Cecilia Ryan vs. Alexander Redding vs. Solomon Richards vs. Ria Nightshade
As we cut back to ringside, we see that Solomon Richards, Ria Nightshade, and Cecilia Ryan are already in the ring while Alexander Redding is still on the outside.
Nick Stuart: We’re about to get underway with this one here, folks. Another Five Star Scramble with major championship implications!
Nick Stuart: Here we go!
As soon as the bell sounds, Ria takes off like a rocket and blasts Solomon with a shotgun dropkick, sending the big man back into the turnbuckles. Ria pops to her feet, but is immediately met by a spinning heel kick from Cecilia Ryan!
Meanwhile, Redding smirks and makes his way over to the commentary team and takes a seat.
Alexander Redding: What an atmosphere tonight! And look at that great action in the ring.
Nick Stuart: Aren’t you supposed to be in that ring?
Alexander Redding: It’s a fatal four way. There’s no ten counts or DQs. Don’t worry, I’ll be in there in just a moment.
Richard Parker: I think it’s a brilliant move! He’s keeping fresh!
Back in the ring, Cecilia is firing stiff, snapping Muay Thai knees into Ria’s midsection while holding her in a clinch. Solomon charges forward and knocks Cecilia back with a huge lariat! Once Ryan hits the canvas, Solomon turns back and boots Ria in the midsection and pulls her in for a belly to belly, but Cecilia snaps off a sharp kick to Solomon’s calf, causing him to weaken his grip.
Ria takes advantage of the opportunity, raking his eyes and following up with a nasty kick below the belt! Solomon crumbles to the canvas holding his family jewels.
Nick Stuart: That’s a blatant low blow from Ria Nightshade!
Richard Parker: There’s no DQ here, Nick. The Toxic Queen is definitely taking advantage of that early!
Alexander Redding: Man, what a match so far!
Nick Stuart: Are you just going to sit out here the whole time?
Cecilia moves forward and launches a kick at Ria, but the Hardcore Harlot snatches her and launches back into an exploder suplex! Ria pops up and moves in quickly, dragging Cecilia up by her hair. She hooks her head and snaps down with a DDT! Ria covers immediately!
Cecilia kicks out with authority as Solomon Richards rolls out of the ring. Richards shakes out the initial cobwebs of a rough start and then notices Redding sitting at commentary.
Nick Stuart: Uh oh, it looks like you’ve been noticed.
Alexander Redding: Yeah, but so has he!
As Solomon stomps forward, he gets blindsided by a baseball slide from Ria! The impact of her boots colliding with his head sends him to the floor and Ria spins back around, but eats a quick dropkick to the knee, sending her face first into the canvas!
Cecilia doesn’t hesitate on the follow up. She moves in and grabs a leg, whipping down into a kneebar submission hold!
Nick Stuart: Oh! Solomon is down on the floor and Ryan has that kneebar in on Ria!
Alexander Redding: Oh no you don’t!
Redding hops up, pulls off his headset and slides into the ring, stomping down on Cecilia and breaking the hold. He immediately bails back to the outside, but Solomon Richards is there! Richard snatches Redding and brings him up and over with a belly to belly on the floor!
Richards brings Redding to his feet and rolls him into the ring. Solomon follows him in and brings Redding to his feet, firing a forearm into his jaw. Solomon sends Redding into the far ropes. Red ducks under a clothesline attempt, hits the opposite ropes and collides with Richards, hitting a rolling heel kick.
Nick Stuart: And Redding is finally involved in this match!
Richard Parker: Hey, he was smart about biding his time!
Meanwhile, Ria has gotten back to her feet and is stalking Cecilia Ryan. Ryan ducks under a back fist from the Toxic Queen and fires in a heavy right hand! Ryan turns to see Red coming her way and swings, but Redding ducks under and whips her back with a snap dragon suplex! Redding covers!
NO! Solomon Richards breaks it up!
Red rolls off Cecilia and gets to his feet, but Ria is right there and she spews most right into Redding’s face! Ria boots Red in the gut and drives him down with a DDT! But Solomon is also right there and he snags Ria!
Nick Stuart: Cobra clutch! Solomon has it on Ria!
Richard Parker: This could be it!
Ria flails wildly, but Solomon’s size advantage is apparent and he lifts her and holds her in the air while clamping down on the hold! Unfortunately, he doesn’t see Cecilia Ryan as she springboards off the top rope and she clobbers him with a knee to the temple! Solomon drops Ria and turns around into a leaping enziguri from Redding!
Redding pops to his feet, still wiping gunk from his eyes, only for Cecilia to leap up and bring him over with a hurricanrana!
Nick Stuart: Tons of action in this one, and Redding is bailing again!
Richard Parker: I don’t blame him! It’s a good strategy, Nick!
Ria is back to her feet again and now Cecilia and the Toxic Queen are trading stiff, sharp shots in the middle of the ring. The crowd gets loud, respecting the exchange, until Richards mows both women down with a double clothesline! He stomps down on Ria, who rolls away, and then turns and clamps a camel clutch onto Cecilia!
Nick Stuart: Camel clutch! He’s wrenching back on that on Cecilia Ryan!
Redding slides into the ring and grabs Ria, twisting her legs and turning her over into a sharpshooter!
Richard Parker: The Stereotype! Redding has it!
The referee is looking back and forth at both men holding submissions. He goes back and forth checking on both Ria and Cecilia who both hang tough!
Nick Stuart: This is quite the predicament for the referee here!
Solomon drops his hold and rushes forward, clotheslining Redding, the momentum taking both men over the top rope to the outside.
Cecilia and Ria both crawl to the ropes, pulling themselves up. The glare at one another and charge forward. Ria ducks under an elbow from Cecilia and leaps up!
Richard Parker: Cold Kiss! She hit that code breaker!
Ria steps to the outside and climbs to the top turnbuckle! She leaps!
Nick Stuart: ACID RAI-NO! Ryan moved!
Cecilia rolls out of the way and Ria crashes and burns!
Cecilia pulls herself up and measures Ria. She rushes forward!
Nick Stuart: Flying double knees!
Ria staggers out of the corner!
Richard Parker: And there’s the roaring elbow! That’s the Family Affair!
On the outside Solomon and Red are throwing lefts and rights. Meanwhile, Cecilia covers!
DING DING DING
Vince Howard: Here is your winner, CECILIAAA RRRYYAAAAN!!!!
Nick Stuart: Wow! What a showing from Cecilia Ryan tonight!
Richard Parker: I don’t think anyone here has anything to be ashamed of in this one.
Nick Stuart: Except maybe Alexander Redding for hiding behind us here.
Richard Parker: I don’t know, he might have a bright future is commentary when he retires.
Cut to commercial.
