Showdown: Episode Eighteen.

Introduction.

We are TAPED at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, New York joined by good ol Jim Ross and Jerry "The King" Lawler. Jim Ross goes over the events of Hell on Earth and brings up the return of Mark Adkins. King questions what will happen with the World Champion and the Xtreme Champion being in the ring at the same time. He also questions what's going to happen in just a few seconds.

Danielle Worley is in the ring as the crowd chants "She's a Whore!" to the amusement of Lawler. She introduces Lars Douglas who struts down to the ring. Ross says that Lars doesn't want to waste any time in taking care of business tonight. Lars enters the ring, grabs the microphone, and demands Chris Falkenyork to make his way out to the ring. Falkenyork makes his way out sporting a "Shotgun is my BFF" shirt. Falkenyork doesn't look to thrilled at this time. Falkenyork enters the ring.

"Chris I'm going to get to the point with all of this. Michael Lucente... Well everyone knows my opinion about him. I can't stand the guy. First off, he thinks he's a rapper. Give me a break! My next door neighbor back in the day was Eminem and he learned everything he knows from me. True story! But before we go on about that. Chris, Mike hired me into this position at a time when everyone figured that you would be the one chosen as the guy to lead the Xtreme Wrestling Federation."

"It was an excellent choice!"

"I didn't ask for your opinion!"

Lawler chuckles as Chris gets this disappointed look on his face.

"I've known you for years and I know how you are. This act that you're pulling right now? I don't believe any of it. None of it. You can pull one on everyone else but remember that you work for ME! You don't pull fast ones on the people you work for! You know why Mike hired me? It's because the last time you were given the position as the guy to take charge in this place, the company shut down! Mike was not going to have that happen again!"

"I understand. I know, I know."

"I mean come on Chris. Your personal skills are shit. Your adminstering skills are non existant. You really don't have the charisma, the wisdom, OR the intelligence to run this federation the way it should be run. That's why I get the big bucks. I get the limos and you're stuck licking Carlos Shotgun's ass. Get used to it."

"I don't lick ass!"

The crowd starts chanting "Ass Licker" towards Chris who gets annoyed.

"Enough of that. Mike discussed with me everything as far as the Xtreme Championship goes and how that belt was put into place. I know exactly why you lobbied for that championship way back when it was reintroduced into the company. Well, I have a problem with that. You wanted a championship that was on the same level as the World Championship when everyone knows that regardless of which match the crowd cares about more... Cause Rage versus Dustin Holt was the match that put asses in seats but you and Carlos were the ones that got the bigger paychecks out of it. For as long as I'm in charge, that sort of structure cannot continue here! I do find it funny however that Rage... Would tell everyone how much he doesn't care about the Xtreme Championship. So what is he doing?"

"I don't know."

"Don't give me that bullshit Chris! Rage is simply a glass ceiling that is put into place. The same with every other person who's held the Xtreme Championship. So how much is Carlos paying him? What's his cut to keep Shotgun safe?"

"I don't know what you're talking about!"

Lars slaps Chris in the face.

"Don't PLAY me Chris!"

Chris keeps his head down before dropping the microphone and walking out of the ring.

When World's Collide Pay Per View Spot

Michael Dargue is walking around backstage with a big roll of extra soft toilet paper. He finds a restroom that has "Lars Douglas" in place of where the Men's Bathroom sign was. Dargue enters the bathroom and Lars Douglas is taking a shit in the handicap stall.

"Boss? Boss?"

"Is that you Dargue? Did you bring the TP?"

"Yeah it's right here."

"Hand it over nice and slow. Don't want it dropping on the floor."

Dargue lowers the roll under the stall door and hands it over to Lars.

"Did you know you're in the handicap stall?"

"Of course! More room in here, it's great!"

"I have to go, my match is next."

"Wait a minute. Michael, this is awesome! This toilet paper is super soft, it's my favorite!"

"Anytime!"

"You know what? You're a future world champion. You're undefeated! I think that... Don't worry about your match tonight. As a matter of fact, I'm giving you the night off!"

"Really?"

"You're the future here in this company. We need to keep guys like you happy. Hell why don't you join me."

"Join you?"

"Yeah."

"Sure thing!"

Dargue tries to push the stall door open and Lars slams it shut.

"Not this one."

The crowd laughs. Lars tears about ten sheets of toilet paper from the roll and tosses it on the floor next to Dargue.

"Other stall. If you keep your mouth shut and your ears open you will get far in this business kiddo."

"Hayden, at XtremeMania you and Original put on an amazing contest. At the end however, the XWF Hall of Famer walked out with the victory. What are your thoughts for tonight?"

"Tonight? Mitch... I've had my ups and downs in this company. Everyone knows that, I know it. I've said before that I would one day be the World Champion. I said before that I go out and give it everything I have. Tonight? I'm not going in saying I'm going to give it my all and let the best man win. Tonight... I'm going to win. That's all there is to it, Mitch."

Hayden looks over towards the camera.

"Lars talked about people in power holding guys down. Original... For one night, none of that matters."

Match Four: Eric Draven & Ashton Storm vs The Hellion & Ki Morbid

Worley mentions to everyone that this is a regular tag match without intergender rules which means any combination in the ring is legal. Hellion and Draven start off the match as the crowd is hot at the start. Hellion tries for a flurry of shots but Draven shoves him backwards. Hellion attacks again and Draven hip tosses him across the ring. Lawler mentions that Hellion's small size leaves him at a power disadvantage.

Eric Draven and Ashton Storm walk through the curtains after winning their match. Draven looks over towards Rage.

"You ready to go out there champ? Your boss is waiting for you. You know, Carlos Shotgun."

Draven gives off a grin towards Rage who gets pissed off and pins him on a wall. Ashton tries to intervene.

"Don't worry about it."

Draven pushes Ashton away while Rage continues to pin him on the wall.

"That's real funny Eric. You watch what happens out there... Your opinion just like Lars's opinion is going to drastically change."

Rage lets go off Draven who starts laughing at the Xtreme Champion. Ashton looks a little more concerned at this time.

Commercial Break

We return as TV_MA Mark Adkins is standing by inside the squared circle. Adkins is pacing around eating a small bag of pumpkin seeds looking out towards the crowd. The crowd chants "Mother Fucker" while cheering for the Showdown return of the Xtreme Icon. Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler go over his accomplishments and remind everyone that he's been out of action since XtremeMania. Lawler questions when he'll return to in ring action but before they can continue, the crowd continues to cheer.

"I have a lot of things to get off my chest... But not as much as what Mike Dimter's mom has to get off hers!"

Jim Ross calls that uncalled for. Jerry Lawler says it's typical Adkins and reminds people of the time where he fucked Dark Stranger's mom. Before Adkins can continue, Xtreme Champion Rage makes his way down the ring. Rage as usual is without the Xtreme Title as he's let everyone know that he's more about hurting people over the glory of carrying championship gold. Adkins backs up as Rage enters the ring.

"Rage... Are you and Dark Stranger related in any way?"

Rage rolls his eyes and looks towards the entrance way awaiting the arrival of the World Champion. Pearl Jam cues up as Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler say that the Elite Savior has arrived. Carlos Shotgun makes his way down and enters the ring as the crowd pops for the three XWF icons. Shotgun grabs a microphone as Adkins continues to smile. Rage stands his ground as Jim Ross talks about combustible elements.

"Now Lars knows more than anybody else that I am a man of controversy. And the situation between the two championships here. Carlos ha, heh... Yeah I know exactly why the Xtreme Championship was introduced. The whole world knows by now that it was part of Falkenyork's huge master plan to screw me out of my World Heavyweight Title reign. But all of that is in the past. I gotta say the expression that you and Chris made at Hell on Earth when I gave you two a big huge Elite hug. Oh man, that right there was worth every bit of hell that I put you and him through over the last year!"

The crowd cheers on that. Carlos doesn't look as enthused.

"As much as I would say it was good to see you Mark. I really thought that after XtremeMania, you would have just disappeared. Afterall we all know that without the Elite Savior, Mark Adkins has no reason to even exist."

"Hey now we're not talking about us at this time!!"

Adkins pops a few more seeds into his mouth.

"What everyone wants to know right now is how Rage... Feels about Shotgun. Because we know that there was that wonderful clause put into place way back when the Xtreme Title was bought back that... The Xtreme Champion and the World Champion... Couldn't touch each other. Was there any certain reason for that? Carlos you and Chris are like... Best Friends Forever! Surely you guys have something going on that would keep your position here in the XWF nice and cozy now... Right? Surely Rage didn't just have the comeback of the year because he wanted to go for the World Championship I mean apparently he just came back... Because he was bored? What exactly is going on in this place? I thought I was the crazy one but apparently there's some competition around here!"

Adkins spits a few seeds on the canvas. Rage continues to look on without any sort of intention on saying a word.

"So Rage, why did you come back exactly? How much did Carlos pay you to play his glass ceiling?"

Shotgun gets a little more agitated at Adkins for making accusations.

"Hey Mark... I know that possibly you've taken so many Bullet Bombs that taking another one might not be an issue for you but... I'm thinking maybe why the hell not? For old times sake!"

Shotgun drops the microphone and goes towards Shotgun before Rage stops him from going any further. Adkins shakes his head.

"I knew it! I knew it this entire time! See ever..."

Rage grabs a hold of Shotgun's World Title and smashes Adkins in the head with the belt. Jim Ross starts yelling as everyone cannot believe what they just saw. Rage looks down at Adkins as Shotgun tries to get his belt back. Rage turns around, and grabs Shotgun by the throat. Chokeslam!! Jim Ross has another heart attack as Lawler mentions that the two champions cannot attack each other. Rage just doesn't care. Rage grabs the microphone off the ground.

"Like I said."

Rage drops the microphone and walks out as Adkins and Shotgun and laid out on the canvas.

Commercial Break

We return backstage as Lars Douglas is in his makeshift office talking on his smartphone.

"Rage knew the rules and he broke them! But at the same time... I admire that!"

Josh Davis, Nick Rude, Robert Patrick, Jon Hampton, and a few others barge into Lars's office. Lars looks up and sees the group.

"What the hell is going on here?? Jon Hampton?? I thought you were DEAD!!"

All of them incoherantly talk towards Lars who is losing his patience with the group.

"What who? Hold on! SHUT UP!!"

The group all go silent at the same time. Hampton steps into the picture.

"Lars, we want to..."

"Shut up for a second!! Sorry I have a group of jobbers in here and had to quiet them down. Rage? Rage is stripped of his Xtreme Title! I don't have a choice! I do have a choice however of saying that at the next Showdown... We're going to have Rage versus Draven in a number one contender's match with the winner facing Carlos Shotgun at When World's Collide!!"

The crowd cheers on that announcement.

"Mike... I know. Trust me, I know what we're dealing with. He's in for a rude awakening if he thinks he's going to pull a fast one this time around. I gotta go."

Lars hangs up and turns his attention to the group. Hampton raises his hand again.

"Lars..."

"Hampton? What the hell do you want and how did you get in here? All of you!"

"We've been waiting for our time in this company!"

"Hampton you've been in the main event of several pay per views and you no showed all of them. The only thing that you could possibly do right now is scrub the mess that Dargue made earlier on tonight!"

The crowd laughs as Hampton looks annoyed.

"Tell you what I'm going to do. Next LIVE Showdown. We're going to have an open invitation battle royal. You all want an opportunity? That's fine. The winner of the battle royal gets a match at When World's Collide against... An opponent of my choosing. Now get out of here you guys make me wanna take another shit."

The group continue to chat Lars's ear off as he grabs a roll of toilet paper and walks out of his office.
