EPW INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE GRUDGE MATCH: Impulse (c) vs. Stalker
DM: It’s been a busy night for Impulse already tonight. He successfully defended the Intercontinental Title earlier against Jared Wells, but this second match will be a different ballgame altogether.
MN: I highly doubt this match ends by way of inside cradle.
DT: I tend to agree.
MN: You can’t get this kind of expert analysis just anywhere.
DM: I think I could get it pretty much anywhere actually.
MN: I could get your mom pretty much anywhere.
DT: The cage has been lowered guys, and we’re ready to go!
[SFX: DING DING DING!]
TF: This contest is a steel cage match for the Empire Pro Wrestling… INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP!
DM: That’s what it’s all about, Dave.
MN: It’s all about hubris, Dean. Simple pride, and Knox is about to learn that when you’re arrogant enough to wrestle two matches against two top athletes in one night, there’s nowhere to go but down.
TF: This match has a sixty minute time limit, and there is no disqualification. The winner of this match will be the wrestler who escapes the cage, either through the door or over the top – or the wrestler who obtains a pinfall or submission victory.
DT: Impulse is not suffering from hubris, Neely! He agreed to team with Stalker against the Dangle Brothers in return for finally receiving a match with Stalker, and EPW owner Dan Ryan promised a title shot to Jared Wells if the Dangle Brothers won that match. I think it’s a credit to his honoring his commitments that he agreed to both matches.
MN: He just thinks he’s better than everyone else.
DM: I’m not one to ever agree with Mike Neely, but ‘Pulse is defending his title twice on an EPW Pay Per View: one of the biggest venues a wrestler can hope to reach. While I think he’s to be admired for sticking to his commitments and making sure the fans see the matches that were advertised, I think he’s bitten off more than he can chew tonight and we’ll see a new Intercontinental Champion.
MN: If you said that an hour ago you’d have been brave. Now you’re just a follower.
TF: Introducing first… from Seattle, Washington…
[SFX: Heavy boos.]
Weighing in at two hundred and twenty four pounds… this is the challenger…
[SFX: Even more boos.]
THIS…. IS… STAAAAAAAAAAAAAALKEEEERRRRRRRRR!!!!!
DT: There is no love lost amongst these fans for Jason Reeves. This has to be part of his endgame, and the look on his face tells the tale: he’s enjoying every minute of it.
DM: He’s been stirring the pot in EPW for months now, he’s been weaseling his way inside Impulse’s head for reasons we can’t even begin to understand, and there’s been some chatter that he intentionally threw the tag match with the Dangle Brothers to force Impulse to wrestle twice tonight.
MN: He’s a genius.
DT: Stalker is not a genius, but he certainly is what Impulse referred to as a Machiavellian Madman, and while I’m not convinced that his anger – fueled tirade in Dan Ryan’s office was anything but legitimate, it’s certainly in his nature to spent the past few weeks planning this out. Not only does he get Impulse, a legitimate wrestler and one of the few in professional wrestling today who doesn’t seem to have a selfish streak, to fight a war with the Dangle Brothers on his behalf, but he gets himself a shot at the Intercontinental Championship against an opponent not at his best, with a banked shot at the big belt all lined up.
MN: Everything is falling into place.
TF: AND HIS OPPONENT…
[SFX: Loud cheers.]
TF: From Washington Heights, New York… weighing in at one hundred and eighty eight pounds… He is The Marathon Man… He is… your… UNDEFEATED… EMPIRE PRO WRESTLING… INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION…
MN: He’s on an ego trip!
TF: THIS… IS… IMMMMMMMMPULSE!
MN: The nerve of this man.
MN: He’s having an affair with Caitlyn Daymon, and not only can’t he be bothered to hide it from his chick sitting there in the second row, but he doesn’t even let Caitlyn get announced with him.
DT: He is not!
MN: Then why is Caitlyn Daymon following him?
[CUTTO: The entranceway, where Caitlyn Daymon is in fact following Impulse to the ring. She is several steps behind him and trying to catch up, which would indicate that he either didn’t know she was coming with him or didn’t care.]
DM: My guess, Mike? She wants to see Impulse beat Stalker?
DT: That’s something we all want to see.
DM: Well, may the best man win.
MN: Et tu, Matthews?
DM: Knowing Stalker, whether he wins or loses he’ll take everything negative we say about him tonight and use it as justification to murder our pets in three years.
MN: That’s why I never say anything negative about anyone crazier than myself.
DT: Impulse with another quick greeting for Calico Rose, she does look like she’s fully recovered from her ordeal.
MN: Milking an injury is shameful.
DT: I would say Impulse was smart to keep her away from EPW until his business with Stalker was complete. It would be a shame if she came back only to get hurt again.
DM: Look at Stalker in there, he’s not even moving. He does play the games, but this is the payoff. This is the moment, and we’ve seen it before, where his plans all coalesce. He’ll play this one straight.
DT: Impulse hands off the title belt and the door is closed – we’re official.
[SFX: DING DING DING]
MN: NOW we’re official.
DT: The referee is giving them some last minute instruction, but I think we know what’s going to happen here. Match can be won by pinfall, submission, or cage escape.
DM: Impulse showed us last year that he doesn’t believe in the cage escape, so you know he’ll be fighting for a pinfall. I’d say he might even be looking for a submission here just to prove a point.
DT: And Stalker?
DM: I think Stalker would be looking for the pinfall, too. He’d be happy, I think, with any kind of victory, but much like Impulse, Stalker wants to send a message.
MN: ‘Put away your milk and cookies, Knox – it’s time for the big boys to play.’
DT: You’re hopeless.
MN: Talk louder, Impulse couldn’t hear you.
DT: These men are circling each other, and the tension is palpable.
DM: Both men are known for their psychological game, and I don’t think either of them want to make the first move.
DT: But you can sure hear these fans, they’re cheering for Impulse!
MN: Front runners.
DT: I think they’re getting under Stalker’s skin, you can see his gaze shift left to right. Ooooh boy, he looks angry.
DM: As much as he’s his own man, he’s got to be rattled with all of this support against him.
DT: Stalker pointing at Impulse and shouting at him – He just shrugged his shoulders to a huge ovation!
DM: As intense as Knox can get, he’s still got a sense of humor.
MN: Stalker doesn’t.
DT: No, he doesn’t. Right hand by Stalker! Impulse ducked out of the way! Another wild swing, Impulse hooked his arm and neck, he’s got Stalker locked in a modified crossface! Stalker backed him into the cage! Elbow to the head! Spin around, and a right hand – IMPULSE DUCKED! Stalker bounced his hand off the cage!
DM: If he hit that cage hard enough, he could’ve broken his hand. That would certainly change the course of this match.
DT: Impulse with a forearm to the back! And another! Hook by the waist, and a rollup! ONE… TWO… Kickout by Stalker, he just sent Impulse into the ropes!
MN: And cage!
DT: No, Impulse managed to stop himself against the ropes – STALKER JUST SHOVED HIM FORWARD!
MN: That’s the danger of such an early pinfall attempt, your opponent has plenty of energy to keep on truckin’.
DT: Impulse’s head bounced against the cage, and Stalker fires right hands that hit the mark! Impulse trying to keep his hands up, but he’s just getting pounded down! Stalker with some kicks, and the Marathon Man is falling fast! Remember, this is his second match tonight!
MN: You think you can do everything, you end up eating canvas.
DM: Still far-reaching with your blanket accusations, but you do have a point. Impulse isn’t at his best right now, and he really needs to remember to back off and play defense if he wants to get out of this with his belt.
MN: I’d say ‘getting off the mat’ should be his current priority.
DT: Stalker with a hook around the waist of his own, and a belly to back suplex just knocked the Intercontinental Champion for a loop! Reeves rolls to his stomach and knees – oh, he just locked eyes with Caitlyn Daymon.
DM: This could be his Achilles heel, Dave. Impulse has expressed his desire to beat Stalker for his own reasons as well as for Caitlyn’s, but he’s done his best to keep himself focused on his own path. Reeves, on the other hand, has taken a singular delight in tormenting Caitlyn, and if he shifts his focus, he could pay for it.
MN: Like maybe with a taser?
DT: Stalker moved toward Caitlyn, even with a cage between them, she’s pulled a taser from one of her pockets, and she’s got him dead locked between the eyes!
DM: Whether she’s intending to fire or not, she’s giving Impulse a chance to recover. He’s on one knee, and he’s got Stalker in his sights.
MN: Coward, always attacking from behind.
DT: He never does that.
MN: There’s a first time for everything!
DT: Impulse holding onto the ropes, he’s pulled back like a bowstring! He’s not the type to attack a man from behind, but he’s moving back and forth – he’s shaking like he’s barely held back.
DM: All he needs is for Stalker to turn around.
DT: CLOTHESLINE FROM IMPULSE! Stalker took the full force of his forearm across the neck, and Stalker hits the mat! He’s up, and Impulse with a kick to the stomach! Gut-wrench suplex! Impulse with a scoop, and a bodyslam just put Stalker back down again!
MN: That succubus just cost Stalker the match!
DT: Impulse measuring his opponent… he’s off the ropes, and a legdrop across the chest knocked the wind out of Stalker!
MN: Is he arrogant enough to try for a pinfall?
DT: I don’t think so. He’s got Stalker hooked already.
DM: Impulse needs to be careful here. A lot of his attack strategy is based off the ropes and using them in creative ways. He’s been cut off from that in this match.
DT: Speaking of which, there he goes with an Irish Whip. Stalker off on the rebound, and a drop toe hold into a side headlock! Impulse is holding on tightly, forcing Stalker to carry his weight and keep his neck in an uncomfortable position.
DM: No, this is smart strategy. Impulse has shown his comfort with wrestling both a breakneck speed and a much slower, much more methodical pace. His best strategy has always been those matches where he changes it up to keep his opponent off balance. But I think he needs to conserve the energy that he’s got left for this second match.
DT: Stalker pushes back to his knees, Impulse still trying to pull him forward. This has to be a struggle for Stalker. He needs to get his weight back under him to break the hold, but at the same time, Impulse’s leverage is forward. Tricky situation.
MN: He’ll figure it out. Stalker’s just the man to teach Knox some humility.
DT: Stalker just pushed forward! He landed back on the mat on his stomach, but he managed to send Impulse into the ropes and cage! The hold just broke, and Stalker bounded away!
DM: There’s nothing between him and the door.
DT: He’s got enough energy, he could probably make it. Impulse shaking off the impact of his head grazing the cage – STALKER WITH A CURBSTOMP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!
MN: He might’ve made it out the door, but it’s not about that.
DM: It’s about sending a message. And I think that might cost Stalker in the end, if Impulse can turn this match back around.
DT: The fans are on their feet, cheering for the Marathon Man, but Stalker with another curbstomp! Scoop and a hook of the head, and Stalker with a suplex into the cage! Impulse hit hard and just landed on his neck and shoulders!
MN: You say Stalker wants to prove a point? I think he’s pretty well proving it.
DM: There wasn’t any of Impulse’s usual confidence in this one, not like his match with Jared Wells earlier: so far Stalker has proven that he may very well be the man who has his number.
DT: Stalker with another scoop, and he flings Impulse into the cage! IMPULSE GOT HIS HANDS UP! He held onto the cage as Stalker tossed him and swiped backwards with both feet, he caught Stalker square in the face with those kicks!
DM: But while Stalker’s head snaps back and he crumbles, Knox just dropped down holding his hands. Good gambit on his part to stop Stalker’s momentum, but if Impulse just damaged the fingers on both hands, he might not be able to mount a successful offense or
DT: Impulse hooks Stalker around the neck and arm, T-Bone suplex!
MN: What a faker!
DM: Take a look, Mike – he hooked him with his wrists. Improvisation works.
DT: Stalker rising, Impulse with a kick to the midsection! Forearm to the back of the head, and a kneelift! Cover, ONE… TWO… KICKOUT by Stalker!
DM: Impulse has had much more defense than offense so far in this match, but I think he’s done an admirable job of keeping himself in the running.
DT: In the running? Impulse has Stalker measured, and I think he’s looking to finish it off right here! Stalker just has his bell rung, I think it’s the perfect opportunity for Impulse to hit him with the kick and make his point.
MN: Never happen.
DM: Stalker’s getting up, with his back to Knox. It might be time.
DT: SUDDEN IMPACT—
MN: HAH! HAHAHAHAHAHAH!
DT: STALKER WITH A LOW BLOW! Impulse lost his balance and collapsed to the mat! Stalker recovers quickly, and he lands a DDT! Cover, ONE… TWO… Stalker backs off!
DM: That’ll cost him.
MN: Nope! He’s in complete control.
DM: I have a feeling he’s going to wish he’d gotten the win when he could’ve.
DT: Stalker with a scoop, and a whip into the corner! He’s following, just a step behind, and Impulse hits the corner chest – first! Stalker with a clothesline to the back of the head, and Impulse takes a second hit to the sternum! He’s slumped against the middle turnbuckle, and he’s breathing very heavily!
DM: Wisely, I think, Stalker is walking toward the door. Impulse is trying to get himself together, and Stalker could very easily get the win here with less than an effort.
MN: Not if that bitch doesn’t get outta the way!
DT: Caitlyn has that taser in her hand again! She’s blocking the way for Stalker’s escape!
MN: But he’s also laughing at her. Does she really have control?
DT: Stalker just blew her a kiss, and he turned around to return to the ring. Impulse is on his feet, but he’s holding onto the corner, still pulling himself together.
DM: Maybe it isn’t wise to turn his attention away from Stalker for as long as he has, but it’s simple human nature – Stalker hasn’t attacked him, so he’s been taking as much of a breather as he can.
DT: Break time is over, as Stalker grabs him by the head on either side, and he drops him to the mat, cracking the back of his head off the canvas! Impulse rolls onto his side, his hand pressed into his forehead, and he’s kicking the mat in frustration.
DM: Stalker has pretty much eschewed technical skill, he’s just punching Impulse in the face now.
DT: Wasn’t that always the extent of his match related skill?
MN: You’re just a hater.
DT: Another scoop, and Stalker with a front faceslam! Another kick to the head!
DM: Stalker’s abandoned all pretext of strategy, he’s just beating Impulse in the head. On one hand, it’ll keep him dazed and disoriented, and on the other, the disorientation will keep Impulse from being able to counter.
DT: Stalker with another scoop, and a kick to the midsection! Powerbomb! These fans are booing as hard as they can, they want Impulse to overcome the odds one more time.
MN: They can wish into one hand and crap into another…
MN: Have another burger.
DM: Stalker’s not taking any chances. He’s got Knox in a double underhook…
DT: Modified piledriver! Stalker just dropped Impulse on his head, and he’s gesturing that it’s over!
MN: It could very well be.
DT: Cover! ONE… TWO… THKICKOUT!
MN: He’s not done punishing the idiot.
DM: No, that was a legitimate kickout. Knox isn’t done yet.
DT: He’s had a long night, it could be the beginning of the end. Stalker with another piledriver! No cover this time, he’s pacing, soaking up the boos.
MN: Impulse isn’t moving, other than his hands to his face. I think he’s finally realizing that he’s bit off more than he can chew.
DT: Stalker drags Impulse to the middle of the ring, and a kick to the side! Impulse to the fetal position! Another kick! Scoop, and an irish whip into the ropes… Fist to the midsection doubles Impulse over, and he drops to his knees!
DM: This might be a good time to try and escape the cage.
MN: Over the top, though. Crazy bitch is still guarding the door.
DT: I think you have a point there – but Stalker with another scoop! Right hand – IMPULSE PUSHED HIS HAND AWAY! HEADBUTT! BOTH MEN DOWN!
DM: Did you see the blood spurt from Stalker’s face?
DT: He could have a broken nose, and that might be all it takes for this to turn itself around!
MN: How? Both men are down!
DT: Stalker is rolling on the mat, holding his nose in pain, while Impulse staggered backwards after the force of the blow, and he’s against the bottom rope, his eyes are closed tightly. The referee is pacing, I don’t know if he knows whether or not to count!
DM: In a normal match, of course, a ten count would end it as a draw, but this is specifically no countouts, and no disqualification.
MN: Just give it to Stalker, he’s gushing from the nose, he’s earned it!
DT: Both men are slowly recovering, and the crowd is getting deafening! They’re all cheering for the current reigning Intercontinental Champion, and he’s starting to respond!
DM: I think we can see the night has worn on Impulse. Usually, he gets his second wind with a nip – up, but he’s dragging himself to his feet on the ropes. First, the match with Jared Wells and now, Stalker’s repeated bouncing of his head off everything under the sun, his tank might finally be running on fumes.
DT: Stalker is getting to his feet too, gushing from the nose! He’s definitely got a broken nose, and he’s unsteady. Right hand by Stalker – ducked by Impulse!
DM: I can tell you from personal experience – you take a shot like that that breaks your nose, you see stars, your vision blanks out, and you get completely disoriented.
DT: Another fist from Stalker! Impulse grabbed his wrist and twisted him around with his other arm! Hook of the head with one fluid motion, and a reverse DDT!
MN: Still no sudden second wind from the Golden Boy. He still can’t get a concrete advantage.
DT: Impulse with an arm over Stalker’s chest! ONE… TWO… Kickout by Stalker!
DM: Now this is interesting, they’re rolling in opposite directions. Impulse is commando – crawling to the ropes, while Stalker is already on his knees.
MN: And he’s finally gotten smart! Stalker climbing the cage!
DT: It’s not like he can go out the door!
DM: So it’s a race. Stalker and Impulse climbing connecting sides, who’s going to make out first?
MN: Stalker. Impulse is an idiot. His little mistress is guarding the door, he could just as easily go out that way.
DT: Impulse is on his feet, Stalker is on the top rope! He’s got both hands on the top of the cage, and he’s ready to pull himself over!
DM: So now it’s a race.
DT: The fans are solidly behind Impulse, and he’s climbed to the top rope! IMPULSE WITH THREE QUICK STEPS ACROSS THE TOP ROPE! DROPKICK TO STALKER! STALKER LOST HIS BALANCE! BOTH MEN CRASH TO THE MAT!
DM: Not exactly!
DT: Both men crashed to the mat, but Impulse landed on his feet! Stalker got hung up in the ropes, and his arm wrenched! Impulse moving toward the door!
DM: I’m surprised. I thought he’d go for the pin.
MN: He’s a coward.
DT: Impulse at the door, but he’s not moving to open it! Stalker is slowly getting up… I think he’s measured for the Sudden Impact! Impulse steadying himself on the cage… What is she doing?
MN: HAHAHAH! I LOVE IT!!
DT: CAITLYN DAYMON JUST SHOT IMPULSE WITH HER TASER!
DM: He was holding onto the steel cage at the time, he just completed a circuit, and Impulse collapsed!
DT: What the hell is she thinking? Stalker on unsteady legs, he just landed on Impulse and gestured to the very confused referee!
MN: No disqualification, baby!
DT: NO… NO… NO!
[SFX: DING DING DING!]
DT: That was a robbery!
DM: That was something, all right.
DT: Caitlyn Daymon just retrieved that Intercontinental title belt and opened the cage door, handing it to the still – dazed Stalker!
TF: The winner of this bout… and NEEEEEEEEEEW
… Empire Pro Wrestling Intercontinental Champion… STALKER!
DT: Stalker with the belt in his hands, he just spat blood in Impulse’s face while the referee is trying to help the former Champion to his feet… CALICO ROSE JUST TACKLED CAITLYN DAYMON! These fans have gone crazy while Rose lays a series of right hands into her face!
DM: Knox protected her, she’s protecting Knox, it’s what partners do.
DT: Stalker outside the ring now, he’s got Rose by the hair, pulling her off Caitlyn Daymon! Leave her alone!
MN: What do you always say, Burgerman? You get involved, you pay the price.
DT: IMPULSE JUST FLEW OUT OF THE RING! HE KNOCKED STALKER AWAY FROM ROSE! We’re going to see a rematch right here on the floor!
MN: Oh no we’re not!
DM: Security finally hits ringside, but Stalker has wisely grabbed Caitlyn Daymon and they’re making a hasty retreat, and Stalker rubbing it in by holding that belt high!
MN: Well what’s up with that? He lost the match!
DT: Impulse looks like he’s standing on will alone, Rose takes him by the side and helps him to the ramp, and he’s getting a standing ovation! You can bet Stalker and Caitlyn will have to pay for what just happened, sooner or later, but for the moment we have ourselves a new EPW Intercontinental Champion!
DM: And look at those two just walking up the aisle. I can’t believe Caitlyn Daymon, after all we’ve seen Stalker put her through…
[CUE UP: “ZERO” by Smashing Pumpkins.
Stalker and Caitlyn stop DEAD in their tracks.]
MN: Oh no….
DT: The owner of EPW is coming out here, Neely!!
[The crowd erupts as Dan Ryan steps out through the curtain, staring a hole in Stalker, who’s about halfway up the aisle.]
MN: Stalker won that belt fair and square! It was no disqualification!
DT: That’s quite true, but it looks like Dan Ryan has something to say anyway.
[Ryan begins a purposeful walk down the aisle, not even looking Stalker in the eye as he starts to pass him. At the last possible second, he reaches out and snatches the Intercontinental Title away and continues toward the ring. Stalker tries to follow, but Ryan waves a hand at the security near ringside and they rush to block him from getting back to the ring. Near the cage, Impulse is standing, being helped by Rose, and he and Ryan simply make eye contact. Ryan passes him as well and climbs through the cage door into the ring.]
MN: What right does he have to take the belt from Stalker like that?? This is his moment, dammit. He EARNED this!
DM: Maybe the boss disagrees.
MN: Well maybe I disagree with the boss!
DM: Well maybe you should go in there and tell him that.
MN: Maybe I’ll just stay here.
DM: Maybe you will.
[Ryan motions for a microphone and is handed one through the cage.]
DAN RYAN: After two long years of scratching, clawing, manipulating and scheming, I would like to congratulate Stalker on finally becoming the EPW Intercontinental Champion.
[Stalker, still struggling with security seethes in the aisle, staring the owner down.]
DAN RYAN: Last week, I came to a decision concerning Stalker. He’s threatened me with legal action, threatened me with his ‘iron clad’ contract stipulations and, in general, made everyone’s life a living hell. Then I thought, why announce my decision in a simple press release, when I can do it here, now, at Black Dawn?
MN: Where is he going with this…?
DAN RYAN: And just now, with Stalker winning the Intercontinental Championship…. [Ryan holds the belt up] …this…. Intercontinental Championship…. I realize that the time is right. I’m ready to make my decision public.
[Stalker has stopped struggling and is now listening intently, Caitlyn by his side. Impulse, by now has regained his own footing at the barricade near the ring and is listening as well.]
DAN RYAN: I had some options, of course. I can’t just fire you, can I? You do have a contract. You did negotiate a buy out clause. And, of course, you are my Intercontinental Champion. If I fired you, I’d be sued nine ways to Sunday over the ordeal. I know you’re the litigious type.
[CUT TO: Stalker, who smiles]
DAN RYAN: On the other hand, my wife is an attorney.
[The smile fades.....]
DAN RYAN: So, it’s very likely any lawsuit would be wrapped up in the court system for months and months and months.
[…replaced by a scowl.]
DAN RYAN: Also, I realized something else, Stalker… err… Jason. I realized….. I…. DON’T CARE.
[HUGE crowd pop]
DAN RYAN: Effective immediately, I hereby strip Jason Reeves, also known as Stalker, of the EPW Intercontinental Title….
[ROARING FAN APPROVAL – a shot of Stalker shows him LIVID and fighting to get through security.]
DAN RYAN: And since I’m quite certain a man of Impulse’s strict ethical character wouldn’t want a championship simply handed to him….
[Ryan glances at Impulse, who nods in agreement back at him.]
DAN RYAN: …I will announce on Aggression 68 the manner by which we will determine a new champion. As for you, Stalker…. Jason? You, sir…. Well, you are fired.
[If the stadium had a roof, it would blow off right now, as Stalker goes apeshit. Caitlyn Daymon looks like she’s seen a ghost.]
DT: My God!! Dan Ryan just fired Stalker!! After all this!!
MN: He can’t do that!! He just won the championship!! HE JUST WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP!!
DT: Dan Ryan has fired Stalker, and Stalker is beside himself!! Upwards of twenty men are restraining him, and are now dragging him back up the ramp!
[Security staff literally drag a kicking and screaming Stalker up the aisle and through the curtain as the crowd goes nuts. Dan Ryan finally climbs through the cage door and starts up the aisle himself, giving a light slap on the back to Impulse as he passes he and Rose. Ryan starts past Caitlyn Daymon, who is still frozen in place, then pauses, and without looking back at her, speaks…]
DAN RYAN: Oh uh… Caitlyn? I didn’t forget the last year or so in your life either so, I’d like to see you in my office, sweetie. We have some things to talk about….. [Ryan looks over his shoulder and locks eyes with her] …NOW.
[Caitlyn Daymon’s head hangs as she starts to shuffle up the aisle behind the EPW owner.]
MN: And now he’s picking on poor Caitlyn Daymon?? Hasn’t she been through enough?
DM: Been through enough?? She was in league with Stalker this whole time! Are you kidding me?!
MN: Just because she tased Impulse and cost him the belt and was hugging Stalker after the match and was leaving with him after pretending to hate him for a year and faking a nervous breakdown and…. Oh.
DM: Yeah. Oh.
DT: What an amazing turn of events. Stalker wins the Intercontinental Title, Caitlyn Daymon HELPS him, then Dan Ryan strips Stalker of the belt, then Dan Ryan FIRES Stalker…. What else can happen tonight??
DM: We haven’t even gotten to the World Tag Team Title Match or the Main Event yet. We’re just getting warmed up!!
