(BEX DEFENDS HIS GWF GALAXIAN TITLE)
Final Bracket Standings:

Winner of the Impossible Tournament 2130: Bex
**Immediately after the match, as Bex was raising both the GWF Galaxian Tag Title Belt and the GWF Galaxian Title Belt, the Aethran War Anthem blares across the arena sound system!! Out rushes 4 men, two of which we know...Aethran Overmaster & Turmoil...but two others we do not recognize...and the 4 men brutally beat down Bex!! After several minutes of the beatdown, Overmaster grabs hold of the GWF Belt, while the two unknown Aethrans grab hold of the GWF Tag Belts, raising the belts high....THE GLADIATORS HAVE RETURNED!!!

2131 is beginning!! What happened in the 2131 booklet has now taken place. But here are a few notes to bridge what was going on in my fed and how it connected to the book:
- For those that may remember, during 2130, Lope kept, at different times, sniffing the air, as though he could smell something. Well, that something was Wolf, as Wolf was “on the hunt”, scouting Lope to learn more about him. Everytime Wolf was in the arena, watching and scouting Lope, Lope would somehow "recognize" the scent, and run off looking for the source of the scent.
- And, if some of you might remember, many of the AniMen, especially Prime Colonizer and Swarm, kept dealing with confusion, memory loss, disappearing from the arenas, ect, throughout the year. It has been discovered that it was Ultramantis Black and his tampering with the mysterious Black Skull Staff he traveled to the future to find. He did find it, and began unlocking the mystical power held within the relic...leading him to nearly control the AniMen with it. The reason Monolith was not affected by the staff’s powers is because Monolith had gone through an Aethran Cleansing before, which somehow blocked him from being put under the “spell” of the staff. The same could be said of Lope, but not because of a Cleansing (he did not have one), but because of the effects of the Transevolver. This news of Ultramantis Black being the one who was causing the problems with Swarm (especially) is one of the leading causes of the split between Black and Swarm.
Now that those notes are now out of the way...The GWF’s opening show of 2131 is set and ready! Deimos Perennial 2131 @ The Deimos InterGalactic Arena, longtime home of the GWF, has fans excited and ready for more GWF action!! Here is the line up!!
(Again, my fed has about 1-2 months of an “offseason”, where initial teams are settled, debuts take place, and exhibition matches are held. Now is the time for the official “season” of the Galaxy’s premiere sport to begin!!)
1. Star Slayer vs. Thantos - What an opening match to what could very well be one of the greatest years the GWF has seen yet! Star Slayer, the original Star Warrior from the alternate universe, has arrived, and his first match will be against Thantos. Although this is not the original Thantos, many insiders feel that THIS Thantos is a perfect embodiment of the original in spirit and ego. Thantos is looking to start 2131 out strong, and is ready to put down Star Slayer at the very start of the year, “to get rid of the trash, and move onto bigger and better things.” Star Slayer is ready for a fight, and looks at Thantos as just another match, just another win. “Surely this goof is not in the same league as the real Thantos I faced thousands of times in my universe. This guy should be a cakewalk.”
2. Fhanna is quite upset about many things at the moment. She failed to wear the Women’s gold around her waist, and ended 2130 in a bad way by losing to the Red Giantess, Rhea. And now, add in Catfight from her original universe...and it seems as though the “Material Girl’s” world is falling apart. Fhanna has promised Colby that she will make very short work of “another one of your (Colby) sluts”. But Catfight doesn’t look like she will take a loss that easily. Not much is known about her, but what has been seen so far is impressive. And the fact that the two have a history from their original universe could prove to make a great match.
3. Last Rites vs. The Deserters - Well, what was old seems to be new again. Bishop Hell & Coven Black have joined forces once more, and are bringing their own brand of terror to the GWF. But also, Tharkas and Adam Traitor have reformed their hated tag team. Now, The Deserters are wanting vengeance on Last Rites, and Colby wants revenge against Bishop Hell.
4. First Round of the 16-Man Tournament to crown the 1st ever FTR Champion - The FTR is making their appearance, as 16 of the 18 competitors will step into the ring in a tournament. Only the 1st Round will be held on the card (with the rest of the tournament held later). The 8 First Round Matches:
Dr. Destruction vs. Mark Steele Totally Awesome vs. South Beach Psychopath The Electric Axe vs. Faller Plethador vs. Painkiller Disciple of Terror vs. Swerve Duke of Destruction vs. Bull Railey Red Talon vs. Stylish Assassin Alex Grace vs. Blue Chip
6. Swarm & Wolf vs. Prime Colonizer & Lope - One of the more exciting matches on the show, as it is the return of the Living Legend, Wolf! And not only that, he will be facing off against “himself” as Lope will be on the opposite team from him. Not to mention, maybe now that the truth has been found out, perhaps Swarm and Prime Colonizer will not have to deal with the dizziness and confusion of the effects of Ultramantis Black’s staff.
7. Shayne vs. Eydilon in a GWF Galaxian Title Cosmic Cage Top Shot Match - These two men are embroiled in the Galaxian Title scene. Shayne was the man who finally was able to defeat Chaos Supreme and take the Belt from him. But in the Impossible Tournament, their rematch ended with Chaos coming out on top, once again with the Belt. But then Harbinger, who now is Eydilon, defeated the Monster, Chaos. But then Bex ended IT with the Belt. Now, Shayne & Eydilon step inside the ring, in a cage no less, to determine who will face off against the Champion at GWF #59.
8. Overtime vs. Psyclone in a Titan Death Match - If there was ever a match that OT feels he needs to win, it is this one...on numerous levels! First, this is his first match as the “veteran Titan”, since Payback is gone. 2nd, this is his first match against the man who violently ended Payback’s career. OT says he is ready to take the fight to Psyclone. But is he? Psyclone is a hardcore wrestler that the GWF doesn’t see much. Sure, there are those like Tricks, Nosfera, and Turmoil...but Psyclone LIVED the hardcore indy scene. Titan Death Matches were normal matches to the promotions Psyclone bled and learned in. Now, Psyclone wants to bring that level of violence to the GWF, and already has by sending his hero, Payback, into retirement due to extreme injury. Who will come out on top of this one, as two Titans face off?
9. Turmoil, Fist & Probation vs. Minister of War, Mayhem Unleashed & Havoc in a 3-Man Tag Team, No DQ / No CO Match - Many are saying that this match should be the headlining match...and maybe it should be!! The new Gladiator team looks imposing. But so does the other side of the Aethran table. Throw in the No DQ / No CO rules...and this is a bloodbath waiting to happen…
Bex is coming off a spectacular performance at IT, but he's really gonna have to prove his salt by retaining his strap against an INDESTRUCTIBLE force... Meanwhile, the Real Ordeal needs to dust himself off and take care of business inside the cage... A win over Eydilon is crucial at this particular moment...
GWF #58 Deimos Perennial 2131 @ The Deimos InterGalactic Arena
**The show opens up with the Aethran War Anthem blaring across the arena...as the Aethrans make their way to the ring! Overmaster takes the mic, glares out at the audience, then begins to speak...but before even one word comes out, MONOLITH steps out from the back! Overmaster bristles at the sight of of one of his oldest and greatest enemies. Overmaster challenges Monolith to come to the ring and face him...but Monolith smirks. On the GalactiTron appears Commissioner Euritar...Euritar says that he apologizes to the GWF fans for missing the mark for the opening show of 2131. But he is going to make things right: Tonight, Monolith will step into the ring against his greatest rival, challenging the Aethran Overmaster...and it is happening...RIGHT...NOW!! With that announcement, Monolith made his way to the ring…
*Monolith shocks Overmaster, along with the Aethrans at ringside, scoring a quick win over Overmaster with a Crashing Stampede
**Immediately after the match, the other 3 Aethrans jump into the ring, but Monolith escapes before they can reach him. The Leveler then tries to stop Monolith, but he, too, becomes the victim of a Crashing Stampede, as Monolith escapes to the back room!
**As Thantos is waiting in the ring for Star Slayer, the camera switches to the back, where Star Warrior is approaching Star Slayer, yelling at him for breaking the “bro code” and stealing Nova (?). As Star Warrior arrogantly walks up to Slayer, Star Slayer just as quickly kicks Star Warrior in the gut, then lays him out with THE APOCALYPSE onto the concrete floor!! Slayer kips up back to his feet, and keeps on walking to the ring like nothing ever happened, leaving behind a crumpled, unconscious Star Warrior!!
*Thantos takes Star Slayer down, locking him in the MASTERLOCK, after Darkest Justice interfered and smashed Slayer in the head with his staff (Colby then handed Justice an envelope full of money, then Justice walked away, counting money and pointing and laughing at the now-unconscious Star Slayer)
**Catfight approaches Justice as he walks through the curtain to the back area. Catfight is not happy that Justice was working with Colby...but Justice shrugs her opinion away, stating, “It was business, babe. I ruined Star Slayer’s debut...and, look at the money I have to take you out and wine & dine you. Go win your match, then let’s go out…”
*Catfight wins her debut match over Fhanna via a crucifix
*Last Rites takes the win, defeating The Deserters after Bishop Hell laid waste to Adam Traitor with the HELLFIRE
**A short video is shown, showcasing the up-and-coming stars of the GWF’s “training ground”, the FTR...After the video, a face the GWF has not seen in several years appears on the GalactiTron...Encubus! Commissioner Encubus welcomes the fans to experience the future of the GWF: FTR! He thanks the GWF for the opportunity to give these young stars a chance to shine in the GWF ring, saying that this will be the first round of the FTR Championship Tournament…

**Darkest Justice and Catfight are walking out into the arena garage, dressed up for a night on the town. Scoop tries to get a few words from them, but both Justice & Catfight ignore him, get into a very expensive car, and drive out of the garage, peeling out as they leave the parking garage…
**GWF Galaxian Title Top Shot Cosmic Cage Match** (Shayne vs. Eydilon)

(SHAYNE EARNS A SHOT AT THE GWF GALAXIAN TITLE)
**Swarm is with Wolf in the AniMen locker room. Swarm asks Wolf if he is ready to step back into a GWF ring again. Wolf answers with a loud, “OWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!” With that, the two head to the ring…
(UltraMantis Black comes out for special guest commentator for the Swarm & Wolf vs. Mandrill & Lope match)
*Swarm & Wolf vs. Mandrill & Lope ended in a wild Double DQ (The match was normal, until Swarm tagged out to Wolf. Once Wolf stepped into the ring, Lope was set off, as Lope charged into the ring and attacked Wolf! Both teams then fought & brawled, not paying any attention to the referee, leaving the referee with no choice but to disqualify both teams)
**Titan Death Match** (Psyclone vs. Overtime)
*Overtime scores a huge win over Psyclone, spoiling his debut in the GWF, after smashing Psyclone in the head with a floating vid monitor, followed up with OVERTIME RULES
**After the match, Psyclone launches an assault on Overtime, smashing him with vicious chairshot, crumpling OT to the mat. Psyclone then nailed OT with a Psycho Spear through the ropes and to the floor!! Officials were quickly there and broke up the attack before more damage could be done…
**Scoop is in the back with GWF Champion, Bex. Scoop asks him about his BIG title defense against the monster, Chaos Supreme. Bex is about to answer, when Ghena appears out of the shadows and attacks Bex!! Ghena is beating down Ghena as Sur walks up, talking trash to his former tag team partner, Bex...Ghena keeps bashing Bex with forearms, but Bex keeps trying to reach Sur...when just as Sur was preparing to level Bex with a punting kick to the head, Paganax rushes for the save!! Paganax sends Sur flying through a nearby door, and then a big chokeslam to Ghena plants Ghena through a table and to the concrete floor! Paganax looks down on a recovering Bex, then turns and leaves, leaving Bex with a confused look, as Bex looks at the shattered door (where Sur was thrown through) and a destroyed table (where Ghena was slammed through)...
