You are beautiful on the inside.
You are innocence personified.
And I will drag you down and sell you out.
XWF Inferno opens up to a sold out crowd here tonight and the new music of Michael Everett is blasting across the arena. The camera pans down to the entrance way as Michael Everett slowly walks onto the stage. He is wearing an expensive suit and begins to head down the entrance ramp.
Michael Cole: Welcome everyone to XWF Inferno and as you can see the champion is making his way down to the ring.
Jerry Lawler: Yeah but what does he want?
JBL: What does it matter what he wants? He’s the champ! He can do whatever the hell he feels like.
Michael Cole: Round 2 of the XWF Invitational is set to be underway tonight and you have to wonder if….what are you doing Michael?
We see Michael Everett standing in front of Jerry Lawler and telling him to leave. Jerry looks confused but Michael continues to shout at him until King grabs his belongings and heads to the back. Michael takes a seat in his spot, placing the World Title down on the desk.
Michael Everett: How are we doing tonight boys?
JBL: Let me just say it is a pleasure to have you out here.
Michael Cole: So will you be joining us for this first match? Because your the champion you can do whatever you want?
Michael Everett: Shut your mouth Cole. I’ll be out here all night scouting the competition. I want to see what kind of losers I’m dealing with in this tournament. And if you don’t watch yourself I’ll be kicking you out too.
JBL: We could only get so lucky…
Michael Cole: It’s going to be a long night with the two of you. But our first match is set to get underway so I suppose we should send things to the right…
Michael Buffer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Making his way to the ring first…
Ethan Jones makes his way onto the stage and the fans cheer loudly. The fireworks shoot out behind him as he walks down the ramp, slapping fans hands. He makes it about half way when he’s suddenly attacked from behind by Brett Myles. Myles gets Ethan on the ground and begins nailing him with hard kicks and punches. Myles then grabs Ethan and tosses him into the ring. Myles follows and delivers a curb stomp to Ethan as this match is now underway…
Ethan Jones Vs Brett Myles
Ethan is stunned and Myles has him in the middle of the ring. Brett Myles goes up top and leaps off with a shooting star press that he calls the “Myles High Club”. He connects and goes for the cover….
THR-NO! Ethan kicks out at the last second and Brett can’t believe it. He goes up top again and leaps off with his finisher once more bu this time Ethan Jones gets the legs up. Ethan quickly gets to his feet and hits Myles with the FINISHER! and covers him…
Michael Buffer: Your Winner of the match by Pinfall…Ethan Jones!
Michael Cole: We didn’t get much of a chance to talk about this match as Ethan makes quick work of Brett Myles. What did you think about this match Michael?
Michael Everett: It was a horrible match. I didn’t see much from either superstar that impressed me. Anyone can get lucky and get a quick victory. But whats going to happen when Ethan has to last thirty minutes in a match against someone like me?
JBL: He couldn’t last ten minutes with you in my opinion.
Michael Cole: Ethan might have a chance to prove you wrong JBL but he still has a long ways to go. Up next though our tournament matchups continue. This time it’ll be Taylor Matthews in action!
Michael Buffer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Making her way to the ring first….Danielle Scott!
“”Riot” By Three Days Grace blasts through the arena as Danielle Scott is seen walking out on to the stage. The fans boo her as she runs down the ramp and she slides in under the bottom rope. Danielle stands up then she leans back on the turnbuckles as she waits for her opponent.
Michael Buffer: And her opponent, she hails from Houston, Texas and is the Evolution Champion…Taylor Matthews!
Fighter by Christina Aguilera begins to play and out walks Taylor Matthews. She gets a strong reaction from the crowd as she walks down the entrance ramp and slaps a few fans hands. Taylor walks up the steel steps and climbs up the turnbuckle, raising her arms high in the air. Taylor jumps down and heads to her corner.
Danielle Scott Vs Taylor Matthews
The two Divas lock up and Danielle Scott immediately gets in Taylor Matthews face and slaps her straight across the face as well. Matthews tackles her to the ground and the two begin rolling around the ring. Danielle gets on top and begins grabbing Matthews by the hair, slaming her head into the mat over and over again. It isn’t long, however, before the tide is turned and Matthews is in control of the offense in this match. Matthews establishes control over Danielle with a couple of submission holds. Working the legs and slowing down the match. Danielle frees herself but immediately gets belly-to-belly suplex. Taylor with a cover…
Michael Cole: How big of an oppertunity would it be for Taylor to get that long awaited World title shot.
Michael Everett: Way to choose favorites Cole. Both of these women have a great chance of winning tonight, but neither of them have a chance at beating me. Being an Evolution Champion is one thing but the World Title is an entirely different league.
The two battle back-and-forth a bit until Matthews ends up outside the ring. Danielle gets on the top rope and flies out to the floor, nailing Matthews with a huge flying clothesline from the top-rope to the outside of the ring. Replays are shown of that as the action resumes inside the ring. Back in the ring, Danielle gos for a quick cover.
Only a two count and Danielle begins arguing with the referee. He tells her it was only a two count but she is certain it was three. She continues to argue when suddely Matthews rolls her up out of nowhere….
No! Only a two count. Taylor brings Danielle towards the turnbuckle and lifts her up on it. Taylor climbs the turnbuckle as well and lifts her off with a superplex and both women are down. The fans begin clapping and cheering as both ladies get back to their feet. Danielle goes for a clothline but its ducked by Taylor who follows up with a dropkick. Taylor picks Danielle back up and irish whips her into the ropes. Taylor Matthews flies off and hits her with a spear. She eventually follows that up with the Matthews Effect! and goes for the cover….
Michael Buffer: Your Winner of the Match by Pinfall….Taylor Matthews!
JBL: And just like that, Taylor advances to the next round.
Michael Everett: A solid victory, I’ll give her that. But Taylor isn’t the type that strikes me as World Champion material. She’s had her chances and always falls short.
Michael Cole: So perhaps she’s finally due…
Michael Everett: Due for a loss if she steps into the ring with Le Champion.
Michael Cole: Folks w are going to take a short commercial break but we’ll have more great action for you as our XWF Invitational continues…
:: COMMERCIAL BREAK ::
We return from commercial where we see Brandon Draven pacing back and forth. He stretches for a few seconds and begins to pace again.
Michael Cole: Welcome back folks and as you can see, Brandon Draven is waiting inside the ring for our next match so lets not waste any more time….
Michael Buffer: And the opponent, she hails from Joliet, Montana….The Montana Madpony….Sheena Montgomery!
“Drinking My Baby Goodbye” by the Charlie Daniels band begins playing over the PA system. Sheena then walks out, strutting, whirling, and twirling just totally into it as she makes her way down to the ring, stopping nearest the guardrail by the steps. She lets a fan, often a child, give her a quick good luck peck on the cheek, which she returns before shooting up the stairs and hopping over the ropes. She climbs the turnbuckle and once on top of it, she turns her hands into six shooters firing off towards the crowd before blowing them out and hopping down.

Michael Cole: John, when it comes to a match like this, who has the advantage?
JBL: I think you have to give the advantage to Sheena. She’s ready to fight, she’s been in this type of tournament before. The smart money is on her tonight.
Brandon Draven works on Sheena’s arm, but Sheena’s able to fight to her feet. Draven tries to work on Sheena’s arm again, but Sheena fights out and hits a knee to Draven’s gut. Sheena hits a series of kicks to Draven and follows with a dragon screw and then a quick cover…

He waits for her to get up and tries for a DDT but Sheena holds on and then flips him over her head and bridges into a pin….
Michael Everett: Only a two count but a fast count in my opinion. I have to wonder if the referee is in Sheena’s corner tonight.
JBL: I didn’t notice it myself, but now that you mention it Michael I think you’re right.
Michael Cole: O, please….
It was only a two count, the first pin of the night for Sheena. Both back on their feet and Draven and Sheena trade right hands.
