that he tore off earlier, marching outside and raising his title up high to the very confused and very concerning public.
All they saw was a topless, tattooed and bloody man raising a belt above his head.
