THE LEAGUE: SEASON TWO PLAYOFFS
The interior of Estádio do Maracanã is packed full of both video monitors and fans as an announced crowd of 41,218 let their voices be heard in the summer air. Pyro explodes from the roof of the arena, marking the start of the final week of League action this season as we head to ringside and our three-person commentary team.

Bob Sinclair: It's the most exciting time of the season, folks...it's playoff time! Welcome back to The League, ladies and gentlemen! Bob Sinclair, sitting at ringside alongside my long-time colleague Frankie Garnett and the host of Beyond Ringside, Tori Montgomery. This is it; by the end of the night one of these six participants will be crowned our second League Champion!

Frankie Garnett: I've got my money on Tarik Nolan, Bob. The man has dominated both of the other members of the Gamma Division who are here tonight, I don't see him letting up now, not this close to his goal.

Bob Sinclair: Tori?

Tori Montgomery: I know I picked Phoenix to win, but I was backstage earlier and it sounds like Phoenix might be a bit under the weather due to the climate change. I still think he's going to walk away with the prize, but it's going to be closer than we originally thought, Bob.
 

Quarterfinal #1: (3) Johnny Triumph v (6) Tarik Nolan
Bob Sinclair: In any event, we're waited long enough. Let's go to the voice of the ring, Amelia Williams, to get us underway.

"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: This is our opening match of the night, a quarterfinal match scheduled for the best two out of three falls! Introducing first, from Shreveport, Louisiana, weighing 292 pounds...Tarik Nolan!

Bob Sinclair: Nolan comes in as the second wild card, but many think that if he can escape the first round, he's got a good shot at the finals.

Frankie Garnett: Well, duh! If he wins here, he gets The Phoenix in round two, and Nolan beat Phoenix twice this season!

Tori Montgomery: What you're forgetting, Frankie, is that Nolan has to find a way to get to the second round. Triumph's not going to be a pushover.

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 Delta Division Champion...Johnny Triumph!

Tori Montgomery: I don't know about you gentlemen, but I can feel the electricity in this arena tonight!

Frankie Garnett: That's because of all the video feeds, Tori.

Tori Montgomery: ...That's not what I meant.

Bob Sinclair: Do I have to separate you two already?

Quarterfinal #2: (4) Nuclear Templeton v (5) Sean
Bob Sinclair: ABP?

Frankie Garnett: Anyone but Phoenix.

Tori Montgomery: Oy...

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: This is our second quarterfinal match, scheduled for the best two out of three falls! Introducing first, from Charlotte, North Carolina, weighing 230 pounds...Sean!

Bob Sinclair: Sean has one advantage that no one else here has, and that is playoff experience. Sean was the third-place finisher last season, so he knows what this atmosphere is like.

Tori Montgomery: He's also come up through an incredibly tough Gamma Division, Bob, so if anyone is primed to make an upset, it's this man.

Frankie Garnett: Who cares? I'm down three grand!

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: His opponentm from Atlantic City, New Jersey, weighing 278 pounds, he is the Alpha Division Champion...Nuclear Templeton!

Tori Montgomery: Then maybe you'll learn to stop gambling, you dolt!

Semifinal #1: (3) Johnny Triumph v (2) Sebastian Moore
Bob Sinclair: Speaking f long nights, it's time for our first semifinal match of the evening. Amelia, take it away!

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: This is our first semifinal match, scheduled for the best two out of three falls! Introducing first, from Des Moines, Iowa, weighing 228 pounds, he is the Delta Division champion...Johnny Triumph!

Frankie Garnett: He's still got his work cut out for him, given the track record of his opponent this season.

Bob Sinclair: Triumph looks ready, in any event, for his opponent to come out.

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: His opponent, from Manchester, England, weighing 237 pounds, he is the Beta Division Champion...Sebastian Moore!

Frankie Garnett: Holy crap, guys, I don't think I've ever seen Moore this focused on a match.

Semifinal #2: (5) Sean v (1) The Phoenix
Tori Montgomery: We're about to find out. Amelia?

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: This is our second semifinal contest, scheduled for the best two out of three falls! Introducing first, from Charlotte, North Carolina, weighing 230 pounds...Sean!

Bob Sinclair: This is going to be a good match; both men know each other extremely well after this season.

Tori Montgomery: But this is the most important match of the three, Bob. The winner here has a shot at the League Championship!

Frankie Garnett: Sean, I beg you, beat this fool in five minutes. Please!


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, he is the Gamma Division Champion...this is The Phoenix!

Frankie Garnett: And so the cheater emerges—

Tori Montgomery: Phoenix is a true comeback story this season, coming back from dead last a season ago to claim the #1 playoff seed this season.

Frankie Garnett: YES!

Amelia Williams: Here is your winner, at a time of twenty-one minutes even...Sean!

Bob Sinclair: And Sean pulls off what many would consider an upset, Tori!

Frankie Garnett: I told you guys, anyone but Phoenix! I told you!
 

5th Place Consolation: (6) Tarik Nolan v (4) Nuclear Templeton
Bob Sinclair: No one likes a braggart, Frankie.

Frankie Garnett: I don't care! Phoenix isn't winning, and all is right with the world!

Tori Montgomery: Can we cut his microphone off and head to the ring already?

Bob Sinclair: Good idea.

"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: This is a fifth-place consolation match, scheduled for the best two out of three falls! Introducing first, from Shreveport, Louisiana, weighing 292 pounds...Tarik Nolan!

Frankie Garnett: Here comes the victim of a travesty of justice—

Tori Montgomery: Seriously, Frankie, give it up. You lost your bet, so suck it up and call the match.

Bob Sinclair: Thank you, Tori.

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: His opponent, from Atlantic City, New Jersey, weighing 278 pounds...Nuclear Templeton!

Bob Sinclair: Templeton was essentially embarrassed by Sean in the first round, and looks to take out his anger on Nolan here.

Frankie Garnett: Not happening. Nolan's going to make this quick.

Tori Montgomery: I disagree. I think Templeton's got the edge here.

Frankie Garnett: What about that fast count to end the match?! Does no one care about—

 

3rd Place Consolation Match: (2) Sebastian Moore vs (1) The Phoenix
Bob Sinclair: No, Frankie. We don't.

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 is a third-place consolation match, scheduled for the best two out of three falls! Introducing first, from Manchester, England, weighing 237 pounds...Sebastian Moore!

Tori Montgomery: This is not the result Moore was expecting coming in to tonight, gentlemen.

Bob Sinclair: Nonetheless, his night is far from over as we await his opponent.

Frankie Garnett: The cheater...

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: So, Tori, your impression of Phoenix's comeback run?

Tori Montgomery: I'll be interested to see if I continues next season, especially with his wife coming to join him in his corner.

Frankie Garnett: And that's not an unfair advantage how?

Bob Sinclair: Frankie, give it a rest.

Frankie Garnett: I can!
 

CHAMPIONSHIP: (5) Sean vs (3) Johnny Triumph
Bob Sinclair: Hence, "in their right mind."

Frankie Garnett: ...hey!

The bell sounds.

Amelia Williams: Ladies and gentlemen, this match, scheduled for the best two out of three falls, is for the League Championship!

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: Introducing first, from Charlotte, North Carolina, weighing 230 pounds...Sean!

Bob Sinclair: It would be a feather in Sean's cap to walk away with the Championship after being bounced early in the playoffs last season.

Frankie Garnett: I don't care who wins, my pick is gone and Phoenix lost, so I'm just going to watch!

Tori Montgomery: Pair of submission wrestlers meeting in the finals, this could be quite interesting.

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...Johnny Triumph!

Tori Montgomery: Guys, 'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Triumph walks away with this one.

Frankie Garnett: $100 says you're wrong!

Bob Sinclair: Frankie, seriously, knock it—

Tori Montgomery: Done, if it will shut you up, Frankie.
