This was a fantastic competition. I'm very glad the two of you made the finals. Great job, gentlemen!
Thank you to everyone who played a part in making this one of the more enjoyable drafts I've been a part of. I've had a lot of bad things going on in life the past few weeks - this was a distraction from all of that and helped get me through to a better place. Thank you, all.
Dark Matches: The Hurricane (Kacy Catanzaro) vs. MsChif - Going back to our first shows and first PPV, Kacy has been valiant on most nights but except for an 8-woman tag, has not found a victory. That changes here as she upsets MsChif and also in the process gets a bit of respect as well.
Street Profits vs. Dark Carnival (EVIL & BUSHI) - Things are the opposite for the Street Profits as they get embarrassed very quickly by the reuniting Los Ingobernables de Carnival.
Mia Yim vs. Emma Dashwood - Very clean back and forth match that Mia Yim is able to pull out at the last second.
Main Show Sami Zayn vs. El Generico (Jay Lethal) - Sami is pissed that once again someone is using a gimmick he refuses to acknowledge and gives Lethal a brutal beatdown. Jay gets a few hope spots and almost steals the win a time or two, but Sami is able to pull out the win.
Varsity Foundation vs. European Union - #1 Contender’s Match - The EU continues their dominating run and there's a bit of miscommunication between Rotunda and Taylor, but nothing major. The EU looks to be primed for their title match.
Trent Baretta & Michelle McCool vs. Tom Zenk & Taylor Wilde - Trent & Michelle make it their goal to embarrass Zenk and they basically accomplish that as McCool is able to pin Zenk as Trent holds Wilde back after Paul E. hits Zenk with a telephone.
Steve Austin vs. Cody Rhodes - This shows signs of both being a technical masterpiece and brutal bloodbath, but neither actually connects as Paul E. and the rest of the Alliance convince Cody & Austin to put aside their differences for the better of the group.
Dark Carnival (Jake, Bray, Paige, & AJ) vs. The Light Brigade (DDP, Colt Cabana, Dakota Kai, & Tegan Nox): WarGames - No one holds back and we see all 8 people showcased throughout the match. Everyone gets busted open. There's a few points where DDP is on the verge of getting someone to submit but there's always a save. One of those is interesting as Paige holds back a split second from saving AJ and AJ notices this, but Paige winds up saving AJ. Meanwhile Jake & Bray have worn down Tegan & Dakota which allows a brutal beatdown on Colt who has no choice but to give up.
For anyone interested, the original concept Lizz and I were going to go for was going to be blind submissions. Meaning we'd each own half the roster, come up with a format for the event (? v. ? for the world title) then we'd each submit half the participants without knowing who the other would have submitted. I thought it would've led to some interesting match-ups.
I see that my error was relying too much on the UK scene and other Indy’s, which I understand aren’t as popular.
Hopefully some of the names I drafted will have successful careers. One to look out for is Ilja Dragunov, he’s a Russian that usually performs in Germany (same promotion that Walter came from). He’s recently signed for NXT UK so if you a chance to check anyone out, he’s probably the one I’d recommend.
If I’m invited to play along again, I definitely will pick up my game as I’ve learnt from this loss.

*Fade in to PWW General Manager William Regal's office, where we find Melina DUSTING~! the desk and shelves, since it's been so long since anyone was in here. PWW General Manager William Regal is SUPERVISING~! the work...
Melina: So because I'm Latina, I'm the maid? You know I'm suing for this, right?
Regal: Of course it's not because you're Latina, dear! That would be racist.
Regal: It's because Charly Caruso was too busy and you're the only other non-wrestling woman around here.
Melina: A couple of things: 1. Fuck. 2: You. 3. I'm only a "non-wrestling" woman because you haven't given me a match.
Regal: Fine. If you can beat any two of the women in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a PWW Women's Title Contract from Prestige Worldwide Wrestling's upcoming pay-per-view, Money in the Bankapalooza 19, in a Handicap Match, right now, you can replace one of them in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a PWW Women's Title Contract at Prestige Worldwide Wrestling's upcoming pay-per-view, Money in the Bankapalooza 19.
Regal: *to the camera* Right then. Onto other business. Prestige Worldwide Wrestling's upcoming pay-per-view, Money in the Bankapalooza 19, will feature four Money in the Bank Matches. There will be a contract suspended above the ring for the PWW Heavyweight, Women's, Intercontinental, and Tag Team Championships. Since it would be an unseemly abuse of general managerial power to insert myself in any of those matches, I will instead thrill the PWW Universe by defeating current PWW Heavyweight Champion Kevin Owens in a No Holds Barred Match!
*The door opens, and PWW Superstar "Rowdy" Roddy Piper walks in...
Piper: Hey, Willie. How's it goin?
Regal: Fine, Roddy. I was just telling the PWW Univer--
Piper: Yeah. I heard. There's TVs all over this place. Hey, you got that contract all ready for KO to sign? I can take it over there for ya.
Regal: Oh. How kind. Here you go.
*Regal hands Piper the contract. Piper opens the folder, flips a few pages, smiles, and leaves. Suddenly, out of nowhere, without warning, Piper approaches PWW Heavyweight Champion Kevin Owens...
Piper: Hey, Owens. Regal needs you to sign this to make your match at Prestige Worldwide Wrestling's upcoming pay-per-view, Money in the Bankapalooza 19, official.
Owens: Sure, Hot Rod.
*Owens signs the contract...
Piper: Can I borrow that pen?
*Owens hands him the pen just as David Otunga walks by...
Piper: Dave, my boy. Just the man I wanted to see. Get over here and have a look at this.
*Piper scribbles furiously on the contract as Otunga approaches...
Piper: I made changes here, here, and here. You're my witness. Sign here.
*Otunga signs where indicated and hands the contract back to Piper, who also signs...
Piper: And that makes it official. Owens, it's you and me in a No Holds Barred Match at Prestige Worldwide Wrestling's upcoming pay-per-view, Money in the Bankapalooza 19. See you there.
*Cut to PWW General Manager William Regal's office, where we find PWW General Manager William Regal SEETHING~! over what just transpired...
Regal: *seethe seethe seethe* Well, I guess it's unseemly abuse of general managerial power after all. I'm taking Piper's spot in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a PWW Heavyweight Title Contract at Prestige Worldwide Wrestling's upcoming pay-per-view, Money in the Bankapalooza 19.
Melina: One question.
Regal: *sigh* What?
Melina: How are you going to fit all those ladders into briefcases?
Kickoff Match – Doug Williams & Nick Aldis over Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable, Benjamin leaves without Gable afterwards, Mr. Hughes was out to watch Aldis & Williams, and handed them Shane McMahon's business card before leaving
ONE Tournament Quarterfinal – Finn Balor over Owen Hart to advance
The Revival (Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson) over The Von Erich Legacy (Ross & Marshall Von Erich) via nefarious means
ONE Tournament Quarterfinal – Asuka pinned Bad News Brown clean to advance
Death Match – Mil Muertes (w/Catrina) beat Batista - Big Dave was ceremoniously "killed" by Muertes, and carried off by King Cuerno
ONE Tournament Quarterfinal – Cesaro pinned Yokozuna - Cesaro slammed Yoko, then hit the Gotch Piledriver to a monster pop to advance
Rick & Scott Steiner beat Masato Tanaka & Mike Awesome - Doomsday Bulldog spelled the end to this brutal affair that saw all four men beat the crap out of each other
ONE Tournament Quarterfinal – The Great Muta beat Bret Hart - the classic you'd expect, Bret ducked the mist, and the ref did too, but Muta pulls out the win in the end to advance
During a post-show locker room interview, Gable confronted Benjamin, and eventually challenged him to a match.
The overall environment was chaotic with concern over Batista's well-being after the Death Match. Most of the talent isn't familiar with the Lucha Underground way of life and weren't sure what to think.
Asuka's win over Bad News Brown was a huge one, and Bad News was in a bad mood, as you can imagine. He was seen talking to Mike Awesome and Masato Tanaka, and all three left together (still in their gear).
During the press conference, Bret Hart and Owen Hart both were happy that the internet liked their matches so much, but said it doesn't matter if you don't win. The Steiner Brothers interrupted, pointing out that THEY won, which led to some bickering.
Cesaro's Gotch Piledriver on Yokozuna was the talk of the wrestling world, but to Cesaro it was just another thing. He kept pestering Dashbee about his next round opponent, and with Batista out Dash just made the call.
ONE Tournament Semifinal Matches: Cesaro vs. Asuka and The Great Muta vs. Finn Balor.
Ross & Marshall Von Erich are finishing up a voicemail to their dad when Lana & Zelina Vega approach, we can't we what they're talking about, but they end up leaving arm in arm, followed by Val Venis who is ordering around the camera man who caught it all on film, before the feed cuts we hear Val say the next stop is "Catrina...and Mil."
There hasn't been an update on the condition of Batista, and no one can find King Cuerno.
After the Midnight Express leave the interview area, the crowd goes wild as The American Dream Dusty Rhodes comes out.
Dusty: Lemme start by saying I'm shocked and disappointed by the actions of my friend Magnum TA. I've tried to reach out and call him but he's refused to talk to me. I would almost like to accept his challenge for the World's Heavyweight Championship but I will not interfere with Ricky Steamboat's revenge. So that leaves me with the challenge from a young man named Tommasso Ciampa. Now I've seen you wrestle kid and there's no doubt you have a ton of talent. But I have been United States Champion before, I know what it takes to get to that level. So if you have the guts, I accept the open challenge.
This brings out a smirking Tommasso Ciampa. He shakes his head as he grabs a microphone.
Ciampa: This is a joke right? I came to this company to face the best of the best and my first match is against an over the hill, out of shape has been? Do yourself a favor old man, realize who you're talking to and back off before you get seriously hurt.
Dusty: This fat, out of shape broken down old man still has enough in the tank to whip your ass.
The two get nose to nose and look like they're about to come to blows before security comes out to separate them.
