Our show opens up inside the XWF Performance Center for another edition of XWF Inferno. We have a large, but spaced out crowd here tonight and the fans are ready to see some great action. The camera pans around the arena before eventually heading to commentary where we are joined by the familar commentary crew.
Michael Cole: Welcome everyone to XWF Inferno and what a show we have for you tonight. In our main event, Lucifer Morningstar goes one on one with the Queen of Darkness herself Angel.
JBL: These two are so much alike that it actually makes them hate each other more.
Jerry Lawler: Lets not forget that Angel says that Lucifer isn’t all that he claims to be. If you remember Angel took a liking to Loralie Blackwell but this Lucifer guy, not so much.
Michael Cole: We also have the #1 Contender Vin Halsted who will be in a triple threat match later on tonight. But fans right now lets head down to ringside for our first match of the night. The United States Champion is in action and as we can see Triple X is already in the ring…
Michael Buffer stands in the center and is ready to introduce his opponent.
Michael Buffer: And his opponent, he is the reigning and defending XWF United States Champion… Daniel Slaine!
“99 Bottles” by Slaine plays next as Daniel Slaine comes out from the entrance way. The fans cheer loudly for one of their favorites as he walks down the ramp. Daniel has the look of intensity and focus in his eyes as he climbs into the ring and head toward his corner. Stretching and preparing for a fight.
Triple X Vs Daniel Slaine
The bell sounds and we are ready to go for our next contest. Triple X looks for a tie-up but Daniel Slaine ducks and circles behind him. He lifts Triple X up and plants him down on the mat. Some amature wrestling going on as Slaine holds top position. He stands back to his feet and nails a hard kick across the head with Triple X on his knees. He nails a couple more before going to the ropes and coming back around with a dropkick. Slaine goes for a quick cover…
A quick one count and Slaine applies a headlock on the ground. Triple X starts fighting to his feet with the hold still applied. He lefts up Slaine and sends him down with a back-body drop. Triple X grabs the legs and looks to apply some kind of sharpshooter but Slaine kicks away at him and grabs the ropes. Forcing Triple X to back up from him. Slaine picks himself up on the ring apron and Triple X charges at him. Slaine nails him with a hard elbow that sends him flying backwards a couple of feet. Slaine jumps up onto the top rope and springboards himself onto him. Triple X doesn’t go down though and instead powerbombs him. Triple X with a cover now…
Michael Cole: Kickout at two by Daniel Slaine who looks as good as ever. You have to wonder how he feels about what went down last week with Sheena and Ashley.
Jerry Lawler: We are all keeping Sheena in our thoughts Michael.
Both are slow to their feet and Triple X lifts Slaine up onto his shoulders. He tries to drop him into the turnbuckle but Daniel Slaine wiggles free and Triple X goes head first into the top turnbuckle. Slaine then grabs Triple X and hits him with a snap suplex….
Michael Cole: Daniel Slaine could be ready to put this one away and…hold on a second.
Suddenly Daniel Slaine is attacked from behind by Scott Grayse. The referee call for the bell and Slaine is going to win this match by DQ. The fan boo loudly as Grayse continues to kick away at Slaine.
JBL: The Union continue to pick their spots and make an impact.
Michael Cole: We know that Grayse isn’t a fan of Slaine and after losing that Triple Threat match last week it appears Grayse has been sent to finish the job.
Scott Grayse exits the ring and goes underneath the ring. He grabs a steel chair and slides back into the ring. The fans boo louder as Daniel Slaine tries to fight back. Punching at Grayse with weak punches. Grayse counters by nailing the chair over the back of Slaine who falls to the mat. Scott Grayse begins stalking Slaine now, yelling at him to get up.
Jerry Lawler: We need to get some help out here.
Scott Grayse looking to the final blow, trying to end Slaine’s career when suddenly the fans cheer loudly.
Michael Cole: Mehr! Mehr!
Kyle Mehr rushes down the ramp and slides into the ring. Grayse swings the chair at him but Mehr ducks it. He nails a few punches and nails Grayse with a clothline that sends him flying over the top rope.
Michael Cole: Kyle Mehr has returned! Grayse tried to end his career too but it appears Mehr is back. And how about this. Of all people, helping out Daniel Slaine.
Scott Grayse looks furious that Mehr has returned as he heads up the entrance ramp. Meanwhile Mehr helps Slaine up to his feet as the two look at one another. Daniel Slaine extends his hand and Mehr shakes it as the two appear to be on the same side for now as we go into a commercial break…
:: COMMERCIAL BREAK ::
Michael Cole: Welcome back everyone and as you just saw moments ago, Kyle Mehr has returned here tonight.
JBL: He should be fired. What gives him the right to return like that?
Jerry Lawler: After what Grayse did to him? Putting him out of action for weeks?
Michael Cole: Things are heating up in XWF, no doubt about it. But speaking of heating up. Vin Halsted has been bringing the heat lately and he finds himself in Triple Threat action up next…

Michael Buffer: And on his way to the ring last. He hails from Chicago, Illinois… Vin Halsted!
A blue strobe light flickers over the white smoke as Halsted rises up from the floor to the rampway while standing with his head down and hand-in-hand in front of his body when the first chord of “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold begins to play. He, then, rages forward with his arms spread and a massive yell from his abdomen “Hail to the King” as the line “Hail to the King” crescendos over the arena sound system. The blue strobe light fades as a cascading golden waterfall of fireworks flows from the top of the entrance to the rampway behind him, he saunters forward with a cocky strut and smirk on his face. He jumps onto the middle of the apron in front of the ring, wipes his feet, and jumps over the ropes with ease. He climbs the nearest corner first to stand in front of the crowd to bask in his glory as he stretches his arms with his fists clenched as the refrain of “Hail to the King” plays over again. The music fades as he climbs down, then he turns and smirks at his opponent at the start of the match.

JBL: Give me a break!
Michael Cole: Fans we are going to switch gears for just a second. I want to take you now to an interview that happened earlier tonight. We saw down with Sheena Montgomery to discuss the events that took place on the last Inferno…
As the feed comes up we see Sheena looking still a lil out of it and if she had been crying recently, bandaged up her left leg entirely in a cast and elevated slightly. But she is smiling as best she can.
Sheena “ Howdy yall!”
Micahel Cole: Good to see you Sheena, and the obvious first question is what is your current condition.
Monty chuckles a little and grimices having done so still putting on her best smile.
Sheena “Depends on who ya ask. More then a few of the sawbones here think I’m done fur. a few others think I needed ta git looked over sooner. I’m still purdy banged up, and swimmin in a few chemicals, but alive and well enough ta talk so it s a start.”
Before Cole could could follow up JBL rose to ask his own question.
JBL: How does karma feel? After all if it weren’t for you Ashley, Slaine and The Union would all be together one big happy wrestling dynasty. Do you regret breaking up wrestlings biggest family, and making the XWF a worst place then before you returned.
Sheena “That all ya got john boy? I brought this on myself? … Seems The Union is as scared an deserate as ever… Maybe your precious queen weren’t sure she could beat me if the chance came, or felt threatened to be replaced by the likes a Malaboo, Loralie, Marx and the rest of the new crop a gals. “
Michael Cole: Is there any estimate for your return, as you know Redemption is coming up soon, and im sure ..”’
Sheena “Again depends on who ya ask but the fact is i’m purdy sure to miss Redemption, maybe even lucky ta be up an walking on my own for then. Some folks say six to eight weeks some say three to six months. “
Michael Cole: Given that, and the rule when it comes to title defenses….
Monty again had to fight the hint of tears as the camera panned back to catch a glimpse of the Knockout and tag titles nearbye
Sheena “I’m bound to either piss these docs off enough to want to sign off on me and git me outta here or be some kinna medical marvel and recover quickly ,and seeing how long I have spent pissing people off, and doing what I shouldn’t a been able to you ain’t got nothing to worry about there.”
JBL: Then you haven’t thought about it. Your in no condition to defend those titles Nikki made sure of that, You should just hand them over now, and if you even think of stepping back here she’ll do it again. You’d be better off having Ashley or Cassandra defend them for you…. They are better then you anyway.
Monty took a deep breath before doing her best to sit up and failed letting out the hint of a a sound that seemed to be a mix of a scream and a cry before addressing the camera again.
Sheena “She’d like that wouldn’t she, and clearly so would you . But I ain’t there, and if that question comes up I’ll deal with it my own way. But I wouldn’t ask anyone ta do my job for me. Now I reckon you got about one more a those john boy so git it all outatta your system while I can’t do anything about it. “
JBL: How does it feel to know that Malaboo was your last opponent, and the last memory anyone will ever have of you is you on your back carried out of the XWF?
Sheena “John Mitchell couldn’t kill me, Preacher didn’t bury me deep enough, and Nikki didn’t do nothin but buy herself some time … I’ll be back. You can count on it
Sheen stares at the camera with intensity in her eyes as we go to a commercial break…
