Kevin Kronic: Great match! Great Match. Jason Thunder very impressive. I can see you making it very far in the XWF son. And Max..I guess better luck next time huh? Well I didn’t come out here to congradulate anyone, infact I came out here to spice things up a bit. Now we all know the situation that Michael and Nikki Everett are going through, trust me its my grandchild that is missing. Nikki and Michael are in no condition to compete which I understand and wouldn’t hold it against them but Nikki also knows the responsibilites of being a title holder. Now she is coming up on a rule that states you must defend the title and if you can’t then you either figure it out or drop that title. Nikki requested a pinch hitter if you know your baseball terminology. Nikki wants Angel to take her place, defending her title. She knows that Angel, if she loses, loses the title for Nikki. Angel has agreed to this and I’d like to say we have one hell of a match next inferno. It’s going to be Angel…defending the womans title…..against…SHEENA MONTGOMERY!!!!
The fans get out of their chairs screaming and chanting Sheena’s name.
Kevin Kronic: I knew you would like that. So, maybe come Independence we have a new champion? Or…Nikki retains through Angel and defends at Independence. One can never tell whats going to happen in the world of sports entertainment!!
Kevin’s music starts again as he leaves the stage and heads back towards his office.
Michael Cole: Angel? That’s a twist.
JBL: Angel is one diabolical woman. Sheena better make sure she is ready to face the Queen of Darkness.
Jerry Lawler: I dont know… I don’t like Sheenas odds.
Michael Cole: if anyone can send that woman to hell its Sheena!
