It’s the final show of the year and we are ending it with a bang. Redemption is Live with a big crowd at the XWF Performance Center.
The camera pans around the arena before heading down to commentary with the crew of Michael Cole, JBL, and Jerry “The King” Lawler.
Michael Cole: Welcome everyone to XWF Redemption! 2020 has been one of the craziest years that I can ever remember. So of course, XWF was going to be just as crazy. Tonight the wrestlers in the back are hoping to put their best foot forward and make 2021 their year.

JBL: The last few weeks have been about The Union making a statement and I have a feeling that tonight we end 2020 with The Union on top of the world.

:: COMMERCIAL FOR THE ‘NEW HORIZON’ PPV – MARCH 2021″
We return from commercial as Stephanie Forcier is in the ring waiting for the fans to quiet a little from the excitement of the last match, and of those to come before she finally speaks.
Stephanie: As you all know one half of the Tag Team champions and current Knockouts champion Sheena Montgomery….
She is instantly cut off by the sounds of “Drining My Baby Goodbye “ by the Charlie Daniels Band which gets the fans to there feet in celebration and cheers which only get louder, and wilder when the Madpony emerges from the back onto the stage a crutch helping her hold her up on her left side. She walks to the edge of the stage before taking the titles from around her waist, and raising them high before wrapping them once more around her waist before slowly and clearly still pained, still not cleared. She makes her way down to the ring hobbling but under her own power. Forcier goes to hold the ropes for her but only gets waved off as Sheena tosses the crutch inside before rolling into the ring, and using it and the ring ropes to get to her feet again meeting Stephanie in the middle of the ring. Taking in the support of the fans for a moment too long as Stephanie goes to speak again only to be cut off by Sheena who grabs the mic and while almost stumbling calls out.
Sheena: HOWDY YALLLLLLL!!!!
The fans respond with a howdy of there own before the Madpony now almost a little in tears both at the pain and at the outpouring from the fans, directs her attention to the authority in the ring.
Sheena: For we do what has ta be done. Let me first apologize fur dragging this out, fighting it, and for all the shit you’ve had ta take over it … Lord knows maybe if I weren’t so stubborn I’d be in fighting shape already.
Taking the tag title off her waist and raising it high one time before setting it on her shoulder.
Sheena: A champion that can’t defend they’re titles should relinquish them, and once the doctors told me, and you how long this was gonna take that’s what I oughta have done. …Now as I understand it you and Kev have allowed Ashley to keep the tag titles as long as she had a partner, and lord knows as much a dream team as we made, and will again sometime. There is only one other person that could make a better pardner for her then me. So you be sure Danny boy gits this with my best wishes and blessing.
She takes the tag title off her shoulder and gives it to Stephanie much to a fair amount of the crowds churgrin. Sheena then unhooks the Knockouts title from around her waist and looks at her refelction in it for a moment before setting it on her shoulder.
Sheena: Theres maybe a handful a gals id like ta see hold this, and more then that I don’t think should, and to the lot of them all I can say is it won’t take you half the fight this belt deserves ta win it, you woulda had with me , and you know the first thing … Well maybe the second thing I’ll be looking for when I get back, and believe you me I’ll be back.
She took the title from her shoulder and began to offer it to stephanie.
Sheena: Do with that what you will.
She resisted for a moment before letting it go and tipping her hat to the fans before slowly making her way to the back.
Michael Cole: A tough moment for Sheena Montogmery who was injured at the hands of the Union and now must give up her tag team title and Knockouts title.
JBL: It’s about damn time!
Jerry Lawler: Can’t you show a little respect JBL?
Michael Cole: But you heard it from Sheena. She will be back and I have no doubt she’ll be back and better than ever. But fans the show must continue and it’s now time for our next match of the night…

Michael Buffer: Your Winner of the Match and STILL United States Champion…. Daniel Slaine!

Michael Cole: We all know who that was for.
JBL: Yeah and that person will get hers tonight in the main event!
The fans are all out of their seats after witnessing a great match with Michael Everett and Daniel Slaine. Daniel just making his way out of the ring leaving Michael in the ring. Just then…
Without Me blasts through the arena and Daniel stops at the begininng of the ramp. Michael is sitting up now watching the stage when his father walks out with a Mic in his hand and the tag title on his shoulder. He lifts up the mic to his mouth…
Kevin Kronic: Great Match, Great Match!! How is Redemption been so far??!!
The fans start cheering loudly.
Kevin Kronic: The XWF does not disappoint thats for sure and we certainly dont leave things open ended. Now earlier we saw Sheena dropping both the womans title and the tag. Stephanie will be going through the female roster as to see which lucky knockouts will be chosen to contend for that title. Im out here for one reason and one reason alone. THis…
He hols up the tag title to the fans.
Kevin Kronic: Now Sheena wanted us to personally give this title to you Daniel Slaine and Ashley does need a partner.
Michael starts to get up, you can see him getting mad. Daniel smirks as he walks up towards Kevin and is standing right infront of him. Kevin reaches the title out to Daniel.
Kevin Kronic: Now we are going to do just what Sheena requested but….there is one thing. Even though I am handing it to you, you are not a legal tag champion. But…if you should win with Ashley then you become the new tag champion along side Ashley. if you lose well then you both lose those titles. Sound fair?
Daniel nods but Michael grabs a mic.
Michael Everett: NO!! NO!!! NO!!! That is not fair! How can you just hand hima title he has never won nor defended!! This is outrages!
Kevin Kronic: Son, you didn’t let me finish so when you are done with your little tantrum….
He waits for Michael to lower the mic.
Kevin Kronic: Now before that interuption I was going to say that next week there will be a tag title match as the main event at Inferno to kick off the new year. So Daniel you and Ashley will be facing not one….not two…but three tag teams…and that match is going to be a fatal four way challenge…
Daniel nods looking back at Michael
Kevin Kronic: Don’t get to excited now because Im not finished….yes it will be a fatal four way match but….it will also be a TORNADO TAG MATCH!! And the teams you will be facing will be…Malaboo and her sister Lorilie.
The fans give off a nice pop for them.
Kevin Kronic: Jason Thunder and Lucifer Morningstar!
The fans again cheer and the camera goes back to Kevin.
Kevin Kronic: And last but not least….Michael Everett and Scott Grayse!
The fans start to boo but Michael is grinning ear to ear in the ring nodding his head. Daniel looks at Kronic and reaches his hand out to shake his hand and then turns back towards Michael wo is looking right back at him. Daniel then drapes his title on the other shoulder and walks across the stage exiting the ring followed by Kevin Kronic leaving Michael in the ring as we get ready for the Main Event….
:: FINAL COMMERCIAL BREAK ::
Michael Buffer: The following contest is scheduled for one falls and is your Main Event of the evening. The winner of this match will be the person who escapes from the 2 Cage Structure seen above the ring. First, the challenger. He weighed in tonight at two hundred and sixty pounds. 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. Halsted starts to climb the cage where the match will start as he awaits his opponent.
Michael Buffer: And his opponent, hailing from New York, NY. She is the Reigning and Defending XWF Heavyweight Champion of the World. Ashley Slaine!
Hell Yeah” by Rev Theory hits the PA system next as Ashley Slaine walks onto the stage. She has determination in her eyes and seems more ready for the match as she heads to the ring. Ashley stops at the cage, looking around at the structure. Ashley removes her title and begins to climb the cage. Knowing what awaits her.
Vin Halsted Vs Ashley Slaine (XWF World Title Match)
The bell sounds and our Main Event is officially underway. Both superstars find themselves on top of the first cage as they look around. They can see how high up they are, the fans looking like ants in the stands. And the fact that inside that first cage is thumbtacks covering the mat. The two begin to approach each other and tie up. Vin Halsted delivers a knee to the midsection of Ashley and then puts her into a headlock. Halstead nails a few punches to the face while he’s got her in the headlock but Ashley is able to lift him up and nail him with a back body drop. Ashley gets back to her feet and nails Vin with a couple of elbow drops. Ashley then goes to the center of the cage and stomps on it a little bit. She can see that there isn’t much holding it together and its a long way down. Ashley Slaine picks up Vin and tries to scoop slam him on the cage. Vin stops her though and nails her with a kick to the midsection. He then follows up with a DDT in the center of the cage. The cage bends but doesn’t break which saves both of them from a nasty fall.
Michael Cole: Never before have we seen a match like this in XWF history. I’m told this match originally came from a company called HHW.
JBL: Yeah and how stupid were they? Why would anyone want to compete in a match like this?
Jerry Lawler: Ashley never backs down from a fight, no matter the match. And Vin Halsted doesn’t seem so worried either.
Vin Halsted picks up Ashley and tries to give her a chokeslam through the cage. Ashley fights it off with a couple of elbows and Vin drops her. Ashley follows it up with a dropkick that sends Halsted to the edge of the catch. He waves his arms to catch his balance and does so. Ashley comes charging at him but she runs right into a big boot to the face. Vin picks up Ashley now and drags her to the center of the cage again. He lifts her up for another choke slam and this time nails it. The cage starts to bend more, the center plate weakening but somehow holding together. Vin quickly picks her up again and this time tries for a powerbomb. Ashley Slaine once again starts fighting it. She nails a couple of punches that sends him backwards. Ashey then nails him with a hurricarana that sends Halsted down through the cage and landing on the thumbtacks. He screams in pain as the tacks cover his body.
Michael Cole: My God, can you imagine what he’s feeling right now.
Ashley Slaine looks down at Halsted. She takes a deep breath and says a small prayer to herself. Ashley leaps down the cage and on top of Halsted. They both land on the tacks and both are covered with them now.
JBL: What is she thinking?!
Michael Cole: Putting her body on the line. Ashley knew she had to get into that cage eventually.
Jerry Lawler: Like diving into a pool, except instead of cold water its sharp thumbtacks!
Ashley gets up and brushes away some of the thumbtacks. She goes over the ropes and starts to climb into the 2nd part of the cage. Vin Halsted back up too though. He grabs Ashley by the leg and Ashley Slaine follows up with an enziguri as Halsted falls into the 2nd cage with Ashley. We see Ashley Slaine trying to head out of the cage and end this match early. Halsted catches her by the foot, but Ashley kicks him away and hits a springboard splash. Ashley gets right back up and begins to head up to the top of the cage and straddles the top. Halsted already back on his feet and rushes to the top, stopping him and slams her knee and ankle into the side of the cage before bringing him back into the ring and crotching her on the top rope after a kick to the head. Vin Halsted hits a couple of big elbows to Ashley’s head and Ashley falls off the ropes and onto the mat.
Michael Cole: Important to note here that the only way to escape the cage is through a small opening in the right corner.
JBL: I think what Ashley was trying to do there was not escape through the top of the cage but instead some kind of diving move that got haulted by Halsted. Ashley knows she’s going to have to inflict enough punishment if she wants to leave the cage.
Vin Halsted stomps away at Ashley before picking her up and slamming her right back down to the mat. Halsted begins slapping Ashley across the head before picking her back up. Halsted grabs Ashley by the head and tries tossing her into the cage but Ashley Slaine reverses at the last second and sends Halsted into the cage. Ashley then grabs Vin Halsted and tosses him into the opposite side of the unforgiving steel. Ashley isn’t done though, grabbing Halsted and tossing him into the third side of the cage. The fans know whats coming next as Ashley grabs Halsted and tosses him into the final side of the cage. Vin Halsted bounces off, twirls around and finally falls to the mat. Ashley grabs Halsted by the legs and goes for a single leg crab. She has him locked into the middle of the ring and Halsted knows hes in trouble. Halsted eventually grabs the ropes and while theres no referee to break the hold Ashley decides to do so knowing momentum is lost in the submission hold. Ashley Slaine tries to sneak out of the cage, but Halsted catches her and hits her with a couple of nasty clubbing blows to the back. Halsted brings Ashley back into the middle of the ring and continues to grind away at Ashley, driving his knee down into Ashley’s back and hitting her with a double ax handle to the small of Ashley’s back. Halsted tries for a powerbomb out of the corner, but misses as Ashley rolls out of the way. Ashley tries for the Blade Cutter! but Halsted reverses it and nails a DDT out of nowhere.
Jerry Lawler: I don’t know about you guys but I think this is the end of the Ashley era…
Vin Halsted starting to grab some weapons now. He sets up a table at one corner of the ring and then grabs a kendo stick. He begins bashing it over the back of Ashley who screams out in pain. Once the kendo stick is broke he grabs a chair and uses that instead over the back of Ashley. Vin Halsted grabs Ashley now and locks in the CTFO. A rear-naked choke and there is nowhere for Ashley to go. Halsted applies pressure and is choking the life out of Ashley. A few minutes pass and eventually Halsted releases the hold. Ashley looks out cold as Halsted slowly gets back up. He rips a few tacks out of his skin and then starts to head towards the exit of the cage. He starts to crawl through but then feels a hand touching his boot. Ashley refuses to give up, she’s trying to stop Halsted from leaving. Vin Halsted picks up Ashley and tosses her into the corner. He sets her up on the top rope and tries for the Fahgetaboutit Bomb! Ashley fights it though. Nailing a few punches and is able to escape. Halstead charges with a clothline but Ashley ducks and nails the Blade Cutter! Both superstars down in the middle of the ring.
Michael Cole: This match could come down to whoever gets to the opening first.
After a while both superstars begin crawling towards the cage opening. Ashley starts to climb out but Vin Halsted grabs her and tosses her away. He then starts to climb out but Ashley grabs him. The two begin slinging punches at each other and working their way to their feet. Halsted irish whips Ashley to the ropes and nails her with a spinebuster. He then picks her up and tosses her into the corner again. He’s trying for another Fahgetaboutit Bomb! Ashley is able to counter it though. Getting in position so that she stands in front of him. Grabbing his neck and then the two leap off as Ashley hits a top rope Blade Cutter! And this time Halsted lands through the table. Ashley Slaine begins to crawl and she exits from the cage.
Michael Buffer: Your Winner of the Match and STILL XWF World Champion… Ashley Slaine!
Michael Cole: Ashley has overcome the odds once again. Somehow she has come out on top of this deadly contest.
JBL: She might of won but at what cost? Next week she’ll have to defend the tag team titles and I don’t think her body can hold up for another match so soon.
Michael Cole: The damage might be done but Ashley has proved she’s a fighter. But what about Vin Halsted? What’s next for his career? Will he continue in XWF and continue his fight?
Jerry Lawler: Twenty Twenty-One should be an interesting year!
Michael Cole: No doubt about it. We will see you next year folks. Thank you for joining us. Goodnight!
