LIVE! From the Xtreme Cruiselines (1,500 Capacity) Broadcast exclusively on The Xperience!
The Main Event: Television Title Rematch
The Lynx vs. Adam Fenric
Last Massacre was a good for one Richard J Maxwell. The team of thorns in his side still remains together, he managed to get some semblance of “justice” in the form of The Lynx brutalizing Fenric for his Television Title. To add insult to injury, Maxwell is forcing Fenric to invoke his rematch clause this week or lose it. Will Fenric be at 100%? Will that even matter? Or will the new Television Champion, the Underworld's Greatest Gift put the doctor down for the count again?
WORD COUNT: 5000
-------- Deadline for matches is 17th May 2017 at 11:59 Eastern Standard Time. Voting will start at this time and conclude on 21th May 2017 at 11:59 Eastern Standard Time. [CST is one hour earlier. GMT is five hours later.]
As Massacre reaches it's final match, the fans on the Xtreme Cruiselines are ecstatic. They've seen Smith Jones, AJ Morales, OOKAMI No Chi...it's been an epic show, and our main event is going to end it with a bang. Or, well...a violin.
Shrieking strings fill the air, as Camile Saint-Saëns "Danse Macabre" echoes through the arena. As it begins to pick up and come to life, the lights blink in perfect timing with the percussion. As those violins play away Adam Fenric steps through the curtain with his hands behind his back and a stern glare, as he takes a look at the audience he has for the evening. He is, tonight, joined by Emery Layton (still in Pirate gear) and manager Amy Taylor. The music carries on as the Plague Doctor begins to walk down the ramp.
MARK SANCTION: He's a man looking for retribution. Adam Fenric lost the TV title in his first defense against the champion, but tonight he has promised he is going to 'procure' the title once again and 'stop the monster'.
TEMPEST: But can he do it? The Lynx savagely and decisively defeated Adam last week to capture the title. Will this be a repeat?
As Fenric reaches the end of the ramp, he turns on his heel and strides up the steps, holding the bottom of his Victorian-era cloak up so that he does not tread in it. Calmly, he wipes his feet on the apron, taking a few seconds to process the moment before he steps into the ring. Finally, unhooking his cloak and folding it neatly, he hands it to Amy who stands on the apron and steps back down, pacing back and forth in his corner. He's here, he's ready and his plan is about to unfold.
The lights go out completely and the opening organs of "Prancing Dad" by Prince of Darkness sound throughout Xtreme Cruiselines. Four separate 'priests' come out with three foot sticks having a jack o'lantern hanging on the top, all four lit with candles. Fog permeates the area and enshrouds the area. Out comes the new and improved dominate force, and the XWA Television Champion himself "The Lynx". He flips the orange and black cloak back and raises his title up in the air. He stomps his way down the ramp with the crowd hissing at him. He confronts one person, stares down into his soul, forcing him to sit down out of the pure terror.
MARK SANCTION: And here comes the Television Champion, ladies and gentlemen. My God, he looks somehow more menacing with that title in his posession.
TEMPEST: Adam Fenric wants to be the man who fights monsters? He's got a heck of a monster to contend with here if he wants his championship back.
The Lynx walks up the steel steps and steps over the ropes. He drops down to his knees in the middle of the ring, displaying the XWA Television Championship in front of him with his arms outstretched. He looks downward like he's peering down into the abyss. He drives both fists into the mat and fire shoots out of the ring posts. He then stands up, grabbing his title and draping it over his shoulder, ready to waste away any opponent coming down that should get in his way...specifically Adam Fenric. On the outside, Emery and Amy look on, somewhat uncomfortably. The bell rings to signal our attention as Dad stops prancing and Hana Ramierez stands in the middle of the ring, mic'd up with referee Wayne Johnston to her side.
HANA RAMIEREZ: The following contest is set for one fall, it is the main event of the evening and it is for the XWA TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP!
Cheers! Hooray- titles!
HANA RAMIEREZ: Introducing first- the challenger. Being accompanied by Amy Taylor and Emery Layton...from Vienna, Austria, weighing 218Ibs- he is the "Plague Doctor"... ADAM...FEEEEENNNRRIICCCC!
Adam is unmoving as the fans cheer for the former champion. He is focused. He has his plan and he is going over it in his head over and over again, as he stares into the space where Lynx's eyes are presumably placed behind that faceless, terrifying mask.
HANA RAMIEREZ: And his opponent- from the Trenches of the Abyss, weighing 350 Ibs...he is the reigning and DEFENDING XWA Television Champion...THE LLYYYYYNXXXX!
Thunderous boos as the Lynx raises his title in the air. A thousand voices screaming for his loss. But they're not the voices he needs to listen to right now. They're not the voices that will guide him where he needs to go. What he does hear back in reality, though, is the voice of Wayne, who asks him for his title. The Lynx obliges, as Adam Fenric shakes his arms and legs out in his corner. Our referee raises the title in the air for all of us to see.
MARK SANCTION: That's what it's all about right there, the chance to hold the top prize on XWA Massacre. Both these men have tasted that first victory once before. I'll be damned if they don't want it again.
As Wayne hands the belt off, it's clear that now there is no more cause for delay. There is nothing left to wait for. The moment has come.
As the bell rings, the Television Champion immediately charges at Adam, who rolls out of the way, his shoulder to the mat as he pops back up. Lynx immediately turns around as Adam avoids him like, well, a plague. He's got his guard up, but both men are stalking one another. Adam goes to reach for Lynx's leg but the monstrous man towers above him. Lynx once again reaches out for Adam but the Plague Doctor ducks under again, now striking him with some hard forearms to the back of his neck. It takes only two of them for Lynx to get seriously annoyed with him and turn around, using his raw power to grab Fenric by the face with only one hand and push him backwards. Adam rolls through, pulling himself back up to his feet and running back in with a fury, but the Underworld's Greatest Gift is completely ready for the much smaller opponent, as Fenric runs face-first into a massive bicycle kick taking him down within seconds.
MARK SANCTION: Good lord, a hell of a bicycle kick there to stop Adam in his tracks, in the early going here.
TEMPEST: Well Adam's usual technical, catch-based style is not going to work against such a large monster like the Lynx here. Not immediately, anyway. Not without work.
MARK SANCTION: But don't count Lynx out on that either. Technical wrestling is not a completely alien concept to him- once someone of his size and strength can get you in something like the Lynx-Lock, you're in trouble. I think Adam knows that.
TEMPEST: Not doing him any favors right now, though.
Lynx grabs the back of Adam's head with one hand and his chin with the other, pulling him up forcefully to his feet. He hooks Adam's midsection, shoving the back of his head against under his legs and cutting across his throat with his finger.
MARK SANCTION: No, he can't be going for this so early!
TEMPEST: This was the move that put Adam Fenric away last time and lost him his title, and he's going for it again right here!
Adam is too fresh, too aware, too ready. He knows what stopped him last time- he was there. Dropping to the ground like he's about to perform a drill and crawl forward. Lynx tries to grab the back of Adam's head, but the sneaky tricksterish ways of Adam Fenric anticipates this expertly. As he feels Lynx's hand reach under his legs and grab at Adam's head, he reaches back and grabs his wrist, holding it as he squats to his feet and turns around.
TEMPEST: Oh look at this!
MARK SANCTION: That was excellent! If Adam Fenric has done nothing else in ring this year, he is earning himself the reputation of the man who can reverse almost anything.
He's got Lynx trapped, as he rains down on the back of Lynx's neck with elbow strike after elbow strike. He hits at least six of them in a row before he moves back behind Lynx, pulling Lynx's arm across to trip the Television Champion backwards onto the mat. When Lynx is down, Adam releases his forearm as he dives forward, Lynx's legs now being pushed down by Adam's shoulders as the Nightmare Incarnate's back is pressed against the mat! Referee Wayne Johnston goes for the count!
And it's not enough as Lynx kicks out quickly, rolling away. He pulls himself up to his feet, but Adam Fenric has already made a move and is running towards the ropes. Lynx, somewhat slower than Fenric, turns around he's already stepped into the spinning leg of the Plague Doctor, who takes him down as his thigh connects with Lynx's jaw. Once dropping him to the mat. Adam pushes himself back up to his feet as Emery, still at ringside with Amy, taps the mat, satisfied, as the fans witnessing this on Xtreme Cruiselines cheer loudly.
MARK SANCTION: Adam Fenric in the drivers' seat.
TEMPEST: Well it's different. He knows how the Lynx works now having faced him before. Very much like Austin Carter learned at Legends, Fenric is dangerous the first time you meet him but dear lord pray you never get in there with him a second time- he will have you all figured out.
What stops the cheering right dead in it's tracks is when the Lynx sits up. RIGHT up. Like a dead body rising again on a slab, the Lynx focuses his gaze on Fenric, who has moved off to the corner. If we could see his eyes behind that mask, they'd be melting Adam's face like he's staring into the Ark of the Covenant. Those demons are screaming, and they're angry.
TEMPEST: Okay, so about what I just said...
MARK SANCTION: The Lynx not taking any crap. He won the Television title from Adam so decisively on the last episode and fought to get the title- imagine how hard he's gonna fight to keep it.
Adam realises he has to take a different strategy. As Lynx reaches his feet again, coming for him, the Plague Doctor circles the ring. There's no use going in for the tie-up, because the Lynx has the power advantage and he's over seven foot. That would be an absolute disaster. But what he doesn't have, as established in this match and the previous match, is he doesn't have the speed that Adam has. So Adam begins to circle that ring to get behind the Lynx, but the big man is certainly not about to let that happen. He knows what's going on. All of them in his head know what's going on. They're shouting, screaming, telling the vessel occupied by the mad titan that is the Lynx that he must not turn. He must not expose the back. It's not until Adam tries to make a sudden sideways roll that Lynx sees his opportunity. "Do it", they tell him. As Adam reaches his feet, he once again feels the boot of the Lynx as he takes him down with a huge Yakuza Kick, stopping him right in his tracks. Lynx isn't done there though.
Not deterred by the winces, groans and boos of the fans, Lynx picks Adam up and drags him into the corner. Em, Amy and all of us watch on as Adam is Irish whipped into the opposite corner very quickly and with such force. His chest collides with that top turnbuckle and immediately Adam Fenric feels like his entire chest has just stopped completely stopped working for two seconds, followed by an intense dropping feeling. Adam holds back any indication that he is hurting or feeling anything, as he is want to do, but it only lasts so long. Like a ragdoll, he finds himself dropping onto his back very hard, the Lynx putting his foot behind his ankle and throwing both of them down to the mat.
MARK SANCTION: Running STO from the Lynx, and now the Nightmare Incarnate has Adam Fenric.
TEMPEST: So with all of the weird shaman stuff and Adam's creepy doctor things, is this match essentially the weirdest version of the science vs magic debate?
MARK SANCTION: If it is, magic is definitely winning the argument right now. Look at the power of the Lynx, and here he goes with a cover attempt.
Hooking the leg of Adam Fenric, Lynx lies in wait...
THR-- Adam gets his shoulder up quickly as he rolls onto his side.
He shakes the cobwebs so to speak, but he doesn't find the time to do it for long as Lynx kicks him onto his front. As Adam slowly begins to lift himself up, he once again is not afforded the opportunity. Two giant, tree-trunk-like arms wrap themselves around his midsection, tight and unmoving. He looks to either side of him and there to his left and right. He's being lifted very slowly up into the air.
MARK SANCTION: Jesus, look at the strength of the Lynx here!
Lynx does not delay as he falls backwards, releasing his grip on the Plague Doctor, throwing him half-way across the ring.
TEMPEST: Maaan, I felt that.
MARK SANCTION: The Lynx with a huge release German suplex, and the power of the Underworld's Greatest Gift being displayed here expertly.
Emery begins to rhythmically drum on the apron, and the fans respond by clapping along with this. Right now it is not serving any use, though. Lynx pulls Adam back up to his feet one more time, only this time he throws him into the ropes. Adam comes storming back, right into the Lynx, who lifts him by his leg, spinning him in the air and dropping him back-first onto the ground.
MARK SANCTION: Eternal Rest from The Lynx, and it looks like he's gonna try ending this soon.
TEMPEST: Well look how quickly he got rid of Adam last week. The Lynx is a monstrosity of the ring who doesn't fool around. He's an absolute powerhouse.
MARK SANCTION: And here he goes again, but look!
Lynx drags Adam's body up to his feet and pulls Adam's head under his arm, facing upwards, wrapping his arm under Adam's left arm with one arm and then hooking under his right arm, meeting behind his back. He's got him locked, trapped, absolutely unable to go anywhere.
MARK SANCTION: The Lynx-Lock is locked in!
TEMPEST: Adam has absolutely nowhere to go now, and that a huge, huge problem. But having said that, imagine what it'd be like if not only did Adam Fenric lose two times in a row to the Lynx but he also lost via a submission, given his background and style?
MARK SANCTION: Lets hope he doesn't. Fenric is not the easiest man to like but goddammit he is not a vile animal like the Lynx is. Not anymore anyway.
Adam is stuck. He's not going to merely be able to fight his way out of it. He'll have to be crafty. Though Emery continues to rouse some support from the fans, it's not going to simply stop the Lynx. No one has ever heard a chant for an opponent and said 'oh, you like him? I'm sorry. I'll just release the hold' and the Lynx is certainly not going to be the first. He keeps that thing on, but Adam notices he has an advantage here. Rather than usually when a dragon sleeper is applied, he would be knelt down or on the floor in some way. Here he is not. He is stood. He can feel himself fading, but he's got to fight past that. Fight through it. Noting the position of his arms and legs, he sees an opening here. He can just about look to his side and see exactly whereabouts he is in the ring. While Lynx keeps his grip on Adam, the Plague Doctor uses his arms- currently flailing beind Lynx, to grab onto Lynx in a similar way to how Lynx is hooking him. He's got him in his grip as well now. Standing straight, he pivots himself around ninety degrees. Looking upside down, he can see the turnbuckle staring directly back at him. It'd be smiling back at him if it could. That's it. That means he's near.
MARK SANCTION: What on earth is Adam Fenric doing here?
TEMPEST: I've absolutely no idea, but he's stuck in that Lynx Lock and I don't think he's going to get out quite that easily. Whatever he's planning better be good.
And thats when Adam, keeping his grip on the Lynx, simultaneously begins to pull as he runs forward, pulling Lynx with him as he has the hold on. It takes about four or five steps before Adam gets where he needs to go. Lynx does not let go of the hold as Adam reaches his leg out, where he feels the ropes on his foot. Perfect. He now reaches his other leg out, and essentially begins to climb the turnbuckle while still in the hold!
TEMPEST: Okay. NO idea what this is.
MARK SANCTION: I'm still none the wiser from before.
Once reaching the top turnbuckle, Adam propells himself off, his feet in the air as he falls backwards over Lynx's shoulder. He's still got his grip locked on, but now Lynx's head is under his arm!
TEMPEST: No. Way.
MARK SANCTION: I cannot believe what we are seeing!
After some intense pulling, Adam finally digs his head out from under Lynx's arm and is now facing upwards with Lynx in a dragon sleeper of his own.
TEMPEST: How in the blue hell did he do that?
MARK SANCTION: Adam Fenric with the reversal of the century! Lynx is trapped in his own lock, or at least some variation of dragon sleeper. Don't forget, the Plague Doctor knows his way around those too!
At this point, Adam wraps his legs around Lynx's midsection and allows him to drop to the ground, keeping him locked in as they both fall onto their side. The fans are all calling for it- tap! Give in! Lynx fights with all the power he has to not do that. Luckily it seems time and height are on his side. See, Adam had to get him quite near the rope a minute ago in order to reverse in the way he did. That means he's still near those ropes. All it takes is for Lynx to stretch out his leg and now his foot is indeed on the rope. You can feel the deflation in the room as referee Wayne Johnston urges Adam to break the hold. The countdown begins. Adam releases the hold, much to the booing of the capacity crowd. As he releases the hold, he moves backwards into the corner as Lynx begins to pull himself back up slowly.
MARK SANCTION: I think that reversal caught Lynx completely unawares there. He looks dazed!
TEMPEST: But look here- Adam's move backwards into the corner. I dunno what he's about to do here...
Adam looks to his side. He sees Emery looking back at him and he gets an idea. As Lynx rises, he realises he has his back to him. Adam shoots another look to Em, raising one eyebrow as he taps his knee.
MARK SANCTION: Hang on one minute...
TEMPEST: Well, Emery Layton is indeed out here. She's known to do that running knee attack and it's often done her favors, Adam Fenric could be giving a try here himself!
Lynx begins to turn and Adam goes running. But Lynx is smart. He knows he's coming. He can feel it. As the Television Champion turns around, Adam jumps into the air, his knee extended and his leg out as he falls onto his back. But Lynx does something Adam doesn't plan for and assumes he won't do. Something very simple- he moves back an inch. Just one single inch, enough for Adam to miss and go dropping onto the ground. But as he does, Lynx catches Adam's leg and drapes it over his shoulder, then grabbing the leg with the extended knee and doing the same. From the ground, Lynx lifts Adam up very slowly as the fans on the cruiseline's reactions range from gasps to mouths agape.
MARK SANCTION: Oh my God.
With a fury, uses all of his power to push Adam off his shoulders and onto the mat.
TEMPEST: My GOD!
MARK SANCTION: A massive, massive powerbomb taking Adam Fenric down and that's all she wrote.
Lynx drops to his knees, hooking the leg once again.
THRE-- No! Adam Fenric kicks out.
TEMPEST: It's NOT all she wrote!
MARK SANCTION: Adam Fenric refuses to go down easily in our main event here on Massacre!
Lynx, even though we cannot see his face, is quite visibly angry. He cannot quite believe that Adam kicked out of that. Well he'll show him. Picking him up by his chin, the Nightmare Incarnate transfers his hand to Adam's wrist, pulling with all of his might and Adam goes running across the ring, into that rope. He has to think fast. He thinks he knows what Lynx is going for. Having analysed his moveset so that he can be more prepared this week than he was last week, he knows there are a few things he could have in mind right now. But Adam Fenric has plans of his own. He has to enact them right now, though. No delays, no worrying, he has caution in the palm of his hand and can't throw it anywhere but into the wind. As he reaches the rope, he jumps up. He hears the stops of Lynx behind him as he pounces onto the middle rope, standing on it as he falls backwards, rotating his entire body upside down and taking Lynx down to the mat!
MARK SANCTION: Adam Fenric with a springboard moonsault!
Lynx is on the ground, Adam's on the ground. He could go for the pin but the Plague Doctor knows another way- something no one has ever beaten. Adam flips Lynx over. The beast wants to play a game of 'end it early'? He won last week, this week however, might be a different story. Lynx is on his front as Adam hooks his arms. The Champion tries to fight out, he flails like an angry child and even tenses so that Adam cannot move. That's when the Plague Doctor's dark side comes out, as he knees Lynx in the spine not once, not twice, but three times in order for him to lose tension. His arms have a moment of weakness and that's all Adam needs to tighten his grip. He's got Lynx's arms forced adjacent to one another, all he needs to do is flip over and...
MARK SANCTION: He's got him!
TEMPEST: Goodbye Cruel World is locked in! The move that beat people like Austin Carter and the new Supreme XWA Champion Lx-Tim, and the Lynx is feeling it. But will he tap?
The top of Adam's head is propped up on the mat as he applies the pressure to the Underworld's Greatest Gift. Lynx reaches around with his foot. He cannot feel any sort of leverage. All those demons in his head, all the parasites in the crowd, hundreds of thousands of voices all calling for the Lynx's head, as Adam Fenric applies all the pressure his being can produce to keep the pain alive. Lynx has nowhere to go this time. He mustn't. He must. Its in that moment...he taps!
MARK SANCTION: It's OVER!
TEMPEST: We have a new champion...again!
The bell rings as Adam releases the hold. Danse Macabre fills the airwaves once again, and Adam Fenric rolls away. Emery rolls into the ring and Amy enters shortly after.
HANA RAMIEREZ: Here is your winner, and the NEW XWA Television Champion...ADAM FENRIC!
MARK SANCTION: Adam Fenric has done it- he has overcome The Lynx to regain the XWA Television Championship!
TEMPEST: He wants to be "The Man Who Fights Monsters", well there were times tonight where I thought he wouldn't do it but he managed to pull it off.
Adam Fenric raises the title that has been returned to him way above his head. His tag partner Emery and manager Amy give him a round of applause as he drops to his knees. A look of quiet relief falls across his face, as he looks down at his XWA Television Championship.
MARK SANCTION: Adam Fenric regains the Television title. What an ending to XWA Massacre. I'm Mark Sanction, good night!
And we fade out the show on the image of Adam Fenric, once again, XWA Television Champion.
Need catching up on the current Runaways/Final story arc going into Legends? Look here!
Shrieking strings fill the air, as Camile Saint-Saëns "Danse Macabre" echoes through the arena. As it begins to pick up and come to life, the lights blink in perfect timing with the percussion. As those violins play away Adam Fenric steps through the curtain with his hands behind his back and a stern glare, as he takes a look at the audience he has for the evening. That music carries on as the Plague Doctor begins to walk down the ramp.
Hana: Making his way to the ring- from Vienna, Austria, weighing 218 pounds. He is the "Plague Doctor"... ADAM...FEEEEENNNRRIICCCC!
As Fenric reaches the end of the ramp, he turns on his heel and strides up the steps, holding the bottom of his Victorian-era cloak up so that he does not tread in it. Calmly, he wipes his feet on the apron, taking a few seconds to process the moment before he steps into the ring. Finally, unhooking his cloak and folding it neatly, he hands it to a member of the crew outside, pacing back and forth in his corner. He's here, he's ready and his plan is about to unfold.
The lights go out completely and the opening organs of Prancing Dad by Prince of Darkness sound throughout the Battlezone. Four separate 'priests' come out with three foot sticks having a jack o'lantern hanging on the top, all four lit with candles. Fog permeates the area and enshrouds the Battlezone. Out comes the new and improved dominate force "The Lynx". He flips the new orange and black cloak back and raises an arm up in the air. He stomps his way down the ramp with the crowd hissing at him. He confronts one person, stares down into his soul, forcing him to sit down out of the pure terror. The Lynx walks up the steel steps and steps over the ropes. He drops down to his knees in the middle of the ring, arms outstretched and looks downward like he was peering down into the abyss. He drives both fists into the mat and fire shoots out of the ring posts.
Hana: From the Trenches of the Abyss weighing in at 350 pounds. He is the XWA TV Champ, The Lynx!!!
The Nightmare Incarnate raises his belt and yells out a primal roar. Adam’s face is unfazed and looks like he is more than read to give it another go and take that belt away from the monster that claimed that championship. The referee takes the belt and raises it up and hands it off to the timekeeper. The bell rings to start the match!
Mark: The rematch is has officially begun! The Monster versus The Doctor: This is going to be a great main event!
Tempest: You got that right. Adam is primed to take his belt back, even if it’s against a hulking being like that.
Mark: I think that just makes Fenric all the braver and more admirable. Taking on a monster that beat him and coming back with more fire than before, a trait that champions are made of Tempy.
Fenric is way of The Lynx, who starts the match out in a similar fashion in their last encounter. He stands there stoically, almost as if he is an immovable pillar whose surface can’t be scratched. The Plague Doctor remembers caution needs to be used here. He shoots a low kick into The Underworld’s Greatest Gift’s left calf, but he doesn’t budge an inch. Fenric goes out and does the same for the left calf and connects, but once again The Lynx just looks on, staring down at Adam doing his best to intimidate The Plague Doctor. Fenric is fearless and once again tries to kick the lower right calf, but his face gets sucked into the massive right hand of the TV Champ and The Lynx uses all his force to push Adam back. Fenric falls on his back and tumbles all due to the great strength of the menacing masked man. Adam gets to his knee, looking on with determined eyes and looks unflinching as he looks for a way to expose the imposing monster.
Tempest: Well that started off well.
Mark: Well The Lynx has 132 pounds more over on Adam and that alone is a big gap to hurdle. Not including that this masked monster can be really into inflicting pain when he gets motivated.
Tempest: Fenric better start getting this over quick then if he wants to not just survive, but win his championship belt back.
Fenric throws all caution to the wind and guns it over to The Lynx, legs bursting forward and he Dropkicks all his might into The Nightmare Incarnate’s chest to make his shift backward against the rope. Adam gets up to a rebounding monster who whips up a Big Boot right into the face of Fenric to smash him to bits onto the mat! The Plague Doctor tends to his face and then gets his neck wrapped by the devilish hands of his opponent to get lifted from the mat and high into the air. *HELLZONE GRENADE!* The Two Handed Sit Out Chokeslam coined by The Lynx is used to perfection and is put into a pinning position.
One! . . . . TWO!...not this time!
Mark: The Lynx is already looking to finish this early.
Tempest: Well last time these two fought The Lynx steamrolled his way to the end and was looking to do the same tonight. I don’t think it will be the same story though since Adam is sure to becoming at him with everything he has got sooner than later.
The Lynx rolls back and throws his famous pellet into the ground, enshrouding the entire ring into a white fog. The Plague Doctor has done plenty of footage studying to know where this is going. He guesses a direction and runs forward, thrusting out his knee and hits paydirt as he connects it against the monster’s masked face, which has him buckle down to a knee outside of the ring. The former TV Champ heads out to the current one, coming right behind him and inducing The Lynx into a Sleeper Hold as the fog still coats the area. The referee still can’t see much, which means Adam has more time to stay outside and drag the life force of his opponent so he can slow him down in the long run. The Lynx struggles and tries his best to shake off Fenric, but to no avail. The fog begins to clear up and the crowd begins to cheer, seeing that Adam truly has the upper hand.
Mark: We can see again and Adam has got this in hand!
Tempest: The Lynx tried to do some of that voo doo type of stuff, but The Plague Doctor was just too smart for that trick.
Mark: With Adam knowing what The Lynx is up to, you have to think he might be getting a few steps closer to getting his belt back!
The Lynx shoves this thought back at his face as he reaches his arms back, rises up to his feet to toss Adam over his shoulder and onto his back onto the outside floor! The referee begins to count as The Architect of Destruction plasters his opponent’s face with a Knee Drop square into his nose!
TWO! THREE! FOUR!
The Lynx lifts Adam from the ground and throws him over the ropes to land back into the ring. He rolls into the ring, getting to his feet to pull Adam up be placed in a Front Facelock. He raises the man upward, falling back to slam him down with a great Vertical Suplex. The Lynx surprises a few people as he rolls backward to mount himself atop Fenric, pummeling the opponent’s forehead with a great number of Elbow Thrusts into The Plague Doctor’s forehead. Adam does his best to cover but just can’t seem to block the great strength of attack. Adam begins to fade away from each Thrust and The Lynx uses this time to get up and Leg Drop all his weight across the neck of his opponent. Rising back up, he lifts Adam upside down, jumping while rotation three hundred sixty degrees to Piledrive his opponent into the mat! *DOOMSDAY SCENARIO* The Lynx gets up and places his foot on top of Fenric for the pin.
ONE! TWO!! THREE!!!
The bell rings!
Hana: Here is your winner and STILL XWA TV Champ, THE LYYYYYYYYYNX!
This is all I can do since the deadline just passed not that long ago and I didn't want to post more over the time period.
Adam Fenric: This was a really solid match with a few really cool spots. The dragon sleeper spot was awesome, your description was on point. Everything was just really smooth and enjoyable to read.
The Lynx: I can feel how time was a big issue here, and that is ultimately why this vote is so short. Like, I honestly don't feel anything I could say about this would really help you in the future, because your matches normally don't have the problem of time harming them to this degree.
