We have a press conference coming later tonight. We see a table and chairs set up with mics on the tables. It will involve Mister Centra's next title defense.
Wild Boys w/Doomsayer vs Iron Clad.
Skull did not walk down with his tag team as he's getting ready for the press conference. Ultra Clarion was in control over Revolver. Then we tossed him into the ropes and went for a back body drop but Revolver hit a swinging neck breaker and covered but only got a one count. A DDT led to another pin attempt.
After a bit Clarion regained the advantage. Instead of tagging out, which Skull probably would have instructed, he kept on the offensive attack. Again he tossed Revolver into the ropes. This time he went for a clothesline but Revolver countered into a crucifix pin attempt. A close two count. A bit of offense then Clarion made a desperate tag.
Destructon 4300 came in and worked on Revolver. His offense was brutal but short. Revolver countered and after some good offense he finally tagged Evolution in. He was pumped up and almost literally decapitated Destructon with his Decapitator finisher. He covered and before Destructon could find strength to kick out or Clarion realized what happened the ref counted three.
Winner: Wild Boys by pinfall.
Before Iron Clad could attack them the Wild Boys escaped the ring. They were walking up the ramp when Butchers of Aethra ran out and attacked them. While the Wild Boys had just been thru a match they had Doomsayer to keep things even. Officials came out to separate the teams.
In a plush suite Nora Pelf is watching her boys attack Wild Boys and she smiles. Then her phone rings.
Nora Pelf: Yes? That is correct he has a match on next card. We will have a car pick him up, take him to the show and quickly usher him to the locker room. I want no monitors or other technology in there. We must keep him in the dark. While these steps might be costly they will pay off as he makes us more and more money. Especially when he becomes Cosmic Champion.
Prime Colonizer w/Magnus Colby vs Endgame.
Colby wants his man to get payback on Endgame. The savage primate started strong. Endgame did not take long to flip the script and wear down Colonizer. He applied the Rolling Figure Four but Colonizer used his power to get out. Endgame continued to dominate the action and when he went for his submission finisher again Colonizer had all he could take and he tapped out.
Winner: Endgame via submission.
Colby was upset that his man gave in and didn't get the job done. He waved to the back and out came Splatter and Adam Traitor. They rushed Endgame and attacked him. He put up a good fight but once Colonizer recovered enough to join in he had no hope. Endgame was face down on the mat as Colby led his men to the back.
It is time for the press conference and we see Skull and Mister Centra sitting at the table. The CLAW Cosmic Heavyweight Championship is sitting on the table in front of Centra.
Skull: Thank you all for being here. As you know Centra is the champion and he has a lot on his plate. There is a PPV coming up, Faction Warfare, and he will be leading The UnFourGiven to victory proving we are the best faction. However he still has to defend his title. So I went on a search to find a worthy opponent. Someone that has shown the power, the agility, the fortitude and the ability to take Mister Centra to the limit. I finally found such a man. Mister Centra will have to be on top of his game. I know he will be. Please welcome his next opponent.
There is some clapping and out comes none other than...Murtak the Merciless and his side kick RJ City. They take their seats at the table.
Reporter: Are you serious?
Murtak: Damn right he's serious. I am FINALLY getting the respect I deserve. A shot at the top prize in the business. I will take full advantage of it. I am your next Cosmic Heavyweight Champion.
RJ City: Unless Centra is on top of his game like the floating skull thing said.
Murtak: (turns to face RJ and stares at him with fire in his eyes) Will you shut up. Just sit there and look confused. Even you can't mess that up.
Skull: Anyways it will be an amazing match. One for the ages. I expect the largest box office we have ever seen.
Reporter: Do you have anything to say Mister Centra?
The champion looks over at Murtak.
Mister Centra: I'll make you famous.
Murtak: I'm already famous. Murtak Mania runs wild across the galaxy. Murtak Maniacs are everywhere and they will cheer me onto victory.
Skull: OK let's wrap this up. Let's get some face to face photos.
With that the two combatants stand up and get close. Murtak is looking up at Mister Centra. He then he calls RJ over. He whispers into RJ's ears and RJ nods. He gets down on all fours and Murtak stands on his back so he is close to being eye to eye with the champ. The cameras are clicking as they stare at each other. The men put their fists up as pictures are still being taken.
The Unholy Three (Chaos Supreme and Team Supreme) vs Diamond Elite (Sly Drury, Street Soldiers and Overtime) in an Elimination match.
Rune Larrs and Skiver started the match. Larrs really took it to Skiver. He made a cover a couple times with no success. He tagged his partner Actagon in. The Greek god hit a running power slam and covered but only got a two count. He quickly went to the top rope and hit his Grecian Sunset. Skiver could not recover in time and was pinned. With his elimination the teams were even at three apiece. The announcers remind viewers that the winning team will be involved in the PPV, Faction Warfare.
Patch ran in and tried to attack Actagon but he ducked. After a couple minutes of back and forth Actagon tagged Larrs back in. After a bit he hit Milky Way Mauler but Patch kicked out. He tagged Actagon and they performed their tag finisher Mega Drive Cluster. Larrs rushed Diamond Elites corner causing Sly and Overtime to drop off the apron in a defensive move. Actagon hooked Patch's corner and the ref counted three. He was eliminated.
Sly was flabbergasted. He went from his team being up four members to three at the start to now being down three to two. He ordered Overtime to get in. As Overtime and Actagon walk around the ring Sly waits till Actagon's back is to him and he attacks him. The ref makes him return to the corner but the damage is done.
Overtime applies the Rings of Saturn. Seeing Actagon wasn't close to tapping he released the hold. He nailed a Targeting Spear. Followed up with a Titan drop on the ring apron and then another Targeting Spear. With Diamond Elite finally on a roll Sly was ready to get in and called Overtime over for a tag. He hits I Run This Fed a couple times and makes a cover. After Actagon kicks out Sly tags Overtime back in.
Overtime with some offense and another Targeting Spear. Sly tagged back in. He hits I Run This Fed and Actagon is having problems standing. A helicopter side slam and Sly goes for the cover. Larrs comes in and breaks the pin attempt. Sly hits yet another I Run This Fed. Actagon is now busted open and bleeding. Instead of attempting a pin Sly gets Actagon up to his feet and nails him with one more I Run This Fed. Actagon crumbles to the mat. The ref stops Sly from doing anything else and checks on Actagon. He looks out of it. The ref calls for the bell and declares Actagon eliminated. Medical staff come down, put him on a stretcher and carry him to the back. Both teams are down to two men each.
Chaos quietly gets in the ring. No easy task for one so big. Sly turns around and Chaos performs a snapmare. Sly scrambled to his corner and quickly tagged out. Chaos uses Run of the Bull to wear Overtime down. Then he slaps on Bow of Defeat. It takes awhile but finally Overtime can not take anymore and verbally submits. Sly looks panicked. He slowly gets in the ring. Chaos stalks him. As Sly makes his way around in the ring Larrs jumps in and hits him from behind. Chaos kept putting Sly in the Bow of Defeat and Sly kept finding a way to get out of it. Sly was starting to look fatigued. Chaos with Run of the Bull and a pin attempt for a two count. Chaos had an evil smile. He let out a primal yell and slapped Bow of Defeat. This time Chaos Supreme's Alpha Stone was glowing. Sly tried to hold out but eventually it was too much and he nodded his head when ref asked if he wanted to give up.
Winner: The Unholy Three by eliminating all Diamond Elite members.
Chaos stands over Sly and smirks at him. His team knocked Diamond Elite out of the PPV Elimination tournament and put his team in. Meanwhile Larrs leaves to go check on his tag partner and friend.
Tonight there is a Wiggy's The View. Her guest is number one contender Murtak. We then go to the ring where Chaos Supreme is waiting with a mic.
Chaos Supreme: Last card we of The Unholy Three decimated Diamond Elite in an elimination match. So we will be going to the Faction Warfare PPV where we will do the same to two other teams proving our superiority. Then I will take on Mister Centra for the Cosmic title. Well assuming he doesn't lose the title to Murtak the mindless. The only hiccup in our dominating performance was the beating Actagon took. As the true warrior he is he refused to give up and was taken out of the match against his desire. He would have preferred to be carried out on his shield than a stretcher. For now he is healing and his partner is with him. Rune Larrs has match tonight in the main event against that weasel Blue Dazzler. I would not want to be Blue a Rune is in a most fowl mood. This will be more of a preview of what's coming at the PPV.
Speedster vs US Patriot II w/Adam Blast in a CLAW Light Speed Championship match.
The announcers point out this title match was Speedster's way to thank Blast for their recent match. Patriot started quick but Speedster countered and hit a Flash Drive. Patriot wasn't finished. He got on a roll and it seemed he might get the win and the title. But Speedster wasn't a fluke of a champion. He used his quickness to his advantage and when he hit Eye of the Hurricane it was all over. Both men shook hands after as fans applauded.
Winner: Speedster via pinfall to retain the title.
A video of Mister Centra training for his match with Murtak as Skull watches him. He's doing push ups than one hand push ups, jogging, hitting the punching bag, jumping rope and pumping iron. After that he's facing the camera drinking some water and wipes sweat.
Mister Centra: This will be a huge challenge for me. I am determined to retain my championship. I will find a way and beat Murtak the mindless.
Skull: I think it's Murtak the Merciless.
Mister Centra: Eh whatever.
As we get ready for the next match we see Nora Pelf, a couple of her security detail and Mr. I making their way to the ring. A ringside fan holds up a poster of Infinity-Plex. Nora motions to it to her detail. One of them rushes over and takes the poster ripping it up. Mr. I turns to see what is happening but Nora quickly directs his attention to the ring.
Mr. I w/Nora Pelf vs Tharkas.
Tharkas begins by completing about humans again. He says while Mr. I was not a human his manager was. Then he hit Mr. I with the mic to start the match. Tharkas was dominating the action. After a couple close pin attempt Nora decided to get involved. She got Tharkas's attention. The two exchanged heated words for a bit. Then Tharkas turned around and got blasted. The rest of the way Mr. I dominated. He wrapped up the W after a reverse power cauda. Nora and her security detail quickly ushered him to the back right after the match ended.
Winner: Mr. I by pinfall.
A promo video starts and we see nicely shined Italian leather shoes. The camera starts to pan up as a deep male voice over goes "woman want to be with him, men want to be him". We see nicely pleased black slacks. Then the camera comes up to a firmly fitted tuxedo. "He has squeal appeal." The camera continues up and shows a pigs face. "His name is Ham, Mayham." Coming Soon flashes across the screen. Mayham winks then lets out a soft snort.
The Cosmic Knights vs Level Up.
Sur and Bex showed the importance of experience and teamwork. They controlled the action and kept Player Dos in their half of the ring so he couldn't tag out. Sur hit an Exquisite Enzuigiri and made the pin.
Winner: The Cosmic Knights by pinfall.
We see the set of The View and Wiggy is relaxing on her chase lounge chair.
Wiggy: Welcome my wovlie wiggies to the latest The View. Welcome my guests, Murtak the Merciless and his side kick RJ City.
They come out to a mixed reaction and take their seats. RJ has his almost ever present coffee mug.
Wiggy: Let's get right to it. You have a big match coming up. The biggest of your life. Would you describe your chances of winning as zero or none?
Murtak: (gives Wiggy a dirty look) Ha, ha, hardy ha. I would ask if you are trying to be a stand up comedian but I'm not sure if you've stood up in years. As far as my match I have been training for this opportunity my whole career. I will show Mister Centra what's up and take his title for mine.
Wiggy: Any special plans to try and make that happen?
Murtak: Nope, just intense training.
RJ City: Huh what do you mean? Don't you remember all those plans we came up with the other night? Like putting brass knuckles in the front of my underwear, taping a stun rod to my leg...um trying to get in the area early and putting things under the ring, blackmailing the ref...
This is when Murtak gets up and slaps RJ.
RJ City: Ouch!
Murtak: Shut up you caffeinated buffoon.
Wiggy: Well, that sure was enlightening.
Murtak: (turns toward Wiggy) You can edit that out, right.
Wiggy: I can. I won't however. Well that's our show. You saw it here on The View. I had the host of another talk show on MY show thus it's the best show.
Murtak motions at RJ who doesn't get what he wants. Frustrated beyond belief Murtak grabs the mug from RJ and goes to toss the coffee into Wiggy's face but nothing happens. He looks into the mug, gets a confused look on his face and turns the mug upside down. Nothing comes out and Murtak looks at RJ who shrugs.
RJ City: I was really thirsty boss.
Rune Larrs vs Blue Dazzler.
Rune came down and looked to be in a foul mood. Both men went back and forth awhile then Rune's power took control. He rocked Dazzler with multiple Tomahawks, the last one led to the pin.
Winner: Rune Larrs by pinfall.
Chaos Supreme came out to the stage after. Once Rune joined them they faced the crowd in a sign of dominance.
Centauri walking in back and enters his and his brothers locker room and Nebula is there. Nebula gets up and hugs his brother.
Nebula: Welcome back. How ya doing bro? Ready for our match tonight?
Centauri: I'm great and heck yea. I'm more than ready to get back to wrestling.
Nebula: I'm sorry I didn't make Chaos pay...
Centauri: (cutting him off) Don't even sweat it. We will get our payback. Believe that. Our family has always done that and we ain't no different. His time is coming.
Mayham vs Vacant.
The CLAW debut for Mayham. He came out wearing his tux and with a beautiful Balua woman on his arm. Her long purple hair looking nice against her light blue skin. When he got to the ring he took off his jacket and tie. Then he rolled his sleeves up and got in the ring.
Vacant was dominating the action early on and made a couple pin attempts. Then Mayham got mad and started fighting back. He was really giving it to Vacant and got a close two count. He just couldn't seal the deal. Vacant then fought back and put Mayham in the Spinecracker and made him submit.
Winner: Vacant via submission.
An announcement that there will be a press conference on the card after the Faction Wars PPV. It is regarding new talent signed to CLAW.
Endgame vs Splatter w/Magnus Colby.
Endgame was fired up for this match and Splatter was not ready for that. Endgame almost won the match right out of the chute when he hit a Corvus spinebuster and covered for a two count. A little more offense then a diving headbutt led to a three count.
Winner: Endgame by pinfall.
When the match ended Magnus started motioning to the back. No one came out and he was looking frustrated. Then suddenly Adam Traitor came out to the stage. Well he was thrown and crashed into the stage to be exact. Then Wolf walked out and wiggled his finger back and forth at Magnus. Seeing this Magnus stared at Wolf a bit, looked up at Endgame in the ring, back to Wolf and then he took off, hopped the barricade and ran thru the crowd.
We see RJ City rubbing Murtak's shoulders back in their locker room as they get ready for Murtak's title shot. Then we go to The UnFourGiven's locker room. Skull is giving Mister Centra a pep talk. He is saying this is the toughest challenge of Centra's career but if he can pull off the win it will cement his name in the history of wrestling.
Gen 3 vs Insert Team Name Here.
The announcers talk about how Cringe and Grovel look more confident than ever. Also how they have been in the back talking about someone coming soon and things will be different once he arrives.
As far as the match Cringe was all over Centauri early on. Perhaps the younger brother is dealing with ring rust. Cringe tags Grovel and they perform their tag finisher. It almost worked as Centauri barely got his shoulder up in time. Grovel kept the heat on but soon as made a mistake Centauri lunged for his corner and tagged out. Nebula took it to Grovel and wore him down with his Cetus Sleeper. Grovel was able to escape the first couple times but the third time he could not.
Winner: Gen 3 by submission/sleeper.
A promo video with a plain white screen and a voice over. "Even the most battle toughened and bravest feel their blood run cold when they see it. Soldiers, warriors, assassins and soulless killers run when they see it fluttering. Nothing, NOTHING strikes fear in hearts like (a black flag blowing in the wind appears on the screen) the BLACK FLAG.
Mister Centra w/Skull vs Murtak the Merciless w/RJ City in a CLAW Cosmic Heavyweight Championship match.
Murtak comes down wearing a t-shirt that says "Murtak Maniacs" on the front and "And new Cosmic Champion..." on the back. RJ has a mug of coffee. Mister Centra came down and pretended to be tentative about this match as Skull tried to encourage him. There was a guest ring announcer who pumped up the introductions as if this was Match of the Year.
Mister Centra played around with Murtak for a couple minutes then went for the pin but Murtak kicked out. Another pin attempt and another two count. Centra mockingly made a face of shock and then of worry. He followed it up with a Vector One Verve. He placed one foot on Murtak as he flexed and the ref counted three.
Winner: Mister Centra by pinfall to retain the title.
Skull got in the ring after and handed Centra a marker. Centra signed his autograph on Murtak's forehead. Then Skull handed him his phone and Centra took a selfie with Murtak. Next Centra waved at RJ to enter the ring. RJ was reluctant but finally got in. Centra proceeded to take a selfie with RJ then one with both RJ and a still groggy Murtak. Total arrogance.

Card #79 - Aethra War Dome
As the show begins the announcers talk about a commotion in the crowd. The camera scans the crowd and we see a large penguin walking thru the crowd. "Is that who I think it is?" "Well it looks like he's wearing a tux like some kind of king so I think so. "Can we use his name?" "I'm not sure. Best not to be safe." He walks down to the front row where it seems he has a ticket for a seat. He sits down and holds up a sign. It reads "#NotAPenguin". Then he holds up another that reads "Section 8 (discharge) Section". The announcers agree "the night is off to a crazy start, pardon the pun".
The Enforcers vs Street Soldiers.
The Enforcers took it to Skiver and kept him on their side of the ring. Tongsoon came close to getting the pin a couple times. He then tagged Galactic Punisher in. Before long he performed Vigilante Justice and earned the victory for his team.
Winner: The Enforcers via pinfall.

Mr. I w/Nora Pelf vs Zealos w/Oracle.
Before the match a small "Infinity" chant broke out. It made Mr. I stop and look around with a look of deep thought on his face. Nora and her two security personnel were motioning for them to cut it out. Oracle looked on with much interest. Zealos just jumped on the opening and attacked Mr. I. The early advantage did not last long. Soon Mr. I was in control and dominating. A couple unsuccessful pin attempts including after one of his finishers. Then he tossed Zealos around a bit and finally finished him off with a reverse power cauda. After getting his arm raised Mr. I was trying to ask Nora Pelf something, he pointed to the crowd, but she and her security quickly ushered him to the back.
Winner: Mr. I by pinfall.
Code Destroyer is walking in the bag with his bag when Grovel and Cringe step in front of him.
Code Destroyer: Yea, what do you two losers want?
Grovel: He has arrived.
Code Destroyer: Who? Who's arrived?
Grovel. Our glorious leader. The Chosen One. Your opponent at Faction Wars. The man that will take back the gauntlets from you. (points behind Code Destroyer) Paganax!
Code Destroyer turns around and eyes a large powerful looking man.
Chaos Supreme and Rune Larrs are sitting in their locker room when Actagon walks in.
Rune Larrs: Hey partner, how ya doing? Ready for our title defense tonight?
Actagon: I am a warrior born. So I am always ready for a fight. The doctors made me stay away for far too long. We will show everyone who the dominating tag team is.
Total Anarchy w/Oracle vs Andromeda Assassin w/Skull.
Assassin with the early offense. Once Anarchy was able to counter he went to work and owned his opponent. He simply destroyed Assassin as it looked like he was sending a message ahead of their factions meeting at the PPV. Assassin was basically out on his feet when Anarchy hit a double underhook suplex and covered for the win.
Winner: Total Anarchy by pinfall.
Code Destroyer walks into the Diamond Elite's suite. Sly Drury is talking to the Street Soldiers.
Sly Drury: What was that? Pathetic, that is what it was.
Code Destroyer: Hey guys I got a problem. You should see the guy Grovel dug up to face me for my title at the PPV.
Sly Drury: We have bigger issues. We got embarrassed by The Unholy Three and tonight Patch and Skiver lost to a couple bums. Your little match is not important.
Code Destroyer: Yea well we will see who does better at Faction Wars. Oh that's right I'm the only one who has a match on the PPV.
With that he stormed out of the suite leaving his faction teammates speechless.
Team Supreme vs Blue Dazzler and Star Slayer in a CLAW Cosmic Tag Team Championship match.
Slayer and Dazzler talk and decide that Slayer will start. After the bell it looked like the right call. Slayer was rocking Rune Larrs. After an early pin attempt he hit some hard hitting offense. He looked at his rifle for a moment then decided against using it and hit The Apocalypse. He almost got the win but Larrs kicked out at very last moment. Slayer went and knocked Actagon off the apron and tagged Dazzler in, pointing at Larrs and yelled "finish him". Dazzler performed his finisher, Optic Blinder, and made the cover. Actagon tried to get in to make the save but was a second too late. We have new tag champions.
Winner: Blue Dazzler and Star Slayer by pinfall to win the tag titles.
As the two men grab their belts and climb turnbuckles while fans cheer their faction partners, Sunman and Speedster, come out with their belts to congratulate the new tag champs. All four members of the JSA have titles. The announcers say this might make them the favorites as we head toward Faction Wars.

Card #80 - Cathedral of the Swirling Mists
As the show starts the camera pans the crowd and we see in the front row near the entrance ramp King Tux. The announcers talk about how since that's his official name they can say it. He holds up a "Section 8 Section" sign. A couple fans around him also hold up that sign.
This is the last card before the Faction Wars PPV and an additional match has officially been added. Code Destroyer vs Paganax in a Carnage Gauntlet match for the Aethran Carnage Title.
Mayham vs Tharkas.
Mayham came down wearing the tux still but this time he has a blonde Titan woman on his arm. As he came to the bottom of the ramp King Tux held up a "Ham that slams" sign. Mayham gave him a wink and a snort. Then he took off his jacket, removed his tie and rolled his sleeves up.
Sadly his entrance was longer than the match. Tharkas started with an offer of a test of strength but he kicked Mayham in the gut. He followed it up with an abdominal stretch where he grabbed the ropes when the ref wasn't looking. Then he hit Only Human and just like that the match was over.
Winner: Tharkas by pinfall.
The JSA are relaxing in their locker room. They are admiring all the titles they have. Then Sunman says they need to focus as The Unholy Three will be a formidable opponent at Faction Wars. After all while only three members they did beat a four man Diamond Elite team.
Darkest Justice w/Magnus Colby vs Wolf.
The two men slugged it out. When Wolf ran the ropes Colby grabbed his ankle tripping him up. This allowed Justice to gain the upper hand. He worked over Wolf a bit then nodded toward Colby. The manager distracted the ref so Justice could grab his Rod and smash Wolf with it. The Rod of Injustice took enough out of Wolf to let Justice make the pin.
Winner: Darkest Justice by pinfall.
As Wolf started to recover Colby gathered his man and the two beat a retreat to the back.
A reminder that the next card will start with a press conference to introduce new men signed to the CLAW roster. It is the largest group added to the roster since the start of the promotion.
The Cosmic Knights vs Wild Boys w/Doomsayer.
The Knights were impressive in this match. Bex was really taking it to Revolver and his a finisher a couple times but could not get the pin. He tagged Sur in who didn't let up on Revolver. Soon he tagged his partner and they hit their tag finisher a Double Crucifix Bomb. Bex covered and got the pin.
Winner: The Cosmic Knights via pinfall.
After the match the Butchers of Aethra ran out and jumped the Wild Boys. They especially dished out punishment to Evolution. A chair shot from Minister of War busted Evolution up and he was left a bloody mess as the Butchers returned to the back as fans booed.
Skull is talking to The UnFourGiven in a suite. He says it's time everyone understands how great they are. At Faction Wars they need to demolish Church of Truth and then whomever they face in the finals. This is their fed and they run it.
Prime Colonizer w/Magnus Colby vs Endgame.
Prime unleashed his beast early in the match. He had Endgame on his heels. But Endgame wouldn't go down without a fight and fight back he did. He hit a Rydeem Bomb and almost got the win. Then he put Prime in his Rolling Figure Four. Prime refused to quit. So Endgame hit This Ends Now. Colby distracted the ref just long enough to delay the count so Prime was able to kick out before three. Endgame starred at Colby then hit This Ends Now again. This time the ref counted three.
