Episode #4 of Texas Championship Wrestling:
Angle, Shane, and Stephanie all make their way out to the ring as the crowd boos extremely loudly.
They say you can't fool all the people all the time, but last night we fooled everyone. At the Deadly Games, TCW finally got the champion that it so longly deserved. A champion who will bring honor to TCW, a champion who we all can be proud of, our corporate champion.
As Shane hands the mic to Angle a chant of "You Sold Out" begins.
You people can chant that all you want, but anyone in my situation would have done the exact same thing, it's true, it's damn true. We can't risk the TCW title falling into the hands of a buffoon like the Big Show, or a degenerate like CM Punk.
A "CM Punk" echos through the arena.
Chant his name all you want, CM Punk will never ever be TCW champion again.
A "**** You Stephanie" chant begins.
You're right Steph, because I'm never going to lose this...
Punk! CM Punk is here!
What's he doing here? He shouldn't show his face around here after last night...
The three in the ring look like someone just shot their dog, quickly Shane's frown turns back into a smile.
So Punk, are you here to congratulate the new champion?
Angle I'll get to you later, but first you and I have business to take care of Shane! Last night you screwed me Shane, and I'm not the type of man to take that lightly.
No Punk, I didn't screw you, you screwed yourself. You honestly think I would ever allow my company to have a champion like you?
Here's the deal Shane, you give me a match with you are I make your life a living hell.
Is that a threat?
No it's a promise.
Will my answer is no! You will not be having a match with me.
So be it, watch your back Steph...
The segment ends with Punk leaving the ring. When we get back from commercial Ben Dover is already in the ring as Evolutions music hits..
Randy Orton vs. Ben Dover:
Orton dominates Dover through out the short match. It ends with Orton punting Dover for a knock out victory. After the match ends Orton grabs a mic.
Goldberg you learned last night what happens when you mess with Evolution. I would understand if you never want to show your...
The crowd pops as Goldberg sprints to the ring. Goldberg quickly spears all three members of Evolution.
Evolution you're next!
The Goldberg chants continue as he exits the ring.
No one has been able to beat Goldberg in a match yet, but challenging the entire group of Evolution seems like suicide.
Yeah but he doesn't seem worried in the least.
Kofi Kingston vs. Albert:
Kofi comes out to a very positive crowd reaction, Albert then comes out to mostly boos. The match gets under way with Albert having the upper hand. Kofi counters a move and starts to get some offense in but it's short lived. Albert gets Kofi up for the Albert Bomb when...
What... what's going on?
That's Paul Bearer, and he has that monster with him again.
Bearer and the monster enters the ring and flames come out of the ring posts. The monster then grabs both Albert and Kofi by the neck and hits them with a double chokeslam. He then kicks Albert out of the ring and throws Kofi out with ease.
I told all of you that I had a plan. I told all of you that I would be laughed at for the last time. I told all of you that I would destroy the Ultimate Warrior. Let me introduce to you the man who is responsible for all of this, KANE! You see Kane is going to destroy TCW from the inside out. He's going to rid it of fakes like the Ultimate Warrior until Kane and I are the only ones left standing. There will be a path of destruction everywhere we go. And there is no one who can stop us.
Out comes Matt Borne with a clown mask similar to Pennywise from the movie It.
Bearer you say you're done being laughed at, well this is no laughing matter. See I've been laughed at my entire life, and now I'm the one doing the laughing hahaha. Do you know what happens to a kid who never had any friends growing up, a kid who's father would rather spend time at the bar than with his own son? Do you Kane? Well it's like that old saying... that that doesn't kill you simply makes you stranger.
Borne takes off the clown mask and reveals his face to be half painted in clown make-up.
I've never been giving anything in my life. Growing up I was given nothing, and here I didn't even get a qualifying match in the tournament. But that's all fine, they make think it's a joke but the real joke is going to be the one that I play. See Kane you took out the Ultimate Warrior, you put yourself on the map, and for me to put myself on the map I must do the same. So I'm offering you a challenge, at the next PPV, me vs. you inside the place where we both feel the most at home, HELL IN A CELL!
Clown you may all think this is one big choke, but getting inside Hell In A Cell with my monster Kane is no laughing matter. We accept, but don't be surprised if the night ends with everyone seeing the tears of a clown.
Borne just laughs uncontrollable as he makes his way into the back.
When we return from commercial Big Show is standing in the ring.
Stephanie, you screwed me last night. And I will not leave this ring until I get what I deserve, and that's my title shot against Angle! So you come out here right now and give me my title shot!
Instead of Stephanie coming out Shane and Angle do.
You're right about one thing Big Show, you were screwed last night, but it wasn't by us, it was by yourself.
You honestly think they would chose and over grown gorilla to be there champion instead of an Olympic hero?
I don't no anything about that, but what I do know is that if I don't get my title shot in 10 seconds both of you are going to get the WMD.
Kurt is very tired still from his grueling battles, so he is not ready to compete tonight. But this is what I will do for you, if you can win this gauntlet match, I will give you a title shot against Kurt at the next PPV. And here's your first opponent.
As Rikishi makes his way to the ring Shane and Angle head to announce table and kick out Tenay and Cole.
Oh you are in for a treat ladies and gentleman, for tonights main event you will get to listen to the world class commentary of myself and the TCW champion, your olympic hero, Kurt Angle. Kurt how do you like the Big Show's chances in this match?
He can't really do much worse than he did last night, it doesn't matter either way, no one is taking the belt from me.
Rikishi enters the ring and Big Show quickly hits him with the WMD for the quick three count.
It's fine that's only one guy...
Viscera comes into the ring and the same thing happens, Big Show hits him with the WMD and gets the quick three count. The crowd is really hot at this point.
Shane I thought you hand picked these guys, what is going on? Please tell me this last guy will beat him.
I... I didn't expect him to get through both Rikishi and Viscera...
Who's the last guy???
No, this most be some type of joke...
Bourne jumps from the top rope and Big Show catches him by the neck, he then hits him with the Show Stopper for the victory.
Your winner and number one contender for the TCW title, the Big Show!
What.. what just happened? I have to face the Big Show?
How can this night get any worse?
The camera cuts to the back to show Punk and Stephanie in a room. Punk has her up on his shoulders preparing for a GTS.
My demands have changed Shane, I still want my match with you, but if I win I want a shot at the winner of Angle/Big Show. Or else Steph is going to sleep.
Fine Punk, fine you have your match, just don't hurt Stephanie.
Oh Stephanie is going to be fine, but they same can't be said for you and Kurt.
Shane and Kurt turn around and Big Show hits both of them with the WMD.
