Lizzie: Ladies and Gentlemen, next is our MAIN EVENT! A bullrope match in which the winner will be the first man to touch all 4 turnposts before his opponent. If a competitor's is knocked off of his feet, then he must start again.
'All Hail The New Flesh' by Strapping Young Lad begins to play through the P.A. and the fans boo. Vladimir Strife walks out onto the stage with an aggressive look upon his face. He's wearing a long sleeve raven blue shirt and baggy black pants as well as black wrestling boots. Across his waist is the SCW Solid Kore title.
"Introducing first, making his way to the ring, from Sighisoara, Romania, weighing in at 269 pounds, he is the undefeated SCW Solid Kore champion... VLADIMIR STRRRIFE!"
Vladimir walks down the entrance ramp, paying no attention to the booing audience, and climbs up the metal stairs and into the ring.
JP: This folks, is Vladimir's first match within GHW. Of course, he is known to most from SCW as one of the most depraved, sick, twisted, and insane men to ever step into that ring. Ray: Damn good looking too!
Vladimir takes his title off and holds it up high, showing it off, then tosses it to the announcers table.
JP: Looks like Vlad's entrusting us with holding his title for him. Ray: Or he's stripping. TAKE IT ALL OFF!
Vladimir and audience members near Ray all look at him with uncertainty, then Vlad shakes his head and looks back to the entrance, awaiting his opponent.

JP: I can't say that I know much about Vlad's opponent for tonight, seeing as he is a GHW Superstar. What we do know is that he lost in a tag team match against SCW's Hawkeye and Rurouni, but then went on to win the main event, the following week against GHW's Hayden Hardkore.
Ray: So far what that shows me, JP, is that he can't handle the sexiness of our Superstars, like Vlad, oh so hot right now!
JP (reading off some notes): Right... Anyways, he is a specialist in martial arts and bar fighting?
Ray: Meeow, he could take me to a bar any day!
JP slowly inches away from Ray. The lights dim down as Lizzie puts the microphone to her lips.
All for you by Our Lady Peace plays as black and white images of "The knockout kid" show up on the screen as the piano introduction comes to an end. The baseline starts as Tai O'Neil emerges. He smiles to the crowd and slowly walks down the ramp on one side. He slaps a few hands and then, without warning, jumps onto the barrier and looks out at the crowd as they cheer him on. He then jumps down and does the same on the other side.
Lizzie: And his opponent, hailing from San Diego, California, standing six feet and zero inches tall and weighing in at two hundred and forty-nine pounds. He is the knockout kid, Tai O'Neil!
Tai is wearing a blue headband, blue wrestling trunks, blue and white elbow and knee pads, blue and white leather gloves all with a red fist design and blue and white wrestling boots without the design. He is also wearing his blue and white leather jacket with the red fist on the back, as well as a pair of black sunglasses.
As he approaches the ring, he runs up the steel steps, places both hands on the top rope and hops over it. He mounts onto the nearest turnbuckle, brushes the hair away from his face and smiles. He does this on all four corners before jumping down. He removes his leather jacket, which he hangs on the back of a turnbuckle and throws his shades to the crowd. He sits on the rope while he waits for Lizzie to exit the ring. Instead of stepping over the rope, she steps onto it, causing Tai to lose his balance. He falls out of the ring, but still lands on his feet. Lizzie turns to Vlad and mouthes: Go get him, Vlad. Vlad smiles menacingly. Tai slides back into the ring as the two approach the ref. He slips each end of the bull rope and slips it onto one of Vlad's hands and then onto one of Tai's. He tightens the rope so it doesn't come off.
The bell rings as Tai and Vlad start to circle. Vlad smiles again knowing knowing that he can crush Tai. They are the same height but Vlad is heavier. Tai moves as far as the rope will allow him, then twirls in, wrapping the rope around his body, but leaving his right arm on the outside. Now standing right next to Vlad, he punches him three times in the face. Tai twirls out a little bit and then kicks Vlad in the stomach and then in the knee. But Vlad seems unfazed.

OOC: Man, i'm so sorry it took so long for me to reply. I've been sick, so I'm gonna talk to KingBear and see if maybe there can be an extension, seeing as it is the PPV.

JP: Vladimir is used to taking scythes and barbed wire to the face, how does this guy hope to beat him with just his hands? Ray: (giggles) You said 'beat him'
Vladimir lifts up a single finger and moves it side to side and then grabs Tai by the hair and slams a punch into Tai's forehead. Tai stumbles back a few steps and Vlad rushes forward. Tai lifts his foot into Vladimir's stomach and stops him though, doubling Vladimir almost over.
Tai is quick to take a shot at Vladimir's skull with a few punches, causing him to cover it with his arms. He takes a step back and then one forward, swinging a devastating right foot for Vladimir's head. It catches Vladimir right across the ear and sends him down to the mat.
JP: Well, it looks like we underestimate Tai!! That was the most devastating kick I've seen in my career! Ray: Look at those sexy calfs of his! Look at them, JP! JP: Well, as Ray meant to say, yes, Tai has some powerful legs as due to the martial arts background. Those fists and feet are deadly weapons, Ray. If Vladimir doesn't watch himself, he might find out why they say 'never underestimate your opponent'!
Vladimir lays on the mat with his face down and reaches into his pocket where Tai and the referree can't see him. Tai grabs him by the head and begins to drag him up to his feet, Vladimir seeming reluctant. Vladimir suddenly lifts his head up though and strikes Tai with a shot to the jaw that sends him back and almost falling over.
JP: Vlad's got those brass knucks! Is that even legal? Ray: Well, they just have to tag the turnposts to win, so, I guess anything else is legal.
Vladimir swings for Tai with the knucks again but Tai ducks under it and comes up behind Vladimir. He turns around and grabs the rope and pulls on it, pulling Vladimir around and towards him, where Tai meet Vlad with a clothesline.
Vladimir quickly gets back up to his feet where he is met with another clothesline. Back to his feet once more and recieves a kick to his stomach. Tai takes another step back and then throws another devastating kick at Vladimir's head. Vlad ducks it this time however, learning from before.
The force of the kick causes Tai to spin around and land his foot on the mat with the rope between his legs. Vladimir yanks up on it quickly and it tauts, hitting Tai in the groin and causing him to drop onto his knees on the mat in agony.
Ray: Not the baby-maker! Don't be messing with that! JP: Oooh, I think every guy here tonight felt that one! It seems as though both competitors are making good use of that rope here tonight.

As Tai stays on his knees clutching his balls, Vlad, without blinking an eye, kicks O'Neil in the head. Tai falls to the ground. Strife doesn't waste any time, he immediately goes and touches the first turnbuckle, although, no sooner does he touch the turnbuckle, he receives something hard hitting him in the back. He turns around to see Tai standing and the cowbell at his feet. Tai rushes Vlad with a spear.
JP: Too bad, now Vlad is going to have to start over again.
Ray: I don't understand why that's so bad... I would gladly get speared by Tai O'Neil!
Tai extends a hand to Vlad, to help him to his feet. Vlad looks up in awe, then wraps his legs around Tai's arms and pulls him down into an armbar.
JP: Wow... I have lost some respect for Tai O'Neil right there. How much of an idiot do you have to be in order to get caught in that? He practically handed that move to Vlad.
Ray's jaw drops as he starts to drool.
Ray: Look at where his hand is! I would give one of my suits to be in that position!
Tai turns his legs so that they are directly in Vlad's face. Vlad releases the armbar as both men get to their feet. Vlad is quick with a dropkick to Tai's knee. Tai drops to the ground as Vlad strategically wraps the rope around The Knockout Kid's neck and chokes him.

((It's ok... BTW, this post might be PG-13 for graphic content and be long, I'm in a pretty bad mood tonight, lol.))
Vladimir pulls tight on the rope as Tai reaches out drastically for something to grab a hold of. He balls his fists up and brings one over his head, slamming it acrossed the bridge of Vladimir's nose.
Vladimir lets go of the rope and stumbles back a bit as Tai gets the rope from his neck and begins to gasp, getting as much air as he can into his lungs again. He then gets back up to his feet and turns around just in time to duck a clothesline from Vladimir, wrapping his arm around Vladimir's shoulder and jumping across the back of him, he grabs Vladimir's head and plants him with the spinning DDT.
JP: Excellent counter there by Tai Nai. We thought this match was going to be one sided, but it looks like he's coming into his own out here. Vladimir made the mistake of underestimating him. Ray: Never underestimate what a man can do *mumbles* in bed.
Tai gets up without much problem and waits for Vladimir to get up, holding the bell in his hand. He hits Vlad across the back with it, causing Vlad's back to arch. Tai hits him across the back with the cowbell again and Vladimir lets out a yelp in pain but rises up to his feet through the pain.
Tai smacks the cowbell acrossed Vladimir's head and Vlad's head jerks to the side, but he stays on his feet. Tai hits him again to the same result. A bit in shock, he drops the bell and then jumps up off of his feet. The top of his right foot connects with the side of Vladimir's head with a loud clap and it sends him over the top rope.
JP: OH MY GOD! DID YOU HEAR THAT!!! Ray: THAT MIGHT HAVE KNOCKED HIM GAY!! I better go check on him!
Vladimir lays out on the ground as Tai walks over and taps a turnbuckle. He walks to the second one and tags it as well. As he goes for the third one though, he can't reach it due to not having enough length with the rope. Tai tries to pull on it but has no luck.
Vladimir begins to get up but stumbles and falls back down, blood running down the side of his face.
JP: HOLY SH*T! VLADIMIR IS BLEEDING FROM THE EAR! HE'S BLEEDING FROM THE F*CKING EAR!! Ray: That has to be the hardest kick EVER!
Vladimir tries to get up again and grabs the ropes and leans to the side and hits the ring before pulling himself up a bit. His face gets a grimaced look, seeming like he was having trouble lifting himself up. Tai comes over and goes to grab him by the head but Vladimir grabs the rope near Tai's wrist and drops back to the outside. Tai's upper torso slams down hard on the rope and Vlad's weight sends him flipping over the rope, landing hard on the mats next to Vlad.
Vladimir slowly gets up as Tai is and stumbles about. He rolls into the ring and back out on the other side of the turnbuckle as Tai is getting to his feet. With a hard jerk on the rope, Vladimir brings his weight into it and pulls Tai forward, Tai having to run with it to keep from falling. His face connects with the steel post and bounces back from the force. The grounded Vladimir pulls it hard again and Tai's head bounces against the post another time.
JP: OUCH! Tai's head just got bashed twice into that steel post and I tell you folks, there's no give to that! Ray: Or to me *giggles* JP: I think Vlad's eardrum was busted by that tremendous kick earlier. If so, that would explain why he's been having a hard time standing. Ray: You want to know why I'm having a hard time standing? JP: For the love of God, NO! Anyhow, a busted eardrum throws off a person equilibrium, their balance. And judging by all the blood running down from his ear, I'd say yes, it's busted.
Vladimir crawls and gets up long enough to roll back into the ring, as does Tai after a moment. The two get up to their feet and Vladimir stumbles back into the turnbuckle and lifts his hand to his ear then looks at it, seeing the blood. Tai lifts his own hand to his forehead and comes back with blood on his hand as well, busted on the eyebrow.
Tai rushes at Vlad, realizing he can't move well and comes in for a turnbuckle splash. Vladimir drops down onto his but and lets Tai's stomach hit across the turnbuckle and almost fly out of the ring. Vladimir pulls himself up and grabs Tai's legs, pulling him up into a powerbomb and falling forward to the mat with him.
JP: And there's the danger of Vladimir Strife. Even in some of his worst predicaments, Vladimir is so smart in that ring that he finds a way to turn it around or to work around it. Ray: And you get mesmerized looking at that a- *JP pulls his hand back to slap him* ATHLETIC ABILITY!
Vladimir pulls Tai up into a sitting position and stumbles on his feet a little, then takes the rope in his hand and doubles it over. Vladimir raises it a bit and grabs Tai's hair, pulling his head back. He then smacks Tai acrossed the right eye with the bullrope, causing him to yell out in pain.
Vladimir raises it again, but Tai is covering his face with his hands. Vlad drops down on him with an elbow onto the hand covering the eye, the impact smacking Tai's hand into his eye and hurting it further. Vlad takes the pulls Tai's hands away and takes the bell, raking the metal edge at the bottom across the bottom of Tai's eye, which is now also bleeding and already turned a deep shade of purple.
JP: Oh my god! Vlad is targetting that eye and F*CK! HE JUST HIT HIM RIGHT IN THE D^MN EYE WITH THE COWBELL!!! Ray, thinking quickly, takes a microphone and grins. "Hey, JP, I was wondering... what do you think Tai Nai O'Neil needs right about now?" JP looks confused but answers. "Probably a d@mn doctor!!" Ray shakes his head and smiles, looking to Vladimir. He points to Tai and yells into the microphone. "NEEDS MORE COWBELL!!!"
Vladimir brings the bell back up again and slams it against Tai's face and lets him go, Tai falling onto his side and clutching at the pain in his eye and face.
Ray sits back down and put on his head set, handing the microphone back to Lizzie.
