  2. Christian comes out on stage to a mild pop. He's not looking as cocky as earlier tonight and is wearing a shiny gold and black jumpsuit. He proceeds limping down the ramp but doesn't seem too ecstatic as he was earlier tonight.

    Ring Announcer: The following contest is a number one contender match for the IWT Tag-Team Championship! Introducing first, from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 224 lbs, CHRISTIAN!

    Announcer 1: Christian still showing effects from earlier tonight from his match with Drake.
    Announcer 2: Question, do you think Christian would have won that match with Drake?
    Announcer 1: Well he would have if he had get up on time, but neither men did.
    Announcer 2: Finally we can agree on something. Christian and his partner Alias will be taking on Lee and Rita right now. The winner will go on to face The Desperadoes later tonight.

    He walks into the ring and poses a bit to the crowd. He doesn't seem to happy after the result of his match with Drake and grabs a microphone.

    Christian wants to speak, but hesitates with anger and starts growling.

    Christian: You know, I'm not the kind of guy who likes living life with regrets! Because how are we as humans supposed to move forward if we keep regretting the past?! But what happened tonight with my match against Drake, WAS BULLSHIT! The referees decision to end the match in a no-contest was BULLSHIT! Drake, you know you dodged a bullet, make no mistake about it. It was clear to me and to everyone in the arena that I knocked the wind out of you and would have gotten the win if it weren't for the referee's clueless judgement! This is the second year anniversary of IWT! How are we going to end a match in a no-contest?! As I said, you dodged a bullet earlier tonight, but there's two more heading straight yours and Midas's way after I'm done with this match! *Christian raised two fingers as he talked about the bullets coming their way*

    Christian: You know, most people in the back would be annoyed that they would have to pull double duty, but here I am hoping for triple tonight! Attention aside from The Desperadoes right now, I'm going to take down the team of your X-Treme Champion, Lee and IWT's newest and fastest rising star, Rita!

    Christian moisturizes his lips by licking them before speaking once again.

    Christian: Rita, I'll just get this off my chest right now...

    You are drop dead gorgeous. You are! You have the beauty of a goddess and shall it be said, any man or woman would die for a date with you, even including myself. BUT... I currently have one thing in sight right now, one target right now and that's the IWT Tag-Team Championship! Beauty is only skin deep and once that's not there anymore, all I see is an annoying, spoiled bitch! And I apologize in advance, Rita, but I'm going to have to steal this win from you and your partner tonight. People like to mention my relevancy in this company as a joke, but I'm still on top of my game, I'm still up on the leaderboards, I'm still getting interviews and I'm still kicking ass better than ever! And it won't be any different tonight!

    Christian: Now onto Lee, IWT's X-Treme Champion! Lee, I don't know you very well, but my tag-team partner, Alias, has told me much about you. He's told me how he had to carry you back in the day during The Cure when you two were tag-team champions. He told me how you were the weaker link of The Cure and was tired of carrying dead meat on his back. He told me how he felt so relieved when you two parted ways, because if he didn't, he wouldn't be what he has become to the company today. And he told me how satisfying it was that he can have a partner who can carry his own weight!

    Christian starts chuckling while he strokes his jaw

    Christian: Funny thing is, he didn't have to tell me any of that. Because when I saw you competing I could already tell that! I could already tell who were going to go big and who weren't! You may be the X-Treme Champion, but when you come against two former World Champions, the odds are stacked against you. The only thing keeping you going is the title you carry around your shoulder and as much as I'd like to say Rita can help you, you'll bring her down just like you brought Alias down! Now I can keep rambling on what I will do to you both and tell you how this match will end, but you guys already know that. I'm still showing the effects from earlier tonight, but that won't effect me now and that won't effect me during my title shot, BECAUSE THAT'S...

  3. Rita saunters out to the top of the ramp wearing a gold bra and shorts, with white boots and a long, white ring jacket.

    She smiles sweetly at the crowds in the arena as she approaches the ring and collects a mic from ringside.
    Once inside the ring she removes the jacket and hands it to an assistant by the apron.

    Rita: Take care of that, it cost more than you're worth.

    She turns back to the centre of the ring, smirking at Christian.

    Rita: I suppose I ought to thank you for some of the things you said. They were very kind- if not obvious to anybody that has eyes that function correctly.
    I do, however, need to get one thing straight. I am not and will never be style over substance. Some of us are blessed enough to have both- I'm truly sorry that you weren't one of the chosen few, sweetheart.

    I can't help being this astoundingly gorgeous and sometimes, I think it's a curse. Like tonight- I trained hard for this match... for my career in IWT as a whole. But it's not like that matters to you, right? I'm just the pretty little post-script in this match of current and ex-champions.

    The coy smile drops from her face instantly.

    Ex champions. Right now neither you nor Alias have shit- or are even remotely worth shit. It's sad that neither of you can accept that whatever you had in the past, is gone.
    I'm the least experienced fighter here... and you think I'm the irrelevant one here, but you couldn't be more wrong.

    If you want to continue to show nothing but ignorance towards me, then be my guest. Just don't be shocked when I prove you wrong.

    Cause proving people wrong... That's how I roll.

    *As Rita finishes her sentence, Alias' theme song begins to play through the arena's PA System and smoke commences to transcend from the ground. Through the smoke, comes out Alias Antonio, to a big ovation (although some boos can be heard), sporting his "The Savior of IWT" t-shirt, looking confident and fearless ahead of this possibly grueling night. He runs down the ramp and quickly enters the ring, shaking Christian's hand, and not even making eye contact with Rita. He grabs a mic.*

    The most wonderful time of the year, isn't it guys? The snow is falling, the kids are singing and playing, good old Christmas time. But for me it's the most wonderful time of the year for completely distinct reasons. Because of this show! The show where we celebrate IWT's existence. IWT's long, sometimes dull, sometimes exciting existence. It's been a good 2 years since the egg was hatched and the seeds were planted for this company to come to fruition, by my good friend Britanica.


    And two years later I proclaim myself as the very SAVIOR of this company. I am the savior because I'm willing to put the work in where other so called "legends" of this industry do not. Just look at us two, me and my friend Christian. This card was nothing but lackadaiscal, and on paper, looked fucking terrible, lets be honest. Not to mention they were running short on matches to book. So Christian and I did what two established legends would do and ASKED to be booked twice, with the possibility of wrestling THREE times tonight. We're the real legends of this company, and I am the savior that this company is in dire need of.

    It doesn't faze me at all that I'm wrestling three times tonight. Not at all. I've gone through hell and brimstone one too many times it simply doesn't concern me or disconcert me how many times I wrestle in one night, especially when it's to ameliorate this company's state. I mean, where's Aids Johnson in times like these? Where's Dat Kid in times like these apart from being the dickhead he always was? I mean, our World Champs don't even dare to show up as much as I do because they truly don't give a shit about this company. And you all need to realize that. That's why I'm leaving this event as a European champion and as a 3 time Tag Team champion. Call me what you want, but I'm as dedicated as can be. I don't care about the money, the fame, the glory that comes along with the successes of being in this business. I'm here because I love this business and the IWT. And no one can take that claim away from me.

    But onto the task at hand. Rita. I do not know who you are, and frankly I don't care. You may be beautiful, but that tag team championship is much more beautiful than you'll ever be, so therefore you're just an irrelevant whore to me. And once that bell rings, that's just exactly how I'm going to treat you. I'll slap you around like you're nothing. And if you want to prove me wrong, slap me back with twice the force, but I know you're not even capable of touching me, so we can already call that a no-no, right?

    *Âlias smirks as he waves at Rita*

    Now. Ben Dover. Little Lee. Lord Lee. Lee. I know you'll come out any minute now. I know you'll try and avert Christian's comments and resort to witty jokes and banter. But you know what, Christian is right. It was actually at this event last year where I proved you were nothing but a burden to carry when I made your ass tap out. It was my first ever singles match in IWT and it was the beginning of the Alias Antonio era. And since then, our careers have gone our divergent ways. I went on to become an X-Div champion and a World Heavyweight Champion whilst you became an IC Champion and now the current X-Treme Champion.

    Now that's not such a big deal. But the difference is that I maintained my relevancy all throughout this year whilst you had to go under various name changes and various personas because you couldn't even find yourself. Like a lost boy in the woods. Luckily for you, SIN picked you up and integrated you as one of theirs. But you see this is how things come full circle.

    I beat you last year, I'll beat you again this year. Not only you, but the very same people who picked you up, SIN.

    Clean sweep for us, and boy, is it beginning to look a lot like christmas!

  5. *Lee comes out violently shaking his head, he walks towards the ring with his head facing the ground still shaking. As he gets into the ring, and sees the slightly perplexed look of Kendall, he abruptly stops. He pats her on the back as he's handed a mic*

    Lee: 'Witty banter' Alias? 'WITTY BANTER'? Damn....Well, I'm not sure if what I have to say will be seen as witty or banterful, it might be just a lil too close to the heart to be either just banter.

    It's funny, when everything is all peachy and nice, you're more than happy to be like "Nah, neither one of us were the main guy, it was joint work", but when your peers are around and the spotlight is on you run straight to the superiority route. I get it, gotta inflate your brand, boost your rep. In a one on one situation you may have the edge Alias...but this isn't a one on one is it?

    What really plays into account is the chemistry of the tag teams. Me and Rita..... *Lee looks longingly at Rita* have this connection we have developed as a duo over these last couple of weeks. In our free time we have got involved in each-others lives, we have realised we are a great duo, we understand each-other so goddamn well. *Lee looks back at Christian and Alias* Really, you and Christian may have a mutual game-plan but frankly, your partnership isn't built on togetherness and chemistry, it's a merely a makeshift operation with power and lust for more and more clouding your visions.

    Christian, congratulations on having the one IWT Mania 2 match more awkward than mine....*Lee sarcastically applauds Christian*. Like, yeah you were a peak performer a year and a half ago, but that was then and this is now, To be honest, you could be another Senhor for all I know....lost your touch...and such.

    Yep, that's what I got.........A short Lee promo? Yeah.....sometimes you gotta swerve it like that.

    Rita......let's cause an IWT earthquake!

    Voting. Great match, peeps.
  7. The match deserves a lot more votes for what it's worth, but I guess it's just a con for running a show during the Holidays. Good job nonetheless.

  8. The suffering is real.
  9. I liked everyone, but Oval always brings that extra bit to make me laugh while still taking him serious. Had to go for team Rita Lee.
  10. Punk and THG brought their A game, per usual. I found their promos to be top notch. Lee and Rita did the same. It's rare to find all 4 competitors to be on a high note in a match like this.

    Kudos - all 4 of you involved.

  13. *At the 14 minute mark, Alias irish whips Rita into the corner. He charges, but she clocks Alias with a big boot and climbs the top rope. She jumps, but Alias catches her in a powerbomb position. Alias walks around confidently as he has her in position. As it looks like he's about to powerbomb her, RITA COUNTERS IT INTO A DRAGONRANA!!!! 1....2....KICK OUT!!!!

    Rita rages at the referee, claiming it was a 3-count as Alias slowly crawls to the corner and tags in Christian. Rita is still arguing with the referee, but Christian swiftly turns her around and nails an ENZIGUIRI! Christian runs to the top rope, but Rita quickly gets up, AND CHUCKS HIM OFF THE TOP ROPE, LOCKING IN THE CROSS ARM BREAKER IN MID AIR (rocky romero style). Rita is screaming as she has Christian desperately trying to get out of the submission, but suddenly.....ALIAS JUMPS OFF THE TOP ROPE, AND HITS A 450 SPLASH ON RITA, BREAKING UP THE HOLD. CHRISTIAN COVERS.....1....2....LEE COMES OFF OF THE TOP ROPE WITH A DIVING HEADBUTT TO CHRISTIAN's MIDSECTION, BREAKING UP THE PIN!!!!! CROWD IS MOLTEN!

    Both Rita and Christian eventually crawl over to their corners and tag in Lee and Alias. Both men walk in the ring and just intensely stare at eachother (shades of last year's anniversary) as the crowd chants "LETS GO LEE! ALIAS!", and they just start trading brutal forearms to one an other. But then LEE HITS A BRUTAL HEADBUTT, partially fazing Alias, who responds with a HUGE SLAP TO LEE's HEAD! Both men are just groggy, until Lee hits another headbutt! Alias is still STANDING but gets pushed back a few yards back! Lee then runs towards and jumps off his feet trying to hit a diving headbutt but ALIAS CATCHES HIM WITH A BRUTAL SUPERKICK!


    *Alias abruptly gets up and hugs Christian as they both rejoice. The referee presents them with the trophies for winning the Tag Tournament. They climb up the turnbuckle to pose with them, and then signal for the tag belts around their waist. Alias then grabs the mic.*

    Alias: One down, two to go. DESPERADOES, TIME IS UP!

    *Alias drops the mic as they both head to the back*
