W.A.R. Buried Alive

Grudge Match

Nero v Fireman Stan

Fans boo loudly as Nero enters and chant ‘You suck’, the fans cheer loudly as Fireman Stan enters. Stan dresses the ref up like a fireman, Nero sneaks in from behind and rolls him up (believing he is Stan) and Stan counts to two before the ref kicks out! Nero and Stan criss cross the ropes and Stan slides out of the ring, hilariously Nero keeps running. Stan re-enters the ring and points up (Nero looks up) so Stan slaps him across the face. Nero tries to repay the favour but is slapped once again. Fans chant “Stan, Stan, Stan”. Nero elbows Stan as he attempts a corner splash and follows that up with a vicious dropkick to Stan’s knee.

Stan looks injured!? Stan is helped to the back by the referees as he is unable to continue. Nero attacks Stan from behind and brings him back to the ring. Nero applies the spinning toe hold on Stan but Stan will not quit, Stan in desperation manages to hit a spine buster and both men are down. The ref starts the count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and both men are to their feet once more, Nero hit’s the incoming Stan with a double boot followed by a dropkick. Then he heads up the turnbuckle for a moon sault….Stan is able to move out of the way, Nero runs at Stan, Stan hit’s the Fireman Slam for the 1,2 and 3!

Winner: Fireman Stan

The Executioner & Red Tiger enter the ring, the Executioner attacks Stan. Fans direct ‘You suck’ chants at Tiger, Executioner hits his finishing move the choke bomb on Stan. He then takes the microphone “Shut the hell up” he tells the fans “I’ve never been pinned, no man can beat me!” Tiger opens the casket and W.A.R. Heavyweight Champion Louie Zerr comes out and attacks the Executioner. Fans chant “Louie, Louie”. Louie takes the microphone “I don’t have to pin you! I’ve got to shove you in that casket and shut the lid”.

Dante w/Roselyn v Wheeler

The ref takes Dante’s Singapore cane away, Wheeler seeing his opportunity hit’s a step up enzurguri. Dante retreats, Wheeler follows so Dante uses Roselyn as a shield and then sucker punches Wheeler (the fans boo loudly). Drop toe hold by Wheeler gets a two count, Roselyn gets up on the apron and distracts Wheeler, who walks right into a Sky High by Dante for a close near fall. Dante shows his sinister side by choking Wheeler when the ref isn’t looking. Back suplex by Dante on Wheeler, Dante picks him up and executes another but as he attempts a third Wheeler manages to reverse it into a bulldog. Both men are down the ref starts the count 1,2,3,4,5,6! Wheeler comes back once more with clotheslines, a flying head scissors and a chin breaker in quick succession, once again Roselyn distracts Wheeler. This time to no effect as Wheeler nails Dante with a code red for a long two count. Wheeler climbs the turnbuckle, Roselyn distracts Wheeler yet again. Dante is able to crotch Wheeler and quickly follows up with a Tower of London for the 3 count. “She’s a man” chants directed at Roselyn, Wheeler leaves with applause ringing in his ears.

Winner: Dante

B52 Lance Corporal v Jimmy Ocean

Ring announcer announces Corporal as “The man that puts the fun in confrontational”. Ref checks both men for illegal objects. “Jimmy, Jimmy” chants by the fans. Corporal offers Jimmy a handshake (Jimmy looks for the crowds approval) and then shakes Corporal’s hand, and gets sucker punched for his naivety. Ocean fires back with a series of forearms and a dropkick sending Corporal to the outside. High cross body by Ocean he then attempts to ram Corporal into the ring post (Corporal blocks), so does Ocean, Corporal goes shoulder first into the ring post. Ocean attempts another high cross body this time Corporal blocks and rams Ocean back first into the ring post. Fans chant “Jimmy” in unison. Ocean attempts a super kick Corporal reverses into a knee to the stomach for a two count, Corporal frustrated by his inability to put Ocean away starts using some underhand tactics unbeknownst to the referee.

Ocean is locked in a bear hug the referee raises his hand it drops twice but on the third time, Ocean rakes Corporal’s eyes and lands a DDT. “Jimmy, Jimmy” chants once more, Ocean follows that with a head scissors and boot into a hurracanrana on Corporal which sends him to the outside once more. Ocean soon follows with a slingshot press to the floor. Ocean attempts the super kick once more and again it is counted this time into a full nelson slam by Corporal. Corporal attempts a suplex from inside to outside of the ring Ocean manages to fend him off and runs towards the opposite ropes and sunset flip power bombs Corporal on the wooden floor! Ref leads a count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7! Both men return to the ring. Ocean goes up to the top rope for an axe handle Corporal counters that into his AA spine buster for the 1,2 and 3. Fans clap loudly as Ocean exit’s the ring.

Winner: Lance Corporal

4 man Ladder match for No1 contendership to W.A.R. Heavyweight Title
‘Old School’ Dan London v ’King of spin’ Spindoctor v Tank v ’Bird of prey’ Falcon

Tank and London shake hands as do Spindoctor and Falcon. All four men exit the ring straight away in search of a ladder. Spindoctor’s ladder catapult hits both London and Tank directly in the face, Falcon hits Tank with a monkey flip into the ladder. Falcon climbs the ladder but is shook off by London, flapjack on Spindoctor looks like it has dented the ring! Double flapjack on Falcon by London and Tank in exactly the same place (may not help matters). Falcon is thrown head first into a ladder, London attempts to do the same thing again (this time Falcon slides out of the ring) Spindoctor hits London and Tank with a top rope double dropkick. Van Terminator by Falcon into the ladder into London’s face, Falcon ascends the ladder but is shoulder blocked off by Tank. Spindoctor sets up a second ladder (all four men climb) and all four men fall just as quickly.

“Ginger Ninja” chants by the fans directed at Falcon. Falcon and Tank climb, Tank is pushed off by Falcon who is inches away from the W.A.R. Title shot contract, Falcon has other ideas though and proceeds with a Swanton bomb from the top of the ladder onto Tank below! Spindoctor climbs the ladder but is caught by London’s low blow and Spindoctor is then suplexed off the ladder. Falcon, London and Spindoctor climb the two ladders, London and Spindoctor’s ladder is shook by Falcon and they fall off into Tank leaving Falcon with his best chance to win the match, he takes it by pulling down the W.A.R. contract to win the match.

Winner and new No1 contender: Falcon


Martial Arts Exhibition

Array of kicks by Danny to a club, then he breaks a board with his fist. Dante and The Judge interrupt the exhibition, Judge bellows “I’m not impressed” and then attempts to break the wooden board (but fails). He then challenges Danny to a 1 on 1 match, which Danny accepts.

Danny v Judge

Judge outwrestles Danny in the early going, Danny is able to recover and kicks Judge directly in the ass. Judge frustrated illegally chokes Danny behind the refs back, the fans start chanting “Jelly, belly” at the Judge. Judge has too much strength for Danny as shown by an avalanche splash in the corner followed by a running cannonball on the fallen Danny. Judge takes Danny to the top rope and hit’s a fall away slam for a close nearfall. Judge power bombs Danny hard to the canvas but as the pinfall is taking place he pulls him up off the canvas. Judge takes the microphone “You could have taken the easy way out, now you are going to be punished” Judge sets up another power bomb but Danny rolls through 1,2 and 3! The fans go crazy for Danny!!

Winner: Danny

Red Tiger’s cruiserweight open challenge

Red Tiger and Nero make their way to the ring “Rob Hunter isn’t here tonight, so I issue an open challenge”. ’Mean Machine’ Iggy Taylor answers the challenge “Tonight your going down, right here in Rugby”.

Red Tiger v Iggy Taylor

Iggy hits Tiger with a side effect and a bulldog for a two count. Iggy attempts a moonsault but Tiger moves (Iggy is able to land on his feet), this isn’t advantageous though because he is quickly hit by a running boot. Tiger chokes Iggy in the corner (the fans boo loudly). Iggy rallies with a jumping hurracanrana and wheelbarrow into a DDT. Tiger retreats to ringside, Iggy attempts a suicide dive but is caught and thrown over head with a belly to belly suplex. Tiger taunts the crowd “The more you speak, the more he gets hurt”. The action returns to the ring, Iggy manages to hit the code red for a close near fall. Nero attacks Iggy from behind, Tiger heads up to the top rope (but he’s wasting time taunting the crowd) Iggy crotches him on the turnbuckle and then hit’s a top rope twist of fate! Both men are down as the ref starts the count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8! Double jump whisper in the wind by Iggy, Tiger exit’s the ring. Asai moonsault by Iggy on Tiger and Nero, Nero distracts Iggy which leads to a hook ddt by Tiger (luckily for him Iggy’s foot is under the ropes). Iggy attempts a twist of fate it’s reversed into a splash mountain for the 1,2 and 3!

Winner: Red Tiger
