Ladies and gentlemen... we are finally here with the Lord of the Ring Finals, live from Madison Square Garden! I am Mark Sanction and I am here joined by my two special guest commentators throughout this wonderful event, firstly... he is known as The Plague Doctor and is a former XWA Tag Team and Television Champion, Adam Fenric!ADAM FENRIC
Greetings everyone! It is an honour to sit here and commentate once again on what has been a spectacular Lord of the RIng tournament, as well as the huge finals contested tonight between Angelica Vaughn, Jerod Barnez and Albion Gale, we've got the XWA Supreme Championship on the line and much more that I hope all of you watching at home will enioy.MARK SANCTION
Meanwhile to my left, you know her as the reigning Union Battleground Champion, The Worst of the Pavees... as well as being Your Da's Favourite Wrestler. A lady that will be competing later on tonight as well as commentating on the first few matches of this huge event, Emery Layton!EMERY LAYTON
Alright then? My job here at the commentary table isn't over until it's over! Tonight, I'll be goin' one on one with Kaida Kagome and I don't mean to be biased as a commentator... but bloody hell ain't that gonna be a good match eh?ADAM FENRIC
I wouldn't wait till then to get excited though Emery, because kicking off the show will be two promising stars here in XWA as the menacing Blake Archer is set to face the rising Will Neilson!MARK SANCTION
You can't underestimate either of these guys, however Will might have the advantage in terms of momentum here tonight. Will reached Round 2 of the Lord of the Ring tournament, whilst Blake failed to make it out of the first round. You cannot count Archer out though, his brute and powerhouse style might just give him the upperhand against the much smaller Will.EMERY LAYTON
What are we waiting for then lads? Let's get into this!
The following contest is scheduled for one fall!'Alone in a Room'
by Asking Alexandria sounds off around MSG as a largely positive reaction welcomes the man known as Will Neilson out from the back. He pops the collar of his leather jacket and shakes his head around to warm up, beginning the walk down the ramp to the ring.
Introducing first from the West Midlands, England... weighing in at 227 lbs, he is the Great British Meme and self-proclaimed Icon of the Masses, WILL NEILSON!
Neilson slides his hand down across the bottom part of his face before raising his eyebrows up once he gets to the ring, fully focused ahead of tonight's match as he leaps up onto the apron with no hesitation and turns around to raise his arms outwards for the fans, who give him a pretty positive reaction once again. Will makes his way into the ring by climbing through the ropes, quickly scaling the nearest turnbuckle and unzipping his leather jacket in order to hold it outwards, exposing his chest and well... yeah. EMERY LAYTON
Bloody showoff! If he hadn't been putting in some impressive performances I woulda' had his life by now.ADAM FENRIC
His performance against such an exceptional performer in Cosmo Cooper was what really put him on the spot here so far in XWA, and he's got other big matches to live up to elsewhere in the wrestling world.EMERY LAYTON
Aye, but this is XWA and we gotta see if he's worth it or not.
Taking a seat now on the top turnbuckle, Neilson slightly swivels around so he's facing the entrance ramp as the music fades out being replaced by....
' by Depeche Mode, which brings out the massive lad that is Blake Archer who simply glares down at WIll sitting on the top rope and raises a single arm up in the air before making his way down the ramp.
And his opponent, from Canton, Ohio... weighing in at 295 lbs, he is the King of the Canines, BLAKE ARCHER!
Blake slowly made his way down the ramp, each step with purpose as he approaches the apron and climbs up onto the apron before heading into the ring. He raises his arms up high on opposite sides of the ring before walking over towards the opposite corner to that of Neilson, cracking his knuckles and staring down Will with probably not so good intents.ADAM FENRIC
I can't say that Blake Archer isn't anything short of intense, he's looking for a quick victory over Will tonight and with that huge size advantage... it could be over before it's even began.EMERY LAYTON
He's a big brute isn't he? A'm actually very interested to see how these two go up against each other with contrasting styles and all that.MARK SANCTION
We're about to find that out right now, this is the opening match to this year's Lord of the Ring event and it's officially underway!
The bell is rung as Will gets started with an early clap attempting to get the crowd hyped, only managing to garner a few claps back before him and Archer slowly circle each other and look to lock up in the middle of the ring. Blake has the power advantage and is able to simply push Will back towards the ropes, the latter shaking his head and knowing that he's going to have quite the challenge in front of him. Will raises his arm up and gestures for Blake to try and lock up again, only to deliver a jab to the skull at the last second which doesn't seem to do much damage at all to Archer! Will attempts a few more jabs to the skull only for Archer to tank most of them, responding with a huge right hand that knocks Will down to a knee!EMERY LAYTON
With the ball in his court, it's Archer who decides to run and rebound off the ropes and lunge forward for a big boot straight to the skull of Will... but the move is avoided as Neilson performs a roll to the side and quickly gets back to his feet! The speed of Neilson is coming into play as he's also able to run off the ropes as soon as Blake is able to notice, leaping forward and looking for a flying forearm to the face that Archer doesn't go down from at all! Blake is slightly stunned though and as soon as Will attempts a second flying forearm, it's a matter of Archer able to throw WIll up and over his head for a huge back body drop! Once again it's the power of Archer that sends Will flying up into the air and back down to the mat, Neilsona attempting to get back to his feet only to be knocked down to the ground by a second right hand.ADAM FENRIC
This is what Will has to try and overcome here tonight, the pure power and striking capability of Blake Archer. Does he have what it takes though?
Attempting to crawl towards the ropes, it's Will who tries to get the battle back on his side with Archer not letting him advance any further by stomping down on his shoulder! Will instantly goes over to clutch it, having injured it weeks ago in a match elsewhere up in Canada, however he shakes his head and doesn't want to give up which can be seen when he's hauled up by Blake and manages to deliver a huge elbow to the midsection! This doesn't stun Archer, so Will gets up onto his feet and starts throwing forearms to the skull of Blake constantly in order to barely knock him down to a single knee. It still doesn't seem to keep Blake down who manages to throw a MEGA left hand that knocks Will into the ropes... only for Neilson to charge forward and deliver a sharp Enziguri right to the side of Archer''s head!MARK SANCTION
Will managed to endure the strike long enough to counter with one of his own!EMERY LAYTON
Fighting spirit and all that!
Blake goes down as Will goes down into an early cover, the referee can't even reach one though before Archer powers out and nearly throws WIll off his chest completely! Both men are back up to their feet, but not before Will manages to kick Blake in the stomach to force him to double down and look for another running move off the ropes. Neilson looks for a dropkick of sorts in which Archer manages to block it by simply slam his hands down onto the legs of Will which knocks him onto the canvas! It doesn't take long for Will to get back up to his feet and he's greeted by another punch from Archer before being thrown off the ropes, coming off straight into Blake picking him up and using more impressive power to spin the Brit around in the air for a Spinebuster! Quickly transitioning into a cover, Archer hooks the outside leg in order to drag Will away from the ropes.
A kickout from Neilson who remains in the contest, Blake getting up to his feet to deliver a second stomp down onto the same targeted shoulder of Will before picking him back up to his feet and grabbing him by the throat! Archer waits a second or two before lifting Will up high in the air and looking for The Mark! Chokeslam! NO! Will manages to wrap his left arm around the back of Archer's head, driving it down into the mat with a Jumping DDT and escaping the Chokeslam attempt at the same time!ADAM FENRIC
That is what you call a counter! MARK SANCTION
He drove him into the mat with a DDT from the Chokeslam! That is one hell of a way to escape a move!
The 295 pounder flips over as Will is barely able to crawl over and make a pinfall attempt.
Again, it's a kickout but this time from Blake Archer who's head is slammed straight back down by Will as he tries to sit up. Neilson seems to call Blake a 'dickhead' before getting up and waiting for Archer to sit up once again, this time a bit more slower. Proceeding to raise his arms up in the air and add a sound effect of his own, Will takes aim and fires away with a huge roundhouse kick staight to the back of the seated Archer!EMERY LAYTON
Neilson takes a bow from that kick for whatever reason as he brings Blake up by the hair and looks to deliver a forearm only to receive a right hand to the gut that sends him backwards! Archer fires away with a second shot to the gut that seems to nearly wind Neilson who tries to lunge forward for a boot as Blake catches the foot, swinging his elbow down onto the knee which WIll looks to escape the grasp of Archer from only to be kept in position and thrown back towards the King of Canines in order to be thrown straight onto the latter's shoulders. Blake doesn't take long in charging forward towards the opposite corner of the ring and charging with Will on his shoulders straight into the turnbuckles! Neilson remains on Blake's shoulders as the big man makes a quick turn to face away from the corner he just charged into, running forward but instead falling back for an impactful Samoan Drop! Blake hooks both legs off the move, looking for the win!
Another kickout from Will who refuses to go down, Archer getting a bit frustrated by the slight growl he lets out. EMERY LAYTON
Oof... he's a lil' bit cross.ADAM FENRIC
Archer could explode at any second, he'll need to use that anger against Will and not against himself.
Blake Archer ruffles his hair before bringing Will up to the corner by his arms, grabbing him and looking to straight up toss him to the other side of he ring. He looks to follow through by slowly walking forward and lifting WIll above his head, however it's Neilson who tactically lands on his feet! He's a bit unsteady though as he can't act before Blake charges forward looking for a lariat only for him to miss him mark and nearly throw himself into the corner. Will helps him with that though by running and spinning around to drive his elbow to the side of Blake's head that fully stuns him! Archer falls against the turnbuckles as Will runs to the other corner, using the ropes to give himself a boost and charge for a flying dropkick that catches Blake straight on the jaw! He waits till Archer falls out before hooking the arm and grabbing his leg, jumping back slightly to connect with the Small Package Driver!MARK SANCTION
Memeingful Driver connects!EMERY LAYTON
That's what he calls that? Mad!
Neilson wraps his legs around Archer's to keep his shoulders down, getting into a pinning position.
Nope! Blake gets a shoulder up and Will is in a state of slight disbelief! He falls back onto the mat, but quickly regains his composure and shakes everything off to lift Archer up and deliver a forearm to the head that knocks him down to a knee. Will keeps going with these forearms which makes the crowd increasingly rowdier, one forearm slipping and Blake is able to rise up and lean back for a huge headbutt that sends Neilson through the ropes as he lays on the apron. Archer follows him onto the apron and lifts up the head of Neilson, putting it between his legs and looking for a Powerbomb that could yield disastrous results for Will! He goes to lift Neilson up high... but a few punches to the skull stop that move from happening as Will is let back down! Neilson charges forward looking for some sort of move...SILVER SHOT FROM OUT OF NOWHERE TO THE FLOOR! MY GOD!ADAM FENRIC
Blake Archer just risked it all and that HAS to hurt!MARK SANCTION
Neilson is out of it! Spear planting him straight to the outside!EMERY LAYTON
I wouldn't get yer hopes up for Blakey, he looks as much out of it as poor ol' Will.
A devestating Spear has taken out both men here, Neilson receiving the much more vicious end of the move as the referee begins his count in the ring to the two downed competitors on the outside.
Blake is the first one to show some signs of movement as he's able to crawl up towards the apron, using it to get back on his feet as he stares down Will who's back must be in near pieces from that last move.
The big man walks over towards WIll and is easily able to pick him up by the hair, first bringing him over towards the apron and smacking his face straight down onto it before sliding the apparent lifeless body of Will into the ring. However, Neilson has somehow, someway regained his footing but he's clearly still hurt as Blake is able to plant him with a big boot! The Great British Meme is down once again with Blake perhaps looking to go for a pin... but he doesn't, and looks up to the top rope! Archer doesn't take much time in making his decision as he scales up to the top, taking his time as the huge Archer is in an unlikely position however it would pay off huge if he connects with any move from here! He prepares himself before leaping and extending both his arms and legs out for the... 747 CRASH!WAIT!
WILL GOT THE KNEES UP! Blake ends up crashing right onto the knees of Will, bouncing off and rolling to the mat. You can tell the impact still hurt Neilson though as he takes him time using the ropes to get to his feet, eyeing up a kneeling Archer before charging forward and connecting with a Superkick! The force of the kick rocks Archer but still doesn't knock him down, Will backing up towards the corner and trying for a different approach as he charges forward looking for a running knee strike straight across the face of Archer which... doesn't knock him down! Archer instead moves JUST out of the way, sending Will into the corner who stops for a second before turning around straight into a Belly to Belly Suplex by a now standing Archer! ADAM FENRIC
The power! He's giving it all he's got!EMERY LAYTON
He ain't done yet!
Will is somehow back to his feet, Blake now taking him up and delivering a second Belly to Belly that sends him up and over and back onto the canvas! He isn't getting up from this one though, Archer having to haul him up as he's unable to get up on his own accord. The big man isn't going to complete the trifecta, instead kneeing him in the gut and getting him in a Vertical position and looking for The Descent! It looks to be all over for Will as Archer keeps him up for a while to show off his power even more, finally flipping him over to complete the move... however it's Will who slips out the back! He grabs Archer from behind and spins him out... BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE!
THAT'S IT!MARK SANCTION
He just got him with the Bullet of the Century! That's finished off many of his foes in the past!ADAM FENRIC
Blake is one hell of a machine, but I don't even think he can take a knee that strong just like that!EMERY LAYTON
Lads! There's a cover!
With a look of confidence and still stumbling around, Will dives down to hook both of Blake's legs!
WHAT?! BLAKE POWERED OUT! Archer remains in the match after kicking out of Neilson's patented knee! EMERY LAYTON
He won't give up!
Will runs his hands through his hair, looking up towards the lights as he shakes off the cobwebs and gets up to his feet. He doesn't think over Blake kicking out too much, walking over towards the corner and yelling out various shite to get Archer up to his feet. It takes a while as the King of the Canines is still recovering from that huge knee strike, eventually up to his feet as Will races forward only to raise his arm up high!
Neilson keeps his arm raised up, the crowd in near silence as he closes his eyes with Blake still trying to get his head back in the game.
YOU-JAB AVOIDED! SUPERMAN PUNCH CONNECTS! ADAM FENRIC
Archer got him!MARK SANCTION
That punch packed a lot! We could be seeing the end of WIll right now!
Literally popping up from out of absolutely nowhere, Archer is able to charge his fist and nail a Superman Punch straight to the face of Neilson which takes him right back down! Will ends up seated in the corner as Blake isn't letting him have any sort of offence back on his side, charging forward for a huge boot that knocks Neilson's head to the side and seemingly straight out! Blake tries to follow through, but doesn't and looks to take some time to recharge his batteries after using the remaining stack of his stamina to pull out that Superman Punch from being majorly stunned earlier. Will doesn't look too much better as he's had to spend the majority of this match draining Blake of his energy and using his speed to counter him, yet the big man has seemed to get around everything he's thrown at him. A few more seconds pass as Blake Archer lets out a convincing roar, going towards the corner and pulling Will out to take him down via the arm! Blake drops down as quick as he can in order to lock in the SAGITTARIUS BOW!EMERY LAYTON
If he locks this in, cor blimey it's gonna be hard for that fella to get out.MARK SANCTION
I wouldn't speak too soon! Look!
As Archer looks to apply the crossface, Neilson slips out from the back and leaps on top of the back of Blake in almost desperation with a splash! Both men felt the force of that splash as Will slides off of Blake, somehow getting back to his feet once again using the support of the ropes and proceeding to stomp down on the canvas constantly. He knows that if Archer manages to get one more huge move in on him, it could be lights out! Will slaps his chest and waits until Blake is doubled over before rebounding off the ropes and charging forward to throw his foot forward for VIVA LA LIVERPOOL!
The free kick strikes Blake and yet that doesn't even bring him fully down as he struggles to stay on his feet, eventualyl coming to rest in the corner, his back facing Will as Neilson runs at Archer to jump onto his back and lock in a flying sleeper hold!ADAM FENRIC
Will's been trying to drain the energy of Blake this entire match, he might have enough to put him to sleep!
Neilson looks to fall back into the sleeper hold for good, but ends up just falling off of Blake's back himself as Archer shakes him off with ease despite the multitude of sweat dripping off his forehead. Will isn't much better as he tries to get back to his feet, only for Blake to run up behind him and deliver a huge overhand strike that brings the meme down to the canvas once again! Blake backs up into the corner, still tired and running low on energy as he looks intent on running straight through Will and destroying him as he lets out one big ol' roar! Blake sees Neilson up onto his feet and sprints forward looking for the...SILVER SHOT!
Neilson lets him run straight past, almost making him fly into the corner but Blake backs up to see Will getting prepared as he swings upwards to catch Archer with a high kick! Blake still doesn't go down as Will swings for a second kick which Blake responds to with an elbow of his own! Archer forces Will into the ropes where he whips him off looking to connect with the Sliver SHot for good! He charges forward and aims for the Spear... HIGH SINGLE LEG DROPKICK!MARK SANCTION
He caught him! Boot connecting straight to the face!
Archer still doesn't fall as Neilson grabs him for the PINCH OF SALT! Blake's head bounces off of Will's shoulder before Neilson pulls him in and hooks the arm, wasting no time in barely managing to lift the stunned big man up and spike him down with the...LAG SPIKE!EMERY LAYTON
Lag Spike! I 'member that one!ADAM FENRIC
That's two finishing manouevers executed by Will this match! It could be all over!
Neilson takes his time as he falls backwards onto the pin, his shoulders nearly touching the mat but overall he's pinning Archer down!
'Alone in a Room' plays again as Will rolls off of Blake, getting up onto his knees where he holds the side of his chest whilst being helped up to his feet by the referee and having his arm raised up high in the air.
Here is your winner... WILL NEILSON!MARK SANCTION
These two threw everything they had at each other and it was simply a matter of who would break first, and unfortunately for Blake it was Will who outlasted him and also who walks away with a victory!ADAM FENRIC
As Emery said earlier, this was a battle of two very different styles and ultimately we know that the speed of Will beat out the power of Blake. What a match though!EMERY LAYTON
I always say the good stuff, innit?
Neilson rolls out of the ring as Blake Archer runs his hands through his head, not believing what just went down as Will can't help but fall back at the end of the ramp, sitting down and wiping some of the sweat from his head before standing up and raising his arms up high once again, having earned a victory to kick off proceedings at the Lord of the RIng event!
