From the bar within The Center Of The Universe called Black and Blue:
The Dark Menace was contemplating a response to Sly Drurys question as from behind him he heard:
"And you didn't step down...Xaphan demoted you...didn't he?"
The Dark Menace turned to his right and saw that it was Shayne who had just said this to him.
Sly Drury - "Look Menace baby we need to pull forces here...there's a lot of strange stuff going on in this fed...and it doesn't seem as though Xaphan is keeping you in the fold".
Shayne - "Self preservation...pure and simple...eventually Xaphan and his horsemen are going to screw up...if we all unite...we can help him screw up...dontcha think?"
Dark Menace - "The only thing I think is that you two must have cut an extremely expensive deal with Zaratticus...well as it just so happens...I have just recently had a meeting with someone who can help us...she is a straight shooter...but wants to help bring Xaphan down...from what little I've told her".
Sly Drury surveying the area, making sure no one is within earshot - "How...who is she?"
Dark Menace - "Shes from Earth, the incomperable Val Venis eagerly signed her to the WIWF as a wrestler...but she is sure Xaphan is the one who arranged for Little Beaver and Sky Low Low to disappear...Sky Low Low especially sweetened the deal to entice her to sign...she feels indebited to him...if she starts hanging around Xaphan and does what it takes to make him think she's interested in him, while wearing a wire...I can make her believe that we can bring him justice..."
Sly Drury - "or blackmail him"
Dark Menace - "exactly...her name is Trish Stratus"
Shayne - "who's the Fourth Horsemen?
Dark Menace smiles for a second and says, "Zaratticus wanted too much huh?"
Sly Drury - "Trish could help with that I'm sure...(Sly is looking through a roster program and sees her picture).
Shayne peeks over Slys shoulder at the picture and says, "Oooh yeah...won't be a problem".
From the WIWF Employee Assistance Program within the WIWF business offices:
Snafu - "I can't thank you enough for all the counseling...youre a life saver...my first match is coming up tomorrow".
Plethador - "Remember, when you want to hurt yourself, be kind to yourself...remember self compassion...always remember - hit your opponent instead".
Snafu - "Well said...well said".
From The Crack in Time:
Little Beaver - "Mr Massif...could I ask you a question".
Massif - "Of course my friend...but please...just call me Massif".
Beaver - "Ok...Massif...do you know who the 4th horseman is?...because I have a theory..."
Massif - "I have agents combing through eye witness accounts and some possible wire tappings and may...and I stress may have some info soon...but as of right now...no"
Beaver - "What about that wrestler from the NAWC Sammael?...from what I can tell...hes just as...well nuts as Xaphan and he is from the same outer wrestling fed...he could be the fourth".
Massif - "Excellent deduction Beav, however he's not the one".
Tyler Silvermane - "Sammael and his girlfriend Salem were both world champion wrestlers in the NAWC...who convinced the vampiress Carmilla to embrace them both...Carmilla may have thought that they wanted to join Carmillas brood in the continuous civil wars within the vampiric society however...Sammael and Salem only wanted one thing out of it...to become as powerful in the ring as possible...Sammael is an opportunist...loyal only to himself...my guess is its someone from the GWF...either Sly Drury...or perhaps Thantos...he did try to break the Galactic Code and in a sense...The GWF itself".
"You're all wrong..." was what was heard from behind them all, as they all spun around to look at the female voice who said this, they noticed that it was She-Devil. They also heard from behind them several furious footprints and a voice saying, "Now were talking...Ill handle this!"
At that moment Sky Low Low ran in between Massif and Tyler, almost knocking both over, and came up to She Devil and hugged her tightly around the legs, with his head against her pelvis. He then took her by the hand and said, "my dear...are you ok?"
She Devil pushed him away with a slight look of disgust and said, "Yes I.."
Then she saw Little Beaver and said "Beavie!...and then she hugged him...Sky Low Low could be heard grunting a little.
She Devil said, "I have a lot of information regarding the horsemen...i want to help...but I dont know if I can trust all of you".
Sky Low Low, once more taking one of She Devils hands and slowly leading her away from the othet three - "Thats ok...I dont think I can trust them either...we should discuss in private...I found the remains of a 1980 Camaro that has nice seats about a mile from here over that horizon...You know...we really should sleep on it before we reveal anything..."
Beaver, with his head in both of his hands - "Tyler has anybody found any alcohol yet?
Massif - "Mr Beaver...can I ask you a question".
Beaver - "Sure...and its Beaver"
Massif - "Whats up with Sky...is he ok?"
Beaver - "Hes a stressed out and lonely owner who also has three...(swigs from a small bottle of whisky that Tyler had in his back pocket)...of them".
Massif - "Doesnt seem as though they are getting along from here...I didnt think he could run that fast".
Gotch didn't know what to make of this man from Cygnus who kept talking to himself, but one thing was for sure, he was a lot stronger than he looked. When they charged at each other and locked up, Snafu drove Gotch back into the ropes. When Torin Caelum made him release the hold he did, but then quickly hit Gotch with a lariat while yelling at the top of his lungs. Snafu then corner kicked the hell out of Gotch, backed up and charged, hitting him with a charging crossbody that completely stunned Gotch and sent him down in the mat. Snafu hooked the leg and went for the cover, but Gotch kicked out at the 1 count. Snafu looked disturbed, Torin Caelum thought but couldn't completely describe how. Snafu tossed Gotch thru the ropes and out of the ring and quickly followed him. He slammed Gotchs head into the ring steps and opened a cut on his forehead. It looked for a second that this was going to be an upset when all of a sudden, after Snafu through Gotch back into the ting, Snafu ran towards the opposite ring corner and visciously slammed his own head into the ring post sending himself to the mat. Caelum and Gotch just stared at each other for a second, perplexed. Gotch then recovered and before Snafu could continue his original assault, Gotch landed a forearm uppercut that completely rocked Snafu and allowed Gotch to get a quick cover for a 2 count. Gotch then trapped Snafu in a guillotine choke and Snafu tapped out. Gotch left the ring still perplexed, Caelum helped Snafu to his feet and patted him on the back.
Womens Singles Division:
Salem vs Phantasy
There were rumored reports after this one that Phantasy may require some facial reconstructive surgery after the beating she took. Phantasy didn't look like a sex symbol when she started this match, she looked like a determined, serious competitor; monkey flipping Salem all over the place, palm strikes and spinning kicks that were very effective. Until, Salem landed an Enzuigiri to Phantasys head that spun her head a disturbing amount to the right. From then on, it was all Salem. Multiple 450 degree splashes from the top rope, with a knee often landing on her jaw. Salems finisher WITCHING HOUR, a top rope juvi driver sealed the deal. Phantasy was carried out of the ring on a stretcher, with her head wrapped as well, she had kicked out from 6 pin attempts, Salem was too unnaturally strong.
Mens Tag Team Division:
The Greek Gods with Eris and Minion vs The Wild Samoans with Commissioner McCant
"Great Ceasars Ghost!...What is that!?!" Exclaimed McCant as Minion stepped out from behind Eris and met McCants stare. Minion just smiled...McCant actually looked afraid of him. As the ring announcements were being made, Actagon looked nervously at the attractive woman but with multiple snakes slithering about on her head and shoulders who Proteus had hired to be their manager. "Pro...we never had a manager before...Im not sure this is a good idea", "Relax Act, shes very qualified, just look at those...snakes and that...little dude we got for free...listen...just trust me bro" "Pro, where did you meet her?". At "Its All Greek To Us". "Pro, thats a singles bar". "And a dam good one too...hey...whats up with that vein in your forhead Act?".
If you ever wanted to see a match that showed how tag teaming should be done, this was the one. The Samoans double teaming was precise and powerful. When The Greek Gods knew that one on one, they could take the Samoans, they prevented them from tagging out. The momentum changed in this match an uncountable amount of times. Pin saves and distractions all over. At one point, while McCant was distracted by Eris's...snakes, Minion suddenly appeared from under the ring by McCants feet and grabbed his ankles...he screamed like a little girl. Minion laughed for a good 5 minutes. This one was the first time limit draw of any of the tournaments, and as such, since it was a draw at this stage of the tag tournament, both teams will advance to the next round.
Mens Singles Division:
Azrael with Omega Of Cetus vs Monolith with The Dark Menace.
This one will talked about for some time. Azrael controlled the opening phases of this near time limit draw. The highlights of which was he executed a perfect T Bone Suplex and cover, Monolith responded with a 2 count kickout. Monolith couldn't mount a consistent offense until he snapped. He through Azrael out of the ring and picked up the tv announcers stable, monitors, coffee and Gorillas womens match binoculars all spilling to the ground, and he hit Azrael in the head with the entire table. The head security guard radioed for back up...We have a Code Gladiator...All hands...Code Gladiator...the basically recovered little old time keeper picked up is little wooden table that he fastened together and yelled to Torin, "Thats it my boy...Im splitting...best of luck", made a sign off the cross and moved as quickly as he could towards the ramp to the locker room. Monolith then unleashed a barrage of offense that could only be described as epic. Crashing Stampedes, Torture Racks, Rib Crushers, Inverted Suplexes. Azrael had kicked unbelieveably out of 5 near pinfalls until he collapsed in the center of the ring. At this point, The Dark Menace was about to jump in the ring his adrenaline was so pumped...until he felt Omegas firm grip on his shoulder and saw Omegas face and heard him say, "Thats not happening". Monolith mounted the top ropes for THE END OF ALL THINGS, and that finished, no wait Azrael actually kicked out at 2 1/2. The arena got unnaturally quiet for a second, processing what they saw and then exploded. But so did Monolith, he gorilla pressed Azrael and through him over the top rope on top of the ring steps. At this point Azrael only heard Omega telling him to get up, and the first row telling him to stay down. Azrael got up but didnt get into the ring until what would have been an eleven count. Azrael climbed inside the ring and threw a fireball at Monolith narrowly missing him. But before Monolith could retaliate, he and Azrael were grabbed and finally separated. Monolith advances in the tournament.
No Dq Battlezone Match:
Jimmy Snuka and Andre The Giant vs Star Slayer and Darkest Justice with a third mystery member on both sides.
The ring had to be shored up in the middle before this match due to Monoliths finisher impact on Azrael.
The first wrestlers we se are Jimmy Snuka and Star Slayer. Snuka quickly controlled the offense, the highlights of which were a chair shot outside the ring and a SUPERFLY LEAP that most couldn't believe Star Slayer was able to kick out off. Some say Snuka was 15 feet in the air at the highest point of the jump, and was subseqiently used in highlight films. But Star Slayer via smashing Snuka straight in the chin with the but of his rifle and his finisher THE APOCOLYPSE, a snap DDT right onto the rifle itself enabled Slayer to pin Snuka. Then entered an enraged Andre The Giant, the crowd cheered, and the uninjured security on hand scrambled to get into position.
Andre entered the ring and Slayer charged at him and threw a shoulder block at him, he just bounced off of Andre. Andre dropkicks Slayer into the ring corner spine first and turnbuckle squashes him. Slayer soon after rebounds with a knee lift and then tries to throw Andre into the turnbuckle. He couldnt budge Andre at all, it was like trying to whip am oak tree. Andres body slam to Slayer was more like ragdolling him to the canvas. Andre then hit his BIG SPLASH and Slayers arms and legs were completely sprawled out as Andre pinned his unconscious opponent. Andre then simply kicked and rolled Star Slayer out of the ring and onto the arena floor just outside the ring.
Darkest Justice was next and pretty soon felt Andres wrath, capped off by a bearhug from Andre that was like watching a gorilla choke a hamster. Andre threw Justice outside the ring but before Andre knew it, Darkest Justice had started blasting him in the face with his metal rod his limited offense of the match, bruising and cutting open Andre. Justice just barely tossed Andre back into the ring but Justice soon fell victim of Andres BIG SPLASH FINISHER, and was unceremoniously rolled out of the ring on top of Star Slayer. Who revived briefly only to loose consciousness with his teammate on unconscious on top of him.
As a bruised and bloodied Andre stared at the curtains waiting for their opponents anchorman to appear, he heard Black Sabbaths "Iron Man" blasting over the sound system. End Of Days made his way towards the ring, Slayer and Justices insurance policy. End Of Days came out and did what he was supposed to do; he forearmed Andre, giant palm stuck him, skull collapsed him and threw him across the ring like nobodys business. One of the ring posts gave way when Days threw Andre into it, taking half the ring ropes down. But Andre ultimately did what he wanted to do and pinned End Of Days via his BIG SQUASH.
As Snuka and Andres third member, Sting came out quickly thereafter, he got into what was left of the ring and surveyed the scene.
His look of not being able to compete...dissapointment. The look on the faces of the semi conscious Slayer and Justice just seconds before he rolled End Of Days out of the ring on top of them...priceless.
From the WIWF news desk, from our friends at This Always Sucks - "The vacuum cleaner of the gods".
Jim Solie - WIWF womens wrestler and talent recruiter She Devil has dissappeared. Please if you have any information for us, please contact WIWF headquarters and the Universal Authorities immediately. Xaphans new steady Fhanna was the last to see her before she suddenly blacked out but thankfully is expected to recover soon.

From Xaphans main boardroom in the newly constructed labranyth way below the WIWF Offices:
Xaphan - "As the Fourth Horseman of the Apocolypse you did indeed aquire and consume many a fed, not so much in the ring, but from the owners post. You're reign upon the Earth was just that though...only the Earth...and in the end you couldnt even keep things under control. Austins escape, Sammartinos conditions.
Commissioner McCant - "But you dont understand...the Earth is a lot different and much more complex than the outer"
Xaphan - "Dont tell me a damn thing about the Earth, myself, Rakashan and Mahkrieg are all originally from the earth, we were all trained by the original Four Horsemen. Once we surpased them in all areas of wrestling skill and business, we learned and perfected intergalactic organized crime far across the universe.
Commissioner McCant - "Weren't you concerned that the original four would talk".
Xaphan - "Only until we had their minds completely erased...Dont worry...that is not to be youre fate...but from this point forth...you are no longer the fourth horsemen...we will be auditioning your replacement...you will stay on as interim Commissioner and part time manager and will then become a full time manager...you are dismissed".
McCant (leaving his office and mumbling to himself) "Dismiss this you well paid waste of time".
As McCant walked through the complex, he eventually got to his office, but just outside his office, he came to his new secretary's desk, "Ms Keibler...could you please step into my office to take a very important letter...no please...ladies first". As McCants stare returned to the front of Stacey, he said, please dictate this letter".
"Dear Mr Loophole, at the firm of Murphies and Law, I WIWF Commissioner McCan't would like 8 sets of 4 or 32 individual contracts created in order for 8 teams of 4 wrestlers per team to compete in an all day Battlezone tournament, for the purpose and prize of being sole ownership of the WIWF (Grunt) all assets and properties. Please have these documents produced and couriered to my office to be deivered litterally into my hands and no one elses".
Thank you Stacey...as she leaves...mercy.
McCant (to himself) - I will arrange for and work with the other 7 teams on the down low to be formed and most importantly Xaphans set to be "Murphied", all I need are their signatures on just some "standard forms allowimg them to compete in the rimg and 4 Murphies Law specials later, these forms will magically transform into these very same contracts, and one of these teams are bound to literally wrestle away from Xaphan everything he has worked for. Im sure they will use that Brymstonian lawyer, that devil is always in the details. In this case there will be fine print within the fine print allowing just about everything in the best intetests of the WIWF.
She Devil - "Yes Im fine...although I have no doubt that Fhanna had a had in this...being Xaphans main squeeze now..."
Massif - "Ms Devil...let me preface this by saying that anything you say here...stays here". "But anything you can tell us here would help us tremendously in trying to put Xaphan and his people away for a long time".
She Devil - "The original Four Horseman was the brain child of Ric Flair...He was their leader and architect...He and some of the others gave them all of their knowledge, for both inside the ring and out, most of the original four wanted to retire and pass on the skills and the legacy of the Four Horsemen. Xaphan, Rakashan and Von Mahkrieg were all from the Earth Originally. With too many restrictions and too many people now in the know, Xaphan ordered his Horsemen to have the four original ones memories erased to cover up all of the plans Xaphan had and go out to the NAWC and work his way slowly towards Earth. He also approached Commissioner McCant while he still had his fed on the Earth, made him a member of the horsemen with instructions to take over the planet. When the four original horsemens minds were wiped out, by the occultists hired by The New Horsemen, one of the four minds that was inadvertently erased, was a wrestler who had nothing to do with The Original Four Horsemen, just an up and coming wrestler who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. One of the Original Four knew what was going to happen, set up the rookie wrestler and dissappeared without a trace".
Massif - "The one who escaped"
She Devil - "Was Ric Flair...he is now masquerading as "Solar Flair", a genetic replica from Clone World". I have found all of this out from Magnus Colby, a few bugs I had planted through WIWF headquarters and brokering the signing of Flair into the WIWF". If The New Horsemen find out he is here, they are going to freak.
Sky Low Low - "Smallie Bigs back home now has the technology to pick up the freqiencies of those bugs and triangulate the reception between the bugs, Massifs hand held communicator and a large Fisher Price radio that I captured floating into our new home here...I have been listening to Commissioner McCant, he is arranging some large one day Battlezone tournament - in essence that schmuck is raffling off the ownership our fed...Beavie".
Little Beaver - "I just knew you were gonna go there". Even She Devil smiled at that one.
Sky Low Low - "I just dont know if Xaphan knows this...I get the feeling that McCant is putting the screws to him as well".
Tyler Silvermane - "The sooner we get back the sooner we can either stop this tournament or worst case scenario, enter into it and win back your fed boys".
Sky Low Low - "Definitely...I will speak with Smallie Bigs...I think its time to make the preparations to launch Operation Unchained".
Sky Low Low - "Beavie, to the Camaro...we have to make some calls".
Beaver - "Massif, can I borrow your communicator?...and stop calling me Beavie".
From Thantos Office below the WIWF training rooms:
Sly Drury and Thantos are speaking at a small conference side table within Thantos's office:
Drury - "Make this quick"
Thantos - "I brought you into wrestling...and subsequently through various business manipulations...were all here in this fed...now the only game in town"
Drury - "True"
Thantos - "Lets cut to the chase...I know all about you and your pet projects...Monolith...Epoch...Hector...turning my son and that moron Bloodline against me. Ive had you under surveillance for quite some time now...I also know that you have...at least some knowledge and repore as to The Dominion and their ahendas".
Drury thinking for a second and then - "Go on".
Thantos - "Xaphan and his three other horsemen are now completely in control of this fed...for now...but when the real threat emerges...when the Dominion invades everything will change and a shadow will engulf all".
Drury stares back at Thantos composing a response.
Thantos - "You and I are going to run this fed - (points a finger at Drury) - Together...otherwise I blow the whistle on you and your whole damn entourage and you can spend the rest of your days in jail like all the other arsonists, felonious assaulters and murderers do...picture a New Four Horsemen Of The Apocolypse - You and I, Encubus and Bloodline..."
Drury - (Still thinking)
Thantos - "What have you got to loose if you agree...nothing...What have you got to loose if you dont?...Everything"
From The WIWF owners desk - Updatepallozza - brought to you by; a mastermind, much more than four horsemen, several absorbed wrestling feds, multiple plots and backstabbings, mono syballic spies, referees who beat them selves up, escaped superstars, secret surveillance, clones for criminal activities, set ups, a prision woven into the fabric of time, a civil war amongst the most warlike society ever, a nuclear escape plan, flying office buildings, captuted authority figures, an intervention from the four wrestling gods, and last but not least 200,000 rampaging midgets and the redemption of Smallie Bigs:
High up in Mount Olympus, specifically from within the Greco-Roman department, live the four gods of wrestling, (Competition, Greed, Lust and Drama), and they had made some decisions to finally intervene on the behalf of the universe. These four gods had decided they had seen enough and ultimately felt responsible. They collectively had inspired Ric Flair to establish wrestlings Four Horsemem Of The Apocolypse, and the horsemen were well known across the globe and a force to be reckoned with. Then Flair and the others had taken three wrestlers under their wings with the idea of forming the next generation of horsemen. The most talented and sociopathic of the bunch was a wrestler who went under the name of Xaphan. Subsequently, inspired by Flair, he wanted to be a horsemen, and to use it as a front for his own criminal agendas. When Ric Flair discovered that Xaphan had ulterior criminal motives, including wiping out the original horsemens memory in order to cover his tracks, he escaped and went into hiding. Xaphan and the other two horsemen enlisted Commissioner McCant into the horsemen, with instructions via merger and acquisition to become THE wrestling fed on planet Earth, while he and the other horsemen started with the outermost fed, The NAWC and to merge, acquire and consolidate their way to and, eventually combining with McCant monopolizing all universal wrestling.
The wrestling fed that was supposed to be the most prestigious and powerful in the universe and Xaphans brainchild - The WIWF - selected as the center of wrestling excellence and to be the perfect front for criminal activity and gain. Several wrestlers that were let go by the WIWF were cloned and were starting to commit thefts and extort from the few remaining feds in the Universe. Xaphan, as an escape plan had installed within the core of the Center Of The Universe, a nuculear bomb capable of destroying the entire former moon of Earth and all who lived there.
Commissioner McCant was muliplying the issues by using his temporary power to pit self-proclaimed Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse against each other trying to in essence raffle off Xaphans own fed right under his nose as a form of revenge.
Xaphan had imprisioned all that were either standing in his way or knew too much in an accidentally discovered timeless plane of existence called The Crack In Time. Most importantly imprisioned were the original architects and owners of the WIWF - Little Beaver and Sky Low Low. Beaver and Low, through their technological know how, and loyal bretheren from their home planet including the gangster Smallie Bigs, escaped The Crack in Time, destroyed it and organized an invasion of The WIWF. A gigantic warship landed on the surface just a mile outside the Center Of Universe. As Van Halens "Unchained" blasted out from enormous speakers from the starship, 200,000 rampaging midgets in war paint led by Sky Low Low himself, "hit the ground running", invaded, occupied and secured the entire WIWF Offices and Arena during a match between The Tournament Master and The Destroyer. The invasion force overwhelmed and imprisioned Xaphan, Von Mahkrieg, Rak'ashan, Commissioner McCant and claimed re-ownership of the fed by right of possession. Before anymore violence or debauchery could be continued by the successful invaders, the wrestling gods from Mount Olympus made an intervention and put in place the following immediate changes:
- All former federations that were taken over, absorbed and dismantled were restored, including the LWF, GWF, NAWC, NWA, AWA, WCW, ECW, WWE and countless others across the universe.
- All former wrestlers of the above mentioned federations were given the opportunity to resign with their former feds or to resign with The WIWF. Many resigned with their former feds, but many also decided to remain with the WIWF, still a lot of prestige and a lot of money and a lot of unknown reasons.
- Xaphan had to destroy the nuke and repay everybody, and I mean everybody. Massif called the money he had to pay "sociopath tax" and to all of the payees it was labelled "sociopath differential".
- Little Beaver and Sky Low Low were restored as the two sole owners of the WIWF. Xaphan and Tyler Silvermane were established as permanent co-commissioners of the WIWF, Xaphan will fulfill his commissioner duties around his extensive daily psychotherapy as administered by the incomperable Plethador.
- Troubled ex referee Snafu has been restored as the full time referee for both mens and womens matches. Gorilla Venturas request to officiate the womems matches was unanimously denied, although he had much insight and experience with the sport, they couldn't get past the fact that he shaves his palms 2 to 3 times a week.
- Former gangster Smallie Bigs has given up his former life and is now the official booker of the WIWF matches and bookee for the WIWF legalized gambling that is a thriving business on The Center Of The Universe.
- Commissioner McCant returned his offices back to the Earth, Von Mahkriegs and Rak'ashans whereabouts are unknown.
- The three rosters have been reshufled and reset as follows:
Mens Tag - Road Warriors, Van Dam & Sabu, Andre & Snuka, Brute & Massacre, Slayer & Justice, Havoc & Paralyze, Thantos & Encubus, Star Warrior & Bloodline
Mens - Sammael, Calm, Bigfoot, Solar Flair, Steen, Danielson, Thesz, Mascaras, Gotch, Rogers, Race, Bockwinkel, G. Valentine, The Sheik, Hackenschmidt, Omega, Wolf, Monolith, Chaos Supreme, Aethran Overmaster, End Of Days, Drury, Endgame and Shayne.
- 3 Battle Royals to determine the first champions.
- As far as the Dominion goes, the WIWF will face this threat, as a united front.
Battle Royal results, Champion Crownings and Fed News to follow!
This continues to be one of the most ambitious endeavors on the market... To the naked eye, it might seem a little chaotic... But, you've got some serious world building going on and I simply cannot wait for more... Keep up the awesome work!
