WWA Champion - Cody Rhodes
Intercontinental Champion - Wade Barrett
US Champion - Sami Callihan
‘Smoke And Mirrors’ blasted through the speakers. The one and only Cody Rhodes walked down the ramp, wearing his black, purple and white robe and went into the ring. Getting the normal ‘boos’ he always got, he smirked. Taking a microphone from Lillian, he put the item to his lips, about to speak. Hearing the boos get a bit louder, he chuckled.
“Hello WWA Universe.” Cody looked out into the crowd. “From what I see, you people treat me the same way as I was treated in the WWE. Treated me like I was some sort of…villain. I, Cody Rhodes, am no villain. I’m simply here to show my presence in the WWA. To be better than my father AND brother.” Chuckles as the crowd boos him and licks his lips.
“Most of you remember me and most of these superstars and divas from the WWE. Well, this isn’t the WWE. This is the WWA. Where we can do what we want—whenever we want. Stephanie, I know you’re watching.” Smiles into the camera. “I am the future of this company, I’m gonna rise to the top. It’s my job to prove that to you and everyone who decides to distrust me. Right now, I’m gonna do what I do best, and that is to wrestle and win championships. Let’s get the show on the road, shall we?” Smirks and puts the mic down, taking off his robe and showing his matching trunks underneath.
Sitting on the turnbuckle, the American Nightmare patiently waited for the other participants.
The bell rang twice as WWA came back from commercial. WWA now had a Women’s Champion, now they were on to the Intercontinental Championship. Justin Roberts stood in the center of the ring as he announced the next match. “The following match is for the Intercontinental Championship and it is a Gauntlet Match!” The crowd went wild as ‘Hard Hitter Raggaeton’ hit.
“Weighing in at one hundred fifteen pounds and hailing from Puerto Rico.. Sofia Cortez!” Sofia came out standing in Gorilla position before she popped up with a battle cry. Slapping hands with the fans, she got into the ring pausing as she tossed her head back letting out another battle cry.
Stepping into the ring, she cracked her neck and fingers as she awaited her opponent. Eyes glaring down the ramp as she waited. ‘Bad Things’ hit as Sami Callihan made his way to the ring. “Weighing in at two hundred pounds and hailing from The Last House On The Left.. Sami Callihan!” Some of the crowd cheered and some booed as Sofia merely rolled her eyes.
Sami stepped into the ring and Sofia glared at him. The ref quickly patting both competitors down as the bell rang after he signaled. Sami and Sofia came almost chest to chest but she was a fair amount shorter. The two argued for a few moments before Sami shoved Sofia making her fall away from him. Letting out a growl, she hopped up to her feet and started tossing punch after punch after punch at him.
Sofia didn’t let up on her attack until the ref forced her to. Breathing heavily, she still glared at him and he gained momentum as he kicked her in the stomach. Doubling over, she groaned and Sami took the opportunity to Bicycle Kick Sofia as she groaned again. The clock ticking as time would soon come and a new opponent would enter.
Gaining momentum, Sofia jumped up to her feet shaking the dizzy feeling as she jumped on him and put him in a choke hold. Arms clutching around his neck tightly as he staggered before the man fell down on his butt into a sitting position. The time was running out but Sofia let go of the dazed man to perform a move.
Sofia quickly performed a roundhouse kick on the man. The man falling dazed to the mat. She quickly used all of her strength pushing him to the edge but the newest competitor was already entering the ring much to her dismay. But, Sami had already been tossed from the ring and Sofia merely blew the man a kiss as he slowly staggered to his feet.
Mia Yim came bounding into the ring as she immediately went for the attack. Punch after punch, blow after blow, the two females duked it out in the ring before they paused to gain stealth. Sofia quickly took the time to kick Mia in the stomach a few times to weaken her before she fell to the mat. Putting Mia into a Guillotine Choke, she applied the move tightly before the woman passed out a few moments after. This automatically got the woman out of the ring and Sofia grinned darkly towards the ramp at her next opponent.
‘Just Don’t Care Anymore’ hit and Wade Barrett posed at the ramp before tossing his jacket off and letting out a loud battle cry. As he stepped into the ring, he merely snickered at his opponent before he quickly locked up with her. Quickly, he tossed her to the mat and stomped on her a few times before moving away. “You give me a midget to work with?” He said loudly. “Pathetic.” Sofia went to jump on him but he caught her almost instantly.
Chuckling darkly, the man performed his finisher Wasteland on the smaller female before tossing her out of the ring. Sofia laid on the floor for a few moments and Wade merely yelled that she was pathetic and a waste of his time. Wade merely glanced down the ramp awaiting his next opponent.
‘Faint’ began playing as Britani Knight made her way to the ring. Wade merely grinning in anticipation and delight. “Now, this is what I call competition.” He said loudly. Britani tossed her jacket off and let out a battle cry before getting into the ring. Both wrestlers shook hands before they went to lock up.
Wade obviously overpowered the smaller woman who was shoved to the mat. Quickly, Britani got to her feet and licked her lips slightly. She kicked the man in the midsection repeatedly before she backed away to give him time to recover. Stepping a good distance away, she began to sprint towards the man and she met a harsh Bull Hammer.
Wade merely laughed as he picked up the dazed woman and tossed her out of the ring as she landed roughly on her face. William going to check on her as he helped her up and she walked to the back. “Some competition you lot are!” He called loudly. “Rubbish!” He snatched his belt out of the refs hands and grinned deviously before he headed to the back.
Kaitlyn was still standing in the ring with shaking hands around her new belt. This was different than the first title reign she had. She had faced a few different people at once to get her hands on this. William Regal entered the ring with a microphone in hand to interview Kaitlyn post match.
“Kaitlyn, you are the new WWA Women’s Champion. Wow, what an honor it must be for you to have that belt. What exactly are you feeling at this moment?” The English man spoke with an accent and Kaitlyn took the microphone from him gently before wrapping a shaking hand around it as she spoke.
“What am I feeling? Well..” She paused and she felt tears slide down her face. “I’m in a glass case of emotion!” She laughed softly as she sniffles through her happy tears. “This is different than last time. I fought a few lovely, talented competitors to get this belt and it as worth it.” She paused and the crowd cheered her name as she laughed softly.
“But.. Winning this means there will be several people on me like butter on hot cakes. To the females that want this belt..” She paused looking straight into the camera. “You’re gonna have to work long and hard for this baby. Cause it’s gonna take some work to pry it away from me.” With that said, she blew a kiss to the WWA Universe and slowly headed backstage as WWA headed to a commercial break.
After a few moments and a speech from Stephanie McMahon, things were about to get heated tonight on the first night of Wednesday Night Retribution. ‘Light It Up’ started playing and AJ Lee came bouncing out from backstage. Converse shoes and blue ring gear on as she made her way to the ring with a determined look on her face. Sliding into the ring, she moved to sit in between the ropes on the far side of the ring as she waited for the first competitor. AJ was awfully determined to win this match and she wouldn’t let anything get in her way.
‘You Can Look, But You Can’t Touch’ hit as Brie Bella came out not bothering to even look at anything or stop before she went out to the ring. She was solo which happened on rare occasions but she was glad to be alone. Sliding into the ring, she blew a kiss out to the WWA Universe before she glared at AJ. The ref quickly pat both competitors down as Justin Roberts quickly spoke.
“The following match is a Gauntlet Match for the WWA Women’s Title. Participants must toss each other out if the ring and be the last one standing in order to win. Once your feet hit the floor, you are out.” He paused inhaling a sharp breath. “Every three minutes a new competitor will enter the ring. Introducing at this time, AJ Lee and Brie Bella!” The crowd roared as the ref signaled for the bell.
Both divas quickly locked up with Brie overpowering the smaller woman. Brie quickly shoved AJ down to the mat and she grinned as AJ merely rolled over onto all fours and grinned sadistically at the twin. Standing up, AJ quickly jumped on the woman and began hammering her fists on her as the ref quickly separated the two.
Brie quickly recovering as she kept her distance before kicking AJ in the back as she fell to the mat again. Feet stomping on the shorter woman as Brie crouched down to put the girl in a Camel Clutch. Hands folded beneath the chin of the shorter woman as she stretched the girls head back tugging roughly as the girl cried out in pain. Brie let go after a few moments and already, two minutes had gone by.
AJ laid still trying to recover before Brie gripped onto her hair. Once Brie had pulled her to her feet, AJ retaliated by elbowing her in the stomach several times. She ran to the ropes bouncing off as she tackled the woman to the mat. “Ten! Nine! Eight!” The crowd and timer counted down as AJ kneed the female in the back of the head before a new competitor came in.
A sound of laughing could be heard before Natalya’s music hit. A determined grin in her face as she tossed her Louis Vuitton cape aside and Stephanie quickly folded it up. “Go Nattie!” Stephanie said into her headset. The men around her still commentating as Natalya quickly helped AJ toss Brie out of the ring. But, Brie had grabbed onto AJ before being dragged down and both females were eliminated.
AJ growled before going to attack Brie as she jumped on the female. Gripping onto her hair, she slammed her head into the floor repeatedly before refs came out to separate the two and the next competitor came out. But, they would have to wait until the two females had separated.
‘Spin The Bottle’ hit and the crowd went wild. Kaitlyn posed for a moment before slapping hands with WWA Universe members as she made her way to the ring. Quickly, she slid into the ring before eyeing Natalya for a moment.
Natalya quickly going to clothesline the woman but Kaitlyn ducked. When Natalya came running towards her again, Kaitlyn kicked her in the stomach and the woman doubled over. Kaitlyn quickly took the opportunity to weaken the woman more. Kick after kick meeting the woman’s back before she let off a moment letting the woman recover.
Once Natalya had recovered, she got up onto her feet and started punching on Kaitlyn who was now on the mat. Kaitlyn quickly retaliating as she recovers, getting a good distance away. Watching Natalya run towards her Kaitlyn quickly caught up and speared the woman out of the ring. Kaitlyn almost went with her but she clung to the ropes as she went over them.
Quickly, she gathered momentum and tucked her legs in as she swung back into the ring. Waiting for her opponent, she cracked her knuckles blowing Natalya a kiss. ‘lovepassionfury’ hit and Kaitlyn nearly lost it then and there. Lita was one of the many influences in her career and she would be facing her right at this moment.
As Lita came down the ramp, Kaitlyn had a determined look on her face. The two quickly shook hands before locking up as Lita over powered her. Kaitlyn falling to the mat before she quickly got back up. The two women performing submission after submission on each other and neither of them gave up.
Before they knew it, the last participant entered the ring. Quickly, Leva Bates got rid of both opponents but Kaitlyn had landed on her butt, feet not touching the ground as she fell in front of the announce table. Quickly, she had to think of something to get into the ring. Using her agility, she got on her hands doing a handstand as she placed her feet on the announce table pulling herself on top.
Swallowing nervously, she thought for a moment before an idea came to her. Signaling to Stephanie, Stephanie got up helping set up a ladder across the distance from the announce table and the ring and Leva looked confused. This also involved almost no stipulations. Quickly, Kaitlyn thanked Stephanie and she stood on top of the ladder.
Sprinting across the ladder, she jumped right on Leva and tackled her to the mat as she began punching her several times before letting go. Kicking the ladder down, she kicked it away and turned to meet one Superhero Kick from Leva. Falling over, Kaitlyn was slightly dazed and when she felt Leva go to roll her out of the ring she came to.
Jumping to her feet, she head butted Leva straight in the mouth and she was sure the female was bleeding. No, the female was bleeding. Her teeth catching her bottom lip as blood pooled around her bottom lip slightly. Leva was near the ropes and she was already dazed. Quickly, Kaitlyn took the opportunity to kick Leva out of the ring. Literally. The bell rang as Leva sat there before she was staggering to the backstage area.
Kaitlyn nearly started crying as she was handed a shiny belt. Tears threatening to spill from her eyes as everyone cheered. She held up her belt moving from ring post to ring post as she smiled brightly. She had indeed had a great night and made quite an impact on tonight’s match.
Justin Roberts stood in the center of the ring as the crowd cheered loudly. “Ladies and gentleman, at this time may I introduce WWA’s general manager, Stephanie McMahon!” ‘All Grown Up’ hit and Stephanie came out with a small smile on her face. Heels clicking softly as she made her way into the ring. Black dress clinging to her slight curves as she walked up the steel steps.
Justin held the bottom and middle rope while Stephanie bent down before straightening back up as she walked to the center of the ring. Justin handed her a microphone before walking to ringside and Stephanie smiled as the crowd quieted a bit. “Good evening, ladies and gentleman. I am Stephanie McMahon, Vice President of Talent Relations and General Manager of WWA.” The crowd roared as she quieted for a moment before she continued.
“As I have said at the press conference, things are gonna be different around here. Tonight, we have a few lovely matches that I’m sure you will enjoy.” The crowd roared again before Stephanie continued. “Tonight we will introduce a few of our new championship belts and crown a few winners in order to make this first night interesting for all of you.” The crowd went wild and started chanting. “Stephanie! Stephanie! Stephanie!” Stephanie gave a small laugh blowing a kiss out to the crowd.
“Now, before I get out of the way I’d just like to thank you all for coming out. This place is all from my own creation and I can promise you that I am indeed nothing like my father.” A slight smirk came to her face as she continued. “Now, lets get this night started with the first match of the night!” The crowd cheered and Stephanie moved out of the ring to sit ringside with Jerry Lawler, JBL, Michael Cole and William Regal where she would be watching and commentating as well during the matches.
