Jon McDaniel: Welcome to Rampage, everyone!  We're gonna get right to the action!

Brian Rentfro: Hey Jon? Why are we wearing each other's colors tonight!? 

Jon McDaniel: I don't know, blame wardrobe!

Brian Rentfro:  I will.  I was wondering if it had to do with you getting fired on Chaos!

Jon McDaniel: Don't go there! Hey, something's happening backstage before our first match!

Backstage, Scottie Snow and King Agony are seen talking. The camera can't pick up what they're saying, but we do see Snow hand King Agony a large wad of cash. The two men shake hands and walk away in opposite directions.

Jon McDaniel: What the hell was that all about?

Brian Rentfro: It looks like Scottie Snow was stacking the deck against Moke Doshky!

Project X vs Nightmare


DING DING

Eric Emerson: "The following match is set for one fall.Introducing first, from Parts Unknown weighing 352 pounds and standing an even 7 feet.... Project X!"

The house lights drop and are taken over by the illumination of red strobe lights that dance about the PWA ramp. "Hysteria" by Muse hits the PA system as a bright white light blasts out from the back, against this light the outline of Project X can be made as he jogs on the spot, preparing
himself for the task ahead. When the music reaches it's peak, he bursts forth in a rush of energy and launches his chokeslamming arm up into the air as a jet of pyro launches up behind him. He then makes his way to the ring with a purposeful walk.

The house lights dim as smoke begins to boil up from the entranceway.

Eric Emerson: Introducing now... standing at 6'9" and weighting in at 280 pounds...

A pulsing beat hits the air as "The Great American Nightmare" by Rob Zombie begins to play as a group of ravishingly beautiful women in hot pants and cropped halter tops rise from the smoke, moving in a sensuous provocative manner to the music. The arena lights begin to strobe in synchronicity to the music as the opening guitar riff hits its crescendo, the huge monitors flashing in counterpoint.

~Dig deep down from Planet X, yeah~
~Thirteen ghosts in the devil's head~
~Step right up and feel the fire~
~Hardcore love of the never dead~

Eric Emerson: He hails from Los Angeles, California... he is Jonathon Wehali... he is...

Spotlights pan through the stadium, scanning through the air. Suddenly the entrance explodes with a spike of red pyros as the monitors begin showing highlights from Nightmare's previous matches. Icons and champions go down to his kicks and strikes. Superstars and legends tap out to his submission holds. One after another faces famous, infamous, and unknown are shown, each being driven into the canvas headfirst. The footage then burns away to a single word suspended
in darkness: NIGHTMARE. It then shatters, the monitor going black.

~Call me the American nightmare~
~Call me the American dream~
~Call me your soul corrupted~
~Call me everything you need~

Eric Emerson: NIGHTMARE!!!

As a shower of red pyros rains down upon the stage, Nightmare steps through the entrance. Red war paint marks his face.

~Yeah, motherfucker~
~Yeah, who do you love~
~Yeah, motherfucker~
~Who do you love, yeah~

Nightmare scans the crowd like a general surveying his troops. His gaze then settles upon the ring. Making his way forward he slaps hands with the fans. Trailing behind Nightmare are his manager Akira and his bodyguard Dhamballa.

~Black boots stomp and penetrate, yeah~
~Lust and death gone in your head~
~Rat pack mind degenerated~
~Thirteen ghosts sing the body red~

Arriving at ringside, Nightmare selects a lovely young woman out of the crowd, placing his signature Gargoyle sunglasses upon her head then posing with the fans before turning to once again view the ring.

~Call me the dark intruder~
~Call me the haunted sea~
~Call me your Monster Zero~
~Call me anything you need~

Once at ringside Nightmare springs onto the ring apron, grabs the top rope, and flips over the top.

~Call me the American Nightmare~
~Call me the American dream~
~Call me your soul corrupted~
~Call me everything you need~

Nightmare walks to the center of the ring and pumps his fist into the air. The four corner posts of the ring erupt into an explosion of red pyros as the
song fades out, the stage once again in darkness as the dancing girls return to the back.

~Yeah, motherfucker~
~Yeah, who do you love~
~Yeah, motherfucker~
~Who do you love, yeah~

Nightmare takes his place in his corner to await the beginning of the match as Akira and Dhamballa take their stations outside the ring.

DING! DING! DING!

McDaniel: "Ladies and Gentlemen, PWA-ites, this match promises to be a fight to the finish."

Rentfro: "Sure does John, both veterans of the sport and PX has something to prove here; Nightmare determined to not let him prove it either."

The two circle each other for a moment before heading towards each other; PX strikes first with a huge meaty right hand to the face of Nightmare, catching him off-guard. PX pulls Nightmare into a short armed clothesline sending one half of the PWA tag champs to the mat in a heap. PX stands over the fallen competitor and delivers a big boot scrape to the forehead of Nightmare, quickly followed by a massive boot stomp to the scraped forehead. The monster bends down and picks up Nightmare and delivers such a vicious body slam that the ring shakes with the impact. He turns to geer at the crowd, pointing at Nightmare who lays on the mat.

McDaniel: "PX in firm control here Brian."

Rentfro: "It has been all PX so far in this matchup."

Nightmare is up to his hands and knees and seeing that PX has his back turned, dives with a shoulder block to the back of PX's knees. Noticing the big man doesn't go down, Nightmare hits the ropes deliving a running clothesline that almost topples the bigger wrestler. PX is stumbling back and Nightmare hits the ropes again with yet another clothesline, followed up by right hands that have the desired effect as PX hits the mat. Nightmarejumps up and delivers a forearm drop to the throat of PX, trying to drive the wind out of PX's sail. Nightmare goes for the cover but only gets a one count as PX tosses Nightmare bodily across the ring.

Rentfro: "PX kicks out with authority there."

McDaniel: "It is a wonder Nightmare is still in the ring."

Nightmare lands and is up to his feet fast, charging at the rising PX aiming for a clothesline. He connects with the clothesline, but PX just laughs and shakes his head in denial. Nightmare goes to trade right and lefts with PX, but an eye gouge from PX stops the attempt. Nightmare bends over grabbing at his eyes as PX walks over and lifts him up in a over the head suplex.

McDaniel: "I think Nightmare's feet touched the lights."

Rentfro: "Don't be stupid. He was a good 3 inches away from the lights."

PX falls on Nightmare.

one... two- Nightmare kicks out before the count of three. PX hits the ropes delivering a leg drop across the throat of Nightmare; he goes for the cover again.

one... two...- Nightmare gets a shoulder up just in time. PX takes a look at the referee before hitting the ropes for a second time and landing on top of Nightmare with a body splash; he goes for the cover.

one... two...- Nightmare kicks out again and PX is pissed.

McDaniel: "PX taking his mind off the match and staring down the referee."

Rentfro: "Not a smart idea to not pay attention to Nightmare."

McDaniel: "You didn't pass English class did you?"

Rentfro: "No, why?"

McDaniel: "Just wondering."

PX lifts Nightmare back up to his feet and right into a gorilla press position; he taunts the crowd and drops Nightmare across his knee face down. PX again goes for the count.

one... two...- Nightmare rolls his shoulder up, stopping the ref's count before the third slap of the mat. PX is livid and chases the ref into the corner yelling obscenities at him. Meanwhile, Nightmare has regained his feet, having rolled slightly missing the full impact of the drop onto PX's outstretched knee. Seeing his opponent engaged with the ref, Nightmare runs with a dropkick to the back of PX, who's head hits the metal ringpost. The ref saw the move coming and ducked just in time to miss PX squishing him in the corner. PX turns glaring at Nightmare, blood running out from under the mask; they charge at each other. Nightmare drops to the mat with a drop toe hold and PX's face hits the canvas.

McDaniel: "PX is not a happy camper Brian."

Rentfro: "No John, I imagine not."

Nightmare is quickly to the shoulder of PX with a crippler crossface; PX powers up off the mat and Nightmare is dangling from his shoulder. Nightmare hangs on and kicks off the ropes with a bulldog to PX who again hits the mat face first. Nightmare is quickly back on the wearing down tactic with another crippler crossface to PX. PX first reaches one knee, then his second; Nightmare hanging on still with leverage on the shoulder. PX gains his feet and delivers a sidewalk slam to Nightmare who hits the mat, winded. Shaking his head and rolling his shoulder, PX picks up the winded Nightmare by his head and body slams him to the mat. Going for power moves, PX picks him up again this time holding him high over head with a gorilla press.

Rentfro: "PX going for total power moves in this match."

McDaniel: "So far, it has really been back and forth, neither man getting the advantage for long."

PX tosses Nightmare higher into the air and drops to a knee; Nightmare's gut drapes across the outstretched knee of PX. PX stands up and so does Nightmare, Nightmare is grinning and delivers a dropkick to the gut of PX.

Rentfro: "Twice PX has tried that move... twice it has failed."

McDaniel: "Nightmare is a veteran of wrestling and knows how to avoid some high impact moves."

PX doubles over right into a DDT by Nightmare; who is back up delivering an elbow drop to the back of PX's neck. Nightmare goes back to the crippler crossface, trying to wear PX down, but he is too near the ropes and the hold is broken. Nightmare backs off slightly as PX gets back to his feet.

Nightmare goes in for more punishment, but the huge hand of PX wraps around his throat. The muffled laughter of PX is heard through the mask as he lifts Nightmare into the air, but he is kicked in the gut and Nightmare lands on his feet, grabbing his throat.

McDaniel: "Requiem for the Fallen!"

Rentfro: "How did he hit it on PX?"

Nightmare goes for the pin.

one... two... three

DING! DING! DING!

Eric Emerson: "Winner of the match.... Nightmare!"

McDaniel: And Nightmare secures a solid victory over the former World Champion.

Rentfro: PX seemed off his game tonight, I bet you his mind is all on that hot Sandra!

McDaniel: Donít go there!  Letís move on, shall we?

Moke Doshky vs. Scottie "The Panther" Snow

Eric Emerson: The following match is for one fall. Introducing first, from Memphis, Tennessee...Scottie "The Panther" Snow!

The familiar intro of the Pink Panther theme starts to play as the arena lights dim slightly. Scottie ďThe PantherĒ Snow runs out to the top of the entrance ramp, does a bad kung fu pose, then high tails it to the ring.

Eric Emerson: And his opponent...from Bonn, Germany...Moke Doshky!

The arena lights turn red as Rammstein's "Amerika" plays over the PA. Fantastic Andy Stricklin comes out onto the entrance ramp in his usual garish attire. As the music picks up, he motions to the entry-way and "The World's Strongest Man" Moke Doshky comes out. Stricklin leads Doshky to the ring, holding the ropes for Doshky, which Moke ignores, stepping over the top rope and into the ring.

Jon McDaniel: The two men are facing each other in the middle of the ring. This isn't going to go well for Scottie Snow.

Brian Rentfro: Well, it can't be any worse than getting flung around in the locker room in front of half the roster.

Jon McDaneil: But this is getting flung around in front of the whole world. How is this any better?

Brian Rentfro: Cause he's getting paid for this one, Jon.

The bell rings and Doshky charges at Snow, looking to make short work of him. Snow ducks under his legs and rebounds off the ropes, running full charge into Doshky with a shoulder block. Snow bounces off the unphased Doshky and flies backwards. Snow comes off the ropes again and tries a clothesline without any more luck. Doshky makes a big show of yawning and checking his fingernails while Snow tries for a third time to take the big man down. Snow grabs ahold of one of Doshky tree trunk-like legs and tries with all his might to move it, but the big German doesn't budge.

Jon McDaniel: Uh-oh, here comes the cavalry!

Brian Rentfro: Looks like that money Scottie gave King Agony is about to bear interest!

King Agony runs down the ramp with a chair in hand and slides into the ring. Snow is still holding on to Doshky's leg, even as Doshky walks towards King Agony. King Agony raises the chair, gulps, then takes a hard swing, cracking Scottie Snow right in the back. The referee calls for the bell as King Agony quickly slides out of the ring and runs up the ramp.

Jon McDaniel: Why did King Agony just attack Scottie Snow?

Brian Rentfro: I think I've got an idea, Jon. But why don't I let Eric Emerson tell you?

Eric Emerson: Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of this match by disqualification...Scottie "The Panther" Snow!

Scott Nash Strader vs. Chamelion

The match began equally between the two combatants, each showing off their skills and personal tricks to counter the other in a grueling match that lasted nearly 20 full minutes. The end came when Project X sauntered out, looking half drunk, making comments about Chamelionís wife, and distracting Chamelion who was against the ropes shouting out at Project X.  The crowd went wild when Sandra ran down to the ring and spun PX and began brawling with him.  Due to PXís apparent drunk nature, and desire for Sandra, he didnít much fight back and took the lumps she dished out.  Enraged, Chamelion tried to exit the ring, but Strader pulled him back in and went for his finisher.  Trapped, but still desperate to help his wife, Chamelion slammed his arm up between Straderís legs, hitting a low blow and getting himself disqualified.  As Strader fell, Chamelion turned and booked it out of the ring and up the ramp; to assist his wife and deal more damage to Project X.

Winner: Scott Nash Strader by DQ

Jethro Hayes vs. Psycho Sandra

Jethro Hayes came to the ring first, and waited as Sandraís music played, but she did not come to the ring.  Everyone assumed that due to the actions that took place a few minutes prior, that she would obviously not be attending to her match duties.  After a ten count, the ref awarded the match to Jethro Hayes.

Winner: Jethro Hayes by count out.

After the match, the following appeared on the ADCtron, causing the arena to murmur in question.

Rentfro: Weird, weird evening weíve had tonight.

McDaniel: It gets weirder, too. Weíve been told that this next match is going to be so intense, they donít even want us commenting on it.  So, our work tonight is done everyone; sit back and enjoy the action as Jamie Flynn does battle with Riona Langly. Good night.

Riona Langly vs. Jamie Flynn

Eric Emerson: "The following contest is a non-title contest scheduled for one-fall, with a 60 minute time limit!  As agreed to by both competitors before the match, there shall be NO COUNTOUTS."

A soft pinging noise fills the speakers, moving across the arena as the lights flicker along with it. As the pinging comes to a stop, the lights in the arena shut off completely, and orchestral intro to "Planet Hell" by Nightwish begins. The crowd doesn't really know what to think as images of angels and death flash across the screen, superimposed with flashes of ring action. The lights begin to flicker along with the beat of the drums. And without a warning, the music stops and a massive explosion of red pyro goes off on both sides of the entrance ramp as the the guitars kick in most mightily, the lights coming back on with a fury. Blue lasers fly about the arena as Marco Hietala begins singing.

### Denying the lying ###
### A million children fighting ###
### For lives in strife ###
### For hope beyond the horizon ###

The lasers switch to a reddish hue as Tajra begins to sing....

### A dead world ###
### A dark path ###
### Not even crossroads to choose from ###
### All the blood red carpets before me ###
###
Behold this fair creation of God ###

As Tajra's pace and the music calm down considerably, a spotlight bursts out from in front of the curtain as a figure slowly makes its way out in front of it, head tilted down. The figure stops just in front of the light, head tilted down. Her long, black hair flows over her shoulders, bangs at the front hiding her face as she silohettes herself on the light.

Eric Emerson: "Introducing first, she stands 5 feet, 9 inches and weighed in this morning at 140 pounds..."

### My only wish to leave behind ###
### All the days of the earth ###
###
An everyday hell of my kingdom come ###

The woman slowly lifts her head up, hair hanging down over her face and obscuring most of it. Finally, as the second of the song begins, she throws her arms out to the side in a crucifix pose and flicks her head back, her hair flying back over her shoulders and revealing her face.  A huge pop occurs as a stream of silver sparks fall from the screen above her, the light behind her blacking out.  She ignores any sort of minor pain that the sparks would be causing her as three silver fireworks shoot off from the top of the tron to fly off and hit sets above the ring, causing minor explosions and the lasers to switch back to blue.

### The first rock thrown again ###
### Welcome to hell, little Saint ###
### Mother Gaia in slaughter ###
###
Welcome to paradise soldier ###

Riona drops her pose and paces each side of the entrance ramp, mentally preparing herself for the match as she loosens her muscles up a bit with a little bounce.

Eric Emerson: "She currently resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is a former 2 time PWA Grizzly Beer Champion..."

### My first cry neverending ###
### All life is to fear for life ###
### You fool, you wanderer ###
### You challenged the gods and lost ###

Riona returns to the middle of the entranceway and begins to make her way down the ramp as silver sparks suddenly fly up from either side of the entrance ramp to shower down over her, creating a tunnel of sorts due to the arching shape. Riona's typical neutral gaze not showing much of her thoughts towards the crowd.  The arching shape keeps her from specifically reaching out for high fives, but she doesn't bother to stop the few pats on the back she gets through the tunnel of sparks. Riona stops at the bottom of the ramp as the sparks finally dissipate, looking up into the ring for a few moments before walking over to and up the stairs. She quickly climbs up to the top turnbuckle and snaps off a crucifix pose as silver pyro shoots up from the other three turnbuckles with a loud pop as soon as the chorus begins.

Eric Emerson: "RIOOOONA... LANGLLLYYYY!!"

### Save yourself a penny for the ferryman ###
### Save yourself and let them suffer ###
### In hope ###
### In love ###
### This world ain't ready for The Ark ###

She holds the pose there while the chorus goes on, the lasers finally ending. Finally, Riona lowers her arms and hops down into to her corner, doing some last minute stretches and getting ready for the match as the house lights dim, the image of a red ouroboros flashing on the monitor...

Eric Emerson: "Introducing her opponent, from Seattle, Washington..."

Amidst the cheering, "The Pot" subtly begins to play over the arena.

### Who are you to wave your finger? ###
### You must have been outta your head ###
### Eye hole deep in muddy waters ###
### You practically raised the dead ###

### Rob the grave to snow the cradle ###
### Then burn the evidence down ###
### Soapbox house of cards and glass so ###
### Don't go tossin' your stones around ###

### You must have been... high ###
### You must have been... high ###

Eric Emerson: "Weighing in at two hundred and five pounds..."

As the sounds of Tool kick up and the bass begins to resonate, Jamie Flynn appears at the top of the ramp to the ovation of his fans. Wearing his trademark Aviators and a black hoodie, he raises his arm to them and begins his walk to the ring.

### Foot in mouth and head up ass ###
### So whatcha talkin' 'bout? ###
### Difficult to dance 'round this one ###
### 'til you pull it out. boy, ###

### You must have been... so high ###
### You must have been... so high ###

Eric Emerson: "He is the PWA Intercontinental champion... JAMIE FLYNN!!"

He slides under the bottom rope and rolls into the ring. He walks briskly to a corner and hops up, throwing his Intercontinental Title high into the air with one arm and soaking in a few more moments of the crowds' admiration.

### Now you're weeping shades of cozened indigo ###
### Musta got lemon juice up in your... eye! ###
### When you pissed all over my black kettle. ###

### You must have been... high! high! ###
### You must have been... high! high! ###

Removing his shades and sweater, he hands them off - along with the IC title - to an official outside the ring and moves to his corner, where he stretches out a few last-minute kinks with a smirk on his face as he sees Riona doing the same.  Jamie casually points to his right forearm, and Riona returns the favor by giving him the bird.  Flynn merely laughs off Riona's attitude and waits for the bell...

* * * DING DING DING * * *


Riona and Jamie stop their stretching and move to the center of the ring, and immediately they initiate a collar and elbow lockup.  Riona is giving up about 5 inches and 60 pounds to Jamie, which is better odds than she is used to, but that and Riona's still tender arm are enough for Flynn to push Riona back to the ropes, where John Martes, the official for this match, gets in between the two and seperates them.  Jamie uses this small moment of break to snap off one of Riona's crucifix poses, which infuriates Riona to the point of rushing past Martes and spearing Jamie to the mat, slamming him with a series of nasty right hands.  The Intercontinental Champion takes the blows, but quickly rolls the both of them over, with Jamie now on top, and he begins to show Riona how's it done by sending several right hands of his own at the former Grizzly Beer Champion.  Tiring of the fist fighting early, Jamie stands up and helps Riona to her feet with a yank, sending her right into the ropes with an Irish whip.  Jamie jumps up for a hurricanrana, but Riona grasps the top rope and stops her momentum, causing Jamie to fall flat on his back.  Riona swiftly pounces the fallen champion, locking on a side headlock as soon as Jamie rolls onto his stomach to get to his feet.  Riona's form is perfect, but her momentum and how early it is in the match is against her as Jamie gets to his feet, even with Riona latching onto that move.  Flynn powers out of the move, and Riona spins around, slamming a spinning elbow into Flynn's skull.  Jamie staggers backwards slightly from the blow, but retaliates with a roundhouse kick using the momentum of the elbow to give it fluidity and sending Riona slumping to a knee.  Flynn reaches down and latches on a side-headlock of his own on Riona as the fans cheer for the quick action and stiffness so far in the match.

Riona quickly gets back to her feet and shoves at Flynn, hoping to push him towards the ropes, but Flynn holds on and brings both of them back down to the mat.  Grunting a bit, Riona tries a different tactic, pushing up Jamie's arms as she gets back to her feet.  Jamie fights a bit to keep it alive, but Riona is able to spin out of the hold and immediately goes on the offensive by slamming a knee right into Flynn's midsection.  Jamie drops to a knee, and Riona slaps on a front-facelock.  Trying to escape quickly, Jamie starts to rock back and forth to weaken Riona's grip on him, but Riona smacks him in the back with a couple of clubbing forearms to keep him silent.  Taking her now free arm, she grabs Jamie's left arm and twists it behind his back in a hammerlock before dropping right down to the mat in a hammerlock DDT.  Releasing the front-facelock, but keeping the hammerlock applied, Riona spins around to Jamie's back and wrenches the arm as far back as she can possibly wrench it, almost touching the back of Jamie's head.  Riona's eyes are steeled with determination as she tries to even up the score between them, but her hold on Jamie doesn't last as the champion gets some strength back in his arm and flings Langly off of his back before getting to his knees.  Pressing her advantage, Riona rushes forward to deliver one of her usual stiff knees to the face, but Jamie catches her offguard and launches forward, taking out the technician with a favorite move of hers, the chop block.  Riona faceplants into the mat and Flynn shakes out his arm before both wrestlers make it back to their feet.  Circling the center of the ring, both wrestlers don't remain idle for very long as they rush each other, with a jumping knee meeting a charging elbow!  Both wrestlers stumble backwards from this exchange, but Jamie takes less of the move thanks to his reach advantage and charges forward, ramming the lighter woman in the stomach with a shoulder and slamming her back into the corner hard.

Riona groans from the impact, but Jamie doesn't give her much time to complain as he starts to unload on her face with a series of stiff, painful elbows.  Through the pain, Riona regains her wits and drops down to her bottom, quickly rolling out of the corner and to her feet in a bit of a daze.  Flynn follows her out of the corner and continues to play Riona's game against her as he screams a stiff knife-edge chop right across her chest that can be heard in the upper-reaches of the arena.  Feeling the sting both metaphorically and physically, Riona lashes right back with a series of rage-filled knife-edge chops that sends the Intercontinental Champion reeling backwards.  Taking ahold of Flynn's hand, Riona makes an attempt at an Irish whip, but Jamie reverses it and sends Riona into the ropes instead.  Jamie attempts an arm drag, but Riona rolls through the move unharmed, springboarding off the middle rope and hitting a perfect moonsault, catching Jamie's head on the way down in a reverse front facelock.  Sensing the DDT to come, Jamie quickly spins out of the move, going behind Riona and latching on a waistlock.  Jamie makes an attempt at a German Suplex, but Riona locks her legs with his and blocks the move before grabbing Jamie by the head and pulling him down for an attempted stunner.  Flynn knows this is coming however, and lifts Riona up to throw her off of him, but Riona flips out behind Flynn and shoves him forward into the ropes.  Jamie instinctively grabs the front rope, giving him enough leverage that when Riona tries to use the momentum from the ropes to pull him into a roll-up, Jamie is instead able to push Riona away with an elbow to the breasts.  Riona recoils in pain, as Jamie turns around and sends another nasty roundhouse kick right at Riona's right shoulder.

Riona falls to one knee, but manages to recover quickly enough to catch Flynn's attempt at a stiff kick to the face that would have knocked her loopy.  Riona quickly Dragon screws Jamie to the mat and rolls over, grabbing his left arm once more into a Fujiwara armbar.  Yanking that arm back as far as possible, Langly screams for Jamie to give up, but the Intercontinental Champion doesn't respond as he reaches out to try and grab the bottom rope.  He's a little bit short, so he starts to crawl his way over, even with Riona on part of his back.  Seeing that her momentary advantage was about to slip away, Riona quickly stands up and gives Jamie a stiff kick to the kidneys as he slowly gets to his knees.  Jamie rolls over to the ropes, and gets to a vertical base as Martes holds Riona back while Jamie's in the ropes.  Seeing Riona slightly distracted by giving Martes a bit of an earful, Jamie explodes out of the ropes to tackle Riona to the mat, but she surprises him by leaping high enough to go right over his head as he passes.  Riona makes an attempt at the Reality Check as he turns around, but Jamie catches her foot and shoves it back down to the ground before attempting another roundhouse at Riona's head, which she ducks.  Riona fires back with a low sweep, but Jamie jumps right over that and then the two both go for a stiff kick to the side of the ribs, which collides in the middle!  Both stagger a bit from going for the same move, but they recover in enough time to both go for identical elbows.  Kick after kick, elbow after elbow, the two of them consistantly throw the same moves at each other as if they've been in the ring with each other many, many, many times before, which is the case.  Finally, the stalemate concludes when Riona throws a kick as Jamie's side, only for the Intercontinental Champion to catch her foot and slam his elbow straight down onto her knee.

Riona stumbles a bit before falling to the mat as Jamie lets go of her.  Getting back to her feet, and hobbling a bit from the immediate pain, Riona immediately goes for another lockup, which Jamie complies to.  The effects of her injured leg are seen as Riona seems to buckle under Jamie's pressure, but Riona quickly turns the tide in her favor with a sharp kick, using her good leg, right to Jamie's knee.  The pain causes Jamie to break his concentration, and this is all Riona needs as she grabs Jamie into another headlock.  Flynn attempts to power his way out of the hold, and Riona simply spins around him, turning it into a wristlock along the way.  Jamie tries to elbow out of it, but Riona's just a little bit quicker as she releases the hold, allowing Jamie's momentum to spin him around before she puts him right into the mat with a bridging Northern Lights suplex!  Martes dives down to make the first count of the match, but the champion kicks out at 2.  Both wrestlers quickly make it back to their feet, and Riona continues to press her advantage as she screams another chop across Jamie's chest.  Jamie stumbles a bit, and sensing blood in the water, Riona continues to press Jamie into a corner with chop after stinging chop.  Just as he almost gets backed into the one of the corners, Jamie suddenly retaliates, grabbing Riona's chopping arm and slamming her into the corner chest first.  Riona staggers backwards from the blow, and Flynn shows her no respite as he grabs her around the waist and flings her backwards in a German Suplex that she nearly lands on her head for!  Riona falls onto the mat facefirst and Jamie takes a small moment to breath as the match passes 10 minutes.

Jamie starts to circle the former GB Champion as she slowly starts to get back to her knees.  Sensing a chance to really do some damage, Jamie rushes in and snaps off a kick to Riona's stomach that nearly sends her airborne. Riona gasps as she makes an attempt to get her breath back, but Jamie refuses to let that happen as he places his knees on Riona's back and crosses her legs.  The crowd starts to jeer a bit as they recognize the move as Riona's own Death Bed submission hold, but can do nothing but watch as Flynn leans backwards and lifts Riona right into the hold.  Riona screams various obscenities at Jamie as he wrenches the hold, twisting her weakened leg as well as working over her back.  However, Riona is a ring general through and through and she reaches out, just barely grabbing the near middle rope to get Jamie to break the hold. 1...2...3...4...Martest tells Flynn to break the hold, and he does with a bit of reclutance prior to laying a couple of stomps into the small of Riona's back. Riona seems to already be feeling the effects of the work as she holds her back, which Jamie just continues working on at his own pace as he kneels down and pulls Riona into a Reverse Bear Hug. The former Celestial Trigger doesn't seem to be effected by the hold that much, as she taunts Jamie, telling him "So, I see you DO want me after all!". Jamie doesn't respond, he just squeezes even tighter, only for Riona to roll backwards onto Flynn which makes his shoulders hit the mat, 1...2...Flynn releases the hold and kicks out. Both individuals are up to their feet in a hurry after this, and Flynn beats Riona to the punch this time by laying into her with a nasty elbow to the face before grabbing Riona in another headlock.  Riona has the presence of mind to push the pair into the ropes, but Flynn overpowers her and keeps her in the middle of the ring.  Riona promptly tries another strategy and hiptosses Jamie, to his surprise, and then quickly grabs her own headlock on the mat, which barely gets a 1 count.

Both competitors make it back to their feet, and quickly lock up in another collar and elbow tie-up, shoving each other around the ring as they continue to throw out taunts and swears to each other.  Finally, Jamie's height, weight, and strength advantage starts to wear down on Riona and her weakened back, as she buckles to a knee.  Continuing to apply the pressure to his opponent, Jamie is completely thrown for a loop as Riona suddenly breaks the hold and rises as Jamie stumbles forward, slamming a knee sharply into his gut.  Jamie drops to all fours, and Riona springs to action, dropping to the mat as well and slamming a knee right into the top of Jamie's head!  She tries to go for another, but the IC Champion slides out of the hold and to his feet before giving Riona a knee to the face of his own.  Riona staggers ever so slightly from the attack, but manages to get to her feet, but Jamie is ready for her as he gives her a quick knee to the gut before pulling her into a standing head-scissors.  Jamie goes to butterfly her arms, but Riona drops to a knee to break the hold, before rising and lifting Jamie onto her shoulders.  Feeling Jamie already starting to slip out of her grasp, she barely is able to toss Jamie over her head as she drops to her knees, which drive sharply into Jamie's gut as he falls.  Flynn gets the wind knocked right out of him and rolls onto his stomach, and Riona quickly crawls over, not going for the cover as most would expect, but instead choosing to get a mount over Jamie's back before she rains down a series of stiff punches right against Jamie's head.  While these punches hurt tremendously for Flynn, simple physics are in Jamie's favor as he's able to roll over, dropping Riona to the mat before spinning around and slamming a couple of punches of his own into Riona's skull.  Finally, John Martes steps in, pulling the two apart before the closed fists become more of a problem between these two.

Riona manages to shakily make it back to a vertical base, but she doesn't stay there for too long as Jamie rushes past Martes and slams his shoulder into Riona's stomach before sending her into the corner.  Riona gasps a bit from the impact, and Jamie wastes no motion as he leans back down and rams Riona again.  Slumping forward in the corner, Riona looks to be a bit out of it, but Jamie brings her back into the world by pushing her into the corner and giving her a taste of her own medicine as he screams off a wicked knife-edge chop right into her chest.  While the move does reverberate throughout the arena, it doesn't have the effect Jamie wanted, as Riona suddenly screams and reaches out, throwing Jamie harshly into the corner before she turns his chest into raw meet with one of her usual wicked chops.  Riona's eyes look like she's the devil as she refuses to let the pain in, throwing 2 more chops into the same part of Jamie's chest before she rams another knee right into his sternum.  Jamie leans over from the sheer momentum of the attack, and Riona capitalizes by grabbing yanking his head into a front facelock and pulling him out of the corner.  She swings her arm out, and twists, making an attempt at the Bomb Dropper, but Flynn has the move well-scouted as he pushes Riona as she turns, breaking the hold before he slides out of the ring to catch his breath.  Riona has no intentions of letting Jamie go as she rushes towards Jamie and slams her Reeboks right into the back of his head with a well-placed and nasty baseball slide that sends Jamie stumbling into the barricade.  Waiting for her opponent to make it to his feet, Riona suddenly runs the ring again and jumps through the ropes, hitting an ELBOW SUICIDA THAT SENDS BOTH INTO THE CROWD!

Security is quick to take control of the situation as they evac the fans from the area around the two wrestlers, whose heads collided with Riona's assault.  Riona is the first to recover as she grabs Jamie by his hair and pulls him back towards the ring.  She makes it about halfway before Jamie breaks the hold and knocks Riona back with a deperation roundhouse kick to her shoulder once again.  Langly stumbles back a bit from the kick, giving Jamie a chance to catch his bearings and slide into the ring.  However, he doesn't stay in there very long as Riona grabs ahold of his foot and yanks him back outside, wanting to deliver some more punishment.  As soon as Jamie's feet touch the floor mats, Riona starts to hammer him back towards the announce tables with a set of stiff elbows to the face.  With his back to the Spanish tables, Flynn finally gets a bit of offense in on Riona's barrage as he blocks one of her elbow strikes and slams her head right into the announce table.  Jamie pulls her head back to do it again, but Riona elbows her way out of his grasp and spins around, giving Jamie another stiff elbow to the gut before she yanks him by the hair and throws him back-first right into the announce table.  Flynn slumps into a seated position, and Riona wastes no time making him pay as she grabs ahold of the edge of the table and smashes a knee right into the side of Jamie's skull.  She hits another of these stiff knees, and then, seeing her opponent looking a little dazed, she reaches over and grabs a water pitcher meant for the Spanish Announce team, quickly tossing it's contents right into Jamie's face, soaking and waking him up.  Finally,  Riona grabs Jamie's hair once again and drags him towards the ring, throwing him in before sliding back in herself.

Jamie makes an attempt to get back into his rhythm as he gets to a vertical base, with Riona stalking him from behind.  Sensing danger, he quickly spins around and lashes out with a roundhouse kick that would have impacted Riona in the side of the head had she been there, but instead Riona ducks the kick and catches his leg on her shoulder.  Yanking Jamie forward, Riona quickly locks her hands behind his back and tosses him backwards in a Capture Suplex.  Jamie's legs get under the ropes, so Riona has to pull him out from underneath before hooking his legs for a cover, 1...2...and Jamie kicks out.  Not being surprised by this, despite the match almost going for 20 minutes now, Riona gets herself back to a vertical base and brings Flynn up into a standing head scissors. Jamie stuggles a bit in Riona's hold, so she silences him with a few stiff forearms right to the small of the back.  Without as much stuggling from the IC Champ, Riona hooks Jamie's arms in a butterfly lock. Unfortunately for Riona, Flynn manages to snap out of his daze and begins to fight free of Riona's grasp. Jamie stands up after wriggling his arms free, but the former Grizzly Beer Champion isn't going to let him get away that easily as she sends another knee right into Jamie's abdomen. Grabbing onto the near arm of Flynn, Riona whips her opponent across the ring and waits for him to come back to hit a Snap Powersl-NO! Jamie jumps up at the last second as he is coming back towards Riona and nails his opponent with a jumping knee right to the side of Riona's skull!!  Riona stumbles backwards right into the ropes, and Jamie gets back to his feet, rushing forward and leaping up, hitting another jumping knee that puts Riona down onto the mat.  Jamie pulls Riona away from the ropes and makes a cover himself, shoving his forearm into Riona's face as he does, but he only gets a two count for his troubles as Riona kicks out with some authority as we get to the 20 minute mark.

Both wrestlers make it back to their feet and look at each other, steel expression meeting steel expression, before they meet in the middle of the ring once more.  Riona holds up her hands, wanting to go into a knucklelock, and Jamie agrees with a shrug, grasping them.  The fight only lasts for a moment before Riona breaks the hold and grabs Jamie's arm, twsiting it over into an armbar.  Knowing that she needs to take away Flynn's leverage, Riona crouches down and pulls Flynn closer to the mat.  Jamie holds back some painful looking feelings before he finally just throws himself over onto Riona and mounts her, throwing more stiff punches as the two go back into the MMA style they were working earlier.  Riona is able to cover up and block better, having more time to react this time, even getting a few shots onto Flynn's face whenever she has the opprotunity to.  Flynn makes a small lapse in his focus as he holds back on a punch, and that's all Riona needs as she ducks down and grapples Flynn, turning the pair over.  With Flynn now on the bottom, Riona has every opprotunity to just hammer him with some stiff elbows, but Jamie is able to keep up and block most of them with his forearms.  As a bit of a sign of desperation on Riona's part, she suddenly leans forward and headbutts Jamie not once, but twice.  Flynn is rocked a bit by the surprise move, but recovers well as he locks Riona in a body scissors and returns the favor, slamming his face into hers so hard that Riona's weakened nose busts open.  The blood drips down onto Flynn and his first rection is to escape, which he does as he puts manuevers his knees under Riona and pushes the girl into the ropes.  Flynn gets back to his feet, but he doesn't stay on them very long as Riona rebounds off the ropes and floors him with a super stiff lariat before dropping down and locking him once more into another headlock.

Riona doesn't hold the headlock for too long, as she stands up and drops a knee onto Flynn's neck for good measure before lifting the IC Champ up and pulling him into a front facelock.  Jamie quickly gets his bearings about him and pushes out of the hold, before grabbing Riona's arm and whipping her so hard into the corner that Jamie even stumbles a bit from the force of the throw.  Riona arches her back immediately as the pain spikes through her back, but Flynn adds to her pain as he pushes her right back into the corner and lets loose on her with a series of elbows to the skull that rock the former champion.  Jamie takes a moment, seeing that Riona is dazed from the barrage, and lifts her up and sits her on the top rope.  Stepping back for some running room, Jamie rushes towards the ropes and springboards off of them towards Riona, whacking her on the side of the head with a nasty kick that sends her off the top rope and down to the outside of the ring.  Luckily for her, Riona was able to position herself for probably the best landing possible.  As Riona lies on the ground motionless, Jamie decides to take this match to the air as he climbs to the top turnbuckle that he just kicked Riona off of and flies off with a picture perfect Shooting Star Press, connecting in a textbook fashion.  The move takes alot out of Jamie though, as he rolls off of Riona and gets to his knees, holding his stomach in pain.  Finally, he's able to get to a vertical base and reach down, grabbing Riona by her long black hair and lifting her up, before placing her once again in a seated position on the ring apron this time.  Jamie gingerly gets onto the ring apron himself, measuring up Riona for another knee to the  side of the head.  He runs forward, looking to deliver a defeating blow... and Riona rolls off the apron, causing Jamie to stumble a bit and fall off of the apron, slamming face first into the ring steps.  A trickle of blood starts to flow from his forehead as he lies dazed on the floor mats.

Riona, certainly not feeling too hot herself, drags herself back to her feet and staggers over to her opponent, where she weakly grabs him and throws him right into the side of the steel steps, dislodging the top set from the bottom.  Jamie still looks dazed as he sits there, with his back to the stairs, and Riona gets an idea.  Walking over to the timekeeper's table, she grabs a chair, but doesn't fold it, instead setting it up right next to the ring barrier.  She walks back over to Jamie, looking to drag him towards the chair, but instead gets whacked with a charging elbow as Jamie springs out of his seated position.  Riona staggers backwards from the elbow, her momentum halted, and Jamie presses the attack, grabbing Riona's arm and slinging her into the opposite side ring barrier back first.  Jamie gets a wicked idea and grabs Riona, locking his leg with hers before falling backwards, slamming her back right into the rail with a Russian Legsweep.  The rail pushes back into the crowd as the fans pull back thanks to security, and Jamie simply stands Riona right back onto her feet and positions himself once again before ramming Riona back once again into the barrier.  The barrier pushes back once more, and Jamie slowly pulls Langly up again, looking to go for the move a third time just like he did to Silverback 2 years ago.  However, the results of this are different now as Riona is able to slide out of Jamie's grip on the windup, reversing the hold and sending Jamie face-first into the floor-mat with a Reverse Russian Legsweep!  Riona rises to her feet first as she goes back to her original plan and drags Jamie by his hair over to the other side of the ring where the chair was placed.  Getting to the chair, Riona lifts Jamie to his feet and shoves him down before giving him a couple elbows to the face for him to stay there.  The crowd already begins to chant 'OLE, OLE OLE OLE...' as Riona gets a little running room and then rushes into Jamie, smacking him right upside the head with a massive boot to the face that almost sends him into the crowd!

Riona gets back to her feet and pulls Jamie up to his before finally sliding him back into the ring.  Jamie starts to crawl towards the ropes, trying to get back to a standing base as Riona slides in after him and grabs his foot.  Getting back to her feet, still holding his, she grins and twirls her hand a bit, obviously signalling for a figure four leglock.  Jamie knows this too, as he manages to get the strength to push Riona away and into the corner as she turns.  Slowly rising to his feet, and feeling the first wave of adrenaline, he meets Riona as she dazes out of the corner and wakes her up with a backhand slap!  Riona stumbles, obviously awake now, and plants her feet before returning the favor with a nasty slap of her own!  Jamie also reels back from the force behind Riona's blow, and immediately tries to curtail that as he grabs the back of her head and comes in with a series of vicious forearm shots into the side of her face before stepping back and swinging his leg up to kick Riona in the chest, doing this a few times before she falls back into a sitting position against the ropes from the impact.  Jamie pulls Riona back up to her feet, pushing her into the corner before whipping her across the ring into the opposite one.  Shaking out the effects of all the stiff striking in the match so far, Jamie runs in, going for a Yakuza Kick to Riona's skull, but Riona ducks right out of the way and Flynn's leg gets caught over the top rope, getting stuck there.  Never one to let an opprotunity like this pass by, Riona starts to hammer Jamie with a series of stiff elbows and chops in the back and the back of his neck, hoping to do some massive damage while she has the chance.  Flynn makes some attempts to pull his leg out, but Riona makes it all the more difficult as she sends a precise and sharp kick right into the back of his knee, buckling it and causing tremendous pain to his thigh as it stretches out on the leg over the rope.  Flynn manages to make back to his foot and slightly turn around, only to come face to face with Riona as she smacks him hard in the face with another lariat!  Flynn stumbles backwards out of the corner, finally getting his leg out over the ropes as he attempts to keep his footing.  However, he doesn't keep that footing for very long as Riona quickly runs in and connects with another spinning elbow strike that staggers Flynn before he drops to the mat.

Riona drops down to a knee as Jamie tries to recover from Riona's blistering attack, and adds to the punishment as she slams a Mongolian Chop right into the back of Jamie's neck.  The crowd cringes at the sharp smacking sound heard from the impact, but Jamie slowly starts to rise and stares Riona down. Unflustered by her opponent's tenacity, Riona rears back and hits another Mongolian Chop, but Jamie manages to take the blow and stand back up, getting right in Riona's face.  The crowd cheers from the toughness that these two wrestlers are showing, but neither of them seem to hear them as they stare each other down again.  Finally, Riona makes the first move as she hits another big Mongolian Chop, this one making Jamie bend down a bit and place his hands on his knees, and Riona, sensing a crack in Jamie's resolve, quickly continues, grabbing Flynn's back and coming in with a vicious knee strike right into his chest. Flynn visibly gasps at that one, trying to stand up and ignore it, but goes back down to the slightly bent over position he was in before, hands on his knees. Riona turns and runs into the ropes, but Flynn turns as well and catches her with a sudden Mule Kick into her knee, then turns and nails Riona with another one of those vicious slaps, causing her to drop to a knee.  Trying to regain the advantage and momentum in this grueling match, Flynn turns and runs to the ropes, coming back with a hard Clothesline of his own that sends Riona down onto her back hard.  Flynn stares down Riona before running the ropes and slamming into his rival's chest with a leaping knee-drop.  Jamie rolls to his feet and suddenly lurches over, feeling the effects of a constant 30 minutes of constant action.

Flynn pushes Riona up into a seated position before shoving his knee into her and locking his arm around her neck, pulling her back in a Dragon Sleeper. More pressure gets put onto Riona's back with this variation, wrenching her neck back with the hold along with curving her spine out. Riona, however, still has the leverage to try and get out of it, and eagerly does so, wanting to try and break the hold. Finally, she manages to twist himself to the side off of Flynn's knee, but Jamie rolls over with her, ending up laying across Riona's back, quickly locking his legs around one arm and pulling up on the other, locking in a Rings of Saturn!  Riona looks painfully suprised at the hold, not thinking Jamie would pull something like that out. Meanwhile, Jamie pulls back further and further on her arm, wrenching it excruciatingly painfully. Finally, though, Riona manages to slide towards the ropes enough to barely put a foot on it. Jamie breaks the hold at the count of four from Martes, and reaches down, picking Riona back up by her hair, only to be surprised as Riona screams off a stiff open-hand chop right to his chest. Flynn is a little surprised by this one, but not enough that he can't respond with an elbow, only to have Riona throw out another chop, these ones seeming to affect him a little more. The elbows win out, though, as a few more of them send Riona into the ropes, wrapping her arm around the top one so that she doesn't slump down to the mat. Riona looks more than a little dazed from all the elbows, and this allows Flynn to pull her back towards the middle of the ring in a front facelock. Flynn sets her up for a suplex, but Riona manages to block it, grabbing Flynn's tights and suddenly lifting him up instead! Unfortunately for Riona, Jamie manages to float over and land behind her, grabbing her in a Reverse Waistlock. Langly quickly elbows out of it, however, running to the ropes, only to come back right into a ROARING ELBOW!

Riona drops to the mat and Jamie quickly jumps down for a cover... 1...2...kickout!  Signs of fustration are starting to form on Jamie's face as he slaps the mat a bit after Riona's kickout.  As Flynn thinks his possibilities through and gets back up to a vertical base Riona is still trying to figure out what millenium she's in at the moment. Riona's contemplations are put to a sudden halt as Jamie jerks Riona back to her feet with a handful of her black hair.  Riona clears her head a bit from the sharp pain, and instinctively throws a nasty elbow right to Flynn's face once more.  The IC Champion takes this shot and just shrugs it off since it had little force behind it before he grabs Riona by the arm and goes to whip her into the far set of ropes. Langly doesn't budge however as she leans back to hold his ground which annoys Flynn to a certain degree and he just lets go of her. Stumbling back a bit from the sudden release, Riona seems a tiny bit surprised at how flustered Flynn is getting, but it's only a momentary feeling as she is smacked across the chest with a trio of chops from Jamie.  Not about to let Jamie beat her at her own game, and starting to regain some real semblance of though, Riona screams at the pain and unleashes a hellacious chop on Jamie's red chest that manages to actually floor him.  Riona grins as Jamie quickly gets back to his feet, and surprises him as she leaves her feet and hits him with a picture perfect standing dropkick.  Jamie tumbles back to the mat from this, and rolls away and to his feet, but Riona follows him with a stiff elbow.  Jamie takes the blow, but throws out a stiff one of his own before grabbing Riona's arm and leading them both back into the middle of the ring.  Riona plants her feet to try and stop Flynn from whipping her into the ropes again, but her thoughts are wrong as Flynn goes to take Riona's head off with a BURNING LARIAT!  However, Riona suddenly thinks fast and nails Flynn with another stiff elbow to the forearm to block!

Both wrestlers fall to the mat, as Jamie holds his right arm in very obvious pain from the surprise counter.  Riona is the first to make it back to her feet and she sees the major opening that her actions have given her and makes her way over to Jamie as he gets onto his hands and knees to try and work through the pain.  Riona's not going to let him get the chance to heal though, as she soccer kicks Jamie's forearm.  A hard stomp follows as Jamie tries to protect his arm, but Riona is having none of that as she yanks Flynn back up to his feet by the injured right arm.  Jamie makes an attempt to elbow out of it with his left arm, but Riona simply yanks the arm HARD to drop his resistance before pulling it behind his back in a Hammerlock.  Simple, but effective is the nature of the hold as Riona pulls out her tactical strengths and applies the hold expertly to inflict more and more damage on Flynn's arm.  Riona pushes them both towards the center of the ring once more, and Jamie uses the moment to try and elbow out again.  However, Riona avoids the elbow by simply releasing the hold for a brief moment before grabbing his right arm again and yanking him down onto the mat and into a Cross Armbreaker!  Jamie's cries of agony are music to Riona's ears as she continues to wrench and apply pressure, ripping at the muscles in Jamie's right arm try and make him submit.  However for her, Jamie Flynn is no quitter, even in the face of a possible torn muscle, and he begind to inch his way over to the ropes.  Riona tries as she might to force him to quit, amping up the pressure, but it's not enough for her as Flynn is able to reach out and JUST BARELY grab the bottom rope with his uninjured left hand.

Riona stands up, stomping across the side of Flynn's head in frustration before lifting him up to his feet, only to get her arms knocked away and receive another elbow to the jaw! Riona staggers back as Jamie shakes his right arm trying to get a little feeling back into it.  Of course, Riona doesn't take this strike lying down as she rushes back and slams another knee into Jamie's gut.  She quickly spins around Jamie as he doubles over, grabbing Jamie around the waist and DROPPING HIM ONTO HIS HEAD WITH A SICK GERMAN SUPLEX!  Riona spins around and makes the cover on the folded up Flynn, but still is only able to get a two count out of him, even after the head-drop.  Now it's Riona's turn to get fustrated as she stands up and stomps down on  Jamie's arm some more before lifting him up and throwing a few more chops and elbows. Riona knocks Jamie back into the corner with the assault, then goes to whip him into the opposite one, but Jamie somehow reverses it and sends Langly into the corner instead, running forward and nailing a hard Yakuza Kick right into Riona's face. Riona slumps down into a sitting position in the corner, dazed from the sudden attack as Jamie places the sole of his boot up against the side of Riona's face and pushes it past him repeatedly, scraping the bottom of his boot across her cheek. Jamie then runs across the ring, coming back to hit a RUNNING BOOT SCRAPE! Riona falls out of the corner onto her stomach, but Jamie doesn't leave her there for long as he turns her over and picks her right back up.  He pulls her right back to the middle of the ring and quickly jams her into a Standing Head Scissors before lifting her up for a Powerbomb.  However, Jamie's arm is just too weak to hold Riona up there and he drops her RIGHT ON HER HEAD!  Riona crumbles from the head-drop as the fans cheer, and Jamie crawls over, making a weak cover... 1... 2... KICKOUT!

Jamie sits there with a dazed look on his face, holding his arm, in disbelief that Riona could kick out of that.  He gets his wits about himself once again and grabs Riona's legs, turning her over and pulling her RIGHT INTO THE MERCY KILLING!  Riona wakes up and begins to scream as her back is once again worked over by the high angle Boston Crab, but she slowly starts to fight her way over to the ropes.  Just as it looks like Riona is going to make it, through all the pain, Jamie stands up, wrenching further back on the hold and turning Riona into a nasty contortion looking like the letter C.  Riona's progress is halted from the switch as she cries out in agony from the hold, but Jamie knows that even through this sort of pain, Riona Langly will never tap out.  Finally, though, the combo of Jamie's weakened arm and inspiration strikes Riona as she painfully twists around and pulls Flynn down from behind into a TAZMISSION!!! Jamie frantically flails towards the ropes, and manages to get to them, forcing Riona to break the choke hold submission.  Both wrestlers slowly roll back to their feet, Riona holding her back and Jamie his arm, and look at each other and the cheering crowd.  They've been killing each other for 40 minutes now, and most of the crowd is on their feet at this point, since the tempo has clearly picked up in the last couple mintues.  With an unheard signal, both wrestlers suddenly go for the attack, with one of Riona's chops meeting one of Flynn's elbows halfway.  Riona steps back holding her hand a bit, and Flynn grabs her by the arm, flinging her into the ropes.  Riona has the presence to duck right under Jamie's attempt at a roundhouse kick, but as she charges forward to unleash another round of chops, she runs right into a SLEEPER HOLD!  Flynn quickly pushes Riona down to a seated position, locking in the hold as the excitement is brought back down with this hold.

Unlike the many chin and headlocks that have been used between both Riona and Jamie so far, this move is very effective as Riona's struggling begins to weaken as she loses oxygen and blood flow. Flynn keeps the move on as tight as he can, occasionally jerking Langly's head to the side to disorient her. Pretty soon, the crowd begins to rally, starting up a slow clap for Rio as she reaches a hand out, clenching and unclenching her fist as she tries to get up the energy to break the hold. Finally, the former GB Champion starts to make her way up to her feet, pushing herself slowly up while Jamie forces her to lift up both their weights. Eventually, Riona makes it to her feet, reaching up to hold Jamie's head above her own as she drops down for a Jawbreaker! This breaks the hold, but Flynn quickly recovers and hits a Dropkick into Riona's back to stun her, before walking around to the front and CHOPPING HER FACE! Riona cries out and falls back, clutching her face after the unexpected strike, Flynn quickly following with a pin. 1...2...Riona kicks out, clearing her head enough to do that.  Jamie lifts Riona back to a vertical base, before slinging her into the ropes.  Riona blocks the Irish whip by grabbing onto the top rope and halting her momentum, but Jamie surprises her as he speeds forward and sends her right over the top rope with a huge JUMPING KNEE!  Riona falls to the floor again, getting back to her feet somewhat quickly for the amount of punishment she's taken in the match, but Jamie puts her right back down again as he springboards off the top rope with an Asai Moonsault!  Jamie however, comes up a bit lame as he rammed his right arm into the floor with a bad landing.

Fighting through the pain, Flynn makes it back to his feet first and pulls Riona up to hers before shoving her in a bent over position, bringing his leg up and kicking Riona right in the face!  Once, twice, three times he kicks her before turning Riona into a front facelock.  Riona fights the hold, Jamie's arm still weak after all, but a couple of stiff knees to the midsection silence that insurrection before he lifts Riona up for a Vertical Suplex and connects!  Not content as Riona arches her back once more in agonizing pain, Flynn floats over and grabs Riona's right arm, dropping back himself into a  Cross Armbreaker!  Riona immediately tries to roll out of the move, but Flynn just rolls over with her, scissoring the arm with his legs and grabbing Riona's head, pulling back to lock in a Crippler Crossface!  Flynn cranks up on Riona's neck with the maneuver, but after a few moments and knowing that he can't win the match on the outside, Flynn just turns the hold over into a Front Facelock and lifts Riona up to her feet before firing off a hard elbow. Jamie hits another elbow, then goes to whip Riona into the ringpost, but Riona reverses it and sends Jamie face-first into the steel instead!  Jamie got lucky that it was the left shoulder that impacted the steel instead of the right, but Riona quickly chases Flynn down, going for another lariat!  Flynn ducks out of the way, turning as Riona does and jumping up to slam the side of her head with a huge ENZUIGIRI!  Riona falls to her knee as Jamie goes to finish the job and rushes forward, making mincemeat out of her skull with a NASTY SHINING WIZARD!  Riona plops down to the floor, out cold from the sick knee strike, and Jamie reaches down and drags her to a standing position before sliding her back into the ring.  Jamie climbs onto the apron and measures Riona up before slingshotting over the top for a senton splash that hits nothing but mat as Riona manages to just barely move out of the way!  Riona is still slow to get to her feet, feeling the effects of all these blows to the head just as Jamie is, but she shakes it off and stalks Jamie as he's slow to get up, holding out her arm and making the signal for the DETONATOR!

Riona pounds the mat and quickly moves behind Jamie as he gets back to his feet a bit wearily, before rushing in with an attempt to lock in the full nelson!  Unfortunately for Riona, Jamie's done his homework just as much as she has, as he immediately starts to flair his arms, keeping Riona from being able to lock the hold in before giving her a stiff elbow to the gut.  Riona would have bent over from the sudden release of her breath, but Jamie grabs her head and slings her over his shoulder in a quick snapmare takedown before blistering her back with a nasty kick.  This seems to trigger a memory in Jamie, judging by the reflective look in his face, but the look is gone in a flash as he screams to Riona "HOW DO YOU LIKE IT NOW" before pounding Riona wiht another kick at the same location.  Riona tries to get back to her feet, but Jamie grabs ahold of her head and shoves her back down to a seated position before kicking her again in the injured back.  Obviously remembering what she and Silverback did to him in the Ironman Match 2 years ago, Flynn shouts at his rival "DOESN'T FEEL VERY GOOD, DOES IT?" before he kicks her again... and again... and again!  The crowd begins to wince as Jamie loses his cool before their very eyes, sending sharp kick after sharp kick into Riona's back before he finally ends it with a nasty Buzzsaw kick to the skull that puts Riona onto the mat.  Reaching down, Jamie grabs Riona by her shirt and yanks back, pulling her right into a half-nelson!  Riona's almost too weak to fight back at this point, but still manages to break the hold with a well placed elbow to the sternum before pulling Flynn's arm back into a desperate Hammerlock!  Jamie screams as his right arm is twisted back, but Riona makes the pain worse as she moves around as if  to pull him into a Keylock, but instead plants her foot against his shoulder and wrenches up on his arm, gaining a big amount of leverage, trying to tear Flynn's shoulder out of its socket with the extended Hammerlock. Jamie cries out as Riona attempts to pull up even farther, but her Reebok slips off Flynn's shoulder, and she has to release the hold to keep her balance.

Flynn holds his arm as he makes it back to his feet, with Riona letting him back up as she tries to take a few moments to recover herself.  Jamie is the first one to make a move as he comes forward with a huge elbow right into the side of Riona's face, but Riona quickly turns knocks Jamie back with one of her own!  Both seem to be tapping the the bottom of their reserves as the two begin trading forearms for a few moments.  Jamie gets the last word as he rocks Riona with a nasty elbow before he runs back to the ropes and comes off with a straight kick right to the gut!  Riona stumbles back into the ropes, but manages to catch her bearings and runs back across the ring and hits a jumping knee to the chest!  Flynn stands his ground, staggering a bit before he goes back to the ropes and comes back with a LARIAT!!! Because Jamie uses his left arm for the strike, it doesn't get as much as it should, allowing Riona to rolls backwards once she hits the ground from the impact, but she keeps rolling and gets up to her feet, running back to the ropes and coming back with a Dropkick that knocks Flynn back into the ropes himself.  The crowd stands in awe as these two pull it all out on the line in this match, as Jamie then comes off the ropes with a BURNING LARIAT!!!  Riona backflips from the move, and STAYS DOWN THIS TIME!.  Jamie breathes heavily as he stands above Riona, the crowd now getting back up and letting out a humongous cheer for the brutality these wrestlers have shown throughout this entire match. Jamie sighs as Riona begins to show life, and lifts Langly back up, but Riona suddenly knocks his arms away and spins around for a Discus Clothesline! FLYNN STAYS UP!  Riona curses a bit and spins around, slamming him again with another Discus Clothesline, but Jamie still stays up!  Increasingly fustrated with her opponent, Riona moves Jamie again, but he suddenly catches her with a sudden European Uppercut as she spins around!  Flynn then hits a quick chop before grabbing Riona's head and powering her back into the ropes with a series of elbows.

Jamie doesn't stop, just chaining the strikes together, viciously pounding his elbow right into Riona's temple over and over again, the crowd now counting them out. "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12...13...14...15...16...17...18...19..." Jamie slows down as he goes on, using all his energy behind these strikes, finally stepping back after nineteen.  Riona stares blankly from the ropes, but suddenly takes a few steps forward and turns to stare at Flynn, the crowd in shock as Riona's taken all of these blows and still comes back for more. Flynn also stares back at Riona in shock, then suddenly spins around for a ROARING ELBOW!!! Riona goes down hard, looking unconcious, and Flynn just collapses onto her. 1...2...THR-NO!!! Somehow, Riona gets a shoulder up off the mat, though it doesn't even look like she knows where she is right now. Jamie sits up and stares blankly at Kutterman, unable to believe that that chain of strikes wasn't enough to put her down, finally just rolling off her and laying still, needing some time to regain his energy after all that.  Jamie finally stands up as Riona starts to move, rolling to her feet as blood now is flowing down from her nose.  Both wrestlers look like hell, but Jamie looks a bit better as he grabs Riona and pulls her into a side-headlock once more.  Riona punches Jamie in the side weakly, but breaks the hold as she slips out with a push on Jamie that sends him into the ropes.  The push is too weak for it to cause Flynn to bounce back, but as he turns around, he comes face first with another of Riona's mean chops, and even though it's not nearly as strong at this point in the match, it still has the effect of pushing Jamie right back into the ropes.  Flynn pushes off of the ropes and goes for another straight kick to the gut, but Riona is able to catch his foot.  Riona pulls Jamie backwards a bit as he hops up and down for a bit to catch his balance, but Riona kicks his leg out, causing him to fall to the mat before spinning locking in the FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK!

Riona has the hold locked in dead center of the middle of the ring, Flynn's arms falling short of grabbing the ropes as Riona forces Flynn to scream.  He has nowhere to go, so he opts to fight it instead and hits Riona with a nasty slap as she sits up to increase the pressure!  Riona doesn't take this too kindly and slaps Flynn in retaliation, knocking him back to the mat as Riona continues to work the pressure on the high-flyer's knees.  Fearing that if he doesn't get out now Riona will punish him until he gives, Flynn starts to get some momentum, trying to turn Riona over to reverse the pressure.  Riona knows this hold well though, and rocks in the other direction to keep Flynn from powering them over and putting more pressure on Jamie's knees, causing Jamie to slump to the mat once again.  The crowd is on their feet for both competitors as the PA announcer makes the announcement that the match has gone on now for over 50 minutes.  The sounds of the crowd manages to wake Jamie up from his pain daze and he begins to fight, trying to turn Riona over as she screams "NONONONONO!" over and over again, keeping the pressure on Flynn, even pounding on his leg in the hold to add more pain and slow his momentum down.  However, that's not really enough to stop Jamie he manages to roll Riona over and add pressure onto Riona.  Riona immediately breaks the hold and rolls to her feet, slamming a boot down onto Jamie's right arm once again.  Jamie rolls to his feet holding his arm, but Riona grabs Flynn and pulls him into another side headlock.  Riona wrenches the hold on tight, but her weakened state is her undoing as Jamie pulls out of the hold rather quickly and rocks Riona with another stiff elbow before he grabs ahold of her and throws her into the corner so hard she flips over the top turnbuckle and slides onto the apron!  Flynn doesn't even have time to react as she climbs the turnbuckle and flies off with a high Cross-Body Block!  Riona hooks the leg in the middle of the ring... 1...2...THRE...KICKOUT!

 Riona rolls to her feet in disbelief that she can't put Jamie away, but gets a harsh wakeup call as she leans over to pick Jamie up and he punches her right in the face!  Riona flails backwards as Jamie rolls to his feet and gives Langly a knee right to the gut!  Jamie grabs a handful of hair, Riona's momentum completely disappearing as she's rocked with elbow after elbow to the skull.  Finally pushing Riona into the ropes, Flynn grabs her and whips her into the opposite side.  Riona runs back, ducking the attempt at another roundhouse kick, but suddenly finds herself on Jamie's shoulders as he grabs her on the return trip with a fireman's carry!  Jamie quickly throws Riona off his shoulders and straight into his knee as he nails her with the GO 2 SLEEP!  Riona falls to the mat from the move and Jamie looks down at her, a small slimmer of respect in his eyes as he tries to regain his breath.  Looking to the nearest turnbuckle, Flynn walks over to the corner and climbs, perched on the top waiting for Riona to get back to her feet.  Riona gets to her knees, completely unaware of where Jamie is until she suddenly leaps forwards, crotching Jamie on the top!  Riona and Jamie both look completely spent as Rio climbs out of the ring and starts to climb up the turnbuckle that Jamie sits atop precariously.  Riona climbs up behind Jamie and the fans come alive as they all begin to realize what Riona's going for, but Jamie knows this too as he throws an elbow behind him into Riona's gut.  Langly almost falls off the top from the elbow, which would effectively end the match right there and then, but she keeps her balance and sends a clubbing forearm right into the back of Jamie's neck.  The two trade blows on the top, but Riona gets the edge as Flynn's strength starts to give out on him, with Riona's blows finally taking their toll.  Riona slips her arms under Jamie's and locks in the FULL NELSON!  Jamie's eyes shoot wide open as the pain and realization kicks in, but there's nothing that can be done at this point as Riona pulls Jamie back up to his feet... AND SWINGS OFF THE TOP ROPE, TURNING JAMIE AND DESTROYING HIM WITH THE NUCLEAR DETONATOR!!!!

   The crowd, the announcers, and even referee John Martes is going insane as both Riona and Jamie lie completely out of it on the mat.  Finally, John Martes feels no choice and begins to make the count... 1... 2.... 3.... 4.... 5.... Riona starts to roll over... 6... 7... Riona gets to a knee as JAIME grabs the bottom rope and starts to rise... 8... Riona gets to a vertical position... 9... and Jamie manages to get up!  The crowd is blowing the roof off the Honda Center as both Riona and Jamie look at each other, respect and hate mixed together in their eyes, and BEGIN TO UNLOAD ON EACH OTHER ONCE AGAIN!  Everyone's on their feet as Riona and Jamie pummel each other with everything that's left in the tank, but Riona looks to have a bit more there as she pushes Jamie back into the ropes and starts to wail on him with knife-edge after knife-edge chop.  Blood even starts to trickle out of Jamie's chest from all the abuse it's taken in the match, and that just makes Riona seemingly chop harder.  After what seems like an eternity of hearing nothing but the sound of hand on chest, Martes pulls Riona off of Jamie to let him breath, but Riona is having none of that as she pushes John out of the way and charges Jamie, who ducks down and sends Riona flying over the top with a BAAAACK BODYDROP!!!!  Riona rolls to her stomach from the impact, and Jamie looks down at her with pity before dropping down and rolling out of the ring himself.  Slowly pulling Riona up, Jamie suddenly locks her in a reverse Front Facelock, lifting her up for her very own BOMB DROPPER REM...NO!  Riona floats overtop and kicks Jamie in the back of the knee, before going for the BDR herself!  All the damage in the match, however, has piled up on Riona and she can't lift him for the hold, so she drops to a knee and yanks back with a Dragon Sleeper!  However, Riona can't win the match on the outside, and she certainly cannot win it when Jamie shows incredible flexibility and boots her right in the face, causing her to drop the hold.  Jamie holds his neck tenderly as he gets to his feet, Riona doing the same as the announcer comes over saying there are 4 minutes left on the time limit.

Riona starts to limp over as Jamie suddenly gets to his feet and smashes Riona with one of her own stiff lariats!  Jamie barely is able to stand at this point as Riona gets up, the lariat being weakened by how tired they both are.  Jamie knocks Riona back down to the floor with a viscious knee to the gut followed by a particularly nasty Curb Stomp.  Jamie walks away from Riona, looking to get back into the ring so the match can actually have a winner, and climbs on the apron.  He turns and looks at Riona, who is down on her hands and knees and holding her throat and chest, but is still getting back up.  Taking a moment to look at the crowd, Jamie measures up Riona as she gets up and charges her from the ring apron!  Flynn flips forward as he dives at Riona, but ends up slamming into the floor as Langly quickly side steps him and leaves Flynn hurting nothing but himself. Turning right back towards Jamie afterwards Riona sees Flynn sitting up, holding his back in pain after that last move which cues Riona to hit Flynn with a nasty stiff kick in the back!  Flynn arches his back as Riona gets a measure of revenge, screaming at him "IT DOESN'T FEEL VERY GOOD YOU SON OF A BITCH!!!"  She nails him again with another stiff kick and grins, grabbing ahold of Jamie's hair and forcing him to sit before smashing another stiff kick into his back.  One more kick is all Riona takes at Flynn before she lifts him up to his feet and grabs his injured right arm.  She takes a great deal of time positioning Flynn so his back is facing the ring barricade, before whipping him right into it. The expression of anger. intensity, and fustration that has been on Flynn's face fades away to one of pain after this, but Riona isn't done yet as she goes right back over to Jamie and grabs him by the arm again to whip him into the ring this time so Flynn's back collides with the ring apron. With a satisfied smirk on her face Riona taunts Jamie a bit before she grabs a head-full of hair and rams him in the face with another nasty knee.

Jamie slumps down against the ring, completely spent as Riona catches one last bit of breath.  She knows she only has 2 more minutes to finish Jamie off, but she also realizes that after everything so far, she may not be able to do anything outside of breaking his neck to beat him.  She weakly tugs Jamie back up to a vertical base and rolls him in before sliding in herself.  She doesn't hesitate to attack as she steps over Jamie and locks in a CAMEL CLUTCH!  Jamie's eyes shoot wide open as his jaw is pulled apart by the classic submission, but he shakes his head no to Martes' questioning and grabs ahold of the bottom rope to break the hold.  Riona sighs and breaks, pulling Jamie back up to his feet and immediately kicking him in the gut, causing him to double over as she locks him in a standing head-scissors.  The crowd comes to life as Riona slings her arms out to the side and screams "DEVOLUTION!!!!!"  She goes to pull Jamie into the Styles Driver '03, but Flynn shows a remarkable amount of strength and BACKDROPS HER OVER THE TOP AGAIN!  This time, Riona was able to grab ahold of the top rope and pull herself onto the apron.  Jamie turns around and sees Riona standing there, and charges right into Riona's shoulder as she ducks down under the top!  Jamie stumbles backwards as Riona takes a deep breath and SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE!!!  Flynn turns around... AND RUNS RIGHT INTO A CORKSCREW DROPKICK!  THE PICTURE OF PERFECTION!!!!  Jamie stumbles backwards as Riona lands hard on her stomach from the move, and he gets his arms tangled in the ropes on the other side!  Riona rolls to her feet, hoping to see Jamie on the mat, and screams as she sees him completely unconscious in the ropes.  She runs over, attempting to pull Jamie out of the ropes, her eyes frantic as she knows that this is her chance, she can finally beat Jamie Flynn, fair, in the middle of the...

* * * DING DING DING * * *

Riona drops to her knees, staring lifelessly at Jamie as the crowd comes to their feet, giving a standing ovation so loud that you could barely hear Eric Emerson over the crowd...

Eric Emerson: "This match has gone on for the full sixty minute time limit, and therefore, is considered A DRAW!!!!."

Riona pounds the mat in absolute anguish and frustration as John Martes unties Jamie Flynn from the ropes, the Anahiem crowd giving these two wrestlers a huge ovation like none that has ever been heard.  A chant of "MATCH OF THE YEAR" starts to reverberate throughout the arena as Martes holds both Riona and Flynn's hands up for the crowd to see, but neither looks like a winner.  Jamie looks out of the loop and dazed, his eyes glassed over as he probably doesn't even know where he is, and Riona looks to be almost in tears on her knees... But, the crowd still cheers and chants as we fade... to... black...
