FTWO PRESENTS: APOCALYPSE!
Live from Madison Square Garden
Flashes on the Mega-tron
To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away
To the rhythm of the awful rusted machines
We toss and turn but don't sleepGoing the Distance 2008 wrote:Going the Distance then cuts backstage, and Andrew Pearson is shown still in street clothes walking towards his locker room when suddenly he is hit from behind....with a ball bat. When the camera swings, the person on the other end is NOT the person we thought we would see, but is The Assassin Chris Desmond himself! He takes several more shots at Pearson before handing the bat off to someone and picks Pearson up so they are nose to nose.
Desmond: Forgot about me didn't you? Did you think you could walk into a top title match in THIS fed this easily?
Each breath we take makes us thieves
Like causes without rebelsSeptember 22nd Unchained wrote:Alzy lifts Andrew and the two trade punches. Andrew takes the upper hand and forces Alzy to the ropes. Pearson whips him across the ring and hits the floor. As Alzy runs over the top of him, Andrew gets back up and meets Hawkshaw with a massive right hand uppercut. Andrew covers.
Just talk but promise nothing else
We crawl on our knees for youDecember 15th Destruction wrote:Desmond struggles to get to his knees and elbows Mc in the gut a couple of times. With Mc in bent over position, he lifts him up and hits an inverted atomic drop sending him back a couple of feet. He takes advantage and runs forward hitting a spear, which he follows with quick rights and lefts to the face. The ref rushes over to count but Desmond wont stop, ignoring the ref along the way.
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for youDecember 1st Unchained wrote:Cam then puts Cassidys boot on the bottom rope, and the referee stops the count!! Alzy looks at Cam furiously, and Cam just taunts him. This distraction proves costly for Alzy though, as Kyle comes from behind, and locks on the Dragon Clutch!! Alzys arms flail in desperation, and Cassidy gets the hold sunk in deeper. Kyle then pulls back, putting even more pressure on the hold!! Alzy has no choice, and pounds his hand on the mat.
But we sow seeds to see us throughDecember 29th Unchained wrote:The two combatants work their way to their feet in opposite corners. Daniels sees his opportunity, and charges across the ring for a spear! Aaron moves out of the way in just the knick of time, but Travis manages to avoid running headlong into the turnbuckle. He taps his head, having outsmarted his opponent, and turns around, only to be hit with a massive flying headbutt to the stomach! Aaron Mc is fired up, and calls for a second PING! The crowd pops huge- but Travis comes to life and hits a massive spear out of the corner! Daniels measures his opponent, waiting for him to get to his feet. Aaron musters his strength and kips up- only to be slammed HARD back to the mat with the Nothing Special! Travis goes for the cover[/i]
Though sometimes dreams just don't come trueGoing the Distance 2008 wrote:Raynes uses the double-leg takedown... leg lock! It's locked in tight, and with that chain wrapped around the ropes, there's nowhere for Eric to go! The challenger is absolutely writhing in pain, and in fact, there is obvious bruising already around his neck from the hanging earlier, but the rabid Andrew Raynes is hanging on for dear life and putting as much pressure on Eric's legs as possible! Eric is fading as the ref keeps asking if Eric's ready to tap...and finally, after about twenty odd seconds, Eric's hand hits the mat over and over again! It's over!
We wait to reap what we are due
To the rhythm of a time bomb ticking awayJanuary 12th Destruction wrote:Suddenly, "Darkness of the Unknown" by Yoko Shimomura hits the speakers as the symbol of Organization XIII and the nobodies from Kingdom Hearts II appears on the Tron. Out from the back walks a man in a shining silver bodysuit and a black mask that covers his entire head with the same symbol that's showing on the Tron on the front of his mask. This man has a mic and motions for his music to be cut as Raynes steps out onto the apron, glaring at the figure on the stage.
Winfield: Who the hell is this?
Maschke: Judging by the symbol, I'd say this is the guy behind those weird messages we've seen the past few weeks.
The man taps the mic to make sure its on, then begins to speak.
???: Andrew Raynes... are you afraid of the unknown? Can you face the unknown? At Apocalypse... we'll find out.
The fans start to buzz with anticipation.
???: I... am Nobody. But I will become a somebody after I take what you hold so dear.
"Darkness of the Unknown" starts playing again as the man drops the mic and walks to the back.
And the blare of the sirens combing the streets
Chased down like dogs we run fromPatriot Games 2008 wrote:Spade can't believe it as the referee tells him it was only two. spade then picks up Wilz, and hooks him for the Reality Cutter!! Spade runs up the turnbuckles, but instead of completing the cutter, Wilz urns and throws Spade into Steel, sending Steel crashing through the ropes to the floor!! Wilz picks up spade and lifts him up in a powerbomb, and that precise moment, Ulrich springboards off the top rope perfectly with a diving clothesline, and they nail the Meltdown!!! The crowd erupts in cheers as Wilz makes the cover
Your grasp until the sun comes up
We crawl on our knees for youJanuary 12th Destruction wrote:Banks has control of the arm in a painful wrench at a debilitating angle. Wilz cries out in pain, but reaches the ropes. He gets to the ropes and tags Ulrich in. Ulrich gets in quick and takes Jay down with a quick clothesline. Gracie really wants Banks to go for the tag. Ulrich picks Banks up and throws him back into their corner where Kross takes a shot at him which prompts Gracie to get onto the apron. Christian gets into the ring to try and calm his sister down, and the referee tells him to get out. Meanwhile Wilz has come into the ring and the two men are double teaming Banks. Herrera comes in to stop them, but Kross goes in with a spear to Herrera
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for youDecember 15th Destruction wrote:Williams then makes a mad dash with the little strength he has left to get the tag into Kennedy! Blood Reign then makes the tag to Syn. They both come running at each other, and Skyler goes for a clothesline, but Kennedy ducks. Kennedy then takes her down with a spinebuster. He mounts her and starts to deliver a series of blows, before getting off her and posing to the crowd who clearly approves of his actions.
But we sow seeds to see us throughPatriot Games 2008 wrote:Volt and Cam exchange lefts and rights before Cam slams Volts head in to the top turnbuckle pad. Cam leaps off the top rope and hits a rolling power-bomb on Volt. Cam keeps Volts legs held under his shoulders as he angles Volt up for the Most Fantastic Stuff. Volt writhes in pain from all of the beating his back has taken in the match. Nolen lifts his hand, and reaches out, realizing there are no ropes around him. Volt raises his hand again to tap out but tries to hold on for a little longer to get to the ropes. As Volt drops his hand to tap
Though sometimes dreams just don't come true
Look now at what they've done to you
White needles buried in the redGoing the Distance 2008 wrote:A loud thud is then heard, the sound reminiscent of a steel chair impacting a person's head. A second shot is heard, and the lights finally come up. Cam Davitt is down on the mat, being beaten by Alzy!! The crowd is in a stunned silence, and Alzy hits Cam twice more in the back. Alzy hasn't even washed himself of his own blood, as his hair has a red tinge to it, and some of his wounds are still bleeding out.
Styles: What the?!.....
Wilson: Has Alzy lost his mind?
Alzy hits another shot to the head of Cam, who is lying on the mat, barely moving. Alzy then drops the steel chair and slides out of the ring, looking under it. He pulls out a sledgehammer, then looks at Cam with almost a look of hatred. He then slides back in the ring, going around to Cam's head. He screams obscenities at Cam, and then slowly lifts the sledgehammer high over his head.
Styles: What the hell is he doing? He'll kill him!
Alzy looks down into Cam's glazed over eyes, and says something else, but it's inaudible. Before he can swing the sledgehammer though, Troy Poole slides into the ring and grabs the hammer out of his hands!! Troy pulls Alzy away and out of the ring, while Lynn tends to Cam, all the while screaming "What the hell is wrong with you?!" Candice has also rushed to the ring, and looks at Alzy with a terrified expression on her face, and then turns to tend to Cam as well.
The engine roars and then it gives
But never diesDecember 15th Destruction wrote:The crowd half erupts in cheers, while the other half ponders what Alzy means. Lynn tells Alzy to keep his mouth shut, but Alzy doesn't seem to care.
Alzy: No, I'm not gonna keep my mouth shut! God, I can't believe you're still protecting Cam even after what he did to me!
Winfield: Somebody cut Alzy's mic please?
Alzy: Yeah you know what I'm talkin about Lynn. What happened in Edmonton. And what I saw happen with my very eyes six weeks ago. When that son of a bitch...
Alzy then turns with a look of disgust towards Candice.
Alzy: And this tramp right here, the girl I loved, and the girl I thought loved me, started knockin boots!
The crowd erupts in shock. Cam looks at Candice, and then Candice looks at Alzy who is seething. Lynn looks like she's about burst a vein in her forehead, and Troy looks at Cam and Candice, and shakes his head.
'Cuz we don't live
We just survive
On the scraps that you throw awayDecember 29th Unchained wrote:Odin: One more thing before Im done. Brewster, Caedes you better look like finding me someone to wrestle at Apocalypse. I do have a rematch clause and I damn well intend to use it. I dont give a damn who you throw in front of me.
Odin tosses the mic to a crew member and starts to leave the ring, his music playing over a cheering yet somewhat confused crowd. Suddenly his theme cuts off and Cat Scratch Fever starts to play. Odin stops in his tracks and glares at the top of the ramp, where General Manager Lynn Brewster appears, drawing boos and jeers from the crowd. She grabs a mic and climbs in the ring She walks right up to Odin, who doesnt back down a bit.
Lynn: You know, the last time I looked, I run this company not you. You think you can DEMAND I find you an opponent at the snap of my fingers for Apocalypse?
Odin: Don't f*beep*king mess with me, Lynn! Everyone here knows damn well you can snap your fingers around here and get just about anything you please. It'd be no problem for you to find someone in that locker room back there who thinks he's man enough to face me for that championship. Or woman enough... how about you, Lynn? We all know you've fought for world titles while running a company before. Or are you to afraid to, because you know I'll just beat you - again?
Lynn can be seen trying to not buy into Odins words. She turns from Odin (not a smart move but one she has to take).
Styles: She cant do it! It was a year ago that .well Caedes almost killed her.
Wilson: How stupid are you? Lynns been wrestling, just not here.
Styles: But she swore that she would only run FTWO, not .participate very often.
Lynn turns back to Odin, about to give her answer when Burn In Hell starts.
Styles, confused: What? Thats Troys old music.
Troy Poole appears and makes his way down to the ring. He climbs in and takes the mic from Lynn, who looks at him a bit stunned that hes there. He then looks Odin up and down, and nothing but gets nothing but a look of annoyance in return. Finally he ignores Odin and looks at Lynn.
Troy: You seem to forget friend that you do know someone who deserves that title as much as ..
Troy just looks at Odin with utter disgust. Odin returns the look with his own, one of annoyance.
Troy: As he does.
Lynn gives Troy a perplexed look.
Troy: Come on, I know you arent this stupid, despite what they say. Remember back in May, before Insurgence when he beat someone close to YOU for the FTWO World title? Someone who hasnt said shit about getting another shot? Think Lynn, you know who.
A puzzled look is on Lynns face, but it changes to a smile as she realizes precisely who he means. But before she can say anything I Dont Wanna Stop plays and Ron Caedes appears.
Styles: Wow, busy night for the management around here.
Wilson: Well having your top champion take off doesnt help things. We should be grateful we got such a good owner and general manager that can think on their feet.
Styles: You want to get your nose out of their butts now?
Ron comes down to the ring and climbs in, smiling at Lynn and Troy and then actually smiling at Odin.
Styles: Odin better be grateful that Ron doesnt just rip him apart now.
Wilson: Why? He knows a good match when he hears it.
Ron: So let me get this straight, make sure the facts are right. So Odin, you arent particular who you get at Apocalypse, right?
Ron: And Troy, you never got your rematch, right?
Troy nods with a smile at Odin, who just rolls his eyes as if to say why me. Ron looks at Lynn.
Odin: Wait a second, didn't I kick his ass already?
Ron: Then you'll have no complaint in doing it again. Because we got the main event of Apocalypse standing in this ring, its simple. We have Odin Knyght versus Troy Poole.
I won't crawl on my knees for youJanuary 12th Destruction wrote:Chad rolls his eyes, and in the ring Cam has Odin grounded in a front face lock. Odin is able to get to his knees though, and hits a stiff shot to the ribs, then a second. Odin is able to get to his feet and then takes Cam over with a northern lights suplex!! Odin bridges up for the pin, and gets a quick two count. Both men get to their feet, Odin a step quicker than Cam, and Cam charges at Odin. Odin bends down though and sends Cam sky high with a back body drop!! Cam grabs at his lower back as he gets to his feet, and Odin then takes him over with a snap suplex! The crowd roars as Odin goes for a cover
I won't believe the lies that hide the truth
I won't sweat one more drop for you
'Cuz we are the rust upon your gearsJanuary 12th Destruction wrote:Alzy looks across the ring at Troy, and both shoot sly smirks at each other, before coming to the centre of the ring. They begin to circle each other, looking for an opening. Troy then shoots for a double leg takedown, but Alzy leaps over Troy avoiding it. Alzy then gets Troy in a waistlock, but Troy does a standing switch. Troy then shoves Alzy into the ropes and falls back, looking for a roll up. Alzy hooks the top rope though and Troy rolls backwards to his feet. Alzy then leaps up and springboards off the middle rope, looking to hit a crossbody! Troy sees this coming though and hits a dropkick right to the chest!! Alzy crumples down to the canvas, and Troy goes for a cover, and gets a quick two count. Troy then picks up Alzy and lifts him up for a body slam.
We are the insects in your ears
We crawl... all over you
We sow the seeds to see us through
Our days are precious and so few
We all reap what we are due
Under this sky no longer blue,
We bring a dawn long overdue
We crawl... all over you
