GREAT SCOTT vs. HAYES HANLON
Back at ringside we see referee Elvis Nixon and announcer Vince Howard standing by in the ring before we cut to Nick and Richard at commentary!
Nick Stuart: Welcome back to ringside folks, we have one heck of a bout up next as Hayes Hanlon takes on GREAT SCOTT, and boy is Hanlon gonna be fired up after what happened to Impulse!
Richard Parker: Impulse is GONE, Nick, and there’s nothing Hayes can do about it! He better stay extra focused tonight, or GREAT SCOTT is gonna beat him…with his bear and his glare!
Vince Howard: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first…
“Born for Greatness” plays over the sound system here in the Grand, but after recent events we see a changed man making his way out, a new look and attitude as GREAT SCOTT taunts fans on his way toward the ring. GREAT BEAR, for his part, is still seemingly rocking out to the music playing through his sweet Beats by Dre headphones, but the crowd is none too pleased with LARGE DADDY SCOTT, who couldn’t care less about their opinions as he rocks a championship belt that we probably shouldn’t mention further.
Vince Howard: Hailing from the Greater Metro area of Great Falls, Montana, he stands in at six feet, one inch and weighs in tonight at 276 pounds…he is the World’s Greatest Scott, the Large Daddy if you will…GRRRRREEEAAAAT SCOOOOOTT!
SCOTT and his BEAR (and presumably his glare, for that matter) arrive at ringside, continuing to taunt the booing fans with a flex of his arms as he enters the ring ready for this match!
Vince Howard: And his opponent…
We Came as Romans.
White flashbulbs flicker along with the music’s growing beat. The PRIME*View soars into the cosmos, passing planets and nebulas, picking up speed and shaking as it approaches a massive black hole. A wall of white bulbs ignite in the entryway as the song’s intro crescendos, the silhouette of Hayes Hanlon lifts both arms to the ceiling, fingers outstretched. The lights dim as the music quiets, and Hayes walks out to the edge of the ramp, soaking in the spectacle and cheers of the crowd. The music builds again, and Hayes thrusts one hand into the air with the chorus.
“I FALL INTO A BLACK HOLE IN MY HEAD!”
Vince Howard: From West Linn, Oregon, standing six feet, three inches tall and weighing in at 261 pounds…the Event Horizon…HAYES! HANLOONNNN!!
He immediately starts a quick and steady march down the ramp, another bright flash of white filling the arena. The Event Horizon slides into the ring and moves toward the far turnbuckle, stepping onto the first ropes and turning to face the center of the ring.
“I’M FIGHTING THE GRAAVITY, IT’S PULLING THE WORST PART OUT OF ME!
He leans back over the post, eyes closed with his torso aimed at the ceiling. The crescendo following the chorus blasts out through the arena among the flashbulbs.
Nick Stuart: Looks like Hanlon is trying his best to stay focused here tonight after all!
Richard Parker: If he slips up even once, it could all be over!
The bell sounds off…and in a way, so too does Hanlon as he unloads some hard-hitting punches on GREAT SCOTT, sending him toward the corner. The attack continues with some chops across the chest, really laying them on thick until Nixon starts the count, getting to four just as Hanlon breaks away clean.
Nick Stuart: Hayes Hanlon taking the action to GREAT SCOTT in the early goings here!
Richard Parker: You gotta wonder how long this will last though, Nick!
GREAT SCOTT is still feeling the effects of those chops to the chest as he steps away from the corner, but he muscles through it to charge at the former Five Star Champion…who turns things around with an Irish whip, sending LARGE DADDY SCOTT to the ropes and connecting with a spinebuster on the rebound!
The crowd is ecstatic for the Event Horizon’s offense as he gets back to his feet, sizing up his opponent as GREAT SCOTT stands back to his feet before going for a swing–but that swing is a miss as Hanlon dodges it, spinning him around before grabbing the waist and hoisting SCOTT up and over for a German suplex!
Nick Stuart: What a suplex there from Hanlon!
Richard Parker: Looks like he’s not done yet, though!
Hanlon holds onto the waistlock, looking for another German suplex…but is met with an elbow to the head by SCOTT, who quickly turns about face…only to be sent back down with an explosive belly to belly suplex by Home Run Hayes!
HAYES! HAYES! HAYES!
The crowd chants the former champ’s name as he gets back to his feet, bringing SCOTT back to a vertical position himself as he sends SCOTT to the ropes, looking for a clothesline on the rebound…but GREAT SCOTT ducks under! Hanlon with a second attempt opening up, but SCOTT ducks that as well…but he doesn’t duck a leaping shoulder block on the third attempt, as Hanlon brings him down to the canvas one more time!
The crowd once again roars in approval, as Hanlon feels confident enough to go for a cover as Nixon makes the count!
GREAT SCOTT not only kicks out, he shoves Hanlon off of him!
Nick Stuart: Close call there for Hanlon, but GREAT SCOTT is clearly still in this!
Richard Parker: Hanlon better be careful here, because SCOTT could easily turn things around here!
LARGE DADDY SCOTT gets back to his feet, as does Hanlon…who gives SCOTT a mighty harsh glare, mocking SCOTT in the process! The crowd is eating this up, but it only angers GREAT SCOTT, who charges at Hanlon…running right into a clothesline! This match has managed to stay in favor of the Event Horizon, who dips into the well once more bringing SCOTT to a standing position…only to take a thumb to the eye for his troubles!
Nick Stuart: What the…!?
Richard Parker: And there it is Nick, a turning point!
Nixon admonishes SCOTT for the maneuver, to which he simply…flexes his arms? That’s right, he flexes on Nixon, before turning to the fans, and flexes on the haters in the crowd, taunting them before turning his attention back to Hanlon…who catches LARGE DADDY SCOTT right in the chin with a solid punch! Now it’s Hayes getting a warning from the ref, for the use of a closed fist as SCOTT collects himself and rushes Hanlon, swinging hard with some lefts and rights in retaliation! This culminates in a superb belly to belly suplex by SCOTT, a response to the one he took from Hanlon earlier!
Nick Stuart: Oh my, what impact there on the suplex by GREAT SCOTT!
Richard Parker: The man knows what he’s doing, Nick, and Hayes Hanlon is finding that out the hard way here by good ol’ LARGE DADDY SCOTT!
Getting back to his feet quickly, SCOTT continues the attack with some hard stomps for good measure, before bringing the former champ up to lay in some elbows to the head of Hanlon before connecting with a snap suplex! You can almost hear someone in the crowd chewing gum, muttering “good snap” as GREAT SCOTT grabs Hayes by the head, looking for a repeat performance of the suplex. Hanlon tries to fight out of this one, but is smacked hard with a right hand to the ribs by SCOTT, who sends Hayes up and over with a vertical suplex proper! Hanlon is down, and SCOTT senses the opportunity to pick up a win here as he makes the cover!
This time it’s Hayes who manages to kick out, much to the chagrin of GREAT SCOTT as the crowd cheers Hanlon on. SCOTT goes to pick Hanlon back up, but the former champ wisely rolls to the outside to take a breather. SCOTT, for his part, doesn’t allow this to go on for long, as he quickly leaves the ring to go after Hayes…who catches SCOTT by surprise with a right hand! Hayes continues the flurry of offense as we can hear Nixon starting the count from inside the ring!
Hayes looks to bring SCOTT back in the ring, but the LARGE DADDY himself has other plans as he turns things around, sending Hanlon into the steel steps with an Irish whip!
The crowd’s really showing their disdain for SCOTT’s actions here, but he just responds to it with more flexing on the haters as Nixon can be heard continuing the count!
GREAT SCOTT takes notice of this, an angry glare on his face as he turns his attention to Nixon in the ring and starts shouting at him!
GREAT SCOTT: I’M GONNA NEED YOU TO STOP THAT COUNT REF, I’M TRYING TO FOCUS OVER HERE AND I CAN’T WITH ALL THAT NOISE OKAY?
Nixon is taken aback by both the glare and the odd demand coming from LARGE DADDY SCOTT, before shouting back to bring the action back into the ring! SCOTT takes a moment to consider this, before laughing at the admonishment and turning his attention back to Hayes! Unfortunately for the man with the greatest glare in the business, however, Hanlon is back to his feet and comes out swinging, lefts and rights connecting with the body of GREAT SCOTT as Hayes looks to get back in a winning position on the matter.
Hanlon realizes the imminent danger of being counted out, and opts instead to send GREAT SCOTT back into the ring as originally intended as he follows close behind. The crowd continues to cheer Hanlon on, but that switches gears quickly when SCOTT connects with a sucker punch to the gut of Hayes! The former champ doubles over, and that’s the opening SCOTT needs as he connects with a snap suplex that drives Hanlon down hard into the canvas! The crowd continue to shower hate upon GREAT SCOTT, but he seems to be feeding off of it like ham as he continues the assault on Hayes. Elbow strike after elbow strike connects to the back of Hanlon, really wearing him down before sending him to the corner!
Nick Stuart: This looks really bad for Hayes!
Richard Parker: SCOTT’s got him right where he wants him!
SCOTT charges toward Hanlon, squishing him into the turnbuckle with a running corner splash before immediately taking some more swings at the former champion. Eventually, Nixon has had enough and begins the count, reaching four as he shouts at SCOTT to get back and away from Hanlon. This is met with another glare from SCOTT, who lets Nixon knows what’s up.
GREAT SCOTT: I’M PRETTY SURE I HAVE UNTIL FIVE, REF, SO I NEED YOU TO SETTLE DOWN WITH–
SCOTT is interrupted by a right hand from Hanlon…who yells in pain, favoring the hand he just punched GREAT SCOTT with! After being so fired up to face GREAT SCOTT, the wear and tear on the hand that was injured by Bobby Dean is becoming all too evident here, and that gives the LARGE DADDY an opening to exploit! SCOTT sends Hanlon down with another snap suplex, before flipping Hayes onto his stomach! SCOTT flexes his arms at the haters in the crowd once more, looking poised to lock in a submission hold here and now!
Nick Stuart: Hold on, what’s going on here!?
Richard Parker: I think Hayes Hanlon is about to get his back broken and made hu–
Richard doesn’t even get to finish the remark before Hanlon weakly rolls out of the ring, trying to get his head back in the game as he checks on his right hand. SCOTT is more than a little frustrated by this, sliding out of the ring as Hayes tries to fend him off…only to be sent into the steel ring post by GREAT SCOTT, who quickly sends Hanlon back into the ring as he clearly wants to waste no more time dealing with the former champ tonight! SCOTT looks to take Hanlon back to the corner, but Hayes reverses with an Irish whip of his own! SCOTT hits the turnbuckle hard as Hanlon charges after him…but is met with a rough back elbow by the LARGE DADDY! Hayes is reeling after this, as SCOTT grabs him by his bad hand and pulls him in close, hitting a massive clothesline to drop Hanlon to the canvas! SCOTT drops down for a cover, looking for the win here as Nixon makes the count again!
Nick Stuart: Oh my, Hayes Hanlon just manages to kick out there!
Richard Parker: But he’s hurt bad, Nick! I dunno how much more Hayes has in him!
Hanlon is checking his right hand here, concerned about how much more punishment it can take as we see SCOTT arguing with Nixon over the pinfall.
GREAT SCOTT: SIR I REALIZE WE’VE BEEN THROUGH A LOT BUT I NEED YOU TO FOCUS AND DO YOUR JOB, THANK YOU.
SCOTT turns his attention back to Hanlon, who slowly rises to his feet before egging SCOTT on with a weak smirk on his face.
Hayes Hanlon: Is that all you’ve got, SCOTTY!?
SCOTT looks enraged by this for some reason, charging at Hanlon…who dodges at the last minute, forcing SCOTT to hit the ropes. SCOTT looks for a running clothesline on the rebound, but Hayes narrowly avoids that as well…which sends SCOTT right into Nixon, clobbering the referee in the heat of the moment! Hayes looks for the opening here as he spins SCOTT around, hoisting him onto his shoulder looking for the sit-out shoulder breaker! FLASH POI–NO! SCOTT slips out of it…and drops down to the canvas, slinging his arm up at the worst possible place for Hanlon to take such a move!
Nick Stuart: What the hell!? GREAT SCOTT with a low blow to Hanlon!
Richard Parker: Oldest trick in the book!
Nixon slowly manages to get back up, unaware of what went down as SCOTT rolls Hanlon up in the middle of the ring. Nixon drops back down, this time to make the count…not noticing the handful of tights SCOTT has on Hayes!
DING DING DING
Vince Howard: Here is your winner, via pinfall…GRRRRRREEEEAT SCOOOOTT!
The crowd is booing heavily as Nixon raises the arm of GREAT SCOTT in victory, only for the LARGE DADDY to pull himself away before leaving the ring, choosing instead to celebrate with his BEAR (and, again, his glare) as we cut back to commentary!
Nick Stuart: I still can’t believe that after such a hard fought battle here, that GREAT SCOTT would stoop to something so low to pick up the win over Hayes Hanlon!
Richard Parker: What are you talking about, Nick? It’s the most dangerous maneuver in all of professional wrestling, and if I was a betting man I’d wager that Randall Schwartz taught him that as a gesture of gratitude!
Nick Stuart: You know exactly what I’m referring to, Richard, and I doubt Randall had anything to do with this. That said, GREAT SCOTT does now hold a big victory as he looks to win the Five Star Championship from Rezin at UltraViolence…and the champ is in non-title up NEXT against FLAMBERGE!
Back in the ring, we see Nixon signaling for more officials as he checks on Hanlon, who still looks quite hurt as we cut to commercial!
