It’s the final Inferno before Redemption. We open up to a sold out crowd here tonight and the fans are ready for a great show. Our camera pans around the arena and then heads down to our commentary crew and familar XWF team.
Michael Cole: Welcome everyone to XWF Inferno and what a show we have for you tonight. A stacked lineup from top to bottom and that includes our Main Event and the return of Nikki Everett.
JBL: The Womens Division just got a lot better.
Jerry Lawler: I don’t think anyone can deny her talents, even if they don’t always like the people that she hangs around with.
Michael Cole: A tough challenge though as Michael and Nikki team up to take on Daniel Slaine and Sheena Montgomery. But folks before we get to that, we want to show you something that went down earlier today. This might be hard to watch for some but it involves Lindsey Calaway whose scheduled to compete in a few minutes. Lets take you to the footage…
((We see Lindsey Calaway walking through the parking lot with her luggage in hand. Suddenly a person wearing all black attacks her from behind. The figure stomps on her for a few seconds before picking her up and powerbombing her onto the one of the nearby cars. Security begins to rush into the scene and the person in black quickly rushes away from the scene as people check on Lindsey))
Michael Cole: Many didn’t think that Lindsey would be able to compete tonight. The doctors have asked her not to. However Lindsey has demanded that she still compete and that is what she’s about to do. Angel is already inside the ring as you’ll see in a second and I’m not sure I agree with this decision.
JBL: Its her funeral Cole….
Michael Buffer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. In the ring at this time, she is the Queen of Darkness….Angel! And her opponent she hails from Arlington, Texas….The “One of A Kind” Lindsey Calaway!
The Lights go out and Lindsey’s video comes up on the titan tron as smoke come up from the top of the ramp as Nightmare by Avenged Sevenfold plays on P.A system as Lindsey walks out. She limps through the smoke as she flings her hair back and stand on top of the ramp looking into the crowd. She holds up both of her hands in the air as she forms them into the rock and roll sign and the fans stand on their feet for her. The fans cheer their heads off as Lindsey slides into the ring.
Angel Vs Lindsey Calaway
The two lock up and Angel quickly powers LIndsey into the corner. She grabs her by the throat and tosses her across the ring. Lindsey tries to get up but Angel picks her up by the hair instead. Angel irish whips Lindsey to the ropes and then follows up with a spinebuster. Angel with the cover…
No! Lindsey kicks out at two. Angel delivers a leg drop and then stands right back up. Watchin Lindsey as she tries her hardest to fight back. Angel picks her up again and slaps her across the face. This seems to light a fire under Lindsey Calaway as she begins fighting back with hard left and right punches. She backs Angel up into the ropes and then clothlines her onto the outside. Lindsey Calaway limping a bit, pushes through it and dives through the ropes and takes Angel out on the outside. Lindsey tosses Angel back into the the ring and then begins to climb the turnbuckle. She takes too long though as Angel grabs by and chokeslams her from the turnbuckle. Angel hits Lindsey with a scoop slam and then climbs up onto the top rope. She leaps off with the Apocalypse! and covers her now…
Michae Buffer: Your Winner of the Match by Pinfall…Angel!
Suddenly, the lights begin to flicker, and the screen flashes up bright white blinding everyone in attendance. The crowd automatically boo as the words ‘PREACHER’ come across the screen in big black bold letters, only briefly before being replaced by a black crucifix in the center of the screen. Smoke begins bellowing out from the entrance way eclipsing the XWF logo behind. No music plays as the lights turn to complete darkness, and a single spotlight shines down onto the stage.
Then, the dark figure of Preacher along with his beautiful valet, Mindy, step out from behind the smoke. They are also joiend by about a dozen security guards. We see Angel looking unhappy as she exits from the ring and starts heading up the ramp.
Michael Cole: This could quickly get ugly, what is Preacher doing out here?
Security quickly surrounds Preacher and prevents Angel from getting near him. The two exchange a few words from each other but Angel walks off with a luck of distrust. Preacher continues down the ramp and at the bottom of the ramp he stops, removing his suit jacket and tie and handing it over to Mindy to take care of. He then rolls into the ring, and stands in the center of the ring, arms wide in a cross position, as the lights come back on in the arena.
Michael Cole: Well folks I’m being told that Preacher has asked management to move his match up and it appears that he will be the next to compete tonight. Something is strange about this whole thing.
JBL: Or maybe he just has somewhere to be later tonight and wants to get in the showers early.
Jerry Lawler: DId you see the way he was looking at Angel?
Michael Cole: Knowing Preacher this is something kind of message being sent to her and it wouldn’t suprise me if he was behind what happened to Lindsey.
JBL: Would you stop spreading fake news Michael! You have no proof Preacher did such a thing!
Michael Buffer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. On his way to the ring first. He hails from Huntington Beach, California and weighed in tonight at two hundred and fourty-one pounds….Brandon Draven!
Draven’s music blasts across the arena as the lights fade dim and the arena goes dark as Brandon Draven slowly appears from the shadows. He walks down the ramp with intensity in his eyes and locked onto his opponent. Draven steps into the ring as the lights come back on.
Brandon Draven Vs Preacher
The bell rings. Preacher approaches Brandon Draven and they tie up. Draven overpowers him, pushing him to the turnbuckle and gives him a slap in the face. The crowd “ooh’s”. Preacher charges out of the corner, clotheslining Draven down. Draven gets back up and Preacher grabs him, throwing him into the turnbuckle and hitting a flurry of strikes. Draven drops to the ground and Preacher then begins kicking him in the face. Preacher finishes it off with a big boot across Draven’s face after bouncing off the ropes, but this time Draven is able to move. Preacher drops to the mat and Draven kicks him several times before sliding out of the ring. He takes Preacher’s legs and puts the turnbuckle in between them and pulls. Draven then grabs Preacher’s right leg and smashes it against the turnbuckle. He then grabs it and does it again. Preacher yells in pain. Draven rolls back into the ring and picks Preacher up, who is now favoring the right leg. He puts him in a headlock, pulls him near the center of the ring, and hits a stiff DDT. He gets up, smirking, and puts Preacher in an Inverted Boston Crab. Preacher again yells in pain as Draven cranks on the hold, but refuses to give up. Preacher struggles towards the ropes… aandddd… grabs them. The ref forces Draven to release the hold. He does, and then stalks Preacher, waiting for him to get up.
Michael Cole: Brandon Draven wanted this match, claiming he’s been overlooked countless times.
JBL: Yeah but was facing Preacher the right decision? The man is one of the top superstars in this company and after beating Angel at Anarchy he has to feel he can beat anyone.
Brandon Draven goes to pick Preacher up in some sort of suplex but Preacher shifts his weight and drops behind him. He hits several stiff forearms to the back of Draven’s head before dropping him with a Reverse DDT. He then goes for the pin.
Jerry Lawler: Nope. You know it takes more than that to take Draven out.
Brandon Draven gets up the same time as Preacher does. The two exchange punchers with each other in the middle of the ring. Draven appears to get the upper hand with a couple of extra strikes and then goes to the ropes. He bounces off but Preacher is right there and delivers a nice sidewalk slam on Draven. Preacher picks up Draven now and hits him with The Crucifix! Preacher thinks about going for the cover but stops himself at the last second. He then goes over to the turnbuckle and begins to climb.
Michael Cole: We don’t see this very often. Preacher had this match won, why didn’t he go for the pin?
Preacher leaps off with the Apocolypse! The same move the Angel uses to finish off her opponents. Adding injury to insult and making a clear statement to Angel. Preacher then goes for the cover on Draven.
Michael Buffer: Your Winner of the Match by Pinfall….Preacher!
JBL: What a great move, I’ve never seen anything like it before.
Michael Cole: Something is up. Between Preacher scheduling his match after Angel’s, and using her finisher tonight. Preacher is playing mind games and its a dangerous game to play.
Jerry Lawler: Preacher is looking to eliminate sin from XWF and grow his church.
Michael Cole: He might end up just having a growing list of enemies too. But fans we are taking our first commercial break of the night, when we return Josh Graves will be in action…
:: COMMERCIAL BREAK ::
We return from commercial break and are backstage as Victoria and Danielle Scott, along with Sabrina Rossi are standing next to the gorilla position. Sabrina is holding her stomach and looks to be in pain.
Sabrina Rossi: I can’t do it guys, I can’t compete. This stomach bug that’s going around has hit me hard. I’m sorry.
Victoria Scott: What do you mean you can’t compete? We are in a handicapped match up next!
Sabrina Rossi: I’m sorry…I don’t know what to say…
Danielle Scott: Fine. But you owe us one. Luckily old man Graves should be a walk in the park. Assuming he hasn’t retired by the time we get in the ring.
Victoria Scott: Come on Danielle, lets go. SOME of us have a match to get ready for…
The two leave as Sabrina looks upset about the situation. Suddenly though “All Out Life” By Slipknot blasts across the arena and out walks Trident
Michael Buffer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. On their way to the ring first, they are the team of Victoria and Danielle Scott…The Trident!
“Seek N Destroy” by Metallica blasts through the arena as Josh Graves makes his way out onto the stage. The lights dim and the lights follow him down the stage. He walks up the steel steps and into the ring.
Michael Buffer: And their opponent, He Weighed in tonight at two hundred and forty pounds….Josh Graves!
Josh Graves Vs Danielle Scott & Victoria Scott
The bell sounds and it appears that Victoria Scott and Josh Graves will start things off. The two circle around the ring and tie up. Josh Graves nails Victoria with a kick to the midsection. He then irish whips Victoria to the ropes and when Victoria comes back through Josh nails her with a stiff clothline. Victoria slowly gets to her feet and Josh dares her to come back for more. Victoria Scott instead tags out to Danielle. Danielle Scott and Josh Graves lock up and the two fight into the corner. Both superstars fight around the ring and down to the mat, but neither gains an advantage. There’s a stalemate as they soak in the cheers for both wrestlers. Danielle locks on a headlock now but Graves pushes her off.
Micheal Cole: A slow paced match to start things off and that has to favor Josh Graves in a match where he won’t have a chance to get a rest unlike his opponents.
Danielle Scott hits a couple of elbows to the back of Josh Graves’s head before sending him into the corner hard. Danielle heads up on the corner but Graves catches her on her shoulders. Danielle starts to fight out of it and eventually turns it into a DDT and here’s a cover….
Danielle Scott hits Graves with elbows to the heart and goes for another quick cover….
Two count once again. Danielle Scott waits for Graves to stand, and when he does Danielle nails a huge clothline that sends Graves over the rope to the floor. Danielle rolls outside and grabs Graves by the hair. He slams him into the barricade a couple of times before tossing him back into the ring. Danielle plays to the crowd on the outside but the distraction allows for Graves to a baseball slide that Danielle crashing into the barricade. The referee tells Josh Graves to bring things into the ring and thats exactly what he does. Josh Graves rolls outside the ring, grabs Danielle and slams her head into the steel ring post before rolling her back in. Josh Graves picks up Danielle and goes for a Freeze Flame but Danielle fights out and kicks Graves in the head. Danielle locks in a camel clutch, and Graves looks to be in some pain. He tries fighting for the ropes but hes not getting very far. Intead Josh struggles to his feet, with Danielle on his back. Danielle fights back with elbows to Graves’s neck and then nails him with a belly to belly suplex. Danielle Scott makes a tag to Victoria and Victoria climbs the top rope. Leaping off with an elbow and then a cover…
Victoria Scott hits a suplex and hits Graves with an elbow. Victoria goes to the top but she’s stopped by Josh Graves. Graves rakes at Victoria’s back before hitting a double underhook superplex. Josh Graves goes to the top rope himself but suddely we see Sabrina Rossi running down the ramp and climbing up onto the apron. The referee quickly goes over to her and orders her down but the distraction allows for Victoria to stop Graves and this time Victoria hits a superplex from the top rope and both men are down.
Jerry Lawler: You have to wonder how much of a factor Sabrina will play.
Michael Cole: We saw Sabrina before this match saying she was sick, clearly that was a lie and this was a plan from the beginning.
JBL: Or maybe she’s a quick healer. Why are you so negative Michael?
Victoria tags back out to Danielle who enters the ring again. Danielle Scott heads out to the apron and springboards from the top rope, but Graves catches her and rolls through, standing up and shouldering Danielle. Danielle hangs on to the ropes, so Graves drops her out to the floor. Josh looks around at the crowd and then back at Danielle on the outside. Graves dives through the ropes to the outside to take out Danielle.
Jerry Lawler: What?! Josh is pulling out all the stops tonight.
Josh Graves brings things back into the ring where he hits the belly to back suplex. Graves calls for the Freeze Flame! but again Danielle counters, this time locking in an anaconda vice. The submission slows down the pace of the match and puts serious pressure on Josh Graves. Graves fights out of it and somehow is able to turn it into a sharpshooter. Scott refuses to tap out and Danielle eventually fights her way out of the hold and grabs the ropes. Both superstars slow to get to their feet now and Danielle and Graves trade rights and kicks in the middle of the ring. Danielle gets the upper hand with a back kick. She hits the running knee in the corner and follows it up with a bulldog. Danielle out of nowhere hits the Founding Fathers! A version of the twist of fate and Danielle with the cover…
NO! Josh Graves kicks out at the last second and Danielle begins arguing with the referee. She shoves the referee and the referee has had enough and shoves her back into her corner. Victoria tags herself in and tries calming Danielle down. Josh Graves is back up and nails a splash onto Victoria and that pushes Victoria into Danielle who falls off the apron and lands into Sabrina’s arms. Josh Graves brings Victoria into the middle of the ring and hits her with a Freeze Flame! Graves with a cover…
Michael Buffer: Your Winner of the Match by Pinfall….Josh Graves!
We see Josh Graves celebrating his victory after the match. As he does we also see Jackson Bryant walking onto the stage. He holds the United States title over his shoulder and stares down his future opponent standing in the ring. Josh Graves eventually spots Jackson and looks back at him.
Michael Cole: What a match this one is going to be. Talk about two people who just don’t like each other.
JBL: And Jackson welcomes the challenge. He’s got a chance to end the career of the clown, or at least make sure he never gets another title shot.
Michael Cole: I have no doubt this one will be a blood bath…
:: COMMERCIAL BREAK ::
We return from commercial and its time for our main event! We see Michael Buffer standing in the ring and ready to bring our competitors to the ring.
Michael Buffer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. On their way to the ring first. They are the team of Nikki and Michael Everett!
“Back in Black” by AC/DC blasts across the arena as Michael and Nikki Everett make their way onto the stage. The fans cheer loudly for Nikki as she makes her XWF return. Michael doesn’t get as strong of a reaction but he doesn’t really care either. The two take their time walking down the ramp and heading to the ring.
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 Buffer: And her partner, he is the reigning and defending XWF Heavyweight Champion of the World…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.
Nikki & Michael Everett Vs Daniel Slaine & Sheena Montgomery
Both teams are in the ring, our bell sounds, and this match is officially underway. It appears that Nikki Everett and Sheena Montgomery are going to start this match off. The two circle around the ring before finally locking up. Sheena is able to push Nikki into the corner and then starts hammering away on her with big punches to the head. She works in some kicks to the midsection as well, wasting no time showing that she is the current Knockouts champion. Sheena grabs Nikki and brings her out into the center of the ring and nails a scoop slam. Sheena thinks about going for the cover but instead picks up Nikki and tosses her back into the corner again. Sheena nails a few more punches before irish whipping Nikki into the opposite side of the ring. Sheena Montgomery follows after her with a big splash but Nikki moves out of the way at the last second. It’s Nikki’s turn now to nail some big punches.

Nikki holds Daniel Slaines arm and Michael nails a stiff kick to Slaines midsection. Michael follows up with a DDT and goes for a cover….
Michael Cole: You’ve got to admire what we’ve seen so far from Nikki tonight. If you didn’t know better you’d think she’s been wrestling this past year.
JBL: And there’s no doubt that Michael and Nikki will have the advantage when it comes to being a team. Sheena and Slaine don’t have that same chemistry.
Michael Everett picks up Slaine and locks him into an armbar as well. He locks the hold in for a few seconds but eventually Slaine is able to nail a couple stiff elbows to the head and force Everett to break the hold. Daniel Slaine brings Everett over to his corner and tags in Sheena. Slaine nails Everett with a sidewalk slam, meanwhile Sheena is climbing the top rope. She leaps off with a moonsault and goes for a cover….
Jerry Lawler: Almost a three count and I don’t see any chemistry issues so far JBL.
JBL: Just wait, its not a matter of IF but WHEN.
Sheena Montgomery works Michael into a headlock and begins to apply pressure. Michael drops to a knee as she continues the hold. Everett eventually gets back to his feet and nails her with a back body drop. Michael Everett nails a couple of kick elbows and then goes for another cover…
Another kickout and Sheena tries crawling to the corner. Michael grabs her by the boot though and drags her over to his corner as he makes a tag back to Nikki Everett. Nikki grabs Sheena by her feet and locks in a sharpshooter, similar to Everett’s finisher. Nikki has it locked in pretty well but she’s no master of the move as Sheena is able to eventually crawl to the ropes and force Nikki to break the hold. Nikki does as the referee orders and then picks up Sheena. Nikki puts Sheena in the middle of the ring and nails her with a piledriver. She quickly gets back up nails a couple of stiff kicks. Nikki then starts to climb the turnbuckle but with her back turned Sheena quickly gets to her feet and knocks Nikki down off the ropes and Nikki sits on the top turnbuckle. Sheena begins to climb up and she lifts Nikki up in the air, nailing her with a superplex and both women are down. We see Michael pounding on the turnbuckle, begging Nikki to tag him in. Both women slowly go to their corner. Daniel Slaine gets the tag first and quickly nails an elbow to the back of Nikki and stops her from getting the tag. Slaine drags Nikki back to his corner and nails her with repeated kicks. Slaine picks up Nikki now and nails her with a belly to belly suplex. Slaine tags in Sheena who climbs the top rope again. Slaine hits Nikki with a scoop slam and Sheena leaps off with an elbow drop. She goes for a cover…..
Once again a kickout. Sheena hits Nikki with a bulldog before tagging back out to Daniel Slaine who enters the ring and begins yelling at Nikki. Michael pounds the turnbuckle again, getting the fans to clap along and give Nikki some motivation. Slaine calls for the KTFO! and goes for the move but Nikki is able to sidestep it. Nikki spins around and kicks Slaine between the legs and drops him toe the ground. The referee yells at Nikki that if she does it again she’ll be DQ’d. Nikki is able to get the tag into Michael Everett and he grins as he slowly enters into the ring.
JBL: Here we go, business is picking up!
Michael Everett enters the ring and nails a clothline to Daniel Slaine. Sheena Montgomery gets into the ring and jumps on his back. She tries putting him in a sleeper but Michael grabs her and flips her over his head. Everett grabs her by the legs and teases putting her into the TCO Sharpshooter. He locks the legs when suddenly Slaine attacks him from behind. Slaine nails him with a couple of punches and then irish whips him into the ropes. Everett comes back though and nails him with a spear. Both men are down and the only one moving right now is Sheena. She goes to grab Michael when suddenly Nikki returns out of nowhere and the two begin brawling. They nail each other with big left and right punches and Nikki ends up clothling Sheena onto the outside. Nikki then leaps off the ropes with a suicide dive and this match has gotten crazy in a hurry. Back inside the ring it appears Daniel Slaine will be the man to take charge as he picks up Michael Everett and nails him with the KTFO! Michael is down and out but Slaine isn’t finished yet as he calls for one more. Outside the ring again and it appears that somehow Sheena Montgomery has regained composure and throws Nikki into the steel steps. Nikki looks hurt, perhaps her shoulder and this could be trouble. Daniel Slaine stalks Michael and nails him with a second KTFO! and goes for a cover…
Michael Buffer: Your Winners of the Match by Pinfall….Daniel Slaine and Sheena Montgomery!
Jerry Lawler: It appears they don’t make a bad team after all.
Michael Cole: Exactly what both champions needed heading into Redemption and…hold on a second!
As Daniel Slaine is having his hand raised inside the ring he’s attacked from behind by Michael Everett. He begins stomping on Daniel and Nikki eventually comes in to join him. Michael picks up Slaine and tells Nikki to attack him. Nikki goes on the offensive when suddenly Sheena Montgomery slides into the ring. Nikki charges at her but Sheena hits the Last Call! out of nowhere. Michael Everett drops Slaine and attacks Sheena but she hits him with the Last Call! as well. Both Union members roll out of the ring to fight another day.
JBL: A good strategy, save your energy for the PPV.
Michael Cole: Its a good thing that Sheena was there, who knows what those two would of done.
Daniel Slaine slowly gets back to his feet and he looks over at Sheena. We can hear Daniel Slaine exchanging some words with her. Something about “finally stepping up” and “taking charge of this match”. Daniel then extends his hand out to Sheena. Sheena looks around at the crowd and then down at Slaine’s hand. She shakes his hand as the two smile at one another.
Michael Cole: A good sign of respect from each other and….
BAM! Last Call! from Sheena out of of nowhere on Slaine. Sheena gives off a smile as he climbs the turnbuckle and raises her hands up in the air.
Jerry Lawler: It appears you spoke too soon!
Michael Cole: The Montana Madpony hitting anything that moves! She’s tired of being called the weak link. She’s tired of being talked down too and people judging her words. Tonight Sheena has made an impact and shown that she’s ready to take on anything and anyone!
JBL: She’s a loose cannon!
Michael Cole: Thank you for joining us tonight and we will see you next time on Redemption! Goodnight!
