THE LEAGUE: SEASON TWO WEEK TWELVE- 01/08/2011

Posted by WrestleUTA on 10 Sep 2015

Season Two, Week Twelve
Osaka, Japan
January 8, 2011

THE LEAGUE: WEEK TWELVE
As the requisite pyro erupts within the Kyocera Dome Osaka, the crowd starts cheering as we inch ever closer to the postseason. As the explosions die down, we cut to ringside and our usual announcing team.

Bob Sinclair: Welcome, everyone, to week twelve of The League! Bob Sinclair, here as always with Frankie Garnett, and Frankie, tonight we could see our first postseason berth clinches!

Frankie Garnett: Yes indeed, Bob, two divisions could be clinched tonight, plus at least a wild card berth in the Gamma Division. We could walk out of Osaka with half the playoff field being known!

Bob Sinclair: In order to get to those matches, we need to get the show on the road. Amelia, if you'll do the honors...?
 

Ly Quang Bao (4-7) vs. Super Century (3-8)

Psykosonik's "Panik Kontrol" echoes throughout the arena as our next participant emerges, nearly hidden in a cloud of red smoke. As the beat continues, he sprints down the aisle, leaping onto the apron and somersaulting over the top rope, coming to a halt in the middle of the ring and looking ready to fight as the song fades.

Amelia Williams: Ladies and gentlemen, our opening contest this week is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Bien Hoa, Vietnam, weighing 177 pounds...Ly Quang Bao!

Bob Sinclair: Bao has been mathematically eliminated from the Alpha Division race, but he still has an outside chance at a wild card berth.

Frankie Garnett: Outside chance? Snowballs have a better chance in Hawaii, Bob.

Without warning, all of the lights go off in the arena, casting everything into pitch blackness. A few seconds pass before a spotlight shines on one of the turnbuckles, revealing no one there. This is repeated with all four turnbuckles, each revealing no one there. Finally, one last spotlight shines down onto the middle of the ring, which reveals the caped form of The League's resident superhero, who stands with arms folded and staring intently into the audience.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from the Halls of Justice, weighing 205 pounds...Super Century!

Bob Sinclair: Unlike Bao, Century has been eliminated from all hopes of playoff contention, and can only play spoiler the remainder of the season.

Frankie Garnett: I'm not going to say I told you so, Bob, but....

Frankie Garnett: Ain't happening. Trust me on that one.
 

Shawn Arrows (3-8) vs. El Demonio de Sangre (2-9)
Bob Sinclair: Why are you so certain?

Frankie Garnett: Simple. Too many variables.

Bob Sinclair: ...You have a valid point. I'm shocked.

The opening notes of Linkin Park's "Numb" hit as he emerges from backstage, casting his gaze over the largely jeering crowd before flipping them the bird and dashing down the entrance ramp, diving under the bottom rope and into the ring.

Amelia Williams: This bout is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Raleigh, North Carolina, weighing 212 pounds...Shawn Arrows!

Frankie Garnett: I'm calling it now, Bob. I see a third season for Arrows being unlikely.

Bob Sinclair: Why is that?

Frankie Garnett: He's a career 8-17 in The League. If this were GAMMA, he'd be released long before now for being to terrible.

The beat of Danzig's "Am I Demon" hit the speakers as the lone luchador in The League emerges from backstage. His mask is obscured by the smoke billowing around him, and it is a blood-red spotlight that follows him to the ring as he hops over the top rope and waits impatiently for the carnage to begin.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Tijuana, Mexico, weighing 142 pounds...he is El Demonio de Sangre!

Bob Sinclair: Demonio's had very little success this season, as well. Is he likely to return next season, Frankie?

Frankie Garnett: Hard to say. I think he will, but when you're dealing with substandard wrestlers you can never tell.

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of twelve minutes and ten seconds...El Demonio de Sangre!

Bob Sinclair: Demonio with his third win of the season, though I thought Arrows might have had him earlier on, Frankie.

Frankie Garnett: I didn't. I could have fallen asleep and not missed much.
 

Nuclear Templeton (7-4) vs. Diamond (5-6)
Bob Sinclair: Well, you might want to stay awake for this one, Frankie. This match has playoff inplications.

Frankie Garnett: Thank goodness, I was beginning to wonder how much more boring this could get.

Billy Idol's "Shock to the System" hits the speakers, bringing the crowd to their feet in ovation as one of the League's more recognizable faces emerges from backstage and across the green-tinted stage. As he hits the end of the entrance ramp, he throws his arms into the air, sending a pair of mushroom clouds into the air from the stage as he makes his way to the ring and through the ropes.

Amelia Williams: This match is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first from Atlantic City, New Jersey, weighing 278 pounds, he is the Alpha Division leader...Nuclear Templeton!

Bob Sinclair: Nuclear can do himself a huge favor here. If he wins, and Robbie Maynard and SGRaaize both lose later on, Templeton clinches the Alpha Division title tonight.

Frankie Garnett: He's got his work cut out for him, though.

The instrumental-only version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" hits the arena to a mixed reaction as The League's lone female member emerges from backstage. There is a confident smirk on her face as she talks trash with some of the louder fans before sprinting into the ring by diving under the bottom rope. As she stands, she proceeds to the corner nearest the announce table, hands thrown in the air as the soaks in the crowd reaction.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Aberdeen, Scotland, weighing 137 pounds...Diamond!

Bob Sinclair: For Diamond, it's simple. A win keeps her in the hunt for the Delta Division title. A loss essentially ends any hope she has of making the playoffs.

Frankie Garnett: This is the type of match I've been waiting to see all season, Bob! This should be good!

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of thirteen minutes and ten seconds...Nuclear Templeton!

Bob Sinclair: And Templeton has all but assured a division title, but not without some controversy, Frankie!

Frankie Garnett: That much is obvious! He should have been DQ'ed!
 

Robbie Maynard (5-6) vs. Tarik Nolan (7-4)
Bob Sinclair: However, the ref didn't call it for some reason, so the result remains. Templeton wins, but you've got to ask yourself if he could have done it without the steel chair shot.

The opening riffs of Metallica's "Master of Puppets" hits the speakers, drawing a mixed reaction from the crowd as one of the League's initial playoff wrestlers emerges from the stage, bathed in a blue light shining beneath him. After pausing to mentally prepare himself, he walks to the ring, his eyes never leaving the squared circle as he climbs onto the apron and ducks between the ropes.

Amelia Williams: This contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Liverpool, England, weighing 251 pounds...Robbie Maynard!

Bob Sinclair: With the Templeton win earlier, Maynard can only keep his chances alive with a win here. A loss, and he's out of the divisional hunt and likely the playoffs altogether.

Frankie Garnett: If anyone can stop the juggernaut his opponent has become lately, Bob, is Maynard.

"Regulate" hits the speakers, immediately drawing the ire of the crowd as a large figure stands in the entryway, backlit by a clear spotlight. Pyro explodes on the stage, causing the light to shut off as the figure finally emerges onto the stage proper. Laughing at the boos hurled in his direction, he takes his time walking to the ring and subsequently entering it for his next match.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Shreveport, Louisiana, weighing 292 pounds...Tarik Nolan!

Bob Sinclair: Nolan cannot clinch anything tonight, but a win here puts him in position next week to possibly clinch a wild card spot.

Frankie Garnett: If you'd have asked me at the beginning of the season whether three people from the Gamma Division would make the playoffs, I'd have told you no. I still think it shouldn't have happened, but the possibility is there.

Sebastian Moore (8-3) vs. Sean (9-2)
Bob Sinclair: And now we get to one of the more intriguing matchups of the night, Frankie. It's a battle of divisional leaders.

Frankie Garnett: Why isn't this the main event, Bob?

Bob Sinclair: Why ask me? I'm not in charge of scheduling.

It is to Muse's "Assassin" that he emerges, an arrogant smirk crossing his face as he soaks in the jeers of the crowd. Looking up at the spotlight for a moment, his smirk seems to get even bigger as he walks down the ramp, ignoring the catcalls of the crowd as he ascends the steps, wipes his feet on the apron, and steps through the ropes.

Amelia Williams: This bout is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Manchester, England, weighing 237 pounds, he is the current Beta Division leader...Sebastian Moore!

Bob Sinclair: If Moore wins, and Maxx Skabb loses later tonight, Moore clinches the Beta Division due to having swept Skabb this season and thus owning the tiebreaker.

Frankie Garnett: He's got a lot to fight for tonight; this should be great!

Black Sabbath's classic "Iron Man" hits the arena speakers, as strobe lights begin to flash in the entryway. Fog rolls in from the entrance proper as a figure emerges, walking slowly to the ring and mentally preparing for what's ahead of him. He slides in under the bottom rope and walks over to one of the nearby turnbuckles, leaning up against them as the song fades.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Charlotte, North Carolina, weighing 230 pounds, he is the current Gamma Division leader...Sean!

Bob Sinclair: On the flip side, if Sean wins, he's locker up at least a wild card berth and will be in the playoffs for the second season running.

Frankie Garnett: See, Bob? THIS is why I came here tonight.

Bob Sinclair: Not because, you know, it's your job?

Frankie Garnett: Pffft.

Will This Be It?
It's Still Locked In!
The referee has called for the bell!


Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of eight minutes and twenty seconds...Sean!

Bob Sinclair: And Sean ensures a playoff berth, even if he loses the rest of the way.

Frankie Garnett: Meanwhile, Moore has left the door open for Skabb to come back into the hunt! The Beta Division could be a lot closer than we think by the time tonight's over!
 

SGRaaize (5-6) vs. The Phoenix (8-3)
A Portugesa hits the speakers to a rousing chorus of jeers as the Tron displays the national flag of Portugal. Emerging from the entryway, he turns to salute his homeland's flag before calmly walking to the ring, ignoring the fans as he slides into the ring and bounces off the ropes a couple of times to stretch.

Amelia Williams: This bout is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Torres Vedras, Portugal, weighing 231 pounds...SGRaaize!

Bob Sinclair: The pressure's on Raaize now. A win and he's still technically in the Alpha Division hunt. A loss and Templeton locks up the division, being three matches ahead of everyone with only two to go.

Frankie Garnett: He's facing a choke artist, Bob. The win is as good as assured.

The opening chords of "The Instinct" hit as the entryway is bathed in a fiery orange light. Twin pillars of flame erupt from the entrance stage, one per side, as The League's largest member walks to the ring. As he approaches the steps, he pauses, bowing his head for a few seconds before taking a deep breath and releasing a shout to the skies above as he climbs onto the apron and steps between the ropes.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from the End of Nowhere, weighing 337 pounds...this is The Phoenix!

Bob Sinclair: Almost feels weird not saying "Gamma Division Leader" when talking about him this season.

Frankie Garnett: Cheater.

Bob Sinclair: Seriously, Frankie, give it a rest!

Maxx Skabb (6-5) vs. Scott Stevens (6-5)
Disturbed's "The Night" blares throughout the arena as spotlights begin to pan over the audience, as if looking for someone. A dim red light shines on the entryway, revealing a hulking figure making his way to ringside. As the refrain hits, the spotlights immediately focus on him as white strobe lights flash on the entrance stage. He slides under the bottom rope, his orange jumpsuit a stark contrast to most of the clothing in the audience as the song fades into silence.

Amelia Williams: This contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from the Orange County Correctional Facility, weighing 289 pounds...Maxx Skabb!

Bob Sinclair: With Moore losing earlier, Skabb has a shot at getting back into the Beta Division race here. A win puts him one back with two to go, easily within striking distance.

Frankie Garnett: He's got to get past The League's true star, though!

The lights in the arena go pitch black, as red lasers and spotlights light up the area. The video screen lights up and flashes across the screen, "Nothing survives my sting!" Over the audio system a snippet of Dave Mustaine from the song "Scorpion" yells, "I am the Scorpion whoah!!!" This causes the crowd to start booing as Scorpion's old MMA theme hits the speakers, and the man in question walks to the ring wearing a gi and a towel over his head, shadow boxing and kicking the whole way.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, representing the John Creed Shadow Mixed Martial Arts Dojo, from Houston, Texas, weighing 265 pounds..."The Scorpion" Scott Stevens!

Bob Sinclair: Somehow, Frankie, I don't foresee that being a problem.

Frankie Garnett: You're writing off Stevens that easily?

Bob Sinclair: Indeed I am. You're a gambling man, Frankie...I'll give you five to one on $20. If Stevens wins, you get $100 from me. When Skabb wins, I get $20 from you. What do you say?

Frankie Garnett: Only a fool would pass easy money up, Bob. You're on!

Bob Sinclair: Arrogance kills, Frankie. I present Exhibit A.
 

Thor Hammerskald (3-8) vs. Johnny Triumph (7-4)
Frankie Garnett: (growls in frustration)

Amon Amarth's "Death in Fire" hits the speakers, to a decent ovation as the League rookie emerges from backstage, looking every bit the part of a Viking warrior as he strides to the ring with a determined look on his face.

Amelia Williams: This is our main event of the evening, scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Oslo, Norway, weighing 310 pounds...Thor Hammerskald!

Bob Sinclair: Hammerskald's hopes of the postseason are already done, but he can put a serious damper on his opponent's plans tonight.

Frankie Garnett: With his track record? Heh, no chance.

A remixed version of "Ecstasy of Gold" hits the speakers, which is nearly drowned out in jeers as he emerges from the entryway, a rain of golden sparks falling behind him as he walks to the ring with a confident look on his face. Instead of taking the steps closest to him, he walks around to the opposite side of the ring, drawing in more jeers as he finally climbs the steps and enters the ring.

Amelia Williams: His opponent, from Des Moines, Iowa, weighing 228 pounds, he is the current Delta Division leader...Johnny Triumph!

Bob Sinclair: A win here all but seals the division for Triumph, putting him two matches ahead of Stevens with two to go.

Frankie Garnett: But not a clinch?

Bob Sinclair: No, Stevens and Maynard have a rematch next week, and the result of that match will largely go towards the result of the divisional race.

Frankie Garnett: Oh, so this is just jockeying for position. Got it.
