Mark Sanction: Ladies and Gents it looks like it is time for our MAIN EVENT!!! As we will finally see the XWA Tag Team Championships decided between Rated X and Danger Liam and a partner of his choice … if he has somehow managed to find anyone. I mean Tempest is out of the running, Rose has been through hell with Drama and Angelus has had an amazing match with the Godfather.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Stop making excuses for him Mark the long and short of it is Liam could be teaming with all three of those guys and the outcome would still be the same. Rated X ARE walking out of here tonight with the XWA Tag Team Championships.
Mark Sanction: We’ll see about that Jord, but before we get to this match we have some footage to show you from over in PRW. This past week Rated X defended their Tag Team Championships against a team called the Hierarchy but at the end of the match … well let’s just take a look.
Up on the XWA-Tron we cut to the footage from PRW Tough Love.
DGX scoops up Silva as he staggers around dazed and gets him up and in position as he turns to position the end of the move perfectly before he pushes on Silva’s heels and quickly sits down nailing Silva with the whiplash effect of the Centripetal Force! DGX rolls out of the way as Sean takes to the skies following this with four hundred and fifty degree revolutions in the air crushing down Silva with a devastating 450 Splash! Sean rolls out of the ring and is to a knee holding his sternum as DGX rushes over to the corner and clocks Williamson neutralizing the ring announcer momentarily as this was happening! Rivera turns around and DGX hungrily pounces on the cover, locking up Silva’s leg as he looks to score Rated X its second successful title retention!
Rated X retain
DGX rolls from the cover as Alex gets into the ring and both men stand victorious in the middle of the ring raising the PRW Tag Team Gold HIGH in the air. The Hierarchy head up the ramp into the back and as Alex climbs down out of the ring the crowd erupts in a fit of excitement. DGX spins to look around the arena and …
A man dressed in a disgusting amount of Purple takes him to the ground with a sickening shot with a steel chair.
Josh Brunswick: What the hell!?
The Purple clad warrior stands over the downed DGX for a moment before Alex cottons on to the attack and slides into the ring. As he does the attacker looks down at him and Sean stops for a split second as it becomes obvious he recognizes the man. The Purple Menace tosses aside the chair and the two trades off blows in the middle of the ring, there is a good bit of back and forth before the Purple Wonder gets the better of the match worn Tag Champ forcing him into the corner and planting a few stiff elbows. With Alex rocked for a split second he takes his time to takes a few steps back and then run in leaping through the air and hitting an overly flamboyant clothesline that sees him sitting on the middle rope.
Doug Smith: Wait a minute isn’t that …
The Attacker pulls Alex from the corner and steadies him in the middle of the ring; he twists and turns him into position for what looks to be an unprettier before leaping through the air himself going a perfect 360 and driving Alex face first into the canvas next to his unconscious partner.
Doug Smith: It is, I know that guy he’s that Danger guy from over in the XWA, tonight’s becoming some kind of invasion.
This ‘Danger’ guy slides from the ring and snatches a mic from ringside.
‘Danger’ Guy: Rated X, you’ve had your fun the last few weeks playing games and using your power to try and get the better of us but you’re not the only ones who can ‘shock’ and believe me boy’s this is only the beginning of it. Sunday me and my ‘partner’ are going to knock you down from your soap box and put you in your place.
The ‘Danger’ Guy slides back into the ring and picks up one of the PRW Tag Team championship belts.
‘Danger’ Guy: Oh well I guess at least you’ll be able to dry your tears on these … for as long as you have them at least. Tell you what boys when you FINALLY come to, watch this back and just remember that ‘DANGER LIAM’ is the one that left you motionless in ‘your’ ring, in ‘your’ company because I’m Better Than YOU!
Doug Smith: Danger Liam! That’s the guy’s name.
Liam drops the Mic and slides from the ring as ‘A Box Full Of Sharp Objects’ rains over the somewhat shocked PRW crowd.
We cut to outside Danger Liam’s locker room as he comes out of the door. He is met by Sarah as Cubes stops to talk to his ex-wife.
Sarah: How did it go? Have you managed to get a partner tonight?
Danger Liam: Yeah, it has taken me all day and I’ve called in a whole load of favors that have come to nothing but I got myself a partner.
Sarah: Who we talking about here then? Will? The Animal? Slayne? Please tell me you managed to get hold of G? The War Machine would rip apart Rated X.
Danger Liam: Nah love, I’ve decided to go a bit of a different way with it this time around.
Sarah: Who is it then?
Liam stops for a moment before poking his head into the locker room.
Danger Liam: Wanna come say hello?
There is a pause for a moment before Liam turns back and takes the camera pointing it at Sarah’s face as the door opens, we can’t see what’s inside the locker room but we can see Sarah’s reaction. That of mild shock but then a smile falls across her face as she realizes that this really means war.
We faded back to ringside.
Mark Sanction: Who can it be?
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: I still don’t think there is anyone coming out here with Liam he’s just bluffing.
The bell rings as Hana takes her place in the middle of the ring.
Hana Ramierez: Ladies and Gents the following is TONIGHTS MAIN EVENT! And it will decide the NEW XWA TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP. Introducing first …
I Can't Stand It I Know You Planned It
But I'm a Set It Straight, This Watergate
I Can't Stand Rocking When I'm In Here
Because Your Crystal Ball Ain't So Crystal Clear
So While You Sit Back and Wonder Why
I Got This Fucking Thorn In My Side
Oh My God, It's A Mirage
I'm Tellin' Y'all It's a Sabotage
Wasting no time, the current PRW Tag Team Champions walk toward the ring at a busy pace. The atmosphere in the arena turning up an octave in noise level with the music belies a firm and strong connection between this duo and a pro wrestling audience.
Hana Ramierez: Making their way to the ring at a combined weight of four hundred and fifty pounds. They are the current PRW Tag Team Champions, Alex Sean and the XWA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION DGX, who is also one half of the current WFWF Tag Team Champions….. They are known to all of us as…… RATED EEEEXXXXX!!!!
Mark Sanction: My God has DGX really had Hana reel of that list of accomplishment? How pathetic, most of it isn’t even relevant to the XWA.
So Listen Up 'Cause You Can't Say Nothin'
You'll Shut Me Down With A Push Of Your Button
But I'm Out And I'm Gone
I'll Tell You Now I Keep It On And On
'Cause What You See You Might Not Get
And We Can Bet So Don't You Get Souped Yet
You're Scheming On A Thing That's A Mirage
I'm Trying To Tell You Now It's Sabotage
As the two men reach the ringside area, DGX wastes no time in gently shoving past Sean, looking back in a sly grin as "The Constant" laughingly nods in acceptance. A display such as this one is one born of years of camaraderie and a real but friendly rivalry between two individuals both ravenous with the hunger to be the best in the world. On paper a team comprised of such ambition would seem destined to tear itself apart but for years now it’s fueled the meteoric and almost mythic rise of this tandem to a tag team prominence not seen since the great Legion of Doom. Their choice of theme reflects this dynamic as the divide of their egos is truly the ‘mirage’, in actual fact the core of what propels the tandem to its dominance. DGX walks up the steps and to the apron where he takes a few wide steps followed by a spin and lean against the ropes. Just at this moment the harsh synth line takes over the song as Alex Sean leaps in place at the front of the ring steps. Then, with the lead in bass-line and crash cymbal hitting once again, DGX steps through the middle and top rope and Alex Sean runs up the ring steps and follows in suit.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: This one is going to go down in history. By the end of tonight DGX will be a Tag Team Champion in three companies at the same time as well as holding the XWA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! Why does Liam even think he has a chance here?
Mark Sanction: Maybe because he does? Do you not remember how this all panned out at Xmas Kaos?
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Yeah but that was bullshit and you know it!
Finally, Alex Sean walks toward the opposite corner, grabs the top rope, and pulls himself upward and balances with one foot on the middle turnbuckle and the other on the top. Sean does not pose but simply looks out to the crowd. After a few moments, he rests his elbows on his upraised knee for a short time, then leaps off and, upon landing, crouches down while DGX looks up at the ramp awaiting the Dangerous One.
Hana Ramierez: And their opponents, first …
'A Box Full of Sharp Objects' booms out over the XWA crowd as the lights dim slightly. The crowd erupts into a ruckus amount of noise as they scream and shout in anticipation of the Dangerous One. First out onto the stage is Sarah who looks out over the crowd with a look of pure joy on her face before throwing back her arms and beckoning out the Human Rubik's Cube!
The Purple Menace explodes out onto the stage and immediately throws his signature pose.
Cubes takes in his ovation for a moment before looking to the ring and storming down with a full head of steam but instead of sliding into the ring he slams on the breaks at ringside.
Hana Ramierez: Hailing from Coseley, England. He stands six feet two inches tall and weighs in at two-hundred and twenty-six pounds. He is ‘The Human Rubik’s Cube’ DANGER LIAAAMMM!!!
And his partner …
There is silence for a moment as Liam looks back up the ramp but then as a silent hush falls over the crowd as all the lights in the arena are turned off, except for a single spotlight that shines on the empty stage.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: I knew it… See he has no partner!!!!!
Suddenly the spotlight goes off, and now with the arena in pitch darkness the Xtremetron turns on with the following countdown….
A countdown from 20 starts and as it gets to the end and the explosion is heard through the entire arena as two twin lightning bolts come exploding from the ceiling, from opposite directions, yet strike the stage in the same exact spot that the spotlight previously was illuminating. The crowd erupts in anticipation of the mystery partner, when the Xtremetron then shows this following clips.
The XWA crowd explodes in a fit of excitement and shock, as The Great One; AKA: Lucifer "The MadDog"’ McMahon makes his triumphant return to action and is seen for the first time tonight standing on the stage!
Mark Sanction: OH MY GOD! IT’S MADDOG!!!!! Liam’s partner is MadDog!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: That son of a bitch was fired! He was banned from this company! How in the hell did Liam get HIM approved to be here tonight as his partner?
Mark Sanction: Liam said he was calling in some favors… I guess we will have to find out soon enough what favors were called in, but it appears that as of now The MadDog is BACK in the XWA!!!!!
MadDog pauses on the center of the stage to take a few moments to soak in his ovation from his millions of fans as the cameras zoom in on Rated X are they are trying not to show a bit of concern. MadDog then proceeds to strut as only he can as he makes his way down the ramp and walks up to Liam and they exchange a glace before the two slide into the ring. MadDog looks out of the crowd as Liam climbs to the top rope and as Cubes throws his arms out.
MadDog flex’s out his arms looking over the audience. Liam drops down as MadDog climbs out to the ring apron and Alex on the other side of the ring does the same as it looks like this match is set to get underway between Danger Liam and DGX.
Mark Sanction: And here we go it’s finally time to decide the XWA Tag Team champions.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Yeah, it’s time to go home since MadDog is banned from the XWA…. By him just being here allows the referee to give the titles to Rated X by forfeit!!!
The bell sounds as Liam and DGX take a moment to feel each other out, staying just out of arms length from each other. Both men crouch at it looks like they are acting out an amateur-wrestling bout before Liam dives forward looking to grab at DGX’s leg. The World champion sidesteps Liam’s lunge and again the two men stand off against each other. For a moment they are still before slamming into a collar and elbow tie up.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: This is boring, get on with it Dee this shouldn’t really be taking that long.
Liam manages to switch up his positioning and shoot the go behind but after throwing back and elbow DGX switches behind himself. It’s an oddly technical start to this match as DGX lifts Cubes for a German Suplex but Liam shifts his weight in time and both men fall to the canvas but the World Champion doesn’t break his grip. Both men roll around the ring for a moment as Liam tries his best to break the grip of the champion.
Mark Sanction: DGX is making life tricky for the Dangerous One, I wouldn’t have thought in a match like this that it would be DGX on top of the technical game.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: DGX is toying with him Mark, showing why HE is the world champion.
Liam finally manages to get free of the champions grip and grabs going for a wrist lock but DGX quickly snaps free and both men leap back the their feet back to a stalemate. Again the two men find themselves in a standoff but as the two men look across at each other the crowd explodes into a sea of whooping and cheers as they shout for the Dangerous One. Out on the ring apron MadDog leaps up and down to get the fans into even more of a frenzy.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: What are these idiots cheering for? Do they honestly think that has been and that upstart punk have a chance here?
Mark Sanction: Upstart punk? You know Liam has been in this business for TEN years!
Hearing the crowd, DGX charges in looking for another quick tie up but this time it’s the Dangerous One who throws out a foot hitting swift kick to the gut. Cubes then locks his arms around the head of the world champion squeezing in a headlock. Liam twists and torques as DGX pushes him towards the topes then shoots him across the ring, DGX drops as Liam jumps over him then on the rebound DGX leapfrogs the Dangerous One and on the finally bounce back the Purple Wonder is sent flying with a huge hip toss.
Mark Sanction: OUCH! There was some massive airtime on that hip toss. Liam hit that mat HARD!
Cubes is quick back up to his feet but finds himself getting tossed with a second hip toss. This time DGX keeps hold of Cubes arm though as he laces it and tries to damn near tear it from its socket. It takes him a moment but the Danger Man is able to roll through the hold but as he gets back to his feet DGX dives and him driving him into the Rated X corner.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: This is sad to watch; he tries and tries all this nonsense but Rated X just keeps on top of him.
Mark Sanction: You truly have a warped view of this match. Come to think of it you have a warped view of matches in general.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Blow me Sanction.
With Liam being held up in the corner DGX makes the tag and Alex comes into the ring hitting the swift boot to the gut as DGX still holds of the Dangerous One. The World Champion heads out to the ring apron as Alex takes hold of Cubes head taking him to the next buckle over and crashing his head into it. Alex hits a few elbow smashes and a few knees to the gut before going for the whip, Cubes turns it around though and Alex goes slamming into the corner. Liam charges in leaping through the air and hitting the Danger Paver racking Alex’s brain for a moment.
Mark Sanction: A nice comeback there from Cubes.
Liam rolls Alex up out of the corner as Tickles drops for the
ONE … TWO … REVERSAL!
With Alex on top of the cover Tickles counts again.
ONE … TWO … REVERSED AGAIN!
Liam back on top Tickles continues to count.
ONE … TWO … REALLY ANOTHER REVERSAL?
Yes really another one as Alex is looking to end this one as Tickles does his job yet again.
ONE … TWO … KICK OUT!!!
Both men leap to their feet.
Mark Sanction: I’m not even sure what we just watched Tickles slapped the canvas about 10 times but we still have no winner.
Cubes snaps off a few swift kicks as he pushes Alex into the corner, he hits a few mocking slaps then raps Sean from the corner. Alex breaks from Liam’s grip and tries to hook him for another hip toss but Cubes blocks the toss with a leg over Alex’s, as quick as a hiccup Sean rolls through with a grip of Cubes leg in a grape vine and while in the middle of the ring he twists it into a heel hook.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: He’s tapping ring the bell!
Mark Sanction: He’s reaching for the ROPE! Seriously can someone send Pain back out here and get this idiot away from my desk.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Pain is dead!
Mark Sanction: Well now you’re just being petty.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: YOUR FACE!
Mark Sanction: Brilliant.
It takes him a while but Cubes finally manages to reach out and grip the bottom rope, but Alex just laughs as he keeps hold and forces Tickles to make the count.
ONE … TWO … THREE … FOUR … FI … Alex releases the hold.
MadDog screams into the ring furiously demanding that Alex is reprimanded. Alex gets up and shouts at MadDog but as he goes to attack the Cube again Tickles steps in front of him to have a word about the blatant disregard of the rules. Whiles he is doing this Cubes drags himself to his corner and makes the tag to MadDog as the crowd erupt with a HUGE POP!
Mark Sanction: He’s back! And now this match is going to become serious.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: And you’re saying it wasn’t before.
Mark Sanction: I’m saying shut the hell up Scorps.
MadDog steps into the ring and Alex looks at him for a moment before offering out his hand with a sarcastic grin on his face. McMahon looks down at Alex’s hand before looking back at him shaking his head and then unloading a bombardment of clubbing rights and lefts. He goes for the whip but Alex hooks the top rope and then leaps at MadDog driving a knee in his gut. Alex tries his look floating over for a cover but Lucifer powers free before even a count of one.
Mark Sanction: Did he really think that was going to work?
MadDog is quick to his feet, he throws a huge right hand but Alex ducks the impact and then leaps to grab a front face lock. Alex damn near throws his back out trying for a suplex but McMahon refuses to even raise a millimeter from the canvas. Sean tries one more time and still has no luck but as MadDog hoists him for a suplex of his own Alex spins his hips and lands on his feet behind MadDog. McMahon bounces off the ropes looking to decapitate Sean but before he can throw a clothesline Alex dives forward catching MadDog square in the chops with a spinning wheel kick.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Right in the jaw! What a shot, MadDog’s out cold ring the bell.
Mark Sanction: I’m glad you don’t get paid to be a ref around here.
Sean covers McMahon and Tickles is quick to slide in for the count.
ONE … TWO … CLOSR THIS TIME BUT STILL THE KICKOUT.
Before letting MadDog up Alex locks in a headlock, it’s not long however before he is shot off the ropes. On the rebound he hops over McMahon but as he hits the ropes the dangerous man drives a shin into his spine catching Alex in Rated X’s own dirty moves.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: DQ! Come on Tickles do your fucking JOB! That’s Illegal!!!
Mark Sanction: Let’s see if you jump to that when Rated X start the same shit.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: I’m sure if they do anything even a little like that it will only be out of retaliation for that disgusting act of cheating.
With Alex down for a moment MadDog makes the tag to the Dangerous One and for a moment both men get there licks in as the kick and stop away at Alex until Tickles steps in to get MadDog out of the ring.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Are you condoning this Mark?
Mark Sanction: I’m not saying anything about it it’s you shouting on about the rules.
Cubes continues the abuse with a few more kicks before dragging Alex by his ankle to the bottom rope. He places Sean’s ankle on the bottom rope and stands on it before leaping into the air and driving his tailbone down into the knee of Alex Sean. He drives down a second time as Alex lets out a scream of agony before scurrying away from the ropes. The Danger Man reaches down and scoops up Alex from the canvas before tossing his into the loyalist’s corner.
Mark Sanction: Liam now slowing the pace of this match, it looks like the XWA are finally getting into the driving seat of this match.
With Alex in the corner Cubes takes a moment to mouth of at DGX, the World Champ tires to come into the ring but Tickles quickly rushes to cut him of and keep him out of the ring. With Tickles distracted MadDog wraps his huge arm around the throat of Alex Sean and chokes him for a good few moments before seeing Tickles and letting go of the grip. MadDog drops Alex and Cubes makes his way back to the corner and drops a few more shots for good measure then tosses Alex across the ring. Sean manages to reverse the whip but the Dangerous One slams on the breaks before hitting the corner dropping to his knees then as Alex rushes in at him Liam leaps up shouting ‘Tiger Uppercut’ at the top of his lungs as he hits the sticker peal. Before Alex has time to fall to the canvas Cubes shoots behind him and hits his snap german suplex then goes for the cover.
Mark Sanction: Cubes may have dazed Sean enough for this to do it.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Yeah I’m sure he has.
Tickles drops for the count.
ONE … TWO … THR … NOT ENOUGH!
With a dazed look in his eyes Alex is again pulled up to his feet and this time Cubes plants him in the middle of the ring with a simple but hugely effective back breaker before going for another cover.
ONE … TWO … THRE … STILL NOT ENOUGH!
As he gets to his feet Cubes rakes his boot across the face of Alex Sean before reaching over and tagging in MadDog. They use their five count to both whip Alex at the ropes before flipping him through the air with a double clothesline. The two then take a leg each giving Sean a wishbone just for the hell of it before Liam makes his way out onto the ring apron.
Mark Sanction: This is some pretty sound teamwork here from Liam and McMahon.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: They’re cheating! That’s not a strategy.
Mark Sanction: It seems to be when Rated X are the ones using it.
Like a dog with a bone MadDog picks the scraps, as he drops to his hands and knees and drives a few head butts into a prone Alex Sean. McMahon hits a forth hard but then gets up pulls Sean to his feet with him. MadDog shoots Alex across the ring but the ever-resourceful Sean leaps over the telegraph attempt with a sunset flip. Before Tickles can see what’s happening though Cubes has a leg through the ropes and has to be held back. There could easily be a count of 5 before Liam finally gets back out of the ring, Tickles turns but does count because he sees DGX getting into the ring and has to rush over to get him out too. When he finally does turn to the action he sees the cover and drops for the count.
ONE … TWO … MADDY POWERS FREE!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: This is horseshit! That should have been the end of it! This is beyond a fucking JOKE!
Mark Sanction: Calm down a little ay Jord, you do know you worked for the XWA right? Not Rated X?
MadDog gets up quickly as Alex moans about the count, as he turns around though he is damn near knocked out as MadDog springs at him from the ropes and clatters his huge arm into the throat of Sean with the Long Leash. McMahon looks down at the prone Alex before reaching over and tagging back in the Dangerous One.
Mark Sanction: This is pretty sound, frequent tags, keeping Alex away from DGX. You can see why Liam had so much tag team success before coming into the XWA.
Cubes picks up Alex legs looking for the Two Turn Solution but Sean kicks away the Purple Menace, Liam dives back atop Alex and works on his knee a little more with elbows and kicks, before wrapping his own leg around his knee lacing it up. Cubes pulls at Alex knee as Sean tries to rakes Liam’s eyes and pull at his hair trying to do anything to get free. The Dangerous One eventually lets up on the hold but as he stands he is still holding Alex leg and quickly slams back down to the canvas pulling Sean’s legs almost out of its joint.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Come on do something Dee!
Mark Sanction: You can see that the World Champion is getting a little restless out on the apron.
The Danger Man rolls to the corner and makes the tag again, McMahon climbs into the ring but breezes straight past Alex as he storms across the ring knocking DGX off the apron out to the floor. DGX leaps up and tries to slide into the ring but Tickles is forced again to stop him.
Mark Sanction: It’s weird seeing the fan favorites playing these heel’ish’ tricks so well.
With DGX still being held off MadDog pulls Alex to his feet and lifts him up onto his shoulder, it looks like he is setting up for a doomsday device as Liam climbs to the top rope, but instead of a clothesline Cubes dives forward smashing a knee into the face of Sean with a modified version of the DanJa Vu.
Mark Sanction: WHAT A MOVE!!!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Illegal!
McMahon rolls out of the ring as Liam stays in place for the cover but luckily for Rated X Tickles is still dealing with an irate DGX. By the time DGX is finally out of the ring Tickles turns and slides in for the cover.
ONE … TWO … THREEEEEVER SO CLOSE!!!!
Mark Sanction: JUST!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: He was just taking his time, don’t stress yourself Sanction.
Liam sits up of the cover a little shocked and does a bit of complaining about the count, DGX reaches out with all he can stretch but can’t reach Alex. Cubes looks down and chuckles a little bit to himself before pulling up Sean but then gets shocked as Alex manages to roll up the Danger Man in a small package.
ONE … TWO … TH … LIAM JUST GETS FREE WITH A LOOK OF SHOCK ON HIS FACE.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: It’s that easy for Rated X Mark.
With MadDog half in the ring trying to break the count Tickles has to deal with him and as Liam goes for a roll up of his own DGX comes into the ring and flips the two men so that Alex is the one on top of the cover. Tickles turns and drops for yet another count.
ONE … TWO … WOW THAT ONE ALMOST COST THE XWA!
Mark Sanction: Even I gotta give that one to Rated X that was a really smart move by DGX there.
Cubes tries to reach out and make the tag but Alex catches him from behind and quickly gets him in position before tossing him up and over with his patented half nelson slam. Sean snaps back into life and throws himself at the ropes but on the bounce finds himself getting tripped by MadDog. Again Cubes hits DGX brining him into the ring and MadDog on the other side of the ring makes his way in and drags Alex to his feet then hooks his arms as Liam hits the ropes. The Danger Man leaps through the air for his flying forearm but Sean throws back his foot catching MadDog with a low blow that lets him get out of the hold and causes Liam and McMahon to crash into each other.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: YES!!
Sean scurries up the ropes and then flips through the air knocking the wind out of the Danger Man with a moonsault, Sean stays atop Liam for the cover and Tickles drops.
ONE … TWO … THR … MADDOG MAKES THE SAVE!!!
Tickles forces MadDog out of the ring as Alex dives and finally makes the tag to DGX who hits the ring with a fast pace and a prefect standing dropkick to the jaw of the Purple Menace. Tickles again down for the cover.
ONE … TWO … LIAM KICKS FREE!!!
DGX’s momentum continues as he grabs a handful of hair and pulls Liam to his feet only to drop him with the 3.0 and then drops atop him for another cover.
ONE … TWO … LIAM AGAIN GETS FREE!!!
DGX refuses to let up and this time with a little more force ragdolls Cubes to his feet to plant him again quite abruptly in the middle of the ring with his fisherman’s swinging neck breaker, and again floats into the cover.
ONE … TWO … STILL NOT THREE!!!
Mark Sanction: DGX is well and truly going on the attack here.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: He has turned this around quicker than a whore on a street corner.
Mark Sanction: How does a whore on a …
DGX makes the tag back to Sean and Rated X take their turn to use the five count to their advantage. They hit the double whip then send Cubes flying through the air with a massive double back drop and as DGX dives out of the ring Alex goes for the cover.
ONE … TWO … THR … CUBES SHOOTS A SHOULDER FREE
The Dangerous One looks like he’s really struggling to stay in this one now as Alex pulls him from the canvas and lifts him up before dropping a sit out powerbomb as Alex hold on to Liam for the cover.
ONE … TWO … THRE … NO! SOMEHOW LIAM SPINS OUT OF THE COVER!
Alex rolls back and makes the tag to DGX who comes in and stalks Liam as he tries to get back to his feet. Cubes only gets as far as his knees before DGX grows bored and rags him up before throwing him over head with a snapped belly-to-belly and another cover.
ONE … TWO … THR …… MADDY MAKES THE SAVE!!!!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Get him out of the fucking ring! This match should be over. We can all see that Liam has no fight left in him.
Tickles starts to get MadDog back out of the ring but Sean comes into the ring and charges across knocking McMahon down and kicking him out of the ring. Alex looks back at DGX and Liam as they are both to their feet, Alex whips Liam across the ring and on the rebound jumps over him but Cubes runs straight into the Breakdown! He is hit with enough force to send him spinning around giving Alex time to drive him into the canvas with the Bolt of Burning Arrow. DGX drops for the cover but Tickles has to take the time to get Alex out of the ring before making the count.
ONE … TWO ...
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: It’s OVER!!!
THRE …. MADDOG JUST, AND BY JUST I MEAN YOU COULD HARDLY GET A PLAYING CARD BETWEEN TICKLES HAND AND THE CANVAS, BUT MADDOG JUST MAKES THE SAVE.
Again Tickles has to gets MadDog out of the ring … this match really starting to become a real job to officiate, DGX rags Cubes up to his feet and Liam has a real hazy look in his eyes as he is pushed into the Rated X corner. DGX tags back to Alex who comes in and grabs hold of Liam’s leg, he mouths of at the Purple Menace for a moment before looking to do some real damage. Just as he goes to move however Liam uses all the strength he has left to throw out his leg and hit an enziguri that echoes throughout the entire arena.
Mark Sanction: COME ON LIAM!!!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: COME ON ALEX!!!
Both men are motionless for a moment as Tickles is forced to start a count.
ONE … TWO … THREE … FOUR … Liam starts to stir … FIVE … Alex pushes up to his knees … SIX … Liam gets to a foot … SEVEN … Sean looks around to see where he is … EIGHT Cubes reaches out for the tag … NINE … JUST AS LIAM IS GOING TO MAKE THE TAG DGX STORMS ACROSS THE RING KNOCKING MADDY OFF THE RING APRON THEN HE DRAGS CUBES BACK INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING.
Mark Sanction: OH COME ON!!!
With DGX back out on the apron Sean looks to slow down the pace of this match as he locks in a Sleeper dead center of the ring. Cubes looks to be fading and Tickles has to come in to check, he raises his arm and it drops once … twice … three NO! Liam just keeps his arm up. Cubes starts to fight back pushing himself to his feet but Alex drags him to the corner and makes another tag to DGX. Alex whips the Purple Wonder at the ropes and as he springs back DGX plants him in the middle of the ring with the swinging sidewalk slam. DGX laughs at the Cube before tagging Alex back into the action.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: Wrap it up boys I might still be able to get to the last showing of Never Say Never.
Mark Sanction: NEVER SAY NEVER? Really? Really?
Sean locks in his Guillotine choke and Cubes struggles for any way to get out of the hold. The Purple Menace looks to be fading out and has to use all of his strength and skill to push back to his feet and then power to his feet but Alex tweaks the hold and then hits Liam with a scruffy but effective Brain Buster.
ONE … TWO … LIAM GETS FREE!!!
Sean can sense that he and DGX have this match wrapped up now as he takes his time pulling the Dangerous One to his feet but this confidence back fires as the Purple Warrior snaps out of Sean’s grip and grabs hold of him tossing him up and over with the Ego Dent before diving near half way across the ring and tagging in McMahon.
Mark Sanction: HERE COMES THE MADDOG!!!!
MadDog comes rushing into the ring and leaps into the air and quickly levels Alex with a vicious clothesline. Then MadDog leaps high into the air and proceeds to drop an elbow into Alex Sean’s chest, knocking a bit of the remaining wind out of him. MadDog then grabs Alex and pulls him to his feet, and shoves him as hard as he can into the corner that DGX is standing in. MadDog then proceeds to lay in some vicious chops to Alex’s chest, turning it a deep red from the repeated slaps! The referee allows this to continue for a few brief moments, then attempts to step in to allow Alex to leave the corner and get this match to continue. MadDog screams at the referee for trying to stop him, and proceeds to pummel Alex in the corner, as DGX steps as far back away from the corner as he can to stay out of MadDog’s reach. The referee has had enough and then grabs MadDog by the arm, and pulls him off Alex, who slumps in the corner. MadDog turns his attention then to the referee and shoves him backwards towards the center of the ring as MadDog goes to confront the senior XWA referee.
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: MadDog has lost his friggin mind! Disqualify him already!
MadDog screams at the referee asking him just what in the hell is he doing by stopping him, as the referee screams back at MadDog telling him if he continues he will disqualify him! However, in the corner DGX sees an opportunity and quickly tags his partner to get into the action and attempts to come up behind MadDog, but MadDog being the ring veteran that he is, sees DGX moving out of the corner of his eye and unleashes a HeelBone Superkick into the side of his face, which quickly drops DGX to the mat. MadDog then takes advantage and drops and covers him for a pin!
ONE…. TWO….. THR…..
Before the referee can make the third count, Alex regains enough of his senses and stumbles out of the corner and leaps onto MadDog’s back and by doing this he breaks the count. MadDog quickly gets to his feet and grabs Alex by the arm and pulls him up and in one swift motion he whips him off towards the ropes. Alex bounces off of them and MadDog grabs him with his left hand around Alex’s throat in a choke hold! DGX slowly gets to his feet at this time, and MadDog proceeds to grab DGX around the throat with is right hand in a similar choke hold!
Mark Sanction: I don’t believe it!!!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: He’s can’t pull this off, he’s not THAT Strong!
Mark Sanction: Oh yes he is…. A Double Choke Collar Slam!!!!
MadDog proceeds to lift both Alex & DGX up off the ground as high as he can, why applying the choke hold on their throats! The crowd pop’s and cheers as the referee has no choice but to attempt a count to get MadDog to break the hold.
ONE…… TWO…… THREE….. FOUR……. FI….
Before the referee can finish the five count and disqualify him, MadDog proceeds to slam both Alex & DGX down as hard as he can onto the mat. MadDog then motions for Liam to enter the ring, as MadDog grabs both of DGX’s legs, Liam does the same to Alex and they both attempt to lock in their patented finishing maneuvers – The Two Step Solution and The LegBreaker, both of which are modified versions of The Sharpshooter!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: This can’t be happening!!!!
Mark Sanction: Oh yes it can!!!!
With all of his might, MadDog pulls back as hard as he can on DGX’s leg to cinch in the deadly hold, as Liam does the same with Alex. Since only MadDog & DGX are the two legal men in the ring, and Liam and Alex are not legal at this moment, the referee is allowing this double team action to continue since it is not interfering with the legal tandem. However, in actions like this when deadly holds are applied, for the person applying the hold it will be just mere seconds and minutes passing in time, but for opponent that has the hold applied to them it will feel like hours and days, it is inevitable that one of the two men that are locked in these painful holds will finally succumb to the pain and have no choice but to do it, and tap out and scream for the pain to stop.
Mark Sanction: It’s over!!!!! He tapped!!!!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: No it ain’t!!!!! Alex is not the legal man!!!!
For once in this entire night, Jordan Michaels is somewhat correct in his call, for it is Alex that screams out “I QUIT” and repeatedly hits the mat to signify he is tapping out and wants this match to end. However, since he is NOT the legal man, the referee ignores him and pays closer attention to MadDog & DGX, as MadDog pulls back even farther on DGX’s legs to apply even more deadly pressure on both of his legs and lower back.
Mark Sanction: This can’t go on much longer…. How much pain can he take?
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: DGX is the World Heavyweight Champion… He is the best at what he does for a reason… He will find a way to reverse this hold!!!!!
With sweat pouring down MadDog’s face, he uses every last bit of strength that he has to pull back on DGX’s legs and continues to apply the hold. The veins are popping out of MadDog’s arms as DGX continues to scream in pain. The referee continues to ask DGX if he wishes to submit, and of course being the World Champion, DGX screams” No!” over and over again and shakes his head from side to side just to make sure the referee understands that he is not giving up in any way, shape, or form! However, as superhuman as DGX might believe he is, he is a mere mortal of a man and ever man does have a point when they can no longer continue, and DGX is rapidly approaching his as his face is growing paler by the second as the hold is applied and DGX is getting softer and softer as the pain is becoming too much even for the greatest of men, then it happens. DGX’s head lands on the mat and he grows quiet and still and no longer moves in any way. The referee does the right thing and immediately calls for the bell to signify that this match is over!
Jordan ‘Scorpion’ Michaels: I don’t believe this crap! That is an illegal hold!!! MadDog is not a XWA Superstar…. He was not allowed to participate in this match!!!!!!
Mark Sanction: Cry, Bitch and moan all you want…. But you better believe it… We finally have NEW XWA Tag Team Champions!!!!
The bell rings repeatedly over and over as the crowd explodes and the referee tells MadDog and Liam that they won the match. It takes a few moments for the two of them to realize that they did it, and they both slowly release the holds and stand up and look at one another. Liam holds his hand towards MadDog to signify his friendship, and MadDog grabs a hold of it, and pulls him in close and hugs him in the ring and then lifts Liam’s arm high in the air! The crowd is going crazy and cheering like mad as the arena is now being littered by thousands of pieces of purple confetti fall from the roof all over the ring and crowd! MadDog’s music starts playing as the referee asks the timekeeper to give him the belts, and then the referee proceeds to hand one belt to each of the new champions. MadDog then proceeds to climb one of the corner turnbuckles, as Liam does the same in the opposite corner and the two champions hold aloft the Tag Team Championship Belts for all the fans in attendance to see, as well as the Millions and Millions of fans watching at home as the PPV show goes to a close!
