Clash of the DEFIANTS 9/8/20

8 Sep 2020

DEFIANCE Wrestle-Plex, New Orleans, Louisiana (seats 4,000)

TAG PARTY II OPENING

DDK:
Welcome one and all to our latest DEFIANCE Special! Tonight, the stars of DEFIANCE and BRAZEN Present: TAG PARTY II! We’re your hosts, “Downtown” Darren Keebler and as always is Lance Warner! Lance, how are you?

Lance:
I’m staying busy as all get out, partner! We covered ACTS of DEFIANCE! We’ve covered UNCUTs, and BRAZEN just recently had its own big show in CLASH of the BRAZEN! The Barrio Boys’ own Gerardo Vilallobos win his first title by winning the BRAZEN Onslaught Title, along with Les Enfants Terribles not only retaining the BRAZEN Tag Team Titles, but also Killjoy defeating Nathaniel Eye to become the BRAZEN Champion and giving LET all their gold!

DDK:
Definitely all noteworthy! Nathaniel Eye has just been cleared for competition today after receiving ten stitches to close a wound in his lip left by Killjoy. But tonight, he promises it won’t stop he and his best friend, Dex Joy from winning TAG PARTY II! For the rules, we’ll go to you, Lance. 

Lance:
Well, I’m right here so that part is easy!

The rules flash on screen:

TAG PARTY II RULES:

-SIX MATCHES OF TWO BLOCKS EACH (BLOCK A, BLOCK B, BLOCK C)

-FOLLOWING THOSE, THREE MATCHES TO CROWN THE WINNERS OF EACH BLOCK!

-THE FINALS IS A THREE-WAY ELIMINATION-STYLE TAG TEAM MATCH! THE WINNER WILL BE AWARDED TAG PARTY TROPHIES AS WELL AS A $75,000 CASH PRIZE PRESENTED BY FAVOURED SAINTS!

-IN THE EVENT OF A DRAW, BOTH TEAMS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM CONTENTION!

DDK:
And from what we understand, there was a slight shuffle from the previously announced Block A matches?

Lance:
That’s right! One of the most talked-about matches from ACTS of DEFIANCE was a first-time ever match between “Twists and Turns” Oscar Burns and “Queen of the Ring” Lindsay Troy that saw Burns get the victory… because the fans asked to pit them in the ring together again, your OPENING contest will see them fight alongside their BRAZEN tag partners in the VERY FIRST ROUND! Team Rhyming Names are Cool of “Twists and Turns” Oscar Burns and “Mellow Yellow” George Othello take on Team Shut Up And Hit ‘Em consisting of Troy and one of her pupils and perhaps the brightest star going right now on the BRAZEN roster, Declan “DEC4L” Alexander! 

DDK:
I don’t know if there’s a bigger way to start the show than that, but first, let's thank Favoured Saints, the company making this event possible!

The scene cuts to several members of the Favoured Saints board of directors and their families in the front row of the event!

Lance:

And we have a special guest in the house tonight! We have just finalized a contract with former RUSH Heavyweight Champion and former nbW World Heavyweight Champion... Brock Newbludd! We'll be seeing more of him in the weeks to come!

The camera cuts to Brock Newbludd, saluting the camera and appearing to take great interest in what's to come!

The camera then cuts to the stage with special TAG PARTY II trophies, as well as a display for the $75,000 check going to the winning team! And with that… 

A FEW WORDS...

TEAM RHYMING NAMES ARE COOL!

Standing in front of the TAG PARTY II backdrop, “Twists and Turns” Oscar Burns and “Mellow Yellow” George Othello greet the fans. Burns has on his regular chipper smile. Othello has on… well, a pretty laissez-faire stare. 

Oscar Burns:
Hello, GCs! Team Graps, are you ready to party? Cause if you are, we got a party for you! TAG PARTY II! Right, Georgie?

Mellow Yellow shrugs. 

George Othello:
Yeah. 

Oscar Burns:
Well, GC, you happen to be in luck cause when we did this in January 2019, I was in the finals! How you feeling about our chances?

George shrugs. 

Oscar Burns:
Lively fellow, yeah? Well, to the other teams participating… we won’t be letting Team Graps down! Georgie, boy, let’s go make history!

Burns storms off and the young Welsh prodigy watches him leave. He turns to the camera blankly, then gives a half-smile. 

George Othello:
...We got this. 

And calmly walks off.

 

TEAM SHUT UP AND HIT 'EM

“Talk about an odd couple.”

Backstage. DEFArena.

Backdrop. Spray painted BRAZEN Tag Party II banner.

Team “Shut Up and Hit ‘Em.” Lindsay Troy and Declan Alexander, already dressed to fight. The Queen’s got her game face on. DEC4L’s looking eager and energetic, hopping from one foot to the other.

Lindsay Troy:
And that’s all it is, talk. Those who have followed my career know I’ve been a part of plenty of odd couple pairings over the years and have found immeasurable success. And those who know anything about Declan here already know that he’s one of my kids. He’s trained in my system and he’s learned from the best wrestlers on the planet. And that makes him very, very dangerous.

Declan Alexander:
That’s right Miss Troy, I used a BBP. That’s BIG. BRAIN. PLAY. To find the best place for me to succeed. Years of training for speed runs and competition eSports conditioned me for the type of drive and commitment that I’d need to thrive in the sport that I love. With the hype of Miss Troy, Miss Valentine, and the others at the dojo I’m here at BRAZEN to earn all the GGs on my way straight to the top.

Lindsay Troy:
We’re not just coming for the tournament win. We’re coming to make a statement. It starts with Oscar Burns and George Othello. God help whoever’s left standing at the end.

Declan Alexander:
That’s right DEC4LLION, we’re bringing the dub home to all of you. After we’re done, I’m going to have Miss Troy on the VLOG for a celebration of the MOST. EPIC. PROPORTIONS! You’re down with that, aren’t you Miss T?

Troy looks over at her young dojo graduate. Her eyes narrow; she’d hoped he’d stay on message but, well, he’s got a brand and an image to sell after all...

Lindsay Troy:
…..maybe……

Declan Alexander:
SWEET! It’s going to be SO LIT!

Cut away!

BLOCK A MATCH: TEAM RHYMING NAMES ARE COOL (“TWISTS AND TURNS” OSCAR BURNS/”MELLOW YELLOW” GEORGE OTHELLO) VS. TEAM SHUT UP AND HIT ‘EM (“QUEEN OF THE RING” LINDSAY TROY/DECLAN “DEC4L” ALEXANDER)

The crowd exploded first for Team Rhyming Names are Cool as “Raise Your Flag” by MAN WITH A MISSION played and out came “Twists and Turns” Oscar Burns with his new protege, “Mellow Yellow” George Othello! The laid-back guy in the all-yellow wrestling attire matched Burns’ orange. The two men entered the ring and awaited the competition. 

“Legendary” by 7kingZ played next and brought out “Queen of the Ring” Lindsay Troy and her BRAZEN partner and pupil of her own, Declan “DEC4L” Alexander. Alexander himself is coming off a big win at the last show over DEFIANCE veteran Troy Matthews. With all four stars in the ring now, it was time for a great opener.

Troy and Burns picked right up where they left off at ACTS of DEFIANCE, taking things to the mat! Burns ruled the mat for the moment and then tossed Troy around with a few waistlocks.  The Lady of the Hour fought back and worked over his knee in a reversal of ACTS, but Burns fought back with a roll-up. The two traded roll-ups on the mat and then had the crowd on their feet!

Big Declan Alexander and then George Othello tagged in! Othello controlled the bigger man with a series of wrist-locks, but the fight went to the corner and Declan let Othello have it with a series of chops followed by a big suplex for a two-count. Declan tried to set him up early for the Play of the Game, but Mellow Yellow remained calm and reversed into a Backslide into a Bridge he called the Yellow Brick Road that ALMOST gets the win! 

Troy tags in and then she takes the fight to Othello, lighting him up with some stiff Shoot-style kicks to the chest and then getting a two-count. She tries to turn around and then tries for the Queen’s Gambit… but Othello rolls her right up into a Half-Crab! She doesn’t expect the technical prodigy to pull off what he just did, but he did! And now he has the hold back! Troy makes the ropes, but the damage might be done!

Burns makes the tag and both he and Othello follow up with Running European Uppercuts from Othello, then Burns… then Othello, then Burns again! Then Burns goes back to working the leg with a Figure Four! The two former FISTs stare one another down, but Burns cranks back on the hold until Alexander comes back with a Knee Drop to save his mentor! 

Burns and Othello hit a double-team Flapjack Uppercut for two, but when they try to set something else up in the corner moments later, Troy sends Othello over the ropes with a Back Body Drop, then CRACKS Burns with a Rolling Koppu Kick! 

The tag gets made to Declan Alexander!

When Othello tries to get back in, he gets BOOTED off the ring apron with his GGEZ Kick (Yakuza Kick), and then TOSSES Burns in the air with his signature YEET~! (Flapjack throw). The crowd is amazed with the strength on display by the vlogger as he grabs Burns and gets a two-count off a DDT! Declan tries to end it, but Burns takes him down to the mat and has Graps of Wrath I locked in! The Grounded Octopus Stretch has him dead to rights… 

TROY WITH THE SAVE, DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! 

Troy breaks it up and the crowd go crazy! 

Othello leaps into the ring… UPPERCUT IT OUT! 

Springboard European Uppercut connects on Troy!

All four down in the ring and the crowd is going crazy!

Burns and Alexander are the legal men, but Burns tags to his pupil! and Othello are there! Double Hard-Out Headbutt by Othello and Burns to Alexander and Othello gets two… followed right into Code Yellow! The Triangle Choke is on… but Declan Alexander has him lifted up… POWERBOMB! 

Burns tries to save his pupil again… 

QUEEN’S GAMBIT BY TROY!

The Technical Spectacle goes flying out of the ring when Declan finally has Othello…

PLAY OF THE GAME!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

WINNERS: Team Shut Up and Hit ‘Em @ 14:42 (Alexander over Othello, Play of the Game)

DDK:
WHAT A MATCH! Alexander just came through in the clutch and won it for his team with Play of the Game! Both these kids have a real bright future!

Lance:
That they do! What a start to the show! Troy and Alexander are victorious!

In the ring, Burns and Troy meet up as Burns goes over to help out with Othello. He helps him to his feet. Burns and Troy look to one another and each put up one finger… 

DDK:
One more match! They’re gonna have it soon!

Lance:
Can’t wait for that, but tonight, we’ve got a lot of TAG PARTY II coming right up! 

BLOCK A MATCH: FLEX IN A BOX (KLEIN/FLEX KRUGER) VS. THE ODD COUPLE (JESTAL/”BIG ROSE” ROOSEVELT OWENS)

“Flex” by SIP plays for the fans next and out come the boo birds for Flex Kruger and Klein, along with their manager, The O-Face! At one point, the two held gold as two-thirds of the World Trios Championships with The D and nearly became Unified Tag Team Champions at one point against The Sky High Titans. They were regular associates who were about to fight two people who had never teamed before. 

“The Mad Hatter” by Melanie Martinez plays and out comes Jestal… but no Roosevelt Owens. Everybody’s favorite wacky clown plays up for the fans until halfway down when “Momma Said Knock You Out” by Tech N9ne plays and out comes the 6’6”, 468-pound member of Heavy Artillery. He’s the BRAZEN star with Jestal being a former Tag Team Champion, but Big Rose tells him to follow HIS lead. Jestal ignores him and manages to blow into a few rocket balloons and launch them into the audience! Once they get into the ring, the match starts. 

Klein wants to start and Jestal wants in, but Big Rose won’t let him. Klein and Rose lock up, but it starts as a stalemate. Rose finally shoves him back into the ropes, but Klein tries again. Big Rose knocks him down with a shoulder and knocks Klein back, sending him back to Flex Kruger. Kruger tags in and the slightly bigger member of Flex in a Box goes for it. He slugs right into him, but Big Rose THROWS him across the ring with a Biel, then hits a Body Avalanche followed by another big Scoop Slam out of the corner for a two-count. Rosey Owens looks good for the moment… then Jestal launches another rocket balloon at his own partner for fun! Rosey glares at him, but Flex Kruger decides enough is enough is and CLUBS him from behind with a a shot. Then Jestal tags in! 

Jestal goes low (duh) on Flex Kruger with a pair of Dropkicks to the knee and then goes for a Sleeper! Flex tries shaking him off and runs to his corner to do it. Jestal then gets blasted with a suplex and throws him across the ring! Klein tags in and The Box Man has some fun, tossing Jestal right back to their corner wiht another suplex. They take a couple tags in and out taking turns, tossing him with Scoop  Slams while Big Rose grits his teeth from his corner. 

Flex tries to end things with a Torture Rack, but Jestal bites his ear! Flex freaks out and starts babbling to Kleina about turning into a clown now that a clown bit him. Jestal then locks in Dragon Eyes! The hold is locked in and Flex is stumbling around the ring until Rosey tags in! The big member of Heavy Artillery slams into Flex and hits a Scoop Slam, then one for Klein trying to run him. Then one for Flex. One for Klein. Another for Flex. Another for Klein! Big Rose goes back and hits a HUGE Samaon Drop to Flex and hooks the leg, but Klein elbows him. Jestal wants the tag, but Roosevelt won’t let him have it while Klein tries to slam the giant. Klein continues elbowing him… then slams him down! 

Klein has the crowd cheering, but when he realizes he has to pick him up again, he shakes his head. He tries for Think Outside, but Rosey manages to barely shove him away. Jestal fires another rocket balloon, hitting his own partner in the eye !Rosey stumbles back and Jestal tags himself in again. He gets in, but Rosey PLANTS him with a massive Belly to Belly Suplex! The crowd jeers the big member of Heavy Artillery as he stumbles to the back. Klein decides to take the free lunch… he hits Think Outside! 

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

Klein pumps his fist in the air and celebrates with Flex who comes in to hug his partner!

WINNERS: Flex in a Box @ 9:45 with Think Outside (Klein pins Jestal)

DDK:
Big win for Flex in a Box! The Toybox have had issues with Heavy Artillery ever since they tricked them out of their locker room a few weeks ago! And Rosey looks like he had enough of this alliance. 

Lance:
Whatever the case may be, Flex in a Box reaps the benefits and they’ll fight Team Shut Up and Hit ‘Em in the finals a little later. 

DDK:
Indeed! Coming up next, we move on to Block B! It’s a battle of The Biggest Best Boys! DEFIANCE’s “Biggest Boy” Dex Joy and his best friend, now former BRAZEN Champion taking on the team of Jack Harmen and Son… ny’s Nephew! DEFIANCE’s Jack Harmen teaming with one half of the BRAZEN Tag Team Champions, Archer Silver! We've got comments from The Biggest Best Boys!

WORDS AGAIN!

Somewhere backstage, it is “The Biggest Boy” Dex Joy and his best friend who is sadly no longer the BRAZEN champion, Nathaniel Eye. Eye is pointing at his lip which has been freshly stitched up after he lost the title recently. 

Nathaniel Eye:
Just last week Killjoy did this to my lip. I just barely survived fighting that dude and I lost the BRAZEN championship … and that sucks. I really liked being champion because for the last three months I have been carrying BRAZEN to new heights! Tonight, my bff and I … 

He and big Dex Joy next to him have an arm over one anothers shoulders. 

Nathaniel Eye:
Tonight we each have something to prove. I want to show that isn’t the title that makes the man, it’s the man that makes the title! I discovered something about myself and that’s that I am good enough to carry this brand on my back and I can do that with or without the BRAZEN title. I do have a rematch coming for that title but tonight, Dex and I are going to show everybody in this tournament that this isn’t just their time … this time is ours! Tonight I'm going to be the person that puts BRAZEN center stage where it belongs!

Dex Joy has the biggest, brightest smile on his face. 

Dex Joy:
Just like Nate here did, I’m on the hunt for gold but tonight we’re on the hunt for the TAG PARTY II tournament trophies baby! Do you know how much happiness we could buy with $75,000, Nate?

Nathaniel Eye:
I imagine you can rent happiness for a few hou…

Dex Joy:
NO NO NO NO NO Keep it clean, pally! We’re gonna save the locker room talk for when we go back to locker room with those trophies and with that cash money in our hands at the end of the night!

Nathaniel Eye:
Can do buddy!

Dex Joy:
Tonight while Nate is on a path of change, I’m on the path to glory! I’ve been kicking around DEFIANCE Wrestling for a bit now and it’s about damn time that I show that I’m a rising star in DEFIANCE Wrestling! Tonight, Big Dex Energy EXPLODES!!!!

Both friends bump fists and blow it up.

BLOCK B MATCH: THE BIGGEST BEST BOYS! (“THE BIGGEST BOY” DEX JOY/NATHANIEL EYE) VS. JACK HARMEN AND SON...NY’S NEPHEW (JACK HARMEN/BRAZEN TAG TEAM CHAMPION ARCHER SILVER)

“Go Big or Go Home” by Chuxx Morris plays next and out comes “The Biggest Boy” Dex Joy, followed shortly behind by the recently become former BRAZEN Champion Nathaniel Eye! The two best friends dap fists and blow it up (with all respect to Calico Rose) and then head to the ring, ready to battle. For Nathaniel Eye, this tournament can be payback as he’s fighting the stablemate of the man that took the belt from him and a win over Archer could go towards getting a rematch for the title against Killjoy. 

“Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne brings out the opposition. Jack Harmen! Legendary wrestler and one-half of the BRAZEN Tag Team Champions with his own son, Archer Silver. Silver brushes past Harmen, but Harmen doesn’t let it get to him and in fact, looks somewhat eager for the kid to show him something. Archer continues his swagger, playing air guitar on his half of the BRAZEN Tag Team Titles like a dick to the sounds of Crazy Train. They are finally in the ring… and EYE GOES AFTER ARCHER WITH A DROPKICK!

The two men are picking up where they left off from CLASH of the BRAZEN! Eye explodes and throws chops in the corner to Archer, letting him have it in the corner. Eye takes him down across the ring with a big Spear! He rains down the punches on Archer while Dex is cheering on his buddy. Harmen watches Archer take a pasting, but when Eye runs at him, Archer moves and he gets plastered against the buckle with a failed second Spear! 

Archer goes to work, BLASTING him with his signature Shoot Kicks, nailing him in the chest before a third shot knocks Eye down, then The Prince of Pricks gets a two-count! He throws Eye in the corner and hits the Pressure Button! The Running Big Boot in the corner connects for a two, prompting Harmen to say “MY KICK FINISHES PEOPLE!” Silver gives him a look, then tags him in. Harmen waits for Eye to try and stand, then gets a Springboard Thesz Press on Eye for another two-count!

Dex Joy cheers on his partner while Harmen hits a Snap Suplex on Eye, followed up with a Springboard Discus Leg Drop! Harmen then tags out to Silver. He goes back to the corner and Archer nails a few kicks to the back, then hits the ropes for a Running Penalty Kick to the chest! He goes for the cover again, but this time Eye kicks out! When Archer tries to hit the Silver Bullet, he ducks… then Eye comes back with the Starry Eyed Surprise! (Flying Knee Strike!)

Dex is waiting for the tag…

Almost…

And he gets it!

And Big Dex Energy gets unleashed! A big Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex for Archer, then a Running Corner Splash! He takes him out again and then lands a Release German Suplex! Archer goes tumbling back across the ring when Dex runs the ropes and then hits a Running Seated Senton! One! Two… broken up by Harmen! 

Harmen tries landing the Locomotive on Dex… but he gets caught… DEX BOMB! But out of nowhere, The Silver Bullet (Gamengiri) by Archer connects on Dex from behind!

ONE!

TWO!

SAVED BY EYE!

Archer tosses Eye aside, but when he takes his eye of Dex…

DEXY’S MIDNIGHT RUNNER (POUNCE-AH!)

The tag goes to Dex, who heads up top…

EYES UP HERE! (Diving Moonsault)

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

WINNERS: The Biggest Best Boys! @ 12:02 (Eye over Archer, Eyes Up Here)

The two best friends celebrate and Nathaniel Eye looks down at Archer, mouthing that he’s coming back for the BRAZEN Championship. Meanwhile, Harmen tries to check on Archer, but Silver pays him no mind. He takes back his half of the BRAZEN Tag Team Titles, shows off the belt to show he’s still a champion and then heads to the back. 

DDK:
Nice win by Joy and Eye! Eye gets a small measure of revenge against Les Enfants Terribles and we just heard him promise he’s coming back for the BRAZEN Championship! 

Lance:
Indeed! Interesting that Harmen was trying to win this with the tag partner of his estranged son, but right now, we’ll have to move on! Our other Block B match pits the team of the first-ever BRAZEN Champion Reinhardt Hoffman, along with DEFIANCE’s Stalker - Stalk ‘N’ Hoff against the team of DEFIANCE and BRAZEN up and comers with similar mindsets… “Black Out” Patrick Cassidy and Doug “Moonshine” Matton! We’re gonna cut comments from both teams, then we’ll head to the match… coming up next!

SOME MORE WORDS!

TEAM NO CHASER

“Black Out” Pat Cassidy and Doug “Moonshine” Matton stand apart from each other, staring each other directly in the eye. The two soon-to-be partners are standing in front of a TAG PARTY II banner. Neither is moving nor are they breaking their gaze. Behind them stands a BRAZEN employee holding a clipboard and looking a little nervous being between these two intense men.

Matton snaps his fingers and points to the employee without taking his eyes off Cassidy.

Doug Matton:
Read it back to us.

The nervous employee reads from the clipboard.

BRAZEN employee:
Okay - so, um,  we’ve got one point for every big move. Ten points for every near fall. Thirty points for breaking up a pinfall and saving the match. Fifty points for a successful pinfall victory. Minus fifty points for a count out loss, minus seventy-five points for a DQ loss, and minus one hundred points for taking a pinfall loss. 

Matton again points to the employee, still not breaking his gaze.

Doug Matton:
And the stips?

BRAZEN employee:
Whoever ends the tournament with the least points picks up the tab for three months.

Matton and Cassidy still haven’t broken their stare. The employee’s words hang in the air for a minute, and then Cassidy slowly reaches out for a handshake.

Cassidy:
Your terms are acceptable. Let’s kick some ass.

Matton takes Cassidy’s hand, and they shake. Their facial expressions slowly morph into a smile.

And with that, we switch to brief words from their opponents. 

Stalk ‘N’ Hoff

Scene open to Stalker and Reinhardt Hoffman staring into the camera with the backdrop of Stalker’s ‘nest’ behind them. A smirk across both of their faces as they address the camera.

Stalker:
TAG PARTY II is just another opportunity for me to show you all what DEFIANCE is like under Stalker’s World!

Reinhardt Hoffman:
Welcome to the Boss fight! No one is getting past Stalk ‘N’ Hoff!

Stalker:
Welcome to the tag team of BRAZEN’s best weapon and DEFIANCE’s new ruler! The Tag Party is ours!

Hoffman growls into the camera while Stalker slaps his chest before they exit off camera.

BLOCK B MATCH: TEAM NO CHASER (“BLACK OUT” PATRICK CASSIDY/DOUG “MOONSHINE” MATTON) VS. STALK ‘N’ HOFF (STALKER/REINHARDT HOFFMAN)

After the comments from both teams air, “It’s On” by Korn plays and Stalker comes out first, looking at the crowd and paying them little mind. Hoffman behind him shortly and smirks. Stalker whispers something to Hoffman and he nods as he follows him closely. The two of them enter the ring without much pomp and circumstance. Hoffman himself made it to the finals of the BRAZEN Onslaught tournament and though he came up short, he was still a dangerous technician while Stalker was… well, fucking Stalker!

“Gonna Be A Blackout Tonight” plays and the crowd react favorably to the newcomer PAtrick Cassidy, along with Doug “Moonshine” Matton! Cassidy has been turning heads so far in DEFIANCE in a short amount of time while Doug “Moonshine” Matton has been one of the true rising stars of the BRAZEN brand. Cassidy as a fighter and Matton as a technician… who loves to drink. When the two make it to the ring…

THEY GET BLINDSIDED BY STALKER AND HOFFMAN AT THE BELL!

The crowd jeer Stalk N’ Hoff as they lay the attack in thick on both Cassidy and Matton before throwing Cassidy to the outside, to work over Matton! Stalker goes to Cassidy… 

NECKBREAKER ON THE RING APRON!

Black Out gets taken out and the crowd groans from the impact! Meanwhile, Ol’ Shiner is attacking Hoffman with a few rights, but he knees him in the gut and takes him down with a Knee Trembler, but only gets a two-count! 

Stalker comes back in and Hoffman tags in, putting the boots to Moonshine in the corner. He continues beating him down and then presses both feet down into his chest in the corner, looking to put the pressure on him. He scrapes his boot against his face, and then runs to the corner and then KICKS him with a Facewash! He drags him out of the corner… but Stalker pulls him up before going for a pin. They want to prolong Ol’ Shiner’s suffering before moving on to the rest of TAG PARTY II!

Hoffman gets the tag and CHOPS him down with a few good shots! He runs his forearm across Moonshine’s face, but the technical drunkard fights back with a right! He fires off two more and a strong haymaker to the gut that doubles him over, but Stalker tags in and a running knee puts him down. Cassidy finally starts to get up and limps over to his corner, getting cheers from the crowd! Stalker tags and then hits a boot to the back of Moonshine’s head! He tries to cover, but he BARELY kicks out! 

Hoffman gets the tag, but Moonshine BLASTS him with a Little Bit Of Buzz! The Knee Strike leads to him getting…

TAG TO CASSIDY!

He’s all fired up and it’s Clotheslines all around! One for Hoffman! And a shot for Stalker on the ring apron! He then takes Hoffman and then hits him with a Kitchen Sink Knee Lift! He runs the ropes and a big Arm Wrench Neckbreaker! One! Two! No!

Cassidy tries to set Hoffman up for a Pump Handle Drop, but he fights his way out behind him and then hits a Bridging German on Cassidy, but he only gets a two! Stalker reenters the ring and then charges at Cassidy, but Ol’ Shiner is back and sends him flying with a BEER-CAN-RANA! 

Stalker gets sent flying out of the ring, but Hoffman hits a knee to the back to send Matton out of the ring, but when he takes his eye off the ball…

THE IRISH GOODBYE!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

Stalker heads back into the ring with a chair in hand, but Cassidy is already out! Stalker and Hoffman had a good gameplan, but Team No Chaser fought through it all and they head up the ramp in celebration!

WINNERS: Team No Chaser @ 13:18 (Cassidy over Hoffman, The Irish Goodbye)

DDK:
Wow! I’d have to consider this something of an upset, but Team No Chaser wins and moves on to fight The Biggest Best Boys! For control of The B Block!

Lance:

That they do! Stalker and Hoffman controlled most of this, but what a big opportunity for these four rising stars!

DDK:
And now we move onto Block C and what a match we have… FIST of DEFIANCE Mikey Unlikely, teaming with one of BRAZEN’s biggest powerhouses, David Hightower as Rag$ to Riche$ taking on Perfectly Great! The team of Aleczander The Great and Mikey Unlikely’s own partner in crime, Perfection!

BLOCK C MATCH: RAG$ TO RICHE$ (FIST OF DEFIANCE MIKEY UNLIKELY/DAVID HIGHTOWER) VS. PERFECTLY GREAT (PERFECTION/ALECZANDER THE GREAT)

The next match would be interesting for the sheer dilemma the FIST of DEFIANCE Mikey Unlikely and his partner in crime, Perfection, would find themselves in. Perfection had just helped Mikey retain the FIST over his hated rival, Scott Stevens at ACTS of DEFIANCE. Now they would be pitted against each other. “Picture Perfect” by Helloween plays and out comes a conflicted Perfection. Aleczander The Great, his BRAZEN partner, has extensive experience as a Tag Team Champion including a record setting World Trios run, so as far as partners he couldn’t do better… but would that assuage his trepidation?

If Perfection was hesitant, The FIST of DEFIANCE was now! “Impious Pyre” by Savage Souls plays next and the FIST of DEFIANCE, Mikey Unlikely comes out with his BRAZEN patrner, redneck muscle David Hightower. The 6’4” and 275-pound monster had his signature chain around him as Mikey took up the front (as he always would because spotlight shines there the most). Mikey enters the ring and absorbs the TREMENDOUS jeering from the crowd. 

Perfection still looks like he doesn’t know what to do. He turns to Aleczander The Great and wants to know if he wants to step inside, but Mikey wants to start for his own team and is insistent that Perfection fights him based on his body language. Perfection shakes his head and tries to plead with Mikey, but the FIST ain’t hearing it. 

Perfection nods. 

The two men walk to the center of the ring and the bell rings… 

Time stands still. 

Neither man makes a move…

Then Mikey throws a punch…

And it misses by a country mile…

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The loud jeering is Perfection taking it like the wind behind his punch is a tornado and goes flying in exaggerated fashion to the outside!

The crowd is booing! Mikey is having a laughing fit and even Aleczander The Great seems to be in on the fix, laughing like an asshole as well. 

The ref reaches five…

Then ten. 

And it’s over. 

WINNER: Rag$ to Riche$ @ :20 via countout. 

The crowd is all over the four men for what they’ve done. Mikey hands Aleczander an envelope and Aleczander nods before taking his bribe and going home.

DDK:
I want to say that's a surprise, but… well, it's Mikey Unlikely! He's gotten himself a one way ticket to the Block C finals! And not to mention they may be fresh as daisies when it comes to whoever the fight in our next match!

DDK:
Very valid point! And speaking of, that match is next! We'll be seeing two of the top fan favorites of their respective brands! "Sub Pop" Scott Douglas and BRAZEN's Levi Cole against former DEFIANCE Tag Team Champion Conor Fuse… with The Game Boy… and BRAZEN's Berry Chernobyl, next!

BLOCK C MATCH: THE BOY SCOUT BRIGADE OR THE WORLD’S SECOND NICEST TAG TEAM (“SUB POP” SCOTT DOUGLAS/LEVI COLE) VS. TEAM CONOR WILL LEAD US TO VICTORY (CONOR FUSE/”FREE REFILLS” BERRY CHERNOBYL)

Scott Douglas and LeviCole arrived to the tunes of "Smiling and Dyin'" by Green River and the crowd greeted both well! While Levi Cole didn't win the BRAZEN Tag Team Championships with his partner, Butcher Victorious, who was now on the shelf thanks to Scrow, he could turn that around tonight!

Their opposition? Somebody Scott Douglas knew all too well.

"King Dedede" theme played and out came Conor Fuse! He scored a massive win over the legendary Deacon and tonight, not only had his hired muscle The Game Boy with him, but the mysterious member of Screen 7, "Fres Refills" Berry Chernobyl. Unlike his rotund and lanky partners, he had the good member of the group. Despite his overall chilling appearance, he was 6'3" and 247 of murdery goodness.

Scott and Conor start… whoops, sorry. Scott and Berry start because Conor clearly wants nothing to do with the man he and Tyler Fuse have antagonized for months. Instead, Berry held his own with the former SoHer champ for a moment and traded forearms. Scott used his wrestling experience and got the big man off his feet. All the while Game Boy stands stoically on the outside.

Scott tagged in big Levi Cole and The Boy Scout Brigade or The World's Second Nicest Tag Team took down Berry with a Double Shoulder Block, followed by stereo elbow drops! Cole took control of Berry with a German Suplex and looked great until Conor pulled the ropes down and sent Cole to the floor! The 265-pound amateur wrestling great got CLOBBERED by the Game Boy in the floor behind the ref's back!

It was Conor now in the ring getting a couple of shots on Cole, including a nice Missile Dropkick and a Side Scrolling Senton that each got two counts. When Cole fights back after that, Conor flees and tags Chernobyl. He comes in and hits a succession of roundhouse kicks that get two! Berry tries for his finish, The Pumphandle Purge, but Cole slips out and DRIVES him down with a Gutwrench Powerbomb!

TAG TO DOUGLAS!

Conor tags Berry, but Scott runs wild on his most recent hated rivals outside of Tyler Fuse and Stalker. He knocks him into the corner with a Dropkick, then a Northern lights suplex, then tosses him to the ropes for an Overhead Belly to Belly! Conor rolls out of the ring only to then get taken out with a Plancha! Scott plays to the crowd, then tosses Conor back in, but Game Boy CLOCKS him! A desperate Conor tries a rollup, but only gets two! Berry tags in and hits a huge Side Effect… no make that the Fear Effect for a two-count!

Conor pleads for The Game Boy to help, but Levi Cole meets him and knocks him off the corner! Conor goes to check on his muscle, but when Berry tries to stop him, Douglas turns him around and connects with a HUGE Superkick, followed right into…

SUB POP SUPLEX!

The Fisherman's Buster lands and he gets the 

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

WINNERS: The Boy Scout Brigade or The World's Second Nicest Tag Team @ 10:25, (Douglas over Chernoby, Sub Pop Suplex)

DDK:
Conor Fuse had a good gameplan, but Douglas and Cole wouldn't be denied here.  Now, The Game Boy is dragging Conor to safety!

Lance:
Great win here for them, but they'll have to contend with a fresh Rag$ to Riche$ later in the Block C finals!

DDK:
But first, we're on to Block A! It's Team Shut Up and Hit 'Em looking to defeat the powerhouse duo of Flex in a Box! That's up next, folks!

TAG PARTY II! BLOCK A FINALS MATCH

"Happy Song" by Bring Me The Horizon plays next and brings out “Queen of the Ring” Lindsay Troy and her BRAZEN partner and pupil of her own, Declan “DEC4L” Alexander for the second time! After a grueling opener against Team Rhyming Names are Cool, The Queen of the Ring and DEC4L get ready to take on perhaps the tournament's most experienced of teammates!

This time for Flex In a Box, “Man In The Box plays for the fans next and out come the boo birds for Flex Kruger and Klein, along with their manager, The O-Face! It's time for the Block A Final match to see who moves on to the TAG PARTY II main event finals!

Declan starts off for his team while Klein starts off for his. When the two circle up, Flex waits… and then Flex runs in when Declan;s back is to him and CLOCKS him with a forearm! Troy is shocked by what happened, that she barely notices when The Box Man comes running and knocks her off the apron! Flex hits a big Seated Powerbomb thirty seconds into the mat!

ONE!

TWO!

NO!

The crowd is shocked but, still abuzz as the action is quick! Flex in a Box want to get this over as quickly as possible so they have an easier path to the main event! Flex tags in Klein and a Double Gutbuster from the powerhouses only gets two! Klein decides to try and end things quickly and then nails a big Belly to Belly Suplex, but only gets another two!

Troy starts getting back to the apron, checking her jaw, but Declan is quickly getting worked over! Flex makes the tag and he tries to end it quickly with The Flex Plex, but when he tries to get the Full Nelson locked in, Declan backs him up and stomps on his feet to get him to let go! Flex tries to push him back…

BLIND TAG BY TROY!

Flex tries to nail Declan with a Clothesline… 

PLAY OF THE GAME!

For the second time tonight, Declan scores with the Ace Crusher…

ALL HAIL THE QUEEN!

The O-Face tries to warn Klein what’s happening, but Declan hits a GGEZ  Kick to knock him off the ring apron as Troy scores the dragonrana on Flex!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

THE CROWD CAN’T BELIEVE IT!

WINNERS: Team Shut Up And Hit ‘Em @ 3:36 (Troy over Flex, Play of the Game followed by All Hail The Queen!)

Flex in a Box came in with a great plan that saw them dominate, but one opening from Lindsay Troy and her pupil was about all it took to send them to the TAG PARTY II finals! Klein was trying to fan off Flex while O-Face continuously screamed bloody murder that her team lost and they wouldn’t be able to claim the $75,000 Cash Prize!

DDK:
What a blitz that match was! Moves, moves, moves, but in the end, Troy does what she does best and finds that opening! She and Declan Alexander have made a great team!

Lance:
That they have! And now they’re the first team that punches their ticket to the finals!

DDK:
That’s right! Up next could very well be our sleeper of the night! Team No Chaser of “Black Out” Patrick Cassidy and Doug “Moonshine” Matton take on The Biggest Best Boys! “The Biggest Boy” Dex Joy and his best friend, former BRAZEN Champion Nathaniel Eye! That match is next!

TAG PARTY II! BLOCK B FINALS MATCH

"Fix Up Look Sharp" by Dizzie Rascal plays next and out comes “The Biggest Boy” Dex Joy, followed shortly behind by the former BRAZEN Champion Nathaniel Eye! Coming off a win over Jack Harmen and Archer Silver, they look ready for whatever Team No Chaser are ready to bring.

“Workin" by Big Smo plays and the crowd react with cheers to the "Black Out" Patrick Cassidy, along with Doug “Moonshine” Matton for their great performance over the vicious Stalker and Reinhardt Hoffman. Their opponents weren't libel to use similar tactics, but would be very formidable! Eye and Matton shook hands in the middle of the ring.

The Battle for Block B begins… now!

Matton goes right for it by taking him down for the Whole Lotta Buzz, but Eye rolls forward! He boots Matton in the chest and then tries for the Eyes on the Prize, but Matton slips behind him! Both men stop and hold up their fingers very closely apart to say they could have ended it. The two lock up again and neither gets the advantage first until Eye goes behind and tries a School Boy, then an inside cradle for two! Matton gets a Sunset Flip moments later, then a Rolling Cradle across the mat that he calls Stumbling Around… but only a two! 

Matton tags Cassidy and one of DEFIANCE’s rising stars gets in and hits a shoulder to Dex Joy, but he doesn’t budge. Dex smiles and asks for Pat to bring it and he does. He hit a second… then a third… and a fourth shoulder! But Dex is on his feet. He tries to tackle Big Dex Energy one more time, but he rocks him with one of his own and hits a Shoulder Block, then a Seated Senton! The move only gets a two-count but nown Dex and Eye are in control. 

Dex holds Black Out so Eye can climb up top and hit a Double Axe Handle! Cassidy gets worked with a Running Forearm in the corner and then a Fisherman’s Suplex from the former BRAZEN Champion for two! 

Eye has him measured up for The Starry-Eyed Surprise but Cassidy shows off great strength then catches him before dumping on the mat! Cassidy tags Matton and the two work a big double-team where Cassidy hits a running kick to the back, then Matton connects with A Little Bit Of Buzz! The combo only gets two, but Matton stays on him with a Chinlock!

He works over Eye again and the crowd is looking for any sign of a tapout, but Eye shakes his head frantically. He tries to fight his way back to his feet and gets some elbows to Matton, but when he does, Matton comes back with the Battering Ram Headbutt to the gut! Eye gets doubled over and Matton scores another two-count! 

Cassidy back in and both alcohol aficionados send him to the ropes to hit a Double Flapjack for yet another two! Cassidy tries to take him down and then goes for an Alabama Slam, but Eye boxes his midsection to get him to let go! The two trade shots in the middle of the ring with Cassidy getting the better of the King of the Crushed Velvet. He then tries for The Irish Goodbye when they fight near the ropes, but Dex grabs his partner’s arm to save him, then he goes crashing to the mat, allowing Eye to follow up with a Full Nelson Slam!

Both men are down and go to their corners…

Tag by Matton! 

AND TAG BY THE BIGGEST BOY!

Dex rushes right into the ring and then knocks Matton down with a pair of Clotheslines, a big Standing Side Slam, and then a Running Elbow Drop off the ropes that knocks the air out of him! Dex feeds off the crowd, then Big Dex Energy drags Matton up for a Black Hole Slam! 

ONE!

TWO!

SAVED BY CASSIDY!

Cassidy wills Matton back to his feet and the two try to whip Dex to the ropes! They both try a Double Clothesline, but he breaks through, only to surprise BOTH men with his Shotgun Dropkick! 

Big Dex Energy takes Matton up…

DEX DRIVE!

Dex holds him while Eye tries to keep the groggy Cassidy from saving his drinking buddy!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

WINNERS: The Biggest Best Boys! @ 17:54 (Dex Joy over Matton, Dex Drive)

Lance:
What a match that was! Both teams came ready to play, but The Biggest Best Boys wanted it just a little more! 

DDK:
Both teams have already shown great synergy tonight and we’ve seen Joy and Eye team before a couple times on DEFtv. I think this won’t be the last we see of either team, especially Team No Chaser!

Dex helps Matton to his feet and shakes his hand while Eye and Cassidy do the same. Cassidy points at both guys and makes a drinking motion, with Eye responding that if they win, drinks are on him. 

DDK:
What a party that could be! I don’t think the $75,000 cash prize could be enough to even pay for that tab, though!

Lance:
The Biggest Best Boys! Now move on along with Team Shut Up and Hit ‘em. Now, we’re down to Rag$ to Riche$ and The Boy Scout Brigade OR The World’s Second Nicest Tag Team! And remember, Mikey Unlikely and David Hightower are still relatively fresh for this.

TAG PARTY II! BLOCK C FINALS MATCH

Mikey Unlikely’s path to the Block C finals is easy peasy, or so he would tell you. Impious Pyre” by Savage Souls plays next and the FIST of DEFIANCE, Mikey Unlikely comes out with his BRAZEN patrner, redneck muscle David Hightower… and now Perfection! After literally buying his way past round one, he was looking good.

Scott Douglas and Levi Cole arrived to the tunes, this time of "Born In The USA" by Bruce Springsteen and the crowd greeted both with a hero's welcome to oppose Mikey Unlikely and company. Scott Douglas's battles with Unlikely over the SoHer were considered legendary among the Faithful and tonight would be another chapter in their fights.

Block C was last match before the TAG PARTY II main event and it would be a good one!

Scott Douglas wants Mikey, but the FIST gives him David Hightower while he and Perfection share a laugh. Scott tries to fight off the massive Hightower, but he simply shoves Scott back. Sup Pop gets back on his feet and tries again, but second verse, same as the first. He gets back up, but Hightower isn’t budging. He tries to hit a series of forearms, but David takes those and then drives Scott down with a big Body Slam! He tries a knee drop, but Scott moves! Then he finally has his chance and floors Hightower with a Basement Dropkick! Scott tags Cole and then he points to the top rope. Douglas heads up top then Levi LAUNCHES him off the top, right into Hightower, Rocket Launcher-style!

Douglas leaves the ring, then Cole subdues him with a Gator Roll trying to get the tapout, but Mikey comes to the rescue of his charge and hits an elbow to Levi Cole! That frees him up so Hightower can hit Dropping The Hammer, a SICK Polish Hammer to the chest! Cole is down and…

NOW the champ wants in!

He comes in and peppers the larger Cole with slaps to the back of the amateur standout’s head, but playing around too much leads to Cole suddenly grabbing Mikey and hooking him for a Double Leg for two. Mikey scrambles out and then catches Cole under the chin with a Superkick! He gets angry and starts stomping away at the big former collegiate wrestler and hurls insults his way. Mikey tags David and tells him not screw this up before he nods and then runs right through Levi with a deadly Lariat! Shockingly, Levi kicks out, but he’s not happy. 

Douglas watches the kid get picked apart by Hightower and Mikey for the next couple of moments. Mikey puts the boots to him, then David comes in and hits a Running Leg Drop, then Running Knee Drop in that order. Hightower tags Mikey and then he catapults Levi into a punch from Mikey on the ring apron, then he leaps over the ropes to hit a Slingshot Elbow Drop! Mikey thinks he has Cole down now…

ROLL CR…

But Cole STILL finds a way to power out, then surprises Mikey with a T-Bone Suplex!

Cole is hurt, but he gets over to his partner…

TAG BY DOUGLAS!

And Dougas goes up top again, catching Mikey with a Moonsault Body Block off the top for a LONG two-count!

Scott rushes over and hits a Corner Springboard Dropkick to David Hightower, knocking him off the ring apron! He then turns back to Mikey and then PLANTS him with the Cobra Clutch Bulldog for another two! He looks for the Sub Pop Suplex, but Mikey frantically fights his way out, then spins Scott around to connect with the Double Knee Backbreaker, for a big two-count of his own! 

Mikey tries for the Roll Credits on Scott, but he slips out and Cole tags in. He runs in and trucks right over Mikey with a Shoulder Tackle, and then tries the Gutwrench… but Perfection leaps onto the apron and saves him! Douglas has seen enough and hits a Suicide Dive through the ropes to take out Perfection! 

But they don’t see Hightower CRACK Cole over the head with his chain! The crowd jeers as Mikey smiles and hooks Cole by the neck to FINALLY hit Roll Credits!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

WINNERS: Rag$ To Riche$ @ 9:22 (Unlikely over Cole, Roll Credits)

DDK:
And there he goes again! We’ve seen Mikey Unlikely literally buy and steal his way to the finals of TAG PARTY II!

Lance:
Wouldn’t have expected anything less from the guy! Scott’s now coming in to help Cole, but Mikey and company are already back up the ramp!

Mikey Unlikely has the FIST over his shoulder while David Hightower is helping Perfection up after getting attacked by Scott Douglas. Douglas kicks the ropes in frustration, then goes over to help Cole back up.  

DDK:
We’ll be taking a quick look back at the results of this match to give the fans a quick intermission… then it’s on to the TAG PARTY II finals! 

Lance:
That’s right! Three-way Elimination Tag Team match! The winner becomes this year’s TAG PARTY II champions along with winning a $75,000 cash prize! Stay tuned after this extended break! 

TAG PARTY II! FINALS: BLOCK A WINNER VS. BLOCK B WINNER VS. BLOCK C WINNER

AFTER A TEN-MINUTE BREAK SHOWING REPLAYS AND HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EVENING’S MATCHES, WE GO BACK TO THE COMMENTATION STATION FOR THE FINALE

DDK:
It has come down to this, Lance! Three teams made up of BRAZEN and DEFIANCE stars! Team Shut up and Hit ‘Em, comprised of “Queen of the Ring” Lindsay Troy and Declan “DEC4L” Alexander. The Biggest Best Boys! “The Biggest Boy” Dex Joy and Nathaniel Eye! Rag$ to Riche$! FIST of DEFIANCE Mikey Unlikely and David Hightower! One of these teams is walking out of here with those trophies and the $75,000 cash prize!

Lance:
Indeed! We’re going to the ring for the final time this evening! Let’s get to it!

Once more this evening, we get “Legendary” by 7kingZ playing next. “Queen of the Ring” Lindsay Troy and her BRAZEN partner, Declan “DEC4L” Alexander definitely look ready for what’s to come. They both hit the ring quickly and they look ready after a technical scrap with Team Rhyming Names are Cool and a quick, but impactful battle with Flex in a Box. 

“Go Big or Go Home” by Chuxx Morris plays next and out comes “The Biggest Boy” Dex Joy, followed shortly behind by the recently become former BRAZEN Champion Nathaniel Eye! The two best friends dap fists a third time tonight and they look ready. They look over to Troy and Alexander and shake hands before they await the straw that’s about to stir the drink called TAG PARTY II…

“Impious Pyre” by Savage Souls plays next and the FIST of DEFIANCE, Mikey Unlikely comes out with his BRAZEN partner, redneck muscle David Hightower… and of course, Perfection! After literally buying his way past round one and stealing Block C from Scott Douglas and Levi Cole, he was feeling pretty good. 

All three teams were set for the big match to come. It would be two people in the ring at all times, with anybody being able to tag anybody. Mikey and Lindsay Troy were the legal people. 

DING DING DING!

…but naturally, Mikey was going to poo-poo on that and try to tag Hightower, but instead, Troy has seen enough and rushes over to throw Mikey with a huge German Suplex!

Mikey doesn’t see it coming, nor does he see the Dropkick by Troy knocking him out of the ring!

And if that weren’t bad enough, he DEFINITELY doesn’t see the Corkscrew Plancha by The Lady of the Hour, taking him out on the floor!

The crowd cheers on Troy heavily as she throws Mikey back into the ring and then hits a Slingshot Sento for a quick count! Dex wants him some and she’s happy to oblige. Troy throws Mikey into Dex, who catches him with a Spinning Belly to Belly Suplex! Dex tries to cover Mikey, but only gets two. 

Dex tags Eye and things get worse for the mouthy FIST as Dex throws him over with a Back Body Drop, then Eye comes out of nowhere hitting a Dropkick! He covers, but now David Hightower has seen enough and breaks it up! Eye fights with Hightower and Hightower tosses him from the ring, but a Double Dropkick from Troy and Alexander sends him to the outside! That’s when Dex gets ready…

WHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAA-PE!

Dex SAILS through the ropes with the grace of a couch that has learned to fly and takes out David Hightower on the floor!

But that gives Mikey the chance to nail Nathaniel Eye from behind with a Jumping Neckbreaker! Now in control once again, everybody else is sequestered to their corner, Mikey boots away at Eye and then contiues doing so until he plants him with a big DDT!

He gets one… and two… but Dex BARELY saves his buddy in the nick of time, saving their chances.

Troy and Alexander are in their corner watching the dissection of Nathaniel Eye continue as Mikey stomps away at his back! Everybody has gone through a wringer in some form tonight, but it gets worse when David Hightower tags in. He hits a STIFF Pendulum Backbreaker on Eye and gets a two-count, but now Mikey wants in. He tags in, then tries to go for The Backstory on Eye… but he scurries and just barely makes the ropes! But doesn't stop Mikey from pulling him back and stomping away some more!

Mikey directs Hightower to end it and then he goes up top looking for the West Memphis Avalanche, but before he can stick the drop, Eye shoots up and lands a massive Pop Up Superplex that rattles the ring!

The crowd is LOUD and cheering on the action now as both men lay prone on the mat with no signs of moving. When neither moves, the referee starts the count. 

One… two… three… four… five!

Hightower starts moving slowly with Mikey and Perfection both yelling like lunatics for their muscle to get back up. 

Six… seven… eight!

Eye is up next!

Nine!

And both men barely make it to their feet when Eye comes out of nowhere and blasts Hightower with The Starry-Eyed Surprise! The Flying Knee Strike connects, but when he rolls, it’s Declan getting the tag, then wailing away at the massive redneck with Knife-Edge Chops! He continues striking and Hightower doesn’t look like he’s in much of a position, especially when Declan yells out “YEET~!” and manages to toss David up and then back down! He covers…

ONE!

TWO

SAVED BY MIKEY! 

Troy leaps into the ring and tries to throw Mikey out, but he reverses and sends the Queen out of the ring. He leaves himself open for Declan to toss him, but Mikey hits the apron and Perfection goes over to snap the head of Declan while the official doesn’t see it!! Hightower hits a desperation Spear on Declan! Mikey then gets the tag and then rolls up Declan from behind… hook of the tights!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

The crowd JEERS! Team Shut Up And Hit ‘Em! Have just been eliminated!

Perfection looks on with a sly grin that he just helped Mikey again… but not so sly when Lindsay Troy has a chair! Perfection sees her heading his way and then bails through the crowd with Troy chasing him off! She makes sure that Witherhold is gone, then goes to check on her protege on the outside, hurt and pissed off that he fell for something, but a kid that should absolutely be proud of his performance. 

It was down to Rag$ and Riche$ vs. The Biggest Best Boys. Eye was still hurt from the attacks on the floor and Dex was alone with Mikey as the crowd cheered them on. 

“BIGGEST BEST BOYS!” Clap x5
BIGGEST BEST BOYS!” Clap x5
BIGGEST BEST BOYS!” Clap x5
BIGGEST BEST BOYS!” Clap x5
BIGGEST BEST BOYS!” Clap x5"

Joy hears the chants and makes a beeline for Mikey, but the FIST rakes his eyes and then wails away on the bigger man with right hands! He tries to get Dex to budge with an Irish whip, but he doesn’t. He grins, then whips Mikey across the ring to the corner. Dex charges in, but Mikey gets both feet up and catches Dex in the face. Mikey heads up top and then takes flight with a Crossbody…

But Dex catches him! 

He tries for the Dex Drive, but Mikey frantically kicks until Dex lets go and then tags Hightower…

ANOTHER SPEAR BY HIGHTOWER! 

Dex doesn’t see it coming and gets leveled! Then Hightower goes for the win!

ONE!

TWO!

TH… NO!

Troy and Alexander are still at ringside watching the final two teams battle while Dex is holding his ribs. Hightower goes up top…

WEST MEMPHIS AVALANCHE!

He hits the Diving Knee Drop on Dex!

ONE!

TWO!

THRE… ANOTHER KICKOUT BY DEX!

Mikey can’t believe it and he yells obscenities at the official that was the three-count, but he only holds up two fingers! Hightower grits his teeth and then tries to hoist Dex for what looks like a Powerbomb, but Dex unleashes a roar and then snaps him over with a Back Body Drop, then KILLS Hightower with a Crossbody of his own! Dex holds his ribs in pain, but he’s back up…

DEXY’S MIDNIGHT RUNNER TO HIGHTOWER! 

The crowd goes crazy as Mikey tries to come in, but Nathaniel Eye grabs his leg! He kicks the former BRAZEN Champ away…

DEXY’S MIDNIGHT RUNNER TO MIKEY!

Mikey gets POUNCED right off the apron and crashing right into the guardrail! Even Troy and Alexadner watching from ringside look damn amazed!

Dex lets out a roar and then has Hightower in the corner…

JUMP FOR JOY!

The crowd counts along with Dex as he pulls Hightower out of the corner!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

WINNERS: The Biggest Best Boys! @ 20:08 (Dex over Hightower, last eliminating the team, Jump For Joy)

Inside the ring, Nathaniel Eye runs and hugs his best friend and the two celebrate as the crowd gives them a tremendous pop! Dex and Nathaniel get handed the trophies and representatives from Favoured Saints reward both men with the $75,000 check!

Troy and Alexander both limp their way back into the ring and both greet Joy and Eye with handshakes. Soon, a few other teams make their way out including Oscar Burns and George Othello, along with Patrick Cassidy and Doug Matton! The goody-goods all celebrate cause that's what they all do, of course! 

Dex Joy and Nathaniel Eye both thanked the fans for coming out for this special show, telling them that right now, they were the future of both the DEFIANCE and BRAZEN brands and they will be proud to keep kicking asses for years to come… pally!

DDK:
What a show, Lance! Tonight, it was Dex Joy and Nathaniel Eye that won TAG PARTY II, but we cannot forget about other future stars we've seen tonight! The future of DEFIANCE and BRAZEN is shining brightly!
