Our show opens up to a sold out crowd here tonight. 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.
Michael Buffer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. On his way to the ring first. He hails from Parts Unknown….. The Preacher!
Michael Cole: Welcome everyone to XWF Inferno and as you see, Preacher has returned and he is set to do action in just a few minutes.
Jerry Lawler: There was talk that he might never return, but I’m glad he did.
JBL: Preacher has unfinished business in XWF. There’s enough sin from you along King that keeps Preacher needing to save lives and kick ass!
Michael Cole: This match isn’t just about Preacher though. It’s about Taylor Matthews requesting this match a couple months ago. Wanting revenge against Preacher after she fired one of her close friends. Now she will have that oppertunity.
The dark figure of Preacher along with his beautiful valet, Mindy, step out from behind the smoke, as they make their way to the top of the ramp. Dressed head to toe in a dark suit, he begins slowly gliding down the ramp towards the ring. Fans boo him either side but children have a look of fear in their eyes as he walks past them. 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.

JBL: Tonight Preacher reminded everyone why he’s a former World Champion and one of the most dangerous men in this company.
Michael Cole: Speaking of dangerous though, we have a stacked card tonight. But the one I’m interested in most is our next match. Sometimes when you back an animal into a corner they become their most dangerous. That’s the case for Sheena Montgomery in my opinion.
Jerry Lawler: A losing streak that just won’t go away.
Michael Cole: But in a few minutes that could change. The fans believe in Sheena but does she believe in herself? Can she turn things around? We are about to find out with her title on the line.

Jerry Lawler: Listen to those fans, they know how important that win was.
Michael Cole: No doubt about it. With Sheena scheduled to face Nikki Blade in a few weeks, this was a must-win match for multiple reasons. You have to wonder though if Nikki is happy about this outcome or if she wishes Sheena lost the title.
JBL: I don’t think Nikki cares who she faces, she just wants the gold Michael.
Michael Cole: Fans we are going to take a quick commercial break but more action to come including a Triple Threat match featuring the World Champion. That match will be coming up next.

I’ve told management what I want but still no response. So I’m coming to the man himself. So what do you say champ? You against Me at Redemption with your title on the line. Hell, I’ll even let you name the stipulation or match type. So what do you say Daniel? Do you have the guts? I’ll give you two weeks to decide at the next Inferno.

Michael Cole: If I know Daniel, he’ll want a fight. The question is though does he think he’ll get the best fight out of Michael Everett or someone else?
